On March 24, 2012 at 11:04 p.m., Pasadena Police Officers responded to a call of an armed robbery that just occurred at Summit Avenue and Orange Grove Blvd. The victim allegedly followed two male suspects while calling the police on his cell phone and providing di-

rection of travel and description of the suspects saying they had a gun. Two officers arrived in the area and observed one suspect running near Fair Oaks Avenue and Orange Grove Blvd. The officers pursued the suspect north on Sun-

set Avenue from Orange Grove Blvd. and during their attempt to detain him, an Officer Involved Shooting occurred. The suspect, whose identity was initially unknown, was transported to local area hospital where he succumbed to his wounds. McDade and the teen

Upon being notified of her selection, Ann was literally speechless then uttered, "Oh my God!" several times. Recently, Ann was given a surprise opportunity by friends to ride on the Kiwanis float of the 'Other Parade' and said she was every bit as floored when Doo Dah came calling. "This is a wonderful way to celebrate as I wind down my career!" she said. "Our city considers itself artistically rich, and Doo Dah proves that the arts don't

Community College Chancellor Speaks at Townhall Meeting

American Legion Post 280 will Host Queen Event 2011’s Doo Dah Parade Queen was the delightful Rosalind Schoen who will be giving up her crown to a new queen this Sunday once the judges have made their final decision at The American Legion Post 280 on Vindeo this Sunday evening. The young royal Schoen wooed over 30 judges last year by trans-

Since then she has led marchers as a flower child, a motorcycle mama, baby in a giant high chair, Dorothy of the Wizard of Oz, captain of industry, and Elvis. Ann would never know how she would be costumed until just minutes before the parade rolled.

There is a writer whose column I read quite regularly. I don't know him personally but I know approximately how old he is. You see, he confessed in his column that he has become consciously aware that he has knee joints and he has discovered arthritis strength aspirin. I can relate to that. I was out walking the other day and came to a rather high curb. My mind said, "Nothing to it." My knee yelped, "Oh yeah! Easy for

up. Adults can use them to kneel on to pray for strength to face the challenges of being grown up. Then comes the age of awareness. It doesn't really come suddenly. It just seems that way. Somewhere mid-to late-50s, maybe 60-ish, our knees begin to talk to us in their own way. They snap. They crack. They groan. Sometimes they display outright rebellion as we try to bend them. They bring a new friend into our lives as we grow intimate with Ben Gay. They are now playing a conscious, dominant role in our lives. Just watch it, knees. Don't get too sassy. With modern technology, you know, YOU CAN BE REPLACED.

you to say." This set me to thinking about what useful creatures our knees are. As children, Daddy's knees are great for bouncing and riding horsey on. Mommy's are wonderful for hiding behind when other adults want to tell us how cute we are and how big we're getting. Our own come in handy for falling on. They are closer to the ground than our heads and not quite as much ouch. A grandparent's knee can be a wonderful thing to sit beside while listening to stories, to lay our head on and feel the love passing through on its trip from heart to heart. As teens, knees serve us well as knockers and tremblers when we face the challenges of growing

Jessica Kitterman had no idea how September 11, 1997, would change her life forever. “I was pinned by a car crushing my legs with my own car door. It happened so quickly. In an instant my life was changed at the age of 26. My injury to both legs was so severe that they did not think that I would be able to keep my legs. The following 24/48 hours would prove critical as the swelling peaked. Through God’s grace, the swelling slowly went down and my legs were spared”, said Jessica. It would take Jessica many years of therapy for recovery to begin. “Doing the simple things in life

such as walking, driving, and even carrying our first child was such a challenge; running seemed impossible. This was hard to accept; I was once a runner and top performer on my high school track team. I had a passion for running and enjoyed the drive and performance achieved. Through my healing and recovery, I knew some day it would be possible again; through God all things are possible” commented Jessica. Jessica never gave up her desire to run in the 15 years since the accident happened. In October 2011 she heard about the Snail’s Pace Running

Academy and hoped this would help get back into running. “I joined the running academy and they taught me great techniques on proper warm up, running posture and cool down. Most of all, they gave me hope that it would be possible to run again after all these years. With the help of my coach, team and family I was able to run my first 5k since the accident. I didn’t finish first or with a top performing time, but, I finished! I ran the entire course at my own pace. Thank you to everyone at A Snail’s Pace for believing with me that it was possible”, commented Jessica.

Why I’m NOT Voting for Chris Koerber (The Condensed Version) Years ago I was a member of the Residents for the Preservation of Sierra Madre (RPSM). We were a grassroots organization of roughly 1400 like-minded, but distinctly unique individuals, one of whom was Chris Koerber. We united to prevent a 650-student high school from being built in the hillsides of One Carter. Our reasons ran the gamut from A-Z. The school was Maranatha, the developer and our opposition, was Greg Galletly of the Glendale firm Dorn-Platz. He was aided in his chicanery by, what I referred to as his “all-girl band.” The band members were; Kathy Teegarden, also of Dorn-Platz; attorney Elizabeth Watson, whose firm served several lawsuits against our city; and real estate agent Sandy Saraganian. Armed with exhaustive

