ADVERTISE HERE ▻ MORE INFORMATION ▻ Welcome to Laguna Woods Village …
>> AND GOOD MORNING EVERYONE.
WELCOME TO "THISDAY."
IT IS FRIDAY JULY 20th.
A LITTLE HUMID OUT THERE.
I'LL TELL YOU ABOUT THE WEATHER
IN JUST A MINUTE.
ON OUR SHOW WE HAVE FROM THE
CITY COUNCIL TODAY MAYOR CAROL
MOORE.
SHE'S GOING TO TELL US ABOUT
SOME EVENTS AT THE COUNCIL.
AND ALSO A SEGMENT FROM THE
STERLING FINANCIAL ADVISORS.
AND THEN WE HAVE DR. CHANG FROM
THE CANCER INSTITUTE.
DR. CHANG HAS BEEN ON COUPLE OF
TIMES BEFORE.
IT'S GOOD TO HAVE HIM BACK.
THIRD DOES HAVE THEIR NEW
RESIDENT ORIENTATION.
THEY DON'T LIST A ROO ON THIS
WHERE TO MEET.
BUT YOU DO NEED TO CALL.
IT IS AT 9:00 IN THE MORNING.
AND NOW IF YOU MISSED THAT, NOT
A PROBLEM, BOTH THIRD AND UNITED
THEY DO THESE USUALLY A COUPLE
OF TIMES A MONTH.
SO YOU CAN ALWAYS MAYBE IF YOU
CALL LATER AND SET YOURSELF UP
YOU CAN DO THAT FOR YOURSELF AS
WELL.
LET'S GET TO THE WEATHER.
I WAS BACK IN THE NASHVILLE,
TENNESSEE, KENUCKY ON OUR
VACATION.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO KIND
OF FILLED IN FOR ME AND I GET
BACK HOME, AND HUMIDITY LEVEL
WAS HIGHER HERE THAN IT WAS BACK
THERE.
IT WAS KUHNED OF AMAZING.
SO WE'VE GOT A COUPLE OF DAYS OF
STILL GOING ON.
AS YOU'VE SEEN FOR THE PAST TWO
OR THREE DAYS SCATTERED CLOUDS,
THE HUMIDITY LEVEL AND ALSO A
CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS IN THE
OUTLYING AREAS MEANING THE
MOUNTAINS AND THE HIGH DESERT.
THAT WILL CONTINUE FOR A COUPLE
OF DAYS.
KIND OF A TRANSITION DAY ON
SUNDAY, AND THEN YEAH, FOLKS
WE'RE GOING TO PUMP THE HEAT
BACK UP AS WE GET INTO MONDAY,
AND TUESDAY.
MONDAY ALL THE WAY THRUGH
FRIDAY OF NEXT FRIDAY WE'RE
GOING TO BE FROM 89 TO 95°.
SO THE HEAT IS GOING TO BE BACK
ON HERE IN A FEW DAYS.
KIND OF MILD TEMPERATURES RIGHT
NOW.
LET'S LOOK AROUND THE STATE AND
THE STATE IS ABSOLUTELY
BEAUTIFUL THIS WEEKEND.
EVERYWHERE YOU GO IT IS GOING TO
BE SUNNY.
NOW THE COASTAL AND THE NORTH
COAST AND THE BAY AREA, THE
CENTRAL COAST THEY HAVE A CHANCE
OF A LITTLE BIT OF THE MORNING
FOG BUT THAT'S GOING TO BE ABOUT
IT.
YOU CAN SEE EVERYTHING WARMS UP
NICELY.
LOOK AT LAKE TAHOE.
BEAUTIFUL UP THERE.
BOTH — WELL, PRIMARILY YOSEMITE
THIS TIME OF THE YEAR THEY CAN
BE IN THE HIGHER 90s.
REALLY PLEASANT.
LAKE ARROWHEAD AT 76.
AND PALM SPRINGS.
AGAIN NEXT WEEK, MONDAY, TUESDAY
ALL THE WAY THROUGH FRIDAY,
SORRY IT'S GOING TO BE REALLY
HOT ONCE AGAIN.
WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK IN JUST A
WELCOME BACK.
STAFF HAS DISCOVERED THAT THERE
ARE MANY UNAUTHORIZED
ALTERATIONS GOING ON, SAND SO
THIS POLICY WHICH THE BOARD
VOTED ON JULY 10TH WILL TAKE
AFFECT SEPTEMBER THE FIRST.
AND THE POLICY REALLY HAS TO DO
WITH A NEW FINE OF $300 FOR
UNAUTHORIZED ALTERATIONS.
STAFF HAS GONE OUT AND
DISCOVERED LIKE I SAID, MANY,
MANY NEW ALTERATIONS THAT ARE
UNAUTHORIZED.
AND WE'RE TRYING TO BRING IT ALL
BACK TO COMPLIANCE.
THE SITUATION IS THAT WHEN ONE
OF OUR MEMBERS SELLS THEIR UNIT,
INSPECTION DONE TO ALTERATIONS
THAT THERE ARE UNAUTHORIZED
ALTERATIONS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN
APPROVED, AND THEN ALL OF THOSE
HAVE TO BE BROUGHT UP TO OUR
CODE AND ALSO THE CITY CODE.
