It’s Time To…

...uncover those buried dreams and commit to holding on to them, working to make them come true.  Ron Heagy is one such person who had to alter his dreams because he was injured and permanently paralyzed. Today his dreams are different than when he was a teenager. Due to a terrible accident he is a quadriplegic with his days confined to a wheelchair. But today he travels the world sharing his story and inspiring others to keep dreaming and “keep smiling”.  And the influence he has had on men, women and children who are also physically disabled is incredible. Using only his teeth to hold a brush Ron has painted some of the most awe inspiring paintings I have ever seen. And today, contrary to doctor’s prognosis, Ron is a proud father. Ron’s motto is “Never Give Up”! Many times in life plans change beyond our control but dreams still do come true. You need to see beyond your past. “Your body doesn’t live in the past so why should your mind”. Many people live their lives in the past by looking at their past failures and their current circumstances and assume this is how it’s going to be for the rest of their life. They develop an attitude of “So why waste time dreaming?”  If you have made mistakes in the past (if your human, and don’t live on a deserted island, you have). Everyone has made mistakes whether it be in relationships or in business or with an investment opportunity, you tend to feel you’ve started a pattern and you lose faith in yourself as well as everyone else and have a hard time trusting or believing anyone new in your life.  Using your experiences from the past as a weapon to take control of your future is referred to as wisdom. Wisdom is what you gain from your past, good or bad. The only way to move forward and out of a rut of repetition is to exercise that wisdom. Do your homework and don’t let your emotions get in the way of making a proactive decision.  Life is too short to be hung up on past failures. So if you are, it means you are keeping your eyes on your rearview mirror which only lets you see your past, what you should be watching are your side view mirrors to see what’s coming upon you. These are the opportunities you can do something about. Remember, you can’t change the past. Rekindle your dream. Remind yourself of why you had the dream in the first place then restructure your goals and move forward.

To Mosque or not to Mosque, that is not the question….

….the never-ending “Mosque at Ground-Zero” story continues with opponents on both sides hurling barbs at one another with accusations of religious intolerance and denying constitutional rights.  The thing about this story that truly amazes me is that it’s the Liberals making these claims.  These are the same people that think of the Constitution as a “living, breathing document” made to be ignored when it doesn’t fit the beliefs of a small minority of “victims” or runaway, activist judges who make rulings in spite of the Constitution.  Why is it that they’re so concerned all of a sudden with defending the constitutional rights of the Imam who wants to build the Mosque?  And when it comes to religious intolerance, Liberals have written the book on it.  This is the same group that wants to remove even the mere mention of God from Schools, Courthouses and in some cases our money.  Christians are looked down on with disdain by the liberal elites in this country as radicals and/or fringe-groups yet with Muslims; they want to preach religious tolerance to the rest of us.  And I also wonder why they haven’t thrown their support behind the Greek Orthodox Church that was leveled during the 9/11 attacks yet was denied the permits to rebuild at the same location? I know there are 2 Mosques within 12 blocks of Ground Zero already and yes they are within their rights to build another there whether or not it’s a poor choice of locations and insensitive to the families that lost loved-ones there.  I think the real story in all of this is how the “left” in this country is all of a sudden concerned with constitutional and religious rights of the Imam who wants to build there…..”The liberals doth protest too much, methinks.”

Skirting the Topic of Your Legs?

Skirts can be one of the most flattering pieces of clothing, but only if you choose the skirts that are right for your body. Here’s what to look for: Petites…Look for straight skirts, like pencil skirts, or something slightly flared, like an A-line skirt. The length is tricky: your skirt should be just above the knee if you’re slender, and it should just cover the kneecap if you’re larger on top. Vertical details, like stripes or seams, can add to your height. Skirts with an offcenter slit will make your legs look longer. A full-length skirt can create height. Avoid skirts with excessive details. Curvy…Skirts with a slight flare that just cover the knee will be the best choice. Choose skirts with flat fronts and back closures. If your curves make you a little bottom-heavy, choose skirts that end at the narrowest part of your knee. If your curves make you a little heavier in the middle, skirts without a waistband or with a dropped-waist will de-emphasize the area. Avoid skirts with pleats that start at the waist; the pleats may pull open in an unflattering way. Boyish…Pencil skirts can give you the illusion of curves. The fullness of a tiered skirt, pleated skirt or a circle skirt will *********** Karri Grant, a Stylist who add curves to your body in a pretty way.

