THE ROOTS OF RODEO By Anthony R. “Tony” Moiso President and CEO, Rancho Mission Viejo The roots of rodeo reflect the legacies of the land our family and I have been blessed to own and manage since 1882. Dating back to the Spanish and Mexican period of California history and then to the early 1800’s when Don Pio Pico, the last Mexican Governor of California and his family owned this land, there have been rodeos for as long as there have been cattle and “vaqueros” (or cowboys)here in south Orange County. In the days of the great ranchos, during the annual Spring roundups and brandings, the “vaqueros” had the opportunity to display their considerable horsemanship skills. In fact, the word “rodeo” was traditionally pronounced “ro-day-oh” and comes from the Spanish word rodear, which means “to surround.” After branding the cattle, often there would be time for competition during which the “vaqueros” demonstrated their riding and roping skills. Following the Civil War, when cattle herds began to spread out throughout the West, American cowboys found themselves working alongside the great “vaqueros” and learning their skills. Over time, the large stockyards, which dotted the west, became a place where cowboys would challenge each other to see who was the best. However, as time marched on and railroad stock cars replaced cattle drives, the demand for cowboy labor declined; and shrinking wages were supplemented through stock shows (sometimes called rodeos). Soon, showmen such as “Buffalo Bill” Cody organized elaborate shows and rodeos which reenacted the great stories of the “Wild West.” In 1936, cowboy leadership began to organize. Ultimately, the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association(PRCA) was established to standardize rodeos and to establish and to enforce rules and regulations for the protection of rights and safety of both the cowboys and the animals. Today, from small towns across our nation all the way to the December national championship (The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo) in Las Vegas, there are more than 600 PRCA rodeos. With more than 170,000 fans attending the National Finals and approximately 13 million viewers watching on ESPN, rodeo is now more popular and competitive than ever. In 2001, my uncle, Dick O’Neill, Gilbert Aguirre, my family, and I decided to sponsor and to stage a PRCA-sanctioned rodeo on our land to perpetuate the tradition of rodeo here in urban south Orange County — and to pay tribute to the sport, to the

heritage of the land, and to raise funds for local charities such as the Camino Health Center, the Shea Therapeutic Riding Center, and the R.H. Dana Exceptional Needs Center (part of the Capistrano Unified School District). This year, as we celebrate our10th anniversary as hosts, we are proud to announce that our Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo will have distributed more than $1 million dollars to these charities. Raising funds for charities at the rodeo continues the ranching tradition of passing the hat for charitable needs. We also are very proud to share that the Annual Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo is America’s Richest Two-Day Rodeo. As champion cowboys from across the nation compete for a purse totaling more than $200,000, the top thirty money winners (as of early August) in each rodeo event* will strive to win their share of the purse. As the cowboys race to qualify for The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo — only the top fifteen at season’s end will make it — the “big payday” afforded this weekend just might make someone’s dream of participating in the “NFR” come true. As you look around the stands and cheer on your favorite cowboy, bucking horse, or bull, please recognize all the hard work dedicated to making our Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo such a great success. Our Rodeo is completely planned and executed by a very small group of volunteers, led by Gilbert Aguirre. My family and I are proud to host this event, and we are forever grateful to the members of the Rodeo Committee for their continued commitment to “making it happen.” So, welcome to the Annual Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo, to the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park at San Juan Capistrano, to Rancho Mission Viejo, and to a weekend of “Good Times”!

Shea Center Ranked at “Premier Level” with International Therapeutic Accreditation There is no higher ranking than the 100% rating given to San Juan Capistrano’s J. F. Shea Therapeutic Riding Center on July 26, 2012. The therapeutic riding industry’s accrediting organization, Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH Intl), awarded the 33-year old Shea Center its highest level of recognition for excellence in over 90 measured operating standards. These include administration, program services, facilities and equine welfare. This “Premier Level” ranking makes The Shea Center one of the top therapeutic riding centers in the world. PATH Intl’s ranking process is ongoing within an industry of nearly 800 therapeutic riding centers in the U.S. Of those, less than 200 elect to go through this rigorous accreditation process. At the premier level, The Shea Center must be ready for inspection every 5 years, when PATH Intl-approved professionals arrive for a daylong on-site inspection. The Shea Center operates in compliance with PATH Intl standards on a year-round basis, but as Shea Center Executive Director Dana

