American Family Legion- Post 280 Going Strong History Lives Here and Comes Alive Every Day

As Memorial Day rapidly approaches, I thought it time to focus on a few good men, and women, in Pasadena. Recently, I got to know some remarkable people at the American Legion post 280 in Pasadena and tried to figure out what makes this place tick! I’m not a veteran, nor

am I an American citizen but I am a legal, registered alien with a Green Card! Since I’m British, perhaps they cut me some slack as we are, after all, the strongest of allies. Nevertheless, these men and women welcomed me with open arms and I felt comfortable talking with these individuals , many of whom have not only served their country in many different operations from World War 11,

Korea and Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan, but hold a high reverence for their fellow man. These men and women personify respect. The old adage of old veterans ( particularly men) sitting around drinking and telling war stories in a dark and dingy bar simply isn’t an accurate portrayal of the American Legion , Post 280 Member Vietnam Veteran Ric Johnson told me. Boy

was he right! The American Legion is a social and mutual-aid veterans’ organization which includes members of the United States armed forces. The organization was founded in 1919 by veterans returning from Europe after World War I, and was later chartered as an official American patriotic society under Title 36 of the United States Code. The organization is

headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, and also has offices in Washington, DC. The group has nearly 3 million members in over 14,000 Posts worldwide. In addition to organizing commemorative events and volunteer veteran support activities, the American Legion is active in issue oriented U.S. politics. Its primary political ac-

Recently there has been a significant increase in deaths, medical emergencies and rescues in and around the Eaton Canyon Falls area on the border of Pasadena/ Altadena. In the past 12 months alone there have been over 60 rescues in the Canyon. Every response involves a coordinated effort of several public safety agencies with jurisdictional and technical expertise. These agencies have collaborated in producing a Public Service Announcement addressing safety concerns and misconceptions. Russ Guiney, Director - Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation and Assistant Chief Bill Niccum – Los Angeles County Fire Department talked with reporters and other first responders atEaton Canyon Nature Center Tuesday afternoon. Of particular note, authorities wish to stress is that there is no safe trail to the second waterfall as has been widely published on social media sites such as Facebook and YouTube. The terrian is dangerous and there is no

Assemblymember Anthony Portantino’s bill requiring legislators who have legislative vanity plates on their personal cars to pay the same fees paid by the general public for personalized plates, has passed its first legislative hurdle. AB 2068 was unanimously approved by the Assembly Transportation Committee this afternoon. “Most California driv-

ers who want personalized license plates, commonly referred to as vanity plates, have to pay an extra fee,” explained Assemblymember Portantino. “Even veterans pay the state an annual fee and just last week, the Assembly began discussion on whether or not to raise fees for veterans.

Dorothy's Place Not Across My Path

By Dorothy Denne Splat. Stick. Yuck. Oh God, where is it? Brush, brush, brush. I know it's on me somewhere. I just know it. Shiver. Brush, brush. Walking through my yard in the early morning hours is a real experience. My yard is not typical, as in manicured. It has no lawn, just flowers, plants, bushes, and trees. Lots of plants and bushes. Big plants, bushes

and trees, as in a jungle. The sidewalk runs between the flowers, plants and bushes. Spiders live there. Every night they stretch sticky strands from bush to bush across the walkway. Every morning I move along the walk waving a rolled paper in front of me. It usually works. At the end of the walk I turn left or right depending on where the morning paper has landed. To the right leads me under an arbor arch. This morning, as I turned to the archway, I was distracted by a lizard scampering in front of me. It was so cute. I failed to look up in time. SPLAT. Across the arch had

been one of those big lacy webs. It now hung in shreds. The spider that had probably been sitting in the middle waiting for its prey was missing. I knew it was somewhere on me. It just had to be. I'm arthritic stiff of mornings but this morning I could have auditioned for Dancing With The Stars with the dance I did. I never found the spider. I'd like to assume it saw me coming with the rolled paper and escaped before I arrived. I am sorry I destroyed its web. Those webs are such beautiful, intricate things. I leave them undisturbed to catch dew and dinner when they are among the plants. Not across my path.

What Else Can We Cut? by susan motander This newspaper recently received a press release from Assemblymember Anthony Portantion’s office regarding his measure to eliminate the perk of free vanity plates for State Legislators. While we applaud this effort, we wonder what other little items like

this exist in our state budget. This state is in the middle of a major financial crisis. We hear about it every day. There are ideas to raise taxes but what about ideas to cut spending? Portantino has come up with one small idea. There must be more.

It is time for someone to take a blue pencil to the state budget and look for other such absurd expenditures. This is one small step. Who will step forward to make an attempt at a larger leap?

County to Close Courtrooms A huge cut announced Tuesday will hit the Los Angeles county court system and will result in courtroom closures in Pasadena, Pomona, Alhambra, Norwalk, Whittier and downtownaccording to wire reports. Tuesday’s announcement came from Presiding

Judge Lee Edmon and Assistant Presiding Judge David Wesley. In a press release the two said $30 million will be slashed from the nation’s largest court system. The effects will be felt throughout the county. Besides the closures, approximately 100 non-court-

room employees will be laid off and court reporters in civil cases will no longer be paid for by the county. Among the 56 courtrooms slated for closure will be the downtown Los Angeles courtroom of Pasadena resident Judge Lance Ito.

To Hold On, or to Let Go?

