Dorothy's Place

Food for Thought

By Dorothy Denne Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Full tummy? Loosen the belt, sit back, relax and enjoy a pleasant story: A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead. He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them. After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight. When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold.

He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side. When he was close enough, he called out, “Excuse me, where are we?” “This is Heaven, sir” the man answered. “Wow! Would you happen to have some water?” the man asked. “Of course, sir. Come right in, and I’ll have some ice water brought right up.” The man gestured and the gate began to open. “Can my friend,” gesturing toward his dog, “come in, too?” the traveler asked. “I’m sorry, sir, but we don’t accept pets.” The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog. After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed. As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree reading a book. “Excuse me.” he called to the man. “Do you have

any water?” “Yeah, sure, there’s a pump over there. Come on in.” “How about my friend here?” the traveler gestured to the dog. “There should be a bowl by the pump.” the man answered. They went through the gate and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it. The traveler filled the water bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog. When they were full, he and his dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree. “What do you call this place?” the traveler asked. “This is Heaven,” he answered. “Well that’s confusing,” the traveler said. “The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.” “Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That’s Hell.” “Well doesn’t it make you mad for them to use your name like that?” “No, we’re just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind.”

Immigrant Sneider Family Grateful

Their First Thanksgiving in America was 1949 By Harry Sneider The bloody and brutal war was over. We ran all over Europe during World War II looking for a place to live. My father was a prisoner, we didn’t know where he was. My mother kept us safe even though we were starving and had no place to call our home. By some major miracles we found our father and were reunited in 1946. Being of Latvian descent we had been overrun by the Russians and did not want to return there under their rule. My dad was able to speak English and discovered through the Lutheran Welfare Agency that there was a farmer in Minnesota that wanted to sponsor us to help him with his farm work. We had other options and could have gone to Australia, Canada, South America or the United States. We chose the United States. We arrived by boat from Germany to Boston, Massachusetts in 1949. The long journey included a train trip across part of the United States to Northfield, Minnesota. The kindly Christian people there took us in on the farm. We were put into some wonderful grade schools and learned the various holidays that the Americans kept. I remember very vividly cutting out turkeys and pilgrims, adding fall colors with real leaves from the beautiful trees in Minnesota and making these very intimate Thanksgiving cards for our families. As Latvians my mother remembers her youth where she ate wonderful meals similar to Thanksgiving consisting of turkey, sauerkraut, potatoes, carrots, and cranberries. She immediately got into the spirit of wishing all neighbors

around the farms a Happy Thanksgiving. We attended church services and sang hymns praising God for all of His love toward us in America. These vivid memories of my early childhood make Thanksgiving 2012 even more important than ever. Our nation has one sixth of the population living in poverty and many are hungry this Thanksgiving. Our nation is a giving nation and people reach out to help one another. We are thankful for that. My brother, Karl, saves up blankets, shoes, clothing, and turkeys. Then, he barbeques the turkeys in the poorest part of Minneapolis where the Indians live and gives food and clothing to people there. He has taught school to the Indian children and some have come to school with

no shoes. Many are struggling with no jobs, addiction issues, and not a very bright future. He goes out to these neighborhoods and becomes a real light to the children and their families. What can you do to make this Thanksgiving meaningful? 1. Ask God to help. 2. Reach out and help the people that are struggling. 3. Gather your family together and thank God for them. 4. Stay positive during this time. 5. People are not perfect, be loving and kind toward one another. 6. Exercise and eat healthy. 7. Be happy that you are alive and well in the United States of America. THE BEST IS YET TO BE! Harry and Sarah Sneider can be reached at 626355-8964 or harrysneider@ earthlink.net.

Oak Receives Character Education Promising Practices Award Every February for the past four years, Oak Avenue Intermediate School’s library is converted into a Museum of Tolerance. Oak’s Guidance Counselor, Lori Johnson, with the support of school administration and staff, has facilitated this event designed to educate students regarding the destructive influence of bullying. This year on behalf of Oak Avenue School, Ms. Johnson traveled to Washington, D.C. to receive a Promising Practices Award from the Character Education Partnership (CEP). CEP selected Oak’s Museum of Tolerance because the project is a unique educational approach designed to promote positive core values which contribute to the creation of a caring community. Through the museum, students engage in a multifaceted approach to learning that champions the development of conflict resolution skills, embraces diversity, and models tolerance. The museum represents a collaborative effort of staff members, with the support of site administration, who re-

SoCalGas Offers Tips on Preventing, Spotting and Responding to Natural Gas Leaks With the winter weather upon us, people tend to use their natural gas appliances more often. Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) urges customers to be safe and know the signs of a natural gas leak and what to do if a leak is suspected. SoCalGas offers these safety tips to help customers and the general public recognize and respond to natural gas leaks: Use your sense of sight, hearing or smell to alert you to the presence of a gas leak. Signs of a possible leak include: A damaged connection to a gas appliance, dirt or water being blown in the air, dead or dying vegetation (in an otherwise moist area) over or near pipeline areas, a fire or explosion near a pipeline or exposed pipeline after an earthquake, fire, flood or other disaster. An unusual sound, such

as a hissing, whistling or roaring sound near a gas line or appliance. The distinctive odor of natural gas. Even though an odor is added to natural gas to assist in the detection of leaks, do not rely on sense of smell alone to alert you to a gas leak since there may be occasions when you might not be able to smell the odor additive. Visit SoCalGas’ website at www.socalgas. com/safety for more information. If a leak is suspected: Remain calm. Don’t light a match, candle or cigarette, and don’t turn any electrical devices on or off, including light switches, or use any device or equipment that could cause a spark. Immediately evacuate the area where the leak is suspected and from a safe location call SoCalGas at (800)

