ach month, I write a column that is upbeat, fun and for the most part, lighthearted. However, in light of recent events, I would like to dedicate my column to the people of Lincoln who call the city their home.

tanker caught on fire. Living in a relatively quiet city, experiences like these are rare, at best. However, the two days of watching the city come together as 10,000 residents were evacuated and a multitude of agencies worked to put out the fire

was a bonding experience that reminded me how Lincoln residents can work together. In times like these, political, socioeconomic and geographical boundaries are trivial. I witnessed individuals working together side by side to help those evacuated by the threat of danger. It was during that time I realized what this city really means and how, underneath all of the ugliness, people really do care.

Clinic provides non-surgical spinal rehab


BY PAUL APFEL
INSIDE LINCOLN CORRESPONDENT

dvanced Spinal Rehabilitation, Inc. on Lincolns Twelve Bridges Drive is one of the newest medical facilities in the city. It features innovative physical therapy designed to reduce or eliminate neck and back pain. According to owner Larry Geis, DC, the clinic is the first physical therapy and decompression clinic in Northern California to provide non-surgical spinal rehabilitation by com-

bining physical therapy, spinal decompression and cold laser therapy. Gies opened the Lincoln clinic eight months ago. Although Gies is a chiropractor, he emphasized that these clinics do not provide traditional chiropractic services. Rather, he emphasized, these are physical therapy clinics designed to relieve or reduce neck and back pain. Clinic physical therapists can also treat other joint and musculoskeletal problems, if need-

ed. Gies said that the use of a new medical device dubbed the

DRX 9000 Spinal Decompression System makes his clinic unique in the Lincoln area. With more than 20 years experience as a chiropractor treating back pain, Gies said, he became interested in the DRX 9000 system in 2003. He found this new system offered promise to provide pain relief without the harsh side effects of drugs and surgery. And his research suggested there was adequate support for this among orthopedic and family physicians and physical

therapists. A review of available literature shows the DRX 9000 spinal decompression system is mentioned as an option for treatment of herniated discs in the neck and lower back and, in some cases, spinal stenosis. According to Advanced Spinal Rehabilitation, Inc., most insurance companies pay for the majority of the treatments and they accept Medicare. For those without insurance plans, the company offers a variety of payment plans.

Plant your fall vegetables now Fall Veggie W Gardening


hen you hear the phrase gardening by the moon, you may think this is some crazy gardeners idea of a romantic evening but thats not the case. Farmers and gardeners have been planting, harvesting and maintaining their gardens and crops by the phases of the moon for centuries. Plants respond to the same gravitational pull as ocean tides and rising ground water. Seeds will absorb more water during a full moon and will then germinate faster. Fluid in plant cells will transport more water when the ground water rises, giving them a boost of growth during a full moon. Farmers will watch the lunar phases to determine which days are best for planting seeds and some days are better for very specific crops. I know many gardeners who do the same with their vegetable gardens. Have you ever had a year when nothing grew well or lacked the same vigor as years prior, even if you did everything exactly the same as you do every year? Consider that you may not have planted your plants during the proper lunar phase. Its something to think about! A Farmers Almanac will help you determine the days to plant your garden. A new Farmers Almanac is printed every year and you can find one at most book stores and garden centers. But, if gardening by
Jennifer Minor Garden Column

There are so many great veggies that must be grown in the cooler days of fall and early winter in our area ... broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, all leaf veggies, onions, garlic and my favorite, artichokes.
lunar phases sounds a bit strange, then just consider planting according to the calendar. Some seasons are better for growing certain vegetables. In the spring, for example, everyone anxiously awaits tomato, pepper and melon plants to arrive in their local nurseries so they can get their summer garden started. I cant tell you how often I am asked why lettuce, cilantro, broccoli and so forth did not do well in my customers summer garden. Easy answer wrong season. I really look forward to September so I can start my fall garden. There are so many great veggies that must be grown in the cooler days of fall and ear-

ly winter in our area. The list is large, but to keep it simple, broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, all leaf veggies, onions, garlic and my favorite, artichokes. Fall is truly the best time for these veggies since they respond well to cool nights and warm days. Most of them can even handle frosty nights. Onions and garlic can freeze at night, looking awful in the morning, and by the afternoon when it warms up, they look perfectly normal. I am not sure which I like better, growing fall veggies or eating them. Countless studies show our bodies need more of certain vitamins during different seasons. Vitamin D, C, E and beta carotene are some key vitamins our bodies need in the fall and winter more than other seasons because they help boost our immune system. Guess which vegetable has more vitamin C than most of your summer vegetables? Broccoli. Spinach has more vitamin D than almost all other veggies and cant we all use a little extra vitamin D during the gray days of winter? We would be a lot healthier if we were to eat all of our fruits and vegetables according to the phases of the moon or seasons. I mean, who really needs to eat melon in December anyway?

