Sierra Madre Council Continues Fee Schedule

Community News, Arts & Opinions Since 1996

Lawyer Begs the Question “Is this the Beginning of a Hobo Jungle?”

by jim e. winburn

The Sierra Madre City Council’s three newly-elected members experienced their first full meeting Tuesday in what was truly a test of civic endurance. The council members bravely tackled an agenda packed with plenty of business, but failed to take action on the 2012-2013 budget and fees schedule at the end of the five-hour council meeting. Items that council members did take action on and approved at the meeting included a fee waiver for a memorial sitting corner in Bailey Canyon Wilderness Park, the A Los Angeles man goes through his worldly belongings at a bus stop in Los Feliz with a rather ironic ad for an HBO series called How to Make it in America. sale of Community Devel- -Photo by Terry Miller opment Block Grant Funds to the City of La Mirada in down property values and psychological wounds, these termittently at Taylor’s MarBy Terry Miller exchange for General Fund fears Sierra Madre will be- men and women are forced ket in Sierra Madre.

Spotlight on Nurses and Other Healthcare Professionals National Hospital Week dates back to 1921. Launched to promote trust and goodwill among community members, it began as a celebration of Florence Nightingale’s birthday, May 12. Known as the founder of modern nursing, Miss Nightingale also revolutionized the way hospitals were run. Methodist Hospital is more than just a place where people go to heal; it is a central part of the community, fostering good health and representing hope. On Monday Hospital officials and staff held a Community Day at the newly remodeled hospital Nurse Wendy checks BMI (Body Mass Index) during Community Day at Metnodist Hospital. -Photo by Terry Miller

Lawyer in McDade Case Amends Federal Lawsuit Against Pasadena The initial lawsuit claims the Pasadena Police Department and its officers violated McDade's civil rights and holds the city, Griffin and Newlen responsible for the teenager's death. The amended lawsuit now details the accounts of unnamed witnesses, who said neither Newlen nor Griffin identified themselves as police officers prior to opening fire on McDade. "Witness accounts said there were no commands such as: `halt,' `stop,' `police' or `let me see your hands,"' according to the suit filed Monday. The amended lawsuit now includes Pasadena police Lt. Phlunte Riddle as a defendant along with the city of Pasadena, police Chief Phillip Sanchez, officers Mathew Griffin and Jeffrey Newlen and police Detective Keith Please see page 14

Dorothy's Place I Wish I Were

By Dorothy Denne I wish I were a poet. I would write of Time and how it ticks away. I remember a poem or song from my childhood days. I don't know who wrote it and can't remember who sang it. It went something like this: M is for the million things she gave me....O means only that she's growing old.... etc. until MOTHER was spelled and defined. Funny the things that stick in our memories. Something I haven't

thought of for a long, long time. I was a young child during WWII. My brother was in the paratroopers. On one of his jumps, they were under heavy fire and he was wounded. When he landed, there was no time to disentangle from his chute so he just gathered it up and crawled to safety. Later he sent that chute to my mother and she used it to make me a dress for church and special occasions. Like the E for eyes with love light glowing in the song, her's glowed with pride for both her son and her daughter. My mother has been gone for many years but the memories of her mean the world to me. Much of my time on this earth is

gone also, but oh so many memories from that spent time, too, linger on. Though I dare not forget the past, I do not live there. The present is too exciting. There is so much still to learn, so much yet to do. The future is to be planned for but cannot be counted upon. This moment must be used wisely for it is fleeting and shall never return except in memory. It was only seconds ago that this moment was the future. In seconds more it will have become the past. Oh how quickly the present becomes the past. Time ticks - Interminably - Moment by moment into - Eternity. I wish I were a poet.

Homelessness in Sierra Madre

Continued from page 1

Union Station in Pasadena is one agency which helps the homeless in our community. -Photo by Terry Miller

newsworthy subject. And I do believe it is lowering the property values here. Will Sierra Madre become a blighted area like downtown Los Angeles? Is this the beginning of a hobo jungle here?” Signed, Ed Ramirez. But in the above mentioned case to which the Sierra Madre lawyer was referring, the man is not homeless and is known locally as the pool man to Sierra Madre police. He has accomodation in Sierra Madre and is most certainly not what Ramirez refers to as a ‘hobo’. Chief Larry Giannone of Sierra Madre PD spoke with Sierra Madre Weekly on Wednesday morning and said the dept. has been in contact with the individual and he is cooperative and not causing problems as is inferred in Mr. Ramirez’ letter. Sierra Madre is a unique community with many caring and compassionate individuals who help others less fortunate. This is a good example of how man helps his fellow man. From the local police dept. which endeavors to

