El Monte City Council Recognizes Winners of Gingerbread House Contest BY DENA BURROUGHS At the meeting on December 18, the El Monte City Council recognized the residents who participated in the holiday gingerbread contest and won the three top prizes. Leslie Zapata Lopez was awarded the first prize and received a 50” Magnavox TV. At the meeting with her family, she said that their gingerbread house was a two-week project in which the whole family participated. Even the little one, a young boy that at the meeting was carried in the arms of his father, “helped by eating the cookie scraps,” she joked. Councilwoman Norma Macias, who presented Zapata Lopez with a recognition signed by the entire council, said that getting families to work together in precisely such a way was the original intention of the contest. Gidley School’s teacher Beverly Davila attended the meeting with a few of her students. Although their gingerbread house creation did not place in the top three, Macias wanted the teacher to tell her story. “We were just hoping to win third place,” said Davila, who teaches to a special needs class, “because we wanted the Kindle Fire.” Macias said she did not Please see page 4

The final number included all choirs and music by the Wind Ensemble. -Photo by Dena Burroughs

On Sunday, December 16, the Arroyo High School Performing Arts Department presented its Winter Concert, a program during which parents and the community were invited to enjoy the choirs, bands, and orchestras that this year gathered the talent of over 420 students. During the “Chamber Singers” portion of the concert, Choral Music Director Jennifer Stanley announced

that two of the group’s members, Raul Delcid and Ben Mercado, were accepted to the 2013 California AllState Honor Choir and will be participating in March of 2013 in its “Mixed” and “Men” choirs respectively. The “Wind Ensemble” was joined by Sgt. Roger Cobian, who provided vocals to the group’s performance of David Foster’s “Grown-Up Christmas List.” Cobian, besides being part of the El

Monte Police Department, is involved in the music department at Citrus College and often sings the National Anthem at various city events in the area. The Drama Department presented a Christmas medley geared towards global warming awareness, and a portion of the concert’s tickets were to be donated to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

HSI’s National Search for ‘Jane Doe’ Ends with Arrest of Florida Woman

Minor Victim Identified, Woman Faces Federal Child Pornography Charges The nationwide search for a “Jane Doe” suspected child pornographer, by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), ended with the arrest of an Okaloosa County, Fla., woman on federal charges for child pornography production. Corine Danielle Motley, 25, was arrested by HSI Pensacola special agents and Northwest Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force members late Wednesday evening, hours after HSI issued a public appeal for assistance to identify “Jane Doe.” “The quick identification of the victim and suspect in this case demonstrates the power of the press, social media and the general public in helping solve these cases,” said ICE Director John Morton. “Literally hours after we asked the public for their assistance in identifying Jane Doe, a tip came in that led to her identification and arrest. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that, due to these efforts, a child is now safe and her tormentor now in custody.” HSI’s Child Exploitation Investigations Unit’s Victim Identification Program obtained a “Jane Doe” arrest warrant Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia for the suspect and issued a news release with photos seeking the public’s help to identify

the suspect, after all other investigative leads had been exhausted. According to the complaint, Motley is believed to have produced at least one long-form child pornography video featuring herself engaging in explicit sexual conduct with a 4 to 6-year-old victim. HSI special agents received an investigative referral from the Danish National Police, after the video was downloaded by law enforcement officers in Denmark. The video was referred to HSI as Danish police believed that the video had most likely been produced in the United States. HSI submitted the material to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, the national clearinghouse for child sexual exploitation material. The center determined that the victim had not yet been identified or rescued. Investigators believe that the video was posted on the Internet for the first time Nov. 27. The Department of Justice’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section supported the efforts of HSI during this investigation. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and the Northwest Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force also provided assistance. Participating members of the task force included: the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, the Walton County Sheriff’s Office and the Pensacola Police

Department. This investigation is part of Operation Predator, a nationwide HSI initiative to protect children from sexual predators, including those who travel overseas for sex with minors, Internet child pornographers, criminal alien sex offenders and child sex traffickers. HSI encourages the public to report suspected child predators and any suspicious activity through its toll-free hotline at 1-866-DHS2-ICE or by completing its online tip form. Both are staffed around the clock by investigators. Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may be reported to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, an Operation Predator partner, via its toll-free 24-hour hotline, 1-800-THE-LOST. The case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida.

