Chase Stevens Las Vegas Review-Journal @csstevensphoto Joey Sonnier, of New Iberia, La., prepares to ride "Happy Valley" in the saddle bronc riding during the second go-round of the National Finals Rodeo at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas on Friday, Dec. 7, 2018. Chase Stevens Las Vegas Review-Journal @csstevensphoto He believes a higher power intervened that July afternoon in 2013, that there is a reason his wife returned home from work early, that while he was facing federal charges for conspiracy in regard to a methamphetamine addiction and the thought of taking another breath seemed desperately senseless, he just couldn’t shake a haunting image. “I saw her pulling into our driveway and seeing me hanging from a rope in the barn,” Joey Sonnier said. “I knew then things had to change, so I turned myself in to the law the next day.” If what cowboys say is true and there is no better place to heal a broken heart than on the back of a horse, perhaps also there is no better road to travel when accepting redemption than that between Omaha and Stephenville, from Nebraska to Texas, somewhere deep in the loneliness of Kansas, where the profound darkness on this particular evening was not meant to frighten but rather forgive. Sonnier was driving that open stretch a few months back, one where the moon acts as a rodeo cowboy’s compass between events, his two traveling partners asleep in the truck, when his tears could fill a bucking chute. A friend who was awfully good at math had earlier confirmed via text that the numbers were sound, that, at age 39, the cowboy from Louisiana who had fought more demons in 10 years than most men over a lifetime had indeed qualified for his first National Finals Rodeo. It wasn’t the only time Sonnier cried over all of it. Shoot, it wasn’t the hundredth. That he is here at the Thomas & Mack Center, a saddle bronc competitor who finished 13th in the regular-season standings, is a testament to his faith and the strength of a family that never gave up on him as he so often wanted to himself. Sonnier began using meth at 19 as a way to stay awake between rodeos while driving those dark back roads. And like a good saddle might when the horse is bucking and the rider is holding on with one hand while not touching the animal with his other for all of eight long, exasperating seconds, well, now, it just stuck. “I made it drug free until I was almost 20,” he said. “And then, for the next 10 years, there were more days I used than when I didn’t. I traded rodeo for meth, and things just spiraled.” He worked away from home shoeing horses at racetracks, where he could support his addiction making $1,000 a day while hiding it from wife Michelle. He would lie and tell her that he was clean. She knew better. So did his mother. But they stood beside him, because as sturdy as the cowboy is depicted in movies and books, the women in his life are the real strength from which he survives. “I’m not here without them,” Sonnier said. Drugs turned to gambling, and gambling turned to debt, and the law got involved. Sonnier was facing five to 10 years in prison when he couldn’t shake that haunting image of his wife arriving home to see him hanging from a rope in the barn. He instead would spend 2½ months in jail, enter rehab and be sentenced to five years probation. He did so well in his recovery and responsibilities that his probation was cut in half. Then, in January 2015, having gained 50 pounds and weighing 225, out of shape and broke, he agreed to attend a local rodeo with his family. Riding again In the darkness, a light was shined upon the chute as a way to open the competition, and suddenly, an announcer’s voice was talking about the cowboy and his dreams and those values for which he lives. The tears streamed down Sonnier’s face and he just knew: He hadn’t been on a bucking horse in 10 years but would ride again. He would lose the weight and set some reasonable goals, and things progressed as Sonnier made his way back to the rodeo circuit, along the way having a dream about the perfect saddle and actually building it well enough to have now started his own side business. His family is here: Michelle, son Kade, a baseball player at Nicholls State, younger daughters Kenley and Kylie, along with many others who lived the dark and stormy journey alongside him, overcoming one failure at a time. Sonnier has yet to cash after two go-rounds. “You know, I made a lot of promises to God along the way, that if he could just get me out of something, whether I was in handcuffs or sitting on the side of a road having run out of gas, that I would change and give up drugs,” he said. “I never held up my end. But now I’ve made a promise that I won’t break, and that is any time I have a chance to tell this story, I will. “A lot of people have asked me if I’m nervous being in (the NFR). I’m not. I feel blessed to be here. I’m going to leave the arena each night with my head held high. However this shakes out, that’s how it was planned all along.” He made another drive this week, coming around the Grand Canyon and eventually winding his way into the north side of Las Vegas, where in the distance he could see the lights of a lifelong dream realized, and through it all those demons came rushing back again. “I teared up pretty good,” the cowboy from Louisiana said. “It was an amazing feeling.” One so good that he would never return to his drug of choice? “Not today,” he said. “Not today.” More NFR: Follow at reviewjournal.com/nfr and @RJ_Sports on Twitter.

