6 SPOTLIGHT THE LADWP BLOOD DRIVE Thursday, June 27, 2013 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., A-Level in the JFB Cafeteria Conference Center Call the Employees Association at (213) to make an appointment. Blood is needed for emergencies and for people who have cancer, blood disorders, sickle cell, anemia and other illnesses. Some people need regular blood transfusions to live. Imagine if giving blood was part of everyone s life. Something you did on a regular basis, like eating at your favorite restaurant. What kind of difference would that make? For nearly 5 million people who receive blood transfusions every year, your donation can make the difference between life and death. TOP 5 REASONS PEOPLE DON T GIVE BLOOD 1. I don t like needles / I am scared of needles / I am afraid to give blood Nearly everyone feels that way at first. However, most donors will tell you that you feel only a slight initial pinch, and 7-10 minutes later, you are finished and headed for the canteen. If you take the time (and courage) to make one donation, you ll wonder why you ever hesitated. 2. I am too busy The entire process takes about an hour, and the ACTUAL BLOOD DONATION TIME IS ONLY 7-10 MINUTES. If you stop to think that an hour of your time could mean a lifetime for a premature baby, someone with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, or someone who s had an accident, you might decide that you can make the time to give the gift of life. 3. No-one ever asked me I didn t realize my blood was needed Consider yourself asked! There is simply no other way to supply the blood needs of hospital patients but for the generous donations of people like you. Every two seconds someone in America needs blood. More than 38,000 donations are needed every day in communities across the U.S. 4. I already gave this year You can give every 56 days. Many donors give 5 times a year! 5. I am afraid I ll get AIDS It is not possible to get AIDS by donating blood to the American Red Cross. A new sterile needle is used for each donor and discarded afterwards. Advertisment and copy above are courtesy of the American Red Cross, Please check with your supervisor, then call the Employees Association to make an appointment at (213) ASSOCIATION REPORT

22 ON THE COVER WAYS TO BEAT THE HEAT A summer of enjoyment at special LADWP discounted prices! How many of us can recall days spent running through the sprinklers trying desperately to beat the California heat? Summers in California are a favorite time of year, the radiant sun brushing your skin, children s laughter filling the air as they run free from another school year accomplished. It is a time of renewal, and a time to appreciate the child in us all. What better way to accomplish both than to head down to one of California s water parks? Water rides meant to tickle your tummy and cool your skin await you and your children everyday of the summer. If you feel daring there are rides such as The Abyss, Honolulu Half Pipe, The Black Hole or the death defying Pacific Spin. However, if you find that you are more of the relaxation type then try the Lizard Lagoon or the Kiddie Congo. Regardless of the intensity of your fun meter, there is a vast array of rides that each park offers. Don t forget that your Employees Association offers great discount prices to each of the water parks available soon!

23 FINDING THE RIGHT MORTGAGE IS AS IMPORTANT AS FINDING THE RIGHT HOUSE. Learn all you can about the options at PNC. To find the right mortgage, ask yourself: Do I want a predictable payment or am I okay with a variable rate? Do I qualify for an FHA loan or a loan for veterans? Will my home loan be more than $417,000? Do I want to keep my payments as low as possible, or build equity more quickly? You know what you want in a home. But what about the loan for buying it? To find out what your options are, give me a call. We can review the many types of mortgages PNC offers. So you ll have both a home and a home loan that are right for you. Solution: Fixed Rate Mortgage FHA Loan Combination Loan VA Loan Jumbo Loan Adjustable Rate Mortgage Interest Only Mortgage Benefit: Predictable monthly payment Low down payment means more cash after closing for moving expenses and home décor Lower monthly first mortgage payment and no private mortgage insurance with only 10% down 1 No down payment for qualified borrowers For homes in a higher price range Lower monthly payment 2 Lower monthly payment in initial years of the loan allows for more options in higher price range 3 Karen Onifer Mortgage Loan Officer NMLS# FINANCE SM 1 Consult with a tax professional regarding the deductibility of interest.