research by our members we attended Tree Commission meetings, Cultural Heritage meetings, Planning Commission meetings and City Council meetings. With hard work and overall tenacity, we were successful in our quest. David brought Goliath down! Fast forward to the present...I got a call from a reliable and trusted source who shared two things about council candidate Chris Koerber. First, she said he was a member of the Tea Party. The thought that he could be a member of such a bigoted organization really surprised me however, that news totally paled in comparison to what she told me next. She said that Koerber’s campaign manager was none other than Sandy Saraganian! I couldn’t imagine anyone in the RPSM group

aligning themselves with anyone even remotely connected to Greg Galletly and Dorn-Platz. I sent Chris an email saying, “Say it ain’t so...” and promptly received a phone call from him. I asked him why, in spite of RPSM’s history with her, he could choose Sandy Saraganian as his campaign manager. He said that he needed her to help him understand the Skilled Nursing Facility paperwork. (Geppetto, tell Pinocchio to move over because company is coming!) His answer, in addition to failing the litmus test, shows that Koerber is capable of using extremely poor judgment. Do we want someone like that representing the citizens of Sierra Madre? I certainly don’t... Pat Birdsall Sierra Madre

California Home Sales Post Higher in February; Inventory Remains Low According to the Arcadia Association of REALTORS® recent improvements in the overall economy, combined with extremely low interest rates lifted California home sales from both the prior month and year in February. The median price dipped from January but is beginning to show signs of stabilization. Information was gathered from data from the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.). “While the median home price dipped in February, the year-over-year decline was the smallest recorded since December 2010,” said A.A.R. 2012 President Ryan Asao. “This may be a signal of a possible stabilization in home prices, which should bode well for prospective buyers who have been on the sidelines waiting for prices to level out and may entice them to jump into the market.” Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 528,010 in February, according to information collected by C.A.R. from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. February’s sales were up 2.1 percent from January’s revised

pace of 517,120 and up 5.5 percent from the revised 500,480 sales pace recorded in February 2011. The statewide sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2012 if sales maintained the February pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales. “February sales posted a stronger than usual performance with sales in major metropolitan areas such as Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, and San Francisco all logging doubledigit gains from the previous year,” said C.A.R. Vice President and Chief Economist Leslie Appleton-Young. “Recent encouraging signs in the GDP, employment picture, and consumer confidence suggest that a growing economy is in the making. All this, combined with continued-low mortgage rates, lays out a good foundation for the housing market to continue to grow as we enter the spring home buying season.” The statewide median price of an existing, single-family detached home dipped 0.6 percent to $266,660 in February from January’s $268,280 median price. The median price

was down 1.7 percent from the revised $271,370 median price recorded in February 2011. Other key facts of C.A.R.’s February 2012 resale housing report include: California’s housing inventory declined in February, with the Unsold Inventory Index for existing, single-family detached homes decreasing to 5.3 months in February, down from a revised 5.7 months in January and down from the 7.5-month supply in February 2011. The index indicates the number of months needed to deplete the supply of homes on the market at the current sales rate. Interest rates fell to record lows again in February. Thirty-year fixed-mortgage interest rates averaged 3.89 percent during February 2012, down from 4.95 percent in February 2011, according to Freddie Mac. Adjustable-mortgage interest rates averaged 2.78 percent in February 2012, compared with 3.35 percent in February 2011. The median number of days it took to sell a singlefamily home fell to 58.9 days in February 2012 and was down from a revised 64.7 days for the same period a year ago.

El Monte Volunteers Plant Garden Around Statue of Liberty Landmark

-Courtesy Photo

In celebration of El Monte’s Centennial, El Monte City Council member Norma Macias, the San Gabriel Valley Conservation Corps and a group of dedicated volunteers created the Centennial Liberty Garden Project, planting a colorful garden at the base of the landmark Statue of Liberty by the front steps of City Hall. With the site work completed and the soil graded and prepared for the installation of a colorful planting palette, the volunteers, joined by Macias, Mayor Andre Quintero and the City Council, planted 60 red, yellow and white rose bushes, Japanese boxwood shrubs and two purple leaf plumb trees. “Planting this beautiful garden was a great way to bring our community together as we celebrate our City’s Centennial anniversary,” said Council Member Macias, who designed the garden’s layout and planting palette. “Gardens enhance the quality of life and increase the sense of commu-

nity by building community spirit and pride.” Besides grading and preparing the soil, the site work also included a new irrigation system and the installation of new landscape lighting and mow strips. Council Member Macias, who spearheaded this project, used the development of the garden as an opportunity to give back to her community during this Centennial year. Born and raised in El Monte, Macias attended local public schools, Rio Hondo Community College and received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Cal State Los Angeles. She went on to obtain a Master’s Degree in Architecture from The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Macias has more than10 years of experience working in architecture both in the private and public sector. “I’m really proud of this effort and it’s an opportunity for me to use my background as an architect to help beautify City Hall, while bringing the community together,”

Macias said. “This really is in the spirit of the El Monte community – we work together to get things done.” The Council Member also thanked the volunteers from the El Monte-based San Gabriel Valley Conservation Corps for their work and the generous donation of Coiner Nursery. Coiner donated 92 rose bushes – a combination of Home Run (red), Iceberg (white) and Sunshine Daydream (yellow) – 81 gallons of Japanese boxwood, and 34 5-gallon containers of the popular shrub, and two purple leaf plumb trees. The Centennial Liberty Garden Project is among the many events that are being held this year to commemorate El Monte’s 100th anniversary during the City’s yearlong Centennial Celebration. Officially incorporated in 1912, the City is celebrating its 100-year anniversary until November with various festivities and events. The City kicked off the celebration November 5, 2011, with its annual Children’s Day Parade and Festival.

