Professional Salinas Dog Trainer and Behaviorist Barbara De Groodt Named to IACP International Hall of Fame

Salinas-based professional dog trainer and animal behavior counselor Barbara De Groodt has been named to the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP) International Hall of Fame. And she never saw it coming.

Salinas, CA, October 05, 2018 — Salinas-based professional dog trainer and animal behavior counselor Barbara De Groodt has been named to the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP) International Hall of Fame. And she never saw it coming.

“I had absolutely no idea it was coming, none whatsoever,” she says, when she was presented the award at the IACP’s annual conference in St. Petersburg, Florida. “My staff sure knows how to keep a secret. When (at the conference) they started to talk about people (who were nominated) and it narrowed down to me, I said to myself, ‘oh my god, this isn’t good.’ I cried.”

Luckily for De Groodt, she didn’t have to give a speech, but accepted the award onstage and later took some good-natured ribbing from a friend for the rest of the night of “Crybaby! Crybaby!”

“It’s quite a privilege,” she says of the award, which is awarded to “heroes … within the dog industry who have made an impact on the world of dogs and provided the dog world with a legacy that will always be remembered.” “It’s one of those things, you go through life, work hard and hope to one day be recognized by your peers. This is why I do what I do. When John Rogerson, one of my mentors, say these things about you, that means a lot.”

Here’s what Rogerson, one of the world’s leading dog trainer and behaviorists and founder and lecturer of United Kingdom’s Northern Centre for Canine Behavior, wrote in his letter of nomination to the Hall of Fame:

“There are few characters in the dog world that not only inspire others but also can walk the walk where many sadly are just able to talk the talk,” he wrote. “I have known Barbara for more than 20 years and have seen first hand not only her ability to work with her own dogs but also her ability to work with owners and other canine professionals to improve their understanding of their canine companions. Barbara unselfishly gives much of her free time to helping and supporting many worthwhile canine projects and also, despite her huge wealth of knowledge, still travels extensively at home and abroad to further her own education. There is no other trainer from the U.S.A. that I have ever endorsed, Barbara is one in a million and deserves international recognition for her amazing life and lifetime achievements.”

“I was teary-eyed when I read those letters, especially the ones from my mentors,” she said. “My peers were the ones who nominated me, that made so much of an impact on me. You know somebody is watching.”

De Groodt founded From the Heart training and dog behavior counseling in the late ’80s, but she’s been working with dogs since she was a pre-teen.

“I’ve been training dogs since I was 8 or 9 years,” she says. “My dad trained German short-haired pointers.”

Along the way she’s won a number of awards, including the 2011 Westminster Dog Show Trainer of the Year, Purina Pro Plan’s Show Dog 2010 Trainer of the Year and is a certified Pet Tech pet first aid instructor.

From the Heart’s training philosophy includes positive reinforcement, training to mold a dog’s behavior into a desirable asset, and trust: “Trust is the key word in the methods used at From The Heart, however, trust must be earned by and from your dog.”

“Dogs are, by nature, social animals and look to us to provide leadership that is fair and non-judgmental. My commitment to you is to provide you with tools needed to change undesirable behavior into desirable behavior. A dog’s friendship can be a wonderful one if you both have similar goals.”

De Groodt says that her training methods are rooted in tried and true methods, but that it’s a “constant growth.”

“I tell my students don’t ever think you know everything,” she says. “You should always be able to adjust. It’s a constant evolution.”

All submissions must be in the English language and must be received by the close of the submission period, Oct. 15. Incomplete submissions may be ineligible for consideration.

Food and craft vendors can apply at https://marcatoapp.com/forms/mcf2018/fooddrinkvendorapplication and https://marcatoapp.com/forms/mcf2018/artgearapp/new. Deadline for application is Oct. 15.

Since its inception, the festival’s foundation has been charity, giving more than $50,000 to local charities over the past 19 years as a registered nonprofit 501(c)(3).

Brown founded the Monterey Cowboy Poetry & Music Festival in 1998 in an effort to preserve the culture of the American cowboy, while doing all he could to give back to the local community.

In an effort to continue Gary’s commitment to giving, the festival has announced the formation of the Gary Brown Scholarship Fund, which will focus on students in seventh to 12th grade in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties who are looking to enhance their music education in the areas of school tuition, music camp tuition, private music lessons, or musical equipment purchase/repair.

Mi Rancho® Introduces Organic THINcredibles™ Corn Tortillas – All the Freshness and Flavor with Half the Calories, Twice the Joy

Mama Carol’s THINcredibles latest addition to Mi Rancho’s line of organic corn tortillas.