SO JULY 10TH WAS WHEN THE BOARD
WENT AHEAD AND THEY DID THE
FIRST HEARING AND VOTE FOR THIS
PARTICULAR POLICY.
AND IT WILL BE VOTED ON FOR
PERMANENT AT OUR NEXT BOARD
MEETING.
AND THE FINE WE'RE LOOKING AT IS
$300.
IT TAKES APPROXIMATELY FIVE
HOURS BETWEEN COMPLIANCE AND OUR
ALTERATION STAFF TO DO ALL OF
THE RESEARCH AND THAT'S THE
REASON SO WE ARE NOT LOSING
MONEY STAFF TIME AND SO IT'S
PAID FOR THAT WAY.
>> OKAY.
WHAT KIND OF ALTERATIONS ARE WE
TALKING ABOUT THAT.
ARE THEY TAKING OUT WALLS OR
UNPERMITTED STUFF.
>> ANYTHING THAT IS REQUIRED AND
THOSE ITEMS WE DISCUSSED IN THE
PAST, BUT IF THEY GO TO WINDOWS
7 THEY CAN GET ALL OF THE
INFORMATION FOR WHAT IS REQUIRED
FOR AN ALTERATION.
>> GREAT.
SO WHAT DO YOU GUYS WHEN AN
UNAUTHORIZED WORK IS DISCOVERED.
YOU HAVE AN INSPECTOR GOES OUT
AND THEN WHAT HAPPENS AFTER
THAT.
SO A STOP WORK NOTICE IS ISSUED,
SAND AND EVERYTHING IS STOPPED.
THEN A TICKET IS WRITTEN.
A
AND IT'S ENTERED INTO THE SYSTEM
THROUGH THE COMPLIANCE
DEPARTMENT, AND THERE WILL BE A
FOLLOW UP TO BE SURE WHEN AN
INSPECTOR GOES BACK OUT WITHIN
FIVE DAYS THAT THE ALTERATION IS
PAPERWORK IS DONE SAND THEY GETA
PERMIT THROUGH AN APPROVAL
THROUGH OUR DEPARTMENT
DOWNSTAIRS THROUGH OUR PERMIT
DEPARTMENT, AND ALO THE CITY.
AND THEN IF THEY FIND THEY'RE
CONTINUING TH WORK.
ONCE A TICKET IS ISSUED, AND
COMPLIANCE IS INVOLVED, THE
MATTER IS SCHEDULED FOR A
DISC
DISCIPLINARIAN HEARING WITH THE
BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO DETERMINE
WHAT THE DISCIPLINE MERRITT
WOULD BE, AND THE EXECUTIVE
HEARING COMMITTEE WILL TALK WITH
THE MEMBER AND AN THE PERIOD OF
DISCUSSION, THEN A FEE IS ALSO
>> WHAT HAPPENS IF — HERE YOU
HAD $350 IS GOING TO BE THE FEE.
IS THERE GOING TO BE ANYTHING ON
TOP OF THAT.
THEY WILL BE FINED BY THE BOARD
BUT THE UNAUTHORIZED AT RATION
FEE IS APPROXIMATELY $300, AND
THAT WILL IN EFFECT SEPTEMBER
1ST ONCE THE BOARD APPROVES IT
AT OUR NEXT BOARD MEETING AND
THEN I ALSO NOTICED EVEN THOUGH
THEY PAY THE FEE THAT DOESN'T
EXCLUDE THEM FROM ANYTHING
ADDITIONAL.
>> THAT'S RIGHT.
THE FINES THAT HAVE BEEN GIVEN
TO THEM THROUGH THE BOARD AND
THE HEARINGS AND COMPLIANCE AND
ALL.
>> OKAY.
>> AND IT DOESN'T EGG ZEMENT
THEM FROM ANY OF THEIR FEES THEY
HAVE TO PAY FOR THE PERMITS.
>> SO THAT GOES IN EFFECT
SEPTEMBER 1ST.
>> SO ANYBODY THAT HAS HAD
ANYTHING PRIOR TO THAT THEY'RE
KIND OF OFF THE HOOK?
>> NOT NECESSARILY.
DO NOT DO ANY UNAUTHORIZED
ALTERATIONS IS WHAT YOU'RE
TRYING TO SAY.
>> THAT'S RIGH.
JUST MAKE IT EASIER WHEN YOU
HAVE THE PROCESS OF THE PROCESS
OF RESALE INSPECTION WHEN YOU
DECIDE TO SELL.
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK RIGHT AFTER
DR. CHANG IS WITH US.
IF FOLKS DIDN'T SEE OUR SEGMENT
ABOUT A MONTH AGO.
AND YOU FOLKS ARE LOCATED DOWN
IN SAN DIEGO, ABOUT WHERE?
>> ABOUT WHAT IS THE OLD "TOP
GUN" NAVAL AIR BASE.
>> DID YOU REALLY SEE THAT.
>> THEY FLY OVER OUR CENTER.
THAT'S COOL.
>> VERY GOOD.
>> WELL, THAT'S KIND OF A NEAT
LITTLE TRIVIA THING THERE.
TODAY YOUR PRIMARY SUBJECT YOU
WANT TO TALK ABOUT IS PROSTATE
CANCER.