Public Safety Bill Passes Key Committee AB 1527 Bans “Open Carry” of Long Guns Assemblymember Anthony Portantino’s public safety measure to expand on last year’s ban on openly carried handguns, has passed the Assembly Public Safety Committee on a vote of 4 to 2. AB 1527 would outlaw the “open carry” of unloaded long guns – such as rifles or shotguns – on Main Street, California. Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) introduced the legislation at the urging of law enforcement as a follow up to last year’s successful AB 144, which banned openly carrying an unloaded handgun in public places. “Last year, we tried to craft a narrow bill to close a loophole in the hopes that gun enthusiasts would see this as a reasonable public safety measure,” commented Portantino.

“Unfortunately, the Open Carry folks began to carry rifles and other long guns posing a threat to public safety on Main Street -even taking their rifles to a police fundraiser. These actions call out for further legislative controls to protect law enforcement and families before someone is harmed by these unnecessary displays of weapon.” AB 1527 expands on the earlier bill and would authorize similar penalties – a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in county jail and a fine of up to $1000 – for individuals who openly carry unloaded long guns in public. In addition, AB 1527 provides a similar list of exemptions included in AB 144 to enable safe transportation, lawful hunting, and use by law enforcement officials. AB 1527 has the sup-

port of the California Police Chiefs Association, the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC), the California Chapters of the Brady Campaign and the Legal Community against Violence. Portantino was recently recognized by the Police Chiefs Association as legislator of the year for his success in authoring AB 144. “When law enforcement professionals ask the legislature to solve a problem, it’s incumbent on us to act. No one wants to read about the unintended consequence of gun proliferation on Main Street – it’s a tragedy that happens far too often. If it means I’ve got to do it again to make our streets safer for everyday Californians, I’m honored to do so,” concluded Portantino.

Assemblymember Portantino Pays Tribute to Community Activist During a special session of the State Assembly this morning, Assemblymember Anthony Portantino honored Altadena NAACP activist and lifelong educator Barbara Bigby as his 2012 Woman of the Year for the 44th Assembly District. “It gives me great pleasure to name Barbara Bigby as Woman of the Year for the 44th Assembly District,” said Assemblymember Portantino. “Mrs. Bigby’s lifelong mentorship of children demonstrates her passion for the safety and welfare of young people and her leadership of the Altadena NAACP shows a long-standing commitment to improving the community. “ In over 30 years as the owner and director of the Bright Eyed Day Care Center, Mrs. Bigby nurtured hundreds of young children. She also worked for twenty years as a youth counselor at her church becoming a strong advocate for young people. Barbara has been a tireless volunteer throughout her life for various community organizations and served

two terms as President of the Altadena chapter of the NAACP where she again focused on education advocacy. She has been a member of the YWCA, DeVeal Family Services Foundation, Sybil Brand Commission, numerous advisory councils and committees.

ACLU Calls for Transparency in Pasadena Police Shooting Pasadena Police Chief Requests Independent Review The American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California (ACLU/SC) is calling for an independent, third-party investigation of the officer-involved fatal shooting of 20-year-old Kendrec Lavelle McDade last Saturday in Pasadena. “The shooting of a resident by police is an extraordinarily serious incident in any community -- it puts great stress on the trust between police and the public,” said Peter Bibring, senior staff attorney with the ACLU of Southern California. “The best way of protecting that trust is for the department to provide the fullest transparency possible — that includes immediately retaining an impartial investigator and releasing the names of the officers involved, as the law requires. Obtaining review of the incident by an independent agency helps inform the community what happened and provide confidence that police have nothing to hide.” In 2009, 38-year-old Pasadena resident Leroy Barnes was shot to death by officers during a traffic stop. Following calls by the ACLU/SC and other organizations for review by an outside agency, Pasadena retained the Office of In-

dependent Review (OIR), an oversight agency that contracts with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, to review their internal investigation into the shooting. The report issued by OIR described the incident and investigation in great deal, and offered a number of recommendations, nearly all of which Pasadena ultimately adopted. Pasadena police say the shooting occurred following an armed robbery of a food truck. Officers say they chased a suspect, McDade, and fired when they saw him put his hand in the waistband of his pants. He was later found to be unarmed. Late Tuesday, the Pasadena Police Dept. issued a press release sating that Chief Sanchez Requests Office of Independent Review (OIR) to participate in officer involved shooting investigation. “The Pasadena Police Department continues to investigate the Officer Involved shooting and subsequent death of Kendrec Lavelle McDade, Black Male-20 of Azusa, California. On March 24, 2012 at 11:04 pm, the Pasadena Police Department was contacted by the victim of an armed robbery. The victim informed the officers that he was in the

vicinity of Summit Avenue and Orange Grove Boulevard when he was approached by two suspects who pointed a firearm at his face. The victim said both suspects were armed and fled the location. The victim immediately contacted the Pasadena Police Department and provided the above information. The victim informed the Department that he was following the two male suspects and provided their direction of travel. Officers were immediately dispatched to assist the victim and arrest the suspects. Two uniformed officers responded to the area, observed the victim and the suspect McDade running near Fair Oaks Avenue and Orange Grove Blvd. The officers pursued him north on Sunset Avenue from Orange Grove Blvd and during their attempt to detain McDade, an Officer Involved Shooting occurred. McDade’s identity was initially unknown. He was transported to local area hospital where he succumbed to his wounds. Pasadena Police Detectives reviewed a video recording that captured events related to this incident. The police department reviewed audio recording, including

