By Bill Peters The City of Arcadia operates just like any homeowner. They look around the place, realize that the driveway really needs replacement, the air conditioner is not only old, but not in realizing today’s energy efficient levels, the shrubs have died of both old age and a beetle attack. The roof still looks good, but repainting and re-carpeting wouldn’t be a bad idea. T he a na log y fa i l s, though, when you consider Federal, state and regional regulations that mean change is required on a specific schedule that says it must be done, well, now. Also, public buildings are generally open six days a week for 14 or more hours with lots of visitors which means that the physical plants just wear out more quickly than a homeowner’s. Arcadia is required to have the City Manager develop a detailed plan of its capital improvement needs every five years. Last September, Arcadia’s City Manager, Don PenContinued on Page 7

Wonders of English

Story Telling Time TheGoodLife

Dorothy's Place We had some f u n w it h pu n s la st week . This week let’s just try some complications of English that show why it can be a hard language to learn. l. The bandage was wound a round t he wound. 2. The farm was used to produce produce. 3. The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse. 4. We must polish the Polish furniture. 5. He could lead if he would get the lead out. 6. The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert. 7. Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present. 8. A bass was painted on the head of the bass. 9. When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes. 10. I did not object to the object. 11. The insurance was invalid for the invalid. 12. There was a row a mong t he oa rsmen about how to row. 13. They were too close to the door to close it. 14. The buck does funny things when the does are present. 15. A seamstress was a good sewer until she fell down into a sewer line. 16. To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow. 17. The wind was too strong to wind the sail. 18. After a number of inject ions my jaw got number. 19. Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear. 2 0. I had to subject the subject to a series of tests. 21. How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend? ***** There is no egg in eg g pla nt nor ha m i n hamburger; neither apple nor pi ne i n pi ne apple. English muff ins weren’t invented in England nor French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren’t sweet, are meat.

By Dorothy Denne Q u ic k s a nd wor k s slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn’t the plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? Doesn’t it seem crazy that you can make ammends but not one ammend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it? Is it an odd, or an end? If teachers taught, why d id n’t preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? How ca n a slim chance and a fat chance be t he sa me, wh i le a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up and down at the same time and, in which you fill in a form by filling it out, and in which an alarm goes off by going on. Why do you drive on a parkway and park on a driveway? When the stars are out they are visible, but when the lights are out they are invisible. And, while we’re at it, why doesn’t dough rhy me w it h rough or Buick with quick? English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race which, of course, is not a race at all.

One of the many joys of Grandparenting is the reading of bedtime stories, nursery rhymes, and fairy tales and of course telling my personal stories from the “Good Ole Days”. I feel a little melancholy sometimes when I see them growing up. Those wonderful days of story telling were such a precious time for the Grandchildren but even more so ... for Grandpa. It is a special adventure when you have the privilege of being with your grandchild several times a week. Since my grandson Sean’s parents have a work schedule conflict on Tuesday’s and Friday’s I have the joy of picking him up from his first grade classroom each week. We usually have a couple of hours to kill so we frequently hang out at the ice cream parlor or spend time at the local park feeding the ducks and birds. Once we get through the chitchat of reviewing his day at school, I usually begin my extensive oratory of what it was like when I was growing up. Well as they say ... “All Good Things Must Come To An End”. It was one of those special visitation days with Sean, that marked the beginning of his take over

of Grandpa’s “Oratory Time”. Just as I started reminiscing about my childhood, Sean launched into an embarrassing pantomime of one of my past story telling sessions. “Well, he said,” Back in the Good Ole Days” he began with his creakily interpretation of my voice, charactering most every story that I had told him over the past year! Yes, he continued, “I walked three miles to and from school each day in the wind, rain and an occasional snowstorm.” Then without interruption, he began acting out how exhausted he was from the walk home from school. Then he continued, “but still I had to chop wood for the stove and the fireplace before I could sit down for dinner”. As he concluded his diatribe monologue of me, he stated “by the way Grandpa ... did you know there were between 12 and 18 spokes in the average wheel of a covered wagon and that the average weight of a horseshoe is 8 ounces”! Stunned, I foolishly a sked my “W h i z K id” grandson Sean how he knew those Olden Day facts? His quick response went something like this: Well, Grandpa! ... “In the good old days as