427-2200, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, or call 911. Don’t attempt to control the leak or repair the damaged pipe or meter. SoCalGas operates more than 100,000 miles of pipeline to safely transport gas to homes and businesses throughout its service area. Although SoCalGas routinely performs pipeline safety tasks, including patrolling, testing, repairing, and replacing pipelines, leaks in natural gas pipelines do occur and can be caused by third-party contractors, hidden corrosion or natural disasters, and can be flammable. Call Underground Service Alert (USA) at 811 at least two business days before digging to have utility-owned lines marked. This is a free service and it can help prevent injury, costly property damage and loss of utility ser-

vice.

Most natural gas pipelines are buried underground, but only major pipeline routes are marked above ground with high visibility markers. These markers purposely indicate only the general – not exact – location of major pipelines usually found where a pipeline would intersect a street, highway or rail line. Pipeline markers also do not indicate the depth or the number of pipelines in the area. Most lower-pressure lines used to serve residential neighborhoods and businesses are not marked, and could be just inches below ground, which is why it is important to know where they are buried before digging for any reason. Immediately report any pipe damage by calling SoCalGas at (800) 427-2200. No damage is too small to report.

$1.5 Million Gift from the Norman and Sadie Lee Foundation Establishes Pediatric Professorship at City of Hope A $1.5 million pledge from The Norman and Sadie Lee Foundation has established the Norman & Sadie Lee Professorship in Pediatrics at City of Hope. The endowment will support childhood cancer research at City of Hope. “This generous gift from The Norman and Sadie Lee Foundation exemplifies their commitment in the fight against pediatric cancers,” said Michael A. Friedman, M.D., chief executive officer and Irell & Manella Cancer Center Director’s Distinguished Chair at City of Hope. “This endowment will fuel innovative research to develop better treatments

and models of care so that our youngest cancer patients will lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.” According to the American Cancer Society, more than 12,000 children will be diagnosed with a cancer in 2012. While survival rates have improved significantly over the recent decades, cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease among children under 15. “Although great advances have been made, and most children diagnosed with cancer today will be cured, the need for further research to achieve cure in all children with cancer is urgent,” said Joseph Rosenthal,

M.D., Barron Hilton Chair in Pediatrics. “Additionally, there is a need to study childhood cancer survivors over the long term so that chronic side effects and survivorship issues can be mitigated and prevented.” This latest gift from The Norman and Sadie Lee Foundation continues upon their decades-long tradition of supporting City of Hope’s pediatric programs, including the Sadie & Norman Lee British Biomedical Research Center, which was dedicated in 1983 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh. Established in 1978, the Norman and Sadie Lee Foundation

supports organizations focused on medical research and services, culture and the arts, and education. The foundation is named in honor of the late Norman and Sadie Lee, Los Angeles philanthropists. Norman Lee was a member of the City of Hope board of directors and board of trustees. “City of Hope is a leader in developing new treatments for children with cancer,” said Paul A. James, president of The Norman and Sadie Lee Foundation. “We are honored to carry on the legacy of Mr. and Mrs. Lee in supporting pediatric research at this nationally renowned cancer center.”

LA Cities Band Together to Ask State for Support By dena burroughs Police officers representing a wide range of cities in the Los Angeles County, including El Monte, South Pasadena, Monrovia, Arcadia, Downey, South Gate, Montebello, and Glendora, gave a press conference regarding Realignment Thursday morning outside the El Monte Civic Center. Led by El Monte Mayor Pro-Tem Juventino Gomez, who is also the President of the Independent Cities Association, they gathered to call attention to the challenges that the municipalities are facing and will continue to face due to the enactment of California Assembly bills AB109 and AB117, commonly known as the “Public Safety Realignment.” What Realignment entails is that, since October 2011, offenders considered non-serious, non-sexual, and non-violent began to be moved from California state prisons to county jails, the county probation system, and county courts. Some are receiving early releases back into the communities. Statewide, thousands of people who used to be the

responsibility of the State are instead being supervised and housed by local county and sheriff departments. Local law enforcement considers Realignment a bad public policy that has overwhelmed the county reserves and its jail space and that puts in jeopardy victims’ safety and rights. It has resulted in the improper supervision of parolees, shorter incarceration times, and the closing of several county court houses. Those in attendance were reminded that people who end up

in prison are not first-time offenders, but repeat offenders who in average have five local felonies before they get put in a State prison. These are the folks that are being catalogued as non-serious, non-sexual, and non-violent offenders and put back on the street. “But changing the name does not change the offender type,” said Gardena Chief of Police Ed Medrano. To keep proper public safety, more police officers and more resources must be put in place, but it all costs money. “We are here,” he con-

tinued, “to bring awareness about this transformation that has happened to the system. Proposition 30 contains funding to go towards law enforcement and we are asking that those funds be given to the cities.” “Look at all of these people in front of you,” said Gomez. “These are elected officials and police officers representing many of our cities. This is the infantry keeping our cities safe. But no infantry can do its job without support or funding. We are here to send this message to Sacramento.”

