On Thursday evenings at around 7:30 PM something remakable happens at the American Legion Post 280 in Pasadena. A group of 16-18 men, and occasionally a couple of women, sit in and play some of the best big band jazz you will hear ….all for no charge. We’re not kidding, these guys are tops and they are pros. Hailing from some of the top names in big bands

16 Year-Old Student Arrested for Fake Gun On Tuesday, May 01, 2012, Pasadena Police Officers responded to John Muir High School regarding a report of a student with a gun. A teacher’s aid notified school security that she saw a male student with a gun in his waistband. The police were immediately called. School officials notified staff to shelter in place, keeping students in their classrooms until the investigation was concluded. Safe School Officers responded and contained the area. The student was contacted in a classroom and detained by officers without incident. The student did not have the gun of his

person, but lead officers to his backpack, which was seized. Officers found the gun inside of the backpack and upon close examination the weapon was determined to be a replica handgun, possible an airsoft pistol. The replica resembled a black semiautomatic handgun. The student, MH 16, Pasadena resident, was arrested for possession of a replica firearm on a school campus. He was transported to the Pasadena Police Department and booked. He was later released to his parents. The case will be presented to the juvenile District Attorney’s Office.

from a bygone era, many of the musicians including sax player Chris Galuman were fortunate enough to have played with some of the "heavyweights" of the big band era toward the end of their careers in the 1970's. They were Stan Kenton, Harry James and Alvino Rey to name a few. If you’re not familiar with those names just google ‘em…you’ll be glad you did. So will your ears. This band shows up

every Thursday and starts at 7:30 on Vinedo, basically to rehearse and play what they like and love and like most musicians, appreciate an audience no matter how small. That was the strangest thing to me, when I discovcered that these guys are playing and hardly anyone knows about it. The band consists of drums, saxophones, trumpets, trombones, stand up bass, guitar, all under the very cool calm and collect di-

rection of Ray Atwan. The control and timing of the band members is remarkable especially when you consider some of the complex arrangements these guys play. Last week, an amazing piece written by Freddie Hubbard was brought to life at Post 280 with the Ray Atwan band. Man, that was great, Now, as I see it, where on earth can see and hear some top musicians playing Please see page 23

Deputy David W. March Honored on the 10th Anniversary of Death

Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputy Honor Guard stands in silence on the anniversary of Depty David March’s death. March was shot and killed a decade ago on April 29. A plaque at Temple Station reads “ Our Creed: My Goals are simple. I will always be painfully honest, work as hard as I can, learn as much as I can and hopefully make a difference in people’s lives.” It was written by Deputy March to a sergeant for his evaluation, nine days before he was murdered. -Photo by Terry Miller

Dorothy's Place The Edge of a Bad Mood

By Dorothy Denne The day wasn't starting well. It was one of those days when nothing is wrong but nothing is right either. I was on the edge of a bad mood. I flipped the page of the calendar to start a new month. Maybe that was the source of my precarious mood--the passing of another month. I looked at the page and saw a day set aside as Lumpy Rug Day. The blurb said it was "to encourage the custom of teasing bigots and trigots for shoving unwelcome facts under the rug." Now

I've known a few bigots in my day but I never heard of a trigot. Neither have Webster, American College, Winston or the Unabridged International. I wasted a lot of time trying to find that word 'trigot'. Well, maybe it wasn't a complete waste. I learned I could become a 'trigly' dressed woman. I had never heard the word 'trigly' either. It means pleasingly neat, trim and stylish. Dictionaries are fascinating but they are not trigoted. The calendar also marked a Visit Your Relative Day and a Kiss Your Mate Day. I thought what a shame, only one day for each. Then there was a Look Alike Day--"a day for recognizing those people who look like someone famous." One day should be enough for that. I couldn't help my-

self. I cheated. I began to flip through the calendar to see what I have to look forward to. There is a Friendship Day, a Dream Day, a Kiss and Make Up Day. They all come in the same month. Evaluate Your Life Day and Underdog Day kind of go together nicely. National Grouch Day and Have a Bad Day are separated by Sandwich Day and Sweetest Day, which is a pleasant break. Finally I saw Make Up Your Mind Day on December 31. Sounded like a good idea to me. I decided not to remain on the edge of a bad mood. I kissed my mate, got dressed up in a trigly manner, called a friend and we went out for lunch. I made up my mind to be in a good mood. It worked until that cockroach crawled across our table.

