Flashing lights. Raucous, rollicking music. and of course, the thunderous rolling of numerous bowling balls down 31 polished lanes. Where are you? Enjoying a night out at 300 Pasadena. 300 Pasadena cheerfully invites one and all—whether for just a casual night out with friends or a holiday party for the whole office—to “turn off your brain off” and relax in their establishment. With a plush lounge, full service bar, and a professional wait staff to do all the excessive walking, all you’re left to do is bowl away. 3545 E.

Gold Winner - Real Estate Agent

Thank you, and we will strive to continue to deserve your loyalty and trust.

Imy Dulake, of the Arcadia Coldwell Banker Real Estate office, was voted one of our top Real Estate Agent this year. She has been a leading sales person for 27 years, and has operated effectively in both up and down real estate markets, having sold over 1,000 properties in the San Gabriel Valley and greater Los Angeles areas. Imy brings vast experience representing sellers and buyers with residential real estate, investment properties, apartment units and commercial property. “She has a strong work ethic and pays attention to details,” explains branch manager Claudia Storey. To us, that sounds like a good old-fashioned recipe for success. (626) 821-1280 - www.imydulake.com

e Hope you enjoy this week’s newspaper which is our annual tip-of-the-hat to local tradesmen and women, selected by you our readers, as tops in their chosen profession. Due to the volume of work involved in compiling the information, preparing the layout and taking the photos for this special edition, we’ve had to forego the usual look in addition to eliminating some of this week’s local news including the police blotters. We hope you recognize this is a once a year homage to you, the reader, for giving us the opportunity to shine the Beacon (if you’ll pardon our shameless plug) on your favorite enterprise. Rest assured, next week we will return to our full coverage of local news and events that you have come to expect from us these past 16 years. Thank you for your continued support and readership.

“It was incredible. ” Carol B. Pearson recalls the moment she held the first published folio of Shakespeare’s plays. Access to this rare book was but one of many great thrills of assisting scholars at The Huntington Library for the last 50 years. And when it came time to retire, it was access to all the delights of Pasadena – the museums, theatres and bookstores – that attracted Carol to Villa Gardens, a full-service retirement community that takes care of the mundane, so you can pursue the extraordinary.

A love of books transported her through the ages.

A love of Pasadena led her to Villa Gardens.

Gold Winner - Restaurant, Outdoor Patio Dining

Bringing a small-town feel to a nationwide bank chain isn’t an easy task. But the tellers and managers at your local Bank of America have done admirably well. Besides providing every option a homeowner, business owner, or student could possibly need in banking, Bank of America is keen to invest in the local community. “When you see others succeed, especially people in your own neighborhood, it’s easier to believe that we can all do amazing things. Through lending, investing and giving, we’re proud to help fuel this progress. We hope you’ll take a moment to follow these inspiring stories, share them, and come back to see the power of partnering locally.” Many such stories are available on their website (also, strangely but helpfully, nutrition tips!) but we all know our local Bank of America best for the smiles on the faces behind the counter who ask cheerfully every time we walk in: “What can I assist you with today?” Monrovia Branch 230 S. Myrtle Ave. Monrovia (800) 432-1000 - www.bankofamerica.com

The claim, “You can eat at Matt Denny’s once a week for a year and not have tried everything on the menu!” sounds like a good challenge to us. Matt Denny’s provides the locals a great place to hang out, enjoy a frothy beverage, and watch the games on Saturdays and Sundays. With entrees ranging from burgers to steaks to fresh fish and self –proclaimed “really unique specialties”, Matt Denny’s has something for everyone to enjoy. So please, enjoy! 145 E.

“The public often thinks that interior design is a glamorous and easy profession—but the truth is that it’s a very technical and demanding interaction of resources to get the desired design done!” Words spoken with passion by Jan, owner of Designs2 interior design studio. For Jan, learning is an ongoing process, and has been these past 28 years she’s been in business in the Los Angeles area. “I love a hands-on approach: space planning, color and fabric selections, budgets, and so on. I’m there throughout the job coordinating all phases, including scheduling workmen, installations, accessories, and of course the final overview.” 55 W Sierra Madre Blvd. # 100, Sierra Madre (626)-355-7139

