Sgt. ‘Iron Mike’ Mervosh to share experiences from Battle of Iwo Jima March 22 TEMECULA – Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Flag Day in 1923, “Iron Mike” Mervosh enlisted in the Marine Corps in September 1942. By the time of his retirement in 1977, he points out that he had “served [in combat] in every enlisted rank from Private to Sergeant Major.” That combat spanned three wars – World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. For World War II, Iron Mike fought in the battles of Roi-Namur, the Marshall Islands, Saipan, Tinian, and Iwo Jima. In each one he was part of the 4th Marine Division. For heroic actions on Iwo Jima, Mike received his first Navy Commendation Medal.

TVHS students were introduced to a wide variety of career paths at the job fair with information on how to get started upon graduation from high school.

Jason Alderman Special to the Valley News

Alex Groves Staff Writer

Does this sound familiar? A few years back your yearly earnings were pretty low so you figured you wouldn’t owe any income tax. Thus, when April 15 rolled around the following year you didn’t bother filing a tax return, knowing you wouldn’t be penalized. Big mistake. Even if your income fell below the threshold at which you’d owe anything, chances are taxes were deducted from your paycheck throughout the year. (Check your year-end W-2 form). If so, you probably left a sizeable tax refund on the table. see page B-6

Hundreds of high school students got a jump start on entering the job market during a special job fair that took place from 1 to 3 p.m. Friday, March 7 in the mini gym at Temecula Valley High School. The event was the second to take place at the high school in two years and more than 85 employers and organizations came to give students tips on the best way to put together resumes and go in for interviews, according to La Verne WilliamsSchoonover. Williams-Schoonover, a college and career counselor at the high school, said the event came out of what was a community service fair. In order to graduate from TVHS, students must meet a community service requirement where they complete 40 hours or more of community service over the course of their high school career. The community service fair pooled together a wide number of organizations in the area that students could network with and find the community service opportunities that fit them best, according to Williams-Schoonover. “We went out into the community, we knocked on all these doors and we got 66 nonprofit organizations to come to our Community Service Connection Fair

and that’s in the fall,” WilliamsSchoonover said. “From that, this was launched.” The career counselor said she went through the same group of non-profit organizations that she worked with for service opportunities to find employers who would be willing to connect with students. “We want them (students) to have that confident feeling when they’re walking in there that they know they can achieve something they’re really interested in and they really want to explore,” she said. “So it’s nice that every single one of these individuals is donating their time so that these kids can prepare their way to healthy transitions in the work force or into trade school.” One of the booths set up at the event was an internship opportunity where civically-minded students could apply to intern for State Senator Joel Anderson. Anderson, who represents California’s 36th senate district, has an office in Temecula. College intern Adam Hussain was leading the effort to encourage high school students to try interning for Anderson. He said he was looking to encourage students with diverse interests to get involved with the Anderson’s program because it was so multi-faceted.

Hard News Investigation into fatal explosion that killed four Marines on Camp Pendleton has been concluded; two relieved of duties CAMP PENDLETON – The Marine Corps experienced a tragic loss on Nov 13, 2013, when four Marines from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal community died as a result of a training evolution aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. As a result of the mishap, a command investigation was initiated by Brig. Gen. John Bullard, Commanding General, Marine Corps Installations West-Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. The investigation established that the exact cause of the explosion is indeterminate, as the only individuals with direct observation are deceased. Based on the findings of the investigation, the most probable cause of the explosion is a M430/A1 40mm High Explosive Dual Purpose round was dropped,

kicked, or bumped in the demolition pit. “Many of the training evolutions we conduct are inherently dangerous, especially when dealing with explosives and munitions. We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of four Marines during a training evolution; their loss is felt throughout the Marine Corps. We offer our heartfelt prayers and thoughts to the family members, and will continue to support them through this difficult time,” said Bullard. Upon a thorough review of the command investigation, Bullard relieved the Officer and Staff NonCommissioned Officer in Charge of Marine Corps Base Explosive Ordnance Disposal section of their duties on March 4, 2014, for loss of trust and confidence in their ability to ensure proper preparation for

and conduct of EOD proficiency training and lack of adherence to the established norms. Additionally, Bullard directed an immediate review and revision of existing policies and procedures for EOD training aboard all Marine Corps Installations West ranges. Revisions will include a requirement for more focused Operational Risk Management training on risk assessment, risk mitigation, and appropriate levels of approval; specific coordination requirements for all EOD training requests; mandatory adherence to the range survey requirements contained in the Technical Manual EOD Procedures Surface Range Clearance; and the implementation of additional safety training requirements for EOD personnel not currently required by other directives.

Fire, police personnel train for mass assault MURRIETA – Murrieta police and firefighters this week will be simulating a mass casualty operation where rescuers work to stop a rampaging gunman while trying to save as many lives as possible. “It’s really good that we’re practicing together,” said Murrieta Fire Department Capt. Matt Corelli. “We want to make sure we’re all on the same page in this type of scenario.” The “Active Shooter” simulation is scheduled for Friday, March 14 behind fire department headquarters at 41825 Juniper St. According to Corelli, one of the leading objectives is to iron out potential problems in how the

two agencies communicate and approach an act of mass violence. “Firefighters and police officers speak a different language. So that communication link is a big-time, important element of this,” he said. “We already have a good working relationship. But we need to make some adjustments so there aren’t any issues in the future.” He said the scenario will test how fire crews and police officers react to a crazed gunman or terrorist carrying out an assault at an elementary school, comparable to what transpired at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012. Twenty children and six adults were killed.

“The officers will be going in to neutralize the shooter with AR15 rifles. The firefighters will be equipped with ballistic protection, and we will go in and systematically triage and sort patients according to their injuries,” Corelli said. During a practice run, police explorers played the roles of victims. “We want to do these live drills on a semiannual basis,” Corelli said. “Since 2000, events like the one at Sandy Hook have become more common. We want to get everybody trained.” About two dozen public safety personnel will be involved in the two-hour exercise according to Corelli.

Drunken motorist who caused fatal crash pleads guilty RIVERSIDE – A drunken and drug-impaired driver who caused a head-on crash near Perris that killed a 62-year-old man pleaded guilty on March 8 – for the second time – to felony charges. Andre Elgin Williams, 41, killed Jose Hernandez of Perris in a Nov. 14, 2013 collision that also put the defendant’s 2-year-old son in danger. Williams pleaded guilty on Nov. 19, 2013 to gross vehicular manslaughter, felony driving under the influence and child endangerment, and the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office accepted the plea without objection. However, less than a month later, toxicology results showed Williams was not only inebriated from drinking alcohol, but also had marijuana in his bloodstream at the time of the crash. Based on the new information, prosecutors filed a motion, which Riverside County Superior Court Judge Becky Dugan approved, to set aside the earlier plea agreement and filed an amended complaint against Williams. During a status hearing at the Riverside Hall of Justice today, Williams pleaded guilty to the same charges as before – as well as a count of DUI resulting in injuries and a sentence-enhancing allegation of inflicting great bodily injury. Under terms of the revised plea agreement, Williams is facing a sentence of 13 years, eight months in prison. Dugan is expected to certify the plea deal during a sentencing hearing on March 18. Williams remains held without bail at the Robert Presley Detention

Man suspected of dealing cocaine from Temecula home TEMECULA – A man suspected of dealing cocaine out of his home behind the gates of an upscale community in Temecula has been arrested, a sheriff’s sergeant said.

