By Desert Star Staff In an operation that gripped the entire world, all 12 boys and their football coach have been successfully rescued from a cave in Thailand after being trapped for more than two weeks. Members of the ‘Wild Boars’ soccer team, who range in age from 12 to 16, and their coach became trapped after a rainy season downpour turned a cave adventure in the northern province of Chiang Rai into a nightmare, flooding the tunnels and making it impossible to leave. Divers began a search operation on June 25, and the group was finally found – all alive – by British divers on July 2. The search operation

quickly turned into a rescue mission involving 90 divers – 50 foreign and 40 Thai – though some warned it could take months. However, the first four boys were safely brought out of the cave on Sunday, tethered to rescue divers. An additional four boys were brought out on Monday, and the last four boys and the coach were rescued on Tuesday. The incredible rescue has been deemed a miracle by many, but the operation wasn’t without tragedy.

Cristiano Ronaldo joins Juventus from Real Madrid

By Desert Star Staff Real Madrid and Juventus have agreed a fee for striker Cristiano Ronaldo to move to the Italian club after almost a decade in the Spanish capital. Juventus will reportedly pay €118 million ($140 million) for the 33-year-old Portugal striker, with the news being confirmed on Tuesday after intense speculation surrounding the transfer. Ronaldo is signing a fouryear deal with the Serie A team and will earn a reported €30 million ($35 million) a year. Ronaldo had been at Real since 2009 and became the club’s all-time top scorer on 451 goals in a spell which saw him win the Champions League four times with the Spanish club, among numerous other titles. Real Madrid issued a statement on the move, thanking Ronaldo for his years of service and listing the many awards and accolades the team and player had achieved together. “Real Madrid CF communicates that, in response to the will and request expressed by the player Cristiano Ronaldo, he has agreed to transfer to Juventus FC.” the statement read. “Today, Real Madrid wants

to express its gratitude to a player who has proved to be the best in the world and who has marked one of the brightest times in the history of our club and world football. “Beyond the conquered titles, the trophies achieved, and the triumphs achieved in the playing fields during these 9 years, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and improvement. “He has also become the top scorer in the history of Real Madrid with 451 goals in 438 games. In total 16 titles, including 4 European Cups, 3 of them consecutive and 4 in the last 5 seasons. On an individual basis, with the Real Madrid jersey he has won 4 Gold Balls, 2 The Best, and 3 Gold Boots, among many other awards. “For Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of his great symbols and a unique reference for the next generations. “Real Madrid will always be your home.” In an open letter, Ronaldo thanked the Madrid club and its fans for “nine wonderful years.” “I only have feelings of enormous gratitude for this club and for this city,” Ronaldo wrote.

By Desert Star Staff That it was a center-back header off a set piece that guaranteed France a place in the World Cup final was apt for a journey that’s extolled toil and decisiveness over attacking fripperies. No more sailor shirts and cockerel hats. Just as his defensive partner Raphael Varane scored the winner against Uruguay in the previous match, in the 51st minute Samuel Umtiti

rose high to direct his header past the endless stretch of Thibaut Courtois. Off another delivery from Antoine Griezmann, though a corner, not a free-kick this time. Fans will complain that Griezmann has not taken on the mantle of Zinedine Zidane from 1998 and 2006 (though Kylian Mbappe is doing a more than adequate impression of a young Thierry Henry). But those must remember that it took two

“I have had nine absolutely wonderful years at the club. Real Madrid has conquered my heart, and that of my family, and that is why more than ever I want to say thank you: thank you to the club, the president, the directors, my colleagues, all the staff, doctors, physios and incredible people that make everything work. “Thanks to everyone and, of course, as I said that first time in our stadium nine years ago: Hala Madrid!” The transfer confirms intense speculation that the Portuguese star would

move from the Bernabeu, with the player enduring issues off the pitch with the Spanish tax authorities. He is reported to have reached an agreement in June to accept an €18.8 billion fine and suspended jail term over allegations of tax fraud. The transfer fee for the move to Juventus is a record for the club and for Italy, surpassing the €90 million the Turin team paid for Argentinian striker Gonzalo Higuain in 2016. Ronaldo and Real Madrid knocked out Juventus in the quarter-finals of last season’s

Champions League, with the number 7 scoring a stunning overhead kick in the first leg. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner recently led Portugal at the World Cup in Russia, where the team bowed out at the last 16 stage following a 2-1 defeat to Uruguay. Ronaldo scored four goals at the tournament, including a hat-trick in the opening game against Spain and a strike against Morocco which saw him become the all-time top European international scorer on 85 goals.

freak goals from non-scoring right back Lilian Thuram to push Les Bleus to their firstever final 20 years ago. And Didier Deschamps, another hero of 1998, portrayed as a philistine unaware of the banlieu-born jewels that had been bestowed upon him in advance of the tournament, will now feel vindicated. His team has grown stronger from match to match, and their ability to impose their dominance once in a winning position, both against Uruguay and here, is testament to a collective of formidable quality and nous. Yes, Olivier Giroud is still playing - scoring no goals, and trundling around as if his boots dig three inches into the ground with every step - but the big names, including Paul Pogba, are performing for their manager and teammates, and he has unearthed two new stars to the world in full-backs Theo Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard. The team will not care if they play England or Croatia on Sunday in Luzhniki, when they look to exorcise the ghosts of what looks like an even-more freakish Portuguese victory in the Euro 2016 final, a decent rehearsal for the current tournament. For Belgium, as for the neutral, in all honesty this game in St. Petersburg was a let-down after the thrilling

battle against Brazil. Perhaps, they gave all they had, and while that match will go down as one of the best from Russia 2018, the Red Devils will again feel that they didn’t give a comprehensive account of their gifts. Roberto Martinez

submitted a team sheet that suggested no obvious formation, and while his tinkering in Russia has partially restored a reputation damaged by his time at Everton, the gamble of including the previously underused Mousa Dembele did not pay off here.

By Janice Gough Some 213,000 jobs were added to the Job market the past month, and it is the second month in a row that hiring figures are above 200,000. The reason that unemployment ticked up slightly from 3.8 to 4 percent is that more people are looking for work. The increase in participation was entirely focused on people who have a high school diploma or less. This is an auspicious sign about the state of our labor market.