Butler-Moburg notes, “this rigorous inspection is a way for us to do an internal check up on our own policies and procedures.” She adds, “Safety is our first and most important concern, followed by quality and consistency in the services we deliver.” The Shea Center is dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities through therapeutic horse-related programs. More than 530 clients in 2011 received services that include physical, occupational and speech therapy using equinerelated programs. Shea programs and all medical services are examined as part of the accreditation review process. Preparing for the PATH Intl inspection was an 8-month process and included volunteer training and staff review of internal procedures and policies. During the inspection, the accreditation visitors interviewed many of the management staff, so everyone had to be fully prepared. After the premier level ranking was announced, Shea Center Board Chair, Marcia Jager said, “I’m proud of the staff and volunteers. This one day in July affirms what we do

all year long to provide safe, highquality therapeutic equestrian services to people with special needs.” Butler-Moburg added, “While this is a staff-driven project, it took the extraordinary leadership of one of our senior staff members, Dana Ludutsky-Green, to ensure that we were successful in our site review. For us, this is comparable to the joint accreditation hospitals go through. It’s extensive, it’s thorough and it also keeps us sharp.” The Shea Center is a privately funded 501(c)(3) non-profit organiza-

tion serving over 500 clients a year. It addresses over 60 diagnoses, including autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, developmental delay and other physical and cognitive disabilities. It has the largest stand-alone budget of any therapeutic equestrian facility in the U.S. More than 74 cents of every dollar given to The Shea Center goes directly to therapeutic program services.

Newport 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 Newport News. Legal Advertising: The Newport News was adjudicated by the Orange County Superior Court as a newspaper of general circulation pursuant to Government Code 6000 case #A187752 on July 15, 1997 and as such is the appropriate newspaper to place legal and public notices for the South Orange County Judicial District including Balboa, Newport Coast, Corona del Mar and the City of Newport Beach, California.

The California Coastal Commission (Commission) has approved a Coastal Development Permit for the proposed Sunset Ridge Park, thus allowing the City of Newport Beach (City) to build a much-needed, public park with ball fields in West Newport. Newport Beach Mayor Nancy Gardner said, “We are ecstatic over the news and are grateful for t h e Co m m i s sion’s approval. The project will take a vacant, barely accessible piece of land and create a park with places for kids to play sports and places for people of all ages to relax and look out onto the Pacific Ocean.” The 13.7-acre project site is located at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Superior Avenue. The Sunset Ridge Park plans include a baseball diamond that overlaps in area with two soccer fields, a children’s playground, a grass warm-up field, pedestrian paths around the perimeter of the park, view areas, a shade structure, and a restroom/storage facility.

“The City purchased the property from Caltrans in 2006 and we began planning and designing the park in 2008,” explained Council Member Steve Rosansky, whose district includes the site of the future park. “We held a series of public meetings and heard what West Newport residents, parents, local youth sports coaches, and other interested citizens wanted in the park. We believe the plan balances those needs. I am very happy that the years of planning are over and our vision will become a real, muchloved park.” The construction start date is yet to be determined and construction

cost estimates are subject to final design work and bidding. Coastal Development Permits generally have a two-year window to start construction. City Manager Dave Kiff said, “This has been a long and challenging process for both the City and the Commission and we are grateful that our good project was ultimately approved. The Commission has approved two of our projects this summer - Marina Park back in June and now Sunset Ridge Park. The summer of 2012 will be one to remember for us. Two major projects before the Commission and two successes.”

