Judy Gigante takes the reigns

Judy Gigante - Cabot Museum’s New Historian DESERT HOT SPRINGS - The Cabot Museum Foundation Board wishes to announce the appointment of Judy Gigante as the Museum’s new historian. Gigante has been with the museum since 2007 and been a tireless volunteer serving as a Director on the Foundation Board. She was very instrumental

in the publication of the collected newspaper articles that Cabot Yerxa wrote titled: “On the Desert Since 1913.” The book is in its second printing. Gigante’s enthusiasm and love for the history of the Pueblo as well as its builder Cabot Yerxa has filled in many gaps in Cabot’s fascinating life story.

Gigante’s loves research, has traveled to Hawaii to interview Cabot Yerxa’s only grandchild and in June she will travel to Nome, Alaska to work with the Nome Museum. In 1900 when Cabot was a teenager, he traveled alone to Alaska and had many adventures there. “As we research and uncover

more of Cabot’s life, we begin to understand and appreciate more about him. His life story is one of inspiration. I give tours at the museum and our visitors are always amazed at his adventurous and compassionate spirit…our museum tour is a gem,” said Gigante. Continued on page 20

Cabot’s History Revisited The Cabot’s Museum Foundation© has given the Desert Star Weekly permission to reprint one article each week originally written by Cabot Yerxa under the tag line “On the Desert Since 1913” for the Desert Sentinel. They also have given us permission to reprint old black and white photos, as well as more modern color photos to accompany the articles. We would like to thank members of the Cabot’s Museum Foundation board for placing their trust and faith in the newspaper. Go to page 15 to read his first. First, an introduction about Cabot Yerxa, from www.cabotsmuseum.org: Before settling in the California desert, Cabot Yerxa led an adventurous life, traveling to Mexico, Cuba, Alaska and Paris. In 1913 Cabot homesteaded 160 acres in what is now Desert Hot Springs. Pressed for water, he dug a well

with pick and shovel, discovering the now famous hot mineral waters of Desert Hot Springs. Nearby, through a second well, he discovered the pure cold water of the Mission Springs Aquifer. These two wells, hot and cold, give the area its name – Miracle Hill. Cabot began construction on his pueblo-style home in 1939 and worked on it until his death in 1965 at the age of 81. The Pueblo was abandoned after Cabot’s death. A Desert Hot Springs businessman and acquaintance of Cabot Yerxa, Cole Eyraud (1921 -1996), purchased the property and helped restore the Pueblo to its historic state. After Eyraud’s death, his family donated the property to the city of Desert Hot Springs to continue the legacy of a historic museum and art gallery.

Ground-breaking Immigration Reform

RIVERSIDE – Supervisors Marion Ashley and John J. Benoit announced their support for comprehensive immigration reform and unveiled a resolution in support of a bipartisan plan put forward by a group of U.S. senators. “I feel strongly that the time for immigration reform is now and that the best choice to achieve that is the bipartisan proposal by eight U.S. senators,” said Supervisor Marion Ashley. “For the welfare of Riverside County and of our country, this reform is needed now. We cannot wait any longer.” At Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, Ashley and Benoit asked their fellow board members to vote on their groundbreaking resolution and put the county on record in support of the senators’ multi-pronged proposal. “As a former Highway Patrol commander and state legislator, I have been troubled by how life is made far worse for immigrants lacking legal status, including minor children and agricultural workers,” said Supervisor John J. Benoit. “A rational and functioning immigration system will strengthen the local

Immigration reform is a hot topic economy and the county’s ability to serve people when they are in need.” Major provisions of the immigration reform framework include: continued enhancement of border security/nation defense, a tough but fair pathway to citizenship, a guest worker program for subsistence-wage workers, a special provision to ensure minor children are treated separately, a registration program to combat visa overstays and an improved process for admitting future workers to serve our nation’s workforce needs that simultaneously protects all workers.

Again, Economics was taught in college not high school back in the 70s. Lastly, I observed the Apex Credit Recovery class taught by Jeff Burke where students worked independently on Apple computers to complete courses they dropped, failed or neglected to sign up for. Some students could “test or quiz out” of the required courses, while others worked at their own pace. The day ended with a luncheon at the Palm Springs Unified School District’s Operation Center, (off Gene Autry across from the airport), where I and 21 other Principals for a Day recounted our experience.

At the school parking lot, officers from the Desert Hot Springs Police Department and Cal Fire talked about their jobs and demonstrated the equipment on their fire trucks and patrol cars. It was inspiring to see so many young faces fully engaged in their conversations. Then Kalisek escorted me to an Advanced Biology class preparing students for college level work.