An undisclosed amount of money, packaging materials and drug paraphernalia consistent with illicit narcotic sales was also found. Marzo was arrested for suspicion of transporting and possessing a controlled substance and being under the influence of a controlled substance, Green said. Marzo posted $30,000 bail and was released the following day, records showed.

Center in Riverside. According to the California Highway Patrol, the previously convicted DUI offender was heading southbound on Old Elsinore Road, near Michael Road, around 1:15 p.m. when he steered his 2004 Dodge Ram pickup truck across the double yellow lines into the opposing traffic lane. Williams had his son strapped into a child safety seat in the back of the truck, said CHP Officer Travis Monks. Monks said that after the Dodge crossed into the northbound lane, it plowed head-on into Hernandez’s 1997 GMC pickup, triggering a fire on the roadway and leaving the mortally injured victim trapped inside his vehicle. Fire crews arrived moments later, extinguished the flames and freed Hernandez, who was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Riverside County Fire Department. Williams was so intoxicated, he failed to remove his son from the wreckage until he was reminded by a witness that the boy was still inside the pickup, according to Deputy District Attorney Kevin Beecham. Williams suffered moderate injuries, while his son escaped unharmed. Williams was brought to Riverside County Regional Medical Center in Moreno Valley, where he was taken into custody after receiving treatment. His son was placed in the care of family members. Williams has a prior misdemeanor DUI conviction from 2000.

Local Temecula DMV to close on March 21 Alex Groves Staff Writer The Temecula DMV is set to close its doors for six months to facilitate renovations, but there are still options available to individuals looking to get their vehicles registered or their licenses renewed. According to an official notice on the Temecula DMV website, the office will be closed starting Friday, March 21 and is slated to re-open sometime in September of this year. The notice encourages drivers who would normally visit the Temecula DMV to consider nearby options such as offices in Poway or Hemet. A local business has also stepped up to process some of the things normally handled by the DMV during the time it’s closed. SGB Insurance Services, a full service insurance agency in Wildomar, is offering to handle things like renewals, transfers, VIN veri-

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved the advertisement for bid and subsequent award of a construction contract for drainage improvements along Rainbow Crest Road and Rainbow Heights Road. The supervisors’ 5-0 vote Feb. 26 also appropriated $1,390,000 of available balance from the road fund of the county’s Department of Public Works for the project involving the west side of Rainbow Crest Road north of Rock Ridge Drive and the west side of Rainbow Heights Road between branches of Select Way. The supervisors’ action also found the project categorically exempt from California Environmental Quality Act review. “Over a period of years, winter storms critically reduced the stability of the slopes along Rainbow Crest,” said Supervisor Bill Horn.

“Staff closely monitored the slope and designed a retaining wall that will ensure safety on the road and for nearby residential homes.” Rainbow Crest Road is a narrow two-lane road which was cut into a steep slope. During the December 2010 storms, a 40-foot section was heavily damaged when slope failure underneath the roadway caused the outside lane to wash out, which left only one lane open to traffic. The county declared a proclamation of local emergency due to the December 2010 storms, and the Department of Public Works issued emergency contracts to repair roads and culverts and to remove debris. The repair work design was expedited, and in May 2011 the county supervisors authorized a construction contract for repairs to Rainbow Crest Road which included building a wall to fortify and stabilize the slope at the failure location as well as reconstructing the outside lane. Since the completion of that

emergency repair work, DPW staff has monitored the slope regularly to ensure that its overall integrity is being maintained. The design plans for a longer-term solution were completed. A retaining wall will repair the existing slope, which will also improve drainage and reduce the potential of future flooding as well as reducing the risk of additional failures. A retaining wall and drainage improvements will also be constructed along Rainbow Heights Road. “We’re expecting the wall to be in place by fall 2014,” Horn said. The construction is expected to begin this spring. Traffic control measures during construction will limit impacts to the community. The construction will take place both on public right-of-way and on private property, and temporary access rights for the private property have been obtained. On Jan. 15, the Rainbow Community Planning Group endorsed the project with a 9-0 vote.

Cheers to the celebrations on St. Patrick’s Day St. Patty’s Day is known for its fun, celebrating with friends and family, wearing some green clothing to get in the spirit of the day, honoring the Irish. Even if you’re not Irish, come celebrate the festivities that are offered to all of us. Some green beer to toast to the Irish, with delicious green corn beef and cabbage, which we all know is an all time favorite as well as a long lived tradition. The Irish are very much known for their celebrations. Many of us have an

Irish background somewhere down the line in our family tree. Some fun suggestions to do to honor St. Patty’s Day is to bake a green cake with green frosting, topped with shamrock decorations, bake green sugar cookies and add green frosting with sparkles, try some green whipped cream on your favorite tea or coffee drink. Whatever you choose to do to get in the spirit of the day, do it with a splash of green! Check out Old Town in Temecula as they capture

the joy of their celebrations on St. Patrick’s Day. And remember, you may be led to that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! The luck of the Irish can apply to all of us! Wishing you all a fruitful, fun celebration on St. Patrick’s Day and much luck throughout the year. Cheers to a fantastic day!!

Update on prison overcrowding California’s prisons, with approximately 117,000 inmates, are currently at more than 144 percent of capacity. Recent federal court rulings requiring a reduction in the prison population have created massive ongoing public safety and fiscal concerns. Solutions have included transferring thousands of prisoners from state to county supervision, and the relocation of thousands more to facilities located in other states. Last September, the Governor and legislative leaders from both parties reached agreement on how to proceed. Federal judges would be asked to extend the April dead-

line to reduce the state’s prison population to 137.5 percent of capacity in exchange for a promise to spend millions on rehabilitation efforts. As a result, the three judge federal panel overseeing the state’s overcrowding case recently extended the deadline until February, 2016. Had the courts refused, California would have been forced to spend millions of scarce dollars, including up to $70 million over the next two years, to relocate additional prisoners to other states. This ruling had been anticipated. Governor Brown’s proposed budget assumed the courts would grant

the extension. Consequently, there will be no resulting windfall of unanticipated revenues. As a member of the Public Safety Committee and the Select Committee on Justice Reinvestment, I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to arrive at a permanent solution to the overcrowding problem that is financially sound and, more importantly, guarantees public safety, government’s first and most important responsibility.

