Valley News - new look, same awardwinning local coverage

Rosie (left) and Gerry Wilson, owners of Wilson Creek Winery, married in 1953 and have led a life of adventure, kindness, and love.

Taken with toucans

Risk takers turned wine makers Like wine, love grows better with age. Gerry and Rosie Wilson’s devotion for each other has transcended six decades. Throughout their journey filled with twists, pratfalls and ascensions, they have created a legacy for their family and the community of Temecula through a strong, sturdy foundation of amour and marriage.

The year was 1952, Rosie was ahead of her time, a recent college graduate turning into a career woman setting up a center for Easter Seals in Boise Idaho. Gerry was a fresh-faced member of the Air Force ROTC program in town. The two shared some social circles but did not officially meet until they shared a train ride back to their hometowns to celebrate Christmas. Rosie was heading to Iowa and Gerry to Minnesota.

“He was tall and blond and charismatic,” said Rosie. Rosie said a friend wanted to introduce her to him earlier and when she saw him on the train, she introduced herself. After the holidays, the two by chance happened to be on the same train heading back to Idaho. The two struck up a friendship, hung out with friends, played cards and skied. “I didn’t know how to ski,” said Gerry, “but I was told Rosie loved

to ski so I pretended.” “I found out Gerry couldn’t ski when we got to the top of the ski lift and he didn’t know how to jump off,” said Rosie. Rosie said she stayed with him for a while before skiing ahead and waiting for him at the bottom. Gerry did not let Rosie get too far out of his reach – six months after they met the two were engaged and

Students practice CPR during week-long event at Great Oak High School

Alex Groves Staff Writer

Dan Sitar from Inland Valley Medical Center demonstrates basic CPR methods to interested students at Great Oak High School.

Hundreds of Great Oak High School students lined up each day from 12 to 1 p.m. to learn basic CPR skills during a one week event from February 3-7 that was facilitated by the school’s brand new CPR club. The “Sidewalk CPR Event” was attended by two different fire agencies as well as officials from Inland Valley Medical Center who helped students practice proper compression techniques on dummies, according to CPR club parent Dawnelle Anderson. Anderson is the mother of 14-year-old high school freshman

Dawson Anderson, who founded the club along with three other friends (Jake Gambino, Brenden Jensen, and Jayson Palmer) after he became inspired to learn CPR. During a summer trip not long before the start of the school year, Dawson witnessed his mother save one of his friend’s lives. The friend had gone along with the Andersons and appeared to be fairing well when his heart unexpectedly stopped. Dawnelle immediately turned to her experience as a staff member at Inland Valley Medical Center and performed CPR, saving the friend’s life. It was that kind of quick-thinking

Synthetic turf to be placed in Murrieta Sports Park Bevi Edlund Special to the Valley News Football and soccer players who play at Los Alamos Hills Sports Park in Murrieta could be playing on the same turf as NFL players. The current turf at the sports park will soon be removed from the football and soccer fields and replaced with synthetic fields. Construction will be done by Sprinturf, whom have experience

in placing synthetic turf in an NFL field, a Murrieta city requirement. Why experience in an NFL field? “The NFL has valuable players and they’re going to look for a safe product, and they have the resources beyond what we have,” said Jim Holston, assistant city manager, who presented information to the council. “This helps to make sure [the bidders] have a

The Valley News, founded in 2000, has a new format starting this week. The tall tab, which used to be 11 inches wide by 16 inches tall, is now 11 in. wide by 22 inches tall. “While I have always been a fan of the tall, tabloid size we’ve had since 1997, it just made sense to jump to broadsheet,” said publisher Julie Reeder. “In addition to immediate economic advantages, it allows us greater creativity with layout, the use of standard advertising sizes for the agencies we work with, and the ability to accept inserts that didn’t fit into our tab format. We also now have the ability to do more sections, which makes it nice.”

Most people like to think that they have some kind of master plan for their lives, but for Jerry Jennings fate came disguised as a pair of toucans in a San Fernando Valley pet store in 1976.

Temecula becomes city in transition

New faces fill ranks of top staff Tim O’Leary Staff Writer A pair of high profile dismissals and a surge of retirements have fueled a clean sweep of Temecula’s upper echelon over the past two years. Temecula officials say they recognize, but are not deterred by, the across-the-board turnover at the top. The turnover was inevitable, they say, and it will inject new ideas and practices into Temecula’s operations as the city prepares to celebrate its silver anniversary late this year.

Hard News Man, son accused of killing 16-yearold to stand trial MURRIETA – A father and son accused of fatally stabbing a 16-year-old Lake Elsinore boy and wounding his friend during a confrontation must stand trial on murder charges, a judge ruled on Feb. 10. Fernando Moreira Aresta, 44, of Lake Elsinore, and his 17-year-old son, Anthony Aresta, were arrested last August in connection with the deadly assault three months earlier on Bobby Henderson. Following a preliminary hearing at the Southwest Justice Center, Riverside County Superior Court Judge Angel Bermudez found there was sufficient evidence to bound the elder Aresta over for trial on charges of first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon and a sentence-enhancing allegation of using a deadly weapon – in this case,

a knife – to commit a felony. Bermudez also found sufficient evidence for Anthony Aresta to be tried for murder. The judge set a post-preliminary hearing arraignment in the case for March 14. The younger Aresta is being held at Southwest Juvenile Hall. His father is being held in lieu of $1 million bail at the Smith Correctional Facility in Banning. According to sheriff’s investigators, the fatal stabbing occurred around 11:30 p.m. on the night of May 25, 2013, near the intersection of Garfield and Monroe streets. Deputies were called to the location to investigate an assault and found Henderson and his 18-yearold male friend, not identified, suffering from stab wounds, investigators said.

Henderson was lying on the ground, unconscious, and was taken to a hospital, where he died a halfhour later, according to Sgt. Todd Torrenti. Witnesses told investigators that the teen, schooled in martial arts, was coming to the aid of the 18-year-old when he was stabbed. The defendants were reportedly settling a score, possibly related to a theft, when they allegedly attacked the 18-year-old. Torrenti said the victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Deputies found a blood trail leading away from the location of the assault. Investigators spent several months on the case before submitting it to prosecutors for review, culminating in the defendants’ Aug. 22, 2013 arrests.

Temecula woman pleads guilty to foster care scam TEMECULA – The former owner and CEO of a Riverside foster family agency pleaded guilty on Tuesday, Feb. 11 to embezzlement and was immediately sentenced to three years and four months in prison. Temecula resident Vivian Lieska Benn, 40, pleaded guilty to two counts of embezzlement by a public officer in a plea agreement at the Riverside Hall of Justice.

