A New Beginning for Seniors: Santa Teresita’s Neighborhood of Care BY ARIANNA LOCATELL

BY TERRY MILLER Maestro Victor Vener’s concert season finale was not only a sellout on Saturday night at Santa Anita but it was a skillful homage to the prolific John Williams and the movie business which has helped thrust him into legendery status. From Superman to Star Wars, War Horse to Indiana Jones, Harry Potter… the list goes on. Williams’ countless scores have touched each and every one of us at some point in our lives. Some of Williams’most successful film scores were brough to life Saturday during the cool evening summer finale at Cal Phil’s new John Williams’ Music and poetry by Bernard Dadie performed by Sarah Culberson led to an emotional season finale for Cal Phil. -Photo by Terry Miller

Dorothy's Place Homemade

By Dorothy Denne A few weeks ago, I wrote that I was starting to sort some of my "stuff" into "get rid of" and "keep a while longer". That sparked memories. I wrote about a few. Last week I wrote of my first experiences with the telephone vs my more current ones. Ready for some more? Yesterday I wasn't sorting, I was cleaning and a memory was sparked. I was hot, tired and hungry. I had worked hard and I deserved a treat. I went to the freezer and took out the carton of ice cream. It was frozen so hard that I could hardly scoop it

out. As I jabbed and dug, I longed for the smooth, creamy-rich treat I remember from my early childhood days on the farm. Summer Sundays were when cousins would come to visit and we would have homemade ice cream. We had our own fresh cream and eggs. Usually we made vanilla and Mother would make her own chocolate syrup. If fruit was in season, we might have wild strawberry or peach or cherry. Dad would buy ice from the icehouse. In winter they cut big chunks of ice from the river and took them to the icehouse where they were stacked and covered with sawdust and straw to stay frozen for the summer. Mom would mix the ingredients and pour them into a metal canister. The lid had a paddle attached so that when it was in place, the paddle blades were also. The

canister was then set down into the center of the wood, bucket-like outer part. Dad would pack ice in the space between the canister and the wood bucket, then would place a bar with a handle across the top. It had gears that fastened to the canister lid and it clamped onto the bucket. Then Dad added rock salt to the ice and threw a burlap sack over the top to rest one hand on while cranking with the other. Everyone would take turns cranking, including the kids. In the beginning it was easy but as the ice cream began to "make", it became harder and harder to turn the handle so Dad would take over again. Now we kids would take turns sitting on the freezer to keep it in place while he turned. When he said, "It's ready!" we gathered around with our bowls for a treat that can only be experienced, not described.

Ann Meyers Drysdale Has the Credentials of a Winner Olympian, Superstars Winner, General Manager in the WNBA By harry sneider Miss Bodybuilding World Lynn Conkwright gave us a call to help her train for the ABC Superstars in 1982. This tiny lady was only 5’1”. She had muscles, charisma and the drive of a champion. Lynn was a world class bodybuilder who wanted to prove herself against the greatest female athletes in the world. This competition included running, cycling, basketball, tennis, rowing, as well as an obstacle course. Her competitors were some of the greatest athletes of that time like Martina Navratilova, Nancy Lieberman, as well as the champion Ann Meyers. Ann was a legend from the 1976 Olympics where she won a silver medal in basketball. Ann was a pioneer in breaking into women’s sports in 1972 with the Title IX. This opened the door for women to have equal footing in athletic competitions. She received a scholarship to UCLA where she became an All-American as well as competed for the United States in the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. After the Olympics there was a tribute gathering at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles where I had a chance to say a few words of congratulations for her achievements. During the time I was there James Butts, a UCLA graduate as well as a silver medalist in the triple jump, asked me if I could be his coach. I was coaching Dwight Stones,

a high jumper, who also went to UCLA. Ann has exhibited a positive attitude in helping athletes achieve their potential in sports as well as life. She has written a wonderful autobiography called “You Let Some Girl Beat You?” It’s available on Amazon.com. Ann and Don fell in love at the 1982 Superstars where we were coaching Lynn. Don Drysdale, a pitching legend for the Dodgers, had a warm engaging personality and as a trainer of baseball players I had a chance to spend some quality time with him. It was very sad to see Don pass away at a young age. Ann had three children with Don. They are all winners in life because their parents were champions in not only sport but in living. Recently at the Southern California Broadcasters Luncheon my wife Sarah and I had a chance to visit with Ann some 30 years

later after Superstars. Ann is very involved in basketball as well as keeping her family in shape. We are thrilled to know Ann as a winner. She has much to offer athletes and all of us in life. Ann has: 1. Shown character throughout her life. 2. She did not let personal challenges get her down. 3. She has offered positive comments on how to be happy in living. 4. She has passed on her knowledge of basketball and positive living to young athletes. 5. Her future looks very bright as a broadcaster and as a speaker. 6. She continues to stay in shape. 7. She depends on a higher power to guide her. You are made to win. Let your life be an inspiration. Start your fitness routine today.

By Terry Miller Cross Connection & Water Pollution Control Program manages drinking water protection throughout the County, which includes to a large extent the use of backflow prevention devices. An ongoing problem that has plagued this industry (plumbing\backflow protection) is in the theft of these devices. Assembly Bill 2298 http://www. leginfo.ca.gov/pub/11-12/ bill/asm/ab_2251-2300/ ab_2298_bill_20120625_ amended_sen_v96.html has been proposed in the hopes of stopping these types of thefts along with fire hydrants and water meters. The metal scrap yards where these devices end up is the focus behind the bill. Carlos Borja, MPH, REHS, Chief Environmental Health Specialist with Cross Connection & Water Pollution Control Program at the Department of Public Health, Bureau of Environmental Protection says “We typically receive monthly calls regarding stolen backflow prevention devices. The latest was here in El Monte whereupon visiting the site manager I found out that he had reported it to El Monte Police Dept. I paid the local metal salvage yard a visit just to see on the off chance

if that device had ended up there. To my thinking it would not. What would be the chances of that? But it was worth look. Unfortunately the device was not sitting there waiting for me to discover it, but what I did find was a surprisingly sophisticated computer inventory system. As individuals bring scrap metal to these facilities the scrap yards routinely take a copy of the person’s DL, a picture of the person, the vehicle with license plate and a picture of the person with the metal scrap. I visited a couple of these scrap yards and found that most of the larger outfits have this system.” Borja decided to visit a couple of these local scarp yards on a weekly basis just to see if any type of backflow device showed up. The first week he found some but they had come from a legitimate plumbing outfit. However, the following week he discovered four backflow prevention devices in a pile of brass that had been received over the weekend. The manager did not know who brought them in but was going to do some research. Borja recorded the serial numbers off of each and the manager separated the devices from the rest of the pile. Later Borja looked up the serial

numbers on the county database (they inventory all backflow devices for the purposes of regulating the annual testing of those devices) and found that they came from a local property in Duarte. Borja noticed new copper installation and new backflow devices had been installed when he visited that property in Duarte. Talking with the manager he mentioned that over the weekend his place of business had been the target by individuals saw cutting the copper and brass pipe. The next business down the street was also a victim of these thefts. Both owners had contacted the police department. Borja contacted the police department and notified them that the devices he found at the scrap yard were, in fact, stolen from the property in Duarte. With thefts like these, the Public Health Department should be contacted along with the Police Department and not the Police Department only. With a coordinated effort between the three, the Health Department, the Police\Sheriffs Department and the metal salvage yard a reasonable case can be made against those individual(s) who target businesses for the copper\brass.

