The Tournament Of Roses® Announces 2012 Rose Queen® 16-Year-Old Drew Washington to Preside over Parade

By Susan Motander In the last two years, George Brokate and Excalibur Properties, LLC which Brokate owns, has filed four lawsuits from which the City of Monrovia has had to defend itself and the members of its City Council and City Staff. These four lawsuits, filed since March 2010 have regarded the development of the Gold Line Mainte-

The Pasadena Tournament of Roses named Drew Helen Washington as the 94th Rose Queen Tuesday. Tuesday’s announcement concludes a month-long process that began with 900 Pasadenaarea young women who participated in the Tournament of Roses Royal Court tryouts. The Rose Queen and Royal Court will reign over the 2012 Tournament of Roses festivities, culminating in the 123rd Rose Parade® presented by Honda and themed Just

Imagine…, and the 98th Rose Bowl Game® presented by VIZIO. “2012 Rose Queen Drew Washington and our six princesses are perfect ambassadors for the Tournament of Roses and the city of Pasadena,” said Tournament of Roses 2012 President Rick Jackson. “They are talented, graceful and stellar role models who will inspire many young girls. We are delighted to have Queen Drew lead our court and reign over the 123rd Rose

Parade and 98th Rose Bowl Game.” Drew Washington, 16, is second African American Rose Queen in the Tournament of Roses History . The first was Kristina Smith, a 20-year-old PCC student who was Rose Queen in 1985. Queen Drew and the six Rose Princesses were selected based upon a combination of qualities, including public speaking ability, poise, academic

To mitigate the high cost of the proposed jail plan, a motion by County Mayor Michael D. Antonovich requesting that the Sheriff’s Department and the Chief Executive Officer explore less costly alternatives including public-private partnerships

and contracting with other entities for jail beds was unanimously approved by the Board of Supervisors. In his motion, Antonovich suggested that construction costs could be absorbed by the contractor in exchange for the County’s guarantee to enter into a

long term lease payment on a daily cost-per-bed basis or simply contract with other entities for additional jail beds to avoid construction costs at Pitchess Detention Center or the replacement of Men’s Central Jail.

Studying for Peace

KGEM Corner

Dorothy's Place

By Dorothy Denne I'd like to salve my conscience and explain my waist by saying that I've been doing some scientific study lately. I guess the experts would say the study wasn't scientific because there was no control group. Goodness knows, there was no control at all. You see, I was studying All You Can Eat Buffets. Now, "all you can eat" may be different quantities for different people, but the principle is the same. I didn't see anyone go through those lines who was thinking diet. Maybe they were thinking diet tomorrow but certainly not

diet today. I hadn't planned to do my study. It just seemed to happen. I usually stay away from those places. I don't have to explain why. If you're reading this you can understand why without an explanation. You're smart and you obviously have good taste. My study found me finally sitting in what I would call the Mother of All Buffets. At least it is the Mother of the ones I've visited. I have friends who have gone on ocean cruises that say they could outdo me. I don't think I'd like being rocked while I eat. I guess cruisers don't rock like ferry boats or do they? Now there's another study that sounds worthwhile. Back to this one. I'm a people watcher. I enjoy that almost as much as I enjoy eating. The beautiful part about

this study was that I could do both at the same time. Sometimes it is difficult to successfully do two things at one time but, when one is really accomplished at both, it is possible. There were eight food stations offering a variety of food ranging from lettuce to hot fudge sundae cake topped with ice cream. There was just as great variety in the people. They came in all ages and sizes. They ranged from kicking kids in infant seats sucking on pieces of anything Mom handed them to a bent old man pushing a wheeled walker with a tray across the front. There were a few who were thin. Most of them were young though, so give them a few years. Any older thin ones probably had metabolic disorders. Most of the crowd were in varying stages of not thin.

There were diverse styles of handling the food; skillfully piling it high then preventing the big slide by the proper placement of thumb and forefinger, spacing several plates up the arm waitress style, making trip after trip after trip, and a combination of all of the above The tastes differed, the styles differed, the bodies differed but they all had one thing in common: they were smiling and laughing. I didn't see anyone fighting. They couldn't. Their pants were too tight. Besides they were enjoying themselves while working at a shared interest. Wouldn't a giant buffet table stretched 'round the earth make this a softer, gentler world? Study that. Then call me. I'm available for peace talks.