Bomb Squad Renders Suspicious Package Safe Package Contained Marijuana

Arcadia Police Officers responded to the report of a suspicious package at the Westfield Santa Anita Mall on December 20, 2012 at approximately 0952 hours. The package was located and a safety perimeter was established. The Los Angeles County

Bomb Squad was requested for assistance and arrived on scene at approximately 1055 hours. A short time later the Bomb Squad rendered the package safe and determined it was not an explosive device. It was determined that the package contained what

appeared to be marijuana. No suspect(s) were arrested and there were no injuries to officers or bystanders. The investigation into the origin of the package is ongoing by Arcadia Police Officers.

Open Letter A Message from California’s Top Homeland Security Advisor & State Superintendent of Public Instruction The following letter was received by Beacon Media from State Superintendent of Education Tom Torlakson in an effort to help communities and schools throughout California deal locally with the tragedy in Connecticut last Friday. No words can adequately express the overwhelming grief that we are all feeling after the horrific tragedy that unfolded at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut this past week. Our hearts are heavy as we think of the innocence of the lives lost and the valiant efforts of teachers, school leaders and public safety professionals to protect them. We are continuing to keep the families and loved ones of those lost in our thoughts and prayers. And, as leaders for California’s public instruction and homeland security agencies, we want to reassure everyone in our education community that the safety of our students and staff remains our highest priority. Regardless of what motivated the shooting in Connecticut, it’s important for all of us to take another close look at the safety plans and

security procedures we have in place to reduce the risks on our school campuses and in our workplaces. We know that many of you are already working closely with your district leaders, campus safety teams and local law enforcement agencies to ensure we are maintaining the safest learning environments possible. We applaud you for keeping safety a top priority. Through your combined efforts, many of you are exemplary leaders of safety planning and preparedness and have readily shared those best practices with the education community. We are writing you today to emphasize the importance of taking the time to talk with your staff and leadership about school safety in light of this tragic event. Whether it’s a review of your security procedures or special outreach to teachers, parents

and staff, any steps you can take now to be prepared for any emergency are extremely important. Some of the most heinous plots to do harm to our schools and communities have been thwarted by the simple actions of alert and prepared individuals. The California Emergency Management Agency (Cal EMA) has compiled a range of resources from the federal, state and local level to help you. These are only a starting point to help find what might help you stay on top of the best practices in school safety and preparedness. You can find those resources here: http://bit.ly/schoolsafe or on the Cal EMA website at www.calema.ca.gov. Thank you for your continued dedication to educational excellence and the safety of all California’s staff, students and parents. TOM

Now Asks for Armed Police at Every School By Terry Miller Despite swelling nationwide contemplation on the importance of gun control after Friday’s mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school, the National Rifle Association’s silence had been deafening. That is, until now. The National Rifle Association on Tuesday broke its silence on last Friday’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., saying they want to “help make sure this never happens again.” As of Monday evening the largest and most powerful gun-rights lobbying group in the U.S. had not posted anything to its website since Friday morning, when a lone gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut and killed 26 people, 20 of them children. Film maker Michael Moore said “The long term

solution to reducing gun deaths is to change our society from one of perpetual war and fear to one of peace and tolerance. The short term solution? A law immediately banning semi-automatic weapons & mega-clips. Must have license to own gun. Must pass mental exam.” Moore sent in an email message to his followers. NRA had posted no tweets. It made no mention of the shooting on its website. None of its leaders hit the media circuit Sunday to promote its support of the Second Amendment as the nation mourns the latest mass shooting victims and opens a brand new debate over gun restrictions. On Monday, the NRA offered no refutation as 300 anti-gun protesters marched to its Capitol Hill office. Facing new restrictions

