Bob Newhart Finally Wins Emmy for “Big Bang Theory” Appearance By Mark Whittington Bob Newhart’s career spans decades, including two hit sitcoms, as well as a myriad of movies and guest shots on other TV shows. But it took a guest appearance on “The Big Bang Theory” to get him his first Emmy at the age of 84. According to Deadline Hollywood, Newhart got his Emmy for his role as “Professor Proton” a former now down on his luck host of a kid’s science show who had inspired two of the characters on “The Big Bang Theory,” Leonard and Sheldon, to be scientists. He approached his depiction with his signature deadpan approach, using perfect comedic timing, honoring the much younger actors with his performance. Newhart, who has done TV shows, movies, and comedy albums without number, is best known for two long running sitcoms. The first was “The Bob Newhart Show” that ran between 1972 and 1978 in which he starred as a

psychologist who served as a straight man for the various misadventures experienced by patients, friends, and family members. The late Suzanne Pleshette played his character’s wife. The show prospered despite having stiff competition from other sitcoms such as “All in the Family” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” The second was “Newhart” in which he played a how-to book author who decides to leave the rat race of New York City and buy a bed and breakfast in Vermont where he becomes a local TV celebrity. The show lasted from 1982 to 1990. “Newhart” was memorable for its final episode in which the character wakes up as his “Bob Newhart Show” character in bed with his old costar Pleshette to describe the horrible nightmare he had of being an innkeeper in Vermont. It is reported that Newhart will be returning to “The Big Bang Theory” at some point in the upcoming season, perhaps as “Professor Proton” or perhaps as some other character.

“Ask DMV” Expert Answers to Common DMV Questions By the California Department of Motor Vehicles Do you have questions about general driving related requirements like registration, licensing and insurance? Are you unclear about laws and restrictions related to driving? The California Department of Motor Vehicles has answers. “Save Time, Go Online,” at www. dmv.ca.gov. You can submit any DMV-related questions at AskDMV@ dmv.ca.gov 1. Q. I was recently cited for talking on my cell phone while driving and not using a hands-free device. Will this appear on my driving record and affect my insurance rates? A. Yes, the violation is a reportable offense; however, a violation point will not be assigned to your DMV record. In terms of insurance rates, if you violate California’s hand-held wireless telephone law (CA Vehicle Code 23123), the violation will be reported on the individual’s public driving record for 3 years. As a result, insurance companies would have access to the violation information. Insurance companies could potentially increase a customer’s insurance rates. Remember, it is illegal to drive a motor vehicle while using an electronic wireless communication device to write, send, or read text messages, instant messages, and emails unless you are 18 years of age or older and using an electronic wireless communications device designed and configured to allow voice-operated and hands-free operation to dictate, send, or listen to text-based communications when operating a vehicle. NOTE: With certain exceptions, adults may not use a cell phone while driving unless hands-free equipment is used. Minors may not use a cell phone except in certain emergencies. 2. Q. Recently, I’ve noticed drivers wearing headphones while driving. Wouldn’t the driver be distracted while listening to music through the headphones? Is this legal? A. It’s legal to wear an ear bud in one ear, but not two. 3. Q. Can I bring my pet into a DMV field office? A. Only service animals may accompany a person into a DMV Office. You are required to comply Page 4

with county or city ordinances regarding leash laws, so your service animal must be leashed or under the control of its owner when inside the DMV office, if the local ordinances require it. If your animal poses a direct threat to the health or safety of other people, you will be asked to remove your animal from the office. Although the service animal is not required to wear an identifying harness or special collar, you may be asked if the animal is a service animal or what tasks the animal has been trained to perform. You should not be refused service because you are accompanied by your service animal. 4. Q. Where can I get information about DMV field office closures? A. You can find information about DMV field offices closures by visiting us online at www.dmv.ca.gov or by calling 1-800-777-0133. DMV’s website includes a section called “Interrupted Services and Closure Information,” where you can find out which offices are closed for service. The website also provides information regarding field office locations, office hours, and “Holidays DMV will Be Observing.” 5. Q. I have an old car that I don’t drive because it doesn’t work that well. Do I still have to pay to have it registered? A. It depends. If you plan to store and not operate your vehicle during the next renewal year, you can apply for the Planned Non-Operation option online. There is a filing fee of $19 for the PNO. The PNO filing fee may be paid up to 60 days prior to the expiration date without late fees. If you file up to 90 days after the expiration date, you will be liable for late fees on the full registration amount. If at any time the vehicle is operated or parked where it may be subject to citation, then full registration fees and penalties for that year become due. For more information or to apply for the PNO online, visit www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/ brochures/fast_facts/ffvr01. htm. 6. Q. What should I do in a

