By Terry Miller In the late summer of 1944, a C-47 landed in Yan’an, a remote town in northwestern China’s Shaanxi Province. On board were US military and diplomatic staff, sent

to the headquarters of the Communist Party of China (CPC) as members of the US Army Observer Group, better known as the Dixie Mission. It was the first official contact between the US government and the Chi-

nese Communists. Sierra Madre resident Shoso Nomura, 93, was there for this hisoric event and has now, 68 years later, just received his Nisei Congressional Gold Medal of Honor after serving his country as a Japanese

American intelligence officer for the US Army in WW 11. Shoso Nomura was one of only two Sierra Madre men who received the honor. The other recipient was WWII Veteran

Tim Donnelly Charged with 2 Misdemeanors for Attempting to Bring a Loaded Weapon Aboard Airline

Temple City Felon Gets $20,000 Wedding Paid by ‘Wish Upon a Wedding’

month it seems unlikely that he’ll do any jail time. The 45-year-old Twin Peaks Republican was charged Friday with illegal possession of a loaded firearm and possession of a prohibited item. The two counts against Donnelly carry maximum jail sentences of one year and six months, respectively, however judges are free to impose lighter sentences . Each also carries a potential $1,000 fine. According to experts it seems that Donnoly will get a slap on the wrist and a small fine dur to his position in the state assembly. The San Bernardino County District Attorney's office announced the filing of charges

had $570,000 bond attached to his record. On Monday, Sosa got married at someone elses’ expense to the tune of $20,000 A local daily newspaper made a big splash over a couple getting married due to Sosa’s failing liver condition and was granted ther wedding by Orange County/Los Angeles area chapter of Wish Upon a Wedding . Sosa who said he has end-stage liver disease, wanted to marry fiance, Adriana Tafoya. The wedding, held at The Maxwell House in Pasadena on Monday night, was estimated to have cost up to $20,000. Local vendors footed the bill for time and materials.. A simple check revealed

While Assemblyman Tim Donnelly has been charged with two misdemeanors for bringing a briefcase containing a loaded .45-caliber gun into Ontario International Airport last

eight weeks after Donnelly's Colt Mark IV was located by TSA as he tried board a flight to Sacramento. Donnelly said he “regrets any inconvenience he caused.” Donnelly had told various media conflicting reports about being forgetful but also said that he tended to arm himself because of death threats received after he launched a campaign to repeal the Dream Act. No such death threats were verified. Donelly's gun had four rounds in its magazine, and a spare magazine contained five founds, Donnelly is scheduled to appear March 15 in Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court.

Dorothy's Place Enjoying Borrowed Time

By Dorothy Denne We are all living on borrowed time. We merely hold our lives in trust. When we come to the end of our lives on earth, we will take no material thing with us wherever we go. Whether you believe in Heaven and Hell or just figure you will wind up in a hole in the ground or as ashes in an urn, make the best use you can of your borrowed time. Emotional and spiritual impoverishment cannot be compensated by the comforts of material possessions. Being products of our society, we tell ourselves if only we had this or that, we would feel beter. So we get this or that and sure enough we feel better, but not for long. There is always another this or that to tempt us.

I do need private space, but I also love people. When I'm busy meeting people and cultivating friendshiips, my thoughts are not on the car I drive or the house I live in. I'm not moping or wanting or wishing. If we are granted the opportunity to grow old, to do it happily we must expect better things right up to the end of life and even beyond that. A good life is a growing, expanding life, with ever-widening horizons, an ever-greater circle of friends and acquaintances and an ever-greater opportunity for usefulness. I just recently lost a loved one, except to memory, and what memories I have. More than once, between us, we didn't have two pennies to rub together but oh how we could laugh. We would walk in the woods and talk or just be quiet and listen to Nature. There were times we would cry but mostly we laughed. When we had enough pen-

nies we would buy peanut butter sundaes and indulge and bulge. For us, laving anything with peanut butter was like having a religious experience. We weren't always consciously aware of what we were doing but we each had a knack for turning an ordinary experience into a most extraordinary experience. Her loan of life has matured, her borrowed time depleted, but she truly used every moment she was given. She takes nothing material with her, she leaves little material behind. She left me an inheritance of joy I hope to share with all I meet. My tears have been shed. Now, in her memory, I'm going to take the hunkenest big spoonful of peanut butter I can, slice it with my teeth into the tiniest of bites, slide them slowly over my taste buds and savor every single calorie. I will immerse myself in the moment and I will emerge happier.

