An opening night reception and banquet on Friday kicked off a weekend of discussions and events for the U.S.-China Peoples Friendship Association Western Regional Conference at the Hilton Los Angeles in San Gabriel. The Oct. 26-28 conference sought to celebrate U.S.China relations by reflecting on the past and looking at the present. “Our objective is to reflect on, enhance and to maintain the positive relationship that exists between the people of the U.S. and China,” said conference cochair Jason J. Lee, highlighting the importance of the history and culture shared by both American and Chinese dignitaries, educators, and authors through a weekend of seminars. Much of the opening night remarks had to do with amending past relations with Chinese Americans. For many at the dinner, President Nixon’s visit to China

By Terry Miller There’s no doubt about it, the sell-out performance at the new Performing Arts Center Saturday was one for the record books. Not only was it the inaugural

gala black tie event at the new $20 Million Arcadia High Performing Arts Center but it was also a first for several students from the high school’s orchestra to perform on stage with one of the top names in the music

Dorothy's Place Oooops

By Dorothy Denne I share with you, from my e-mail collections, proof that sometimes announcements and signs wind up not saying exactly what the originator meant to say. Well, maybe. Take for example these church bulletin bloopers: “The cost for attending the Fasting and Prayer conference includes meals.” “Miss Charlene Mason sang ‘I Shall Not Pass This Way Again,’ giving obvious pleasure to the congregation.” “Ladies Bible Study will be held Thursday morning at 10. All ladies are invited to lunch in Fel-

lowship Hall after the B.S. is done.” “The Low Self-Esteem Support Group meets Thursday at 7 p.m. Please use the back door.” “During the absence of our pastor, we enjoyed the rare privilege of hearing a good sermon supplied by the Rev. J.F. Stubbs.” Or, what about these posted signs: In a medical building: Toilet out of order. Please use floor below. *In a laundromat: Automatic washing machines--Please remove all your clothes when the light goes out. *In a department store: Bargain basement upstairs *In an office: After tea break staff should empty the teapot and stand upside on the draining board. *Outside a secondhand shop: We exchange

anything--Bicycles, Washing machines, etc. Why not bring your wife along and get a wonderful bargain. Notice in a health food shop window: Closed Due To Illness *At a conference: For anyone who has children and doesn’t know it, there is day care on the 1st floor. *At a safari park: Elephants please stay in your car. *Notice in a farmer’s field: The farmer allows walkers to cross the field for free but the bull charges. Message on a leaflet: If you cannot read, this leaflet will tell you how to get lessons. *On a repair shop door: We can repair anything. (Please knock hard on the door -- the bell doesn’t work)

Stephen R. Covey Inspired a Nation with His Best Seller ‘Seven Habits of Highly Effective People’ By Harry Sneider It was with great sadness that we heard that Stephen R. Covey whose books sold in the millions of copies died recently. He had a major impact on my life. Stephen, Mitt Romney, and Arcadia’s Larry and Ginger Daines have something in common with me. They love God and Christ. Stephen wrote a very beautiful handwritten letter that I want to share with you that shows you the depth of his character and his love of wanting to help others. October 28, 1995 Dear Harry & Sarah, It’s marvelous to hear about your contributions, commitments and spirit. I so admire such efforts to bless people’s lives – not just for time but for eternity. God bless you to continue to make a difference and also to bless your children. I hope our paths cross sometime. I wish you were my trainer. John 15:1-10. With love & admiration, Stephen R. Covey Our nation is in a time of great decisions. We have a chance to nominate a president with character and values. In Stephen Covey’s books he talked about how to become an effective leader in all walks of life, this included my work as a professional fitness and sports trainer, coach, and motivator. These principles were shared with world leaders, even the President of the United States and

millions of people looking to become strong leaders today and in the world tomorrow. Let me list these principles: 1. Be Proactive 2. Begin With The End In Mind. 3. Put First Things First 4. Think Win/Win 5. Seek First to Understand, Then To Be Understood 6. Synergize 7. Sharpen the Saw. You may find Stephen’s books on Amazon.com. They are well worth reading as well as implementing these principles in your daily life. Character is something that is very important for our nation to survive. As Teddy Roosevelt said, “Above body and mind stands character”. It’s important to exercise and to stay disciplined in these challenging times. Even ten to fifteen minutes of walking daily, avoiding junk

food, reading spiritual material, talking positively, being happy, helping others, and being God centered, can lift you as well as your nation. When you vote Tuesday, think what is best for our great country. You have that choice. What will you do? My prayer is that you will choose the right candidate for the office of the President of the United States of America. Harry and Sarah Sneider have lived in Arcadia for 35 years with their family. They are professional fitness and sports trainers, have been recognized by the governor of California, and have achieved prominence in the world of athletics, fitness, and motivation. You can reach them at 626-355-8964 or harrysneider@earthlink.net.

Send your letters to tmiller@beaconmedianews.com Dear Editor: I firmly believe that this plan to add taxes on "sweetened beverages" is insidious, insulting and injurious to all residents and local businesses. It's a glaringly ill-conceived idea designed by Nanny Governors: our elected Mayor and City Council members. Yesterday, I visited our local Smart & Final Store. I priced 36 sodas with the proposed added "H" tax: $3.42 additional tax. My grandchildren, who are allergic to cows' milk, drink a chocolate-flavored soya drink each day. Tax on that? EIGHT CENTS ADDITIONAL per carton. And, they also like agua de jamaica, horchata, etc., which would also have added tax. If "H" passes, I, along with so many other El

Monteans will purchase any and all "sweetened beverages" elsewhere. "H" really doesn't stand for Health. It sounds more like "Horrible, Halloween-like and downright Harmful" to us the public and businesses. Our city electeds squandered $100,000+ on a proposition that is totally absurd. So much for representative government! As for me, our family, our friends, our relatives and our neighbors? We are all voting NO ON H and urge every one else to do the same. Remember, folks, Your Vote Is Your Voice-Su Voto Es Su Voz. Respectfully, David Stephen Siegrist California Senior Assemblyman, 49th Assembly District

Dear Editor: Typically, a faculty union will offer a vote of “no confidence” in the leadership in order to express disdain as to how the campus is being operated by a President or a Board of Trustee member. Here, at Citrus College, the CCFA would like to trail-blaze in a different, more positive direction. In light of the tremendous amount of negative publicity that the Board of Trustees has generated concerning the handling of Dr. Perri’s contract revision, the Citrus College Faculty Association Representative Council last Wednesday approved unanimously the following: “Resolved: that the Citrus College Faculty Association Representative Council would like to offer

a Vote of Confidence for Dr. Geraldine Perri.” It is our hope that the general community will see that there is a tremendous amount of good things that are happening on this campus and that Dr. Perri is at the forefront in leading the way. While we may not agree with the administration 100% of the time on all issues, we, the faculty association leadership and council, are fully appreciative of her efforts, her strength as well as her grace and dignity in such trying economic and political times.

Governor Brown Issues Statement on Death of CAL FIRE Battalion Chief Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today issued the follwing statement regarding the death of California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) Battalion Chief Rob Van Wormer: “It is with great sadness that Anne and I learned CAL FIRE Battalion Chief Rob Van Wormer has passed away.