The Ladera Ranch News

roadside emergency? A. Great question. Last year, the California Highway Patrol assisted motorists in more than 1.1 million roadside emergencies or other related issues across California. Having a roadside emergency kit in every vehicle is another simple way for motorists to be more prepared for emergencies or when stranded in a vehicle until help arrives. You can purchase roadside emergency kits at many retailers or create your own kit. Recommended items for a basic roadside emergency kit include: • Properly inflated spare tire and tire pressure gauge • Tire inflator or foam tire sealant • Car jack and lug wrench that fits your vehicle • Jumper cables to restart a dead car battery • 15 minute roadside flare • Reflective warning triangle or cone • Charged cellphone or other method of contacting emergency services • Bottled water • Flashlight with extra batteries • Multi-tool or basic tool kit • First aid kit including large bandages, gauze, adhesive tape, and scissors • Work gloves • Duct tape • 50 foot rope and utility knife • A quart of motor oil • Plastic sheeting or plastic tarp

• Energy bars or other shelf stable food • Appropriate seasonal items such as blankets, tire chains and an ice scraper. The Governor ’s Office of Emergency Services has useful information to help Californians be better prepared, including how to maintain emergency kits for homes, businesses and vehicles. For more information visit: http://www.calema. ca.gov/NewsandMedia/Pages/ Preparedness-Month.aspx The Office of Traffic Safety also has a useful list of supplies that motorists should keep in their vehicles to be more prepared for the next roadside emergency: http://www.ots.ca.gov/ roadsideemergencykit.asp Don’t Stand In Line, Go Online! Doing business with the DMV has never been easier. The DMV offers an array of services to customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through its Website including online advance appointments for written and drive tests; vehicle registration and driver license renewals, selection of personalized license plates, changes of address and payment of fees via secure debit transactions. Customers can also effect transactions by calling DMV customer service at 1-800-7770133. DMV is a department under the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA).

Whether you’re a parent driving your college-age student to school or you’re heading out on your first solo road trip back to campus, you can make sure your trip is stressfree and prevent unnecessary break downs on the road. Check your tires While you can’t avoid all debris on the road that could cause a flat tire, you can make sure your tires are in the best shape possible before you set out on your trip. Inflate your tires to the air pressure recommended by the manufacturer. This can be found on the inside of the driver’s door. Do not inflate them based on the numbers on the sidewall of your tire. Tires are manufactured for a variety of vehicles, but the manufacturer determines the correct air pressure based on other aspects of the car. Inspect the tread on your tires. Any signs of wear like little - or no tread - or visible threads signal that tires need to be replaced.

Update your GPS Summertime is notorious for road construction and driving around to take an alternate route or sitting in traffic can waste time and gas. That’s why it’s important that you update your GPS before you hit the road. In addition to avoiding construction, keeping your GPS up to date provides other benefits: * Stay safe by avoiding unnecessary stops in unfamiliar

neighborhoods, particularly at night. * Save time and money by using your GPS to locate restaurants, hotels and gas stations so you’re not driving around aimlessly. Freshen your fluids For most college students, maintaining a vehicle is not usually at the top of the list of priorities. Taking care of basics like changing your motor oil, oil filter, air filter and checking the level of other fluids like radiator coolant can save you from costly repairs. Consider using premium synthetic motor oil like Royal Purple. This simple switch can save you money because you can go more miles between oil changes. Depending on driving habits, this can be between 10,000 and 12,000 miles. Taking the time to make sure your car is maintained can mean an enjoyable trip back to school and a great start to the new school year.