Benn, who ran Family Hope Foster Family Agency, also admitted to a sentence-enhancing allegation of committing multiple felonies in the taking of more than $100,000 and less than $500,000, according to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office. One count Benn pleaded guilty to is for embezzlement from 2004 to 2009 and the second count is for crimes

from 2010 to 2012. Two other counts were dismissed as part of the plea deal. Both sides also agreed to a restitution amount of $450,000, according to the District Attorney’s Office. In May 2009, the Riverside County Auditor-Controller’s Office audited the Department of Public Social Services, including several foster family group homes and foster agencies, one of which was Family Hope. The audit found that about $1.2 million of payments made to Family Hope by the Department of Public Social Services was “unaccounted for,” according to the District Attorney’s Office. The District Attorney’s Office started investigating in June 2012 and determined found that from 2004 to 2009, “Family Hope FFA received millions of dollars of public money from DPSS intended for the care of foster children,” according to the District Attorney’s Office. Further investigation found Benn had also embezzled from 2010-2012, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Alex Hassinger lived in Temecula from 2001 to 2009 before moving to Texas due to his position as the national sales manager for LubriSyn. Hassinger, who now lives in New Braunfels near San Antonio, spends part of each December in Las Vegas at gift shows and other events associated with the National Finals Rodeo. For the 2013 NFR and gift shows which took place Dec. 5-14, 2013 LubriSyn increased its presence at the Roper Cowboy Marketplace Gift Exposition at the Mandalay Bay. “It was pretty much a banner year for us and we were extremely excited about everything we did in Las Vegas because we did much more than we did in past years. Our sales were extremely strong and a lot of that was due to the time and effort we put into sponsorships,” Hassinger said. LubriSyn had a sponsorship with Group W which manages the Roper Cowboy Marketplace. Dr. Steve Allday, the veterinarian who developed LubriSyn, was featured on billboards around Las Vegas and on posters at the Mandalay Bay. “We had a lot of new customers,” Hassinger said. “Across the board we saw existing clientele but a lot of new clientele, which I was very excited about.” LubriSyn is a sodium hyaluronate nutritional supplement used for the treatment of joint pain and inflammation. In July 2005 Hassinger became LubriSyn’s regional representative, and in 2008 he became the national sales manager. LubriSyn was a sponsor of the Cowboy Marketplace arena. “That afforded the opportunity to have Dr. Allday do veterinary seminars which were a huge success,” Hassinger said. LubriSyn took advantage of its increased opportunities prior to NFR through social media and its sponsorship of Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and Women’s Professional Rodeo Association members. “We did a really good campaign heading up to NFR,” Hassinger said. “The other piece of the puzzle that worked extremely well was we doubled our booth size at Mandalay Bay and we were able to display our entire line of products,” Hassinger said. In addition to its products for horses, dogs, and humans, in early 2013 the company launched LubriSyn LVS for show steers and show pigs. LubriSyn’s colostrum supplement Max-Strum was also launched in early 2013. LubriSyn also launched a lip balm called A-Ha, although that was a giveaway rather than a sales product at Cowboy Marketplace. “We got huge responses from

Association sanctioned a Cowboy Christmas Gift Show, giving visitors to the National Finals Rodeo city (NFR has been in Las Vegas since 1985 after spending 20 years in Oklahoma City) activities during the day. Hassinger had attended the Cowboy Christmas Gift Show as a visitor, but LubriSyn had not previously exhibited there until Hassinger utilized a booth at Cowboy Christmas in 2005 to make inroads into the Western discipline. Cowboy Christmas attracts between 150,000 and 175,000 visitors during the 10 days coinciding with NFR. The gift shows at the Mandalay Bay and elsewhere in Las Vegas are not official PRCA events, although the PRCA does not discourage those shows. Approximately three-quarters of the Cowboy Christmas vendors return the following year and the booths sell out by summer, so the other gift exhibitions allow opportunities for new exhibitors. In 2006 LubriSyn had booths both at the Convention Center and at Cowboy Marketplace. “It’s been a really good proving ground to step up in other disciplines of horses across the country,” Allday said. “We’re a big believer in rodeo and support it,” Hassinger said. “We’re really excited to go out there.” Allday’s interviews during NFR included a show on RFD-TV, a national television channel dedicated to serving the needs of rural America and agriculture. (RFD stands for Rural Free Delivery, a U.S. Postal Service innovation in the 1890s which provided for mail delivery to boxes on rural roads rather than forcing rural residents to travel to a post office several miles away.) LubriSyn also participated on RFD-TV’s Cowboy Shopping Network show and had a discount for products purchased using the television program code. “It helped us get a good measuring stick,” Allday said. LubriSyn sponsored two 2013 NFR qualifiers: team roper Charly Crawford and tie-down roper Caleb Smidt. Crawford had not won a go-round during his first six NFR competitions, but he won twice during 2013. “We’re excited for Charly. We’ve been associated with him for about seven years,” Hassinger said. “Charly’s been a great sponsor for us, used the products for a long time.” Crawford and Allday participated in veterinary seminar at the Mandalay Bay arena. Chad Masters, who was injured early in 2013 and did not qualify for NFR, also participated in a seminar with Allday. “We hope to continue that with Dr. Allday having seminars every year,” Hassinger said.


that and how good it was,” Hassinger said. The lip balm was especially helpful earlier in the show, when temperatures dropped below 30 degrees. “The first week in Vegas was extremely cold,” Hassinger said. Hassinger felt that the visitor traffic at the Mandalay Bay was larger than he had ever seen. LubriSyn also had booths at the NRS Shopping Experience trade show at the MGM Grand (NRS, the title sponsor, stands for National Roper’s Supply), the Cowboy Christmas Gift Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and the South Point Western Gift Show. “We kind of saw that across the board, which is a good sign for everybody,” he said. “The NFR for us is the biggest show of the year. We draw a lot of clientele that are not just Western disciplines,” Hassinger said. “It’s good for us to be there displaying all of our products.” Allday held seminars at both the Cowboy Marketplace arena and at the NRS Shopping Experience arena. His topics included colic prevention and treatment, worming and vaccination, soundness problems common across disciplines, hoof care, and pre-purchase examinations. Allday, who received both his undergraduate degree and his veterinary medicine degree from Texas A&M University, also hosted question and answer sessions. “Can’t tell you how pleased we were with the response and the amount of participation,” Allday said. “It’s a good stepping stone.” The Cowboy Christmas Gift Show could be considered LubriSyn’s expansion from horse racing into Western disciplines. Hassinger’s career as a racehorse trainer included eight years at the San Luis Rey Downs Thoroughbred Training Center; he spent six years with Allen Paulson and two years with Laura de Seroux. Hassinger lived on Paulson’s farm for the six years he was a Bonsall resident. Allday lived in Fallbrook from 1991 to 1996 when he was Paulson’s veterinarian. Allday now lives in Shelbyville, Kentucky. In addition to his eight years at San Luis Rey Downs, Hassinger was also a public trainer in Kentucky for five years between his stints with Paulson and de Seroux. Hassinger left de Seroux to take a position with Godolphin Racing; he spent six weeks in Dubai before being transferred to the Godolphin stables at Santa Anita. Hassinger spent two years with Godolphin before joining LubriSyn. The term “Cowboy Christmas” initially referred to the rodeos during the Fourth of July weekend, when a cowboy could enter multiple rodeos and receive significant earnings for suitable performances. In the 1980s the Professional Rodeo Cowboys

Paul Young Special to the Valley News Increasing labor costs and flat revenue require Riverside County to adhere to a conservative spending plan for the rest of the current fiscal year and into 2014-15, according to a report being reviewed by the Board of Supervisors. The Executive Office’s midyear analysis of county finances shows

that most agencies are on track to end 2013-14 in the black, but pressure on the treasury remains an ongoing concern as the county faces an estimated $77 million in higher labor expenses over the next year. The rising costs stem from collective bargaining agreements reached over the last three years with labor unions that represent more than 90 percent of the county workforce. A sheriff’s recruiting drive – undertaken at the Board of Supervisors’ direction – to add 500 deputies to the county payrolls is also lengthening the expense column, according to the midyear report. The Sheriff’s Department and the Riverside County Regional Medical Center projected the largest deficits by year end – $35 million for the sheriff, and $84 million for the medical center. The latter is in the early stages of a major restructuring that county officials hope will curtail cost overruns and make the facility more competitive. County CEO Jay Orr pointed out that assessed property valuations are predicted to increase a meager half-percent this year, leaving property tax income virtually unchanged, while sales tax revenue and receipts from building permits are likely to be “flat.” The county’s discretionary income at midyear is projected to be $625 million, compared to $591 million in fiscal year 2012-13. Though the modest increase is encouraging, county officials cautioned that future revenue growth remained tied to uncertain variables, such as the length and strength of the real estate market recovery. Orr said non-public safety agencies will have to absorb labor cost increases through the end of the current fiscal year, though there would be exceptions. The county is holding about $194 million in reserves. According to documents, agencies projected to end the fiscal year with money to spare include the Office of the Assessor-Clerk-Recorder and the Office of the Treasurer-Tax Collector. The first hearings on the 2014-15 fiscal year budget are tentatively set for April 2.