Folsom LIVE “Rocks” The signature high-energy street music party is returning to Historic Folsom Saturday, Sept. 25. This year the event is pumping up the fun and expanding to five outdoor stages and even more indoor music. Event patrons are asked to pardon the dust on Sutter Street as when it’s over the result will be a new and revitalized historic district. The Folsom Chamber of Commerce, organizer of Folsom LIVE, is working closely with city of Folsom partners to ensure a safe evening of entertainment. On Friday, Sept. 24, bring your family or friends to the American Idols Block Party, featuring four former American Idol finalists performing the best of Motown. This special performance opens the Turntable Main Stage early for a family-friendly evening. Think you have what it takes to sing with idols? Find tryout dates and locations on www.folsomlive.com. In a little more than two months from now, the historic area will be transformed into a comfortable and fun experience with more than 100 new trees, accessible walkways, benches and shade areas to compliment the unique shopping and dining experience already offered by Sutter Street merchants. The uneven sidewalks will be replaced with pedestrian friendly walkways and new building facades and canopies will polish the historic image of the city’s “heart,” and will also bring a more cohesive shopping and exploring experience. There will be historic markers, directional signs and more to help visitors enjoy historic Folsom. So, as music lovers at Folsom LIVE wander from one stage to another enjoying the sounds of everything from the traditional blues tunes of Elvin Bishop to Pink Froyd (Pink Floyd tribute band), they can see the progress being made to the historic area and plan to return to see the “revitalized” end result. You can contact Folsom Chamber of Commerce, (916) 985-2698.

Hot Flash

By Cindy Sample

Formerly (Hot or Not) A new book hot off the press discusses the woes of a forty year old mother who has just discovered that she is “formerly hot.” I would love to sympathize with the author however the only time I’ve ever considered myself “hot” was when a hot flash terrorized my body for a few brief minutes. I’ve never even contemplated whether I’m considered hot or not. When I was young I wanted to be cool, but my pointed pale blue glasses and orthopedic saddle shoes designed to correct my young bunions proclaimed me as a total dork. So I’m not even formerly “cool.” Although my bunions are no longer housed in *********** two tone leather but instead are allowed Cindy Sample to roam free in straw mules, they are Author of Dying for a Date (available now about as large as a third world July, 2010)email her at country so it appears that I am still the cindy@cindysamplebooks.com Duchess of Dork. *********** This leads me to a burning question. If I’m not formerly cool or formerly hot, what am I? Lukewarm? My friends might choose to describe me as warm and fuzzy. That’s not such a bad description. My personality is somewhat similar to that of a Golden Retriever. Just like that overgrown and overfriendly dog, I basically like almost everyone and I assume they like me. I’m kind to dogs, cats and most small children. I’m friends with ex-husbands, ex-boyfriends and ex-bosses. As I approach one of those monumental birthdays we experience every ten years I am overwhelmed with gratitude at the wonderful friendships that have entered my life and the support I’ve received as I embark on a new career as an author. And in case you’re dying to know, let me share that I am perfectly fine at being formerly fifty nine. Please join me at the Casa Garden Restaurant 9/16 or 9/17 for a luncheon benefiting the Sacramento Children’s Home. Contact 452-2809 for reservations.

Locals Making A Difference

In the spring of 2010, 15 Sacramento residents worked together to collectively raise over $201,000.00 for the Sacramento Area Chapter of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, during the annual Man, Women, and Teen of the Year campaign Chloe Garcia and Natasia Lutes together raised almost $19,000.00 in just 8 weeks.  For their efforts they were crowned 2010 “Teens of the Year” Both students Juniors of Saint Francis High School are featured in the September issue of Sacramento Magazine as well as RT advertisements throughout the Sacramento area. The Man, Women, and Teen of the Year campaign is a fundraising competition among community individuals who, through their participation, compete for the honor of being the Man, Women or Teen of the Year. Candidates are judged solely on a philanthropic basis. The individuals who raise the most funds during the 8 week campaign are awarded the title. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education, and helps to ease the financial burden for families whose loved ones are in treatment. Chloe and Natasia were one of 4 teen groups running; they have both been members of the junior board of directors of LLS for two years. They worked very hard on this campaign by sending out over 200 letters to friends and family members, having two fundraising party’s (one being Chloe’s Sweet Sixteen) and a weekend long garage sale. We are not only proud of them, but admire their tenacity, dedication and devotion to this worthy cause.

