MISSION VIEJO PONY BASEBALL 8U TEAM WINS WORLD SERIES The Mission Viejo Pony Baseball 8U All-Star team has been competing in the PONY International All-Star competition since mid June. The team was selected the first week of May and played in close to 40 games in the past two months. The 8U team competed in several non-sanctioned warm-up tournaments, winning all five of them, before the Pony sanctioned tournaments began on June 21st. In Pony sanctioned play, Mission Viejo defeated all teams they faced and progressed to the Super Regional championships where they faced sixteen of the strongest teams in all of Southern California to determine who would represent Southern California in the Pony World Series. At the Super Regionals, the 8U team beat Camarillo, Los Alamitos and Indio before facing a very strong Fountain Valley team in the finals on Sunday, July 15th. Mission Viejo prevailed in the end with a 2 – 0 victory over Fountain Valley which earned both teams a spot in the PONY Baseball World Series tournament, to be held over the June 19th – 22nd weekend in San Jose, California. In only the second year of existence, nobody from the Mission Viejo team believed that a small start-up league would earn a place at the Pony World Series, but on July 15th, that dream came true. The next day, the parents and coaches recovered from the victory celebration and put a plan in play to travel to San Jose, California. And just two days later, the team caravanned up to San Jose in SUV’s and Mini-Vans. The Pony World Series competition began on Thursday evening with eight teams from as far away as Hilo, Hawaii. Mission Viejo won its first

game over Vacaville by a score of 11 – 0, then beat Blossom Valley by a score of 12 – 1 on Friday night. On Saturday, Mission Viejo faced off with Vacaville again in a game that would result in elimination for Vacaville, Mission Viejo winning by a score of 4 – 2. The third win in a row clinched the bracket for Mission Viejo, who would face the winner of the other bracket, which turned out to be the other Southern California representative, Fountain Valley. In earlier tournament competition, Mission Viejo had a 1 – 1 record with Fountain Valley and the players knew the World Series championship game would be a battle to the end. On Sunday, July 22nd at the PAL Sports Facility in San Jose, that battle took place with both teams giving it all they had. In the end, Mission Viejo defeated Fountain Valley by a score of 1 – 0, earning the crown of World Series Champions. Mission Viejo Pony Manager Jimmy Tyler said, “We did it for the name across our chests – Mission Viejo Pony.” Tyler, a long-time resident of Mission Viejo and very involved in the youth sports community was overcome with emotion. League President Rob Frias explains, “These boys worked very hard to get here and played almost forty games during the All-Star season alone. It was our dream to win the World Series and I knew we had the talent to do it, but when you put all the factors into play, I have to be honest in saying that I thought the odds were against a small start-up league who is still working

on getting a permanent home park.” After winning the World Series championships, the coaches and league president took the boys to celebrate at Dave and Busters, who furnished the kids with “Unlimited” video playing cards for the night. The Mission Viejo Pony World Series team will be honored at Anaheim stadium on September 8th and also at the next City of Mission Viejo council meeting in September. The team is coached by manager Jimmy Tyler, coaches Terry Reichert, Steve Dietsch and CJ Snow. Players on the team are Jake Tyler, William Reichert, Cole Dietsch, Conner Dietsch, Hunter Snow, William Burns, Tyler Damato, Hunter Sablatura, Reggie Demetre and Chase Christner (Austin Blanco and Alex Weinzimer – members of the team but not present at the World Series). League President and General Manager of the team is Rob Frias. All updated All-Star information and results will be posted on the league website at www.MissionViejoPony.org.

Local Dentist Michael Tessier Reveals Affordable Ways of Paying for Dental Care I think we all grew up thinking that medical or dental insurance was there for our benefit, like they were taking care of us. However, insurance is a product to make stockholders money. Although there’s nothing wrong with people wanting to make money in the market, that’s the main focus of that industry, not taking care of us (the insured). Even before the current attempt by the federal government to force us into government-run socialized medicine (run by the same people who operate Medicare, social security, and the post-office), all of us had become aware of the truth about insurance, as “covered benefits” decreased and “co-pays” increased. So, it is a real pleasant surprise for me to be able to report that Delta Dental of Illinois has announced their Enhanced Benefits Program offering “enhanced benefits for those with high-risk medical conditions”. Systemic diseases like diabetes, pregnancy, cardio-vascular conditions, renal disorders, cancer-related chemo- or radiation therapy, or suppressed immune systems have correlations with oral conditions. Delta/ Illinois is now taking these conditions into account, and paying more liberally for dental care than they used to. Pat and Donna at my front desk have between them fifty-plus years in the dental field, and will be able to answer any questions you might have. Please don’t hesitate to call them. When you call, please be sure to ask them about “Care Credit”, a credit card offering up to twelve months of interest-free credit on dental work. I like this because there are no premiums involved that have to be paid on a monthly basis, whether any dental work is required or not. Dr. Michael Tessier is located in Los Flores Plaza at 28562 Oso Parkway. Most major credit cards and dental plans cheerfully accepted telephone (949)459-7212