The Doozies

help rather than punish; to the property owners who give shelter. Mr. Ramirez’ concerns, however, are not uncommon and many wish the ‘problem’ would just go away. We decided to look into what can be done, what is being done and how it is helping the homeless in our area. It is not exactly clear when ‘hobos’ first appeared on the American scene when you star reaseaching the subject. However, at the end of the Civil War , many soldiers looking to return home took to jumping freight trains. Others looking for work on the American frontier followed railroads westward aboard freight trains in the late 19th Century. In 1906, Professor Layal Shafee, after an exhaustive study, put the number of socalled “tramps” in America at 500,000 (about 0.6% of the U.S. population). The article citing this figure, “What Tramps Cost Nation”, was published by The New York Telegraph in 1911 and estimated the number had

surged to 700,000. The population of ‘hobos’ increased greatly during the Great Depression era of the 1930s. With no work and no prospects at home, many had no choice but to travel via freight trains and try their luck elsewhere. “The recession will force 1.5 million more people into homelessness over the next two years,” this according to The National Alliance to End Homelessness in a 2008 report. The U.S. Conference of Mayors cited a major increase in the number of homeless in 19 out of the 25 cities surveyed. On average, cities reported a 12 percent increase of homelessness since 2007. Although homelessness is a difficult number to measure definitively, it appears that more people—especially families and single women— are sleeping in shelters, living in their cars, and taking up residence wherever possible. One approximation of the annual number of homeless in America is from a study by the National Law

Center on Homelessness and Poverty, which estimates between 2.3 and 3.5 million people experience homelessness. According to a 2008 U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development report an estimated 671,888 people experienced homelessness in one night in January 2007. Some 58 percent of them were living in shelters and transitional housing and, 42 percent were unsheltered. Locally, Pasadena experienced a 21% increase in homlessness between 20052008, according to a 2011 City of Pasadena study. The figure today ( 2011 study figures) show at least 1,216 adults and children are homeless in Pasadena alone. A 7% increase over last year. The Census Bureau noted, through the 2009 American Community Survey, that 14 percent of Pasadena residents were in poverty. Sixteen percent (16%) of related children under 18 were below the poverty level compared with 11 percent of people 65 years old and over. Nine percent (9%) of all families and 23 percent of families with a female householder and no husband present had incomes below the poverty level. Many of these persons can become homeless because of social structural issues such as increases in rent, loss of job, and rising health care costs. In addition, personal experiences such as domestic violence, physical disabilities, mental illness, and substance abuse can cause members of a low income household or an entire household to become homeless as well. Often, one or more of these experiences factor into a household’s homeless experience. Getting back to Sierra Madre: The complaints by Mr. Ramirez surprised not only us, but the Sierra Madre

Police Dept. who have been attemping to help this individual - not punish or banish him from society. Police Chief Larry Giannone said his officers are aware of the individual but unless any formal complaint came from Taylor’s Market, there is not a lot the PD can do to eliminate the ‘blight’ as Ramirez calls it. The chief went on to educate Ramirez that the ( SMPD ) is taking this on as a team project so “we can get a long term solution and not just a temporary reprieve. Typically with the Penal Code you cited, the property owner would have to place the individual under citizen’s arrest.” As Chief Giannone eloquently points out, “ These days they get cited and released. This usually does not serve the long term problem.” Chief Giannone went on to inform Mr. Ramirez that the city was looking for a more “permanent place for him to be.” The Sierra Madre Police dept. works with many area agencies for this kind of situation and rather than sweep it away from sight, they attempt to find long-term solutions for the individuals. One such unit is called HOPE Team. HOPE Team stands for Homeless Outreach Psychological Evaluation. We spoke with Commander Russ on Monday abot the program. Russ is one of the officers very involved with HOPE in Pasadena and well-versed in dealing with homeless men and women and their special needs. Russ agrees that citations do little to help the individual or the community. What the HOPE team, does is evaluate individuals with a qualified clinician who can better determine how a particular individual might be assisted. Commander Russ concurs with Chief Giannone that the problem is intricate and needs to be approached with compassion, understanding backed with knowledge of available city/private resources. Many individuals are “service resistant” according to Commander Chris Russ but there are success stories. Russ continues that “Street Level Resources” are crucial in helping individuals get the help they may need. Pasadena has one of the best climates in the country year round and as the Gold Line continues to expand, more people will make their way into Pasadena. Commander Chris Russ

also points out that many homeless individuals use the Gold Line regualrly as there appears to be little to no check on ticket status. This I know, personally, as I have never once been asked for my ticket when traveling on the Gold Line or exiting at my destination. It appears to be an honor system. The Pasadena Police Department created the HOPE Team January 8, 2002. The police department entered into a partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health hoping to better handle homeless issues and to provide cooperative, compassionate, mental health/law enforcement teams to assist those in need of accessing mental health and social services. This police officer-civilian clinician team-approach pioneered the “HOPE” model of mental health crisis response. What makes the HOPE Team different from similar units in other departments is that HOPE Team members are first responders to emergency mental health crisis calls, and are proactive by continuously seeking out contact with people who are in need of services prior to potentially volatile situations occurring. The team’s target population are street-level and sheltered homeless, as well as mental health consumers within the city limits. Another major aspect of the HOPE approach is working on relationship building and “planting the seed” of trust for the next contact. This is critical in convincing people to accept services prior to them being in a crisis and critical in being able to deescalate a situation when they are in crisis. HOPE Team Officers are specially trained in crisis communications, Violence Threat Risk Assessment (VTRA), and are graduates of Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Training Academies throughout the state. HOPE Teams also specialize in multi-agency, long-term psychiatric problem solving. Lt. Jari Faulkner is in charge of Pasadena’s HOPE programs and tells Beacon Media that teams are available every day of the week to respond to situations within the city bounderies where there is a report of a homless person in need of help/evaluation. Lt. Faulkner noted that there has been an increase in homeless women in recent years. Unlike cities like Santa Please see page 23

