After coming into ICE custody, ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers reconfirmed that Mr. Carrillo had been previously removed from the United States to Mexico in April 2006. Consistent with ICE’s enforcement

priorities, which include previously deported aliens, ERO reinstated Mr. Carrillo’s former removal order. However, at the request of the Pasadena Police Department, ERO has agreed to postpone Mr. Carrillo’s removal until the conclusion of the criminal justice proceedings related to the recent officer involved shooting. While that matter remains pending, Mr. Carrillo is being released from ICE custody on electronic monitoring.

Dorothy's Place Take Two and Hurry

By Dorothy Denne I've mentioned before that I like cartoons. I saw one the other day that really appealed to me. It was a picture of a little baby with a very distressed expression. The caption said, "Sometimes I get so frustrated that I don't know whether to cry, scream or wet my pants!" I could relate to that. I had a headache. Not a smasher, just sort of a dull, all over the head type. You know what I mean. The kind that just sort of takes the edge off life. In addition, the muscles in my back were fighting each other and my left knee was complaining a little. No one thing was horrendous but, putting them all together along with a few human contacts I was going to have to make, I decided

it was time to "take two" of the "take two aspirin and call back tomorrow" line. We were out of aspirin. I went to the store to buy a bottle. There were three shelves of pain killers. I won't list the brand names 'cause I don't want to be sued. Besides, my column space is limited. I looked over the shelves for my favorite brand. Found it. Then I looked for the just plain old 325mg pain relief type. They weren't there. There was extra strength arthritis formula. There was long lasting analgesic something. There were separate formulas for sinus pain, muscle strain, night time pain, headache, menstrual, joint and backache. Give me a break. To cover all my aches at the "take two rate" I would need to buy half a shelf and swallow about ten pills. And, that's only if I stayed with one brand. How does each of those formulas know what hurts and where to go? I had a mental picture of that

little guy who used to row around in the toilet tank giving instructions. Maybe his cousin works for the pain killer industry and hides out in that hunk of cotton you can never get out of the bottle. I began looking at some other brands. I put on my bifocals and started reading the very fine print warning labels. Ooops. Better not take that one. It is dangerous if you have high blood pressure. Another is harmful for Diabetics. One could damage your liver. Another might destroy your kidneys. Like the baby, I was feeling frustrated. I didn't know whether to scream or cry. I had stood there so long that now my feet were hurting too, my backache was worse and my head was throbbing. At least I knew which one to buy. I just reached for the extra strength, double duty, long lasting, go for broke king-size bottle. And I had to hurry or I would wet my pants.

My Hero, My Mother Elsa Sneider, a Woman of Faith, Courage and Love by harry sneider

Elsa Sneider, 98, a pillar of strength! -Photo by Herry Sneider

We began our journey in Riga, Latvia in 1941 the year that I was born. The circumstances in Latvia were catastrophic. The German Army had come in and taken over the Latvian population. You had a choice there to serve them or be killed. I was only 3 months old when my mother was taken as a prisoner of war. We were starving to death and she could not produce milk to breast feed me as a young baby. The Germans had taken all the food from the stores and farms to feed their armies so my mother called out to God and asked for a miracle so we would not starve. There was a Jewish lady that reached out and gave her some much needed milk to feed me. On top of all this my mother needed shoes, all the shoes were taken, and the Germans gave her only wooden shoes that she wore during the winter of 1941. My dad was also taken as a prisoner by the Ger-

man Army. He was a skilled painter and they told him to paint jeeps, tanks, and whatever other vehicles they had. His choice in order to live was to comply with their orders. My mother, brother and I had a chance to escape Latvia to Poland by ship. We took that highly risky trip and left Latvia in 1943. Always hungry we had a better chance of survival in Poland. We settled in Krakow where my mother was forced to work in a jewelry store while my brother and I were taken care of in the basement by a Russian. We always wanted to find my father who was somewhere in Europe. From Krakow our journey continued to Czechoslovakia by train in 1944. This was a real war zone. The Germans were being pushed out by the Russians. The Russians were marching through Prague and as a little child I followed their army into the woods. We lived on a road near the Russian army in a small under-

