Gabriel Dillard – MANAGING EDITOR There’s even more evidence now that a hotly anticipated Cracker Barrel restaurant will indeed be opening in Fresno. Loca l media for the last several months now have been speculating that the countrythemed restaurant and gift shop would be opening in the Marketplace at El Paseo shopping center near Herndon Avenue and Highway 99 in nor t hwest Fresno. Ea rl ier

t h i s mont h A BC 30 m ade that announcement, but did not name the source of that information. The Fresno Bee has been checking up on the rumors for months, since the shopping center’s website, marketplaceatelpaseo.com, listed Panera Bread and Cracker Barrel as retailers that are “Coming Soon” to a new phase of the center, which currently has a Target anchor and several other stores.

A recent leasing report from Commercial Retail Associates lists a transaction for 9,170 square feet of space on the southwest corner of Herndon a nd R iverside avenues to Cracker Barrel. While confirmation hasn’t come from the developer or restaurant, this may be the most definitive proof of late that Cracker Barrel is indeed Fresno-bound.

A l it t le more t h a n t wo decades ago, California voters passed Proposition 215, the Compassionate Use Act, which a llows for the cultivation, sales and use of marijuana for medicinal use. And in about eight-and-ahalf months, the landscape of marijuana use will change again in the state as a result of voter passage of Proposition 64, legalizing the use and sale of marijuana for recreational purposes. Sta rting Ja n. 1, 2018, the State Board of Equalization will begin issuing licenses to allow for the legal sales and PERIODICAL:

DAVID CASTELLON | Brian Wiggins, senior advisor to George Runner, vice chairman of the State Board of Equalization, addresses a meeting of the Fresno Chamber of Commerce last week to discuss progress in the state’s preparations to license recreational cannabis businesses. EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a series of articles looking how the Central Valley’s business landscape will change once licensing for businesses cultivating and selling recreational marijuana start being issued next year as a result of California voters passing Proposition 64 in November 2016.

cultivation of recreational cannabis. At least that’s the plan, said Brian Wiggins, senior advisor to George Runner, vice chairman of the board, which besides issuing those licenses will collect excise taxes from those recreational cannabis businesses. “I know in one committee hearing, there was one particular senator who said, ‘I’m doubtful that the state agencies that are charged with certain aspects of the regulatory framework can get that all done and get licensing in place by Jan. 1, 2018,’” he recounted. “Ever ybody ’s r u n n i ng to t hat January finish line, and we all hope it’s in place. It’s a lot to do in a short period of time, and sometimes that’s difficult for a state bureaucracy to accomplish,” Wiggins said last week after giving the Fresno Chamber of Commerce an update on the state’s progress on fully implementing cannabis licensing. Portions of the new law already are in effect, including the right for people to grow cannabis — up to six plants per household — and the right of people 21 years or older to carry small amounts of the drug, up to an ounce in plant form and up to eight ounces in “concentrated form as an oil or ingredient in food or other products, including hand creams. “ B ut t h at i s s ubje c t to lo c a l

regulations,” as cities and counties can create regulations that could make growing or using cannabis easy or very difficult, said Michael Green, president of the Fresno Cannabis Association. For ex a m ple , C lov i s do e s n’t challenge the six plants per household rules, but the city restricts growing the plants to a 32-square-foot area in a building, which isn’t a lot of space, said Green. And he expects other cities and counties with leaders that don’t like the new recreational marijuana law to pass similar “shrink the box” rules to make growing the plants difficult. Prop 64, prohibits counties or cities from banning indoor cultivation, so some community leaders may ban growing outside homes, in yards or gardens, said Green. Similarly, the new law includes a series of local controls that allow cou nt ies a nd mu n icipa l it ies to impose their own licenses, fees and regulations that could make it easy to start a recreational cannabis business, or difficult, or could ban them entirely, Green noted. And among local communities — if their histories with medicinal marijuana are any indication — places welcom i ng recreat ion a l marijuana businesses may be hard to find.

