One woman’s journey affects lives of many

Kim Harris Special to the Valley News

When it comes to strong women making a difference, many names come to mind. Maya Angelou, Oprah Winfrey and even Madonna have all championed causes to empower people in their local communities and around the world. While there are many women who work tirelessly on thousands of causes to make the world a better place, in honor of Mother’s Day, The Valley News decided to take a look at one local woman whose efforts make a difference in the lives of many. That woman is Judy Harter, one of the co-founders of

All From The Heart, a 501(c)3 really well.” Harter started All From The supporting disabled veterans not just in the Temecula Valley but all Heart along with Kelly Shirey who owns Premier Marketing and Valof Southern California.

All four of her kids grew up taking part and volunteering with the different programs.

Truax Building opens

Class ‘A’ office space to attract national businesses Paul Bandong Staff Writer “It was a long time coming…a lifetime dream for me,” said Bernie Truax II, building owner and developer. “It has been in my brain for 40 years and we stayed true to the dream. We bought the property eight years ago and it has been in construction for two years. Now the building will be our headquarters.” At the ribbon-cutting, Truax mentioned construction milestones that coincided with family birthdays. The ground-breaking occurred two years ago on his son’s (Bernie III) birthday, April 25. They topped steel on his (Bernie II) birthday, April 26. And finally, the building dedication and ribboncutting occurred on April 29, 2014, his grandson’s (Bernie IV) 14th birthday.

“It’s a great day for Temecula!” remarked City Manager Aaron Adams. “This is the culmination of lots of economic development success. Mr. Truax has made a significant commitment to business and jobs. This is what we envision as an example of the development of downtown.” “This represents more growth for Old Town Temecula,” said Al Rubio, board member for the Temecula Chamber of Commerce. “The architecture fits in with the existing community.” Peg Moore, chairwoman of the Old Town Local Review Board and a member of the very first Temecula City Council (1989-92), envisioned this type of building back in the 1980s. “It’s absolutely gorgeous and a great addition to Old Town.”

Organic disease and pest control Linda McDonald-Cash Landscape Designer Special to the Valley News Hello fellow gardeners! I thought this would be a good time to discuss problems we might incur in the garden, either now or soon. After putting in all the hard work that we do, we certainly don’t like to watch it all disappear due to disease or pests, and since I’m against toxins in the environment – I use organics when necessary – I will tell you about a few here today.

Business Juggling a career and new motherhood The role women play in society and within their own households has changed dramatically over the last half-century. According to Pew Research Center analysis of the Decennial Census and American Community Surveys Integrated Public Use Microdata Sample files, in 1960 just 10.8 percent of married mothers were the primary earners in households that included children under the age of 18. That figure rose steadily over the next 50 years, reaching 40.4 percent by 2011.

Hard News Soccer coach who sought sex with player sentenced MURRIETA – A former Murrieta Valley High School girls’ soccer coach who tried to coax a player into having sex with him was sentenced on May 3 to three months in jail and three years probation. Daniel Ryan Kelly, 28, of Temecula pleaded guilty in February to attempted unlawful intercourse with a minor. Under a plea agreement negotiated between the prosecution and defense, Riverside County Superior Court Judge Albert Wojcik dismissed a felony count of arranging to meet a minor for purposes of illicit activity and a misdemeanor count of annoying or molesting a child under 18-years-old. Wojcik imposed the sentence stipulated under the plea deal. According to the District Attorney’s Office, the defendant was arrested on Jan. 28, 2013, following an investigation into his interactions with a 16-year-old girl. The youth, identified only as Jane Doe, was a member of the Murrieta Valley High School girls’ junior varsity soccer team. Kelly was a walk-on coach, but did not teach at the school, according to police. Prosecutors allege that Kelly took an interest in the victim and began communicating with her regularly via phone calls and texting. When the youth confided that she was feeling a lot of stress at home, the defendant told her that one way to alleviate her stress was to have

sex, according to a trial brief filed by Deputy District Attorney Julie Baldwin. “Defendant told Jane Doe that if she wanted to talk about sex with him...to use a ‘code word,’ either ‘Training’ or ‘Workout’ with a capital letter, and he would understand that to mean she was referring to sex,” Baldwin wrote. Kelly gave the girl a ride to a soccer tournament in Anaheim, and along the way, told her that when he was younger, he dealt with anxiety by engaging in sexual intercourse, according to the brief. When the defendant persisted in broaching the subject, the victim began to feel “uncomfortable” and told friends – including an adult – about what was happening, Baldwin said. She said the information was passed to Murrieta police detectives, who had the victim make a “pretext” phone call to see if Kelly would make any admissions that could be recorded. The conversation led to Kelly arranging to rendezvous with the girl outside a Temecula restaurant, with a plan to go from the eatery to an RV, where the defendant could start “Training” with the teenager, according to the brief. Detectives arrested Kelly as he waited for the youth. During an interview with investigators, Kelly “admitted that he had a lapse of judgment,” the brief states.

Pipe bomb suspect pleads guilty RIVERSIDE – A parolee indicted for planting pipe bombs near his ex-girlfriend’s Palm Springs home pleaded guilty to a felony on May 5. Edward Allen Costa, 49, was indicted in federal court in September on six counts of possessing unregistered destructive devices in the discovery of some homemade bombs in early May 2012. He pleaded guilty to one of those counts and faces up to 10 years in federal prison. Sentencing is scheduled for July 14 at the federal courthouse in Riverside, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Costa, who lived in Desert Hot Springs, pleaded guilty in 2012 to being a felon in possession of a firearm and was sentenced to a year in prison in that case. In August 2013, he left a halfway house in Rubidoux, where he was finishing his sentence, and was arrested in November by the Banning police and the FBI. The first pipe bomb was found May 8, 2012, with four more discovered May 10 and another on May 12, most of them in the vicinity of North Indian Canyon and San Rafael drives, according to Palm Springs police. Explosives charges were filed against Costa in June 2012, but were dropped for lack of evidence. FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents continued to investigate the case, and Costa was indicted while a fugi-

tive last year. BATFE Agent Adam Rudolph testified during a June 2012 detention hearing for Costa that while searching the convicted felon’s residence, federal agents discovered four marijuana plants, a flare gun, about 30 12-gauge shotgun shells, gunpowder and a metal end-cap. Costa also had some methamphetamine in his pocket, Rudolph alleged. The agent testified some of the material was similar to that used in the pipe bombs. A Palm Springs woman told police Costa – her daughter’s exboyfriend – “was manufacturing the devices because she had seen PVC piping at his residence on numerous occasions,” according to an arrest warrant affidavit filed by Clinton Kehr, a BATFE agent. When authorities went to Costa’s house on Pomelo Drive on May 11, 2012, they saw blue pipe glue near the front door, according to Kehr. Costa told authorities that he worked for a construction company, laying pipe and doing plumbing work, explaining why the items were at the house, according to court papers. The gun charge Costa pleaded guilty to in 2012 stemmed from a .357 Magnum revolver and 105 rounds of shotgun and pistol ammunition being seized at Costa’s Desert Hot Springs property.

Suspect arrested for allegedly stealing over $20,000 worth of alcohol MURRIETA – On May 2, Murrieta police officers responded to the Ralph’s Grocery Store, located at 23801 Washington Avenue, to investigate a theft of alcohol that had just occurred. Officers arrived at the Ralph’s Grocery store and contacted Dominique Clayton, 22, as he attempted to get into his vehicle. The suspect was arrested for burglary and several bottles of alcohol, worth $132, were recovered. During a search of the suspect’s vehicle $1,200 worth of alcohol, confirmed stolen from Ralph’s by

UPC barcode labels, was recovered in the trunk. The suspect was later identified in a series of alcohol thefts related to organized retail crime in which in excess of $20,000 worth of alcohol had been stolen during the last five months in four different Southern California counties. Ralph’s Organized Retail Crime Investigators became involved in the investigation and the suspect admitted to alcohol thefts for the last three years. The suspect was booked into the Southwest Detention Center.

Man convicted of killing Hemet teen in drive-by MURRIETA – A man who instigated and took part in the drive-by slaying of a 14-year-old Hemet boy was convicted on May 2 of firstdegree murder. A five-man, seven-woman jury in Murrieta deliberated roughly a day before finding 26-year-old Fernando Becerra guilty in the May 31, 2010, killing of Ruben Alfaro. Along with the murder count, jurors found true special circumstance allegations of firing a gun from a moving vehicle and committing a murder for the benefit of a street gang. Becerra is expected to receive life in prison without the possibility of parole when he is sentenced by Riverside County Superior Court Judge Albert Wojcik on May 30. According to the District Attorney’s Office, a dispute between the defendant and a group of youths and young adults gathered at the Depot Deli on Alessandro Street

precipitated the violence that culminated in Ruben being shot to death. Becerra, a member of the Trece street gang, allegedly traded insults with members of the group, several of whom belonged to a rival gang, according to investigators. One of the rivals – not Ruben – took a swing at Becerra, who immediately enlisted the support of his older sibling, then-24-yearold Michael Wayne Delacruz, said Deputy District Attorney Burke Strunsky. Delacruz, Becerra and four others piled into a Ford Explorer and drove to a residence at 130 Alessandro St., where they suspected the rivals were gathered, according to Strunsky. Strunsky said Delacruz armed himself with a 12-gauge shotgun and took a position in the rear of the Explorer. When the assailants reached the house around 1 a.m.,

Ruben and several of his friends were socializing outside, according to testimony from Delacruz’s trial. His girlfriend, Maria Lemus, stopped the vehicle, and Delacruz flung open the door and fired the shotgun, scatter shot ripping through Ruben’s abdomen, killing him on the spot. One of Ruben’s associates was also armed with a shotgun and fired into the Explorer, striking Delacruz underneath his right arm as the vehicle sped away. Based on witnesses’ statements and other evidence collected at the scene, Delacruz was arrested by Hemet police less than a week later. He was convicted of murder in February 2013 and sentenced to life in prison without parole. Lemus pleaded guilty last year to voluntary manslaughter and using a gun during a felony. She is expected to be sentenced in June to 15 years in prison.

Murrieta dad with alleged indoor cannabis lab arraigned MURRIETA – A Murrieta man accused of maintaining an indoor marijuana grow near where his children slept pleaded not guilty on May 1 to drug- related charges. David Alan Dortch, 48, was arrested last November following an investigation that began in April 2013. Dortch, who is charged with operating an illegal drug lab, appeared before Riverside County Superior Court Judge Elaine Johnson, who scheduled a May 29 felony settlement conference.

Dortch remains free on $30,000 bail. According to police, officers allegedly stumbled onto the illegal pot grow and DMT chemical manufacturing facility on April 20, 2013, after serving a search warrant at Dortch’s residence in the 20000 block of Matador Way. Investigators obtained the warrant as part of a vandalism investigation involving the defendant’s 12-year-old son, who was arrested for allegedly causing more than

$15,000 worth of graffiti damage throughout the city, according to Sgt. Don Weller. After officers discovered the alleged cannabis cultivation operation, they seized the contraband and turned it over to the California Department of Justice for forensic analysis, he said. The sergeant alleged the defendant was conducting illicit activity in the presence of his children. Dortch was located and arrested without incident seven months later.

