Strike Over a Thousand Women Imagine the Royal Crown Not an 2012 Rose Queen Tryouts were held this Saturday in the Search for the Next Queen and Court Option for Grocery Workers The union representing 62,000 grocery workers and the owners of Ralphs, Vons and Albertsons supermarkets announced Monday they have reached a tentative agreement, averting a threatened strike. The agreement is set for a ratification vote by union members later this week. Southern California’s three largest supermarket chains released a joint statement that sketches out the basics of the tentative contract. “We are pleased to have reached a tentative settlement agreement with the union that continues to preserve good wages, secure pensions and access to quality, affordable health care while allowing us to be competitive in the marketplace,” the statement said. “We appreciate the hard work, support and patience that many different people have shown

Governor Brown Vows to Pursue Constitutional Protection for Public Safety Realignment Funding Speaking to more than 500 local government and law enforcement leaders at a statewide conference on public safety realignment, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today vowed to do “whatever it takes” to provide constitutional protection for realignment funding. “I’m not leaving Sacramento until we get a constitutional guarantee to protect law enforcement and the whole realignment process,” Governor Brown said. “We will do whatever it takes to get the constitutional

protection because public safety is the number one responsibility of government. I recognize that and I want to work with you to achieve it.”  In April, Governor Brown signed AB 109, a landmark law that realigns certain responsibilities for lower level offenders and parolees from state to local jurisdictions. By giving local law enforcement the tools to manage offenders in smarter and cost-effective

Some Things Tick Me Off

Letter to the Editor “Citrus Rocks!” and Makes Monrovia Proud As Monrovia’s representative to the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees, I am aware of the challenges students currently face in their quest to earn a college education; however, their “can do” spirit and stellar achievements inspire me. I am pleased, therefore, to share some of the college’s brilliant accomplishments and contributions to the community. In 1916, at the end of Citrus Junior College’s first year, the student writers of the La Palma yearbook offered the following assessment of students who attended the new college. “The junior college is a group of enthusiastic young people. Their influence for advanced education and their broader views cannot fail to be felt throughout this valley.” Nearly a century later, in 2011, the prevailing opinion about Citrus College students is more succinct, yet every bit as positive: “Citrus Rocks!” Not only is “Citrus Rocks” a statement of fact, it is also a publication that features the college’s recent accomplishments, awards

and activities. It can be accessed from the home page of the college website, www.citruscollege. edu. Citrus College and the Monrovia Unified School District (MUSD) have formed an outstanding partnership that provides opportunities for students to excel academically and prepare for college-level courses. An agreement between the governing boards of both institutions enables instructional personnel to align the career/technical preparation classes offered through MUSD and Citrus College. This process enables students to make a smooth transition from high school to the college and pursue a course of study that will prepare them to enter the workforce or transfer to a four-year college. Monrovia students visit Citrus College to participate in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Program workshops where they conduct experiments and learn about careers in the STEM fields. In addition, Citrus College students continue their longtime involvement as

tutors in Duke Freyermuth’s Pro Active Tutoring Program and the district’s Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID ) Program. Students and visitors entering the college from Citrus Avenue now have a beautiful point of entry, the new Student Services Building. On September 13, members of the community joined students, faculty and staff for a festive dedication program, “It’s All about Our Students!” The 54,450 square-foot building provides access to key student support services departments such as Admissions and Records, Financial Aid, Counseling, School Relations and Outreach, the Career/Transfer Center and more. The building was partially funded (80 percent) by the Measure G Bond, which Citrus Community College District voters passed in 2004. I would also like to congratulate several Citrus College students from Monrovia on their accomplishments during the past year. Fine and Performing Arts Program student Kohei Ando is one of the college’s Top 100 students. In addition, nine students from Monrovia who received scholarships from the Citrus College Foundation and the Associated Students of Citrus College were honored at the college’s recent Scholarship Reception: Omari Cass, Brian Enzenauer, Rebecca Galvan, Tanya Jilkevorkian, Frank Licher, David Smith, Erin Swanson, Sinakilae Uhamaka and Jessica Williams. As always, it is an honor to represent the Monrovia community as a Citrus College board member. Thank you for your continued interest and support of Citrus College. Mrs. Joanne Montgomery, vice president, Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees

Dorothy's Place BY DOROTHY DENNE     I love life, it’s basically great.  But, I have to admit, I also enjoy a certain amount of curmudgeonry.  My glasses are kind of rose colored but I’m not soppy.  Some things just really tick me off.     I hate it when I go in a public restroom and the person before me has left that paper toilet seat cover on the seat.  How about the newspaper vending machine that takes my money but won’t let me lift the lid?  Or, the women in the mall with the strollers that seem to have a homing device aimed directly at my heels?     If you want to see me in a real snit, come around when the pharmacy has given me pill bottles

with child-proof caps--the kind you have to call your little grandchild to open.  Or how about that hunk of cotton in the top of the aspirin bottle--the one I can’t quite get my fingers in to get a good enough hold to pull it out.     Then there’s the telephone.  A wonderful, useful invention but it offers more than its share of frustrations.  “If you want ____press 1 now, if you want ____press 7 now” and so on until I finally hear, in essence, “Since you are old-fashioned enough to be on a phone instead of on a computer, if  you wish to speak with a human, please stay on the line, your call is important to us.” 

