Sunset Ridge Park To Be Built At last, the City of Newport Beach (City) can build Sunset Ridge Park in West Newport. The California Supreme Court (Court) has denied a petition filed by the Banning Ranch Conservancy (Conservancy) that asked the Court to review the California Court of Appeals decision to deny the Conservancy’s challenge to the project’s environmental impact report (EIR). The Court also denied the Conservancy’s request for depublication of the Court of Appeal’s decision. These decisions end a protracted legal battle waged by the Banning Ranch Conservancy. In May 2011, Orange County Superior Court Judge Gail Andler denied the Conservancy’s challenge to the City’s approval of the EIR. The Conservancy appealed that decision. In December 2012, the City again prevailed when the California Court of Appeals upheld Judge Andler’s decision. The Conservancy appealed the decision to the California Supreme Court. And now, in March 2013, the California Supreme Court’s decision brings the Conservancy’s lawsuit to a close. “We are elated that our residents will finally have a park to enjoy in

West Newport,” said Mayor Keith Curry. “It’s a travesty that the Conservancy took this matter to three different courts and wasted a great deal of Newport Beach taxpayers’ money along the way. The goal was to block a community-supported park project. The Conservancy failed.” Throughout the nearly three years of litigation, the Conservancy has maintained that the City’s Sunset Ridge Park project was linked to the proposed, private development of the adjacent property and that the City’s EIR was flawed. The two lower courts outright rejected the alleged linkage between the park and the proposed Banning Ranch development and determined that the EIR adequately analyzed the park’s environmental impact. “The Conservancy is supported by a small group of people, many of whom don’t live in Newport Beach,” explained Council member Nancy Gardner. “I found their willingness

to use our community park project to further their outside agenda astounding. Defending our project was an expensive battle, but this victory means that generations of kids and families get to enjoy the park. Focusing on that aspect makes this fight worth every penny.” The 13.7-acre Sunset Ridge Park site is located at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Superior Avenue. The Sunset Ridge Park plans include a baseball diamond

that overlaps in area with two soccer fields, a children’s playground, a grass warm-up field, pedestrian paths around the perimeter of the park, view areas, a shade structure, and a restroom/storage facility. The California Coastal Commission approved the project’s Coastal Development Permit in August 2012 and the City awaits issuance of the permit and anticipates breaking ground on the park project later this spring.

Spring 2013 Runway Trends By ShawnTe Pierce

Pretty Watercolors

The Cinched Waist

Some of the more lovely uses of blue involved watercolorlike prints. Beautifully feminine dr esses, bl ouses, and ski r ts floated down the spring 2013 runways. These watercolors also can be given an edge as was seen on the Versace runway. I just have to add that Donatella knocked it out of the park with this spring collection!

Women come in all shapes with each silhouette as beautiful as the next. However, the classical view of the womanly form has always been perceived as one with a small waist. This dates back to ancient civilizations, such as the ancient Greeks, who valued the tiny “wasp-waist” as an ideal of beauty. While back in ancient times and even in modern history, this ideal was achieved via body manipulation, today it is all about creating the illusion of a smaller waist. For spring, that cinchedwaist look has dominated the fashion runways.

Graphic Prints Shades of blue looked beautiful on the New York runways for spring 2013. Prints in blue included pretty florals, paisley, tribal-influences, geometric, and even ink blot-looking ones on various garments from suits to full-length gowns. One of the best uses of blues in prints was seen on the Monique Lhuillier runway.

Traditional Construction One of the easiest ways for a designer to give the illusion of a smaller waist is to construct garments that divide the torso at the “natural waist”. On the spring runways so far, dresses were constructed by having the bodice and skirt sewn together. This basic construction creates a definite seam at the natural waist that draws the eye to the waistline and visually takes the waist in a bit. Erdem’s spring 2013 made use of this technique during London Fashion Week. Banding and Belting Along with traditional construction techniques designers also opted to use banding and belts to “cinch” the waist. For spring 2013, a band of fabric between one and two inches wide was sewn at the waist of dresses and jumpsuits. Having a traditional waistband for skirts, pants, and shorts also helped to create the illusion of a cinched waist. Jackets and vests featured belts circling the waist cinching it in. Designers Carolina Herrera and Matthew Williamson used this method to draw attention to the waist for spring 2013. Bells, Flares, and Peplums These shapes are returning with garments that are full and flare out from the waist for spring 2013. They give curve to the hip area ad by default, they also make the waist smaller. While some of the exaggerated bell shapes may not be hits next spring, the femiPage 4

So be afraid to take The cinched waist feels right the color plunge. for spring as it gives a feminine silhouette when done with simplicity. For women who seek to look slimmer in the waist area or curvier at the hip, this spring 2013 runway trend is a perfect fit. Do not be discouraged if you cannot find any of the runway looks in your price range next spring. Just grab a belt or scarf and do a little cinching at the waist yourself! All Things Blue Spring is the time to experiment with color. The season m ake s s uc h ex p eri mentati o n easy with the many bright colors that pop up in nature. However, for spring 2013 it seems more of an aquatic palette seems to reign with many designers. The color at the center of this palette is blue.