AND TELL US ABOUT THE WAY YOU GO
ABOUT THIS.
I THINK I EVEN HEARD A FEW
PEOPLE HAVE GONE DOWN THERE.
IT'S A WHOLE DIFFERENT WAY OF
DOING THINGS AND AS YOU TALKED
ABOUT WITH THIS PROTON THERAPY,
THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE HOW YOU
CAN PINPOINT THE CANCER.
THAT'S RIGHT.
>> BEFORE WE TALK SPECIFICALLY
ABOUT THE PROSTATE CANCER.
MAYBE A LITTLE BRIEF OVERVIEW OF
THE PROSTATE OR EXCUSE ME ABOUT
THE PROTON THERAPY AND HOW THAT
DIFFERS.
PROCEED TON THERAPY IS A VERY
PRECISE SENSE OF RADIOTHERAPY.
IT ALLOWS US TO DELIVER THE
RADIATION WITHOUT GIVING SO MUCH
RADIATION TO THE HEALTHY TISSUES
AROUND THE AREA.
AND THE SANDY HOOKING INSIDE
BOTH THAT CIRCLE.
AND TALK BEFORE WE CAN ALL OF
THE INSIDE TH CIRCLE.
AND SIMILARLY IN THE HUMAN BODY
IT RESPONDS WHETHER RADIATION IS
COMING FROM THE X-RAYS OR PROTON
THERAPY.
CAN WE PLACE ALL OF THE
RADIATION WHERE THE CANCER, AND
AVOID THE HEALTHY TISSUE AROUND
THE AREA.
OBVIOUSLY THERE'S A HUGE BENEFIT
TO THAT.
AND ESPECIALLY FOR SOMETHING
LIKE PROSTATE CANCER YOU'RE
MENTIONING.
THE MOST CANCER COMMON CANCER
FOR MEN IN THE UNITED STATES.
AND THEY TYPICALLY GROW SLOWLY.
AS WE ARE EXPERIENCING LONGER,
SAND HEALTHIER LIFE.
ONE OF THE WAYS IS RADIOTHERAPY
FROM THE OUTSIDE IN.
POINTING A BEAM.
BUT THERE'S SOME CRITICAL ORGANS
THAT SIT RIGHT THERE.
NAMELY WE HAVE THE RECTUM AND
THE COLON, AND THE BLADDER THAT
SITS RIGHT ON TOP.
AND WITH STANDARD TREATMENTS WE
CAN IRRITATE THOSE ORGANS.
BUT MEN CAN HAVE WORSENED SIDE
EFFECT.
THE PROSTATE GETS LARGER, AND
MEN AREN'T ABLE TO EMPTY THEIR
BLADDER AS WELL.
MAKE IT WORSE.
AND SO IF I WAS PROTONS CAN WE
DO AND MINIMIZE OR GET RID OF
ANY RADIATION TO THE BLADDER ON
TOP.
AND THAT'S A VERY GOOD WAY OF
POINTING THAT RADIATION IN
THERE.
NOW I UNDERSTAND THAT IF SOMEONE
COMES DOWN TO GET THAT TYPE OF
TREATMENT YOU .POINT THE AREA.
THEY'VE GOT TO STAY VERY STILL
OBVIOUSLY.
IT MAY TAKE SEVERAL TREATMENTS.
THAT'S CORRECT.
THE TYPICALLY MEN WILL COME TO
OUR CENTER ONCE A DAY.
IT'S AN HALF AN HOUR.
THEY DON'T FEEL ANYTHING, SEE
ANYTHING.
THERE'S NO CUTTING INVOLVED.
IT'S LIKE GETTING AN X-RAY SCAN.
YOU LAY VERY STILL ON THE TABLE.
AND THEN PATIENT IS ABLE TO GET
UP AND WALK ON OUT.
>> WE HAVE HAD SEVERAL RESIDENTS
COME ON DOWN TO OUR CENTER FOR
RADIATION.
ABOUT AN HOUR DOWN.
PLAY SOME GOLF IN THE AFTERNOON,
AND DRIVE BACK HOME.
>> GREAT AREA TO PLAY GOLF.
THIS IS SOMETHING I WANT TO
EXPLORE.
AND HOW IS IT DETERMINED THAT
YOUR TREATMENT IS THE RIGHT ONE
VERSUS MAYBE SOMETHING ELSE.
DOES IT DEPEND HOW BIG THE
CANCER, AND HOW FAR IT'S GONE.
WE'RE HAPP TO WORK WITH ANY OF
THE PATIENT'S PHYSICIAN IS THE
PATIENT A CANDIDATE FOR THIS
TREATMENT OR NOT.
THERE'S OTHER TREATMENTS
INCLUDING SURGERY FOR REMOVAL OF
THE PROSTATE.
THAT CAN BE MORE DIFFICULT.
FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS HEART
DISEASE OR HAS A BAD HIP.
THEY CAN'T UNDERGO THE
ANESTHESIA.
>> I REMEMBER LAST TIME YOU WERE
ON YOU WERE TELLING ME ALTHOUGH
YOU FOLKS SPECIALIZE IN THIS
THIS TYPE OF THERAPY HAS BEEN
GOING ON FOR A LONG TIME.
THIS TYPE OF TREATMENT WAS
STARTED IN 1954.