Jeremy Lin, Ambassador of Basketball for All Nations, Shows Us the Power of Prayer, Perseverance, and Positive Attitudes By Harry Sneider

Basketball sensation Jeremy Lin on the cover of Sports Illustrated held by Coach Harry Sneider. -Courtesy Photo

As basketball coaches for the Pasadena Ambassador College Royals in the ‘70’s, Jim Petty, Gil Norman and I had a mission to set a high standard of character with our basketball program just as Jeremy Lin as done in his own personal life. We used Biblical standards to display character to the world just as Jeremy is doing with his life. One of the reasons Jeremy has been successful is that he believes in the power of prayer. Recently he felt he may not be kept on the New York Knicks basketball club and he asked his friends and fellow players to pray for his future. His future exploded with sensational results! Winning seven games in a row, averaging over 25

points per game with as many as 10 assists, he became an international sensation! Jeremy is great for basketball as well as a wonderful example for all of us to emulate. As a professional sports fitness trainer, I’ve worked with a number of athletes that have appeared on the Sports Illustrated cover. They include world chess champion Bobby Fischer, world high jump record holder Dwight Stones, and Indy 500 winner Danny Sullivan. Being on the Sports Illustrated cover is a true milestone for any athlete and Jeremy reached this in just under three weeks! Do you want to be a great leader? Do what Jeremy does: 1) He believes in a higher power. 2) He

prays and asks for guidance. 3) He works diligently on his skill, basketball. 4) He is a team player. 5) He encourages fans to look to a high standard. 6) He gives a lot of credit to his family, coaches, and teachers. 7) He has a positive mental attitude. Let Jeremy’s story inspire you. You have the potential to be better that you are. Dream, believe, work, stay positive – you may be on that Sports Illustrated some day, too! GO FOR IT! Harry and Sarah Sneider are coaches and trainers who worked with some of the greatest athletes in the world. They are available to work with you. Give them a call 626-355-8964 or email harrysneider@earthlink.net.

Send your letters to tmiller@beaconmedianews.com Dear Editor: The latest attack really hits home for me. That's because it's happening in my home state: Texas. On Thursday, Texas Governor Rick Perry moved to effectively sabotage the state's entire Medicaid Women's Health Program, which provides 130,000 low-income women with basic reproductive health care services. This comes on the heels of devastating cuts to women's health funding across the board — cuts already expected to leave 160,000 women without care this year. Within days and weeks, even more women — who very often have no other options — will be cut off from health care. Governor Perry and his conservative allies have once again chosen politics over the lives of Texas women. He will never know the reality of the women that rely on these programs. He will never

know what it's like for a woman who feels a lump in her breast, but has to worry about the cost of a doctor's visit. Political games with women's health and women's lives are shameful and wrong, and they must be stopped. Please join me in letting Governor Rick Perry know that you are standing with women in Texas to fight this egregious action. Add your name to my letter to him: Dear Governor Perry, Shame on you. Shame on you for putting politics before the needs of 130,000 women who rely on the Texas Medicaid Women’s Health Program. Shame on you for telling women who need access to affordable birth control that your narrow ideology matters more than their futures. Shame on you for denying women cancer screenings that could save their lives. You will never

know the reality of the women who rely on these programs. You will never know what it’s like for a woman who feels a lump in her breast, but has to worry about the cost of a doctor’s visit. It is unconscionable to cut them off from lifesaving care all because you’re part of an outdated, outrageous, and incredibly out-of-step idea of what’s good for women. Know this: You didn’t just pick a fight with the 130,000 women who rely on the Texas Medicaid Women’s Health Program. You picked a fight with the millions of women and men who stand with them. You picked a fight with me. I will do whatever it takes to stop this ban in Texas. I will do whatever it takes to ensure that women in your state continue to get the health care they need. Sincerely, Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood

Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd Deliver on Promise of Laughs in New Raunchy Comedy Film Review By Michael James Gonzalez There’s barely a story in there somewhere, but you quickly stop caring once you sit back and let the filmmakers who have brought us “Knocked Up, “40 Year Old Virgin,” and “Role Models” do what they do best: raunchy, Rrated comedy, but with pretty people this time. Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd star in “Wanderlust” as a husband and wife who flee their financial woes in New York City and head toward Atlanta, Georgia, where Rudd’s egotistical brother has offered him a job at his Porta-Potty busi-

ness. They quickly, however, decide to escape to the hippie commune they encountered on their drive to Atlanta, which is led by charming stoner Seth (Justin Theroux). But the couple gains more “insight” than they bargain for at this commune, as nudity, free love, pot, and spiritual mumbo jumbo are the order of the day. Whacky supporting characters are played by a first-rate cast, including Alan Alda as the commune’s acid-shocked elder statesman, Malin Akerman as the sexy, yogi girlfriend of Seth, Joe Lo Truglio as a

nudist winemaker/novelist, and Lauren Ambrose (“Six Feet Under”) and Kathryn Hahn (“Our Idiot Brother”). While the film aspires to be a story about a floundering, straight-laced couple whose commitment to each other is challenged by the prospect of sex with other people, it becomes clear early on that the gags and raunchy humor take precedence over the script. The film is indeed humorous and contains some interesting moments, but, as the trailers promise, it’s mostly dirty, situational comedy with a little soul-searching.

that designates them as a state legislator or retired state legislator. The cost of these plates is $12 on issuance, and no additional or annual fees are paid with subsequent yearly registration. The Department of Motor Vehicles has stated that there are 750 of these legislative license plates that have been issued in California. In contrast, average Californians, retired police and fire included, pay $50 upon issuance and $35 per year thereafter. “Why should current

and former legislators get special treatment for the issuance of license plates? It makes no sense for former and sitting legislators to be treated any differently than everyone else,” Portantino said.

