Rep. Schiff has “grave concerns” about U.S. providing arms to Syrian Rebels Rep. Adam Schiff (DCA), a senior Member of the Intelligence Committee, issued the following statement in response to published reports that the U.S. may provide weapons to the Syrian opposition: “What began as an expression of the legitimate aspiration of the Syrian people for better governance has now become a sectarian civil war in which extremist forces like Hezbollah and Iran fight on one side, and groups linked to al Qaeda commit atrocities on the other. “I have grave concerns about the United States becoming an arms provider in this civil war. Supplying small arms and ammunition to certain rebel elements may help to stabilize the situation on the battlefield in the near term, but it will not alter the strategic balance. If and when this proves to be insufficient to affect the outcome, we will undoubtedly be called upon to provide even more powerful weaponry, to establish a no fly zone, or to risk American lives. “The President is right to condemn the Assad re-

On Friday, June 28th, Senator Carol Liu will host a public forum titled “Insurance in an Era of Climate Change” with keynote speaker Dave Jones, California Insurance Commissioner. As climate change has been fueling the frequency of wildfires and other unusual events, the Union of Concerned Scientists will present expert panelists to discuss the latest climate information, its impact on California homeowners insurance in high-risk areas, and how insurers, policymakers, and consumers can work together to identify the best methods to strengthen our resilience to the impacts of climate change. “Wildfires cost California hundreds of millions of dollars each year in firefighting efforts and property damage,” said Adrienne Alvord, UCS California and Western States director. “With climate change fueling the frequency of wildfires, Californians who live in high-risk areas are facing an additional threat to the availability and affordability of their homeowners insurance.” This forum will examine how current climate change

information is affecting the insurance industry, and provide a clearer picture as to what Southern California residents can expect in years ahead. Forum speakers will include: Susanne Moser, Ph.D., Director and Principal Researcher of Susanne Moser Research & Consulting in Santa Cruz, California. She is also a Social Science Research Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University and a Research Associate at the University of California at Santa Cruz, Institute for Marine Sciences. Anthony L. Westerling, associate professor in the

School of Engineering at the University of California, Merced. Stephen Bushnell, product director at Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company. Andrew Logan, director of Ceres’ Oil & Gas and Insurance Programs. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions for a Q&A session. Refreshments will be provided.

Rustic charm at Drakesbad Guest Ranch Part 2 By Greg Aragon Lassen Volcanic National Park is home to smoking fumaroles (steam and volcanic-gas vents), mud pots, boiling pools, lush meadows, streams, crystal clear lakes, and towering volcanoes. It is also home to Drakesbad Guest Ranch, a 110-yr-old mountain hideaway, where a friend and I recently spent a couple rustic nights in a bungalow below the stars. One of the many highlights of our visit was a memorable hike to Devils Kitchen, a steamy mountain patch surrounded by boiling mudpots, hydrothermal vents and natural springs. To get here we hiked about an hour through lovely Warner Valley meadows and forests. The journey took us over wooden bridges, past lonely creeks and through marsh and thick woodlands to an eerily beautiful area, encompassed by crackled yellow and red mounds of earth erupting with streams

steam. As the steam swirls into the air it hisses and plops and sounds like the earth is cooking. The volcanic park’s unique hydrothermal system is caused when rain and snow water fall and seep deep into the ground and is heated by hot molten rock beneath Lassen Peak. Rising hot water boils to form boiling pools and mud pots. Superheated steam reaches the surface through fractures in the earth to form fumaroles like those at Devil’s Kitchen. And speaking of kitchens, Drakesbad has got a pretty good one of its own. In fact, the ranch is a bit of a dichotomy: it offers rustic living on the one hand, but boasts top-shelf, gourmet cuisine on the other. This is great because breakfast, lunch and dinner are all included with the price of the room. We enjoyed a prime (rib) example of the food on our second night at the lodge. This feast began with a lettuce wedge salad with blue cheese, vinaigrette, avocado and bacon. This was followed by suc-

culent, oven roasted Angus prime rib with fingerling potatoes, broccoli, beef au jus sauce and beaver’s horseradish. After dinner, we soaked in Drakesbad’s natural and therapeutic, hot springs pool. Back at the room, we lit the kerosene lanterns and I fell asleep reading a classic novel. In the morning we devoured a great county breakfast in the lodge and then walked over to the

stables and saddled up for a horseback ride to Terminal Geyser. Horses have been a part of Drakesbad since the early 1900’s. The ranch offers guided trail rides (check website for pricing) for beginners and experts. Ours 3-hour trek through the forest and meadows came with post card views of Lassen Peak, nearby Lake Almanor, and glorious fields of Mule Ears flowers.

