Two Classic Auto Shows Rev Up and Roll into the Desert this Saturday

By Larry Jameson PALM SPRINGS – Antique automobile buffs will be waxing enthusiastic this Saturday, Oct. 26, as two classic car shows — Great Autos of Yesteryear’s Casual Concours V and the Palm Springs Air Museum’s Sixth Annual Classic Car Show & Chili Cook-Off — motor into the Coachella Valley a few miles apart from each other. For the fifth year, Great

Autos of Yesteryear brings its benefit classic car showcase to the desert. The event, which has been held throughout the state for more than a quarter century, will park on the grounds of the Desert Princess Country Club, at 28555 Landau Blvd. in Cathedral City, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. All proceeds this year will benefit the Palm Springs Animal Shelter. “We are expecting more than 150 classic, exotic and special

interest vehicles to be showcased on the golf course green, and we’re especially pleased to once again be helping the Palm Springs Animal Shelter,” said Brian Keligian, president of Great Autos. “Food and beverages for purchase will also be available at the show, so come have lunch and make a day of it!” Great Autos also announced that a classic triple-white 1973 Buick Centurion Convertible

By Alex Altman PALM DESERT – In order to make real progress toward a sustainable water future in the Coachella Valley, we must all work together. Cities, water districts, golf courses, farms and families can partner to use water more efficiently — and we must, in order to meet California’s requirement to boost water conservation 20 percent by 2020. That’s why the Coachella Valley’s five public water agencies — Coachella Valley Water District, Coachella Water

Authority, Desert Water Agency, Indio Water Authority and Mission Springs Water District — have been working together for the past five years on regional water management and raising conservation awareness, in addition to providing their customers with the tools and information they need to save water. The result is a new website, CVWaterCounts.com, which offers information on water efficiency rebates and programs, water-saving tips, interactive polls and educational resources

for families and teachers. On the site, a web tool quickly and easily connects site visitors to their respective agency — and all applicable conservation programs — using only their address. “The web tool is the culmination of years of effort and planning,” said Patti Reyes, planning and special programs manager at Coachella Valley Water District. “The valley’s local water agencies know how important conservation is to

(The winner need not be present at the event to win.) “We are very appreciative

and honored to be working with this amazing organization and its members, who have continued to help us raise funds to care for the animals in the shelter while they await their new forever homes,” said Stephen Boyd, vice president of Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter.

THE PA L M SPRINGS OKTOBERFEST celebration was held at the Spa Resort Casino on Oct. 19th. The fest is larger each year and this was the first time it was held at this location. Forty-plus White vendor tents filled the back parking lot at the casino. Volunteers were costumed in blue shorts with suspenders and blue hats. Entertainment was held on two stages with bands playing a variety of music from Hard Rock to Polkas. Celebrity chefs held demonstrations on food preparation. A large VIP tent had a DJ playing, seating and surprise entertainment. CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocate for Children, was the event beneficiary. CASA is a non-profit organization that is there to speak for abused,abandoned and neglected children in the courts of Riverside County. Oktoberfest is a Hocker Production. A Fun day for all.

THE PALM SPRINGS AERIAL TRAM celebrated “50 years of WOW” with a Cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception for over 200 invited guests on Oct 17th. The Tram hosted this reception at the top of the tram in the restaurant area. So many changes have been made over the years, with new trams to an upgraded station. The Palm Springs Tram chef outdid himself with shrimp, crablegs, oysters and delicatable desserts. Refreshments were served and other vendors showed off their menus with small appetizer treats. The Tram ride was a first for many of the invited guests and a treat for those that rode the old Trams up the mountain. The newer Trams have a revolving floor that allows passengers to get different views on the way up the mountain.

Summer Housing Slowdown May Persist

By Kevin Powell Recently released housing data showed that home sales — a vital component of our anemic economic recovery — is slowing down. This will have a far-reaching impact. Housing has always been a major part of our GDP. When the housing market topped out in 2007, the resulting bubble burst was devastating. Few areas have seen prices fully recover to their previous highs, although all regions have seen a sharp rebound. The numbers are pretty telling. Existing home sales fell by 1.9 percent over the summer. Sales were still up by 10.7 percent from last year but that’s

dramatically less activity from earlier this year. Inventories rose for the first time in a long time. One third of all home sales last month were cash. One interesting turn in the data is that sales for homes valued at more than $500,000 jumped by 40 percent. As expected, sales of existing homes less than $100,000 fell. Homebuilders won’t be happy with the recent reports. As I discussed earlier this year, much of the quick rebound in the housing market was from investors, not home buyers. Investors, while a needed component of the housing market, often are looking for a quick return on their money. So it was anticipated that when investors started selling and taking their profits, inventories would rise and sales would slow. This report also isn’t good news for first-time home buyers who were already running into obstacles. Interest rates have jumped quite a bit from last year, although they are still very low from a historical perspective. Most everyone agrees interest rates will be even higher in 2014. As the Federal Reserve finally starts its

tapering program, this will push interest rates higher. More stringent home buyer qualifications will be implemented in 2014. Credit, income verification, other homes owned, collateral, etc. are all going to be more closely scrutinized. Many of these reforms were badly needed because a big reason

