Board has budget problem and no easy solutions

Editor’s note: Last week, the Town Crier reported on the proposed savings options that the county’s Fire Chief John Hawkins would present to the Riverside County Board of Supervisors at its March 7 meeting. In order to find nearly $12 million of saving, Hawkins presented several steps, including imposing a fee for emergency medical services, closing Station 63 in Poppet Flats, and employing more two-person medic squads in place of three-person engines in rural and outlying areas (such as Garner Valley). The immediate response from the supervisors was neither enthusiastic nor complacent toward accepting Hawkins’ proposals. County Executive Jay Orr introduced the presentation and explained its intent. “We see clouds on the horizon and increased communication with the

Editor’s Note: The winter heating season historically runs October through March. This ends our review of Hill propane prices for the winter of 2016-17. Propane price have held steady over the last two weeks. The spot (point-of-production) price is down from $0.733 per gallon two weeks ago to $0.628 as of Monday, March 6 (price reporting from national agencies is delayed one week). Residential delivery prices have held steady, with minor reductions. The national average is down from $2.447 per gallon two weeks ago to See Propane, page A8

Fire budget cuts not received with acclaim

board is needed to have their direction.” The county faces several other major budget demands in the next few years, such as the new jail in Indio, changes to the Affordable Care Act and the state returning in-home support services to counties. President John Tavaglione (District 2) explained the board’s position. “We have to look at all of the options; but $100 million [in more expenses] scares the hell out of me. We have to prepare ourselves for the worst … we’ve always been dedicated to the support of the public’s safety and will continue to be, but it’s tough to balance the budget.” Third District Supervisor Chuck Washington was concerned about several of the possible options. “We have to tweak several proposals, which are unacceptable.” As he began discussing the options, Hawkins said directly, “This is a balancing act and clearly important. It involves public safety and a very serious budget gap.” Implementing the two-person medic squads would have caps, according to Hawkins. In outlying areas, the maximum number of annual

calls will be 730. If the unit has more, the department will return it to a three-person engine. One of the four medic squads would be stationed at Station 53 in Garner Valley. Generally, closing Station 63 was viewed negatively, with some apprehension. In discussing the Station 63 closure, Hawkins said, “We really don’t want to recommend this; but at Station 63, Poppet Flats, the call load is low.” Supervisor Marion Ashley (District 5) indicated he would not support this action. During the public-comment period, several Poppet Flat residents came to speak in opposition of the station’s closure. Supervisor Kevin Jeffries (District 1) spoke directly in opposition to the cuts in the Fire Department’s budget. While he offered several alternatives, his concern was the process and the board’s apparent priorities. He firmly stated that he was discouraged that the board was considering cuts to the fire department “before we talk about cutting anyone else that’s not public safety … I believe this board should prioritize services that are most critical to provide protection first … We need to explore other alternatives before the June vote.”

The Idyllwild Indivisibles met again Monday, March 6, this time at Buckhorn Camp. At this meeting, guests from Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s and Rep. Dr. Raul Ruiz’s staffs spoke. Also speaking on how to build bridges between differing opinions were locals Dave Dillon and Mary Morse. Andy Colgan attended on behalf of Ruiz. While he did not take any direct questions, he did state that Ruiz was trying to schedule a meeting in the Idyllwild area later this spring or year. He also mentioned that Ruiz has been appointed to the House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce, which has jurisdiction over some of the health-care legislation.

To the people attending, Colgan said, “These groups are all over the district. The enthusiasm is really great.” Next, Peter Muller, deputy state director for Feinstein, spoke to the group about how to become more involved and engaged in the political process. He also noted the “commitment of people to be involved, I’ve never seen before. It’s really encouraging.” In response to a question, Muller stated that a letter, facsimile or phone call are all treated the same. Collectively, they send a message to the recipient. The presentations from Dillon and Morse were the substantive portion of the meeting. In different ways, they addressed the issue of how to bridge the opinion gap between people in order to reach co-

operation and achieve local goals. Dillon’s Government 101 was titled “The Three D’s: Debate, Dialogue and Deliberation.” While debate can be healthy, Dillon noted that its result is a “winner and loser.” Its purpose is advocacy. Discussion is a communication style. There can be pros and cons, but the result is typically no action. But deliberation leads to a decision based on the facts and finding common goals. Its result is integration. This occurs from assessing and evaluating together the options, and finding places of possible joint action. Morse, from Idyllwild’s Spiritual Mountain Retreat, also spoke to communication styles and how different styles can impede or promote building a bridge. “One of the most important

things we can do is listen — deep listening,” she emphasized. This is the means to compassion for others and understanding their truths, she stated. Noting that creativity is the border between chaos and order was where Morse ended. Before the meeting ended, there was a brief discussion of the possibility that the group might revive the annual Earth Fair in Idyllwild as one of its projects. From II’s Facebook page: “Idyllwild Indivisible is a concerned group of locals dedicated to the advancement of sustainable economic, environmental, and social justice.” At the conclusion, Janice Murasko announced that the next meeting would be 6 p.m. Thursday, April 20, at Town Hall.

MAST hears about snow problems, too By JP Crumrine News Editor The wet winter does not alleviate fire season, it simply creates different threats, Riverside County Fire Chief John Hawkins said during the March meeting of the Mountain Area Safety Taskforce. Grasses dry and die quickly during low rain and drought periods, which creates fire threats. Rain and snow encourage the growth of tall and abundant grasses, which when they die poses another type of fire threat. But fire threats were a small portion of the MAST meeting last week. Marsha Kennedy, Idyllwild resident, spoke to the collected agencies about the mounting concern of the damage and danger inflicted upon local residents from the number of people who come to the Hill to play in the snow following the recent storms. Kennedy emphasized that a place with adequate parking, food concessions and snow is what these visitors are seeking. Unfortunately, in the absence of a specific snow-play site, strangers to town are trespassing on private property, creating damage and often parking illegally, posing a danger for emergency vehicles that have difficulty passing the crowded and sometimes blocked streets. “They’re just looking for places to enjoy the snow and a place to park,” she lamented to the attendees. Unfortunately, in their passion to enjoy the snow, they often become unwelcome and rude visitors — trespassing, ignoring or threatening property owners, and leaving trash scattered in the winter wonderland they seek. One of her suggestions was better signage for Humber Park, which is in the U.S. Forest Service’s domain. More specific signs about the availability of parking or

