Sierra Madre Home Invasion Robbery in Unincorporated Arcadia Leaves Father of 3 Dead – Police Issue Sketch of Wanted Suspect Resident Convicted in Canada on Smuggling Child Pornography By Terry Miller Sierra Madre Police Capt. Larry Giannone confirmed that well-know local Sierra Madre resident Bob Matheson, 66, was in custody in Canada on child pornography charges. Matheson was arrested by Border Services at the Halifax, Nova Scotia airport October 17. A Sierra Madre detective has been assigned to follow the case to see the implications once Matheson is released and likely deported to the US: i.e. what in fact his status would be. Captain Giannone said he wasn’t absolutely clear on the laws involved when it comes to international situ-

Monrovia Wildcats (11-3) had no power outage when it came to winning back to back CIF-SS Mid Valley Division Championship game title on Saturday Dec 10.

What a way to baptize Monrovia’s new stadium with the first CIF Championship game with over 3,500 fans.

By Dorothy Denne Back in olden times when I was growing up, kids remained innocent longer than they do today. Some would call it innocent. Some would call it ignorant. Some would call it stupid. I call it wonderful. I searched the midnight sky looking for Santa Claus beyond the age that many modern kids are searching the internet for porn movies. I learned very early about Baby Jesus AND about Santa Claus. God had Baby Jesus born on Christmas Day to teach us how to be good little girls and boys. Then his spirit (the Holy Ghost) was around us all the time to help us. Once a year, at Christmas time, God sent Santa down from the North Pole to see if we were listening carefully to what God and Baby Jesus were telling us. Simple? Yeah, but it worked. It made a good little girl out of me -- most

them too. Today Santas arrive in fire trucks, helicopters and limousines. Kids can have breakfast with him at dozens of places, all at the same time. He stands ringing a bell on dozens of street corners, all at the same time. He shows up at dozens of Christmas parties, all at the same time. One minute he is fat and jolly. The next he is skinny and scrawny and his beard has turned to cotton. What's a kid to believe? Who's the real one? How long can kids hang on to innocence? Once they've learned to count, they've lost it. Baby Jesus is politically incorrect and Santa is a fake. Me? I still believe in Baby Jesus. As for Santa Claus, call me innocent, ignorant or stupid, I still believe in him too. I'd like to believe the real one is spending December Saturdays sitting on the courthouse esplanade in Zanesville, Ohio. Save my candy cane, Santa. I'm trying to listen.

of the time. Especially in December. We lived on a farm in my early years. We had no TV or internet. In fact we had no electricity. Our radio was powered by a big battery about the size of an automobile battery. I listened for reports from the North Pole. I didn't realize how far away the kids who lived on the other side of the world really were. Southern Ohio was my whole world. It was perfectly possible to believe that Santa cold make the entire trip in a few hours. There was only one Santa Claus. He came to Zanesville on Saturdays in December and sat by the big Christmas tree on the courthouse esplanade. He must have come really early because he always arrived before the kids who came from all over to talk with him. We bundled up in boots, snow pants, heavy jackets, mufflers and mittens and stood in line in the snow. It was worth it. Santa gave us a candy cane. It was smart to pet the reindeer before you got your candy cane. They liked

Film Review By Michael James Gonzalez If you liked 1987’s “Adventures in Babysitting,” then you may like Jonah Hill’s new film “The Sitter,” that is, if you can imagine a 21st Century version full of drugreferences, slapstick comedy, and disgusting humor. Hill plays Noah, the most unlikely babysitter on the planet, who relents to scoring cocaine in New York City for his trophy girlfriend after accepting to babysit three precocious children who will make his life a living hell. Directed by David Gordon Green, who has become the go-to dude for raunchy comedy after the hit

“Pineapple Express,” the film is at once an overtly crass farce that may offend some adults that actually fall into its target audience—especially if you’re a parent—yet there is enough charm, sweetness, and comedic value here that merits giving the more grossout humor a pass. Despite the movie’s rougher edges, Hill remains likeable as the live-at-home, chubby loser with a heart of gold. The young actors who play the three kids being babysat—if babysitting includes a visit to a coke dealer, robbery, and setting off explosions

throughout New York City— give strong performances as well, each displaying their own little, off-kilter personalities. “The Sitter” as a whole, however, is neither as funny nor as interesting as the kind of Chris Columbus or John Hughes comedies of the 80s that it aspires to be. Its choppy plot fails to be sufficiently coherent, the characters are underdeveloped, and the genre mashing of feel-good story/toilet humor comedy make Green’s direction seem more indecisive than innovative.

