Riverside County Supervisor John Benoit dies at 64 - Press-Enterprise

Monday, January 23, 2017

RELATED: Local lawmakers react to John Benoit's deathBenoit represented the Fourth District on the county Board of Supervisors. The district of more than 400,000 residents stretches from the Coachella Valley to Blythe and is geographically the largest supervisorial district – almost 5,000 square miles -- in Riverside County.A sizable portion of the district’s population is Latino, making Benoit’s ability to communicate in Spanish an asset. He learned Spanish through immersion programs in Mexico and Costa Rica.Benoit graduated from Notre Dame High School in Riverside as well as Riverside City College. He also earned a bachelor of science degree in public safety from Cal State Los Angeles and a master’s in public administration from Cal State San Bernardino. He also attended the FBI National Academy.Before embarking on a political career, Benoit spent 31 years in law enforcement, starting with the Corona Police Department before working for the California Highway Patrol.He worked patrols in Los Angeles, Sacramento and Bakersfield before settling in the Coachella Valley in 1988 after being promoted to commander of the CHP’s Indio Station. Benoit retired from the CHP in 2001.Benoit’s first elected office was as a board member of the Desert Sands Unified School District. In 2002, he ran for state Assembly as a Republican and served three terms in that chamber before being elected to the state Senate in 2008.While in Sacramento, Benoit was able to get 40 bills signed into law, according to the biography on his supervisorial website. Among them is “Aryanna’s Law,” which requires childcare centers to disclose health and safety violations.Unlike other state lawmakers, he skipped the routine of flying commercially, instead piloting his own private plane. At one point, Benoit was one of just two licensed pilots in the Legislature. Benoit, who earned his pilot’s license through flying lessons at Rubidoux’s Flabob Airport in the 1970s, often gave rides to

Plant your own corpse flower. Impress your friends - The Desert Sun

Many resemble raw flesh, hair and body orifices that lure the flies visually as well as by redolent scent of decay.The yellow giant stapelia thrives in the Coachella Valley where growing in porous ground beneath high shade trees. (Photo: Maureen Gilmer)Carrion flowers are grouped into the Esclepiaceae or milk weed family, and this is evidenced by the long silky fibers attached to most seeds of this group. But as succulents are adapted to the hot, dry African veldt, these are excellent plants for our desert too. Key is understanding that they are an understory species often beneath filtered shade of acacia trees in Africa. Thus in our low desert they are beautiful choices for the bright shade beneath palo verde and mesquite trees.The genus Stapelia has two very large species that make fine garden plants in both the low and high desert. They are large traveling succulents that all look the same when not in bloom, but once they flower in the heat of late summer, you can spot the difference immediately. For that reason this is the best time of year to buy them and to take cuttings because you know what flower you're getting.The best choice for outdoor garden is Stapelia gigantia, the big spreader that ranges all across southern Africa from Zimbabwe west to Namibia and south to the Cape. It's a bigger plant so you won't lose it in the yard. This is a big yellow flowered species with blossoms easily a foot across from point to point. The wide petals are ridged to resemble dehydrated wrinkled skin with lots of wiry hairs like those of so many herbivores.This is Stapelia gigantia all budded up to explode into bloom amidst late summer heat. (Photo: Maureen Gilmer)When a patch of these bloom you'll get dozens and dozens of flowers. Their cumulative pollinator-luring smell will be quite recognizable when you pass by. In Palm Springs there are almost always shiny green bottle flies on those flowers just hanging out by the small corona at the center where the scent originates. They think it is roadkill and are laying eggs around and into the corona while pollinating the flowers.There is a red flowered Stapeliad that may be a variation on the same species that thrives at Moorten Botanical Garden. That's where my summer observation of these bloo

San Andreas Fault is ready for deadly earthquake according to experts - Daily Mail

Monday, June 06, 2016

Such devastation could be brought about by a strong quake in just two minutes, striking in the Coachella Valley, for example, which could also shake areas where sediments trap waves, such as east Los Angeles.The damage caused by a similar strength quake was last seen in 1857, when an earthquake originating in Parkfield in Monterey County travelled south along the fault for 185 miles (300km), and then east from LA. img id="i-d3a823ddccfad6d5" src="" height="423" width="634" alt="A report by the US Geolo