A Community Gratitude Wall, and more, in Old Town Monrovia The shops of Old Town Monrovia are doing their best to help folks “get their smiles back” after a difficult economic downturn and a slower than expected recovery. To bring an extra measure of cheer to Old Town, the City has turned on the holiday lights a couple of weeks early and the business owners are working together on some new events to add to the free activities that have made Myrtle Avenue and its surrounding side streets so inviting during the holiday season. Santa arrives Friday, November 23rd at 10 a.m. and his “Ho, Ho, Hos” will echo up and down the avenue through Christmas Eve. There will be the usual Santa Breakfasts and Lunches in December( with the free toys for the kiddies at each

and every event!), and the FREE Kids Craft Stations on Myrtle as well as the traditional FREE Gift Wrap Stations. The Holiday Event flyers will be on the street in time for the Black Friday events and will be updated each week to include the week’s newest specials. Black Friday and Saturday, The Spark of Love Toy Drive sponsored by Channel 7 Eyewitness News and the Monrovia Fire Department, will again belocated in the 400 block loading zone (in front of the Krikorian Theater). Many Old Town shops and restaurants will be hosting special events and sales that weekend.One of the new eventsscheduledwill be the MAFA Art Walk celebrating Small Business Saturday. The Art Walk begins at noon on Satur-

day the 24th and continues until 8 p.m. that evening. Paint ‘N Play will host a reception featuring photographer Stephan Coleman from 5 – 10 p.m. in connection with theArt Walk and the public is welcome. And to help us put all the happy -- and the stress --in perspective, Shayna Fiore of Diggin for Daisies has come up with a very sweet idea: she calls it her “Community Gratitude Wall”. For the months of November and December Shayna invites everyone to take a walk down the hall that leads back from Gem City Jewelers to her children’s store at the back. There you will find The Wall. Post a poem, a picture, or leave a message and just say “Thank You” out loud. One more way to “get your smile back”!

Homeland Security Targets Designer Knockoffs Nearly $1 Million Worth of Counterfeit Goods Seized During 6-Month Crackdown Special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) executed state search warrants this week against five local vendors and seized more than $200,000 worth of goods, capping a six-month crackdown on Orange County retailers suspected of selling counterfeit merchandise called Operation Fashion Faux Pas. This week’s enforcement actions are the culmination of investigative activities initiated by Orange County HSI special agents in May to identify retailers involved in the theft of intellectual property. Over the course of

Operation Fashion Faux Pas, investigators conducted a total of 18 warranted and consensual searches resulting in the seizure of more than $820,000 worth of counterfeit goods. That figure is based on the estimated retail value of the merchandise had it been genuine. The seized goods, including purses, jewelry, sunglasses, cosmetics and perfume, bear the counterfeit trademarks of more than two dozen well-known brands, such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Rolex, Hermes and Chanel. Among the vendors targeted in this week’s enforcement actions were a Tustin hair salon, a Garden Grove shoe store and

several retail kiosks near the Huntington Beach pier. HSI special agents also executed warrants at private residences in Newport Beach and Westminster linked to individuals suspected of selling counterfeit items. “As we remind consumers, buying knockoffs doesn’t pay off,” said Claude Arnold, special agent in charge for HSI Los Angeles. “The vendors who sell counterfeit merchandise are robbing from the legitimate companies, many of them U.S.-based, that make these products. And perhaps most important, they’re hurting the men and women who depend on those companies for their livelihood.”

ATTENTION! THE READERS HAVE CHOSEN AND THE RESULTS ARE NOW IN

Provisional Ballots Turning Around Measure F Proving that every vote matters, as the provisional ballots continue to be counted, El Monte’s Measure F has gone from losing by 59 votes to now leading by almost the exact number – 58 in its favor. The latest tally was posted November 16 showing a 50.19% “Yes” lead. If the votes in favor of

Measure F remain ahead, the 1990 ordinance that impedes city government to investigate the fairness of the rent amounts charged by mobile home owners in El Monte will be repealed. The tally of votes will be final on Tuesday, December 4. Mobile home renters, particularly those

at the Brookside Mobile Home Park, will be in expectation of the results. The passing of Measure F is the only way that they, who have been receiving rent increases twice a year and are paying, in some instances, three times the average rent amount, will be able to receive help from the City.

Supreme Court Orders Los Angeles County to Pay Millions to Area Cities Los Angeles County improperly withheld millions of tax dollars from 47 cities, the state Supreme Court ruled Monday. The court said the county charged property tax administrative fees on

education money that is exempt from such fees under state law. The ruling will probably mean millions in refunds for cities across L.A. County and beyond. The 47 cities that chal-

lenged the county’s fees include Long Beach, Calabasas, Burbank, Glendale, Covina, West Covina, Pomona and Santa Clarita. The city of Los Angeles was not involved in the case.

Four Men Charged for Conspiracy to Provide Material Support to Terrorism Four men have been charged for their roles in a plot to provide material support to terrorists by making arrangements to join al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan in order to kill, among others, American targets, announced André Birotte, Jr., the United States Attorney in Los Angeles, and Bill Lewis, the Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office. According to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in the Central District of California, the defendants conspired to provide material support to terrorists in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2339A, knowing or intending that such support was to be used in preparation for or in carrying out: conspiracy to kill, kidnap, maim, or injure persons and damage property in a foreign country, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 956; killing and attempting to kill officers and employees of the United States, in violation

of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1114; killing nationals of the United States, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2332(b); conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction outside the United States, in violation

of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2332a(b); and bombing places of public use and government facilities, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2332f. The defendants, listed below, are also known by alias identities listed in the criminal complaint.

