Sierra Madre Councilwoman MacGillivray Calls State Budget “Anarchy” Despite the mostly upbeat reorganization of City Council Tuesday, Sierra Madre Councilmember MaryAnn MacGillivray talked tough and said she wasn’t sure how the “ State Anarchy” would affect Sierra Madre…referring of course to Governor Brown’s budget cuts. City’s across the San Gabriel Valley have been particularly worried about Redevelopment Agency monies and are attempting to protect those monies from state hands. MaryAnn MacGillivray‘s comments came as a surprise to some in the audience who evidently are not of the same belief as the MacGillivray.

No further detail were immediately available.

John Buchanan Appointed Los Fabulocos and Delgado Bros Celebrate Cinco de Mayor of Sierra Madre Mayo Sunday, May 1 During Reorganization Former Mayor Joe Mosca handed over the Mayoral duties of the city to John Buchanan who was selected Mayor of Sierra Madre, for the second time at Tuesday’s reorganization at City Hall. Josh Moran was unanimously selected as Mayor Pro Tem. Mosca thanked his family for their support especially his partner, Matt Bosse and sons Garrett (3 yrs) and the new born Devan . He also thanked John Buchanan for his guidance and friendship. Mosca said, “After several years on the City Council he still gives 100 percent. He is very committed,” In thanking other councilmembers, Mosca also thanked the Sierra Madre community for their support. Mosca cited the accomplishments of the Council during his tenure as Mayor and again said what an hon-

or it was to serve the city. When Buchanan took the Mayor’s seat he quipped that he would not make a terribly long speech. “There’s but one reason anyone should seek and hold elected office...that is to do good,” Buchanan said. “Being a council member or mayor… is a chance to do good,” he said. Buchanan noted the importance of Sierra Madre remaining a “full service city”. Harsh critics of Buchanan and Mosca, like local blogger John Crawford, attacked Mayor Buchanan who Crawford claims “gave a big push for large expansive government last evening, though it was obvious that wasn’t all of his agenda” and also said Joe Mosca fans who put him “into power a year ago didn’t bother to show up

Pasadena Fire Station 39 to be Vacated As Result of Seismic Stability Studies Built in 1949, Pasadena Fire Station #39, located at 50 Avenue 64, will be vacated effective Wednesday, April 26, 2011. This station currently houses four Fire Department safety members per shift (three shifts) and one Fire Engine. As part of the Fire Department’s 2005-2010 Strategic Plan, an evaluation of Fire Department facilities was identified to anticipate the needs of a continuously growing population and to improve the Department’s existing aging infrastructure. Analysis of all eight Fire Stations for building and site areas, services performed, functional efficiencies, structural integrity and aesthetic conditions were conducted. The study prioritized categories as related to the life and safety of the crew, the buildings structural integrity and the operational needs of the Department.

Of the Department’s eight Fire Stations, Station #39 was identified for potential structural failure if subjected to significant seismic loads. Station #39’s construction consists of masonry bearing walls, wood frame floor and a wood framed roof. The report states, in part, “There is significant risk of structural failure of the 2 ½” steel columns supporting the lintel in masonry opening. This portion of the second floor is in danger of collapse when subjected to seismic loading. Safety of the fire crew and protection of equipment is paramount and should be addressed without delay.” In addition, the study found that there is no practical manner in which to resolve Station #39’s structural deficiencies. “Firefighter safety is of utmost concern and this closure is of a critical, time sensitive nature so as to not

jeopardize the crew and apparatus. A large seismic event is imminent, even though we can’t predict when it will occur. As first responders, our Firefighters need to get to an emergency in a timely manner. According to this report, in the case of a significant earthquake the crew members assigned to Station #39 could very well need rescue themselves. We recognize that we cannot afford to wait to take action,” states Dennis J. Downs, Fire Chief. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) sites specific data that indicates probable seismic accelerations. This data was utilized to determine design standards to withstand seismic loads, as outlined in the California Building Code as “Essential Service Facilities.” All new Fire Stations built in California