    I call my best friend and am told how great it is to talk with me then, in the middle of a sentence, I hear a strange clicking sound followed by my best friend saying, “Will you hold a minute?  I’m getting another call.”      I make it through a hectic day, sit down and put my feet up.  Phone rings.  I struggle up to answer it only to hear, “Hi, I’m Howard the computer.  I’d like a few minutes of your time.”     Yeah, I love life but it ain’t perfect.  Decided to relax with a glass of wine.  Terrifficcc--the corkscrew came out.  The cork stayed in.

It should be a great

day and we look forward to some very competitive racing,” he added.

An associate of the Beacon Media News family has been in Afghanistan working with Womens' Health issues for the past 8 years – Perceptibly a dangerous job at the best of times, however last week was a exceptionally alarming week for this humanitarian whose company – Family Health Alliance – trains male doctors in that country how best to deal with women's health issues which also includes advising husbands of patients - particularly with reproductive rights. Thus far Melody Salke has trained over 200 doctors in Afghanistan. We received this dispach via email and wanted to share it with our readers and we're glad to report she is fine: “There were multiple suicide bombings and attacks in Kabul today, it is still going on as I write. One of the major areas was where I was having a meeting, Ministry of Public Health (MoPH). For some insane reason the MoPH is right next door to the US Embassy and today was caught in cross fire.All women and children at the Ministry were directed to a room on 3rd floor while rockets where passing above our heads. From the window you could hear the machine guns nearby. A bullet hit the window of the room next to me.At first we were told to stay put. Then they decided that during a rocket attack we are not safe there. Shockingly the MoPH has NO emergency plan or threat assessment in place. So when I asked the head of the reproductive health department Dr …, who was sitting next to me with her two daughters ( 7 and 9 ) trying to console the younger one who cried at the sound of every rocket, she said they have no idea where the safest place is in this 3 story large building! and they have never had an emergency plan!I called the US embassy line and asked if they think we should leave the building or stay where we are. The operator said not to leave the building at all, when I told her that everyone is leaving she said follow what you think is the best way. I decided to leave with my Afghan colleagues. As we were directed to go outside in groups of 5 rockets and gun fire was getting louder. We entered Wazir akbar kahn main street and were directed by several different security personnel to keep low and move forward. No clear direction what to do. At one point a soldier asked me and the other two women with me to get in his car so he can drive us away from the area. I refused and told the others BAD idea to get in an army car now.There were some journalists on the side taking pictures of us running, you may see me on TV :) I used my I phone to film as I was running too but was too busy figuring out which direction to go so I put it away.As we were running I had to duck as a rocket went by over our heads followed by a bullet. I think this was the scariest moment for me as the sound of the bullet was so close. We entered a residential area where armed private security guards and army were directing us away from the area. Sharp shooters on every roof. The doctor with me was on the phone trying to tell a friend about our location so we can get picked up.After running a few blocks a white Toyota Landcruser pulled up and I was instructed by my Dr friend to get in, all 9 of us drove away. The car belonged to the husband of one of the MoPH’s doctors. She was also in the car. This was his 3rd trip to the area to load up and move MoPH people away. He is a surgeon, a brave and a gentleman. As the car started to speed away from the area I received a call from a man from the US Embassy. After asking some questions he said to tell him where I am so he can send a team to extract me. I thought being near a bunch of American soldiers and perhaps Marines may not be the best option at the moment. I felt safe and secure with my Afghan friends who were concerned about my safety since the ordeal started. So I said I will call him back if there is a need. I was taken to a safe area where I called my poor driver, who had gotten close to the fighting area twice to try and get me out and I missed his numerous calls as I was running, to pick me up. I have never seen a person I just met so relieved at seeing me safe. I am back at my guest house now. There are helicopters and planes flying by and I can hear the sound of rockets, not so close this time. I am not sure what the extent of the attack is but this is what I heard: there were 3 simultaneous attacks, a mini bus carrying school children and a middle school was hit. It is amazing these health workers get anything done. I wish there was a way to bring peace to these warm courageous people. On a lighter note, the male involvement in family planning program is going strong.   Melody Salke Womens’ Health Alliance

Take Me Out to Crown City Sports in Old Pasadena Local Couple Loves Playing Around - Like Kids in a Candy Store

Dave Harbaugh and wife Marta just opened Crown City Sports last Saturday – Photo by Terry Miller

Senior to Senior Computer Tutor Easy, effective computer instruction for seniors by a senior.

Continued from page 1 The victim, an African American man in his 30s, was declared dead at the scene .

