APRIL 2012: MATT VICELJA, Publisher The Easter holiday always brings back fond memories from my childhood. The anticipation of waking up in the morning to find my green plastic basket full of marshmallow chicks, chocolate eggs and jelly beans is forever etched in my mind.

There's lots to enjoy in South Orange County throughout the month of April. Hop on down to one of the many hunts, services and celebrations that take place during Easter weekend. For more information about the holiday happenings in your city, flip to page 26.

LOCAL COVER STORY

san clemente villas by shelley t. hudson

Celebrate the Golden Years in Style Even as San Clemente Villas steams toward its ten-year anniversary this October, owners Paul and Aileen Brazeau show no signs of slowing down. The couple built this bustling retirement community from the ground up in 2002 on property adjacent to Saddleback Memorial Medical Center in hopes of bringing quality living and personalized care to South Orange County seniors. They spared no expense in creating their vision—San Clemente Villas boasts an 85˚ heated pool, fitness center, beauty salon and movie theater among its many amenities. Paul Brazeau still wears his Boston accent, even after 55 years in SoCal, and he’s hung onto his strong work ethic as well. After World War II, Paul made his home here and used his naval training in electrical engineering to start a modest contracting business. After only a few years, he was running one of the largest electrical contracting businesses in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Paul also started dabbling in commercial real estate and found himself caught up in a building boom. Brazeau capitalized on his fortunate timing and built 38 shopping centers in a mere nine years.

Aileen & Paul Brazeau, Owners of San Clemente Villas

Brazeau invested in a continuing care facility for seniors in La Jolla in the early 1990’s and discovered a new passion. This was his first foray into this burgeoning industry and Paul immediately recognized the growth potential. His wife Aileen jumped in with both feet as well, learning everything she could about management and operations. When Hyatt Hotels bought the La Jolla business, the Brazeaus decided to take advantage of their experience and start their own brand of senior care.

RUN BY THE SUN In an effort to stabilize operating costs and to take advantage of handsome government incentives, Paul Brazeau invested $2.5M in a massive installation of solar equipment on the campus of San Clemente Villas. The entire complex runs 30% of the time on solar power when the sun is shining. “We have to keep our costs fixed because our residents have fixed incomes,” he explains, “The electric bill here was $20,000 a month, and I knew it was only going to go up.” San Clemente Villas’ monthly Edison bill has now been cut in half and the use of solar power has effectively reduced the facility’s carbon footprint by 18,000 tons per year. 10 APRIL 2012

thelocaldishmagazine.com

Paul and Aileen learned a valuable business lesson from their years in La Jolla. “Getting older is recession-proof,” states Paul matter-of-factly. After a $14M investment and two and a half years of construction, the Brazeaus opened their three-acre facility to little fanfare, however. Aileen admits, “This business is tough. It’s laborintensive. We had to be fully-staffed when we opened the doors and each employee required an extensive background check.” Despite stringent regulations from the Health Department, Coastal Commission and other agencies, the couple was determined to provide an unprecedented level of services and amenities to its residents without the typical resident buy-in. San Clemente Villas’ 134 units are operated as monthly rentals, much like regular apartments. These units, however, come with three meals

per day in a restaurant-style dining room, a calendar packed with activities and an ocean view. The casual setting and ideal location for easy-access shopping and medical care bring seniors to San Clemente Villas, but the gourmet food, amenities and socialization keep them here. The facility’s medical call system and proximity to emergency care—280 feet to the door of Saddleback Memorial’s ER— give residents and their families peace of mind unmatched by more traditional retirement centers. Activities like water therapy, happy hour, tai chi, movie nights, shuttle service for errands, live music and dancing provide opportunities for fun that might not be available to seniors who stay in the family homestead. The 22-unit Alzheimer’s wing features one-onone 24-hour care, specialized programming, an expansive, secure outdoor recreation area and separate dining room. According to Aileen, 85% of San Clemente Villas’ residents come from within a five-mile radius and they find it easy to stay involved in the community in which they raised their families and maintained their careers. Paul and Aileen run the facility day-to-day and they wouldn’t have it any other way. “These people are our family and we like to see them smile,” says Aileen, “They come here for easy living. We’re very proud of our business.”

