Kentucky Derby 2013 Winner Predictions Twitter Accounts to Watch Naturally, everyone wants to be able to predict which horse will win the Kentucky Derby each year. However, only a few people advertised their 2012 Kentucky Derby contenders accurately. While there is no way a single person can be relied upon for this type of advice each year, it is helpful to follow the people that are most likely to define the horses that will be the Kentucky Derby 2013 winners. Do you think you know which horse is going to win the Kentucky Derby 2013? If so, do not forget to tweet your own predictions for the race with the popular hashtag #KYDerby. Unlikely source of Kentucky Derby predictions Although it was barely covered in the press, former Thoroughbred Times editor and horse racing picks expert, Ed DeRosa, sided with Kentucky Attorney General, Jack Conway. Conway correctly predicted that I’ll Have Another would win the 2012 Derby and made the announcement on his official Kentucky.gov website. He may have just been lucky, but, along with DeRosa, @ EJXD2, Conway’s Twitter account, @ ConwayforKy, might be one to watch for 2013 Kentucky Derby picks.

Pick experts that did their job There are many websites and social media outlets that have account users promising to give the best Kentucky Derby picks. Some of these resources are major news outlets and others are amateur horse racing handicappers that have strong opinions. Interestingly, one pick expert on Twitter delivered exactly what they promised. Before the 2012 Kentucky Derby began, @trifectabox predicted I’ll Have Another would win. For this reason, add them to your 2013 Kentucky Derby picks feed to see if they strike it big again this year. Official Twitter sources of the Kentucky Derby 2013 Churchill Downs has a variety of official oddsmakers, picks experts, horse racing specialists, and handicappers. While many of them failed to predict the winner of the 2012 Kentucky Derby, their advice is always crucial to making the best bet from the current 2013 Kentucky Derby contenders list. Some important accounts to add to your twitter feed include @DerbyMedia, @ TwinSpires, @ChurchillDowns, and @ KentuckyDerby. Experts that regularly add to the previously named Twitter accounts are

@JohnAsher and Mike Battalgia. One other important official source of Kentucky Derby related information comes from the Courier-Journal’s Jennie Rees. In addition to her own acclaimed work, the @CJ_Jennie Twitter feed includes articles from important horse racing news sources like Blood Horse, Daily Racing Form, and Thoroughbred Times. Amateur Kentucky Derby contenders information sources Major news sources are careful to inform their audience about key features concerning Kentucky Derby culture. Nevertheless, if you are a horse bettor, you will also want your news from an amateur handicapper’s point of view. For all of the finer details, links, and

videos of 2013 Kentucky Derby contenders, follow the Twitter accounts for @DerbyContenders, @ChasingTheDerby, and @Racing_Post. Kentucky Derby 2013 media coverage Network media companies all fight for the chance to have exclusive rights for broadcasting the Kentucky Derby. This year, the rights go to @NBC_Sports and @NBCSN. If you are looking for opinions and coverage feedback in video form, @HRTVinsider is an excellent resource. One final media-related Twitter account that you will want in your Kentucky Derby list is for America’s Best Racing (@ABRLive) sponsored by the American Jockey Club.

Mormon Helping Hands Donate Labor and Food By John Skousen Mormon Helping Hands volunteers got up early Saturday morning, April 27, 2013, to serve as the manpower for two big projects helping the local community in Rancho Santa Margarita, California. The “manpower” included men, women, and children. The two projects included a landscaping project at the Canada Vista Park and the other was a food drive for the Second Harvest Food Bank organized at the local chapel for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

At the park a total of 191 volunteers provided 287 hours, which included applying mulch material to a large dog park, planting decorative and landscaping plants along a bare area by the parking lot, and sanding and repainting several park benches. Cary Haine, Construction Project Coordinator for SAMLARC stated enthusiastically, “The manpower here is phenomenal!” He continued: “It’s a really great thing to get these families out here help. It gives everyone something to contribute, the kids, youth, and adults.” Haine also wanted to thank Mission Landscape Sammy Miyahara, from Rancho Santa Margarita, planting decorative and landscaping plants along the parking lot at Canada Vista in Rancho Santa Margarita.

that donated the mulch and plants. With such a large and well-organized work force, Haine confessed, “The challenge is to find more things to do.” And Mormon Helping Hands Organizer, Bethany Warnick, did find more to do by planning a food drive with the Second Harvest Food Bank. On the same Saturday morning, adult and youth volunteers collected food and hygiene items from their neighbors and brought them to the chapel to sort and organize. At the end of the

morning, the volunteers collected a total of twenty-three 55-gallon tubs of donations, which exceeded the original goal of 18 tubs. Whether working at Canada Vista Park or collecting and sorting the Food Bank donations, on Saturday the Mormon Helping Hands effort gave families an opportunity to have a good time working together while giving service to their local community.