We are pleased to have a special contribution from the Executive Director of KGEM in Monrovia, Lance Mungia. Mungia and Ralph Walker went to Los Angeles Saturday morning to cover Occupy LA, Los Angeles’ version of Occupy Wall Street. You may see the video on our website and on KGEM which Mugia and Walker made Saturday. Here are some of Mungia’s thoughts on the experience:

An Occupied Heart By Lance Mungia They say that idol hands are the devil’s playground. I’ll make a new version of that saying and state that based on the events of Saturday October 15th in L.A.’s financial district and our trip there, an occupied heart is the height of democracy and the beginning of a shift in the way some people are thinking both on the streets of LA and beyond. What that ultimately means, remains to be decided by the 99%. The only thing of certainty is that the 99% has arrived and is not planning to leave the steps of L.A. City Hall anytime soon. Yesterday my good friend and longtime KGEM host Ralph Walker and I took a train ride out to the Occupy Los Angeles rally in the financial district to see what Occupy L.A. was all

about. Ralph didn’t sleep much the night before. Neither had I. Honestly neither of us knew what to expect other than it would certainly be news worthy. Upon riding the Gold Line we sat near a young man carrying a large plastic container filled with dry goods and paper products. He was apologetic for the size of his box. They were supplies for those parked in tents outside City Hall. He’d never been there before either but felt the need to simply bring something to the rally. Ralph also had a spirited conversation with another friend named Benjamin that had marched as a human shield for MLK and had

Occupy LA -Photo by Ralph Walker

Occupy LA

Continued from page 2 since found plenty of wrong with the system, with protesting in general and turned his heart to the beauty of growing roses and the company of good friends instead. It was the first protest he had attending since the 60’s. We approached the camp about 10 am. It seemed sparsely populated, located on the north side of L.A. City Hall. There were few people around. We got some stirring interview footage with those who were there and found a library, a medical tent, a meditation tent, compost and recycle bins and a generally clean and friendly atmosphere. I was disappointed and I think Ralph was too because there were so few tents and people, maybe two or three dozen tops. Or so we thought. Benjamin had to leave to tend to a friend before we really got a look around. I’m sorry he left, because what we saw next changed everything. You see, we hadn’t bothered to walk around the other side of city hall, where there were literally hundreds of additional tents. Yet, everywhere I walked, it seemed like a ghost town. Where were the occupiers? Someone remarked they saw a large group of people up the street gather-

ing for a march, which explained alot. Ralph and I started walking, following traffic cops who didn’t know much of what was going on. Then, we saw them. A long and wide stream of people several blocks ahead. They were marching back toward the camp. I wound up directly in the closed off street as the entire march approached, perhaps between 7 and 10 thousand people were what press there estimated. Ralph and I climbed into a potted tree planter to make an on camera report. The march was a sight to see and not something soon to forget. What struck me most was the diversity. We spoke with and filmed senior citizens who had never been to anything like it before. We spoke to young people, to middle aged artists and executives alike, people of all races, all beliefs, some more conservative, some more liberal, all joined by the realization that the status quo cannot sustain itself and will only be changed by those with the voice to change it. I was moved by the simplicity and beauty of the people present. There was no animosity, no raw anger as one would expect. It was an energy of coming together, of no longer accepting the

status quo, an energy of, dare I say it, open hearts and love. I will be posting more videos of the event as this footage below is just what was offloaded from my camera overnight and I have much more. Most affecting to me was my tour through the camp itself. I shot what I saw. I tried to find the things, the moments that others would overlook. The little things. A man asleep on a matt beside his tent. A dog straying in search of food. A child coloring as her mother painted a sign. A man and woman hugging as if they hadn’t seen each other in ten years. I realized that these people were not the disenfranchised, the unemployed, the lazy, the ones with idol hands… the people there yesterday were occupied with the feeling they had created. A sense of love, togetherness and friendship that had been missing too long. One young guy told us, “All we want is for people to come out, because if they come out and talk to their neighbors we can learn to use our imagination together. We can change the world.” Change the world? They had occupied hearts and with an occupied heart nothing is impossible.

To: The Editor: In the interest of transparency, this will also be read at the Sierra Madre City Council Meeting on October 25th. Thanks, Pat Alcorn At the October 11th Sierra Madre City Council Meeting, Councilmember Walsh blasted the General Plan Update Committee, specifically Chair Denise Delmar for wanting to hold secret meetings, for wanting to violate the Brown Act and for not being transparent in the Committee’s business. Walsh, in her rant also urged Councilmember MacGillivray to step down as liaison because MacGillivray perpetrated the notion that the General Plan was a document of the people rather than the responsibility of the City Council. In her “Lookie here” moment, as she describes it in her written statement, Walsh said, “folks in the audience can continue to come to the microphone and repeat the plan is the people’s plan and not the City Council’s as you have many times, and you will continue to be wrong. And after tonight you will just look foolish.” Contrary to that assertion, the State of California’s General Plan Guidelines are very extensive as to the broad issues that are to be covered in a General Plan. Amongst them is Chapter 8: Public Participation which quite clearly demands a broad involvement of the public in the process. It is also made quite clear that the General Plan is not the product of a single governing body.i.e. a city council It is the duty as an elected representative to listen to the citizens of Sierra Madre. It is also incumbent to be respectful and courteous to the public as they express their opinions. The disdain in calling the citizens foolish for expressing their opinions at a City Council Meeting or any public meeting is not only arrogant and disrespectful, but a slap in the face to all who wish to become involved in their City’s government. The accusations made of the GPUC of not being transparent and of wanting to conduct “secret meetings” is blatantly false.But, Lookie here - all meetings of the GPUC are open to the public. These meetings are