Obituary Janice Oates Krueger 1925-2017 Janice Oates Krueger, 91, former long-time Idyllwild resident, died Sunday, March 5, 2017, in Auburn, from complications of aging and Alzheimers disease. She was born June 19, 1925, in Oakland, and spent most of her childhood in Elsinore. Her paternal grandfather, John Hanson, was a cattle rancher in Tulare County, where, as a little girl, Janice spent some of her summers fishing and having fun with her sister Jacqueline, brother John, and various cousins and relatives. In the early 1940s, as a teenager, Jan spent several summers in Idyllwild, working as a waitress at the original Idyllwild Inn. While working at the inn, she shared a cabin at the old Gasoline Alley property with another girl and met her future husband, Robert (Bob) Oates, whose family owned a vacation cabin on Fern Valley Road. After she attended high school at Elsinore High, Janice and Robert were married in 1943 and resided in the Glendale area, where their three sons, Ron, Robin and Tim, were born. In addition to taking care of her family, Jan worked part-time as a model during those early family years. While building a vacation home in Fern Valley in 1959, Bob and Jan decided to move to Idyllwild permanently, where they subsequently purchased and remodeled the “Alpine Building” in Fern Valley Corners, where Jan opened and operated the Alpine Pantry restaurant during the 1960s. Janice loved interior design and in the 1970s, began working as an interior decorator in Orange County where she met her second husband, real estate broker Jack Krueger. After retiring, they lived for a number of years in Auburn and then Encinitas. Beloved mother, grandmother and wonderful friend to all who knew her, Jan’s caring and selfless manner made everyone she came in contact with feel special. She always knew the perfect little something that would make a birthday or Christmas meaningful, and started many family traditions that will live on for generations. Her family has the gift of daily journals she wrote for many years, ensuring that her thoughts and love of family will never disappear. Predeceased by her husband Jack Krueger, she is survived by her three sons, Ronald (Linda) Oates of Newcastle, Robin (Sarah) Oates of Idyllwild and Timothy (Jackie) Oates of Irvine; 11 grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren and sister Geraldine Duncan of Rohnert Park.

no parking might discourage drivers from using Fern Valley Road. Frustrated with no available parking lot, they often park along Fern Valley Road, nearly eliminating passage for residents or emergency vehicles. “The Humber Park signs basically are misleading and not applicable to snow visitors. This contributes to the Fern Valley problems,” she said and suggested more effective signage, such as “No snow parking” or “Not snow plowed.” Kennedy said her group realizes these visitors cannot be prohibited or discouraged from coming to Idyllwild. The snow-capped peaks, glistening in the bright winter sun, are a strong attraction for valley and coastal residents. In a survey she conducted, restaurants acknowledged they benefit from additional business, but “it wasn’t across the board,” she stated. “They are here for the day to play in snow, not to buy a cabin.” California Highway Patrol Officer Mike Murawski said it is difficult to cover the whole mountain with limited staff. The deputies do try to warn people not to park along roads and the highways. After 15 or 20 minutes, they will write citations, but “they don’t have the manpower to stay all day.” The Sheriff’s Department should be called about trespassing offenses, he noted. If available, they can come and speak to the offenders. Local residents should avoid a direct confrontation. Kennedy appreciated the feedback and plans a community meeting at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 8, at the Nature Center. Regarding fire issues, Edwina Scott, executive director of the Mountain Communities Fire Safe Council, said the progress has been made on work to revise the Com-

munity Wildfire Protection Plan. Also MCFSC, has some limited funding to help residents remove trees killed from bark-beetle infestations. However, she expressed disappointment in the small attendance at the January MCFSC public meeting. Despite years of drought, only recently changed, enthusiasm for fire protection seems to be waning, Scott said with despair. Supporting her, MCFSC President Norm Walker said his experience suggests that the abundant rain will help grass grow throughout the summer. “People don’t like to do abatement knowing they’ll have to do it again,” he said. “Inspections are the key,” responded Hawkins, who urged finding more ways to increase public awareness of the fire threats. Pine Cove resident Marge Muir noted, “There’s a tremendous influx of new people. You have to go back to more thorough inspections.” Riverside County Fire has three priorities this spring, Hawkins said. Fuel abatement, either fuelbreaks or broadcast burning, is number one. The other two are enforcement of Public Resources Code section 4291, for defensible space, and being prepared to respond. In other business, Mark Moreau of the CC&R said, “There are no operational changes at the Transfer Station. Residents can bring pine needles to the Transfer Station at no charge.” Lisa Thompson of the county’s Waste Management Department, reported that they are working to establish a hazardous waste collection at the grinding station. This may be accomplished later this spring, she added. JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier.com.

Pine Cove Water District is building cash reserves Water reserves coming in spring By JP Crumrine News Editor While its wells may be slowly recovering, the Pine Cove Water District has seen its reserves climb this winter. At the board’s March 8 meeting, General Manager Jerry Holldber proudly noted that since December, cash has increased about $70,000 to $270,000 at the end of February. While the groundwater level for some of its wells has begun to rise, static well (no. 10) remained at 150 feet below ground level. “Give it time. I estimate around May or June we’ll see it rise,” Holldber told the board. “Throughout the summer, I believe it will rise 30 to 40 feet over the next six to eight months.” When asked it the district might be able to reduce its water emergency stage from 2 to 1, Holldber replied that Gov. Jerry Brown’s guidelines still require mandatory

conservation. Although PCWD is in a Stage 2 water emergency, Holldber emphasized “… we’re not penalizing the people. We still charge Stage 1 [water] rates.” President Robert Hewitt added, “I expected to pull out of Stage 2, but apparently that’s not a choice for us.” In February, PCWD customers used about 2 million gallons of water, which was 110,000 gallons less than February 2016. This also is about 500,000 gallons less than February 2013, the baseline month for the State Water Resources Control Board’s monitoring of water savings. Inspection of the PCWD’s storage tanks has been completed, Holldber told the board. He plans to develop a plan to implement any needed repairs during fiscal year 201718. Also, Ordinance 9, which sets water policy, is still being revised. A draft ordinance may be distributed to the board and the public in the next month, according to Hewitt. The Board unanimously approved Resolution 521 setting June 14 as the date for a public hearing on stand-by fees for next fiscal year, which begins July 1. There are no changes in the rates, which have been $30 per acre for many years, Holldber said. JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier.com.

