Pasadena's Petrizzi Family Enjoys Life to the Fullest

By Susan Motander Despite the fact that the Gold Line Construction Authority (GLCA) has reached an agreement with George Brokate and his wife Diana over the sale of their property to the Authority, the way is still not completely clear for the building of the Gold Line Maintenance Yard in Monrovia. The City of Monrovia in its own right holds title to part of the land needed. In addition, the now defunct Monrovia Redevelopment Agency (MRA) also owned part of the land needed. The City has appointed itself the Successor Agency to the MRA and as such should be able to negotiate for the sale of that land. However, there are obstacles to closing the deal. According to Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz, prior to the State Legislature forcing the turn over of

On February 12, 2012, at 10:00 p.m., Pasadena Police responded to a residence in the 100 block of W. Del Mar Blvd., after receiving a call of a suspected domestic violence battery. The investigation revealed sufficient probable cause to warrant the arrest of Marston Hefner for domestic violence battery on his 22 year live-in girlfriend. The victim sustained minor injuries. The victim was issued an Emergency Restraining Order. 2011 Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair obtained a three-day emer-

Dorothy's Place

By Dorothy Denne They say growing old is not for sissies and I'm learning that is true. However it can be humorous, especially as you observe it in someone else. I was sitting in the foyer of Coco's Restaurant on Baldwin waiting for my friend. An old man and an older man came through. The old man slapped the older man on the shoulder and hollered, "I guess she was right. Hell, I can't handle things any more that involve fine print. I can't see to read the damn stuff." They both laughed

myself. The older man, who could barely walk, crawled and stumbled into his new but fender-dented Chrysler. The engine roared and he had his youth back. He looked nowhere. He just threw it in reverse, hit the gas mightily and ripped straight back. I chuckled to myself. A young one, who was coming along in his four-wheeler, slammed on the brakes and laid on the horn. The older man obviously didn't hear too well or the shock would have sent him all the way to Kingdom Come. I don't think he saw too well either 'cause he just smiled and waved in response to the young man's obscene gesture. He nodded a thank you to the young man and then shot

young guy sat there, threw both hands in the air and shook his head. I chuckled to myself. Now the old man from the previous conversation came around the corner in his vintage pickup, honked his horn and motioned to the young man to get out of the way. The young one stuck his arm out the window and repeated his earlier obscene gesture. The old man maybe couldn't read fine print but he could see the gesture. He returned it. The kid moved on and the old man smiled a satisfied smile. I chuckled to myself. My friend walked up, handed me some change and said, "Next time you better pay the bill. I can't read that fine print." I laughed out loud.

Recently at the Los Angeles Fit Expo thousands of people were entertained by the World’s Strongest Men Competition. The World’s Strongest Men appear on ESPN regularly lifting cars, refrigerators, Atlas Stones, as well as pulling planes, trucks, and even trains. I grew up with two brothers, Karl and John, who were outstanding football players as well as great weightlifters. They both could lift over 600 lbs in the deadlift, this is pulling the bar from the floor to their waist. My specialty was the press behind the neck, seated, 275 lbs. Later I went on to break the world record in the bench press at 432.5 lbs at age 61. This lift was done in the Senior Olympics Competition in Arcadia, California in our fitness center. Karl Gillingham from Northfield, Minnesota, comes from a family of the greatest brothers’ deadlifters in weightlifting history. Each of the brothers has lifted over 700 lbs in the deadlift. Brother Brad is a world record holder, he has lifted over 880 lbs, and brother Wade has lifted 700 lbs and as well as Karl. Their father, Gale Gillingham was an all-pro lineman of the Green Bay Packers winning Super Bowl team. We went to the Univesity of Minnesota together in

the 60’s. These Minnesotans are truly legends of power and strength. I’ve known Karl and Dave for a number of years from the Strongman Competitions where I try to encourage them to break records. Dave Ostlund is not yet 30 years of age. He is currently recovering from a knee injury. He has been in the top three competitors in the world in Strongman. His power is incredible. He has carried over 400 lbs in each hand in the Farmers Walk as well as pulling an airplane by a rope over 100 feet. His future looks very bright. In a recent comment he said, “I will be back in competition hopefully by this summer.” Lessons these Strongmen can teach us: 1. Have a goal. They started very young and trained to be

the best that they could be…world champions. 2. Start where you are and work with what you have. You may become a champion, too, in your field of endeavor. 3. Train intelligently. Find the best training methods available within your given profession. 4. Eat healthy. You are what you eat. 5. Ask God to guide you in your life. He listens to your prayers. 6. Thank God for your health, your family, and friends. 7. Believe.