ground apartment building. Again my mother prayed and asked for God’s deliverance of her wayward young son Harry. The Russian army adopted me as a kind of mascot around their campfire revelry. They were drinking vodka, eating dark rye bread and had long sausages for food. One of the soldiers put me back on the road in the direction of where they saw me earlier in the day. I marched down that road with a sausage on one shoulder and a loaf of bread on the other towards my mother’s small apartment. There was some discipline with love that waited for me and tears of joy for my coming home. My mother was orphaned as a 5 year old in Latvia when her mother died of TB at age 32. A grandmother took her in and reared her with a very profound spiritual foundation that she depended on during the turbulence of the war and beyond. Sarah and I returned last week from a trip to Minnesota where my mother is still very active and enthusiastic about life at age 98. She has the vision of a young woman and still feels her presence is necessary for our entire family. The miracle of coming through World War II can be summed up in the principles she imparted to us: 1. Trust God to guide and protect you. 2. Stay optimistic about the future. 3. Continue to stay physically active. My mother still works out at age 98. 4. Reach out and help those around you. 5. Believe you are here for a reason.

Project Update

‘Why I am Voting for Chris Koerber' On Thursday, March 29, 2012, Ms. Pat Birdsall wrote a letter to the editor to which I am responding. It was John Adams who said, "Facts are stubborn things." Clearly, Ms. Birdsall subscribes to the school of revisionist history. Namely, Chris Koerber's campaign manager never supported the construction of Maranatha High School at 1 Carter. I challenge anyone

to provide proof of that. Further, Ms. Birdsall's attempt to bring national politics into a local, non-partisan city council race speaks loudly about her personal agenda, as evidenced by Koerber's opponent's campaign sign on her front lawn. And how can anyone believe someone who quotes an anonymous source? It is unfortunate that Ms.

Birdsall resorts to lies and gutter politics when Sierra Madre needs the experience of a candidate like Chris Koerber who possesses the financial acumen and long history of preserving Sierra Madre that his opponent sorely lacks. I AM voting for Chris Koerber who will lead Sierra Madre in the right direction. Pat Holland

McDade Family Files Wrongful Death Suit Continued from page 1

manding a jury trial in the above complaints. In addition to the complaints, Attorney Carre Harper cites what she alleges to be a series of innapropriate action by Pasadena Police for a number of years. The backgroung relative to all causes of action in the suit states that Pasadena appears to have a long history of civil rights violations against young black adults. Cited were the Barnes killing in 2009 and other examples of “excessive use of force.” Specifically cited were the Damian Esteem beating in 2006 and “the so called “El Sereno 3” The lawsuit also states that officers handcuffed McDade after he was shot. The description in the suit is vivid and disturbing. However, according to many local law enforecement officials with whom we spoke, it is common practice to handcuff a

suspect if he’s believed to be a threat and in this instance, officers Newlen and Griffin believed there was a threat. The lawsuit also claims Detective Gomez was involved in several “controversial killings of young black men in Pasadena” and his investigation into the officer involved shooting of McDade “reeks of a cover-up.” The Pasadena Police Department alleges McDade and a 17-year-old companion stole a backpack and electronics from a parked car belonging to a man identified as Oscar Carrillo. Carrillo 26, of Pasadena, arrested on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter Wednesday and spent six days in Pasadena city jail. The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office declined to file the charge against Carrillo. On Tuesday, he was

turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. “At the request of the Pasadena Police Department, (ICE) has agreed to postpone Mr. Carrillo’s removal until the conclusion of the criminal justice proceedings related to the recent officer involved shooting,” ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice said in a statement Tuesday. “While that matter remains pending, Mr. Carrillo is being released from ICE custody on electronic monitoring.” There have been numerous correlations to this case and that of Travon Martin’s murder in Florida by a so called ‘neigborhood watch’ vigilante who still has not been arrested. That suspect George Zimmerman’s father is a judge. For a full transcript of the suit see: www.pasadenaindependent.com

