Starbucks no more? The coffee house where everybody knows your name to relocate

Alex Groves Staff Writer The Starbucks located at 40695 Winchester Road is set to close its doors April 15 in order to move to a new location, but many longtime customers are upset about the move because they say the new location will be difficult to get to and will not have the same ambience as the current location. For more than a decade and a half, the Winchester Road franchise has been drawing in a steady group of customers who have taken advantage of its quiet atmosphere to prepare for work, study for exams, and hold bible studies.

Joe Naiman Valley News Correspondent In 1971 a seven-year-old motocross rider made his racing debut on the Lake Elsinore TT track. “We went up there and rolled around for last place,” he said. The novice knew that the other riders had started faster. “They were gone,” he said. The young rider thought that he was ahead of one racer he saw. Then he discovered that the image was matching his own moves. “I realized that I was racing my own shadow,” he said. The rider was Ricky Johnson, who would eventually win 64 na-

The construction of a 24 mile railway that will connect Perris to Riverside began Friday, Feb. 21 marking the final phase of a project that has been more than 25 years in the making. The line, which will have four new stations, will essentially extend the 91 line that runs from Riverside to Los Angeles. The project has a large number of supporters from members of the Riverside County Board of Supervisors to state senators and congressman. Many of these individuals have touted the project’s potential economic impact, saying it could bring approximately

4,000 jobs into the region during construction time. The rail line is also expected to alleviate traffic congestion between Perris and Riverside. Estimates say that more than 4,000 individuals will be taking the train rather than driving on the 60 and 215 freeways. But it’s taken a long time to bring the project to life because not everyone has been happy with having a train run through the area. Raising the necessary funding has taken time as well, according to John Standiford, deputy executive director at the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC). Standiford said that the project has been in the works for quite a

Sizzurp: What’s in that hideous ‘purple drank’? Debbie Ramsey Staff Writer It’s hard to imagine why anyone would want to find a thrill in drinking a concoction of prescriptionstrength cough syrup mixed with soda pop. However, this combination, known socially as “sizzurp” or “purple drank,” originally created in the 60s, has resurged in popularity due to its promotion by rap music artists. It is one of the trendy ways to get “high” used by the edgy, younger population.

Mustaine, a resident of Fallbrook, is known as a groundbreaker of the thrash metal music that became a genre in the early 1980’s when it exploded across the nation with its loud, aggressive fast tempo. At the “Symphony Interrupted” concert, the multi-platinum-selling guitar artist will perform Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” with the orchestra.

Hard News Owner of Akita that mauled boy arraigned, Lowe’s slapped with lawsuit

MURRIETA – A Murrieta man accused of standing by while his dog mauled a then 3-year-old boy pleaded not guilty on Thursday, Feb. 27 to a felony charge. Robert Steven Kahn, 62, was arrested last month after his 3-year-

old Akita inflicted severe injuries on a toddler at a Lowe’s Home Improvement store in Murrieta, according to police. Kahn was charged with being a negligent owner of an animal that caused great bodily injury. He

appeared with his attorney before Riverside County Superior Court Judge Timothy Freer, who scheduled a felony settlement conference in the case for March 18. Kahn remains free on a $5,000 bail. The dog was not euthanized because animal control officials with Animal Friends of the Valleys determined the owner was “irresponsible.” The dog eventually was turned over to an Akita rescue shelter in Romoland. According to Murrieta police Lt. Tony Conrad, shortly before noon on Dec. 28, 2013, Kahn was walking with his purebred Akita named Chester through the garden center at Lowe’s, in the 24700 block of Madison Avenue, when a boy wandered away from his father to stroke the 75-pound husky-like breed. Conrad said the dog was on a leash but lunged at the youngster and “bit him in the head, causing significant punctures and cuts to

his face.” “The father rushed to his son’s aid and spoke with the dog’s owner, (who) apologized and then left the garden center...ultimately leaving the area,” Conrad said. The toddler was rushed to nearby Inland Valley Medical Center, where he received 50 stitches for tears to his head, jaw, neck and around his right eye, according to Conrad, adding that because of the severity of the injuries, the child later was taken to Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego for further examination. He was released the following day. Detectives obtained surveillance video from Lowe’s and distributed it to the public, resulting in Kahn’s identification. On Friday, Feb. 21 a lawsuit was filed in Riverside County Superior Court by the San Diego-based firm Gomez Trial Attorneys. The complaint alleges the store

was responsible for the incident because it did not forbid Kahn from taking his dog inside the premises, which was captured on surveillance video. The complaint also contends store employees did not call 911 in the aftermath of the attack. The family of the now 4-year-old boy has sued the North Carolinabased home improvement store chain and the dog’s owner, seeking damages in excess of $25,000. According to the lieutenant, investigators learned of two additional attacks that occurred in October and November. “In those incidents, the dog showed aggression toward young children – 3 and 5 years,” Conrad said. “Injuries from those two incidents were less severe and did not require hospitalization.” Riverside County District Attorney’s Office was asked if charges may be filed in the other two alleged incidents, but there was no immediate response.

Woman accused of shooting, Trial begins for ex-con accused of killing man at Pechanga Resort killing Lake Elsinore man arraigned on murder charges According to the District Attor- wasn’t until July 19, 2012, that a MURRIETA – Jury selection MURRIETA – A Wildomar woman accused of gunning down her boyfriend during a confrontation at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula pleaded not guilty on Friday, Feb. 28 to murder and other charges. Maria Santos Vihnanek, 31, could face life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted of killing 49-year-old Keith Rodman of Los Angeles, who fathered her 6-month-old child. Along with the murder count, Vihnanek is charged with child endangerment and faces a special circumstance allegation of lying in wait, as well as gun and great bodily injury allegations. The defendant appeared before Riverside County Superior Court Judge Timothy Freer, who appointed her a public defender and set a felony settlement conference in the case for March 10. Vihnanek remains in custody

without bail at the Robert Presley Jail in Riverside. According to Riverside County sheriff’s investigators, deputies arrived on scene and found Rodman in the lobby of the resort in need of medical attention. He was transported to Temecula Valley Hospital where he ultimately succumbed to his injuries. Additionally, Vihnanek was located in a guest room at the resort suffering from non-life-threatening injuries. She was treated at a hospital and booked into jail. Further investigation revealed that the shooting occurred in a guest room and that the victim entered the lobby of the casino to seek emergency medical treatment immediately thereafter. The baby, who was not injured, was placed in the custody of county child protective services. A possible motive for the shooting was not cited.

got underway on Tuesday, March 4 for the murder trial of an ex-con accused of beating a homeless man to death with a rock during a confrontation at a Lake Elsinore transient camp. Jason Lee Schmidt, 37, could face 51 years to life in prison if convicted in the June 2012 slaying of 58-year-old Leopoldo Navarrete. Schmidt is charged with firstdegree murder and resisting arrest, as well as a sentence-enhancing weapon allegation. He also has a felony strike on his record. Riverside County Superior Court Judge Michael Rushton summoned prospective jurors to the Southwest Justice Center in Murrieta for screening as to their availability and qualifications. According to sheriff’s investigators, Schmidt and Navarrete were loosely associated through encounters at a homeless camp known as the “Olive Groves,” off of Adelfa Street and Grand Avenue in the community of Lakeland Village. In an interview with Riverside County sheriff’s detectives, the defendant allegedly admitted killing Navarrete after becoming enraged when he mentioned having molested one of his own grandchildren.

ney’s Office, relatives of the victim vehemently deny that he ever had inappropriate contact with a juvenile family member. According to a trial brief filed by Deputy District Attorney Burke Strunsky, Schmidt told a fellow cell mate that the killing was “spur of the moment” and regrettable. An occupant of the transient camp told investigators that she heard what sounded like a severe beating on the night of June 14, 2012, though she didn’t witness it. However, several other itinerants told authorities they encountered Schmidt in an agitated state that night, allegedly making self-incriminating statements, such as “first kill of the year.” The defendant tried unsuccessfully to torch Navarrete’s Toyota Camry, investigators allege. The victim was reported missing by family members within a day of his disappearance. However, it

According to sheriff’s officials, the defendant took off running but was quickly apprehended. According to court records, Schmidt has multiple prior felony convictions, including for drugdealing, burglary and attempted burglary. Schmidt is being held in lieu of $1 million bail at the Southwest Detention Center.

Breakdown talent show builds up support for cancer advocacy Andrea Henthorn Special to the Valley News The Great Oak High School Key Club hosted the second annual Breakdown talent competition on February 22 as part of a fundraising effort to support Relay for Life. Breakdown featured dancing and singing acts from Great Oak High School, Temecula Valley High School, and the greater Oceanside area. It was a collaborative event, meant to put aside rivalries and have a friendly competition while raising money for the American Cancer Society. Kay Fang, senior at Great Oak and event coordinator for Key Club, said the inspiration behind the event was to carry on the legacy of what began last year, and “the whole idea of helping others and helping to end cancer.” The two-act competition was judged by Mrs. Marshall, Spanish teacher at Great Oak; Mr. Weeg, English teacher at Great Oak; and Mr. and Mrs. Qualm, regional Key Club representatives. Marshall said, “It’s nice that everyone gets to show their talents.” The Grey Matter Club at Great Oak, which raises money for brain cancer research, also sold baked goods at the event. There was also food sold by Key Club, a Polaroid photo booth for guests before and during intermission, and Luminaria bags sold to commemorate those who have lost their lives to cancer. Performer Jhunclaire Ona is a senior at Great Oak and a member of the Zero to Hero hip-hop dance group which closed the second act. She directed Breakdown last year, but decided to volunteer backstage and perform one last time to commemorate her last year in high school. She said, “As a performer, it’s really good for us to help out in the community, and the fact that we can do what we love as well as help our community is great.” She says the motto for Zero to Hero is to grow as a dance community and events like Breakdown help with that.