A letter from Chad Schelly

T

his week I had my first encounter with a vicious dog. We were talking with a lady in her front yard when a dog came out of the house and started barking at me aggressively. We literally have 632,547 dogs bark at us every hour so at first I didn’t think anything of it. This dog’s bite was bigger than his bark. I backed away from it, dodging its lunges until two kids in the street threw rocks at it and pretty much saved my life. I got away with limited bloodshed on my ankle. Despite the vicious dog attacks I love my life as a missionary. It’s hard and I’m literally exhausted but it’s all so worth it. I’m happy. I’ve been recognizing how applicable the gospel of Jesus Christ is for every single person. I have yet to find someone who has conveyed a challenge or expressed a doubt that can’t be overcome or resolved though the message that we have the blessing to share. I hope to become the kind of missionary that can help people recognize the blessings that are waiting for them if they ACT upon 5 simple principles. 1. Faith in Jesus Christ 2. Repentance 3.Baptism 4.Receive the Holy Ghost 5.Endure to the End. I love all of you guys!!! I love being a missionary. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and I’m eternally grateful for the opportunity to focus all of my energy sharing this gospel for two years. Enjoy spring while I enjoy Autumn!

Nature Center visitors’ garbage

Enablers of the enemy This column is reprinted with permission from California Publisher, CNPA’s official quarterly newspaper. Current issue: http://bit. ly/2n7wYTg

By Tom Newton CNPA Executive Director Newspapers and media are the “enemy of the people,” according to the president. Well, if that’s the case, then my colleagues and I in Sacramento have apparently been running the Enemy of the People’s trade association: the California Enemy Association. We must be part of the problem. Who knew? Because we all can change, and because no one of good conscience really wants to exist solely to support the Enemy of the People (EoP), perhaps we should re-examine some of the efforts of the California Newspaper Publishers Association to see what course corrections staff can suggest to the board of directors. One of my mentors — Hal Fuson, formerly with the Copley Press — liked to say, “That drink is in us” after something bad happened, especially if the bad thing was a result of something we did wrong or failed to do at all. As we examine CNPA’s efforts over the years, we may find that many of the bad things the industry and its association poured its heart into are indeed “in us” and won’t be so easy to evacuate. Take the whole Freedom of Information thing. Over 60 years ago, the EoP got fed up with local government bodies making decisions behind closed doors and helped to pass the Brown Act. Stronger now than ever, the law presumes folks have a right to know what’s at stake in the local sphere before it’s decided and gives the public the right to be in the room and be heard when the action starts. Exceptions are narrow and based on damn good reasons. This law is now over 65,000 words and could be tough to eradicate, especially after CNPA spent four long years putting this evil sentence into the state’s constitution: The people have the right of access to information concerning the conduct of the people’s business, and, therefore, the meetings of public bodies and the writings of public officials and agencies shall be open to public scrutiny. Oy. Rolling toward hell, the Enemy of the People, through the evil agent Riverside Press-Enterprise, went to the U.S. Supreme Court twice in a decade to establish courts as open and public institutions. In cases simply known as Press-Enterprise I and Press-Enterprise II, the high court ruled that judges in criminal proceedings can’t routinely close their doors to shut out the public. CNPA worked hard decades later to extend these principles to civil proceedings and court records. CNPA’s evil EoP members have had to run into court several times this year to remind judges that these bad principles still exist. In 1968, CNPA helped establish the California Public Records Act, and the Enemy of the People has been trying to fix and “improve” it ever since. It’s been deployed to obtain the exact salaries of public officials and employees, expose the managers in places like the City of Bell and illuminate the pension system and its abuses. It’s been used to uncover death, destruction and mayhem; and to report the cost of the park’s new gazebo. This year’s sins include trying to eliminate delay in processing records requests and correct for the recent phenomenon of “reverse CPRA cases.” It goes on and on with this stuff about the right to know and the right to speak. In the early 1990s, the EoP and CNPA helped enact the nation’s first Anti-SLAPP law, and it’s still one of the strongest. The law helps people with something to say from being bullied into silence by abusive and meritless lawsuits. The EoP’s trade association has fought back bills to criminalize libel, helped

It’s clear who is more rationale editor: We couldn’t help but notice that, in the selection of letters regarding Idyllwild Indivisible, there were two discrete types of correspondence. The letters from members or their associates were literate, considered and dispassionate, and addressed the issues in a rational manner. Those from what we assume are their opponents showed the subtle rhetorical dynamics of nursery school. The level of vitriol is unnecessary and demeans those who hold differing views while still wishing the best for our republic. We hardly know what Idyllwild Indivisible is all about, but just by reading the pro and con letters, it’s clear who is more rational. Societies will always have — and should always have — differing views but, as Thomas Jefferson memorably said in his first inaugural address, “… every difference See Readers next page

