his weekend’s forecast is for sunny skies, pleasant temperatures and a lot of water! Songkran, the traditional Thai New Year (April 13-15) is also known as the “Water Festival” for obvious reasons as celebrants use water to wash away bad luck. This weekend, Fremont's Wat Buddhanusorn (Buddhist temple) will facilitate the entrance of a new year with prayers food, music, dancing and, of course, water. Songkran is a Thai word which means "move" or "change place." On Songkran Day the sun moves into the Aries zodiac.

land, sprays of cool water are welcome. Songkran is celebrated by families as they present gifts to each other and wash the hands of elders with scented water as a sign of respect. Resolutions of future good behavior are also common. Traditional activities include visiting temples to pray and give food to the monks. Images of Buddha at monasteries and household shrines are cleansed using scented water. Many thoroughly clean their homes. Songkran is a time of introspection; individuals reflect upon acts of kindness and how generosity and compassion brings peace, happiness and wellbeing into their lives. The first day of Songkran (traditionally April 13) is subdued with a focus on Buddhism and its reverence for life. Known as Maha Songkran, this day bids

farewell to the outgoing year, acknowledging responsibilities, making offerings to Buddhist monks and “merit-making” (an act of giving that demonstrates generosity toward others). On Wan Nao (April 14), the day between the old and new years, meritmaking continues in the morning with more offerings of food to the monks and family members. In the evening, sand is brought to temples to build pagodas called "phra chedis sai" and what began as ceremonial sprinkling of water has evolved to huge water fights. New Year's Day falls on April 15 and includes merit-making rites and the presentation of food and other offerings to Buddhist monks; donations are made; fish and birds are released; and lustral water is poured

over respected elders as a gesture of respect and reverence. A related practice is tying strings around the wrists of others expressing good wishes for the New Year and using white powder or a pasty substance to ward off evil. At Fremont’s Wat Buddhanusorn ("temple for the dedication of the Buddha"), Saturday’s observance of Songkran will center on reflection and introspection of the transition to a new year. Sunday will feature Thai classical dance, music, raffles and prize drawings. Sunday afternoon, streams of water from squirt guns and pails of water make an appearance so visitors who want to join the fun should be prepared to get wet. There is no admission fee for Songkran festivities but visitors can purchase food and drink. Songkran (Thai Traditional New Year) Saturday, Apr 16 (Buddhist reflection & introspection) 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Sunday, Apr 17 (dancing, games, music) 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Wat Buddhanusorn 36054 Niles Blvd., Fremont (510) 790-2294 www.watbuddha.org

ases of pet poisons are more prevalent during Spring months. Thousands of pets suffer needlessly each year from household poisons and chemicals including snail bait, pesticides, houseplants, and people food. Many poisons can be fatal and result in death. The following are the most common poisons that we see in this area: Pyrethrin toxicity Frequently we are presented with a case where a pet owner has put a topical flea control medication available over the counter. The most severe fatalities occur when flea control for dogs is applied to cats by accident. Pyrethrin compounds are different from newer chemicals in that they are non-selective in their action; they can affect insects, animals, and humans. The chemical is usually applied to the back of the neck and is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. It then creates havoc

causing neurological symptoms such as tremors, twitching, and eventually seizures. If you suspect your pet has been exposed to such chemicals, a veterinarian should be consulted immediately. If treatment is instituted early, there is a good chance for a full recovery. Snail Bait Unfortunately, snail bait comes in pellets that mimic dog food and is often flavored so that pets find it quite tasty. Very little poison needs to be consumed (less than 1 teaspoon per 10 lbs) to cause severe symptoms. We are often presented with pets that have ingested this poison exhibiting uncontrolled tremors, shaking, and sometimes seizures. Old-time veterinarians would call this illness, “Shake and Bake syndrome.” This name arose due to the body systems affected by this toxicity. Initially pets would have seizures; excessive muscle activity would cause very high

temperatures. If ingestion of this deadly toxin is suspected, a visit your veterinarian is imperative. This poison also affects the liver and can cause long term liver problems.

your pets. If your pet ingests chocolate, please visit your veterinarian for treatment. Clinical signs of toxicity include vomiting, diarrhea, restlessness, hyperactivity, seizures, and death.

Marijuana Toxicity Pets will frequently be exposed to marijuana when consumed in baked products, marijuana cigarette buds, or somebody’s “stash.” Unfortunately, diagnosis is usually only made after careful questioning and a reluctant confession that the pet may have found their friend’s drugs. Almost all pets will exhibit neurological signs such as hallucinations, depression, seizures or even coma. If treated and recognized quickly, most animals recover completely.