Pot | from 2 rules for selling and growing medical cannabis have been so heavy handed and costly that few operators have been able to operate there. Similar actions and outright bans have been imposed in most of Fresno County, leaving Coalinga the only city there with a licensing program allowing for a medical marijuana dispensary. In addition, Hanford city leaders also are considering a proposal to a l low med ici n a l ca n n abi s dispensaries to operate just within the Kings Industrial Park, after cannabis businesses from the Bay A re a a nd S out her n Ca l i for n i a expressed interest in setting up operations there. A nd t he c it y of C oa l i n g a i s experiencing a boom in commercial real estate after voters there approved parameters for taxing commercial marijuana operations based on the size of the facility. Clearly, city officials were on board with this, as they sold the former Claremont Custody Canter to Ocean Grown Extracts, which converted the former prison into a cultivation and manufacturing plant for cannabisbased extracts. Prop. 64’s supporters touted that legal recreational cannabis sales could generate $1 billion in ta x revenues for California, but Wiggins said that may not happen for a few years. T h at ’s b e c au s e e ven t houg h medical marijuana operations are legal, state officials estimate that 40 percent or less of those businesses fail to register with the state and pay their taxes, he said. Part of that may be because many of those operators want to stay off the radar, as they aren’t operating in

full compliance with state and local regulations, but some operators also worry that the federal government may crack down on such businesses, despite federal agencies steering clear of them in the past. Wiggins said some are nervous that President Donald Trump and his new attorney general, Jeff Sessions, might end this policy initiated by t he Oba ma ad m i n ist ration a nd enforce the federal drug law that lists marijuana as a schedule 1 drug — which includes methamphetamine and heroin — despite California, 27 other states and the District of Columbia recognizing medical or recreational marijuana use or both as legal for adults. “In certain parts of Los Angeles County, there are supposed to only be 135 permits out there for dispensaries, but they have about 1,800 to 2,000 dispensaries — or probably some unknown number above that, even — operating. So they would prefer to stay under the radar,” Wiggins said. Still, there is a shift occurring in compliance as next year approaches, he sa id , not i ng t h at “ We h ave cultivators that are coming forth and getting sellers permits like we’ve never seen before.” “The reason for this is they’re beginning to look forward to Jan. 1 and they say, ‘I need to be in compl i a nce w it h a l l t he ot her licensing requirements,’” so they can be ready to start these new cannabis businesses. And anybody looking to start such business should start by contacting officials in the city or county where they want to operate to find our if it will be permitted and the local rules they’ll need to follow, Wiggins said.

A century of Fresno County agriculture

PHOTOS BY DAVID CASTELLON | The Fresno County Farm Bureau marked its 100th year with a centennial gala dinner May 5 at the Clovis Veterans Memorial District. More than 500 people paid $165 per ticket to attend or purchased tables for up to $2,500 to eat, sample wines and to hear the keynote speaker, NBA hall-of-famer Bill Walton. It was a far cry from five farmers working with a University of California extension advisor a century ago to form the organization to spread information to farmers about university research on plant health and farming, said Ryan Jacobsen, the Farm Bureau’s executive director and CEO. “It was very low key back then” and those founding members likely would be shocked at how much the organization has grown, he said.