Alleged child molester arraigned RIVERSIDE – A Moreno Valley man accused of molesting two children and trying to arrange meetings with a number of other youngsters pleaded not guilty on May 5 to felony charges. Roshawn O’Neill Davis, 20, could face life in prison if convicted of two counts of lewd acts on a child under 14, seven counts of communicating with a minor with the intent to commit a sexual offense and one count of possessing child pornography, as well as sentence-enhancing allegations of being in possession of a firearm during a felony and targeting multiple children in a sex crime.

Davis appeared before Riverside County Superior Court Judge Helios Hernandez, who scheduled a May 14 felony settlement conference and kept the defendant’s bail at $2 million. Davis, who is being held at the Southwest Detention Center in Murrieta, was arrested April 1 following a sheriff’s investigation that began Feb. 10. Sgt. Aaron Kent said a sheriff’s deputy at an undisclosed Moreno Valley middle school was alerted to explicit images, possibly of students, being posted to a social media website. “Investigators conducted a

lengthy investigation into the source of the inappropriate images and located several juvenile victims, who were lured and assaulted by the suspect using social media,” Kent said earlier, without identifying a specific site. According to the sergeant, a search warrant was executed at Davis’s home in the 16600 block of Saddlebrook Lane, culminating in the seizure of incriminating evidence. Davis was arrested without incident. According to court records, the defendant has a misdemeanor conviction for trespassing.

Woman accused of causing fatal crash enters plea MURRIETA – A Murrieta woman accused of killing a motorist and injuring her passenger in a DUI crash triggered when the defendant knocked over a sign in a construction zone pleaded not guilty on May 1 to gross vehicular manslaughter. Yadira Gonzalez, 38, could face 15 years in prison if convicted of killing 40-year-old Emma Araujo of Long Beach and severely injuring the woman’s older sister in a Nov. 3 wreck in San Jacinto. Gonzalez appeared before Riverside County Superior Court Judge Judith Clark, who scheduled a felony settlement conference in the case for May 8 and set the defendant’s bail at $125,000. Gonzalez is being held at the Smith Correctional Facility in Banning. Along with the manslaughter count, she is charged with DUI resulting in injury and multiple sentence-enhancing great bodily

injury allegations. On the night of the wreck, Gonzalez was headed eastbound in her Chrysler PT Cruiser when she slammed into a flashing arrow board mounted on an unhitched trailer. According to sheriff’s officials, the sign was directing motorists to merge into the right lane because of construction-related closures on the roadway. Gonzalez – whose blood-alcohol level was .20, more than twice the legal limit to operate a motor vehicle – ran into the sign and continued east, according to the District Attorney’s Office. Araujo was going west at the same time in her Toyota Sienna and had no time to react when the sign toppled onto the hood of her car, plunging through the windshield and shearing off the SUV’s upper frame, inflicting massive

head trauma to the victim and her sister, who survived and has since recovered, prosecutors said. Araujo was pronounced dead at the scene. Gonzalez went about 500 yards before pulling to the side of the road with a flat tire, according to investigators. Deputies arrested her a short time later. An extensive investigation was conducted to ensure the defendant’s car did not have a mechanical flaw that might have contributed to the wreck, and to determine whether the placement of the sign had anything to do with it. Gonzalez posted a $50,000 bond after her arrest in November and remained free until her arraignment today, when she was taken into custody by deputies at the Southwest Justice Center.

Police arrest San Diego resident in connection with Lake Elsinore robbery MURRIETA – Officers from the San Diego Police Department arrested a 33-year-old man Friday, May 2 in connection with a robbery that happened in Lake Elsinore at the end of last week, a Sheriff’s official reported. Aramco Lintag of San Diego was arrested after police utilized leads from a stolen credit card to find him. The robbery happened shortly before 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 26 in the area of Sunrise Drive and

Grape Street in Lake Elsinore, and a female resident of the apartment there was held at gun point. The man wielding the gun was described as a “light-skinned Asian or Hispanic male who fled in a silver Lexus SUV,” according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s report. Investigators from the Lake Elsinore Police Department assumed the investigation and learned the victim’s cards were being used at retail stores in Temecula and Murrieta, according to Lt. Zach Hall.

The leads were used to determine Lintag’s identity. After officers were able to attain information on Lintag, they informed the San Diego Police Department of the situation. Officers from San Diego Police Department’s Mid-City Division arrested Lintag and he was ultimately booked into the Southwest Detention Center in Murrieta for armed robbery, possessing stolen property and commercial burglary, according to Hall.

Prom and graduation season is here again - this is a time for celebration. Unfortunately, these happy occasions sometimes involve underage drinking which can result in tragedy. It is therefore critical that parents keep the lines of communication open when it comes to talking to their kids about the dangers of underage drinking

and drunk driving. Know who’s driving all evening: Are your kids or a friend driving, is there a designated driver, or will they be renting a limo? Make sure your teen has a way of contacting you and you can contact your teen; warn them of the dangers of talking or texting while driving.  Get the evening’s itinerary as well as a list of names and phone numbers of each person with your teen. Make sure your teen knows how to handle difficult situations; avoiding accepting a ride from a

love is the main ingredient that holds the key to happy, healthy children that grow into happy adults, who are well loved and know how to give back love. That in itself is a blessing. We hopefully will continue to be there for our children into adulthood and still provide them with compassion, comfort and love along the way. The fruits of motherhood continue on and we always will stay connected to them as we grow old. The connection will never be broken. We leave with them our legacy. Hopefully, it’s a positive one, full of cherished memories. Those lessons we teach our children are valuable, more than we know! Let’s celebrate Mother’s Day with love and respect for our wonderful moms. She deserves to be shown appreciation and gratitude.

through the journey of life we also walk right beside them on a spiritual level, giving them divine guidance and love along the way. We face all their hurts and disappointments as well as their accomplishments and success. If we truly realize how much we influence our children we’d choose our words more carefully and we’d understand how our words do affect them in a profound way. We sometimes may not realize that words have power. If we want to have self-assured children that grow up with confidence and high self-esteem, then we need to speak in a positive, uplifting manner. If we provide a positive, encouraging, compassionate home, then the outcome of our parenting skills will be returned to us by having successful, motivated, happy children.  The joy of motherhood can be the best feeling you’ve ever experienced. Each one of our children is truly a beautiful gift. Being a good mom is also a gift in return, where

Brenda McBride Special to the Valley News   There are endless blessings that come to us by being moms. Each blessing we receive is priceless and can’t be measured. Motherhood is a gift in itself, in so many beautiful ways. Many times in life, the most profound and beautiful blessings are those that are felt from within. Being a good mom holds a huge responsibility. Our role is endless with an abundant amount of things we do to encourage and to provide a good upbringing for our children.  As mothers, we try our best to give the most we can. Each one of us who are mothers should be respected and held high in regards for who we are. Many times, we feel as though we’re not fully appreciated or acknowledged for all we do. Before we became moms, we had the freedom to do whatever we choose. But we chose to become moms and to put our children’s needs before ours as we give our all to them. The importance of a mother is very much overlooked. We hold them close to our hearts when they’re babies, and wipe their tears as they grow through the years. The strong, powerful bond that connects a child to their mom can never be broken. A mother feels endless love for her children and most of us moms give unconditionally, without expecting anything back in return.  The strong emotions we feel are endless. As our children walk

how to work with the pastel chalk. “Pastels have richer colors than Sidewalk Chalk,” stated organizer Melody Brunsting. “The pastels we provide are smaller, harder, and create vibrant works of art on asphalt.” Reservations are not required. Chalk is provided but participants are encouraged to wear sunscreen, a hat, and bring some form of knee pad. The Old Town Temecula Street Painting Festival is June 20-22 on Main and Mercedes Streets. Over 100 muralists and fine artists create giant pastel murals on Main Street and Mercedes in Old Town Temecula during the event.   Families, children, and beginners join in the creative endeavor in the

family section where more than 1,800 smaller squares are blocked out for spectators to paint with pastels on the asphalt. Street painters will start the creative process on Friday, June 20 at 5 p.m. with most not finishing until 3 p.m. Sunday, June 22. “The use of design, color, layering and blending for depth is no different than any other fine art form with street painters. The issue is the rough nature of the asphalt and its ability to absorb the chalk, making it stick and making paintings 12 feet by 10 feet in a little less than 24 hours,” Brunsting explained. “For the artist, it is performance art at its best. Over 1,000 people an hour view the artwork during the day.”

Old Town Temecula will also have artists painting on traditional surfaces of canvas and paper during the Ralph Love Plein Air Festival. Scattered around town, plein artists will capture scenes as they occur. The term “en plein air” is a French expression meaning “in the open air” and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Ralph Love was a 20th Century American painter (1907-1992) known for his plein air landscapes. He was hired to adapt his paintings to the creation of dioramas for the Living Desert Museum in Palm Desert. In the mid-1950s Love opened a studio in Old Town Temecula called the Art Shack where he sold his art and taught art classes. The location is now the Baily’s Old Town Dining courtyard. Street Painting and Plein Air Festival applications are available at the City of Temecula as well as online at  temeculacalifornia.com. Interested artists may also call Melody at  (951) 678-1456 to have an application mailed.   CORRECTION

Temecula Council Members Michael Naggar (left) and Chuck Washington were present at the Temecula Special Games and addressed a crowd of over 500 during opening ceremonies.

GAMES from page A-1 “It’s the athletes that make the games special,” Washington commented. After opening ceremonies, each athlete was paired with a volunteer to help them engage in sportsrelated activities of their choice. There were more than 20 noncompetitive activities offered such as horseshoes, mini golf, running, bowling and martial arts. “This is a great way to spend the day,” said Greg Berry of Menifee. His children Layla, 7, and James, 18, were participants. They have cerebral palsy and were aided by volunteers and their brothers Joseph, 16, and Gregory, 13. This is the second year that the Berry family has attended the games. Elizabeth Berry, Greg’s wife, prefers Temecula’s games over similar ones she’s attended in Perris. “I like this one a lot better,” she said. She explained that at Temecula’s games parents can mingle on the field and athletes can choose activities, but at Perris’s games parents have to stay in the football stands while athletes do activities that are selected for them. Sienna Schmolesley, 17, a Vista Murrieta High School student, was Layla’s volunteer. She believes that the games are an excellent opportunity for those with special needs to experience sports and have fun. “It’s really neat,” she said. Menifee resident Peter LozanoSanchez, 2, was one of the youngest athletes. His uncle Steve Castaneda of Temecula wore a t-shirt that said “Team Peter” and eight other family members were also there to cheer him on. “The volunteers here are great,” said Castaneda. “I love all the volunteers,” added Steve’s wife Liz Castaneda as she held her toddler nephew who has an intellectual disability. This year’s games were enhanced by a caregiver’s summit that took place next to the football field under a large tent. It featured light refreshments, lunch, speakers, live music and raffle prizes. “We wanted to include the caregivers,” said City Senior Recreation Leader Paula Worthington.

Naggar, who has a young son on the autism spectrum, lauded caregivers at the start of the summit. “I know what it takes,” he said. “I just want to say thank you.” Author and Independent Living Coach Amalia Starr spoke next about her struggles and triumphs as a caregiver for her disabled son. “You matter more than you know,” she said. Athletes were treated to pizza and fruit for lunch. They also received a medal and lots of applause at the end of the games to remember their experience.

