mathew Multi String Guitar Ensemble l r Matthew Foley Semathewan OConnor Robert Camilo Matthew Grasso Aya Ueda Miyan Grasso Harry Stoddard 1Multi-String Guitar Ensemble (l-r) Matthew Foley, Semathewan O'Connor, Robert Camilo, Matthew Grasso, Aya Ueda, Miyan Grasso, Harry Stoddard-


What’s better than one world class guitarist playing a six-string classical guitar?  Seven classical guitarists playing a total of 52 strings, that’s what.  Fortunately, The Multi-String Guitar Ensemble have been playing together for some so there won’t be any professional rivalry exhibited on stage.   It’s kind of like that old joke: “How many classical guitarists does it take to change a light bulb?  Answer - Ten.  One to change the bulb and nine to tell you how they would have done it better.”


Yuba Sutter Arts wants to help change the way you think about classical guitar. The community is in for a treat when it welcomes The Multi-String Guitar Ensemble to its Burrows Theater stage on Sunday, November 24th at 2pm.  Admission is only $15, and students may attend for free. The address is 624 E Street in Marysville.

This concert will showcase the rich sounds of some very unique instruments; 7- and 11-string guitars that expand the beauty of the classical guitar aesthetic. The program includes original compositions and arrangements of timeless jazz, and pop and some classical masterworks as well for various combinations of instruments and voice from solo to septet. The program will be diverse, eclectic, philosophical and maybe even a little educational.  You might even hear a Beatles tune or two.


The Multi-String Guitar Ensemble includes musicians Robert Camilo – alto extended 7-string guitar, Matthew Foley – extended 7-string guitar, Matthew Grasso – extended 7-string guitar, Miyan Grasso - extended 7-string guitar, Sean O’Connor – 11-string alto guitar, Harry Stoddard – 7-string guitar, Aya Ueda – soprano and mezzo guitar.


Founding member, Matthew Grasso, is a classical guitarist, composer and arranger, a musical instrument innovator and improviser who began playing guitar at the age of twelve.  He attended the San Francisco Conservatory where he studied with Scott Tennant and Dusan Bogdonovic and was in master classes with Eliot Fisk and the L.A. Guitar Quartet.  Mathew further complemented his training by studying the classical music of North India at the Ali Akbar College of Music with the late sarod master Ustad Ali Akbar Khan.  Currently, Matthew is on the faculty at Sacramento City College, Yuba Community College and American River College and teaches privately as well.


Matthew says, “One performance is worth ten lessons.  And you must love every note you play, whether a simple exercise, a single note or a composition…it is all the same.”

On the Marysville City Council agenda for November 19, 2019; under consent (without discussion) is "Agreement: New Economics & Advisory for B Street Property, Land Use Disposition Analysis"


This was discussed before with public input which said that the things the City Council is getting from this company they can get for free with commercial realtors. And at least list this property which still hasn’t been listed for quite some time and we’re now asking for more money to go to the consultants.


The City recommends that the Council Pass a Resolution amending an Agreement between the City of Marysville and New Economics & Advisory expanding the scope of work for an additional $9,000 and a new total not-to-exceed amount of $32,000.


The city  analysis states  Since undertaking the Scope of Work, New Economics & Advisory and City staff have realized that drawings of the various land use types that include setbacks and required parking would aid in understanding the site’s capacity and maximum building envelope thereby facilitating any future policy direction as to how to dispose of the property. In addition, the visuals would also help with further defining and narrowing the economic and market analysis.

 So what the heck is “A Tuna Christmas” anyway.  For starters, it is a very funny play with two actors portraying all 24 citizens of Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal, and Patsy Cline never dies! It’s 24 hours before Christmas and the delightfully eccentric characters are attempting to cope with seasonal traumas such as a disaster prone little theatre production of “A Christmas Carol,” and a highly competitive yard-decorating contest being sabotaged by a mysterious Christmas phantom who has been vandalizing the displays.


The Yuba Sutter Arts production of “A Tuna Christmas” will be performed at the Burrows Theater, 630 E Street in Marysville. Opening night is Friday November 29 at 7pm. There will be additional performances on November 30, December 6 and 7 at 7pm with matinee performances on December 1 and December 8 starting at 2pm.  General admission tickets are $20.  Students 18 and under are free with a paid adult admission. Light refreshments and beverages will be available.