STAFF from page A-1 “Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen the entire executive team turn over for whatever reason,” Greg Butler, assistant city manager, said in a recent interview. Over the long term, he said, the city will overcome any adjustment challenges and emerge as a strong team. “It is refreshing and it will help keep the city sharp,” he said. It is uncertain whether the revolving door among Temecula’s department heads will spill over into the ranks of the City Council. The council – despite decades-long growth and traffic issues – has had few new faces since Temecula became a city and nearly quadrupled its population. The retirement of City Clerk Susan Jones, who recently stepped down to move to Florida, marks the seventh department head or top leader to leave Temecula since late 2011. That exodus has forced the city to rebuild its leadership team through a combination of promotions and outside hires. Two open department head positions are due to be filled in the coming weeks or months. Besides bringing in a wave of new talent, the string of personnel decisions could test the hiring mettle of City Manager Aaron Adams, who recently observed his one-year mark on the job. Adams, who began his Temecula career as an intern, climbed to his current post after a rapid succession of city administrators. Shawn Nelson, who held the city manager’s job for more than a decade, said the need to reshape Temecula’s executive team should not come as a surprise. “We had a lot of long-term stability, which was great for Temecula, but you can only have that for a limited time,” Nelson said in a recent telephone interview. Nelson, who is working as a contract advisor to Menifee, said he expects Adams to succeed in crafting a robust group that will serve the needs of a changing city. “I think what (Adams) is doing is building a new team,” Nelson said. About 28,000 people lived in Temecula when it became a city in December 1989. Many of its early administrators and department heads were in the early or middle stages of their careers. A long period of stability followed, as retirements were rare and some managers, including Nelson and Adams, left the city for short periods before returning at higher level positions. The exits and retirements acceler-


ated after Herman Parker, Temecula’s community services director, left in November 2011 to accept a similar position for Santa Barbara County. About that time, sluggish tax revenues prompted the city to offer early retirement incentives to several managers as a way to trim personnel costs. A year later, Grant Yates, a top Temecula executive, was picked from more than 70 candidates to be hired as Lake Elsinore city manager. He had worked for Temecula for 21 years, and his duties there included deputy city manager, personnel director, contract negotiator and emergency services coordinator. Within a month, a wave of unprecedented personnel turmoil swept through City Hall. City Manager Bob Johnson was placed on paid administrative leave, a move that was followed by a similar action pertaining to Genie Wilson, Temecula’s finance director. Both officials were soon released by the city. Those dismissals marked the first disciplinary actions to publicly unfold against top Temecula officials since the city incorporated. They were unusual for Temecula because of its reputation for scant turnover on the council and its upper management. With the departures of Johnson and Yates, Adams was left in charge of Temecula’s day-to-day operations. He initially worked under the title of acting city manager, and soon was hired as interim manager and then permanent manager. Yates’ position was not immediately filled. In March 2013, the results of a pair of national recruitment efforts were announced as Temecula filled the positions held by Parker and Wilson. Kevin Le Von Hawkins left his job as community services director for the city of San Bernardino to take the same position in Temecula. Jennifer Hennessy, Chico’s finance director, accepted that post in Temecula. A city press release issued at that time noted that Adams “directed” the recruitments and had a key role in the interviewing and screening processes. “Further, Mr. Adams personally conducted extraordinary background investigations to ensure the city of Temecula is acquiring top talent to lead city staff to more successes,” the release stated. Adams subsequently focused on filling the open assistant city manager position. Another nationwide recruitment effort was launched, and more than 275 applicants responded. In August, the city announced that Greg Butler, who was then serving as the city’s public works director, would

be promoted to the new position. At that time, Butler’s 21 years of public service work included 14 years in Temecula. Butler’s focus as assistant city manager will primarily be public works, community development, human resources, information services and emergency response functions, according to a press release issued at that time. Butler’s promotion came about the time word circulated that Patrick Richardson, Temecula’s planning director for the past seven years, would retire on Dec. 19. A three-month national recruitment effort ended with a city announcement two weeks later that identified his replacement. Armando G. Villa, who accrued more than 20 years of public service in his career, was hired from among 29 applicants to oversee Temecula’s planning, code enforcement and building and safety operations. Villa had worked as Lake Elsinore’s planning and code enforcement manager from 1991 until 2005. Prior to being hired by Temecula, Villa worked as Imperial County’s director of development services and parks and recreation. Jones was the 12th city employee to be hired after Temecula incorporated, and the city’s population surged beyond 101,000 during her tenure. Jones worked for Temecula for 24 years and served as city clerk since June 1998. Her retirement marked the exit of the last department head who dated back to Temecula’s seminal period as a city. The application deadlines have passed in the nationwide searches to replace Butler and Jones. Thirty-three people applied for Butler’s job and 25 candidates have met the minimum standards set for the city clerk’s position, officials said in a recent e-mail. Adams said the pair of decisions is expected in a few weeks. The importance of finding the “best fit” for the city can’t be overstated, Adams said. Many factors must be weighed in picking new executives who can tackle the challenges that come with the city’s slowing growth and stabilizing population, he said. “Those personnel decisions are among the most important we can make,” Adams said, noting that the recent flurry swept through Temecula faster than others have in the past. “From a city manager’s perspective, (hiring) is quite an opportunity that I’m allowed,” he said. It’s uncertain whether the trend will spill over into the ballot box in November, which is where Temecula residents will fill three vacant council seats. It may take several months for

The retirement of Susan Jones, who recently stepped down to move to Florida, marks the seventh department head or top leader to leave Temecula since late 2011.

those races to take shape as re-election bids or open-field campaigns. Candidates typically pick up their election materials in mid-July, file those documents in early August and qualify for the ballot a few days later. As nearly 45 candidates can attest, defeating Temecula council incumbents has proven to be an almost impossible task. In all, just 13 people have served on the Temecula council over the city’s nearly 25-year history. On the flip side, 44 other residents have lost one or more council races, according to city records. By the time of the next election cycle in November, the five current council members will together have served more than 65 years, according to city records. Only one incumbent – Karel Lindemans – has lost a re-election bid since Temecula became a city. Lindemans was elected to the first council when Temecula became a city. He failed to win re-election in November 1992, which is when Ron Roberts and Jeff Stone were picked by voters. Peg

Moore, another member of the original council, did not seek re-election because she planned to move out of state. Lindemans returned to the council in November 1994. He served for another five years before opting not to seek re-election and move to the Palm Springs area. Stone was later elected to the Riverside County Board of Supervisors, a post he still holds. Roberts continues to serve on the council. Mayor Maryann Edwards is the only current council member to shift from another elected panel. Edwards was an appointed member of Temecula’s Traffic / Public Safety Commission from 1998 until 2001, which is when she was elected to the Temecula Valley Unified School District governing board. She was appointed to the council in 2005, and has repeatedly won re-election. The seats held by Roberts, Edwards and Jeff Comerchero, who was elected to the council in 1997, will come up for grabs in November. To comment on this story online, visit

Anderson said that people like Skaggs and other parents involved with the club have been instrumental in planning events and making meetings happen, but the kids themselves have also been extremely dedicated. “They would give up their lunch break and come and meet during lunch and they would also talk about it after school because the four boys who started the club are also best friends,” she said. “So I

that inspired Dawson not to necessarily start a club, but rather just to learn how to perform CPR himself in the chance that he might be in a similar situation. One thing led to another and Dawnelle, who said she sensed Dawson’s enthusiasm, encouraged Dawson and his friends to start a club so that many students could learn a skill proven to be useful in emergency situations.

would definitely say several hours have been put in over the course of the past month.” The event may have taught students an important skill to have in their lives but it was also intended to be a fun experience, according to 14-year-old Dawson. He said the event attempted to reward students who successfully learned basic CPR skills by giving them “CP-R U Ready?” wristbands to mark their success in completing the basic exercise. Students who completed the CPR event could also kick back and relax with a cool treat from Kona Ice Temecula, which was giving out shaved ice to the students.