IT'S BEEN REFINED, AND
CONSISTENTLY IMPROVED UPON IN
THE LAST SEVERAL DECADES.
AND A LOT OF THIS TECHNOLOGY
ACTUALLY CAME ABOUT AS A RESULT
OF TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENTS FROM
COMPUTERS AND SUCH WHO WERE
INVOLVED IN THE INITIAL WORLD
WAR II RADIATION PROJECT.
AND HOW TO DEVELOP THESE TYPES
OF TREATMENTS ALL CAME FROM
THOSE INITIAL SCIENTIFIC
DISCOVERS.
HOW MANY PATIENTS HAVE YOU FOLKS
HAD DOWN THERE.
WE'VE TREATED MANY, MANY
PATIENTS.
ONE OF OUR PHYSICIANS DR.
DR. KHALABASI.
HE'S TREATED MORE PATIENTS THAN
ANYONE IN THE WORLD WITH PROTON
THERAPY.
OBVIOUSLY IT'S A GREAT WAY TO
GO.
IF IT FITS THE PATIENTS'S NEEDS.
HERE'S — THIS IS THE APPARATUS.
THAT'S CORRECT.
THIS IS THE ROOM WHERE THE
PATIENT LAYS IN AND THE MACHINE
THAT GOES AROUND, AND AS AND WE
DO LECTURES.
IF YOU GUYS WANT TO COME DOWN
WE'RE HAPPY TO SHOW YOU AROUND
THE CENTER.
THIS IS A BETTER PICTURE.
BUT IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S AN
ENVIRONMENT THAT'S GOING TO BE
COMFORTABLE FOR THE PATIENT.
OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE TO PUT THEM
DOWN THERE.
A
AND THE THERAPY DOES ITS THING,
AND THEY GET UP AND GO.
THE PATIENTS CHOOSE THE MUSIC -.
AND THIS IS THE MOST ADVANCED
PIECE OF TECHNOLOGY EVER
DESIGNED FOR MEDICAL TREATMENTS
IN THE HISTORY OF HUMANKIND.
YES, IT IS.
AND SO WE'RE HAPPY TO SHOW IT
OFF.
AND THERE'S PEOPLE WHO WANT TO
COME DOWN.
PLEASE GIVE US A CALL.
AT THE WEBSITE.
CALIFORNIA PROTONS.com.
>> AND AGAIN YOU FOLKS ARE DOWN
IN THE SAN DIEGO AREA.
NOT TOO FAR AWAY.
COMPANIES WE WORK WITH.ANCE –
M
MEDICARE COVERS THE TREATMENT.
>> QUICK QUESTION FOR YOU.
BESIDES PRAU TATE.
AGAIN IT DEPENDS AT WHAT STAGE
IT'S AT.
>> WE TREAT A LOT OF PATIENTS
WITH BRAIN TUMORS, AND BREAST
CANCER IS ANOTHER BIG THING WE
DEAL WITH.
>> DR. CHANG IT'S ALWAYS A
PLEASURE TO SEE.
THANK YOU FOR COMING UP.
WE APPRECIATE IT.
AGAIN THE WEBSITE IS
CALIFORNIAPROTONS.com.
WE'RE GOING TO HAVE SOME
BROCHURES FOR PEOPLE TO PICK UP
I'D LIKE TO WELCOME TO OUR SHOW
THE MAYOR OF THE CITY OF LAGUNA
WOODS, CAROL MOORE.
ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE YOU.
GREAT TO SEE YOU.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR COMING
BY.
LOTS GONG ON IN THE CITY.
A
AND THEY DO THEIR MARKETING.
SHOWS HOW THE PERCEPTION OF WHAT
WE THINK SHOULD GO ON AND WHAT'S
REALLY GOING ON ARE OFTEN AT
ODDS AND IT'S BECAUSE WE THINK
OF BACWARDS.
THE WAY WE DID IT IS ALWAYS
GOING TO BE THE WAY WE DO IT.
AND THINGS ARE CHANGING HERE.
IT'S NOT LIKE IT WAS.
AND SO WE'RE ADDRESSING THINGS
DIFFERENTLY.
YOU BET.
WE'RE REALLY PLEASED AND THEN
THERE'S THE SHOPPING THE CLOSEST
ONE HERE IS ACROSS THE STREET.
AND IN DOWN THE STREET THEY'RE
DOING UPGRADING.
WE THINK IT'S LOOKING GOOD.
TO SUPPORT OUR BUSINESSES.
AND OF COURSE THE WILLOW TREE
MOVING ALONG.
>> IT'S LOOKING GOOD.
>> TELL US ABOUT WASTE
MANAGEMENT PLAN.
WHEN YOU SEE ME GOING TOO LONG
ON IT.
ONCE I START ON WATER I HAVE A
TENDENCY TO GO BACK TO THE
1800s.
I DID POINT THAT OUT.
ACTUALLY IN CALIFORNIA IN THE
1800s WE ACTUALLY THE WATER LOGS
CAME FROM THAT PERIOD.
FIRST IN USE.
EVEN THAT PERIOD RIGHT THERE
THEY WERE STARTING TO MAKE LAWS
AND IT'S IN OUR CONSTITUTION
ABOUT THE WISE USE OF WATER.