Woody Harrelson Gives Excellent Performance in New Cop Movie Film Review By Michael James Gonzalez Not unlike the character he played in 2009’s critically acclaimed film “The Messenger,” Woody Harrelson submits another hard-edged performance in “Rampart,” playing a shell-shocked, Vietnam vet with twenty-four years in the L.A.P.D. Dave Brown (Harrelson) is a cop who doesn’t shy away from whipping his gun out or kicking your teeth in if it means upholding the law. Neither does he shy away from forcing his dysfunctional family to stay together, despite its bizarre set up. Titled after the police

division that was marred by scandal and corruption in the 90s, “Rampart” follows Brown in the days that follow. After an illegal gambling bust goes awry, Brown’s questionable reputation in the force starts to catch up to him when an Internal Affairs officer (Ice Cube) begins to investigate the bust and Brown himself. The film is an interesting study of the corrupting nature of power and how justice by any means isn’t justified at all, thanks in large part to its stellar cast, including Robin Wright, Anne Heche, Cynthia Nix-

on, and an exceptional performance by Brie Larson, who plays one of Brown’s daughters. Director Oren Moverman co-wrote the script with master novelist James Elroy, whose gritty, hard-boiled atmospherics are captured nicely in the film, although the direction itself is sometimes too eratic—a technique most likely used to show Brown’s state of mind—for its own good. But its Harrelson’s talent as an actor that imbues enough humanity into this character to make you almost root for him.

When All Is Said And Dunn By Bill Dunn At times attempting to pay attention to what is going on in your local government is not unlike having a swarm of bees living in your head. So began the recent buzzing in my brain. It started a couple of weeks ago when the current mayor in the rotation here in Temple City, Tom Chavez, got the bad news that his city sponsored vacation, I mean business trip, to China had been cancelled. He was planning on going on a currency quest to see if some foreign investors there would like to swap some cash for permanent residency with some EB-5 visas. EB-5 has become a very popular little program nowadays where foreign investors with enough cash, $500,000.00 is the minimum buy in, and the desire to live in the U.S., can work out a deal. Tom and his councilites wanted to use the dough to kick start what is currently called “The Gateway” formerly called “The Piazza” but will always be known to residents in the San Gabriel Valley as “The Fiasco at Rosemead and Las Tunas”. His council buddies said that due to the recent Wong, Wilson & Wang scandal they weren’t going to underwrite his little jaunt, for fear of possibly perceived impropriety. City manager, Jose Pulido,

voiced his disappointment saying he hoped that the cash would help them start the Fiasco, I mean the Gateway construction at the same time they would be starting the demolition and alleged beautification of Rosemead Boulevard. Say what? Okay I’ll get back to that in a minute. Let me get you caught up on the China excursion first. In what I personally view as kind of an odd turn of events, Randy “I Couldn’t Build A House Of Cards If My Life Depended On It” Wang who was at the heart of the scandal that sent Cathe Wilson and Judy Wong to prison and is the one that has been holding the corner of Las Tunas and Rosemead hostage, is paying for a couple of members of the Temple City chamber of commerce to go with him to China. Talk about your perceived impropriety. They may not be city employees, but I have a funny feeling that the potential investors they are going after may get the impression that they are. Just call me suspicious, but I can hear the excuse “lost in translation” being used somewhere down the line when future litigation is being discussed. Now back to the construction double dipping on Rosemead Boulevard that city manager Pulido was referring to. Back in October I made a call to city hall to ask a couple of questions on the “proposed” modifications to Rosemead Boulevard, the street on which I live. I had received a flyer about a meeting that invited residents to share their concerns about the “proposed” renovations. The artist rendering shown on the flyer included solid medians full of trees, shrubberies, and faceless people

walking and riding bicycles. What I wanted to know was, if there was a median in front of my driveway that would prevent me, or anyone else, from making left turns in or out of their driveways and businesses. The answer was, of course, yes. The people on the committee that I spoke to, Kristi and Steve, sent me straight to the top. Via e-mail, they hooked me up with council member and head of the committee, Carl Blum, with the requisite cc’s to council member Vince Yu and city manager Jose Pulido. Carl was quick on the email draw. In part he stated the following: “I understand the concern you brought up and will add it to the comments we will receive at Thursday’s meeting. We will evaluate the input we get and will determine what adjustments we feel need to be made to the proposed design. We will probably not finish that process until late October. We will get back to you at that time.” His email made me feel special and that my concerns mattered. The council would see what a burden their plans would be for me and my neighbors. They would find a way to modify their plans to please their citizens. I can be such an idealistic fool sometimes, and this was one of them. When the time frame ol’ Carl had specified had come and gone I started to smell something foul. I shot him off an e-mail to see if he and his buddies had found their erasers yet. Carl’s response?: “While it would cause some minor inconvenience to those living on the east side of the 5100 block of Rose-

According to the Arcadia Association of REALTORS®, California’s housing affordability rose to its highest level in fourth-quarter 2011, matching a record high set in 2009, thanks to lower home prices and record-low interest rates. This information was obtained from reports furnished by the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.). The percentage of home buyers who could afford to purchase a medianpriced, existing single-family home in California rose to 55 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011, up from 52 percent in third-quarter 2011 and

from 50 percent in the fourth quarter of 2010, according to C.A.R.’s Traditional Housing Affordability Index (HAI). The index was the highest since C.A.R. began tracking this statistic in 1988, and equaled a high set in first-quarter 2009. C.A.R.’s HAI measures the percentage of all households that can afford to purchase a median-priced, single-family home in California. C.A.R. also reports affordability indices for regions and select counties within the state. The Index is considered the most fundamental measure of housing wellbeing for home buyers in the

