Paul R. Williams Deserves a Showcase BY SUSAN MOTANDER

10 a.m. to 4 p.m. – The 29th annual Black History Parade and Festival will begin at Charles White Park in Altadena and end with a family festival at Robinson Park in Pasadena. (626) 744-7300 for details - Photo by Terry Miller

This year’s Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts is in the English Country Manor revival style, was built in 1927 and was designed by Paul R. Williams. That does not tell the whole story. Paul Williams was a black man who taught himself to sketch upside down so that his white clients would not be made to feel uncomfortable by having to sit next to him. “If I allow the fact that I am a Negro to checkmate my will to do, now, I will inevitably form the habit of being defeated,” Williams wrote later in his life.

Williams was born in Los Angeles in 1894 shortly after his family moved here from Memphis, Tennessee. He was the only African American student in his elementary school. When at Los Angeles Polytechnic High School he expressed an interest in becoming an architect, his guidance counselor tried to discourage him saying that “Negroes will always need doctors and lawyers, but they build neither fine homes nor expensive office buildings.”

41st Annual Wine and Cuisine Tasting Event, Feb 18 The Friends of the Sierra Madre Library have been putting the final details on their 41st Annual Wine and Cuisine Tasting Event scheduled for this Friday, February 18th. Because of the renewed popularity of wine tasting events, it’s easy to understand that the “cuisine tasting” might get lost in the promotion. Included in the evening’s festivities will be their popular silent auction. Of the over 70 items available for auction, successful bidders could take home Rose Bowl and theatre tickets, gourmet dinners, hot air balloon rides, Disneyland and Universal admissions, wine tastings in Temecula and a Paso Robles get-away, a wine fridge, Magic Castle passes and golf green fees. More local options will include lunch with Mayor Joe Mosca, kids party at the fire station, and ride along with a Sierra Madre police officer. Fran Garbaccio, Friend’s volunteer has been busy finalizing the team of participating restaurants who will be represented at the event. “The response this year from local restaurants has been wonderful ,” said Fran.

Deadlines Be Damned

Dorothy's Place

BY DOROTHY DENNE Deadlines are making me crazy. Lately I seem to be having to meet one or another every time I turn around. That makes me feel rushed. Rushing can cause mistakes. Mistakes pop up in my column more often than I like. Sometimes they are typing errors. Sometimes they are usage errors. Both kinds are often generated by having to produce on deadline. Most of those errors would be corrected, given the leisure of time. A fellow writer printed a rules list several years ago. He was a newspaper editor at the time. Though he didn’t claim authorship, he felt others could profit by it. I’ve kept it at hand ever since. I share it with you to prove that, deadlines be damned, I do know the rules. Well, sort of:

• Avoid run-on sentences they are hard to read. • Reserve the apostrophe for it’s proper use and omit it when its not needed. • Do not put statements in the negative form. • Verbs has to agree with their subjects. • No sentence fragments. • Proofread carefully to see if you any words out. • Avoid commas, that are not necessary. • If you reread your work, you will find on rereading that a great deal of repetition can be avoided by rereading and editing. • A writer must not shift your point of view. • Eschew dialect, irregardless. • And don’t start a sentence with a conjunction. • Place pronouns as close as possible, especially in long sentences, as of 10 or more words, to their antecedents. • Write all adverbial forms correct. • Writing carefully, dangling participles must be

avoided. • Steer clear of incorrect forms of verbs that have snuck in the language. • Take the bull by the hand and avoid mixed metaphors. • Avoid trendy locutions that sound flaky. • Never, ever use repetitive redundancies. • Everyone should be careful to use a singular pronoun with singular nouns in their writing. • If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times, resist hyperbole. • Also, avoid awkward or affected alliteration. • Don’t string too many prepositional phrases together unless you are walking through the valley of the shadow of death. • Always pick on the correct idiom. • Avoid overuse of ‘quotation “marks.”” • Last but not least, avoid cliches like the plague; seek viable alternatives.