Social Security Main Street vs. Wall Street Benefits

By Janice Gough

PALM SPRINGS - Many people today depend on the Social Security payments to provide their needed income to live. As the cost of living increases and some people have had stock market loses, it is very important to make the best choice of when to take Social Security. The longer you can prolong taking your benefits, the greater monthly pay out you will receive. This decision may be based on one’s health or existing wealth. Americans are living longer so if you can get by on your current income then it is wise to let your benefits grow as long as possible. The biggest question on Social Security is when to take your benefits. If you worked 40 quarters during your lifetime, you are eligible to receive benefits. The Full Retirement age currently is age 66, which is called FRA. If you decide to take benefits before this time at age 62 or before age 66 a 25 percent penalty is placed on your benefit. The penalty reduces each month after age 62 by a monthly percentage of the 25 percent. If you can hold off and take benefits after age 66 you will gain an eight percent additional income for each year up to age 70. If a Cost of Living increase is approved during those years, you will also receive that. At age 70, you could receive almost 40 percent more each month. Spousal benefits are 50 percent of the Primary Beneficiary and Survivor Benefits are 100 percent of the Deceased Beneficiary. An exspouse can file on her ex-spouse if

they were married 10 years and she has not re-married. It may help to understand that before FRA the spousal benefit is not a separate benefit. It is an amount added onto a person’s own benefit if their own benefit is less than one-half the spouse’s PIA (Primary Insurance Amount). Social Security provides indispensible protection for children. While Social Security indeed plays a critical role in the economic security of retired workers, it also provides near universal support for children, covering 98 percent of all children in the event of a death or disability of a caregiver. This all sounds fairly simple; however, the rules of Social Security can be complex. Even though your Social Security office can help you with any questions, it is important to discuss this with your adviser as they will understand more about the taxation of Social Security and your income. If you wish to know how much income you would receive at different election ages, please call us today. We can help you establish a plan that works best for you and your family.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in wheelchair The stock market took a pause last week from its strong start to 2013. The biggest reason for the slowdown were some concerning comments made by the Federal Reserve Governors in the minutes released from their January meeting. Economic data last week was lukewarm at best. First time jobless claims rose by 27,000. The Philadelphia Fed’s business index dropped to its lowest level since last June and turned negative meaning a shrinking manufacturing sector. Unemployment ticked up to 7.9 percent last month. Bond values are plunging for longer term durations. For the first time since QE (Quantitative Easing) began, there were comments in the Fed minutes that said some members wanted to stop or slow down the trillion dollars worth of bond buying it has been doing for many years now. This bond buying has been artificially propping up our stock and bond markets. The Fed members who were concerned stated that they were fearful that the government would not be able to sell those assets at a profit in the future and that continued purchases could lead trigger inflationary pressures. I could not agree more. We simply can’t keep printing money for Wall Street to solve our problems. There are other forms of stimulus that could provide a

February 27, 2013

more direct impact to American families instead of Wall Street bankers and large investors. The Fed’s biggest argument for continuing the bond buying programs is that it will lead to lower unemployment. That’s just not the case.

Investment Know-How Kevin Powell The middle class (if there is still such a thing) is the backbone to the U.S. economy. For the past decade, the middle class has been under attack. Three stock market crashes since the turn of the century, a real estate implosion causing immeasurable damage, runaway unemployment and soaring personal debt have stolen assets and time from nearly all Americans that we will never recoup. It’s time for politicians at all levels to concentrate on Main Street instead of Wall Street. We need local economic

stimuli. Jobs need to be created. Homeowners who are behind on their mortgages and under water with their values need to have their housing debt reset to current values. Our country’s infrastructure is falling apart. Why not move those seeking jobs to that type of work? During the Great Depression in the 1930s FDR saved the country with a similar plan called CWA (Civil Works Administration). The New Deal from FDR occurred in a completely different America than the one we have today. But when so many have lost so much and there’s not much hope for impactful change, I think most of us would do whatever we could to right our ship. The CWA created four million jobs in two months! Adjusting to today’s population that would be roughly 10 million new jobs. The CWA was responsible for installing 12 million feet of sewer pipe, built or made substantial improvements to 255,000 miles of roads, started the U.S. Interstate system, built 40,000 schools, 3,700 playgrounds, and nearly 1,000 airports. Most of the jobs involved manual labor. But the CWA also provided considerable white-collar work, employing statisticians, bookbinders, architects, 50,000 teachers, and 3,000 writers and artists and many more. I think the country has made improvements over the past four years. But you can measure those with a thimble instead of a gallon bucket. Real estate is still suffering greatly from tight credit markets. The government can fix that tomorrow if they wanted. Employers are reluctant to create new jobs because of the unknown impact of ObamaCare and our high corporate tax rate. The U.S. has the second highest corporate tax rate in the world. That’s not business friendly and another reason why so many jobs have been shipped overseas. Even if large corporations started hiring it would not create enough jobs as small businesses generate at least 70 percent of all our jobs. The key to small businesses growth: access to capital! What’s so disappointing is that there are real solutions to our problems. But for some reason, our leaders can’t see the jobs for their political ideologies. Try this: let’s put $1 trillion into rebuilding Main Street and watch how quickly the Dow Jones smashes through the 30,000 mark.

