Clifton Maclin At the heart of what my  message is about is how our personal  drive to be the best we can be, does not  take place in a vacuum. As humans, we are always  affec ng, and being affected by, the herd surrounding us.    My drive for personal extraordinary performance  arose out of the values and  personal example of my  parents, and the people they  systema cally exposed me  to as a child, like Dr. Milton  Friedman, the preeminent  economist,  and his   friendship with Malcolm X  (Yes! My father introduced  them to each other. They  were always the "smartest guys in the room at my  parents' get‐togethers. They had a devoted friendship of  which the general public was unaware.) Their brilliance  was obvious, and it inspired  me as a child.    When we choose  the systema c path to  personal excellence we are  always inspiring people, we  do not know, to do the  same. When this is done on  a wide enough scale, we  have the poten al to inspire our entire culture, even the  rest of humanity, to ever greater levels of species‐wide 

The pursuit of excellence achievement. That is why I do  what I do. So even though my  training to continue being a  World Champion bodybuilder  may seem to be very  narcissistic on the surface,  fundamentally achieving  championship status is less a  victory for me, than it is a  continuation of our very human drive to elevate the  achievement of the human herd.     On an immediate level, I have raised two young  people to adulthood as a single parent. I have five  godchildren who m I have  raised to be super stars. They  keep me accountable. I can  only expect from them what I  model for them. These are  my vey extraordinary babies.  All, except one have a father  serving a life term prison. None of my babies will follow in  their fathers' footsteps.    Mr. Maclin is an Investment Advisor, with forty years of  experience as a foreign trade finance specialist, merger and acquisi on  specialist and quan ta ve securi es analyst, journalist and educator.    As founder, president, and Chief Investment Officer of Maclin  Interna onal, Incorporated, Mr. Maclin has advised individual and  corporate clients in the areas of investment por olio structuring  andmanagement; strategic planning to formulate and achieve financial  and overall business objec ves.

Ken Roberts One way to help achieve  your long term financial goals is to  max out your tax deferred savings.  IF you have a 401k or another  employer sponsored re rement plan at work, you should  contribute the most you can afford. If you don’t have an  employer sponsored plan, you can  always use an IRA, Individual  Re rement Account.     If you’re already making the  maximum contribu on to your  re rement plan, you can add to your  tax deferred savings by using an HSA.  Health Savings Accounts or HSAs can  be excellent financial planning tools.    To be eligible for an HSA you  must be enrolled in an HSA‐qualified  health plan, cannot have an FSA.  Flexible Spending Account and you  cannot be enrolled in Medicare, Medicaid or Tricare. HSA‐ qualified plans are high deduc ble health insurance plans.  Your insurance provider or human resources person  should be able to tell you if your health plan is HSA‐ qualified.     For 2016, the minimum deduc ble to qualify for an  HSA is $1300 for an individual or $2,600 for a family plan.  The max out of pocket expense is $6,550 for an individual  and $13,100 for a family. 

What’s the word? HSAs The contribu on limits for 2016 are $3,350 for an  individual and $6,750 for a family plan. An extra $1,000  catch up provision is available for person over the age of  55. Contribu ons are made on a pre‐tax basis.     Distribu ons for HSAs can only be used for  qualified medical expenses. If you take a distribu on that  is not qualified, it is subject to income tax  and a 20% tax penalty. Once you reach  age 65 you no longer have to pay the 20%  penalty, but s ll have to pay income tax  on nonqualified distribu ons, so they are  similar to tradi onal IRAS in that regard.  If you don’t need your savings for medical  costs, they can be used to supplement  your re rement income.    Funds within an HSA can be  invested in a variety of mutual funds  similar to your IRA or 401k account and  they get the advantage of tax deferred  growth, just like an IRA.    Here’s a simple hypothe cal example. Say you’re  35 years old and don’t have access to an employer  sponsored plan, so you use an IRA. Your contribu on limit  on the IRA alone is $5,500 per year, if you maxed that  every year for thirty years and got a 7% return, your  re rement account would grow to $480,406 at age 65. If  you added an HSA and didn’t need the funds for medical  Con nued on page  8

“Walk the Turtle”

Mike Aloia

In God’s eyes, you are a star Consider the moments passed, admire the times we shared laughs, embrace the fears we must face, and realize the cleansing from tears will remove the weight that has held you down upon this to be alive. To see the deep love inside those eyes and hold them close as they cry, empathy is given to the savage mind, thoughts can imprison us or blind our sight, forgive yourself for past mistakes, be real not fake. 

