Color your world: Quick, easy ways to brighten decor and wardrobe When spring and summer arrive, Mother Nature shows off her decorating skills, bringing vibrant color to the outdoors. The bounty of hues outside can inspire homeowners to liven up their own environments, too. Enjoying the colors of nature is free to all, and brightening your indoor environment and your wardrobe doesn’t have to cost a bundle, either. “Trends in fashion, design and pop culture are taking on more global influence, and of course, one thing that’s always in style is color,” says Brad Goreski, celebrity stylist and Post-it Brand Color Ambassador. Try these inexpensive, easy ways to bring color into your home, office or personal look this season. Brighten your wardrobe Color can be intimidating. Many of us tend to fall into a pattern of buying clothes in colors that we feel look good on us, and avoiding anything new that might be a fashion risk. Trying a new color, though, is a great way to update a wardrobe and liberate your color sense. Not sure where to begin? Goreski recommends “color blocking” blending two main colors in an outfit - as a can’t-miss tactic for brightening your outfit. Color blocking allows you to pair two bright colors for an upbeat look while avoiding the color clash that so many people fear.

“Stick with two colors that work well together,” Goreski advises. “Avoid too many different colors. Two colors work, but three or four would be too much and you’ll end up looking like a box of crayons.” For example, try a blouse in one color and a skirt in another. Then, continue those colors in your accessories. Elevate your office environment “Whether you have a home office or work outside the home, your office is where you get business done,” Goreski says. “But the business world is increasingly global in nature, and the colors in your office can be as well.” A quick, easy and cost-effective way to add color and organization to your environment is to introduce the Post-it Brand Colors of the World collection to your office. Four unique color palettes feature hues inspired by four global destinations, including New York City, Mykonos, Rio de Janeiro and Bangkok. Each palette draws on the trends, styles and cultures of the locations to add inspiring color to this office and organization staple. “The colors in this Post-it Brand collection transport you to new places, spark new ideas and allow you to express your personality and style - all while staying organized,”

Goreski says. More hues for home When the weather warms, it’s the perfect time to add color to your home decor. You can go as bold or traditional as your comfort level allows and still infuse a brighter, fresher feeling. Start by painting any room in which you want to create a new look. Choose a hue that speaks to your sense of style and fits the function of the room. For example, blues and greens are restive for bedroom decor, while yellows and reds impart energy to busy kitchens. If committing to a complete color change is uncomfortable for you, try creating an accent wall in a bright

color and paint the other three walls in a neutral hue - this can be a great compromise. Continue the theme of the accent wall throughout the rest of the room with accessories such as pillows, throws, rugs and lamp shades in the same hue or color family. In the same vein, updating accessories and window treatments can be a cost-effective, low-fear way to infuse new color into a room. By adding pops of color in items that are easy to change, you eliminate the risk of committing to a major change, and you also create flexibility to change a room’s look with each change in season.

skin care trends for a naturally glowing look

Looking to achieve naturally glowing skin, but have no clue where to begin? You are not alone. With today’s deluge of complex beauty treatments and seemingly endless beauty aisles, it’s time to simplify. Dr. Ellen Marmur, author of Simple Skin Beauty and spokesperson for Dove Advance Care Deodorant, helps us cut through the clutter with these dermatologist approved skin care trends. Natural Skin Beauty: In my practice, I see more and more women embracing a natural look when it comes to their beauty routine - limiting the amount of makeup and focusing intently on skin care. When it comes to achieving a naturally glowing look, my mantra is “protect, enhance and troubleshoot.” Protection begins with regularly cleansing the skin and replenishing its moisture to restore balance. Enhancing is where we get to embellish our best features by evening the skin tone using a light tinted powder and playing up the natural highlights of our face. For trouble spots, it’s important to treat only the affected area with a dermatologist recommended or prescribed treatment. Multi-Tasking Beauty Products: In a world where every minute counts, it’s not surprising that women are continually looking for ways to Page 2

streamline their morning routines. With advances in skin care technology, multi-tasking beauty products are rapidly increasing in popularity. These products are not only limited to makeup and moisturizers; they have now expanded into other categories such as deodorant. We do not always think of our underarms as being beautiful, but it’s an area that requires special attention and care. I suggest using New Dove Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant, which is the only deodorant formulated with NutriumMoisture to provide softer,

