Pacific Asia Museum will welcome the monks of Drepung Loseling Phukhang Monastery September 5-9, 2012. During the course of their five-day stay, the monks will create a sand mandala in Pacific Asia Museum’s Changing Exhibition Gallery from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and welcome visitors to observe the opening Blessing Ceremony and the closing Dissolution Ceremony. 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 funnel-shaped 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 sur-

face.

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 ceremony 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

Local Fitness Expert Provides Busy Pasadena Business Women Diabetes Prevention Guide According to the American Diabetes Statistics 2.6 million, or 10.8% of all women aged 20 years or older have diabetes. Most wait until actually diagnosed with the disease that causes excessive thirst and appetite, increased urination (sometimes as often as every hour), unusual weight loss or gain, fatigue, nausea, perhaps vomiting, slow-healing sores and cuts and itching skin, especially in the groin area for both men and women. Type 2 Diabetes is a sign of the times. Busy schedules, processed food and lack of exercise all send naive Americans to

the grim diagnoses. Other symptoms exclusively found in women include blurred vision and frequent vaginal and yeast infections. The extra ailments found in women are the reasons why local Pasadena Fitness Expert, Lauren Saracione, published her free “Busy Pasadena Business Woman’s Diabetes Prevention Guide”. Being a busy businesswoman herself and wanting to celebrate “Prosper Where Your Planted Month” she decided to put together a little gift to fellow businesswomen to not only fend off diabetes, but also improve their quality

of life and productivity in the present. The guide includes information about diet, exercise and mindset to optimize women’s power to stay healthy and diabetes free even with a heavy workload and busy schedule. Expensive health insurance premiums and medication side effects make getting healthy and staying healthy a daunting task. One that is aggravated by the health and fitness industry’s constant flow of exercise gizmos, promising fitness improvements to enhance one’s quality of life. What’s more is the new “miracle diet”

each month with remarkable before and after pictures to motivate the busy, overweight and exhausted woman, denying information of likely excessive exercise along with the actual diet plan. The guide offers “real life” advice that can be applied on day one of reading the report. It includes information about prediabetec symptoms, habits to be adopted and eliminated as well as an action guide for fitness under time constraint. The guide can be found at http://www.pasadenabusinesswomen.com in pdf form, for free.

a great honor, and thrilling as well. It was the passing of our irreplaceable Marvin Hamlisch that has given me the desire to conduct, and every step of the way I will have him on my mind and in my heart,” says Michael Feinstein, adding, “It was because of Marvin that I wish to do this because he had a great love for the Pasadena POPS and my experience with everybody last month was so positive on every level.” “While we are still deeply saddened by the untimely passing of our beloved friend and leader Marvin Hamlisch, we take great comfort in appointing Michael Feinstein to the Marvin Hamlisch Chair as our new Principal Pops Conductor,” states Melinda Shea, President of the Board, “Marvin’s wife, my dear friend Terre, is also so delighted that Marvin will be forever connected to the Pasadena POPS through

the naming of the Marvin Hamlisch Chair.” The summer 2012 season at the Los Angeles Country Arboretum continues as scheduled this Saturday with La Dolce Vita and closes on September 8 with Gershwin On The Green. Season subscriptions to the Pasadena POPS Summer 2013 season under the direction of Michael Feinstein are on sale now. 2013 Concert dates are June 8, June 29, July 13, August 10 and September 7. For more information visit www.PasadenaSymphonyPops.org Marvin Hamlisch Chair As Principal Pops Conductor, Marvin Hamlisch propelled the Pasadena POPS into a new and successful era, guided by his own contributions to The Great American Songbook and carrying on the legacies of Richard Rodgers and George Gershwin. He

was a giant in American music, a true national treasure and dear friend whose music leaves a cherished legacy to the entire world. To honor his life and work, the Pasadena POPS has created the Marvin Hamlisch Chair, an operating fund that will support the legacy of Marvin Hamlisch and the unique programming he developed for the Pasadena POPS. A colleague and friend of Marvin Hamlisch, the Pasadena POPS has appointed Michael Feinstein to serve as the first Principal Pops Conductor to hold this newly created Chair. Gifts to the Marvin Hamlisch Chair fund may be made in honor or memory of a friend or family member or simply to celebrate Marvin Hamlisch’s musical and personal contributions to the Pasadena POPS and the world of music.

United Way Partners with Housing Authority of Pasadena and others to Raise $105 M to Fight Homelessness

Los Angeles County has been the homeless capital of the nation for many years. Every night, over 51,000 people in our region endure the harsh, dangerous, and deflating challenges of life without a home. In allowing this to continue, we also feel a negative impact on our lives, our businesses, and our society. In December 2010, with extensive input from our community, United Way launched Home For Good, the “blueprint to end chronic

and veteran homelessness in Los Angeles County by 2016”. Since then, over100 organizations and leaders from across the region have stepped forward – signing on and creating the momentum we need to end chronic and veteran homelessness in our communities for good. The first $5 million comes from businesses like Kaiser Permanente and JP Morgan Chase and foundations like the California Endowment and the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. Public agencies like the Housing

Authorities of Pasadena, Los Angeles City and County are committing $100 million in resources like Section 8 housing vouchers and health, mental health and substance abuse services. This year has been one of tremendous progress – agencies such as United Way have seen shifts in systems, new collaborations, and incredible progress on the ground - all thanks to the remarkable every day work of people across the region championing the effort to end homelessness.

Low Cost Health Plan for Working Californians Stalls in Assembly Legislation by California State Senator Ed Hernandez, O.D. (D– West Covina) which would extend affordable, quality healthcare coverage to nearly one million lowincome Californians at no additional cost to state taxpayers was blocked today by members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee, despite the fact that the bill would actually save the state money. The Affordable Care Act (ACA), signed into law by President Obama in 2010, permits states to create health plans for low-income individuals financed almost exclusively with federal dollars. Senate Bill 703 establishes a “Basic Health Plan” (BHP) in California that would provide quality health care coverage to over 900,000 Californians for as little as $20 a month. “The Assembly Appropriations Committee’s action today is a tremendous disappointment and a real setback in our efforts to make sure low-income

Californians have access to affordable health care,” said Hernandez. The ACA requires everyone to have health care coverage and allows states to setup a health benefit Exchange where people will be able to browse health plan options and purchase coverage. Under SB 703, the BHP would operate independently of California’s Exchange to provide coverage to people with incomes between 133% and 200% of the federal poverty level (those making $15,000 to $21,500 annually). Senator Hernandez crafted the bill to provide a coverage option for people who make too much to qualify for MediCal, but who cannot afford to purchase health coverage on their own - even through the Exchange. “People who are struggling to pay their rent and put food on the table should not have to spend up to 10% of their income on healthcare” added Hernandez. “Our state’s citizens want to purchase

health insurance and they will, if you can make a quality product affordable for them. Without a BHP, we are going to put hard working Californian’s in the unfortunate position of violating the law because they can’t afford to buy insurance.” Opponents of the bill argue that the BHP could detract from the effectiveness and negotiating clout of the Exchange. Senator Hernandez counters that even without the population covered by the BHP, California’s Exchange would still be the largest in the country and that SB 703 would allow for joint contracting between the Exchange and BHP to maintain purchasing power. “Opposition to the Basic Health Plan isn’t about purchasing power,” said Hernandez, “Health plans, hospitals, and doctors stopped this bill because they want to make as much profit off the Affordable Care Act as they can.”

California Students Win Awards and Scholarships State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today congratulated four California students for winning medals and scholarships last month at the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) National Leadership Conference held in Florida. Two other California students are also being noted for their leadership roles in the event. The students are members of FHA-HERO (formerly known as the Future Homemakers of America– Home Economics Related Occupations), the California affiliate of FCCLA. Ian Villanueva, Jonathan Cayax, and Noemi Ruiz won silver medals in the culinary arts division, and also won scholarships from prestigious culinary academies and colleges. All three are Katella High School students in the Anaheim Union High School District in Anaheim. Sam Li of Rosemead High School of the El Monte Union High School District in Rosemead brought home a silver medal in the job interview event. Also, Erika Montano of

Colton High School in the Colton Joint Unified School District in Colton, and Priscilla Young of Mills High School in the San Mateo Union High School District in Millbrae are FHA-HERO State Officers who served on national consultant/president’s teams and as voting and election delegates. FHA-HERO is a career technical student organization recognized by the CDE for providing students with real-world experience and leadership skills that prepare them for careers. This is part of Torlakson’s California Career Readiness Initiative designed to lower the student dropout rate in California and provide high school graduates with the skills needed to pursue further education and training as they prepare to enter the workforce. The CDE received a $59,880 grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to help underprivileged children become more literate about the ocean and the environment. Funding will be used to support the Multicultural

Education for Resource Issues Threatening Oceans (MERITO) Academy and will provide environmental education experiences for 1,500 students in the Ventura and Santa Barbara county schools. Children will participate in field trips to watershed, coastal, and island areas to get hands-on experience in science, as well as lessons in language arts, mathematics, visual arts, and Englishlanguage development that meet California’s academic standards. The curriculum also includes the principles and concepts outlined in the state’s Education and the Environment Initiative. Funding also will be used for teacher training, support materials, and to pay for field trips and transportation. The CDE will pass the funding for the MERITO Academy through the Monterey Bay Sanctuary Foundation starting this month and continuing through June 2013. The grant is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Bay-Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) Grant Program.