When All Is Said And Dunn By Bill Dunn Well it was very nice to see that the San Gabriel Valley got a little press during the last couple of weeks. As they say, “any press is good press”. Here in Los Angeles County this area is primarily ignored by most of the news outlets unless it pertains to something horrific or a major league political scandal. To be honest, the last political brouhaha we had here, Temple City’s bribery dust up, was hardly a blip on the radar. That was until early in the morning of Thursday the 6th of December. The weathermen on the news had given us a brief warning. We were going to be getting some fairly strong winds, but their warning didn’t come with the usual relish and apoca-

lyptic doom that usually accompany reports pertaining to any change in our weather. So I was a little concerned as I heard the escalating gusts outside my window around midnight. The wind chimes were working extra hard and suddenly I started hearing some of the potted plants leaving their perches on the walls. This was not the usual Santa Ana winds that I was used to hearing this time of year. It was time to put down the patio umbrella before it started doing a Mary Poppins impersonation. Once outside, my suspicions were confirmed. After my task was complete I made a hasty return to my bed. Hopefully I would awake to a couple of barrels full of leaves and that would be the end of it. Boy was I wrong. At approximately 1:36 a.m., my wife and I were awakened once again by the winds and as soon as our eyes opened all signs of light went out. There was nothing to do but set the cell phone as an alarm clock for work in the morning and hope for the best. When we got up later that Thursday the power was still off and it was as though we had landed in Oz. When I opened my

front door the pile of leaves and cypress tree droppings created a leafy version of a snow drift. While I viewed this at that moment as disastrous, I had no idea the level of the destruction I was in for beginning with the Gingko tree in my backyard which split and blew over due to the force of the winds. Fortunately it fell in my yard and neither one of my neighbors’ yards. Once on my way to Glendale the fallen trees and vast amounts of debris that littered the streets made my journey more like a ride at Disneyland than a morning commute. My usual route through the side streets of northern San Gabriel and east Pasadena was blocked at every turn by huge fallen trees and branches that were bigger than my car. The biggest shock came at the corner of San Gabriel & Colorado Boulevards with the sight of the crushed Shell gas station. Obviously the surrealism of this vision wasn’t lost on me alone. The corner was surrounded by TV news vans and appeared on the front pages of newspapers the following day. The image became the symbolic poster child for this event. As anybody who lives in this area will tell you the

next week would be trying on everyone’s patience. We would wake every morning to a symphony of chain saws and refrigerators of spoiling food. Those of us who were lucky had our power back in a few days, others it took a week. Many were calling for the heads of their city councils and local Edison/Water & Power officials with equal venom. While there were death threats made to Water & Power workers on the street by octogenarians in Pasadena, things were looking even uglier here in the City of Temple. In a town that many still refer to as Mayberry, the villagers were sharpening their pitchforks and getting ready to storm the castle, I mean city hall. Then, as if by magic, the balance shifted back to the majority having power instead of the other way around. People who had abandoned their homes so they could access their Facebook accounts at nearby hotels, returned. The pitchforks were put back into their outlines on the walls of the garages and the refrigerators were restocked. Life was good again in the land of Andy, Opie, and Aunt Bee.

JC’S COMICS Three champions in the faith -- Louis Zamperini, John Naber, and Dr. Billy Graham. -Courtesy Photo

There are champions in the faith that can lift your spirits, help you overcome your problems and give you a fresh new beginning in your life! These three gentlemen in the faith can just do that! Our country looks to heroes and we have them in this trio of overcomers and achievers. Currently we have seen news reports about Dr. Billy Graham conquering pneumonia. Dr. Graham has written over 30 books. Many can be found on Amazon.com as well as at most bookstores in your community. As I grew up in Minneapolis Dr. Graham was a leading figure. I went to one of his crusades as a teenager and was inspired to change my life for the better. Are you going through some life’s challenges? This is a good time to pick up one of Dr. Graham’s books. Most of his writing is from the Bible. A very remarkable individual that I had a chance to meet was Louis Zamperini.