Fremont Centre Theatre's Poignant New Play by courtney blackburn

Iona Morris and Barry Wiggins in “Holding On~ Letting Go” at Fremont Centre Theatre. -Photo by Carla Fallberg

Death is not an uncommmon subject in the theatrical world. The great playwright Shakespeare himself had an entire series of works in the genre of “Tragedy”, and the body count in most of those was rather high. The consensus seems to be that death happens, regardless of any plans one might have had. Native Pasadenean Bryan Harnetiaux scripts the stage to explore this mortal dilemma in “Holding On~Letting Go”, a world premier play which recently opened at the Fremont Centre Theatre in South Pasadena. Long-married couple Bobby and Lee are at odds over a giant problem: Bobby’s terminal illness. Diagnosed with wide-spread cancer at age 51, Bobby can feel the fight leaving his body--a fight that Lee, an award-winning basketball coach, desperately wants to win. She’s holding on; he’s ready to let go. The story examines the real, physical acts of grief, acceptance, and, above all else, love. This 75-seat theatre is the

ideal setting for the intimate drama that asks the eternal questions about death. The audience is very close to the couple, practically watching them interact from the “window” outside their house. The stage is beautifully designed and lit, and original, subtle music supports the cast. And what a cast--Iona Morris is dynamic, damaged, and tender as Lee, while Barry Wiggins’ clear pain and struggle in portraying Bobby’s terminal illness infuses every move he makes. The supporting cast fits beautifully in the emotional story: from Amanentha Dymally as Bobby’s hilarious mother to Jill Remez as the collected hospice worker Virginia, Lamar Hughes as Gabe, the uncertain but caring social worker and Christian Malmin as Roger, the knowing interfaith Chaplain. Most of the cast has extensive screen experience and it shows in the nuance and sophistication of these naturalistic portrayals of real people dealing with a real part of life. The reality of hospice liv-

ing and end-of-life care were meticulously researched and are respectfully portrayed. Vitas Innovative Hospice Care partnered with the production to ensure that the play accurately reflected real careworkers’dedication to this trying time for families. The Fremont Centre Theatre strongly supports hospice care and provides information for any viewer who would like to know more. This show is intense and best for mature audiences; “mature” in the sense that one can understand that death is distressing, and that tears may come while watching. It is also quite funny; reaching both the highest and the lowest points of the soul. For example, Mother May once gives the advice to Lee that termites can be exterminated with only “white vinegar and rock n’ roll”. Such laughs punctuate the entire time, until the end comes--but even still, the end of this story is not merely sadness. To say more would be to spoil the brilliantly staged “Holding On~Letting Go”, which is as good as it gets as far as theatre going goes. WHAT: “Holding On~Letting Go”. WHERE: Fremont Centre Theatre, 1000 Fremont Ave (at El Centro), South Pasadena, CA 91030. Ample parking behind theatre.

Fish and Game Required to Track and Transmit Report on Annual Kangaroo Harvest Brown Seeks to Eliminate such Unnecessary Reports

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today released a list of more than 700 unnecessary bureaucratic reports currently required by law and called on the state legislature to eliminate them in order to streamline government and reduce waste. “It wastes a lot of time and money to write, track and file these reports,” said Governor Brown. “Government should be focused on providing information that is actually helpful to taxpayers, not on checking boxes to meet outdated bureaucratic requirements.” In December 2011 Governor Brown issued Ex-

ecutive Order B-14-11 which directed state agencies and departments to audit all reports that they must submit to the Legislature and identify those that are not of significant value. Examples identified in this audit include: A biennial report, required by 1966 statute, by the Department of Boating and Waterways on the status of their operations. An annual report by the Australian Government on their annual kangaroo harvest, which the Department of Fish and Game is required to track and transmit to the legislature.

An annual report by the Department of Transportation on the use of waste tires. A monthly report on response and recovery activities tied to the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Of the 718 reports identified overall, 375 require legislative action to eliminate. Today Governor Brown directed the state Department of Finance (DOF) to ask the state legislature to end reporting requirements. DOF will direct the Legislative Counsel to stop tracking of the remaining 343 reports, which will effectively end agency and department production requirements.

Armenian Community, City to Commemorate Armenian Genocide On the 97th anniversary of the beginning of what became known as the Armenian Genocide, the local Armenian community will join with Pasadena officials to mark the occasion with ceremonies at city hall. Tuesday, April 24, from 10 to 11:30 a.m., residents from area Armenian organizations, churches and schools will gather to remember the systematic killing of as many as 1.5 million Armenians from 1915 through 1923 in what was then the Ottoman Empire.

The United States Marine Corps will perform the official salute and about 40 elected public leaders and representatives are expected to attend. The city hall commemoration is an annual event. “It’s a time of remembrance of all the lives lost,” said Armenian Community Coalition Chairman Khatchik Chris Chahinian, “and it’s a call for the official recognition of this terrible suffering.” While 43 American states, including California,

and more than 20 countries officially recognize the deaths as an act of genocide, the United States has not officially done so. The Republic of Turkey, the successor government to the Ottoman Empire, does not accept the term “genocide” in reference to the Armenian deaths. Pasadena City Hall is located at 100 N. Garfield. For more information about this year’s event call 626399-1799 or visit the Armenian Community Coalition of Pasadena at www.acc-us. org.

