JUDGE a stand for justice. for
How to Judge a Judge?! Primary Election is June 7, 2016 Whether by gubernatorial appointment, or elected by the voters
through an electoral process, candidates for San Bernardino County
Superior Courts will compete in primary elections on June 7, 2016. For an incumbent judge who is running for re-election without opposition, there is an automatic win following the general election on November 8, 2016. A judicial candidate (not an incumbent), however, can only win the race if she or he either receives a majority of the vote in the primary, or in the absence of a majority vote, succeeds in defeating
his or her opponent in a two-candidate race in the November general
election. Judicial elections in California occur in even numbered years,
are non-partisan elections and are for six-year terms. The candidate who is elected to the judicial seat must be able to handle various calendar assignments in many of the areas of the law such as civil, family, juvenile, probate or criminal.
In this historic presidential year election, the voters participating
in the primary election on June 7, have the critical task of becoming informed voters before exercising their privilege of electing a judge.
In judging the qualifications of many candidates listed on the ballot,
one must consider and weigh a combination of qualities and attributes including, but not limited to, the following: The candidateâ€™s level of
integrity, character, enthusiasm, ethical and moral standards, neutrality, commitment to the letter and spirit of law, personal and professional
reputation, scope and breadth of education and experience, communica-
tion skills, intellectual and emotional intelligence, firmness, decisiveness, open mindedness, keen perception, ability to apply legal principles and analysis to the facts and circumstances of each case, comprehension of nuances in the facts and arguments presented, and meticulous expression and articulation of decisions and rulings made on matters.

New Multi-Day April Horse Show at Silverlakes
Story by Matt Komoto
he Silverlakes Equestrian and Sports Park is a new 122-acre park in north Norco that is being built to be a premiere equestrian sports complex. At the time of this writing it was still in its first phase, with two current competition arenas and two warm-up arenas. Susan Smith and Betty Bullman of Parkside Horse Shows will present a first multi-day structured horse show at Silverlakes Equestrian and Sports Park on April 2-3, utilizing a hunter-jumper arena and an equitation arena. There also will be flat classes and cross rail classes up to three feet six inches. Smith and Bullman have the goal of having 100 horses at their show. Parkside Horse Shows is sanctioned by the Orange County Horse Show Association, Inland Empire Hunter Jumper Association and the Greater San Diego Hunter Jumper Association. The April event will be rated by Orange County, San Diego and the Inland Empire. Member competitors can earn points for the year in those associations. Smith said that although she will be busy managing the event, at least three of her clients will attend because they are excited the event will be at the new facility. MARCH/APRIL

undeniable Elegance With her demure smile and that brilliant
With her demure smile...Kate Winslet is pushing the envelope of society’s norms
British sensibility, Kate Winslet seems like the last actress to push the envelope of society’s
norms. Yet, she has been a lightning rod for
everything from bucking the too-thin trend in Hollywood to taking on roles that range from
Jane Austin to erotica; from small, independent
films to the blockbuster, “Titanic.” All of which goes to show that her real life is much different than her reel life.
Nominated for an Academy Award this
year for Best Supporting Actress for portray-
ing Apple genius Steve Jobs’ colleague, Joanna Hoffman, in the movie “Steve Jobs,” earlier
this year, Winslet won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress-Motion Picture for
the same role. Winslet owns the distinction of
being the youngest actor in history to have been nominated seven times for an Oscar – winning once in 2008 as Best Actress for “The Reader,” in which she played a former concentration camp guard.
To get a glimpse of the real Kate, check
her out on a talk show – or if she’s on Graham Norton or some equally British chat show –
and you’ll see a bit of the naughty girl she rarely shows in the movies.
Winslet really opened up on “Jimmy Kim-
mel Live” as she discussed, among other things,
Susan Sarandon’s breasts, the fact that she, like many
others, believe Rose let Jack die at the end of “Titanic”
and the endearing way fans love to see her and Leonardo
DiCaprio together nearly 20 years after filming “Titanic.” Kimmel spoke with the actress about reuniting with
DiCaprio at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in January, and was quoted in a Gossipcop.com article as joking,
“In a way, you let him freeze to death in the water.” At the end of “Titanic,” of course, Rose is left floating on
a wooden board as she lets Jack slip away into the sea. Winslet laughed, “Yeah, I agree. I think he could have actually fitted on that bit of door.”
The actress went on in the Gossipcop.com article to
say, “People are always so excited to see Leo and myself in the same space… That’s so lovely, isn’t it?” Winslet added, “It’s been 20 years, and people still get such a
kick out of it. It’s really quite endearing.” She also said
that she and DiCaprio still find the controversy over the movie’s ending humorous. “We were giggling about it
last night. I was like, ‘My God, can you actually believe
that people just get so overwhelmed by the Jack and Rose thing?’” noted Winslet.
She and DiCaprio have remained close friends.
Winslet’s three children refer to DiCaprio as “Uncle Leo.” After filming “Revolutionary Road” in 2008,
DiCaprio bought Winslet an inscribed gold ring, but she keeps the inscription a secret.
Winslet, 40, was born and raised in Reading, Berk-
shire. She was born into a family of English thespians, including her parents who were both stage actors, her
maternal grandparents who ran the Reading Repertory Theatre and an uncle who was a stage actor and fixture in the West End. Winslet’s big break came when she
was 17 and cast as an obsessive adolescent in “Heavenly Creatures (1994).”
Not yet a household name, Winslet joined an open
audition for director Ang Lee’s “Sense and Sensibility”
(1995). The movie’s star, Emma Thompson, was immedi-
ately taken with the young actress and recommended her for the role of vivacious Marianne Dashwood. She won the British Academy Award and an Oscar nomination
for the role. She later did two other period pieces, including Kenneth Branagh’s “Hamlet (1996).”
Shying away from the sudden global popularity, Winslet
was rumored to have turned down leading roles in “Shakespeare in Love” and “Anna and the King.” Winslet chose smaller art house films like “Hideous Kinky” and “Quills,” in which she
played a chambermaid of the Marquis de Sade. In 2008, she won the Oscar for the film, “The Reader.”
Winslet has been married three times and has three chil-
Next was the role that defined her to American
dren. In 1998 she married assistant director Jim Threapleton and

to their son, Joe Alfie Winslet-Mendes. They amicably separated, then divorced in 2010. In 2012 Winslet married Ned Rocknroll and had another son.

