S. PAUL MUSCO RECEIVES ELLIS ISLAND MEDAL OF HONOR ANTARCTICA, A GRAND ADVENTURE!


Lifestyle Letter

Ode to Men!

ather's Day is celebrated Sunday, June 18th this year, and we are pleased to feature Newport Beach Police Chief Jon T. Lewis and his family on our cover. Lewis is a loving husband to his wife Darcy and a dedicated dad to their children Claire and JT. Declaring his family as "the most important thing in my life," Lewis carries out his belief with family time (especially at the beach) and supporting the kids' sports activities. His other "family," the men and women of the Newport Beach Police Department, also receive his unflagging support. As Lewis says, "There is not a day I come to work that I don't feel blessed for the opportunity to do this."

Another gentleman in our community who is featured this month is S. Paul Musco, who was presented the prestigious Ellis Island Medal of Honor in a ceremony held at the Westin South Coast Plaza. National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations (NECO) has presented 100  natural-born and naturalized citizens the honor at Ellis Island since 1986.  This year marked the sixth time the medal has been awarded outside of Ellis Island. The spirit of the honor states that the honoree shall "share with those less fortunate than themselves and maintain traditions of their ethnic heritage while upholding the ideals and spirit of America." I can't think of another person who exemplifies that mantra better than Paul Musco. Another gentleman, although a Los Angeles import, has deep roots in Orange County. World-renowned opera star and General Director of Los Angeles Opera, Plácido Domingo, is a longtime devotee of Chapman University. Because of that dedication, he returned to the university to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Musco Center for the Arts, where he performed at the grand opening a year ago. Domingo was presented an Honorary Doctor of Arts at the celebration, as well as a bronze bust created in his honor.  Two Newport Beach businessmen deserve a mention. Dr. Peter T. Smrecek, who has been practicing dentistry in the area for nearly 40 years, has  a sterling reputation, and, restaurateur Giuseppe Accardo just opened his Italian eatery, Mr. G's, on Balboa Island to rave reviews. If you're looking to impress the man in your life on Father's Day, take a look at the recipe for "Fired Up Burgers" on page 38. You'll love the choice of toppings! And, don't miss our community's Summer Happenings in Parting Thoughts on page 50.

Antarctica is still a place that is being explored and discovered. During a National Geographic expedition, it feels like the ship has sailed to far away places, which is has, but when one looks on a map, it’s mind-blowing to fathom that the ship only touched a tiny spec of the actual continent. The expedition provides opportunities to learn, to grow and to reflect. The photographs you will share with your friends will impress them, but only you will know what it felt like at the moment you were snapping that photo. It might sound cliché to say that this experience will be life-changing, but that’s exactly what it will be, and the only downfall to the trip will be that your heart and soul will crave a return to the white continent, a place that only a few in this world full of billions have seen with their own eyes.

Since 1986, the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations (NECO) has presented Ellis Island Medals of Honor every year to 100 natural-born and naturalized citizens who share with those less fortunate than themselves and maintain traditions of their ethnic heritage while upholding the ideals and spirit of America. The NECO ceremony is held each May at Ellis Island, but in this instance, the induction took place in Orange County with a dinner and ceremony at the Westin South Coast Plaza, marking the sixth time the medal has been awarded outside of Ellis Island. The dinner program, emceed by 2014 Medalist Gaddi Vasquez, opened with a Marine Corps Color Guard, tenor Orson Van Gay singing the National Anthem, an invocation by Abbott Eugene Hayes of St. Michael’s Abbey, and the Pledge of Allegiance, led by former U.S. Treasurer and 2016 Medalist Rosario Marin.

The multifaceted artist, recognized as one of the finest singing actors in the history of opera as well as for his expertise as conductor and accomplished opera administrator in his role as the Eli and Edyth Broad General Director of LA Opera, was touched by the university’s presentation of a bronze bust in his honor. Chapman’s signature busts, scattered throughout the campus, recognize poets, U.S. Presidents, singers and statesmen. Domingo’s bust, created by sculptor Juan Rosillo, was a gift from Robert A.

