Benoit celebrated a ribbon cutting of the clinic at 11 a.m. Monday, Feb. 4 at 82915 Avenue 48 in Indio. “Riverside County is tremendously proud of building this beautiful clinic which is specially suited for the Volunteers in Medicine to fill a gap in medical care in our region,” said Benoit. “Our unique partnership has allowed the county and this chapter of the national organization to accomplish what neither could do

Photo Caption Correction

In our Jan. 30, 2013 issue, there was an incorrect photo caption in the Society section on page 5. The story entitled, “Museum Gala,” was submitted by our Photographer/Writer Pat Krause, who incorrectly attributed one of the co-chairs of the Palm Springs Art Museum gala as Robert Holland. It should have read Roberta Holland. The Desert Star Weekly regrets the error.

Palm Springs

Hollywood Makeup Icon Joe Blasco Expands Company

Artfair

PALM SPRINGS – Palm Springs Artfair hosts Digital Mosaics of Fine Art Photographer Alex Guofeng Cao Amongst a plethora of high profile international artists exhibiting at this year’s Palm Springs Artfair is the work of New York based photographer Alex Guofeng Co. Intricate and ingenious – the work of Chineseborn Cao is resonating on a global scale. A specialist of digitally enhanced photography, Cao’s ouvre sees him deconstructing iconic photographs and reassembling them with his trademark pixilated images. Cao’s detailed, awe-inspiring work sees him study and experiment with a variety of photographic techniques. His highly innovative photomosaic style melds old world and new, with digital innovation seeking inspiration by such masters as Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Edward Weston, and Robert “I Care, After” by Roy Lichtenstein

“James Dean VS Elvis” Mapplethorpe. Having been lauded internationally, the artist is constantly exhibiting, with recent shows including Art Basel Miami, The LA Artshow, Guy Hepner gallery in West Hollywood and the forthcoming Palm Springs Artfair opening Feb. 15. Asked about his choice of imagery for his work Cao reveals his preferences have spanned a spectrum of subject matter. His earlier “Legend,” series saw a fascination with icons and celebrity. “I have worked with many from Lindsay Lohan to Tommy Lee Jones, they share a common musicality that translates internationally.” Yet his current series, “Masters,” is rather an observation of classical icons over pop, with reinterpreted and recontextualised images of works by Roy Lichtenstein, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Edward Weston. In keeping with this historic homage, on a technical level Cao said that despite his fascination with the digital medium, monochrome tradition is something he still romanticizes. “The subtle gradations of tone between deep black and stark white are the generators for all the colors I need to create my world.” With a background in commercial photography, Cao immigrated to the U.S. from China at the age of 13. His career as a commercial photographer before the recent transition to fine art saw him working with a slew of high-caliber clients including magazines Vogue, Cosmopolitan New York Times Cartier Chanel and Kodak According to Los Angeles gallerist Guy Hepner, who is currently showing the work at his West Hollywood space, “Alex Guofeng Cao’s images are imposing and arresting to say the least. His powerful oversized fine art photographs and the armies of tiny images that

PALM SPRINGS - Joe Blasco, Hollywood’s iconic makeup artist and founder of Joe Blasco Makeup Artist Training Centers is making his mark in the Coachella Valley with the opening of a product warehouse in Palm Springs.

In support of our local economy and with a charitable heart, Blasco is seeking to hire disabled individuals to work at the warehouse putting labels on products, packing boxes and miscellaneous chores conforming to their abilities.

Presently with a school in Hollywood, California and one in Florida, Blasco has future plans to open an extended learning center with a Masters program for makeup artistry in the Coachella Valley. Other plans include a unisex boutique and a production studio for industry commercials patterned after his J.B. Stage television production studio in Hollywood. Blasco’s achievements and pioneering efforts in all areas of makeup artistry, including methods and products to assist AIDS and Cancer patients, has truly set him apart as the icon of the industry. From “beauty to the beast,” and in every area of the art, Blasco has enjoyed it all.

He has successfully experienced and mastered areas of makeup artistry far beyond application. But most importantly, he shares his knowledge with everyone and continues to create new platforms from which professional makeup

Hollywood Makeup Icon Joe Blasco can evolve to even greater heights. Blasco is always thinking “outside the box,” inventing, refining and creating new arenas within the all-encompassing realm of professional make-up artistry. To quote Ve Neill, five-time Academy Award-winning artist: “Joe Blasco is the only makeup artist whom I know who constantly and completely reinvents himself every three to five years!” Plans are currently underway for special bus tours to Blasco’s Hollywood School and Studio.

