The Great Bull Run, an event styled after Spain’s yearly “Running of the Bulls,” may have trouble coming to Southwest Riverside due to safety concerns and a lack of necessary documentation, according to county officials.

Hard News Trial set for Fallbrook woman accused of killing 86-year-old Menifee resident with SUV RIVERSIDE – A June 3 trial date was confirmed on Feb. 15 for a woman accused of killing an 86-year-old Menifee resident while racing through an intersection drunk at the wheel of her SUV. Melissa Danae Dean-Baumann, 39, of Fallbrook could face 20 years to life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder, DUI gross vehicular manslaughter, child endangerment, DUI with injuries and sentence-enhancing allegations of inflicting great bodily injury on a person over 70 years old. Dean-Baumann appeared with her attorney before Riverside County Superior Court Judge Helios Hernandez for a status conference at the Riverside Hall of Justice. After the prosecution and defense indicated they would
be prepared to move forward, Hernandez scheduled trial to begin the first week of June. However, an intervening hearing is set for March 24 to verify both sides are on track. Dean-Baumann remains free on a $500,000 bond. Dean-Baumann is accused of killing Phyllis Fleming and seriously injuring the woman’s husband, Donald Fleming, in a Dec. 13, 2012, crash at the intersection of McCall Boulevard and Encanto Drive in Menifee. According to sheriff’s investigators, the defendant was driving her Chevrolet SUV westbound on McCall at a high rate of speed about 12:30 p.m. and became distracted by her 3-year-old child in the rear seat.
Dean-Baumann failed to see the red light at McCall and continued into the intersection. About that time, Donald Fleming initiated a left-turn from eastbound McCall to head north on Encanto, investigators said. The victim was turning on a green arrow. The SUV collided with the passenger side of the Saturn, fatally injuring Phyllis Fleming, who was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the District Attorney’s Office. The woman’s husband was hospitalized with major injuries, from which he has mostly recovered, prosecutors said. Dean-Baumann was treated for moderate injuries. Her child, strapped in a safety seat, was not hurt.
Trial begins for ex-con accused of attacking police officers RIVERSIDE – Jury selection got underway on Feb. 13 for the trial of an ex-convict accused of trying to run over several Riverside police officers during a pursuit, prompting the lawmen to shoot him. James Chad Horton, 35, could face 25 years to life in prison if convicted in the March 2012 incident. Horton is charged with assault on a peace officer, reckless driving, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon. He also has a felony strike on his record. According to court papers, in the past decade Horton has been convicted separately of making criminal threats, auto theft and recklessly discharging a firearm. Riverside County Superior Court Judge Mac Fisher summoned prospective jurors to the Riverside Hall of Justice for screening as to
their qualifications and availability. Opening statements in the case are not expected until next week. Horton remains held in lieu of $210,000 bail at the Southwest Detention Center in Murrieta. According to Riverside police, officers attempted to stop Horton for a traffic violation in the predawn hours of March 23, 2012, but the defendant drove away in a 2004 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck. During the ensuing five-minute chase, Horton allegedly drove in excess of 80 mph on city streets, making U-turns and occasionally driving on the wrong side of the road – until he got boxed in on Donald Street, police said. The defendant allegedly rammed a patrol car with officers next to it several times while trying to escape, prompting four officers to open fire on the Tacoma, according
to investigators. Horton’s passenger, John Eddie Walton, jumped out of the pickup and was immediately arrested. According to police, the truck became disabled after Horton struck a power pole, and the defendant fled on foot. A 90-minute search ensued, during which a police K-9 officer located Horton in the backyard of a home in the 3700 block of Everest Avenue. He surrendered after a police dog bit him. The defendant was treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound at Riverside Community Hospital and later booked into jail. In August 2012, Walton pleaded guilty to being a convicted felon with a gun and committing a felony while on bail and was sentenced to four years, eight months in prison.

Ex-con steals Hemet police car, leads officers on 12-mile chase to Menifee HEMET – An ex-con accused of stealing a Hemet police car and leading officers on a 12-mile chase to another city, where he crashed the cruiser, was charged on Feb. 14 with auto theft and other felonies. David Gary Hayes, 28, was arrested Tuesday morning, Feb. 11 after a pursuit that began in Hemet and ended in Menifee. Along with the theft count, Hayes is charged with burglary and resisting arrest. He is being held in lieu of $105,000 bail at the Southwest Detention Center in Murrieta and is slated to make his initial court appearance this afternoon. Around 10 a.m. Tuesday, officers were called to a store in the 1100 block of Sanderson Avenue to investigate a theft. The suspect had dropped his ID card while fleeing the location and officers were provided a full description of the man before they arrived, according to Hemet police. A patrolman spotted the suspect in the 2300 block of Stetson Avenue and attempted to arrest him, but the defendant ran away, police said. Another patrolman rolled up from the opposite direction, and both officers gave chase, leaving their vehicles unattended. “The officers lost sight of the suspect and began to coordinate a perimeter with incoming police
Grandmother attacked by pit bull, left with major injuries PERRIS – A 68-year-old grandmother in Perris suffered bites to her face and arms when her sonin-law’s pit bull attacked her as she exercised, a county spokesman said on Feb. 14.

units,” according to a police department statement. “As additional units were responding, dispatch received a call from a citizen who saw the suspect get into one of the officers’ vehicles and drive away east on Stetson.” The stolen cruiser’s GPS tracking device was activated, and surrounding law enforcement agencies were immediately alerted. Hayes went south on State Street, then west on Domenigoni Parkway, eventually turning north onto Interstate 215, according to police. A Riverside County sheriff’s helicopter crew followed the stolen police car once it reached the freeway, where California Highway Patrol officers initiated a pursuit. According to CHP Officer Nathan Baer, Hayes exited at McCall Boulevard in Menifee and turned west. He apparently lost control near the intersection of McCall and Bradley Road, running the patrol car into an object, causing the cruiser to stall. Hayes fled on foot but was located by CHP officers a short distance away and arrested without further incident, authorities said. According to court records, Hayes has a 2003 conviction for robbery and a 2006 conviction for illegally modifying a firearm.

Paramedics treated the woman and took her to Riverside County Regional Medical Center in Moreno Valley, Riverside County Animal Control Services spokesman John Welsh said. A medical condition was not disclosed but Welsh described the victim’s injuries as major. The night’s incident marked the second time a dog attack was reported in less than a week, Welsh said. The woman was not identified. The dog’s owner, Edward Chavez, told an animal control officer he heard his son yell for help when the male pit bull jumped on top of his grandmother and attack her in the family back yard, Welsh said. It was not certain how the animal got loose since it was chained up. Chavez was cited for having the dog tethered and the animal was released to animal control officers to have it euthanized, Welsh said. On Tuesday, Feb. 11, a 53-yearold Lake Elsinore man was attacked by his dog, his roommate’s dog and possibly a third dog. Those dogs like the pit bull involved in Friday night’s incident were not sterilized, Welsh said.

