RANCHO CORDOVA, CA (MPG)
- Local Rancho Cordova res-
ident Sara Walter (founder of
the Rancho Cordova Watch)
loves parrots, and her passion for these beautiful
creatures prompted her to volunteer her time at Parrot Planet.
Established in 2013, Parrot
Planet evolved from a parrot rescue service, the Wing
Foundation (www.thewingfoundation.org). Dana Strome, an
ardent parrot lover and parrot
advocate, is a founder of both
services.
Over a period of 20 years,
Strome has rescued and rehomed over 800 parrots at her
sole expense, with no re-homing fees required. Strome saw
that too often parrots were sold
with little to no regard for either
their or their human counterparts’ compatibility, welfare, or
environment. This often contributed to many of the parrots
ultimately having to find new
homes. From this came a call
to action resulting in the advocating of “The Parrot Bill of
Rights,” exclusion of certain
parrots for sale, and the evolution of a completely new breed
of parrot retail venue—Parrot
Planet.
“The store is amazing and
parents always bring their children in because it is really like
a zoo and fun for them to interact with the parrots and get
some education from the staff,
including me, who volunteers
and I absolutely love it. It is
very therapeutic for me to be
there helping and bathing birds
and giving them attention,” said
Walter.
Parrot Planet has a cage-free
philosophy and allows the birds,
rescues, and babies raised in
house to be out on manzanita
stands where they can socialize
and interact will store visitors.
There is a section for the rescue birds called Rescue Island
where people specifically looking to adopt can visit and get to
know these birds.
Walter volunteers at Parrot
Planet about 20 hours a week
on top of working full time
because she really feels there
is a need to help these parrots.
At Parrot Planet, these birds are
taken in, cared for, housed, and
taken to the vet. Potential adopters are interviewed and have to
fill out an adoption contract;
often, a home check is conducted to make sure the new
home is suitable for the parrots.
There are also parrots available
for adoption that are handicapped or damaged in some

Following in her aunt’s footstep,
Maya loves to visit the shop and is a
member of the bird club at her High
School. Maya is pictured with Ariel
the Toucan, who was surrendered to
us after her loving owner died. Ariel
is very much loved by all customers
and staff and is very sweet. Domingo

who was abandoned in an empty
home with a badly broken wing

popular amongst all visitors and
people often bring him treats.

Melinda Martel to Be
Sworn in as Rancho
Cordova Postmaster
RANCHO CORDOVA, CA (MPG) - On
Friday, January 30th, Melinda
Martel will follow a proud tradition that dates back to 1955
when Beryl E. Carroll first took
office as the first Rancho Cordova
Postmaster. Martel will raise her
right hand to take the official
oath of office as the new Rancho
Cordova Postmaster at a 10 a.m.
ceremony at the Rancho Cordova
Post Office, 10923 Progress Ct.,
Rancho Cordova, CA 95670.
In her last official act as the
Sacramento District Manager,
Barbara Plunkett will administer
the oath of office.
Martel began her postal career
in 1979 as a city letter carrier in
New York, one of the first females
to carry mail there. In 1982, she
began her management career as
a supervisor in Novato, CA. She
held numerous management positions in mail processing, customer
service, and marketing.
As the new Rancho Cordova
Postmaster, Martel oversees 87
employees who process and deliver
a daily volume of more than 125,000
pieces to 30,631 delivery points
(addresses) on 49 city routes and to
1,699 Post Office boxes. Photo courtesy of
United States Postal Service
“I feel honored to be an integral part of this community,” said
Martel. “Serving the community
of Rancho Cordova and providing
the best possible mail service will
be my focus.”
Martel enjoys cycling, cooking,
traveling, reading and skiing. She
and her husband, Mike, reside in
Rancho Murieta. They have two
sons, Michael and Marc.

Churches Conclude Four-Week Winter Shelter
Story and photo
by Margaret Snider
RANCHO CORDOVA, CA (MPG) -
The Interfaith Rotating Winter
Shelter of Rancho Cordova is all
about the people being served.
Dono Mitchell (65) is a Vietnam
veteran and was a welder for 25
years; he has been homeless for
three years. “This is a top-ofthe-list program,” Mitchell said.
“They get into your spiritual part.
They want to know what you’re
doing. A lot of places don’t care.”
Mitchell said that it has been
difficult for him to stay in one
place, but he’s not getting any
younger. “Although the program
stops tomorrow, it’s not going to
get any warmer,” Mitchell said.
“It’s just the beginning of winter,
so I don’t know what I’m going
to do.”
Inez Reyes of St. John Vianney Catholic Church and Fay Kerekes of
United Methodist Church of Rancho Cordova, and others, provided intake
processing during the four weeks of shelter at Rancho Cordova host
churches.
The program began on
schedule and ran for four
weeks, providing food, comfort, and shelter from the cold
for some of the local homeless
and overcoming several challenges including being without
a central intake site. Undeterred
from their goal, the group processed their guests each day at
the host sites. Inez Reyes of St.
John Vianney Catholic Church
and Fay Kerekes of United
Methodist Church of Rancho
Cordova handled the evening
intake every day of the program, helped by Nan Traud of
Sun River Church, and others,
working at the different sites
each week.
Karen Edwards of Sun River
Church, one of the main organizers and promoters of the
program, said that having a
central intake site would have
provided a stable location for
patrons to gather and a set time
for beginning and ending each
day’s shelter. It would also have
avoided the confusion of the
patrons about where to go each
week.
“I really believe we cannot
operate next year without
an intake site,” said Edwards.
The program was able to cover
only four of the eight weeks they
had planned, with only four
churches volunteering to be host
sites: St. John Vianney Catholic
Church, Cordova Neighborhood
Church, Sun River Church,
and Cordova Church of Christ.
However, the group hopes to
increase the span of time covered next year.
“There are 50-something
congregations in the Rancho
Cordova area,” said Larry
Stafford, associate minister specializing in outreach
and involvement for Cordova
Church of Christ. “Right here
on Coloma Road we have 12, so
we should be able to make very
good inroads on the problem.”
Stafford invited other church

Raley’s Launches Commitment to Sustainable Seafood
By Kat Maudru
SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) -
Raley’s family of fine stores has begun
showcasing its dedication to sustainable seafood—a commitment to
choices that are better for their customers and the planet.
Sustainable seafood is either caught
wild or farmed in ways that consider
the long-term vitality of harvested species and the wellbeing of the oceans.
Raley’s new sustainable symbol indicates that seafood has been sourced
from certified fisheries or farm programs. Raley’s does not purchase
species that are threatened and have
no credible improvement plan such as
sharks, tuna from certain nations, and
spiny lobsters, to name a few.
Raley ’s new sustainable symbol
indicates that seafood has been
sourced from certified fisheries or farm
programs. Image courtesy of Raley’s
“As part of Raley’s ongoing efforts
to infuse life with health and happiness, our sustainable seafood involves
working with trusted fisheries and
fishermen, ensuring that seafood is
sourced responsibly and ethically,”
said Koen Vermeylen, Raley’s seafood
expert.
Currently, approximately 80% of
all seafood sold at Raley’s is sustainable, with a goal of December
2017 for all fish to be 100% sustainably sourced. The company’s seafood
staff has undergone extensive training
to answer customer questions about
sustainability.

Raley’s sources each species and how
they choose their suppliers, visit www.

