THE TOLL ROADS ANNOUNCE 13TH ANNUAL SPRING TOURS The Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) extend an invitation to the public for the highly-anticipated 13th Annual Spring Tours Series. Participants will experience the natural beauty of Orange County on guided walks through land set aside and protected with the construction of the 73, 133, 241 and 261 Toll Roads. Led by the restoration specialist and biologist who has spent the last two decades restoring these sites to their native habitat and contributing to The Toll Roads’ award-winning environmental programs, this year’s tours focus on the comprehensive efforts and commitment to environmental conservation and restoration, and provide an exclusive glimpse into special areas of Orange County that few have ever seen.

The Education and Community Programs Department works hand-in-hand with a number of boards of education, providing support and assistance to ensure the success and effectiveness of the Center’s programs. The popular Family Series engages, enchants and inspires youngsters with the magic of live performance.

Celebrating America’s Rhone Rangers HAPPY GRAPES

By David White This week, more than 100 wine producers are gathering in San Francisco to celebrate America’s take on the 22 grape varieties originally made famous in France’s Rhone Valley. The producers -- known collectively as the “Rhone Rangers” -- trace their roots to the 1980s, when a small group of California vintners dedicated to these varieties began meeting informally. One of these winemakers was Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon Vineyard. Although best known for his flamboyant and irreverent marketing campaigns, Grahm was among the first American winemakers to embrace varietals like Syrah, Grenache,

and Mourvedre. So when the Wine Spectator dubbed Grahm “The Rhone Ranger” in 1989, the moniker stuck. As the organization began to grow, these Rhone Rangers realized that if they worked together, they’d all benefit. So in the late 1990s, they formally organized and began promoting their work. The group helped catalyze -and revive -- the planting of Rhone varieties across the country. But they still have lots of work to do. Consider Syrah, the most popular Rhone varietal in the United States. Marked by dark fruits, black pepper, and meat, Syrah is wonderfully accessible, even in its youth. And whether it’s bottled on its own or blended with varieties like Grenache and Mourvedre, Syrah is capable of striking the perfect balance between power and finesse. So it works well with all sorts of food. When it comes to sales, however, Syrah is only the fourth most popular red wine grape, trailing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pinot Noir. Although many California winemakers have spent their lives hoping Syrah would become the state’s next great varietal, sales have dropped steadily over the past few years. In

2012, Syrah sales declined by nearly 16 percent. It’s no wonder why many winemakers joke that it’s easier to get rid of a case of pneumonia than a case of Syrah. With white wines, the Rhone Rangers face an even bigger challenge. The primary four varieties -- Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, and Grenache Blanc -- barely make the radar for America’s wine consumers. This defies logic. Viognier, which is typically bottled on its own, and Marsanne and Roussanne, which are typically bottled together, are rich, tropical, and floral. So they’re perfect substitutes for Chardonnay - and oftentimes more interesting. Grenache Blanc is bright, tart, and crisp. It’s one of my favorite varietals to pair with warm weather. In the United States, many of the best Rhone-inspired wines come from vineyards along California’s coast -from the Santa Ynez Valley and Paso Robles along the Central Coast, to the Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey, to the Russian River Valley and Dry Creek in Sonoma. Other top wines come from the Columbia Valley and Walla Walla Valley in Washington and Oregon’s Rogue

Valley. Idaho, Michigan, and Virginia are also beginning to make their mark with these grapes. Most of these areas are relatively cool. Although most Rhone varieties are a farmer’s dream -- reasonably easy to grow and fairly resistant to disease -- these grapes shine when grown in cooler areas, resulting in complex, vibrant, more aromatic wines. When grown in warmer climates, these varieties too easily produce wines that are flabby and pruney. The Rhone Rangers certainly have their work cut out for them. But for now, the lack of demand for Rhone varietals helps keep prices low. So check out what the Rhone Rangers have to offer. You won’t be disappointed.

