Campbell’s house for wheelchair accessibility.

On a seemingly normal day
in February 2012, Marcella Wagner’s life changed forever. On her way to school,
she was run off the road. Her car flipped multiple times. Nine months pregnant,
she was air-lifted to Mercy Medical Center where their son Logan was born early,
but healthy. Marcella, however, is now quadriplegic and desperately needs a home
that can accommodate the family of a new mother confined to a
wheelchair.

SOME BENEFITS OF MASSAGE THERAPY

December 7th, 2011 by admin

Today, the most common question asked about massage is, “Will it help my health and well-being?” The short answer is— Yes!  However, a far more important question which should be considered is, “Will it help me with my particular condition?”

 

Early writings on massage originated from many ancient civilizations… China, Japan, Roman, Greek, India, Egypt and many other cultures.   The Scholar Hippocrates wrote, in 460 BC, that “The physician must be experienced in many things, but assuredly in rubbing”.  An ancient Chinese book called “Huangdi Neijing, recommended “massage of skin and flesh”.

Massage therapy relaxes muscle tissue, which may lead to decreased nerve compression, increased joint space, and range of motion and can assist in reducing pain.  It also improves circulation, enhancing the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells, which helps to remove built-up waste products. Massage also induces relaxation, helping to lower the heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure; boosting the immune system; and generally eliminates or decreases physical and emotional stress. The combination of these improved effects have great value to the body’s health and well-being and are helpful for a wide range of conditions.  Some being:

Decreases pain and increases functioning in these conditions: Helps treat and manage symptoms or complications of: Other psychological,  emotional, and physical benefits:
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Sciatica
  • Tension headaches
  • Scoliosis
  • Torticollis
  • Tendon and muscle tears

  • Gout
  • Migraine and Cluster headaches
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Muscular dystrophies

Note: Massage therapy should never be used as a substitute for regular medical care or diagnostic purposes.  If you are under a doctor’s care, you should follow the medical plan and treatment which has been prescribed for you.

Whiskeytown Announces Temporary Closure of Crystal Creek Falls Area

July 14th, 2010 by admin
July 13, 2010
For Immediate Release
Sean Denniston (530) 242-3445

WHISKEYTOWN ANNOUNCES THE TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF THE CRYSTAL CREEK FALLS AREA

FOR SITE RESTORATION

The Crystal Creek Falls area will be closed for restoration starting Monday

July 19, 2010.  The area will remain closed through September, tentatively

reopening October 1, 2010.  Restoration of the area will include site

grading and revegetation of the large rock quarry at the beginning of the

short road leading to Crystal Creek Falls.  The goal of the restoration

project is to provide for public safety, erosion control, and to return the

area to a more natural state.  This project was funded through the American

Reinvestment and Recovery Act.  "This is a win-win situation for all

involved.  This project puts hard working Americans back to work to provide

for their families," stated Superintendent Jim Milestone.  In addition, the

project will return this rocky, barren and unstable section of the Crystal

Creek canyon to a more natural state where the creek runs clear and clean,

and native plants and wildlife of the restored landscape bloom and sing,"

furthered Milestone.

The origin of the quarry site was the construction of the Central Valley

Project, which created Whiskeytown Dam and the reservoir behind its earthen

mass.  The water of Whiskeytown Lake comes from seven year-round streams

that flow into the lake, and a diversion of water from the Trinity River.

Up to fifty percent of the Trinity River flows eastward through the

mountains via the Clear Creek Tunnel.  Blasted and dug from solid rock, the

tunnel extends 10.8-miles from Lewiston reservoir to Judge Francis Carr

Powerhouse, where the water reaches and sustains Whiskeytown Lake.  The

Crystal Creek rock quarry is comprised of the accumulated tailings,

estimated at 250,000 cubic yards, removed from the mountains as the eastern

side of the Clear Creek Tunnel was built in the late 1950's.

The tailings from the tunnel were graded and compacted to create the

largely barren and rocky site that park visitor's currently experience.

The revegetation efforts of the restoration project will be completed over

the next two years, enhancing the aesthetics of the site, and will serve to

stabilize the slopes, prevent erosion, and improve visitor safety.

"Visiting Whiskeytown is a premier park experience, and this project will

further enhance the wild and scenic beauty that our visitors come to

enjoy," concluded Milestone.

For more information on the Crystal Creek Quarry Restoration Project,

please contact Sean Denniston at (530) 242-3445.  For more information on

Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, please stop by the park's Visitor

Center from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., or call (530) 246-1225.  You can also