A Look into Sustainable Living in the San Gabriel Valley By Krishna Rajagopalan The Pasadena Earth and Art Festival was held on April 14th, 2012 at Memorial Park in Pasadena. The public was invited to explore the many ways to “go green” as well be introduced to some of Pasadena’s most well known environmental organizations and activists. Organizations that were present included the Pasadena Department of Water and Power (PDWP), Amnesty International, County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works, and the Pasadena Public Library. The Pasadena Department of Water and Water had a light bulb display that showed how much energy one light bulb uses versus several put together. Among the other displays were a solar powered attic, a fan demonstration, and a refrigerator exchange program in which the PDWP will pick up your old refrigerator free of charge and provide you with a low energy refrigerator so long as you qualify. Also on hand was Bike San Gabriel valley, an organization that advo-

cates for bikers in the San Gabriel valley. However, the fair was not limited to displays from local organizations. There was a performance by native tribal dancers as well as live music that visitors could enjoy. Food was available for sale from vendors such as Pita Pita located in Pasadena. Visitors also enjoyed the environmentally friendly beer garden among the other festivities the festival had to offer. On a more personal level, the Pasadena Department of Public works advertised a program wherein residents could call the department’s number if they felt that their neighborhood was in need of more trees and the department would then schedule a tree planting in the resident’s neighborhood. Similar organizations that were present included Pasadena Beautiful, the Theodore Payne Foundation, and the Arroyo Seco Foundation that focuses on conservation, water quality and preventing pollution. Other features of the

festival included a clothing sale put on by Lucy and Mei Certified Organic Cotton Clothing as well as wood products for sale including bird callers, cooking utensils, serving trays and animal decorations. Vendors also displayed some of the most environmentally friendly plants that are available locally. There was also a light energy display which included a seven minute relaxation technique which was sponsored by Sukyo Mahikari. All in all, the festival was an excellent way for people of all ages to find out what steps they can take to protect their environment. Activities for all ages including children exposed them to the benefits of environmentally friendly practices. Activities for children included a scavenger hunt as well as an arts and crafts table. This event was clearly a time for people to reflect on what steps they are taking and should be taking in the future to make the environment as conducive to human life as possible.

Portantino's Bill Continued from page 1

and retired legislators get their personalized license plates almost for free.” Under existing law, current and retired Assemblymembers and State Senators can ask the DMV for a license plate that designates them as a state legislator or retired state legislator. They pay for the initial plate and don’t have to pay an annual renewal fee - ever. In contrast, average Californians, retired police and fire included, pay $49

to $98 for a special plate and $38 to $78 for annual renewals. The DMV estimates that over the life of the program, it has issued almost 700 California legislator license plates with 116 currently in use and another 65 unregistered. “In another bit of irony, license plate fees are used to partially fund the California Highway Patrol. So, when legislators don’t pay the full fee, they are

in effect, stiffing the CHP,” Portantino said. “It just looks bad. At a time of economic belt-tightening, when you have student fees rising and classrooms bulging; when you have padlocked parks and cuts everywhere, why should legislators get a special break, even a small one?” Portantino does not use an Assembly plate and has no plans to receive one upon retirement.

Suspect Pleads Guilty to Sex Offense On December 30, 2011, the Pasadena Police Department responded to a residence in Pasadena concerning child molestation allegations. Officers contacted the family of a four-year-old victim and determined that the suspect, who is a relative of the child, committed lewd acts. The suspect, Miguel Angel Garcia MH 1/26/87, a Pasadena resident, was arrested and during questioning by the police admitted to the crime. On January 3, 2012,

the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office filed three felony counts of Penal Code Section 288(a), lewd and lascivious acts upon a child under the age of 14-years-old. On March 12, 2012, Mr. Garcia pled guilty to one count of 288(a) lewd acts with a child. Mr. Garcia remains in custody with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. He is also being held on an Immigration hold. During the investigation, Pasadena Police De-

tectives learned Mr. Garcia was previously employed as a substitute teacher. As a precaution, detectives notified the facility of the arrest and administrators notified parents. No additional criminal allegations have been brought forth and there are no indications of other victims. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pasadena Police Detectives at (626) 744-4241 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-Tips.

Shakespeare Ensemble to Perform Twelfth Night at Descanso Gardens

New Shakespeare Ensemble to Debut at Descanso on April 21 RECYCLE YOUR... GLASS PLASTIC ALUMINUM E-WASTE AND SHOP FOR AMAZING VALUES AT OUR THRIFT STORE

THRIFT STORE

Three working actors had an idea one evening over dinner: what if they got the best Shakespearean actors they knew, then stripped their favorite plays down to only the words and the people? No fairy costumes. No artificial inflection. Just a dogged determination to tell the story at hand. By the end of dinner, the California Shakespeare Ensemble was born. The ensemble is based on the idea of a supergroup; it is a side project for currently working actors, and an incubator for up-andcoming actors. Some in the ensemble are the stars of hit TV shows (Ken Baumann on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, David Blue from Stargate: Universe and Ugly Betty), and some in the ensemble are fresh from training at NYU, RADA, and Shakespeare’s Globe in London. Roles are cast from

the ensemble without regard to name recognition. The ensemble will be performing a staged reading of Twelfth Night, one of Shakespeare’s most-loved c o m edies. Why a staged reading? The focus in theater during Shakespeare’s time was m u c h more on the act of listening -Courtesy Photo and use of one’s imagination than in today’s visually lavish performances. The wealthy patrons of the arts paid extra to be in seats that sometimes barely had a view of the stage, but which allowed them to hear

the words being spoken by the actors. The ensemble seeks to revive the art of telling grand stories with only actors and words. The show goes like this: the actors assemble on stage in a semicircle of chairs, w i t h music stands set up in front of the audience. E a c h scene brings new actors forward towards the audience to act their scenes with their scripts on music stands, and at the end of the scene the actors return to their seats and watch the following scene happen,

along with the audience. It is fast-paced and fun, and will have even Shakespearean “newbies” understanding and enjoying. WHAT: “Twelfth Night”, a staged reading of a play by William Shakespeare. WHO: The California Shakespeare Ensemble, a new theatrical side project of working actors in Los Angeles. This performance features: Ken Baumann (series lead on the popular ABC Family show The Secret Life of the American Teenager, David Blue (series lead on Stargate: Universe, series regular on Ugly Betty), and others. WHERE: Descanso Gardens’ beautiful Under The Oaks Theater. WHEN: April 21st at 3:30. ADMISSION: FREE with admission to the park. No reservations are necessary, but get there early to assure the best seating. WEBSITE: www.californiashakespeare.org