Nancy Pellegrino, N.P .

Put your best face forward

For Nancy Pellegrino, N.P., skin care is serious business. As the face behind some of Orange County’s most prominent and most recognizable men and women (including some you may have seen on a certain TV reality series featuring OC housewives), she’s sought out by a loyal following of moms and movers and shakers for her well-honed expertise in aesthetic medicine.

are the essential components.” She adds, “Many patients that I consult with for the first time are unaware of the tools and technology that are now available for skin care issues that were formerly untreatable. Patients who once believed that surgical procedures were the only solution are now thrilled with the alternatives I can offer.”

With Nancy Pellegrino’s 13 plus years of experience as a Nurse Practitioner specializing in skin care treatments and procedures, she’s one of the go-to-gurus in Orange County. Pellegrino has performed over 10,000 injections of Botox® and Juvederm® since 1999 and offers the full spectrum of skin care procedures and products at her practice.

Nancy’s years of experience, advanced education and professional training give her patients a certain peace of mind when sitting in her chair. “It takes more than a medical license and knowledge of facial anatomy to be successful in my field. Injecting Botox®, for example, is a skillful art; the ability to understand optimal placement and appropriate dosage are paramount to achieving a natural look and safe outcome. This type of expertise is only acquired through hands-on experience over an extended period of time,” says Nancy.

Nancy’s results-oriented approach to achieving a natural, more youthful you, starts with the basics - having the best skin possible. She believes strongly that fabulous looking skin is the foundation from which a beautiful face evolves. “I offer my client’s visible results; it’s really that simple. It’s not necessary to overwork skin with an abundance of lotions, potions, scrubs and rubs...selecting the right products for your skin care regimen, a diligent use of sunscreen and addressing the inevitable signs of aging

Nancy is known for implementing a “less is more” philosophy when treating patients. “I strive to deliver consistent, natural results that appear subtle and unnoticeable. I know I’ve done my job well when the outcome makes my client look

well-rested, refreshed and underdone. The best compliment is when others comment on how great a client looks after visiting my office, but they can’t quite pinpoint what’s different,” confides Nancy. Drawing on her experience as a makeup artist for models and actresses in print, commercials and film, Nancy brings an artistic understanding of highlights and shadows that enable her to effectively camouflage or emphasize facial features with fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane®. “My approach merges art and science, which allows me to fight aging with a comprehensive set of tools and a discerning eye,” shares Nancy. Industry professionals have also recognized Nancy as top-notch among her peers. She’s been selected as an A.C.E. speaker and trainer for Allergan, Inc. - the makers of Botox®, Juvederm® and Latisse®. As one of only 32 A.C.E. trainers in the United States, she educates physicians and other medical professionals on technique and use of the company’s products. Additionally, she’s a Medicis, Corp. National Trainer for Restylane®. Nancy also lectures at the UCLA and CSULB Schools of Nursing.

Nancy Pellegrino holds R.N. (Registered Nurse) and N.P. (Nurse Practitioner) certifications. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from CSULB and a Masters in Nursing (MN) from UCLA. Nancy is also a member of the California Association of Nurse Practitioners and The Aesthetic Practice Association.

So What’S the Deal With D?

In addition to preventing osteoporosis, vitamin D is invaluable for many other reasons. Here are three recently discovered benefits of vitamin D. 1. Vitamin D may play a role in the prevention of cancer. Studies have recently demonstrated that consistently vitamin D and several of its analogues decrease intestinal tumor cell growth in animal models. New large-scale trials are underway to clarify the role of vitamin D in the prevention of various other cancers as well.