a kid, after dinner you played marbles, Cowboys and Indians and sneaked to the barn for a smoke on a corn cob pipe. But when you started telling me those interesting stories from the past, I went on line with my computer and researched the details of all those things you did! I have shared many of the facts from your stories with my first grade class students. They hope you will visit our class one day to share one of your “tall tales” wit h t hem, from that era! Well, I’m not sure if that was a compliment or another “I told you so”, but I do know that my first grade “Soon to Be Genius” grandson, who is now reading at a 5th grade level, is very smart and kind. I am still very fortunate that he continues to share a learning session, with me, each week after school!

Memorial Day is certainly one of America’s most sacred days. It is a day set aside for reflection, appreciation and remembrance. When I think of Memorial Day, like many of us I guess, I most often think of cemeteries and monuments. Cemeteries with white headstones neatly ordered in military fashion, monuments that speak of sacrifice and struggle, of victory and defeat. I think of countless men and women through the years, who recognized their role in America’s struggle to remain free. Not only that, but men and women who recognized America’s greater role to support freedom across our globe. I think of battle weary soldiers on faraway lands and now, more recently I think of conflicts that are not so far away. I think of dedicated individuals, who knew there was a job to do, and unless they did it, it just

Action to ensure that justice prevails across our country and in our communities. Action through voting where we all participate in the very ideals that freedom and the sacrifice of our service men and women have insured. On this Memorial Day may we be truly grateful for those lives that have been laid on the altar of freedom for us, and that their sacrifice might spur us to action so that the costly gift they have given us will not be in vain. May God bless the memory of our service men and women, and may God richly bless America!

Sierra Madre Room Renovation Continued from the First Page Workforce Housing Reward Prog ram funding was recently identified by staff and approved by the City Council for use in defraying design costs on the project in the amount of $13,116. Thus, the available funding for the project stands at $933,116. T he S ier r a M a d re Community Recreation Center was constructed in 1969. Initial public discussions about renovating the facility centered on demolishing the facility and replacing it. Unfortunately the costs for a project of that magnitude were more than the City could afford at that time. Consequently, a phased approach to renovating the facility has been taken; projects have been initiated and completed

only as funding has become available. Previous remodel projects have rehabilitated the pool house, the staff offices and a portion of the Fireside Room, and added the second-story YAC. The remaining original sections of the building are showing the wear of their nearly 40 years of hard use. T he S ier r a M a d re Room project is the last phase of the renovation of the Sierra Madre Recreation Center. This portion of the Recreation Center includes the Sierra Madre Room, the un-renovated portion of the adjacent Fireside Room, the existing kitchen, and the existing (original) restrooms which serve the Fireside Room. The project does not include the second story of the building which is currently used as the Youth Activity Center.

Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs

Nearly $40 Million Needed in the Next Five Years Sometimes, You Just Can't Judge a Hotel by its Cover Continued from the First Page

By Greg Aragon From outside the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs is an unassuming, roadside motel. But don’t be fooled. Behind the inconspicuous white desert buildings is one of the grooviest, bohemian retro retreats around. I recently discovered the hotel when a friend and I checked into a unique a nd comfor t able room overlooking the main pool. Replete with macramÊ and old magazine pictures on the walls, a record player, a cozy king bed, and a long guest couch with a canvas curtain, the room is a time warp to the 1970’s. The quarters also featured free Internet, mini-refrigerator, flat screen TV, two sinks, and a large balcony overlooking the grounds.

