Parents upset with district’s handling of autistic child Michelle Mears-Gerst Special to the Valley News

Kindergartner Christopher Martinez’s Valentine’s Day party at Herk Bouris Elementary School was supposed to be a fun day with his classmates. The six-year-old went shopping with his mom, handpicked a box of Angry Birds cards to pass out to his friends, along with treats. However, on Feb. 12, the day before the party, Christopher received a school suspension for having an autism-related breakdown in class. The Martinez family is upset saying their child’s needs are not being met and their concerns are not being addressed properly by the Menifee Unified School District. His father, Clifford Martinez, reported that when he came to school at the end of the day to pick up his son he found him sitting in the office. The annual Rod Run event attracts more than 70,000 visitors to Old Town streets.

Temecula sets pair of changes as city preps for its first Rod Run Tim O’Leary Staff Writer Temecula has rolled out a pair of big changes – a youth fun zone and a key parking restriction – for the first Rod Run to be operated by the city. Planning for the annual Rod Run, which will turn Old Town into a sea of chrome and color on March 7-8, is heading down the home stretch. City officials have jumped into the driver’s seat for the first time, but it remains uncertain whether the

3 Doors Down 95-year-old Navy veteran to headline  Youth art exhibit introduces street painting and Pearl Harbor survivor Saturday at shares story with West to annual event Balloon & Coast Ammo audience Wine Festival Alex Groves Staff Writer

People young and old arrived in groups to learn the various steps necessary to make an image come to life on an asphalt canvas.

Alex Groves Staff Writer Children’s art was celebrated during the Promenade Mall’s Annual Youth Art Exhibit, which was available to the public from Feb. 3-28 and which featured more than 500 works of art from various area schools. All throughout the mall visitors could see paintings, metal work, photographs and similar items. All of these were made by local students from schools in Temecula, Murrieta, and Menifee, according to Event Organizer Gregory Kimd. Kimd was one of many people who was at the Promenade Mall on Feb. 22, when the exhibit was paired with a special street painting festival which took place in the section of street located between

the front entrance of the Promenade Mall and the Edwards movie theater. This was the first year a street painting event was paired with the art exhibit but not the first year where active performance became part of the display, according to event organizer. He said that last year a student jazz band played in the area, providing visitors with the sound of music as they took in the sites of art. Kimd would know a lot about what’s been done with the event over the years. He’s been involved with it since early 2007, when he first arrived to the Temecula area and became part of the bourgeoning arts council there. The art council has since dissolved

Yeoman Durrell Conner was wrapping presents for his sister’s children on what seemed to be an average, run-of-the-mill day when Japanese forces unexpectedly attacked Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941 and torpedoed his ship, the U.S.S California, and others. The day would become what Conner has described as the longest in his life, and it was the events that occurred over the course of that day that he discussed with a group of nearly two dozen individuals who packed a backroom of West Coast Ammo in Temecula at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 22. The event was part of a series that occurs monthly and is put on

by The World War II Experience, a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching audiences about the history of World War II by focusing on the stories of the people that were there. The organization was founded by Linda Dudik, PhD., a former Palomar College professor who felt compelled to share the stories of veterans and how those stories fit into a historical context. That’s exactly what she’s been doing since she started a partnership with West Coast Ammo, where speaker events are held. Dudik said that it’s particularly important to hear firsthand accounts of what occurred at Pearl Harbor because such stories shed light on

Hard News Judge orders Murrieta man to stand trial for murder of grandmother whose body remains missing

JP Raineri photos

Kyle Roger McLean, 22, is charged with the murder of his grandmother.

MURRIETA – On Friday, Feb. 21 a Riverside County judge found there is enough evidence for a Murrieta man to stand trial for the murder of his grandmother. Kyle Roger McLean, 22, of Murrieta, is charged with the July 2013 murder of his grandmother, Catherine Sutton, 71. If convicted as now charged, McLean faces up to 25 years to life in prison. After about two and half days of evidence and testimony at the preliminary hearing, Judge Angel Bermudez found there was enough evidence for McLean to stand trial as charged. McLean now has an information arraignment scheduled for March 7 at the Southwest Justice Center. Catherine Sutton has been missing since July 11, 2013. Her daughter reported her missing to Murrieta

police the evening of July 14, 2013. Based on the evidence in this case, including evidence collected at her Murrieta home on Graystone Lane, it is believed that Sutton was murdered. McLean lived at his grandmother’s home at the time of the murder. At this time, McLean’s body has not been located. In July 2013, a second man entered a guilty plea to the court to being an accessory to a felony in connection with the murder. Neil Michael Erickson, 18, of Wildomar, was sentenced on Sept. 6, 2013, to 270 days in custody and five years of formal probation. He is currently out of jail and on probation. The case is being prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Garcia.

High school soccer coach pleads guilty to seeking sex with player MURRIETA – A former Murrieta Valley High School girls soccer coach who tried to coax a player into having sex with him pleaded guilty on Feb. 25 to attempted statutory rape. Daniel Ryan Kelly, 27, of Temecula could face probation and jail time when sentenced May 2 by Riverside County Superior Court Judge Albert Wojcik. During a pretrial hearing at the Southwest Justice Center, the defense and prosecution notified Wojcik that a plea deal had been reached in the case. In exchange for his plea to the attempted statutory rape count, the District Attorney’s Office will drop a felony charge of arranging to meet a minor for the purpose of sex and a misdemeanor charge of annoying a child. There was no indication of what sentence the judge might impose. Kelly remains free on $25,000 bail. The defendant was arrested on

Jan. 28, 2013, following an investigation into his interactions with a 16-year-old girl. The youth, identified only as Jane Doe, was a member of the Murrieta Valley High School girls’ junior varsity soccer team. Kelly was a walk-on coach, but did not teach at the school, according to police. Prosecutors alleged that Kelly took an interest in the teen and began communicating with her regularly via phone and text messaging. When the girl confided that she was feeling a lot of stress at home, the defendant told her that one way to alleviate her stress was to have sex, according to a trial brief filed by Deputy District Attorney Julie Baldwin. “Defendant told Jane Doe that if she wanted to talk about sex with use a ‘code word,’ either ‘Training’ or ‘Workout’ with a capital letter, and he would understand that to mean she was referring to

sex,” Baldwin wrote. Kelly gave the girl a ride to a soccer tournament in Anaheim and told her that when he was younger, he dealt with anxiety by engaging in sexual intercourse, according to the trial brief. When the defendant persisted in broaching the subject, the victim began to feel “uncomfortable” and told friends – including a parent – about what was happening, Baldwin said. She said the information was passed to Murrieta police detectives, who had the victim make a “pretext” phone call to see if Kelly would make any admissions that could be recorded. The conversation led to Kelly arranging to rendezvous with the girl outside a Temecula restaurant, with a plan to go from the eatery to an RV, where Kelly could start “Training” with the teenager, according to Baldwin.

Ro d m a n a n d t h e s u s p e c t , 32-year-old Wildomar resident Maria Vihanek, were in a dating relationship and had a six-monthold baby together, the sheriff’s department announced.