His life story is in the bestseller “Unbroken” by Laura Hillenbrand currently in the top ten best sellers for the 53rd week. This man overcame such ordeals in his life that would have broken most of us. He conquered being a prisoner of war, an airplane crash, 47 days in the ocean, and more. He ran in the 1936 Olympics for the United States and had a personal audience with Adolf Hitler. He received Christ in a Billy Graham crusade in Los Angeles in 1947. Currently he is on a nationwide tour talking to countless groups of admirers of his faith, tenacity, and iron will. You can find his book on Amazon.com. The third man of faith and character is my long time friend John Naber, Olympic champion in 1976 where he won 4 gold medals and one silver in swimming. John is an outstanding motivational speaker and will be working as a reporter for ABC TV covering this year’s Rose Parade. John

and I have worked together on fitness routines that helped him in his running, racquetball, rebounding, weight training and overall fitness. His wonderful book “Awaken the Olympian Within” can be found on Amazon.com. What can we learn from these three men of faith? These men looked to God and Christ to provide protection, guidance, direction, and courage to face life’s challenges. Are you in need of some encouragement and direction? Please pick up one of the outstanding books that these men have written. You will be very glad you did! Harry and Sarah Sneider have been trainers, motivators, and educators for the last 43 years. They are known for their positive attitudes as well as world class instruction in the area of fitness and health. Give them a call at 626-355-8964 or email harrysneider@earthlink.net.

$40,000 Structure Fire in Arcadia On Tuesday, December 13, 2011, at 7:49 a.m. Arcadia Fire Department responded to a structure fire in the 200 block of East Haven Avenue in the City of Arcadia. Engine 105, Engine 107, Truck 105, Rescue Ambulance 105, Battalion 105, and Monrovia Fire Department Engine 101 and Truck 101 responded to the scene. Upon arrival, firefighters witnessed heavy smoke showing from the attic of

a single-story single-family dwelling. Fire crews immediately began suppression operations, accomplishing knockdown within ten minutes of arrival. The fire was confined to the area of origin. The tenants of the involved structure were not at home at the time of the incident; however, the property owner was contacted and responded to the scene. Also on scene were representatives from

Arcadia Police Department, Southern California Edison, The Gas Company and Animal Control. Three animals were found expired in the home, having succumbed to smoke inhalation. The fire appears to be accidental in nature and remains under investigation at this time. Total loss is estimated to be approximately $40,000. No persons were injured during this incident.

The most exciting Bowl Game of the season takes place tomorrow evening, December 16 starting at 5 p.m. on ESPN2. Don’t worry about the calendar, this is not the Rose Bowl or the BSC championship or even the Super Bowl. This is the Biggie, the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl, the Division III Championship Game from Salem, Virginia. This is the way a championship game should be played. Division III football allows no athletic scholarships, in fact most of the schools involved have stadiums so small, they don’t even have lights. The students are truly scholar athletes who play for the love of the game, not the money they will make in professional ball down the road somewhere. Therefore, it is some of the best football to be seen all year. The last 6 Stagg Bowls have featured Mount Union (winning in 2005, 2006, and 2008) against WisconsinWhitewater (winning in 2007, 2009, and 2010), as will the 2011 Stagg Bowl on December 16, 2011. This is the longest running championship rivalry in all NCAA sports. No other sport has had more

head to head battles pitting the same two teams for the National Championship on any level in any sport. This is a true down to the bone rivalry. And the scores over the years show it. Usually the difference between winner and loser is 10 points or less. This year, both team go into the game having won three of the last six championships. This is a game well worth watching. These players are in the game for the love of it and the pride of their schools. But who was Amos Alonzo Stagg? Ever hear of the onside kick, the tackling dummy, the Statue of Liberty play? What would football be without hip pads or padded goalposts (other than less safe)? Stagg invented them all. And Cal’s would never have had THE PLAY against Stanford years ago without Stagg. He came up with the lateral pass. Stagg was a player and a coach when football was in its infancy. He was an active coach longer than any other in the history of the sport. His career spanned over seven decades. Born in 1862, he played end at Yale when football was little more than

a strange form of English Rugby with a oddly shaped ball. He also played baseball for Yale leading them to 5 conference championships. He coached not just football, but basketball and baseball as well as track and field. He was even an assistant coach for the U.S. Olympic track and field teams in the twenties and thirties. Stagg started coaching professionally in 1890 at Williston Seminary, a secondary school. He was also a volunteer coach at the local college. He is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame as both an player and a coach, the first person to earn that honor. He completed his coaching career on September 16, 1960, when he announced his resignation from his position at Stockton Junior College as an advisory coach. He was 98. Stagg died in his sleep in a Stockton nursing home on March 17, 1965 at age 102. So watch a bit of history and a good game tomorrow evening. In the interest of honesty in the press, I admit I have become Purple Raiders fan, so go Mt. Union.