To see beyond the brokenness of a beautiful soul and feel the beat of a wounded heart becomes a blessing to a compassionate spirit, as the sunsets we pray to feel the warmth of a new day sunrise. 

To walk the turtle in the chaos of life is a way to see things in a different light, to kiss the lips of who you love is a remedy from the Lord above, give love to self for who you are, in God’s eyes you are a star.

It seems we tend to run away from the truth inside ourselves sometimes, we seek the knowledge of understanding the reasons why or how we end up in dark places, we find answers in perceptions.

Mike Aloia is a father of two daughters and a proud  grandfather. He is 50 years old and lives in Jacksonville, Florida. Mike is  mul ‐talented: a cartoonist, comedian, musician, songwriter, actor,  columnist, and the CEO of American Hearts Radio, LLC Entertainment  Network. He has experience in web TV, radio entertainment  produc on, ar st management, and other aspects of entertainment.     His column “Walk the Turtle” are his thoughts on slowing  down, taking it easy, and enjoying life. Mike's work can be found in the  following places:   www.americanheartsradio.com    www.facebook.com/americanheartsradio    www.harmonybooking.com

Richard G. Pugh As I approach the prime of  life...sounds like an intro to a popular  old song, doesn’t it? I’m seeing so much change!  That’s what I’m talking about her and I’m finding  some changes today require the willing suspension of  disbelief!    For example, something has changed the size  of my car’s gas tank: it’s ge ng bigger! Not long ago,  my tank would barely hold $25 worth of gas. Today it  can hold $50.00 and not even be full! How is that  possible?    I’m ge ng faster in everything I do these days  also. I can now pump twenty dollars worth of gas in  just a few seconds. It used to take at least ten  minutes. Maybe it’s those new gas pumps, you think?    Yes, and a speed‐reader I’m becoming! I can  read the Reno Gaze e Journal newspaper in less than  three minutes...it used to take me an hour!    Years ago, when cigare es were about a  dollar a pack, it didn’t cost a lot to come down with a  deadly disease. Today, at nearly $5.00 a pack,  contrac ng one of those killer heart and lung diseases  will cost plenty! Smokers might want to consider the  economics of that change.     Stronger I’m ge ng already! I’m picking up  $75.00 worth of groceries with just one hand these  days! Wow!    Those poor underpaid teachers are sure 

Changes driving fancy cars. Now that’s a change!  Remember all those old beaters they used to drive  when we were in school? Check out the teacher  parking area at any school today. How do you  suppose they can buy those expensive SUVs on   such low wages?    Some things haven’t changed, however.  Funerals have always been costly but families  today are shelling out lots more because land has  become so expensive. I recently saw a tombstone  that read, “Here lies a lawyer and an honest man!”  causing me to believe they now are burying two  people in the same grave.     It’s not true...I didn’t really see that last  part.    A er coming to Reno from Charleston, S.C. in  1973 to accept the posi on of CEO of the Nevada  State Medical Associa on and serving as Director of  Physician Rela ons at Washoe Medical Center for  two years, Pugh re red in 1990.     Later he helped establish Health Access  Washoe County (HAWC) and served as Board  Member and President for several years. He has  served as Adjunct Clinical Instructor at the University  of Nevada School of Medicine and authored four  books through the History of Medicine Program  there.

How did you decide on your practice areas? I sort of gravitated to it. When I first started out of law school, I worked for a large firm here in town (Las Vegas), Lionel, Sawyer, and Collins, and I worked there for about a year and realized I didn't want to be a part of a big firm. Then I went to the public defender's office here in Las Vegas and I practiced criminal defense for roughly a year and a half, then left the public defender's office to establish a private practice with my partner Lamond Mills. We built a nine-man law firm and then once it was built, I didn't particularly care for the fact that we were a large law firm, to me at least, so I severed my relationship and went solo. I've actually been a plaintiff's personal injury attorney since 1983. The first nine years of practice, I did criminal defense, I did domestic relations, I did real estate and contract litigation, that type of thing. So I did a little of everything early on.


