VMHS Drama Dept Presents... Curtains, a musical comedy whodunit

Set in 1959 Boston, this is a ‘show within a show’ type of musical murder mystery by Rupert Holmes, John Kander, Fred Ebb and Peter Stone. This is a more modern musical, it debuted on Broadway in March of 2007. During its run it was nominated for multiple Tony Awards, with David Hyde Pierce winning ‘Best Actor’ for his portrayal of Lt Frank Cioffi. According to a VMHS Drama Department insider, this version is a bit tamer than the Original Broadway production was, in case you might have seen it in LA or New York.

The VMHS production is directed by Cory Finch and starts off at the end of the play within the play (Robbin Hood). Towards the end of the song, the lead actor collapses in the background. She is taken away and the cast breaks in to ‘What Kind of Man?’ – A song about how they hate the critics who said the show (Robbin Hood) was bad. As a guy writing up a show, I found it wonderfully ironic.

A pleasant, afforable surprise in Moreno Valley: Harkins Movie Theater

On 10/21/2015, I took my family to see "Back To The Future: Part 2" at Harkins Moreno
Valley mall location. I live in Temecula, and didn't really want to drive out to Moreno Valley, but this was the closest screening of #bttf to our home. Being from Temecula, all you hear is bad stuff about 'Mo Val', however our experience was anything but bad.

Upon arrival to the Moreno Valley Mall we found the entrance to the movie theater a bit hard to find, as it is inside the mall, however once we got there the staff was very nice. The mall itself is a bit dated, but it was clean and we felt safe. We parked our car in a very well lit parking lot between a Macys and Jc Penneys.

Taste of Siam Cuisine, Just Give It a Try

Nowadays when I walk into Taste of Siam, I am greeted by hellos and waves from whichever sister is
in the back cooking.  I am brought my water and jasmine teapot without having to ask.  And I do not need to look at the menu anymore, but I often do. There are over 70 items to choose from, so I have had dishes catch my eye every once in a while, so far, so good.

That, however, was not how it started.  I grew up in the Midwest.  We did not have Thai food.  I had to drive over an hour to get Chinese food buffet.  Needless to say, I was a little scared going in, but my husband said, “Just give it a try.”  So here I was in a Thai food place for the first time in my life, what do I order???

Being a vegetarian, the first time in a restaurant can be a little daunting.  So many questions to ask the server and wondering if they are just going to tell you what you want to hear.  Not at Taste of Siam.  The restaurant is family owned and operated; everyone knows what they are serving and how it prepared.  My server Tyler, the son of one of the sisters in the kitchen, was very helpful and informative about the food and whether or not it was vegetarian and gluten free friendly.  Most of their dishes have the option of being prepared with chicken, beef, pork, tofu or all vegetable (my favorite).

Temecula, CA – Tom Brady gave America another reason to love him, and this isn't a snide or homo or sports fans comment. It is the comment from another parent and someone else loyal to his friends.

'There’s big money in celebrity endorsements of brand-name products. So what’s an anti-endorsement worth?

Priceless, if you’re the parent (or grandparent) of an aspiring young athlete who prefers junk food over fresh veggies and green smoothies.

Imagine this dialogue taking place in grocery store aisles across America:

Kid: “Can we get the Frosted Flakes?”

Mom: “If you want to grow up to be a star athlete, Tom Brady says you shouldn’t eat Frosted Flakes or drink Coca-Cola.”

That may have seemed an impossibility until last week. After the jump, how Tom Brady is awesome off the field as well as on it.

Hello Football Fans,

You've probably already seen at least a video replay of the most bizarre finish to a football game this year, and arguably for the decade in a relatively big game on the college scene involving Top 25 teams. 

I've added a few stats to the description of that game.

In the NFL, there are still five undefeated teams.

Temecula, CA - The full trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has debuted online, following the 
promo’s premiere during
ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” game between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles. The trailer’s release coincides with the launch of ticket sales for the seventh installment in the beloved franchise, which will bow in theaters on Dec. 18. On Sunday, Lucasfilm unveiled the theatrical poster for “The Force Awakens” as part of the countdown to the trailer and ticket release.

Lucasfilm’s promotional strategy for the hotly anticipated film has been meticulous, beginning with a coordinated launch of the first teaser which debuted in 30 theaters and online in November, followed by a longer teaser trailer that premiered during Star Wars Celebration in April. Other footage, including TV spots, a behind-the-scenes making-of reel and a special Instagram scene have been parceled out over recent months, along with a massive toy launch, but the latest release is believed to be the final theatrical trailer, which is expected to be attached to the latest James Bond installment, “Spectre,” upon its Nov. 6 release. Even comedian Amy Schumer caught the force, or maybe it was felt the force.

Temecula, CA – Local water districts are screaming to save water in this drought and threatening fines among some penalties. Towns and cities have been cutting back in this statewide effort and even I reported a broken irrigation line that had ruptured in an effort to do my part. However, it seems that not everyone is doing their part, especially those who put profits before people. In a story first reported here from another citizen news source, this is the update about a lawsuit being brought to stop collusion again between government and a corporate entity, boldly illustrating the craven reason for a new bill to make money from medical marijuana patients; simply, GREED and corruption. Claire Bernish

The Story of Stuff Project, the California-based Courage Campaign Institute, and the Center for Biological Diversity filed a lawsuit this week against the U.S. Forest Service for allowing Nestle to continue to bottle millions of gallons of water from the San Bernardino National Forest with a permit that expired 27 years ago,” the released press brief states.