MURRIETA – A June 16 trial date was scheduled on Feb. 24 for a convicted felon accused of inflicting a near-fatal beating on a San Jacinto convenience store clerk who tried to stop him from stealing liquor. Robert Victor Gomez, 21, of Hemet could face more than 20 years behind bars if convicted of the Dec. 23, 2012, pre-dawn attack on an employee at a 7-Eleven in the 1400 block of South San Jacinto Avenue. Gomez is charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, burglary, fraud and a sentence-enhancing allegation of causing great bodily injury resulting in a coma. During a status hearing at the Southwest Justice Center in Murrieta, Riverside County Superior Court Judge Timothy Freer tenta-

number of times and was able to make his way to the giant resort casino’s lobby, Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Manning said. Sheriff’s dispatchers received a 911 call at 10:56 p.m. Friday about a bloodied man in the lobby. They also discovered Vihanek in the hotel room the shooting occurred. Rodman was taken to Temecula Valley Hospital, where he died early Saturday, Feb. 22 the Riverside County Coroner’s Office reported. Casino spokeswoman Ciara Green couldn’t recall the last time a shooting occurred there. The casino continued its operations Friday night while sheriff’s detectives conducted their investigation in the lobby area and hotel room, Green said.

tively set the defendant’s trial for the second week of June after the prosecution and defense agreed to clear their calendars for that time period. An intervening status conference is scheduled April 7 to confirm both sides are on track. Gomez remains in custody in lieu of $1 million bail at the Smith Correctional Facility in Banning. Sheriff’s investigators allege Gomez walked into the 7-Eleven, grabbed a 40-ounce beer bottle and proceeded to leave without paying for it. The clerk chased after the defendant, who allegedly swung around and smashed the bottle into the man’s head. The victim, identified only as John Doe in court documents, collapsed unconscious in the store parking lot, and Gomez initially ran away, but returned to pummel him, authorities allege. According to sheriff’s Sgt. Scott Sargent, an outdoor video surveillance camera captured the entire episode. “The suspect...punched the victim repeatedly with his fists as the victim lay unconscious and then fled the scene on foot,” Sargent alleged. The clerk was hospitalized with major head trauma. He has since recovered. According to sheriff’s officials, a crime technician analyzed the tape and recognized Gomez from an unrelated incident that happened hours before the attack. The defendant’s identity was confirmed, and four days later, he was arrested outside a Hemet business on State Street. According to court records, Gomez has an August 2011 conviction for misdemeanor burglary and a February 2012 conviction for felony burglary. He pleaded guilty both times and was sentenced to probation for each crime. To comment on this story online, visit

handle him,” said Perez. Perez said she is not upset with the teacher. She knows that having 31 students in kindergarten is a lot and throwing in a child with autism just makes the situation harder. “The district will not comment on specific children, teachers, or what has been allegedly discussed. All teachers have classroom management and behavioral training. Specialists are available at every site who [have] knowledge about autism. Resources are available to all staff to support every child,” said Cadmus. Christopher’s family said they have tried to get him into the Chester W. Morrison Elementary School that has a program for autism children and it is closer to their home as well. “We can walk to Chester W. Morrison but we are told we have to do a district transfer even though it is two blocks from our home and the school said our son first has to qualify. I am almost ready to take him out of the school district,” said Perez. Priscilla Hoaglin, the aunt of Christopher who lives with the Martinez family, said the Valentine’s Day suspension was the last straw for her and that is why she reached out to the media to share her sister’s story. “I see her frustration when she comes back from school. I see her cry. This Valentine’s Day party my nephew missed out on was the icing on the cake,” said Hoaglin. “I feel like I am not being heard,” said Perez. “The school he is at now doesn’t have a program for autism and the school said they would try to get him into one but first they needed to get him enrolled.” “We have a full range and continuum of programs available. Placement is determined based on student individualized needs,” said Cadmus. After this month’s suspension, the school did decide to place

an aid in the classroom to work directly with Christopher. Perez said she is happy he will have an aid but not happy it took multiple outbursts and a suspension to prove he needed an aid. Children with autism are also known to escape or run from their safe surroundings, said Perez. Earlier this school year Christopher snuck out of his classroom. Perez said he went through two doors that were supposed to be locked and made it out as far as the sidewalk before school staff found him. “Once again no one from the school called me to let me know my child tried to run away,” said Perez, who was only told about the incident when she came to pick up her son. “Generally, if we have a child who elopes from class, we have a discussion about how best to support the student and a safety plan will be established,” said Cadmus. “To ensure environmental safety, strategies will be put in place such as having the student seated away from the exit door and to be placed closer to where the teacher is. In addition, the teacher or other staff members will stand between the child and exit door if they are attempting to leave the room.” Perez said she and her family have turned to the media for help because she has found there is a shortage of help in her Menifee community for children with autism and she wants other parents to know they are not alone. According to Cadmus, out of the 9,329 students in the Menifee School District, there are currently 1,085 students receiving special educational support services including support for children with autism. “You can’t see autism. He looks like a normal child and people don’t understand autism,” said Hoaglin. To comment on this story online, visit

“We were told Christopher had a meltdown in class and stripped off all his clothes in front of the other students,” said Perez. “We were told he was suspended and couldn’t attend the party the next day.” “Our child should not have been suspended. It is common for a child with autism to react like our son did and strip off his clothes,” said Perez, who said she does not condone her child’s meltdowns but it is not the same as misbehaving from a normal child. Perez said she has tried to get school officials to understand her child’s autism needs are not being met. “The district will not comment based on specific students but we follow the education code,” said Betti Cadmus, public information officer for the Menifee Unified School District. “We respond to each individual situation in accordance to guidelines and procedures stated in education code. If necessary, we develop and implement individual student safety plans and if needed, we can revise the individualized education plans.” Christopher has had other autism-related outbursts since he started kindergarten according to Perez. In December, his class was practicing for a Christmas play when during practice he got upset with a teacher and lashed out. “I am worried about my son hurting another child. I don’t even know if other parents know my son has autism, that he isn’t just misbehaving,” said Perez, who says she sees the looks other parents give her when on campus or at least she feels she is getting “looks.” Educationally, Christopher’s parents said his grades are great but his special needs are not being met. “His teacher told me she doesn’t know how to calm my son down when he starts to get upset. She told us she doesn’t have enough help to

Local Frank ‘The Tank’ Golf Classic to be held March 1 TEMECULA – Franklin “Frank” Boschma is a 20-year-old young man who has won the love and support of his friends, associates, and church family with his inspiring spirit and optimism, despite the crippling disorder he lives with every minute of every day. Frank was born with X Linked SMA, Arthrogryposis or SMA type 2. This degenerative disease rendered him with almost no muscle movement throughout his body. He breathes through a ventilator and gets food and nutrition through a gastric tube. Still, he can smell, taste, laugh, feel, love, and enjoy. Each day is a challenge for Frank, because everything that brings joy brings a host of challenges for survival as well.