Local TRUAX from page A-1 The outside of the building looks like a Hollywood movie set for “Dick Tracy” or a “Batman” sequel. The building façade and interior are a modern rendition of the classic 1920s art deco period with arched doorways, fluted columns and trim, inset tin ceiling squares, custom wainscoted and trimmed wall panels, hanging custom-made lamps, and so many more period-correct elegant touches everywhere one looks. “This was my favorite architectural period,” said Truax. “This is an exciting project!” exclaimed Joël Brodes, VP of real estate for Truax Development Group. “Class A office space should appeal to national types of businesses; it provides quality of construction and details, location, access, visibility, architecture that stands out, size and volume of space, technology infrastructure…it projects a certain image, a panache. As such, it represents a different list of potential tenants and a different approach to filling the space.” The building provides a mix of Class A office space with highvisibility retail below. “We are looking for unique concepts, boutique-type businesses, trends that will be successful that create more interest to drive the momentum of downtown energy and center of life,” said Brodes. “Office, and City Hall, will feed the retail, but retail will drive the traffic and the business in Old Town. We are looking for a holistic integration with the demographic of Temecula on the upswing.” The bottom floor will house a high-end restaurant (rumored to be Mediterranean cuisine); Brodes hopes to attract a bank for one of the spaces and unique retail businesses

HARTER from page A-1 “They were raised in it,” she said. “They have been volunteers since the very beginning.” Harter, who was named Riverside Woman of the Year for the Third District in 2012 and was the recipient of the Joan Sparkman Unity Award in 2013, said she believes it’s important to honor the sacrifices of the military. All From The Heart allows her to do that while providing support services to those in need. “There is never going to be enough done for what they have done for us. I think we take things like our freedoms for granted and that’s not ok,” she said. “This is the Lord’s plan, he has his hand on this in a big way and there is no greater honor than to be used as a vessel by the Lord.” In the current economy sometimes things can be tough for nonprofit agencies, but Harter says there is always support when she needs it,

for the others, perhaps high-end spa salons or organic food/juice bars. The second floor is still under construction, but they have already received interest for part of the floor from an international company doing business in 95 countries. They have generated a large number of leads of businesses interested in looking at the space. The entire third floor has already been leased to a technology firm, Cengage Learning out of Boston, Massachusetts. Cengage’s online learning division, “ed2go” already had offices in Temecula near the county library (off of Ynez Rd). The company is the largest publisher of digital and print textbooks for K-12 and colleges. They specialize in online learning and continuing education and partners with over 2,000 colleges and universities, including 1,100 of the 1,200 community colleges in the nation. A planned consolidation of their Ft Worth, Texas offices coincided with the completion of the Truax Building. “We were looking for a space that could accommodate high-tech development of our digital products,” said Brian Bales, director of marketing. “We really wanted to stay in Temecula and this was the only space that could work for us. We would have had to look in San Diego.” The access to Old Town restaurants and businesses was a huge attraction as well. The company’s space features an open collaborative working environment with white board walls and columns, open glass walls. There are only three offices, but the entire space is surrounded by glass windows, offering spectacular views from any vantage point. “Those are real wood windows and they open,” said Matt Reno,

founder of Reno Contracting, the firm responsible for the construction of this building as well as other Truax development projects. “When the dual-glazed windows are closed, you can’t hear the freeway.” A large investment was made in sound attenuation and energy efficiency with R-30 insulation used in the ceilings and walls. The 67,000 square foot building was built to the latest earthquake standards (revised from the Northridge quake) using steel-frame moment-frame structural systems. It should withstand a level 8 earthquake. The flooring systems consist of 3-1/2” of lightweight concrete over steel deck. Recycled rubber padding and recycled carpet squares complete the top layers. “This building would be a Silver LEEDS-certified project,” said Reno, referring to the energy savings and Title 24 compliance measures for “green” buildings. “We recycle everything that comes out of here.” Reno Contracting is ranked #64 in the nation for LEEDS certification. The building was partially financed using the EB-5 program, a US Visa program created by the Immigration Act of 1990 to spur foreign investment in the US to create local jobs. Individuals must invest at least $1,000,000 (or $500,000 in “Targeted Employment Areas”), creating at least 10 jobs for US workers (excluding the investor and their immediate family). In exchange, the foreign investor and their dependents receive conditional permanent resident visas. “Thirteen visas were approved for this project,” said Reno. The top floor will house the Truax Development offices and features a large conference room as

either from her 94-year-old mother Jeanne or her partner of seven years or “fella” as she likes to call him, KJ Leibee, who is a 100 percent disabled Vietnam veteran due to PTSD. “He spent 40 years isolated at 9,000 feet in New Mexico. He came off the mountain because his mom stroked, met me, stepped in and Wheels for Warriors was born. He’s all about giving back,” Harter said. “It’s my fella, me, a pick-up truck and a side yard.” Harter said all of the programs offered continue to grow as the need for services to the veterans continues to grow. During the first year, Support Our Troops served only eight families but in 2013, 44 families were included in the annual holiday party held at Quaid Temecula Harley-Davidson. Each member of the different families received $100 worth of gifts based on a wish list and every child in attendance received a bicycle or tricycle with their name on it.

Currently there are 17 names on the waiting list for a power wheelchair under the Wheels for Warriors Program and there is no shortage of veterans who are in need. The program just gifted its 215th wheelchair on Monday, May 5. “We pick up used power chairs, to date recycling over $80,000 worth of medical equipment. We refurbish them and put in new batteries, shine them up and gift them,” Harter said. “All 215 of our recipients have been denied chairs by the VA.” The need for PTSD treatment also continues to grow and Divine Equine meets that need, currently serving 25 veterans who have all been vetted for the program that uses a pair of horses, Eden and Apollo, a descendent of Secretariat, to help them cope with the issues they face. The horses are owned by Bonsall resident and therapist Michelle Price. “One hundred percent of our

well as a large wrap-around patio/ balcony offering 360-degree views of downtown and the freeways and surrounding mountains. “These are spectacular views everywhere you look,” said Carinna Coram, chairwoman of the Old Town Merchants Association. “I have never seen Old Town from this perspective.” “We envision using this for fundraising events,” said Truax. “It’s spectacular!” gushed Mayor Maryann Edwards. “Disneyland quality – it meets every expectation and raises the bar on the quality of commercial property in Old Town. This is a signature piece right across from City Hall. This type of building will spur growth and jobs, jobs, jobs.” In fact, ed2go has already hired 26 additional people for this office and plans to grow to 118 in the next 18 months. Look for additional development downtown as Truax’s plans call for a four-phase project, including a highend movie theatre complex. It may have taken 40 years, but this building is proof dreams can come true.

vets come from the Temecula Vets Center,” said Harter. “They are in therapy. They know they have PTSD and they want to get better so they come out and work with the horses and the therapists and KJ and their lives change.” Working on a project of this magnitude can be tiring at times but Harter said the end result is always worth the effort. “I love the giving back part and

honestly being grateful for our freedoms kept running through my veins. I think it was just a good fit; I have to say it was a divine appointment. It’s just what I am supposed to do,” she said.

Rasmussen explained that Mormons do volunteer work the fourth Saturday of April.  “Nationwide the Mormon Church calls this our ‘Day of Service’ for the communities we all live in across the country,” he said. “It’s pretty cool. We get our members of all ages out there and have fun helping others.” Rasmussen added that they plan to include other churches and community members each year and expand to do more service throughout the year. “We created a Facebook page called ‘Murrieta Helping Hands’ and will continue to use this throughout the year for other service opportunities in the community,” he said. “It is meant to be for the whole city to participate together.” Tricia Layne, who helped spread buckets of mulch at the park, said that the city provides the supplies. The mulch was made mostly from last year’s Christmas trees that the city recycled.  The food drive at the library collected enough goods to fill almost all of the food banks at Nazarene Church, Murrieta Methodist Church, Promise Lutheran Church, The Rock Church and St. Martha’s Catholic Church. Rasmussen said the churches were extremely appreciative. The painting volunteers tried to paint 69 monument signs, but were only able to complete about half of them by early afternoon. The rest of the signs will be painted by fulltime Mormon missionaries.  “There is a group of them serving in the Murrieta area and each week they spend time doing service,” Rasmussen said. “Currently, they work with the Murrieta city manager and will do various projects for the city every week. We will utilize this team of missionaries to complete the monument painting project over the course of their

Main Street Lake Elsinore gets community-sized makeover LAKE ELSINORE – Main Street Lake Elsinore is not what it used to be – not even what it was just a couple weeks ago. That’s because the city’s Clean Extreme community service project on April 26 gave the historic venue a sprucing up with paint, weed trimming, flower planting, window washing, rock-spreading, trash hauling and a dose of good neighboring. Beginning at 7 a.m. with a gathering of some 600 plus volunteers, sponsors, city staff and church leaders, work crews were organized, then embarked at 8 a.m. to tackle more than 50 pre-determined projects. The tasks were located primarily along Main Street, but also included select assignments on Spring Street, Heald Ave., a community garden in Rosetta Canyon and mobile home parks on the west side of the lake. “­­­­­­­­­­­­Clean Extreme was created to bring together our community to serve and improve an area of our city,” said Nicole Dailey, management analyst for the City of Lake Elsinore. “The results far exceeded our expectations and we are so thankful for the hundreds of volunteers who helped make a difference in our community.”

Lake Elsinore Hotel was considered an eyesore before the April 26 Clean Extreme project.

Much of the success of the project was due to extensive planning, spearheaded by Dan Lincoln, the project’s operations manager from the Lamb’s Fellowship Church. However, he suggested the success of the event was due to the unified effort. “What struck me,” said Lincoln, “was the connection between the city, agencies, residents and the faith community. It could not be done without everyone doing their part.” Those driving up or down Main couldn’t help but notice the sea of

green T-shirts, touting the “Clean Extreme” logo and so many volunteers of all ages. Joining in on the project for the first time, the Lake Elsinore Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provided nearly 200 volunteers for the day. Church Director of Public Affairs Sara Holmes, said, “It has been inspiring to witness what can be accomplished when people are willing to sacrifice a little of their time and talents for the greater good of their community.”

Volunteers work to improve the look of the Lake Elsinore Hotel.

Real Estate

Six reasons why now is the perfect time to sell your home the Temecula-Murrieta Valley want to make the move after school gets out for the summer and long before it starts up again in the fall; making May the perfect month to purchase a new home, open escrow and get settled and acclimated to their new surroundings, giving the children an opportunity to make new friends and feel at home before heading off to their new schools in September.

John Occhi, Mike Mason Special to the Valley News

The market moves now Traditionally (again there are always going to be exceptions) 60 percent of all home sales take place between May and August each year. The savvy seller who puts their home on the market in May maximizes their exposure in the marketplace. As spring turns to summer, more and more homes will enter the market, competing with buyers’ attention. List your home now and you stand the best chance of more showings with more qualified buyers who are more likely to bring you a full market offer. The last thing you want is for buyers to shelve their 2014 plans to relocate to Temecula, as they get ready for going back to school and the holiday season.

