Great Dane Carries SixMonth-Old Baby from Mother’s Arms

The second reading of Ordinance No. 1312 adjusting water rates in the City of Sierra Madre is scheduled for the Regular Council meeting of January 11, 2011. The meeting begins at 6:30 PM at Sierra Madre City Hall, 232 West Sierra Madre Boulevard. The public is invited to attend and provide comment at the meeting. Ordinance No. 1132 will implement a four-year rate increase program in which water rates will increase approximately 7.54% each fiscal year beginning July 1, 2011. The ordinance will also introduce tiered water rates, which will result in slightly higher water rates for those customers using higher amounts of water. Ordinance 1312 eliminates certain charges for multipleunit residential customers, reduces the Utility Users Tax Rate on water, and provides for annual review of Sierra Madre Water Department maintenance, debt service, and other operational costs to ensure that rates are kept as low as possible. For additional information regarding Sierra Madre water rates, please visit the City’s website at www.cityofsierramadre. com, or contact City Hall at (626) 355-7135.

Baby Suffering from Collapsed Lung and Several Broken Bones BY SUSAN MOTANDER Monday afternoon an infant in Monrovia was snatched from her mother’s arms by a Great Dane.  The woman had gone to the home of a friend and neighbor, the dog’s owner, when the animal grabbed the child from her mother’s arms.  According to Lt. Mike Lee of the Monrovia Police Department, the attack appeared to be unprovoked. The baby was rushed by helicopter to the Los Angeles County, USC Medical Center.  While still

I’ve come to know a rather wonderful and exceptionally unique, benevolent lady over the years. Her name: Rupa Dore. Ask anyone who knows her, and they’ll no doubt agree that Rupa is one of the most unique and giving individuals one may ever come across in a lifetime. Rupa Dore, 75, teaches Yoga at Santa Anita Church in Arcadia. She has always struck me as kind but moreover she teaches me something every time I see her. This past Saturday, Rupa invited me to celebrate the Indian festival of light, Divali, complete with a candle light ceremo-

Federal Funds to Boost College and Career Readiness and Graduation Rates The Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) announced that it will receive a $250,000 federal Enhancing Education Technology (EETT)/ American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant to support college and career readiness and raise graduation rates. The grant will support an early warning system that uses student attendance, discipline and behavioral data to identify and provide early intervention for students who may be at risk of dropping out of high school. “This grant recognizes the District’s strategic approach to improve graduation rates, and to

use data to support the individual student,” said Superintendent Edwin Diaz. “We actively sought this grant to ensure that we can maintain our focus on dropout prevention and college and career readiness despite the current budget crisis.” The funds will be used to make data part of the ongoing cycle of instructional improvement, teach students to examine their own data and set learning goals, establish a clear vision for the use of school-wide data, and to provide training to support teachers’ use of online grading to increase student and parent

BY DOROTHY DENNE     Sometimes I’m glad that I don’t throw much away.  I saved this little bit of holiday humor from back in 2001.  Nothing has changed.    Many of us approach the winter holidays with dread, exhaustion, anxiety and isolation.  We’re victims of the Christmas blahs, the Hanukkah ennui, and, for the pagans among us, the Solstice slump.  But, while science has not yet found a cure for the holiday blues, there are definite coping strategies. Shop for the most inportant people first.  We always want to get our loved ones somehing unique and special, so there we are at the quickie mart at 3 a.m. on Christmas Eve, trying to put together a gift basket of Twinkies, Crazy

Glue and car air fresheners. Don`t load up on fats and sweets.  There`s nothing worse than being bloated and wired at the same time.  If you eat sensibly, you`ll be in a better frame of mind.  But if you insist on overdoing it, get a pair of those pants with the elastic waistband--at the very least, you`ll avoid the midmeal unbuttoning, which is always a humiliating experience. Get up from the table and get some exercise.  It is a proven stress reducer.  Take a hike.  At minimum, wash the dishes by hand. Before you start up a conversaton, make a mental list of topics to avoid.  If you›re feeling at all blue, you›ll probably want to rule out discussion on:  your career, personal life, health, religion, politics,

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! You are cordially invited to join us in celebrating the joyous Holiday Season at our

Relax.  Take a deep breath.  Take time out to rejoice at the little things:  the smell of  bread baking, the sound of fire crackling, the sight of a little piece of broccoli wedged between your stuck-up cousin`s teeth. Don’t make resolutions now.   There’s too much pressure this time of year.  Wait until you’re in a better frame of mind, like in February, which is the Chinese New Year.  And if you happen to be Chinese, you should wait until the Jewish New Year, which is in September. Above all, folks, just lighten up and enjoy.  