Not all real estate agents are the same. If you decide to seek the help of an agent when selling or buying your home, you need some crucial information before you make any moves. AN AGENT CAN COST OR SAVE YOU THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS! Picking an agent is one of those critical issues that can cost or save you thousands of dollars. There are very SPECIFIC questions you should be asking to ensure that you get the BEST representation for your needs. Some agents prefer that you don’t ask these questions, because the knowledge you’ll gain from their honest answers will give you a very good idea about what outcome you can expect from using this agent. In REAL ESTATE, as in life, not all things are created equal. Hiring an agent should be like any hiring process, interview multiple agents to make sure you hire the right one!

Local STARBUCKS, from page A-1

The Starbucks on 40695 Winchester Road is set to close on April 15 to relocate to another location in the vicinity.

to determine whether it’s time to find a new go-to spot. For Deborah, the problem is getting in and out of the location. “It looks to me like there’s very little parking (in that lot),” she said. “There might be 20 to 25 parking spots total, so that’s a concern.” “I would not be able to make a left,” she said. “I would have to take the access road and continue out onto Ynez and go through the next light or two to make a U-turn and head back down onto Winchester.” Some customers meanwhile have been trying hard to keep the Starbucks from moving in the first place. Bill Kirkpatrick is one of those individuals. Kirkpatrick scheduled a rally Saturday, March 1, where he encouraged customers to grab a cup of coffee and bring some friends along. His said his hope was that high sale levels might indicate to higherups at the corporate level of Starbucks that the location was worth keeping. Unfortunately, the weekend’s rain kept the location from being much busier than it usually is, as many people opted to stay inside the comfort of their warm homes. Still, Kirkpatrick said he hasn’t given up on the idea of finding an alternative solution to moving the Starbucks to where the old Carl’s Jr. used to stand. He said he’s not opposed to seeing the Starbucks move

if it really must, but doesn’t like the idea of having it in that location. One of the primary reasons the new location doesn’t work for many customers, he said, is its proximity to a homeless encampment. “With the homeless hanging around it’s just not conducive to an environment for single women or families going in there,” said Kirkpatrick. “Or even to have my daughter go in there to study for a college exam just because of the alcohol and drugs and some of the things that go on over there.” Starbucks management has declined to comment on the franchises’ intended move. However, Kirkpatrick said he’s been in talks with higher-ups at Starbucks and has expressed the concerns that he and others have and they’ve suggested possible alternatives like opening up the Promenade Mall Starbucks an hour earlier to accommodate people’s schedules. Nothing is set in stone yet though and Kirkpatrick, Hughes and others are still waiting to see what happens to their coffee house of choice. They said they’ll still be working hard to save the Starbucks from moving over the coming weeks. “We’re just trying to start this small fire and turn it into a big fire so our voices can be heard,” Hughes said.

JOHNSON, from page A-1 On February 13 Johnson added another Hall of Fame honor, as the San Diego Hall of Champions inducted him into the Breitbard Hall of Fame during the annual Salute to the Champions banquet. “It just was an honor to be recognized by the people of San Diego,” said Johnson, who grew up in El Cajon and now lives in Orange County. “I’m very proud of San Diego, and to be acknowledged by the San Diego Hall of Champions means a lot to me.” The Lake Elsinore TT track closed shortly after Johnson’s debut there, but the experience of racing his own shadow taught Johnson a lesson. “If I can match the best of me I’m doing good,” he said. “No matter how fast you go, how slow you are, you’re always having to beat your own shadow.” The faster Johnson’s shadow went, the faster Johnson went, and Johnson adopted the mentality of racing against the best of himself. “If I do that then there’s a chance that I can be a real good competitor out there,” he said. Although the last-place finish led to a break from racing for a couple of years, he returned to competition at the Four Corners track in Ramona. “Once we went pretty much every weekend from then on we were at some motocross track,” he said. AMA Hall of Fame member Don Vesco lived in Murrieta during the last several years of his life but owned a Yamaha dealership in El Cajon during Johnson’s youth.

course to be built, it marks the first time there’s been a line extension for Metrolink in 20 years. That’s something Metrolink Spokesman Jeff Lustgarten said he’s excited about. “Exension of the Perris line has been a longstanding goal of our board,” said Lustgarten. “And it became a reality late last year once Riverside County Transportation Commission was able to get through all the necessary environmental clearances and whatnot.” Lustgarten said the train extension time table isn’t exact but that Metrolink and RCTC are seeking to get it done by the tail-end of 2015. He said the board isn’t worried the 91 will become too crowded as a result of the extension of the line. “It’s not a concern at this point,” he said. “We look at our schedules at least twice a year to see if there are adjustments that have to be made either with time or trains and at this time we’re not anticipating any significant impacts to the 91 line.”

AMA Hall of Fame rider Broc Glover is also from El Cajon. “It gave me every opportunity to do what I needed to do,” Johnson said of growing up in El Cajon. “San Diego has a great bunch of guys for us to look up to.” Ricky Johnson is unrelated to current stock car racer Jimmie Johnson, although Jimmie Johnson’s father was Ricky Johnson’s mechanic and Ricky Johnson changed Jimmie Johnson’s diapers in the 1970s. Ricky Johnson is also in Montgomery Middle School’s Hall of Fame. “I wasn’t exactly a very good student,” he said. He did receive “A” grades in Terry Love’s physical education class. “The one thing I could do was go fast, and Coach Love encouraged it,” Johnson said. “Coaches play a very special role in our lives.” Johnson attended Valhalla High School but did not graduate. He received his AMA pro license

when he was 16 and obtained his first national-level win at Carlsbad Raceway when he was 17. “San Diego was perfect for a guy who wanted to grow up to race motorcycles,” he said. Johnson himself became a father figure to La Mesa’s Edward Muncey, whose own father was killed during a 1981 hydroplane race. In 1982 Bill Muncey became the first motorsports racer to be inducted into the Breitbard Hall of Fame. Johnson is the second. “It’s a very motorsports-rich environment, but there’s just been so many other athletes as well,” Johnson said of being the first motocross racer inducted. “This means the world to me,” Johnson said of his induction. “This is a great honor to me.” Johnson now teaches driving skills to military personnel during desert training exercises.

number of years. The track that will compose part of the rail line was purchased in 1993 from what was then the Southern Pacific Railroad through the Measure A transportation sales tax program. The measure was approved by voters in 1988. But then, the purchase hasn’t been the only component in facilitating the project. While much of the original line from the Southern Pacific Railroad will be used in the train route, accommodations and changes will need to be made to the rail so that higher speed trains will be able to travel along it and that’s something that has required a substantial amount of additional funding, according to Standiford. “The sales tax measure that was approved was a 20 year measure, so not all of the money comes immediately,” said Standiford. “We also had significant opposition that we had to work through for part of that line, especially near UC Riverside; there was a lawsuit that delayed the project filed by residents in

that area.” Standiford was referring to litigation filed by friends of Riverside Hills. The organization sought to prevent the train line from being built by challenging the environmental impact report that was compiled prior to the start of the project. Those individuals eventually settled in a deal which would require RCTC to contribute funding to project betterments such as home soundproofing. It also required that the transportation commission purchase lands for animal habitat and recreational trail development. But perhaps the most important reason the project didn’t get underway sooner was that there wasn’t a demand for it, according to Standiford. “We probably didn’t have the population in 1993 that would have demanded it,” said Standiford. “But it was one of those things where you made the investment with the idea that growth would be coming in the future. There’s quite a few more people who live along the 215 corridor than there was in 1993 for example.” But now that the project is on

SYMPHONY, from page A-1 Seasons, as well as perform Bach’s classic “Air.” “This is a completely different kind of concept and experience that is basically being pioneered by this collaboration,” said KenDavid Masur, Grammy-nominated producer and associate conductor of the San Diego Symphony. The marriage of heavy metal and classical music at a San Diego Symphony performance, along with how Mustaine will be the featured soloist, is said to be an original event by more than one music-professional. “I think it’s a real first and it’s an absolute thrill to bring this artist to such a wonderful organization,” said Ann Spira Campbell, deputy

general director of the San Diego Opera. Masur said that usually the orchestra is just an accompaniment to the main act, but gave the Valley News a sneak peek at what ticket holders can expect. “We will perform the Roman Carnival overture by Berlioz to set [Mustaine] up as a soloist, and he will come out like all the other great soloists in the world come up on stage, and then we will perform Vivaldi’s Four Seasons,” he said. Mustaine will be playing a special modified electric guitar made by Dean Guitars. Masur said that in a concert hall instruments need little or no amplification, and will sound as they are. “I don’t have to be loud, I just have to sound good,” Mustaine said with a chuckle. Masur said he is excited to connect with Mustaine, and that they both love great music and aim to share their different perspectives in the program. “It was clear to me that [Mustaine] sees himself as a musician in the whole sense and actually it’s been also very humbling that he would like to perform with the symphony,” Masur said. So, how did it come about that Megadeth’s master guitarist would be performing notes from the romantic period? One day, when Mustaine and Dave Campbell met for the first

time, Mustaine shared with Campbell how he wanted to help bring the younger generation an appreciation of classical music. “I told Dave I was interested in classical music, and that I had always thought it would be cool to do Dave Mustaine’s interpretation of some of the classics,” Mustaine said. Dave Campbell then told Mustaine that his mother, Ann, was a former opera singer and head of the San Diego Opera, and arranged for the two to meet. “When I met Dave in person I saw the most talented, incredible human being – someone with 5 million Facebook followers who appeals to a younger generation,” Ann Campbell said. Next, she contacted the San Diego Symphony and explained who Mustaine was, what a role model he had become, and his motivation for performing classical music. “You have a real leader here – someone the younger generation looks up to as an edgy artist,” said Campbell. “To be a draw for the younger generation is too beautiful of a storm to pass up.” To experience the live translation of Dave Mustaine’s interpretation of some of the classics, go to www. sandiegosymphony.org for tickets and more information.