Public Comment Open on Draft EIR for Rose Bowl Temporary Use by NFL Public comments are now being accepted on the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) completed by the Pasadena Planning Department regarding the possible temporary use of the Rose Bowl by the National Football League (NFL). Written comments on the Draft EIR must be submitted to the City by close of business Monday, October 8, 2012. Comments should be mailed or delivered to David Sinclair, Pasadena Planning Department, 175 N. Garfield Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91109. Written comments may also be submitted by email to RoseBowlNFLComments@cityofpasadena.net. The public is encouraged to attend any or all of the following public meetings and may also submit oral comments in response to the Draft EIR at that time. The meetings include: Planning Commission, Special Meeting, 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 19, City Council Chambers, Room S249, 100 N. Garfield Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101. Transportation Advisory Commission, Special Meeting, 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 27, Rose Bowl Media Center, 1001 Rose Bowl Drive, Pasadena, CA 91103. Park in Lot F. Enter

through Auto Gate to the left of Gate A. Security will direct attendees to Media Center. Recreation and Parks Commission, Special Meeting, 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 2, Rose Bowl Media Center, 1001 Rose Bowl Drive, Pasadena, CA 91103. Park in Lot F. Enter through Auto Gate to the left of Gate A. Security will direct attendees to Media Center. Responses to comments regarding the Draft EIR that are received during the public comment period will be incorporated into the Final EIR and presented to the City Council for its consideration. It is anticipated that the Final EIR will be available in the late Fall 2012. The Draft EIR is available for review during regular business hours at the following locations: Office of the City Clerk, 100 N. Garfield Avenue, Room S228, Pasadena, CA. City of Pasadena, Permit Center (Window 3), 175 N. Garfield Avenue, Pasadena, CA. Central Library, 285 E. Walnut Avenue, Pasadena, CA. Linda Vista Branch Library, 1281 Bryant Street Pasadena, CA.

In addition, the Draft EIR is on the City’s website at www.cityofpasadena. net/Rose_Bowl_EIR. For additional information, please call Mr. David Sinclair at (626) 744-6766. The Rose Bowl currently holds approximately 12 events per year that each generate more than 20,000 attendees, primarily on weekends. The Pasadena Municipal Code limits such event to no more than 12 per year. The proposed project would amend the Municipal Code, Chapter 3.32, to temporarily increase the limit for large events up to 25 per year. Currently, seven events are contractually reserved for the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) football games, plus two postseason collegiate games, including the Rose Bowl. If amended, up to 13 events would be reserved for the NFL. The Rose Bowl would also continue to host other sporting events or concerts, with the total not to exceed 25 annually. The NFL’s proposed use would be temporary until a new NFL stadium is selected and built in the Los Angeles area, or until the completion of the football season, including playoffs, in 2018, whichever comes first.

El Monte City Council Names Dayle Keller Interim City Manager The El Monte City Council has appointed Dayle Keller to the post of Interim City Manager. Ms. Keller comes to El Monte with 23 years of experience as a municipal government administrator, retiring eight years ago from another San Gabriel Valley community. Keller’s appointment begins Sept. 4, said Mayor Andre Quintero, who noted that her selection by the Council was unanimous. The retiree will oversee City operations while the search continues for a candidate to fill the position permanently. “We are thrilled to have found a person with a background as deep as Ms. Keller’s,” Quintero said. “Her experience as a City

Manager will help guide us through the process of finding a permanent City Manager.” Keller’s resume includes 12 years as a City Manager/Chief Executive Officer. Keller served as the Chief Executive Officer of Baldwin Park from 2000 to 2004. She has held city manager posts in Taft and Beaumont. Most recently, she was the Interim City Manager for the City of American Canyon in Napa County, and then for the City of Lawndale from July, 2010 through April, 2011. She has a strong background in managing and evaluating operations and services. She possesses significant experience in finance, personnel, labor re-

lations, economic development, and redevelopment. “I have a strong commitment to improving the quality of life in communities and to building excellence in the organizations serving those communities,” Keller said. She has a master’s degree in public administration with a public finance emphasis from Cal State Fullerton, where she also earned a bachelor’s degree in political science with a public administration concentration. Keller, who is not applying for the permanent position, succeeds Rene Bobadilla, who resigned to become city manager for the city of Huntington Park.

Supervising Special Agent Jaime Arevalo with Rotary President Eric Barter

Celebrated singer Natalie Cole will headline the 2012 Crystal Ball October 13 at the Pasadena Convention Center, Methodist Hospital announced. Aptly themed “An Unforgettable Night With Natalie Cole,” the 23rd annual event will honor former Methodist Hospital President and CEO Dennis Lee and his wife, Carolyn, for their many years of support for the hospital. Dennis retired in 2011 after 17 years at CEO, and Carolyn was an equally committed supporter of the hospital during the couple’s two decades here. John Wuo and Peggy Tsiang Cherng, both dedicated hospital supporters, are cochairs this year. Cherng and her husband, Andrew, were

event,” Cherng said. “Once a year it gives us a great opportunity to showcase to the community what the hospital is all about.” “At the same time,” she added, “it allows people to celebrate an organization that they enthusiastically support.” Cherng is co-founder of the Panda Restaurant Group, sponsor of the Panda Cares Charity Golf Invitational, which donates a significant portion of its tournament proceeds to Methodist Hospital. Wuo agreed. “The Crystal Ball has become a premier event in the San Gabriel Valley. While it continues to raise a good amount of money for the hospital, our goal first and foremost is for people to have a great time,” said the former Arcadia mayor and current city council member. “If they enjoy a great evening, everything else will fall into place.” The 2012 Crystal Ball will be, in a word, unforgettable. The evening will also include an elegant dinner, dancing and live and silent auctions.

The daughter of jazz legend Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole rose to prominence with hits such as “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love),” “Inseparable” and “Our Love.” She also recorded standards by her father, resulting in such favorites as Grammy-awarded wining “Unforgettable… with Love.” Ms. Cole, who has many movies and television appearances to her credit as well as being the author of two best selling books, has won nine Grammy awards throughout her illustrious career. Crystal Ball 2011 raised $530,000, and with Cole headlining this year’s event, the co-chairs and their committee members hope to surpass that amount.

The Social Whirl Local Girls ‘Camped In' at Whittier College

Local Girls Camped at Whittier College. Home from AAUW California’s Tech Trek Science/Math Camp this summer at Whittier College are thirteen girls from local middle schools. Seated (l-r) are Marina Orozco and Alexis Kimes, Monrovia; Ann (Yin Yi) Chen and Wendi Seguar, El Monte City Schools. Standing (l-r) are Brianna Chandra, Irene Wang, Frances Aguilar, and Sai Katapalli, Arcadia; Christine Choy and Candice Lau, Temple City; and Alexandria Constanzo and Frida Franco, El Monte City Schools. The Arcadia Branch of AAUW is sponsor for the local students. (Not pictured: Kimberly Rubio.) -Courtesy Photo