Salmon call back to return for two days this year


The second annual Calling Back the Salmon Celebration at McBean Park in Lincoln on Sept. 17 includes a full day of activities for all ages from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This year, the free festival will include two days.

steelhead and watershed stewards. Potential activities for these groups include tree planting, monitoring water quality, monitoring plant survival, educational outreach, fish counts and observing fish morphology and other aquatic life. WHF (Wildlife Heritage Foundation) is commit-

ted to participating in the effort to bring a healthy, thriving salmon population back to Auburn Ravine. Early 20th century newspaper accounts record Auburn residents taking 30-pound salmon from Auburn Ravine. The run continued until the 1980s when barriers west of Lincoln prevented salmon from reaching spawning gravels. During 2008 and 2009, those barriers were removed and salmon now have access to spawning gravels in Auburn Ravine again. SARSAS is working with WHF and other partners to improve habitat and increase juvenile survival rates by screening pumps and diversions. This summer, Nevada

Irrigation District is building fish ladders on two structures it operates on Auburn Ravine. These ladders will expand access for salmon to many more miles of prime spawning areas on Auburn Ravine. Musical performances at the Sept. 17 celebration include Loping Wolf, Lincoln Highway and Kally Pile. Of special interest to children will be face painting, making water cycle bracelets, watertesting science activity crafts projects, flute workshop and exotic wildlife rescue. There will also be food vendors, artists displaying their works, and informational and retail booths.

Reducing your personal debt is manageable


ith international, national and state government debt issues much in the news, Lincoln consumers should be taking a close look at their own debt environment to see where they stand. Equally important in that assessment are considerations regarding where they are today and where theyll be in the near future. Humorist Will Rogers is credited with noting that if you find yourself in a hole, the first thing you do is stop digging. So are you in a hole? And do you have any prospects about getting out of that dilemma? Lets look at some data that might help put all this in perspective. According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, total consumer debt as of the third quarter of 2010 was $11.6 trillion, with mortgage debt comprising 74 percent of that or $8.6 trillion. Credit cards, home equity lines of credit and car loans were each six percent of the total while student loans added five percent and the other category added the remaining three percent. CreditKarma.com, an Internet site that states it is a consumers credit advocate, released data last June that showed overall credit card and mortgage spending slowing from the previous year with the average credit

Paul Apfel Personal Finances

California was one of eight states where consumers decreased their mortgage by three percent more than the national average ... according to some national statistics, Californians are holding their own in this slowly emerging economy.
card debt per consumer falling 15 percent to $6,470 and average mortgage debt declining two percent to $172, 957. California was one of eight states where consumers decreased their mortgage by three percent more than the national average. Credit scores fell three points nationally from May 2010, according to the same report, with California consumers hold-

ing the highest credit score among states at 685. So, according to some national statistics, Californians are holding their own in this slowly emerging economy. But are we really healthy? And what consumer debt is appropriate and sustainable? Mortgage bankers typically look at ratios when considering a potential borrowers credit-worthiness. The so-called back-end ratio, which is a total debt-to-income ratio, consists of your total monthly long-term debt payments, including mortgage and credit cards, child support, alimony, car and college loans and should not exceed 36 percent of your gross monthly income. The housing expense ratio, sometimes called the front-end ratio, is calculated on the basis of your gross (pre-tax) income that would pay your monthly housing expense of principal, interest, taxes and insurance. This ratio should be no more than 28 percent. While real estate financing professionals may rely on the ratios to grant housing loans, consumers can also use them as a rule of thumb in determining their relative financial health. Most financial experts would agree that 36 percent or less is a healthy debt load for most individuals.