BY DOROTHY DENNE When I used to complain that I didn’t have time to get all my chores done, my father-in-law would always remind me, “That’s all right Dorothy, you don’t want to finish your chores. When they are done, so are you.” He finished his chores in 1978. I miss him still and think of him often. We would sometimes laugh together at things not everyone found laughable. I received a photocopy today of a cartoon that I know would have evoked a chuckle from him. It shows a harried, frazzled looking woman with crossed eyes and turned down mouth. The side caption reads, “God put me on Earth to accomplish a certain

number of things...right now I’m so far behind I will never die.” He would approve of that. I love cartoons. Perhaps that is part of why I am behind. I’m always taking time to cut one out to send to someone or running out to copy the one that someone sent to me, then send it on to others. That usually calls for more time to sit down and write a little note to update our lives. I consider that as time well spent, but it does mean delaying some other chores. Now and then I reach that point of being behind which calls for making lists and prioritizing. I make a column for things that Must be done right away, one for things that Should be done soon and one for things to do Whenever I get to them. The

columns are all rather long. This morning a friend called and wanted to do something really fun and relaxing but definitely time consuming. I groaned and looked at my lists: meetings to attend, columns to write, bills to pay, cleaning to do, errands to run, a button to sew, a hem to repair, calls to make, and more. I saw myself as the frazzled gal in the cartoon. I began to shift jobs from one column to the other. Finally the Must Do column was quite manageable, the Should Do produced a fleeting moment of guilt and the When I Get To It just kept growing. I called my friend back and said I’ll meet her at noon. My father-in-law was right. I’m in no hurry to get my chores done.

Letter to the Editor Dear Mr. Peters I have been commissioned to compile a book entitled CRITICAL (m)ASS - a collection of critical reviews and accompanying anecdotes. Some time ago, my editor decided that as soon as find a new and interesting review, I ought to write the author, so that the collection may be made up of both the original review and the successive correspondence. First, thank you for your thoughtful review. Your reaction was complimentary and interesting. While I did play this role for quite a few years, I have largely moved on to Chopin, Beethoven, Bernstein, among other things characters that have wonderfully rich music and lives, as did Gershwin. The few things that I wish to address regarding your review have to do with the suggestion of “hypothesis” regarding Porgy and Bess. George Gershwin often stated (as did I, in character) that one never remembers the good reviews - it’s the negative ones that stay. Coupled with the fact that Porgy lost its entire investment, closed after only 132 performances in New York, was ravaged by the more well known (not necessarily better) critics, and in fact led Gershwin to respond in writing with a letter

to the press, expressing both anger and pain while explaining his choices, leads me to believe that as presented, it’s no “hypothesis.” It’s how we know he responded to what actually happened. While it is unnecessary to bring forth friends’ reports of Gershwin at the time (ie: depressed, seen crying at the back of the theatre, questioning his own abilities and so on) - it is necessary to express Gershwin’s own reaction, as I did. The good reviews were meaningless to him, because the critical support that he wanted were from individuals from whom, that support didn’t come. I also want to add, as I am certain that you know, Isaac Goldberg had a somewhat personal relationship with Gershwin, and in reading his book, one finds many rose colored reports of many events. He has long been debunked by Gershwin-ites as a largely “unreliable” source. With regard to the performance of the Rhapsody, I think I am quite in agreement with you on the result, but not the reason for what appears in the audience to be a lack of clarity. The auditorium, while very kind to the spoken voice, and somewhat to the singing voice, is not at all structured to be kind to the piano. There is practically no “return” and while not en-

tirely dry, there just isn’t that wonderful dome that I have experienced when I played at Carnegie Hall, at Disney, or my very favorite in the whole world - the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. So, I find myself trying options - play lighter, and hope the performance reads, play heavier, knowing it will read but in a very heavy handed way, a more romantic approach, a punchier approach - depends on the evening. Alas, this is one the problems with playing a concert work in concert style, but not in a hall suited to the spoken and sung voice, and not to the very delicate craft of instrumental music. As Horowitz said with his marvelous accent “Give me one million dollars, and still I don’t play in bad acoustic.” It makes for interesting choices, in particular because this is a theatre piece. All this said, I am glad you attended, and again, thank you for your thoughtful and supportive report. Perhaps with the Chopin and Beethoven pieces, (the piano work of which is something I relish and enjoy a great deal) I’ll better understand the local acoustics.