The Doozies

Pasadena couple Dave Harbaugh and his charming wife Marta Flor have many passions in life. One of their recent endeavors was as music promoters for some of Los Angeles’ best local talent. But as is life, they progressed on to another verse of Dave’s first loves ( aside from his wife, that is)… sports memorabilia which, of course includes the time-tested and honored vintage baseball cards. I’ve never collected baseball cards, being from the UK, but I know hundreds of people who are absolutely crazy about this game and collect anything and everything related to their favoirite team. Owned and operated by Marta Flor , David Harbaugh and James Ross: Crown City sports carries an exclusive brand called “Touch” which is actress Alyssa Milano’s womens clothing line. They are only one of two physical stores in California that have been approved to carry her apparel, the other being in Beverly Hills. Currently Crown City Sports stock includes USC & UCLA womens short sleeve and long sleeve shirts from her company. We will have the complete Touch line in for spring 2012, which will include MLB, NFL, NBA and NCAA. Going forward the shop’s focus will be on sportscaps, sportscards, and retro and throwback apparel.  Crown City also has unique sports lines of retro throw back t-shirts from the

BY TERRY MILLER Junk Food and Red Jacket clothing lines. You can get assorted local team’s apparel as well as top teams from across the country. In addition to apparel, they also carry an extensive line of sports collectibles from pennants and flags to bobbleheads and key chains. As well as a choice selection of autographed memorabilia. The store is currently building it’s hobby and sportscard side of the business, with plans to be the biggest retailer of sportscards in Pasadena.  Starting in 2012 the store will be beginning to hold in-store meet and greet events and autograph signings with top sports stars from some of your favorite local teams (Dodgers, Lakers, etc.) For many people collecting some signed memorabilia is a great hobby. But, it is a fact that these items are not always cheap, which is the reason why not everyone can go for them. Thus, there have always been only few people with enough money to spend on these memorabilia. The fascinating thing is that everything is changing in last few years, including the trend related to sports memorabilia. Now is the time when you can experience an upsurge in the sale of these types of products, which is not without a reason. It is crucial to mention that though there is a surge in the sales of signed items, but there is a clear trend. The trend is about the sales of vintage sports memorabilia. What it means is that people are buying these

items, but they are not going for the modern memorabilia. Although it seems strange, there are reasons behind this surge. And, the reason is the liking of baby boomers for these vintage sports memorabilia. With an increase in the number of baby boomers, there is an evident increase in the sales of these types of items. Starting in 2012 the store will be beginning to hold in-store meet and greet events and autograph signings with top sports stars from some of your favorite local teams (Dodgers, Lakers, etc.) And if you’ve got an attic full of old sportscards just gathering dust and don’t know what to do with them, you can always bring them by the shop. They buy and sell sportscards and autographed memorabilia. A sportsman’s paradise awaits you. Open Tuesday Thursday 11am to 8pm  Friday - Saturday 11am to 9:30pm Sunday 11am to 6pm CLOSED Monday’s. Give them a call at 356-9726 or better yet visit their new store at 17 N Raymond.

Sierra Madre’s All-American Donna Marovish conquers Mighty Rockies in Colorado Springs Winning a gold medal in the half-marathon at age 62! BY HARRY SNEIDER - SPECIAL TO BEACON MEDIA Marathons are not for sissies! Donna exemplifies what it takes to conquer many mountains in her life with her perseverance and character. She has been running for 18 years and inspiring her friends to stay healthy and fit. Her girlfriend Judi Conner, 65, took on a life threatening battle against obesity and she dropped 100 POUNDS of bodyweight! She has become Donna’s inspirational coach as well as her best friend. How does one stay in shape? The first thing is to do what Donna did – just walk her dog on a daily basis. Since Donna lives in Sierra Madre there are many mountains in the beautiful community. She has conquered Mt. Whitney 6 times with Vic, her husband of 43 years! It’s wonderful if you

have a mate to train with. This is one of the secrets of staying with any fitness program, whether it’s walking, jogging, playing a sport, lifting weights, swimming in your pool, or cycling on safe roads in the San Gabriel Valley. Fitness can be fun when you have someone to share your life

with. If you don’t have a husband or wife, it can be someone from your church, your business, your school, or wherever. It’s always safer to go out and exercise in pairs. Judi Conner is amazing in her quest to lose weight and stay healthy. Judi has been married

Soderbergh Shows Too Much Restraint in Killer Virus Movie (Contagion) With movies like Traffic and Erin Brockovich, director Steven Soderbergh firmly established himself as director who can artfully convey the minutiae of human conflict, not to mention his ability to make films that are top box office draws (Who hasn’t seen the Ocean movies?) But in viewing his latest film, Contagion, I felt a bit cheated out of what could have been. The story revolves around several mini-plots, which

are all woven together by the fact that a deadly virus begins to spread at breakneck speed throughout the world, killing those infected within days. A father (Matt Damon) tries to protect his daughter from infection; a high-level CDC bureaucrat (Laurence Fishburne) struggles to control the spread of the virus; a doctor (Kate Winslet) witnesses the onslaught of suffering caused by the virus; a web blogger (Jude Law) threatens to uncover a vast

conspiracy surrounding the virus. But while the film starts out like a roller coaster, hurling you from one tense scene to the next, it loses velocity midway through and concludes at a trolley car’s pace, as the characters played by this incredible ensemble cast become more subdued than distressed, action scenes are short-lived, and a resolution is found much too easily.