We like seafood. And we like Cameron’s Seafood, as presided over by proprietor Pete Gallanis. For over 21 years, the freshest fish and seafood selections in the valley have been swimming straight to Pasadena for us to eat. Regulars at Cameron’s are truly regulars—some of them have been dining there since it opened! Pete watches closely to make sure the fare is fresh, high-quality, and flavorful. “Some of my regulars want their halibut the way they’ve had it every week since 1990. But we aim to keep trying new recipes and presentations as well.” And for the one in your party who doesn’t care for seafood, Cameron’s has “landlubber” dishes available, including a kid’s menu. So there’s every reason for you to visit this Pasadena landmark soon! 1978 E. Colorado Blvd. Pasadena (626) 793-3474 - www.camerons4fish.com

Immaculate Conception Catholic Church Gold Winner - Gold Place of Worship

Readers for voting us #1 Gift Shop and #1 Specialty Food Store!! This is our 15th year of carrying award winning foods and gifts and we are grateful you appreciate us!

THANK YOU

The friendly sight of Immaculate Conception Church’s Christmas tree lot will be visible on Shamrock Avenue in Monrovia this year. A Roman Catholic Parish of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Immaculate Conception was founded in 1904 to serve the religious needs of people of the San Gabriel area with their celebrations of Liturgies and Sacraments. But visual evidence tells us these are not all they provide, if the drive by the church every weekend is to be believed—weddings, quinceneras, and funerals overflow the courtyard with people. “We offer religious education…we currently have over 30 organizations and ministries in English and Spanish reaching out to the people of our community.” An established and welcome steeple in the community. 740 S.

Wells Fargo Gold Winner - Bank

626 792 4441 · redwhitebluezz.com bm 1-4 vert march 2012.indd 1 3/8/12 5:11 PM

For a large bank like Wells Fargo, with branches located all across the United States, let alone dozens of offices here in the San Gabriel Valley, providing customer service is always a front line issue. And Wells Fargo has risen to the challenge where so many other big bank chains have either failed or simply not tried to provide a high level of customer satisfaction. When you enter a Wells Fargo branch anywhere in the San Gabriel Valley (or in the nation!), you are greeted by a well-groomed and friendly banker. When it’s busy they will offer to help you on your way, and make sure to staff extra tellers to keep things moving. It’s this unexpected level of care that sets this financial institution apart from others in the same field. They understand that they too are made up of people, with lives and faults and challenges, and so are their customers. Understanding where customers come from, they give them the service that the bankers themselves would like to have. The Golden Rule serves Wells Fargo of San Gabriel Valley well in exceeding the needs of their customers, and they will continue to provide excellent service. (800) 869-3557 - www.wellsfargo.com

Methodist Hospital Gold Winner - Hospital

Their mission: to provide high-quality healing services while caring for patients’ emotional and spiritual needs and enabling them to achieve health for life. Their method: beginning in 1903, Methodist Hospital of Southern California operated with five beds in a two-story house on Hewett Street in downtown Los Angeles. Today, they have a 220-acre campus in the Arcadia Civic Center, with new additions being built as recently as 2011. The towering structure houses state-of-the-art operating rooms, emergency ward, psychiatric units, outpatient care, and even one of the first daycare facilities to exist in the corporate United States. Methodist Hospital, besides being a general hospital that can handle almost any case, has special areas of expertise, including a STEMI (heart attack) Receiving Center, a Stroke Center with numerous awards, and a Bariatric (weight loss) Surgery Center of Excellence. Patients and visitors find themselves with views of Arcadia Golf Course to the East and Santa Anita Racetrack to the West, with Methodist Hospital at the center of the city of Arcadia both in place and heart. 300 W.

Pet owners know that a good veterinarian is more valuable than rubies. Someone who cares for a beloved animal’s health is practically part of the family. So, please welcome to the family Dr. Sylvia Domotor, veterinarian extraordinaire. Dr. Domotor’s Animal House opened its doors in 1996, and has been caring for companion animals every day since. “After having worked several years in Pasadena and Monrovia, I was deeply committed to the community and my clients and patients,” says Dr. Domotor. “I would not have considered establishing my practice anywhere but in Monrovia.” The doctors and exceptional staff strive not just to offer sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus helping clients to have the enjoyment of their animal companions for a maximum number of years. Some good advice includes, “Have your pet checked up regularly,” so drop into Dr. Domotor’s and meet caring vets and assistants and add them to the family. 135 W.