“A Tuna Christmas” is the second in a series of comedic plays (preceded by “Greater Tuna” and followed by “Red, White and Tuna” and “Tuna Does Vegas”), each set in the tiny fictional town of Tuna, Texas.  Written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard, the plays are at once an affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes but also a withering satire of same.


“A Tuna Christmas” stars a powerhouse duo of local testosterone-laden talent, Jeff Graham and Travis Leonard, who will also explore their feminine sides as they portray a gender and age bending array of female as well as male characters both young and old.  The production is under the thoughtful direction of the very talented Gail Carter, whose work both on and off local stages has been enjoyed by the community for years.


Jeff Graham has appeared on local stages for longer than he can remember.  He relies on his innate acting ability as well as physical humor to engage with audiences.  “Heck, sometimes I just walk out on stage and stand up to my full 6’ ‘oh my God! Height’ and people just laugh,” he said.


Travis Leonard has been a regular featured player in both Acting Company productions as well as the Applause! series at Yuba Sutter Arts. Most recently he appeared in the show “Twisted” and brought the house down with his alternative rendition of Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!”


Jeff and Travis will have their hands full as they do split second costume changes in order to portray characters like Didi Snavely, the owner of Didi's Used Weapons ("If we can't kill it, it's immortal"), Stanley Bumiller, an aspiring taxidermist fresh from reform school, Vera Carp, town snob and leader of the Smut-Snatchers of the New Order ("until the Rev. Spikes gets out of prison"), Elmer Watkins, the victim of a tragic flamethrower incident and Pearl Burras, a riveter in Houston during the War (the Japanese "never sank one of [her] ships!")

A review in the New York Post said, “This play is so funny it could make a racoon laugh affectionately at Davy Crockett [...] It's far too good for just Christmas.”

California working landscapes provide economic vitality

California farms and businesses associated with agriculture continue to be economic powerhouses, according to a new study. It analyzed the economic contributions of California's "working landscapes" and found that agriculture and other support activities account for 6.4% of the state's economy, support more than 1.5 million jobs and generate $333 billion in sales. The value of the state's working landscapes comes in ahead of health care, real estate, retail and construction industries.

Survey says U.S. is No. 1 in food affordability

Americans have the world's most affordable groceries, according to an American Farm Bureau Federation analysis. The organization reported that people in lower-income countries spend much more of their household budget on food than those in high-income countries, and added that agricultural trade and policy can take some of the volatility out of global food prices.

California to exchange agricultural expertise with two countries

Two agreements have been finalized for agricultural information sharing between California and researchers in the Netherlands and India. The California Department of Food and Agriculture and the Netherlands Ministry of Agriculture, Nature, and Food Quality have committed to exchanging knowledge on topics including climate-smart agriculture, agricultural sustainability, water management and food waste. The second agreement between Fresno State University and Punjab Agricultural University in India involves sharing research on subjects such as water management, irrigation technology, agricultural mechanization and crop improvement.

Power shutoff may have boosted fire risk

A power shutoff meant to stave off a wildfire meant a Ventura County avocado and citrus farmer couldn't irrigate his crops for nearly two days--and when the Maria Fire burned its way into his groves, he couldn't help firefighters battle the blaze. That scenario is frustrating a lot of growers dealing with power shutoffs and the threat of fire. In Sonoma County, losses from the Kincade Fire are still being tallied, but one agricultural commissioner thinks vine damage may be worse than in 2017.

CHP reported that on Thursday, November 14th at approximately 4:50 p.m., a fatal crash occurred on Pass Road. A teenager was driving a 2019 Honda westbound on Pass Rd east of West Butte Rd. A second driver, Luke Flemming was driving a 2006 Honda eastbound on Pass Rd. east of West Butte Rd. A preliminary investigation indicated that one of the vehicles crossed over into the opposing lane and hit the other vehicle head-on. Both drivers received fatal injuries and were pronounced dead on the scene. A passenger from the first vehicle airlifted to Rideout Hospital for moderate injuries. Alcohol or drug intoxication is not suspected to have contributed to this collision.

SAN FRANCISCO — With winter right around the corner, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is reminding customers to call to schedule a free in-home safety inspection of their gas appliances. During the visit, PG&E will also relight pilot lights for customers who have older heaters or other appliances without electronic ignition that have had gas pilot lights turned off during warmer months.


Inspections help ensure that gas appliances, including water heaters, furnaces and ovens, are operating safely and efficiently, reducing the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning within the home. Carbon monoxide is especially dangerous due to the fact that it can’t be seen, smelled or heard. According to the Center for Disease Control, every year in the U.S. at least 430 people die from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning and approximately 50,000 people will be sent to the hospital. 