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has
announced that aggressive and threatening
phone calls by criminals impersonating IRS
agents remain near the top of the annual
Dirty Dozen list of tax scams for the 2015
filing season.
The IRS has seen a surge of these phone
scams in recent months as scam artists
threaten police arrest, deportation, license
revocation, and other things. The IRS
reminds taxpayers to guard against all sorts
of con games that arise during any filing
season.
“If someone calls unexpectedly claiming
to be from the IRS with aggressive threats
if you don’t pay immediately, it’s a scam
artist calling,” said IRS Commissioner
John Koskinen. “The first IRS contact
with taxpayers is usually through the mail.
Taxpayers have rights, and this is not how
we do business.”
The Dirty Dozen is compiled annually
by the IRS and lists a variety of common
scams taxpayers may encounter any time
during the year. Many of these con games
peak during filing season as people prepare
their tax returns or hire someone to do so.
This year, for the first time, the IRS will
issue the individual Dirty Dozen scams one
at a time to raise consumer awareness.
Phone scams top the list this year
because it has been a persistent and pervasive problem for many taxpayers for many
months. Scammers are able to alter caller
ID numbers to make it look like the IRS
is calling. They use fake names and bogus
IRS badge numbers. They often leave
“urgent” callback requests. They prey on
the most vulnerable people, such as the
elderly, newly arrived immigrants, and
those whose first language is not English.
Scammers have been known to impersonate agents from IRS Criminal Investigation
as well.
“These criminals try to scare and shock
you into providing personal financial
information on the spot while you are off
guard,” Koskinen said. “Don’t be taken
in and don’t engage these people over the
phone.”
The Treasury Inspector General for Tax
Administration (TIGTA) has received
reports of roughly 290,000 contacts since
October 2013 and has become aware of
nearly 3,000 victims who have collectively paid over $14 million as a result
of the scam, in which individuals make
unsolicited calls to taxpayers fraudulently
claiming to be IRS officials and demanding
that they send them cash via prepaid debit
cards.
Protect Yourself
As telephone scams continue across the
country, the IRS recently put out a new
YouTube video with a renewed warning
to taxpayers not to be fooled by imposters posing as tax agency representatives.
The new Tax Scams video describes some
basic tips to help protect taxpayers from
tax scams.
These callers may demand money or
may say you have a refund due and try to
trick you into sharing private information.
These con artists can sound convincing
when they call. They may know a lot about
you.
The IRS reminds people that there are easy
ways to tell that a supposed IRS caller is a
fake. Here are five things the scammers often
do but the IRS will never do; any one of
these five things is a tell-tale sign of a scam:
The IRS will never call to demand immediate payment, nor will the agency call about
taxes owed without first having mailed you
a bill.
The IRS will never demand that you pay
taxes without giving you the opportunity to
question or appeal the amount they say you
owe.
The IRS will never require you to use a
specific payment method for your taxes, such
as a prepaid debit card.
The IRS will never ask for credit or debit
card numbers over the phone.
The IRS will never threaten to bring in
local police or other law-enforcement groups
to have you arrested for not paying.
If you get a phone call from someone
claiming to be from the IRS and asking for
money, here’s what you should do:
If you know you owe taxes or think you
might owe, call the IRS at (800) 829-1040.
The IRS workers can help you with a payment issue.
If you know you don’t owe taxes or have
no reason to believe that you do, report the
incident to the TIGTA at (800) 366-4484 or
at www.tigta.gov.
If you’ve been targeted by this scam,
also contact the Federal Trade Commission
and use their “FTC Complaint Assistant” at
www.FTC.gov. Please add “IRS Telephone
Scam” to the comments of your complaint.
Remember, too, the IRS does not use
email, text messages, or any social media
to discuss your personal tax issue involving bills or refunds. For more information on
reporting tax scams, go to www.irs.gov and
type “scam” in the search box.
Additional information about tax scams
is available on IRS social media sites,
including YouTube at www.youtube.com/
irsvideos and Tumblr at www.internalrevenueservice.tumblr.com, where people can
search “scam” to find all the scam-related
posts.

This luncheon features a business guppy that grew to be a big
fish and how every entrepreneur
can benefit from the lessons
Chris learned along the way. The

early on), persuasiveness, knowing your numbers, the value of
getting out and pitching your
own product, and as his father
taught him, always have two
dreams.
Chris will talk about being an
entrepreneur at an early age in
the Sacramento region and how
his faith in Jesus Christ drives
his passions to help others.

way due to not being cared for and housed properly.
Walter herself recently rescued an abused Macaw in
poor health and is slowly nursing him back to health
with the help of a wonderful Avian Vet.
“We consistently receive, on average, one bird
per week every month that are surrendered to us.
On occasion, they are left in boxes in front of our
store. We do ask that people wait until we open to
bring them safely inside. Some of the reasons they
are surrendered are because they have behavior
problems, their owners have died and the family
brings them in, or the owners’ life circumstances
have changed and they can no longer care for the
parrots, and some parrots we receive are rescued
because of abuse and neglect.”
Parrot Planet volunteer Sara Walter loves caring
for birds. She is pictured here with Ariel the Toucan.

Marshall and Marty are both Blue and Gold Macaws
who were recently adopted. They actually both chose
their owners and demanded in their own ways to
be taken home, which is a very common action for
parrots. Blue and Gold Macaws are native to South
America. Marty was found hanging around in a
backyard missing a lot of feathers, which are now
growing back, and Marshall was surrendered to Parrot
Planet. They are both enjoying life being spoiled in
their new homes. Photo courtesy of Sara Walter
Parrot Planet doesn’t receive many donations, so
volunteers run the program with their own money.
Walter said, “Taking care of these birds gets costly,
but it’s the right thing to do.”

Make it Fun
and it will get Done!
From the Mayor’s Corner
Operating in the Black
Bob McGarvey
Looking back at our first 11½
years, it is easy to say that the
City of Rancho Cordova has set
some records that will be very
hard to beat for a long time. We
won the title of "All America
City" in competition with cities
across the nation – and that was
only seven years after we incorporated and became a city.
“Fortune” magazine has chosen our city as one of the top
25 places to work (small business category) in the United
States for three years in a row.
We have been operating in the
“black” all 11½ years of our
existence. Even with the worst
economic downturn since the
Great Depression, we kept our
heads and balanced our budgets.
This year we are going to
open the Folsom Lake College
campus on Folsom Boulevard
and Paseo Drive and we will
be opening the new Performing
Arts Theater on the Cordova
High School campus.
We are building the Mather
Veterans Village where there are
going to be 100 new apartments
for Veterans. There will be critically needed housing options
and supportive services in the
building. The Mather Veterans
Village is in an ideal location
because it is only one block
from the VA Hospital. In addition to the permanent housing
apartments, there will be 60 temporary beds on the second story
of the rebuilt infirmary building as a place for Veterans to
rest and to learn what is available for them and what they, as
Veterans, are eligible for. All the
above mentioned and more are
offered and received by the business owners and the residents of
the City of Rancho Cordova.
There is, unfortunately,
another record that we are
receiving (and sharing with the
rest of the State) and that is a
record drought. It is forcing all
of us to be very creative and cautious about how we are to move
forward with our current and
future plans. The current plans
include building new businesses
and new homes as well as offering our help to those businesses
and residents who are already
here to continue to be successful
in all their endeavors.
All of us need to pay attention
to the hackers who continually
try to take the lives we have built
over the years away from us. We
are very fortunate to have our IT
people, Jay Hadley and his crew,
who continually work to protect
our City from those who will do
whatever they can to destroy as
much as they can. You never
know when you might be surprised. I read in a magazine
about a customer who went to
a very expensive restaurant and
asked the waiter, "What is the
catch of the day?” The waiter
with a big smile said, “You are!"
From Mayor Bob McGarvey,
God bless, and see you next
time.