Downhome Comedy Abounds in SMP’s “Morning’s at Seven” “Morning's at seven…All's right with the world!” So said Robert Browning. But whose world? Things don’t seem quite “right” at any of the four houses in “Morning’s at Seven” now playing at the Sierra Madre Playhouse. Four middle-aged sisters live near each other—too near, perhaps—in three of the houses. The fourth house has lain fallow for five years, awaiting 40-yearold Homer’s marriage. But that marriage has proven elusive, despite his having courted Myrtle for more than a dozen years. Until now. As the curtain opens we find Cora and Thor Swanson in front of their home, a near-mirror image of the one next door. They and Aaronetta (Arry) have heard that Homer is finally bringing Myrtle home to meet his parents, Ida and Carl Bolton. Curiosity is nearly killing them, as they peer up the street in hopes that the young couple will show. Houses--and who will live in them—become the dominant theme of this comedy. What if Homer doesn’t want to live in the house that had been built with him in mind? Well, Cora has an idea! She’d like to live there alone with Thor. Alone—that’s the key word, because Arry has lived with them the entire 40 years of their married life. Caught in the throes of mid-life, Cora connives to make some changes while there’s yet time. “In the years left to me…” becomes a recurrent phrase, but not only to her. “Morning’s at Seven” is alive with quick rep-

Gold Line Azusa Extension Underway Following the March Superior Court decision allowing the acquisition of the Gold Line’s Monrovia maintenance and operations facility, and the relinquishment of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad Company’s rail right-of-way in February, construction of the Gold Line’s Pasadena to Azusa alignment is finally underway, announced MTA First Vice Chair, Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. “It’s full speed ahead for the Gold Line to Azusa,” said Supervisor Antonovich.

“With construction to be completed in late 2015, our residents in the San Gabriel Valley will have a further convenient, cost-effective transit alternative.” “Work now begins on the next phase which will be extending the Gold Line from Azusa to Claremont,” he added. “San Bernardino County is also currently developing the plan to connect the Gold Line to Ontario Airport and integrate this regional airport into our rail transportation system.”

Barricaded Suspect in Altadena Dies Sheriff’s Homicide detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the shooting of a woman that resulted with the suspect barricading himself in a residence on the 3200 block of North Lincoln Avenue, Altadena Sunday Afternoon. After repeated attempts to have the suspect exit the residence peacefully, the

team made entry and found the suspect deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound. The victim was transported to a local hospital where she is listed in stable condition. The identity of the suspect will be released by the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner.

Old Town Spring Fling a Winner

By Jennifer Boone/Ralph Walker

-Photo by Jennifer Boone

Joannie Yuille, Graciela Claire and Karmel Gholar extended a warm invitation by opening their homeonce again to the community to explore the contributions Cesar Chavez made to America. Chavez and his legacy have made people aware

of the farmers’ plight; the importance of foods we consume on a daily basis and how theyb are delivered to our tables. We enjoyed salads topped with fruit as we enjoy a glass of sparkling red wine among friends and family. He made people more con-

science of the pesticides that were used in the farming products which had such a devastating effect on farm workers and people consuming that food . The boycott of grapes was the battle of the late 1970's. Chavez achieved for hundreds of thousands of farm workers ,dignity and respect, fair wages, medical coverage, pension benefits, humane living conditions, and countless other rights and protections. Over 50 people attended the celebration as they watched a video presentation, listened to speakers as well as Jimmy and Tony Licata singing that famous balad "Blowin' in the Wind". The program was in Spanish and English.

Citrus Disease ‘Huanglongbing’ Detected in Hacienda Heights Area

626 792 4441 · redwhitebluezz.com bm 1-4 vert march 2012.indd 1

3/8/12 5:11 PM

Join us for Easter Brunch!

