Recent Economic Reports a Mixed Bag

By Kevin Powell We continue to get varying messages from across the economic board. New housing starts just reported the lowest level since 2010. Stock earnings have seen about 60 percent of companies beat lowered expectations, but revenues have missed on about half of all companies that have posted earnings. Many companies are already lowering expectations for the fourth quarter and into 2014. This could lead to a slowdown in stocks — though not necessarily enough bad news to derail the on-going rally. These are not totally unexpected results. Housing

starts were bound to slow as interest rates jumped this summer, and many investors started selling the homes they purchased a few years ago and pocketing their profits. This led to an increase in inventories. For stocks, higher profits don’t necessarily mean companies are performing better. There are many costcutting measures such as not filling open positions, hiring more part-time workers as opposed to full-time employees. Stock buybacks can make a company’s earnings higher but it can’t help boost revenues. Lower revenues continue to point to the increased pressure on consumers. Stocks continue to hit record highs as we’ve expected. As long as the Fed maintains its easy-money policy, more closing records should continue. Technology has had an especially nice run this year outperforming all other major markets as we are seeing some extra IT spending from companies. But we are also seeing a lot of consumers buying more tech products. Best Buy is one of the best-performing stocks this year, thanks to

the resurgence of consumer purchases. Consumer staple companies like Procter & Gamble (PG), Clorox (CLX) and ColgatePalmolive (CL) are all lower-risk stock plays that have posted very nice returns this year. Healthcare continues to do well, and there’s no reason to expect this area to slow down as the Affordable

Care Act (Obamacare) continues to rollout in a broader scope. Apple (AAPL) just posted earnings on Monday and they had a solid quarter. Apple has traditionally traded lower after it announces its earnings, so don’t bet the farm on it. But I do like Apple longer term as I do most of the other stocks and sectors mentioned here.

DESERT HOT SPRINGS ELECTION SPECIAL By Desert Star Staff DESERT HOT SPRINGS – The municipal election for this city is next Tuesday, Nov. 5. Residents must choose from various candidates in races for mayor, city council and the board of directors for the Mission Springs Water District. During the month of October, Desert Star Weekly has provided space in its pages for all of the

candidates in all three races to be heard. Due to a production glitch in our Oct. 9 issue, the abridged transcripts of our interviews with the three candidates for mayor — incumbent Yvonne Parks, city council member Adam Sanchez and economist JohnPaul Valdez — ran together in a way that proved difficult to read. We apologize to the candidates

and our readers for this technical error, and we are running those interviews again in this issue as a service to the community. While our mayoral candidate interview transcripts have been edited for length, redundancy and organization, the context of every response highlighted has been preserved. Immediately following the mayoral candidate interviews

herein, we also are reprinting the responses to questions Desert Star Weekly posed to the four candidates for Desert Hot Springs City Council. In this race, Robert Bentley, an author, journalist and reverend, and Joe McKee, a retired corporate manager, are in the contest not only against each other but incumbents Scott Matas and Jan Pye, who are

presenting a unified city council reelection front together with incumbent mayoral candidate Yvonne Parks. All agreed to participate except for Bentley, who politely declined. The candidates in each of the two races highlighted appear in the alphabetical order of their last names. We encourage our Desert Hot Springs readers to get out and vote on Nov. 5.

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. Parks on Attracting Business: When I was elected mayor in 2007, we knew two things for sure: We had to improve infrastructure and reduce crime. If you don’t have a safe and clean community, you will never attract investment. We have worked 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 drive-in 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 bestqualified 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 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 vision for this city. We developed the downtown Vortexspecific 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’s Ideal DHS: 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 (new) Borrego Community Health Foundation on Pierson. I would love to see, at the intersection of Palm and I-10, another Jackson Street development — with tons of other stores. Desert Dunes golf course is working on annexation into the city and has big plans for its property. I know the (business) people; I’ve worked with them. They see this council as a workable one and they’re supporting us. I’m very excited about seeing all of this come to fruition, because when it does, this city will be the destination we all dreamed about.

PARKS

Parks on DHS Today: Overall, as far as the infrastructure, recreation for our youth and seniors, our medical clinic that just opened and our new Health and Wellness Center — all that is very good. We’re having some difficulty with our budget. The projected

DesertSTAR

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.