After the ride, we enjoyed a tasty lunch with soup and sandwiches at the lodge and then tried our hand at archery. We concluded the afternoon on our balcony watching marmots and deer graze on the wild grass a few feet from us. Other fun activities and Drakesbad include fishing expeditions, massage treatments, and numerous things for the kids such as treasure hunts,

arts and crafts, “ice cream socials,” and star gazing nights. Drakesbad Guest Ranch is located in Lassen Volcanic National Park in Northern California. The ranch is open June 7 - October 14. All meals are included with price of room and kids stay free. For more information on visiting Drakesbad Guest Ranch, call (866) 999-0914 or visit www.drakesbad. com.

This allows us to be real experts in what we do and to concentrate on delivering the patient care that matters. The fact we serve more than 18,000 patients over 18 states and are growing rapidly is testament to our focus and commitment to delivering timely setup and having happy and compliant patients.

able to continue to collect usage data.

Compliance through great patient care

When calling patients we use data generated from our proprietary Download on Demand® software. This takes the raw data streams from patient’s modems, parses the data to produce compliance reports containing key data points and a graph that our clinicians use so that they can have an intelligent conversation with the patient based on that patient’s actual use of their equipment. Of course patients can (and do!) call in to our patient care center for help and advice from our clinicians at any time.

is what really sets us apart from the pack. Our licensed respiratory professionals (respiratory therapists and registered sleep techs) work with patients from the time of setup and throughout their therapy with one goal in mind…to ensure they quickly adapt to their therapy and stay compliant over time.

Our CPAP Circle of Care® program

was carefully designed to achieve this. The first step of the program is for one of our licensed respiratory therapists to complete the setup faceto-face with the patient, either in their home or their doctor’s office, usually within 72 hours of approval. Our R/T will set the machine to the prescription and then educate the patient on its use, care and maintenance. And educate the patient on what to expect over the first days and weeks of their therapy. We set up all patients on the highest quality machines fitted with wireless modems (regardless of insurance). And we leave the modems on the machine indefinitely so as to be

After setup patients are passed to our patient care center for ongoing compliance care. Our licensed clinicians make outgoing calls at 72 hours, 30 days and 90 days after setup to interdict any problems patients may be having. A field R/T will make a re-visit to a patient in their home where a problem cannot be resolved over the phone.

Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance

Our goal is to have happy, compliant patients while taking the brunt of the every-day questions patients invariably have. This relieves the burden from our referring physician’s offices who otherwise have to deal with this call volume, and depending on the experience of the doctor in this field, may not be able to answer typical questions the patient has regarding equipment issues (e.g. how to fix a leaking mask).

Skeptical?

So you’ve heard it all before? All the DME’s brag that they’re the best and have a great compliance and supply replenishment program.... everybody talks the talk...so who do you believe? Your patients...that’s who! We’ll prove it to you. Send us two or three patients and then ask your patients about the care they received and their opinion of the process... then compare the results to your existing DME provider. Talk to your staff about the interaction they have with our office. Look at our documentation. Reach out to Bill Kleiman (contact info below) to set up an inservice over lunch with your staff to go over our program and answer any questionvs you may have.

The prescribing doctor receives documentation by eFax (or electronically via EMR system integration), starting with confirmation of receipt of the referral through every touch we have with the patient. This includes a copy of the 2-page compliance reports containing our Download on Demand® data and a copy of the notes made by our clinician during a call. Our proprietary systems automate the flow of documentation keeping referring doctors completely informed about their patients’ progress and ensure physicians have the documentation they need for follow-up consultations with their patients.

5 people arrested for $200K Macy’s gift card fraud scheme On January 25, 2012, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office charged Richard Reyes Duenas with one count of Grand Theft, one count of Conspiracy to Commit Fraud, three counts of Acquiring Access Card Account Information to Commit Grand Theft and nine counts of Access Card Forgery in connection with Gift Card Fraud associated with Macy’s Department Store. The Los Angeles County Superior Court case number is BA392815. A subsequent investigation determined that Richard Reyes Duenas was obtaining Macy’s Department Store gift card account numbers and associated PIN codes, which he utilized to prepare forged Macy’s gift cards, via inactive Macy’s gift cards stolen from Macy’s Department Stores. The forged Macy’s Department Store gift cards were sold at street level to consumers by Richard Reyes Duenas’ associates. The fraudulent gift cards were also utilized by Richard Reyes Duenas, and his associates, to make Macy’s Department Store pur-