His love for life and his adventurous spirit are limited by the disease that keeps him trapped in a chair that blocks his path to experiencing the simple joys of life – exploring a hillside, bending to look closer into the face of a dog, or dipping a toe at the water’s edge. On Saturday, March 1 you can help Franklin “Frank” Laurence Boschma enjoy the small pleasures of life by participating in the Frank “The Tank” Golf Classic at Temecula Creek Inn presented by the Boy Scouts of America Troop 90. Jeff Kurtz, general manager of Promenade Temecula and a local resident, has known Frank and his family for 11 years. “Frank is an inspiration to me. It is my honor to help Troop 90 plan this golf tournament to raise funds

to get Frank an Action TrackChair that will allow him to move and explore on his own and experience the wonders of the world that before now have been unreachable for him,” said Kurtz. Kurtz added, “The specialized chair will give Frank greater freedom and independence. We just need to raise $14,000 to make this a reality for Frank.” For $100 per person, or $400 per foursome, you will enjoy a day of golf at the beautiful Temecula Creek Inn while helping an amazing young man experience the simple joys of life. Registration is at 7 a.m. with an 8 a.m. shot gun start. Reserve your space early by calling Jeff Kurtz at (951) 294-8395 or email

Local Letter to the Editor

Believing in miracles

  So many of us are facing adversity of one kind or another. Whatever it may be, consider yourself not alone. It’s important to look beyond the problem, step back and try to visualize a solution. Sometimes when we remove ourselves from the actual problem it can make it easier to think about. For those who believe in miracles actually see miracles happen before their eyes. It may be small, but nevertheless, it’s a miracle. The smallest blessings can make the biggest impact. If we stop and look around each day, you’ll see miracles all around you.  Many of us are hoping and praying for certain changes in our lives. Health issues, job loss, relationships that didn’t work out, or any number of things that have gone wrong. With faith and patience, we will see our miracles take place. Staying positive in a negative situation can make all the difference in the world. Open up your mind to receive only good things that will come your way. Don’t accept anything in your life that isn’t uplifting and good. After awhile, you’ll begin to notice the change that takes place. When you believe in yourself, you’ll see new doors of opportunity open up for you. Take the steps to enter through those welcoming doors. Just believe and have faith in the impossible, and the possibilities will be endless. You never know when a miracle will come your way. Cheers to miracles!   Brenda McBride Temecula Editor’s Note: Opinions do not necessarily reflect the views of the Valley News staff. We invite opinions on all sides of an issue.

VETERAN from page A-1 just how difficult it was to be under attack and they also remind people of the significance of the date that President Franklin D. Roosevelt said would live in infamy. “One of my Pearl Harbor friends always understood that they’re known as Pearl Harbor survivors,” Dudik said. “But he liked to call himself and the other people that were there Pearl Harbor defenders because they were on the front line that day.” “We especially welcome children (to the event) because we’re hoping future generations will know December 7th,” she said. The audience present became enthralled in a presentation led by Dudik that discussed the life of the now 95-year-old Conner and how his environment and the era he grew up in impacted his decision to enlist in the armed services. Conner joined at a time when it was actually very difficult to become a part of the Navy because, in the midst of the depression, everyone wanted to have a job. The Navy’s promise of a monthly salary, food and a bed was something that drew in huge numbers of people to enlist and that number was so large, according to Dudik, that only one in ten people was actually accepted. But Conner was not like many of his peers; he had worked to finish a high school diploma, a thing that very few GIs had at that time. In fact only one in every four GIs had a grade school education, according to Dudik. After being accepted into the Navy and going through boot camp in San Diego, Conner was assigned to the U.S.S. California where he started as a wiper. He cleaned the long-range guns on the ship. Eventually Conner would hear of an opening on the admiral’s staff when he was stationed in Norfolk, Virginia. The position was to work in communications, which Conner was well-suited for since he had learned how to type during his high school years. He spent his days uncoding and recoding messages, many of which were top-secret. Conner was still a cryptographer when the U.S.S. California was

stationed in Pearl Harbor and had been getting the presents ready for his relatives at such an early date because of the way mail was processed. “Back then we didn’t have mail like we know it now,” Conner said. “We had clipper ship or clipper plane that came in once a month and so we were advised that we should wrap our Christmas presents and get them on the mail early otherwise they’d never get there in time.” “I was wrapping Christmas presents for my nephew and niece and that’s when I heard this commotion,” he said. “And that’s when I looked over the port and I saw an airplane, real low, coming at us and he dropped something and he has banked away that’s when I saw the red emblem of the rising sun on the plane so I knew what he had dropped.” The torpedo, one of at least two that hit the ship around 8:05 a.m., hit about 15 or 20 feet under where the cryptographer said he had been standing. Everybody went to their battle stations on the ship as it began to sink according to Conner. One of the torpedoes had gone through the ship and exploded, killing at least one hundred of the men. At some point during the ensu-

ing chaos, Conner said he did something that he hoped would raise morale among the men. The American flag, which had been dropped by the Marines in the ensuing attack, was lying on the ground. Conner picked it up and hoisted it onto the line on the ship for everybody to see. Today the California Department of Veteran’s Affairs in Sacramento claims to have the flag Conner raised, but he’s not sure it is the right flag. He’ll be going to Sacramento next week alongside Yeoman Durrell Conner shared his experiences Dudik to determine as a Pear Harbor survivor to an enthusiastic if it is.

Local ROD from page A-1 measures up as one of the city’s most popular community events. It is hard to say, she said, whether it attracts more visitors than the city’s July 4th festivities or some other large-scale events. In some years, especially during sunny weekends, the Rod Run has attracted more than 70,000 visitors to Old Town streets. Sullivan said the city has extensive experience planning small and large community events, and this process has rendered a solid working group of Old Town merchants and vintage vehicle buffs. “I think it’s been positive,” Sullivan said. “I haven’t heard anything negative.” Since its loose-knit beginning more than 25 years ago, the annual car show has been sponsored by a coalition of business and community leaders as well as a nonprofit group formed mostly of vintage car and truck owners and enthusiasts. That nonprofit group fragmented after one of its leaders moved out of state. The city initially fielded proposals from four organizations, including a founder of the group

that operated the Rod Run beginning in 1999. But a city committee shifted gears and recommended that Temecula, rather than any of the four applicants, run the event for one year or more. Some council members and staff cited other key city events – including popular parades and Old Town gatherings – as examples of Temecula’s ability to organize and produce major functions. They also noted that the city has played a key role in past Rod Runs by reviewing permit applications and ensuring that operating conditions were met. In July, the City Council voted to place the signature event in Temecula’s hands. Some council members said Temecula’s oversight would just be for this Rod Run, but they left the door open for possibly keeping it under the city’s control indefinitely. The event annually attracts baby boomers, families and vintage car enthusiasts from a swath of inland and coastal communities. Food booths and vendors add to the appeal as visitors and vehicles jam the closed roadways and sidewalks.