Frank Sinatra Jr.

y l n o t h g i n e onat the McCallum Theatre

PALM DESERT – Frank Sinatra Jr. originally planned a career as a pianist and conductor but show promoters had different ideas. On the evening of Sept. 8, 1963, the Royal Box of the Americana Hotel in Manhattan reopened for the fall season presenting a newcomer backed by the Tommy Dorsey Band. At 21, Sinatra Jr. made his debut into the big time. Throughout the 1960s, and into the mid-1980s, Sinatra Jr. appeared regularly in Las Vegas, opening for many stars in the main rooms and headlining in the lounges. In 1985, Sinatra Jr. opened at the Four Queens Hotel in downtown Las Vegas. Backed by a 17-piece orchestra, he reintroduced the lush big band sound to lounge patrons, sparking renewed interest in live music. Subsequently, his show was booked regularly at the resort during the next eight years. In 1992, he brought his show to the Desert Inn, the first time in 20 years that a big band had appeared in a lounge on the famed Las Vegas PALM SPRINGS – “It’s A Mad Mod World” will perform on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 7 – 10 p.m. at the former Santa Fe Savings and Loan located at 300 S. Palm Canyon Drive. The events will be hosted by Bella Da Ball, and feature cocktails, dinner and dancing to the retro tunes of DJ Eric Ornelas. Designed in 1960 by renowned architect E. Stewart Williams, the iconic Santa Fe Savings and Loan building is soon to become the new home of the Palm Springs Art Museum’s Edward Harris Center for Architecture and Design. Advanced for its time, this will be one of your last chances to party in this historic building during Palm Springs Modernism Week before it undergoes renovation.

strip. In October 1993, fans flocked to the Desert Inn where Sinatra Jr. was singing in the lounge and his more famous father was performing in the showroom. 2001 through 2003 brought Sinatra Jr. back to an old love, acting. He appeared in the HBO hit “The Sopranos,” and on the EFX network,

starred as the title character Stink Finger in an episode of the TV comedy “Son of the Beach.” In 2003, Sinatra Jr. appeared in Harrison Ford’s movie “Hollywood Homicide.” In 2006, he appeared on an episode of “Family Guy,” where he was introduced as the “Member of the Board.” He performed several songs during the show, accompanied by Stewie and Brian. He returned in a 2008 episode, where he sang with Brian again, with Stewie returning as a sideline investor supporting the duo. The songs of Frank Sinatra need to be sung and Sinatra Jr. has inherited that honor. In song and style, Sinatra, Jr. pays homage to his father, the singer, and the music that defines the Sinatra legend. McCallum Theatre presents Frank Sinatra, Jr. on Friday, Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $105, $85, $65 and $45. Tickets are available online at www.mccallumtheatre.com, or by calling the McCallum Theatre Box Office at (760) 340-2787.

“The festive evening is designed to let everyone take a step back in time to the

1960’s when Mad Men met Hippies, while raising money to assist deserving organizations serving those living with HIV/ AIDS in rural America, as well as scholarship funding for gay youth seeking a higher education. Many Gamma Mu Foundation scholarship recipients have often had to overcome impossible circumstances of discrimination just for being gay in their pursuit of an education,” says Bradford W.

It wasn’t two minutes later until the coach hit another grounder to the second baseman. He fielded the ball cleanly, threw to second and the shortstop threw to first to complete the double play. I believe the reason why the kid fielded the ball the second time was the confidence the coach instilled in that young man just minutes before. And that is one thing that’s sadly lacking in the business world today. Make a mistake and your job is on the line or another employee gets promoted ahead of you. That perfection thing is way overrated. I believe its one reason why we have so much corruption in the business world. It’s not that bad people won’t do bad things. They will in nearly every situation. But sometimes the corporate culture encourages otherwise good people to cut corners.

Why did they throw the ball to one base instead of the other? The coach gave the player the chance to explain what he was thinking but then he told them why doing it the way they had been taught would have been better. It was a great teaching model. The coach got his point across without belittling the kids. I don’t know how this team stacked up against others in their league. But one thing I do know is that team is going to be competitive in every game they play this year. The encouragement, teaching, support, discipline and preparation from their coaches all but assure that.

In its 30-plus years of helping people with addictions to narcotics, alcohol and pain killers overcome their tendencies and lead productive lives, the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage has never held a fundraiser until now. While the Betty Ford Center enjoys a global reputation for the help the Center gives, one of its lesser known activities is a Children’s Program that helps children ages seven through 14 learn about addiction through age-appropriate activities so that they realize that the disease of addiction is not their fault and they are not alone. As a way to communicate with the kids, Jerry Moe, National Director of Children’s Programs at the Center, and Tom Drennon, an award-winning designer, created a series of 10 books starring the character “Beamer the Bulb Boy.” Local resident Lois Horvitz made publication of the first batch of books possible. Beamer, the books central character, educates children about addiction through age-appropriate stories. He has many different

Lois Horvitz feelings and turns different colors depending on his feelings – from bright yellow when he’s happy to a deep blue when he’s sad. Because the initial publication of the series has garnered interest at addiction centers across the country, The Betty Ford Center Foundation plans to make the books available to children’s programs across the nation. To facilitate the availability of the books, the Foundation has created the Beamer Awards as a fundraiser. The event will take place on Mar. 8 at the Annenberg Theater, a part of the Palm Springs Art Museum, beginning at 7 p.m. with a special performance by Lucie Arnaz, followed by Spencer’s Restaurant catered dinner.

romantic Getaways Have you ever asked yourself: Why travel? Why leave the comforts of home to endure the hassle, the crowded flights and the expense? Recent research published by the U.S. Travel Association (USTA) has some answers to these questions that might surprise you. According to the USTA, nearly two-thirds of couples surveyed say that a weekend getaway is more likely to spark romance than either large or small gifts. More than seven in 10 people of those who travel as a couple believe that traveling inspires romance. More than three-quarters of the respondents who travel as a couple say they have a good sex life, compared to 63 percent of couples

who do not travel together. Twenty-eight percent of couples say their sex live improved after traveling together, and of these couples, 40 percent say that sex is permanently better after traveling together. Nearly two-thirds of couples reported that being more intimate is an important reason to vacation together, with nearly a quarter of the couples that did not take a trip together in the past year say they “do not have enough time for intimacy and sex.”