BY WALLY HAGE It’s no secret that fresh fruits are good for you and that they are loaded with vitamins and minerals so important to a healthy diet. Most people include them regularly in their summer time meal planning when fruits are readily available. However, it is the winter months that fresh fruit is even more important to include in your daily diet. It is the time when you should winterize your diet. As the nights get colder, your chances are much greater of picking up a nasty cold bug or case of the flu. The following is a list of fresh fruits that are considered to be very effective flu fighters. Apples ... Most everyone has heard the proverb rhyme “An apple a day will keeps the doctor away. They are in great supply during the winter months and they provide vitamins A,B,C,E and K . An apple is an excellent source of energy. The health benefits are enormous thus making them one of the most valuable and savored fruits throughout the world. Bananas ... They are easily available throughout the year. They are filled with potassium and are known to protect your heart, quiet a cough, strengthen your bones, and help control blood pressure and block diarrhea. They generously contain vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B9 & C. Fortunately, a banana is one of the most affordable fruit selections in your local market. Berries ... If you have ever had the pleasure of picking berries right from a garden or gathering wild berries in the woods, you already know how wonderful fresh berries are. Most berries are naturally sweet and require little effort to prepare. Just rinse them under water and serve them for a nutritious snack or dessert. One cup of strawberries contains over 100 mg of vitamin C, almost as much as a cup of orange juice. We need vitamin C to help build a healthy immune system. The choices of ber-

ries are numerous each with unique taste and incredible nutritional benefits. Cantaloupe ... The combination of all the B complex vitamins along with the fiber found in cantaloupe make it an exceptionally good fruit for supporting energy. They are filled with vitamin A, C, B6, B-12, and E. Another melon in the melon family of favorites is watermelon, which is another fresh fruit winter flu fighter. A 2-cup serving of watermelon is an excellent source of vitamins A, B6 and C. Figs ... The health benefits of figs can be attributed to the presence of several minerals and vitamins contained in them. They contain vitamin A, B1, B2, calcium, and iron. They are known to help weight loss, lower blood pressure and are good for heart functions. They are not a common fruit generally found in the daily diet but fresh figs can be a tasty and healthy addition. Grapes ... They are one of the most delicious fruits readily available. They are a rich sources of vitamins A, C, B6, in addition to several essential minerals like potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and selenium. Grapes contain flavonoids that are very powerful antioxidants, which can reduce the damage caused by free radicals and they enhance blood flow throughout the body. Grapefruit ... winter is the season when we can enjoy citrus fruits. Abundantly available are sweet grapefruit, bright tangerines, aromatic oranges, and juicy lemons and limes. All are high in vitamin C and they are certain to be a favorite in your winter meal planning. Honey ... Though it is not a fresh fruit it is wonderful as a topping for fruit salads. A tangy dressing of lemon, orange and honey is a great winter flu fighter. The benefits of honey go beyond its sweet taste. Honey is nature’s energy booster, a great immune system build-

Dear Editor: Where is this disdain coming from??? Each Mayor has the privilege to invite someone to speak at his/her breakfast. Our current Mayor is an outspoken Christian and whether you agree with him or not you should give him the courtesy to have a guest speaker for his breakfast. This event is not about the gay lifestyle it is about a prayer breakfast. Why is it that we can no longer have a difference of opinion as a society and agree to disagree?? We must be care-

ful when choosing who is tolerant and who is intolerant. Just because someone doesn’t agree with your opinion what makes your opinion correct???? I will be attending this event to show support for this great country and this community who is not ashamed to have a difference of opinion. We can agree to disagree, Jesus did.

