5 steps to the perfect fishing trip with dad When you were a kid and needed to learn something new, you went to Dad, right? He’s the one who taught you how to ride a bike and drive a car. He’s also the one who taught you how to bait your hook for the first time. You’ve never forgotten these skills and now is a great time to say thank you to the man who helped you learn and grow by taking him out for a day of fishing. You might even teach him a thing or two. Whether it’s for Father’s Day or his birthday, this is a great time of year to surprise him with can’t-miss gifts he’ll enjoy while sharing his favorite pastime with you. So don’t delay. The weather’s great and the boat is ready. Make the most of it with this list of tips guaranteed to show Dad a fishing trip he won’t forget. * Surprise him with the perfect invitation. If your dad can’t say no to helping with a project, surprising him with a fishing trip will be easy. Ask for his help on something you can’t do yourself. You can even poke at him about how hard the project will be, just don’t go too far or he won’t show up. And then, when he arrives,

show him the car packed and ready to hit his favorite honey hole. He’ll be so happy he may just forgive you for the trick. * Plan to the last detail. On a good fishing trip, the drive is half the fun, so don’t race through it. Take Dad to his favorite restaurant for breakfast, play his favorite tunes in the car and have a steaming cup of his favorite coffee waiting for him when you hit the open road. * Surprise him with the right gear. Help dear old Dad up his angling acumen by giving a few thoughtful gifts throughout the day. Start the surprise by setting up his favorite rod and reel, before picking him up, with Sufix 832 Advanced Superline. A go-to fishing line for the world’s best anglers, this braided line has the strength and durability to ward against line breaks and will ensure Dad’s next big catch makes it all the way to the boat. And at the end of this line you can tie on the dynamic Rapala Ripstop. An innovative new lure, the bait features a unique hard-plastic-boot tail that creates a hard-rolling, slashing action to mimic

live-minnow movement, perfect for drawing plenty of attention. Then after a morning of catching fish on the water, hand Dad the Rapala Lithium Ion Cordless Fillet to make quick work of even the most intimidating filleting chore. Its lithium-ion battery provides continuous, full-power operation for 80 minutes, and will have the two of you enjoying a delicious shore lunch in no time. * Cap the day off right. When the sun starts to set and the day of fishing is finally done, cap the day off with a drink at his favorite spot or sit around

the fire telling stories. Just don’t be surprised if the size of Dad’s catch has grown considerably by then - it is a fish story after all. * Sit back and enjoy the ride. All of your planning has come to make this day as special for you as it is for your father, so don’t miss a moment of it. Put the phone away and unplug while engaging in conversation. You may just learn a thing or two about your dad that you never knew before and the memories you’ll get from your trip together will last a lifetime. - (BPT)

Father’s Day was founded in 1910 by Sonora Smart Dodd. Its first celebration was in Spokane, Washington on June 19, 1910. Her father, the Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart, was a single parent who reared his six children in Spokane, Washington. After hearing a sermon about Jarvis’ Mother’s Day in 1909, she told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honoring them. Although she initially suggested June 5, her father’s birthday, the pastors hadn’t enough time to prepare their sermons, and the celebration was deferred to the third Sunday of June. It didn’t have much success initially. In the 1920s, Dodd stopped promoting the celebration because she was studying in the Art Institute of Chicago, and it faded into relative

obscurity, even in Spokane. In the 1930s Dodd returned to Spokane and started promoting the celebration again, raising awareness at a national level. She had the help of those trade groups that would benefit most from the holiday, for example the manufacturers of ties, tobacco pipes, and any traditional present to fathers. Since 1938 she had the help of the Father’s Day Council, founded by the New York Associated Men’s Wear Retailers to consolidate and systematize the commercial promotion A bill to accord national recognition of the holiday was introduced in Congress in 1913. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson went to Spokane to speak in a Father’s Day celebration and wanted to make it official, but Congress resisted, fearing that

it would become commercialized. US President Calvin Coolidge recommended in 1924 that the day be observed by the nation, but stopped short of issuing a national proclamation. Two earlier attempts to formally recognize the holiday had been defeated by Congress. In 1957, Maine Senator Margaret Chase Smith wrote a proposal accusing Congress of ignoring fathers for 40 years while honoring mothers, thus “[singling] out just one of our two parents”. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.

