Here’s To The Old Days
From The Publisher
It feels like the old days around here. I found out today that
Molly’s doing one of her great music interviews. Today I get
to sit and enjoy nothing but the sounds of birds chirping and
water trickling down the creek. I find it all very inspiring
even though that little creek used to act more like a raging
river this time of year.
Today I also get to finish writing every article of mine and I am cherishing the
peace and quiet of it all. As I go through story notes, I am reminded again of all
the wonderful people I got to meet in the making of this edition and the nice
places I got to visit and learn more about.
I greatly encourage you to take the drive we took, deep into history as you pass
through Taylorsville and into Genesee Valley. Enjoy an amazing-tasting, locallysourced
meal prepared by the talented staff at the Genessee Store, once the
trading post and stagecoach stop for those arriving during the California Gold
Rush. (See page 36)
I am so thrilled to let people know they can rent an electric moto, an RC Car
from the fastest name in Radio Control, or even a OneWheel right in Quincy.
There is some fun to be had there; that’s for sure.
And what about that movie-making going on right up here on the mountain.
With several scenes centered in Indian Valley, the production took place back
in November of 1988.. I got to meet many who remember it well. Check out for
yourself what is was like up here when Clint Eastwood and Bernadette Peters
were romping around. I hear Ms. Peters had a great time at Crescent Country in
Crescent Mills. Who wouldn’t?
Also, our company has two new marketing people on staff to help businesses
sort through knowing what they need online and how to get there, effectively,
and on any budget. I really think you are going to like them. Jim Hodge is based
in Susanville but can deliver results for customers across the entire region. The
other new marketing person is Devonte Smith, eager and ready to provide great
service locally as well.
The sound of the the birds has faded but every now and then a hummingbird
graces my presence on the porch with wings aflutter. I relax and remember how
much I enjoy both the quiet days when I get to write, and the fun and energetic
days when I get to get out and meet people while gathering story ideas and getting
to know the businesses who let me do this.
I am so thrilled to have a full staff back just like in the old days. so I can enjoy
every aspect of the makings of the magazine, and the people and places who make
it work. It does feel a bit like the old days again. Hope to see you soon.