Center they had no right to hold the event because application for a permit was not filed with the county, according to the release. Smith could not be reached for comment for additional details on how the event might be dangerous or haphazard Friday. However, he did confirm Thursday, Feb. 13 that paperwork had still not been filed. Rob Dickens, chief operating officer and co-owner of The Great Bull Run, said he doesn’t see why anyone would think the event was too dangerous to hold because there were no serious injuries in other cities to hold the event. “Running with the bulls is not
Yates saw the two person injury over three event track record as more of a mark against the event than something that went toward its benefit. “At some of these events there were some injuries and we just didn’t feel it fit for our community,” he said. “You know, and that’s all I can tell you, we look at the pros and cons and this didn’t work for us.” Neither Dickens nor representatives from Temecula Downs could be reached after Riverside County announced their opposition to the event, so it’s not clear whether the event will still be taking place at this point in time.

as dangerous as it may seem from the videos you see on YouTube,” Dickens said. “Because all you see on YouTube is just the highlights where people get hit; you don’t see that 99 percent of people are out there running and they’ll never get punched or close to a bull.” “In Pamplona, they’ve only had 15 deaths in 103 years,” he said. “So let’s think about that for a minute: 15 deaths in 103 years – that’s a much lower death rate than you have even in professional football, so I would say, obviously, that since we’ve had three events so far, nobody has died and two people had injuries.” But the fact that two people had injuries wasn’t reassuring to Lake Elsinore City Manager Grant Yates.

MWD approves design of two Lake Mathews rehabilitation projects Joe Naiman Valley News Correspondent
into Lake Mathews, which is the western end of the aqueduct. Untreated water stored in Lake Mathews is withdrawn through the lake’s forebay and hydroelectric plant and then conveyed through the upper feeder to MWD’s Weymouth Treatment Plant in Laverne and through the lower feeder to MWD’s Diemer Treatment Plant in Yorba Linda. The original Lake Mathews facilities included the main dam embankment, the main outlet tower, and the forebay with its own outlet tower. In 1961 the main dam embankment was raised and two dikes were constructed to increase the lake volume to its current storage capacity of 182,000 acre-feet. The hydroelectric plant adjacent to the facility was constructed in 1980 and can generate up to 4.9 megawatts of electricity each year, which equates to annual revenue
The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California board authorized the design of two rehabilitation projects at Lake Mathews. The MWD board action February 11 authorized the preliminary design to perform repairs and replace the Howell-Bunger valves at the lake’s forebay facility and authorized the final design to repair the structure at the hydroelectric plant. The action also appropriated $1.94 million for the two design projects and adopted findings that the project is categorically exempt from California Environmental Quality Act review. MWD constructed the Colorado River Aqueduct in the 1930s which allows water to be transported from the Colorado River

of up to $1.3 million. The forebay and the outlet tower have been in continuous use for 75 years. The forebay itself is a reinforced concrete reservoir with a storage capacity of 31 acre-feet. The outlet tower is a 60 foot tall concrete structure with steel walkways and a steel control building at the top of the tower. The discharge facility has ten Howell-Bunger valves, each 32 inches in diameter, which control flow from the lake into the forebay to dissipate the excess energy. The water exits the forebay through the outlet tower and enters the upper and lower feeders The water exiting the discharge values into the forebay creates moist conditions above the forebay water surface and thus produces a corrosive environment. Over the years damage has occurred to the concrete, the reinforcing steel, the steel walkways, the control room, and the lining of the forebay. Although the structural integrity of the facilities is currently still sound, the rate and extent of concrete deterioration has increased during the past decade and repairs are needed to maintain reliable deliveries into the central pool. The ten Howell-Bunger valves have also deteriorated gradually due to continuous use. A 2013 assessment concluded that a planned replacement program would be more cost-effective and less disruptive to water deliveries than replacing or refurbishing the valves as they fail. The forebay outlet tower also has five butterfly valves, each 54 inches in diameter, and four large slide gates which have been recommended for refurbishment or replacement. Due to the long lead time to manufacture the Howell-Bunger valves, MWD staff recommended procurement prior to the actual rehabilitation so that the prepurchased valves could be provided to the repair contractor for installation during that future contract. The planned scope of the repairs includes removing cracked, spalled, and damaged concrete
down to sound concrete, replacing severely corroded reinforcing steel while repairing less corroded reinforcing steel through sandblasting and applying a corrosion inhibitor, installing a cathodic protection system to inhibit additional corrosion, replacing damaged concrete with new concrete, replacing the outlet tower’s steel walkways, sandblasting and coating the steel control room, replacing the Howell-Bunger valves while installing valve discharge deflectors to reduce the fog-like conditions, and refurbishing or replacing the butterfly valves and slide gates. The estimated cost of the entire project, including the design funds requested and past expenditures, is between $5.5 and $7.5 million. The preliminary design phase activities include conducting a three-dimensional survey of the discharge facility, forebay lining, and tower to create record drawings, mapping the extent of surface-damaged concrete, shutting down the facility for field inspection to assess existing conditions of the piping, Howell-Bunger valves, butterfly valves, slide gates, and other ancillary equipment, determining the strength of the existing concrete through concrete coring and laboratory testing, testing for hazardous material, preparing conceptional layout drawings and environmental documentation, developing the final design criteria, developing valve procurement specifications and the receipt of bids for the new Howell-Bunger valves, and developing a more refined construction cost estimate. The $1.75 million authorized for preliminary design covers $895,000 for the design work itself, $270,000 for a shutdown of the facility, field investigations, and a three-dimensional survey, $180,000 for preparation of design documents and receipt of bids for the procurement of the new valves, $142,000 for environmental documentation and project management, $100,000 for mate-
rial testing services to conduct concrete coring, laboratory testing, and analyses, and $163,000 for contingency. MWD staff will perform the preliminary design activities while HDR Engineering will perform the material testing. MWD staff expects to return to the board in mid-2015 to request the award of the valve procurement contracts and to authorize the final design. The turbine at the Lake Mathews hydroelectric plant uses cooling water, and chlorine has been added to that water to prevent algae growth. That chlorine, however, has damaged portions of the building over the years. In an effort to reduce further damage, the chlorine injection system was removed in 2008 and a cooling water system using potable water now reduces the turbine temperature. The scope of the hydroelectric plant repairs includes removing the damage concrete down to sound concrete, replacing reinforcing steel which has lost at least 20 percent of its cross-sectional area, repairing less-corroded reinforcing steel by sandblasting and applying a corrosion inhibitor, installing a cathodic protection system to inhibit additional corrosion of the steel reinforcement, and replacing damaged concrete with new concrete. The planned final design phase activities include conducting field investigations and material testing of the existing structure, preparing drawings and specifications, receiving competitive bids, and developing a construction cost estimate. The total project cost, including the design funds requested and past expenditures, is estimated at $1.15 to $1.5 million. The $190,000 appropriated February 11 covers $124,000 for final design, $44,000 for bidding and project management, and $22,000 for contingency. MWD staff will perform all final design activities.