Job growth this year has been faster than in 2017. The year’s halfway point has created some 1.2 million jobs. Revised figures for April and May bring the monthly average for this year to 214,000 jobs—up from 182,000 the year before. Now is the best time ever to find that job you love. The unemployment rates have dropped to 4 Percent, meaning there has been more hiring. Job creation is plentiful in Coachella Valley. Also, it presents many new opportunities for all types of businesses and can help one to get established

on a lifetime career path. Coachella Valley will have the highest participation in the Cannabis boom in the country. This industry will offer jobs in many types of occupations, from Delivery to Security, Marketing, Distribution, Mechanics, Maintenance and other jobs related to Agriculture. And considering the “trickle down” effect, it will create tremendous opportunities in all of Coachella Valley. Our community and students will have the opportunity to get local training, due to new educational training sites. The College of the Desert will be opening their extension school in Palm Springs and other schools to will offer training in the many jobs in the Cannabis industry in both Desert Hot Springs and Indio. The fact that wages are increasing will cause us great growth in the Valley, Increasing the minimum wage can be advantageous in some ways and harmful in others. This depends on where the economy is. The Valley presents a perfect combination -many more jobs and higher wages. Due to a more stabilized economy, employers will not feel the pressure of the increase in the cost of labor. Considering the investment in our infrastructure, and the profits made in the Valley, the wage increase will not make a negative impact. Minimum wage in California is $10.50

Are These Rules Valid? By Kelly G. Richardson, Esq. CCAL Dear Mr. Richardson: The DavisStirling Act requires HOAs to develop certain operating rules, e.g., for elections or dispute resolution. Can (or should) the required rules be incorporated into the bylaws? Our small planned development (no recreational facilities, public streets, etc.) has little need for any rules other than what the Act requires. J.B., Santa Maria Dear J.B.: The Davis-Stirling Act requires five sets of rules: Election rules (Civil 5105), internal dispute resolution policies (Civil 5905); architectural application procedures (Civil 4765); a schedule of fines (Civil 5850), and assessment delinquency policies (Civil 5310(a)(7)). Most associations have additional rules meeting their particular needs, such as amenity usage rules, architectural and landscaping standards, parking rules, and meeting rules, for example. Bylaws should not contain rules. Bylaws are meant to be more permanent, since normally a vote of the entire

membership is required to amend bylaws. Bylaws should speak to how the corporation is governed – such as corporate powers and limits and board eligibility. Rules are less permanent, since they can be amended by the board with 30 days’ notice to the members. Could your community vote to amend the bylaws and transplant all the rules into the bylaws? Yes, but it’s not a good idea. As time passes, you all may find that some updating of certain rules is necessary and you do not want to have to hold a membership vote each time. Thanks, Kelly Dear Kelly: I bought a condo in Richmond, CA. and without reading the HOA rules I replaced carpet with hardwood because I have asthma and allergies. I love my new home but last month I received a letter from the HOA that I need to remove the hard floor and replace it with carpet. I wrote them a letter explaining my condition and also provided a letter from my doctor stating that I do have asthma and allergies but I received a letter that the board voted not to grant an exception and I have to replace the floor with carpet otherwise they would enter my home, replace the flooring, and charge me for it. Can July 11, 2018

they do that? I am looking for your answer and thank you in advance for your time. Regards, M.L., Richmond Dear M.L.: Unfortunately, it seems most homeowners do not read the association CC&Rs or rules before they close escrow, only to find out later what is allowed or banned. In wood framed apartment-style (meaning stacked) condominiums, a ban on wood floors is a good idea, since it protects upper and lower neighbors from noise nuisance disputes. However, you have triggered a Fair Housing Act request for accommodation of your disability (your allergies). That does not end the discussion, however, because it may be reasonable for the association to require you to include reasonable sound deadening measures underneath the hard flooring to protect the neighbor underneath you

to $13 per hour. This ends up being a wave of tax stimulus that’s aiding the bump for hiring in the affected sectors. A potential benefit of increasing the minimum wage is that it boosts the income of low-income workers who earn an hourly wage at or below the minimum and helps them make ends meet. Also, consumers who have more income will tend to spend more which can helps drive economic growth. There’s been a lot of discussion about the impact of tariffs on the employment market; however, the effect has not shown up yet. Costs of many products will increase. Trade equalization between countries has been avoided for decades, however for our country to be treated fairly and to remain the world leader, paying more for some goods, comes with the territory. The United States is still the land of opportunity, which is why so many want to migrate to our country. Find something you love doing and become the Best at doing it. By finding the job you love, you will never look for work again. Janice Gough is a Financial Advisor in Palm Springs.

from unreasonable noise nuisance. If you have allergies, it may give you the right to a non-carpeted floor. However, it does not give you carte blanche. An accommodation still must be reasonable, and if the noise level is excessive, that accommodation may ultimately be determined to be unreasonable.

Thai boys trapped inside the cave write letters to families

By Desert Star Staff Twelve boys who have been trapped inside a Thai cave for over two weeks have written a series of heartbreaking notes to their families. Some asked for fried chicken, while others simply told their parents that they loved them. The letters, handwritten in blue pen and pencil on pieces of paper, were released by the Thai Navy SEALs on Facebook earlier on Saturday. The boys, members of a football team between the ages of 11 and 16, have been trapped with their coach in Tham Luang cave in northern Chiang Rai Province since late June. Search and rescue efforts have been hampered by rising water levels. “Dad, Mum, don’t worry I’m fine. Tell Yord, prepare to bring me fried chicken to eat,” wrote Chanin ‘Tun’ Wiboonrungrueng, 11, the youngest of the boys. The letters are the first messages from the trapped teens to their families. Another boy, 13-year-old Sompong ‘Pong’ Jaiwong, put on a brave face: “Dear Mum and Dad, I love you. Don’t worry, I’m safe. Love you all.” Nattawut ‘Tle’ Takamsai,

14, bravely assured his family that he can take care of himself; while Ekkarat ‘Bill’ Wongsookchan, 14, promised his parents to help them at the shop. “Don’t worry. I really miss everyone. Grandpa, uncle, Dad, Mum and brothers. I love you all,” 13-year-old Panumas ‘Mick’ Saengdee wrote. Duangpetch ‘Dom’ Promthep, 13, called on his parents not to forget to throw him a birthday party. Dom’s teammate Peerapat ‘Night’ Sompiangjai has already missed his birthday party while stranded inside the cave. His parents are reportedly keeping his birthday cake in the fridge. The team’s coach Ekaphol ‘Ake’ Chantawong has apparently taken the blame for the incident. In his letter, the 25-year old apologized and vowed to take care of the boys. “Thank you for your kind support and I would like to say I’m really sorry to you all,” he wrote. Chantawong also addressed his aunt and grandmother, asking them not to worry about him. “Aunt, please tell grandma to do vegetables paste and crispy pork skin. If I can go out, I’ll eat it,” he wrote.

Hundreds of rescuers, mostly Thai Navy SEALs, are working to provide those trapped in the cave with all necessary supplies while pumping water out of the complex. More than 100 chimneys are being drilled into the mountain to reach the team, rescue operation chief Narongsak Osottanakorn said on Saturday. “Some [of the chimneys] are as deep as 400 meters... but they still cannot find their location yet,” he added. According to Osottanakorn, current conditions of water, air and

the children’s health are still “most suitable” for evacuation. In the meantime, oxygen levels have fallen inside the cave complex. Every inhalation means more oxygen is taken from the cave pockets and every exhalation means more carbon dioxide. “When oxygen in our blood is low, more carbon dioxide will enter the blood stream. If it reaches a certain level, it could harm our body, no matter how much oxygen there is in the air,” Osottanakorn said. The operation was overshadowed by the death

of a former Marine who died from lack of oxygen after bringing much-needed gas supplies to the group on Thursday. The 38-year-old rescuer is said to have lost consciousness on the return dive as he apparently did not have enough oxygen for himself The large-scale rescue efforts are being carried out amid intense media attention and public interest. On Friday, Tesla founder Elon Musk said he was sending teams from his SpaceX company and Boring Co. engineering firm, which is developing tunneling systems.