A Guatemalan woman wanted for her alleged role in the murder of a former top security advisor to the Guatemalan government was handed over to authorities in Guatemala City Tuesday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), capping a two-year effort by her native country to secure her capture and return. Maria Del Rosario Melgar Martinez, aka Mary Ro, 50, was repatriated to Guatemala on board a charter flight coordinated by ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) Air Operations (IAO) Unit. Upon arrival, ERO officers turned Melgar Martinez over to Guatemalan law enforcement personnel. Melgar is wanted in Guatemala for her alleged complicity in the murder four years ago of Victor Jose

The Doozies

Rivera Azuaje, who served as a high-level advisor to Guatemala’s Department of Interior during several administrations. Melgar, who worked as Rivera’s personal assistant, was with him the night of April 7, 2008, when he was fatally shot. According to the Guatemalan arrest warrant, which charges Melgar with murder and illicit association, the two were riding together in a vehicle when they were both struck by gunfire. The arrest warrant states that several witness in the preliminary trial of the accused triggerman implicated Melgar, alleging she helped Rivera’s killer locate and track him. The charging document claims Melgar received money from Guatemalan drug traffickers for her cooperation. An ICE ERO officer, assisted by personnel from the

U.S. Marshals Service Pacific Southwest Regional Task Force, arrested Melgar Aug. 3 at the federal building in downtown Los Angeles when she arrived for an interview related to her application for permanent residence. Unbeknownst to Melgar, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) had denied her benefit application after being alerted by ICE about the outstanding Guatemalan warrant. Following her arrest, ICE placed Melgar in removal proceedings. Earlier this month, an immigration judge granted Melgar voluntary departure to Guatemala under safeguards, paving the way for Tuesday’s repatriation. “Those who seek to escape responsibility for their actions by fleeing to the United States will find no sanctuary in our communities,” said

Timothy S. Robbins, field office director for ERO Los Angeles. “As this case makes clear, ICE is working closely with its foreign counterparts to promote public safety and hold suspected criminals accountable – no matter where they commit their crimes.” ERO Los Angeles received substantial assistance with the case from the ICE Assistant Attaché Guatemala. Since Oct. 1, 2009, ERO has removed more than 500 foreign fugitives from the United States who were being sought in their native countries for serious crimes, including kidnapping, rape and murder. ERO works with ICE’s Office of International Affairs, foreign consular offices in the United States, and Interpol to identify foreign fugitives illegally present in the country.

Temple City Receives $598,000 in Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Funds With the City of Temple City ramping up for its Las Tunas Drive streetscape redesign, more than $1 million in incoming grant funds will support efforts to enhance traffic safety and promote alternative transportation along the corridor. Earlier this week, the City received $598,000 in federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funds to initiate enhancements at seven signalized intersections along Las Tunas Drive. The City was one of 221 municipalities statewide selected in a competitive application process to receive grant awards that totaled more than $111 million. The City’s submitted project called for upgrades at identified high-accident crossings—Sultana, Loma, Encinita, Alessandro, Oak, Cloverly and Primrose avenues. Between 2006 and 2011, these locations saw a combined 93 automobile collisions—almost half resulting in injuries, of which ten involved pedestrians and one led to a fatality. The HSIP grant will enable the City to install traffic signals with improved safety features, including support poles and mast arms of a less

obstructive design; high-visibility LED lights; and countdowns alerting pedestrians of how much time they have to cross safely. Along with these signalization upgrades, new bike lanes will make Las Tunas Drive a safer thoroughfare for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists alike. In September, the City received $479,000 in state Bicycle Transportation Account (BTA) funds to support its Bicycle Master Plan implementation. The City’s project was one of 39 successful applications chosen among 111 submissions. Over the next three years, the BTA funds will support the construction of 12.6 miles of bikeways along nine Temple City streets—including Las Tunas Drive; El Monte, Golden West, Longden, Lemon and Oak avenues; Arden Drive; and Freer and Olive streets. The funds will also add 60 marked bicycle storage facilities at key locations across town including commercial centers, parks, government buildings and transit stops. With surrounding cities and the County also initiating bicycle improvements—and Temple City’s own Rosemead Boulevard which will

see the city’s first bike lanes in 2014 as part of the Rosemead Boulevard Enhancement Project—these added cycling amenities will ultimately lead to broader regional connectivity by enabling local access to such out-of-town destinations as the Sierra Madre Villa Metro Gold Line Station, as well as the Eaton Canyon Wash and Rio Hondo bike paths. “As the City begins the Las Tunas Drive project, these grants will allow the community to achieve a comprehensive and multimodal streetscape redesign that keeps everybody moving safely,” said Mayor Vincent Yu. To see how these improvements and more will transform Las Tunas from its current thoroughfare status to a downtown district, attend the Las Tunas Drive Streetscape Project community meetings—the first tentatively scheduled for Nov. 14, 7 p.m. at Live Oak Park Community Center. The project’s design phase is underway, with groundbreaking expected for 2014. For more information, contact the City Manager’s Office at (626) 285-2171.

Stroke and Osteoporosis Screenings Coming to Arcadia Residents living in and around the Arcadia, California community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture. Arcadia Elks Lodge Post # 2025 will host Life Line Screening on 12/5/2012. The site is located at 27 West Huntington Drive in Arcadia. Richard Bennet from Woodland Hills, CA, participated in a Life Line Screening event in March 2008 and learned he had an abdominal aortic aneurysm. He writes, “I feel as though Life Line Screening saved my life and can’t

thank you enough!” Four key points every person needs to know: Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability, 80% of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke, Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke, Screenings are fast, noninvasive, painless, affordable and convenient Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm,

abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease. A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women. Packages start at $149. All five screenings take 6090 minutes to complete. For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, call 1-877237-1287 or visit our website at www.lifelinescreening. com. Pre-registration is required.

The unknown musicians, who initially contacted the Times in a group letter, said that “every dollar and gig counts.” Cal Phil said, in response, “the orchestra said it has met with the union and that together, amicably they put a payment plan in place." The California Philharmonic is an institution in Southern California and has played a vital role in the local economy for 18 years. Over almost two decades, more than 650,000 people have attended Cal Phil concerts in Arcadia and contributed about $30 million to the economy of Los Angeles County from its multiple venues. Cal Phil is a non-profit charitable organization that heavily relies on local support. However, according to Maestro Victor Vener, 75% of their annual budget comes from ticket sales.

After 16 years at the Arboretum, Cal Phil was forced to move to a new venue last summer, and was required to make substantial investments to facilitate the exciting albeit expensive transition to the Santa Anita Race Track. Like anyone else, this put a strain on Cal Phil's budget and finances. However, Cal Phil, its extraordinary musicians and its valued vendors are working together to make sure payments will be made. California Philharmonic Orchestra Committee Chair, Francisco Castillo publicly proclaims the orchestra’s position on the issue which clearly is different from that suggested to the Los Angeles Times by some unidentified individuals: “We, the musicians of the California Philharmonic support our orchestra.It is very important to all of us, the community and the Los Angeles music family to see that the California Philharmonic succeeds and to be able to return to be a stellar organization in Southern California for many years to come.We are hoping that

the economy turns around and that the Cal Phil will continue to do everything possible to follow through with their commitment to the musicians, the community and all our supporters. At this time, the Cal Phil management is working with Local 47, the Orchestra Committee and the Musicians Union funds, to become current with all the late payments due to the musicians. Cal Phil is also working with all our incredible and understanding vendors to bring a positive solution to the economic problems of the organization.In the organization's defense, Cal Phil has been making payments to the musicians and others as funds have become available. We feel positive that this is just a temporary setback. We feel, after seeing the tremendous support from the community that attended our concerts at the Santa Anita Race Track and at Disney Hall this last summer, which the future is going to be good. We just have to give it a chance to grow and we stand behind our orchestra.”

