Publisher Kathleen Sanchez Editor

We are back above Baseline this month with a new issue. We hope you enjoy it. What a difference a month makes. We are back this month with more editorial, restaurants and local businesses supporting our publication by advertising their products and services. We wish to thank each and every business that joined our magazine this last month, as well as those that have been with us from the beginning. We are growing fast and your support will continue to be appreciated. Beginning with the May issue we will no longer be mailing the magazine to every business in Upland and Rancho Cucamonga. We have learned most business owners live in the cities where their business is located and our business delivery is therefore redundant. However, we will still be mailing the magazine to every home and apartment in Upland and Rancho Cucamonga. In fact, beginning with the April issue we will most likely start mailing the magazine to every home in Claremont, increasing circulation to over 100,000 homes and 200,000 readers. Next month we will be announcing the winners of our Reader’s Choice Poll. Although the April issue will be going south of Baseline Road, we will again announce the winners in our May issue when we come back above Baseline so that everyone who voted can see who won. This month we have a brand new real estate section for you. We have homes for sale and a list of recent sales so everyone can see what homes around them are actually selling for these days. If you have any real estate needs, or you see a home that interests you, pick up the phone and call one of our many professional realtors. Do you like the roar of a powerful motor, the excitement of watching someone drive up to, or even over 200 miles an hour? If so, March is your month. The Auto Club 400 will be in town starting March 22, 2013, with some of the world’s best NASCAR racers. Making it even more interesting, Danica Patrick, the only woman in the race, will be in town to give the boys a run for their money. Get your tickets and be prepared for some serious excitement. We wish everyone a great month. Until Next Time,

more.” Although Upland is in the midst of budget cuts it applied for the State Local Partnership Program and received a $1 million grant. “Because of the infrastructure this was a longer project, but everything’s still currently on sched-

ule,” according to Critchfield. Soon residents and visitors can enjoy an upgraded, palm tree lined roadway and better utility functionality. So maybe a little traffic can be tolerated for the added benefits that are to come once this project is complete.

Women Finally Given Combat Opportunities Commuters have been facing traffic congestion in Upland when driving through Foothill Boulevard, Monte Vista Avenue and Central Avenue. Construction has closed some lanes for months. However, work is progressing and the $5.4 million roadway widening project is about three months away from completion. “We started back in August of 2012, and we should be wrapped up in the first part of June in 2013,” Principal Engineer, Bob Critchfield, said. “A lot of the work is complete between Central Avenue and Dewey Way. Right now our efforts are concentrated more on Dewey Way to Monte Vista Avenue, but its taking place in different phases.” Although the road work is still a pain for commuters, the construction and its phases have been necessary. Critchfield said, “These different phases of the project include many underground utilities, a potable water main, a recycled water main, a storm drain, a curb age gutter, raised median islands, landscaping, irrigation and much

Photo Caption: U.S. Marines consider female recruits for combat

The cities of Upland and Rancho Cucamonga are proud to be home to many male and female military veterans. Now veterans and others are waiting to see the changes for female enlisted personnel. In prior service years, female Marines held positions like aviation, medical fielding, high-tech jobs, and other high demand positions according to the Marines. Women also share the same pay scales and opportunities with most military occupational specialties (MOS). However, it was recently announced that

women will be allowed to take up active military combat roles. The U.S. Marine Corps recruiting center in Upland is enthusiastic about the change. “Actually, the change is not effective immediately,” Sergeant Michael Darnell, in charge of recruiting and public affairs said. “The Secretary of Defense has decided to lift the direct combat exclusion rule for women that was put into place in 1994, but the changes will not be fully integrated until January 1, 2016.” Darnell also said that there will

INSIDE Upland be ongoing research in regards to assigning females to expanded service opportunities. According to USA Today, there are more than 30 fields that have been closed to women. Currently, there are six female Marine applicants from Upland and Rancho Cucamonga. While the number of female enlistments varies each year, the Marine Corps is approximately 7 percent female. Sergeant Darnell said, “Although there are variations in the number of recruits, the Marines will always be efficient. As to the recruiting mission, we set recruiting quotas based on the needs of the Marine Corps. The Marine Corps has never had difficulty in meeting the assigned recruiting numbers and I don’t see this changing regardless of whether we’re being tasked with finding qualified males or females to fill our ranks.” With the anticipated changes, it is too early to know how it will affect female recruitment.

