Memorial Day Table Setting Ideas Memorial Day is great time to celebrate and have fun! We often gather for and plan parties, lunches, events or dinners on this wonderful occasion. It is nice to present our food and drinks on a wonderfully decorated table. If you are hosting such an event, here are some great tips for decorating your table on Memorial Day! My first and favorite choice is the red, white and blue table setting. This is a pretty and colorful way to show your Memorial Day spirit! This table setting idea has many variations that you can choose from! You can use a red table cloth, blue table cloth or white table cloth for this table setting. My favorite is the red table cloth. It does not show spills and stands out. I like to use white plates. If it is an informal gathering or party, white paper plates can be used, though I recommend the plastic plates or sturdiest plates you can find. This will make your guests more comfortable and they will be less likely to spill their plate. Use white napkins. This can be paper napkins or cloth ones. Serve the beverages in blue cups. They can be blue plastic cups or blue glasses. The effect of the white plates, white napkins and blue cups look very nice on a red tablecloth. Add a beautiful

basket or vase of red, white and blue carnations in the center of the table. I like to use silk flowers. If you like, you can use real red and white carnations. For an added touch, place small flags in the vase or basket, among the flowers! If you decide to use a blue table cloth, use red or white plates, white napkins and blue or red plastic cups or clear cups or clear glasses. If you use a white table cloth, red plates, white napkins and blue cups or glasses look wonderful. For silverware, any type can go with this idea, even white plastic. This Memorial Day table setting is easy to set up and very affordable. It looks great! For a Spring like look that is festive and very pretty, use a flowered table cloth. For plates, the color choice is white, napkins can be white and the beverages can be served in clear plastic cups or clear glasses. Use silverware or white plastic ware. A large vase of all different types and colors of flowers look great in the center of this table setting. You can also just use white carnations in a basket. This table setting is colorful, attractive and very easy to do. It is very nice and makes a great Memorial Day table setting, if you do not wish to use the red, white and blue color theme. For an outdoor gathering, a red

and white checkered table cloth looks very festive with white plates, white napkins, white plastic ware and red or blue cups or glasses. My preference is using red cups or glasses. I like keeping to the red and white theme on this idea. It looks fancy, yet simple. I add a basket or vase of red and white carnations to the center of the table and it gives the table setting a fun and fancy look. This Memorial Day table setting is sure to please! Depending on how much money you want to spend, you can find many Memorial Day themed table cloths to buy. Some are flag themed and some are red, white and blue checkers, stripes or a mix. If you use these, use white napkins, white plates, white plastic ware or silverware, and blue cups or blue glasses. Place a basket or vase of white carnations in the

center of the table. You can also place small flags in the flower arrangement. This table setting idea is creative and looks great! These Memorial Day table setting ideas are sure to make your holiday table look special. They are very easy to do and cost very little. Your table will look beautiful, festive and fun!

Why Do We Celebrate Memorial Day? The History of Memorial Day by Amanda Austin Memorial Day is more than just a weekend off from work, an excuse to throw a picnic, or a reason to take a weekend trip, it is a national holiday. The history behind Memorial Day seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle throughout the years. With May 27th growing closer, take time to familiarize yourself with the history of Memorial Day, and why we celebrate this holiday. Memorial Day, originally known as “Decoration Day,” was established on May 5 1868 by General John Logan, the national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic. The first observation of Memorial Day took place on May 30th 1868, by decorating the graves of fallen Union and Confederate soldiers in Arlington National Cemetery. Here is an excerpt from General Logan’s “General Orders No. 11,” officially declaring “Decoration Day.” “The 30th day of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, vil-

lage, and hamlet church-yard in the land. In this observance no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit.” New York was the first state to officially recognize Memorial Day as a Holiday in 1873, and all of the Northern states had followed suit by 1890. The Southern states didn’t recognize Memorial Day until after World War 1 when it was changed from recognizing soldiers who lost their lives fighting in the Civil War, to soldiers who lost their lives fighting in any war America participated in. The reason that students and employees are given the day off on Memorial Day, is so they can properly

observe the holiday. When the holiday was originally established nationally it was intended to give patrons the opportunity to visit the graves of our fallen soldiers, attend memorials, fly the American flag at half staff until noon, and acknowledge the “National Moment of Remembrance” at 3:00 PM. The “National Moment of Remembrance” is when everyone has a moment of silence and if you are in a public place “Taps” is played. So, this year on Memorial weekend

take a moment to remember why you don’t have to go to work or school. If you are taking a trip with your family, make your rest stop at a memorial or Veteran’s cemetery and observe the men who have fought for our country. If you are having a get together at your home, or attend one at someone else’s home, give a little speech at 3:00 and call for a moment of silence to remind your friends and family why you are all able to get together that weekend.