Anyone who has a Temecula house they want to sell this year and has been waiting for that “perfect time” to put their home on the market, well, that moment has arrived. Let me explain why right now is the perfect time to sell. Buyer motivation Spring has traditionally been the busiest time for real estate sales across the country. Of course there are always exceptions to this rule – primarily in resort areas. For example, the Palm Springs area (Coachella Valley) market always heats up in the fall as the snowbirds begin their migration from northern destinations that will soon be covered in a blanket of snow. Temecula and Murrieta typically start to see more real estate action when schools take their Spring Break which typically coincides with the Easter holiday. Folks come to the area to visit with friends and family during the holiday period and start to mull over the possibility of living in a community as beautiful and affordable as ours. Being a family-oriented community, most who want to move to

Mortgage rates Many predictions from last year would have us at a 5 percent interest rate by now with expectations that they will be at 6 percent or higher by the end of the year. As of the time this article is being prepared, 30 year fixed rates are being advertised* just over 4 percent and a 5 year fixed adjustable mortgage

The

can be had for under 3 percent with the right credit and down payment. However, anyone considering purchasing a home knows that these rates can change overnight. Buyers today are poised and ready to hit the streets with approved financing in hand – wanting to buy a home before they shoot up and find themselves left behind. Pricing is everything Last year saw a spike in the local real estate market jumpstarting the local economy with close to a 25 percent increase in real estate values. Multiple offers, over list prices were the norm and not the exception a year ago. While many homeowners today have fallen into the trap of believing that the trend should repeat itself, there just has not been anything other than overly ambitious agents and hungry sellers fueling this dream. The truth is a huge percentage of homes that are selling are selling for significantly less than their initial list price. The longer a home sits on the market overpriced, the less likely that they will receive a fair market offer. Buyers will feel a sellers’ desperation to sell and come in with low-ball offers justifying their action with the belief that there must be something wrong with the home, otherwise it would have already have sold. When pricing a home today, forget about what you think its worth. Don’t spend time looking on Zillow, Trulia or any of the other countless websites that offer an automated opinion of value. Rather, work with a trusted REALTOR and carefully analyze the last 60 days of sold properties similar to yours and close to yours. At another time, I would suggest also looking at the active listings in the MLS; however today, many are so over-priced that it just skews the numbers. Remember, the value is what someone is willing to pay for it – it has nothing to do with your plans, dreams or expectations. Bidding wars As mentioned above, today’s market is not seeing multiple offers – buyers are not bidding prices up, thinking they have to snag a home now before they get shut out of the market. My own predictions for the housing market over the next

several years will see a modest 5 percent to 6 percnt increase in value. This is a traditional market and if you were to look at the long term value of real estate, you’ll discover that this is very typical – it’s just that we went through some crazy times in both directions over the last 10 to 15 years. A 5 percent difference in price a year from now won’t make a big difference to buyers, so they are not in the same rush they were in a year ago. Technology is more important than ever Every year society as a whole experiences great leaps in technology, and for the average consumer I don’t think it is any more prevalent that in the world of real estate. In the past, technology for REALTORS focused on their websites and MLS searches. It was important to syndicate their listings so that individual homes could be found.

Today, it’s all about mobile devices, smart phones and tablets. Make certain that your agent has the necessary tools and technologies available to make your house jump out of a 2” smart phone screen. Mediocre photos, more than ever, will cripple your chance of achieving your 2014 real estate goals. Call us today and get the information you need to make the right decision.

INLAND EMPIRE – Beautiful spring and summer nights make for great opportunities to invite some friends over for a starry soiree under the nighttime sky. Unlike house parties at which guests will be spending most of their time indoors and in various rooms throughout the house, outdoor parties are often limited to smaller areas, such as patios. That can make things much less taxing on hosts and hostesses, who won’t have much prep work to do to get an outdoor hosting area ready for guests. But even an impromptu party requires planning and a little elbow grease before guests arrive. The following are a few areas to address before guests arrive for an outdoor get-together.

hosting an outdoor party, so give the grill a thorough cleaning before the first guests arrive. Nothing brings a party to a halt like hunger, and guests may begin to grow antsy if they are not served food in a reasonable amount of time. If using a propane grill, check to make sure the tanks are full while in the process of cleaning the grill. Running out of propane is a summer soiree faux pas, so it’s best to keep an extra tank handy just to be safe. Clear the entryway to the home. Guests will likely be using the same entryway over and over again during the party, so focus on cleaning this entryway so guests don’t trip or have to jump over toys on their way to an indoor restroom. Once the entryway has been cleared of potential tripping hazards, make sure the indoor path to the restroom is clear as well.

DCH Auto Group, local businesses team up to give students their first prom in 20 years TEMECULA – After nearly 20 years, students at Creekside Continuation High School in Murrieta had a prom thanks to some help from DCH Auto Group dealerships in Temecula and a network of community partners. When Erin Ramsey, business development center manager for DCH Auto Group in Temecula, learned from students at Creekside Continuation High School about their desire to have a prom after 19 years of not holding one, she set to work leveraging DCH’s deep ties to the local community and formed a partnership of local vendors to make the prom happen. “Proms are a very important tradition for high school students,”

said Erin. “So when I found out that the students from Creekside wanted one after 19 years, and since we work so closely with them through our teen safe driving program, I knew DCH could find a way to help.” While DCH Auto Group, with 27 car dealerships in California, New Jersey and New York, is known for delivering happy car buying experiences to its customers, it’s not unusual for the auto retailer to spread some of that happiness to other members of the community. DCH is committed to giving back to the communities in which its dealerships operate and employees and customers live. DCH dealerships work closely with local

high schools, just like Creekside, specifically with school chapters of Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), to educate teen drivers about the dangers of distracted driving. Working with Creekside’s SADD chapter faculty advisor, school counselor Tami Dobbins, Erin attained permission from the school’s administration, secured Monteleone Meadows to host the event, organized local vendors – like Studio 94 Photography and DJ Steppin’ Out In Style – to donate their time and services, created invitations and even organized a dress drive using social media. “We turned the faculty lunchroom into a dress shop,” Erin

added. “On Friday, the day of the prom, we [turned] part of the school into a hair salon. Between DCH and our other partners, this is going to be the best night of these kids’ lives.” DCH team members chaperoned and performed various jobs at the May 2 prom, and two DCH employees who did not have the ability to attend their own proms

attended as well. “Without DCH’s support, this prom would never have come to fruition,” said Jared Rogers, principal of Creekside High School. “We are extremely grateful to Erin and the entire DCH team for supporting our efforts.” For one night at least, DCH stood for “Delivering Creekside High School’s Prom Happiness.”

CSU San Marcos to address dangers of drowsy driving May 15 TEMECULA – California State University San Marcos in Temecula will be hosting an interactive “Dreaming and Driving” course designed to alert drivers to the hazards of, and remedies for, drowsy driving on Thursday, May 15 from 1 to 4 p.m. A sleep deprived person will involuntarily “micro sleep” for an average of five seconds. When traveling 55 miles per hour, a driver can travel more than the length of a football field “asleep” with no

control over their actions. “In some cases, driving sleep deprived may cause greater impairment than legal intoxication,” said Mike Schroder, Dean of Extended Learning at CSUSM. “This course is definitely something that everyone who drives a car can utilize, especially those that drive long distances or work long hours.” The Dreaming and Driving course will be taught by Joe Seitz, President of the Learning & Per-

formance Group, LLC. Steiz has more than 30 years of transportation and training experience, analyzing programs and developing and implementing performance improvement initiatives. He is a national speaker on safety, leadership, and transportation issues, and has recently presented this course at the Kentucky Public Transit Association Conference. To register or to learn more, visit  www.csusm.edu/temecula or call (760) 750-4020.

Japanese Festival celebrates 20 years of friendship May 17 TEMECULA – On May 17, the City of Temecula cordially invites residents to celebrate 20 years of friendship with sister city, Daisen, Japan. For more than two decades, residents of both Temecula and Daisen have traveled across the world to understand, enjoy, embrace, and respect each other’s cultures.

the Japanese culture for all to enjoy. There will be traditional food, entertainment, kid’s crafts, games, and demonstrations. Come by Temecula City Hall between the hours of 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to say hello to guests from Daisen.

exhibit and family-friendly cosplay event – the Art Cosplay Expo. Online sales will begin May 23. The Expo will be held in the Fall of 2014 at the Jefferson Recreation Center (The JRC), located at 41375 McCabe Court.

The Movie Review: “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” Robert T. Nickerson Special to the Valley News The modern summer time at the movies has developed a tradition where a superhero movie or two is released that can please both a general audience looking to be lost in a fantasy and a comic book crowd that’s counting to see if everything is properly represented. Before the 2000s, most of these adaptations took two different paths that separated these crowds – either something that’s more playful with bright colors like Superman or the original Spider-Man that’s self aware that it’s campy and silly. And then there’s the dark and dramatic route that Batman and The Crow took with an atmosphere that’s cold but stylish, and bolder character development. Most superhero movies today tend to go with the latter. The idea behind this is that with every caped crusader, there has to be some big epic story with how they got there and the dilemma they must be going through, doing their typical “saving the day” routine. The previous Spider-Man tril-

ogy had more of a campy route with occasional scenes of dramatic character arcs. The recent reboot of The Amazing Spider-Man gave our friendly neighborhood hero a re-imagining that was darker, but still the same wisecracker we loved. It took me by surprise, so it made sense that I was hyped to see where the story would go in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. So, what’s going on? The real question is, “What’s not going on?” as the movie tries to put a lot into its story. Peter Parker (played by Andrew Garfield) has settled into his role as New York’s favorite hero as he catches thieves, thwarts dangers, and saves an occasional life, including that of an electrical engineer named Max Dillon (played by Jamie Fox). What Spider-Man doesn’t know is that Max is a big fan of the web slinger and dreams of being just as important and wanted. An accident with electric eels causes Max to mutate into a living electric generator. His debut is met with disgust and horror. In a spectacular action sequence, Max calls

himself Electro and starts to destroy Times Square, finally releasing his personal anger with the world. You would think that Spider-Man would have enough trouble with this guy, but Peter also has to deal with discovering that his father may have been hiding top secret research work from evil, his best friend Harry Osborn (played by Dane DeHaan) returning to take over his dad’s company, a relationship with Gwen Stacy (played by Emma Stone), and even the beginning of submitting photos for The Daily Bugle newspaper. There’s a lot more plot to tell, but I don’t want to lose focus. That’s the biggest problem with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – it tries to tell a lot of story. Since they got the origin story out of the way in the previous film, I thought that this movie would be ready to give us something that was different from the previous trilogy. In truth, I found myself making a lot of comparisons to the okay-received Spider-Man 3. It shares the same problem of adding in too many villains and rushing most of the development

in place for uninteresting story and jokes. I can only blame the less than average screenplay as the acting here is really good. The material with Electro, with his back-story and the battle sequences, was so good that I don’t know why they simply didn’t settle on that for a movie. There’s nothing wrong with a superhero film that’s only 90 minutes long. I can tell that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a result of a director’s vision clashing with Sony’s corporate idea of setting up

a franchise. It never meshes enough for a solid story. I’ll give this two and a half comic book Electro’s out of five. This movie has impressive acting, impressive visuals, and impressive cinematography, but it’s badly put together story lacks true excitement that I got from the previous franchise. Ugh…it was close.