Dr. Matthew Lin Launches Campaign for State Assembly

Pasadena Community Foundation and Pasadena Beautiful Establish Tree Fund Pasadena Community Foundation and Pasadena Beautiful have collaborated to establish the Pasadena Windstorm Tree Fund for the purchase and re-planting of the trees lost in Pasadena during the devastating windstorm, which struck our City on November 30 and December 1. Over 800 trees were lost and countless damaged. Pasadena Community

Foundation will match up to $10,000 in donations to the fund. All donations to Pasadena Beautiful Foundation are tax deductible and 100% of every dollar donated will be used for the sole purpose of re-planting trees. The City of Pasadena is very pleased and thankful that the two organizations are working together. Pasadena Beautiful has

a 50 year history of working with the City to plant trees and protect our urban forest. The average cost to replace a tree is $350. Gifts of any amount are welcome. Donations may be made online at: www.pasadenabeautiful.org Donations may be mailed to: Pasadena Beautiful Foundation 140 South Lake Avenue, Suite #268 Pasadena, CA 91101

Now, California has a problem, and Dr. Lin is the man of my choice to take care of the problems for us,” said Los Angeles Sheriff Lee Baca. Dr. Lin, a recognized expert in orthopaedic sur-

gery, has practiced medicine in the San Gabriel Valley for more than 33 years. He previously has served as Chief of Surgery and Chief of Staff at Garfield Medical Center.

Arcadia Woman's Club Christmas Luncheon a Jolly Affair The historic clubhouse looked like a sparkling jewel on December 7, boasting 10 lighted trees, small and large, throughout, with eight additional tiny lighted trees, one on each table made by Phyllis Bird and her committee. The pre-Christmas luncheon reception included champagne, wine and egg nog. A traditional Christmas ham luncheon was served. The musical program from the First Avenue Middle School was enjoyed. The choir is a part of a comprehensive music program that includes two symphonic bands, drumline, two symphony orchestras, concert choir, and two rock bands. Over 500 of the 800 students participate in music. Their director,

Michael Danielson is now in his 25th year as music director at First Avenue. He has twice been selected for Profiles in Excellence by The Arcadia Unified School District and in 2010 won the National Education Association’s Foundation Award for Teaching Excellence for the State of California. Closing the festivities, President Barbara Lampman, with past President Shirley Heimbruch, led the members in several holiday favorites in a community sing. Members of the club will again furnish Christmas dinner for seniors in need. They also collected and contributed food for Arcadia’s White Christmas.

The Social Whirl Melissa Manchester Stars in It Was a Holiday Gay Men's Chorus of LA's Extravaganza for SGVMT Holiday Spectacular The San Gabriel Val- plause applause for producThe renowned Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA) spices up the season with two performances of its annual holiday spectacular, “Naughty & Nice,” featuring the 200-voice chorus and special guest Grammy Awardwinning singer/songwriter, actress and composer Melissa Manchester, hailed as an “icon” (Huffington Post) and a “heart-on-her-sleeve singer-songwriter (Toronto Sun), Saturday, December 17, 8 p.m., and Sunday, December 18, 2010, 3 p.m., at the Alex Theatre in Glendale. Artistic Director E. Jason Armstrong conducts a sleighful of beautifully arranged holiday classics, sing-alongs, hand bells, and special holiday faire, both humor-

ous and poignant, replete with dazzling choreography. The family friendly concert opens GMCLA’s 2011-12 season, its 33rd. In addition, GMCLA returns to an old tradition of holding a “Community Prelude,” a fully staged dress performance (without the guest star and fewer numbers) on Saturday, December 17, 3 p.m., at the Alex Theatre. Community Prelude tickets are $15 general admission for all seats. Tickets range from $15-$55 and are available online at www.gmcla.org. For more information, call (800) MEN-SING (800-6367464). The Alex Theatre is located at 216 N. Brand Ave., Glendale.

ley Music Theatre, which recently presented the hit Broadway show “Flower Drum Song,” hosted a wonderful “Holiday Extravaganza” on December 10 at 6 p.m. at the San Gabriel Country Club. Guests enjoyed an elegant find dining experience while being serenaded into the holiday spirit by stars of the music theatre at the scenic country club. The evening included door prizes, raffle items, amazing cuisine and outstanding music creating a festive atmosphere, that was appreciated by the guests, many of whom are long-time supporters of the SGVMT. Spotted among guests were council members from neighboring cities, Rotary members from Arcadia and San Marino; director/ producer Bobby Hundley, and Ray Rochelle, artistic director who deserves ap-

ing this outstanding event, also President Sally Baldwin who, unfortunately, was at home ill. One wonders why the City of San Gabriel does not appreciate this valuable organization. Formed in 2004, the San Gabriel Valley Music Theatre’s mission is to preserve and present Broadway musicals in the San Gabriel Valley. They have presented a broad range of high quality musical events at affordable prices at the historic San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. They will be presenting “An Evening of Andrew Lloyd Webber,” featuring some of the greatest hits of Broadway’s legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber at a new location in February 2012.