partment has issued a news release regarding whether Mr. Matheson will be required to register as a sex offender in the United States following his conviction in Canada. To be clear, HSI is not involved in that process. Here is a link to a document on the Department of Justice website outlining the registration guidelines for sex offenders – http://www. ojp.usdoj.gov/smart/pdfs/ final_sornaguidelines.pdf On page 16, there is specific information regarding the implications of foreign convictions. Here’s that Guideline as per DoJ: B. Foreign Convictions Section 111(5)(B) of SORNA instructs that registration need not be required on the basis of a foreign conviction if the conviction “was not obtained with sufficient safeguards for fundamental fairness and due process for the accused under guidelines or regulations established [by the Attorney General].” The following standards are adopted pursuant to section 111(5)(B): Sex offense convictions under the laws of Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand are deemed to have been obtained with sufficient safeguards for fundamental fairness and due process, and registration must be required for such convictions on the 17 same footing as domestic convictions. Sex offense convictions under the laws of any foreign country are deemed to have been obtained with sufficient safeguards for fundamental fairness and due process if the U.S. State Department, in its Country

Reports on Human Rights Practices, has concluded that an independent judiciary generally (or vigorously) enforced the right to a fair trial in that country during the year in which the conviction occurred. Registration must be required on the basis of such convictions on the same footing as domestic convictions. With respect to sex offense convictions in foreign countries that do not satisfy the criteria stated above, a jurisdiction is not required to register the convicted person if the jurisdiction determines—through whatever process or procedure it may choose to adopt—that the conviction does not constitute a reliable indication of factual guilt because of the lack of an impartial tribunal, because of denial of the right to respond to the evidence against the person or to present exculpatory evidence, or because of denial of the right to the assistance of counsel. The foregoing standards do not mean that jurisdictions must incorporate these particular criteria or procedures into their registration systems. Jurisdictions may wish to register all foreign sex offense convicts, or to register such convicts with fewer qualifications or limitations than those allowed under the standards set forth above. The stated criteria only define the minimum categories of foreign convicts for whom registration is required for compliance with SORNA, and as is generally the case under SORNA, jurisdictions are free to require registration more broadly than the SORNA minimum.

To Gain Control or Not to Gain Control: The Ontario Airport Ongoing Controversy By Krishna Rajagopalan

The recent controversy between the Ontario Airport and Los Angeles World Airports has stirred up quite a bit of discussion. For a while, Los Angeles World Airports, which owns Ontario Airport, has been charging very high passenger fees, which turns off potential Ontario Airport passengers. Those passengers end up going to LAX because passenger fees are dramatically lower at LAX than at Ontario Airport. Ontario Airport officials are concerned that their airport may be forced to shut down if this trend continues. Los Angeles World Airport officials instead blame the current recession and changing business models for the lack of passengers at Ontario Airport. However, LAX refuses to give up control because it wants to use those funds from Ontario to modernize LAX. Passengers who live in South El Monte will have to commute to LAX, which is much farther for them than Ontario Airport. Currently, residents in the San Gabriel Valley, particularly South El Monte and Monrovia, use Ontario Airport as their choice for travel. The San Gabriel Valley Economic Partnership met on Feb. 1st

to execute a strategy of support for the city of Ontario to gain control of the airport, but nothing has been decided. Ontario officials argue that an estimated 8,000 airport-related jobs and $400 million in yearly business activity have been lost. For travelers, Ontario was a popular discount airport before the economic crash. Now, there are 47% fewer flights and about 60% fewer destinations. If Ontario Airport becomes busier as a result of Ontario gaining control over their airport, Los Angeles World Airport officials fear that that LAX may lose business. Four years ago, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said that the savings from closing Palmdale Airport — an estimated $7 annually — would go towards Ontario International Airport , yet nothing has come of that plan. In addition, the idea of Ontario taking control of its own airport has the support of twenty agencies including the Southern California Association of Governments, a powerful regional planning agency. After three decades of stable growth and earning a Forbes rating as one of the nation's top "alternative air-

ports," Ontario International is now among the fastest declining midsize airports in the country. Recently, a business passenger was traveling out of Ontario International, and was shocked to see an empty terminal and turned to the skycap who said that the airport was indeed open. All of the food outlets and shops were closed, and there were very few passengers in the middle of the day. The airport is expected to lose an additional 200,000 passengers, setting it back to the 1987 levels when Ronald Reagan was president. To put it into perspective, nationally, Cincinnati is the only airport losing passengers at this rate. Inland Empire officials argue that while Los Angeles has had 12.4% to 13% unemployment, LAX has still managed to grow. Their efforts to reclaim the ownership of Ontario Airport has been galvanized by their disillusionment with Los Angeles World Airports that acquired Ontario Airport virtually free in 1985 (after operating it for nearly two decades). Ultimately, a compromise must be reached between the two entities in order for them to best meet the needs of their passengers.

