It wasn’t until returning to my roots that I truly started appreciating the beauty and flurry of fun we have in this winter wonderland of ours. Downhill skiing aside, residents can go snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, ice-skating, or even join a curling club. And in this month’s Health & Wellness article, “Work it Out(side)” (page 18), Kourtney Jason guides you through various ventures, with the benefits/calories burned, local places to try it, and a beginner tip for each. Even when the temps are tempting you inside, I hope it inspires you to soak up the snow and opt outside.
Whether you loathe or love this time of year, remember to take a moment to appreciate the people, places, and things that abound and surround. Happy holidays!

Marshall CARES

What’s your relationship with winter sports? Do you

buy a season ski pass before the first snowstorm

of the season hits or is your idea of a winter

workout maneuvering Christmas cookies to and

from your mouth? My courtship is complicated.

Growing up so close to the Sierras meant Friday

field trips to Boreal Mountain Resort and Sunday

fundays sledding. Though

it sounds like a postcardperfect

childhood, the

reality was much different.

My inaugural experience

downhill skiing was one of

the most frigid, frightening

days of my life. I cried more

than I laughed and was on

my fanny more than my

feet. Subsequent attempts

included injuries and a

general fear factor that

I never could conquer. Needless to say, when I

moved to San Diego and traded the snow for the

sand, I didn’t miss the mountains one bit.

It wasn’t until returning to my roots that I

truly started appreciating the beauty and flurry

of fun we have in this winter wonderland of

ours. Downhill skiing aside, residents can go

snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, ice-skating,

or even join a curling club. And

in this month’s Health & Wellness

article, “Work it Out(side)” (page

18), Kourtney Jason guides you

through various ventures, with

the benefits/calories burned,

local places to try it, and a

beginner tip for each. Even

“We make a

living by what we

get. We make a

life by what we

give.”—Winston

S. Churchill

when the temps are tempting you inside, I hope it

inspires you to soak up the snow and opt outside.

Winter sports aren’t the only nod to the

season this issue. We’ve packed these pages with a

plethora of holiday fun, including “31 Ways to Give

Back in 31 Days” (page 22) where Sharon Penny

proves it is indeed better to give (of your time and

talents) than receive. Make it your mission to try

everything on the list or commit to one cause and

see just how warm and fuzzy it makes you feel.

When it comes to giving more material things

this month, because Christmas, I encourage you

to check out our Holiday Gift Guide on page 24,

chock-full of over 75 presents that’ll please the

most discerning person on your list. The best

part? Almost everything is available at smallbox

brick and mortars, so you can rest assured

you’re doing your part to support the cornerstones

of our community. Bonus: We’re giving away a

few of the featured gifts; follow us on Instagram

(@stylemags) for the details and how you can walk

away a winner.

Whether you loathe or love this time of

year, remember to take a moment to appreciate

the people, places, and things that abound and

surround. Happy holidays!

Q &A

“My

life was

saved, and

now my

purpose

is to be a

beneficial

presence

in the

world.”

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER

SELF?

Extend the gift of compassion, patience, and

understanding to yourself and others.

WHAT COMES TO YOU NATURALLY?

Service. I feel most alive when I’m in service to

another soul. It gives my life great meaning and

leaves me feeling purposeful.

WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST PET PEEVE?

When someone uses a pronoun (i.e., he or she)

in place of someone’s name when the person

they’re referring to is standing next to them.

BIGGEST LIFE INSPIRATIONS?

My greatest desire in life is to be a beneficial

presence and use storytelling as a means to

heal the wounds inflicted by mental illness and

restore hope to those in need.

FAVORITE HUMANITARIAN CAUSE?

The worldwide effort to normalize the

conversation around all forms of mental illness,

and the global push to reduce the numbers of

deaths by suicide.

David

Woods

Bartley

BEST WORDS OF WISDOM YOU’VE RECEIVED?

My big brother, Major General John R. Bartley

(Ret.), taught me the true meaning of servant

leadership, the impact of remembering a

person’s name, and the healing power of a

good old-fashioned handwritten note.

Although he didn’t know it

at the time, the day David

Woods Bartley found

himself standing on the

edge of the Foresthill Bridge in Auburn—

planning to jump—would prove to only be

the beginning of his journey, not the end.

It had been a long and difficult road to

that fateful day in August 2011. Bartley

had spent his youth dealing with chronic

depression, following a series of childhood

traumas including the early loss of his

father and sexual abuse at the hands of a

trusted community leader. He later found

solace in running an animal sanctuary

for senior and special-needs pets, but the

pressure of caring for over 100 animals

took its toll on his already-tenuous mental

health. “My self-care went out the window,”

he recalls. Fortunately, first responders

were able to bring Bartley down from

the precipice and get him the help he so

desperately needed.

Bartley is now a public speaker and

mental health advocate (davidwoodsbartley.

com)—using stories of his experiences with

animals to help destigmatize mental illness

and reach out to those struggling to go

from “mental hellness to mental wellness.”

He also serves on numerous community

and nonprofit boards, including the Placer

County Mental Health Alcohol and Drug

Advisory Board (MHADAB), the National

Storytelling Network’s Healing Story

Alliance, and Bread of Life, a communitybenefit

educational organization. For Bartley,

it’s all about spreading a message of hope.

“My life was saved, and now my purpose is

to be a beneficial presence in the world,” he

shares. “I want people to know it’s possible to

achieve mental health.”

and giving, and who better to

give to than the children of our

‘Tis

own community? Because of

the generous donations that locals make to

the city’s Recreation for Youth Fund, about 150

children are able to take one of the enriching

classes Placerville’s Recreation and Parks

Division offers every year.

The fund was established in 1995, and 100

percent of every donation is dispersed to the

children who apply. If families with financial

constraints meet the requirements for receiving

assistance, the fund pays for 50 percent of their

child’s class registration once every six months.

The city believes every child deserves the chance

to learn to paint, dance, swim, play basketball, or

learn karate. Help keep this program alive and

make sure no child is turned away. By donating,

you receive the satisfaction of knowing that

your money is going directly to the children of

our community and get your name posted in

the Recreation and Parks Activity Guide that’s

delivered to over 10,000 residents three times

a year.