Harry Potter

First there were the comic book conventions, with attendees costumed as their favorite characters. Then, came the out-of-this-galaxy conventions, with visitors dressed as their favorite alien. Now it’s the time for more than 600 Harry Potter fanatics, dressed in their finest wizard robes and brandishing magic wands to prepare for the first annual Wizard Cruise, leaving Los Angeles Nov. 27 on a

four-night California coastal cruise aboard Princess Cruises’ Golden Princess. To insure the cruise is whimsically authentic, Princess Cruises teamed up with Whimsic Alley, a Los Angeles-based fantasyland that caters to the needs of Harry Potter fans as a purveyor of wands, quills, witches’ hats, curios, wizard jewelry and apparel. Whimsic Alley is no novice when it comes to delivering a Henry Potter experience, hosting events around the world based on the fictional hero. According to Whimsic Alley’s event coordinator, guests will be entertained practically around the clock, having been fully immersed in the wizard-world experience, including becoming students at a wizarding academy and being subject to the challenges and ordeals inherent in that experience. The price of the cruise starts at $650 per person and includes food, lodging, entertainment and activities. The costs for your paranormal experiences: priceless.

PALM SPRINGS - Cars with big tail fins will join trucks with running boards and sleek sports cars at McCormick’s Palm Springs Collector Car Auction, set for Feb. 2224 at the Spa Resort Casino parking lot. The three-day auction, with more than 550 collectable cars, trucks and motorcycles, is now in its 27th year. “Collectable cars and trucks are a wise investment, giving buyers a good return on their money,” said Keith McCormick. “And they are fun to own.” Auction sales have approached $6 million at recent events. That generates more sales tax revenue for the City of Palm Springs than the International Film Festival, Modernism Week, Tour de Palm Springs and the White Party combined. From 7,000 to 8,000 people pass through the gates each day during the three-day auction. Many are visitors from out of town who stay at hotels, eat at local restaurants and shop at local stores, which also stimulates the local economy, McCormick said. The auction contracts with

About 7,000 people per day flock to the Collector Car Auction each day at the Spa Resort Casino parking lot in Palm Springs, some to buy, some to watch a parade of cars like this candy-apple red Mustang Fastback. more than 100 people who work the event. Nine different companies employ people who assist, including the security company that employs 25 guards and the company that erects the cyclone fence around the site. The auction welcomes the local Lions Club, Angel View and other charities with free space to use as for fund raising. If you are not shopping for your dream car, just show up with your camera, McCormick said, and enjoy the day. Vehicles can sell for a few thousand dollars up to six figures but we have been trending toward more high-end cars. The auction is free and open to the public starting at 3 p.m. on Friday. It continues on Saturday and Sunday, with tickets selling for $15 for one day or $25 for two days. The tickets include $10 worth of free cash play complements of the Spa Resort Casino.

The auction will stream live via the Internet for three days and people who register in advance may bid for cars by phone. At previous auctions, people tuned in from across the United States, Europe and New Zealand to bid on cars. Four cameras will be set up to show different views of each car as it passes through the auction tent. A special bank of phones will be set up to receive telephone bids. To connect to the live broadcast and receive registration information, go to www.classic-caraution.com For more information and a description of cars to be auction, go to www.Classic-CarAuction.com.

MusicSTAR Legends Return GEORGE BENSON With Masterworks at the McCallum

Groundbreaking bluesman Otis Taylor’s 13th full-length album “My World Is Gone,” country music singer-songwriter Gary Allan’s confessional “Set You Free,” fabled singer Eric Burdon’s probing “Til’ Your River Runs Dry” and power pop outfit Throwback Suburbia’s “Shot Glass Souvenir” add up to a sterling field of epic releases that will excite discerning music fans.

Artist: Otis Taylor

Title: My World Is Gone (Telarc International) You might be interested if you like: The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Indigenous, Robert Johnson. Tell me more: The Civil War was not the only great struggle that played out in the last half of the 19th century. The final push by the U.S. government and uncaring settlers to kill Native Americans or force them onto reservations reached its zenith in a long series of actions that had tragic consequences for the Kiowa and Comanche, Nez Perce and Apache, or the countless other tribes that comprised the indigenous people who lived here. Leave it to master Colorado-based bluesman Otis Taylor to chronicle this dreadful chapter of history with songs that display their force with the musical equivalent of a herd of Buffalo thundering across the Great Plains. “My World Is Gone”

was inspired when Taylor and his friend, Indigenous lead singerguitarist Mato Nanji (a member of the Nakota Nation), were having a conversation backstage about history; at one point Nanji stated “My world is gone.” Those four words inspired Taylor to craft a collection of songs that doesn’t preach about injustice, but simply recounts episodes that hammer home the lessons of history in spades. Against the backdrop of trance blues that unfold with power and beauty, the amazing “Sand Creek Massacre Mourning” (complete with Taylor’s hypnotic banjo playing and guest Nanji’s brilliant lead guitar work), “Blue Rain In Africa” and the title track “My World Is Gone” are among the essential tracks on one of the first great albums of 2013. Information: www.OtisTaylor.com.