Monrovia Fire Promotes Four The Monrovia Fire Department is pleased to announce the promotions of four members of its current personnel. The recent promotions were awarded to Ryan Phillips, Jeremy Sanchez, Dave Phillips and Harvey Hewitt, who combined have over 40 years of fire fighting experience. Division Chief Ryan Phillips – With over 18 years of service, Ryan Phillips, a Monrovian resident, assumed the duties as the “A shift” commander on the morning of February 16. “Chief Phillips’ ability to effectively manage emergency operations is exceptional,” said Fire Chief Chris Donovan, who went on to highlight Phillips’ long tradition of professionalism and dedication to Monrovia. The Chief’s faith in Phillips was quickly confirmed; by 2 p.m. of his first shift as Division Chief, Phillips’ crew had already responded to four emergency incidents, and established incident command at both a vegetation and a structure fire. Under his new title, Chief Phillips will oversee the department’s Administration

Nisei Soldier Shoso Nomura

Continued from page 1

Nisei soldiers of WWII depicted in the Gold Medal.

Mitsuo Kunihiro, 93. Born on Luck Baldwin’s daughter’s ranch (on the corner of Foothill and Double Drive – known today as Santa Anita) Shoso Nomura has led a truly wonderful and colorful life. Particularly in The Nomura family had a farm at that southwest corner and Shoso started working there in 1915. Masaichi ( Charlie) Nomura, Shoso’s dad, was originally from Hiroshima and moved the States in 1901 for a better life. The elder Nomura started a grocery store in Kersting Court ( now home of Lucky Baldwin’s Delerium). Nomura’s grocery store lasted until 1923 where he continued to be

a “vegetable peddler” in Sierra Madre exclusively. At that time in history, Sierra Madre was a city of only about 2,000 people. It was aliving for the Nomura family and then Pearl Harbor was bombed. “ Those damn fools…” Nomuma’s mother exclaimed citing the overwhelming power of the US Military machine. It was then that everything changed for Japanese-Americans. A presidential internment order unsettled the lives of all Japanese Americans living in the United States. When President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 which created military exclusion zones on the Pacific coast, it effectively authorized the internment of 110,000

Japanese Americans living to camps inland for the duration of the war. Around 18,000 Japanese in Hawaii were interned, more than 60 percent of them American citizens. It wasn’t easy at first for Nomora’s mother who was told by some internees just after internment began … “ you raised a dog. He’s a spy” – referring to her son’s choice of profession…volunteering for the MIS. The Nomura’s sold their market as soon as the evacuation orders came out. As part of the United States Army Observation Group, commonly known as the Dixie Mission, Nomura was one of the first U.S. Intelligence Officers effort to establish official relations with the Communist Party of China and the People's Liberation Army, then headquartered in the mountainous city of Yan'an. This mission was launched on 22 July 1944 during World War II, and lasted until 11 March 1947. In January of 1944 Shoso Nomura was shipped to China/Burma/India theatre and then assigned to General HQ, CBI in New Delhi, India. From there he served with SINTIC ( Sino Translation and Interrogation Center in Chungking, China. From there he went on with the Dixie Mission in Communist China. First denied enlistment, Nisei men were recruited and tested in the internment camps as Japanese translators to serve in the Pacific Theater. The internment order would not allow Nisei to be schooled at The Presidio in San Francisco, and so the Military Intelligence Service Language School (MISLS) was moved to Minnesota,

first at Camp Savage and then to Fort Snelling. MIS linguists served in Chungking, China under Chiang Kai-Shek in July 1944. Five MIS Nisei participated in an American mission to Yenan, which operated as Mao Tse Tung’s headquarters. The servicemen nicknamed this mission the “Dixie Mission” because it was in “rebel” territory. The MIS interrogated Japanese POWs to extract intelligence information on the Japanese units as well as wrote propaganda leaflets distributed among the prisoners and intercepted communications. The MIS worked diligently day and night to gather vital information. MIS soldiers who served in China included: Koji Ariyoshi, Shoso Nomura, Jack Ishii, Toshio Uesato, George I. Nakamura On November 2, 2011, the Congressional Gold Medal was presented collectively to the U.S. Army's 100th Infantry Battalion, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, and the Military Intelligence Service, also known as the Nisei Soldiers of World War II. The medal was in recognition of their dedicated service during World War II. They were, and are, nisei, second-generation Japanese-Americans who in World War II fought tenaciously for the very country that had interned them and their family members. In addition to establishing foreign relations, the goal was to investigate the Communist Party politically and militarily, and determine if the U.S. would benefit from es-