The benefits of tax diversification in your retirement plan Taxes are an often-overlooked aspect of retirement planning. While many Americans are saving diligently and focused on accumulating the biggest “nest egg” possible, many investors may not be fully considering the impact that taxes will have on their monthly income in retirement. This is GUEST VIEW an important dynamic to understand and will prevent any unnecessary surprises when you Nicholas Allen CFP® enter your hard-earned retirement. Know your retirement plans IRAs, 401(k)s, or other workplace plans are great ways to save and invest for retirement. Your contributions are generally made with pre-tax dollars, and you don’t pay taxes until you withdraw money. If you have access to a workplace retirement plan or an IRA, take the time to evaluate how your savings may be taxed in retirement. It’s important to factor this into your retirement income planning. One way to potentially minimize the impact of taxes in retirement is to accumulate savings in an account that gives you access to tax-free withdrawals. To achieve this, many people choose a Roth IRA. Strategic planning and dedicated saving in a Roth IRA during your pre-retirement years may give you more options to manage your retirement income stream in a tax-efficient manner. In general, a Roth IRA may make sense for investors who anticipate being in a higher income tax bracket later in life (examples include marriage, progressing in your career or annual raises), or who prioritize having tax-free retirement assets. Direct contributions to Roth IRAs are only available to those who meet specified income limits (check with your financial advisor or tax professional for details). You invest after-tax dollars into a Roth IRA, but if certain requirements are met, all withdrawals can qualify for tax-free treatment. This is a unique advantage that few other vehicles offer. Your employer’s plan may also offer a Roth option, which is a way to save even more money that benefits from this distinctive tax treatment. You can also convert dollars from a traditional IRA or workplace plan into a Roth IRA. This allows you to put a larger sum into the tax-free category for retirement. A Roth conversion can also create a sizable tax liability in the year the conversion is made, so you need to determine if this strategy is suitable for you. If you want to use this strategy, you’ll need to have enough money available outside of the IRA to pay the taxes incurred. Always consult with your tax professional before moving forward with this strategy. Tax-smart retirement spending Generally, it’s a best practice to allow money with more favorable tax treatment to stay invested for as long as possible to extend those tax benefits. The advantage of owning a taxdiversified mix of assets once you reach retirement is that it helps you manage your tax burden on a year-to-year basis, per your personal circumstances. In any given year, your strategy may include: Withdrawals from a workplace retirement plan or IRA funded with pre-tax contributions that are fully taxable Distributions from a traditional IRA where a portion is taxable The sale of taxable investments where tax may or may not be due Withdrawals from a Roth IRA that are not subject to tax and don’t add to your taxable income Managing income levels effectively in a particular year can help limit the amount of taxes due in that year. Depending on your income level, a portion of Social Security benefits may be subject to federal income tax. Tax decisions should be one consideration in your retirement income strategy. Putting yourself in position to have options as you draw income requires planning in advance. Investing with tax diversification in mind may help you access income with different types of tax treatments in retirement. As you craft your strategy, be sure to discuss the potential tax treatment of your investments with your tax advisor.

FILE PHOTO | Fresno City Hall will be the site of one of the first meetings between the Fresno City Council and Fresno County Board of Supervisors in recent memory.

Joint Fresno meeting scheduled May 30 Recent history will be made May 30 at 1:30 p.m. at Fresno City Hall. That’s when the Fresno City Council and Fresno County Board of Supervisors will host the first of what officials say will be a series of joint meetings. It’s the first joint meeting in recent history for the two bodies, which historically have had tense relations. Mayor Lee Brand will chair the meeting which will include all city councilmembers and county supervisors, as well as City Manager Bruce Rudd and County Administrator Jean Rousseau. “The historic event is free and open to the public,” according to a news release. The first meeting will concentrate on public safety, marijuana legislation and animal control. There will also be a public comment section at the end of the meeting for residents to address the officials on any matter on the agenda. “We have a significant number of issues that affect both the City and the County, and I’m pleased that we are able to work with the County to develop a shared vision and shared solutions,” Brand said in a statement. “This is just the start of a new era of collaboration and communication between the City and the County, and the real winners are the citizens we serve.” As Brand revealed in a talk to community members at Fresno Rotary this week, communication between the two bodies has been ongoing. “We have already had two Ad Hoc Subcommitee meetings with the Mayor and members of the Council and have achieved significant progress on several fronts,” said Fresno County Board Chairman Brian Pacheco in a statement. “There is much more we can do and this joint meeting of the Board and the Council is a giant step in that direction.” Requests for disability-related modification or accommodation for translation services must be made to the City Clerk at (559) 621-7650 no later than May 26 at 9:00 a.m.

AGRICULTURE ‘Sting’ operation recovers bees (AP) — A Montana beekeeper has recovered hives that were stolen from him in California, thanks to an agricultural sting operation. Lloyd Cunniff of Choteau reported 488 hives stolen in January, after he had transported them to California for the almond pollination season. A tip led Fresno County authorities to find stolen hives worth $170,000 in a rented bee nursery space, a cow pasture and hidden in a drainage along a freeway. Fresno County Detective Anders Solis, member of the county’s agriculture crimes task force, says there were 10 victims in seven California counties in all. The Great Falls Tribune reports (http://gftrib.com/2pvUzhM ) Cunniff got most of his bees back last Sunday. He says he is keeping the recovered hives in a separate field in case they are infected with disease or mites.