$24 Million Land Deal Finally Approved for Metro Goldline Maintenance Facility The Construction Authority and Excalibur Property Holdings, LLC agreed to terms for purchase of the remaining privately-held property needed for the Goldline maintenance facility. The Metro funding agreement requires control of half of the required real estate before the remaining $527 million can be committed. Last week’s agreement brings the Authority’s total to approximately half of the land needed. Excalibur – which owns 20% of the total land needed

Continued from page 1 beautiful rendition of “It had to be you” The popular song written by Isham Jones, with lyrics by Gus Kahn was first published in 1924. The song was performed by Priscilla Lane in the 1939 film The Roaring Twenties and by Danny Thomas in the 1951 film I'll See You in My Dreams. The latter film was based loosely upon the lives of Gus Kahn and his wife Grace LeBoy Kahn. It was also performed by Dooley Wilson in the 1942 film Casablanca, Betty Hutton in the 1945 film Incendiary Blonde, and by Diane Keaton in the 1977 film Annie Hall. It was also performed in the film A League of Their Own by Megan Cavanagh. The lyrics explain why the singer puts up with a domineering partner. The reason offered is depth of attachment: "somebody who could make me be true, could make me be blue." However, domination itself may be the attraction: "some others I've seen might never be mean, never be cross, try to be boss, but they wouldn't do." The singer concludes: "nobody else gave me a thrill ... wonderful you, it had to be you." The song could have been written expressly for Lucille and Frank. Lucille said that a big part of their success as a couple is that one has to be passive.

for the facility - has initiated several lawsuits against the Construction Authority over the last year. At the same time, the Authority has initiated eminent domain to acquire its land. All of these actions have been progressing on separate schedules and each has been affecting the other, together creating significant legal and financial risk to the project. Over the last two weeks, the Authority, Metro and Excalibur representatives have agreed to terms through the

guidance of Superior Court Settlement Judge Helen Bendix. As the result of this effort, all lawsuits are settled for $24 million, protecting taxpayer funds by avoiding continuation of costly litigation and associated significant project delays (which we estimate could increase the project cost by well over $100 million). The agreement amount is within the approved budget for the maintenance facility, keeping the project on budget and on schedule.

My Funny Valentine With Frank as the fiery Italian, one can only reflect on who was the passive partner here. In June of 1956, the young couple ventured to California. Frank’s profession as an electronic technician saw a huge opportunity with Bell and Howell in Pasadena. From there on Frank progressed steadily in the industry and they bought their home in Altadena within the first two years living in Pasadena.

When you combine this love of life with the extraordinary fact of nearly 75 years of shared joy, this in itself deserves some kind of recognition, therefore we decided to wish Frank not only Happy Birthday from Beacon Media but also congratulations on 75 years of marriage which they’ll be celebrating in a mere few months. The couple has two boys, two grandsons and four great grandchildren.

205 Arrested and 51 Firearms Confiscated in January Disarm Sweeps During the month of January, Los Angeles County D.I.S.A.R.M. officers arrested 205 probationers and confiscated 51 firearms and over $2.2 million in illegal drugs and drug money, announced Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. In conjunction with local law enforcement, 1681 searches were conducted of probationers who, as a

condition of probation, are subject to unannounced searches targeting guns, drugs and other contraband. D.I.S.A.R.M was initiated by Supervisor Antonovich following the tragic August 1999 shootings at the North Valley Jewish Community Center and the murder of a postal worker by Buford Furrow, an armed felon on probation

from Washington State. Since its implementation in February of 2000, the D.I.S.A.R.M. program has seized over 8,100 weapons and more than $363 million in illegal drugs and drug money and resulted in 16,500 arrests. Nearly 10 percent of probationers searched in this program have been found to be out of compliance with the terms of their probation.

Portantino Wants Utilities to be Prepared for Disaster Wind Disaster Highlights Need for Better Planning (AB 1650) In the wake of fierce winds and power outages that caused significant damage to parts of Southern California late last year, Assemblymember Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) has introduced a bill to improve emergency and disaster preparedness in California. AB 1650 requires gas and electric companies to hold comprehensive disaster preparedness meetings every two years with the counties and cities they service in order to improve readiness and better prepare for future disasters. It also calls on the California Public Utilities Commission to use its regulatory authority to set preparedness standards for public utilities. “We learned some things from this recent disaster that change how we look

at these events,” explained Assemblymember Portantino. “Having utilities review their plans every two years will force better coordination, better service and better public safety. Many ratepayers may not know that a portion of their utility bills is intended to pay for emergency preparedness; let’s make sure it does.” The San Gabriel Valley was hit hard in early December by devastating winds that knocked out power to nearly a quarter of a million customers, some of them for more than a week. In a preliminary report, the California Public Utilities Commission stated that in some cases, Southern California Edison’s equipment did not meet safety standards and that the utility was slow to restore power to homes and

businesses. Local utilities also had trouble with communications plans. “The purpose of these meetings is to inform the counties of emergency planning and to offer County Public Works Departments and the public, the opportunity to review and improve those plans,” explained Portantino. “We saw in this last disaster that communications were often incomplete or confusing and the public really had no idea what was going on. We all know the ‘Big One’ is coming- it’s just a matter of when – and we need to be prepared.” Under AB 1650, gas and electric companies will be required to begin their disaster preparedness meetings within three months of the legislation becoming law.