Upland Police Foundation Aids City and Community Needs There are many non-profit organizations in Upland. One in particular is the Upland Police Foundation. This organization not only helps to raise money for state of the art training for Upland police, but they also sponsor many youth activities as well.



The Upland Police Foundation was started in 1995 by then Upland Councilperson Gail Marie Horton. She was inspired by an LAPD program called, “The Parker Foundation.” Her brother, an LAPD SWAT member, made her aware of the foundation that provided LAPD’s funding for things like protective gear, advanced technology equipment and special tactics training. With the city of Upland closely watching its budget, some departments and programs are on their own to find funding for equipment and training. This is where the Upland Police Foundation comes in. Since 1995, Upland residents and businesses have generously donated over half a million dollars. The Upland Police Foundation is mostly funded through donations and uses the money equally towards three programs: high tech equipment, officer training and the officer/youth scholarship program. Jason Sgrignoli is one of the board members and a member of the financial committee. Officially he is the director of the officer/ youth programs for which he has been a volunteer since 2007. During this time there have been 250 youths helped and over $20,000 in awarded scholarships. “There are zero costs for any program expenses like mailing or operational costs,” Sgrignoli said. “One hundred percent of the money goes to one of the three programs.” Officer/youth scholarships in-

clude things like science camps, Pop Warner, AYSO and Little League. Interestingly enough, the scholarships are not always awarded based on financial need. Sometimes individuals are recommended by counselors or teachers to give them additional social skills, or to keep them out of trouble. Each recipient is connected with an officer or liaison that is there to support the youth of Upland and congratulate them on their award and accomplishments. The foundation puts donations into saving accounts or sometimes treasury bonds, depending on the needs of the organization. Every decision is voted on beforehand. Any income earned goes back into the general fund. As for high-tech equipment or training for officers, they have recently included drug enforcement training, traffic collision investigation and specialized training on interview and investigative techniques.

a one percent growth per year.” So why should population growth matter to you? An increase in population affects local schools, traffic flow, sewer systems and water supplies. “However, if the population did grow more quickly than forecasted, the 2010 General Plan is in place

to absorb the growth,” Granger said. This means the city roads utility conveyance, and the water and sewer service, would be able to accommodate the increase in population. If you are trying to plan ahead to 2020, at the very least you can expect to have 11,982 new neighbors.

Historical China House in Danger of Demolition

Since 2000 the city of Rancho Cucamonga has seen an increase in their population. This makes sense considering it is the third largest city in San Bernardino County. According to, from 2000 to 2010 there was a 29.4 percent growth in Rancho Cucamonga. As of 2012, the estimated population of Rancho Cucamonga was 171,176, according to CNN Money. This expansion can be attributed to a few things, according to one city official. “Some of the factors for the growth include quality of the built environment, newer housing stock, excellent schools, great parks, convenient and attractive shopping destinations and access to three freeways,” Senior City Planner, Donald Granger said. While the increase in population seems large, Granger said, “The city expects just


For over 100 years the Rancho Cucamonga China House has stood in what was, at one point, considered the city’s historical Chinatown. Once an average home in a community of about 50 ChineseAmericans, the house now sits desolate at the corner of Klusman Av-

enue and San Bernardino Road as it awaits the final decision of its fate. Currently in the hands of the Cucamonga Valley Water District, the China House has been declared as having structural deficiencies and was originally scheduled to be demolished by February 14, 2013.

INSIDE rancho cucamonga With ongoing protests by cultural and historical preservationists groups, such as the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the city has agreed to extend the demolition order until April 11. The planned demolition of the house has sparked an outcry within Chinese-American cultural groups, such as the Chinese Historical Society of Southern California. “They have attended many meetings, expressed their concerns, and provided comments,” Candyce Burnett said, who handles historical preservation in Rancho Cucamonga. According to the Chinese Historical Society of Southern California, it is their mission to “pursue, preserve, and communicate the history of Chinese in America…,” which can clearly be seen in their ongoing efforts to preserve the China House. The main issue at hand is that the Cucamonga Valley Water District does not intend to renovate the building in its current condition. The National Trust for Historic Preservation, however, contends that the best solution for the house would be for the Cucamonga Valley Water District to donate the property to someone who can fund the renovation. The coming decisions concerning the China House will determine the fate of this last remnant of Rancho Cucamonga’s Chinatown.