Be kind whenever possible and remember, it is always possible. ~Dalai Lama The Ladera Ranch News

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. Most major credit cards and dental plans cheerfully accepted. Telephone (949) 459-7212

$10 Minimum wage increase bill signed by Governor Brown Legislation that was amended at the 11th floor to increase the state’s minimum wage to $10 an hour was passed by the Legislature yesterday and sent to Governor Brown. In an unprecedented announcement preceding the legislature’s approval of the bill, the Governor declared he would sign it. The bill, AB 10 by Assemblyman Luis Alejo (D-Salinas), was approved in the Senate on a 26-11 vote and in the Assembly on a 52-25 vote. As originally introduced AB 10 would have increased California’s hourly minimum wage to $8.25 in 2014, $8.75 in 2015 and $9.25 in 2016. Beginning in 2017, the minimum wage would have been adjusted annually according to the rate of inflation. Earlier this week, however, the bill was amended to raise the current $8 minimum wage to $9 an hour next July 1 and to $10 on Jan. 1, 2016. The provision that would require an annual adjustment was stripped out of the bill. The increase would be the first bump in the state’s minimum wage since 2008, when it was raised by 50 cents to $8. Organized labor lobbied heavily

for the bill, both in the Legislature and at the governor’s office. The California Chamber of Commerce which headed a large coalition of more than two dozen business organizations, labeled the bill “a job killer.” The coalition warned that higher wages could raise the unemployment rate and jeopardize California’s economic recovery. According to the Los Angeles Times, California currently has the eighth-highest minimum wage in the country. Washington state has the highest at $9.19 an hour, followed by Oregon at $8.95 and Vermont at $8.60. Nevada, Connecticut, the District of Columbia and Illinois all have minimum wages of $8.25 an hour. Only 19 states and the District of Columbia have passed laws setting their local minimum wage above the federal level of $7.25 an hour.

2013 Primetime Emmy Awards: Upsets, Tributes, Music By Maxine Nelson Host Neil Patrick Harris summed up the overall feeling, at the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, Sunday night by saying, “Nobody in America is winning their Emmy office pool.” That’s because the Emmys finally broke their mold from its tried and true safe winners of the past and mediahyped predictions. With the exception of Claire Danes’ second consecutive win for lead actress in a drama series, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jim Parsons for comedy and “Modern Family” have all won previously. First time winners Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom”), Tony Hale (“Veep”), Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad”), Bobby Canavale (“Boardwalk Empire”), and Merritt Wever (“Nurse Jackie”) beat out strong contenders such as Kevin Spacey, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler. Inevitably the10-year reign of wins from Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” finally gave way to “The Colbert Show” for best comedyvariety program. NBC’s “The Voice” is only the third reality-competition show to win this category. As expected HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra” won three Emmys, the most of the night, including outstanding TV movie, lead actor for Michael Douglas, and director Steven Soderbergh.

There was a tribute to Liberace, and his biopic “Behind the Candelabra,” by Elton John. He made his first ever appearance as a performer at the Emmys. His new song “Home Again” was penned with his songwriting partner Bernie Taupin. Other musical tributes included 50-year milestones with the upcoming JFK assassination on November 22, 1963, and The Beatles first

Laura’s House Gala “Step into the Roaring 20s” Raises $250,000

The Ladera Ranch News

Margaret Bayston presenting Dan Weeks, Vice President Community Banking and District Manager, Wells Fargo with the 2013 Crystal Heart Award for Wells Fargo’s Contributions to Laura’s House