The “Hodge-Podge Show” Opens In Old Town, Pasadena The “Hodge-Podge Show,” featuring an eclectic collection of new artwork by Ed Ushiro, Tasha Kusama, Tim Carey, Sean Chao, and Ming Ong, will be on display from Sunday, February 13 to Thursday, April 7, 2011 at the 24 Hour Gallery. The Opening Reception will be on Sunday, February 13, 2011, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.80 N. Raymond Ave. Pasadena, CA 91103 Guest curated by artist Brian Damitz, the “HodgePodge Show” will showcase a wide variety of artwork, from paintings to sculpture to stained glass. While their media may vary, all of the artwork is united in their modern style, dark themes, and powerful statements. All of the artwork is disquieting and invites interpretation. A figure drawing of a woman is done in an atypical

red. A whimsical sculpture of a man is making fire. A boy with what appears to be a big pimple or even a third eye eats an ice cream bar. A ghostly figure stares back at the viewer with glowing eyes. A naked woman seems frightened by something. Carey, Chao, Kusama, Ong, and Ushiro are all upand-coming artists, who are quickly establishing themselves in the art world. Their work is being shown in respected galleries, receiving critical success, and being acquired for private collections. The 24 Gallery, sponsored by Light Bringer Project, is unique in that it turns a typical gallery inside out, allowing countless general public to view its artwork 24 hours a day in display cases on the busy Holly Street in exciting Old Town, Pasadena.

I am lucky enough to have a career that is more like a lucrative hobby and one of my most favorite aspects is harnessing a new client’s infectious enthusiasm. They come to our gym in search of a fresh start or a weight loss goal or an injury that needs to be worked around and we match their hopes with a plan and a limitless supply of cheerleading. Then, trouble: turning a new lifestyle leaf can be tedious, weight loss takes lots of dedication and working through an injury can be painful. Their initial enthusiasm starts to wane as reality sets in and that is when their personal trainer really needs to pick up their game. Trite cheers like ‘no pain, no gain’ or ‘that’s why it’s called working out and not chilling out” start to sound as hollow as they really are. In order to motivate testy clients, I try to plug them back into the original reason they came into the gym. Don’t lose sight of your goal Knowing what you want your end goal to be is paramount to getting there. Have a visual aid such as an invitation to your high school reunion, a pair of jeans or your ex’s torn up photograph reconfigured

into a Picasso collage. Concentrate on the WHY not the HOW Keeping sight of your goal is important but unless you know why you want to go through all of the work then you are still doing yourself a disservice. My Mum always says that the 99% of the why will take care of the 1% of the how meaning if you channel all of your passion into your desire to achieve the goal the method will take care of itself. I think she was just trying to stop me from continuingly asking ‘are we there yet?’ but it struck a chord with me. Talk to your trainer Miracle workers we are, telepaths we are not, so please talk to us. If I discovered a client quit because they were bored I would be mortified. If you want more variety, if you feel like you have hit a plateau or if you just want to try something completely different just let us know. Contrary to popular belief, we are not just babysitters in lycra, we are here to work for you so make us work! Implement a reward system An inexpensive (also probably inedible) reward system is a fun way to motivate. One of my clients buys herself a Pandora charm for her bracelet for every 10 lbs she loses; another has a chart that she has drawn up with her daughter where she gets a gold star for every 5lbs lost and a silver for every 1lb. She thinks her daughter is more excited than she is about her

weight loss judging by her constant need for a progress report so she can bedazzle the star chart! Make weight loss the warm up act and not the headliner Sometimes watching the scale can be as tedious as walking on a treadmill so choosing an activity you enjoy, such as a group sport, can take your mind off the weight loss and help you reconnect with friends. If you don’t want to play sports, try hiking or cycling where you can get some fresh air and a healthy dose of vitamin D. Mix it up in the gym too: if you usually use the elliptical, try the rowing machine or the stair stepper. If you are used to doing all of your cardio in a single 45 minute block try intervals by stopping every ten minutes and performing low to high impact exercises for 5 minutes before hopping back on your machine.

