Veterinarians Warn Pet Owners of the Dangers of Pet Dehydration Balboa Veterinary Hospital in San Diego is warning pet owners about the dangers of animal dehydration during the warm summer months. According to the San Diego veterinarians, higher summer temperatures and extended outdoor playtime increases the risk for dehydration in dogs and cats. Dehydrated pets are at greater risk for heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Without veterinary intervention, heat stroke can be fatal for pets. The animal hospital is urging pet owners to keep pets hydrated, learn the warning signs of heat stroke, and to be vigilant about pets’ overall health during the summer months. Warmer summer temperatures and increased outdoor activities raises the risk for dehydration and heat stroke in pets, says the veterinary team at Balboa Veterinary Hospital. The veterinarians are urging pet owners to be vigilant this summer and keep pets hydrated. “Dehydration is common among pets during the summer months,” said veterinarian Dr. Juan Pablo Romero. “Animals, just like humans, require additional water intake during warmer weather in order to stay hydrated. Additionally, due to increased outdoor

activities, pets are at a greater risk for over-exertion, which elevates the risk for dehydration.” Water is essential to all living beings, including dogs. Water makes up 80% of a dog’s body, says, Dr. Romero, and a drop in fluid levels can have a significant impact on an animal’s overall health. Dehydration occurs when fluid levels drop below normal due to decreased water intake or increased fluid loss. Symptoms of dehydration include sunken eyes, lethargy, dry mouth, loss of appetite, and depression. “During the summer, dehydration can occur after outdoor activities, such as an afternoon playing on the beach in Coronado, a long run, or even a vigorous game of fetch,” said Dr. Romero. “Pet owners need to be vigilant about not only providing water after outdoor activities, but managing their pet’s level of exertion.” Dr. Romero says pet owners should provide pets with constant access to fresh water and change it regularly. If pets will be outside for extended periods, the veterinarian recommends partially freezing a pet’s water bowl. As the day progresses, the water will melt, giving pets constant access to

fresh water. During the summer months, Balboa Veterinary Hospital reports an increase in the number of pets who are dehydrated or suffering from heat exhaustion. “Many of these cases could be prevented through vigilance and reduced outdoor activity,” said Dr. Romero. “Pets can become dehydrated even on overcast days that are not ‘hot’. Vigilance and early intervention are key to preventing more serious health problems.” Pet owners who suspect their pets

are dehydrated should contact their veterinarian, says Dr. Romero. Balboa Veterinary Hospital is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Associations (AAHA). The vet hospital provides comprehensive wellness care services, including vaccinations, annual exams, pet surgery, and dog grooming.

Fantasy Football ‘13: Is it Time to Spice Up Your League? By John Miller If your a league commissioner, don’t go just making changes to your league. Being a fantasy commissioner is one of the most thankless things there is. It’s literally impossible to make every owner in your league happy all of the time. The upside should be that you have power. But you really don’t. Even if you do, it’s bad form to make changes to your league without allowing other owners to offer their input. Again, you’re never going to make every owner happy. If you want to make some changes, it should come down to a league vote. If at least half of the league votes for it, then you make the change. If other owners don’t like it, they can always find another league. Changing things up is supposed to add competition and make things more exciting. If all it does is cause drama, maybe you should just leave your league the way it is. You would be surprised how open some owners are to trying some new stuff out. My main league just decided to add individual defensive players (IDP) one year and pretty much everybody was cool with it. That’s what you’re trying to accomplish with any changes to your league. Now that the conditions are set, here are some ways to spice up your fantasy football league for 2013. Add teams to your league. If you’re playing in a league with 10 teams or less, don’t be afraid to go to 12 or 14 teams.

Page 4

Add “keepers” to your league. Allow teams to keep one or more players for 2014 and possibly beyond. This is a nice added dimension for owners who are eliminated from the 2013 early. They can at least work on building their team for 2014. Place more emphasis on total points scored. Part of the fun of fantasy football is how the weeks are matchup-based. You can have a bad week and still win if the team you are playing against has an even worse week. It’s not so fun for the owner who scores the second-most points in a week but loses because he just happened to be matched up against the team that scored the most points. Making total points worth something (playoff berth or bonus money) will keep the good, but unlucky owners invested. Switch to an auction draft format. An auction draft allows owners to aggressively target the players they want. If you’ve never tried it, auctions are a lot of fun. For more on auction drafts, click here. Move from a waivers system to a free agent acquisition budget (FAAB) system. The FAAB system is basically a weekly auction for all players on waivers. Owners select the players they want

