The public is invited to an art exhibition opening featuring Marks on the Land - The View from Here, Aerial Photography by Tom Lamb on Saturday, March 24 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Great Park Gallery at the Palm Court Arts Complex.This exhibition features artwork inspired by the former Marine Corps Air Station El Toro environment. Attendees can meet Tom Lamb and pick up a signed copy of Marks on the Land - The View from Here, a fully illustrated exhibition catalog that also includes a critical essay by Kristine Thompson. For several decades, Lamb employed helicopters to photograph Southern California’s agricultural lands, abandoned industrial sites and former military bases from an elevated vantage point. In Lamb’s oversized images, patterns and textures emerge that free the viewer from references to perspective to reveal hidden beauty. “We are excited to present Marks on the Land -The View from Here, which offers a unique view of Southern California through the lens of photographer, Tom Lamb,” said Beth Krom, Chair, Orange County Great Park Board Corporation. “This exhibition is part of a diverse series of cultural experiences that have made the Great Park Arts program come alive.” Marks on the Land -The View from Here is the third in a series of free Great Park Gallery exhibitions featuring site-specific focus of the Great Park Gallery. Last summer, 6,000 visitors enjoyed Plane Air Power: Painting and Sculpture by Jorg Dubin with another 7,400 visitor to The World’s Largest Photograph and The Legacy Project exhibition. Marks on the Land - the View from Here opens March 24, with an opening reception from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m, and runs through June 17. The Great Park Gallery is open Thursdays and Fridays from noon to 4:00 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free. The Orange County Great Park is located at Sand Canyon and Marine Way, and can easily be reached by the 5 or 405 freeways. For more information, please visit www.ocgp.org or call 949-724-OCGP. The Orange County Great Park, with its 1,347-acre master plan, is the focal point of the redevelopment of the publicly-owned portion of the 4,700acre former Marine Corps Air Station, El Toro. The Great Park features an iconic tethered helium balloon that rises 400 feet in the air, providing an aerial view of Park development.

DENTAL PATIENTS DRIVE TWO HOURS FROM VICTORVILLE TO SEE LADERA RANCH PAIN-FREE DENTIST DR. MICHAEL TESSIER Recently, a mother called Dr. Michael Tessier’s office to arrange an appointment for her fifteen-yearold daughter who is deathly afraid of shots in her mouth. Only one thing was unusual. They live in Victorville, about two hours away. But the long hot drive was certainly worth it to mom, if her daughter could have painless, shot-free dental work. “I visited Dr.Tessier several years ago before we moved to Victorville” said the child’s mother. “But when I took my fifteen year old daughter to a local dentist out there, she screamed in pain and raised such a fuss and refused to ever go back. I thought she would change her mind, but she would not. Finally, I told her I knew of one dentist that was gentle and pain free but it was a long trip from Victorville to Ladera Ranch. At last she agreed to go”, she said. When they arrived for their appointment with Dr. Tessier, the young girl was crying, sobbing, and shaking, barely in control. Dr. Tessier said; “It took about thirty minutes for her mother and my staff to get her calmed down enough to get her dental work started”, he said, “Very soon using the Whisper Jet, a micro miniature sandblaster using 50 micron-size particles of aluminum oxide, and the Waterlase MD Laser, we got this young lady’s two fillings completed without anesthetic, and with no pain, because of today’s technology. The more I work with the laser and the sandblaster, filling teeth without the need for drilling and therefore anesthetic, the more I realize how much dentistry has changed over the last 30 years. When the drill and the carbide burr were our only cutting options, we made it more likely that, in their later adulthood, these teeth would crack, ultimately needing crowns. Today, we’re leaving these teeth stronger. This stuff is great. So from now on, nothing will be difficult for her, except perhaps the ride from Victorville,” he said with a smile. 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