Jane Monheit & John Pizzarelli Quartet Open Segerstrom Center’s 2012 – 2013 Cabaret Series Jane Monheit and John Pizzarelli, two of today’s most intoxicating vocalists, will join forces for an unforgettable evening of the Great American Songbook on October 5 to kick off the Segerstrom Center for the Arts 2012-2013 Cabaret Series. Both artists bring finesse to their interpretations of classic standards, making each song fresh, unique and deeply personal. Tickets for Jane Monheit and John Pizzarelli Quartet start at $26 and will go on sale Sunday, August 26 at 10 a.m. PST. Currently, tickets are available with a season subscription to the 2012-2013 Cabaret Series. They will be available online at SCFTA.org, at the Box Office at 600 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa or by calling (714) 556-2787. For inquiries about group ticket savings for 10 or more, call the Group Services office at (714) 755-0236. The TTY number is (714) 556-2746. Segerstrom Center for the Arts applauds HÔM Sotheby’s International Realty for its support of Jane Monheit & John Pizzarelli Quartet. Acura is the Official Automotive Sponsor of the Center. Jane Monheit is an extraordinarily gifted vocalist whose sincere and romantic interpretations of exceptional songs have made her a favorite in both the jazz and cabaret worlds. Monheit has garnered numerous accolades in the past decade. Her first album, Never Never Land, was voted top debut recording by the Jazz Journalist’s Association and stayed on the Billboard Jazz chart for over a year. Subsequent albums either charted high, or in several cases, debuted at number one, and yielded two Grammy® nominations in the Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocals category, recognizing the work of Vince Mendoza on 2002’s In The Sun and 2004’s Taking A Chance On Love. Over the years, she has collaborated with artists such as Michael Bublé, Ivan Lins, Terence Blanchard and Tom Harrell. Monheit celebrated the 10th anniversary of her remarkable recording career with the release of her most mature, heartfelt album yet, Home, a collection of standards that represents a passionate return to her roots as a jazz musician. The CD features the band she has worked with onstage and off for most Page 6

of her career, as well as special guests such as Pizzarelli, Mark O’Connor and Larry Goldings. Home was her first album for Emarcy/Universal and also marks her debut as sole producer of a recording. John Pizzarelli has had a multifaceted career as a jazz guitarist, vocalist and bandleader. Internationally known for classic standards, late-night ballads and the hip jazz flavor he brings to his performances and recordings, he has recently established himself as the consummate entertainer and radio program host with the launch of Radio Deluxe with John Pizzarelli, a nationally syndicated radio program co-hosted with his wife, Broadway star Jessica Molaskey. Pizzarelli has been playing guitar since age six, following after his father guitar legend Bucky Pizzarelli. The elder Pizzarelli exposed him to all the great jazz music of the era, from Count Basie and Les Paul to Django Reinhardt and, of course, Nat “King” Cole. Using greats like Ellington, Cole and Sinatra and the songs of writers such as Rodgers, Gershwin and Jobim as touchstones, Pizzarelli is among the prime contemporary interpreters of the great American songbook, bringing to the work his signature style and brilliant guitar playing. In addition to being a bandleader and solo performer, Pizzarelli has been a special guest on recordings for major pop names such as James Taylor, Natalie Cole, Kristin Chenoweth, Tom Wopat, Rickie Lee Jones and Dave Von Ronk, as well as leading jazz artists like Rosemary Clooney, Ruby Braff, Johnny Frigo, Buddy DeFranco, Harry Allen and, of course, Bucky Pizzarelli. T h e C e n t e r ’s 2 0 1 2 – 2 0 1 3 Cabaret Series also includes: Michael Feinstein: The Sinatra Project – October 27, 2012 Lea Salonga – January 19, 2013 Marin Mazzie & Jason Danieley: A Cabaret Valentine – February 14 – 16, 2013 Barbara Cook 85th Birthday Concert – April 13, 2013 Betty Buckley – May 16 – 18, 2013 Single tickets go on sale for all upcoming Cabaret concerts on Sunday, August 26.

Know Your Rodeo Events

Bareback Riding

Bull Riding

Like saddle bronc riding, the first thing a bareback rider has to do is “mark out” the horse. Both spurs must touch the horse above the point of its shoulders when it makes its first jump from the chute. If the rider misses that mark—he’s disqualified. No saddle, no stirrups — just cowboy with a leather rigging in one hand and eight seconds of wild action.