The Ladera Ranch News

and place bids on them. This is a more strategic system that gives every owner a chance at every waiver wire player. For more on FAAB, click here. Add IDP to your league. Adding even two or three defensive players adds a whole new level of strategy to your league. If you’re going to do this, it’s a good idea to only start out with two or three defensive players. You can always add more next season. Convert your league to a point-per-reception (PPR) league. A PPR league generates higher scoring and balances out the value of touchdowns a bit. There are always good players who fail to score touchdowns and bad players who somehow do score. The PPR format addresses this. Make all special teams contributions count. Allow players to not only get points when they score a return touchdown, but reward them for kick and punt return yardage. This won’t effect all players, but it will add a dimension to quite a few. This also works well in IDP leagues where you are starting defensive backs who are also dangerous return men. Add bonus points for certain statistical benchmarks. For instance, a player receives an addition points when he reaches 100 yards rushing or receiving in a game. Or a player receives two bonus points if he scores a touchdown of 50+ yards. You can even subtract points, like for when a quarterback gets sacked. Go to a decimal scoring system. This is nowhere near as daunting as

it sounds. For instance, instead of 10 yards being worth 1 point, one yard is now worth .1 point. Ten yards still equals one point. This system has two advantages. It counts every yard. If a player runs for 79 yards, why are those nine yards meaningless? Second, this scoring system eliminates almost all ties. You know what’s really unfair? Weekly tiebreakers in fantasy football. They’re usually things like most bench points or most points by your QB. I’ve even seen tiebreakers where the home team wins. A decimal system makes tie games much more mathematically unlikely, which is better for all involved. I wouldn’t recommend implementing all of these changes at once. But try one or two of them on for size. You already love fantasy football enough to be reading articles on the internet about it. Why not take it to the next level?

According to a recent survey released by Whole Foods Market(r), 68 percent of adults say the economy has affected their cooking and eating habits. More than 50 percent of consumers say they are eating dinner at home more often to save money. But cutting costs on dining out doesn’t mean giving up on the joys of great company and delicious foods. The changing economy has many Americans bringing their love of food back into the comfort of their own kitchens. And with a wealth of supermarket coupons and in-store specials available, entertaining at home is easier than ever and more affordable. So even if a fancy meal out with friends isn’t in your budget, you can still enjoy spending quality time together over a delicious meal. Here are a few budget-friendly tips to make the most out of dining in: Prepare Foods that Stretch. It’s important to make every dollar count. Soups, pastas and casseroles are not only easy to make, but they’re an economical way to feed a large group. Not sure what to make? Many food web sites offer a “budget wise” category for inspiration. Make it a Game Night. Invite guests to bring over a few of their favorite games. Pair up into teams and rediscover the joy of a little friendly competition. Whether you’re the reigning card champion or experiencing the latest gaming phenomenon for the first time, you’re sure to enjoy an evening filled with fun and laughter. Host a Potluck. Forget buying expensive groceries and spending hours in the kitchen. Encourage

guests to bring a dish of their own for a tasty potluck. From homemade pasta salads to delicious breads and indulgent desserts, you’ll have a variety of taste-tempting foods that will be the talk of the party. Plus, everyone loves to help out the hostess. Chocolate Soufflés Made Easy. Cap off the evening with this restaurant-style dessert that’s sure to impress. With only seven ingredients and just a few simple steps, these soufflés really deliver on taste and presentation. And the best part? They can be made in advance, allowing you to spend more time with guests. For more entertaining tips and recipe ideas, visit VeryBestBaking. com and Meals.com. Make-Ahead Chocolate Soufflés (Makes 8 servings) Nonstick cooking spray Granulated sugar 2 cups (12-ounce package) Nestlé(r) Toll House(r) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter 1/4 cup Nestlé(r) Toll House(r) Baking Cocoa 4 large eggs, separated 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/3 cup granulated sugar 1 container (14 ounces) Vanilla Häagen-Dazs(r) Ice Cream (optional) SPRAY eight 6-ounce ramekins or custard cups with nonstick cooking spray; coat lightly with granulated sugar.

