The Road Less Repaired Santa Anita’s Fall Meet Opens Friday By Susan Motander and Terry MilleR Six years ago after severe winter rains, Cal FEMA gave several grants to cities responsible for the maintenance of the road to Chantry Flats north into the foothills from Arcadia. Monrovia is responsible for a small segment of that road, but it has not yet been repaired. The stretch of road in question is where the road becomes a single lane due to the problem. Even with stop signs alerting drivers of the situation, the problem is that not many drivers pay attention to the stop sign at all. Our photographer was shooting the erosion at the site Monday and witnessed two cars traveling directly through the stop sign without so much as a pause. Vehicles approaching from the opposite direction had to swerve accordingly to miss the oncoming traffic. On a busy weekend, the traffic increases significantly, raising more concerns. Questions have been asked why repairs have been made to other areas of the road but not to the area Monrovia actually owns and maintains.

The Chantry Flat road is juristictionally part County of Los Angeles, part Arcadia and part Monrovia’s responsibility - the county is responsible for upgrades according to Mike Kaspar of Los Angeles County Public Works. City Manager Scott Ochoa said the explanation is basic, but not simple. The initial grant was insufficient to pay for the required repairs. The city council and staff felt that the use of general road repair funds was not justified under the circumstances. Additional funds were requested. Ochoa further explained that once additional FEMA funds became available engineers needed to come up with exact plans for the design. This was when the problems arose. “We are only responsible for a small elbow of the road, but it has a steep drop off,: Ochoa said. “It is less than half a mile in length; I think it is closer to 1/4 mile. At first, the engineers could not agree on what was required.”

Unzip Me, a four-time stakes winner over Santa Anita’s unique downhill turf course, will be solidly favored to annex the Grade III, $100,000 Senator Ken Maddy Stakes on Friday when live racing returns to Santa Anita with the 2011 Autumn Meet, which runs 24 days through Nov. 6. The Autumn Meet, which will feature racing on Thursdays through Sundays with the addition of Colum-

bus Day on Monday, Oct. 10, will be highlighted by a stakes roster that includes 13 graded stakes and a day of state-bred racing on Oct. 29, the California Cup. This year marks the 21st running of the Cal Cup which will include five stakes, headed by the $150,000 Cal Cup Classic at 1 1/8 miles. Saturday, Oct. 1 has been designated as Breeders’ Cup Challenge Day and will be highlighted by

four Grade I stakes events. This year’s Breeders’ Cup will be hosted by Churchill Downs on Nov. 4 & 5 while Santa Anita intersperses live racing into its simulcast of the two-day championships. Blind Luck, who has succeeded Zenyatta as America’s most compelling Thoroughbred attraction, will gear up for the Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic in Saturday’s Grade I, $250,000 Lady’s Secret at

Santa Anita. Unzip Me will face five opponents in Friday’s opening day feature for fillies and mares at 6 ½ furlongs on turf. The 5-year-old mare, coowned and bred by Harris Farms has become a paragon of consistency, finishing in the money in her last 15 starts, winning 10 of them. The defending champion in the Maddy, Unzip Me won

Charges Filed Against State Assemblyman Two Suspects in Pasadena Anthony Portantino’s Local and Capitol Staff to Barber’s Murder be Laid-Off for Six Weeks

This stretch of Chantry Flat road, owned by Monrovia, hasn’t been repaired for six years - Photo by Terry Miller

Anthony Portantino’s office is being forced to close and all the staff laidoff for six weeks beginning October 21 – Nov. 30. The punitive action by Assembly Speaker Perez is apparenently in retaliation for the state Assemblyman’s “no” vote on the budget. 11 employees and 2 interns are directly affected by this action and the state has advised those employees that they should apply

for unemployment insurance. The medical benefits will remain intact according to Wendy Gordon at Portantino’s Pasadena office. The initial warnings about the layoffs arrived in July. Assembly leaders have accused Portantino of being over budget and subsequently ordered his offices in both the district and

On September 23rd Pasadena Police filed charges against two suspects for the murder of King King a 43 year old Pasadena resident. King was found dead behind the businesses in the 900 block of E. Washington Blvd. Later this same day four individuals were detained and arrested for suspicion of murder. Upon further investigation it was determined that the murder occurred in conjunction with the robbery of Mr. King.

