Pasadena Says ‘No’ to Several Proposed 710 Routes Hot Temperatures and Tempers Lead to Sweltering, Contentious Council Meeting Monday Evening

BY TERRY MILLER To thunderous applause Pasadena city council voted unanimously Monday night to oppose three proposed routes for the 710 Freeway extension. “ LAMTA – It’s back to the drawing board!” said one resident after hearing council’s decision. The council opposes a tunnel connecting the 10 Freeway to the 134 Freeway, a surface route that could have increased the width of Avenue 64 . #710freeway City Council members questioned Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials about the proposed 710 Freeway extension routes Monday in front 800 extremely hot and angry residents many of whom displayed signs opposing the controversial extension that has been in the works in Pasadena for years. Some residents have claimed that council members didn’t listen to their objections. They heard Monday night. The meeting got off to arduous start with residents who were in an overflow

Dorothy's Place A Happy Ending

By Dorothy Denne It has been a very busy week and a deadline approaches. Please allow me to share a story. An old prospector shuffled into the town of El Indio, Texas leading an old, tired mule. The old man headed straight for the only saloon in town to clear his parched throat. He walked up to the saloon and tied his old mule to the hitch rail. As he stood there, brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other. The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed saying, “Hey old man, have you ever danced?”

The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, “No, I never did dance... never really wanted to.” A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, “Well, you old fool, you’re gonna dance now,” and started shooting at the old man’s feet. The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe blown off, started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet. Everybody was laughing, fit to be tied. When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon. The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a double-barreled shotgun and cocked both hammers. The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air. The crowd stopped laughing immediately. The young gunslinger heard the sounds too, and he turned around very slowly. The silence was

almost deafening. The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin barrels. The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man’s hands as he quietly said, “Son, have you ever kissed a mule’s ass?” The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, “No sir...but...I’ve always wanted to.” There are a few lessons for us all here: Never be arrogant. Don’t waste ammunition. Whiskey makes you think you’re smarter than you are. Always, always make sure you know who has the power. Don’t mess with old men, they didn’t get old by being stupid. I just love a story with a happy ending, don’t you?

Open Letter to City Council and El Monte Citizens: I am opposed to adding another tax on the citizens of El Monte. To say it is for health and obesity is shameful. It really is about “MORE TAXES.” We should be trying to reduce our debt and find ways to limit our spending. Our state and our federal government are trying to SPEND enough money to

get us out of our down turn. But it does not work. The state especially has hurt us by taking more and more money to try and fix their situation but it has made their situation worse and has hurt cities and schools. Some thoughts I have had, is to put “caps” or limits on our budgets. We set a budget but do not ad-

here to it. We should not give advances on business and conference expenses. Expenses should be submitted along with receipts. Maybe we should update our travel and conference expenses. Heny J. Velasco El Monte City Treasurer

These Olympic Games can be said to be the year of the woman athlete. Women have earned twothirds of all the medals won by the United States of America. They have won gold medals in track and field, swimming, beach volleyball, boxing, judo, water polo, rowing, basketball, soccer, shooting and more. This is truly an historic accomplishment for the wonderful Olympians and many live here in beautiful Southern California. We are blessed to have these athletes inspire our children and all of us. As a track coach I was very impressed with the 4 x 100 relay where the women broke the world record. Many of these women have tried for many years to accomplish this. One Olympian is Allyson Felix. She trained for 8 years to break this record. Other girls on the track and field team have gone through many challenges including financial difficulties, having children, and trying to find a career in addition to track to accomplish their goals. One of the things that we learn from the wonderful 2012 Olympians is NEVER GIVE UP or as Winston Churchill, the famous prime minister of Great Britain said during World War II as the Nazis were invading Britain, “NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, GIVE UP”. The quality of a great champion is PERSEVERANCE. These women champions with their remarkable accomplishments are role

models for our younger generation. If you remember in the Olympic Opening Ceremonies the older generation of torch bearers gave the younger generation the torches to run around the Olympic stadium and to finally set the Olympic flames on fire. This great symbolism showed that we are not living in the past but we are moving forward to a new generation of accomplishments. Our younger generation needs these positive role models like the US Olympic soccer team. Many of these women are very happy to share their experiences and the valuable lessons they learned in London with our children and all of us. The Olympics come every four years. We have some major stars that will be there in Rio in 2016. They include Missy Frank-

lin, a great swimmer who won four gold medals and a bronze. Our basketball team had many superstars that have said they would like to give it another go in 2016. Some of the gymnasts may be there like Gabby Douglas. Many on the soccer team have said they will return. There are too many others to mention in this short article. How do the Olympics impact your life? 1. Are you staying healthy? 2. Do you have positive goals? 3. Have you stopped eating junk food? 4. Do you have positive thoughts? 5. Do you workout? 6. Are you thanking God daily? 7. Let these Olympics inspire you to a positive, healthy lifestyle. YOU ARE A WINNER! Coach Sneider can be reached at harrysneider@earthlink.net or 626-355-8964.

