Support Your LAC While Having Fun

T his month’s magazine highlights our signature event, the race to Monte Carlo. If you are not  aware, this event solely funds the Greater Corona   Valley Chamber’s Legislative Action Committee.

 With prior feedback from our membership,  YOU – as one of our members – have found this committee to be a vital part of your membership. So your support of our race to Monte Carlo is

necessary for this committee to thrive and represent your voice in government issues with the Greater Corona Valley. Even though I represent you as our Chairman this year, I have been committed to serve on the Legislative Action Committee since its inception. For several years now, a group of our members meet monthly to review government issues on  your behalf to help create a positive and growth worthy business atmosphere. I would encourage  you to attend one of our meetings on the first  Friday of the month at the Chamber. We have helped several businesses within our region keep their doors open and to protect jobs from leaving the Greater Corona Valley area. This Legislative Action Committee allows you the opportunity to get close to our local legislators.  Assemblyman Jeff Miller and Senator Bill Emmerson both have staff present at our monthly meetings, giving us the most up-to-date information from Sacramento. Both of these gentlemen are major advocates for the Chamber and are for businesses that particularly focus around the Greater Corona Valley region. We, as a Chamber, are fortunate that we have government officials like them in our corner fighting for what is right for our local economy. Over the past several years, the Race to Monte Carlo has evolved to be one of the premier events  within the Greater Corona Valley Valley.. Each year the committee takes this fun filled evening to greater heights. The evening is filled with delicious cuisines from our many restaurants, music, dancing, casino-style gaming and silent and live auctions. Please don’t forget to put this year’s event on your calendar for Friday, July 22, 2011 at Eagle Glen Golf Club. I would like to personally thank the following people for their commitment to this year’s event. It wouldn’t be possible without the countless hours Mark Neely and his event team put in to make this a memorable evening to come. Also to Therese Marquez for her time in coordinating the many wonderful auction items that will be available to bid on and to Eugene Montanez for his time and dedication to bring in our many  sponsors that will be underwriting the event this year. Remember the Legislative Action Committee is here for your you and your business. So come out to support Chamber and Legislative Action Committee at this year’s Race to Monte Carlo.

Chamber to Hit the Street ore competencies are crucial in developing “Our staff is excited to participate in this venture, C and expanding our service to our membership. as they want to meet many of the voices who call Representing the Interest of Business with Government as well as Sustaining a Strong Local Economy are two areas that we continue to enhance. In an effort to better serve our business community, the Greater Corona Valley  Chamber of Commerce will begin doing Business  Walks – visiting businesses throughout throug hout the communities we serve. Friday, June 3 is slated for our first “walk.” On a monthly basis (the first  Friday) volunteers will gather at the Chamber’s offices and partner up with a “buddy” for a two hour session. Developed by the Metro Chamber in Sacramento, “our chamber is seeking to bring a listening ear from our business communities” states Chairman of the Board, Chris Miller. “I invite and encourage anyone who would like to help, come meet us at the Chamber at either 9:30AM or 1:30PM.” There will be two sessions – a morning and an afternoon. Each session will be given a section of businesses to visit. Our goal is simple:  we want to visit each business, let them know  we are here to help them (with legislative matters and local issues). We will ask a few questions, and if warranted, respond back to them in a timely manner.

in over the phone or email the Chamber. Each of  them is looking forward to heading up a team.”  We anticipate the outcome of these walks will w ill open more communications between the municipalities we serve and the business community. If you are interested in assisting, contact us at the Chamber at 951-737-3350.  Another competency deals with networking and business referrals. The two areas that shine in this arena are: CN$ (Chamber Networking $olutions) and GMCV (Good Morning Corona   Valley) networking meetings. Each Thursday at  11:30 a.m., a group of networkers arrive at a  preselected Chamber memberrestaurant to exchange leads, referrals and network. Earlier this year, I attended one at Miguel’s Restaurant  and most recently one at Kabob Hutt. Comparing leads generated by this group from last year to this year: $52,000 in leads (2010) and $106,000+ (2011). Also, the last Thursday of  each month we meet at Eagle Glen Golf Club for our Good Morning Corona Valley networking breakfast. If you are in sales and want to move  your product, these are a re two examples of events  you may want to attend.