My father used to say that it’s never too late to do anything you wanted to do. And he said, ‘You never know what you can accomplish until you try. ~ Michael Jordan

Orange County Native Receives Top Honors in D.C. By Navy Recruiting Command Public Affairs Navy Counselor 1st Class James Condon, from Anaheim, California, was awarded the Navy Recruiting Command (NRC) Sales Person of the Year for 2017 during a ceremony at the Navy Memorial in Washington D.C., May, 17.

ceremony. “Some may think that our ships, aircraft and submarines are the Navy’s most important assets, but really it’s our Sailors.” Condon is currently assigned to Navy Talent Acquisition Group Portland. For him, the Navy has been a life-changing experience. “The Navy has a lot of benefits that are offered, but ultimately knowing that I could be a Sailor and give back to this great nation was my main reason for joining,” said Condon. “It has challenged me every day to push myself to be a better Sailor, Husband, and father.

Men don’t have the best track record when it comes to taking care of themselves. It’s safe to say we all know someone who is just plain stubborn about going to the doctor. Even if they exhibit clear symptoms that should be checked out, say wheezing, chronic fatigue or worse, it can be a challenge to get them to seek medical help. Of course, not all men are like this. In fact, as a whole, men have been getting better about taking care of themselves, according to new data gathered by the American Academy of Family Physicians. “Men have begun paying more attention to their health and acting to maintain good health,” says Wanda Filer, MD, MBA, president of the AAFP and a practicing family physician. “They are getting physical exams, increasing their exercise activity, and getting their health care from their regular doctor.” With this encouraging news, it’s important to remember that men’s health is still a big concern. By keeping the following three points in mind, you can help yourself, or a loved one, lead a longer and healthier life. Health care is preventive, too.

you go to the doctor only when you’re sick or not feeling well. So, what’s the most common barrier that prevents men from seeing a doctor? Answer: themselves. According to a 2016 survey conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of the AAFP, 31 percent of men wait until they feel extremely sick before seeing a doctor, and 21 percent say they have no reason to go to a doctor when feeling healthy. As Filer says, “Not feeling sick is not necessarily the same as being healthy.” Early detection and preventive care are two of the most important ways to maintain health and prevent potential health concerns from becoming major problems. Step away from the screen. Though more men exercise in 2016 than they did in the AAFP’s 2007 survey (80 percent vs 74 percent), many men still spend a considerable amount of time looking at screens. In the 2016 online survey of 916 men across the country, the AAFP found that men spend, on average, about 20 hours each week working at a computer and 19 hours in front of a television.

While it’s nearly impossible to avoid screens in this day and age, men should be motivated to take on more physical and active hobbies that can reduce stress and improve their physical health. Develop a relationship with a family physician. An important step men can take to ensure they receive regular checkups and preventive care is to regularly visit a family physician. Nearly eight in 10 men (79 percent) have a regular doctor or health care professional they see when they are sick or want medical advice, however, a family physician not only treats the whole

person, but the whole family. This is because an individual’s health should be a concern for the entire family. The value of a family physician is that they perform routine checkups, immunizations and screenings. They can also treat chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, asthma, arthritis and depression. “If more men develop ongoing relationships with their family physician, their perception of good health is more likely to become reality,” said Dr. Filer.

Governor Brown, Legislative Leaders Reach Budget Agreement Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr., Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon today announced that they have reached an agreement on the 2018-19 state budget. The budget agreement makes record investments in schools and universities, creates the state’s first online community college, fully fills the Rainy Day Fund, boosts child care and combats homelessness and poverty. “After detailed discussions, California is on the verge of having another on-time, balanced budget,” said Governor Brown. “From a $27 billion deficit in 2011, the state now enjoys a healthy surplus and a solid Rainy Day Fund.”  “From day one, we knew we needed to prepare for the inevitable economic downturn. That is why this budget balances fiscal responsibility with social responsibility by significantly expanding the Rainy Day Fund and also making record levels of investment in education funding  –  both K-12 and higher education  –  child care access, and

funding to fight homelessness and to protect children from living in deep poverty. I commend Governor Brown for his steady leadership throughout his years as Governor of this great state, and to Speaker Rendon for his partnership in the Legislature. We have crafted the strongest budget possible for the people of California,” said Senate President pro Tempore Atkins. “This budget agreement brings together shared priorities of the Assembly, the Senate, and the Governor — easing the homelessness crisis, providing a pathway toward healthcare for all, lifting families out of poverty, keeping college affordable for California students, and building responsible reserves as protection against tough times. No single budget can capture all the opportunities California has, or meet all the challenges we face — but the smart and sensible choices in this budget absolutely move California closer to where we want and need to be,” said Assembly Speaker Rendon.