Governor Brown Launches Climate Change - Just the Facts Website to Refute Global Warming Deniers Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today used the occasion of the annual Tahoe Summit to launch a new website, Climate Change: Just The Facts, that documents the dangerous effects of global warming and calls on those who still deny its existence to “wake up and honestly face the facts.” “Global warming’s impact on Lake Tahoe is well documented. It is just one example of how, after decades of pumping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, humanity is getting dangerously close to the point of no return,” said Governor Brown. “Those who still deny global warming’s existence should wake up and honestly face the facts.” The impacts of climate change are clear and global. America is seeing dramatic increases in food prices as a direct result of the worst drought in a half century. According to the National Center for Atmospheric Research, the percentage of the Earth’s surface suffering drought has more than doubled since

the 1970s. Last year, Arctic sea ice was at the lowest level ever recorded. Satellite images show that Arctic summer sea ice has decreased nearly nine percent per decade since 1979. Last week a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences showed that events like the Russian heat wave of 2010 and the European heat wave of 2003 would likely not have happened without global warming caused by greenhouse gases. Global warming’s impact on Lake Tahoe is well documented. In 2010, scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory confirmed that over the last 25 years, the world’s largest lakes, including Lake Tahoe, have been steadily warming, some by as much as four degrees Fahrenheit. This is seven times faster than air temperatures have risen over the same period in some cases. That same year, researchers at UC Davis studied the impacts of climate change on the Lake Tahoe

basin and concluded that there will be a continuing shift from snowfall to rain, earlier snowmelt and more runoff; an increase in drought severity, especially toward the end of the century; and a dramatic increase in flood magnitude in the middle third of the century. In 2008, a UC Davis study predicted that climate change will irreversibly alter water circulation in Lake Tahoe, radically changing the conditions for plants and fish in the lake. In 2005, researchers found that Lake Tahoe is warming at almost twice the rate of the world’s oceans because of global climate change. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary there are still recalcitrant skeptics who ignore the findings of climate scientists and assert that global warming is not a problem. The Climate Change: Just The Facts website debunks the claims of deniers and documents the serious impact of climate change on California – its economy, environment and public health. The site details:

How rising global temperatures have far-reaching consequences for Californians, including sea level rise, more frequent and hotter heat waves, a declining water supply and large, intense wildfires. How every major scientific organization in the United States with relevant expertise has confirmed the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s finding that there is a 90 percent probability human activities are causing global warming. California’s groundbreaking efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for the unavoidable effects of global warming which are now irreversible. Governor Brown has pressed for increasing investment in renewable energy, efficiency and reduced dependency on fossil fuels. Last year, he signed legislation to increase California’s use of renewable energy to 33 percent by 2020. A link to the website can be found here: http:// www.opr.ca.gov/climatechangefacts.

Monrovia Starbucks Re-Opens with a New Look

Sow into the Lives of the Machao Orphanange by Eric J. Riddle

-Courtesy Photo

After a two week closure, the Starbucks Coffee at 621 W. Huntington Dr, Monrovia (next to Armstrong Gardens) has reopened with a warm, fresh, inviting new design. Regular coffee enthusiasts will notice the new slate floors, the carved wood counters, and the big community table. Even the restroom received a top to bottom makeover. Service upgrades behind the counter include new and improved brewing stations placed close to the register and set up

specifically to make service faster and more personable than ever before. “We don’t have to turn our backs on customers or walk away to pour a cup of coffee anymore,” says Shift Supervisor Melissa Grabowski. “We even had the counters lowered so we can connect with our customers, which I especially like that we can make our little ones feel special when they get their hot cocoas or frappuccinos.” Assistant Manager Sally Gomez adds “we strive to make our store a place

people can relax with a cup of fresh coffee and food that is separate from the office and away from home. Starbucks wants to be the third place in your life.” Starbucks corporate mission is to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup, one neighborhood at a time. The company is on pace to remodel over 1,500 stores in 2012. The Huntington Drive store is open daily 5:00 AM – 9:30 PM (Fri and Sat until 10:00 PM, and Sun open at 5:30 AM – 9:30 PM).

Everyday is an open house:

“MACHAO,” the Makueni Christian Home for Assisting Orphans, is a faith-based organization formed by seven Christians of the Africa Inland Church (AIC) in the Wote Division of the Makueni District in Kenya. I became aware of the organization when the Machao organizer, Dr. Carolyn Rowley began working with my mother, the Pasadena Police Department’s lead Lieutenant Phlunte Riddle. They constructed a team, including myself, to travel to Kenya to assist with development efforts. Our mission commenced July 14, and required a 25-hour plane ride upon reaching the destination of Nairobi, Kenya. Once arrived, The Machao Orphanage’s Pastor, Dr. Joseph Matunga, greeted us with many of the orphaned children, as we traveled to Makueni. The main focus of the mission was to continue

progress with the agriculture sustainability of Machao. This phase consisted of purchasing and constructing a greenhouse and chicken coop during the 2 weeks of our stay. This was essential because all of the food consumed by the children is grown and harvested at the facility. Before the sustainability project began, the children were eating one meal a day that consisted of mainly grains. With the addition of fresh water and additional vegetation crops, the kids are now able to eat multiple times a day with a bit more variation in diet. The addition of the greenhouse will mean being able to add to that variety and safety of vegetation from the elements, critters and vandals. The chicken coop houses 100 chickens and offers the children a steady diet of protein, through the eggs produced. Any excess vegetation and eggs will be sold at local

markets, and profits will go directly to enhance the lives at Machao. We spent most of the days working on our sustainability projects, while the children spent long hours at school. Over the weekend, we were finally able to spend significant time with the children at the Machao orphanage who despite their impoverishment, were rich in spirit and radiated with joy. We were able to present the 42 orphans with care packages that were donated on their behalves. These packages consisted of basic hygiene items such as toilet paper, toothbrushes, and deodorant. Additional gifts were donated as well including soccer equipment, suits, and crafts, all of which were received with great appreciation. While donations and sponsors have contributed to enhancing these lives, there’s so much more that can be done with basic funding. In the short twoweek trip we were able to greatly increase the means for consistent meals. With additional funds, we will be able to focus on facility enhancements like running water, bedding, transportation, etc. The concert is a fantastic opportunity to sow into these children’s lives. All proceeds go directly toward enhancing life on the Machao Orphanage. I look forward to returning to Machao in the future to aid in their continuous expansion and experience the deep gratitude that these orphans have for the impact we’ve made in their daily life.