Portantino’s Bill Calling for Better Disaster Planning Passes Senate Assemblymember Anthony Portantino’s bill to improve emergency and disaster preparedness in California was approved today in the Senate on a unanimous vote of 32 to 0. AB 1650 requires public utilities to hold comprehensive disaster preparedness meetings every two years with the counties and cities they service in order to improve readiness and better prepare for natural disasters. In addition, the California Public Utilities Commission will help set standards for each utility to meet. “In the wake of the fierce winds and power outages that caused so

much damage in Southern California late last year, we need to be better organized for the next disaster,” explained Assemblymember Portantino. “The purpose of these meetings is to inform local and county governments and the public about emergency preparedness plans and give them the opportunity to review and improve those plans. In this last disaster, communications were often incomplete or confusing and much of the public had no idea what was going on. Valid questions were raised whether our local utilities were ready. We all know another disaster will hit our communities

and we need to be ready.” Under AB 1650, investor owned utilities will be required to begin their disaster preparedness meetings within three months of the legislation becoming law. A report commissioned by Southern California Edison earlier this year said the utility could be better prepared for a major disaster and could have cut its response time to the December wind disaster if it had been. AB 1650 goes back to the Assembly for brief concurrence before heading to Governor Brown for signature.

USADA announced today that Lance Armstrong has chosen not to move forward with the independent arbitration process and as a result has received a lifetime period of ineligibility and disqualification of all competitive results from August 1, 1998 through the present, as the result of his anti-doping rule violations stemming from his involvement in the United States Postal Service (USPS) Cycling Team Doping Conspiracy (USPS Conspiracy). Following the dismissal of Armstrong’s lawsuit on Monday, August 20, 2012, by the federal court in Austin, Texas, Armstrong had until midnight on Thursday, August 23, to contest the evidence against him in a full evidentiary hearing with neutral arbitrators as provided by U.S. law. However, when given the opportunity to challenge the evidence against him, and with full knowledge of the consequences, Armstrong chose not to contest

the fact that he engaged in doping violations from at least August 1, 1998 and participated in a conspiracy to cover up his actions. As a result of Mr. Armstrong’s decision, USADA is required under the applicable rules, including the World Anti-Doping Code under which he is accountable, to disqualify his competitive results and suspend him from all future competition. “Nobody wins when an athlete decides to cheat with dangerous performance enhancing drugs, but clean athletes at every level expect those of us here on their behalf, to pursue the truth to ensure the win-at-all-cost culture does not permanently overtake fair, honest competition” said USADA CEO, Travis T. Tygart. “Any time we have overwhelming proof of doping, our mandate is to initiate the case through the process and see it to conclusion as was done in this case.”

This year, Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley celebrates 79 years as a vital part of the local San Gabriel Valley communities with an elegant Farm-to-Tableinspired dinner at a popular Pasadena restaurant. Supporters will dine on organic, sustainablysourced cuisine and mingle with fellow party goers in recognition of the vital health care services and accurate information Planned Parenthood provides. In a time of dramatic change for the health care landscape, Planned Parenthood is more important than ever to local families, and continues to expand services to meet the increased need for preventive care. “We’re here to ensure that nobody gets left behind as the health care framework in our country shifts,” said Sheri Bonner, President and CEO. “We’re grateful for our growing number of sup-

porters who value Planned Parenthood as a trusted place that women and families rely on for the critical services and tools needed to plan a healthy future.” Community members convene for the Fall Benefit, one of two annual events that celebrate the work of this essential organization. Over 41,000 local residents received highquality care at Planned Parenthood’s four local health centers and multiple satellite locations this past year. More than 95% of the health care services are preventive, including lifesaving cancer screenings, all FDA-approved methods of birth control, annual exams, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections and much more. Patron Chair, Joan T. Caillouette, reflects on the importance of the organization’s work, “Planned Parenthood provides essential family planning and reproductive health care services to thousands of women

and families in our local communities every year,” she said. “I’m thrilled to be part of an organization that is so committed to a world where everyone gets the care they need, no matter what.” Planned Parenthood supporters are passionate about investing in access to compassionate, comprehensive care to keep our communities healthy and thriving. Alongside Patron Chair Joan T. Caillouette and Benefit Chair, Fiona Harwich, many dynamic Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley leaders have joined the Benefit Committee, including Hilary Clark, Kate Clavijo, Lauren Frankel, Brooke Larsen Garlock, Kathy Gillespie, Pat Glazier, Monica Partridge, Eileen White Read, Jan Tranquada, and Felicia Williams.

San Gabriel Refuses Tax Suspension Measures for March Ballot The San Gabriel City Council on Tuesday, Aug. 23, refused to place two initiatives on the March 2013 ballot, citing “significant adverse financial impacts to the city” if the measures were approved by the voters. The Utility User Tax Suspension and Retirement Tax Suspension initiatives had sufficient signatures to qualify for the March 5, 2013 General Municipal Election. But City Attorney Robert L. Kress, who initially recommended the council to place the measures on the ballot, reversed his recommendation after a further review of the legal issues attached to the measures, as well as a recent development in the Police Officers’ Association’s lawsuit against the city. The council’s 5-0 vote at Tuesday’s meeting followed the Los Angeles County Superior Court’s decision to sustain the city’s objection to all of the individually named defendants in litigation filed by the San Gabriel Police Officers’ Association. According to City Manager Steven Preston, the court’s action means that all individual defendants, including individual council members and staff, are being dismissed and should not be able to be sued again.

Regarding the Retirement Tax Suspension, the SGPOA said it was committed to sharing the burden of rising pension costs with the city. The association goes on to say that “Members of the SGPOA took a 4 percent cut in retirement benefits in 2008, and we have now agreed to pay our portion of the retirement contribution.” The city’s departments and legal staff at Tuesday’s meeting detailed significant potential damage that would have been incurred if the two measures were placed on the ballot. And, citing the recent adoption of memoranda of understanding by the city’s four associations, the City Attorney noted that the measures as written were based on facts no longer in evidence. After discussing the proposed measures, the council approved the motion to refuse their placement on the March 2013 ballot “in light of significant legal and Constitutional flaws associated with these measures,” according to Preston.

Organizers hope to raise $300,000 through the event, which will provide food, shelter and medical care to homeless animals; nearly 12,000 of which are taken in by the humane society every year. Some 2,000 people and their dogs are expected to take part in the walk, which begins at 9 a.m. Walkers and their dogs can choose either a one-mile or three-mile route around the outside of the park before enjoying a free Fair & Pet Expo. Participants do not need a dog to join the fun—just a desire to help animals—and they can walk individually or form teams. “It’s great to see so many people in our community rally together and support our cause,” says Nicole Ring, Event Coordinator

for the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. “Each and every animal at the shelter is supported by their generosity. We’re looking forward to a great event this year.” Registration is free, but participants are encouraged to fundraise for the animals by creating personal web pages through the Wiggle Waggle Walk website and asking family, friends and co-workers for donations. Non-walkers, and those unable to attend the event, can also create fundraising web pages through this site. Entrants who raise $50 receive an official Wiggle Waggle Walk T-shirt. Check-in starts at 8 a.m. at the entrance to Brookside Park in Parking Lot I. The walk will begin at 9:00am and the Fair & Pet Expo will take place immediately after the walk until 1 p.m. The Fair will feature Muttley Crew’s dog agility show, K9 demonstrations by the Pasadena and Glendale Police Departments, a variety of pet product booths, pawtapping music, and fun dog contests. This year’s spon-

sors include Wells Fargo, VCA Animals Hospitals, Community Bank, Stumbaugh & Associates, Guess, Eye Care for Animals, TLC Pet Medical Center and Three Dog Bakery.