Long time Menifee resident, community supporter receives call to deploy to Afghanistan Robbie Motter Special to the Valley News On February 26, I was invited to attend a very special event which was held at the U.S. Bank in Sun City at 10 AM to honor Darci Castillejos who is being deployed to Bagram Army Air Base in Bagram, Afghanistan. Mike Castillejos is the Sun City U.S. Bank Manager and the husband of Darci. Both were presented with iPads by U.S. Bank executives John Giddism, Karen Racusin, Chris Moulder and L. Brian Butler. U.S. Bank has a fantastic Proud To Serve Program and currently U.S. Bank has approximately 2,000 employee veterans who work at U.S. Bank, including National Guard and Reserve Members, and have hired more than 1,100 veterans between 2012 and 2013. Karen Racusin, senior vice president regional manager, is in charge of a program that hires military officers and fast tracks these individuals into branch manager positions. John Giddis, district manager, said “Supporting the U.S. Military vets is the right thing to do, and U.S. Bank is proud of the support that they have been able to do with their Proud To Serve program.” Others present at the event were City of Menifee Councilman John Denver who also presented Darci with a gift from the City of Menifee, along with Linda Denver, Menifee Rotary president and

treasurer of the Menifee Arts Council; Dorothy Wolons, CEO of the Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce with her assistant Ebony Richards; and Shellie Stoval. “Darci, the City of Menifee is very proud of you, everyone that knows you will miss you,” said Denver. In 1994, Darci felt a desire to serve her country and enlisted in the United States Navy Reserve. In 2007, she was promoted to Chief Petty Officer, one of her proudest achievements. She is currently assigned to Navy Cargo Handling Battalion 14, Delta Company, as the senior enlisted leader for 31 sailors. Darci has served as chairwoman (twice) of the Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce; president of the Menifee Valley Community Cupboard; treasurer of the Menifee Action Group; and served on the General Plan Advisory Council. This past year Darci served as an ambassador for goodwill as Ms. Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce. This year Darci received the phone call reservists are always on the ready for, the call to active duty. On March 7, she will be deploying with 115 members of her battalion to provide logistics support to Special Operations Forces stationed at Bagram Army Air Base, in Bagram, Afghanistan.

Are all veterans equal? A guide to using your VA loan retirement benefits. Those who have suffered a service connected permanent disability of 10 percent or more may be eligible for disability income. The disabled vets also will have their VA Funding Fee waived. The problem many veterans have is that it may seem to take forever before they receive their benefits. Additionally, disabled vets may be eligible of some additional benefits from their local municipality, their state or the federal government.

John Occhi, Mike Mason Special to the Valley News Equal is such a definite word… similar to fair. I know when my girls were young, they would often complain comparing one’s treatment over the other whining, “That’s not fair.” To which I would remind them the (L.A.) County Fair wasn’t until September and they better be good if they wanted to go. Those little girls love the fair to this day. “Equal” is similar to “fair” in that nothing is ever really equal is it? Sure, a cup of sugar is equal to two half cups, but we’re talking about life, rules, and people’s interpretations of those rules. We’d like to think that all of our veterans are equal, especially when it comes to housing, with so many laws on the federal and state books regarding fair housing. Sure, all veterans have a VA Loan as one of their benefits of honorable service but the question is what does a veteran have to do to qualify for a VA Loan, besides put his life on the line for his country? To receive the coveted Certificate of Eligibility, a veteran must meet the time criteria. During war time, 90 days of continuous active duty is sufficient; peace time you can double that to 181 days; if a veteran served his time in either the National Guard or Reserves, he or she must serve for a full six years before becoming eligible. Should I stay or should I go? Military people who are on active duty serve under a contract with a very specific date of termination, or discharge date. In military jargon, this is an “ETS” date. If a military member is planning on leaving the military on their ETS and it’s within a year, they prob-

ably won’t be able to use their VA Benefit until they can prove income after discharge. Of course, reenlisting, or signing a new contract for several more years, will satisfy this need but they have to go ahead and do it before they can get their VA home loan. The other issue active duty service members have to deal with is their specialty pay. Many will receive extra money every month for combat, hazardous duty, jump pay or other special earnings that may end and not be a reliable source of steady income. Weekend warriors The men and women who serve in either the National Guard or Reserves typically serve one weekend a month and two weeks a year, for a period of six years. Of course, many in the last couple of decades have been activated and served during war time. Depending on how their activation is classified, if they served 90 continuous days they may be eligible for their Certificate of Eligibility. Retired or disabled Those who spent 20 or more years in the military are eligible for

Military personnel are always on the go In military units, there are always people coming and going. Service men and women who are nearing retirement may have difficulty proving adequate income to qualify for a home loan. The military will issue an awards letter documenting what the retirement pay will be, but this often does not come until shortly before the actual retirement. There are some lenders that will not even loan to a retired veteran until after they have received their first month’s retirement pay. When a service member has a permanent change of duty station (PCS in military jargon) they must first have official orders before they can be considered for a new VA home loan – no matter how certain they are that they are headed to a specific destination, they are in the military and can end up just about anywhere without any advance notice. Our veterans have certainly earned their benefits. The key is how to use them in the right way to get the most out of them. Call us today and get the information you need to make the right deci-

sion. The info is free, call now! (951) 296-8887. Questions regarding available inventory and/or other real estate matters please contact me, Mike@ GoTakeAction.com. Mike Mason,

Sounds of CCR roll into Pala for March 28 concert

Courtesy photo Band members of Creedence Clearwater Revisited include, from left, Kurt Griffey, John Tristao, Rock Hall of Fame original CCR members Stu Cook and Doug Clifford, and Steve Gunner.

Debbie Ramsey Staff Writer When the music erupts March 28 at Pala Casino Spa & Resort’s event center, hundreds will undoubtedly start tapping their feet and moving to the distinct rhythm of the songs

made wildly popular by Creedence Cleerwater Revival (CCR). CCR broke up in 1972 and original band members Doug “Cosmo” Clifford and Stu Cook and three other carefully selected musicians began recreating those sounds in 1995 through the Creedence Clear-

water Revisited tribute band. With a continually growing, three-generation fan base, they are celebrating their 20th anniversary. Clifford, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with Cook in 1993, explained how the original sound is replicated to perfection. “The foundation of rock and roll records is the rhythm section, that’s the foundation you build the house on; when you hear it, you say, ‘That’s Creedence’ and that’s because it’s me and Stu. We’ve been doing this a long time.” Doing it a long time means from the beginning of CCR. Clifford and Cook grew up in East Bay San Francisco with the Fogarty brothers. “We played together 10 years before we had a hit,” said Clifford. “We backed up Tom and it went from there. It was a long journey.” When asked if he thought the tribute band would ever soar to its current popularity, Clifford said, “Absolutely not.” “When we started this thing, we had no idea how it would go; Stu and I just wanted to stay under the radar, do some private shows, and stay out of trouble,” he explained. “Stu and I always get into trouble, whether it’s intentional or unintentional. From age 13 to present, we have had many lives apparently and

we still have a few left. We haven’t grown up yet!” Putting together the right artists to recreate the CCR sound was a careful and deliberate process. “Our mission was to find people that could not only play the songs, but understand what the music means to people; be respectful; be able to do it right; that was the criteria for us,” said Clifford. “We were able to do that.” Their first performances as Creedence Clearwater Revisited were in retail venues. “Our first couple of shows became big, public events; it was a smash and people went crazy,” he explained. “Now our horizons have been multiplied and we can do whatever we want.” Clifford said during the forming of the tribute band, he was frequently asked, “How can you do it without Fogarty?” “Actually, we can do it quite well without Fogarty,” he said. In describing the distinct and unpretentious earthiness of CCR’s music, Clifford likes the term “American roots rock and roll.” “It’s not southern rock, although we do some country songs; on the other side of the coin, it has a Blues flavor; it’s a melding of those two,” he said. “The music is well executed, well thought out, and very simplistic; that’s what you have to

work on.” Since CCR’s music is bold, distinct, and consistently full-throttle, when asked how that level of energy is achieved and sustained, Clifford said, “You want to play every note and show your stuff. This is a case where less is best, as long as it is done honestly and from the heart, but it always has a good beat. In addition, the social commentary in the songs seem to strike a heartfelt chord with fans. That’s why songs like “Proud Mary,” “Down On The Corner,” and “Have You Ever Seen The Rain” are wellknown to three generations. Clifford said his band “is looking forward to being at Pala” and can’t wait to have the crowd in front of them. The performance will be one of 70 to 75 concerts the band will play this year. “Quite a few years back, I protested the 100+ concerts a year because I was gone more than I was home,” he said. “I saw burnout coming.” Clifford and his wife of 46 years (and high school sweetheart) split their time between homes in Reno, Nevada and Arizona. “I’m a snowbird,” he said, with a chuckle.