advertised and posted. No action is taken by any group outside of the GPUC meetings. These meetings have input from committee members as well as the general public. A concerted effort has been made to encourage participation by all the public. General public members are encouraged to speak on items on the agenda and otherwise bring up items of their concern. This is indeed a people’s document in every sense of the word. This document is not the City Council’s document – the Council will read, discuss, and take additional input from the public at a public hearing after approval of the Planning Commission. Then and only then can the Council vote to approve. When the GPUC was first appointed there was frustration on the parts of both the Committee and the City Staff because there were not enough hours or days available by staff to schedule regular meetings in which the staff could attend. Chair Delmar explored a way to meet without staff and without violating the Brown Act. Legal Council ruled against those options. However it was determined that subcommittees could be formed to study and make recommendations to the Committee as a whole. Their out-put is discussed thoroughly at a regular GPUC meeting. This has helped speed up the process immeasurably. The Committee was also concerned as how to adequately plan for community involvement including community meetings and not take valuable time away from working on the actual plan and without violating the Brown act. With the blessing of the Sierra Madre Legal Council, a citizen’s volunteer group (not committee) was formed to assist the Committee. A meeting of this group of volunteers was first held in a private home, with attendant publicity appearing in the Mt. Views News and on the SierraMadreNews.Net, in addition to reminders at City Council Meetings and at the GPUC. This was not a secret meeting -- it was well publicized Thirty-two people attended that meeting and

“Martha Marcy May Marlene” Too Ambitious for its Own Good Film Review By Michael James Gonzalez

“Martha Marcy May Marlene” is a devastatingly authentic portrait of a young woman suffering from what could be post-traumatic stress disorder after she flees a backwoods cult and its sexually abusive leader. No doubt this film will be first time writer/director—and NYU Film School dropout—Sean Durkin’s career launching showpiece. And Elizabeth Olsen’s (younger sister of the Olsen twins) staggeringly good performance as Martha is astonishing for such a young actress. However, the film as a whole never quite reaches its full, psychologicalthriller potential, as Durkin opts for a more open-ended

character study of a very troubled young woman instead of sticking to more conventional storytelling, which leaves too many ambiguities to puzzle over. When Lucy (Sarah Paulson) receives a distraught phone call from her estranged younger sister Martha (Olsen), who has been missing for months, Lucy brings Martha to stay at her and her husband’s (Hugh Dancy) upper-middle class home in Connecticut. But when Martha begins to have flashbacks of her traumatic experience deep in the Catskill Mountains, her fear and paranoia manifest themselves in disturbing behavior that is too terrifying for Lucy

and her husband to handle. In and of itself, the film is certainly something to applaud; the performances are pitchperfect and Durkin elegantly cuts between flashbacks and the present, employing masterful cinematography to photograph the gorgeous Connecticut and Upper New York landscapes. But this film is definitely not for everyone, mainly because it spends almost its entire 120 minutes giving a close-up look (literally and figuratively speaking) of a person in deep despair without providing much of a payoff or hope in the end.

Monrovia Couple Puckers Up for a Return Trip to Hawaii

Javier Rodriguez and Andrea Tapia of Monrovia, are hoping to kiss their way back to Hawaii.

Through Oct. 30, the Battleship Missouri Memorial is inviting couples to “plant one on” while visiting Pearl Harbor for an opportunity to win a return trip to the Hawaiian Islands. Guys and gals reenacting the iconic WWII Times Square picture of a Navy sailor kissing a young nurse can enter to win the getaway. The prize includes roundtrip airfare on Hawaiian Airlines between Hawaii and one of its U.S. Mainland gateway cities and a two-night stay at the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort and Spa. And couples have an outstanding example to guide their reenactments.

“Unconditional Surrender,” a lifescale bronze sculpture by Seward Johnson, artist and son of the founder of Johnson and Johnson, is currently on loan to the Missouri, courtesy of The Sculpture Foundation. His sculpture is touring the country as part of the “Keep the Spirit of ’45 Alive!” initiative, a nationwide, grassroots effort to establish an annual day to honor the achievements of America’s WWII generation so that their courage, self-sacrifice and service will continue to inspire future generations of Americans. Photos of the visitor reenactments are being

posted on the Battleship Missouri Memorial Facebook page (http://www. facebook.com/Battleshipmissouri) for voting. Ten finalists will be chosen on Nov. 7 based on the most “likes” they receive. From the resulting 10 finalist couples, the grand prize winner and runner-up winners will be randomly selected. Winners will be announced on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. For more information and the complete contest rules, visit www.ussmissouri.org. Terms and conditions are subject to change.

