A Whale of a Bridge Emerges Over the 210 Fwy in Arcadia By Susan Motander
They took up signs in his memory. They lined the street and shouted at passersby so Pasadena would not forget 19-year-old Kendrec McDade’s name or how he died. The demonstration last week took place less than 30feet from the hotel entrance where city and police officials under intense public scrutiny for the McDade shooting received various honors from the NAACP Pasadena chapter's annual awards dinner. But those outside refused to be quiet. On Thursday, Sep. 13, the Pasadena Branch of The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People hosted its 27th Annual Ruby McKnight Williams Awards Dinner at the Pasadena Hilton on South Los Robles Ave. Serving as master of ceremonies was Phillip L. Sanchez, Chief of Police for the Pasadena Police Department. Family and members of the community who demonstrated outside the Hilton responded with outrage. Retired City of Pasadena employee James Green, who attended the demonstration, said the Chief of Police’s presence at the NAACP sent the “wrong message” to a community still in shock over the McDade shooting - and while still waiting for the results of ongoing investigations Please see page 14

For the last few weeks and for the next several weeks, the eastbound lanes of the 210 Freeway have been closed from midnight to five a.m. five nights a week to allow for the removal of the “falsework” surrounding the new bridge over the 210 freeway. As the wood and metal structure is removed the bridge itself is slowly being revealed. The cast concrete features of the bridge that are emerging look a great deal
like the ventral pleats on the underbelly of a whale. It is an apt image as this is one whale of a bridge. It will span 584 feet from one end to the other, stretching from the center of the 210 Freeway over the eastbound lanes into Arcadia. It will allow the Gold Line to go from Union station beyond its current terminus at Sierra Madre Villa in East Pasadena. More than 640 full Please see page 27
Healing the Wounds of War Sierra Madre School's Garden of Goodwill Offers Hope Amid Rapidly Changing World By Terry Miller

Dorothy's Place The Very Thoughts
By Dorothy Denne I know I don't have to ask if anyone else has noticed the very long, very hot, very humid weather we have been suffering through for a very long time. My poor brain feels very cooked. I feel very un-creative in this heat. I have a deadline approaching very quickly. There is very, very little promise of a snowfall before that deadline arrives. For all those very reasons, I decided to go through a box I have filled with very many sayings, quotes, and quips that I have collected from very many sources. Before I got to that, a very dear friend sent me a very long list of Thoughts for Today in an e-mail. Though I very much agree with some of
them, I cannot take credit for them. I would be very happy to acknowledge the creator or the compilator if I could. Since that is not very possible right now, I'm sure he/she would be very happy to know that I and my readers enjoyed the list very much. Birds of a feather flock together.....then poop on your car. A penny saved is a government oversight. It is tough to lose weight in old age because, by then, your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends. The easiest way to find something you lost is to buy a replacement. He who hesitates is probably right. Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are XL. If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame. The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so
he can tell when he's really in trouble. Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'THE' and 'IRS' together, it spells 'THEIRS'. Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it. When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of Algebra. Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks. This next one is a mix from the original and me: Lord, as I travel this very winding path of life, keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.......Thank you very much, AMEN!