by Teri Cooper Combine 12,000 baby wipes, 290 teenagers, 7 school libraries full of well-used books, and you have the 2013 annual youth conference for the Santa Margarita Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The youth conference theme was “Pay It Forward!” and teens (age 14–18) began preparing months ago. Each youth was asked to commit to perform 75 acts of service in 75 days in their homes, schools, and communities. They came together on April 19–21 for a culminating weekend of community service. On Saturday morning, the youth Left to Right: Sydney Schelin (Coto de Caza), Tyler Feist (Foothill Ranch) collected over 5,000 cans of food in and Abby Allen (RSM) cleaning books at the Melinda Heights Elementary conjunction with Families Forward, school library. Photographer: Annette Jones a local food bank. That afternoon, armed with baby wipes and paper towels, they spent two and a half hours cleaning hardcover library books at seven different Saddleback Valley Unified School District (SVUSD) schools: RSM Intermediate, Robinson Ranch, Trabuco Mesa, Cello Vista, Melinda Heights, Foothill Ranch and Portola Hills Elementary. “It was an outstanding show of support for the local schools and libraries. We so appreciate the community partnership,” commented Tammy Blakely, Director of Pupil Services at SVUSD. The teens cleaned thousands of books during the project. “It felt great to serve others. The books really needed cleaning, and I’m sure the kids will enjoy their reading experience much more now!” said 17-year-old Blake Miyahara from Rancho Santa Margarita, a conference participant. In summing up the youth conference, Teri Cooper, a church youth leader from Dove Canyon, reflected, “Activities like these help teens become contributing citizens in their communities. They’re going to remember this Left to Right: Brooke Tobler (RSM), Paige Sanford (Mission Viejo) weekend for a long time.” and Maddy Hannah (Mission Viejo) cleaning books at the Foothill Ranch Elementary School Library..

Elks Lodge Volunteers at Lake Mission Viejo’s Marine Appreciation Day Mission Viejo / Saddleback Valley Elks Lodge No. 2444 (“Elks Lodge”) supported Lake Mission Viejo’s Marine Appreciation Day. The Elks, led by its veterans chairman Andy Dumont, were volunteers of the Palmia and Casta Del Sol Military Veterans Clubs who donated the food, refreshments and children’s gifts. The Marines, Sailors and Air Group of the First Marine Division from Camp Pendleton and their families were given free admission to Lake Mission Viejo to enjoy the lake’s pleasures: a pontoon boat ride around the lake, a kayak “cruise”, swimming, some fishing and other lake activities. Each child could also select one gift from a selection of toy vehicles, dolls, DVDs, balls, board games or stuffed animals. The Elks provided soccer balls. The Marines enjoyed live music by Cappys Rock & Roll Band, a lunch of barbequed burgers, bratwurst and hot dogs, chips, cookies, cup

cakes, apples, oranges, water, juice, soda and other refreshments. The Elks volunteers also helped the many members of the Military Veteran’s Clubs with the barbeque. Other attractions included a bounce house and mechanical bull ride. 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.”

local dentist dr. Michael Tessier discusses sleep problems.

While local dentist Dr. Michael Tessier is well known for his exceptionally gentle and friendly care of children, cosmetic restorations for adults, and both conventional and Invisalign orthodontics, his office also focuses on his patients overall health. “I read an article the other day that said, in effect, sleep could be hazardous to your health. They were referring to sleep apnea, the cessation of breathing while sleeping. I was especially interested in this topic as my office provides significant relief for people who suffer from this particular discomfort,” said Dr. Tessier. “Sleep apnea can be caused by extra redundant tissue (fat) in the throat or neck which can reduce the diameter of or even cut-off the windpipe while one is in a relaxed sleep-state. It can also be caused by the lower jaw relaxing back into the neck, allowing the base of the tongue to lie on the windpipe, like a manhole cover, cutting off the air flow to the lungs. This causes the body to wake up enough to take a deep breath. These wake-ups are often gasps for air, and may even include sitting boltupright in bed, in a panic. Either of these restrictions can happen as many as fortyfive times a minute (yes, a minute) preventing deep, replenishing sleep, and causing a dramatic reduction in the amount of oxygen that gets into the blood stream. This oxygen reduction negatively impacts the brain, and is damaging or stressful to the heart muscle, and may be fatal in some cases. “Just the other day, I had a conversation with a clinical psychologist about the negative results of sleep deprivation, like from sleep apnea, or just plain too-few hours of sack-time. She said that the biggest issue is the replenishment of neuro–transmitters (chemicals in nerve connections ((synapses)) like serotonin, acetylcholine, or dopamine) that could, among other things, lead to depression. The conversation went to medicinal sleep aids, like Temazepam or Ambien. I asked if taking drugs like that would be habit forming on a long-term basis. The doctor was of the opinion that the negatives from sleep deprivation were worse than the negatives from long-term use of drugs. “An easier solution than drugs is often to use one of our sleep apnea appliances, which are simple, unobtrusive in-the-mouth appliances that keep the jaw forward and the base of the tongue off the windpipe (trachea). In more severe cases, use of a CPAP device, a positive-pressure air pump that keeps the windpipe open, might be indicated,” said Dr. Tessier. So, if you or the person sleeping next to you or your next-door neighbor is snoring loudly or waking-up gasping for air, a call to Dr. Tessier’s Office for a complimentary consultation appointment may be in order. 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.