Today the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office filed Murder with special circumstances in the commission of Robbery against, Devon Westley Moore a 22 year old Los Angeles Resident and Sabrina King (No relation to the victim) an 18 year old Compton resident. Both are being held without bail. The District Attorney’s Office rejected the charges against the other individuals and they have been released.

I should not eat cookies. They contain sugar, fat, and calories. I don't need those things. My body can't handle those things. That is why I shouldn't eat cookies. Sometimes I do eat cookies--when they contain chocolate, chocolate chips or nuts. I love those things. My body can't resist those things. That is why I sometimes do eat cookies. One day, at my writing group, the treats included cookies. Now these cookies didn't just have chocolate chips. They had choc-

olate chunks. Did I have the will power? You bet I did. I told myself to skip the cookies. I ate crackers and cheese. I drank water. I resisted the cookies. I ate a sliced apple. I drank water. I resisted the cookies. I drank water. I had to go to the powder room. I sort of resisted the cookies. I decided to take just one cookie to my seat to have when I returned from the powder room. I picked the biggest and nicest and put it on a little plate and set it beside my book I set a glass of water beside it. I folded a napkin neatly on the other side of it. Now it really looked irresistible, this perfect cookie about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. The center was filled with chocolate chunks. They were very thick in the mid-

dle and thinned as they neared the edge of my perfect cookie. I looked at that cookie and smiled in anticipation. I picked it up again and smelled it. Ahhh. I tenderly laid it back on the little plate in the middle of its special setting. I went to the powder room, a bright and cheery room with flowered wallpaper, a bowl of potpourri and a basket of flowers on the counter. I didn't bother to admire them this day. I washed my hands and thought of my cookie. I had a real sensual experience as I thought of licking the melted chocolate from one finger at a time. I hurried back to my seat. There was my water and my napkin, but my perfect cookie was gone.

I glared at my neighbors, Diane and Bobbie. "Who ate my cookie?" Diane feigned innocence and said, "What cookie?" Bobbie's Catholic upbringing made her say, "There is an Angel sitting on your shoulder." I brushed that little bugger off and growled, "I'm going to get another cookie, even if it won't be the perfect cookie." As I stomped away Diane piped, "Oh here, if you're just going to get another one." She pulled my perfect cookie from its hiding place. "We were just trying to help you 'cause we love you," explained Bobbie. I was touched. Friends are special and wonderful. Buuuut, I dunno, a perfect Chocolate Chunk Cookie is hard to beat!

Temple City Unveils Updated Rosemead Blvd. Designs October 6 Updated designs to improve Rosemead Blvd. will be unveiled at an October 6 meeting hosted by the City of Temple City. The meeting takes place at Live Oak Park Community Center, 10144 Bogue St. Two sessions are planned: English at 7 p.m. and Chinese at 8 p.m. Child care will be provided. The presented sketches illustrate updated designs that transform Temple City’s segment of Rose-

Everyday is an open house:

mead Blvd. from a regional highway into a pedestrian friendly corridor. Planned improvements call for new sidewalks, signalized pedestrian crossings, street furniture, landscaped medians, and critical road and drainage improvements. The designs also call for a series of firsts for the city including solar powered lighting, world-class gateway monuments, public art installations and protected bike lanes – cutting edge cycle tracks that are

only used in a few places across the nation. All design components, otherwise known as the Rosemead Blvd. Enhancement Project, reflect feedback from a March 24 public workshop. “What we heard from the community is they love the idea of turning Rosemead Blvd. into a destination that is safe, attractive and a source of pride for Temple City,” said Mayor Pro Tem Vince Yu. “But the community is also con-

cerned about the mixing of cars and bicycles. I believe the updated designs with the protected bike lanes will address their concerns, and demonstrate the importance of community input.” Groundbreaking on the $17 million project begins next summer. The October 6 meeting will discuss the project’s preliminary construction and phasing schedule. For more information, call (626) 285-2171