Even the firebrand 18th century theologian, Jonathon Edwards, recognized that “The best, most beautiful, and most perfect way that we have of expressing a sweet concord of mind to each other is by music.” This sentiment is part of the foundation of the Virginia Waring International Piano Competition, which since 1978, has been a Desert host to aspiring young classical pianists from around the world in a bi-annual competition that has launched many significant concert careers. The competition began when College of the Desert pianist and music teacher, Joanna Hodges, organized an event with the goal of providing young pianists with performance opportunities. To this end, the competition, which is held in Palm Desert, rewards winners with recital and concerto dates at prestigious concert venues throughout the United States and Europe. There are three levels of participation: Juniors (age 12 and under); Intermediate (13 through 17) and Seniors (18 through 35); with each contestant participating in both solo and concerto rounds, as well as performing at Master Classes in each age category. By 2001, the competition had become moribund, but thanks to the dedication of famed local resident and internationally renowned pianist Virginia (Mrs. Fred) Waring, the competition was reorganized and renamed in her honor. As can be imagined, while housing, transportation, board and other services are provided to the contestants by a large group of local volunteers and donors, the cost of producing the event is substantial

Antarctica Marathon

For many of us, winter is a time for looking at travel brochures and dreaming of white, sandy beaches; but not for the approximately two dozen runners who are expected to reach their goal of completing marathons on all seven continents with this year’s running of the 14th Antarctica Marathon on March 7. However, don’t worry about missing the sign-up deadline, for despite its extreme nature, the Antarctica Marathon has sold out 11 of its last 14 starts, usually years in advance.

The Antarctica Marathon, where temperatures range from 15F to 34F and wind gusts that easily reach 40 mph. Then look to Hein Wagner and Winter Vinecki for inspiration. South African Wagner has been totally blind from birth; he will run the Marathon with a guide to promote the integration of disabled persons into all aspects of normal life. Fourteen-year old American athlete Vinecki is a nationally ranked tri-athlete, Olympic skiing hopeful and the youngest person ever to tackle the Antarctica Marathon. She expects to be the youngest person to finish marathons on all seven continents – by the time she turns 15.

Beaches Awards Getting away Sherman Fridman

According to Boston-based Marathon Tours & Travel - the event’s organizer - the marathon, which is held annually on King George Island located off the Antarctic Peninsula, is presently sold out through 2016, so there is have plenty of time to get in shape. Held at the tail end of the Antarctic summertime, race-day temperatures range from 15F to 34F, with wind gusts that easily reach 40 mph. Heavy snow this time of year is rare, but light flurries are common. If the Marathon, itself, does not satisfy your taste for adventure, getting there will. Runners will travel an average of 6,500 miles each to attend the event; first going to Buenos Aires, Argentina, before departing to Ushuaia, Argentina, the southernmost city in the world. There they will board the Akademik Loffe, a Russian icebreaker for a two-day crossing of Drake Passage, a body of water notorious for being one of the roughest in the world. Think you can’t do it?

If you believe that snow is best seen in a Courier and Ives painting, then the 2013 Travelers’ Choice Beaches Awards presented by TripAdvisor will be of interest. Based on the quality and quantity of traveler reviews and ratings over the past year, the No. 1 beach in the U.S. is Ka’anapali Beach, Lahaina, Hawaii. Hawaii has four of the top ten U.S. beaches, while California can claim two, with La Jolla Cove, La Jolla, California, the highest ranked at No. 8.

Desert Hot Springs High School will be taking a learning trip to Washington D.C. in May. Seven students and their adviser are looking for a sponsor and conducting fundraising events. The cost is $1,800 per student for a week in Washington D.C.

the experience of hands-on learning about the law-making process of Congress, mock congressional hearings with their peers from across the country, and face-to-fact meetings with Congressmen and their staff. The students have organized various fund raising events, including a Walk for Washington this Saturday, Feb. 23, 9 a.m. to noon at DHS HS. They also are taking pledges for a Basketball Free Throw event and a Read-a-Thon. Donations of $500 and more will receive name and

business recognition in the media. The students hope that the name recognition of donors on-air and on the Internet will inspire support of this worthy cause. “All the help given to these students is an investment in our community here in the Coachella Valley. The students will enrich their high school experience in the process and return as more informed and involved citizens.” To help support their cause, email mkegel@psusd.us or call, 760-2887000.

MusicSTAR Music Heroes Return Monumental Efforts Music Worth Buying by Robert Kinsler

Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, Thom Yorke’s Atoms For Peace, the Jeff Healey Band and Moody Blues singer-songwriter Justin Hayward make powerful impressions on their latest releases.