The Movie Review: “Non-Stop” Robert T. Nickerson Special to the Valley News The heart of every mystery is the construction of the outcome. Some of the greatest detective stories, including Sherlock Holmes, will have people “outed” as the ones that did the dirty deed that seem so far from the most obvious choice that readers (or watchers if they’re observing a movie) will need to think about the clues that they were given with the detective and maybe even go back to see that the unassuming can suddenly become clear. There is never a crime where all the footprints can be erased. The villain will have to eventually drop something that can lead them to them. One of the greatest movie makers of all time, Alfred Hitchcock, loved making mysteries like North by Northwest and Rear Window that had a large cast of characters where anyone could be helping or hurting the hero. Jimmy Stewart spent the majority of the story in his room, as he was trying to determine whether his neighbor was a murderer only through evidence that he found from across apartments. Spencer Tracy went on a cross-country journey with a shadowy woman that may be the only one that can free him from status as a target from the FBI and bad guys. What both movies had in common was that they were built in such a manner that their outcomes were the only way things could have transpired. Non-Stop is the latest situation on this week with Murder Mystery Theater (or cinema in this case). Bill Marks (played by Liam Neeson) is an air marshal who is suffering from alcoholism, a divorce, and a fear of planes taking off. Yet despite all these reasons for him to quit his job, he’s en route on another non-stop flight between

New York and London. While over the Atlantic Ocean, Marks begins to receive text messages on his secure phone line stating that someone on the plane is going to die every twenty minutes unless $150 million is transferred to a specific bank account. He talks with the other air marshal to see if he is playing a joke on him. Through a series of altercations and deaths right at the twenty minute mark, the other passengers become convinced that Marks himself is hijacking the plane. Marks looks to the businesswomen who sat next to him on the plane (played by Julianne Moore), a phone app developer, a strung-out NYPD officer, and several other people as the one that might be the real killer. Placing a murderer on a crowded airplane is not a bad idea, and with a lot of the technological advantages smartphones play into the story along with in-flight entertainment systems giving information to other passengers, Non-Stop seems to have a lot of the elements necessary for a good thriller. In fact, I was on

the edge to see who had done it. So what’s wrong with the story? What prevents it from fully taking off is the hero. Liam Neeson plays his tough cop character that we’ve already seen in Taken, but it’s certainly enjoyable. But why make him an alcoholic? To make him likable? It’s not too hard to make a jerk character at least sympathetic as long as he’s relatable. As I said the mystery is a good one, but the third act also suffers from going too over the top in a crash sequence that looks unbelievably fake (it’s so computer generated that I almost thought I was watching a Pixar film) and only put in as an ending to satisfy action fans. It could have all ended in the air. I’ll give this three threatening text messages out of five. Non-Stop could have been a Hitchcock-like thriller if it had made a more interesting character and a slower third act, but I certainly was entertained. Robert T. Nickerson is a film critic. His work can be seen at mastermindfilmproductions.com.

A

bout 300 small aircraft flights take off or land each day just outside of the French Valley Café, where diners have a view of the runway while they enjoy an award-winning breakfast or dinner special such as Prime Rib and Baked Potato with all of the trimmings. The tucked-away café at 37600 Sky Canyon Rd. shares a building with Riverside County’s Economic Development Agency and is next to Riverside County District Supervisor Jeff Stone’s office. “It is unique,” said café owner Darci Castillejos, 53. “It’s hard to explain to people until they come. They expect a diner, but it’s a restaurant.” The décor inside is a casual, family-atmosphere where about a

dozen model-type airplanes hang from tubular pipes that are on the ceiling, of which further add to the aviation theme. The walls hold an assortment of framed airplane pictures and paintings, and a full bar is situated in a corner of the restaurant. Every table inside of the 2,800 square-feet restaurant has a view of the runway through the windows. “A lot of the airport café’s aren’t on the runway. They don’t have a

that the weekends are generally “packed.” “Our burgers and sandwiches are very popular,” she said. She said they have an F-4 Spicy Jalapeno Burger that is ordered frequently. Weekend nights also draw in crowds for the live music and entertainment. The restaurant accommodates up to 100 guests in its dining area, and up to an additional 40 people can enjoy eating outdoors. The patio is pet friendly, and an iron fence separates guests from the runway, while still offering an intimate setting for watching the planes. On Tuesdays kids eat free per paid-adult from 4 p.m. to closing time, and Castillejos said they also feature a kid’s movie on the television. The Tuesday children’s special is a new promotion aimed at bringing in customers who may not know about the café, she said. For years, the guests have mainly been pilots who fly in and out of the airport, and airport employees and those who work at the nearby courthouse, Castillejos said.

Before French Valley Café opened in 2000, Castillejos owned a restaurant in Menifee. She said that personnel from the Riverside Economic Development Agency, which manages the airport, approached her about applying for a grant and opening up a restaurant at the airport. She is very happy that she did, she said. But running a restaurant isn’t the only thing on Castillejos’ plate, as she also serves her country as a Chief Petty Officer in the Navy Reserves. “This is a veteran-owned business,” she proudly said. After joining the Navy at age 34, Castillejos said for the first time in 19 years she is set for deployment with a Navy Cargo Handling Battalion. She is leaving in early March to Afghanistan, where she will spend the next nine months helping with food service and supply. French Valley Café is located at 37600 Sky Canyon Rd. in Murrieta. For more information, visit frenchvalleycafe.org or call (951) 600-7396.

Darci Castillejos is the original owner of French Valley Café, which opened at the French Valley Airport in June 2000.

He said he eats at French Valley Café about four days each week with a group of airport employees who are regular customers. “The atmosphere is really nice, the food is always good and they make good drinks,” he said. Readers of the Inland Empire Magazine voted French Valley Café with the “Best Breakfast 2014” award, and Castillejos said it was a nice surprise. “ We w e r e n o m i n a t e d b y customers – it was pretty exciting,” she said. Breakfast meals start at about $6.00, and on Sundays a brunch is offered. “We have everything from Corned Beef Hash to Eggs Benedict, great omelets and

Lakeside advances to CIF finals with 57-37 win Coach Williams celebrates 200th win

Paul Bandong Staff Writer The home crowd waited in anticipation, counting down the clock, 5…4…3… Lakeside was in this exact spot last year – at home playing a semifinals game for a chance to play for the Division 3AA CIF title – only this year, they won! As the buzzer sounded, the crowd of students, family and fans rushed the floor in a roar of sound that filled the rafters of the gym. The Lakeside Lady Lancers (22-6, 10-0) had defeated the Corona del Mar (CdM) Sea Kings (21-8, 6-4) 57-37 and gave Coach Anthony Williams his 200th high school basketball victory and a spot in the Championship Game, the first in Lakeside’s nine-year history! Williams has been at Lakeside since 2008; he coached previously at Jurupa. “The girls worked hard and deserve this win,” shouted Williams over the noise. The Lancers faced a CdM front line that was 6’3”, 6’2” and 5’10”. “We were undersized,” said Williams, “but the girls played huge, they played with a lot of heart tonight! Heart -- that’s what got us here.” Victoria Sosa, a 5’7” Lakeside forward, pulled down nine rebounds in the first quarter alone, not allowing either of the CdM “bigs” to get to the boards. “They were really tough,” said Sosa who ended the night with fifteen rebounds. CdM had a 6-2 lead with three minutes left in the first quarter, but Lakeside went on a 15-0 run over the next eight minutes behind ag-

gressive defense and team hustle to lead 17-6. CdM’s 8-4 run made the halftime score 21-14. The Lancers had outrebounded the Sea Kings 27 to 15 in the first half and committed only two turnovers to six for their opponent. “Rebounds and turnovers were a big key,” said Corona del Mar coach Mark Decker, “That’s an experienced team and they did a good job packing it in.” Lakeside ended the night with 40 rebounds. CdM came out strong the second

half with forward Natalia Bruening scoring seven of her game high 19 points to lead her team on a 13-6 run to tie the game at 27 with a free throw. Lakeside guard Tavian Lasley hit one of her three three’s just before the end of the quarter to give the lead back to the Lancers. In the final period, Lakeside started with a 9-0 run to open up an eleven-point lead, but CdM scored on an inbounds play and point guard Kelly Tam hit her second three to bring her team within six

points. Lakeside scored the next nine points to open up a comfortable fifteen point lead with 2:45 left to play. Freshman post Emma Meriwether scored three times in the final two minutes to stretch the Lady Lancers’ lead; she had eight in the quarter. Lakeside outscored CdM 27-10 in the final period. “This was my best game ever!” said the 6’3” Meriwether, who had not played basketball before this season. “They [CdM] were tough,”

said Crawley, “but we all worked together as a team to get the win.” Soph guard Lasley led the Lakeside team with 13 points, including three buckets from beyond the arc. Crawley added 12. Meriwether, Sosa and Marissa Williams each contributed eight points. Kianna Williams and Megan Wood added four apiece. Marissa Williams also led in assists with ten. “They were really quick and had some good guards who could penetrate,” said Bruening about the Lakeside team, “they did a really good job on the offense and were able to produce.” In addition to her 19 points, Bruening pulled down 12 rebounds. This is the deepest into playoffs the Sea Kings have been in Decker’s eight years; last year they were eliminated in the second round. CdM won a CIF title in 1983. They graduate three seniors from this year’s team. “We’ll be back here,” said Bruening who is only a sophomore. The #2 Lakeside team advances to the Championship round to play top-seeded Santa Barbara (25-5, 6-2) who beat Yorba Linda 48-41. The Lady Dons are led by 5’9” sophomore power forward Amber Melgoza who scored forty of her team’s 58 points in the quarterfinals game against Irvine. Melgoza averages 21.2 points and 7.9 rebounds per game; she has scored thirty or more points three times this season. The Division 3AA CIF Southern Section-Ford Girls Basketball Championship game will be played March 7 or 8 at the Felix Events Center at Azusa Pacific University.