gram at its meeting on December 12 at the Church of the Good Shepherd’s Jordan Hall, 400 W. Duarte Rd., Arcadia. Socializing and refreshments were enjoyed.

The Huntington Medical Foundation Pasadena’s Premier Medical Group Since 1994, the Huntington Medical Foundation (HMR), a group of 60 local physicians of various specialties, has been providing expert medical care to the families of Pasadena. This “homegrown” physician group accepts almost every major health plan and is affiliated with Huntington Memorial Hospital – but what really distinguishes HMF is the group’s mission to provide a collaborative healthcare experience. “Our partnership with Huntington Hospital and our investment in a sophisticated platform for electronic health records ensures our patients the most optimal level of care available in our region,” said Wendy Karsten, chief executive officer of HMF. And collaboration is king when it comes to the future of healthcare in America. As the nation hurtles toward reform deadlines, it is vital healthcare organizations like hospitals and medical practices align themselves in a care delivery

system that includes the creation of web-based information exchange, or the confidential sharing of healthcare information between local providers. This exchange ultimately translates to less duplication and redundancy, greater efficiencies, higher patient satisfaction and better care. HMF has implemented electronic health records and is already noticing the efficiencies. “We are able to electronically track physician orders including medical tests and procedures. We can interact electronically with local pharmacies – a huge step forward in reducing medication errors. We have the ability to transmit medical information to the hospital emergency department or consulting physician specialists. It’s amazing to witness the difference electronic records are making make when it comes to patient care,” said Karsten. “We know that in the near future, medical groups, in conjunction with hospitals, will be responsible

for patients before, during and after a hospital stay or a specific medical incident. We get this and we are positioned to move in the right direction with our Huntington Hospital partner.” Currently HMF is responsible for 100,000 “lives,” within its seven offices, making it the dominant Pasadena-based physician group. Unlike Healthcare Partners and other Los Angeles-based medical groups, HMF confines its offices to the San Gabriel Valley’s Pasadena, La Canada and Arcadia. Those interested in joining the region’s premier medical group and gaining access to HMF’s exceptional physicians, should visit www.huntingtonmedical. com and check out a physician directory that includes photos and biographical information for every affiliated doctor. For more information about the Huntington Medical Foundation, contact Huntington Hospital public relations at (626) 397-5464.

Wildcats Win Second Title in a Row

Continued from page 1

Portantino Calls for Emergency Planning from Public Utilities Recent Wind Disaster Highlights Need to be Better Prepared

Wildcats, fans, coaches and the principal celebrate the victory Saturday.

Monrovia had worthy opponents for the first 25 minutes 14-14. The power was restored when the offensive line started blocking. This was the key to the victory and penalties were eliminated. The stars did their part with Marquise Bias #2 leading with a powerful rushing attack, who finished with 259 yards and scored on runs of 11, 6, 1 and 8 yards. De’Shawn Ramirez #3, who was not part of 2010 championship team, had three powerful touchdowns and 134 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown in the diminishing minutes. Monrovia Quarterback Blake Heyworth completed 9 of 15 passes for 102 yards, including a 20 yard touchdown pass to Ramirez. Byrant Mason kicked a 35 yard field goal in the fourth quarter. Luke Williams three catches and 32 yards with an interception. Offensive linemen