on gun ownership in the tragedy’s aftermath, theNRA said it would hold “a major news conference” in Washington on Friday. “The National Rifle Association of America is made up of four million moms and dads, sons and daughters— and we were shocked, saddened and heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in Newtown,” the organization said in a statement emailed to news outlets. Twitter users have been steadfast, protesting the organization with hashtags like NoWayNRA. The protestors who gathered outside the NRA’s lobbying headquarters on Capitol Hill Monday chanted, “Shame on the NRA” and waving signs declaring “Kill the 2nd Amendment, Not Children” and “Protect Children, Not Guns.”

Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation Distributes Emergency Cash to Hurricane Sandy Victims Responding immediately to the needs of Northeast communities devastated by Hurricane Sandy, Tzu Chi initiated emergency disaster relief procedures on October 30 and has been distributing warm blankets, emergency cash cards, hygiene kits, and hot food to hurricane survivors ever since. As of December 5, Tzu Chi has distributed 8125 servings of hot food, 2181 emergency backpacks/hygiene kits, 8900 blankets, 6557 scarfs, and nearly $8.6 million in emergency debit cards. In these first six weeks of disaster relief and recovery, Tzu Chi has aided 16,254 families, a total of 40,726 people. Tzu Chi’s aid distributions have been mainly focused on six of the hardest-hit areas in New York and New Jersey: Lindenhurst, Hamilton Beach, Lower Manhattan, Staten Island, South Toms River, and Atlantic City. Many disaster victims have been deeply moved by the care provided by Tzu Chi; several shed tears of relief after receiving the emergency funds, which are being used to fix central heating systems,

phones, and flood-damaged houses, as well as to purchase food and medications. On Staten Island, Marc Alvaroz, whose home was flooded by Hurricane Sandy, told volunteers, “Staten Island is a borough that is often forgotten, we really appreciate the help from Tzu Chi.” Staten Island residents were grateful to learn that emergency funds are an accrual of love from Tzu Chi volunteers nationwide. Many asked for bamboo banks to take with them so that they could save money to help others. Some even immediately donated their loose change, hoping that the pocket change of many will accumulate into a great love to help even more. Tzu Chi will continue to hold community fundraisers, encouraging local communities to come together and aid Hurricane Sandy victims. These will follow the 204 community fundraisers held on November 10-11 by 2809 US Tzu Chi volunteers nationwide. These fundraisers found love in unexpected places, such as a center for the blind in Las Ve-

gas, where many residents deposited all their change into bamboo banks so that they could help bring relief to disaster victims. Tzu Chi’s founder Dharma Master Cheng Yen calls on all people to aid those affected by Hurricane Sandy, and asks that no one stay apathetic toward the suffering of others. The love and contributions of the entire community allow Tzu Chi volunteers to serve the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Tzu Chi accepts checks, credit cards, and online donations. Checks should be made payable to Tzu Chi and mailed to the headquarters address located below. Credit card donations can be made online at us.tzuchi. org or over the phone to 1.888.989.8244 (9am-6pm PST). Donations are tax deductible in the United States.

San Gabriel Rose Float Continued from page 1

$5,000 entry fee to participate in the Tournament of Roses. What’s really inspiring is that the money was fully raised by community sponsors and individual donors - not city funding. He attributes the infusion of generosity to “a dream percolating in a big segment of our community for many years, want(ing) to have another bite of the apple, another chance to participate in that grand floral festival.” Mayor Kevin B. Sawkins, who co-chairs the San Gabriel Centennial Committee along with Mary Cammarano, president of the San Gabriel Historical Association, said the rose float is all part of a larger community program to celebrate the city’s 100th birthday on Apr. 24, 2013. According to Sawkins, the float carries with it into the New Year the regional significance of ‘Celebrating Our Journey’ for the city. “It means a lot to us because it shares with the world San Gabriel’s place in history: a place in Southern California history and how our history is unique,” he said. “We are really the birthplace of the L.A. region; it’s an opportunity for us to have community pride and be proud of our history and heritage, as well as the diversity of our present community.” The mayor, too, is delighted with the generous efforts of many donors and sponsors from the community that have made the float possible. “We were really committed to doing it without city funds. So instead of city tax dollars, we wanted to have it supported entirely by the community - community organizations, residents and businesses,” Sawkins said at a VIP reception held in the