In an interview with Maestro Victor Vener on Tuesday, Beacon Media learned that a financial growing pain of moving to a new venue is merely a temporary issue. “Cal Phil is here to stay,” Vener said. He added that he and the orchestra’s musicians are committed to providing

the community of Arcadia and greater Pasadena world class music. Vener also reiterrated his commitment to the musicians and all connected to the extended family that is Cal Phil. Vener assured Beacon that the musicians will be paid. Since the ticket sales to Cal Phil are a primary

Pasadena Chamber Board of Directors’ Positions on Measures and Propositions on Nov. 6 Ballot At successive meetings over the course of the past two months, the Board of Directors of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce deliberated on many of the propositions that appear on the November 6th ballot. They took positions on some measures while deciding not to consider others. When it took a position, the Board had a choice to support, oppose or take no position. The Chamber Board deliberated and voted to express its opinion on the following measures and propositions: Los Angeles County measures Measure J (sales tax extension for transportation): Locally, the Pasadena Chamber Board chose to support Measure J, the extension of the Los Angeles County sales tax to support local transportation projects. While supporting the measure, which would extend the half cent sales tax increase through 2069, the Board recognized that implementation of local transportation projects can be accelerated by bonding against this dedicated revenue source. The Board did express a very strong preference that the funds be spent on transit projects, such as the Gold Line extension to Claremont, rather than highway and road construction. “The Board communicated a clear desire to seek 21st century solutions to traffic congestion and goods movement issues,” said Chamber CEO Paul Little. The Board did not consider Measure A, an advisory vote on whether to change selection of the county assessor from elected to appointed, or Measure B which would require adult film actors to wear condoms. State Propositions Proposition 30 (temporary tax increases to fund education and public safety): The Chamber Board of Directors took no position on Proposition 30. The Board did not want to oppose Proposition 30 because the members understand that education funding in California is at critically low levels and if Proposition 30 does not pass drastic cuts to K-14 education could occur. However, the Board is very uncomfortable with band-aid measures to temporarily prop up a state budget that fails to adequately address the fiscal needs of the state. “The Board of Directors of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce would like to see

the governor and state legislature work together to craft a comprehensive revenue and expenditure plan for California that includes an overhaul of our tax structure as well as spending limits and a structurally balanced budget that does not depend on accounting tricks and imagined revenue sources,” according to Mr. Little. “We would also like to see Governor Brown and the State Legislature work together now to deal with California’s fiscal emergency and adequately fund our public school and university system, as well as those other essential functions we rely on from our state government.” Proposition 31( two year state budget): The Chamber Board voted to support Proposition 31 which provides for a two-year budget cycle for the State of California and also provides some opportunities for local relief from expenditures required by state legislation. The measure prevents the State Legislature from enacting anything during the interim period that costs more than $25 million unless offsetting revenues or spending cuts are identified. “Going to a two year budget cycle will give taxpayers and businesses some measure of stability as taxes, fees and costs from the state would be fixed for those two years,” Mr. Little said. “Prohibiting additional expenditures of more than $25 million will help rein in unfettered spending at the state level.” Proposition 32 (prohibits automatic payroll deductions to support political activities): The Board could not come to a consensus on Proposition 32 and took no position. “Some Board members expressed the opinion that the measure unfairly targets labor unions, as corporations do not deduct from employee wages to support political expenditures,” according to Mr. Little. “Others felt that union, especially public employee unions, have too much influence in state government decision-making and passage of Proposition 32 would have a positive result by diminishing that influence.” Proposition 33 (auto insurance portability of discounts): The Pasadena Chamber Board took no position on Proposition 33. While some Chamber Board members expressed the opinion that it could lower auto insurance rates for companies and individuals by allowing

insurance companies to set rates based on discounts that may have been earned with a competing carrier, others were concerned that Proposition 22 was bankrolled by one individual auto insurance company owner, and may be in the best interest of that one company but not competing companies or customers. Proposition 37 (labeling of genetically engineered foods): The Board took no position on Proposition 37 which would require labeling of some genetically engineered foods. The Board did not find that the Proposition would have a material impact on our local economy or our membership. Proposition 38 (income tax increase to fund K-12 education): The Board took no position on Proposition 38. While education is clearly facing a funding crisis, and Proposition 38 would fund schools, the Board felt that public education would be better served by a complete overhaul of revenue and expenditures by the state. “The band-aid approach to shoring up our K-12 public education system proposed by Proposition 38 would not address the needs of the entire state and would merely push the hard work of budget and tax reform into the future,” according to Mr. Little. “Because Proposition 30 or Proposition 38 would supersede the other (if both pass, whichever passes with the highest margin is implemented) there was strong concern that only K-12 education and early childhood education is funded by Proposition 38. Concern was also raised about adding another level of bureaucracy to implement Proposition 38 and a complete lack of accountability for expenditures.” Proposition 39 ( multistate corporate taxes): The Board of Directors voted to oppose Proposition 39 which would require multi-state corporations doing business in California to pay taxes on the business done in California. (Currently, corporations have the opportunity to choose whether to pay California taxes or taxes in another state where they are doing business.) “While the increased revenue anticipated would be welcome by the state government, the Chamber Board felt this is not an appropriate time to make California even less friendly to corporations that might be considering doing business here, or that already do business here and

may consider moving out of state completely,” Mr. Little said. The Chamber Board did not consider Proposition 34 (Death Penalty), Proposition 35 (Human Trafficking), Proposition 36 (Three Strikes Law) or Proposition 40 (Redistricting) as these would not impact Pasadena Chamber members or our local economy. The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors does not endorse individual candidates for office. The Board of Directors also recognizes that opinions vary widely among Pasadena Chamber membership on the measures and propositions. The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and Civic Association is a professional business organization. Since the earliest days of Pasadena, the Chamber has played a major role in the development of this internationally renowned city. Since 1888, when the organization was founded as the Board of Trade, the Chamber’s primary purpose has been the enhancement of both the business climate and the quality of life in Pasadena.

Mt. Sierra College VP Says State is Overcharging Students The California agency charged with protecting students enrolled in forprofit schools and colleges is overcharging students state-mandated fees by up to 2 ½ times, according to an email sent out by Mt. Sierra College Vice President, John Davis on Thursday. The agency BPPE (Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education) mandated fees for students attending for-profit schools to be paid to the state. The intended purpose is to protect students by having a fund available in the event a school was to go out of business. The fund would

be drawn upon to pay for students remaining education. When a student enrolls in a college they are required to pay a STRF (Student Tuition Recovery Fund) fee for all four years tuition. However, when a student takes the summer off and enrolls in the fall term for the second year they are required to again pay the STRF fee for the remaining three years of tuition. If the student takes the summer off the follow year they pay STRF fee for the remaining two years, etc. Doing the math, students who take summers off, end up paying STRF

fees for 10 years of tuition when they only actually attend and pay tuition for four years. Additionally, whenever a student changes his or her major the state again charges STRF fees for the remaining tuition until graduation. This is in addition to the STRF fees required when the student takes a summer off. The state agency BPPE requires the STUDENTS must pay these STRF fees – the college or institution is not permitted to pay STRF fees for the students. This does not help students who are already struggling to make ends meet.

