Who’s the Next Mayor? John-Paul Valdez, Yvonne Parks and Adam Sanchez are in the running for mayor of Desert Hot Springs during the municipal election on Nov. 5.

Desert Hot Springs Candidates Express Faith in City’s Potential, Need to Attract Business

By Dean Lamanna DESERT HOT SPRINGS – Three passionate proponents of this city, Yvonne Parks, Adam Sanchez and John-Paul Valdez, are in the running for mayor during the municipal election here on Nov. 5. Incumbent Yvonne Parks, a 19-year resident of the city, is seeking her fourth term as mayor. Highly active in her community

virtually from the start, she recalled her very first bid for office (a city council position) in 2003. “I’d never thought of running for office,” Parks said. “I thought I could contribute effectively on a volunteer basis in organizations and so forth. But someone suggested I run, so I did. And I lost—by just 35 votes.” She managed to snag a city council position in 2005 before

winning the mayoral seat in 2007. Adam Sanchez, a 16-year Desert Hot Springs resident, has served on the city council for one and a half years. He worked for City Hall previously and has been involved in various commissions and committees, including planning, parks and recreation, and cultural affairs, and he served as president of the Rotary Club. In addition to a stint with the

Palm Springs Mod Squad

Palm Springs Youth Center, the community-driven Sanchez spent 10 years with the Boys and Girls Club in Desert Hot Springs. Four years ago, he began working for the Coachella Valley Unified School District as an educator, where he works with students through the AmeriCorps program. John-Paul Valdez comes from a background in banking, high finance and international

corporate marketing — including work for Wells Fargo, Wachovia Securities and General Motors (in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Spain and Portugal). Fluent in four languages, he serves on the finance committee for Desert Hot Springs. “We are the city on the hill,” said Valdez with pride. Continues on Page 6

Hitting Debt Ceiling is Just the Beginning

By Kevin Powell I don’t think there is any need to comment on the childish behavior we’ve seen from all participants in Washington, D.C., this past week. Hopefully “we the people” have had a gutful. The argument has turned to appropriations. The real threat looming just a few days down the road is the debt ceiling. No matter which side of the aisle you hail from or support, there is no doubt that America has got to tackle its burgeoning debt problem. That means more taxes and reduced spending. It should mean a little pain for all of us, including our esteemed leaders.

Perhaps one of the best ways to start to work on our revenue shortfall would be to amend our corporate tax structure. The U.S. has one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world. If we could lower our rate to something more reasonable, perhaps that would lead to more companies repatriating profits and cash stockpiles to the U.S. The accompanying chart from NerdWallet.com details the top 20 U.S. corporations and how much they earned overseas and the approximate tax rates they paid on that money. NerdWallet estimates that based on current tax rates, the Treasury could possibly collect more than $119 billion from these earnings. That’s about 20 percent of our current projected deficit. If our corporate tax rate were more reasonable, it’s likely fewer companies wouldn’t work so hard to shift income overseas and more money would remain here — creating more taxes even at a lower tax rate. More profits and cash in the U.S. could lead to more hiring, more capital spending and so on.

Wall Street hasn’t liked companies that have invested their profits into new plants, technology or even new jobs. Many companies who have done that have seen their stock greatly lag the overall markets for the past few years. Companies that have increased dividends and or

repurchased large blocks of their stock have seen share prices rise at a much faster rate. I am sure clients are tired of hearing me say this, but the key to our future is job creation and a highly trained worker pool. We are doing a woeful job at both. Lower the tax rate and provide tax

credits to companies that create new full-time (40 hours a week) positions.

$1tn of currency in circulation is in $100 bills, CNN reported. Older designs of the $100 note will stay in circulation, though any new notes given to banks by the Federal Reserve will feature the new design. The new note’s anticounterfeit tech will not come cheap, however. Each new $100 bill will cost 8 cents to produce, while the proposed budget for printing will be 7 percent higher than the year prior. According to the Federal Reserve that increase is “primarily attributable to a higher volume of more-expensive new-design $100 notes.”

Newly-Designed $100 Bill

The newly-designed $100 bill with strengthened authentication safeguards will go public on Tuesday, the bill’s first redesign since 1996 and two years behind schedule. Benjamin Franklin’s image on the $100 bill stays the same, but other measures taken in the redesign will make verification easier and counterfeiting tougher. The new features - from left to right when looking at Franklin on the note - include an embedded security thread that runs vertically in the bill and is engraved with “USA” and “100”;

a blue, 3-D security ribbon in which a Liberty Bell will turn to a “100” when tilted back and will move up and down if tilted side-to-side; color-changing ink that turns another Liberty Bell from copper to green when the bill is tilted; and a quill alongside imprinted phrases from the Declaration of Independence. In addition, the bill will feature “raised printing” throughout its surface. The new bill was scheduled for release to the public in 2011, but the Federal Reserve pushed the date back given aspects of

the new security features were causing the bills to crease during printing, leaving blank spaces on the notes. In August the Bureau of Engraving and Printing reported that 30 million of the new $100 bills were improperly printed, citing a taxpayer cost of $3.79 million to correct. The $100 bill is the second most common US bill in circulation. As of Dec. 31, 2012, the top three in circulation were $1 bills (10.3bn), $100 bills (8.6bn) and $20 bills (7.4bn).

Cabot Gets Land ‘Act’ Together

Excerpts from a History of Desert Hot Springs By John J. hunt All through 1914, the quest for fresh water dominated everyone’s activities — and it prevented the plans of many from expanding too quickly. The accumulated hardships of life in the arid regions took their toll on all who braved its domain. But through these struggles a mythology was being born. This is how I describe it in my book “The Waters of Comfort (The Story of Desert Hot Springs, California)”:

“A myth possesses a kernel of ultimate reality, some natural phenomenon — in this case it had to do with the presence of the hot mineral water. A myth is not merely a story but a reality lived; in history, a myth continues to influence human destinies. At a certain point, Cabot inherently comprehended this, possibly when he began recounting the early days in his newspaper columns and other writings. If nothing else, his faith alone deserves honor.