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) today confirmed the state’s first detection of the citrus disease known as huanglongbing (HLB), or citrus greening. The disease was detected in an Asian citrus psyllid sample and plant material taken from a lemon/pummelo tree in a residential neighborhood in the Hacienda Heights area of Los Angeles County. HLB is a bacterial disease that attacks the vascular system of plants. It does not pose a threat to humans or animals. The Asian citrus psyllid can spread the bacteria as the pest feeds on citrus trees and other plants. Once a tree is infected, there is no cure; it typically declines and dies within a few years. “Citrus is not just a part of California’s agricultural economy; it’s a cherished part of our landscape and our shared history,” said CDFA Secretary Karen Ross. “CDFA is moving swiftly to protect the state’s citrus growers as well as our residential trees and the many prized citrus plantings in our parks and other public lands. We have been planning and preparing for this scenario with our growers and our colleagues at the federal and local levels since before the Asian citrus psyllid was first detected here in 2008.” Officials are making ar-

rangements to remove and dispose of the infected tree and conduct treatment of citrus trees within 800 meters of the find site. By taking these steps, a critical reservoir of disease and its vectors will be removed, which is essential. More information about the program will be provided at an informational open house scheduled for Thursday, April 5, at the Industry Hills Expo Center, The Avalon Room, 16200 Temple Avenue, City of Industry, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. Treatment for HLB will be conducted with the oversight of the California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal-EPA) and will be conducted safely, with advance and follow-up notices provided to residents in the treatment area. An intensive survey of local citrus trees and psyllids is underway to determine the source and extent of the HLB infestation. Planning has begun for a quarantine of the infested area to limit the spread of the disease by restricting the movement of citrus trees, citrus plant parts, green waste, and all citrus fruit except what is commercially cleaned and packed. As part of the quarantine, citrus and closely related plants at nurseries in the area will be placed on hold. Residents of quarantine areas are urged not to remove or share citrus fruit, trees, clippings/grafts or related plant material. Citrus fruit may be harvested and

consumed on-site. CDFA, in partnership with the USDA, local agricultural commissioners and the citrus industry, continues to pursue a strategy of controlling the spread of Asian citrus psyllids while researchers work to find a cure for the disease. HLB is known to be present in Mexico and in parts of the southern U.S. Florida first detected the pest in 1998 and the disease in 2005, and the two have now been detected in all 30 citrus-producing counties in that state. The University of Florida estimates the disease has tallied more than 6,600 lost jobs, $1.3 billion in lost revenue to growers and $3.6 billion in lost economic activity. The pest and the disease are also present in Texas, Louisiana, Georgia and South Carolina. The states of Arizona, Mississippi and Alabama have detected the pest but not the disease. The Asian citrus psyllid was first detected in California in 2008, and quarantines are now in place in Ventura, San Diego, Imperial, Orange, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Bernardino and Riverside counties. If Californians believe they have seen evidence of HLB in local citrus trees, they are asked to please call CDFA’s toll-free pest hotline at 1-800491-1899.

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day - April 28 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), has scheduled a National Prescription Drug Take Back Day for Saturday, April 28, 2012, from 10:00 am ‐ 2:00 pm. This nationwide one-day collaborative partnership effort of state and local law enforcement will offer the best way for the public to dispose of unwanted and unused prescription drugs. National Prescription Drug Take Back Day addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. More than seven million Americans currently abuse prescription drugs, accord-

ing to the 2009 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Each day, approximately 2,500 teens use prescription drugs to get high for the first time according to the Partnership for a Drug Free America. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet. The DEA in conjunction with state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the United States previously conducted National Prescription Drug

Take Back Days on Saturday, September 25, 2010 and April 25, 2011. Nearly 4,000 state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the nation participated in these events, collecting more than 309 tons of pills. San Gabriel Police Department will act as an official drug collection site on Saturday, April 28, 2012. You may bring your unwanted prescription drugs to the San Gabriel Police Department, 625 South Del Mar Avenue, San Gabriel, CA 91776. For further information, contact Sgt. Brian Kott at (626) 308‐2845 or by email at bk076@sgpd.com.

tigations being conducted by the LA County District Attorney’s Office and the LA County Office of Independent Review on the events that led to this tragic shooting. In the days ahead, the Human Relations Commission will invite community members and partners to a dialogue. Through this dialogue, the Commission

hopes to develop partnerships with the community to avoid future tragedies of this type. The Commission has requested the assistance of the LA County Commission on Human Relations in support of these efforts.