 As business increases in our region, we are prepared to hear, “I’m too busy to attend a meeting (event or social etc).” We love hearing this, as it solidifies our purpose as a Chamber.  Attendance at meetings, events, socials etc. is not a requirement for membership – in fact my  personal goal would be to have every member so focused on what they do best (manufacturing their product; selling their product; providing their unique service or product, etc.) that their schedule is too consumed by appointments and business development. Then members realize the importance of supporting the Chamber by being a member, to enable our organization to Represent the Interest  of Business with Government. While you are busy   with your bottom line, we are working with the  various elected officials and governmental agencies to ensure business friendly legislation and oppose job killer bills. Dedicated to improving the working limitations in CA, our Chamber is constantly on the forefront of  issues and working with elected officials. The first two days of June, a delegation from Corona will be in Sacramento on behalf of the business community commun ity..  As we enter into summer, there are many  opportunities for business to grow – and if you are interested in having fun, let me suggest you consider being involved with our Race to Monte Carlo on July 22. This fun filled adul adultt evening  will begin with a VIP reception at 5:30pm; gaming (black jack, roulette and craps);  various exquisite food stations; live and silent  auctions and dancing with entertainment galore. Log on to www  www.MyChamber .MyChamber.org  .org to secure  your tickets. Proceeds from this Signature Event provide the funding for many member benefits and business enhancements through our Legislative Action outreach.

LEG ISLATIVE LEGISLA TIVE UPDA UPDATE TE     r     e       f       f     e     a      h     c     s     a     :       O      T       O      H      P

Chamber Working Hard To Pass Workplace Flexibility he Greater Corona Valley Chamber of  T Commerce is leading an effort to support SB 378 (Dutton) which would allow employers (optional for those with 5 or fewer employees) to establish an alternative workweek schedule that allows an employee to work up to 10 hours a day, 40 hours a week. “Last year, we served an important role as one of  the lead chambers of commerce in California to help seal the deal on workplace flexibility for employees and employers,” stated Cynthia  Schneider, Chair of the Greater Corona Valley  Chamber’s Legislative Action Committee. “Although we lost the fight to pass this reform in 2010, we are pleased that Senator Bob Dutton has reintroduced the proposal in 2011 and we  will fight even harder to pass it this time as the basic tenet of the bill ‘flexibility’ is critical to small business,” continued Schneider.

Currently, employees must approve by a secret  ballot election with at least 2/3 of the affected employees in a readily identifiable work unit required for adoption of an alternative  workweek schedule. Existing law also requires the employer to pay  overtime compensation to employees who work  more than their regularly scheduled hours under the alternative workweek and to make reasonable accommodations to find a work  schedule that does not exceed 8 hours per day  for employees who were eligible to vote in the election but are unable to work the alternative  workweek hours.

“As the law stands today, individual employees do not have the right to seek and arrange individual flexible schedules with their employers,” stated Chris Miller, Chairman of the Greater Corona Valley Chamber board of directors. “SB 378 will provide individual workers much needed flexibility to permit four-day workweeks for workers desiring to find a balance between  work and personal lives. Passing SB 378 is one of the top priorities of the Chamber in 2011,” continued Miller M iller.. Log on to www  www.CoronaAdvocacy.biz .CoronaAdvocacy.biz for more information.

The increased diversity and complexity within our workforce – combined with intensifying global competition in a 24/7 marketplace – have raised unprecedented organizational and societal challenges that impact both employers and employees. The reality of today’s economy is that a majority  of workers are struggling to succeed in the  workplace while also fulfilling serious personal responsibilities – be it caring for a sick child or parent, obtaining advanced training in order to move up, attending religious services, or even seeing a doctor to address a health crisis. SB 378 would permit employers and their employees to voluntarily enter into a revocable  written agreement setting forth an alternative  workweek schedule that allows an employee to  work up to 10 hours a day, 40 hours a week,  without the payment of overtime wages, with the requirement to pay a prescribed rate of overtime pay for excess hours and days.