National TakeBack Initiative Nets 50lbs of Old Sierra Madre Drugs On Saturday April, 28, 2012, Sierra Madre Police Department participated in the National TakeBack Initiative. In cooperation with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Sierra Madre Police Department collectedover 50 lbs. of old, unused, and excess medication that was turned in to Police Officers at City Hall today. Police Chief Larry Giannone commended the community for an outstanding job of properly disposing of the old and unused medications that could have potentially posed a safety risk if the

medications were discarded improperly. The drop off started at 10:00 AM and ended at 2:00 PM. In just four hours the public was able to walk up and hand the medications to officers, with no questions asked, resulting in over 50 lbs. of a variety of medications slated for destruction. The Sierra Madre Police Department looks forward to participating in the event next year and our goal will be to double the amount of old medications taken in now that community members know how easy it was to dispose of the items properly.

Mother’s Day Tour a Tradition for MOHPG and Others The Monrovia Historic Preservation Group’s annual Mother’s Day Tour of Homes has become a tradition not just for the group, but for many individuals as well. Many local families make it a tradition to take “Mom” on the tour. The event is family friendly and a pleasant afternoon outing for all ages. Of course, the tour will be held on Mother’s Day, May 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free trolleys will be on hand to move “tourists.” Just park once and take the trolley to the other sites. Tickets for the tour itself are now available on line at mohpg.org or in person at the Monrovia Chamber of Commerce, Monrovia Bakery, and Paint N Play (all on Myrtle Avenue. Credit cards can be accepted on line only. Tickets can also be purchased from the MOHPG booth at Family Festival on Friday evenings. Save money by buying tickets in advance. The cost is $17 for Adults, $14 for Seniors (65+), $9 for Teens (13-19) with Children 12 and under free. Tickets will be available the day of the tour at the Monrovia Historical Museum only, 742 East Lemon between Mountain and Shamrock starting at 9:30 a.m. On the day of the tour, ticket prices go up $3 per ticket. This year the tour will include an 1888 Victorian on Hillcrest which features a wrap around porch. The house recently underwent a full interior restoration. There will also be an English stucco cottage which previously appeared on the tour in 1995. Extensive interior changes have been made since that time and so it appears again.

by susan motander Another veteran home on the tour is a 1908 classic Craftsman with a large front porch and granite foundation. It is even one of Monrovia’s Historic Homes (#13 for those who count). The First Baptist Church is celebrating the centennial of its building (the church itself was founded in 1881 in Duarte, but moved to this building in Monrovia in 1912). “Chateau des Reves” is making its first tour appearance. This distinctive home at the pointed intersection of Norumbega, Greystone and Shamrock has hand painted murals, rough, hand hewn beams and carved figures. A peak into this home alone is worth the tour experience. In a slight twist, a new home is included in the tour this year. It is a brand new home built in a folk Victorian style. The idea was to give tour goers an idea of how to fit a new home into a neighborhood of largely vintage homes. Shall we call the style Rural Victorian Revival? Of course, for many the tour will either begin or end at the Monrovia Historical Museum (Spanish Colonial Revival) which started life as the Monrovia Municipal Plunge (City Pool) in 1925. The museum is host to many new exhibits. If you have not been in a few years, it s time to revisit the museum. This year’s tour with its wide range of styles and chances to glimpse into homes never before open to the public, the experience is not one to miss. Remember to buy your tickets early to save. Photo Captions: All photos by Jim Wigton - Do