San Leandro, CA, USA — Mi Rancho® (http://www.mirancho.com), a Bay Area food innovator in the production and global distribution of tortillas and Mexican foods, introduced a new low-calorie corn tortilla product, Mama Carol’s THINcredibles™. These organic tortillas are thinner than Mi Rancho’s flagship organic corn tortillas with half the calories and are available through select retail grocery stores.

THINcredibles are made using the same traditional methods as all Mi Rancho tortillas using whole kernel corn cooked with lime which is ground into fresh masa with hand-carved lava stones. What makes THINcredibles different is they are thinner, so each tortilla has only 35 calories, while still offering the supple freshness, performance, and flavor that distinguish all Mi Rancho tortillas.

THINcredibles also are the first tortillas in a new line of Mama Carol products, named for Carol Berber of the Berber family which has owned and operated Mi Rancho since 1954. Carol has been developing new recipes featuring unique ways of incorporating tortillas. The recipes are available in a series of videos, Mama Carol’s Mi Rancho Kitchen, which can be viewed on the Mi Rancho website and YouTube.

“We developed THINcredibles for weight-conscious customers who are interested in healthier eating,” said Carol Berber. “These thinner tortillas are made using the same family recipe and attention to quality as all our products, but with half the calories. They are great for tacos, tostadas, enchiladas, homemade chips and strips, and all the dishes you would make using regular corn tortillas, only with fewer calories.”

Like Mi Rancho’s other organic corn tortillas, THINcredibles are certified organic by the USDA and have been verified by the Non-GMO Project. They are gluten free and contain no saturated or trans fats.

THINcredibles will initially be offered in select retail outlets, including Raley’s, Bel Air, Nob Hill, Bristol Farms, Gelson’s Markets, Lunardi’s, Mollie Stone’s, and Oliver’s Market. Additional retailers will be added in the coming months.

For more information, visit http://www.mirancho.com.

About Mi Rancho
Mi Rancho® is an innovator in the specialty foods market specializing in tortillas and Mexican food products. Founded as a family-run Mexican bakery and grocery store in Oakland in 1939, Mi Rancho started to expand in the 1950s, providing tortillas to local restaurants. Today the company remains family owned and operated by the third generation of the Berber family, with plans of succession to the fourth generation currently working within the company. Mi Rancho produces 4.5 million tortillas each day or 1.3 billion tortillas each year, serving various segments including foodservice, retail, industrial, and international. Despite Mi Rancho’s growth, the company is still operated with a passion for excellence and a commitment to produce the best quality tortillas made from local California ingredients.

Quality Expert Daryl Guberman Celebrates “American First” With US-Led ABAC Gaining On Chinese ran Accreditation Organizations

There’s a largely unseen and unknown clash between US-led accreditation organizations like ABAC and Chinese-led groups like the China-led- IAF & ANAB. Daryl Guberman-CEO, of Guberman-PMC has been doing his best to educate on this issue in a series of YouTube videos and they seem to be gaining real traction.

New York, NY, USA, October 1, 2018 — News of the US-China trade war and accelerated foreign policy aggressive measures on both sides have pro-American companies very suspicious of those who choose to work very closely with Chinese-led organizations, businesses, and accreditation groups. Leading the way in educating in this area is the 30-year long experienced quality expert, CEO and founder of Guberman-PMC, and potential independent political candidate Daryl Guberman. Guberman recently celebrated in a new YouTube video titled, “American First: China-Led IAF & ANAB Losing Ground To US-Led ABAC”, where he pulls no punches discussing the issue.

“It’s great to know after all the hard work the team at Guberman-PMC and I have been doing to promote the idea of ‘America First’ when it comes to working with accreditation companies is starting to bear fruit in very big ways,” remarked Guberman. “I feel it my duty as a patriotic American, who also happens to be Jewish, to stand against these ties and alliances being made between American businesses and organizations that hate America, hate Israel, and actually, in some cases, sponsor terrorism.”

Guberman-PMC is affiliated with the pro-American, United States-based, and patriot-ran ABAC. Guberman-PMC are happy to offer a wide range of ISO certifications, including highlights like ISO 9001 – Quality Management Systems, IATF 16949 – Automobile Related Products, ISO 14001 – Environmental Management Systems, ISO 13485 – Medical Devices, AS 9100 Rev D – for the Aerospace Industry, GMP 2015 – Good Manufacturing Practices, VOB 9009 – Veteran-Owned Businesses, CWOB 9009 – Woman-Owned Businesses, MOWB 9009 – Minority Owned Small Businesses, ARM 9009 – Firearms and Armoring Systems, CAN 9009 – Medical Cannabis Testing, and KOSH 9009 – Kosher Foods & Processing, to name just a few.

For any ISO needs potential clients are encouraged to reach out to Daryl Guberman and the team to see how they can best meet a business’s needs in an efficient, ethical, and cost-effective way.