Kevin Spencer, Isaac Miravet, Will Thorn, Josh Cano and Henry Crane were unsung heroes throughout the playoffs. Andy Guerrero, San Gabriel’s quarterback gave the Wildcats frenzy from the beginning. Monrovia’s two outstanding defensive linemen, Ellis McCarthy and George Frazier V meted out devastation on Alex Villalobos, which took him out of the game and the rest was history. Guerrero was held to 19 yards rushing on 10 carries and he completed 18 of 31 passes for 204 yards and two touch downs. Villalobos caught 22- and 15- yard touchdown passes in the second quarter. When the game ended, the players relished in their moment of victory. They gave thanks to the coaching staff, parents, and the support of the fans. The underlying thread was dedicated

to the community and the great coaching staff that taught them how similar the game of football is to life. The team dedicated the football season to offensive lineman Yohan DeSilva. A special thank you to Team CrossFit Academy of Monrovia for the eight weeks of Football Specific Training Program during 2010 and 2011. Coach Ryan Maddox and the coaching staff have changed the face of Monrovia’s Football with two back to back CIF -SS Mid Valley Division Championship and Blue chip talent on the team. Monrovia started off 1-3 as some people doubted the team, but the team persevered and stuck to the game plan that led them to a repeat CIF Championship title once again. Wildcats it was a pleasure capturing your moment of glory. Let’s do it again.

In the wake of the recent wind disaster that caused major damage throughout the San Gabriel Valley, Assemblymember Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) has proposed legislation to improve emergency and disaster preparedness by California’s public utilities. The proposed bill calls on each utility to report with every county in its service area every two years for the purpose of reviewing, updating and improving their emergency disaster and preparedness plans. “We just saw firsthand that our public utilities can do a better job. Clearly, they were not prepared for a disaster of this magnitude. We need to use the recent wind disaster to improve our readiness and better prepare for future

disasters such as a large earthquake. Having a review every two years will force better coordination, better service and better public safety.” commented Portantino. The proposed bill asks counties to inform cities within their jurisdiction about each meeting so that cities and the public can provide input into emergency planning. The legislation also calls on the California Public Utilities Commission to use its regulatory authority to set preparedness standards; for example, the use of weather reports to preposition manpower and equipment before a storm and methods of improving communication between government agencies and the public. “We learned some

things from this calamity that will forever change the way we look at these disasters,” added Portantino. “Like most ratepayers, I know that a portion of my bill is intended to pay for emergency preparedness and response; let’s make sure it does. A review every two years will hold utilities accountable, increase coordination, public awareness and scrutiny. It’s a practical and prudent course of action.” The bill is being written as an “urgency measure” and would go into effect once it’s signed by the Governor. It would require that California public utilities conduct these disaster preparedness meetings within 3 months of the legislation becoming law.

“Hook, Line & Sinker.”

The Board of Supervisors approved an amendment to the County’s state legislative agenda by Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich to support an extension of Laura’s Law scheduled to sunset January 1, 2013. Laura’s Law is a proactive, compassionate program providing medical treatment for the County’s mentally ill. “It is vital that this lifesaving program be extended to help the mentally ill recover and live productive lives,” said Antonovich. Laura’s Law reformed the Lanterman-Petris-Short Law, which prohibited judges, families, and physicians from compelling the severely mentally ill to accept treatment. A pilot program initiated

by Antonovich in Los Angeles County has successfully stabilized and reintegrated participants back into the community with a 78% reduction in incarcerations and a 77% reduction in hospitalizations. These reductions cut the costs to the community and taxpayers by almost 40% and significantly improved the lives of program participants. Laura’s Law is patterned after New York State’s Kendra’s Law, has shown tremendous success after just five years. Data conclusively demonstrates that assisted outpatient treatment significantly reduces severe consequences for participants: 74% fewer people experienced homelessness

77% fewer experienced psychiatric hospitalization 83% fewer experienced arrest 87% fewer experienced incarceration 55% fewer attempted suicide or self-harm 49% fewer abused alcohol 48% fewer abused drugs 57% fewer physically harmed others 43% fewer threatened others with physical harm 46% fewer damaged or destroyed property The County’s state legislative agenda is scheduled to be considered at the Board of Supervisors’ next regular meeting on Tuesday December 20, 2011.

Monday evening Dec 12 , the family was returning to their home on the 11000 block of Kristi Court, in Arcadia when they were surprised by an armed light-skinned Hispanic male who had apparently been waiting for the family to return. As the family entered the garage of the residence, the man confronted the family, pointed a hand gun at them and demanded money. Fearing for their safety, the victims gave the gunman the only money they had in their possession, their rent money. Determined they had more money inside the house, the gunman demanded entry and ordered the family into their residence. Once inside the residence, the gunman directed the mother and her two sons, ages 3 and 5 and 6yr old daughter into a bedroom. The victims were instructed to shut the door and

not to exit the room. The gunman then gave the father more commands for cash and shortly thereafter, several gunshots were heard by the family. They exited the room and found the male victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The suspect left the residence prior to the family finding the victim. The suspect was described as a 30 - 35 year old, light-skinned Hispanic man. On Tuesday morning workers from Emergency Response Crime Scene Cleanup were seen entering the Garage of the home in Arcadia and spoke with a male inside the home who was the presumtive lanlord of the home but no one spoke with the mass of media at the scene attempting to get more information. One neigbor who prefered to remain anoymous said she had never seen the children at the house and

thet the family kept to themselves where most everuone on Kristi Court knew one another. Detectives’ are seeking the public’s assistance in solving this crime. Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. If you prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call “Crime Stoppers” by dialing (800) 222-TIPS (8477), or texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or by using the website http://lacrimestoppers. org.Anyone with information is asked to contact Sheriff’s homicide Bureau at 323-8905500

