Coachella Update and more! Hello Lovers of Arts and Music!
The sold out Coachella music festival ,which takes place
in Indio, California, has become one of the coolest of its kind. The two-weekend event that takes place April 13-15 and repeats itself April 20-22 is only a few weeks away and plans to be one of the biggest music festivals of the year. The headliners this year on each of the weekends are The Black Keys, Radiohead, and Dr. Dre And Snoop Dog. There are also some pretty good supporting acts including Pulp, Bon Iver, At the Drive-In, Noel Gallagher (Oasis), Artic Monkeys, and also our personal favorite new band, Wild Flag, who play on Sunday, April 15, and Sunday, April 22. If you are unfamiliar with Coachella and Indio, it is lo-
cated in the California desert off route 10 in between Los Angeles and Phoenix. The concert usually sells out and has been a major concert attraction since about 1999. Many major artists have performed at Coachella including Prince, Paul McCartney, and Rage against the Machine but it’s also the newer and more obscure bands that make it a totally cool event. Nick Nolte: If you are a fan of the great Nick Nolte, then
you must see the 2008 documentary film entitled “No Exit.” It essentially documents the career of the rebel actor with

Q: What’s left that is safe to eat! Every day there is another food scare, another opinion about what’s good and bad to eat. Even buying a loaf of bread is a challenge. Who can you trust? ………… Audrie, S A: Those of us over 50 like to wax nostalgic about ‘when we were young’ we…… But I think there is one area in which that might actually have been true—the food we eat. Before the over farmed products became widely available, the genetically modified products hid- ing unmarked on the store shelves, there actually was some food value in what we ingested. We didn’t have to be sleuths to figure out if it was going to hurt us, or call ourselves wellness warriors in order to adequately feed our growing families. We also didn’t have to fight off the onslaught of advertising and creative marketing to encourage purchasing of the excess produced in this country’s agricultural system. You know the drill, you buy what is advertised as
“low fat,” “high fiber,” “natural,” multigrain” and think you’ve done the ‘right thing.’ Even the most sophisti- cated customer can be taken in. Most people see “mul- tigrain” and think “whole grain,” but that isn’t neces- sarily so. When you see “enriched wheat flour” on the list of ingredients that means refined flour, often made from GMO grains. When you are shopping for “whole grain” products such as whole wheat, whole oats or brown rice, make sure it is listed first and preferably the only grain listed. I’ve never understood the point behind things like
reduced fat peanut butter. The oil is the healthiest part of the nut, having the most nutrients. When you take the oil out it is replaced with other things, including more sugar. According to a recent Harvard study, eat- ing one or two ounces of nuts or regular peanut butter is associated with lower body weight, reduction in heart disease and lower cancer risk. To me, what is most insidious is the supposedly
’healthy’ food that masquerades as beneficial, but does more harm than good. Energy bars, for instance. They are advertised as meal replacement bars to build mus- cle and lose weight. In fact, they are glorified candy bars with added vitamins or fiber, and yes—sugar. Check the label and see what position the sugar is. Of course it is often hidden as maltose, dextrose, corn syrup, glucose, carob syrup, date sugar, diatase, ethyl maltol, grape sugar, honey, agave, lactose, mannitol, brown sugar, buttered syrup, barley malt, beet sugar, corn syrup solids, sorbitol……... You get the picture. And then we could go on to chips. We believe if the
labels says “baked” or “low fat” that it is healthy . Most of these are made with refined (GMO) grain or starch, lots of calories but no nutrients, raising our risk of heart disease, cancers, diabetes and weight gain. If you must have something crunchy, try Wasa or Finn Crisp Original Rye crackers, whole grain products with low sodium content. If chips are your nemesis, try Terra Chips made with sliced vegetables or even a 100 per- cent whole grain chip fried in healthy oil like coconut or canola. Tortilla chips and Sun Chips are two examples. Remember though, a serving is one ounce of chips. How is it that Subway gets away with marketing
their products as healthy when the meat is processed meat, the sauces are filled with sugar and preservatives and they sell junk food cookies and soft drinks as add- ons. For example, their Honey Oat Bread ingredient list includes Honey Oat topping (soy grits, sugar, rolled oats, thickener, honey powder, molasses powder, salt, flavor, caramel coloring. At least four sources of sugar listed. For a complete list of food content check them out online. (Click thru on the online version of this ar- ticle).http://www.subway.com.au/assets/documents/
As to who can you trust, I’m not sure I can answer
that. To quote Oprah, “What we know so far” seems to change all the time. Butter used to be bad but has been reclaimed of late (more details in upcoming articles). Salt used to be really, really bad, but now has been found to be absolutely essential. Eggs had a bad rap and we were told led to high cholesterol. Now it’s been discovered that egg eaters actually have lower serum cholesterol levels then those who don’t eat eggs. Have a question, or is there something you’ve always wondered about.

female cat. Although I’m about 5-years-old I have the energy and disposition of a kit- ten. I’m very active and playful. I’m also very loving. When I hear someone coming, the meowing begins. I have a cute little cry that makes people smile. I’m so cute that I’m irresistible. Come by and visit me at the CCC and see for your- self! If you can’t adopt me, maybe you could spon- sor me. Anyone can sponsor a cat by giving a monthly donation for that cat. You give any amount you wish, & your name is placed on the cat’s cage as his/her sponsor (if you want). There’s no commitment. However, most sponsors usually try to continue their sponsorship until that cat gets adopted to his/her forever home. The CCC is also in need of volunteers for all shifts. We
have morning shifts, and afternoon/evening shifts 7 days a week. Please visit our website, stop by our shelter dur- ing open hours or call our Volunteer Coordinator Carrie at (860) 963-1298 for more information. We are also in need of supplies, such as bleach, towels, paper towels, toilet paper, wet and dry cat and kitten food, trash bags, and Clorox wipes. Any donations are greatly appreciated. They can be dropped off at the shelter when we are open. We also have some TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) Clinics
coming up soon. If you know of stray cats in your area, please call Trudy at (774)230-6108 and our volunteers will come and trap the cats. The cats will then be neutered, given their shots and flea/tick medicine, and then returned to the area. This is done to prevent cat overpopulation. It is a program that is free to the public. The next TNR clinics will be on April 22, May 6, and June 10. Also be sure to stay tuned for our upcoming Spaghetti
Supper and Annual Kitten Shower. These events are fun for the whole family. We can’t wait to see all our friends there! The CCC is located at 289 Main Street in Webster. We
are open Wed 3-6, Thur 1-4, Sat 2-5, and Sun 3-6. We can be reached at (508) 949-0779. For more information visit our website at www.ccatconnect.org