Resilience Art

Exhibit

The El Dorado Arts Council (EDAC) is

excited to showcase the most recent

project from artist Kim Abeles—noted

for her social, political, and feminist

works and for creating communitybased

projects that explore biography,

geography, and the environment.

During her one-month residency at the

Institute of Forest Genetics, she worked

with students from Independence

High School to create the exhibit,

Resilience. Sited at EDAC’s Confidence

Lab (487 Main Street) in Placerville,

the project is a sight to be seen, as

it examines and reflects the idea of

resilience. The students were excited

to partake in such a complex project

with an influential artist. "The arts, arts

education, and art creation makes for a

better person. It helps to expand one’s

mind and create a more analytical,

creative, and flexible outlook in life,"

explains EDAC Program Manager

Andrew Vonderschmitt. Resilience

is open Thursdays through Sundays

from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; admission is free.

Celebrate New Year’s Eve

The 10 Spot by TARA MENDANHA

It’s time to look back and celebrate all the good this past year

has brought us. Whether it’s through fine food or family fun,

make the last day of the year count with these local happenings.

Goodbye 2018—you’ve been great!

Sutter Street Theatre in Folsom is hosting a New Year’s Eve Show

and Party beginning at 7 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres and a no-host

bar. A delicious Italian dinner will then be served followed by a

performance of The Carsino Show—a spoof on The Tonight Show

Starring Johnny Carson as if enacted by members of the “mafia.”

Later, welcome the new year with champagne or apple cider and

noisemakers. Call 916-353-1001 to make a reservation.

Ring in 2019 at Roseville Topgolf’s Big NYE Bash where you can enjoy

live entertainment, a chef-inspired menu, and an unforgettable

midnight celebration. All their New Year’s Eve packages include

unlimited game play from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. for up to six guests, front

row seats to a midnight fireworks show, and party favors to help

celebrate NYE in style. topgolf.com/us/promo/new-years-eve

Dust off those dancing shoes and head to Randy Peters Catering &

Event Center in Roseville for DJ Supe Live for New Year’s Eve from

7 p.m. to 1 a.m. This will be an elegant night to remember, as DJ

Supe brings in 2019 with a bang. The black-tie affair will feature club

classics as well as today’s hits. Contact 916-768-4753 for reservations.

No plans for NYE? The movies are always a good idea no matter

what time of year. For something a little extra, catch a movie and

dinner at Studio Movie Grill in Rocklin and make an evening of it.

ASK THE Expert

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PRUNE MY TREES AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

December releases include the epic Aquaman, fantastical Mortal

Engines, funny Second Act, and nostalgic Mary Poppins Returns.

The holiday season isn’t over yet! There’s a lot of good cheer to be

found at the Folsom Historic District Ice Rink that’s open through

January 21. When you’re giddy after a romp on the ring, head down

to any of the cozy restaurants in and around Sutter Street for some

tasty fuel to take on 2019. folsomicerink.com

Ride into the night with Sacramento RiverTrain’s New Year’s Eve

Beer and Wine Bash. Departing from West Sacramento (400

North Harbor Boulevard) at 9 p.m. (boarding is at 8:30 p.m.),

celebrations will include a DJ and dancing; hors d’oeuvres;

wine, cider, and beer tasting; and a midnight champagne toast.

Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Lincoln is where Creedence

Want to start next year on the right foot? Placer Food Bank

in Roseville invites individuals and business or corporates to

volunteer their time on December 31 (limited spots available) or

donate dry, packaged goods to their warehouse. Remember—

charity doesn’t end on January 1! Let’s keep the spirit of giving alive

all through 2019. placerfoodbank.org

Pruning—such as deadwood removal or

thinning—is acceptable year-round in

Northern California, but tree species can

also determine timing. Small trees should

be pruned carefully, and newly planted trees

shouldn’t be pruned heavily. Structural

pruning early on in a tree’s life can prevent

other issues that’ll help it grow correctly. Recent research has

proven that aboveground growth encourages root growth. We

recommend consulting with an arborist to determine what

your trees needs are.

Ronnie

Frostad

HLB: WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND

FROSTAD ATELIER?

RF: When I took one of my sculptures

to a small foundry to be cast, my thirst

for bronze began, and I’m not sure the

thirst can be quenched in one lifetime. In

1998, Frostad Atelier Foundry was born

in Rocklin’s Stanford Ranch Business

Park. I began with a crew of one and

breathed, ate, and slept with bronze.

When I outgrew the facility, I moved to

the former Air Force foundry at McClellan

Park, which was 26,000 square feet and

had overhead cranes left from World War

II. This allowed me to grow and construct

monumental size sculptures for artists

A Monumental Success

by HEATHER L. BECKER

Ronnie Frostad grew

up in an artistic

home. Her mother, a

talented multimedia

painter, was the

inspiration and

influence behind

her creative passion. Although fear of

being a starving artist lead her to pursue

a formal education in dentistry, Frostad’s

artistic ardor eventually found her

studying sculpture at Sierra College and

UC Davis. The artist—who also teaches

weekend workshops on basic sculpting

techniques—is now the only woman

in the country to own a bronze casting

foundry: Frostad Atelier. “I’m definitely

a woman in a man’s world, and I was

not well-received in the early days,”

shares Frostad. “I think because mostly

men dominated my position, I took

risks not fully understanding the high

consequences that hung in the shadows.”

Frostad’s newest work is an eight-foot

personal piece that will debut this spring

at her gallery, which is open to the public

every second Saturday.

from all over the U.S. After 10 years at

McClellan, I decided to build a more stateof-the-art

foundry and gallery in North

Natomas.

HLB: HOW DO YOU FEEL BEING ONE OF

FEW WOMEN IN YOUR INDUSTRY?

RF: New clients often expect to hear a

man’s voice when they call for the first

time because of my name. Foundry work

is hot, dangerous, and labor-intensive—

we pour molten bronze at 2,000 degrees

Fahrenheit and have forklifts and cranes

New Patients

Always Welcome!

for extremely heavy lifting. Over the

years, I trained myself through on-the-job

experience to the point where I can consult

artists, both men and women, about bronze

casting their work. I feel I’m now accepted as

an equal in the field.

HLB: WHAT’S YOUR “WHOLE LOTTA LOVE”

PROGRAM?

RF: “Whole Lotta Love” began as a tribute to

my first-born grandson Tyler, 13 years ago.