Free Monrovia Mulch Available The old agade that it is an ill wind that blows nobody good means that the winds of the night of November 30/December1 were not competely bad. The downed trees resulted in a great deal of green waste, much of which has been chipped, ground, and composted into gar-

den mulch. The city of Monrovia amd Athens Services are making that mulch available. On Saturday, February 18 and again on the 25th the mulch will be available free at Recreation Park, 600 S. Shamrock, next to the Boy’s and Girls Club. Individuals must bring

their own shovels and containers for transportation. Gloves and safety glasses or goggles are also recommended. The mulch will be available free as long as supplies last from 8 am to 5 p.m. each day. For further information, contact the city at (626) 932-5525.

Rattlesnake Aversion Training Session for Your Dog

-Courtesy Photo

Dog owners can protect their pets and themselves from dangerous rattlesnake bites with a special one-day training event at Huntington Veterinary Hospital, 535 West Huntington Drive, Monrovia, CA 91016 on Sunday March 4, 2012. California has a variety of snakes, most of which are benign. The exception is California’s only native venomous snake -

the rattlesnake. There are currently ten recognized species and sub-species of rattlesnake in California. Dogs are especially at risk; in fact dogs are about 20 times more likely to be bitten by venomous snakes than people and are about 25 times more likely to die if bitten. Snake bites are life threatening, extremely painful, expensive to treat, and can cause permanent damage even when the dog

survives. The California Poison Control Center notes that rattlesnakes account for more than 800 human bites each year with one to two deaths. Most bites occur between the months of April and October when snakes and humans are most active outdoors. Rattlesnakes are typically non-aggressive and shy away when possible, but when startled, cornered or pursued (as by a curious and un-trained canine) they strike and often inject their venom. The training costs $80 for existing clients of Huntington Veterinary Hospital, or $95 for non-clients. Payment is due at time of reservation. Owners can reserve a space by calling HVH at (626) 357-2335, or via email at info@huntvh. com. Learn more about Huntington Veterinary Hospital at www.huntvh. com. Additional information about Natural Solutions is available at their website: www.rattlesnakeaversion. com.

FEBRUARY 16, 2012 - FEBRUARY 22, 2012 9

Portantino Introduces Legislation to Hold Rapists Accountable by Deleting the Statute of Limitations for the Crime of Rape Assemblymember Anthony Portantino (D – La Cañada Flintridge), has introduced AB 1682, his latest effort to ensure that rapists are ultimately caught and convicted in California. “Under current law, there is a ten year statute of limitation for the crime of rape. AB 1682 deletes this arbitrary time limit and will provide that those who sexually prey on our citizens can be brought to justice.” “I have in the past introduced legislation to ensure that all rape kits that are collected in California are tested for evidence of crime. Unfortunately, many rape kits are never

tested. It is frustrating to know a rapist could continue to walk the streets because a vital piece of evidence went untested because of the costs of processing these kits.” Under current law, evidence from rape kits is held in law enforcement evidence lockers where many languish, oftentimes past the statute of limitations for prosecuting the crime. While the number of unopened or untested kits throughout the State has been subject to debate, it is clear that local resources are not adequate to process rape kits for evidence unless there is a determined commitment to do

so. “Not testing rape kits after a woman has submitted herself to the invasive process of collecting a rape kit, betrays the victim’s faith in the criminal justice system, Portantino said.” AB 1682 will provide a different solution to the problem by deleting the statute of limitations for the crime of rape. “While justice delayed, is justice denied; a statute of limitations that terminates prosecution because we do not want to spend money testing rape kits is unconscionable.” This measure will hold accountable those who commit this terrible crime whenever it was committed.

Community Workshop Feb. 16 to Focus on Gang Awareness The City of Rosemead Public Safety Department is hosting its monthly Community Safety Meeting, “Gang Awareness” on Thursday, February 16, 7 p.m. – 8 p.m., at the Rosemead Public Safety Center, 8301 Garvey Avenue.