Rancho Santa Margarita’s Standout Basketball Player Lauren Oosdyke Contemplates Her Future After College

Indefensible! Lauren Oosdyke (21) easily sidesteps defender and fires her deadly accurate mid-court scoring shot. Photo by Paul Dorweiler

By Laura Vallen, UNC For graduating college students, the month of May is filled with uncertainty as they choose to continue their education. Others move home for a while and many begin a career , but before Lauren Oosdyke has to make them she gets to do something most people her age only dream of. Oosdyke, a five-year veteran for the Northern Colorado Bears, is headed to China for a run with a United States All-Star team. The 22 year-old Oosdyke was raised in Coto de Caza, Calif. and graduated from Santa Margarita Catholic High School in May 2008. Following a standout career at SMCHS, including two straight placements on the Orange County All-Star First Team, she decided to leave the friendly confines of California and attend the University of Northern Colorado, a Division 1 school an hour north of Denver. Oosdyke’s career with the Bears has been one for the record books, literally. She ranks in the top five in Northern Colorado history in four different categories. She ranks second in free throws made (394), fourth in career scoring (1,548), fifth Page 8

in rebounding (763) and fifth in steals (183). While at UNC, she was the anchor to completely turn a losing program into a consecutive 20 game season winner the last three years. She will represent the US on a team touring China and competing against teams from Australia, China, and Brazil. She will be part of a team comprised of All Star players from around the nation who are graduating seniors. The team will stay in China from May 1-15 and play nine games during the stretch. Players from U. of Michigan, Purdue, Iowa, Gonzaga, Ill. State, Univ. Wisconsin. Greenbay and Iowa dot the roster with Oosdyke. Oosdyke left Northern Colorado not only in many of the school’s record books, but also prominently in the Big Sky Conference’s annals. She is ranked among the top 15 players of all time in the Big Sky Conference for field goal percentage, assists, free throw percentage and makes, steals, defensive rebounds and minutes played. As well-known as Oosdyke has become on the basketball court, she also has a solid academic reputation off the court. She graduated in May 2012 with bachelor degrees

The Ladera Ranch News

in both broadcast journalism and communications while earning Big Sky All-Academic honors throughout her college career. She was also a sports anchor for UNC’s news station, Bear News. In addition, Oosdyke was part of an internship program at CBS channel 4 in Denver in the sports department during the summer of 2011. In May 2013, Oosdyke will graduate with a master’s degree in sports administration, a Northern Colorado program that is ranked among the top five in the world . This semester, along with her master’s program and the commitment that basketball entails, Oosdyke took on an additional internship with the marketing team from Northern Colorado’s athletics department.Oosdyke will be interning with Learfield Sports Marketing in Boulder upon her return from China. Though Oosdyke’s life-long dream is to be a sports broadcaster and sideline reporter, she says she is ready to explore all the different opportunities she may have for the future. “Being an athlete in college has taught me a lot of things about time management, respect, determination and hard work,” Oosdyke says.

“I feel if I can get through five years of college basketball while completing my master’s degree and my undergraduate degree all at once, then I can get through anything..” Her family is her strength and foundation. The entire Oosdyke clan was often found sitting courtside during her games wherever they were. She says her dad is especially inspiring. “He works a ton of hours and so does my mom, but somehow my dad makes it to all of our games. He has pushed me to be the player I am today.”“My teammates are my 13 best friends,” Oosdyke says. In fact, she still desires to be a part of a team and has been speaking to agents about possibly playing overseas next year. But for now, her mind is focused on May 1st, when she will find herself in China. “I’m really excited to travel and see the different types of cities, food and people. I’m also excited to play with a group of girls that are great players from all across the country. It will be an incredible experience. Wherever I end up Rancho Santa Margarita will always be in my mind.”