2. Vitamin D helps improve type 2 diabetes. Vitamin D has been shown to prevent increases in blood sugar concentration and insulin resistance, it enhances insulin sensitivity, and has also been shown to reduce systolic blood pressure in type 2 diabetic patients. 3. Low vitamin D levels are associated with obesity. A Norwegian study involving more than 25,000 adults showed that not only were lower serum Vitamin D levels associated with a higher prevalence of obesity, they were specifically linked with the development of obesity. Vitamin D is readily available in supplement form and well-tolerated. Not sure if you are deficient in vitamin D? A simple blood test is all it takes to determine your vitamin D level. — Monica Harms, MD

EAS T E R FUN Just when you’ve finally pulled the last remnants of plastic grass from your carpet and worked off last year’s Peeps, Easter comes hippity-hopping down the bunny trail all over again. This year, treat your entire family to good, sweet fun throughout South Orange County at these holiday events. by Shelley t. hudson

Dana Point

The City of Dana Point’s Egg Hunts are jelly bean-packed with activities—and free! The simultaneous celebrations start at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 7th at Pines Park (34941 Camino Capistrano) and Sea Canyon Park (33101 Trinidad Drive). Kids ten and younger are welcome to enjoy the petting zoos, games and visits with Mr. Cottontail himself. The egg hunts start at 10:00 a.m. sharp, so bring baskets to gather your loot and cameras to capture the fun. If you’re an early riser, join parishioners of Coast Bible Church at Lantern Bay Park Amphitheater (25111 Park Lantern Road) for Sunrise Service on Sunday, April 8th at 6:30 a.m. An uplifting message and live music will inspire and entertain.

Laguna Beach

The American Legion continues its 50-plus-year tradition with the popular Annual Easter Egg Hunt. Kids nine years and younger are invited to bring empty baskets and participate in free activities. The festivities start at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 8th at Laguna Beach High’s baseball field (625 Park Avenue), but you can arrive early to pose with the Easter Bunny.

Laguna Niguel

Laguna Niguel Parks & Rec is sponsoring its annual Bunny Blast on Saturday, April 7th from 9:00 a.m. till 12:30 p.m. at Chapparosa Park (25191 Chapparosa Park Road). Kidsized fun includes face painting, pony rides, a bounce house, shows, a petting zoo and crafts. Remember to bring cash for snacks and entry; admission is $7 for ages 3 – 12 and $1 for ages 13 and up. Please leave your pets at home and call the hotline for updates in the event of rain—949.425.5100.

San Clemente

The Springtacular is one of San Clemente’s signature events. Starting with a pancake breakfast (for a nominal fee) hosted by the Kiwanis Club at 7:30 a.m. and culminating with a Great Big Egg Hunt at 11:00 a.m. for newborns through age ten, this free festival is a can’t-miss. The party will be held at Vista Hermosa Sports Park (987 Avenida Vista Hermosa) on Saturday, April 7th. Roaming entertainers, games and Easter Bunny visits will surprise and delight the young ones. Yummy snacks will be available for purchase. For more information, contact the Recreation Division at 949.361.8264. The City of San Clemente has teamed with Family Assistance Ministries once again for the Community Easter Brunch at Our Lady of Fatima (105 N. La Esperanza) on Saturday, April 7th at 10:00 a.m. This event provides a wonderful opportunity to enjoy fellowship with needy individuals and families in our community. Stop by FAM at 929 Calle Negocio to pick up an invitation for someone who could use a helping hand (walk-ups also accepted). Volunteers and donations are welcome. For information, call 949.492.8477. Talega Village Center and Radio Disney will host an Easter party from noon until 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 1st. The Radio Disney Road Crew will lead bunny dances and contests and an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt right in front of Spoon Deep Yogurt. The Easter Bunny also will be on hand for photos and fuzzy little hugs.