Pam Young’s Corner
2 Ways to Stop
Being a Loser!
By Pam Young
The definition for “loser”
depends on the circumstance in
which a loser finds him or herself. One definition has to do
with losing at a sport, gambling
or some kind of game or competition. I’m the first one to say it
sucks to lose, but if we’ve been
raised by loving people who
taught us how to be good losers, we spare ourselves being the
“bad sport.”
So you lost at Monopoly and
landed on Park Place laden
with hotels, or you didn’t win
the Miss America contest; boo
hoo, big deal. It’s not like you
fell off or climbed down from
some social ladder, but you’re
still considered a loser. Anyway,
that’s not the kind of loser this
column is about.
SHEs Lose
I know for sure we SHEs
(Sidetracked Home Executives)
are losers, because we spend a
lot of our valuable time looking
for stuff. As SHEs, we’ve had a
lot of experience calling the Lost
& Found department in various
establishments like hotels, restaurants, theatres, airports etc.
and like the guy who doesn’t
take car maintenance seriously
and becomes known by the local
towing company in town, SHEs
usually get to know the Lost &
Found people in familiar institutions like the building at work,
the kids’ school, your school,
your gym etc.
I want to share two ways to
curb the search for your stuff.
Curb the search by
establishing a home for the
stuff you most frequently lose.
Just think how much time you
spend each year looking for your
stuff! (It’s probably at least a
couple of days.) It seems easier
at the time to just put those items
down somewhere, or out of sight
in a drawer, because there aren’t
dedicated places to put them.
When you establish homes for
each individual item, you’re on
your way to curbing those mad
searches, usually when you’re in
a hurry.
If we minded the rule “A place
for everything and everything in
its place,” we’d never have to
search for our glasses, car keys,
purse, coat, cell phone, shoes,
scissors, or tweezers again. To
break the cycle of losing things
and finding homes for stuff you
want to keep, I suggest you use
your imagination.
1. Use Drama and be a
Romantic
If you’re a romantic, you
could pretend to be Cupid. For
example, take an item that you
tend to spend a lot of time looking for, your car key for instance.
Pretend you’re a matchmaker
and you’re going to hook up
Miss Car Key with Mr. Wooden
Peg and Mr. Right Pocket (that
place in your purse where you
are going to put Miss Key whenever you’re out with your car).
As a matchmaker, you can relish seeing them together and be
so happy for the new couple, that
every time you see them together
you feel like Cupid. Awwwww.
2. Be the Care-Giver
Or, here’s another idea. If
you think of Miss Key as a real
person who’s directionally challenged, or a child who needs
your compassion and help to

make sure she gets home each
time she’s in your care, you’ll
have more fun establishing this
habit. Think of it as a “keysare-people-too” concept. Say to
your car key, “Okay Miss Key,
I’m going to find two homes for
you this very minute. At home,
it’s going to be a convenient spot
so when I head for the car you’ll
be right there in my face. When
I get out of the car after I’ve
driven somewhere, I’m going
to choose a home for you in my
purse where you’ll always go.”
Once you’ve established
homes for the common things
you tend to lose, the stories
you’ve attached to them will
help you practice using the new
homes until they are second
nature for you. Once you’ve considered yourself as a caregiver
for your often lost items, leaving
any of them in the wrong place
would be like a mom leaving her
toddler at the mall.
It may take about 21 days
before you’ll stop leaving things
where they don’t belong, but if
you keep remembering you’re
Cupid or the Care-Giving, you’ll
gradually establish the habit of
putting things back where they
belong.

essay! I hope you share this with
the losers in your life!

What It’s Good For
By Ronnie McBrayer
There is a single word that has
overtaken contemporary US society, one concept that defines life
in 21st century America: Security.
Before you complete your online
purchase, please establish a
“secure” connection. Buy this
alarm system or firearm to keep
your loved ones “secure.” Our
borders are porous and must be
“secured.”
Terrorists are planning horrendous acts, thus, everyone
has to go through “security.”
Buy this software; it will keep
your passwords, personal identity, and banking information
safe and “secure.” This election
vote for the President, Senator,
Congressman, or Dogcatcher that
will keep the nation “secure.”
So much for the days when
there was “nothing to fear but fear
itself.” Now there is everything
to fear. Thus cars, computers,
houses, politicians, pharmaceuticals, and wars are all marketed
with fear as the motivating factor.
Nowhere is this more evident than
when it comes to economics.
But to tell you the truth, if
you are trusting your money to
keep you “secure,” you probably
should be afraid; it will never give
you peace of mind. Don’t get me
wrong. We all need a few dollars
to keep food on the table, a roof
over our heads, and pay the bills.
Even a handful of investments,
mutual funds, and IRAs are good
for as far as they go. They just
can’t go far enough.
Why? Because once you have a
little pile of dough you have to go
on guard duty. You go into perpetual protection mode, always
on the wall, always peering out at
the economic boogeymen, always
defending, hedging, and hoarding.
This produces mind-racing, palmsweating, turf-defending worry,
something about as far from contentment as one can get.
It’s as elemental as this: Our
level of peace will depend upon
what we depend upon, no more
and no less. If the source of our
security and well-being is this
world’s economic promises, we
should hire better money managers, take more medication, and
stuff more gold coins under our
mattresses. But if our subsistence
is Christ, then no, life will not be
easy, but the source of his strength
is endless and the peace he offers
surpasses all understanding.
Now, this doesn’t mean we
build a bunker, stack canned
goods, and buy an arsenal. That’s
nothing but fear and anxiety run
amok. No, we joyfully live in this
world, but recognize it for how
fragile it is. We see that ultimately
it cannot meet our deepest needs.
That responsibility belongs to
God, because it’s not a matter of
“if” our stockpiles will fail us, it’s
a matter of “when.” That’s not
fear mongering, it’s simply stating
that trusting Christ to give us what
we need and sustain us is not near
as dangerous as trusting a system
that is bound to collapse.
To that end, a late friend of
mine was a Word War II veteran
who fought for General Patton.
He helped liberate a number of
concentration camps, was in
Germany when the unconditional
surrender was tendered in 1945,
and on those rare moments when
he spoke of the war, he told mind
bending stories.
One such story involved his
tank unit, late in the war, after it
had crossed the Rhine River and
was deep into Germany. Patton
was moving at blazing speed, as
was his style, so US forces had to
forage from the land around them,
as they were often without basic
supplies. One severe shortage was
paper goods, and war or not, this
was a crisis.
So the servicemen began using
German Reichsmarks, the German
currency, as toilet paper. twenties, fifties, thousands - it didn’t
matter the denomination - it was
just paper. The currency that had
driven the finances of Europe, that
had financed the effort for world
domination was now worthless,
useful only for the latrines and as
kindling to start fires.
My old friend would tell that
story, belly laugh at the memory
of it, but would then make the
same point each and every time:
“Money, in the end, ain’t worth
much, ‘cept for wipin’ your end.”
I think he was right.