Pasadena Community Helps Spread Holiday Cheer Throughout The Southland   University of Phoenix Southern California Campus and Pasadena residents handed out new toys to local underprivileged children who live in Pasadena and surrounding cities at the second annual Toys for Tots Winter Wonderland event. The event was held at University of Phoenix Pasadena Learning Center. In partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation and Pasadena-based Billionaire Mind nonprofit organization, University of Phoenix Southern California Campus wanted to promote community giving and help bring holiday joy to children during this holiday season.  Last year, the Southern California Campus received more than 200 toys donated from students, staff and faculty. This year, the campus’ 14 learning centers collected more than 800 new, unwrapped toys that were donated and distributed to local children in the community.

The Day The Monkey Died The quest for Monrovia High School’s first ever CIF Championship Game was held at Arcadia High School because Monrovia High School’s new stadium failed to meet CIF regulations for seating for the visitors. What a loss of revenue dollars for the City of Monrovia. Arcadia High School’s stadium was filled with an overflowing capacity crowd. The announcer made several pleas for the crowd to “move over” as more people filled the stadium. The Monrovia Wildcats’ bid to capture a CIF Championship is well documented in their past history as 9-time Runner-Ups, but this night would be different unlike last year’s downpour of rain. This night was perfect for a football game. The calm autumn air left Old Glory without movement. The autumn colors of the liquid amber trees could be seen in the distance as the bright red team colors filled the visitors’ side. The only chill that was felt was when Ms. Zamora (‘96 Monrovia Grad) sang the National Anthem. Several heads turned from the flag to catch the songstress of the night. This was our night. The crowd reflected the diversity of the City of Monrovia. Yes, they all came out. Old, young and former players. Teachers and past and present elected officials. After a few questionable penalties the Wild Cats team released an assault on offense. The after party was held at T. Phillips and Ale House & Grill(in Monrovia). Coaches, current and former players all walked around in a daze understanding something special had happen. The monkey was off their backs. So when is the parade in Monrovia?

To the Editor: Congresswoman Judy Chu believes that the socalled DREAM Act “strengthens our economy and bolsters national security” (“Chu Pushes for DREAM Act Vote,” December 2, 2010). “Every day that goes by without bringing the DREAM Act to the floor is not just a disappointment for millions of promising, law-abiding young Americans,” she said, “it’s a setback for the future of our nation.” It would be a real setback for hard-pressed, lawabiding citizens and taxpayers to grant citizenship (read: amnesty) to 2.1 million undocumented students—a quarter of whom live in California. Chu forgets to report that state taxpayers spend an estimated $10 billion a year (or $13 billion if you believe the latest report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR)) on education, housing and medical care for undocumented immigrants. Chu ignores a recent report by California Community Colleges Chancellor Jack Scott, who told the Los Angeles Times that an estimated 140,000 students did not enroll this year because they could not get into classes (“Just Call Them College Students in Waiting,” October 4, 2010). It’s bad enough that the state’s taxpayers foot a $10-billion bill for illegal immigration. It’s insulting that Judy Chu expects their native-born, college-bound children to step aside for hordes of newly-minted “citizens.” Worst of all, a back-door amnesty for two million students and their extended families will trigger another wave of illegal immigration, which we cannot afford or survive.

Celebrating Christmas Santa Anita Ready Set For Opening Day, Dec. 26

TheGoodLife BY WALLY HAGE

remember, as a child growing up, experiencing the thrills and joy of celebrating an old fashioned Christmas. The snow covered fields, sleigh rides, trimming the tree with silver bells, stockings hung on the fireplace and beneath them a crackling fire. The fragrance of fir bows and the wonderful smell of a fresh cut evergreen Christmas tree. Christmas Carols playing in the background with children laughing and hoping for that very special gift that Santa Claus will bring. Setting out cookies and milk for dear Santa and hoping to hear the sleigh bells ringing upon the shoulders of his reindeer. What a wonderful time! Political Correctness and some Educators have been trying for some time to silence the real reason for Christmas. Often referring to it as the Holiday