45 years to her husband Don, an avid outdoors man. There are many of you wondering what you can do about your particular weight challenge. No one said it would be easy to lose 100 pounds. It starts with a simple exercise program that has goals in it like losing a pound a week while staying with a sound nutritional program. As you can see this will require

some discipline. As Teddy Roosevelt said to Americans while he was in The White House, “Above body and mind stands character”. You can do it! Don’t compromise your health. You are worth more than millions of dollars. Studies have shown that working out 3 times a week for 20 minutes can help you to stave off illness as well as

keep you in good shape. Certainly you can afford the time. There are many who are depending on you. Become champions of character and conditioning like our friends Donna and Judi. Harry and Sarah Sneider have been working with Donna and Judi for a number of years. They can be reached at 626-355-8964 or harrysneider@earthlink.net.

Ralphs had said it might close all of its Southern California stores if the workers went on strike, while Vons planned to stay open with replacement workers and management. Albertsons had planned to close about 100 of its stores in case of a walkout. The last strike in 2004, lasted four months.

American Heart Association Recognizes Methodist Hospital with Heart Attack Care Award Methodist Hospital was recognized recently by the American Heart Association as a Mission: Lifeline Receiving Center Silver Performance Achievement Award Hospital. The award recognizes the hospital’s commitment to and success for heart attack patients in implementing a higher standard of care that effectively improves the survival and care of STEMI (ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction) patients. Every year, almost 250,000 people experience the STEMI type of heart attack. Unfortunately, many don’t receive prompt reperfusion therapy that is critical in restoring blood flow. Mission: Lifeline seeks to close the gaps that separate STEMI patients from timely access to appropriate treatments. Mission: Lifeline focuses on improving the system of care for these patients and ultimately improving care for all heart attack patients. Hospitals that are involved in Mission: Lifeline strive to improve care in both acute treatment measures and discharge measures. “Methodist Hospital is dedicated to making our cardiac unit among the best in the country, and the American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline program helps us accomplish that by making it easier for our professionals to improve the outcomes of our cardiac patients,” said Dennis Lee, president and CEO. “I am pleased that our physicians, nurses and other clinicians are being recognized for their dedication and achievements in cardiac care.” Hospitals that receive the Mission: Lifeline Silver Performance Achievement Award have demonstrated for 12 consecutive months that at least 85 percent of eligible STEMI patients are treated within specific time frames upon entering the hospital and are

discharged following the American Heart Association’s recommended treatment guidelines. To be designated as a STEMI-receiving hospital, a hospital must have the equipment, expertise and facilities to administer percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), a mechanical means of treating heart attack patients. Although PCI is the preferred means of treating STEMI patients, only 25 percent of hospitals in the country are equipped to do so. These PCI-capable hospitals – like Methodist Hospital – are called STEMI-receiving hospitals because they are well equipped to receive and treat STEMI patients. About Methodist Hospital Founded in 1903, Methodist Hospital is a 460-bed, not-for-profit hospital serving Arcadia and surrounding communities. Services include comprehensive acute care such as medical, surgical, perinatal, pediatrics, oncology, intensive care (neonatal and adult) and complete cardiovascular services, including open-heart surgery. Methodist Hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission. For more information, please call 626-898-8000 or visit www.methodisthospital. org. About Mission: Lifeline The American Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline program helps hospitals and emergency medical services develop systems of care that follow proven standards and procedures for STEMI patients. The program works by mobilizing teams across the continuum of care to implement American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology clinical treatment guidelines.

Arcadia Honors George Haines

Santa Anita President Honored By City Council

Highly experienced professionals providing quality mental health services for Adults, Adolescents and Children in both hospital and outpatient settings.

The City of Arcadia honored Santa Anita President George Haines Tuesday night by officially proclaiming Sept. 20 as “George Haines Day” in his native Arcadia. Haines grew up in Arcadia and is currently in his 40th year of employment at “The Great Race Place.” After graduating from Arcadia High School in 1972, Haines attended California State University, Long Beach, where he graduated with a degree in accounting in 1976. Haines first worked at Santa Anita in 1972, manning an information window as a member of the track’s Pari-mutuel Department, helping patrons with a variety of questions and paperwork related to wagering. “It’s hard to believe it’s been this long, but it has been 40 years,” said Haines. “I feel very fortunate to have been able to work with so many fine people over the years and to have been able to experience some of the greatest racing in Santa Anita’s history. It’s been an incredible run for me and my family and we’d like to sincerely thank the City of Arcadia for this proclamation. It’s a real honor.” Haines was appointed Director of Santa Anita’s Pari-mutuel De-

partment in 1984, a period in which average daily crowds often totaled 30,000 or more. “The racing business has changed a lot over the ensuing years. Now we offer simulcasting and advanced deposit wagering for our fans. “The new Autumn Meet opens on Sept. 30 and we’re getting ready for that. It’s just as exciting for me now as it was 40 years ago. I can’t wait.” Haines was promoted to Assistant General Manager in 1999 and became Santa Anita’s Vice President, Operations and General Manager in 2004. He became President and General Manager in May, 2010. In addition to his executive duties, Haines serves as Secretary-Treasurer for the Winners Foundation, a racing industry charity that helps men and women with substance abuse problems. Haines is also a member of the Los Angeles Sports Council. He lives in Monrovia with his wife, Adrienne, and sons, Alex and Brian. Santa Anita’s 2011 Autumn Meet opens on Friday, Sept. 30.