How Lucky Was This House?

Beginning in 2012, the City of Rancho Cucamonga required new tract homes to be built with fire sprinkler systems. In a recent residential fire in Rancho Cucamonga, a sprinkler system helped contain an electrical fire and kept damages at $5,000, instead of a possible $250,000. However, it was not the sprinkler head that put out the fire. Rather, it was the melting of the sprinkler pipe that contained the fire inside the garage wall of a two-story single family home. “The household is very fortunate, with the fire starting in a concealed space that the sprinkler system is not engineered to protect,” Fire Captain Specialist Timothy Fejeran said. “A fire that travels through concealed spaces can have the opportunity to grow prior to being discovered, compromising detection and escape time from the residence by the occupants. There have been articles published over the years highlighting fires being extinguished by a residential sprin-

kler pipe that begins to melt. This is the first incident that I can recall in Rancho Cucamonga where this has occurred,” said Captain Fejeran. The fire was reported on January 13, 2013. At approximately 1:40 p.m. units from Rancho Cucamonga Fire responded to the 11600 block of Amelia Drive and discovered the residential structure fire in the garage of the home. Fejeran said the fire was deemed under control when it was discovered that a melting fire sprinkler pipe above the garage was leaking and preventing the fire from spreading throughout the house. With the fire contained, fire units on scene were held to a minimum and fire trucks were cleared to make them available to respond to other emergencies, if needed. Although the direct cause is still under forensic investigation by an insurance company, Captain Fejeran said the company is focusing on the water heater as a possible origin. No one in the home was injured.

Colon cancer isn’t something most Americans like to talk about, but the month of March is a great time for that to change. March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. More than 140,000 Americans are diagnosed annually with this disease and more than 50,000 will succumb to it. Awareness of CRC has improved slightly over the last five years mainly due to the efforts of television news anchorwoman Katie Couric, who lost her husband to colon cancer in 1998. However, in comparison to breast cancer and lung cancer, awareness of CRC remains low. Patients find it difficult to discuss their colons, let alone agree to undergo testing. Research has shown that screenings can prevent a vast majority of all CRC cases, yet only 30% of all eligible patients actually undergo a screening. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimate that if everyone who is 50 years old or older were screened regularly, as many as 60% of deaths from this cancer could be prevented. While there are several methods of CRC screening, colonoscopy re-

mains the gold standard for early diagnosis as well as cancer prevention. Colonoscopy is a safe and reliable procedure which can diagnose and remove precancerous lesions from the colon. Most patients should be referred for a colonoscopy when they turn 50, but there are high risk patients that may meet the criteria for colonoscopy even before the age of 50. Research has also shown that diet and lifestyle changes can help reduce the risk of CRC. Our Western diet is typically high in fat and low in fiber and has been associated with higher incidences of CRC. Fruits, vegetables, and grains that are high in fiber can reduce the risk of developing colon polyps. The American Cancer Society recommends five or more servings of fruits and vegetables daily. There are many other foods in our diet that can contribute to colon cancer risk, as can a variety of other medical conditions. To learn more, in honor of Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, San Antonio Community Hospital is holding a free community education lecture. Find out whether you have the risk factors for colorectal cancer,

and how you can reduce that risk through diet and lifestyle. Attendees will also hear about the latest screening guidelines for the general population, and for those at high risk.

“See you in court” . . . Really!? Disputes are inevitable facts of life: broken promises, failed expectations, or just disagreements over agreements! They can cause disruption in relationships and business dealings, sever bonds of friendship and trust, and often lead to destructive wars in court. Our courts are seriously overloaded and increasingly failing to deliver justice to frustrated litigants. Using alternatives to court litigation may just be the right course of action for your specific needs! Try to envision being a party to a law suit! Write down the first few words that come to your mind. Now, compare your list with the one I compiled: expensive, protracted, hostile, intense, intimidating and frustrating. Protracted court litigation can often exhaust financial resources and emotional reserves before the case even gets to trial! Now, imagine a setting where you have control over the cost, duration and intensity of the process, freedom of choice in selecting your judge or dispute resolution professional, and most importantly, a wide range of options and control over the outcome. With serious budget cuts and shortage of judges, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is becoming the new norm for resolving disputes. The most typical form of ADR is a Mediation or Arbitration, where parties voluntarily, or through a contractual agreement or by a court order, select a dispute resolution professional as a neutral judge or Mediator. The sessions are held in non-intimidating and private settings. Arbitrations resemble the adversarial process in that the Neutral acts as a judge or the finder of facts, who issues an award based on the evidence presented by the parties (the award can be binding or non-binding depending on the circumstances of the case). In Mediation, however, the Neutral acts as a facilitator and skillfully assists the parties in reaching a resolution, without ever issuing an award. Instead, it is the parties’ agreement reached in Mediation that can be documented into an enforceable and binding order of the court. So, next time you are tempted to invite someone to “See you in court,” think twice and be sure to investigate and consider all of your dispute resolution options. I look forward to receiving your questions at