A Healthy Idyllwild

Chief concerns What Does Fire & Life Safety Look Like to You? By John R. Hawkins Fire Chief Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department Before I offer some ideas on fire and life safety, please understand that I am honored for the Idyllwild Town Crier to invite me to share important emergency information with you. Simply, I thank you for reading my thoughts. So, what does fire and life safety look like to you? For your family? For your community? For your fellow workers? Have you ever thought beyond the personally life threatening obvious and really examine how you view your life? And how fire might change it? None of us like to just think about bad thoughts. But, we must recognize hazards to avoid risks. Life can be very fragile when exposed to life threatening hazards particularly fires. Annually, fire kills about 2,600 American residents. Before the release of a wonderful book, “America Burning,” during the early 1970s, fire took the lives annually of 12,000 citizens. The dramatic reduction in life loss is due to the recommendation in “America Burning” to increase the use of smoke detectors and automatic fire sprinklers. Working smoke detectors save lives. Working automatic fire sprinklers extinguish or hold in check about 95 percent of fires. Did you know these fire statistics? Knowing the hazards allows you to mitigate the risks of fire. Fire and life safety hazards confront us in many ways. The hazard might be in or around our residence, might be a neighborhood hazard, might be a community hazard, etc. If fire is accidently or negligently introduced to the hazard, the risk becomes one to life and property. The risk is what gets our attention but not often seriously enough for us to do something to abate the hazard or minimize the fire risk. The National Fire Protection Association provides statistics on what hazards exist in and around residences. Unless otherwise specified, home fires are limited to fires in or on structures. All home structure fires and home fire deaths are shown in the top two rows for context. The period of time studied was 2007-2011. Fire cause % of all fire causes Home cooking fires 30.8 Home grill fires ,including outside fires 1.7 Home heating fires 11.9 Home structure smoking materials 3.5 Home electrical distribution & lighting 4.4 Home child playing with fire 1.4 Outside child play 7.4 Lightning 4.4 Home candle fires 2.1 Brush, grass or forest 26.6 Home intentional fires 5.7 The NFPA table clearly shows where fires happen in and around structures. Let us first examine fires in structures. The number one cause of home fires is cooking fires at 30.8 percent. The second-greatest fire cause is from heating fires. With this enlightening information, we should be able to identify the hazards, such as combustible materials too close to cooking fires or defective heating components. Often when cooking, we don’t pay close enough attention to a deep fat boiler which leads to a fire originating from the boiler and extending to the kitchen area. A defective, leaking chimney can allow hot embers to escape the chimney and extend to the attic. Everyone on the mountain is appropriately concerned about outdoor or wildland fires. The NFPA table shows that 26.6 percent of all such fires burn natural fuels. While there are many causes,the threat can be mitigated by doing your hazard reduction — defensible space clearance around all structures for 100 feet or to the property line, whichever is nearer (Public Resources Code §4291). That will reduce the hazard. Then, if you are careful how you dispose of hot ashes, don’t negligently burn trash, etc., you will reduce or eliminate the fire risk. Firefighters need you to fulfill your role to clear hazardous fuels from around all structures you control. We have a much better chance of saving your place when you do your required clearance. Unfortunately, not everyone values clearance around their structure. Still, we will inspect and help you be more safe. I hope this article helps you better visualize what is a fire hazard, what is a fire risk and how can you mitigate both hazards and risks to live a safe life and enjoy a high quality of life. We want to help you be safe but ask that you lead your own path to safety for family and yourselves. Thank you very much. As I frequently tell our firefighters, please take care, be safe, have fun and live the dream. John Hawkins is the fire chief for the Cal Fire Riverside

Here is a worthy puzzle. Celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, irritable bowel syndrome, sensitivity to FODMAPs, wheat allergy and most importantly other serious medical conditions such as cancer share some initial and common symptoms: bloating, pain, constipation/diarrhea, and flatulence, to mention only a few.

Virtually all sources recommend consulting with your knowledgeable health provider before making any changes that might mask underlying causes. “… it is important to recognize that many gastrointestinal diseases present with similar symptoms, so the real danger

This winter’s heavy rains have left many asphalt roads and driveways crumbling or covered with potholes. That’s made the state fertile ground for a long-standing construction scam: families of unlicensed paving and seal coating contractors sweeping in from out-of-state and taking advantage of unsuspecting homeowners. Friday, March 3, investigators from the Contractors State License Board’s Statewide Investigative Fraud Team moved quickly after receiving a complaint about possible transient criminals from Texas who may have tried to con an elderly woman in the Wilton area, south of Sacramento, out of $16,000. The woman told investigators she was approached while doing yard work by two to three men and a woman, believed to be Johnny Costello and his son David Costello, and Christine Nevils, all of Katy, Texas. She said the group told her they had seal coating left from a previous job and offered her a “great deal” to pave her driveway and parking area. She agreed, but later stopped payment on the $16,000 worth of checks she wrote to Nevils and another woman, Sandra Costello, after having second thoughts. It’s common for transient criminals to ask for payment directly to individuals rather than a company. A friend, who is a licensed contractor, urged the victim to contact CSLB. SWIFT investigators teamed with investigators from the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office and worked with the victim to try and bring the suspects back to her house last Friday to collect a new check. Sandra Costello, 50, and Nevils, 58, appeared at the house and were arrested. They now could face multiple charges, including grand theft, residential burglary, theft by false pretenses, elder abuse and contracting without a license. In the handbag of Sandra Costello, investigators found almost $46,000 in cash and an estimated $200,000 in jewelry, including six Rolex watches. Those items are being held as evidence. The pair’s 2017 Chevy Suburban was impounded, but later released. The two were jailed, with bail set at $50,000 each. They quickly made bail and were released. Their first court appearance was Monday, March 13. Investigators believe the four, and likely other family members, traveled with multiple sets of paving and seal-coating equipment from Texas into Southern California, up through Bakersfield and the Central Valley, and finally into the Sacramento area, likely victimizing homeowners all along the way. David Castillo, 51, is on probation after being convicted

is that in assuming a person has non-celiac gluten sensitivity, they are not evaluated appropriately and a more serious illness is missed and allowed to progress untreated,” said Daniel Leffler, MD, MS, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition triggered by consuming the protein called gluten found primarily in wheat and some other grains. It is a very serious illness that, in turn, can lead to a variety of other serious conditions caused primarily by the lack of absorption of critical nutrients due to a damaged gut. It is diagnosed with a blood test; if positive, this may well be followed by biopsy of the gut to confirm the diagnosis. Wheat allergies also can be determined by a blood test plus a skin-prick test. Wheat allergy should not be confused with gluten sensitivity. Even though gluten is found in wheat, there are other nutrients in wheat that can cause symptoms in a person with wheat allergy. And the allergy sufferer does not have to avoid the other grains in which gluten may be found. NCGS is on the same spectrum as celiac disease, but the immune response is different. It is diagnosed only by process of exclusion. First see a qualified provider to get tested for wheat allergy and true celiac disease. If these are ruled out, then your provider may recommend a gluten-elimination diet. If you feel better reducing your intake of gluten, then you might have NCGS. This improvement should persist over time and not be attributable to a placebo effect. It is very important that a knowledgeable health-care provider and, perhaps a dietitian, work with you through this process. Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols (FODMAPs) are naturally occurring sugars that are poorly absorbed in the gut, leading to gastrointestinal symptoms in some people. They are found in common foods such as some dairy products, wheat, other grains, and certain fruits and vegetables. Some medical researchers are now examining the possibility that reactions to ingestion of FODMAPs may be misdiagnosed as “gluten sensitivity.” So, surveying these various possible conditions, it seems to me that a thorough medical work-up is paramount.