Artist: Johnny Marr

Title: The Messenger (Sire/ADA) You might be interested if you like: The Smiths, Blur, New Order. Tell me more: More than 25 years after the Smiths disbanded, that legendary British quartet’s phenomenal guitarist Johnny Marr has finally issued his first-ever solo album. Indeed, “The Messenger” is so wonderful it’s easy to wonder why Marr didn’t turn down participation in post-Smiths projects such as The The, Electronic, the Cribs and Modest Mouse in order to focus on completing a solo project much sooner. Some songs on the 12-track release sound as if they were unleashed back in the 1980s; the driving “I Want the Heartbeat” and New Order-flavored “European Me” immediately come to mind. However, other songs (“Upstarts,” “Lockdown,” “New Town Velocity”) capture the seeds of that decade blended into a rich musical landscape that fits comfortably alongside ‘00s music champions Snow Patrol, Coldplay and Neon Trees. While there are few discerning listeners who will be surprised by Marr’s alwaysartful and stellar guitar work, the Manchester native’s fine vocals serve as a revelation. The icing on the cake for area fans is that Marr is scheduled to perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio on April 12 and 19. Information: www.johnnymarr.com and www.Coachella.com.

challenging disc. At first listen, songs such as “Before Your Very Eyes...” and “Dropped” sound chained to a relentless electronic rhythm and eerie noises. But singer Thom Yorke’s otherworldly tenor always keeps the futuristic sounds grounded in the here and now. “Default” blends his voice with a late ‘70s-sounding synthesizer, while “Unless” relies on a tight beat and sound effects to paint the soundscape that surrounds Yorke’s vocals. As is clear with repeated listens, there is more to “Amok” than it seems; tune into “Stuck Together Pieces” closely and you’ll hear plenty of gorgeous guitar and Flea’s rousing bass guitar playing amidst the amalgam of electronic textures. On the title track “Amok” the gradual buildup of altered and distant layered voices attempts to emerge from beneath the beat in an ever-evolving and beautiful dance. Information: http://amok. atomsforpeace.info.

Tell me more: Although March 2, 2013 will mark the 5th anniversary of his death, Jeff Healey continues to gain new fans thanks to an ongoing effort by Eagle Rock Entertainment to release material pulled from the vault of the late Canadian guitarist. “House On Fire” is a collection of studio rarities and demo recordings completed between 1992 and 1998. From the original blues-styled title track and rollicking “Who’s Been Sleeping In My Bed” to the breathtaking instrumental gem “Bish Bang Boof,” there is plenty to celebrate on the release. The heartfelt ballad “You Go Your Way, I’ll Go Mine” and a cover of Bob Seger’s “We’ve Got Tonight” showcase Healey’s tender side. Speaking of covers, Healey’s reworking of Bruce Springsteen’s “Adam Raised a Cain” is terrific and every bit as ferocious as the original; this version features inspired guitar playing and powerful Artist: Atoms for Peace vocals that defined Healey. As sad as Title: Amok (XL Recordings) it is that the world lost Healey much You might be interested if you Artist: The Jeff Healey Band too soon (he was only 41 when he lost like: Radiohead’s “King of Limbs,” Title: House On Fire (Eagle Rock his battle with cancer), albums such Caribou’s “Swim,” Thom Yorke’s 2006 Entertainment) as “House On Fire” assure his passion solo album “The Eraser.” You might be interested if you for making great music will long be Tell me more: Atoms for Peace’s like: Joe Bonamassa, Eric Clapton, remembered.

recordings like “Crazy,” “Hello Walls,” “Red Headed Stranger” and “Stardust.” His career has spanned six decades. His catalog boasts more than 200 albums and on Friday, Mar. 1 Nelson will take

the stage once again, at Fantasy Springs. Nelson has earned every conceivable award and honor to be bestowed a person in his profession. He has also amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor and activist. In many ways, however, the weighty distinction “living legend” does Nelson a disservice, for it discounts the extent to which he is a thriving, relevant and progressive musical and cultural force. In the past five years alone he delivered 10 new releases, two of which received Grammy nominations, and a career-spanning box set, released his debut novel and again headlined Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985, all the while

Stevie Nicks Rocks on March 2

INDIO – The legendary Stevie Nicks has an instantly recognizable voice that rises above all others, stops you in your tracks, has inspired and influenced artists for generations. On Saturday, Mar. 2, Nicks will fill the Fantasy Springs Special Events Center with that haunting, romantic and completely unforgettable sound. Added to the voice, are extraordinary songwriting talents which have brought joy to her millions of fans for generations. Collectively they add up to one of the most successful female artists in rock history. From the start of her career as a solo artist with the release of her five million seller “Bella Donna” up to her current critically acclaimed “In Your Dreams,” Nicks has never failed to deliver unforgettable performances on record and on the stage. “In Your Dreams” is Nicks’ first album of new material in a decade. She has just completed a two year tour coinciding with its

release. “In Your Dreams” was released on Reprise Records in 2011, and was co-written and coproduced by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard. Nicks also produced and co-directed a documentary film of the recording of “In Your Dreams” which has received rave reviews at the Hamptons International Film Festival along with several other film festivals. As a member of the legendary Fleetwood Mac whose “Rumours” CD was one of the biggest selling albums of all time, Nicks’ four decade career includes multiple Grammy awards, numerous gold and platinum records, induction into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and unforgettable performances across the stages of the world for decades. Nicks who has penned Fleetwood Mac classics including the timeless “Landslide,” “Dreams,” ”Gold Dust Woman” and “Rhiannon” has had equal success as a solo artist beginning with her five times platinum debut “Bella Donna.” With unforgettable songs such as “Edge of Seventeen” and “Stand Back,” Stevie Nicks is unique among the pantheon of rock icons. Tickets for the 8 p.m. Nicks performance are on sale for $109, $99, $89, $69 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www. FantasySpringsResort.com.