Some years ago I was a faculty member at Ambassador College in Pasadena. We had superb facilities as well as many celebrities in areas of sport, entertainment, and culture. My boss was Garner Ted Armstrong who loved to play basketball on the faculty team. Talk about a classy production at the basketball games, we wore Laker like uniforms and had a pep band as good as at any college level. Our college gym was world class in every way. Saturday nights brought out a filled gym with over 1200 people cheering for their favorite class team. This represented freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, and the exciting faculty team with Garner Ted Armstrong as the explosive, dynamic head of the college putting in 30 foot jump shots at the age of nearly 50. Our goal at Ambassador was to represent an attitude of achievement along with an attitude of gratitude for our bodies, for our school, for our future. This meant showing sportsmanship in our sports program. We were a witness to the world with our athletic programs as well as character development. Garner Ted and I had a chance to spend quite a number of hours discussing the future of Ambassador sports. He
wanted the best. We had Keith Erickson of the Lakers come to the campus for a visit. Keith was impressed with the beauty and the character of the campus as well as the outgoing students there. He said he would like to send his children there someday and we were very touched by his kind remarks. Not long after that Kareem Abdul Jabbar, the greatest scorer in NBA history, gave a clinic to high school age students at Ambassador in Pasadena as well as our SEP summer camp for teenagers in Orr, Minnesota. There were many who expressed a deep gratitude for this great player to come to our very small school and offer winning basketball tips as well as character points for future winners in our program. Kareem was very friendly toward all of us and each of us received warm handshakes, congratulations and his autographed photo. Garner Ted was very active in many areas of his life. He was an avid outdoorsman, loved to hunt, and went to Colorado to hunt deer with other ministers and faculty members. He enjoyed skiing with his best friend, Jim Thornhill, who was a world class skier and they went to various locations for these wonderful trips. Ted Armstrong was an excellent pilot. He took our varsity basketball team to Mexico for various tournaments there. I still can remember standing just behind him in the cockpit just before he descended the plane into the airport in Mexico City. Garner Ted taught me: 1. The love of God. 2. The love of sport. 3. The love of people. 4. The love of language and speech. 5. The love of church. 6. The love of family. 7. The love of life.

Letter to the Editor Send your letters to firstname.lastname@example.org Dear Editor: I would like to report a puzzling situation I have noticed at the Mayflower Elementary School in Monrovia. On four different occasions since school started, I have walked by the school and noticed that there appear to be school or classroom books being left outdoors overnight in the little memorial garden , either laying scattered on the ground or on a large wooden table. Never have I seen anyone around who
might be interested in picking them up. Once recently I saw the books laying there as I passed , and a little later it started to sprinkle rain. Not wanting to walk on in the rain, I started back home, passing the school , thinking someone might have picked up the books up to take them inside to protect them from the elements. They were still there when I passed , still on the table or laying on the ground.
Last Friday evening about 7 PM I walked by the school and saw more books scattered around in the little garden. When I walked by on Saturday morning, the books were still there. It makes me sad to see books -any books-treated like this. That the Mayflower School is not bothering to safeguard its childrens' book collection may seem to be a small point. But this is an election year when we in California are being
ask to vote for tax increases to fund our schools. Is the Monrovia School District so affluent that it can easily afford to replace school books which are being left outside to the vagaries of the elements? I will certainly think twice before voting for more taxes for schools. If schools can't take care of their property, why do they need more money? Yours truly, Mary K. Kelley J.D. Monrovia
Supporters of Fired El Monte Lifeguards Make A Big Splash at El Monte City Council By Dena Burroughs It was a lively sight at the El Monte Civic Center Tuesday night. News trucks lined up the street outside the complex sporting the logos of all the major newscasts – ABC7, KTLA 5 LIVE, T52 Telemundo. Inside, camera crews took a large chunk of the available space. The City Council meeting hall filled up to capacity, and chairs were placed on the hallway inside City Hall East and outside in the common area in front of television screens that transmitted the going-ons inside. The biggest action that an El Monte City Council meeting has seen this year was the result of the 14 lifeguards recently fired from the El Monte Aquatic Center on account of their “Lifeguard Style” version of Korean pop star Psy’s “Gangnam Style.” The lifeguards exercised their right to speak for three minutes each in front of the City Council during the Public Comment portion of the meeting. In their support doz-
ens more spoke to the Council, as did a few who thought the lifeguards should remain fired, and in the process the Public Comments extended for nearly two hours and forty five minutes. The matter of the 14 fired lifeguards was not even on the meeting agenda. The El Monte City Council had held a meeting on the subject the Friday before, a meeting that was announced just 24-hours earlier and which not very many people knew about or were able to attend, a meeting that one of the people present called “seemingly strategic.” Only three of the lifeguards were able to make it that Friday due to school and work schedules, so Michael Roa, one of the fired lifeguards, said that they would not comment at that moment. However, their comments were heard at the regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday night. One by one the majority of the speakers asked the City Council to reconsider the firing of the lifeguards. They questioned the man-

agement’s choices. “Why isn’t some sort of protocol being followed?” asked resident Gabriella Sandoval. “In any job people receive verbal warnings, then written warnings, then perhaps a suspension, but firing is always the last option. And why did the firing only trickle up to a certain point? If what they did was so bad, why weren’t the administrators above them all fired too?” Yvonne Tam, a fired lifeguard, told the Council that the video was not in any way meant to shed a bad

He will speak and sign his books at 12 noon, of which "Half the World in Light - New and Selected Poems" is his most recent.