The event, which for many years was also held every fall, is seen as an economic development jewel for the city and its historic business district. Temecula has typically paid the law enforcement costs of the event as well as the public works, fire protection and other municipal expenses. That cost is expected to total about $63,000 this year, according to a city staff report prepared in July. Adamiak said the city is on track to spend about that much this year. Past events have often generated surplus funds that are typically distributed to nonprofit groups as well as service clubs that assist with parking and other Rod Run tasks. City staff has estimated that a potential financial windfall of about $35,000 might be generated this year. Such a surplus would be diverted into an existing pool of city funds that are annually distributed to local nonprofit groups that undergo a detailed application and review process. In preparation for city operations, Temecula staff created an outline detailing the roles of the city, an Old Town merchants group and car club liaisons before and during the Rod Run. Most of the key tasks are being done by city staff, Adamiak said, but volunteers are issuing parking passes and performing other duties. Issuing parking passes for the city’s parking structure has been delegated to the Old Town merchants group, she said. That structure, which is connected to Temecula’s landmark Civic Center complex, has been used for past Rod Runs and numerous other Old Town events since it opened in December 2010. Temecula’s 95,500-square-foot Civic Center complex cost about $73 million in land, infrastructure

ART from page A-1 but Kimd said his interest in providing a forum to promote children’s art was never waning. “Many schools have lost funding for culture and arts,” he said. “I’ve always in my career supported youth-oriented activities, this being one of them.” The art-enthusiast worked to seek out an organization that would be willing to partner with the Promenade Mall to make the event a reality and found a match in Kiwanis Club, a service organization that has often reached out to communities to help facilitate projects beneficial to children. He said Kiwanis has been a big help in sponsoring the event. Kimd said that some of the biggest supporters of the event have been the parents and family members of the children who get to see their work on display. “To date, as of last Thursday, I’ve received over 140 e-mails and probably a couple dozen phone calls from parents, grandparents,

and construction costs. The facility at Mercedes and Main streets includes a parking garage, conference center, city offices, outdoor amphitheater and satellite police and tourism promotion offices. Adamiak said a consensus was reached this year to limit parking in the garage to Old Town residents and business owners and employees. She said that decision was reached, in part, because of the parking crunch that can grip Old Town when it is jammed by visitors from Southern California and beyond. “There weren’t a lot of (parking) options for them,” she said. As in the past, shuttles on Sat-


Temecula’s Rod Run, which for the first year will be operated by the city, will be held Friday (March 7) and Saturday (March 8). Past events have attracted as many as 70,000 people who look on as 700 or more antique or vintage cars and trucks are displayed or driven in Old Town Temecula. Vendors, food booths, a youth fun zone and other attractions will also be featured. Below is a synopsis of the free event and some suggestions. FRIDAY: An antique and vintage vehicle cruise will take place from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. Vehicle access will be closed between the pair of metal Old Town arches. The city’s multi-story parking garage will be open along Mercedes Street. SATURDAY: An antique and vintage vehicle “Show and Shine” will jam Old Town streets and sidewalks from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Vehicle access will be closed between the pair of metal Old Town arches. Due to the amount of pedestrian congestion, organizers discourage visitors from bringing dogs, scooters or skateboards. The city’s multistory parking garage will be closed to the public and available only to Old Town residents, merchants and workers. Shuttles will run between three free parking areas designated by the city. PARKING AREAS: • City park and ride area at Interstate 15 exit at Temecula Parkway. • Dirt lot at the intersection of Santiago and Ynez roads east of I-15. • The former city hall building at Business Park Drive and Rancho Way.

saying, ‘Terrific. Keep it up.’” Perhaps the big draw to the event on Feb. 22 though was the chalk painting. Children young and old arrived in groups to learn the various steps necessary to make an image come to life on an asphalt canvas. They learned how to sketch, grid, blend, and detail and were able to do so at the direction of people like Commissioned Street Painter Cecelia Linayao. Linayao, who has exhibited her artwork around the world, said she relishes the opportunity to teach children because she’s able to hone their creative energies. “Every child has an individual or unique trait,” Linayao said. “So with art, they can really utilize that.” “So if someone is kind of on the wild side and doesn’t draw within the lines, that’s OK,” she said. “And if someone’s a little more systematic, that’s OK too. And that’s the beauty of art is that it takes into account everybody’s uniqueness.” The professional artist said she

Real Estate

Real estate market changes: Obamacare and escrows

John Occhi, Mike Mason Special to the Valley News Tuesday morning, Feb. 18, at the Southwest Riverside County Association of REALTORS® (SRCAR) weekly marketing meeting, Gene Wunderlich, SRCAR Government Affairs Director (GAD), alerted REALTORS® to an alarming trend that is developing and spreading heartache across the State of California, soon to be here in the TemeculaMurrieta Valley. Without advocating for or against our president and his legendary Affordable Health Care Reform Act, commonly known as Obamacare, there are two issues that will affect real estate sales from this point forward. New capital gains tax on the rich The first issue is not going to have a direct effect on very many transactions – but those that it does will feel the consequences. There is

now a 3.8 percent tax on high income home sellers, earning in excess of $200,000 or $250,000 for married couples filed jointly. The income is for adjusted gross income (AGI). The new tax is on their capital gains in excess of $250,000 for the single seller or $500,000 for the married taxpayers. This is obviously a very quick snapshot of the new tax and if you want to know more, you really need to discuss the matter with your tax professional for advice that is pertinent to you. Your health insurance and your new mortgage When qualifying for a mortgage, the lender has always looked at your debt to income ratio, or DTI. Under the new rules of the Dodd-Frank Act, mortgages have to meet the new “qualified mortgage” (QM). The new QM has a ceiling of 43 percent DTI for most government-sponsored agencies (GSA) like VA, FHA, Fannie Mae, Freddy Mac, USDA, etc. It was 45 percent DTI last year for those of you keeping score. Again, there is much to this discussion and certainly not enough room here to discuss in any detail. I just wanted to lay the foundation for the scenario Mr. Wunderlich shared

at the SRCAR weekly marketing meeting. Lenders have always looked at the borrower’s monthly bills and obligations in determining debt. This includes rent/mortgage payments, utilities, un-used gym memberships, child care and everything else the borrower spends their money on. This is revealed on the loan application and verified by reviewing three months (or more) of bank statements. Simply put, the law now requires everyone to be covered or pay a fine. It’s no longer an option as some lenders up north see it. Therefore, if you never had insurance in the past, you must have it today. If it’s something you must have, then it is one more debt that needs to be factored into your DTI. Even if you have had health insurance for years, chances are very good that you’ll be paying more for it, resulting in more debt each and every month. Check with a trust insurance agent to confirm. What should you do? I suppose that depends if you are in favor of the law or not. Either way, contact your local politicians and let them know how you feel. If you are planning on buying a home anytime soon, I’d look hard

at doing it sooner rather than later. Apparently, this trend has started in Northern California where one title company has had nine escrows fall out so far this year because of the DTI factoring in health insurance that the borrower did not have prior to this year. While there are no known cases here in the TemeculaMurrieta Valley, or elsewhere in Southern California, it’s believed to only be a matter of time before it reaches us. Check with your trusted local REALTOR® and lender to make sure you are covered. They will make sure you find that right home within

your budget meeting all your needs. Call us today and get the information you need to make the right decision. The info is free, call now! (951) 296-8887.