She continued to refine her piano skills for many years, including most recently by taking classes in Menifee. “Music is my forte,” said Schmoll. “I’ve been playing the piano and organ off and on for many years.” At 16, she performed in her first recital in front of a crowd of 200. That is also the age at which she began one of her many careers: music educator. She has had over 200 private students and still teaches piano, organ and accordion. “I like teaching music, its fun” says Schmoll. “My students are like my family.” Schmoll shares her musical talents throughout the community by working as a performer and composer. She entertains several times a year at many local hospitals, convalescent centers and retirement centers. Last month, she performed piano selections during Arts Council Menifee’s Gallery Reception. She has also performed at several churches in the area. At Trinity Lutheran Church in Hemet, she de-
ARRESTED from page A-1 across the undisclosed quantity of methamphetamine and the firework, according to Sgt. David Cardoza. The firework, a D.O.T. class “B” mortar type firework, was taken by the Sheriff’s Hazardous Device Team, Cardoza said. Fireworks that receive a class “B” distinction are considered professional grade. The State of

buted her original hymn titled “Now the Lord Said (My Will Be Done) as part of a church service in 2009. In an effort to be a well-rounded artist, Schmoll is now a visual and literary artist as well. Her beginning with oil and pastel painting occurred four years ago following the loss of her husband. Her paintings emit the same level of passion that she has for her other artistic endeavors, the only difference being in the senses involved. Schmoll’s lively, colorful and impressionistic style of artwork is the main reason why she was nominated in 2011 for the prestigious National Artwork Award by the group American Mensa for a piece titled “Glow.” Schmoll has also been writing for
10 years and has published articles in several online magazines. After taking one semester of creative writing at a community college, she won a National Poetry Award from American Mensa in 2008 for her poem titled “And Now” and became a contributing writer and resident poet for Inland Empire Mensa. She is also the author of four books: “A Crime Against One Person: HMO Nightmare” (2010), “Serenade: Word Songs” (2011), “Rain and Rainbows: Short Story Collection” (2011), and “Holly, The Christmas Tree Fairy” (2012). She is currently composing a new book containing a collection of “Music Songs” for piano and vocal, which will be published sometime
California, which allows “safe and sane” fireworks to only be sold a few days each year, has strict laws and penalties for possessing and transporting professional grade equipment without a proper pyrotechnics license. Fleming was arrested for violation of parole and pending misdemeanor charges for possession of the firework while Holguin was arrested for possession of a
controlled substance. Both individuals were transported to Southwest Detention Center in Murrieta.

this year. Schmoll says her success at juggling all of her professional and artistic commitments is due to her dedication to continue learning and growing. “Anyone who has retired should do volunteer work to help themselves and others,” she says. “Everyone should keep learning and trying new things.” For more information on Edie Schmoll, other Arts Council Menifee Artists of the Month and vari-

His duties in Navy public relations included work as a press secretary to six returning prisoners of war. That Operation Homecoming assignment thrust Wright into TV and celebrity circles that few service members ever experience. Wright’s military service also included a stint as a recruiter who provided stunt-laced flights to prospective pilots. “What a job. It was fabulous,” Wright said of his military experience. “I packed a lot into those eight years.” After the military, Wright helped sail a 36-foot boat from Maryland to the Virgin Islands. A bicycle trip took him from Del Mar to Delaware. He built upon his previous college course work and earned a master’s degree in marriage, family and child counseling. He became a Christian and met his soon-to-be wife at a Christian learning center. Along the way, Wright and his wife raised five children. Wright’s initial professional forays into the counseling field – which he said “really honed my skills” – were at family life and adoption centers in Hemet and Oceanside. He currently sees about 50 clients a week in his private practice. “Counseling is an art form,” Wright said. “It isn’t easy. You have to know how and when to talk and to listen. It’s a challenge.” Wright estimates that about 15 percent of his clients are military veterans or active duty personnel or their spouses or families. He said
WRIGHT from page A-1 earlier when, as a child, he took it upon himself to help his parents cope with some of the emotional challenges they faced. Wright said he did not know his mother was ill until he returned home from school one day to hear a Catholic priest explain that she had died of alcoholism. Wright was 12 years old at the time. His mother was 44. “Growing up hard was commonplace then,” Wright recalled. The Vietnam War interjected another harsh reality when Wright came of age. He was drafted, but did not resist service because his family had deep ties to the military and a relative was part of the first wave of Americans to storm Normandy’s beaches during World War II. “I guess you could say that (military service) was in my DNA,” he said. The draft launched Wright into flight school and into Vietnam as a helicopter pilot. There he was assigned to high-risk rescues of American pilots who were shot down over land or water. He was a target of gunfire while in the air and mortar fire while on the ground. His squadron was involved in about 200 combat missions and it was credited with rescuing more than 150 downed pilots. Wright was decorated with medals for his valor and his service. His next key assignment was less risky, but equally mesmerizing.
his combat experience gives many of his military clients an assurance that he truly grasps the horrors of war and the tensions of always living on the edge. “The guys are really encouraged when they know I’m a vet,” he said. “In (counseling) they will talk to me. I’ve had guys unload some heavy stuff in here.” While those clients typically struggle with the same emotional difficulties as their civilian counterparts, infidelity, anger management, traumatic shock, suicide and pre- and post deployment pressures often run rampant. “My heart goes out to them,” he said. About 50 percent of Wright’s clients seek him out because of his Christian faith and counseling approach, he said. His resume notes that training in Biblical counseling and self-confrontation round out his educational background. “My door is open to anybody,” he said. “I am an optimist and I see in people an opportunity to change. I like to get them out of the victim mentality and move them into how we can change.” Robert Wright can be reached by telephone at (951) 304-0882.

Over 130 individuals attended the dance hosted by the City of Murrieta and the Murrieta Rotary Club on Feb. 14, 2014. Courtesy photo
DANCE from page A-1 wasn’t unusual to see ties and jackets being straightened among other last minute fix-ups before the dance participants entered the building. As each of the more than 130 special needs people entered the community center, they were ushered onto the red carpet where roughly two dozen of the Rotarians and volunteer high school students clapped for them and celebrated their arrival on a night that was truly theirs. The event was organized by Murrieta’s Rotary Club and chapters of Murrieta Valley Unified School District’s Interact Club, and was aimed at providing a space for special needs individuals to get out and have some fun with one another on a dance floor. This is just one of many years the event has taken place at the community center and it’s an event that Rotary Club President Patsy Orr said she is very proud of. “My favorite part is just watching them (the special needs individuals) have fun once the dance gets started,” said Orr. “And I just love coming to this every year.” The club president, who started her journey as a Rotarian more than 10 years ago, said that being part of the organization has been an allencompassing experience because of the many community service events it takes on throughout the course of the year. She said she sees the positive impact the club has on the surrounding community whenever she has conversation with the people it has served. She said the families and caregivers of the special needs individuals are a prime example of that idea. “The parents love it, the special needs adults love it, and even the caretakers (love it)” she said. “One year we almost didn’t do it because we were having problems and the person who was supposed to chair it couldn’t do it,” she said. “And two weeks before, Care Rite, which is the organization that assists special needs adults in this area, called and said ‘when is the dance going to be because all of the guys are wanting to know when the dance is.’” Care Rite is vocational service for special needs individuals.