wholesome fun and a positive dating experience Southern California youth from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints attended the Mormon Prom on Saturday, March 17th at Soka University in Aliso Viejo, California. Youth from the Santa Margarita, Mission Viejo, San Clemente, and Laguna Niguel congregations, ages 16-18, were invited to join the annual event. Marci Paul, the Young Women President for Foothill Ranch, said, “it is all about having wholesome fun and a positive dating experience and being with a group of youth that share the same high standards.” Jordan Procuniar, of Portola Hills, asked his mother, Anne, if she could help plan a dinner for him and his seminary class. (A daily earlymorning high school religion class) He thought it would be good to be together before the dance and there wouldn’t be a large expense. Anne, mother of six, asked other mothers for a little help and put on a grand looking dinner for 36 youth at the community clubhouse while only charging $10 per couple. “I made the entree (roasted chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, honey glazed carrots and rolls) and asked for help from the other parents for a salad and dessert bar, set-up, serving, and clean-up. It was all worth the effort to watch the youth have a wonderful time together.” Then it was on to the themed dance entitled “The Sweetest Night of Your Life” with tickets at just $10/ couple. Professional pictures and refreshments, like candy and floats, were included in the package. But not everyone had an easy time getting to the prom. Broken bones, volleyball games, and crutches didn’t keep these youth from their big night. Kiley Bowen, a senior at Trabuco Hills High School, plays for Saddleback Valley Volleyball Club. She had Jr. National Qualifiers the same day as the dance. She played a match at 3pm, 5pm and 8:30pm. She missed going to the group dinner and pictures but she made a commitment to her club and team to be at all the tournaments that weren’t on Sunday. She arrived at the dance at 10:12pm coming straight from Anaheim, doing her make-up and hair in the car. Her original date ended up in the hospital with a health problem so she met her last-minute replacement date Ryan Knecht, from Mission Viejo, at the dance. Kiley said, “It was a little crazy to get there but I knew it was my last Mormon Prom and I didn’t want to miss it.” Page 6

Barbara Bell, from San Clemente, said Lauren Bell’s date, David Sorensen from Laguna Niguel, broke his hip in a ski accident before the prom but that didn’t stop him from going. He came crutches and all. Barbara Bell, was involved with the first Mormon Prom in California seven years ago. “The school dances were so expensive and not always such a good environment. We do this dance at a nice venue where they have high standards in dress, dance and music. We invite all youth as long as they are willing to abide by the standards. That first year we had a big spread in the Orange County Register and we got calls from many parents that weren’t Mormon but wanted their youth to participate. We learned that parents appreciate knowing their children are having a good time in a safe environment with high standards.” Madelyn Paul, a senior at El Toro High School, said, “I love how the dance has such a positive atmosphere where everyone is happy and having a good time. It is nice knowing that you are surrounded by others who share the same values and standards.”

Pro Football Players Rally - Raise Over $600k for Orangewood Athletes First, a Newport Beach sports agency that represents more than 80 athletes and coaches, partnered with Orangewood Children’s Foundation and its PALS auxiliary again this year and hosted its annual two-day fundraiser, “The Athletes First Classic.” The gala event was held at the St. Regis Resort, Monarch Beach in Dana Point with a golf tournament the following day. Athletes attending the weekend events included 2011 Super Bowl-winning quarterback Aaron Rodgers (G.B. Packers), USC alum Matt Leinart (Houston Texans), Defensive Rookie of the Year Von Miller (Denver Broncos), Scotty McKnight (NY Jets) with girlfriend actress Hayden Panettiere, and 18 young players represented by Athletes First going into the 2012 draft including Melvin Ingram of South Carolina who is expected to be taken in the first round. Over 800 people gathered at the gala; folks were greeted with a reception and very large silent auction as they entered the St. Regis. Dinner was exceptionally delicious starting with family style appetizers with traditional and tomato hummus, eggplant caviar, goat cheese spread, marinated olives with mini crudité with bay vegetables. The entrée was a duo of slow cooked Beef Short Ribs and Miso Glazed Cod that was served with rice shitake cake and traditional mashed potato, parsnip puree, braising jus, white port and ginger emulsion with seasonal vegetables. Served for dessert was peanut butter chocolate crunch bar and a Raspberry Coulis and Lemon Crème Brule with fresh raspberries was just delightful. After the welcome “thank you’s” and the introduction of all the athletes in attendance, a former foster youth Ashley Fortini game a heart wrenching testimony. Ashley began her speech by saying, “My life is not a sob story; it is a miracle.” She described her troubled childhood filled with abuse, but thanks to the support and resources of Orangewood Children’s Foundation, today Ashley is a senior at CSUF who will be graduating in May. She concluded by telling the audience, “Thank you for your generosity, you have changed my future.” After receiving a standing ovation by the crowd, the audience was so moved by her story they donated over $200,000 to Orangewood’s scholarship fund. The culmination of the evening was the presentation of the 2012 Golden Heart Award to Vizio CEO William Wang and San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. The award is given annually to two honorees, one an athlete who has been a positive role model and has made contributions off the field, and the other a local business leader who has exhibited leadership in doing good works and benefiting humanity. “Golden Heart honorees back up their success with generosity,” said Athletes First C.E.O. and Orangewood board member David Dunn. After receiving the Golden Heart award from presenter and friend Wing Lam, Wang thanked the audience and NFL player Joe Flacco (Baltimore concluded his comments by donated 10 Ravens) and committee member Vizio all-in-one desktop computers to Keri Dugan Page 8