“We know homestead entries under the Desert Land Act were minimal, only two percent from 1877-1956, but those who persevered had to make one last trip to the U.S. Post Office in Los Angeles, where the papers showing the ‘Prooving up’ of the quarter section were filed. Cabot draws an amusing picture as he describes for us that momentous day. “‘Promptly at nine o’clock in the morning the grass land office doors opened and we few desert people filed in and stood awkwardly before the high long wooden counter. Back of this was the clerks. Now those clerks were always well dressed in suits and ties, you know, and by contrast we felt ill at ease, because our clothes were old, patched and faded by washings and being dried in the sun. Some of the men wore hats of braided palm fronds, the women had on home-made dresses or ones that had long outlasted the four years.’ “As he skims the surface of his memories, other, less pleasant feelings bob up. ‘You cannot today,’ he says to us earnestly, ‘visualize what it was to live on this desert four years without work and no money, as we did, in those days so many years ago. We practiced unbelievable economics just to live from one month to the next.” To be continued…

Cabot Yerxa, (1883-1965), historically referred to as the Father of Desert Hot Springs, homesteaded land on Miracle Hill from 1913 to 1918, and later wrote a long series of articles about his desert experiences that were published the Desert Sentinel newspaper. Cabot’s Museum Foundation has reprinted that series of articles in a book, “On the Desert Since 1913,” which is available at the museum trading post and on their website. Here’s another installment from the historical book. (Introduction by Richard Brown, Cabot’s Museum Foundation Board Member)

[article 33: february 28, 1952] By Cabot Yerxa About the turn of the century, Dutch Frank and Old Man Coolidge were two of the very few men to be found in this corner of the Southwestern desert. They were prospectors and partners. Traveling with burros and replenishing [their] water supply from widely separated water holes, they prospected up one canyon and down another, climbed mountain ranges, struggled through deserts searching for gold or mineralized rocks. They met with some small successes, but never found a mine of big importance. After many years of this hard-roving program, Old Man Coolidge became too old for the rigors of camp life and took up a homestead claim on the flat in front of Two Bunch Palms. On one of his widely separated trips to Banning for supplies, Bob [Carr] contacted him. He listened to the old man tell stories of the desert, found out that government land was open, notified me, and we took up adjoining pieces of land. Dutch Frank continued life as a prospector alone. He was still ranging these mountains and nearby deserts when we came,

and presented a very picturesque appearance. He spoke broken German with much profanity if directed to misbehaving burros, of which he had three. The best dash, dang, blank, ding burros in the desert, if you asked his opinion. Frank was a small man with noticeably short legs. Two burros carried his camp outfit and supplies, with pick and shovel on top. He always rode the third animal. Frank could walk, I have even seen him walk, but only on rare occasions. Because no matter what he did, he always rode a burro. If only a few hundred feet to a waterhole, Frank rode a burro, and if firewood was needed for the camp, he rode a burro to look for it. When he visited me, he arrived on a burro and left on one, even though the distance was no more than a city block. While making the visit and carrying on our conversation, he sat on a burro. He smoked a pipe, and never the hand-rolled cigarette of cattlemen. Dutch Frank carried his German thoroughness into all that he did. The burro harness, straps, saddles, and equipment [were] always in the very best of repair. His animals were wellshod, and extra shoes in the packs. I have been to Delong’s T-cross-K ranch often when he was there shoeing his burros, riveting straps that were broken or showing wear. His camps were carefully picked. Near Two Bunch he had searched out a wonderfully protected, depressed sand pocket in thick mesquite. The entrance was narrow and thorny, leading downhill from small dunes. But once in this retreat, there was no wind whatever, plenty of firewood, and not too far to get water from the palm trees. In here he set up camp in an orderly manner, with a place for everything. His bedroll, extra firewood, and water canteens always had a fixed spot. Saddle blankets were hung up to dry, harness equipment kept on mesquite limbs out of the sand. www.desertstarweekly.com

Indeed, the quartet visited the U.S. 28 times between 1968 and 1974. Led by trailblazing singer-guitarist Alvin Lee, the genre-busting band blended rock, blues and jazz in ways that remain relevant today. The band’s mind-blowing performance of “I’m

Going Home” at Woodstock in August 1969 showcased Lee’s virtuoso skills on lead guitar and his powerful baritone vocals. Lee died unexpectedly on March 6, 2013, but his final concert performance recorded in Raalte, Holland, 10 months earlier is now available on a wonderful 14-track CD. Featuring a version of the iconic “I’m Going Home” as well as other Ten Years After staples and solo gems, the packaging for the aptly-titled “The Last Show” includes photos taken at that final show as well as personal notes from his wife, bandmates and even fans.

DESERT HOT SPRINGS MAYORAL CANDIDATE SPECIAL Continued from Page 1

Desert Hot Springs mayoral candidate Yvonne Parks Following are key excerpts from interviews with the candidates by Desert Star Weekly. While our transcripts have been edited for length, redundancy and organization, the context of every response highlighted here has been preserved.