Artist: Gary Allan

Title: Set You Free (MCA Nashville) You might be interested if you like: Jason Aldean, Zac Brown Band Tell me more: Gary Allan’s ninth studio album “Set You Free” finds the country singer’s odyssey of continually taking a larger role in his successful career in full gear. Many of the best songs on the album are those he helped write, and he adds some of his own fiery lead guitar work on the release. Modern country is often criticized for its lack of real world depth but Allan’s 17-year career has proven honest songs and the heft of the performance of those songs are central to who he is as an artist. “One More Time” (which he wrote with Hillary Lindsey and Matt Warren) is as accessible as anything on country radio but is infused with the weight of someone who knows they have a single shot at getting this

thing called life right. He handles romantic loss on “You Without Me” with an equal amount of candor, with his voice injecting plenty of emotive strength to tie it all together. Information: www. garyallan.com.

Artist: Eric Burdon

Title: Til’ Your River Runs Dry (ABKCO Records) You might be interested if you like: The Animals, War, Eric Clapton. Tell me more: Fifty years after he rose to fame as lead vocalist of the Animals, Eric Burdon continues to explore new musical ground. On his new solo disc “Til’ Your River Runs Dry,” the far-flung likes of politics, religion and saving the environment are tackled via blues-rock tunes that boast the

timeless sounds he forged with The Animals, and later, with funk pioneers War and on his solo work. The driving “Water,” ferocious “Old Habits Die Hard,” New Orleansstyled blues tune “Devil and Jesus” and soulful ballad “Wait” are all standouts on the 71-yearold Englishman’s latest release. Information: www.abkco.com.

Artist: Throwback Suburbia

Title: Shot Glass Souvenir (Throwback Suburbia) You might be interested if you like: Shoes, Brian Wilson, Electric Light Orchestra. Tell me more: Power pop is rarely as glorious as on the latest full-length effort from Portlandbased Throwback Suburbia. Catchy

PALM DESERT – So many times in contemporary popular music, in jazz, rock, blues, folk or beyond, the man with the guitar is the fulcrum on which all other sounds and voices hinge. He’s the core, the engine, the captain who leads and inspires the rest of the team. George Benson has been that man for nearly a half century. In a career that spans five decades, more than 30 recordings as a leader and 10 Grammy Awards, Benson has used his jazz roots as the foundation for an engaging mix of pop, R&B and other shades that add up to a style that appeals to a broad mainstream audience. Along the way, he has also established himself as a formidable jazz singer, one whose biggest career hits have showcased his vocals as well as his guitar chops. In short, this guitar man is the complete package. From the very beginning, Benson has embraced this improvisational approach to recording and performing. At age eight, he was singing and playing the ukulele in local nightclubs in his native Pittsburgh. By his teenage years, he had switched to guitar and he had stopped singing to focus on his instrumental work. His musical sensibilities shifted toward jazz, due in large part to his George Benson at the McCallum

exposure to records by Wes Montgomery, Charlie Christian and Charlie Parker. Benson brings his instrumental and vocal prowess to the fore once again in “Guitar Man,” his most recent release. “Guitar Man” is a 12-song collection that includes a mix of jazz and pop standards, some in a combo setting and some solo, but all of them tied together seamlessly by Benson’s soulful and exploratory signature sound. Lending a hand on this recording is a solid team made up of veterans and newcomers alike – pianist Joe Sample, keyboardist and musical director David Garfield, bassist Ben Williams and drummer Harvey Mason. The crew came together in the studio with a minimum of prior rehearsal time and that impromptu sensibility comes across in the final product, much of which came together with minimal takes in a single day of recording. This performance of George Benson on Saturday, Feb. 16 at 8 p.m., as part of the Fitz’s Jazz Café series at the McCallum Theatre.. Tickets are $105, $85, $75 and $55 and are available at www.mccallumtheatre.com, or call (760) 340-2787. The McCallum Theatre is located at 73000 Fred Waring Drive.

choruses, shining vocal harmonies and virtuoso musicianship are fully on display across the 11song “Shot Glass Souvenir.” Lead singer Jimi Evans’ soaring voice is used fully in support of propulsive rockers such as “Down to Love,” the psychedelic-tinged pop opus “Sinking Feeling (Ray of Hope)” and sweet ballads (“Here Again,” “Best

of Intentions”) while the magic of the Beach Boys’ vocal harmonies are recalled in the glowing “Side Effects.” The musical glue holding it all together? Three of the five members of Throwback Suburbia are fully involved in writing the fantastic material that fills the independent release. Information: www.ThrowbackSuburbia.com

Judaysia Desert Beehive

Palm Springs Modernism Week would not be complete without the Beehive and the sexy women who wore it in the sixties as well as today. M o d e r n Beauty Salon magazine asked Margaret Vinci Heldt of Chicago to design a hairstyle to reflect the coming decade of the 1960’s. The Beehive was born. It was soon adopted by celebrities and the masses.