Annual Sacramento Museum Day Back With Discounts
SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) -
Imagine. Explore. Discover. To the
delight of the greater Sacramento
area community, 25-five local
museums will offer free or halfpriced admission from 10 a.m. to
5 p.m. on Saturday, February 7th
during the 17th Annual Sacramento
Museum Day. During the highly
anticipated event, most of the
nearly 25 museums will offer free
admission while two additional
destinations located in residential
areas — the Sacramento Zoo and
Fairytale Town — will offer halfpriced admission to offset traffic
control and security costs.
Coordinated by the Sacramento
Association of Museums (SAM)
and the Sacramento Convention
& Visitors Bureau, Sacramento
Museum Day is a popular cultural
tradition designed to encourage
all members of the community
to experience the capital city’s
incredible wealth of art, history,
science, and wildlife at little or no
cost. Many of the museums are
within walking distance of each
other and easily accessible via
public transportation. Event coordinators suggest that guests plan
to visit no more than two or three
different museums throughout the
day in order to allow adequate
time to enjoy the experience and to
travel between individual sites.
In addition to offering free or
reduced cost admission, many of
the destinations are offering special activities during Sacramento
Museum Day. These offers
include an open cockpit day at the
Aerospace Museum of California
where most aircraft will be open
for viewing (weather permitting).
The Aerospace Museum will also
hold a children’s art contest.
Also, the Masonic Service
Bureau will be onsite at the
Discovery Museum Science &
Space Center, providing free electronic fingerprints of children for
their parents while the Sacramento
History Museum will offer handson gold panning activities for kids,
and the crowd favorite Sacramento
Children’s Museum mascot, Leo,
will make special appearances
throughout the day.
The Old Sacramento
Schoolhouse Museum will get into
the spirit by serving cake to celebrate the birthday of Laura Ingalls
Wilder and marking the anniversary of Sacramento’s first public
school in February 1854.
“Every year is unique and
offers new discoveries for
guests to explore on Sacramento
Museum Day,” said Sacramento
Association of Museums Chair
Kristina Swanson. “With a variety
of participating museums located
from Woodland to Roseville,
we’re pleased to introduce interested community members to the
amazing array of arts, culture, and
museum offerings available in the
greater Sacramento region.”
While admission will be free at
most of the participating museums
during Sacramento Museum Day,
admission to two destinations
located in residential areas are
half priced as follows: Sacramento
Zoo will cost $6 for adults, $4 for
children ages 2-11, and free for
children under two; Fairytale Town
is $2.75 per person and free for
children ages one and under.
Due to the popularity of
Sacramento Museum Day, some
locations must limit the number of
admissions for safety reasons. The
event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to
5 p.m. but the last guests will be
admitted to museums at 4 p.m.
More detailed information about
participating museums, addresses,
limitations, suggested parking, and
public transit options are available
at www.sacmuseums.org (click
on “Events”) or by calling the
Sacramento Convention & Visitors
Bureau at (916) 808-7777.
“We’d like to thank our new
sponsors—Bank of America and
Sacramento Covered—for helping
us to present this important event
and introduce the community to
the amazing array of arts, culture,
and museum offerings available
in the greater Sacramento region,”
said Swanson.

SWEDISH-INSPIRED COMIC
CRIME STORY “BACKSTROM”
LANDS ON FOX
A TV Review by Tim Riley
Looking to break out of a
slump, the FOX Television
Group’s fate is in the hands of
Dana Walden and Gary Newman,
the new chairmen and CEOs of
a network desperately seeking
programming hits, a fact they
acknowledged at the winter TV
press tour.
The network chiefs fully realize that FOX now languishes
in fourth place and its ratings
are challenged, but nonetheless
Newman expressed optimism,
noting the way to turn things
around is to “do the hard work,
get in business with the best talent, support their visions, focus
on one time period at a time.”
Though the hip-hop music
industry drama “Empire” just
recently debuted, the network
chiefs were only too pleased to
inform the winter gathering of
the nation’s TV critics in sunny
Pasadena that the freshman show
has already been renewed for a
second season.
Not all is bleak at FOX as
“Gotham” has proved to be one
of the rare hits that keeps growing its audience, while the wacky
dysfunctional crew in New
York’s 99th police precinct in
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” now in
its second season, delivers one of
the true bright spots in the comedy lineup.
“Bones” has been on the air
longer than anyone can remember, and the fact that Hart
Hanson, the creator of that series,
is hoping for another knockout
success with the comedic crime
procedural “Backstrom” is not
out of the realm of possibility,
even though it may be a challenge for a series to thrive where
the central character is so patently
unlovable.
Loosely based on a series of
books written by Swedish author
Leif GW Persson, “Backstrom”
is an Americanized version of a
subversive crime procedural in
which the titular character is an
offensive, irascible and unhealthy
detective who just happens to see
the worst in everyone as he goes
about the business of solving
crimes.
Lt. Everett Backstrom, played
effortlessly by Rainn Wilson,
who managed to torment his
colleagues in the long-running
series “The Office” as an obsessive paper salesman, has returned
from disgrace to lead Portland’s
newly-minted Special Crimes
Unit, which is tasked with navigating the city’s most sensitive
and serious cases.
Oddly enough, Backstrom
seems to be completely incapable of handling sensitive matters
of any kind. This is a man with
no filter, taking an offensive
attitude to a new level with
his persistently loutish behavior. An unrepentant misogynist,
Backstrom has no qualms about
expressing sexist and racist
opinions.
The interesting dynamic is that,
though Backstrom doesn’t play
well with others, the outlandish detective must work with a
diverse team of colleagues, from
the idealistic young female detective Nicole Gravely (Genevieve
Angelson) to veteran case-closer
and part-time pastor Sgt. John
Almond (Dennis Haysbert).
Backstrom is not only grumpy
and ornery, but he’s been given
orders by his doctor to “make
a friend” so as to improve his
health. Well, he’s also told to
Kevin Kitrell Ross

Unity of Sacramento
Host, Design Your Life

America’s Rising Stars
eat more vegetables, and neither instruction is likely to be
followed.
If Backstrom has any friend
at all, it may be his roommate
Gregory Valentine (Thomas
Dekker), a weird character in
his own right, who appears
to be the detective’s connection to the seedy underworld of
Portland flowing with drugs and
prostitution.
Other colleagues in
Backstrom’s orbit include the
quirky forensics expert Sgt.
Peter Niedermayer (Kristoffer
Polaha), good-guy Officer Frank
Moto (Page Kennedy), and civilian informant Nadia (Beatrice
Rosen), a Russian native oddly
well-connected.
The success of “Backstrom”
seemingly depends on the ability of Rainn Wilson’s character
to be funny enough with his sarcasm and quips so that he’s not
completely eclipsed by the detective’s offensive behavior. He’s
not so politely described as coming from a nether region.
I doubt anyone would really
want to knock back several beers
with Everett Backstrom. After all,
he’s not likable. The challenge
for the series will be its ability
to sustain ongoing interest in the
flawed detective’s sleuthing. For
now, “Backstrom” deserves a
chance for several viewings.
At the press tour conference,
Rainn Wilson, dutifully trying to
sell the series, observed that he
found his character more interesting because his life is falling
apart and that he would rather
“hang out with that person than a
slick procedural detective who’s
got all the answers.”
Later in the conference, Wilson
asked the audience to “take a little ride with us.” Admitting his
character is a jerk, Wilson noted
that we will learn “some really
interesting things about him and
his coping mechanisms, about his
family.”
Again, the challenge for
“Backstrom” is finding an audience willing to hang in for the 13
episodes for the arc of the darkly