Lucky Baldwins Trappiste Pub and Cafe Grand Opening of East Pasadena Pub Slated for May 6 - 7

“He was a wise man who invented beer”- Plato Under the ownership of British subjects David Farnworth and Peggy Simonian, Lucky Baldwin’s in old Pasadena poured their very first pint July 1, 1996. It wasn’t long before word got around that there was a good “English Pub” in Pasadena complete with character and a feel of the UK. Lucky Baldwin’s, complete with the delirious dry wit of an Englishman born in Carlisle. Carlisle is known as the last town in England before Scotland, and sometimes the last town in Scotland before England, depending on with whom you’re sharing a pint of the amber nectar. Farnworth tells me, logically enough, that he lived in Farnworth which is located within the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton in Greater Manchester which might account for his thick accent, and Northern wit and repartee. I’m not sure if he was pulling my leg - sometimes you never know with us Brits… we love to “take the mickey”. Oh well, it makes for a good story! They are also known for the great English breakfasts served up daily from 8 a.m. If you’ve not experienced a true British breakfast, you’re in for a treat! You can have tea with your breakfast or the very good and popular Peets Coffee which they proudly serve. And since the place is family friendly, and there is also a kids’ menu. What sets Lucky Balwin’s apart from the madding crowd of bars, sports bars and gastropubs in the Los Angeles area is simply the selection of great beers, particularly Belgian beers, and the corresponding beer festivals that have become so

mined beer aficionado, Farnworth literally travelled the world to find what he thinks are the best of the very best beers. In 2005, Farnworth and Simonian jumped at an opportunity to open a Sierra Madre Lucky Baldwin’s that formerly housed the Sierra Madre Brewing Company 2. That location has developed a very loyal following and is known as Lucky Baldwins Delirium. Lucky Baldwin’s third incarnation was formerly home the popular and cozy Brits Fish and Chips which was owned and operated by another popular dry wit-

Brits was forced to close its doors. Many a loyal Brits patron pops in to Lucky Baldins Trappiste, however, to see the transformation, which is significant. It is easy to see why Lucky Baldwins customers get into Belgian beer. “The flavors are so different,” Farnworth said. “They’re fascinating. And a lot of them are high in alcohol. “In fact this week, the High Alcohol Beer Festival (which ends on Sunday) boast some beers at 11%. When you consider the average beer is 5% or less, that is one bold “Alesmith old Knumbskull”: that’s actuall the name of one of Farn-

worth’s selections. Lucky Baldwins is celebrating its Trilogy with the grand opening Saturday and Sunday May 6 &7 with $3 on selected pints; a special menu feauring British favorites for only $7 ( fish and chips, Bangers and Mash, Cottage Pie as well as traditional meat pies. They will also be featuring 15 beers by Sierra Nevada of which many are usually only available at the Sierra Nevada Brewery. British native, Neale Aslett of Chichester in West Sussex, manages the new location with his own unique flair for the understatement. He and his staff of able bodied young men and women manage to keep the customers happy with not only fast and friendly service but the occasional quip that’ll make you realize why it’s fun to go out for a pint at a unique pub like Lucky Baldwins. “It’s not a bar, its an adventure!” said local resident Dave Peterson who was instrumental in convincing Pasadena to extend the opening hours of the new Lucky Baldwins. Peterson and a dedicated group of people in the East Pasadena have been attempting to build up the business east of PCC and felt it wasn’t Pasadena’s right to determine a curfew. Up until last week, the pub had to close at 10p.m. To the delight of their customers and relief of the owners, Lucky Baldwins has a little more time to entice residents of the area. Lucky Baldwins Trappiste is located at 1770 E Colorado Blvd in Pasadena. Lucky Baldwins Deliriums located at 21 Kersting Court, Sierra Madre and the original at 17 S. Raymond in Pasadena.

MacGillivray Uses word “Anarchy” to describe State Cuts Continued from page 1 Taking further action to save taxpayer dollars and cut government waste, Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. issued a sweeping Executive Order Tuesday to halt state employee travel that is not mission-critical. This Executive Order comes one week after the Governor ordered state agencies and departments to recover millions of dollars in uncollected salary and travel advances.“Our fiscal challenges demand that we take a much closer look at how taxpayer dollars are being spent within state government,” Brown said. “Now is not the time to attend conferences, travel to meetings or take out-ofstate field trips and this Executive Order puts an end to it.”Under the Governor’s Executive Order, no travel is permitted – either in-state or out-of-state – unless it is mission-critical or there is no cost to the state. All in-state mission-critical travel must be approved by agency secretaries or department directors who do not report to an agency secretary and all out-of-state travel must

be approved by the Governor’s office. Permitted travel must be directly related to enforcement responsibilities, audits, revenue collection or other duties required by statute, contract or executive directive. Travel to attend conferences, networking opportunities, professional development courses, continuing education classes, meetings that can be conducted by video or teleconference or other non-essential events will not be permitted or paid for by the state. All agencies and departments must submit outof-state travel requests for the next fiscal year directly to the Governor’s office by May 6. In the past, agencies and departments have been allowed to switch previously approved trips with new trips during the fiscal year. The Governor’s Executive Order ends this practice. Out-of-state travel requests must also document the purpose of the trip and why it is mission-critical, the destination and length of the trip, the projected cost and