Melissa Uribe, professionally trained in makeup artistry, permanent makeup artistry, and eyelash extensions, owned Skin & Body Oasis from 1996 to 2008. Then she decided to go from a larger facility to a boutique spa for a more personalized spa with better service. “I love my job! There is nothing better than making a client look and feel better about themself.” Thus, Spa Botanicals was born and raised in Monrovia. Comprised of the perfect storm of Melissa, Brittany Bateson (Marinello Beauty School graduate), Nikki Flores (Airbrush specialized makeup artist), and Lauren Garcia (Certified massage therapist), Spa Botanicals prides itself on meeting and exceeding client needs—which leads to most of their clientele being brought in by wordof-mouth, and of course, repeat customers. Consider this your whispered word-of-mouth reference, and call Spa Botanicals for a soothing appointment, or just to browse their retail area. Happy relaxing! 128 S.

HERE’S TO 15 MORE YEARS OF WORK HEADED YOUR WAY.” Throughout the 23 years we’ve been in business, we have received hundreds of cards and letters from our customers. Some of them were just learning to write in cursive like 8 year old Tudor Williams, who penciled a letter, “Thank you framing my picture, it looks really nice.” Greg Fujita took the time to pen the note quoted above.

It has been a pleasure and a joy serving you. We look forward to working with you in the years ahead.

CTA-SS purchased a 14 room house at 842 Villa Street for $10,000 in 1933. Over the years a full campus with beautiful gardens grew up.

Chang Thai Bistro blends the best of the traditional with the best of the contemporary. The characteristics of Thai food consist of a unique balance of five basic flavors: sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and, of course, the spicy pepper. Many people cite the hot, fiery peppers as the most distinctive flavor of Thai food; however, it is a subtle blend of spices that mark a gifted Thai chef. And Gof Chullanan, owner of Chang Thai since 1995, knows his Thai chefs. “While it is true that Thai natives typically prefer spicy foods, milder blends of spices can be created without sacrificing the delicate balance of unique Thai flavor. Our goal is to create the ideal Thai meal: a harmonious blend of the spicy, the subtle, the sweet, and the sour that is meant to be equally satisfying to eye, nose, and palate.” Spicy or not, here we come. 614 S.

Contractors Carpet Center’s exclusive installers have a cumulative work experience of 350 years. Headed by owner Ed Adams, who has served in the industry working everything from installer to retail merchant, Contractor Carpet Center offers everything needed for your carpet. Adams cites his company’s vast work experience as key to the business’s success. “We have done work for two past presidents: Nixon and Ford,” Adams said, “We have done work in the top three jockeys’ homes: Shoemaker, Pincay and Pifor. It’s obvious to us that you can pay any price for a good piece of material, but if you get a bad installation, you’ve got nothing.” Adams states that his company specialized in intricate, highly detailed work. The company axiom is “a man who works with his hands is a laborer, a man who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman, and a man who works with his hands, head, and heart is an artist.” “We try to live by that axiom.” At Contractors Carpet Center, quality men who install do make all the difference. 622 E.

Eyes are windows to the soul. On the flipside, they are our windows to the world out there. And since September 2007, Dr. Andrew Gore has been providing San Gabriel Valley with optimal eye. He aims to be the most thorough and high-quality optometrist, and strongly opposes the “factory mentality so common in health care nowadays”. Each individual patient is treated as a family member (in fact, it’s company policy!) by Dr. Gore and his staff. Plus, he provides great brands of eyewear—check them out during the frame sale to be held on December 6th, 7th, and 8th. No one’s more stylish than with a great pair of glasses. Trust us; we all wear them. Office hours are Monday-Friday 10:00AM-2:00PM and 3:00PM-6:00PM but beware—exams are by appointment only! 301 E. Colorado Blvd. Suite 528 Pasadena (626) 796-5533 - www.andrewgoreod.com

This traditional neighborhood drugstore has served Sierra Madre and its surrounding area for more than a century. Best Buy Drugs—where old world customer service meets the latest in health care—opened in 1910 to provide a variety of vitamins, herbs and supplemental health services. And they still do. Pharmacist Paul Mansour, a certified clinical nutritionist, has owned Best Buy Drugs for 15 years. He moved with his family to Sierra Madre from Granada Hills ten years ago because he enjoys working in the family-friendly community. “We provide old-fashioned deliveries for homebound seniors and moms with sick kids,” Mansour said. “We know our customers by name and they know us. I’m just Paul, and that’s how everybody knows me.” Stop by Best Buy Drugs to give Paul a hello from 9:00AM to 6:00PM Monday through Friday, or 9:00AM to 1:00PM on Saturday. 29 N.