Seas on Titan and
Your Heating Bill
ROCK DOC
By Dr. E. Kirsten Peters
Like most regions of the country, the area where I live suffered
through colder than average
temperatures in mid-November. If you pay for your heating
bill month by month, you are
now facing the sticker shock that
results from those bitter times.
Happy holidays.
I heat my home with a natural gas furnace supplemented
by a woodstove in the living
room. It’s a small stove, really
designed only for emergencies and for fires built for fun
on a Sunday afternoon. In other
words, it doesn’t heat the whole
house, and it works only with
constant tending. But during
our cold snap, I built some fires
in the woodstove to try to take
the edge off the natural gas bill
I was incurring. The woodstove
is in the same room as the thermostat for the house, though, so
heating with it caused the temperatures in the rest of the house
to crash. Still, I was doing what
I could to lessen what I would
later owe the power company.
The main ingredient in natural
gas is methane. It’s colorless and
odorless, so utility companies
add a “rotten egg” smell to it.
That way, if there is a leak, your
nose becomes aware of it and
you can evacuate your home,
then call 911.
Methane occurs elsewhere
in the solar system besides the
Earth. It’s abundant on Titan,
one of the moons of Saturn.
On Titan, methane is a liquid
because temperature there is
almost 300 degrees below zero
Fahrenheit. Scientists have now
plumbed the depths of three
frigid seas of methane on Titan.
An article online at sciencenews.
org told me that the second largest of the seas, called Ligeia
Mare, holds enough methane to
fill Lake Michigan three times.
NASA’s Cassini probe
reached the neighborhood of
Saturn in 2004 and it’s still sending back data. The spacecraft
was told to send radar pulses
directed toward Titan’s seas.
Results in some places included
two sets of reflected energy.
The first set of waves were from
radar bouncing off the surface
of the methane sea. The second,
weaker, set of waves were from
radar bouncing off the floor of
the methane sea, under the surface. Together, these indicate the
depth of the liquid methane.
The shallow parts of the sea
are some 20 to 40 yards deep. In
other parts of the Ligeia Mare,
however, the methane is so deep
no reflections from the bottom
were detected, indicating places
that are more than 200 yards
deep.
It’s amazing to me what we
are continuing to learn about
our solar system -- information
ranging from data beamed back
from a spacecraft landing on a
comet to this information about
Titan’s methane seas. I’m also
amazed by what I owe the power
company for methane I used in
November -- but I’m trying to
keep some perspective about it.

association, savings association, or savings bank
specified in section 5102 of the Financial Code and

any liability for any incorrectness of the street
address and other common designation, if any,
shown herein. Said sale will be made in an “AS

expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are
considering bidding on this property lien, you should
understand that there are risks involved in bidding
at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien,
not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at
a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you
to free and clear ownership of the property. You
should also be aware that the lien being auctioned
off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder
at the auction, you are or may be responsible
for paying off all liens senior to the lien being
auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to
the property. You are encouraged to investigate the
existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that
may exist on this property by contacting the county
recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either
of which may charge you a fee for this information.
If you consult either of these resources, you should
be aware that the same lender may hold more than
one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.
NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date
shown on this notice of sale may be postponed
one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary,
trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of
the California Civil Code. The law requires that
information about trustee sale postponements
be made available to you and to the public, as a
courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you
wish to learn whether your sale date has been
postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled
time and date for the sale of this property, you may
call, 916-939-0772 for information regarding the
trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site, www.
nationwideposting.com, for information regarding
the sale of this property, using the file number
assigned to this case, T.S.# 9448-4254. Information
about postponements that are very short in duration
or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale
may not immediately be reflected in the telephone
information or on the internet Web site. The best
way to verify postponement information is to attend
the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to
convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s
sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of
monies paid to the Trustee and the successful
bidder shall have no further recourse. NBS Default

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are
considering bidding on this property lien, you should
understand that there are risks involved in bidding
at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien,
not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at
a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you
to free and clear ownership of the property. You
should also be aware that the lien being auctioned
off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder
at the auction, you are or may be responsible for
paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned
off, before you can receive clear title to the property.
You are encouraged to investigate the existence,
priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist
on this property by contacting the county recorder’s
office or a title insurance company, either of which
may charge you a fee for this information. If you
consult either of these resources, you should be
aware that the same lender may hold more than one
mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE
TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on
this notice of sale may be postponed one or more
times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a
court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California
Civil Code. The law requires that information about
trustee sale postponements be made available to
you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not
present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether
your sale date has been postponed, and, if
applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the
sale of this property, you may call 714-573-1965
for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit
this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com ,
using the file number assigned to this foreclosure
by the Trustee: CA-14-637700-HL . Information
about postponements that are very short in duration
or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale
may not immediately be reflected in the telephone
information or on the Internet Web site. The best
way to verify postponement information is to attend
the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee
disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the
property address or other common designation,
if any, shown herein. If no street address or other
common designation is shown, directions to
the location of the property may be obtained by
sending a written request to the beneficiary within
10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice
of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title
for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and
exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies
paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall
have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside
for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be
entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The
Purchaser shall have no further recourse against
the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s
Attorney. If you have previously been discharged
through bankruptcy, you may have been released
of personal liability for this loan in which case this
letter is intended to exercise the note holders
right’s against the real property only. As required
by law, you are hereby notified that a negative
credit report reflecting on your credit record may
be submitted to a credit report agency if you fail to

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF
RAYMOND OTHELLO CRUTCHER (descendent)
ESTATE NO. 34-2014-00171769
To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, and
contingent creditors of and persons who may be
otherwise interested in the will or estate, or both of
RAYMOND OTHELLO CRUTCHER (deceased):
A petition has been filed by MERLIN CRUTCHER
AND MICHAEL CRUTCHER (BROTHERS) in the
Superior Court of California, County of Sacramento,
requesting that MERLIN CRUTCHER be appointed
as Executor to administer the estate of the decedent.
The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils,
if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils
are available for examination in the file kept by the court.
The petition requests authority to administer the
estate under the Independent Administration of Estates
Act. (This authority will allow the executor to take many
actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking
certain very important actions, however, the executor
will be required to give notice to interested persons
unless they have waived notice or have consented to
the proposed action.) The independent administration
authority will be granted unless an interested person
files an objection to the petition and shows good
cause why the court should not grant the authority.
Bond is not required.
A hearing on the petition will be held in this court
as follows: February 26, 2015, 9:00 a.m. in Dept.
No. 129 at Ridgeway Family Relations Courthouse,
3341 Power Inn Road, Sacramento, CA 95826.
IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you
should appear at the hearing and state your objections
or file written objections with the court before the hearing.
Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney.
IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor
of the deceased, you must file your claim with the court
and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed
by the court within the later of either (1) four months from
the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal
representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California
Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or
personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the
California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal
authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want
to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.
YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If
you are interested in the estate, you may file with the
court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the
filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or

BIDDERS: If you are considering
bidding on this property lien, you
should understand that there are
risks involved in bidding at a trustee
auction. You will be bidding on a
lien, not on the property itself.
Placing the highest bid at a trustee
auction does not automatically
entitle you to free and clear
ownership of the property. You
should also be aware that the lien
being auctioned off may be a junior
lien. If you are the highest bidder at
the auction, you are or may be
responsible for paying off all liens
senior to the lien being auctioned off,
before you can receive clear title to
the property. You are encouraged to
investigate the existence, priority,
and size of outstanding liens that
may exist on this property by
contacting the county recorder's
office or a title insurance company,
either of which may charge you a fee
for this information. If you consult
either of these resources, you
should be aware that the same
lender may hold more than one
mortgage or deed of trust on the
property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY
OWNER: The sale date shown on
this notice of sale may be postponed
one or more times by the
mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a
court, pursuant to Section 2924g of
the California Civil Code. The law
requires that information about
trustee sale postponements be
made available to you and to the
public, as a courtesy to those not
present at the sale. If you wish to
learn whether your sale date has
been postponed, and, if applicable,
the rescheduled time and date for
the sale of this property, you may
call (800) 280-2832 or visit this
Internet Web site www.auction.com,
using the file number assigned to
this case 14-0086-11. Information
about postponements that are very
short in duration or that occur close
in time to the scheduled sale may
not immediately be reflected in the
telephone information or on the
Internet Web site. The best way to
verify postponement information is to
attend the scheduled sale.