Great Oak High School junior Ramin Rahgozar tries out the CPR chest compression technique during lunch on Friday, Feb. 7, 2014.

The high school freshman said he was pleasantly surprised by the reaction he got from students who learned CPR. “I was actually very surprised,” he said. “There were lots of kids coming down even before we even asked them to come. There were tons and tons of kids.” Anderson said he believed a big part of the reason many students came to learn CPR compressions was just so they could get a Kona Ice, but that that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing because they would at least take away some skills that would help them if they found themselves in a situation where someone needed that kind of help.

“They could come over and do their CPR and then get their Kona Ice, which is what they wanted,” he said. “But then if they were ever in that situation they could say, ‘Oh wait, I remember. I learned CPR. I know how to do it a little bit.’” Dawnelle Anderson said the boys are excited about continuing the CPR club over the course of the next few years and that the next step they want to pursue is CPR certification so that they can become instructors who can in turn certify other students.

Camp Pendleton’s new Naval Hospital officially opens Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) the Honorable Jonathan Woodson, Commanding General I Marine Expeditionary Force Lt. Gen. John Toolan, Deputy Surgeon General of the Navy, Deputy Chief of the Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery Rear Adm. C. Forrest Faison III, Richard Heim, president and CEO western region, Clark Construction Group, CA, Commander, Navy Medicine West, Naval Medical Center San Diego Rear Adm. Bruce L. Gillingham and Commander, Courtesy photo Officials perform the official ribbon-cutting ceremony on Jan. 31 for the new Naval Hospital on Camp Pendleton.

CAMP PENDLETON – A ribbon-cutting ceremony marked the official opening of the newest Navy Medicine West facility, Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton, on Jan. 31. The 500,000 square-foot, four story building was delivered six months early and more than $100 million under budget. NHCP Commanding Officer Capt. Mark A. Kobelja welcomed everyone to the 1 p.m. ceremony and recognized all the personnel responsible for the new facility. “Everyone who made this project a reality was outstanding. The facility is going to be well used,” said Kobelja. “Since completing the move Dec. 14, we have delivered 170 babies, conducted 458 surgeries including 39 emergency cases, have seen 5,700 patients in the ER, processed over 100,000 lab tests,

conducted 7,000 imaging studies including 900 CT and 250 MRI exams, transfused 30 units of blood, casted 350 limbs, dispensed 75,000 prescriptions including 50,000 new prescriptions plus an additional 15,000 inpatient medication fills and completed nearly 30,000 outpatient appointments. The ICU has had more patients in the last seven weeks than in the previous seven months. The average daily census of our wards and the ER are up over 25 percent. County EMS is now bringing patients to us from outside the fence – at the patient’s request. The patients and their families love this new hospital and her crew and the proof is in the numbers.” The official ribbon-cutting party consisted of Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense Comptroller, the Honorable Mike McCord,

cludes high school and college fields. The synthetic turf will help to reduce maintenance and save water, according to Holston. It will also be playable year-round without having to be watered. “This project has some cost savings that you’ll recognize at the end of the day, but we won’t know until we finish it,” he said. Holston and his staff came to the council a year ago and the project was once approved by the council but they had a “technical error” and had to reject all bids. He said they’ve now worked through the process. Holston and his staff will return to the council in March with more information on this project.

valuable product.” “That’s a pretty tall order to fill,” said Mayor Pro-Tem Harry Ramos. Sprinturf was also the lowest responsible bidder in the amount of $959,000. Murrieta City Council approved construction to Sprinturf at their city meeting Tuesday, Feb. 4. There were nine bidders for the construction contract and they all had experience in placing turf in an NFL field. Apart from having experience of placing synthetic turf in an NFL field, some of the requirements that bidders needed to demonstrate were experience in various sizes of fields. This in-

Courtesy photo Gerry (left) and Rosie Wilson, acquired a winery in 1996. Their previous experience with wine making involved using dandelions and rhubarbs.

WILSON, from page A-1 married in August of 1953. Gerry was being deployed to Korea and like many military couples today, a pending deployment speeds up a romance. Gerry was deployed to Korea during 1953 and 1954 due to on-again, off-again armistice negotiations of the Korean War. The first year of their marriage the Wilsons fell even more in love through daily letters written back and forth. “Gerry was a great story teller. I felt like I was right there with him in his tent with the pot belly stove and fellow military friends,” said Rosie. “Oh, I lived for those letters,”

Naval Facilities Engineering Command Atlantic Rear Adm. Douglas G. Morton. McCord emphasized that this project was more than only the second largest project from the American Improvement Act as it means so much to care for the men and women who put their lives in harms way every day. Toolan acknowledged all those who made this hospital possible and in such a short period of time. “This facility now serves as a symbolic landmark to the entire

Southern California community. Reflecting the care and commitment our nation has for those who serve and their families,” said Toolan. “You all didn’t just build a building – you created a standard of excellence.” Situated on a 70-acre site near the main gate of Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, the new Naval Hospital will employ a staff of around 2,400 physicians, nurses, and support personnel who will serve around 157,000 military healthcare beneficiaries.

said Gerry. “Those letters were what kept me going.” After Gerry returned from Korea, the couple moved to Minnesota and both continued to work – Gerry in banking and Rosie for a power company before having children. The two were ahead of their times. Gerry was thrilled and proud his wife made more than he did and bragged to his friends. Rosie also supported her husband helping him rise through his own career. “Like Ronald Reagan said about his wife Nancy, I married up,” said Gerry. “I was so lucky to have found a woman not only smart but beautiful on the inside and out.” Gerry said he and his wife were friends and did not compete with each other. If they had disagreements, they put it on the table, “so not to turn a brushfire into a forest fire.” After being married eight years the Wilsons adopted a child and then Rosie gave birth to three more children. It was in Minnesota that the Wilsons started to dabble in wine making, using dandelions and rhubarbs. But they never thought of turning it into a business. In the 1970s, Gerry and Rosie picked up the family and moved west to South Pasadena. Gerry’s oldest son Bill remembered the dandelion and rhubarb wine making and when Gerry was looking to retire, Bill suggested they move to Temecula and open a winery. Like the young man who had no business being on a ski lift years ago, Gerry took the risk with no real background in vineyard man-

agement or winemaking and took a chance opening a winery with his wife in Temecula Valley. “It was a new lifestyle for us,” said Gerry. Rosie said the early days were rough but they always had each other and their family and that is all that mattered. Rosie and Gerry never planned nor dreamt of having a winery that would become as successful as Wilson Creek is today. The winery is famous for their Almond Champagne and has won many prestigious international awards. However, despite all their success in wine making, the couple is most proud of their family and marriage. “Life is about the precious moments,” said Gerry. “The evenings to ourselves [with] the fire going – you don’t have to go out every night to have a good time.” “Rosie is a very capable woman, and a hell of a lot of fun to be with,” said Gerry. “Marriage is not 50/50, it is 80/80,” said Rosie. “He spoils you and you spoil him.” Rosie describes her husband as a wonderful father, someone who is thoughtful, honest and loves people. “We wait on each other. Rosie anticipates my needs. I am not as mobile as I used to be so she puts the paper down for me, gives me a scotch at night,” said Gerry. “It really is the little things, like in the morning putting toothpaste on each other’s toothbrush, just to be kind.” To comment on this story online, visit

Real Estate

Five tips for anyone wanting to become a real estate investor for your fix and flip home for sale.