Coldwell Banker Agents Annual Rescue Mission Trip Slated On Monday December 19th, Dean Griffith and a group of real estate agents from Coldwell Banker’s Arcadia Regional Office will make their annual holiday trip to the Los Angeles Union Rescue Mission. Dean and his fellow agents are collecting clothes, blankets, toys, and any cash or checks that you would like to donate to the Mission. Last year they collected 5 truckloads of clothing & blankets and ap-

proximately $2000 in donations for the mission. The annual “Trip to the Mission” was started 24 years ago by Bruce Pfeiffer, an agent in Coldwell Banker’s Arcadia Regional Office. After 20 years of leading the trip to the mission, Bruce handed over his duties to Dean. The Union Rescue Mission’s efforts are focused on reducing homelessness throughout LA County and specifically Skid Row. Cur-

rently, Los Angeles County has 3% of the nation’s total population, but 10% of its homeless population. Coldwell Banker’s Arcadia Regional Office is located at 15 E Foothill Blvd in Arcadia and you can bring your donations into the office until Monday December 19th at 9:00am. If you need assistance or would like your donations to be picked up you can contact Dean Griffith at (626) 664-9163.

Windstorm Debris Returned as Free Mulch The recent hurricaneforce windstorm that rocked Pasadena has finally yielded one benefit: free mulch for gardens. Green debris taken by residents to two drop-off points has been ground up and will be returned to those locations starting this week as free mulch available to any Pasadenan with a shovel and something with which to carry the mulch. Mulch will be available daily from Dec. 16 to 29, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Eaton Blanche Park, 3100 E. Del

Mar Blvd., in the parking lot on Millicent Way; and Robinson Park, 1081 N. Fair Oaks Ave., in the parking lot on Morton Street. Mulch is an important organic protective cover placed over soil to help retain moisture, return nutrients, discourage weed growth and encourage seed germination and healthy plant growth. To prevent contamination of mulch, residents are reminded that yard waste must never contain any nongreen items such as mattresses, fence material, roof

shingles or other debris. In addition to a great deal of free mulch, the unprecedented amount of storm debris has led to an increase in illegal dumping on streets, in parks and public rights of way. Pasadena Police are on the lookout for illegal dumping and will issue citations. For more information about green debris collection and free mulch, contact Environmental Programs Manager Gabriel Silva at (626) 744-4721.

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!

POLICE BLOTTERS Arcadia PD

For the period of Sunday, December 4, through Saturday, December 10, the Police Department responded to 967 calls for service of which 117 required formal investigations. The following is a summary report of the major incidents handled by the Department during this period. Sunday, December 4: At about 6:59 a.m., an officer was dispatched to the 200 block of West Foothill Boulevard in regards to a female victim in distress. While walking through her residence, the victim noticed the front door was open and attempted to close it when an unknown suspect walked up behind her and pushed the door closed. The suspect, described as a male adult with light or medium complexion, short dark hair, wearing a black long sleeve shirt and black bandana over his face, took money from the victim’s wallet and bedroom. The suspect pushed the victim into a bedroom closet and eventually fled undetected. Through investigation, the officer determined the suspect forced entry into the home by breaking a glass window pane. At approximately 4:57 p.m., an officer responded to H&M at the Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, in reference to a juvenile detained for theft. The suspect was observed damaging a pair of jeans by attempting to remove the security sensor. The suspect then removed the security sensor from a sweater, put it on, and left the store without making payment. The 16-year-old Hispanic male was cited and released to his mother. Monday, December 5: Shortly after 8:15 a.m., an officer was dispatched to the 1900 block of South Seventh Avenue, in regards to a vehicle burglary report. The victim discovered the rear passenger side window of his car had been smashed, which he left parked in his driveway overnight. Numerous items were reported stolen. Around 12:34 p.m., an officer responded to Express at the Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, in reference to

a grand theft report. The store manager explained that on December 4th, between 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., unknown suspect(s) stole sixty-one men’s shirts from the front display inside the store. The store was overcrowded and no one saw the theft. Tuesday, December 6: At about 10:47 a.m., an officer responded to the 1200 block of South Golden West Avenue regarding a fire assist. Dispatch advised a large amount of smoke was seen coming from an apartment building.