As part of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) ongoing commitment to prioritizing the removal of criminal aliens and egregious immigration law violators, the agency announced today the results of a six-day national “Cross Check” enforcement operationwhich led to the arrest of more than 3,100 convicted criminal aliens, immigration fugitives and immigration violators, including 206 individuals in the Los Angeles area. “The results of this targeted enforcement operation underscore ICE’s ongoing commitment and focus on the arrest and removal of convicted criminal aliens and those that game our nation’s immigration system,” said ICE Director John Morton. “Because of the tireless efforts and teamwork of ICE officers and agents in tracking down criminal aliens and fugitives, there are 3,168 fewer criminal aliens and egregious immigration law violators in our neighborhoods across the country.” This six-day operation, the largest of its kind, involved the collaboration of more than 1,900 ICE officers and agents from all of ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations’ (ERO) 24 field offices, assistance from ICE Homeland Security Investigations as well as coordination with our federal, state and local law enforcement partners throughout the United States. Arrests occurred in all 50 states, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, three U.S. territories and the District of Columbia. ERO officers arrested 2,834 individuals who had prior criminal convictions including at least 1,063 aliens who had multiple criminal convictions. Of those arrested, 1,477 had felony convictions including murder, manslaughter, attempted murder, kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, terroristic threats, drug trafficking, child abuse, battery on a child, sexual crimes against minors, and aggravated assault. The arrestees also included 50

documented gang members and 149 convicted sex offenders. Of the 206 individuals taken into custody in the Los Angeles area, 106 had prior convictions for serious or violent crimes. Locally, Los Angeles County accounted for the largest number of arrests with 124, followed by Orange County (34); Riverside County (15); San Bernardino County (14); Ventura County (10); and Santa Barbara County (9). More than 70 of those arrested locally during the operation have already been removed from the United States. In addition to being convicted criminals, 698 of those arrested nationwide were also immigration fugitives who had previously been ordered to leave the country but failed to depart. Additionally, 559 were illegal re-entrants who had been previously removed from the country. Locally, 53 of those arrested were previously deported aliens who had illegally re-entered the country. Because of their serious criminal histories and prior immigration arrest records, at least 204 of those arrested nationwide during the enforcement action were presented to U.S attorneys for prosecution on a variety of charges including illegal re-entry after deportation, a felony which carries a penalty of up to 20 years in prison. The Los Angeles arrestees included: Veasna Uy, 34, a Cambodia national immigration fugitive residing in Long Beach, Calif., who was convicted in April 2000 of manslaughter, attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon. Uy remains in ICE custody pending removal from the United States. A twice deported 53-year-old Mexican national residing in Bell, Calif., who has two prior convictions for possession of narcotics for sale, most recently in 2004. This individual is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for felony re-entry after deportation. He has been turned over to the custody

of the U.S. Marshals Service pending those criminal proceedings. A 42-year-old Salvadoran national residing in North Hollywood, Calif., who was convicted in 1994 of arson and sentenced to 365 days in jail. He is being held by ICE without bond pending a hearing before an immigration judge. ICE conducted the first successful Cross Check operation in December 2009, and has since conducted seven regional and two national Cross Check operations resulting in the arrest of more than 7,400 convicted criminal aliens. This operation is the third nationwide Cross Check operation in the agency’s history. The first nationwide Cross Check operation occurred at the end of May 2011 and resulted in the arrest of 2,442 convicted criminal aliens. The last Cross Check operation in September 2011 resulted in the arrest of 2,901 convicted criminal aliens. Last week’s enforcement action was spearheaded by ICE’s National Fugitive Operations Program (NFOP), which is responsible for investigating, locating, arresting and removing at-large criminal aliens and immigration fugitives. The officers who conducted last week’s operation received substantial assistance from ICE’s Fugitive Operations Support Center (FOSC), ICE’s Law Enforcement Support Center (LESC) and the Criminal Alien Program. ICE is focused on smart, effective immigration enforcement that targets serious criminal aliens who present the greatest risk to the security of our communities, such as those charged with or convicted of homicide, rape, robbery, kidnapping, major drug offenses and threats to national security. ICE also prioritizes the arrest and removal of those who game the immigration system including immigration fugitives or those criminal aliens who have been previously deported and illegally re-entered the country.