tablishing such a liaison. John S. Service, of the United States Department of State, at that time was responsible for political analysis, and Colonel David D. Barrett of the United States Army performed the military analysis for the US observer group (Dixie Mission) Initially, they reported that the Chinese Communists might be useful wartime and post-war ally, and that the atmosphere in Yan'an was more energetic and less corrupt than in Nationalist areas. After the war, the Dixie Mission's reports, and Service and Barrett, were condemned by pro-Chinese Nationalist factions in the American government and fell victim to McCarthyism. Service was fired from his position at the State Department, and Barrett was denied a promotion . The brief existence of the Dixie Mission served as a positive memory between the People's Republic of China and the United States during the administration of President Richard M. Nixon when official relations between the two countries were re-established. Veterans of the Dixie Mission, like John Service and Koji Ariyoshi and Shoso Nomura were among the first Americans invited to visit the People's Republic of China. The 100th/442nd was a blend of Hawaiian and mainland Japanese Americans that became the most decorated unit in United States military history for its size and length of service. Combined, the 100th

and the 442nd received 7 Presidential Unit Citations, 21 Medals of Honor, 29 Distinguished Service Crosses, 560 Silver Stars, 4,000 Bronze Stars, 22 Legion of Merit Medals, 15 Soldier’s Medal, and over 4,000 Purple Hearts. MIS honors have been slow to come, in part for the secrecy of their service. As intelligence officers he said they were under orders to keep quiet about their service for decades after the war. Past Congressional Gold Medal recipients include George Washington, Mother Teresa and Winston Churchill. Less valorously, lawmakers also have bestowed the medal on the likes of singer Frank Sinatra. Those present at the November ceremony said the veterans of the 100th Infantry Battalion, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and the Military Intelligence Service truly earned their honors the hard way. "You fought World War II on two fronts," Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer of California told the veterans, quoting former President Harry Truman. "You fought not only your enemy; you fought prejudice, and you won." At 93 Shoso Nomura’s sense of humor is still razor sharp to which his wife Florence can attest. At the end of our interview Shoso Nomura quipped “ When you stop and think about it, I’m a pretty versatile guy.”

San Gabriel Police Association Voices Disapproval Over Financing of New Police Facility By jim e. wilburn Although the San Gabriel City Council decided to move forward with plans for a long-awaited new police facility, the Police Officers’ Association at Tuesday’s meeting voiced their disapproval over financing concerns they feel will burden its community. At a study session before the meeting, the council authorized the release of environmental impact report documents for a construction plan that would provide the city with a new police facility and new city public works yard, while tasking staff to examine funding alternatives. According to City Manager Steven Preston, the city has been studying how to build the new police facility for the last 10 years. Current proposals for financing the project include increasing transient occupancy taxes, parking fines and business license taxes. However, these funding measures would all go to the voters to decide, Preston said. Representatives and fellow supporters of the San Gabriel Police Officers’ Association filled the City Hall chambers to capacity to express their disapproval over the fiscal impacts of the project. Police Chief David Lawton said that the labor group is opposed to spending money to finance the project during these hard economic times. “I think they (the SGPOA) recognize the need for projects to benefit the community but are somewhat opposed to the city spending money at a time like this.” Detective Fabian Valdez, president of the SGPOA, told the City Council Tuesday night that the timeliness was inappropriate, the method of funding inadequate, and that the decision would neglect oth-

er city interests. “If San Gabriel moves forward with approving these two projects, it will show how much the council is out of touch with the city’s business needs,” Valdez said. “The police association supports a new station when the city is able to financially support it. Please don’t gamble with risky tax increases -- it will potentially drive businesses away.” According to Preston, the combined project of the new city police facility and new city public works yard will cost a total of $36.5 million. The city has been putting aside $875,000 a year since 2004 for the project. The money is not taken out of the general fund, rather it is earmarked to finance the future construction of the facilities. This leaves the city to finance the balance of the cost, which is $27.3 million. So to cover the remaining amount for the project, estimated to be about $2.1 million a year, Finance Director Tom Marston said revenue mechanisms, such as increasing transient occupancy taxes, parking fines and business license taxes, were proposed to cover the funding gap. “With these proposed revenue increase mechanisms, we are trying to give strong respect to the community,” Marston said, “providing valuable new facilities to residents, but not having them pay for it.” Citing the staff’s proposed timeline, Preston estimates the public works facility will be completed by December 2013, while the police facility, to be built at the current public works site, will be completed by November 2015. Lt. Darren Perrine, project manager for the new police facility, said the current station was built in 1962 to support about 40 personnel. “We currently have about 95 working here,” he said.

“We’re desperately in need of improvements to our building, which according to today’s standards should be three times that size for our current needs.” Perrine said the current facility was besieged by the recent windstorms that rendered the station’s dispatch and radio systems inoperable. “The building was never designed to support the current technology, and it needs to be addressed,” he said, adding that the new 33,500 square-foot facility would be outfitted with a modern communication center, community room, and an outdoor firing range. Although Valdez recognizes the benefits of a new police facility for the force, he said he does not understand how the city is willing to take extraordinary measures to build two new buildings by raising taxes and fines. With the San Gabriel Police Department currently in labor negotiations with the city, Valdez said there is a bigger community issue than compensation for police officers. “It is the lack of a business-friendly environment in San Gabriel,” he said in a phone interview. “We believe the public values public safety as an important issue, but we’re not asking for a raise at this time, just no further cuts. We get it, do they (the council)?” Preston said he respectfully disagrees with the police association’s analysis of San Gabriel’s economic condition, noting that the city is debt free and capable of floating a bond without taxing the citizens. “Well, if their argument is that they don’t want to tax anybody, then the council will look at it closely,” Preston said. “And if we can find a satisfying way to fund construction, then we will.”