If you already love blue then next spring gives you something to look forward to. For those who tend to shy away from the color, lose that trepidation this fall/winter. There will be a shade of blue that will look good on you come next spring.

Fashion Trends: Donut-Sized Watches and Eiffel Tower High Heels By Laurie Jo Miller Farr Is bigger better in fashion these days? After decades of expensive, slimmed down thinner-than-a-dime models, watchmakers are responding to a demand for the wide screen look on the forearm of both men and women. Stilettos and have moved from bordello to runway to mainstream and turning a normal sidewalk or the dance floor into a treacherous danger zone.

piece measures 64.4mm wide and 18mm thick. Leaders in the watch industry refer to the monster-sized trend as “wrist presence”, according to the New York Times. Victorinox Alliance weighs in at 40mm retailing for $495. Swatch gets into the game, seeing unisex bestseller demand for big cases from 45mm starting at $70.

Tank-like timepieces Tom Cruise sported his titanium tank-like timepiece as early as 2008. Runway risk Only 29 of the U-1942 limited edition The sky’s the limit.

The new Shoppers are bucking the trend on a World War II Italian military diver news is that bloggers say Christian Louboutin’s 2013 collection is not featuring as many platforms, making the pitch from heel to toe even steeper. Heels appear to be pencil thin yet taller at the same time. Judging from recent trips through the department store sales, the shoe departments back up those claims.

“THE BRILLIANCE OF BRAHMS” FEATURING HOST AND PIANIST ORLI SHAHAM Romantic and riveting: Pacific Symphony uncovers the intricate mastery of Johannes Brahms’ chamber music during “The Brilliance of Brahms,” the last Café Ludwig concert this season. Pianist Orli Shaham, whose playing the London’s Guardian recently called “perfection”performs and leads Symphony musicians in an array of Brahms’ treasured classics for strings and piano with Concertmaster Raymond Kobler and Bridget Dolkas on violin, Robert Becker and Meredith Crawford on viola, and Timothy Landauer and Kevin Plunkett on cello. The program opens with the composer’s Sonata No. 1 in E Minor for Cello and Piano, which paved the way for fully orchestrated cello concertos to come. Then, with expressive beauty and unlimited interpretive possibilities, Shaham performs Brahms’ “Six Pieces for Piano,” dedicated to the love of his life, Clara Schumann; the second to last work published during his lifetime, this piano set shows unprecedented fluidity and grace. The concert concludes with the uniquely adoring String Sextet No. 2 in G Major, written about an earlier love whom Brahms met when he was

just 25. “The Brilliance of Brahms” takes place at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 28, in the intimate Samueli Theater (located next to the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall). Ticket prices ($60 and $75) include afternoon tea, coffee and desserts for patrons to enjoy in a coffeehouse setting. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (714) 755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org. “People always ask me, ‘Who’s your favorite composer?’ and I say, ‘Well, you can’t really have a favorite composer because that would be like choosing your favorite child,” says Shaham, “but if I had to choose, it would be Brahms.” The opening cello sonata features the Symphony’s Principal Cellist Landauer—called “a cellist of extraordinary gifts” by The New York Times—in a duet with pianist Shaham. Brahms himself was an accomplished pianist, and also studied the cello in his youth to the point of mastering virtuosic showpieces. Using his familiarity with both instruments, Brahms opens the work with a brisk and fluid first movement, continues onto elegant dance rhythms and finishes with fugal ele-

ments and counterpoint inspired by Bach. Next, Shaham performs solo “Six Pieces for Piano.” Shaham, the concert’s pianist and host, is revered across the globe. She has played in some of the world’s most prestigious concert halls and has gained considerable fame internationally. The Chicago Tribune recently referred to her as “a firstrate Mozartean,” and London’s Guardian said Shaham’s playing was “perfection” during her recent Proms debut with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. The highly coveted musician received her first scholarship at the age of 5 from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation. At 7, Shaham and her family traveled to New York City so that she could study with Nancy Stessin, and a year later, she became a scholarship student of Herbert Stessin at The Juilliard School. Shaham was also the

recipient of the Avery Fisher Career Grant and the Gilmore Young Artist Award, two highly esteemed prizes given to further her musical talent. In addition to her musical background, Shaham holds a degree in history from Columbia University.