No, they don’t have their college degrees yet, but thirteen local middle school girls completed a successful week this summer on the Whittier College campus, exploring futures in science, math and technology. Under the sponsorship of the Arcadia Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW), the thirteen girls attended Tech Trek Science/Math Camp for Girls, a summer program for eighth grade girls. The goal of Tech Trek Camp is to help young women entering eighth grade in the fall to develop interest, excitement and self-confidence in the fields of math and science. Representing Arcadia were Brianna Chandra and Irene Wang from Dana Middle School, as well as Frances Aguilar and Sai Kot-

tapalli from First Avenue Middle School. El Monte City School District was represented by Ann (Yin Yi) Chen, Gidley School; Kimberly Rubio and Wendi Segura, Potrero school; Alexandria Constanzo, Rio Hondo School; and Frida Franco, Frank M. Wright School. Santa Fe Middle School, Monrovia, sent Alexis Kimes and Marina Orozco. Christine Choy and Candice Lau were selected from Oak Avenue Intermediate School, Temple City. These young women received a preview of college life while learning that math and science can be fun. They lived in dorms on the Whittier College campus for the week. They attended classes taught by credentialed middle school teachers in classes emphasizing hands-on exper-

iments. Professional women in the fields of math, science and technology were guest presenters. Highlighting the activities were field trips to Jet Propulsion Lab, forensics labs, water reclamation plants, and other related science and technology centers. AAUW volunteers served as camp directors, nurses and chaperones. Students are nominated by teachers to attend the science, math and technology camps. The local branch of AAUW that provides the funding for the students to attend makes the final selection of “campers.” AAUW-Arcadia Branch is supporting this endeavor, along with contributions from community donors. Major donors this year are the Arcadia Chinese Association, the Hakka Foundation, Soroptimist of Altadena/Pasadena, the Wayne C. Clayton Foundation and El Monte City Schools. Tech Trek had its beginnings at Stanford University in 1998 with initial funding from the AAUW Educational Foundation. This Year there were ten camps: CSUFresho, Sonoma State University, Stanford University (two weeks), UC Davis, UC Irvine, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara (two Weeks), and Whittier College. Tech Trek is continuing proof that AAUW puts it mission to support equity and education for all women and girls into action.

The Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens broke ground Wednesday, July 18, 2012 on a new theater for its popular “World of Bords” show. Improvements to the facility, which after enchant-

ing Zoo visitors for more than 20 years was in need of renovation, are made possible by donations arranged by the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA) from Basil Collier and Mohammad

Virani of the Angela Collier Foundation and long-time GLAZA docent and donor Helen Pekny. When the theatre reopens later this year, its new name will be the Angela Collier World of Birds Theater in honor of Collier’s late daughter who established the Angela Collier Foundation to support a variety of animal welfare charities. Support for the project from Pekny, a docent since 1985, funds a complete backstage renovation. The new Angela Collier World of Birds Theater features a Mediterranean theme with a two story stage to better demonstrate natural behaviors of birds. Over 20 species of birds, including macaws, condors, vultures, cranes, hornbills, hawks and eagles, are part of the bird shows.

Taste of Arcadia Moves to Sept. 24 in Recognition of Rosh Hashana Taste of Arcadia has been rescheduled for Monday, Sept. 24, a change of one week so as not to conflict with the second night of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year that begins at sundown on Sunday, Sept. 16, 5:30-9 p.m. All elements of the Taste of Arcadia, including vendors, participants and sponsors, will remain the same, at the annual host venue of the L.A. County Arboretum and Botanical Garden. Advance tickets are $50 and will be $60 at the gate. You can buy online at http:// arcadiachamber.org/event/ taste-of-arcadia/ or call the chamber office at (626) 4472159. If you have already purchased a ticket and cannot attend on the new date of Sept. 24 and would like a refund, please contact the Arcadia Chamber of Commerce at

(626) 447-2159. When scheduling events, the Chamber always tries to accommodate the calendars of local groups, cultures, and religions, and maintains the monthly activity calendar of City, schools, churches and other groups for the non-profit Arcadia Community Coordinating Council. As always, a percentage of the proceeds from Taste of Arcadia will be donated to local non-profit organizations. This year there will be more beneficiaries than ever, with the Chamber donating $5 of every ticket sold by a pre-approved organization. Dozens of the best local restaurants, caterers and wine and beer vendors will present tastes of their cuisine at no extra charge all evening long to the approximately 1,000 attendees of Taste of Arcadia on Sept. 24. And the Busi-

ness Showcase at the Taste will offer the first chance for community groups and nonfood businesses, including car dealers, to present information at what is called “the signature event of Arcadia.” A new culinary contest judged by celebrity chef Jyll Everman of the Food Network promises to spark the tastiest and most original foods, desserts and drinks. The eight piece band LoungeO-Rama will perform Swing, Big Band and American standards in the early part of the evening before switching to classic pop rock as the sun goes down and the dance floor comes alive. That’s also when the traditional exotic Brazilian dancers will appear to the delight of the crowds. Arcadia High School’s talented drum line will again greet guests as they enter the gate.

Temple Station - Crime Trends The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Temple Station is responsible for providing law enforcement services to the cities of Bradbury, Duarte, Rosemead, South El Monte and Temple City, as well as the unincorporated county communities of South San Gabriel, El Monte, Monrovia, Arcadia, Duarte (M.A.D.), East Pasadena, and North San Gabriel. Below you will find a summary of the reported crimes during the month of July for each of the above listed communities. During the past month, the statistics indicated a slight increase in theft related crimes within several of our communities. No particular trend or pattern was identified, but residential and commercial burglaries were up slightly, while auto thefts declined in all but one area. I encourage the community to remain vigilant and continue to report suspicious behavior and/or activities while out

shopping or spending time at home. The information you provide to us is extremely helpful in thwarting illegal activity and apprehending criminals. The hot summer weather has caused many of us to open windows and doors in our homes and businesses. While it provides some relief from the heat, pleasedo not forget to lock those doors and windows when leaving, so as not to make your home or business an easy target for thieves. As stated last month, if you are contacted by anyone who asks to enter your residence to conduct an inspection, request to see official identification. If they refuse or do not have legitimate credentials identifying them as a reputable utility company or agency, please call Temple Station immediately.Please continue to monitor your neighborhood for suspicious vehicles or persons walking door to door. If it seems suspicious, do not hesitate

to telephone Temple Station and ask for a patrol unit to respond. It would be advantageous to report the activity immediately and provide the best possible description. It will aid in our ability to intercept the person or vehicle before they have the chance to leave the area. Vehicle theftsremain an area for concern. Car thieves continue to target Honda cars within the model years of 1998 through 2006. Please remember to lock and secure your vehicle and take all valuables with you. Do not leave laptop computers and navigational equipment in the open. Temple Sheriff’s Station’s partnership with community members is our strongest asset in the fight against crime. Please remain vigilant, and if you see something or someone suspicious, call Temple Station at (626) 285-7171 or in cases of emergency,dial 911.

to take pictures with her, get her autograph, or try out the feel of the medals around their necks. “They are heavy aren’t they?” asked Rhode to one of the residents measuring out the golden and silver circles. The athlete graciously answered her neighbors’ questions and posed with dozens of children. “It has taken time to sink in,” said Rhode. “It takes a while to realize what it all means. I feel like someone who is just ok at shooting. Ok, maybe better than ok… but it was not about the medals, it was always about the dream.” Rhode is not yet thinking of giving it up. She also spoke about her plans to train with the goal of Brazil 2016. She was hailed by the Monrovia residents as an inspiration, especially for the city’s youngsters. In fact, Rhode is an inspiration for people in several cities in the San Gabriel Valley, as she was born in Whittier,

went to school in El Monte, and now calls Monrovia home. Rhode attended Sunday’s event accompanied

by her husband and her mother. They just “walked to the park” for the event because they live literally “just down the street.”

