PRESS RELEASE

City of Fullerton

April 23, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

City of Fullerton to extend deadline to recruit volunteers for The Downtown Core and Corridors Specific Plan Advisory Committee (DPAC)

Fullerton, CA  - On April 23, 2013, The City of Fullerton Planning Department announced that it will continue to accept applications for the Downtown Core and Corridors Specific Plan Advisory Committee (DPAC) until Friday, April 26, 2013.  Although the City has received several applications from well qualified candidates, the goal is to have representation from all of the eight “neighborhoods” represented on the project plan as well as members from the business community, the Korean community, the Latino community, a senior community member and a youth/young adult representative.  To ensure the community has had ample time to review the application and respond, the deadline is being extended until the end of the week. 

The Downtown Core and Corridors Specific Plan is an planning effort intended to guide the future vision for the Downtown Core and Corridors areas and ensure our downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods are thriving and sustainable. To assist with this effort, a committee representing the multiple interests of the study area will be appointed to provide input and guidance throughout the work program. The “Advisory Committee” will be responsible for reviewing information, providing feedback on topics, recommending priorities, soliciting the participation of the community at large and working to represent specific interests of the community. To ensure  the Advisory Committee includes a balance of perspectives and interests, the group is intended to be composed of the following cross-section of the community:

West Commonwealth – 2 members
• East Corridor – 2 members
• University Neighborhood – 2 members
• Orangethorpe/Magnolia Neighborhood – 2 members
• Brea/Harbor Neighborhood – 2 members
• Downtown Core – 2 members
• Orangethorpe/Euclid – 2 members
• Orangethorpe/Brookhurst – 2 member
• Orangethorpe/Harbor – 2 members
• Community Serving Partner Organizations (e.g., Faith based, St. Jude, etc.)– 1    member
• Korean Community Partner – 1 member
• Latino Community Partner – 1 member
• Development Community – 1 member
• Broker/Realtor – 1 member
• Business Community – up to 3 members
• Historic Preservation – 1 member
• Parent Teacher’s Association (PTA) or Elementary/Middle School – 1 member
• Youth Community Partner – 1 member
• Senior Community Partner – 1 member
• Non-Profit Community Based Organizations (Fullerton Beautiful, NUFF, etc.) – 1 member

The study will involve the active participation of City Staff, a team of consultants, the public at large, and the City Council. The Advisory Committee will play a key role in providing insight and guidance during the Specific Plan process. Please be aware that selected Advisory Committee members will not receive any financial compensation for their service. The first meeting is planned for Thursday, May 9 at 6:30 pm. The Committee members will need to attend approximately eight (8) evening meetings during an eighteen (18) month period. It will be important that each Advisory Committee member attend all meetings throughout the process. If you are interested in being considered for the Advisory Committee position, based on the information above, please complete the application form, available on the City’s website www.ci.fullerton.ca.us or by visiting www.fullertonplanningforum.com, and submit to Heather Allen, Planning Manager at HeatherA@ci.fullerton.ca.us, by April 26, 2013.

My Grandma - A Eulogy

LET'S TALK ABOUT 1914 FOR A MOMENT.



FOR STARTERS, GRANDMA WAS BORN TUESDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1914 IN HER FAMILY'S ATWOOD RANCH HOUSE.



IT IS WORTH NOTING THOSE ALSO BORN IN 1914:

JACK LALANNE

JOE DIMAGGIO

DANNY THOMAS



AND WHO DIED IN 1914:

JOHN MUIR, THE FAMOUS NATURALIST FOR WHICH NUMEROUS ROADS, PARKS, HOTELS, AND NATURE RESERVES ARE NAMED.



IT IS ALSO WORTH NOTING THAT IN 1914 WOODROW WILSON SIGNS MOTHER'S DAY PROCLAMATION AND BABE RUTH MAKES HIS MAJOR LEAGUE DEBUT WITH THE RED SOX. MOTHER'S DAY AND BASEBALL- TWO OF MY FAVORITES!! (PERHAPS HER NICKNAME "BABE" CAME FROM BABE RUTH???)



GRANDMA WAS BORN INTO A PERIOD OF TIME FILLED WITH TURMOIL. IN JUNE OF 1914 ARCHDUKE FRANZS FERDINAND WAS ASSASSINATED. WITHIN ONE MONTH WORLD WAR I RAGED ACROSS EUROPE. TWO DAYS AFTER HER BIRTH HOWEVER, GERMAN AND BRITISH TROOPS INTERRUPTED WWI TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS. (PERHAPS THEY PAUSE KNOWING THAT A GREAT WOMAN WAS BORNE) WORLD WAR I CONTINUED UNTIL THE TREATY OF VERSAILLES IN 1919.