911 tapes associated with the initial calls into the Pasadena Police Department. Additionally, individuals are continuing to be interviewed by Pasadena Police Detectives. As part of the officer involved shooting review the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Officer Involved Shooting team was contacted by the Pasadena Police Department in the early stages of the investigation. The District Attorney’s Office, OIS team responded to the incident and will conduct their independent review over the next few months.” On Tuesday, March 27, 2012 Pasadena Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez contacted the Office of Independent Review Group, which is under the direction of Mr. Michael Gennaco. Mr. Gennaco has been investigating police incidents for the past 10 years. The Pasadena Police Department’s standard protocol for officers involved in an Officer Involved Shooting incident is to schedule a period of time off during the initial investigation. Anyone with information regarding this crime, please to contact the police department at (626) 744-4241and ask for the detective section.

The Maryknoll Nuns Celebrate a Milestone By Susan Motander Despite the rain, hundreds turned out the help the Maryknoll Order of St. Dominic celebrate the 100th anniversary of it founding. A prayer service was held at Immaculate Conception Church in Monrovia, and those in attendance were truly celebrating with the sisters. The opening song “All the Earth Proclaim the Lord” ends with the line “sing your praise to God.” As the last note was fading away a very young voice chirped out “Yeah!” Obviously the spirit of celebration had moved that one young preschooler. Father Frank Tran of Immaculate Conception welcomed the congregation of more than 500 to the service. He noted that the order had a retirement

facility “here in our neighborhood and they are very good neighbors.” Maryknoll Sisters first came to Monrovia when they took over the control of a tuberculosis sanitarium in 1930. They have been a [part of the community ever since. The sisters who now reside at the facility in Monrovia are hardly retired. These women who are doctors, nurses, teachers and social workers, were missioners throughout the world and are still hard at work as volunteers throughout the community. Speaking to the sisters, Father Tran expressed it rather well: “You are God’s blessing to us all. Happy Anniversary.” Sister Maureen Gunning gave a brief history

of the Maryknoll order. The Maryknolls began their work in the Japanese communities in Seattle and Los Angeles 90 years ago. Eventually members of the order did missioner work throughout the Far East, Central Pacific, Latin America and Africa. To symbolize the uniting of the world through the efforts of the order, water from each region was poured into a common vessel. Following the service, those in attendance were able to tour the world through exhibits representing the various areas where the Maryknoll sisters worked. They continued the celebration in the Parish Hall with refreshments and presentations from various dignitaries.

Clergy Holds Meeting at Police Dept. Regarding Officer Invoved Shooting Saturday – Most Media Excluded By Terry Miller NAACP President in Pasadena, Joe Brown, told Beacon Media “ these are troubling times” minutes after he was at a closed to the press meeting about the incident which left one man dead in Pasadena Saturday as a result of Pasadena Police officer’s bullets. The meeting originally scheduled to be at NAACP headquarters was quickly changed to the Police Dept. and subsequebtly the media was essentually locked out of the converstaion. However, Beacon Media has learned from an anonymous source that one Joe Hopkins, Publisher of a local newspaper – The Pasadena Journal-, was, in

forming from a rather demure Catholic school pupil into a red-lipsticked, red-caped Wonder Woman. Rosalind Schoen, a senior at Sierra Madre Alverno School, was dubbed Red Rosie throughout her Reign as Doo Dah Queen. If you’ve not seen the Doo Dah Queen Tryouts, your not missing a thing…. you’re missing EVERYTHING! The talent , the music, the preamble to the parade later in the month is all part of the right of passage for any Doo Dah Fearing citizen of Pasadena. It is, without doubt, a true wonder on Pasadena you have to witness first hand to experience the frivolity and flavor. While the resourses for Doo Dah aren’t quite yet up to par with that “other parade” in Pasadena, no expense in spared in creativity. The queen tryouts themselves have proved, over the years, to be an experience somewhat akin to stepping back in time when the cares of the world just float by and the wonders of childhood are once again borne. Moreover, the judges, from all walks of life, take their job fairly seriously when it comes to choosing just the right Queen. She has to represent the spirit of Doo Dah. And what that is, no one knows.

fact, present at the meeting Tuesday afternoon. As a result of the Leyroy Barnes shooting a few years ago in 2009, the police dept. in Pasadena was ordered to follow a strict set of guidelines from an independent review – OIG. Chief Phillip Sanchez was very “forthcoming and transparaent and promised a full investigation,” according to Joe Brown.