PUSD School Year Underway As children in Altadena, Pasadena and Sierra Madre prepare to go back to school, officials of the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) remind families that students started school on August 22. Immunizations should be up to date, summer reading finished, and school meal applications completed. Academic options in PUSD have been expanded to prepare students with the skills to succeed in the 21st century. PUSD began phasing in an early start calendar last year to mirror college schedules. Classes began August 22, 2012 and end June 6, 2013. In 2013-2014, classes will begin August 14 and end May 29, 2014 allowing all students to complete fall classes before the winter break and gain three weeks of instruction prior to taking standardized state tests. This year, academic initiatives are aimed at preparing students with the skills to compete in the 21st century. Along with the early start calendar, PUSD offers transitional kindergarten, expanded dual language immersion and added two themed academies to its collection of College and Career Pathways programs in

PUSD high schools. “As a learning community, our focus is on fusing academic rigor with the critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration and creative skills that students will need to compete and thrive in a global economy,” said Superintendent Jon R. Gundry. Transitional kindergarten will be offered at four sites (Washington Elementary, McKinley School, Jefferson Elementary and Willard Elementary) this fall for students who turn five years old between October 2 and December 1, 2012. Transitional kindergarten is the first of a two-year state mandated program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. The popular Dual Language Immersion Program expands this year with the addition of a kindergarten Spanish dual language class at Jackson Elementary School. The founding programs in Spanish at San Rafael Elementary and Mandarin at Field Elementary expand to fourth-grade this year. The College and Career Pathways, which offer college preparatory curriculum

paired with themed studies and project-based learning in areas such as engineering, entrepreneurship and media, add Law and Public Service and Computer Science/Information Technology this year to the offerings at Pasadena High School. Students entering or advancing into seventh-grade will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster immunization (called Tdap) in order to attend school this fall. For immunization requirements for K-12 students, go to www.health-programs. pasadenausd.org or call (626) 396-3600 extension 88180. Immunizations will be available for students every Monday starting August 27 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the PUSD clinic. With the adoption of a wellness policy last year, PUSD cafeterias have switched to healthier ingredients to support student nutrition and fitness. Applications for the federal free and reduced price meal program are available at school offices and have been mailed home to district families. Families should make every effort to complete applications before the first day of school.

City of El Monte Back to School Resource Fair - Aug. 25 In a time when resources are scarce for families, the community is rallying to support school children with a Back to School Resource Fair for families whose children attend school districts based in El Monte. The City of El Monte, the Downtown El Monte Business Association, the El Monte/South El Monte Chamber of Commerce, El Monte Kiwanis, the Upper San Gabriel Valley Water District, the El Monte Union High School, El Monte City and Mountain View School Districts have partnered up to host the Back to School Resource Fair to provide free school supplies, socks and haircuts. “Our community is coming together to make sure that our children are prepared to go back to school,” City Councilwoman Victoria “Vicky” Martinez said. “Providing free resources for our kids and supporting our local businesses, that’s the beauty of this event.” Councilwoman Mar-

tinez, who is spearheading the fair on behalf of the City, is grateful for all the support the event is receiving from the community, and is encouraging families to come out and take advantage of what the Back to School Resource Fair has to offer. “Since the day we started planning, we’ve gotten such great response from so many businesses and organizations wanting to contribute and participate in this event. It has the makings of what could be one of the best back-to-school fairs we’ve ever had,” she said. “There’s going to be lots of school supplies and giveaways at what’s going to be a great event for our community.” Local business and industry are sponsoring the Back to School Resource Fair Healthy Family Expo which will provide free interactive information booths. The Professional Institute of Beauty will give free haircuts for school-aged children and Sketchers will raffle off a free pair of shoes

every hour. Families will also have the opportunity to purchase school uniforms. The fair will also provide free finger printing of children by the El Monte Police Department’s Volunteers Caring and Patrolling (VCAPs). Visitors to the Back to School Resource Fair are being asked to stop by the Be the Match Foundation’s bone marrow registration booth to support Alexandrea Vizcarra. The 19-yearold El Monte resident is stricken with a recurrence of leukemia and needs bone marrow to survive. No one in her family is a match and neither is anyone on the national bone marrow registry. The family is reaching out to the public for help. All resources and services will be held on a first come, first served basis for those attending El Monte schools. For more information, please contact the El Monte/South El Monte Chamber of Commerce at (626) 443-0180.

Draft EIR is Released for the Azusa to Montclair Phase of the Foothill Extension The Construction Authority advanced the Azusa to Montclair phase of the Foothill Extension one step closer Tuesday with the release of the Draft EIR. The Draft EIR is released for a 45-day review period; and two public meetings are scheduled in September to receive comments. Once the EIR is certified later this year, the Construction Authority

will seek out other funding sources as they advance the preliminary engineering, planning and design. As an update on Measure J, its enabling legislation (AB1446) was approved by the California State Senate Monday. Separately, the bill no longer requires Metro to identify how much each project will cost and when each project will be completed

(eliminating accountability and transparency to the taxpayers); as well as reduces the requirement from a twothirds majority to a simple majority of the Metro board to amend the expenditure plan in the future. The amended bill now goes back to the Assembly for ratification. If approved, it will be sent to the Governor for his signature.

In California, any legal action taken against a physician must go through the physician’s private practice and be conducted by the State. Hospitals do not have jurisdiction over private physician practices. Jeanette Martello no longer has privileges at Huntington Hospital and the hospital does not condone patient harassment under any circumstances. Some physicians or physician groups are contracted by hospitals to provide services, such as emergency department call. Hospitals do have the right terminate these services and Dr. Jeanette Martello was terminated from the emergency department on-call rotation earlier this year.

The state’s lawsuit against Martello, however, is the first of its kind, according to Marta Green, California Department of Managed Health Care spokeswoman. State officials allege in court papers that Martello collected or attempted to collect more from patients than insurance companies paid, a practice known as balance billing. Protections against balance billing are strongest in emergency cases

because patients have less control over who treats them according to the Times. The Supreme Court said if the doctor is unhappy with what they are getting paid by the managed care plan, they need to fight it out with the health plan and leave the patient out of it, according to The Los Angeles Times. California’s managed healthcare regulators investigated Martello after receiving complaints. Then, in 2010, they issued a cease-and-desist order against her. When that didn’t stop her, the department sued her in Los Angeles County Superior Court — the first time the state has taken such an action against an individual doctor, officials said. The case alleged Martello’s actions posed a “substantial, irreparable, and unjustified threat to the financial livelihood” of the patients. Officials said that didn’t stop her either. Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) Director Brent Barnhart in May released a statement regarding the Los Angeles Superior

Court ruling granting a preliminary injunction against Dr. Martello to immediately stop her from illegally billing health plan enrollees for the difference between what their health plan paid and her billed charges. The ruling came in the case of the People v. Martello. “The court’s ruling prevents Dr. Martello from harming health plan enrollees by illegally attempting to collect money from them that they don’t owe,” said Brent Barnhart, Director of the Department of Managed Health Care. “The California Supreme Court has made it clear that patients cannot be placed in the middle of disputes between health plans and providers over payments for emergency care.” In California, health plans are responsible for the cost of enrollees’ emergency health care services. Occasionally, disputes arise between health plans and emergency providers about the reasonable cost of those services. Under California law, Please see page 18

Santa Anita to Host American Youth Soccer Opening Event On Saturday, August 25 - 10AM

-Courtesy Photo

For the second consecutive year, Santa Anita Park will host the local American Youth Soccer Organization’s (AYSO) Opening Day event this Saturday, Aug. 25. Hosted by Arcadia’s AYSO Region 2, the event attracted more than 3,000 parents, players and local residents last year and is scheduled to “kickoff” this Saturday at 10 a.m. in Santa Anita’s spacious Infield area. Opening ceremonies will feature a parade of all players in Region 2’s U5, U6, U7, U8 and U10 divisions. “Immediately follow-

ing the parade, Region 2 will acknowledge the communities, school districts and corporate sponsors that make each season a success,” said Michael Belter, AYSO Region 2 Upper Division Coordinator. “In addition to Santa Anita, the cities of Arcadia, Sierra Madre, Duarte, Monrovia and Bradbury have all been very supportive, as have the Monrovia Unified School District, Arcadia Unified School Board, the Duarte Unified School Board and the Arcadia Parks and Recreation Department.” Belter also noted that special recognition will be

given to the coaches and families of Region 2’s BU14 and BU10 teams that participated in AYSO’s national tournament this past month in Knoxville, Tennessee. “This was a great event for us last year and we expect this Saturday’s ‘Kickoff’ is going to be even better,” said Santa Anita Director of Community Services & Special Projects, Pete Siberell. “This is great community outreach for us. It’s exciting to see all of these kids gathered along with their parents and having an enjoyable day. Santa Anita is a proud supporter of AYSO and we hope to see all of these folks back here in the weeks and months ahead.” Participants in Saturday’s AYSO event are encouraged to enter Santa Anita’s infield parking lot at Gate 6, off of Colorado Place. Santa Anita’s 2012 Autumn Meet will begin on Sept. 28 and Santa Anita will again host the Breeders’ Cup World Championships on Nov. 2 & 3.