Sacramento closed. They have refused to release detailed budget accounts that would shed light on how Assembly budgets are handled. Portantino has voed to man the Pasadena office himself . Here’s a timeline of events that led up to this situation: June 29 – CA legislature passes state budget. Portantino is the only Democrat to vote no. July 8 -- Assembly Rules sends letter to Portantino claiming he is $67,000 over budget and that unless he does something, his entire staff will be furloughed without pay Oct 21 – Nov. 30, 2011 July 11 – Portantino responds accusing Democratic Assembly leaders of punishing him for his NO vote on the budget and demands spending records be released to show Speaker Perez’ claims are false. (Office budgets for Assembly members cost taxpayers $146 million annually, which is allocated by the Rules Committee and controlled by Assembly Speaker Perez.) July 14 – Portantino files a formal Legislative Open Records Act (LORA) request to Assembly Rules and Speaker Perez requesting all Assembly member budget records, committee budget records, all expenditures and writings concerning budget allocations. July 28 – Assembly leaders respond to Portantino’s LORA request with formal denials citing confidentiality and saying: “ …those records are not

subject to mandatory disclosure.” Aug 5 – Sacramento Bee and LA Times file lawsuit requesting the release of all Assembly budget records challenging the Assembly’s refusal to release office budgets and spending. Aug 12 – Portantino bucks Perez and releases his legislative calendar to the press/public. Aug 15 – Portantino

levels of government in California, including the Governor. The bill calls for the elimination of the Legislative Open Records Act (LORA) and replaces it with the California Public Records Act which is used to disclose records by all statewide office holders and public agencies. Aug 26 – Assembly Rules Committee releases some of the data on of-

continues push for transparency in state government by introducing an amendment to Assembly House Rules calling for all financial records to be made public – immediately. Legislation is shelved by Assembly Rules Committee. Aug 25 – Portantino introduces AB 1129, which calls on the State Legislature to comply with the same public records standards imposed on all other

fice budgets.(see website – www.asm.ca.gov. Information is on bottom, left side.) Aug 29 – Stanford’s California Common Sense crunches the Assembly Rules data release and finds the data misleading and inconsistent. Portantino claims they “cooked the books”. Sep 12 – Assembly issues formal denial of LATimes/SacBee budget records lawsuit. Portantino criticizes Assembly lead-

ers for spending tax payer money fighting to keep Assembly spending records secret. In the meantime, recognizing that there are others in California worse off than the district office – Portantinos’ staff is hosting an Open House and food drive for Foothill Unity Center and Friends in Deed next Wednesday, October 5 from 4 to 7pm at their district office, 215 N. Marengo at the Walnut Plaza Lobby and Suite 115. “Recognizing that too many of our friends and neighbors throughout our communities are heavily impacted by food insecurity, we are asking the community to join us in contributing non-perishable food items to Foothill Unity Center and Friends in Deed at this event,” said Portantino. “It’s an immediate way for us to help them continue the wonderful work they do to combat hunger.” The staff is asking people to bring non-perishable food items such as peanut butter, tuna fish, canned chicken and other canned googs which have a long shelf life. The office will assist you in navigating state web sites and provide resources to obtain access to state agencies. “We’ll be making and serving lemonade and cookies – as the saying goes: “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” said Wendy Gordon.

Drive And Other Films Making Hyper-Masculinity Fashionable Again If there was a desire for films that portray the red-blooded American alpha male taking care of business his way, Hollywood has fulfilled it with films like this year’s Limitless, starring Bradley Cooper as a drug-addled corporate superman, and the recently released Drive, starring Ryan Gosling as a getaway-car driver who is maniacally cold and brutal with his enemies while being warm and compassionate to his friends. It is a Los Angeles story told through the lens of Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn, who borrows heavily from Michael Mann, with sprawling night scenes of the L.A. skyline, authen-

tic and gritty locations, sparse dialogue, and a soundtrack that reflects the melancholic isolation of the characters. In classic Clint Eastwood-Spaghetti Western fashion, Gosling’s character is a mysterious drifter with no name who works as a part-time movie stunt-man while moonlighting as a get-away driver-for-hire. Just when he meets and falls smitten with Irene (Carey Mulligan), a waitress and single mom, Irene’s husband, Standard, is released from prison and admits to Gosling that he owes money to the mob in exchange for protection while he was in jail. To keep Irene and her five-year old son safe,

Gosling agrees to be Standard’s get-away driver in a robbery. But when the job goes sour, it is Gosling himself who is put in the mob’s crosshairs, to which he responds with ultra-violence and bloodiness. The action sequences and car chases are spectacularly shot, and Refn utilizes the chemistry between Gosling and Mulligan to its fullest potential by doing something most directors never do, which is to allow brief moments of silence between the two actors, making the subtext palpable. And while the film might be more style than substance, it is nonetheless wholly entertaining.