‘Healthy Progress’ is CVEP Summit Theme

PALM DESERT – The 2013 Coachella Valley Economic Summit, hosted by the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership (CVEP) and presented by Desert Regional Medical Center will be held at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert on Friday, Nov. 1. The annual conference, which carries the theme of “Healthy Progress” this year, is noted as the most comprehensive overview of the Coachella Valley’s economic status and features research economist Dr. John Husing’s targeted updates on the local economy and related trends. “The event will focus on viable approaches for future economic growth and prosperity in the valley as well as report on the progress of the implementation of the initiatives defined in the Coachella Valley Economic Blueprint,” said Thomas Flavin, president and CEO of CVEP. A variety of elected officials, local leaders, business owners and other professionals who anxiously await Husing’s economic report will be attending. Husing is a leading authority on the impact of the goods movement industry on the region and, in particular, its roles as a provider of upward economic mobility to blue collar workers. Husing’s primary focus for the past 45 years has been the Inland Empire — including the

changing economic infrastructure and growth of San Bernardino and Riverside counties. The summit signifies the continuation of CVEP’s business development process, which was officially set in motion with the release of the Coachella Valley Economic Blueprint in 2009. CVEP (cvep.com) is a proactive, non-profit corporation dedicated to building a diversified, year-round economy by promoting regional job growth in local companies and through business attraction, and by developing a well-trained and educated workforce. CVEP and its various programs — such as CVEP Workforce Excellence, Pathways to Success, the CViHub (Coachella Valley Innovation Hub), CVSBDC (Coachella Valley Small Business Development Center) and ArtsOasis — focus attention on planning and nurturing the growth of new job clusters in healthcare and life science, clean technology / energy, supply chain management / logistics, and creative arts, media and design. Limited sponsorship opportunities are available for the summit, which drew more than 830 participants last year. The event, followed by a cocktail reception, runs from noon to 4 p.m. at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa, 74855 Country Club Dr., Palm Desert.

for the housing collapse came from lenders giving mortgages to unqualified buyers just so bankers could resell those risky loans and pocket large fees in the process. Housing is a key to lowering our high unemployment situation and these recent reports don’t give a lot of hope that we’ll see big improvements anytime soon.

This will put even more pressure on the consumer, which also has slowed purchasing activity in recent months. Kevin Powell has been a financial advisor for 28 years and can be reached at kpplanner1@ aol.com.

the valley’s future. We want to empower our residents to build an ethic of efficiency, to partner with us to protect our water supplies for future generations.” In a typical Coachella Valley household, a majority of water — about 70 percent — is used outdoors, mostly on lawns and in pools, so much of the conservation information will focus on helping people save outside the home.

Residents across the Coachella Valley now are able to connect more easily with their water providers and better understand how they can do their part to conserve. Funding for the website was provided by a state grant and commissioned by the Coachella Valley Regional Water Management Group, a collaborative effort by the five Coachella Valley water agencies to protect the region’s water supply by working together on resource planning and management.

OriginALLY WrittEn fOr thE DEsErt sEntinEL 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 the last installment Desert Star Weekly will be running from the historical book. Hope you’ve enjoyed the series!

Cabot Does a Long Tour of Duty

Excerpts from a History of Desert Hot Springs By John J. hunt On April 6, 1917, the U.S. declared war on Germany. Cabot Yerxa, having procured the deed to his quarter section, heard the calling and signed up for a tour in the army. Like so many others of his generation, he entered a war he knew little about being fought in places of which he’d never heard — and it was an educational opportunity of a lifetime. Cabot probably didn’t know it at the time, but he would not

return to Miracle Hill to live for 20 years. The records show us that he rode into battle with Lt. Col. Patton’s 1st Tank Corps. This is how I describe it in my book “The Waters of Comfort (A History of Desert Hot Springs, California)”: “On November 11, 1918, the 3rd and 5th Divisions pushed into hostile machine-gun and artillery fire, capturing prisoners and weapons, until 11 a.m., when the hostilities ceased.

California and settled in Furtilla, now a ghost town southeast of Indio, where he was postmaster until 1924. In 1925, following another drive, he returned to Paris to study art, and then to London. During this year of world traveling he tramped across England, Ireland, France and the Channel Island, painting and sketching from place to place. “We know he returned to his family in California around this time and settled in Moorpark. From here the events of his life are unrecorded. Eventually he fell back on the one trade he depended upon to pull him through, the retail grocery business. “…However, a new player entered the scene at this point, a developer, and an experienced builder, who maintained an office on Spring Street in downtown Los Angeles. This man knew about such things as geothermal activity and talked like a geologist. His name was L.W. Coffee. In his own words he described that particular day, which actually marks the genesis of Desert Hot Springs. “‘’One day in late November, 1932, just prior to Thanksgiving, I happened to pass through Moorepark (sic) and stopped to call on an old associate of mine, Mr. A. Muller, who was at that time employed as a bookkeeper and clerk in Cabot Yerxa’s merchandise store at Moorepark in Ventura County, California. Mr. Muller had written me on various occasions about Mr. Yerxa’s homestead on the desert where he had discovered warm mineral water.’” October 23, 2013