Rat Poison Mankind has been fighting rodents for centuries and will continue to do so. Unfortunately, the most common rat poisons are highly toxic to pets. The poison makes the rat hemorrhage (“bleed out”) into their body and the same happens to pets when they ingest these deadly chemicals. Unfortunately, symptoms are not obvious and noticeable when the pet becomes weak and/or cold. If your pet is ill and rat poison is used in your house or yard, immediately inform your veterinarian. Treatment is successful if diagnosed early and treated aggressively. Pet poisoning is a common issue facing pet owners. Over 90% of poisoning cases occur

Chocolate Toxicity Chocolate poisoning is common in dogs. The poison also affects cats, birds, rodents, and reptiles. It is important to keep chocolate goodies away from

‘Nerve: Poise Under Pressure, Serenity Under Stress, and the Brave New Science of Fear and Cool’ by Taylor Clark Imagine that everybody’s naked. No, wait, that won’t work. That’s just going to make you feel more self-conscious. And taking deep breaths only makes you lightheaded.

Nerve: Poise Under Pressure, Serenity Under Stress, and the Brave New Science of Fear and Cool by Taylor Clark and prepare to boldly bare your bravery. Long ago, when business suits were made of pelts, nature

Though it sounds pathetically easy, breathe. Many times, after the crisis passes, you’ll notice you haven’t been doing that. Talk things out, or write them down. Prepare yourself for what could happen, and practice. Act brave. Embrace uncertainty and accept lack of control. Try the STOP method. And if all else fails, learn to laugh at yourself: humor really is a good stress reliever. Feeling fidgety about the future? Are you a basket-case over business these days? Then you’ll want to read this book, because what you’ll learn in “Nerve” really can help you feel a little calmer and braver. Author Taylor Clark isn’t afraid to dig deep inside our heads to look at the physiological reasons for fear, and he makes the science easy to understand. He interviewed people who were under tremendous stress, yet had learned to squash their mousi-

But talk about pressure! Our ancestors never had to make a cross-town meeting in 15 minutes through rush-hour traffic. They never had a stock market to watch, and the ol’ cave probably didn’t have a mortgage. Those ancient natural brain reactors are still within us but modern life has made our anxiety keener. The truth is, though, that fear is all in your head – literally. In both hemispheres of your brain, there’s an almondshaped spot called the amygdala, a kind of Fear Headquarters in the noggin. The amygdala not only subconsciously monitors your surroundings 24/7, but it also decides if it’s time for fight, flight or, as Clark points out, freezing - which is the third F in the fear factor. Telling yourself to relax only makes things worse and you can’t avoid stressors in real life, so what can you do to hold off the heebie-jeebies?

ness and summon their moxie. He offers expert advice that will make you feel like an office warrior and through it all, Clark takes his own advice and makes us laugh. Fear is often irrational. Worrying is a waste of time, since 90% of it won’t come true. Anxiety can be overcome with practice. “Nerve” is worth reading – and that’s the bare truth. c.2011, Little, Brown and Company $25.99 / $28.99 Canada 320 pages

bestowed the gift of fear upon our ancestors. When faced with danger, their brains took over, adrenaline flooded their bodies, and they were able to flee without dumbly having to consider the sharpness of a raging mastodon’s tusks or the accuracy of an incoming javelin.

Farmers, airlines exempt from derivatives rules

CASTRO VALLEY | TOTAL SALES: 8 Highest $: 730,000 Median $: 400,000 Lowest $: 276,000 Average $: 443,563 ADDRESS

WASHINGTON (AP), Apr 12 - Companies that trade derivatives solely to guard against volatile price swings won't have to meet new federal collateral requirements. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission advanced the exemption Tuesday as part of new regulations for derivatives, investments whose value depends on the future price of some other investment. The rules, which were included in last year's financial regulatory law, require banks and businesses that trade derivatives to put up millions of dollars to cover their losses. The aim is to cut down on the kind of risky trades that contributed to the 2008 financial crisis. But airlines, oil companies and farmers are among hundreds of businesses that won't be required to do so, if they use derivatives to concontinued on page 17