The Ladera Ranch News

smoother armpits in just three days. Plus, it offers 48-hour odor and wetness protection for confidence all-day long. Sunscreen Gets Glam: For years you have heard about the importance of sunscreen, but with natural skin beauty on the rise, it has now taken center stage. Sun protection is important 365 days a year to help keep wrinkles and discoloration at bay. Depending on how you apply your sunscreen, you may be getting only a fraction of the protection listed on the bottle. Therefore, I recommend

women opt for higher SPF protection - between SPF 30 and SPF 50 - and reapply every two hours or even more frequently when in direct sunlight, swimming or working out. Skin care doesn’t have to be complicated. These dermatologist approved beauty trends from Dr. Marmur will help you achieve better results with less hassle and confusion.

South Coast Repertory Celebrates the Close of Its 50th Season with Tartuffe The Play That Launched SCR Makes a Comeback. Fifty years ago, a band of young actors—led by a duo fresh out of San Francisco State—came together through a love of theatre. When they officially formed as a company, South Coast Repertory, the group’s first production was Molière’s classic, Tartuffe. As SCR concludes its 50th Season this year, it comes full circle with a new production of Tartuffe, directed by Dominique Serrand, May 9-June 8, on the Segerstrom Stage. Tickets are available at www.scr.org. “Dominique Serrand has a distinctive creative vision for Tartuffe that is dynamic and theatrical,” said Artistic Director Marc Masterson. “I’ve known him for more than two decades and appreciate that this new production of Moliere’s work is both a fitting homage to SCR’s very first production and an incredible re-imagining for the 21st century. I’m looking forward to giving our audiences the chance to experience this energetic classic.” “There’s no better way for South Coast Repertory to close this season than with the play that started it all for us, Tartuffe,” said Managing Director

Paula Tomei. “All season long, our loyal and generous Orange County community has shared in celebrating David and Martin’s founding vision and our bright future. We’re thankful for their undying support.” Serrand makes his SCR debut with Tartuffe. He is an actor, designer and director who was knighted by the French government. Serrand founded Theatre de la Jeune Lune in Minneapolis, Minn., and is renowned for his lush staging and reimagining of the classics. The set design for SCR’s production of Tartuffe is based upon Serrand’s earlier designs for the play in 1998 and 2006, which he described as “beautiful and monolithic.” Molière’s dark comedy follows Tartuffe, a clever man who knows how to work every angle. A family watches in astonishment as Orgon, the head of the household, falls under Tartuffe’s spell of ideal piety. With beautiful women like Elmire and Mariane in the family, it’s difficult for Tartuffe to keep his thoughts turned toward heaven. Tartuffe’s always got his eye on a prize and knows how to play the game--but will he win in the end?

The cast for Tartuffe includes Cate Scott Campbell, Christopher Carley, Steven Epp, Brian Hostenske, Nathan Keepers, Lenne Klingaman, Gregory Linington, Michael Manuel, Luverne Seifert, Suzanne Warmanen, Becca Lustgarten, James MacEwan, Callie Prendiville and Nick Slimmer. The design and creative team includes Dominique Serrand and Thomas Buderwitz, scenic design, from an original design by Serrand; Sonya Berlovitz, costume design; Marcus Dilliard, lighting design; Corinne Carillo, sound design; Joshua Marchesi, production manager; and Kathryn Davies, stage manager. Tartuffe is generously supported by Honorary Producers Bette and Wylie Aitken and Jean and Tim Weiss and

Corporate Honorary Producer Union Bank. Tartuffe is a co-production with Berkeley Repertory Theatre and Shakespeare Theatre Company, Washington, D.C. Tickets start at $22. Discounts are available for full-time students, patrons 25 years of age and under, fulltime educators, seniors and groups of 10 or more. For complete information, visit: www.scr.org. Related Information for Tartuffe Tickets: May be purchased online at www.scr.org, by phone at (714) 708-5555 or by visiting the box office at 655 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa. Performances run May 9-June 8. Ticket prices start at $22. Low-priced preview performances run May 9-15.