man, prepared a 283 page report that lists each item needed for replacement or repair with an explanation of what is needed and a justification for spending the money. Oh, yes. He also had to specify where the money would come from to pay for it all. What he came up with was a total of $39,865,156, and brilliantly, located the funds. “The City Charter requires the City Manager to submit to City Council a five-year capital and equipment acquisition plan,� Penman writes in his report to the Council. He explained that the program is intended to forecast a schedule of major expenditures on such things as buildings, parks, roads, sewers, water projects and others. The report contemplates the city spending $31 million on st reet s, buildings and grounds, sewer and storm drain, and the city-owned water system, among other things: with repair to the city’s streets commanding the largest amount, $16 million. Equipment costs are anticipated to run $8.5 million for such items as office machines, computers and software, communications equipment with just under $6 million for vehicles and major parts. Penman warns in his report that the figures presented are not budgetary in nature but rather a general financial plan for capital improvement s a nd t he proposed means of financing them. Any spending for improvements are required to be brought to the City Council for budgeting and authorization for each

item. To save you the problem of going to the city website, or to the City Clerk for a copy of this report, we will list a few items that should give you an idea of what the city faces each year as machinery breaks down, roads get bumpy, and the regulatory requirements coming from Washington, or Sacramento or Los Angeles County make for a constant need to plan. • Dead Oleandar bushes on N. Baldwin Ave., were attacked by an insect. If you’ve been up that way, you see that removing these old bushes is a big deal. • Sprinkler heads need replacement in some of the median strips. And irrigation controls need upgrading. • L.A. County is requiring testing for natural metals in the groundwater as regs are now in place for the entire L A basin. • The heating and air conditioning units at the library are 11 years old, 16 years old at the Service Center and 14 years old at the Community Center. The maintenance costs on the old units whose days are really over exceeds good sense. Arcadia has been consistently blessed with dedicated staff that keeps all systems in good order day after day. It appears the five-year program has various revenue streams that will support the effort. Penman says, “These projects are, for the most part, related to the City’s infrastructure and are necessary to maintain a safe and healthy quality of life in Arcadia.â€?

Vertical Wine Bar

By Peter Dills

“Our Fish Come from the Finest Schools”

WINNER

Best Seafood Restaurant Pasadena Independent Readers’ Choice Award

WINNER Best Seafood Restaurant Pasadena Weekly Readers’ Poll

20 Straight Years

WE MESQUITE BROIL ALL OUR FISH. I am getting to be pretty astute at these Wine Bars in The San Gabriel Valley; at least I thought that I was. Just when I believed that I was approaching expert status, a friend of mine corrected me and may have demoted my self-anointed ranking in the process. We were visiting the California Wine and Cheese Shop in Monrovia, I called it a “bar,” and she reminded me, that it was a “shop” and that the focus was actually the purchasing not the tasting at the bar. Well excccuuuuuse me! Just kidding, I love my job, I learn more and more about the Hospitality Industry on a daily basis. You know, she was right about the “shop.” That brings us to The Vertical Wine /Bistro &Bar in Pasadena, using my newly discovered formula; The Vertical is a restaurant with a bar. Genius you say, oh, that may have me been mumbling. There is no shop here. My intention on said review was to start in the bar, sample a few flights and head to the dining room. I never made it to the dining room and that’s OK, as I mentioned a few weeks ago at Ruth Chris, sometimes I am perfectly content to stay in the bar. Vertical Wine Bistro has an extensive wine list and features flights of wine, which gives you an opportunity to sample and select something according to your selective tastes. Prices for the flights range from ($18) to