Bike to Work Week May 17

You can win this cool cruiser. -Courtesy Photo

Lucky Baldwin’s is one of a handful of area businesses to celebrate the bicycle in honor of Bike to Work Day next Thursday May 17. However Lucky Baldwin’s has a special reason to celebrate this year; the life of the late owner of the popular pubs Dave Farnworth. ALS is very near and dear to Lucky Baldwin’s owner and family of loyal and attentive employees. The popular Pasadena pub recently lost co-owner Dave Farnworth to the dreadful disease, ALS. Farnworth passed away late last year of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) which is more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease which affects upper and lower motor neurons and motor neurons. Farnworth was very well-known in the industry especially for his love of Belgian beers and as luck would have it, New Belgium Beers in one of the sponsors of Bike to Work day on May 17. They also have a really cool program to trade in your car for a bike called Tour de Fat! “WHAT IS THE CAR/ BIKE TRADE? It’s when one fortunate soul hands over their car, title and keys to the Tour de Fat altar in exchange for a bike. Not just any bike, a New Belgium, fully-loaded, handcrafted, Fort Collins-built commuter bike. There’s 13 Tour de Fat stops - surely one near you - and that’s 13 car/bike trade opportunities. It’s about weaning yourself off the petroleum teat. It’s about becoming a better, sexier person. It’s about rediscovering the cultural thrill of public transportation. One year’s time is the minimum commitment – com-

muting is your sentence. WHO CAN DO IT? You! (Maybe). By agreeing to trade your polluting car for a new bike and committing to sparkle motion, human-powered transport, on stage at Tour de Fat, you become an inspiration to the congregation and beyond. Your vehicular cleansing is filmed, as are your car-free trials and triumphs over the following year, causing thousands to idolize your efforts and begin commuting by bike (we hope). Submit a video of two minutes or less with your story and desire to be car-free. Go to our Facebook page, click on Events, and on your city of choice, upload video, photo or written word. No Facebook profile? Email trademycarforabike@ newbelgium.com” The Pasadena Department of Transportation’s Prideshare Program, in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), is encouraging the public to leave their cars at home and ride bicycles to work on May 17. “We encourage people to take this opportunity to bike to work, start cycling for fun and fitness and consider regularly using the human power of the pedal instead of the accelerator,” Pasadena Transportation Department Director Fred Dock said. The Prideshare Program will celebrate Bike to Work Day from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m., Thursday, May 17, at City Hall, 100 N. Garfield Ave. with a special “Pit Stop” for bicyclists. The Bike to Work Day Pit Stop at City Hall will be one of the seven

pit stops available in the area to help refuel bike commuters. Local merchants and bicycle shops also will be participating in the event. The event is open to the public and includes refreshments and free giveaways and prizes. Other Pit Stop locations include the Metro Gold Line Allen stop; Western Asset Plaza; One West Bank; MPG Office Trust Inc.; Caltech and Worthe Real Estate Group. Operating times and participation levels at each site may vary. Go online to Metro’s website at http://www.metro.net/ bikes/bike-week/ for more information. Bike to Work Day also helps demonstrate that biking is a viable transportation alternative almost any time of year in Southern California, particularly for commuters who live close to their work, Dock said. Under the ownership of British subjects David Farnworth and Peggy Simonian, Lucky Baldwin’s in old Pasadena poured their very first pint July 1, 1996. It wasn’t long before word got around that there was a good “English Pub” in Pasadena complete with character and a feel of the UK. Following Dave Farnworth’s vision, Co owner Peggy Simonian and the management team decided to celebrate Bike Week and Bike month in Los Angles with a fundraiser for ALS in memory of Dave Farnworth. Raffle tickets are only $5 for a chance to win this great bike. Tickets are available at all three locations: Old Town, Sierra Madre and Trappiste at 1770 East Colorado Bike to Work Day is Thursday May 17 Check out www.newbelgium.com for more details Drawing-raffle tickets will be held May 20th at 7:00 pm Proceeds go to ALS Lucky Baldwins Trappiste is located at 1770 E Colorado Blvd in Pasadena.

Currently only 46% of used motor oil is being recycled, which means 20 million gallons may be illegally entering California’s waterways via stormwater systems, posing a great risk to the environment.

Monrovia Day 2012 Celebrations Everywhere you look in Old Town there is evidence of birthday party planning. The familiar birthday cake pole banners are going up on Myrtle Avenue highlighting some of the folks who put the fun in the upcoming events; flyers are getting stuffed into merchandise bags, adding to the sense of anticipation; local volunteers are meeting and the new Samson the Bear images have been set in place. If you’re counting the days, Monrovia’s 126th Birthday Celebration, scheduled for Saturday, May 19th, will begin in 8 days plus or minus a few hours. Those few hours (of sleep!) could make a big difference to the hearty souls who plan to participate in the 7 a.m. Fountain to the Falls Race. Thank you Quota Club of Monrovia who will offer peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to the returning runners!