Sunbelt baseball teams shine at Diamond Showcase Temescal Canyon, Lakeside and Paloma Valley prevail in triple header

Temescal Canyon pitcher Sean Trimble gets the Valley News Diamond Showcase underway as he throws a complete game against Elsinore allowing one run on five hits while strikingout five as the Titans beat the Tigers 6-1.

JP Raineri, Paul Bandong Sports Writers The Diamond in Lake Elsinore once again played host this season to our local baseball teams for a triple header. This time it was the

Sunbelt League that got to take advantage of playing at the number one rated ballpark in the minor leagues. “This is the second portion of or high school triple header for 2014. We hosted the Southwestern

George Wilson takes the reigns as Murrieta Valley’s new head football coach New head coach looking to bring back stability to Nighthawk football Charles Mckee Sports Writer

Courtesy photo George Wilson, newly announced head coach at Murrieta Valley, is looking to bring back stability to Nighthawk football.

Murrieta Valley Athletic Director Darin Mott announced that George Wilson is the new head coach for the Nighthawk Football Program. Wilson was Murrieta Valley’s assistant head coach last season and replaces Vinny Fazio who guided the Nighthawks to a 6-4 record in 2013. Wilson is the third head coach for Murrieta Valley in three years. The Nighthawks lost Greg Ireland to retirement in 2012 and Coach Fazio to disagreements on the direction of Nighthawk football this season. “I am looking to bring stability to Nighthawk football,” said Wilson. He is familiar with the student athletes and has already assumed his duties as head coach. “I’m not really focused on last year. I want this current group of Nighthawks to be competitive this season.”

“We are extremely excited to have Wilson as the new head coach. He is an outstanding teacher and coach and our students and staff are pleased with the direction he is taking our program,” said Mott. Coach Wilson brings a tradition of winning football to Murrieta Valley. He intends to restore the Nighthawk’s reputation as a tough, punishing defensive team. “Our philosophy is to compete and play fast in everything we do,” said Wilson. “In the weight room, in drills, every moment we are on the field.” Wilson is a local football talent. He graduated from Paloma Valley High School and earned a political science degree from Cal State San Marcos. He has a masters degree from Azusa Pacific in education. Coach Wilson played football and started his coaching career at Paloma Valley. He moved on to

coach at Ridgecrest Burroughs. Soon afterwards Wilson was at Rancho Verde where he was the defensive coordinator. Rancho Verde went to three CIF Title games and won the CIF championship while Wilson coached there. The Mustangs won seven consecutive league titles and had 4 undefeated regular seasons. The school boasts sending three players to the NFL as well as having two in the draft this year. Wilson has been involved in assisting many players obtain Division 1 scholarships. The new head coach is not looking back, only forward. “I’m not really focused or concerned with last year’ said Wilson. “We have new coordinators on both sides of the ball and I’m looking forward to the 2014 season.

Healthy & Beautiful Gardens

Organic disease and pest control

Ladybugs are a beneficial insect to have in your garden. Courtesy photos

Linda McDonald-Cash Landscape Designer Special to the Valley News Hello fellow gardeners! I thought this would be a good time to discuss problems we might incur in the garden, either now or soon. After putting in all the hard work that we do, we certainly don’t like to watch it all disappear due to disease or pests, and since I’m against toxins in the environment – I use organics when necessary – I will tell you about a few here today. First and most importantly is to know that a healthy plant is your best defense. That means correct watering and healthy soil. The plants that usually get attacked by either fungus or pests are usually stressed due to heat, lack of water, too much water, not enough sun, etc. So always address those issues first. There are many types of dis-

eases that affect various plants and I can’t address them all here now, fungus is a big issue and there are many organic methods to deal with those. Roses are a big one for fungal diseases, from rust, powdery mildew to black spot, these diseases respond to several organic treatments. I use a mixture of baking soda, ½ c. to a gallon of water and a tablespoon of “Neem oil”, you can also add a tablespoon of a liquid soap such as Dr. Bronners, or a mild dish soap, mix well and spray. Make sure to cover all leaves on plants. If you “overhead water” with sprinklers, which I don’t recommend, this fungicide will wash off, so you might need to hand water with hose for a week, otherwise convert to drip irrigation. This mixture will also help kill off many pests and their eggs as a bonus. When it gets really hot out plants get stressed, especially those in terra cotta pots, and you may see them fading, shriveling up, and if

you look closely you may see very fine webbing on the bottom sides of your leaves – this is the spider mite. The fastest way to get rid of them is with a hard jet of water, as well as watering the plant more of course, also spraying with a Neem oil or liquid soap in water mixture. Be vigilant! If you’re dealing with caterpillars my recommendation is something called “Bt” or Bacillus thuringiensis – just ask for Bt at the garden center. It is basically beneficial organisms that caterpillars eat that disrupt their digestive systems and cause them to die. I also try to hand pick as many off as I can, it really helps believe it or not, and if you’re growing tomatoes you know how much damage can be done in just one night by them. Slugs and snails are an easy one with several ways to get rid of them. Place boards out at night where they have been seen when they are active. They will hide

under them. Pick the boards up in the morning and throw them in the trash. Bury a saucer full of flat beer in the garden where they frequent – both slugs and snails will be attracted to it and drown. Diatomaceous earth – one of my personal favorites – sprinkle around in the area they frequent, this is also good for those annoying “pillbugs” and it literally cuts them up as they crawl through it. You can buy a box of this at most nurseries or pool supply centers. One of my most annoying pests, indoors and out, has been a little fly called the “fungus gnat.” They usually come from the nursery and are already in the potting soil. They can destroy a greenhouse in no time. I have used yellow sticky traps to good advantage, along with setting out bowls of water to which I add a drop or two of liquid soap – they are attracted to the water, but then can’t fly away and drown.

In addition to these after the fact control methods, I highly recommend encouraging the many beneficial insects out there to live in your garden by providing sources of nectar for them. Ladybugs, praying mantis, and green lacewings are three of the top in my opinion. Many of these insects are available to purchase if you don’t see them in your garden already and need them. If you refrain from using toxic chemicals, you will usually see the beneficial insects coming in to feast. There are many plants that encourage them to stay in your garden as well – dill is a great one to grow for this. Have fun in your garden and as always I’m available for consultations and design work.

Tips for swimming pool safety, maintenance Have two pieces of safety equipment Every pool should have two essential pieces of safety equipment: a life ring (life preserver) with a diameter of at least 17 inches that can be thrown to help struggling swimmers stay afloat, and a safety hook, to pull people to safety. One should also consider keeping a phone at the pool while swimming, so if an emergency call needs to be made, it can be done quickly.

INLAND EMPIRE – The rains have gone and temperatures have started rising again – that means swimming pool season can’t be far off! Experts share a few handy tips to help pool owners keep them safe and looking great. Stay safe Watch the kids! Rule number one. Swimming pools are designed to be fun. But every year children drown or get seriously hurt in residential swimming pools – almost always because adults stop paying attention. Teach kids how to swim (parents/guardians should learn as well if they don’t know how). If a house opens directly into a pool, install a door-alarm to alert someone when a child opens it. If there isn’t already a fence between the house and pool, consider putting one up. Kids wander around a lot and can find their way into the pool even if they’re out of sight for only a minute.

When children are in the pool, always watch them. And remember, water wings, styrofoam “noodles” and other toys are not safety devices and children wearing them should not be left unattended. Check the fences For those who have a fence and self-closing gate around a pool, they should check to make sure the spaces between each of its pickets and between the bottom rail and the ground are no more than four inches apart and the fence is at least five feet tall so children and animals can’t squeeze through or climb over to get into an unattended pool. Make sure pool drain covers are visible and intact If one can’t get a clear look at their pool’s drain covers - the pool needs cleaning! If they are clearly visible, make sure they’re not broken or chipped and remind children not to play near them so they can’t get sucked in and trapped.

Repair any damage to decking, equipment and pool area Make sure pool ladders and pool railings are secure so people aren’t hurt when they rely on them to get in and out of the pool. Repair damage to decking to prevent people from tripping. Don’t swim when sick Chlorinating a pool only does so much. It’s important to keep

germs out of a pool. Practice good hygiene. Don’t allow swimmers who are experiencing diarrhea. If there is an accident in the pool, be sure to clear the pool and follow guidelines for proper cleaning of the water. Test pool water routinely Testing the chemical balance of the water in a pool is one of the most important things a person can do to make sure it’s up to par. That’s because that balance – which keeps the water disinfected, clean and safe – can be easily thrown out of whack by heavy use, hot weather, rain and lots of other things. To keep a pool safe, test the chlorine and pH levels at least twice a week and daily if possible. Skim, brush and vacuum a pool regularly There’s a lot of stuff out there that can get into a pool and make it look cloudy or green. Swimmers

can carry in sunblock, oils, and other items. There’s dust, sediment and leaves blowing in the air that can all make it a lot harder for a filtration system to keep things clean. So use a hand skimmer to clean a pool’s surface, brush the walls, and vacuum its floor often. Don’t forget to remove any leaves and debris in the skimmer baskets. Keep the deck clean It only stands to reason – the less mess there is on the deck surrounding a pool, the less stuff that can be blown or carried into it. A good sweeping will go a long way to keeping a pool looking pristine. Keep the pool filter clean If the pool has a cartridge-based filter, make sure to check, clean, or replace the filters when they’re dirty. If using a sand filter, make sure to backwash and clean the filter screens when they need it.

Pets Uncovering the mysteries of mixedbreed dogs INLAND EMPIRE – Welcoming a pet into a home can be a joyous event. Companion animals have a way of assimilating into a family rather quickly. Some prospective pet owners spend months researching the type of breed they prefer, while others prefer to adopt

mixed-breed dogs from a nearby animal shelter. Purebred and mixed breed dogs both make great pets. In fact, some experts will say mutts are preferable to certain pure breeds because they are less likely to carry genetic defects that may lead to illnesses

or other medical concerns as they age. But some dog owners prefer purebred dogs because they know what to expect of such animals. For example, Golden Retriever or Labrador owners likely have a good

Menace 10U wins in premier fashion CIF-SS – Ford Championships Top Ten 2014 Baseball at USSSA Long Beach Tournament Coaches’ Baseball Rankings (as of May 5, 2014)

JP Raineri Multimedia Editor The Menace baseball organization once again showed its dominance by having another one of its teams demonstrate why they are one of the area’s most successful travel baseball programs. In their first USSSA tournament, the Menace and its 10U team won it all in a performance that was nothing short of amazing last weekend. Saturday at the tournament, which was called the ‘Premier’, it was all about playing hard during pool play for the Menace so they could set the table for Sunday. During their first game of pool play they shut out the Los Altos Gauchos in 4 short innings with # 4 Jared Mannino and # 27 Logan Gonzalez leading the team offensively going 2 for 2 during the game. Defensively # 21 Jhonas Richards pitched a shutout with 6 strikeouts 2 hits and 1 walk. As the chilly evening air set in on Saturday, their second game would prove to be one of the most exciting games of the tournament, going 8 innings before the Menace were able to overcome the LA Xtreme in a 2-1 battle of pitching and defense. The Menace would face the number two team in the 10U AAA division, the Los Alamitos Rampage on Sunday morning to wrap up pool play. Despite a great performance, the menace lost the game 6 - 5, but due to their seeding, the Menace would return that same day to face the Rampage in the finals where they would wind up beating them 11-6. Prior to the defeat the Rampage hadn’t trailed a team throughout the tournament but in the end the Menace proved to be the Premier team that day. During the championship game, the Menace was a totally different

team than they were the previous game. Gonzalez got the win, but it wasn’t until the top of the 6th when they took control of the game. Offensively, Jhonas Richards led the hit parade going 3 for 3, # 12 Harley Norris showed his hitting prowess by laying down a sac bunt and getting an RBI in the top of the second, while newcomer # 15 Grant Corona’s bat woke up and helped the Menace take the

final lead of the game to finish off the Rampage. “Our 10U team played some good baseball against some really strong teams this weekend, and the boys did what they needed to do to win. They never gave up and it says a lot about a team’s character when you can go out to a game, play 6 innings only have 1 hit and still win the game,” exclaimed head coach, Taylor George.

