Benoit Discusses Goals for 2013 at Indio Rotary Lunch

INDIO – New chairman of the Riverside County Board of Supervisors and longtime Rotarian Supervisor John J. Benoit shared his goals for 2013 with the Indio Rotary Club at their lunch on Tuesday, Jan. 22 at the Fantasy Springs Convention Center in Indio. “This year in Riverside C o u n t y, we have big opportunities in the areas of health care, economic development, clean air projects and the Salton Sea,” said Supervisor Benoit. As president of the Indio Rotary Club in 1994, Benoit and his wife, Sheryl, then a Desert Sands school district employee, helped found the Valley-wide Rotary Math Field Day, an annual tradition in which several hundred middle school students compete in mathematical challenges. School districts in the Coachella Valley had been forced to discontinue participation in a similar event

held annually in Riverside due to the cost of transportation. The club is coming up on its 19th year of sponsoring Rotary Math Field Day. For more information about the Rotary Club of Indio, contact club secretary Sue Steding at 760-485-1843. Supervisor Benoit represents the Fourth District on the Riverside County Board

STAROpinion I am a big sports fan and one of my favorite teams, the San Francisco 49ers, is in the Super Bowl and favored by four points. At the beginning of the season (back in August 2012), I made an online wager of $10 on BET US for the 49ers to win the Super Bowl and got 5 to 1 odds. That bet is a “pick-em” which means I don’t have to give points, so I’ll be glued to my couch on Sunday, Feb. 3 for the big game. Super Bowl XLVII is poised to be the most historic ever because Baltimore Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh and San Francisco 49er Head Coach Jim Harbaugh are brothers who have been engaged in a competitive sibling rivalry since childhood. Jim, who is only 15 months younger, said he wishes the best for his older brother. John said the same about Jim. This healthy sibling rivalry speaks volumes about how the two boys were raised by their parents Jack and Jackie Harbaugh, who have said that they hope for a tie, but realize there can be no ties in the Super Bowl.

Historic Sibling Rivalry in Super Bowl XLVII The Harbaugh brothers are the first sibling head coaches to compete against one another in the Super Bowl and their parents will be cheering for both at the Superdome in New Orleans. According to experts, sibling rivalry is a type of competition among siblings. Siblings spend a lot more time together during

This strong sibling bond is often influenced by birth order, personality, parental treatment and experiences outside the family, which can be particularly intense when children are very close in age and of the same gender, or where one child is intellectually gifted.

published reports, John and Jim shared a bedroom until they were 16 and fought like most competitive boys. The boys put tape across their bedroom floor dividing the room with the implied threat that if either crossed to the other side he was looking for trouble. Today, the two grown men are best friends. Jim called the historic matchup both a “blessing and a curse. The blessing is because it’s my brother’s team and also personally I played for the Ravens. The curse part would be that talk of two brothers coaching in the Super Bowl takes away from the players that are in the game.” The sports influence runs deep in the Harbaugh family. Their father, Jack, was a running back for the Buffalo Bills in 1961 and later played for the New York Titans/Jets. Jack had a long career coaching high school and college football which is probably why the two brothers followed in their father’s footsteps. Also, their daughter Joani married Indiana University Basketball Coach Tom Crean, so sports is a big family tradition. And that’s a very good thing. Sports is a healthy thing for families. No matter what the

sport, it’s just a game which builds goods sibling rivalry within the family unit. The two brothers did compete against each other once on Thanksgiving 2011. The Ravens won 16-6 but that wasn’t a Super Bowl. John was a special teams and secondary coach for the Philadelphia Eagles before he was hired by the Ravens in 2008. Jim was the quarterback for the University of Michigan, then was a first round draft pick by the Chicago Bears. Jim played 14 years in the NFL with the Bears, the Indianapolis Colts, the Baltimore Ravens and the San Diego Chargers before becoming a coach. He was the hottest coaching candidate after the 2010 winning season with Stanford. Michigan wanted him badly. The Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers all courted him severely too. Many sports experts expected him to return to Michigan, but he fooled everyone and accepted the 49ers’ job, enabling him to remain in California. Both brothers made highly controversial decisions - John fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and replaced him with Jim Caldwell, a move credited with Joe Flacco’s outstanding playoff performance. Jim moved second string quarterback Colin Kaepernick to the starting position which moved quarterback Alex Smith to the bench after he suffered a concussion. Let’s all enjoy a great game.

Attempted “Suicide By Cop” On Monday, Jan. 14 at approximately 1:30 p.m., Cathedral City Police Department was dispatched to the 33140 block of Cathedral Canyon Dr, regarding an irate subject breaking Christmas lights at the location. The reporting party was terrified and immediately hung up the phone after calling. The reporting party called back and advised Dispatch the subject had a pellet rifle that realistically resembled a hunting rifle and the subject wanted the police to shoot him. CCPD had responded on a previous call to the address where the subject stated he would make police to shoot him if they showed up again. Officers had knowledge the subject had prior convictions for narcotics, assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, felon in possession of a firearm, and attempted murder.