The theme of this year’s parade is “Monrovia – One neighborhood for Everyone”, and the Hometown Grand Marshall is Old Town business owner and Kiwanian extraordinaire, Julie Gentile. The Blue Star Families will proudly share the title of “Celebrity Grand Marshall”. The parade will begin at 10 a.m. and will travel north on Myrtle Avenue. Old Town streets will be fully re-opened by 11:30 a.m. Activities in Library Park will begin at approximately11 a.m. and continue through the day, ending with a free concert on the Myrtle Avenue sideof the park from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. featuring “The Totally Hip Replacements”. The Monrovia Day Committee, partnering with Community Services, has been hard at work to plan the park events which will include a Mini Health Fair, the Kiwanis Cupcake Contest,the MAP Min-Con-

ference, a Friends of the Library Book Sale, the Monrovia USD Spelling Bee and many other fun activities and booths. Free events and entertainment along the Avenue in Old Town begin at 12 noon and willinclude strolling magicians, a barbershop quartet, fiddlers, banjo players, a stilt-walker, face painting and free kid’s craft tables. There will also be several “photo standees” available for some fun picture-taking. At 5:30 the Old Town Merchants are pleased to sponsor a Line Dancing Event in Library Park.

Portantino’s Bill to Ban Open Carry of Long Guns Wins Approval in Assembly The state Assembly today approved Assemblymember Anthony Portantino’s public safety measure that would make it a crime to openly display unloaded rifles and shotguns on main street California. AB 1527 makes it a misdemeanor for carrying an unloaded long gun in public, vehicle or street in incorporated communities in California and in unincorporated communities that meet certain criteria. The bill contains specific exemptions for law enforcement personnel as well as licensed hunters. It is a follow-up to Portantino’s bill last year banning the open carry of handguns. “Open carry creates a potentially dangerous situation

when police officers respond to calls from the public when confronted with someone carrying a rifle or shotgun,” stated Assemblymember Portantino. “It’s a bad situation for everyone – the police, the gun owner and innocent bystanders who could be injured by this risky behavior. In addition, it wastes time, money and attention when police have to roll-out and respond to these unnecessary calls.” If AB 1527 becomes law, violations are punishable by six months in county jail and a fine up to $1,000. The measure is backed by the California Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence, PORACPeace Officers Research Association of California and the California Police Chiefs

Association which refers to AB 1527 as “one of our most important bills in this session”. “This bill just makes sense. Sooner or later, somebody’s going to get hurt. If you see somebody walking around a mall or main street with a shotgun, it’s pretty intimidating. It’s unnecessary and it is just going to lead to trouble. I had hoped that the earlier measure banning open carry of handguns would solve this problem but when long gun advocates attended a police fundraiser it became clear that there was more work to do. When law enforcement asks the legislature for help because of a public safety risk, I’m going to try to do my best to help them,” commented Portantino.

Airstream Grand Opening Puts San Gabriel Back on the Map by jim e. winburn

Many nostalgia buffs dream of those glistening silver trailers of yesteryear when reflecting on being transported to some romantic rural destination. But this is quite a different vision from what successful trailer retailers hope to achieve for their sales location. They want to be at the center of industrial activity, not get away from it. With this in mind, the grand opening of Airstream Los Angeles on Friday increased hope that other businesses will follow suit and cash in on the city’s central location. The company, whose luxury line of travel trailers promotes tourism, expects its retail location in San Gabriel to be a unique destination for consumers in Southern California. The most that Bob Wheeler, president and CEO of Ohio-based Airstream, would say about the retailer’s choice of location at the event was that “there’s always been this tremendous affinity for the Airstream brand and the

West Coast mindset,” and who attended the celebra- ridor-East, the new con- estimated to distribute $314 that “California has always tion, Preston explained struction of depressed rail billion worth of trade by been our best retail state.” that businesses in San Ga- lines that will carry prod- the year 2020, according to Wheeler also ex- briel are well-positioned ucts from the Los Angeles the Alameda Corridor-East plained how business- for access to emerging region to the ports of Los Construction Authority. friendly the city was to markets because this area Angeles and Long Beach Preston went on to his company, saying, “San is a key location to trans- all across the country,” explain how Airstream Gabriel rolled out the red porting goods as a retailer Preston said. seemed like an ideal fit carpet for this dealerfor San Gabriel, reship, (making) it so minding listeners that much easier than what the city was home to it might have been toy-maker Wham-O, otherwise.” He later known for successfully gave each councilmarketing the hula member an Honorary hoop in the 1950s.

Much of the crowd inspected and took snapshots of the display of vintage Airstreams while dreaming of an adventure-filled lifestyle of escaping mediocrity by touring along picturesque golden-state highways. Introduced in Culver City in 1931, Airstreams are now manufactured in Ohio. However, California has been the top retail state for Airstream for many years, according to Wheeler. Ranging in price from $38,000 to $98,000, Wheeler said that consumers use the aluminum travel trailers for more than just camping or touring. He said some customers have used them for offices or to live in them. Airstream Los Angeles is located at 1212 E. Las Tunas Drive.