Sierra Madre Librarian Retires A retirement party on March 29 was attended by Sierra Madre Library staff, who celebrated Margaret Duran’s 46 years of service to the Library. At 82 years young, Margaret has been an active member of the community “for more years than she can remember.” In 2009 she received the prestigious Sierra Madre George Maurer Lifetime Service and Volunteer Award in recognition of her many years of dedicated service to the City. Margaret began her professional library career in Sierra Madre in 1966, after completing graduate

courses in Library Science at Immaculate Heart University in Los Angeles. She quickly became known as a champion of literacy and for her unrivaled reference expertise. A committed library advocate, she frequently gave public “book talks” emphasizing the importance of reading, always alerting patrons to new and noteworthy library acquisitions. Margaret’s exemplary research, evaluation and cataloguing skills are indelibly “stamped” on the Library’s 24,000 volumes of Reference and Non-fiction works. Up until her retirement, she was responsible for selecting and maintaining the books in these collections. Margaret is the author of several booklets on the history of Sierra Madre, including Sierra Madre Public Library: Our Story (1976), Sierra Madre Library 1887-1987: A Centennial Celebration, and A Story of a Quilt, written in 1977 when the Sierra Madre Historical Quilt was unveiled. The quilt project was one she helped conceive and coordinate, which was a two-year, community-wide effort celebrating the U.S Centennial. Sierra Madre citizens designed and sewed quilt squares representing

the City’s organizations as well as scenes and qualities unique to the town. On March 29 the colorful but now-fragile quilt was brought out of storage and displayed in the Library in her honor. Margaret loves to travel, and over the years she shared some of her adventures in five Travelers and Collectors presentations held at the Library. Her program highlighting her experiences attending the extravagant and “scandalous” wedding of her friend, who happened to be a British Earl, to a beautiful Brazilian banker, garnered the all-time highest attendance (175) for the popular armchair travelers series. Margaret is a familiar face at Sunday Mass at St. Rita Church, where she regularly serves as a Eucharistic minister and lector. Though retired from the Library, she continues to don her “librarian cap” every Friday morning, as she has for decades, volunteering at the Mater Dolorosa Retreat Center where she maintains the center’s collection of theological works. Margaret and David, her husband of 60 years, raised four children in Sierra Madre, and have lived in town for most of their married life.

Tap Chicks at Sierra Madre Playhouse May 6 The Tap Chicks are seasoned tap dancers who dazzle with youthful energy. A favorite at the L.A. County Fair for many years, their previous performances at the Sierra Madre Playhouse have sold out. The Tap Chicks were originally formed at Pasadena Senior Center. They are choreographed by Pam Kay, who also provides musical accompaniment, comedy and vocals. The fully costumed act dances to music rang-

ing from Broadway tunes to 40s favorites to contemporary songs. The dancers are mature in years (ranging in ages from 50 to 84) but young at heart. You don’t have to drive all the way to Palm Springs to see an act like this. It’s coming to Sierra Madre. It’s a good idea to reserve tickets. The Tap Chicks have a following and strong demand for tickets is expected. Their last eight appearances have sold out. This is their first per-

formance at Sierra Madre Playhouse in two years, and they’re back with new material and new costumes. The Tap Chicks will perform Sunday, May 6, 2012, 7:30 p.m. Sierra Madre Playhouse is located at 87 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre. Tickets are $20 general, $17 seniors (65+), $12 for children under 12. For reservations, call (626) 355-4318 or online ticketing at www. sierramadreplayhouse.org.

‘Jewels of the Night' Sparkles At the annul Commission and Silver Circle Volunteers Dinner on April 9th, guests were entertained in the Paddock Gardens at Santa Anita. The Alfresco dinner and dancing was a sparkling event that included a delicious three course dinner and great music. A high-

light was meeting the new City Manager, Dominic Lazzaretto. Mayor Gary Kovacic and Council members were hosts of the evening. Each department head was introduced and in turn, they introduced members of the commission and volunteers working in their respective de-

partments. The staff in the Mayor’s/City Manager’s office are responsible for the success. The night was one of the best ever. The overall ambience outstanding. A great way to say thank you to the dedicated volunteers.

Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley Supports National Campaign Encouraging Young People to ‘Get Yourself Tested’ The fourth annual GYT: Get Yourself Tested campaign kicks off National STD Awareness Month (April) with new initiatives on-air, online, and in more than 5,000 health centers across the nation. GYT is a national campaign supported by a broad coalition of partners, including Planned Parenthood, designed to address the high rates of STDs among those under 25. In support of GYT, Planned Parenthood Pasadena & San Gabriel Valley will offer STD testing at no cost to patients on Wednesday, April 18th from 5:00pm to 9:00pm at their location at 1045 N. Lake Avenue in Pasadena. Planned Parenthood health

centers offer low or no cost STD testing throughout the year, and they welcome patients of every background. “Getting tested for sexually transmitted infections is a basic part of staying healthy,” said Sheri Bonner, President of Planned Parenthood Pasadena & San Gabriel Valley. “Fear, lack of health insurance, and misinformation keep too many people from getting tested. The truth is, testing is easier than ever before, and Planned Parenthood is here to help everyone stay healthy, year after year.” As many as one in two sexually active young people will contract an STD by age 25 — and most won’t know

it. According to the CDC, approximately half of the estimated 19 million STDs occurring in the United States each year are among people 25 and younger. GYT encourages young people to talk with health care providers and partners about getting tested for STDs. Extensive information resources — including a dedicated website (www.GYTnow. org), which provides basic information about common STDs, talking tips, and a zip code locator to find local testing locations — as well as a mobile testing locator, GYTNOW (498669) — provide the audience with more information.