I wanted to preserve his cute baby hands

and feet forever. My husband is a dentist,

and we took impressions of Tyler’s hand and

foot and formed wax replicas. The replicas

were then cast in bronze and finished,

patined, and mounted on a base producing

a living sculpture. We now offer the service

to other parents/grandparents, in addition

to making sculptures of couples holding

hands, dentists and physicians holding

instruments, and even replicas of dogs’

paws.

HLB: HOW DO YOU SEEK INSPIRATION?

RF: My inspiration is everyday life—it’s not

always something visual. Sometimes a smell

can ignite a memory and inspire an idea. I

think artists are born with a sixth sense that

helps us to see, hear, and feel on a different

level. frostadatelier.com

Work it

Out

(side)

Your Guide to Winter Sports

by KOURTNEY JASON

E

ven if the temperature is low, you don’t

have to move your workout indoors.

Whether you stay in town or drive to the

mountains, our area offers an array of

fun winter activities that double as great

workouts, from skiing and snowboarding to ice-skating and

even curling.

Jason Collin, a physical therapist at the Barton Center for

Orthopedics & Wellness as well as a winter sports enthusiast,

says: “Studies show that spending time outside, in nature,

reduces stress levels, helps balance metabolism, lowers blood

pressure, and creates a better workout.” Collin adds, “For all

activities, remember that cold temperatures can cause your

body to lose heat faster than your body can produce it. As you

head outside, always dress properly, stay hydrated, know your

surroundings, and use common sense.” Grab your skies, ice

skates, or a sled, and have a (snow)ball this season!

1 ICE-SKATING

BENEFITS/CALORIES BURNED: Brian Jackson, owner of the Folsom

Historic District Ice Rink, says you can burn 250-670 calories ice-skating

for 30 minutes, though it depends on how much you weigh and how

fast you’re skating. “Ice-skating is a great way to increase your cardio

while having fun gliding on the ice and listening to music,” he says.

“You’ll improve your balance as well, so don’t be surprised if you feel

it in your thighs, lower back, and stomach muscles.”

TRY IT: Folsom Historic District Ice Rink (200 Wool Street, Folsom, 916-

936-4410, folsomicerink.com); Skatetown Ice Arena (1009 Orlando

Avenue, Roseville, 916-783-8550, skatetown.biz)

BEGINNER TIP: “If you’re a beginner, there are some balance techniques

that can be practiced at home or school, such as standing on one foot

while doing tasks such as preparing dinner or talking to your friends.

Do this for as long as you can before switching feet and as often as you

can before skating. While you might look a little silly, who will have the

last laugh when skating?” Jackson says.

CROSS-COUNTRY

SKIING

BENEFITS/CALORIES BURNED: Alpenglow

Sports staffer Janice Pilkington says crosscountry

skiing (also known as Nordic skiing)

is one of the best aerobic activities you can

do. It’s an endurance sport that’s good for

the heart and lungs, similar to running or

cycling. It can burn 500-1,000 calories per

hour, depending on whether the trail is flat

or uphill.

TRY IT: Tahoe Cross-Country Ski Area (925

Country Club Drive, Tahoe City, 530-583-5475,

tahoexc.org); Royal Gorge Cross-Country Ski

Resort (9411 Pahatsi Road, Soda Springs, 530-

426-3871, royalgorge.com)

BEGINNER TIP: “Even if you’re an avid downhill

skier, don’t expect to be a great cross-country

skier. Soft boots and edgeless skis provide

a challenge for all first-timers. When in

doubt, hire an instructor,” says Sean Kristl,

director of sales and marketing at Alpenglow

Expeditions.

3

DOWNHILL

SKIING

BENEFITS/CALORIES BURNED: Skiing

improves your strength and balance,

Pilkington says. “When you do longer runs

without stopping, you’ll also notice that you’re

a bit out of breath,” she says. “If you choose to

be really adventurous and go backcountry

skiing—where you put climbing skins on

your skis and go uphill outside the resorts

under your own power—you’ll get a great

aerobic workout.” Kristl adds that downhill

skiing builds leg muscles and core strength,

and you can burn 300-500 calories in an hour,

depending on the intensity. “Powder-skiing

will burn more calories; groomed skiing will

burn less,” he says.

TRY IT: Sierra-at-Tahoe (1111 Sierra-at-

Tahoe Road, Twin Bridges, 530-659-7453,

sierraattahoe.com); Sugar Bowl Resort (629

Sugar Bowl Road, Norden, 530-426-9000,

sugarbowl.com); Northstar California (5001

Northstar Drive, Truckee, 530-562-2267,

northstarcalifornia.com); Squaw Valley-

Alpine Meadows (1960 Squaw Valley Road,

Olympic Valley, 800-403-0206, squawalpine.

com); Heavenly Mountain Resort (4080 Lake

Tahoe Boulevard, South Lake Tahoe, 775-586-

7000, skiheavenly.com); Kirkwood Mountain

Resort (1501 Kirkwood Meadows Drive,

Kirkwood, 209-258-6000, kirkwood.com)

BEGINNER TIP: Pilkington recommends,

newcomers take advantage of [a resort's]

packages that [typically] include lift tickets

with rentals and lessons. “The resorts offer

them at discounts because they want you to

come back and know your experience will

be better if you take a lesson and have good

equipment.”

4

SNOWSHOEING

BENEFITS/CALORIES BURNED: “Similar to

hiking or running, snowshoeing is

a fantastic cardiovascular

workout. Deeper snow

makes it more difficult

and a harder workout,

while sturdy snow

underfoot makes it

drastically easier,”

Kristl says. Depending

on pace and snow type,

a snowshoer can burn

between 500-1,000 calories per hour.

TRY IT: California Sno-Parks, including Donner

Summit (near Truckee off I-80), Blackwood

Canyon (near Tahoe City off Highway 89),

Carson Pass (off Highway 88), Echo Lake (off

Highway 50), Iron Mountain (off Highway

88 near Kirkwood ski area), Lake Alpine (off

Highway 4), Meiss Meadow (off Highway

88 near Carson Pass), Spicer Reservoir (off

Highway 4), Taylor Creek (off Highway 89 near

Fallen Leaf Lake), and Yuba Pass (off Highway

49)

BEGINNER TIP: “Hiking boots with a pair of

warm wool socks work well for footwear.

