Edwin Raquel as the Heneral in “Karim at Jasmin.” AJPress photos by Andy Tecson By Fe Koons The spectacle of the musical play, “Karim at Jasmin” is its  production design. The costumes stand out. The tragedy of the love story is unfortunate. Like the themes of such Broadway plays, “Les Miserables” and “Miss Saigon,” we see on stage the conflicts of revenge, suicide, life and war. The heartfelt and emotional singing of Felson Palad (Karim) is marvelous. Together with Stephanie Reese (Rajita), Karim tries to convince her that it is not her fault. Karim breaks his engagement to Rajita and tells her that it is honorable. Although it is a heart-rending scene, we see an earnest Karim who points out that genuine love is not meant for everyone. Love can be greedy as shown by the jealousy of Rajita. Heneral (Edwin Raquel), who allies himself with Rajita, continues with his intent to kill Jasmin...

This is a common question among people contemplating divorce in California when the other spouse does not live in the state.  The California Courts has the power to grant a divorce, annulment, or legal separation if either party is domiciled in the state.  Domicile is where a person lives and intends to remain.  However, there is an additional requirement if you are seeking a divorce rather than annulment or legal separation.  To obtain a divorce in California, one of the parties must have been a resident of California for six months immediately before the filing of the divorce petition.  Responding spouses can use this requirement as a defense if the Petitioning spouse does not meet such requirement when the petitioner filed for divorce.  In addition, divorce petitions may be filed in the county where at least one spouse resided for 3 months immediately prior to filing the petition. Now apart...

One thing is very clear about Jesus’s ministry as we read or listen to the Gospel: He desires that people be healed from all forms of illness, whether it is physical, spiritual, or emotional. He wants people to be liberated from any anxiety and fear, even the fear of death. He wants us to remain calm and peaceful amidst any crisis, assured of His love and presence in our lives. This is how we should relate to Jesus in our daily prayers. This is what we need to fill our minds with—the positive thought that Jesus desires our well-being, the confidence that we will get through any crisis through our faith in God, and the strength He gives us. Jesus’s healing ministry extends through the people who care for us: doctors, surgeons, nurses, care partners, and caregivers. God uses them as His instruments of healing. That is why we must...

SACRAMENTO — Governor Gavin Newsom, Senate pro Tem Mike McGuire and Speaker of the Assembly Robert Rivas, on Monday, July 1 announced a robust ballot measure to tackle property crime and the fentanyl crisis, including through targeted reforms to Proposition 47. The proposed ballot measure would implement new penalties for repeat offenders, crack down on serial shoplifters, enhance felony prosecutions for fentanyl dealers, and increase resources for drug treatment programs. “With targeted reforms to Prop 47, this ballot measure is a critical step forward in our efforts to strengthen California’s public safety laws and provide law enforcement with additional tools to address the growing concerns of property crime and the fentanyl crisis. This balanced approach cracks down on crime and protects our communities — without reverting to ineffective and costly policies of the past,” Gov. Newsom said. “Californians want safer, stronger communities, and we’re delivering exactly that with this commonsense approach,” said...

File photo/ AS temperatures rise this summer, it’s important to consider safeguarding your property from wildfires. Wildfires are the biggest hazard in San Diego County and people should create 100 feet or more of defensible space around their homes and businesses. Why is this so important? Reducing growth and clearing debris around your property can help minimize damage if a gust of wind carries a burning ember into the yard. Assess your property’s vulnerability. What would the burning ember land on? Dried leaves in your gutter? The wood pile stacked against your garage? A tall plant that sits under an overgrown tree with overhanging branches on your roof? All of these could lead to fire. Please note that during hot, dry conditions, such as when a red flag warning is issued, people should not attempt to use power tools to clear or reduce brush, as this could spark a fire...

SACRAMENTO – On Tuesday, June 25, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced an agreement to enhance the state’s ability to prepare for and potentially prevent the next pandemic by integrating the California Initiative to Advance Precision Medicine into the California Health and Human Services Agency (CalHHS) and broadening its scope to include technologies relevant to pandemic prevention. Precision medicine, particularly when used with advanced diagnostic tools for infectious diseases, has the potential to alleviate the burdens of future pandemics by enabling early detection, faster response, and more effective countermeasures. “The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the necessity for robust public-private partnerships to respond rapidly to emerging public health threats. By harnessing the power of precision medicine, California is moving to the forefront of pandemic preparedness and prevention,” Gov. Newsom said in a release sent out by his office.