Farmers, airlines exempt from derivatives rules continued from page 16 trol unforeseeable costs, such as extreme weather that damages crops. Also Tuesday five other regulatory agencies, including the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department's Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, advanced collateral and capital requirements for the banks and other financial institutions they oversee. The rules proposed by those agencies don't give a specific exemption to companies using derivatives to hedge against risk the way the CFTC proposals do. They require banks selling derivatives to companies to collect collateral from them in cases where they consider a company to be a credit risk or unable to meet its obligation if the bet soured. That brought objections from a coalition of major U.S. companies that has been lobbying for the exemption and from Wall Street's biggest trade group. But some experts said the big industrial and agricultural companies and airlines that use derivatives are financially sound. At any rate, they said, the financial industry's own practice now requires banks to demand collateral from companies viewed as vulnerable to default. Lawmakers blamed the $600 trillion derivatives market for hastening the financial meltdown, and added new regulations when it passed the financial overhaul last year.

The rules proposed Tuesday apply to derivatives traded outside of clearinghouses. Clearinghouses settle derivatives trades and their member firms must back them, so collateral is always required. Regulators expect that the majority of derivatives trades will occur in clearinghouses. More than 200 major U.S. companies that use derivatives, including Ford Motor Co., Boeing Co., General Electric Co. and Shell Oil Co., have lobbied in coalitions for an exemption from the collateral requirements. Powerful lawmakers from both parties have supported the exemption and pressed regulators to adopt it. Consumers could be hurt without the exemption, the companies and lawmakers say. Companies would have to divert sorely needed working capital to provide the collateral, and that could mean higher costs passed on to consumers. It could also force many to hold back on hiring. One challenge is figuring out who qualifies for the exemption. Some businesses, like international food company Cargill Inc., trade derivatives both to hedge against price swings and also to speculate for financial gain. That highlights a challenge for regulators, who are still working through the parameters of the exemption.

Bond downgrade could increase SF's borrowing costs AP WIRE SERVICE SAN FRANCISCO (AP), Apr 13 - Borrowing money for construction projects could cost San Francisco more after a major rating agency downgraded $2.6 billion in city bonds. Fitch Ratings issued its decision on Tuesday, saying the city had shrinking reserves and had used short-term

fixes to balance its budget in recent years. City Public Works Chief Ed Reiskin tells the San Francisco Chronicle that the costs of borrowing hundreds of millions of dollars the city needs for construction projects, including rebuilding San Francisco General Hospital, will be higher. But City Controller Ben Rosenfield says other factors may temper the downgrade by Fitch. They include

ratings by the other major agencies, Moody's Investors Service and Standard & Poor's. Those agencies are expected to announce their ratings in the next several weeks. --Information from: San Francisco Chronicle, http://www.sfgate.com/chronicle

e are getting close to tax filing deadline. For 2010 returns, the tax return deadline is April 18, 2011 since April 16th is Emancipation Day, and April 15th is declared a Legal Holiday in Washington DC. Some of you may be looking at paying the IRS and looking for tax reduction strategies after year-end. Here are some tips: 1. Remember to report all income. It is hard to defend the exclusion of income. Reconcile your 1099s and Form W-2 to your tax return. 2. If you have a business or rental property, carefully review all expenses that were ordinary and necessary for the production of income. 3. Look for deductions to charities and costs associated with charitable work. Charities are required to give you receipts for goods and services donated to them during the year. But some donations may not be the responsibility of the charity. For example, did you donate goods or services like driving the scouts to camp? You can deduct 14 cents a charitable mile. The tax court also said

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

that hiring a babysitter while you performed charitable work is also deductible. Out-of-pocket costs for charitable services add up to more deductions. 4. Can you make a contribution to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)? If under 50 years of age at the end of 2010, you can contribute the smaller of $5,000 or taxable compensation for 2010. If over 50 years of age at the end of 2010, you may contribute up to the smaller of $6,000 or earned taxable compensation in 2010. The amount that you are allowed may be reduced depending on your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI). IRA contributions can be made up to April 18, 2011 and count as a 2010 deduction for income tax. 5. Do you have any tax credits that you can claim? Following is a list of credits to consider: earned income tax credit, Health coverage credits, child tax credit, child and dependent care credit, education credit, foreign tax credits. If you qualify for tax credits they may reduce your tax dollar for dollar. 6. If you inherited property and then sold at a gain, remember to step your cost basis up to the FMV at the date of death. This is often overlooked when preparing tax returns. 7. If you are a member of an LLC, did