Orange County Non-Profits Make Prom Dreams a Reality for At-Risk Teens Four Orange County-based non-profits teamed up to host the sixth an- A group of Belles show off their looks for prom night. nual ‘Belle of the Ball’ event at Orange Coast College. Girls Inc. of Orange County, Women Helping Women (WHW)/Men2Work, Orangewood Children’s Foundation and Orange Coast College collaborated to provide a day of empowerment which allowed over 330 at-risk teens and foster youth to receive the necessities in order to attend their prom or another special event in style and gleaming with confidence. The day started with breakfast and an inspiring kick-off message, followed by pre-prom shopping for their dress and accessories; a workshop on makeup, skin care, and hair styling for their big night, an interactive workshop on media literacy and fostering a positive body image; and a class on personal branding and presenting yourself professionally on social media. The entire day is provided absolutely free of charge to all attending girls with the help of over 300 volunteers from the Orange County community and Orange Coast College, who hosts the event each year. “It is important to equip our girls with the knowledge and confidence they will need to be successful beyond their prom night,” explained Veronica Escobedo, Director of Program Services at Girls Inc. of Orange County. “Today isn’t just about giving these girls a pretty dress; it’s about showing these girls that regardless of who you are or what you look like, every girl is beautiful.” Tina Aldatz, founder of Foot Petals and Orange County resident, delivered A volunteer from Classic Glamour Dolls provides one-on-one make-up instruction to one of the Belles the opening ceremonies’ keynote address to the 600+ attendees. “Don’t let your circumstances define the way you lead the rest of your life,” said Aldatz. “Today is an opportunity to learn, receive and continue to grow.” Over the course of eight months, a twenty-five person event committee consisting of representatives from each of the four agencies pooled their resources and secured over $500,000 worth of in-kind and financial sponsorships for the event. Top sponsors included DSW Shoes, Alfred Angelo, Cookie Lee, Hoyu America, Physician’s Formula, UPS, and National Charity League (Newport-Harbor). All in all, the teens were provided with a selection of 2,019 dresses, 1,224 pairs of shoes, 283 purses, 1,301 pieces of jewelry and 400 make-up goodie bags. One Belle exclaimed, “I feel like a princess!” Belle of the Ball was established in 2008 as a day of self-esteem for atrisk girls throughout Orange County. The goal was to allow young girls the opportunity to attend their high school prom despite their financial or social situations. Through the years, the event has served more than 1,100 girls and continues to grow.

The Festival of Arts - California’s Premier Fine Art Show Celebrates its 81st Season in Laguna Beach

The Festival of Arts - California’s Premier Fine Art Show Celebrates its 81st Season in Laguna Beach, California, June 30 through August 31, 2013 As California’s longest running outdoor fine art show and one of the nation’s most highly acclaimed and attended juried exhibitions, visitors and art connoisseurs can expect to find the highest echelon of art and artists at the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts. The Festival of Arts, California’s Premier Fine Art Show, returns June 30 through August 31, 2013, with 140 of Orange County’s most renowned artists. As California’s longest running outdoor fine art show and one of the nation’s most highly acclaimed and attended juried exhibitions, visitors and art connoisseurs can expect to find the highest echelon of art and artists at the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts. “Every year we are honored to feature the work of such incredibly talented artists at the Festival of Arts,” says Marketing and Public Relations Director Sharbie Higuchi. Visitors have an opportunity to view and purchase original paintings, sculpture, printmaking, photography, ceramics, jewelry, and furniture from artists around Orange County. Since opening in 1932, thousands have shown and sold their artwork at the Festival. Many Festival artists have their work featured in the private collections of leading art collectors, celebrities, and museums around the world. Throughout the eight-week festival, the Festival of Arts offers a wide range of daily activities that the whole family can enjoy. The 2013 events calendar includes nightly live music, jazz concerts, wine and chocolate pairings, cooking demonstrations, guided art tours, and art workshops. Several special one-day events return this year including the popular Festival Runway Fashion Show, and the Acura Celebrity Concert and Pageant Benefit. Page 14

In 2013, Sundays will feature a new musical series with an eclectic mix of music from Ethereal and Chill to Jazz/World/Classical fusion. From 2 – 4pm, Sunday in the Park will provide the perfect atmosphere to browsing the art gallery, picnics on the green, or simply sitting back and taking in the beautiful weather of Laguna Beach. “There’s something for everyone this year,” says Higuchi. “Visitors can view and purchase artwork, listen to an art tour, catch a demonstration, or just sit back and enjoy the live music. The Festival of Arts is the place to be this summer!” Free art tours are held Monday - Friday at 11 am and 3 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 11 am and

Said sale will be held on: MAY 23, 2013, AT 3:00 P.M. *ON THE FRONT STEPS TO THE ENTRANCE OF THE ORANGE CIVIC CENTER, 300 E.