Pasadena Seniors Mark 25 Years of History and More Approximately 130 residents of Villa Gardens, a landmark Pasadena retirement community, gathered in the facility’s fifth floor banquet room to commemorate the Silver Anniversary of the founding of the Residents Association today. The association was founded on the very same day as the formal dedication of the modern building complex and campus on Villa St. The event opened with a tribute to six Founding Residents—some of whole are now over 100—who were among those pioneers who moved into the community 25 years ago and are still active today. That was followed by a reception featuring a photo gallery of the history of Villa Gardens, and finally a gala dinner. Master of Ceremonies, resident Jim Haight, kept things moving at a comfortable but brisk pace, opening with a rendition of America the Beautiful sung by all, led by Sue Peace and accompanied by Janice Shafer. A range of speakers included Roberta Jacobsen, President Front Porch Communities & Services; Jeff Sianco, Divi-

sional VP and and interim Exec Director; Tim Dettman, Exec Director 1989-99; Keith Church, President of FACT Foundation; Angie Mont O’Brien, Chair of Pasadena Senior Commission; and Victor M Gordo, Councilmember, Pasadena District 5. Originally expected were Anthony Portantino, CA Assemblymember, District 44; Carol Liu, CA Senator, District 21; and Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard. All were otherwise required for state business in Sacramento, but sent gracious representatives, each of whom presented certificates of recognition to the association and stood in admirably for their bosses. After those brief presentations, the six Pioneer Founding Members were recognized and applauded, as well as seven past Presidents of the Residents Association, three Editorsin-Chief of the newsletter Voice of Villa Gardens, and two pioneer employees who started in 1982 and 1988 respectively. Finally Mr. Haight gave a lighthearted talk about how Residents Associations

can and should be both Angels and Devils as need be. The entire affair was over in an hour and closed with the group singing Auld Lang Syne. The Residents Association is an autonomous notfor-profit organization whose purpose is to unify the over 200 residents, to provide a wide range of community activities and benefits, and to act as a spokesperson for its members with the Villa Gardens administration. The community of Villa Gardens grew out of a need assessed in 1926 for housing and assistance for aging retired teachers. Then the California Teachers Association Southern Section (CTA-SS) established the Bureau of Welfare. One of the early board members and Director of Expansion was Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, a retired LA principal who later founded the National Retired Teachers Association in 1947, and went on to found AARP in 1958. In 1933 the CTASS purchased a 14 room house at 842 Villa Street for $10,000. (The seller wanted $15,000 but agreed

to a reduced price when he learned what the property was to be used for.) Over the years more land and residences were acquired, a full campus with beautiful gardens grew up, and with a history that is worthy of an entire story all its own, the original campus was finally replaced and re-opened for residents on April 25, 1987 as the beautiful, well-run property we know today.

Temple City fourth grader Ashley Mok, 10, is very busy this spring. Not just because she’s a student at Cloverly Elementary School; but also because she is playing violin in a quartet that is helping her orchestra, the renowned Los Angeles Children’s Orchestra (LACO), raise money to travel to New York City next year. LACO will perform at New York’s Carnegie Hall

in spring of 2013, and fundraising efforts have begun in earnest. On Saturday, May 5, four of the orchestra’s members, including Ashley, played for the public at the Japanese Village Plaza, in downtown Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo district. In an hour of playing, the children raised $225. “It’s expensive to get to Carnegie Hall, and every little bit helps,” says Susan Pascale,

who conducts the orchestra and directs the South Pasadena Strings Program. The program’s orchestras performed at Carnegie Hall in 2009 and 2005, and Ashley and her sister, Kristen Mok, performed with them during the 2009 trip. The other three quartet members are from South Pasadena. The four good friends are coached by South Pasadena Strings Program teacher Zach Dellinger. The children have named themselves ‘The Four Strings Quartet.’ Along with ‘Sakura,’ the ensemble performed other pieces from its large repertoire, including works by Hayden, Bach, and modern composers. In April, the four performed for U.S. Representative Adam Schiff’s Art Competition at the Huntington Gardens. On Mother’s Day, they will play at South Pasadena’s Oneonta Congregational Church on Garfield Avenue, at 9:30 a.m. For more information, go to http://www.stringsprogram.com, or contact the South Pasadena Strings Program at 626-403-4611.

Structure Fire on Live Oak Causes $150,000 in Damages On Friday, May 4, 2012, at 10:01 p.m. Arcadia Fire Department responded to a structure fire in the 500 block of West Live Oak Avenue in the City of Arcadia. Engine 105, Engine 106, Truck 105, Rescue Ambulance 106, and Battalion 105, along with fire apparatus from Monrovia and Los Angeles County Fire Departments responded to the scene. Upon arrival, firefighters witnessed smoke and flames showing from a single-story single-family structure. Fire crews immediately began search and rescue and suppression operations, and extinguished the blaze within 15

minutes of arrival. No other structures were damaged during this incident. The cause of the fire was electrical in nature, originating in a bedroom ceiling fan and spreading to the attic and adjacent rooms. During search and rescue efforts, firefighters found one family pet, a dog, had perished due to smoke inhalation. The occupants were not at home at the time of the incident, nor were any persons found inside the structure. The fire appears to be accidental in nature. The total dollar loss of the structure and contents is estimated to be $150,000.

There is no doubt that mothers and daughters share a special bond and on April 21, Alverno students and their mothers got to celebrate that bond with a special tea and fashion show in the Alverno Villa. The annual event, put on by Alverno fathers, is a time-honored school tradition. This year mothers and daughters were invited to wear hats or fascinators and then strut their stuff

“She’s a future member of the Alverno Class of 2025!” Following the fashion show, daughters were invited to read special letters they had written to their mothers. The afternoon concluded with a raffle for the antique teapots on the table that had diligently been collected by the Alverno fathers in the weeks leading up to event. “Our mothers are the first and most important role models we have

in a special fashion show. Categories for the fashion included “Most Alike,” “Most Retro,” “Most Spring,” “Most Modern,” and “Most Sophisticated.” A special prize was also given to the youngest participant in the fashion show, the 4 year old daughter of an Alverno alumna. “I’m so glad that Makayla got to attend the event and participate in the fashion show,” said Sophia Calles, Class of 1999,

in life,” said Ann Gillick, Head of School, “It is a pleasure for me to see so many young women and their mothers who treasure the special relationship they have with one another. I am grateful to these mothers for raising such incredible young women and sharing Alverno’s mission of empowering their daughters to be exactly the person she wants to be.”

