AHS Graduate Leads Team to World Series By Kristie Tom Sixteen seems to be the magic number for softball player Jenna Rodriguez of the University of Hawaii. W hen she wa s just 16 -years-old, Rodriguez was named Most Valuable Player for the Pacific League for the first time, and helped lead her team to a conference championship. As the lowest seed in the tournament, No. 16, UH had a slim chance of making it far in the NCAA Tuscaloosa Super Regionals, let alone making it to the NCAA Women’s College World Series.

Special Memories Dorothy's Place

By Dorothy Denne

relive the beatles! FRIDAY, JULY 9

party on the plaza fridays at 7:30 PASADENA CIVIC PLAZA super diamond

Funny how a simple little phrase from someone can trigger a memory. This morning I overheard a stranger say, “God, I miss my Grandpa.” That opened my memory box. I never knew my grandfathers. They both died before I was born so I only know of them what was told to me over the years. Though both of my grandmothers died while I was young, they did leave me a few memories. They are special. There are two in particular that stick with me about Grandma B. She belonged to the Free Methodist Church. When I went to services with her, we had to kneel on a kneeler which hurt my knees. I didn’t like that, so I tried to avoid staying over Saturday nights

with her. My cousin, Rosie June, didn’t do very well in school. Grandma bribed her by telling her that she would give her a dollar for every A she received on her report card. In those days a dollar was considered a lot of money, but that promise never cost Grandma a cent. When I heard about the deal though, I got very excited. I was willing to stay over a Saturday night to show her my card with all A’s except one B. I mentally counted my aboutto- be fortune. When I proudly showed my card to Grandma, she knitted her brows and said, “And why is it, Dorothy Lou, you let yourself receive a B?” I didn’t have an answer for her but I had learned a lesson. Sunday morning, as I knelt on that hard kneeler, I informed God that I didn’t think life was fair. I have two special memories about my Grandma M. One is that she had the most beautiful snow-white hair. The other is a promise she extracted from me. On the day of her death, she called me to her bedside. She asked me to promise her that when I grew up I would be a proper young lady and not smoke or drink. At 5 years old, I was willing to promise.

Sierra Madre Volunteer Firefighters: Heroes of the Parade Inconsequential, Opinionated Meanderings By Terry Miller There were several things different about this year’s Fourth of July parade. First, and perhaps foremost, it was not held on the fourth, presumably as to not to offend those attending church. Indeed, the crowd was also considerably lighter this year and a little of the June gloom seemed to have crept all the way into early July. The beer garden was considerably less well-attended and beer sales were down enormously. Perhaps this was due to the choices available: Bud Heavy and Bud light. Most beer aficionados will not drink that stuff! I also think the beer garden may have been boycotted by those in support of the FD as they traditionally sponsor and man the beer garden as a fundraiser. This year it was for the Sierra Madre Little league. Not really sure how beer and little league seems more politically appropriate than Firefighting and hops, but I digress. These are decisions for those much wiser than I may ever be. Despite official calls for a “No water Zone” along the parade route Monday – a rather tremendous almost magical thing happened at the July 5th parade. The volunteer firefighters apparently overlooked the newly imposed limitations, as if to say, “Hey, the kids just want to have fun. This is a day for freedom from the tyranny of those Red Coats in city hall! I did hear one city official, who shall remain nameless for the time being, say that he took pictures of the offending firefighters and will be addressing the issue with the Fire Chief! I for one sure hope that was tongue in cheek and not simply a towing of the party line, as so many in local governments do to protect their precious derrieres. With Sierra Madre water rates possibly going up, residents’ temperatures too are rising exponentially. It therefore seemed only natural that something had to be done. And that something was a clear message to the city: at least