ever, upon scheduling interviews several applicants withdrew their names from consideration which brought the applicants to nine, according to staff records. On Tuesday, four were chosen by council members. The new Public Safety Commission includes Myles Ross, full term; Valerie Sund, full term; Stephen Gregory, full term; and Christine Hyland, short term. “I’m just glad to see all these people applying. It means that we’re getting more people into our city and that are concerned about it,” said Councilman Daryl Hickman. Both Mayor Pro Tem Steve Manos and Councilman Brian Tisdale served on the sub-committee council to help choose the candidates. Manos said it was a long process in choosing the candidates. “There was a very great deal of great candidates that came out. It was difficult to choose between

Orr said members of the rotary club then pulled together and found a way to facilitate the event in spite of the short notice and the obvious roadblocks it created to give members of the community what they were yearning for. “So we put it together real fast and we had it,” she said. “And if we didn’t have it I think there would be a lot of disappointed attendees because many of these special needs adults I have seen every year and they have a grand time.” However, the adults of the rotary club weren’t the only individuals who helped to make the evening’s event happen. Many high school students from Interact Clubs from the three Murrieta-area high schools volunteered throughout the course of the evening, dishing out food and pieces of cake to the many hungry dance attendees among other tasks. Jim Yanoschik, who chaired the event, said he has so many students from Interact (the high school leg of Rotary) wanting to volunteer than he actually has to limit the number of volunteers he can bring in just about every year. “It’s so popular, because we have three high schools, that we have two shifts and we’re really overmanned,” he said. “But I want them to help and I want to try to get as many as we can.” Jim Yanoschik said that it’s more of a good thing than a bad thing to have too many kids wanting to volunteer because it shows they’re enthusiastic about community service. He added that many of the students stay past their assigned shift to remain a part of the experience. One of the student volunteers, 14-year-old Cassidy Aranda, said she found her work as a volunteer at the night’s event to be invaluable because of the visible difference she was making. “I saw this one person and he came through the door,” she said. “Oh my gosh, you should have seen his face. He was literally like so grateful for the experience he had, so grateful for the people that were there. “He was like, ‘gosh, thank you guys,’” She said. “And I literally almost started crying, that made me so happy.” To comment on this story online, visit www.myvalleynews.com. some of the candidates,” he also said. Tisdale said they think they put together a good mix of people. They also chose a group of people that they believe will “represent the city council and the city well.” “We picked people that people will actually come to and talk to,” he said. “And that’s really what we want. We want the community to really reach out to people.” The candidates chosen have experience in volunteering and are used to dealing with people in the public. The new Public Safety Commission had the chance to introduce themselves to the council. “Safety is one of my very, very [many] things I wanted to make sure gets done,” said Hyland, also a resident of 26 years. “I think we got the right four and look forward to their service to the city,” Manos said.

Who needs a home inspection - the buyer or seller?
John Occhi, Mike Mason Special to the Valley News Everyone should know that when buying a home it is prudent to have an independent third party inspect the major systems of the home so that you’ll know what condition they are in, avoiding most expensive surprises. As a seller of a Temecula/Murrieta Valley homes, MASON Real Estate recommends having a home inspection done prior to the marketing of your home. Then upon review, take care of what needs to be done prior to placing it for sale. By commissioning a pre-inspection and correcting any deficiencies, you’ll be able to market the home as truly ‘turn-key’ enabling you to ask for the highest and best price the market will bear. The primary areas of interest focus around these 10 major systems that all homes have in common: Appliances: Every appliance should be run for a full cycle and verified that they are all working correctly and not leaking or giving off any unpleasant odors. The best appliances are the ones that match one another and are Energy Star certified. Remember, kitchens sell houses and upgraded appliances sell kitchens. HVAC: The heating, ventilation and air conditioning system and the hot water heater should all operate without emitting any loud noises or odors. All plumbing should be corrosion free, filters should all be clean and new and the system should show signs of regular maintenance. Electrical system: All outlets
and switches should be grounded and working properly; GFCI outlets should be installed in wet areas; i.e. kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, exterior walls. Does the panel and breakers appear modern and working properly? Do they have sufficient amps to run a modern household? Plumbing: Inspect for leaks, rust, corrosion or other damage to the pipes and connections. Do all of the drains function properly? Is the water pressure and temperature where it should be? If there is a septic system, you’ll want a thorough
inspection that there are no cracks and that it’s working properly. Attic and roof: Are there any missing shingles? Are they deteriorating? What condition are the gutters in? Does the chimney appear to be structurally sound without any cracks? Look inside the attic for the insulation. Is it even throughout the attic? Is there a radiant barrier? Exterior surfaces: Here in the Temecula/Murrieta Valley many of our homes for sale have hairline cracks in the exterior stucco – this is normal with the settling that takes place. Check to make certain
that the exterior surfaces are all properly painted and caulked and don’t have other damage. Eaves and soffits should be inspected for water damage and the presence of termites (by a certified termite inspector, of course). Check to make sure that the ground cover is not making contact with exterior walls. Sprinklers should all be working properly and not spraying on exterior walls or fences. Structure: Visually check the structure for bows in the ceiling. Do all of the windows and doors close properly? Is the home properly bolted to the foundation? Land: Does the land slope away from the house? Try rolling a water bottle and see how it goes. Check out the driveway, walk ways, patio and any other paved surfaces for cracks or upheavals could be a sign of a natural force that may have also caused damage to your foundation. Detached buildings: Detached garages, sheds and other out-buildings should be thoroughly inspected to ensure they can withstand the elements. The roof, foundation and the sealing elements are all critical to these structures as is the termite inspection. Basements: Not many homes in the Temecula-Murrieta Valley have a basement or cellar. Of course, exceptions can be found and when they are, they should be thoroughly inspected for any moisture or cracking. Make sure to seek out any potential mildew or mold. This list is by no means to be
considered all-inclusive or as a substitute for hiring the right home inspection. It certainly will not replace an appraisal or other mandated inspection. This is to help you identify any potential issues that will undoubtedly be uncovered in the sale process. As a seller, you’ll want to know what they are in advance so you can either repair them or account for them in your asking price. As a home buyer, you’ll want to know as much about your possible new home as you can before you remove your contingencies. When your inspectors show up, plan on being there. Allow them to focus on their task at hand, making note of any questions you have. At the end of the inspection, the inspector should have no problem reviewing all of their findings with you on the spot as well as issuing a comprehensive report complete with photos of all areas in need of attention. Call us today and get the information you need to make the right decision. The info is free, call now!