Chinese Americans as friends in the United States of America,” Eng said. “And let me tell you that that relationship is still developing.” Eng’s wife, Congresswoman Judy Chu for California’s 32nd District, also provided sobering remarks on the first day of the conference. She offered a history lesson on the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, which, according to Chu, prevented Chinese immigrants from becoming naturalized citizens, thus making Chinese “scapegoats for the Americans here.” Reminding her listeners that Americans of all backgrounds have fought long and hard to create a nation of tolerance, the congresswoman said, “It was the relationship between the U.S. and China that actually got that act repealed in the first place. So, we must know that we have to value that relationship.” Keeping with the topic of American moral courage, Congresswoman Chu explained how the U.S. had reached across the ocean to help a war-battered China during World War II. Commanded by General Claire Lee Chennault, the Flying Tigers’ unofficial joint military operation with the Chinese was organized to help the Chinese in their fight against the Japanese invasion. “That was the only way to do it, because the U.S. was not officially at war with Japan,” said the congress-

woman. “There were many who volunteered for the fighting, including Chinese Americans... So, I am reminded how strong our relationship is between the U.S. and China, and of the courage of so many who fought in that particular war and flew with the Flying Tigers.” The chairman of the Flying Tigers Historical Association, Major General James T. Whitehead, Jr., USAF (Retired), said that by “Honoring past friendships and strengthening future people-to-people relationships” members of the Friendship Association have adapted the very principles and spirit demonstrated by the Flying Tigers in World War II. Keynote speakers at the conference included Ms. Li Xiaolin, President of the Chinese Peoples Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries; Qui Shaofang, Consul General of The People’s Republic of China to Los Angeles; and Nell Calloway, the granddaughter of The Flying Tigers Commander, General Claire Lee Chennault.

A Noise Within Brings Us Shaw’s “The Doctor’s Dilemma” By Fran Syverson If you, as a doctor, must choose between two lives, only one of which you might probably save, how would you make the choice? By what yardstick would you convince yourself that one of the people is more worthy to continue to live than the other? age?...station in life?...personal relationship to you? That, then, is “The Doctor’s Dilemma,” now playing at Pasadena’s newly refurbished theater, A Noise Within. George Bernard Shaw must have reveled in penning this play, considering his lifelong contentiousness and cynicism toward medical men and their practices. Dr. Colenso Ridgeon and his contemporaries personify the doctors of his era, each with a fanatical insistence that his theory about disease was the only plausible one. Thus there is the medical issue, but Dr. Ridgeon’s dilemma also comes sharply into focus as a moral one when Jennifer Dubedat seeks him out to treat her talented, beloved artist husband. She feels his life must be saved, for he contributes so much to society with his sketches. Deborah Strang as Emmy, the housekeeper, repeatedly insists that the doctor see the woman. He hesitates. Since he has limited resources, he would have to choose between this man and his friend, Dr. Blenkinsop, also in dire need of treatment. Who is he to

make such a decision? While the drama focuses on the dilemma, it also brings romance and humor to entertain us. As befits Shaw, Ridgeon’s colleagues spend the first act with a plethora of verbiage as each touts his own cure (albeit experimental) as well as the moral dilemmas they all face. Freddy Douglas and Robertson Dean exude confidence in their roles as leaders in the medical profession—such as it was early in the Twentieth Century. Apollo Dukakis lends a distinguished air to Sir Patrick Cullen, an older physician, but one still confident of his skills. David LM McIntyre is the hapless Dr. Blenkinsop. Geoff Elliott as the conflicted Dr. Ridgeon who holds people’s lives in his hands, nonetheless is still vulnerable to human biases and emotions. They are all entranced by Jennifer, exquisite in gorgeous gowns, and charmingly and forcefully played by Jules Willcox. Hoping to evaluate Louis Dubedat’s case and need, Ridgeon invites the young couple and the doctors to a dinner party. They find they cannot deny Jennifer’s pleadings. Later we visit Dubedat’s studio, where the imagery of an artist’s attic is strikingly created in a set by Susan Gratch. As the doctors arrive, the dashing Jason Dechert carries on with his sketching, but also attempts brazenly to ask for

loans, cavalierly expecting the medics to ignore all his past failings in matters of women and money. Is this scoundrel—talented though he may be—worthy of being the one to be treated? That some of the philosophical and ethical questions about medical care remain unsolved to this day, a century after Shaw wrote the play, will not go unnoticed by thoughtful theatergoers. Kelly Ehlert and Rafael Goldstein round out the cast of superb repertory players in Shaw’s rarely performed indictment of medical practices of his time. Damaso Rodriguez skillfully directs. “The Doctor’s Dilemma” will continue at A Noise Within through Nov. 25. Curtain times are 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2; Thursday, Nov. 8 & Friday, Nov. 9. Saturday performances are Nov. 17 at 2 & 8 p.m., and Nov. 24 at 8 p.m. Sundays are Nov. 11 at 2 & 7 p.m. and Nov. 25 at 2 p.m. Tickets range from $40-$52. Contact the box office in person, via phone at 626-356-3100, or online at www.anoisewithin.org for updated pricing and seating availability. A Noise Within is located at 3352 E. Foothill Blvd., Pasadena. Free parking is available in the Metro station which can be accessed off Halstead or from the Sierra Madre Villa off ramp of the 210 Foothill Freeway.

Is Your Furnace Ready for Winter? SoCalGas Offers Home-Heating Safety Tips

As temperatures cool down, Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) is advising customers to inspect their home-heating appliances and perform any needed maintenance necessary to avoid any health or safety hazards. “Now is the time to perform maintenance on your home-heating appliances to check that they can be operated safely and efficiently, “said Jimmie Cho, vice president of field services for SoCalGas. “Customers are beginning to turn on their furnaces for the first time in months. Heating appliances should be serviced annually to keep them operating safely and efficiently. A licensed heating contractor or SoCalGas can provide this service for you.” Failure to perform annual maintenance on gas appliances may result in exposure to carbon monoxide, which can cause nausea, drowsiness, flu-like symptoms, and even death. Since home heating typically accounts for more than half of the monthly winter gas bill, the best way to keep bills

lower is to get gas appliances serviced, Cho said. SoCalGas offers these tips for a safe, warm, and energy-efficient winter: Have natural gas furnaces checked at least once a year by a licensed heating contractor or SoCalGas. Vacuum and clean regularly in and around the furnace, particularly around the burner compartment to prevent a build-up of dust and lint. Never store items in, on or around the appliance that can obstruct airflow. Most forced-air units have a filter that cleans the air before heating and circulating it throughout the home. Check furnace filters every month during the heating season and clean or replace the filter when necessary. When installing a new or cleaned furnace filter, be sure to re-install the front panel door of the furnace properly so it fits snugly; never operate the furnace without the frontpanel door properly in place because doing so may create the risk of carbon monoxide

poisoning. Check the appearance of the flame. If the flame is yellow, large and unsteady, the furnace needs to be inspected immediately by a licensed heating contractor or SoCalGas to have the condition corrected. Using an unvented gas heater in your home is dangerous and a violation of the California Health and Safety Code. Never use your oven, range or outdoor barbecue to heat your home because these appliances are not designed for this purpose. While maintaining natural gas appliances is always the homeowner’s responsibility, at a customer’s request, SoCalGas can perform free appliance safety checks. To schedule an appointment, go to socalgas.com (search “SCHEDULE APPOINTMENT”) or call SoCalGas at (800) 427-2200 or (800) 3424545 in Spanish. For more information on furnace safety, visit SoCalGas’ website at socalgas.com (search “FURNACE SAFETY”).