The father of mod Pierre Cardin launched his Spring 13 Menswear collection. The futuristic architectural shaped suits sported big buttons and were accessorized with cyborg style sunglasses. The collection is PVC, tartan and tweed for summer. “I was the youngest couturier in Paris when I started, and now I’m the oldest, it’s extraordinary I’m still here!” said the 90 year old uber successful designer who worked with the likes of Christian Dior and Elsa Schiaparelli in his youth, dressed the Beatles, brought high-end style to Communist China and created the menswear shows in Paris some 60 years ago. “Aesthetics is simply my craft; I’ve still got gasoline for tomorrow.” The multimillionaire has not been slowed by age.

Making a Difference

Skin Deep

By Bill Marchese

PALM DESERT - She said it with a smile. “As long as I’m alive, I’m going to make a difference,” said Guadalupe Ponte of Scar Treatment Recovery Center in Palm Desert. She is definitely making a difference in the lives people living with scars, both physical and emotional. The clients who show up on Thursday nights at her clinic receive free scar and tattoo removal and related services. Many are former gang members who want to remove the ink reminder of their past life. Blanca Bera, 31, of Cathedral City, survived breast cancer at age 27 and had a double radical mastectomy. Reconstruction surgery resulted in scars on both sides of her chest. She will receive camouflage treatment above and below the breasts, Ponte said, which hid the scars by adding pigment to match her natural skin color. James Pagan, 26, of Cathedral City, has a sleeve of tattoos on both arms, some nearly 10 years old when he was a young gang Guadalupe Ponte removes a scar

Salt solution is used to remove ink from a tattoo. member. Every tattoo has a history or a memory, Pagan said. The word Pachuco, on his arm is one memory he would rather forget. A tat on his neck, Only God Can Judge Me, can sour a job interview. He plans to remove all of his tattoos eventually, starting first with the name of his former girlfriend, a source of mild angst with his present girlfriend. Students at Pontes Scar Treatment Recovery Center, which recently earned Non-profit of the Year honors from the Coachella Valley Chamber of Commerce, handle the work. Under direct supervision by Ponte, the students learn the business of tattoo removal, scar revision, permanent eyeliner and other cosmetic treatments. The clients receive free treatment on Thursday nights as the students learn, a win-win, Ponte said. Ponte said she treats all skin types, colors and scars resulting from surgery, acne, burns, vein removal and other causes. Treatments can vary from one session to several. As a related service, Ponte founded a nonprofit Scars to Freedom, which provides free scar revision to veterans who carry wounds of war. One Marine told Ponte, “Every time I see my scars, I’m reminded of the solders I left behind. I hear screams and explosions and begin to tremble as I relive the trauma. It’s a nightmare I must forget. As my scars are removed I hope to let go the

painful memories of how I got them.” President Obama recognized her work with a Call to Service award and medal last September. She has consulted with 80 vets in the past three years and provided scar revision services to 50 men and women. The VA hospitals, which take care of wounds, don’t do cosmetic surgery, nothing for appearances and scars, Ponte said, which serve as an ugly reminder of the psychological wounds of war. For more information, call (760) 340-1136 or go to www.scarsgone. com.

Michelles tattoo of a Phoenix rising from the ashes, a work in progress, is a symbol the changes and progress she has made in her life. It’s a Phoenix rising from the ashes, which represents the changes she has been making in her life, starting over and getting it right this time. M i c h e l l e Honeyman of Palm Springs said the tattoo, which starts under her arm pit, moves down her rib cage and hip and ends just below the knee encompasses a big part of her life. Each feather on the Phoenix has an eye on it, which is about having a better perception of life about seeing things better.

A work-in-progress, she has 50 hours of work on the artwork may have another 20 or 30 to go before it is finished. After her father died and her marriage ended, “I felt lost,” she said. “I was at ground zero and had to figure myself out and where I was going with my life. “The Phoenix is about me doing what I want to do and not caring what anyone else thinks. I don’t need approval from anyone. No one can really see the tat, unless I’m in a bikini.” Tattoos resonate with her. “I got my first tat at age 17 and I plan to continue having body art for the rest of my life.”

STARPalatePleasers What better way to show love and affection on Valentine’s Day than by sharing a delicious gift made from the heart? A sweet treat is the perfect way to say “I love you” to the important people in your life.

• Sweep ‘em off their feet with a stylish presentation – pretty patterned window boxes and heart shaped bags are the perfect way to present your Valentine treats.