La Salle’s Crystal Ball Honors it’s Principal Bonacci La Salle High School held its 13th Annual Crystal Ball, titled “Bootleggers Ball,” on April 27 at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena. Crystal Ball Chair, Tess Crabtree P’12, ’14, chose the theme that spanned the time from the Roaring Twenties to the end of prohibition in the Thirties. “That gave us a lot of fun options for decorations and props,” she said, standing next to a stack of oak whiskey barrels. The night was filled with fun, fellowship, dinner and dancing, but there was also the thrill of the pursuit as guests bid on several dozen items during the live and silent auctions. Auction items included tickets to the "American Idol" season finale taping, a trip to the 2013 Masters Golf Championship, a sixnight South African safari, or VIP tickets to see the Lakers play at home in a private luxury suite in the Staples Center. Over 400 guests came to congratulate this year’s Crystal Ball honoree: La Salle’s Principal, Patrick

Bonacci, AFSC, P’94, ’97. Pat was selected as the recipient of the 2012 Lasallian Award. Pat served at La Salle for the past 27 years, initially as Assistant Principal and then as Principal for the last 15 years. Pat will become the Vice President for Mission on July 1, 2012. “Oh what a night!” exclaimed Tess immediately following the event. “I just want to thank each and everyone on the committee for giving their time and talents for the sake of all the students at La Salle. Our Bootleggers Ball team of volunteers and staff took care of everything from the littlest detail to the largest undertakings... every piece of the puzzle came together perfectly. Simply saying thank you does not seem to cover the sincere gratitude that I feel,” she said. The Crystal Ball is La Salle’s largest fundraiser of the year. Proceeds from the evening help support our academic, athletic, student life, arts and financial aid programs.

McDade Case Continued from page 1

Gomez. Harper said statements made by Riddle to the media prompted her to name the veteran officer in the federal lawsuit, and despite a warning, Riddle continued to disparage the slain teenager in the press. All defendants in the case were served Monday and have 21 days to file a responsive pleading. The lawsuit also alleges that Chief Sanchez failed to enact the reforms suggested by the Los Angeles County Office of Independent Review in the wake of the 2009 Leroy Barnes shooting. Harper questions the department's policy of responding to reports of an armed robbery without lights and sirens .

In the lawsuit Harper wrote: "the only other alternative under the current policy is for black men in Northwest Pasadena is to talk slowly with their hands up high at night because in stealth mode there is no plausible way for them to know they are being pursued by police." According to a statement sent via email, the offices of Caree Harper will also be filing an ex parte motion to block the deportation of Oscar Carrillo so that he may be deposed. In order to get a Court Order the defendants had to be served with Complaint. The Complaint was amended and signed on what would have been KendrecMcDade’s 20th birthday5/5/12.

Arcadia Law Day Offers Free Legal Advice Saturday The City of Arcadia and the Arcadia Chinese Association will offer a free Ask a Lawyer Program at the Arcadia Public Library, 20 West Duarte Road, on Saturday, May 12 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. as part of the nationwide Law Day celebration. Volunteer attorneys are available to meet with the public and provide them with a free brief one-on-one consultation on general legal questions. They will provide a summary of legal rights and general advice on a “walk-up” basis and, where appropriate, will refer individuals to the proper legal or governmental organizations. Law Day attorneys are unable to accept any cases from the people they meet. Law Day attorneys will answer questions on immigration, consumer rights, landlord-tenant issues, insurance problems, property, family law, bankruptcy, government benefits, employee rights, workers’ compensation, personal injury and other topics. Informational brochures and pamphlets are available as additional legal resources. Financial questions often arise in correlation with legal issues. Financial advisors are available at Law Day to offer expert advice in the areas of taxes, real estate, investment, financial planning, etc. “In these economic times, the City of Arcadia and the Arcadia Chinese Association thought that the public could truly benefit

Event chairperson and Council Member Gary Kovacic started Law Day 14 years ago. -Photo by Terry Miller

from not only answers to legal questions but also financial questions that undoubtedly surface,” said event chairperson and Council Member Gary Kovacic. “Our goal is for the various volunteers to provide the public with as much information as possible. Law Day helps hundreds of people every year, thousands of people since the event's inception. With financial advisors, Law Day offers one more area of information to people who may be able to benefit from some professional input.” Participants are encouraged to bring any information pertinent to their case so the attorney or financial expert is able to give the most accurate and reliable advice. No reservations are required for this free service and everyone is welcome to attend. “Law Day provides a much-needed service in

the community that can truly make a positive difference in the lives of those we see at the event. All of our members look forward to volunteering at Law Day because this event gives people information and guidance that they might not be able to receive otherwise. This is our fourteenth year of cosponsoring this event and we can’t imagine a better use of our volunteer time and effort,” said Josephine Louie, President of the Arcadia Chinese Association. Volunteers from the Arcadia Chinese Association will provide event-day coordination and language translations where needed at this year’s Law Day event. Translation services will be available in Mandarin and Cantonese. Other languages may be available. For more information, please call Arcadia City Hall at 574-5460.