a 40% increase in water being enjoyed by hundreds of kids along the parade route over last year. Indeed, it might be said that Sierra Madre’s firefighters have had a love/hate relationship with certain city officials for some time now. Even the choice of Lew Watanabe as this year’s Grand Marshal was ironic, methinks, as one of Lew’s specialties is water sculptures! And the Sierra Madre City College float was a send-up of the city’s plan to raise the water rates and offered a rather clever solution “Sinko De July”…drink Cerveza! Traditionally, the parade has been a wonderful eclectic parade of water fest where kids vs. firefighters enjoyed friendly (and safe) water play to cool off in the summer heat. No one ever got hurt, but someone did complain a few years ago and the city set some rather unpopular and seemingly unnecessary rules and regulations as a result of potentially litigious grumpy parade goers. Note to City officials: Ban the water ban; in fact, ban all the restrictions entirely. Do what one of the most successful and popular parades - the Doo Dah – does and restrict nothing. When virtually anything goes, nearly everyone has fun. And we were somewhat confused as to why the Sierra Madre Police Dept. wasn’t in this year’s parade. Or if they were, we missed them. This is what the City’s website had to tell resident prior to the parade: “Traditionally, water has been squirted back and forth amongst viewers and participants during the parade. However, this year the City has established a new set of Water Play Zone Guidelines. Sierra Vista Park is now the only designated water play zone (west side of the park on the grass lawn). The Sierra Madre Fire Department will be spraying water into Sierra Vista Park for children and families to play in. Only water/ squirt guns will be permitted at the water play zone. Absolutely no water balloons or use of water hoses will be tolerated at the water play zone or anywhere along the parade route. Absolutely NO water will be allowed along the parade route. Parking signage will exhibit a “No Water Zone” notice along Sierra Madre Blvd.”

As I recall, a father was arrested a few years ago for shooting water at a police officer during the parade. Now if that wasn’t bad enough, a couple of years later, a business owner was arrested for spraying his sidewalk clean of dog poop in preparation for customers coming in for a spot of tea. Now, admittedly, he was arrested for allegedly “threatening a code enforcement officer” but it nevertheless came about, you guessed it, because of water. I have covered more parades in Sierra Madre than I can remember and this is the first time I’ve ever heard so much negativity towards city officials for such harebrained ordinances. If it’s not the inane parking regulations, it’s the hosing off of sidewalks. If the fourth is on a Sunday, we’ll parade around on the Fifth and restrict about every enjoyable thing the kids have come to expect about a parade. Candy, balloons, and yes WATER! For once, I agree (dare I say it) with “The Tattler” blog’s wordsmith, John Crawford who recently posted this comment on the aforementioned water restriction: “… the last thing any parent enjoys seeing is their kids subjected to the same tedious and politically correct over regulation of everything fun that we as adults face. Childhood, and certainly during as festive an occasion as a parade celebrating the birth of our American freedoms, should be a refuge from such petty tyranny. But alas, that no longer seems to be the case with our 4th (or 5th) of July Parade. It is quite an unfortunate lesson for children, if you think about it.” Well said, sir! Did I just agree with Mr. Crawford? Yes, I bloody well did, because he’s bloody well right! How quickly the city forgets how the firefighters helped during the Station Fire, or any fire in recent history. How they (the firefighters, who are mostly volunteers) put on the annual egg hunt for the kids and are always are there when you need them in a million different capacities. These are talented, extremely well-trained and dedicated caring men and women who choose to serve. For this, can we not please let our firefighters pull out their hoses on

the Fourth of July and help them help the kids enjoy one of the few freedoms left in this country? One Sierra Madre resident, Mr. Bob Matheson, wrote this to our newspaper this week: “Sierra Madre put its best foot and fire hose forward again this year as our townsfolk celebrated the birth of our country in grand, Sierra Madre AllAmerican fashion. The parade, the jazz band and activities for the kids in the park, and of course the Beer Garden, are the traditional 4th of July treasures of Sierra Madre. Kudos to the always fabulous Fourth of July Committee, headed now by Matt Bosse, for pulling everything together. It’s a time and place that we all keep coming back to, year after year...a celebration that singularly embodies the “Spirit of Sierra Madre.” It’s why we enjoy living here! Amidst all this great fun and success is there the risk of criticism? I saw a Fire Department engine occasionally stop and, very judiciously, spray a narrow pattern of water directly ahead. Common sense called for the water spray!