Snowshoes come in a variety of sizes and

materials. The bigger you are, the bigger

the surface area you need to keep you from

sinking. Also, deeper/softer snow requires a

bigger snowshoe,” Pilkington says. “Going out

in deep, untracked snow is very physically

demanding. Most people try to find a trail

that’s been groomed at a Nordic skiing center

or a packed snowmobile trail.”

5 SNOWBOARDING

BENEFITS/CALORIES BURNED: Nadia

Guerriero, vice president and general

manager at Northstar California, says

snowboarding, like skiing, is a full-body

activity, which means doing it requires

feeling the position of different body

parts and having an awareness of the

effort that goes into moving those parts.

It can burn between 300-600 calories an

hour, depending on how hard you work.

TRY IT: Sierra-at-Tahoe (1111 Sierra-At-

Tahoe Road, Twin Bridges, 530-659-7453,

sierraattahoe.com); Sugar Bowl Resort (629

Sugar Bowl Road, Norden, 530-426-9000,

sugarbowl.com); Northstar California (5001

Northstar Drive, Truckee, 530-562-2267,

northstarcalifornia.com); Squaw Valley-

DECEMBER 2018 // styleedc.com 19


health & wellness

Alpine Meadows (1960 Squaw Valley Road,

Olympic Valley, 800-403-0206, squawalpine.

com); Heavenly Mountain Resort (4080 Lake

Tahoe Boulevard, South Lake Tahoe, 775-586-

7000, skiheavenly.com); Kirkwood Mountain

Resort (1501 Kirkwood Meadows Drive,

Kirkwood, 209-258-6000, kirkwood.com)

BEGINNER TIP: Have a professional coach you,

Guerriero says. “Join a small group or private

lesson from a certified instructor to learn

the basics. Not only will this save you time,

frustration, and a strained relationship, but

you’ll also feel accomplished and confident

on the mountain.” She also says to drink

water, as many first-timers aren’t acclimated

to performing physical activity at a higher

elevation. “Water is the key to helping your

body get used to the altitude and have a great

day on the mountain.”

6 SLEDDING

BENEFITS/CALORIES BURNED: “Sledding

is fun,” Collin says. “It doesn’t require fancy

or expensive equipment, making it more

accessible and affordable. Plus, the walk up

that hill each time is good for your legs and

your heart.” Sledding for 30 minutes on a

medium-sized hill burns about 240 calories.

TRY IT: California Sno-Parks, including Donner

Summit (near Truckee off I-80), Blackwood

Canyon (near Tahoe City off Highway 89),

Carson Pass (off Highway 88), Echo Lake (off

Highway 50), Iron Mountain (off Highway

88 near Kirkwood ski area), Lake Alpine (off

Highway 4), Meiss Meadow (off Highway

88 near Carson Pass), Spicer Reservoir (off

Highway 4), Taylor Creek (off Highway 89 near

Fallen Leaf Lake), and Yuba Pass (off Highway

49)

BEGINNER TIP: “Sledding has risks that aren’t

always obvious,” he warns. “It’s important to

check out the environment before sledding,

because sleds pick up speed quickly and don’t

steer well. Look for any obstacles, such as

trees, rocks, and people. If possible, sled at a

resort where an appropriate sledding slope

has been identified.”

7

ICE

HOCKEY

BENEFITS/CALORIES BURNED: Susan

Sweetser, a spokesperson at Skatetown

Ice Arena, says ice hockey develops

endurance and the cardiovascular system,

boosts metabolism, is a full-body workout,

enhances muscular strength, develops

hand-eye coordination, improves body

coordination and balance, develops

social skills and the spirit of team work,

improves communication, and boosts

brain and mental acuity. Calories burned

can depend on how much you weigh, how

fast you move, and how hard you play. For

example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you

can burn approximately 285 calories in

30 minutes.

TRY IT: Folsom Historic District Ice Rink

(200 Wool Street, Folsom, 916-936-4410,

folsomicerink.com); Skatetown Ice Arena

(1009 Orlando Avenue, Roseville, 916-783-

8550, skatetown.biz)

BEGINNER TIP: Ryan Frisch, a local hockey

player, shares three tips to those interested

in picking up the sport. “Make sure to

invest in a good-fitting pair of skates—they

don’t need to be top-of-the-line, but go to

a pro shop and have them fit you properly.

Second, join a ‘learn-to-play’ hockey class

at a local rink—this is a low-pressure way

to learn the game with others in the same

situation. And third, play as much as you

can. There are drop-in pickup sessions and

skill sessions offered where you can finetune

your skating and your skills.”

8 Curling

BENEFITS/CALORIES BURNED: Sweetser

says curling is an aerobic workout,

increasing your heart rate and improving

the cardiovascular system. “You can

put on about two miles walking up and

down the ice during a game,” she says.

“Plus, the sweeping motion involved in

directing the rock increases heart rate and

improves your cardiovascular system.” It

also strengthens your muscles, improves

flexibility, and can be done by anyone.

Curling burns a lot of calories—356 calories

an hour for an average man and 304 for a

woman—yet because you’re playing on

ice, you don’t perspire as much, she says.

BEGINNER TIP: “Start at a learn-to-curl clinic

(the Wine Country Curling Club hosts

them year-round) where you’ll get an

overview of the game, etiquette and on-ice

safety, learn delivery basics and sweeping,

and play a short game (if time and space

permit),” she says.

Water

Works

H.G. was from New England where water wheels

were used to operate factories and mills. He envisioned

creating a water-powered industrial center in Folsom

and made plans to build a sawmill, which required the

construction of a dam and canal.

He negotiated the first labor contract between a

water company and the state of California in 1868. In

exchange for 350 acres of property the state needed to

build a prison, he received 30,000 hours of convict labor

to build the dam. The first Folsom Dam was completed

in 1891.

H.G. never saw the completion of the dam or sawmill, however. He passed

away in 1879, and his sons took over the business. The sawmill didn’t prosper,

but the younger Livermores realized that instead of using water to power

manufacturing, it could be used to power generators to create electricity.

H.P., his brother Charles, and Albert Gallatin of Huntington-Hopkins Hardware

created the Sacramento Electric Power and Light Company in 1892. They explored

the market for electric streetcars, streetlights, and factories and the logistics of

building a powerhouse in Folsom to supply those markets.