Duarte Selected Finalist for L.A. County’s Most Business-Friendly City Award For the third consecutive year the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) has selected the City of Duarte as one of five finalists for the Most Business-Friendly City in Los Angeles County award in the category of cities with a population of 60,000 and under. The winning city will be announced at the 17th annual Eddy Awards on Nov. 8 at the Beverly Hilton. LAEDC created the “business-friendly” award category in 2006 to recognize cities with the County that are proactively promoting business-friendly programs and services. “You are to be congratulated for your leadership and your city council and staff should take great pride in the role you are all playing to keep quality jobs in L.A. County,” said, LAEDC President and CEO William C. Allen, in announcing Duarte’s selection as a finalist. In receiving the news, Duarte City Manager, Darrell George said, “It is rewarding to be recognized by your colleagues and economic development professionals for this honor. Business retention, expansion, and attraction has been and will remain at the top of our priority list even as we confront the challenges of difficult economic times, staff reductions, and the State’s abolishment of redevelopment agencies.” Finalists in the category, which in addition to Duarte include the cities of Commerce, El Segundo, Glendora, and La Mirada, were

selected based on: Demonstrated commitment to economic development as a priority. Excellence in programs and services designed to facilitate business entry, expansion, and retention. Economic development activity over the past three years. Competitive business tax rates and fee structures. Availability of economic incentives. Effective communication with and about business clients. The City of Duarte has a pro-business attitude mindset that is shared by its entire staff and is driven by the overarching desire to encourage economic development, bolster the City’s economy, and create a better Duarte for residents and employees alike. In the past year, Duarte has amended its Filming Ordinance becoming one of the first cities to adopt the California Film Commission’s Model Ordinance and Guidelines for Best Practices in Film Regulations and Policies. In response to the voices of local struggling businesses, the City adopted a 12-month suspension of Code Enforcement on selected temporary sign regulations; and the City Council entered into a contract with “Nextdoor” to establish a private social networking site for local neighborhoods to foster neighbor and citywide social communication that also provides communication between residents and the local business community. Duarte has set the standard that every employee

be dedicated to the economic development goals of the City, with the Planning Department staff acting as economic development liaison for businesses desiring assistance. The City Manager, Community Development Director and other key staff outreach to the business community through regular business visits. Duarte supports quarterly business seminars on topics such as business management and website developments, hosts job fairs that focus on local businesses and workforce development, networking breakfasts and provides adequate staffing for its one-stop permit center in order to streamline the development process. These city-funded services provide Duarte businesses with critical assistance and exposure as an added benefit offered at little to no cost. The LAEDC also announced finalists in the Business-Friendly City competition in the 60,000 population and over category. They are the cities of Baldwin Park, Glendale, Pico Rivera, Santa Monica, and Whittier. The LAEDC is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1981 whose mission is to attract, retain, and grow businesses and jobs for the regions of Los Angeles County. Since 1996, the LAEDC has helped attract or retain over 175,000 jobs, providing more than $8.5 billion in direct economic impact from salaries and $145 million in annual tax revenue benefit to Los Angeles County.

Huntington Memorial Hospital Launches Institute for Nursing Excellence and Innovation Huntington Memorial Hospital announced information of an Institute for Nursing Excellence and Innovation, designed to further enhance training and preparation of Huntington Hospital’s nursing workforce. Concurrent with the institute’s creation, the hospital has announced a $1 million leadership gift from Hospital Board Chairman Jim Rothenberg and his wife Anne to help launch the initiative. “We are so grateful to Jim and Anne for their vision and leadership in this and so many other areas,” said Hospital President and CEO Stephen A. Ralph. “Jim’s generosity will help jumpstart our institute and help make sure that patients at Huntington Hospital are cared for by a nursing staff that is fully prepared to respond to the myriad of medical challenges and personal responsibilities they face.” Last year Huntington Hospital became one of

only 6 percent of hospitals in the United States to achieve Magnet recognition – the “gold standard” for nursing, which recognizes outstanding patient care, overall nursing excellence and innovation in nursing practice. The new Institute for Nursing Excellence and Innovation will build upon that foundation and, according to Ralph, help assure that nurses remain “the very heart of patient care at Huntington Hospital and an essential part of the hospital’s mission of medical excellence.” While still in a development stage, some components of the institute are already clear. One is the establishment of a Nurses Scholars Program – a second generation of a program that has been met with great success at the hospital. Here, new nurses or nurses just joining the Huntington team are matched with seasoned members of Huntington

Hospital’s nursing team who provide one-on-one mentoring, counsel and support. In addition to preceptors for new nursing graduates, the institute will offer specialty training programs in critical care, emergency medicine, obstetrics, neonatal intensive care, surgery, pediatric intensive care and other areas. Through the institute the hospital will also expand its nursing education offerings in order to increase the number of nurses with degrees and with specialty certification in their fields. In particular, the hospital will launch an on-site Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program in collaboration with Western Governor’s University. Nursing education will also be supported through encouraging – and through the Institute helping to fund – individual nurses to take part in projects that result in presenting and speaking at national conferences.

Tibetan Buddhist Monks to Create Sand Mandala

AN ADVISOR WHOSE APPROACH IS

BASED ON KNOW-HOW. AND KNOW YOU. MERRILL LYNCH WELCOMES ELLEN CHIANG, OUR NEWEST FINANCIAL ADVISOR. Ellen Chiang Financial Advisor (626) 898-1036

Merrill Lynch 801 West Huntington Drive Suite 100 Arcadia, CA 91007

You want an advisor who can help you realize your goals. Someone with a firm grasp of the financial landscape and a deep understanding of you. With six years of financial experience, Ellen can help you develop a customized strategy that considers where you want to be.