FIRED UP BURGERS!

ARTICLE SUZETTE ZARA PHOTOGRAPHY JOY REYNOLDS

R

ising June temperatures create the perfect excuse to fire up the grill. Every cookout needs a great burger, and these juicy

masterpieces, stuffed with cheese and peppers, will earn rave reviews! Of course, many people argue that the burger is only as good as its toppings. Since June is recognized as California Avocado Month and National Papaya Month, these two favorite fruits can be used to create creamy Avocado Salsa Verde and Spicy Papaya Mango Salsa-the perfect burger toppings!

GRILLED STUFFED CHEDDAR BURGERS These delicious burgers pack a flavor surprise: a creamy cheesy center! To further cut calories, replace ground beef with ground turkey, but add a shredded carrot to give the turkey added moisture. Top with your favorite condiments, and, of course, a generous portion of the salsas below! INGREDIENTS

1½ pounds ground beef or ground turkey 1 small red onion, chopped 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 1 teaspoon salt 2 jalapeno peppers, diced 8 slices reduced-fat sharp cheddar (or pepper jack) cheese 4 large onion buns or rolls Condiments (as desired) DIRECTIONS

Preheat grill to medium-high. In a large bowl, stir together beef, onion, mustard, salt and peppers. Divide mixture into 8 equal sized balls; flatten into patties. Place 2 slices of cheese on 4 of the patties; cover each with another patty, to enclose cheese. Pinch edges to seal. Grill to desired temperature, roughly 2-4 minutes per side. Toast buns on grill. Top with salsa and preferred condiments. Yield: 4 burgers; Calories (each):265; Fat: 7g; Cost Per Serving: $1.59.

AVOCADO SALSA VERDE This creamy salsa gets its flavor and lovely green hue from a combination of avocados and tomatillos. While many people are inclined to call the avocado a vegetable, it is technically a fruit, and a very healthy fruit–packed with protein (4g each) and more potassium than a banana. INGREDIENTS

2 large avocados 2 large jalapeno peppers (more to taste) 6 medium tomatillos 1 small onion ¼ cup cilantro 1 clove garlic DIRECTIONS

Peel the rough outer skin off the tomatillos; rinse thoroughly. Roast tomatillos over hot grill or in oven (10-15 minutes), until vibrant dark green. Place roasted tomatillos and remaining ingredients in blender; pulse until well-combined but still chunky. Add additional jalapenos to desired heat level. Serve as a dip for chips or as a burger topping. Yield: 3 cups; Calories (per quarter cup): 45; Cost Per Serving: $.55

F E AR OF VENEERS? YOU HAVE THE BUDGET, TIME AND INTEREST–SO WHAT'S HOLDING YOU BACK FROM GETTING THAT TRANSFORMATIVE SMILE YOU'VE ALWAYS WANTED. ARTICLE MELANIE LIPSIE

E

nhancing a smile with the application of veneers is an exciting dental treatment for those unhappy with the

condition of their teeth. Whether for cosmetic or health reasons, deciding to get veneers is a process that requires careful research and trust in your chosen cosmetic dentist. "Some patients, though desiring it, are reluctant to make the change," says Peter T. Smrecek, Jr., D.D.S. "These patients have hesitations about altering their smile due to fear of the unknown, fear of regret, fear of looking drastically different from their previous selves." In business for nearly 40 years, Newport Beach-based Dr. Smrecek has vast professional experience in the veneer process. Utilizing a mixture of artistry and science, he has created a systematic, multi-stemmed process that relieves patients' worries about their smile outcome. Further, Dr. Smrecek points out, "There are no surprises. I work with my patients on every detail of change they want and assure that they are confident through the entire process. We don't fast track the procedure Peter T. Smrecek, Jr., D.D.S/ Photo: Tony Lattimore