chases of Apple electronics. Richard Reyes Duenas had been connected to the theft of approximately $218,000 in Macy’s Department Store gift card dollars. A total of 41 Macy’s Department Stores were targeted, ranging from the Oakland area to San Diego. The city locations: Los Angeles, Burbank, Chula Vista, Torrance, El Cajon, San Diego, Culver City, Glendale, Santa Barbara, Laguna Hills, Lakewood, North Hollywood, Cerritos, Manhattan Beach, Mission Viejo, Montclair, Montebello, Newport Beach, Escondido, Northridge, National City, Pleasanton, City of Industry, San Bernardino, Daly City, Redondo Beach, Costa Mesa, Hayward, Sunnyvale, Thousand Oaks, Canoga Park, La Jolla, Ventura, Rancho Cucamonga, and Woodland Hills. Four associates of Richard Duenas were arrested and charged in 2012. They include Brent Justin Delgadillo, charged with one count Grand Theft, one count Conspiracy to Commit Fraud, and ten counts Access Card Forgery; No-

emi Fuentefria, charged with one count Grand Theft, one count Conspiracy to Commit Fraud, seven counts Access Card Forgery, and one count Access Card Sales; Geovani Vega, charged with one count Grand Theft, one count Conspiracy, four counts Access Card Forgery and one count of Acquiring Access Card Account Information to Commit Grand Theft; and Daniel Alvarez, charged with one count Grand Theft and one count Conspiracy. Between the dates of May 16 -17, 2012 all four associates were arrested and have been successfully prosecuted by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. Richard Reyes Duenas waived extradition and was subsequently transported to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Walnut Sheriff’s Station, where he was booked on June 19, 2013 for the indicated charges. Anyone with information or questions regarding this case is asked to contact Detective R. Barton at (562) 946-7217.

Home prices have soared nearly 29 percent The real estate market in California is moving once again with the median home price for single family residences now above $400,000 in April for the first time in many years, according to a report published by the California Association of Realtors. The median home price in the state is now $402,760. That is up from $378,960, or 6.3 percent, from a month earlier, according to the report. But even more astonishing is the fact that home prices have soared nearly 29 percent since a year ago in April 2012. At that time the median home price statewide was $312,500, according to the report. In addition, sales of homes were up 1.3 percent in April over a month earlier. However, most like due to the increase in price, sales were down over the previous year 3.7 percent, according to the report. Looking at the Los An-

By SHEL SEGAL geles Metropolitan Area, the median home price for single family residences crept over the $370,000 mark in April, up nearly 28 percent from a year earlier when it sat just under $290,000. It was also up 5 percent over March’s amount of $352,510, according to the report. Sales were also higher than a year ago, increasing 2.2 percent, and were higher than the previous month, rising a whopping 6 percent in one month, according to the report. Houses statewide are also on the market fewer days than they were a year ago, down from 48 days to about 28 days, according to the report. In the LA area, those numbers change from 54.8 to 35.2. Ray Wells, a real estate agent with Teles Properties who does a lot of business in San Gabriel, said it’s just old fashioned economics driving the market.

“We’re seeing such limited inventory,” Wells said. “It’s a situation where the sellers who couldn’t sell a couple of years ago because of being upside down definitely can now. It’s amazing how fast it’s happened, but it’s truly supply and demand.” But he said there are other factors at work as well. “Along with lower interest rates, you’re also seeing Pacific Rim money coming into play,” Wells said. “They’re seeing the United States as being a safe place to put their money and it’s good for our economy.” In addition, Wells said the rapid rise in prices shouldn’t look troublesome to anyone. “It’s not like last time where you had people getting unqualified loans,” he said. “These are qualified people getting qualified loans. I don’t believe we’re looking at a bubble here.”

Los Angeles Superior Court Continued from page 1

The reductions made to date already saved $70 million. The current actions will save another $30 million. Despite these cuts, the Court faces future additional shortfalls as more reductions in state support for the trial courts are proposed for the Fiscal Year 2012-13 budget. As of this writing, the state budget is not yet finished, but the Governor’s May Revision proposes to reduce judicial branch funding by another $544 million, and to eliminate the ability of the courts to use or maintain reserves as bridge funding to delay the impacts of cuts. LASC will likely face additional mandatory reductions of more than $40 million during the next fiscal year. “Because the California trial courts are state funded, our Court has become a casualty of the state budget crisis,” noted Edmon. “We have blunted the impacts of the cuts through the use of locally held reserves,” said Edmon. “But we cannot do that indefinitely – especially if those reserves are swept, as is being considered in the current budget talks. Our Court is in the midst of a series of painful and wrenching reductions that must ultimately bring services in line with significant reductions in state funding.” According to Assistant Presiding Judge David Wesley, “There will be more cuts next year, and their impacts will be severe. The current cuts already affect the core work of court – the judge in the courtroom – while signifi-