Federal Indictment Targets 27 for Narcotics Distribution

San Gabriel Valley Safe Streets Task Force Arrest 16 Federal Indictment Targets 27 For Narcotics Distribution Network, Including Members of an International Drug Trafficking Organization and Los Angeles County Street Gangs An investigation by the San Gabriel Valley Safe Streets Task Force resulted in the arrest of 16 of 27 defendants today who face federal narcotics charges for their roles in a methamphetamine distribution network, announced representatives from the agencies who jointly conducted the investigation at a press conference Thursday morning. The arrests this morning mark the culmination of an 16-month investigation by the San Gabriel Valley Safe Streets Gang Task Force, which is made up of agents and officers with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Pasadena Police Department, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives devoted a great deal of resources throughout this investigation. A federal grand jury returned an indictment in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. The indictment, which was unsealed this morning, charges a total of 27 defendants, several of whom were already in custody prior to today’s operation. The indictment outlines hundreds of overt acts that formed the basis for the conspiracy to manufacture; possess and

distribute large quantities of nearly pure methamphetamine. The indictment charges the defendants for their roles in the distribution of methamphetamine, the possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine; for conspiring to manufacture, possess with intent to distribute, and distribution of methamphetamine and maintaining drug-involved premises; all violations of the United States Code, Title 21. The indictment details the roles of each defendant in the methamphetamine distribution conspiracy involving members and associates of the La Familial Michoacán drug trafficking organization (or LFM) and gang members associated with Los Amables and Westside Pomona Malditos gang members. The indictment alleges that a main defendant, Jose Juan Garcia Barron, spent time between Los Angeles County and Mexico and controlled the importation of methamphetamine from Mexico to the United States where it was sold on the streets of Los Angeles County by networks made up of local gang members or their associates, who pay taxes to the Mexican Mafia. The drugs were imported in an unfinished or liquid state and were then converted for local distribution in a process known as or re-crystallization or “icing.” Investigators believe the drugs were imported by airplane, boats and in vehicles crossing the border and the quality of the methamphetamine was, in most cases, 99 percent pure.

The defendants range from alleged cartel members to street gang members or associates whose activity fueled violence in the communities in which they operated. In addition to today’s arrests, 13 search warrants were executed in Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. During the execution of the search warrants, investigators found quantities of methamphetamine, white rock substances, various pills not yet identified, drug paraphernalia and at least nine firearms. Searches are continuing throughout the morning. The federal defendants arrested today are expected to make their initial court appearances this afternoon in United States District Court in downtown Los Angeles. Many of the defendants face a ten year statutory maximum penalty of life in prison, if convicted, and some of the defendants face life in prison, if convicted on all charges. Several agencies participated in the execution of arrest and search warrants this morning, to include agents and officers with the Ontario Police Department; L.A. IMPACT; U.S. Immigration, Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations and the Los Angeles Police Department. This case is being prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles. An indictment contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty in court.

Los Angeles Sports Council Announces New Code of Conduct In an effort to create a more secure and enjoyable game-day experience for fans at local sports events, the Los Angeles Sports Council, in cooperation with sports venues, area teams, and law enforcement agencies,Monday announced the creation of the Southern California Fan Code of Conduct that has been approved by the Council’s recently created Task Force on Fan Behavior. The Task Force, which includes representatives of all local sports venues with a capacity of 10,000 or more, developed 10 easy-to-understand guidelines intended to foster a comfortable and safe atmosphere for spectators. Although most venues and teams already have their own codes of conduct, this is the first time a common code, which can subject violators to ejection or arrest, will apply to multiple sports facilities in the region. “This will not replace any existing codes of conduct but is intended as a streamlined, fan-friendly version whose rules will apply to all professional and collegiate sporting

events at our larger venues,” said Sports Council President David Simon. “Breaking any of these common sense rules may subject violators to ejection or arrest.” Each venue will be responsible for disseminating the code of conduct to its fans. The Task Force plans to produce a video utilizing local celebrities in support of this effort. Here is that Code of Conduct: The [Name of Team and/or Name of Facility and/ or Los Angeles Sports Council] supports the area’s outstanding collegiate and professional sports teams. In order to ensure a safe and celebratory environment, we ask that fans refrain from the following behavior at all events: Profanity or other offensive language, whether spoken or appearing on apparel, Smoking, other than in designated areas, Intoxication or excessive alcohol consumption, Bringing prohibited items into the venue, Throwing of items or liquids, Entering the playing field or court at any time, Fighting or other

No more swearing at players like David Beckham of LA Galaxy or you’ll be booted out of the game. No word yet on if the players are forbidden to swear. -Photo by Terry Miller

threatening behavior, Failure to retain ticket and/or present it to event staff if requested to do so, Resale of tickets at the venue, Violation of state or local laws Failure to comply may subject you to ejection or arrest. Fans are encouraged to report inappropriate behavior to team/venue personnel. We welcome your help in our efforts to provide an enjoyable experience for all guests.

Pasadena POPS Concludes Summer Season with Gershwin Pianist Kevin Cole and conductor Larry Blank join the Pasadena POPS and their newly-created JPL Chorus in a celebratory performance Gershwin on the Green at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden on September 8 at 7:30 pm. The Pasadena POPS finishes its summer concert series with George Gershwin’s powerhouse piano works Rhapsody in Blue and Concerto in F alongside Porgy and Bess, Foggy Day, I Got Rhythm and Strike Up the Band. Kevin Cole is regarded as one of the greatest interpreters of Gershwin’s music by critics and has been described by the Gershwin

family as the only pianist alive that comes close to performing Gershwin’s works as the composer did. Known as “America’s Pianist,” Cole has performed and recorded with orchestras around the world such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, National Symphony, BBC Concert Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, and more. His 1995 album Gershwin's Oh, Kay! with soprano Dawn Upshaw won the Gramophone Musical Album of the Year award. Larry Blank, who appeared with Marvin Hamlisch and the Pasadena POPS in front of recordbreaking crowds in July, is a conductor in high demand

amongst Broadway and pops orchestras; he and the Pasadena POPS’ late principal conductor Marvin Hamlisch were close colleagues. Blank was the original Broadway conductor for Hamlisch’s musical They’re Playing Our Song, and led the original international tour of A Chorus Line. He was also Hamlisch’s musical director throughout much of the 1980s. Saturday, September 8, 2012 | Gates open at 5:30pm for picnicking | Concert begins at 7:30pm Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Garden; 301 N. Baldwin Ave, Arcadia, CA Child tickets start at $10, adult tickets start at $20

City of Los Angeles Opposes 710 Tunnel – Politician Applauds Move Assemblymember Anothony Portantino on Tuesday said, “Today’s action underscores the tremendous growing wind against the 710 freeway and tunnel. Neighborhood activists from all over the San Gabriel Valley have

united to oppose this project. There have been more than enough legitimate public policy concerns raised about the viability of the 710 tunnel and the Los Angeles City Council stepped up and unanimously said NO Tunnel. It’s now

time for Caltrans, the MTA and the California Transportation Commission to stop spending our limited tax dollars on a project that doesn’t solve a problem and would adversely affect many of our neighborhoods.”

Duarte Implements Changes in Procedures for Reporting and Removal of Graffiti The annual graffiti removal contract for the city of Duarte for fiscal year 2012-2013 was reduced from $48,000 to $25,000. Graffiti removal service is now provided on an as needed basis rather than the previous process where the contracted graffiti removal service provided regular patrols to identify and remove graffiti. Instead of seven days a week and after-hour service, graffiti removal is now conducted Monday through

Friday during regular business hours. To streamline graffiti removal service, the public can now report graffiti via e-mail at reportgraffiti@ accessduarte.com, by telephone to Field Services at (626) 357-7931, Public Safety at (626) 357-7938, or online at www.accessduarte. com under Public Safety - Graffiti. Include the specific address or location of the graffiti, a description of the graffiti, and the name and phone number of the

Woody Guthrie Centennial Programs at Allendale Branch Libray

Programs are Free of Charge and Open to the Public

person making the request. Duarte Field Services processes requests for graffiti removal only on public property, including traffic signs, bus and park benches, and City buildings. The Public Safety office will continue to address graffiti removal on private property. It remains the responsibility of the private property owner to remove graffiti from their property. To report graffiti within the Los Angeles County jurisdiction, call (800) 675-4357.

sure that our public retirement system is sustainable for the long term. These reforms require sacrifice from public employees and represent a significant step forward,” said Governor Brown. “If the legislature approves these reforms, public retirement benefits will be lower than when I took office in 1975,” said Governor Brown. “Additional changes would require a vote of the people,” he added. The pension reform agreement includes substantial benefit rollbacks for public employees. It requires all current state employees and all new public employees to pay for at least 50 percent of their pensions and establishes this as the norm for all public workers in California. Importantly, these new reforms eliminate state-imposed barriers that have prevented local governments from increasing employee contributions. Further, it bans abusive practices used to enhance pension payouts. “No more spiking, no more air time, no more pensions earned by convicted felons,” said Governor Brown. “We’re cleaning up a big mess and the agreement reached with Legislative leaders today is historic in its far reaching implications.” Public Employee Pension Reform Act of 2012 Caps Pensionable Salaries Caps pensionable salaries at the Social Security contribution and wage base of $110,100 (or 120 percent of that amount for employees not covered by Social