As officers arrived they heard the sound of a weapon being shot in the area. CCPD officers cordoned off the area. CHP’s H63 responded to assist. CCFD also responded as a precaution. The subject climbed atop the roof with a rifle. Officers called the subject and spoke with him. He told the officer on the phone he had an “automatic rifle,” he wanted to be “front page news,” and wanted “suicide by cop.” After almost an hour the subject was peacefully detained without further incident. The rifle was a .22 Caliber pellet rifle with a scope. The subject, Christopher Lopez Ramirez, 39, of Cathedral City was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center for a psychiatric evaluation. Neither Ramirez, reporting parties, witnesses, nor officers were injured during this incident.

Author, Corine Gantz will discuss the increasingly popular and practical option for authors of self-publishing and its increasing recognition. Meetings are open to Guests and Non-Members. There is no charge for this event sponsored by PSWG. Gantz will address the independence of self-publishing and educate attendees on how and where to start the process. “We put the publishing deal on a pedestal. We think it is egotistical to call ourselves an author without being vetted by a ‘Real Publisher’,” notes Gantz. She will explore the question; “why are we so attached to the old publishing model, and are our hang ups relevant to our writing aspirations?”

PSIFF Winners The Palm Springs International Film Festival has left the Valley, to return next January for its 25th anniversary. However, the memories of the 182 films from 68 countries screened this year will linger on, as shown by the audience choices for this year’s festival award winners. Festival attendees selected an Australian film, “The Sapphires,” based on the real-life story of an allfemale Aboriginal singing group in the 60’s, as the Mercedes-Benz Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature. An American entry, “Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey,” a documentary about the dilemmas the rock band Journey faced when their lead singer had to be replaced, as the Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature. A special jury of international film critics reviewed 42 of the 71 official Foreign Language submissions to the Academy Awards screened at this year’s Festival to award a series of prizes known as the FIPRESCI prizes. An Israeli submission, “Fill the Void,”

a marital drama set in Tel Aviv’s Hassidic community, was named as the “Best Foreign Language Film of the year. A trio of Italian actors, Cosimo Rega, Salvatore Strianno and Giovanni Arcuri were awarded the FIPRESCI Prize for Best Actor of the Year in a Foreign Film for their performances in “Caesar Must Die.” The FIIPRESCI Prize for Best Actress in a Foreign Film went to Emilie Dequenne for her work in the Belgium film, “Our children.” “The Cleaner,” a Peruvian film that tells the story of a mysterious and

deadly epidemic in Lima, Peru, where a depressed and isolated man cleans up after the dying, was awarded the New Voices/New Visions Award that earned the filmmaker a sculpture created by famed glass artist Dale Chihuly and a $60,000 Panavision camera rental package. “Blancanieves,” the film chosen for the honor of being the Film Festival’s opening night’s presentation, won the Cine Latino Award. It’s a silent film adapted from the Snow White tale. The film still has a mean stepmother, but adds the touches of a band of dwarfs and bullfighting. The John Schlesinger Award, which is presented to a first-time documentary filmmaker, went to Michael McGowan who vividly presents the inside story of Somali piracy.

The HP Bridging the Borders Award, which honors the film that most successfully exemplifies that promotes bringing people closer together, went to the Northern Ireland/UK feature, “Jump,” whose six on-screen characters manage to bridge a lot of gaps. It is only fitting that one of the Film Festival’s coveted awards was presented separately from the madding Awards Gala crowd for the work of much-beloved local resident and famed international photographer, Michael Childers. Nearly 200 of the Desert’s most notable and powerful personalities gathered at Spencer’s Restaurant where Film Festival Chairman and restaurateur, Harold Matzner, presided over the presentation of the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s Crystal Lens to Childers. With a career stretching back to the days when he was photo editor for Andy Warhol’s two cutting-edge magazines, Childers has shown a talent for finding the beautiful or unique aspect of his subjects and before enhancing them through his lens. Childers’ latest book, “Icons and Legends, Volume 2,” is the most recent proof of this point. One event closes, another one opens. That’s the way it is during the Desert’s season. One of the Desert’s longest-running annual events is the return of The Desert Symphony, which for 24 years – most recently under the dedicated presidency of Nancy Tapick - has provided our Valley with a professional-quality orchestra committed to enhancing and enriching the cultural life of the people of the Desert.