Regardless, when it’s there, as in the case of young Rosaling Shoen last year, the esteemed and sometimes inebriated judges know just what they’re looking for. It’s fure fun, and that’s all that matters. The Doo Dah parade has absolutely no rules, which is why is has attracted so many eccentric and eclectic artists over the years. No rules, a terrific concept, methinks! For many as many years as one can remember, there has been a counter culture parade bringing a touch of New Orlean’s Mardi gras flavor with a dash of sheer, unadulterated fun insanity to Pasadena. The parade is everything you’d expect and so much more, or sometimes much less depending on your expectations. The parade slated for April 28 is touted to be the irreverant ‘ twisted sister’ of the Rose Parade but one can’t really compare the two as this year’s Grand Marshal, Ann Erdman will have riden in BOTH parades as of Sunday. Erdman, Pasadena’s retiring Public Information Officer, is a long time fan of Doo Dah and not only supported the antics and shear creativity of the entrants but has been one herself on many occasions as depicted in the photo herein of Ann asking us all to

Racing the Rain, Auto Club 400 Wins Although the morning started off with only a hint of clouds on the horizon, the drivers had to race the approaching rain along with each other on Sunday, March 25. The Auto Club 400 made it beyond half way before the rain hit the track. This made it an official race and brought out the only caution of the day. The steady rain forced the 200 lap race to be called by NASCAR at lap 129. Tony Stewart had a fast car and took the lead from Kyle Bush who dominated the race by leading 80 of the 129 laps. Stewart was in the lead when the rain drops began to fall. He took his car to victory lane and celebrated his second win of the season. His first win this season was in Las Vegas and it seems Stewart has been able to maintain his momentum from last season. Kyle Bush finished second and Dale Earnhardt Jr. finished third. With this finish, Junior is currently third in points. Although this season seems promising for Junior with two top five finishes and no DNF’s. He really needs to get his #88 Mountain Dew car into Victory Lane. It has been too long since he has had his hands on the checkered flag. His last win came in 2008. The lack of cautions

made it possible to get the race beyond the halfway point before the rain drops started hitting the track. In order for a race to be official, it must reach the half way point. However, there were winners and losers in the race against the rain. Jimmie Johnson’s car developed an oil leak and he was leaving a trail of smoke shortly after pitting just before the caution came out. Despite the oil leak, crew chief Chad Knaus told Johnson to stay out anticipating the red flag. The decision paid off for the team, Johnson finished in tenth place. Johnson was definitely the rain winner. Polesitter Denny Hamlin however lost nine positions when he and crew chief Darian Grubb decided to pit under the rain caution. Hamlin was running in second position and came out of the pits in eleventh making him the rain loser. Jeff Gordon finished twenty-sixth after a couple mishaps in the pits. He has only one top ten finish in the first five races of the season and is currently 25th in the point standings. Gordon looked like he was going to get his second top ten before his gas man Brad Pickens was not able to disengage the fuel

By Bill Harrington can as Gordon sped out of his pit. Pickens was dragged through Gordon’s pit and tumbled out of the pit box while still clutching the gas can. This resulted in Gordon having to serve a stop-and-go penalty under the green flag. The penalty put Gordon a lap down. During Gordon’s final pit under caution, his crew lost control of a tire. Despite the threatening weather conditions the race drew over 90,000 fans, including A&E’s Storage Wars Brandi Passant and Jarrod Schulz. Fans were able to walk the track prior to the race in the Coke Track Walk. The Grand Marshals of the race were The Three Stooges from their upcoming movie. Actress Kristy Swanson was the Honorary Starter waving the green flag. Singing the national anthem was the band Night Ranger who are celebrating their 30 year anniversary. Tillman the skateboarding dog was also on hand. NASCAR’s next Sprint Cup Series race will be Goody’s Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia on April 1. The race can be viewed on FOX at 9:30 a.m. pst. For more information visit www.nascar. com. Even though Jeff Gordon had one of the faster cars, due to mishaps on pit road, he finished 26th. -More photos on page 19-

get cuts. While many students are having difficulty getting classes the chancellor provided an explanation for why that is the case. "We can't raise taxes unless we get a two-thirds vote said Scott." Jack Scott explained that the tax increase would provide roughly $400 million to California's community colleges. However, if the measure doesn’t pass community colleges could face an additional $200 million in cuts for the 2012-2013 school year. A former legislator, Scott encouraged students to talk to their legislators about how the budget cuts have affected them so that their voice is heard. However, he did warn students not to occupy their office but instead communicate their message in a calm and convincing demeanor. The California community college system still remains the most affordable form of higher education in the country as well as the most accessible. The system's 112 campuses serve approximately 2.6 million students statewide. Since 2009 the state has seen a $5.7 million cut in funding for higher education. As a result many courses have been cut and hundreds of students have been turned

away. "It's sad to think that we're looking at a group of students who are thirsty for higher education, all of which would enrich their life and enrich the economy of California, and because of a lack of state resources, we're having to limit it," Scott said. Even though Scott formally announced that he will retire in September, he said he will continue to do whatever is in his control to protect higher education. He said he has met with legislators, the director of finance, and government aides to communicate his message of protecting higher education. He encouraged students to push to complete their education despite the budget cuts, since that is the key to success and mobility. He said that all studies indicate that the more educated you are the better you will perform in every aspect of your life. According to Scott, the community college system will remain open to anyone, regardless of the grades they received in high school. He often likes to say that the University of California takes the top 12 percent, the CSUs take the top 33 percent and the community colleges take the top 100 percent. He also emphasized the fact that the

state spends too much money on corrections and not enough on education. As a legislator, he wants to look into the three strikes rule of cutting down on such spending, and instead direct those funds towards higher education. "Sometimes I think we’re more interested in prison stripes than graduation gowns," Scott said. But "folks, when you put somebody away for a long time it costs lots of money..." Clearly the future of community colleges lies in the budget that the state has to fund them. What Jack Scott made clear was why we are currently facing the budget cuts and what we can do to improve the situation. While California community college tuition may have gone up in recent months, it still remains the most affordable form of higher education for most Californians seeking to graduate with an associate's degree, certificate or prepare to transfer. What can be taken away from the Townhall meeting is that education should remain a priority for students who have made that their goal despite barriers that may prevent them from graduating when they had originally planned to.