“The safety of our customers is our most important responsibility. To help ensure that gas appliances are operating safely, you can call us to schedule a free gas safety check, and we will send a qualified PG&E technician to your home to inspect your appliances.” said Vince Gaeto, PG&E senior director of Gas Operations.


Before the colder winter months when natural gas appliances typically see the most use, PG&E encourages customers to schedule an inspection by calling the customer helpline at 1-800-743-5000.


Helpful Winter Gas Safety Tips


  • Install carbon monoxide detectors to warn when concentration levels are high.
  • All California single-family homes are required to have carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Carbon monoxide detectors should be installed on every floor, near sleeping areas and common areas.
  • These devices should be tested twice a year, and batteries replaced if necessary.
  • Check the expiration date – most carbon monoxide detectors have a shelf life of five to seven years.
  • Never use products inside the home that generate dangerous levels of carbon monoxide, such as generators, outdoor grills, or propane heaters.
  • Never use cooking devices such as ovens or stoves for home heating purposes.
  • When using the fireplace to stay warm, make sure the flue is open so venting can occur safely through the chimney.
  • Make sure water heaters and other natural gas appliances have proper ventilation.
  • Click here for more winter heating safety and savings tips.

If you suspect carbon monoxide in your home, you should get out immediately and call 911. If a PG&E customer ever smells the distinctive "rotten egg" odor of natural gas in or around their home or business they should immediately evacuate and then call 911 and PG&E at 1-800-743-5000.

fountain house rd beforeFountain House Rd before repairsIn last week's edition we published that repairing the damage from the 2017 storms was completed at a price tag of $ 5 million. We now have pictures available for the before and after repairs on Fountain House Road.


The wettest winter in nearly a century brought significant damage to Yuba County roadways, the bulk being slipouts—where parts of embankments and road slipped down the hillsides. Retaining walls help hold in the embankment to rebuild a base for the roadway. 





Fountai House Rd afterFountain House Rd after repairsNearly 430,000 recycled tires were utilized as fill materials in repairs along seven roads thanks to a separate grant from CalRecycle. The TireDerived Aggregate (TDA) is made from shredded scrap tires and is used in projects like retaining wall backfill, lightweight embankment fill, and landslide stabilization. The material is lightweight, cost-effective, and drains well in wet conditions.

hand full a piano barFor those who may have never had the experience of hearing music at a piano bar, it consists of a piano or electric keyboard played by a professional musician, located in a cocktail loungebarhotel lobby, restaurant, or on a cruise ship.  Usually the pianist receives a small salary plus tips in a jar or basket on or near the piano, especially from patrons requesting a song traditionally written on a beverage napkin.  


In this case, Yuba Sutter Arts will be converting the Burrows Theater into a piano bar for one evening. Not one, but two pianists will be featured; the incomparable Gay Galvin and the legendary John Paris.   You will have the option to sit on stage, in the theater seats or even right up next to the pianists to make your song requests.  Napkins will be provided.


This unique event is happening on Saturday, November 16 from 6-8:30 and will feature heavy appetizers, a no host bar (including Martinis) and loads of fun.  Purchase tickets at the early bird discounted price of $15 by November 15 or $20 at the door.  For tickets, call 530-742-2787 or to purchase online go to The Burrows Theater at Yuba Sutter Arts is located at 630 E Street in Marysville.


Gay is trained in classical and jazz styles and has worked in big bands, musicals, jazz trios and classical ensembles. She has a master’s degree in piano performance in jazz and performs as a soloist and with her jazz trio all over northern California.


John has enjoyed an extensive musical career working with the likes of Merv Griffin, Jerry Lewis, the Minneapolis Symphony and the Moody Blues. Jazz runs through his veins and he even had his own show band in Las Vegas for many years.


Theatre historian John Kenrick describes the piano bar as “a hybrid creature: part performance space, part living room, and part saloon. The bar is there to sell drinks, the pianist is there to perform, and the crowd is there to sing, listen, drink and socialize. All of this means that it's impossible to predict what a given evening's chemistry will be, even if most of the people on hand are regular customers.  While every factor counts, the most important issue is the person at the piano. The pianist determines the type of music, the style of performance, and the general tone of the evening.... The experienced piano bar player knows how to take genial control of most any situation and generally keep the party going.”