Earlier this year Herrera was named Poet Laureate for the State of California. T. Jefferson Parker, who will speak and sign his books at 1:30 p.m., is a threetime recipient of the Mystery Writers of America's Edgar Award for best novel, and has won numerous other awards for his novels all dealing with crime, life and death in Southern California. His latest bestseller is "The Jaguar" which features protagonist Charlie Hood, a Los Angeles Sheriff's Deputy on loan to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms task force working the illegal gun trade along the U.S. Mexican border. Novelist Susan Straight, whose book, "Take One Candle Light a Room" was named one of the best novels of 2010 by the Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, and Kirkus, will speak at 3 p.m. Following her talk, she will sign copies of her new book, "Between Heaven and Here," Other authors scheduled to appear include: Mystery writers, Teresa Burrell, "The Advocate," Gayle Carline, "Hit or Missus," Michael Mayo, "Alex Walker and the Circus of Secrets," Gayle Bartos-Pool, "The Johnny Casino Casebook," and Alice Zogg, "Murder at the Cubbyhole".

Fiction writers include: David McCabe "Without Sin," Rebecca Woods, "Living Through Charlie," Lola James, "Bound to Remember," and M. Adams, "For a Taste of Morgan". Zuhdi Sardar's "Between Iraq and Hard Places" paints a canvas of words that - in light of the Middle East's recent "Arab Spring" - is both a metaphor of our times and mirror to us all. Author/TV-radio personality, Manny Pacheco highlights character actors of Hollywood's Golden Age and films telling America's story in "Forgotten Hollywood," while Hollywood movie historian, Mark Thomas McGee takes readers behind-the-scenes in the making of the classic "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," and Gerald Schiller, details true tales from Tinseltown's past in "It Happened in Hollywood: Remarkable Events that Shaped History". Dennis Sanchez offers a humorous Wizard of Oz parody from Toto's point of view in "Toto's Adventures with Dorothy". Festival goers will find inspirational stories. "Joseph Borda's "Across the Seas" is his personal immigrant account of serving in three wars and working on ships to earn the American citizenship for which he strived for years. "Living in the Mouth of the Wolf" by Sal DiVita provides authentic accounts of events as experienced by ordinary people in Fascist Italy during the Second World War. Others include: Chuck Robertson, "A Simple Man's Story of Esther," Glen Gibson, "Not the Way You Thought it Would Be," Loa Blasucci, "All Health's Breaking Loose," Jesse Cozean, "My Grandfather's War," and Brenda Winner, "Ten Perfect Fingers".

California Communities Call on Fresh & Easy to Obey Liquor Control Law Underage Liquor Sales at Fresh & Easy Tied to Store's Refusal to Comply with Ban on Sale of Alcohol Through Self-Checkout Machines Despite the enactment of a state ban on the sale of alcohol through self-checkout machines at the beginning of the year, grocery stores like Fresh & Easy are still being cited for selling alcohol to minors through these registers. On Wednesday, elected officials, members of the clergy, and concerned community members will held a press conference to call on Fresh & Easy to comply with the ban and do their part to keep alcohol out of the hands of minors and
intoxicated persons. Fresh & Easy stores have been cited multiple times for selling alcohol to minors through their self-checkout machines, including a citation at the Manhattan Beach store after the ban went into effect. Fresh & Easy has been a vocal opponent of this law, and their lobby group, the California Grocers Association, filed a lawsuit that has postponed the law’s enforcement. State Senator Ted Lieu and Assemblywoman
Betsy Butler are calling on Fresh & Easy to do their part in preventing underage drinking by obeying the law. Alcohol Justice and Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE) affiliates in Los Angeles and San Francisco have gathered over 6,000 signatures of local residents to petition Fresh & Easy to obey this common-sense public safety measure. The petition was delivered to Fresh & Easy at a press conference in Manhattan Beach.