Only days are left before Fat Tuesday, but you can still get tickets to Methodist Hospital’s 17th annual Mardi Gras celebration February 21 at Sirona’s, Santa Anita Park. Over 500 local business and community leaders, physicians and community members are expected to attend the festive fundraiser, which will begin at 6 p.m. Guests will enjoy a variety of fun-filled activities, including a parade and silent auction, drinks and dancing, and delicious food prepared by some of San Gabriel Valley’s finest restaurants. More than 20 area eateries are expected to participate, including The Derby, Casa del Rey, Green Street Restaurant, Cabrera’s Mexican Cuisine, Matt Denny’s and Cafe Massilia. And it’s all for a very important cause. Proceeds go to the hospital’s elite stroke program, which greatly impacts

the lives of those afflicted by a stroke as well as their loved ones. Stroke is the leading cause of death and primary cause of adult disability within the United States. It is imperative to immediately call 911 if someone appears to have stroke symptoms. When the brain can be preserved, the subsequent quality of life for a person afflicted by a stroke can change vastly. Emergency response teams will take a patient to an approved stroke-receiving center like Methodist Hospital. The certified, interdisciplinary team will give immediate, interventional care, striving to have stroke patients back home, resuming quality of daily life with their loved ones. The support provided from the Mardi Gras proceeds will help with the expansion of the stroke program at Methodist Hospital. This year’s co-chairs Lindburgh McPherson and

Sherri Taylor also chaired the highly successful Mardi Gras 2010. “We have wonderful entertainment with lots of fun activities – and it’s all for a great cause,” McPherson said. Taylor agreed. “This is such a fun event, and it is important to raise awareness of these vital hospital services,” she said. “It is imperative for members of a community to support any hospital that would assist them in a health emergency, and Mardi Gras is a wonderful way to support Methodist Hospital.” Last year’s Mardi Gras raised an estimated $70,000, and this year’s should be an extraordinary event, McPherson added. Mardi Gras is almost here, so order your tickets today, and laissez les bon temps rouler! Contact Gloria Rico at 626-821-2340 or mardigras@methodisthospital. org.

Lutz said “The negotiated deal is The Deal as far as we and the Gold Line are concerned.” She pointed out, however, that the city could not yet act upon that negotiated agreement. The actions of the state legislature which disbanded the redevelopment agencies called for successor agencies to oversee the payment of debts owed the agencies and the disposal of their assets. However, in disposing of the assets (such as selling land to the GLCA) the actions of the Successor Agencies had to

The ensemble award was accepted by Gabriel Rousset and Ariana Raygoza who play the lead male and female roles in OKLAHOMA– see pictures attached.

For tickets you can go to www.arcadiastage.com and you can also purchase them at Denny’s Restaurant at 7 East Huntington Drive in Arcadia on the corner of Huntington Drive and Santa Anita Avenue. Students and Seniors are $10 General Admission is $15 and VIP reserved seating is $25. You can also purchase tickets for opening night at the Arcadia Community Theatre and at the Monrovia Community Center.

Maintenance be approved by an Oversight Board. Each Redevelopment Agency would have a Successor Agency and each Successor Agency would have its own Oversight Board. While the City of Monrovia has declared itself the Successor Agency to its own redevelopment agency, an Oversight Board has not yet been created. As provided by the state, the city has two appointments to that Board. The county has two appointments as well. The county Board of Education, the head of the county Sanitation District, and the Chancellor of the State Community College System, each have one appointment. Only the city has named its two members of the seven member Oversight Board. Mayor

Lutz and Darlene Sanchez, Senior Project Manager of what was the MRA are the two appointed to the Board. Until the rest of the members are appointed to the board and until the legislature has outlines exactly how they are to act, any action of the Successor Agency cannot be approved. Even such an approval is not enough to give the city the ability to sell the property. The approval of the State Department of Finance is also required. While the problem of the sale of the Excalibur held property has been resolved.

American Heart Association, City Officials Report on Pasadena’s State of Heart Health

Dr. Eric Walsh speaks at the Valentine’s Day State of Heart Health event Tuesday. -Photos by Terry Miller

Eric Walsh, MD, MPH, City of Pasadena Public Health Department Director/Health Officer along with Vyshali Rao, MD, American Heart Association (AHA) Greater Los Angeles Division Board Member and Cardiologist at Huntington Hospital were among the many speakers at a press conference on Valentine’s Day held outside Macy’s on South Lake in Pasadena.

In honor of Heart Month, the American Heart Association joined in with Pasadena City officials in sharing a profile of heart health in Pasadena, the steps the city has taken, in collaboration with the AHA, to foster heart health among its residents, and plans for the future. Huntington Hospital also offered free BP screenings. Heart disease and stroke are the nation’s No.

1 and No. 4 killers, claiming more than 831,000 lives every year. In Pasadena, 217 residents die each year from coronary heart disease and 44 die of stroke. Mortality rates from heart disease and stroke has declined sharply in Los Angeles County. Between 1997 and 2007, heart disease and stroke deaths dropped by 41 percent and 39 percent, respectively, translating to about 11,000 lives saved annually from these diseases. Despite these encouraging numbers, heart disease mortality in LA County remains 12 percent higher than for the country as a whole. In addition, some of the major risk factors for cardiovascular disease – such as high blood pressure, physical inactivity and obesity – have not seen the same decline and are in fact rising. For example, the rate of overweight adults in Pasadena is close to 38 percent, while the rate of Pasadena smokers is 10 percent. If this does not stop, we are likely to begin seeing an increase in cardiovascular diseases, and at an earlier age.