John Occhi, Mike Mason Special to the Valley News Flipping houses in the Temecula/ Murrieta Valley and across the Inland Empire has been a lucrative venture for investors for many years. Many think it is a quick way to a fast buck. Many have tried and many have failed. Flipping houses is serious business and should not be taken lightly by the novice real estate investor. Before you begin down this path, prepare yourself. Here are five quick tips to help you understand what you’re in for, before you actually start investing your money. 1. You need to know that it’s work. You need to work with a good local REALTOR® who understands the local market. A local REALTOR® can not only help locate profitable homes through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) but will be able to lead you to other lesser known resources as well. When it’s time to sell the home your REALTOR® will know the market and help you achieve the greatest price

2. If you are buying low, you’ll need to spend more. The whole concept of discounted homes for sale is that they need repairs and upgrades. There is no reason for someone to sell a turnkey, state-of-the-art home for a discounted price. It takes time and money to get a home ready to flip and generate the largest possible profit. Contractors are an important part of your team, so start lining them up now. Yes, you should be able to do some work yourself, but understand that time is money – how much time do you have to invest in the project? The quicker it sells, the quicker you get paid and the money you have tied up is free again. 3. The kitchen makes the sale. The one room that swings more sales is the kitchen. Here in the Temecula/Murrieta Valley, kitchens should have recessed lighting, solid surface countertops and high-end matching appliances if you want to capture the ‘wow’ factor. Upgraded cabinets, a full backsplash, under-the-counter lights and tile/ hardwood floors all do their part in closing a deal. 4. Garage doors are part of curb appeal. There’s nothing worse than selling an upgraded home, beauti-

fully landscaped with a nasty old wooden garage door (just as bad is a dented, metal roll-up). People do judge books by their covers and houses by their curb appeal. The garage door is the first thing anyone sees, so make sure it’s memorable. First impressions count. 5. In landscaping, less is more. When a potential buyer is considering purchasing a new Temecula/ Murrieta home, they want it to look nice. What they don’t want is a lot of high-maintenance landscape, no matter how stunning. Remember your audience, most home buyers in our Valley are working families who don’t have all week to tend to the grounds nor do they want to spend all weekend doing it either. Keep your landscape clean and simple and don’t forget the back and side yards, too. If you are considering getting into the real estate investment business, either as a part-time venture or your life’s work, know what you are getting yourself into. Follow these simple suggestions and you’ll be making your first trip to the bank from escrow in no time. Call us today and get the information you need to make the right decision.

Health Achieve a healthy glow without the harm of tanning beds on a daily basis. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends adopting a complete sun protection regimen that includes seeking shade, covering up with clothing (including a wide-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses) and wearing sunscreen daily with an SPF of 15 or higher, applying about one ounce (a shot glass full) to all exposed areas.

RIVERSIDE COUNTY – As the temperature drops and winter lingers, women are seeking ways to warm up their dull winter skin. Taking a note from Hollywood Alisters, many are abandoning the fake-baked looks achieved from UV tanning in favor of a more natural glow. This is an important and timely shift, as research shows that melanoma incidence among young women ages 18-39 has jumped an alarming 800 percent in the past 40 years (1). Additionally, there is evidence showing that just one indoor tanning session increases users’ chances of developing melanoma by 20 percent, and each additional session during the same year boosts the risk almost another two percent (2). This new trend of natural radiance means having youthful and refreshed skin; not wrinkles, age spots and a leathery appearance. “A glowing skin tone can be achieved through a healthy skincare and sun protection regimen,” said Skin Cancer Foundation spokesperson Amy Forman Taub, MD. To help brighten winter skin, Dr. Taub and The Skin Cancer Foundation offer these tips. Protect against sun damage Sun protection is a crucial tool in the battle against premature skin aging. More than 90 percent of the visible changes commonly attributed to skin aging are caused by the sun. Since UV damage is cumulative over a lifetime, it is something to be concerned about

Shimmer like a pro A proper skincare regimen is essential when working toward a healthy, glowing complexion. Follow this routine to help achieve glowing skin: 1. Start with a morning cleanse­. Glowing skin starts with a proper cleansing in the morning, and remember, it doesn’t have to lather or foam to work. Many cleansing cloths for instance don’t lather, yet take all the effort out of face washing. 2. Smooth on a serum. If using a serum, try one with Vitamin C, which has anti-aging benefits. 3. Apply moisturizer with sunscreen. Next, reach for a moisturizer with an SPF of 15 or higher. 4. Prime the skin­. A primer creates a smooth canvas for makeup. Go with your own glow For those who can’t resist the bronzed look but won’t sacrifice their health to achieve it, consider sunless (UV-free) tanners. They are available in many different formulations, including creams, lotions, gels, pump sprays, aerosols and wipes.

6th Annual Fundraising Event A Night to Help Save the Animals

Pets Should you buy pet insurance? Jason Alderman Special to the Valley News One topic I’ve learned to avoid with new acquaintances until I know them better (along with politics and religion) is where they stand on the treatment of pets. Some people, when their dog gets sick or badly injured, say, “It’s an animal – that’s just part of the circle of life.” Others consider Rover a close family member and would take out a second mortgage to save his life. Pet owners from both camps probably see the barrage of ads for pet insurance and wonder whether it’s worth the expense, which might be several thousand dollars over the life of your pet. I did some research and the best answer I can come up with is it depends. First, ask yourself: Do you regard pet insurance as a financial investment, where you expect to get back more in benefits than you paid out in premiums over the pet’s life? Or, is it more like auto or homeowner’s insurance, where you hope nothing ever goes seriously wrong, but you want coverage in case there’s a catastrophe? Either way, here are some basic facts about pet insurance that may help you decide whether it’s right for you. Pet insurance shares many features with human health insurance. Policies typically have annual deductibles, co-payments and exclusions, and some limit which veterinarians, clinics and hospitals you can use. But there are numerous differences as well. For example, pet insurers are allowed to refuse coverage for preexisting conditions and to set annual and lifetime payout limits. Among the many other restrictions you should watch for when comparing plans are: * Premiums vary greatly depending on where you live and may increase based on your pet’s age, breed, veterinary cost inflation and other factors. * Typically you must pay the vet or hospital bill out of pocket and get reimbursed later. * Many plans deny or restrict coverage for congenital or hereditary

conditions (like hip dysplasia in dogs or kidney failure in cats) and preventable conditions like periodontal disease. * Along with annual and lifetime maximums on benefits paid out, there may be a limit on how much it will pay for treatment of an individual illness or accident. * If your pet suffers a particular disorder one year, don’t be surprised if that condition is excluded at renewal – or if you’re required to pay an additional fee for future coverage. * Pets over certain age limits frequently are denied coverage. * Certain breeds are often excluded or only eligible for restricted coverage. * Some carriers let you augment your accident and illness policy with optional “wellness care” coverage for things like spaying and neutering, annual physicals, vaccines and routine tests. Make sure the additional premium is worth the extra cost. Perhaps the biggest challenge when choosing pet insurance is

trying to compare plans, apples to apples. There are about a dozen carriers in the U.S. Each offers a variety of plans with varying deductible, co-payment and maximum coverage amounts, as well as different covered benefits and exclusions. You can go directly to their websites for plan details and to request a quote, or use an independent comparison website to pull quotes from multiple carriers. I’d recommend creating a spreadsheet to compare benefits and costs side by side, just as you would when shopping for auto insurance. Bottom line, if you decide pet insurance isn’t right for you, at least be sure you’re setting money aside to cover expected – and unexpected expenses.