MICROWAVE morsels, butter and baking cocoa in large, microwavesafe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Stir in egg yolks and vanilla extract. BEAT egg whites in large mixer bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in 1/3 cup granulated sugar until stiff peaks form. Stir one-fourth of egg white mixture into chocolate mixture to lighten. Fold in remaining egg white mixture gently but thoroughly. Spoon into prepared ramekins, filling about 3/4 full. Cover soufflés individually with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 1 day. PREHEAT oven to 400° F. Remove plastic wrap from soufflés. Place soufflés on baking sheet. Bake on center oven rack for 18 to 20 minutes or until puffed and center still moves slightly. Top with scoop of ice cream. Serve immediately. Cook’s Tip: If you wish to prepare batter and bake immediately, reduce bake time by a couple of minutes.

local Dentist michael tessier says avoiding tooth Decay is getting easier than ever before Years ago some of the reasons people gave for not having the cavities in our teeth filled were:” the “shot”, the “the “drill”, the “numbness”, the pain” Dr. Michael Tessier associated with old-time dentistry. But, by using the Whisper Jet, a micro miniature sandblaster using 50 micron-size particles of aluminum oxide, and the Waterlase MD Laser, we get your fillings completed without anesthetic, and with no pain, because of today’s technology, Remembering that the decay process starts with acid-induced demineralization of the enamel of the teeth, here are some ways to avoid the need for dental work: Go to the dentist every six monthsfrequent visits help avoid big problems. Avoid industrially-manufactured foods, like chips or cookies or crackers. Instead, or after, eat raw carrots, celery or apples. Real foods have larger, fibrous particles which actually clean decay-producing sugars off the teeth). Avoid soft drinks, sweetened or otherwise. Instead, drink water, fluoridated or not. Chew sugarless gum. This stimulates acid-neutralizing saliva which counteracts the acidic end-products of bacterial metabolism that cause decay, and mechanically cleans the teeth.

Brush properly with fluoride toothpaste. Floss daily. That little point contact where adjacent teeth touch each other is not accessible to a toothbrush bristle. Remember, you only have to floss the ones you want to keep. By the way, there’s a significant link between the phosphoric acid used as a preservative in dark soft drinks and Alzheimer’s. Another reason to avoid them. We recently found a hard candy that’s sweetened with a Xylitol that coats the teeth with a decay-reducing micro-film. Something like fifteen flavors, no aftertaste. Good Stuff. There is a genetic pre-disposition to susceptibility to decay. Some people get cavities irrespective of how well they take care of their teeth; some people don’t take care of their teeth at all, and still never get cavities. It isn’t necessarily fair (how much in life is?), but the above can help. “The more I work with the laser and the sandblaster, filling teeth without the need for drilling and therefore anesthetic, the more I realize how much dentistry has changed over the last 30 years. When the drill and the carbide burr were our only cutting options, we made it more likely that, in their later adult hood, these teeth would crack, ultimately needing crowns. Today, we’re leaving these teeth stronger. This stuff is great,” he says with a smile. Dr. Michael Tessier is located in Los Flores Plaza at 28562 Oso Parkway.

How to Get a Part-Time Job as an NFL Cheerleader Break into the World of Professional Cheerleading

Many a young boy and his parents dream of him playing professional football one day, but how many parents plan on their daughter becoming a professional cheerleader for an NFL team? NFL cheerleaders get to tour the country and be famous too. On a TV show following the Dallas Cowboys cheerleader training camp, you can see that the NFL cheerleaders are also taught correct etiquette, poise, and even have to learn a little grammar. In addition, being a professional cheerleader is only a part-time job, so you can hold another job, go to school, or even be a mother at the same time. In fact, the Washington Redskins requires that you have a full- or part-time job, are attending college, or have a family in order to audition, emphasizing that this is a part-time job. Finding an Audition Find a team holding cheerleading auditions near you and register. You can find out about this by picking a team that plays near you, and searching for their cheerleading squad’s website online. You must be at least 18 years old to be accepted to an audition with the Dallas Cowboys, but 21 to audition for the Carolina Panthers. Most teams require that candidates have a high school diploma or GED. The auditions will take up several days, especially if you do well and progress through each round to the next. Keep this in mind when scheduling. Audition dates for NFL cheerleaders vary from squad to squad. The Dallas Cowboys

Cheerleaders hold their auditions in April, while the New England Patriots Cheerleaders have auditions at the end of March. Looking the Part The Dallas Cowboys cheerleading website claims that they do not have specific height and weight requirements to try out, but that the woman’s body should “look well-proportioned in dancewear.” An advertisement for the New England Patriots cheerleader try-outs specifies that they do have set requirements for height and weight. On the TV show about their training camp, however, they kicked off girls who did not photograph well, and took it upon themselves to fix hair and make-up style as they saw fit. You may have all the dance and cheerleading skills they could hope for, but if you don’t fit the image of a professional cheerleader, you don’t have a chance. What they’re looking for Dancing Talent Practice those high kicks and splits-these are some of the essential skills needed for become an NFL cheerleader. You also need to be able to pick up a new routine pretty quickly, as learning and performing one will probably be part of the audition. Most of the cheerleading squads are more dancing than the traditional cheerleader tumbling. However, some try-outs offer optional tumbling auditions if you do have these skills and want to show them off.