ADAM

SANCHEZ

Sanchez on DHS Today: 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

Continues on Page 5 www.desertstarweekly.com


DESERT HOT SPRINGS ELECTION SPECIAL Continued from Page 4

Desert Hot Springs mayoral candidate Adam Sanchez 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 Attracting Business: One of the great things that happening right now is that the state just (overhauled) the enterprise zone program. They’re going more regional with it, and Coachella has been fortunate because, through the Department of Commerce, they’re putting out grants now…. We’ve got to do the same thing, because our unemployment rate is anywhere 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 most important thing we have going for us right now is the new ARES project that’s up on Dillon…. We have a chance to create a manufacturing center right there at Dillon and Indian. And that’s the future of the city. 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 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 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’s Ideal DHS: We’ve got the worst image in the valley and we don’t deserve it. We’ve got beautiful views; the 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 (now), 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.

JOHN-PAUL

VALDEZ

Valdez on DHS Today: 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 Attracting 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

DESERT HOT SPRINGS ELECTION SPECIAL Continued from Page 5 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 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. 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 high-salaried 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 Leadership: When I saw the devastation (of the recession) 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 (Sept. 27), essentially, Mayor Parks has said nothing about it. Desert Hot Springs is at a

Matas on Budget Balancing: Staff is working through recommendations on how each department head will balance their department’s budget; we then need to reduce our spending according to the projected updates we will receive in November. We can increase revenue from our economic development strategy and work to make minimal cuts to city services. Public safety will never receive a vote from me on cuts; I believe with professional, sensible decision-making from our staff, we can cut in contracts and non-essential services for a balanced budget. In the last two months, our staff has renegotiated two contracts and has saved the city approximately $300,000.00; this is a start. Matas’s Ideal DHS: Six years ago when elected our current city council made progress in attending every meeting and promoting Desert Hot Springs throughout the county and state. Today we are respected and the image of Desert Hot October 30, 2013

Springs is better but more work needs to be done. We have plans to enhance tourism (Miracle Hill Plan) and economic development (award-winning strategy plan). We can capitalize on the national parks plan to merge several thousand acres into Joshua Tree National Monument just north of our city (Sand to Snow National monument plan). We have awardwinning students with many ideas on how to make the city a better place to live and as the founder of the Desert Hot Springs Youth Council we need to continue to make the youth of community a part of the decision-making.

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’s Ideal DHS: 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. With these ideas and plans, I will ask for your vote on November 5, 201 — Moving Desert Hot Springs Forward.

JOE

McKEE

McKee on Attracting Business: Our first priority is to raise the average household income to a level that comfortably supports families. This will not be achieved by bringing in more minimumwage, part-time retail jobs that offer no benefits. We must attract industry with its higher hourly wage scale and benefits package.

DESERT HOT SPRINGS ELECTION SPECIAL Continued from Page 6

Desert Hot Springs city council candidate Joe McKee McKee on Budget Balancing: The budget problem we face is not a surprise. The present majority hoped we could grow our way out of the problem, but as early as 2009, consultants warned of huge deficits in 2013 and beyond. The incumbents reacted by increasing spending. They have resisted reducing the salaries and costs of city employees and contractors. According to the Urban Futures report, city salaries, retirement and benefits cost the city $181,000 per employee. These costs amount to 80 percent of the budget. Spending is our deeper problem. We now spend at a rate 38 percent higher than like cities. Those cities spend at a rate of around $425 per person. Our rate is $670 per person. We need to study these cities to find out how they provide services more efficiently. Without reducing payroll and streamlining departmental efficiencies, they have no choice but to raise taxes. My opponents say they will not raise taxes but they have not told us how they will reverse the city deficit. If reelected, councilpersons Matas and Pye will ask you to pay more.

abundant energy, transportation infrastructure, open land — we can offer advantageous, competitive sites for development of the manufacturing segment. We need to develop educational opportunities so that our residents qualify for these higher-paying jobs. In addition to anchoring the downtown business district with a school to train people for better jobs, I believe we should pressure the Palm Springs School District to develop a true vocational education program at Desert Hot Springs High School. I share with the incumbents a wish to “enhance the Desert Hot Springs shopping experience,� but that cannot be achieved until the poor economic situation of our residents is turned around. My opponents have put the cart before the horse in this case. They have allowed the dream of increased sales tax revenues to blind them to the reality that people do not earn enough to shop for entertainment. City government serves the interests of its citizens, not the other way around. When families prosper, retail business will come, and government income will increase.