Folsom Powerhouse

State Historic Park

by JERRIE BEARD

Horatio G. (H.G.) Livermore arrived in California in 1850

banking on gold to make his fortune. What he learned instead

was how to turn water to gold.

In the early 1860s, H.G. and his sons, Horatio Putnam

(H.P.) and Charles Edward, gained a controlling interest

in the Natoma Water and Mining Company, which was

organized in 1853 to divert water from the American River

to mining camps. The Livermores had a grander vision for

the water, however.

In 1884, Thompson-Houston and Capital Gas companies began supplying

limited electricity to Sacramento using small coal-burning steam engines. Most

electricity being generated at the time was direct current, costly,

powerhouse and help fund construction bonds.

Work on the Folsom Powerhouse began.

Elihu Thompson reworked four Edison directcurrent

generators into alternating current

generators. Transmission lines were run

to a substation at Sixth and H Streets in

Sacramento where the electricity would be

converted to direct current and delivered

to streetcars, which Livermore operated

through a franchise.

On July 11, 1895, at 5 p.m., crowds waited

at the substation in Sacramento for the

first transmission of power from Folsom.

When the switch was thrown, nothing

happened. Crossed wires were soon detected

and repaired, but the second attempt at 2

a.m. produced a similar result. A governor

controlling the speed of the powerhouse

generator had broken. A replacement part

was obtained from the Southern Pacific

Railroad and at 4 a.m. on July 13, 1895, a

100-gun salute by the military detachment

from Battery B shattered the morning hours

announcing the arrival of the first electrical

transmission from the Folsom Powerhouse.

According to the July 15, 1895, issue

of the Sacramento Daily Union, the Folsom

Powerhouse was the largest long-distance

transmission plant in the world, while the

Folsom Dam was the largest in the U.S. In

the same article, F.O. Blackwell, an engineer

from General Electric, prognosticated that

this cheap source of power would allow “this

State to supply her own needs very largely, if

not wholly in manufactured products.”

The Folsom Powerhouse operated until

1952 when the original Folsom Dam was

destroyed during construction of the new

dam. The powerhouse was donated to the

State of California in 1958 and is open to the

public Wednesday-Sunday from noon to 4

p.m.

DID YOU KNOW

Reversing Type 2 Diabetes

More than 50% of

Americans have

been diagnosed

with diabetes

or pre-diabetes.

While many

believe that type 2

diabetes is a chronic and progressive disease

that patients will need to learn to live with

and manage for the rest of their lives, it is, in

fact, reversible. “Medications like insulin and

metformin will help manage the symptoms

of diabetes, but lifestyle and diet changes

can actually reverse the disease,” says Connie

Burgeson, MD, Medical Director of Marshall

Diabetes and Nutrition Education.

The steps to reversal are simple, though they

require discipline and willpower. Here are a

few things you can do:

Eliminate added sugar from your diet.

Instead, use a natural sweetener like stevia in

your morning coffee or tea.

• Avoid refined carbohydrates, including rice,

pasta and bread. Try a lower carb alternative

like brown rice and zucchini noodles.

• Be sure to include good quality, healthy fats

in your daily routine. Snack on almonds or

olives and add avocado to your salad.

• Exercise. It’s recommended to get 30 minutes

of exercise at least five days a week. This can

be as simple as parking as far as possible from

your office, taking the stairs instead of the

Marshall Medical Center now offers professional continuous glucose monitoring (Pro CGM) for

patients with diabetes. Pro CGM provides continuous insight into glucose levels and patterns

throughout the day and night for gaining better control.

The Pro CGM system is a small sensor placed on the back of your upper arm by your doctor. It

records up to 14 days of continuous glucose data. Your doctor can then download the data to look

at trends and patterns and then adjust your treatment plan to

optimize the management of your diabetes.

The Pro CGM sensor doesn’t replace regular self-testing of

your blood glucose, so be sure to continue your usual routine

and maintain a log of your readings, diet, exercise, and insulin

injections.

elevator, or doing squats while you wait for

your dinner to cook.

• Take a probiotic. Studies suggest a link

between the state of the bacteria in your gut

with type 2 diabetes.

• Eat your veggies. Try to get five servings of

different color vegetables each day.

A key to success in this process is to start small.

Choose one of the above recommendations

and slowly add more. Changing all of your

habits at once can be difficult to maintain in

the long term.

It’s important to listen to your body as well.

There is not one magic solution that will

work for everyone, so make sure you find the

right combination of lifestyle changes that

are right for you.

BETTER CARE FOR YOU

Many people

don’t realize they

have hearing loss

until it becomes a

problem

Say What?

High Tech Hearing Devices

These are not your

grandfather’s hearing

aids. Today’s hearing

device technology is now

more powerful than ever.

Marshall ENT & Hearing Center shares

the following features and accessories that

provide a more efficient and hassle-free

experience.

Rechargeability

Several new models of hearing devices

allow the convenience of rechargeable

technology, meaning you never have

to change a battery again. And the best

news? You don’t have to purchase a brandnew

device. All you need to do is bring

your device to Marshall’s Hearing Center

for a simple switch of the battery door.

This easy and convenient rechargeable

technology provides a full day’s use with

one overnight charge and allows you to

hear without hassle. And if you happen

to forget to charge your device one night,

you can easily switch your rechargeable

batteries out for disposables.

TV Streamers

TV streamers are a popular product

for those with hearing loss and their

families; they are used so everyone

can have an enjoyable TV watching

experience. These devices stream

sound (some from as far as 23 feet

away) straight to your hearing aids

while your family and friends listen at

a comfortable volume.

Remote Microphones

Remote microphones help those with

hearing loss hear their conversation

partner in noisy backgrounds and

from a distance. This device provides

up to 62 percent more understanding

in noise compared to those without

hearing loss. The microphone settings

automatically adjust to the noise levels

around you as well as the speaker.

Landline Bluetooth Phone

There are even cordless phones that

automatically stream calls to your

hearing aids, resulting in improved

speech understanding. These devices

feature a direct dial button, handsfree

mode and compatibility for those

without hearing loss.

To schedule an appointment with

a Marshall audiologist at either

the Placerville or Cameron Park

locations, call 530-344-2010 or visit

marshallhearing.org.