Youth selected to play on U11 Academy team TEMECULA – Fifteen boys were selected to play on Temecula United’s U11 Academy Team. Into their third year as a team now, the B03 Academy team picks up six new players in preparation for the new 11v11 challenge. Accepted into the 2014 San Diego Developmental Academy (SDDA), the team will be jumping up two flights of competition after winning the league last season and coming in second the year before. The SDDA is quickly gaining the reputation as the most competitive youth soccer league in southern California. With only two flights of play and a strict acceptance policy, the boys are privileged to represent Temecula as the most northern club in the league. “It is imperative that we continue to push ourselves as a team and seek out the best competition we can find. Promoting out of Presidio League and into the

SDDA is a huge honor but will come with some very tough challenges. We know we have a lot of work to do over the next several months to prepare but we are confident we will compete well. Too often good teams do not leave their comfort zone and they quickly get out paced in the years to come. This team will

continue to challenge itself all the way to the top competition in California and beyond.

idea of the dogs’ temperament and can likely gauge just how large the dog will become. The owners will also be aware of particular flaws or attributes of the breed, such as drooling, snoring or barking. Though such guesswork used to be considerably more difficult with mixed breed dogs, scientific advancements now enable curious pet parents to determine the genetic makeup of mixed-breed dogs. A variety of do-it-yourself DNA testing kits allow dog owners to perform genetic testing on their mixed-breed best friends. Owners simply swab inside of the dog’s mouth to collect cheek cell samples, and then seal the swabs inside of the kit packaging. Some additional information must be sup-

plied before a lab will run a series of tests to determine the best breed matches among their database of various dog breeds. The tests look at microsatellite genotypes for specific dog breeds, and usually offer the percentage of a given breed that is in the mutt’s DNA. Accuracy of the tests depends largely on the number of breedrelated genetic markers in its database. A company that has a larger database of genetic markers will be able to offer a clearer picture. While the tests are not 100 percent accurate, they do offer owners of mixed breed dogs a better chance at determining the heritage of a particular mixed-breed dog. This can help owners of such dogs be aware of any potential health issues or simply assuage curiosity as to why their pup looks or acts the way it does.

Storm soar into first place, win 10th straight home game with help from Headley Quentin, Kelly and Headley rehab with Storm while fans prepare to ‘geek out’ JP Raineri Multimedia Editor It’s been quite the rollercoaster ride for the Lake Elsinore Storm during their first month of regular season baseball. April started off a bit rocky for the boys donning the eyes that look right back at you. Prior to going on a seven game win streak, the Storm were sitting close to the bottom of the pack at 10 wins and 11 losses, but a stellar performance by winning 10 of their last 11 games has catapulted them into first place in the South Division of the California League. To add to the excitement in the clubhouse, the Storm have seen three key Padres players come down for some rehab assignments. Third baseman Chase Headley, outfielder Carlos Quentin and pitcher Casey Kelly will all make re-appearances during the week as all three hope to be reinstated from the disabled list by the end of the Padres home stand on Sunday, May 11. Headley, on the disabled list since April 25 with a strained right calf, appeared in his first Minor League rehabilitation game on Monday, May 5 and Quentin played in two games over the past weekend and is likely to play in a few more games. Quentin has been out since suffering a bone bruise to his left knee making a sliding catch in a game on March 16 and has been on the disabled list since March 29. Kelly missed all of last season following reconstructive surgery on his right elbow on April 2, 2013, but made his first Minor League rehab start on Saturday, May 3 for Lake Elsinore and rejoined the Storm on Thursday, May 8 for a start. “It’s an exciting time for us right now. We have some great themes coming up for fans to enjoy like our GEEKend Weekend that starts on the 16th, our own Joe Ross was named California League Pitcher of the Week and having the guys

from the top come down always gets the fans excited,” said Storm General Manager Raj Narayanan. “We can’t wait to see everybody at the ballpark.” With some help from Tyler Zickel, assistant director of media relations, here is some of what happened over the past week, plus a look at what’s coming up for your Lake Elsinore Storm.

longest hitting streak by a Storm player this season. He has collected 13 hits in his last 27 at-bats. Renfroe has hit in six in row. With the longest home stand to date in the books, the Storm traveled up the 15 freeway to take on the Inland Empire 66ers (11-17) over the weekend where they took the series 2 games to 1.

Joe Ross named California League Pitcher of the Week Starting pitcher Joe Ross was named California League Pitcher of the Week for games played between April 28 and May 4. The 20-yearold blanked the Visalia Rawhide through six innings of work on Tuesday, April 29 tallying a careerhigh nine strikeouts without walking a single batter en route to his second win of the season. Ross has compiled a 1.95 ERA in six starts, good enough for third-best in the California League. The Oakland, California native has allowed just three earned runs in his last five starts, striking out 30 and walking five, a 6:1 strikeout to walk ratio. The distinction is the first awarded to a Storm player this season.

Storm win 10th consecutive home game A five-run second inning provided more than enough offense for the Storm Monday, May 5 in a 7-4 defeat of the Lancaster JetHawks, stretching their home win streak to ten consecutive games. After a 1-2-3 top of the first from Storm starter Joe Ross, the bats came out swinging in the bottom of the frame. Benji Gonzalez doubled with one out, and Padres third baseman Chase Headley, who joined the Storm prior to the game on a rehab assignment, drove a two-bagger of his own to right-centerfield that plated Gonzalez. Headley finished the night one for three with two RBIs and one run scored. Gonzalez was two for three with a pair of RBIs and two runs scored. Ross earned the win and went 6.0 innings, allowing four runs on six hits and striking out four in that span. The Storm have won ten of their last eleven and seventeen of their last twenty two, securing their spot at the top of the South Division. The Storm will finish out their series with Lancaster this week and will then welcome Rancho Cucamonga over the weekend. The Lake Elsinore Storm will host their inaugural GEEKend Weekend May 16-18 in celebration of geek culture. In addition to a packed events schedule, each day will feature special raffles and giveaways. Proceeds from the weekend will benefit the American Lung Association

Storm win seven straight to complete perfect home stand The Lake Elsinore Storm were walk-off winners for the third time in four games Thursday May 1, besting the Visalia Rawhide 3-2 in eleven innings to complete a perfect home stand. The win was the ninth straight at The Diamond for the Storm (17-11), who are now 10-4 at home. Of those 10 victories, four have come in walk-off fashion. Lake Elsinore improves to 3-1 in extra inning games and is in sole possession of first place in the Southern Division. Their record is second only to the Bakersfield Blaze, who are 20-8 in 2014.

Chaparral baseball coach throws 4,660 pitches during Puma fundraiser, sets personal record JP Raineri Multimedia Editor The Chaparral baseball program held a huge fundraiser last month that could lead Assistant Varsity Coach Kevin Newby to the front steps of the Guinness Book of World Records offices. After the program had been looking for ideas for fundraisers and didn’t want to go through the everyday conventional methods like car washes and pancake breakfasts, the idea was brought up about doing a Hit-A-Thon, which is something that Kevin Newby, aka ‘The Swing Dr.’, has plenty of experience with. Newby, a newcomer to the Chaparral program, is a former minor league player and has traveled the college ranks coaching throughout the greater San Diego area for over 25 years. “I did something like this at

Grossmont and it was just an okay event. The way it was managed here in the sweet valley of wines, well, let’s just say, I may never call San Diego home again. The people here are so passionate about their kids and sports, it’s enough to make anyone shell out a couple bucks no matter what the cause is,” exclaimed Newby. “Of course I’m a little biased,” he added. “We had great support and a great mind running the show in Parent Support Group member Craig John’s, who had an entire team under him ensuring this was going to be as successful as it was. It really brought the program together.” Newby arrived at the fields by 5 a.m. to start prepping for the day and by 5:30 a.m. was ready to start throwing pitches. Senior varsity player Buddy Sokach was the first to step up to the plate, but not before he read Psalms 91 out loud

to bless Chaparral High School on what everyone knew was going to be a long day. The hitting began at the cages, located just behind the home dugout, with the lights on during the early morning hours. Each hitter would be dealt 25 baseballs per bucket and from there the fun transitioned to the varsity field at 10 a.m. when the first group of youth hitters showed up from the Menace baseball program representing the 12U team. The junior varsity fields were transformed into a carnival-like atmosphere with jumpers and slides, face painters, snow cones and there was even a dunk tank by the field house where Principal Gil Compton stopped by to see who had the gull to try to dunk him. Of course, the Chaparral coaches all took turns getting wet, many of whom were dunked by their own players.

Sports BASEBALL, from page B-4 The varsity outfield had markers all over it and signs from the sponsors were spread out as well. Sponsors like Abeja Services, Faustos Bail Bonds, Jolly Jumps, Bright Now Dental, Manyk Energy, Dick’s sporting Goods, Pipeline, Great Clips and more were all giving free items away when their signs were hit by any of the players and participants. “The environment was very fun and the kids loved trying to out hit each other, we could see that it built some camaraderie and of course a little competition never hurts either,” said Jason Ehmke, who has a son on the Menace team. Hundreds of supporters and sponsors stopped by to watch and hit throughout the day. Kenny Barton, former professional baseball player and good friend to the Swing Dr. who played in the minor leagues with Newby then went on to play pro ball with the Giants and Indians, also stopped by to support. “Newby is a beast,” said Barton. “When he played he came to destroy you, so I knew the only way he would be done throwing is if he ran out of hitters. Sure enough when the younger boys told me he would need ice, I put them at ease telling them the only way Newby would need ice was if his Gatorade was getting warm. They laughed, but I never saw him ice his arm when we were growing up, and it’s been 40 years since I first met him. How was his arm after he was done? I have no idea, but I know he threw for four hours the next morning in San Diego!” Local MLB scout Dan Dixon backed up Dixon, stating, “These kids have no idea how hard Kevin played, when he was on the field, he never gets tired.” A second travel team, the So

Cal Bombers, brought their bats out before the varsity players hit as well as some youth players from Temecula Pony and the local Little League and 11 hours and 39 minutes into the fundraiser, the nearly 60-year-old Chaparral varsity coach, who had also been hit in the ribs the day before by a come backer off of a 6’9, 290 pound prospect named Tim Leary during a batting lesson, had no hitters to throw to and with darkness setting in had thrown his 4,660th and final pitch to the same hitter that started off the day, Buddy Sokach. The overall long ball winner on the day was Juwann Maxwell from the varsity squad as he smashed 11 home runs and right behind him was Marc Sauceda who ripped eight home runs. There was a tie at the top of junior varsity with an incredible six launched home runs each from Cameron Haskel and Kyler Downs. For the freshman team, no players hit any long balls over the fence but Will Mentzer and Chase Parker had 25 total bases each. (Will had 9 doubles, 7 singles and Chase had 6 doubles and 13 singles.) “All I did was throw and get a few sponsors,” said Newby. “My efforts were nothing next to the countless hours of planning and work done by everyone involved.” Craig Johns wrapped up the day with a smile by saying, “Thanks and congratulations to Coach Newby for attaining a personal best and new high mark for pitches thrown in a day and I have to send a huge thanks out to Steve Eicher from Uniquemobilesounds.com, he was our public announcer all day, donated his time and was one of the first to arrive and one of the last to leave. We learned a lot about running an event like this and will make this annual event even better next year and for years to come.”