Monrovia Reads Announces Its Olympic Speakers Series

Kiwanis Provide a Taste of Monrovia

Olympic Champions to Give Talks at the Monrovia Library

BY SUSAN MOTANDER

BY SUSAN MOTANDER Several Southern California Olympians are being featured in the Monrovia Reads Distinguished Speakers series.  The four speakers featured at this point are Louis  Zamperini, John Naber, Mark Crear and Kim Rhode.  While a schedule exist for who will speak on each date, their commitments to the International Olympic Committee and to the U.S. Olympic Team.  There are, however, backup Olympians available for the series.  These athletes will share their stories of persistence, adversity, and success in the series, which kicks off on Oct. 13, during two hour sessions over a four week period. This is the first time that Monrovia Reads, a nonprofit organized dedicated to improving literacy throughout the community, has hosted the event. The series will consist of four Thursday evening events to be held in the Monrovia Library Community Room, 321 S. Myrtle Avenue, in Monrovia from 7 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 13, Nov. 10, Feb. 9, and March 8.  All of this is a build up to the Olympic games games next summer. In addition to hearing these distinguished American athletes speak, each person in attendance will receive a goody bag at each event with gifts from Monrovia Reads and local merchants (even the bags themselves were

supplies by local grocery chains).  Each person in attendance will also receive a book by or about the Olympian speaking or on the their respective sport.  The athletes will be available to autograph these books after the lecture. Tentatively scheduled for the first lecture is Louis Zamperini who at 93 is the senior statesman of the U.S. Olympic Team.  After competing in 1936 in Berlin, running the mile, in 1941 he enlisted, as did most young men at that time, in the Army Air Corps.  In 1943 he was shot down over the Pacific Ocean, captured by the Japanese Navy and served the rest of the war as a P.O.W.  Despite this experience, he says he has forgiven his captors and even (at the age of 81) ran a leg of the Olympic torch run for the Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. Four time Olympian, Rhode, now 32, was just 16 when she competed and won a gold medal in the 1996 Olympics in double trap. Since then, she has received a bronze medal in the 2000 Olympics, a gold medal in the 2004 Olympics, and a silver medal in International Skeet in the 2008 Olympics. And she has her sights set on the gold in 2012. She is the first athlete to secure a spot on the American Olympic Team for the London Games. Today, she resides in Monrovia.

Naber, who competed in the 1976 Montreal Olympics received four gold medals and one silver medal in swimming, He went on to expand his career by working as a broadcaster and an author. San Gabriel Valley native Mark Crear attended Rowland High School and then Mt. San Antonio College before getting a scholarship in track and field to the University of Southern California (like Zamperini decades earlier). There, he clenched the NCAA Championship Title in the 110-meter high hurdles. He then went on to become a two-time Olympic Medalist, reigning as the world’s No. 1 110-meter high hurdler in 1995, 1998 and 1999. The former track star captured global attention by winning the 1996 Olympic Silver Medal with a broken arm and the 2000 Olympic Bronze Medal with a double hernia. “Monrovia Reads is so pleased to present these Olympians in a close, personal setting, during which they will share their experiences as representatives of the USA as world class athletes,” said Joanne Spring, Monrovia Reads founding member and past president.  “These are people of high integrity and strong moral fiber.  Their message is relevant for all ages.” Tickets for this fundraising event are $1,000 for the set of two tickets for each of the four speakers.

About the Pasadena Symphony and POPS The Pasadena Symphony Association was founded in 1928 by Conductor Reginald Bland. Originally named the Pasadena Civic Orchestra, its first members were mostly volunteer musicians, many of whom were students of Bland. The annual operating budget was $3,500, which was funded en-

tirely by the City of Pasadena. The Pasadena Symphony and POPS is an ensemble of Southern California’s most talented, sought after musicians. With extensive credits in the film, television, recording and orchestral industry, the artists of Pasadena Symphony and POPS are the most heard in the world. In the fall of 2007, the Pasadena Symphony incorporated the Pasadena POPS into its Association under the new name Pasadena Symphony and POPS. This merger created an expanded Classics and POPS series pro-

viding the community with a full spectrum of live symphonic concerts year-round. Starting summer 2012, the Pasadena POPS’ summer home will relocate to Los Angeles County Arboretum. The Pasadena Symphony provides a musical experience like no other at the Ambassador Auditorium – known as the Carnegie Hall of the West. Internationally recognized, Presidential Medal of Arts Recipient, Maestro James DePreist, serves as the Pasadena Symphony Association’s Artistic Advisor. The Pasadena POPS welcomed

Marvin Hamlisch to the podium as its new Principal Pops Conductor on July 23, 2011. A hallmark of its robust education programs, the Pasadena Symphony Association has served the youth of the region since 1972 through the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra comprised of over 160 gifted middle school students from more than 40 schools all over the Southland. The PYSO most recently performed on several episodes of the popular television show GLEE.