By Tom Gammill

Rose Float Decorating Tent at the Rose Bowl on Thursday evening. The special event was held in appreciation of those sponsors who donated $1,000 or more toward the city’s float. Vice Mayor Mario De La Torre, who chaired the Sponsorship Committee, headed the efforts to raise the necessary funds to hire Paradiso Parade Floats to design and build the city’s float. Athens Services was the top contributor at $25,000, matching dollar for dollar donated from their customers until they ultimately raised $50,000 in total. Other sponsors include Airstream Los Angeles and Hilton Hotel at $20,000 each, while AHMC San Gabriel Medical Center LP, Citizens Business Bank, San Gabriel Community Foundation and Southern California Edison each contributed $5,000. The Centennial Celebration page on the city’s website at www.sangabrielcity.com lists the many other individuals who donated money to the city’s float. According to Preston, the Float Committee, cochaired by Parks and Recreation Director Rebecca Perez and San Gabriel resident Pam Petievich, pulled the whole project together by organizing nearly 100 volunteers working on different tasks. They made the critical decision to go with Paradiso Parade Floats, headed up by Creative Director Charles Meier. “We took ideas from many people’s designs and showed them to Charlie,” said Petievich, explaining how the citywide float design contest was a learning experience for the committee itself. “It really has to have a (distinct) theme, and you’ve got to stick with that theme.” Petievich said they finally decided on a ‘Going to Market’ type of theme

in response to the Rose Parade’s theme, ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go.’ The San Gabriel float features oxen pulling a cart that is overflowing with grapes, Tongva-patterned baskets filled with colorful arrangements of flowers and produce, and a surrounding floral landscape framed by the Spanish-styled architecture of the city’s Grapevine Arbor. Gwen Robertson, who is liaison to both the float’s sponsors as well as its volunteers, said they currently have three shifts of volunteers working on the float - with nearly 45 volunteers per shift. “When you work with communities, you want the community to be part of it, especially when you have a grassroots organization like this,” said Robertson. She said the biggest challenge is yet to come - 15,000 individual roses. “You can’t get them until about December 27th,” Robertson said. “And you can’t prepare them until about the 28th - at the earliest. You have to individually cut them, individually vile them, and then they have to be individually put onto the float. It’s incredibly labor intensive.” The remaining dates to help decorate San Gabriel’s float are from Wednesday, Dec. 26 to Sunday, Dec. 30. There are volunteer opportunities for youth and adults, ages 12 and over. For more information, please email the volunteer coordinator at centennial@ sgch.org or call the Parks and Recreation Department at (626) 308-2875. The float decorating location is at the Rose Bowl, corner of North Arroyo Boulevard and Seco Street, Parking Lot I, in Pasadena.

Warm Winter Fun at Hilton Waikoloa Village By Greg Aragon From pristine beaches lined with volcanic rock and green sand, to lush tropical rainforests teeming with waterfalls and streams, the natural beauty of Hawaii’s Big Island is unsurpassed. But as I found out on my recent trip there, the island also has man-made wonders, such as the Hilton Waikoloa Village resort, where a friend and I spent the last day and night of our visit. To get to the resort, we drove south around the island from Kona, stopping at Volcano National Park, the historic town of Hilo, and then at Akaka Falls State Park, where we encountered a two unforgettable waterfalls. Located in a thick rainforest along the northeastern Hamakua Coast, Akaka Falls are Hawaii’s most famous. To reach them, we descended a staircase into a lost jungle and hiked in pouring rain through thick orchids, bamboo groves