Share Sweets from the Heart

A national survey by Wilton found that a quarter of women under age 55 bake as part of their Valentine’s Day celebration. And although women typically spend less than men on Valentine’s Day gifts, they give to more people in their lives – including a spouse or boyfriend, children, extended family, friends and co-workers. Among the most popular treats to prepare and share are cookies, cakes and cupcakes. Try these tips from Wilton and get ready to bake to your heart’s content. Let your love take shape with the Valentine Cookie Pan; heart shapes and thoughtful sayings like “Be Mine” will surely make that special someone know how much you care. Go for a dip and jazz up everyday cookies by giving them a chocolate dunk and sprinkle toppings. Show your true colors and surprise your sweetie by filling the center of a yellow cupcake with pink or red batter. It’s easy to do with the new Two Tone Cupcake Pan. • Dress up with baking cups and picks, which are the ideal accessories for your cupcakes; red gingham or pink polka dot baking cups adds festive flair.

Sweetheart Surprise Cupcakes

Gingham Baking Cups 2 packages (16.5-18.25 oz. ea.) white cake mix Eggs, oil and water to prepare mixes Red-Red and Rose Icing Colors 1 can (16 oz.) White Ready-To-Use Decorator Icing Micro Hearts, Fill Your Heart Mix, Chocolate Hearts Mix or Valentine Nonpareils Sprinkles or Red or Pink Sugars Preheat oven to 350°F. Place baking cups into standard muffin pan from the Two-Tone Cupcake Pan kit. Prepare white cake mix following package instructions. Remove about 1-1/2 cups batter from bowl; divide into 2 smaller bowls. Tint one smaller bowl of batter red, the other rose. Place cupcake insert into first row of baking cups; fill center 2/3 full with red or rose batter. Fill remaining cup 2/3

Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to show someone how much you care. Whether you want to say “xoxo” to family or “be mine” to a new Valentine, red velvet is the flavor that says it best. “Amid a sea of pink holiday confections, red velvet stands alone with its vibrant hue and rich taste. It has a unique flavor that is not quite vanilla and not quite chocolate,” said Mary Beth Harrington of the McCormick Kitchens. “Red velvet is also surprisingly versatile, inspiring a range of creative presentations, from creamy hot chocolate to decadent breakfast pancakes to cream-filled cupcakes. Simply said, people love it.” These Red Velvet Brownie Conversation Hearts are a perfect project for the whole family. You can easily vary the number of drops of red food color to make icing in every shade, from puppy-love pink to ravishing rose. Add the final sweet touch with edible words of love. For a simplified version, glaze the brownie hearts and decorate with red and pink sprinkles. For colorful images and instructions on how to create more festive sweet treats like these, visit www.McCormick.com or www. Facebook.com/MccormickSpice. Visit the “Red Velvet, My Way” board at www.Pinterest.com/ McCormickSpices to find inspiration for a personalized take on red velvet.

My editor has told me that there is not enough room in this issue for my regular column about Living Longer but has given me a few inches to explain what I do in my meditation classes at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center. A person can do many things when they relax their body and close their eyes. They can go to sleep. However, if they stay awake and focus their thoughts on a particular subject, they can perhaps solve a particular problem. Focusing on choices in silence might result in a useful decision to choose a specific action. Another kind of meditation consists of focusing on a positive thought. This is often done by repeating to oneself a particular phrase, sometimes called a mantra. Very powerful personal results can occur when a group of people silently focuses on a particular problem or gives voice to a particular mantra. The energy

of the group gives energy to each individual participating. Sometimes sitting in quiet meditation with a respected spiritual teacher or mentor provides spiritual energy. In my own classes, I teach a Tibetan meditation designed to make a mental person more emotional and physical, an emotional person more intellectual and physical, a physical person more emotional and mental. This training of unused abilities makes a person more capable of dealing with various life situations. Other meditations I teach help individuals live longer in their physical bodies and respond better when sick or experiencing an accident or death. In short, meditations can be a very practical use of ones time. 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.

“We will get to a point 15 years from now where we will be adding more than a year every year to your remaining life expectancy, where the sands of time are running in rather than running out, where your remaining life expectancy actually stretches out as time goes by. “Information defines your personality, your memories, your skills…And we ultimately will be able to capture that information and actually recreate it. So then we will back ourselves up… (The information) will be there in case it gets damaged. So if you hit the proverbial bus and it damages part of your brain, you can recreate that.” Kurzweil has said that he wants to bring his father, who died in 1970, back to life. “The idea is to create an avatar that looks and acts like my father, based on the information we have about him, or anyone else. The more information we have about that person, the better the job we can do. The goal would be to pass a ‘Fredric Kurzweil Turing test,’ that is for the avatar to be indistinguishable from the original person to the people who knew that person. In the case of my father, that is becoming an easier test as our memories of him are fading.” He also predicts that by 2045 machines will be more human-like and more intelligent than humans. One possibility is that there may be a war between humans and intelligent machines that will result in the defeat of humanity. On his website, singularity.com, Kurzweil said, “The nonbiological intelligence created (by 2045) will be 1 billion times more powerful than all human intelligence today. “I think human and computer intelligence will be mixed together just as it is now. We have conflicts today between groups of humans that are both enhanced by intelligent technology. A war between a group that used the latest technology and a group of humans who eschewed modern technology would be a very short war.” “My project at Google is to help create a technology that will become familiar with your concerns and will find information that will meet your needs without your having to ask for it. For example, it might pop up and

A new biological virus comes out (and) these little nanobots could download their software to combat that new pathogen. “We are already much smarter and more productive because of the brain extenders we have, ranging from Google to Wikipedia. When these services went on strike for one day last year to protest the federal Stop Online Piracy Act legislation, I felt like a part of my brain had gone on strike. We are going to literally expand the scope and scale of our neocortex, which is where we do our thinking. Thinking bigger and bolder thoughts will ultimately enable us to overcome the major challenges that our civilization faces.