A few cautions when selling a timeshare: * Watch out for scams. * If you didn’t pay cash, you’ll probably have to pay off your loan before being able to sell. * Beware of offers to accept your timeshare as a tax deduction for a fee – often thousands of dollars. The IRS only allows you to deduct “fair market value,” which is probably significantly less than you paid for it.
X TA E TL BT ET DE
* Evaluate the resort’s location and quality by visiting and talking to current owners about their experience. * Check for complaints about the seller, developer and management company with the state Attorney General’s Office (www.naag.org) and the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org). * Don’t act on impulse or be swayed by high-pressure sales tactics. * Like new cars, new timeshares quickly depreciate, so consider buying one used.
Full disclosure: I’ve always been somewhat skeptical of timeshares. I understand the appeal of having a guaranteed vacation home in an area you love and being able to swap your unit for a place halfway around the world. But I worry that many buyers don’t consider all associated costs and mistakenly think timeshares are sound financial investments that will appreciate in value. In fact, sellers rarely make a profit – some only get pennies on the dollar. Plus, the waters are filled with sharks eager to rip off people desperately trying to unload unwanted timeshares. Before you buy a timeshare, understand how they work, challenges you may face when trying to resell and scams to avoid. Timeshares are usually either: 1. “Deeded,” where you own a share of the property, usually for a particular unit for a specified time period – typically one or two weeks a year. Depending on your contract, you either own it for life, for a specified number of years, or until you sell it. 2. “Right-to-use,” where a developer owns the resort and each unit is divided into “intervals” – either by the week or for a certain number of points. You purchase the right to use an interval for X number of years but don’t own any real property. Many allow you to use your points to stay at an affiliated resort (swapping). The price for buying a new timeshare can vary widely, depending on the area and amenities offered. A typical one-week share might cost $10,000 to $25,000 – or many times that for a posh unit in Aspen or Kauai. Plus, you’ll be responsible for various other expenses: * Annual fees for maintenance, utilities and property taxes. * Assessments for major repairs or improvements. * Fees to swap your share for someone else’s or sell it. * Don’t forget travel costs to and from the property each year. The Federal Trade Commission (www.consumer.ftc.gov) offers many helpful tips, including: * Compare the costs of buying and maintaining a timeshare with renting a similar property. Perhaps rent a unit first to make sure you like the complex.

TEMECULA – Country singer Justin Moore will headline The Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival on Friday, May 30 at Lake Skinner. Moore, 29, whose third album “Off the Beaten Path” was released in September 2013 and peaked at #1, has a string of hits including the sentimental favorite “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away.” Named Billboard’s “Top Country Artist of 2009,” the Arkansas native’s top 10 hits include “Small Town USA,” “Backwoods,” “Point At You,” “Till My Last Day” and “Bait A Hook.” Moore’s self-titled 2009 debut album was recognized by the New York Times as one of the best albums for that year. His music has been featured on the ABC drama “Nashville,” “Hannity & Colmes” and “NFL Rewind. Moore is just the first of many musical acts who will perform during the 2014 Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival which is on May 30, May 31, and June 1 at Lake Skinner. Friday also features the very popular evening “Balloon Glow” where hot air balloons are inflated and remain tethered to the ground. As the evening sky drops a velvet veil of stars in the twilight, the hot air balloons begin their “light
dance.” By simultaneously igniting their burners the pilots create a colorful illumination of the balloon canopies. Towering above the crowd, and flickering to the beat of popular music, the balloons appear to dance. Saturday will feature top rock, alternative rock and pop stars on the main stage while regional favorites and upcoming stars perform on the Wine Stage. The evening balloon glow is repeated in the Wine Gardens after dusk. The festival features dawn hot air balloon launches, free morning tethered rides (weather permitting), premium wine tasting, microwbrew tasting, food and wine pairing, chef demonstrations and beer and food pairing, as well as a full international food court, arts and crafts, exhibits, and a kids faire.

Coyle retires as top winning coach in Chaparral history JP Raineri Multimedia Editor The sports programs at local high schools in Southwest Riverside are filled with talent. Every year each school has plenty of graduates that will go on to play at the collegiate level and beyond, but when you throw in athletes like Olympic cyclist Sarah Hammer (2008, 2012), and professional baseball players Rob Brantley, Miami Marlins catcher (2013); and Allen Craig, St Louis Cardinals first baseman/ World Series Champion (2010), it is no secret that Temecula’s Chaparral High School is a just little easier to find on the map these days. According to Marvin Morton, athletic director at Chaparral, “The key factors that help keep our young student athletes focused comes in the form of a highly dedicated staff and some very driven coaches.” One coach has not only raised the bar at Chaparral, he has set the bar so high that it could take quite some time for one like him to come back around again. Ed Coyle, the boys head basketball coach at Chaparral now holds the record as the most winning coach in the school’s history. Coyle’s Pumas have won two league titles and have had two quarterfinal playoff runs since he took the whistle in 1997, with his best coached seasons being in 19992000 (26-4), 08-09 (23-5), and 09-10 (24-3 and league champion). His current team went 11-16 overall and 1-9 in league this year, and though it seemed like they were out of all contention for a playoff spot after suffering a one point loss to Vista Murrieta last week in their final road game and a five point loss to Murrieta Valley in what was Ed’s final home game, they caught a break with an at large birth and will face #1 seed El Toro in the first round of the southern section playoffs this week. Coyle, who will be leaving the Puma’s program after this year, retired from teaching at the school last year. He began his coaching career as an assistant at Huntington

Beach Edison, but his first varsity head coaching job was at Montebello Cantwell Sacred Heart in the early 80s. From Cantwell, Coyle spent one season as an assistant during a state title run at El Camino College and returned to high school at West Covina Edgewood which is now known as West Covina High School. Coyle’s teams won four league titles in seven seasons there. Ed moved on to coach in San Clemente and after four seasons there he came inland to start the program at Chaparral, where despite this year being his first losing season in the books, the mere fact that the Pumas are still going to the playoffs only contributes to his success as a coach. His 533 victories, including 288 at Chaparral, are the third most among active coaches at Inland area schools and on Tuesday, Feb. 11, Coyle was honored during halftime at his final home game. “The alumni, the team, the staff just wanted to come out and make it a special night for him,” said Assistant Principal Gil Compton. “He is a man that really is about shaping the character of young men through basketball.” Former athletic director Mike Rowen stated, “He’s the only boys basketball coach this school has known and Ed has always exempli-
fied the six pillars of CIF character, he always coached with integrity and every team he had pursued victory and honor.” The ceremony at half-time was somewhat of a surprise to Coyle as not only was the court named after him (Coyle Court) but alumni from as far back as his first year of coaching came out to honor him. “I had the pleasure of playing for coach Coyle from 1976 to 1980. He taught me a lot of the ethics I use in my life today and seriously, he’s got one of the sweetest jump shots I’ve ever seen,” exclaimed former player and Montebello alumni Raul Martinez. Edgewood alumni David Cuevas, who played under Coyle during his senior year, spearheaded the attendance of about 10 former players through a social media campaign and said, “The practicing is what kept us coming back, we were always trying to get better than our last game and what’s more important than the wins and losses is that he taught us how to be men.” “I was amazed, I like for it to always be about the kids but I got caught up in it, and it was very emotional. I feel very lucky to get out of the game with this much support,” Coyle, 64, said. “It was a good night for Chaparral basketball and I hope that we continue the tradition of having
Ed Coyle will be retiring from his head coaching role with Chaparral High School this year and the school is paying homage to the most winning coach in its history by naming the gym “Coyle Court.”
a winning program. We’ve had a lot of good teams, many of whom finished second or third,” he said. “We’ve had a lot of good kids play here.” The list of kids he has coached includes his sons, Eddie, who graduated two years ago, and Cody, a senior guard on the current team. “It’s hard on your sons to play for their dad sometimes, but there are a lot of positive aspects that I know they will carry with them for the rest of their lives,” added Coyle. Ed was always his sons’ coach, regardless of the sport. “Of course there were the hard parts along the way, but it’s been great. I’m going to miss it once I graduate,” Cody said of playing for his father.
“I’m not going to close the door on ever coaching again, I’m going to take the year off and see if I can live without basketball. I know I will miss being at practice, preparing for games, the other coaches, the referees, yes the referees, they have to wear the shirt and officiate a quick-paced game and they almost always were great family men, but most of all I will miss the players,” he said. “It was always all about them. My role has been to try to help them, not only with basketball issues but with life issues, and I know I was put here to make them better people through basketball.” To comment on this story online, visit www.myvalleynews.com.

