- Romance language led to love for French-U.S. couple
By Louise Rafkin - Friday Oct 23, 2015
Romance language led to love for French-U.S. coupleThe two were gathered with a large group of international friends, and clearly some didn’t understand the significance — or the importance — of watching a Super Bowl game with respect.Chasa, 29, who grew up in San Diego and Minneapolis, shot the Parisian a look, but he and his friends seemed not to notice.[...] the next time they really met up was with the same gang, again experiencing a slice of Americana:By the time they jumped on their return flight to San Francisco, Chasa was thinking, “I’m with this guy.”Dating was easy and instant.Chasa, who works as the public-relations coordinator for Gensler, a global architecture and design firm, hadn’t been looking for a boyfriend.[...] it wasn’t long before she could imagine herself making a family with Sébastien, who works for Apple as an operations manager.“Sébastien is like the boy in elementary school who teases you and you know it’s because he likes you,” she said.Within the next two years, the couple moved in together and also visited France, where Chasa met her future in-laws.When he returned, he fell on two knees and grabbed her right hand.When Chasa tried to direct him upwards — “It looked a little like begging,” she said — and urged him to take her left hand, he insisted it was in the French tradition.Despite the cultural differences, the gesture held truth; Chasa said an unequivocal “yes” to his proposal.The couple’s May wedding in Napa Valley began with a service at St. Helena Catholic Church.The reception, at the Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch in St. Helena, was accented with floral blue toile and celebrated the couple’s American and French cultures.The bride wore an elegant handcrafted Trish Lee fitted and flared gown with a crystal beaded belt, draped with a lace off-the-shoulder capelet.Four bridesmaids wore blue floral pleated chiffon floor-length gowns, a tip of the hat to the French theme.Desserts from both cultures were plentiful: chocolate cream pies, lavender-infused wedding cake, pot de crème and beignents.Just over a hundred guests played games outdoors, danced and, when evening fell, roasted marshmallows over open fires.Louise Rafkin is a Bay Area freelance writer.St. Helena Catholic Church (ceremony) and Farmstead Long Meadow Ranch and Winery (reception)

- Tick towns: Researchers target neighborhoods in Lyme effort
By MICHAEL HILL, Associated Press - Wednesday Jul 5, 2017
With a bumper crop of blacklegged ticks possible this season, researchers in a Lyme disease-plagued part of New York's Hudson Valley are tackling tick problems across entire neighborhoods with fungal sprays and bait boxes.The $8.8 million, five-year project aims to find out if treating 24 neighborhoods in Dutchess County for ticks, also known as deer ticks, can significantly reduce cases of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses.An insecticide in the box kills any ticks on mice and chipmunks, two animals largely responsible for infecting ticks with the bacterium that causes Lyme disease.Thomas Mather, director of the Tick Encounter Resource Center at the University of Rhode Island, said executing a well-designed study large enough to produce valid results is a "Holy Grail" of tick researchers.Phillip Baker, executive director of the American Lyme Disease Foundation, said the neighborhood approach sounded like a good one but noted that ticks are a resilient parasite.