I promise not to raise your taxes or fees. We have to live within our means. McKee’s Ideal DHS: In my view, citizens are the future of Desert Hot Springs. It is the responsibility of city government to create a safe environment, maintain infrastructure, educate and nurture our children through recreational opportunities, and perhaps most important, create a business-friendly community that supports its citizens with good wages. Desert Hot Springs has the greatest people in the valley. They are our best resource. Our town is not a good place to live. It’s a great place to live. We have to get over the continuous media drumbeat that it is dangerous to live here. During every election cycle, all we hear is public safety is our number-one priority, as if there is danger lurking behind every lamppost. Public safety is much more than arresting people. It is fire protection. It is having access to help when you need it. It is an environment where children are educated in a caring, safe environment. It is providing our children with a path to success that does not include gang membership. It is a city where everyone has the ability to earn a living that will support a family without having to work more than seventy hours a week. It is a city in which property values increase because everyone wants to live here. We spend way too much time fighting and not enough time listening. All of us want a clean beautiful city. All of us have a piece of the puzzle that will get us there. Government is not about getting your way. It is about working as a team. Not a team of three, but a team of five. I promise to provide both leadership and the willingness to work together to reach our goals.

have that in Desert Hot Springs, and my role as one of your city council members is to make that story known to potential new businesses. I have been consistent with this endeavor. Our economic development team, including the Economic Development Committee, Chamber of Commerce, local business leaders, property owners and staff, has been working to recruit new retailers and industries to our community in order to provide more shopping and wellpaying employment opportunities. Encouraging new development is one of the keys to improving our local economy, creating jobs and generating the new municipal revenues that are needed to effectively run our city. Pye on Budget Balancing: We are cautious and we critically review the budget. We are currently directing staff to identify where budgets may be trimmed and where greater efficiency measures may be implemented while still providing essential public safety and other needed services to protect our residents and the quality of life in Desert Hot Springs. The best path to a sensible budget is transparency. Since November 2012, I have chaired a new Finance Committee comprised of local residents, business and property owners. This committee is open to the public and meeting notices are posted on the city website. The Committee’s budget recommendations are currently under review by city staff and

will soon be presented to the city council for policy decisions and direction. Pye’s Ideal DHS: By continuing to work as a team with fellow council members, staff, and the community at large, I can help bury the negative image. This has already started; the word “desperate� is fading as part of our name. Also, by attending regional meetings regularly, we as public officials can display a new and consistent image and mentality for our beloved city. It is working; proof is in the development activity. Some of our economic development accomplishments include: The Innovation Hub (I-HUB) — a collaboration of Palm Springs, Cathedral City and Desert Hot Springs. This program gives small businesses a launching pad to grow, create local well-paying jobs and contribute to our local economy. This I-Hub is recognized as one of the best operating in California. The new Dollar General Store that is already showing tremendous success in our community. We have attracted the Borrego Solar Project — a 1.5-megawatt solar plant on 15 acres on south side of Dillon. The new YK Spa on Hacienda is currently under construction and we expect it to open fall of 2013. Private investors are planning to build 2.6 million square-foot industrial park near Indian and I-10 – a project that will create 1000 new, permanent, well-paying jobs.

Pye on Attracting Business: Our role as your city leaders is to be a positive partner with our local business community. What sells a city today is quality of lifestyle, an available workforce, affordability of housing and cooperation from city staff. We

Long Island Medium is a Rare Bird

By Frieda Noone RANCHO MIRAGE – Experience something completely new at The Show, at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa,

as the “Long Island Medium,” Theresa Caputo, connects members of the audience with their loved ones in the afterlife. On her hit TLC television series

“Long Island Medium,” Caputo, a psychic medium, takes her clients on an emotionally charged and often cathartic spiritual journey as she creates an otherworldly line of

communication between the living and the afterlife. She spends her days helping people find closure and serves as a conduit for helping others get in touch with their loved ones who have passed — and validates that they are still with them. Caputo has been practicing for 10 years and is a certified medium with the Forever-Family Foundation, which is dedicated to connecting science with the afterlife. She says she can feel the spirits, see the shadows and hear the voices of those wishing to get their messages across. People who have witnessed her readings describe her as delivering in rapidfire style and are impressed by the amount of significant evidence and messages she is able to deliver. She has been said to turn skeptics into believers and put believers in total disbelief. Caputo has a two-year waiting-list for personal readings in the New York area, but her visit to The Show in Rancho Mirage will provide Coachella Valley residents with an opportunity to see her before a live audience. She can also been seen at theresacaputo. com and has authored “There’s