Home Based Entrepreneurs

What do I Need to Succeed in Business?

Teen of the year. Chloe Garcia and Natasia Lutes

Q. What do I need to know to be successful in my business? R. Home based entrepreneurs need to know what business they are in. You are in the business that generates the most reliable stream of income. For example, an artist who paints and displays his work for sale at a local coffee house and also teaches art classes told me that painting is his business. However, when we looked at where he earns his revenue, teaching art class was clearly his strength; his real business is teaching. His fantasy is to be in the business of painting and selling art but he does not enjoy taking his paintings out, selling them, or doing any of the work that is associated with marketing his product. So this entrepreneur has a choice, he can accept that he is in the teaching business and spend his resources building strength there or he can seek help in marketing his paintings and try to build strength there. Knowing your business is high on the list of sound management practices that you need to succeed. Other strengths you need are the ability to plan, the right technical expertise, and financial resources. No one person will have all of the skills and resources needed to be successful in business. So take advantage of mentors, government resources, and business organizations that are available to help and guide you. Do you have a question you would like answered here? Just e-mail it to: HBE@BowenAssoc.net. This column is for you and we answer all inquiries.

Debt Resolution Firms

Firms advertising that they have some secret, magic way to reduce your debt are lying to you. Not unlike the income tax dispute firms that imply the same thing as regards the IRS.  There is no magic, nor is there a secret.  Such firms tend to over promise, over charge and under perform, in my experience.  Best thing to do if you find yourself in such jams is to consult a qualified attorney for advice.  At least pay for one meeting to get “the legal perspective.”.  Also look online for unbiased reviews from former clients of the firm making the promises and ask for the name of former clients who are willing to be contacted, but don’t rely on that alone.  Children believe in magic. Adults have to live in the real world.

How to Launch a New Software Product

In the year since launching Chrometa 2.0, our personal time management software application, here are three important lessons we learned about launching a new software product. Focus on one, and only one, initial market. It’s very easy and tempting to spread yourself too thin. If you’re trying to tackle a few initial markets in parallel, you’ll become frustrated if you don’t move the needle in any of them. It’s hard enough to move the needle in one market with a new product. Don’t become discouraged if things don’t ramp as fast as you had hoped. Especially if you are bootstrapping your efforts (as we did). Of course you want to ramp up adoption and sales in the classic hockey stick fashion – but it rarely happens this way in practice. As long as your customers are paying for your product – and they are happy with it after their purchase – you are doing fine. That means the fundamentals of your situation are good. Don’t overestimate the buzz or traction any one channel will generate for you. We’ve been covered by major mainstream and industry sources – and you’d be surprised what actually has and has not moved the needle for us. One example I always use is our very first piece of media coverage, by none other than Inc Magazine. How cool, right? But the overall effect of this particular piece was somewhat smaller than you might expect. It’s tough to anticipate the effect a piece *********** of coverage will have on your business – but I’d say the tendency To find Chrometa’s time management app at for us optimistic entrepreneurs is www.chrometa.com. to overestimate that effect. *********** Bottom Line: It’s very tough to get initial traction. Just be patient, and focus on the purest fundamentals – namely your product quality, and customer satisfaction. Keep at it – you’ll get there! PS: If you wonder where all of your time goes, check out Chrometa’s personal time management app at www.chrometa.com.

You Get the Most Thorough Carpet Free Phone Quote Call (916) 224-6624 Cleaning Ever, or it’s FREE! S Carpet Cleaning Do You Know These Secrets That Save You Time, Money, Frustration And Your Health? We’ve all been brought up with the idea that every spring we should clean our homes from end to end and freshen up for our health. This might have come from the idea that in spring, things are fresh and new and cleaning the home will renew your feelings about yourself.

well with any home remedy. Sure you can dust and do the basic cleaning just fine. But drapes, fine rugs and upholstery often cannot be safely cleaned except by a professional. Let’s face it. If those puny little cleaning systems could even come close to the effectiveness of a trained professional using a $55,000.00 steam cleaning system, no one would pay the money for them. But There’s Still One Thing You Should Know . . .