Churches Conclude Four-Week Winter Shelter
Continued from Page 1
leaders to visit the host sites and
see how smoothly the process
actually was. “It’s real easy to
just turn the other way,” Stafford
said. “But when you’re face to
face with somebody, you’ve got
to deal with them as a human
being.”
Without winter shelter, options
are very limited for those on the
streets. Howard and Cheryle
Hicks of Rancho Cordova are
both 57 and have been homeless
for around three months; they
were grateful for the nights they
were able to spend in the shelter.
“Without it,” Howard Hicks said,
“you just keep moving. Or you
freeze like a popsicle.”
Every person’s situation is
different. Five years ago, Kim
Swope (35) was making $80,000
a year. “I have a Bachelor’s
degree,” Swope said. “I was a
normal, functioning member of
society just like everybody else.
But my daughter ran away and
I had a breakdown, and I lost
everything.”
Now she is struggling to get
back everything she lost. “It’s
been eye opening, and a humbling experience that I needed to
go through,” Swope said. “This
is my first time in this experience. I’m like a fish out of
water.”
Some of the homeless have
been able to receive counseling and find resources while at
the shelter. “Sacramento SelfHelp Housing came to our place
one night and they found aid for
one person and housing for three
others,” said Mike Mitchum,
pastor at Cordova Neighborhood
Church. “That was a highlight.
And to be able to perhaps provide more resources for them,
I think I would like to see that
happen next year.”
Volunteers responded enthusiastically at every shelter host
site. Claudia Beigel, parish coordinator for St. John Vianney host
site, said she was pleased with
the response. “So many people
came forward to volunteer and
to give money, to give of their
time,” Beigel said. “I’m looking
forward to doing it next year.”
With all its challenges and difficulties, organizers, volunteers,
and guests all feel the effort was
worth it. “I think that we were
able to connect with some of the
homeless population in Rancho
and have conversations, make
them feel not invisible,” Edwards
said. “We did a little good and we
may never know how far it goes.
We were one link in their chain
back to getting on their feet. So
yes, it was, I think, totally, totally
worth it.”

CORDOVA SPORTS
Mueller Resigns as
Cordova Football Coach
By Mike Bush
RANCHO CORDOVA, CA (MPG) - For the last three seasons, Vance Mueller has guided the Cordova High
School (CHS) varsity football teams from dark
days of being on the end of blowouts in Capital
Athletic League games to a six-game winning
streak to start the 2014 season, plus a shot at a SacJoaquin Section playoff berth.
But the former Los Angeles Raiders fullback
won’t be returning for the upcoming season.
The Grapevine Independent learned that Mueller
has resigned as coach. In an email, he would not
specify reasons for his resignation other than
“personal.”
“That is true,” said Mueller when asked through
email about his resignation.
According to Michele Brown, assistant principal
at CHS, Mueller “notified us (this month) that he
was resigning due to personal reasons.”
This past season, Mueller led the Lancers to a
6-0 mark, one of program’s best starts since Max
Miller ran the program during his second tenure in
the 2000s. During the win streak, Cordova shutout two of its six opponents and held the others to
a touchdown.
Cordova beat Galt 36-8 last October in the Sierra
Valley Conference opener, which also was the
Lancers’ homecoming game. In its SVC finale at
Rosemont, Cordova fell short of its bid to earn a
playoff berth by losing a heart-breaking 10-8 contest to the host Wolverines.
The tough loss had the Lancer finish their season
at 6-4 and 1-4 in the SVC. High school football
teams in the section need at least two wins in conference play in order to advance into the playoffs.
The two seasons prior, the Lancers had a combined record 3-17, including only two wins in CAL
action and losing most of their games by three or
more touchdowns before returning to the SVC this
school year.
“He has done a remarkable job at CHS, and has

football players after a home game last season. After
three seasons, Mueller, who guided the Lancers to a
6-0 start and was one game shy of qualifying for a SacJoaquin Section playoff berth, resigned as head coach.

made a positive impact on our football program
and on our students through his character-first
coaching,” said Brown in an email. “We are sad to
lose him but respect his decision and wish him the
absolute best.”
Mueller preached academics over athletics. Each
week during this past season and the first two seasons, he conducted study hall before practices.
Brown said that the coaching position was
posted on www.edjoin.org for internal and external
candidates to apply.
“We’ll begin screening applicants once the position closes (earlier this week),” said Brown via
email.
A follow-up on Mueller’s sudden resignation,
plus the process of hiring a new Lancer grid coach
will run in an upcoming issue of the Grapevine
Independent.

Cordova Boys Basketball Team
Remains in First Place in SVC
By Mike Bush
RANCHO CORDOVA, CA (MPG) - In
a key matchup against two of the
Sierra Valley Conference’s (SVC)
top teams, the Cordova High
School boys basketball team got
an early edge on Liberty Ranch
to secure first place.
The Lancers used a first quarter run over the Hawks in their
first meeting on January 22nd
that finished with a 97-82 win.
Along with another win over El
Dorado early last week, Cordova
is 5-0 in the SVC and 17-5 overall. This also includes Tuesday’s
75-34 conference road win over
Rosemont.
In its game at Liberty Ranch,
Cordova jumped out to a 23-8
lead in the first quarter. That
ignited to a 49-30 halftime lead.
“We just came out real intense (in
the first quarter) ready to play,”
said Cordova head coach Fletcher
Johnson. “We pushed the ball up
the floor.”
The third quarter started with
the Hawks outscoring the Lancers
30-24 to trim their lead to 63-51
entering the fourth quarter. Foul
trouble hurt Cordova, which
switched to a zone defense that
allowed Liberty Ranch to score
often before the final quarter.
Then in the fourth quarter,
Cordova returned to its scoring
ways on offense with a 31-24
advantage for the win.
Jordan Roberson surpassed
his average scoring per game
for Cordova with an amazing 44
points. This included 16 shots
from the field and 8 of 10 from
the free throw line. This is the
second time this season Roberson
has scored 40 or more points in
a game.
Following Roberson in scoring was JaQuan Lewis with 20
points and Christian Munoz with
14. EJ Turner had six points,
Chris Johnson had five, and Kyle

In last week’s issue of the Grapevine,
the photos for “Cordova Boys
Basketball Too Much for Union Mine”
and “Lady Lancers Improve to 2-1 in
SVC Action” were incorrectly credited to another photographer. The
photos should have been credited to
Rick Sloan. We regret the error.