If you’ve been following the Anti-Media’s investigation (spurred by Ian James’ articles in The Desert Sun) into Nestle’s irresponsible tapping of Arrowhead Spring — and all the questionable circumstances surrounding that, including censorship by Reddit of our exposé articles — you have some idea how exciting the announcement of this lawsuit is. It continues:

Murrieta: pair with expired visas arrested in embezzlement scheme

Murrieta, California - In May 2015, the Murrieta Police Department became aware of a possible
embezzlement of funds case from Sybak Photovoltaics, which is a solar business in the city of Murrieta. The Chief Operating Officer of Sybak Photovoltaics was Arkadiusz Zbigniew Nowak. Nowak was hired by the parent company Sybak Solar International LLC (in Polch, Germany) in October 2011 to open an office in Murrieta, California and purchase land in the Southern California area for a solar field.

A solar field is a large parcel of land used to produce solar energy with the use of solar panels. The energy is then sold to a local energy company for profit. Nowak was entrusted to handle the company’s financial investments and operating expenses of approximately $1,000.000.00. In the 22 month period when Sybak Photovoltaics was in business, Nowak purchased a ten acre parcel in San Bernardino County; however he never went any further with the project.

Temecula, CA – There has been no word so far on the progress of the lawsuit against AB266, AB243, and SB643 by the AMMA but October 9th Governor Jerry Brown signed into law these 3 new bills to fully regulate and control medical marijuana. As the will of the people gets neglected again [no GMO labeling, no consequence against Roundup false claims, mandatory vaccinations, flacking approved, etc.] it would seem another cause starts a flame-out as the government moves on of its own accord.

As evidenced by the current state of affairs with police everywhere, 'we the people' have become we the pests and we the consumers. Is there any wonder I have been a bit absent in the column lately. I'm just not a 'charge of the Light Brigade' kind of guy. And yet... I wrote a book in which I advance the notion that cannabis and capitalism don't mix, and won't mix, based on a dream discerned from Daniel, chapter 2. It would seem that I now must have the faith of Daniel and stand pat, not fold.

Beyond the reasons expressed here prior for the government not understanding cannabis or being so opposed to cannabis, is this very recently discovered secret about cannabis. While cannabis is a plant in this matrix we call reality, cannabis isn't a drug. When you understand the full implications of a manufactured moon and that cannabis in the Bible is in a very central role [Memoirs], then you understand that cannabis is actually an ancient alien advanced technology, something Monsanto/the government figured out, which is how they could get over a 140 patents based on how the plant works along with the chemicals involved.

After the jump, the report from those in on the rape, the MPP.

Temecula, CA – They say 'politics is show business for ugly people' but the three men taking the panel stage were anything but ugly. Standing tall and looking proudly cordial were most of the authors of AB266, the state bill everyone who isn't dabbing is gabbing about. On the surface it appears to be a total unraveling of Prop 215 and SB 420, a structure, admittedly loose, put in place by the voters of California 20 years ago. It is the construct through which I obtained my doctor's recommendation to be able to legally ingest an herb found by definition in Gen 1:29-30. I was at this meeting because it was personal, unlike my last visit to a political forum.

Part of the reason I was at this meeting was also to bring back some logic or understanding for my reading audience, 99% who weren't there. Taxation without representation was the main motive and since the panel room was filled to standing room only, I wasn't the only person in the cannabis culture to be concerned about the future of access to cannabis. You could say that I was there to get a lay of the land since these were the 'official' movers and shakers in the beginning bloom of the bud biz. In the hundreds of well-heeled and hipsters, I knew only two faces. If cannabis were a train, I had traveled back to the club car from the engine. The government, in the caboose, had also come up to the club car. We all now shared a common ground.

When the Assemblymen were introduced, you could hear a pin drop as people from all walks inside the cannabis culture sought to see where they would be in the landscape, provided AB266 goes through. Like with Congressman Peters, I was there to see the motivation and background for the backers of AB266.

Temecula: Creepy guy attempts to talk to pre-teen girl near school zone

Temecula, Ca - On Tuesday September 29th, 2015, officers from the Temecula Police Department responded to a report of an unknown subject possibly annoying / harassing a female juvenile near Margarita Middle School on Margarita Road, in the city of Temecula. The incident was reported to have occurred on Monday September 28th, 2015, around 2:50 P.M., as the female juvenile (age 11) was walking away from the school.

As the girl was walking on Margarita Road, she reportedly walked past an older, gray, pickup truck, parked along the curb. The lone male occupant asked the girl a question, which she ignored. According the the Sheriffs press release, the driver may have exited the vehicle and approached the girl on foot or attempted to grab a hold of the girl causing her to run away from the subject.  

The victim described the suspect vehicle as:

Temecula Police and Starbucks to host 'Coffee with a Cop' on October 22

Temecula, Ca - On Thursday, October 22, 2015, from 8:00 am to 10:00 am, the Temecula Police Department will host Coffee with a Cop. The event will be held at Starbucks, located at 41195 Winchester Rd., Temecula. Officers from the Temecula Police Department and community members
will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. All members of the community are invited to attend.

There is no agenda or formal speeches, just casual conversations about your community, with those who serve. Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the police department's work in Temecula's neighborhoods.

The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street.