La Salle Volleyball Wins Two Consecutive Tournaments

By Bill Peters

Varsity Wins Second Consecutive Tournament and Remains Undefeated in Del Rey Play

Photo by John Blackstock, La Salle High School

On the heels of two consecutive weekend tournament victories, coupled with solid play throughout their league and nonleague schedule, the La Salle Lancers are looking to meet, or improve upon, their impressive Final Four finish in last year’s CIFSouthern Section 2AA playoffs. Winning the Hilltop High Invitational in San Diego October 8, besting 26 teams from Southern California proved to the Lancers that they were improving and benefiting from a rigorous early season schedule that had them facing perennial powers, Lakewood, Notre Dame Academy and St. Lucy’s. They duplicated their fantastic finish in San Diego County by winning the 29th Annual Marlborough Classic this past Saturday, October 15 in Hancock Park, defeating host Marlborough in the Finals. “These in-season tournaments are different than league play matches,” stated first year head coach Tiare Tuitama. “But getting to play another 12 matches in two days over the two weekends allows us to continue to develop our continuity and experience of playing together. Ultimately, it is about more game situations for our team, and our girls have really excelled in doing well in these formats.” The Lancers have also done well throughout league play, currently sit-

ting at 4-0 after a thrilling 5-set win on the road at Bishop Montgomery on Thursday, October 13. Trailing by two sets, the Lancers rallied to win the last three, overcoming a strong Knights team that was also undefeated in league play entering the match. The two teams will meet again at La Salle in the Duffy Lewis Gymnasium on Monday, October 31 at 6:00pm, in a match that could decide the 2011 Del Rey League Championship. “It has been an absolute delight coaching this group of girls. They are an extremely fun, talented and flexible collection of athletes,” stated Coach Tuitama. “They are resilient and have demonstrated time and time again their fortitude and commitment to the team. We look forward to representing La Salle throughout the balance of our league play, as well as continue the momentum into CIF, Division 2 AA playoffs. This team has all of the needed components to be a championship caliber team.” La Salle, a co-ed Catholic college preparatory high school of 750 students, located on the border of Pasadena and Sierra Madre, competes in 22 sports. The girls’ volleyball program, a rising star in the sport over the past several years, is now vying to be considered the strongest program in the San Gabriel Valley,

and continues to benefit from talented players that appreciate the school’s significant educational opportunities, commitment to service and strong overall athletics program. La Salle is back in action this week on Thursday, October 20, when the team travels to Bishop Amat to take on a strong Bishop Amat Lancers program. La Salle will be looking to remain undefeated in League play, as well as undefeated in October, having gone 15-0-1 this month.

Hearing a choir blend beautifully together in song is one of those mysterious things that seem to raise human emotion to the point of tears. The Los Angeles Master Chorale, under the direction of its music director, Grant Gershon, opened the chorale's 48th season Sunday night at Walt Disney Concert Hall achieving an extraordinary vocal excellence, and in some cases, eyes watered-up. The 115-member choir embarked on its latest season with a curriculum of music literature that combined Latin mass with American song offering uplifting and spiritual hymns crafted by mostly contemporary composers. All in all, Los Angeles Master Chorale brought the sound of angel voices. The major work on the program was Morten Lauridsen's "Lux Aeterna", his fivepart work based on the Christian Requiem with touches of Gregorian chants but solidly set in a contemporary mode. The Chorale has presented Mortensen's now famous composition many times over since it was introduced by founding Chorale director Paul Salamunovich in April

of 1997. Gershon, in this performance, has made "Lux Aeterna" ("Eternal Light") his own. Using the Disney Hall organ as accompaniment, with Paul Meier, organist, Gershon used a slightly slower tempo but highlighted the phrasing and brought what he has termed the "lush" sound of the Chorale to absolute perfection. Lauridsen, who was on hand for the performance, accepted a long and cheering welcome from the completely full concert hall following a hushed audience at the conclusion of the piece. "The Lux has reached a new level of brilliance under your masterful direction," Lauridsen posted on the Chorale's Facebook page following rehearsal of the noted music. "I simply have never heard a performance with such insight into my score and such glorious singing… You have found and newly explored very deep layers of this cycle celebrating light." Moverover, Lauridsen writes, he was brought to tears several times." I unapologetically report, so was I. Other works performed on the program included