The Pasadena Unified School District is preparing to issue layoff notices to 78 employees at the end of the academic year. State law requires that employees with a credential such as teachers and administrators be notified of their termination by March 15. Classified employees such as office and facilities workers would be notified of their layoffs in May. Programs that could potentially be cut include elementary music instruction, secondary library positions, as well as a kindergarten staffing reduction, based on a state plan to push back the student start date. The cuts follow a possible worst case scenario of the tax initiative on the November ballot not passing. If the tax initiative doesn’t pass, then the district must plan for a reduction of about $7 million in state revenue for the 2012-2013 school year. The 2012-2013 school year could also include five unpaid days for district employees, which the district’s union has yet to negotiate. The certificated positions that are subject to receiving reduction-in-force notices are 27 elementary school teachers and 20 elementary school resource teachers and five of those positions are administrative. Union negotiation may help reduce the number of layoffs. According to Ed Honowitz, the board

member who chairs the finance subcommittee, 85% of the total operating budget is people. The potential cuts could reach up to $17.1 million assuming the tax initiative for schools on the November ballot doesn’t pass, according to John Pappalardo, the district’s chief finance officer. However, despite the severity of the budget cuts there is hope for the school district to keep important programs intact. Currently the Pasadena Educational Foundation (PEF) provides much of the needed funding for the school district including providing summer school for students as well as supporting the district’s fine arts programs including drama, music and art. Currently the fine arts teachers are hired on a part time basis due to lack of funding that the district receives. Even though they are only hired part time much of that funding comes from the educational foundation. The educational foundation is crucial in current times where the district’s budget does not allow for the funding of additional programs such as the fine arts or extracurricular activities students are involved in. The Pasadena Educational Foundation recently launched the PEF Art and Music Campaign which urges community members to donate funds that will allow the PUSD to continue to offer

music and art programs such as instrumental music lessons or every elementary student. All of the donations will be used to support music teachers, elementary art supplies, elementary choir programs, a visual arts coach, music festivals, museum visits, and an all-district art show. The summer school that is sponsored by the educational foundation provides enrichment as well as academic courses for students in a fee per course format that are mostly taught by certificated teachers. “The summer school provides classes for students such as school of rock, cooking and algebra said Traude Gomez,” Communications Writer for the Pasadena Educational Foundation. The summer school courses do not receive funding from the state and are thus supported entirely by fundraising. Without the support of community members the summer school and fine arts programs may not exist due to the lack of funding. On April 20, the educational foundation will host a public event in Paseo Colorado where talented musicians from four Pasadena schools will perform for the community. On May 4, the 7th annual No Boundaries student artwork exhibition will be held in Pasadena. The Foundation requests that people donate online at www. pasedfoundation.org/ARTS.

Pasadena Doo Dah Parade - 35th Anniversary - April 28 The Pasadena Doo Dah Parade marks its 35th year on Saturday, April 28th, stepping off at 11:00am in East Pasadena. Known as the twisted sister of the traditional Rose Parade, Doo Dah began as a grassroots event in 1978 to gain national attention for its eccentric and, often, irreverent satire. The parade which has spawned numerous offbeat replicants across the country was named by Readers Digest as America's Best Parade, and was recently fea-

tured in the book 50 Places You Must Visit Before You Die! Last year, scores of inventive, if zany, mutant art cars and floats accompanied a legion of frolickers past the mom-n-pop shops along East Pasadena's shady tree-lined streets. Many first-timers will be back like the League of Steam, Conehead Rocket Sled, Hippie Cream, Easy Acres Chicken Sitters, Balkan Brass Band and Mile High Bed joined veteran crowd

favorites like The Army of Toy Soldiers, Mobile Cupcakes, the BBQ & Hibachi Marching Grill Team, Boo Boo Kitty, The Billionaires, the immortal Doo Dah house band Snotty Scotty & the Hankies, and many, many more! After-parties on and near the parade route, souvenir t-shirts, and food trucks at Chefs Center lot. For more info please call Doo Dah Hotline at (626) 590-7596 or visit www.pasadenadoodahparade.info. One of the all time favorite Doo Dah Queens, Michelle Mills, likes playing dangerously – she writes for a living.

Diane Patrizzi of Pasadena, also known as “Patrizzia Intergalactica,” persuaded the judges that she was far and away the best choice for this year’s Doo Dah Queen.

Senior Homecare – Pending Legislation Impacting California Seniors The senior care industry in California is growing all around us as baby-boomers transition into retirement by the millions each year. For senior citizens and their families, the choices available for various kinds of assistance are myriad and multiplying. Here in California and on the federal level, new legislation is coming together to better regulate and license the nonmedical homecare sector. There has never been any governmental oversight in California, so it’s possible for almost anyone to open a business providing companionship and non-medical services in senior citizens’ homes. Given the rising number of mail and telemarketing scams targeting seniors today, it stands to reason you want to be equally careful whenever you are hiring someone to come into your home. More oversight is welcomed by professionally managed and conscientious companies for attempting to weed out lessthan-conscientious competitors, and providing a way for seniors and their families to determine the difference.