Rep. Judy Chu Fights Against Republican for Women’s Reproductive Rights Judy Chu, D-CA32, joined fellow House Judiciary Democrats for a joint press conference in opposition to Republican attempts to curtail women’s reproductive rights with H.R. 3, the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.” H.R. 3, sponsored by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), would have a devastating effect on women and families. The bill further narrows the Hyde Amendment’s already limited exceptions for rape and incest—coverage would be limited to women who can

demonstrate “forcible rape” and incest survivors who are minors. The bill would also have the effect of eliminating the market for private insurance coverage for abortion. It would impose enormous tax penalties on Americans and businesses with private insurance plans that include abortion coverage. “Proponents of HR 3 are trying to steal away one of the most personal and private healthcare choices a woman may ever make. Instead they want out of touch elected officials all the way in Washing-

ton to dictate what’s best for her health,” Rep. Chu said. “Every woman in this country has a legal and constitutional right to choose. And because Republicans can’t outlaw choice, they have chosen to tax it away instead. So it’s for American women that I stand here today to strongly oppose HR 3.” “They are usurping the legal rights of American citizens at a time when unemployment is at 9% and the new Republican majority hasn’t put a single job creating bill on the House Floor.”

PCC Center for the Arts Construction Gets Underway Demolition crews have begun dismantling the T and K buildings at Pasadena City College, clearing the way for construction of the highly-anticipated Center for the Arts facility. The demolition work marks the final step in the removal of the two buildings, which sit in the footprint of the 69,000 square-foot Center for the Arts. The process is expected to last six weeks. “The college is taking great care to minimize any negative impacts to the campus and surrounding community during the entirety of the construction process,” said Dr. Rick van Pelt, PCC interim vice president of Administrative Services. “In fact, most of the materials removed from the site will occur on weekends.” “We also estimate that at least 80 percent of the all materials gathered during de-

molition will be recycled,” he added. The capstone of PCC’s 2010 Facilities Master Plan, the Center for the Arts is scheduled to be completed by December 2012. Once constructed, the facility will house both the Performing and Communication Arts and Visual Arts and Media Studies divisions, a 230-seat recital hall, Black Box Theater, classrooms and performance spaces, and the new PCC Art Gallery. Meanwhile, PCC continues to seek philanthropic support to fully outfit the facility. The Center for the Arts Campaign, launched in 2009 and spearheaded by the PCC Foundation, aims to raise $3.5 million from a wide range of interested donors. “Gifts from donors, coupled with voter-approved bond funds, will enable us to move forward expeditiously

with this project and ensure that it will be a first-rate and completely outfitted resource for our students and the community when it opens,” said Dr. Lisa A. Sugimoto, PCC interim vice president of College Advancement. The campaign has naming opportunities available with various giving levels. Two top-tier opportunities remain—the Recital Hall and the Black Box Theater. “Pasadena City College and the PCC Foundation have enjoyed a long-standing partnership with the community,” Sugimoto said. “Now, as we near the campaign’s conclusion, we seek the continued support.” For more information about the Center for the Arts Campaign, please call (626) 585-7065 or visit www.pasadena.edu/centerforthearts.

A Pasadena Tradition March 10 Continued from page 1 March 10 at the Scottish Rite Cathedral. Congressman Mike Honda (D-CA) introduced the Norooz Resolution last spring, stating “Norooz embodies the principle that each individual’s thinking, speaking, and conduct should always be virtuous. It promotes compassion for our fellow human beings irrespective of ethnicity or religion.” The colorful history of Iran will be fêted at the annual celebration of Norooz March 10 at the Scottish Rite Cathedral, 150 North Madison Avenue in Pasadena. Put on each year by local chiropractor Dr. Nazee Rofagha, Norooz celebrates not only the Iranian New Year but the rich culture and diversity of Iran’s peoples. There will be traditional dancing, customary foods and features speaker Jennifer Rose who obtained her PhD from

Columbia University and teaches Zoroastrian Studies at Claremont Graduate University and Stanford University. Rose is a historian of religion. A Zoroastrian is an adherent to Zoroastrianism, the first monotheistic religion that is based on the teachings and philosophies of Zoroaster. Since the Muslim conquest of Persia, Zoroastrianism has become increasingly marginalized, and by the 9th century Iran had become predominantly Islamic. Also noted scholar and composer, Dr. Lloyd Miller will be featured. The reception and art exhibit will be followed by traditional dance to welcome the New Year. The reception is 5PM – 7PM and the program begins at 7. During the 10th century onwards several groups of Zoroastrians immigrated to Western India, where they became known as the Parsis. Today,