The Intergalactic Nemesis The Intergalactic Nemesis Book One: Target Earth Touches Down at Segerstrom Center for the Arts May 31 & June 2, 2013 in Samueli Theater; tickets go on sale May 5 Audiences attending Segerstrom Center’s Family Series presentation of The Intergalactic Nemesis LiveAction Graphic Novel can expect a one-of-a-kind whirlwind theatrical experience where radio drama and comic books collide. In this period adventure story set in 1933, Pulitzerwinning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott face the most serious threat Earth has ever known – an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon. “In 20 years of directing and producing plays, I’ve never seen an audience respond so positively,” says project creator Jason Neulander. The storytelling method is what makes the experience of The Intergalactic Nemesis so incredibly unique and mesmerizing. There are more than 1,000 hand-drawn, full-color, hi-resolution and intensely vivid comic book images displayed on a giant screen as three actors play all the parts and one Foley artist and one

keyboardist perform all sound effects and music . “The Intergalactic Nemesis is an adventure from beginning to end and something you simply must experience if you are a fan of awesome,” declares Bill Graham of Collider.com. When The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel premiered in 2010, more than 2,000 people turned out. Shortly thereafter, it was featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and CONA . Now, in its second touring season, the production arrives at 40 venues around the U.S., U.K. and Canada, including a run at the New Victory Theatre on Broadway. Audiences are encouraged to arrive early, as each performance includes an hour of free pre-show play activities and a reading area with an assortment of children’s books. The Center’s Education and Community Programs Department offers these enriching experiences to pro-

vide young people and their parents more opportunities to play together creatively. Studies show that this is critical to helping children develop their ability to think and problem solve. The Intergalactic Nemesis LiveAction Graphic Novel is recommended for families and children ages seven and up. Tickets are $20 and will go on sale Sunday, May 5 at

10 a.m. PT. Tickets will be available online at SCFTA.org, at the Box Office at 600 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa or by calling (714) 556- 2787. For inquiries about group ticket savings for 10 or more, call the Group Services office at (714) 755- 0236. The TTY number is (714) 556-2746. The performance on Sunday, June 2 at 12 p.m. will be sign- language interpreted.

Are You the Next Ms. Senior Orange County? The Ms. Senior California Pageant is conducting a search to find contestants in the Orange County area for the third preliminary pageant in April 2013. The two top contestants will advance to the State Pageant to compete for the title of Ms. Senior California in August 2013. The Pageant is open to women who have reached the “age of elegance” – 60 and up. The Pageant seeks to elevate Baby Boomer women as well as senior women, encouraging them to “stay vital and connected with life” and to be role models for their peers and younger generations. Pageant competition is based on an interview, modeling an evening gown, sharing of a philosophy of life statement, and talent. All interested contestants can contact Orange County Director, Pam Wheeler at (949) 241-4007, or email at pwheeler94@cox.net. The Pageant will take place on Saturday April 6, 2013 at 1:30 PM. It will be held at the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center, 24932 Veterans Way in Mission Viejo. Deadline for applications is Wednesday, March 27, 2013. In honoring the 7 million+ Baby Boomers and seniors in California, the Pageant Program is hosting eight regional preliminary pageants around California, with the Orange County pageant being the third stop. The top two finalists from each preliminary pageant will advance to the State Pageant in August for the title of Ms. Senior California. In addition, Ms. Senior California will go, all expenses paid, to participate in the October 2013 Ms. Senior America Pageant in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Reigning Ms. Senior California, Elisabeth Howard from Topanga Canyon, went on to win Ms. Senior America at the 2012 Ms. Senior America Pageant. Ms. Howard is a graduate of the Juilliard School with a B.S. and M.S. in voice. She is on the vocal faculty of Pepperdine University and is the founder and director of the highly respected Vocal Power Academy in Los Angeles, established in 1980, with a network of teachers teaching the Elisabeth Howard Vocal Power Singing Method. Clients have appeared on American Idol, Star Search, TV series, film and recording, Broadway, Off-Broadway and National Tours. All contestants are also invited to become a member of the Cameo Club and to perform in the “Silver Girls Entertainment” group. Traveling around to large and small venues alike, these Entertainers delight audiences with their talent and by sharing their joy of life. Since 2001, this entertainment group has performed at over 50 events each year. Ms. Senior California of America, Inc. was established as a non-profit corporation in 2010 and is affiliated with Ms. Senior America, Inc., founded in 1971. The Ms. Senior California Pageant is celebrating its 26th anniversary, and is now the largest senior pageant program in the nation. For more information please visit www.MsSrCalifornia.com.