Breast Cancer Assistance Group’s ‘Pink Partners’ Promotion with Local Businesses Raises Funds for Breast Cancer Patients

One in eight local women will experience the physical and emotional ravages of breast cancer.

Monterey, CA, October 02, 2018 — One in eight local women will experience the physical and emotional ravages of breast cancer. Breast cancer has high financial costs and many breast cancer patients find themselves unable to work during treatments.

The Breast Cancer Assistance Group of Monterey County (BCAG), an all-volunteer organization of breast cancer survivors, provides need-based grants that help patients in active treatment with their basic living expenses.

In honor of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, BCAG is partnering with local businesses to raise funds and awareness to enable BCAG to help local breast cancer patients experiencing financial hardship due to their diagnosis and treatment.

One hundred percent of every dollar donated through BCAG’s “Pink Partners” promotion with local businesses will go to help breast cancer patients with food, housing, utilities, transportation, and other daily-living costs. During the past year BCAG awarded more than $116,000 to 77 local women.

BCAG is encouraging the public to show their support for helping the local community by patronizing the following businesses, participating in their special events and purchasing “Pink Partner” merchandise.

For the third year Pebble Beach Resorts will be showing its support for BCAG by donating $1 from every glass of rosé wine and “October Rose” cocktail at the following restaurants and bars:

• Stillwater Bar & Grill

• The Tap Room

• The Bench

• The Terrace Lounge

• Gallery

• Peppoli at Pebble Beach

• Roy’s at Pebble Beach

• Sticks

• Stave Wine Cellar

• Traps

• Spanish Bay Lobby

Quail Lodge & Golf Club will once again join the global effort to raise awareness on breast cancer through its Quail in Pink initiative. This year all fundraising proceeds will be donated to BCAG. Details on special events, including the Quail in Pink Afternoon Tea, the Quail in Pink Drive for the Cause guided motoring rally and Horsepower Happy Hour, Signature Pretty in Pink Vodka Cocktail, Quail in Pink embroidered apparel and accessories, and other specialty items for sale in the Golf Shop, Edgar’s Restaurant and Waypoint Bar & Deck can be found by visiting Quail in Pink

Carmel Valley Athletic Club will throw its annual Party in Pink, on October 20th from 10:00 – 2:00 p.m. This is a club-wide event open to members and non-members that donates all of the proceeds to BCAG. Members and guests who donate $20 or more will receive their own “Party in Pink” merchandise and will be able to utilize the club for the rest of the day. In addition, The Refuge outdoor relaxation spa will donate 10% from all gift certificates purchased throughout the month of October and $5 for every Deluxe Admission purchased on October 20th.

McIntyre Vineyards will once again hold its popular “Barre, Boobs & Bubbles” class on Friday, October 19th from 5:00pm – 7:00pm in the McIntyre Tasting Room at The Crossroads in Carmel. The class will be taught by Arianne Bautista, owner of CarmelBarre. All proceeds will be donated to BCAG. Call McIntyre Vineyards at 831-626-6268 to register for the event. In addition, McIntyre will donate 15% of sales revenue for purchases of 2017 Rosé of Pinot Noir wine throughout the month of October.

About Ruccello Olive Oil

RoseAnne Fischer of Monterey has such a passion for Extra Virgin Olive Oil that she founded her own company in 2017, Ruccello Olive Oil, to offer consumers the highest quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil from the best producers from around the world.

RoseAnne is also committed to educating the consumer on the many health benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and how to be a discerning consumer through olive oil tastings, olive oil and food pairing events and house parties showcasing the liquid gold.

She will have 10 different kinds of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Italy, California, Spain, Greece and Turkey available on her website, ruccellooliveoil.com, as well as soaps and lotions made from olive oil. She also hopes to import European antiques in partnership with a company in Carmel Valley.

Her business took root in 2015 when she and her husband bought a small house in Tuscany nestled in the Chianti hills, with vineyards and olive groves everywhere you could see.

The idea of running her own olive oil business inspired her to take an Olive Oil Sommelier class to learn everything she could about olive oil.

And among the things she learned was the fact that many olive oils for sale in the U.S. are mislabeled and adulterated and that customers were being duped into buying Extra Virgin Olive Oil that was either virgin olive oil or lampante oil, which is not fit for human consumption.

So the Monterey, California native decided she wanted to educate American consumers and offer them the best Extra Virgin Olive Oil that the world has to offer.

“Consumers know that olive oil is good for you, but there are a lot of myths about it out there,” she says. “I want to share what I’ve learned and I want to provide a product that people can trust and feel safe in the knowledge that the products are of the highest quality.”