But as often happens, the two bills may have swelled and been co-opted to the point where they are reaching too far and creating more problems than they solve. The regulation, while beneficial to a point, is likely to force homecare companies to adopt practices that both interfere with their quality and continuity of services, and raise their cost of doing business. The result will mean higher priced services across a very popular and vital industry. What is Non-Medical Homecare? Non-medical Senior Homecare has become a prolific industry in California and throughout the country. Local and regional agencies employ caregivers that provide living assistance in private homes. These caregivers provide non-medical assistance with meal preparation, hygiene and personal care, transportation, light housekeeping, medication reminders and more. Seniors overwhelmingly prefer staying in their own homes, and the use of private caregivers has greatly increased

up to 24 hours per day, and the senior cannot be left alone. There are many natural breaks throughout the day, but the caregiver does not physically leave the premises. Because of the nature of the work, personal attendants are exempt for overtime pay; they are also exempt from specified meal and rest periods. There are currently both Federal and State exemptions in place. These exemptions help keep these privately paid services affordable and possible for seniors choosing to remain safely at home with caregiver assistance. From a Federal perspective, President Obama and the U.S. Department of Labor have called for an end to the companionship services exemption for home care workers through a federal regulation which would require overtime pay and minimum wage for companion workers providing non-medical care to clients at home. To counter that proposed policy change, federal legislation (H.R. 3066, the Companionship Exemption Protection Act) by Representative Lee Terry (R-NE) has been introduced to ensure the current definition of companionship services is maintained. California Assembly Bill 889 (Ammiano) is also challenging this exemption. AB 889 is calling for the elimination of the overtime exemption and the meal & rest period exemption. Eliminating these exemptions will dramatically increase costs to seniors. Caregivers will be scheduled for a maximum of 8 hour shifts and 40 hours per week. Continuity of care will suffer. Agencies will hire more caregivers in lieu of paying overtime. Mandated meal and rest periods will require alternate caregivers to cover breaks. The removal of this exemption is highly impractical and logistically near impossible. California Licensing The homecare industry in California does need regulation to assure consumer and employee safety. Although minimum standards are established, many agencies do not comply since there is no oversight. The California Association for Health Services at Home (CAHSAH.org) established homecare agency certification in 2007 to help consumers and the healthcare referral community assure agency minimum stan-

dards are being met. Over 200 agencies are certified, and CAHSAH believes that this certification is an important step toward compliance in California. California Senate Bill 411 (Price) is currently in Sacramento. This bill requires agencies to be licensed and follow aforementioned standards in hiring and protecting employees. CAHSAH, along with the homecare industry believe that these standards are important and necessary to assure safety for seniors and caregivers alike. SB 411 also includes requirements for each individual caregiver to be certified annually and to be registered on a public website. This public website poses a security and privacy concern for home care aides, who are mostly women, and may not want their location and employer made public. CAHSAH considers this unnecessary and excessive. The Department of Social Services Estimates the cost of SB 411 at $25 Million every year and $3 million in upfront costs. The majority of these costs are associated with the certification of home care aides, and the development and maintenance of the website. In addition, homecare agencies will bear a burden of $20K - $30K annually to certify and register their employees. This is at least four times the licensing cost of Home Health Agencies in California, who provide skilled medical services. This additional cost to homecare companies will ultimately be passed along to the seniors they serve since virtually all services are paid privately with no public money. CAHSAH and the Homecare Industry is working diligently to amend this SB411 and to defeat AB889 in California. On a federal level, CAHSAH encourages support for H.R. 3066, the Companionship Exemption Protection Act. Home care providers are gathering support for this legislation by reaching out to congressional representatives and asking them to cosponsor this important bill. Congress has the authority to intervene and keep the companionship exemption in place. Congressional members need to be aware of how important it is to maintain the exemption so that home care remains affordable and accessible.

American Family Legion- Post 280

Continued from page 1

tivity is lobbying on behalf of the interests of veterans and service members, including support for veterans benefits such as pensions and the Veterans Affairs hospital system. However this is a really cold, albeit antiseptic and somewhat clinical explanation of what the organization really is. To understand the Legion one has to get to know the people behind these doors and walls ; those behind the scenes and the people who cook up that wonderful Spaghetti dinner once a month…(All you can eat for $7….try to beat that!) And no, this not really a private, exclusive club as I have been led to believe all these years. It’s open to anyone as a guest of a member ( i.e. someone needs to sponsor you) and the majority of events held at Post 280 are generally in their large hall and anyone can attend those, often at no charge. I was privileged to sit in on one of Post 280’s Executive meetings recently and was very impressed how Commander Peter Douglas 111 conducted said meeting and the considerable thought and respect he gave to each issue raised regarding how the Post spends its limited resources. It should be noted that Commander Douglas served in the United States AirForce from 19681972. A more thoughtful group of men you’d be hard pressed to find – anywhere. This particular legion has been home, away from home for many a veteran but about anyone is welcome to pop in and experience the American Legion, find out more about the organization and perhaps even join. We caught up with Commander Douglas as he was cooking for 50 retired JPL employees on Wednesday morning. Food and camaraderie are a big part of the Legion’s daily activities. The Legion also puts on a great breakfast once a month and anyone is welcome to stop in for a real bargain and home cooking. Also don’t forget the famous Spaghetti Dinner which is also once a month. I was truly delighted when I discovered a musical treasure trove last week. Commander Peter Douglas III invited me for dinner, for which I didn’t really have time, but made a casual mention of a Big Band outfit that played there every Thursday. I had to stay for a tune or two! I stayed for per-

