Life on the Rural Side With Jessica Scofield The Myth of Winter My favorite thing about Winter on Catalina Island is that it doesn't exist. Here it is, early February, and I can go outside at 7 a.m., wearing sandals and shorts, and be perfectly comfortable. And not because I'm accustomed to freezing winters and have built up tolerance, but because at 7 a.m. it's 60 degrees. "Winter" here could more appropriately be called "the sometimes- rainy season." Even dur- ing the rainy months, I think sunny days out- number cloudy ones. But still, the winter rains bring beauty and life. By January, colorful blooms abound in town, flowering vines overtake everything along the interior roads, and green grass carpets the hills. Jessica Scofield Columnist When the calendar proclaims the advent of Spring, the beauty of the flora has already begun to fade. January and February are the loveliest months, in my opinion. We do have an occasional win- ter storm, which makes the island feel more like the mainland. At the beginning of the month, for instance, we received some rain and had two days of gusty wind with tem- peratures in the 40s. But within the week the mercury returned to the mid-60s. I spent my 20s liv- ing in Provo, Utah. Utah receives several feet of snow every year. It was not uncom- mon to walk out of the house and feel my nasal passages literally freeze. In Provo, some people resume wearing flip-flops and shorts in March when the temperatures Since moving here I have never had to scrape ice off my windshield. finally struggle back into the 40s. I now consider it really cold when the temperature dips down into the 40s. This is my second winter in Two Harbors. Since moving here I have never had to scrape ice off my windshield. Not even once. I've never worn my winter coat here. And I've certainly never had my nostrils freeze! "Winter" on Catalina is really nice. Jessica Scofield lives in Two Harbors with her husband and son. They family moved to Catalina from Lancaster, which is in northern Los Angeles County. She has a bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University (in Provo, Utah). She double majored in 1. Psychology and 2. Home and Family Life. She says she loves her current job as a stay-at-home mom. LEGALS LEGALS LEGALS House Calls Plumbing, 3061 Charlemagne Ave., Long Beach, CA 90808.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should under- stand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for pay- ing off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if appli- cable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 848-9272 or visit this Internet Web site www. elitepostandpub.com, using the file number assigned to this case 15-33510. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