and draping ferns. Following a footpath into the forest, we past the 100-ft Kahuna Falls and then came to the massive and thunderous Akaka Falls, which plummets 442-feet into a stream-eroded gorge. From the falls we finished our southern loop of the island and headed back towards Kona, where we discovered another Hawaiian wonder – the Hilton Waikoloa Village. A destination all its own, this magical 1,240room resort is nestled on 62 oceanfront acres, teeming with breathtaking tropical gardens, stunning artwork, pools and waterfalls, restaurants and shops and everything else to keep an entire family occupied for a week without leaving the property. Our 6th-floor room was located in the Lagoon Tower. To get there we caught a tram near the colorful parrots in the lobby. We would have taken the boat, but it wasn’t running yet. The short ride was beautifully lined with resort shops on one side and a canal with tiny islands and bird-filled trees on the

other. Once in the room, we opened the curtains and were flabbergasted at the beauty before us. A hundred yards out was a volcanic beach, with waves crashing on white and black rocks. The view also included the resort pool and lawn, a salt water lagoon for snorkeling, a rope bridge, and a lagoon full of shiny grey and white dolphins, swimming in an interactive hotel exhibit called Dolphin Encounter. After unpacking, we donned swimming gear and went exploring in the 80-degree weather. We started at the Kohala River Pool – a system of four pools interconnected by waterslides. Here we swam, played beneath a waterfall, soaked in the Jacuzzi and sipped margaritas. For dinner we discovered the Hilton’s romantic Kamuela Provision Company (KPC), winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 2005 and 2006. A sophisticated steak and seafood restaurant, the place looks over the water and offers memorable views of the Hawaiian

San Gabriel Man Fails to Appear State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson for Sentencing; Wanted by FBI Nominates El Monte School

-Courtesy Photo

A San Gabriel man who was scheduled to be sentenced on Monday but failed to appear in court is being sought by the FBI, announced Bill Lewis, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office, and André Birotte Jr., the United States Attorney in Los Angeles. David Kaup, 29, was scheduled to be sentenced Monday, December 17, in United States District Court in Los Angeles. Kaup pled guilty to two counts of wire fraud on April 9, 2012. According to his plea agreement, Kaup carried out three separate fraud schemes, each of which caused millions in losses to victims. Kaup admitted in his plea agreement

that over a period of approximately five years, he defrauded more than 50 families out of more than $11 million. Many of these victims were working class families who sought Kaup’s assistance in refinancing their homes. Kaup admitted in his plea that he had operated several companies, including Lunden Investments, American Loans and Funding (ALF), and First Mortgage West, each of which was based in Los Angeles. Through Lunden Investments, Kaup convinced investors to give him more than $9 million, which he said he was going to use for commercial loans. Kaup admitted in his plea, however, that he instead lost approximately $9 million of the victims’ money trading on the Foreign Currency Exchange Market. After defrauding these victims, Kaup started a separate scheme to deceive homeowners into sending him money. In his plea, Kaup admitted that through his second company, ALF, he told homeowners that he could refinance their homes at below-market rates, so long as they provided certain

funds up front to demonstrate that they financially qualified for the special loan terms. These funds were supposed to be kept safe during the loan process and then returned when the loan was either approved or denied. Kaup admitted that he never tried to refinance the homeowners’ loans and instead used the victims’ money to buy luxury items for himself and to trade on the Foreign Currency Exchange Market. After this scheme collapsed, Kaup admitted in his plea that he ran the same scheme, along with others, through a third company, FMW. In all, through ALF and FMW, Kaup admits that he defrauded more than 50 families out of approximately $2 million. In carrying out these schemes, Kaup used several aliases, including “David Smith” and “David Martinez.” Kaup is described as follows: Date of birth: January 26, 1983, Hair: Black, Eyes: Brown, Height: 5’11” tall, Weight: 190. Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Kaup is urged to call the FBI at 1-888-CANTHIDE (1-888-226-8443).