PACIFIC SYMPHONY POPS WELCOMES LEGENDARY “EMPRESS OF SOUL” GLADYS KNIGHT Eight-time Grammy winner and film/television sensation Gladys Knight and her famous soulful voice perform for the first time with Pacific Symphony during the orchestra’s next Pops concert. Having recorded more than 38 albums and enjoyed No. 1 hits on the pop, R&B and adult contemporary charts, Knight enchants audiences with four generations of music—from her Motown days with Gladys Knight & The Pips to her four solo records. In addition to being recognized in multiple halls of fame, Knight has been a guest judge and performer on “American Idol” and a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars”; she has appeared in the Tyler Perry film, “I Can Do Bad All By Myself” and opened the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City with “This is Our Time.” For this concert, she’ll be singing favorites such as “Midnight Train to Georgia,” “Every Beat of My Heart,” her James Bond single “License to Kill” and “I Heard it Through the Grapevine,” all backed by the lush sounds of the full symphony orchestra. Knight appears with the Symphony on April 18-20, at 8 p.m., in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. Tickets are $25-160; for more information or to purchase tickets call (714) 755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org. Led by Maestra Eímear Noone— an ingenious conductor and composer with an immense passion for conducting music from all genres, including video game scores—the concert’s first half features Russell Brower’s “Leah” from Blizzard Entertainment’s “Diablo III,” which she originally recorded with Pacific Symphony for the game’s highly successful release in 2012; also, Copland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man” and “Hoe Down” from “Rodeo”; Bernstein’s Overture to “Candide”; and Debussy’s haunting “Claire de Lune.” Then, the orchestra rocks out to an arrangement of AC/DC’s music by Emmy-nominated composer Craig Stuart Garfinkle, called “Back in Symphonic Black.” “Ms. Knight fully embodies her title of ‘The Empress of Soul,’ and it is a great honor to be invited to share a stage with her,” says Noone, who leads the orchestra during Knight’s performance. “Hers is a voice of the people. It belongs to us all. It puts sound to our deepest longings and heartaches,

joys and great loves. She gives everything to her people on stage, a completely selfless and vulnerable passion in her performance and then, of course, there’s the soul... Only a true, fearless artist can perform with such soul.” The star vocalist of the evening, Knight, began singing gospel music in the Mount Moriah Baptist Church in Georgia at age 4. Three years later, she won the grand prize on the television show, “Ted Mack’s Amateur Hour,” and the following year, she joined what would eventually become Gladys Knight & The Pips. In 1995, Knight earned her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 1996, Gladys Knight & The Pips were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and a year later, they were presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame. Knight received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the annual BET Awards in 2004. Last year, she ended a critically acclaimed four-year run performing nightly at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, which was hailed “the number-one show on the Strip” by the Las Vegas Review Journal. “The first half really should be

called, ‘these are a few of my favorite things,’” says Noone, “and it is with great excitement that I share these universally beloved short musical gems with the Pacific Symphony audience. I feel the same passion as if I were sharing them with my own family for the first time! To me, it’s vital to experience a wide range of musical styles and each one requires something different of the conductor. My background includes a thorough classical education, but first and foremost, I am a huge multi-genre music fan. “The battle between the forces of heaven and hell is the backdrop for ‘Diablo III’ and the orchestra treated us to a richness of sonority that worked perfectly for the project,” says Noone of the video-game collaboration. “Pacific Symphony gave us such a great performance that we had to match them with a couple of the best groups of vocal artists in Christendom! We flew all the way to Dublin to record the ‘hell choir’ or the seductively ethereal choral group Anúna and then to London for the ‘heaven choir’ or Knights Templar-esque London Voices at Abbey Road. “Of course I’m absolutely delighted to come back and work with