2013 KSBR Birthday Bash Jazz Festival Celebrates 25 Years

Celebrating its 25th year, the 2013 KSBR Birthday Bash Jazz Festival, presented by Saddleback College radio station KSBR (88.5 FM), returns to the Village Green at Oso Viejo Park in Mission Viejo, on Sunday, May 26, 2013. Organizers are excited to announce the second annual Taste of the Bash, which was a wildly successful element introduced last year and will again feature more than 25 restaurants showing off their finest creations. The Taste is an added value so those purchasing tickets to the concert will be admitted to the Taste of the Bash for no additional charge. The Birthday Bash is the

major fundraising event for KSBR. The unique event features more than 30 contemporary jazz artists with headliners often leaving their own bands behind to play with each other. Dave Koz, Joe Sample, Brenda Russell, Boney James, David Benoit, Hiroshima, Rick Braun, and Peter White are just a few of the musicians who have appeared in the past. Because of contractual obligations, many of the most popular artists cannot be announced until they actually step on stage, which makes the event even more fun and surprising. The event will once again include a special tribute to Veterans. Saddle-

back College’s Veterans Memorial is the most significant tribute to veterans at any community college campus in the nation. In recognition of this event and the role that the college’s VETS (Veterans Education and Transition Services) Center plays in the community, the festivities will include a color guard performance and a special musical tribute to kick off the concert. In addition, veterans and active military personnel may purchase general admission tickets for just $30 through KSBR’s Membership Services office: (949) 582-4501. Advance sale ticket prices begin at $55; $60 at the door. General ad-

mission tickets are available at www. KSBR.org, and beginning April 22 at the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center, and the Saddleback College Fine Arts Ticket Office (949-582-4656). A limited number of reserved VIP seats are still available at $110-$180 per person at www. KSBR.org. The concert takes place on Sunday, May 26, 2013 at Oso Viejo Park, 24932 Veterans Way, Mission Viejo. Gates open at 3:30 P.M.; Taste of the Bash from 3:30-5:00 P.M.; Military Appreciation Festivities at 4:30 P.M.; Music at 5:00 P.M.

Philharmonic Society of OC Raises over $175,000 The Philharmonic Society of Orange County presented its 2013 benefit gala, An Evening with MANCINI, at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, Samueli Theater. Chaired by Marta Bhathal and Marsha Anderson, An Evening with MANCINI was a musical tribute to legendary Academy Award-winning film composer Henry Mancini. Proceeds from the evening, which netted more than $175,000, benefit the Philharmonic Society and its nationally recognized Youth Music Education Programs. An Evening with MANCINI was generously sponsored by MIKIMOTO, the Originator of Cultured Pearls since 1893. Party attendees were welcomed with a cocktail reception in the Samueli Theater lobby and were treated to tray-passed hors d’oeuvres, including pistachio and herb crusted lamb skewers with violet mustard and canapés of smoked salmon and salmon caviar on pumpernickel toast. Guests also enjoyed glasses of “Pink Panther” cocktails as well as glasses of Heitz Wine Cellars’ 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2011 Chardonnay. Immediately after the reception, guests were led inside the theater, transformed into an elegant space with shimmering tablecloths, candelabras and flickering candles, and gorgeous décor elements by White Lilac. Chef Ross Pangilinan, Executive Chef of Leatherby’s Café Rouge, prepared a delicious three-course dinner catered by Patina, beginning with a scrumptious housemade butternut squash agnolotti. Guests then enjoyed beef tenderloin with butternut squash, baby carrots, cipollini, forest mushroom, and fingerlings, topped with a peppercorn sauce. Apple crumble tarts and chocolate peanut butter brownies completed the menu. The dinner was paired with wines from the evening’s wine sponsor, Napa Valley’s acclaimed Heitz Wine Cellars, featuring its 2011 Chardonnay and 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon. Guests were delighted as two-time Grammy-nominated recording and concert artistMonica Mancini, daughter of Henry Mancini, took the stage to perform a revue of her father’s iconic works. A Pink Panther-themed montage of title credits introduced her band members, including Grammy-winning musician Tom Scott on saxophone, Tom Ranier on keyboard, John Chiodini on guitar, Carlitos del Puerto on bass, Munyungo Jackson on auxiliary percussion, Mamiko Kitaura on piano, and Grammy-winner Gregg Field on drums. Accompanied by film highlights from the movies, Monica and her band’s performance included “It Had Better Be Tonight (Meglio Stasera),” “Shadow of Your Smile,” “Days of Wine and Roses,” and the ever-popular “Moon River” from the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Monica also sang the song “Two for the Road” in tribute to her parents’ marriage, a particularly poignant moment during the night with her mother, Ginny Mancini, in the audience. The evening included a live auction, featuring two wine packages, a gourmet dinner with Kaly and Dean Corey, a 16” Akoya Cultured Pearl Necklace courtesy of Mikimoto, and VIP concert experiences with meet-and-greet opportunities with conductors Gustavo Dudamel and Keith Lockhart. The Fund a Need portion of the evening directly supported the Philharmonic Society’s “Strike Up the Band!” program, which aims to put instruments into the hands of schoolchildren in Orange County. Offered at no charge to parents, students or schools, the Philharmonic Society’s Youth Music Education Programs have supplemented music education in Orange County for more than 50 years and helped inspire more than 5 million children with quality musical experiences. Prior to the Fund a Need, Philharmonic Society President and Artistic Director Dean Corey made a special announcement regarding a new matching gift opportunity, informing guests that every gift made during the Fund a Need would have double the impact, activating a matching gift of up to $1 million which will go towards Philharmonic Society programs. This $1 million challenge grant, in honor of the Philharmonic Society’s approaching milestone 60th anniversary, was made possible through the generous sponsorship of an Page 10