PARKS

Parks on DHS Now: “Overall, as far as the infrastructure, recreation for our youth and seniors, our medical clinic that’s opening in a couple of weeks, our new Health and Wellness center — all that is very good. “We’re having some difficulty with our budget. The projected budget is $18 million and projected revenue is $16 million. So we’re behind by about $2 million — maybe a little bit more. We’re looking every month at expenses and revenues so that we can try to keep expenses down. We’ve had a high increase in sales tax year over year, and our assessed valuation for property tax is up. If the trends continue upward, we may have more revenue than we anticipated. But we’ll cut wherever we can. “Something we’re going to be looking at is how much we’re allocating to each department. The way we should start is say, ‘Okay, this is how much you have. Show me how you can make it work.’ But let each department have the opportunity to come back to us and say, ‘We can make it work on that budget,’ instead of us telling them we’re going to make cuts.

very hard — putting 48 miles of (repaved) streets in, getting graffiti under control. You have to make your city attractive, we’ve done that. “Instead of us going to the businesses, the businesses now are coming to us. We feel very positive for the next four, six, 10 years. And that’s how long it takes in economic development; it doesn’t happen overnight. (Investors) like a stable government.” “The last report from the economic development consultant was that there are 15 active projects. Five of those are already in the permitting process, the others we’re still working on. If that trend continues, five, 10 years from now, we’ll have shopping opportunities that all of our residents want and deserve. “Walmart saw, after their research, that they needed a bigger store here — a Super Walmart. So they had to do another environmental impact report. My feeling is, they’re not going to do anything until after the election. They know a couple candidates are backed by the unions, and the unions do not want Walmart — especially the grocery unions.” “Experience shows,

regardless of what anybody says about Walmart, when Walmart comes, (other businesses) follow — because they know Walmart has done their homework. Look what happened at Monterey and I-10 once Walmart and Sam’s Club went in.” Parks on Promoting Tourism: “We have a wonderful hotelier’s association. Up until this budget year, we budgeted the hotelier’s association $50,000 for marketing and billboards. They have a wonderful radio ad for the drivein traffic (from) Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County. We have to take another look at restoring the marketing budget to the hoteliers to promote our city, because they know how to do it best. I believe you need to spend money to make money.” Parks on Reducing Spending: “I am not in favor of cutting personnel or salaries. Our staff is the hardest-working in the Coachella Valley. With the number of hats they are wearing, they’re well worth the money they’re getting. I’m willing to give up 50 percent of my travel, it that helps. “We have contracted almost all of our services because of the benefit package that we have to provide to an employee. California’s Public Employee Retirement System, which all public employees in the state are in, is killing us. They’re not making any cuts (at the state government level), so contracting is the answer. Fewer staff, more contracts. We look at the best-qualified for the lowest price. “(Opponents) are complaining about the code enforcement contract. We had been paying upwards of $900,000 a year for code enforcement. It’s been very cost-recovery because we’ve had an income from code enforcement of over a $1 million a year (in fines). We’ve got seven code enforcement technicians on the streets with the current contract of $750,000. The only way we’re going to cut it is by cutting the number of code enforcers. And I can’t see cutting back on the cleanliness of our community. We have to keep that for economic development and pride of ownership.” Parks on Passion for Leadership: “I’m very passionate about this community. When I moved here in 1994, there were about 15,000 people. We had one street light. We had one development. The city did not know how to work with contractors or developers. “I got on the planning commission. I became an executive member of the chamber of commerce. I joined the Women’s Club; I’ve been a member since about 1995 and I was president for three years. I’m a member of the rotary, the Elks. I’ve been very active in the community and I know that there are a lot of wonderful people here that really deserve a good quality of life. “We really need the team of Parks, (council member Scott) Matas and (council member Jan) Pye to move forward. The three of us have worked very hard on a October 9, 2013

vision for this city. We developed the downtown Vortex-specific plan — with a theater, restaurants and nice apartments where people could live and work downtown — several years ago, and we’ve got the zoning for that. “We also have a Miracle Hill plan around Cabot’s Museum, which is sitting right on the hot water, and that is to have a Glen Ivy (Corona, Calif.)-type spa facility plus a trailhead right into Joshua Tree National Park. It’s a matter of getting developers interested and putting their money where our ideas are.” Parks on DHS Tomorrow: “From Day One, my goal has been to provide a city where our residents can work, eat and play. Our vision statement is that we’re a destination resort community. I want more hotels and shopping — that’s what I’m going to be concentrating on in this term. The for-fee doctors have already started making inquiries, because what we had to take care of our (medically) uninsured population, which we’re doing with the coming Borrego Community Health Foundation on Palm Drive.” “I would love, at the intersection of Palm and I-10, another Jackson Street development — with tons of

when it does, this city will be the destination we all dreamed about.” Sanchez on DHS Now: “We’re in a financial crisis. This year, the council approved a budget of $18 million knowing there’s only $16 million or less in revenue. I voted no for the last two budgets I’ve been on council; I’ve only been on council a year and half. The first year, they had to borrow $3 million from the CVP Sentinel Energy Project to balance the budget. I said, ‘You don’t use one-time money to balance the budget, because we’re going to be hurting the following year.’ Which is now. “Making matters worse is that they put in there that there was going to be $1 million in new development this year. It’s not going to happen. So that puts the (budget shortfall) at $3 million. And to make things even more dire is the operations budget of the Health and Wellness Center. To be conservative, we could probably do it with about $600,000 when it should cost $1 million to run the whole thing. The pool’s not open because we haven’t renewed the contract. So you’re looking at $3.5 million (in total budget shortfall).” Sanchez on Developing Business: “One of the great things that happening right now is that