honor since 1995 such as CR&R Environmental, Callaway Winery, and Wilson Creek Winery. “We’ve been in the Temecula Valley for only four years so it came as a surprise,” said Nick Dexter, the branch’s production manager. “We had an indication we were nominated because we represent such an important part of the growth of Temecula, with new homeowners and giving them the opportunity that’s the American Dream.” “I think we were certainly honored, but more importantly very surprised that a young company with young guys trying to make an impact out there in the market place (would be recognized),” he said. “To be recognized that early in our business is a great honor.” Dexter said he believes the Temecula branch’s success comes in part from their commitment to being honest with people and let-

ting them know what kind of expectations they should have when mortgaging a home. He said he believes the branch’s commitment to helping members of the community facing hard times was another reason they were chosen. This year members of the branch helped homeless individuals in the area by stuffing backpacks for them with things they might need and that’s something Dexter said he felt was important to do because WJ Bradley is a financial institution. “Because we’re a financial service related industry, we felt like we should give back to those charities and help those that maybe have fallen down because of tough times in the industry,” he said. While Nick Dexter said he was surprised and honored to win the Temecula Gold Business award from the Temecula Valley Chamber

of Commerce, WJ Bradley Home Mortgage Consultant Jeremy Hauser said he wasn’t surprised at all. Hauser said he moved from another mortgage company because he was impressed by how WJ Bradley’s Temecula office was doing and because he wanted to work in an atmosphere where people took pride in their jobs and responsibility for what they did. The Mortgage Consultant said he’s found all that since the move and is looking forward to some possible growth for WJ Bradley which ranks as one of the smaller mortgage companies. “I would not be surprised if in a year they’ve outdone Navy Fed and are creeping up on Sierra Pacific and Chase,” Hauser said.

In other words, there’s no hope, but I felt there was hope because man, oh, man, I still got my Marines around me.” In his forceful yet eloquent way, Sergeant Major Iron Mike Mervosh will explain his description of Iwo Jima as “a perfect battlefield” on Saturday, March 22 at 1 p.m. at West Coast Ammo. Dr. Linda Dudik of the World

War II Experience and Professor Emeritus of History Charles Hanlen will be there to provide a historical context for Iron Mike’s stories.

Two out of every three Americans who fought in Iwo Jima either died or were wounded. Mike was one of only 31 in his company to, as he puts it, “walk off the island at the end of the battle.” While in Iwo Jima (and really in every enemy engagement in every war Mike fought in), he admits that he didn’t “think too much about survival.

Local ROD RUN from page A-1 better communication with the merchants,” Montgomery said. “Because we’ve been here a long time and so have these other people.” Montgomery said that she’d like to see changes in parking and communication, but that she’d also like to see a change in the way the event is structured. Currently the event is spread out over Friday night and the rest of Saturday, but it wasn’t always this way. In previous years the Rod Run would last through Sunday and that’s something Montgomery said she and other merchants would like to see come back because they believe it would bring more business. Sid Hamilton, owner of Mad Madeline’s grill, said he agrees with Montgomery’s position. He implemented a sign-up sheet where members of the public could sign their names if they thought the Rod Run should revert back to its three day format. “We’re trying to show the city and show the event coordinators that people (who) are here are signing and would like to see a Sunday show,” Hamilton said. “It’s not like a petition but we’re pretty much trying to say, ‘Hey, these are your Temeculan people and here’s what they think.’” Montgomery also implemented a sign-up sheet and said she hopes the city will take what she and others have suggested under advisement.

“And I’m not being critical of the city because this is their first year doing it,” she said. “I just think these are some things they need to bear in mind for next year.” While some complained over the parking situation and the way the event was structured, others said they didn’t notice. Area resident Hannah Frazee said she didn’t know about the parking restrictions and that she didn’t mind parking. “We actually didn’t even notice,” Frazee said. “We parked and walked over from Haberdashery

FAIR from page A-1 “The internship program is really flexible,” Hussain said. “We understand that students do have other goals in life and we don’t try to impede on that and that’s why the internship program really caters to the interns themselves. The college intern said he thinks programs that allow students to intern early are important because they allow those students to learn more about themselves and their passions. “I think that’s really the most important thing for me, is that I got into this after high school rather than before because I found something that I’m interested in later on,” he said. “But you know, everyone’s different and everyone

and it wasn’t too much of a walk.” Ray Andresen, another spectator at the event, said he’s been going to see cars at the show for the past 14 years. He said he’s seen the event evolve over that time and take on a number of different changes and that the changes the city has made since taking over don’t bother him. “I think it’s running smoothly,” Andresen said. “It’s safe and it’s nice.”

At the end of an event to get students excited about possible jobs, State Senator Anderson’s office presented several students with awards for community service.

Those students were Samantha Blakenship, Sara Cortez, Erick Kolar, Victoria Williams, Austin George and Erich Lauk. The students stood together at the event in acceptance of their awards as their fellow classmates clapped for them. To comment on this story online, visit www.myvalleynews.com.

Youth inspired by Rady Children’s; bake sale to benefit hospital Jodi Thomas Staff Writer Hospitals can be scary, cold places for children. When three friends – Kennedy Cornwell, Abby LaRue and Megan Fitzpatrick – visited a sick friend in the hospital recently, they were reminded of how it felt to be there. The staff at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego has helped them and others feel safe and cared for during difficult circumstances in the past. The trio has thought about giving back to Rady Children’s Hospital before – last summer they raised around $40 sweeping driveways to donate. Now, with goal of fundraising refreshed in their hearts, this group of 7th grade girls who call their organization “KAM” (which stands for Kennedy, Abby and Megan) have hopes of raising funds regularly. This Saturday, March 15 will be the launch of this endeavor. The

families is also vitally important to both physical and mental health. Rady Children’s has worked hard to develop and expand the use of innovative healing strategies that focus on emotions and the environment,” states the hospital’s website, www.rchsd.org. “We seek to comfort patients and families and allay their fears through our Healing Arts Program (music, art and storytelling), child-friendly facilities, art on display, and peaceful and whimsical gardens.” “We have combined all that we

know about children and their needs with the growing body of knowledge about the interaction of people and places: the impact of light and color, of texture and tone, of sounds and symbols. We turned to the arts, as well as to the sciences, to help our children heal,” the website notes. A healing environment is what the young trio “KAM” wants to see continued.

Real Estate Prop 13, 8, 60 and 90 affect homeowners ages 55+ and property taxes be offered here. Our intention is simply to open the topic for general discussion and further research by anyone who is interested. Questions regarding available inventory and/or other real estate matters please contact me, Mike@

John Occhi, Mike Mason Special to the Valley News Real estate values have increased significantly across the TemeculaMurrieta Valley and as a result property taxes will be going up since many homeowners benefited from a temporary reduction in value under the provisions of Prop 8. As a result of the increase in equity, many homeowners ages 55+ will want to sell the homes they’ve been in for numerous years, cashing out and downsizing to a smaller, more comfortable and manageable residence, enjoying the promises of their dream retirement. Let us offer a snapshot of each significant legislation and how they impact your decision to sell your Temecula-Murrieta real estate now and find that dream home. Prop 13: People’s initiative to limit property taxation amendment to the California Constitution in 1978 Prop 13 was overwhelming passed by the voters to limit skyrocketing property taxes, offering both the State of California and the homeowner predictability in their income/property taxes. A base year was established, typically the purchase price in an arms-length transaction. The assessed value will increase no more than two percent per year. This new value is referred to as the ‘Trended Base Year’ or the ‘Prop 13 Factored Base Year’ or simply the ‘Base Year Value.’ Prior to Prop 13 becoming the law of the land, property taxes skyrocketed in good times when home values increased. Consequently, homeowners who had been in their homes for numerous years ended up with property tax bills that were much higher when the market improved and home values went up. There were instances where taxes more than doubled in less than 5 years. This just was not acceptable. Prop 8 – Temporary reduction in value Prop 8 was passed by the California voters as a constitutional amendment that gave the homeowner the ability to appeal a property tax bill if the assessed value exceeded the current fair market value. The tax payer may have either applied for the reduction formally or the county assessor may have reduced the value on their own. The reduction in value results in a reduction of property taxes due. Bear in mind this is a temporary reduction only. If the reduction is warranted for the following year, it must be applied for, for each year