HS softball: Battle for first place in Southwestern League Chaparral and Murrieta Valley face off for two big games this week

Great Oak catcher Kayla Green tags out Chaparral Reilly Peters at the plate to keep the game scoreless through two innings.

Charles McKee Sports Writer Murrieta Valley is in first place in the Southwestern League with a perfect 6-0 record and Chaparral is a close second at 5-1. The Pumas only blemish in league play came at the hands of the WolfpackThursday. Great Oak’s Autumn Storms was nearly unhittable as she tossed a one hitter and struck out 10 on her way to a 2-1 victory. The Pumas have powerful shortstop Kristen Williams in their lineup. She is leading the league with 10 Home Runs and 30 RBIs. Cheyenne Balzer is the teams leading hitter with a .462 batting average. On the mound for Chap-

arral is Karissa Frazier who leads the Southwestern League with 19 victories. The Nighthawk offense is led by Stephanie Moreno and her .452 batting average. Olivia Sanchez provides the power for Murrieta Valley with four home runs and 24 runs batted in. Pitcher Lacey Alderman is who the Nighthawks hand the ball to and has 11 wins and boasts a 1.34 ERA, second in the league. These two very closely matched teams will face each other on Tuesday at Murrieta Valley. The two teams will play the second game at Chaparral Thursday. The action promises to be tense and exciting as the Southwestern League title is on the line and both teams can

Trimble threw a complete game and picked up his fifth win of the season giving up just one earned run on five hits, he would walk two and struck out five on the day. Temescal Canyon (15-6, 9-2) took the lead early in the game thanks to a three run second inning which was sparked by Terry Zuccola’s leadoff walk. Eddie Ruiz and Sean Trimble would add a pair of RBI hits and the Titans would never look back, adding three more runs in the top of the sixth inning. Elsinore (11-11, 6-5) tried to answer back with a run scoring triple in the bottom of the fourth by junior Anthony Jimenez who plated Daniel Naus (Sr-3B), but that would be the only run the Tigers could muster up in the loss. Lancers skewer Panthers 11-3 Game two on the day would see the Lakeside Lancers’ capitalize on 16 hits and Perris’ four errors which resulted in a lopsided 11-3 showing at the second annual Valley News Diamond Showcase held at Storm Stadium on Friday, May 2. Their previous meeting three days earlier was much closer as Lakeside won 7-5 on a 12-7 hitting advantage with each team recording four errors. Junior Dominic Gutierrez hit 3-for-4 including a double and an RBI; he was also successful on both base-stealing attempts. Senior pitcher Kyle James earned the win for Lakeside. Junior pitcher Robert Carrillo was credited with the loss. Carrillo also had an RBI triple at the top of the third to tie the game at 2-2, but Lakeside’s Rudy Medina responded with a stand-up triple of his own to deep left. Steven Frazier hit a single to drive in Medina and advanced to second on an over-

throw to first and to third on a wild pitch. Omar Saad drove him in to make the score 4-2 Lakeside. Lakeside scored four more runs at the bottom of the sixth on an RBI double by Gutierrez, an RBI single by Bracamontes, and a bases-loaded two-RBI base hit by Medina. “We took it one pitch at a time,” said head coach for the Lancers Bryan Wade, “but this time we expected to win. That was the difference. We expected to win this game and went out and did what we were supposed to do. We had a great senior on the mound (Christian Cisneros) to start us off. He threw the best game he’s thrown this year. Were struggling in league play which comes from a long history of struggling as a program, but if these guys believe they can then we have a chance ahead of us to do some damage in league and hopefully grab a spot in playoffs.” Perris (2-12, 0-11) will face Elsinore (11-11, 6-5) on the road and at home next week and then finish the season away and at home against Temescal Canyon (15-6, 9-2). Lakeside (7-14, 3-8) will finish their regular season play with home and aways against Heritage (10-11, 4-7) and league-leader Paloma Valley (17-4, 11-0). Wildcats still unbeaten in Sunbelt, 5-2 win over Heritage Game three on the day, which took place under the lights, featured the Paloma Valley Wildcats (17-4, 11-0) who continued their Sunbelt League dominance with a 5-2 win over the Heritage Patriots (10-11, 4-7). “Our team has played like this all year,” said Wildcats’ coach Chuck Kemp, “scrapping for every run. They play fundamentally sound defense and our guys on

the mound continually compete week after week after week. This was classic Paloma Valley baseball and I couldn’t be more proud of them.” When asked whom he wanted to credit with a shout-out, he responded, “The Paloma Valley crowd and fans that support us!” Paloma Valley took a 3-0 lead into the fourth inning until Heritage’s Austin Clifton turned his base hit into a two-bagger on a throwing error to first. He scored on a base hit by Michael DiMarco to put Heritage on the scoreboard, 3-1. Walz led off with a hit for Paloma Valley, advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Ryan Kemp and a grounder by Josh Arvizu and it would be Anthony Lee who would beat out a grounder for an RBI base hit to give the Wildcats a 4-1 lead. Following a scoreless fifth inning, Heritage would pull to within two. Paloma Valley’s Alex Patterson led off the 6th inning with a base hit, but was thrown out attempting to steal second. James Garcia got a base hit and was advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Josh Arvizu and Anthony Lee would walk as Heritage changed pitchers to Anthony “AJ” Villa (1.53 ERA). Nick Salazar immediately hit a line drive through third base but Garcia was ejected from the game for intentionally running into the catcher on the play at the plate. Paloma would shut Heritage down in the bottom of the 6th and 7th and immediately following the game, Paloma Valley’s Cody McCoy bounded into the stands with a bouquet of flowers as the game announcer and the stadium’s video board broadcast his question “Miranda Rogers, will you go to prom with me?” She said “yes.” The prom was the next night.

Employ various techniques to cut down on the time it takes to prepare and cook a meal.

arm weather provides a great opportunity to slow down and savor time spent having fun in the great outdoors. But time spent away from home often leads to meals made on the fly or last-minute jaunts to a nearby fast-food restaurant. Though last-minute meals or trips to the local burger joint might be convenient, they are not always healthy. Fortunately, there are other ways to eat well even when you’re pressed for time. Choose fast-cooking foods Stock the pantry with items that will cook quickly. Fresh produce can be steamed or grilled in only a few minutes and served alone as a vegetarian meal or mixed with other foods for a quick entree. Seafood tends to cook quite fast, and many seafood dishes make for a low-fat source of healthy protein and essential fatty acids. Seafood also is lighter on the stomach, which fits well with the smaller meals people tend to enjoy during warm weather. Even foods that take a long time to cook can be prepared quickly. Thick cuts of meat or poultry can

be fileted or sliced to allow them to cook faster. Cook with high heat Instead of slow-roasting or plugging in the slow cooker for hours on end, instant meal gratification often means cranking up the heat. That is why grilling is such a popular cooking method this time of year. Grilling will sear meats and vegetables over high heat, sometimes as much as 400 to 500 F, cooking foods rapidly as a result. Select meats that do well over high heat, such as those that are tender, because they will not require long cooking periods to break down the fibers in the meat. If grilling is not an option, then stir-frying is another way to cook fast over high heat. Invest in a wok or another deep frying pan for such meals. Have prepared items on standby Keep the refrigerator stocked with already-washed vegetables and lettuce. Par-boiled potatoes or pasta can be mixed in with a number of different ingredients to create a filling meal. When free time allows, develop a plan so

meals take less time to prepare. If frozen items must be defrosted, make sure to put them in the refrigerator the day before they will be cooked to begin the thawing period. Otherwise, use a microwave to safely defrost foods rather than leaving them out on the counter where bacteria can grow. Don’t fret a no-fuss night Not every meal has to be a threecourse delight. A fast dinner could equate to a sandwich or salad. Breakfast foods for dinner are also quite popular and can cook up quickly. Surprise everyone with French toast or pancakes made savory with bits of bacon and spinach in the batter. When all else fails, a bowl of cereal can be adequate and fast. When dining out, go healthy Sometimes takeout or a meal out with friends or family is the perfect ending to a great day. Divide larger portions among other diners. Clear soups are better for you than cream-based soups. Try to fill up on vegetables rather than bread served before the meal.

Nothing is more disappointing than trying to grill that perfect steak when your barbecue just won’t heat up and cook the way it used to. To avoid this, the grilling experts at Broil King offer some helpful tips to get your gas barbecue ready for the season ahead. Give your grill a good cleaning. Begin by removing the cooking grids, grates and burners from your grill. Brush the inside of the oven with a sturdy bristle brush to remove the build-up of grease. Using a grill cleaner, scrub the inside and outside of the oven and then rinse with water. Never use oven cleaner on your grill since it is corrosive and can damage the other components. Check for leaks. Inspect the gas hose to make sure there aren’t any cracks or leaks. This can easily be done by preparing a soapy solution and applying it to the connections at the tank and valve. Turn the tank on slowly and watch for bubbles to form, which indicates that there is a leak. Try tightening the connections and retest. If persistent leaking or blistering is detected, stop using your grill and replace the gas assembly. Inspect your burners. Carefully inspect your burners, making sure

there are no damaged ports or holes rusted through. If there are, it’s time for a replacement. Check all igniter connections to ensure they’re not loose and remove any debris from the components. Beware of spiders. It’s very important to keep the burner tubes clean. Spiders love to make a nest in these tubes, creating blockages that can cause serious damage. Clean the tubes using a venturi brush or bottle brush. Season your grids. Check the cooking grids to make sure no welds are broken and brush off any stuck on residue. If you have cast iron cooking grids, season them with oil to keep food from sticking and to help prevent rust. Maintain the little things. Finally, check the condition of your control knobs, thermometer and handles. Replacing small items like this can refresh your gas barbecue and make it look new again. Taking a bit of time each season to clean and inspect the gas barbecue will prolong its life and will ensure it is reliable for another great barbecue season.