By Cabot Yerxa When Hilda Gray completed her When Hilda Gray completed her homestead requirements and proved up, there was nothing here for her to do, so she returned to Los Angeles and resumed her vocation as expert stenographer. She sold all her buildings and a fence to me, and I started to dismantle them. I had a nail-puller, and as time was not of value, I pulled every single nail and straightened them for future use. Every day or two I came down with two or more burros hitched to a wagon and hauled the boards home at a speed of one mile per hour, as the route was uphill. Miss Gray had kept chickens. They scattered food. Mice came in to eat the food and for the shelter of buildings. Sidewinder rattlesnakes came in to eat the mice and make a home. It was a happy family. Chickens, mice and snakes. Hilda often killed one of the little gray-horned sidewinders. In cleaning up the barn and yard, I found one or two snakes every day or so. Finally everything was wrecked and moved home except the floor of her main cabin. In this was a trap door which gave access to a half-cellar underneath with sandy sloping sides. No floor, no walls, no steps, no light — you just opened the trap door and reached down for wanted things, or dropped down into a crouching position and then could move about somewhat in almost handsand-knees fashion. It had seldom been used, and here I expected to find rattlesnakes having a happy home-time. I did. One day, by dropping into the sandy cellar below the floor where all was semi-darkness, I killed five horned rattlesnakes and thought that was all of them. However, there was just one more. This is the story of that “one.” In the middle of the so-

called cellar was a neat pile of single glass window sashes 20 inches square, six of them. As my eyes became accustomed to the darkness, I looked down through the six panes of glass and saw fully coiled in the sand under the last one, the largest rattler of them all. So I straddled the windows with one foot on each side and carefully picked up one window at a time and slid it as noiselessly as possible up onto the floor above my head. The snake was fully awake now and kept watch of my movements. The rattles buzzed nervously as each window was removed. When [I got] down to the last glass over him, the sidewinder moved round a bit, the better to watch me, and buzzed without ceasing. When in this mood, they will strike at anything — and quickly, too. At this point I could have, of course, broken the glass window and killed the snake. But a window on the desert is a valuable thing, and I was getting some kick out of matching my defense against the belligerent rattler. The danger was apparent, because if bitten, the nearest doctor was 14 miles away and no way to get there. I was alone. So [I] proceeded with utmost caution. I kept my eyes focused into the dark, so as to retain the full use of them. The snake kept up an angry, never-stopping buzz which had to be ignored; otherwise it tended to be disconcerting. Then, very cautiously and with measured slowness, I put the fingertips of each hand on the outside edges of the one remaining window. With a slowslow motion I reached it above my head and up onto the sunlit floor above. Meanwhile I never let my eyes wander from the snake’s eyes, so as to anticipate any further action on its part. My feet had not been moved at all and were still in the same relative position. My trusty snake stick had been laid for some time in the sand by my side, and as my hand came down from moving the last window upstairs, I grasped the stick and dispatched the rattlesnake, now twisting about my feet. But the window was saved and is in use to this day.

Annual Weed Show Sprouts Anew

Twentynine Palms Historical Society Continues Tradition By frieda noone TWENTYNINE PALMS – The Twentynine Palms Historical Society will again host its Annual Weed Show at the Old Schoolhouse Museum, located at 6760 National Park Dr., on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 2-3. The Weed Show is one of Twentynine Palms’s oldest and most unique artistic traditions, drawing participants from across the Morongo Basin and attendees from across Southern California, the United States, and even the world. This annual display,

now in its seventh decade, features artistic arrangements of indigenous desert vegetation as well as found objects both natural and man-made — desert rendition of the traditional concept of floral display. Each show follows a specific theme. Entries are judged on subject matter, use of desert vegetation, use of accessories, artistic composition and originality. Awards will be granted in 12 categories, with a People’s Choice award to be decided by visitors to the exhibition.

Landmarks, both physical and historical, play a vital function in the formation of a community— and this is a key theme of the Weed Show. They provide direction and structure, link people emotionally, and give solace and comfort. They are the starting points to a future dreamed of and fulfilled. With them, residents set down roots that run deep in their hearts, minds and souls. The show’s roots go back to July 1940, when the Women’s Club of Twentynine Palms invited Pasadena printmaker Mildred Bryant Brooks to deliver a lecture on “The Art of Etching.” Legend has it that the local ladies, ever mindful of etiquette, were deeply embarrassed by the lack of said, fresh flowers with which to decorate the podium and honor their esteemed guest. The ladies of the club expressed their apologies to Brooks, who is then reputed to have asked, “Why do you need fresh flowers when you have so many beautiful October 23, 2013

weeds?” The ladies then dispatched two of their members to gather sun-dried desert flora from the grounds of the 29 Palms Inn, which they brought back for Brooks to arrange. The Weed Show made its official debut the following year, in 1941. Initially held in private homes, its popularity soon grew to the point where it became a bona fide community event. After the Women’s Club disbanded in 1976, sponsorship of the show passed to the Twentynine Palms Gardening Club. And when the Gardening Club disbanded, the Historical Society revived the show. It has been going strong ever since. This unique event will be open to the public on Saturday, Nov. 2, from noon to 4 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 3, from 10 am to 4 p.m. There is no fee to enter your creation in the competition or to come view the show.

MiSSion SpRinGS WATER DiSTRiCT boARD oF DiRECToRS CAnDiDATE SpECiAL By Desert star staff DESERT HOT SPRINGS – Four candidates, including two incumbents, are in the running for the Mission Springs Water District Board of Directors during the municipal election here on Nov. 5. Newcomers Malcolm McLean, a scientist and businessman, and Mary Jane Sanchez-Fulton, a local business owner, are in the contest against each other as well as current board members Jeff Bowman and Nancy Wright. As it did with the city’s mayoral candidates and city council member candidates earlier this month, Desert Star Weekly approached each of the Mission Springs Water District Board of Directors candidates with key questions about civic and natural resource leadership, and where it should be focused. All agreed to participate. Each candidate was given three questions and a limit of 750 words in which to answer all of them. Following are their responses, which are presented in the alphabetical order of the candidates’ last names.