($40), so if you can’t decide by the third go around, your indecisiveness will find you in the hole a good penny. My first flight was at ($18) mark and was three Greek Wines. I did this sampling, mostly because I was born there and was curious to discover how the legendary Greeks crafted their vino. I thought it was interesting but I did discover that France is a safer bet for Wines. Many of you may know of The Verticals reputation for having fantastic wines and limitless selections. Oddly, I felt that the food was the true star here. That may fall on me, as I may have been a little too curious, after all, it did kill the cat. Wines tend to be an item that is more subjective, but good food usually finds a unanimous verdict. And Vertical comes through in this department, my dinner companion and I were very impressed with the Asparagus Rossito($15), and the Braised Short Ribs ($23) t hat General Manager, Manuel Mesta, said were simmered for six hours in a Zinfandel sauce, plus a Seared Ahi Tuna that rivals the best in town. Top shelf! The bread pudding a nd Molten Chocolate Cake ($8) also garnered two affirmative votes. So, my rev iew is thumbs up, the wines and service were good, but the food was very good. For you Pasadena residents, a little hint, The Vertical, adds another spe-

cial touch, show your ID or business card at the bar and receive a complimentary glass of Proseco. Incidentally, the Bar offers a wide variety of Cheeses and Charcuterie (sliced meats). At ($13) and up, I found it a little pricey compared to other local shops/ bars. However, Manuel assured me that these too were top shelf and hand selected to go with the wine list. Full Bar available , I recommend the Fio-Lolita, named after the owners daughter, it has Gin, blueberries, agave nectar with fresh squeezed lemon, a true classic cocktail.

the three previous awards won in his progression to the District level. His speech, on the recent legislation on health care, was in response to the L ion s a n nu a l S t udent Speaker contest. Over the years, this

event has sponsored some amazing high school student s t hrough schola r sh ips awa rded for excellence in writing and del iver i ng speeches. Chang is no exception to the excellence exhibited by past recipients.

Eagle Scout Vincent Chan, an Eagle Scout from San Marino Troop 351, shared his experiences as a Tiger Cub up the path to the rank of Eagle. Capping the brunch was an exhilarating talk presented by radio personality Mark Wallengren. Wallengren teamed up with Kim Amidon in 1986 to start the country’s first equally billed male/female morning radio show. Their style set a trend that was to be followed by stations all over the country.

Since Wallengren’s arrival, KOST 103.5 FM has been nominated for countless awards and has won eight Billboard, four Gavin and two Marconi awards. In addition, he has been named Personality of the Year by Billboard Magazine and was honored on their 20th anniversary in 2006 with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Wallengren loves the Los Angeles community and is always donating his time, name and talent to worthwhile causes through-

out the city, and as a youth, was an active Boy Scout. In 2008, Kristin Cruz joined Wallengren for the now Mark & Kristin Show, which continues to be one of the most listened to morning radio programs in Los Angeles.

Huntington Hospital’s Youth Volunteers “Walk in the Shoes of Older Adults” High school students who volunteer at Huntington Hospital had an opportunity to “become senior citizens” this week, thanks to Trading Ages, an interactive senior sensitivity training program sponsored by SCAN Health Plan. The award-winning Trading Ages program is a workshop that provides participants the opportunity to literally “walk in the shoes of a senior” through a series of hands-on exercises and sensory perception education. “This workshop really opened their eyes to what people experience as they age and gradually lose the ability to be fully independent,” said Mary Jayne Johnstone, student volunteer supervisor at Huntington Hospital. “Several students mentioned that their grandparents and even some of their parents are experiencing difficulty with their vision and hearing. After the program they felt they had a better understanding of why their family members sometimes seem frustrated or agitated.” To mimic the difficulties experienced with arthritis, for example, program participants donned heavy, clumsy gloves and were then asked to open medication bottles and handle small pills. The students also put popcorn in their shoes and were asked

Huntington Hospital volunteers Megan Anderson and Isabel Sotomayor experience the challenges of aging during SCAN Health Plan’s Trading Ages workshop. to walk around to simulate the feeling of painful joints. Some students had one arm strapped to their side to see how limiting it can be to deal with the effects of a stroke. Depriving participants of the level of hearing and sight that most people enjoy their entire lives is also a critical part of the program. The students were asked to insert ear plugs and were t hen g iven a hearing test to demonstrate how isolating hearing loss can be. They were given special glasses to experience vision loss.