The kids had a thrill they’ll cherish for their lifetime. I can’t imagine anyone being critical of doing the right thing! So while our Fire Department was in the parade, our terrific Police, Water and Public Works Department employees should have been, too! They help keep things running 24/7, and deserve the same applause of an appreciative crowd. And talking about great people helping others, how lucky we are to have the fabulous Search & Rescue Team in our town, and in the parade, too!” Our phone calls to city officials for a statement on the water matter were not immediately returned. But one official comment did come from my good friend, Sierra Madre Fire Chief Steve Heydorff. Heydorff enlightened me saying that actually the ban on water was at his insistence due to a safety concern he had at last year’s parade. “I saw a bunch of kids running up to and in front of a rolling

fire engine and got very concerned for their safety. If water was sprayed on the engine’s windshield the operator might not have been able to stop in time.” Heydorff went on to say that he loves water and that since he’s an Aquarius, it is literally in his blood to be one with water (perhaps this is why he turned to firefighting). The ban on water could be resolved if there are safe solutions next year, and the Chief said he’d welcome any ideas the community might have to continue a tradition that many in town love. He wants the kids to enjoy the fun of water while at the same time ensuring their safety. Seems logical to me, but there’s got to be a way to make this work. Let us know what your thoughts are on how to keep the water flowing while keeping our kids safe. As always, we welcome your comments on this matter. Please e you’re your thoughts to editor@ sierramadreweekly.com

TheGoodLife

By Wally Hage International Happiness Day is July 10, 2010. The good things we do today for someone can become your happiness for tomorrow. It is said that if you make at least one person happy every day the reward is that you will experience an even greater happiness within yourself. It is just a simple formula. Psychologists tell us that your thoughts and actions can have a significant effect on your happiness. Happy people have good friends, and supportive relationships. They are optimistic, keep a positive outlook toward their daily

Happiness Is a Choice problems and are happy and thankful with what they have and do not ponder thoughts about what they don’t have! Research states that happiness is a state of mind or a feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, and pleasure. Religious thinkers often define happiness in terms of living a good life in a close relationship with God. That to experience happiness in your life you must think on good things and practice having good thoughts throughout the day. Don’t replay your problems and mistakes over and over or make them your topic of unhappy conversations with others. I remember, as a fourteen year old boy growing up alone with only a mother, that I was sad, lonely and unhappy as my father had died when I was eight and World War II conscripted my two older brothers. The sadness of these two life changing events began to shape my personality as my outlook

toward daily life was unhappy. One day while working around the neighborhood doing odd jobs and mowing lawns to help my mom meet the expenses of school clothes and school activities I met a neighbor who was a store window decorator for a large shoe store chain. He recognized my unhappiness and invited me to accompany him while he was decorating a store window. I was thrilled that he offered me a job to vacuum and to help tidy up the retail store for several hours each Sunday afternoon. The money was exciting and the work was fun. After several weeks helping my neighbor, the shoe store owner liked my enthusiastic work progress that he offered me a job on Saturdays to work in his shoe store as a stock boy. The store owner, who I referred to as Uncle Ben Goldman, became fully aware of my home life and realized that I had very minimal parenting. As an act of kindness, he took a personal interest in my

Well, after a week long casting-couch search (no doubt f ueled by a highly-lethal combination of Levitra and Red Bull), Bay announced today that he had selected Betty the Mannequin, best known for her role in the 80s hit “Mannequin,” as his replacement for Miss Fox.

says Ricardo Svornsen of the Shoulderlength Institute in Birmingham, Alabama. “My fear is that we’ve become so reliant on mullets that our economy may not be prepared to handle a softening in the mullet markets.” But not everyone has been so quick to jump off the mullet wagon. Walrus, former Beatle and all around bon vivant Paul McCartney issued a statement early Saturday morning urging caution on what he termed “betting against this hair.” Florence Henderson,

David Bowie and Jerry Springer were listed as signatories to the strongly worded statement. Despite the rally of support, early morning trading saw The Mullet plunge across multiple exchanges, with median lengths rising 2.3 inches, or 5.76%.