Season. A Circuit Court Judge in New Jersey recently ruled that students attending school in the local school district could not sing the Christmas carol “Silent Night” in any school activities as it could be considered offensive to some students. This is truly Political Correctness in our society, gone berserk. The following e-mail poem that I received expresses those frightening new thoughts about celebrating Christmas. “Twas just weeks before Christmas, When throughout our Land; Fewer parents are praying, Nor people taking a stand! Political Correctness had taken Children’s joy away, They could not sing nor have a Christmas Play; Children were told by their schools not to sing,

About Shepherds, Wise Men, Angels and like things. That it might hurt feelings ... teachers would say, That December 25th...is just another Holiday! Well, thank God, Christian Believers and many others too...are still dedicated to celebrate the Holy Christmas Event, remembering the Angels’ proclamation of great joy. ”That unto you is born this day in the city of David, Christ the Lord, a Savior, a Redeemer, the Prince of Peace, Son of God. That Jesus was born in a manger for you and for me, so that believers could wear a royal robe of salvation.” This is truly the reason to rejoice and proudly celebrate this Holy Christmas Season. May God Bless You and Your Families ... now and throughout the New Year 2011.

The 122nd Rose Parade presented by Honda, themed Building Dreams, Friendships and Memories, will feature a number of outstanding eligible float entries but only 25 entries will be selected to receive awards in a variety of categories and specifications including the Viewers’ Choice Award. This year, all broadcast outlets have the opportunity to participate in the Viewers’ Choice Award pro-

cess, making participation even more exciting.

Fans can vote up to five times for their favorite float. Voting will take place from 8:00 a.m. (PST) to 2:10 p.m. (PST) on January 1, 2011. “The Viewers’ Choice Award allows fans from all around the world to have the opportunity to join our prestigious judges in awarding the entries in the 122nd Rose Parade,” said Gene Gregg, chairman of the Tournament of Roses Judging Committee. “We are very excited to have parade fans get involved once again and bring back the award for a third year in a row.” For the last two years,

parade fans chose Cal Poly University as the winner of the Viewers’ Choice Award. Cal Poly’s 2010 float, themed “Jungle Cuts,” received 20,788 votes out of a total of 50,535 votes submitted. The float featured wild animals receiving haircuts and makeovers from monkey barbers performing high above the tree tops. Cal Poly’s 2010 float, themed “Jungle Cuts,” received 20,788 votes out of a total of 50,535 votes submitted. For all awards other than the Viewers’ Choice Award, the 2011 Tournament of Roses float judges will have the traditional task of judging the beautiful floats from a professional perspective. The judges’ scores are based on criteria such as creative design, floral craftsmanship, artistic merit, computerized animation, thematic interpretation, floral and color presentation and dramatic impact.

Overall Economic Impact To Region Significant Santa Anita Park, America’s premier winter racing venue, will open its gates for its traditional winter/spring meeting on Dec. 26, and its opening is eagerly awaited by not only racing fans nationwide, but by businesses of all kinds throughout Southern California and beyond.  “Over the course of the first week, we’ll employ and average of 1,000 to 1,200 people per day,” said Santa Anita President George Haines.  “Santa Anita first opened in 1934, and along with the fact we’re the longest running major sports enterprise in California, we employ more people on a seasonal basis than just about anyone else in this region.” Santa Anita, which opened on Dec. 25, 1934, and has accommodated crowds in excess of 85,000, employs a wide variety of people. “On opening day, we expect to have more than 400 mutuel tellers on-line and we’ll also have anywhere from 250 to 300 servers, bartenders, ushers and customer service people working.  Additionally, we’ll have about 15 Jockey Room valets, the same number of assistant starters on the starting gate and 10 to 12 people operating heavy equipment like tractors and water trucks, which are required each

racing day. “We also have a full staff of union tradesmen, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, janitorial, etc.  When you factor in staffing that is required in our Broadcast Center, Racing Office, Marketing and Graphics, Press Box and parking lots, you begin to realize that all of these people, collectively, have a very significant impact on the economy in this area. “The overall economic impact of our live racing is felt not just locally, but throughout California and around the country.  When you consider some of the integral components of our sport, from the point of conception, to the feed, the training, transportation and all of the people and businesses that work in and are effected by these various aspects of our industry, you begin to realize just how important a strong, viable Santa Anita is.” Haines also noted that big crowds are expected during Santa Anita’s opening week and that bodes well for other businesses in the area as well. “All of our advance ticket sales are up significantly over last year and we’re hoping to have more than 40,000 people here on opening day.  Whenever we’re able to generate big on-track crowds, it has an immediate effect locally, on