How to reduce the risk of severe hearing loss their hearing and maintain it well into their golden ears. Limit workplace exposure to noise. Overexposure to noise while on the job is a leading cause of severe hearing loss, yet millions of people encounter hazardous levels of noise during a typical workday. For example, mechanics are routinely exposed to loud noise that stems from power tools or motor vehicle engines. This does not mean mechanics should take up a new trade, but they should approach the workday with a goal of protecting their hearing. Mechanics and other professionals who are routinely exposed to workplace noise can wear protectors that cover their ears or earplugs that reduce the impact of noise on their ears. Discuss side effects of medica-

INLAND EMPIRE – Though it’s difficult for many people to imagine living in a world in which their hearing has been compromised, hearing loss is a significant medical issue that affects millions of people across the globe. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, among adults ages 65 and older in the United States, 12.3 percent of men and nearly 14 percent of women are affected by tinnitus, a ringing or buzzing in the ears that can be intermittent or continuous and can vary in loudness. Some are quick to assume hearing loss is a natural side effect of aging, and while the relationship between age and hearing loss is strong, that does not mean men and women cannot take steps to protect

tions with a doctor before taking them. Many people may be surprised to learn that certain medications can cause hearing loss. Some cancer drugs and certain antibiotics can cause hearing loss, including loss that may be permanent. In addition, when used regularly, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin and acetaminophen can increase a person’s risk of hearing loss. Some side effects related to hearing loss may disappear when a person stops taking the medication that is contributing to those side effects, but that’s not always the case, so it’s best to discuss any potential side effects of medications with your physician before taking anything. Be especially careful when enjoying recreational activities that put hearing in harm’s way. Some

celebratory activities are augmented by fireworks, and while fireworks may provide some stunning visual appeal to celebrations, that appeal could be coming at the expense of one’s hearing. Hearing loss is sometimes caused by exposure to loud and sudden noises, such as those made by fireworks. When attending celebrations that include fireworks, stay as far away from the fireworks as possible and wear earplugs if necessary. Shooting enthusiasts may also be putting themselves in harm’s way. When visiting a shooting range or going on a hunting trip, they can protect their ears with headphones or ear plugs. The sudden pop of a gun or rifle can cause irreparable ear damage if steps have not been taken to protect their ears. Limit use of personal music play-

ers. Though it’s hard to predict how many of today’s young people will suffer hearing loss down the road, it’s fair to assume hearing loss figures will be on the rise. That’s thanks in large part to increased usage of personal music players and smartphones and their accompanying earbuds and headphones that allow music fans to crank up their favorite tunes at all hours of the day regardless of location. The louder and longer a person listens to music through headphones or earbuds, the greater that person’s risk of hearing loss may be. Those who want to protect their hearing for the long haul should limit their use of headphones and earbuds, and be sure to keep the volume down when they are using such devices.

Murrieta High School filmmakers raise mental health awareness MURRIETA – Murrieta Valley High School (MVHS) filmmaking students participated in the Directing Change video contest where they competed against other students in Riverside, San Bernardino and Mono Counties. Students produced a 60 second public service announcement on suicide prevention and ending the silence of mental illness. MVHS students won four awards and two honorable mentions. The first place winners received $500 and they will be flown to Sacramento on May 13 to visit the capitol and attend a formal red carpet screening and awards ceremony at the Crest Theater with guest speakers from Fox’s hit TV series

Glee. Second and third place winners received $250 in prize money. During their visit to the capitol, students will speak with legislators and participate in the “Mental Health Matters” event taking place that day. The district’s coordinator for student support Dean Lesicko said, “I am very pleased to see our students so actively involved in this important effort to reduce the stigma attached to mental health issues and to educate others about the importance of suicide prevention. Their efforts will help make our community that much better for everyone.” Across the country 60 million Americans live with mental illness. Directing Change is

part of statewide efforts to prevent suicide, reduce stigma and discrimination related to mental illness and to promote the mental health and wellness of students. * 1st Place - “Reach Out” Samantha Webb, Reginald Weston Brown & Michael Melero * 2nd Place - “Friends for Life” Nina Watts * Honorable Mention “Help a Friend, Save a Life” Logan Fike, Eduardao Lanuzo and Hunter Ramaekers * Honorable Mention “Holly and Suicide” Simone Jimerson * 1st Place - “Something Inside” Marcus Nesius * 3rd Place - “Smile” Megan Burke

Understand what you’re paying for with health care Jason Alderman Special to the Valley News It’s no secret that health care costs have been spiraling out of control for years. To fight back, your best bet is to be a well-informed consumer. Know the true costs of medical procedures, supplies and medications so you can bargain effectively; carefully anticipate and track medical expenses; and stay on top of your bills. But sometimes, even when you follow the rules you still can get burned. I’ve heard many appalling stories about people – even those with comprehensive insurance – who have been denied benefits, overcharged, sent to collections or even forced to file for bankruptcy because they couldn’t pay their medical bills. Here are a few coping strategies. Carefully review each doctor, lab or hospital bill and match it against the Explanation of Benefits statement

that shows how much they were reimbursed by the insurance company. Also, watch for items that may have been charged to you by mistake such as medications, supplies, treatments or meals you didn’t receive while hospitalized or getting an outpatient procedure. Watch for duplicate charges for a single procedure (such as x-rays, MRIs and lab work), including those that had to be redone due to a technician’s error, as well as charges for a full day’s hospitalization when you checked out early. The summary hospital bill you were sent probably doesn’t contain many details, so ask for an itemized bill along with a copy of your medical chart and a pharmacy ledger showing which drugs you were given during your stay. If you’re having difficulty paying a medical bill, don’t simply ignore it. Contact creditors as soon as possible,

explain your situation and ask them to set up an installment payment plan or work out a reduced rate. Ask the hospital’s patient liaison to review your case and see whether you qualify for financial assistance from the government, a charitable organization or the hospital itself. Use online price-comparison services like Healthcare Blue Book and OutofPocket.com to research going rates for a variety of medical services. Unless it’s a true emergency, try to avoid emergency rooms and use an urgent care network facility affiliated with your insurance company or ask your doctor for recommendations. Bottom line is know what health services cost and don’t be afraid to negotiate. You’ll haggle over the price of a car – why not your health?

Look for ways to reduce your workload at home Juggling a career and new motherhood won’t just have an impact at the office. Part of making a successful transition from working professional to working mother is recognizing that adjustments need to be made at home as well. Both new parents are in the same boat, but mothers are the ones who spend the first three months at home with their new child, and during those three months new mothers typically develop a certain rapport with their new babies that new fathers do not. Babies may prove more comfortable being fed or rocked to sleep by mom instead of dad. In such instances, look for ways to reduce your workload at home,

whether that’s sharing cooking duties or other chores around the house that were once your responsibility alone.

Help your mom get organized for Mother’s Day Jason Alderman Special to the Valley News Mother’s Day is May 11. If you’re wracking your brain for ways to show your mom appreciation for all the sacrifices she made while raising you, here’s a thought: why not offer to spend some time helping to sort through her financial, legal and medical paperwork to make sure everything is in order? While flowers and candy offer immediate gratification, I’ll bet your mom will truly appreciate the long-term value of getting her records in order now so that she – and you – will be able to take appropriate actions later on, should the need arise. Retirement income sources. Gather these documents so your mom will have a better idea how much income she’ll have available throughout retirement: * Register your mom at mySocialSecurity (www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount) to gain access to personalized estimates of retirement, disability and survivors benefits, lifetime earnings records and estimated Social Security and Medicare taxes paid. * You’ll also need your dad’s statement to determine any potential spousal or survivor benefits for which she might be eligible, so sign him up as well. * Annual statements for pension, IRA, 401(k) or other retirement savings plans for which she’s eligible. (Check your dad’s statements too in case she’s eligible for spousal death benefits.) * Bank statements for checking, savings, money market and CD accounts.

* Company stock and bond certificates, and statements for other investment accounts. Outstanding debts. Also gather monthly statements and outstanding balances owed for major expenses including home mortgage or other property loans, home equity loan or line of credit, car loan or lease, credit cards, medical bills and personal loans. Other important documents. Your mom should have documents instructing how she’d like her affairs to be handled, both while she’s living and after death. Look for: * Medical, homeowner/renter, auto, life, disability and long-term care insurance policies. A will (and possibly a trust) outlining how she wants her estate managed after death. * Durable power of attorney and health care proxy specifying who will make her financial and medical decisions if she becomes incapacitated. * Also, a living will tells doctors which medical treatments and life-support procedures she does or doesn’t want performed. * Birth certificate, marriage license, Social Security card, funeral plans, safe deposit box information, etc. * Contact information for professional service providers (doctors, pharmacy, lawyer, financial advisor, bank, insurance companies, etc.) Also give these providers your own contact information in case of emergencies.

Review these documents regularly and make updates whenever her situation changes. For example, make sure that designated beneficiaries for your mom’s will, life insurance and retirement plans accurately reflect her current wishes. If you need help guiding financial discussions, Social Security has created a special website for women (www.ssa.gov/women) that provides information on retirement, disability and other issues – in English and Spanish. They also have a Retirement Estimator (www.ssa. gov/estimator) that enters her earnings information from their records to estimate her projected Social Security benefits under different scenarios (age at retirement, future earnings projections, etc.) Another good resource is the Women’s Saving Initiative, a program jointly developed by Heinz Family Philanthropies, the Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER) and Visa Inc. This program features a free book called “What Women Need to Know About Retirement,” which you can download as a PDF or audio file at www.practicalmoneyskills.com/ resources. If you need professional help, consult a licensed financial planner who can design a personalized retirement strategy. If you don’t know one, try the Financial Planning Association (www.plannersearch.org). Jason Alderman directs Visa’s financial education programs.

Avoid going overboard at the office Working mothers are often driven to show their employers that new motherhood will not affect their on-the-job performance. In their haste to prove motherhood won’t prove a distraction, new mothers may take on more they can chew. Recognize that being a working mother does require an adjustment period, especially in the immediate weeks and months after maternity leave has ended and your body has yet to adjust to its new schedule. Accept help when it’s offered and recognize that good employers understand the adjustments

you will need to make in the immediate aftermath of a pregnancy.

Carefully consider career decisions Some new mothers respond to motherhood by making changes with regard to their careers. While adjustments will almost certainly need to be made, it’s important that women avoid knee-jerk reactions. Some women feel guilty about not spending enough time with their children and ultimately allow that guilt to govern their decisions about their careers. But women who don’t give ample consideration to such decisions may grow to regret them when they find they miss their old jobs and the responsibilities and sense of purpose that comes with those jobs. When making career decisions as new motherhood is approaching or after it arrives, make a list of the pros and cons to each deci-

sion and the motives behind each decision you might make. The more thoughtfully you approach each decision, the happier you’re likely to be with that decision once it’s been made.

INLAND EMPIRE – The role women play in society and within their own households has changed dramatically over the last halfcentury. According to Pew Research Center analysis of the Decennial Census and American Community Surveys Integrated Public Use Microdata Sample files, in 1960 just 10.8 percent of married mothers were the primary earners in households that included children under the age of 18. That figure rose steadily over the next 50 years, reaching 40.4 percent by 2011. Though the steady rise in those percentages makes the 2011 figure less than surprising, the fact remains that today’s working mothers have more on their plate than ever before and are under more pressure to juggle those responsibilities than their predecessors. Juggling a career and motherhood is difficult for any woman, but the transition to wearing two hats can prove an especially difficult adjustment for new moth-