Lives Remembered

City of Arcadia Notices

Hal McClintock , 91 Hal McClintock , 91, of Pasadena passed away rather suddenly on Saturday December 10 from complications following a fall at home. With paralysis of the legs and a complicated fracture in the neck it was deemed inoperable at his age, according to surgeons. Hal McClintock has lived with love of his life, Bernice Miller of Pasadena, since 1992. Bernice and Hal first met at a bereavement group after they both lost their respective spouses one year earlier. For the next 19 .5 years, Hal and Bernice were inseparable. Moving in together and forming a new relationship that many of their friends said simply was just “meant to be.” The outgoing couple attended many community events in Sierra Madre and Arcadia as well as Pasadena with friends they made at the Support Group. They formed a splinter group they lovingly called the “Corrupt

Group” with some of the other people with whom they had forged a very unique and rare bond. One of their favorite outings was the annual Sierra Madre Fourth of July Cel-

ebration. The group had the same prime location at the beginning of the parade and became part of the party.. Hal’s professional life saw him as an avid photojournalist and wedding photographer. He also worked as an engineer for the Railroads and the famous Red Car of years gone by.

Over the years Hal documented his love of trains with an exceptional passion and was working on compiling a selection of his locomotive images for possible publication prior to his death. Hal McClintock’s other passions in life, aside from his number one… Bernice, included golf , his wonderful Chihuahua “BEEJ”, online poker ( not for real money, of course ) and, of course anything connected with photography which sometimes included photographing beautiful models. Politically savvy, McClintock became increasing frustrated with the Republican led Congress and its inability or refusal to work with President Obama. His outgoing personality and love of life will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing Hal. There will be an Irish Wake celebrating his life in February.

Bob Matheson Convicted in Canada Continued from page 1 ations like this but likely that Matheson would be considered a sex offender and have to register as such. Matheson was sentenced in a Canadian court to 108 days for possessing and smuggling child pornography across an international border, according to reports for a Novia Scotia newspaper. Robert William Matheson, 66, of Sierra Madre pleaded guilty Tuesday in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia Provincial Court to possessing and smuggling child pornography. Immediately admitting guilt brought a slightly lesser sentence, according to Crown Court officials. A search of Matheson’s laptop turned up 2,500 photographs and 280 video clips of teenage boys either standing naked or engaged in sex acts with other boys. According to the Chronicle Herald, a local paper in that area, the computer also contained written stories about sexual activities between a 10-year-old boy and his uncles, grandfather and father, and between the boy and other men such as priests and schoolteachers. Matheson, who owns a home in Pictou, Canada, was subjected to a secondary search by border officers at Halifax Stanfield International Airport on Oct. 17. According to Chris Hansen, Director of Nova Scotia Public Prosecution Service, Matheson was under house arrest when he was released on his own recognizance Oct 26 after agreeing to multiple restrictions including remain-

ing in his Pictou cottage from 10pm to 7am and numerous restrictions including no access to internet, revocation of passport and not to be anywhere near a public park or school where children may be located. He agreed to return to court for sentencing Tuesday December 13. From the original 3 charges, he was convicted of possession of child pornography and of smuggling under the Customs Act. The stories found on Matheson’s computer “were disturbing because they went a great deal beyond the line of … describing sexual relations with children,” according to Provincial Crown Attorney records. “By the very nature of the descriptions, these stories appeared to advocate sex with children.” Matheson is retired from the U.S. military and served as a radio announcer for many years overseas and at March Airforce Base. Matheson has

no previous criminal record. “Your Honour, this is certainly a regrettable circumstance,” Matheson told Judge Flora Buchan according to the local newspaper. “While there were files on my computer, there were many of those files that I never read. They were downloaded years ago, I forgot about them and I regret bringing them into the country.” Matheson gave up the laptop and provided a sample of his DNA for a national databank. Matheson may only serve one month, according to a source at the Halifax, Nova Scotia Constabulary depending on his disposition in prison. Once released from Canadian authorities and deported to the United States, Matheson could face additional charges in the United States and faces possible arrest upon his return to US soil. He will be unable to return to Canada.