POPS Open Season with Something for Everybody By Bill Peters The new band shell erected by the Pasadena Sy mphony and and POPS for its new location for 2010 POPS Summer S er ies c rea t es a g rea t backstop to an otherwise dreary location, Lot H, outside Pasadena’s Rose Bowl. T he t ables w it h white linens turned the grass area into a festive party-like atmosphere for the estimated 2000+ that showed up for the opening concert of the Pasadena POPS Orchestra summer series to watch the twohour event that included a sharp sounding orchestra, a vaudeville juggling and acrobatic dance group, video close-ups of stage action on large screens at both sides of the band shell, and a wonderful fireworks display at the end. There was something for everybody. Conductor Rachael Worby selected a program of music of familiar classical favorites that could have come right out of a 1950’s Time-Life or Reader’s Digest compilation recording. T here were pieces of Bizet’s Carmen Suite No. 1 and 2; Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker” ballet and the Scherzo from his Symphony No. 4 and “Swan Lake”; Borodin’s “Polovtsian Dances” from his “Prince Igor”; two Khachaturian numbers including, of course, “Sabre Dance” from the “Gayuneh” ballet suite; Respighi; De falla; and finally Stravinksy’s finale to the “Firebird” suite.

The music was colorfully punctuated with members of the Cirque de la Symphonie, a group of acrobats, jugglers and st rong men—a ci rcus/ vaudeville act of six that presented adroit feats and body-bend ing rout ines that left most of the audience in giggles. Their work was seen up-close by the audience on two large video screens bookending the band shell. T he v ideo sc reen s also provided a nice looks at orchestra members performing and the sound system was absolutely ter-

rific and well-balanced— that is, the best balanced sound was hea rd from the rear of the fenced off event area, the area designated for sand-chair and blankets. Worby extolled the virtues of attendance at live musica l per for mances to the audience. But, the truth is that all the audience heard was the amplified sound of the on-stage performers. The mic-ing was so close to prevailing studio recording techniques that members of t he percussion section of the orchestra could be seen wearing

hea dphone s when t he large videos screens focused on them. T he orchest ra per formed under Worby’s athletic conducting style with eagerness and exactness. There appeared to be significant changes in orchestra personnel, including the assignment of Assistant Concertmaster Amy Hershberger as concertmaster of the evening rather than the Symphony’s A my K reston. No exact list of personnel was provided but many t h roughout t he st a nds seemed younger. A pretty spectacular round of fireworks display was set off to an almost out-ofcontrol speed-y version of S ou sa’s “ S t a r s a nd Stripes Forever” to end the evening. T he even i ng wa s pleasant and entertaining. But a warning: the bot t om of t he A r royo Seco gets chilly even before the sun goes down. We think even the next concert, Saturday, July 17, could require an extra sweater even though the music will be hot. Rachael Worby brings the orchestra, singers Doug La Brecque, Lisa Vroman and The Donald Brinegar Singers, to the Lawn Adjacent to the Rose Bowl with “I ♥ New York”. Tunes by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Frederick Loewe, Mancini and Gershwin on the Pops side and a small taste of Aaron Copland and Antonin Dvorak on the classic side, and more. Gates open for picnicking at 5:30 p.m., concert is at 7:30 p.m.

Kirkwall: A Scottish Hideaway Lost in Time

7

Need to Lose 50lbs or More this Summer? Train, Inc. Has You Covered

By Greg Aragon

Someday when I want to get away from the city and forget about life for a while, I will return to Kirkwall, Scotland. I’ll rent a small room near t he shore and spend a few days watching sheep graze, boats come in and out of the small harbor and admiring ancient architecture. I did this last summer and left with a memorable getaway. Located off t he off t he nor t her n coa s t of ma i n la nd Scot t la nd, K irkwall is t he capital and largest town of the O rk ney I s l a nd s. Wit h about 8,000 inhabitants, the island may be large by O rk ney st a nda rd s , but to me it is a Scottish h ideaway lost in t ime. The town began around 1046 as the settlement of Rögnvald II, Earl of Orkney. The name comes f r o m t he No r s e wo r d Kirkjuvagr (Church Bay). My la st jou r ney to the island began with a visit to the 11th century St. Mag nus Cat hedral, which was named after