Ladera Ranch News is an independent weekly newspaper published every Friday. We are not owned or operated by any of the big daily newspapers. The views and opinions expressed are those of the publisher and not any organization. No reproduction, in whole or in part is permitted without the express written permission of Ladera Ranch News. Legal Advertising: The Ladera Ranch News was adjudicated by the Orange County Superior Court as a newspaper of general circulation pursuant to Government Code 6000 case #A227454 on December 30, 2004 and as such is the appropriate newspaper to place legal and public notices for the South Orange County Judicial District and the community of Ladera Ranch..

By Caroline Pohl, Staff Reporter With an overwhelming turnout of six hundred people, the Los Rios Rock School has mastered a great feat in selling out South Orange County’s largest rock venue in San Juan Capistrano, the Coach House. Over sixty students of the Los Rios Rock School performed in a three hour set, delivering their own individually chosen rock melodies. After opening its doors at 5:30, The Coach House was host to the students as well as the bands The In Between, Shoot Up the Cat, and The Christian Hernandez Rotation. It was well past midnight when the show finally came to an end on July 27 to the loud applause and cheers of many attendees. The proceeds of the show will help fund the expansion of Los Rios Rock School, a music school in San Juan Capistrano which has grown to accommodate more than seventy students in the community. The school began in 2007 when owner Tyler Marolf first started tutoring students out of his Los Rios home. Five years later, after a growing demand from students, the Los Rios Rock School announced its grand opening in January of this year. Since then, the 3000 square foot state-of-the-art facility has provided a professional music approach for dozens of students. The additional 1500 square feet expansion will provide two more live rooms, allowing Marolf to open up the waiting list. Behind the curtain, Marolf works with two other music teachers, Christian Hernandez and Spencer Askin, to produce an environment in which

“every child has a voice.” According to Marolf, Los Rios Rock School is different in that it teaches students to respect music, as well as each other. Students discover not only how to play the instruments, but how to work together in a performance setting. Through hourly sessions, Saturday rehearsals, and annual shows, Marolf encourages his students to develop a healthy work ethic and a sense of their own individuality. Marolf’s love for music and success with the Los Rios Rock School led him in February to establish Love & Service, Inc., a non-profit organization designed to allow children to

develop a close relationship with the arts. Through this organization, children with autism will be able to work one-on-one with music professionals in a safe environment, giving these children a learning experience tailored to meet their own needs. Love & Service, Inc. is the first of its kind in Orange County, and is seeking to raise money to buy instruments for their students. Persons wishing to donate may contact Los Rios Rock School at (949) 456-1081 or visit at 32124 Paseo Adelanto #5, San Juan Capistrano, California.

I’ve always thought a hotel ought to offer optional small animals. I mean a cat to sleep on your bed at night, or a dog of some kind to act pleased when you come in. -Will Rogers The Ladera Ranch News

Mission Viejo’s Own JILL MORRISON Stars in “Memphis”

Visitors attending the at the fabulous Pantages theater in Los Angeles will recognize a familiar face on stage. It’s Our very own Jill Morrison from Mission Viejo California! Memphis is playing at the Pantages in Los Angeles from now through August 12. This traveling production will be back here in Orange County in November as well. Jill Morrison grew up in Mission Viejo and the Canyon Crest neighborhood where she spent many childhood days swimming and barbecuing at lake Mission Viejo .Jill and her friends learned to dance at Saddleback Dance Center and performed in many dance competitions and recitals . Later she attended Capistrano Valley high school where she participated in drama, choir, cheerleading, student government and musical theater . Drama instructors Joe Slevcove and Cheryl Constantino gave Jill her first encouragement in the dramatic arts. Jill first performed a musical called Page 6

“ Guys and Dolls “plus “The Music Man,” and “The Boyfriend”, and in the role of Maisie along with various school plays at Capistrano Valley high school she won the award for “most likely to make it to Broadway “in her senior year of high school. Her classmates might be surprised to learn how an correct their predictions were. While she attended the University of Arizona in Tucson and earned two degrees in dance and media arts plus instructed dance classes at a local dance studio while she was attending college. She then returned to her roots in Southern California and began a performance in the musical “ a Chorus Line” where, she became hooked on musical theater and decided to pursue it as her career performing various musicals in Southern California including “Little Shop of Horrors” , “a Chorus Line, Gypsy”, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” The Sound of Music, and “No, No, Nanette.”