DESERT HOT SPRINGS MAYORAL CANDIDATE SPECIAL Continued from Page 6 between 16 and 20 percent. So if Coachella is able to get that kind of money from the Department of Commerce, the Department of Economic Development… we need to do the same thing. “The corner of Dillon and Indian, where a manufacturing center is planned, is the hub of our future. That’s where the manufacturing jobs and larger companies are going to come to provide opportunities for our residents. The positive side that we have is, Riverside County, especially with the board of supervisors and (Fourth District Supervisor John J.) Benoit, they have a department of international trade and export. Riverside County is number one in the state in attracting businesses internationally.” Sanchez on Promoting Tourism: “Other than the hot water spas, what we really have to work on is marketing and promoting Cabot’s Museum. It’s the first homestead in the Coachella Valley, and it’s one of the more unique places not only in the state, but in the country. The history there is rich. It needs to be more commercialized as a tourist attraction, where people maybe can go up there and dine and get that whole experience of Cabot’s. “Next to that, we need to clean up the city. We really need to develop a plan to keep Palm Drive beautiful, because it’s the entrance of the city and the first impression. What it’s going to take, and I’ve been working with Code Enforcement and Desert Valley Disposal, will be cleaning up neighborhoods — and we’ve been doing it now for six months. It’s going to take time and effort, but we’ll do it with volunteers. “There’s no other place like Desert Hot Springs — with 20 boutique, unique hotels and hot water and great drinking water. You’ve got tourists coming from all over, internationally, who get that ‘Wow’-ness feeling from the hot water, and it serves as a place for them to kind of get their lives back together. But why is it that we, as a city and a community, cannot bring that together for ourselves so we can be proud and move forward?” Sanchez on Reducing Spending: “First of all, we need to reduce all of the contracts the city has — the total, together — by 15 percent, and you’ll get about $900,000 dollars. We always approve (contracts) for three years, but we need to review them every year. Especially now, when they’re waiting for the new audit to start but they’re also waiting to get the results from the past audit. “Second of all, we need to do some restructuring where we can at City Hall when it comes to salaries. It’s almost unconscionable that we’re one of the poorest cities in the state, yet we’re probably amongst the top five when you add up the salary range for the whole community. When you look at the salaries at City Hall and the police www.desertstarweekly.com

department, they’re way too high. The challenge is, you’ve got the unions here, and then you only have the administrative salaries of staff that you can really go to. “You also have to look at extending the pay scale of employees even longer. At the same time, any new hires will have to be under a different formula…. You have to cut at City Hall first before the taxpayers can even think that you’re in a total financial crisis.” Sanchez on Passion for Leadership: “When I first arrived in Desert Hot Springs, I worked for City Hall for two years as Senior Center director, Community Services coordinator and grant writer. It gave me a good look at City Hall and how it operates. I spent 10 years with the Boys and Girls Club, where I was engaged in the total community, and I’ve been involved in every commission in the city except the Police Commission. I’ve been the president of the Rotary Club and belonged to all the service organizations. I understand the dynamics of the community. “With a year and a half being on the council, that really just brought it all together for me. But what really drove me to run was the fact that I could no longer go along with budgets at the end of the year that are not balanced.” Sanchez on DHS Tomorrow: “We’ve got the worst image in the valley and we don’t deserve it. We’ve got beautiful views; the

Valdez on DHS Now: “The major issue facing Desert Hot Springs is a budget that is not clearing the hurdle. We simply don’t have the money we’re spending, and there are a lot of reasons. People will give you the ‘Coulda, woulda, shoulda’ story: ‘Oh, well, the economy’s down.’ “Now, I’m an economist. It’s one thing to have a down economy, but mismanagement, bad negotiations — these sorts of things are manageable. My professional background in finance and business management gives me exactly the skills that are required to fit the problems we are experiencing here now. And that’s why I’m running for mayor. Valdez on Developing Business: “Instead of taking a trip once a year to Las Vegas, which is what our current administration and government does — six people go to a Las Vegas hotel suite, they go downstairs and shake some hands, and then they come back with nothing — I’d be campaigning every single day, like I’m doing right now. “I’m a known figure all the way across this valley on radio and TV. I’m constantly going, ‘I’m going to need a flower shop. I plan on having more weddings up here.’ Desert Hot Springs has one flower shop and one garden center. I look across (I-10), I see a successful restaurant, and I say, ‘Hey, can I entice you to open a brother or a sister version of your particular type of business in our part of the valley?’ Because once I’m in office, we will be having a

city is small and it’s unique. It’s really a beautiful place to live. But we’re carrying this image of being dysfunctional — where somehow can’t get the city going in the right direction, and keeping it in that direction. It’s almost like we have to apologize for living here. That’s something we have to change. “You can’t take the mayor’s office lightly. It’s a tremendous amount of responsibility; you’re now the spokesperson for the city. And you have to find a way to work with everybody — from the developers that are coming in… to those people who actually represent the community, like the working poor. That’s why we have the Borrego medical clinic coming in, because we have a lot of people who need that kind of healthcare. You have the less fortunate, and then you have the fortunate — but we’ve never been able as a community to make sure everybody feels represented, to engage them as part of the cleanup. “It’s about trying to get everybody to work together. We’ve been so divisive… but I think I can create a better working unit as a team.”

mayor that is cosmopolitan and savvy enough to support that kind of a draw. “And so, because of the person that I am, and having worked at Wells Fargo and Wachovia Securities, and having been something of a personality here in the valley for a long time, I’m known as a voice of reason in (financial and business) matters and I do that work every single day. I don’t have to fly to Las Vegas to do it. “In fact, I’m thinking of axing that out of the budget. They just spent like $60,000 or $70,000 to fly to Las Vegas. I’m like, ‘I want to see the contracts. Where are those contracts?’ To me, that is the work of every day. It’s how you dress and how you speak. What about all the Canadian Quebecois (persons from Quebec) that come here? They would enjoy the fact that I speak French. I’m fluent in four languages, including Spanish. I will be welcoming people from the four corners of the globe in Desert Hot Springs. We will see an increase in tourism here as a result of my being (in office).” Valdez on Promoting Tourism: “The city already is a tourist draw. October 9, 2013