Man cave, manspace, manctuary ... whatever he calls it, it’s Dad’s special place away from the rest of the house. This Father’s Day, give Dad the ultimate gift and make him his own man cave. It’s easier than you think, and a thoughtful gift that says to Dad, “I love you, and you can run away from us now.” Step 1: Identify the space The optimal man cave is secluded, has a lockable door and is 100 percent Dad’s to own and decorate. Examples include garages, basements, dens, attics or for the bookish types, studies. When locating Dad’s man cave, consider this - it’s his to own, decorate, use and entertain in however he chooses. He will clean it (or not) how he sees fit ... although you can encourage him with a heavy-duty vacuum, like the RIDGID Wet/Dry Vac. Step 2: Clear it out and outfit it Dad needs a blank canvas to create his masterpiece. Clear out all the boxes, industrial-size cleaning and paper products and any other knickknacks you’ve stored there. Locate the focal point of the room and think about what he’ll put there. For sports-loving dads and his friends, this will probably be a big screen TV. For the DIYer and builder, it’s where his workbench goes. * Paint it. A fresh coat of paint does wonders. In one glance, it can tell you that you’ve entered the “man room.” BEHR paint experts recommend dark blues, greens or reds for a man cave, with accents of charcoal blacks or chocolate brown. * No matter the dad, you’ll want to set him up with durable storage options that can handle anything from power tools to whiskey stones, like a Husky

9-drawer Mobile Work Center, $249 or the Husky 48 inch Floor Cabinet, $379. It’ll also withstand every day wear and tear and look great years from now. * Does Dad like giant TVs? Don’t run the risk of having it crash to the ground. Get a mounting kit, like the Level Mount Adjustable Fixed Mount, $47.99. If you’ve got questions on how to install, ask an associate when you’re picking it up. Step 3: Stock it Next, fill ‘er up with goodies to keep him busy for days. Whether these gifts are for his projects or just for relaxing, Dad deserves ultimate setup. * If Dad likes to entertain or just stay refreshed while working, an ice maker and mini fridge will keep him from having to leave his new favorite place. Check out the Magic Chef 27-lb Portable Ice Maker ($199) and the SPT Mini Refrigerator, $169. * Dad like toys? Hook him up with the latest innovation in power tools - lithium ion batteries. They hold their charge four times longer than traditional ni-cad batteries. For newbies, the Ryobi ONE+ 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Drill and Impact Driver Combo kit or the Ryobi ONE + Ultimate Combo Kits are both great choices to get Dad drilling. For the fully-stocked DIYer, try the Ryobi 18-Volt ONE+ 18-Gauge Cordless 2 inch Brad Nailer. If it’s hand tools he’s after, you can get lifetime-guaranteed Husky 7-Piece Ratcheting Mobile Wrench Set. * Give him something cool to show off with his friends. Check out the Defiant AmorMax 3D Tactical Flashlight, $29.97, which can shine the length of three football fields and work even while submerged in 30 feet of water; a Kerogrator Beer Keg Fridge,

$499 or an LED headlamp like the Defiant 7 LED Headlamp, $17.97 (you’ll be shocked at the uses he’ll find for this). * Let him choose his own adventure with new Project Cards from The Home Depot - load it up with the amount needed for Dad’s next project and he can track the balance with no fees. If you’re helping Dad, you can also be added to the account to use the card when you run out for supplies. Step 4: Break it in Every new space needs a housewarming party, including caves. Invite the guys over and encourage Dad to show off his man cave’s sweet style.- Put together tubs of soda, beer and water, order the wings, arrange easy table snacks like chips and salsa, and let them have at it. Cheers to this mancutary.

Thanks, Dad: 5 special things you can do for your father this season He was there when you rode your bike for the first time, got behind the wheel of a car and when you simply couldn’t figure out algebra. Your dad has been there for you through the good and the bad and he’s given you so much that you can’t help but want to give back. Now’s the perfect time. Whether you do it for Father’s Day, his birthday, anniversary or a simple surprise Tuesday, anytime can be the perfect backdrop to show Dad just how much he’s meant to you and it all starts with these tips. * Celebrate his interests. What does your dad love to do? Whatever it is, do it with him. Whether it’s a fishing trip to his favorite lake, tickets to watch his favorite team play or even a surprise trip to the destination he’s always wanted to visit, Dad will love the gift even more if it means spending time with you. * Indulge him with the latest tech. If your dad is a gadget guy, now is the perfect time to indulge him with the latest technology. One way to do this is to solve the WiFi troubles in his home with eero, a reliable and secure home WiFi solution. Instead of relying on a single router to cover the entire home, eero will provide WiFi

to every room. No more dead spots, slow spots or drop-offs; it’s the perfect solution for total WiFi coverage. And it’s secure - unlike traditional routers, eero receives regular security updates automatically, so no more searching, downloading or installing needed. * Think of everything. This sounds daunting at first, of course, but one of the best gifts you can give Dad is a day away from the pressures he normally feels. That means if you plan to spend the day with him doing one of the activities listed above, plan that activity out to the last detail so he only has to go along for the ride. And if you’re not planning to do such an excursion, your dad will appreciate your help with a job on his to-do list. Painting, yard work or errands, the more you can do for him, the less stress he’ll feel. * Create a scrapbook. From social media to computers and cloud storage, finding the photos and videos that relive important life moments has never been easier. Use them and create a scrapbook or digital memento for your father. Celebrate some of your greatest adventures together and you’ll create a keepsake he’ll cherish forever.