Thomas Jennefelt's "Music for a Big Church; for tranquility", a piece that focuses on choral blending and chordal effect by having no words, but only "la-la-la's" and "doondoon-doon" among others; a breathtaking "Her Sacred Spirit Soars" by Eric Whitacre; Tarik O'Regan's "Tal vex tenemos tiempo" ("Maybe we have time") based on the poetry of Pablo Neruda (and sensitively directed by newly-named Associate Conductor Leslie Leighton); and "Heavenly Home: Three American Songs" arranged by Shawn Kirchner. Kirchner, a nine-year member of Los Angeles Master Chorale, has an excellent touch in his choral arranging as heard in the alto women's chorus in "Angel band". The Los Angeles Master Chorale season continues on Sunday, Nov. 13 with an intimate concert of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, a new work by James Newton, and LA-born composer David Lang's Pulitzer Prizewinning "the little match girl passion" based on the Hans Christian Anderson story.

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!

Quota Club concept honors those who serve their community as a whole. With that in mind they chose to honor four individuals in the community to work to make Monrovia and Duarte better places to work and live. They are a firefighter, a police sergeant and two elementary school teachers. The first (alphabetically) is Monrovia Firefighter Mike Bailey. He has been a firefighters for the city for eighteen years and does much more than others to improve the professionalism and education of his fellow firefighters. He works with the Santa Ana Community College, Columbia Southern College and Waldorf College to office Associate and Bachelor Degrees for Monrovia firefighters. He is also the co-chair of the firefighters association’s efforts to restore a 1917 Seagrave fire engine which was the first original mechanized piece of fire equipment purchased by the city of Monrovia (it was ordered in 1916 after a devastating fire in the downtown

area). Annette Bossi-Solorzano teaches at Beardslee Elementary School in Duarte. She has been a classroom teacher for the last 38 years during which one thing has always come to the fore: her ability to forge a strong working relationship with the parents of her students. Often this continues even after the students move on from her class. According to her biographer, her greatest gift is her heart. This means that as a genuine person she acts what she believes and is committed o her profession and the community as a whole. Monrovia Police Sergeant Glen Coleman is the third honoree. He has 20 years of service to this city in roles as varied as patrol officer and narcotics sergeant as well as serving as the City’s Community Policing Sergeant, his current role. In this he has work on solution to ensure that gang members move out of this community. He has two Distinguished Service Medals, AA Safety Employee Medal, two Com-

munity Policing Medals and the Foothill Unity Center’s Heart in Hand Humanitarian Award. The final individual being honored is Heather Pocinelli who teaches at Bradoaks Elementary in Monrovia. When asked why she teaches, her response will be that she “loves it” and that she wants to master the skill of teaching. Her true passion in teaches is to teach students to read. As everyone knows this is the key to all education and learning. In her classroom, she is in control while instructing, listening to, and supporting her students in every way. While she is the “newbie” of the honorees with only ten years of service to the community, much more is expected of her in the future. All four were honored at the Quota Club’s annual luncheon which also raises funds for many philanthropic projects. Stueve Memorial Scholarships. For more on the Quota International Club Of Mon

Brokate Lawsuits Costly

Continued from page 1

nance Yard east of the location for the Monrovia Gold Line Station which will be built by the old Santa Fe Station on Myrtle Avenue just north of Duarte Road. “These lawsuits have only achieve a delay the achievement of a public facility and which have been costly only Brokate who brought them and to the city which has had to defend itself from them,” said Monrovia City Manager Scott Ochoa. “Unfortunately the cost is not be borne only by Brokate; he brought the lawsuits,” he continued, but also by the CIty of Monrovia and the tax payers of the city.” Ochoa went on to point out that the costs to the city were often greater than those to the person who brought the lawsuits. He noted that rarely can a city recover attorney fees even when it prevails in a legal action. The first of these suits, filed in February 2010, alleged a violation of the Brown Act by the Planning Commission. The Brown Act requires publicly elected or appointed entities hold their meetings in the open and that their actions be

properly agendized and noticed. This lawsuit was dismissed by the courts, but not until City Attorney Craig Steele had filed a response and incurred various costs and fees in so doing. It has been estimated that this one lawsuit alone may have cost the city as much as $30 to $35 thousand. The next lawsuit filed was in March 2011 against the City of Monrovia and is based on anticipated Breach of Contract by the City. It was brought by attorney Robert Silverstein on behalf of Brokate and Excalibur Holdings, LLC. It is a demand for a Writ of Mandamus, which would prevent the City from taking action on selling City owned property to the Gold Line Extension Construction Authority. The petitioners (Brokate, et al.) maintain that taking such action would result in the City being in Breach of a Settlement Agreement it had reached with Brokate. This settlement concluded and earlier lawsuit by Brokate against the City. This action is on hold pending the resolution of