ELKS CINCO DE MAYO CELEBRATION

Over one hundred Elks members and guests attended the annual fundraiser for the Elks National Foundation. The Cinco De Meyo event raised $1600 for that Charity which funds Elks scholarships, veterans, youth programs and community grants. The festive event was chaired by Elks Leading Knight Camacho Alvarez and wife, Ladies Club President, Mary Ann. The Mariachi Guadalajara, and Folklorico Dancers Puro Corazon from Cal State Fullerton University (CSFU) provided the entertainment and Lambda Theta Alpha Sorority Sisters acted as servers. The Lodge made a donation to the school groups for their participation. Attendees enjoyed a catered dinner of Chile

Verde and Barbacoa with all the fixin’s and flan dessert. Decorations were by a team which included State Vice President Harvey Boelts and wife Betty, Lecturing Knight Greg Morgan, Chaplain Kevin Lindley, Ben Blair, Shirley Elliott, Jack and Sandy Jacobs, and Carol Bryan. Chairman Alvarez said of the event, “It is a labor of love to put on an event that supports the National Foundation which returns so much to our Lodge and to the community in the form of scholarships, grants, and financial aid to the disadvantaged.” Alvarez added, “To support that wonderful Foundation and have fun at the same time is what makes belonging to our Lodge so satisfying.”

Fast, frugal fall fix-ups The shorter, cooler days signal that it’s time to snuggle up inside the comfort of your home. If you discover your home could use a little pizazz, it only takes a few quick fixes, combined with creativity and elbow grease, to transform the rooms where you spend most of your time. In a weekend or less, you can make your home go from stale to striking. As you look around the house, ask yourself this, “If I could fix only one thing in each room, what would that be?” These answers are your quick fixes. Not all home decorating ideas require a great deal of time or money but can transform a tiredlooking room into something truly eye-catching. Study your foyer, for starters. It’s the first thing guests see when they enter your home. What can you do to make it more inviting? Maybe it needs a little more color. Add a colorful rug to the entry way and maybe a floral arrangement to the console by the front door. Or maybe less clutter? A small storage bench can reduce clutter - shoes, school bags and sports equipment - to a minimum and add a clean, inviting look to this first-impression space. If your house is like any other, the kitchen likely is the other main gathering place for both family and visiting friends. These high-traffic areas usually can use fresh paint more frequently than other rooms. While high-quality paints might cost more upfront, you’ll get a solid return on your investment because using a high-quality paint extends the time between repaints and keeps your room looking its best as long as possible. Paint companies have teamed up with your favorite local paint dealers to make color selecPage 4

tion nearly effortless. Most dealers now offer hundreds of color strips in sophisticated displays and some even offer actual paint samples - 2-ounce containers of paint tinted in popular colors so you can take it home and try it without the long-term commitment of buying a gallon or more. Next, what about your living room? Is it too austere? Does it sit unused? While it might be out of your budget to change the furniture, you can warm it up and make it a space where people want to sit and visit by getting rid of those formal, outdated window treatments. Dress windows with light blinds or sheer curtains that provide privacy but allow light to filter through. You might also want to rearrange the furniture into a grouping that’s less formal and more inviting. Chances are, you and your family think your family room is pretty great, but even your favorite lounging space always can use a little upgrading to keep it modern, fun and welcoming. One easy change for this often-used space is new throw pillows. Add a splash of fresh color to the familiar simply by swapping out pillows on couches and chairs or adding a nook of colorful floor pillows for family members who prefer to sprawl on the floor to watch TV and play video games. Or, if you feel your sofa looks tired and worn out, maybe you’d rather invest in a new slipcover to bring a fresh