not use the Photo Titles just the captions. Leave out the name of the house. Stelling House:This 1888 Victorian home on Hillcrest Blvd, with its dramatic wrap around porch, will make its first tour appearance, to the delight of passers-by who for years have hoped to one day see the inside. A recently completed, year-long interior remodel now shows the house at its best. Shamrock House: In 1995 this English Stucco home appeared on the home tour. Built in 1921, it has undergone significant interior changes since its only tour appearance. Dumond House: Owner and builder Frederick DuMond’s “Chateau des Reves” will make its first appearance on the home tour. Believed to have been built around 1920, it exhibits the artistic nature of its first owner, with carved figures, hand painted murals, and rough, hand hewn beams gracing the interior of the home. Best House: Bearing historic landmark #13, this 1908 Craftsman has been completely restored by the current owners. Granite porch columns flank a large porch and a granite foundation and fireplace combine to create a period look from the street. The house has been on tour once before, in 2000. The First Baptist Church originated in Duarte in 1881 and later moved to Monrovia. This year the church celebrates its centennial in this building. Of particular interest are the numerous stained glass windows. The church has been on tour once before in 1988.

Also clever remarks from outgoing Chamber President Bob Hoffman. The VIP guest list included all the brass from Santa Anita in honor of Siberell, City Council members, commissions and 50 of Alice’s friends.

Cinco De Mayo in Monrovia Continued from page 1

Monrovia event last Sunday and join over 100 US cities will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Puebla this Saturday. The all-day festival kicked off with ballet Folklorico and traditional Oaxacan calenda dance performances. Followed by musical renderings by La Santa Cecilia, whose unique sound blends Pan-American rhythms like cumbia, bossa nova, rumba, and tango with modern rock and jazz. The fiesta continuedon the children’s stage where circus clowns, a bubble and exotic animal show were all part of the fun. Delgado Brothers performed their Latin infused blues . The cultural and arts festival will also include performances from Juan Carlos Quintero, Los Dominantes and Potro Norteno. The celebration will culminate with a very special performance from ranchera Mexican

crooner Hector Dominguez and Los Caporales de Santos Beccerra belting out heartfelt ballads and classics. Miriam Gil who with her dance partener Edith Gongales were two of the featured dancers last Sunday. Gil told Beacon Media that she loves Ballet Folklorico, and explained the rich culture that surrounds this particular form of dance. “ Besides the fact that dancing is in my blood, Mexican folkloric dances each have a rich history behind the dances and the costumes worn depending on the region it originates from. Like for example, the one I made, from the state of Jalisco which is the well-known El Son De la Negra, the sound of the dark skinned woman, for the dance El Son de La Negra the women wear colorful, doublecircle skirts embellished with ribbons. The dancing from this region consists of flourishing arm movements, and

loud, intricate stomping. It’s wonderful to be able to not only see these dances being performed, but to also know the meanings behind each one. Each costume, each gesture, each step tells a story, and by understanding this, the dances are much more memorable. This is one of my all-time favorites, as its Mexico’s most emblematic popular song!” said Miriam Gil . “The Monrovia Cinco De Mayo Cultural Art and Music Festival in 2011 began as a way to showcase local talent, build community, and celebrate the many historic contributions Mexican Americans and all Hispanics have made to this great country. I am thrilled at the amazing response the event garnered this year.,” said Rutilio Castrellon, President of the Monrovia Cinco de Mayo Association.

Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, Saito no Oniwakamaru, Japan, 1872, Woodblock print on paper, Loaned by the Ed Freis Collection. -Courtesy Photo

This exhibition of over 100 prints, preparatory drawings, illustrated books and an original carved block marks the first time Pacific Asia Museum has presented a major exhibition of Yoshitoshi’s work. Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-1892) is regarded as one of the most important Japanese printmakers of the 19th century. Trained originally as a student of Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861), Yoshitoshi broke new ground in composition, subject matter and technique in woodblock printing. The wide range of work in Masterpieces of Tsukioka Yoshitoshi demonstrates the range of his creativity and draws attention to the critical relationships the artist shared with his publishers throughout his career as well as the effect of market forces

on his work. The Meiji period (18681912) was a period of dynamic intercultural exchange and economic expansion in Japan, which is clearly reflected in Yoshitoshi’s work. Depictions of steam locomotives and European dress show a new cultural landscape, and his compositions bristle with hyper energy, distinctive shading and perspective. Other subjects include demons, ghosts, warriors, supernatural animals, popular Kabuki actors and well-known beauties, which have contributed to his ongoing popularity.