LIVE JAZZ NIGHTLY l.a.’s top talent

Continued from page 3 mead Blvd who might wish to travel south on Rosemead Blvd, they would be able to travel north for a short distance to Sereno and then loop around to Sultana and then to Pentland and enter Rosemead Blvd to go south at the traffic signal at Pentland or they could go a little further north and make a u-turn at the traffic signal at Broadway. It would be no different than for those who live along the many miles of wider more heavily traveled roadways that already have medians (including much of Rosemead Blvd, Huntington Drive, Santa Anita Dr., and Baldwin Ave as examples).” I learned two things

from his response. First, it confirms my long held belief that they put hallucinogens in the water at city hall. Second, I now know what classifies as a “minor inconvenience” in the eyes of the current city council. I wonder what they would call it if someone put a barrier in front of their house preventing them from making a left turn in or out of their driveway? Somehow I don’t think the word “minor” would be involved. A few questions popped into my spinning head as I read his email. Who decided that the 17 million dollars available for this project should be spent on this?

Why, just because mistakes were made on Rosemead, Huntington and Baldwin, should we repeat them? And the biggest why of all? Why would anybody think it would be a good idea to begin two major construction projects on the same street at the same time? Isn’t this something that the residents in the city, if not all the surrounding cities, should be deciding on? Or don’t you care what kind of traffic nightmare you would be causing for all of our neighbors? Oh that’s right, I forgot, it would only be a minor inconvenience. Kind of like having bees living in your head.

Governor’s Proposed Budget Cuts Would Have an Adverse Effect on California’s Stray and Abandoned Animals The California Animal Control Directors Association and the State Humane Association of California have jointly announced that they oppose Governor Brown’s proposed repeal of the animal adoption mandate created by the 1998 enactment of the “Hayden Law.” This mandate requires that animal shelters perform certain duties, including holding stray or abandoned animals for a minimum of four to six days rather than the 72 hours required by prior law and providing them with necessary and prompt veterinary care. In return, the state is required to provide reimbursement for the increased costs incurred by shelters in the performance of those duties.

“Our organization supports the enhanced care afforded to animals through the passage of the Hayden Law,” stated Marcia Mayeda, President of the California Animal Control Directors Association. “There has been so much progress for animals in California’s shelters since this law became effective. A repeal would be a huge step backwards.” “While we understand that the Governor is faced with the necessity of making deep and painful budget cuts, we believe that the welfare of California’s vulnerable companion animals should be given priority,” explained Erica Gaudet Hughes, Executive Director of the State Humane Association of California. “Reducing the required holding period

for stray and abandoned animals to 72 hours and carving away at the requirement that sick and injured animals receive lifesaving veterinary care will result in more euthanasia and increased suffering of stray and abandoned animals. Our sick and vulnerable animals deserve more.” Mayeda notes that many shelters will continue to hold stray animals for more than 72 hours and provide appropriate veterinary care. However, local governing bodies will now have the option of requiring that their animal shelters operate at the minimum level required by law. While funding the mandate is CACDA and SHAC’s first choice, they urge the Governor

to suspend -- rather than repeal -- the animal adoption mandate if the state is simply unable to fund the mandate in the upcoming year. “We are working closely with our legislative advocate in Sacramento to preserve the Hayden Law so that California can continue to offer a minimum of care for its stray and abandoned animals,” stated Hughes. “We have a moral imperative to protect those animals that are unable to protect themselves.” Both organizations advocate for a working group of California’s sheltering leaders to convene to explore viable alternatives. The working group would also be tasked with evaluating outcomes in the twelve years since enactment of the legislation.

Los Angeles County Proclaims Day of Remembrance Feb. 19 for Japanese-Americans Interned During World War II Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich announced that Los Angeles County has proclaimed February 19, 2012 as a Day of Remembrance for JapaneseAmericans interned during World War II. On February 19, 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066 incarcerating all 120,000 Japanese-Americans and legal residents

following Imperial Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. While the order also authorized the selective incarceration of some citizens of German and Italian descent, it forcibly relocated all citizens and legal residents of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast of the United States. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed legislation apologizing for

President Roosevelt’s internment on behalf of the U.S. government, stating that the order was based on “race prejudice, war hysteria, and a failure of political leadership.” More than $1.6 billion in reparations was dispersed to those who had been interned. “Los Angeles County, home to one of the largest populations of JapaneseAmericans in the nation,

has benefited economically and culturally in the fields of business, agriculture, academia, medicine, government and the arts from the many contributions of the Japanese-American community,” said Antonovich. Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas’ “Day of Remembrance” motion was unanimously approved by the Board of Supervisors today.

At approximately 6:32 p.m., an officer was dispatched to the 1000 block of Valencia Way in regards to an identity theft report.

Friday, February 10: Around 1:57 a.m., an officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for lane swerving in the area of Huntington Drive and Santa Anita Avenue. A record check revealed the driver, a 30-year-old Hispanic male, had an expired license.