places like hotels, bars, restaurants, and other serviceoriented businesses.” Peter Amundson, mayor of the city of Arcadia, agreed.    “A prosperous Santa Anita Park is vital to the city of Arcadia, its businesses and the community at-large,” said Amundson, who also grew up in Arcadia.  “Everywhere I go, people are thirsting for Santa Anita to reopen.  Santa Anita has been idle as a live racing facility since April and that’s the longest dryrun here in Arcadia since 1968.  It’s left a tangible void in the community, the likes of which I haven’t seen in my lifetime. “A wide variety of businesses have felt the effect of this.  Hotels and restaurants are really hurting and we are all very excited that racing is coming back the day after Christmas. “When Santa Anita is up and running, the city of Arcadia benefits directly by increased room occupancy and sales tax revenues and beyond that, is the fact that fans and employees of Santa Anita are inclined to shop and spend money here and the benefits are immediate.  We can’t wait for opening day!” For more information on opening day and upcoming racing action, go to www.santaanita.com.

The Pasadena Tournament of Roses is a volunteer organization that annually hosts the Rose Parade® presented by Honda, Rose Bowl Game® presented by VIZIO and various associated events. The 122nd Rose Parade presented by Honda, themed Building Dreams, Friendships & Memories, will take place Saturday, Jan. 1, 2011, at 8 a.m. (PST) featuring majestic floral floats, high-stepping equestrian units and spirited marching bands. Following the parade, the 97th Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO will kick off at 2:10 p.m. (PST) and feature an exciting match-up between two of the top collegiate football teams in the nation.

Wildcat Win Puts Monrovia on the Map BY SUSAN MOTANDER While there was nothing to be ashamed of in losing the CIF Championship in a closely fought game, there is a great deal more to be said of winning it.  And this year the Wildcats did exactly that.   After reaching the playoffs in the preceding year and losing in the final game, this victory was especially sweet.  Finally, a CIF Championship.  Ten times in the preceding 75 years, the Wildcats had lost in the final game (including my own Senior year), but this time they won. Coach Ryan Maddox was justifiable proud of his team.  “We played well as a team,” he said, reluctant to point out any one player.  Maddox did note that Jay Henderson had managed four touchdowns, three on passes from Quarterback Nick Bueno and the fourth on a punt return for a final

38-8 victory over Whittier Christian. The score is not reflective of the strength of the opposition--Whittier Christian had been averaging 35 points per game-but Monrovia was able to hold them in a strong defensive game.  “It’s an incredible feeling,” Maddox said, “The culmination of three years of work.” The only sad part was that the victory did not take place on its own new field.  Because of an error in the fabrication of the new visitors side stands at Wildcat Field, the game was played at Arcadia High School.  But it was sweet none the

less.

And the faithful fans showed up in force.  There were more than 4,000 in

“ZERO WASTE - YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN!”

Funded by a Grant from the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle)

First Avenue Middle School’s two rock bands (beginning and advanced) performed to a standing room only audience on Thursday evening, December 2, 2010, in the school’s recently renovated auditorium. While the music was loud the hearts of the musicians were overflowing! Through ticket sales the bands raised $1,150.50 for Arcadia Child Health Council. Mike Danielson, known as Mr. D, has been teaching a variety of music classes at First Avenue Middle School for over 20 years. “The rock band classes are a part of the terrific electives program at First Avenue. Because we are so fortunate to provide these opportunities to our young people, we wanted to provide for some resources for those in our own community who are less fortunate. We are happy that our music can reach beyond our walls,” said Mr. Danielson about the

donation. Mr. Danielson was unanimously chosen as California’s nominee to the National Education Association Foundation Award for Teaching Excellence in 2009. The Arcadia Child Health Council was organized in 1937, during the Depression, to meet the health needs of Arcadia’s children from limited income families. It continues to offer this help today, assisting with access to needed health care, on a round-the-clock basis, to children who live within or attend school in the Arcadia Unified School District. The Council helps fulfill medical, dental, optical, pharmaceutical, and counseling needs.