Desert Hot Springs mayoral candidate John-Paul Valdez I tell people wherever I go that I live in Desert Hot Springs. I’m not embarrassed about it; I’m proud of it. “I want to be sure that the branding is ‘The Spa City.’ I want to have an official logo that features the words ‘The Spa City.’ Are you aware of the fact that there is actually no official logo? There’s a logo they use, but it’s not, by law, an official one…. I have since, with the help of a graphic artist, redesigned that logo. “I would say that we have a strong image problem. And a person of my marketing experience, where I’ve worked for General Motors in six countries and worked for Lancôme all over the world out of Paris, I know my marketing. The breadth of my experience can bring tourism to this city in a way that has just not been explored before. Valdez on Reducing Spending: “The city has too many, too highsalaried outside consultants. If we already have a city administration staff official appointed to a specific task or office at $175,000 or $120,00 a year — which is fine, if they’re competent people — then why do we need an outside consultant to come in to do their job twice at the same salary? Now that (former city manager Rick) Daniels is gone, I won’t have to offend anyone in saying that some of the consultants that he had on were simply because he didn’t have that kind of expertise. “As a financial manager, I won’t need an additional consultant to bring me the books to have a look at what’s going on. “As new people come onboard, you simply hire under more stringent rules. One of the things that I’m going to be looking for is, ‘Do these people really live in the area?’ I have a mortgage in my house; I actually live here. I have skin in the game.” Valdez on Passion for Leadership: “When I saw the devastation hit California, particularly in this area,

I was with Wells Fargo, and I felt morally obliged to go out into the community and tell people how to save their homes because there were all these rip-off artists with respect to loan modifications and so forth. I actually left my position with Wells Fargo and took a nonpaid consultant position at The News in Spanish, because half of our city is Hispanic. “For the last three and a half years, I’ve appeared almost weekly on Univision, where I talk about the economy and finance in my second language. I speak to the community directly. If you call City Hall and can’t speak English, if I’m mayor, you won’t get caught with nobody there to help you. To me, in a city like Desert Hot Springs that’s 50 percent Hispanic, it should almost be a requirement. “Regarding the Affordable Care Act, as of today (9/27), essentially, Mayor Parks has said nothing about it. Desert Hot Springs is at a lower socioeconomic level. So those residents who are able to get signed up under the insurance are going to end up costing us less in ambulances and other (emergency) resources. Where is the link on the city website to the ACA? With the program coming into being in four days, it’s not there. I would take a leadership initiative to form an ACA bilingual liaison committee to make sure people are informed.” Valdez on DHS Tomorrow: “Desert Hot Springs has a fantastic police department, which adds safety — and safety does attract investment. The other 50 percent of what attracts investment, and increases property values, is financial stability. I can bring to the table a toolbox of things that will increase the viability of this city by that other 50 percent on Day One. “This city is the rough diamond in the Coachella Valley. And I expect to be leading the way, along with everyone else, in helping it rise to be the shiniest.”

A Passion For Fashion

By Pamela Price The Fall Garden Party at Copley’s on Palm Canyon raised a few eyebrows and even more hemlines on Oct. 5. That’s because Lon Michels Gallery in Palm Springs choreographed a fashion show benefitting the Desert Blind & Handicapped Association, Inc ( DBHA) with pure Palm Springs panache. That meant a kaleidoscope of glittering gowns, cocktail attire and on two stunning models lavish evening gowns with trailing trains; all were ablaze with every color of the rainbow. The detail involved in creating the drama of each fashion is even more remarkable when Lon ( he holds a Master of Fine Arts degree) mentioned that he repurposes vintage fashions when they inspire his creative energy. When Grace Robbins accompanied by her well rehearsed dog, Luke Robbins swept through the garden in her fitted cape showing off the intricate designs Lon has perfected, guests were dazzled. Add to that Jewelry by Alex Hunter and it was obvious everyone was mesmerized by the infinite burst

of design that has escalated Lon Michels Gallery into the desert’s art limelight. Barbara and Jerry Keller with her stunning cocktail dress and he in a smart sport coat captivated the crowd with Lon’s compelling “wearable fine art fashions”, dishing up even more color power. Cindy Kjaergaard of Indian Wells just returned from New York said his wearable art would have been a hit during New York Fashion Week. “Lon’s is supercharged. His dramatic use of color and design translates from the canvas to fabric seamlessly. You never know what to expect,” she said. As for the Desert Blind & Handicapped Association, their next fundraising event is an intrepid one, Dining in the Dark, a benefit served and savored in total darkness which they promise will “enhance the other senses with heightened tastes, aromas textures and sounds.” This dramatic dining experience takes place on Jerry and Barbara Keller, Grace Robbins with her dog, Luke Robbins, Lon Michel and Todd Olson Saturday, December 14th at the Annenberg Center for Health with cocktails at 5:30 PM and org or call (760) 778-8552.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month Ways you can make a difference

Unfortunately, too many of us know someone - a family member, friend or colleague who is affected by breast cancer. In fact, breast cancer accounts for nearly one in three cancers diagnosed in U.S. women, according to the American Cancer Society. Since there is no cure for

breast cancer, much more needs to be done in the fight against this life-threatening disease. There are several easy ways you can make a difference this October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and beyond: Get the Word Out: Awareness is crucial to early diagnosis and timely treatment.

Talk to your sisters, mothers, daughters, aunts and friends about scheduling annual checkups and diagnostic tests. Since genetics can play a factor, sharing your medical history with your family is especially important. Use free web services, such as the government’s Family Health Portrait tool, available at www. familyhistory.hhs.gov, to collect this information and help your

Show Your Support: Beyond spreading the word, there are easy ways you can support the fight against breast cancer – from your grocery store list to fundraisers and more. First, look for your favorite brands that are giving back to the cause. For example, Nestlé Pure Life Purified Water is supporting The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) through its Pink Pack program. Every package of Nestlé Pure Life Purified Water marked with a pink ribbon represents a donation to BCRF, with a minimum of $750,000 this year. BCRF is dedicated to breast cancer research that will ultimately help lead to prevention and a cure. Currently, 91 cents of every dollar spent by BCRF is directed towards breast cancer research and awareness programs, such as one of the grants that Nestlé Pure Life is helping to fund, aimed at findings drugs to prevent breast cancer in those with the BRCA-mutation. To join Nestlé