Zoroastrianism has its stronghold in India, but Zoroastrianism still survives in Iran proper (where Zoroastrians are now a constitutionally-protected minority). There is also a Zoroastrian diaspora, the largest groups of which are in North America and in the countries of the British Commonwealth. Although Zoroastrianism was once widespread through many of the Iranic peoples, Zoroastrians generally live as scattered minorities in Iran and India today. The honorable Mayor Bill Bogaard will be one of the special guests attending the celebration. The evening is made possible, in part, by the Pasadena Arts Council. The event is FREE but an RSVP is essential due to the event’s popularity. Please call (626) 583-9116 or noroozpasadena@yahoo.com by March 1

cosme had been notified by Rick Davidson, President & CEO of CENTURY 21 Real Estate that CENTURY 21 Village in Sierra Madre combined with CENTURY 21 Ludecke in Arcadia finished the year as number thirteen in the region which

includes the greater southern California area. The two offices (both owned by Mike Ludecke) were the number one Company for CENTURY 21 in the San Gabriel Valley. Bob Popp, CENTURY 21’s Vice President of Business Development was the key speaker at the event. Popp congratulated both Bencosme and Ludecke for their offices success in 2010. He also gave insight to the agents present about the upcoming International CENTURY 21 convention to be held at the Mirage in Las Vegas next month. Nazee Rix was honored once again as the office’s Top Sales Producer for the year. Rix, a Bradbury resident and mother of two has been a consistent top sales producer for the Sierra Madre office. For the first half of the year she posted the highest number of home sales with the highest sales volume. Bencosme credits her success to having the utmost dedication to her business and an understanding of her client’s individual needs. Her expansive knowledge of the real estate market all over Southern California and her honesty in business also play a very important factor in her success in the business so early on in her career. “Nazee receives many favorable reports from her clients on the quality service surveys,” says Bencosme “and much of her business comes from referrals of very satisfied clients.” Emily Duggan ended

2010 as the office’s 2nd Top Producer. Bencosme said that “Emily Duggan is carrying on from 2009 when she was the top producing agent in the office.” “She has been with the office over 20 years and that Emily personally supplements the office’s extensive advertising with her own mailings, internet tools such as virtual tours and her personal monthly ad in the popular “Homes and Land” magazine. Emily specializes in professional marketing, staging and preparing a home for sale. Julie Muttavangkul was also recognized by Bencosme for her sales production. She ended the year as the 3rd Top Producer. Julie was raised Pasadena and Sierra Madre and had a career in the legal field before moving on to owning and operating two successful businesses prior to Real Estate. Julie was recognized as “Rookie of the Year,” after her first year at CENTURY 21 Village and has also earned the CENTURY 21 Quality Service Award for her outstanding service to

her clients. Julie takes pride in every aspect of real estate and her attention to detail and her hard work ethic is practiced in all of her transactions consistently until closing. This year, Mike Waters won the coveted “Rookie of the Year” award for the Sierra Madre office. Waters was with Village less than 30 days when he sold his first home. He is a proud fourth generation Southern California native, holds a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership from Azusa Pacific University, and had a successful seven year career as an Account Executive working in the title insurance field.

The Social Whirl Cinderella to Enchant Audiences of All Ages Temple City High School Department of the Performing Arts presents its 46th annual Broadway musical, an enchanting new production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, fully staged at the historic Mission Playhouse. This timeless enchantment of a magical fairytale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957, starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965, starring Lesley Ann Warren, was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, starring Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her fairy godmother. As adapted for the stage, with warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. This

enchanted edition is based on the 1997 Disney teleplay. Enchanting and magical, Cinderella is a fairytale fit for all ages. Cinderella features such lilting tunes as In My Own Little Corner, The Prince is Giving a Ball, Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful, Ten Minutes Ago, and many more. Performances for Cinderella are Friday and Saturday, March 11 and 12, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, March 13, 2 p.m. at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, 320 S. Mission Dr., San Gabriel. Tickets, now on sale, are $18-$20 for reserved seating, $15 for unreserved seating, and can be obtained by calling Temple City High School Activities Office at (626) 548-5160, Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. (Visa or Master Card accepted with a credit card fee of $3 per order will be added), or by sending a check payable to Temple City High School, Activities Office, Rm. 311, 9501 E. Lemon Ave., Temple City, CA 91780.