The Arcadia PTAs, community service clubs and private donations provide financial -support for the all-volunteer Arcadia Child Health Council. Additionally, many local doctors, dentists, and therapists donate or offer their services at substantially lower rates. Contact: Sandhya Ravi,

Pasadena Police Department Prepares For A DUI Saturation Patrol The Pasadena Police Department will be conducting a “Zero Tolerance” DUI Saturation Patrol on Friday, December 17, 2010. The program will begin at 8:00 P.M. and will end at 3:00 A.M. This enforcement operation will be in an effort to reduce and remove the number of impaired drivers traveling on city streets. DUI programs are a useful and effective tool for achieving the Pasadena Police Department’s goal of detecting and removing

impaired drivers from our streets while improving traffic safety, saving lives and preventing injuries during the holiday season. The Pasadena Police Department encourages people who are leaving home and planning on consuming alcoholic beverages to select a designated driver prior to drinking or to simply telephone one of the many taxi cab services for a safe ride home. In addition, it is a violation of law for any driver

under the age of 21 years to operate a motor vehicle with any measurable amount of alcohol in their system. The public is encouraged to help keep our roadways safe and to ‘Report Drunk Drivers by Calling 911’ whenever you see a suspected drunk driver. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Red Light Program “Run a Red Light and You Will Be Cited” The Pasadena Police Department will be conducting a Red Light Enforcement Program on Friday, December 17, 2010. This enforcement detail will be deployed throughout the City of Pasadena. The hours of operation will be from 1:00 P.M. to 8:00 pm. The Pasadena Police Department is committed to reducing the number of traffic collisions resulting from drivers running red

lights or driving aggressively. The ultimate goal is to enforce and educate the driving public at the same time reducing serious injuries and fatal collisions. A RED LIGHT means stop at the stop line, crosswalk or before the intersection. Unless you are making a right turn, you must wait for the green light before you proceed. After making a complete stop, you may turn right on a red light if the intersection/

crosswalk is clear of pedestrians and traffic. However, if the intersection is posted with a “No Right Turn on Red” sign, you must wait for a green light before any turning movement. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Grow Your Community, Shop Pasadena for the Holidays Supporting our local businesses is very important to the ongoing economic vitality of the Pasadena area. The prosperity of everyone in Pasadena is dependent on the financial health of our business community as a whole.  One clear way everyone who lives, works or does business in Pasadena can aid in the recovery of our local economy is to spend money in the city where they live, work and do business.  The shops, restaurants and services that create local jobs and provide the financial bedrock for Pasadena are dependent on local patrons for their livelihood and ongoing vitality. Every $100 spent in Pasadena stores generates $9.75 in sales tax. Of that sales tax, 1% of the base amount or about $.075 comes back to the City of Pasadena. The city uses that money to pay for park maintenance, police and fire services, tree trimming and a number of programs that keep Pasadena safe, clean and attractive – for residents, businesses, employees and everyone who does business in Pasadena. In addition, Pasadena busi-

nesses pay property tax, business license fees and more. In addition, another $1.50 goes to fund transportation projects and services in Los Angeles Countypaying for street improvements, bus, light rail and subway service and more. Sales tax dollars, business license fees, property taxes and other assessments paid by business return money to Pasadena to pay for essential services such as police and fire protection and also support our local Pasadena public schools, parks and Pasadena City College.  Spending in Pasadena preserves local jobs, maintains local businesses and saves travel time and gas. To encourage local residents, businesses and workers to shop in Pasadena, the City of Pasadena and the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring Grow Your Community, Shop Pasadena promotional campaign to encourage local residents, workers, businesses and others to shop at Pasadena stores during the holidays. The campaign consists of advertisements in local media, which are generous-

ly donated by local media outlets. The campaign also features bus shelter ads that will be on display throughout Pasadena from midNovember to mid-January. The ads were designed in partnership with The Agency, a student-run advertising cooperative at Art Center College of Design. The Pasadena Chamber and City of Pasadena encourage everyone who lives, works or does business in Pasadena to please think locally when shopping and buy in Pasadena. Grow Your Community, Shop Pasadena campaign is not affiliated with other local or national efforts to encourage patronage of local enterprises, though the Chamber of Commerce and the City of Pasadena support and encourage those efforts, as well. It is in everyone’s best interest to promote the vitality of our local businesses and encourage those who appreciate and benefit from the excellent quality of life in Pasadena to support it by shopping locally and patronizing those businesses, large and small, that pay a dividend to our community.