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.

When visiting one of D.C.’s most popular monuments, one is likely to notice a few people in yellow hats, talking to visitors and answering questions about the history of the 30-year old monument. Charlie Harootunian is one of those volunteers. A veteran of the war himself, he served with the II Corps in the Central Highlands of Vietnam for a year in 1967-68. He started working at The Wall in 1986, just four years after the wall was built.. “When I first started, we would see the children of those names,” he reveals. “Now we are seeing the grandchildren.” Under his arm is tucked a copy of a directory, which he uses to help people find specific names on The Wall’s dozens of panels. He also carries a supply of paper and pencils to help visitors create etchings if they wish. “We see thousands of people every day, young and old, and lots of international visitors,” Charlie said. I was surprised to learn that Charlie isn’t a local - he travels from his home in Massachusetts to spend a weekend at the Wall. He assures me that this isn’t unusual. A volunteer named Nancy, who worked with the Red Cross during the Vietnam war, travels thousands of miles from Alaska each year to spend some time educating visitors. Her brother’s name is carved in one of the center panels, where she will tell her stories to those willing to listen. Nancy is expected to join them to welcome the huge crowds drawn by Memorial Day weekend. A ceremony will be held at the monument, but the day’s biggest event will be “Rolling Thunder,” a gathering of motorcycle

enthusiasts who ride in honor of veterans everywhere. Groups such as the Patriot Guard Riders and the Combat Motorcycle Veterans of America will participate. A number of “Gold Star Mothers,” a term given to those who have lost a son or daughter in armed conflict, will lead the procession. “It keeps getting bigger every single year,” Charlie says enthusiastically.

If all else fails, immortality can be assured By a spectacular error. -John Kenneth Galbraith The Ladera Ranch News

loCal ranCho SanTa MargariTa area DenTiST Dr. MiChael TeSSier reVealS Why he loVeS hiS WorK When we asked local dentist Dr. Michael Te s s i e r why he is always so cheerful, He replied: “because I love my work. What Dr. Michael Tessier I do makes people feel better and look better. What could be better than that? And, almost on a daily basis, my practice is finding new ways to take care of people. ”Dr. Tessier continued. “My office uses the latest in scientific dental advancements such as toothstraightening without metal braces (“Invisalign”); Tooth-colored porcelain crowns that have no metal in them and are subsequently dramatically more attractive and natural looking than the old porcelain-baked-on-to-metal type. I also recommend Porcelain veneers that, with a minimum of tooth structure removal, improve alignment, color, and evenness of front teeth, a process that is accomplished in a remarkably small amount of time. There are so many new scientific dental innovations that modern dentistry is a pleasure for me to practice. I often use a tiny “sandblaster” to do many of our smaller fillings, allowing us to do those fillings without discomfort and subsequently without anesthetic altogether. Another remarkable tool we use is the laser .We treat canker

or cold sores with a laser, dramatically shortening their life and the discomfort they cause. We do gum surgery with a laser (Periolase), not a knife, which is much more effective and greatly reduces any discomfort. Today Removable dentures can be anchored to implants, preventing them from moving and restoring more normal chewing. Another wonderful innovation is Implant crowns, which allow us to replace missing teeth without damaging the teeth on either side of the space where the tooth was originally located. We make an intra-oral appliance that keeps the lower jaw forward during sleep, reducing sleep apnea and all the other problems that the cessation of breathing at night can cause. I’ve been in private practice in Saddleback Valley since 1980 when I got out of the Navy. When the situation arises that we need a specialist, like an oral surgeon for wisdom extraction, or endodontists (root canal specialists), or periodontists (gum specialists) to save jeopardized teeth, I’m on a “first-name” basis with the best in all of those fields, who are all close by. We’re all living longer, and we’ll need our teeth longer. So it is my pleasure to have all of these good things we can do to make that happen. It’s better to have teeth left at the end of your life, rather than life left at the end of your teeth. Dr. Michael Tessier’s Office is located at 28562 Oso parkway at the intersection of Oso and Antonio parkways in the retail center near the Carwash and Starbucks the telephone number is (949)-459-7212.

tree or shrub. Discourage snakes by removing piles of boards or rocks around the home. Use caution when removing those piles - there may already be a snake there. Encouraging and protecting natural competitors like gopher snakes, kingsnakes and racers will reduce the rattlesnake population in the immediate area. And, kingsnakes actually kill and eat rattlesnakes.