Southern Californians have a fantastic opportunity to be outdoors almost all year long because of our weather. With the time change in Spring we can enjoy outdoor activities even longer. We are lucky to have these trails right outside our back door. This is a wonderful opportunity for hikers, runners, mountain bikers and horseback riders to explore the foothills of a national monument. President Obama declared a portion of the San Gabriel Mountains
a national monument in the fall of 2014. From Glendora west to Rancho Cucamonga east the national monument of the San Gabriel Mountains is cradled. We have very popular trails just below the monument. Two of which are the Marshall Canyon Trails in city of La Verne and the Claremont Loop of the city of Claremont. Marshall Canyon Trail- Located in La Verne. 3.5 Mile loop trail. Features streams and is good for all skill levels
with a number of activity options. The trail is open all year long. Dogs are welcome on leashes. Good parking area. Horse rentals for guided rides are available at the Marshall Canyon Equestrian Center at the start of the trail. Claremont Wilderness Trail- Located in Claremont. 4.6 loop trail. The trail offers a scenic view and a moderate hike. Open March to March. Bring your dog but must be on a leash. Paid parking area.
When you are out on these trails you are among the most beautiful landscape in California. On these hikes and rides you may see deer, rabbits but beware of the bears, mountain lions, coyotes, rattle snakes and poisonous plants. Just be prepared and the best protection is to be aware of your surroundings and know you are entering the wild lifeâ€™s home. Make sure you keep your pets on a leash for their safety as well. Happy Hiking, Biking and Riding!
style matters By Sid Robinson
ost people really don’t think about how they drink a beer. Pop open a bottle or can of your favorite brew and you’re probably pretty happy. However, there’s much to be said about presentation, and that’s not just in how the beer looks in your glass before it heads to your belly. How a beer is poured, its temperature and the type of glass it’s in all influence beer quality. Style really does impact substance. The idea of having the “coldest beer in town” isn’t always good. Sure, it’s hard to beat a cold light lager served at 38 degrees at a ballgame on a hot

summer day. But there are optimum temperatures for chilling different styles of beer. For example, most English ales and Belgian styles should be slightly warmer at around 45-50 degrees, and darker and heavier beers often need a little more time to warm up to around 55 degrees. Many bigger beers lose some of their full body and character when served straight out of the
fridge or the tap.
The glass the beer is served in also matters. There is proper glassware for different beer styles, with each designed to best capture and present the beer’s aroma, bringing in the olfactory component to round out the experience. Tall Pilsner glasses are ideal for pale lagers and allow the head of tiny bubbles to maintain
its perfect level without overflowing. But not even the glass can hide a careless pour. Take your time, angle the glass and let the brew flow slowly down the inside wall. Tulip glasses and smaller snifters are best for heavier and more intense “sipping” beers. Even with less carbonation in some of these brews, it’s still wise to pour carefully. Stouts and porters using the nitrogenated method for carbonation are different. Nitro beers should be poured hard down the middle of an upright pint glass. Instead of rising from the bottom of the glass, the bubbles cascade and swirl, allowing for a more predictable head at the end of the pour and a silky mouth feel. Perhaps the most popular beer vessel at craft breweries is the tapered “shaker pint” glass, despite the fact that its shape does little to enhance the beer’s flavor or aroma. They’re also great for collecting, and most local taprooms offer them for sale. They’ve also proven to be a popular giveaway at promotional “tap takeover” events, such as those held almost every Friday at Pacific Wine Merchants in Upland, where $15 gets you eight beer samples and a pint glass to take home.
Simple and somewhat skinny cylindrical shape that gets wider as it goes up
A strong, narrow base, and a distinctive curve to it as it goes up, much taller than a pint glass
SNIFTER Small with a thin stem and footer, but the large bowl on top holds plenty of liquid
The stange glass is tall and slender, It’s simple design can be traced back for decades
PILSNER Tall and skinny with little-to-no curvatures as it goes up
A long thick stem, with a bowl sitting on top, goblets can be found in a variety of sizes
Top rim of this glass curves outward, forming a lip that helps ensnare the foam head