JEFF

boWMAn Bowman on Groundwater Protection: Since I was elected to the board four years ago, I have made a huge difference at MSWD. As a hot water spa owner, I’m passionate about our water, both the hot and cold aquifers. Sewers are what are needed to protect our groundwater. This past year we were successful in getting $12 million in grants for our sewer project, and in cooperation with the City of Desert Hot Springs, we put in sewers and new streets as well. We now have 60 percent of our city on sewers! However that still means we have 40 percent to go, and I will continue to work with our staff to find more grant monies to finish the project and fully protect our groundwater. I will continue to closely monitor

the quality of our water to make sure it complies with all state and federal standards, especially Chromium-6. Bowman on Operating Expenses: I have been the catalyst for change regarding our expenses. We took a long hard look at our operating expenses and found areas where we could save money. This was done by my “fresh” look at the way MSWD was doing things. For example, our Horton Wastewater Treatment Plant was leasing a belt press. I challenged staff to look into purchasing the press and to report back the pros/cons of lease vs. purchase. It turned out that purchasing the press was the way to go and saves us $300,000 over a short 60-month period! One of the most significant areas was staff salaries and benefits. An analysis revealed that we had six staff members who were at the top of their pay grade and could retire — they had enough years of service and were of the proper age. We put together an early retirement package and they all accepted it, saving the district $1 million annually. In addition, now all employees pay part of their health benefits. The staff of MSWD is bright, intelligent and highly trained. Most of them have worked for the district for many years and our field staff crew have multiple certificates (which are required by law) to do their jobs in the production of our pure groundwater and managing our award-winning sewer plant. I’ve heard someone say that our staff is paid too much, that they should be paid the average salary of our town. While on the surface this seems logical, it fails when you then realize that if you paid people the average of their town, then only the rich communities would get the best-qualified employees. We must insist that the source of our life, our WATER, is managed by professionals who have the proper credentials to ensure our water is safe. Also, having a district with professional staff allows the citizens of our town to have a job career to pursue. In relation to other water districts,

our staff is not overpaid. Bowman on Water Rates: When I was elected four years ago, The Desert Sun said, “Bowman has a strong record of public service. He has done his homework. He is the kind of watchdog this board needs.” When you are choosing someone to represent YOU on the MSWD board, you want someone who is involved in our community, someone who has paid their dues in volunteer hours serving the citizens. I have been on the Public Safety Commission for nine years and sat on the Palm Springs Airport Commission for four years representing DHS. I’m currently the president and webmaster of the Desert Hot Springs Historical Society. These are all volunteer roles that I gladly fill. I DO MY HOMEWORK; I show up and contribute to the success of the group. When I was elected, I brought my business skills both current (operating a successful and top-rated spa in town) and past (15 years for Toshiba Notebook computers, managing the nationwide tech support department with a $4.6 million annual budget) to MSWD. I saw areas that MSWD could do better and WE DID. I can assure you, as the watchdog, that MSWD is lean and mean and that our rates are the lowest they could possibly be. Don’t be fooled by any of the challengers who say they can lower your rates. Such talk is totally political rhetoric. They have not attended any board meetings in the past four years to understand what we have grappled with during the worst economic times of our history. Visit electjeffbowman.com to see my results and not political talk. Keep the watchdog — vote Bowman!

McLean on Groundwater Protection: Our town has been uniquely gifted with both a cold and a hot water aquifer due to the location of the town of Desert Hot Springs sitting on the mighty San Andreas Fault, marking the intersection of the Pacific and North American tectonic plates. Both the local hot and cold water aquifers are in constant need for protection — we rely on the Mission Springs aquifer for our drinking water and on the other side of the fault lies the hot water aquifer, essential to supply our spas with soothing, healing hot mineral waters. Both aquifers are threatened in the near and long term by human activity, mainly in the very real threat of contamination by leaking or overloaded septic systems. The cold water aquifer in particular is dropping in volume and needs to be constantly refilled and/or replenished. We must act aggressively to build out the planned sewer system. Work on completing this system has been delayed owing October 23, 2013

Mission Springs Water District Board of Directors candidate Malcolm McLean to the majority of the MSWD revenues going to employee costs which were approximately 60 percent of revenue in 2010 or a whopping $150,000 per employee per year (the last year the information was made public — MSWD website). It is my intention to move decisively to reduce these costs and use the surplus in the budget for the vital task of building more sewers. I believe this can be readily achieved using personnel cost-saving coupled with diligently writing and going after state and federal grant money. Special cases like the Mission Lakes Country Club may also require some form of cost-sharing from the participants. The initial funds can be borrowed by MSWD at current low rates and the repayments amortized over, say, a 15-year period. McLean on Operating Expenses: The main thing is to act now, which brings me onto the second question of how I would control and / or reduce operating expenses. As mentioned above, the employees’ salary and benefits

package uses up the majority of the revenues gained through billing us, the ratepayers. Some tough actions need to be taken to reduce these expenses, including a greater employee contribution to health care, a freeze on hiring and salary increases and moving new employees away from the defined benefit state pension plan onto a more private industry-oriented, and much cheaper to operate, 401K plan, effectively shifting the burden of future pension costs onto the employees from the ratepayer. Another possible great area of saving is in privatizing the running of the Horton Water Treatment Plant — MSWD will remain the owner of the plant but the day-to-day operation can be contracted out to a private party. One of the first things I would do as director is task the staff with obtaining bids from outside companies to operate this plant. This would relieve the MSWD from the expense of providing health and pension benefits to the private industry workers who Continues on Page 7

McLean on Water Rates: I believe MSWD is doing an excellent job at supplying highquality water to the ratepayers. However, I also firmly believe this can be done in a more costefficient manner. By implementing some of the cost-saving ideas I have presented above, I believe the district can continue to provide this service without having to resort to rate increases in the near future. If the district continues on its present path, price increases in the form of higher water bills are a certainty. This is the reason I am running — to force through unpopular cost-cutting measures at the MSWD that will personally benefit the ratepayer, not the water company and its employees, and thus reduce or eliminate the need for future rate increases and higher water bills.