continuing to lobby against horse slaughter and produce his own blend of biodiesel fuel. As ever, Nelson tours tirelessly, climbing aboard Honeysuckle Rose III (he rode his first two buses into the ground), taking his music and fans on a seemingly endless journey to places that were well worth the ride. Just this year, Nelson entered into a historic new record deal with Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment. The deal marks a label homecoming for Nelson, who, from 1975-1993, cut a phenomenal string of top-selling singles and album for Columbia Records, beginning with 1975’s

seminal smash “Red Headed Stranger.” To kick off the new agreement, fans can look forward to five brand-new albums, the first, Heroes, was released May 2012. The albums will showcase new songs and deep country classics with guest artists including Merle Haggard, Snoop Dogg, Kris Kristofferson, Billy Joe Shaver, Sheryl Crow, Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson and Micah Nelson. Just this month, Nelson released his book, Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I die. Tickets for the 8 p.m. performance are on sale for $99, $79, $69, $39 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, (800) 827-2946 or online FantasySpringsResort. com.

West Side Story soars as the greatest love story of all time and remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as “Something’s Coming,” “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty,” and “Somewhere.” TheAssociated Press says West Side Story “remains Broadway’s best dance-driven musical.

Fashion’s New Mood

Uncomplicated Ease. American design comes to the fore front influencing fashions changing mood. Clean lines combined with comfort are the clothes we want to live in this summer. The fashion landscape has started to shift quietly into soft feminine clothes. The new mood is about neutral colors ivory, beige, midnight, black with a dash of color: classic red or claret. Gone are the mile high stilt shoes of discomfort. A simple stiletto has entered the picture in soft leather. The new woman is classic and understated. She is not a neon sign walking down the street. Workday summer separates have a sense of modern glamour that reflects on the days of the great American sportswear. Designer Francisco Costa’s line for Calvin Klein was influenced by the late Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. The interior of the clothes are structured while the exteriors are deconstructed. Fashion is reflecting the times and the current economy. Women want pieces they are going to wear from day to night and on more than one occasion. They want clothes to have a sophisticated whisper of sexiness, regardless of the trend of the moment. Open your closet to a new piece, a new shape, a soft neutral color. Add white shirts, shift dresses and a trench coat to go

At the MoviesSTAR Nine 2012 films were nominated in the Best Picture category, but only five directors made the cut. While “Argo” was nominated, director Ben Affleck was not. However, this nominating slight didn’t stop “Argo” from winning Best Picture after all, proving that the thrilling true life adventure was the little movie that could--and did. Overcoming against all odds is also the underlying theme of this true life adventure film. In 1979 American hostages were taken prisoner in Iran and held in captivity for 444 days. The story of “Argo” deals with an additional small group of Americans who managed to escape from the Embassy and find sanctuary in the Canadian Embassy. But it is just a matter

Silver

Screen

Theda Kleinhans Reichman of time before they will be discovered and if and when that happens they will be imprisoned like all the other Americans or worse yet, killed. CIA agent Tony Mendez, played in the film by Affleck, devises a plan to get the Americans out. At first the CIA finds his idea unworkable, but eventually they decide that his plan is so bizarre it might actually work. And as crazy as it seemed, it was better than any of the government devised escape scenarios. Mendez scheme was to go into Iran under the pretense of making a Hollywood film there.

Oscar Winner ‘Argo’

Affleck would pose as the director and the American would be his film crew with fake names, identities and fake passports.. Affleck‘s “Argo” is a nail biter, and even though you know how it will eventually end you find yourself riveted on the edge of your seat as Affleck, the folks back in Hollywood serving as the producers (Alan Arkin and John Goodman) create a bogus film project with a script entitled “Argo” and plenty of coverage in the Hollywood trade papers. When this background preparation is achieved, the really hard part of their plot begins. Will the Americans be able to assume false identities and play their roles as film folk without panicking while out scouting locations surrounded by Iranians? Arkin and Goodman’s characters poke lots of fun at Hollywood film making throughout which adds humor to relieve the anxiety of the plot. Arkin, knowing it is a bogus movie, is still determined to make the concept a great one since his name and reputation are attached to this sci-fi film to be set in Iran if all goes according to plan. Arkin, who was nominated for his role, brings plenty of humor to this adventure. The combo pack, Blu-ray + DVD + Ultraviolet is packed with additional features like the “Eyewitness Account” where the chaos of revolutionary Iran comes to life with survivor’s stories. And in “Rescued From Tehran: We Were There,” President Jimmy Carter, Tony Mendez and the actual

houseguests of the Canadians recount the real-life harrowing experiences they endured. Another feature takes a look at the

risks the Canadians took in order to shelter their closes neighbors. There is also feature-length commentary and much more.