Flora Abrahamian, M.D Joins Huntinton Medical Foundation

Huntington Medical Foundation announced that Flora Abrahamian, M.D., a highly trained specialist in allergy and immunology, will be joining its medical staff October 1. She will be located at the HMF office in Pasadena. Dr. Abrahamian received her medical degree from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Medicine after attaining her bachelor’s degree, magna cum laude, in biochemistry from Occidental College. She did her fellowship in allergy and immunology at the University of California, Irvine and her residency in internal medicine at Harbor-UCLA MedicalCenter. Prior to joining Hun-

tington Medical Foundation, Dr. Abrahamian was an associate physician in the department of allergy and clinical immunology for Kaiser Permanente in Downey. There she treated both adults and children for common disorders such as allergic rhinitis, asthma, eczema and food allergies. She also diagnosed and treated more complex conditions like hereditary angioedema (a rare but serious problem with the immune system) and common variable immunodeficiency (a disorder of the immune system). “There are many misconceptions about allergies, and I love answering patients’ questions and easing their concerns,” she says. “I believe it is very important to educate patients about prevention measures.” An allergy is a specific reaction to a normally harmless substance such as pollens, dust particles, mold, food, latex rubber, insect venom or medicines. Dr. Abrahamian provides her patients advice on ways to avoid the allergen,

Gala for 10th Anniversary of Arcadia Historical Museum October 9th Draws Community Support Pumpkin colored envelopes have been arriving all around town with colorful invitations to the 10th anniversary of the city’s outstanding Historical Museum, hosted by the Museum’s Foundation. The public is invited. Multi-time former First Lady Ruth Gilb, chair of event, promises a gourmet dinner at the Community Center with a pre-dinner wine, champagne and hors d’oeuvres reception in the museum. Curator Dana Dunn will offer special exhibits for guests to enjoy. Adding to the evening will be the showing of the exciting proposed plans for a new mid-sized education cen-

ter. The addition will allow enhancement of educational and cultural opportunities. At present, there is very little space for school field trips, expanded Scout programs, lectures, visiting artists and fund-raising. The Foundation has felt it is incumbent of them to make these facilities available. The public is invited to become a part of history and become a founding partner. For information about the dinner or education center, call (626) 355-6945, or mail to Arcadia Historical Museum Foundation, P.O. Box 661514, Arcadia, CA 91066.

and president of Methodist Hospital farewell gigs. After 20 years of above and beyond exemplary leadership, Dennis and his partner (wife), Carolyn, packed up their gear and bought a spread in Prescott, Arizona, high among the pine trees. The last farewell was held on the terrace at the Athenaenum at Cal Tech Sunday evening, September 18th. The attitude adjustment hour was enjoyed as was the delicious summer buffet. Then came the toasting and roasting! There were friends, colleagues, doctors, his family, and a video produced by his wife, Carolyn, all making a patchwork of emotional, funny and nostalgic memories.

Carolyn and Dennis Lee make farewell remarks at Arcadia Rotary Club September 16th. Dennis just retired from Methodist Hospital as CEO and president.

The Lees were a special couple and will not easily be replaced.

The Social Whirl Church pastors, AHS Students Join ‘One Book' October 2 Panels discussions and dramatizations of local novelist's book Church officials and more than a dozen Arcadia High School students will participate in panel discussions with local author C.B. Shiepe and present dramatic readings/interpretations of his top-selling novel Cliff Falls at 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 2. The second annual Arcadia’s Best Foundation program, “One Community, One Book” in Jordan/Fellowship Hall of the Church of the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, 400 W. Duarte Rd., Arcadia, is free and open to all. Good Shepherd Pastor, the Rev. Dr. Philip Bertolo Wood, and Asso-

ciate Pastor Rev. Stephen. Wilson, along with AHS freshman Emily Zheng, are among the panelists scheduled to discuss the book’s themes of mega-church religion and the pressures on young people to meet expectations in all aspects of life. The audience will be encouraged to participate as they would in a more intimate book club. A dozen AHS students in Arcadia High School Theatre Director Steven Volpe’s intermediate drama class will present a dramatic reading of three short scenes from the novel that is the all-time best-selling self-published book at

Vroman’s Book Store. In an interesting twist, three female teenage students will play the male roles of a nationally-known church pastor and his son, and the primary character in the story, a 1980s child actor called Clay. Author Shiepe, the brother of Arcadia’s Baldwin-Stocker Elementary School teacher Bayne Meza, will be interviewed and answer questions from the audience, as well as read some passages. Free refreshments will be provided by Togo’s sandwich shop in Arcadia.