SPORTS Hall of Fame gets first look

In its nearly 50-year history, the Fresno County Athletic Hall of Fame has inducted more than 330 athletes, but has never had an actual hall to house

their memorabilia for the public to see and learn their stories. But that may soon change, as the Hall of Fame’s current leaders invited local athletes — old and young — business leaders and potential donors to get a look at their plans for the future hall of fame site, the southwest wing of the Save Mart Center. “This is an opportunity to show you what this venue is going to look like in the near future,” Hall of Fame President Walt Byrd, Jr. told reporters last week, prior to an invitation event later that evening. Next to him was a television showing digital images of the planned design for the 1,900-square-foot area that will be converted into the Hall of Fame. Among the features will be display cases that can be changed periodically to focus on athletes based on themes — females, males, athletes of color, etc. — along with a “Bulldogs in the Hall” display for athletes who attended Fresno State, where the Save Mart Center is located. Byrd noted that about a third of the athlete inductees attended the university. One of the most prominent features will be the names of the inductees on small metal plaques. Byrd said last week’s announcement is intended to let the public know about the plan for how the venue will look and function, as well as to reignite the fundraising program to collect the $1.5 million needed to convert the section of the Save Mart Center and to run the Hall of Fame for at least the first couple of years. Those costs include an $11,000-a-year lease agreement with Fresno State. “We need the community to step up now,” both individuals and businesses, to help fund the project, said Byrd, who noted nearly $700,000 has been collected so far.

EDUCATION Ruiz pledges $1 million

Ruiz Foods has committed $1 million to expand the University Business Center at the Craig School of Business at Fresno State. The gift will establish the “Ruiz Foods Executive Classrooms,” a stateof-the-art learning environment for students throughout the Craig School. “This is a transformational gift for the future of business education at Fresno State,” President Joseph I. Castro said in a statement. “The Craig School educates business leaders and entrepreneurs for the Valley and beyond. The new educational space so generously made possible by Ruiz Foods will elevate the academic experience and open new possibilities for innovative teaching.” The Ruiz family has been a generous benefactor of the business program at Fresno State. Fred Ruiz is a founder of the Institute for Family Business, and last year pledged $125,000 to create an endowment for the organization. Kim Ruiz Beck, chair of Ruiz Food Products, Inc., is an alumna of the Craig School and serves on the board of governors for the California State University, Fresno Foundation. “We are committed to giving back to our community. And what better way to build a future than by investing in our young people and their education,” Ruiz Beck said in a statement. “Not only are many Ruiz family members graduates of Fresno State, but so are quite a few Ruiz Team Members in a wide variety of departments: research and development, IT, accounting, operations, etc.” The gift will finance construction to expand the University Business Center, which will house two educational spaces including a classroom with stadium seating equipped with the latest educational technology. “This expansion will transform the current space into a learning environment that suppor ts the latest technology while fostering engagement and collaboration. This space will have a significant impact on students in both the [Executive MBA] and accelerated bachelor’s program. Because of the accelerated nature, students spend up to eight hours at a time in their classrooms,” said Dr. Robert Harper, dean of the Craig School, in a statement. “We are deeply grateful to Ruiz Foods for their history of support and belief in the life-changing educational experience offered at the Craig School.” A groundbreaking is expected in early 2018. This is the second $1 million pledge announced by the university this week. Trucking industry leader Manuel Mancebo, Jr., 87, of Tulare also pledged $1 million to benefit the Fresno State dairy science program.

BLOG: ‘If they trust you, they’ll do business with you’ The radio is on and another car commercial comes through the dashboard speaker. The description is tempting and the idea of buying a new car GUEST VIEW flashes through my mind. Then Al Smith the disclaimer comes — spoken fast and almost decipherable — like overdosing on drugs or too many visits to Starbucks. It always concerns me when lawyer talk is sped up to such a degree that you can’t understand the words, rendering suspicion about all the positives you have just heard for the first 50 seconds of the commercial. Trust and truth has become a big factor today. We see it in government. We see it in business. Witness the disruption from Volkswagen and United Airlines. The same regarding Trump and the mainstream media. As to government, one had to smile when recalling former President Harry Truman saying this about political rival Richard Nixon: “He is one of the few men in the history of this country to run for high office talking out of both sides of his mouth at the same time — and lying out both sides.” While amusing, the concept is not helpful. Today, we witness media versus Trump, continually at odds about what is truthful and what is not. The new words in our vocabulary are “alternative facts,” first associated with Trump’s bestselling publication, “The Art of the Deal”. In the book Trump describes it as “truthful hyperbole…an innocent form of exaggerations and a very effective form of promotion.” Apparently, we are at a place in time where some lies are acceptable and some are not. How do we differentiate between innocent hyperbole and destructive deception? (Excuse me while I flash back to Johnny Carson’s 1950s television game show, “Who Do You Trust?”) If it is true, as one poll has revealed, that only one-third of