“…in diffusing situations, apprehending alleged criminals, and protecting themselves and others, officers are legally entitled to use appropriate means, including force.” In dozens of studies of police use of force there is no single, accepted definition among the researchers, analysts, or the police. The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) in its study, Police Use of Force in America 2001, defined use of force as “The amount of effort required by police to compel compliance by an unwilling subject.” The IACP also identified five components of force: physical, chemical, electronic, impact, and firearm. To some people, though, the mere presence of a police officer can be intimidating and seen as use of force. In Pasadena, officers are faced with the same issues every dept. faces on a daily basis and officers’ reactions and actions to any given scenario could be the difference

between life and death. Local media representatives were invited to attend a class Tuesday at the Police Firing Range and Training Center in which participants had the chance to see several different situations from an offcer’s perspective using a Power Point presentation and the Use of Force Simulator. Officers Doug Hamblin and Anthony Russo, who led the class, and were joined by Lt. Phulente Riddle and Chief Phillip Sanchez who gave insightful perspective on many different situations officers face. The opportunity for this reporter was truly eye-opening. After the PowerPoint presentation and a series of disturbing videos of officers being shot, and in some cases mortally wounded, Officer Anthony Russo equipped me with a handgun – a Glock- ( utilizing laser, not live ammunition), Tazer, and pepper spray and placed me an a scenario similar to one which any officer could face

at any given time . The Use of Force simulator attempts to recreate that scenario and the new recruit (i.e. yours truly) had to respond accordingly and do what he thinks an officer would do in a similar situation. The force simulator was ininitially installed and training began in February 2011 but a newer, more up to date, version was later implemented and is now in use at the training facility. The experience is profound and one learns a great deal about not what you see, but what you don’t see. How quickly one must see the big picture in any given scenario and the rapid decicions that peace officers must make in split seconds was indeed insightful. One male colleague from another newspaper was given the scenario of a traffic stop where a pretty young girl, wearing a bikini top, gets out of the car and starts talking to the police officer.

new recruit did not see the large handgun in the door of the car which was very evident upon replay. In point of fact after discussion, none of the media reps, including one woman, saw the handgun which was clearly evident upon review of the video. The point of the exercise is to understand how many factors are involved in any given situation and how important it is to see the big picture and not the obvious. The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) in Data Collection on Police Use of Force, states that “…the legal test of excessive force…is whether the police officer reasonably believed that such force was necessary to accomplish a legitimate police purpose…” However, there are no universally accepted definitions of “reasonable” and “necessary” because the terms are subjective. A court in one jurisdiction may define “reasonable” or “necessary” differently than a court in a second jurisdiction. More to the point is an understanding of the “improper” use of force, which can be divided into two categories: “unnecessary” and “excessive.” The unnec-

essary use of force would be the application of force where there is no justification for its use, while an excessive use of force would be the application of more force than required where use of force is necessary. A 1999 BJS report estimated that less than half of 1 percent of an estimated 44 million people who had faceto-face contact with a police officer were threatened with or actually experienced force. Other studies report similar statistics. It is these few situations, however, that attract public attention. Robert K. Olsen, former Minneapolis Police Chief and Past President, Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), early in 2004 called the use of force “the single most volatile issue facing police departments.” He noted that “just one use of force incident can dramatically alter the stability of a police department and its relationship with a community.” Police department policies can have a significant impact on how force is used in street-level encounters, says a 2003 study by the CommuPlease see page 16

Nasa Mars Rover Begins Driving at Bradbury Landing - Governer Brown Visits JPL

Curiosity model at JPL is controlled by an iPhone app that an intern developed. Now the real Curiosity will be moving its robotic arm on Mars. -Photo by Terry Miller

NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has begun driving from its landing site, which scientists announced Wednesdaythey have named for the late author Ray Bradbury. Making its first movement on the Martian surface, Curiosity’s drive combined forward, turn and reverse segments. This placed the rover roughly 20 feet (6 meters) from the spot where it landed 17 days ago. On Wednesday afternoon Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. will gave remarks at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory praising the science and innovation behind the Curiosity rover, which landed on Mars on August 5. Before giving remarks, the Governor toured the operations center, met with the Mars Science Laboratory operating team and viewed a full-scale model of the rover. NASA has approved the Curiosity science team’s choice to name the landing ground for the influential author, who was born 92 years ago today and died this year. The location where Curiosity touched down is now called

Bradbury Landing. “This was not a difficult choice for the science team,” said Michael Meyer, NASA program scientist for Curiosity. “Many of us and millions of other readers were inspired in our lives by stories Ray Bradbury wrote to dream of the possibility of life on Mars.” Today’s drive confirmed the health of Curiosity’s mobility system and produced the rover’s first wheel tracks on Mars, documented in images taken after the drive. During a news conference today at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., the mission’s lead rover driver, Matt Heverly, showed an animation derived from visualization software used for planning the first drive. “We have a fully functioning mobility system with lots of amazing exploration ahead,” Heverly said.Curiosity will spend several more days of working beside Bradbury Landing, performing instrument checks and studying the surroundings, before embarking toward its first driving destination approximately

1,300 feet (400 meters) to the east-southeast. “Curiosity is a much more complex vehicle than earlier Mars rovers. The testing and characterization activities during the initial weeks of the mission lay important groundwork for operating our precious national resource with appropriate care,” said Curiosity Project Manager Pete Theisinger of JPL. “Sixteen days in, we are making excellent progress.” The science team has begun pointing instruments on the rover’s mast for investigating specific targets of interest near and far. The Chemistry and Camera (ChemCam) instrument used a laser and spectrometers this week to examine the composition of rocks exposed when the spacecraft’s landing engines blew away several inches of overlying material. The instrument’s principal investigator, Roger Weins of Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, reported that measurements made on the rocks in this scoured-out feature called Goulburn suggest a basaltic composition. “These may be pieces of basalt within a sedimentary deposit,” Weins said. Curiosity began a twoyear prime mission on Mars when the Mars Science Laboratory spacecraft delivered the car-size rover to its landing target inside Gale Crater on Aug. 5 PDT (Aug. 6 EDT). The mission will use 10 science instruments on the rover to assess whether the area has ever offered environmental conditions favorable for microbial life. In a career spanning more than 70 years, Ray Bradbury inspired genera-

tions of readers to dream, think and create. A prolific author of hundreds of short stories and nearly 50 books, as well as numerous poems, essays, operas, plays, teleplays and screenplays, Bradbury was one of the most celebrated writers of our time. His groundbreaking works include “Fahrenheit 451,” “The Martian Chronicles,” “The Illustrated

Man,” “Dandelion Wine,” and “Something Wicked This Way Comes.” He wrote the screenplay for John Huston’s classic film adaptation of “Moby Dick,” and was nominated for an Academy Award. He adapted 65 of his stories for television’s The Ray Bradbury Theater, and won an Emmy for his teleplay of “The Halloween Tree.”

JPL manages the Mars Science Laboratory/Curiosity for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. The rover was designed, developed and assembled at JPL, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. More information about Curiosity is online at: http:// www.nasa.gov/msl and http:// mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl.

Public Health Department Unveils 2012 Quality of Life Index - Aug. 27 Pasadena Public Health Department’s 120th anniversary of protecting the health and wellness of Pasadenaarea residents will be celebrated when the Department releases its 2012 Quality of Life Index report during a special celebration beginning at 1:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 27, in the Pasadena Central Library’s Donald R. Wright Auditorium, 285 E. Walnut Street. Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard will help open the festivities along with Dr. Eric Walsh, Public Health Department Director, who will also talk about the 2012 Pasadena/Altadena Quality of Life Index. “As we celebrate 120 years of Pasadena’s Public Health Department, we are encouraged by the great strides for overall improved health that has been made

by the City, yet we are looking forward with great excitement to what possibilities the future holds,” Dr. Walsh said. “The scientific literature around public health has increased our understanding as to the root causes of many chronic diseases and the environmental and behavioral factors that determine health. Our Quality of Life report outlines where Pasadena and Altadena stands on key indicators and helps to begin the discussion around how we can make improvements.” The report looks at income, employment, housing and education data as key social and economic factors that affect and influence the quality of life and the overall health of a community. Among the report’s key findings are: There has been a 79.3%

reduction in unhealthy air quality days since 2002 in Pasadena. In Pasadena, the number of high school graduates decreased 6% since 2007, and those with less than a high school diploma increased 4%. Almost 25% of the nonelderly adult population in Pasadena has no medical insurance. Copies of the report will be available for distribution Aug. 27. To download previous issues of the report, go to www.cityofpasadena. net/qualityoflifeindex or call (626) 744-6177. Light refreshments will be served. Seating in the Donald R. Wright Auditorium is limited. For more information about the Pasadena Public Health Department go to www.cityofpasadena.net/ publichealth.