register as a gang member, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. Reports vary slightly but essentially but most agree that one officer fired a shot from the police car and the other officer may have fired the 7 other shots at the 19 year old Azusa man. Until the police report is made available, nothing is confirmed. The suspect has been identified as Kendrec Lavelle McDade, Black male-19, Azusa resident. Detectives notified the family at the hospital and the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Investigator responded and took possession of the body. Attorney Caree Harper, who represents the family of a 19 year old shot to death by Pasadena police last Sat-

meeting was held with police officials and clergy Tuesday however, the publisher of Pasadena Journal was allowed in the meeting for some unknown reason (see story on page 8). It has been reported that as many as 10 shots may have been fired at McDade and the coroner has not released the findings of the autopsy as of press time. However, the attorney Caree Harper for the McDade family and the 17 year old who survived, said Police Chief Sanchez told her that 8 bullets were fired. The weapon allegedly used by McDade or his 17-year-old suspected accomplice has not been recovered according to the latest reports from the dept. The former Football

Attorney Caree Harper said that she believes that officers Griffin and Newland were the officers involved and that she believes Griffin fired from the police car at McDade. This has yet to be confirmed by the PD. Harper said that she believes after her initial; investigation that the 911 called lied about the suspects having any weapon and did so just to get faster police response. The attorney also said the parents are still in shock with in incident and haven’t decided yet on any further legal action against the city. A 17-year-old, who has

urday, held a press conference Wednesday afternoon at NAACP Pasadena headquarters. Harper said she believes the 911 caller who implicated Kendrec McDade in an armed robbery was actually lying to get a faster police response. Harper indicated that she’d like a federal civil rights investigation of the incident, revealed the names of the police officers she said were involved in the incident, but stopped short of saying she has seen police report. During the NAACP press conference the Pasadena Police dept. issued a press release stating there would be a police press conference at 4:30. Many Community leaders in Pasadena are now seeking more answers in the officer involved shooting of Kendrec Lavelle McDade, 19, of Azusa. A closed door

player from Azusa High, McDade was shot and killed on Sunset Avenue just north of Orange Grove Boulevard after a foot pursuit by two Pasadena police officers. The officers believed that McDade was about to pull a weapon on them, hence the reason for the shooting. The names of the officers involved have not been released as is often the case in these instances. The family of Mc Dade has retained attorney Caree Harper who spoke with the Pasadena Independent prior to a press conference being held at Pasadena’s NAACP and said she believes there are just “ too many killings of black men in Pasadena.” The parents of Kendrec Lavelle McDade, Anya Slaughter and Kenneth McDade were visibly in shock and Ms. Slaughter said she had just given birth to another child just 7 days prior to

not been identified, was arrested as part of the incident Saturday night. He was booked on suspicion of murder even though he didn’t shoot McDade. The law states that a suspect in this situation caused the death of another. The charges have since been reduced and the murder charge dropped. However the 17 year old could possibly be tried as an adult. Joe Brown, President of the NAACP said that a community meeting is going to take place Saturday at Jackie Robinson Community Center. The time will be announced later, but probably will take place in the morning, he said.

10th Annual Palm Sunday Peace Parade Parade of Fools

Every Palm Sunday for the last nine years, members of Pasadena area churches and other community organizations have taken to the streets to march for peace and justice in the Palm Sunday Peace Parade. Begun in 2003, when the U.S. invaded Iraq, the march has become a call for economic justice as well as international peace. This year Palm Sunday falls on April 1, April Fools’ Day, so the theme of the parade is “Parade of Fools.” The parade’s flyer explains the theme: “In these days of endless war, we march as fools who believe that another world is possible.” Parade organizers formed the theme

around the biblical idea articulated by Paul in I Corinthians 1:27, “God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise.” Participants will wear jester hats or other funny hats, bang drums, carry signs and wave palm branches. Kimberly Medendorp, principal of The Peace and Justice Academy, one of the participating organizations, put it this way, “The leaders of the nations say that war is necessary, and the leaders of large corporations insist on great disparities of wealth that drive widespread poverty. I guess the leaders are just too smart for our own good. We common people are simple.

We are foolish enough to believe that a world of peace and equity is both possible and attainable.” The Palm Sunday Peace Parade is sponsored by Pasadena Mennonite Church, Church for Others, Good Shepherd Church of Pasadena, The Peace and Justice Academy, Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries, and The Urban Village of Pasadena. The parade will begin at 3:30 at Messiah Lutheran Church, 570 N. Madison Ave., and end on the public sidewalk in front of the Paseo Colorado mall at Garfield and Colorado.