ALTHOUGH SHE WAS ONLY 5 YEARS OLD, SHE SAW THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS CREATED AND THE 19TH AMENDMENT WAS APPROVED BY THE U.S. CONGRESS GUARANTEEING THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN TO VOTE.



SHE LIVED THROUGH MANY NOTABLE EVENTS. LIKE THE 1933 LONG BEACH EARTHQUAKE OR WHEN ATWOOD FLOODED ALONG WITH MOST OF ORANGE COUNTY IN 1938 AND THE FLOOD-WATERS CLAIMED MORE THAN 50 PEOPLE, 43 OF WHICH WERE FROM ATWOOD! ALL OF THIS DURING A TIME THAT WE READ ABOUT IN SCHOOL AND KNOWN AS "THE GREAT DEPRESSION". SOMEWHERE IN ALL OF THAT SHE FOUND THE LOVE OF HER LIFE, GRANDPA LEO, GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL, GOT MARRIED, AND HAD KIDS!



THEN THERE WAS WORLD WAR II. FROM PEARL HARBOR TO HIROSHIMA, GRANDMA WAS RAISING MY UNCLE BOB AND MOM ARLINE. WITH AIR-RAID SIRENS AND BLACKOUTS SHE WAS A WIFE AND MOTHER. WHAT A TIME TO RAISE CHILDREN! I BET GRANDMA'S PARENTS WERE ABEL TO TELL HER A THING OR TWO ABOUT RAISING KIDS IN WARTIME.



GRANDMA WAS THERE WHEN THE BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA HELD THEIR 3RD ANNUAL NATIONAL JAMBOREE IN 1953. SHE SAW AIRBASES OPEN IN '42 AND CLOSE IN '99. SHE WATCHED WALTER KNOTT START UP HIS BERRY FARM AND WALT DISNEY TURN ORANGE GROVES AND STRAWBERRY PATCHES INTO DISNEYLAND!



SHE SAW THE HORSE AND CARRIAGE FADE AWAY INTO HISTORY AND SPACE TRAVEL EXPLODE BEFORE HER WITH THE FIRST LUNAR LANDING. JUST IMAGINE HOW MUCH TECHNOLOGY HAS CHANGED OVER THE LAST 100 YEARS. FROM TUBE RECTIFIERS TO SUPERCONDUCTORS; FROM TRANS-ATLANTIC TELEGRAPH CABLES TO SATELLITE TV.



SHE SAW MORE IN HER 93 YEARS THAN MOST OF US WILL EVER READ ABOUT, LET ALONE LIVE THROUGH!



OF THOSE 93 YEARS IT IS MY HONOR TO HAVE BEEN HER GRANDSON FOR 35 OF THEM. SHE WAS MY MOTHER WHEN MOM HAD TO WORK. SHE WIPED MY NOSE AND PUT FOOD IN MY MOUTH. SHE LET ME PLAY WITH GRANDPA EVEN THOUGH SHE NEEDED HIM TO TAKE HER TO THE STORE. SHE WAS MY GRANDMA AND I WILL MISS HER IMMENSELY.



JUST LOOK AROUND THIS ROOM; SHE DID THIS. SHE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR BRINGING SO MANY GOOD PEOPLE INTO THIS WORLD AND TOGETHER TODAY. THIS IS HER LEGACY.



A Dedication To My Loving Wife, Stacey. Thank you for all you do for me!

Brad Paisley - I Thought I Loved You Then


I remember trying not to stare the night that I first met you
You had me mesmerized
3 weeks later in the front porch light taking 45 min to kiss you goodnight
I hadn’t told you yet but I thought I loved you then

Chorus
Now you’re my whole life now you’re my whole world
I just can’t believe the way I feel about you girl
Like a river meets the sea
Stronger than it’s ever been
We’ve come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then.

I remember taking you back to right where I first met you
You were so surprised
There were people around
But I didn’t care I got down on one knee right there
And once again I thought I loved you then

Chorus
Now you’re my whole life now you’re my whole world
I just can’t believe the way I feel about you girl
Like a river meets the sea
Stronger than it’s ever been
We’ve come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then.

I can just see you with a baby on the way
I can just see you when your hair is turning gray
What I can’t see is how I’m ever gonna love you more
But I’ve said that before.

Now you’re my whole life now you’re my whole world
I just can’t believe the way I feel about you girl
Well look back some day at this moment that we’re in
And I'll look at you and say I thought I loved you then
And I thought I loved you then...