More to Life Than This: Healing Messages, Remarkable Stories, and Insight About the Other Side from the Long Island Medium.” Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa, a Four-Diamond property also offers the hottest slots, a variety of table games, and high-limit gaming, plus fine dining, shopping, relaxing spas and luxurious hotel rooms — all in a gorgeous desert setting. The resort’s performance venue, The Show, is the premier concert theatre in Southern California, with headliners including Matchbox Twenty, Tony Bennett, Jay Leno and more. The resort is owned and operated by the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, which also owns the world-famous Indian Canyons and Tahquitz Canyon hiking trails, as well as Indian Canyons Golf Resort. Theresa C a p u t o ’s appearance begins at 9 p.m. and admission starts at $60. To book tickets, visit The Show online at hotwatercasino.com/theshow or purchase them in person at the Essentials Gift Shop at the Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa. General info: 888-999-1995.

The bonus material will take you inside the mind of acclaimed film director Guillermo del Toro with 14 featurettes that provide in-depth looks at Kaijus, Jaegers, film sets, stunts, FX and the mythology. Also included are “The Director’s Notebook: The Digital Artistry of Pacific Rim,” audio commentary and more. On a more traditionally animated note, Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” is now available on Blu-ray for the first time.

Based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, the 1989 classic provides plenty of undersea fantasy for the younger crowd as the mermaid princess Ariel and her lovably fishy friends mix comedy, adventure and music. “Pacific Rim” is rated PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence throughout and brief language. “The Little Mermaid,” of course, is rated G.

video Tokyo into pieces. It, too, was a giant reptile of fierce proportions, but the Kaiju monsters of “Pacific Rim” are even bigger and they have plenty of offspring ready and willing to join them in their monumental fight against humanity. Faced with the dire consequences of a Kaiju invasion rising from the sea, earthlings have devised a gigantic weapon to destroy the dreaded sea monsters. The human weapon of choice is an army of giant

robots called Jaegers (the German word for Hunters) which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked together. Usually pilots are from the same family — twins, triplets or father and son. At first things seem to go well, but the onslaught of Kaijus entering earth from a giant fissure under the sea has escalated to apocalyptic proportions. If the fissure is not closed immediately, the earth is doomed. There is a lot of sci-fi action, but the director also gives us characters to root for and against in this lively action adventure set “The Little Mermaid,” with subsea superstar Ariel, has made its debut on Blu-ray.

Blackhawks Turn Tomahawk on Indians high school football

By Dan Marinelli LA QUINTA – Much was on the line for both teams in an emotional Desert Valley League (DVL) matchup between the Palm Springs High School Indians (1-2 DVL, 5-3 overall) and the La Quinta High School Blackhawks (3-0 in DVL, 6-2 overall) last Friday at La Quinta High. The Indians, champions of the DVL since 2010, were playing with their chances at a four-peat in serious doubt. If the Indians lost to the Blackhawks and Palm Desert High School won their game against Indio High, the Indians would be eliminated from DVL title contention. Additionally, the Blackhawks were looking to end their threegame, three-year losing streak against the Indians. As if that was not enough incentive, every year since 2011, the winner of this matchup is

awarded the Mike Gates Trophy. Mike Gates was a former coach and teacher at both schools. Cancer claimed his life in January 2011. Since then, this game between La Quinta High and Palm Springs High is played in his honor. Both teams recognized the game’s significance because both were playing tenacious, hardnosed, defense from the opening kick. The stifling defenses kept the teams scoreless in the first quarter. “We have eleven guys that just like to run out there and hit people,” said Blackhawks head coach Dan Armstrong. “We have good team speed and a lot of guys that play hard. Coach Gadd, our defensive coordinator — it was huge getting him back this year. He was our defensive coordinator for both of our CIF title championships and drew up a great game plan.” Neither team was too eager to pass. In such a tight game, one