The Gold Line Construction Authority, City of Monrovia, and the Successor Agency to the Monrovia Redevelopment Agency signed an agreement Thursday that will result in the Authority acquiring the remaining land needed for the project’s maintenance and operations facility. The agreement includes settlement of all lawsuits and claims related to the land acquisition and follows the City Council and Successor Agency’s approval of the terms earlier this week, and the Construction Authority Board’s approval last night.

The agreement is actually a “Stipulation for Entry of Judgment in Condemnation” and will now be sent to the Superior Court judge overseeing the eminent domain case for final approval and judgment. Once approved, the Authority will have the ownership rights it needs for 100% of the land required for the maintenance facility – an important milestone for the project, per our funding agreement with Metro and our contractual agreement with the Kiewit Parsons Joint Venture (the Alignment design-build contrac-

The terms agreed to today include four separate elements. The Authority agreed to pay $40.6 million to obtain the land held by the City and the Successor Agency and to settle the eminent domain case and all current and future claims and objections by the City related to this land acquisition. The Successor Agency and City agreed to reimburse the Authority up to $200,000 for legal expenses related to the Excalibur Property Holdings, LLC case and $650,000 environmental remediation costs associated with mitigating contamination on the land. The City and the Authority agreed to arrangements related to the planned parking facility for the future Monrovia Gold Line station. The Authority agreed to pay the actual amount (up to $15.75 million) needed to make public improvements around the 24-acre maintenance facility, as required under the City’s Transit Village Planned Development Area.

Mardi Gras Parade with King Kenneth Wogensen, MD. -Courtesy Photo

About 500 guests honored neurologist Dr. Kenneth Wogensen as Mardi Gras King 2012 last week at the 17th annual Mardi Gras at Sirona’s, Santa Anita Park. Over $79,000 was raised in support of Methodist Hospital’s stroke program. Guests were treated to delicious food provided by 24 top area restaurants. The traditional Mardi Gras parade, led by Arcadia High School band members, included Dr. Wogensen dressed in royal garb and members of the Mardi Gras committee. Ernest and Gunde Posey were top “Mardi Gras” sponsors. Other top sponsors were HealthCare Partners Medical Group – Region 1 and Kindred

Healthcare/RehabCare. As Dr. Wogensen “reigned” over the festivities, committee co-chairs Lindburgh McPherson and Sherri Taylor greeted folks and ensured that guests had a fun time. They and their committee of 28 volunteers spent many hours planning the event. Julie Maldonado won the iPad2 drawing, and awards were given to restaurants in the Best Presentation Contest. Dave and Buster’s won first place, and The Derby and Opera took second place. The support provided from the Mardi Gras proceeds will help with the expansion of the hospital’s stroke program, which greatly impacts the lives of those afflicted by

a stroke as well as their loved ones. Stroke is the leading cause of death and primary cause of adult disability within the United States. It is imperative to immediately call 911 if someone appears to have stroke symptoms.

Continued from page 1 Californians sent me to represent them. Second, I am a proud institutionalist, and I believe that this institution is as great as it has ever been. “My decision has been a deliberative one. Three years ago I contemplated leaving at the end of the previous Congress, but I ultimately chose to seek reelection for the sake of pursuing four key objectives: (1) to reverse the very dangerous 82% increase in non-defense discretionary spending that we had in the previous two Congresses; (2) to finally pass the job-creating free trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and South Korea; (3) to enhance our national security by working to strengthen the legislatures of new and reemerging democracies across the globe through the bipartisan House Democracy Partnership; and (4) to ensure, through the Rules Committee, that both Democrats and Republicans have the opportunity to offer their solutions by proposing amendments on the House

From 6 to 10 p.m. a dozen cultural venues will open their doors and the city of Pasadena will provide free shuttle service at each location. Walking is also an option as many of the venues are clustered downtown. To join a bicycling group visit www.cicle.org.

Dreier Retires floor. “Mr. Speaker, I have been honored to play a part in the effort to accomplish these four goals. Acting in a bipartisan way, we have fundamentally altered the federal spending process, focusing on fiscal discipline rather than profligacy. We not only passed all three pending free trade agreements. We did so with the largest bipartisan support of any trade measure in years. The 17 partner countries of the House Democracy Partnership are making important strides, and the advent of the Arab Spring has brought about the greatest opportunity in more than a generation for democracy throughout the Arab world. Finally, both Democrats and Republicans can offer their ideas on the House floor.” Dreier joins a handful of other Republicans from California who are retiring as a result of redistricting. Dreier’s district went away as a result of redistricting.