We ran into Arcadia Mayor Gary Kovacic and his wife Barb at the Taste of Arcadia Monday evening. Nothing acutely unusual about that really, until we found out that Kovacic was a patient at Methodist Hospital very recently after a close encounter with a possible heart attack. On Thursday September 8, Kovacic had an emergency procedure to put a stent in one of his three major heart arteries when it was discovered that the Left Anterior Descending (LAD) artery was 90% to 95% blocked. He was released the following day after an overnight stay at Methodist, and 24-hours later was back at that very hospital for a dedication ceremony of the new patient tower that has been under construction for some time now. An avid cyclist, Kovacic said he felt unusually exhausted after a short back-pack hike with his son and the recent “Cool Breez-

es” bike ride from Ventura to Santa Barbara and back.  But that didn’t spark him to see a doctor or to cancel his plane trip to Texas to see his beloved UCLA Bruins’ opening football game. A good friend, Tim Murphy, a former fire chief and current member of the Arcadia Human Resources Commission, strongly suggested he see a cardiologist that Kovacic was ordered to have an immediate angiogram that showed the blockage. Angiogram is x-rays of blood vessels it uses a special dye and camera (fluoroscopy) to visualize the arteries on the surface of the heart to see if any of them are blocked. An angiogram is also used to look at the arteries or veins in the arms, legs, chest or belly. Common Angiograms can see the arteries near the heart (coronary angiogram), Lungs (pulmonary angiogram), brain (cerebral angiogram), head and neck (carotid angiogram), legs or

arms (peripheral, and the aorta (aortogram). When there is not enough blood flow to the heart muscles, this is often manifested as chest pain. By just using an ordinary x-ray you will not see the coronary arteries. These have to be made visible by using a special dye. The dye is delivered through a catheter that is guided from a blood vessel in the upper thigh all the way up to the heart. Once the catheter is already placed in the right position, a dye is then injected and it goes right into the coronary arteries, X-ray is then taken at the precise time the dye flows through the arteries. The dye is then excreted with the urine. The procedure doctor performed is quite common these days and which is why the Mayor agreed to let us and other media tell his tale and provide dramatic x rays of the before and after. The results were dramatic and immediate. Kovacic’s back in the saddle again, so to speak and conducting the business of Arcadia without missing a beat – literally. In a post script in his email to Beacon Media, Kovacic’s quipped …“Remember, a stent in time saves lives..”

Hilarious and Heartfelt “FLOWER DRUM SONG” - Don’t Miss It! Coming to the Historic San Gabriel Mission Playhouse October 1 and 2 The San Gabriel Valley Music Theatre and their Award Winning Creative Team which brought last year’s smash hit Miss Saigon to the San Gabriel Valley are mounting one of the most beloved musicals of all time, Rodgers and Hammersteins’ Flower Drum Song, over the weekend of October 1 and 2, 2011. Taking place at the Historic 1,400 seat San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, this opulent production is directed by Ray A. Rochelle, and will feature a stellar cast of performers accompanied by a live twenty-piece lavish orchestra conducted by Maestro Richard Allen. Producer Bobby Hundley says, “Flower Drum Song remains one of the most popular musicals of all time not only be-

cause of the fantastic score and terrific characters but it was such a progressive work for its day. In a fitting tribute, SGVMT will be honoring Hollywood Screen Legend Nancy Kwan at a dinner and performance in her honor for paving the way for Asian artists into the mainstream Hollywood and Broadway limelight. We’re honored to be associated with Ms. Kwan and have the chance to bring this beautiful and funny masterpiece to our community.” Nancy Kwan was the original Linda Low in the film version of Flower Drum Song and recently released a powerful, feature documentary about her life entitled: Ka Shen’s Journey. SGVMT will be hosting a VIP dinner and performance package;

hosted by restaurant Mission 261 in conjunction with the October 1 and 2 Flower Drum Song performances. Flower Drum Song features such hits as “I Enjoy Being A Girl” “A Hundred Million Miracles” “Grant Avenue” and “Love Look Away” while telling the tale of Mei-Li, who flees Mao’s communist China after the murder of her father and finds herself in San Francisco’s Chinatown. This naïve young refugee is befriended by Wang, who is struggling to keep the Chinese opera tradition alive despite his son’s determination to turn the old opera house into a swingin’ Western-style nightclub. A unique blending of American razz-ma-tazz and stylized Chinese opera traditions creates a beautifully

theatrical tapestry. The wonderful score, by turns lushly romantic and showbiz-brassy, retains all of its luster in this lovely new version of an American classic. Mei-Li’s gradual assimilation is informed by her realization that the old and new can coexist when there is respect for both.