The caregivers’ journey Consider carefully before moving parents in with you Marsha Kay Seff Special to the Valley News When I was a caregiver to my parents, some people faulted me for placing my folks in a retirement community, rather than moving them in with me. But I never felt guilty about my choice. For our family, the arrangement was the best option. When my mom and dad first needed assistance, I hired caregivers to assist them at home in Miami Beach, even though I remained very involved. But the stress of longdistance care giving and the cost of flying back east for emergencies was steep. Even so, my husband and I realized we couldn’t accommodate my folks in our home. Eventually, with their agreement, I moved them to an assisted-care facility and later a skilled-nursing care near me in San Diego. Moving your parents in with you is a huge decision and I recommend that adult children and their parents think long and hard about

the consequences before making the leap. First off, no matter how unselfish and caring adult children believe they are being, many parents do not want to give up their independence and move into their child’s household. Surveys show that most want to remain in their own homes as long as possible. And many can do that with the help of a professional home care company and, sometimes, with private caregivers. Some older adults even prefer the relative independence of a retirement community. Of course, finances are a major issue. Both professional homecare and retirement communities are pricy. But moving parents into your home might not save as much money as you think. First, there’s the potential cost of remodeling your house to make it more comfortable and safer for aging parents, the cost of hiring assistance when you have to work and the cost of cutting back your hours at work or even giving up your job so you can remain home to care for them.

Some families are able to make physical and financial accommodations by pooling their money and buying a bigger house for the multiple generations. Another consideration is whether parents, adult children, spouses and young children are willing to accept the inevitable lifestyle changes. You need to consider whether you can handle the extra stress, whether your spouse will get along with your parents for an extended time and whether your son or daughter would be willing to give up a bedroom or be happy about moving if necessary. There’s also the question of whether your parents will feel comfortable with intimate help from a family member or whether parents will be able to live by the rules of your household, such as giving up smoking or drinking. If you work, you need to think about how your parents will fare at home. You might need to sign up for Meals-on-Wheels or hire home care to ensure their comfort and safety.

Temecula Valley Hospital promotes heart healthiness with awareness luncheon Feb. 20 TEMECULA – February is National Heart Month and Temecula Valley Hospital (TVH) is celebrating by offering a unique Women’s Heart Health Awareness Luncheon and plenty of opportunities to improve your exercise regime. Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States, claiming more lives than all forms of cancer combined. Scheduled for Feb. 20, the TVH Women’s Heart Health Luncheon will be held at the City of Temecula Conference Center and features a special discussion by physicians on heart disease and women and an inspiring story from a heart disease survivor to encourage and educate the audience about taking charge of their heart health. The event features Dr. Carla Soler, Dr. Andrew Ho, Nurse Practitioner Rebecca Rogers and heart disease survivor Denyse Wilson. The speakers will also participate in a panel to provide an opportunity for the audience to ask questions. In addition to dynamic speakers,

the event features health education and screening booths such as “Ready for Red-Know Your Numbers” checklist to aid women in assessing their heart healthiness, blood pressure checks, EKG and ECHO screenings, assorted point of care tests, EKG and ECHO screenings, nutritional education and heart healthy recipes, exercise and your numbers, and smoking cessation support. The cost of the luncheon and health fair is free. Reservations can be made at (855) 859-5209. This event will be an important forerunner to the Temecula Valley Heart Walk scheduled for May 3 at Lake Skinner. TVH would like to encourage all residents in the Valley to come out and join the walk. The Heart Walk celebrates those who have made lifestyle changes and encourages many more to take the pledge to live healthier lifestyles. The hospital cannot stress enough the need for exercise as a critical component in heart healthiness. A daily regime of walking and good

nutrition can forestall many potential heart problems. The walking does not stop there, Temecula Valley Hospital is also actively participating in the “Walk to the Moon with our Community” to challenge residents to come together and walk the 238,000 miles to the moon as a community. The four month campaign will land at the Lake Elsinore Storm Stadium with a ceremonial crossing of the finish line at home plate, health fair, and game on April 27. For more information on the Walk to the Moon campaign, visit The new Temecula Valley Hospital located at 31700 Temecula Parkway opened on Oct. 14, 2013 and brings advanced technology, innovative programs, patient-centered and family sensitive care to area residents. As the region’s newest acute care facility, the hospital features 140 private patient rooms, 24 hour a day emergency care, advanced cardiac and stroke care, orthopedics and general medical care and surgical specialties.

Even if they don’t need daytime care, they might get lonely, especially if they’re moving away from longtime friends. You might need to look into senior centers and adult daycare to enhance your parents’ social lives. Besides potential financial savings, there are benefits to combining households. One of them is that you might gain some peace of mind and your parents and children get the chance to interact and know each other better. Moving your parents in with you is a big step that requires a lot of soulsearching on everyone’s part. This might end up being a reasonable interim solution for you. But you need to plan for the future when they might need more care. And if you believe that moving your parents in with you won’t work for you and your family or your parents don’t want to do that anyway, do not feel guilty about

Moving your parents in with you is a big step that requires a lot of participation on everyone’s part.

55 local athletes sign National Letters of Intent Purdue, BYU and UCLA among colleges chosen

Paul Bandong Staff Writer National Signing Day, Feb. 5, is the first day of the official signing period for a number of college sports. Around the Valley, at least 55 student-athletes at eight schools signed their letters of intent on this day. All throughout the nation high schools are holding special signing ceremonies, television and radio stations are broadcasting special

programs, social media is blowing up and student-athletes are making dreams come true or breaking hearts as they choose the colleges and athletic programs to which they will bring their skills and talents. It’s a wild day with scouting services and the media tracking top recruits and feeding the frenzy of changed minds, surprise decisions and ratings of various colleges’ recruiting classes. Signing Day is the first day that a high school senior can sign a bind-

ing National Letter of Intent (NLI) with an NCAA school, committing in writing to attend that school in exchange for a commitment from the school to receive financial aid (scholarship). The initial signing date for many collegiate sports is the first Wednesday in February. “This day is as much a celebration for parents as it is for the studentathletes. This is a culmination of all the hard work and it’s now paying off,” said Sal Rodriguez, parent of Evan Rodriguez, a football player

at Heritage High School. Matt Palmer, whose son Matthew played cornerback at Heritage, had this to say about the recruiting process, “Stressful, taxing, fun, heart-breaking, a lot of different emotions. The kids get their sights set on specific schools; the coaches tell you what you want to hear a lot of times until it comes down to the nitty-gritty. The process is taxing… something we started freshman year. It’s a relief to be done with it and see him start this next chapter

of his life.” Evan and Matthew will both be attending Azusa Pacific University. “Azusa has been with him for over a year and continued to show him the love throughout the year,” said the elder Palmer. “They were really honest and I’m excited for him to have this opportunity to go to that school and be with this coaching staff.” Limahai Hifo, Sunbelt MVP for

Nighthawks win Jersey Mike’s boys basketball challenge Murrieta Valley receives $3,789, Vista Murrieta $1,950 from fundraiser

The final score of the Jersey Mike’s fundraiser game was Murrieta Valley 72 to Vista Murrieta 58, but both teams came out winners Thursday night, Feb. 6.