source of funding, the number of travelers and the role of each individual, the benefit to the state, the impact if the trip is denied, whether the goal of the trip can be met in a less costly manner and whether a traveler’s absence will interfere with regularly assigned duties. This Executive Order is part of the Governor’s efforts to save money this fiscal year and to cut millions in operational costs next fiscal year. Since taking office, Governor Brown has cut spending in his own office by 25 percent and ordered state agencies and departments to: •Recover millions of dollars in uncollected salary and travel advances; •Stop spending taxpayer dollars on free giveaway and gift items; •Cut state cell phones and the passenger vehicle fleet in half; and •Freeze hiring across state government.

Always a proud and heart warming experience, the annual public school luncheon held at the Masonic Center on April 21st continues to impress. Jim Helms, Lodge Master, welcomed guests. The main thrust is to showcase the excellence in the Arcadia schools from teachers to office employees, etc., and to introduce the National Merit Scholarship winners. This year, Arcadia had 33 , an amazing percentage considering out of one million entrants, the process of elimination comes down to only 8,000 finalists nationwide. I was pleased to see the drama teacher at A.H.A., Steven Volpe, chosen as one of the certificated recipients. The outstanding results of the musical Guys and Dolls last month still linger.

The Social Whirl Monrovia League Monrovia League members have been busy since their end of the year Christmas party. Monthly meetings have been held at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. The program chairmen, Enid Ottem and Donna Stueck have had interesting and informative programs. January 18, Dr. George Nalbach, Family Service Associate Executive Director,

informed them of some of the different programs from Family Service. Since 1951, Santa Anita Family Service has been providing local families with counseling programs, child abuse treatment and prevention programs, women’s support groups, substance abuse and domestic violence programs, family preservation and support programs and services for seniors.

Hostesses wee: Henriette Luszeck, Hilda Medina, Dorothy Mosley and Patricia Bade. On February 15, Bonnie, from the Wizard of Bras, was interesting and informative; she is an authority on fitting bras and also happens to be the mother of the Whistling Diva, Carole Anne Kaufman, named best female adult whistler at the convention on April 23-25 in Louisburg, NC.

Hostesses were Joan Williams, Ann Von der Ahe and Henriette Luszeck. March 15 was the annual Spring Salad Buffet, and the ladies, as usual, outdid themselves with the many different and delicious salads. President Ann Von der Ahe will be hosting their annual membership tea may 17th at her Oaklawn Rd. home.

It was a fun day with “The Cross Town Cowboys” music and great hot pulled pork sandwiches. The event marked the 75th anniversary of the Adams Pack Station at Chantry Flats.

What goes on behind the scenes at the annual Pasadena Rose Parade? Have you ever wondered who chooses the theme, the bands, and the float designs? The perfect person to answer these questions and any others is prominent Arcadia resident David Hu, a 23-year member of the Tournament of Roses Association, has assured the A.A.U.W. that he will present a program to them “that is informative and not full of bor-

ing statistics.” He welcomes questions from the audience. David Hu will speak to the group at its meeting on Monday, May 9, at the Church of the Good Shepherd’s Jordan Hall, 400 W. Duarte Rd., Arcadia, (SW corner of Duarte Road and Holly Avenue). Socializing and refreshments begin at 6:30 p.m. with program to follow at 7 p.m. The public is invited to this free meeting.

One Night Only ‘Guys and Dolls' Live on Stage May 7th The original production opened on Broadway November 24, 1950 and ran for 1,200 performances. A 1976 revival, featuring Robert Guillaume and an all-black case, ran for 239 performances, and the hit 1992 revival with Peter Gallagher, Nathan Lane and Faith Prince ran almost as long as the original. The film version, starring Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, Frank Sinatra and Vivian Blaine (recreating her role as Adelaide), had the highest box office gross of 1955. Guys and Dolls won eight Tony Awards (including music and lyrics) and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. The 1992 production won a a Tony for Best Revival, and its cast album was awarded the Grammy. It all begins with a bet. Nathan Detroit bets high rolling gambler Sky Masterson that Sky cannot persuade Save-A-Soul Missionary Sis-

ter Sarah Brown to accompany him on a trip to Cuba. While the worldly Sky works his charms on a wary Sarah, Nathan is doing his best to stay outside the matrimonial clutches of his long suffering fiancée, Miss Adelaide. Guys and Dolls is a fable about what happens to gambling men and the women who long to tame them. Set in the colorful world of New York City in the mid 20th century, the romantic and funny Guys and Dolls is populated with gangsters and gamblers, missionary dolls and scantily clad showgirls, and one of the great musical scores in the history of American theatre. Call (626) 282-1440 for tickets. Starts at 8 p.m. at San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. This is a fully staged, choreographed show with a top notch cast and the Richard Allen orchestra.