Everything “ I do is about
bringing peace and justice to society
AZIZI By Elaine Regus
Whether she’s mentoring young women for gender equality, advocating her client’s cause, or mediating courtroom cases, Soheila Azizi is driven by one goal.
States from Iran to escape religious persecution, said her Baha’i faith guides her in building strong communities based on justice and equity.
“Everything I do is about bringing peace and justice to society,” said Azizi, a Rancho Cucamonga litigation attorney, mediator and judge pro tem.
She has co-founded and served as president of the Upland Interfaith Council, which works in collaboration with University of La Verne, Interfaith Collaborative for Mental Health, Pomona Unified School District, and other groups in building better and stronger communities. Azizi was among 25 members of the Inland Valley Interfaith Network (IVIN), who attended the Parliament of World Religions in Salt Lake City in October 2015. The group shared a presentation about their community building work. The Upland Interfaith Council has also worked with the Upland Community Service Council, the Upland Police Department, and the Police Chief’s Clergy Council, to help the city’s homeless population. Upland Interfaith Council also holds annual events in collaboration with Upland community civic, business, secular institutions and religious leaders.
Azizi is co-founder of Women On The Move Network, a non-profit organization committed to improving the status of girls and women in our communities. She is heavily involved in the network’s youth development program titled “Who’s Your Hero” and “Junior Women On The Move,” serving girls ages 9 to 17. Through a series of partnerships with local colleges and universities, housing authorities, elementary schools and social service agencies, the after-school program has helped young girls build confidence, make good decisions and pursue healthy pastimes. In addition to conferences for young girls and women, monthly workshops at Azizi’s Rancho Cucamonga law office feature speakers on gender equality issues such as domestic violence, parenting and human trafficking. “We are networking in a sense of empowering each other by discussing issues that relate to women,” Azizi said. “Women equality has been a core principle of my faith and personal beliefs,” Azizi added. Azizi, whose family came to the United
Now, Azizi is turning her attention to running for Superior Court Judge of San Bernardino County in the June primary and her platform revolves around collaboration between the community and the court system. As an advocate, Azizi has represented victims of violence, injury and neglect, since 1994, while acting as a temporary judge since 2008, she has presided over matters in
small claims courts, family law and San Bernardino county’s child support prosecutions. Additionally, as a court appointed Arbitrator, Azizi has helped resolve disputes among conflicted parties with fair and equitable rulings and awards. Acting as a private or court appointed Mediator, Azizi has helped thousands of parties reach amicable resolution to their disputes. “My mediation practice revolves around parties who wish to end their disputes out of court.” Said Azizi. “My role as a neutral facilitator is to empower the parties to find workable and lasting solutions, with a focus on preserving the integrity of the individuals, relationships and the process.” “Parties are often amazed at the variety of options available at Mediation, as well as the amount of control they have over the expenditure of costs, the length of time spent in Mediation, and the certainty of outcome, not to mention reduced anxiety and frustration often associated with court litigation.” said Azizi, who co-founded the non-profit California Arbitration and Mediation Services. Azizi has a firm stance against extremism and violent crimes and believes in due punishment according to the letter of law. Azizi is also supportive of innovative approaches to justice, sentencing and collaborative courts, for which California has been a leader. Such models, supported by hard evidence and statistics, uphold justice based on collaboration between the courts, law enforcement, mental health professionals, and the community as a whole. “Prevention and protection through strong bonds of partnership and collaboration of all stakeholders will help restore peace and justice in today’s society.” Azizi said.

HEALTH MATTERS Brought to you by San Antonio Regional Hospital
Keeping The Beat – Heart Disease Management Heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death in the United States for both men and women. Over 600,000 Americans die of heart disease each year—that’s one in every four deaths in the country. What exactly is heart disease and how do you know if you are at risk? The term “heart disease” is often used interchangeably with the term “cardiovascular disease.” The most common form of cardiovascular disease is coronary artery disease, a condition that involves narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead to a heart attack, chest pain (angina), or stroke. The condition is related to a process called atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis occurs when a substance called plaque builds up in the walls of the arteries. This buildup narrows the arteries, making it harder for blood to
flow freely. If a clot forms, it can stop the blood flow completely, which causes a heart attack or if the clot breaks apart, it can travel to the brain causing a stroke.
Other Types of Cardiovascular Disease There are other heart conditions that are also considered forms of heart disease and can affect your heart’s muscle, valves, or rhythm. These include:
Heart failure – Heart failure, sometimes called congestive heart failure, means the heart isn’t pumping blood as well as it should. The heart keeps pumping, but your body’s need for oxygen and blood isn’t being met. Arrhythmia – Arrhythmias are abnormal rhythms of the heart. There are various types, leading the heart to beat too slowly, too fast, or irregularly. An arrhythmia can af-
fect how well the heart works, and the heart may not be able to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs.
Heart valve problems – Heart valves can be compared to doors opening and closing to regulate the flow of blood through the different chambers of your heart. When valves don’t open enough to let blood flow through as it should, it’s called stenosis. When the valves don’t close properly and blood leaks through, it’s called regurgitation. And, when the valve leaflets bulge or prolapse back into the upper chamber, the condition is called mitral valve prolapse. What Puts You at Risk? Anyone, including children, can develop heart disease. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking are key risk factors for heart disease. About half of all Americans (47%) have at least one of these three risk factors. There are other medical conditions and lifestyle choices
Almost 50% of Americans have one of the three major risk factors for heart disease.
that put people at higher risk for heart disease. These include: • Diabetes • Obesity/overweight • Poor diet • Physical inactivity • Excessive alcohol use
Prevention Comes with Healthy Lifestyle Choices Many forms of heart disease can be prevented and even treated, by making better lifestyle choices. Experts recommend several steps to reduce your risk for heart disease. The advice is simple – don’t smoke, try to maintain a healthy weight throughout life, eat a healthy diet, reduce saturated fats, and try to exercise regularly.
Diagnosing Heart Disease Doctors have many tests available for diagnosing heart disease. These can include chest x-rays, coronary angiograms, electrocardiograms (ECG or EKG), echocardiograms, and exercise stress tests. To learn more about the various forms
of heart disease, how to reduce your risk, and the latest interventions physicians are using to manage these conditions, join us for our community lecture series:

Staying Ahead of MS and Other Disabling Conditions By Kathy SanMartino, PT, NCS, MSCS, ATP, CLT, Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare March is MS Awareness Month. It brings to mind the challenges that an individual living with a chronic condition can face on a day-to-day basis. My significant other is a paraplegic and a wheelchair user. Over the years, he and I have learned various lessons in making daily life less stressful. First and foremost, it’s important to realistically assess your needs. For example, do you require extra time to get yourself out of the house? You may also want to plan to arrive at your destination early. We find this especially important when going to a movie theater so we get to our seats before the lights are dimmed. Do you fatigue easily or move slower than before? You will need to be realistic as to how much you can accomplish in a day. Historically, I liked to fit a lot into a day of sightseeing when I traveled. I eventually learned that this wasn’t realistic or enjoyable when traveling with my significant other. I now like to focus on one or two sites and then spend the rest of the day relaxing and taking in the local culture. When you wake up in the morning, one of your first decisions is probably centered on your clothing choice for the day. We often choose our clothing based on activities
and temperature that we will be facing that day. The additional decision an individual with a disability might face is determining what equipment is required to get through the day. With some chronic conditions such as MS, there is a fluctuation of abilities from day to day and even throughout a given day. You may normally walk with a cane, but when faced with a busy day, it may be more appropriate to use a wheelchair or a walker. Remember, what’s important is that you make it through the day safely, without excessive fatigue and that you enjoy your day. What’s most important is that you maintain a sense of humor and flexibility when managing your disability. Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare offers a dedicated physician specializing in MS, as well as many groups for individuals with MS. There is great benefit in peer interaction. Contact with others with similar disabilities can help you maintain a perspective about your own impairments. You can often gain many pearls of wisdom as well. Also, consider physical or occupational therapy to provide you with exercises to be the best you can be – a licensed therapist can often help you problem solve through many of your challenges. Casa Colina will hold a free community seminar, “Staying Ahead of MS” on Tuesday, March 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. Refreshments will be served and seating is limited. To register, call (866) 724-4132.

Together we specialize in conducting Phase II - IV clinical studies for pharmaceutical companies seeking FDA approval for new drugs and medical devices. We have extensive experience working with many of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the industry. Clinical research is the process of testing the safety and efficacy of newly developed drugs. It
involves volunteers to participate in carefully conducted trials that are FDA approved. What most people donâ€™t know is that they can participate in a variety of different studies ranging from allergies, flu, insomnia, or acne to more chronic health conditions like arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, and diabetes. All medications currently prescribed today have once been in a clinical trial. It takes an average of 8 years for new medications to pass the FDA approval process and become available in pharmacies. If your current treatment isnâ€™t working, why wait? Gain access to the latest developments in medicine by participating in a clinical trial!
All volunteers will be given an Informed Consent that explains the study procedures, risks, and benefits. Dr. Paliwal is available to answer any questions, and carefully monitors all participants for treatment and safety throughout the course of the study. All study related products are provid-
ed at no cost to you. Compensation for participation is provided in all of our studies at Empire Clinical Research.

commit to being fit Now is the time to get ready for summer! We often forget how fast time flies and find that our procrastination leaves us with little to no time to achieve our health and fitness goals. A common scenario I run into is when a client walks into my gym wanting to get ready for a special occasion 2-3 weeks away. Their goal is to lose ten pounds or more or drop “at least” two dress sizes. The problem is, these are not safe or realistic goals to accomplish in such a short amount of time. When a client has the expectation of rapid weight loss and shaving inches quickly I don’t fault them. The fault lies in the excessive inadequate information marketed to the general public where you see claims of losing ten pounds or more in a few days or a week with no regard to the full health or circumstance of said client. This rapid weight loss gimmick is typically achieved by losing water weight that is often an unsustainable long term solution. The recommendation for healthy weight loss is 1 - 2 lbs per week on average. The reason being, it takes a deficit of 3500 calories to lose 1 pound of body weight. To lose 1 pound per
week you would have to reduce 500 calories per day to lose 1 pound per week. If you wanted to lose 2lbs per week you would double your daily caloric deficit to 1,000 calories per day. For example, a lady on a 1500 - 1800 calorie per day nutrition plan decides she would like to lose weight. To achieve her 1 pound a week goal, she would need to reduce her daily calories to 1000 - 1300 for a safe and realistic weight loss plan. If she wanted 2 lbs a week then she would need 500 - 800 calories per day. A safer method would be for her to raise her metabolic rate to allow her to intake more calories. To put things into perspective, for her to lose 3lbs a week, she could only eat 150 calories a day which would be very unhealthy and a negligent recommendation to say the least. This information is little known and part of the reason people are generally mislead. An important fact to learn is that individuals can raise their metabolic rate by doing a proper exercise program that includes weight bearing exercise. This can allow for a more sustainable balance of reduced calories and raised metabolic rate.

itamin-C’s role is skin lightening; it is not what you think or what you’ve been told. Allow me to clarify a common skin care myth. The myth is that Vitamin-C will lighten skin. Vitamin-C does not lighten skin. Vitamin-C is, however, one of the most powerful antioxidants you can apply topically to your skin, and has many benefits associated with skin lightening. Vitamin-C does impact hyper pigmentation (dark spots), but not by lightening them. Rather, it retards the skin’s ability to form new dark spots; it does not lighten dark spots that are already there. The daily use of a potent Vitamin-C elixir will interfere with your skin’s ability to make additional dark spots by retarding the melanin production responsible for darkening the skin. So if Vitamin-C does not lighten dark spots, what will? Medical studies show that Alpha Arbutin is the best and most potent form of natural skin lightener. Alpha Arbutin is a natural source of Hydroquinone. It is derived from natural sources of bearberry, mulberry, cranberry and white mulberry. Many skin care companies use Alpha Arbutin in their skin lightening products, but it is important to know the level of concentrations. Beautiful Radiant Skin Products use Alpha Arbuin in high concentrations, as the main ingredient in Luminous White Skin Bleaching Cream. Beautiful Radiant Skin Products go a step further, using no fillers and mixing (not diluting) the Alpha Arbutin with other highly active ingredients that make this product the most potent you can find. Beautiful Radiant Skin Products are mixed with Vitamin-B3,bellis perennis flower extract, palmitoyl oligopeptide, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, sage, ginseng and rosemary extracts and avocado oil for moisture. These products will lighten without drying and are scientifically based and proven. So how do you lighten and brighten your skin? Use your Vitamin-C elixir daily to help avoid forming new dark spots. To lighten the dark spots you already have, use a good potent Alpha Arbutin product at night under your nighttime moisturizer. Always use sun protection of SPF-30 or higher. It is especially important to use SPF when using any skin-lightening product, as the lightening agents will make your skin more sensitive to the sun and its damage.