13

haps and hour and half. Being a Jazz fan (as well as a drummer in one of my many other lives), I was intrigued and sat down to watch these seasoned men and women arrive at the legion Hall, set up and start playing one of the great standards. They don’t have roadies or groupies ( at least yet) These guys are pros, they’ve been around the block and played with the top names in the business like Artie Shaw, and other greats including the Tonight Show Band when Johnny Carson was on the air. Trumpets, flu gel horns, trombones, guitar , stand up bass, a beautiful set of Gretsch drums , saxophones, flutes and clarinets…wow… what an amazing sound suddenly filled the almost empty hall, dimly lit hall. The tightly executed compositions simply force your attention and get your hands clapping till they’re raw after each solo . I couldn’t believe no one knew about these guys, I felt as if I had just discovered Count Basie or Glenn Miller. Big Band every Thursday night courtesy of Ray Atwan and his amazing 1516 piece big band. Ray’s group typically consists of seasoned musicians from some of the biggest names in music history. This well-kept secret has been going on for about two years Atwan tells me. I was stunned that I was one of a handful of people fortunate enough to witness such amazing talent last Thursday. I’m coming back here next Thursday for some more of this incredible and group of musicians…they are one cool group of cats. On top of that, the Canteen serves Fat Tire beer, a rather nice and refreshing ale among other libations.. Ok, so it’s not the Ritz….it’s not trying to be, but the talent you’ll see here is better than anything you’ll see at fancy hotels or clubs, to this I can personally attest. In addition to the great jazz on Thursdays, the Post will host the official Doo Dah Party coming up on April 28. With more great music, albeit of a different ilk. On this particular Saturday April 28, post parade, you’ll find some legendary Pasadena musicians including Snotty Scotty, The Horses on Astroturf people and of course, lots of local rock star guests not to mention the endless stream of characters

who’ll be strolling in and out of costume throughout the day and evening the last Saturday in April. Additionally the Canteen bookstore has books and VHS tapes for your

enjoyment. A really cool lending library, where you don’t even need to return the items. The Post also offers early morning movies….and apparently quite a selection. In addition to being a good neighbor, these people also can offer their hall for rental when not in use. Give em a call for very competitive rates. If I learn one thing in life, it is that human beings have a remarkable ability to be kind to fellow man, and in no place is this more abundantly clear than in the American Legion, Post 280. To become a member: If you have served federal active duty in the United States Armed Forces during any of the war eras listed below, and have been honorably discharged or are still serving -- you are eligible for membership in The American Legion! *August 2, 1990 to today(Operation Desert Shield/Storm)December 20, 1989 to January 31, 1990(Operation Just Cause - Panama) August 24, 1982 to July 31, 1984(Lebanon/Grenada) February 28, 1961 to May 7, 1975(Vietnam)June 25, 1950 to January 31, 1955(Korea) December 7, 1941 to December 31, 1946(World War II)April 6, 1917 to November 11, 1918(World War I) There is also the American Legion Auxiliary: Founded in 1919, The American Legion Auxiliary has almost 1 million members from all walks of life. The Auxiliary administers

charities familiar to Americans. It is all accomplished with volunteers. While originally organized to assist The American Legion, the Auxiliary has achieved its own unique

identity while working sideby-side with the veterans who belong to The American Legion. Like the Legion, the Auxiliary’s interests have broadened to encompass the entire community. The American Legion Auxiliary is the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization. Through its nearly 10,500 units located in every state and some foreign countries, the Auxiliary embodies the spirit of America that has prevailed through war and peace. Along with The American Legion, it solidly stands behind America and her ideals For God and Country, the Legion and auxiliary associates themselves together for the following purposes: To uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America; To maintain law and order; To foster and perpetuate a one hundred percent Americanism; To preserve the memories and incidents of our associations during the Great Wars; To inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state, and nation; To combat the autocracy of both the classes

and the masses; To make right the master of might; To promote peace and goodwill on earth; To safeguard and transmit to posterity the principles of justice, freedom, and democracy; To participate in and contribute to the accomplishment of the aims and purposes of The American Legion; To consecrate and sanctify our association by our devotion to mutual helpfulness. Also if you are a son of a former military member, you could be eligible for the distinct honor of Sons of the American Legion. Sons of The American Legion members include males of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the U.S. military and were eligible for American Legion membership. They’ve been Chartered since 1922. See what you’ve been missing and learn a little history by visiting your local American Legion and talk to some of your fellow Americans …I’m glad we did.

Sierra Madre Library Awarded Local History Preservation Grant The California Preservation Program recently announced that the Sierra Madre Public Library has been awarded a $4,000 Collection Assessment Preservation Grant for its Local History collection. The California Preservation Assessment Project (CPAP) is designed to help small and mid-sized libraries and archives plan improvements for the care of their historical collections. A preservation consultant will visit the Library to

help implement the assessment. A survey of the collection, including scope and scale of preservation needs, is an essential first step in creating a plan for enhanced collection care. Institutions that have completed collection assessments are more likely to receive additional funding for preservation work. When asked what impact she anticipates the award will have on the Library’s Archives, Debbie Henderson, Associate Librarian for

the Archival Collection, said, “Our Local History collection has worked hard for us over the last ten years with the Centennial Celebration and the publication of Southern California Story: Seeking the Better Life in Sierra Madre. It is imperative that we review the collection as a whole and address its preservation and conservation needs.” The Sierra Madre Public Library is one of ten California repositories that received the award.

