OUR MBA FAMILY HAS SUFFERED A TRAGIC LOSS and we would like to share some family information with you. David Potts (son of Paula Krause, our Office Manager for over 23 years), age 44 of San Anselmo, was tragically taken by a rogue wave at the Nakalele Point Blowhole while vacationing in Maui with his family and friends. David, an avid sportsman and adventurer, was passionate about the outdoors, especially cycling, skiing and skydiving. David approached everything with an incomparable spirit, a great attitude and excelled at anything and all he tried to do. He met fatherhood the same way, trading in extreme sports for his new joys and responsibilities. David loved to gather people together and freely offered his home, his cooking and his desire for others to feel welcome. David was a tremendous host and thrived by making sure his family and friends alike were well cared for and always having a good time. David’s enthusiasm for life, his infectious smile and relaxed demeanor made him many friends and brought joy to all who knew him. He has left incredibly happy and lasting memories with his multitude of loved ones. He will not be forgotten. David is survived by his son Indigo, his fiance Tika, his mother Paula Krause father Paul Vincent, brothers Michael (Jacquie) and Matthew, sister Stephanie (Jeff), nieces Sydnie, Caylie, Talise and grandmother Betty Krause as well as numerous extended family members and close friends who will love and miss him forever. A trust account has been established for David and Tika’s son Indigo Harte Potts. Memorial gifts may be made to Indigo Potts at Bank of Marin with checks made payable to Paula Krause for benefit of Indigo Potts.

Governor Signs Supported Land Use Bill BY: Phil Vermeulen, Legislative Advocate Governor Jerry Brown recently signed a bill that we strongly supported that extends the life of active tentative subdivision maps and parcel maps for an additional two years. AB 208 (Fuentes; D-Sylmar) facilitates the smooth recovery of the housing market by extending the life of active tentative subdivision maps and parcel maps for a period of two years. As an urgency measure, the bill took effect immediately upon being signed. Our position has been that AB 208 will help California’s economy as well as local economies by legislatively extending the expiration date of existing and unexpired tentative tract and parcel maps, including approximately 2,500 tentative maps, containing nearly 330,000 housing units. These maps represent hundreds of construction projects, thousands of construction jobs and significant revenue to the state. This measure is necessary so that when the economy recovers, the housing sector and construction industry will be poised to recover as well, providing new affordable housing for California’s working families. Will California remap give Democrats two-thirds majorities? Sacramento Bee Columnist, Dan Walters, wrote earlier this week that Gov. Jerry Brown and his fellow Democrats in the Legislature were frustrated this year in seeking a few Republican votes to close the state's budget deficit by asking voters to approve billions of dollars in tax extensions. Support from at least two Republicans in both legislative houses was needed for the two-thirds majorities required to pass the special election constitutional amendment that Brown and Democrats sought.

Commissioners made a number of minor adjustments in their draft maps last week and are to have another review later this week in anticipation of releasing them for public review late this month and adopting a final plan in August. Analysts on both sides of the political aisle have plumbed the new maps for their political content – a factor the commission is not supposed to be considering – and agree they would give Democrats a very strong opportunity to win 27 Senate seats and 54 in the Assembly, two-thirds majorities in both houses. All 80 Assembly seats will be up in 2012, plus half of the 40 Senate seats, with the remainder on the ballot in 2014. Paul Mitchell, a Democratic political consultant who runs Redistricting Partners, is one of several analysts who have tracked day-to-day changes in the maps being drawn by the 14-member Citizens Redistricting Commission. He concludes that the Democrats' 27/54 goal is within fairly easy grasp, with several additional seats in both houses considered "swing" or winnable by either party. Tony Quinn, a Republican redistricting expert, last week sharply criticized the commission for, as he alleged, allowing partisan considerations to enter the process, and the state Republican Party is threatening to challenge the maps via referendum.