The wellness team at RCMC Medical Weight Loss is there to guide you so you can take control of your life and get healthy.

For many years, the clinic has aided many patients to successfully lose weight, regain energy and keep the weight off. The clinics approach to wellness is truly transformative and the doctors and staff are excited to share their approach with you. “Being overweight is a medical condition, and we treat it as one,” says Dr. Richard Mantell. “Our patient chances of losing weight will be significantly higher using the program at RCMC Medical Weight Loss rather than doing it on their own.” “Losing weight is much more than just diet and exercise. It is simply overwhelming without guidance and direction,” adds Sariah Veirs, co-operator in the business. “Our program provides a private nutritional counselor to help keep our clients accountable for achieving their weight loss goals. Many patients have failed numerous times in their past dieting attempts, but are amazed when they find real success at RCMC Medical Weight Loss.” Dr. Mantell and his team can help you lose one pound a day for up to 45 days, and more importantly, keep it off. They start with determining the underlying problem for your weight gain. For many patients, eating healthy and exercising is not enough to take off the pounds. RCMC’s cutting-edge medical weight loss treatments include integrating HCG injections, lipo injections, appetite control medication and nutritional counseling. The medically prescribed injections protect your lean muscle mass while turning your body into a fat-burning machine. HCG is a part of

Most notable, nutrition counseling and lifestyle advice helps patients correct negative habits that may have led to their weight gain in the first place, so the pounds stay off for good. One of RCMC’s most popular programs is their 18-week fast track program. Their goal for patients is to lose 80 pounds in 18 weeks. One of their patients, Trisha, was amazed at her results from the program after losing 80 pounds. “ I have tried every diet out there, this was my last resort and then I was turning to surgery. I could not believe it when my first week I lost 13 pounds! They held my hand every week and made sure that I got to my goal weight! Thank you RCMC for giving me my life back!”
Another patient, Gladys, lost 50 pounds after only 14 weeks. She commented, “When I first came to RCMC I did not think that the results were real or that it would work for me. Every week I would be hitting my goals that my counselor set out for me. It kept me motivated and so excited to stay on course. This has changed my life and I could not thank RCMC enough!” RCMC’s wellness team provides nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice.

FOREVER THE HOME OF GOLFER
Sydnee Michaels Story by Matt Komoto
Sydnee Michaels is a professional golfer who has played on the Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour since 2012. Ever since she was a little girl she wanted to play on the LPGA tour, and now it’s a reality she continues to enjoy. Currently residing in San Diego, Michaels was born in Upland and grew up in Claremont. She does come back to Claremont when she can, but is usually quite busy.
sional. It’s a lot easier traveling now compared to when she was just a rookie. Not only does she know the places she likes to eat or stay, but she is now more familiar with the golf courses in different cities and countries. Her absolute favorite place to travel to is Turnberry, Scotland, and one of her favorite golf locations is the St Andrews Links. Michaels recommends The Old Course at St Andrews to anyone looking for a golf vacation.
“Tour life is kind of crazy,” said Michaels. “Life on tour goes by so fast. It really seems like yesterday I just got my (tour) card. It is very busy and the ‘off season’ seems so short, but being busy and working towards a goal is always a good thing. Plus, I am also putting on a charity tournament in April, and that is also keeping me very busy.”
Michaels first learned to play golf at Indian Hills Golf Course in Riverside. Her first tournament was also at Indian Hills, with her dad as one of the scorekeepers. Throughout the day she kept asking him if she was breaking 50, not knowing where she stood on the leaderboard. She ended up finishing in fourth place among a group of boys.
Michaels said she’s learned a lot traveling the world over the past four years, meeting new people and developing as a person and a profes-
With all the places she’s been, Michaels said if she could move to Claremont tomorrow, she would. Claremont will forever be her home.

Subaru Legacy Sedan RUNNING ON ALL FOURS
ine-o-nine residents live in a truly unique location, with the ocean, mountains, desert and entertainment meccas all within short driving distance. Add to that the reality of El Nino storms, commuter traffic and uneven fuel prices, and the need for a dependable all-weather vehicle is critical. One that gets exceptional mileage, holds five in comfort and is imbued with the latest in safety equipment would be ideal. Hold that thought, because the new Subaru Legacy sedan meets all those requirements and starts under $22,000. It’s no wonder that national surveys have listed Subaru as having some of the best quality ratings in the business and some of the most loyal vehicle owners. You may not find many Subarus
on the covers of automobile magazines, but you will find them in the driveways of people who appreciate such things as brake-based active torque-vectoring, high test crash scores and outstanding resale value. Mom’s view: This a surprising and spacious sedan compared to the competition. Indeed, we were so enamored by its ride, fuel consumption and usefulness that we kept it a few extra days. The trunk holds 15 cubic feet of bargains; there is an abundance of interior storage and a plethora of safety equipment. Our test vehicle had a rearview camera and a unique seat-mounted under-knee airbag that inflates in front collisions to keep front passengers in their seats. There was also the EyeSight option with cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and lane-departure warning. The interior seat material