complete redesign of the website, which now offers analytical tools, map-based searches, trend analyses, chart and graph builders and direct access to the entire payroll database. The update also provides more data than offered in earlier versions. The latest additions include (1) a detailed breakdown of actual wages paid, including regular pay, overtime, lump sum cash outs of vacation and sick leave, bonuses, and other pay subject to Medicare taxes; and (2) the employer’s share of pension costs. The site was originally created by Controller Chiang in late 2010, after he ordered local governments to provide salary and other compensation information for their employees to his office. The Controller’s website includes data from cities, counties, special districts, California State Universities, Community Colleges, and the State itself. For the calendar year 2010, the wages for more than 1.5 million public positions were made available. More than 622,179 positions have been posted for calendar year 2011. For today’s posting, 17 cities and 3 counties did not file in time, or filed in-

complete records. The website covers elected officials as well as public employees. It includes the following information for each position: Minimum and maximum salary ranges; Actual wages paid, which includes not only regular pay, but also overtime, payouts for vacation and sick leave, bonuses, and other pay subject to Medicare taxes; The applicable retirement formula; Both the employer’s share of pension costs, as

well as any contributions by the employer covering the employee’s share of pension costs; Any contributions by the employer to the employee’s deferred compensation plan; and Any employer payments for the employee’s health, vision and dental premium benefits. A list of agencies that failed to file payroll records with the State can also be found on the Controller’s website. Each non-complying agency could face a penalty of up to $5,000.

Controller Finds Payroll Process at Department of Parks and Recreation Violated State Policy Chiang Finds Serious Abuse, Fraud and Overpayments in Parks and Rec

State Controller John Chiang has found numerous errors and potential fraud in the state Parks and Recreation Dept. -Photo by Terry Miller

State Controller John Chiang today said a review of the California Department of Parks and Recreation’s (DPR) payroll process revealed managers and employees violated state policies and keyed in payroll without proper documentation or authority, creating the risk of abuse, fraud and overpayments. “The deliberate disregard for internal controls along with little oversight and poorly-trained staff resulted in improper payouts to Parks’ employees,” said Chiang. “When security protocols and authorization requirements so easily can be overridden, it invites the abuse of public funds.” Much of the DPR’s payroll problems were related to “out-of-class” compensation (OOC), which is a type of pay for employees who perform duties far outside the scope of their position. This type of pay may only be used in limited circumstances, for a specific number of days and with documentation supporting the additional pay. The review, which looked at DPR’s payroll processes for the period of July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2012, found that management circumvented rules and regulations regarding employees who were working out-of-class (OOC) by keying in payments without receiving the proper approval or providing needed documentation. During the period of review, 203 individuals received out-of-class compensation that totaled approximately $520,000.

Without sufficient documentation, the Controller’s auditors were unable to determine how much, if any, of the payments were lawful. However, the auditors did find that employees were paid OOC in excess of the number of days an employee may work out of class under state policies and collective bargaining agreements. Some employees apparently performed back-to-back OOC assignments, and one individual worked on OOC assignment for the 120-day limit, then moved to another OOC assignment for an additional 120 days, and then moved back into the original OOC assignment. Twenty employees who were prohibited from receiving OOC for more than 365 days exceeded that time period, receiving an additional $46,000. The review also found improper access to the payroll system. Last summer, the media reported on a number of unauthorized leave “buybacks,” in which employees were inappropriately paid the cash value of their accrued vacation or other leave time. The Controller’s review found that approximately 90% of those unauthorized leave buy-backs were keyed by two DPR managers who used the payroll system without approved access. In another finding, auditors determined that DPR employees who were out on disability leave were inappropriately given credit for the personal leave program. The program requires employees take a 5% pay cut in exchange for eight hours