look to the room and transform your old sofa into something new and special. New lamps also can update a room almost instantaneously. When you’re doing your fall upgrades, don’t forget the bathroom. For a small investment, you can transform the space with some fresh paint and a new faucet. If you’re looking for an even bigger change, you can accessorize it further with a mirror in a finish that matches the faucet, as well as coordinating robe hooks and towel bars. “Putting a fresh spin on any home’s decor doesn’t always mean you have to think big,” Prebel says. “Small changes can easily transform a space from boring to beautiful in less than a weekend, even on the tightest of budgets.”

With so many fitness trends, you might not think of walking as good exercise. If you’re not thrusting a kettlebell over your head, pushing a tractor trailer tire or shaking your hips to a Top 40 dance beat in a scheduled group class, you’re not cutting it, right? Well, not so fast. Walking is actually a great way to get in shape. In fact, if you walk often enough and fast enough, the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other can satisfy your body’s daily requirement for aerobic activity. Walking may just seem like an old method of exercise; it certainly is tried and true. But quite the opposite of outdated, it seems to be making a resurgence in the health, fitness and medical worlds as a low-cost solution to the nation’s ongoing health care crisis. Renowned medical expert Dr. Andrew Weil is an advocate of walking as a crucial method of preventative care. He advocates walking as a low-risk means to optimum health. “With a consistent, brisk walking routine, you can boost your immune system, help manage weight, improve your mood and help ease depression, as well as improve cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and prevent osteoporosis,” says Weil. “The additional benefits may be endless.” Regarded as a leader in the world of integrative medicine, Weil is part of a panel of experts with Vionic Innovation Lab, an innovative footwear company leading the way for proper foot health and active lifestyle solutions. With new products such

as the Zen walking shoe, Vionic offers podiatristdesigned technology in contemporary styles, providing an innovative support for anyone in need of a supportive shoe or sandal to start or improve her walking routine. The walking movement is growing: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that between 2005 and 2010, the number of adults who walked for 10 minutes or more at least once a week rose from 56 to 62 percent - an increase of almost 20 million people. Need more convincing reasons to walk onto the bandwagon? Here’s why walking for exercise is so ideal: * Walking is what your body is designed to do. *Among all forms of aerobic exercise, walking carries the least risk of injury. * You can walk almost anywhere, any time. * Nearly everyone can walk, and it’s something you can do throughout your life. * It’s free. * There’s no special skill, training, or equipment needed - all you need is the right footwear. The buzz about walking has even reached the stars. Fitness trainer to celebrities such as Kate Walsh, Pink and Stacey Kiebler, Juliet Kaska has been known to start many of

her high-profile clientele with a consistent walking routine. Also contributing to the Vionic Innovation lab as a lifestyle expert, Kaska recommends walking as a great baseline for any fitness program, but reminds her followers to “invest in a good pair of walking shoes. They will do wonders for your posture and joints. Minimizing the impact of each step. Look for lightweight flexible shoes and be sure to replace them often, especially if you’re walking every day.” As you develop your walking program, set your own pace. As a general rule, taking 10,000 steps a day is a great goal for improving your overall physical, emotional and mental fitness. But the journey, as they say, begins with a single step. There’s no better time than now to begin.