All-Star Tribute to Monty Hall INDIAN WELLS – The Indian Wells Rotary Club held their annual gala to raise money for the “Oliphant Scholarship Fund” on Sunday, Jan. 20 at 5 p.m. at Miramonte Resort & Spa in Indian Wells. The fundraiser enables the rotary to offer financial assistance to those who might not otherwise be able to attend college, with the goal this year to raise at least $30,000 to support high school seniors enrolling in college in the fall of 2013. The gala hosts Monty Hall while giving tribute to the internationally-known producer, actor singer and sportscaster, best known as host of the television game show “Let’s Make a Deal.” Norm Crosby, the “Master of Malaprop” and a veteran of countless Ed Sullivan shows and television specials, is a particularly close friend of Hall’s and will be doing

Monty Hall standup comedy to have fun with the crowd. Jack Jones and Trini Lopez, as well as a host of musical and dramatic talent are part of the evening entertainment. There will be other notable guests and friends of Hall’s offering comments about him, as well as a few other surprises.

Desert Symphony Returns

it does this is through presentation of its “Signature Season,” an eclectic mix of musical on-stage entertainment featuring some of the greatest talents in the country. The Desert Symphony opened this year’s season earlier this month with a special event: awarding Frankie Randall the symphony’s prestigious Amadeus Award on the occasion of Randall’s 75th birthday. Among prior recipients of this award are such luminaries as Bob Hope (1994), Frank Sinatra (1995), Jack Jones (19970 and John Tesh (2008). The Amadeus Award honors the memory of the orchestra’s founder, Maestro Benachowski’s, favorite composer and is given in recognition of great musical talent and outstanding achievement in the advancement of the musical arts. Frankie Randall fits the bill admirably. Playing piano since the age of seven, Randall worked at the infamous “Jilly’s” where he met Frank Sinatra with whom he developed a friendship and later toured. From there, Randall recorded, did television and booked talent for two Las Vegas casinos. But,

Frankie Randall his first love is performing, which he still does superbly, as evidenced by his 75th birthday performance. The next Signature Series event is Feb. 12, when it presents Oh What A Night, a musical tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Then, on March 14th, The Desert Symphony will be in concert with The 5th Dimension and Florence LaRue. More information about The Desert Symphony and its Signature Series is available at 760-773-5988.

STARTravel Travel Supermarket With the winter holidays rapidly becoming a distant memory, many families turn their attention to summer vacations, with some surprising results. According to recently released research from Travel Supermarket, an online comparison service, slightly more than one in five holiday decision makers argue about the choice of destination or how much to spend on the family’s big vacation. The research findings also shows that while 58 percent of the women make the final vacation decision, 40 percent of the men claim they sacrifice their preferences in order to keep peace in the household. Also part of the family vacation squabbles, nearly half the vacationers disagree about things such as which activities to do during the day, what and where they should eat. But, again, it is the majority of women that makes the final decision. Even when the issue is money and how much the family should budget for vacation, the women have the final say, but men are more likely to start an argument over money. How can you avoid these vacation disputes, you probably can’t. Here are some commonsense suggestions. 1. Start off by getting everyone together and understanding what each family member likes or dislikes. 2. Come up with a list of three or four things what will make the most people happy. This is now your ‘must have’ list. 3. Set a clear budget and try to stick with it. 4. Now that you know what everyone wants from a vacation, do your research. You will want to look at destination guides, blogs and online reviews; but remember, the final decision will probably be made by a woman.

The Best Bargain Hotel in both the U.S. and the world is the SeaCoast Inn, Hyannis. Massachusetts. Leading the list of Top Small Hotel in the U.S. is the Inn of the Five Graces in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with the Top Small Hotel in the World rating going to Anastasis Apartments in Imerovigli, Greece. Point Clear Cottages in Fairhope, Alabama was ranked as the Best B&B and Inn in the U.S., while Casa Portagioia in Castiglion Fiorentino, Italy was voted Best B&B and Inn in the world. Of particular interest to local residents, Hotel California, a secluded boutique hotel in downtown Palm Springs, was rated as the Best Hotel for Service in the U.S. With only 13 rooms, Hotel California reflects the charm and romance of a California Spanish Mission, with all its rustic charm. Where will you experience the top choice in the Best Hotel Service in the World category? You would have to journey to Llandudno in Northern Wales and book one of the 11 rooms at Lauriston Court Hotel.

MusicSTAR Past And Present Celebrated On New Music-Minded Titles and Satellites,” Trampled by Turtles finds itself at the forefront of young artists blending high octane bluegrass with indie country folk and Americana songwriting with astonishing success. On “Stars and Satellites,” singer-guitarist Dave Simonett sings with emotional power on “Midnight on the Interstate” and “High Water,” while everywhere Erik Berry (mandolin) and Ryan Young (fiddle) thrill with dazzling solos.

Singer-songwriter Ben Harper joins forces with legendary bluesman Charlie Musselwhite on a concept album, Trampled by Turtles brings bluegrass to a new generation and a restored version of 1971’s animated film “The Point” featuring the songcraft of Harry Nilsson is released.