Sohiel Omar Kabir, 34, a former resident of Pomona and naturalized United States citizen, born in Afghanistan Ralph Deleon, 23, of Ontario, a lawful permanent resident alien, born in the Philippines Miguel Alejandro Santana Vidriales (further described herein and in the criminal complaint as “Santana”), 21, of Upland, a lawful permanent resident, born in Mexico and whose application for citizenship is pending in the United States Arifeen David Gojali, 21, of Riverside, a United States citizen. The complaint, which was unsealed today during the defendants’ initial appearance in U.S. District Court, alleges that in 2010, Kabir introduced Deleon and Santana to radical and violent Islamic doctrine and various extremist material, including essays and lectures by now-deceased al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula leader, Anwar Al-Awlaqi. Kabir traveled overseas in December Please see page 12

People for People, and then they put it into the form of baskets and turn it over to the needy.” The nonprofit prepares these holiday food baskets for low-income families and others in need throughout the San Gabriel Valley area, serving the cities of Alhambra, San Gabriel, Rosemead, Temple City, Monterey Park and Arcadia. Families normally find their way to the food bank through either local churches or chambers of commerce, who put them in contact with the 28-yearold organization, People for People. “Basically everybody qualifies; everyone has some kind of circumstance where they still need help,” said Norene Rand, director for People for People. “We don’t turn them away; we help everybody,” explaining that even if people come from out of the area, her organization will help them find assistance in their own city. Rand said that for families to register for assistance they need to present identification, a utility bill, and

proof of income; however, she assured, “We never turn them away - we always help them.” According to Rand, her organization has collected approximately 3,000 canned goods from the city’s current drive. About 40 turkeys have been donated, but she’s not too worried about not having enough to go around. “That’s because I have chickens, and I have a lot of families that prefer chicken over turkey, believe it or not,” said Rand. “But normally I have enough of the meat to give to everybody.” Rand said that families will receive a big box of food that contains perishables, including potatoes and salads. Besides the food drive, Rand’s organization hosts a holiday wish list for families’ needs. “We’ve gotten 14 of our families adopted out for the holidays, which is good,” she said. “And I still have 24 more if I could find more people to come and adopt them for the holidays.” The way this works is that a family puts down a

list of their needs, and the nonprofit encourages others in the community to provide for items on that list. Rand said that even though kids may often request some expensive toys, she is still surprised that some adults will only ask for simple stuff. “Some of the women, they just basically want a bar of soap or some laundry detergent, stuff like that,” she said. “But, you know, if a family is on food stamps, you can’t buy that kind of stuff.” Currently, Rand has about 250 families signed up to receive food baskets and toys, of which, nearly 50 percent are from Rosemead. On average the organization receives at least 285 families each month who receive clothing, food, and other help provided through government assistance programs. “Usually our food donations are Rreally very ED UC whose good,” said Rand, ED PR organization is made ICEpossible by its volunteers. “Our problem is that we always Please see page 16

Short Sale Incentives By Rudy Lira Kusuma, REALTOR® For homeowners with depressed property values, banks are offering new, never before seen short-sale cash incentives. Since the beginning of the foreclosure crisis, millions of homeowners have found themselves pinned in by their financial circumstances and chained to a mortgage in which they owe more than their home is worth. But what really makes today a unique time for distressed homeowners is one simple fact: Banks are now willing to give the homeowner cash to sell the home they can no longer afford. “Why would the bank be willing to pay me money?” It is actually very simple. For the banks, it’s all about arithmetic. In a foreclosure, banks take the home from the homeowner and then sell it at auction. The bank keeps the money made at auction, but they also have

to pay money on upkeep of the vacant property and expenses related to the sale. For other options, like a short sale, the bank is not responsible for selling or maintaining the house because it is still owned by the original homeowner and it is the homeowner’s responsibility to find a buyer for the home. In almost every case, the final sale amount in a short sale is greater than the sale amount at a foreclosure auction. Because of this simple fact, short sales have become the preferred foreclosure alternative for the banks. This is why they are willing to offer the homeowner cash to short sell their home: even with a cash incentive, the bank still recovers more money in the long run and the homeowner is able to walk away from their financial situation with some cash in their pocket and the opportunity for a fresh start. “How much money

will they pay?” This varies from bank to bank, but the amounts can be surprising and almost every major lender has some sort of incentive. For instance: Bank of America offers cash incentives $2,500 - $30,000, Wells Fargo offers cash incentives $3,000 $20,000, CHASE offers cash incentives up to $35,000, CITI offers cash incentives up to $35,000 Other smaller banks also have incentives, and there are even government programs (like HAFA and HAMP) that allow owners to do a short sale and receive an incentive. The clock is ticking, but there are more options available the sooner one starts. It is useful to consult to a licensed real estate broker and a certified distressed property expert to discuss specific foreclosure prevention options.

Santa Anita Stall Applications Available, Winter/Spring Meet Opens - Dec. 26 Santa Anita Park has announced that stall applications are now available at www.santaanita.com, for the track’s traditional winter/spring meeting which will open on Dec. 26. “We’d like to encourage those horsemen interested in running here to contact us immediately,” said Santa Anita Vice President of Racing Rick Hammerle. “We anticipate a

great deal of interest from stables here in California and throughout the country and we’d appreciate hearing from trainers and owners as soon as possible.” Santa Anita’s December opener is traditionally one of the most important dates on the North American racing calendar, as the Grade I Malibu Stakes for 3-year-olds at seven furlongs will highlight a card

that will feature a total of three stakes. Other winter/spring staples are the Grade I Santa Anita Handicap on March 2, and the Grade I Santa Anita Derby on April 6. Santa Anita’s 71-day race meet will run through April 21. In addition to the website, horsemen may contact the Santa Anita Racing Office by phone at (626) 574-RACE.