On Wednesday, September 5 at 10:30 a.m., the monks will commence with a 30-minute Blessing Ceremony that includes chanted mantras and music. Immediately following the ceremony, they will begin creating the elaborate design using colored sand. With a funnelshaped metal tool called a chakpur, the monks can place the sand grain by grain by moving a metal wand back and forth across the tool’s grooved surface. On Sunday, September 9, admission will be free all day in honor of the monks, and all are welcome to attend the Dissolution Ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Before the ceremony, visitors are encouraged to observe the monks as they complete their work. During this cere-

mony the mandala is blessed a final time and the grains of sand are swept into a pile, erasing the once-beautiful work of art as a reminder of our own impermanence. Some of the sand is given to those who are present, as a small blessing for their home or gardens. The remainder is taken to the ocean where it is poured into the moving water, which according to Tibetan Buddhist belief blesses all the beings living there, carrying prayers and blessings throughout the world. The sand mandala is an ancient art form that is unique to Tibetan Buddhism. The artwork is made by placing fine sand, which is ground and dyed by hand, into an intricate design of the world in its divine form. It is intended to serve as a map

for meditation by which the ordinary human mind is transformed into the enlightened mind. During this visit, the monks will create a mandala known as the “Buddha of Compassion.” The Drepung Loseling Phukhang Khangsten was founded by the Venerable Tsangtso Samten in Lhasa, the capital city of Tibet, approximately 500 years ago. It was one of the largest Khangtsen (sub-monasteries) of the Drepung Loseling Monastery and at one time was home to over 12,000 monks. Much of this was destroyed during the Chinese occupation of Tibet in 1959, and was subsequently re-established in 1976 in Mundgod, Karnataka State, in Southern India where 300 monks live today.

plicated, far reaching and very heated . Many in the community have said that the city council hasn’t been tough enough on the project or its planners at Metro. “These alternatives would be like dropping a nuclear bomb on southwest Pasadena,” Councilman Steve Madison said

Monday. Arguably the least popular figure Monday night was Metro’s 710 project manager, Michelle Smith. She said Metro plans to go back to the drawing board and outreach efforts in the remaining years of the study. Deeply dismayed residents made no bones

about their feelings Monday and that, topped off with extremely warm temperatures, tempers flew in all directions often interupting speakers on both sides. Mayor Bogaard did his best to quell the incoming tide of discontent throughout the meeting.

Foothill Unity to Help 1500 Low Income Children Get Ready for School Thursday Students k-12 will be treated to Back to School items courtesy of the community through the effeorts of Foothill Unity Center for its 14th Annual Back to School event at Santa Anita this Thursday Aug 16. The entire community shares in this annual effort, with more than 400 volunteers from businesses, schools and community groups. Another 150 cosmetologists and cosmetology students from Citrus College will furnish the children with haircuts and manicures. In addition, teachers and students from the USC School of Dentistry and Western University School of Optometry will be on hand to provide free dental and vision screenings to all children.

the Rover” to ITT’s Deep Space Explorations will be present; special craft projects by Paint N’Play will be available; fun games and activities by CapitalSource Bank and Azusa Pacific University and many, many more Foothill Unity Center acts as a lifeline for very low income individuals and families who are struggling to survive. 38% of

them are children. Their service area covers eleven cities in the San Gabriel Valley area of Los Angeles County: Monrovia, Arcadia, Duarte, Bradbury, Pasadena, Altadena, South Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Azusa, Baldwin Park and Irwindale. Clients are often unemployed, employed at wages too low to provide for their families, on welfare, or facing a temporary

crisis. They also serve seniors, homeless, disabled, emancipated foster youth, victims of domestic violence, students on limited incomes and individuals just released from prison. In 2010, with support from the community and a large group of dedicated volunteers, they served 12,644 unduplicated persons (4,606 families).

San Gabriel Superintendent Spells Out Priorities for School Year The new school year for the San Gabriel Unified School District begins its first day of instruction on Monday, Aug. 20, which also marks recently-appointed Superintendent Dr. David Yoshihara’s first school year with San Gabriel. Yoshihara was appointed Superintendent by the Governing Board at its Jun. 26 meeting and assumed the duties of his office on Jul. 1. According to Yoshihara, the single largest issue facing San Gabriel Unified this school year, as well as other school districts throughout the state, is a continued reduction in funding that will, bottom line, impact students. He compares education to a rubber band, saying that it can certainly stretch to hold more and accommodate more, but its elasticity is not infinite. “At some point, we must prioritize education ahead of other important issues,” Yoshihara said. “Failure to do this will continue to cause us to slide relative to other nations who have invested heavily in their educational infrastructure for the long-term returns that it will bring.” Prioritizing issues to receive a return on an educational investment is much more than a working strategy for Yoshihara, it also accounts for his extensive experience in public education service. In his 18-year career, he has served in many positions, including teacher, grant director, site administrator, director of instructional support, chief human resources officer, and chief business official. Teaching in high school, community colleges, vocational institutions, private colleges, and state universities in subjects ranging from mathematics to graduate programs, Yoshihara recognizes the directional necessity of San Gabriel Unified’s Educational Master Plan. The Governing Board on Jun. 17 highlighted its support for the plan’s four educational priorities, specifically addressing and prioritizing students’ needs. According to Yoshihara, the four educational priorities include implementation of