Come join the party on November 16 and enjoy live music by two master pianists up close and personal at the Burrows Theater Piano Bar for one night only.

adventistJ. Eileen Morley, MD with patientWe have all heard of the Opioid Crisis, but what is anyone actually doing to help fix things?  Enter the California Bridge Program.  This spring, the Emergency Department at Adventist Health + Rideout was one of only 31 hospitals in California selected to participate in this evidence-based and common-sense program to help people who suffer from opioid use disorder, 24/7.


 The Opioid Crisis often hits rural counties the hardest, and ours are no exception.  According to the CA Department of Public Health, the rate of opioid overdose deaths in Yuba, Sutter, and Nevada counties all exceed the California state average.  There are many reasons for this, but one main reason is how difficult it has been to seek help.  Adventist Health + Rideout’s Emergency Department is changing that. 

When patients in opioid withdrawal come to the Emergency Department, they will be offered a dose of the medication buprenorphine (brand name Suboxone) to ease severe symptoms of withdrawal, and then they will be connected with outpatient treatment in the community. Our Emergency Department physicians, PA/NPs, and nurses have all been trained to treat an individuals’ opioid withdrawal symptoms with this medication which is quick to work and very effective.


The Bridge program also brings our community maybe the most important piece of this program – the Substance Use Navigator (SUN).  Our highly experienced and very down-to-earth SUN, Mr. Todd O’Berg, works closely with our Emergency Department staff and each patient to support them throughout the entire process, from admission into the Emergency Department through transition to continued outpatient treatment.  We have partnered with several local primary care clinics and substance use treatment centers in the area, creating a network ready to meet each individual’s unique needs.


Since the Bridge program started six months ago, Mr. O’Berg has been able to meet with over 300 patients in need of help with substance use disorders, be that opioid use disorder, alcoholism, or issues with other substances.  He is incredibly dedicated to helping patients be successful.  By scheduling a clinic appointment to continue treating their opioid use disorder in only a few days’ time, following up with them after their ED visit, and helping them overcome any unforeseen barriers, over 80% of these patients have successfully made it to this appointment.


One anonymous patient gave us this statement to share: “I would say, I felt completely hopeless and lost in my addiction.  I had no clue what to do to help myself get sober until I called the ER.  I think it’s amazing that the hospital offers what it does to help opiate addicts like myself get the help that they need by providing suboxone and drug counselors on site.  If it hadn’t been for the great staff there I don’t know where I’d be right now regarding my sobriety.  Not only did they care about getting me clean, they also made me feel safe and that I mattered.  Thanks to the program at Rideout, I am now three months clean and plan to keep working hard to stay sober.  I will be forever grateful for them and their program.”


Many people don’t know where to begin to seek help for their opioid use disorder.  And if they do ask their doctor, often the wait time for appointments or referrals is long.  Having the Bridge program at Adventist Health + Rideout’s Emergency Department means that anyone, anytime, in our community can access the best evidence-based treatment for opioid use disorder. 


In addition to the Bridge program, another way the Emergency Department is working to save lives from the Opioid Crisis is our participation in the Naloxone Distribution Project.  Naloxone (brand name Narcan) is a nasal spray medication that reverses opioid overdoses.  This medication is given out free of charge, with teaching on how to use it, to any patient or visitor in the hospital who thinks they might be in a situation to save a life when witnessing an opioid overdose.  Whether you are a police officer or fire fighter, someone who regularly uses opioids, a parent of small children who might accidentally get into someone’s pill bottles, etc, many of us may be in the situation where we can save a life by administering this medication to someone in need.  If you are in the Emergency Department, just ask any staff member for this medication, and then you too can be prepared to save a life.


If you or anyone you know is concerned about their opioid use and wants to discuss ways to get into treatment, please call our Substance Use Navigator, Mr. Todd O’Berg, anytime at 530-490-1285.  He can also be reached by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Whether in the Emergency Department or not, Mr. O’Berg is able to answer questions and help people through the steps to treatment.

This Christmas we invite you to visit Israel in the year 0000 to explore the life of Mary, Jesus's mother; just an average teenage girl in the town of Nazareth born to Jewish parents. She had brothers and sisters, friends and extended family, she carried responsibilities at home while nurturing dreams of her own. The event that set her apart was sealed when she put all that aside and said YES to God's call, unknowingly setting in motion Hell's opposition to the miracle of bringing salvation to all men. Share her faith, her obstacles, her triumph as she chooses obedience to Heaven's call.