A Noise Within Close to Raising the Curtain in Pasadena Open House on Tap for Oct 23, 1-4 A Noise Within (ANW), the acclaimed classical repertory theatre company, rolls out the red carpet for the community at large when it hosts a free interactive Open House to introduce the general public to its unique artistry and dazzling permanent new home, a 33,000 squarefoot, state-of-the-art venue in Pasadena, on Sunday, October 23, 2011, 1 to 4 pm. “This is the first public event of any kind in our new home,” say ANW Founders/Artistic Directors Julia Rodriguez-Elliott and Geoff Elliott. “We have had amazing support from the community for A Noise Within’s new theatre, and we’re delighted to open our doors so our friends and neighbors from across the Southland can see this incredible new home for the classics and learn more about our work.” The Open House, which helps kick off A Noise Within’s milestone 2011-12 Season and 20th Anniversary, features tours of the facility, readings and presentations by the company's resident artists spotlighting the classical masterworks being performed during the season, activities for youngsters and much more. The event reflects ANW's commitment to bringing the classics to the broadest possible audience and to expanding the deep community roots sown during its 19 years in Glendale.

The new theatre, the result of a $13.5 million capital campaign, features substantially more space than the company's Glendale venue, allowing A Noise Within to meet demand for tickets by allowing annual audience capacity to increase from 25,000 to 50,000 people. The company's highly regarded education program

will be able to double to 20,000 the number of students served each year. Together, this allows A Noise Within to expand its role as a leader in the presentation and preservation of classical theatre. The venue is located in the former Stuart Pharmaceutical building, a historic, mid-century modern masterpiece designed by celebrated architect Edward Durell Stone, known for landmark buildings around the country including the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, and Radio City Music Hall in New York. Constructed in the mid1950s, the Stuart Pharmaceutical building was listed

on the National Register in 1998 and features a striking landscape garden designed by Thomas Church. The completely new three-story theatre – which retains the building's original façade -- features support facilities, offices, rehearsal space, a classroom, considerable storage for costumes, props and scenery and large restrooms. There is plentiful, convenient, free parking in the adjacent Gold Line's Sierra Madre Villa Metro parking structure. A Noise Within (ANW) is the only yearround classical repertory company in Southern California and one of only a handful in the entire country dedicated solely to producing classical dramatic literature in the repertory tradition of rotating productions with a resident company of professional artists. A NOISE WITHIN is located on the corner of Foothill Boulevard and Sierra Madre Villa Avenue at 3352 East Foothill Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91107. Free self parking is located in the Sierra Madre Villa Metro parking structure, with entrances on northbound Sierra Madre Villa Avenue or North Halsted Street. The Open House is free, but reservations are required and may be made by calling (626) 356-3127. www. ANoiseWithin.org.

Chantry Flat Road Repairs in Monrovia's Jurisdiction Finally Going out for Bid Continued from page 1 According to Ochoa, getting the city engineers and those from FEMA together, they were recently able to work out the exact specifics. “We expect this to go out to bid within the next few weeks and that the work should begin and be completed prior to the rainy season this year,” Ochoa said. We caught up with Monrovia Glen Owens en route to his cabin Monday who said he feels 6 years is a great deal of time to wait for repairs to begin. He told the Monrovia Weekly, that 15 years ago - virtually in the same spot - a similar thing happened with severe and hreavy rainfall causing major erosion and work to repair the damage started within one week. The project was completed in about a week, according to Owens. Monrovia resident Owens, who knows the area well, said the road which was built in 1936 has seen numerous repair projects done over the years but he is particularly frustrated by this delay on this Monrovia stretch of road. Owens is also was perplexed by the fact that people who park

02517 x 6.5" 4C

their cars on that Monrovia owned land have be issued citations by the Forest Service for not having an “Adventure Pass”. “It’s Monrovia property,” Owens said. “How can this happen?” he asked. Owens also said he found it hard to phathom how the city has not put this project out to bit before. The road that leads to the popular hiking and campgrounds is closed at sundown and open again at sunrise but during the day hundreds of cyclists, cars and SUVs traverse the roads to get away from the city and its related stresses. The police and fire deptartments are all too familiar with accidents on the road often due to miscalculations around the corners and excessive speed. Both the Mayor and city public works director were out of town and not available for comment on this story and we will update our readers as more information becomes available about this long overdue repair project. Phone calls were also placed to the Forest Service and were not immediately returned.