Los Angeles Heart Walk Sept. 29 at the Pasadena Rose Bowl The American Heart Association’s Los Angeles Heart Walk on Sept. 29 at the Pasadena Rose Bowl aims to raise awareness and critical funds to fight heart disease and stroke – the nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers. In connection with this we’d like to share the stories of three San Gabriel Valley locals who have been touched by cardiovascular disease. They know personally why community support is key to the fight against the nation’s leading health threats. Erika Perez is a 38-year-old mother from
Temple City who suffered a massive heart attack this past February, only 10 days after giving birth to her third child. Since the incident she has taken steps to improve her health as well as inspire her entire family to live healthy. Pasadena resident Anabelle Provisor was born with a life-threatening heart defect. Fortunately, when Anabelle was born in 2007 the science and technology were already there to help doctors not only diagnose the problem, but also correct it. Anabelle has had two open-heart surgeries and she is now 5

school in the 1920’s had built a small garden at the elementary school as a gesture of good will to celebrate the completion of a new school building in 1930. Then, it had a very small fish pond, a bridge, a bonsai pine tree as well as a stone lantern., according to an article published in The LA Times in the early 1990’s. The rediscovery of the Japanese garden (circa 199394) and how the students got into restoring the lost treasure that was destroyed as a result of bigotry and hatred of Japanese Americans during the post Pearl Harbor days, was brought to life through teacher Helen Pontarelli who hopes the garden will continue to be an unexpected, emergent curriculum at the school. While the stories vary on the amount of vandalism and the conjecture about anti-Japanese sentiment at that point in history, the fact remains that it was damaged and left unattended for many years after the war. Enter Helen Obizowa, a former student at the school and resident of Sierra Madre, who decided it would be a good idea to resurrect the garden in 1992. Obizowa, now 92, is credited for the original concept and then approached Watanabe with her idea. Watanabe granted her wish without a moment’s hesitation. Linda Sandoval and lots of other parent/teacher volunteers helped raise for the garden’s upkeep. And of course, her daughter Natalie was one of the first students to get the project rolling. After posing for a few pictures, we sat down for a chat and a wonderful history lesson. Becky Bickel, Katherine Bishop, Esther Salinas ( principal), Helen Pontarelli, Ty Gaffney ( former principal ), Arturo Garcia who is Lew Watanabe’s right hand man on Watanabe’s projects, Linda Sandoval and daughter Natalie along with Lew Watanabe all had something unique to offer on Saturday. The Garden of Goodwill would be not complete without the mild mannered and modest Lew Watanabe. Watanabe is one of those rare individuals who not only has volunteered his time, money and expertise in restoring and expanding the garden but he has helped garner community interest and keep it. Watanabe along with a little help from his friends in Sierra Madre and community sup-

port over the years but has been instrumental in promoting what he believes was “ordained by God.” Watanabe said Saturday that he truly believes this project would never have happened “had it not been for the Lord.” The original Japanese garden built in 1931, was the effort of the parents of Japanese American students at the school. The carefully constructed and peaceful garden was then vandalized and completely destroyed by those who over-reacted to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The sixth grade class of 1995 read about this part of Sierra Madre’s history and discovered an article in the Los Angeles Times (Oct. 1994) documenting the history of what was once a garden at their school, according to Natalie Sandoval who was s student in Helen Pontarelli’s class then. Upon reading the article, Natalie and the students of Sierra Madre School decided to restore it, undertook a massive fundraising and labor effort to do just that. The students held car washes, bake sales, wrote letters, and sold origami cranes among other things to fund the reconstruction. They also did the physical labor, digging the bridge out of the mud and excavated the garden. Watanabe became a central figure for the ambitious project and as a landscape gardener, he designed the new garden and led the reconstruction. Through sales and donations, students were able to raise enough money to rebuild the garden. On Sunday, February 4, 1995, the Japanese Garden was officially dedicated. The ceremony
included 17 members of the class of 1931 and their teacher. The dedication ceremony included Taiko drumming, dancing, and a karate demonstrations. The garden was officially named – Garden of Goodwill. Kids and parents put together a massive volunteer effort to keep the garden clean and on Veterans Day last year and studied in depth why happened to Japanese Americans after the attack on Pearl Harbor – also what became of many of those who were sent to internment camps as a direct result of the military action. Internment by the United States government in 1942 of about 110,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese who lived along the Pacific coast of the United States to camps called “War Relocation Centers,” in the wake of Imperial Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. The internment of Japanese Americans was applied unequally throughout the United States. Japanese Americans who lived on the West Coast of the United States were all interned, while in Hawaii, where more than 150,000 Japanese Americans composed over one-third of the territory’s population, 1,200 to 1,800 Japanese Americans were interned. Of those interned, 62% were American citizens. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt(FDR) authorized the internment with Executive Order 9066, issued February 19, 1942, which allowed local military commanders to designate “military areas” as “exclusion zones,” from which “any or all persons may be excluded.” This power was used Please see page 27

