-Photo by Terry Miller

For a third year in a row the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) presented CAL FIRE and DynCorp International with the FAA’s Diamond Award of Excellence for Aviation Maintenance. The award recognizes CAL FIRE’s aviation maintenance unit after all maintenance technicians

pass a rigorous and specialized aircraft safety training program CAL FIRE’s fleet of airtankers and helicopters are vital to our ability to extinguish wildfires,” said Chief Ken Pimlott, director of CAL FIRE. “This award is a testament to the hardwork our aviation staff and

the DynCorp International mechanics devote every single day to keep our aircraft safely flying.” CAL FIRE maintains 23 airtankers, 14 airtactical aircraft, 11 helicopters, and numerous other fixed-wing training and administrative aircraft. All the aircraft are maintained at the depart-

Power (GWP) and CEIVA Energy, a utility-controlled home energy management system (HEMS) provider, today announced they will expand their customer engagement program. Based on the success of the initial deployment, GWP and CEIVA will work together to deliver additional energy savings tools to customers, including smart thermostats. The pilot program expansion will reach more than six times as many Glendale residential customers as in the initial deployment, helping GWP reach its energy efficiency, demand response and customer engagement goals. The expanded customer engagement pilot

All customers will continue to receive CEIVA’s “glanceable” in-home display, which collects data directly from homeowners’ digital meters, analyzes the data and converts it into compelling, personalized messages and visuals. The Homeview display then presents these messages alongside cloud-based personal photos and engaging conservation messages to support the utility’s goals. The expanded deployment will also offer all participants a programmable communicating thermostat and tie in directly with

program, enabling customers to dramatically save on energy costs during times of peak demand. GWP and CEIVA recently announced strong survey results from their initial pilot program rollout. Deploying just the inhome display and cloud services, GWP customers reported a nine fold improvement in understanding of their energy consumption. Eighty three percent of respondents reported changing their behavior to reduce energy and water use after joining the CEIVA pilot program. “After seeing the impressive customer feed-

After a rail safety improvement project approved by the Glendale City Council, Grandview & San Fernando intersection is now open! The rail safety improvement included widening Grandview Avenue between San Fernando Road and Air Way and installing a traffic signal at the Grandview Avenue and Air Way intersection. In November of 2012, the City of Glendale held a press conference with Metrolink to introduce the new sealed corridor project. As part of Metrolink's ongoing effort to create sealed corridors throughout its system, the commuter rail agency began construction at four crossings in the cities of Glendale and Los Angeles. The crossing upgrades include roadway widening, new automatic vehicle exit gates, sidewalks, handrails, automatic pedestrian gates and traffic signal advance preemption technology. Metrolink worked with Glendale City Council to provide safety improvements on the Metrolink system to reduce the possibility of accidents, collisions and other incidents.

Covering essential expenses in retirement Today’s retirees face unique challenges — including prolonged periods of market uncertainty and longer average lifespans — which make thoughtfully planning for retirement more critical than ever. For most, feeling more confident about retirement comes down to the ability to pay for essential expenses — the predictable and recurring costs of life’s necessities. Some of the most common essential expenses include food, home maintenance costs, mortgage or rent payments, taxes and insurance premiums. How can you cover these expenses? Since markets will always fluctuate, having a concrete financial strategy that includes guaranteed or stable income sources can help you cover your essential expenses in all market environments. If you’re nearing retirement, you may already have one or more sources of guaranteed or stable income in place, most notably Social Security. You may also have a defined benefit plan through your employer. Yet, no matter how strong these two sources of income may be, they might not be sufficient to cover your essential

expenses in retirement. This means that you will likely have to rely on your savings to pay some of your basic living costs. There are several financial solutions that offer guaranteed or stable income and can help you cover the gap between what you have in place and what you’ll need, for example: • Annuities — Annuities can generate a reliable stream of income throughout retirement. Annuity contract guarantees are backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. They can provide a stable income for a desired period of time, or for life. Some annuity contracts may also provide principle protection. The unique features of annuities offer opportunities for tax deferred future income growth. There are also many different optional features and benefits that may be available for an additional cost with annuities. In return for the benefits they provide, annuities carry a surrender charge and other fees. • Bank deposits — Most savings accounts, Certificates of Deposit (CDs) and other deposit arrangements at a bank offer a set interest

