Squaw Valley Institute: The medicinal use of marijuana.   Leave a comment

By Tim Hauserman

Eight year old North Tahoe resident Julian Gaube suffers from cerebral palsy and a rare form of epilepsy called Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome. For a time, Julian suffered up to 30 seizures in a day, and his parents began desperately searching for an answer to reduce the number and length of Julian’s seizures. They discovered, CBD, a compound produced by marijuana which doesn’t have the “get you high” effect of the THC portion of the plant, but which has been shown to help kids living with seizure disorders. While Julian still has seizures, they are much less frequent and less devastating then they were in the past.

Julian’s mom, Moonshine Ink Associate Editor Kara Fox, will tell her son’s story as the introduction to a special presentation by the Squaw Valley Institute on the medical benefits of cannabis, and the research that is being done to use cannabis to improve people’s health.

Following Fox, a panel discussion on the topic will be led by Denver Relief Consulting co-founders Kayvan Khalatbari and Ean Seeb. Denver Relief is a cannabis dispensary which regularly serves several thousand patients in Denver, Colorado. According to the Squaw Valley Institute “Khalatbari worked with entrepreneurs pursuing business in the cannabis field who are interested in social responsibility and like minded endeavors.” He was also a founding board member of the Board of Directors for the Medical Marijuana Assistance Program of America (MMAPA), and works with at-risk kids through the Denver Kids program.

The event will be held at the Resort at Squaw Creek, on January 29th. Door open at 5:30 and the presentation begins at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $15.00 for adults and free for SVI members. For information go to squawvalleyinstitute.org.

Upcoming Squaw Valley Institute event: On February 4th, Meg Crofton, Retired Walt Disney Executive, will share her amazing experience of working for Disney for 35 years.

Spring road ride: Verdi   Leave a comment

By Tim Hauserman

After all the rain last week, spring is forecast to once again be sprung in the mountains, leading many folks to get a hankering to be out on their bike. With the morning temps still nippy and a bit of mud around, now is a perfect time to head to Verdi for a ride. Its only 20 miles east of Truckee, the grass is green, the horses and llamas are out enjoying the sunshine, and the temperature is usually 10-15 degrees warmer bringing it right into the Goldilocks zone.

Start your ride from Crystal Peak Park, just off Business 80, a short distance from Gold Ranch. The park sits next to the Truckee River and there is plenty of parking, picnic tables and restrooms. From here you have several options:

-Head east from Verdi, following the Truckee River to the edge of the Sommersett development. Here you can climb on nicely maintained bike lane through the extensive residential community enjoying views of Reno and the surrounding desert. Turn around wherever you wish and return to the bottom, where a bike path leads you east to 4th Street. Take 4th to Mayberry, then follow Mayberry for a mile, to a left turn into the Edgewater Park development. Cruise through the neighborhood to a bike path, and now follow the bike paths and roads along the Truckee past a series of riverside parks. Before you know it, you are in downtown Reno, at the Reno Whitewater Park.

-Want to add some distance? Before heading east on Business 80 from your starting point, ride South Verdi Drive to Boomtown. Cross over I-80 and circle through the lovely neighborhood to the south, adding an extra half hour of riding.

-Ready to make a day of it? Just after you turn onto Mayberry take a sharp uphill turn onto Plateau, and then wind your way all the way across Reno to the Mt. Rose Highway and back for about a 45 mile trip. Check out the link below for the Reno Area bike map, and be sure to take a copy with you on your ride.  The purple line is the ride I just described.

Quick tip: Don’t forget to fill up your tank at Gold Ranch before returning to California. The gas prices are usually at least 60 cents a gallon less then Truckee.