Saint Mag nus Erlendsson, Earl of Orkney from 1108 – 1117. The church was built to honor Magnus a f ter he wa s mu r dered by a t r a it orou s cousin. The huge cathedral is highlighted by Romanesque and Gothic architecture melded together in beautiful arches, pillars and rocket-shaped peaks made of red and yel low sa ndst one, a nd m i xed w it h color f u l stained glass windows. The building is f lanked by a n eer ie g raveya rd with tombstones dating back to the 17th century. Nex t t o t he cat he dral are t he stor ybook rema ins of T he Ea rl’s Pa la ce, bu i lt i n 16 0 6 ,

and Bishop’s Palace, constructed in the 12th century. Besides historic cat hed r a l s a nd pa l a ce s , Kirkwall is full of 17th and18th century Norwegian styled houses and ot her st r uct u res , w it h tiny windows and gables. Many of the buildings are now home to great shops and restaurants. The main drags for shopping are Bridge and Albert Streets. Both narrow and beautifully med ieva l, t he st reet s a re perfect for walking, but unfortunately also have cars on them, so visitors have to be extra careful. While strolling through the shops, I discovered an old Woolworths store

and a great place for fish and chips. For an incredible excu rsion of f t he isla nd, I t o ok a b oa t r ide t o nea rby S k a r a B r a e , a prehistoric village dating from the Stone Age. Still in remarkable condition, the neolithic settlement of Skara Brae lies near the white beach of t he Bay of Ska ill. The archeological site is the best preser ved g roups of prehistoric houses in Western Europe. Uncovered by a storm in 1850, the village is a vivid picture of life around 5,000 years ago. Visitors can experience a prehistoric village and see ancient homes fitted with stone beds, dressers and seats. But my favorite thing to do while in Kirkland wa s to wa lk a long t he coast and enjoy the enchanting Scottish scenery. I could spend hours strolling past rolling hills l i ne d w it h s he ep a nd cat t le, wat ch i ng sma l l f ish i ng boat s br i ng i n their catch, or the ferries leave for another island in the Orkneys.

Lynda Linforth, owner of Train Inc in Arcadia, saw a need for special training for her clients who had in excess of 50 lbs to lose when three of her clients came to her prior to them receiving Bariatric surgery, or Lap Band as it is more commonly known. Her clients were embarrassed to go main stream gyms and enjoyed t he f r iend ly a nd more personal atmosphere at Train Inc. Lynda launched Fitness Rx a program specifically for pre and post Bariatric surgery patients and for people who had been advised by their physician to lose weight for health reasons. “Our clients had difficulty with balance and upper body strength and we incorporated exercises to help these issues” said Lynda. She also noticed that because of their lack of cardio stamina, some clients would attend her Br ide a nd Bik ini Boot Ca mp cla ss on ly once and then not come back. “They didn’t want to get left behind or to hold up the class, so they would just quit instead which was upsetting for us and for them”. Fitness Rx is a 30 minute, sma l l g roup cla ss that addresses weight loss, mobility, balance, muscle strength and cardio stamina. The class is for men and woman of all ages and fitness levels and is low in cost. “I don’t feel like a Plus size spectacle and appreciate the private atmosphere” said Susan D. who

FITNESS

has trained at Train Inc to lose the pre surgery weight requirement for Bariatric surgery. Susan, who had a spinal condition that had been affecting her mobility, is now pain free and able to get up and down off the floor more easily. Cori, who has struggled with her weight all of her life said “I have never felt so comfortable working out before and there are no gym bunnies running around!”. Train Inc also offers nutritional programs and more information on Fitness Rx and their private studio can be found at www.fitnessrxsite.com or by calling Lynda on 626 447 1049. Lynda Linforth and Train Inc were recently featured on the cable T V show “Dining with Dills”, as host Peter Dills, was training to improve a shoulder injury. Lynda Linforth is a certified personal trainer, licensed nutritionist and owner of Train Inc., a private personal training studio in Arcadia specializing in weight loss, post-rehab exercise, post-cancer exercise and nutrition.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Last Orders Please

Legendary Brits Pub and Eatery to Pour Final Pint this Sunday after World Cup Match

By Terry Miller Perhaps it’s all part of a plot and some kind of strange providence or irony that a wonderful British Pub is closing in Pasadena around the time America celebrates its independence from the Red Coats. Perhaps the greedy landlords of the world have finally realized that we Brits are slowly taking back the colonies and resent that ever-so-subtle attempt. For those of you who may never have experi-

enced Brits Pub and Eatery: Its success is a combination of ingredients not unlike like a splash of “Rovers Return” ( the central pub in the longest running soap opera in the UK – Coronation Street); a dash of ”Fawlty Towers” with characters from Monty Python flying in periodically for a pint of Holy Ale; add a pinch of Ted Danson in “ Cheers” and a good helping of cheeky British Birds ( women) as well as the ever-present seaside smell of malt vinegar on a

plate of perfectly prepared Fish and Chips. Mix those ingredients with a warm welcome and a funny story and I think you’ll find this is about as close to the UK as you’ll find anywhere in Los Angeles County. Perhaps it has something to do with England’s poor showing against so many great football players from around the globe in South Africa. Brits are understandably disappointed but good losers