rate and return of principal, and are protected by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) for up to $250,000 per account registration. (For more information, visit FDIC.gov.) • U.S. Government Securities — Savings bonds and United States Treasury Securities are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government. They may pay a stated interest rate,or be purchased at a discount of face value. There are many strategies that can be used to generate income with these instruments. Interest income from Treasury bonds is generally exempt from state and local income taxes, but is subject to federal income taxes. Having the financial security you need to enjoy retirement takes planning and hard work. All of these investment choices can provide a regular stream of income over time, so you can count on payments to help you meet the challenges of an uncertain environment. Consider working with a financial professional who can help you find the best financial strategy for you based on your financial situation and goals.

A new California Appellate case just published August 8, 2013, “Glaski v. Bank of America”, holds that a homeowner can challenge his lender’s right to foreclose by showing that the Deed of Trust never made it into the securitized trust until after the trust’s closing date. This is the case in most loans made in the last 12 years. If the bank foreclosed we should be able to get the homeowner money damages and/or the house back. Or a lawsuit could be filed and a court ruling obtained preventing the court from foreclosing. Recently enacted Sections 2924(a)(6) and 2924.19 of California Civil Code provide the same relief to homeowners. It is highly suggested that homeowners take this window of opportunity to get relief before the banks get Congress to close this door with national legislation. Contact us so we can help you.

DA Lacey unveils program to help victims of sex trafficking Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey announced today an innovative new diversion program aimed at getting young victims of sex trafficking off the streets and out of harm’s way. Until now, minors between the ages of 12 to 17 who were arrested for sex-related crimes were deemed juvenile delinquents. Between 2000 and 2010, the Juvenile Division of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office filed 2,188 petitions against minors caught soliciting or loitering for solicitation. Those arrested were processed through juvenile courts with little or no resources devoted to addressing the underlying issues that forced them into prostitution. “We believe that minors who engage in sex for pay are victims not criminals,” District Attorney Lacey said during a news conference. “We believe that we should help these children, not detain them. “Today, I am pleased to announce the launch of the First Step Diversion Program. First Step is innovative alternative to prosecution.” First Step is a diversion program aimed at providing victims of sex trafficking a chance to rebuild their lives before they are charged, appear

in court and are placed on probation. Lacey said the District Attorney’s Office is joining forces with the Los Angeles Police Department, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Los Angeles County Probation Department and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services to identify girls under 18 who have been arrested for sex related offenses. First Step will be rolled out in two Juvenile Division Branch Offices – Sylmar and Compton. These juvenile offices were selected due to the volume of arrests and because those girls arrested actually reside in that community. A supervising deputy district attorney will be assigned to oversee First Step within each juvenile office. For a period of one year, minors who agree to enter the First Step program will receive referral services, such as crisis intervention, sexual assault and mental health counseling, substance abuse treatment, education and other appropriate social services. The District Attorney’s Office has partnered with four nonprofit, community-based organizations to provide a wide array of social services. Lacey thanked the YWCA Greater Los Angeles, Sav-

ing Innocence, the Valley Trauma Center in Van Nuys and the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking for their generous support and willingness to offer programs to help rescue and redirect victims of sex trafficking. “I especially want to thank Faye Washington, president and CEO of the YWCA Greater Los Angeles for its $25,000 contribution,” Lacey said. “This money will be used to provide services to First Step participants.” At the end of the year, if the minor has successfully completed the program, the arrest that prompted the minor’s entry into program will be cleared. “We understand the enormous challenges these children face in trying to break away from their pimps and abusers,” District Attorney Lacey said. She noted that pimps target vulnerable youth us at: homeless -- runawayVisitand ChickensWelcome.com children who may have ALHAMBRA DENTAL experienced at 100 Southtrouble First Street Alhambra, CA 91801 home, youth with drug problems, children who have been sexually or physically abused or neglected. “These are the victims who have been robbed of hope at a very young age,” she said. “We want to stand beside these young victims and show them there is a way out if they just take the First Step.”