MARY JAnE

SAnCHEz FuLTon

Hello again, I’m Mary Jane. It’s an honor to serve as your C.O.D. Trustee. I w a s a w a rd e d b y Assemblyman Brian Nestande with the 2013 Woman of Distinction in Education. Now I want to also help our beautiful hometown fulfill its untapped potential as your director of MSWD. I will improve MSWD with a water bill payment extension program, televised water board meetings and affordable water rates. MSWD also needs competent as well as compassionate leadership at all levels of operation, especially in the area of customer service. Sanchez on Groundwater Protection: 1. Our groundwater will be further safeguarded once the sewers are completed and old

leaky septic tanks and pipes are finally removed. MSWD received the money to complete the sewers, but then publicly stated at the Mission Lakes Country Club that “sewers are not a priority.” Then what is? 2. All of us throughout the city are paying a sewer assessment tax for sewers we never got. I’ll complete the sewers, even if I have to dig them myself. Got a spare shovel? I’ll start digging tonight, because I promise results… not talk. We’ve waited long enough. 3. And I refuse to let cancercausing contaminants poison our groundwater just because MSWD is too slow to complete the sewers. Our children and grandchildren’s lives are on the line. As a current caregiver and former Coachella Valley teacher for 15 years, I understand how to care about our future generations and the quality of the groundwater we provide them with. I’m also a St. Elizabeth parishioner and I’m married to my loving husband, Robert Fulton J.D, a Harvard alumni. Sanchez on Operating Expenses: 1. The solution is solar. Electricity is what drives up most of MSWD operating expenses. At one recent water board meeting they were indecisive about solar panels for MSWD. So only a small part of MSWD got solar panels to offset operation expenses. 2. MSWD customers shouldn’t pay higher water rates just because an indecisive water board hinders its own decisionmaking powers. This is exactly why we need televised water board meetings. 3. An indecisive water board also motivates outsiders to completely take over our water supply, because their wells are drying up. I’ll protect OUR water for OUR city. 4. I’ll be that crucial vote to completely solar MSWD. This will save MSWD millions in operating expenses, because the sun is free. Solar panel technology is advancing so rapidly that one

day MSWD may not have huge operating expenses. What we save on operating expenses can be passed on to YOU, the consumer. MSWD shouldn’t have to pay Edison one dime when the solution is our God-given sun. Sanchez on Water Rates: Don’t believe my competitors will lower your water rates when they just spent almost a million dollars in legal fees to defeat a consumerinitiated lawsuit for lower water rates. They then proudly posed on the cover of the Desert Star over “their victory.” What is there to celebrate? As your MSWD director, I’ll be in touch with our DHS economic reality and the necessity of keeping water rates affordable. Because I’m a water consumer, just like you. I’m tired of seeing our water bills go up. I will advocate on your behalf for affordable water rates. There’s one thing more important than water, people. I’ve been inundated with MSWD customers telling me their bad personal experiences of getting their water shut off or not turned back on, even AFTER paying their bill! Jacqueline G. wants you to know about her MSWD customer service experience. Last October her husband passed away after a long illness. During this time, and unknown to Jacqueline, she had a water leak and then a water bill for $274.00. She didn’t argue the amount. She just needed time until her next paycheck. She was short on cash after covering her husband’s funeral expenses, Jacqueline asked MSWD not to shut off her water. The Salvation Army gave her $50, but her water was still shut off. Jacqueline is voting for me, so what happened to her doesn’t happen to you — in your time of need. Other utilities, like Edison, have a good payment extension program for peak summer months, when electric bills spike. And so should MSWD, especially if you’re on a fixed income, like Jacqueline… May God bless her. Let’s have coffee at Starbucks. Let me know what’s on your mind concerning water issues. I’ll listen. Let’s work on our DHS future, together. ENDORSED by Assemblyman Manuel Perez. THANK YOU!

Mission Springs Water District Board of Directors candidate Mary Jane Sanchez-Fulton www.desertstarweekly.com

Wright on Groundwater Protection: Two independent scientific research projects have both told us that the biggest known threat to the groundwater under Desert Hot Springs is the high density of septic tanks. I am committed to finishing what we started in 1994, with the “Make the Connection Program,” connecting over 450 properties to the existing sewer system. I will continue to aggressively pursue October 23, 2013