Divali Festival of Lights Continued from page 1 ny, traditional music and dance plus a wonderful potluck vegetarian meal. Divali is perhaps the most well-known of the Indian festivals: it is celebrated throughout India, as well as in Indian communities throughout the diaspora. It usually takes place eighteen days after Dusshera. It is colloquially known as the “Festival of Lights”, for the common practice is to light small oil lamps (called diyas) and place them around the home, in courtyards, verandahs, and gardens, as well as on roof-tops and outer walls. In urban areas, especially, candles are substituted for diyas; and among the nouveau riche, neon lights are made to substitute for candles. The celebration of the festival is invariably accompanied by the exchange of sweets and the explosion of fireworks. As with other Indian festivals, Diwali signifies many different things to people across the country. In north India, Diwali celebrates Rama’s homecoming, that is, his return to Ayodhya after the defeat of Ravana and his corona-

tion as king; in Gujarat, the festival honors Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth; and in Bengal, it is associated

the lyrics to many songs but I understood the gentle feeling of celebration and the importance of sharing good

with the goddess Kali. Everywhere, it signifies the renewal of life, and accordingly it is common to wear new clothes on the day of the festival; similarly, it heralds the approach of winter and the beginning of the sowing season. Last Saturday about 50 people attended the celebration. Many of the celebrants were Rupa’s students and other friends. Not knowing the language I didn’t understand

food, dance and conversation with those of many different cultures–-united for peace. A gesture of lighting of candles and a moment of silence was powerful last Saturday as were the many dancers. Clothes were gifted by members of Rupa Yoga. Designer clothes were by Anjali Rathi. There was a terrific display of Rangoli– Indian Festive Drawings--Harshana the henna lady designed some wildly unique hand paintings. Additionally there was a hard hathayoga demonstration by Mark Tierno. Divali is the most important festival for the

Hindus: it is the victory of the Good over the evil; of the valiant King Rama over the demon Ravana. President Obama gave a goodwill message regarding the Divali last week--he had “done his home work well” according to Rupa! D o c tor Parveen Kaur, a great believer in health benefits of yoga, attended the festival as she does every year. For more information on Yoga and the classes offered: Rupa Dore can be reached via e mail: rupa.dore@gmail. com

This may be one of the most emotionally compelling activities that I’ve been involved with since coming to the City of Pasadena and I welcome the opportunity to share the joy of the season with the personnel that coordinated this and most importantly, with the young ones who have been separated from their families during the holiday season.”

PCC Students Send a Strong Message Hoping for Passage of the DREAM Act The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality by Any Means Necessary (BAMN) rallied on the steps of Pasadena City College Tuesday lunchtime to demand that Congress pass the Federal DREAM Act before it adjourns for Christmas and to demand the passage of the California DREAM Act. Approximately one dozen individuals, many of whom were afraid to give their names; and some even shielding their faces with the signs of protest, insisted that the DREAM Act would change their lives for the better of all of California. The Federal DREAM Act, which would offer hundreds of thousands of undocumented U.S. residents a pathway to citizenship, was passed in the U.S. House of Representatives on December 8 but was postponed indefinitely in the U.S. Senate on December 9. The California DREAM Act, which would give undocumented California high school graduates access to state-funded college and university financial aid programs, can be re-raised in the state legislature as early as January 2011. Its passage would put California in

the lead of the nation for immigrant rights and open up the possibilities of other statewide DREAM Acts and the National DREAM Act’s passage. BAMN Organizer Adam Lerman said, “Winning both DREAM Acts would be a major step forward toward full and equal

rights for all immigrants-with and without papers. We could break through the racist “back-of-thebus” treatment that too many people experience in this society; a society which uses immigration status to justify so much of that discrimination.” Pasadena City College student and BAMN Organizer Jose (last name withheld due to undocumented status) said, “Winning the Federal and Cali-

fornia DREAM Acts will require more than making phone calls to overcome the racism and cynicism of both the Democratic and Republican Party politicians. It will require building the new civil rights and immigrant rights movement taking mass, direct action like those in 2006 when students across the nation rallied, marched, and walked-out to defend our rights and defeated the racist anti-immigrant law, HR4437.” Maricruz Lopez, BAMN Organizer, said, “We will not allow our rights and the rights of our families to be used as a political football. We can break through the politicians’ games if we build the tremendous power of our movement independently. Lobbying, begging, or becoming the creatures of some politician’s calculated electoral ambitions will mean we fail. Building our movement on an independent basis and holding mass mobilizations is the key to winning.” The students assert that they want no part of a “Racist, Arizona-Style, Anti-Immigrant Initiative”.

