Temecula Valley Chamber at State Capitol Promoting Priorities
T
he Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce met in Sacramento at the State Capitol
with four area state legislators that represent the Southwest California region. The
Chamber, along with its regional business advocacy coalition, the Southwest California
Legislative Council, discussed legislative priorities such as workplace flexibility, lifting
regulations on businesses, and transportation infrastructure investments. The Chamber
urged legislators to continue supporting the business community throughout the region.
“We are very lucky to have business friendly legislators in Sacramento who take the time to
listen to our priorities and show great support for the wide range of business related issues
in our region,” stated Alice Sullivan, President and CEO of the Chamber. “They listened
to our concerns and ideas and we all discussed opportunities for possible partnerships
on legislation that will have a positive impact on our business community,” continued
Sullivan.
The Chamber met with Assembly Members Kevin Jeffries and John J. Benoit along with
State Senator Dennis Hollingsworth and staff members from State Senator Jim Battin’s
office. The Chamber also discussed its positions on over 25 different pieces of legislation that it is tracking in 2008, including other transportation related issues and the
continuing need for further workers’ compensation reforms. The trip concluded with a
breakfast and speech by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The Chamber also values the role that
its business community plays in impacting change in Sacramento. Businesses
can participate in letter writing campaigns through the advocacy based Web
site, www.SouthwestCA.biz. Businesses
can also sign up for a legislative eALERT
that the Chamber emails to its members
to take action on important issues. All
current positions are on the Chamber’s
advocacy website and are available for
reviewing and submitting letters.

advocacy efforts of the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce.
Temecula Valley Chamber Works to Decrease Truck Traffic on Our Freeways
T
he Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Growth Options for
the 21st Century (Go21), a non-profit, grassroots organization dedicated to finding
solutions to our nation’s increasing freight transportation needs. One such solution is a
pair of federally proposed new laws called the Freight Rail Infrastructure Capacity Expansion Act (FRICEA).
The Southwest California region is under the burden of increased freight truck traffic that
allows our highways to crumble and become overburdened. These trucks, as most states
and regions understand, lengthen commute times, frequently endangering other highway
passengers, and add unnecessary pollutants to the environment, as well as reducing the
air quality in the region. Railroads have proven to be safer and cleaner.
The FRICEA legislation (S. 1125 and H.R. 2116) would be a significant step in the right
direction to ensure railways achieve a more equal footing to our highways and waterborne
modes of transportation.
The Chamber believes it is important for elected officials to enact policies that will save
taxpayers’ money, increase opportunities for economic development within our communities, improve our air quality, build a more efficient transportation system, and reduce our
dependence on oil. No time will be better than the present to support the FRICEA. Goods
movement is expected to grow rapidly while the current transportation infrastructure is
deteriorating and insufficient to handle additional loads.
“The FRICEA places a spotlight on the need for expanding our current rail system and
allows for greater rail access in order to move goods more efficiently and help reduce
truck traffic on our Southwest California freeways,” stated Alice Sullivan, President/CEO
of the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce. “These federal pieces of legislation will
also provide incentives to businesses to invest in new freight rail infrastructure which will
ultimately expand rail capacity and lead to more grade separations throughout our region,
Sullivan continued.

California State University San Marcos Announces Temecula Off-Campus Center
D
uring the past year, the City of Temecula has been working with California State
University San Marcos (CSUSM) to establish a permanent presence in Temecula.

medical industry, expansions of several local hospitals and the planned Temecula Hospital

announcing their plans to open up a 15,000 square foot off-campus center located at

The Temecula City Council continues to be actively engaged in attracting higher education
institutions to the area. “We are excited to see CSUSM join our community. Providing
higher education opportunities for our residents is important to the Temecula City Council
and we recognize the many economic benefits it brings to our area,” said Mayor Naggar, a
member of the Council’s Higher Education Subcommittee.
Paul Goldring Garrett Institute For Higher Learning California State University San Marcos at Temecula
The City of Temecula is in the process of establishing a 501c(3) non-profit “Higher
Education Foundation.” The Foundation’s primary focus will be capital fund raising for
supporting higher education. Mr. Paul Goldring Garrett, Founder and Chairman of The
Garrett Group LLC and BetterWorld Together Foundation, will provide the first contribution
to the Foundation by donating a $250,000 grant in support of the immediate opportunity
to locate and commence operations in the city.
Universal Health Systems and Southwest Healthcare System Rancho Springs are looking
forward to building a strong long-term relationship with CSUSM and their nursing program.
Rancho Springs and Inland Valley medical centers will serve as clinical training centers for
the nursing students attending the Temecula off-campus center.
The City of Temecula welcomes California State University San Marcos and is pleased
to have them as a key higher education partner in our community. “Additional higher
education offerings will allow Temecula to maintain its quality of life and allow the city’s
neighborhoods and businesses to continue to draw high-paid, well-educated residents
and employees,” said Council Member Chuck Washington a member of the City’s Higher
Education Subcommittee.