Security). Establishes Equal Sharing of Pension Costs as the Standard California state employees are leading the way and are paying for at least 50 percent of normal costs of their pension benefits. Requires new employees to contribute at least half of normal costs, and sets a similar target for current employees, subject to bargaining. Eliminates current restrictions that impede local employers from having their employees help pay for pension liabilities. Permits employers to develop plans that are lower cost and lower risk if certified by the system’s actuary and approved by the legislature. Provides additional authority to local employers to require employees to pay for a greater share of pension costs through impasse proceedings if they are unsuccessful in achieving the goal of 50-50 cost sharing in 5 years. Directs state savings from cost sharing toward additional payments to reduce the state’s unfunded liability. Unilaterally Rolls Back Retirement Ages and Formulas Increases retirement ages by two years or more for all new public employees. Rolls back the unsustainable retirement benefit increases granted in 1999 and reduces the benefits below the levels in effect for decades. Eliminates all 3 percent formulas going forward. For local miscellaneous

employees: 2.5 percent at 55 changes to 2 percent at 62; with a maximum of 2.5 percent at 67. For local fire and police employees: 3 percent at 50 changes to 2.7 percent at 57. Establishes consistent formulas for all new employees going forward. Ends Abuses Requires three-year final compensation to stop spiking for all new employees. Calculates benefits based on regular, recurring pay to stop spiking for all new employees. Limits post-retirement employment for all employees. Felons will forfeit pension benefits. Prohibits retroactive pension increases for all employees. Prohibits pension holidays for all employees and employers. Prohibits purchases of service credit for all employees.

The Allendale Branch Library celebrates the life, music, and legacy of the iconic folk singer Woody Guthrie (1912-1967) during the 100th anniversary of his birth. Two programs will examine the widespread cultural impact of a troubadour whose songs of social protest drew upon the Dust Bowl culture, gave a voice to the disenfranchised, and are as relevant today as when they were written some 70 years ago. Saturday, September 15, 2:00 p.m. ~ Folk singer, guitarist, and political activist Ross Altman will perform a selection of Woody Guthrie’s songs and Peter Dreier, who teaches politics and chairs the Urban & Environmental Policy Department at Occidental College, will discuss how Guthrie’s experiences in Southern California during the Depression inspired his radical views about social and political conditions. Dreier will also sign copies of his recently published book, The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century: A Social Justice Hall of Fame, which includes Woody Guthrie among the 100 artists, activists, thinkers, organizers, writers, and politicians profiled.

State Hopes to Keep Jobs in California with Training Funds The State of California’s Employment Training Panel (ETP) approved 16 contracts, for approximately $7.4M in job training funds last week. Additionally, since the last Panel meeting on June 22, Panel Chair, Barry Broad and Executive Director, Brian McMahon have approved more than $1.8 to help fund training for 32 small business and small-scope projects under $100,000. The majority of training proposals heard today represent priority industries as defined in ETP’s Strategic Plan, including Clean/ Green Technology and Construction. As resource conservation and energy efficiency goals shape the way California does business, recent legislation and market demand have resulted in industries that are continuously evolving to meet the needs of a cleaner, greener state. This shift can clearly be seen in the construction industry where administrative policy, along with changes in building codes, have resulted in an increase in demand for specialized

green building skills for workers at all levels of the building trades. In order to meet the demand for jobs in commercial and industrial construction, public infrastructure projects, and “green” construction, the California Labor Federation, AFL-CIO (CalFED) has designed a statewide “Building Green Skills” training program, which incorporates ancillary trade-specific, green skills training designed to upgrade the skills of workers in various construction trades. Coordinated by the CalFED Workforce and Economic Development program, the ”Building Green Skills” training program will support Joint Apprenticeship Training Committees (JATC) to deliver training to workers in urban areas throughout the state. According to CalFED, the focus on apprenticeship will help the California construction industry recover from the recent economic downturn which resulted in the loss of approximately 20 percent of the skilled construction workforce. Through its contract

with ETP, CalFED has committed to train over 300 California construction trade workers, from apprentice to journey level, many of whom are employed by small businesses throughout the state. This project is funded under ETP’s Apprenticeship Training Pilot Program, which was implemented in March of this year. In accordance with ETP’s Apprenticeship Program, all funding will be through Multiple Employer Contracts, and each JATC or other program sponsor must be registered with the California Department of Industrial Relations, Division of Apprenticeship Standards. The Program is focused on trainees who have advanced to Year 2+ in the apprenticeship program. Under the Apprenticeship Pilot Program, ETP will fund up to 144 hours of RSI. ETP is a business and labor supported state agency that assists employers in strengthening their competitive edge in the economy by providing funds to partially off-set the costs of necessary job skills training.

California’s ETP is a performance-based program, providing funds for trainees who successfully complete training and are retained in good-paying jobs at a required minimum wage, for at least 90 days. -2The program, funded by the Employment Training Tax paid by California employers, helps businesses threatened by out-of-state and international competition. The Panel also serves employers under its Special Employment Training Program and funds projects designed to improve skills and employment security of frontline workers in projects that do not meet standard employer/ trainee eligibility requirements.

Portantino’s Bill Restricting Open Carry of Long Guns Passes Following months of negotiations, Assemblymember Anthony Portantino’s landmark legislation banning the “open carry” of unloaded rifles and shotguns in cities, has been approved by the Legislature and now heads to the Governor for signature. “I am very pleased that my fellow legislators recognized the importance of this bill to enhance public safety,” said Assemblymember Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge). “This law will safeguard families confronted by rifle-toting gun enthusiasts and will shield law enforcement personnel from tense situations where they don’t know if the rifle is loaded or unloaded. The California Police Chiefs and other law enforcement groups have made this legislation a top priority this year, and I am hopeful Governor Brown will sign it.” AB 1527 makes it a crime to openly carry unloaded rifles and shotguns in any public place or public street in incorporated cities in California. The bill does not affect rural areas or unloaded long

guns inside a vehicle. As in last year’s bill banning the open carry of handguns (AB 144), this measure contains specific exemptions for law enforcement personnel as well as licensed hunters and others. Violations are punishable by six months in jail and up to $1000 fine. “We crafted this bill to apply to incorporated cities where carrying rifles and shotguns down the street is not only dangerous but is intimidating,” explained Portantino. “I had hoped that the earlier measure banning open carry of handguns would solve this problem, but instead, gun enthusiasts started showing up with their rifles and shotguns. Families should be able to dine in peace or walk down the street without worrying about being caught in the crossfire.” AB 1527 is backed by the California Brady CamR paign Against GunEDUViolence, CE DP RIC RePORAC- Peace Officers E search Association of California and the California Police Chiefs Association.