While a handful of members, who are in similar situations, are running in neighboring districts, Dreier had few other options. In his floor speech, he said he made the decision, because Americans are asking for change in Congress. “We all know that this institution has an abysmally low approval rating,” Dreier said, “and the American people are asking for change in Congress. And so, I’m announcing today that I will leave the congress at the end of this year.” Dreier was first elected to Congress in 1980. Now in his 16th term, he was considered a top choice in 2005 to take the Majority Leader position, which was instead given to Roy Blunt reportedly because of Dreier’s more moderate views. Dreier has been chairman of the House Rules Committee -- which regulates House floor proceedings, debates and votes -- since 1999.

Last summer, the area around the corner of Los Angeles and Sherman Avenues in Monrovia was designated as a Neighborhood of the Year 2011 by Neighborhood USA. This is a distinct honor as only four such neighborhoods were so recognized by NUSA. Ten signs designating that distinction were finally erected this week and were unveiled at

a brief ceremony last Tuesday. Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz (with the assistance of the Council’s Tallest Member, Tom Adams) unveiled one of ten signs which acknowledge the neighborhood’s distinction. She praised the efforts of the community to turn itself around. The designation as a

Neighborhood of the Year coming to Monrovia is especially exciting as the other such distinctions went to much larger cities, Long Beach, California and Fort Worth, Texas. “This is a little like the mouse who roared,” said Monrovia’s Dan McConnell. McConnell, who oversees the Monrovia Area Partnership Program for the city

also spoke at the unveiling. He called out the names of the individuals who had worked to change the neighborhood praising the clean up programs and community events they had planned. He also noted that many of them had gone through the city’s leadership academy and that one such academy graduate, Larry Spicer, now sat on the City Council. It is important to remember what this neighborhood had been only a few years ago. Gangs terrorized the residents. Drive-by shoots were not uncommon and a murder had been committed there. “Last summer this community held a neighborhood potluck and movie night at the corner of Los Angeles and Sherman,” McConnell said. “I stood out there at ten o’clock at night with the residents that evening and was struck by the fact that just a few years before they would have been afraid to be outside their homes at that time of night. “The residents turned that neighborhood around,” he said.

Program Grants to Provide El Monte Homeowners with Repairs Funding As a way to assist homeowners improve their property with necessary repairs and to attract more families to the City, the El Monte City Council approved the implementation of the Calhome Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Act and First Time Homebuyer Program. The City’s application for a $1-million grant was approved by the State of California Housing and Community Development Department. Under the City’s General Plan and 5-Year Consolidated Plan, the City is dedicated to preserving and improving the existing housing stock and increase the supply of affordable rental and home ownership opportunities. Under the Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Program, assistance will be provided through deferred

payment loans to income-eligible El Monte homeowners to finance the cost of repairs that will ensure that their homes are well designed, healthy, safe, sanitary, and comply with the City’s Municipal Code. “The Owner Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Program is an important step for our communities,” El Monte Mayor Andre Quintero said. “Eligible homeowners will be able to receive the financial assistance they need to improve their properties, rather than having to go through the insensitive approach of code enforcement. The improvement of properties makes things better for the entire community, and each neighborhood.” The goal of the First Time Homebuyer Program is to provide down payment assistance that will allow quali-

fied families to purchase a home located within the City limits. Assistance will be provided in the form of a deferred payment “silent” second loan. This funding provides “gap’ financing toward the purchase price and closing cost of affordable housing units that will be occupied by the homebuyers as their primary residence. The City Council is hoping to create opportunities for more families to move into El Monte. “This is a very personal issue with me,” Quintero said. “We had affordable housing in the early 1980s when my family first moved to El Monte. My parents received a balloon payment to help them get a house. As a result, we were able to live the American Dream. We want that dream to come true for other families.”

Lives Remembered Britta Lisa Margarita Anderson 1919-2012: Former Santa Fe School Teacher Britta Lisa Margarita Anderson was born on January 27, 1919 to two Swedish immigrants Elin and Nestor Anderson. Britta also had one sister, Ellen Marie Anderson. After her education at Redlands University, Britta landed her first teaching job at the seaside town of Dana Point, California. As Britta Albert she gave birth to a son Michael and daughter Kathy. To her children she passed on her love for the ocean, animals, and her Swedish heritage. Britta was fluent in Swedish as a second language. She also passed on important lessons. I can still hear her say, “If you’re going to do something, do it right!” For many years she taught first grade at Santa Fe School in Monrovia, California; where she also played piano for the school music programs. When she retired, she married a gem of a man and her true forever love,

Len Martin, a longtime resident of Livermore, California. Len worked many years for Livermore Laboratory - and even sold them a good bit of their land!

Britta and Len spent 42 years making their home together, traveling, and taking care of each other. Britta was an avid stamp collector. She also regularly chopped up cheese, nuts

etc. making a suet for the birds that flocked to their backyard. A number of cats also found their way to the Martin backyard - as if they passed the word on that this was the best place to be to get ‘adopted’ by a couple who would love and take care of them. Britta is survived by her husband Len Martin, her son Michael Albert (and wife Jeanette), daughter Kathy Reid (and husband Dave), and her grandchild Dawn Noel Reid. Britta’s love of music, piano playing and language skills seem to have been passed down to her granddaughter who majored in Linguistics and now teaches over 50 children piano and love of music. (She also passed on her baby grand piano to Dawn, along with countless pieces of sheet music!) Another thing about “Mom” - no one could give a better HUG. We miss her.