Great Basin

Is it a rattlesnake?

Many a useful and non-threatening snake has suffered a quick death from a frantic human who has mistakenly identified a gopher snake, garter, racer or other as a rattlesnake. This usually happens when a snake assumes an instinctual defensive position used to bluff adversaries. A gopher snake has the added unfortunate trait of imitating a rattlesnake by flattening its head and body, vibrating its tail, hissing and actually striking if approached too closely. A rattlesnake is a heavy-bodied, blunt-tailed snake with one or more rattles on the tail. It has a triangularshaped head, much broader at the back than at the front, and a distinct “neck” region. The rattlesnake also has openings between the nostrils and eyes, which is a heat-sensing pit. The eyes are hooded with elliptical pupils. Additional identifying characteristics include a series of dark and light bands near the tail, just before the rattles which are different from the markings on the rest of the body. Also note that rattles may not always be present, as they are often lost through breakage and are not always developed on the young.

Southern Pacific

What to do in the event of a snake bite

Though uncommon, rattlesnake bites do occur, so have a plan in place for responding to any situation. Carry a portable phone, hike with a companion who can assist in an emergency, and make sure that family or friends know where you are going and when you will be checking in. The first thing to do if bitten is to stay calm. Generally, the most serious effect of a rattlesnake bite to an adult is local tissue damage which needs to be treated. Children, because they are smaller, are in more danger if they are bitten. Get to a doctor as soon as possible, but stay calm. Frenetic, high-speed driving places the victim at greater risk of an accident and increased heart rate. If the doctor is more than 30 minutes away, keep the bite below the heart, and then try to get to the doctor as quickly as possible.

The California Poison Control Center advises:

Stay calm Wash the bite area gently with soap and water Mojave Remove watches, rings, etc, which may constrict swelling Keeping snakes out of the Immobilize the affected area yard Transport safely to the nearest The best protection against rattle- medical facility snakes in the yard is a “rattlesnake proof” fence. It can be expensive and requires maintenance, however. The fence should either be solid or with mesh no larger than one-quarter inch. It should be at least three feet high with the bottom buried a few inches in the ground. Slanting your snake fence outward about a 30-degree angle will help. Vegetation should be kept away from the fence since the snake Western Diamondback could crawl to the top of an adjacent

About 248 registered participants and 42 teams have already raised $59,200 for the June 1-2 Mission Viejo-based Relay For Life at Saddleback College. With the countdown on to the American Cancer Society event, organizers are hopeful Relay will raise $113,000 for this worthy cause. More teams are sought to take part in this fun-filled overnight event designed to celebrate survivorship and raise money for research and programs. During Relay For Life, team members will take turns walking or running laps. At nightfall, hundreds of luminaries are lit in a moving ceremony to honor cancer survivors and remember those who lost their battle to the disease. Relay features food, games and activities that provide entertainment and build camaraderie. It is a family-friendly environment for the entire community. Folks can have fun while supporting a great cause. Teams can register online or sign up on Saturday, June 1. Cancer survivors and caregivers are invited to walk the first lap at the event, which will feature a host of family and children activities. Information about Relay for Life is available at www.mvrelay.org. The Ladera Ranch News

