Instead of relying on harmful rays, Organic Bronze Bar?s organic, paraben-free formulas call upon natural ingredients such as walnuts, antioxidants, and pure botanicals to deliver a safe, natural-looking glow. Eschewing a ?one size fits all? experience, the staff custom blends each solution to suit differing skin types and applies it by hand to ensure even and streak-free coverage that dries instantly.

Roots owner and chef Brad Root uses seasonal, natural ingredients to prepare tongue-tapping dishes in an upscale dining environment. Split into three courses, the dinner menu harnesses locally harvested farm products to create deceptively simple dishes. Dive into the first course with Dungeness crab and avocado ($11) topped with vermouth vinaigrette, and then spear a baby-spinach salad with egg, bacon, and cider vinaigrette ($6.95). Main courses inducing mouth-clapping include chicken breast ($16.95) with Yukon Gold potato gnocchi and artichokes, a top-sirloin burger ($11.95) with grilled onions and hand-cut fries, and halibut fish and chips ($14.95) with coleslaw. Roots' lunch menu offers tinier tastes of many of the dinner menu's selections, with crispy fried oysters ($10.95) and a local baby-shrimp salad ($11) summoning sustenance from the world-weary waters of the Pacific. At lunch or at dinner, guests can satisfy grape-teeth with a choice from Roots' impressive list of local and California wines, or sip cocktails from the full bar.

Q&A with Denise Croucher, Aquatics Director

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

Swimming is a great fitness tool that people of all ages can enjoy. It is the one sport that positively cross trains for every other sport as well as being a sport that can be enjoyed your entire lifetime. How many football players are still playing in their 60s, 70s, 80s? Go to any Masters Swim Meet and there will be lots of seniors swimming.

Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not?

Although it is important to work hard to make improvements, working to the point of actual pain usually means injury, which is never a good idea.

What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?

Learning to swim is both fun and functional. Classes are focused on making the process as fun as possible while continuing to move the students to becoming competent swimmers. We have high expectations for our students but want to keep lessons fun enough they will look forward to returning each class.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Although this offer is just for beginners, we do offer programs for swimmers of all ages and skill levels, from triathlon training to pre-competition training. We also have a USA club swim team?the LaCamas HeadHunters.

Even though Nick Lisac is already a PGA Class A professional, he hasn't stopped setting goals for himself. In the future, he hopes to take a crack at the PGA Tour and become one of just 300 PGA Master Professionals in the world. Though they may not be driven by such lofty goals, golfers flock to NW Golf Academy at Sah-Hah-Lee Golf Course to push their own skills further. That's where Nick and his staff step in, tailoring instructional programs around every client's needs and aspirations.

Nick's approach starts with the basics, from proper setup and preshot routine to grip, stance, and posture. From there, he helps students build their swing one element at a time. Much of the work takes place inside NW Golf Academy's high-tech studio, which features video and computer analysis and high-speed swing analysis software. However, long- and short-game practice areas are available, too, so students can test out their new techniques right onsite instead of hopping out of the car and taking a few hacks at every red light on the way home.

Some runners race for the thrill of victory while others just want to escape from the living dead. Half traditional 5K, half horror movie come to life, the Zombie Run 5K has something for everyone. At the starting line, the human racers—known for their ability to enunciate, give warm handshakes, and appreciate paprika—are tipped off that horror looms as they embark from a flipped tanker that has spilled zombie-birthing toxic goo. After a 1K warm-up, the tension ratchets as contestants enter the second K's militarized zone, where the walking, lurching, and jogging dead begin to give chase.

Now since zombies are a fictional creation, they're played by fellow racers clad in bloody makeup and trained in zombie choreography. And since eating people is still illegal in the U.S., humans wear flags that the zombies grab in lieu of chomping. Zombies multiply like zombie rabbits across three more running zones, including a vaccination hydration center reprieve and a heart-pounding 2K free-for-all to the finish. Alive or "dead," everybody gets to finish the race, which is followed by the Quarantine Party—featuring live DJ music from alive DJs, snacks and refreshments, and movie-quality zombie makeovers for people who want to nail the job interviews they have the next day.

Of the 330 woodland acres upon which it's rooted, Camas Meadows Golf Club's 18-hole course covers just 90 of them. The remaining 240 are left to the whims of Mother Nature. As such, the fairways, crushed limestone bunkers, and greens rest between flowering meadows and swampy wetlands—all vying to snatch golf balls and mark golfers with their own brands of grass stain. Towering evergreen trees, meantime, seem to frame each tableau, including views from fairway approach shots into smooth greens and the vantage out over the 18th green from The Lower Terrace—the clubhouse patio warmed by fire pits. When a long workday precludes a round, the course's lighted driving range offers a measure of swing satiety with both grass tees and covered heated mats.