* Say thank you. This one is so simple it’s amazing how many people forget to do it. At the same time, though, sometimes a simple thankyou is all Dad needs. Thank him for everything he has brought to your life.

Thank him for teaching you to ride a bike, drive a car or trying to teach you algebra. Let him know that you appreciate everything he has done for you and you’ll truly deliver your father a one-of-a-kind present. - (BPT)

Think Together Raises $375,000 And Celebrates 21 Years

Matt and Jackie Brunwin

The Ladera Ranch News

More than 300 community and business leaders came together to celebrate Think Together’s annual “Raise a Hand” event at [AV] Irvine. They raised $375,000 to benefit the organization’s programs that change the odds for children and youth from low-income families. The celebration featured a “Face of the Future” college scholarship award given to two students who have worked hard to beat the odds, and a “Champion of Change” award, honoring an individual who is changing the odds for kids. Guests also had the opportunity to interact with students in “a day in the life” program showcases.   Folks settled in for a wonderful dinner prior to the program starting – consisting of Watermelon and Feta Salad with Balsamic Glaze for starters. Next came a plate of Filet Mignon and Chilean Sea Bass Duo, a choice filet mignon with cremini mushroom and bourbon demi-glaze pan-seared Chilean sea bass with Meyer lemon and roasted shallot butter truffle with smashed Yukon gold potatoes accompanied with fresh spring asparagus. For dessert, a Chocolate Reflection Cake had everyone excited as this dark chocolate cake had a rich chocolate mousse filling with dark chocolate glaze and raspberry coulis – decadent! There was a quick live auction where attendees were privy to some great items. First up for grabs - a three night/three-bedroom villa golf & spa escape at the Resort at Pelican Hill; then there was a Tequila tasting and prix fix dinner for 10 in the private cellar at Gabbi’s Mexican kitchen; someone Caleb Remington and Tiffany Au walked away with a private tour and tasting for 6 at Joseph Phelps vineyards; and lastly, a bidder’s choice - ticket exchange: one lucky winning bidder has choice of two tickets to a major sporting event in 2018. Opportunities typically include: Golf US Masters Tournament, NCAA Final Four Basketball Tournament, NFL Super Bowl, or US Open Tennis. Package included a $2,000 American Express gift card which can be used toward travel and lodging. When the program began, awards were given out with the “Face of the Future” college scholarship award presented to Ana Lua Martel and Daniella Manzanares.  Martel, a Think Together student, Class of 2018  is a La Puente resident and a senior at Bassett High School. She has participated in Think Together’s programs for 8 years and was accepted to six California universities. She plans to obtain her bachelor’s degree in Political Science and continue to law school after college. Martel’s goal is to become an immigration lawyer to better serve the Latino community and help families stay together.  Manzanares, also a Think Together student, Class of 2018 is a Costa Mesa resident and a senior at Pacifica Christian High School in Newport Beach. She has participated in Think Together’s programs since kindergarten at the Shalimar Learning Center. In the fall, she will be attending one of the nine universities she applied to, where she plans to major in Business and Leo Vanwarnerdam with Sterling minor in Spanish. Manzanares plans to pay it forward during college and Joyce Lee with Eunice Sun Cates after by inspiring others, just as she was inspired by the Think Together staff at Shalimar.  The “Champion of Change” award was presented to Gudiel Crosthwaite, EdD, Superintendent, Lynwood School District, and Paul Gothold, EdD, Retired Superintendent, Lynwood School District. They both helped champion the revitalization of Lynwood Unified School District (LUSD) and the lives of families in the community through Principal’s Exchange, in partnership with Think Together.   “We are beyond grateful to our dedicated donors and supporters who believe in our goal of educational equity and excellence for all kids,” said Randy Barth, CEO and Founder of Think Together. “Through their support, Think Together has been able to transform schools and children throughout the state and we look forward to partnering with even more schools to take kids from just beating the odds, to fundamentally changing the odds for years to come.” Think Together was formally founded as a nonprofit in 1997 to expand its support model to schools serving low income students. Today, the organization is a trusted partner of 43 California school districts and impacts over 150,000 kids in 422 program sites every year.  Its programs and services continue to evolve to support learning in and out of school, so kids can succeed in their journey from pre-school to college or career readiness. For more information, visit Zen Michael Dyer and Devin Long Page 12