The Movie Review: “The Lego Movie” Robert T. Nickerson Special to the Valley News With the simple sound of a clip, two little bricks can become whatever the creator wants. I cannot imagine a world where a child does not know what a Lego is. I used to have a ton of sets. I remember getting plenty of city sets – I was the one in the Lego store begging my parents for the Star Wars Millennium Falcon set, and you can’t imagine how many years a Hogwarts castle set was on my Christmas list. I spent a gook chunk of my afternoons reading the instructions on which parts would lead me closer to the final image on the box. It’s been a while since I’ve had my hands on Legos (my sets were either handed down to my cousins or donated to Goodwill), but it’s good to see that children of today still like to play with these kind of toys. Legos have been around for a while and will continue to stay around because it accomplishes something that few inventions can – it’s simple, but allows for millions of possibilities. A cottage house can

suddenly become an army tank, a race car can turn into a cruise boat, and every Lego person can be anybody. It is your own God-like power to make an entire universe. And based on the universe created in The Lego Movie, all worlds are endless. In a massive Lego city, an ordinary construction worker named Emmet (played by Chris Pratt) lives life as it is, with the same job, same song on the radio (the really catchy “Everything is AWESOME!!”), and instructions on how to have a happy living. Closing time at the latest building construction has him finding a woman named Wyldstyle (played by Elizabeth Banks) searching for something. As Emmet tries to talk to her he falls down a hole where he finds the mysterious Piece of Resistance. Emmet wakes up to find the Piece of Resistance attached to him, in the custody of Bad Cop (played by Liam Neeson), who is the right hand of the world’s ruler, President Business (played by Will Ferrell). As Emmet learns of the plan to destroy the world with Kraggle (Krazy Glue), Wyldstyle helps

him escape into another territory in the Lego Old West world. It’s there he meets the blind wizard Vitruvius (played by Morgan Freeman) where it is told that Emmet is supposed to be the master builder and restore creative freedom to all the Lego worlds. As a guy who always follows instructions, that’s going to be tough to convince. I don’t care if The Lego Movie could have been a giant commercial for the toys, it is the smartest blockbuster a Lego film can be. I should bring up the animation. While over a million real Legos were used, it is mixed with computer animation to create a matching picture that looks like a traditional stop-motion film. The effect plays for a lot of advantage as everything is made out of of Legos – the streets, animals, mountains, and even the ocean water is made from Legos. Animation aside, this was clearly made as a comedy before anything, because this is also one of the best comedies I’ve seen in awhile. This is a laugh per minute movie as every scene had a joke that I burst out loud laughing. Not one joke failed.

And this is because the entire cast consists of comedians who play out their strongest material: Chris Pratt with his naive take on the world, Liam Neeson with his tough guy exterior, Will Ferrell as his typical maniac persona, and Will Arnett as an egocentric Batman.

An extraordinary reaction to the passing of Black Beauty TEMECULA –Villa Chardonnay Equine Sanctuary (VCES), one of the nation’s most recognizable and reputable equine sanctuaries, has recently lost one of their horses, Black Beauty. There is more to the story as just after her death an amazing outpouring of sadness was displayed by Black Beauty’s best friend, Duchess. Duchess had an extraordinary reaction to Black Beauty’s passing. Black Beauty was about 25-yearsold and had been at the Villa Chardonnay Equine Sanctuary for the past two years. Duchess came to VCES not long after Black Beauty and they became fast friends; always together, sharing food, forming a bond beyond that of a normal horse friendship; they were inseparable. Their names just happen to coincide with the famous book “Black Beauty” by Anna Sewell written in 1877, where Duchess is the doting mother of Black Beauty. Black Beauty was in good health and recently had a veterinary checkup. Unfortunately on the clear morning of January 22, she passed away from an unforeseen stroke. Black Beauty and Duchess shared a pasture and when she went down Duchess became alarmed and immediately went to her friend and

nudged her several times to get her to stand up. Black Beauty struggled to stay alive and with her friend, she got up once and then went down again. Monika Kerber, the founder of VCES, was there and comforted Black Beauty the best that she could. She could see the fear in Duchess’ eyes and the great sadness when she passed away. Duchess was still trying to get her up, and she never left her side. Then something extraordinary happened as she stood by Black Beauty – she started to cry. She had tears running down her face, something that has not been seen before. She had such a great love for her friend and is still very sad. “I couldn’t believe what I was seeing; I have never seen a horse cry before. At Villa we cater to the geriatric crowd, so we lose some horses every year. Most of them have friends who are sad when they are gone, but we have never seen a reaction like this before,” said, Kerber. Villa Chardonnay Equine Sanctuary focuses on providing a permanent home to slaughter-bound, elderly, neglected, and abused horses that are not able to be ridden or adopted. The sanctuary is considered their last chance for survival. Celebrating their tenth anniversary this year,

RIVERSIDE COUNTY – Being a responsible pet owner means taking various steps to ensure the health and well-being of a companion animal. Providing food and shelter are just some of the basics. Additionally, pet parents should regularly observe their pets and interact with them to ensure their pets are healthy. Petting and handling a pet is not only good bonding time between owner and pet, but also presents opportunities to examine the animal’s body. These informal examinations may alert to certain conditions, such as the presence of fleas or unusual growths, early on so that further action can be taken. Oftentimes pet owners discover

their dogs have unusual lumps under the skin. While these may be problematic tumors, the lumps may be lipomas, which are largely harmless. According to, an informative Web site for pet owners, lipomas are benign, relatively slowgrowing, fat-filled tumors that are quite common in dogs, especially as they get older. Lipomas are not cancerous, and they should be soft and easily manipulated beneath the dog’s skin. Lipomas can develop anywhere, but they’re usually found on the belly and chest of the dog. The exact cause of these fatty tumors is unknown, but it seems to be a part of aging in some canines. Discovering a lipoma can be dis-

concerting to dog owners. Feeling a large lump on a pet may prompt a visit to the veterinarian’s office. A veterinarian can often distinguish a lipoma from another more serious condition by simply feeling the lump. Otherwise, the vet may recommend some diagnostic tests, such as needle aspiration, where a specimen of cells is collected. These cells will be looked at under a microscope or a biopsy of the lipoma tissue may be taken. There is nothing a pet owner can do to prevent their dog from getting lipomas, but they can watch to make sure the lipoma does not grow too large or become uncomfortable for the dog. A lipoma that grows large enough to impede mobility or is bothersome to the dog, who may bite and lick at it, may need to be removed. Together with their vet, pet owners can make the determination as to what is best for the animal. Dogs that have one lipoma may be likely to develop more. Just because the lump looks and feels like others, it is best to have it checked by a vet as a precaution. Although rare, sometimes a lipoma can be malignant, and this is called a liposarcoma. These tumors don’t spread quickly to other areas of the body, but since lipomas in general seem to infiltrate muscle and other tissue in the body, they can be difficult to remove and recurrence is common. Pet ownership requires keeping abreast of pet health issues. Lumps on an animal may not be serious, but they are worthy of a check by a veterinarian.

Mike Rowan inducted into CBAADA Hall of Fame Former Chaparral AD among three so honored

Paul Bandong photos Athletic trainer John Rentar, Barbara Rowan, and Shelley Jackson joined Mike Rowan as he was inducted into the CBAADA Hall of Fame.