Hearing loss is the third most prevalent

medical condition in the United States,

falling just behind heart disease and

arthritis. The good news is that most

people can improve their hearing through

treatment. In fact, except in cases where

there is total hearing loss, almost everyone

will have treatment options available.

You can trust the Marshall Hearing Center

to provide the highest level of quality,

professional service provided by certified

audiologists. The team offers patients an

approach that combines cutting-edge

science with a personal touch.

“Many people don’t realize they have

hearing loss until it becomes a problem,”

says Mark Payne, Au.D., CCC-A, Marshall

Hearing Center.

Services include a complete hearing profile

and assessment as well as a medical

referral for hearing technology services

if necessary. While hearing loss cannot

be reversed, hearing aids and cochlear

implants have allowed thousands to

overcome their hearing issues.

Audiology services include:

• Diagnostic audiological evaluations for

adults and children

• Counseling and second opinion

evaluations

• Dispensing of digital, programmable and

conventional hearing devices

• Service, repair, and readjustments for

most brands of hearing devices

• Dispensing of Assistive Listening Devices

• Aural Rehabilitation

• Custom Ear Plugs & Swim Molds

• VNG Testing for vertigo.

COVER STORY

When the Pain

Won’t Go Away

SPECIAL AD SECTION

Gloria Evraiff knows pain. Born with

pelvic deformities, she’s undergone

20 major surgeries and suffers

from chronic low back and pelvic

pain. But that’s not all. She also

suffers from kidney stones, bowel

obstructions and bone pain from

recently diagnosed bone cancer. All of her life, the pain has

been constant.

“Whenever I was hospitalized, they couldn’t manage my

pain. The doctors looked at my history and would glaze

over. When they saw I was already taking up to 300 mg of

oxycodone they knew it would be dangerous to give me

any more.” Oxycodone is a prescription drug used for the

management of pain. It and others like it have a risk for

abuse and addiction, which can lead to overdose and death.

Every day in the U.S., more than 90 Americans die after

overdosing on opioids—deeming the issue a national public

health emergency.

Chronic pain – one that persists over months or years – is

an epidemic in this country. It is also difficult to address as

people use different words to describe their pain. No one

can truly know another’s pain because it’s subjective. “I

was frustrated,” said Gloria,” I was taking too many opiates

and no one was giving me a solution. I was in terrible shape

from excessive opiate use. I needed a plan but no pain

management doctors would see me.”

“I needed a new primary care doctor and that’s how I found

Dr. Jay at Marshall Medical Center. Going over my history,

she was hesitant to treat my pain at first, saying she doesn’t

deal with my level of pain prescriptions. She told me she was

4 | FOR YOUR HEALTH | www.marshallmedical.org


worried about me. She asked if I was

open to trying a different type of pain

management program. I believed she

understood that I truly was in pain. I

was confident we could work together

and I wanted to try her plan.”

Those dependent on opioids for pain

management have

options including

treatment at

Marshall’s new

Clinically Assisted

Recovery and

Education Services

(CARES) clinic in

Placerville. Headed

by Loni Jay, MD,

the clinic provides

treatment with

medications that

not only address

pain but helps

lessen dependency

and withdrawal

symptoms. As part

of the program,

patients also receive

counseling and a support system.

Marshall CARES accepts El Dorado

County Medi-Cal and California

Health and Wellness and most PPO

insurance. For the uninsured or

under-insured, grants are available to

assist with cost, including gas cards to

help with transportation.

Recovery from opioid addiction is a

long and challenging process and it’s

essential that patients commit fully

to their recovery. Not only must they

overcome withdrawal, but also address

co-occurring conditions such as

depression, anger and anxiety, as well

as change their behavior and lifestyle

to avoid relapse. While some people

find themselves buying pills or heroin

off the street to get “high” and are stuck

in this cycle of addiction, other people

have come to long-term opioid use

from their experience of chronic pain.

While its known physical dependence

is not the same as addiction, some of

the same medications can still improve

the quality of these patients’ lives.

“After working with Dr. Jay for two

years, I have gotten down to 10-20%

of my previous prescription level. We

got the total dosage down so that more

painful flare ups can now be treated

when I go into the hospital, which

is important because of my ongoing

conditions,” says Gloria.

Adds Dr. Jay, “A

big issue we need

to overcome is the

stigma of the disease

of addiction as well

as the stigma of

chronic pain. The

cases we see of opioid

addiction often start

as a prescription

for acute or chronic

pain that grows into

a larger prescription,

then purchasing

pills off the street,

and before you

know it, the patient

is buying heroin

because it’s cheaper.

As physicians, we have to be careful

with our prescribing and be aware

addiction is a medical disease

process that deserves evidence-based

treatment. For our patients with

chronic pain, buprenorphine can

often help them manage pain with

much lower risk of overdose or the

development of tolerance.

Gloria agrees. “Buprenorphine more

effectively manages my chronic and

acute pain. It really reduces my cycle

of pain and withdrawal. That’s how

I got down to the lower dosage. On

the program, I can get medication for

pain and I’m not high all day. I can

function. I still have good days and

bad days, but I can drive, I can help

my husband with our business, I can

take my dogs for a walk and I can do

housework.”

“With chronic pain, it is so important

to find a doctor that recognizes the

implications and complications. I have

literally seen hundreds of doctors and

I’m really grateful I found Dr. Jay.”

Help for Addiction

If you are currently addicted to an opioid

like Norco, OxyContin or heroin and

want to break the cycle of use, you may

be a candidate for medication assisted

treatment at Marshall CARES. Utilizing

safe alternative medicine that relieves

the cravings and withdrawal symptoms,

a personal plan is created for your

recovery.

You can get help two ways:

1

In the event of an emergency such

as agonizing withdrawal, come to

the Marshall Hospital Emergency

Department. Opioid addiction treatment

is given at Marshall 24/7, through the ED

Bridge Program. A single visit can

provide 24 to 48 hours of withdrawal and

cravings suppression. You’ll be referred

to Marshall CARES (Clinically Assisted

Recovery & Education Services) for

follow up treatment.