Chaparral High to host first annual Hit-A-Thon fundraiser, April 5 JP Raineri Multimedia Editor The Puma baseball program was tossing around ideas over the past couple of months in regards to bringing extra money into the program and it seems like they have come up with an idea that could be a home run. It’s no secret that all high school sports programs rely on a good amount of funding, which is usually provided by outside sponsors and donations. When Chaparral’s Assistant Varsity Coach Kevin Newby threw an option out to parents about something that he had done with his former teams in the San Diego area, the idea took off like a fastball. The idea involves players of all ages, a few baseballs, a bat and a field with fences. Much like your run of the mill jog-a-thon, the Puma’s will be raising money by

hosting a hit-a-thon. The event is being held on April 5 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is open to the public. Fifty-five Puma baseball players are currently trying to raise money for the hits they believe they will bring to the table. Donations can be made on the amount of hits, the distance of the hits, or can even be made on a per hit basis. As a part of the fun, there is also room for 100 other hitters to sign up and participate, no matter the age or skill level. Craig Johns, proud Puma parent and the man from the PSG that raised his hand to run the event said, “It seems like most non-profits are doing auctions and golf tournaments these days. We figured since we are a baseball program, let’s tie in some baseball. The exciting part of baseball has always been hitting and especially the long ball

home run.” The outer fields at Chaparral High will be transformed into a carnival-like atmosphere and San Diego’s famous DJ and event manager Steve Eicher (www.uniquemobilesounds.com) will play music and entertain the crowds all day. Jolly Jumps, a pitching speed booth, and a dunk tank are just some of the things that Johns says will be on hand from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for families to take part in. “We also wanted to include our whole community, so there is something for everyone at the event. The invite has been sent out to the local leagues like TYB, TVALL and Murrieta’s Pony League, as well as softball leagues like TVGSA, MVGSA and even the local travel ball clubs as well. Come have some fun, help our local kids and watch some incredible hitters,” added Johns.

Vista Murrieta girls lose to Brea Olinda, 63-59 Broncos eliminated from CIF SS Division 1A basketball playoffs Charles Mckee Sports Writer Vista Murrieta started the game like they did for most of the season…slowly. The talented Broncos have been a second half team most of this season and this game was no exception. Vista Murrieta fell behind 20-12 in the first period and that hole proved to be just too steep for the Broncos to climb out of this time. The Broncos closed the gap to 36-27 as the half ended, and even rallied from a 31-44 deficit to tie the game at 53 apiece late in the fourth quarter. The Broncos’ surge was stopped by the Wildcats as Shaylissa Jarrett scored four unanswered points to take the lead and Brea Olinda pulled away and took the quarterfinal game 63-59. Jarrett ended the night with 27 points. Relli Richardson added 20. “I thought Brea made some really big shots last night and we did not,” said Bronco Coach Chris Jones. “When you are in the late rounds of the playoffs there is generally little room for error and we just didn’t shoot well enough or make good enough decisions down the stretch.” Missed shots and lay-ups and turnovers proved to be

Brea Olinda, Led by Shaylissa Jarrett beat Vista Murrieta 63-59. The loss eliminates the Broncos from the CIF Division 1AA playoffs. Brittney Reed (32) scored 28 points and grabbed 13 rebounds for the Broncos, Brea Olinda ended Vista Murrieta’s season by beating them David Canales photos 63-59.

their undoing. The Broncos were led by Brittney Reed who scored 28 points. Alexis Marshall scored 11 points while Jaelyn Brown was held to nine. Playmaker Yuendie Guridi ended her high school career with seven points, four assists and two steals. The Southwestern League champions will go home and look forward to next season. The Broncos have four starters returning next year and should be right back in

the CIF playoffs again. “We have had two good years in a row,” said Jones. “We had backto-back league championships while going 50-14 overall.” Watch for the Broncos to be even better in 2015. Brea Olinda’s Sierra Bononi and Vista Murrieta Tatiana Navarro set the tone as they battle for a loose ball.

Sports Wolfpack advances to sweet sixteen Boys basketball: CIF with 71-52 win over San Clemente Southern Section Bench, free throws, defense credited with win playoff update Paul Bandong Staff Writer “Our bench stepped up big time for us,” said Wolfpack coach Shannon Maurice whose Great Oak team advanced into the Sweet Sixteen round with a 71-52 victory over the San Clemente Tritons. The Tritons were undefeated in South Coast League play and 19-8 overall coming into the second round game of the CIF SS-Ford Division 1AA Championships, presented by Farmers. “Great Oak was very aggressive in the second half,” said Tritons’ coach Lacey Burns, “They work hard, they’re well-coached and they have some nice basketball players.” Early foul trouble kept two of Great Oak’s starters – Roya Rustamzada and Mikayla Williams -- on the bench for much of the first half. Rustamzada only saw four and a half minutes of play in the opening two periods. “It’s frustrating,” said Rustamzada, “but our bench really pulled us through.” The Tritons drew first blood with a three-pointer by power forward Jessica DeGree. DeGree averages 23.3 points per game and

had scored 50 points in the 98-67 game against Aliso Niguel two weeks ago. DeGree ended the night with 18. Rustamzada took the lead back for the Wolfpack with two free throws and an offensive putback, but a Triton free throw tied the game seconds later. Elizabeth Tuccinardi’s three sparked a Wolpack 10-0 run to lead at the end of the first period, 14-8, a lead they would not relinquish the rest of the game. The Tritons fought back with a 17-11 second quarter. Their effort brought the game to within one point 24-23, but a Cheldon Alcantara jump shot and an Abby Welch free throw put the Wolfpack up 27-24 at halftime. Both teams combined for 39 free throw attempts in the first half in the high-paced foul-laden game. Great Oak hit on 11-of16, San Clemente on 13-of-23. Degree was held to two baskets, but hit seven free throws to lead all scorers with 11 points in the half. “We pride ourselves on free throws,” said Maurice. “Free throws and defense win games.” Rustamzada and Williams started

the third quarter for the Wolfpack and made up for lost time, scoring eighteen combined points in the third quarter. “We have great chemistry together,” said Rustamzada who assisted on three of Williams’ field goals in the quarter. “She can finish on any pass I give her. She makes me look good.” The 20-14 quarter ended with back-toback blocks by Rustamzada and Tuccinardi. Alcantara opened up the final period with a fast-break lay-up putting the Wolfpack up by ten. They ended the game with a 19-point win. Williams tallied 23 points; Rustamzada had 19; Alcantara contributed 11. Maurice cited the off-the-bench play of Deja Burnside and Samantha Gonzales (8 points, six rebounds, three steals, two blocks) as being critical to the victory. Great Oak (22-3) will face #5 Bishop Amat Lancers (227) in the Sweet Sixteen round. Bishop Amat rallied from a 3125 deficit to win 44-33 over Arcadia.

CIF-SS girls basketball playoffs: Wolfpack devours Lancers, 50-45 Advance to semifinals against #1 seed Charles Mckee Special to the Valley News The Wolfpack defense stopped #5-ranked Bishop Amat’s prolific offense in the third and fourth periods of Saturday night’s CIF Southern Sections Girls Basketball Quarterfinal game. They now advance to the Semifinal game on Tuesday, March 4. Great Oak shut down the Lancers’ attack and held them scoreless for nearly 11 minutes in the second half to take control of the game. Great Oak led Bishop Amat by seven points at the half but the Lancers came roaring back in the third period to take a 36-33 lead. That’s when the Wolfpack defense kicked in. With 3:08 left in the period, the Lancers could not find the basket. Great Oak held them

scoreless until only 22 seconds remained in the game. By then it was all over. The Wolfpack was led by junior Mikayla Williams who scored 21 points against the Lancers. Senior Roya Rustamzada added 17 points for Great Oak and sophomore playmaker Cheldon Alcantara guided the Wolfpack offense. Bishop Amat senior guard Paulina Santana led the Lancers in scoring with 22 points. Seniors Dagmar Ramirez and Janae Chamois finished with nine points apiece against the Wolfpack. The victory sends the Wolfpack into the CIF Southern Section-Ford Division 1A Semifinal Playoff game -- Final Four --for the first time in school history. This was Great Oak’s fourth trip to the quarterfinals. They played in three

successive games in 2007, 2008 and 2009 only to be stopped short. Great Oak will be at home for the Semifinal Playoff game and will face Bonita High School. The Bearcats are the top seed in the tournament and the reigning Hacienda league champions. They have a record of 27-2 this season and crushed M.L. King 55-32 last night. The Wolfpack will have to find a way to stop seniors Nikki Wheatley and Kandyce Smith. Point guard Wheatley, who is the reigning player of the year for her area, scored 29 in the second round win over Rancho Cucamonga. Underdog Great Oak fans know that whatever the odds, the Wolfpack is toughest when their backs are to the wall and especially playing at home in the Wolf’s Den.