by jim e. winburn Common Core State Standards, reducing the “achievement gap,” Response To Intervention Strategies to address all learners, and reducing incidents of bullying on campuses. “Each of these is comprehensive in their own right,” he said. “Taken together, we have the ability to put our District in a much better place academically and socially.” But still, it’s hard to get to that “better place” if the money isn’t there. Educating more than 6,000 kindergarten through twelfth grade students on a traditional calendar schedule, the San Gabriel Unified School District is host to many student programs and extra curricular activities that depend on proper funding. However, Yoshihara says money is not necessarily the answer. In fact, he says that it is “foolhardy” to assume that long-standing school programs can be maintained on roughly 70 percent of the dollars that existed at the peak of school funding from 2007-08. “On a macro level, this will occur when the people of this state indicate that education must be a priority for them,” he said. “On a micro level, it required greater commitment to our schools. I believe in the saying that great parental involvement makes great schools.” As far as solutions to increasing parents’ involvement in school activities, Yoshihara approaches this from many different levels. He encourages parents to first take an interest in their children’s areas of instruction. He says parents can read to their children at night or find other ways to encourage the virtues of learning, showing children that “the reward is often delayed and well worth the sacrifice.” “Struggling through some of these with our children demonstrates that we, as parents, are in it for the long haul and through perseverance, we increase our likelihood for success,” Yoshihara said. Yet another way for parents to take an active

interest in the success of children’s school activities is to attend school events that are designed to celebrate student performance and achievement. “We can all harken to the days when we sang in our first school choir or performed in our first school play,” he said. “We may not have said a word, but parents arrived in droves, camera in hand, to share in the nervousness we all felt performing to a room full of strangers. This is the initial momentum of parent involvement in schools.” Yoshihara also said that the district is committed to explore new ways to provide parents greater access to follow their children’s learning. He mentioned such tools as online grades, teacherdriven blogs, regular website updates, school newsletters, and even “Tweets” from the Superintendent as some of the ways to bring parents into the academic fold. “With this communication must come follow-through,” he said. “Parents and staff alike must utilize this greater knowledge to let our children know that we care about their learning, we are interested in what they are doing, and that we will assist them in being successful this coming year.” The new Superintendent believes everyone in the community is responsible for the success of a child’s education - even the news media. After all, public education is all about public access to information that shapes a community’s growth and maturity. “As Superintendent, it will be my goal to share many of the great accomplishments that occur in our schools every day,” he said. “To read news stories that celebrate what schools do right will be an initial area of focus for me. … Every day, California educates 6.3 million students to someday run the world’s ninth largest economy (used to be sixth). I have to believe that there are many more successful, newsworthy stories in those 6.3 million students than the latest scandal plaguing our schools.”

where they can contribute to our society.” On June 15th, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano announced that DREAM students – students

2013 Breeders’ Cup World Championships to Be Held at Santa Anita Park Championships Return to West Coast for Second Consecutive Year NBC to Broadcast Breeders' Cup Classic in Primetime The Breeders’ Cup announced today that the 30th Breeders’ Cup World Championships will be held at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., on Friday, November 1 and Saturday, November 2, 2013. The Breeders’ Cup World Championships, Thoroughbred racing’s most prestigious global event, annually attracts the best horses from around the world. The Breeders’ Cup consists of 15 races with purses totaling more than $25 million over the two-day event. Santa Anita, which will be the site of this year’s Breeders’ Cup on November 2-3, has hosted the Breeders’ Cup World Championships five times, most recently back-to-back editions in 2008 and 2009, both of which set new records for attendance and wagering. The 2013 Breeders’ Cup will be televised on the NBC Sports Network, and the $5 million Breed-

ers’ Cup Classic will be shown live and in primetime on NBC from 8-9 p.m. ET. The NBC Sports Network is also televising this year’s Breeders’ Cup with primetime coverage of the Classic on NBC, Nov. 3. “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Santa Anita, to celebrate the 30th edition of our Championships in Southern California and for the unprecedented opportunity to showcase the Breeders’ Cup Classic in primetime for a second consecutive year. We are equally looking forward to bringing racing fans a world-class event at one of the world’s greatest racing venues,” said Breeders’ Cup President and CEO Craig Fravel. “Southern California and the greater Los Angeles community are always exceptional hosts for fans and horsemen alike from the event’s launch in 1984 and, most recently, at the 2008 and 2009 World Champion-

ships.” Mike Rogers, President of The Stronach Group’s Racing Division said: “We are pleased the Breeders’ Cup has chosen

to stay at Santa Anita for the 2013 World Championships. This underlines the commitment of The Stronach Group to present world-class racing at its

venues around the country. Santa Anita’s back-to-back runnings of the Breeders’ Cup in 2008 and 2009 produced some of the top performances in the event’s history and we are looking forward to again showcasing the world’s greatest athletes in the entertainment capital of the world.” The 2013 running of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships marks the 10th time the event will be held in Southern California over its 30-year history. According to a study by Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation, the Breeders’ Cup generated in excess of $60 million in economic impact in the Los Angeles area in both 2008 and 2009. Next year’s running will mark the seventh time that Santa Anita will host the Breeders’ Cup, after hosting the event in 1986, 1993, 2003, 2008 and 2009 and this year. “We are very proud that California has once again been selected to host the Breeders’ Cup and we will take all the steps necessary to ensure that the Breeders’ Cup this November and next year at Santa Anita will be of the highest caliber for our racing fans and horsemen in our state and for our guests attending from around the world,” said Keith Brackpool, Chairman of the California Horse Racing Board. “The Thoroughbred

Owners of California is happy to support the return of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships to California and Santa Anita Park,” said TOC Chairman Mike Pegram. “In addition to providing a much-needed boost to the state and local economies, the event gives California horsemen an opportunity to compete against the world’s best at one of our sport’s most outstanding racetracks.” Among the most memorable moments in Breeders’ Cup history, the great Zenyatta provided fans with one of racing’s most exhilarating performances, when she became the first female to win the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic, climaxing the 2009 World Championships at Santa Anita. In addition to the then record attendance of 96,496 and record on-track handle of $19,208,012, the 2009 races attracted the most international starters in event history with 34 participants from outside the U.S. and Canada. Breeders’ Cup officials indicated that no decisions have been made on host sites beyond 2013 and that the organization remains open to visiting markets that can accommodate its two-day event during its traditional fall timing, provide world-class hospitality for participants and guests and showcase the world’s best Thoroughbred racing.