THE ROLLING STONES ARE BACK! “50 AND COUNTING” The Rolling Stones, who rocked London and New York in 2012, announced today that they will kick off their “50 AND COUNTING” tour in Los Angeles at the STAPLES Center. (Date TBA pending NBA/NHL playoff schedules.) The tour will come to Honda Center in Anaheim on May 15, with additional performances in Oakland, San Jose, Las Vegas, Toronto, Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia. “50 AND COUNTING” continues the exhilarating celebration of the band’s first 50 years—five decades of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood bringing their iconic music and ground-breaking stage shows to audiences around the globe. The Rolling Stones were recently crowned the ‘Best Live Band’ at the NME Awards in London, and over the past 12 months have thrilled fans with their release of a greatest hits collection, “GRRR!,” a groundbreaking documentary film “Crossfire Hurricane,” a photographic book “Rolling Stones: 50,” and have taken the stage by storm for their first live shows in many years. The tour is the band’s highly anticipated return to the stage. “’50 AND COUNTING’ has been pretty amazing so far,” said Jagger. “We did a few shows in London and New York last year…and had

such a good time that we thought…let’s do some more. It’s a good show. Lots of the classic stuff everyone wants to hear…with a few little gems tucked in here and there. The stage is shaped like lips and goes off into the venue so I get to run around in the crowd. It’s great fun to be able to get that close to the audience.” “From day one at rehearsals it sounded so fresh. You could tell that everybody was dying to get their teeth into it. It was like…open the gates…let us out!” said Richards. “Cause man, it is the life and blood of us to play in front of people.” Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-74, will be a special guest throughout the tour. The band will treat their generations of fans to an evening of classic Stones hits like “Gimme Shelter,” “Paint It Black,” “Jumping Jack Flash,” “Tumbling Dice,” and “It’s Only Rock and Roll,” curated with lesser known gems, and a cover or two.

The stage design for the tour is based on the band’s ubiquitous tongue and lips logo, which extends out into the crowd, allowing the Stones to interact directly with their audience. Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones’ set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones’ show.