lawsuits regarding the State of California taking over the local Redevelopment Agencies. Earlier this year the state moved to take over all the assets of local Redevelopment Agencies, but did leave an opening for those local agencies. They could make a huge payment and several subsequent payments over to years to the State to opt out of this takeover. Lawsuits brought by various cities and associations of cities and redevelopment agencies are pending resolutions. Until these are resolved, the city cannot act to breach that settlement agreement simply because its redevelopment agency cannot act at all. According to Ochoa this action will not be moving forward until after the first f the year when a resolution of the lawsuits regarding the status of the redevelopment agencies is anticipated. The third action, filed in July 2011 is a petition by the Christopher Sutton, an attorney representing George Brokate and Excalibur Holdings, LLC. It is an applica-

As the first in a series the Jewish Federation of Greater San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys, the group is presenting “Working: The Musical” an adaptation based on the Studs Terkel book, Working which examines the workday of average Americans with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz who also wrote “Wicked” and “Godspell.” The debut performances were last weekend at the Federation’s headquarters at 550 S. Second Avenue, Arcadia. The first two performances were met with an enthusiastic audience one of whom contacted this newspaper requesting that we review the undertaking. Unfortunately the last two per-

formance will be on this Saturday evening, October 22 at 8 PM and on Sunday afternoon, October 23 at 2 PM. Therefore we are relying on this regular supporter. She reports that the music gives the viewer an inside look at what it means to be the guy who pumps your gas or the woman who waits on your in the coffee shop. Her enthusiastic response to the musical prompted us to contact the backers of the musical. The new program started as a collaboration between Federation Director Jason Moss, Cantor Judy Sofer, who is now the Cultural Arts Program Coordinator, and Dr. Stuart Miller, chairman of the

Federation’s Cultural Arts Committee. They are seeking more input through larger community discussions. According to the Federation among the handful of activities already in the works for the Cultural Arts Program are plays and musical shows, a youth choir, a youth string orchestra, a challah-baking club and a series of coffeehouses to highlight local musicians and artists. “Ultimately, my hope for the programs we run is to raise awareness of this Jewish community,” Moss said, “and to bring people to our classes and events.” To purchase tickets or learn about other cultural events, call (626) 445-0810 or visit jewishsgpv.org.

Dog Haus Relishes One Year Anniversary $1 Hot Dogs Thursday October 20, 2011 Established Pasadena Restaurateurs Hit a Homerun with Gourmet Hot Dogs, Hamburgers and Sausages and Announce Plans to Expand Before End of Year Dog Haus, Pasadena’s go to eatery for an exciting and delicious variety of gourmet hot dogs, sausages, burgers and more, is celebrating its one year anniversary on October 20, 2011 with $1.00 dogs. The “Best of the Würst” is located at 105 North Hill Avenue in Pasadena at the corner of Union and Hill. “We are thrilled with the overwhelming success of Dog Haus and thought what better way to celebrate our one year anniversary than by offering $1.00 hot dogs to our customers,” said Hagop Giragossian, a partner in the restaurant that has won rave reviews from customers and critics alike and is a 2011 Reader Recommended top pick in Pasadena Weekly’s Readers Poll. “Our hard work and commitment to bringing a fresh, fun and casual new dining establishment to the area has paid off many times over.” So much so that Gira-

gossian along with partners Quasim Riaz, André Vener and Robert and Denise Zeilstra plan to open two more locations by the end of this year, one in the heart of Old Pasadena and the other in Alhambra. “Dog Haus quickly became a hit with its unique atmosphere, diverse offerings, dedication to details and commitment to customers,” said Vener who promises to spice things up even more with it’s new locations. “People asked us to expand and we are!. Complete with some surprises... We plan to be in the Dog Haus for many many years to come.” The something-foreveryone menu includes options to build your own creations with more than 40 toppings or choose from; one of Dog Haus' signature Haus Dogs such as the Sooo Cali, featuring mixed greens, diced tomato, tempura fried onions, spicy basil aioli and avocado, or the Downtown

Dog, wrapped in bacon with mayo, mustard, ketchup, sautéed onions and peppers. The ten signature dogs also include the B.L.A.S.T., The Little Leaguer and Grand Slam. Giragossian's desire for a sweet and savory combination led to serving the Haus Dogs on grilled King's Hawaiian Bread instead of traditional buns--a culinary choice that customers rave about. Living up to its reputation as the Best of the Würst, Dog Haus temptations also include a selection of gourmet sausages that range from Andouille, Bratwurst, Italian Chicken, Knockwurst and Spicy Italian to ThreePepper Kielbasa. Dog Haus also features a homemade Curry Wurst that is becoming a favorite with the customers. Also proving to be “best of the burgers”, Dog Haus offers a wide selection of build your own or signature hamburgers such as The

Freiburger, which features their acclaimed beef patty, fresh-cut french fries, cole slaw, fried egg and cheese on grilled Hawaiian bread. Veggie Dogs, Corn Dogs, Chili, Sweet Potato Fries, Tater Tots and It's-It Ice Cream Sandwiches are only a sampling of the many other items on the Dog

Haus menu. "We've also got a secret menu that regulars and those who follow us on facebook or Foursquare can get clued into," notes Zeilstra. Dog Haus also offers an extensive take-out menu, featuring combination packs including the Pick 6, Dirty Dozen and SausageFest.