Joanne Crawford-Duner has been elected Chair of the board of Directors of the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus (LACC), one of the world’s foremost children’s choirs. The Covina Hills
resident, whose term began on August 1, has served on LACC’s Board of Direcords since 2008 and is the first non-LACC parent to serve in LACC’s key leadership role. She succeeds David Scheidemantle, who continues on the Board of Directors as Past Chair. CrawfordDuner is the Director of Marketing Communications for Nestle USA, where she oversees public relations, digital and social media, packaging communications and consumer promotions for the Beverage Division. “It is a pleasure to announce Joanne’s election to this key post,” says LACC Artistic Director Anne Tomlinson. “A passionate
advocate for LACC, she is deeply committed to fostering the organization’s continued growth and artistic excellence through her tremendous business acumen, strong community focus and visionary leadership.” In 2009, CrawfordDuner helped to arrange Nestle USA’s sponsorship of LACC’s “First Experiences in Singing,” a satellite after-school enrichment program piloted at Daniel Webster Elementary School in Pasadena. Building on the program’s success and with Nestle USA’s continued support, LACC will expand into two more local elementary schools this coming school year.
Since 1932, Arcadia White Christmas has become a long standing tradition of reaching out and helping needy families during the holiday season. This year marks a special milestone for this organization as we celebrate our 80th Anniversary; the program began during the Depression when a schoolteacher observed some of her students coming to school hungry and poorly clothed. Out of her concern and generosity, a food drive was organized throughout the city for the students and their families during the holidays, thus giving rise to the name “White Christmas”. Today, they are again facing challenging times. Most families have in some way been touched by economic hardship. Looking at the beautiful homes in neighborhoods throughout Arcadia, many people are surprised to learn there are many low income families and individuals in the city. Less noticed are the homeless, the race track employees, senior citizens on fixed incomes and those who have
lost their jobs. Our Welfare Department provides assistance to Arcadia residents and to the homeless in Arcadia. Each client receives a listening ear and a helping hand. Assistance varies depending on the individual needs and include: Food, clothing, household items and financial assistance in emergency situations. However, difficult times also present opportunities to help and serve. This calls us to look beyond our own circumstances and work together as a community to aid families who really need our help. White Christmas continues to be a community based program run by volunteers. Last year they helped 178 Arcadia families who needed assistance. From the generous support of individuals and organizations like you, they will be able to provide these families gift certificates for groceries at Ralph’s, Walmart gift cards and a special toy for the younger children. As the holiday season draws near, they invite and
encourage you and/or your organization to help your fellow neighbor. Your contributions to Arcadia White Christmas will once again enable them to assist the numerous needy families in having a more joyful holiday season. If you or your organization would like to support this worthy cause, it would be greatly appreciated. You can mail your check (make payable to Arcadia White Christmas) to: Arcadia White Christmas, c/o Lee Segal, 1135 Fallen Leaf, Arcadia, CA 91006.