Vitalgift Tissue Service
I
n March 2006, VitalGift Tissue Services, a not-for-profit 501(c) (3) organization, accredited
by the America Association of tissue Banks (AATB) and licensed by the FDA, opened its
doors to meet an ever increasing critical demand. W. Denis Nurmela, CEO of VitalGift made the
decision to start the company after its predecessor Southeast Tissue Alliance, SETA, decided to
close its West Coast Operations and concentrate on the core business in Florida. SETA honored
the wishes of over 800 families in its six year run in California; and once they left the area,
options for donation were drastically limited and for some families the options were removed.
With 20 years of background in surgery services, Denis has witnessed for himself the miracle
of donation and transplantation and hoped that he could be part of offering this gift to more
patients in need.
Tissue donation gives hope to thousands of people with cancer, severe burns, trauma and
other life threatening and life altering diseases and illness. Imagine what this gift can do for a
child in need of a heart valve; for the blind or for patients suffering from trauma or injury. This
selfless and generous donation can help between fifty and one hundred patients in need.
VitalGift Tissue Services has now taken on the mission to provide and expand the options
available to families in Southern California. Without VitalGift, many thousands of tissue
recipients would not receive this vital gift… and hundreds of donor families would not be
afforded the option to exercise their right to donate the gift of life.
If you would like more information about this valuable service, you can visit their offices at
2091 W. Florida Ave., Suite 205 in Hemet. Check out their website at www.vitalgift.org to
learn more. The phone number is (888) 601-GIFT.
Elite Systems Integrators, Inc. (ESI) is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and a Microsoft
Small Business Specialist, specializing in network infrastructure and business intelligence solutions; and Apples and Jack Rabbits, Inc. is Apple Certified, focusing on Macintosh systems and data recovery. This alliance will provide Southwest Riverside County
with a one-stop shop for computer networking solutions. “We have worked closely over
the last year, making cross-referrals to ensure our respective clients received the best
service possible and this is a natural step to continue giving the first-class service our
clients have come to enjoy” stated Rick Risner, President of ESI.
Michelle Deskin, co-owner of Apples and Jack Rabbits, is pleased to join the ESI team,
proclaiming “My real passion is connecting people. This will allow me to get out of the
office and do what I enjoy most, which is helping people!” Mrs. Deskin will assume the
position of Marketing Coordinator for Riverside County.
“Michelle is a natural born networker and she genuinely wants to help people,” added Mr.
Risner. “She did a marvelous job building up Apples and Jack Rabbits. We couldn’t be
happier to have her on our team.” The transition began June 1st and be completed over
the summer months; and will continue doing business under the ESI brand.
Elite Systems Integrators, Inc. is a leading network integrator to organizations across the
U.S., the United Kingdom, Australia, and Mexico. ESI specializes in offering advanced

Meritage at Callaway Now Open
A
restaurant rich in tradition and excellence,
Meritage at Callaway perfectly describes
the legacy of Callaway Vineyard & Winery. Since
1969, Callaway has been recognized as a leader
in producing quality wines in the Temecula Valley.
The word “Meritage” is a combination of the words
“merit” meaning “superior quality” and “heritage”
meaning “tradition” and was created as a recognizable name associated with high
quality blended wines. Meritage at Callaway applies this high quality concept of pairing
food and wine to create the perfect dining experience.
Boasting spectacular panoramic vineyard and hillside views, the multi-tiered arbor
terrace offers an outdoor dining experience unparalleled in Temecula wine country.
Executive Chef, Michael Henry, has designed an exciting Tapas menu with a Mediterranean
flare. The cuisine will be based on the “small plate” concept of big flavor and variety,
with menu selections being paired with the best of what Callaway Winery offers. Order
one or several, then enjoy them like the Spanish do – with a glass of wine and a relaxed
attitude!
Meritage at Callaway offers a selection of daily specials, as well as on-site catering for
private events and weddings.
Hailing from coastal New Jersey, Meritage at Callaway’s Executive Chef, Michael Henry,
was lured into the culinary world at age 13, cooking at restaurants along the Jersey Shore.
Michael realized his passion and enthusiasm for food, leading him to Johnson and Wales
University and eventually an apprenticeship in an upscale local Italian restaurant.
At Meritage at Callaway, Michael’s goal is to create diverse, seasonal menus that
accentuate Callaway’s long history of fine Temecula wine. Michael hopes to meld all he
has seen, tasted and experienced into soulful memories for all who dine here.
Join us every Thursday, Friday & Saturday evenings from 5 - 8pm for our Chef’s Wine
& Food Tasting menu or a la carte tapas menu . Reservations suggested for the Chef’s
Tasting Menu. For reservations or more information, please call 951-587-8889 or

