Beetroot juice is one of the richest dietary sources of antioxidants and naturally occurring nitrates. Nitrates (not to be confused with ni- trites!) are compounds which improve blood flow through- out the body—including the brain, heart, and muscles.

SONOMA COUNTY, CA. ~ Creative Sonoma is offering free teaching artist residencies to Sonoma County schools who have students and/or staff affected by the fires - directly or indirectly. Provided at no cost to public schools in all grades, these residencies use the talents and training of a dy- namic group of teaching artists, crafting an experience tailored to each situation. Thirteen of these residencies have been completed so far at schools and Boys and Girls Clubs. And thirty-six more are scheduled for this fall. “These art residencies have the ability to help our youngest, and often most vulnerable, fire survivors find a way to make peace with their experience,” said Chair of the Board of Supervisors James Gore. “Being able to express their feelings through art is a solid step toward understand- ing and acceptance.” Residencies are still available in visual art, music, drama, movement, and the literary arts. Teaching artists and school staff plan together to create the most

effective experience possible. Artists engage with the same group of students for up to six hours of instruction, allowing ideas, discussions, and trust to fully develop in processing last fall’s fires. Residencies will be completed by the end of Octo- ber 2018.

The funds for these residen-

cies are available thanks to the generosity of Redwood Credit Union Community Fund, the Hewlett Foundation, and indi- vidual donors to Creative So- noma.

Creative Sonoma is dedicated

to advancing and supporting the creative community of Sonoma County. For more information on the residencies or to sched- ule an interview with a teach- ing artist or school site, please call Debbie Yarrow at 707-565- 6123, email Debbie.Yarrow@

Here’s a photo of my Ma, Muriel Yarcich, taken in Paterson New Jersey. She’s not on vacation. She lives there. She loves Upbeat Times and I mail it to her every month. She always gets a joke or 2 to tell her friends at St. Joseph’s Hospital where they all volunteer together. She’s 91 years young. Thanks for Upbeat Times! Keep up the GOOD work! ~Sincerely, Eileen Morab- ito, Sebastopol. In fact if you want to light up the volunteer lunch table you can give a shout out to: Muriel, Marge, Gayle, Annette, Arlene, Eileen and Ruth. I’m sure they would enjoy it.
