As the crowd entered the Elks Lodge, they were welcomed by an Irish sign which proclaimed, “Céad Míle Fáilte”, which means “A Hundred Thousand Welcomes”. In typical Irish Pub fashion, glasses were raised with the Gaelic toast of, “Sláinte”, which means “Good Health”. The sold out audience enjoyed a buffet style authentic Irish dinner. Past Exalted Ruler Pat Martino prepared corn beef and cabbage. Ann Mallen, originally from County Cork Ireland, prepared authentic Irish homemade shepherd’s pie, potato soup, carrots and turnips and Irish (l to r): Aniar Dancers with Ann and Ray Mallen; Bridget Sagert, Kennon soda bread. As a young girl, Ann was a champion Irish dancer. Guests were entertained by and danced to the music of the Whoo- Compton, Kaitlin Ryan, McKenna Walsh, Regan Wood, Kendal Wood, ligans.

Eagles Recognized as All-CIF Following the CIF-SS Championship Victory Head Coach Kevin Ricks of Costa Mesa was named the 2012-2013 CIF-SS, Division II, Coach of the Year after leading the Eagles to the CIF-SS Division II Championship, a Trinity League Championship and a 25-6 overall record. The overall record goes down as the second best all-time in Eagle’s history. Coach Ricks has a career record of 188-145 as the head coach of the SMCHS Girls Water Polo Program. Junior Haley Wan of Irvine was selected the CIF-Southern Section, Division II, Player of the Year following her standout performance in the CIF Championship Game. Haley tallied five goals, 2 assists and 4 steals leading the Eagles to their second CIF Championship in girl’s water polo. Senior Emily Loughlin of San Clemente and junior Kacey Avalos of Lake Forest were recognized on the All-CIF First Team. Emily’s spectacular performance in the semifinal against El Toro HS where she scored the first four goals of the game sealed the Eagles’ trip to the finals. Kacey Avalos is in many ways the unsung hero of the team. Kacey’s consistent contributions at the defensive and offensive end were in Coach Kevin Ricks many cases the difference in games. Kacey’s passes are made with laser-like precision and she tallied a school record of 72 assists this season. Senior Morgan Martinez of San Juan Capistrano and junior Kelli Bamgardner of Laguna Niguel were selected to the All-CIF, Second Team. Morgan’s performance in the Trinity League showdown between the Eagles and the Mater Dei Monarchs was impressive. She made five field blocks on the night denying several key opportunities to the Monarchs. Kelli Baumgardner had a breakout season for the Eagles and she steadily improved her play at both ends of the pool becoming a critical component of the team. She scored once in the CIF Championship Game while making two key assists in the victory. Senior Jackie Villarreal of Laguna Hills was recognized on the All-CIF Division II, Honorable Mention list. Jackie is a tremendous talent whose physical defense and lightening shot allowed her to contribute throughout the season in all facets of the game. She will be attending San Diego State in the fall to continue her playing career. Haley Wan photos by ROBERT RUSSELL PHOTOGRAPHY

Four Santa Margarita Students Named National Merit Scholarship Finalists Santa Margarita Catholic High School is home to four National Merit Scholarship finalists, an elite honor less than one percent of high school seniors nationwide who took the Preliminary SAT achieved. Congratulations to SM students Jordan Francis, Chris Kateyiannis, Nicole Minkina and Alexander Mott, who achieved finalist standing and now, move on in the competition to be considered for a National Merit $2,500 scholarship. The National Merit Scholarship Program honors high school students who demonstrate academic excellence. Nearly 1.5 million high school students are entered into the program by taking the Preliminary SAT/ National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which serves as the initial screening of program entrants. The standardized test provides students practice for the SAT and accessibility to college and career tools. Finalists are later chosen based on their academic record, SAT scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test, a high school official’s written recommendation, student activities and leadership, and a written essay. All finalists must Page 4

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..

The Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) extend an invitation to the public for the highly-anticipated 13th Annual Spring Tours Series. Participants will experience the natural beauty of Orange County on guided walks through land set aside and protected with the construction of the 73, 133, 241 and 261 Toll Roads. Led by the restoration specialist and biologist who has spent the last two decades restoring these sites to their native habitat and contributing to The Toll Roads’ award-winning environmental programs, this year’s tours focus on the comprehensive efforts and commitment to environmental conservation and restoration, and provide an exclusive glimpse into special areas of Orange County that few have ever seen. Upper Chiquita Canyon – April 6, 2013 Natural growth process and bird watching tour, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. This 1,182-acre conservation area located near Wagon Wheel and Coto de Caza was set aside with construction of the 241 Toll Road. A moderate to strenuous six-mile guided walk gives participants a peek at an area rich with coastal sage scrub, oak woodland, grassland and natural drainage habitats. The tour, which includes some vigorous hills, will be led by a restoration specialist and biologist. Walking sticks, sturdy hiking shoes and binoculars are highly recommended. 73 Toll Road Slopes/Upper Laurel

Canyon – May 4, 2013 Wildlife undercrossing tour, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. This strenuous sixmile guided walk begins in the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park and leads participants up through an oak woodland canyon toward the 73 Toll Road. It continues through a wildlife undercrossing where participants can look for tracks and identify wildlife using the crossing. The hike reaches a scenic point overlooking Shady Canyon, Laguna Canyon and beyond. Restoration techniques used to create sustainable habitat for the California gnatcatcher, a threatened songbird will be described. Come prepared to hike along steep and sometimes narrow trails. Walking sticks, sturdy hiking shoes and binoculars are highly recommended. This tour will be led by a restoration specialist and biologist. Bonita Creek – May 11, 2013 The 21-acre Bonita Creek Channel is the main wildlife link from

Upper Newport Bay to the San Joaquin Hills. It was restored with construction of the 73 Toll Road from a narrow rip-rap lined ditch and underground culverts to a viable riparian habitat rich with wildlife. This easy three-mile guided walk will be primarily on a paved path and will include a walk along San Diego Creek to a restored saltwater marsh. Bird watchers will see wetland and coastal sage scrub bird species and the hike will focus on plants and the methods used to restore the creek and riparian habitat. Binoculars are highly recommended for this walk. The tour will be led by a restoration specialist and biologist. Space is limited so reservations are required. Call (949) 754-3405 or email lmorgan@thetollroads.com to sign up.

Opening the games were popular local singer Tricia Freeman performing the national anthem, Camp Pendleton’s Color Guard. Lucas Ellinger of Dana Point, an 11-year-old Angels fan who is battling leukemia, threw out the first pitch. Umpires for both games were Craig Watkins and his sister-in-law, Gina Watkins. Players from all three teams posed for photos and signed autographs between and after the games.

The Red White and Blue Warriors is a south Orange County volunteer event management group that created this event in 2012 to support military veterans who use prosthetics.