2

Call Marshall CARES to make an

appointment. You may be referred

by your primary care provider or

self-refer for treatment. Marshall CARES

accepts El Dorado County Medi-Cal and

California Health and Wellness and most

PPO insurance. For those with no

insurance, grants are available to assist

with costs for opioid treatment.

DID YOU KNOW

Shingles:

What You Need to Know

You’ve probably seen the commercials on TV. If you had the chicken pox

as a child, you have the shingles virus in your nerve cells. This fact can

be unnerving. Shingles is a painful skin rash, typically localized in one

wide stripe on one side of the body, with tingling or pain where the

rash is.

In most cases, the rash will heal within two-to-four weeks. However,

for some, ongoing nerve pain can last months or even years.

Now, there’s a new vaccine called Shingrix® that can fend off this unpleasant

condition. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend

this vaccine for healthy adults over the age of 50. It’s a two dose vaccine, and will prevent

shingles and its complications. Even if you’ve had shingles in the past or received a different

shingles vaccine, you can still receive Shingrix to prevent recurrence.

Contact your primary care physician to learn more about the vaccine today.

Balancing Screen Time

with Play Time

Once such concern is screen addiction. Some children can

become addicted to those tablets and end up playing games,

educational or otherwise, instead of doing homework,

sleeping, or interacting with friends and family. Another

concern is blue light. This spectrum of light emitted by

tablets, smart phones, and even televisions, can have a

detrimental effect on sleep patterns and eye sight.

SPECIAL AD SECTION

Screen time these days looks quite different than it did

when we were growing up, different even than it did ten

years ago. It used to mean plopping your kid in front of

Sesame Street or Teletubbies while we quickly scramble to do the

breakfast dishes or throw a load of laundry in the washer.

No longer is “screen time” a passive activity. With the invention

of tablets and thousands of apps, kids of all ages can play

interactive games that help them build skills like reading,

math and more. But there are still some concerns about too

much screen time with kids.

So while screen time isn’t as “bad” as it used to be, it’s still

important to create boundaries for your kids. Limit the

number of hours each day they’re using tablets and limit any

screen time for the hour before bedtime.

And don’t forget about play time. “Physical activity reduces

children’s risk of obesity and diabetes along with improving

muscle and bone strength. That’s true for adults too!” says

Bethany Krieger of Marshall Whole Child Health in El

Dorado Hills. Organized sports can be a great way for kids

to get that physical activity, as well as provide important

interaction with other children. Learning team work and

social skills are other important benefits of sports and play

time for kids.

Breast Cancer:

The Importance

of Early Detection

About

Marshall

Medical

Center’s

Cancer

Program

A life-altering illness deserves

comprehensive care. Accredited

by both the American College

of Surgeons (ACOS) and the

Commission on Cancer (CoC),

Marshall Hematology/Oncology

offers a broad range of cancerfighting

services – expert

physicians, an infusion center, and

a certified oncology pharmacy – all

under one roof.

A

ccording to the

American Cancer

Society, breast

cancer is the most

common cancer

among American

women, with

the exception of skin cancers. The

average risk of a woman in the United

States developing breast cancer is

approximately 12%, meaning there is

a 1 in 8 chance that any given woman

will develop it. It’s also important to

note that breast cancer is not specific to

women. Instances of breast cancer in

men are on the rise as well.

Two of the most important strategies for

a good outcome from breast cancer are

early detection and seeking the most

advanced treatments available. When

breast cancer is found early, it’s usually

small and has yet to spread to other

parts of the body, thereby making it

more easily treatable.

It is crucial for women to know how

their breasts normally look and feel so

they can easily detect changes which

could be indications of breast cancer.

The most common symptom is a new

lump or mass. Other symptoms include:

• swelling of all or part of the breast

• skin irritation, puckering or dimpling

• breast or nipple pain

• nipple retraction or change in position of

the nipple

• redness, scaliness, or thickening of the

nipple or breast skin

• nipple discharge

• swelling or lumps in the lymph nodes

under the arm or around the collar bone

• any change in the size, shape or feel of

your breast

If you notice any of these symptoms, call

your doctor to schedule an appointment.

Your doctor will do an exam of your breast

and ask you about other symptoms you

may be experiencing, or suggest you get a

mammogram for further exploration.

Those who are under-insured can receive

free mammogram assistance at Marshall

Medical Center through the Cancer

Resource Center in Cameron Park. Call

530-672-7050 for more information.

Since 2005, Marshall Medical

Center’s Cancer Program has been

accredited with commendation by

the American College of Surgeons,

Commission on Cancer (CoC).

This means our program has

been rigorously evaluated and

ensures that we meet or exceed the

standards established by the CoC.

Marshall’s Cancer Program is allinclusive,

meaning that all medical

and support services needed for

effective treatment of all cancers we

treat is available close by.

hours a day and provide referrals

to specialists nationwide. The

staff includes two board certified

hematology/oncology physicians,

in addition to two oncology certified

Surprise. This was my first impression

as I walked through the doors

of El Dorado Hills’ newest Asian

restaurant. White leather chairs,

colored LED lights illuminating Chinesethemed

art, and a modern mix of light and dark

wood joined the sounds of four chefs working

at a feverish pace in the open kitchen. The

result? An über-contemporary, cool, and lively

take on family-style Chinese dining.

My wife and I started with a fun twist on

one of her favorites: honey walnut prawns. In

this case, the crowd-pleasing plate was served

as a Singapore-style salad. Although I adore

the entrée, it can be heavy and doesn’t reheat

well as leftovers; conversely, the salad was

light and boasted all the favorable textures

and flavors found in the original with plenty

of fresh veggies (lettuce, carrots, cucumber,

and red cabbage) to cut through the protein’s

deep-fried richness and creamy, sweet sauce.

The shrimp dumpling appetizer—served

in a bamboo steamer basket with eight silky,

plump, shrimp-stuffed bundles of delicate

delights—was an instant hit. Mix a little chili

paste and soy sauce tableside, and everyone

will be fighting for the last one.

Next, we moved to the spicy side with

an order of Sichuan shrimp—a sizzling

portion of prawns alongside colorful bell

peppers, bamboo shoots, onions, shiitake

mushrooms, zucchini, and (a curious but

welcome South of the Border addition) chayote

in a fiery-sweet Sichuan sauce. A quick note

here about Szechuan and Sichuan; in short,

they’re interchangeable and both refer to the

Sichuan province in China—famous for the

wonderfully piquant Sichuan peppercorn and

a cooking style featuring intense flavoring of

garlic and chili peppers. If you’re brave, ask

for it SPICY!

