WORDS FROM THE PUBLISHER

A

nother month has gone by, and we are back with another issue. We have a lot to talk about this month. As you can see, our magazine has undergone a

serious makeover since the January issue. We have redesigned the entire publication to give it a more elegant appearance. We did this to give businesses along the Foothills a high end magazine in which to advertise. We have kept our popular community news pages and most of our feature sections. We really hope you like it. We would love to hear your comments. We would like to welcome the residents of La Verne and San Dimas. We would also like to very much thank the Mayor of La Verne, Don Kendrick, and the City Manager of San Dimas,

A wide selection of all of our wines are available for purchase online or at the winery. Wine Tasting Available Daily Monday-Saturday 9am – 5pm Sunday 10:30-5

Blaine Michaelis, for joining us and taking the time to write a monthly informative column for the residents of their two cities. We have some very good advertising offers for businesses in La Verne and San Dimas and we encourage those businesses to contact us to see what we have to offer. Although we have gone to a high end look, we have kept our pricing reasonable to allow more businesses to reach their potential customers. All businesses in the cities we serve that like, or have thought of running “Groupon-like” deals

Tours are available Sundays between 2pm – 4pm.

should check out the information on page 46-47 of this issue. We do not take a percentage of your sales, only a small one-time fee for running your deal, and this small fee includes listing your deal in the magazine and sending it out to 60,000 homes. Businesses get to keep all of the money from their sales, which go straight to your bank account, not ours. Residents wanting to take advantage of local 50% off offers should go to our website and register to receive our deals by email. There is no cost to register or receive the deals, only when you decide to make a purchase. If you have an event you would like published in the magazine, please go to our website and list your event there. We have set up a page so everyone can list their own events. Once you list your event, we will approve it and list it in the magazine. Your event will be mailed to 60,000 homes. We ask that you to send your comments about the magazine to us for possible publication. This is your magazine, and we would like to know what you’re thinking. If there are certain things you would like us to cover, let us know. If you have an idea for a monthly feature, let us know.

Until next time,

Kathleen Sanchez Publisher

SAN DIMAS

Blaine Michaelis - City Manager

2013 has passed. We have a tendency to reflect over the events, activities, and challenges of the past year. From an overall community perspective, some good things have happened last year. We are seeing some more development activity, new businesses, and this next year some additional residential and retail projects will be completed. We have enjoyed several community events and activities that are always the result of volunteers stepping forward and taking care of the details of things like Farmers Markets, Veterans Memorials, Music in the Park, Western Days, Rodeo, Races, Art Shows, Car Shows, and youth sports. We are grateful for the

contributions of so many that make these activities possible – they add to our community quality of life. From a city perspective, I extend appreciation to our employees that play such an important and effective role in coordinating so many wonderful activities and events. For the daily work they do at city hall and in the parks and streets throughout the city to make San Dimas a great place to live. Thank you San Dimas employees. As you start the New Year; please accept our best wishes to you and yours. We hope everyone has a prosperous 2014. Contact city hall with any questions 909-394-6200 and visit our website for city information.

San Dimas Canyon Dog Park Closed During January

The San Dimas Canyon Dog Park will be closed for maintenance this month. January is the annual maintenance month where the one acre park closes to allow turf to regrow and trimming and washing to be done. It is a well-kept park in a nice location under the foothills; just one of the reasons for the park’s popularity with dog owners from here and other cities. Originally the park was mostly strawber909 MAGAZINE 12 12909 MAGAZINE

ry fields and Christmas trees. The area was dedicated as Horsethief Canyon Park in 1999, and in 2005 the dog park was created. “We had some interest in the community in building a dog park,” said Facilities Manager Karon De Leon. “The whole park Horsethief Canyon Park was only dedicated in 1999. At that time we did phase 1 which was mostly cleaning along with a few amenities; the bathrooms. Phase 2 included soc-

cer fields. From there Caryol approached us and said ‘What about a dog park?’” Caryol Smith is with Friends and Family for the dog park. Recently she noted that they have dog owners from 49 cities. One dog owner from Victorville visits weekly with her three big dogs before she has lunch at Kosmos. “Dog owners pass other dog parks to come here,” said Smith. “This is really a superior dog park. The maintenance really helps because they take such good care of it, but also the spay and neutering requirement makes this a safer park.” Smith said that un-neutered dogs bring tension to the park, and the other dogs can sense them. Two of the parks requirements before bringing your four-legged friend are that they must have their current dog license tags and it must be visibly worn on their collar. The other requirement is that dogs must be spayed or neutered. Glendora and West Covina are the only other parks in the area with this requirement. The dog park is especially popular with many San Dimas residents on Fridays and during nighttime. One night Smith counted 43 dogs on one side.


6th Annual Jackie Bristow Memorial 5K Fundraiser

San Dimas Wine Shop

• Wine Sales • Wine Tasting • Special Events On January 11th the Jackie Bristow Memorial Foundation will have their 6th annual Jackie Bristow Memorial 5k fundraiser. The non-profit foundation is in memory of Jackie Bristow who died on January 1, 2008 from a cardiac arrest resulting from bulimic disorders. It is run by her family with the goal of raising awareness for eating disorders through speeches and seminars. For those who are unaware of the story, Jackie Bristow attended Holy Name of Mary with her family since she was in the sixth grade. She graduated from St. Lucy’s and went to UC Riverside on a Regents scholarship, but dropped out because of eating disorder complications. These disorders may have started for Jackie around 2005 when she was 17. Joan Bristow is Jackie’s mother and Wednesday-Vail is Jackie’s twin sister. They usually do four main speeches a year and cover a few different topics for eating disorders. “We usually highlight the warning signs because my daughter had it for 2-3 years and I didn’t know,” said Joan. “It’s very secretive and very easy to hide for