such an incredible group of artists and exemplary human beings,” she continues. “One of the unexpected results of our collaboration has been numerous awards and nominations, so thank you, Pacific Symphony!” Currently, Noone is touring as the conductor for The Zelda Symphony, a full four-movement symphony created from the iconic video game “Zelda.” Noone also recorded the “Zelda Symphony 25th Anniversary CD,” which was released by Nintendo as part of its newest “Zelda” game, “The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.” In 2011, she conducted and co-produced “This Is Ireland” at Royce Hall in Los Angeles for St. Patrick’s Day. Featuring orchestra, gospel choir, actors and soloists, the show starred Irish celebrites Pierce Brosnan and Roma Downey. The Thursday, April 18, concert is sponsored by U.S. Bank, and the Friday, April 19, concert is sponsored by Farmers & Merchants Bank. Pacific Symphony’s Pops series receives additional support from The Westin South Coast Plaza, American Airlines, K-Earth 101 and PBS SoCal.

Light in Africa – Tanzania Trip, Part 1 by Kelly Bennett I left for Tanzania February 17th and returned March 8th; 20 days in Africa, not knowing what to expect and not knowing what I was doing. Although It was an amazing trip, something that you only experience once in a lifetime, I felt a calling to go - like a “I have to be here” feeling. Before I left, everyone said my life will be changed, well, they were right. What I saw and what I experienced brings me to tears every time I think about it. The children who are, by no fault of their own, brought into this world and then abandoned or orphaned. The families experiencing extreme poverty, sickness and depression because of the lack of having water and other basic needs. It all started last fall; I was covering an event for this column. It was about a man - Bonner Paddock who was being celebrated at a going away party as he was competing in the Iron Man Triathlon in Hawaii. You might remember him; in 2008 he was the first person with Cerebral Palsy to climb Mount Kilimanjaro - now he was going to be the first with CP to enter the Iron Man Contest. At this event, he introduced a lady by the name of Mama Lynn. Lynn Elliott is her name; her van just pulled up and as she came closer, she was pushing a girl in a wheel chair - Juliana - she just had surgery the day before. You see, Juliana was one of the children living at Light in Africa, a children’s home Mama Lynn founded in Tanzania, Juliana was brought here to have her legs amputated and then fitted with prosthetic legs. Mama Lynn’s story is quite amazing, as she cares for up to 300 children who are orphaned or abandoned, have HIV/AIDS and/or are physically or mentally challenged. I introduced myself and said I would love to have a cup of tea with her and learn about her organization. We met a few days later and talked for hours. I fell in love with her story and Light in Africa. I couldn’t believe the compassion, love and warmth coming from this amazing woman who - eleven years ago - sold everything she had and went to Africa because of a calling. There was something there - I had to get this story to the masses - so I jumped at the chance to get some press about this wonderful woman and what she’s doing for the children and people of Africa; especially about Juliana and her story of coming to America. While speaking to Mama Lynn that day and hearing her story and all the other stories she had to tell about her journey, every one of them being more fascinating than the next, I was captivated. I suggested that she write a book. She needs to tell her story! She needs to tell her Light in Africa story. I suggested a publisher that I knew for her to contact and explore if it would be a viable opportunity for her and them. She emailed them, they called – they chatted - and after a few emails and phone calls back and forth, they agreed to help and now want her to write her story! That’s where I come in. Mama Lynn is almost finished writing her story. I went to Light in Africa to learn everything I can about this nonprofit Light in Africa - about Tanzania - about the children and about Mama Lynn. I want to make sure I can tell this story to everyone who will listen; I want to get her the press she deserves and needs to tell the world about what she is doing and how it’s impacting the world. Travel with me and read about my adventures as next week, I’ll tell you about my “Extreme Massai Experience”, saving 7 week old twins and me running with the bulls! I want to make a difference - a change. If you’d like to make a donation or want more information about Light in Africa - you can visit www.LightInAfrica.org.