From Warner Bros, rated R for language and some violent images. Another nice touch, Ben Affleck dedicates the film to his wife Jennifer and to their children. Affleck is a winner in more ways than one. Other Oscar winners now on DVD include “Brave” from Disney.Pixar which took home the Oscar for Best Animated Film and “Searching for Sugar Man,” Best Documentary Feature, which tells the celebrated true story of musician Rodriguez who is considered the greatest ’70s rock icon who never was. From Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, rated PG-13.

Grant Heslov, Ben Affleck and George Clooney accept the award for Best Picture

It’s no secret that New Orleans knows how to pass a good time, so when tire manufacturer BFGoodrich invited me to “pass-by” the Big Easy for a hands-on test of their latest addition, the g-Force Rival Extreme Performance Summer tire, who could say no? Turns out Charlotte, NC-based BFG is just as savvy as the Crescent City when it comes to southern hospitality. The morning after a welcome party and sumptuous repast at Arnaud’s in the French Quarter, a fleet of intrepid media hacks departed the New Orleans Ritz Carlton for a shuttle trip to NOLA Motorsport Park, located in Avondale, just 20 minutes away. Our mission - to run a comparison test that included a little “fais do do” with a mix of courses, vehicles and tires. A hybrid of sorts, the g-Force Rival targets a growing market of drivers seeking extreme performance tires that are versatile enough to be used in autocross and track-day events, while still suitable for street use. Meaning weekend enthusiasts can drive to the track, race and head home with their trophy, all on the same rubber. In any type of racing, tires play an integral role in performance and offer a significant impact on lap times. While many enthusiasts consider braking, power upgrades or suspension to be the more crucial “add-ons” when it comes to enhancing a car’s overall performance, the “shoes” worn must factor into the competitive equation. However, in this segment of the market, a new tire has to transcend “good enough” and outshine competitors. The g-Force Rival was developed as a “two-fer”, with the ability to turn heads on the street and lower lap times at the track with its extreme grip. As we pulled into NOLA, it was time to put the Rivals to the test. Our spec cars awaited on several courses, some sporting Rivals and others equipped with counterparts

from competitive manufacturers. A long course autocross featured BMWE46 M3’s equipped with Hankooks and Rivals for comparison. Even with my own limited track experience, the Rivals felt tighter on the turns with a quicker response time. Waiting at the next station of autocross were Subaru WRX STI’s sporting Rivals, HankookVentus R-S3 and Toyo Proxes R1R’s. Again, the difference in handling was striking, with the Rival producing crisp turns that held to the line. Queuing up all three contenders for a tread wear comparison, the Rival distinctly showed more tread and less wear than the competition. While this attribute may not seem essential to a racer, for a consumer it is a crucial consideration in a tire purchase. Next up, a few “hot” laps on the full NOLA circuit piloting Mustang FR500’s. For this stint, Falken RT-614K’s stepped up to the plate to challenge the Rival. Being a “newbie” to this type of track time, I certainly didn’t even approach competitive speeds but the handling contrast between the two tires was easily discernable and the Rival took pole position after round three. So cheers to BFGoodrich for the hospitality and for providing a mix of cars, tires and driving conditions for a handling benchmark. The Rivals take the podium and throw in a little something extra by giving weekend enthusiasts the ability drive to and from the track while leaving the lug wrench in the toolbox. In N’Awlin’s lingo, that’s beaucoup lagniappe.

50 countries. California male life expectancy is 77.8 years while female expectancy in California is 82.8 years. The average life expectancy in the United States is 75.9 years. The report says that far more of the world’s humans are now living into old age. However, there are an increased number of deaths in third world countries from cancer and heart disease, diseases mostly associated with rich countries. The shift reflects improvements in sanitation, medical services and access to food throughout the developing world as well as the success of vaccine programs. Infant mortality declined by more than half from 1990 to 2010 while malnutrition, the number one risk factor for years of life lost in 1990, has fallen to eighth place. At the same time, chronic diseases like cancer now account for about two out of every three deaths worldwide, up from just over half in 1990. Eight million people died of cancer in 2010, 38 percent more than in 1990. Diabetes claimed 1.3 million lives in 2010, double the number in 1990. In 2010, 43 percent of deaths in the world occurred at age 70 and older, compared with 33 percent of deaths in 1990, the report said. And fewer child deaths have brought up the mean age of death, which in Brazil and Paraguay jumped to 63 in 2010, up from 30 in 1970, the report said. The measure, an average of all deaths in a given year, is different from life expectancy and is lower when large numbers of children die. But while developing countries made big strides, the United States stagnated. American women registered the smallest gains in life expectancy of all high-income countries’ female populations between 1990 and 2010. American women gained just under two years of life, compared with women in Cyprus, who lived 2.3 years longer and Canadian women who gained 2.4 years. The slow increase caused American women to fall to 36th place in the report’s global ranking of life expectancy, down from 22nd in 1990. “It’s alarming just how little progress there has been for women in the United States,” said Christopher Murray, director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, a health research organization financed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation at

the University of Washington that coordinated the report. Rising rates of obesity among American women and the legacy of smoking are among the factors contributing to the stagnation, he said. In Sub-Saharan Africa, infectious diseases, childhood illnesses and maternity-related causes of death still account for about 70 percent of the region’s disease burden. In contrast, they account for just one-third in South

Asia, and less than a fifth in all other regions. Globally, AIDS was an exception to the shift of deaths from infectious to non-communicable diseases. The epidemic is believed to have peaked but still results in 1.5 million deaths each year. The report also raises troubling questions. While it is known that behavior affects people’s risks of developing cancer, heart disease and diabetes, public health experts say it is far harder to get people to change their ways than to administer a vaccine that protects children from an infectious disease like measles. Tobacco use is a rising threat in developing countries. It is responsible for almost six million deaths a year globally. Illnesses like diabetes are also spreading fast.