Tom Dugan, owner of California Wine & Cheese, knows his wine. His wife and coowner Janet knows her cheese. Together, they created a high-class taste and sensation bar, with rich red and golden walls and local artist’s work displayed proudly. Entering California Wine & Cheese is like entering a shoppe in Europe. It has a classical, multi-cultural feel that is largely helped by the fact that the wines and cheeses it offers are from all over the globe. Patrons are knowledgeable and friendly, whether devotees or dilettantes, reflecting the attitude of the owners. With California Wine & Cheese, said Tom, “Our whole focus is on people exploring wines and comparing wines and hoping they discover one they’ve never discovered before.” Tom and Janet offer a helping hand to anyone who wishes for a taste of Wine and Cheese, and say their favorite thing about Monrovia is the community. “They’re friendly and they seem to know each other,” he said. “I jokingly refer to it as Mayberry, but in the best sense of the word.” Wine-lovers, get to know California Wine & Cheese, and relax like an international traveler right in Monrovia. 115 W.

Attention to detail and customer satisfaction make Fasching’s Car Wash in Arcadia our Reader’s Choice for number one car wash in Arcadia and beyond. Owner George Fasching opened the business 34 years ago, and has seen the car wash industry go through many changes—from nylon bristles to the soft, triple cloth wash system designed to protect and clean client’s vehicles in the best, state-ofthe-art manner. Using quality soaps and waxes for washing cars, and offering other services such as interior cleaning, windshield and paint-less dent repair, Fasching’s customer-based philosophy also means paying attention to the needs of its clients, which he does by offering specials such as “Pay for nine, get the tenth wash free” and “Two dollars off all washes on Tuesdays”. Plus, free cups of coffee or cappuccinos are offered while clients browse through the in-business store, which is full of automotive products and gift items. Fasching’s Car Wash hours are 8:30AM to 5:30PM Monday through Saturday (closed from 1:00PM – 1:30PM for lunch) and 9:00AM to 3:00PM on Sunday. Don’t forget to grab that complimentary coffee! 425 N.

Almansor Court

Gold Winner - Sunday Brunch

We are honored and grateful for your warm acknowledgement. May God bless you and your families Since 1986, Almansor Court has been serving the community—that’s 25 years of offering the premiere facility with which to meet the needs of all its clients. Offers eight banquet and conference rooms, some of which overlook Lake Alhambra and the Alhambra Golf Course. But the reason they’re on this list is their fantastic Champagne Sunday Brunch, which caught our readers’ attention. Held every week without fail, Champagne Sunday is a special occasion in itself. But that doesn’t mean Almansor Court doesn’t also have special occasions—they’re also known for their holiday brunches, buffets, and as a popular meeting planner’s perfect package. Hours vary from 6:00AM to 3:00PM daily, but they are closed on Christmas—which means you have some 364 days to plan that special event at the lush, awardwinning Almansor Court. 700 S.

Gold Winner - Wellness Center

The Health Advantage Center, rightly enough, set the goal of providing Southern California with a resource to regain and maintain health, naturally and effectively. According to our readers, they have succeeded. Specializing in chiropractic, acupuncture, x-ray, supplements, physiotherapy, nutrition, orthotics, and patient education, this Wellness Center clearly has a lot to offer. Since March 2009, owners Dr. Miwa Yoshida and Dr. Dennis Buckley have been providing these services. The secret to their success? “We do this by individualized attention, as everyone deserves to be treated like a celebrity. To us, you are the reason we exist so our philosophy is to be available, friendly, trustworthy and, as one patient told us, ‘You do what my doctors don’t do; you listen, you know me, you respect me and you do not waste my time!’” Stronger recommendations do not come easily after that, so we’ll leave you here. Drop in Monday to Friday from 9:00AM-12:00PM and 2:00PM-6:00PM, or Saturday 9:00AM-12:00PM. 1450 N. Lake Ave. Pasadena (626) 798-7805 - www.health-advantage.net

Mission Framing, independently owned by Helga and Olaf Weidekat, has been serving San Gabriel Valley from their intimate little shop in South Pasadena for 23 years. With a loyal customer base ranging from individuals, to families, to corporate accounts, their motto is “no job too small.” “We love making your special item look great,” says Helga. They are total perfectionists, and it shows in the minute detail of every cut, and corner, and spotless glass in every framing project. They have framed—by estimate—over 1 million of their clients, and they don’t intend to quit anytime soon. 1501 Mission St. South Pasadena (626) 799-3445