Doo Dah 2012 – Still Crazy After All these Years 35th Year Brings East Pasadena top its Collective Feet By Terry Miller

A rather clever alternative theme was selected as an homage to the 2013 Rose Parade. -Photo by Terry Miller

A truly unusual Doo Dah it was. Held in East Pasadena last Saturday , the fine folks at Lightbringer put on the 35th Occasional Doo Dah Parade without a hitch or single bump. The fun began at approximately 11 am when former doo dah queens boarded a vintage bus and literally rolled down Colorado waving to the thousands who lined the street to see their majesties. The best part of the parade is always parody and this year was no exception. The theme was a tasteful twist on the Rose Parde’s choice “ Oh, thje places you’ll go” and their Grand Marshal the world famous Jane Goodall. Well, the fine folks at LBP decided a slight tvariation on that was in order : Oh, the Places We’ve been” was chosen and the world famous former PIO for Pasadena

Ann Erdman was this year’s Grand Marshal. The parade, if you can call it that, is really a rolling art festival… somewhat akin to a combination of Halloween, Mardis Gras and Burning Man which includes a cast of colorful characters from many walks of life letting their hair down, and embracing the fun of life. One unique group called “A Movable Feast,” was named after Ernest Hemingway’s memoir about living in 1920s Paris. Daper dressed gents and debutantes enjoyed brunch atop an elobately decorated table complete with a Chandelier. They won the parade’s only award, the Czar’s ( Tom Coston) Trophy, for their creationThe table was beautifully dressed like one would see at Buckingham Palace.

Documentary Planned A Day in the Life of PUSD

GO PUBLIC: A Day in the Life of PUSD (Pasadena Unified School District)” is a documentary project that captures the complexity and promise of public education. Jim and Dawn O’Keefe of Blue Field Productions aim to give voice to individuals working and learning within the PUSD. On May 2012, 40 illustrious directors, including awardwinning director Diane Namm, and 10 student film crews will follow 50 individuals over 24 hours on 28 campuses. Ninety percent of U.S. children attend public school. GO PUBLIC seeks to illustrate the growing legislative and budgetary challenges the public-edu-

cational system continues to face. It will depict, over a 24-hour time frame, the countless and complex ways in which students, teachers, parents, administrators and other school personnel dedicate their days to effectively serve the educational needs of the community. The story is set in an ethnically- and economically-diverse urban school district, which is unique to Pasadena and typical to districts nationwide. Seventy percent of PUSD families are low income. Still, PUSD manages to provide an academically rigorous and socially meaningful education program for all its students.

GO PUBLIC: A Day in the Life of PUSD will be a two-hour video documentary. Each profile and individual story will be available through an interactive website. Both Jim O’Keefe, who teaches at USC School of Cinematic Arts, and Dawn O’Keefe, have lived the public-school journey with their own children and they aim to shed light on the power, promise and universal nature of a public school education.

AbilityFirst Makes Dreams Come True

POLICE BLOTTERS ficers responded to a residence in the 500 block of North Alta Vista regarding a large party. When officers arrived, they assessed the number of people at the party to be several hundred. The only resident present was a 16-year-old male subject and there was no adult supervision. Alcohol and marijuana consumption had been taking place. Additional officers responded, including the Special Enforcement Team, the Foothill Air Support helicopter, and several officers from Arcadia Police Department. It took some time to clear the property of all the party goers. Several minors were cited for possession of alcohol. An adult sister of the 16-year-old resident responded and both were cited. On April 28, the adult sister called police to report that a camera and a laptop computer were stolen from the house during the party. A young man was seen carrying a laptop from the party. Investigation continuing. Possession of Hypodermic Needles / Possession of Anabolic Steroids / Search Warrant - Suspect Arrested April 28 at 1:59 a.m., an officer saw a vehicle driving out of a parking lot in the 400 block of Foothill with one of its doors open. The officer notified the driver, but the driver ignored him and drove away at a high rate of speed. The officer followed the vehicle and made a traffic stop in the 100 block of Acacia. Although the driver was found not to be under the influence, a full box of syringes and a package of anabolic steroids were found in the vehicle. The subject