Lorena and Damion Baldwin had
four each.
Cordova grabbed 40 rebounds,
with Munoz ending the game
with a double-double as he pulled
down 14 boards. Lewis had eight
and Johnson had six. Roberson
and Lewis had three steals each,
and the Lancers had eight as a
team.
Coach Johnson had a hunch
his team would go undefeated in
the first half of conference play.
Now it’s just a matter of playing
with the same or higher intensity entering the second half of
SVC action. “I’m just hoping we
can sustain the high level of concentration in the second half,”
Johnson said.
Cordova 86, El Dorado 32
The Lancers also had another
big first quarter in their January
20th home game against the
Cougars. Cordova outscored El
Dorado 27-9 and ran to a 44-21
halftime lead.
The Lancers’ defense held
the Cougars to only four points
in the third quarter and dropped
25 points on their end to expand
their lead to 69-25 entering the
fourth quarter.
Roberson had 30 points in the
Lancers’ win. He was one of
four players who scored in double figures. Other Lancer players
with double-digit scores were
Lewis with 13 points, Johnson
with 12, and Turner with 11.
Movses Avagyan followed with
six points, Munoz and Lamont
Guidry had four each, Baldwin
and Ben Danielyan had two each,
and Joseph Gomez had one.
Cordova had 33 rebounds, with
Roberson, Baldwin, and Munoz
scoring five each. Roberson also
had four of the Lancers’ 19 steals.
On Thursday, January 22nd,
Cordova opened the second
round of SVC action at Galt.
On Tuesday, February 3rd, the
Lancers host Union Mine and
next Friday, February 6th, they
play at El Dorado. Game times
are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. H
Lady Lancers Split SVC Contests
By Mike Bush
RANCHO CORDOVA, CA (MPG) - As it entered its Sierra
Valley Conference (SVC) home game earlier this
week, the Cordova High School girls basketball
team produced a winning record.
The Lady Lancers were 3-1 in the SVC and 14-7
overall as they hosted Rosemont. On January 23rd
at home, Cordova was too much for Liberty Ranch,
59-34.
Against the visiting Lady Hawks, the Lady
Lancers jumped out to a 21-4 first quarter lead
and coasted to a 30-11 halftime lead. Cordova outscored Liberty Ranch 29-23 in the second half.
Kelsie Graf was one of two Cordova players who
scored in double figures with 13 points, followed
by Cauje Curney with 12. Alyssa Moreno was next
in scoring with seven points; Adrienne Hammond
joined teammates Jullissa Reis and Nikki Jones
with five points each; Chevyela Howard, Midori
Mekata, and Alyssa Wilson had three points each;
and Leila Cooper had two and Brianna Clark had
one.
Cordova had 47 rebounds in the game. Reis
had seven boards, Graf had six, and Curney and
Cooper had five each.
El Dorado 62, Cordova 51
In an SVC road game on January 20th, the Lady
Lancers scored 21 points in the fourth quarter and
held the Lady Cougars to 14 points. But Cordova
was hurt when it scored only five points in the first
quarter and trailed 23-15 at halftime.
Curney had 14 points and Clark had eight to lead

the Lancers. Jones had six points and Moreno had
five. Reis had seven of the Lancers’ 34 rebounds,
and Cooper and Hammond had six boards each.
After closing out SVC play against Rosemont,
Cordova opened the second round on Thursday,
January 22nd at home against Galt. On Tuesday,
February 3rd, the Lady Lancers play at Union Mine
and host El Dorado on Thursday, February 5th. All
games are scheduled to tip off at 7:30 p.m. H
END of the
BENCH
by Gerry Scholl
A Golden Age Revisited, For Some
It was Sunday, May 25, 1975.
Most of our small, brotherly group
—- scattered around Northern
California by the forces of the
passing of time —- had made a pilgrimage, of sorts, to “sit simply in
that room again.”
We gathered together to share
the choicest moments of a Golden
Age.
It was the wish from Bob
Dylan’s Dream come true —- for
just a few unforgettable hours.
If any of us had had the money,
we would have given “ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat”
to be there to share an everlasting
memory.
Based in a joy for the game we
had shared and loved, followed and
watched and played many times
together through four years —- for
a day, the little room was our basketball mecca. The game had been
one of the many things that had
joined us together and bound us at
our core, for a space in time.
For an improbable climax to
the 1974-75 NBA season, and to
the surprise of the entire basketball world, “our” team of Warriors
was only four quarters away from a
crowning achievement —- a world
championship, a Golden State Age.
The Golden State Warriors finished that regular season with a
Western Conference-best record
of 48-34, and survived hotlycontested playoff series over the
Seattle SuperSonics (remember
them?) and the powerful Chicago
Bulls to reach the finals. They went
into it as heavy underdogs that
were predicted to be swept away by
the dominant Washington Bullets
(60-22), that had beaten the Boston
Celtics (also, 60-22) to get there,
led by point guard Kevin Porter,
All-Star guard Phil Chenier (Cal),
and two huge future Hall of Fame
front court men in Elvin Hayes and
Wes Unseld.
The Warriors were comprised of
the great HOF forward Rick Barry
(No. 24, in honor of Willie Mays),
who was named MVP of the series,
averaging 29.5 ppg., and a bunch
of other guys. Led by coach Al
Attles, the other guys —- older veterans Jeff Mullins and Bill Bridges;
younger veterans Butch Beard and
Clifford Ray; young guards with
Bay Area roots, Charles Johnson
(Cal) and Phil Smith (a rookie
from USF); rookie forward Jamaal
Wilkes (UCLA); youngsters
Derrek Dickey (“double-D”) and
Charles Dudley (“Hopper”), and
long and lean 6-11 shot-blocker
George Johnson —- were key.
Attles was considered a pioneer
in the tactics of using all of the
players on the roster as instrumental pieces of the team’s success on
the floor throughout the season and
even into the playoffs, when most
coaches typically reduce the number and minutes of players in their
rotations during games.
Shockingly, the Warriors won
the first three games of the series
by a combined total of 15 points.
Two of those wins came at the Cow
Palace in Daly City, because there
was so little faith in the Warriors
ever advancing so far that their
home court, the Oakland Coliseum,
was booked up with other events
and the games had to be moved.
We sat watching and bemoaning
the events of the early minutes of
the finale, as the Warriors trailed
by ten points at the end of the first
quarter. While Barry struggled, at
times, and Attles was ultimately
ejected from the game after drawing a pair of technical fouls for
complaining about the atrocious
officiating (inducing, as was our
custom, a flurry of rolled-up, dirty
socks thrown across the room at
the TV screen), it was the team’s
depth that kept them close and able
to pull the game out in the closing
minutes.
The Warriors’ bench players
outscored the Bullets’ bench, 32-8,
as they held on for a 96-95 win and
a 4-0 sweep of their own in what is
still considered by many (40 years
later) to be the biggest upset in the
history of sports —- still the W’s
one and only title since moving
west from Philadelphia in 1962.
But, what have we here?! Could
that change this season? Are this
year’s Warriors a team of destiny?
In much the same manner as
that championship team, the 201415 W’s are complimenting their
star guards tandem of Steph Curry
and Klay Thompson by using their
deep and productive roster to sustain unparalleled success thus far
during the regular season, as the
team is on a record-setting pace
with an NBA best record of 36-6
through Sunday’s win over Boston.
Several days ago, a Warriors
game was televised on one station,
while a Sacramento Kings game,
simultaneously, was on another —clicking back and forth, it was a
ready-made study in contrasts.
If the Warriors’ style is one
that the Kings’ brass —- owner
Vivek Ranadive, general manager
Pete D’leasandro and three other
members of the basketball operations staff, Chris Mullin, Mitch
Richmond and Mike Bratz (all five
with former ties to the Warriors)
—- wants to emulate, they have a
long way to go. Good luck, fellas.
Hope you see it in your lifetime.
In one game, the Kings were
jacking up jump shot after jump
shot, while the Brooklyn Nets were
making lay-up after lay-up. The
Nets scored twenty points in the
paint while building a 36-24 lead
after one quarter, eliciting boos
from the Kings’ home court fans.
The fans have seen the show before
—- for the last decade, or so. The
Kings reached the playoffs eight
straight seasons ending in 2005-06,
but haven’t been close since.
Beleaguered interim coach
Tyrone Corbin watched as the
Nets’ lead grew to twenty points
in the second quarter. The Kings
rallied, but true to their form they
couldn’t close the deal. Again, it
was too little, too late. When defeat
was assured in the waning seconds,
along came the all-too-familiar
refrain from Kings broadcaster
Grant Napier, “That should do it.”
On the other channel, the
“Splash Brothers” were doing their
thing and center Andrew Bogut
was stuffing Dwight Howard twice
in a row while the fans in the 103rd
consecutive sellout at Oracle Arena
were going wild. First-year coach
Steve Kerr confidently watched
his team build a twenty-point lead
by the half on the strength of 21
fast break points, while holding
the Houston Rockets to 30-percent
shooting.
The Warriors had been as bad,
or worse, than the Kings for some
time (generations of fans of the two
have had few golden moments),
but the most recent influx of talent
in Oakland has evolved into, possibly, the best team in the league.
The W’s are the top-rated offensive and defensive team, and rank
at, or near the top, in most statistical categories, while the fast-fading
Kings do not.
It came as no surprise that the
Warriors ran out to an early big
lead when the two teams faced
each other last Friday, 26-8, six
minutes in. To the Kings’ credit,
they rallied again to a tie-score
early in the third quarter, but Klay
Thompson was suddenly “on
fire!” and scored an NBA-record
37 points in the third period in an
unbelievable, all-time shooting display (13-for-13, including 9-for-9
from three-point range).
The Warriors won going away,
126-101. The Warriors are on their
way; the Kings are going away. H