Artist: Ben Harper with Charlie Musselwhite Title: Get Up! (Stax Records/Concord Music Group) You might be interested if you like: John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, Big Head Todd and the Monsters. Tell me more: Ben Harper’s forthcoming 12th studio album is likely one of the most interesting and compelling releases of early 2013. Set for release on Jan. 29, 2013, Harper joins forces with Mississippi blues harmonica master Charlie Musselwhite on a concept album titled “Get Up!” where 10 vibrant character studies are presented across the disc. There are heavy musical grooves as evidenced by the potent “I Don’t Believe a Word You Say” and “Blood Side Out,” the latter featuring Musselwhite’s strong harp blowing amidst and around Harper’s forceful vocals. But more often the mix of blues, roots music, gospel and R&B comes in the service of affecting blues- and gospel ballads. “I Ride at Dawn” takes a look at the realities of war and is dedicated to a Navy SEAL: “Give a man a hundred years / He’ll want a hundred more / Give him a hundred choices / And he still chooses war

You might be interested if you like: Harry Nilsson, Ringo Starr, The Beatles “Yellow Submarine.” Tell me more: Although it was directed and animated by Academy Award winner Fred Wolf, was narrated by rock’s most famous drummer Ringo Starr and features the timeless songcraft of Harry Nilsson, “The Point” is a wonderful animated movie that seemed to have been mostly forgotten before its recent re-release by MVD Visual. Now a remastered version of the fulllength film is available and will thrill fans of Nilsson and Starr, as well as a new generation of kids with a stillrelevant tale of Oblio, a round-headed child living in the world of “Point.” The animation is simple but colorful and stylish; even more important is the collection of Nilsson songs (notably “P.O.V. Waltz” and “Me and My Arrow”) that continue to inspire. Bonus features on “The Point” include documentary shorts on Harry Nilsson and the making of the film itself.

A Tribute To The Beatles mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that’s as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics (“I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “Hard Day’s Night,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Let It Be,” “Come Together,” “Hey Jude” and more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all

you needed was love and a little help from your friends! The New York Times said, “The audience is enraptured. They get a chance to sing along, twist and shout!” The Chicago Sun-Times raved, “On their feet, with arms raised high above their heads, all in the audience were swaying and singing along in blissed-out, nostalgia-powered unison!”. The Boston Herald said, “Uncanny! RAIN is a quartet of fine musicians in their own right…as The Beatles, they triumph!” and The Washington Post wrote, “An adoring Valentine to The Beatles!” Like The Beatles, the onstage members of RAIN are not only supreme musicians, but electrifying performers in their own right. McCallum Theatre presents RAIN for three nights Tuesday, Feb. 5 through Thursday, Feb 7 at 8 p.m. Tickets are priced at $85, $65, $45 and $35.

“Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away” Early in January I saw “Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away” in 3D. The film, by New Zealand born director, Andrew Adamson, gives the viewer an intimate, up-close and personal look at such amazing Las Vegas Cirque productions as “O,“ a spectacular water extravaganza performed on, above and in water, the acrobatic masterpiece “KA” and the musical delight “The Beatles Love.” The romantic journey ends with an aerial performance by Linz and Zaripov, the two starcrossed lovers, which was created specifically for the film. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing all of Cirque’s Las Vegas shows live, but when you watch from a theatre seat you don’t get the chance to go under water with the swimmers

Theda Kleinhans Reichman filled with magical creatures, an evil witch and talking animals. It was his love of fantasy and wonder

that drew him to Cirque because for him there is “something very uplifting about watching human beings perform at this level...doing things that are completely, to me, impossible, it’s like an affirmation of what we are capable of. Once you’ve seen a woman sit on her own head, you think anything is possible.” In that spirit of wonder he has fashioned a love story between a young girl (Erica Kathleen Linz) and a young Aerialist (Igor Zaripov, currently with Cirque). She is attracted to Zaripov, a handsome young man who is part of a small tent circus. He too is smitten. When he sees her in the audience during his act he falls and is swallowed up by the sandy ground beneath. She runs to his aid and is propelled

In the movie the camera also zooms in as aerialists perform on the “Ghost Ship” in “O.” This is also the case as we watch performers from “Love” and “Ka.” The “Ka” sequences are particularly amazing since the artists work on a stage that goes from horizontal to vertical, and thanks to the camera lens we can closely observe the acrobats as they do things that seems physically impossible to achieve. From “Ka” we are treated to sequences from “Mystere.” If you have never seen a Cirque show, this film provides a colorful smorgasbord that will introduce you to Cirque du Soleil’s brand of mystique and magic.