Pasadena Museum of History Takes on Unusual Exhibit 35 Years of Doo Dah Memorabilia This colorful, fun-filled exhibition will celebrate the wacky world of Doo Dah, named “America’s Best Parade” by none other than Reader’s Digest. The parade has garnered national and international attention, and spawned copy cat parades elsewhere, including in Columbus, Ohio, and Ocean City, New Jersey. Beginning in 1978, the “occasional” Doo Dah parade took place sporadically: changing dates, season, and location in its characteristically casual – and some might say – disorganized way. The parade has always been controversial. Its detractors dismiss it as derivative, decry its inyour-face sexual and political humor, and are embarrassed to have it take place in a city such as Pasadena. Its supporters, who include former President Bill Clinton, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, comedian Jay Leno, and actor Tom Hanks, say, yes…, that’s the point. No theme, no

rules. Just glorious creativity and raucous eccentricity. PMH’s exhibition What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been will include a photo wall of parade and crowd shots; vignettes of entries – including the Synchronized Precision March-

ing Briefcase Drill Team; costumes and memorabilia of various Queens and music groups. There may be more; but, to quote Ann Erdman, the Grand Marshal of the 2012 parade, “… this is Doo Dah after all, and one never knows…” The exhibition is curated by a consortium of

individuals including Tom Coston, Patricia Hurley, and Rosalind Schoen, all of Light Bringer Project, which sponsors the Parade; as well as Sue Behrens and Steve Vargas. Hours: 12:00 Noon to 5:00 pm Wednesdays through Sundays. Admission: $7 General; $6 Students & Seniors; Members & Children under 12 Free. Free admission every “Community Wednesday” to anyone who lives, works or is a student in any of the following local communities: Alhambra, Altadena, Arcadia, Bradbury, Duarte, Eagle Rock, El Sereno, Glendale, Highland Park, La Canada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Monrovia, Monterey Park, Pasadena, Rosemead, San Gabriel, San Marino, Sierra Madre, South Pasadena and Temple City. Please mention this offer and show some form of i.d. in the Museum Store. The Museum is located at 470 W. Walnut St. Pasadena.

Ask Dr. Sarkar MD Question 3: There are so many diets out there, I am confused. What should I be eating to lose weight? A.S., Monrovia, CA Answer: It is true that there are so many diets out there, that it is confusing for the consumer. What all diets have in common is that they reduce the number of calories that one consumes. You want to lose weight gradually not go on a crash diet and be on a ‘weight’ rollercoaster, and you want to slowly alter your eating habits, so that you live a healthier and more fulfilling life and keep the weight from coming back. Most women require between 1300 – 1800 calories a day.

First of all read labels on all foods you buy. Secondly, stop eating fast foods, which are high in calories and fat (for example a double cheeseburger, small fries and a coke at a popular fast food chain has about 900 calories with 50 grams of fat). Cut back on your fat intake, to no more than 30%. You should limit carbohydrates to about 50% and proteins to 20% of your total calorie intake. Eat more complex carbohydrates, which will fill you up more. Avoid foods that have a high glycemic index as these cause the blood sugar to increase rapidly and will lead to weight gain. Make healthy choices, for example have whole grain bread instead

of white bread, and avoid potatoes and sugar. Spread your calorie intake throughout the day. Eat 5-6 small meals and snacks rather than 2-3 big meals. Also it is important to drink lots of water – at least 8 glasses a day. Keep working at it and soon you will be losing weight and feel better about yourself. Dr. Sarkar MD is a Board-Certified physician in Pasadena, CA specializing in Weight Loss Medicine. You can e-mail your weight-loss questions to him at: info@pasadenaweightlossmd.com and he will answer them in this column. For more information visit www.pasadenaweightlossmd.com.

University of Phoenix Southern California Campus recently commemorated the graduation of more than 2,500 students earning associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees with a ceremony at the Citizens Business Bank Arena. Among the graduates was Karen Fuentes, a Monrovia resident, who graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Administration. “I would like to congratulate Karen Fuentes and the class of 2012. Every student graduating has succeeded because of their hard work and determination, and we are incredibly proud of them,” said University of Phoenix Southern California Cam-

pus Vice President, Kendra Angier. “Education in and of itself is not the end goal, but a means to achieve larger life goals where graduates can be successful and do even more to give back to their communities.” Fuentes, a Marine Corps veteran, is not only the first member of her family to graduate from college, but she is also the first in her family to graduate high school. Growing up, education was not discussed in Fuentes’ home, but as the oldest sibling to three sisters, she always strived to set a positive example and knew she wanted more for her own life. After high school, she enlisted in the military where

she proudly served the country for four years of active duty, four years as reservist and was deployed twice to Iraq. After an honorable discharge, Fuentes entered the Los Angeles Police Academy, and as another first became the first member in her family to become a police officer. “Being a Marine taught me to always do my best and never stop improving,” said Fuentes. “When I left the Marines and transitioned to the Los Angeles Police Department, I quickly realized the best way to advance myself professionally was through higher education. University of Phoenix was a great fit for me, because I could attend classes at the Pasadena Learning Center and study online while continuing to work full time.” Fuentes has continually proven to herself and her family that anything is possible with hard work and dedication. She proudly walked at the University’s commencement ceremony, and celebrated another significant family milestone by earning her bachelor’s degree. “Working full time and attending school is challenging, but absolutely worth the time and professional investment,” continued Fuentes. “I am so proud to call myself a Phoenix, and demonstrate to my family that any obstacle can be overcome with a goal and solid work ethic.”