The Social Whirl “Unforgettable” Evening Starring Natalie Cole and Honoring Dennis & Carolyn Lee Kicks Off Social Season Oct. 13
Crystal Ball honorees, the Unforgettable Carolyn and Dennis Lee. -Courtesy Photo
Methodist Hospital’s 23rd annual Crystal Ball with headliner Natalie Cole is aptly themed An Unforgettable Night with Natalie Cole. The glamorous affair is set for Saturday, October 13 at the Pasadena Convention Center, the annual black tie gala will honor former hospital president and CEO Dennis Lee and his wife, Carolyn, for their years of support for the hospital. Dennis Lee retired in 2011 after 17 years as CEO, and Carolyn was an equally committed supporter of the hospital during the couple’s two decades here. It should be a truly unforgettable evening, thanks to the months of work by co-chairs John Wuo and Peggy Tsiang Cherng and their dedicated committee. “It’s really a great honor to join with Peggy in honoring Dennis and Carolyn, who have done so much for the
hospital and for this community,” Wuo said. Themselves devoted hospital and Crystal Ball supporters, Peggy and her husband, Andrew, were Crystal Ball honorees in 2004, and John and his wife, Jane, co-hosted the event in 2007. This year’s proceeds will support the hospital’s elite stroke program, designated an advanced primary stroke center for Los Angeles County by The Joint Commission and recent recipient of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With the Guidelines-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award. The co-chairs and their committee have set their sights on surpassing the $530,000 raised by last year’s event. Wuo, immediate past chair of the Methodist Hospital Foundation board, is a former Arcadia mayor who currently serves on the city council. He has been a member of the foundation board since 2004, serves on the Cardiac Council and has supported many high profile hospital programs, including The Next Generation of Care campaign for the new North Tower. Through the years, Cherng has supported many of the same programs. Additionally, Cherng is co-founder
of the Panda Restaurant Group, sponsor of the Panda Cares Charity Golf Invitational, which donates a significant portion of its tournament proceeds to Methodist Hospital. “Crystal Ball is a very important event,” Cherng said. “Once a year it gives us a great opportunity to showcase to the community what the hospital is all about.

Recycle Used Oil & Filters! Do you change your car’s motor oil? Did you know that used motor oil and oil filters are recyclable? Used oil can be re-refined or processed into new motor oil. 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. One gallon of used oil can contaminate a million gallons of drinking water; polluting our waterways and threaten fish and aquatic life. Prevent pollution; recycle used motor oil and filters!

supports the Society in many ways. The tenth Marker will be dedicated this fall, coinciding with the unveiling of a new life-size statue of Lucky Baldwin. The 127-acre Arboretum was the heart of the sprawling Rancho Santa Anita, originally an outpost of Mission San Gabriel. Baldwin purchased 8,500 acres of Rancho Santa Anita in 1875 and eventually owned nearly 50,000 acres of today’s San Gabriel Valley before he died in 1909. His daughter, Anita, maintained her father’s beloved Santa Anita home site for decades but was forced to sell it in 1936 due to financial burdens created by the Great Depression.

Planned Parenthood Celebrates 79 Years This year, Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley celebrates 79 years as a vital part of the local San Gabriel Valley communities with an elegant Farm-to-Tableinspired dinner at a popular Pasadena restaurant. “We’re here to ensure that nobody gets left behind as the health care framework in our country shifts,” said Sheri Bonner, President and CEO. “We’re grateful for our growing number of sup-
porters who value Planned Parenthood as a trusted place that women and families rely on for the critical services and tools needed to plan a healthy future.” Community members convene for the Fall Benefit, one of two annual events that celebrate the work of this essential organization. Over 41,000 local residents received highquality care at Planned Parenthood’s four local health centers and multiple satellite locations this past
year. More than 95% of the health care services are preventive, including lifesaving cancer screenings, all FDA-approved methods of birth control, annual exams, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections and much more. The event will take place on Sunday, September 30th at 5:30pm at a local Pasadena restaurant. For more information or to purchase tickets by phone, please contact Merideth at (626) 794-5737 ext. 102.
Attorney Files Another Complaint Against Pasadena Officer Okamoto Attorney Michael Kraut has sent another complaint to Chief Sanchez of Pasadena Police Department after the initial compalint filed April 5, 2012. “This complaint and supporting documentation is solid proof of the perjury committed by Okamoto during the trial and the false statements made to Judge Terry Schwartz of the Pasadena Superior Court during pretiral proceedings as well
as in the trial.” Kraut says in an email to this newspaper. The formal complaint, dated Sept. 12, makes allegations that Officer Okamoto was involved in perjury and Massiah violations in the matter of People v. Delossantos and Damas matter, Case # GA079201. Attorney Kraut states they have “obtained updated statements” from Alexander Andres, the DJ who was working at Wokcano
the night of the incident. The 57-page document obtained by this newspaper icludes court transcripts and alleges that Okamoto failed to turn over several audio recordings of eyewitness interviews. Kraut maintains this evidence was “ both relevant and exculpatory.” The attorney also states that Okamoto pressred witnesses to change statements, according to the new complaint.