“The students asked really intelligent questions and I saw a lot of ‘aha!’ moments,” said Johnstone. According to Lena Perlman, director of community outreach at SCAN, t hat’s not u ncom mon. “Participants are often surprised by how they react during the program, and many have commented on what an eye-opening experience it is.” SCAN has been offering aging sensitivity training to its employees for many years as a way to better understand the needs and mindset of its

health plan members. The program also continues to be offered to SCAN board members, physician groups and to school children to enhance their sensitivity in dealing with older adults. “Wit h ou r societ y rapidly aging, this type of education across all ages a nd indust ries is more important than ever,” said Perelman. “As a health plan focused exclusively on the needs of seniors, SCAN is in a unique position to help people understand more about the aging process.”

Top Lawry’s Execs Visit Arcadia Rotary Monrovia PD Assisted by Arcadia,

Pasadena in Burglary Suspect Search

Continued from Page 8 lowed by a large variety of seasonings made available to consumers bearing the Lawry’s name. In 1956, just prior to the Rose Bowl Game, Lawry’s played host to the two competing teams – the Oregon State Beavers and the Iowa Hawkeyes. This went on to become known as the Beef Bowl and the tradition continues to this day. According to Frank, through the years, the basic elements of Lawry’s The Prime Rib have remained virtually unchanged. “It is still a family business, with the second and third generations of Franks and Van de Kamps working side by side in the restaurants’ operation,” he said. “Modifications and improvements have been made to meet today’s demands, but the meals served remain timeless and still very much Lawry’s.” Frank joined the company in 1950 and for many years served as president a nd C E O of L aw r y’s Foods, Inc. which includes over 100 products. Under his leadership, Lawry’s

Richard N. Frank, Richard R. Frank, Arcadia Rotary Club president Imy Dulake Foods, Inc., now owned by the McCormick Company, grew from a fledgling family business into a multimillion dollar company. Franks’ son, Richard R., serves as president and CEO of Lawry’s Restaurants, Inc. and represents the third generation of the Frank family active in the management of the company.  A grandson represents the fourth generation.  “Both father and son have been active Rotarians in the Los Angeles Rotary Club and take pride in their restaurants, which are known for quality and

integrity,” said Arcadia Rotarian Eric Barter. “The Lawry’s story is quite an impressive testament to family and entrepreneurship  over several generations,” added club vice president Brad Miller. “We are very pleased that both gentlemen took time out of their busy schedules to visit us this afternoon.” T he compa ny a lso owns the Five Crowns and Lawry’s Carvery restaurants with Lawry’s The Prime Rib also located in Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas and several international locations.

About a dozen Monrovia officers and detectives descended upon a vacant building owned by the city of Monrovia on Duarte near California Friday afternoon when someone noticed the gate to the entrance had been cut open and a suspect seen on the grounds. Following investigation and after making entry to the building, no suspects were found as of 2:30pm. However, a vehicle nearby was discovered to be reported stolen. The Pasa-

dena Police air operations helicopter had to return for refueling after circling the

large industrial complex for over an hour searching for suspect(s).

Free Live Music at Westfield Santa Anita Every Sunday afternoon from 4 to 6 p.m., now through June 20, Westfield Santa Anita will feature live outdoor performances of local musical legends. “We are delighted to support local artists while celebrating the one-year anniversary of the Promenade Shops,” said Amanda Glover, director of marketing for Westfield Santa Anita. “The live performances are wonderful outing for the

whole family,” Glover added. “They are a great way to kick off the season and celebrate Father’s Day.” The performances are free and open to the public. The first concert is this Sunday, May 30 with a mix of Cuban, funk jazz and more, performed by José Espinoza’s Umbalaye Band. One of Los Angeles’ top musicians, José was a founding member of Ozomatli, helping form its unmistakable sound and cre-

ating a musical legacy that has defined Los Angeles’ diverse culture for millions around the globe.