More than 60,000 Urge California Boy Scouts’ Council to Reinstate Gay Employee Reject Boy Scouts' Anti-Gay Policy

More than 60,000 people have joined a popular campaign on Change. org urging California’s Golden Empire Council to reinstate 22-year-old Eagle Scout Tim Griffin as an employee at Camp Winton, and to reject the Boy Scouts of America’s policy barring gay Scouts and leaders. Griffin, who was the longest-serving employee at Camp Winton, says that he was fired from the Boy Scouts camp because of his sexual orientation. Alex Hayes, who was second in command as

Camp Winton’s Program Director, launched the campaign on Change.org after resigning in protest with nine other camp employees following Griffin’s removal. “For the past eight summers, Tim was loved not only by his fellow camp staffers, but all of the Boy Scouts who participated in programs he ran at the camp,” said Hayes, who launched the petition on Change.org. “More than 60,000 people have joined me, and the nine other employees who resigned, in

taking a stand for Tim. We want the Golden Empire Council to know that the Boy Scouts of America’s discriminatory policy has no place in our Scouting community.” After Griffin’s employment was terminated, the Golden Empire Council released a statement saying Griffin’s firing was “due to an issue with performance, violation of expected camp behavior and camp standards.” Hayes disagrees.

Pasadena PD

On July 7, two male adults walked into a commercial business located in the 3400 block of East Foothill Boulevard. The subjects were acting suspiciously, which drew the attention of the loss-prevention agent. One of the subjects grabbed a 32” flat screen TV and walked out of the store. The suspect was challenged by the loss-prevention agent; however, the suspect reached into his waistband, simulated a gun, and threatened the agent. Pasadena Police officers responded to the robbery, however, the suspects had fled the location. The case was assigned to Alonzo Wilkins, who started his investigation. Alonzo identified the suspects involved in the Pasadena robbery. He also received a phone call from Glendale Police detectives regarding a series of crimes that had occurred in their jurisdiction. Based on the information provided, it appeared the suspects in the Pasadena robbery were also respon-

sible for similar crimes in Glendale. The suspects were ultimately arrested in the Glendale incidents. Alonzo passed on the information on the Pasadena robbery. The cases will likely be bundled together and presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration. On August 3 at about 8:00 p.m., the United States Marshalls Service was searching for a wanted fugitive from Louisiana in the 300 block of North Hill Avenue. The fugitive was wanted for burglary and narcotics violations and was believed to be staying with a local resident. The Marshalls made contact with the suspect and arrested him. Pasadena Sergeant Max Dahlstein was on scene. On August 3, the Pasadena Police Traffic Section conducted a city-wide Speed Enforcement (STEP) program. The program focused on speeding violations; however, officers did not ignore other traffic violations. The traffic safety program generated 106 speeding tickets. On August 5 at about 8:50 p.m., Pasadena Police officers responded to the 3000 block of East Foothill Boulevard regarding a carjacking investigation. The victim was approached by two male adult suspects, one armed with a handgun. The suspects robbed the victim of his vehicle and fled the location. PPD detectives are actively investigating the incident. The suspects were described as two Hispanic Males in their twenties. If you have any information regarding this incident, please call the Pasadena Police Department at (626) 744-4241, or you can report the information by using CRIME STOPPERS (Phone number: 800-2228477), or on-line at http:// lacrimestoppers.org. On August 6 at about 4:30 p.m., Pasadena Police officers responded to the 1400 block of North Garfield Avenue regarding a robbery that just occurred. On arrival, the officers learned that the victim was approached by two Black Males. One of the suspects was armed with a handgun and demanded the victim turn over his cash. Fearing for his personal safety, the

victim complied with the suspect’s demand. One suspect was described as a Black Male in his teens, 5’9” tall, 160 pounds, wearing a green hoody and black jeans. If you have any information regarding this incident, please call the Pasadena Police Department at (626) 744-4241, or you can report the information by using CRIME STOPPERS (Phone number: 800-222-8477), or online at http://lacrimestoppers.org. On August 7 at about 11:10 p.m., Pasadena Police officers responded to the Colorado Street Bridge regarding a male threatening to jump. A female community member was driving her car across the bridge when she saw the victim hanging on the outside of the wrought iron safety fence. She stopped her car and started talking with the distraught victim. A male community member driving by observed the situation and stopped to assist. At one point, the male community member reached through the fence and grabbed the victim’s arm, pulling the victim back and against the safety rail. PPD Officers Steve Rappuchi and Jose Calderon arrived and assisted in the effort to keep the victim pinned to the safety rail. Pasadena Fire Department personnel arrived and moved the victim on to the bridge. The victim was transported to a local hospital for evaluation. The quick actions of our two hero community members, coupled with the actions of Steve, Jose, and the Pasadena Fire Department, clearly saved the victim from jumping to his death. The incident was covered in the local media: http://articles.pasadenasun.com/2012-08-08/ the626now/33104625_1_ pasadena-police-department-adolfo-flores-bridge. On August 8 at about 4:30 p.m., Pasadena Police officers responded to the 1500 block of Wesley Avenue regarding a residential burglary that had just occurred. The victim told police dispatchers that a group of four suspects rang her door bell. When the victim did not answer the door, the suspects walked into her backyard and entered her home through an unlocked door. Pasadena