the girls because they’re very ashamed of it but at the same time they’re very protective of it. What we try to do is put it out there what to watch for, and the kind of things that could trigger it because there’s not just one thing that does. The dieting, the media’s [portrayal] of women and how they view women’s bodies. We try to show how to give girls higher self-esteem, and boys too. A lot of young men are diagnosed with eating disorders now.” For 2013, things were put on hold for a bit as Joan was diagnosed with cancer. She still spoke at the San Dimas Rotary Club and at the Monrovia Rotary Club. They also spoke at the National Charity League in Whittier. For 2014, goals include a coaching seminar, a teacher’s seminar and more parent seminars. In sports, many girls can be using exercise as an eating disorder which can also be known as exercise bulimia. “Celebrate Every Body” with a healthy 5k this January with the 600-700 other participants. More information can be seen in the Calendar of Events Section in this issue.

Our mission is to make your wine experience entertaining, affordable and very relaxing.

LA VERNE League of American Bicyclists Honors the University of La Verne

Don Kemdrick— Mayor

HAPPY NEW YEAR Happy New Year from the City of La Verne. We are pleased to share news about the City, including all of the exciting projects taking shape in 2014, including the following: La Verne Village, Hutton Development’s 172 resort quality apartments and 15,000 square feet of commercial retail at the former auto dealership on Foothill Boulevard is expected to be completed by February. The Olson Development of 66 single family homes at Oak Grove Walk, behind Edwards Theater, is expected to be completed by summer. The 17-home residential project under construction at the north end of Esperanza Drive, the Live Oak Estates, is currently under construction by Melia Homes with the anticipated completion by the end of 2014. The Estates at Old Wheeler Road has a new developer, D.R. Horton, who is expected to begin construction on the remaining 16 single family homes by March of 2014. The University of La Verne is expected to complete their new athletic facility, Campus West, on Wheeler Avenue, south of Arrow Highway. We look forward to all the new growth and opportunities in La Verne in 2014. 14

These days the University of La Verne is riding high thanks to national recognition it recently received lauding its commitment to a popular form of alternative transportation. The League of American Bicyclists (LAB) presented La Verne with its Bicycle Friendly University Silver award, an honor recognizing the institution for making riding safer and more convenient on campus. “As our Bicycle Friendly University program grows, the promise for a more Bicycle Friendly America does, too. Colleges and universities propel our leaders of the future, and more and more of those students are choosing bicycles as their transportation option of choice,” said LAB President Andy Clarke. “We commend universities, like the University of La Verne, who are leading the way to a healthier, more sustainable future.” With an eye toward both social responsibility and campus safety, the University has long supported bicycle use by students, faculty, staff and visitors.

Earning the Bicycle Friendly University Silver award is a direct result of Director of Campus Safety Skipworth working hard and managing expectations. “We were thinking we might get an honorable mention,” said Skipworth, who credits Transportation & Parking Services Coordinator Lisa Grater as being instrumental in La Verne receiving the Silver award. “I had a really modest approach to that because it was the first time that we had ever applied for that here. But I really believed in what we were doing. When we got notice that they had selected us for silver, that was just a wonderful announcement for us, to join an awful lot of prominent universities and colleges across the country that worked very hard to get their programs up and going.” To date, LAB has recognized 75 Bicycle-Friendly Universities in 32 states and Washington, D.C. Many institutions now use the ratings to benchmark their progress toward improving their bicycle friendliness.


Youth & Family Action Committee to Offer Drug Education Classes for Parents The Youth and Family Action Committee, in conjunction with the La Verne Police Department, will be hosting a drug education class aimed at parents of middle school and high school age children. This is one of many programs sponsored by the La Verne Youth and Family Action Committee. The Committee is the focal point for citizen participation in La Verne’s community oriented policing program fighting against drug and alcohol abuse, gang activity and other destructive behaviors. The committee is open to all interested citizens and organizations. Meetings are conducted year-round on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers. The class will be a powerful presentation conducted by agents of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), La Verne Police Detectives, and narcotics task force officers. The class will include information on current drug trends such as Prescription Drugs, Designer Drugs (Bath Salts

and Synthetic Marijuana), Methamphetamines, and Marijuana. It will educate parents on what symptoms to look for if they suspect a child is using drugs as well as what type of paraphernalia a parent can expect to find. Information will also be provided on how and where parents can get assistance and find resources to aid in any situation. The class will be free to any parent wishing to attend. The Youth and Family Action Committee will provide refreshments. The class will be held on March 4, 2014, at 6:30 p.m. in the City of La Verne Community Center located at 3680 “D.” St. Parents are encouraged to attend this program and educate themselves on what is currently happening with drugs and school age children. There will be an opportunity for parents to ask questions of the presenters and to see some of the actual narcotics on display. For more information and questions, please contact Captain Paz at 909-596-1913.

CLAREMONT The City Council held a town hall on November 6, 2013 to share information on a potential acquisition of the Claremont water system. The meeting came after two years of analysis by the City’s team of experts in the water industry. Following an hour-long presentation on the legal, financial, and operational impacts of acquiring the system, the City Council voted unanimously to take steps to acquire the system.

Tony Ramos — City Manager

“At the City Council’s direction, we will work with our legal counsel to prepare the financial, environmental, and other legal documents necessary for the City to pursue acquisition of the water system,” said City Manager Tony Ramos. “We anticipate this

process will be completed over the next several months, at which time the documents will be available for public comment as well as potential action by the City Council.” Over 350 residents attended the meeting at Taylor Hall and more than 240 participated through the City’s live webcast. A variety of topics were discussed, including how for-profit utilities regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission differ from municipal water systems. Experts provided detailed analyses on issues such as water supply and reliability, financing, operations, and how rates are established under both types of water systems.