As in all riding events, half the score is based on the rider’s performance and the other half is based on the bull’s efforts to throw him before the buzzer sounds. Bull riding is fast, physical and dangerous. Adding to the challenge: the cowboy must hold on with one hand. If his free hand touches the bull or himself, he’s out of the running.

Saddle Bronc Riding

Team Roping

One of the oldest events, the roots of saddle bronc riding reach back to the Old West when ranch hands would show off their style riding unbroken horses. In the modern event the rider attempts to win style points while staying on a bucking horse for a maximum of eight seconds. Judges consider the horse’s bucking action, the cowboy’s spurring action and his control of the horse

Don’t blink or you’ll miss one of the fastest events in rodeo. A two-man, two-horse team of header and heeler work with choreographed precision to chase down a speeding steer. The header ropes him around his protected horns, neck or a partial horn-neck catch, then turns the steer to the left so the heeler can rope its hind feet. The run is done when the team ropers’ horses are facing each other on opposite sides of the secured steer.

Steer Wrestling Known as the “big man’s event,” a steer wrestler (or bulldogger) needs brawn and brains to compete successfully. The steer gets a head start before the bulldogger on horseback races after him, slides down the side of his horse, grabs the running steer and wrestles him to the ground. A timed event, the clock stops when the steer is on his side with all four legs pointing in the same direction.

Tie Down Roping This is a beautiful display of teamwork between a cowboy and his horse. Luck of the draw comes into play, too. A spirited calf can thwart the best cowboys. After a head start, the mounted cowboy gives chase, ropes the calf, jumps off his horse and ties any three of the animal’s legs together. When he completes his tie, he remounts and allows the rope to go slack. If the calf kicks free within six seconds, the roper is disqualified. The Newport News

OC Look Event Honors OC’s Most Stylish and Benefits JDRF OC Chapter More than 350 people attended the OC Look 2012 party, an exquisite fundraising event that benefits JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) that was hosted by Orange Coast Magazine where seventeen Orange County residents who possess a certain “je ne sais quoi” with their style and fashion savvy where honored. Held at the home of prominent Orange County attorneys Daniel and Maureen Callahan in the Ritz Cove community of Dana Point, 2012 marks the fifth anniversary of OC Look and the magazine’s partnership with JDRF’s Dream Guild and the Orange County chapter. This year’s event raised more than $17,000 to support research to find a cure for diabetes. Walking into the event, you could tell this upscale soirée had all the makings for a successful celebration. Watching the sun set over the ocean at this magnificence home was absolutely breathtaking; however, guests were also treated to an evening of style and fashion. Rooms throughout the home were filled with a variety of fun things to do such as a beauty lounge by MAC Cosmetics, handwriting analysis by Montblanc, informal modeling and a popup shoe boutique by Saks Fifth Avenue which in my opinion was tantalizing to say the least! There was also a photo lounge by Lisa Renee Photography, a decadent dessert buffet by Christopher Garren’s Cakes and coffee station by Nespresso and the signature cocktails by Karlsson’s Vodka and Bel Air Bellini were also very popular and yummy. Sponsors this year included Wells Fargo, Land Rover, MAC Cosmetics, Montblanc, Karlsson’s Vodka, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tiffany & Co., Callahan & Blaine, Nespresso, Christopher Garrens Cakes, 24 Carrots catering, and Lisa Renee Photography. The roster of OC Look winners exemplify a spectrum of the different styles and cultures that make up Orange County. The 2012 Honorees are: C.J. Wilson, pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and founder of C.J. Wilson’s Children’s Charities; Francois Beauchemin, defenseman for the Anaheim Ducks; Eva La Rue, Emmy-winning actress best known for starring roles in CSI: Miami and All My Children; Oleema Miller, one half of the sisterly design duo behind Mikoh Swimwear; Dain Blanton, Olympic Gold Medalist (2000 for Beach Volleyball) and sportscaster for the Los Angeles Clippers; Nadia Bozetti, fashion designer and owner of Lunalba knitwear; Alan Fuerstman, CEO of Montage Hotels and Resorts; Susan Egan, Tony-nominated actress best known for starring roles in Cabaret and Beauty and the Beast; Tom & Franchesca Gilchriese, he is the CEO of TLG Paving Company and she is a recording artist with Capital Records and the daughter of the late Paul Robi of The Platters; Dimetria Jackson, president of the Orange County Bar Association and CEO of RedBambina.com; Hans Keirstead, Ph.D, professor of anatomy and neurobiology, neurological surgery at UC Irvine and chairman of California Stem Cell, Inc.; Dr. Nirav Savalia, board certified plastic surgeon of Newport Beach Center for Plastic Surgery; Analisa Albert, chef instructor, philanthropist and triathlete; Adam Neeley, designer of Adam Neeley Fine Art Jewelry; Cristana Rocamora-Suder, designer and founder of Studio C; and Beth Jones, fashion blogger and stylist for bjonesstyle.com.