Not Out of the Woods By Leslie Freiberger Whoever coined the phrase, “war is h#$&” has never tried to sell a house. The cleaning, the staging, open houses, appointments at the drop of a hat, keeping a house pristinely clean is grueling. I often feel like I’m on a freight train out of control, speeding toward the station. Or more like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz leading my family through the haunted forest. Lions and tigers and bears oh my. Until finally we heard those words that would save us from this plight, “you have an offer on your house.” But I soon learned, escrow is like purgatory, limbo. Not quite sold and not quite off the market either. The negations begin. We agree on the price. Just one more hurdle… the inspection. I wasn’t worried, as we have kept our house in great condition. And yet… an inspection by definition means looking in every nook and cranny with white gloves on, I wasn’t prepared for that level of clean. And so I embarked upon a major assault on my house using an arsenal of cleaning products. I had to make sure nothing could spoil this inspection. Right up until the last minute I scrubbed. You

could perform a surgery it was so clean. At 2:58 on the afternoon of the inspection I loaded up the car with our 3 kids and a Labrador and backed out the driveway. Mission accomplished. At precisely 3:00, our real estate broker arrived along with the inspector, the perspective buyer, and their broker. My husband Benjie stayed behind to answer any questions. At 3:02 I arrived at Bean Town for lunch. Just then my cell phone rang. “Houston, we have a problem.” Benjie said. “What?” What could possibly go wrong in 5 minutes? “Well, I’m looking out our kitchen window watching a BEAR climbing up the pomegranate tree!” “Not today! Did the buyers see him?” “Not yet. But it’s hard to hide an 800-pound bear. Besides its part of the city’s charm.” “I don’t believe a 800 pound carnivore is going to be considered charming to a man with small children.” “Technically a bear is an herbivore. They don’t eat people, just plants.” “Still, even though they’re from the Emerald

City, I don’t think this is exactly the wild life they are used to. Where are they now?” “I don’t know but I haven’t heard any screams. The bear is now in the garage. And the police are here.” “Great, more attention. Can they shoo him up the street? They’re not going to shoot him are they? Right there in my perfectly manicured front yard with freshly planted impatience!” “No. Don’t be silly, they’re not going to shoot the bear.” And he hung up. True what could be sillier than a bear climbing a pomegranate tree? What else could happen? Flying monkeys? I waited by my phone forever, pounding down one ginger tea after another. Thinking the worst. I hope the bear didn’t poop in the garage. I overheard someone say, “Heard the bear is in the canyon.” “Charming.” Truly it is part of our charm. Soon, Benjie pulled up and smiled, “start packing, we’re moving!” There’s no place like… a new home.

Medical Offices to be Built Adjacent to Methodist Hospital Ground Breaking Slated for 2013 Developer, Dick Hale announced the creation of a new four story 72,000 square foot, state of the art medical office building adjacent to the recently expanded Methodist Hospital in Arcadia. The project is a joint venture between The Hale’s and The Stronach Group, owner of Santa Anita Race Track. “I am very pleased, and quite enthusiastic to announce this project with my new partner,” said Dick Hale, CEO of the Hale Corporation. “With the recent multi-million dollar expansion of our local hospital, the need for additional facilities for doctors and other health care professionals is clear and the timing is right. Methodist Hospital has re-

cently been accredited as a stroke center and has attracted many notable physicians to its staff. “Dan Ausman, President and CEO of Methodist stated the hospital is excited to see the addition of high quality medical space adjacent to the hospital campus. This addition will enable the hospital to continue attracting physicians to the campus enabling continued growth of the hospital,” added Hale. This new medical office building is scheduled to break ground in early 2013, with space available for tenants as early as 2014. The project is expected to create the need for several hundred well-paying construction jobs for the area

as well as the permanent positions the building will generate. Early leasing has the building at 35 percent occupied without going to the marketplace. Mr. Hale stated that he offers physician tenants opportunity within the building. The Hale Corporation has significant history and experience in this field, with many medical buildings in its portfolio. In 2010 the organization developed a building on its Santa Clara and Fifth Avenue site to bring Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to the Arcadia community. Information on the project can be obtained by calling (626) 358-4523.

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. 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.

AB 2162-Reporting of Outside Income for Public Officials Assemblymember Anthony Portantino’s (D-La Cañada Flintridge) proposal to update and modernize financial reporting for politicians and public officials passed the Senate today 37 to 0. AB 2162 now goes to the Governor for signature. Each year, politicians and public officials must file what is known as a Form 700 – Statement of Economic Interest. It gives the public and watchdog groups a way to keep tabs on the outside financial interests of officeholders and other officials to ensure that they avoid conflicts of interest. “These forms haven’t been updated in more than 35 years and are way out-

of-date. It’s time to make sure the public, good government advocates and the media know where there are potential conflicts,” commented Portantino. “As it stands now, the broad financial ranges on the form make it impossible to have an accurate picture of what an officeholder’s financial obligations are. I want to change that and bring more transparency to this important issue.” Portantino’s AB 2162 adjusts the dollar ranges for investments and income used by some 200,000 public officials when they file the Form 700. Currently there are only 4 ranges for investments, property and

income. This bill would revise the dollar amounts associated with these ranges to 8 levels for investments and real estate and 10 levels for income ranges. The Political Reform Act of 1974 requires persons holding public offices to file disclosures of investments, real property interests, and income within specified periods of assuming or leaving office, and annually while holding the office. The act requires the disclosures to include a statement indicating, within a specified value range, the fair market value of investments or interests in real property and the aggregate value of income received from a source.

Duarte Passes Resolution to Continue to Comply with Brown Act Despite the State's decision to suspend key provisions of the Ralph M. Brown Act, California's long standing open meeting law, the City of Duarte will continue to comply to assure continued transparency in the conduct of the meetings of the City Council and all City Commissions and committees to which the Brown Act applies. "The City of Duarte is committed to open government and will continue to comply with the Brown Act, said Mayor, John Fasana. Enacted in 1953, the Brown Act, guarantees the public's right to attend and participate in meetings of legislative bodies. On June 27, 2012, as

part of the State Budget Act, five provisions of the Brown Act were suspended to avoid having to reimburse local agencies for the state mandate. Suspended for fiscal years 2012-2013, 20132014 and 2014-2015, were the requirements to: Prepare and post at least 72 hours in advance of a meeting an agenda that contains a brief description of each item of business to be transacted or discussed at the meeting. Include on the agenda a brief general description of all items to be discussed in closed session. Disclosure of each item to be discussed in closed session in an open meeting prior to any closed session.

Report in open session prior to adjournment of the actions and votes taken in closed session regarding certain subject matters. Provide copies to the public of certain closed session documents. In a resolution adopted unanimously by the Duarte City Council on August 14, the Council reaffirmed its commitment to providing continued transparency when conducting its business, in adherence with the City's mission statement: "With integrity and transparency, the City of Duarte provides exemplary public services in a caring and fiscally responsible manner with a commitment to our community's future."

Cal Phil Finale Continued from page 1

home, the Santa Anita Race Track. However it was the music of the film Amistad and the reading of a poem “Dry Your Tears, Africa” that , without doubt, made the final evening unfortegable. The artist who read the poem‘Dry Your Tears – Africa’, Sarah Culberson, is an American woman of Mende ancestry from Sierra Leone on her father's side. She is the biological daughter of one of Sierra Leone's chiefdoms. Culberson was adopted one year after her birth by a West Virginia couple and was raised in the United States with little knowledge of her West African ancestry. However, in 2004, Culberson hired a private investigator to track down her roots, and discovered that her uncle was, in fact, a Paramount Chief, and by birthright, Culberson is a now officially a Princess. Her story garnered international attention and was the focus of numerous stories in print( including Beacon Media) and on national television news shows. Culberson also has co-authored a book with Tracy Trivas entitled ‘A Princess Found’ which is her extraordinary story. The book is available at Amazon. com and Barnes and Noble Booksellers. Since then, Culberson has established the Kposowa Foundation to alleviate the suffering endured by her people particularly in Sierra Leone. The Kposowa Foundation’s purpose is to raise funds and rebuild a boarding school, provide clean drinking water, provide economically sustainable opportunities, and improve the overall quality of life for the people of Sierra Leone.