Computerman Tips on Defensive Computing
D
efensive Computing is the art of defending your computer from the bad guys. Bad
guys in computer terms are spyware, viruses, and cookies. Each of these bad guys
influences your computer in different ways. Having teenagers in my home, I have to be very
diligent about my computer’s defenses. For instance, my teenagers like to surf the web,
download programs, games, videos, pictures, and music. Much to my distress, many of the
bad guys live here in this “free” internet world.
Spyware is computer software that is installed unwittingly on any type of computer
through installation of these different programs. Spyware can slow your computer
down, redirect your computer to websites the creators of the spyware want you to visit,
divert your viewing to advertising revenue for them, change your computer home page,
share sensitive and personal information over the web, and inspire lots of pop-up
advertisements.
Spyware first meant hardware used for espionage and began gaining popularity around
the year 2000. According to various surveys by different internet service providers,
most computers are infected with some type of spyware. Computers that routinely use
Internet Explorer are particularly vulnerable to attacks. Another term that has recently
come into its own is Adware. Adware is Spyware that displays advertisements to you
after it spies on what you are looking at on the internet.
As Spyware threats have become increasingly more common, there has been an influx
of “Spyware Removal” programs over the internet. Many of these sites can actually add
more spyware to your computer and ultimately hurt you rather than help. Remedies to
spyware include legitimate programs to block spyware such as Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware.
For severely infected machines, the only remedy may involve backing up the user’s data
and fully reinstall the operating system.
Other choices include using a web browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Opera. Though
no browser is completely guaranteed, it appears that Internet Explorer poses a much
greater risk because of having so many users and having programs that are vulnerable
to attack. Organizations that have a larger network may build firewalls and web proxies
to block access to websites that install spyware. Firewalls can be software or hardware
that can be added to your computer network by a certified network technician.
As the world is changing and technology becomes more and more a necessary part
of our lives, it is important to keep up on all the changing ways it can affect us. If in
doubt, do not download the program. Read licensing agreements carefully and decide
if there are programs that you do not want installed on your computer before you check
the “yes” or “accept” box. In all cases, routinely run your legitimate Spyware removal
program and Virus Scan your computer on a regular basis. If you want more protection,
secure your network by contacting a reputable professional. Although these tricks of the
trade will never completely protect us, it will sure slow them down.
That’s all for now! Up, Up and Away……..

grant allocation in the amount of $466,806.
The Construction Talent Transfer Grant, as proposed by the Economic Development Agency,
is collaborative with the County of San Bernardino. Other partners include both Riverside
& San Bernardino County Work Force Development Boards, The University of California at
Riverside, Riverside and San Bernardino Community Colleges, International Brotherhood
of Electrical Workers, Riverside-San Bernardino Building and Construction Trades Council,
AFL-CIO. These organizations have partnered to form the “Inland Counties Construction
Consortium or “ICCC.”

needed, pre-apprentice program, and job apprenticeships. It is our plan to give these
workers the bridge training needed for a successful transition from residential construction
into public works projects and/or commercial employment. We will make every effort
possible to get these men and women trained, educated, and returned to our workforce,”
said Robin Zimpfer, Assistant County Executive Officer/ EDA.