Americans say most people can be trusted, it illustrates just how fragile trust is. It reinforces the teachings that trust between customer and company is crucial. In business, we are admonished to tell the truth at all costs, even when it is not easy, or cheap, or popular, or convenient. Selling a product at the right price may cost you more in the short term, but dishonesty and deception and loss of trust can end up costing much more in the long run — professionally and personally. In a recent Fortune magazine publication, Arthur Gensler, architect and founder of a leading global design firm, mentioned that when he started his company, he knew a lot about architecture but very little about running a business. In 2015, he wrote his book, “Art’s Principles” — insights he wishes someone had given him when he was first starting out. Gensler states, “Trust in business enjoys two main benefits.” The first is with your clients. If they know you are honest and direct with them, they usually are willing to work through challenges with you, and they won’t hesitate to be a referral source when things go well. The second benefit is that authentic collaboration will take root within your firm. Your people can trust each other to act honorably and fulfill their roles according to shared company values. Gensler states that earned trust of his clients and his employees remains the core foundation of his organization. Super salesman and motivational speaker Zig Ziglar captured the principle in less than 20 words: “If people like you, they’ll listen to you, but if they trust you, they’ll do business with you.” Al Smith, former president and CEO of the Fresno Chamber of Commerce, serves as a leadership coach for local companies as part of the John C. Maxwell leadershiptraining program. For more information, contact Smith at [email protected]

PETER

SODHY DIRECTOR ImagineU CHILDREN'S MUSEUM Tell us about your business. We are an interactive children’s museum where children and their families interact with the exhibits and each other. They are expected to touch and play with everything here so they can have experiences they normally would not get in a home or school environment. How did the museum start? ImagineU was started in 2002 by Angela Huerta in a tiny 2,000-square-foot former car dealership office in downtown Visalia. Initially, it operated with borrowed, loaned, and donated toys and exhibits, along with three volunteer staffers who worked there part time. In 2008, the museum’s board of directors saw the need to expand and began seeking donations from the public and from businesses. They also received a California Parks and Recreation grant worth more than $5 million, which provided the bulk of funding for the $7.4 million project. The new 13,000-square-foot building opened in November 2015 about a block from the original museum site. In our first full year of operation at this new museum, we welcomed almost 70,000 people, nearly 65 percent of them from the Visalia area. There is a huge list of people who contributed time and expertise and support who all came together to enable this treasure. This is really the work of a whole community. What brought you to the Central Valley? My wife and I for many years lived in Southern California, but built a vacation home in Three Rivers. One morning she announced that she’s moving here. It took me a year of weekend commuting before I found a job working for the Visalia Unified School District’s Pro-Youth/HEART, which was also my introduction to working in a nonprofit environment. How did you first get involved with Imagine U, and how did you reach your current position? There is a Square Dance club in Three Rivers that my wife and I helped to start. Angela Huerta attended one of the dances and during a break offhandedly mentioned that ImagineU was searching for a new director. It was perfect timing, as I was looking for a career change, so I applied for the job. How does the new museum differ from the old one? The old museum occupied the old Giant Chevrolet building, which had been leased to the museum free of charge. At 2,000 square feet, plus a small asphalt outdoor space, it barely accommodated 60 children at a time, and it was cold in winter and hot in the summer. Most of the exhibits were donated or hand-me-downs. This new facility is almost seven times larger, not including the outdoor space. It’s also energy efficient, while cool in summer and warm in winter. The exhibits are mostly purpose-built with experiential education and teamwork at their cores. The space allows us to comfortably host 220 people inside and many more outside. How does running a children’s museum differ from running other sorts of businesses? About 75 percent of our operational revenues come from general admission, memberships, youth camps, and other fee-based activities. The rest comes from grants, fundraising, and contract programming, which is typical for most nonprofit children’s museums. The differences between this and other businesses has a lot to do with the clientele — ostensibly children, but in reality, the families, and the fact that everything is meant to be touched and played with. As such, there is a lot of cleaning, sanitizing and repair work involved in running this place. We spend a lot on craft materials, cleaning supplies, sanitizing supplies and the like, plus a lot in labor to clean and maintain the museum after hours. What are some of the most popular displays at ImagineU? It depends on the age group, but we always see crowds at the Imaginarium , where children can paint on glass; the Pick and Pack, a citrus packing simulation; the U-FixIt Garage, a simulated auto shop; and, and of course, the outdoor water exhibit. What is the best business advice you ever received? Never respond to an idea by starting with the word “no.” One of my high school