David Crabtree Recently retired, after 34 years in public education, I hope to use my skills and experience to contribute to my community. I have taught chemistry, physics, algebra, physical education as well as computer concepts and applications. I served as principal of a middle school for 8 years and principal of an elementary school for 3 years. I have a unique understanding of the public school system. My leadership style is collaborative and situational. I look to the people directly affected by my decisions in order to serve their needs effectively. My focus will include finding new sources of income, implementing community mentoring, promoting academic and athletic competitions, increasing student access to current technology, preserving fine arts, integrating technical and trade skills into the curriculum, and establishing an international student exchange program.

I expect that together we will prepare the students to confidently meet the challenges of the future. Ed Gilliland Strong, knowledgeable leadership is critical for Monrovia Schools in these times of financial volatility and increasing State mandates. It’s a privilege to be a part of the leadership that has resulted in so much improvement and keeps our schools on this complex and powerful path to greatness. We must continue our progress toward “World Class Schools for World Class Students”. As a long term resident, I love Monrovia, its people, and the people of the unincorporated area served by our School District. My children attended Monrovia Schools, and I have been working to make them better for over 15 years; serving on PTA and school site committees, booster clubs, district committees and now the School Board. Because

my focus is our youth, I have no aspirations for other political offices. If reelected, I will continue to work hard for the next four years to insure our schools are the best. Rob Hammond I believe strong schools are the backbone of the community. Our schools need to offer learning opportunities that meet the growing demands of a changing world. During the 13 years Rob served the community as mayor and councilmember, he worked tirelessly making life better for our students. - Founded Monrovia Reads -Started YES (Youth Employment Services) to provide paid summer internships for Monrovia youth, -Spearheaded the creation of string music classes.

Holly Avenue PTA Fundraiser Going On Now The Holly Avenue Elementary School Parent Teacher Association is currently looking for donations to fund its activities for the 2011-2012 school year. The PTA has previously organized and sponsored activities and educational programs like Walk Through History, Student Assemblies, Literacy Promotion Programs, Accelerated Reader, Red Ribbon Week, and Character Counts. These programs have not only enhanced the educational experience of the students, but

have also been fun. The PTA funds these programs as well. During the current economic climate, with budget cuts to the schools, this funding is critical. Without it, these activities won’t take place. This year, the Holly Avenue PTA is asking for monetary donations to raise funds for these activities. These donations will also supplement school library operations, reimburse teachers for some classroom supplies, and contribute toward a gift to the school at year

Sunday, September 18: Between Saturday, September 17th at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday, September 18th at 6:45 a.m., a residential burglary occurred in the 2400 block of Doolittle Avenue. Suspect(s) entered the residence through an unlocked garage door and stole vehicle keys, paperwork, and a vacuum. At about 11:21 a.m., officers responded to the 500 block of Santa Rosa Road regarding a suspicious vehicle. Contact was made with the 21-year-old White male driver, and it was determined he was under the influence of alcohol. The male was booked at the Arcadia City Jail for D.U.I. Monday, September 19: At approximately 5:30 a.m., officers responded to the Arcadia Methodist Hospital in reference to a stabbing victim. While walking in front of the First Cabin Bar, 46 East Huntington Drive, the male victim was confronted by two suspects who asked for a cigarette. When the victim did not comply, he was stabbed by a suspect described as a White male in his mid-twenties, 5’-09”, with a medium build, and armed with a knife. The second suspect was described as a Black male, with short dread locks, and dark clothing. The victim suffered a laceration to his arm and ran from the scene. The incident was reported to have occurred shortly after 5:00 a.m. Between 8:15 a.m. and 11:15 a.m., a residential burglary occurred in the