local dentist Michael tessier explains how Modern dental technology Quickly and easily whitens teeth Things bleach, or b e c o m e whiter through basically three mechanisms. Chlorine (think swimming pool), an oxidizing Dr. Michael Tessier reaction using any of several peroxides, reducing reactions, and sunlight. The colors in a stain or dye are the result of molecules containing chromophores. Peroxide-type oxidizers contain a weakly bonded pair of oxygen atoms. When the bond breaks, the two relatively reactive oxygen atoms change the chromophores to the extent that they no longer absorb visible light, making whatever the problem substance is appear white. Sunlight changes the chromophores via its reactive photons of the violet or ultraviolet wavelengths. Now, the surfaces of tooth-structure enamel are porous, and these pores are good places for substances containing chromophores to hide. These stain or yellow or make the teeth gray looking. Imagine coffee or cola or tea getting into those pores. When we whiten the teeth, whether

with the one hour Zoom 2 procedure in the office, or the take-home whitening kits where the whitening solution is held against the tooth structure by a custom-fitted clear plastic tray, or even the whitening toothpaste or whitening strips, the peroxide-based active ingredients get into the pores of the enamel to do their chromophorechanging thing, and the teeth return to their original color. The great thing about this kind of tooth whitening is that is doesn’t negatively impact the tooth structure at all. There are some people whose teeth are sensitive after the whitening procedure, but we’ve totally solved that problem. And, when we whiten someone’s teeth, and that person smiles more because they’re no longer embarrassed by their dingy old choppers, they get a free facelift because their previously littleused smile muscles get used more and so tone-up. Please don’t hesitate to call my office if you have any questions about this process, or any other of the modern technologies we can use to make your smile whiter and your day better.

The nation’s first bullet train, would take passengers from Los Angeles to San Francisco

Five months after a judge in Sacramento halted state financing for California’s bullet train dead in its tracks, Democrats are eyeing a plan that would fund the high-speed-rail line with proceeds from the state’s cap-and-trade program on carbon emissions. As envisioned, California’s $68 billion bullet-train system, the nation’s first, would take passengers from Los Angeles to San Francisco at speeds of more than 200 miles an hour. The project, though, has been beset by planning delays, fluctuating cost estimates and court challenges that have threatened to kill or delay it indefinitely. Gov. Jerry Brown has proposed using one-third of funds raised annually through cap-and-trade auctions to help pay for high-speed rail. State Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg has proposed using one-fifth of those funds. If some version of those proposals passes the Democrat-dominated legislature in coming months, the state says it will use the guaranteed funding to leverage various new sources of financing to quicken the pace of construction. “An ongoing revenue stream is very important to us, because that would allow us to use financing, whether it is some type of revenue bond or some other financing mechanism,” said Dan Richard, chairman of the California High-

Speed Rail Authority. “We could build simultaneous sections, and when you are looking at a project that is of this magnitude…anything you can do to shorten that time frame or do things in parallel as opposed to in sequence is going to mean big savings.” The state’s cap-and-trade program, created in 2006, requires businesses that emit more than 25,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide to purchase credits for excess pollution. Through auctions, the state has sold more than $1.5 billion worth of carbon credits, raising $663 million for the state’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund, set aside for projects that reduce pollution and other goals. As the auctions grow, and more businesses are required to take part, they could raise anywhere between $12 billion and $45 billion through 2020, according to the state legislative analyst’s office. That office, however, has raised questions about using cap-and-trade dollars for the train, pointing out that during construction, the project would generate emissions rather than reduce them. Mr. Brown, a Democrat, has said using cap-andtrade dollars on the train is “very appropriate.” The High-Speed Rail Authority this past week outlined possibilities for putting cap-and-trade dollars to use. The state said it could tap federal loans through the Transportation

Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act or the Railroad Rehabilitation and Improvement Financing program. The state also said it could use private activity bonds, issued by a state for a public project for private users, as well as private sources such as bank loans, taxable bonds and equity investment. Securing cap-and-trade dollars for the project could give the state’s high-speed rail authority an important boost by providing a stable source of funding, experts said. Critics have assailed the authority for not identifying how the line would be paid for. “It would give the authority more credibility and, at least up to the amount guaranteed, they wouldn’t have to go begging the legislature for money every year,” said Louis S. Thompson, chairman of the California High-Speed Rail Peer Review Group, an independent overseer of the project. Opponents of the project argue the cap-and-trade dollars wouldn’t provide anywhere near the amount of money the project will require. “It sounds nice, but this is their only alternative,” said Michael Brady, an attorney representing plaintiffs challenging the train in court. “They have been cut off by the federal government…they have raised no money from private investors, and no local government has even put