Mission Springs Water District Board of Directors candidate Nancy Wright matching grants necessary to help offset the cost of the AD 12 Groundwater Protection Project, another septic-to-sewer conversion project approved by a vote of the property owners in 2004. This project has already prevented over 782 million gallons of sewage from percolating into the groundwater each year and instead can be recycled and reused. The project has, so far, installed over 27 miles of sewer lines... and created jobs. The threat is much less today than it was; I can see a light at the end of the tunnel and finishing the project is top priority. Preferring to be proactive rather than reactive, I will continue to work on a wellhead protection program that will include groundwater quality monitoring wells that will complement the Mission Creek Basin Groundwater Model and serve as a wellhead protection zone around our wells and work with the local land use agencies. Consumer education is the key: I will continue supporting our public education programs, like the Desert Hot Springs Groundwater Guardian Program celebrating 19 years, “educating people and inspiring action to ensure sustainable groundwater for future generations.” I have been asked to look into bringing back the MSWD Water Issues Study Group, fondly referred to by graduates of the program as just “Whisky.” I think it is a very good idea and I will work on that suggestion; thank you Donna D. MSWD was the forerunner in forming the Coachella Valley Integrated Regional Water Management Plan, which can help both guide and fund the management of our groundwater on a local level and also promote working with the other water agencies in the valley on conservation efforts. Groundwater knows no boundaries, so we must all work together for the benefit of all. Wright on Operating Expenses: I am committed to keeping costs as low as possible for all of us. Our water district has a balanced budget and is planning for the future. We have

reduced the general operating budget by $1 million per year and have reduced employee costs, including benefits, from 60 percent of budget to about 42 percent. Streamlined the district by outsourcing when and where feasible. Applied for and have been awarded a $3.3 million grant for a 1.48 MW solar power generating system, lowering electric costs and a grant for five natural gas vehicles, lowering fleet and fuel costs. We have just completed the MSWD Financial Master Plan to help guide the board through this new kind of economic condition. Last year we formed a Citizens Advisory Committee; educating the committee, called MSWD 2.0, and getting their input has been invaluable to the financial master planning process. We already have or are working on implementing several of the recommendations that will help make up for the loss / reduction in revenues due to the extremely large number of disconnected foreclosed properties, ranging from 850 to 1450 disconnects. The rising costs of electricity and increased regulatory costs... Without Raising our Rates. Do not be misled... if someone says they can lower or roll back our water rates they are misleading you or they do not understand what it takes to operate and maintain our unique water systems. It takes uniquely qualified, highly skilled and dedicated employees and a dedicated and experienced board. Wright on Water Rates: My record speaks for itself... I have been working with you and on your behalf for the last 24 years to provide you with safe, clean and reliable water at the lowest possible costs. With your vote I will continue my efforts to protect our hot and cold groundwater basins for us and for future generations, and continue to use the experience, understanding and knowledge I have acquired about our water district and our water supply to Protect our Water and our Wallets. I ask you to vote right... vote Nancy Wright. Thank you.

Aztecs Snap Losing Streak to Indians high school football

By Dan Marinelli RANCHO MIRAGE – It seemed like this win would never come, but finally, after six years, the Palm Desert High School

started, the Aztecs had gained a tiny advantage. Originally, the matchup was scheduled to be a home game for Palm Springs High School — where the Indians have not lost a game all season. H o w e v e r, due to glass on their field, the Indians were forced to play at Rancho Mirage High School. In front of over 1,500 attendees, Aztec star running back Tr a e Riek picked up right where he left off after last Friday’s 456yard rushing performance a g a i n s t Cathedral City. In his team’s second meeting with the Indians this year, Riek got the Aztecs started Aztecs (2-0 in early with an eight-yard Desert Valley touchdown run in the first League, 3-4 quarter. Minutes later, overall) snapped a Aztec starting quarterback frustrating, 8-game / place kicker Kyle Kabeary losing streak to the tacked on three more points Palm Springs High with a field goal. With an School Indians (1-1 in early 10-0 lead, the Aztecs Desert Valley League, were on their way to ending 5-2 overall) last Friday the game and snapping the at Rancho Mirage streak before the second High School. half even started. B e f o r e At the start of the the game even second quarter, Riek Aztecs wide receiver Alex Castenedas lines up for the snap. (Photo by Dan Marinelli)

sports scored his second touchdown of the game — this time, carrying the ball 46 yards, untouched, into the end zone. The Aztecs were now up, comfortably, 17-0. Despite the large Aztec lead, the Indians would not give up their fight. In the middle second quarter, Indians’ quarterback William Olvera threw a 12yard touchdown pass to Noah McGuire. The Aztec Lead shrank to 10, but Trae Riek was determined to keep his team on top by at least that margin the rest of the night. Right before the first half ended, Riek, who also plays defense, closed the door on the Indians hopes of winning the game. He intercepted Olvera in the end zone and returned

the ball 102 yards for the Aztec touchdown. Even though the second half had not even begun, the 14-point swing had removed from the game whatever little heart the Indians had left. The Indians would score one more time on a Noah McGuire 10-yard, touchdown run. Riek would also score one more touchdown on a 36-yard handoff, hammering the final nail in coffin for the Aztecs. The Aztecs easily won the game, 31-14. “ Yo u k n o w, we’re a young football team,” said Aztecs Head Coach Patrick Blackburn, speaking on the difference between this game and their matchup earlier in the season. “We had a lot of guys out there, and it was their first varsity game ever. Now, they had six games under their belt, and

were better prepared.” On his birthday, Trae Riek finished the game with 180 yards rushing, two touchdowns and 25 carries. Not to mention an impressive end-to-end interception for a touchdown. This Friday, Palm Desert High takes on Indio High at home. The Aztecs look to win their third game straight and improve to a league-best, 3-0, in the Desert Valley League. Palm Springs High looks to shake off this loss with a tough matchup at La Quinta High that has major playoff implications for each team. Both games start at 7 p.m.