Nearly 250 supporters converged on the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa for the Laura’s House annual gala, “Step into the Roaring 20s.” Dressed in attire inspired by “The Great Gatsby”, including bright and shimmery flapper dresses and headdresses, and more casual suiting for the men, as was common during the “Jazz Age,” guests raised more than $250,000 over the course of the evening to help fund the vital programs and services that the organization provides to individuals and families impacted by domestic violence. “We were very pleased to welcome so many of our supporters during the 19th Annual Laura’s House Gala,” said Margaret Bayston, CEO and Executive Director, Laura’s House. “This is an exciting time for Laura’s House and we are very proud of all that we have accomplished and grateful for the ongoing support we receive through special events such as our annual gala, which helps us tremendously in our efforts to respond to the need within the community for domestic violence programs and services.” Wayne Pinnell with his wife Karen Pinnell Presented by Western National Group, the event’s Title Sponsor, “Step into the Roaring 20s” began with a cocktail reception that included a selection of passed cold canapés and hot hors d’oeuvres including Seared Ahi on Wonton with Wasabi Cream Cheese, Brie Cheese and Red Grape Crostini, Miniature Beef Wellington and Filet Mignonette Point Reyes. Guests were also invited to enjoy signature cocktails from the martini luge, and a selection of red and white wines, cocktails and soft drinks. During the cocktail reception guests perused a silent auction featuring more than 200 items. Following the silent auction, guests were invited into the Grand Pacific Ballroom for the dinner and program, featuring Vikki Vargas, Orange County Bureau Chief for NBC4 as Master of Ceremonies. Following dinner, Bayston joined Wayne Pinnell, Chair of Laura’s House Board of Directors and Gala Chair, on stage to present this year’s Crystal Heart Award to Wells Fargo for its commitment to corporate philanthropy, and contributions to Laura’s House. Dan Weeks, Vice President, Community Banking District Manager, accepted the award on behalf of Wells Fargo. “We Master of Ceremonies Vikki are proud to have honored Wells Fargo for their exemplary roles as a longMike and Brenda Zalke time corporate partner of Laura’s House, and we are grateful to have them Vargas, Orange County Bureau in our corner as we work together to end the silence of domestic violence,” Chief for NBC4 continued Bayston. Laura’s House then welcomed one of our survivors to the stage, a successful fashion model and now talented author and speaker, who shared her testimony of how Laura’s House helped her after her husband abused her and her children. The survivor testimony was then followed with the debut of Laura’s House new “infographical” video, illustrating the impact the organization has had on the community since it was founded in 1994. After dinner, guests were invited to enjoy dancing and lively, musical entertainment from the Sensation Showband. For nearly two decades, Laura’s House has provided residential shelter and support services to more than 3,500 families, and counseling, life skills education and legal assistance to over 40,000 individuals. The mission of Laura’s House is to change the social beliefs, attitudes and the behaviors that perpetuate domestic violence while creating a safe space in which to empower individuals and families affected by abuse.

Back-to-school resolutions With kids across the country heading back to school, a common question at family dinner tables will be: “What did you learn today?” Kids will be learning reading, writing and arithmetic as they head back to school, but what about lessons involving money? For most people, our relationship with money is based on our childhood experiences, and many children look to their parents for these important lessons. Yet, according to a recent Capital One survey of parents and teens, less than half of teens have worked with their parents to develop a budget for spending and saving their money. As students prepare for a new school year, it’s a great time to start fresh with new resolutions around spending and saving.

Talk to your kids about wants vs. needs, saving, budgeting, using credit wisely and other money management habits that can last a lifetime. Here are a few ways to get started: * Crunch numbers together and establish a budget. As your teen starts earning an income through a job or an allowance, ask him or her to pitch in and contribute toward purchases he or she might otherwise take for granted. Create a budget together totaling your teen’s contributions and what you can afford to contribute, and then stick to it when you head out to the stores. * Only shop for what’s needed. Sit down together to make a list of what essentials your teen already has, what is needed and how much is budgeted for this shopping trip. This comes in handy for back-to-school shopping as well as the holiday s h o p p i n g season. * Do your homework. This is a good way to show your teen that homework