Stratosphere Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas By Greg Aragon The Stratosphere stands out among other hotel-casinos on the Las Vegas. Not only is the 1,149-fttall tower the tallest resort on the The Strip, but it also boasts some of the scariest rides I’ve ever seen up close - including one that I actually experienced. My recent getaway to the Stratosphere began when a friend and I checked into a 18th-floor guestroom overlooking the glitzy city and sprawling mountains and desert beyond. Spacious and comfortable, the room came with two luxury queen beds, contemporary decor, a work area with desk and a big flat-screen TV. Once unpacked I took the elevator down to the 80,000-sq-ft casino for a little action. With more than 1,200 of exciting slot and video poker games and 50 table games luring me in, I began at the quarter slots, where I played long enough to drink a couple

Bloody Mary’s and lose a mere $15, which wasn’t bad for about an hour or so of gambling fun. With the gambling fever out of my system, I met my friend for an elegant dinner at the Stratosphere’s award winning Top of the World Restaurant, located more than 800 ft above Las Vegas. Here we absorbed fabulous views, good wine and great food. Our meal began with a delicious roasted Kurobuta pork belly starter, with chimichurri and orange gastrique, arborio rice with cilantro and lime powder. We followed this with a comforting bowl of lobster bisque, with brandy and lobster cream garnish. While enjoying the appetizers we sipped Robert Mondavi Merlot from Napa, California and watched the lights of the city slowly drift past as the floor of the restaurant slowly revolved 360 degrees. For the main course I devoured Organic Aspen Ridge Ribeye with Horseradish Crust and Demi-Glace, while my friend enjoyed Prime Creekstone Farm New York Steak with Pep-

percorn Sauce. After dinner we finished the night with a couple martinis at AirBar, located near the restaurant, on level 108 of the Stratosphere tower. In the morning we were back atop the tower. But this time we weren’t there to fill our stomachs, we were there to empty them. In other words, we were about to board XScream, the craziest amusement ride I’ve taken. The adventure be-

gins when passengers are strapped into a eight-seat rollercoaster sitting on one short track. The coaster is then fired up and the victims, I mean passengers are propelled 27 ft out over the edge of the 866-ft high tower observation deck. It all sounds pretty simple, but it is also the most thrilling thing I’ve done since skydiving. But this isn’t all. Besides X-Scream, the tower offers thrill seekers three

other rides. These include Insanity, which employs a massive mechanical arm extending out 64 feet over the edge of the Stratosphere Tower and spins passengers in the open air at speeds of up to three ‘G’s, and an angle of up to 70 degrees; and Big Shot, which sits at the very top of the tower and catapults people 160 ft in the air at 45 mph, until they reach a altitude of 921 ft. The last ride and maybe the scariest of them all

is Skyjump, which is part skydive and part reverse bungee. The highest controlled free fall in the world, the Skyjump allows guests to put on a flight suit and attach to a high-speed “descender” cable and then literally jump off an 855-fthigh tower ledge.

back from our initial deployment with CEIVA, expanding the program to help more Glendale residents reduce their energy costs was an easy decision,” said Steve Zurn, General Manger of GWP. “The next phase of the pilot program gives GWP more ways to engage with a larger customer base, by offering the addition of smart thermostats that gives customers the tools to reduce their energy usage. As a result, we’ll be able to offer the right mix of targeted programs to boost engagement around energy use and help our customers reduce energy costs even farther.” Cus-

tomers that are interested in being part of the expanded pilot program should contact Varsenik Avetisian at GWP, vavetisian@ci.glendale.ca.us. In addition to providing clear benefits to GWP customers, the CEIVA Energy program will provide GWP with several additional utility services, including: • The Entryway software suite, which will allow GWP to analyze home energy use, monitor HEMS devices and deliver residential demand response • Integration of the Programmable Communicating Thermostat with Entryway and the Homeview

display, presenting energy use tied with specific heating and cooling behavior directly to customers • Product licensing, implementation, integration, training, and ongoing maintenance and service “CEIVA’s work with GWP proves that a compelling customer engagement platform is critical to helping utilities more effectively achieve their goals across a range of programs,” said CEIVA Energy CEO Dean Schiller. “GWP’s forwardthinking approach to energy engagement builds on our initial success to provide even more benefits to their customers and the Glendale community.”