of elder abuse related to a similar construction scheme in Florida. CSLB and DA investigators urge anyone in California who believes they were victimized by the group, operating with the company name “Blacktop Seal Coating” or “D & C Paving,” to contact CSLB investigators at 916255-2924. Also call if you’ve been victimized, or even approached by others with a similar sales pitch, as transient criminals often travel in groups, and operate under different personal or business names. CSLB urges consumers to watch for these “red flags” as well: • No CSLB-issued contractor’s license • Unsolicited offers to do seal coating, paving, roofing or painting • Claims of leftover materials • High-pressure sales or scare tactics • Reluctance to sign a written contract • Demand for payment in cash or checks written to individuals or their spouses, rather than to the business • Brand new vehicles, large pickup trucks with a large tank on the bed or pulling a trainer, dump trucks, or other heavy road construction equipment with out-of-state license plates, no plates at all, or obscured license plates • Toll-free or out-of-state telephone number, instead of a local contact number Note: All suspects are presumed innocent until their case is resolved.

Reaching the CSA 36 chairman Editor: Many years ago, the residents of Idyllwild approved a tax measure that funded local recreation within a specific geographical area (referred to as Community Service Area 36 or CSA 36). An oversight committee was formed to ensure the tax money was spent on activities the community desired. The CSA 36 committee conducts public meetings on a regular basis in order to keep in touch with public concerns and to discuss current recreational programs. (CSA 36 money also funds some street lighting.) The next scheduled meeting is at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 23. The meeting will take place at Town Hall. The CSA 36 committee welcomes those who are able to attend. For those citizens who are unable to attend but would like to contact a committee member, you may do so by email.

Gutierrez hopes to suppress evidence Hearing later this week By JP Crumrine News Editor The attorney for Frank Gutierrez of Idyllwild, who was arrested in July 2015, has requested a hearing to suppress certain evidence. At the March 10 trial readiness conference, Melissa McConaghay, a deputy public defender, submitted the motion. Judge Bambi Moyer agreed to schedule a hearing on it for Friday, March 17. In the court report, it stated, “The Court finds good cause exists to allow motion to trail.” Gutierrez, 67, was arrested when Riverside City Police, in cooperation with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, arrested Lisa Marie Brown, of Riverside, for hit-and-run, vehicular manslaughter and possession for sale of methamphetamine. The arrests were made in Idyllwild where Gutierrez was living at the time. Gutierrez was originally arrested for various drug-related felonies and possession of stolen firearms. His arrest appeared to be a byproduct of Brown’s arrest, who later pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six years in state prison. Mothers of fifth- and sixth-grade girls were treated to a tea and fashion show at Idyllwild School in May of 1975. JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier.com.

A magnitude 3.6 earthquake about 1 1/4 miles east-southeast of Loma Linda was felt by some on the Hill Monday at about 10:07 p.m. It was followed by a 2.8 magnitude tremor about 7.5 miles north of Banning a minute later, according to the U.S. Geological Survey CalTech website.

One injury traffic incident on Hill roads last week One injury traffic incident occurred over the last week on Hill roads according to Darren Meyer, public information officer for the California Highway Patrol. According to the responding officer’s report, at 11 a.m. Sunday, March 12, Ty Cabrera, 48, of Homeland, was riding his black 2013 Harley Davidson motorcycle northbound on Highway 243 near the intersection of Highway 74. At the same time, Andrew Hodgson, 51, of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, was riding his orange KTM motorcycle southbound. According to the CHP report, as the motorcycles approached each other on a curve, Cabrera crossed the double-yellow line and sideswiped Hodgson’s motorcycle, causing both bikes and riders to go down. Both riders complained of pain to their left ankles and were transported by American Medical Response — Cabrera to Riverside County Regional Medical Center in Moreno Valley and Hodgson to San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital in Banning. Weather and road conditions were clear and dry, and no alcohol was found to be a contributing factor.

On April 4, 2017 at 09:00 AM, in front of the Corona Civic Center, 849 W. Sixth Street, Corona, CA 92882, MTC Financial Inc. dba Trustee Corps, as the duly Appointed Trustee, under and pursuant to the power of sale contained in that certain Deed of Trust recorded on August 8, 2008 as Instrument No. 2008-0438827, of official records in the Office of the Recorder of Riverside County, California, executed by SAM A SHIROKAWA, TRUSTEE OF THE SAM A SHIROKAWA REVOCABLE TRUST DATED JUNE 11, 2008, as Trustor(s), in favor of LIBERTY REVERSE MORTGAGE INC. as Beneficiary, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER, in lawful money of the United States, all payable at the time of sale, that certain property situated in said County, California describing the land therein as: AS MORE FULLY DESCRIBED IN SAID DEED OF TRUST The property heretofore described is being sold “as is”. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 52550 SYLVAN WAY, IDYLLWILD, CA 92549 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the Note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said Note(s), advances if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. 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 $225,915.44 (Estimated). 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. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. 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 In Source Logic at 702-659-7766 for information regarding the Trustee’s Sale or visit the Internet Web site address listed below for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA05001143-16-1. 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.