By Desert Star Staff BOSTON – While the Justice Department asks for more time to reunite children and parents separated at the southern U.S. border, it was red tape and bureaucracy that delayed reuniting a 31-year-old Guatemalan mother and her 8-year-old daughter seeking refugee status in Massachusetts. It took 55 days to reunite Angelica GonzalezGarcia with her daughter on Thursday at Logan International Airport in Boston. Attorney Susan Church says it took “a herculean effort” to reunite them. “The hope is always the fact that so many people joined together to help this one family, and I suspect similar group efforts are

happening around the country,” Church states. “It’s just absolutely infuriating that it takes such extensive use of resources to reunite a mother with her child.” Meanwhile, officials are scrambling to pair children with parents. The Trump administration maintains the court mandate for reuniting all children under age five with their parents by July 10 – and all other children by July 26 – isn’t enough time to verify and vet each parent. But according to Church, the delay in the GonzalezGarcia case was due to the government’s inefficient fingerprint verification process. Gonzalez-Garcia and her daughter were separated at the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona, and sent to different

parts of the country. Church says authorities kept putting off appointments to verify the mother’s and daughter’s fingerprints. “The delay is being caused by these fingerprints that the Office of Refugee Resettlement requires the parents to take before their children are returned,” Church points out. “However, all the parents have had their fingerprints taken already at the border.” In Congress, Rep. Katherine Clark of Massachusetts, who worked to help reunite the family, described the reunion as “heart-wrenching,” and said, “We know there are just under 3,000 more like her who are still waiting.”

get out. But we will have a psychiatrist to evaluate them,” he said, while stressing that the boys are “happy and smiling.” Some of the children rescued even had a typical kid’s request at the hospital after being trapped without food for so long – bread with chocolate spread. They

were, of course, granted it. The boys have so far only been allowed to see their parents through the glass of a quarantined room, due to the risk of infection. They will likely be kept in the hospital for a week to undergo tests, officials said on Tuesday. July 11, 2018

Make an impact in your community I

FAMILY FEATURES

nspiration to give back to your community can come from any number of places, from a personal desire to make a difference to fulfilling a graduation requirement for community service hours. No matter the reason or the origin, chances are strong that you can make an impact. Giving back may be as simple as writing a check to an organization that works to further a mission you care deeply about. Or it may mean lending a hand to put on a fundraising event in your community. Perhaps you have a skill or talent you can share with others in the name of a good cause. If you’re committed to contributing to your community in a meaningful way, consider one of these ideas to improve the lives of those around you:

Spend Time with the Elderly

Seniors often hold wisdom, knowledge and experience that younger generations have yet to accumulate. Yet, as they age, a community’s oldest residents are often left alone. These days it’s less common for family members to live near one another, so “adopting” an elderly resident down the street or at the local senior housing center is a way to help monitor his or her well-being and ensure personal ties to the community are maintained. Not only can this provide a valuable service for an elderly person and his or her family, it may bring you great personal satisfaction as you learn about the community’s history through the eyes of someone who saw it evolve firsthand.

Donate to Nonprofits

If you’re concerned your budget doesn’t stretch far enough to make a meaningful cash contribution, there are plenty of other ways you can donate to nonprofit organizations in your community. Volunteer hours or even gently used items like office furniture or supplies are often in high demand. You can even donate by helping your favorite nonprofit uncover new funding opportunities. For example, the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, provides farmers an opportunity to help a nonprofit of their choice. Eligible farmers can enroll in the program for a chance to direct a donation to a local eligible nonprofit organization. Since 2010, the program has shown a commitment to strengthening farming communities by awarding more than $29 million to nonprofits, supporting food banks, ag youth organizations, supplying essentials for the needy and acquiring life-saving emergency response equipment.

Be a Mentor

Much as you can gain valuable wisdom from elderly residents, you also likely have your own knowledge that can benefit others in your community. Consider the areas where you excel and explore how your community can benefit. You might put your athletic talents to use coaching a youth sports team, teach scouts a skill for advancement or lend your experience as a human resources professional to an organization that helps disadvantaged individuals improve their employment opportunities. If you’re good with numbers, maybe volunteering as a financial advisor to a local nonprofit board is worth considering.

Help Create Future Leaders

If the future vitality and well-being of your community is a priority, your giving may involve creating opportunities for future generations. Programs like America’s Farmers Grow Ag Leaders, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, encourage rural youth to become the next generation of ag leaders by awarding scholarships to support their pursuit of higher education in ag-related fields of study. The scholarships are administered by the National FFA Organization, but students do not have to be FFA members to apply. Since 2014, the program has awarded more than $2 million in scholarships for students looking to study ag-related fields after high school.

Plant Flower Beds www.desertstarweekly.com

July 11, 2018

Making a community better isn’t always about dollars and cents. Simply making your hometown a more enjoyable place to be is a reward you can enjoy along with your neighbors. Special beautification projects such as creating and maintaining flower beds in public spaces can help create a more welcoming, friendly environment. Other ideas include community cleanup initiatives and organizing groups to help with yardwork for those who are physically unable.

Get Involved in Schools

Nearly every school district can benefit from added resources to support youth education. You may be able to help your school secure funding for a special initiative through a program such as America's Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, which allows farmers to nominate local public school districts to compete for merit-based STEM grants. Nominated schools have the opportunity to apply for a grant to fund projects that enhance science, technology, engineering and math education in their districts. Since 2011, more than $16 million has been awarded to over 900 rural school districts. Farmers can find more ways to give back to their communities along with program information and official rules at AmericasFarmers.com.

Jurors Convict Man Accused Of Staging Girlfriend’s Suicide

KMIR Kitty Alvarado A man was convicted Tuesday of shooting his girlfriend in the head at their Palm Springs apartment and staging the scene to look like she took her own life. Jurors deliberated about two hours before finding 35-year-old James Beushausen guilty of murder, rejecting the defense’s account that she was driven to suicide because she was suffering from a painful illness and was upset about her boyfriend’s alcoholism. In her closing argument on Monday, Assistant District Attorney Michelle Paradise told jurors that the 27-year-old victim, Jaylynn Amanda Keith, had displayed no suicidal tendencies and had told friends and family that she feared that her boyfriend might harm her. Keith’s body was found on March 15, 2017, in the bathtub of the Belardo Road apartment the couple shared. She died from a single gunshot wound to the center of her forehead. A 9mm pistol was found beneath her body, which Palm Springs investigators determined was inconsistent with the theory that Keith shot herself, based on the positioning of her body in the tub. Beushausen told investigators that he’d moved her body and the gun after waking up and finding her in the bathroom. Paradise told jurors that Beushausen rendered Keith unconscious, placed her into the tub, then shot her while shielding himself from blood spatter behind a shower curtain.