24 SPONSORED CLUBS Action at SPiN Standard, The KillaWatts and Mega Hurtz home venue. LADWP Table Tennis Club opens play in the Los Angeles Table Tennis Federation The LADWP Table Tennis Club (DWPTTC) has two teams participating in the Los Angeles Table Tennis Federation (LATTF), a league of table tennis teams that features some of the finest club players in Southern California. The DWPTTC is sponsored annually by the Donor s Welfare Plan which also supports several clubs in the department. The two teams that are competing for LADWP are the KillaWatts and Mega Hurtz. The KillaWatts compete in Division 2B. Their members are LADWP Table Tennis Club president and team captain Paul Sierra, Miguel Munoz, Paul Pau, Roger Boden and Tom Nguyen. Mega Hurtz competes in Divsion 3 and features team captain Wing Tam, Eric Botero, Chih-hong Hsieh, Jaime Fidello and Michael Cheung. Mega Hurtz opened the season on March 24 losing a tight match to High Five who plays out of the Gilbert Table Tennis Center in the Miracle Mile area. High Five had as their ace a 9 year old prodigy who attacked with devastating precision. He was the difference as High Five nipped Mega Hurtz 3-2. Eric Botero led the way with a singles win and paired with Chih-hong Hsieh to take a doubles win and account for their two points. On April 7, Mega Hurtz again suffered a tough 4-1 loss to Ararat B out of Glendale. The closest opportunity for a league win narrowly escaped Mega Hurtz on April 13 against the San Fernando Valley s Orange Crush. The teams were tied overall at 2 wins a piece. The stage was set for a showdown with Jaime Fidello working to a 2-2 tie with the fifth and final game remaining to decide which team would secure the league win. Fidello was just edged by the Crush s Ken Gonzales to take the final and deciding match at 3-2. The KillaWatts had a very tough opening draw against the league s top seed in the Grace Lin Table Tennis Club on March 30. Department of Water and Power Table Tennis Club GLTTC features some of the nation s top juniors. Paul Sierra started with a win over power hitter June Lim with an assortment of clever serves and timely blocks putting the KillaWatts up 1-0. That was the only win of the day as the KillWatts went down 4-1. The KillaWatts came through on April 14 defeating the previously 2nd place Ararat A from Glendale 3-2. With the win, the KillaWatts moved into a tie for 2nd in LATTF play. Sierra opened with a convincing win. Roger Boden and Miguel Munoz teamed up masterfully to pull off a fantastic doubles win. The match included some fierce rallies and blistering smashes. The KillaWatts only needed one more win to seal the overall match after the doubles win staked them to a 2-1 lead. Sierra came up with the deciding win with a set score of 3-1 win over tha Ararat number one seed, Rolland Garabidian. The overall final tally had the KillaWatts over Ararat A, 3-2. The KillaWatts are now 1-1 in league play. The KillaWatts get a rematch with Grace Lin TTC at their club in El Monte at 10:00 AM on Saturday, May 4. They then visit The Invincibles at Robofit TTC in Lomita on Saturday May 11 at 5:00 PM. Mega Hurtz once again sees the prodigy on April 27 at SPiN Standard at 12:30 PM followed by a match against Ararat B on Sunday, May 12 at 2:00 p.m. in Glendale. The teams need your support. Come and watch the action! Both teams use the new, upscale table tennis nightclub SPiN Standard as their home venue on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. It is co-owned by actress Susan Sarandon. SPiN Standard is located on the second floor of LA Standard Hotel on 6th and Flower. 22 ASSOCIATION REPORT

28 RECIPES BANANARAMA WAFER PUDDING INGREDIENTS 2 cups fat-free milk 1 small (4-serving) package sugar-free fat-free instant vanilla pudding mix 24 reduced-fat vanilla round wafer cookies (recommended: Reduced Fat Nilla) 2 medium bananas, sliced Fat-free whipped topping (thawed from frozen), optional DIRECTIONS Combine milk with pudding mix in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer or a whisk for 2 minutes, or until thoroughly blended. Set aside. In a 9-inch square baking pan, arrange a layer of wafers, flat sides down, and then top with a layer of banana slices. Continue alternating layers until all of the wafers and banana slices are in the dish. Top the dish with the pudding and let it seep down in between the wafer and banana layers. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours. If desired, add whipped topping before serving. SWEET-AND-SPICY BABY BACK RIBS INGREDIENTS 3 1-pound racks baby back pork ribs Juice of 1 lemon Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 1/2 cup lager-style beer 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 8 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon chipotle chile powder 1 cup Thai sweet chile sauce (such as Mae Ploy) 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar 1/3 cup rice vinegar (not seasoned) DIRECTIONS Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Put the ribs meat-side down on a cutting board. Insert a paring knife between the membrane and the bones on one end of each rack, then loosen the membrane and pull it off. Rub the ribs with the lemon juice and sprinkle evenly with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Place the ribs bone-side down in a large roasting pan, then add the beer. Cover tightly with foil, transfer to the oven and roast until the meat pulls away from the bone, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, make the sauce: Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; add the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly golden, about 2 minutes. Add the chile powder and cook 1 minute. Stir in the chile sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened and reduced by half, about 40 minutes. Remove the ribs from the oven; increase the temperature to 400 degrees F. Uncover the pan; carefully pour out the cooking liquid. Stir 1/4 cup cooking liquid into the sauce, then discard the rest of the liquid. Generously brush the ribs with the sauce. Return the pan to the oven and continue roasting, uncovered, until the ribs are golden brown and tender, about 35 minutes. Transfer the ribs to a cutting board and slice, then return to the roasting pan. Pour the remaining sauce on top and toss. 26 ASSOCIATION REPORT