1. Improve Your Health Without Diets Or Pills Pollens, mold, and mildew spores are dumped into the air at incredible intensity. Pollutants from car exhaust, burning fields, and cigarette smoke were also dumped into the stagnant air. All this gunk drifted into your home and when you closed the house up, where do you suppose it’s been ever since? It got trapped in your home. Thanks to today’s air tight, energy efficient homes, your family and guests have been breathing that recycled air-garbage.

I have seen many service personnel that my wife would not allow in our home. Good character and integrity have kept us in business for 21 plus years

2. Your Home Is Your Personal Breeding Ground For Invisible Critters And Varmints In addition to the air-garbage from outside, you have uncontrolled vermin inside. Too tiny to see, dust mites live in your carpet, upholstery, bedding and drapes by the millions. By now their dead bodies and dung are in your house by the billions. They live off your dead skin as do billions of bacteria in your home, including those that cause staph and strep infections. Ever wonder why so many people get strep as soon as it cools off outside? Now you know. Plus, fleas brought into your house last summer don’t die off like they do outside when it freezes. Bacteria and germs have been breeding in the warm fibers of your carpet. 3. Does Your Bedroom Smell Like A Gerbil? Here’s Why… Besides being Harmful to our health, all the germs, bacteria and critters that live off dead skin from us and our pets, stink. They eat skin and along with other excretions, put out tainted methane gas which smells bad. 4. Heavy Soil From Outside Sifts Deep Into Your Carpet Never To Be Seen Again Until the winter rains have washed the sand soil from the roads and sidewalks, heavy soils from outside are tracked onto your carpet, wiggle down deeper than your vacuum can reach and stay there, grinding your carpet down into worthless fibers. You’ll find them in your vacuum bag.

King and Prince of Clean, Gary and Steven Stalick

Cleaning now, will get rid of sandy soils before they do lots of damage or get too deep. 5. Finally – Someone Who Can Remove Those Ugly Black Lines By The Walls, or Crevice of Steps I’ve had new clients call us to evaluate some embarrassing black lines where the carpet meets the wall and at the edges of steps and jagged lines under curtains. They told me no carpet cleaner could get them out and in some cases they had tried up to five different firms. But the black remained. I inspected these lines and found the cause to be an air filtration problem. With extra effort and knowledge on our part, the ugly black lines can be removed. I told the client this and they were apprehensive. I also told them if it didn’t come clean as I described, they would not have to pay us. How’s that for confidence? Yes, we cleaned the ugly black lines. Yes, our clients were happy. 6. Do-It-Yourself Folks Get What They Paid For… …Nothing The problems I have described here can’t be fixed very

Choosing a company can be treacherous. I’ll tell you up front that my service is not for everybody, but here are some reasons to choose me: If all you want is a cheap, brush-the-dirt-off-the-surface cleaning, lots of companies can help you. Choose us when you want deep, thorough cleaning. We’ll give you the fluffiest, freshest, healthiest, longest lasting, clean carpets possible . . .

Will Smart Phones Pay For Themselves?

Now that smart phones (Internet enabled mobile phones) are becoming very common more and more applications are becoming available to make them productive tools. Sales of mobile devices that can access the Internet like, the iPhone, Droid, and Blackberry, etc. are exploding. As sales of Internet enabled handsets continue to rise more software developers are coming up with useful software applications (apps) specifically

Blue Shield of California • Nor-Cal Beverage Nestle Waters • Reznick • Kaiser Permanente Tony’s Fine Foods • Bank of the West

designed to function on these handsets. According to the GreenLiving. com blog one innovative energy saving app for the iPhone, greenMeter uses the phone’s accelerometer to rate the efficiency of your driving technique. Theoretically it should inspire you to become a “hypermiler”, like Honda’s latest hybrid, where the speedometer glows green if you are light on the throttle and turns an angry purply-blue if you’re not. The app tells you if you’re

accelerating aggressively and braking last-minute like a boy racer. Thanks to the proliferation of smart phones another useful technology called QR code is becoming more widely used for quickly identifying and gathering more information about certain objects. A basic QR code resembles a square black and white crossword puzzle. A smart phone user simply points the lens of their phone at an object and QR code reader app then takes the user

to a website with more information about the object. Google makes an app called Google Goggles which will pull up Google search items for the object. In the future instant coupons can be passed via the QR code which the user can instantly redeem it. So, in addition to saving people time and energy, this technology, when used effectively, can actually pave the way for a smart phone to pay for itself.