Medication Committee Focus on Equine Safety Issues The CHRB Medication and Track Safety Committee will conduct a public meeting Wednesday, April 11, for discussion and action on a number of proposals relating to the safety of racehorses and the integrity of racing. The meeting will begin at 2 p.m. in the Baldwin Terrace Room at Santa Anita Park. The full agenda is available on the CHRB Website (www.chrb.ca.gov) under Board/Meeting Agendas. The committee actively addresses drug testing, veterinary practices, and track safety issues for the CHRB. Last year the CHRB expanded its collaboration with the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and entered into a research program with the Veterinary Orthopedic Research Laboratory (VORL) to better understand the reason for racing injuries to aid in developing

strategies to improve safety. Dr. Sue Stover, head of the VORL, will discuss an early off-shoot of that program, a computer based educational module for trainers explaining how and why racing and training injuries occur. The committee will revisit the issue of allowing a claim to be voided at the request of the claimant if the post-race sample contains a prohibited drug substance. The Board already has a rule in place voiding the claim if the horse is euthanized on the track. Under a separate proposal dealing with claiming races, the committee will discuss the impact of large purses for lower-level claimers and the advisability of raising the minimum claiming price or limiting purses for the lower-level claiming races in order to encourage responsible horse management practices.

The committee will again consider requiring the submission of six months of veterinary medical records for any horse that dies within the jurisdiction of the Board for the purpose of improving investigations into racing fatalities and the status of a voluntary computer-based medical history pilot program being developed as part of the CHRB/UC Davis research program. The committee will discuss and take action on a proposal to add the drugs zilpaterol and ractopamine to the prohibited practices list under CHRB Rule 1867 (Prohibited Veterinary Practices). The committee will also discuss the use of clenbuterol in California racing, including an update on the Board’s recent suspension of authorization for clenbuterol for quarter horses at Los Alamitos.

50th Annual Sierra Madre Art Fair – Featured Artist Announced

-Courtesy Photo

Alison Snow, chair of the 50th annual Friends of the Sierra Madre Library Art Fair is excited to announce that our featured artist is Carolyn Grantham Gravatte, a long-time resident and painter of Sierra Madre. Carolyn studied at Otis Art Institute and received early

training with master Fine Art painter Theo Heep of Germany and Sculpture Instructor Elizabeth Johnson of Monrovia. An accredited teacher of Sculpture, Drawing and Painting, Gravatte taught Portrait and Figure Sculpture and Oil Painting for many years, establish-

ing the Monrovia Sculpture Workshop. She has been an artist for over fifty years. After Carolyn quit teaching sculpturing classes that required heavy lifting loading and unloading kilns, her husband encouraged her to go back to painting just for fun, just for the love of it. She painted neighbors houses, our mountains and Eaton Canyon. “I thoroughly knew the classic way of painting”, she said,” but wanted to paint more impressionistically, more spontaneously, more passionately, if you will. One year I found the perfect teacher at our very own Art Fair and I do use some of those techniques to this day.” Gravatte has been painting a series of canvases featuring 'site specific' scenes around and about Sierra Madre. The first in the Sierra Madre series was “The Old North Church” painted in 2004. Using oils she paints in a Contemporary Traditional style with a touch of Impressionism - making pencil sketches, studies and painting on site - with the exception

of huge canvases which are painted in the studio. She has painted a canvas for us for our Art Fair. The site was chosen, with much thought, by the Art Committee as a treasured view of our town and our mountain Jones Peak.Entitled “It’s A Good Life”, the painting can now be seen hanging in the Library reference room. Gravatte will have a booth at the Art Fair so stop by her booth to see some of her other lovely work and maybe take a painting home. The Art Fair will take place in Memorial Park, 222 West Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre, on Saturday, May 5, from 9:30AM to 6:00PM and Sunday, May 6, from 9:30AM to 5:00PM and will feature works by artists and craftsmen in a wide variety of media, live music, food vendors, a children’s art project, and a silent auction. Proceeds from the Art Fair benefit the Sierra Madre Library. For more information, visit our website at sierramadrelibraryfriends.org or call 626 355-7186.