Students Speak Out for Homeless Vets

Continued from page 1 ers, donations and logistics), showers, clothing, personal hygene, medical, mental assistance and couseling and much needed safe environment to relax and/or sleep for a few hours. We expect over three (300) Veterans, This gives the various agencies to process these Veterans and get them into the system for the services they need, medical and other asistance. So far six City Mayors from Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Baldwin Park, El Monte, West Covina are puting items and donations together for this special project, local law enforcement, military and L. A. County Supervisors will help. If you know of any group or agencies or companies that could help in donations both monetary and product such bath soap, tooth burshes, toothpaste, combs, shampoo, deoderant, towels, etc. plus new clothing slacks, shirts sweaters, windbrakers, socks (lots of them), and/or any food service company that would donate verious meals it would help. The main help we need are volunteers to serve and bus tables after each group of Veterans isfed throughout the day, people that can cook and those that will help break down the donations into packages to dis-

tribute to each veteran. The local Army Reserve units will help in the set-up and breakdown for the day (fo the six Reserve units stationed at this reserve center two have just been deployed to Afhganistan). Here are a few letters from students at the school: Veterans Stand Down “A hand up … not a handout.” By Trevor Thai When I heard of the Veterans Stand Down to be held on October 20, 2011, at Whittier Narrows Park, I was shocked. The Stand Down is something big. It is being held to assist over three hundred homeless veterans from this area. I was shocked to think that there are people who have been willing to give their lives for us, and yet they are now homeless. Twenty-six students from the Temple City Education Center Writing Class are donating blankets to the Veterans who are homeless. These blankets aren’t the best or worst, but they show a sign or symbol that we care about the Veterans. Jimmy, a sixth-grade student who attends Emperor Elementary commented, “I feel bad because they helped out country, and when they returned they were homeless.” My

objective is writing this article is to inspire you to help this major cause. To find out more about how you can help, please call Dr. Frances Siu at (323)470-2631 or contact her at fsiu@calstatela. edu. Dear Veterans, I’m very sorry to hear that some of you are homeless after you fought for our country. I’ve heard that you are having a Stand Down. I know that the blankets are small, but I hope that they will keep your hearts warm.

Brokate Lawsuits

Continued from page 3 tion to the State Attorney General to sue for a Writ of Quo Warranto to determine the right of various individuals to hold office in various cities along the route of the Gold Line while at the same time serving on the Board of the Construction Authority. It alleged that this is a conflict of interest and that the actions of those individuals in the cities and on the Board are invalid. The petition request that the Attorney General’s office give them (Brokate via his attorney, Sutton) leave to act in lieu of the A.G. in pursuing this matter on behalf of the people of the State of California. A Writ of Quo Warranto demands to know (by what right - quo warranto) an individual holds a title or title to real property. The petition, if granted, would allow the petitioners, Brokate and Excalibur Holdings, LLC through their attorney, Sutton to name the eight council members as defendants to name the Gold Line Construction Authority itself as well as the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation and the cities of Azusa, Claremont, Duarte, Glendora, Los Angeles, Monrovia, Pasadena and South Pasadena as real parties in interest. The cities are those whose council members also serve on the Gold Line Board. The cities are obligated to defend the actions of their council members as well as themselves. This action is currently pending with responses due this Friday on the matter. The Attorney General must then make decisions on the matter including whether to follow through itself, allow Sutton to do so on Brokate’s behalf and that of the People of the State, or to deny the petition outright. The fourth action was filed on September 14 regarding compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). It questions the procedure used by the city is its action regarding the Brokate property and redevelopment land. CEQA sets forth specific procedures an entity must follow in order to use that property in certain ways. The lawsuit alleged these procedures were not followed. Again, because of the state of limbo in which the redevelopment agency properties exist, this action in on hold pending the outcome of the litigation regarding the status of the redevelopment