The handsome prince, Gabriel Jimenez, and the beautiful Cinderella, Melissa Arellano, will enchant you in the Temple City High School Performing Arts Department’s 46th Broadway musical March 11 and 12 at San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. Performances are 7:30 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Call (626) 548-5160, Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m.

105 Years Young Coordinating Council president, Jodi Little with Bill Clarh holding packages of his “dream cookies,” promoting Arcadia High School’s Guys and Dolls, March 29-April 2. Here is an interesting little human interest story with a sweet plot! It starts with a freshman at Arcadia High School who is trying to promote the Theatre Department’s Guys and Dolls production, March 29-April 2, at the Little Theatre on Campus. Enter the father, Bill Clarh, who has a valuable recipe for cookies from his mother, which he keeps secret, even from his wife! It was my good fortune to sit next to Mr. Clarh at Coordinating Council on February 7, for low and behold, in front of every place

setting were three kinds of large cookies professionally packaged with large promotional ads for Guys and Dolls. I had to taste them and wow, this man had my attention. I cannot remember tasting any better. Really a decadent dream. To think this father went to so much work and planning and to bring it to a group that represented the community, that my friend is ingenuity packaged with love. Guys and Dolls, how could I not. I ate all three cookies.

2011 LA County Academic Decathlon Results Continued from page 1 Decathlon March 12-14 in Sacramento. But because their scores were high enough to qualify as statewide “wild-card” entrants, Keppel and six other teams have also won berths in the state contest. Those six other teams, in order of finish, are: Alhambra HS (41,495), Torrance HS (41,267), Burbank HS (40,605), El Rancho HS of Pico Rivera (40,509), South HS of Torrance (40,002) and West Ranch HS of Stevenson Ranch (38,665). The 2011 LACAD results were announced by L.A. County Interim Superintendent of Schools Jon R. Gundry in ceremonies at the Quiet Cannon Country Club. Nearly 400 students from 45 teams participated in the decathlon that is annually presented by the Los Angeles County Office of Education in partnership with the California Credit Union and USC. The top-scoring individual decathlete overall was Shao Yi Qian of Alhambra, a senior, who tallied 8,514 points (out of a possible 10,000). He was followed by Aaron Cheng, a

senior from West, who totaled 8,328 points, and Lisa Beckman, a junior and also from West, with 8,235 points. The LACAD competition, which this year focused on the study theme of The Great Depression, took place Jan. 29 at El Rancho HS and Feb. 5 at USC’s Galen Center. The LACAD is open to public high schools in the county that are outside of the Los Angeles Unified School District, which holds a separate Academic Decathlon competition and awards ceremony. The Academic Decathlon is a local-county/state/ national honors program designed to promote selfassurance, academic enrichment and teamwork among students from a diversity of academic backgrounds. Decathlon teams are comprised of students from all grade-point averages. Decathletes are challenged to use analytical skills, performance abilities and test-taking and writing aptitude in 10 subjects: Art, Economics, Essay, Interview, Language & Literature, Math, Music, Social Science, Speech

and Super Quiz (Science). The state winner earns a trip to the U.S. Academic Decathlon slated for April 27-30 in Charlotte, NC. 2011 L.A.