With that in mind, Maestro Victor Vener’s decision to invite Sarah (early in the inauguaral season at the race track) to read the insightful “ Dry Your Tears – Africa” was quite literally, a stroke of genius and blended perfectly with the orchestra and chorus. With a record setting 5000 guests on the infield, one could almost hear a pin drop as the audience listened intently to the passion in Culberson’s commanding recitation of the 1967 poem. “Bee ya ma yee ah, Dry your tears, Bee len geisia bee gammah. Your children are with you, Bee ya ma yee ah, Dry your tears, Bee len geisia tee yamanga. Your children have returned, Mu ya mah mu yeh, We have returned home, Mu ya mah mu yeh, We have returned home, Mu ya mah mu yeh, Afrika. We have returned home, Africa” Culberson read parts of the poem in Mende and then the English translation of the powerful struggle for freedom and the joy of going home as it was first written by Bernard Dadie in ‘67. One of the most effective features of the film Amistad, director Steven Spielberg’s epic reenactment of an 1839 shipboard slave rebellion, was its musical score, composed by John Williams. In addition to the instrumental background music typical of film soundtracks, Williams fleshed out the action with various kinds of music appropriate to the film’s time and place—African drum rhythms, American religious music, and a song in the Mende language of modernday Sierra Leone, listed in the film’s credits as “Dry Your Tears, Afrika!” The

poem’s original language was not Mende or English, but actually French, curiosly enough. Beacon Media spoke with Culberson on Monday follwing her two performances over the weekend. Culberson said “It was an honor to have the opportunity to work with California Philharmonic and Maestro Victor Vener with such a profound poem.” It was an incredible and spectaculacular opportunity,” she added. Culberson admitted that she was “ choked – up,” at times when she first practiced reading the poem and the poem’s magnificent depiction of coming home was nothing short of awe-inspiring for the audience. Hundreds stood up to applaud Culberson as Maestro Victor Vener looked on and thanked the princess for her talent and time. Amistad is a 1997 historical drama film directed by Steven Spielberg based on the true story of an uprising in 1839 by newly captured African slaves that took place aboard the ship La Amistad off the coast of Cuba, the subsequent voyage to the Northeastern United States, and the legal battle that followed their capture by a United States revenue cutter. It shows how, even though the case was won at the federal district court level, it was appealed by President Martin Van Buren to the Supreme Court, and how former President John Quincy Adams took part in the proceedings. Cal Phil will return to Santa Anita next summer with lots of surprises and appearances by The Beach Boys.

A Look at Pasadena Police Dept.’s Use of Force Simulator Training By Terry Miller

A journalist from KPCC, Erika Aguilar, is suited up with weapons as she samples first hand what officers might face in the field. -Photo by Terry Miller

Part Two In 2011, Pasadena Police officers arrested (Felonies or Misdemeanors) 8,562 suspects. The same officers only used force 67 times to effect the arrest (.76 percent of the time). This is an astonishingly low figure statistically for a city the size of Pasadena. Last week we explored some of the dangers officers face daily in any given situtaion and discussed first hand what it was like sitting in on one of the Use of Force Sim-

ulator classses. Media representatives were invited to attend a class recently 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, powerful videos of actual encounters and the Use of Force Simulator. Officers Doug Hamblin and Anthony Russo, who led the class, and were joined

by Lt. Riddle and Chief Sanchez who gave insightful perspectives on many different situations officers may face daily, sometimes involving the use of force. Officer Russo readily admits that even though he trains regularly at the range, he doesn’t always hit his target. Most officers have perhaps a 50% hit rate, statistically speaking. In the wake of yet another shooting, this time at New York’s Empire State Building, police officers

were again faced with making split second decisions. Police Commissioner Kelly in New York said these officers followed “proper police protocol.” The police shooting near the Empire State Building last week is a testament to how quickly officers can fire off 16 rounds to take down an armed suspect. However, some bystanders were also hit in the resulting exchange of gunfire. While no bystander was seriously hurt, it is a fact that even seasoned officers with extended training sometimes miss their mark in an emergency situation. Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly reiterated Monday that officials believe that two patrolmen followed proper police protocol once Jeffrey Johnson pulled a pistol on them moments after he ambushed a former coworker -- an assessment supported by experts on police policy and training. "When you're told that someone just killed someone around the corner, and five seconds later that person identified as the shooter

points the gun at you ... it was the appropriate action to take," Kelly said. Dramatic security video of the Friday morning confrontation shows Johnson pointing the weapon at the officers, other pedestrians

scattering and the two officers firing -- one from very close range, the other while retreating. The situation in New York is sadly a relatively common occurance and police training is essential to prepare for such scenarios. Pasadena takes a proactive

approach to police training and is constantly testing and educating the rank and file. Phillip Sanchez, Pasadena Chief of Police said: “We have a well trained and experienced police force, however, as I always say, "A perfect tactical responses is like a Unicorn: Everyone knows what one looks like - no one has ever seen one..." It is a valid point Chief Sanchez makes and as a state of the art police department evolves, instruction in tactical concepts for law enforcement officers; defensive tactics; special weapons and tactics (SWAT); crisis management; firearms; tactical operations; hostage negotiations; and communications with other first responders, such as the fire department, is critical. A 1999 BJS report estimated that less than half of 1 percent of an estimated 44 million people who had face-to-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.

AUGUST 30, 2012 - SEPTEMBER 5, 2012 | 15

Duarte City Council to Move Ahead on Budget Strategy The Duarte City Council has developed a strategy to address a budget shortfall in order to ensure the City’s fiscal stability in light of the recent 4 - 1 vote by the City Council (AYES: Paras-Caracci, Finlay, Reilly, Fasana, NOES: Reyes) preventing the City from declaring a fiscal emergency. The California Constitution requires a unanimous decision in order to declare an “emergency” that would have allowed the City to place a revenue measure on the ballot in an off-election year. The November 2012 ballot in a presidential election year would have ensured a much higher turn-out by Duarte voters than typically is experienced in municipal elections. Due to the resolution’s failure, Duarte voters will not have the opportunity to choose whether to generate further revenue needed to help prevent additional cuts and to stabilize and help restore essential programs and services. The Council will hold a workshop on Sept. 11 focusing on the City's revenues and cash flow given continued State take-aways, diminishing State revenues and their impacts on the City’s total available cash. The workshop will also include five-year projections of the General Fund (revenues and expenses) and how the City could run a growing annual deficit currently estimated between $160,000 and $600,000 a year unless it is addressed. At the Duarte City Council meeting also on Sept. 11, the Council may decide the timing on previously approved “trigger cuts” currently part of the Fiscal Year 2012-13 budget which were originally set to go into effect Jan. 1 if Duarte voters turned the revenue measure down. Those include the elimination of one Special Assignment Sheriff's Deputy ($116,000 savings) and the reduction of mid-week park restroom cleaning by two days ($5,000 savings). With no revenue measure to consider, a discussion making the “trigger cuts” sooner than

later has been advanced. This action and others may be necessary to continue to keep the budget balanced and help safeguard a $5 million general fund reserve for unanticipated events and emergencies. In late October, the City Council will again conduct an in-depth review of the City finances , focusing on program and service expenses, rather than wait until the usual mid-year budget workshop in February. Together with City staff, the City Council will look at any projected deficit for the current fiscal year and have a thorough discussion of potential cuts. Since fiscal year 2008/2009, the City Council has taken a number of steps to reduce costs including General Fund program and service cuts totaling approximately $2 million, and deferral of $1.5 million in capital projects. The City renegotiated labor agreements with the employee bargaining unit resulting in savings in both the short and long term through lowering of pension costs, retirement benefits, medical insurance, and the implementation of a furlough program. The historically lean City staff has been reduced by 12 positions, approximately 20% over the past four years. Full time/three quarter time staffing for Duarte, population 25,000, is 41.25 for 2012/2013. Additionally, as a result of the State's elimination of redevelopment agencies, the progress the City had made in cutting expenditures to balance the City's budget is now insufficient. Over its 38-year history, the Redevelopment Agency helped transform Duarte by eliminating blight, encouraging economic growth, funding quality affordable housing, and building a solid commercial and retail tax base. The Redevelopment Agency also provided funding for positions and programs related to redevelopment through a reimbursement to the City's General Fund. By fiscal year 2011/2012, the amount of that reimbursement had reached $1 million annual-

ly. In the last four years, the State has forced the City to turn over $3.2 million in Redevelopment Agency funds, and based on the AB 1484 clean-up legislation to the redevelopment agency dissolution laws, there is a high probability that the State will take another $7.5 million, monies that the Redevelopment Agency repaid to the City in February 2011 for loans to the Agency over the past three decades. Duarte is committed to continuing its proactive approach to keep the City budget in balance against the challenges of the ongoing economic recession, the State of California’s consistent raiding of local funds, and the elimination of redevelopment agencies. Duarte continues to work with other cities to protect local revenues from State raids.