extends beyond the classroom and well into adult life. Researching the items on the shopping list before leaving the house allows your teen to comparison shop, looking at prices and the quality of the items. For teens on-the-go, there are also a great deal of apps available that can easily compare pricing of items. And not surprisingly, you might discover your teen has different priorities than you when it comes to deciding which items to purchase. Only 22 percent of teens surveyed considered the price of an item to be the top priority, whereas 46 percent said style and appearance were more important. Run a calculation of how much money could be saved between the lower-priced items and the items on the “want list.” * Set financial goals. Remind your teen to look beyond high school and discuss what items he or she would like to own in the future. It might be an electronic product, a car, paying for a future vacation, or helping to pay for college. The survey found that 83 percent of teens plan to attend college after high school, but 51 percent of those teens were not saving money to help pay for it. Help your teen set up a plan for how they will spend and save the money they earn or receive as gifts. * Lead by example. Encourage

good financial behavior by teaching your teen how to write checks, the use of credit cards and their associated fees and the importance of paying bills on time. Have them around the next time you pay your monthly bills, so they can see how much is spent on utilities, auto insurance and even food. This gives them a good picture for their future and how they might need to make financial decisions to cover essential expenses. * Introduce investing basics. Open a custodial account and help your kids pick the stocks they like most. Contribute a portion of their allowance or agree to match your teen’s contributions, and watch the account grow together. Set monthly meetings to review investments, make changes and pick new stocks to purchase. Beginning the stock discussion early will empower your teen with the comfort and knowledge they’ll need when they are an adult. By taking time to discuss spending, saving, budgeting and investing, you can help your teens save money now and point them in the right direction for a successful financial future.

California Spiny Lobster Season Opens Sept. 28 with Improved Lobster Report Card System Fishing for California’s spiny lobster is one of the most highly anticipated angling activities of the year. Beginning Saturday, Sept. 28, hundreds of divers and fishermen equipped with lobster hoop nets will descend upon the ocean waters of Southern California in pursuit of this tasty crustacean. Lobsters may be taken only by hand or hoop nets. E v ery one div i n g o r f ish in g for lobsters must have a valid California fishing license, a spiny lobster report card and must carry a measuring gauge to ensure their lobsters are of legal size. Daily bag and possession limits are seven lobsters per person and each lobster must measure a minimum of three and one-fourth inches measured in a straight line on the mid-line of the back. For a diagram and instructions, please see page 101 in the 2013-2014 Ocean Fishing Sport Fishing Regulations, available online at www.dfg. ca.gov/marine/regulations.asp or wherever licenses are sold. New this year, recreational lobster fishermen may purchase a spiny lobster report card that will run the entire fishing season, from Sept. 28, 2013 through March 19, 2014. Lobster report cards must be returned to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) by April 30, Page 14

2014, following the closure of the lobster fishing season on March 20. Fishermen may record report cards online at www.dfg.ca.gov/ licensing/ols anytime between the end of the lobster season until the April 30 deadline, or return report cards by mail as has been done in the past. CDFW staff anticipates a higher return rate with the new seasonal program. Last year, just 32 percent of the 37,000 lobster report cards purchased were returned. “We depend on the recreational lobster fishermen to provide CDFW with data to help us better manage the fishery,” said Senior Marine Biologist Kristine Barsky. “Low return rates result in increased costs for CDFW, such as conducting additional data collection to fill data gaps, managing without adequate data, increasing outreach efforts to remind anglers to return report cards, and enforcement.” Report card holders who fail to return their 2013-2014 seasonal lobster report card by the April 30, 2014 deadline will be assessed a $20 non-return fee when they purchase a 2014-2015 lobster report card. The non-return fee can be avoided by returning lobster report cards by the deadline, or by sitting out the entire next fishing season. “The lobster report card is the

The Ladera Ranch News

primary means of collecting data from the recreational lobster fishery,” Barsky said. “The number of report cards being purchased suggests a sizeable population of people targeting lobster in Southern California. Data collected from report cards allows CDFW to detect changes in the fishery, whether it’s a trend in harvest success or a change in gear type. This information is vital for managing California’s lobster resource.” Fishermen who have already purchased a 2013 calendar year lobster report card can rest assured that the card is still valid through Dec. 31, 2013, and due back to CDFW by Jan. 31, 2014. If 2013 calendar year cardholders wish to

continue fishing for lobster from Jan. 1 through March 19, 2014, they will need to purchase the new seasonal lobster report card. CDFW notified all 2012 and 2013 lobster report cardholders by mail with a letter and new brochure detailing the changes affecting the l obs ter rep ort c a rd. The brochure includes new protocols for reporting a lost card in order to avoid the non-return fee. For more information about the Spiny Lobster Fishery Management planning process currently underway, or to download a copy of the new lobster report card brochure, please visit www. dfg.ca.gov/marine/lobsterfmp.