Campbell signs with Chiefs, opens local gym Local athletes travel to train Paul Bandong Staff Writer “It’s definitely worth the time and distance to train here!” exclaimed Mason Walter, a 6’5” 270-pound offensive lineman from Chaparral High School. “Very high intensity; my legs are pretty burned right now,” said an exhausted Kyle Hoppe, a 6’2” 290-pound lineman who plays on both sides of the ball for the Pumas. The two are part of a starting offensive line that loses only one senior; that bodes well for a Chaparral team that was considered young this past year. “We’re expecting a great season,” said Hoppe, “and we’re training to be ready for it.” They were just two of the 60 high school players from all over the Inland Empire who showed up for the grand opening of Winner’s Circle Athletics, a high-performance sports training center in Corona. Also training there were local athletes preparing for college: Tre Watson of Centennial (UC Berkeley), Norco running back Cory Young (Boise State), and Austin Maloata, a 250-pound defensive end from Centennial (Oregon). Professional athletes were also there: Damien Stafford, cornerback (Tennessee Titans); Toby Gerhart and Brandley Russell, running backs (Minnesota Vikings); Vontaze Burfect, the NFL’s leading tackler and an outside linebacker for (Cincinnati Bengals); Darnell Bing, Thorpe Award winner from USC and NFL linebacker; Ontario Colony graduates Omar Bolden, safety (Denver Broncos) and Bobby Wagner, linebacker (Seattle Serahawks). “We’re blessed to have NFL guys and Major League Baseball guys

here to workout and to inspire the younger guys,” said founder Jordan Campbell. The high-performance sports training center was started by Campbell – who recently signed with the Kansas City Chiefs – and Arby Fields, outfielder with the Detroit Tigers and Seattle Mariners and a Los Osos High School (Rancho Cucamonga) graduate. “I want to give back to the community and help the youth understand what it takes to get to the next level – bridge the gap from high school to college and from college to the NFL,” said Campbell. “I came from nothing. I had nothing but my family and my faith. And I want to share my resources to help others and to give them the next-level training they need.” Campbell was a four-year standout at Norco High School, where he contributed to four Cougar CIF championships. He was recruited by USC when they were ranked #1
in the nation. Campbell ended up with an unfortunate situation there, leaving when Pete Carroll left and just before sanctions were meted out by the NCAA. He spent a semester at University of Louisville and then was out of football for a year. Campbell applied for an NCAA waiver and ended up playing Division 2 football at University of New Mexico-Highlands, one of the bottom programs in the nation at the time (1-10 record, ranked 142/142). Other friends and players joined him there and they turned the program around (top 25). Campbell was a two-time AllAmerican with two 100+ tackle seasons and set an RMAC record with a nation-leading 28.5 tackles for loss (TFL) in 2011. In addition to 52 TFL’s, he also recorded 17.5 sacks. Campbell was invited to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl where he was named the ESPN Impact Player of the Game. Despite being

considered undersized at 5’101/2” and 240 pounds, Campbell’s combine results were impressive: 36.5” vertical, 4.58 second 40-yard dash, 7.1 second 7-cone drill, bench press 225 pounds 35 times. He was signed by the Cincinnati Bengals and subsequently released due to a stacked linebacker corps. Campbell signed in January with the Kansas City Chiefs as a linebacker and possible fullback. The Winner’s Circle Athletics gym combines hi-intensity functional training with nutritional education and products, SAT/ACT preparation, and life lessons designed to build character and positive values.

He’s a great ambassador for health and wellness.” “It’s a lot different than our weight room at Chaparral,” said Chaparral’s Mason. “More intensity, different training. It’s worth the 45 minutes to get here. We’ll be making this trip every weekend!” Winner Circle Athletics is located just northwest of the Hwy 15/Hwy 91 interchange at 500 Harrington Street in Corona.
Girls basketball: Great Oak runs over Temecula Valley, 66-28 Wolfpack faces Downey in first round of CIF Playoffs Paul Bandong Staff Writer
Division 2A: Murrieta Mesa (13-14, Southwestern at-large) travels to #5 Oak Hills (22-4, Mojave River #1); winner advances against #12 Savanna (16-8, Orange #1T) or Torrance (13-13, pioneer at-large). #13 Hemet (17-7, Mountain Pass League) hosts Patriot (14-13, River Valley #3); winner will likely face #4 Colony (21-7, Mt Baldy #1) who plays Norwalk (11-16, Suburban #4). 2013 Champion: Redondo Union held off Westlake 68-63 last year.
Local resident Jordan Campbell, a recent signee of the Kansas City Chiefs, addresses a group of student-athletes at the grand opening of Winner Circle Athletics.
The girls’ varsity basketball team from Great Oak had only three seniors –Adrianna Carrillo, Abby Welch, and Roya Rustamzada -recognized at Senior Night, a good sign for the Wolfpack future. The Great Oak team had little trouble with the undersized Temecula Valley team as they came out shooting, leading 21-6 at the end of the opening period. Senior Abby Welch scored eight and Mikayla Williams had six. The second quarter was more of the same as eight TV turnovers gave the fast-breaking Wolfpack offense more opportunities to score. Senior Roya Rustamzada
accounted for ten points; Welch added another seven. The score was 49-17 at halftime. The final score was 66-28 Great Oak. Welch led all scorers with 17; Rustamzada had 13; Williams had 12. Alexis Collins was leading scorer for the Lady Golden Bears with 11. Great Oak finished the regular season at Murrieta Mesa (13-12, 3-6) with a dominant 23-3 first quarter on the way to a 44-28 win to bring their record to 20-3, 8-2 in league. In the February 22 first round of CIF-SS playoffs, the Lady Wolfpack host the Downey Vikings (14-12, 5-5) who finished third in the San Gabriel Valley League.
Lady Pumas upset Broncos 45-42 to end regular season
Both teams in CIF playoffs TEMECULA – The Chaparral Lady Pumas finished off their regular season play by upsetting the Vista Murrieta Broncos 45-42. It was the Broncos’ only loss in league play. Chaparral jumped out to an 11-2 lead in the first quarter and hung on for the win despite being outscored 30-24 in the second half. Junior post player Kali Jones had 21 while senior point guard Sarah Hogman put up 20. The Broncos’ scoring tandem of Brittney Reed and Jaelyn Brown accounted for 19 and 17 points,
respectively. Vista Murrieta was cold from beyond the arc, coming up empty on fifteen attempts. Reed also had 13 rebounds. Two weeks ago, Brown set a school record 44 points beating host Chaparral 72-45. Chaparral (20-6, 6-4, Southwestern #3) faces Rancho Cucamonga (17-6, 8-2, Baseline #2) in the first round of CIF playoffs. Vista Murrieta (21-6, 9-1, Southwestern #1) opens CIF playoffs against Highland from Palmdale (9-10, 7-7, Golden at-large).