GOT TERMITES? the value remains below the Prop 13 Base Year Value. Once the market value equals or exceeds the Base Year Value, the county assessor should then adjust the taxes back to the Base Year Value, which has continued to increase by two percent per year – despite the reduction. Prop 60 / Prop 90 – Transfer of Base Year Value Both Prop 60 and Prop 90 allow for a homeowner ages 55+ to transfer the Prop 13 Base Year Value to a new home under the right conditions. The tricky part is counties have the option of opting out of Prop 90. Currently (as of Sept. 19, 2013) there are nine counties participating in the program, including Riverside County. For more information on the others, visit the Board of Equalization website (www.BOE.CA.Gov). There are several requirements that must be met in order for a homeowner to sell one property and buy another while keeping the same low taxes they’ve been paying for years. Let’s take a look at the requirements for both Prop 60 and Prop 90: * Either the seller or the spouse selling a home must be 55+ as of the date the original home is transferred; * The replacement home MUST be your principal residence and must be eligible for either the homeowners’ exemption or the disabled veterans’ exemption; * The new home must be purchased for the same amount as the sale of the original home or less; * The Base Year Value cannot be transferred to the new home until the old home has been transferred to the new buyer; * The replacement home has to be acquired within two years

of the sale of the original home – either purchased or construction completed; * The application must be filed within three years following the purchase or construction of the new home. The Prop 60/90 benefit can only be used one time. If the claimant or the claimants spouse has ever been granted relief under either of these provisions they cannot be granted relief again. The difference between the two laws is that Prop 60 applies to purchases in the same county and Prop 90 applies to homes in other California counties. In other words, regardless of where you live in California, if you meet the requirements for relief under Prop 60 you can purchase a home for equal or less than the sale amount of your original home and transfer the factored Prop 13 Base Year Value to your new home so long as you remain in the same county as where your original home is located. Riverside County and eight others in the state believe it is wise to attract homeowners aged 55+ to their communities because the spending power they bring to the local economy will far outweigh the difference in property taxes. So, Prop 90 allows for any California homeowner that meets the requirements to purchase Riverside County real estate and transfer their Prop 13 Base Year Value property taxes to their new home.

The Movie Review: “Mr. Peabody and Sherman” Robert T. Nickerson Special to the Valley News

just okay as was The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle movie. All these projects prove that the famous Jay Ward cartoons just simply don’t translate well into live action. Going into Peabody’s Improbable History, I’ll say right now that even though I saw these shows as a child, this was never my favorite segment. I found it kind of boring and existing just for educational purposes. But I gave it another view, and the writing is actually very funny. So how does a three-minute sketch translate into the feature length Mr. Peabody and Sherman movie? We start off with Mr. Peabody (played by Ty Burrell) as a puppy who nobody wanted because he was too sarcastic. So he spent his life going into academic research and becoming the most intelligent dog in the world, winning several Nobel prizes and inventing. He takes on his biggest challenge…raising a son. He finds a

The idea to bring television cartoons to the big screen is nothing new. Some efforts like Casper, Popeye and Spongebob Squarepants have been able to transition to a cinematic level and expand the story, but there have been many other efforts (Yogi Bear, Speed Racer, Avatar: The Last Airbender, etc…) that might have also proven that cartoons may not make the best source material for movies. I think that the problem is that the studios behind those kinds of movies assume that children will watch anything, so they’ll rush the project out in theaters without regard in how to use the original material to their advantage. Now Rocky and Bullwinkle is another cartoon that people have tried to adapt before. The less said about the Boris and Natasha movie, the better. Dudley Do-Right was

baby named Sherman and goes through an interesting court case with the idea that “if a boy can adopt a dog, then a dog should be able to adopt a boy.” If you have watched the cartoons, then you know that Peabody invented a time machine called The WABAC and uses it to educate his son and occasionally help out with history’s biggest names. Sherman’s first day of school ends up with him getting in fight with a girl named Penny (played by Ariel Winter). This causes the school to call Social Services where an agent Grunion threatens to take away Sherman should something like this happen again. Mr. Peabody invites Penny and her family over to make amends which leads into her discovering The WABAC and getting stuck in Ancient Egypt. Peabody and Sherman rescue her, but also may have started a domino effect that could put the space-time continuum in danger. Unlike the other Rocky and Bullwinkle adaptations, this one was computer-animated at DreamWorks. And like their other movies, the movie looks great. It updates the look of the characters and environment while keeping true to the original cartoon. The CGI allows

us to see the home of our heroes (a nice penthouse in New York City) and the actual time machine. The days of pulling some knobs and going through a door is over. Judging from the other efforts, Mr. Peabody and Sherman is the best of the Jay Ward televisionto-screen projects. Along with Mr. Peabody’s smarts and wit (thanks to a great performance from Ty Burrell), the story has an emotional arc that gives the movie a nice father/son plot that surprised me. And if the story wasn’t enough, it’s educational. The only problem I had was with Penny, not that she’s a bad

character, but I feel like they gave her a big part just to try and get a girl audience. And though they play around with time travel, the third act gets very complicated and most likely too smart for its own good. I’ll give this four WABAC time machines out of five. Though I liked the movie more than I expected, I wouldn’t necessarily send adults out on their own to see this like I did for The Lego Movie. This movie is mostly for kids and fans of the original cartoons. Robert T. Nickerson is a film critic. His work can be seen at mastermindfilmproductions.com.

‘A Funny Thing Happened’ to commence March 14 SAN JACINTO – Mt. San Jacinto College Performing Arts Departments, San Jacinto Campus, present the classic musical comedy “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” In its original Broadway run it won the Tony Award for Best Musical. It was written by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart, who is best known as the writer and sometimes director of the famed TV series M*A*S*H and writer of the screenplay for the film Tootsie. The music and lyrics were written by Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim (West Side Story, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods). A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots, combining situations from time-tested 2000-year-old Roman comedies with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville. The show is a love letter to vaudeville and classical farce with plenty of plot twists and turns, cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors, and a bawdy wench

Dining in the Valley

Time for Corned Beef and Cabbages approaches

The traditional Irish fare of corned beef was created in America.