Ingredients: 1 Pâte Brisée (tart dough) for a 10-inch tart (see all butter crust recipe) or 1 packaged, flat pie crust 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped 1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese (or blue cheese) 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped, or 1/2 teaspoon dried 2 Tbsp maple syrup 2 large granny smith apples (or other good cooking apples such as jonagold or fuji), peeled, cored, chopped 1 teaspoon of lemon juice (optional) Method: 1 Toss the walnuts, gorgonzola, thyme, chopped apples, and maple syrup together in a medium size bowl. As you are working with the apples (chopping them, mixing them in with the other ingredients), if you want, you can squeeze a little lemon juice on them to help keep them from discoloring. Cover the mixture with plastic wrap while you prepare the crust. 2 Preheat oven to 350°F. Roll out pastry dough to 13-inches, at an 1/8 of an inch thickness. Place pastry dough on a rimmed baking sheet. (Rimmed because the pastry will leak butter during the cooking process.) Mound the filling in the middle of the rolled out dough, and spread out evenly to 1 1/2 inches to 2 inches from the edge of the dough. Pleat the edges of the dough over the filling. 3 Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, until crust is nicely browned. If at any time it looks like the walnuts are getting a little burnt, you can lightly tent a piece of aluminum foil over the center. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving. A pizza wheel works great for slicing up the tart. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Apple Crisp Recipe

Ingredients: 7 tart apples, peeled, cored and sliced 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup butter, room temperature Method: 1 Preheat oven to 375°F. In a mixing bowl, combine apples, lemon juice, and vanilla. Toss to combine. 2 Layer sliced apples in a 9 x 12-inch (or approximately the same size) baking pan. 3 Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and oatmeal in a bowl. Cut in the butter. Sprinkle sugar mixture over apples. 4 Bake 45 minutes or until topping looks crunchy and apples are tender. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Serves 8.

3D Printing Rockets Students’ Design Skills to New heights

For many grade-schoolers, talk of mathematics and science invoke a nearly universal response: yuck. At STARBASE Minnesota, instructors have found an assignment that eliminates the aversion of mathematics and science: have the students plan a

mission to Mars that includes building working rockets. The program’s aerospace-themed curriculum provides a technology-rich environment that inspires students, builds their skills, and develops aptitude and confidence. “Students can actually test their

rocket designs modeled in the Dimension 3D Printer the way an engineer would, which gets them excited about the process -- even the icky math part,” says Christina Johnson, Starbase Instructor. The program engages students in an intense, five-day, 20-hour program

that is aligned with the national and state standards, and helps schools meet essential educational benchmarks. Find out how Dimension 3D Printers are playing a major role in helping both students and instructors find success in this program.

Why this Article is so Long

A very close friend sent this to me. You may find this longer than our usual articles, but as a patriotic American I felt moved to print it. Please feel free to send us your response by email: grcommunitynews@sbcglobal.net

*If every school principal gave this speech at the beginning of the next school year, America would be a better place.*   *To the students and faculty of our high school:*   *I am your new principal, and honored to be so. There is no greater calling  than to teach young people.*   *I would like to apprise you of some important changes coming to our school.  I am making these changes because I am convinced that most of the ideas that have dominated public education in America have worked against you, against your teachers and against our country.*   *First, this school will no longer honor race or ethnicity. I could not care less if your racial makeup is black, brown, red, yellow or white. I could  not care less if your origins are African, Latin American, Asian or European, or if your ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower or on slave ships.*   *The only identity I care about, the only one this school will recognize, is your individual identity -- your character, your scholarship, your humanity. And the only national identity this school will care about is American.

This is an American public school, and American public schools were created to make better Americans.*   *If you wish to affirm an ethnic, racial or religious identity through school, you will have to go elsewhere. We will end all ethnicity-, race- and non-American nationalitybased celebrations. They undermine the motto of America, one of its three central values -- e pluribus unum, “from many, one.” And this school will be guided by America’s values.*   *This includes all after-school clubs. I will not authorize clubs that divide students based on any identities. This includes race, language, religion, sexual orientation or whatever else may become in vogue in a society divided by political correctness.*   *Your clubs will be based on interests and passions, not blood, ethnic, racial or other physically defined ties. Those clubs just cultivate narcissism -- an unhealthy preoccupation with the self -- while the purpose of education is to get you to think beyond yourself. So we will have clubs that transport you to the wonders and glories of art, music, astronomy, languages you do not already speak, carpentry and more. If the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being interesting in are those based on ethnic, racial or sexual identity, that means that little outside of yourself really interests you.*   *Second, I am uninterested in whether English is your native language. My only interest in terms of language is