was arrested and taken into custody and a search warrant was written for a residence in Arcadia. At 7:13 p.m., officers, assisted by the Special Enforcement Team, went to a residence in the 1200 block of East Magnis in Arcadia to serve a search warrant. The search warrant resulted in finding quantities of mushrooms and marijuana. Additional charges of possession of controlled substance and possession of marijuana for sales were added to the suspect’s offenses. Medical Assist April 29 at 9:14 p.m., an officer was dispatched to the 300 block of West Colorado regarding a woman who was not breathing. When the officer arrived, he checked the woman’s vital signs and determined she was not breathing and did not have a pulse. The officer directed the woman’s fiancé to begin rescue breathing while he administered chest compressions on the woman. CPR was continued on the woman for several minutes until paramedics arrived and took her to a local hospital, where she received advanced medical treatment and was successfully brought back to life. Stop Graffiti Bounty Program One of the methods the Monrovia Police Department is using to combat graffiti in the community of Monrovia is the Stop Graffiti Bounty Program. If a citizen reports an incident of graffiti in the City of Monrovia that leads to the arrest of the suspect, the citizen will receive a $100 bill. Help keep Monrovia looking great!

guidance, and unflinching encouragement for them to pursue their dreams of joining the business world. The job placement staff also carefully evaluates both the prospective employees and the job athand to ensure that each person’s abilities and skills are matched to specific employer needs. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2009 19.5 million people, or 9.9 percent of people age 16 to 64, had a disability. Of this 13.3 million or 4.3 percent ages 16- to 64-yearolds have a difficult time finding a job or remaining

employed because of a disability. “My whole life, I have always wanted to be a security officer. I had a tough time growing up, and I wanted to help other people to not go through what I went through,” said Jones. In 2009, AbilityFirst met with Louis and helped him fill out applications, write his resume, and prepared him for interviews. Then they arranged an interview at AEG which led to him landing a job at the Staples Center as a Security Officer. “Now I work Lakers, Clippers, and Kings Games as well as concerts. My job duties are working the front security gates, using the metal detectors, patrolling the grounds, and reporting any disturbance,” said Jones with a huge smile on his face. His job coach at AbilityFirst helps and trains him on his duties and periodically monitors his performance to ensure that AEG is completely satisfied with his work. “Because of AbilityFirst, I have reached my dream job of being a security officer.” Lori Gangemi, President and CEO of AbilityFirst says her staff works tirelessly to provide the support an individual with a developmental disability needs to find a job commensurate with his/her skills and abilities, and succeed as an employee working in the business world. “To ensure a smooth

transition, we provide preemployment training to help equip adults with important job and workplace skills. Our job placement staff carefully evaluates both the prospective employee and the job at-hand to ensure that each person’s abilities and skills are matched to specific employer needs. Then job coaches, who work right alongside each new employee, assist in supervision and provide on-thejob training.” Last year, Jones participated in the Derby Day 5K, AbilityFirst’s main fundraising event, for the first time. “I was able to hold the AbilityFirst banner and lead the entire group as we started the race. It was great to see all the people walking in support of AbilityFirst because I know how much they have done for me,” said Jones. “I thank God everyday for all my blessings. Thank you AbilityFirst.” For more than 85 years AbilityFirst has been, providing programs and services to help children and adults with disabilities reach their full potential. Through 24 locations across Southern California, AbilityFirst offers a broad range of employment, recreational and socialization programs and operates 12 accessible residential housing complexes.

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.