New Mobile Phone Law Creates Additional Liabilities for Businesses
B
eginning July 1, tens of thousands of drivers in California may be surprised by a $20
ticket for talking on their mobile phone. That’s when the state’s new law goes into
effect. For subsequent offenses, it’s $50.
Separate legislation that becomes law the same day prohibits all drivers under 18 from
using any mobile device at all while driving – emergency calls exempted.
But that’s not the real issue for businesses.
No, the bigger problem is liability. And it could cost businesses much more than $50.
Question: What happens when your employee who is talking on a company issued cell
phone plows into another vehicle, or worse, even causes a fatality?
Answer: Fortunately, this law only applies to the driver of the vehicle. Employers will not
be ticketed or otherwise fined, but if they require employees to use their mobile phones while
driving, or employers are not clear enough in their prohibition of the use of phones, they can
be held liable for costs associated with car accidents while the employee is working.
Question: What happens if your company needs employees to be available in their cars via mobile
phone, such as with salespeople? Should employees be supplied with a hands-free device?
Answer: The law does not provide an answer to this question, but it strongly recommends
against requiring employees to be available by mobile phone while driving, as it exposes
businesses to significant liability. An argument can be made that if hands-free devices
are provided to employees in response to this law, businesses are endorsing the use of
phones while driving and could be held liable.
Question: What if an employee uses a cell phone for personal use while driving to work and
gets injured? Is the employer liable for workers’ compensation benefits?
Answer: This would depend on numerous factors that should be discussed with legal
counsel and insurance carriers. Employers may try to defend against an employee
receiving workers’ comp benefits by claiming the employee engaged in willful misconduct,
but this is a high burden and only is successful in limited circumstances.
Question: And what about the popular push-to-talk phones, are they ok?
Answer: No. The law does, however, provide an exception for those operating a commercial
motor truck or truck tractor (excluding pickups) to use a two-way radio operated by a
“push-to-talk” feature. And a push-to-talk feature attached to a hands-free ear piece or
other hands-free device is acceptable.
Question: Can drivers dial, text or read email while driving?
Answer: The law is unclear on this issue, but if there is an accident when this happens,
your company could be vulnerable to liability.
Question: So what should employers do to prepare for these new laws?
Answer:
· Consult with legal counsel, particularly if you hire minors and/or have employees who
regularly use their cell phones or are on the road a lot.
· Adopt a clear policy that prohibits the use of any mobile phones while driving.
· Train supervisors and managers to communicate to their staff about the company’s
policy prohibiting the use of mobile phones while driving.
· Discipline employees who violate the policy.