“Driving Miss Daisy” Opens at Sierra Madre Playhouse Friday - Jan. 18 “Driving Miss Daisy” is set mostly in Atlanta, Georgia between 1948 (just before the dawn of the Civil Rights Era) and 1973 and chronicles the relationship between fiercely independent Daisy Werthan, an affluent Jewish widow, and her African-American chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn, hired by Daisy’s son when she can no longer drive herself. Their working relationship begins with difficulty. They eventually achieve a warm friendship. Concerns of both class and race leave their mark in the narrative. So do historical events, such as the bombing of Atlanta’s largest synagogue by the Confederate Underground in 1958 along with the Citizens of Atlanta dinner celebrating Martin Luther King’s Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. The cast of the new production of “Driving Miss Daisy” includes Mary Lou Rosato (veteran of eleven shows on Broadway;

Drama Desk Award winner for her performance in “The School For Scandal”) and Willie C. Carpenter (from the new TV series “1600 Penn”). Brad Reed and Mitch Ward round out the cast. Playwright Alfred Uhry says he based his characters on composites of a number of real people that he knew in his younger days. Uhry won the Pulitzer Prize for this play, and later won an Oscar ® for its screenplay adaptation. He won Tony Awards ® for his scripts for “Parade” and “The Last Night of Ballyhoo.” Christian Lebano directs. Recently at Sierra Madre Playhouse, he directed the critically acclaimed production of “Woman in Mind” and appeared in leading roles in “To Kill A Mockingbird” and “Our Town.” He has directed shows in Los Angeles, Chicago, Milwaukee and San Diego. He will bring a depth of vision and imagination to “Driving

Miss Daisy” as he did to “Woman in Mind.” Executive producer: Estelle Campbell. Associate producer: Sherrie Lofton. Production stage manager: Kristin Weber. Original music: Jonathan Beard. Set design: Gary Wissmann. Costume design: Kristen Kopp. Wig design: Cristina Waltz. Sound design: Barry Schwam. Graphic design: David Byrd. Sierra Madre Playhouse, 87 W.

San Gabriel Announces March Municipal Elections We have now gone from “get out the vote” to “keep your vote out!” The November elections are over, now let’s get on with San Gabriel’s municipal elections for Mar. 5, 2013. The City of San Gabriel announced that it has opened its filing period to fill three City Council seats along with the City Clerk and City Treasurer positions. The City Clerk’s office is now accepting applications from residents, and this election’s nomination period runs from Nov. 13 to Dec. 7. Natalie Sanchez of the City Clerk’s office confirmed that all three City Council members, Mayor Kevin B. Sawkins, Vice Mayor De La Torre and Councilman David R. Gutierrez, have all filed their papers for re-election. Sawkins was first elected to the City Council in 2005 after serving seven years on the City’s Planning Commission. His law firm, Sawkins and Albert, represents plaintiffs and defendants in a broad range of civil matters including business disputes, real estate matters, and other civil litigation matters. De La Torre was elected to the council in 2009. He is a licensed real estate broker and business partner in Cousins Realty, a family-owned and operated residential and commercial real estate company. Gutierrez was first elected to the council in 2001 and has served three times as the San Gabriel’s mayor. He runs a firm that provides training for medical service providers across

Southern California. He is also chairman of the board for the Alameda Corridor East Construction Authority. Other individuals interested in running for a City Council seat, or for the City Clerk and City Treasurer posts, must be 18 years of age, a registered voter, and reside within the city limits of San Gabriel. The City Clerk’s Office has asked interested candidates to schedule an appointment to receive more information or candidacy papers by calling (626) 308-2816. The filing period closes 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 12, 2012. More information can be found on the city’s website elections page at www.sangabrielcity.com. Visit the city’s home page, then click on “City Hall,” then “City Clerk’s Office,” followed by “Elections.” Candidates must also keep in mind campaign reporting requirements. Campaign forms and most manuals and instructions are available through the Fair Political Practices Commission, which provides free, expert advice. Contact the FPPC at (866) 275-3772 or www.fppc. ca.gov. The City of San Gabriel has 15,639 registered voters as of July 27, 2012, according to the County Registrar of Voters. The last day to register to vote for the March municipal elections is Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2013. Another highlight for San Gabriel’s Mar. 5, 2013 ballot is the proposed Transient Occupancy Tax. The San Gabriel City Council approved a resolu-

tion at its Nov. 6 meeting to place the hotel bed tax measure on the March ballot proposing to increase the transient occupancy tax from 10 to 12 percent. The city said the Transient Occupancy Tax is in line with recent increases in a number of Southland cities, and that such a tax is not paid by residents, but typically appears as a surcharge on visitors’ hotel bills. The city also explained that San Gabriel is dealing with budget problems that have been exacerbated by the following: Sacramento’s decision to dissolve redevelopment agencies, reductions in federal block grant and other funding sources, and increased demands in aging infrastructure and facilities. However, the San Gabriel Police Officers’ Association continues to be critical of the city’s plans for constructing a new police facility and city maintenance faculty without having secured funding to do so. “The city is steadfast on pursuing the construction of these new facilities by increasing parking fees, restructuring the business licensing fee, and increasing the bed tax rate,” said the association via its website at www.sangabrielpoa. com. “Even if these rate increases were enacted, would that be enough to fund such grand expenditures?” Look forward to this being a visible issue on the campaign trail leading up to San Gabriel’s March elections. And remember to keep your vote “out and ready!”