up a dime.” High-speed rail has been a goal of Mr. Brown’s since his first go-round as California governor more than three decades ago. Before Mr. Brown was elected governor again in 2010, voters approved $9.95 billion worth of bonds for the train in 2008. The Obama administration contributed $3.3 billion in stimulus dollars. But the state’s ambitions have been stymied by opposition from farmers in the state’s rural Central Valley, who don’t want the project built across their land. Access to the state bond money has been blocked by a Sacramento Superior Court judge who ruled last year that the state had to rescind its 2012 draft business plan and couldn’t issue $8 billion worth of bonds. The Brown administration has appealed those decisions at the state’s Third District Court of Appeal, and oral arguments are expected to be scheduled soon. A trial in a lower court is also expected this summer over whether the train can deliver passengers between Los Angeles and San Francisco fast enough, and whether the train can operate without a subsidy. No order to halt work on the project has been issued, however, so the administration is moving forward on plans to start construction of an initial 30-mile stretch of track in the Central Valley.

Elks Lodge #2444 was the scene of a tribute to Saddleback Valley area youngsters excelling in academics, sports, and scouting. Attendees were treated to a hot dog and hamburger picnic dinner before the start of the program. Lodge President Derek Randles welcomed the recipients, their families and area dignitaries. Boy Scouts from Troop 603 presented the colors and Lodge Chaplain Kevin Hughes led the prayer. President Randles introduced Mayor Trish Kelly who congratulated the award recipients and read a proclamation from the City of Mission Viejo recognizing the Elks and declaring the week as Elks National Youth Week. Past Elks Lodge President and Youth Activities Chairman Pat Martino acted as master of ceremonies. Past Lodge Presidents Irene Romero and Charlie Hart presented awards to essay contest winners from the Saddleback and Capistrano Valley School Districts. They were: Benjamin Geisheimer, Katherine Gonzales, and Cesar Najera 5th & 6th grade. Victoria Cathcart, Alyssa Koliha, and Madison Thomas 7th & 8th grade.

CHOC Follies XVII “CHOCTON Abbey” Exceeds Fundraising Goal CHOC Follies XVII’s original musical production of “CHOCTON Abbey, the Musical Ups and Downs of Orange County High Life” had more than 2,200 people attend during three days of performances held at the Robert B. Moore Theatre in Costa Mesa. The performance featured an amazing cast and crew who have generously donated their time and talent to support CHOC Children’s. Proceeds from the 2014 CHOC Follies are designated to support the Child Life department’s Art and Music Therapies programs. The primary goal of the Child Life department is to promote optimum development of children and families, minimize stress and anxiety and to maintain a normal living standard. Art and Music Therapies strive to promote positive coping and emotional expression through art and music. Over the past 17 years, more than 1,428 cast members have entertained people in 68 performances of the Follies, netting over $7 million for CHOC Children’s. This year’s production, “CHOCTON Abbey,” was a hilarious, lighthearted send-up of the wildly popular PBS series, “Downton Abbey,” brought to life onstage by nearly 100 of Orange County’s prominent business and civic leaders. “I want to thank our amazing co-producer, Lois Augustine; our co-chairs, Sandy Segerstrom Daniels, Dale Skiles and Sueann Cross and our wonderful artistic team of all 17 years, director John Vaughan, music director Doug Austin, and choreographer Lee Martino,” said Founder and Executive Producer Gloria Zigner. “I also want to express my deep appreciation of our cast of thousands of talented Orange County members of the community who have performed over the years, and our generous sponsors and donors.” The play was a hit with the various characters portrayed; folks such as Louis Berlin who played Senator Tustin Crawford and his wife Dora Crawford, played by Mia Maffei. Victoria Groskreutz was Tustin’s mother, Lavender “Granny” Crawford, she was a hoot! Of course, at the end of the show, the whole cast broke out in song to “Love in Any Language” while photos of children at CHOC were played on the screen behind them. It made awareness to the audience that life at CHOC is real, the funds that are generated with these performances go to the kids and the folks that put on this show, are dedicated. There were testimonies from parents who not only were in the show but could talk about how their children were at CHOC. The care and love they received while their children were sick made being in the show so worthwhile, their hearts were truly in and they the audience was blessed by their performance. Founded by Executive Producer Gloria Zigner in 1997, the CHOC Follies has mobilized thousands of Orange County residents to sing, dance and delight audiences with hilarious original musical comedies year after year. Netting $7 million to date in donations for CHOC Children’s, the CHOC Follies has become a powerful Orange County institution in its own right. Named one of the best children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report (2012-2013) and a 2013 Leapfrog Top Hospital, CHOC Children’s is exclusively committed to the health and well-being of children through clinical expertise, advocacy, outreach and research that brings advanced treatment to pediatric patients. Affiliated with the University of California, Irvine, CHOC’s regional healthcare network includes two state-of-the-art hospitals in Orange and Mission Viejo, several primary and specialty care clinics, a pediatric residency program, and four centers of excellence - The CHOC Children’s Heart, Neuroscience, Orthopaedic and Hyundai Cancer Institutes.