The 2013 Humana Challenge, formerly the Bob Hope Classic, had a purse of $5.6 million. The Clinton Foundation partnered with Humana to make this a great PGA tournament to start the new year. A new focus for the Humana Challenge is on Health and Wellbeing. President Clinton’s idea Brian Gay for a healthier U.S. Golfer Scott Stallings held the lead for most of the tournament. Missed putts and balls in the water saw his downfall from the leader board. Charles Howell III. Daniel Lingmerth and Brian Gay made birdies to climb to the leader board on 18. A three way playoff for the win. David Lingmerth put his second shot on 18 into the water and kept him from trying for a win. Gay and Howell went to the 10th Tee where Howell put his shot into a bunker. Gay made a birdie putt for the win. Gay’s winnings totaled $1,008,000 million and was his fourth win on the PGA tour. Fan favorite Phil Mickelson ended up in the middle eight strokes back. PGA golf Legend Gary Player made a comment Gay won more for this one tournament that he had made in his whole career of many wins over the years. President Bill Clinton didn’t play but was on the course on Thursday to greet golfers and fans. 17 Celebrities including, Alice Cooper, Michael Bolton, Eric Dickerson, Marshall Faulk, Carson Daly and others played for three days. Sunday was the final day with only PGA pros playing for the win.

Family-owned and operated since 2006 By Jackie Devereaux

CATHEDRAL CITY –When Richard Camacho purchased the La Bella Roma Italian restaurant in 2006, he knew he had the chance of a lifetime to make his American Dream come true for not only himself, but for his entire family. Camacho, 49, put his wife, Maria Eugenia in charge of coordinating the familyrun restaurant with his four adult children and one son-in-law working every position from chef to waitress to bookkeeper to manager. Six members of the Camacho family – son Randy, 25, daughter Jocelyn, 23, son-inlaw Ozzie, 25, and Sophia, 18 – rotate shifts working seven days a week to provide excellent Italian style cuisine at their restaurant located at 68-100 Ramon Road (at the northeast corner of Landau) in Cathedral City. They are open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays from 3 to 9 p.m. House favorites include: Linguine with Clams ($9.99 Lunch and $10.99 Dinner). All dinners are served with soup or salad, homemade bread with garlic butter that is absolutely delicious. Other house favorites include: Chicken Limonigio made of tender boneless chicken sautéed in garlic lemon butter sauce with mushrooms and broccoli served on a bed of pasta shells. A House Specialty is their Shrimp Sophia, named after the youngest daughter, made with Shrimp and broccoli served over a bed of fettuccine in a creamy Alfredo sauce ($10.99 Lunch and $11.99 Dinner). From their Sandwich Menu be sure to try their delicious Hot Pastrami ($6.99 Small or $7.99 Large) or Club Sandwich ($7.99). All Specialty Sandwiches are served with pasta salad, French fries, potato chips or a house salad. You can add one of their soups, Italian Wedding or Minestrone for a mere $1.50. Don’t forget to try one of their nine Lunch Specials for only $6.99. Camacho, who was born and raised in Mexico City, said his journey into cooking Italian food started more than 30 years in San Bernardino where he worked for Alfredo’s I and II and Cicero’s for years before moving to Banning where he worked for Johnny Russo’s restaurant. “I decided to try it on my own and bought this restaurant in 2006,” he said smiling while cooking my Chicken Parmesan in the kitchen. It’s heart-warming to see an entire family working to make their dream come true, and the Camacho family is a perfect example of what a family can do when they all work together.” But let’s not forget their fabulous Pizzas, which could possibly be the best pizzas in Cathedral City.

Flat Bread with an Up-Beet Bite

It’s no wonder Mediterranean cuisine has taken the culinary scene by storm. Chefs and home cooks alike have fallen for this simple cooking style, with an emphasis on good-for-you foods such as vegetables, nuts, grains, beans and olive oil. Just a few ingredients, found in any supermarket, make a delicious Mediterranean-inspired flat bread that does double duty as an easy appetizer or light dinner. Pre-made flat breads come in many varieties – from basic pita and tortilla breads to whole grain, herb seasoned and even naan – a leavened, oven-baked flat bread popular in Indian cuisine. Choose your favorite, spread with prepared hummus and top with ready-to-eat jarred pickled beets. Using high-quality, jarred pickled beets saves time – the peeling and pickling are done for you. Aunt Nellie’s beets are picked, pickled and packed at their perfect ripeness, so they retain their farm fresh flavor and high antioxidant profile. For the ultimate Mediterranean twist, try a sprinkling of crumbled feta and toasted pine nuts, finished with a peppery punch of arugula – or toss on