that you leave this school speaking and writing English as fluently as possible. The English language has united America’s citizens for over 200 years, and it will unite us at this school.  It is one of the indispensable reasons this country of immigrants has always come to be one country. And if you leave this school without excellent English language skills, I would be remiss in my duty to ensure that you will be prepared to successfully compete in the American job market. We will learn other languages here -- it is deplorable that most Americans only speak English -- but if you want classes taught in your native language rather than in English, this is not your school.*   *Third, because I regard learning as a sacred endeavor, everything in this school will reflect learning’s elevated status. This means, among other things, that you and your teachers will dress accordingly. Many people in our society dress more formally for Hollywood events than for church or school. These people have their priorities backward. Therefore, there will be a formal dress code at this school.*   *Fourth, no obscene language will be tolerated anywhere on this school’s  property -- whether in class, in the hallways or at athletic events. If you can’t speak without using the f-word, you can’t speak. By obscene language I mean the words banned by the Federal Communications Commission, plus epithets such as “Nigger,” even when used by one black student to

address another black, or “bitch,” even when addressed by a girl to a girlfriend. It is my intent that by the time you leave this school, you will be among the few your age to instinctively distinguish between the elevated and the degraded, the holy and the obscene.*   *Fifth, we will end all self-esteem programs. In this school, self-esteem will be attained in only one way -- the way people attained it until decided otherwise a generation ago -- by earning it. One immediate consequence is that there will be one valedictorian, not eight.*   *Sixth, and last, I am reorienting the school toward academics and away from politics and propaganda. No more time will devoted to scaring you about smoking and caffeine, or terrifying you about sexual harassment or global warming. No more semesters will be devoted to condom wearing and teaching you to regard sexual relations as only or primarily a health issue. There will be no more attempts to convince you that you are a victim because you are not white, or not male, or not heterosexual or not Christian. We will have failed if any one of you graduates this school and does not consider him or herself inordinately lucky -- to be alive and to be an American.* *Now, please stand and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of  our country. As many of you do not know the words, your teachers will hand  them out to you.*

Under The August Moon

Sacramento Chinese Community Service Center (the Center) is committed to providing assistance to new immigrants, refugees, and other underserved individuals in the greater Sacramento area. The purpose of the Center is to provide quality educational, vocational, human services, and health programs to assist these individuals in achieving economic self-sufficiency, social empowerment, and cultural appreciation. The Center is a private nonprofit organization established in 1978. While the agency’s original mission was to aide

newly arrived immigrants in dealing with the myriad challenges of immigration and cultural adaptation, the organization has since expanded to include services to assist all disadvantaged communities through quality education, health, and employment programs. This year alone, the Center has served more than 4,500 clients, including a significant number of at-risk youth and the elderly. On the evening of August 26th, the Center celebrated its 32nd annual anniversary, “Under The August Moon.” The event was held in the Ping Yuen courtyard at the Chinatown

Aaron Sang, Stephanie Cardnes, Satveer Sang, Clarence Williams

Plaza in downtown Sacramento. The Center showcased a brand new school bus donated by the Rotary Club of Sacramento, and recognized those who have made tremendous contributions to enhance the Center’s programs. The Center was privileged to honor this year’s Corporate Honoree, California Capital, and the Community Honorees, Jacquie Bonini, principal at Collis P. Huntington Elementary School, Charlotte Chadwick, principal at John Bidwell Elementary School, and George Porter, principal at John Still Elementary School for their commitment to service,

dedication to the Sacramento community, and partnership with the Center. The Center also celebrated the retirement of T.Y. and Annie Sung, after 15 years of service to the community teaching the Citizenship class. Other highlights included: a delicious dinner catered by Lotus Restaurant, a gallery of Chinese Brush Paintings by Lillian Seto’s art students, a performance by the Dieu Quang Temple Lion Dance Team, and a Tae Kwan Do performance by The Planet Tae Kwan Do Team.