INSIDE LINCOLN September 2011

The savvy consumer will be cautious and mindful of his or her debt obligations. If you use a credit card, pay it off each month. Dont carry a balance. But, if you did slip a bit in the past and you are currently carrying a credit card balance, design a payment plan to eliminate that as quickly as possible.
At 37 to 42 percent, the ratio is not bad but consumers should take steps to pare down debt before getting into real trouble. Ratchet the ratio to the range of 43 to 49 percent and trouble looms unless you take immediate action. And debt levels above 50 percent call for aggressive measures to reduce debt. The U.S. is worldfamous for its effective marketing and sales efforts designed to convince the American consumer that this or that product or service is indispensable. And the proliferation of credit cards makes it too easy to accommodate our merchants. But the savvy consumer will be cautious and mindful of his or her debt obligations. If you use a credit card, pay it off each month. Dont carry a balance. But, if you did slip a bit in the past and you are currently carrying a credit card balance, design a payment plan to eliminate that as quickly as possible. And adjust your other spending accordingly.

ove over cupcakes cake pops are here.As far as single-serving treats are concerned, this sweet-on-astick has a lot going for it. Its like a lollipop without the chipped tooth, a popsicle without the brain freeze. Basically a cake pop is ground-up cake with icing to hold it together, said Cathy Bianchi of Gimmie Cake Too! in Auburn. Bianchi calls her single-serving desserts cruiser pops because you can cruise down the street and eat it. Bianchi said cake pops are a

great way to make use of cake remnants, as long as the cake has some weight to it nothing light and airy. Frosting acts as a binding agent, but be careful not to use too much or else the pops wont set. The production process can be pretty simple roll the base of cake and icing into lollipopsized balls, add a stick, dip the pop in melt-and-mold chocolate and other toppings, and enjoy. If you dont mind firing up the oven, you can also create the base by pouring batter into silicone molds. Bianchi advises putting the pops on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and placing everything in either the fridge or the freezer for a few minutes between steps so the

pops will remain firm and keep their shape. Kelly Forrest, owner of Rocklin-based Kellys Crafty Creations, has been making cake pops for a couple years. Theyre unique and cute, she said. Its a trend. Its like when cupcakes surpassed cakes. Forrest, like Bianchi, uses cake remnants to make her pops. Every time I make a cake theres tons of leftovers. Now I dont waste anything, she said. Forrest makes cake pops to order, and has created pops resembling everything from gumball machines to fish tanks. Theyre cute, convenient and small, she said. You dont feel like a pig for having this little treat on a stick.

Whatever happened to good old common sense?


F
irst of all, I want to congratulate the city of Lincoln on having a balanced budget. That is an example of what working together in spite of differences can be. My questions are for the state and federal government and to the banks. What the heck is going on? Where is the bail-out money and what happened to our economy? Why dont the elected officials and their staff understand the basic idea that, when you dont have the money, you cant spend it? Last Thursday at the Farmers Market, I asked my 7-year-old nephew what would happen if you had 20 cents and a soda was a quarter. He said, I wont have a soda today! Thats the right answer.
Gene Thorpe Real Estate

You have to pay to play. Come on guys, lets get it together for the sake of the country! The way many people on the street see it is that most of our elected officials are so polarized with their political partys agenda that very few are objectively working on viable solutions to the major spending issues that affect us all. And thats a major shame. Come on, folks, lets regroup and remember we are all Americans. Not only should many of you who are elected be ashamed of your spend-

ing and fighting and putting off the inevitable, you should be fired up about being part of the solution in these historic times. Now is the time to have courage and do what is right. Either you work and are part of the solution or you do nothing and are part of the problem. Please be quick and work together. Remember, the world is watching you. Whew, that felt good to get that off my chest. Now, I would like to direct some attention to our friends, the banks. At this time, a million-plus homes are in foreclosure and many are coming on to the market at a steady pace with many more in the wings waiting. I believe we will be seeing low prices and incredible interest rates for a while. Its cheaper to buy

than rent! I understand it is better for a bank, financially, to do a short sale as opposed to a foreclosure. We all know that the short sale process will be a part of the California real estate condition for a long time to come. Lenders requirements have made closing these transactions a difficult process. Here are a few ways banks could make the process better for buyers and sellers in short sales: Provide realistic time frames and then meet those time frames. Provide a comprehensive list of information needed upfront. Provide approval requirements upfront that, if satisfied, would assure the borrower of a short sale approval. Disclose whether a loan you service is owned