Chamber Opposes Proposal  Allowing Local Tax Tax Increases he Greater Corona Valley Chamber of  T Commerce opposes SB 653, a statewide proposal  which would dramatically expand the taxing powers of local governments and open the floodgates to new taxes and higher taxes throughout the state. SB 653 lifts the decades of old restrictions that  prohibited counties and local school districts from proposing local personal income taxes, local corporate taxes, local non-uniform sales and use taxes and more. Further, while SB 653 lists specific taxes that may now be proposed, it also says that the new taxing authority is “not  limited to” the taxes specifically mentioned.

 will potentially lead to chaos as taxpayers and businesses try to figure out the policies of each county,” continued Schneider. In addition, by exploiting a loophole, tax proponents are attempting to enact these new and higher taxes with a simple majority vote rather than the two-thirds vote currently required for special taxes. Counties are placing a general tax on the ballot for majority vote approval  while promising in a companion measure on the same ballot that the money would be used for certain things.

“The Legislature needs to focus on polices that   will create jobs, not create more taxes,” stated Cynthia Schneider, Chair of the Greater Corona   Valley Chamber’s Legislative Action Committee.

SB 653 would also open the floodgates for a host  of different taxes and different rates depending on the locality. Trying to cope with higher and different types of taxes at every local jurisdiction  would only serve to further drive business and economic activity out of California. We need to

Hidden Valley Plaza

Since Ross Mollard became president and CEO of Hidden Valley Plaza five years ago, he has put a heavy ffocus ocus on servicing the residential community in ways that add to the quality of life. “The Corona/Norco area has a strong community spirit and we are proud proud to be part of that spirit,” said Ross. “We plan our mix of retailers around our anchors, Kohl’s and Stater Bros, and choose smaller retailers who complement rather than compete with existing shops.” Ross also thinks it’ it’ss beneficial to have other shopping areas in close proximity because “together we provide a wide variety of goods and services that meet the everyday needs of most families, from basicss to boutiques. In South Corona, for instan basic instance, ce, Kohl Kohl’s ’s and TTarget arget are in the same shopping center and they complement and play off each other.”  At Hidden Valley Plaza, Ross is pleased to have an excellent mix of restaurants—each of which has its own appeal to different tastes and budgets—su budg ets—such ch as Shogun Kitchen Kitchen,, Subway Subway,, Hot Dog Shoppe, Chick-f Chick-fil-A, il-A, and Fro-Yo Fro-Yo Land. In addition to Kohl’ Kohl’ss and Stater Bros, tenants at the Plaza incl include ude Bank of America, Quiksi Quiksilver lver,, hair salons, salons, restau restaurants rants and professional offices. It’s this thoug thoughtful htful mix that has made Hidden VValley alley Plaza attractive to shoppers. What Ross would like in the future future is “more family-oriented evening restaurants.” He also would have have no problem putting a pet shop next to Stater Bros, or a massage/spa to complement the hair salons. A kids’ or babies’ specialty shop would be a good addition, since Quiksilver already offers highly popular snow, surf and skate lines for teens and adults. “Whatever adds convenience to people’ people’ss lives and works well with our current tenant roster would be welcome at the Plaza,” he concluded. Ross, a former real estate attor attorney ney,, has many years expe experience rience as an investor and real estate developer in both Orange and Riverside Counties. He observed that “Corona and Norco have done well compared to the rest of Riverside County because they built out significantly in advance of the housing failure. The city has great schools, excellent sports programs, and first class police and fire departments.” The point is well taken, since statistics show that the average income within a mile of these shopping shopp ing areas averages approxi approximately mately $80,00 $80,000. 0. In addition addition,, there are Photos furnished by Hidden Valley Plaza

over 260,000 people in a 5-mile radius and Corona has the highest income demographics in Riverside County.

 S    h      o      p   !    

The community spirit is very much in evidence at the shopping center, where retailers are often shining examples of community commitment, involved in charitable works and fund fundraisers. raisers. In May, May, Riverside County paramedics and emergency medical technicians supported The Hot Dog Shoppe to help raise money for Santa Cruz paramedic Bryan Stow, the 43-year-old father of two who was severely injured after a Dodgers game. Hidden Valley Plaza is located at 490-570 Hidden Valley Pkwy., Coron Corona, a, next to the I-15, and it’s estimated that over 300,000 cars per day see the Plaza from the I-15.