SEPTEMBER 22, 2011 - SEPTEMBER 28, 2011 15

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Honors Oldest Living Patient Monrovia Resident was Treated at Hospital in 1917 Life Comes Full Circle for Hospital Supporter Helen Baker, 97, Who Tours New State-of-the-Art Hospital at Same Site Where She Had Surgery 94 Years Earlier In 1917, the price of a loaf of bread was 9 cents, the population of the City of Los Angeles was “only” 500,000 and penicillin would not be invented for another decade. Also in 1917, a 3-year-old child from Pasadena named Helen Baker came to the recently opened Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for successful minor neck surgery. Amazingly, 94 years later, Helen recently returned to the hospital as its oldest living patient to be honored for her lifelong support of the institution and take a tour of the newly opened high-tech patient tower. “As a 3-year-old little girl having surgery, I was extremely emotional about being in the hospital,” said Baker. “I remember being so scared to get on the gurney on the way to surgery when one of the orderlies scooped me up and personally carried me to the surgical ward. He did the same thing for me when the surgery was over. I

was so grateful to everyone at the hospital for their kindness. It was an experience that has shaped my entire life.” That experience prompted Helen to give back and in 1948, she co-founded the Monrovia Guild. Today, the organization continues to raise awareness and support for the hospital in the San Gabriel Valley. To recognize a lifetime of fundraising and volunteering efforts, the hospital held a ceremony on Sept. 14 in honor of Baker. Part of the festivities included touring the Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, a 317-bed patient tower now located in the same place where Baker had her surgery. The new building opened in July and was built at a cost of $636 million. More than 20 members of the current Monrovia Guild were present at ceremonies where hospital President and CEO Richard D. Cordova, FACHE, and

Bonnie McClure, chair, Associates & Affiliates and hospital Board of Trustees member, presented Baker with a Certificate of Commendation for all of her six decades of philanthropic and volunteer efforts on behalf of the hospital. In addition, City of Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz presented Baker with a special certificate from the city for all of her hard work with the Monrovia Guild. “When Helen came here in 1917, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles had just opened its new state-of-the-art 100bed hospital. Helen is now our oldest living patient – so we must have done a good job with her care back then,” quipped Cordova. “We are thankful for all of Helen’s support and are extremely proud to honor her for all of her achievements.” Baker continues to be energetic, quick-witted and maintains a great sense of humor. “I learned to drive a

tractor at age 14 and can still drive a car today,” Baker said, proudly. “I just passed my driver’s test on my last birthday so my license is good until I turn 102.” While she now resides in Ventura, she spent most of her life in the San Gabriel Valley living primarily in Pasadena, Monrovia and San Dimas. She attended UC Berkeley and earned a bachelor’s degree in history and met her future husband while in college. They had three children and were married for more than 50 years until his passing more than 20 years ago. “I was overwhelmed by everyone’s kindness when I first came here 94 years ago, and I am overwhelmed again today,” Baker said. “I have no plans to slow down and hope to come back to the hospital for a visit when I turn 100.” About Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Children’s Hospital Los Angeles has been named the best children’s hospital in California and

Helen Baker, third from right, was recently honored for her volunteer efforts on behalf of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and for being the hospital’s oldest living patient. Honoring Baker are, from left, Bonnie McClure, Hospital Board of Trustees Member and Chair, Hospital Associates & Affiliates; Baker’s son Steve and daughter Susan; Hospital President and CEO Richard Cordova; and City of Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz.

among the best in the nation for clinical excellence with its selection to the prestigious US News & World Report Honor Roll. Children’s Hospital is home to The Saban Research Institute, one of the largest and most productive pediatric research facilities in the United States. The hospital is also one of America’s premier teach-

ing hospitals through its affiliation since 1932 with the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. For more information, visit www.CHLA.org. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn, or visit our blog: www. WeAreChildrens.org.

Realignment provides for a reduction in the state prison population over time without the early release of state prisoners, while

allowing the most dangerous criminals to be kept behind bars. Today’s conference is intended to help provide local officials with the tools they need in advance of the October 1st rollout of public safety realignment. For more information on realignment, visit: www.cdcr. ca.gov/realignment. 

Symposia on Sediment Management to Seek Solutions to Difficult Problem

WINNER

WE MESQUITE BROIL ALL OUR FISH.

Governer Brown Continues to Fight

3/28/11 3:11 PM

The Council for Watershed Health invites you to join leading experts from environmental organizations and government agency managers on September 20, 2011 as they tackle the complex issue of sediment management in southern California. The forum presents an opportunity to learn about management plans experiences here in LA and in other regions. “Shifting Soil: Sediment Management Policies in LA” will be held from 12 to 4pm at Descanso Gardens in La Canada-Flintridge. Sediment management plays an important role in the health of southern California watersheds and has been a contentious issue of late in Los Angeles, with stories popping up across the news since last winter. Already a strained system, the impacts of the Station Fire and subsequent rain events on local flood control systems caused  more sediment to build up behind dams, with debris levels rising by as much as 20 feet behind some dams. The same natural forces created new habitats and post-fire areas have seen the birth of new communities of rare animal and plant species. 