Little Known Benefit Available for Veterans Veterans of any age can get assistance from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (USDVA) but a little known benefit is available for older Veteran’s. This benefit is called Improved Pension with aid and attendance. This benefit helps pay for assisted living, nursing home care and home care for veterans 65 years old or older or their surviving spouse. For older veterans or their surviving spouse receiving this benefit could mean the ability to stay in their home longer with the aid of a home care provider or the ability to move to an assisted living facility sooner when this type of care is needed. This aid and attendance benefit is a reimbursement: claimant must spend the money on care in order to receive the benefit thus the

veterans and his/her surviving spouse can have some financial means and still apply for this benefit. Another unique feature of this benefit is that, while the veterans must have served at least one day during war and 90 days after he/she is NOT required to have a combat related injury or disability. Many older veterans are not aware that the United States Congress in 1979 passed an improved pension program that made this benefit available to veterans or their surviving spouse. For the veterans who are already in assisted living, receiving care at home or who are in a nursing home these benefits can be a tremendous help to the family. Many World War II veterans are in their 80’s or 90’s thus their sons and daughters could well be in their 60’s

and facing retirement issues of their own. What tremendous help this benefit could be to these families. The above “snap-shot” of this benefit may make applying for this benefit sound easy, it is not. There is a good deal of application paperwork and the veterans or their surviving spouse must qualify in 3 areas, they must be medically qualified, income qualified, asset qualified and they must also have an Honorable or regular discharge from the service. For answers to questions related to the aid and attendance benefit please contact War Era Veterans at www. WarEraVet.com or call 1(800) 901-0940 (War Era Veterans is not part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs but a separate Veterans Advocacy Company.)

Foothill Unity Center Deputy Director Betty R. McWilliams has been chosen from a field of over 20 candidates to assume leadership of the organization effective June 4. McWilliamns succeeds Joan E. Whitenack, who is retiring after nearly 17 years as head of the agency. As a key member of the Center’s management team for 14 years, McWilliams has played a pivotal role in its growth into one of the most

effective nonprofit agencies in the area. In partnership with Whitenack, she led the expansion of its program service area from three cities to eleven, now providing services to more than 4,000 unduplicated very low income local families and homeless each year. She was instrumental in securing the Center’s federal designation as Community Action Agency for the Foothill Area and in the success of its major annual fundraising event, the Golden Plate Awards Dinner. In addition to overseeing the Center’s day-to-day operations, McWilliams has helped to develop many of its client programs, including Health Services, Pet Food Bank, Senior/Disabled Home Delivery, case management and much more. She has also been instrumental in the planning and execution of its annual Back to School, Thanksgiving and Holiday Distributions. Prior to joining the Center, McWilliams served as Executive Di-

rector of the Pasadena Senior Center for six years and held other administrative positions in the private sector. “After a months-long search and the review of a strong field of final candidates, Betty emerged as the hands-down choice of our Executive Search Committee,” said David Steinmeier, President of the Center’s Board of Directors. “As Foothill Unity Center enters a new era of helping local families in need, we are fortunate and proud to have Betty’s exceptional leadership skills, seasoned experience, caring and passion at the helm.” NOTE: A retirement party for Joan Whitenack is planned for Thursday evening, June 28, 5 – 8 p.m. at the Double Tree Hotel in Monrovia. For information and reservations ($10 per person), contact Barbara Rolf at the Center, 626.358.3486 or email barbara@foothillunitycenter.org

However, after finishing her financial review of the General Fund and its shortcomings, Administrative Services Director Karin Schnaider encouraged the weary council members to at least consider five fee proposals for the 2012-2013 fiscal year fee schedule. Schnaider had set the stage for the council to consider fee increases after reporting the General Fund has a deficit of $48,000 and that the city is facing a reduction in revenues of $317,600 for the current fiscal year. “There are a few fees that we’d really like to encourage that have gone to their commissions and have been encouraged by their commissions,” she said, noting the cumbersome fee study is 45 pages in length. Councilmember Chris Koerber noted that the public’s participation may be affected by the late discussion. “It’s 10:30 at night, and there doesn’t look like there’s too many folks in the public who might be interested in this,” he said. Mayor Josh Moran decided to set the fee study aside for the current meeting and hold a brief discussion on the fee proposals recommended by Schnaider, which included production film-

ing in Sierra Madre, a sewer permit fee for restaurants, the bundling of building and safety fees, a library DVD fee, and something called the Mills Act fee. Director of Development Services Danny Castro explained the Mills Act fee as a “very cumbersome process” where residents can apply to receive a tax break for the upkeep on their historic property. “You must enter into a contract with the city,” Castro said, explaining that the fee is an upfront cost for the processing of the application. “The owner benefits in the end because every year his taxes are reduced by up to 40 or 60 percent.” The sewer permit fee for restaurants is a new state requirement for cities to inspect restaurants’ drains to enforce the proper disposal of everyday fats, oils and grease (FOG). The fee proposed for restaurants is $206. The only fee proposal that raised any significant public disapproval Tuesday night was the so-called DVD library rental fee. A fee of one dollar per week was proposed by staff to check out DVDs. Schnaider said this fee would offset the cost to the library for operating a much-needed credit card ma-