was a bit clingy for me, but the dash layout and instrument panel were quite good. I liked the navigation and information systems with the controls located on the outside of the monitor. And, finally, there were real volume and tuning knobs to make it easy to adjust audio levels. The bottom line for me was a vehicle that was safe, family friendly and a bargain. A bit different, yes, but in a good way. Dad’s view: Subaru’s active-torque-split symmetrical AWD is the best in the business for family vehicles, allowing you to keep control in traction trying times. The steering is electric and provides good feedback and the brakes are above average. You can get a six-cylinder engine, but the four-cylinder engine, 175 horsepower 2.5i is all you are going to need unless towing or high-speed mountain passing is your forte. The base EPA mileage for the base engine is remarkable 26/36,
and we averaged 32 in mixed driving. Those are very noteworthy numbers, and the tank is large, too, making long trips without refueling possible. The ride can be bumpy over taxpayer money-deprived roads. The CV transmission takes a lot of the fun out of the Legacy, but also helps with its gas mileage. Subaru also has a manual mode that is especially helpful on hill descents. Overall, the Legacy is well worth the investment for those who need the all-wheel drive component and, perhaps, are listening to that different drummer. Young working womanâ€™s view: The Subaru is supposed to be dog friendly. The problem was when we went to the dealer in Ontario to have our dog pictured in the back of one they refused. Oh, well. The real reason for this review is to try and explain to readers why they should consider a Subaru over the more traditional choices such
as those from Ford and Honda. What makes that more difficult for me is that the newly designed Subaru is starting to look more like its competitors. So, it must be something else, and that is the all-wheel drive system and very competitive pricing. In essence, Subaru is giving you its sophisticated system without additional charge or even a penalty in gas mileage. If you travel where inclement weather prevails and family safety is a concern, then the choice is Subaru. If you enjoy a bit more performance, the WRX is a sure bet. Young unemployed maleâ€™s view: There are quite a few features on the Legacy, such as Bluetooth, two USB ports, HD Radio, a 6.2-inch monitor and smartphone integration. They work well, but if you want more, then you better opt for the 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and a voice-activated infotainment system. If the
2015 model is anything likes previous generations, it should get excellent safety scores. The EyeSightâ€™s option is amazing and is able to slow the vehicle and even stop it if another car is in the way. Great for commuting and it includes lane departure warnings, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alerts. The StarLink app offers current media information, from weather to stocks. I have owned a Subaru in the past and they are rugged and fun vehicles. I expect this modern model to continue that family tradition. Family conference: 909 Magazine readers who are looking for a bland commuter vehicle, look elsewhere. But if you treasure the ability to trudge outside the city, to challenge your sense of adventure and to still keep costs down, then the family-friendly Subaru Legacy is worth considering. Just make sure you get the EyeSight system.

High School Exchange Students in the Inland Empire United Cultural Exchange USA (UCEUS) is a student exchange program dedicated to bringing the youth of different nations and cultures together at a personal family level, forging bonds of friendship that will last a lifetime. UCEUS was founded with the belief that increasing understanding and tolerance between nations is a worthwhile endeavor, and UCEUS focuses on cultural exchanges for students of high school age in order to further that cause. Instead of following the course that many exchange programs do. UCEUS chooses to concentrate on high school students who will actually become a part of a community in the United States by living as a member of their host family: Eating meals, conversing, playing, and studying. In short, these students are immersed in a new way of life; joining into the culture and community of their host family. The UCEUS students who come to the United States to live and learn as part of one of our commu-
nities are the same people who may grow up to be the leaders of tomorrow. The UCEUS program has been developed with the expertise of people who believe in the value of cultural exchange and have many years of experience in the field of international student exchange. They believe in building a program of integrity that will be a shining example of what a student exchange program should be. UCEUS consists of a National Office located in Upland, California, Area Coordinators and many Community Representatives throughout the United States. Students on the UCEUS program are between the ages of 15 to 18 years of age. Independent organizations overseas are responsible for the recruitment and screening of the potential student candidates for the UCEUS programs. The American Host Families are recruited year-round. Before the new school year begins, UCEUS believes that it is important to find quali-
fied host families as early as possible so that correspondence can begin that much sooner between the host family and student. Experience has proven that this correspondence helps to eliminate many false expectations and to build friendship, trust and understanding. After the beginning of the new school year, UCEUS continues to recruit qualified host families should circumstances require the student to relocate.
at home. They are currently hosting students from China and Brazil and these students attend the local high school and college. They enjoy hosting students, finding it fulfilling, surprising and entertaining all at the same time....never a dull moment.
The UCEUS Program stresses family living as the heart of the learning experience - offering students from foreign lands the chance to share in other cultures through personal involvement in the homes, schools and communities of their host country. Erik & Shana Wentzell started United Cultural Exchange U.S.A. (UCE) 20 years ago. Coincedentally the same amount of time they have been hosting international students in their own home. They are parents of 6 kids, 2 boys, 4 girls of which only 2 are still living

education Summer is Coming… Mrs. Molle, Carden Arbor View
Every year as the weather warms up it becomes clear that summer is approaching. This presents parents with the ultimate summer question—what type of fun, engaging activities exist to fill their days? Classes that blur the line between academic skills and enrichment offerings would be perfect. Classes can be found that offer the basics, language arts and math at every grade level. It’s even better when classes for older students include algebra and geometry concepts, while younger students are learning to work with money or telling time. Language
arts classes excel when they include opportunities to write their own story, be a part of a book club, learn to debate, or even prepare for the SSAT. If your child is interested in language then an opportunity to take French lessons would be amazing. Or maybe they are excited by science. Classes in this category range from rocketry to robotics, or chemistry classes designed for older and younger scientists where they can create their own bubble gum, brew root beer, or see chemical reactions first hand. Exploring the world around us through geography classes is more appealing when that experience includes food from different continents and countries. When classes combine crafting, cooking, literary works and allow children to create through drawing, painting, beading and jewelry making, students will become well-rounded individuals. Also, classes like beginning ballet or cheerleading to Zumba improve their health while having fun. So, where can a family find all this
summer fun? The answer is here—Carden Arbor View School, where students from the Foothill communities are invited to join in for a Roaring Summer of adventure, fun, and learning. The summer program is designed for all children entering kindergarten through eighth grade in the fall, allowing students to build their day around a family’s busy schedule. The Roaring Summer program this year will be comprised of four two-week sessions of three periods each, students may elect to attend a single course or enjoy a full day of activities. Classes run Monday through Thursday with a special program available on Friday that offers unique one-day experiences. Friday activities provide two options, one for younger students with an all-day program that stays on campus and one for older children that enjoys activities off-campus. Summer should be an opportunity for a child to explore, try new tasks, and find new passions. If you would like more information please contact the school directly.