Tuesday, September 20: Around 8:47 p.m., units were dispatched to the 1100 block of Encanto Drive regarding suspicious circumstances. The resident advised that while at home, she heard a knock at her door, followed by the voice of what sounded like a young female saying, “This is the Mount View Water Company.” The resident did not open her door. She then heard the female walk away. The resident feels this may have been an attempt to enter the residence under false pretenses. Between Monday, September 19th at 4:00 p.m., and Tuesday September 20th at 5:00 p.m., the mailboxes in the 11000 block of Clark Street were vandalized. Suspect(s) pried open the back cover of the metal structure which encases multiple mailboxes, however, it is unknown if there was any loss. Wednesday, September 21: At about 3:01 p.m., a traffic stop was conducted at Camino Real Avenue and Santa Anita Avenue for tinted windows. A records check of the 21-yearold Hispanic male driver revealed an outstanding misdemeanor warrant, for which he was arrested. Shortly before 6:00 p.m., loss prevention personnel from H&M at the Westfield Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin

Avenue, advised they had detained a male juvenile for theft. The suspect put on a jacket, which was on display, and left the store without making payment. Through investigation, it was determined that the suspect had come into the store with the intent to steal. The 17-year-old Asian male was placed under arrest for commercial burglary. Thursday, September 22: Shortly before 9:00 p.m., officers responded to the 00 block of West Live Oak Avenue regarding a theft. The victim advised he heard a noise in the parking lot and saw two suspects running. The first suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 30 to 40 years old, 5’05”, 180 lbs., wearing a flannel jacket. The second suspect was also described as a Hispanic male, 30 to 40 years old. While running away, the suspects dropped a bag which contained a catalytic converter that had been removed from the victim’s vehicle. A second victim at the location also reported the theft of a catalytic converter. At about 11:08 p.m., an auto burglary occurred in the parking lot of the Westfield Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue.

Lives Remembered William “Bill” Sullivan, Sr. 1929-2011 Long time Sierra Madre resident, business owner and philanthropist William “Bill” Sullivan, Sr., passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2011 at the age of 82. Born in Chicago on July 7, 1929, Bill served in the Army during the Korean War. He moved, along with his wife and three children then aged 7, 6 and 4, to Sierra Madre in 1963 and opened The Bottle Shop liquor store, which he owned until 1984 when he sold it, though it remains in the family. Following that, Bill and his wife Marie constructed and own Sierra Madre Self Storage on Montecito Ave. In addition to running his businesses, Bill was active in the local business community and service organizations, serving on the Board of Directors of the Sierra Madre Chamber of Commerce and the Sierra Madre Community Hospital. He also served on the Bank of America Achievement Award Board and was a recipient of the “Recognition of Service” award from the American National Red Cross. He was a past president of the Kiwanis Club of Sierra Madre and Sierra Madre Little League. One of Bill’s lasting legacies is the Sierra Madre City College, a philanthrop-

ic organization which each year is one of the first entries in the Sierra Madre’s Fourth of July parade, represented by a marching band and a float which is one of the most anticipated entries in the parade, because most years it is an irreverent look back at something that is or has been a subject of topical discussion

in the community. Bill and the late Hugh Warden were two of the driving forces behind the City College, and for the last several years, Bill has driven or been driven in the SMCC’s “president’s” vehicle in the parade. Each year the SMCC raises money to put back into the community. Over the years, the City College has donated to the City’s ambulance fund, and to Sierra Madre Search and Rescue. They donated a flagpole to St. Rita’s School,

and installed a concrete art patio for the Kindergarten students at Sierra Madre School. They’ve installed lighting at Sierra Vista and Mountain Trail parks, funded a patio on the east side of City Hall and the south side of the Senior Center. With Kiwanis, they helped fund the pergola area in Memorial Park, and they are also responsible for the covered barbecue area in Sierra Vista Park (a revenue generator for the City). They’ve also installed barbecue sets in Memorial and Sierra Vista Parks. Bill also took pride in being cantankerous and in his efforts to keep City Hall honest. Mr. Sullivan is survived by his wife of fifty-six years, Marie, and three children, his daughter Kathy (Paul) Copeland, and two sons, Bill, Jr. (Patty) and Dan Sullivan. He also leaves behind six grandchildren, Melissa, Michael, Jay, Jeff, Tracy and Sarah. His brother Frank Sullivan and his sister, Betty Davis, predeceased him. A memorial service was held at St. Rita Catholic Church, 318 N. Baldwin Ave. in Sierra Madre, on Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2011 at 10am, followed immediately by a reception at O’Malley Hall, also at St. Rita.