Village Marketing Group Plans Stage for Shelton Park

Claremont’s Shelton Park has had large and small involvements in many Village events throughout the year. The small park has been around since 1997, but now it will start playing a larger role in the city’s recreation as a venue for community performances. Located near the Village, there are now approved plans by the Village Marketing Group to build a stage where there can be a variety of shows. “We see this stage as a small, intimate venue fitting into the scope of the already 16 909 MAGAZINE 16 909 MAGAZINE

rich venues within the city of Claremont and hosting such events as Friday night live. Friday Night Live is already a staple event at The Depot and the Village Plaza West. We have events for children such as puppet shows and art and music events are designed specifically for that age group. The Claremont Colleges even have events, such as recitals and/or art programs, thesis and doctoral presentations and the like,” said Village Marketing Group Representative Diana Miller.

The Village Marketing Group’s planning for the Shelton Park stage began in January of last year. As of last June the city council and other committees had approved their plans. Now, the Village Group needs to get to work and raise $100,000 for the new stage. As of late November they had already raised $80,000. They currently have plans for more fundraising in the near future. One of their great fundraising ideas is to sell engraved bricks that will be a part of the new stage when it is built. This will not only be a great way to commemorate the great people who donate, but it will also show how much the community of Claremont really comes together to find new and better ways to improve their city and take care of its people. Once the $100,000 is raised and the architectural drawings have been completed, the city will then put the stage out to bid for construction. Paul Wheeler is the architect who is designing the stage. It will be designed with small venues in mind and hopefully inspire young artists to take advantage of place to play or sing. Although it is unclear just how long more fund raising, planning and the construction will take, Miller hopes for completion of the new stage by fall 2014.


Be Perfect Foundation Helps People With Spinal Cord Injuries Most spinal cord injuries are from the ages 16-30 and are 80 percent male. Hal Halgrave Jr., the founder of the Be Perfect Foundation, wasn’t injured doing extreme sports. Hal was a Claremont High School graduate that was driving a truck delivering construction materials when he swerved to avoid debris. The truck flipped and when the cab collapsed, it fractured his first and second thoracic vertebrae. Doctors said he had little chance of regaining any function below his neck level and shoulders, and even slimmer chance of walking. That was six and a half years ago. Hal has regained motion in his upper extremities and credits the pursuance of spinal cord therapy. “Whether it is for my emotional and mental stability, or my physical prowess just getting back, the facility and training have been great,” said Hal. “I can do things on my own I certainly wouldn’t be able to do had I just been sitting at home doing nothing.” Casa Colina, where he recovered after the accident, gave him much needed information and a great start to his recovery efforts. A few of the doctors at Casa Colina have continued to support Hal as endorsers, and continue to support the Be Perfect Foundation with

donations. They were pretty important at first and a few doctors have even become friends with Hal. Hal decided to form the Be Perfect Foundation shortly after his accident to help other people with spinal cord injuries to cover the therapy cost. Spinal cord injury treatment can cost $100 or more per hour. He called his foundation “Be Perfect” after his favorite quote and message from the 2004 football movie Friday Night Lights. The foundation sponsors clients with spinal cord injury therapy since it is not covered by insurance. The Be Perfect Foundation and Project Walk are currently helping 100 clients. Project Walk is the facility at the south of the Claremont Club that helps these clients. Because of Hal Halgrave Jr.’s efforts and his communication with Claremont Club CEO Mike Alpert, there is now a location in Claremont as of last February. They currently sponsor fully or partially all of their clients, and are always looking to be able to help more people. In 2014, aside from extending the existing facility, they will begin helping people with other debilitating modalities. Alpert, who is also the director for the Claremont Project Walk, will look into a possible site for Long Beach with the goal of treating returning veterans.

UPLAND New Service Offers Citizen’s Ability to Track and Report Crime

Steven Dunn Upland City Manager

SUSTAINABILITY PLAN UPDATE In October 2008, the City adopted the Claremont Sustainability Plan. The City Sustainability Committee is in the process of updating the plan and is seeking the support and assistance from the community. This innovative plan was designed to implement the sustainability goals of the City’s General Plan. The Sustainability Plan guides the City and community’s efforts to conserve resources, reduce environmental degradation, address climate change, and improve the health and well-being of the entire community. Since its adoption, many of the target goals contained in the plan have been completed, while other goals need to be re-evaluated. City staff and the City Sustainability Committee have been reviewing the plan to identify new goals, tasks and programs. The committee’s suggestions for an amended plan will be considered by the City Council on Tuesday, September 24, 2013. To participate in the Sustainability Plan updates please contact Senior Planner Chris Veirs at cveirs@ci.claremont.ca.us or (909) 399-5486.

The Upland Police Department began using a service in September called RAIDS Online to post crimes for the public to see. Created by BAIR Analytics, the service was given at no charge to the City of Upland. Currently Upland and San Dimas are the only two police departments locally in the county to use the RAIDS Online software. This program benefits the public in many ways. From people wanting to know about crime rates to allowing communication to city residents who want to submit tips, RAIDS Online offers good public service tools. “A couple of benefits from it are we get a lot of phone calls from people who ask about certain locations because they want to move into the city,” said Lieutenant Anthony Yoakum. “We can refer them to the software and they can pull it up and search for themselves what’s been going on in the neighborhood so they can make up their minds if they want to move in or not.” Upland residents for instance can see crime data from non-violent to vi-

olent crimes reported in the city. Exact addresses are slightly changed for the protection of the victims. Everything is listed on a map similar to a Google or MapQuest maps and charts can be viewed. Another service is that sexual offenders in Upland can be viewed with their photo, name, age, offender ID, offense and their exact addresses. Yoakum said that RAIDS Online also allows people to sign up to submit tips. Things that may be going on in their neighborhoods can now be more conveniently and directly sent to the police. “We just wanted to use technology as much as we can to partner with the community and get their help as much as we can,” said Yoakum. This new program can be used online and there is even a phone app that can be used as well. With so many people becoming more technology savvy, this program is very convenient and tips or information can be sent anonymously. As always, the safety of the residents of Upland is the UPD’s number one priority.