Temperatures are dropping, it’s getting darker earlier, baseball is wrapping up and football is beginning… Fall is in the air! Fall is now official as of Sunday, September 22nd, and as we head into cooler weather and the upcoming holiday season now is a good time to be reminded and start preparing ourselves for winter and holiday safety says Fire Chief Sam DiGiovanna. “We’ll spend the next several months sharing specific safety information, however, this may be a good time to start thinking ahead as we move into Fall.” Most people will spend more time inside their homes cooking, holiday celebrations, using fireplaces, furnaces, and heaters as winter nears sys Chief DiGiovanna. It’s time to service your furnace, use fireplaces safely and use caution with space heaters. Exercise candle caution, change smoke alarm batteries during time change, practice Halloween safety, clean yard drains, use caution on ladders when cleaning roofs and gutters from leaves, needles and twigs before the rain season as well as preparing for those Santa Ana winds we get this time of year. Shoes or boots may be wet causing you to slip as you climb the ladder. Keep your driveway and walkway clear of falling leaves. They get very slippery when they are wet. Check and replace any home fire extinguishers that have expired. Always wear work gloves when doing outside yard work. It’s important to start planning now by staying ahead and not falling behind.

Winning tips for capturing memorable back-to-school photos As children across the country gear up with their new backpack, school supplies, clothes and haircuts, parents are reaching for their cameras, ready to capture another milestone: the annual back-to-school photo. This year, capture that memorable shot like a professional with a few expert tips and tricks. Lights, camera, action! Here’s how to get the best back-to-school photos of your child. Preparation: Change the batteries in your camera or charge your phone the night before school starts so it’s ready to go in the morning. Lights: Make sure you have proper lighting - using natural light like the sun may be best.

Page 16

Lighting can make or break your photo, so be sure there is enough light to showcase your child, yet not distract from the photo. Avoid having your child look directly into the sunlight, which causes squinty eyes. Also avoid shooting directly into the sunlight as it will darken the photo overall. If you are using a flash, make sure that your child is not too close to a background that may cast a shadow. Setting: What says “back to school” better than a yellow school bus? Choose a background that will visually tell the story of the special occasion. Framing: Try different angles close-ups, mid-range, long-range - to add visual appeal. Try some photos in landscape mode, some in portrait, and maybe some that are even off-center. You can add some depth by framing a photo with an interesting foreground or background. Capture the moment: Going back to school touches on a variety of emotions:

The Ladera Ranch News

excitement, nervousness or maybe even a little reluctance. Convey the day’s true feelings with natural expressions and poses through candid photos. Catch your children as they are getting ready for their first day, as they are awaiting the school bus, or as they are waving good-bye. Candid shots that show true emotions will capture the spirit of the day and tell a better story than posed shots. Share it: The first day of school is a special time for parents and children, so why not share it? Choose your favorite photo and post it on the Thomas Built Buses Photo Contest page on Facebook. Not only is it a great way to share the photo with your friends,

but parents who submit the top five winning photos will each receive a $2,000 donation for their child’s school program in science, technology and math.

and the unpaid principal of the Note secured by said Deed of Trust with interest thereon as provided in said Note, plus fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. 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 a 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 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 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case 12-0027001. 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.