Page 29

you incur any supplemental business expense that you did not submit for reimbursement? You may claim these expenses on Form 2106, Employee Business Expense, or Schedule SBE for Supplemental Business Expense. 8. If you were out of work, remember to review all costs associated with job hunting and starting a new job. (resume writing, travel expenses to interview for new position and moving expenses). For 2010, unemployment is also not subject to tax. 9. If you were fortunate to sell founder stock, be sure to review if you qualify for a 1202 exclusion on your capital gain. Depending on when you started your business you may exclude up to 75% of the gain from regular and alternative minimum taxable income. Also, starting in September 2010 (and continuing for 2011 and 2012), if you started a new Qualified Small Business you may exclude up to 100% of the gain if the stock is held for five years. 10. Remember it is okay to take the deductions if you have substantial authority for the expense. Substantial authority includes private planes to visit your rental property, paying kids in your business, and business convention expenses in Hawaii or Bermuda. Know the tax rules and how to tax advantage of lowering your income tax burden.

Budget tricks helped Obama save programs from cuts BY ANDREW TAYLOR ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (AP), Apr 12 - The historic $38 billion in budget cuts resulting from attimes hostile bargaining between Congress and the Obama White House were accomplished in large part by pruning money left over from previous years, using accounting sleight of hand and going after programs President Barack Obama had targeted anyway. Such moves permitted Obama to save favorite programs - Pell grants for college students, health research and “Race to the Top” aid for public schools, among others - from Republican knives, according to new details of the legislation released Tuesday morning. And big holes in foreign aid and Environmental Protection Agency accounts were patched in large part. Republicans also gave up politically treacherous cuts to the Agriculture Department's food inspection program. The details of the agreement reached late Friday night just ahead of a deadline for a partial government shutdown reveal a lot of one-time savings and cuts that officially “score:” as cuts to pay for spending elsewhere, but often have little to no actual impact on the deficit. As a result of that sleight of hand, Obama was able to reverse many of the cuts passed by House Republicans in February when the chamber ap-

proved a bill slashing this year's budget by more than $60 billion. In doing so, the White House protected favorites like the Head Start early learning program, while maintaining the maximum Pell grant of $5,550 and funding for Obama's “Race to the Top” initiative that provides grants to better-performing schools. Food aid to the poor was preserved, as were housing subsidies. Instead, the cuts that actually will make it into law are far tamer, including cuts to earmarks, unspent census money, leftover federal construction funding, and $2.5 billion from the most recent renewal of highway programs that can't be spent because of restrictions set by other legislation. Another $3.5 billion comes from unused bonus money for states that enroll more uninsured children in a program providing health care to children of lower-income families. Still, Obama and his Democratic allies accepted $600 million in cuts to community health centers programs, $414 million in cuts to grants for state and local police departments, and a $1.6 billion reduction in the Environmental Protection Agency budget, almost $1 billion of which would come from grants for clean water and other projects by local governments and Indian tribes. Community development block grants, a favorite with mayors of both political parties, take a $950 million cut.

The National Institutes of Health, which fund critical medical research, would absorb a $260 million cut, less than 1 percent of the NIH budget, instead of the $1.6 billion cut sought by House Republicans. Family planning programs would bear a 5 percent cut rather than being completely eliminated. Homeland security programs would have to take their first-ever cut, though much of the 2 percent decrease comes from a $786 million cut to first responder grants to state and local governments. The IRS would see its budget frozen but be spared the 5 percent cut sought by House Republicans. About $10 billion of the cuts already have been enacted as the price for keeping the government open as negotiations progressed; lawmakers tipped their hand regarding another $10 billion or so when the House passed a spending bill last week that ran aground in the Senate. For instance, the spending measure reaps $350 million by cutting a one-year program enacted in 2009 for dairy farmers then suffering from low milk prices. Another $650 million comes by not repeating a onetime infusion into highway programs passed that same year. And just last Friday, Congress approved Obama's $1 billion request for high-speed rail grants - crediting itself with $1.5 billion in savings relative to last year.