Pure Life in supporting BCRF and make a direct donation supporting research efforts, visit www.bcrfcure.org. Another easy – and fun – way to show your support and raise funds year round is by participating in walks and runs. Gather a group of friends and family and find a local walk or race that raises funds for an organization tied to research or finding a cure. It’s a meaningful way to get directly involved. Healthy Lifestyle: BCRFfunded research has indicated that there is a positive relationship between exercise, a healthy lifestyle, and breast cancer risk. Among other things, it is important to maintain a healthy body weight through exercise and a well-balanced diet. One weight maintenance trick is to stay hydrated and eat plenty of fiber-rich foods like almonds, beans and apples, which make you feel full and can help you avoid overeating. This Breast Cancer Awareness month, there are many great ways to support causes that fight this all-toocommon, life-threatening disease. Find out more by visiting www.cancer.org. (StatePoint)

Bob Hope’s Golf Club Cart for Sale

Bob Hope in his golf cart. By Bill Marchese PALM SPRINGS – If golf carts could talk, you might hear a joke or two from Bob Hope’s 1987 club cars, which will be auctioned at McCormick’s Palm Springs Collector Car Auction next month.

The cart is one of nearly 600 collectable cars, trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles to pass through the auction tent Nov. 22-24, located in the parking lot at the Spa Resort Casino in Palm Springs.

Bob Hope used the cart in golf tournaments sponsored by Walt Disney Studios. Another owner bought it from Disney and refurbished it in 1998. Moreover, featured at the auction is a pristine1957 Jaguar

XK 140 MC coupe with 6,500 original miles since new. “There is no reserve on the Jaguar,” meaning it will sell to the highest bidder, said Keith McCormick, who has been producing collector car auctions in Palm Springs the past 27 years. With a total of 9,051 XK140’s produced; the fully restored car has had two owners and has been stored in a garage for years. The auction opens on Friday at 3 p.m. and is free and open to the public. It continues on Saturday and Sunday, with tickets selling for $15 for one day or $25 for two days. The tickets include $10 worth of free cash play complements of the Spa Resort Casino. “The trend has been toward more high-end and rare cars,” McCormick said. Investors are finding a safe haven for their money in a tangible asset. The auction last February generated just under $7 million in gross income with more than 450 cars sold.

The auction will stream live via the Internet for three days and people who register in advance may bid for cars by phone. At the previous auction, people tuned in from across the United States, Europe and New Zealand to bid on cars. Four cameras will be set up to show different views of each car as it passes through the auction tent. A special bank of phones will be set up to receive telephone bids. To connect to the live broadcast and receive registration information, go to www.classic-caraution.com People bidding by telephone will have to register in advance and follow the same procedures as people attending the auction, McCormick noted. Bidding requires a $30 registration fee and a “good faith deposit,” which is refunded if nothing is purchased, McCormick said. For more information and a description of cars to be auctioned, go to www.ClassicCarAuction.com.

Hard Rock Rolls into Palm Springs

By Pat Krause PALM SPRINGS – The new Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs held a private pre-grand opening party last Thursday evening as a warm-up (or, in keeping with its musical theme, a tune-up) to its

public debut on Oct. 4. The invitation-only fete for several hundred guests and media gave everyone a thorough look at the completely, and expensively, renovated 163-room luxury property (formerly Hotel Zoso).

Attendees enjoyed a surprise performance by The Bicycle Thief with lead vocalist Bob Forrest, formerly of the post-punk rock band Thelonious Monster, and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer from the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

O U R MISSION:

our mission:

CONSERVATION EFFiCiEnT oPERATions

Refreshments were served prior to a dramatic, chain-reaction lighting of the hotel, which was performed by way of a giant switch thrown by Mayor Steve Pougnet, owner Andy Carpiac of Kittridge Hotels & Resorts, Michael Shindler, executive vice president of hotels and casinos for Hard Rock International, and other notables. Pougnet and Carpiac later gave speeches welcoming the famous brand to the city. “This is an exciting time for us,” said Carpiac. “We’re thankful to the City of Palm Springs and to all the people who worked hard to make the Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs a reality. We’re looking forward to becoming a distinctive and vibrant hotel and entertainment destination on the West Coast.” Among the celebrities on hand were show business legend Carol Channing, 92, who happily posed with fans for photos. The hotel has partnered with live entertainment powerhouse Goldenvoice, owners of the Coachella and Stagecoach

festivals, to bring name acts to the resort and what promises to be a lively, Las Vegas-style pool scene. Memorabilia of famous rockand-roll stars, in keeping the Hard Rock chain’s trademark, line the walls and floors of the hotel. The valuable and historical items from the brand’s huge “Rock Vault” of more than 74,000 items include stage outfits worn by Cher, Elvis and Sammy Davis, Jr.; a motorcycle once owned by Lady Gaga; sheet music by Johnny Cash; and numerous rare autographed guitars and photos. The Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs also features fine dining and a groundbreaking interactive amenity called “The Sound of Your Stay,” where guests can rock out to their hearts content with hands-on music experiences. Other music-inspired amenities include a VIP Rock Star Suite, Rock Spa, Body Rock workout facility and the world-famous Rock Shop featuring Hard Rock’s iconic, collectable merchandise.

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.

The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 29600 DESERT CHARM RD, DESERT HOT SPRINGS, CA 92241 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee`s Sale is estimated to be $225,763.24 (Estimated), provided, however, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary`s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier`s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee`s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. 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. 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 recorderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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, you may call Priority Posting and Publishing at 714573-1965 for information regarding the Trusteeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address on the previous page for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA08000637-13-1. 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.