From left, Mike Rowan (Chaparral), Joe Vargas (Victor Valley) and Kevin Stipp (Rancho Verde) were inducted into the CBAADA Hall of Fame on Tuesday, Feb.18, 2014.

Paul Bandong Staff Writer On February 18, the Citrus Belt Area Athletic Directors Association (CBAADA) inducted three members into their Hall of Fame: Mike Rowan of Chaparral High School, Kevin Stipp of Rancho Verde High School, and Joe Vargas of Victor Valley High School. The CBAADA, which represents athletic directors from public and private high schools throughout Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, has inducted only 41 athletic directors into the Hall of Fame in its four-decade history. Keynote speaker Rob Wigod, Commissioner of the California Interscholastic Federation’s Southern Section, congratulated the CBAADA organization on its camaraderie, cooperation and common spirit. Wigod encouraged the attendees to continue to make the effort, maintain a tradition of excellence and to leave a legacy. He commended the three nominees on representing the organization and their profession with hard, work, dedication and professionalism. Darren Mott, Athletic Director at Murrieta Valley High School, introduced Rowan as an inductee. “When I first got the job, I turned to Mike Rowan for advice and di-

rection,” said Mott, “He has been a mentor, colleague, and friend over the many years. He taught me what it means to put kids first and how to deal with parents and coaches.” Rowan has been an educator for over 37 years and an athletic director for twenty years. He has coached football, basketball, tennis, soccer, and baseball. He was athletic director at Garden Grove High School for three years. He earned his BS in biology and P.E. from the University of Southern Utah and his Master’s in school administration from the University of LaVerne. He also has a Certificate of Athletic Administration from the state CIF and is a Certified NFHS/CIF Coaching Education instructor. Rowan started teaching at Pius X High School. He also taught at Garden Grove High School, Temecula Valley and Chaparral. Rowan was athletic director at Garden Grove for four years and has been AD at Chaparral since the school opened 17 years ago. During his tenure there, Chaparral’s success ranges from its first league championship in girls soccer the year the school opened to, more recently, a girls volleyball CIF championship, a state academic team champion, and a football CIF championship. Chaparral teams

have won over 50 league championships since the school opened. The school has also produced numerous individual CIF Champions as well as countless All-CIF, All-Valley, and All-League players. “My favorite part of being an athletic director was watching student-athletes grow and develop as they compete for their high school,” said Rowan, “ and then following them as they go on to compete at the next level.” Up until this year, Rowan was the only athletic director at Chaparral High since it opened seventeen years ago. “Opening a school and building a program from the ground up is an awesome experience!” exclaimed Rowan, “I got to be involved in the school’s facilities design, choosing a mascot and school colors, and being a witness to every Puma FIRST! It has been a special experience to contribute to CHS’ growth and development into one of the top high schools in the state both academically and athletically.” Rowan credited his wife of 36 years, Barbara; his “office wife” for ten years, athletics department secretary Shelley Jackson; his first hire, athletic trainer John Rentar, who has been with him twenty years; and Temecula Valley School District Superintendent Tim Rit-

ter, who was Chaparral Principal in 2002. “There was a lot of blood, sweat, and tears over the years,” said Rowan, “One of the best decisions I ever made was to join the CBAADA on the recommendation of Stan Ford (Hall of Fame AD from Temecula Valley). The organization epitomizes what athletics is all about.” Rowan spent five years as Awards Chairman for the CBAADA, President in 2007, and league liaison since then. Rowan expressed his appreciation to the athletic directors in the Southwestern League. “The Southwestern League is one of the toughest in the state when it comes to competition,” said Rowan, “My legacy is that Chaparral comes to compete, regardless of the sport. Chaparral is on the map today because of competition.”

Kevin Stipp, Ranch Verde, spent 28 years as an educator and ten as an athletic director. As a basketball coach, he earned seven league titles and three Coach of the Year awards. In 2007, he received the Norm McKenzie Award from the California State Athletic Director Association. Joe Vargas, a 1972 alumnus of Victor Valley High School, returned there to coach and teach for 34 of his 35 years in education. He coached baseball for fifteen years and was named Baseball Coach of the year five times. He was Victor Valley’s AD for 14 years. “I am honored, proud, and privileged to be part of the CBAADA Hall of Fame,” said Rowan. To comment on this story online, visit

Lifetime Achievement Gerry & Rose Wilson These two individuals started their story in August of 1953 when

they walked down the wedding aisle. They adopted a child and then gave birth to three more children within the next two and a half years. One of them was a financial advisor, the other, a former TV cooking show host. Family and work placed at the top of the list of their priorities. Neither one was ready to risk all their savings when one of their grown children suggested launching a new family business. Today they own 90 acres and sell over 30,000 cases of wine each year. Each weekend the winery welcomes more than 1,000 visitors. Their winery hosts multiple charity events each year that bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce named them 2010 Gold Business of the Year. This family enterprise started with a dream before it grew into the successful commercial entity it has become since the tasting room doors opened in 2000.

TVHS downs Claremont 2-0 in playoff opener

Lady Golden Bears advance to face #5 team in state Bree Kanov Special to the Valley News The Temecula Valley High School Lady Golden Bears varsity soccer team (20-3-3) ran all over the Claremont High School Wolfpack in the first round of CIF playoffs. Temecula Valley senior striker Darla Guajardo scored the first goal in the first period. After an injury scare for TVHS that delayed the game, striker Nicole Robertson scored what would have been the second goal for Temecula Valley.

Unfortunately, the point was recalled because of a technicality. One minute later, freshman Christine Maurer scored, giving Temecula a 2-0 lead going into the half. Claremont reached the inside of the goal one time, but it, too, was recalled on a penalty. TVHS is now on to the sweet sixteen round of the CIF playoffs and traveled February 26 to Manhattan Beach to face the #5 team in the state, Mira Costa Mustangs (21-3-3), who shut out Royal 2-0 to advance.

Boys basketball: Temecula Valley downs Simi Valley, 76-45

Golden Bears move on to second round of CIF playoffs Bree Kanov Special to the Valley News The Temecula Valley Golden Bears boys’ basketball team clawed their way into the second round of the Southern Section CIF playoffs Thursday night against the Simi Valley Pioneers. The Golden Bears started the first quarter strong and never looked back. Sophomore forward, and team point leader of the night, Riley Schaefer opened the first few minutes with a 3-pointer. The Pioneers looked to catch up and answered back with a 3-pointer of their own from guard, Brian Lowe. The attempt didn’t work too well with Temecula Valley dunks by point guard, Justin Simon and Riley Schaefer to close out the quarter with a lead of 24-6. TVHS sophomore guard Robert Phillips opened up the second quarter with a 3-pointer. Simi Valley, once again, attempted to play catch up with a 3-pointer sunk by guard, Joe Colliatie. The Golden Bears’ Justin Simon fired back with back-to-back dunks to close out the half. Temecula Valley ended the half on top of the Simi Valley Pioneers 44-13. Already ahead by quite a few points, TVHS’ guard Ryan Schaefer made his own 3-pointer to give the Bears even more of a lead. His brother Riley threw down a second dunk. A few

minutes later, Ryan made another 3-point basket, followed by guard, Anthony Colero with 18 seconds left in the third. The Golden Bears were once again on top of Simi Valley 70-29 as they headed into the fourth and final quarter. The Golden Bears allowed just 16 points in the final quarter for a final score of 76-45. When asked about moving on and whom they are going to play, Riley Schaefer said, “It was a good team win and no matter whom we play we’re ready.” TVHS moves on to the second round of the Southern Section playoffs and travels to face guard Jacob Short (15.8 ppg) and #14 Capistrano Valley who beat Summit 70-58.