Dining in the Valley Create delicious fish on the grill
Delicious seafood recipes can be created on the grill.
ooking on a grill is not just conducive to making steaks or burgers. Seafood is something that also cooks easily and tastefully over an open fire. grill masters too often shy away from cooking seafood on the grill. They may feel it’s too complicated. Although cooking fish on the barbecue requires a little knowhow, it tends to be just as easy as cooking traditional barbecue fare once you get the hang of it. Filleted fish tends to break apart quite easily once it is cooked. If you have reservations about cooking fish on a grill, you may want to start with a thicker cut of fish, or the entire fish itself. Fish steaks are thicker cuts and, though they take longer to cook on the grill, they’ll also hold together better than thin, filet slices. Many different types of fish can be cut into steaks, including halibut, salmon, shark,
tuna, and more. Even if the fish you are cooking is thick, there is still a chance of making a mess of it while grilling unless you follow two important rules: 1. Cook on a well-oiled grill. 2. Don’t touch the fish too much during cooking. A well-oiled surface is essential to keeping the steak or filet from sticking to the rungs of the grill. Many people like to flip grilled
starting to flake apart before you turn it. Then do not handle the fish again until you are ready to take it off the grill. Cooking directly over the flame is fast, but you also can use nonstick foil and steam the fish within a foil packet. With this method of cooking you can better seal in juices and even top the fish with lemon slices or vegetables so the items cook together. Using a foil packet also helps

Mother brings awareness to rare condition pulmonary hypertension Bevi Edlund Special to the Valley News When Kori Siroky, a Temecula resident, was told by doctors that her daughter Lilly Detillion-Siroky, 7, was diagnosed with a rare heart condition called pulmonary hypertension in 2007, she said it was like the scene out of a movie. “Everything was so dizzy, everything shutdown, and I couldn’t hear anything,” Siroky recalled. “I was scared. I didn’t know what it was.” Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is increased pressure in the pulmonary arteries; these arteries are responsible for carrying blood to the heart then to the lungs to pick up oxygen, according to Siroky. PH causes symptoms such as shortness of breath during routine activities, such as climbing stairs, as well as causing tiredness, chest pain, and a racing heartbeat. Lilly is only one of several children in Southern California who has this condition, according to her mother. She was born with three holes in her heart and was diagnosed with PH at 1-year-old. Cardiologists initially told Siroky that most children that have the condition don’t live past the age of 5. Now at age 7, doctors have called Lilly a “miracle child.” Siroky said the situation that her daughter and her family are in is an everyday nightmare. Feeling sometimes helpless, Siroky feels like there is nothing she can do to help her daughter. “I keep my faith, I don’t like to let anything get me upset or scared,” she said. Siroky said the scariest part about the condition is that her daughter’s condition can change at any moment. She explained that for five years the medication that Lilly was taking was working fine until suddenly it wasn’t working anymore, so she needed a new treatment. Lilly also needs to be watched at all times because she could turn pale or pass out at any moment. Siroky explained that the reason why the medication stopped working is because of body growth. As children grow the pressure gets higher, the body is working more, as well as carrying more weight. “When kids with PH get older, they get worse,” she said. Lilly appears to be quite healthy on the outside, so it’s difficult for children to understand her condition, such as Rosalyn Martinez’s son Logan Garcia, 10, who is a longtime friend of Lilly’s and a neighbor of the family. Logan and Lilly like to play

together and when they ride their scooters to school together Martinez has to tell him to slow down. Although she has explained the condition to him, he’s still “perplexed” about it. This condition has affected Lilly’s childhood significantly because she can’t do the same things that other children get to do. Although she can still play like any healthy child, she isn’t able to run like the other children at school. Siroky recalled a time when her daughter was in the first grade and she wasn’t able to take P.E, mostly due to running; because of this the other children called her lazy. “How come I can’t run like the other kids?” Siroky recalled her daughter once asking. “…I just want to be normal.” Since Lilly’s physical activities are limited some of her other favorite activities include drawing and singing. Her mother describes her personality as funny, sweet, sensitive and selfless. Because of her daughter’s condition, it has made Siroky a stronger person because of the strength her daughter has. Joshua Siroky, Lilly’s stepfather, hopes that in the coming years there will be a cure for PH; they also have a younger daughter and are expecting their third child. The
family cherishes every moment together. “We’re scared, but we cherish it,” Siroky said. Siroky wants her daughter to know that it’s ok to be different and that people aren’t going to make fun of her for it. Martinez said the family is handling this “complex disease” as best they can. Siroky said parents need to appreciate their children being able to run and walk, and to “cherish every moment of it.” Unlike the vast awareness of cancer, there isn’t very much awareness on PH, according to Siroky. Therefore in an effort to bring awareness to it a fundraiser will be held to raise money for the Pulmonary Hypertension Association at Pizza Factory on Wednesday March 5. Twenty percent of the orders will be donated to PHA. “[The family] is an inspiration just by putting out the word of what it is,” Martinez said, because the condition is so rare. “There is hope.” Pizza Factory is located at 31725 Temecula Pkwy. in Temecula.

Many men and women over 50 have turned their personal passions into successful second careers.
RIVERSIDE COUNTY – The days when professionals would spend their entire professional lives with a single firm are largely a thing of the past. In fact, many people not only switch companies multiple times before retirement, but some even switch professions before retiring. As exciting as it can be to pursue a new career, men and women over 50 know that such a decision is not without risk. While younger professionals with few obligations can often handle bumps in the road on their way to a second career, older professionals making a similar move often must consider the potential effects such a pursuit might have on their families, finances and futures, including their retirements. But as difficult as it may seem to pursue a second career after your fiftieth birthday, there are steps men and women over 50 can take when pursuing a new career to ensure their second act is as successful as the first. Decide what you want, and not just what you want to do. The desire to pursue a second career no doubt stems from more than just dissatisfaction with a current profession. Many people switch jobs or even careers because they find
their current career is too demanding, leaving little time for family or hobbies that have nothing to do with work. If what you really want is more time at home or more time to pursue a particular hobby, then keep this in mind when looking for a second career, and make sure that career won’t demand too much of your time. For example, if your goal in finding a new career is to get more work-life balance, then starting your own business, which can require long hours at the outset and even after the business has established itself, might not be for you. But if what you want is a more challenging career and to be your own boss, then you will likely find the cost of achieving that goal, even if that cost is more demands on your time, is worth it. Assess your skill set. Professionals over 50 have lots to offer, but it’s still important for such men and women to make an honest assessment of their skill set and find a career in which those skills are transferable. Some men and women might want to pursue a second career that will make little to no use of their skill set, and that’s perfectly alright. But extra schooling might be necessary in such situations, and