Page A8 - Idyllwild Town Crier, March 16, 2017

Propane Continued from page A1 $2.402 as of Monday, March 6. In the Western region, those comparables are $2.543 two weeks ago to $2.492 on March 6. The U.S. Energy Information Administration published a short-term energy outlook on Tuesday, March 7, predicting a colder heating season in 201718. The forecast is based on information supplied by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Five percent of U.S. households heat primarily with propane, according to the EIA. “EIA expects these households to spend less on heating this winter than in eight out of the past ten winters, but more than last winter, when both heating demand and propane prices were low,” noted the report. Fuel expenditures for individual households are highly dependent on the size and energy efficiency of homes and their heating equipment, home insulation, thermostat settings and local weather conditions. If the coming winter is 10 percent warmer than forecast, according to the EIA report, average propane prices could be 6 percent above this winter’s prices. If it is 10 percent colder than forecast, those prices could be 49 percent greater than this year’s average. Before reporting local supplier prices, it is important to note that propane prices change daily. Prices quoted to the Town Crier by suppliers may have changed by the time of publication, much less by the time of billing by suppliers. Dave Castaldo, AC Propane, one of the first local suppliers to begin sharing propane per gallon delivery prices, stressed that prices he quotes can vary to some degree. “I know the price when I pick it up,” he said. “There are many factors affecting price and if a refinery goes down or offline, that can immediately affect pricing.” Castaldo explained that his most recent pick-up price was actually $2.79 per gallon two weeks ago because of two refineries having supply issues that affected their price to him. That differed from the $2.39 he had estimated and quoted to the Town Crier prior to his actual pickup of the propane at point-of-production and storage. AC Propane, Amerigas, Diamond Valley and SoCal Propane are the suppliers that quote prices to the Town Crier. As of Monday,

March 13, supplier quotes are as follows: • AC Propane: $2.79 per gallon, but could be as low as $2.39, and generally 40 cents less per gallon for owner tanks; • Amerigas: $2.19 community pricing; • Diamond Valley: $2.47 per gallon or $2.27 per gallon for owner tanks; • SoCal Propane: $2.77 per gallon or $2.47 per gallon for owner tank with 10 cents per gallon discount for vets (permanent) and for referrals (for heating season for customers referring and for those referred). Suburban and Ferrellgas do not share pricing with the Town Crier. Readers are advised to check per-gallon pricing with their suppliers when ordering a refill or simply check on a regular basis if on a “fill as needed” basis to be aware of price fluctuation. Propane prices can fluctuate widely during a heating season and consumers are responsible for policing their pricing. Readers have shared some of their negative experiences with Hill propane suppliers. From those stories there are certain cautionary steps propane users should take: • Check your tank regularly to monitor how much propane you’re using and if that seems reasonable based on your use for heating, cooking and water heaters. • If you suspect a leak, request an immediate leak check. Propane suppliers are under an obligation to check the tank if a customer suspects a leak. According to SoCal Propane CEO Andrew Kotyuk, “If a customer reports they think their tank is leaking, the supplier must absolutely go out to check to make sure the tank is safe. It’s a supplier’s duty to protect them [the customer] and yourself [the supplier]. • Ask before delivery what your price per gallon will be, inasmuch as propane prices fluctuate, generally becoming more expensive as the heating season wears on. • If you’re on a supply-as-requested basis, when ordering less than a tank fill, ask for email or written confirmation of the amount you requested, as well as the price-per-gallon you will be charged; • With any requested action, ask if there is a charge for that action and how much that is, such as how much to check if a tank is leaking or any other action, such as an emergency fill.

Active-shooter training at MEMSCOMM meeting

By Marshall Smith Staff Reporter

The Thursday, March 16, Mountain Emergency Services Committee meeting will feature a training on what to do if one is in an environment where there is an active shooter. Jerry Hagen, MEMSCOMM coordinator, stressed this is a training, not a presentation. Based on the latest protocols, sheltering in place is no longer what is recommended. Homeland Security protocols advise preparation — knowing your

options if confronted with an active shooter in a familiar workplace environment, or a public building or arena. Contemplating one’s options, with no prior thought regarding active-shooter contingencies, is too little, too late, according to Homeland Security. Given the number of active-shooter situations over the last few years, everyone is advised to consider what to do should they be in that environment. Current protocols are “run, hide, fight.” Run out of the space if possible, hide in a con-

cealed space and, if the shooter is still approaching your space, fight as a last resort. Preparation includes knowing, for work spaces and public spaces, closest and alternate evacuation routes, possible hiding places and what is nearby that might be used by you as a weapon. The training is at the Idyllwild Library Community Room at 9 a.m. Thursday, March 16. It is open to the public and there is no cost to attend.

Soboba Tribe breaks ground for replacement casino-resort   In 1983, the Soboba Tribe of San Jacinto cautiously ventured into Indian gaming with humble beginnings, a simple bingo hall in a temporary sprung structure and pre-fabricated trailer. On Tuesday, Feb. 28, after 22 years of struggles and challenges, legal battles and negotiations, changes and building, the tribe and casino management proudly broke ground to mark the beginning of the construction of a modern, permanent casino-resort.     Tribal Administrator and Soboba Tribal member Michael Castello opened the ceremony by welcoming the invited guests and dignitaries present, and then introduced Steven Estrada, Chairman of the Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians who provided a traditional prayer and blessing in his native language. Before a few words by the chairman, Councilwoman Rose Salgado said, “We must give gratitude for all our ancestors before us and for those who fought for our rights. We must acknowledge all the tribal members and elders who gave us perseverance.” Those in attendance in-

cluded Soboba tribal members, administrators, city and corporate officials, casino management and team members, as well as hundreds of invited guests who came to witness the historic occasion. The Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians celebrated the official ground breaking of the new property on the corner of Lake Park Drive and Soboba Road with an invitation-only ceremony. The new resort-casino will be located just a few miles from the current casino property.

The complex will feature an 83,500-squarefoot casino floor with 2,000 slot machines and 24 table games, surrounded by eateries, bars, a sports lounge, a high-limit room, and many other indoor and outdoor amenities. The new hotel will feature more than 200 rooms and suites. According to the individual who has been tasked to build this project and the future casino-resort’s General Manager Scott Sirois, guests will arrive to a hotel with spectacular amenities and

sumptuous suites, modern technology and a few surprises. These extra touches will be a first for the Inland Empire and possibly the nation. The new facility will generate hundreds of new job opportunities and millions of dollars of economic stimulus for the local community, according to a press release, an opportunity which the city of San Jacinto is welcoming with open arms. The land became officially under construction following the ceremony.