 An exciting new restaurant opened up (in the site once occupied by Blackwood American Grill) Grill) and folks, you are going to absolutely love this place. Luna Modern Mexican Kitchen is a lovely restaurant that has largely kept the beautiful beautiful décor intact, just adding some gorgeous bright colored paintings that give Luna a classy yet upscale

in it. The roasted free range chicken bbreast reast was smothered in this wonderful sauce and topped with bits of candied dried apricots along with a crispy yucca hitlacoche hitlacoche cake, and fried plantain arroz blanco blanco rice. Both dishes were a steal at $1 $12.95 2.95 and the presentation of the dishes were absolutely beautiful.

casual ambiance.  As nice as the interior is, the menu will excite all your culinary senses and you will finally get to taste exciting regional Mexican dishes artfully plated with flair and lots of incredible layers of flavors.

 As great as the food was so far, the best was yet to come. Executive Chef Reuben Galvez is a very creative and talented chef with lots of great kitchen experiences, as shown in next three dishes. Let’s see, first there was the Salmon Salmon Zarandeado ($14.95), a grilled salmon filet that was first marinated in a tamarind and chili soy sauce, seared until the exterior was cris crispp while the meat was moist and flakey and then topped with a sweet tangy fresh pineapple-mango salsa along with assorted fresh vegetables and and white rice. Next came the breathtaking breathtaking Steak Adobado ($17.85), shown above, featuring grilled grilled slices of tender flat iron steak that were first rubbed with New Mexico red chile seasonings before before being grilled, served with luscious chorizo hash potatoes with crunchy crunchy celery root and Indian corn, finished with a tremendous poblano ancho chile cinnamon emulsion emulsion sauce. These two dishes were both gastronomically and visually dazzling!

There are many delightful appetizers to choose choose from, but you can’t go wrong with Chef’s Reuben’s Sampler Platter ($13.95) consisting of two delicious and tender baby back pork ribs basted with a sweet sticky BBQ sauce, four small cut up chicken-stuffed fried corn ttaquitos, aquitos, a grilled quesadilla with Mexican Cheese and salsa, salsa, two excellent large triangle-shaped deep fried empanadas with short rib and chorizo, Oaxaca cheese and dried fruit, fresh guacamole and rich zesty roasted roasted tomato sauce. All of the items were very tasty and a great start to what started out to be a most memorable dinner.  As for the entrees, wow! The choices are many. For my first flight of dishes, I thought I would try try two of my favorites; the Carnitas de Lechon Pibil, a dish popu popular lar in the Yucatan region of Mexico, and the Pollo en Mole Poblano, Poblano, a glorious dish origin originated ated in the city of Puebla. The Carnitas were cooked and steamed in banana leaves in a marvelous sauce with overtones of cinnamon and ancho chilies. Fried plant plantain ain ric rice, e, frijol frijoles es de la olla, olla, pico ddee gallo, gallo, guaca guacamole, mole, and a delicious zesty smoked chile de arbol salsa with warm tortillas complimented the carnitas very well.  A good mole should be rich and have layers of complex flavors. This rendition of mole was not not only stunning, I wanted to bathe myself

But getting out is not so easy, especially when there is a mountain of debt the business has accumulated over time.  A more positive aspect of o f business succession is when an owner simply wants to pass on the business to her children and grandchildren. Deciding on the best   way to exit a business b usiness can have important and long-lasting ramifications for the soon-to-be ex-business owner o wner.. Here are a few options to consider when you reach quitting time:

Scenario Number 1: Business owner has too much debt and wants  to dissolve his business (and his debt). debt). Dissolving a business in California  is relatively easy, but dissolving debt is not. For example, if your business is formed as a corporation, limited liability company, limited partnership, or any  other type of entity, you can dissolve that entity with the Secretary of State’s office with a few simple forms. But there’s a catch, and it’s a BIG catch: once a  corporation is dissolved, the debts and liabilities of the corporation must pass to someone else. The dissolution forms require you to name a person who will personally take on the debt and liabilities of the corporation after it is dissolved. This is a huge problem because you likely formed the corporation in the first  place to limit yourself from the debts and liabilities of the corporation. So why  take those debts and liabilities on personally now?  All too often I have clients come into my office and tell me that they dissolved their business and so the debt is no longer a concern. Not so. In fact, if a business is dissolved without resolving the debt issues, then you just made matters worse because debts that may have been limited just to the entity before are now on your own personal balance sheet after dissolution. The correct approach is to resolve debt issues before dissolving the business entity. Resolution could take many forms – from negotiating the debt to a smaller amount so it can be paid, to filing for bankruptcy protection for the entity so the debt is discharged either in whole or in part prior to dissolution. Either way, the debt must  be dealt with first. Never dissolve a business entity  that has debts and liabilities.  What about debts that t hat the business owner guaranteed personally? Thatpoint may is require bankruptcy to resolve. The to looka personal at your options before dissolving anything.

Scenario Number 2: Business owner wants to  transfer business business to family member to avoid  creditors. Let’s be clear right up front: this never  works. Transferring the ownership and management  of a business entity to a family member in order to avoid a creditor is fraud, plain and simple (called Fraudulent Transfers under the law). And courts generally disfavor this type of tactic because it just  causes a huge mess. Plus, transferring a business means giving up control, so the business owner is no longer calling the shots from a legal view. This means that once the business ownership and management is transferred to someone else, you are powerless from stopping them from taking actions you may not like. It is far better to simply deal with creditors head on. It may seem painful, but it’s the only way to resolve the problem. And the worst that can happen is a  bankruptcy filing. Bankruptcy is there for a reason, to help people who need help with creditors.

Scenario Number 3: Business owner wants to sell a business. There are many ways in which to sell a business to a new owner. A sale is a great way to pass a business on to the next generation without having to worry about gift tax  implications (because it’s not a gift, it’s a sale). My advice to every business buyer: pay as little up front and push as much of the purchase price into monthly payments as possible. My advice to every business seller: receive as much of the purchase price as possible up front and don’t allow any payments on the purchase price, if possible (unless you want to spread payments over time for tax purposes). Simply put, sellers want their money (all their money) up front when selling, and buyers want to pay as little as possible up front. And there are safeguards that can be built into sales contracts to ensure the business either continues as it has in the past or the purchase price must be adjusted to account for the change. The one thing to remember in selling a business is to have all the terms agreed to clearly articulated in a written sales contract. If there is a down payment with the remaining purchase price being paid over time, then determine how those payments willmade. be made, when theytowill besome made,mechanism and what will when they are not You will want have builthappen in so that if payments are not made, the business can be obtained without going to Court. The best way to secure payment is with security. Security is a legal term that generally refers to being able to take something of value from the buyer without  having to go to court first.

Scenario Number 4: Business owner wants to gift business to a family   member. Gifting a business to a child or grandchild can be a bit tricky, but not   member. impossible. Many people gift an interest in their business to children when they  add them to the ownership percentage. If I add my son to my corporation as a 10% shareholder, I have just made a gift to him of 10% of my company value. Unless my son actually pays me for that interest, the transfer of 10% to him is a gift.

Paradise for Golfers  When making a gift of a business interest, you are required to have that interest appraised for gift tax purposes. Also, if the interest gifted is greater than $13,000, then you also have an obligation to report that gift to the IRS (using Form 709). Fortunately, for 2011 and 2012, each person is allowed to gift up to $5,000,000 during their lifetime without having to pay gift tax. So unless your business is highly valued, a gift of a business interest comes with a reporting requirement, but no real gift tax consequences. For that reason, now is good time to consider making a gift of part or all of your business to the next generation. Of course, when you make a gift, you must give up control of  whatever is gifted. That means you will give uupp control of the entire business if you choose to gift it to a child or grandchild. But you can still be involved in the business, and even be an employee of  the business. You just won’t be an owner and you won’t call the shots any more.  Adding a child or grandchild could also change the income tax  consequences of your business, depending on the type of entity  you have. Be sure to check with a tax professional before making any gift of a business interest. And remember that the addition of  anyone as a shareholder, member, partner, or owner of any type is a gift unless that person pays you full value for the interest. These are just a few examples of the way in which you can exit your business when quitting time arrives. Make sure you know your available options and never obligate yourself for your business’ debts and liabilities if you can avoid doing so. If done correctly, exiting a business can be a pleasant experience.  Keith Davidson is a partner at Albertson & Davidson,  LLP  LLP..