That, simply, Scheer received a darn good draw. Scheer won his second straight go-round in saddle bronc riding at the National Finals Rodeo at the Thomas & Mack Center, scoring a 92.0. It’s a Round 2 record, breaking the mark of 90 by Dan Mortensen in 2003. “You want to win every round and keep building off it, and then take that momentum and just have fun,” Scheer said. “It was all horse again. The chips are falling for me.” Scheer, from Elsmere, Nebraska, is third in the world standings with $164,304.20. He’s first in aggregate, having already earned $62,461.54 at the NFR. The other go-round winners were: Tilden Hooper, Carthage, Texas, in bareback riding (87.5 points); Tyler Pearson, Louisville, Mississippi, in steer wrestling (3.8 seconds); Kaleb Driggers, Hoboken, Georgia, and Junior Nogueira, Presidente Prudente, Brazil, in team roping (4.0 seconds); Marty Yates, Stephenville, Texas, in tie-down roping (7.6 seconds); Lisa Lockhart, Oelrichs, South Dakota, in barrel racing (13.65 seconds); and Joe Frost, Randlett, Utah, in bull riding (90.0 points). — Ed Graney Review-Journal [/rjtemplate]

Red Bluff Daily News
Tehama County was well represented by industry members at the 102nd annual California Cattlemen’s and CattleWomen’s convention at the Nugget Casino in Sparks, Nevada. Many times we are asked why do we go out of state for our annual meeting and the reason is, because it is much cheaper than having a meeting in California. The rooms at the national convention will be $190-240 a night, while we paid $59 plus taxes and fees. TCCA was represented by Vice President Mike McCluskey, State Directors Wally Roney and Steve Zane, plus members Bert Owens, Josh Davy, Jared Kerr, Kevin Borror, and David Stroing. David Daley, Oroville was CCA President at his final meeting, with Mark Lacey, Independence, installed as President. National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Kevin Kester, Parkfield addressed both organizations during the busy three days. TCCW was delighted to have member Callie Borror, Winters installed as state president for CCW. She is following the first California CowBelle President Freda Owens, Jean Barton and Joan Hemsted from Tehama County as presidents of the organization. Cheryl Foster, Montague was the 2017-2018 president. President of TCCW Anne Owens will be on the Board of Directors, while Mandi Selvester Owens is Social Media Chairwoman and Jean Barton is CCW Newsletter. The major event for the ladies was the CowBelle of the Year Luncheon with 160 in attendance. Our members were among the 25 honored with an engraved silver bracelet. Glenn-Colusa County’s Ann Butler, Tehama’s Linda Borror, and former member Paula Holden of Butte County were recognized. Our Bayer Beef Promotion & Education Book tied for second with Mid Valley CowBelles in the 51 to 100 member category while Alameda County took first. TCCW received recognition in the Walt Rodman Beef Promotion contest sponsored by California Beef Council. More recognition for the Earth Days and SERRF programs that members presented in the classrooms as part of Ag in the Classroom. Tehama County received 1st for our Beef Promotion efforts the past year, including our best fund raiser, “Beef ‘n Brew” in partnership with the Downtown Red Bluff Business Association, and the Red Bluff Bull & Gelding Sale “Good Morning Red Bluff” with the Chamber of Commerce in the 2018 Art Show. This coming year it will be held in the Bull Sale Trade Show by the Reynolds Ranch & Farm Supply booth on Jan. 24, 2019, at 7:45 a.m. Also recognized were the beef appetizers that were served to the Gold Country Cutters. We invite the public to the 67th annual Winter Dinner and 16th annual Scholarship Fundraiser on Jan. 5, 2019 at Tehama District Fairgrounds with a prime rib dinner for $25 presale. Tickets are available at Hawes Ranch & Farm Supply, The Loft, Golden State Farm Credit, RB Bull Sale office, Rabobank in Red Bluff and Corning, and Shasta Farm & Equipment in Cottonwood. In 2018 the two organizations awarded $27,000 in scholarships, thanks to the generosity of the many people and businesses. I was worried about the weather, since storms were forecast but it lightly rained on Wednesday and we missed the snow, heavy rain on Thursday, and had sunshine returning home on Friday. The snow on the trees at Morgan Summit was beautiful since there was no wind and it was cold. Salt Creek was running under the bridge on Highway 99-E, and I emptied 2.7 inches from the rain gauge. Thanks to social media we saw the flooding at the entrance to Tehama District Fairground. Those with grey hair remember the year at the Cattlemen’s Convention when chicken was served at the banquet. Chicken has never appeared on any menu in the years since. But cattlemen and cattlewomen will remember the banquet this year for quite a while, since the prime rib was overdone and nearly ruined, it was so dry, without the slightest trace of pink or beef flavor. The chef must not have known he was preparing a dinner for cattlemen, as well as how to cook a prime beef cut. … What a wonderful