Historic Aztec Hotel

Continued from page 1

Panning Manager Craig Jimenez, there were problems created by and at the bar, which had been at the location for many years. The problems sited were the noise from rock bands that had played on the weekends, and the trash left in the neighborhood by patrons of the establishment. They also commented that there had been many calls to the police department regarding the bar and its patrons. Representative of the new owner asked that they not be punished for the behavior of the prior owners. One of those representatives, John Leung, asked that the Commissioners to allow them to start a new restaurant on “an even playing field” with other businesses. He asked for the opportunity to operate with live entertainment, saying: “Let us prove to you we can make it work.” He pointed out that after meeting with concerned neighbors they had already agreed not to allow patrons to use the patio area, and to keep the door to the patio closed during operating hours so that noise would not spill out toward the neighbors to the north. He also said that they would have a security guard making regular tours of the parking area to ensure patrons were not throwing trash into the neighborhood. He reiterated the point that the staff report had noted that only acoustical music was proposed, specifically, guitars, flutes and keyboards to play mariachi style music and Latin jazz. “We are committed to low key music,” he said. He also pointed out that because of the hotel’s historic designation and the grant received by the

prior owner, the new owner had to get approvals for all changes, not just from the city, but also from the State’s Office of Historic Preservation. As a result of this, Leung said, “We have not earned one dime.” He said the aim was to put in an upscale restaurant with South American or Mexican food. He said that to make it viable, they needed to be able to serve alcohol and to have live entertainment at least on weekends and at Sunday Brunch. Three members of the public spoke to the issue. All spoke in favor of the plans of the new owner. Larry Williams who said he lives directly north of the Aztec commented that “before there was no management.” He said that with active on-site managers, he believed there would not be the problems he had experienced in the past. He went on to praise the new owner and the members of his management team, saying that they had promised to be responsive to their neighbors. Also speaking in favor of approving the CUPs was Jesse Rodriguez who identified himself as an insurance businessman in the area. He explained that he had met with representatives of the new owner and that he believed the proposed new restaurant was one he would patronize. In regard to the past problems at the location, he said “Everybody deserves a second chance.” He also pointed out the restaurant “will bring more money to Monrovia.” The discussion by the members of the Planning Commission made it clear that they realized that the sale of alcohol was necessary for the success of

the business, and they all seemed to favor that CUP. There questions regarding the live music CUP. Commissioner Ann McIntosh asked staff if Karaoke was considered “live music.” According to staff it is not nor are jukeboxes. Commission Carlos Parrague noted that the Aztec Hotel historically had had entertainment. In regard to that he said that the people who moved into the area knew that the hotel existed and that it had entertainment. He also said that the hotel was located on a “public thoroughfare” (Foothill Boulevard) and that the heavily traveled street also created noise.

In the discussion with other Commissioners, Parrague also brought up all the restrictions on the property because of its historic status. He said, “With all the historic restrictions, they need a break.” In general discussion, Commissioners McIntosh and Glen Owens voiced concerns about the less savory history of the place, i.e. its reputation as a “biker bar” and a venue for “wannabe” rock bands. Both questioned whether a trial period of some entertainment was possible. Both mentioned a similar situation with another restaurant in town that had requested live music. Sizemore and Assis-

ness is proposed to be open. This CUP would be for only six months during which time the Aztec was to notify the city, and specifically the Design Review Committee, of the weekends when there was to be live entertainment. The issue of the live entertainment CUP was continued to the December 10 Planning Commission Meeting to allow the staff to prepare the CUP in accordance with the suggestions of the commission. Following the meeting Leung said that he and Chen were pleased with the opportunity to prove that they could be good managers and good neighbors.

They approved the CUP for the sale of alcohol, but directed the city staff to prepare a CUP that would severely limit the live entertainment that would be allowed. The CUP they proposed would allow the owners of the Aztec to have entertainment in the restaurant every Sunday at their proposed Sunday Brunch. In addition, live entertainment would also be allowed once a month on Friday and Saturday during the hours the busi-

One Year Deadline Approaching for Property Owners to Seek Tax Relief from 2011 Wind Storm Damage

-Photo by Terry Miller

The Los Angeles County Office of the Assessor urges property owners who may have been affected by the 2011 wind storms to submit a misfortune/calamity form on or before November 30, 2012. Property owners could receive potential tax relief if related damage amounts to $10,000 or more, including destruction to chimneys or structures by falling trees or

branches. “The Office of the Assessor is ready to provide tax relief information for those property owners who have suffered damage or loss by the 2011 wind storms.” Chief Deputy Assessor Santos Kreimann stated, “State law allows home and business owners to qualify for a temporary reduction in assessed value. Re-assessment could

mean a lower tax bill for the period between damage and repair or rebuilding.” Section 170 of the California Revenue and Taxation Code requires the application form to be submitted within one year of the date of damage. Photographs and any other documentation, such as repair estimates, should accompany the form. Additional information may be obtained by calling the Office of the Assessor’s main office at (213) 974-8658 or district offices in Sylmar (818) 833-6000; Signal Hill (562) 256-1701; Culver City (310) 665-5300; South El Monte (626) 258-6001, or Lancaster (661) 940-6700. Misfortune/calamity forms are available on the assessor’s internet website at http://assessor.lacounty. gov for property owners to fill in, print and then submit by mail.