Proposed Mars Mission, ‘InSight’ A proposed Discovery mission concept led by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., to investigate the formation and evolution of terrestrial planets by studying the deep interior of Mars now has a new name, InSight. InSight stands for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport and is a partnership involving JPL, Lockheed Martin Space Systems, the French Space Agency (CNES), the German Aerospace Center (DLR), and other NASA

centers. The previous name for the proposal was GEMS (GEophysical Monitoring Station). NASA requested that name be reserved for an astrophysics mission known as the Gravity and Extreme Magnetism Small Explorer, which was already in development. “We chose the name InSight because we would literally peer into the interior of Mars to map out its structure,” said JPL’s Bruce Banerdt, the principal investigator. “With our geophysical instruments we will be able to see right through

to the center of Mars, and will be able to map out how deeply the crust extends as well as the size of the core.” InSight is one of three missions vying to be selected for flight in the Discovery Program, a series of NASA missions to understand the solar system by exploring planets, moons, and small bodies such as comets and asteroids. All three mission teams are required to submit concept study reports to NASA on March 19. For more information, visit http://insight.jpl.nasa. gov/.

Earl William LaLone Sierra Madre Native Passes at 86 Earl William LaLone, 86, of Sierra Madre, California, passed away at County Villa Health Services in Duarte, California, at 7:30 pm on Sunday, February 12, 2012, after a year long battle with cancer. Earl was born to Fred LaLone and Marguerite Vega LaLone on May 5, 1925 in Sierra Madre; he was the youngest of 11 children. Earl is survived by his wife Margaret, daughter Marsha, son Christopher, grandson Philip, granddaughter Melissa, grandson Travis (and his family) and granddaughter Heather (and her family). He is also survived by his sisters Alice McCarron and Francis Finley. He graduated from Monrovia High School in 1943 and immediately joined the United States Army Air Corps and served to the end of World War II as an airplane mechanic. After the war, Earl joined the California National Guard and again served his country, after being called up during the Korean War. Earl married Margaret Stevens LaLone on November 10, 1950…they were married for over 61 years. While raising their children, their home on Ramona in Sierra Madre served as an important gathering place for

the greater LaLone family, helping to keep a very large family together for decades. Earl was a manager at Florence Ceramics, where

he worked for 25 years. He worked for many more years at an electronics company and then at an oil Company. He was a founding member of the Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team where he participated in hundreds of rescues over 22 years. Earl also dedicated over 15 years to help with the youth baseball program in town, serving as Little League President and manager of several Minor, Major, and Pony/ colt League teams. He was active in renovating Heasley Field and the construction of Dapper Field.

He was recognized for his “Outstanding service” to the city in 1973 when he was named Sierra Madre “Citizen of the Year”. Earl was an avid hunter and fisherman who hunted and fished in nearly every state in the west. If he had a favorite place to hunt and fish, it was in Modoc County in Northern California. He also loved to travel with Margaret in their Ford Pickup and Lance camper. Of the 48 states in the continental U.S., they traveled through 46 of them, including a 2 month stay in Alaska. Earl loved his family and he placed a great deal of importance in his friendships. If there were two positive traits that stood out over all others, it was Earl’s ability to connect with people and his desire to give. Earl’s life made a significant impact on the lives of the entire LaLone family and he will be dearly missed. On Saturday, March 24, from 1:00 to 5:00p.m. , a gathering of friends will be held at the home of Linda Canzoneri, 121 S. Lima, Sierra Madre. In lieu of flowers, Donations may be made to the Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team in honor of Earl LaLone.

Pasadena City College Wins National Bellwether Award for Innovation The Community College Futures Assembly (CCFA) recently presented Pasadena City College with the prestigious Bellwether Award. Established in 1995, the Bellwether Awards are given annually in three categories to community colleges with outstanding and innovative programs or practices. PCC won in the Instructional Programs and Services category for its “Math Jam: Setting FirstYear Students on the Right Pathway” program. The two-week, no-cost summer program provides a creative, engaging, no-stress

environment in which firstyear community college students can experience math success before beginning college. The transitionto-college program offers innovative mathinstruction, structured supplemental support, and orientation-tocollege activities. “We’re just honored and excited to get this award,” said Brock Klein, the program’s director. “I think it really represents the hard work of lots of different groups on campus. The administration has been very supportive, math faculty has been actively involved, and the awesome

student tutors are the key to making this program a success.” The CCFA, now in its 18th year, convenes annually as an independent national policy forum for key opinion leaders to work as a “think tank” in identifying critical issues facing the future of community colleges, and to recognize Bellwether Finalist colleges as trendsetting institutions. For more information on the Bellwether Award, please visit http://futures. education.ufl.edu/. For more information on Math Jam, please contact Klein at (626) 585-3049.