How to Dress Like a “Real” Cowboy: 5 Crucial Elements by Alyssa B. Seeing how rodeo season will soon be in full swing, I thought it might be fitting to give you guys a a brief guide on how to dress like a “real” cowboy. First of all, if you are not the “cowboy-type” and have no interest in blending in, by all means wear whatever you want. But, if you want to be virtually indistinguishable from the guys in the arena, there are some important fashion “rules” that need to be adhered to. I have broken them down into 5 key areas:

1.) Hat A cowboy hat is serious business. If you are “in the know,” you can determine many things about a cowboy, by looking at his hat, including where he lives, what event he competes in, and most of all, whether or not he’s a “real” cowboy (or at least knows how to dress like one). The two main considerations here are material and shape. Felt hats are normally going to be more expensive than straw hats, and it is my recommendation that if you are going to spring for a felt hat, get a pretty good one made by a reputable hat maker. By pretty good, I mean some sort of a beaver blend rather than a wool felt. It will last longer and look better in the long run (and in the short, for that matter). Hat quality is determined by the number of “X’s” a hat has, however there is no industry standard for “X’s” so one company’s 10X could be another company’s 20X. Go with around a 6X or better from a company like Resistol or Stetson and you should be fine. If you don’t want to spring for a quality felt, get a nice looking straw hat. As far as shape is concerned, classic clean lines are best. Stay away from the “taco” hat, and the Toby Keith-style hats, keep hat bands simple and black is always a safe color for a felt hat. If you are going with a straw, stay away from colored hats. Tim McGraw might be able to pull off the black straw hat, but alas, Tim is a country music singer, not a cowboy and that is an entirely separate topic. If you don’t want to mess with a cowboy hat at all, baseball caps are acceptable, but my recommendation with ball caps is to either buy one Page 14

from the rodeo vendor show (from the rodeo itself, or one of the rodeo’s sponsor companies is a safe bet) or wear one from your favorite sports team. 2.) Boots Equally important to what you sport on your head is what you choose to put on your feet. You won’t see too many cowboys wearing lace-up boots these days, and pointy toed boots or “cockroach killers” on a guy aren’t going to cut it either. A simple roper-style boot with a flat heel and a round or square toe (square toes are very “in” right now) is your safest bet. Once you get the basic style down, there are hundreds of options in colors, materials and price point. Expect to pay anywhere from $130 for a standard, basic leather boot, up to more than $500 for exotics like ostrich and caiman. Oh, and no matter how pretty the tops of your boots are, your jeans should go over them, not the other way around.

3.) Belt This is a tricky area. A trophy buckle on a cowboy is proof to the rest of the world that he can carry his weight in the arena. A nice custom-designed silver 3-piece buckle says, “I may not have won this, but I am enough of a cowboy to know what looks good holding my pants up.” Pretty much any other kind of purchased western belt buckle (with a few exceptions) screams, “I am not a real cowboy!” Sporting a genuine trophy buckle that someone else won (while some may disagree with me on this) is perfectly acceptable in my book, because if you’re dressed well otherwise, nobody is going to know the difference. Borrow one from a cowboy friend, or check the pawn shops or ebay. Remember, retro is in, so “1956 Champion Saddle Bronc Rider” works, even if you weren’t yet hatched. . . could have been your dad’s, uncle’s or grand pappy’s. If a trophy buckle isn’t an option, my best advice is to keep it simple, and avoid drawing a lot of attention to the area. If you still want a silver buckle, I would recommend a tasteful and simple 3-piece