Deputies arrest woman on animal cruelty, rescue injured dog Deputies assigned to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to the 23200 block of West Avenue D in the unincorporated area of Los Angeles Monday to a call for service regarding a person possibly abusing an animal. Deputies immediately began an investigation, contacting various people in the area. This ultimately led deputies to a residence. An injured dog could be seen through a window. Deputies contacted the resident and continued the investigation. The dog, a small sized, possi-

ble pit bull mix, was located inside the residence. Upon discovery it appeared that the dog was hardly able to move and was suffering from serious injuries to its head and eyes. An officer with the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control responded to the location, and together the deputies and the Animal Control Officer rescued the dog. The dog was removed from the location and transported for medical treatment. Deputies conducted an interview with the suspect,

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.

Benetone Hillin Entertainment (BHE), a merging of Hillin Entertainment USA and Benetone Films, the largest foreign film production company in Thailand, is poised to become a one-stop-shop for everything production related in the United States and Asia. The newly formed international production and servicing company is a strategic partnering of Santa Monica based Daemon Hillin who serves as President of Production and oversees the domestic arm of the company and brothers Rachvin and Kulthep Narula who remain on site in Thailand. Committed to producing beautifully shot, high quality independent films of all genres and budgets, BHE is bursting onto the scene with a burgeoning slate of projects in various stages of production. February 14-20, local moviegoers can catch the company’s action love story A Stranger In Paradise at the Arena Cinema in Hollywood. The film, which was directed by Corrado Boccia and stars Colin Egglesfield (Something Borrowed), Stuart Townsend (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) and Oscar nominated Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace), is playing in select theaters throughout the country. The Thai mafia-esque thriller follows the plight of a man, who on the verge of making partner, has his life turned upside down when the SEC investigates the head of his multibilliondollar hedge fund for insider trading.

deep into the Thai mafia, and a propensity for getting shot at. Unfortunately the only way out is to give up information he doesn’t know he has. Benetone Hillin Entertainment also recently made news by signing multiple Emmy Award winning writer Gordon Bressack (Animaniacs, Pinky and The Brain, WordGirl) on Oliver Storm and the Curse of Sinbad’s Treasure. Bressack who is writing the live action feature film along with son James Cullen Bressack will also executive produce with Rajpal Narula. On the post-production front, the busy company is finishing Pernicious, a gory fest film, starring Emmy-nominated Emily O’Brien (Young and the Restless), Ciara Hanna (Power Rangers) and Jackie Moore (100 Ghost Street). Both A Stranger In Paradise and Pernicious were shot in Thailand and utilized the company’s extensive global resources

and relationships. “Benetone Hillin Entertainment is a strategic partnership born from a shared passion for producing beautifully shot, high quality independent films of all genres and budgets,” said Santa Monica-based Hillin, who serves as President of Production and oversees the domestic arm of the company. Partners Rachvin and Kulthep Narula of Benetone Films remain on site in Thailand, where they have line produced over 75 feature films and 600 television commercials over the last decade. “We are thrilled to extend our successful creative collaboration beyond our own productions and strive to become a one-stop-shop for everything production related in the United States and Asia including visas, permits, locations and local crew members.” “Our reach and relationships span the world with an emphasis on the United States and Southeast Asia which includes 11

countries that reach from India to China,” added the Narula brothers who have cemented their positions as leaders of filming in the scenic region, earning a ranking by Thailand Film Commission as the premiere Production Company in Thailand for the past five years in a row. “We look forward to sharing our areas of expertise to further promote filmmaking in these affordable and naturally beautifully locations. In turn, we are proud to refer filmmakers in Southeast Asia wanting to shoot in the United States to the capable hands of our partner Daemon Hillin.” Prior to forming Benetone Hillin Entertainment, Hillin, who specializes in film financing, GAP financing and film production, produced numerous films including Killing Winston Jones starring Oscar Winner Richard Dreyfuss, Danny Glover, Danny Masterson and Jon Heder and Auteurdirected by Cameron Romero.

ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, this information can be obtained from one of the following three companies: LPS Agency Sales and Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www. lpsasap.com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting and Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com (Click on the link for “Advanced Search” to search for sale information), or auction.com at 1-800280-2832 or visit the Internet Web site www. auction.com, using the Trustee Sale No. shown above. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