Many Make New Year’s Resolutions to Get in Shape New Year’s resolutions can be overwhelming for some people as they can easily include a dozen goals. The best thing to do is to just aim for one resolution. This is not news as articles and blogs before have stressed to just do one thing at a time. Whether it’s the fact that the prefrontal cortex only adapts to so much change in a short amount of time, or daily obligations interfering with goals, meeting a goal requires daily efforts that need to start small. One goal that is popular with some Upland residents is fitness. As Tammi Johnson told us, “I need to get into shape. There is no better time to start than January 1st.” There are many ways to go about accomplishing getting into shape; some people will do well with the gym, some people find success with at home programs like the P90X, and some people do everything under the sun. This article will focus on introducing gym training. In Upland especially there is no shortage of gyms. Ten of these corporate and private fitness facilities are actually packed in just a two square-mile area of each other. Take it one step at a time, the first thing is to find a gym. If you are already a member of a gym, then it’s finding a

trainer to hold accountability for your goals. Beginners to training who want to meet specific results will need trainers. Trainers can provide structured training, good health tips and extra encouragement. Good trainers should also be able to recognize plateaus and prevent overtraining. As far as budget goes, trainers can get costly if they’re used more than a few times a week. Gym classes are usually free, but again people with specific goals may need specific training to reach those goals. Working out can be done solo once routines are established based on what works. Even after a goal is accomplished, working out has to continue if you want to stay fit. If the workout routine stops, then you lose everything you’ve accomplished. Gym time should be routine 3-4 times a week. Keep in mind that it takes time. Don’t expect unrealistic goals, like being fit in a month’s time, to be accomplished. This will only set you up for failure. In the end, as we said, there are many ways to achieve fitness. For the gym, it is learning one exercise at a time, one routine at a time, and achieving one goal at a time. Good luck and as with everything else, make sure to indulge with moderation.

Coming Root 66 Garden Needs Water Source

The plans have been approved for the Root 66 Garden. However, they need one particular thing; water. Right now they are watering manually but need a water pump system to efficiently run the Root 66 Garden plots and vineyards. An ideal system may cost $100,000. At its bare minimum, a pump system from the well will cost $25,000 just to get things started. There are 15 acres of land. Most of it will be for vegetable beds. There are 2-3 acres that are set aside for vineyards. 20 909 MAGAZINE 20 909 MAGAZINE

“This garden will be operating in some form or another in 2014,” said Root 66 Garden Founder Dr. Dee Matreyek. “There will be plots available for people to have in 2014. I’m going to make that commitment.” They are waiting for the pump to be installed before plots can be sold for vegetable beds. In the meantime, they have already transplanted some rescued vineyards from around the city of Rancho Cucamonga. More are to be transplanted

soon. “The grapevines are good to transplant in the winter when they’ve gone dormant and the weather’s better,” said Matreyek. “We’ll probably start transplanting maybe in the beginning part of the year once we get the pump going.” Matreyek is still deciding on ways that would be good for additional fundraising. The Rancho Cucamonga Rotary Club is involved and making donations. There are a few other organizations that may be interested in also providing donations. The Root 66 community Garden wants to find new ways of bringing healthy food options to low-income households, seniors, local food banks and the community through Farmers Markets. The garden will be open to the public to buy plots and grow fresh fruits and vegetables to take home and enjoy with their families. They also want to take the time to educate about nutrition and responsible land use by respecting the environment. San Bernardino County has the worst access to healthy food options in California. By bringing in more opportunities to have healthy food options, there is a better chance of creating a healthier community


Rancho’s Chris Hawkins Had a Good First Year at USC

R

ancho Cucamonga’s Chris Hawkins graduated early almost a year ago from Rancho Cucamonga High School to attend the University of Southern California (USC). He got a full scholarship from USC around this time last year. An opportunity he could not pass up. The former star cornerback has adjusted well to college life. He has finished 25 credits while majoring in public policy development before he even became a true freshman. College campus life has been great to him and he continues to meet new people through classes and around campus on a daily basis. Football and lifting weights only take up so much time and he has gotten to acclimate a bit with USC’s other sports and athletes. Hawkins was able to be a part of the 2013 season where USC football began showing more worthy conquests again. USC recently upset Stanford and had great momentum going against the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The Trojans and Interim Head Coach Ed Orgeron at the time were very well praised. However, that momentum faded during their game against UCLA. While the Trojans just did not play well, Coach Orgeron was very proud of their accomplishments during this season. “I love coach O,” said Hawkins. “He had turned the program around to the fullest

affect. He has made us want to play football again. The difference that coach O has brought to the table is fun. He is letting us play fun football while also getting the job done. He isn’t always riding us hard but he knows when he has to turn it up to the next level. We as a team respond very well to him.” Although Hawkins just started as a member of USC’s football team this year, he has many goals for 2014. These include going into spring training as the best cornerback on the team and leaving as the starting cornerback, all while maintaining his 3.0 GPA. Hawkins is proud that USC’s secondary made huge improvements during the season. “We were the weak link of the team coming into the season,” said Hawkins. “Now it seems like we are a big part of some of the wins we have had. We came a long way and we have had a good reputation for locking down receivers who are supposed to be stars.” Hawkins looks to be a good contributing member for the 2014 season. The hopes of all the USC football players is to start the season right with head coach Steve Sarkisian. While there will be an adjustment to get used to Sarkisian’s methods, the USC football team is ready. Whatever next year has in store for the Trojans, they are looking to fight on with one member from Rancho Cucamonga shutting down receivers.