Elder Abuse: Preventing the Downward Spiral

Healthy Living

by Kenneth Kuck 

On March 2,2, 2011, the U.S U.S.. Senate held held a sp special ecial ccommitt ommittee ee on  Aging entitled “Justice “Justice for All: Ending Elder Abuse, Neglect and Financial Exploitation.” Exploitation.” Famed actor and entertainer Mickey Rooney Rooney stirred the room with an emotional account of his own experience as the victim of senior abuse. “Over the course of time, my daily life became unbearable, unbearable,”” Rooney said. “I was stripped of tthe he ability to make even the most basic decisions.” He dubbed his poor treatment “emotional blackmail.” blackmail.” Representatives from national national organizations, government agencies and medical professionals followed Rooney’s testimony with their own. The prevalence and seriousness of elder abuse was on the table, and the committee began legislation proactive of abuse prevention and quality enhancement. While the Senate approaches this sserious erious issue on a national level, it is my privilege to encourage abuse prevention prevention in individual households. Depending on the source, source, the number of elders abus abused ed in this country ranges from 11- 3 mill million. ion. One fact is certain: abused seniors seniors are grossly underare under-represented. -represented. While there no excuseShould for anyany form of abuse, there ways to prevent it fromisoccurring. ssenior enior or family member grow concerned concerned about abuse, I strongly encourage them to seek professional or community community assistance. Respite exists in many forms and is known to improve the welfare, not only of the affected senior, senior, but for the fami family ly caregiver caregiver.. When a knowledgeabl knowledgeable, e, professional care source source enters the home, home, a family caregiver can get the time they need to rest and fulfill other responsibilities. Also on the family’s side is the opportunity to receive courtesy care calls by telephone. One concerning violation is passive abuse from family members. In all reality, life becomes hectic for adult children who cannot check  on their elderly loved one as much as they would like. like. However, However, when visits visits become few and far between is when passive abuse occurs. It takes fform orm when famil familyy caregivers lack the knowledge and skill needed to give their loved one the care they truly need.  As ironic as it seems, by not seeking some form of help, these people people are ignoring their their care respons responsibilities. ibilities. Family caregivers may also vent anger and frustration to their elder family member as they succumb to stress and pressure. There are several ways to ascertain the security and well-being of a senior. senior. These include obvious indicators of abuse such as bruising and other evidence of physical harm, signs signs of malnouris malnourishment hment,, bed sores sores,, poor living conditions and missing personal belongings. The list continu continues es to emotional factors such as changes in personality, personality, anxiety and evasiveness. Professional caregivers are trained to report any abuse that they witness or suspect. For families struggling to provide care for an elderly loved one, one, I have outlined outlined open

communication, quality checks and ongoing ongoing education as three practices that can make all the difference. Open communication – T Talk alk with your loved one. Ask them if there is anything that they they need, or that would make tthem hem more comfortable.  Address their concerns. If their care requirements are outside of your abilities, consult a medical professional professional or a senior care advisor advisor.. Quality Checks – Regularly check the residence of the senior for safety hazards and any incomplete incomplete household maintenance. Make sure your loved one is clean and as healthy as possible. Ongoing education – Learn about any conditions your loved one may have. Keep tabs tabs on how the world world impacts impacts the their ir lives. lives. In esse essence, nce, see the world from their eyes; this will help you to be a better caregiver.

In Mickey Rooney’s words to the Senate, “You “You all have the right to control your life and and be happy happy.” .” Even as old age settles in, daily life should be a positive positive experience. As we exercise respect and compassion toward ourselves, our family and our senior citizens, citizens, we will all see the positive upturn of family life.