The underlying issue is long overdue legislation to finance the day-to-day budget of every Cabinet department, including the Pentagon, for the already half-completed 2011 fiscal year. The measure caps 2011 funding for such operating budgets at about $1.2 trillion. About $10 billion of the cuts comes from targeting appropriations accounts previously used by lawmakers for so-called earmarks, those pet projects like highways, water projects, community development grants and new equipment for police and fire departments. Republicans had already engineered a ban on earmarks when taking back the House this year. Lawmakers also claimed $5 billion in savings by capping payments from a fund awarding compensation to crime victims. Under an arcane bookkeeping rule - used for years by appropriators - placing a cap on spending from the Justice Department crime victims fund allows lawmakers to claim the entire contents of the fund as budget savings. The savings are awarded year after year. While the maximum Pell Grant won't be cut, the measure eliminates a recently enacted year-round grant that proved far more costly than expected. That will produce small savings at first, about $500 million this year, but a total of $35 billion over the upcoming decade. Even before details of the bill came out, some conservative Re-

publicans were assailing it. Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., said he probably won't vote for the measure, and tea party favorite Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., is a “nay” as well. And in another blow Tuesday, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, announced he'll oppose the bill in a vote Thursday. Jordan's opposition is noteworthy because he chairs the Republican Study Committee, with a membership that makes up a sizable majority of GOP lawmakers. “Americans want us to reach higher, act bolder, and remember the job we were sent here to do,” Jordan said. The White House rejected GOP attempts to block the EPA's ability to issue global warming rules and other reversals of environmental regulations. Obama also forced Republicans to drop an effort to cut off Planned Parenthood from federal funding, as well as GOP moves to stop implementation of Obama's overhauls of health care and Wall Street regulation. The administration also thwarted a GOP attempt to block new rules governing the Internet, as well as a National Rifle Association-backed attempt to neuter a little-noticed initiative aimed at catching people running guns to Mexican drug lords by having regulators gather information on batch purchases of rifles and shotguns. Anti-abortion lawmakers did, however, succeed in winning a provision to block tax-

BY ANNE D’INNOCENZIO AP RETAIL WRITER NEW YORK (AP), Apr 07 - Shoppers shrugged off higher gas prices and cool temperatures to give retailers a surprisingly solid March. Revenue reports Thursday from retailers from Costco to Victoria's Secret extend the streak of strong spending from late last year and suggest that an improving economy and recent job growth are outweighing pressure from higher pump prices. Retailers collectively saw a 2 percent increase over last March, the International Council of Shopping Centers said. That compares with expectations for flat revenue or a small decline. The increase is better than it looks because this year's late Easter depressed results by 3 to 5 percentage points, analysts say. "Neither the lack of the Easter Bunny, nor cool temperatures nor spiking gas prices could keep consumers at bay," said Ken Perkins, president of RetailMetrics LLC, a research firm. "There is still a significant amount of pent-up demand. I think the job recovery is catching on." Many stores reported revenue gains that handily beat Wall Street expectations. Target Corp. reported a smaller decline than Wall Street expected. Saks Inc.'s sales surged beyond estimates, proving once again that the wealthy are buying status goods from Gucci bags to Hermes scarves. Gap Inc. was one of the few big losers, reporting a decline that was worse than expected and warning of disappointing earnings. Japan's earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis also took a toll on Gap, which operates 150 stores there.

cut $407 million below last year, almost 20 percent. The Army Corps of Engineers, which funds flood control and inland waterway projects, will absorb a $578 million cut, rep-

The figures are based on revenue at stores open at least a year and are considered a key indicator of a retailer's health. Many analysts had expected retail revenue to decline slightly in March, largely because the late Easter will shift most holiday spending into April. The calendar quirk meant retailers faced their toughest comparison in at least 10 years, Perkins said. An Easter that fell on April 4 helped drive last March's revenue figures up 9 percent. This year, Easter is on April 24. Analysts were particularly worried about how rising gas prices would hurt shoppers' willingness to buy, particularly low to middle-income shoppers. In March, gas averaged about $3.53 a gallon, according to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service, up about 75 cents per gallon from March 2010. Many other prices also are increasing. Food prices are expected to rise 3 percent to 4 percent this year, with the steepest hikes in dairy, meat and coffee. Clothing sellers are raising prices to offset soaring costs for labor in China and for raw materials like cotton. Consumers surveyed in March for the Conference Board's Consumer Confidence Index voiced concerns about inflation and stagnant incomes. The index fell sharply from a three-year high in February, reversing five straight months of improvement. But analysts say that March's revenue results shows an improving job picture is supporting spending. Companies added workers at the fastest two-month pace since before the recession began. Costco said Thursday that revenue at stores