The 2001 redistricting, done by the Legislature and approved by then-Gov. Gray Davis, was a bipartisan gerrymander aimed – successfully – at freezing the partisan status quo. The new maps, however, make big As the months-long talks collapsed, the Democrats said they'd adjustments to improve the likelihood of Latino gains in the Legislature, and that also translates into try to pick up enough seats in the 2012 elections to secure two-thirds margins, thereby cutting the GOP out of future tax fractional Democratic gains. issues. And the redistricting plans now nearing approval by For instance, two Senate districts now held by the new independent redistricting commission could set the Republicans Anthony Cannella and Sam Blakeslee stage for achieving that goal, either in 2012 or in 2014. For would acquire strong Democratic registration margins. Republicans who had actively pushed for the adoption of an independent reapportionment commission back in 2008 when Both were among the five senators who negotiated with it was adopted by the voters, this could become the reality of Brown on taxes. the old saying "be careful what you wish for!"

Safety Topic: Managing and Reducing Stress Stress is an everyday fact of life. When you have too much stress, or it lasts too long, it can be harmful. At work, unmanaged stress can lead to illness or injury, low productivity, and unsafe acts. But not all stress is bad. The best level of stress is that amount which improves a person’s performance without causing harmful side effects. You can manage stress and make it a more positive force in your life when you identify your stressors, understand them, and take charge of the stress by relieving or preventing it. Using alcohol or drugs will not help you manage your stressors. In some cases, it can add to your stress. In any stressful situation, you have choices. You can: Accept it - Some things are out of your control and all you can do is accept them and learn from them. Seek helpful advice or support from friends or coworkers. Avoid it - Stay away from recurring situations or sources of constant frustration. Remove yourself from the situation or rearrange your surroundings. For time related stress, plan ahead. Alter it - Communicate your feelings to your employer or supervisor. Change your feelings or ask someone else to change their behavior. Ask for help with your job or take advantage of your company’s Employee Assistance Program. Adapt to it - Learn to cope with the situation or look at it as an opportunity. Focus on the positive things in your life. Try to make time for the activities you enjoy. Maintain a healthy lifestyle including exercise, meditation, and a balanced diet. It is important for employers, supervisors, loss control personnel, and workers to recognize stressful jobs, situations, and signs of stress in themselves or in their coworkers before accidents, injuries, or violent incidences occur.

Safety Topic: Manejo y reducción del estrés El estrés es parte cotidiana de la vida. Cuando una persona tiene demasiado estrés, o éste dura demasiado tiempo, puede ser nocivo. En el trabajo, el estrés sin control puede conducir a una enfermedad o lesión, baja productividad, y acciones peligrosas. Pero no todos los niveles de estrés son malos. El mejor nivel de estrés es aquel que mejora el desempeño de la persona sin ocasionar efectos nocivos. Usted puede manejar su estrés y convertirlo en una fuerza positiva en su vida cuando identifique las fuentes del mismo, las entienda, y conquiste su estrés aliviándolo o evitándolo. El uso del alcohol y las drogas no ayuda a manejar las fuentes de su estrés. En algunos casos, puede inclusive aumentar su estrés. En cualquier situación estresante, usted tiene alternativas. Por ejemplo, usted puede: Aceptarlo – algunas cosas están fuera de nuestro control y lo único que puede hacerse es aceptarlas y aprender de ellas. Busque buenos consejos o apoyo de sus amigos o compañeros de trabajo. Evitarlo – Manténgase alejado de situaciones recurrentes o fuentes de frustraciones constantes. Aléjese de la situación o cambie el arreglo de sus alrededores. Para el estrés relacionado con el tiempo, planifique con antelación. Cambiarlo – Comuníquele sus sentimientos a su patrón o supervisor. Trate de cambiar sus sentimientos o pídale a la otra persona que cambie su comportamiento. Pida ayuda con su trabajo o tome provecho del Programa de Asistencia a Empleados de su empresa. Adaptarse – Aprenda cómo manejar la situación o véala como una oportunidad. Enfóquese sobre las cosas positivas de su vida. Trate de hacer tiempo para las actividades que disfruta. Mantenga un estilo de vida saludable, incluyendo ejercicio, meditación y una dieta balanceada. Es importante para los patronos, supervisores, personal de control de pérdida de empleados y para los empleados mismos, reconocer tareas y situaciones estresantes en el trabajo, así como los signos del estrés en sí mismos y en sus compañeros de trabajo antes de que ocurran accidentes, lesiones o incidentes de violencia. 11◆ Page 11 Page 17 Marin Builders Association ◆ WEEKLY BULLETIN