Mr. Quick Books

Michael Row, also known as MR-QuickBooks, has started offering an entirely unique QuickBooks program designed specifically for sole-preneurs and mirco businesses.  He held his first class on Thursday August 19, 2010 with a positive response, one participant Michael Row wrote on his facebook page “That was a great hands-on class on Quick Books software this morning Michael!

It’s Time for New Blood in California Senate Marcel Weiland; Candidate for CA State Senate, 6th District

A tree planted is hope for the future: we plant and tend it because we will benefit in years to come. Young people are the trees we need to encourage in order for us to be assured of a hopeful future in California. Our legislature has an abysmal 9% approval rating. The messy budget process and the $20 billion deficit should only serve to drive the approval rating lower. It is time to look for new leaders who can challenge the Sacramento political machine.

Http:// Globalhappinesssummit.org” The I Am Happy Project is a non-profit charitable organization that began early 2009 by Edwin Edebiri. During a time when disasters, recession and depression are increasing, he wanted to encourage people to shift focus on the things that really matter, such as faith, family and friends. This is the First Annual Global Happiness Summit. It will be the most important and dynamic summit in the history of the happiness movement, bringing together hundreds of industry, government and visionary leaders, research scientists and accomplished students from all over the world. According to Researchers from Harvard Medical School and the University of California, San Diego “When an individual becomes happy, the network effect can be measured up to three degrees. One person’s happiness triggers a chain reaction that benefits not only his friends, but his friends’ friends, and his friends’ friends’ friends. The effect lasts for up to one year.” To register and for more information visit www.globalhappinesssummit.org Contact: Edwin Edebiri, Chief Happiness Officer 415-377-6590 info@ iamhappyproject.org

New Crocker Fundraising Gala Celebrates Completion of Crocker Art Museum Expansion ANR0201089A-091310.indd 1

$100 million capital campaign to fund the Crocker Art Museum expansion is the largest fundraising effort conducted for a cultural cause in Sacramento. In celebration of the completion of the Museum, and to facilitate the final $8 million needed to complete the campaign, the Board of Trustees, major donors, and museum staff will present the completed New Crocker, for the first time, for one memorable gala evening. The New Crocker Fundraising Gala, which celebrates this “masterpiece in the making,” takes place on Saturday, September 25, 2010. The Gala is chaired by Bobbe Brown. Honorary co-chairs are Mort and Marcy Friedman and Joyce and James Teel. Brown states, “The capital campaign has been a true community effort, involving extensive public and private participation. Everyone who has contributed to the campaign has a passionate desire to bring world-class art experiences to the community and its many visitors. There is a great sense of

joy in being a part of making the Crocker a true destination.” The 125,000-squarefoot expansion, the Teel Family Pavilion, designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects (GSAA) more than triples the Museum’s current size and creates extensive new gallery space, four art studio spaces, an auditorium, a café, a redesigned Museum store, expanded library and onsite art conservation and art storage facilities. This Gala begins at 6 pm with an opening reception in Friedman Court and new courtyard. Fine dining will take place from 7:30 to 9 pm in tented dining pavilions in Crocker Park. At 9 pm the orchestra will draw attendees back to the Museum for desserts and dancing. Ceremonial gallery openings begin at 9:30 pm and will feature the debut of two new collections: African and Oceanic art as well as a host of premiere exhibitions. The Museum’s inaugural exhibitions will showcase its current collection and promised gifts in collecting areas including California Impressionism, Abstract Expressionism, Asian art, and

ceramics. The Crocker will also present a series of special exhibitions, among them A Pioneering Collection: Master Drawings from the Crocker Art Museum; Tomorrow’s Legacies: Gifts Celebrating the Next 125 Years; Wayne Thiebaud: Homecoming; and The Vase and Beyond: The Sidney Swidler Collection of Ceramics. With extraordinary art, dancing and music throughout the night, fine dining and wines--all in the New Crocker—this will be an unforgettable premiere event. There will be enticing edibles provided by Paula Le Duc Catering. Decorative elements will be supplied by Got Light?, Classique Party Rentals, and Twigg’s Florals. Marcus Graziano, owner of Capitol Cellars in Roseville, is acquiring donations of wines for the dinner from some of California’s finest boutique wineries. The Gala is sponsored by U.S. Bank, Marcy and Mort Friedman, Murphy Austin Adams Schoenfeld LLP, Rudolph and Sletten, Inc., AT&T, Mercedes-Benz Von Housen Automotive Group and