The scenario is repeated across the state. Throughout California, wildfires have created situations that have caused sediment back-up in dams. Because these dams exist at the intersection of rare riparian habitats and dynamic urban areas, they face situations that are remarkably similar. As the State moves toward being an example of sustainability, how we manage this sediment will speak volumes to our ability to plan for the future. The interplay between earth, wind, water and fire has created both an incredible challenge and an incredible opportunity. Panelists confirmed to attend include: Tomas Beauchamp, US Army Corps of Engineers Tim Brick, Arroyo Seco Foundation Gary Hildebrand, LA County Flood Control District Lynnette Kampe, Theodore Payne Foundation LB Nye, Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board Jeff Pratt, Ventura County Public Works Agency CherylSwift,WhittierCollege Pete Wohlgemuth, US Forest Service Greg Woodside, Orange County Water District

Tony Zampiello, Main San Gabriel Basin Water District   Advanced registration for the symposia is required. To register, please visit www.watershedhealth. org or call (213) 229-9945. The Council for Watershed Health supports a healthy watershed for the region by serving as a robust center for the generation of objective research and analysis.  The Council has established a platform for meaningful collaboration between governmental organizations, academic institutions, businesses and other nonprofit organizations with a vested interest in preserving the watershed. Founded in 1995 by leading environmental activist Dorothy Green, the Council for Watershed Health produces continuing research programs that examine water usage and quality as well as create and enhance preservation and conservation tactics. The trustworthy expertise and analysis that comes from the Council’s ongoing programs connects a diverse set of groups with overlapping missions in an effort to drive polices that will continually improve watershed quality.

POLICE BLOTTERS Arcadia PD

For the period of Sunday, September 11, through Saturday, September 17, the Police Department responded to 888 calls for service of which 130 required formal investigations. The following is a summary report of the major incidents handled by the Department during this period. Sunday, September 11: At about 3:45 a.m., a traffic stop was conducted on Santa Anita Avenue and Colorado Boulevard for a missing headlight and flat tire. Through investigation, the officer learned that the driver, a 33-yearold male of unknown race, had collided with a pole in the center median and was under the influence. The male was booked at the Arcadia City Jail for D.U.I. Officers responded to the 1100 block of West Duarte Road in reference to a male and female arguing inside a parked vehicle. The two parties were contacted and a records check of the involved 22-year-old White male revealed two outstanding misdemeanor warrants, for which he was arrested. Monday, September 12: 3. Arcadia High School, 180 Campus Drive, and Holly Avenue Elementary, 360 West Duarte, reported that sometime over the weekend the campus vending machines were vandalized. The locking mechanisms were broken and the money inside was stolen. 4. At approximately 5:21 p.m., officers responded to the Westfield Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue regarding suspicious circumstances. The victim told officers that on September 1st, he received a voicemail from a male with a heavy “Indian accent” who stated he was from “Consumer Affairs and Business Regulations” and that he had a business/legal matter to discuss with him. Upon returning the call, the victim spoke with a female subject that identified herself as an attorney, also with a very heavy “Indian accent”, and told the victim there was an outstanding debt which he needed to pay immediately or legal action would be taken. The victim, believing this

was a true debt, purchased a prepaid Visa as instructed and then faxed the card information to the number provided by the female. The victim believes the incident was fraudulent and possibly from outside the country. Tuesday, September 13: 5. Between Monday September 12th at 9:30 p.m., and Tuesday September 13th at 8:15 a.m., a vehicle theft occurred in the 200 block of San Antonio Road. Suspect(s) stole a 2007, black, GMC Yukon SUV, parked to the front of the location. 6. At about 4:00 p.m., a victim came to the station to report that a fraud had occurred on September 8th. An 81-year-old female victim advised that after shopping at Walgreens, 253 East Foothill Boulevard, she was approached by two males described as Hispanic, in their mid twenties, about 5’-07”, 170 lbs., with medium length black hair in the parking lot. The suspects told her that they were mechanics and would be able to repair the existing collision damage on her vehicle. The victim agreed and gave the men a check to purchase the materials and later meet her at her residence to fix the car. The check was cashed later that day and the suspects never arrived at her home. Wednesday, September 14: 7.

Department of Child and Family Services Referral / Resisting and Delaying a Police Officer - Suspect Arrested On September 10 at 7:30 a.m., officers went to a residence in the 200 block of Madeline to investigate a referral from the Department of Child and Family Services.

There were six additional adults in the residence who were all at varying stages of intoxication. The officers took the minor into protective custody. The mother tried to prevent the officers from leaving with the child, and she was subsequently arrested for resisting and delaying a police officer. After a caseworker from Department of Child and Family Services interviewed the child, she was released to her father. Fight in Progress / Possession of a Concealed Weapon / Public Intoxication - Suspect Arrested On September 11 at 1:52 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 600 block of South Primrose regard-

ing a fight in progress. When officers arrived, they detained five subjects and conducted pat-down searches on them.

The other subjects were released in the field. Driving Under the Influence / Traffic Collision - Suspect Arrested On September 11 at 3:04 a.m., officers on patrol in the 100 block of West Huntington heard the sound of a traffic collision. The officers observed a vehicle leaving the area westbound on Foothill at a high rate of speed. An officer followed the vehicle and eventually caught up to it as it entered into the City of Arcadia. The driver was detained and was determined to be driving under the influence and was arrested. The investigation revealed the driver had fled the scene of a traffic collision. It was discovered that the suspect struck an unoccupied parked vehicle in the 100 block of Stedman. The suspect was arrested for driving under the influence and hit and run. Residential Burglary On September 12 at 3:43 p.m., a resident in the 200 block of Bradoaks heard noises in her home.

Residential Burglary On September 12 at 5:06 p.m., a resident in the 400 block of Oakcliff returned home from work at about 5:10 p.m. and found the inside of his home ransacked.