HS boys basketball: Golden Bears roar into final four TVHS defeats Edison 68-63 in CIF-SS Div 1A Quarterfinals Bree Kanov Special to the Valley News The Temecula Valley Golden Bears Boys Basketball team (264, 10-0) travelled to Huntington Beach and made school history Friday night with a 68-63 win over the #6-ranked Edison High School Chargers (23-6, 8-2), advancing farther into the postseason than any previous Golden Bears basketball team. This year’s team set other firsts: most wins in a season and first undefeated league season. TVHS guard Justin Simon was held to nine points in the first half, but exploded for 21 in the second half to lead the Golden Bears to their first Final Four appearance. The game was scoreless for long minutes before Temecula Valley forward Riley Schaefer scored the first two points and then followed with a three-pointer. The Golden Bears trailed by one going into the second period.

Simon opened the second quarter by nailing a dunk followed by a dunk by guard Riley Schaefer. Edison, a three-point shooting team, matched the rainy weather outside by raining eight in the first half. Point guard Jake Haar dropped three in each quarter. Edison led 32-28 at halftime. Edison led 59-57 with 4:07 left to play when Edison guard AJ Garrity left the game with an ankle injury. The Golden Bears clawed back with seven unanswered points. Simon drove for a lay-up to tie the game. Zavier’s putback put TV ahead. Simon’s steal and dunk just under the two-minute mark gave TVHS a 63-59 lead. Riley Schafer scored on a lay-up, but Edison’s Brae Ivey hit a three to put the Chargers within two, 65-63 with forty seconds left. A Simon free throw made the score 66-63; Schaefer added the final two free throws for the win. Edison finished with thirteen three’s on the night. Haar accounted

Sports Nighthawks knocked off by Knights, 64-54 MVHS exits CIF-SS Div2AA playoffs in quarterfinals

Tyler Bilton (22) led the Nighthawks in scoring with 16 points but it wasn’t enough as Murrieta Valley fell to visiting Foothill-Santa Ana 64-54 in their CIF Division2AA Quarterfinal match up.

points. The outcome was still up for grabs with the score tied 50-50 with 2:45 left in the game. Jacob Dean’s fastbreak lay-up and a steal coastto-coast dunk by Patton forced a Nighthawk timeout as the Knights went up 54-50. The Nighthawks were outscored 24-11 in the final period with Patton accounting for ten of those points. “We’ve been begging for him to shoot since his sophomore year,” said Van Cleave, “Our coaching staff and players were encouraging him to just keep going and he played a great game.” Patton shot 76% from the floor, ending the night with 32 points on 16 of 21 shooting. “This was by far my career high,” said Patton, “ I usually take just seven shots per game.” His previous high this season was 17 points; he averaged 12.6 points per game. “He is the best post player we’ve seen all season,” said Tarabilda, “as hard as we played, it was tough to stop that guy.”

Dean added 12 points and Riley O’Hern contributed 11 to the Knights’ total. The Knights shot 10-of-14 from the free throw line, nine in the final period. “That’s a great win for our program,” said Van Cleave. “We’ve got all kinds of respect for this team. Coach [Tarabilda] is one of the best coaches in Southern California.” Tyler Bilton led the Nighthawk scoring with 16; Kevin Padlo had 12; Jordan Williams added ten. The Nighthawks were 12of-20 from the charity stripe. The team ended the season 19-11. “It was a good season for our program,” said Tarabilda, “and created a lot of great memories for our seniors.” Murrieta Valley graduates six seniors from this year’s team: Padlo, Lenhart, Thomas Alexandre, Bilton, Jordan Williams, and Reid Bohanan.

Foothill’s Eric Patton (44) took charge scoring 32 points for the Knights as they came to town and eliminated Murrieta Valley from the playoffs.

Paul Bandong Staff Writer The sound was deafening as the student sections of both schools competed as hard as the players on the floor. It was the epitome of a playoff game with three ties and five lead changes. The Murrieta Valley Nighthawks were eliminated 64-54 in the quarterfinals round of CIF playoffs by the Foothill Knights. Junior post player Eric Patton scored half of the Knights’ points. This was Murrieta Valley’s third trip to CIF quarterfinals in the last three years.

The Nighthawks came out hot hitting their first three baskets from beyond the arc by Mitchell Lenhart, Jacob Forte and Tyler Bilton. Murrieta Valley had a 16-14 lead at the end of the first period. The Knights made some defensive adjustments and held Murrieta Valley to one field goal in the second quarter, outscoring the Nighthawks 17-6 to go into the halftime break ahead 31-22. “Once we started to play defense the way we’re taught to play – see man and ball, help and recover – we’re awesome,” said Foothill Coach Rusty Van Cleave. Seven first-half Nighthawk turn-

overs resulted in five Knight scores. The Nighthawks enjoyed a three to ten foul advantage, but only converted on 5-of-11; the Knights had no free throw attempts. Patton scored twelve points in the second quarter run and 16 total in the half. The Nighthawks came roaring back with a 21-9 third quarter led by Tyler Bilton’s ten points. “We talked about shot selection and not turning the ball over,” said Coach Steve Tarabilda, “and that made a difference in the third quarter, but we were unable to sustain it.” The Nighthawks led 43-40 at the end of the third. Patton scored six of the Knights’ nine

Health Seven tips to overcome life’s toughest moments INLAND EMPIRE – Motivational author and speaker, Shawn Anderson, has interviewed hundreds of people who have experienced tragedy, failure and setback. He’s also been witness to many who have walked through their toughest moment only to make it to the other side with an increased passion and purpose for living. “It’s inevitable that at one time or another life will punch us hard in the gut; no one is immune to experiencing tragedy or failure,” said Anderson. “But when it’s our turn to feel life’s stomach blow, how will we handle it? Will we ‘go the extra mile’ and passionately keep on living, or will we just give up and go through the motions?” Anderson has learned that extra-mile people who transition

positively through life’s toughest moments practice at least one of these seven regrouping strategies. 1. They don’t quit on life. “Tragedy might have happened, huge mistakes might have been made, but the world continues. People who have walked successfully over life’s hot-coal moments always keep going. They never quit living,” Anderson shares. 2. They live day-by-day. “It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the ‘What am I going to do now?’ feeling, but extra-mile people focus on the now. They don’t let thoughts of how they’re going to deal with tomorrow defeat them,” Anderson says.

3. They find support. “By forging relationships with positive, move-forward type people, survivors trigger positive energy to flow back into their lives,” Anderson points out. 4. They get involved again. “Extra-mile people transcend life’s tragedies by not choosing isolation when life knocks them down,” Anderson shares. “It’s easy to want to hide in a cave after something bad happens, but the longer we stay in the cave, the more challenging it is to ever leave it.” 5. They remain optimistic. “Extra-mile people support themselves with their own words and actions. They don’t let negative self-talk rule their brains, and they make sure not to surrender to negative, self-defeating emotions,” Anderson says.

6. They trust their faith and look for a higher purpose in their loss. “Extra-mile people believe that there is a stronger power at work in the world. Faith in a higher power...and yourself...works miracles in overcoming bad events,” Anderson quotes. 7. They seek to add value to the world. “People who have weathered a life storm recognize the opportunity to re-evaluate their own contribution to the world. They use their event not as a forever defeat, but rather as an igniting spark to do something meaningful,” Anderson says. The author of six motivational books, Anderson is not only committed to support others in overcoming life’s toughest moments, he

is also a leading voice on “going the extra mile” in order to maximize potential and contribution. Last year, his Extra Mile America organization led 444 cities to declare Nov. 1, 2013 as “Extra Mile Day” – a day recognizing the capacity we each have to create positive change in ourselves, families, organizations and communities when we “go the extra mile.” “When something bad happens, we have the choice to either throw our hands in the air and give up or ‘go the extra mile’ and keep giving life our best effort. When we achieve that extra-mile distinction, we change our destiny.” Shawn Anderson is a six-time author, keynote speaker and motivational success coach.