$5 M Study of

Living LongerSTAR

Immortality Starts: Part 2

Last week this newspaper published the first of a series of columns I am writing about the $5 million grant given by the John Templeton Foundation to Professor John Fischer of the University of California, San Diego to study immortality. The huge grant will be used to finance two conferences and a number of research projects by scientists into various aspects of possible human immortality, near-death experiences and reincarnation. “We hope to bring to the general public a greater awareness of some of the complexities involved in simple beliefs about heaven, hell and reincarnation, and encourage people to better understand and evaluate their own beliefs about an afterlife and the role of those beliefs in their lives,” said Professor Fischer in announcing the grant. The following is excerpted from an interesting interview of Professor Fischer about his Immortality Project recently published on the Internet. Vinnie Rotondaro: “Another aim of your project is to examine whether or not it would be rational to desire immortality... If there is an afterlife—or for that matter, if we find a way to scan our minds onto a computer and live forever— would that be a good thing, or a bad thing?” Professor John Fischer: “Well, it’s interesting now because science is helping to increase our longevity. In 1900, the average life expectancy in developed countries was 47 years. In 2000, it was 76 years. Now it is almost 80 years. It’s increasing all the time—about five hours per day according to some estimates—and there are some biologists and some scientists who think that we’ll be

able to increase our longevity to the point where we’ll be able to live forever, absent being murdered. Just naturally living forever. “Now, those scientists are sort of out there and it’s very controversial stuff, but there are some biologists who are beginning to take seriously the possibility that we could significantly increase our longevity to the point that we could become immortal. And so the philosophical question is this: would that be desirable? Many philosophers have answered no. They say that death and limits give meaning to our lives and if we were to live forever our lives would lose their urgency and their preciousness. We could become alienated, or even just bored. I call these philosophers the Immortality Curmudgeons. That’s the first part of it. “Then there is a separate but related question, which is,

Mr. Life Extension Art Kunkin

would eternal life be desirable or something to hope for in an afterlife? And a similar debate goes on. There are curmudgeons, or pessimists, who say, “No, release me from existence; I don’t want to live forever. Mark Twain, you know, famously talked about heaven as a

very boring, unpleasant place. What do you do? Just hear all the harps and hang out with angels?” “But I’m not a curmudgeon. I’m an Immortality Optimist. I think that immortality could well be desirable, and that it wouldn’t necessarily be boring or unpleasant and monotonous. If my body is not deteriorating and—I don’t have to be rich—but if I have material means to live comfortably and to get around, then I could have projects and relationships. I could travel. I could pursue whatever I’m interested in intellectually. Conversely, the model that the Immortality Curmudgeons have is this: you’re in a station wagon with three children in the back seat driving from Los Angeles to San Francisco on Interstate 5, or from Miami to Boston on 95, and it’s a hot day, and you’re driving, and driving, and the kids start to unravel. Everyone just starts to unravel. Vinnie Rotondaro: Final question. Would you say that working on this project has changed you in any way? Professor John Fischer: “I’ve thought about what death

involves for a long time. If it’s just nothingness, how can we wrap our minds around it? And I’ve thought about whether immortality could be choice worthy.” “What has been new for me with this project is learning more about the emerging science of longevity and the possibility of immortality... What has also been new for me has been reading and learning about people’s recorded near-death experiences. Of course I knew about them before, but I hadn’t really immersed myself in them or systematically studied them. And so it’s been kind of eye-opening to learn that there’s a community of people out there who are very sincere and very earnest, and who have had experiences that have transformed them.” “Many people have emailed me or written me sharing their experiences, and often they seem to be very sincere and very detailed. One thing I’ve learned is to respect the fact that people have had these experiences and to take them seriously. Now, what it is that these experiences mean is another story?

I don’t necessarily believe they offer a glimpse into the afterlife, or that they show that we are more than our material bodies and brain—I have not been convinced of that. But I have come to realize that there is a phenomenon out there that has to be taken seriously, and that has to be respected.” Art Kunkin is the 84-year young journalist who founded, published and edited the alternative newspaper Los Angeles Free Press in the 1960s and 70s. He later became president of the Philosophical Research Society and now lives in Joshua Tree, California. A magazine cover story interview with Art about his research into stopping aging is available at www.alchemyrevealed. com.

STARBody, Mind & Spirit My friend is The Benefits Of Hiking taking her In The Coachella Valley arthritic dog for laser treatments can it really help? Hiking Expert Philip Ferranti…

The concept of using light-based energy for therapeutic purposes was first proposed by Albert Einstein in 1917, but the technology was not developed until the 1960s. Laser therapy has been utilized in Europe as far back as the 1970’s. The laser got its mainstream start in the United States after FDA clearance in 2002. Therapeutic lasers focus a beam of light that travels at specific wavelengths (red and near infrared) – emitting energy that can penetrate tissue. This energy accelerates the body’s natural healing mechanism by increasing circulation – bringing more blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. Resolving inflammation (the root cause of pain and loss of function) begins with the first treatment. Laser research reported on PubMed documents how it can stimulate tissue repair and new growth, making it useful in a wide arena, faster healing post-surgery, bone fractures, tendonitis, nerve damage, and can even help grow new hair! The best results were witnessed after laser technology advanced from the Class III to the Class IV – approved for use by medical professionals in 2006. Since that time, laser use has grown rapidly among sport doctors treating professional athletes with acute injuries, chiropractors treating various acute and chronic conditions, and should be on the wish list of every veterinarian dedicated to helping patients recover using a fast, painless procedure. There are no unwanted side effects. Class IV (also referred to as cold lasers – a distant cousin to surgical lasers that cut tissue) can be programmable to a range of frequencies in order to treat many different types of problems in dogs, cats, horses and humans. In the dog and cat, laser therapy is most commonly used to treat joint pain, traumatic injuries, and skin problems such as ear infections or infected wounds. Any painful condition that results in inflammation, even a ruptured disc pressing on the spinal cord, can be successfully treated. Once you have elected to start laser therapy, your veterinarian will recommend a number of laser sessions best suited for your pet’s condition. Acute problems can respond in three sessions or less. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week for several consecutive weeks, then tapering