Ray Kurzweil, the newly appointed Director of Engineering at Google, is the leading spokesperson for “Singularity.” This is the concept that by 2045 artificial intelligence technology will be so developed that people will have many tiny microcomputers in their bodies resulting in greater health, a much more powerful brain than at present and significantly longer lives. Kurzweil said, “We already have computerized devices that are placed inside the body and even connected into the brain, such as neural implants for Parkinson’s disease and cochlear implants for the deaf. These devices can already wirelessly download new software from the cloud. Technology is shrinking at an exponential rate, which I’ve measured at about 100 in 3D volume per decade. At that rate, we will be able to introduce blood cell-sized devices that are

People magazine named him “the preeminent Native American filmmaker of his time.” His debut film “Smoke Signals” was based on a series of short stories by Native American writer Sherman Alexie. It debuted in 1998 at the Sundance Festival winning the Filmmakers Award Dramatic and Audience Award Dramatic. Since that debut, Chris Eyre has made a number of distinctive films such as “Skinwalkers” and the signature film for the National Museum of American Indian, A Thousand Roads. He newest film release is “Hide Away,” starring Josh Lucas, Ayelet Zuver and James Cromwell. Currently, he is the Chair of the Moving Image Arts Department of the Santa Fe University of Art and Design.

Every year, the late Chairman of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, Richard M. Milanovich, attended Native FilmFest. He was a true lover of films of all genres. It is most fitting that we honor him with the good wishes of his family by establishing the Richard M. Milanovich Award for Distinguished Contributions to Indigenous Film. Although not an annual award, the Museum will present the first Award to Native filmmaker Chris Eyre at the 2013 festival. Tickets to the festival will be affordably priced at $10 for Adults and $7 for Senior Adults (60+), Youth (16 and under), Students, and Active Military Personnel. All Access Passes are $70.

Valentine’s Day – “be(ing) of love a little more careful…”

Valentine’s Day is Thursday. Aries moon says “Let’s do something new and different. Let’s get out and about, move around, challenging the ways we’ve done Valentine’s Day before.” Valentine’s Day this year is free and easy, nurturing, friendly, happy-go-lucky, cheery, lighthearted, happy and optimistic. Let’s make Valentine’s day all of these. With sweet treasures in between, ”be(ing) of love a little more careful…” (e.e.cummings). Friday’s Taurus moon offers us overindulgent sweets. Mars/Pluto helps us overcome. Saturday Mars in Pisces trines Saturn in Scorpio creating a sensitive push/pull, desire/ discipline situation. The Gemini moon on Sunday offers dualities (this/that, you/me, here/there) seeking integration. It happens with love. Monday Sun enters Pisces, last sign of the zodiacal year. It’s President’s Day (Lincoln & Washington). Saturn in Scorpio turns stationary retrograde (11.32 degrees). Saturn remains retro till July 7th (4.49 degrees). All structures, especially our social ones, slow down. We can’t accurately assess what’s expected of us. Rules and boundaries are questioned. They change. “No” means “yes”. Past projects and commitments must be completed. We cannot assume any new ones. We reorganize. Internally first. What we thought was firm and orderly turns upside down. So crystallization can shatter. So we can get on with the work of building the new Era Community. ARIES: Your energy becomes quiet, going into hiding. You will look very calm and composed. However, internally you’re deeply reviewing your mission, what your dreams are and how to make them manifest into real life? You find you like to help others, you become more sensitive, hold babies more, cry often and identify as a humanitarian. The artistic becomes important, music and painting, dance and drama, religion and spirituality. You’re up at night. TAURUS: It becomes clear that you uphold ideas that contain the truth of the reality of what is occurring in our world. You are very concerned about society, the circulation of real news and real ideas. You begin to identify as a scientist, one who observes the actual facts of life. You also begin to have an interest in astrology, the king of sciences, the Science of Relationship. You realize astrology is the language, not only of the gods, but of the new Aquarian age of astrology. You don’t want to be left behind. GEMINI: Work becomes very important. It doesn’t matter what the work is. Work is child’s play to

some. Work for others cultivates and builds civilizations. The work of the Devas builds form. Each year your knowledge base improves and this builds upon your success. You have become reliable, seek things old, rare and architecturally interesting and you come to realize that the next kingdom to turn to is the Kingdom of Souls, the 5th kingdom. It holds all promises. CANCER: You become

