This is Bank of Southern California's second common stock offering in two years, raising over $14 million. Nathan Rogge, President and CEO of Bank of Southern California commented, "This new investment represents an endorsement of the Company's direction and confidence in the bank's management by a very well regarded investment firm focused on the community banking industry." 'Over the past several years, the Bank has experienced strong organic growth and has completed several acquisitions. The additional capital will help continue to fund organic growth and will provide the bank the ability to act on strategic acquisition opportunities. It also increases the bank's legal lending limit, which allows it to meet the growing needs of its clients. As part of the transaction, David J. Volk, a principal of Castle Creek, will join the Bank's Board of Directors. Mr. Volk joined Castle Creek in 2005. Prior to joining the investment firm, he worked for a variety of well know companies providing merger & acquisition, financing advisory, corporate restructuring, and capital raising services to small and middle market companies.

' ylie, DO Candy Watts, Family Nurse Practitioner Randy Fedorchuk MD, Pain Management Borrego Dental Services 1st Friday of every month Winter night skies (January and February) in Julian can be very unpredictable (i.e., clouds, fog and winds) and, of course, they can also be very cold. Still, you should bundle up, grab your binoculars or small telescope and go out and observe Some of the spectacular deep-sky objects visible in January and February. The best time to observe deep-sky objects (other than the Moon) in January will be from January 19th to January 30th. The Moon always rises near 12:00 am on the night of the last quarter Moon (January 19th) and the sky will be darkest around the night of the New Moon (January 27th). Let's start with an open cluster. Open clusters are compact collections of several dozen to hundreds of stars, each within our own Milky Way galaxy. The individual stars within each open cluster are bound to each other by gravity. I discussed three open clusters, the Double Cluster in the constellation Perseus and the Pleiades in the constellation Taurus, in my last column in November 2016, and all three of these clusters are still visible near the zenith in January. This January let's move on to the Hyades - an open cluster in the constellation Taurus that is almost too large to seen in a single field of view in binoculars. The Hyades is the V-shaped cluster of approximately four hundred stars at the very tip of Taurus. The cluster ends in the bright orange-red star Aldebaran, which is unrelated to the Hyades cluster. The Hyades are the closest open cluster to Earth at 150 light years away. No observation of the Winter skies would be complete without stopping at the Great Orion Nebula (Messier 42) in the constellation Orion. This nebula is probably the best-known deep-sky object. The constellation Orion lies relatively low in the southeast in January -- its northeast corner is the bright red super-giant star Betelgeuse and its southwest corner is the blue-white super-giant star Rigel. The three bright stars known as Orion's Belt are near the middle of this constellation. In the middle of a line of stars extending just below Orion's Belt is the Orion Nebula. It is a star factory known as an emission nebula. Like all emission nebulas, the Orion Nebula glows because the newly born stars are ionizing the surrounding hydrogen gas. In binoculars, you will not see its distinctive red color but it will appear very bright and shaped like bat wings. If you have a small telescope you should observe the star Almach (Gamma Andromedae) in the constellation Andromeda. Almach is one of the finest double stars in our northern skies with one star of this telescopic double appearing topaz-yellow and the other appearing sapphire-blue. Spectroscopic research has shown that Almach is really four stars. Another 'must-see' star is Sirius, the Dog Star. Sirius is the brightest star in the sky. It is in the constellation Canis Major which is located very close to the southeast horizon in January. Sirius is so brilliafit that it often scintillates -- appears to be sending out multi-colored rays and sparks. The planet Venus will be putting on quite a show in January as it reaches its greatest angle from the Sun relative to Earth (elongation) on January 12th. If you look in the southwest one hour after sunset on the night of January 12th, you will see Venus shining brighter than anything around it. Approximately ten degrees (the width of your fist held at arm's length) to the upper left of Venus you will see orange-red Mars. Both planets spend the first half of January in the constellation Aquarius and the second half of January in the constellation Pisces. The planet Neptune is also very close to Venus and Mars during the month and you can see Neptune just south of Venus (1/2 degree) on January 12th. You will need to use binoculars to observe Neptune. Jupiter rises around 1:00 am on January 1st and two hours earlier by January 31st. Saturn rises about 90 minutes before sunrise on January 1st and three hours before sunrise on January 31st. If you are interested in asteroids, Vesta (one of the largest objects in the main asteroid belt) will reach peak visibility on January 17th. You can refer to any good astronomy website for detailed directions on where to observe Vesta during the month.

His expertise and guidance in mergers and acquisitions, as well as his extensive history with other community bank investments will help contribute to our continued growth and future success," concluded Rogge.

Just a few months ago I stood in the corral at the ranch with my Dad and picked out a steer for next year. It made me think of all the experiences I had in my first year in 4-H. Of course the Beef project is a lot of work and a large time commitment. My sister, Rowlynda, was my Beef leader, and my Mom and Dad supported me and helped along the way. After working with my steer, Patrick, all year, took him to the Ramona Junior Fair. There he got a blue ribbon. participated in Market Class, Showmanship, and Bred and Fed. The next step was the auction. I was very lucky to have buyers support me at the fair. I would like to thank everyone who came to see my steer, and those whom bided on my steer. I want to give my very sincere thanks to Katy Moretti and Eagle Peak Escrow who purchased half of my calf. I also want to give my very sincere thanks to Tina Plunkett; The Plunkett Family, and Sunshine Hair Design and Day Spa who purchased the other half of my calf. I sat with my parents and sister after the auction and my family told me how year after year the same community members come out and support local kids in agriculture. Without this support 4-H projects would not be possible. Buyers from all.over the San Diego Backcountry including Julian, Santa Ysabel, Ramona, and Escondido come out year after year and generously aide kids in starting new agricultural projects and beginning their college funds. On behalf of the Julian / Santa Ysabel 4 - H Club I would like to sincerely thank all of the community members who come out to the auction and bid on animals, buy animals, and give extra contributions to 4-H members. I would also like to thank all the adults who make the Ramona Fair possible and volunteer on the Fair Board. I would like to thank all of the leaders and volunteers at the Julian / Santa Ysabel 4-H that enable kids to have projects and to show. Lastly I would like to thank my family and friends who gave me so much support and help along the way. 4-H has taught me so much already. Not only did I learn a lot about the Beef industry but also responsibility, stewardship, costs and profits, showmanship, and of course there were a few lessons in patience. Thank you again to my buyers this year and all community members who support local agriculture.