off as improvement is seen. The typical treatment time is 3 to 8 minutes, depending on the surface size of the area. Cost will vary based on how many sites are chosen (pets suffering from arthritis can require multiple sites – called a laser bath) and package of treatments selected. You can expect to pay anywhere from $25 to $45 per treatment or purchase a package of eight to 10 treatments for around $300 to $380. I use the Class IV laser made by K-Laser USA.This instrument has been the most versatile tool in my medicaltoolkit. Got pain? Shine some laser light in on it!

Waters of Life Poured Forth For Thirsty Humanity

Saturday is the first full moon solar festival of the New Year. The full moon is a timing mechanism. It informs us that on one side of the Earth is the moon and on the other is the Earth. During full moon times the light of the moon (emotions, the past manyeons-ago when we lived on the moon) is shielded from us. Instead, the moon receives and reflects back to Earth only the light of the Sun, which, at this Saturday’s full moon, is Aquarius. The Sun’s light transforms and uplifts us. The heart of Aquarius (sign and the Age) is Jupiter, bestowing a love and wisdom that humanity seeks. The message this full moon is we are no longer living in the past. Should we attempt to, we will become crystallized. Those attempting a return to the past will be separated out. This intersection of old and new is creating the chaos in our world today. The Aquarius Sun tells us we are intelligent Sons and Daughters of Mind and that we are to begin to create the new world, a creation of new life in form and matter. We are called to be present-day magicians.

From the Ancient Commentary: “Let the magician stand upon the mountain top. Beneath him in the valleys and the plains, water and streams and clouds are seen. Above him is the blue of heaven, the radiance of the rising sun, the pureness of the mountain air. Each

sound is clear. The silence speaks with sound. Let the magician stand within the sun, looking from thence upon the ball of earth. From that high point of peace serene let him sound forth the words that will create the forms, build worlds and universes and give his life to that which he has made.” ARIES: You always need a goal and it’s best during these transitional times to have cooperative partners who undertake projects that you initiate. They help you

meet your goals. Your mind is concerned with friends and collective projects. You become more sociable, negotiating and amenable to sharing. You’ve become an asset. TAURUS: Your conciliating nature helps you get along with everyone and climb the ladder of success in whatever you do. You are able to adjust and be flexible. This allows you to ponder

upon multiple tasks and ideas that will create the new future. You understand that success brings change. You change everyone. GEMINI: Your mind roams here and there because you are interested in all areas of life – political, spiritual, moral, ethical. You want to be far away and also close to home. You need new fields of endeavor, new horizons to keep your mind alert. Sometimes you’re rebellious but you hide it well. Then you disappear. CANCER: Exploring the unknown and mysterious, especially the mystery of death calls to you. This is the next level of your study. You have often been deeply saddened when death occurs. Death is a liberation for the one who has died. It’s good to consider your own death - to ponder and prepare for it. This is as deep as one can get while living on Earth. LEO: It’s important to use your intelligence to foster agreements, cooperation, compromises and efficient communication with those close to you. Leo’s hidden skill (a gift) is the negotiator. The hidden side of you is Aquarius, the sign that is concerned with others. Your Leo self understands negotiation, eventually. You learn how to not be thoughtless. VIRGO: It is good for you to make a conscious choice to improve yourself daily. This creates deeper self-value and self-esteem. You are practical, interested in health, the day-to-day realities of food and exercise along with the life of the animal kingdom. Take all your concerns and focus for a while upon yourself. It