Tricks to Get More Traffic to Your Website
By Mike Caudill, DRIVEN Media Communications and VYP Media Chair
W
anna know how to get more traffic to your company web site? Well, without
getting too technical, there are a host of things you can do to make your web site
more efficient. Today’s tip is pretty simple. Each page of your web site is being reviewed
by the search engines out there on the internet. Examples of such search engines would
of course be Google, Yahoo and Ask.com. The search engines deploy something called
web crawlers that continually screen your company web site for updates and changes.
When a change occurs, it’s noted with the search engine and increases your ranking,
thus moving your web site up on the search lists. This is important because you want
your customers or potential customers to see you before the competition!
www.driveontheweb.com. When the site loads, right click on the screen, view page source
and voila…it tells you the meta information.
If you are the one making changes to your web site through a Content Management
System or CMS, it will take you literally five minutes to add information to your meta tabs.
If you don’t use a CMS, then forward this to your Web master and ask them to do this for
you. It might cost, but it’s worth it.
So, that’s today’s tech tip brought to you by the Young Valley Professionals. Next newsletter,
tune in and we’ll give you five tips to keeping your car running smoothly!
How do you do this? Just add more content to your web site on a routine basis. However,
there is another small trick that will really maximize your exposure. Each page you create
for your web site has a series of words that help the web crawler identify your site. These
key words are what truly help elevate your exposure and ranking. The technical term is
meta tabs, but for the purposes of this exercise…just call them key words.
Each month the Chamber will be including
an article from the Valley Young Professionals
(VYP) committee. These tips and articles will
be written by the VYPs from their business perspective and are meant to be useful and interesting to the entire TVCC membership. To learn
more about VYP visit, www.TemeculaVYP.org
If you use your cursor (do this now) and right click on a web site, click the properties
button. When the properties come up, click on view page source. Under page source you
will see the word meta on the left side. Next to it are the key words that describe each and
every page on your web site. Use our web site as an example, type in your web browser
Rising Gas Prices Spark New Demand for 4-Day Workweeks
By Marti Fisher, CalChamber
G
asoline in California cost $4.63 per gallon this week, more than double
the price of a year ago, according to the Energy Information Administration. In addition, traffic congestion is getting worse and Californians are
increasingly looking for ways to clean up the environment.
More information about establishing an alternative workweek schedule is available in the
CalChamber’s California Labor Law Digest and in Chapter 56, “Alternative Workweek Arrangements,” of the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement field enforcement manual
at www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/Manual-Instructions.htm.
One strategy that would have a positive impact on household gas budgets, commuter
congestion and the environment would be permitting employees to work alternative work
schedules such as four 10-hour days rather than five eight-hour days in a week.
Although the multi-step process can be challenging and cumbersome, it does present an
opportunity for employers to implement 4/10 schedules to benefit their employees and
their business.
Alternative Workweek
Flexible Workweek Legislation
California law allows an employer to implement alternative schedules for all employees
in a specified work unit by following a series of steps, including holding a secret ballot
election.
This year, many local chambers of commerce sponsored AB 2127 (Benoit; R-Bermuda
Dunes), which would have permitted an individual employee in a non-union workplace
to request, and the employer to grant, an alternative workweek schedule without going
through the election process.
Under current Labor Code 511 and following Industrial Welfare Commission wage orders,
employers may institute alternative work schedules if two-thirds of affected employees
agree to the arrangement by secret ballot.
In moving to an alternative work schedule, however, an employer must carefully follow the
rules so as to avoid being subjected to potential lawsuits.
More Information
Information on how to implement an alternative work schedule in accordance with the
current requirements is available on the CalChamber’s HR California website.
Water, Water, Water...
Action Needs to be Taken Now – Both Governor and Local Assemblyman Agree
C
alifornia is facing a serious water crisis. After two years of below-average rainfall, snowmelt runoff and court-ordered water transfer restrictions, Governor
Schwarzenegger has proclaimed a drought in California and is encouraging all of us to
conserve water through the remainder of this year and into 2009.
This crisis highlights the state’s need for a long-term solution to our water supply needs.
It is more important that ever that the Legislature work with Governor Schwarzenegger to
pass a comprehensive plan for the state’s water infrastructure that supplies the water we
drink and fuels our farmers.
That is why Governor Schwarzenegger is leading the effort in our Capitol to pass a water infrastructure plan. As part of his budget, he has proposed $11.8 billion to invest in water storage,
Delta sustainability, water stewardship, conservation, and water quality improvement.
Help Governor Schwarzenegger put into place a water plan for California that will keep our
faucets flowing and our farmers growing food for generations to come.
Take Action NOW – visit www.JoinArnold.com to email your legislators today and ask them to
work with the Governor to solve California’s water challenges!
California’s farmers and families cannot afford to wait any longer for a real solution!
Assemblyman Kevin Jeffries (R-Lake Elsinore) applauds Governor Schwarzenegger for signing an executive order declaring a drought and calling for concerted state action to conserve
water and better coordinate efforts by local water districts and agencies to deal with water
shortages. “I would like to thank the Governor for his continued focus on the current and
long-term shortages of water in California. Two of the areas hit hardest by this drought
are the Inland Empire and Northern San Diego County, both within my district. I welcome
these efforts by the Governor to expedite the release of previously approved bond funds to
local districts to aid in conservation, recycling, and groundwater storage efforts,” said Assemblyman Jeffries.
San Diego County’s critical agriculture industry has also already been hard hit with increased water rates and a mandatory 30% cut in agricultural water usage. Jeffries commented, “as avocado, citrus, and grape growers are forced to stop farming by these drought
restrictions, we will see these orchards and vineyards replaced by homes and other developments that will only use more water. We need to recognize that we are all in this water
shortage together, and must work cooperatively to increase the supply of water in California
so that we can preserve our economy and our way of life.”

Old Town Temecula!
Old Town Center
Completion expected by the end of 2008
Not just an office……..a way of life!
Approximately 30,000 square foot mixed use, restaurant, retail and office. All steel
construction that emulates four separate zero clearance buildings. Two brick, one
Queen Ann and one Victorian. All of which could have been built between 1850 and
1920. Located in the heart of Old Town Temecula at Front and Fifth St, the design is
painstakingly detailed to capture the ambiance of such unique walking areas as the
San Diego Gas Lamp. The building has been flood proofed to allow the elevation to
be virtually level with the City sidewalk and includes outside seating at the public
walkway only separated with public benches at the same level. Generous balconies
are tastefully sprinkled though out the upper floors overlooking Front and Fifth streets
to cause occupancy to be more of a way of life than just another office.
Already 40% leased, the competitive rates allow tenants to lease or own a piece of
Old Town.