Bella da Ball to be Newest Talk of da Walk Drag Star to Grace Main Drag Forever

By frieda noone PALM SPRINGS – A group of fans and friends of local celebrity host / entertainer Bella da Ball, a.k.a. Brian Wanzek, has successfully completed a fundraising campaign to secure a star for the entertainer on Palm Springs’ famed Walk of Stars. Spearheaded friends and entertainers who have worked

with Bella over the years at a variety of venues and nonprofit functions, the group launched the campaign in March — and with generous support from the Palm Springs community and beyond, secured the necessary funding by the end of May. The unveiling of the star will be held during a public ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 9 at 4 p.m. in

downtown Palm Springs, in front of Azul, located at 369 N. Palm Canyon Dr. (azultapaslounge. com). In addition to a series of private receptions for donors to the campaign, the unveiling of the star will also be celebrated with an evening musical performance at 7:30 p.m. at Azul, free and open to the public. “We are absolutely delighted at the outpouring of support during this campaign effort,” says Doug Graham, a local

Is PQQ Really an Immortality Pill?

By Art Kunkin (Mr. Life Extension) At the end of last week’s column, we promised to not only return to the question of how Moses lived as long as he did (Genesis reports that “Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died; his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated”), but how “Noah is said to have lived for 500 years, Methuselah to 969 and Lamech to 779.”

As long-time readers of this column know, I have speculated here in the past that these biblical persons actually may have lived that long because of a greater than present, but still not extreme, radioactive energy background in their environment. I have even made the strange suggestion that the energy level of the soil in the legendary Garden of Eden may have been so different from present soil levels that the

apples produced by the tree that grew there was such that the mitochondria in its fruit possibly transmitted longevity to those who ate it. I based those strange speculations on scientific research I have done since 1980 on the role played by mitochondria in living cells. Mitochondria are very tiny organelles, similar to bacteria in structure, which are in every living cell and provide a chemical called ATP to the cells in which they reside. This ATP (adenosine triphosphate) contains three (tri) radioactive phosphorous molecules, one of which breaks down to provide energy to the living cell which the cell then uses to perform its specific function. When the mitochondria die, the lack of ATP causes the cell itself to die. This process of cell death eventually, I believe, results in the aging and death of the entire organism. In my research I have learned that the mitochondria get their energy from free radioactive

electrons in the food we eat and in the air we breathe. We live in a sea of radioactivity similar to the way in which fish live in water. My theory, considerably simplified here because of space limitations, is that there just isn’t enough energy out there for the mitochondria to survive longer than they actually do. This, then, is the idea behind my using a radioactive mineral to prepare special “magic” apples that, when eaten (one apple each week) provides enough additional radioactivity to account for the fact that I have considerably outlived my parents and am now 85 years old in a body that doctors have told me is thirty years biologically younger than my actual chronological age. I suspect, therefore, that the radioactivity of biblical times may have been high enough to result in the longevity of Moses, Noah and Methuselah. This brings me to PQQ, the substance mentioned in the headline of this column. If you haven’t heard of it already, you will because multi-millions of dollars are presently being invested into a promotional campaign for its sale to the public as a magical pill for achieving longevity. The basic fact is that in 2010, researchers at the University of California at Davis released a peer-reviewed publication showing that PQQ promotes “the spontaneous generation of new mitochondria within aging cells, a process known as mitochondrial biogenesis.” PQQ not only has implications for producing greatly increased longevity but has been shown in a small number of studies to turn on genes that protect memory and other brain functions in humans. There are hints that PQQ can cure or ameliorate symptoms of such feared problems as Parkinson’s disease, brain strokes, spinal cord injuries, etc. However, problems exist. The PQQ bandwagon is still so new that medical authorities are

not entirely agreed that it is as wonderful as touted. Some, for example, call the substance a vitamin. Others disagree. My own knowledge of mitochondria suggests that there might be a placebo aspect whereby the organelle is influenced by the mind to act one way or another depending on the spiritual abilities of a person. This would mean that ingestion of PQQ might not work as well in some people as in some others. One otherwise reputable medical doctor is already extravagantly calling PQQ a “God-Given Power” in beginning internet advertisements for his own packaging of a possibly overpriced PQQ compound. The unfortunate fact is that the existing commercialism and greed of the medical industry may turn an important medical discovery into an unregulated, over-priced and possibly mismanaged medical horror. This article has been prepared, sketchy as it is, so the readers of this publication are informed enough not to be caught up in what may become a huge medical scam. PQQ, incidentally, is shorthand for Pyrroloquinoline quinone. It was evidently found in bacteria in 1964 but named more recently. The online Wikipedia entry for it very thorough and interesting, although very technical — even listing dozens of the actual scientific research papers. Google “Wikipedia PQQ” to read this article. You might even try “Wikipedia Mitochondria.” Art Kunkin is an 85-years young journalist who, in 1964, founded the alternative newspaper Los Angeles Free Press and later became president of the Philosophical Research Society.

NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE YOU ARE IN DEFAULT UNDER A DEED OF TRUST DATED 4/2/2008. UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. A public auction sale to the highest bidder for cash, cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, or savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state will be held by the duly appointed trustee as shown below, of all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by the trustee in the hereinafter described property under and pursuant to a Deed of Trust described below. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust, with interest and late charges thereon, as provided in the note(s), advances, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, interest thereon, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee for the total amount (at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale) reasonably estimated to be set forth below. The amount may be greater on the day of sale.