Society of Professional Journalists Honors Larry Mantle as 2010 “Distinguished Radio Journalist” The Talk Show host of 89.3's KPCC-FM's AirTalk to Recieve Award The Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists will honor 89.3 KPCC-FM’s AirTalk host Larry Mantle as the Distinguished Radio Journalist of 2010. The annual award is based on a journalist’s body of work over time, and is one of the most coveted radio awards in the Southland. Mantle is being honored for his work on KPCC’s AirTalk, which he established in 1985 and has hosted ever since – the longest continuous run of any talk radio host in Southern California. Larry’s deep family roots in Los Angeles and his incredible range of interests have made him one of the region’s best known radio personalities and talk radio hosts. He interviews world leaders, movie stars and everyday people using a combination of intelligence, warmth, insight and respect. KPCC listeners value his generosity, toughness (when necessary) and fairness, as well as his uncanny ability to talk with multiple guests on anything from Afghanistan to high-speed rail to the latest breakthroughs in biomedical research. Of the award, Larry

said, “It’s especially Berle, Walter Mosley, The Greater Los Anmeaningful to be honored Jack Welch and Sting. geles chapter of the Sociby my peers in Southern California radio. All of us working on AirTalk are thrilled to have our work recognized by the Society.” A i r Ta l k has won many Golden Mike, Associated Press and Los Angeles Press Club awards over the years, including “Best Talk Show.” The program is a frequently cited source of news and information by the Southern California, national and international press. In April 2005, Angel City Press published This is AirTalk: 20 Years of Conversations on 89.3 KPCC.

Temple City Man Rescued from Brush With Death Air-Lifted To Safety By A Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Rescue Helicopter Friday Evening At about 4:00PM, a 22-year old man was hiking with his 21-year old friend in the Angeles National Forest when the 22-year old man fell from the hiking path down the mountainside, and close to the edge of a cliff.  The two men are Asian-Americans from Temple City. The injured man used his cell phone to call the desk at Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station and connected with Watch Deputy Steve Toly.  Deputy Toly spoke to the man for about 15 minutes until the phone connection was lost.  During their conversation, sheriff’s Air-5 rescue helicopter was called to the scene, along with Altadena Sheriff’s Station and Search and Rescue ground personnel. Deputy Toly talked with the man to keep him calm, determine his location so he could direct rescuers to him, and estimate how

much danger he was in. The victim explained he had fallen from the hiking trail an unknown distance, and was hanging onto a bush to keep from falling off a cliff.  He said he could not see his friend, but he could hear him as they shouted to one another a distance away.  He could also hear a helicopter far away. The victim explained that the two men had just gone for a day hike.  They did not have backpacks, food or water, or warm clothing.  He said he was injured, but didn’t know the extent of his injuries.  Deputy Toly said, “He said he was in pain and was worried he was going to go over the side of the cliff, but he did a great job of remaining calm.  He is very lucky his cell phone worked in that area.” Having determined the approximate location of the two men, Sheriff’s Air-5 Rescue helicopter deputies

responded to the 2200 block of Pine Crest Avenue, Altadena, approximately two miles up Eaton Canyon, in the Angeles National Forest. Deputies hurried to find the two men, as the sun was going down and it was quickly getting dark. By about 4:30PM, Air-5 rescue helicopter deputies found the two men, one of whom was clinging to a ledge approximately 500 feet above the base of a waterfall, unable to move.  A Sheriff’s Emergency Services Detail (ESD) paramedic was lowered from the helicopter and hoisted both men into the aircraft. They were treated by ESD paramedics and subsequently transported to an area hospital for additional medical treatment.  They are being treated for non-life threatening injuries. The Air-5 Rescue helicopters, eight Search and Rescue teams, and Emer-