evening at the State Theatre, when we heard Petula Clark singing her songs for nearly two hours, with no intermission. Red Bluff was the next to last stop on her current tour, and if you were part of the full house you would realize how lucky we were. What a singer and voice. What energy as she moved and sang her songs. She told us how she came to sing “How Are Things in Glacco morra” in the movie Finegan’s Rainbow with Fred Astaire. Another song she sang was “My Love” as if it was recorded in Nashville as a current country western song. A great sense of humor as she visited with us. My favorites were “Downtown,” but also “Don’t Sleep in the Subway” and the dramatic “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” from Evita. However there was also “This is My Song,” “I Know a Place,” “I Couldn’t Live Without Your Love,” her new CD “Living for Today,” among others and the final song “I’ll Be Here For You.” Coming to the State Theatre will be Josh Gracin on Jan. 11,  and during  the Red Bluff Bull Sale we have Collin Raye on Jan. 22. Feb. 1 is Lorrie Morgan. Be sure to get your tickets. … Until Nellie Williams and Sister from Cottonwood came along, Barrel Racing was not my favorite event at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, which started on Thursday night, Dec. 6 on CBS Sports Network at 7 p.m. Now I look forward to see them run each night. Bill and I attended the National Finals when Joe Baumgartner was the Bull Fighter, and we would see life size posters of him and a Coors barrel in the various casinos. What an experience to be in Las Vegas seeing the different casinos, New York, New York, Treasure Island, the statues in Caesar’s Palace. The Chihuly glass flowers on the ceiling, the Bellagio Conservatory and Fountains. The gondolas on the water at the Venetian, and the experience of the neon lights on Fremont Street are a few of the memories.

This is the Stargazing Desert Retreat, a neighbor of fabled Pioneertown in San Bernardino County. The latter was founded by such Hollywood cowboys as Roy Rogers and Gene Autry, and dozens of movies and TV shows were filmed there in the 1940s and 50s. Now, many decades later, Pioneertown is enjoying getaway status as “the new Old West,” as The New York Times called it in 2016. The retreat is a six-minute stroll away, and the setting for a renovated ranch house in the midst of a Western movie set on the edge of the Pioneertown Mountain Preserve. The property is roughly 20 minutes from Joshua Tree and 40 minutes from Palm Springs. The main house is about 3,000 square feet and has two newly added casitas. In the living and dining rooms are vaulted ceilings and walls of glass. Throughout the home are ceramic tile floors with wood patterns, and a covered patio out back has a motorcycle for a chandelier. The train caboose has been renovated and turned into a separate, en-suite guest room. The saloon can hold around 80 people. There’s a blacksmith shop. A hotel, barbershop, jail, general store and a tiny church, plus the aforementioned House of Negotiable Affection are also part of the “town”. They’re mostly facades. All the furnishings in the house, caboose and saloon are included in the price, says owner Hugh Glenn. That includes 30 life-size cowboy and Indian mannequins, a large, bronze cast replica of Frederic Remington’s “The Cowboy,” an 1800s fire wagon, and a covered wagon previously owned by Montie Montana, the rodeo trick rider/roper, actor and stuntman who dazzled Rose Parade crowds for decades. Three riding rings and stables for eight horses help fill the Desert Retreat’s grounds. Another 7.3 acres spread along five nearby parcels also are part of the deal, says Tim Schneider of Bennion Deville Homes, the listing agent.

Much of his collection was destroyed in the Sawtooth fire of 2006. But Uddo rebuilt, adding even more features to his Mojave Desert playground. Then Glenn bought the place, and it again became “a toy to fix up,” as Schneider described it. “The house is totally unrecognizable from the original house,” Glenn says. “The land was totally flat and we added boulders and berms to provide privacy.  The recurring theme was to bring the outside of the desert in, where one can feel the land and enjoy the 25,000-acre land preserve in the distance. The views of stars from the living room, dining room, and outside patio are astounding and magical.” An ideal buyer would be someone looking for a family or corporate retreat or an Airbnb rental/investment property, Schneider figures. The house rents for about $2,000 on a weekend. The Times linked Pioneertown’s renaissance to an influx of artists, entrepreneurs “and other beautiful people from Los Angeles, Silicon Valley and New York City looking for a new hub for work or play.” At least one local spot, tiny desert bar Pappy & Harriet’s, has become an icon. Anthony Bourdain featured it on “No Reservations,” Billboard Magazine named it one of the top 10 hidden gems in the country, and a couple of years ago, fresh from the Desert Trip music festival, Paul McCartney stunned locals when he took to the stage.