open at least a year, excluding membership fees, climbed 13 percent last month. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected a 7.4 percent increase. Taking out rising gas prices and strengthening foreign currencies, sales at stores open at least a year climbed 8 percent. Target posted a 5.5 percent drop in March, smaller than the 6.4 percent expected. The discount chain says groceries were its bestselling category. Clothing also sold well, particularly workout clothes. The later Easter particularly hurt sales of candy, clothing and toys. The discounter expects a happy Easter, with the figure rising in the mid-teens percentage range in April. Among department stores, Cincinnati-based Macy's Inc. reported a 0.9 percent increase, better than expected, as shoppers picked up new spring clothing. "March sales exceeded our expectations and demonstrated that our spring fashion assortments are hitting the mark with customers," CEO Terry J. Lundgren said in a statement. J.C. Penney Co. reported a 0.3 percent decline in March, less than the 3.4 percent decrease analysts expected. Limited, based in Columbus, Ohio, reported a robust 14 percent gain, sharply higher than analysts expected, driven by strength at its Victoria's Secret stores. The company said a later Easter this year hurt revenue in stores open at least a year by 3 to 5 percentage points. Analysts expected a much smaller 1.5 percent gain.

F

ive Day Florida Vacation in the Sun! Well, that’s what was planned. But the best-laid plans can turn into lemons, and if you’ve got a mash-up like that you may need to spike your lemonade. First rule of thumb, never make your reservations without all the information you need, and double-checking with your mates. For example, it is a four hour drive from Orlando to Ft. Myers, and if you arrive at 6 p.m. that will seem torturous. Making separate reservations from Orlando to Ft. Myers will cost you big time, and when connecting to a 4 p.m. flight you have to get to the destination airport before the flight leaves, not an hour later. And those are just the pieces that you can screw up yourself. But it was a good vacation. We were flying out of SFO on Sunday, with Virgin America, direct to Orlando, arriving mid-afternoon, then Southwest Airlines to Ft. Myers; we settled into the leather seats, individual TVs on, tray tables up, mood lighting bathing the cabin, ontime departure. One hour out of SF0 the pilot announces that we have to turn around and return to the airport because on push back from the gate we bumped the wing tip air sensor. “We?” That’s like your teenager coming home with a three tires on the car and saying, “Mom. We have a problem.” Our pilot can’t see any damage, but the mechanics have to check it out, and the passengers are stoical. So, our full plane,

WHAT’S HAPPENING’S TRI-CITY VOICE

packed with children and a baby who incessantly calls out "Yaya Yaya," turns around. Back we fly for a total of three hours airtime and nothing to show for it. But really, it was a good vacation! I have to say that Virgin America handled the unexpected and strange delay with intelligence, humor and aplomb, and expected the same from its passengers. During what came to be a two and a half hour layover back in SFO, the crew kept us informed and up to date on the jet’s condition, the mechanics findings,

and our estimated departure. Finally, about five hours after our original take- off, we taxied out to the runway, again, and it was wheels up, again. To make a long story just a bit longer, we missed our connection to Ft. Myers, Virgin America paid for an overnight stay at what we dubbed the “Marriott Refugee Center,” and we flew out the next day at 11:30 a.m. Now for the good vacation part. The destination was an island off southwestern Florida, in the Gulf of Mexico. My parents had rented a cottage on Sanibel Island to escape the mid-Atlantic mid-winter. Why Sanibel? Dad said he chose it for what it didn't have: high rises, crowds, tourist attractions, and a lot to do. What Sanibel Island does have are old-fashioned guesthouses and motels, narrow, 30 mph roads,

they’re pushing their luck with that one. The food itself was actually quite good, from my Seared Scallops, with Curried Cauliflower and Sweet Potato with Golden Raisins, to Miss B’s Fish Stew overflowing with clam, mussels, grouper, shrimp, and scallops. The tasty but stranger items included a Grilled Romaine (the whole head grilled, really, with Caesar salad dressing), and Lobster Pot Pie, which was too heavy to be characterized as a “small plate.” The “fun” atmosphere was subdued, just this side of geriatric. Our own table seemed practically raucous in comparison. The interesting discovery of the evening, though, was noticing that the La Posta Malbec wine had its web address burned right into the cork: the internets piggybacking on tradition.

We saw whole families visiting with grandpa and grandma, generations fishing, swimming and building sand castles together, exchanging exclamations of surprise and pleasure at shell- shingled towers, or a good cast of a line into the surf. We spent the warmer portion of the day trolling the surf’s edge gathering shells. Look closely at a shell – it really is a miracle of nature, perfectly suited to its purpose, tough, light, waterproof. Each shell has a signature shape and distinctive markings. The mollusk inhabitants of these shells are too numerous and varied to describe here, but if you find an inhabited shell throw it back and let the little guy live a bit longer.