One avenue available to these young volunteers is the city of Rancho Cucamonga’s TRAC (Teen Recreation Activity Club) program for 6th to 12th graders.

rected by Jo Ann Gwynn, Community Services Supervisor for Youth and Family Programs. Michelle Dazalla, Community Services Coordinator, Laini Andrade, Program Specialist and additional staff members, Melissa Otine, Rance Hughes and Sabrina Marquez collaborate to locate the organizations and projects for volunteer opportunities. In addition, the TRAC staff continuously brainstorms to find other activities that will enrich the youthful volunteers. Opportunities to volunteer range from helping at an emergency shelter, bagging

food at a food bank, visiting a senior retirement home, helping at community events and making dinner at Ronald McDonald House, for its resident families. I Care Shelter Home in Riverside was the recent recipient of TRAC’s help on January10. The teens cleaned, raked leaves, pulled weeds and other things to beautify the grounds and children’s playground. The teens enjoyed helping at the shelter so much that they unanimously decided to volunteer at the shelter once a month. Recently the volunteers were involved in the Free-

dom Courtyard dedication ceremony on January 12 in Rancho Cucamonga. Jayson Liggins, who is 14-years-old and attends Alta Loma High School was one of the volunteers who arrived at 6 a.m. to help out at the dedication ceremony. “I enjoy volunteering because it brings joy to me knowing that each and every time I go out into my community, I am making a big difference,” Liggins said. “I enjoy volunteering no matter what event it is.” On January 24, six TRAC members along with four others from the Teen Cen-


ter volunteered at the GAP (God Always Provides) food bank. They helped to bag food items for distribution to families in need. GAP provides basic food items to approximately 450 families, consisting of an estimated 1,200 individuals, per week. In addition to everything they do, they also baked sugarless cookies and made handmade cards on February 13 in preparation for Valentine’s Day when they visited the residents of Altria Del Rey, a retirement and assisted living community. The cookies and cards were distributed to the residents and the teens took time to visit with them. On March 6 the teens traveled to Ronald McDonald House in Loma Linda to prepare dinner for the resident families. The students do not even take time off from volunteering during summer break from school. Summer months are spent volunteering at the youth camps for ages 5 to 12 years. These camps include sports camps and sports clinics at Alta Loma High School. TRAC staff personnel are supervising the program plan to make TRAC more teen based. They hope to implement a leadership training program soon in order to develop teen leaders. With guidance from the TRAC staff the students will plan the activities and take a more active role in planning and implementing the volunteer opportunities. The staff’s hope is for the students to develop leadership skills, administrative experience and provide the real life hands-on experiences that will benefit the TRAC members’ future educational and career goals. The teens, who absolutely love what they do in the community, commented that the volunteer opportunities are rewarding and they feel humble to be able to aid others in need. They have learned much, and they have given back much. The TRAC program is located at Lions West Community Center, 9161 Base Line Road.

ow much do you know about Entertainment and Intellectual Property Laws?

If you are an artist, a chef, a song writer or composer, a technology pioneer, a business owner, an author, a designer or an inventor, your artistic work, business name, plan, or creation may be an intellectual property deserving protection. Intellectual Property laws in areas of trademarks, service marks, copyrights, trade secrets, trade dress, and patents can protect your work from theft and piracy. The subject matter can be a symbol, sound, fragrance, color, an ornamental aspect of design or packaging such as a container or label, or an artistic or literary work, music, choreography, architectural work, or invention of a novel idea. Many individuals and businesses do not know or appreciate the value of their Intellectual Property because it is often not a physical or tangible piece of asset or equipment they can touch or hold in their hands. However, without proper licensing, registration, and/ or patent process, the rightful owners can face substantial financial and emotional loss fighting piracy issues, not to mention irreparable harm and damage to reputation and goodwill of their intellectual property. So, before you publish, take steps to absolutely protect yourself and all of your literary work. Post your artistic work on the internet, send a sealed copy to yourself and never open it, market any logos, goods and services which may be defined as intellectual property, and seek professional legal advice from the professionals who can discuss the very broad spectrum of issues in this sophisticated area of the law. __________________________________ The Law Talk column is intended to provide free and general legal information to all 909 Readers.

Everything is so convenient, there are lots of parks close by to take the baby and our dog Jameson. Our view of the local mountains is beautiful. We are still close enough to the beach, Mountains, and Desert for weekend getaways. 909: Are you involved with your community? If so, how? Both: Yes. We attend local events to support the community. We adopted Jameson from the Rancho Cucamonga Animal Shelter in 2010. Mike has been active in community sports and donates blood to the Red Cross often.

It wasn’t exactly love at first sight; since we didn’t really start dating seriously until our late 20’s. 909: What made you fall in love with her? Mike: Honestly, at first, it was the way she looked in her High school Cheerleading uniform! After becoming closer, it was her passion for travel and her ambition that really got me.

909: What do you guys like to do together? Both: Spend time with family and friends. We eat out often, and love to travel and take family vacations.

Mike: She is too serious, at times, and worries too much. 909: Tell us one thing your husband does that annoys you? Lauren: Just one? Ha-ha.