loCal dEntist dr. miChaEl tEssiEr shows PatiEnts how to EnJoy thEir donuts and still kEEP thEir tEEth and gums in good shaPE “Everyone past the age of ten already knows that the residues from donuts, cakes, candies and those sugary drinks are going to be on the teeth all day, making cavities” says popular local dentist Dr. Michael Tessier .But rather than giving his patients along lecture and wagging his finger at them ,the good doctor often surprises them by offering them yet another sweet treat, saying “Here, try this instead .At my office, we also have a Tic-Tac- like sucky candy that is sweetened with xylitol, which coats the tooth surfaces with a decay-resistant biofilm. We highly recommend that for our patients going through orthodontic tooth straightening, or for anyone who is genetically pre-disposed to tooth decay.” Dr. Tessier adds; “Most people with busy lives find choosing the very best nutritious food is hard to do and sometimes we give in to the temptation of enjoying a doughnut instead of an apple or more nutritious fruit. Treating tooth decay today is nowhere near as onerous as it was when I was a kid. Most cavities can be filled using modern 21st century technology rather than the dreaded drill. Here in my dental office in Rancho Santa Margarita I use a laser! It quickly delivers a small, concentrated amount of energy to a very specific localized area in the space of a few minute visits; the patient is free of pain. Modern technology at its best! Regular visits to the dental office for tooth cleaning and routine inspections will prevent serious conditions from developing in your mouth and guarantee a long and happy relationship with your teeth. If you sometimes give in to a sweet-tooth temptation, don’t worry. For Tessier and his team of happy dental assistants are always there to save the day! As Dr. Tessier says,” I’m a Grandpa, and it is my duty, my prerogative to take my little guys out for a do-nut on occasion. But only on the weekend and only when they’ve also had something nutritious to eat. Please call my office at (949)-459-7212. If you need more information on this subject, or need to make an appointment. Dr. Michael Tessier’s Office is located at 28562 Oso at the intersection of Oso and Antonio parkway down the walkway from Starbucks and the do-nut shop- how ironic.

Light in Africa – Tanzania Trip, Part 1 by Kelly Bennett I left for Tanzania February 17th and returned March 8th; 20 days in Africa, not knowing what to expect and not knowing what I was doing. Although It was an amazing trip, something that you only experience once in a lifetime, I felt a calling to go - like a “I have to be here” feeling. Before I left, everyone said my life will be changed, well, they were right. What I saw and what I experienced brings me to tears every time I think about it. The children who are, by no fault of their own, brought into this world and then abandoned or orphaned. The families experiencing extreme poverty, sickness and depression because of the lack of having water and other basic needs. It all started last fall; I was covering an event for this column. It was about a man - Bonner Paddock who was being celebrated at a going away party as he was competing in the Iron Man Triathlon in Hawaii. You might remember him; in 2008 he was the first person with Cerebral Palsy to climb Mount Kilimanjaro - now he was going to be the first with CP to enter the Iron Man Contest. At this event, he introduced a lady by the name of Mama Lynn. Lynn Elliott is her name; her van just pulled up and as she came closer, she was pushing a girl in a wheel chair - Juliana - she just had surgery the day before. You see, Juliana was one of the children living at Light in Africa, a children’s home Mama Lynn founded in Tanzania, Juliana was brought here to have her legs amputated and then fitted with prosthetic legs. Mama Lynn’s story is quite amazing, as she cares for up to 300 children who are orphaned or abandoned, have HIV/AIDS and/or are physically or mentally challenged. I introduced myself and said I would love to have a cup of tea with her and learn about her organization. We met a few days later and talked for hours. I fell in love with her story and Light in Africa. I couldn’t believe the compassion, love and warmth coming from this amazing woman who - eleven years ago - sold everything she had and went to Africa because of a calling. There was something there - I had to get this story to the masses - so I jumped at the chance to get some press about this wonderful woman and what she’s doing for the children and people of Africa; especially about Juliana and her story of coming to America. While speaking to Mama Lynn that day and hearing her story and all the other stories she had to tell about her journey, every one of them being more fascinating than the next, I was captivated. I suggested that she write a book. She needs to tell her story! She needs to tell her Light in Africa story. I suggested a publisher that I knew for her to contact and explore if it would be a viable opportunity for her and them. She emailed them, they called – they chatted - and after a few emails and phone calls back and forth, they agreed to help and now want her to write her story! That’s where I come in. Mama Lynn is almost finished writing her story. I went to Light in Africa to learn everything I can about this nonprofit Light in Africa - about Tanzania - about the children and about Mama Lynn. I want to make sure I can tell this story to everyone who will listen; I want to get her the press she deserves and needs to tell the world about what she is doing and how it’s impacting the world. Travel with me and read about my adventures as next week, I’ll tell you about my “Extreme Massai Experience”, saving 7 week old twins and me running with the bulls! I want to make a difference - a change. If you’d like to make a donation or want more information about Light in Africa - you can visit www.LightInAfrica.org.