The defendant told investigators, as well as arriving emergency personnel and a 911 dispatcher, that Keith had shot herself while he was asleep, but also made several claims that he thought she slipped and hit her head, according to Paradise, who said that a head wound discovered by investigators occurred independently of the gunshot and hinted that Keith may have been assaulted in order to stage an apparent suicide. The prosecutor questioned Beushausen’s statements regarding the morning of the shooting, particularly his account that he spent between 10 and 20 minutes searching for Keith after being roused from sleep by a “popping” sound that he believed might have been coming from their air conditioner. Paradise emphasized that the apartment was about 430 square feet and that the bathroom would have been easily visible from the couple’s bed. She also described Beushausen as “a gun enthusiast” who regularly went shooting and should have known what a gunshot sounds like. Paradise told jurors that the couple’s relationship was deteriorating over Beushausen’s alcoholism, which led him to undergo rehab stints and triggered several arguments between the two. Paradise quoted a Dec. 28, 2016, text from Keith to a friend, in which she wrote: “James has been drinking for the last four days This might be the end for us. This tops it all.”

According to Paradise, Keith had come to the breaking point in their nearly five-year relationship and was going to leave if he couldn’t stop drinking. On March 14, the day prior to her death, Keith texted family members that Beushausen got “psycho on me” during an altercation in which he smashed his cell phone and screamed at her, Paradise said. Keith was going to tell him she was leaving him after he sobered up, and said she was afraid things would get “physically bad” when she told him, according to the prosecutor. In one text message, she relayed to a friend that Beushausen had taken a pistol out of his gun safe, which scared her and caused her to take the safe keys and hide them, Paradise said. Paradise vehemently denied that Keith was suicidal,

and said that even Beushausen told police that Keith had never expressed any suicidal feelings. Beushausen’s attorney, Greg Johnson, argued that a bladder syndrome that caused Keith substantial pain, and was another stressor on their relationship, pushed her to take her own life. He said two internet searches were made on her cell phone referencing interstitial cystitis, one on March 12 on “IC depression,” and another on March 15, about 40 minutes prior to when Beushausen called 911, on “IC suicide rate.” Paradise countered that Beushausen used Keith’s phone to call 911 and was seen using her phone after investigators arrived at the apartment. The prosecutor called the searches “a red herring” and “an excuse to plant a seed because this is supposed to be made up

to look like suicide.” She said Keith’s doctor said her illness was “stabilized” and that medication was proving successful in controlling her pain. Johnson contended that Keith was in more pain — both physically and emotionally — then she let on to loved ones, and described her relationship with Beushausen as the final straw in a rough life that included losing both parents and her home, which burned down shortly following her father’s death. In the months following his girlfriend’s death, Beushausen quit his job and moved back to his hometown of McAllen, Texas, where he was eventually arrested by Palm Springs investigators on Oct. 18 in the parking lot of a shopping center.

Michael Jackson ‘chemically castrated’ by dad as a boy By Desert Star Staff Michael Jackson’s doctor has claimed the singer’s father “chemically castrated” him as a boy to prevent him from developing – and to maintain his high voice. Conrad Murray, who was Jackson’s personal physician and was imprisoned for two

years for the involuntary manslaughter of the pop music icon, made the claim in a video in which he condemned Joe Jackson, who died last month. “The fact that he [Michael] was chemically castrated to maintain his high-pitched voice is beyond words,” Murray said in a video released by The Blast.

Murray claimed Jackson was given hormone injections when he was 12 in a bid to cure his acne and stop his voice from deepening, an allegation the physician first outlined in his self-published book in 2016. Michael Jackson died in 2009 from an overdose of Propofol and sedatives. He

found fame as a young child while performing along his siblings as ‘The Jackson 5,’ who were managed by their father. Murray claimed Jackson confided in him about “the many sufferings at the hands of his father that he encountered beyond imagination and words.” He said Joe Jackson was “one of the worst fathers to his children in history” and added: “I hope Joe Jackson has found redemption in hell.” A French vascular surgeon

made similar claims in 2011, even writing a book about it. Dr Alain Branchereau said Jackson was chemically castrated from the synthetic anti-male hormone drug Cyproterone. After researching the drug and observing photographs and specialists in the field, Branchereau found it prevents body hair and the larynx growing. It also affects the bones, which can lead to a slight frame and big chest.

Prevent Pets from Fleeing in Fright By Desert Star Staff Summer social gatherings and celebrations involving fireworks can add up to a lot of fun for humans, but it’s an equation that may test the limits for a fearful pet. The break in day-to-day consistency and the chaos that comes with festivities can cause pets to escape in search of solace, which often times results in them leaving their loved ones behind. “During the summer months, we tend to take a step away from our usual routines and that can be very unsettling for a pet,” said David Haworth, DVM, PhD, president of PetSmart Charities. “While July 5 is known as a day of high intake for local animal welfare organizations due to the noise and chaos associated with the Fourth of July holiday, even small barbecues and other summer events can cause distress that results in a pet fleeing for perceived safety.” In honor of National Pet Loss Prevention Month, the experts from PetSmart Charities recommend these tips to prevent your pet from running off. Practice effective “stay” techniques with your pet: Pets and pet parents who participate in behavioral training courses can learn effective ways to communicate during times of leisure or stress. Knowing

Photo courtesy of Getty Images simple commands like “stop,” “sit” or “stay” can help prevent a pet from running away. Ensure your pet has proper identification: Microchips are a great way to ensure your pet is armed with the proper identification. To help decrease the number of pets that enter shelters each year across North America, PetSmart Charities supports low-cost microchipping programs in local communities. Whether you use tags, embroidered collars or microchips, make sure you update the information provided at least once a year to ensure the latest contact information is available to those who may find your pet.

Secure your pet’s surroundings: To prevent your pet from running away, provide a comfortable, yet contained environment that he or she may safely explore. This could include a fenced-in backyard during a family barbecue, the use of a leash at a local parade or access to favorite toys for a soothing escape. Don’t forget an ample supply of shade and water to help your pet stay cool and comfortable in the summer heat. Inquire about calming solutions: Just like pet parents, pets can become sensitive to unexpected events and develop anxiety over time. Symptoms may include, but

are not limited to destructive behavior, excessive barking or panting despite lack of exertion. If your pet is exhibiting extreme behavior, ask a veterinarian if calming solutions are a fit ahead of a large gathering. Know how to handle a lost pet: If you see a lost pet, check his or her tags and contact the pet parent. If the pet shies away from contact, reach out to your local animal control department for assistance. If you lose a pet, contact your local animal control department or your neighborhood shelter to request assistance.

HOROSCOPES ARIES

Uranus is your awakener. A great shift in perception begins as you seek more freedom of expression. However, first you’ll feel you cannot speak your mind. Because a new awakening is occurring internally, in your consciousness. You’ll wonder if you must leave all that you love behind. It’s a risk to help create a new world. You, however, have the tools and courage. Rest a while so you can hear the call when it comes.