Risa’s

STARS Risa D’Angeles

interested in cultures, especially those far away. You have a unique talent for buying the most perfect gift for others. A feeling of optimism has begun to grow from within. You think about traveling, of leaving your home for places unknown. You teach all the time, every time you talk. You must begin, and continue, to write down dreams, impressions, thoughts, ideas and experiences daily. You think of becoming a world traveler. LEO: Even though you don’t believe it, and even though you would like it to be true (it is), you’re attractive to everyone you meet. Charisma flows from you, even (especially) when you’re silent. You will learn how to work better with money and resources. It’s most important to share and tithe and help others in need. Your passions contain both fear and magic, loss and trust, struggle and love. You sort them out. VIRGO: You seek active cooperation with others close to you. At times you can be forceful in relationships. It’s good to be with partners and friends who have calm temperaments. You seek to have happiness in relationships. Great resources are available through marriage and partnerships. Take great care with all interactions. Allow an aura of collaboration to exist between you and others. Teamwork is your key to success. LIBRA: For the next weeks you will exert your energy through energetic physical work. You do this to improve conditions in all environments you live and work in. You will attempt to instill order and organization, arrange, tidy, regulate and even classify things in order to make life more healthy, improved and more beautiful. Gardening is an excellent activity and outcome of the energies influencing you. You put all

things in order. SCORPIO: It’s important to pursue things that please and reward you, allow your competition to be exercised and a bit of flamboyance to come through. All of these can emerge if you focus upon the creative part of yourself. When you are creative, a new self-identity comes forth. Affection from children and little ones provides you with a spontaneous happiness and joy. Real companionship gives you the same. Who will you spend time with? SAGITTARIUS: Home and family are important. There’s a desire to be at home and to have (own) a home. A desire to create a new family and to establish roots becomes strong and focused. There is a need for security, for devotion from one who loves you. There is an inner restlessness until these needs begin to come true. Create harmony in all parts of your life. It will magnetize all that you need, soothing you till everything you need comes along. CAPRICORN: You are working on building your mind, using the movements and energy of your body to enter into a greater state of awareness – a state of yoga. Yoga means “union.” At times you compete against yourself. At other times, bliss sets in. You enjoy such learning, study and contemplation. In Tibetan monasteries, the monks learn through debate and discussion. You’re a good student. You’re doing many jobs at once. Poised at the center of each. AQ UA R I U S : Business enterprises and financial dealings are of concern. Use all money with care and resourcefulness. Something’s changing and it may take a bit more money. You are strong-willed and determined when you know your direction. You thrive on the challenge of looking for more and better ways of living. You enjoy life, even when some needs seem unmet. Seek the color of every sunrise. Listen for the first sound of morning birds singing. PISCES: Personal leadership will call forth your self-expression and you will leap into opportunities with courage and confidence. Your willpower and willingness is increased when you know you’re the first and best in your field. You will achieve much this year. Be careful not to overwork. You can also become ill if your health is not tended to carefully. You will also be tested. Allow events to come and go.

The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee`s Sale is estimated to be $206,834.73 (Estimated), provided, however, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary`s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier`s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee.

If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder`s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about Trustee Sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call Agency Sales and Posting at 714-730-2727 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address on the previous page for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA05000601-11-2.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder`s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

etc…STAR Dispensary closed continued from page 1

Cathedral City has a ban on medical marijuana dispensaries. This decision comes on the heels of a number of other decisions involving dispensaries in both Cathedral City and Rancho Mirage. Recent rulings involving those cities include the Dec. 4, 2012 Fourth District Court of Appeal ordered that Rancho Mirage Safe Access Wellness Center located at 72067 Highway111 be closed. Judge John Evans issued an order on Dec. 14, 2012 that Grasshopper dispensary be closed in Cathedral City, and on Jan. 10, Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Gunther issued a preliminary injunction ordering TODAZE Remedy closed in Cathedral City. Superior Court Judge Harold Hopp issued a preliminary injunction on Jan. 23 ordering the Spot Collective closed in located at 69730 Highway 111 in Rancho Mirage. Then, on Feb.

1, Judge Hopp denied the request by Remedy, Inc., to force the city of Rancho Mirage to authorize it to open a dispensary at 69550 Highway 111. On Feb.7, Judge White denied Desert Heart Collective’s motion for reconsideration of his previous decision denying the dispensary over $700,000 in attorney’s fees against the City of Rancho Mirage, deciding instead that the City does not owe the dispensary any money. The next day, on Friday, Feb. 8, Judge White issued a preliminary injunction ordering Desert Dank Deals closed in Cathedral City. “In short, the cities of Rancho Mirage and Cathedral City, combined, have prevailed on medical marijuana dispensary issues seven times before four different judges and one Court of Appeal within about two months,” said Steve Quintanilla attorney for Cathedral City and Rancho Mirage with the law firm of Green, de Bortnowsky & Quintanilla, LLP

(GD&Q) located in Rancho Mirage. “The local courts are consistently ruling in favor of cities on issues related to medical marijuana dispensaries. However, all municipalities look forward to the upcoming ruling from the California Supreme Court which is expected to

greatly increase legal clarity on this issue,” Quintanilla said. “We are cautiously optimistic that the California Supreme Court will explicitly recognize the rights of cities to regulate land use within their respective jurisdictions, in order to protect the public’s health, safety

and welfare. “In the end, however, I suspect this will all end up before the U.S. Supreme Court, like other issues that involve the complex intersection of state and federal laws, such as same sex marriage, abortion, immigration and gun control.”