Veterinarians Stress the Importance of Good Pet Dental Care Pets receive plenty of veterinary care, but many pet owners overlook the importance of pet dental care. Without regular oral care, pets are at risk for gum infections, gingivitis, swollen gums, tooth infections, periodontics, and halitosis. Pet owners can perform their own examinations of their pet mouths, and clean their pet’s teeth using canine toothpaste and a canine toothbrush to help ensure their pet’s optimal health. Oral examinations should be a part of every pet checkup, since they can help veterinarians detect and treat diseases including mouth tumors, cysts, and gum diseases. The common signs that a pet may be experiencing a pet dental disease include: extreme bad breath, eroded tarter that may start to turn black, and the pet may begin to experience loss of appetite. Eighty percent of dogs and cats past the age of four have some type of pet dental disease. The Balboa Veterinary Hospital says that most pet owners do not realize that these dental diseases, such as periodontal disease, affect more than just the mouth. Bacteria breed in the mouth can also spread to other vital organs, such as the

kidneys, liver, lungs, and heart. The veterinary hospital warns pet owners if proper pet care is not taken pets can lose teeth due to the disease, or may need infected teeth to be extracted. San Diego veterinarians recommend that along with daily teeth brushing, for both cats and dogs, annual dental care visits to a San Diego vet is vital. Regular tooth brushing goes a long way toward keeping pets safe and healthy, and can easily be performed at home in a few minutes. “I recommend that pet owners brush their pet’s teeth daily to remove tartar that can cause swollen gums and gingivitis,” says Dr. Miranda Alexander of Balboa Veterinary Hospital in San Diego. San Diego veterinarians encourage pet owners to purchase dog friendly toothpaste and tooth brush and make it a routine to brush pet’s teeth at least once a day. Most pets can get used to the idea of having their teeth brushed and may come to see the routine as a bonding experience. San Diego veterinarians can teach pet owners how to examine their pet’s mouths and brush their pet’s teeth. “Chew toys also play a role in dog oral health,” notes Dr. Alexander of Balboa

Veterinary Hospital. As pets chew, they scrape tartar off their teeth. Owners can feel good about leaving pets at home with nylon bones. Although the San Diego veterinary hospital cautions pet owners to never leave pets alone with rawhide chews, as they present a choking hazard. Balboa Veterinary Hospital

offers comprehensive pet dental care, including oral examinations, preventative dental care and treatment of oral health issues affecting pets. To learn more about pet dental care and pet dental diseases, please visit Balboa Veterinary Hospital’s website at http://mybalboavet.com.

Vacheron Constantin boutique celebrates new timepieces Tuesday evening, September 17, was a particularly special evening at the Vacheron Constantin boutique in South Coast Plaza. The renowned Swiss watchmaker celebrated the arrival of new and exceptional timepieces at the Plaza boutique – its first on the West Coast - and Vacheron Constantin’s 258th birthday to the very date. Vacheron Constantin is the oldest watch manufacturer in continuous operation in the world. Among the guests were a number of VIPs and donors representing Segerstrom Center for the Arts, making it something of a reunion for many. Vacheron Constantin was the lead sponsor of the Center’s 2012 Candlelight Concert. It was exciting to hear both Hugues de Pins, president of Vacheron Constantin North America, and Terrence W. Dwyer, president of Segerstrom Center for the Arts express their hopes for future collaborations. In his remarks, Mr. de Pins referred to the Center’s International Dance Series and commented on Vacheron Constantin’s own support of dance through affiliations with New York City Ballet and Paris Opera Ballet, both of which have appeared at the Center. As an example of Vacheron Constantin’s affinity for dance, Mr. de Pins drew his guests’ attention to a one-of-a-kind watch inspired by artist Page 18

Edgar Degas: Métiers d’Art Hommage à l’Art de la Danse “Two Dancers on Stage”. The watch features a hand enameled dial depicting Degas’ work of the same name. Also on display was the spectacular Kalla Haute Couture à Pampilles diamond “secret” watch, the only one of its kind in the USA, set with 28 carats of diamonds. Among the guests were Jennifer and Anton Segerstrom, past Center Chair Mark Chapin Johnson, past Center President Tim Strader and his wife Susan, Center Executive Vice President Judy Morr, Gail Daniels from the Center Stars and Guilds with her husband Jim, and Lola Gershfeld from the Center’s Corporate Council. - Photos by Chris Emerick