Police Air Support arrived over the incident and saw the suspects near Washington Boulevard and Holliston Avenue. Ground units were then directed to the suspects’ location. Pasadena Police Officer Richard Vindiola arrived and detained two suspects. The remaining suspects were subsequently detained by Pasadena Police Sergeant Roger Roldan. Richard conducted a field show-up and the suspects were positively identified by the victim. As Richard was completing his field investigation, he was approached by a resident who lives in the 1400 block of East Howard Street. The Howard Street victim had also been burglarized. Richard’s subsequent investigation determined the suspects were responsible for both burglaries. The suspects, all juveniles, were arrested without incident. The local media covered this story: http://www.pasadenasun.com/the626now/ tn-pas-0809-pasadena-burgalry-teens,0,7570343.story. On August 10 at about 4:00 a.m., Pasadena Police officers responded to the 100 block of West Claremont Street regarding an Assault with a Deadly Weapon. On arrival, officers learned that a witness discovered the victim (Black Male adult) sitting in his vehicle near Hammond Street and Kirkwood Avenue. The witness notified the Pasadena Police Department and the victim was transported to a local hospital. Shortly after PPD officers began their investigation, the suspect (Male Black adult) telephoned the police department, stated that he stabbed the victim and wanted to surrender. The suspect was contacted and arrested without incident. PPD officers also located and recovered the weapon used in the attempted murder. The suspect was booked at the Pasadena jail. The incident was covered by the local media: http://www.pasadenasun. com/the626now/tn-pas0810-pasadena-stabbingchest,0,768356.story. On August 10 at about 10:45 p.m., Pasadena Police officers responded to the 500 block of North Mentor Avenue regarding a stabbing that just occurred. On arrival, PPD officers learned that

the suspect stabbed the victim twice in the upper torso following a physical altercation. Following the stabbing, the victim ran from the scene, jumped a fence, and suffered a large laceration to his stomach area. The victim was subsequently transported to a local hospital by Pasadena Fire Paramedics and was listed in stable condition following surgery. A short time later, the suspect called PPD and said he was responsible for the stabbing and wanted to surrender. The suspect was contacted and arrested without further incident.

Sierra Madre PD

Friday August 10 At approximately 11:25 pm, officers observed a vehicle fail to stop for the stop sign at Sierra Madre Boulevard and Lima Street. The vehicle then accelerated to a speed of 45 MPH as it travelled west. After stopping the vehicle the officers determined that the driver had been drinking and tests conducted confirmed that the driver was impaired. The driver, a 63 year old female was arrested for DUI. Saturday August 11 The manager of an apartment complex in the 300 block Sierra Madre Boulevard discovered that an unknown suspect had forced entry into the coin boxes of the laundry machines located in the rear carport area of the complex. The investigation revealed that the coin box locks had been punched inward, damaging the box and affording access to the coins. An estimated $400.00 in quarters was missing. As the manager only checks the machines periodically, the crime could have occurred over a five week period. At approximately 3 am, officers observed a vehicle fail to stop for the stop sign at Baldwin Avenue and Orange Grove Avenue. After stopping the vehicle the officers determined that the driver had been drinking and was unable to successfully complete the field sobriety tests. The driver, a 33 year old male, was arrested for DUI. VIEW MORE POLICE BLOTTERS AT BEACONMEDIANEWS.COM

Boy Scouts and Sexual Discrimination Continued from page 18

“The Golden Empire Council claims he was fired because he violated the camp's dress code, but as his direct supervisor at Camp Winton, I know this isn't true. He was fired because of his sexual orientation,” added Hayes. “If the Golden Empire Council truly stands by its statement, and Tim wasn’t fired because he’s gay, then the council should have no problem rejecting the Boy Scouts of America’s discriminatory ban on gay Scouts and leaders.” Each new signature on Alex Hayes’ petition is sent via email to Scouts Executive James Martin, Program Director Glen Goddard, and several other Golden Empire Council officials.

Hayes, and other former Camp Winton staffers plan to deliver petition signatures in-person at Golden Empire Council’s office in Sacramento on Wednesday, August 15 at 10 a.m. PST. President Obama, who serves as honorary president of the Boy Scouts of America, publicly opposed the Boy Scouts of America’s anti-gay policy on Wednesday, and joined presidential candidate Mitt Romney in supporting gay Americans participating in the Boy Scouts. “The President believes the Boy Scouts is a valuable organization that has helped educate and build character in American boys for more than a century,” said White

House spokesperson Shin Inouye . “He also opposes discrimination in all forms, and as such opposes this policy that discriminates on basis of sexual orientation.” Last weekend, the Mitt Romney for President campaign, responding to a 1994 video recently surfaced by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), confirmed that Romney still believes gay Americans should be allowed to participate in the Boy Scouts. Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said that Romney’s 1994 comments, where he said that the Boy Scouts should welcome members who are gay, “remains Romney’s position today.”

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.

Flex Alert: Energy Conservation Urged Continued from page 1

Documents/StubbornHeatWaveTriggersAnotherStatewideFlexAlert_ConservationCritical.pdf. PWP continues to monitor the situation locally and to work closely with other local, state and regional electric utility officials regarding the state’s energy usage and needs. No specific heat-related problems have been reported. “We need our customers to help conserve energy when and where possible,” said PWP General Manager Phyllis Currie. Currie said PWP is asking all customers to set their air conditioner’s thermostats to no lower than 78

degrees, the temperature setting also recommended by CAL ISO’s Flex Your Power program, www.fypower.org. PWP is also asking customers to follow these other energy saving tips too: Close blinds and drapes to block out direct heat and use energy efficient fans as an alternative to staying cool. Shut entry doors while air conditioners are running. Regularly replace dirty filters on air conditions Use major appliances in the early morning or after 7 p.m., when energy demand is lower. Turn off lights, air con-

ditioners, computers, TVs and other electronics when not in use. Set the refrigerator to 37 degrees, clean coils regularly and unplug unused secondary fridges. Pasadena Water and Power customers can find dozens of rebate incentives on energy-efficient products for both home and workplace at www.PWPweb.com/Rebates.