Hot Rod Show Featuring 300 Plus Cars Slated for Sept. 8 in Monrovia

-Photo by Terry Miller

Street Rod Forever, a local car enthusiast car club holds a Hod Rod Car Show (for Pre ’74 vehicles) each September on Myrtle in Monrovia. Each and every year the men who founded the club donate a portion of their proceeds to local charities. This year the event falls on Saturday September 8 with fun for the while family. Street Rods are typically American cars with

large engines modified for linear speed. The origin of the term "hot rod" is unclear. One explanation is that the term is a contraction of "hot roadster," meaning a roadster that was modified for speed. Another possible origin includes modifications to or replacement of the camshaft(s), sometimes known as a "stick" or "rod". A camshaft designed to produce more power is sometimes called a "hot stick" or

a "hot rod". Roadsters were the cars of choice because they were light. The term became commonplace in the 1930s or 1940s as the name of a car that had been "hopped up" by modifying the engine in various ways to achieve higher performance. The term can also apply to other items that are "souped up" for a particular purpose, such as "hot-rodded amplifier".

Each year, the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) honors those companies whose programs and people are recognized as the "Best of the Best.” It's a great honor to be chosen among all competitors in even a single category. This year, in addition to our parent company, Brookdale Senior Living®, winning one of these accolades, The Gables was also recognized for a very special associate.

Believing you’re the best is one thing.

Being recognized as “Best of the Best” is special. LEADERSHIP MATTERS

We are proud to congratulate Gabriel Valencia, Director of Dining Services at The Gables Monrovia, for winning the 2012 Hero of the Year Award from ALFA.

Federal Housing Finance Agency Announces New Short Sale Guidelines for Home Buyers and Sellers The Arcadia Association of Realtors® (A.A.R.) has long advocated for a streamlined, standardized short sale process for homes that are currently worth less than what they were purchased for. Positive new changes announced this week by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) call for the alignment of guidelines for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac short sales and will allow lenders and servicers to quickly and more easily qualify borrowers for a short sale. Some specific changes that become effective Nov. 1, 2012 include: Eliminates current Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac short sale programs and creates a single standard short sale process for both entities (Fannie and Freddie HAFA programs will expire at the end of the year). Enables servicers to quickly and eas-

ily qualify certain borrowers who are current on their mortgages for short sales without waiting for an approval from Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac Offers special treatment for military personnel with Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders. Standardizes and clarifies foreclosure suspensions on a property with an approved short sale. May pay borrowers up to $3,000 in relocation assistance. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will offer up to $6,000 to subordinate lien holders to expedite a short sale. Additionally, FHFA clarified that a borrower experiencing a hardship must wait at least two years before becoming eligible for a Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac loan. These changes follow FHFA’s announcement in June that established strict

timelines for servicers to respond to short sales within 30 days of receipt of a short sale offer, provide weekly status updates to the borrower, and communicate a final decision to the borrower within 60 days of receipt of the offer. The A.A.R. fully expects these positive changes to help the thousands of local homeowners sell their short sale homes more quickly and will allow new homebuyers more easily qualify for a home purchase. Representing local Realtors® in the San Gabriel Valley for 88 years, the Arcadia Association Of Realtors® (www.TheAAR.com) is one of the oldest trade organizations in CA. The AAR is dedicated to the advancement of professionalism in real estate and is an advocate for private property rights. A.A.R. is headquartered in Arcadia.

of the Most Blessed Sacrament (affectionatley known as Mother Luisita) the sisterhood’s founder, formed the Carmelite Sisterhood in Mexico. Following the religious persecution that occurred during the Mexican revolution, Mother Luisita and two companions entered the United Sates as religious refugees in 1927 to safely share their spiritual ideals. Sister Timothy Marie, a member of the Carmelite Sisterhood says “Mother Luisita and her two companions brought with them, as religious refugees in 1927, a legacy that it is our God-given mission, a mission of the heart, a mission of loving service to the poor, the sick, the needy and the uneducated.” Dedicated to that legacy, the Carmelite Sisterhood has sponsored several institutions in the United States including schools for children in Arizona and Florida and many healthcare institutions in Southern California. Believing that the elderly need access to healthcare and committed to providing it, the Carmelite Sisterhood primarily focuses on medical services for seniors and has sponsored three facilities in Los Angeles that provide healthcare to elderly individuals:

Avila Gardens, located in the San Gabriel Valley, is an independent living facility that offers care to active individuals over the age of 55; Marycrest Manor is a nursing facility that offers 24-hour care to seniors in need of short-term or longterm rehabilitation, and dating back to 1930, the sisterhood’s oldest facility, Santa Teresita, is located in Duarte, and provides independent living, assisted living, nursing and hospice services. Reflecting on the Carmelite Sisterhood and healthcare for seniors, Sister Timothy Marie says “we fervently believe that the latter years are meant to be lived out in joy, vibrancy, and security. We need to give back to those who came before us; we want to upgrade the options offered to them in their senior years.” Santa Teresita: a Neighborhood of Care is the sisterhood’s latest accomplishment in senior healthcare. On September 8, the Carmelite Sisterhood will proudly debut the grand opening of the Rose Gardens’ First Cottage at Santa Teresita’s Neighborhood of Care. Santa Teresita originally started out as a tuberculosis sanatorium for young women and then expanded to a hospital in

1955. Over the years, various medical services have been offered at Santa Teresita, but in 2004, the focus of care shifted to the elderly. The Rose Gardens at Santa Teresita will offer long-term or short-term housing, care, and rehabilitation for seniors. Sister Timothy Marie says “we want to address the many dimensions of aging in a proactive, caring atmosphere in a setting conducive to living life to the fullest. Santa Teresita’s Neighborhood of Care is that setting.” The Rose Gardens’ master plan includes seven to nine cottages that will each house ten to thirteen people, a gerontology learning center, a senior university and a town center for activities. Nursing and pastoral internships will also be offered at Santa Teresita’s Neighborhood of Care. Festivities for the Rose Gardens’ grand opening will commence at 11:00a.m. and will include an official blessing, food, entertainment and open tours. The Carmelite Sisterhood welcomes the public to attend the grand opening as they continue to provide care for important members of our society. Santa Teresita’s Neighborhood of Care is located at 819 Buena Vista Street in Duarte.

Housing Shortage Sends California Pending Home Sales Lower in July A continued shortage of available homes on the market impeded California pending home sales in July, but pending sales were still higher from the previous year for the 15th straight month, Arcadia Asociation Of Realtors® (A.A.R.) reported today. Pending home sales data: C.A.R.’s Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI)* fell 4.2 percent from a revised 121.2 in June to 116.1 in July, based on signed contracts. Pending sales were up 2.8 percent from the 113.0 index recorded in July 2011. July marked the 15th straight month that pending sales were higher than the previous year, but July’s yearover-year increase was the smallest in the past year. Pending home sales are forward-looking indicators of future home sales activity, providing information on the future direction of the market. “We continue to see a strong demand for housing, but the California market is being hindered

by a lack of inventory and multiple offers on what little inventory that is available,” said 2012 A.A.R. President Ryan Asao. “The shortage of inventory has had the most dramatic effect in the REO market, where the available inventory stands at a 1.5-month supply and the share of REO sales dropping 35 percent over the past year.” Distressed housing market data: The share of equity sales – or non-distressed property sales – compared with total sales continued to expand in July. The share of equity sales increased to 59.5 percent in July, up from 58 percent in June. Equity sales made up 52.4 percent of all sales in July 2011. The share of REO sales statewide shrank further, while the share of short sales increased. The combined share of all distressed property sales fell to 40.5 percent in July, down from 42 percent in June and down from 47.6 percent in July 2011.