T

he creation of the new private school Foothill Oaks Academy in Duarte, California was announced on Friday, February 4, 2011. As of July 1, 2011, Foothill Oaks Academy begins, drawing from the rich heritage of the two private schools, Carden of the Foothills in Monrovia and Anita Oaks School in Duarte, both of which have served the San Gabriel Valley community by providing academic excellence for a total of more than 100 years. The school will provide reasonably priced private school education from preschool through 8th grade, with a focus on individual attention to students, small

class sizes, core curriculum, after school care, and many exciting opportunities for enrichment. Foothill Oaks Academy will kick off an engaging summer school program in 2011, which will be followed by a full academic program starting in September 2011. Both school boards and administrators came together to create Foothill Oaks Academy based on the best methods and style of education gleaned from both schools, with a continued commitment to core values and quality education that have come to define both schools within the community. The combination of the schools will provide a strong future,

as well as improvements in academic programs for Foothill Oaks Academy. Nancy Lopez, the current principal at Anita Oaks School, and Diane Kieffaber, the current principal of Carden of the Foothills School, will codirect Foothill Oaks Academy under the guidance of a board of trustees comprised of representatives from each school. Please visit the Foothill Oaks Academy website at www.foothilloaksacademy. org to learn more about our new school.

“Still, nothing would deter him from addressing the needs of the growing African-American community. He took genuine pride in being able to influence the look and environment of his own community. From churches to mortuaries, youth centers to financial institutions, Williams believed that the visibility of his designs in the community where he lived and socialized was immensely important.”

Recycle Used Oil & Filters! Do you change your car’s motor oil? Did you know that used oil and oil filters are recyclable? Used oil can be re-refined or processed into new motor oil. Currently only 46% of used motor oil is being recycled, which means 20 million gallons may be illegally entering California’s waterways via stormwater systems posing a great risk to the environment. One gallon of used oil can contaminate a million gallons of drinking water; polluting our waterways and threaten fish and aquatic life. Prevent pollution; recycle used motor oil and filters!

Portantino Introduces Bill To Catch Rapists Sacramento: Assemblymember Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) is once again introducing legislation that will help put more rapists behind bars. As reported in the Los Angeles Times, there were over 10,000 unopened rape kits in Los Angeles County in 2008. AB 322 seeks to shed light on the problem of untested rape kit evidence from sexual assaults and help bring rapists to justice. Under AB 322, law enforcement agencies will have 30 days after collecting a rape kit to send it off to an approved lab for testing. The testing has to be completed within six months and a report filed with the Department of Justice. In addition, AB 322 addresses the backlog of untested kits. The bill requires the D.O.J. to establish a timeframe for processing rape kits collected prior to July 1, 2012. In 2008 local law enforcement agencies in California reported statewide arrests in only 23.6% of the forcible rapes that occurred; while New York

City, a jurisdiction that tests every rape kit, reported an arrest rate of about 70% “It’s unconscionable that thousands of rape kits remain unopened and untested across California,” stated Portantino. “Rape kits hold vital evidence that is crucial to a criminal conviction, while the clock is ticking on the statute of limitation for these crimes. It’s frustrating to know that a rapist could be walking free and a victim who suffered is further disrespected because a vital piece of evidence went untested.” This is the third time Assemblymember Portantino has introduced legislation aimed at getting law enforcement agencies to process rape kits in a more timely manner. Despite strong bi-partisan support, former Governor Schwarzenegger twice vetoed earlier efforts. Portantino is hoping that this time with a new Governor and new language, the result will be different. The Rape, Abuse and Incest Network reports that 1 in 6 women and 1 in 33 men will be sexually as-

saulted in their lifetimes, but only 6% of rapists will ever spend a day in jail. Rape kits hold potentially crucial information from the crime scene. DNA evidence from the kits is used to compare samples from known felons in State and Federal databases. If you don’t process the evidence, you can’t check it against the database. “I introduced this bill to protect the women and children in our communities by making sure that our law enforcement agencies are doing all they can to provide justice for the victims of these horrible crimes,” explained Portantino. “As we’ve seen over and over again in news reports, evidence from rape kits sits untested in police lockers throughout the state. And, while police and sheriff’s departments in Los Angeles have made strides in processing some 10,000 backlogged kits, this bill will ensure that in the future, rape kits are opened and processed in a timely manner.”