Four Idyllwild Middle School students — Ruby McKellar, Alo LoPresto, Zada Smith and Geneva Dagnall — perfectly captured the zany fun of spring break, albeit from a middle school, not college, perspective, in a trailer for the yet-to-be-made feature “It Was the Dog Toy.” Deftly shot and edited with up-tempo breezy music, the students’ send-up of innocent fun and nothing but fun is a joy to watch. For six years, Idyllwild Middle School Cinema Night has propelled

novice movie makers to hone their skills and compete with their classmates to make the best short film. This year’s Cinema Night was held during school hours on Friday, March 3, and the talented quartet of Ruby, Alo, Zada and Geneva took top honors for their madcap Palm Springs pool romp, in an award voted on by their classmates. Middle School Associated Student Body students decorated for the event and served theater-inspired snacks to an enthusiastic audience. Middle School English teacher Kirsten Ingbretsen coordinated the event and competition. Judging by the feel-good vibe, sophistication and overall quality of “It Was the Dog Toy” trailer, Idyllwild Middle School is producing some skilled artists who also understand the importance of simply having fun. To view the sixth-graders’ trailer, visit https://youtu.be/6V3cMEcCk5s. Marshall Smith can be reached at marshall@towncrier.com.

Big year for Idyllwild Garden Club By Marshall Smith Staff Reporter New Idyllwild Garden Club President Gary Parton is expecting this year to be a big one for the club. Parton announced a June 10 garden tour of four Idyllwild homes, an expanded offering of field trips, and the use of St. Hugh’s Episcopal Church lot for parking for the Saturday, April 29, Lilac Walk, Art and Tea. “We’ll provide shuttle service from the lot and that

12 eagles spotted in SoCal Lake Hemet hosts a resident pair of eagles By JP Crumrine News Editor Saturday was the fourth and last bald eagle count of the 2016-17 season. Volunteers, also known as citizen scientists, and federal and state biologists spotted 12 bald eagles at various Southern California lakes. The nesting adult pair at Lake Hemet was among the dozen eagles seen this weekend. Seven adults and five subadults or juveniles were observed during the one-hour count period Saturday morning. For the nearly 200 participants, the clear skies and windless morning created perfect conditions for the count. The Lake Hemet contingent included more than a dozen observers. At Silverwood State Recreation Area, two subadult bald eagles were seen. At Lake Arrowhead, two adult bald eagles and one subadult were seen. But counters observed five eagles at Big Bear Lake, three of whom were adults. The next eagle count will be in December for the beginning of the 2017-18 eagle census. The U.S. Forest Service encourages visitors to Garner Valley to stop at the Forest Service’s Lake Hemet Day Use Area and just look across the lake. The eagles are often flying overhead or sitting in the trees above the picnic area. JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier.com.

will help prevent parking congestion on Fern Valley Road,” said Parton. “It will take a little of the stress away from people parking and having to walk longer distances to the garden site.” Parton also announced the Lilac Walk, Art and Tea is featured in Westways Magazine. He noted the International Lilac Society has confirmed that a delegation of its members will attend next year’s Lilac Walk in Idyllwild. “They will be coming from all over the world,” said Parton. “About 80 people in all. It’s very exciting for

Strawberry Creek Village hosts delayed grand opening By Marshall Smith Staff Reporter Strawberry Creek Village, Idyllwild’s newest vacation rental property, is staging its delayed grand opening in March. The grand opening was delayed for four months following an unfortunate incident that severely impacted the Hinds family, owners of the Village. On Saturday, Nov. 19, Cindi Hinds, recently from the San Francisco area, was in the front yard of the family’s newly renovated vacation rental property putting touches on exterior landscaping. It was one day prior to the day the first guest would occupy one of their recently remodeled units and just over a week before their scheduled Sunday, Nov. 27, grand opening. Hinds was adjusting a landscape light on a deer on the property when a car, driven by Idyllwild resident Ed Hansen, apparently failed to negotiate a curve, came up onto the property in the area in which she was working and struck her. Hinds was airlifted to a trauma center in Palm Desert, having sustained serious injuries, including a broken pelvis and three out of four ligaments torn in the right knee. Now, after a long and difficult four-month recovery, Hinds and family are looking forward to their rescheduled grand opening from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 25. A ribbon cutting is at noon. Strawberry Creek Village is a family operation, jointly created out of a love for the property and need for more space for their extended family — Cindi and Rick, their children and grandchildren, and Cindi’s mom, Joyce Schilling. “I’m happy to be here in Idyllwild and even happier to be alive,” said Cindi. The family decided to retire to Idyllwild after visiting. They bought their home on Strawberry Creek in 2015. Then when the current property that is now Strawberry Creek Village became available, they moved quickly to lock down the sale. That was in June 2016. Cindi and Rick have a shared background

Of the four vacation rental units within Strawberry Creek Village, perhaps the most iconic is an authentic schoolhouse, nearly 100 years old, restored to elegant rusticity by the Hinds family, owners of the Village. A sign, below, found in the old school building during its remodel, recounts the building’s use as a schoolhouse in Corona before its move to Idyllwild. Said Strawberry Creek Village co-owner Cindi Hinds, “The schoolhouse was our inspiration to create a village.” PHOTOS BY MARSHALL SMITH

in vacation rentals and property management. They owned and operated a 6 ½ acre property, 6,000-square-foot estate home that could accommodate 22 guests in Castro Valley just across the bay from San Francisco. Called Deer Crossing Inn, the property was first run as a bed and breakfast and then as a vacation rental for large events. Cindi also has a back-

ground in hotel management. “When we came here, we intended to retire completely,” said Cindi. “But then we have a large family and our home only has three bedrooms. So, when the property [for the inn] became available, it just seemed the right thing to do. We found the sign about the schoolhouse on the property and that inspired us to create our vil-

lage. The sign reads, ‘This 93 year old schoolhouse was moved to this site in 1924 from east of Corona.’ That was our inspiration.” In the renovation, Cindi acted as decorator in chief and Kenny Gioeli provided landscaping,

with help from other family members and locals. The Hinds family will welcome visitors and guests to their grand opening with tours, free drawings and complimentary refreshments. Their village comprises

the Historic Schoolhouse, the Creekview Barn, the Day Dreamer’s Den and the Mill House. The property also features a Bocce Ball court and a hot tub. Marshall Smith can be reached at marshall@ towncrier.com.