Cindy De Mesa Photography Based in Monrovia but willing to roam the entire Los Angeles area by appointment only, Cindy takes pleasure in connecting with people and making them feel comfortable during photography sessions. She likes to keep photo shoots very lighthearted, so her subjects have fun and feel great in an easy-going environment. “Working with people of all ages, shapes, colors, and sizes makes my job a joy, and I will continue doing photography for a long, long time.” When asked what her secret to success is, Cindy replied: “Keep it simple. Do what you love, and make sensible business decisions.” We’re sure being able to capture that squirmy photo-shy nephew with a big grin on his face has a lot to do with it, as well.

Love your pet? So do Mark and Briana Markese. How do we know? Because they opened Super Pets seven years ago in Temple City to provide you with a full service pet store! Briana tells us, “This is our family business. Mark grew up working for his parents in their pet stores and always dreamed of having his own one day. This store is the result of that dream and we are very proud of it.” With customer service at their heart and a large store with huge selection at their disposal, Super Pets and crew go the extra mile to insure a good experience while you shop with them. Open Monday through Saturday 9:00AM-9:00PM and Sunday 10:00AM-7:00PM. And don’t forget that kitty or doggie sweater for Christmas! Super Pets also offers a wide variety of animal treats, if your pet refuses to look silly in a sweater—ours does! 9403 Las Tunas Dr. Temple City (626) 237-0715 - www.superpetsonline.com

Cool stuff. Low prices. Sunglasses, belts, suspenders, bowties, nail polish, Angry Bird, Domo and Hello Kitty tchotchkes? How are we supposed to resist suspenders, much less bowties, for only $2.00? The answer is that we can’t. We really can’t. Several Christmas stocking-stuffers will be bought at SIX 2 SIX. Owners Brian Germany and Luis Lemus, upon opening in Old Town Monrovia in March 2010, did not know what to expect, but knew they wanted to create a cool, fun place with high energy and excellent customer service for the entire family—and the youth! Recently relocated to 522 S. Myrtle Avenue, a “bigger and better location,” SIX 2 SIX continues to provide the Old Town community with stuff, things, gadgets, gizmos, thingamabobs, collectables, and just plain “cool stuff”. Visit them Monday through Thursday and Saturday from 10:30AM-8:00PM, Friday at 10:00AM-10:00PM, and Sunday 10:30AM-7:00PM, and don’t forget the bowtie. 522 S. Myrtle Ave. Monrovia (626) 359-6262

Lauren Saracione launched her career as a fitness trainer after high school 12 years ago, learning Pilates and working for Ron Fletcher (who studied under Joseph and Clara Pilates). “I’ve always loved Pilates, but felt there was something missing,” says Lauren. “I spent years exploring other forms of exercise, and out of that I created my own ‘Pilates Barbell Club Five by Seven’ workout.” The program combines five barbell lifts, and seven Pilates movements. “I have focused on working with women,” though the program is not gender specific. “In January I am opening PBC up to men too, so come one, come all!”

Budget Blinds of San Gabriel Valley brings their window covering direct to their clients’ homes. “People have hectic lifestyles today,” says owner John Sun. “By coming direct to the home, we help save people time and money, while providing custom fit and styled window coverings.” By bringing the showroom to the customer’s windows, they eliminate the guesswork of choosing the right size, style and color. Budget Blinds works with leading manufacturers and provides a vast array of window coverings including blinds, shades, awnings and window film, all professionally measured and installed.

Practice Safety On Train Platforms Now that Metro Rail is expanding to most corners of the county, be sure you know how to stay safe. Always stand away from the edge of platform; don’t skate or ride your bike on the platform, stairs or escalators; and always watch the gap between the edge of the platform and train.