THE FARMERS IN ORANGE COUNTY
THEY WERE ARTESIAN WELLS.
SO THEY WERE USING IT.
NOT KNOWING, AND NOT REALIZING
THERE'S AN END TO ALL THINGS,
AND EVENTUALLY THEY WERE TAPPING
INTO THE AQUIFER, AND SUCKING IT
DRY.
AND THE SALTWATER INTRUSION.
AND SO THOSE FARMERS BEGAN TO
REALIZE WHEN IT RAINED THEY
BETTER LET THE WATER FLOOD AND
SOAK BACK IN.
WHICH THEY DID.
AND BEGAN TO RE-CHARGE THE
AQUIFERS.
SO THAT WAS OUR RECOGNITION OF
SCBAUT HOW IMPORTANT IT IS.
I'M POINTING THIS OUT EVENTUALLY
THEN THE WATER MANAGEMENT AND I
SERVE ON THE EXECUTIVE
COMMITTEE, THAT WATER
MANAGEMENT, WE IN OUR CITY, OUR
WATER RUNS INTO TWO DIFFERENT
WATERSHEDS.
PART OF IT RUNS INTO BACK BAY
AND PART OF IT RUNS INTO ALISO
CREEK WHICH IS PART OF SAN
DIEGO'S WATERSHED.
CAPTURING ANY WASTE THAT MEANS
CIGARETTE BUTTS THAT PEOPLE
THROW INTO THE GUTTER.
THOSE CANNOT WASHING THEMSELVES
DOWN TO THE BACK BAY OR LAGUNA
BEACH.
YOU'RE RESPONSIBLE.
THE CITY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR
THIS.
SO WE'RE PROBABLY AT THIS POINT
GOING TO ASK I PERSONALLY DO IT.
AN
AND THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF
WATER RESOURCES.
THEY'RE THE WATER MASTER SO TO
SPEAK.
AND THEN THAT TRICKLES DOWN.
WE'RE EACH GOING TO BE
RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING AND
KEEPING THE WATER CLEAN.
>> DID YOU BLINK TWICE.
NO.
THESE PEOPLE AT THE COUNTY THEIR
RESPONSIBILITY, COUNTY HAS A
DEPARTMENT AND THOSE PEOPLE ARE
RESPONSIBLE FOR HELPING GUIDE US
IN THE WATERSHEDS COMING UP WITH
WAYS TO TAP INTO FUNDS.
BECAUSE YOU'VE PROBABLY NOTICED
FROM TIME TO TIME YOU VOTE FOR A
WATER PROECT.
AND THEN YOU FORGET ABOUT IT.
WHAT HAPPENED TO PROP 1.
WELL THE MONEY IS THERE.
IT'S BEING SET ASIDE.
AND IT HELPED PAY FOR OUR WATERY
CYCLING.
THEY HAD TO PAYBACK A
CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF MONEY.
IT HELPS THEM ADDRESS THE
RECYCLE PROJECTS WE HAVE HERE.
THAT'S WHAT THAT MEETING WAS
ABOUT.
THEY CAME AND SPOKE AND TALKED
ABOUT THE DIFFERENT PROJECTS
THAT ARE AVAILABLE, AND HOW
SOUTH COUNTY HAS BEEN ABLE TO
TAP INTO THOSE PROJECTS.
THE DAIRY PROJECT.
THAT'S KIND OF WHERE IT IS.
PRADO DAM I DIDN'T MENTION.
THEY DID AND REALIZE WE BUILD
HOUSES WE CAN'T KEEP DOING THAT.
PRADO DAM WAS A RESULT OF THAT
TO HELP SAVE THE WATER IN
ADDITION TO PREVENT FLOODING.
EVEN NOW WHEN WE WASH OUR HANDS
THE SUN PROTECTION MATERIAL THAT
YOU PUT ON YOUR BODY, THAT GETS
WASHED IN THERE.
IN ADDITION TO ALL OF THE OTHER
MATERIALS.
SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A LOT OF
MATERIAL WE'RE CONSTANTLY TRYING
TO MAKE SURE DOEN'T GET —
BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO RE-USE
THAT WATER.
WE SHOULD TRY TO PROTECT IT AS
MUCH AS WE CAN.
NOW THE NEXT THING YOU WANT TO
TALK ABOUT IS THE CITY LIBRARY
ACTIVITY.
AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT AGAIN
FOLKS GET SUPPORT FROM.
OUR LIBRARY IS PAR OF THE
COUNTY SYSTEM.
UNFORTUNATELY I DON'T HAVE
ENOUGH SPACE.
PEOPLE COMING INTO THE LIBRARY,
AND JUST SIMPLY CONTRIBUTING
BECAUSE WE HAVE SOME FORMS
THERE.
IF YOU WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO
HELP SUPPORT OUR LIBRARY BECAUSE
WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE LARGER
SPACE.
WE NEED MORE SPACE.
AND SOMETIMES THE LINE IS —
THERE'S A LINE THERE.
BECAUSE OF THE LARGER SYSTEM
THAT WE APPEAL TO.
AND THE TYPES OF MATERIAL THAT .
IN ADDITION TO THE ELECTRONIC
EQUIPMENT.
SO ANYWAY, YES.
THANK YOU.