When WEST SIDE STORY played the Pantages for five weeks in late 2010, it had Southern Californians clamoring for tickets to sold-out performances. Now, WEST SIDE STORY returns for a strictly-limited eight performance engagement, playing April 9 – 14, 2013. Tickets for WEST SIDE STORY may be purchased online at www. HollywoodPantages.com or www. Ticketmaster.com or by phone at 1-800-982-2787. Tickets may also be purchased in person at the Pantages Box Office and all Ticketmaster outlets. The Pantages Theatre is located at 6233 Hollywood Boulevard, just east of Vine Street, and the box office opens daily at 10am except for holidays. Based on Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, WEST SIDE STORY tells the story of star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria as they struggle to rise above the hatred and intolerance that surrounds them. It soars as the greatest love story of all time and remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and features such classics of the American musi-

cal theatre as “Something’s Coming,” “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere.” The 2009 Broadway revival of WEST SIDE STORY received considerable acclaim. The Associated Press says WEST SIDE STORY “remains Broadway’s best dance-driven musical. Five decades have not dimmed the extraordinary choreography or the score that pulsates throughout.” Variety says, “The true stars of WEST SIDE STORY are Jerome Robbins’ graceful, endlessly expressive choreography and Leonard Bernstein’s score, which still sounds bracingly modern a half-century after it was first heard. The music is a primal force.” WEST SIDE STORY is written by three theatrical luminaries: two-time Tony Award winner Arthur Laurents (book) and multiple Tony and Grammy Award winners Leonard Bernstein (music) and Stephen Sondheim (lyrics) in his Broadway debut. WEST SIDE STORY features scenic designs by James Youmans, costumes by Tony Award nominee David C. Woolard, lighting by Tony Award winner Howell Binkley and sound design by Peter McBoyle. WEST SIDE STORY features Ad-

dison Reid Coe as Tony, MaryJoanna Grisso as Maria, Michelle Alves as Anita, Theo Lencicki as Riff and Andrés Acosta as Bernardo. Rounding out the company of WEST SIDE STORY are Amber Ardolino, Yesenia Ayala, Lauren Cannon, Konrad Case, Blue Cervini, Max Chucker, Mark Deler, Erika Hebron, Dan Higgins, Matthew Krob, Greg London, Guy Mandia Jr, Thomas Mothershed, Louie Napoleon, Thaddeus Pearson, Josh Pins, Anthony Raimondi, J. Nycole Ralph, Tory Ramirez, Bridget Riley, Ricardo Rique-Sanchez, Arianna Rosario, Carolina Sanchez, Michael Shultz, Jeff M. Smith, Tony Thomas, Juan Torres-Falcon & Laura Volpacchio. The performance schedule for WEST SIDE STORY is Tuesday through Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 2pm & 8pm, and Sunday at 1pm & 6:30pm. Opening Night is Tuesday April 9th at 8pm. WEST SIDE STORY has a running

The band will also play London’s Hyde Park on Saturday, July 6 following a headlining appearance at UK’s Glastonbury Festival on June 29. The Rolling Stones “50 AND COUNTING” tour will be the band’s first venture with worldwide tour promoter AEG Live’s Concerts West.

FAMED AUTHOR JERRY ARGOVITZ BOOK SIGNING Book Author, Dr. Jerry Argovitz, is a professional football revolutionary whose bitter contract wars with the NFL lead to the current system of free agency. Dr. Argovitz will speak about his new tell-all book entitled “SUPER AGENT – THE ONE BOOK THE NFL & NCAA DON’T WANT YOU TO READ” at The Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, on the evening of Thursday, April 18 th from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., including a brief Q & A. Following his presentation, Dr. Argovitz will personally autograph his new book.

Saddleback College Steamroller WoodBlock Party 2013 The Division of Fine Arts and Media Technology is pleased to present Saddleback College printmaking students in their second annual Saddleback College Steamroller WoodBlock Party on Friday, April 19th from 10 am to 2 pm in the Fine Arts complex area. The art students will be printing their large format woodblocks using a three-ton steamroller at the Fine Arts Complex Theatre Circle. Community and student activities during this event include custom t-shirt printing, woodblock carving, sale of student prints, a food truck, a remote broadcast by KSBR and much more. Come join us and watch as the steamroller is driven over inked woodblocks and students “pull” their prints on paper and fabric. Prints will be on display for viewing at the event as they are created. The event is free and welcome to the public. The Art Department believes that a person’s reflection of life is manifested through his or her art. Students are able to fully appreciate artistic expressions through study, observation and experience. The art faculty and staff are committed to offering the strongest foundation in the arts that will allow students success in college as well as in their ongoing roles as artists. Page 16