If you have the time and money, invest in some dance classes. The Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders offer classes to “prep” for their auditions. This may give you an advantage during auditions. What they’re looking for Personality Most auditions include some form of personal interview. Of course, how well you look and dance is probably far more important than this, but don’t take it lightly. NFL Cheerleaders are exposed to a lot of press, have to meet children and fans, and represent the team well. They have to make sure that their cheerleaders can present themselves well when talking to the public, and won’t pull any crazy stunts that will get bad press. They also want someone who will be easy to work with. So here, watch your manners and be nice! After Auditions - You’re not in yet After auditions, the candidate field is narrowed down. These lucky ones will go on to training camp, but more will need to be cut. The few weeks of training camp allows the judges to get to know the women’s personalities and dancing style better, and see who the best fit for the team is. If you get cut during this round, don’t get down! If you made it that far, you have some talent, and you probably got some feedback. If you still dream of being an NFL cheerleader, listen to that feedback, work on improving, and head out to the next auditions! The Ladera Ranch News

The Ladera Ranch News

Alise Richel reacts to her name being called Ms. Senior California.

Alise Richel from Santa Monica was crowned Ms. Senior California 2013. She competed against 13 contestants who came from all over California at the Rose Center Theater in Westminster, CA. The women competed in interview, evening gown and talent competition as well as reciting their philosophy of life. First runner up went to Dr. Gayla Kalp-Jackson from Moorpark; second runner up was Fabie Combs from Yorba Linda; third runner up was Michele McDougal from San Diego and fourth runner up went to Jeanne Lenhart from San Diego. A new special award was introduced for contestants to give back to their favorite charity. Suzanne Millhollen-Goodrich from Rancho Santa Margarita was the winner who placed the most ads in the program book; she received $250 to be donated to her charity Olive Crest. The theme this year is “The Best is Yet to Come”, taking center stage was the talent competition. There were a variety of singers, dancers; one played a flamenco guitar, another provided a rousing monologue about how the song “Taps” came to be. This year’s talent award went to Alise Richel who sang from the Puccini opera Turandot, the aria Nessun Dorma (None Shall Sleep). 2013 Ms. Senior California Richel’s walk across the stage to accept the Legal Counsel for Ms. Senior California Rick Talbot, Executive Director crown marked her first steps on a journey that will take her from spotlight to of Emeritus David Tamo and Ed Harris, Judges Timekeeper. spotlight representing the American woman 60 years of age and over who have reached the “Age of Elegance”. Richel will receive an all-expense paid trip to Atlantic City to compete in the October 2013 Ms. Senior America Pageant. Richel was born in Brooklyn, New York and studied with great conductors from the Metropolitan Opera, the Vienna State Opera as well as conductors from LaScala. She studied in the Opera Department at Tanglewood under the auspices of Leonard Bernstein. She also studied in the Opera Workshop at Columbia University; her rehearsal pianist was John Kander who went on to write greats such as “New York, New York.” She married and raised two children and continued her love for singing. She later moved to Florida and sang with large Florida symphonies. Years later she moved to Los Angeles to be near her son and is now teaching vocal students. Currently she’s writing a book based on her approach to the art of singing. Each contestant competing in this year’s pageant either won a regional title or was first runner up in one of the seven preliminary pageants that were held around the State earlier this year. The Pageant is open to women who have reached the “Age of Elegance” - 60 years of age and up. The Pageant seeks to elevate Baby Boomer women as well as senior women, encouraging them to “stay vital and connected with life”, to be role models for their peers Ms. Senior Orange County Fabie Alise Richel - Ms. Senior and younger generations.

USTA Free Tennis Play Events are free and open to the public, each showcasing how fun and easy it now is for families to get into the sport, Page 16

Health and fitness expert Bob Harper kicked off the month of festivities by participating in a youth tennis demo at the U.S. Open on Aug. 31.

“My mission is to get out there, get kids more active, get them playing whatever sport they want to be playing,” said Harper at a USTA press conference. “I do believe there is a storm of change out there. There is

going to be a shift. But we as a community have to pull together for our children, because our children need our help more than ever.”