Water is essential to human health INLAND EMPIRE – Many adults have had the virtues of drinking enough water extolled on them since childhood. Though recommendations as to how much water a person should drink each day have fluctuated over the years, it’s still safe to say that drinking a significant amount of water every day is essential for your health. Water keeps the body healthy in a number of ways. But the body loses water in a number of ways as well, each of which is part of normal human function. For instance, a body loses water when a person breathes, sweats, urinates or has a bowel movement. The body must replace this lost fluid in order to stay healthy and avoid dehydration. In addition to fending off dehydration, water helps the body flush out wastes and maintain a healthy body temperature while reducing the risk of developing kidney stones or becoming constipated. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, water also helps lubricate and cushion joints and protects the spinal cord

Star

and other sensitive tissues. The body needs water every day, but there are certain instances when the body will likely need more water than usual. If you spend ample time in especially hot climates, your body will need more water, just as it might during periods of physical activity. In addition, your body will need more water when suffering from certain ailments or conditions, including fever, diarrhea or vomiting. It’s best to consult a physician if you suspect you aren’t getting enough fluids, but there are also some indicators men and women can notice on their own. One such indicator is the color of your urine, which will be clear or pale yellow if your body is getting enough fluids. Urine that is dark yellow indicates the body needs more water. Constipation or hard bowel movements may also be the result of a body that isn’t getting enough fluids. While it’s true there is such a thing as too much water, it is rare that a person drinks too much water. Endurance athletes are most susceptible if they only drink wa-

ter during competitions. That’s because consuming too much water will dilute the amount of sodium in the body, creating an imbalance that can cause confusion, seizures and possibly even coma. That’s why many endurance athletes drink a sports drink that contains sodium, sugar and electrolytes during competitions. But even athletes who will be competing or exercising for more than an hour might want to choose a sports drink instead of just water to protect themselves and avoid an imbalance. Many people find they don’t drink enough water by accident. One way to combat that is to bring a bottle of water with you wherever you go. Another way is to drink water throughout the day at your office, which also gives you an opportunity to get up and stretch your legs over the course of the day. If you find water especially bland, add a slice of lemon or lime to give it more flavor. Drinking a sufficient amount of water each day helps the body function properly and fight off a host of ailments.

Sizzurp: What’s in that hideous ‘purple drank’? population, since it has been greatly glamorized by music artists in songs and videos. According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, it is estimated that one in 10 teens uses cough syrup or cold medicine in some form to get “high.”

Debbie Ramsey Staff Writer It’s hard to imagine why anyone would want to find a thrill in drinking a concoction of prescriptionstrength cough syrup mixed with soda pop. However, this combination, known socially as “sizzurp” or “purple drank,” originally created in the 60s, has resurged in popularity due to its promotion by rap music artists. It is one of the trendy ways to get “high” used by the edgy, younger population. Containing codeine and promethazine, the cough syrup is used in doses much higher than medically recommended in the drink and is mixed with a high-caffeine soda such as Mountain Dew or Sprite. By throwing a piece of Jolly Rancher hard candy into the liquid for extra sweetness, the concoction takes on the taste of candy. The mixture produces mild euphoric side effects along with motor-skill impairment, lethargy, drowsiness, and a feeling of disassociation from the rest of one’s body. ‘Purple drank’ has soared in popularity, authorities say, thanks to the hip-hop community in Texas. Users have said the sweet taste stays on the tongue for hours and it is often consumed along with alcohol and/ or drugs. Numerous rap music artists favor the mind-altering drink and some have been hospitalized after ingesting it. Doctors say the two drugs in the cough syrup have different roles. The codeine acts as a pain reliever and respiratory depressant and the promethazine is a depressant of the central nervous system, with sedative effects. Taken in the correct prescribe dose by itself, the cough syrup is safe for its intended patient, but in excess can cause a person to stop breathing. Adding alcohol and other drugs to the mix present even more problems

and can create a lethal cocktail that leads to seizures and cardiac complications. In the 60s, the original version of the drink emerged in Houston, Texas with Blues artists taking Robitussin cough syrup and cutting it with beer. Wine coolers were also used as a mixer with the cough syrup. It wasn’t until the 80s that the soda and Jolly Ranchers candies came into the concoction. The Jolly Ranchers were fancied as an add-in because they added a spectrum of color as well. A rap music artist using the moniker “DJ Screw” included references to the purple drink in his music and soon the message began to spread. Some sources said the drink led to the rapper’s early death. However, more rap artists were willing to carry the popularity of the drink forward and several of those have died at young ages. As with many drugs that contain an opiate, the drink can lead to addiction and lead to symptoms of withdrawal. Concern remains high over the use of this drink in the young

MURRIETA – A group of Southwest Riverside County dentists have been visiting Murrieta Valley Unified School District elementary schools with tongue depressors and flashlights in hand. On Monday, Feb. 24 the Rotary Club of Murrieta honored those dentists and school nurses who made this project possible. The longest running service project of the club, the annual dental assessment in Murrieta elementary schools, was started by Dr. Jim Yanoschik, a past president and founding member of the Murrieta club in the early 1990s. Children in the first, third and fifth grades line up for examinations each year with the volunteer dentists recording what needs to be done, if anything. In addition

to the grade school students, preschoolers are being examined, a task that Yanoschik himself takes on at 16 or 17 locations. District Nurse Michelle Fackelman has been involved with scheduling the dentists for the past 18 years and has seen its growth. The Rotary Club of Murrieta was chartered on April 28, 1992. The club is involved in many community and international projects, in cooperation with Rotary International. Club meetings are held Mondays (excepting holidays) at noon at Richie’s Diner, 40651 Murrieta Hot Springs Road, in Murrieta. For information regarding the club or membership visit www. murrietarotary.org or call President Patsy Orr at (951) 693-5589.

Honors students get research published in 2013 ‘Building Bridges’ Emily McKellar Special to the Valley News

search at the UCI conference must first receive approval from Ozolins or his colleague, Christina Yamanaka. “The key thing we look for is: are they contributing to the scholarship of the discipline?” said Ozolins. “They’re not just reporting what they find, but being innovative and offering something new.” Stebbings, a neuroscience major, stepped out of her comfort zone. Her research was a multi-factorial study and analysis of why people choose to engage in taboo behavior. Stebbings said it took her an entire semester to complete her research paper. She worked on the project every single day. Later, she would have to sum that work up in fewer than 300 words for Building Bridges. “I’m honored and happy, even if it were only five words” she said. “I’m happy that the information itself is published.” Warren, MSJC’s Student Trustee, said her research become very personal. After taking a history class on the Vietnam War, she wanted to know how Vietnamese women and children were affected. What began as an extra credit assignment steadily grew into a research paper fit for publication. “The more research that I did, the more deeply I understood their

Mt. San Jacinto College honors students who participated in last year’s undergraduate research conference at the University of California, Irvine, were recently published in Building Bridges. Building Bridges is a collection of selected abstracts from research presented during the 13th annual Honors Transfer Council of California Undergraduate Student Research Conference held in March 2013. MSJC students Nik Warren and Sarah Stebbings were published, as well as Clarice Gerbl and Kira Merritt, MSJC alum who recently transferred to four-year universities. In order to get published, each of them had to condense their research into a 250-word abstract and submit it to the book’s editor Tim Adell, an English instructor at Victor Valley College, for consideration. The publication has featured MSJC students almost every year. “We know our students are on par with everyone else, but it’s good for them to get that external affirmation,” said Erik Ozolins, codirector of the Honors Enrichment Program.

struggles, and the more my heart went out to the subjects of my research,” said Warren, a public health major. Gerbl, who is currently studying exercise and sports science at Lubbock Christian University in Texas, also conducted research that hit close to home. After working at her family’s mortuary in San Jacinto, she noticed how culture desensitizes people to the reality of death. “Having dealt with so many different types of grief expression as a professional in the business, I wanted to know more about what was happening in the mind of an individual who is grieving,” she said. Both Ozolins and Dr. Nick Reeves, an associate professor of

biological science and Stebbing’s mentor, recognize how the UCI conference and Building Bridges extends students to their full potential. “It’s what we get into teaching for, to see students achieve things they thought they couldn’t,” said Reeves. The opportunity to present or volunteer for this year’s honors

conference in April will be available until the end of this month. If selected, students may also submit their research to Building Bridges. Interested students may contact Ozolins at eozolins@msjc.edu. Building Bridges 2013 can be purchased on Amazon for $4.75. Proceeds go to the Honors Transfer Council of California.

Self-employed? Don’t forget these tax-filing tips Jason Alderman Special to the Valley News Calculating income taxes is a royal pain, even when your situation is uncomplicated enough that you can file a 1040EZ Form. And if you’re self-employed, be prepared for extra layers of complexity. Not only must you file an annual return with numerous additional forms and schedules, you’re also responsible for paying quarterly estimated taxes, which can mean having to write a pretty hefty check while waiting for your clients to pay their overdue bills. Add in that you’re also responsible for funding your own health insurance and retirement and you

may start to miss having an employer manage a portion of your financial affairs. (Although many people go into business for themselves precisely to call their own shots.) Here are a few things to remember when calculating your 2013 taxes. First, some potentially good news for taxpayers who claim a home office deduction: You now may choose between the traditional method of calculating the business use of your home (which involves numerous calculations, filling out the onerous IRS Form 8829 and maintaining back-up records for years) and a new simplified option. Under the new, so-called “safe

harbor” method, you can simply claim a standard deduction of $5 per square foot for the portion of your home used regularly and exclusively for business, up to a maximum of 300 square feet – a $1,500 limit. Contrast that with the traditional method where you must calculate actual expenses of your home office expressed as a percentage of the square footage your home office consumes. For example, if your office takes up 12 percent of your house, you can deduct 12 percent of your electricity bill. A few additional details: * You can choose either method from year to year; however, once you’ve elected a method for a given

8th annual Can-Do Day to honor local students TEMECULA – Friends of Ronald Reagan Sports Park (FRRSP) will present the 8th Annual Can-Do Day Celebration on Saturday, March 8 from 3 to 4 p.m. in the Temecula Community Recreation Center at Temecula’s Ronald Reagan Sports Park. This day is about honoring local students who demonstrate the cando spirit, described by Ronald Wilson Reagan on March 3, 1983 when he spoke of the folks in Temecula as having a can-do spirit. The words appear on the Can-Do Monument that stands near the snack bar fronting Rancho Vista Rd. FRRSP built and donated the monument to the city last February. Each year, 3rd and 4th grade students from the Temecula Valley Unified School​District, as well as private schools and home-schooled students, are invited to enter an essay contest answering​the question: “Why is individual initiative important, and why do we honor President Reagan and the​Temecula volunteers who built our first sports park?”