The Beginning The train slowly rumbled to a stop, and I stepped down into the desert sand. It was still dark, with a faint glow over the far horizon to indicate where the sun later would appear. On the wide expanse of desert there were no lights, houses, or trees to be seen. Standing in nearby brush was a single coyote, and we regarded each other curiously. The conductor later told me that the two mountains which thrust their peaks into the starstudded sky were San Jacinto and San Gorgonio. No other passengers were up at this very early hour, and the coaches just formed a dark mass merging into a row of palm trees growing on the south side of the track. Up ahead lanterns flashed about the engine and a water tank, as the trainmen busied themselves taking on water. This was the year of 1893, and I was just a small boy accompanying my parents on a

three-months’ sight-seeing trip to California. We left St. Paul, Minnesota, in a snowstorm and went by train south to New Orleans. Then leisurely down into Old Mexico with various stops and short side trips to Mexico City, where we were for two days guests of Porfirio Diaz, then president of Mexico. Diaz was a dictator, but also fair with his people. From there north by a different route into Texas; then Los Angeles and vicinity, San Francisco, and other places, crossing the Rockies to Salt Lake City, and so on with a few detours back St. Paul. President Diaz, his castle of Chapultepec, the floating gardens, the ancient pyramids, the train held up by two dozen bandits, a major earthquake, and other happenings are a story for another time. Little did I realize that this desert which I thus first saw in 1893 would be my future home. But the wheels of fortune grind steadily on, change all our plans, and very often reduce us to points of beginning, sometimes putting us in the cellar below the floor of life, where fair starts are made.

PALM SPRINGS - Decatur, Alabama resident Dena Dodd and Sam, a male Standard Poodle will be one of three students and their specially-trained guide dogs who will graduate from the Guide Dogs of the Desert training program on Sunday, February 10 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Whitewater, CA campus of Guide Dogs of the Desert. Dena’s dog Sam was initially raised by the Zappia family of Palm Desert, CA. Puppy raisers like the Zappia’s receive their puppy at approximately 10 -12 weeks of age, and keep them until they are between 18 to 20 months of age. This is the third puppy that the Zappia Family has raised for Guide Dogs of the Desert. Puppy-raisers housebreak the puppy, provide basic obedience training, and familiarize it with people, animals, traffic, noises, and strange surroundings. Guide Dogs of the Desert breeds the puppies

In a nod to modern-day travel realities, client/dog pairs also learn how to go through security at an airport, thanks to cooperation from the Palm Springs International Airport and local Transportation Security Administration staff. The school’s very low 3:1 client/instructor ratio allows students to have a high level of one-on-one training. For the blind, a guide dog means increased freedom, companionship and safety.

Haber announced the introduction of an Outreach Program that will help families care for their disabled children in their own homes. During the program, Lee Ames, Elaine Church and Jeff Jones read some family’s letters sent to Angel View Outreach. These letters were heartbreaking and told how Angel View has helped them.

“Hello Dolly” at McCormick’s Auction

Photo and story by Bill Marchese PALM SPRINGS – Legendary Actress and Singer Carol Channing smiles and waves goodbye to her fans and her 1970 Buick convertible as she leaves McCormick’s Palm Spring Collector Car Auction last Saturday. The one-owner car sold for $18,000, which she and her fourth husband, Harry Kullijian, bought new in 1970. At age 92, Channing no longer drives a car, but is said to be hanging on to

a Cadillac and a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud. A part-time resident of the Coachella Valley, Channing is best known as an award-winning comedienne, actress and singer. One of her most famous stage roles on Carol Channing Broadway was the bombshell Lorelei Lee in, “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” She performed the lead role in, “Hello Dolly,” more than 5,000 times, missing only one performance due to food poisoning. Her performance as Dolly won a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical, in a year where her chief competition was Barbra Streisand for “Funny Girl.” Channing is the recipient of three Tony Awards, including one for lifetime achievement, a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination.

