Murphys, CA...Ted Z and the Wranglers to play at Brice Station. “Ted Z and the Wranglers deliver outlaw country-charged rock. Ted’s catchy story-songs are fully-realized tales of love, regret, getting older, and getting in trouble. The band stirs up its Americana influences, featuring quick picking and bluesy slide guitar over galloping train beats and swinging shuffles. In the span of a few years, Ted Z and the Wranglers have become one of Southern California’s most compelling and sought-after Americana/Country/Roots Music collectives.”

Doors open at 5:30pm and Concert Starts at 7pm.

06/20/2018 - Music in the Parks: Nathan Ignacio June 20, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Brice Station Vineyards
Murphys, CA...Nathan Ignacio is a rising star in California, having opened for such legendaries as BB King and Willy Watson of The Old Crow Medicine Show. Ignacio brings a modern take on the American folk revival tradition with songs that explore his sometimes hard journey through life. It's not all just melancholy; Ignacio can rock pretty hard on stage all by himself. He plays an impressive number of instruments—guitar, dulcimer, mandolin, harmonica, percussion—sometimes at the same time to build a complex sound that brings new life to old favorites like "Just the Two of Us," and steers new songs like "Tom Thumb" into the world.


Brice Station is the perfect place to listen to Ignacio, where you can watch the sun linger in the sky and sink into the blue twilight as Ignacio uses blues, folk, and Americana to weave stories that bring life into focus. Bring a picnic to enjoy, or purchase wine, soda, and snacks (no off-site alcohol allowed) for noshing while you listen and contemplate midsummer’s eve.

Music in the Parks is free to all, but we rely on the generosity of those who can contribute to make this program available to the community. Please help if you are able.

What is a Native Son of the Golden West?

What is a Native Son of the Golden West? Gold and “Newcomers” both have played a big part in the history
of the state of California, and both of them played a big role in the formation of the Native Sons of the Golden West.

To answer “What is a Native Son of the Golden West“
We must go back in history to the California Gold Rush, which was one of the unmatched marvels of American history. In 1848, California was a tranquil wilderness where the population density was so low that, on average, only one human being dwelt per each 528 square miles. But after President James K. Polk made the official announcement on Dec. 5, 1848 that gold had been discovered, things ramped up very quickly.

Gold seekers (mostly young men) came in droves from all corners of the earth. Within a short time, 100,000 people were living in California. They were industrious, civic-minded people. They held a Constitutional Convention, and activated a state government on Dec. 20, 1849. They acted so rapidly that it took Congress almost a year to catch up. Partially because California was not officially declared a state until Sept. 9, 1850.

It was an unparalleled phenomenon. No other American state has been organized in such “can-do” circumstances. But by the mid-1870s, many more new residents were flooding into California. They were Civil War veterans seeking grants of public lands. There were people who could enjoy the convenient transportation of the newly completed transcontinental railroad.

Old-timers shook their heads and worried that, with the nature of the population changing so rapidly. That it was only a matter of time before the colorful history of the Gold Rush and early-day statehood soon would be forgotten and neglected. So they hit upon an idea. Why not form an organization of men who had been BORN in California. Whose mission it would be to preserve the state’s history.

And that’s exactly what happened, causing the Native Sons of the Golden West to be formed on July 11, 1875.

What do Native Sons of the Golden West do?
UCSFCraniofacialCenterCheckCeremoneyLong before there were such things as state historical parks and the like, in the 1880s Native Sons kicked off fund-raising campaigns to save the disintegrating buildings that were icons of early California history;

We Native Sons also began placing historical markers and partnered with the state to encourage it to do the same (most notably starting with the monument at the gold discovery site at Coloma). Today, Native Sons are still very active:

Monthly Group (we call a parlor) Meetings. Our Charitable Foudation -provides funds to hospitals caring for children born with cleft palate Participating in local parades. Historical preservation. Dedications – including buildings or sites of historical importance. Sponsor history essay contents for school children, Scholarship awards to high school students, co-sponsor conferences and lectures and work with other historical organizations.

We also get involved in many other non-history related civic activities and charities. And we have our social side tooDonnerCelebration22. In this day and age, when it gets tiresome staring into the screen of a TV or computer monitor, we offer an alternative: The chance to look into real human faces at a multitude of dinners, family picnics, barbecues and other just-plain-fun events.

06/14/2018 - Disney's Beauty and the Beast to Aid Mind Matters
Columbia, CA...Sierra Repertory Theatre has awarded the preview performance of its production of the hit Broadway musical “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” to Mind Matters to be used as a major fundraiser. “We think this is a great way for people, young and old, to enjoy a wonderful evening in the theatre while helping Mind Matters to pursue its goal to help individuals and families cope with the consequences of autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and learning disabilities,” says Mona Kayton, the Mind Matters board member who is in charge of organizing the event.


The special performance will take place in the historic Fallon House Theatre in Columbia State Park on Thursday, June 14, at 7 p.m. In addition to the play, ticket holders will enjoy a reception starting at 5:30 that will include wine and other beverages, appetizers, and desserts. In addition, the theatre’s ice cream parlor will be open with a percentage of all sales going to Mind Matters. A raffle with two gift baskets, one for children and one for adults, will be held during the reception with the lucky tickets drawn before show time.

Based on the smash hit 1991 Disney movie and dating back to a late 18th-century classic French fairy tale, “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” tells the story of Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman who feels out of place in her provincial French village. When her father is imprisoned in a mysterious castle, Belle’s attempt to rescue him leads to her capture by the Beast, a grisly and fearsome monster, who was long ago trapped in his gruesome form by an enchantress. The only way for the Beast to become human once again is if he learns to love and be loved in return. That is Belle’s challenge.

The Fallon House Theatre production stars Brooke Quintana, as Belle and Daniel Rubio, as the beast. Dann Dunn is the director and choreographer with Ben Van Diepen as musical director. The show will run from June 15 to July 29.

Tickets for the Mind Matters event are $35 for adults and $20 for children 12 and under. It is open seating with no reserved seats. They may be ordered online at brownpapertickets.com or purchased at Mind Matters, 150 Big Trees Rd., Suite D, in Murphys. A Mind Matters board member has underwritten the theatre’s cost for the performance so all dollars raised will go directly to Mind Matters.

“Come enjoy a lovely summer evening at the theater,” urges Kayton. “Bring a child, invite other family members and know that you will be contributing to help off-set costs of services that we offer at Mind Matters which are developed specifically to target each individual’s needs.” 

Mind Matters is located at 150 Big Trees Rd., Suite D adjacent to the Murphys Post Office. For information about the clinic’s services, or to make a donation to help it meet its demands, contact Executive Director Trudy Lackey at (209) 728-2184, or visit the website www.mindmattersclinic.org.