It’s not Gotham City and they don’t work at The Daily Planet. Nonetheless, Auto Club Speedway will be the destination for NASCAR’s Superheroes as they swoosh into Southern California’s premier motorsports facility to battle the two-mile track during Auto Club 400 Weekend, March 22-24. The 2013 Auto Club 400 story line weekend is filled with intrigue and suspense: • After years of trying, Tony Stewart captured his first Victory at Auto Club Speedway in 2010. His superhero skills gave him another win last year. Can he make it two in a row? • Will the newly designed cars go five-wide, side-by-side or will NASCAR’s new Gen-6 car go 6 wide? Or will the new design give them the ability to fly? • It’s never been one of his best tracks, but can current Sprint Cup Champion Brad Keselowski continue to knock out the competition in 2013? And of course everyone’s wondering if our home-state Supermen Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon will flex their muscles and put their extraordinary powers to work to add to their Sprint Cup titles this year. Can Jimmie make it 6? Will Jeff collect number 5?

While amazing powers and astonishing skills will be prevalent on the track, the thrills of the weekend won’t be confined to just the asphalt. There are plenty of incredible feats of entertainment, food and appearances lined up in the track’s FanZone. There’s no secret identity for Lefty, the Auto Club Speedway track mascot, who will be waiting for all families attending in his Lefty’s Fun Zone just behind the center grandstands. The young and young at heart will love all the interactive games, displays and photo opportunities. Kid-themed rides, activities and a few more surprises await you and your friends. Also in the FanZone, bring your rhythm shoes and rock out during Sunday’s pre-race concert. Check out Story Time with a NASCAR Driver in the FanZone on Sunday. Tony Stewart will use his power of transformation to turn his lead foot into a cement foot as he is inducted into the Auto Club Speedway “Walk of Fame” on Sunday. When you need a break and just want to chill, find a bench, grab a cold Coca-Cola and feel free to pig out on great eats throughout the FanZone including the new “Drivers Cuisine Cantina” where drivers Kevin Harvick, Jimmie Johnson, Juan Pablo Montoya and Danica Patrick, will “START YOUR TASTE BUDS”

with special entrees that they created themselves. How ‘bout Harvick’s ‘Harv-a-que” Sandwich, JJ’s “Guacamole Chicken Breast” sandwich, JPM’s “Fajita Lettuce Wraps” or Danica’s “Dip and Chips”? Stop by the “Drivers Cuisine Cantina” located on the east side of Impulse/APEX. From King Taco to Pinks Hot Dogs to Viva la Fiesta to drivers apparel the FanZone has something for everyone.

field is no pushover. A new hero lurks in the shadows, hoping to crash the party as Danica Patrick looks to establish supremacy in her first full season in the Sprint Cup Series. She’s well on the way, using her superpowers to become the first female to ever win a pole for a NASCAR Sprint Cup Race – this year’s Daytona 500. Will she bring the same game to the West Coast? Or will her powers be zapped?

Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Royal Purple 300 will see NASCAR Sprint Cup up-and-comers look to rule the two-mile oval with feats of greatness and nerves of steel, all masked behind a helmet and a ton of steel. Joey Logano took the checkers in March. The win gave Logano’s owner Joe Gibbs Racing’s its 8th straight NNS victory at Southern California’s premier motorsports facility. Does he have the powers to do it again? Also in the NNS race, Travis Pastrana, the extreme sports legend and X Games superstar will run the full 33-race 2013 NNS schedule for legendary owner Jack Roush and his schedule includes the stop at Auto Club Speedway.

Speedway President Gillian Zucker has wielded her super powers to allow kids 12 and under FREE Friday and Saturday and half off kids tickets on Sunday in the Auto Club Member Section. Other special savings for Auto Club members include $10 off on Saturday and a designated Auto Club member section.