African Enterprise Celebrates the 50th Anniversary 24 Years in Monrovia Local non-profit African Enterprise is set to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its first Christian evangelical mission to Pietermaritzburg, South Africa this year. AE will also be celebrating its 24th year as resident in the city of Monrovia. Originally founded at Pasadena’s Fuller Theological Seminary in 1962, AE has spent much of its time fundraising and organizing in the Pasadena area. The organization is committed to evangelism, reconciliation and political interaction in major countries across the Africa continent. South African evangelist Michael Cassidy, whom many consider to be Africa’s “Billy Graham”, founded the organization while earning his Bachelor of Divinity at Fuller. Dr. Charles E. Fuller, president and founder of the local seminary, saw the enormity

lists. I think people appreciated that we wanted to apply our Gospel not just to individual souls but to socio-political contexts we were meeting all across Africa.” In 1993, a few months prior to the first democratic elections in South Africa, the organization gathered 96 politicians from conflicting political parties to dialogue about the upcoming political events. “We were trusted and seen to be honest brokers. There was an understanding that we were not only dialogical ourselves but we were seeking to stimulate dialogue amongst them,” said Cassidy. The organization also arranged a peace rally attracting 30,000 people including powerful politicians such as presidential candidate Chief Inkosi Mangosuthu Buthelezi; Jacob Zuma, a representative of Mandela and later Presi-

dent of South Africa; and Danie Shutte, advisor to the then current president F.W. de Klerk. Local newspaper headlines read such things as “How God stepped in to save South Africa” (Natal Daily News), “It’s still the age of real-life miracles, even if they take their time” (The Sunday Tribune), and “30 000 say Yes to peace” (Natal Daily News). Every year, AE brings its message of healing and hope to over one million Africans. Over the past 50 years, it has carried out its evangelistic mission to cities across Africa including Cairo, Johannesburg, Addis Ababa, Accra, Nairobi and many others To learn more about African Enterprise and how you can become involved, please call 1-800-672-3742, visit africanenterprise.org or send an email to info@aeusa.org.

and necessity of Cassidy’s dream and helped start the organization. “I feel burdened,” said Fuller, “to help you get started with this vision of yours for Africa. So I am making you this offer: I will put the administrative services of my office at your disposal, lend you a little money, which you can pay back when you can, and I have three people in mind who could be the core of a little board.” With the support of Fuller and several local business owners and churches, AE was able to conduct their first evangelical mission in South Africa in 1962. This first crusade helped AE build valuable connections with politicians and churches in the US and Africa. “We often had access to people in high places that would not normally have come to traditional evange-

Lives Remembered Derek James Barnard Dec 22, 1955 – March 11, 2012 Derek James Barnard, son of Fred and Rose Barnard, was born in Portsmouth, England, died suddenly on March 11. The grave side service was held March 23 at Live Oak Park in Monrovia officiated by Reverend Ronald Beams. An avid football fan (soccer), Derek supported Portsmouth FC in Pompey. A painter by trade, Derek colored the lives he came across in his unexpectedly short life with a brilliant palate of passion for life and the sense of the absurd. To say Derek was a colorful character would be a gross understatement. While he painted many homes( in the traditional meaning of painting) in the Pasadena area in his life here in America he also was a devoted husband to his wife Cindy, who tragically died three months earlier from cancer.

Derek enjoyed the friendship of several British subjects who make their home in Pasadena and became a regular at

many British events in the area. Derek, like many an Englishman, also liked a beer now and again and frequented the more popular British Pubs for fish and chips and a pint. Derek also enjoyed

tennis and played regularly with a good friend. Additionally he made his own beer, wine and was passionate about music. Derek is survived by two delightful daughters: Nicole Rose who was born in 1989 and Anna Marie was born in 2001; his father Fred who traveled from England to be with the family. Appropriately, on Derek’s remembrance card handed out at the funeral was a cover painting reproduction by Thomas Kinkade the so called “ painter of light”. In actuality, anyone who knew Derek and had been touched by his humor knew that he was the true painter of light and lightheartedness. A gentle man who painted all our lives, with a rich tapestry of colors and emotion.

Human Trafficking Tattoo Removal Bill Passes Public Safety Committee AB1956 Helps Women Remove “Marks” of Pimps and Abusers In the underworld of prostitution, it’s not unusual to find pimps marking girls and women with “brands” or tattoos to indicate they are property; sending a message to the girl that she is in essence, property. The brands make it that much harder for girls – or boys – to break out of “the life”. A recent international news story shows that some who are forced into trafficking are tragically “bar coded” by their abusers. In order to help these young people get a fresh start, Assemblymember Anthony Portantino (DLa Cañada Flintridge) has introduced legislation that would enable these marked young people to get free tattoo remov-

als. Today, the Assembly Public Safety Committee agreed and voted unanimously to approve Portantino’s AB 1956. “When my Sacramento State intern researched this issue and brought it to my attention, I was shocked and outraged,” stated Assemblymember Portantino. “Branding is a despicable act by despicable people. This bill provides a first step in breaking the bonds of prostitution and helping these young victims begin new, meaningful lives. As a father of two daughters I had to see this issue become law.” Funding for the bill comes from Federal sources to the California Emergency Management Agency, CAL EMA. CAL EMA

currently administers the tattoo removal programs for at-risk youth breaking free from gangs. In Los Angeles, some 1,500 former gang members have participated in the Tattoo Removal Program through Homeboys Industries. The current protocols do not allow women who break free from prostitution to qualify for the tattoo removal. AB 1956 expands the definition for eligibility. “This bill helps generate a new start for young women who need break free. I’m very pleased by the bi-partisan recognition and support and very proud of Deanna Hanson for researching and initiating this bill, concluded Portantino.