San Juan Capistrano

The Rotary Club’s annual Easter Eggstravaganza is always a hopping good time. This community tradition will take place on Saturday, April 7th from 9:00 a.m. till noon at Historic Town Center Park (31852 El Camino Road). Children 11 and younger can play games, decorate eggs, bounce around and have their faces painted. The Fuzzy One will pass out free hugs and smiles. Calvary Chapel’s Easter in the Park is a long-running event that attracts a great number of local families. A spiritual service at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 8th will be followed by a massive barbeque, live music and an Easter egg hunt. Everyone is welcome—don’t forget your chairs and blankets so you can relax and enjoy the celebration. 26 APRIL 2012

L O C A L theatre

th APRILou24 thr gh MAY 20th

by Anthony Small

Award-winning comedian Rita Rudner will return to her theatrical roots by joining the cast of The Laguna Playhouse’s production of Tickled Pink, making its world premiere on April 24th and running through May 20th. Written by Rudner and her longtime creative partner and husband, Martin Bergman, Tickled Pink is the stage adaptation of Rudner’s 2002 best-selling novel of the same name. Bergman, who has a thirty year track record of producing, writing and directing for stage, TV, and film, will direct the play. Rudner quips tongue-in-cheek, “I’m so looking forward to acting in a play again. It’s been a long time since I’ve been paid such little money.” Tickled Pink tracks the journey of a youthfully spirited and Broadway bound Mindy Solomon who moves from Florida to New York dreaming of a dancing career. Unexpected events force her to rethink her grand plan. After hanging out night after night in a comedy club where her boyfriend was working, Mindy gathered up enough nerve to take the stage herself. When she gets her first laugh from the audience, she is immediately hooked. Rudner elaborated, “The play is about becoming a comedian, female friendships and is a celebration of the 80’s and there are no bad words! When the novel was written, it was like a different planet. No internet, no Facebook...and no Kardashians.”

The Laguna Playhouse 34 APRIL 2012

Rudner and Bergman have been married for 23 years and met 25 years ago when she was cast in a play he was producing. “He hired me, he paid me, I married him. Go figure, I slept with the producer after I already got the job! I do love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life,” says Rudner. They have written several screenplays together, including Peter’s Friends, in which Rudner also acted, and a play called Room 776 that premiered in Las Vegas in 2008. Rudner is also the author of the best-selling I Still Have It...I Just Can’t Remember Where I Put It: Confessions of a Fiftysomething and Naked Beneath My Clothes. She’s also written two fiction novels: Tickled Pink and Turning The Tables. This will be Rudner’s third artistic endeavor with The Laguna Playhouse which was founded in 1920 and is celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2011-2012. Rudner has previously done stand up at the theatre the last two summers. Rudner shares, “It is the perfect little theatre and usually has only three or four characters on stage. This is quite an ambitious production for that theatre. Our cast has thirteen people...and most play three parts! I play three parts for which I am appropriately cast: an overbearing mother, an over the hill dancer and a lady whose not too bright.”

Karen Wood, The Laguna Playhouse’s Executive Director, says, “We are extremely fortunate to call Rita and Martin neighbors and creative collaborators. They are delightful and savvy professionals and we couldn’t be more thrilled to offer their world class talent to the Orange County community.” Since 2000, Rudner has sold over one million tickets to her Las Vegas performances and in 2011 moved to her own theatre at The Venetian. “I feel fortunate because I’m not a natural fit for Las Vegas. I’m quiet, remained clothed onstage and don’t drink, smoke or swear,” remarks Rudner. She was recognized with the Gracie Allen Award from the American Women in Television for her syndicated improvisational comedy, Ask Rita, and in May 2009 performed for President Obama at Caesars Palace along with Bette Midler and Sheryl Crow. PBS will air Rita Rudner: Live From Las Vegas on May 31st at 7 p.m. locally on KOCE. For more information on TV airdates, her Las Vegas show and other performances, visit her hilarious website at www.RitaFunny.com. Tickets for Tickled Pink are on sale now! For more information about showtimes and to purchase tickets, go to www.LagunaPlayhouse.com or call 949.497.ARTS (2787).