Little League Holds Opening Day Ceremony

Arcadia Graduate Leads Softball Team to NCAA World Series Continued from the First Page

The inaugural “Little League Opening Day” for District 17 was held Saturday, June 26th at Sierra Vista Park in Sierra Madre, hosted by Sierra Madre Little League with Pete Siberell serving as President and Rick Caldwell as District Administrator. Twelve Participating leagues in the order of their original charter in the 50’s are Central Altadena Little League, East Altadena Little League, West Altadena Little League, Arcadia American Little League, Arcadia National Little League, Santa Anita Little League, Pasadena American Little League,

Pasadena American Little League, Pasadena Southwest Little League, West Pasadena Little League, San Marino National Little League, and Sierra Madre Little League which happens to be the host league this year. This division, 11 and 12 year-olds, is the age group that can progress to the Little League World Series held in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The program consisted of an introduction of all the players, coaches, League Presidents, and Board Members. Each player received a District Pin for participating in

the tournament and each league received a banner to use during the tournament to identify their participation. The ceremony included a violin performance of the National Anthem, the Little League Pledge, the Parent Volunteer Pledge, the First Pitch, and the Tournament Director declaring the opening of the tournament. Indeed a successful Opening Day for t he Tour na ment of Champions. Tour na ment ga mes are held at Sierra Vista Park, Heasley Field, from Sat u rday Ju ne 26t h to Thursday July 22nd.

Series in Oklahoma City, OK. After graduating from Arcadia High School in 2007, where she led her team to league and conference titles, picking up numerous individual awards along the way, Rodriguez headed to Yavapai College, a small junior college in Prescott, Arizona. She helped them win their first ever National Junior College Athletic Association Championship, and as a pitcher, was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association’s All-American Second Team. There, she also earned NFCA JC All-American First Team honors before transferring to UH for her junior year. And this season, Rodriguez has done spectacular for her team. After winning all three games in the NCAA Regionals against UC Davis, Stanford, and Texas Tech, UH was able to advance to the Super Regionals the following

weekend. I n t heir f irst ga me against Alabama, UH was mercied, 8-0, and was only able to get two hits off the Alabama pitcher. In the second game, the Rainbow Wahine were able to come back and win 8 -7, with five runs in the second inning, ending Alabama’s 28-game winning streak. In Game Three, however, UH struggled to fight back against the 3-4 hold that Alabama held over them—that is, until late in the bottom of the seventh inning with two outs, when Rodriguez launched her two-run home run off Alabama pitcher Kelsi Dunne, sending it barely right of the left foul pole in the outfield, scoring two runs for her team and winning the game, 5-4. Her walkoff home run helped add to UH’s 156 home runs this season, a new NCAA record, and was ranked as ESPN SportsCenter’s sixth-best play of the weekend. “I knew it had a chance of going foul,” Rodriguez said in a post-game press conference. “I stood there and watched it because I had to know if it was foul or fair.” Leading her team to its first appearance in the Women’s College World Series, Rodriguez also took the time to appreciate how much recognition her team was now receiving, and she realized exactly “how many people were watching that game. There were people from my old school (Arcadia High School) who

watched. I know people that got up at 7 (Hawaii time) to watch the game.” Megan Leahy, one of Rodriguez’s biggest fans and lifelong friends, now coaches Varsity Softball at Arcadia, and is “thrilled to hear [Rodriguez] is getting the publicity she deserves,” because of all the countless hours she has put into softball and the sacrifices she has made in order to keep playing. Her entire life has been dedicated to softball, and for Rodriguez, this moment embodied over a decade’s worth of hard work. “It’s been the most exciting day,” UH Coach Bob Coolen said to ESPN. “You aspire as a coach to make it to the World Series and this team really showed resilience and fortitude out there.” This upset proved to be the most stunning of the entire tournament—UH had a 14-12 record against teams participating, and thus not many expected them to make it very far. This was the first time since the 2003 incorporation of the Super Regionals to the NCAA Tournament that the No. 1 seed (in this case, Alabama) did not advance to the World Series. The game is nominated for the 2010 ESPY Awards, under the category of “Best Upset.” I n t h e Wo r l d S e ries, UH went on to win against Missouri, 3-2, lose to UCLA, 5-2, and lose to Arizona, 1-5, but for Rodriguez, making it to that point alone was “a great experience.”