The Newport News

style (Vogt makes some really nice ones). Nothing with writing on it. As mentioned previously, a “fake” trophy buckle can be spotted a mile away. Custom-designed silver buckles with initials or a personal brand are totally different, but we won’t get into it here. In the interest of cost and wearability, your best bet might be to just buy a simple leather belt, like the one shown here made by Ariat, that comes with a tasteful buckle. If your boots are brown, buy a brown belt. It doesn’t necessarily need to be the same shade. Same thing goes for black. Leather belts only, please! Do not try to bring back the nylon belt trend of the 80′s and 90′s. Also, you will notice the girls wearing a lot of “bling” aka “sparkly things” on their belts. Some companies are making sparkly belts for guys too. Please don’t buy a sparkly belt. I have seen guys wearing them, but I personally feel that this is wrong on so many levels. A little silver is great, just stay away from the crystals. Thank you.

4.) Jeans When it comes to jeans, I would recommend sticking with a signature western brand like Wrangler, 20X (a division of Wrangler), or Cinch. They come in a plethora of different styles these days, and the style isn’t all that important as long as the fit is right. Just make sure they aren’t too tight (the skin-tight look went out in the 80′s) or too loose (there’s no “sagging” in rodeo) and that they are long enough. Length may be the most crucial part of selecting a good pair of jeans. Remember, you are going to be wearing them over your boots, so they need to be longer than what you would normally buy to wear with shoes. They need to “stack” a little bit so that they still cover the tops of your boots when you are sitting down. If you typically wear a 32″ inseam, you

might want to buy a 34″. If you really want to look the part, take your jeans to the dry cleaners and have them heavy starched. It will make you look sharp and authentic.

5.) Shirt Last but not least, the “cowboy shirt” as my brother referred to them when he was little. A nice button down, whether long sleeved or short will look the best. Stay away from western t-shirts. There are some really bad ones out there. Also, no wild colors, writing or graphics. If you’re getting your jeans starched, go ahead and do your shirt too, and add to your clean, pressed look. At the very least, take an iron to your shirt. It just looks better. As I mentioned, retro styles are very popular right now. Some are your basic “plaid with pearl snaps” numbers, other have some pretty funky graphics. Again, if you want to blend, the K.I.S.S. method is the way to go. For best results, stick with the five basics above. Leave the bolo ties, bandanas, spurs, chaps and any other unnecessary accessories at home. They are either inappropriate for the setting or just wrong in general. Plus, the more items you try to work into your ensemble, the greater chance you have of a direct violation of the cowboy dress code, which is what we are trying to avoid here. Now that you look the part, you just need to come up with a good story for the first person who asks you where you parked your pony. And remember, chicks dig cowboys, so the more authentic you look, the better chance you have of collecting a phone number or two before the night is over. Don’t worry, you can thank me later.

How to Dress Like a “Real” Cowgirl: 5 Key Components by Alyssa B. This is geared to the ladies who are heading out to watch the rodeo this summer. Let’s face it, the ladies are far more concerned about fashion anyway, and get to wear a lot more cute things than the guys. They also have substantially more leeway when it comes to dressing like a “real” cowgirl, so we will tackle these “components” a little differently than we did with the guys. However, first things first, I need to clarify one thing. This article addresses the prerogative of the ladies out there who would like to dress like “real” cowgirls, rather than “buckle bunnies,” therefore, the suggestions here will be geared to that end. If you are unfamiliar with the term, “buckle bunny,” they are the groupies of the rodeo world.