Lucette Moramarco Staff Writer

S

t. Patrick’s Day is coming up and with it, for many people, comes the craving for corned beef and cabbage, even if they are not Irish. While some restaurants serve the dish year round, it is most popular at this time of year. Like many other ethnic dishes eaten in the United States, the traditionally Irish fare of corned beef and cabbage did not come from Ireland, but was created in America. A little Internet research came up with the meal’s background. While Ireland was a major exporter of corned beef a few centuries ago, the meat was too expensive for most Irishmen to buy themselves. Later on, Irish immigrants in New York discovered that beef here was cheaper than

pork, which had been their staple meat back home. So corned beef replaced boiled bacon and was paired with cabbage (which was cheaper than potatoes here too) to become an inexpensive and easy to fix meal for many Irish-Americans. The term “corned,” by the way, refers to the process of preserving the meat with kernels of salt. To satisfy that craving for corned beef, local residents have a variety of places they can visit. Two area restaurants serve a corned beef and cabbage dinner year round. The menu at Magee’s Tavern lists “Traditional Irish Fayre” including Corned Beef and Cabbage which is slow-roasted corned beef served with boiled potatoes, cabbage, carrots, and topped with Irish whiskey cream sauce. If you don’t care for cabbage, the tavern’s menu also includes

Corned Beef Tacos, which are served with either a cup of soup or a side salad, and Corned Beef Mac ‘n Cheese served with fresh, sautéed vegetables. Besides a Classic Reuben Sandwich, (corned beef with sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and thousand island dressing on rye bread); the tavern also serves a Reuben Burger, a beef patty topped with the ingredients of a Reuben Sandwich. Rainbow Oaks Restaurant features Corned Beef and Cabbage with Red Potatoes as its daily special dinner entree on Mondays. For those diners who cannot get enough of corned beef, its menu also lists Corned Beef Hash and Eggs as one of its breakfast specials and two sandwiches that contain corned beef – the Reuben Sandwich and the Deli Combo which pairs corned beef with pastrami and Swiss cheese, both

served on grilled marbled rye bread. Anyone who enjoys eating corned beef and cabbage while contributing to a worthy cause has two events to choose from. The Fallbrook VFW Post 1924 is holding its annual St. Patrick’s Day dinner on Friday, March 14 at 6 p.m. at 1175 Old Stage Road. The meal includes corned beef and cabbage, potatoes and carrots, salad, and rolls. The dinner is a fundraiser for veterans’ causes. Call (760) 7288784 for more information. On Saturday, March 15, the Knights of Columbus will present its 11th annual St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Dance at St. Peter’s Catholic Church parish hall, 450 S. Stage Coach Lane. Besides the usual corned beef and cabbage meal, this event includes traditional Irish coffee served at the bar. The event also features a

The US team failed to qualify for the 16team tournament. Crowther has dual citizenship since her mother was born in Mexico. While at a national league tournament in Las Vegas, a coach for Olympiado National – Mexico’s National Olympics – recruited her to be part of a US team sponsored by IME (Instituto de Los Mexicanos En El Exterior). IME is involved in keeping dual citizens engaged with Mexico; the team consisted of players from Northern and Southern California, Texas, Arizona and New Mexico. The team won the gold medal and Crowther scored two goals in the 2-0 final. The women’s national coach watched all the games and subsequently invited a few players to attend the National Soccer Training Center in Mexico City for five weeks over the summer. Crowther

was one of the few invitees. She was invited back several times to train for the CONCACAF Qualifier (North American, Central American and Caribbean nations) in early November. Two days prior to departure, Crowther was notified that she was not being invited back due to a breathing attack she had during the summer camp. Crowther had been diagnosed many years earlier with exercise-induced asthma; however her condition was not helped by usual asthma medications. Crowther managed to fight through her breathing issues

with extreme effort. Upon her dismissal, Crowther immediately visited a specialist in Washington State, who determined that she had been misdiagnosed. She actually has Paradoxical Vocal Chord Dysfunction (VCD), a functional breathing disorder characterized by tightening of the vocal chords during the breathing cycle, resulting in a feeling of shortness of breath. VCD is verified by spirometry (breathing test) and laryngoscopy to confirm the abnormal closure of the vocal cords. The condition is a

breathing inefficiency treated behaviorally (relaxation techniques, biofeedback, and psychotherapy) and not with medication. Due to the similarity of triggers and symptoms, VCD is often confused with asthma and frequently misdiagnosed by physicians. Symptoms may include: shortness of breath or difficulty getting air into or out of the lungs; tightness in the throat or chest; a feeling of choking or suffocation; noisy breathing; hoarse voice.

GOHS competition cheer wins Jamz Nationals Looking forward to USA National Championships Paul Bandong Staff Writer The Great Oak Varsity Competition Cheer Squad is on a roll! Last November in Anaheim, they placed first in their division and won the Grand Champion Award at the Jamz Bid Challenge. The Grand Champion Award included a full paid bid to Nationals. This was a first for GOHS. This February in Las Vegas, the GOHS girls placed first in their division winning the Jamz National Championship. This was another first for GOHS. This past Sunday in Ontario, the elite cheer squad competed in the Spirit Battle of the Stars competition. They took first place in their division and won Grand Champion. This was their second competition with zero deductions. “Now I have to bring them donuts at practice,” laughingly exclaimed cheer coach Lisa West-Klopf. This Friday, March 14, they are performing at the Salute the He-

roes Event at Murrieta Mesa High School. Saturday, the Competition Cheer squad is competing at the Cheer Pros Best of the West Championship in Long Beach. GOHS Competition Cheer will finish off their season two weeks from now at the USA National Championships in Anaheim. The thirty girls and two coaches – West-Klopf and Jeremy Pecoraro – practice two hours per day, three times each week or about 500 hours during the season for a two-minute and thirty second performance. “The team has won Championships and Grand Championships, not because they are good, but because they leave it all on the line every time they take the competition floor,” said Pecoraro, “ Great cheerleaders are not born great, they are great because they live the motto ‘hard work + determination = a winning tradition.’ We approach every competition with the mindset that the judges don’t determine our placement; we determine our own destiny.”

The Great Oak Varsity Competition Cheer Team won their division and Grand Champion at Courtesy photo the recent Battle of the Stars competition last weekend in Ontario. They go to USA Nationals in two weeks.

The senior girls have their own motto, “We strive not to be a success, but rather of value.”

“That is something we try to teach our kids,” said West-Klopf, “not just about cheerleading, but

about responsibility and dedication, determination and commitment.