TAURUS You’ll find that events in your surroundings and environments are rushing you forward into the future. You’ll also realize certain elements of your life are no longer available. All things from the past either fall away or become useful in creating the future. Calling upon great spiritual resources, you single handedly construct the new curriculum needed for humanity’s survival and education. You’ve been pondering this for years. It’s now time.

GEMINI There may be need at some time for a change in environments, work, friends, groups and your entire social circle. You may require a new life, new ideas and studies that apply the astrological and esoteric to your daily life. Change will be needed for

CANCER Following orders seems difficult and you will resist anyone with authority. This is good sometimes and not so good other times. You’ll learn to discern and discriminate whom to trust. Attempt to observe yourself more directly. Notice how creative you are. People look to you for information continually emerging from your experiments. In the world, you are seen as a bit unusual to radical. Interesting!

LEO Will you be traveling soon? If so know that interesting and unusual events may occur, you’ll encounter new ways of thinking creating expansive, open-minded, utopian thoughts on community. Traditions fall away and gradually, over time you become unconventional, adapting ways of being that comfort you. Education, travel, study, religion, mountaineering, philosophy, politics, justice. Which attract you?

VIRGO Shared resources, taxes, loans, insurance, and/or values (also shared with another close to you) may tilt sideways and be shaken up in your

life. This creates the need to rebalance, choosing your own values and finding your own money to pursue what’s most important. You’ll ponder deeply before venturing forth into uncharted territory and unusual relationships. Have fun, though.

LIBRA Everyone and everything may feel unpredictable. You may change your view of relationships and feel you cannot rely on others for things you hope and expect. There could be a sense of limitation, creating a challenge to break free. You or your partner may become rebellious, act in surprising ways. Sometimes you’re on your own. In some ways, yes you are. It redefines you. Reach out. Love more.

SCORPIO Everything in daily life and work may feel like their being taken apart and shaken up. You feel the need to loosen yourself from previous ways of thinking, beliefs, and relating. You also need to tend to health. The years ahead will be influenced by what you think and do now. Disruptions can be looked upon as reasons to create a new rhythm. Bring forth your deep inventive nature. It will save you.

SAGITTARIUS Don’t be surprised should you experience sudden changes in ideas leading to creativity. Don’t be surprised if you’re

attracted to a totally different type of person, place or way of life. Don’t be surprised if you work really hard at loosening any obstructions and inhibitions and they fly away like a flock of blackbirds. You want to become different, become eccentric, playful, more childlike, more romantic. Over time you do.

Late last month, the 44-member Scientific Advisory Board to the EPA asked the agency not to revise or finalize the rule until the board can analyze it and offer comments. If enacted, the rule could exclude clinical studies derived from human databases, impede the development of new science and exclude historical studies. And while the departure of Pruitt may have come as a surprise late last week, McIntosh-Kastrinsky says the agency is expected to continue its efforts to enact this rule. “Looking at Andrew

Wheeler, who is the nowacting administrator and his background, I’d imagine they will probably proceed with trying to implement this rule,” McIntosh-Kastrinsky states. “However, with all rules that are proposed at the EPA and on the federal level, they have a comment period.” The EPA already has an external review body, known as the Clean Air Science Advisory Committee. Its mission is to provide a diverse and independent peer review of the science considered by the agency when establishing policies.

Beatles’ classic cover celebrates Saudi women driving

By Desert Star Staff Students at the Berklee College of Music in Boston have reimagined The Beatles 1965 hit ‘Drive my Car’ in Arabic, to celebrate the recent lifting of the ban on women driving in Saudi Arabia. The cover was arranged by Palestinian cellist Naseem Alatrash and features Syrian singer Nano Raies. The group was named ‘Nano and the 6-2-4,’ a reference to June 24, when Saudi women gained the right to get behind the wheel. According to Alatrash, the recreation is called ‘Rahsoul Say-arah’ which in Arabic means ‘I will drive the car’ and carries a simple message: she’s excited to drive and doesn’t want to get married yet.

“For the translation to the song, I feel like it’s a really simple, funny, kind of goofy message,” Alatrash told Public Radio International, who partnered with the Berklee College of Music to create the cover. “And the main idea is that this female was singing, just got the ability to drive, she’s really excited and at this moment of her life she really doesn’t care about anything else. She’s getting all these proposals from men,” the cellist said. “They are promising her all these things. But, she’s like, at the moment, I just want to drive. Maybe later I will love you, maybe later I will think about these things, but at the moment I just want to drive this car.”

sell to buyers under 21 years old – or risk a boycott. But the Democrats are getting some Republican pushback. State Sen. Ron Collins accuses the Democrats of harassing a local business. “I don’t understand why they would try to jeopardize a company in southern Maine, who’s been a great neighbor to everybody in that area of southern Maine, by trying to suggest a boycott,” Collins states. “I think that’s just not necessary.” A Maine GOP delegation penned an open letter in support of gun sales, including a mention of the gun safety classes Kittery Trading Post also holds. Owners of the sporting goods store haven’t weighed in yet on calls to

change their policies. Collins insists that if legislators want gun sale laws changed, they should go through proper channels in Washington. He sees the Democrats’ stance as anti-business. “When they threaten to boycott a business, that takes away from the livelihood of that business and the employees who work there, possibly their salaries,” he stresses. “I think it’s unjust and unfair. They’ve done nothing wrong.” But with gun violence reform legislation stalled in Congress, York County Democrats say they want local change. Their view is that there’s no reason to sell firearms that can shoot 100 rounds a minute, and they plan to keep the pressure up.

Kittery Business at Center of Gun Violence Prevention Debate

A nationwide move to ban magazine-fed assault rifles from sporting goods stores has ignited a controversy over gun sales at the Kittery Trading Post. (TripAdvisor) By Desert Star Staff KITTERY, Maine – After the Parkland, Fla. school massacre, some sports retailers across the country – Dick’s Sporting Goods, L.L. Bean

and Walmart – stopped selling so-called assault weapons and high capacity magazines. And some Democratic lawmakers in Maine would like to see the same steps

from the Kittery Trading Post in the town of Kittery. Last week, the Democrats sent a letter asking the retailer to voluntarily stop selling some types of guns, and not

No pot sacrament for Indiana Church of Cannabis

By Desert Star Staff You can worship cannabis in Indiana, even build a church in its name, but no amount of worship for the plant makes you eligible to smoke it, the court has ruled. Indiana’s marijuana law is one of the strictest in the country. Judge Sheryl Lynch has ruled that Indiana’s First Church of Cannabis cannot use weed in its service, stating that “the undisputed evidence demonstrates that permitting a religious exemption to laws that prohibit the use and possession of marijuana would hinder drug enforcement efforts statewide and negatively impact public health and safety.” The non-profit was founded in March 2015 on the heels of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), signed into law by then-Indiana Governor Mike Pence. The legislation asserts that the government cannot “substantially burden a www.desertstarweekly.com

person’s exercise of religion” and those who feel that their religious beliefs were or could be hurt may refer to the law to defend themselves in court. At the time it was approved, the law caused an uproar among civil rights groups, fearing that it could be used to discriminate against the LGBT community. However, Bill Levin, founder and ‘Grand Poobah’ of the Church of Cannabis, apparently saw it as a perfect opportunity to circumvent the state’s draconian drug laws. While medical cannabis is legal in 30 states, and nine permit its recreational use, Indiana still holds on tight to its tough marijuana laws. Virtually from its establishment, the church has been waging a legal battle with the state, arguing that the ban on cannabis violates their religious freedom. The church’s set of guidelines, the “Deity Dozen,” states that cannabis, ‘The