ing with his hands. He especially loved restoring old grandfather clocks and cars, and there were always cars and clocks in various stages of repair in the garage. He knew everything about steam engines and finally, in retirement, achieved his dream of building a garage-sized model railroad. In his later years, Bill was cared for by Karen and Tom Woodward, his wife’s daughter and son-in-law. Bill is survived by his wife, Mary, and five children from his first marriage – Bette Solomon (Sierra Madre), Susie Galloway (Grand Junction, CO), Bill Sheppard (Pasadena), Robyn Grimes (Grand Junction, CO) and Melissa Weber (Monrovia).

The condition of the club’s exterior was “four shades of beige because of various graffiti removals over the years” according to Wilson. The landscaping was outdated and not water conservation friendly. The interior hadn't been touched in many years.. Thanks to several individuals and local groups, the Boys and Girls blub now has fresh, lively paint inside and out and fresh landscape that is primarily California native and other drought resistant plants. “It was a true community effort to make all this happen” said Wilson when a group of community leaders met up and visited the club

John Buchanan, Mayor of Sierra Madre Continued from page 1

The Arcadia City Council voted Wednesday night to appoint Councilman Gary Kovacic as mayor and Councilman Bob Harbicht as mayor pro-tem. Kovacic, who most recently served as mayor pro-tem, is replacing Councilman Peter Amundson as mayor. Kovacic is no stranger to the position of Mayor. The council elects a new mayor every year during an annual reorganization meeting. Gary Kovacic has beed dubbed Mr. Arcadia by many in the community for his numerous civic contributions. He is also the founder of the annual Law Day which is a free legal advice forum held each year at Arcadia Library.

tonight. Maybe they stayed home so they could watch the cable news coverage of the impending royal wedding. Or perhaps they were just getting drunk.” Interesting, albeit a grossly inaccurate observation. Crawford went on to affront and debase the outgoing Mayor and newly selected Mayor as only Crawford and his anonymous disciples can. He went on to say: “But whatever the reason, there was very little

energy in the room. Instead you might have thought you were attending one of Bruce Inman’s demonstrations on how pipes get rusty. Or the most interesting ways to dry paint.” Well Mr. Crawford, again, interesting armchair observation but again a grossly inaccurate in content. Interestingly enough, although hardly surprising,

‘Once Upon A Mattress’ Set Antonovich Praises Commissioner Selig’s Appointment of Former President of for May Production Texas Rangers to Monitor Dodgers BY SUSAN MOTANDER The Monrovia High School Drama Department is staging the Once Upon A Mattress as its Spring Musical. The production is based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea and was originally produced on Broadway with Carol Burnett in the lead. The MHS production will be given in the Clifton Middle School Auditorium on Palm between Ivy and Canyon. The dates of the production are May 5. 6 and 7, then again on May 12, 13 and 14. All the presentations will begin at 7:30 p.m. and costs just $10 per person. The Monrovia High School Performing Arts Center cannot yet be used as the state has yet to approve the criteria for the new fire safe curtain for that auditorium. The curtain cannot even be ordered until that approval. The story centers on a devious queen and her mute husband the king, their unmarried son and various members of the court. No one in the kingdom can marry until the prince does and the queen manages to veto every potential bride. Unfortunately Sir Harry has fallen in love with Lady Larkin, and circumstances being as they are, the Lady finds herself pregnant. However, it true fairy tale style, there is pleasant ending and everyone lives happily ever after (with the

possible exception of that devious queen). The cast includes: Princess Winnifred the Woebegone aka Fred: Amy Segal Devious Queen Aggravain: Kristen Fedderoff King Sextimus the Silent: Eddie Olivares Prince Dauntless the Drab: Andrew Biggs Sir Harry: Steven Fedderoff Lady Larken: Paige Elwell

“I commend Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig’s appointment of Thomas Schieffer as the monitor of the Los Angeles Dodgers franchise,” said Los Angeles County Mayor Michael D. Antonovich, who has

been critical of the current Dodger leadership. “With his experience and leadership as a public servant and former president of the Texas Rangers, Thomas Schieffer will be a transformative figure

in restoring the traditional Dodger legacy of integrity and providing a familyfriendly environment that will be a welcome development for Dodger fans across Los Angeles County.”