I happened to call Clarence Collins who was a friend of mine, and asked if would help me in the studio. So we started out recording our first song in very early December of 2008. When and how did you meet music producer Clarence Collins? Clarence came to my office as a client when I was doing all kinds of work. I represented him in connection with an entertainment issue. We established a friendship very early on and he was kind enough to invite us to the shows with the Imperials or CC's Imperials performed. Several Con nued on page  9  

Where did you go to college and law school? I went to college at UNLV. I got a bachelor's in business administration here and then I went away to law school at Arizona State University. When did you graduate? In 1970. I financed my school. I paid my way through college, and I paid my way through law school. I took a year between the end of college when I got my degree before I started law school. Then I accelerated my law school, I went to summer school so I actually got out in two and a half rather than three years, and graduated in 1974. When did you realize you could and wanted to sing? I never thought about it much. I remember early, when I went to church when I was young, people would turn around when I was singing and say, "Oh, you have a beautiful voice," but I never paid too much attention to it. I never practiced it, never took lessons and never really sang much at home, in the shower, or in the car, anything like that. So it was a complete surprise to Linda when she found out that I actually could sing.

times my two kids ended up getting to go backstage and watching the show from backstage. So it was a relationship that started, gosh, I'm thinking probably thirty, thirty-five years ago. What inspires you to choose the songs you record? You know, it's just more what I like to listen to, what I like to hear. I also like things that challenge me and make me do something different. So, in the future when we do recording, we're going to be doing some different things. A little bit of R&B, I did that with "Good Times, Good Times," so we'll do a little bit more of that. We'll do a little bit more rock, just to expand the horizons and figure out what else I can do. What is the process/what steps do you take once you decide on a series of songs? What happens is that we have two very fine arrangers, Willie Wiest is a Broadway arranger out of New Jersey, and Mary Eckler is one of the former lead arrangers for American Idol. She's out of California. Depending on the material, whichever it is, they both have strengths and weaknesses. It starts with usually a demo, which Teddy had sent to Clarence that had never seen the light of day. We take that demo and send it to the arranger. They update and modernize the music so that it's current, then we get the arrangement back and Jim Gilstrap, out of Los Angeles who's a renown back up vocalist, very often contributes backup vocals to the songs, if in fact we use backup vocals.

record. Jim Gilstrap will do his backup vocals remotely at his studio in Los Angeles and send the MP3 to the Studio at the Palms as well. Clarence is my producer and he will go to the studio early before I get there and he will sit down with Rob Katz, who is a sound engineer. Rob is also the sound engineer for Celine Dionne. Rob with Clarence will take that track and perfect it, they adjust all the sounds and if they need to add instruments, they will. Usually by the time I get to the studio things are pretty much in final form from the standpoint of balancing the track and implementing the backup vocals. But everything is not balanced to the extent that they have set the volumes for everything, which is quite a complex process. I go in and I sing the lead vocals to the track as they've prepared it, then after I've sung they will go back and that's when they do the adjustments and all the other things that smooth the song out, so that by the time that they're finished, it's as perfect as we can make it. Generally they start about 9am, I get there around 10am, 10:30am. I'm quick. My vocals are generally done in half an hour or so. Then they will perfect things and by about 3pm, 3:30pm in the afternoon, the song is in what we call final mix form. Con nued on page  11  

It's interesting, it's all done remotely. Mary, for example, will have her musicians do their portion of the track in California.

We then send it to Bernie Grundman Mastering in Los Angeles, and usually within a couple of days we receive the disc of what we call the master. The master is like the queen bee of the hive. All CDs which follow come from the master and that master is then taken over to Digital Insight. By that time, myself and (executive assistant) Corinna Bautista will have sat down and figured out what we want for artwork. They will then put together the artwork that we tell them we want for the particular song, and then they will print it up and finalize it. Then we pick up a bunch of discs which I distribute to all my friends.
