Carol Garcia

Sep 30, 2008 05:00PM ● By Super Admin

Carol Garcia thinks we can cure breast cancer by 2015, and she’s putting her money where her mouth is. As chair of the South Placer Breast Cancer Organization, she has helped to raise over $500,000 for breast cancer research, and has vowed to up the ante to 1.5 million by 2010. The group works in conjunction with the UC Davis Cancer Center in Sacramento to bring in top-tier researchers to continue to hunt down both the causes and the cure for the disease. In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Carol is helping to organize a five-kilometer fun run in historic old town Roseville on October 11, in addition to other events throughout the month (visit wethinkpink.org for more details). As a breast cancer survivor, Carol is well aware of the importance of individual awareness of the disease. She urges women not to rely on their health care providers to act in their best interest. According to the National Cancer Institute, women in their 40s and above should have a mammogram every one to two years, and all women should do regular breast self-exams. “When doctors say, ‘it’s okay, it’s normal, it’s fibrosis,’ don’t always listen,” Carol adds. “Manage your own health care.” For more information on breast cancer prevention, visit cancer.gov or breastcancer.org.

Bistro 33

Sep 30, 2008 05:00PM ● By Super Admin

Seven seems to be Chef Fred Haines’ lucky number. He is a seventh generation Sacramentan, he ranked seventh in a national ski competition in the 44-49 age group and he and his brother opened their seventh restaurant this year, called Tre, located on Howe Avenue in Sacramento. Tre features a chef’s table in the kitchen with community seating that can be bought by the hour as a group or individually. “The chef is constantly making things and breaking it into smaller portions. It can be really fun.”Chef Haines’ foundation of culinary knowledge began in the early days with many hours in the kitchen with his mother, and then he spent much time learning with the big chefs of the world including Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud and Catherine Brandel. Haines was also fortunate enough to work for Restaurants Unlimited in Hawaii, where he picked up even more skills.Above all, Chef Haines’ favorite canvas is salmon. “The theme of Bistro 33 is northwest-inspired, a lot of hardwood roasting of salmon, with things like blueberries and hazelnuts.” The bistro strives to provide a scenic setting with a comfortable atmosphere and a sensible price. “We cook with the idea of flavor first and work on being reasonable so people can have a great night out, even in today’s economy.”For more about Chef Fred Haines including his recipe for Ginger Cream Sauce, be sure to pick up this month's copy of Style-Folsom El Dorado Hills edition.

Five Reasons Couples Seek Counseling

Sep 30, 2008 05:00PM ● By Super Admin

1. “The same conflicts keep coming up.”Few of us are “naturals” at dealing with conflict. Too often couples focus on the details of the conflict and go round and round, digging a deeper and deeper rut that erodes their goodwill and leaves the problem unsolved. A therapist has the job of helping you see beyond the details. They’ll have you pay attention to the way in which you both talk about the conflict. You’re going to have countless disagreements over the life of a relationship. If your style of handling them is lacking, you don’t have a chance. You can afford to have some unsolved issues. But, you can’t afford to destroy your connection a little each time you try to talk them over.2. “I don’t know if we should stay together.”At the start of therapy, many couples have no idea whether they really want to continue the relationship. Some couples are afraid to say this out loud, but are thinking it. Other times, one partner desperately wants to work on things, and the other person is so burned out or angry that they can’t honestly make that commitment at the start. In my opinion that’s fine. It’s honest and doesn’t mean you can’t do the work. Making a commitment to show up, speak up (with respect) and listen up is enough to start.  For the other reasons Dr. Deb says couples seek therapy, be sure to pick up this month's copy of Style-Roseville Granite Bay Rocklin edition.

Scott Becker

Scott Becker remembers when skateboarding wasn’t as simple as going to the local skate park. A veteran of the NorCal skating scene, Scott has watched skateboarding change from an underground group of “pool riders” to a legitimate sport backed by the X-Games. “Kids today don’t realize how hard it was. As a teen in Placerville, it was illegal to ride a skateboard anywhere. My first ticket in the ’80s was a skateboarding ticket. We rallied, met with city council and got land donated [for skate parks]. It only took 20 years to make it happen.”Back then, Scott and his friends hunted for empty swimming pools to conquer, a tradition that started in the ’70s. “We used to drive around at about 7.5 miles an hour, looking through slats of fences [to find] one that was empty or close to being empty.” Sometimes they’d ask permission from the owners, but other times the mission was to catch as much air as possible before getting chased off the property.  When asked why he still skates after more than 20 years and a host of broken bones and injuries, Scott admits that skating is his own form of therapy. “When you’re standing at the end of a deep swimming pool, going horizontal to vertical, zero to 20 miles an hour, everything you were thinking about before – it’s gone. You’re just thinking about holding onto that skateboard.”  For more on Scott Becker be sure to pick up this month's copy of Style-Folsom El Dorado Hills edition.