Against the backdrop of the majestic San Gabriel Mountains and nestled in the confines of San Bernardino County, Auto Club Speedway has something to offer for race fans and

non-race fans alike. Superheroes in super cars. Extraordinary powers in an extraordinary venue. Cultural icons with something to prove at 200 miles an hour.

NASCAR’s only stop in Southern California is the only chance to see these superheroes battle side by side, wheel to wheel, bumper to bumper on the fastest track in the West. Tickets to see NASCAR’s band of superheroes start at $35 and as always, parking is free. Call 800-944-7223 or visit

The Cappelli’s Family The Cappelli’s Meet Your Neighbors of Upland of Upland

909: How long have you guys lived in Upland? Tony: We’ve been here since 1998. 909: Why did you move there? Tony: We moved to get a bigger house for our family. Sandy’s parents live half a mile away from us now. 909: How do you like Upland? Tony: Our life is here. Everything we do is here; the kids go to school here. Even our business is here. 909: What could be done to improve your city?


plant, nerve disorders, cancer or something of that nature. After a family is referred by a social worker, that’s when we help fill the gaps that are missing, because the time away from work has reduced their income or additional living expenses can’t be met. Sandy: Our son Steven was born in 2000. He died of heart complications. We started Steven’s Hope and help people across the world, but the majority of the famlies we help are in the Inland Empire, through our Fill A Need Program. The Housing for Hope program is where families stay in Loma Linda after transplants. We helped 1,700 kids last year.

Tony: As a city itself it has to get past some negatives that have been floating around and we just have to start looking at the opportunities.

909: How did you two meet?

909: Are you involved with your community? If so, how?

909: What made you fall in love with her?

Tony: We started Steven’s Hope in 2002 and provide assistance to families whose children have a serious illness or injury; organ trans-

Tony: There is our Italian heritage and we also had similar goals. On our first date we were talking about different things we wanted to ac-

Tony: Video Dating Service. Great Expectations had one in Upland and that’s how we met.

complish and years later we see many of those things have come to pass. 909: What made you fall in love with him? Sandy: He made me laugh and was a big supporter. He was an enabler for all my big ideas and still is. 909: Tell us one thing your wife does that annoys you. Tony: That’s a really bad question to be asking me on Valentine’s Day. 909: Tell us one thing your husband does that annoys you. Sandy: He has a lot of projects going all the time. Tony: We both know the projects are for her. 909: What do you two do for a living? Tony: We run a children’s charity, Steven’s Hope. For a long time we both had insurance agencies. Sandy is in the midst of a book launch about the journey she had during

the pregnancy with Steven and how Steven’s Hope started. She is an author and hopefully she is going to be a motivational and inspirational speaker.

909: How did the kids affect your life when they were born?


Sandy: We actually had infertility and didn’t think we’d ever get pregnant. When the doctors told me we were having two or three. Tony ran around saying “Cappelli party of 5!” and I went “Cappelli party of four is fine.” The twins work together. There was an instance where Nick escaped out of his crib and Alexa got her foot out like she was going to escape and he was going to catch her. I was juggling a career with Farmers Insurance, with the kids and then we got pregnant with Steven when they were 8 months old. He was given a fatal diagnosis, so we delivered and he only lived for a day. The kids were 16 months old so it was a pretty challenging time after that. But the kids are a blast.

909: If you could move anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Sandy: My parents are local. My mom comes in and works here all the time. I have sisters and an Aunt out here as well.

909: Tell us something unique or special about your kids.

Nick: I think it’s vanglorious.

909: What do you guys like to do together?

For the kids:

909: Do you think your job is challenging? Sandy: It’s challenging working with the families. It’s also very rewarding. No day is the same. 909: Tell us a little more about your family. Tony: Nick is the eldest by a minute, energetic, wants to be an actor and loves gymnastics. Alexa is the younger by a minute, very into the arts, has a great voice and is the current Upland Lemon Festival Idol, 2012. I have a brother who lives in Colorado.

As 2013 gets underway, we leave football in the dust and begin to focus on the game created by Dr. James Naismith over 100 years ago. Buzzer-beaters and screens have replaced tackles and first downs. There is plenty of excitement this year in the Baseline and Mt. Baldy leagues, as the teams all begin to jostle for playoff seeding heading into the first round of the CIF Tournament. paign, Coach David Smith has rea great deal of size in their interior, BASELINE LEAGUE bounded as the Grizzlies finished which accounts for their stellar deabove .500 for the 7th time in the fensive numbers.