Beat the heat and save some green with these warm weather energy saving ideas

There are plenty of reasons to be excited that winter is finally over. Among them: no more slick roads, heavy jackets, freezing temperatures or dry skin. Spring’s arrival also means an end to those expensive heating bills you paid all season. But just because warmer weather is here doesn’t mean your bills are gone. In fact, if your home isn’t as energy efficient as it could be, your summer cooling bills could be just as costly. If you’d like to make a change, here’s how you can invest in your home to increase its value, make it more energy efficient, improve your comfort, and save money in the long run. * Make sure your system is running properly. Any plan to improve energy efficiency in your home should start with a thorough review of your heating and cooling system. Sealing leaky ducts can improve your cooling efficiency by 20 percent. That means big savings on your monthly cooling bills. * Invest in new windows. Replacing your current windows with new products like Mezzo Windows from Alside offers you the chance to meet 2015 ENERGY STAR requirements

today. Mezzo’s dual-pane insulated glass helps prevent cool air from leaving your home and warm air from entering, making your home more energy efficient. Its narrowline frame provides a larger glass area for unobstructed views and an extensive collection of color and grid options mean Mezzo fits most any architectural style. * Replace outdated incandescent light bulbs in your home with ENERGY STAR qualified light bulbs. These bulbs have a longer shelf life and are 75 percent more energy efficient than traditional bulbs. Replacing every bulb in your home with an ENERGY STAR bulb will lead to big energy savings in the months and years ahead. * Make sure your home’s envelope is secure. Your home’s envelope includes its outer walls, ceiling, windows and floors. Consider the benefits of insulated siding products. Prodigy Insulated Siding from Alside is up to 1.5 inches thick, making it an exceptional option to improve the R-value of your exterior walls which can help you save energy and money. In addition, the siding’s clean lines and wide array of rich colors offer your

SPECIAL SALE GOING ON

home a modern look that increases its curb appeal. * Get audited. No one wants to be financially audited, but inviting an energy auditor to your home allows you to explore new energy-saving options. Your energy auditor will evaluate your home and offer you cost-effective measures to help you save energy and money. Expect to pay a small fee up front for the assessment, but you will easily

recoup that money by acting on the information you receive. Warmer weather doesn’t need to equal higher energy bills. Following these tips can help lower your energy expenses and improve the look of your home at the same time. To learn more about how new, lowmaintenance windows and siding can increase your home’s energy efficiency and curb appeal, visit alside.com.