California High School Exit Exam Results Show Continued Growth

95 Percent of Students Meet Graduation Requirement The percentage of students from the Class of 2012 meeting the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) graduation requirement increased slightly over last year to 95 percent, marking the sixth straight year of improving performance, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today. “When 95 percent of California students are hitting the mark—despite the tremendous challenges we face and the work we still have to do— there’s an awful lot going right in our public schools,” Torlakson said. “I congratulate the students who succeeded on this test, the teachers who provided invaluable instruction, and the parents who gave their support and encouragement.” The CAHSEE is administered each year to ensure that students who graduate from public high schools demonstrate competency in reading, writing, and mathematics. Students who do not pass the CAHSEE in grade ten have two opportunities in grade eleven and up to five opportunities in grade twelve to pass the exam. The preliminary 2011-12 results—which are for the July, October, November, and December 2011 and the February, March, and May 2012 test administrations—show increased passing rates among most demographic subgroups of students by the end of their senior year. Some of the largest gains were made by African American and Hispanic students. Overall, about 95 percent, or 424,480 students, in the Class of 2012 successfully passed both the English-language arts (ELA) and the mathematics portions of the CAHSEE by the end of their senior year. This was an increase of 0.8 of a percent-

age point over the previous year (See Tables 1 and 2) and an increase of 4.6 percentage points since the Class of 2006, the first class required to pass the CAHSEE. “While I’m happy about the progress made by the Class of 2012, I still have concerns for the Class of 2013, the Class of 2014, and all the classes that will follow,” Torlakson said. “We have made solid improvement, but schools and districts are facing some unprecedented challenges right now. Overcrowded classrooms, shorter school years, and fewer teachers are in store for us unless we stop the cuts to education funding and begin restoring some of what has been cut in recent years.” Results for the exam, which is one of several state and local graduation requirements for all students, will be provided at the school, district, county, and state levels and will be posted on the CDE CAHSEE Summary Results Web page. Individual student CAHSEE results are confidential and are not included in the Internet posting. This year’s overall passing rate did not include students with disabilities as these students are currently exempt from meeting the CAHSEE requirement, except for taking the exam in grade ten to meet state and federal requirements. Many of the students, however, continue to take the exam. For the Class of 2012, the passing rate for students with disabilities was 55.5 percent compared to 56.3 percent last year and 47.8 percent for the Class of 2006 (See Table 3). Among African Americans, 91.9 percent of the Class of 2012 passed the exam, an increase of 2.3 percentage points over the Class of 2011

and 8.2 percentage points over the Class of 2006. Equally significant were gains made by Hispanic or Latino students of the Class of 2012, who had passing rates of 93.1 percent, an increase of 1.4 percentage points over the Class of 2011 and 7.6 points over the Class of 2006. Asian students passed the test at a rate of 97.8 percent or 0.7 of a percentage point improvement over last year; and white students passed at a rate of 98.6 percent, or 0.4 of a percentage point increase over last year. The percentage of students passing the CAHSEE in the tenth grade, which is the first opportunity they have to take the exam, has steadily increased as well. Some 83 percent of the Class of 2014 has already passed the ELA portion, compared to 82.4 percent of the Class of 2013 (See Table 4). For mathematics, the passage rate for firsttime test takers in the Class of 2014 was 83.6 percent, compared to 82.7 percent of the Class of 2013. The gap between Hispanic and white students has narrowed by 12.5 percentage points from the Class of 2006 to the Class of 2014 (who were tenth graders this past school year) for the ELA portion of the CAHSEE. For the mathematics portion, the gap between Hispanic and white students has narrowed by 12.9 percentage points from the Class of 2006 to the Class of 2014. Similarly, the gap between African American and white students has narrowed by 7.5 percentage points from the Class of 2006 to the Class of 2014 in ELA. And in mathematics, the gap between African American and white students has narrowed by 10.5 percentage points from the Class of 2006 to the Class of 2014.

US Forest Service to Resume Wildfire Night Flying in Southern California Next Year

-Photo by Terry Miller

Beginning next year the U.S. Forest Service will contract a helicopter capable of fighting wildfire at night in a move to strengthen the agency’s capability to suppress fires and better protect firefighters and communities in Southern California. “We have made this important decision very carefully,” said Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell. “We have studied night operations from every angle—risk management, business and operations—and we have concluded we can conduct night operations safely and effectively.” The helicopter will augment those that the Forest Service currently uses on an as-needed basis under established agreements with several organizations in Southern California. This new contracting helicopter will be used by the Forest Service exclusively for firefighting operations thereby ensuring availability of a night-flying helicopter in the future. The helicopter, which will be based in Southern California, will support wildfire suppression on Forest Service-protected lands, including communities and homes within and adjacent to the Angeles, Cleveland, and San Bernardino National Forests, and the southern half of the Los Padres National Forest. Initially, the helicopter will be equipped to drop water and retardant. In the future, mission capability can expand to include incident emergency medical transport, prescribed burning, and aerial supervision of aircraft traffic in the air above an incident. The decision follows ex-

tensive analyses that indicate helicopter night operations can keep down the costs and risks of wildfires by helping keep fires small. The Forest Service Helicopter Night Operations Study identified 130 mitigation measures that would need to be addressed before designing, implementing, and operating a safe helicopter night operations program. These aircraft often fly just a few hundred feet off the ground over steep terrain amidst heavy smoke, high heat, power lines, towers and trees. The contracted pilots and crew will train in night missions before going operational in 2013. The Angeles and San Bernardino National Forests together have well over 200 fires annually. The U.S. Forest Service, Department of the Interior, Department of Defense and FEMA continue to respond aggressively to support efforts to protect life, public safety and aid in community recovery from wildfires and subsequent flash flooding in multiple Western states. The departments, in partnerships with states and local agencies, have developed a cohesive strategy to respond to the increase in wildfires in recent years by focusing on: Restoring and maintaining resilient landscapes. Through forest and rangeland restoration activities such as mechanical thinning and controlled burns, officials can make forests and rangelands healthier and less susceptible to catastrophic fire. Creating fire-adapted communities. The Forest Service, the Department of the Interior and their partners are working with communities to

reduce fire hazards around houses to make them more resistant to wildfire threats. Responding to Wildfires. This element considers the full spectrum of fire management activities and recognizes the differences in missions among local, state, tribal and Federal agencies. On average, the USDA Forest Service and the Department of the Interior bureaus respond to about 16,500 wildfires per year that occur on land under their jurisdiction and assist state and local agencies in responding to a significant number of the approximately 60,000 wildfires per year that occur on land under their jurisdiction. Federal firefighters, aircraft, and ground equipment are strategically assigned to parts of the country as the fire season shifts across the nation. Firefighting experts will continuously monitor conditions and move these assets as necessary to be best positioned and increase initial response capabilities. In addition, federal agencies are conducting accelerated restoration activities nationwide aimed at healthier forests and reduced fire risks in the years to come. Federal land managers are also helping communities prepare for wildfire. Federal partnerships with state, tribal and local agencies strengthen preparedness programs, such as Firewise http://www.firewise.org/ and Ready Set Go! http://www.iafc.org/readySetGo that helps families and communities prepare for and survive wildfire. You can also visit FEMA's Ready. gov http://www.ready.gov, to learn more about steps you and your family can take now to be prepared for an emergency.

Back to School Safety Tips for Parents to Discuss with their Youngsters - LASD The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (http://www.missingkids.com) offers the following safety tips for parents to discuss with their youngsters: Travel with a friend, or better yet, a group of friends when riding your bike or walking to or from school or other destinations. If a stranger offers you a ride somewhere, say no, and run away. Adults should define “stranger” and give safety tip examples to help youth, especially young ones, know what you mean. If someone follows you on foot, get away as quickly as you can. Go to someone’s house you know, or run to other people, or just run away. If someone is following you in a car, turn around and go in the opposite direction or take a path where a car would not go. Never leave school or any other extracurricular activity or event with someone who makes you feel uncomfortable. Moms or dads should tell their youngster that it is okay in these circumstances to not ride home, but

that also means adults should have an established communications method along with these safety tip guidelines so that the kid does not end up stranded or alone. If a stranger tells you that there is an emergency or that a family member is hurt or that a pet has been in an accident, always check with your mom or dad or other trusted adults. This is a common trick used by many molesters or kidnappers. For more information about safety tips contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department www.lasd. org , your local police or sheriff’s station, or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at http://www.missingkids.com More Safety Tips: Adults should establish “safe houses” where kids feel comfortable in knocking on their door at any time a situation warrants it. Be sure to get approval from the neighbors/ homeowners first before designating a home as a “safe house.” If possible, have a neighborhood safety tip meeting and have residents agree to watch after

one another. Parents should be cautious about blatant use of a child’s name on a back pack or jacket. Kids sometimes believe that a person can’t be a stranger if they know them by name, when the reality is that their name was easily readable on their attire or the individual heard a youngster’s name mentioned. Adults should understand that boys are at just as greatest of risk as girls. It is a common safety tip misconception that child molesters or perpetrators are typically men and seek only girls. Molesters come in all ages and both genders, and their victims can be of either sex. Parents should begin reinforcing these safety tips as soon as a kid is old enough to understand, and above all, ensure that their child feels comfortable enough in discussing these issues, their concerns or fears, or any potentially inappropriate events that have possibly transpired. Awareness of these safety tips can help kids be less susceptible to any stranger dangers.