Martial Arts Star Featured at Arcadia AAUW Meeting Martial arts champion, Hollywood actress, and stunt woman – all of these titles belong to Jing Li, a martial arts instructor at Washu Action Star Academy in Temple City. The Arcadia Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) is delighted to have Jing Li present a program at its meeting on Monday, November 12. Branch members and their guests will learn about washu, an exhibition and full-contact sport, and they will also learn what a fine actress Jing Li is when they

view the documentary film “Autumn Gem” in which Jing Li has a starring role. The film “Autumn Gem” revolves around Qiu Jin, a young Chinese woman who lived in the late 19th Century under the repressive government of the last dynasty in China. In challenging the government, she became a nationalist leader and later was martyred. She was also a women’s rights activist who fought for women’s education and against arranged marriages and foot binding. Martial arts skill plays an important part

in the film. The film gives Ling Ji’s AAUW audience an opportunity to see her martial arts skills in action in film if not in person. Arcadia AAUW meets in the Church of Good Shepherd’s Jordan Hall, 400 W. Duarte Rd. (SW corner of Duarte Rd. and Holly Ave.), Arcadia. The meeting is open to the public at no charge, and ample parking is available. All are invited to come for socializing and refreshments at 6:30 p.m. Jing Li’s presentation and the film “Autumn Gem” will follow at 7:00 p.m.

Champagne Reception for the Unveiling of Arcadia's Favorite Daughter – Miss Anita Baldwin the Lady of Legion Permanent Exhibit Grand Opening, Opening Reception and Adult Lectures; November 17, program begins at 2:00 p.m. Join us at the exciting unveiling of a life-like figure and grand opening of the museum’s new permanent exhibit on Anita M. Baldwin, daughter of Elias Jackson “Lucky” Baldwin. This exhibit will remember this most elegant, gracious and dedicated woman and her lifetime

accomplishments. Speakers will include Mitchell Hearns Bishop, curator at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Sandy Snider, former curator at the Los Angeles County Arboretum.

The Social Whirl ‘Unforgettable' Crystal Ball Deemed Another Success

With this year’s “unforgettable” Crystal Ball now history, the numbers are in, and the exciting event was yet another success. Money raised from Methodist Hospital’s 23rd annual fundraiser was estimated to be just shy of a half a million dollars. The 870 guests at the Pasadena Convention Center on October 13 enjoyed Natalie Cole’s classy performance, along with an elegant dinner and silent and live auctions. Of the $470,000 total raised for the hospital’s elite stroke program, $104,000 was donated by guests that evening alone. The glittering gala honored former hospital president and CEO Dennis Lee and his wife, Carolyn, for their years of support for the hospital and the community. “It was both gratifying

and inspiring to witness first-hand the community coming together to financially support the hospital and to honor Dennis and Carolyn Lee, who have contributed greatly to the long-term success of the hospital,” event co-chair Peggy Cherng said. Cherng’s co-chair John Wuo added, “It has been truly an honor and pleasure to work with Peggy and to honor Dennis and Carolyn for their contributions and commitment to the hospital and our community. I want to thank all the committee members for their tireless efforts in making sure we had a successful event. Most of all, I want to thank each person who attended Crystal Ball. Without your support, we would not have had such a great event.” Natalie Cole, daughter of jazz legend Nat King Cole, performed her own

Paul Anka Performance Stellar Continued from page 1

who attended with three of her good friends to see the show, said the concert was the best she has ever seen. She also said that she “could hear every note Anka sang. It was a blessing, a fantastic show. We all had such a great time,” Naylor said. Naylor pointed out a critical part in of the complex world of acoustics. The Performing Arts Center is truly state-of-the-art acoustically enabling those with hearing difficulties to appreciate the nuances of performances due to a inspired design and sound modification. Between songs, Anka expressed his political views in the way of a few stabs at Bill Clinton and President Obama but the for most part it was an emotion-filled love song for the people of Arcadia and especially the students at the High School. A couple of the more emotional highlights included his posthumous duets of songs he wrote for or with famous singers such as Michael Jackson and Sammy Davis Jr. Anka’s 15-piece band included some exceptional percussion and guitar solos by some very capable musicians, and 29 members

of the Arcadia High School Orchestra String Section and one stand out violinist. Anka opened his twohour plus set with his signature song, "Diana" as he strolled through the audience making his way up the steps to the stage as audience members were singing along. Prior to the opening number, audience members were advised not to take photos during the performance. After a few songs, Anka said it was okay to take pictures despite the warning: “We’re family tonight,” he said. Anka also performed a song he wrote for Buddy Holly, "It Doesn't Matter

Anymore," a posthumous hit after he died in a plane crash. One well-known audience member, Cal Phil Maestro Victor Vener, was thunderstruck by Anka’s long set. “I was astounded by the man’s energy. Paul Anka’s voice was pitch perfect and what a terrific band.” Anyone who witnessed Anka’s performance Saturday knows that his long and successful career in the music business was upstaged only by his seemingly boundless energy both vocally and physically. Anka was, and still is, one heck of a showman.

A powerful assembly was held on October 24, 2012 in the auditorium at San Gabriel Mission High School. The organization called Invisible Children came to speak to the student body “to raise awareness of their campaign against Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army. Kony is the leader of an army that has waged a war of mutilation and murder across Uganda, the Congo and other regions of Africa. Invisible Children’s goal is

to stop the war by catching Kony and putting him on trial for his actions.” Speakers at the assembly included Austin, a representative from Invisible Children and Quinto, an escapee from the Lord’s Resistance Army. The video, Move was shown to the entire student body. Invisible Children has truly made an impact on all the students. According to Teri Collier, Director of Campus Ministry, “Invisible Children has gotten the

attention of lawmakers and politicians worldwide. There will be a summit of these world leaders held in Washington, DC on November 17, 2012 to discuss world issues including the conflict led by Kony.” And here at SGMHS, a group of students who would like to attend the summit, are scrambling to raise funds to participate in this worthwhile cause.

Continued from page 1

global event, the Breeders’ Cup consists of 15 races worth a total of more than $25 million and hosted by Santa Anita for the sixth time with six races on Friday and nine on Saturday to be televised on NBC Sports Network and NBC. For the first time, the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic will be televised live and in primetime on NBC from 8-9 p.m. ET. A complete list of Breeders’ Cup entries is available at www.breederscup.com. Lanni Family Trust, Mercedes Stable and Bernie Schiappa’s 5-year-old gelding Game On Dude has been installed as the 9-to-5 morning line favorite in the 1 ¼ miles Classic and will break from post position 5 in a field of 12 drawn for the Classic. A son of Awesome Again, Game On Dude leads a formidable team of 10 Breeders’ Cup contenders trained by Bob Baffert. Jockey Rafael Bejarano rode him for the first time winning the 1 1/8 miles Awesome Again Stakes over the track on Sept. 29 and will be back aboard Saturday. Leading challengers to the favorite in a wide-open renewal of the Classic will be the Bill Mott-trained team of Preston Stable’s two-time Jockey Club Gold Cup winner Flat Out and Brous Stable and Wachtel Stable’s Ron the Greek, impressive winner of the Santa Anita Handicap in early March over the track and distance. Flat Out drew post 2 and Ron the Greek leaves from post 10. Michael Tabor, Mrs. John Magnier and Derrick Smith’s 5-year-old Irishbred St Nicholas Abbey won the $3 million Breeders’ Cup Turf over the Churchill Downs course last year and is back to defend his title in the 1 ½ miles test leading a team of nine

Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita Race Track Coolmore invaders from Ireland trained by Aidan O’Brien, drawing post three in a field of 12. However, the morning line favorite’s role at 3-to-1 in the Turf will go to Phipps Stable’s 4-year-old Kentucky homebred Point of Entry breaking from post 1 with regular jockey John Velazquez in the saddle for trainer Shug McGaughey. The son of Dynaformer is regarded among the best turf runners produced in the U.S. in recent seasons and goes into the race on a five-race win streak, most recently scoring in the Sword Dancer Invitational at Saratoga and Joe Hirsch Turf Classic at Belmont Park. In somewhat of a surprise development, trainer Dale Romans has opted to send both Priscilla Vacarezza’s 5-year-old gelding Little Mike and Donegal Racing’s 3-year-old Dullahan in the Turf. Both were pre-entered in two races with Little Mike’s other choice the Mile and Dullahan the Classic. Little Mike posted his biggest victory in the 1 ¼ miles Arlington Million and Dullahan has done his best work on synthetic tracks, winning the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland in the spring and the Pacific Classic against older horses at Del Mar in August. While the Classic and Turf highlight the nine Breeders’ Cup races Saturday, the title defense by Besilu Stable’s 4-year-old filly Royal Delta in the $2 million Ladies’ Classic at 1 1/8 miles will clearly be the highlight of Friday’s action with jockey Mike Smith aboard for trainer Bill Mott in a field of eight fillies and mares. The daughter of Empire Maker was installed the 9-to-5 favorite and breaks from post 6. Royal Delta sealed an Eclipse Award campaign

winning the Ladies’ Classic at Churchill Downs by 2 ½ lengths last fall for Mott but sold for $8.5 million days later at the Keeneland November sales to Besilu owner Benjamin Leon with Mott retained as trainer. Royal Delta goes into the race after a stunning 9 ½-length victory in the Beldame Stakes at Belmont. Mott pulled off the rare Ladies’ Classic-Classic double last year with Royal Delta in the former and upset winner Drosselmeyer in the latter. However, in the path of Royal Delta’s title defense are two undefeated fillies – Stronach Stable’s 10-for-10 4-year-old Awesome Feather, trained by Chad Brown, and Stonestreet Stable and George Bolton’s 3-year-old My Miss Aurelia, winner of all six career starts for trainer Steve Asmussen. Both fillies won the Grey Goose Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies in their respective 2-year-old seasons. Royal Delta is one of eight

defending or returning Breeders’ Cup champions entered for Friday and Saturday. A particularly deep and accomplished field of nine was drawn for Saturday’s $2 million Breeders’ Cup Mile with Morton Fink’s 5-year-old gelding Wise Dan, Team Valor International’s 2011 Kentucky Derby hero Animal Kingdom among the star players and Mrs. John Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith’s 4-year-old Excelebration (IRE) leading a team of several accomplished European-raced contenders in the race. Trained by Charles Lopresti, Wise Dan breaks from post 2 as the 9-to-5 morning line favorite after posting three consecutive major victories, including the Woodbine Mile and Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland. Excelebration was very impressive winning the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes last out on Oct. 20. Trained by Aidan

O’Brien, the son of Exceed and Excel was topclass all season, but had to settle for second-best on three occasions behind the highly-acclaimed Frankel during the campaign. Animal Kingdom is an intriguing prospect in the Mile for trainer Graham

Motion as the homebred son of Leroidesanimaux makes only his second start since suffering an injury in the 2011 Belmont Stakes and first since winning a turf allowance at Gulfstream Park in February, exiting that race with another injury.

Joy Lin, Wife of Assembly Candidate Dr. Matthew Lin

Files Legal Complaint Against 49th Assembly District Candidate Ed Chau Joy Lin, wife of Assembly candidate Dr. Matthew Lin, has filed a legal complaint against 49th Assembly District candidate Ed Chau for violating her constitutional and statutory rights by sending out four campaign mailers to potentially tens of thousands of voters displaying her full name, home, and complete social security number. “I personally knew that when I decided to run for office, it would be difficult on our family and that there would be misleading information about me, but never did I foresee having my opponent, attack my wife personally and potentially subject her to identify theft and credit fraud,” said Dr. Matthew Lin. “My name is on

the ballot and I am the one running for office, not my wife, the actions taken by Ed Chau seem low, even for a trial lawyer.” On October 20, 2012, Mrs. Lin sent a written request to Chau, asking that he refrain from using her personal information in his campaign materials. The documents used by Chau attacking Dr. Lin, don’t contain Dr. Lin’s name and has nothing on the face of that document showing any connection to Dr. Lin. The tax lien disclosing Mrs. Joy Lin’s full social security number was filed erroneously by the government and reversed more than fourteen years ago. Trial attorney Ed Chau knew this, yet mis-

lead voters into believing that no taxes were paid. Ed Chau ignored the October 20th request, and has continued to broadcast Mrs. Joy Lin’s full social security number via cable television and Youtube. Since Dr. Matthew Lin has ran for office, he has been a target of identity theft and Mrs. Lin fears she will be next. Mrs. Lin was left with no other recourse, but to file a legal complaint against Chau on Friday, October 26, 2012, in the Los Angeles Superior Court. The file complaint requests that Chau cease from invading Mrs. Lin’s privacy as to her personal and financial affairs, and as to her social security number.

Sierra Madre on Green Committee Continued from page 1

According to James Carlson, staff liaison to the Green Advisory Committee, the committee presented what they envisioned as the roles and responsibilities of the proposed commission at the Oct. 23 City Council meeting. Carlson said the city is carefully going through the process of determining a plan of efficiency and accountability for the proposed Green Commission. “They didn’t go full commission,” he said. “They could have done any of that stuff yesterday, but they decided to go along with the process they set forth at the beginning there.” This process of envisioning the roles and responsibilities of a Green Commission concerns such details as annual reports, term limits, residency, and whom members will report to. “In the end (the council) basically decided to go with staff’s recommendation, which was to discuss the inventory and the recommendations and proceed with the next requested report, the Environmental Accords,” said Carlson. Among the ten items outlining the possible roles of the commission, the first point summed up the committee’s intentions, though in a broad and lengthy description:

Act in an advisory capacity to the City Council in all matters pertaining to energy, science and technology, and natural resources and the environment and to cooperate with other governmental agencies and civic groups in the advancement of the planning, programming, use and conservation of energy and natural resources, as well as the preservation of the environment and the achievement of the sustainability goals and objectives of the city. “I think it might be beneficial to the committee, after hearing the council last night, to maybe trim these down to little bit more specifics,” said Carlson, “and that’s something we might want to discuss at that third (meeting) when they plan to discuss moving forward or not.” So what is the real difference between a commission and a committee? According to Carlson, the difference is technical, that is, a commission would have to be written into the municipal code. “It would have things such as formal terms - some of our commissions have three-year terms, some four-year terms - residential requirements would be written in there, and the one thing I think that the committee is looking for would be more defined

roles because each of our municipal codes for a commission is pretty specific on what they’re supposed to do,” he explained. Carlson said the City Council is host to different opinions regarding the issue of commission status, and that public feedback is important at this time. “I think they have a lot of discussions, some things to work out, (and) probably would benefit from some more public input as well,” said Carlson, noting the four or five speakers who did address the subject the night of the meeting. “I think taking the slow process and letting it come up a couple of times is probably a good idea before making that ultimate decision.” The first time the City Council addressed the committee’s request for commission status was at the Aug. 14 meeting, when the committee was asked to return with three more presentations, including an inventory of the city’s green practices and policies. The committee’s next report to the council will tentatively take place on Tuesday, Nov. 13, when they will discuss the proposed Sierra Madre Environmental Accords. Final consideration of the proposed commission is tentatively set for Tuesday, Nov. 27.