Old Town Valentine’s Day Drawing Winners C

When Nic Conway listened to her voice mail last Friday night her husband, David, says she was literally dancing for joy. “You’ve just won the Old Town Valentine’s Day drawing”, the message said. “Come on in and pick up your 40” teddy bear and your gift certificate to Monrovia Floral for one dozen red roses – plus your $100 gift certificate to an Old Town restaurant”. That message is enough to make anyone dance, but anyone who knows the Conways can appreciate their special dance. Long-time residents of Monrovia and avid supporters of Monrovia’s historic Old Town district, Nic and Dave can be seen several times a week dining and/or shopping locally, often leaving the car behind and walking briskly from their nearby residence. They

M

share what they like, and they like what they share, and those of us who are fortunate enough to know them continue to appreciate their enthusiasm. One of the really exciting things about this drawing is the winner can use their $100 gift certificate for a one-time use attheir favorite restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Last year’s winner was a then 12 year old young girl who treated her mom and two brothers to a very large breakfast at the Peach Café. This year the Conways have chosen Myrtle Avenue’s famous Café Opera for their special meal. Monrovia Old Town merchants host a variety of special events throughout the year.

The scene of the LeRoy Barnes shooting in 2009. -Photo by Terry Miller

More than three years after the fatal shooting of Leroy Barnes Jr., the Pasadena Police Department has released the names of the two officers involved. Officers Michael Alvarado and Charles Reep were the two Pasadena police officers who fired the 11 shots that killed Leroy Barnes.

The two police officers who shot and killed 38-year-old Pasadena resident Leroy Barnes in February 2009 will not face any county criminal charges. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office concluded in its investigation in 2010 and stated that the shooting was “lawful self-defense.”

Leroy Barnes was shot 11 times, including seven times in the back, after Pasadena Police officers pulled over a car driven by Emeka Edwards on Mentone Avenue on Feb. 19 2009 The California Supreme Court decision said Wednesday that the names of officers in on-duty shoot-

ings should be provided to the public. Barnes, a 38-year-old Pasadena resident, parolee and gang member, was shot to death by the officers during a traffic stop on Feb. 19, 2009. The officers, who were not prosecuted, were however, named in a wrongful death lawsuit filed in 2009.

Lives Remembered

Duartian Turns 100 By Ruth Longoria Kingsland

Eugene Ray Fields Eugene Ray Fields was born September 6, 1925 in Berkeley, California. His childhood was spent traveling through the fruit orchards of the area, working with his family during the great depression. In 1945, while playing baseball in the streets of San Gabriel, CA he met his soon-tobe-wife, Geraldine. Love at first sight, and a few serenades later, they married after a mere 5 months. In September of 2011 they celebrated their 66h wedding anniversary. Those years were overflowing with love, laughter, and a few more serenades. Gene was a member of the Masonic Lodge in Arcadia, CA, from 1983 to present, serving as Master in 1989. This service to the Lodge, and youth groups within, gave him great joy. The talented work of his hands encompassed a number of industries, from the steel booths founds in parking garages across the country, to small works of arts and crafts, to RV repair and the beautification and expansion of his own homes. Gene and Geri spent much of their lives together camping in their RV's mostly up and down the Pacific coast line and gold country and occasionally in their own yard. They were able to enjoy a trip of life-

time covering most of the US in 1996 that they still talk about. In 2002 they “retired” to Nampa, Idaho where they purchased a historic home. True to

his gift of craftsmanship, he quickly upgraded their new home, including a dream workshop. They had many more plans for the house, yard and travels when the excruciating pain in his back caused those plans to come to a halt. When a surgery in 2009 left him a paraplegic it slowed him down only a little as he picked up an old hobby of wood carving and still helped his beloved wife finish up a few projects around their home and even started a few new ones. Despite Gene's zeal for life, warrior spirit and multiple miraculous heal-

ings, the paralysis began a series of health complications over the next 2 ½ years that has finally called him to his true Home. Gene went to be with his Savior on Thursday, February 9, 2012. He is survived by his cherished wife Geri, son David and wife Kathi of California, daughter Cindy and husband Jim of Washington, grandchildren: Tammy and her husband Gordon of Nampa, Michelle and her husband Charles of California, Tyler and his wife Linda of California, and Erik also of California, and great grandchildren: CJ, Sierra, Cyrus, Harrison and Brooklyn, as well as a sister, a sister-in-law, and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ray Thomas Fields, Goldie Fields, his sister Betty Fields, his brother Wayne Fields and great granddaughter Georgia Adams. A public memorial service will be held on Thursday, February 16 at 11:00am at Eagle Nazarene Church, 1001 W State Street in Eagle, Idaho. In lieu of flowers please donate to National Kidney Foundation of Utah and Idaho, 3707 North Canyon Road, Suite 1D, Provo, UT 84604.