AND WE HAVE PEOPLE STARTING TO
DO THAT AND WE REALLY APPRECIATE
THERE BEING SO INTERESTED IN
THEIR NEIGHBORS, AND GIVING
BACK.
THAT'S NICE.
LET'S NOW TALK ABOUT THE DOG
PARK.
>> IT'S GOING TO BE INTERESTING
BECAUSE THE DOG PARK WE CAME UP
TO FINALIZING THE RULES.
THE DOG PARK COMMITTEE.
ISN'T THAT CUTE
>> HOW COULD YOU OT LIKE A
SMILING DOG.
>> THAT'S ONE THING ABOUT DOGS.
YOU CAN LEAVE AND BE GONE ALL
DAY, AND THEY'RE NOT EATING ON
TIME.
WHEN YOU COME IN THERE I HAVE
BEEN SO ANNOYED.
THEY AREN'T.
AND THEY'RE VERY HAPPY TO SEE.
THE DOG PARK, THE DOG PARK IS
PROGRESSING.
A
AND THE DOG PARK SUPPORT GROUP
HAS FORMULATED THEIR RULES.
WE ARE ABLE TO SUPPORT WHAT'S
APPROPRIATE IN THE DOG PARK, AND
SO PEOPLE CAN SUPPORT THEIR OWN
ANIMAL BY CONTRIBUTING.
AND THERE'S A LARGE WALL THERE.
SO THEY CAN COMMEMORATE DO
WHATEVER THEY WANT TO.
RIGHT NOW THIS FORM WILL GO
UNTIL OCTOBER 31st WHEN WE'LL
CUT IT OFF.
AND THAT WILL BE THOSE THAT
DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING FOR THE
DOG PARK.
IT'S A CHANCE TO BE CREATIVE.
A CHANCE A LITTLE MEMORY IF YOU
CARE IF THAT'S ON YOUR MIND.
THAT'S NICE TOO.
>> IT WILL BE LIKE A LITTLE
PLAQUE OR BRICK.
THE WALL WAS IS FAIRLY SIZBLE.
PROBABLY SEE THEM ONLINE TOO.
>> NOW, SOMETHING THAT'S GOING
ON TODAY IS THE SHREDDING EVENT.
>> YES.
>> I HAVE THE TIME BUT WHERE IS
THE LOCATION.
>> IT'S RIGHT THERE NEXT DOOR TO
THE CITY HALL.
THE CITY HALL PARKING LOT IS NOT
LARGE ENOUGH TO DO IT.
IT'S ST. NICHOLAS CHURCH.
AND YOU JUST BRING THE BAG IN
AND I BELIEVE THERE'S A
LIMITATION ON THE NUMBER OF
BAGS.
I THINK NO MORE THAN FIVE.
>> WHICH IS A LOT.
>> THIS IS NOT NEWSPAPERS TOO.
RECYCLED MATERIALS SHOULD GO
WITH THE RYE CYCLED.
DO IT TODAY 12:30 TO 3:30 AT
ST. NICHOLAS.
RIGHT NEXT TO CITY HALL.
OF THESE TYPE OF THINGS.GET RID-
AND ELECTRONICS.
NOBODY GETS STUFF REPAIRED.
THEY CAN'T.
>> I HAVE A PRINTER.
AND THE PRINTER WORKS FINE.
THE PROBLEM ISN'T UPDATES TO
YOUR COMPUTER.
THE PRINTER CAN NO LONGER MATCH
THE COMPUTER.
EVEN THOUGH IF YOU HAD AN OLDER
COMPUTER.
THEN YOU COULD USE IT.
SO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM.
IT'S NOT JUST A MATTER OF
SOFTWARE FOR IT.
IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO BRING THE
COMPUTER TO MATCH IT.
AND ON SATURDAY YOU CAN PUT
THOSE KINDS OF THINGS BY THE
DUMPSTERS, AND THEY WILL BE
PICKED UP.
>> PLEASE DO THAT.
SATURDAY.
BUT REMEMBER, THAT IS THIS
SATURDAY AND GO AHEAD AND DO
THAT.
JUST BE THROWING THOSE THINGS
AWAY.
>> WE TALKED ABOUT SEEING HOW
THINGS HAVE CHANGED, THE CALTRAN
AND OCTA HAVE HAD PLANS TO
CHANGE THE INTERCHANGE.
THEY'RE TEN-YEAR-OLD KNOWLEDGE
OF WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO DO.
NO SPECIFIC PLAN HOW THAT MIGHT
WORK.
WE NEED TO TURN OUT AT THE CITY
TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY
UNDERSTAND THAT WE CERTAINLY DO
NOT WANT AN INTERCHANGE OR A
WIDENING OF A FREEWAY THAT WOULD
AFFECT THE HOUSES AND THAT WOULD
BE GATES 5, 6, GATE 1 ALONG
THERE.
AND I WAS JUST SPEAKING TO
SOMETHING THAT IS I DON'T HAVE
TO ONE WILL NOT BE AS WARM AS
THE OTHER.
THE PROBLEM YOURSELF.
MEASURE IT YOURSELF.
WHEN YOU'RE DRIVING AROUND CHECK
THE TEMPERATURE THAT THE OUTSIDE
TEMPERATURE WHEN YOU'RE IN
HEAVILY PAVED AREAS LIKE IRVINE,
AND FOREST.