Drum Circle Honors New Year’s First Full Moon on Sunday JOSHUA TREE - The Joshua Tree Retreat Center at the Institute of Mentalphysics will host a community drum circle celebrating the first Full Moon of 2013 on Sunday, Jan. 27 from 7 – 9 p.m. Well-known Joshua Tree percussionist Sam Sloneker will facilitate the gathering, which will be held in the cozy comfort of the center’s Friendship Hall. “We made it through the end of the world, and I’m looking forward to our drumming together in honor of the new year’s first Full Moon,” says Sloneker. “The polarity effect created by the Sun and Moon pulling in opposing directions with Earth in the middle can bring on a period of intense energy and precarious balance. Playing together in our circle can help to ground and center us during this time of heightened energies, and it offers a wonderful opportunity for us to reconnect with ourselves and with each other as we embark on our journey into 2013. “Our drum circles are always lots of fun, so come and play with

us in celebration of this special time of aliveness and vibrancy, and invite your family and friends to join in our celebration.” Studies have shown participation in group drumming to offer a number of worthwhile benefits, including artistic selfexpression, community connection and interaction, an expanded sense of self and heightened sense of belonging, increased rapport with others, relief of stress, emotional balancing, and strengthening of the immune system. An article and video from

our August 2010 circle can be found at: http://www.jtrcc.org/ blog/2010/8/25/the-desert-nightis-filled-with-drumming.html And a short video of our Chinese New Year/New Moon drumming can be found at: http:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zM xovCESWc&feature=youtu.be. Participants are encouraged to bring drums, shakers, tambourines, etc. A number of instruments will also be available at the event.

The Barry Manilow Foundation is a supporter of Desert Samaritans for Seniors

Desert Samaritans Receives Major Donations

PALM DESERT - Desert Samaritans for Seniors, founded in 1998, serves as the premier advocacy nonprofit acting for low-income seniors in the Coachella Valley. The agency has recently received major donations including: From Wells Fargo, an unrestricted grant for client programs; a grant for direct client services from the S.L. Gimbel Foundation, via the Community Foundation Serving Riverside and San Bernardino Counties; from Gem Communications Group for outreach and education; and from the Barry Manilow Foundation. “We are overwhelmed by these generous donations of more

becomes the perfection of who you are. LIBRA: It’s a serious time for creative endeavors. Hobbies, entertainments, the arts, gardening, architecture. You’re amused and amusing when you finally stop working and manifest the active creative part of yourself. Concerned with money often, the artistic part of yourself can hide away till it can no longer be found. Don’t allow this to occur. Bring a playful spirit into everything you do. SCORPIO: You are the sign of privacy and it’s in private with those you love and trust that you truly communicate your inner thoughts, plans, fears and activities. Family at this time is deeply important. I use the word “family” meaning whomever you consider your deepest closest intimates. You always need privacy, safety and protection wherever you live. Without these as a shield you cannot function effectively in the world. SAGITTARIUS: Out and about, communicating, pondering aloud, moving here and there – all these activities are required so you can reflect upon world events and then be effective in your profession – whether it’s writing, publishing, teaching, working with the law, transportation, public relations or being a master gardener creating beauty in neighborhoods. Acquiring needed knowledge, always bringing forth intelligence, functioning through chaos and turmoil you become a master of your craft. CAPRICORN: You realize always what makes good sense and so you allow for nothing excessive, fuzzy or emotional

than $40,000 that will enable us to expand the scope of our services and the numbers of seniors we serve,” said Doug Morin. With more than 2,500 clients a year, Desert Samaritans serves seniors who are 60 and over and qualify as low income with a variety of services, including transportation for medical appointments, grocery relief, financial assistance, case management, plus information and referral. Program support is provided by both staff and volunteers who are an integral part of the agency’s efforts and are always needed. For more information, go to www.desertsamaritans.org, or call (760)837-9066. to obstruct that path you’ve chosen. You maintain health so that your intellect is clear which enables you to efficiently manage all aspects of daily life. Logic of mind, clear vision is what you seek and this keeps your feet on the ground. However, those feet have wings. AQUARIUS: You are curious by nature and adjust to surroundings no matter where you are. Interested in many things you bring raw nerve, intelligence and flexibility to all situations. At first you throw yourself into the world. Then you sit back and ponder the world. You seek opportunities, are adaptable and clever. You bring us the future. We like you. PISCES: Your life is led by noble and compassionate aspirations and goals. Many, including family, do not completely understand what it is you do. And why. You maintain an inner strength of conviction, an ability to concentrate on essential matters, and you have learned how to adapt. This is what all of humanity needs to learn. At times you need to withdraw into a quiet solitude. This has occurred in the last seven years. An emergence will be soon.

PUBLIC NOTICE

conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 16382 AVENIDA MERCED, DESERT HOT SPRINGS, CA, 92240. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $223,863.05. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier’s checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state. Said sale will be made, in an ‘’AS IS’’ condition, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Deed of Trust, advances thereunder, with interest as provided, and the unpaid principal of the Note secured by said Deed of Trust with interest thereon as provided in said Note, plus fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. If required by the provisions of section 2923.5 of the California Civil Code, the declaration from the mortgagee, beneficiary or authorized agent is attached to the Notice of Trustee’s Sale duly recorded with the appropriate County Recorder’s Office. 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 a 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 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 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case TS No. 12-0082520. 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.