Healing Plant,’ is its “sacrament.” “It is our fountain of health, our love, curing us from illness and depression. We embrace it with our whole heart and spirit, individually and as a group.” In its ruling on that legal conundrum, Lynch argued that the church had not thought of logistics, as to who will supply the plant, where it will be kept, and had not specified how it would be consumed. If the court greenlighted an exemption for the church, the authorities would have to make “case-by-case determinations during criminal investigations as to whether an individual’s religious beliefs legally justify” the use of cannabis, she said. As this model seems to be unsustainable, Lynch California “weed nuns” at Sisters of the Valley near Merced, dismissed the case.

sk nearly any person about his or her dream trip and watch a smile appear as the perfect personal excursion is described. Now, ask why the trip has yet to happen, and time and money will be the likely culprits. The misconceived notions that may be holding you back from traveling can feel especially exacerbated during busy seasons when travel costs rise and coordinating vacation schedules with coworkers becomes a challenge. Carving out time and saving funds to make travel possible, even during the busiest travel seasons, can be a challenge. Lee Abbamonte, the youngest person to travel to every country in the world plus the North and South Poles, and Bank of America recommend these tips to travel the world in style.

Book Based on Your Interests One of the easiest ways to make time for travel is to book based

Maximize Your Rewards

An analysis of Bank of America’s over 50 million debit and credit cards during 2017 showed travel and restaurants to be top areas for spending. Using a credit card that rewards you for where you spend the most can help pay for upcoming travel. On average, consumers spent in 2017: n

on your likes and hobbies. When you plan a trip around your passions, it helps you prioritize the experience over the cost. “When I worked in finance, I noticed a lot of my colleagues made excuses about why they couldn’t travel,” Abbamonte said. “I’ve found that booking travel based on your personal interests can help you stay motivated to follow through actually taking the trip. For example, I love watching and playing sports, so I often use that as a reason to travel to various countries.” One area you might be passionate about is food. In fact, 23 percent of Americans say they have planned a trip around a culinary experience, according to a Bank of America survey. Local cuisine also offers a unique glimpse into a culture. “I love attending local food festivals and cultural celebrations,” Abbamonte said. “Just one day at a food or wine festival can give you a great understanding of an area’s culture and people, which is quite literally great ‘food for thought.’”

Have a Credit Card Rewards Strategy Earning points through travel spending is especially popular today. In fact, 65 percent of Americans have a rewards credit card, according to the same Bank of America survey. Yet when it comes time to reap a card’s rewards, 55 percent admit they don’t have a strategy to maximize points. Abbamonte recommends using a credit card that rewards all your purchases and offers extra points where you spend most. “Since traveling and eating out are easily my top two expenses, the Premium Rewards credit card from Bank of America works perfectly for my lifestyle,” Abbamonte said. “I earn two

points for every dollar I spend on travel and dining – which works out great to maximize my rewards earnings, plus I earn 1 1/2 points on all of my other purchases.” For example, think of it this way: Every time you use your card, you are earning points for your next trip. Even your morning coffee can help you earn points toward a plane ticket.

my flights between countries beforehand. You may want to adjust how you planned to allocate your time once you’re on a trip. Maybe you fall in love with a bed and breakfast, and just can’t part ways to catch your flight out of town. Travel shouldn’t be a mad dash from destination to destination. It’s a time to truly live your best life in a new place.”

To get the most out of your travel experience, make a general plan for what you want to do. However, be sure to leave time for exploring charming side streets and unexpected surprises. You never know what will catch your eye once you arrive. “I often visit multiple countries in one trip,” Abbamonte said. “While I usually know where I want to travel, I don’t always buy

Maximize Financial Rewards

July 11, 2018

Some financial institutions offer banking rewards programs that can help you earn bonus points on your credit card rewards. Sometimes all it takes is a quick search to find out what benefits are waiting for you as a loyal customer. “If you qualify for a banking rewards program, you can really max out on your credit card

rewards,” Abbamonte said. “For example, Bank of America Preferred Rewards clients receive up to a 75 percent bonus on their credit card rewards – which means you could earn up to 3 1/2 points per dollar on travel and dining purchases with the Premium Rewards credit card.” To maximize rewards, consider layering your airline, hotel, banking and credit card rewards programs together. Abbamonte, for example, includes his frequent flier and hotel loyalty program membership information while booking airline travel and hotels, allowing him to earn benefits from other loyalty programs on top of the points he receives with his card.

Photo by Shari Lipman By Jack Lyons Theatre and Film Critic Member American Theatre Critics Association ATCA) I’m often asked if I would consent to reviewing Cabaret artists. I love cabaret. The issue is not one of whether I would or would not, it’s a matter of timing. The schedule for my newspaper outlets drive the decision. Usually, cabaret artists perform only one performance, maybe two on a certain date. The time interval is too short for me to see the show, write the review, and send it to my editor, within his deadlines, in order to make the Wednesday Issue. I write and review

for a weekly publication. Believe me when I say I would love to see this cabaret performer or that particular act. The Coachella Valley is jam- packed with talented and gifted club and solo artists of all stripes: comedy, improv, dramatic staged readings, magic acts, monologues, and of course, the singers. There can never be too much arts entertainment in the world of show business for me. Every now and then, despite my time constraints, when the stars are aligned with Venus and the moon… it happens. A door on my schedule opens just wide enough for me slip into a theatre seat or on a bar stool, if it’s being performed