Golden Bears’ rally, title run fall short, lose 57-56 to Villa Park #3 Temecula Valley eliminated in Div 1A semi-finals Bree Kanov Special to the Valley News The Temecula Valley Golden Bears Varsity Boys’ Basketball team’s dream season came to a nailbiting end in Tuesday night’s 56-57 upset loss to Villa Park. Villa Park was the team that had ended Murrieta Valley’s title quest last year in the Division 2AA quarterfinals. The Villa Park Spartans– who knocked off #2 Alemany last week -- played with intensity all night. Lamont Tyler, Villa Park’s 6’10” wide-bodied center closed off the middle of the paint most of the game, affecting Temecula Valley’s ability to get to the rim. TV’s Ryan Schaefer hit two of his four three’s in the opening period, but the Golden Bears trailed 16-13 going into the second quarter. Spartans led 31-24 at halftime; Luke Selway and CJ Thomas each had 11 points. Riley Schaefer had nine for TV and a struggling Justin Simon was held to one of two free throws. Villa Park’s Kevin Olsen hit back-to-back three’s in the third

quarter. Ryan Schaefer answered with his fourth three of the night. The Golden Bears were behind 4438 at the end of three. Temecula Valley battled back from a twelve-point third-quarter deficit (39-27). Simon scored seven of his eleven second-half points in the final period. TV’S 10-0 run with five minutes left started with a Spartans lead at 52-43. Brian Batchelor’s three gave Temecula Valley the lead back, 55-53, with under a minute left. The standing-room only crowd erupted. Olsen was fouled; he sank both ends of the one-and-one around a Villa Park timeout with 34.9 seconds left. TV had three shot attempts to win in the last thirty seconds. Riley Schaefer led Temecula Valley with 13 points. Ryan Schaefer and Simon each had 12. Dominique Mitchell added ten. “(It) was hard fought,” said Mitchell, “we gave it all we got.” The Temecula Valley Golden Bears finish their season with a final record of 26-5 overall and a historymaking undefeated league season.

Temecula Valley’s Justin Simon shoots over Villa Park’s 6’10” post Lamont Tyler. Simon scored 12 points for the Golden Bears and Lamont led all scorers with 15 for the Spartans.

CROWTHER from page B-1 VCD symptoms are not affected by asthma medicines that open up breathing tubes (bronchodilators like albuterol). According to Dr. Stephen Tiles, an asthma and VCD specialist, the symptoms are not dangerous and do not pose a cardiovascular or pulmonary risk.

the Mexican coaches and team physician to convince them that her condition would not hinder her play. The coaches were unwilling to take chances for the World Cup qualifier in Jamaica. Crowther, a multi-sport athlete, returned to Linfield and in the interim period qualified for the state high school cross-country finals for the third time. Crowther had been named league Runner of the Year twice in her three-year career. Crowther is also a 4.2 GPA student and plans to study neuroscience. The state finals conflicted with major soccer tournaments, so Crowther did not attend. Instead, she played 13 games in 16 days on the west coast and in North Carolina. The games included contests against the prior national champions and the current #1 team in the U.S. The altitude in Mexico City, the stress of the competition, and the air quality had exacerbated her condition leading to the previous episode in the summer before she

had methods of coping with the VCD symptoms. The letter-writing campaign and her performance at elite level competitions convinced the coaches of the Mexican National Team to allow her to return with the proviso that she would be sent home immediately if there were issues. Crowther survived multiple levels of cuts. The last elimination was bittersweet: her longtime teammate and roommate, Jessica Moreno, a junior defender from Temecula Valley High School did not survive the final cut. Moreno had made the team going to the World Cup qualifier that Crowther had been cut from for her medical condition. Crowther is now in Costa Rica entering pool play with the Mexican National Team. They are scheduled to take on Colombia on March 16, People’s Republic of China on March 19, and Nigeria on March 23. Quarterfinals are March 27; semi-finals are March 31; and finals are on April 4. Games will be streamed on ESPN3.

Oatmeal: heart healthy and nutritious Stephanie C. Ocano Editor “Avena” is the Spanish translation for oatmeal, and there is no doubt that it is a derivative from the scientific term for oats: Avena sativa. The nutrient-rich grain is the sole ingredient in the popular breakfast choice for health enthusiasts and provides an array of benefits from lowering cholesterol to decreasing your risk of cardiovascular disease. If you’ve tried oatmeal before and didn’t like it, reconsider. Throw in your favorite fruit or spices like cinnamon and nutmeg and delve in the strength and lasting energy that it provides.

History Originating in Asia, the wild red oat is the ancestor to the modern oat we have come to know. Having been cultivated for two thousand years in various regions throughout the world, oats were first used for medicinal purposes, it was not until later on that they were recognized as a food source. In the early 17th century, Scottish settlers introduced North America to oats, where it remains to be one of the largest commercial producers today alongside Germany, Poland, and Finland. Cooking It is best to buy oats in small quantities at a time since it will go rancid quicker than other grains due

to its higher fat content. Prepared oatmeal should be purchased without the addition of any salt, sugar, or preservatives. The nutrition label should state only one ingredient: whole grain oats. To make oatmeal, add your oats to cold water and then cook at a simmer. Typically, two parts water to one part oats is ideal. But you can re-arrange this to accommodate your preferences. At this time, you can include the spices or sugar you would like to include to allow the oats to absorb the flavor (you can also do this after as a topping). Oatmeal (uncooked) should be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place where it will keep for roughly two months. Ways to enjoy * Add fresh blueberries, raspberries and a drizzle of honey to a hot bowl of oatmeal. * Make oatmeal cookies for a healthy midday treat. * Add whole oats to bread or muffins when baking. * Include oats in your morning smoothie – blend them with fruits, ice, and a splash of milk. Benefits Lower cholesterol – Oats (and

therefore oatmeal) contain the fiber beta-glucan. Consuming oat fiber has been proven to lower total cholesterol levels, especially “bad” cholesterol. Prevent heart disease – A study from the Archives of Internal Medicine states that eating high fiber foods helps prevent heart disease. In the study, people eating the most fiber had less coronary and cardiovascular disease compared to those eating less. Oatmeal also contains lignans, a plant chemical that has been found to prevent heart disease.

Lower weight – Due to its high fiber levels, eating oatmeal leaves you feeling fuller, longer. This will lead you to avoid those quick, sugary temptations and continue throughout the day making the right food choices. In addition to the various health benefits, oats are also a great source of iron, magnesium, and B vitamins. Fun fact Approximately 75 percent of US households have oatmeal in their cupboard.

A dental health exam may reveal a warning sign for diabetes.

INLAND EMPIRE – Regular dental checkups are essential to maintaining oral health. In addition to preventing dental caries and removing tartar that contributes to gum disease, dental checkups can alert patients to other potential health problems. For example, symptoms of periodontal disease may be indicative of the presence of diseases that stems from outside of the mouth, including diabetes. Diabetes, a condition of uncontrolled blood sugar or insulin production, can affect many areas of the body, including the mouth. Diabetics face a high risk of oral health problems because of fluctuating levels of blood sugar, which impairs white blood cells. White blood cells are the body’s main defense against disease and are dispatched when a virus or bacteria is present. Should white blood cells be rendered less effec-

Star

tive, the body’s defense system is compromised and infections can occur in the mouth and elsewhere. Those with diabetes may complain of certain oral symptoms. Uncontrolled diabetes can result in a decrease in saliva flow, which leads to dry mouth. Saliva is important to wash away bacteria in the mouth. Gum inflammation can occur because diabetes causes blood vessels to thicken, slowing the flow of waste and nutrients from bodily tissues. An increase in bacteria and the compromised state of white blood cells makes for the perfect environment for periodontal disease. Furthermore, uncontrolled diabetes can make it more difficult for the mouth and other areas of the body to heal. Therefore, there may be recurrent mouth infections, sores and other symptoms of irritation. Thrush, a condition of overabundant yeast in the body that can

cause white patches and soreness in the mouth, is also more prevalent among diabetics. The American Diabetes Association says that not only are people with diabetes more susceptible to serious gum disease, but serious gum disease may have the potential to affect blood glucose control and contribute to the progression of diabetes. Many people are unaware they have diabetes until an oral health exam raises a red flag that warns of uncontrolled blood sugar. Those who are aware of their diabetes should take treatment seriously to keep blood sugar levels in check. They also should discuss their diabetes with a dentist and other oral health practitioners so that a custom exam and screening schedule can be implemented. It is vital for diabetics to maintain oral health to reduce the risk of infections of the mouth that can spread elsewhere throughout the body.