The share of short sales increased in July to 22.6 percent, up from 21.4 percent in June and from 18.8 percent a year ago. Of the distressed properties, the share of REO sales dwindled in July to 17.4 percent, down from 20.2 percent in June and 28.6 percent in July 2011. The available supply of REOs for sale remained constricted in July, with the Unsold Inventory Index standing at a 1.5-month supply in July 2012, essentially unchanged from 1.4 months in June. The July Unsold Inventory Index for equity sales stood at 3.8 months and was 4.2 months for short sales.

of WNV infected dead birds. A map showing the area of concern can be viewed at www.sgvmosquito.org. To date, a total of 9 WNV infected birds have been collected within the District’s service area from the cities of Alhambra (1); Claremont (1); Industry (1); Monrovia (1); San Dimas (1); San Gabriel (2); Sierra Madre (2). Residents should take immediate precautions against mosquito bites by using repellents if outdoors between dusk and dawn and ensuring windows and doors are properly screened to keep mosquitoes outside. Underground water conveyance pipes provide ideal conditions for both resting mosquitoes and developing larvae. During the summer months, neighborhood runoff travels via gutters into underground pipes and pools behind leaf litter and debris that collects there. Preventing runoff from properties will help minimize underground mosquito reproduction. West Nile virus activity is

at record levels in the United States this year. In California, 34 people have been diagnosed with WNV infection compared to just 19 at the same time last year. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health reports 5 cases of WNV in County residents. Warmer temperatures provide ideal conditions for WNV amplification and transmission. Mosquitoes pick up WNV from infected birds and spread it to other birds when they bite again. People can also get WNV if bitten by infected mosquitoes. It is critical that residents survey their property and remove all standing water to prevent mosquito reproduction. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water sources such as neglected pools, buckets, misc. containers, puddles, and ponds. Eggs can hatch and mature to biting adults in 5-7 days. Since its introduction in 2003, there have been 3,180 reported infections and 111 deaths from WNV in Califor-

nia. West Nile virus is present and a risk to public health every year. Throughout the summer, basic protective measures should be followed: - AVOID Over-watering, and prevent litter, leaves and debris from entering the gutters and streets - DRAIN: Check properties weekly and remove all sources of standing water. Report ‘green’ inoperable pools or other sources of standing water to the District - DAWN AND DUSK: Wear effective repellents if outdoors when mosquitoes are present (between dusk and dawn) - DEFEND: Ensure doors and windows are properly screened The District encourages the public to help identify WNV “hot spots” by reporting dead birds to the WNV Hotline at (877) WNV-BIRD (877-968-2473) or online at www.westnile.ca.gov. We also urge our residents to call the District to report any mosquito activity.

Life Remembered Arcadia PD

In Memory of Helen B. Walton Helen Walton, 97, died peacefully with family by her side on August 20, 2012 at Royal Oaks Manor in Bradbury, California. She was the devoted wife of The Honorable Frank J. Walton, and the loving mother of five children and six grandchildren. Lieutenant Helen B. (Olseske) Walton joined the U.S. Navy Nurse Corps the day after Pearl Harbor was attacked and was one of 100 U.S. nurses sent to England for the D-Day invasion. After the war, she married Frank J. Walton, a Marine, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Coronado in 1945. Frank and Helen were married for 45 years. Frank worked as a steel industry executive, ran for Congress, served as the Secretary of Business and Transportation under thenGovernor Reagan and was the President of the Heritage Foundation in Washington,

D.C. in the mid-1970’s. He later became an ordained deacon in the same church where they were married. Frank passed away in February 1991. The Walton family lived in Arcadia from 1952-1971

before moving to Sacramento, and Washington, D.C. In 1977, they moved to Coronado, and Helen continued to live there until 2002 before moving to Royal Oaks Manor.

Helen is survived by her youngest brother, Chester Owens, of Lebanon, PA; her five children, Carol Bassett , Michael Walton, Joshua Walton, Mark Walton, and Maribeth McGinley; and her six grandchildren, David Bassett, Elizabeth Bassett, Luke Walton, Olivia Walton, Shayne Walton, and Isabelle Walton. A private burial with family will be held at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in Point Loma on September 3rd to honor her military service for the duration of World War II. All are welcome to attend a Memorial Mass to celebrate Helen’s life at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Coronado on Tuesday, September 4th, at 11:00 AM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in the name of Helen B. Walton to the Wounded Warriors Project.

Portantino’s Tattoo Removal Bill Passes Legislature Assemblymember Anthony Portantino’s AB 1956 which provides a first step in breaking the bonds of prostitution and helping young victims begin new, meaningful lives, has been approved in the state Legislature. The bill moved out of Assembly concurrence late Monday on a vote of 76 to 0 and now goes to the Governor for signature. Throughout the legislative process, AB 1956 has received overwhelming support across party lines. “It has become a disturbing trend for young women to be tattooed for the purpos-

es of prostitution and human trafficking. These individuals are forced to carry around these tattoos or “brands” on their body, as a constant reminder of their exploitation and abuse,” explained Assemblymember Portantino. “Not only does this practice leave a permanent physical mark, but the psychological effect of being marked as property is long-lasting. Assisting these victims with tattoo removal will help them gain employment and break the psychological effect of the tattoo, further prompting them to leave the life of

exploitation behind,” concluded Portantino. Current free tattoo removal programs are limited to former members of gangs. This bill will expand the program to allow for young prostitutes between the ages of 14 and 24 to take part in the tattoo removal programs. The existing program is federally funded, so no state funds will be used to support this measure. There are safeguards in the bill to make sure the appropriate tattoos are removed and the federal program is enacted with accountability in California.

Monrovia PD

Warrant / Parolee at Large - Suspect Arrested August 16 at 7:20 a.m., po-

lice were requested to the 800 block of West Chestnut regarding a male transient sleeping on a bench on a business property near their front lobby. Officers arrived and recognized the subject from prior contacts. Computer checks revealed he had an outstanding warrant out of Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and a no-bail parolee-at-large warrant. He was arrested and taken into custody. Disturbed Subject / Mental Evaluation August 16 at 16:27 p.m., police dispatch received a call reporting a male subject walking around holding a knife in the 300 block of West Duarte. After making the initial report the caller hung up the phone. Officers responded and located the subject in a parking area.

One of the officers eventually talked the subject into dropping the knife. The subject was taken into custody. A check of the subject’s cell phone revealed the phone number was the same as the reporting party. It appears the subject was the one who made the initial report on himself. The subject was taken to a hospital, where he was placed on a 72-hour hold for mental evaluation. Traffic Collision - Vehicle vs. Pedestrian August 17 at 8:49 p.m., a

73-year-old female was walking east on Royal Oaks and began to cross Mountain in the pedestrian walkway.

He was able to get a picture on his cell phone of the driver, suspects, the vehicle, and the license plate. He attempted to follow the suspects, but lost them. He then went home and called police. Police responded and checked the area. An area search was made and two of the suspects were eventually located. The vehicle license plate was found to belong to the stolen Acura from earlier

that morning. The pictures taken by the reporting party positively identified the driver of the stolen vehicle. The second suspect was found to have an outstanding warrant. Both suspects were arrested and taken into custody. In the early morning hours of the next day, officers located the third outstanding suspect sleeping in an alley. He had shaved his head in an attempt to alter his appearance. He was taken into custody with incident. August 19 at 8:38 p.m., an officer on patrol was driving through an alley in the 200 block of West Colorado and located the stolen green Acura parked in a carport stall of an apartment complex. The vehicle was recovered.

The ND reflects the independent judgment of the City as a lead agency per CEQA guidelines. The project site is not on a list compiled pursuant to Government Code section 65962.5. The proposed project is not considered a project of statewide, regional or area-wide significance and would not affect highways or other facilities under the jurisdiction of the State of California Department of Transportation.

The Negative Declaration and Initial Study were distributed for a 20-day public review and comment period from August 1, 2012 to August 20, 2012. Written comments should be received before September 11,2012. Comments should be sent to: Planning Division, 8838 East Valley Boulevard, Rosemead, CA 91770, Attention: Lily Trinh, Assistant Planner.

If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate

the existence, priority and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.