The Ladera Ranch News

Jill is a frequent performer at major venues including the Hollywood bowl, Universal Studios, Disneyland, the Carpenter Center, the Queen Mary, La Jolla Playhouse and many other theaters. She has toured the country with the national tour of “Happy Days” and also with the currently successful “Memphis” playing the best venues across the nation including the Kennedy center in Washington, DC which is one of her favorites and the brand new Smith Center in Las Vegas . She auditioned for the first workshop production of Memphis on a whim and did not know much about the show when it played at the La Jolla playhouse in San Diego in 2008. The creative team of Memphis asked her to perform in a second regional workshop production of Memphis at the fifth avenue theatre in Seattle in 2009 and thereafter made her Broadway debut with the Memphis cast in 2010 at the Shubert theatre in New York . Shortly

thereafter Jill received a phone call asking her if she would go on the first national tour of Memphis and she was thrilled ! Jill Morrison is the only performer in the company to have performed in all four productions of Memphis to date. She plays many small roles in this production and is mostly a teenager throughout but plays some adult rules as well. Her most memorable moments in this show are the big dance number radio were she does the double Dutch jump rope and sings into the telephone while calling into a radio station in “That’s Not Possible .” Jill has been performing in the musical productions of Memphis since 2008 and is still performing in the show every day. She says “I love what I do and feel so fortunate to perform in musicals for a living. I’m even happier to be able to share the show with all of Southern California where I grew up -especially my friends in Mission Viejo “

Coto’s Igarashi Family Takes Pride In Daughter’s New Business Tracy “Sayuki” Wells Opens Sayuki Custom Cosmetics At Laguna Hills Mall

Larry Igarashi (rt) explains their unique color scanner to Matt Hanrahan

LUXURY MEETS TECHNOLOGY. Sayuki Custom Cosmetics brings to the marketplace an innovative, original and completely unique concept. Here you will be able to purchase cosmetic products that match your skin color precisely. The High Definition Color Scanner (a specialty machine created by Sayuki) analyzes the skin pigment along the jawline and transmits the information to the custom color blending dispensing machine. The machine then creates a custom combination of pigment colors for foundation concealer or tinted moisturizer that will be unique for each customer and precisely match their skin. Others have tried to offer custom colored cosmetics, but no other company has utilized technology to do so. The blending and dispensing machine is a truly innovative and revolutionary concept in the cosmetic industry and will change the way people buy their make-up. Page 12

“I have worked in the cosmetic industry for more than 15 years and the biggest hurdle women face is finding cosmetic that truly match their skin tone,” says Tracy “Sayuki” Wells, FIDM Graduate and Founder and President of Sayuki Custom Cosmetics. “I am so thrilled to have created a product that I know women want and need. No longer do you have to worry about finding products that match your skin color – that is what we do! It is amazing and you have to see the machine in action to believe it.” Tracy is the daughter of Pat and Larry Igarashi of Coto de Caza FIDM Alumni Relations Manager, Bill Cliatt says, “Sayuki Custom Cosmetics is a truly unique and innovative concept. We are so proud that Tracy has combined her entrepreneurial spirit and extensive cosmetic background to create such an amazing product.”

The Ladera Ranch News

Sayuki Custom Cosmetics has created a unique Seven Step Beautification Plan for flawless skin using the highest quality products that are customized with the Spectrophotometer and Dispensing Machine to create unique colors for each customer. On July 26, a preview party was attended by family, friends and members of the press. Attendees were offered a sumptious feast of canapes, sushi and yummy gift wrapped cookies. Makeup artists were at the ready to offer guests a full demonstration of the color matching machine. A quick scan of your jaw area yielded the necessary data to transmit to the mixing machine. Within minutes, the perfect color match was calculated and mixed into a one of a kind personalized makeup. “I have boxes of makeup that looked good in the store but didn’t work for me when I got it home. No more! Not only did the makeup achieve a perfect match but the quality of the product is ex-

ceptional,” commented Ruth White, editor of The Coto de Caza News. Once you have your match, it is entered into the computer and you are given a card with your data on it. In the future, your custom match is just a quick phone call away. Talented makeup artists are also available for that perfect application and also may be scheduled for special events. The store itself features a modern design with a color palette that reflects Sayuki’s signature packaging with black walls and pink accents – the sophisticated setting is the perfect backdrop for cosmetics shopping. Sayuki Custom Cosmetics is a unique experience that has to be enjoyed firsthand to believe. For more information about Sayuki Custom Cosmetics and products please visit www.SayukiCustomCosmetics.com.