Once again acquiescing to my wife’s tastes,

we ordered lemon chicken, her “safety dish.”

She’s not a very adventurous diner, so the fried

chicken breast in a luscious lemony glaze hit

the mark for her timid taste buds who weren’t

willing to venture in or near the red (hot) zone.

Thankfully, all of their spicy dishes are

defined by a red chili pepper on the menu,

ensuring it’s easy to avoid or invite the heat.

What’s more, each lunch special is served with

soup and your choice of white rice, fried rice,

chow mein, or brown rice—meaning there’s

plenty of food and flavors to go ’round.

Stop in for lunch or dinner and see what

surprises await—you’ll be glad you did.

• 1 whole egg

• 2 yolks

• 6 oz. bittersweet chocolate (66-

74% cacao)

• 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened

• 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

• 2 1/2 cups whole milk

• 1/2 cup heavy cream

• 1/3 cup brown sugar

• 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

• 2 tbsp. cornstarch

• 1/3 tsp. ground cinnamon

• 1 pinch cayenne pepper

• 1/4 tsp. kosher salt

In a small heatproof bowl, whisk

together the egg and yolks, set

aside. Place chocolate, butter,

and vanilla in a food processor

(don’t turn on). In a medium pot

over low heat, whisk together

milk, cream, brown sugar, cocoa,

and cornstarch and cook until

it begins to boil. At that point,

it will start to thicken; when it

does, immediately pull off the

heat.

Pour a little of the hot cornstarch mixture into the

eggs, stirring constantly, then whisk the eggs back

into the pan with the remaining cornstarch mixture.

Cook over low heat, whisking constantly, until

mixture just returns to a bare simmer.

Immediately pour into the food processor and

blend until very smooth. Pour into individual bowls,

teacups, or 1 large decorative bowl. Cover with plastic

wrap and refrigerate until firm and cold. Garnish with

whipped cream, shaved chocolate, and cinnamon.

THE HOT LIST

Slice of Heaven

6 Best Pies compiled by STYLE STAFFERS // photos by DANTE FONTANA

Raise your hand if you agree that everything tastes better in a buttery, flaky crust. Whether your palate

prefers sweet or savory pies, we have a local slice you’ll want to savor. In no particular order…

Sweetie Pie’s

Fat’s Asia Bistro

Ikeda’s California Country Market

Hog Wild Bar-B-Que

Karen’s Bakery

La Provence Restaurant & Terrace

“There isn’t much that

hasn’t been said about the

olallieberry pies at Sweetie

Pie’s in Placerville, but I’m

still going to say my piece. No

matter how many other pies

I try, I keep going back to

the Peach-Olallieberry

Pie that’s a notch above

the regular olallieberry.

Deep purple berries and

golden yellow peaches come

together in this sweet-butnot-sickeningly-so

pie that’s

a true treasure. Try not to

judge when I lick the plate

clean.” sweetiepies.biz

“I’d heard of Fat’s Asia

Bistro’s legendary Banana

Cream Pie and didn’t

believe the hype till I tried

it myself. The crust is very

different from others I’ve

had—glossier and slightly

sweeter—and the filling itself

is freshness personified. The

heaped whipped cream is

homemade (not that artificial

store-bought stuff), and

the custard between the

just-ripe-enough bananas

is luxurious and creamy.

This is the real deal, folks.”

fatsasiabistro.com

“I consider myself a local pie

expert and for me, nothing

beats the Chicken Pot Pie

at Ikeda’s California Country

Market in Auburn. When

I’m not scarfing down their

perfectly balanced strawberryrhubarb,

I’m reveling in their

savory pot pie that’s packed

with the usual suspects:

chicken, carrots, potatoes,

peas, and celery, all cradled

in their legendary buttery pie

crust. They’re known for their

pies, so you can’t really go

wrong with any of the umpteen

options they offer.” ikedas.

com

“If there’s ever a perfect way

to end a BBQ meal, it’s with

the Chocolate Fudge

Pecan Pie from Hog Wild

Bar-B-Que in Placerville. Not

overwhelmingly chocolate-y

or pecan-y, it provides a sweet

respite from all that delicious

meat. I’d never tasted chocolate

and pecans together in a pie

before but it’s now my favorite

filling. Thick fudge, spicy pecans,

and a side of whipped cream

make for a sensual dessert

that I can’t get enough of.”

hogwildbar-b-que.com

“Just when you thought

Pumpkin Pie couldn’t get

any better, Karen’s Bakery

in Folsom ups the ante with

a gingersnap crust. They also

make it with a plain crust,

but gingersnap is next-level

goodness. The spiciness of the

crust doesn’t overpower the

earthy pumpkin filling and still

manages to stand out from

a plain Jane pie crust. Come

Christmastime, it’s the only pie

I get—family and friends have

even come to expect it each

year!” karensbakery.

com

“The Quiche of the Day from

La Provence Restaurant &

Terrace in Roseville is a brunch

must-have for those with a savory

tooth. It’s typically filled with

seasonal ingredients or whatever

the chef fancies, but no matter

the combination, it’s always

delicate, well-balanced, and filling. I

personally like the leek offering for

its simplicity, but I’ve also tried the

spinach and feta variety, which was

absolutely delicious; and the familiar

yet flavorful quiche Lorraine.”

Julep

Submitted by Gold River Distillery,

11460 Sunrise Gold Circle, Suite

C, Rancho Cordova, 916-476-3868,

goldriverdistillery.com

This crowd-pleasing cocktail is a take on the

classic mint julep, except it uses absinthe rather

than bourbon. As you start sipping, the light

sweetness of sugar and anise are the cocktail’s

dominant yet delightful first impressions. After

the anise passes, savor hints of blackberry and

soothing mint.

• 1.5 oz. Wheel House Absinthe Verte

• .5 oz. blackberry liquor

• 1 sugar cube

• 1-2 springs of fresh mint

• 2 oz. ice water

Muddle mint sprigs and sugar in

a cocktail shaker. Add ice, absinthe,

blackberry liquor, and water. Shake well and

pour into a chilled martini glass or over ice in

a tumbler.