into his death by both the FBI and the Officer Independent Review Group. “The chief is a bad apple, and it's been time to get him out of there,” said Green. “If you take the chief out, people will know that you can't come here thinking you can get away with something … and everybody's going to pat you on the back. If we don't do something, nobody's going to be safe walking up and down these streets.” The awards dinner at the Hilton honored several people, including City Attorney Michele Beal Bagneris who received the President's Award. In an email announcement sent out by McDade family attorney Caree Harper, Bagneris was identified as one of the 12 defense attorneys representing the two Pasadena officers “who killed Kendrec McDade and left him handcuffed on ground and crying out in agony.” In the email Harper said: “They're currently in litigation against the city of Pasadena with the City Attorney representing the city - the timing couldn't be more horrible.” According to Joe Brown, president of the NAACP Pasadena chapter, the honorees had been selected over nine months ago on rigorous criteria, such as being recommended by members of the community and demonstrat-
ing significant contributions toward improving civil rights and race relations. The protest included nearly 30 participants who assembled on the sidewalk outside the Pasadena Hilton, holding up signs and calling out to drivers to “Honk for justice!” The demonstration was peaceful for the most part, except for a minor incident when Harper attempted to crash the award ceremony taking place inside the hotel. But hotel security prevented her from entering the lobby. “I think this is a slap in the face to my grandbaby,” said Alfred Nathaniel McDade, the grandfather of the slain teen. “They're giving out awards when they should be thinking about how the family feels about all this ... about the loss of the life of my grandbaby.” When asked how he felt about the progress into the investigation of his grandson’s death, he said, “I'm not satisfied; if the truth be known (the investigation) is just going along with the police chief, and whatever he has to say. And I don't like it.” However, there was a difference in opinion in the African-American community toward protesting the NAACP at the awards dinner.

newspaper, Cameron Turner said, “I commend the Pasadena NAACP for shrugging off criticism from an L.A. civil rights group and moving forward with plans to recognize Pasadena Police Chief Philip Sanchez and Pasadena City Attorney Michele Bagneris at tonight's 27th Ruby McKnight Williams Awards Dinner.” The civil rights group Turner spoke of in his column was Los Angeles-based Project Islamic HOPE, whose director, Najee Ali, organized the protest against the awards dinner. Turner also wrote in his column that the NAACP was right to honor the chief and city attorney “because, like all of the individuals being saluted this evening, Sanchez (who will serve as emcee) and Bagneris (who will receive the President's Award) have distinguished themselves through honorable service to our community - including the response to the McDade tragedy.” But the issue of deserved distinction was not the case in point, according to Reverend Dr. Lewis E. Logan II, who showed his support at the demonstration. He said the awards dinner showed a lack of response to the family’s need for justice and healing. “There's still a lot of hurt - the wound is still fresh,” said Logan, co-founder of Ruach Christian Community Fellowship. “And I think there's a sense of betrayal because the NAACP, which is suppose to protect those in the community who are being brutalized, is awarding the very entity that has perpetrated the brutality.” As of Sept. 14, McDade’s mother, Anya Slaughter, has dropped three Pasadena police officials from her civil-rights lawsuit against the city. The complaint filed on behalf of Slaughter dismisses Police Chief Phillip Sanchez, Lt. Phlunte Riddle and Det. Keith Gomez. The previous complaint, filed by Harper on behalf of McDade’s parents, named the city, Sanchez, Riddle, Gomez, Griffin and Newlen. Harper no longer represents Slaughter, but continues to represent the father, Kenneth McDade. McDade was shot and killed on Mar. 24 by two Pasadena police officers responding to a bogus 911 call for armed robbery. Officers said they thought McDade was reaching for a gun in his waistband to fire at them, but he was found to be unarmed.