safety. The wounds were not severe. He was treated by Monrovia Fire Department Paramedics and taken to a hospital, where he will be held for mental evaluation. Grand Theft Auto / Vehicle Recovered On April 16 at 5:00 p.m., an officer responded to the report of a suspicious vehicle in an alley in the 400 block of East Olive. It was determined to have been taken from behind a nearby restaurant. The steering column was damaged and the pink slip and registration were taken, as well as the stereo. The victim did not yet know his car had been stolen. Assault with a Deadly Weapon - Suspect Arrested On April 19 at 6:48 p.m., two male subjects were arguing, when a third subject walked up and struck one of the subjects on the head with a shovel. The victim managed to run away and called police. Officers responded and located the suspect and he was arrested. Monrovia Fire Department paramedics responded and treated the victim, who was taken to a hospital by ambulance. Two other subjects were present, but stated they did not see anything. The investigation is continuing. Shoplifting / Possession of a Controlled Substance - Suspect Arrested On April 20 at 7:47 p.m., officers responded to a business in the 700 block of East Huntington regarding two subjects being detained for shoplifting. While investigating, officers learned that one of the subjects being detained had methamphetamine in her vehicle. Officers retrieved the substance and arrested her for shoplifting and for possession of a controlled substance.

Battery On April 20 at 8:54 p.m., officers were dispatched to a residence in the 100 block of North Primrose regarding a fight in progress. The suspect had fled the location in a red truck. The Foothill Air Support Team helicopter was in the area and located the vehicle on Huntington, heading toward the city of Duarte. The driver was detained by officers in front of his home and a field show up was conducted. The suspect was identified and arrested. Apparently the suspect was leaving his parents’ home when the victim called the suspect a thief. The suspect approached the victim and threw him on the ground.

Open Carry Proponents take it to the Streets Continued from page 1 Gene McCarthy, President of South Bay Open Carry said “If Portantino’s bill passes it will take away the only way you or I can defend ourselves,” McCarthy, who a brief period with LAPD claimed that those victims of crime are the first responders and the police are the second responders, Portantino proposed the bill, which passed the state Assembly’s Public Safety Committee on April 12. It could hit the floor of the Assembly for a vote by May, officials said. “What this bill says, you should not be on a street corner of main street California packing your weapon,” Portantino said. “You don’t need to pack your gun to buy a cheeseburger.” California State Assemblymember Anthony J. Portantino (D-La Canada Flintridge) introduced the bill which would make it a crime to openly carry an unloaded handgun – AB 144. Proponents of the practice of openly carrying handguns in public voiced their firm belief in citizens’ “God-given right” to self defense in opposition to this bill Thursday in Pasadena. In a phone interview on Wednesday, Portantino said that he feels that shoppers and those enjoying downtown life would rather not see weapons. “I’m dissapointed about the rhetoric [regarding AB144]” Portantino said. “The next step is to push forward and get this bill through. Do what law abiding citizens and law enforcement across California wants.” Portantino was disturbed by some comments posted on the California Open Carry Movement Facebook page in reaction to his bill as well as the “wanted” poster. “Guns on the hips belonged in the wild west days perhaps but not in Paseo Colorado.”Portantino said. The Los Angeles chapter of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and other groups countered the open carry proponents with their own protest against the groups’ actions. A prayer circle

hoped for resolution and peacful end to the two sides of the issue. This bill (AB 144) would establish an exemption to the offense for transportation of a firearm between certain areas where the firearm may be carried concealed, or loaded, or openly carried unloaded, as specified. Existing law, subject to certain exceptions, makes it an offense to carry a loaded firearm on the person or in a vehicle while in any public place or on any public street in an incorporated city or in any public place or on any public street in a prohibited area of unincorporated territory. The bill would, subject to exceptions, make it a misdemeanor to openly carry an unloaded handgun on the person in specified public areas. By creating a new offense, AB 144 would impose a state-mandated local program as

well as making conforming and non-substantive technical changes. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. We requested information from the group SBOC and received the following email: “We are a Second Amendment organization committed to defending ourselves and our families. We will not be intimidated by the Brady Campaign or any other left wing group seeking to take away our God given right to self defense. Suzanne Verge, president of the Brady Campaign Los Angeles Chapter, said she was dissapointed with the South Bay’s position and personal attacks on Portantino.