Team Red White & Blue Making an Impact for Area Veterans Our nation’s veterans have made incredible sacrifices in Afghanistan and Iraq over the past 10 years of war, though after returning from deployments and leaving military service, they may face unexpected challenges as they reintegrate into civilian life. While many veterans successfully make this transition, others unfortunately find themselves fighting new battles – against invisible wounds such as Post Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury, depression, unemployment, and homelessness. These challenges can be compounded by the need to cope with visible wounds or service-related injuries. In the military, our service members are trained to look out for and take care of their fellow unit members. Leaders are taught to counsel their soldiers and sailors through professional and personal issues, helping them navigate through the difficulties of military life. Veterans leaving the military are leaving behind this provided support system and can find difficulty knowing who to turn to when challenges arise. One organization, Team Red White & Blue, believes the most effective way to support our veterans through their transition is by creating a community where members can rely on one another. I am a US Army veteran who heads the Los Angeles area community of Team RWB (as the organization is also known) that covers Los Angeles and Orange counties. Team Red White & Blue’s mission is to create a strong network between local communities with its veterans who are reintegrating into civilian life. Using physical fitness and social events, Team RWB builds these bonds as well as fostering team “espritde-corps”. They use physical

By Stephen Trush activity as a way to promote a healthy physical and psychological state while also allowing veterans to set goals and maintain a degree of activity and normalcy. Team RWB members are veterans, athletes, and concerned citizens who want to volunteer. Membership is free, but comes at the price of time and sweat because the biggest contribution a Team member can make is by being there for one another. Team Red White & Blue members are there for each other. We hold weekly training sessions around the Los Angeles area in order to keep each other physically fit, get to know one another, and strengthen our bonds. One week, we may hike in the San Gabriel Mountains and run along Santa Monica Beach the next week. Other weeks we may swim in the ocean or workout at a local park. Our veterans also inspire and support each other, completing marathons, triathlons, with volunteers offering support by coaching, driving support vans, and offering words of encouragement. Twice this year, California members have guided blind Team RWB veterans to complete half-marathons. The community extends beyond athletic events. Through friendships built at these events, Team RWB members never wonder who they can call if they need something or want someone to listen to them. Many volunteers realize that their unique experiences and connections in the community allow them to assist veterans in ways ranging from job and house searches to babysitter referrals and shopping recommendations. Members of Team RWB are also there for other like-minded organizations. In July, several athletes and veterans volunteered at the

Joggin’ For Frogmen 5K in San Diego to benefit the Navy Seal Foundation and the Special Operations Warrior Fund. On September 9th, we will partner with the Travis Manion Foundation as they host 9/11 Heroes Runs in Orange County and San Diego. These runs, created in remembrance of the lives lost on September 11th 2001, will raise funds for the Travis Manion Foundation’s programs which provide emergency assistance, scholarships, and other direct financial support when a family or veteran is in need. Members supported the Stand Down run by Veterans Village in San Diego in order to provide services to some of our nation’s estimated 200,000 homeless veterans. We will be volunteering to support the San Gabriel Valley Veterans Employment Committee’s 2nd Annual Homeless Veterans Stand Down in November. We will continue to build this community in the Los Angeles area. If you want to become involved, then sign up at www.teamrwb.org. Some of our volunteers initially wonder to themselves “How can I relate to a veteran? What do I know about combat? What can I do?” The answer is that being there, showing your support and spending your time and energy alongside a veteran is the first step to helping them through their transition. The issues that they face are not just solved by donating money, but having someone who will show up when they need someone to have their back. They showed up when our country needed them, now it is your turn. More information about Team Red White and Blue is located at www.teamrwb.org. Local events for Southern California are posted on Facebook at http://www.facebook. com/TeamRWBSoCal .

San Gabriel Council Votes to Contract with San Gabriel Humane Society The San Gabriel City Council voted 4-1 Tuesday to authorize a contract with the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society. The SGVHS, which

has been in San Gabriel for 88 years and faced considerable financial problems had a huge show of support on Tuesday. City staff’s recommenda-

tion was to enter into a 22-month contract with the Pasadena Humane Society that it said would save the city $15,000 over the contract period.

Surgeon Under Investigation by State Continued from page 12

emergency health care providers are prohibited from attempting to collect disputed balances from health plan enrollees - a practice known as balance billing. The California Supreme Court has made it clear that any such dispute is between the health plan and provider; a health plan enrollee cannot be placed in the middle (Prospect v. Northridge). The order can be found here: http://healthhelp.ca.gov/library/reports/ news/orderpi052912.pdf People v. Martello Background On December 30, 2010, the DMHC issued a Cease and Desist Order against Jeannette Martello, M.D., a South Pasadena board certified plastic surgeon, to stop her from illegally collecting or attempting to collect payments from health plan enrollees for emergency services. A DMHC investigation found that Dr. Martello had balance-billed multiple health plan enrollees for emergency room services provided at Huntington Memorial Hospital in

Pasadena and Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank. In defiance of the order, Dr. Martello allegedly continued the practice and filed multiple complaints in court against her patients. In an unrelated mat-

“Jeannette Martello no longer has privileges at Huntington Hospital”

ter, Dr. Martello has been accused of negligence in a breast reconstruction surgery where the patient contacted infection and alleges that Dr. Martello put the patient’s other breast at risk. In August 2011, DMHC filed an action in the Superior Court, People v. Jeannette Martello, seeking three things: 1), to stop Dr. Martello from illegally

balance-billing health plan enrollees; 2) restitution for her patients who were illegally balance-billed; and, 3) dismissal of any and all legal actions against her patients who may have been balance-billed. The injunction granted prevents Dr. Martello from collecting or attempting to collect payments from health plan enrollees while the case is pending. The DMHC regulates managed care health plans in California, protects the rights of approximately 20 million health plan enrollees, educates consumers on their health care rights and responsibilities, and preserves the financial stability of the managed health care system. Since 2000, the department has helped more than 1 million Californians resolve health plan problems through its Help Center. Ron Shinkman, who wrote about Martello and her tactics in the trade publication Payers & Providers, said he had never seen a more litigious doctor in 19 years of healthcare reporting.

Rescue Log Sierra Madre Search and Rescue

During the month of July, Sierra Madre Search and Rescue (SMSR) responded to 18 calls for assistance. Details on a selection of the calls are described below. Busy 4th of July: After participating in the Sierra Madre 4th of July parade SMSR responded to several calls in the local area. The first was a mountain biker who had fallen on Cardiac Hill at Chantry Flats. The subject was located, treated for hip and shoulder injuries and transported to a waiting ambulance. While involved with the first call a second report was received about an injured hiker on the 1st Water Trail at Chantry Flats. The subject was located, treated for injuries and transported to the Chantry Flats parking lot. Busier July 9th: With 4 operations, July 9th was the busiest day of the month. The first call was a request from Altadena SAR for assistance in locating 3 overdue hiker. SMSR search the Mt. Wilson Trail and Chantry Flats area. The hikers were eventually found, unharmed, in the Eaton Canyon Area. The second call again was a