The two top contestants will advance to the State Pageant to compete for the title of Ms. Senior California in August 2013. The Pageant is open to women who have reached the “age of elegance” – 60 and up. The Pageant seeks to elevate Baby Boomer women as well as senior women, encouraging them to “stay vital and connected with life” and to be role models for their peers and younger generations. Pageant competition is based on an interview, modeling an evening gown, sharing of a philosophy of life statement, and talent. All interested contestants can contact Orange County Director, Pam Wheeler at (949) 241-4007, or email at pwheeler94@cox.net. The Pageant will take place on Saturday April 6, 2013 at 1:30 PM.

In honoring the 7 million+ Baby Boomers and seniors in California, the Pageant Program is hosting eight regional preliminary pageants around California, with the Orange County pageant being the third stop. The top two finalists from each preliminary pageant will advance to the State Pageant in August for the title of Ms. Senior California. In addition, Ms. Senior California will go, all expenses paid, to participate in the October 2013 Ms. Senior America Pageant in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Reigning Ms. Senior California, Elisabeth Howard from Topanga Canyon, went on to win Ms. Senior America at the 2012 Ms. Senior America Pageant. Ms. Howard is a graduate of the Juilliard School with a B.S. and M.S. in voice.

All contestants are also invited to become a member of the Cameo Club and to perform in the “Silver Girls Entertainment” group. Traveling around to large and small venues alike, these Entertainers delight audiences with their talent and by sharing their joy of life.

the lost art of dating revived in rancho by Melanie Hoopes Saturday, March 16, 2013, youth from over 25 congregations of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS), gathered at Santa Margarita Bell Tower for the annual Mormon Prom. Youth ages 16-18 from Laguna Niguel, Rancho Santa Margarita, Mission Viejo, San Clemente and Lake Forest areas attended along with their dates and friends. Dozens of green balloons decorated the hall, celebrating the “Emerald Ball” theme. Liz Forrest, president of the Rancho Santa Margarita Young Women, explains that so many congregations are included both to make it a more fun experience for the youth and to lessen the workload on the adults, all of whom are volunteers. “We want to provide them with a positive experience without the expense of school proms,” Forrester says. “We don’t allow sexualized dancing and insist on modest dress. Not only are these the standards of our Church, but the kids feel less intimidated in this kind of environment.” Megan Taylor of Trabuco Canyon, was particularly excited because the Emerald Ball will be not just her first prom, but her first date. The LDS church has for decades encouraged teens to date only after they turn 16. Taylor, a cheerleader at Mission Viejo High, celebrated this milestone last month and was excited to have a date for the prom. “I didn’t really ask my parents to go on a date before now,” Taylor says. “No dating before 16 has just always been the rule in our family.” Once they turn 16, however, youth of the church are encouraged to start dating. “We want them to learn appropriate social skills,” explains Sterling Brennan, president of the Santa Margarita congregations. “We want the young men to get used to the three P’s: plan, pay, and pair off, to consider their date’s preferences and know how to ask for a date rather than just text. We especially encourage couples to socialize in groups.” “About 80% of the youth are here with dates,” estimates Leslie Mortensen, Young Women’s President of the Mission Viejo LDS congregations. “We feel this event is successful in promoting the lost art of dating, of planning

for another’s enjoyment, and getting to know different people.” The event costs $15 per couple. “Paying is part of training for dating,” Mortensen says. Most of the youth attending dined in groups in parents’ homes. Tammy Bailey of Mission Viejo spearheads a dinner party each year, based on the prom’s theme. This year, she turned her home into the Emerald City, complete with yellow brick road, with dinner served by the Wizard of Oz cast. Youth chipped in $10 per couple to help pay for food. “Yes, it’s a lot of work, but really fun,” Bailey says. “No time spent on the youth is ever wasted.”

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 800-280-2832 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-12-528843-JP . Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney.