DeFabiis will look to continue a strong campaign into the playoffs starting with La Quinta on 2/13. MONTCLAIR CAVALIERS 20-6 (10-2) With 10 wins both in and out of conference this season, Montclair proved they have a good chance to win no matter who the opponent is. Bill Blades and his staff have developed a respectable program, one that looks to be in the hunt for a league title year after year in the near future. The standout of this Montclair team is, by far, senior guard Jody Smith. Smith has been somewhat of a “Swiss-Army” player for the Cavs, as he leads the team in points, blocks, rebounds and steals. Smith and the rest of the Cavs do not intend to go quietly this season, as their playoff game against Chino Hills will no doubt be a hard fought game. DON LUGO CONQUISTADORS 15-7 (8-4) After two losing seasons to start his tenure, William Thigpen has apparently figured things out as he has completed his third straight winning season at Don Lugo. The Conquistadors ended the season on an impressive four game wining streak and begin the playoffs with a game against Western High School. While the process has taken several years, it appears that Thigpen, with the help of seniors like Jason Verde and Jorge Perez, has

Don Lugo poised to solidify a strong position in the Mt. Baldy League. ONTARIO JAGUARS 14-9 (7-5) After several lackluster seasons, Richard Johnson has his first winning season since the 08-09 campaign. Ontario went 3-3 to end the season and will look to make a surprise run in the playoffs after finishing with a winning record in the tough Mt. Baldy League. The roster has plenty of experience and there is no doubt Johnson will look to his senior leaders once the playoffs start. GAREY VIKINGS 8-19 (4-8) The Vikings have gone 8 years without a winning season and coach Tony Nguyen is hoping the losses will build character leading into next season. Defensively, no team gave up more points in the Mt. Baldy League than Garey and if they want to contend in 2014, defense should be the first thing they look to improve. With only six of their 15 players returning next season, Nguyen will be looking for a youth movement to revitalize his program next season.

season to start his tenure at Chaffey, coach Danny Ryan has a tough road ahead of him. There are a few bright spots on the horizon, however, as freshman Devon Harper saw some playing time this season that he can hopefully build upon as he attempts to right the ship for the Tigers. CHINO COWBOYS 0-22 (0-12) For the second time in 6 seasons, Chino’s basketball team went through a season without winning a game. Chino can chalk this season up to rotten luck, however, as they gave up the second fewest points on defense in the league. The Cowboys have some young players waiting in the wings, including standout sophomore Vic Lewis. While this was without a doubt a touch season for Chino, there are still aspects of the program on the rise.

CHAFFEY TIGERS 3-21 (2-10) The Tigers had another disappointing season in 2013. Two of their three wins were the results of forfeits and the 3rd was a close 52-51 win against Norte Vista. After a 4-win

Ten Simple Tips for Increasing the Value of Your Home Before Putting it on the Market It’s that time. You’ve decided to place your home on the market and upgrade to a bigger, better home. The question remains, however – what can you do to make your home more appealing and set it up for a quick sale. While there is many things that can be done, here are ten simple steps to add value and make your house move. Clean & Organize: Unclutter your house to make it look bigger and cleaner. Buyers need to be able to envision their own belongings in the home, so avoid using bright colors and too many personal effects. Keep Your Lawn Green: Get your lawn in shape. A patchy lawn takes away from the home’s overall appearance. Your local hardware store has supplies to re-seed those unhealthy areas. Add Insulation to Save Energy: The most inexpensive way to increase your

home’s energy is to add insulation which can reduce heating and cooling costs by more than 25%. Update Kitchen Appliances: The kitchen is often the room that buyers gravitate towards first, and an updated kitchen can help sell your home. You don’t have to remodel your kitchen to give it a new look. Updating your appliances to the current standard and replacing cabinet doors and hardware can make a big impact at a relatively low cost. Update those Bathroom Fixtures: A little change can go a long way when it comes to the look of your bathroom. Updating simple fixtures such as your sink and faucet can give any outdated bathroom style. And, according to Bankrate. com, minor bathroom remodels typically return over 100% of the initial investment. Build a Fence: If you’re trying to sell a

house, the appearance of a fence adds value to the home overall. Buyers with children or pets will appreciate the privacy and security of an enclosed backyard. Repair the Gutter: Ensuring that your rain gutter is clean is crucial in protecting your home against water damage. Light up the Outside: An easy and inexpensive way to increase your home’s outdoor space is to add lighting. It makes it more appealing and safer. Store and Organize: Ample storage space is a plus, especially when it comes to garages and closets. Efficient closet structures can help keep your clothes organized and can save space. Polish off the Basement: Rather than adding an additional room, it is more cost-efficient to remodel your basement. This adds value and usable space to your home for potential buyers to see.