The successful VFW Chapter 12034 in La Verne is not just exclusive for residents or locals and has many members from outside cities.
Popular La Verne VFW Post 12034 Began 12 Years Ago
t was 12 years ago in March of 2004 that the Veterans of Foreign Wars Chapter 12034 Band of Brothers Post was just founded and was recruiting members in San Dimas during the city’s Pow Wow Day. Today the VFW post is located in La Verne at Veteran’s Hall off of Bonita Avenue and Wheeler, continuing the success it has enjoyed since it started. It was so successful, in fact, that the VFW National honored it with All-American post status when it began official operations in 2005. David Alvarado is the former commander and is now the chaplain, honor guard and color guard for this VFW. He said the post facility is smaller and may not have a bar where members congregate like at other VFWs, but the group has had no trouble thriving since 2005. “We don’t have a bar, so we’re not as attractive,” said Alvarado. 62

Story by Matt Komoto
“What I do like about this, the members that do join this post are not looking for a bar. They’re looking to do things for the community. That’s what’s helped us to have an honor guard team and a color guard team. There’s nothing in this for us except the gratitude of knowing that we’re giving to the community and we’re promoting Americanism.” More than 100 VFW Chapter 12034 Band of Brothers Post come from cities outside of La Verne. The La Verne Veterans’ Memorial located in front of the hall is enjoyed by many veterans from La Verne and beyond. New pavers can be purchased by anyone wishing to honor their departed military family at the site. On Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, 2016, at 11 a.m., the public is invited to join the many veterans and families who are accustomed to automatically attending the La Verne ceremony, which in the past has drawn as many as 1,500 people.

San Bernardino County adopts Prop 90 Proposition 90 is an initiative that enables homeowners 55 years or older to transfer the base year value of their principal residence in one county to a newly purchased residence in another county provided that certain requirements are met. Prop. 90 allows homeowners 55 years or older to move closer to family, medical services, lifestyle centers, downsize in an effort to reduce expenses, or to take advantage of recreational opportunities. Without Prop 90’s protection, these homeowners would have been locked-in to their previous residences due to the significant property tax increase incurred in moving. To qualify for the program, applicants and properties must meet certain requirements per the California Board of Equalization. These requirements have been provided below along with additional information from their site here. www.boe.ca.gov/proptaxes/faqs/propositions60_90.htm • The homeowner or a spouse residing with the homeowner must have been at least 55 years of age when the original property was sold. • The replacement property must be a principal residence and must be eligible for the homeowners’ exemption or disabled veterans’ exemption. • The replacement property must be of equal or lesser “current market value” than the original property. The “equal or lesser” test is applied to the entire replacement property, even if the owner of the original property purchases only a partial interest in the replacement property. Owners of two qualifying original properties may not combine the values of those properties in order to qualify for a Proposition 90 baseyear value transfer to a replacement property of greater value than the more valuable of the two original properties. • The replacement property must be purchased or built within two years (before or
after) of the sale of the original property. • To receive retroactive relief from the date of transfer, you must file your claim within three years following the purchase date or new construction completion date of the replacement property. • Your original property must have been eligible for the homeowners’ or disabled veterans’ exemption either at the time it was sold or within two years of the purchase or construction of the replacement property. • The replacement property must be purchased in a county that participates in the Proposition 90 program. The original property is subject to reappraisal at its current fair market value at the time of sale, unless the buyer(s) of the original property also qualifies the property as a replacement property for a base year value transfer due to disaster relief or a base year value transfer for a severely and permanently disabled person. Therefore, most transfers between parents and children will not qualify. This is a one-time only benefit. Once this tax relief has been filed and received, neither the primary homeowner nor the spouse who resided with the primary can ever file again – even upon death or divorce. The only exception is if a homeowner becomes disabled after receiving this tax relief for age. Only then may one transfer the base year value a second time. Currently, Alameda, El Dorado, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, San Mateo, Santa Clara and Ventura, and now San Bernardino County allow Proposition 90. Proposition 90 is a “local-option” law, meaning each county has the option of participating. If a county has adopted a Proposition 90 ordinance, it accepts transfers of property tax base assessments from other California counties. If the county that the homeowner is moving from does not have a Proposition 90 ordinance, this does not affect the eligibility of the homeowner.

Local Leaflet CLAREMONT Council Priorities for 2016 On Saturday, January 23, 2016 the Claremont City Council held its annual Priority Setting Workshop. The workshop is an opportunity for the Council, with input from staff and the community, to discuss priorities and goals for the coming year. The Council reviewed the progress made on last year’s priorities and action items planned for 2016. After discussion and comments from the audience, the City Council identified eight priorities for 2016. These priorities include: Economic Development, Financial Stability, Local Water Issues, Public Safety, Quality of life, Sustainability, Urban Forest Management, and Infrastructure/Transportation. The Infrastructure and Transportation Priority was added this year and includes improvements of the City’s streets, parks, systems, and transportation related projects. City staff will use these priorities to guide their projects and work in the next year. As these decisions are made, the City Council encourages residents to share their opinions. Information on the Council priorities and major projects can be found on the City’s website; www. ci.claremont.ca.us.