By Pamela Price The 85th season of the iconic Pageant of the Masters, with performances nightly between July 7 and Sept 1, 2018, themed Under the Sun is once again breathtaking from start to finish. While traditionally this legendary event is a series of “living pictures” or tableaux it symbolized much more to loyal fans such as myself. My eyes were opened to this masterpiece of living art since 1962 when the concept of an audience was viewing “living pictures” on stage” was considered both surreal and novel, according to various comments quoted in press reviews. Fast forward to the 2008 Pageant of the Masters, celebrating 75 “Brilliant Years” at their Diamond Jubilee at the Irvine Bowl in Laguna Beach themed “All the World’s Stage.” The magic of living art created by the Pageant Masters continues to thrive as this season’s performance brought laughter, tears, and cheers to the audience as Act One and Act Two mesmerized the audience nonstop. Seated outdoors in the still of a moonlit night, the evening event began at 8:30 PM as ab illuminated view of Pageant history debuted with the stage

framed with The Mission Era and tableaux of an oil painting by J. Henry Sandham, Toll for Sunrise Mass, Pala Mission. This era was concluding with a theme of 8 “living pictures” themed New Waves. This reflected the art and music between 1969 to 2008 by revealing in oil on canvas, mosaic mural, bronze, lithograph and acrylic ocean inspired themes representing Laguna Beach artists from Rex Brandt to James A.Wasil. Churning more Laguna Beach memories with visual verve were compositions titles ranging from The Endless Summer to Pleasures Along the Beach. Nostalgia emanating from the Laguna Beach art colony continues to define a national treasure. The drama of it all brought both smiles and a few nostalgic tears to those in the audience. Act Two began with Monet: The Father of Impressionism before delving into Paul Gauguin’s Polynesian Sunset, as the dazzling narration by Richard Doyle mesmerized the audience enhanced by the Pageants orchestra once again under the direction of Corey Hirsch. His unique talent gifts the Pageant’s audience with magical musical memories. Pageant history reveals that

in a restaurant and enjoy the talent that is available for all see. The trick is to cover the event, review the work, before the artists’ moves on to his or her next gig. Last Saturday, July 7th, CV REP artistic director Ron Celona invited me to see a new talent to the Valley and to watch her perform in her new One Woman Cabaret show titled “Leslie Page: A Tapestry Through Music”. The show is creatively and sensitively directed by Mr. Celona, who becomes the wind beneath her feet as she draws her audience toward her. She’s a wonderful technician who uses her voice as if it’s a musical instrument, complete with key changes

and musical riffs on top of more riffs that are breathtaking in their execution. I was immediately reminded of a young Sarah Vaughan. The ‘Divine Sarah’ could hold an audience spellbound with her unique style, where she could convert her voice into an alto saxophone sound and entertain her audiences for hours with ease. Leslie Page has been an established professional singer/ performer for over ten years. She weaves a compelling musical story of her career to the audience between song sequences. Her range is both vocally broad in performance and in the selections she performs from the CV REP stage. She is a big fan of R & B, sings ‘country’ like an angel, but was born in California. Ms. Page is the possessor of a silky, smoky and sultry voice and delivery that will please audiences and fans of not only the American Song Book, but of songs written by the best of the country’s composers and song writers. Why haven’t I heard of you before tonight? I candidly asked her when we had a conversation following her performance, she replied saying, “I’ve been singing since I was four years-old. My professional work resume has taken me all over the country. In Los Angeles and Hollywood, and NYC performed as a backup singer for TV, and Movie

sound tracks for several years and recently I’ve discovered the Cruise ship circuit for entertainers that has take me overseas for long periods of time” adding, “but I’m back on dry land now and ready for more exciting musical adventures like tonight.” She’s comfortable with her audience and confident in her skills to win over an audience with her talent, style, and her delivery. And she is very fortunate to have the extremely talented musical accompaniment of Music Director Nick Petrillo, who plays piano and keyboards like a virtuoso, with Dave Johnstone, on drums, and Tabari Lake, on guitar. All three gentlemen are graduates of Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music. They’re a very formidable trio of top musicians. The CV REP technical staff of Lighting Designer and Technical Director Moira Wilkie Whitaker, and Doug Morris, Stage Manager make this splendid show a special evening indeed. I look forward to seeing this talented lady perform in the Coachella Valley in the future. Ms. Page certainly made a believer out me with her mesmerizing performance earning her richly deserved standing ovation that she and the production received from the audience.

Bipartisan Bill Would Fund Large Chunk of Park Maintenance By Desert Star Staff HELENA, Mont. – A bill to address the crumbling infrastructure in America’s national parks is scheduled for a congressional hearing this week. The Restore Our Parks Act would provide up to $6.5 billion over the next five years to chip away at national parks’ growing maintenance backlog, estimated to be more than $11 billion. Patrick Tabor, owner of Swan Mountain Outfitters in Glacier National Park, praises the bipartisan support behind this bill as well as U.S. Sen. Steve Daines’ work on it. Tabor says right now, the meager funds available for parks aren’t cutting it. “It’s an issue of prioritization,” he states. “So, it seems like when the money finally does come in, they can only get after things that are nearly falling down, instead of getting ahead of it.”

The bill has support from Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and conservation groups. It would use funds generated from onshore and offshore drilling. The U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources’ Subcommittee on National Parks holds a hearing on the bill on Wednesday. According to The Pew Charitable Trusts’ Restore America’s Parks campaign, the maintenance backlog in Montana is $217 million for roads, trails, restrooms and more. Rebecca Knuffke, an officer with the campaign, says addressing these needs also would create jobs. “A recent Pewcommissioned analysis found that if we fix all of our deferred maintenance, we could support or create at least 110,000 jobs, with over 2,000 jobs in Montana alone,” she points out. Tabor maintains the

By Desert Star Staff MENLO PARK, Calif., Money really does talk, suggests new research from staffing firm OfficeTeam. More than two in five workers (44 percent) said they’d leave their job for one with better pay. Among professionals in the 28 U.S. cities surveyed, those in Des Moines, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Salt Lake City are most attracted by a bigger salary. In terms of gender, 47 percent of women would resign if offered more money elsewhere, compared to 40 percent of men.

Whatever the reason for leaving, employees should have a good exit plan when parting ways with a company. In a separate survey of HR managers, 83 percent said the way someone quits affects their future career opportunities. Workers were asked, “Thinking of your current job, what is the most likely reason you would quit?” HR managers were asked, “How does the manner in which someone quits a job affect that person’s future career opportunities?”

Montana’s national parks have nearly $220 million in deferred maintenance to be done. (dconvertini/Flickr) job creation component of this bill is important. “You look at this backlog of $11 billion and the projects that will start to come out of it, this is in effect almost a jobs

bill, because it’s going to create a tremendous amount of job opportunities for people doing the restoration work,” he states. The Restore Our Parks Act is a compromise bill

created with the merger of two separate bills aimed at addressing park maintenance. Support for this reporting was provided by The Pew Charitable Trusts.