Multi-functional fruit, coconut coir
Many companies are selling Coconut Coir over the internet and even some garden centers are starting to carry the mixes.
Ashley Tousignant Special to the Valley News Roy and Robin Siemens, owners of RS Growers Supply, wanted to think ‘outside of the box’ when it came to adding soil to their product line in their company. Their research resulted in an amazing product called Coconut Coir made from the multi-functional fruit, coconuts. After living in Laguna Niguel, the Siemens wanted to move closer to where their nursery clients were, so 13 years ago they decided to move to Fallbrook. After meeting in a country western bar in Lake Forrest, California, Roy was smitten by Robin’s passion to dance and her love of life. After dating for four years, they married in 1999 and created a loving joint family with Roy’s daughter, Alicia. Together, the Siemens created RS Growers Supply. Roy had been in the horticultural business for more than 30 years and Robin

joined right in to create the new company. The Siemens were already selling specific items that growers needed, such as pots and fertilizer so soil was the next logical product line. Roy wanted to find a soil that was unique and environmentally stimulating. In his search, he found the coconut. Coconut Coir, or ‘Coco Coir’ sparked his interest and he wanted to learn more about this remarkable product. “Coco Coir is a fruit that is renewable every 3-4 months and it grows great root structure for the plants because it naturally offers 20-25 percent air – which roots love,” said Roy. “It has amazing capacity to hold water and rehydrate easily when plants dry out in nursery pots.” This was the perfect soil Roy was searching for. Two years ago, Roy founded a new partnership called Tri Prime Solutions LLC (TPS) with a Dutch company Van Der Knaap and a Vietnemese company Plant Best. The main purpose of the new partnership was to supply the best coir in the world to western United States professional growers and soil companies. “We feel blessed to have great partners in Plant Best and Van Der Knapp,” noted Roy. “Our partners not only offer the best manufacturing of coir in the world, but they offer integrity in how we deal with each other and our customers and that is priceless to Robin and me.” Thijs Millinnar built Plant Best into a world leader in horticulture
Be safe at home, too Sam DiGiovanna Fire Chief Special to the Valley News On average, 20,000 deaths and 21 million medical visits occur annually. Firefighters and paramedics respond to thousands of accidents every day. Follow some of these tips to help prevent accidents in your home. In the bathroom, cleaners should be locked away out of the reach of children. Medications, scissors, razor blades and cleaning supplies should be kept in a locked cabinet or out of the reach of children and pets. Non-skid appliqués in the tub and shower can prevent slips and falls. Children should not be left unattended in or around the pool. Pool areas should be fenced in with a gate secured with a childproof safety lock or latch. Children can stick objects in open sockets and get hurt. Unused electrical outlets must have safety plugs to prevent accidental electrocution from foreign objects being
put in the socket. Every home should have a fire extinguisher. Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors should be on each floor of the home and tested monthly. Batteries should be changed at least every six months or as necessary. A fire extinguisher must be accessible. Keep paper towels, plastic plates, plastic utensils and anything other than cooking equipment away from the stove. These items can easily start a fire if left too close. Keep pesticides and cleaners away from children. Store chemicals in a locked cabinet or keep on a high shelf that children cannot reach. Do not spray bug spray or pesticides near a child’s toys since toys tend to go into a child’s mouth. In addition, never leave household chemicals unattended, unfortunately, small children may try to open the products and drink the contents. For additional home safety tips contact your local fire department and visit www.nsc.org.

retail packaging of coir products, including coir pots and coir garden starter kits that are sold to big box stores. The other Tri Prime Solutions’ partner Van Der Knaap is headquartered in the Netherlands and is the largest coir processor in the world. They own or manage 14 different coir and peat processing plants around the world with over 500 employees worldwide. They manufacture high quality potting mixes for growers across Western Europe and the rest of the key horticultural world including USA, Canada, Mexico, China, Korea, Japan, Columbia, Turkey, Kenya and South Africa. Their Interna-
tional Marketing Director Ludo van Boxem is the key technical adviser to the large growers TPS is marketing coir to. Many companies are selling the coir over the internet and even some garden centers are starting to carry the mixes. Coir can be purchased by the block and it typically weighs 9-11 pounds each. To use these coir blocks, one simply puts the blocks in a wheel barrel and adds water. Once the mixture is stirred, it is ready to be used. One then should mix it with their garden soil; this lightens up the soil and brings the ability for the roots in the garden plants to receive more air and hold water longer below the ground sur-
face. As more professional growers embrace this product, coir will be available to everyday garden enthusiasts. Living in Fallbrook, Roy and Robin are able to enjoy all the plant materials they have planted over the past 10 years on their half-acre. “We love plants, hydrangeas and succulents especially,” said Robin. “Roses, ornamental grasses, fruit trees, various palms are also enjoyed by us. We’ve never regretted our move to Fallbrook. If you love plants, Fallbrook is a great place to live – it has an amazing climate!” To comment on this story online, visit www.myvalleynews.com.
Bathroom renovations add value, luxury RIVERSIDE COUNTY – Bathroom renovations are second to kitchen renovations on the list of the top remodeling projects to increase home value. The popularity of bathroom renovations and their ability to transform a space has left many homeowners wondering if there are any easy and affordable ways to change the look of their bathrooms. While “easy” is a relative term, there are ways homeowners willing to make certain concessions can keep the work and cost of a bathroom renovation to a minimum. Resurface When possible, covering up what you have in the bathroom is much less expensive and less laborintensive than tearing out existing fixtures and floors and replacing them anew. Resurfacing can extend to refinishing bathtubs to installing shower liners. Those who have unsightly walls or wallpaper that they’re just not ready to remove may consider using wainscoting to cover a portion of the room or even tiling entire walls. It is important to note that resurfacing and covering up items in the bathroom should only be reserved for cosmetic fixes. If something needs to be replaced because it is damaged or mildew-covered, then covering it up is only hiding the problem and asking for more work in the long run. Scale back on materials One way to save money on a bathroom renovation project is to choose less expensive materials. For example, you may not need to install travertine or marble flooring in a space where less expensive flooring like vinyl is adequate. Advancements in vinyl flooring have enabled this affordable material to mimic the look of more expensive materials at a fraction of the cost. When redoing tile on walls and shower enclosures, many
domestically-produced tiles rival the looks of more expensive imported alternatives. You may be able to save more by buying tile in bulk and using the remainder in other applications around the house. Paint Do not underestimate the power of a fresh coat of paint on any room in the house, including the bathroom. Dark, small spaces can be made to look more expansive with lighter colors. Cavernous bathrooms that look empty may prove more inviting with darker hues. Pick a paint that is designed for bathroom application so that it will inhibit the growth of mold and mildew. Update hardware A new faucet or some new cabinet pulls can make the room look new and fresh without breaking the
bank. Match finishes throughout the bathroom so everything will be cohesive. When shopping for a new shower head, choose a model that also conserves water. This way you will be making cosmetic and energy-saving renovations at the same time. DIY Handling labor yourself instead of hiring workers can reduce the cost of bathroom remodels considerably. It is possible to buy fully assembled bathroom vanities and install them yourself. Even installing a new toilet is relatively easy with the help of a friend. There are a number of ways to make bathroom renovations a bit easier and more affordable. Even nominal changes can give the space an entirely different look and feel, which can make the room more enjoyable and help improve a home’s resale value in the process.