9-1-1 Caller Will Not Be Prosecuted, DA Says Continued from page 1

the suspect carryiung a gun. Attorney for Kendrec McDade’s father, Caree Harper , said: “The failure of the District Attorney to file FELONY false report charges against Carrillo is a travesty of justice. The Chief was grandstanding

when he arrested Carrillo for involuntary manslaughter instead of felony false report and he used that media attention to divert from Griffin and Newlen, the men who really killed Kendrec. The D.A. delayed this announcement

until one day before the 7 month anniversary Kendrec was shot because now Kendrec’s case is no longer the flavor of the month and their failure to charge a felony will unfortunately just be a footnote in the news now.”

California’s Prop 37 Apt to Start GMO Labeling Trend By Arianna Locatell California’s November Ballot has the biotechnology industry compromised, as Prop 37 threatens to override the synergy of business and politics that has enabled the lucrative industry and threatened the American ideal of liberty for nearly two decades. One of the main concerns regarding biotechnology is the way in which genetically modified (GM) foods have quietly been put on supermarket shelves without any notice to consumers. Pamm Larry, a California resident concerned with the safety of GM foods, initiated the ballot measure for prop 37, creating the California Right To Know Genetically Engineered Food Act; and giving California the opportunity to be a pioneer in the labeling GM foods in the U.S. Speaking on behalf of the public, Larry says that mandatory labeling is important because “we are consumers and have the right in a free market to know what we are purchasing.” The California Right To Know Genetically Engineered Food Act states that “the purpose of this measure is to create and enforce the fundamental right of the people of California to be fully informed about whether the food they purchase and eat is genetically engineered and not misbranded as natural so that they can choose for themselves whether to purchase and eat such foods.” Thus far, Prop 37 has widespread support. A recent study conducted by the Mellman Group indicates that 91% of American voters support mandatory labeling of genetically modified products. Almost entirely born of economic concerns, the antagonistic opponents of Prop 37 have spent $25 million in media advertisements to convince people that Prop 37 is “arbitrary,” “ill-conceived” and “illogical.” The No on 37 campaign is majorly funded

by Monsanto, the leading biotechnology corporation that accounts for most of the world’s seed supply; Dupont; Dow; Coca-Cola and General Mills. Opponents of Prop 37 argue that implementing labels will result in food producers paying exorbitant costs to re-label their products and it will further cause them to lose money by deterring consumers. Erroneously, claims have been made that it will raise grocery bills for consumers. As Prop 37 is not calling to ban GM foods, only label them, the products will still be on the market, at the same price, for consumers to buy post labeling enforcement. As Prop 37 will outlaw the misbranding of GM foods as natural, an additional concern of the No on 37 campaign is that the legality of marketing various processed food products will become questionable and result in lawsuits. Proponents of Prop 37 from the California Right To Know campaign advocate for the labeling of GM foods for health and environmental concerns. In the 1990’s, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved GM foods and new plant varieties for commercial use as substantially equivalent to their naturally grown counterparts. Disconcertingly, under their current status with the FDA, GM foods are not subject to premarket safety assessments. Instead, the FDA states that “it is the responsibility of the producer of a new food to evaluate the safety of the food.” As a result of the FDA’s policy on GM foods and U.S. patent laws that safeguard corporations’ intellectual property, public sector testing of GM foods has been inhibited and knowledge regarding the effects of such foods is highly inadequate to determine whether or not they are safe for consumption. Additionally, plants have been genetically modified

so that crops can either withstand or self-produce toxic herbicides and pesticides developed by Monsanto or other chemical engineering corporations. The use of such chemicals can cause soil erosion, biodiversity loss, and the surfacing of herbicide resistant superweeds. Transgenic contamination also is point of concern. Biotechnology companies have dominated the world’s seed supply, idyllically claiming that they’ll end world hunger with sustainable agriculture. For an industry with such great intentions, it seems odd that its corporations are contesting Prop 37 instead of proudly labeling their products. Pamm Larry muses that corporations remain secretive because “they are afraid that once people know the truth about their products and their lack of ethics in the market place, that people will not want their products as they haven’t in 49 other countries.” India, China, Japan and all of Europe currently impose labeling on GM foods. Biotechnology practices remain controversial in developing countries. It’s a simple and clear truth that the effects of GM foods are unknown. It’s another simple and clear truth that consumers have the right to choose what they buy –or at least they should. Be it for a health, ecologic or moral principal, consumers ought to be capable of making educated decisions. 1.2 million people have already contacted the FDA requesting GM labeling, and widespread support for Prop 37 has already been shown. With success of Prop 37 in CA and continuous action from U.S. citizens, perhaps America will finally catch up to the rest of the world and offer it’s consumers the right and liberty to know what they’re eating.

He was named the Planning Principal of the Middle School campus in 2010. Esther Salinas selected

POLICE BLOTTERS Arcadia PD

Sunday, October 21: At about 1:10 a.m., officers responded to The Patio, 21 East Huntington Drive, regarding an argument involving three subjects. During the investigation, one of the subjects refused to take his hands out of his pockets, and place them on top of his head, as ordered by officers. Though initially non-compliant, the subject ultimately complied with the officers’ orders, and was arrested for both delaying an officer in the course of his duties and public intoxication. The other two subjects involved in the argument were also arrested for public intoxication. At approximately 1:47 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 1000 block of S. Eighth Avenue in reference to a road rage incident that resulted in vandalism. The victim reported that a White male adult, with gray-colored eyes, stopped her on the road because he believed she had cut him off. As a result, he kicked her front bumper, broke her driver’s side mirror, and kicked her door. The victim wrote down the suspect’s license plate number as he left the area, but no matches were found on the plate number in the DMV database. Monday, October 22: Around 7:23 p.m., officers responded to the 000 block of Alta Street regarding a theft involving a wife and her estranged husband. The wife reported that she believed her estranged husband had stolen an identification card and gift card from her purse during a visit a few days earlier. At about 9:45 p.m., an officer conducted a traffic stop for expired registration in the area of Oakhurst Lane and Colorado Street. The driver of the white Buick provided the officer an expired license. The 60-year-old White female was subsequently cited and released in the field. Her vehicle was left legally parked at the scene. Tuesday, October 23: Around 1:21 a.m., officers responded to Motel 6, 225 Colorado Place, regarding a battery. Investigation revealed an argument