There is a national wildlife refuge called J.N. “Ding” Darling, small enough to drive through, paddle around in a canoe or take a tram tour. There were plenty of pink spoonbills, ibex, and herons, but the alligators all seemed to be hiding.

I saw that flash, a green candle flame in the center of the sinking orb, and felt as though I had won the brass ring. Sunsets, shells, flashes, sand, sea and, finally, warm air was short-lived though. Our return journey was Thursday and we reluctantly repacked our suitcases and flew out of Ft. Myers to board our final Orlando to SFO flight. No joke – the flight was delayed for 3 hours due to weather in San Francisco; late departure, late landing as we had to circle Nevada while Air Force One took off from SFO. Home at 1:30 a.m. and work the next day, but despite all, still dreaming of Sanibel’s beaches. It was a good vacation.

n Monday, April 11, water polo and swim coach Joseph Martinez passed away at the age of 28. The cause of his death is unknown, but the situation was very unfortunate. After falling in his San Jose home, Martinez complained of difficulties breathing and was taken by ambulance to the local hospital ER, where he passed away. His family only knew that he wasn’t breathing properly; the cause of his death will be known in six to eight weeks. Coach Martinez was the coach of the boys and girls swim teams at Mission San Jose High School, the girls water polo team at MSJ, the Ohlone

Renegades’ men’s and women’s water polo team and the summer swim league for the Mission Valley Barracudas. He has been involved in aquatic programs around Fremont for over 10 years, and has played an instrumental role in the coaching staff for many teams. He coached at MSJ for over eight years, and was a dedicated coach to both his high school and league teams. “Joe Martinez was one of the hardest working coaches I had on our athletic staff,” proclaimed MSJ Athletic Director Thomas Thomsen. “He spent countless hours of his day dedicating himself to his athletes. His mentorship was invaluable to so many young adults. Joe coached high school athletics the way it should

be coached: integrity, honesty, passion and sportsmanship, along with the pure love of his sport. The many lives he touched will always remember Joe for his never ending love and friendship. “I will miss Joe's laugh and willingness to always do the right thing even if it meant having to bench his best swimmer or player to teach him/her a life long lesson,” Thomsen added. “Joe will always be remembered in my heart as someone who cared about every one of his athletes. As an athletic director, I never had to worry about his athletes being in good hands; he made my job easy to do when it came to his programs.” Water polo was Martinez’s passion, and he radiated that

energy onto all of his players. He took his love for the sport, and used it to help others excel in water polo. Connor Williams, coached by Martinez, said “Joe Martinez was an incredible man who was living his dream and shared it with others in such a profound and significant way that changed everyone’s lives.” Alyssa Castillo, a student at MSJ, has been coached by Martinez for many years, and had this to say about the coach. “Joe was a great coach who was always there for me and for anyone who needed him. He did a lot for all of us, meant a lot to all of us, and we are all going to miss him dearly.” Martinez was loved greatly by both his players and their

parents, and genuinely cared for each individual’s improvement. He kept a record of every time of every swimmer from every season, and did his best to better the players not only as athletes, but also as people. On Saturday, April 16, Mission San Jose High School will celebrate Martinez’s life on what would have been his 29th birthday. Thomsen has extended an open invitation to all those interested in attending. It will be held at the MSJHS gym, starting at 7 p.m., running for approximately two hours. There will be speakers sharing stories, pictures, slide show and “a time to be together to share memories with others,” says Thomsen.

such as former NFL stars Jerry Rice and Ronnie Lott, and to make a meaningful contribution to a charitable cause while enjoying one of the Bay Area’s finest golf courses. “It’s a challenging course, very challenging. I’m thrilled to be out here though,” said NFL Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz. “It’s a great course, but the bottom line is it’s an opportunity to be involved in charity.”

The first group of players teed off at 8:15 a.m. Despite the morning chill, conditions were tolerable until about 9:30 when it started to rain. Many players elected to take a break in an attempt to wait out the rain, which lasted for about an hour. “It’s a little bit wet, a little bit cold, but it’s a really nice course,” said Jeff Davidson from Clayton. “I played here last week and it was absolutely gorgeous. It’s really a beautiful course.” Although inconvenienced by the morning

course, great shape. I love the surroundings; you’re out here in nature. It’s pretty cool.” Proceeds from the Pro-Am went to First Tee, an organization devoted to helping children of all backgrounds discover and explore the game of golf. The actual tournament, the Nationwide Tour’s 2011 Fresh Express Classic, began on Thursday morning, April 14, and is scheduled run through Sunday, April 17. All four days of action will be covered live on the Golf Channel. Last year’s champion, Kevin Chappell, took home a first place prize of $108,000.