Legendary Brits Pub and Eatery to Pour Final Pint this Sunday Continued from Page 9

and still faithfully watch the World Cup; some may even secretly be rooting for Germany. Or perhaps it is just a trend in business that the small, mom and pop operations are being rapidly ousted by the big guys. Either way you look at it, small businesses are being hurt by the big boys! On July 11, Brits Pub and eatery located at 1770 East Colorado Boulevard will close that popular location as the owner of the building wants to more than double the rent and replace the pub with a corporate cookie-cutter business. The pub with its Royal chef and loyal subjects had just celebrated its 7th year when the unscrupulous landlord (we’ll call him scrooge) presented t he owners with an offer they had no choice but to refuse. The pub has been a popular speakeasy for diplomats and British locals and those visiting from across the pond when they felt homesick for a good Cornish Pasty or a really

corny English joke. Whatever your reason for popping into the pub, it was always special and unlike anything this reporter has ever experienced. Sad ly it seems t he trend in business is to get as much money as you can for real estate and it seems corporations are willing to pay any price for visibility on Colorado Blvd. This, however, leaves small business in a huge bind and consequently kills the mom and pops that have

worked so hard for years to develop a customer base and provide a service for those who don’t want to go to a corporate bar and grill where no one knows your name. O n a ny g iven day you’ll find characters like Les Cotton, the President of GASP ( Guinness Appreciation Society of Pasadena) discussing the art and science of photography with local photojournalists while posing with some of the most wonderful Guin-

ness Girls on the planet. On a given evening you might find musicians such as the always wacky Snotty Scotty and The Hankies or the wonderfully talented Belles of Bedlam with the ribald costumes and lyrics. Truly, there was never a dull moment. You might find a local newspaper editor fishing for stories as CalTech students unwind after discovering the latest theory of relativity or note the California Culinary Arts students sampling

some of the best British food anywhere. The owners of Brits, like many small publicans, have established a niche market where expats and Anglophiles alike can meet and discuss English politics or have a bloody good laugh while enjoying excellent and traditional English foods that you’ll find in few places. Where else might you find a Scotch egg? Bangers and Mash? Or a decent pint of cold, draught Old Speckled Hen?

T he ow ners a ssu re me that in a few months they will re open once a suitable locat ion has been confirmed. So in the meantime, pop by the pub at 1770 East Colorado Friday July 9 for a farewell pint and a plate of fish and chips, watch a game or two of the finals. We look forward to the next chapter in the life of Brits Pub and Eatery. Good luck and thanks for a Great 7 Years in Pasadena. Keep us posted!

German Student Exchange Seeks Host Families For the twenty-third consecutive year, nineteen high school students from Germany will arrive in South Pasadena on Thursday, July 15 as part of a fourweek academic home stay program coordinated by the local non-profit group, International Education & Exchange (IEE). The program aspires to promote international understanding and goodwill through local “citizen diplomat” programs. In fact, IEE is still actively seeking local families to volunteer as hosts for a few more students. The students, ages 14 to 18, are all proficient in English and will attend morning classes in English and American Culture at an Academic Center in South Pasadena. The program, spanning July

15 through August 12, will include those classes, afternoon trips to local venues, and several full-day excursions to places like Disneyland, Universal Studios, and Sea World. Highlights of their visit include a four-day trip to San Francisco and an optional two-day whirlwind tour of Las Vegas. Members of host families are invited and encouraged to attend any outing, simply paying the group admission price. Although it is often fun for a visiting student when his or her host family includes another teenager, it is definitely not a requirement; in past years students have enjoyed their experiences with retirees and families with young children or no children at all. And as much as