KSBR Birthday Bash Jazz Festival Announces Line-Up Saddleback College Radio Station KSBR (88.5 FM) is proud to announce that Spencer Day, Jackiem Joyner, Keiko Matsui, Bill Cantos, Chris Standring and Sarah Gazarek will be among the more than 30 musicians appearing at this year’s KSBR Birthday Bash Jazz Festival. The Birthday Bash takes place this Sunday, May 26, 2013 on the Village Green of Oso Viejo Park in Mission Viejo. Some of the other artists appearing at this year’s event include trumpeter and one of the founders of Tower of Power, Greg Adams and two-time Grammy Award winner Paul Brown. As always, there will be at least seven very special guests who, because of contractual obligations, cannot be announced until they come on stage. Previous surprise artists have included Dave Koz, Mindi Abair, Patti Austin, Chris Botti, Larry Carlton, Brian Culbertson, Bob James, Boney James, Joe Sample, Tom Scott, and Peter White. “At most festivals, one band takes the stage, followed by a break, and then another band, and so forth. But, at the Bash, the headliners leave their bands behind and play with each other in an all-star musical party,” according to Saddleback College Broadcast Services Director Terry Wedel. The concert is co-sponsored by the City of Mission Viejo. This will be the 25th year of the station’s largest fundraising event, and it celebrates the 35th anniversary of jazz on KSBR (88.5 FM). Organizers are excited to announce the second annual Taste of the Bash, which was a wildly successful element introduced last year and will again feature more than 20 restaurants showing off their finest creations. The Taste is an added value so those purchasing tickets to the concert will be admitted to the Taste of the Bash for no additional charge. The Birthday Bash is the major fundraising event for KSBR, Mission Viejo’s own community radio station at Saddleback College. Some of the restaurants that are confirmed to serve are 2nd Floor Restaurant in Huntington Beach, California Pizza Kitchen in Mission Viejo, Acapulco Restaurant in Orange, Sundried Tomato in San Juan Capistrano, Bistro K in Laguna Niguel, Slater’s 50/50 in Lake Forest, Citrus Fresh Grill in Aliso Viejo, as well as wineries Hamilton Oaks Vineyards from Trabuco Canyon, Napa Cellars in Napa Valley and breweries Cismontane Beer in Rancho Santa Margarita and Hangar 24 Brewery in Redlands. More restaurants and wineries that will be at the Taste of the Bash can be found at www.ksbr.org. Platinum and Premium Gold VIP guests will be treated to a fine dining experience by Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen in Anaheim, Savannah Chop House in Dana Point, Delizie Ristorante in Mission Viejo, The Ranch Sports Grill in Ladera Ranch and Vintage Steak House in San Juan Capistrano; dessert will be provided by Tommy Bahama in Newport Beach and MegaLoad Chocolates. It’s a Grind Coffee in Mission Viejo will also be serving coffee. La Pan’s Catering in Mission Viejo, Ricardo’s Place in San Juan Capistrano, and Two Guys Grilling from Dana Point will be providing meals for the Bash All-Stars and their families. The event will include a special tribute to Veterans. Saddleback College’s Veterans Memorial is the most significant tribute to veterans at any community college campus in the nation. In recognition of this event and the role that the college’s VETS (Veterans Education and Transition Services) Center plays in the community, the festivities will include a color guard performance and a special musical tribute to kick off the concert. In addition, veterans and active military personnel may purchase general admission tickets for just $25 through the Saddleback College VETS Center (949) 582-4252. The Center is open Monday – Thursday 9am to 4:30pm and Friday 9am to 12 noon. Doors open at 3:30 pm; the Taste of the Bash will run from 3:30 P.M. to Page 12

Disabled “Theme Child” Introduced at California-Hawaii Elks 98th Convention in Anaheim In Anaheim, officers and members of Elks Lodges of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (“BPOE”) throughout California and Hawaii were introduced to their new “Theme Child”. Andrew Bowring (photo attached) will represent California – Hawaii Elks Association’s (“CHEA”) Major Project program through May 2014. CHEA is best known for its state-wide children’s vision testing program and support of children with disabilities through its Major Project program, affectionately referred to as the “Purple Pig.” Elk members fill a purple piggy bank with “A coin a day so children can walk, talk, see and play.” Erin Bowring went into premature labor at twenty (20) weeks. She was given little hope of the baby’s survival. But, she carried to term and on December 11, 2010 Andrew arrived as a nine pound five ounce healthy baby. Father James and sister Macie welcomed the new addition to the family. After several months, Andrew’s grandmother noticed Andrew was behind in motor skill development, which was confirmed through

testing. In Tehama County, physical therapy services are very limited so the Bowring’s were referred to the CHEA Major Project program. Within two weeks, Denise Wilson an Elks physical therapist visited the Bowring home. She outlined a physical therapy program to strengthen Andrew’s muscles. With the Denise and Bowring administered physical therapy, Andrew was soon able to sit up, crawl and eventually stand. Andrew was then diagnosed with a mild form of cerebral palsy. After using a “reverse” walker for a few months, leg braces helped him stand and walk. Physical therapy continues. Erin said, “The Elks program has been phenomenal when it came to adjusting therapy to our family’s busy needs. Having the program there for us has made life so much easier and has made accepting Andrew’s diagnosis of cerebral palsy easier to handle. We really want to say thank you very much for helping our family so much. The program has positively influenced our lives and we truly want to say thank you.” In addition to the gifts given to An-

drew on the convention’s stage, he was granted his wish to visit Disneyland. At a recent Orange Coast District Elks gathering, it was learned of Andrew’s desire to visit Disneyland. An impromptu passing of the hat with donations from the ten Orange Coast District Elks Lodges netted over $1,000, more than enough for the entire Bowring family and care giver to visit Disneyland. Following the introduction of Andrew and his family, the president’s of 172 Elks Lodges proceeded to the convention stage announcing their yearly lodge donations to the Major Project program. The donations to the Major Project totaled $3.023 million.