between a boyfriend and girlfriend turned into a physical altercation wherein the boyfriend was the aggressor. The boyfriend grabbed the girlfriend by the hair, caused her to fall to the ground, and forced her to surrender her car keys and cell phone before driving away in her car. The car was recovered in Fontana later that day, and was released back to the girlfriend. The suspect remains outstanding. At about 1:43 p.m., an officer responded to the 2300 block of Lee Avenue in regards to a burglary occurring while residents were home. The suspect attempted to enter the residence through an opened, rear window, and was confronted by a female resident. The male suspect then fled the location without actually entering the residence. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 25–35 years old, with black, spiky hair. Prior to the burglary, one of the residents heard the doorbell ring. By the time they answered the door, nobody was there. The burglary occurred moments later. This practice by suspects seems to be a consistent pattern in recent burglaries throughout the city. Wednesday, October 24: Around 12:06 p.m., officers were dispatched to the area of Lemon Avenue and Grace Avenue to assist with the disposal of a grenade. Upon arrival, officers briefly examined the grenade, and believed it was inert. However, as a precautionary measure, the Los Angeles County Bomb Squad was dispatched for assistance. Their investigation confirmed the grenade was inert, and all residents asked to evacuate their residences during the incident returned to their homes a short time later. At about 9:45 p.m., an officer responded to Macy’s at the Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, regarding an adult subject in custody for theft. The 34-year-old Chinese female concealed items inside her purse, and exited the store without paying for them. Police took custody of the suspect, and transported her to the Arcadia City Jail

for booking. Thursday, October 25: Shortly after 3:50 p.m., an officer was dispatched to the President’s Square parking lot, 1300 South Golden West Avenue, regarding a vandalism, and theft by trick or device. The victim returned to his vehicle after shopping to find that someone had dented and scratched it. The victim was simultaneously approached by an unknown male who offered to fix the damage onsite. When the victim photographed the suspicious male’s license plate, the unknown male immediately drove away. At approximately 6:21 p.m., an officer was dispatched to the Arcadia Public Library, 20 West Duarte Road, in reference to a theft. The victim was inside the Library for the better part of two hours before discovering that her car keys and wallet were missing from her backpack. The victim was not sure if the property had been stolen from her backpack, or if she had left the property in the library bathroom earlier in the day. In either case, someone took her property without her permission. Friday, October 26: At about 2:17 a.m., an officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for traveling on the wrong side of Santa Anita Avenue. Upon contact with the driver, the officer smelled an odor of alcohol emitting from inside the vehicle. A subsequent investigation revealed the driver was under the influence of alcohol, and the 28-year-old Hispanic female was arrested and transported to the Arcadia City Jail for booking. Around 9:30 a.m., officers responded to Healthcare Partners Medical Group, 440 East Huntington Drive, regarding a commercial burglary. Investigation revealed that suspect(s) committed the burglary during the late night hours of October 25th to the early morning hours of October 26th, and stole three laptop computers. No signs of forced entry were detected by officers, nor were there any other indications of how the suspects gained entry into the building.

Saturday, October 27: At about 1:47 a.m., an officer contacted a subject staggering in the area of Clark Street and Cogswell Road. Upon contact with the 23-year-old Hispanic male, the officer smelled a strong odor of alcohol on the subject’s breath, and noticed other objective symptoms of intoxication as well. The officer determined the subject was unable to care for his safety, and arrested him for public intoxication. Shortly after 1:50 p.m., officers were dispatched to the Macy’s parking lot at the Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, in reference to a vandalism involving a vehicle. The vehicle’s owner indicated that she believed the vandalism was the result of a parking dispute she had with another driver earlier that day. Though the owner did not actually see the vandalism occur, she can identify the person whom she had the dispute with if seen again.

Monrovia PD

Driving Under the Influence - Suspect Arrested October 21 at 1:45 a.m., Special Enforcement Team officers were traveling west on Foothill, near California, when they saw a vehicle traveling head on with them in the wrong lane.

problems were reported. Residential Burglary October 23 at 8:23 p.m., a burglary was reported at a residence in the 200 block of West Central. The crime occurred on Saturday, October 20, sometime between 5:30 and 11:30 p.m. The victim didn’t notice the loss until October 23. The suspect forced open the front door to gain entry. Cash, cologne, and the pink slips to two vehicles were stolen. Receiving Stolen Property / Parole Hold Suspect Arrested On October 25 at 11:35 p.m., officers stopped a bicyclist for not having a headlight in the 900 block of Encino. The bicyclist is currently on parole, and he told officers that he borrowed the bicycle from his brother, who had stolen it. He was arrested, and during the booking process, it was discovered that he is a parolee at large. He was charged with receiving stolen property and a parole hold was obtained. Burglary / Sexual Battery With Intent to Commit Rape Suspect Arrested On October 26 at 3:38 p.m., officers responded to the 100 block of West Colorado regarding a female yelling for help. A male suspect approached the female victim’s front door and shook the handle and then knocked. The victim looked out her window and recognized the suspect as someone who used to work with her. The victim cracked the door open and the suspect asked for the victim by name. The victim asked him what he wanted, and he replied that he was going to rape her, and he forced the door open. As the suspect forced the door open, the victim grabbed the door frame and yelled for help. She was overpowered by the suspect and he pushed her to the floor. The suspect climbed on top of the victim, stared at her face, and, again, told her he was going to rape her. The victim continued to scream for help. Three male subjects heard the victim’s screams, grabbed the suspect, and pulled him out to the sidewalk, where they

held him until officers arrived. When officers arrived, the suspect was still struggling to get away. The suspect was arrested and taken into custody without further incident. The victim suffered no injuries, but was shaken up from the incident.

Sierra Madre PD

Tuesday October 23 At 8:15am, a vehicle travelling south on Baldwin Avenue, stopped for the stop sign at Orange Grove Avenue, but then proceeded into the intersection before it was clear. A minor traffic collision occurred with no injuries reported. At 2:15pm, a resident received a call from a Bank of America branch in Arcadia, informing her that an individual was fraudulently attempting to cash a check against her grandfather’s account. Further investigation revealed that there additional fraud on this account took place the preceding day. As the victim was still in possession of the check numbers being passed, it is apparent that the suspect(s) had obtained the account information of the victim and created fraudulent documents using his account information. Thursday October 25 Overnight, an unknown suspect entered an unlocked vehicle that was parked in a carport in the 500 block of West Sierra Madre Boulevard. The suspect removed fishing gear and a wallet from the passenger compartment and fled without being seen. Officers obtained print lifts from the vehicle and an investigation is in progress.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The City of San Gabriel is proposing amendments to the Valley Boulevard Neighborhoods Sustainability Plan (also known as the Valley Boulevard Specific Plan) including comprehensive development standards for hotels. The intent of the changes is to facilitate development and to make revisions to the plan reflecting six years of experience with plan implementation. These amendments fall into the following three categories: 1. Minor clarifications of existing standards 2. Corrections of errors or omissions 3. Comprehensive development standards for hotels in the Valley Boulevard Specific Plan area, standards for live/work units which will be allowed as of right and clarification that banks are an allowed commercial use Section 153.290 of the San Gabriel Municipal Code is proposed to be amended. ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW: The project was reviewed for compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). On December 19, 2006 the City Council certified the Final Environmental Impact Report (Final EIR) for the Specific Plan in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), which was a Program EIR. The Final EIR analyzed implementation and buildout of the Specific Plan over a 20-year planning period. The proposed Specific Plan amendments would not modify the maximum development potential approved for the Specific Plan that was analyzed in the Final EIR. Therefore, the City has determined that the proposed amendments only require preparation of an Addendum to the Final EIR. SAN GABRIEL PLANNING COMMISSION By Mark Gallatin, AICP, City Planner