2011 and later to Afghanistan in July 2012, where he continued to communicate with Santana and DeLeon to arrange for their travel to join him in Afghanistan, according to the complaint. The complaint alleges that Kabir told Santana and Deleon that he had made contacts with individuals who have connections to terrorist organizations. Kabir further said that he would wait for their arrival before departing to a training location in Afghanistan and that, when they arrived, they would meet “the students” and “the professors.” According to the complaint, the term “students” referred to the Taliban and the term “professors” referred to al Qaeda. The complaint alleges that Santana and Deleon told a confidential source working for the FBI, identified in the complaint as the “CS,” that they planned to travel to Afghanistan to engage in “violent jihad.” In addition, the defendants described potential targets for violent attacks, including overseas American military personnel and bases, according to the complaint. Evidence in this case demonstrates that the defendants used the word

“jihad” to refer to armed combat, according to the complaint. According to the complaint, the defendants both discussed the plot among themselves and with the confidential source. The various conversations detail the defendants’ plans to travel overseas to attend terrorist training, as well as to kill American soldiers and others. In one discussion with the FBI confidential source, Santana and Deleon discussed their preferred roles in carrying out attacks. For example, Santana stated that he had experience with firearms and that he wanted to become a sniper. Deleon stated he wanted to be on the front lines with a second choice of explosives. Both men also indicated they were willing to kill an enemy. Defendants Santana, Deleon, and Gojali were apprehended on Friday without incident by members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force and had their initial appearance before a federal magistrate this afternoon in U.S. District Court in Riverside, California. Santana and Deleon were remanded to federal custody and Gojali’s detention hearing was continued to Monday, November 26.

Kabir is in custody in Afghanistan. If convicted, the defendants face a statutory maximum penalty of 15 years in federal prison. This case is a continuing investigation by the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) in Riverside, California. The Riverside JTTF is comprised of members from the following agencies: Riverside County Sheriff’s Office; Riverside Police Department; San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department; Beaumont Police Department; Ontario Police Department; U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HSI); the United States Attorney’s Office; and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. This case will be prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California, with assistance from the Counterterrorism Section of the Justice Department’s National Security Division. A criminal complaint contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty in court.

California Housing Market Continues Strong Performance in October, A.A.R. Reports California’s housing market continued its momentum in October, posting strong year-overyear sales and price gains in nearly every county of the state, the ARCADIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (A.A.R.) reported. “Sales surged to the highest level since May, with demand continuing to be strong across all parts of the state,” said 2012 A.A.R. President Ryan Asao. “Sales were particularly robust in the costal markets, but they also rose significantly in many non-metropolitan areas, as confidence toward the housing market continued to improve. Most counties in the Northern California region, for example, posted double-digit year-over-year sales gains in October.” Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 544,380 units, according to information collected by the California Association of REALTORS® (C.A.R.) from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. Sales in October were up 12.5 percent from a revised 484,050 in September and up 10.2 percent from a revised 493,790 in October 2011. The statewide sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2012 if sales maintained the October pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors

that typically influence home sales. The statewide median price of an existing, singlefamily detached home declined 1.1 percent from September’s $345,000 median price to $341,370 in October. October’s price was up 23 percent from a revised $277,450 recorded in October 2011, marking the eighth consecutive month of annual price increases and the fourth consecutive month of doubledigit annual gains. The year-to-year increase was the largest since May 2010. “Although the statewide median price was off its recent high reached last month, it is not unusual to see an October dip in price as we transition from the peak season to the low season,” said A.A.R. Executive Vice President Andrew Cooper. “The yearover-year price gain, on the other hand, has been accelerating since early 2012, as sales of higherpriced homes continue to improve. With the supply shortage, especially of lower-priced homes, expected to remain an issue in the near future, we will likely see solid year-over-year price gains through the first quarter of next year, as sales of higher-priced homes grow.” Other key facts of C.A.R.’s October 2012 resale housing report include: California’s housing inventory tightened in October, with the Unsold Inventory Index for existing, single-family detached homes dropping

to 3.1 months, down from 3.7 months in September and a revised 5.5 months in October 2011. The index indicates the number of months needed to sell the supply of homes on the market at the current sales rate. A six- to sevenmonth supply is considered normal. Interest rates dipped further in October, with the 30-year fixed-mortgage interest rate averaging 3.38 percent during October 2012, down from 3.47 percent in September, and down from 4.07 percent in October 2011, according to Freddie Mac. Adjustable-mortgage interest rates also edged down in October, averaging 2.59 percent, down from 2.60 percent in September and down from 2.92 percent in October 2011. Homes continued to sell at a faster pace in October, with the median number of days it took to sell a single-family home falling to 38 days in October 2012 from 39.3 days in September and down from a revised 55.1 days for the same period a year ago. Representing local Realtors® in the San Gabriel Valley for 88 years, the ARCADIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (www.TheAAR.com) is one of the oldest trade organizations in CA. The AAR is dedicated to the advancement of professionalism in real estate and is an advocate for private property rights. A.A.R. is headquartered in Arcadia.