Quite probably the oldest man in Duarte, the patriarch of one of the largest families in this city was honored Jan 24 by the City Council. Known to many as “Papa Reyes,” longtime Duartian Jose Reyes Diaz turned 100 years old Jan. 6. He has nine children, about 60 grandchildren, 140 greatgrandchildren, and 18 greatgreat-grandchildren. More than three-dozen of those family members still live in the Duarte area. About 300 family members attended an early birthday party for the elder Diaz in October, with relatives flying in from as far away as Chicago, Georgia and Mexico. “We have a great family — I’m really blessed,” said Diaz’s grandson, Frank Figueroa, 16-year member of the Duarte Board of Education. Figueroa, 47, was on hand for the Jan. 24 City Council meeting to speak on behalf of his grandfather, who has had difficulty speaking since a stroke about five years ago. Despite verbal difficulties, Diaz lives a full life in the home of Figueroa’s parents, Vicente and Herlinda Figueroa. He is able to take

a daily walk in the patio area of the home and is alert and able to communicate with family, Frank Figueroa said. Diaz was born in 1912 in Cartegenas, Jalisco, Mexico. On Feb. 15, 1933, he married Maximina Huizar. Maximina, known to family as “Mama Mina” died in May 1993. The couple immigrated to southern Texas in the 1950s. There, Diaz worked as a bracero, a migrant farm worker, picking onions in the Brownsville area for 50-cents-per-day. In 1976, the Diaz family moved to Duarte. In Duarte, Diaz continued in the field of agriculture, picking fruit in the fields of the city’s north hard stone area. At that time, much of the area above Royal Oaks Avenue was nurseries and strawberry fields. He later retired as a dishwasher at Royal Oaks Manor. “My grandfather has always worked hard at hard labor. Maybe that’s why he has lived so long, he has worked so hard,” Figueroa said. After living and working in this country for most of his life, Diaz expressed to his family his desire to become a United States citizen, so, on Feb. 6, 1998 Diaz

officially became a U.S. citizen. Although he left most of his family in Mexico when he moved to the United States, Diaz was from a large family that was separated during the War of the Christeros, an uprising in the 1920s when the Mexican Government persecuted Catholic activities and outlawed religious education. In addition to growing his own dynasty of descendents in southern California, Diaz found after moving to Duarte that other family members also had settled in the Los Angeles area. About 60 years after last seeing his brother in Mexico, Diaz met his brother’s son, who then lived in Whittier. Although the nephew since died, Diaz also has great nieces and nephews in that area. While presenting Diaz with a certificate of recognition for his many years in Duarte and in life, Mayor John Fasana expressed his appreciation for Diaz’s life well lived. “This isn’t just an 80th birthday, or a 90th birthday. This is 100 years. That’s a lot of years,” he said.

Rose Leaf Ragtime Club Meets Feb 26. at Aztec The Rose Leaf Ragtime Club, now in its 17th year of operation, which meets on the last Sunday of every month, will next gather on Sunday February 26, 2012 at the Aztec Hotel’s Mayan Restaurant from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. Special guest performer will be ragtime and stride pianist Bob Pinsker. Bob was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He studied the violin with

several members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra as a child and has been playing the violin in various orchestras for more than 40 years. He taught himself to play the piano in his early teens and soon developed a lifetime interest in the popular piano styles of the first half of the 20th century. He has studied old sheet music and piano rolls since the early 70s. In "real life", Bob is a

plasma physicist working at a laboratory in San Diego, California, but whenever he can he carries out musicological research, performs with the Heliotrope Ragtime Orchesta, of which he is the co-founder and co-leader, rehearses with orchestras and bands (Red Pepper Jazz Band and the San Diego Six, among others), and appears as a solo pianist at such venues as Old Town Music

Hall (where he appeared in two concerts in 2002 and one each in 2003-2009), El Segundo, CA, the Orange County RagFest (20012010), West Coast Ragtime Festival, Sutter Creek Ragtime Festival, San Diego Thanksgiving Dixieland Festival, and The Roseleaf Club in Pasadena and Monrovia. He especially would like to thank the Roseleaf Club for giving him his start

as a solo act, back in 1999! The Aztec Hotel, is a local historic building, built in 1925 located at 311 W. Foothill Boulevard in Monrovia, 3½ blocks west of Myrtle. Plenty of free parking at the west side of the hotel. Suggested donation -- $2.00 (performers are not asked to donate). Ragtime and related types of music, classic and contemporary, played on one or two up-

right pianos, as well as on other instruments. Attendees are encouraged to support the hotel (which does not charge the club) by partaking of the reasonable all-you-can-eat buffet ($12.25 –beverage not included) or ordering a drink from the bar. Performers, listeners and dancers (there’s a small dance floor) are always welcome.

Dr. Hani Sami broke ground Thursday afternoon for his new 7,000 square foot facility that will become the Sierra Madre Community Medical Group building on Sierra Madre Blvd. The long awaited day came with a

blessing from Rev. Patrick Brennan, CP , Retreat Director of Mater Dolorosa Retreat Center. Dr. Sami thanked those in attendance for the ceremony for their “…overwhelming support…” . Carol Jones of American Con-

struction Management and Engineering, Inc. (ACME), the contractor, Mayor Pro Tem Josh Moran and City Manager Elaine Aguilar, among others were in attendance for the relativley uncommon sight in Sierra Madre.

It’s a blessing - Rev. Patrick Brennan, CP performs the traditional ground blessing for the new facility. -Photo by Terry Miller