Welcome to the New 30: Age 72

By art Kunkin (Mr. Life Extension) Using a new research approach, a team of evolutionary anthropologists has gone back 200,000 years in time to conclude that the average human life span has increased more in the past 100 years due to industrialization than in the entire previous history of the human species. Their study states that until 1900, the average life span barely rose at all from early history â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

when the human economy was based on hunting and gathering. At that early time, humans had the same odds of dying at the age of 30 as a 72-year-old does today in the modern economy. Life expectancy is increasing in most countries and has exceeded 80 in several, as lowmortality countries continue to make progress in averting death. The anthropologists doing the study also stated that babies

born today are 200 times less likely to die in early life than if they had been born a century ago. At older ages, the chances of dying now are also substantially lower than they were just four generations ago. The researchers estimated that human society has existed for about 8,000 human generations. The study, done by anthropologists working out of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock, Germany, was published last February by lead scientist Dr. Oskar Burger and his team in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences,â&#x20AC;? a prestigious U.S. scientific journal. Most previous studies by evolutionary anthropologists have compared contemporary life spans to those of a previous generation or two. The German anthropologists, however, used life span data compiled by the Human Mortality Database for people born in the 20th century in Sweden, France and Japan. Those are the modern countries with the longest known life spans. (U.S. statistics were not used, as our country has a lesser life span than many other countries.) Then, the researchers compared these statistics with data gathered previously on todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hunter-gatherers and chimpanzees in remote areas in Africa and South America,

staff JOSHUA TREE- Musicians from the High Desert community of Joshua Tree have created a new program to aid and support Lyme Disease patients and their caregivers through a series of fundraisers to help fund research and treatment for a growing, concerning disease rapidly arising in the United States. LYME AIDE has already begun a website and an outreach program to not only raise funds but to educate the public and hold public forums and advocate insurance providers to treat this

rising epidemic that has been questioned for the past 40 years and has been controversially challenged by medical boards who doubt its true existence. Since 1975, Lyme disease has been affecting people through their bloodstreams and entering into their nervous system, causing symptoms similar to Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and is in truth more powerful than AIDS or diabetes. Starting in a village from Connecticut, this tick-bourne illness has been spreading across the northern half of the United States rapidly and is now

affecting people in Southern California, according to recent news reports. Doctors from New England states have been challenged by their state boards and reprimanded over simply saving lives. With treatments, Lyme can be managed and patients can live productive lives. Leslie Mariah Andrews, a musician from Joshua Tree-area band Small Wonder Experience believes that as an artist, it is a high priority to stand up for important issues like this. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mentor and once active band mate always collected donations

assuming that these groups had life spans comparable to huntergatherers in earlier times. When the researchers looked at hunter-gatherer groups who received some western medicine and occasional help with food, the death rate in those groups dropped â&#x20AC;&#x201D; widening the gap between them and chimps and bumping them up to numbers comparable with pre-1900 Sweden and France. Since this increase in longevity has taken place in the last century and a half, this suggests that the increase in life span has little to do with genetic changes in the human chromosomes, special starvation diets known to increase years of life or anti-aging miracle drugs. Rather, it is likely due to eliminating environmental dangers faced by Homo sapiens of old. Sanitation measures that clean up drinking water, regular access to food plus antibiotics and vaccines seem to go a long way toward fighting off death. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what clean water and a bit of extra food gets you,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Burger. The research also suggested that there is still room for improvement and that the upper limits on healthy human living have yet to be reached. Conventional aging theory suggests that the biological machinery should increasingly break down once a person

passes the age of reproducing and caring for young. But for some reason, humans seem to have become exceptionally good at dodging that bullet. Comments on the Germany study by other aging researchers suggest that human life spans may become even longer with insights from ongoing laboratory research into the cellular switches and genes that extend the life of roundworms and rodents. The German evolutionary anthropologists concluded that the idea of retiring at 65 will have to be reassessed as will the social security system and providing healthcare funds. Lead anthropologist Dr. Oskar Burger said that if these gains in longevity continued, it was impossible to speculate what age a human being could attain.

for causes during her shows, particularly the local no-kill animal shelter in town,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is first that an artist who wants to make a difference should find an unselfish cause to support and make a statement. This disease does hit some people close to me and because what they suffer from is far worse than my daily challenges, I feel that I should devote some of my musical abilities to this cause, which I hope could also be resolved with the insurance and Medicaid programs nationwide.â&#x20AC;? Leanka Harris, also from Small Wonder Experience (Miss Guided, Cynthia Manley band)

also believes in helping others for this major challenge, through the power of education and outreach. Despite all challenges known to patients of Lyme, Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, cancer, etc., her message is simple. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can get through it one day at a time,â&#x20AC;? she stated. Meetings for Lyme Aide will feature educational videos and presentations, along with suggestions from any musical talent who wishes to participate.

Refs End Chiefs-Ravens Game on a ‘TKO’ sports By Dan Marinelli SHADOW HILLS – A strange finish at Shadow Hills High School forced the ending of the Desert Chiefs’ 49-6 victory over the Los Angeles Ravens last Saturday. “They’re playin’ dirty, man, they’re playin’ dirty,” yelled one of the Ravens at the ref. However, the only thing “dirty” about the Desert Chiefs’ play was their ability to control the game on both ends of the field. The Ravens got the ball to start the game and were stopped, three and out, in only a minute and a half. On fourth down, the Ravens fumbled the punt and the Desert Chiefs ended up with the ball at their own 28-yard line. Continuing right where he

left off last week, starting running back and punt returner Komani Harper, had bookend scores and another 100-plus, all-purpose yard game (offense and special teams) against the Ravens. Harper ran the first Desert Chiefs play of the game into the end zone for a 28-yard touchdown. Considering the length, and physical toll, of the season, Desert Chiefs Head Coach Josiah Jackson elected to take Harper out for a significant chunk of the game. Harper did return in the fourth quarter to close the door on the Ravens by returning a 50-yard punt, easily, for a touchdown. It was his third punt return for a touchdown in as many games. “Practice is what allows me to see the field so well,” said Harper. “Seeing the field well is like second nature to me now.” Coming off his stellar