agencies. It is anticipated that this will reach a conclusion early next year. Anticipating resolution of the action at that time, Ochoa said that it was his best estimate that the cost of all these four legal action would reach at least $150,000 by February 2012. To put this in some sort of perspective, this amount of money could purchase and outfit a police patrol vehicle complete with light bar, sirens, computers, decals, etc. According the Chief of Police Jim Hunt, the average life span of a patrol vehicle should be 3-5 years but because of budget constraints that has been stretched to 5-6 years. In addition, that $150,000 would also pay for a patrol officer complete with all benefits and retirement for a single year. And that amount is only the direct cost of the attorney fees and costs (filing fees, service fees, etc.) It does not even begin to discuss the cost of City Staff time in preparing for the lawsuit. This is addition to the regular duties of the Staff at a time when all the department throughout the city have been cut to the bone in regard to staff and budget. As an example, Ochoa cited the CIty Clerk’s office which must respond to requests for documents and information. When contact, Alice Atkins, Monrovia’s CIty Clerk said that to date this year, her office has received eight requests from attorneys representing George Brokate. This may not seem a huge number until a discussion of the details of some of these requests is pursued. For example, in March all correspondence (including e-mails) between all city employees and all the residents at 475 East Duarte Road. This required that members of the city staff dump all their e-mail looking for e-mails sent to the residents at this address. These all needed to be copied with the copies being sent to the city attorney for review. They must be reviewed for confidentially and legality before being released. For example details of pending settlements cannot be disclosed nor can personnel matters. The city’s attorneys must then review all of these and redact privileged portions. What does this cost the individual who made the request for information? Potentially nothing. This information must be provided for review. The documents

can be reviewed at the City Clerk’s office and notes taking. The only charge is if the individual wanted copies of any of the pages. The cost for this is only 25¢ per page. And there is not requirement that any copies be made. In one request for information 7 large file boxes were sent to the City Attorney’s office for review. According to Atkins the information, with the privileged information redacted was then reviewed only with no copies being made. Fortunately in most cases, the information can be reviewed electronically and the redaction done in the same manner. This saves paper, and some time, but is still time consuming and costly. Atkins said that normally Sutton and Silverstein when requesting information also request copies be supplied setting a limit of between $250 and $500 for copies. According to Atkins, this in no way reflects the cost of researching and preparing the documents. All this is in addition to the regular responsibilities of

the Clerk’s Office. And it is being done at a time when they Clerk is dealing with a skeletal force. When Linda Proctor was the City Clerk the office consisted of herself as City Clerk and Atkins as her Deputy City Clerk as well as two full time passport agents/administrative clerks. The office is now staffed by the City Clerk and 1.25 passport agents/admin. clerks (i.e. one full time employee and one person who works only 10 hours per week). Part of the reason for this is that the funding for the passport agent/clerk came from the passport fees. With the downturn in the economy, there is less demand for passports as people are traveling less. And yet, the clerk’s office still manages to respond to all requests in a timely manner. This is only one department’s expense in dealing with these lawsuits. There are other departments whose staff (stretched equally thin) must respond to requests from the public as well as given assistance to the city’s

attorneys as they prepare for the lawsuits. Two examples in the case of the Brokate lawsuits are the Planning Department and the Redevelopment Agency Staff. There is no way to estimate

the expense of preparing for the lawsuits. Simply states these lawsuits are costly...and the cost is being borne by every tax payer.

participated in a lively, open discussion. That meeting was attended by a wide spectrum of citizens including then-Mayor Joe Mosca, Bill Coburn and citizens from all walks of Sierra Madre. Susan Henderson (publisher of the Mountain Views News) expressed her regrets but indicated she intended to be involved. Subsequent volunteer group meetings assisted the GPUC in planning their two Community Forums and these volunteers also assisted in widely disseminating literature, questionnaires, posters, flyers and yard signs. None of this could have been done by the nine mem-

ber committee alone, nor could staff. The hard work by each and every Committee Member, the volunteers and all of the citizens expressing their opinions through the questionnaires, meetings, forums and public hearings will make the General Plan Update a robust document that broadly represents all the interests of the community, indeed, a People’s Document, and we, the people, are not foolish nor are we wrong for our participation.

Reducing Work Time in Jails Continued from page 1 between three and five years before being assigned to patrol. Mayor Antonovich has also appointed retired Judge Dickran Tevrizian, a Pasadena resident who served on the Los Angeles Municipal Court from 1972 to 1978 and served on the California Superior Court in Los Angeles from 1978 to 1982, to the Citizens’ Commission. Nominated by President Ronald Reagan, he was confirmed to a new seat on the United

States District Court for the Central District of California on December 16, 1985. Tevrizian assumed senior status on August 5, 2005, before retiring in 2007. “Through his unique experience and keen judgment, Judge Tevrizian has demonstrated his solid credibility and integrity as a jurist and as a public servant,” said Antonovich. “He will be a valuable asset to this commission.”