Foodies: A R E YO U O N E ?

Wine & Dining


by Dean Rullan

Let’s go on a food run! Whether it is to dine in or to-go Foodies have become a staple for restaurants. There is a very likely chance you know a foodie or may be one yourself. Do you or someone you know experience the desire to take pictures of food and post them on a social network? Maybe you know someone who loves to write or sing about what they had for breakfast? Perhaps they have a strong urge to try something out of the normal fare menu? Then you or your friend exhibit symptoms of the common foodie. It is nothing to be alarmed about. The term Foodie is defined as someone who takes their love of food beyond eating out of convenience or hunger into a passionate activity. Foodies have become a movement that shows their expression as writers, photographers, competitors, or adventurers in eateries. They have a powerful influence that can sway other restaurant patrons’ hunger. Some restaurants have caught on to this movement and made alterations that help them stand out among the rest. Restaurants may make changes that keep their establishment interesting in order to have an identity amongst the mass of other restaurants, such as food trucks, food fusions and food challenges. Food trucks or County Fairs have been known to be the best places to cater to Foodies. They have been known to take ordinary food into extraordinary food, such as deep fried Oreos or chicken adobo burrito (Mexican/Filipino fusion). Restaurants have also been known to catch on to the popularity of such foods and have adapted them onto their own menu. Also, county

fairs have been known for their food competition in which some restaurants have adapted their own contests with their own rewards. If you would like to become part of this movement you don’t have to wait for a food event in your area to start. You can start at your local restaurant and ask for something unique in their menu or ask if they serve something not in the menu that you can try. Another alternative is just to stay at home and be ordinary. There are over 700 restaurants to choose from in our area, so get out there and try something new.

Made in America

Paul Niederer is an American Veteran. He served his country proudly and he serves his customers proudly on a daily basis. Paul is the owner of Cost + Mattress in La Verne. Unlike most of his competition he’s more concerned about selling the “right” mattress rather than selling “a” mattress. His family has worked in the mattress manufacturing industry for nearly thirty years and in that time he has seen many people taken advantage of by the big-name brands. “When I first started, I thought about stocking the big-name brands. But when I went to check things out, some of them weren’t entirely made in America, and, to be honest, the family-owned companies just made a better bed,” Niederer said. “Every mattress in the store from the coils to the top-stitching is made in America - even our pillows.” “I try and educate customers about what to look for when purchasing a mattress,” said Niederer, who served in the Air Force during Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm. “I show them what’s inside the big-name mattresses and what’s inside ours. We’re making beds the old-fashioned way, with the two-sided

cotton, button-tufted beds that we all grew up on when we were kids. The kind made to last. I also let them know they don’t have to spend a fortune to get a good mattress. Just because it is a more expensive mattress doesn’t mean it is the best mattress for you.” Something that Paul teaches is the “mattress rule of thumb,” which is that the cost of a Mattress should equal out to about $100 to $150 per year. Paul is outraged by an advertisement claiming mattresses should be changed every “8” years. “They say a mattress doubles in weight in eight years, well that’s just not true,” Paul said. “The only reason to change your mattress is when you are no longer comfortable on it, or you are changing to a different sized mattress. I can tell you that at least half a dozen times I have told people to put their money back in their pockets and come back when they are uncomfortable on their mattress.” At Cost + Mattress you’re given a 100% money back guarantee. Why not talk to Paul before you make your next Mattress purchase? Asked what message he would like to leave our readers with, Paul said, “I sell a great night’s sleep at shockingly low prices. If you’re not happy with any mattress we sell, I will give you 100% of your money back. That is how I sleep at night.” Cost Plus Mattress 1147 Foothill Blvd La Verne, Ca 91750 909-392-5554 Mon-Fri 10-7 Sat 10-6