Pisces - Ending Forever the Darkness of Matter

We are in Pisces now, the last sign of the zodiac – “Light of the World, revealing Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” Pisces contains all previous eleven signs. Pisces is the two fish, connected by a silvery cord. One fish is the personality, the other the Soul. They represent the duality all of humanity experiences. Being both animal and divine, we experience simultaneously feelings of attraction and separation, passion and despair, suffering and bliss. Pisces lives through three different levels of reality – bondage & captivity, renunciation and finally, saving other, liberation. The fishes flow upstream, downstream, in all streams and waterways. Eventually they orient themselves to one specific current, a sense of direction, an emerging potential becoming practical. Pisces brings great understand and compassion to the world. And at times seems to have an unlimited supply resources for the world. Pisces calls upon Virgo for order and organization, Capricorn for structures, Aries for direction. Taurus for stability, Gemini for love and understanding. Pisces calls all the signs. And then absorbs them, harboring seeds for Spring. The fish withdraws, standing always within the world of art, dance and theatre, with the higher spiritual values religion offers. Pisces is both sacred and profane (of spirit & of the world, too), interweaving the real with the ideal, emitting tints and hues of subtle silvery color. Eventually Pisces becomes the World Savior. “The waters drowned the fish. It appeared and disappeared. It eventually brought salvation.” ARIES: A great intuition may befall you, along with great inner strength and faith, surprising you who mostly relies on outer courage and risk taking. You are different for a little while. A gift given of sensitivity. Compassion (you rarely express) will fall from your lips. Then a different sort of discontent creating a state of vulnerability. There is no fear. Only faith. TAURUS: Overseen by Venus, Earth’s elder sister, you are very accepting, adaptable, flexible, humanitarian and idealistic. You focus on the future. When called to be in the present you feel a deep challenge. At times it’s difficult to know what your hopes and wishes are. Simple goals are not enough. You want more, the best, the most. Artists are attracted to you. Listening better helps you can communicate better. GEMINI: You see current trends and they fuel your vision creativity and vision, both mostly underground Your creativity is in the helping others who are challenged, who are drifting

without a direction, seeking their purpose and calling in life. Actually you’re in these places many times so you bring understanding those in these states. Childhood may have given you chaotic messages. It’s time for you to leave them now. CANCER: You’re assuming practical responsibilities and tending to things fallen to the wayside long ago. You felt you could never retrieve a sense of order and balance. But look at your life now. Day by day, you’re achieving that order and balance, harmony and beauty. You sense and

accomplish the goals to be reached. At the end of the day, at your nightly review, you see your day was good. You see you can do anything and everything. You have discipline. LEO: You feel a spiritual longing. You thought you had tended to this long ago through various philosophic studies, living like a hermit, caring for the kingdoms of nature, using technology, and attempting to forget everyone in your past. All of this has left you wanting. Are you sharing resources with another? Are your financial records intact? You are creative and imaginative. You accept others into your life. However you miss someone far away. VIRGO: Often you give more than most, and demand more than most. Wearing rose tinted glasses, sometimes your perceptions are more than accurate. Sometimes not. When you love someone you see their potential. This is good but unrealistic and you become disappointed. Call forth discrimination and discernment each morning upon awakening. You will become a more realistic communicator and partner. You will see reality and accept it. LIBRA: It’s important to see the details in managing day-to-day affairs, to create efficient routines, allotting different days for different tasks. These lessen confusion. It’s important to have boundaries, especially at work. Creating agendas helps you manage each day and week with order and organization. You must also tend to your health with this same amount of care. Have compassion for yourself. And for one other. SCORPIO: A sense of drama

sometimes overtakes you. Especially when the artist within begins to express itself. Which brings me to the idea of acting. Often you’re the actor on life’s stage, standing behind curtains of protection, eyes downcast, hiding all you know. Often, you only see things the way you want to see them and hear only what you want to hear. You attract those who need care and secretive. They reflect you perfectly. SAGITTARIUS: Viewing your childhood you may consider it was complex for you, a sensitive, preoccupied child. Perhaps now you’ve begun to long for a home, family, mothering and nurturing. So you attempt to create an extended family to love and nurture but really to be loved and nurtured by. It’s vital to step into quiet and solitude to revivify your spirit. Recognize family as the source of your present success. Then you see family clearly. CAPRICORN: The planet Pluto is bringing about a transformation in your life. You’re aware of this. It’s bringing you out of a previous way of being and introducing you into a newer self-identity. Be aware that you may feel restrained and this will create feelings of frustration. Allow others to care for you, giving them opportunities to use their gifts and to serve. You never lack discipline. Do not press forward too soon or too fast your healing. Visualize your healing. AQUARIUS: Making money through artistic pursuits suits you well, as you cannot be boxed into regular ways of working and living. Financial advice is always useful, especially for those not focused materialistically. Your ways of working are based on instincts, hunches, impressions. You wish for wealth. You actually are wealthy, but in different ways. When you realize this all needs are met. You are to be generous in order to have and then give more. PISCES: Many consider you gentle, sensitive and sometimes too dreamy for “real” life. Yes, you’re sensitive, you do dream and you can be gentle when seeing others in need. Underneath the subtle allure of gentleness and peace that passes understanding is a strong, Plutonic character with a sensible approach to the world. Only a few see this. Only a few understand the power of your imagination and the ability you have to heal. Only a few.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-7302727 or visit this www.lpsasap.com Internet Web site address for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case file number. 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.