MAFA - Give the Gift of Art The Monrovia Association of Fine Arts and Paint ‘n’ Play Gallery are hosting a Holiday Art Sale and reception on Saturday, November 24, 2012.

can brings a fresh perspective to this great event.” Coleman will also be donating one-of-a kind renderings of this historic occasion to the Monrovia School system, to be displayed in the local schools to inspire students to get involved in science. “In addition, since this is Small Business Saturday, we have organized an Art Walk, featuring a dozen other local artists and their work,” Lisa Barrios, owner of the gallery said. “We at MAFA want to let people know that there are other options for holiday gifts than offered by the big box stores.” “By shopping small, you are supporting local merchants and artists. People like you and me instead

of a corporate giant,” Barrios added. “It’s a chance to ‘Give the Gift of Art’… A chance to give a loved one something unique…. Something they can’t find anywhere else.” The Art Walk and Reception will feature live entertainment, refreshments and demonstrations, as well as an opportunity to purchase the offerings of local painters, photographers, jewelers, and sculptors.

El Monte Dedicates Centennial Liberty Garden A garden planted around the Lady Liberty statue outside El Monte’s City Hall was dedicated November 15 as one of the events celebrating the city’s centennial. The garden was designed by Councilwoman Norma Macias and the work accomplished with the help of El Monte residents and volunteers. Macias said that flowers in patriotic colors were specially selected to accompany this statue that the years have turned into a city landmark. The 23-foot, one-ton fiberglass Lady Liberty was donated to El Monte by Dr. Jiiang T. Wang, a Taiwanese immigrant. It was placed at its current location and dedicated in 1987, on the 75th year anniversary of the city. Up until now, the statue had been surrounded only by “a patch of grass,” said Macias. Now, thanks to the donation of Jim Coiner, of Coiner Nursery, Lady Liberty is instead encircled by a beautiful garden. “I graduated from El Monte High School in

Pasadena Certifies EIR for NFL Use Continued from page 1

use the Rose Bowl Stadium. The City Council voted 7-1 in favor of certifying the EIR and approving a first reading of the amended ordinance. A second reading is needed to finalize the action and a second reading will be scheduled for the Council’s Dec. 3 meeting. The vote took place after more than five hours of reports by staff and testimony from about 48 people who spoke at the meeting. About 125 people attend the hearing that began Monday night, Nov. 19. The amendment would allow the City to be able to negotiate with an NFL team to host home games at the

Rose Bowl Stadium for no more than five years if, and when, an NFL team moves to the Los Angeles area while a permanent stadium is being constructed elsewhere. The Arroyo Seco Public Lands Ordinance previously restricted large events at the stadium with 20,000 or more attending to 12 such large events per year, absent special findings. Of those 12 events, seven are contractually reserved for University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) football games, plus two post-season collegiate games, including the Rose Bowl game. The proposed amendment to the ordinance

would allow up to 13 additional NFL events per year for no more than five years. The additional events would only be allowed if the City enters into an agreement with an NFL team to lease the Rose Bowl Stadium. No NFL team has been identified as moving to Los Angeles and the City and the Rose Bowl Operating Company have not begun negotiations to lease the stadium to an NFL team.

Alverno Varsity Volleyball Celebrates First CIF Championship Title in School History Alverno became CIF Division 5AA Champions after Defeating Pomona Catholic

For the first time in school history, the Alverno High School Varsity Volleyball can claim the title “CIFSS Champions.” The Jaguars volleyball team brought home the title after defeating Pomona Catholic 25-15, 2725, 25-22 in the Saturday, November 17 Division 5AA final at Cypress College. The Varsity Jaguars, league champions of the Horizon League, ended their season with a league record of 8-0 and an overall record of 20-3-0 after their win on Saturday against Pomona Catholic. The Jaguars, who did not lose a set during the entire playoffs, are set to play Calvin Christian of Escondido on Tuesday, November 20 in the first round of the state playoffs. Varsity Jaguar members include seniors Raylene Acevedo, Jessica Hamilton, Sydney Hernandez-Barber, Alexandra Overstreet, and Lauren Tunzi; juniors Hayley Barretta, Rachel Cavender, Asia Chapa, and Taylor Valenzuela; sophomores Izaura Avitia, Madison Hernandez-Barber, Raine Orozco, Alexia Palomina, Alexandria Peterson; and freshman Natalie Hernandez-Barber.

GROUP EVENTS: Everybody's having fun −for some it's hoisting a 12 lb. bowling ball, for others, it's an 8 oz. chilled martini.

Back: Coach Chris Guzman, Alexia Palomino, Natalie Hernandez-Barber, Hayley Barretta, Lauren Tunzi, Coach Brent Fabbri, Raine Orozco, Rachel Cavender, Taylor Valenzuela, Izaura Avitia, and Coach Ricardo Dávila.

The Jaguars have enjoyed a highly successful season that included 55 sets played, 1,642 attacks, 631 kills, 1,215 serves, and 964 digs. Seniors Jessica Hamilton, Alexandra Overstreet, and Sydney HernandezBarber lead the team in attacks, kills, serves, and digs throughout the season. Senior Lauren Tunzi, a strong defensive player, attacked and blocked more than 218 balls for the Jaguars. Finally, Asia Chapa rounds out the top team players with 104 attacks, 248 serves including 38 aces, 136 digs, and an astounding 501 assists as the team setter. Although Ham-

ilton, Overstreet, Hernandez-Barber, and Tunzi will be graduating, Chapa will be back on the Jaguar court next season. “For the first time in school history, Alverno can claim a CIF Championship in volleyball,” said Ann Gillick, Head of School. “We are so proud of everything these women have accomplished both on and off the court. Not only are each of them talented athletes but scholars, leaders, actors, and so much more. They are true examples of Alverno’s mission of empowering each young woman to be exactly the person she wants to be.”