What we do: I wear many hats, including executive director, operations manager, program director, education director and facilities manager. I also do occasional maintenance, janitorial work and — if I’m lucky — I get to spend time interacting with the children. Age: 58 Family: Married 23 years to Leah Catherin Launey, father of Shannon Snaith, 38 and Simone Snaith, 36 teachers told me this when I was too young to appreciate the advice. That took me about 20 years, not just to appreciate it, but to be able to do it effectively. What are you finding to be the most effective ways to promote Imagine U? We want to be a good citizen of the community, and that means embracing the entire community at all economic levels, ethnicities and ability levels. That makes targeted promotions difficult. So far, the most effective ways we have found to bring in repeat customers and special-event customers are social media and word of mouth. Happy customers make great promoters, so we try hard to make each experience special, and we provide flyers listing activities here over the next two weeks, put out member alerts and make social media posts. We also give children on field trips information to take home. We’re still refining this system to try to reach a wider audience. What qualities do you look for in staff and volunteers. This is a harder job than most realize. I look for a level of maturity combined with the seemingly contradictory skill to equally communicate with children and with adults. This same staff has to ensure child safety while making the experience fun, yet be able to manage groups of children and their parents. I look for a willingness to try new things, an ability to smile through conflict, and an understanding of learning as an outcome of interaction and experimentation. Of course, I also look for a willingness to clean up all the time What lessons have you learned working with children that makes you better at your job? The most important lesson is the cost or complexity of something has nothing to do with how much children enjoy it or — more importantly — what they learn from it. This colors everything we do from shopping for consumable materials, to exhibit designs, especially our interactive activities and programming. Make it interesting and fun, and the child will learn something from it.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Trustor: Nora B.

Street Address or other common designation of real property: 3248 West Browning Avenue, Fresno, CA 93711 A.P.N.: 415-421-23 The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown above. The sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by the Deed of Trust with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, under the terms of said Deed of Trust, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is: $ 231,504.34.

Note: Because the Beneficiary reserves the right to bid less than the total debt owed, it is possible that at the time of the sale the opening bid may be less than the total debt. 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. The beneficiary of the Deed of Trust has executed and delivered to the undersigned a written request to commence foreclosure, and the undersigned caused a Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located. NOTICE OF TRUSTEE’S SALE 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 this 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 (866)-960-8299 or visit this Internet Web site http://www.altisource.com/ MortgageServices/DefaultManagement/ TrusteeServices.aspx using the file number assigned to this case 2016-02653-CA. 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.

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 800-280-2832 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site www. auction.com for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case 00000006532238. 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.

EDITORIAL

Government-run health care would break Golden State employers Sacramento, we’ve heard this song before. While Congress is working toward an alternative to the troubled Obamacare system, legislators in Sacramento are pushing pie in the sky in the form of government-run health care. SB 562 recently passed out of the Senate Health Committee on a 5-2 vote, and is headed for a date with the Senate Committee on Appropriations. While there are a lot of nonsense bills circulating in Sacramento right now, once something makes it through committee, it warrants a long, hard look by groups

such as the California Chamber of Commerce, which has labeled SB 562 a job killer. And here’s why: even though the concept of government-run health care may be a silver-bullet solution to all the problems in our health care system to some people, it’s certainly not government funded. Even though the financing mechanism for SB 562 has yet to be specified, past attempts at government-run health care have proposed major hikes in payroll and income taxes on businesses and individuals. This measure would further burden California businesses still reel-