Grow a nutritious garden in a pot

My heart beats stronger now ... with Palomar Health.

Melinda Myers Special to the Valley News Don’t let a lack of time or space get in the way of gardening your way to a healthy lifestyle. Plant a container of nutritious vegetables and herbs. Include a few planters on the front porch, back patio or right outside the kitchen door. All that’s needed is some potting mix, fertilizer, plants and a container with drainage holes. A fifteen to twenty-four inch diameter pot or twenty-four to thirty-six inch long window box is a good starting size. Bigger containers hold more plants and moisture longer, so it can be watered less frequently. Check containers daily and water thoroughly as needed. Self-watering pots need less frequent watering, allowing busy gardeners and travelers the opportunity to grow plants in pots with minimal care. Fill the container with a welldrained potting mix. Read the label on the container mix bag. Add a slow release organic nitrogen fertilizer at planting for better results with less effort. It provides small amounts of nutrients throughout most of the season and eliminates the need to mix and water in fertilizer throughout the growing season. Sprinkle a bit more on the soil surface midseason or when changing out your plantings. Mix colorful flowers with nutritious vegetables for attractive, healthy results. Bright Lights Swiss Chard, pansies (their flowers are edible), colorful leaf lettuce, spinach, radishes, and trailing ivy make a great cool season combination.

Melinda Myers, LLC photo

Mixing nutritious vegetables with colorful flowers and trailers that spill over the container edges creates an interesting and attractive container garden.

Fresh-from-the-container-garden vegetables make the best tasting salads and the greens provide Vitamins A and C as well as calcium. Use the pansy flowers to dress up a salad or frozen in ice cubes for an added gourmet touch to beverages. For summer, use a tomato, pepper, eggplant or peas, beans, and cucumbers trained on a trellis. All are packed full of nutrients and make a great vertical accent. Surround the towering vegetables with purple basil, tri-color sage, carrots, beets and a colorful trailing annual like verbena, lantana, or bidens. Don’t forget to squeeze in a few onions or garlic. The fragrant foliage can be decorative and these vegetables help lower blood sugar and cholesterol, while aiding in digestion.

For a while, I just didn’t feel like myself, even around the people I love. Then came the chest pain. I was terrified, but I felt better the moment I got to Palomar Medical Center. My nurse in the cath lab was Chrysta, my neighbor. Between her caring touch and my doctor’s medical expertise, I knew I was in good hands. Navinder Sawhney, M.D., Cardiologist Palomar Medical Center

Victoria Ritua Calvary Murrieta Christian High School Victoria has natural athletic ability and she plays volleyball, basketball and runs track and field. School, however, hasn’t been easy for her. In her sophomore year when her grades slipped and she ended up on academic probation, she made the decision to push herself to bring her grades up. Victoria found that her hard work and dedication paid off and she said success comes down to how badly you want something. Victoria says you will only go as far as your own determination will take you. Victoria has been on ASB for three years and she has had a great impact while serving others. She plans to go to college, major in biology and go into pharmaceutical sales. Oliver Cheng Murrieta Mesa High School Oliver is unassuming and humble even though he has a 4.4 GPA, is captain of the tennis team and the top ranked tennis player at his school. Oliver is currently enrolled in six AP classes and he is a member of National Honor Society and California Scholarship Federation. His teachers say he is a gifted public speaker and writer and he has competed in speech contests. Oliver also volunteers in the feeding ministry at his church. Oliver plans to major in economics and go into banking. Oliver said his biggest life lesson came in the 6th grade when he learned the importance of social interaction, engaging with others and forming relationships. Oliver believes the secrets of success are preparation, hard work and learning from failure.

Don’t forfeit past tax refunds

Azusa Pacific University

SCHOOL OF EDUCATION

Jason Alderman Special to the Valley News Does this sound familiar? A few years back your yearly earnings were pretty low so you figured you wouldn’t owe any income tax. Thus, when April 15 rolled around the following year you didn’t bother filing a tax return, knowing you wouldn’t be penalized. Big mistake. Even if your income fell below the threshold at which you’d owe anything, chances are taxes were deducted from your paycheck throughout the year. (Check your year-end W-2 form). If so, you probably left a sizeable tax refund on the table. The IRS estimates that each year close to a million people don’t bother filing federal tax returns, thereby forfeiting around $1 billion in refunds they were due – refunds that average several hundred dollars apiece. Here’s the good news: The IRS generally gives you a three-year window to go back and file a past year’s tax return if you want to claim an unpaid refund. For example, to collect a refund for 2010 you have until April 15, 2014, to file a 2010 return. After that, the money becomes the property of the U.S. Treasury. You can order prior year tax forms at www.irs.gov or by calling 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676). If you’re missing any supplemen-

Fallbrook Quilt Guild scholarship available FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Quilt Guild is offering a scholarship for up to $1,500. Applications must be received by April 21, 2014. Applicants must be live within the guild membership area (Fallbrook, Oceanside, Temecula, and Murrieta and must be a graduating high school senior. Applicants must also be planning to attend an accredited college or university as a full-time student during the 20142015 academic year. Preference may be given to applicants who are involved in quilting or other fiber art activities. Preference may also be given to applicants who have a relative or close relationship to a member of the FQG. Applications are available online on the FQG website, www.fallbrookquiltguild.com (click “scholarship”), or by emailing scholarship chair Mary Morrison at Morrisonmy@aol.com (subject line: FQG Scholarship).

tary paperwork (e.g., W-2 or 1099 forms), you’ll need to request copies from your employer, bank or other payer. If that doesn’t work, file IRS Form 4506-T to request a free transcript showing information from these year-end documents. Keep in mind that if you file to collect a refund on your 2010 taxes but have not also filed tax returns for 2011 and 2012, the IRS may hold onto the refund until you file those subsequent returns. Also, past refunds will be applied to any amounts you still owe to the IRS or your state tax agency, and may be used to offset unpaid child support or past-due federal debts, such as student loans. Another good reason to consider going back and filing a previous year’s tax return: the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). Chances are, if the reason you didn’t file a return was because you didn’t earn enough to owe taxes, you may have been eligible for the EITC, a “refundable” tax credit for low to moderate income working taxpayers. (“Refundable” means that if you owe less in tax than your eligible credit, you not only pay no tax but also get a refund for the

difference.) As an example, for tax year 2010, a married couple filing jointly with three or more qualifying children whose adjusted gross income was less than $48,263 were eligible for an EITC of up to $5,666. To find out how EITC works and whether you qualify, consult IRS.gov. For the rest of us, April 15 looms as the deadline for filing our 2013 taxes. At the very least you should request a filing extension by then; otherwise the penalty on any taxes you owe increases dramatically. Typically you’ll have to pay an additional 5 percent of taxes owed for each full or partial month you’re late, plus interest, up to a maximum penalty of 25 percent. However, if you file your return or request an extension on time, the penalty drops tenfold to 0.5 percent per month, plus interest. Bottom line: If you skipped filing a tax return in the last three years, go back and crunch the numbers – you may be pleasantly surprised by a hefty refund.