Sixth Street, Corona, California 92881. Estimated amount of unpaid balance and other charges: $198,898.35 Note: Because the Beneficiary reserves the right to bid less than the total debt owed, it is possible that at the time of the sale the opening bid may be less than the total debt owed.

If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 848-9272 or visit this Internet Web site www.elitepostandpub.com, using the file number assigned to this case 13-23706. 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.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Carrieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Remake is Tele-pathetic film

By Dean Lamanna Some will argue against comparing movie remakes to the originals. But when the main reason for a remakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existence is easily marketed name recognition, comparisons are fair game. And when the new version tries to ape the old one right down to some identical shots, well, the filmmakers are asking for it. Such is the case â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carrie,â&#x20AC;? a weak reboot of the fright-filled hit released in 1976. Bumped up to the present, the tale of high school bullying and horror predictably deploys new tools of torment like smartphones and post-Me Decade digital special FX. Too bad that suspense, scares and a solid framework for this latter-day retelling have been overlooked, making this an enterprise without a point. Julianne Moore receives topbilling as the religiously fervent working-class mom Margaret White and ChloĂŤ Grace Moretz is her daughter, the titular teen outcast. Both are strong actors, but in these respective roles they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold a candle to the haunting, Oscar-nominated 1976 turns by Piper Laurie and Sissy Spacek.

Spacekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carrie White memorably conveyed the essential ugly-ducklingness and troubled inner life that baited victimization by her peers; it perhaps helped that Spacek was in her mid-20s when she played the teenage part, enabling her to add adult-perspective nuance to her performance. The Carrie portrayed by Moretz, who in real life is about the same age as the character, is a shy though notunattractive student who, yeah, has been raised by a cray-cray parent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but she never fully gets us on her side before she discovers self-empowerment through her hellish gift of telekinesis. Director Kimberly Peirce (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boys Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Cryâ&#x20AC;?) is a director of proven talent; this film looks fresh and professional when it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cribbing visuals from â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Exorcist,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poltergeistâ&#x20AC;? and, of course, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carrieâ&#x20AC;? 1976. Yet whereas in the first movie director Brian De Palma surrounded Carrie with an edgy, colorful ensemble of young players, the only supporting standout here is Portia Doubleday in the harlotesque role of Chris Hargensen, Carrieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief nemesis (limned earlier by Nancy Allen). De Palma also presented â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carrie,â&#x20AC;? based on Stephen Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s novel, as a lyrical, dreamlike,

Carrie White (ChloĂŤ Grace Moretz) turns prom-icidal after getting pranked in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carrie.â&#x20AC;? (Courtesy of MGM/Screen Gems) often painfully subjective revenge fantasy laced with high school satire and resonant pathos (plus a few well-placed shocks). Peirce takes a more objective, straightforward approach that dulls instead of lulls and works against suspension of disbelief â&#x20AC;&#x201D; shallowly tracing a plotline 90 percent of the audience already knows, thanks to its indelible imprint on pop culture left by Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bestseller and De Palmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 37-year-old screen adaptation.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big problem. Another is timing: After more than a decade of headline-making school massacres, the idea of staging a prom night slaughter as movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;entertainmentâ&#x20AC;? is tasteless in the now â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even for this genre. Peirce seems uneasily aware of this, and she pulls enough punches during Carrieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s climactic supernatural payback that it feels defanged, if not plain botched. Ultimately, by asking us to buy into an alternative present

populated by youthful characters who â&#x20AC;&#x201D; raised on cable TV, home video, Netflix, YouTube and perhaps even their parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dusty pile of King paperbacks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; somehow donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how this iconic saga theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re caught up in will end, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carrieâ&#x20AC;? 2013 becomes little more than a silly, stubbornly anti-meta anachronism.

recognizing the importance of being prepared to survive and recover when â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not if â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they happen.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is gratifying to the American Red Cross and all of our partners that more than 9.5 million people registered for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Great California Shake Out,â&#x20AC;? said Paul Schulz, CEO of the American Red Cross Los

Angeles Region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This proves to us that we are on the right track and it inspires us to work even harder to ensure our communities are prepared to survive and recover when a major earthquake strikes, because we all know that the real disaster is not being prepared.â&#x20AC;? For more info, visit shakeout.org.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carrieâ&#x20AC;? is rated R for violence, adult situations and sequel-baiting stupidity.

Californians Shake Booties for Readiness Oct. 17 ShakeOut Quake Drill a Record-Breaker

By Larry Jameson The 2013 6th annual Great California ShakeOut earthquake drill on October 17 exceeded all expectations. More than 9.6 million Californians â&#x20AC;&#x201D; many following specific drill broadcast instructions on more than 70 California radio and television stations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; simultaneously practiced the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drop, Cover, and Hold Onâ&#x20AC;? drill recommended by experts as essential for avoiding injury and even death in the event of a major earthquake. In addition, millions of

people in 37 other states, 5 territories and the District of Columbia participated in their own ShakeOut drill. ShakeOut participants in other countries brought the October 17 worldwide total to 18.5-plus million people. California participants included businesspersons, government officials, emergency responders, people in their homes, and students, teachers and administrators in schools and colleges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone, everywhere,

Everyone is invited to participate.” After lunch and visits with residents at Caleo Bay, bikers will depart as one large group to ride along Highway 111 from La Quinta to the American Legion Post 519, 400 N.

And residents have been looking forward to this year’s ride.” The Alzheimer’s Association, California Southland Chapter, is a collaborative partner with Eisenhower Medical Center and USC Keck School of Medicine.