turnover could affect the outcome. However, the difference between the two teams was the Indians’ inability to stop the Blackhawks’ unrelenting three-man running attack, led by senior receiver turned-running back Vincent Guzman. “We have a lot of young, really inexperienced receivers and a sophomore quarterback,” said Coach Armstrong. “We’re working on getting better at throwing the ball. But as long as we can run the ball as effectively as we have, it takes some pressure off of (our passing game).” In the second quarter, after a Lucas Norbolm field goal, Guzman carried the ball four yards and scored the Blackhawks’ first touchdown of the game. The score was 9-0 in favor of the Blackhawks going into the half. Unfortunately for the Indians, nine points would be all that the Blackhawks needed. In the third quarter, Darius Griffin ran the ball 12-yards for the Blackhawks’ final touchdown of the game. The Blackhawks added Star running back Vincent Guzman (#40) lines up in the back field for the Blackhawks. (Photo by Dan Marinelli) one more field goal before Noah

sports McGuire carried the ball 12 yards for the Indians’ lone score of the game. The Blackhawks won the game, 19-6. Guzman finished the game with 252 yards rushing and one touchdown on 42 attempts, allowing Blackhawks quarterback Michael Avina only seven passes. Of the Blackhawks’ 79 plays, 53 percent of them were designed for Guzman. At the end of the game, an emotional celebration ensued. The Blackhawks gathered at midfield as the Mike Gates Trophy, a golden football atop of a wooden stand, was presented to coach Armstrong. “Mike Gates was a teacher and a coach here for 12 years,” said Coach Armstrong. “I think he considered himself more of a Blackhawk than an Indian, and we wanted (the trophy) here. Unfortunately, we lost the first two;

we finally got it on the third try. It means a lot to bring this trophy back home, where we think it belongs.” After losing to Palm Desert High last Friday, Palm Springs suffered their second straight loss of the season — their first twogame losing streak since 2012. Also, this is the second straight week an opponent has snapped a multi-year losing streak against the historically tough Palm Springs High Indians. To make matters worse for the Indians, Palm Desert High did defeat Indio High, officially knocking the Indians out of the DVL title race for the first time in four years. The Indians may be out of league title contention; however, their fight for a highly contested DVL playoff spot continues on the road this Friday against the winless Indio High Rajahs. The Blackhawks are looking to win their fifth straight game. They are on the road this Friday, too, playing at Cathedral City High School. Both games start at 7 p.m.

Witchy Social Raises Cackles

By Pat Krause RANCHO MIRAGE – The 10th annual Witches Brew celebration was held at the Old Spaghetti Factory on Oct. 27. Witches and warlocks — dressed in role-appropriate garb — gather each year for this wickedly fun fete, which is always held on the

T h e m a c a b re m e n u featured Eye Balls and Guts (a.k.a. spaghetti and meatballs) and Alfredo’s Fingers (a.k.a. fettuccine alfredo), plus Salad of Caesar-Julius. And of course, what would this frightfully flavorful feast have been without plenty of Bloody Marys?

Inspired by a series of master classes held at New York City’s Julliard School and conducted by the great opera diva Maria Callas toward the end of her career in the 1970s, “Master Class” places Callas center stage once again as she enlightens, bullies and prods hopeful opera singers — or “victims,” as she calls them — into giving the performances of their lives while inadvertently revealing aspects of her own. “The choice to do a Terrence

McNally play was an easy one,” said CVRep’s Celona. “He’s simply one of the best American playwrights of our time. I saw ‘Master Class’ many years ago with the original Broadway cast and, like most of McNally’s work, it never left my mind.” “Master Class,” the first of four productions to be offered by CV Rep this season, won both the 1996 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1996 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding New Play. It opened on Broadway in 1995 and starred Zoe Caldwell as Callas and Audra McDonald as Sharon, Second Soprano. Both Caldwell and McDonald won Tony Awards for their performances in 1996. Award-winning New York actress Marina Re heads up the six-member CV Rep cast portraying Maria Callas, while Pennsylvania mezzo-soprano Nora Graham plays Sharon, Second Soprano. Cast members local to the Coachella Valley include singer-actress Kara Masek as Sofie, First Soprano; Mario Rios as Anthony, Tenor; Steven Smith as Manny, the accompanist; and Michael Frank in dual roles as the stage manager within the play and for this production. CV Repertory Theatre is located in The Atrium, 69-930 Highway 111. Tickets are $40 and are available at the box office or by visiting cvrep.org. This Friday, Nov. 1, in support of CVRep, the Palm Springs Opera Guild of the Desert, OperaArts of Rancho Mirage / Palm Springs and Opera Showcase of the Desert are offering their members the opportunity to attend an elegant dinner catered by Acqua Pazza / Lulu California Bistros the CV Repertory Theatre along with a performance of “Master Class.” Call 760-296-2966 for details. www.desertstarweekly.com