POLICE BLOTTERS Arcadia PD

For the period of Sunday, April 8th, through Saturday, April 14th, the Police Department responded to 1,039 calls for service of which 120 required formal investigations. The following is a summary report of the major incidents handled by the Department during this period. Sunday, April 8: Around 6:49 p.m., an officer responded to the 000 block of South Baldwin Avenue regarding a theft report. Unknown suspect(s) stole a bicycle from the resident’s patio. The officer determined the suspect(s) forced entry through the patio fence, which surrounded the location. No one saw or heard anything suspicious. At approximately 7:17 p.m., officers responded to the Arcadia Police Department front counter regarding a fraud report. The victim explained she was aware that one of her friends was going on a trip to Europe soon. She received an email from her friend stating she had lost her passport and credit cards in Wales, and needed a wire transfer to come back home.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself.

Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, this information can be obtained from one of the following two companies: LPS Agency Sales & Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting & Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com (Click on the link for “Advanced Search” to search for sale information), using the Trustee Sale No. shown above.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on a property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case 10-0145655. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

Taking it to the Streets: Scores of Postal Workers, Occupy LA and Pasadena and other groups joined forces Tuesday evening to protest the massive cuts the Post Office is facing more than 100 post offices in California may close. -Photo by Terry Miller

About 50 protestors took to the streets Tuesday night at The Mack Robinson Center in Pasadena which is one of several US Mail processing facilities scheduled to close. The message was clear and precise “ We love our Mailman” read one sign while another pointed out how inexpensive a stamp is compared to the other mail and overnight specialists out there competing for post office business. The center at the corner of Orange Grove Boulevard and Lincoln Avenue still bears the name of a Pasadena legend. But its passing will close the books on a bygone era according to some. The internet has played a significant role in how we transmit messages worldwide but there is still a great need for the daily delivery of US mail all over the country, particularly in rural areas. Postal executives claim that email and social networks are killing the fine art of the written word with a pen. But something else has hurt the post office for years - the agency’s pension plan. The pension plan is fully funded 75 years into the future. The decline in letter-carrying will continue and the bulk of facilities will shift focus to dropping off parcels. With big postal cuts looming, the Senate is deciding whether to stabilize the ailing U.S. Postal Service

with a short-term cash infusion while delaying most decisions on closing post offices and ending Saturday mail delivery by requiring further review. The mail agency, which is really on the brink of bankruptcy say experts, says it needs to begin closing thousands of low-revenue post offices and mail processing centers this year like the newly named Mack Robinson Center as part of a billion-dollar cost-cutting effort to become profitable again by 2015. But Pasadena is worried about the economic impact and tens of thousands of layoffs, drawing the concerns of lawmakers in an election year. Late last year, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe agreed to delay closings until May 15 so that Congress would have time to pass legislation to shore up the agency’s finances. The bill being debated on the Senate floor this week was recently modified to take into account the concerns of mostly rural states. For instance, it would: -Cut in half the number of mail processing centers the Postal Services currently wants to close — from 252 to 125 — allowing more U.S. areas to maintain overnight first-class mail delivery for at least three more years. Currently there are roughly 500 mail processing centers. -Slow if not stop many post office closings by forcing the agency to consider the special needs of rural

communities and undergo additional layers of regulatory approval. For instance, the Postal Service might have to downsize rather than close facilities, or factor in whether rural residents might have poor Internet service or have to travel longer road distances should a post office close. -Require the Postal Service to wait at least two years before it could reduce mail delivery to five days a week, a cut that is being urged by the Obama administration and that could save between $2 billion and $3 billion a year. According to the Associated Press, the Senate measure “does not rule out some cutbacks in services or post offices, but it would require USPS to exhaust all other options beforehand and ensure that its decisions are based on sound planning,” said Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., a bill cosponsor. “We believe this approach offers the best hope for stabilizing the Postal Service and putting it on solid footing long-term, without dramatic and perhaps selfdefeating cutbacks in service,” he said. The Senate planned to debate the measure for the next several days. The House has yet to begin consideration of a different version of a postal bill, which seeks in part to create a national commission that would make major decisions on postal cuts.

learned that a passerby saw a burning object on the sidewalk. Upon closer investigation, they realized the object was a human body and called 9-1-1. Altadena Sheriff’s Station deputies and Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel responded to the location and confirmed the burned victim was a black male adult.

art that you will be proud to wear or display in your home. Live music will be featured throughout the weekend in the band shell and on the south lawn and a food court will offer a variety of food and drinks provided by local non-profit groups as well as food vendors. For the children, the Creative Arts Group has planned a fun and imaginative craft activity on Saturday and Sunday from 10am-4pm. A new feature of this year’s fair will be a silent auction. So far, forty of the artists who are displaying and selling their creations at this year’s fair have donated

lovely, one-of-a-kind pieces for the auction which means that you’ll have a chance to bid on some really beautiful artwork. So come early and stay all day. Browse through the wonderful displays of artwork, sit on the lawn and listen to music, have a little lunch, check on your silent auction bids, and then go back and purchase those lovely pieces of art that have been calling your name ever since you spotted them. Proceeds from the Art Fair benefit the Sierra Madre Library. For more information, visit our website at sierramadrelibraryfriends.org or call 626 355-7186.

Body Discovered The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The man, who has not been identified, was discovered in the 2600 block of North Windsor Avenue at about 6 a.m. Sunday morning. Reports indicate neighbors believe the man was murdered and his death was an “execution.” Anyone with information about this incident is en-

couraged 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) 222TIPS (8477), or texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or by using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org.