Lost 46–10 vs. Chicago Bears
Super Bowl XXXI
Lost 35–21 vs. Green Bay Packers
Super Bowl XXXVI
Won 20–17 vs. St. Louis Rams
Super Bowl XXXVIII
Seattle’s Russell Wilson and New England’s Tom Brady both know what it’s like to raise the Vince Lombardi Trophy after a Super Bowl win.
SUPER BOWL XLIX
Why the Seahawks will win
1. RUSSELL WILSON
The 26-year-old Wilson is the youngest quarterback to start two Super Bowls
and also the first to start two Super Bowls in his first three seasons to begin
his career. His 42 wins in three years, playoffs included, are the most by a
starting quarterback in his first three NFL seasons. Wilson, who had three
100-yard rushing games this season and led all QBs with 849 yards, is taking
on a Patriots team that has not allowed a quarterback to run for 100 yards in
268 games under coach Bill Belichick. However, three of the Pats’ four losses
this season came against QBs that were top eight in rushing yards among QBs.
Wilson is 10–0 against Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks, including a comeback win against Tom Brady in 2012.
2. BEAST MODE
Marshawn Lynch and Wilson helped the Seahawks to the No. 1 rushing attack
in the league this season at 172.6 yards per game. Lynch averaged 4.7 yards
per carry for 1,306 yards and was tied with DeMarco Murray for a leagueleading 13 rushing touchdowns this season. He added another four receiving
TDs on 37 catches. Lynch has had 20-plus carries seven times in the 11 games
since the start of November and has averaged 109.9 yards in those seven
games. He has averaged 5.5 yards per carry on 39 carries during the postseason, including season highs in carries (25) and yards (157) in the NFC Championship Game. The Patriots had the league’s ninth-best rush defense (104.3
ypg) in the regular season but did allow Baltimore’s Justin Forsett to carry 24
times for 129 yards and a receiving score in the Divisional round.
3. U MAD BRO?!
Rated as Pro Football Focus’ third-best cornerback during the regular season
and its second-best during this postseason, Richard Sherman is a nightmare
matchup. He’s picked off six passes and allowed just one TD pass this season,
according to PFF. Sherman has only been thrown at seven times, allowing
three catches for 51 yards and no scores through two playoff games. When he
last faced Brady, Sherman allowed just two catches on seven targets with an
interception and an infamous "U Mad Bro?" Tweet after the game as trash
talk to Brady. After the game, Sherman told Brady, “We’re better than you.
You’re just a man — we’re a team.” Sherman, who injured his elbow in the
NFC Conference Championship, said he will be 100 percent for the Super
Bowl. He will likely draw Brady’s favorite target, receiver Julian Edelman, in
coverage. It will be a very interesting matchup to watch Sherman on Sunday.
Won 32–29 vs. Carolina Panthers
Athlon Sports
Why the Patriots will win
1. BRADY & BELICHICK
This is the sixth Super Bowl appearance in 13 years for the quarterbackhead coach duo of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, the most for a pairing in
NFL history. They won the first three the played in before a pair of losses
to the New York Giants in 2007 and 2011. Seattle, however, is 6–0 against
regular-season MVP quarterbacks since 2012, including Brady. The 62-yearold Belichick will face off against the 63-year-old Pete Carroll in the first
matchup in Super Bowl history where the head coaches of both teams are
60 or older. Carroll, who was fired by the Patriots in 1999 and replaced by
Belichick, can become the first coach to win back-to-back Super Bowls
since Belichick did so in 2004 and 2005.
2. GRONK SPIKE
New England tight end Rob Gronkowski pulled in 12 touchdowns during
the regular season to tie for the league lead amongst tight ends. He’s added
another two trips to the end zone in the postseason, and has scored in each
of the last five games — emphasizing each trip to paydirt with his signature spiking of the ball in the end zone. The Patriots’ receiving yardage
leader and second-most targeted pass catcher, Gronkowski draws a Seahawks team that allowed 11 touchdowns to tight ends in the regular season,
tied for third most in the league. Seattle safety Kam Chancellor should draw
much of the coverage against Gronkowski. According to Pro Football
Focus, Chancellor allowed just one touchdown this season. Gronkowski
caught six balls for 61 yards on nine targets when he faced off against an
injured Chancellor in Seattle in 2012.
3. BLOUNT FORCE
The Patriots are riding high with LeGarrette Blount as their power running
back. After just three attempts for one yard in the Divisional Round against
Baltimore, the 250-pounder carried 30 times for 148 yards and three scores in
the AFC Championship Game win over Indianapolis. He is going against a
Seattle defense that has not been lights out against the run in the postseason,
allowing Green Bay to rush for 135 yards on 4.5 per carry and Dallas to run
for 145 yards on 5.2 per carry. This is after having the third-best rush defense
during the regular season — allowing 1,304 yards on
3.4 yards per carry. If the Seahawks’ secondary
plays well, the Pats may ground and pound.
OUTSIDE THE HUDDLE
AIRING OUT DEFLATEGATE
The news leading up to the Super Bowl has been dominated by the under-inflated
footballs used in New England for the AFC title game blowout win against Indianapolis. Whether it was Bill Belichick having little to say on the matter, outside
of seemingly throwing quarterback Tom Brady under the bus about the matter, or
Brady saying he and his head coach are on the "same page," DeflateGate is not
going away. This week, FOX Sports reported that the NFL's investigation has turned
toward a Patriots locker room attendant who was seen on surveillance video taking
the footballs from the officials' locker room to another room in the stadium before
taking them to the field. Attorney Ted Wells, who is leading the investigation, said
in a statement this week that he expects the investigation to take at least several
more weeks. … More head coaching hires have come down the pike with a lot of recycling going on. John Fox parted ways with the Denver Broncos and landed the
same position with the Chicago Bears, where he replaced Marc Trestman. Gary
Kubiak, the longtime backup quarterback to John Elway in Denver (1983-91), is
back in the Mile High City as the Broncos' new head coach. This is his second NFL
head-coaching stint after having been
the head man of the Houston Texans from 2006-13. Jack Del Rio, leaves
his job as Denver's defensive coordinator
to take over the AFC West-rival Oakland
Raiders. It is also Del Rio's second run at being
an NFL head coach after leading the Jacksonville
Jaguars from 2003-11. First-time head coaches include the San Francisco 49ers
promoting defensive line coach Jim Tomusla and the New York Jets hiring Arizona
Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. The Atlanta Falcons are the only
team left without a head coach, but are expected to hire Seattle defensive coordinator Dan Quinn after the Super Bowl. ... The Walter Payton Man of the Year finalists are San Francisco receiver Anquan Boldin, Carolina linebacker Thomas Davis
and Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The award recognizes a player's offthe-field community service as well as his playing ability.