LET’S TALK WINE

G

BY GINO L. FILIPPI

reetings wine enthusiasts! Our valley’s celebrated viticulture history is as complex as the old Mission, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Zinfandel grapevines that dominated the landscape for more than 150 years. From the rocky foothill terraces, to the warm sandy valley floor, Cucamonga’s terroir once provided natural springs, ideal drainage and growing conditions for Old World varieties. Today I bring you the real “juice” from two local vintners, Dennis and Regina “Gina” Michael of Rancho Cucamonga, who have embraced the passion of the grape by planting a small vineyard at their home on a sunny southwest facing slope on Cucamonga’s Red Hill. For the Michael family, there is great enthusiasm for the winemaking process - from vine to bottle. In fact, their love of the vine is so grand they purchased the home adjacent to theirs a few years ago to fulfill a longtime dream. “We have always wanted to have our own vineyard, so the opportunity presented itself when we landscaped the new residence,” said Michael. Their home vineyard includes Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec vines. The City of Rancho Cucamonga provides guidelines regarding vineyards in residential and business parkway landscaping. Michael was born and raised in Rancho Cucamonga, growing up on a citrus ranch adjacent to a vineyard. “The nostalgia of that lifestyle will never be forgotten,” said Michael. “The vineyard allows us rekindle that lifestyle in a small way. We truly enjoy working the vineyard and we harvested our first year of grapes last Fall. As Mayor for the City of Rancho Cucamonga, it is especially rewarding to have planted a vineyard in keeping with our City’s heritage and help preserve a little bit of our past.”

Romance in Wine Country Where to Sip and Stay in Napa Wine Country

orthern California Wine Country in Napa Valley and Sonoma County -- a glorious drive an hour or so north of San Francisco -- have long drawn honeymooners, gourmets, wine-lovers, and and other romantics who want to savor the good life. There’s so much to see and do in California Wine Country, and so many exquisite places to stay in this part of California, that you may initially feel overwhelmed by the surfeit of Wine Country choices. Don’t let that deter you -- this is one destination northern California worth investigating -- and taking your time to do so. One more thing before you hit the road: To raise your level of wine expertise and add to the enjoyment of your Wine Country trip, I suggest you pick up a copy of California Wines for Dummies. Birthplace of the California wine industry, 17-mile-long Sonoma Valley sits between two mountain ranges and is home to dozens of wineries where tastings and tours are held daily. Sonoma’s town square is the Plaza, surrounded by historic adobe buildings, boutiques, and restaurants. Thanks to its hot springs, the area has drawn health-conscious visitors for more than a century. Today it includes several world-class resorts and spas. Napa Valley, which consists of six towns (Calistoga, St. Helena, Ruth-

erford, Oakville, Yountville, and the city of Napa), similarly boasts firstclass wine producers, restaurants, resorts, spas, and Wine Country scenery. Visiting Northern California Wineries Imagine a sun-dappled day outdoors. The two of you are at a winery, overlooking acres of grapes bursting with flavor in the California warmth. You raise your sparkling glasses of wine, toasting your good fortune and your new love. It’s the California Wine Country experience -- and it’s a memory that lasts a lifetime. According to Napa Valley Online, “The majority of small, family-owned wineries give tours only by appointment. These are the wineries that can be the most interesting, and that will give you a chance to actually talk with the wine maker herself (or himself ). To visit these wineries, call in advance. While you may be able to set up an appointment the same day, or the next day if you’re spending the night in the valley, you’re better off phoning before you even come to the valley. In addition to offering totally great tours, tastings, and hosting special events, some large and small wineries make their premises available for outdoor garden weddings. Make sure you call to check with individual properties and/or wineries for availability and prices.

Know Your Different Kinds of Beer There are four main families of beer styles determined by the variety of yeast used in their brewing. Ale (top-fermenting yeasts) Ale yeasts ferment at warmer temperatures between 15°C and 20°C (60°F to 68°F), and occasionally as high as 24°C (75°F). Pure ale yeasts form a foam on the surface of the fermenting beer. Ales range in color from very pale to black opaque. Lager (bottomfermenting yeasts) Lager yeast tends to collect at the bottom of the fermenter. Lager is fermented at much lower temperatures, around 10°C (50°F). During the storing or “lagering” process, the beer mellows and flavors become smoother. The most famous is a light lager called Pilsner. Lagers can range from very light to deep black, just like ales. Beers of Spontaneous Fermentation (wild yeasts) These beers are nowadays primarily only brewed around Brussels, Belgium. They are fermented by means of wild yeast strains that live in a part of the Zenne river which flows through Brussels. These beers are also called Lambic beers. Beers of mixed origin These beers are blends of spontaneous fermentation beers and ales or lagers or they are ales or lagers which are also fermented by wild yeasts. By knowing your different types of beers, you can find the beer that suites you more easily. 909 MAGAZINE

Help Your Kids Re-focus on School

ome kids may get distracted from their studies. If you and your kids want to re-focus on success, here are suggestions for kick-starting learning: Commit to Learning With your children, come up with one or two major goals that you want to accomplish for the remainder of this school year. Raising that algebra grade? Getting homework done on time and turning it in the next day? Organizing a study area at home? Using a planner regularly and efficiently? Agree on some age-appropriate rewards and consequences. Commit to a family-centered goal that education is important to all of you, and work together to support and help each other.

Set up Helpful Routines Give your kids the consistency of fairly regular routines (weekends and holidays can be breaks). Bedtime, wake-up, study, homework, play, family time — kids rely on these routines, and the structure helps them to feel safe, know what’s expected of them and be successful. Help them Organize Organized kids do better in school than haphazard kids. Help them to set up their planners (written or electronic), to keep their notebooks and backpacks orderly, to break up large assignments into smaller ones so they don’t seem overwhelming, to maintain a work space at home that’s actually workable and not a disaster area, and to stick to the goals you’ve set.