Sierra Madre Library Children’s Room Renovation Gets Underway Work begins Monday, April 2 on renovations to the Sierra Madre Public Library Children’s Room. It has been nearly 20 years since the Children’s Room was last updated. The Children’s Room will be upgraded to make the most of new childcentered services and improve the use of space in the room. Plans include creating a preschool zone and a study/ reading area for students, and devoting more space to computers and technology, making the room more usable for children from birth through sixth grade. Sierra Madre’s Community Foundation recently presented a check for $15,000 to the Sierra Madre Pub-

lic Library to help fund the renovation of the Children’s Room. Erica Blodgett, Chair of the Sierra Madre Community Foundation, came before the Sierra Madre City Council on March 13 to present the donation to Library Director Carolyn Thomas. In a presentation last May, the Council recognized the Rotary Club for their donation of $20,000 to the Library Children’s Room Campaign. Together with donations from the Community Foundation, Rotary, the Friends of the library, Library Partners, the Mary Tumilty Endowment, Library Gift and Memorial Fund and generous individuals, more than $84,000 has been raised

for the project. During the 6-week “makeover,” the Children’s Room will be closed. Children’s services will move temporarily into the adjacent Library Reference Room, with a limited collection of picture, fiction and nonfiction books available for checkout. One homework and two early literacy computers will be available for use. Preschool Story Times will continue as scheduled, but school class visits will be suspended during construction. When the remodel is complete, the Children’s Room will be renamed the “Rotary Children’s Library.”

NOTICE TO POTEN¬TIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand 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 paying 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 mort¬gagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (916) 939 0772 or visit this Internet Web http://search.nationwideposting.com/ propertySearchTerms.aspx using the file number assigned to this case CA1100238196. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immedi¬ately be reflected in the telephone informa¬tion or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mort¬gagor, the Mortgagee or the Mortgagee’s Trustee.

Alverno High School Enjoys ‘An Evening on the Emerald Isle’ On Saturday, March 17, 2012 more than 280 members of the Alverno community gathered at the Pasadena Hilton dressed in their St. Patrick’s Day finest to celebrate Alverno High School’s Annual Gala. The theme for this year’s event was “An Evening on the Emerald Isle” and guests were treated to an authentic Irish experience. “The Annual Gala is always such a feel-good event for our entire school community! Our alumnae and past parents return to Alverno, along with our current parents, Board Members, and faculty and staff to provide much-needed support to our school and most

importantly, our students,” said Wendy-Finch-Burk, Director of Development and Alumnae Relations at Alverno. “Past funds raised from the Annual Gala have allowed Alverno to purchase air conditioning units for all classrooms, new desks for the entire school, and two 15-passenger vans for school transportation.” Overall proceeds from this year’s Gala will assist Alverno in repairing the damage done to the campus by the December 2011 windstorms, including damage to the Villa del Sol d’Oro. In addition to the repair projects, the funds will also be used to replace the downed trees and beau-

tify the areas of our campus that were hardest hit by the windstorms. “Alverno has a tremendous community of parents, alumnae, Board Members, and faculty and staff who provide unwavering support to our school and current students,” said Ann Gillick, Head of School. “In addition to helping to make campus improvements and repair damage caused by the windstorms, funds raised at “An Evening on the Emerald Isle” will help Alverno to continue our mission of empowering each young woman to be exactly the person she wants to be.”

Celebrate Holy Week & Easter at Sierra Madre’s Church of the Ascension As at any joyous holiday season, you can count on Church of the Ascension – Sierra Madre’s Village Church - to be the place where you can join with friends and neighbors to remember the events of Holy Week and rejoice at the miracle of Easter. All of the services point to the joy of the Paschal Mystery – the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Services during Holy Week 2012 include: Palm (Passion) Sunday April 1 at both 8 AM and 10:15 AM Both services include the Blessing of Palms. The 10:15 AM service will begin in the Memorial Garden with a procession into the Church. Tenebrae – Wednesday April 4 7:00 PM Readings from the Holy Scripture and the Early Church. Maundy Thursday April 5 7:00 PM

Foot-washing and Mass. This service begins what is known as the Triduum – the Three Holy Days. Good Friday April 6 12:00 PM Stations of the Cross 7:00 PM Liturgy & Veneration. There are two distinct services on Good Friday. The first is the Stations of the Cross which begins in the Church and processes around the grounds. The second service is the Good Friday Liturgy & Veneration of the Cross before the Church “goes dark” until Easter Eve. Easter Vigil April 8 6:00 AM The pre-dawn Sunday morning Easter Vigil is both a spiritual and physical awakening as the sun rises over the outdoor service and the congregation shares the joy of the Resurrection. The service then moves into the sanctuary where

we experience the music of Easter, the beautifully decorated church, the Easter sermon, and together celebrate the first Eucharist Mass of Easter. An old tradition at Ascension is for everyone to bring bells to ring as a sign of our joy. Easter Service, April 8 10:15 AM Church Traditional Easter message, Music, and Festival High Mass. The proclamation of Jesus’ Resurrection is again accompanied by the bells brought by the congregation. Come for some part or all of this series of reflection. Holy Week and Easter services are great ways to meet new neighbors and check out a wonderful community church.