performance last week, Desert Chiefs quarterback, Brent Rausch, got into the action early. Mimicking his touchdown stat-line in the first half against the Longhorns, Rausch had two first-half touchdown passes to receivers Cody Kabeary and Nick Lee, respectively. An early-game exit limited Rausch to three touchdown passes. His final touchdown was a 15-yard pass to the player who would, later, relieve him: Gaston Bailey. “We’re definitely trying to rest up guys,” said Coach Jackson on the early departures of Rausch and Harper. “When we get on top of teams, we like to get everyone (backups) in there for experience. We want to have everyone ready in case an every-down player gets injured.” The Desert Chiefs’ defense was good in the first half and

excellent in the second. The only bump came in the second quarter, when the Desert Chiefs gave up a 36-yard touchdown pass — the Ravens’ only score of the game. In the second half, the Ravens’ quarterback threw four interceptions. Sherman Vics, James Allison, Miguel Beltran and Deshawn Carr each had an interception. Allison also had over 100 yards rushing and a rushing touchdown along with his interception. Throughout the game, both teams bickered mildly. Not wanting the banter to devolve into a serious altercation, the refs were quick to intervene. As the game continued and the Desert Chiefs’ lead grew,

tempers on the Ravens’ side flared. Ultimately, the game ended with a 1:14 left in the fourth quarter on a Gaston Bailey quarterback keep. After failing to prevent the Desert Chiefs from gaining consecutive first downs, emotions finally boiled over and the Ravens had had enough. Some aggressive, unrelenting trash-talk from the Ravens’ quarterback, and an elongated scrum after the whistle, caused the refs to call the game with the Desert Chiefs leading 49-6. “It’s good to see that the officials were involved and did not let anything get out of hand,” said Coach Jackson. “These guys get paid a little bit of money to do a

Two of California’s Best Face Off to a Classic Finish

By Dan Marinelli LA QUINTA – “Classic” is the perfect word for the ending of the game between two top-tier teams in California. Decorated in pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, both the Eisenhower Eagles (0-0 in the Citrus Belt, 4-1 overall, rank 47 in CA/Maxpreps.com) and the La Quinta Blackhawks (00, 3-2 overall, rank 118 in CA/ Maxpreps.com) showed up to play at La Quinta High School. Eisenhower looked to get their running game started

early with their first three plays from scrimmage going to junior running back Deangelo Buffington. However, the game’s first touchdown came from the Blackhawks running attack. With both the starting and backup running backs out, Blackhawks Head Coach Danny Armstrong looked to senior tight end Vincent Guzman as the team’s main running back. Midway through the first quarter, Guzman took a 15yard hand-off into the end zone to give the Blackhawks an early

seven-point lead. Eisenhower’s first score came at the start of the second quarter, when alternate Eagles running back Towan Green caught a short pass that he took 50 yards to the end zone. The game was now tied 7-7. At the start of the third quarter, the Blackhawks were clinging to a three-point lead. Eisenhower Head Coach Mike Clark deviated from the safe bet in his running game and began passing more. The Eagles opted to pass on five of their first seven

plays to start the second half. After completing two first downs, the Blackhawks forced an Eagles punt. With 6:24 remaining in the third quarter, Guzman ran the ball 79 yards in five plays for the touchdown — his second of the game. The Blackhawks took a 17-7 lead. “We started off the year thinking (Kenyon) Williams would be our guy, but we lost him for the year,” said Coach Armstrong. “Then, the next guy in line hurts his foot. We were looking around and we’ve seen Vince have some decent YAC (yards after catch) before, so we chose him.” The “replacement running back” and star of the game, Guzman would prove to be an integral part of the Blackhawks’ offense from wire to wire. He ended the game with over 150 all-purpose (receiving and rushing) yards and two touchdowns. Despite Guzman’s effort, the Eagles would not roll over. Their drive, almost identical to the last Blackhawk drive, was highlighted by a 49-yard run by Green. In seven plays, Green carried the ball six times for 79 yards and scored the touchdown. Even with the Blackhawks clinging to a three-point lead, there was a bit of a momentum shift in Eisenhower’s favor. With 11:53 remaining in the game,

Eagles tight end Dave Morgan caught a 44-yard touchdown pass to give the visiting Eagles the 21-17 lead. With 2:51 left in regulation, the Blackhawks had, presumably, one drive’s-worth of time remaining. That forced Coach Armstrong’s team to be more pass-effective. Instead of lining up Guzman in the backfield, he played his normal receiving position, and relinquished his roll to a better pass-blocking running back, Darius Griffin. In just 2:29 seconds, Guzman caught two passes for 27 yards. The second of the two, he acrobatically caught while falling out of bounds. Now, at the 50-yard line, with under a minute left, Griffin and the Blackhawks marched 49 yards to the Eagle 1-yard line in only three plays and 26 seconds. A quick spike to stop the clock at 38 seconds was the last play before Griffin muscled the ball through the goal line for the touchdown. Then, along with the rest of the Blackhawks on the field, he proceeded to skip joyously to their sideline. La Quinta won the game 21-17. The La Quinta Blackhawks look to start conference play, strong, with a matchup against the winless Indio Rajahs at La Quinta High this Friday. Game starts at 7 p.m.

A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE IN OUR COMMUNITY.

Here are just some of the successes Mayor Parks, Council Member Matas and Council Member Pye have brought with their leadership: • CRIME IS DOWN: Neighborhoods are safer, stronger police force, better fire and emergency medical services. • A STRONGER LOCAL ECONOMY: We’ve attracted new major retailers, businesses and investment in our community – this means more jobs. • NEW CITY SERVICES: New schools, Health and Wellness Center and recreation opportunities for our youth. • OUR NEIGHBORHOODS ARE CLEANER: We’ve cleaned up our toughest neighborhoods, gang activity and graffiti are under control. • BETTER STREETS: For too many years our streets have been in disrepair and that has impacted our neighborhoods. Today, we have 48 miles of newly repaved streets. PAID FOR BY COMMITTEE TO ELECT YVONNE PARKS MAYOR 2O13, SCOTT MATAS FOR DESERT HOT SPRINGS CITY COUNCIL 2O13, JAN PYE FOR CITY COUNCIL 2O13.