Orangewood for their youth. Harbaugh received his award by his parents, Jack and Jackie. At the end of his remarks, he offered one surprise live auction item – a 49ers away game experience which sold for $45,000 to Mike Yurkovich and Chad Yagle. The item offered the experience of joining the team on the team bus and airplane to and from the game, staying at the same hotel as the players, and enjoying the game up close from the sidelines. “This was a great opportunity for our clients to come together for a great cause,” said Athletes First CEO David Dunn. “I applaud them for taking time out of their extremely busy schedules to help the kids of Orangewood, and to help honor Jim Harbaugh and William Wang.” For more information about Orangewood Foundation visit www.orangewoodfoundation.org.

Spring Break 2012: Mother-Daughter Activities By Kristen Bentley Mother-daughter activities are not limited to trips to the salon for a manicure or pedicure. Spring break activities can be fun, educational, and fulfilling. 1. Antiquing and Thrifting. Mothers and daughters don’t have to take a trip to the mall, but can explore their city’s unique shops like antique stores and thrift shops. Antiquing offers mothers and daughter time to explore history. Daughter can learn about what their mother’s childhood was like by being able to see items at an antique store. Mothers can share stories of their childhood experiences. When moms and daughters go thrifting, they can have fun digging through treasures to see what great outfits, household items, and other things they can find. Thrifting involves creativity; shopping at the mall takes the creativity out of the equation. 2. Visit a Yoga Studio Many yoga studios have motherdaughter nights. Mothers and daughters might be lucky enough to find a partner yoga class, where they can work together to build poses. Some yoga studios have

special events to practice meditation, to try out hula-hoop yoga, to take a workshop with travelling yogis, or maybe to listen to chanting or yoga-style music. 3. Try Out Local Restaurants Cities and towns are full of locally owned restaurants. Spring break is a perfect time to go to restaurants that mothers and daughters do not usually patronize. Mothers and daughters can try local ethnic restaurants, daring each other to try food they would not normally eat. 4. Take Art Classes Local Y’s, non-profits, and local craft stores offer free or low cost craft lessons. Mothers and daughters can learn the latest crafting techniques or learn a traditional art like sketching or sculpting. Many local art venues offer special events during school vacations, so if mothers and daughters want to get down and dirty in the local arts, check out your local art venues’ spring break schedules. 5. Take a Hike If the weather permits, mothers and daughters can take a hike. Mothers and daughters can hike in a local park, on a state park trail, or on a converted railroad trail. Taking

a bird book, tree book, or wild flower book can make the hike educational. Mothers and daughters can also challenge each other to find rare birds, trees, or flowers on the nature

walks. Mothers and daughters have many possible activities to try out during Spring Break 2012. The key is to be creative and adventurous.