Printmaking is the process of making artworks by printing, normally on paper. Printmaking normally covers only the process of creating prints with an element of originality, rather than just being a photographic reproduction of a painting. Except in the case of monotyping, the process is capable of producing multiples of the same piece, which is called a ‘print’. Each piece produced is not a copy but considered an original since it is not a reproduction of another work of art and is technically (more correctly) known as an ‘impression’. Printmaking (other than monotyping) is not chosen only for its ability to produce multiple copies, but rather for the unique qualities that each of the printmaking processes lends itself to. Prints are created by transferring ink from a matrix or through a prepared screen to a sheet of paper or other material. Common types of matrices include: metal plates, usually copper or zinc, or polymer plates for engraving or etching; stone, aluminum, or polymer for lithography; blocks of wood for woodcuts and wood engravings; and linoleum for linocuts. Screens made of silk or synthetic fabrics are used for the screen printing process. Other types of matrix substrates and related pro-

The Newport News

cesses are discussed below. Multiple impressions printed from the same matrix form an edition. Since the late 19th century, artists have generally signed individual impressions from an edition and often number the impressions to form a limited edition. Prints may also be printed in book form, such as illustrated books or artist’s books Saddleback College is located at 28000 Marguerite Pkwy in Mission

Viejo, just east of Interstate 5 at the Avery Parkway exit. Free parking is available in Lot 12.

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

My Tanzania Trip – Part 2 By Kelly Bennett I came to Tanzania to learn everything I can about Light in Africa. Started eleven years ago by Mama Lynn Elliott, Light in Africa is a home for children who have been abandoned by their parents because of having a disability (mental or physical), abandoned because of HIV/ AIDS, neglected or they’ve been orphaned. Many reasons these kids are orphaned is because their parents do not survive the common illnesses because of lack of health care. Women die at childbirth, many die from diseases that could have been easily treated, like malaria, respiratory problems, and simple infections. Fortunately, Light in Africa has dispensary’s set up. They are one day medical outreaches that have volunteer doctors that come from all around the world bringing medicine to treat people at the “clinic” for the ailments that folks have. When word gets out to the villagers that the doctors have arrived, there are hundreds already waiting. There are about 90 children living at Light in Africa. They have 5 houses,Tumaini (which means “hope” in Swahili) houses the special needs children, mostly all with cerebral palsy as well as the babies; Happy House has toddlers; Laughter House has girls ages 7 years to 10 years of age, Newcastle House is for older girls ages 10-15, and Rosemary House has younger boys ages 5-10. The older boys are in a group home a few miles from here. Where I’m staying is actually called TorchBearer. It’s a FOR profit company that provides accommodations in numerous forms, from guests houses (where I am sleeping) to camping. There is a store that has jewelry, clothes, baskets, and artwork made from the local villagers for purchase, a restaurant and a bar. The idea is for Torchbearer to expand to run safaris and tours and to employ more

people. ALL the money made from TorchBearer goes back into Light in Africa, the nonprofit organization to help them with their work. The “Extreme Maasai Experience” is one such tour that they’ve created and hope more people get to know as these two organizations hope to bring more tourism to Tanzania, and in return give back to the community with Voluntourism. I went on a car tour of the “Extreme Massai Experience” and it was quite a trek. It’s a walking tour of about 97 kilometers which is a little over 60 miles. Training adventure seekers in the survival skills of the Maasai warriors, the three-to-five day foot-trek through the heart of Maasai land immerses travelers in the clothing, food, culture, medicinal practices and practical skills used by the tribe. The experience culminates in a surprise Maasai celebration that many participants have said was the experience of a lifetime. While on the the car tour, we received a phone call that revealed two children (6 week old twins) were taken away from their mother. She had abandoned them, neighbors had called the police and complained of them crying. After a meeting with the social worker, it was determined that the twins were to be given to Light in Africa to be cared for. Such a beautiful boy and a girl - I call them “Prince” and “Princess” as I am now sponsoring these two precious babies. Their survival just increased to 100% at Light in Africa. Here they will learn that someone does love them, compassion for others along with confidence and self esteem to help them grow to self sufficient people who will hopefully pass the torch to the next generation of Tanzanians. Next week, join me as we build a kitchen and run with bulls! More information on Light in Africa can be found at www.LightInAfrica. org

Chemka Hot Springs is one stop on the “Extreme Maasai Experience” - it’s a natural hot spring where the water is cool and the trees make great shade from the hot sun. Page 18

Stopping at one of the Maasai schools, the kids were overjoyed to see us! Light in Africa donated study books to the 300 students.

We stopped and saw the food kitchen - it was calculated that in the 8 years Mama Lynn has had her food kitchen open, she’s fed over 625,000 children.

Prince and Princess, two adorable little twins I’m sponsoring!

My cottage I lived in for the 3 weeks I stayed in Tanzania. Complete with bed, dresser, shower and a flushing toilet - this was my home!