Headquarters for the CHEA is in Fresno with headquarters for the BPOE in Chicago. The BPOE is a charitable organization with a 145 year history of giving, “Elks Care, Elks Share.”

Elks Lodge Festive Carnival Delivers Comfort to Pediatric Oncology Patients On Sunday, May 19, 2012, Mission Viejo / Saddleback Valley Elks Lodge No. 2444 (“Elks Lodge”) held a festive carnival for Pediatric Oncology Patients and their families who are supported by Orange County Foundation for Oncology Children and Families (“OCF-OCF”). On this day, the children and their families could enjoy time away from the effects of their illnesses and chemotherapy, radiation and other medical treatments. After greetings from Batman, Superwoman, pirates and a clown, the children and their families gazed upon a ceiling filled with “clouds of colored balloons”. All children and their families were provided with a tote bag and a t-shirt with figures of two children holding hands saying, “We Have Friends at The Mission Viejo Elks Lodge”. The children quickly found the Elks Lodge patio and the colorful tent canopies where they immersed themselves into typical carnival games. At all of the game stations, each child won a prize for participation in that game. The animals from Saga Creek Petting Zoo of Trabuco Canyon were a big hit! Children could pet an adult and baby goat, a pig, a rabbit, baby chicks and baby ducks.

The children also enjoyed a bounce house, crafts and face painting. Even some parents had their face painted. All attendees enjoyed typical carnival food: lemonade, “SnoKones”, cotton candy, chicken fingers, corn dogs, French fries and sweets. In addition to game prizes and upon their departure, each child picked out a “special” gift from a selection of Nintendo DS games; Dolls (Barbie, Cinderella and Prince, etc); action figures; Disney Vinylmations; DVDs (Madagascar, Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, Spiderman, Quantum of Silence, GoldenEye, etc.), books and other assorted prizes. Event chairperson Stephanie Bongartz said, “Some of these children have been undergoing treatment for up to five years. It is heartwarming to see a child from a previous year return to the carnival with a full head

Additional funds for this event came from the Elks Lodge Bingo operation, Bongo Ink of Lake Forest and other fund raising events involving individual Elks Lodge members. Ninety (90) volunteers including fifteen (15) youth from Saddleback Valley area schools helped run the event. The Mission Viejo / Saddleback

Elks Lodge No. 2444, celebrating forty-three (43) years of service to the Saddleback Valley communities, is one of ten lodges in the Orange Coast District of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (BPOE) whose headquarters is in Chicago, Illinois. The BPOE is a charitable organization with a 145 year history of giving, “Elks Care, Elks Share.”

WWII Vets Provide First-Hand Perspective to SMCHS US History Class SMCHS History teacher Scott McIntosh and his World War II classes were given the opportunity to hear first-hand reflections from World War II veterans For the 5th consecutive year, History teacher Scott McIntosh provided his World War II classes the opportunity to hear first-hand experiences from three war veterans, from different military branches. Larry McCook, a retired member of the Marine Corps, has worked with McIntosh to bring veterans to SMCHS for the past 5 years as a chance to provide high school aged kids the opportunity to speak and listen to military personnel that lived and served during WWII, the very subject they are studying. McIntosh sees this this opportunity for his students as invaluable and something they will take with them forever. “Bringing the veterans in to class gives the students a first person account of what is was like for those who were there. The textbook and my lectures can’t provide them with that learning experience. Ultimately, this is the day that the students will remember for the rest of their lives long after they have forgotten all about my lectures and the assignments from the book.” This year, students listened to Captain Wes Wilson of the USMC, Seaman 1st Class Ernesto Schimmer of the US Navy, and Lieutenant Joe Onesty of the US Army Air Corp , which was the precursor to the Air Force. These veterans told tales of being engaged in Page 16

aerial combat, meeting their wife while in boot camp, and seeing the world at the ripe age of 17. Lieutenant Onesty remembered taking his entrance test into the US Army Air Corp before turning age 18; Seaman 1st Class recanted being a surfer from Santa Monica before deciding to join the US Navy, and Captain Wilson spoke

The Ladera Ranch News

about the different ranks he obtained during his 20+ years of service to our Country. All three men conveyed the same message during their time with the class which was to make sure the students remained healthy, take care of themselves, and to take the path that in the years to come will make them happy.