request from Altadena SAR for assistance in locating a woman and her dog in the Sam Merrill Trail area. Both subject were found, rehydrated and escorted to the trailhead. The third call was a sprained ankle at Chantry Flats. SMSR responded and assisted Sierra Madre FD with the subject. The last call of the day was an individual having trouble breathing at Chantry Flats. Again, SMSR responded and assisted Sierra Madre FD with the subject. July 15th - 2 injured at Hermit Falls: SMSR sent ground and litters crews to Hermit Falls. The 1st subject had bi-lateral ankle fractures. The subject was treated, packaged in a litter and airlifted to Huntington Memorial Hospital. The 2nd subject had minor ankle injuries and was escorted to the Chantry Flats parking lot. July 25th Mt. Langley Search: The team responded to a request from Inyo County for assistance in searching for an overdue hiker in the Mt. Langley area near Mt. Whitney. SMSR provided both ground crews and overhead staff to help manage the search. Unfortunately, the subject was found deceased just below Old Army Pass. SMSR ground crews were some of the first on scene helped with the recovery. July 27th - 1 injured at Hermit Falls: SMSR dis-

patched ground and litter crews down to Hermit Falls. The subject was located, treated, packaged in a litter and airlifted by LACoSD Air-5. In our March Article we reported that a new class of probationary members had started training to become full members of Sierra Madre Search and Rescue. Over the past six months several members have dropped out leaving a total of 7 members. The class has received training in rappelling, ascending a rope, setting an anchor, tracking, radios, litter wheel, litter tie in, helicopter operations, land navigation and knots. Starting in February they were judged field qualified and available to respond to calls. Their first opportunities were the 4th of July call outs described earlier in this article. For over 60 years the all-volunteer Sierra Madre Search and Rescue team has been responding to calls for help in the local mountains and beyond. Funded entirely by private donations, SMSR provides a range of public programs on wilderness safety in addition to its search and rescue activities. The Team never charges for any of its services. For more information, including how to arrange a wilderness safety demonstration for your school or group, visit www.smsr.org.

Energy-Efficient City of El Monte Receives Leed Gold Level Certification El Monte is only the third city in the San Gabriel Valley to receive the highlycoveted Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold level in the energy leader model. LEED is a national rating system used to encourage the development of sustainable and efficient buildings. The widely recognized LEED program encourages sustainable building practices. The partnership between the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments and Southern California Edison aims to bring energy savings to municipalities throughout the Valley. Edison provides incentives to local governments to reduce energy usage in the region by offering enhanced rebates for installing energy efficien-

cy measures in municipal facilities, technical assistance and innovative public education. Since 2004, City staff has worked diligently to save El Monte 84,888,676 kilowatthours (kWh). The installation of two energy-efficient variable speed drive and controls on pool pumps for the indoor and outdoor pools at the City’s Aquatics Center and the retrofitting of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system in City Hall were among the projects that enabled El Monte to receive LEED Gold level certification. The pool pumps led to a savings of 326,243 kWh each year, which translates to $45,026 annually. Moreover, the installation of the pumps came at no cost to

the City. The replacement of the 60-ton chiller in City Hall saves 700,905 kWh ($77,100 per year). In 2009, City staff worked creatively in securing $1.1 million in federal stimulus money to fund the City Hall energy project. Other energy-efficient projects included the replacing of illuminated street signs with reflective ones. The new City of El Monte Public Works Yard, which will be ready for use in October, is an all energy-efficient facility. “The City of El Monte is committed to sustainability in community development through the incorporation of green principles in the placement, design and construction of new facilities and major renovation projects,” Mayor Andre Quintero said.

Sierra Madre PD

Thursday, August 16 At 12:05am an officer stopped a vehicle with an inoperable headlight at Foothill Boulevard and Michillinda Avenue. The officer soon determined that the driver was on probation for robbery and ordered all 4 occupants out of the vehicle. During a subsequent search of the vehicle the officer found a loaded .38 caliber revolver on the rear floorboard, an open container of beer and a baggy containing marijuana. A male, 32 years of age and a female 19 years of age were arrested for Felon in Possession of a Firearm. It was later determined that the male is an active member of the South Side Pasa Gang. Saturday, August 18 Earlier this month, Sierra Madre residents moved to a new home in Monrovia. As they packed, they placed important documents and jewelry in a separate bag that they intended to transport personally to the new address. However they accidentally left this bag inside an item of furniture that was subsequently moved by employees of a moving company they hired. Days later, while unpacking, the owners discovered the some of the jewelry was missing from the bag. Sunday, August 19 Units responded to a 911 hang-up call in the 100 block of Esperanza Avenue. The investigation revealed that a verbal argument had taken place between two parties at the location. This escalated into a physical altercation in which one party grabbed the other and pushed her. The victim requested a private persons arrest for the misdemeanor and a male, 52 years of age was arrested for battery.

Man Intervenes in Domestic Dispute, Suffers Stab Wounds The Arcadia Police Department had officers at a local hospital in the early morning hours of Sunday August 19, 2012 on a prior investigation. The officers saw a victim of a stabbing brought in by family members. Officers contacted the victim, a 43-year-old male Hispanic from Arcadia, while he was being treated for several stab wounds to his chest, back, and left arm. The victim said he was exercising at Eisenhower Park, in Arcadia, when he came across a male and female arguing. He intervened and stopped the argument. As the victim was walking away, he

was rushed from behind and felt what he described as a poke on his back. The victim turned around and the suspect stabbed the victim in the chest. The victim put up his left arm in an attempt to defend from being stabbed again, but the suspect slashed the victims’ arm. The suspect then ran off into the park. The victim said he did not see what the suspect used to stab him, but believes it was a knife. The victim said the stabbing took place sometime after midnight on Sunday August 19, 2012. The victim described the suspect as a male Hispanic in his thirties with

dark short hair and a thin beard with no mustache. The suspect was further described as being 5’10 weighing 140 pounds with a medium build. The suspect was wearing dark colored jeans with a long sleeve red shirt and had a black backpack on. The investigation is continuing by Arcadia Police Department Detectives. Anyone with information related to this case is asked to call the Arcadia Police Department at (626)574-5150. You can also submit crime tips and information via text, phone, or web to LA Regional Crime Stoppers, 800-222-TIPS (8477).

710 Extension Continued from page 1

freeway extension: “I strongly urge you to cease all activity relating to the advancement of the SR 710 extension. The SR 710 Study process has been mired in controversy since its inception. I have personally witnessed actions and activities by proponents of a tunnel option, which have been questionable at best, but more accurately, would be portrayed as biased and tainted,” said Portantino. Representatives of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) have routinely misrepresented important information while hiding the true cost and benefit of this project from the public. A 710 tunnel option would be a project of historic magnitude and tremendous cost to the taxpayers of California. There cannot be even a hint of impropriety or manipulation involved in such a project. Because local planners have ignored the direction of the federal government, their own state traffic protocols, and basic common sense, it is time for leaders to step in and make the bold decision to put an end to this project.” For over a decade, Portantino has been one of the most vocal critics of the 710 tunnel and been on the receiving end of misinfor-

mation from 710 planners promoting the project. He has testified before the California Transportation Commission and the Metropolitan Transportation Administration expressing concerns over the process, cost and impact that a 710 extension would have on California. He currently represents the 44th Assembly District which encompasses the majority of the 710 study area. “The recent state audit highlighted the complete lack of trust that I have for the folks shepherding the 710 corridor and this historically massive project. If these folks can’t be trusted to fix a roof, how can we trust them to build a $15 billion dollar tunnel,” commented Portantino. At the heart of Portantino’s criticism is the refusal of tunnel proponents to come clean with the true cost and true benefit of the project before moving forward. “Local leaders were told back in 2006 that this project would not move forward until it was determined to be financially feasible. But every time planners start to answer the question of cost vs. benefit, those reports are changed; cut short or the work is deleted. In my opinion, it’s a willful omission of facts that would contradict the necessity and viability of this project and it has to stop,” explained Portan-

tino. In his letter, Portantino details how the project itself contradicts Caltrans very own traffic protocols and fails to comply with the direction of the Federal Highway Administration. “When you have a project of this magnitude, with this many unanswered questions, manipulations and false information, one has to wonder why decision makers aren’t immediately putting a halt to this insanity. It’s a fraud being perpetrated upon the taxpayers of California at the expense of taxpayers and the quality of life of those neighborhoods in Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley which will be devastated by a project that is unwelcome and disastrous,” concluded the Assemblymember. As a Councilmember and Mayor of La Cañada Flintridge, Portantino asked the City to take a formal position opposing the 710 freeway in 1999. He has been a guest speaker at many “no on 710” meetings and a staunch defender of the communities in Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley that would be adversely affected by the construction and completion of a 710 extension. Portantino has been a central figure in bringing more sunshine and accountability to the legislature.

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.