Accuride International and the Belt Sander Racing Association (BSRA) announce a special race event set for May 19 at E.B. Bradley Company on Corporate Avenue, Unit B-C, in Hayward. Competitors will vie for trophies with souped-up and stock-belt sanders designed to roar down a 75-foot wooden track.

First-, second- and third-place trophies are presented, as well as a special Judge’s Award. BSRA’s circuit has two more races scheduled for the West Coast at E.B. Bradley Company locations in Portland, Ore., and Kent, Wash..

BY SIMON WONG Lavender Serenity massage therapy has opened at 731 A Street, Suite 205, Hayward. The brainchild of Dadgar, the business is located in the same building as Angels Hospice which she founded in 2008 to care for people with terminal illness and their families. Angels Hospice offered complementary alternative therapy to children and other patients but contracted those services to third parties. Dadgar decided it is preferable to provide those treatments at affordable rates nearby for chronically ill patients and the general public. “Lavender Serenity is about mind, body and spirit,” says Arezou Dadgar, a former nurse practitioner who has been in healthcare for 24 years. “We want people to experience the benefits of complementary therapy. It reduces tension, aches and pain, improves circulation and vitality.” Relaxation is just one goal of massage therapy. It can also relieve depression, lower blood pressure, release toxins, interrupt headaches and migraine patterns, improve the range of motion and even increase job performance and productivity. “We look forward to welcoming all our clients and playing an integral role in contributing to their health and wellness,” added Amanda Lee, Spa Manager. Hayward Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Kim Huggett, staff and ambassadors joined Dadgar, Lee and Lavender Serenity staff for a ribbon cutting ceremony on April 5, 2011, to celebrate the new business.

world’s largest non-governmental hospital ship and is staffed with 450 crew members – who serve as paying volunteers. “We have a unique model. Without the faithful service of our volunteers and those who support them, we would not exist today,” says Mercy Ships President and Founder Don Stephens. Mercy Ships volunteer crew come from more than 40 nations, working together to serve the poor of West Africa and other developing countries. This year during National Volunteer Week (April 10 – 16) Mercy Ships highlights the state of California, the most represented state among the United States crew members onboard the Africa Mercy. “I was surprised and proud to learn that California was the one state in the U.S. with the most Mercy Ships volunteers,” says Paris Ivory, Hospital Ward Secre-

poor in West Africa. The ship is staffed with world-class surgeons, ophthalmologists, maritime professionals, engineers, nurses, teachers, cooks, writers, photographers, and sales staff – just to name a few. It functions as a floating city so there is an opportunity for every skill set. Each volunteer is there to help transform lives through surgeries, dental care, mental health education, agriculture instruction and other programs. Ivory worked as a consultant for Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, California before quitting her job to join Mercy Ships in West Africa. She has always had a passion for serving others. Volunteering is not just a hobby for her – she wanted to weave it into her life. That’s why she is spending a little over five months without pay to serve the forgotten poor onboard the Africa Mercy. Ivory searched extensively for a volun-

teer opportunity where she could impact others. Mercy Ships quickly rose to the top of her list. “Mercy Ships was hands-down the one that aligned with my core values as a Christian as well as my passions for healthcare and serving the poor and needy. Serving Mercy Ships allows me to blend both of my passions in service for the Lord.” Shifting from a steady career in a bustling metropolitan area to a volunteer job in a developing country is not something considered typical. But Mercy Ships sees it every day. The most recent study from the Corporation for National and Community Service shows that the national volunteer rate is the highest it has been since 2005 at 26.8 percent. The increase in Americans volunteering is a trend enthusiastically welcomed by the team of international recruiters for Mercy Ships. “When more people seek out volunteer work, our job gets a little easier,” says Angie Fadely, International Director of Recruiting at Mercy Ships. “It’s a privilege to place our volunteers in positions that literally transform the lives of those who are suffering.” The Californians onboard the Africa Mercy were surprised and excited to hear that they were the most-represented state in the U.S. Ivory thinks this is good news for California, as “there are many causes that Californians support – from environmental to fighting cancer – and it’s nice to see 20 people who have made a tremendous sacrifice to support a cause that Christ was very passionate about, the forgotten poor. Just one of the added perks is we get back just as much joy as the happiness we provide to those we serve.” For more information visit www.mercyships.org.