It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. 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 (714) 480-5690 or (800) 843-0260 ext 5690 or visit this Internet Web site: http://www.tacforeclosures. com/sales, using the file number assigned to this case F539626 F. 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. 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 monies paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee or the Mortgagee’s attorney. Date: April 24, 2013 T.D. SERVICE COMPANY as said Trustee, T.D.

Kentucky Derby 2013 | Seeing celebrities is an old Derby Day tradition John Asher has seen lots of celebrities at the Kentucky Derby over the past 30 years, but one of the two biggest show-stoppers was actor Jack Nicholson in 1998. “Crowds halted and parted like the Red Sea wherever he went that day,” Asher, vice president of racing communications at Churchill Downs, said. The other was Britain’s Queen Elizabeth in 2007. “I think all members of our racetrack team felt that Derby Day was a bit more special than most,” he said. “And that’s saying something.” But even before the movie star and the queen’s visit, a who’s who of some of the world’s most famous faces has attended the Kentucky Derby. From Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford and both George Bushes — to Judy Garland, Babe Ruth and John Wayne — here’s a look back at some of the biggest stars who have been spotted at Churchill on Derby Day. • J. Edgar Hoover, the first director of the FBI, baseball legend Babe Ruth and boxer Jack Dempsey were both guests at the 1937 Kentucky Derby. • Pictured wearing flowers in her blond hair, a dark dress and chic black gloves, “Peyton Place” beauty Lana Turner was all smiles at the 1941 Run for the Roses, which she attended with legendary singer Tony Martin. • “The Wizard of Oz’s” Judy Garland was a guest in 1953. The day before the race, she told a Courier-Journal reporter she hadn’t decided what she was wearing, saying, “By golly, I haven’t thought much about that. If it is a dull, rather cool day, I’ll wear a suit. If it’s nice and bright, I’ll wear a light dress.” • Just a few months into his first year as president of the United States, Richard Nixon and his wife, Pat, came to the Kentucky Derby in 1969. The couple hung out at Churchill Downs with another famous duo — Ronald and Nancy Reagan. • In 1976, comedian Bob Hope (who came multiple times) and movie star John Wayne were among the VIPs. Wayne was also the Pegasus Parade grand marshal that year. • Former President Gerald Ford was a guest in 1987. • A-lister Dennis Hopper attended Derby multiple times in the 1990s and 2000s. The “Easy Rider” and “Speed” star was spotted enjoying a cigar on the fifth floor of the Skye Terrace in 2004, his reported last Derby visit. Movie star Morgan Freeman was spotted in Churchill’s Skye Terrace and Eclipse Dining Room at the 1991 Derby. Page 18

• In 1991, Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf was the Pegasus Parade grand marshal. Louisville was one of the famed general’s first stops after he returned home from the Persian Gulf War. On Derby Day, cheers could be heard erupting several times when Schwarzkopf was spotted on the deck of the fourth-floor Stakes Room. • In his signature black shades, actor Jack Nicholson was on hand betting the ponies at the 1998 Run for the Roses. That same year “The Godfather” legend Robert Duvall and “Rocky” star Sylvester Stallone were also on hand. • Then-Gov. George W. Bush, a year before he would become president, was a big hit at the Kentucky Derby in 2000. He was even snapped by a photographer in the Paddock giving a Louisville woman a kiss on the hand before presenting a trophy to the winner of one of the day’s races. His date? Former President George H.W. Bush. • In 2003, Academy Award-nominated actress Sigourney Weaver came to Churchill Downs. She told reporters she was putting her money on Atswhatimtalknbout, part-owned by her famous movie director friend, Steven Spielberg. • Chubby Checker brought the “Twist” to the Derby City in 2004 when he was the grand marshal of the Pegasus Parade. • Because of one VIP guest of the Barnstable Brown Gala, Louisville native Larry Birkhead would later find himself thrust into the national limelight. It was at the 2004 bash that he first came face to face with Playboy Playmate Anna Nicole Smith.