ing from the $52 billion hike in gas taxes over 10 years by way of Gov. Jerry Brown’s roads plan. CalChamber predicts the gas tax coupled with government-run health care would cost employers and taxpayers billions of dollars and result in significant job losses. A 2008 California Legislative Analyst’s Office report estimated that sustaining a single-payer system in the Golden State would require more than $210 billion in the first year, inching up to $250 billion in subsequent years. Even with a 12 percent tax on employers and employees under the

2008 measure, the report predicted a net shortfall of $42 billion in the system’s first full year alone. In fact, the LAO estimated a 16 percent tax on employers and employees would be needed to cover the shortfall. The voters know this. That’s why twice California voters rejected a government-run health care system — in 1994 and 2004. As much as government wants to promise everything to everyone, a single-payer system in California would break the backs of businesses and taxpayers. Be sure to let your state Senator of Assemblymember in on that fact.

How should small biz owners use their lunch breaks? If you’re like the majority of American workers, you may not be in the habit of taking a regularly scheduled lunch break. It may be difficult to step away from the mountain of to-do items, but doing so can refresh your mind and boost productivity. We talked with six business owners and executives about their lunch break habits. Although they may spend that time differently, all of them agree that it’s a perfect chance to shake things up during the workday.

engage in the second half of the day with a refreshed mind.

Broaden your mind If you’ve ever complained about not having enough time to start learning that new language, Jordan Barker, chief digital officer and partner of advertising agency Relic says he uses his lunchtime to learn something new. “Learning something new both motivates me and allows me to relax by disconnecting from the hustle of the day,” he says. “The topics I study don’t always correlate to a business need, but rather a topic that I personally want to learn about. Gaining knowledge for my personal enjoyment not only helps me as a person, but also indirectly benefits my business and my work performance.”

Family time James Pollard, a sales and marketing consultant for financial advisors, says he discovered that those who spend the time with their families noticed the biggest difference in happiness and productivity.

The 3 E’s Kristen Edens, owner of a content writing service for businesses, leaves the office from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. for exercise, errands, and eating. “When I return, I’ve accomplished my tasks, refreshed, cleared the mind a bit, and I’m ready to go for three more hours,” she says. Shifting gears To keep his day from getting too monotonous, Jeremy Schaedler, president of Schaedler Insurance Agency, contrasts his lunch hour with his morning schedule. For example, if the first part of the day involved running errands or long meetings, he might take a power nap. Or if the morning consisted of sitting at a desk, he’ll take a walk in the park or grab lunch with a friend. His goal is to unwind in order to

Making melodies Gene Caballero, cofounder of GreenPal, a company that connects customers to lawn care services, plays piano during lunch. Playing an instrument engages almost every area of the brain, he says. Playing tunes is a mental workout that gets the creative juices f lowing again to push through the afternoon.

“It may not be reading a leadership book or politicking around the office, but building a stronger home life is one of the best business tasks you can do,” he says. “It impacts everything else.” Cultivate lunch culture No matter how lunch hour is spent, encouraging an atmosphere of work-life balance in the office is key for small business owners. Dan Green, CEO of Growella, a startup company providing money, career, and lifestyle guidance, says he uses his lunch hour to run and set a good example. “I want balanced employees who aren’t afraid to come in late or leave early for important things, such as school plays, sporting events, and dinner with their families,” he says. “I use my lunch hour to run because I want my team to know that I take time for myself away from the office, and that they’re encouraged to do the same.” Founded in 1943, and headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, the National Federation of Independent Business is America’s leading small-business advocacy association.

Should a Hustler Hollywood store open at Shaw and Highway 41 in Fresno? The City of Fresno recently settled a lawsuit with Hustler Hollywood over some roadblocks the city’s development department put in front of the retailer to open a gift shop at the old Silver Dollar Hofbrau location in Fresno. Nearly half of voters (49 percent) of this week’s web poll believe the sex-themed shop should not open there, while 45 percent have no problem with it and 6 percent are unsure.

Five hundred ninety-seven votes were cast.