You May Benefit From New Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan Do you find it hard to obtain health insurance due to pre-existing conditions? You may be eligible for the new Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan — a program for people who have a pre-existing medical condition and have been without health insurance coverage for at least six months. People with pre-existing conditions face daunting challenges — and high costs — when they shop for health

insurance. This new plan covers physician and hospital services and prescription drugs. Premiums vary by state. Annual out-of-pocket expenses for enrollees are capped. Details about the program and how to apply may vary depending on what State you live in. In some states, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, with the help of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management and the U.S.

Department of Agriculture’s National Finance Center, will run the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan; other States have asked to run the program themselves. Regardless of which State you live in, to qualify for the program you must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident, and you must have been uninsured for at least six months. In addition, you must have a pre-existing condition or have been denied

insurance coverage because of a medical condition. For more information, call the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan toll-free at 1-866-717-5826 (TTY 1-866561-1604) between the hours of 8 a.m. and 11 p.m. Eastern Time. Or visit www.pcip.gov and select “Find Your State” to learn about eligibility and how to apply.

From Seed to Skillet: Vegetable Gardening with Jimmy Williams and Susan Heeger Meet the Celebrated Urban Farmer and Garden Writer in Person The Garden Conservancy and the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden are pleased to present Jimmy Williams and Susan Heeger, authors of the new book From Seed to Skillet: A Guide to Growing, Tending, Harvesting, and Cooking Up Fresh Healthy Food to Share with People You Love. Shoppers at Los Angeles farmers’ markets may be familiar with Jimmy Williams’ heirloom vegetable seedlings; now they can learn about the story behind the produce—and behind the producer. On Saturday, February 26 at the Arboretum, Susan and Jimmy will share some of the secrets to garden planning, creating healthy soil, raising strong, productive plants, saving seeds, and enjoying the harvest with family and friends. They will present an illustrated talk, which will be followed by a book signing and an optional lunch. Acclaimed caterer Kitchen for Exploring Foods will prepare a special boxed lunch from the Williams family’s recipes featured in From Seed to Skillet: Hoppin’ John, Sweet Potato Biscuit, Sweet-Pepper Dip and Crudites. A blondie and drink are also included.

Tables will be set up in the Arboretum’s beautiful Celebration Garden. Jimmy learned all about vegetable gardening at the knee of his grandmother, a South Carolina native from a traditional Gullah community. Susan, a garden writer and editor, has been growing vegetables at home for more than ten years. The two have created a personal, beautifully illustrated garden manual aimed at helping all gardeners, from beginners to experts, grow edibles more successfully. As Michael Pollan writes, “As Americans head back to the kitchen garden in record numbers, they soon find themselves in need of a guiding hand and a trusted coach. Jimmy Williams and Susan Heeger are as fine a coaching team as a vegetable gardener could wish for.” From Seed to Skillet was named one of Amazon. com’s “Best Books of 2010” in the Home & Garden category.

Adam Schiff (D-CA) released the following statement about the attack on CBS Chief Foreign Correspondent Lara Logan, who was sexually assaulted and beaten in Cairo on Friday, while covering rallies marking the resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak: “I am deeply alarmed and saddened by the news that CBS chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan, who was covering the reaction to Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s resignation in Tahrir Square on Friday, Feb. 11, was separated from her crew by a mob of more than 200 people and severely sexually assaulted. “Fortunately, a group of Egyptian woman and soldiers ultimately rescued her, and she is now recovering after being hospitalized in Washington, DC. However, the assault is a reminder of the abuse and harassment

that many journalists face across the globe. According to Reporters Without Borders, five reporters have already been killed in 2011, and 152 are behind bars. Since 1992, 850 reporters have been killed around the world. “Reporting is a dangerous business and female correspondents can be much more vulnerable during chaotic events. Logan has courageously dedicated herself to covering battlefields for nearly 20 years. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family as she recovers.” Rep. Schiff is founder and Co-Chair of the Congressional Caucus for Freedom of the Press. The bipartisan bicameral caucus was founded in May 2006, and aims to advance press freedom around the world by creating a forum to combat and condemn media censorship and the persecution of journalists around the world.