TEMECULA – The Temecula United girls, 2013 Presidio League Champions, competed in the quarterfinals of the 2014 State Cup.   Temecula United’s only loss during State Cup came at the hands of the Costa Mesa Epic in double overtime 2-1.   Temecula United earned the right to be in the quarterfinals with a 2-1 double overtime win in the round of 16 against the Fullerton Rangers. Temecula United girls play a 4-3-3 scheme. Allyssa, Jena, Ryan, and Paige play the high pressure forwards. Their imaginative play and ability to stretch the opposition helped

create a dynamic attack. Madison, Hailey and Sarah played well as the transition team both on offense and defense.   Ciara, Hannah, Madison, Olivia and Amanda made up the flat back defense. They found success in shutting down the attack and maintaining a commanding presence in the defending-third throughout State Cup. Goalie Hailey had a spectacular tourney forcing four shut outs. Temecula United U13 girls were proud to represent their club and created many exciting moments in the tournament for their fans.

Vista Murrieta used 27 points from Jaelyn Brown to beat Highland 70-50 and advance into round two of the CIF Division 1AA playoffs.

Charles McKee Sports Writer   Vista Murrieta set the pace from the opening tip off and played their usual tough, aggressive, physical game of basketball all night long. Led by their two key sophomores Jaelyn Brown and Brittney Reed, the Broncos took control early and never looked back. Vista Murrieta got off to an early 20-11 lead over the Bulldogs and never let Highland get into their game. The Broncos had a 10 point lead by halftime and led

32-22 at the break. The Bulldogs could not break down the Bronco defense in the second half and Vista Murrieta would outscore Highland 28-21 in the final two frames. The 60-43 victory propels the Southwestern League Champions into round two of the CIF SS Division 1AA Girls Basketball Playoffs. Jaelyn Brown scored 27 points to lead the Bronco offensive effort. Brittney Reed who went down hard a couple of times and seemed to tweak her back and leg in the fourth quarter had 15 points.

On a team with taller teammates, senior captain Yuendi Guridi was the unlikely rebound leader for Vista Murrieta. She grabbed 11 boards, scored eight points and had seven assists. Senior Tatiana Navarro scored four points and Alexis Marshall, Alex Orozco and Victoria Chea each scored a basket in the contest. The Bulldogs’ senior point guard Ashley Kelsick scored 37 of Highland’s 43 points. Kelsick was the golden league’s leading scorer and averaged of 41 points per game this season.

Fatburger - Where you can enjoy an entire farm on a bun

Fatburger allows you to customize your flavor of shake. Reese’s is the featured flavor this month. Try banana milkshake customized to add chocalate or peanut butter.

Michelle Mears-Gerst Special to the Valley News


hen hunkering for a b u rg e r, a g o o d burger that is never frozen and freshly made, stop into Fatburger. This month Fatburger is promoting a Reese’s Peanut Butter Milkshake with a Thousand Island Fatburger. A thick, creamy peanut butter shake is not a common flavor and even harder to find a place that knows how to create a shake with a subtle peanut butter taste. This shake will quench your thirst and cool your taste buds. The Thousand Island Burger is made to order on a toasted bun with lettuce, tomato, melted cheese and topped with Thousand Island dressing for added zip.

Another popular sandwich is a Fatburger with bacon and eggs. It is described as having an entire farm on one bun. Any good, juicy burger has to have a side and at Fatburger you can choose from fresh onion rings, fat steak fries or skinny fries. The desire to use only the freshest ingredients to make quality food is what prompted Ray and Nargi Malik to bring Fatburger to Temecula.

The fries are cooked in 100 percent cholesterol-free oil served to you by friendly staff. Fatburger is not a fast food chain. Ray describes it as casual dining. “We customize your meal to order. You can request a burger to be made medium or well done,

County officials and medical experts encourage vaccination in wake of possible pertussis upswing

Alex Groves Staff Writer Riverside County officials are urging parents to get their young children vaccinated for pertussis after this year’s first confirmed death from the illness. The death marks the first time since 2010 that there’s been a pertussis-related fatality in the State of California. The 2-month-old infant who fell ill had not been vaccinated and his mother had not received a booster while pregnant, according to county health officials. Pertussis, commonly referred to as whooping cough, is an infec-

tious bacterial disease that causes individuals who contract it to cough uncontrollably. The disease is particularly dangerous for infants; 69 percent of children less than 1 year of age who contract the infection must be hospitalized. Barbara Cole, director of disease control at the Riverside County Department of Public Health, said that there were 10 confirmed cases of pertussis in the county as of Thursday, Feb. 13. That may not seem like much, but it could be an indication of a greater problem, according to officials at the California Department of Public Health. They say that monthly

reports indicate that pertussis cases are on the rise. Yearly cases of whooping cough have been on a downward trend since the epidemic of 2010, when there more than 9,000 reported cases and 10 deaths in the state. But the contagious infection is cyclical and it’s not unusual to see sudden peaks in the number of cases every 3-5 years, according to a report from The CDPH. That’s why individuals like Cole are encouraging parents to consult their pediatricians about vaccination schedules. “There’s a vaccine schedule for child immunization,” she said. “And usually, you’ll see children start their vaccine series at 2 months of age (before receiving additional vaccines every two months), so 2, 4, 6, so there’s a standard schedule for children.” Dr. Richard Rawson, D.O, a pediatrician for Temecula Medical Center said it may be hard for parents to determine whether their child has whooping cough because symptoms present themselves in a similar manner to the common cold. Rawson encouraged parents to look carefully at tell-tale signs and symptoms such as the duration of the cough a child is experiencing as well as the kinds of sounds a child makes after coughing. “Really the thing that distinguishes it (Pertussis) from your typical cold, your typical cough, your typical pneumonia is going to be that cough, cough, cough, cough, cough with that big whoop at the end,” Rawson said. “Sometimes in younger children, like infants, you won’t see that,” he said. “What they’ll do is they’ll either cough and gag or they will have what is called apnia, which is almost like a breath-holding spell and they’ll sometimes turn blue because they can’t catch that breath.” The pediatrician said another way to tell if a child has whooping cough is to determine whether they vomit after coughing for an extended period of time, as this could also be an indication that they are suffering

from the illness. However, Rawson said that whenever a child is sick, parents should always take that child to the doctor regardless of symptoms because doctors can make the best determinations for treatment and can most appropriately diagnose certain kinds of illnesses because of their training. The children’s specialist said that sometimes he meets parents who are reluctant to vaccinate their children because they are afraid of a possible connection between vaccines and autism. His advice to those individuals is to vaccinate anyway because

there is no evidence that one causes the other and that vaccines are the best method for reducing a person’s chances of contracting whooping cough. “To this day I have yet to see anything corroborating a link between vaccines and autism,” he said. “There’s just no good evidence to support that link, and so to all my pediatric patients I recommend that they do get vaccinated.” To comment on this story online, go to

INLAND EMPIRE – Every month Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez recognizes five people in the 67th Assembly District who have shown significant achievement or service to the community for her “Power to the People” awards. For the month of January, the following people were chosen. Debbie Delgado Menifee Middle School Debbie is a tireless volunteer who is actively involved in classrooms and the local PTSA. She helps out with the choir program and volunteers endless hours to help the students during concerts, activities, and fundraisers. She never expects anything in return and has a great attitude about it as well. Debbie also serves on the PTSA board and helps with their

gram coordinator for La Vista Residential Treatment center for women in 2010.