Longevity Parties Forming Globally By Art Kunkin (Mr. Life Extension) In 20 countries, including Russia, China and the U.S., organizing committees have been formed to establish new longevity political parties whose central issue is to increase the human life span. Two of the leading figures in this new international movement are biomedical writer Ilia Stambler of Israel and molecular biophysicist Maria Konovalenko of Russia. The first branch of the Longevity Party was established in Russia in July 2012. Since then, organizing committees for the Longevity Party have been established in Israel, the U.S., Canada, Georgia, Israel, Finland, Italy, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, Uganda, South Africa, Korea, the Philippines, Japan, Singapore and China. The Longevity Party has a Facebook page and other sites on the Web. Dr. Natasha Vita-More and Hank Pellissier, managing director

of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies (IEET), first announced plans for the U.S. Longevity Party on the IEET website (ieet.org). Pellissier and Vita-Moore are being aided by Tom Mooney, executive director of the Coalition to Extend Life based in Washington, D.C. Mooney is the author of “Live Forever or Die Trying: The History and Politics of Life Extension.” He was a twoterm member of the Maryland State Legislature, a nominee for Governor of Maryland in 1986, and the former vice president of the United States Student Association. Mooney will serve as communications director of the U.S.A. Longevity Party. Dr. Natasha Vita-More is chairman of Humanity+ and her work has been featured in Wired magazine, L.A. Weekly, The New York Times, U.S. News and Report, Net Business, Village Voice and more than a dozen documentaries. Hank Pellissier is the author

of two e-books, “Invent Utopia Now” and “Why is the IQ of Ashkenazi Jews So High.” A journalist, Pellissier was the “Local Intelligence” columnist for The New York Times (San Francisco edition) and he’s a frequent contributor to the World Future Society. In an Internet article titled

“Russians Create the Longevity Party,” biophysicist Maria Konovalenko writes that in July 2012, a group gathered in Moscow to establish the first political party aimed at extending the human life span using technological means: “This was the very first step in the long and hard process of legally registering a political party. I believe this is one of the most important things that has happened in the past few years in fighting aging. Nowhere in the world ever before have people expressed their desire to live longer in the form of a political movement.” Konovalenko continued: “The main goal of the Longevity Party is to increase human life span so that people can live for as long as they would like to and remain young and healthy. We would like to achieve this goal by promoting scientific research and technological advances in regenerative medicine, genetics of aging and longevity, n e u ro s c i e n c e , c o m p u t e r modeling of biological processes and other areas of life extension. “There are many things we need to do in order to legally register the Party, and we have already started doing them. The next big thing we need to do is finalize the Program of the

Party. Then we have to have at least two people in 42 regions of Russia as representatives of the Party and have the founding meeting, after which the Party can be registered and eventually appear in the voting ballots. “Our goal is to influence the authorities to support life extension technologies and increase funding for research aimed at improving people’s health and extending longevity.” Additionally, Konovalenko reported that two Israeli lifeextension activists — scholar Ilia Stambler and poet Oded Carmeli — sent a proposal to 120 members of Israel’s Knesset (Parliament) requesting that the Israeli government establish an agency to combat aging and death. An article that includes their proposal is available on the Internet at “Political Struggle Against the Disease of Aging.” Art Kunkin is the 85-years young journalist, in 1964, who founded the alternative newspaper Los Angeles Free Press and later became president of the Philosophical Research Society. He resides in Joshua Tree at the Institute of Mentalphysics and can be reached at artkunkin@gmail.com. Copyright © 2013 by Art Kunkin.

Toad the Wet Sprocket’s previous albums, Lapdog, Vertical Horizon When it comes to taking a break between issuing studio efforts, alternative rock quartet Toad the Wet Sprocket has just about everybody beat. Having last issued a full-length studio recording in 1997 with the outstanding “Coil,” Santa Barbara’s beloved Toad the Wet Sprocket is back with the brilliant 11-track “New

Constellation.” Few groups tap into the joys and challenges of life with the songwriting depth of Toad the Wet Sprocket — as evidenced by the glorious “The Moment,” probing “Rare Bird” and ambitious “Enough.” Singerguitarist Glen Phillips, guitarist Todd Nichols, bassist Dean Dinning and drummer Randy Guss have produced one of the best albums of 2013. Info: toadthewetsprocket.com. Artist: Clannad Title: Nádur (ARC Music) Listen if you enjoy: The Chieftains, The High Kings

Fans of traditional Irish music will be delighted to hear that Clannad is back with one of its most rewarding discs in a successful career stretching back more than four decades. The family group blends all of its diverse influences across 13 tracks; jazz, pop rock and Celtic abound with Clannad’s sterling vocal harmonies showcased throughout. The affecting ballad “TransAtlantic,” Americanameets-folk song “Rhapsody na gCrann” and spirited pop-rocker “Brave Enough” forcefully reflect the creative spirit of the Emerald Isle.