1.) Tops: Many, many super cute options here. Short-sleeved, long-sleeved – doesn’t matter, just dress for the weather. My only real hard and fast rules here are: keep the belly and the girls covered up. Cowgirls tend to be pretty fashion forward, and we like sparkly things. I personally really love accessories, so I tend to keep my shirt simple and dress it up with jackets, belts and jewelry, but we will get to that later… Pretty much anything trendy and fashionable (not super-revealing) would work here. It is perfectly acceptable to go with a non-western shirt too. Just keep it classy, ladies. 2.) Bottoms: For most of us, this is simple – jeans, all the way. I have seen some girls pull off shorts and skirts, but if not done well, this can be pretty bad. I would really recommend sticking with jeans or possibly even jean capris. Luckily there are a lot of really cute fashion jeans out there for us these days. Pocket details are practically a must, and are especially nice when

looking to transition from the rodeo to the rodeo after-party. =) Just pay attention to the length if you are going to wear them with cowboy boots. They may need to be a bit longer than your typical length in order to cover the tops of your boots when you’re sitting down. Also, I prefer a dark denim. They just look dressier and classier all around. of implications there that we won’t Jacket – If you’re heading to an even dive into here. Just take my evening rodeo performance, it is word for it. . always a good idea to have a jacket, just in case. Here in Montana, it 5.) Accessories: can cool off quite dramatically in the The most fun category by far be- evening. Plus, I love jackets because cause it encompasses so much! Let’s I really feel like they are great for break it down: completing a look. Western jean jackets and leather are my personal faves.

3.) Footwear: Although not completely necessary, I recommend cowboy boots. There are soooo many really cute styles, that I truly believe it is the way to go. However if you’re not a boot gal, there are some stylish alternatives as well, like blingy flip flops and sandals. If you are going with boots, I would recommend something with a square toe, as they are very much in fashion, or if you want something a little different, you can look at a fashion boot with a pointed toe, like these from Corral. 4.) Headwear: My recommendation is “hair”. Don’t wear a hat. Especially not one of those gawd-awful scrunchystraw-Toby-Keith-varieties. No “real” cowgirl in her right mind would be caught dead in a hat like that, unless she is making fun of it. Those hats scream “buckle bunny!” or at the very least, “yes, this is my first rodeo.” If a cowgirl is just going to the rodeo to watch and not compete, she normally will not wear a hat at all. And girls, don’t ever take a cowboy’s hat and put it on yourself. There are a LOT

Jewelry – So many options, but the chunky stone necklaces are very popular right now. The shirt above doesn’t need a necklace, but some stylish bracelets and earrings would add a nice touch. Purse – Many fashionable options in this category as well. You really can’t go Belt -If you have stepped into a wrong with most western purses. western clothing store lately, you have likely noticed the plethora of belts available to purchase. There is the traditional “throughyour-belt-loops” kind that comes in thousands of colors, styles, and different levels of “bling” infusion. Then, there is the “overthe-belt-loops” kind that is worn on the outside of your shirt. Obviously, this is strictly a fashion statement as it does little to actually hold your pants up. Under most circumstances, I highly recommend wearing a belt. If your shirt tucks in or sits at the top of your waistline, the traditional belt works best, but if you are wearing a long, somewhat tight shirt, the “over-the-loops” variety is the way to go.

A NIGHT WITH THE STARS UNDER THE STARS AT THE PAGEANT OF THE MASTER Christopher Cross Concert, Pageant hosted by Marcia Gay Harden and One Lucky Person Will Win A Brand New 2013 ACURA RDX and $5,000 cash! On August 25th, five-time Grammy, Oscar and Golden Globe awardwinner Christopher Cross will perform during the most momentous night of the summer art season: The Acura Celebrity Event, Concert and Pageant at the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts. All summer long, Festival of Arts visitors have been purchasing raffle tickets for a chance to win a 2013 Acura RDX AWD with Tech Package plus $5,000 cash (valued at nearly $50,000), and on this night the winning ticket will be pulled by Marcia Gay Harden. The evening will be one to remember, beginning at 5 pm when anticipated attending celebrities will walk the red carpet at the Festival of Arts entrance, including Barry Bostwick (COUGAR TOWN & SPIN CITY), David Chokachi, (SOUL SURFER & BAY WATCH), Seamus Dever (CASTLE), Joely Fisher (‘TIL DEATH), Kate Flannery (THE OFFICE), Jennifer Hall (UP ALL NIGHT), Robert David Hall (CSI), Richard Karn Page 16