The following is a summary report of the major incidents handled by the Department during this period. Sunday, June 27: 1. Between 11:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., unknown suspect(s) entered an unlocked vehicle parked at CVS Pharmacy, 1401 S. Baldwin Avenue, and stole a wallet containing cash and credit/debit cards from inside a purse. 2. Sometime between 03/22/10 and midnight on 06/23/10, the ex-boyfriend, a male white, 29 years of age, of the victim used the victim’s debit card account information to make unauthorized purchases totaling $1,220.83, in violation of fraudulent use of access card. Monday, June 28: 3. Between 12:15 a.m. and 12:50 a.m. on 06/28, the victim got a ride from her friend, a black male, 26 years of age. During the ride, the two argued and once they arrived at the suspect’s house, the suspect proceeded to choke the victim. They then left the house together and while inside the vehicle, the suspect punched the victim in the face approximately 10 times. Fearing for her life, the victim jumped out of the moving vehicle near the intersection of Santa Anita Avenue and Foothill Boulevard and ran to an Arco Gas Station for help. The suspect fled the area. 4. At approximately 12:15 p.m. in the 600 block of Encino Court, unknown suspect(s) entered an open garage and took two men’s mountain bikes, valued at $800. An area check for suspects was met with negative results. The bikes were later found discarded at the Peck Road Water Conservation Park Tuesday, June 29: 5. Sometime between 4:00 p.m. on 06/28 and 8:00 a.m. on 06/29, unknown suspect(s) cut the pad lock

At approximately 8:00 p.m., unknown suspect(s), two male blacks in their 20’s, entered Ben Bridge Jewelers at 400 South Baldwin Avenue and demanded the keys to the jewelry cases by displaying a handgun. The suspects then used a hammer to open several cases and stole approximately $35,000.00 worth of diamond rings and fled the location to a third suspect who was waiting for them in a getaway vehicle. Wednesday, June 30: 7. Sometime between 4:00 p.m. on 06/29 and 1:00 p.m. on 06/30, workers removed the tent covering a home in the 1000 block of Diablo Drive, which had been fumigated. They discovered an open window and ransacked master bedroom. Toxic chemicals were still present and officers were unable to access the interior. 8. At approximately 3:30 p.m., a J.C. Penney employee, at 400 South Baldwin Avenue, was arrested for commercial burglary after an internal investigation revealed the employee had been stealing clothing then returning the items for refunds between May 9, 2010 and May 16, 2010. Suspect is a Chinese female, 59 years of age, who was placed under private person’s arrest. Thursday, July 1: 9. Sometime between 4:45 p.m. on 06/30 and 7:15 a.m. on 07/01, unknown suspect(s) cut the soccer nets and removed them from 2 goal posts. The suspect(s) took the nets to the basketball courts and set them on fire using a spray lubricant as an accelerant. 10. At 8:45 p.m. two suspects, a male Hispanic, 16-17 years of age, and a male black, 16-17 years of age, stole the victim’s purse while she was sitting at the bus stop adjacent to the south curb line of Huntington Drive east of First Avenue. Her purse was recovered; however, her money, miscellaneous credit cards and Identification Card were still missing.

Friday, July 2: 11. At approximately 3:00 p.m., in the 1700 block of Alta Oaks, a male white, 21 years of age, used his cell phone to make a video recording of his friend, the victim, while she was changing in violation of disorderly conduct. The phone was taken into evidence. 12. Between 6:30 p.m. and 6:44 p.m., a female black, 19 years of age, entered Hollister, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, with the intent to steal perfumes. When she was confronted by loss prevention, she fled from the store. She was detained by loss prevention and a private person’s arrest was made for burglary. Saturday, July 3: 13. Between 12:30 a.m. and 12:36 a.m., the suspect, male black, 28 years of age, approached the victim as she left Garden Café, 850 South Baldwin Avenue. The suspect robbed her of her purse and other property at gunpoint. The suspect fled the scene and an area check led officers to locating the vehicle and subsequently detaining the suspect in the parking lot of Chase Bank at 60 East Huntington Drive. He was arrested for robbery. 14. Between 3:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., officers responded to a report of a brush fire north of Bonita Skate Park, 100 S. Second Avenue.