On Sunday, September 9, the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center (RBAC) welcomed US Olympian, Cullen Jones. Jones, who almost drowned as a young child, became an advocate for teaching young children to swim which he sees as the best form of teaching water safety. As an accomplished athlete, he also counsels young people to strive for excellence in all that they do. Jones addressed over 80 swim team members and numerous parents, encouraging everyone to stay involved with the sport of swimming and to accomplish their goals. “The team chanted ‘USA, USA, USA’ as he approached. He brought his medals, wearing them around his neck, and the Olympic spirit to our deck. It is so
thrilling and motivating for these swimmers to be in the presence of a worldclass athlete,” stated Leah McCrary, RBAC Swim Team parent. In 2008 at the Beijing Olympics, Jones became the second African-American in history to win an Olympic Gold medal in swimming when he assisted his relay team of Lezak, Phelps and Weber-Gale to win Gold over the French in the 4x100 Men’s Freestyle Relay. “We had a great day with Cullen Jones,” commented Jeff Julian, RBAC Head Coach, Swim. “He is very approachable and so relaxed when he is in the pool environment. But he makes it clear that excellence is achieved and Olympic medals are won only with determination and discipline.”
The multi-faceted Jay Cohen, who has served as Santa Anita’s Bugler since Dec. 26, 1987, will continue his 25-year march at The Great Race Place when it opens for its 24-day Autumn Meet on Sept. 28. A Cherry Hill, New Jersey native, Cohen approaches his job with the enthusiasm of a teenager, working the grandstand between races, performing Happy Birthday songs, telling jokes and regaling fans of all ages with an array of magic tricks—all in addition to his primary obligation, which is to welcome the horses and jockeys onto
the track for each race with the Call to the Post. “Growing up and even out of college, I’d have never in a million years guessed that I’d be celebrating my 25th anniversary working at a racetrack, let alone a place like Santa Anita,” said Cohen. “When I got out of school, I got a job teaching and that’s what I thought I’d be doing for the rest of my life, teaching and playing music.” How did Cohen, 56, first find his way to Santa Anita? “I was teaching music in the public schools and my wife was working for RCA.
After a trip to Southern California, we kept saying how much we would like to move there. She checked the job openings at RCA and found an opening at NBC (Burbank) and she got the job. “When we transferred here I wanted to try to be a full-time musician. I was able to get work in two weeks and I picked up a church gig in Glendale. Thanks to a guy named Keith Snell, I found out there was an opening at Santa Anita for a bugler. “After 25 years, I guess you could say I’ve just about got it figured out, but everyday is still an adventure for me. I love interacting with the people and I love having an opportunity to make them laugh. I get a kick out of seeing them enjoying themselves and enjoying what for many of them is an unforgettable day.” In addition to Santa Anita, Cohen also serves as the track bugler at Hollywood Park and Fairplex Park. “Before I started working at Santa Anita, I never saw a horse race except on television. I never went to the track,” Cohen said.
As a result of the connections and friendships he’s cultivated at the racetrack, Cohen has also found regular work in a variety of settings. “I play at over 1,000 birthdays a year and at lot of parties for (horse) owners, where I do everything from welcoming guests to entertaining them with songs, magic, and stand-up comedy. I also work corporate functions around town like the LA Sports Council dinner, the Jimmy Stewart Marathon and the California 500. I’ve also been fortunate enough to do about 40 movies and television shows,” Cohen added. As the irrepressible bugler/comic/magician closes in on his 25,000th Call to the Post at Santa Anita, Cohen is eagerly awaiting the twoday Breeders’ Cup World Championships on Nov. 2 & 3. “People come from all over the world for the Breeders’ Cup. I’ve now learned over 65 national anthems, so hopefully, I’ll have something at the ready for everyone.”