At 6pm, in the intimate ambiance of the Festival of Arts, guests will be treated to a rare performance by Christopher Cross. Cross was by far the biggest new star of 1980, virtually defining adult contemporary radio with a series of smoothly sophisticated ballads including the #1 hit, “Sailing.” His 1980 self-titled debut album with the lead single “Ride Like the Wind” rocketed to the #2 spot; the massive success of the second single “Sailing” made Cross a superstar, and in the wake of two more Top 20 hits, “Never Be the Same” and “Say You’ll Be Mine,” he walked off with an unprecedented and record-setting five Grammys in 1981, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year for “Sailing.” He soon scored a second #1, as well as an Academy Award, with “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do),” which he co-wrote with Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager, and Peter Allen for the smash Dudley Moore film comedy Arthur. With a

string of post-megahit albums from the mid-1980s to the present represents, Cross has remained a unique artist, replete with that confounding blend of sensitivity, determination and conviction of his own artistry.

The funds raised will benefit the Festival of Arts programming and Building Fund for improvements and renovations. Following the pulling of the ticket, the evening will conclude with a captivating performance of the critically acclaimed Pageant of the Masters production of “The Genius.” “It’s the most anticipated night of the season,” said Sharbie Higuchi, director of marketing and PR for the Festival of Arts. “Acura has been incredibly generous and they deserve a great amount of recognition for their dedication to the arts. We also appreciate KOST Radio 103.5, which has shown tremendous support for the Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters.

We can’t wait to welcome Christopher Cross and Marcia Gay Harden, our other celebrity friends and most of all, the Pageant fans who will have a fabulous time at this special event!” Tickets for the Christopher Cross concert and Pageant event are $40 $250.

Know Your Rodeo Events

Bareback Riding

Bull Riding

Like saddle bronc riding, the first thing a bareback rider has to do is “mark out” the horse. Both spurs must touch the horse above the point of its shoulders when it makes its first jump from the chute. If the rider misses that mark—he’s disqualified. No saddle, no stirrups — just cowboy with a leather rigging in one hand and eight seconds of wild action.

As in all riding events, half the score is based on the rider’s performance and the other half is based on the bull’s efforts to throw him before the buzzer sounds. Bull riding is fast, physical and dangerous. Adding to the challenge: the cowboy must hold on with one hand. If his free hand touches the bull or himself, he’s out of the running.

Saddle Bronc Riding

Team Roping

One of the oldest events, the roots of saddle bronc riding reach back to the Old West when ranch hands would show off their style riding unbroken horses. In the modern event the rider attempts to win style points while staying on a bucking horse for a maximum of eight seconds. Judges consider the horse’s bucking action, the cowboy’s spurring action and his control of the horse

Don’t blink or you’ll miss one of the fastest events in rodeo. A two-man, two-horse team of header and heeler work with choreographed precision to chase down a speeding steer. The header ropes him around his protected horns, neck or a partial horn-neck catch, then turns the steer to the left so the heeler can rope its hind feet. The run is done when the team ropers’ horses are facing each other on opposite sides of the secured steer.

Steer Wrestling Known as the “big man’s event,” a steer wrestler (or bulldogger) needs brawn and brains to compete successfully. The steer gets a head start before the bulldogger on horseback races after him, slides down the side of his horse, grabs the running steer and wrestles him to the ground. A timed event, the clock stops when the steer is on his side with all four legs pointing in the same direction. Page 18

The Newport News

Tie Down Roping This is a beautiful display of teamwork between a cowboy and his horse. Luck of the draw comes into play, too. A spirited calf can thwart the best cowboys. After a head start, the mounted cowboy gives chase, ropes the calf, jumps off his horse and ties any three of the animal’s legs together. When he completes his tie, he remounts and allows the rope to go slack. If the calf kicks free within six seconds, the roper is disqualified.