Annie Niemetschek, owner of K-9 Clips, has been grooming professionaly for over 12 years. Years of experience is a nice feature, but we wondered what motivates Annie to keep doing such a terrific job with the pets she makes beautiful? Simply this: Annie has always loved animals. “As long as I can remember I have always wanted to save them and bring them home; and I still do,” she smiles. She has built a grooming facility where pets feel comfortable and safe and cared for (she even provides a dedicated place for them to “do their business” if necessary!) Fully certified and located in the lower level of Dr. Domotor’s Animal House Veterinary Hospital, this is a place where your family’s best friends will be cared for as if they were Annie’s own pets. (Careful she doesn’t try to take them home herself!) 135 W. Foothill Blvd. Monrovia (626) 358-5544

NEW* Guitar Classes! Cage fighting, ultimate fighting, and mixed martial arts are currently experiencing what we in the business call a “boom”. So, 3rd-degree black-belt VincentMarco Duchetta in the year 2000 opened Ring of Fire Martial Arts Academy. Vincent and Monique Duchetta specialize in teaching a comprehensive and effective system of self-defense and physical fitness. Named on a plane trip back from Osaka, Japan after a competition performed in front of 10,000 spectators, Mr. Duchetta thought the name because he was taking certain arts from the Pacific Rim also known as the “Ring of Fire”—including but not limited to Korean Hapkido, Japanese Shotokan, Filipino Kali, Thai Muy Thai, and Brazilian Jui-Jitsu (yes, we know it’s in South America). With almost thirty years of solid fighting experience, Mr. Duchetta has much to offer students. “In essence, you don’t have to be a fighter to train like one.” But he’s trained people for karate tournaments, grappling tourneys, and professional MMA careers, so if fighting is the goal, you know where to go! 310 S. 1st Ave. Arcadia (626) 445-7072 - www.fightitkickboxing.com

The purpose of the amendments is to allow home occupations as an incidental, accessory use in the R-1 (Single-Family Residential), R-2 (Light Multiple Residential), R-3 (Medium Multiple Residential), and RC-MUDO (Residential/Commercial Mixed Use Development Overlay) zoning districts. The regulations and procedures set forth in Municipal Code Amendment 12-01 are intended to ensure that home occupations are compatible with the character of City of Rosemead’s residential neighborhoods. The regulations are designed to ensure that approved home occupations will not disrupt, become a nuisance, disturb, or modify the character of the residential areas within the City of Rosemead. On November 19, 2012, the City of Rosemead Planning Commission conducted a duly noticed public hearing. Upon hearing all testimonies for the public, the Commission recommended approval of this request to City Council. ENVIRONMENTAL DETERMINATION: An Initial Study was undertaken to determine if the proposed project may have a significant effect on the environment. The Initial Study was prepared and completed in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) guidelines. On the basis of the Initial Study, the City of Rosemead has concluded that the project would have a less than significant impact on the environment and has therefore, prepared a Draft Negative Declaration (ND). The ND reflects the independent judgment of the City as a lead agency per CEQA guidelines. The project site is not on a list compiled pursuant to Government Code section 65962.5. The proposed project is not considered a project of statewide, regional or area-wide significance and would not affect highways or other facilities under the jurisdiction of the State of California Department of Transportation. The Negative Declaration and Initial Study were distributed for a 20-day public review and comment period from October 29, 2012 to November 19, 2012. Written comments should be received before December 11, 2012. Comments should be sent to: Planning Division, 8838 East Valley Boulevard, Rosemead, CA 91770, Attention: Michelle G. Ramirez, Community Development Director. Pursuant to Government Code Section 65009 (b), if this matter is subsequently challenged in court, the challenge may be limited to only those issues raised at the public hearing described in this notice or in written correspondence delivered to the City of Rosemead at, or prior to, the public hearing. The Negative Declaration and other information pertinent to the above item are on file at the City of Rosemead’s Planning Division.

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

Monrovia Gears Up for the Season The holiday spirit is alive and well in Monrovia. While the shopping season began just after Thanksgiiving, the Christmas season gets into full swing next Thursday with the annual tree lighting in Library Park followed by the Holiday Parade up Myrtle Avenue. City Dignitaries will light the city Christmas tree at 6 p.m. Last year the wonderful old deodar which had served as the city’s Christmas tree for many years, fell in the wind storm which ravages the area last year just before the holidays. Home Depot has graciously given the city a new tree. The parade, the theme of which is “All that Glitter is Gold” will begin at 7 p.m. It will start at Myrtle and Chestnut and march up Myrtle to Library Park. This year, the Grand Marshal will be Kim Rodhe, Monrovia’s own Olympic Gold Medalist. The fun will continue next weekend at the Library which will “Ring in the Holiday Spirit on Saturday, December 8 from 1 – 3 p.m. with festive classiBMI EPS.indd 1

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.