by you or if others own it. If others own it, provide time frames for approval. Be clear on who has final authority. Pre-approve the short sale and price upon request, prior to the property being listed. Review and respond with an approved offer to a borrowers short sale request within 30 days of receipt of the request. If rejected, be explicit on why and how it can be corrected. Do not restart files from square one if something is missing. Allow the correction and continue, without bumping it to the back of the line. Have a person available who can inform the borrower about the files status and shortcomings, and who can assist in problem-solving. Increase the speed of

processing files. Often, a single home goes through the process numerous times, resulting in months elapsing and buyers losing interest. The preapprovals and cumulative files discussed above will dramatically assist this effort. Increase the amount junior lienholders receive. This is a common reason why short sales fail. When the property is cleared for sale, be explicit that there will be no recourse on the notes as required by SB 458, which now is in effect.

artha and Tom Yanger have converted their Lincoln home from plain Jane to an impressive princess with impressive built-ins and upgrades to take advantage of location, location, location, three words often used by real estate professionals to describe the three most important factors in choosing a home. The Yangers purchased their Lincoln home in

2010. The home was originally built by Del Webb Corporation in the Sun City Lincoln Hills community and contained very few custom features but a spectacular view of the surrounding wetlands and distant Sierra foothills. When the house became available for sale in 2010, the Yangers, 30year residents of Sacramentos Pocket area; saw an opportunity and purchased it with the idea of

making several changes. Initially relying on handymen and small individual contractors, the Yangers acted as their own general contractor, coordinating the efforts of many in an effort to change their new home. That, according to Martha Yanger, was a mistake. It cost more money than expected and involved considerable personal time. The Yangers are unanimous in their conclusion that, if there is one lesson to be learned from their major remodeling efforts, it is to hire a professional contractor to plan, coordinate and complete the project. Based on a recommendation from one of their kitchen cabinet suppliers, the Yangers interviewed and subsequently hired

Carmichael-based Bradley Builders to plan and execute the remodel. Beginning this past January, Bradley Builders completed the major part of the remodeling by midJune. Some work continues, with delays attributable primarily to product availability. J. T. Bradley, the con-

tracting companys owner and president, noted, When I first met Martha, I saw she had a lot of individual projects to manage and I thought I could help as a single project manager to design and complete this job. The Yangers agreed, adding, We wanted this home to include features we have dreamed about for years and that we could live in comfortably as we get older. Moving to a rental, the Yangers gutted the existing structures as part of the rebuilding effort. Carpeting and linoleum were ripped out, all kitchen appliances and cabinets were removed, and interior walls were moved and rebuilt. In addition, a front porch was eliminated as

continued from page 17 the kitchen and entry halls were enlarged, and new windows were added to the homes great room to take advantage of the expansive views. Those added windows involved considerable effort as they were built into a load-bearing wall. The remodeled home contains several features designed to provide a comfortable lifestyle now and in the future when assistive devices, such as wheelchairs and walkers, might be required. Floors are now either wood or tile so mobility is not an issue. Martha Yanger chose an electric stovetop to replace the original gas appliance to eliminate any risks an open-flame appliance might pose. She now boasts that her new appliance is so efficient that she can boil water in 90
table, allowing for easy dining and, as the Yangers point out, convenient newspaper reading as we enjoy our morning coffee. Carrying the waist-high model forward, the Yangers installed a drawer-style dishwasher and a similarly designed microwave oven. Using these appliances eliminates the need for constant bending, a physical motion that can be problematic in later life. Martha Yangers East Coast roots played a role in designing a mud room entry from the garage. That existing entry was expanded and cabinets added for storage. Adding to the cozy environment is a new rock fireplace in the great room. To take advantage of the expansive views, a slider was added to the

Bathrooms received new shower enclosures plus grab bars and towel racks for additional user safety and stability. The rear patio was replaced as part of the current remodeling project. Next up is the landscaping in front of the house. Bradley lauded the Lincoln building department for its efficiency and willingness to work with him. The staff was always courteous and friendly, traits I occasionally find in short supply with some governments I work with, Bradley said. The Yangers have abandoned their rental home and moved back into the newly remodeled home, although the absence of furnishings gives the impression that this remains a work-in-progress. Martha Yanger pointed out that they gave their old furniture to a son and are now awaiting the delivery of new furniture to complete the project. When asked if this was the end of the project, both Yangers merely smiled.