Charles McKee Sports Writer The final score of the Jersey Mike’s fundraiser game was Murrieta Valley 72 to Vista Murrieta 58, but both teams came out winners Thursday night, Feb. 6. Jersey Mike’s two locations in Murrieta had a competition to see which school could raise more money for their boy’s basketball teams. It turned out that Murrieta Valley, with a student body of 1,000 less than Vista Murrieta, pulled off the upset. The Nighthawks raised $3,290 during the fundraiser and the Broncos $1,950. Jersey Mike’s also gave away an additional $500 bonus check for the team that raised the most

money during the competition. The Nighthawks won and received the supplemental check from Jersey Mike’s owners Laurie and Tanya Ilic. A final check of $3,789 was awarded to them. The brainchild of Murrieta’s Jersey Mike’s owners Laurie and Tanya Ilic, the fundraiser lasted from Jan. 20 through Jan. 24. Both teams handed out coupons for $3 sub sandwiches at games, school events and to friends and family. Jersey Mike’s donated the entire $3 of the purchase directly to the schools. “It’s always exciting to do a competitive fundraiser,” said Laurie Ilic. “The best part is helping two schools raise money at the same time.”

Started in 1956, Jersey Mike’s has been giving back to the community since they first opened. Their motto is “Giving: making a difference in someone’s life.” The Ilic’s have embraced this philosophy and have been active in raising money for various schools. Their next fundraiser is scheduled for Elsinore’s track and field team in April. “I would like to thank the Ilic’s and Jersey Mike’s for all they have done,” said Murrieta boys head coach Steve Tarabilda. “It’s great to have people like them in our community.” To comment on this story online, visit

stock to use, their first cabernet vines were planted. That was in 2006; and they had their first harvest in 2008. CTV’s wines are made in a different location, except for the De Luz label, but in the beginning they made all the wine on site. Their very first wine press, not even five feet in diameter, is now enshrined in their front yard as a planter. “It would take us three days [to crush the grapes],” said Susan with a laugh. Now they have their grapes crushed in a Temecula plant. “Fourteen tons of grapes can be crushed in less than a minute and a half,” explained Mick. The vineyard is now surrounded by lovely gardens. “We wanted to create a homey atmosphere where people can come and feel they are in a park…find a spot to sit, drink a glass of wine and relax,” Mick related. Nine variations of wine are available and the website details them all. All bottles are available online and also at select stores and restaurants locally. CTV’s labels are stunning and would make a perfect addition to any wine cellar. But the labels are not only beautiful - there is a lot of thought that goes into the production. For instance, the Sir Charles Cabernet is named after their golden retriever who was born the first year they bottled it. Both Mick and Susan enjoy the members of CTV’s Wine Club. Members are dazzled by their latest release and their best wines. They sip and taste and enjoy the ambiance at the wine parties. The wine club spans age groups as well as levels of winetasting experience. “We look at our wine club as an extended family,” Mick noted, “the people we have met have been wonderful.” “This is our dream for retirement – to have something fun and to entertain,” Susan said.

The Movie Review: “I, Frankenstein” Robert T. Nickerson Special to the Valley News What is the recipe for a monster? How about a few body parts constructed into one? Then grab hold of an abnormal brain to bring out the darkness of mankind. And finally, a bolt of lighting that has enough electricity to awaken a vehicle. It’s alive, it’s alive! Victor Frankenstein created these famous words when his creation rose in a large and drafty laboratory. The story of Frankenstein remains on of my favorites, having read this in my twelfth grade English course. This was the kind of writing that I needed to persuade me that reading a book can give me thrills (especially in an age where movies and the internet have already desensitized me). Frankenstein is also a monster that has been featured in many adaptations for film. One of them happens to be the famous 1931

classic of the same name that featured Boris Karloff as the iconic creature. In black and white Karloff gave us something that was menacing and unholy, yet sensitive and scared. Nearly worthy of the same status is the 1957 Hammer remake, The Curse of Frankenstein, with Christopher Lee as the monster. Now, instead of a retelling, the monster is put in the middle of a spiritual war in I, Frankenstein. The movie’s opening has the most recognizable parts as it recounts the doctor’s famous resurrection of the creature, the death of his wife, and the demise in the Artic. The monster (played by Aaron Eckhart) does the honorable thing of burying his master when he’s attacked by demons. He fights them off well until he’s rescued by two people that reveal themselves to be human gargoyles whose mission is to rid the world of creatures from the fiery underworld. The Gargoyle

Cabaret at The Merc to present ‘The Music of Alan Menken’ on Feb. 23

Queen (played by Miranda Otto) dubs Frankenstein’s monster the name Adam and offers him a place to fight alongside them. Adam declines and leaves. Centuries pass and Adam watches the world age and modernize, while he remains the same, stitches and all. An attack at a nightclub sends Adam back to a big cathedral where the gargoyles give him the same offer. Meanwhile, a demon named Helek (played by Bill Nighy) is disguised as a billionaire businessman who is using his team of scientists to figure the formula to recreate the famous doctor’s resurrection of corpses. Before Adam can decline once more the Gargoyle Queen is kidnapped, forcing the monster to fight off more demons and to prevent Helek from cracking the code. Let me guess your reaction - “Is this for real?” Yes, I, Frankenstein is an honest story about a war between demons and gargoyles with a Frankenstein monster thrown in the middle. I’m not even sure how the team behind this was able to get this monster of an idea even green lit. Which is fine, but how is it? It’s bad. It’s not just bad, it’s spectacularly bad. This is the kind of movie that makes you question if the director knew what he was doing. The acting is either over-acted with Bill Nighy and the gargoyles, or under-acted with Aaron Eckhart

looking stiffer than the Boris Karloff monster from 1931. The story constantly weaves back and forth never answering if the novel is in place, what the rules of spiritual warfare are, nor why the demons can’t simply invade living human bodies like in The Exorcist (major plot hole). Even the design and effects aren’t impressive. The cathedral is beautiful, but never do you see anyone worship inside. The town has a nice European look, but it never establishes how people can live and work there. Even the fiery explosions look unbelievably fake and computer generated (the ice in Frozen looked more three

dimensional than this). I’ll give this half an abnormal brain out of five. I, Frankenstein is the kind of bad that only comes every so often. What I mean is that it’s so unbelievably produced that it’s actually funny. I found myself snickering through most of the movie. So in a way, I certainly had fun sitting through this. Like The Roomor Battlefield Earth, this will certainly find its own fans of people looking for interesting trash cinema. Robert T. Nickerson is a film critic. His work can be seen at

Over 500 fans attend Wine Town Rollers’ first home team season bout TEMECULA – The Wine Town Rollers (WTR), Temecula Valley’s first and only roller derby league, hosted their debut home team season bout with more than 500 fans in attendance this past Saturday, Feb. 1 at Epic Rollertainment. The bout pitted the spicy women of the Margarita Hot Sprints against the sassy ladies of the Winchester Rivals with the Margarita Hot Sprints skating away with the win and an official score of 218 to 172. Saturday, Feb. 1 was no ordinary Saturday for the Wine Town Rollers and will go down in league history. The day started off with the induction of 42 new skaters at 8 a.m. at Margarita Park, the largest group since the fledging league started practices in late 2012. In order to facilitate the influx of so many Raisinettes (what the

Jonathan Arana

league fondly calls their newbies), they implemented a buddy program that pairs a veteran league skater with a Raisinette. The Raisinette is encouraged to ask their “buddy” questions that can range from skate maintenance to how to get the dreaded tomahawk stop down. The buddy is asked to be available to their Raisinette throughout their 12-week program that also teaches them how to skate, stop, fall, jump, give and take a hit, and ultimately be safe and effective on eight wheels. After a monumental practice, many members of the league barely had enough time to go home and get ready for the night’s main event which included setting up, managing, and for some, in addition to all of the above, competing and officiating in the evening’s first home

team season bout as modern day roller derby leagues are managed and ran by the skaters themselves. First whistle was at 7 p.m. and the score was close for most of the bout. Besides epic displays of athleticism, sportsmanship and courage from skaters on both teams, the crowd was entertained with a half-time show by Marine Sandpiper, derby educated by announcer, the-illreverendMic, and had the opportunity to win some amazing raffle prizes. Next home team bout is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, March 1 and will feature the Hit Bosses vs. the Winchester Rivals.