AND THEN DRIVE INSIDE OUR GATES
AND LOOK AT THE TEMPERATURES.
NOT INFREQUENTLY OUR
TEMPERATURES CAN BE 5 DEGREES OR
MORE BELOW.
WHY WOULD THAT BE.
WE HAVE A LOT OF THE OPEN SPACE
INSIDE OUR GATES.
ALL TH TREES.
THE SHADING.
THE GRASS THEY'RE NOT ABSORBING
THE HEAT LIKE A PAVED ROAD IS,
PAVED BUILDINGS, GLASS
REFLECTING BACK THE HEAT.
YOU CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE RIGHT
THERE.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT.
AND I CAN REMEMBER FIVE, SIX
YEARS AGO THEY WERE PLANNING ON
DOING THAT LIKE WITHIN TWO OR
THREE YEARS, AND THEN I STOPPED
HEARING ABOUT IT AND THERE'S NO
REAL UPDATES TO THAT.
I WAS WONDERING WHAT'S
HAPPENING.
ARE THEY WAITING FOR WHAT WAS
CALLED THE LAGUNA HILLS MALL TO
BE COMPLETED.
WHENEVER THAT WILL BE.
WHAT'S GOING ON.
OF COURSE WERE WATCHING THAT.
THAT SEEMS TO HAVE HAD SOME REAL
STOP AND GO SITUATIONS THERE.
AND OFF RAMPS AND SO FORTH.
THAT'S ONE OF THEIR MAIN GOALS
OR DUTIES I SUPPOSE I SHOULD
SAY.
THERE ARE CHANGES.
AND I THINK THAT O CCA TA AT A
MEETING THERE THEY SAID PEOPLE
DO NOT WANT MORE LAND AND
HOUSING TAKEN FOR FREEWAYS.
THEY DO NOT WANT THAT.
ONLY ONE MAYOR OBJECTED TO THAT.
IT'S NOT WHETHER YOU LIKE THAT
OR NOT.
IT'S A FACT.
YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT THE FACTS.
THE FACTS PEOPLE DON'T WANT
THAT.
IF THEY DON'T WANT THAT AND YOU
HAVE 18 LANES AS WE DO WITH THE
405 AND THE 5 MEET.
AND 18 LANES IS NOT SUFFICIENT
THEN IS IT 25.
WHERE IS THE POINT HERE?
WE'RE STARTING TO UNDERSTAND
HERE, PEOPLE ARE SAYING WE'VE
GOT TO ADDRESS THIS SLIGHTLY
DIFFERENTLY.
ARE WE USING THE ROADS
EFFICIENTLY.
WE HAVE CLOTS.
YOUR BLOOD FLOWS TO YOUR BODY
AND YOUR LITTLE RED CORPUSCLES
AND YOUR WHITE BUMP INTO IT EACH
OTHER.
IF WE CAN DO IT IN OUR BODY.
THEY'RE CROWDED.
WHY CAN'T WE DO THAT ON THE
FREEWAYS BECAUSE WE'RE NOT USING
THEM EFFICIENTLY.
THERE'S SOME THINGS WE CAN DO.
THAT MEETING IS WEDNESDAY JULY
25th AT 5:30.
I WANT TO THANK YOU.
I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR COMING
ON.
I ALWAYS ENJOY COMING.
>> LOTS OF GOOD STUFF GOING ON
IN THE CITY.
WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
>> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HAVING
ME.
HI FOLKS.
THIS IS DAN OHWEILER.
FROM STERLING FINANCIAL
ADVISORS.
HE HAS INTERVIEWED ME WITH
VARIOUS RETIREMENT TOPICS OVER
THE YEARS, SAND WE'VE DECIDED T
MAYBE TAKE A LITTLE BIT
DIFFERENT APPROACH AND EDUCATING
YOU ON SOME THINGS THAT WE THINK
ARE IMPORTANT IN SETTING UP A
SECURE RETIREMENT.
WE PUT ON RETIREMENT SEMINARS
WITH OUR COMPANY STERLING
FINANCIAL ADVISORS AND WE DO
THAT FRM TIME TO TIME.
ONCE A WEEK OR ONCE EVERY TWO
WEEKS.
WE HAVE PEOPLE COME TO OUR
SEMINARS.
WE HAVE THEM WRITE DOWN
QUESTIONS IN REGARDS TO SOME
THINGS THEY WOULD LIKE TO HEAR
IN THE SEMINAR, AND WHAT IS OF
INTEREST TO THEM.
INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH ALL OF THE
QUESTIONS PROBABLY FALL WITHIN
FOUR OR FIVE CATEGORIES.
RETIREMENT INCOME.
WHAT SHOULD I TAKE SOCIAL
SECURITY.
KUUMED OF TALK WHAT WE THINK IS
IMPORTANT IN THOSE DIFFERENT
CATEGORIES AND SO TODAY WE'RE
GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT
REQUIRED MINIMUM DISTRIBUTIONS
FROM RETIREMENT PLANS.
THERE SEEMS TO BE A LOT OF
CONFUSION HOW WE GO ABOUT TAKING
THAT.
DO YOU HAVE TO TAKE — IN FACT
TAKE THOSE DISTRIBUTIONS.