Maintain Healthy Habits Healthy kids are better learners. Help your children by monitoring their screen time (TV, video games, cell phones, etc.), making sure they’re getting enough sleep, insisting on their good eating habits, making sure they’re involved in regular and aerobic exercise, and sticking to the goals and routines you’ve established. Be a Good Role Model Kids learn from their parents. If they see you’re organized, focused on what’s important to you and your family, staying healthy and being true to your values, they’ll pick up some important life lessons. Don’t Give Up Let your kids know that you’re serious about these goals and

that their school success is as critical to you as it is to them. This will help them take you seriously. If they see this as something that you really do not care about, chances are they will not take this serious. Ask Other Parents Make sure to talk to other parents to take advantage of their experiences. You’re not the only one trying to keep your kids on track. Learn from parents who’ve been through this, teachers who have guided hundreds of kids, and others whose opinions you respect. No one has all the answers. _______________________ Editor’s Note: We want to hear from local teachers that would like to contribute educational news and tips. Call us at (909) 252-7224 909 MAGAZINE

The Support Music Merit Award is an important part of the NAMM Foundation’s efforts to advocate for school-based music education. Numerous studies have demonstrated that learning to play music can boost academic and social skills, such as math and learning to cooperate in a group.

2014 Acura RDX

2014 Honda Accord

Fresh off a full redesign, the 2nd-generation Acura RDX is a rare example of an SUV that does almost everything right. Its no-frills character, strong-yet-fuel-efficient V6, and expansive list of standard equipment make the 2014 Acura RDX a serious contender in the luxury SUV segment. The RDX further impresses with one of the best audio systems on the market.

The Honda Accord competes in the highly competitive midsize sedan segment, but despite all the heavy competition, the Accord still manages to be a favorite, not just within the segment, but overall, as it continues to be one of the top-selling models in the U.S. With new engines and variants, the Accord doesn’t intend on slowing down for the 2014 model year.

COSMETIC CORNER Dr. Gregory Vipond’s approach to facial beauty and rejuvenation is one of symmetry and balance. His goal for every patient is for them to leave his office without appearing to have ever seen him by enhancing a patient’s natural beauty without leaving any signs of cosmetic treatments or having a “done” look. By understanding the complex anatomy of the face and neck and how it changes with advancing age, he can better repair the ravages of time, leaving you with youthful features. It is very true that Facial Plastic Surgery incorporates a great deal of artistry alongside the science of medicine, and having an appreciation of beauty is a requirement for successful results. Dr. Vipond believes it is a privilege to be entrusted with the care of his patients. He understands that facial plastic and cosmetic surgery is a choice and wants to reward your trust with an honest discussion of your hopes and concerns and to create a treatment blueprint that will help ensure the best possible outcome and value. One of the most enjoyable aspects of his practice is learning how the positive physical changes translate into positive reactions and interactions in a patient’s social network. It is rewarding for him to see how an improvement in appearance can restore one’s

DR. GREGORY VIPOND self-image and confidence which can lead to an enhanced outlook on life. Despite the often-quoted phrase: “Beauty is only skin deep”, it is very evident that we live in a visual society. First impressions are made in seconds and based primarily on physical appearance. During his residency, he conducted research which demonstrated that patients after facial plastic surgery were judged by others to have more positive personalities and life success based only on their physical appearance. While this may sound unfair, it is a reality that judgment is often based on physical attributes. Through facial rejuvenation and beautification, Dr. Vipond can help reverse the fatiguing effects of aging and let the rest of the world see your “inner child”. vv Dr. Vipond’s decision to enter medicine was made very early. He was drawn toward Facial Plastic Surgery during medical school since it combined artistry with the physical science of surgery. He was inspired by the ability to enhance facial harmony and balance. During his training, he gained a large amount of experience in repairing facial traumas and congenital defects. He found it extremely rewarding to restore the self-image of these patients. Throughout his education, he was fortunate to have been trained by excellent surgeons who were demanding in their attention to detail yet. Dr. Vipond has carried these lessons with himself into practice. Through meticulous planning and careful surgical technique, he strives to provide the finest care and results for each of his patients and to help meet their expectations. Dr. Vipond looks forward to meeting with you in the near future and to offer you true VIP facial artistry.

Casa Colina’s President Reflects on Last 75 Years & The Future most of us were born with the firm imprint of its founder, Frances Eleanor Smith. And it will exist to serve patients long after we are forgotten.

W

hen I think of the development at Casa Colina in the last decade and put that in the perspective of Casa Colina’s 75-year history, I realize that we, the staff, are simply temporary caretakers of this marvelous institution. It existed before

The best thing that could be said of us is that we left it in a better condition than when we started – providing better clinical services to people, and better able to weather whatever happens in the future. These efforts have resulted in a staff of therapists, nurses, physicians and support people recruited from all over the United States, and is second to none. We have instituted a physician-driven medical model in all of Casa Colina’s programs and we have increased access to specialists with the Physician Clinics. Casa Colina is again a national presence, taking a leadership role with the American Med-

ical Rehabilitation Providers Association, providing more than 31,212 internship hours for nursing and therapy students, and collaborating on physician education with UCLA, the Massachusetts General Hospital and Western University. Our specialized outpatient and pediatric services provide more than 70,000 treatment visits a year, and we have achieved positive nets from operations for 13 consecutive years. Most importantly, we have been able to provide individualized care for more than 10,600 people a year. The new hospital and campus renovations of the last decade are another major step in creating an environment that is supportive for physicians and good for the health care of all the people we serve. Our new Medical Office Building will

permit an extended range of medical practices that will have, within a few steps, imaging services, ambulatory surgery, laboratory, urgent care, pharmacy and a source for durable medical equipment. All of this complements our broad continuum of rehabilitation services for children and adults. In this 75th anniversary year, we are conscious we could not have this strength and provide these services without your continuing support. Thank you for that support and your dedication to the health of our community. We will continue to do our absolute best for each and every single one of you. ______________________ Casa Colina is located at 255 East Bonita Avenue Pomona, CA 91767 909-596-7733