CORONA The City of Corona is excited to announce that our Library and Recreation Services Department has recently opened our new community center, the Circle City Center located at 365 N. Main Street. The Circle City Center has revitalized a 32,000 square-foot building to include a variety of features and recreational space that has been long anticipated by our community. A new gymnasium, teen game room, conference room for small business meetings, outdoor stage, and classrooms for dance, art, and fitness classes have made the center a hub of activity! The Circle City Center also features an event hall that can accommodate up to 600 people for weddings and special events, a banquet room that has a capacity of 250 for more intimate parties, and a game room with party packages available. I encourage everyone to stop by and visit the Circle City Center.

UPLAND Public safety has always been a tremendous source of pride for Upland, and we are fortunate once again to have dynamic leadership within our police and fire departments. In November, Paul Segalla was named chief of the Upland and Montclair Fire Departments, which unified in 2014. The former chief of the Chino Valley Independent Fire District, Paul brings 40 years of fire service to our communities. Earlier in 2015, Upland hired Brian Johnson, a 26-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department, as our new police chief. The two men bring veteran leadership and a commitment of community to their roles. In his nine months on the job, Chief Johnson has met with businesses and residents throughout the city to hear their needs and concerns, and begin reshaping the Upland Police Department’s strategic vision. Chief Segalla, too, has met with community stakeholders as he builds on the existing Upland/Montclair relationship and takes us further down the road of regionalization of fire services. Their interpersonal and management styles are ideal for meeting the challenges that police and fire departments face today, and their arrival in Upland ensures that the safety and well-being of our community will remain our No. 1 priority.

WHY MATTRESS SALESMEN HATE THIS LOCAL VETERAN
100% MADE IN U.S.A.
By Rex Guttierrez
Paul Niederer is a Rancho Cucamonga resident and All-American veteran of the Air Force. He’s raising a lovely family and owns Cost Plus Mattress in La Verne, just a skip and a hop away. So why do other mattress salesmen hate this guy? Is it because he tries to sell exclusively Made in the USA products? Not really. He should be commended for that. Actually, it’s because he is brutally honest, and tells it like it is. This guy is downright refreshing, in our eyes. “Mattress salesmen are twenty times worse than any other salesman you’ll meet,” declares Paul. Now that’s why he’s hated by his peers. “Customers are being gouged at the other retailers,” Paul continues. Them’s fightin’ words to the mattress industry. Here’s some questions you can ask the mattress salesman when it’s time to look for a new mattress: 1. How much of a “hole” (or body impression) does there have to be in my mattress before it will be considered a structural defect? Answer: If you’re getting up from your bed and you leave an inch and a half to two inches, then you have a defective mattress. And good luck getting relief ! Most retailers will tell you to contact the manufacturer. It actually says in their warranty , “ The materials used in this mattress are designed to conform to your body and therefore body impression are not considered a structural defect.” With Cost Plus, just call Paul and he will come to you. The buck stops with him. Remember, the mattress salesman is trying to sell you on comfort, not construction of the bed. Most beds are made of convoluted egg crate foam. They don’t last very long, and the mattress retailers will do anything to get out of their warranty. After 8 or 10 years, those memory foam mattresses start losing their memory! 2. What if I purchase a bed and just don’t like it? Answer: Almost all places will charge you a re-stocking fee of 10 or 15%, or at least a couple hundred bucks. And they’ll force you to exchange the bed for another of equal or greater value. The mattress places force 66
you to buy another bed. You’ll never get your money back. Read the fine print in the contract. Paul has no fine print! Don’t get pushed around. Paul is so laid back he even invites you to walk out and go compare prices at the other stores. He knows you’ll come back because you can’t beat his fair prices. 3. How do I know that you’re delivering the same comfortable mattress that I tried out in the showroom? Answer: Make sure you write down the information from the label of the mattress you decide to buy. Some stores deliver a different style and that’s why it doesn’t feel the same. 4. What if I my mattress needs to be repaired or exchanged but it has a coffee stain or some other kind of stain on it? Answer: In all cases any stain will void your warranty. This is a common way mattress retailers get out of their warranties. Pretty sad. Coffee or water stains will not void Paul’s warranty. He treats his customers right. 5. When I need to replace my mattress, why does the salesman say that I need to replace the mattress and the foundation? Answer: Because he wants to rip you off ! Whether it’s a $300 or $3,000 mattress, mattresses are designed to last 3-5 to 4-7 years. But the foundation, however, should last at least 20 years. If you go to the store with a mattress problem after 7 years, it’s usually just the mattress at issue. Don’t let them sucker you into paying big bucks for a mattress and a foundation. The salesman typically says that if you don’t buy a mattress with foundation, you won’t get the warranty. Remember, most mattresses will not last to the warranty date, so these mattress retailers will look for a way to void the warranty or pocket extra money. Paul loves what he does and he could never support a family by ripping people off. You are safe with him! 6. How can I resist the 50% off sales at the mattress showrooms? Answer: What a crock! Paul has the good old-fashioned two-sided queen mattresses starting at $599, including foundation and frame, guaranteed for 10 years. You simply
flip the mattress, like rotating the tire on
your car to make it last longer. The mattress industry has sold the public on one-sided mattresses that need replacing after 8 or
10 years. It truly is a 50% off sale because
they’re only selling you 50% of a bed! Paul’s
two-sided mattresses will last twice as long as a one-sided mattress, for less money!
Don’t forget, construction is key. Don’t
buy a bed made with that convoluted egg
crate foam. You’ll be sorry. Paul carries the amazing Pure Latex Bliss mattresses that
keep you cool in the summer, as well as the traditional cotton button tufted mattress
from the old days. Paul also uses polyure-
thane foam mattresses but he uses solid pieces of foam, not convoluted ones. He doesn’t charge a lot for them because polyurethane
foam doesn’t cost that much. Go see Paul at Cost Plus Mattress, right off the 210 Free-
way at the Foothill exit in La Verne. It’s well worth the scenic drive. And don’t forget to tell him you read it in 909 Magazine!