I THINK WE'LL TALK ABOUT
REQUIRED MINIMUM DISTRIBUTIONS.
AND WE'LL TALK ABOUT THE BASICS
OF REQUIRED MINIMUM
DISTRIBUTIONS.
IF YOU CAN FOLLOW ME.
THE FIRST THING TO KNOW AT SOME
POINT THE GOVERNMENT HAS TOLD US
WE HAVE TO START TAKING MONEY
OUT AT AGE 70 AND A HALF.
SO 70 AND A HALF IT'S CALLED
REQUIRED MINIMUM DISTRIBUTIONS.
AND THAT MEANS THE GOVERNMENT
SAYS TO YOU IF YOU HAVE AN IRA
OR 401(K).
ANY TYPE OF RETIREMENT PLAN
WHERE WE'RE OBLIGATED TO TAKE
THOSE REQUIREMENTS OUT WE HAVE
TO START THAT AT AGE 70 AND A
HALF.
SOMEBODY HAS ASKED WHEN BY 70
AND A HALF.
WELL, IT'S APRIL 1ST OF THE YEAR
FOLLOWING WHEN YOU TURN 70 AND A
HALF.
SO LET'S ASSUME HERE WE ARE
LET'S SAY JUNE 1ST WE TURN AGE
70 AND A HALF.
THAT MEANS WE HAVE UNTIL THE
FOLLOWING APRIL, APRIL 1ST
BEFORE WE HAVE TO TAKE OUR FIRST
REQUIRED MINIMUM DISTRIBUTION.
IF WE HAVE A 300 HUNDREDS IR
AA
I'M JUST TAKING THAT AS AN
EXAMPLE.
AND YOU HAVE UNTIL THE FOLLOWING
APRIL 1ST UNTIL YOU HAVE TO TAKE
YOUR FIRST REQUIRED MINIMUM
DISTRIBUTION.
NOW IF YOU WAIT TO APRIL 1ST OF
THE FOLLOWING DAY THEN BY
DECEMBER 31st YOU HAVE TO TAKE
ANOTHER DISTRIBUTIONS FOR AGE
71.
SO YOU WOULD HAVE TWO
DISTRIBUTIONS IN THE FIRST YEAR
IF YOU WAIT UNTIL APRIL 1ST.
TAX WISE.
TAX PLANNING YOU MAY WANT TO
CONSIDER WHETHER IT MAKES SENSE
TO WAIT UNTIL APRIL 1ST.
YOU'LL HAVE A DOUBLE
DISTRIBUTION THAT YEAR.
INGS THERE'S A PUBLICATION
CALLED PUBLICATION 590 OF THE
IRS CODE.
IT'S A PUBLICATION THAT THE IRS
PUBLISHES THAT TALKS ABOUT THE
DISTRIBUTIONS FROM IRA OR
401(K)s.
THEY LIST A SCHEDULE OF LIFE
EXPECTANCY.
FOR AGE 70 AND A HALF IT IS
27.4.
SO THAT MEANS NEXT YEAR WHEN
YOU'RE AGE 71 IT WOULD BE 26.5.
AND 25.7 OR WHATEVER THAT FACTOR
YOU HAVE TO TAKE THIS FACTOR,
SAND INTO 3$300,000.
THAT STEARNS OUT TO BE THE
$2,925.
AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO TAKE IT
OUT BY APIL 1ST OF THE
FOLLOWING YEAR.
NOW, WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON'T
TAKE IT OUT.
WELL THERE'S A PROBLEM THERE.
IF YOU DON'T TAKE OUT $10,950
WHATEVER YOU DON'T TAKE OUT IS
SUBJECTED TO A 50% PENALTY.
THAT'S A HIGH PENALTY.
SO IF WE ONLY TAKE OUT $5,950.
WE ARE $5,000 SHORT.
THAT MEANS THAT YOU WOULD END UP
PAYING 50% PENALTY ON THAT WHICH
EQUATES TO $2,500.
AND SO YOU WOULD END UP HAVING
TO PAY A PENALTY OF $2500 THAT
VERY FIRST YEAR IF YOU FAILED TO
TAKE OUT ALL $10,950 AND YOU
WERE IN THIS EXAMPLE SHORT
$5,000.
SO YOU DON'T WANT TO FORGET
TAKING UTE YOUR REQUIRED MINIMUM
DISTRIBUTION.
YOU ALWAYS WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU
DO THAT NO MATTER.
YOU'LL HAVE TO PAY THAT PENALTY
PLUS YOU STILL HAVE TO GO BACK
AND TAKE OUT THAT THE $5,000
THAT YOU DIDN'T TAKE WHICH
CREATES MORE TAXES ON YOUR TAX
FORM.
SO YOU ALWAYS WANT TO REMEMBER
FOLKS TO TAKE OUT YOUR REQUIRED
MINIMUM DISTRIBUTIONS.
THERE'S NO WAY TO AVOID REQUIRED
MINIMUM DISTRIBUTIONS FROM OUR
RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS BECAUSE THE
GOVERNMENT HAS ALLOWED US TO
DEFER THE TAXES OVER A PERIOD OF
TIME.
WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT A SOME
OPTIONS WE HAVE, AND THAT CAN