chine for its patrons. Francis Garbaccio spoke out against the fee, reminding the council that the DVD collection is supported in large part by the Friends of the Sierra Madre Library. “In other words, they’re a gift,” she said. “And I find it difficult having the library charge for something that has been given by a group of people who work very hard to support the library.” As a volunteer to the library, Garbaccio said she knows how extensively the DVD collection is used by nannies and parents of children in the community. She said that libraries are intended to be free, and “our goal should be encouraging the use of the library, not charging our citizens.” Retired librarian Lida Bushloper also spoke out against the fee, saying that by charging for a certain kind of library material, you are creating a two-tiered system. “One tier for those who can pay, and a more restrictive tier for those who cannot.” The Next City Council/ CRA regular meeting will take place at City Hall on Tuesday, May 22, where the council will continue its discussion and public hearing on the fee schedule for the upcoming fiscal year.

Monrovia PD

Theft of City Property Over the last several months, a number of city sprinkler valves have been cut and the brass fittings have been stolen. These valves operate the city sprinkler systems for the parkways along our city roads. The valves are most likely being stolen for the value of the brass. Suspects are cutting the brass out with a Sawzall type tool. City signs are also being stolen at an increasing rate. Suspects are steeling stop signs, street name signs, street sweeping signs and speed limit signs. Police are requesting help from the public to report crimes and help catch these thieves. These suspects may even appear to be contractors servicing the equipment. Vehicle Burglary April 30 at 5:16 p.m., a vehicle burglary was reported in the 100 block of West Lemon. The victim’s car was parked on the street near their residence. Unknown suspect(s) entered the vehicle and took a laptop computer and other miscellaneous property. Investigation continuing. Drunk in Public / Resisting Arrest / Warrant Arrest - Three Suspects Arrested May 1 at 2:30 a.m., an officer observed three male subjects drinking alcohol in front of an apartment complex. He attempted to detain all three subjects as they walked down the driveway. One subject stopped and the other two fled. Officers made a thorough search of the area

and located the two subjects that ran. One subject was arrested for drunk in public and an outstanding warrant; the other two were arrested for resisting and delaying a police officer. Grand Theft Auto May 2 at 6:19 a.m., a vehicle was reported stolen from the 300 block of West Lime. The reporting party parked his vehicle, a red, 1988, Toyota Tacoma truck in front of his residence, locking the vehicle. The following morning he discovered the vehicle missing. There was no evidence at the scene to indicate a window had been smashed. Investigation continuing. Gang Activity / Gang Injunction Violations Four Suspects Arrested May 3 at 4:27 p.m., a female subject called police and reported shots fired in the 600 block of East Lemon. Officers arrived on scene and confirmed no shots had been fired; however, a vehicle occupied by four male subjects had driven by yelling out gang slurs. The vehicle was located and stopped by officers, who conducted a felony stop. Officers recognized two of the subjects in the vehicle as suspects in an assault with a deadly weapon incident that occurred in the City of Duarte, and the vehicle matched, as well. Sheriff’s deputies responded and took custody of the two suspects. Monrovia police officers arrested the other two subjects and each was charged with three counts of violating the Gang Injunction. One of the subjects is currently on parole and a parole hold was obtained.

A HEARING on the petition will be held on June 4, 2012 at 8:30 AM in Dept. No. 9 located at 111 N. Hill St., Los Angeles, CA 90012.

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.

MAY 10, 2012 - MAY 16, 2012

Murder at Assisted Living Facility in Pasadena On Monday, May 7, 2012 at approximately 5:48 PM, Pasadena Police Officers were conducting an investigation at the Pasadena Residential Care Center, 1400 block of North Garfield Avenue, when an employee approached and asked for assistance regarding a patient not breathing. Officers responded to a room within the facility and discovered

George Schatford, male/ White-61, Pasadena resident, unresponsive. The Pasadena Fire Department responded to the scene, but they were unable to revive Mr. Shatford. While the Pasadena Police Department was investigating the cause of death, officers were approached by an individual who admitted to killing Mr. Shatford. This suspect was identified as

Paul Lopez, male/White-38, a Pasadena Residential Care resident. Mr. Lopez was transported and booked for murder at the Pasadena Police Department. Pasadena Homicide/ Assault Detectives and the coroner’s office responded to the location. The California Health & Human Services Agency was advised of the incident.

Homelessness in Sierra Madre Continued from page 4

Barbara where the “homeless problem” garnered the attention of actors and activists like Martin Sheen 20 years ago after signs saying “Homeless Go Home” were being toted around that city, Pasadena offers a proactive approach to finding long term solutions. Not trying to sweep the homeless under a rug Santa Barbara’s collective philospohy at one point was NIMBY (Not in My Back Yard). There really is no panacea for such a problem but there is compassion on behalf 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, you may call 714.730.2727 or visit this Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com, using the file number assigned to this case 11-02578-3. 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. The total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligations secured by the property to be sold and reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of this Notice of Trustee`s Sale is estimated to be $443,866.62 (Estimated), provided, however, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary`s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier`s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee`s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable.