March 2017 — Week 3 March 21 – April 19

Your love life has taken a back seat to work lately, but that is all about to change with a trip. Pack your bags, Aries, and prepare to have a good time.

April 20 – May 20

Mischief translates into magic at a party. Who knew, Taurus? A friend’s casual observations inspire a change for the good. A note boosts spirits.

May 21 – June 21 Too many missteps make for one cranky Gemini. Hang in there. The end is near. A goal is exceeded beyond your wildest dreams. Celebrate!

June 22 – July 22 Tick-tock, tick-tock. Time is a-wasting. Get a move on, Cancer. Consider the services of a pro, if needed. A fitness trend catches your eye.

The luck of the Irish is smiling on you this week, Leo. All eyes will be on you to make things happen, and you will not disappoint. A windfall is icing on the cake.

August 23 – September 22 Actually, Virgo, you are right. No one is willing to admit it at this point, however. Be patient, and you will receive your due in good time.

September 23 – October 22 Your need to give is admirable, but if you aren’t careful, it could get you into trouble this week. Give only if you can afford to do so, Libra.

October 23 – November 21 Uh-uh-uh, Scorpio. You’ve been in the shadows for far too long. Step out and be seen. Your talents are to be admired. A friend makes a tempting offer.

November 22 – December 21 Financial matters can no longer be put on the back burner. Attend to them now, Sagittarius, while you still have the resources to make an impact.

December 22 – January 19 You get the gist, but this time, it will pay to have all of the details. Study the situation from every angle, Capricorn, before you proceed.

January 20 – February 18

Step right up, Aquarius. It’s your turn to be in the spotlight. Prepare to amaze! A book inspires a walk down memory lane and a reunion of sorts.

February 19 – March 20

You will have many hard choices ahead of you this week, Pisces. Lean on your trusted advisors when possible. Communication miscues lead to chaos at work. FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY

Hockey

Idyllwild’s proud hockey Dad Brian Smith submitted this account of last week’s Wildcats game: Last weekend, the Wildcats started their playoff bid for the 2016-2017 season. In game one, the Wildcats faced the Anaheim Jr. Ducks. Three minutes into the first period, the Jr. Ducks scored their first goal of the game. With 3 minutes, 30 seconds to go in the period, the Jr. Ducks scored a wrap-around goal, ending the period 2-0. The Ducks started the second period scoring two goals in the first 30 seconds. Four minutes later, they added another goal to go up 5-0. With four minutes, 30 seconds to go in the period, Scott Hommel scored an end-to-end goal to put the Wildcats on the board. Two minutes later, the Ducks added another goal, ending the

period 6-1. In the third period, there were scoring chances on both ends, and with three minutes to go, the Ducks scored for a final score of 7-1. In game two, the Wildcats played the Pasadena Maple Leafs. The Wildcats started off strong, but there were no goals in the first period. With just under five minutes to go in the second period, the Maple Leafs scored the first goal of the game. The Maple Leafs scored again in the final second of the period. With six minutes, 30 seconds to go in the third period, the Maple Leafs scored to go up 3-0. The Wildcats had many scoring chances, but were unable to find the back of the net, falling to the Maple Leafs 3-0. After the first two losses, the Wildcats found themselves in a must-win situation for game three against the California Heat. In the first period, the Wildcats again started strong, dominating the play through most of the period. Then the Heat got a 3-on-1 break and scored the first goal of the game. Midway through the second period, the Heat scored again to go up 2-0. With no goals in the third period, the Wildcats were held without a goal for the second straight game, ending their chances to advance to the second round of the playoffs. The Wildcats will have a few tournaments to play from now until the next regular season starts in September. We appreciate everyone who sponsored Idyllwild’s Adam Smith and the Wildcats this season.

e STUDENTS OF THE WEEK e Idyllwild School fourthgrade teacher Lindsay Crater chose Dayra Lopez-Gutierrez (left) and Martina Navarrete-Urrutia as students of the week. “Dayra is an enthusiastic student who lights up the room with her smile,” said Crater. “She is a great student with a creative mind. Dayra helps others and works hard. Martina loves to learn. She always goes above and beyond in the classroom. Martina is kind and a great friend to everyone she meets.” PHOTO BY MARSHALL SMITH

ART’S CORNER By Arthur Connor Lowman Concert Hall, 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 9 Parvati Mani, piano Music of Brahms, Scriabin and Rachmaninoff

maining two selections of the program: the Sonata #2, Opus 19 of Alexander Scriabin came forth as a transitional work between the composer’s early and late periods, with particular forcefulness in the concluding movement. And in the evening’s finale, the Variations on a Theme of Corelli, Opus 42 of Sergei Rachmaninoff (which actually is not Corelli’s theme), Ms. Mani effected a similar balance between the virtuoso sections and the more contemplative reworkings of the “La Folia” theme. The assembled audience was more than appreciative of all three works, with resounding applause following each of them, and one could only have wished that more people had filled more of the seats to hear such a masterful interpretive performance as this was.

As an incentive to celebrate the warmer weather recently, the Idyllwild Arts Academy faculty gave the community ample opportunity this past Thursday evening with a carefully selected program of late Romantic piano music, as provided by a very capable piano pedagogue in the person of Parvati Mani. The rather spacious confines of Lowman Hall proved a sonorous environment, and a small group of interested IAA students and patrons were in attendance to hear that well-balanced auditory offering. The six pieces of Johannes Brahms’ Klavierstucke, Opus 118 proved a worthy introduction to the talents of the performer, as well as the aural capabilities of the concert venue.