“Employees want to be compensated fairly and feel challenged and fulfilled in their jobs,” said Brandi Britton, a district president for OfficeTeam. “If higher pay is the primary reason for considering another position, professionals should first see if there is an opportunity to discuss a wage increase in their current role. Employers may be open to negotiation if it means keeping a good worker.” Britton added, “When an employee decides to leave a company, exiting on good terms

is a must. You never know when you might encounter a former colleague later in your career.” OfficeTeam offers workers the following don’ts when quitting a job, along with advice for what to do instead: Don’t: Make a rash decision Do This Instead: Think carefully through the pros and cons of leaving. Have another position lined up first. Tell your boss last Schedule a meeting with your manager to discuss your resignation before alerting

coworkers. Try to give at least two weeks’ notice. Leave others in the lurch Tie up loose ends on projects. Offer to help with the transition during your final days. Burn bridges Thank colleagues and exchange contact information with those you’d like to keep in your network. Walk before you talk If an exit interview is offered, provide constructive feedback in a professional manner. Source: PRNewswire OfficeTeam

Said sale will be held, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, condition, or encumbrances, including fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to pay the remaining principal sums of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $217,932.97 If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. 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

Government Watchdogs: Both Pruitt, Wheeler “Wrong” for EPA By Desert Star Staff WASHINGTON – Government ethics and watchdog groups, even some conservatives, are saying Scott Pruitt’s resignation as Environmental Protection Agency administrator is long overdue. During his one-year tenure, Pruitt worked relentlessly to dismantle Obama-era regulations aimed at reducing pollution. But while most conservatives saw him as President Donald Trump’s most effective Cabinet member, he started to lose favor over misuse of power and spending a lot more taxpayer dollars than his predecessors on travel and security expenses. David Jenkins, president of Conservatives for Responsible Stewardship, thinks Pruitt was never the right person for the job. “I don’t see how anyone on the conservative side of the equation, that’s really a conservative – and you know, understands personal

responsibility and ethics, moral values, all those things – I don’t see how anyone could be supportive of him after all the things that have happened,” says Jenkins. Jenkins says now, Trump should follow the lead of Ronald Reagan, who once was in a similar situation, by appointing someone who sees the value and mission of the EPA. The agency’s current deputy administrator, Andrew Wheeler – a former coal-company lobbyist – steps in as acting EPA chief until a permanent replacement is named. Environmental groups predict the Trump administration will continue its pattern of appointing the least likely candidate to head the agency. Kara CookSchultz, director of U.S. PIRG’s (Public Interest Research Group) toxics program, thinks the president should take time to really understand the purpose of the EPA. “Scott Pruitt has failed in the EPA mission to protect

In his resignation letter, Pruitt informed President Donald Trump he was leaving his post “effective as of July 6.” (Wikimedia Commons) human health and the environment, and Americans are less safe today than they should be, due to his poor decisions and leadership,” Cook-Schultz said.

And the Center for Western Priorities has noted interim EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler’s track record of lobbying to reduce protections for public lands

to expand uranium mining. With Scott Pruitt’s resignation, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke becomes the Cabinet member with the most ongoing investigations.

Red Cross reports emergency blood shortage

By Desert Star Staff WASHINGTON, - The American Red Cross issued an urgent call today for eligible individuals of all blood types to give now and help save patient lives following a difficult Fourth of July week for blood donations. Type O in particular is critically needed right now to replenish the blood supply. Fewer blood donors and fewer blood drives during the Independence Day holiday week have escalated the Red Cross call for blood and platelet donors to help ensure hospital needs are met. More than 550 fewer blood drives were held the week of July 4 than an average week as people across the country enjoy vacations. In addition, AAA reported that a record 46.9 million Americans were expected to take trips to destinations 50 miles from home during the holiday period of Tuesday, July 3, through Sunday, July 8, potentially making donors less available to give during the week. “Blood donations are currently being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in – we need both new and current blood donors to make an appointment as soon as possible to help patients battling illness and injury,” said Chris Hrouda, president of Red Cross Blood Services. “Unlike many other lifesaving medical treatments, blood donations cannot be manufactured and stockpiled. Red blood cells have a shelf-life of only 42 days and platelets just five days – Each donation, each day makes a difference.” It is crucial that the Red Cross has sufficient blood supply on hand to meet the needs of patients every day and to be prepared for emergencies that require significant volumes of blood. The summer season is traditionally a difficult time to collect enough blood to meet patient needs as high schools and college blood drives account for as much

as 20 percent of donations during the school year. Every day, blood and platelets are needed for accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or sickle cell disease. Patients like Jacqueline Rogers depend on the generosity of committed blood donors. When Jaqueline was born, she was diagnosed with complex congenital heart disease and by the age of nine she needed a second open heart surgery. On the way to the surgical floor, her family was told the operation would have to be delayed due to lack of available blood products. “Something was wrong – there wasn’t enough O negative blood. They said you can’t have surgery,” said Jacqueline. “I thought I was going to die.” For a child in need of lifesaving blood, such news can be scary and confusing. Thankfully, Jacqueline was able to have her much-needed surgery in the days following, but she and her family will always remember that day when the blood needed was missing from hospital shelves. On June 11, the Red Cross launched the Missing Types campaign, which runs throughout the summer, to encourage new donors, and those who have not given recently, to donate blood. As part of the campaign, the letters A, B, and O – letters used to identify blood types – disappeared from corporate logos, favorite brands, social media and frequently visited websites to illustrate the critical role every blood donor plays. Many may not realize just how important the letters are, but for a hospital patient who needs type A, B or O blood, those letters mean life. While the campaign helped to activate thousands of new donors in June to give—at

this time, the Red Cross is calling on all eligible blood and platelet donors to roll up a sleeve as soon as possible. Eligible individuals are urged to schedule a blood or platelet donation today by using the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800733-2767). Donors can help even more people by inviting a family member, friend or co-worker to donate too. The Red Cross encourages individuals to make a donation appointment and to complete a RapidPassonline health history questionnaire to help speed up the donation process. RapidPass can now be completed on mobile devices and through the Red Cross Blood Donor App. Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years July 11, 2018

of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements. All donors needed – especially type O blood donors All blood types are needed to help ensure a sufficient blood supply is available for patients – especially type O negative and positive donors. • Type O negative is the universal blood type and what emergency room personnel reach for when there is no time to determine the blood type of patients in the most serious situations. • Type O positive is the most common blood type and can be transfused to Rh-positive patients of any blood type. Eligible donors with types O negative and positive are urged to make a Power Red donation, where available. Power Red donors give a concentrated dose of red blood cells during a single donation, allowing them to maximize their impact. http://www.redcross. org Source: PRNewswire/ American Red Cross

It’s poignantly sung by Mr. Wahhab and Ms. Schmelling at the finale called “Grow Old With You”, written by Mr. Sandler and Tim Herlihy. As lovely as it is, one song does not, however, make for a memorable musical production no matter how hard everyone tries. Also, the off-stage orchestra needs to ratchet down at least two levels so we can hear and appreciate the

dialogue and understand the lyrics, as well as reduce the dialogue delivery from warpspeed to something closer to traditional speech patterns. There are twenty-five cast members working hard to please. “The Wedding Singer”, will no doubt, resonate with younger audiences more easily than with their parents and grandparents tastes. Helping to tell “The Wedding Singer” story are: Alisha Bates as Holly; Leslie Benjamin as Angie; Elissa Landi as Rosie; Cameron Merrihew as Glen; Keith T. Nielsen as

George; Christian Quevedo as Sammy; , and Tessa Walker as Linda, along with sixteen performers in the ensemble. The orchestra, led by Music Director Jaci Davis on piano features: David Bronson on drums, John Pagels on guitar, and Bill Saitta on Bass. “The Wedding Singer” directed and choreographed by Anthony Nannini, performs at the Palm Canyon Theatre through July 15, 2018.
