A patient wrote this about Tony Chang:
I started seeing Dr. Tony Chang at Shasta orthopedic a year ago. Over the last year I have received amazing care. He is great with cortisone shots that are almost pain free. He is a wonderful hands on Orthopedic doctor who truly cares about his patients. He also has a chiropractor, podiatrist, x ray, MRI and a pharmacy on site.

Dr Tony Chang will be at the Redding Rodeo with full medical care. For those of you who are participating in the Redding Rodeo stop in and meet a great doctor in person. From somebody who is squeamish about needles and doctors Dr. Chang always makes me feel at ease. He is the best in Redding. He is near Shasta Regional Hospital on Liberty.”

We are a community that is learning what it looks like to love God and love one another. When it comes to following Jesus we believe that the greatest sermon we could preach is the sermon of our lives. Our family at Living Hope is shouting the gospel with our lives!

Living Hope is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to love and serve low-income families and individuals in Redding by serving them in tangible ways. We are inviting people into an interactive exchange of services. Our food distribution has developed into what is called Neighborhood Networks, a new form of food cooperatives. This model of food distribution is an interactive way of engaging with our clients in ways that involve more dignity and accountability. We are trying to address the greatest needs among the poor in our community and strive to go deeper with people to see holistic transformation. Some of the greatest needs in our community that are not being addressed among the poor are employment opportunity and vocational training. We have witnessed these glaring needs and are in the process of developing tangible ways to help address these needs through our non-profit restaurant called “The Shack”, Life Cycles Bike Shop, and The Wood Shop. We are making every effort to create an environment in which people can come as they are, grow, and develop so they no longer need our services.

Woodys Brewing CO Beats Peanut Butter On Pancakes

Woodys Brewing CO
Okay, so this has nothing to do with comparing a pancake smothered with peanut butter to one of the Best Of The North State microbreweries, Woodys Brewing Company.  A quick overview of microbreweries first.

California Craft Beer Exploding
Microbrewery growth especially in California has boomed. Who would have thought that out of all the states California is the number one American crafts beer capital with Washington being second and Colorado being third?

As of 2014, there were 3,418 craft brewers in the U.S., an increase of nearly 20% over the year before.  Craft beer production rose 42% last year, and for the first time ever, craft brews accounted for more than 10% of all beer sales in America.   Woodys Brewing CO was in that 3,418.

Why Woodys Brewing Company Beats Peanut Butter On Pancakes?
Had a friend tell me about this place several months ago and was anxious to do a shout out about it especially since I’m a serious foodie guy that loves writing about the food, drink and entertainment industry.  You could say I’m La Cafe News.
When a musician friend from Sacramento and I pulled up we were amazed at all the vehicles parked in front of the establishment.  “This is good a good sign” I said out loud.  When walking in we were greeted with the soothing sound of chatting people.

When seated we noticed how simple and streamline the menu was designed, the video explains this.  Decided to order the Fish & Chips or should say Fish & Tater Tots.  When taking the first bite of the lightly battered fish you knew this was no frozen fish, we’re talking extremely fresh. The crispy freshness was matched with a bite out of the tater tot; I have to say, this by far are the best tater tots I have ever had in my life.  The tots are made from scratch and the outside of the golden brown crunchy skin is garnished with medium fresh garlic, kaboom baby!

Fresh Real Fresh
Scott one of the owners out of three and the hostess explained that everything is made from scratch and the chefs work together to achieve the ultimate foodie experience.  Could go on about the whole foodie experience and ambiance at Woodys Brewing Co but drinking their sampler of micro brews was a real pleasure.  How can you say one was better than the other when they were all good?  I compared my dire straights like playing that Chucky Cheese game beating the gophers over the head as they randomly popped their head up through the holes and you tried to bang them with that bulky soft mallet, which one which one?

Redding Reviews and Best Of The North State will be doing another shout out on this amazing local business in the near future and their vision.  Writing about their vision and goals is another editorial in itself but have to say the residents of Redding CA and NorCal are in for a big surprise.

Until next time, hold the peanut butter on those pancakes!

Woody’s Microbrewery

A little about Woody’s:
Woody’s Brewing Co. is a dream of many decades that has finally evolved from a love to consume and brew beer, to all other activities involved with it. We are a brewery that started out with three men’s passion to deliver good beer in a great atmosphere. We are believers of the do it yourself attitude and feel that mantra shines through in our high quality and artfully perfected ales. So… Do it yourself! Because it’s your actions that matter.