Taken with toucans

Swainson’s Toucan – a.k.a the Chestnut Mandible Toucan.

Shane Gibson photos Emerald Forest Bird Gardens owner, Jerry Jennings, holds two of his personal pet birds named Tiki (left) and Picasso. Tiki is a Chestnut Eared Aracari and Picasso is a Keel-billed Toucan.

Sandra Shrader Special to the Valley News Most people like to think that they have some kind of master plan for their lives, but for Jerry Jennings fate came disguised as a pair of toucans in a San Fernando Valley pet store in 1976. A longtime bird lover who had raised finches, Jennings thought the male and female toucans, each adorned with stunningly oversized beaks and plumage of bright colors, would become gaga over each other. But to his surprise, the cage mates remained completely disinterested in each other and that was when he became aware that there was more than one kind of toucan species. “They were sold to me as a pair of the same species, but one of the birds was actually an Ariel toucan and the other was an emerald toucanet. That was an eye-opener for me about toucans,” he explained. Jennings, now a world-renowned expert and breeder of the crowdpleasing avians as well as being the owner of Emerald Forest Bird Gardens, located on 40 acres in the woodland hills above Fallbrook. “I started doing research and asking questions and that was when I discovered there were so many different varieties of toucans, so I bought another male and female to pair up with the first two, started building larger outdoor cages in my one-acre backyard in Woodland Hills and things took off from there.” Although it wasn’t exactly that quick or simple of a learning curve for the proper care and feeding of the birds, two years later Jennings achieved two world first breeding awards when the Ariel toucans became the first pair to breed in captivity, and days later, the emerald toucanets provided another first when they laid eggs. Encouraged by aviary officials from the San Diego Zoo and other zoos about the need to develop

breeding methods for toucans in captivity, Jennings’ expanding passion for the charming birds motivated him to start searching for a larger piece of property. In the mid-1980s, he began looking all over California for the right place to create an outdoor breeding site, and by 1990, he purchased the Fallbrook site and began constructing outdoor cages that simulated natural environments. “This property was just what I was looking for because it’s in a semitropical climate that can accommodate these birds who are native to climates in Central and South America,” said Jennings, a now-retired attorney who was also the founder of the American Federation of Aviculture and served as president of the organization for several years. “Not only that, I wanted [a place] that has plenty of room to grow, a stream running through it and existing buildings for a nursery and bird raising facilities.” Today, Emerald Forest Bird Gardens, which breeds and raises toucans for zoos and private breeders throughout the world as well as for individual pets, is the largest toucan breeding operation in the country. The highly-lauded facility has been home to twenty-five species and 350 individuals, the world’s largest collection of captive toucans in a single place. The large cages are measured in “bird flight” feet and are usually nine feet high and range in size from eight feet by twelve feet up to ten feet by thirty feet. This provides plenty of space for a pair of birds to become compatible. They may take some time to get to know each other, ignore each other, fight with each other or become enamored with each other. When toucans do become simpatico, the male and female will sit together and the male will share its food of fruit and nuts with the female “much like a man might ask his date if she wants to share a glass of wine,” said Jen-

nings with a smile. And toucans are monogamous, he added. The toucan family Ramphastidae includes several types of large “show stopper” toucan species which are recognizable by their black coats and colorful bananashaped beaks. The birds use their beaks, which vary in markings from species to species, to pluck fruit in the wild. Their beaks have also been studied by aerospace engineers for their unusually high impact strength, according to Jennings. Other species in the toucan family found at Emerald Forest Bird Gardens include the smaller toucanets and aracaris which are usually more exquisitely colored and have smaller beaks than the larger toucans. The bird gardens are not just limited to toucans, however. Parrots, cockatoos, macaws, tanagers and turacos are also bred at the facility. And guiding visitors into the somewhat hidden grounds are several dozen peacocks strutting their stuff while hawks soar across the treetops. With all those avian residents living in one location, it doesn’t exactly make for a soothing lullaby of bird land. It’s more like a peculiar cacophony of sounds like Chihuahua barks, guttural throat clearings, shrieks, card shufflings, whistles, twitters, and mournful love calls across the canyon. Still, for Jennings, whose world travels have given him the chance to pet penguins in the Antarctic, pursue parrots in Peru and create conservation habitats in Costa Rica, all those feathered-friend greetings at Emerald Forest Bird Gardens sound like home, sweet home.

Improve indoor lighting and mood RIVERSIDE COUNTY – Want to improve your mood, productivity and general well-being? Consider turning on a light. The psychological effects of lighting have long been a subject of study. It has been documented that the intensity and quality of light can impact the psychological and physiological well-being of a person, affecting daily mood. The Mayo Clinic says that a lack of adequate lighting can make people feel depressed. That’s because light de-

privation can affect the production of the hormone melatonin, leading to physiological imbalances. An abundance of light can get bodily systems back in check and also may be an alternative therapy for common emotional issues. Lighting is such an important factor in mood that even stores and businesses study the impact certain lighting can have on people and their impression of a space. In fact, lighting design is an art and a science. Lighting designers must

have an understanding of the visual quality users of a space need for their health, safety and enjoyment. The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America lists the basic body of knowledge on lighting in the IESNA Handbook. It includes summaries of recommended practices based on research and consensus of successful lighting for specific applications. But individuals don’t need an extensive knowledge of lighting principles to improve their own interior lighting situations. Instead, a cursory understanding of what works can do the trick. Here are some things to consider. * People are attracted to light. If lighting is necessary for safety, brighter illumination will guide the way. * Brightness focuses personal attention on a particular object or area. * To create a more pleasant atmosphere, use wall lighting instead of overhead lighting in a space. * In public spaces or areas where individuals need to be alert, overhead lighting is the best option. * Dim lighting is best for rooms in which relaxation is desired. That is why table lamps are often used with a shade to diffuse the light. * Homes typically need a combination of lighting sources. An overhead light paired with ambient light and task lighting can help most people get things done. * According to light bulb manufacturer Sylvania, think in terms of

layering light. Light sources should be placed at different heights throughout a room to supply adequate illumination as well as visual interest. * For those who want to boost mood, consider full-spectrum light bulbs that mimic the spectrum of outdoor light. * Another easy remedy (during the day) is to simply let more outdoor light in. Keep blinds open wide, especially those that face west and south. Bedrooms with windows facing the east may help people rise with the sun. Skylights can help light shine indoors when

the sun is directly overhead. There are also sun tubes that help direct sunlight into rooms under an attic where traditional skylights cannot be installed. Remember, bright light can energize a person, so it is important to wind down from a long day by dimming the lights and preparing for sleep in the evening. Individuals often take light for granted and only realize something is off kilter when their homes are not adequately lit. There are different ways to remedy inadequate lighting situations. Speaking with a lighting designer may help.