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 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 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.

Getting to the Art of the Matter on Hwy 62

By Pam Price JOSHUA TREE – This year’s Hwy 62 Art Tours, scattered through the gorgeously rugged hills of the High Desert north of Palm Springs and organized by the Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council, featured 89 openstudio galleries and shops. Last year, this event drew about 8,000 adventurous art lovers. Dimitri Halkidis of Gallery 446 gathered four of his gal pals (including me) and took us on a magical mystery tour of the show that traversed unpaved roads to far-flung creative outposts. Those with the time and patience to explore this region characterized by extreme nature and populated with amazing artists on the weekends of Oct. 19-20 and Oct. 26-27 were rewarded with entry into many private studios not normally open to the public. Our group had an advantage, because we started out by getting the inside scoop from our friends who own Spin and Margie’s Desert Hide-A-Way — a Joshua Tree establishment described by its proprietors as “Accommodations for the Experienced Traveler”). We began our esoteric expedition

with a visit to Dr. Doolittle, the artist (not the fictional character). Mark Doolittle, Ph.D., specializes in reimagining wood in the image of ancient mollusks and other sea creatures and organic forms — creating nearly-living specimens of beautiful design. Through pieces such as one titled “Live Edge,” Dr. Doolittle creates mystically intricate shapes. His functional studio is adjacent his family’s remarkable residence, which harmonizes architecturally with the surrounding desert mountain landscape.

Thankfully, our vehicle had a full tank of gas, which we needed as we wandered 20 minutes off Highway 62 on Sunfair Road, past Simi Dabah’s outdoor sculpture studio, and followed a lonely sign to Lucid Stead. More on this striking and wonderfully isolated art installation— once an old homesteader’s habitat— next week. Pam Price co-authored “Day Trips from Los Angeles” (globepequot.com).

Continue to climb the ladder of success. You’re to find your rightful place in the world. PISCES You have been moving out from the known into areas of the unknown, on the precipice and razor’s edge, which provides you with new experiences and learnings. A new path is beckoning for you to expand beyond personality boundaries that will forever alter your perspectives. You must place your trust in the messages from your intuition — from what you aspire to be and to have. You must begin to believe in yourself. This is your new frontier.

high school volleyball

By Dan Marinelli COACHELLA VALLEY – With at least two games remaining for each team in the Desert Valley League’s (DVL) Girls’ high school volleyball season, three teams have separated themselves as true leaders of the pack. The Palm Springs High Indians (8-0 DVL, 19-3 overall), Palm Desert High Aztecs (7-1 DVL, 21-4 overall) and La Quinta High Blackhawks (3-3 DVL, 8-3 overall) are 1-2-3 in the DVL standings and ranked 113th, 180th and 313th the state, respectively. There is a noticeable gap left among the DVL’s best with the absence of last year’s undefeated champion, Xavier Prep Saints (4-4 DVL, 6-6 overall), currently in fourth place. Their drop-off is understandable: the defending champs lost six seniors and their head coach from last year’s team. Xavier Prep, currently under the direction of new head coach Jacqui Tricco, still has a slight chance to make the playoffs. But the Saints are going to need to finish the season strong. With important games against the Blackhawks (10/29) and the Aztecs (10/30) upcoming, the fate of the Saints’ season could be decided by week’s end. Unlike Xavier Prep, the Aztecs, Indians and Blackhawks are all primed to make extended runs in the playoffs. Each of these teams are hoping to be awarded high seeds in the CIF-Southern Section, Division 2A, playoffs. The Blackhawks have two big games left to play in their season — an important game at home against Xavier Prep (10/29), and one next the Aztecs. A win for the Indians week, on the road, against the would mean remaining undefeated second-place Aztecs (11/06). in the DVL, winning their first league