It is truly rewarding to see the light come back into a person’s eyes that had almost been put out permanently by the use of drugs and alcohol.”   Richard De La Cruz Menifee Richard is co-founder of Operation Silver Star (OSS), which is devoted to helping combat veterans in need. Richard and OSS recently assisted a Navy veteran who suf-

fers from PTSD in building a fence around his property in order to keep his service dog safe.

Home & Garden

KPBS gardening series to feature Valley Center farm for veterans Michael Crane Staff Writer When Karen and Colin Archipley first moved to Valley Center in 2005 they weren’t exactly what you would call farmers. Originally from Northern California, Karen made hats for a living and Colin was a U.S. Marine Sergeant with a passion for bikes and off-road photography. However, when Colin and his fellow marines were facing re-enlistment as the only viable way to support their families, the Archipley’s farm, dubbed Archi’s Acres, became far more than just a family farm. Since 2007, Archi’s Acres has been the home of the Veterans Sustainable Agriculture Training (VSAT) program, an “intensive six-week agriculture entrepreneur incubator,” according to their website. The program, which is open to the public as well as veterans, has been so successful in providing veterans with a well-rounded agricultural foundation that it will be featured in an upcoming episode of “A Growing Passion,” a gardening television series on KPBS. “We created VSAT as a way that my husband could stay connected with the people he’d served with, but also that we could help people to transition out, to have a viable income because agriculture and organic farming is a very viable career,” said Karen Archipley. “Since then we’ve just learned so much.”

With 16 students in each sixweek class, Archi’s Acres already boasts around 240 graduates, many of whom have gone on to start their own farms, pursued agricultural degrees, or pioneered their own products. Aside from the practical experience the trainees develop, the program also serves as an emotional support during the often tumultuous period of acclimating to life after the military. “They’re people who thought their world was shaken out of them and we actually help them to reinvent themselves basically,” said Archipley. “We see the miracles every day.” Most of the VSAT graduates are active duty service members, including many Wounded Warriors. During the course of the program, they come to the farm five days a week to work with their hands and be versed on a variety of subjects by guest lecturers ranging from insurance agents to trademark attorneys. “In six weeks, we go from seed to market, and then we also go from the concept of the business plan to the presentation of the business plan, and it’s everything in between,” said Archipley. “We handle business, economics, niche marketing — all the things that go with having a successful farm.” Archi’s Acres has recently partnered with the California State University system and their six-week program is now equivalent to 17 credits, or one year of college. The USDA also considers the program

as one-year farm ownership, which means graduates can immediately apply for farm service agency loans to build their own greenhouses. Nan Sterman, garden expert and host of “A Growing Passion,” knew about Archi’s Acres for several years and was excited to include it in the final episode of her second season, titled “Growing Dreams and Memories.” “Actually it was one of the reasons that I did this episode was that I wanted to feature their story,” said Sterman. “Archi’s Acres, these are people who have been through

really traumatic situations and are coming back and need to adjust to a civilian life and a completely different kind of life and lots of them don’t really know what to do. So this is an opportunity to get some new direction and refocus.” The half-hour episode airs Feb. 27 at 8:30 p.m. on KPBS. Also featured in the episode will be Sunshine Assisted Living, St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center, and Rady Children’s Hospital, all of which use gardening to help people deal with different challenges across Southern California.

Archi’s Acres’ primary product is basil, but they also grow kale, chard, bok choy, and red bell peppers. They grow using sustainable, organic, hydroponic techniques and sell their produce to Whole Foods, Jimbo’s, Frazier Farms, Windmill Farms, and the Ocean Beach Coop, according to Archipley.

Nine things to do to save time and money for the spring The lint trap should be cleaned out after every load. At least once per year, the dryer should be disassembled and the interior vacuumed with a long attachment. Also annually, the dryer’s entire venting system from the dryer to the outside must be cleaned out. A dryer vent brush will assist with this. 7. Schedule professional furnace and air conditioner duct cleaning. Clean furnace and air conditioner ducts help the air to flow more freely. Air duct cleaning every five

INLAND EMPIRE – There are nine money-saving tasks that homeowners can do during the winter that will prevent problems in the spring. These tips have been provided by®. 1. Perform pre-season maintenance of outdoor power equipment and garden tools. Inspect wear and damage on lawn mowers, pressure washers, string trimmers, edgers and other outdoor power and landscaping equipment. Review owner’s manuals, replace worn or damaged parts with new components and clean the equipment. Stock up on degreaser, filters, spark plugs and other essentials. 2. Dedicate a few hours per weekend to organizing closets, cabinets, basements, attics and other storage locations. The annual home chores dubbed “spring cleaning” doesn’t have to wait until spring. Avoid several organization projects in one weekend. Instead, tackle smaller organization projects over many weekends for greater efficiency. 3. Clean off refrigerator condenser coils.

“Dirty, dust-covered condenser coils require refrigerators to work harder to remove heat,” said Chris Hall, president and co-founder of “A long-handled bristle brush and a vacuum make it easy to clean off the coils.” 4. Stock up on water filters. “Refrigerator ice-maker and water dispenser filters should be replaced at least every six months, but depending on usage, homeowners may need to replace the filters more frequently,” said Hall. “Increased temperatures often bring more frequent use of ice makers and water dispensers.” 5. Check on emergency-prevention efforts. Replace the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and then test them. Check the expiration dates on first-aid kits and fire extinguishers and replace as needed. Review fire escape and other emergency plans. 6. Clean out dryer vents. “Lint may be building up to dangerous levels in your dryer’s venting system,” said Hall. “Dryer lint buildup restricts air flow and can result in a fire.”

8. Inspect home appliances for worn components and changes in performance. “Appliances often show warning signs before they have major problems,” said Hall. “Take the time to inspect them and replace parts as needed to keep them running efficiently. Pay attention to noise, the amount of time required to complete their jobs, leaking and

other performance changes.” 9. Prune trees and shrubs. “By mid to late winter, your trees and shrubs have been dormant for a significant period of time,” said Jeff Linderman, RepairClinic’s resident landscaping specialist. “They may also have winter-storm damage. Now is an ideal time for pruning to enable spring growth.”® is an online store featuring replacement parts for major household appliances, and outdoor equipment.