Sure-grow guidance for first-time gardeners Each year, thousands of first-timers will join the millions of seasoned gardeners who already know the satisfaction of picking a perfect tomato at its peak, serving up salads from greens just grown right outside the back door, or harvesting home-grown peppers and specialty herbs never even seen at the grocery store. Most of us want that home-grown, healthy goodness that veggie and herb gardens provide, but sometimes it’s hard to figure out just where to start. Diligent effort and smart investment can result in less-than-expected results, but starting your own produce plot and reaping its rewards is not out of your reach. Even a small garden can fill your table with fresh, nutritious food, and help save money, too. In addition to the satisfaction you’ll get from growing your own food, gardening delivers a host of other health benefits, from lowimpact exercise to boosting vitamin D levels with the hours you’ll spend in the sunshine. Whether you start with a few containers on your patio, create a raised bed in a side yard or go big and plant a grand victory garden, gardening can be easy if you start with these six simple steps. Step 1 – Pick transplants While every plant starts from a seed, transplants make establishing your garden easier, and help ensure better success. Transplants, like Bonnie Plants which are grown regionally across the country and available at most garden retailers, nationwide, can trim six to eight weeks off growing time, and allow you to skip over the hard part of the growing process when plants are most vulnerable – so they’re more likely to survive and thrive. Bonnie Plants offers a wide variety of veggies and herbs, available in biodegradable pots, making the selection process easy. Plant what you eat and try some easy-to-grow favorites, like these: * Easy herbs – The volatile oils that make herbs valuable in cooking also naturally repel many insects and garden pests. Try basils, parsley, rosemary and something new, like grapefruit mint, which tastes as refreshing as it sounds. * Bell peppers – You’ll find the Bell peppers grown in your own backyard will taste sweeter than those bought from your grocer. Harvest them green or red, when vitamin levels are higher. Bonnie offers the classic “Bonnie Bell,” that’s a productive proven winner. * Eggplant –Eggplant thrives in hot weather. Try easy grow “Black Beauty” or something different like the whiteskinned “Cloud Nine.” Page 14

* Lettuce – Go for “leaf” lettuces like “Buttercrunch,” “Red Sails,” or Romaine. They’ll tolerate more heat than head lettuces and if you keep picking the leaves you’ll get multiple harvests. * Summer squash – Squash are easy-grow too, and very productive. Try zucchini “Black Beauty” or newfor-2013 Golden Scallop Patty Pan Squash. Many gardeners call this the flying saucer squash because of its unique shape. The flavor is delicate and mild, similar to zucchini. * Tomatoes – These crimson favorites are the most popular backyard vegetable. Choose disease-resistant “Better Boy,” “Bonnie Original” or the extra-easy cherry tomato “Sweet 100.” Step 2 – Location, location, location Be sure the spot you choose for your plants gets six to eight hours of sun. Sun-deprived plants won’t bear as much fruit and are more vulnerable to insects and stress. Step 3 - Suitable soil –Success starts with the soil. Most vegetables do well in moist, well-drained soil that’s rich in organic matter like compost or peat moss. Adding organic material loosens stiff soil, helps retain moisture and nourishes important soil organisms. Step 4: Feed your food– All edible plants remove some nutrients from the soil, and can quickly exhaust soil without the help of a fertilizer. Since one of the reasons for growing your own vegetables is to control exactly what your family consumes, be sure to use all-natural, safe products like Bonnie Plant Food, which is derived from oilseed extract such as soybean seed extract. Research shows plants are healthier and more vigorous using organically based foods, rather than chemical based options. Step 5 Water well – Most vegetables aren’t drought tolerant, so you’ll need to water them regularly. The closer your garden is to a water source, the easier it will be to keep plants hydrated .One inch of water weekly is adequate for most vegetables. Step 6 Pest patrol–Let natural predators fight your battles, handpick pests or dislodge them with a jet of water. If you spray, do it late in the day when beneficial insects are less active. You can find plenty of resources to help guide you through the planting process, from websites like www.bonnieplants.com to your local community college’s agricultural extension. Read up, watch videos, take a class and get your hands dirty.