I’ve failed too many times. Like countless others, I had started a million different fad diets and gave up on them shortly after. I know this time is different. This time, I refuse to fail. Maybe its my new mentality, a new method, or maybe its because I’ve come so far and cant let that all go to waste? I don’t know. But one thing I do know, I have found something that works. Fast Forward to 5 months later, and 55 pounds down, and I’m feeling better than ever! Do you want to know my secret? Its simple really. First, I’ll tell you this. I grew up in a pretty typical middle class Mexican-American house hold with two over-weight parents and 3 sisters.

My house was a breeding ground for unhealthy eating habits, and of course, my sisters and I developed those habits and carried them into our adult lives. I cant really say that any of us are happy this way, but old habits die hard right? The countless attempts at “dieting” all ended in failure. I guess I didn’t want success as bad as i thought i did, and as bad as i do now. I’m not sure what makes this time different, but I know it is, I can feel it! The ironic part is this wasn’t even my idea! My younger sister decided she was ready to make a change, and that’s when I jumped on board! There was no way I was letting her leave me in the dust! So we jumped head-first into new, healthier lives. We tried a few things, but found our way to clean eating and the gym! It has been a slow and arduous process, but both having lost over 50 pounds, we are happier than ever! (cont. page 62)

These last 5 months have been a huge learning experience for my sister and I. We have had so many successes and failures, but we’ve come so far, and have stayed committed! It has been interesting finding what type of eating worked best for us and all those times I failed, I wish someone would have just told me, success doesn’t come in the form of a pill! Or a drink, or a bar, or a frozen container! (at least for me it didn’t!). For me, success is coming with a lot of drive, hard work, and Clean Eating! This isn’t a new, complicated secret! It is so simple, and yet, I’m in love with this lifestyle. There are not strict rules to eating clean, and they may even be slightly different for every person that follows this style of eating, but generally, clean eating means eating whole, natural, and un-

processed foods. This isn’t a strict diet that bans bread or sugar, but rather pulls you away from processed foods. Clean eating means choosing things that don’t come in packages, things that expire (how do you feel about eating “foods” that never go bad?), things with fewer ingredients and shopping on the perimeter of your Eating REAL grocery store! food; things that are natural, and not made in a factory with a list of 30 ingredients that no one can ever pronounce! I have developed a love for eating and cooking real food. I’ve learned to cook in a new way! I love experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes that I can eat, knowing that they are beneficial to my body rather than harmful and toxic. One of my favorite things to do is recreate “clean” versions of foods that my family loves!

Clean eating paired with some hard work at the gym has been tremendously effective for my sister and I! U was skeptical about weight training at first, but have seen great reuslts! Seeing progress and knowing I’m stronger now than i was last year is really exciting!

itchen makeovers remain popular as homeowners continue to invest to create a warm, stylish & comfortable home. In addition to improved aesthetics and organization, kitchen remodels also hold reasonable resale value. According to Remodeling magazine’s 2011-2012 Cost vs. Value Report, midrange minor kitchen remodels—new countertops, appliances, cabinet fronts, and hardware—have an average national cost just shy of $20,000 and get 72% return on investment. Midrange major remodels, which include new appliances, cabinets, countertops, flooring, and lighting, have a mid-range average of $57,824 and a nearly 66% return. High-end renovations can easily cost $100,000 and up. Though aesthetics are important, the driving remodeling force is functionality. Start by doing some research. Next, set a budget that reflects your main priorities for the new space and familiarize yourself with basic elements of design. Planning Your Best Kitchen Today’s kitchens average 200–300 square

feet and are increasingly part of an openfloor plan. Other trends include a move towards simplicity & energy efficiency. Look to design books, magazines, and websites for ideas. Here are some key points to get you started: How will you use the kitchen? Before you do anything, determine how you like to cook and entertain in your kitchen. Do you cook alone or with someone? Is your kitchen a multi-purpose room where kids do homework? Keep track of what currently works well and what doesn’t. For instance, if you’re forever crawling into the back of lower cabinets to retrieve something, jot that issue down. Stop the clutter. Now is your chance to take inventory of everything you need to store, then plan accordingly. G Shaped Kitchen If your kitchen feels more like an obstacle course than an organized work place, consider two tried-and-true kitchen layout basics: The Work Triangle. This imaginary trian-

gle features the stove, refrigerator, and sink at the points. The old “26-foot rule” dictates that the perimeter of this triangle should not exceed 26 feet and that each side should be between four and nine feet long. Make sure that the triangle doesn’t intersect an island for more than a foot. The Work Station Create separate stations for food prep, cooking, baking, and cleaning. Each area is centered around a major appliance and needs at least 15 inches of counter space. Stick with a Budget. You’ll need to make choices on where to save and where to splurge. A $500 range or a $10,000 one? A $100 sink or one that’s $3,500? A $4 polished brass knob or a $98 crystal model? As for budget breakdown, the NKBA Kitchen Planner notes that you can expect cabinetry and hardware to run about 29% of your investment, appliances and ventilation can be 14%, countertops typically run 10%, and installation is about 17% of the total project cost. Set aside 10% or 20% of your budget for contingencies. 909 MAGAZINE