This year, many students put their hearts​and minds into their effort and it was very evident in the quality of their work. First prize of $150 goes to the 3rd or 4th grader with the best response. Second place gets $100 and 3rd place, $50. Community Little Book publishes the essays of the top three prize winners in the next issue of Community Little Book. The top three students at each school with three or more entries receive Certificates of Recognition. Every student who enters the contest and attends the Can-Do Day Celebration will receive an “I’m a Can-Do Kid!” decal at the event. In addition, a Temecula or Murrieta high school senior will be awarded the Medallion of Initiative and a $500 scholarship for submitting an essay that offers a compelling, true, personal story of individual initiative. A Rancho Elementary School Character Building Group, comprised of students from grades 1 through 3, will use music, dance

and drama to focus on an important character trait. The CBGs, as the group is called, is directed by Anne O’Donnell-McCann, a Rancho Elementary School teacher, and Stacy Senecal, a parent. Another teacher, Teresa Heine of Temecula Prep, will talk about her visit to the Discovery Center at the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, where her 8th grade students took part in a simulated crisis that occurred during the Reagan Administration. The students played the roles of the decision-makers, including the President, as they re-enacted the crisis. The experience was underwritten by the FRRSP. Also part of this event is the presentation of the Mayor’s Trophy which is awarded to the school with the greatest number of qualified entries in the essay contest for the 3rd and 4th graders. For questions about the 2014 Can Day Celebration, contact Perry Peters at (951) 676-1984 or e-mail him at perrypeters2@verizon.net.

Also visit the IRS’ Self-Employed Individuals Tax Center. Bottom line: Income taxes are often more complicated for selfemployed people and good recordkeeping is essential. Unless you’re an accounting whiz, consider hiring a tax professional or financial planner who specializes in selfemployment issues. The penalties and fees they can help you avoid – and hidden deductions they can uncover – will probably more than pay for their fees.

tax year it’s irrevocable. * Under the safe-harbor method you cannot depreciate the portion of your home used for business in that particular year. * With the new method you can still claim allowable mortgage interest, real estate taxes and insurance losses as itemized deductions on Schedule A. These deductions don’t have to be allocated between personal and business use, as under the traditional method. You’ll need to weigh whether the recordkeeping hours you save justify the potentially smaller deduction – especially if you have a large home office or considerable deductions. Suggestion: Look at last year’s deduction and compare what it would have been using the $5 per square foot calculation, factoring in time spent doing the math. A few other self-employment tax-filing considerations: * In addition to the home office deduction, you generally can deduct many other business-related expenses, including: legal and accounting fees; professional dues and subscriptions; business insur-

Home & Garden

Apply fertilizer, mulch to rose beds as spring arrives Frank Brines Consulting Rosarian Special to the Valley News Local weather and soil remain warm so it probably seems like spring to your roses, which I’m betting have continued their growing cycle even though it is March. In a new rose garden, or with newly pruned roses that haven’t sprouted new growth, remove all debris, apply lime sulfur dormant spray according to the package direction, and then thoroughly wet all canes and the surrounding soil. For roses that have sprouted, be more careful in your application and be sure to follow the “growing season instructions” on the label. Given that your roses are about as bare as they’re going to be for the rest of the year, take time now to inspect and make any necessary repairs to the irrigation system. Drip systems are the most efficient and they avoid problems of aboveground sprayer and sprinklers which waste water (especially important during our serious drought) and can foster molds, mildews and rust. Make sure your irrigation system is in good working order; for example, make sure all the emitters are delivering the expected amount of water and that there are no leaks. If you completed your rose pruning last month you are probably seeing tender, new, red-coppery growth – a pleasing result for rose aficionados. Now would be the time to sprinkle ½ cup to 1 cup of Epson

Salts widely around the base of each plant. (Use half as much for minis and mini-floras.) There is some indication that this helps in producing new cane growth known as “basal breaks.” If your feeding program is organic, you can apply fertilizer immediately after pruning. If you use inorganic fertilizers, wait until this new growth is 2-3 inches long. I suggest the initial feeding be higher in nitrogen to encourage new stem and leaf growth. When new growth is 4-6 inches long, apply a fertilizer higher in phosphate to give roots a boost at the start of the season. Another method used by some is to sprinkle superphosphate (available at home stores and nurseries) on the soil surface at a rate of 1 pound for every 10 square feet. Lightly water it into the soil. Top your rose bed with a 2” to 4” layer of organic composted mulch. If you’ve read this column for more than a month or so, you know that I’m a big believer in composted mulch! It’s best if it covers the entire rose bed. It will help supply nutrients for beneficial soil organisms that transport these nutrients into the plant root zone. It will also insulate the upper 8” to 12” where most rose roots feed, keeping it cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Mulch also helps prevent water loss and evens out the soil moisture. I am often asked how much water a rose needs. This is another of those “it depends.” It depends on a

lot of factors: weather, the size of the plant, the composition of the soil, the cycle of growth, the variety of the plant, etc. Typical mature, full-size hybrid tea in Southern California soil requires about 6-9 gallons of water a week when the high temperatures are in the 70s. As temperatures rise into the 80s, the rose will require about 9 gallons of water per week. In the 90s, the rose will require about 12 gallons per week and even more. A miniature rose, depending on size, requires about one-third to one-half as much. These figures are rough and based on the amount of water needed to maintain the highest level of show quality; the rose will stay alive on considerably less. For your regular feeding program, I recommend that you avoid products that describe themselves as “systemic.” These contain insecticide and/or fungicide (mold killer) that enter the plant through the leaves and roots, and circulate within it. I avoid such products for two reasons. First, because much of the product ends up washing into the soil, you are laying waste to a wide range of soil organisms, including beneficial ones, thus making your soil less diverse and dynamic – this can only be bad in the long run for your plants. Secondly, because these poisons circulate within the plant, there’s a chance that they are implicated in the widespread collapse of honey bee populations. Also, “bad” bugs will feed on the poisons and in turn poison the beneficial insects, birds, the praying mantis, and lady bugs that eat them.

As spring arrives, finish any last minute pruning and lay a fresh bed of mulch and fertilizer to rose beds to ensure a successful bloom.

plan to use blossoms or petals for any household purpose (potpourri, recipes), be aware that these poisons are in all plant parts, also in the blooms and thus petals. Also, I use and emphatically recommend organic types of fertilizer, as vs. inorganic or “chemical” ones, because organics are less concentrated (thus less likely to burn plant tissues) and their nutrients are released more slowly. This fosters better soil development, making for a richer, livelier, and more viable community of soil organisms that is able to break the elements

into an easily absorbed form and releases them slowly to the plants. As your soil develops, you’ll be able to use less and less product and save money in the process.

I Need a Loving Home ANIMAL

Labrador Retriever / Mixed Male (neutered) 2 Years Old

Meet Houdini: I was adopted from ARK as a puppy last April 2012. I was turned into ARK by a person who found me wondering around lost. I got adopted again, but my family could no longer fit me in to their schedule. I’m a little confused. I don’t understand why my family brought me back. I love to play, and will be your best friend if you take me home! I really want to have a real forever home, with a family who truly loves me.

SCREEN from page B-8 emergency storage in the event of a major earthquake, carryover storage in periods of drought, and seasonal storage to meet member agency demands. The inlet/outlet tower east of the lake’s Owen Dam is 266 feet high; nine tiers of twin ports spaced 25 feet apart allow water to enter or exit from different lake elevations. A hydraulically-operated butterfly valve controls flow through each port, which is seven feet in diameter. The ports open into a wet well which rises the full height of the tower above the pressure tunnel at its base. The lake water passing through the tower into the pressure tunnel can be diverted either to the Wadsworth pumping plant or to the adjacent pressure control structure. When water is being withdrawn from the lake, fish screens are placed in front of the ports to prevent debris from entering the

tower. In addition to protecting the fish, the screens also protect the valves at the tower and at the pressure control structure and the pump turbines at the Wadsworth pumping plant. The four fish screens are each 26 feet wide by 19 feet tall. The fish screens are raised and lowered to the desired elevation by a pulley system operated by a gantry crane mounted on top of the tower. The fish screens, like other parts of Diamond Valley Lake, are inspected periodically. An inspection of the fish screens identified extensive corrosion damage in the coated carbon steel structure elements including the hoist beam eye bars, the support beams, and the retaining pins. The corrosion was likely caused by galvanic action between the screens’ stainless steel and carbon steel components. In November 2012 the MWD board authorized the preliminary design phase to replace the fish screens with units which would not be susceptible to galvanic cor-