Home & Garden

Healthy & Beautiful Gardens Vines in the garden Linda McDonald-Cash Landscape Designer Special to the Valley News Hello fellow gardeners! Hope you’re enjoying the fantastic weather this month and remembering to water your plants, especially those in pots which can dry out quickly in this warm, dry weather. This week I’d like to talk a little about adding a vertical element to your garden and some of the varieties that I have found to do well here. Although the nights are chilly, the days are still quite warm and I believe many vines planted now will do well and really take off for you by late spring, early summer. I’d like to mention that there are many vertically-inclined types of plants, from climbing roses to English ivy, and how they do or do not attach themselves to your structure is important to know. Many will require strong support that you have to build, some have “tendrils” or “sticky pads” and will attach themselves, others you just have to tie to your trellis for support. Coral Vine, Antigonon leptopus – This is a great climbing vine for a large area that needs to be covered as it can grow to 40’ long. If I wanted to cover a chain link fence, this is the baby I’d pick! It’s a beautiful sight when in bloom

with lovely racemes of coral pink flowers dripping from it. It can take just about any soil, but is deciduous so will lose its leaves in winter, which is good if you want to let the sun in at that time. This one has tendrils to twine around whatever you provide. Lilac Vine, Hardenbergia violaceae – This beautiful lilac flowering vine is evergreen for the most part and flowers all winter long, which is a real bonus for those of us who would like to see some winter color. It needs support, can grow to 15 feet and is very tolerant of soils. It can take partial shade also. It needs tying up to trellis or structure. There is also a shrub form of this plant available, I’ll let you know how it does, I just bought one. Bougainvillea – I almost didn’t put this on the list, but it has a tropical feel to it and many people want that so it’s here. I, personally, don’t much care for that bright magenta/ fuchsia colored one which seems to be everywhere, but that may just be me. There are many varieties and colors to choose from however. There are thorn-less varieties, so look for them. They are native to Brazil, so for the most part they are not for the desert – they don’t like frost much, but will usually come back if they do get some damage. The variety “Thai Delight” is an

Trumpet Creeper – Campsis radicans

especially beautifully colored one to look for – white with a blush of pink. They come in many different sizes so just make sure to read the labels when purchasing at the nursery to see ultimate size. You will need to provide support for these. Climbing Cecille Brunner, Rosa – This is a beautiful climbing rose, all of which needs support and tying, with small, sweet smelling pink roses literally covering the plant in spring. It has a sporadic re-bloom and then another smaller bloom in fall. This is gorgeous trained over a pergola or trellis, as is Lady Banks Rose, a “species” rose with tiny yellow flowers that will scramble, climb, and cover just about anything with a little help from you. South African Jasmine, Jasminum angulare – This is one of the best of the jasmine family. Its flowers are much longer than j. polyanthum and can take the heat. It is an evergreen vine also, twining, needs support. J. polyanthum is not a bad choice mind you, it flowers in late winter though and the fragrance is to die for, so you could have one of

each if you so desire. Neither are picky about soil. Trumpet Creeper, Campsis radicans, Bignonia radicans or Campsis tagliabuana – These are fantastic tropical looking vines, fast growing, semi-evergreen, prefers to be well watered, aerial rootlets similar to ivy that will attach to any surface, so be careful where you place this one. Large orange/ red or salmon colored trumpet shaped blooms – you will have lots of hummingbirds with this vine in the yard, I guarantee it! Honeysuckle, Lonicera supervirens ‘Trumpet Honeysuckle’ or L. Americana ‘Pams Pink’ – I prefer these two varieties as they don’t get quite as “out of control” as Japanese Honeysuckle which is planted a lot around these parts on slopes, etc. Both varieties, Trumpet and Pam’s Pink, have darker colored flowers that attract hummingbirds and need tying and support, can take partial shade and Pam’s Pink prefers it in the Inland Empire.

A beginner’s guide to reptiles as pets INLAND EMPIRE – Dogs and cats may be the most popular pets, but reptiles have their share of admirers as well. Reptiles can make great pets, and they may be ideal for children or novice pet owners. Unlike cats or dogs, many reptiles need a very specific environment to thrive. That includes some sort of UV light, a warming stone and particularly hot conditions. Reptiles and amphibians are coldblooded animals, meaning their body temperatures fluctuate based on the conditions of their environment. They will require an external heating source to stay comfortable. Certain reptiles may be better for beginners than others. Here is a look at some popular reptilian pets and what is necessary to care for them. Bearded dragon: This animal

hails from Australia and may grow up to two feet in length, most of which is in the tail. These lizards will need an appropriate housing structure, which should be a 55-gallon tank for the average-sized single male dragon. They require special light bulbs to absorb vitamins. Dragons are omnivorous, so you will have to provide both plant and animal food sources. Even though they come from arid conditions, spray the tank with water each day to provide them with a water source, as they will not drink from a bowl. Dragons are hardy and can endure even if some mistakes in care are made early on. Green anole: Also known as the American chameleon, green anoles are another popular starter pet. Anoles are inexpensive, which

John and Audrey

makes them a great choice for firsttime reptile owners. Anoles can be easy to care for if you meet the right requirements. They need a high-humidity environment and daily misting. These reptiles also like to climb, so you will need to prepare the cage accordingly with a tight-fitting lid and a structure they can scale. While a male and female and even two females can be kept together, never put two males together, as they will fight and likely kill each other. Gecko: The leopard gecko can be a great lizard for beginners. Thanks to its small size and modest needs, a gecko does not need a large tank to live in. Geckos are also tolerant to handling and can grow accustomed to frequent touching. Keep in mind that geckos are nocturnal, which means they are most active in the evening. Invest in a special reptile light designed for viewing in the dark so that you do not interfere with the animal’s sleep-wake cycle. Also, try not to stress or frighten the leopard gecko. It has the ability to drop its tail if feeling threatened, which can put unnecessary stress on the animal. Newt: Newts are almost exclusively aquatic or require highhumidity levels. You will need a tank with an area of sloped land for eating and sleeping. Another area should be filled with water for immersion. Newts are generally a pet that should be observed rather than handled, as they have sensitive membranes or toxic skin. Colorful newts can be enjoyable to watch and require little care besides water changes and feeding. Reptiles can make interesting and relatively maintenance-free pets. People looking for ideal starter pets may want to skip the furry in favor of the scaly.