cant budget shortfalls remain. Given the significance of our responsibilities to protect public safety and children, the next round of reductions will further limit our ability to hear civil cases.” Across-the-board cuts will eliminate 341(corrected) positions in four areas, totaling $30 million in ongoing savings: •Eliminating courtroom staffing in 56 courtrooms will save $6.8 million, a change that affects courtrooms in civil (24 courtrooms affected), criminal (24), family law (3), probate (1) and juvenile (4). The changes to the affected courtrooms have been underway for the past several weeks; they are already being felt across the county. •Eliminating the Court’s innovative Informal Juvenile Traffic courts will save $4.8 million and will result in the closure of 11 additional courtrooms. •Reducing court reporter services will save $10.3 million. These changes began affecting civil courtrooms on May 15, when court-employed reporters were no longer available for civil trials. • Eliminating 110 management, clerical and administrative positions outside of the courtrooms will save $8.2 million. These impacts will be felt across the Court, from clerk’s windows across the county, to central administrative functions. Altogether, these cuts will impact 431 court staff: • 157 people are being laid off,

• 108 people will lose 40% of their salaries when they are moved to a threeday-per-week schedule, •86 people will lose between 5% and 40% of their salary when they are reclassified to lower-level positions, •80 people are being transferred to new jobs, and typically new locations, because their old jobs have been eliminated. Notices to affected employees are being hand-delivered tomorrow. Those laid off will be given two weeks’ paid administrative leave, during which time they may attend Court-provided workshops on post-employment benefit issues. By tomorrow, the LASC will have reduced the number of budgeted positions by 23% since 2002. “We are in the midst of a fundamental restructuring of the California courts,” notes John A. Clarke, the Executive Officer and Clerk of Court. “But the final outcome is difficult to manage, and impossible to predict, due to the speed and severity of the budget cuts being forced upon us. “Legislators and the Governor are restructuring how California addresses corrections, public education, and welfare and health services. Our court is swept up in these catastrophic changes,” said Clarke. “The commitment of our judicial officers and staff to preserve access to justice is unwavering, but our ability to follow through on that commitment may soon be exhausted,” he said.

Brian Wilson and Jeff Beck to play the Greek Theatre with Al Jardine & David Marks

Brian Wilson -Photo by Terry Miller

Following the announcement that Jeff Beck is guesting on his upcoming Capitol Records studio album, Brian Wilson cofounder of The Beach Boys has announced that the guitar icon will be joining him at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, October 20th. Brian’s former band mates Al Jardine & David Marks fresh off last year’s successful Beach Boys’s 50th Anniversary tour will join Wilson and Beck for an evening of historical collaboration. “Jeff is one of the most amazing guitarists I’ve ever worked with and his vibe is inspiring” says Wilson. “I feel like this is a cool continuation of what we did last year with the exciting addition of Jeff Beck. We’ve got some new tunes we want to try out on a live crowd as well as doing some great music from our catalogues.” Wilson, Jardine and Marks will be diving into The Beach Boys rich cata-

logue and Beck will join them on some of his favorite Beach Boys songs as well as performing a jewel from Brian’s upcoming album. Beck will also be performing a set of his own classics with his stellar band. Wilson is one of popular music's most deeply revered figures, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to call Brian Wilson one of the most influential composers of the last century. Wilson was barely out of his teens when he began to create some of the most beloved records ever... nine consecutive gold albums that featured such classics as "Surfer Girl," “In My Room,” “I Get Around,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” "Fun, Fun, Fun," “Help Me, Rhonda” and "California Girls"...just to name a handful of the more than two dozen Top 40 hits Brian co-wrote, arranged,

produced and performed on with his family band, The Beach Boys. Known as one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock, Jeff Beck was ranked 5th in Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” He has earned wide critical praise and received the Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance six times and Best Pop Instrumental Performance once. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice; as a member of the Yardbirds (1992) and as a solo artist (2009). Jardine was originally The Beach Boys rhythm guitarist and middle-range harmony vocalist and is well known for his lead vocal on the # 1 hit “Help Me Rhonda.” Continuing with his contributions to the Friends album, Jardine wrote or co-wrote a number of songs for The Beach Boys, varying in style from straight-ahead rockers like "Susie Cincinnati" to Wilsonesque mid-tempo harmony efforts like “Island Girl,” among others. David Marks was part of The Beach Boys line-up, at age 13, when they signed with Capitol Records in 1962. Marks performed on the band's first four albums, playing rhythm guitar and toured with the group. He most recently appeared last year on The Beach Boys album, ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio’ and 50th Anniversary tour. Tickets available at The Greek Theatre box office, online at Ticketmaster. com, at all Ticketmaster outlets or charge-by-phone at (800) 745-3000. All dates, acts and ticket prices subject to change without notice. A service charge is added to each ticket price. For more information, visit GreekTheatreLA.com.