of PLP/furlough credits per month. The Controller recommends that DPR personnel remove all PLP credits from employees who received disability pay and were not subject to the 5% pay cut, or the PLP credit. Finally, the review revealed that eight of 19 temporary intermittent employees who are limited to working only 1,500 hours per year exceeded that amount, resulting in $11,272 in extra pay. Two of 16 permanent intermittent employees received approval to extend their work hours beyond the 1,500-hour limit; however, they exceeded the number of hours approved in their extensions at a cost of $548. Eight of 340 retired annuitants working during the review period exceeded the limit of 960 hours per fiscal year at a cost of $5,810. The Controller recommends that DPR set up a system to alert the employee and the employee’s manager when the employee nears exceeding the maximum number of hours per year they work. The Controller calls upon DPR’s new management team to pursue reimbursement from employees who received compensation to which they were not lawfully entitled and plans to revisit DPR’s payroll process at a later date to ensure they are implementing this and the review’s many recommendations to strengthen internal controls over the payroll process.

Handcrafted Toys Made by L.A. County Inmates Brighten Lives of Local Kids In a program that began over 52 years ago, inmates in the Los Angeles County jails have once again worked the entire year to make Christmas day more memorable for needy children. This Holiday Season, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will distribute more than 2,150 handcrafted dolls and wooden toys to children throughout the county. “I am extremely proud of the men and women involved in this ongoing program,” said Sheriff Lee Baca. “Each year, the labors of the instructional staff and jail inmates brighten the lives of children within our communities by providing a gift that may be the only one the child receives at Christmastime.” This year inmates at the Century Regional Detention Facility handcrafted approximately 2,000 cloth dolls and personnel from the Pitchess Detention Center, South Facility will distribute approximately 150 wooden cars, trucks and helicopters.

“The personal satisfaction felt by those involved in the toy giveaway program is outweighed only by the joy they’re able to provide to these deserving children. The program is a blessing to the children and enables the inmates to use their time in a productive manner that benefits the community,” Sheriff Baca said. “To brighten the life of a child during the holidays is certainly one of the most rewarding feelings any of us can experience. After all, it is what the spirit of the holiday season is all about,” the Sheriff added.

Materials used to create these holiday gifts were donated by local merchants and residents. These supplies need to be replaced every year. Please contact the Sheriff’s Department’s Vocational Shops if you are willing to help support this worthwhile program through the donation of wood, wood stain, yarn, cloth material or sewing thread. Doll materials should be directed to Gloria Welsh at (323) 568-4500. Wooden toy materials should be directed to Sergeant Gerri McCorkle at (661) 295-8805.

Remembering What’s Important

When All Is Said And Dunn By Bill Dunn The madness continued in America last week as we, as a nation, shook our heads and shed a collective tear for the victims in Newtown, Connecticut. Despite what the talking heads on the news want to assume, nobody knows what was going through the killer’s head prior to the bullet that ended his life, and we never will. Personally, I don’t care what his motivations and reasons were. Did his mom, who he also killed, spank him too much or deny him additional television time? Again, I don’t care and to spend any additional time discussing it is pointless. What is important is the healing that needs to happen now. Not just with the families in Newtown, but with any family that has young children who have been exposed to the onslaught of the media’s salacious coverage of the tragedy. In their efforts to keep us informed, they always lose

sight of the damage that they are doing to their youngest viewers. They may want to console themselves by thinking that all the young ones out there are being insulated from the tidal wave of descriptions their words paint, but they are not. Those mental pictures are the things that children’s nightmares are made of. As a parent, I cannot begin to imagine the level of grief and pain that the parents of the victims are going through. I can only look at my grown children and be thankful that my wife and I were there for them as much as we could be. As a parent that is all you can do. You know that you can’t be there every second of every day. You can only wish you were. As I listened to the President speak at the memorial service for the victims he echoed that very sentiment. He also said he wants to find a way, as do we all, to make these senseless killings stop. It is a tall order and to be honest, one that I don’t see a solution to. Evil will always be with us, as will good. The only thing that we can hope for is that the scales of humanity stay tilted in the direction of good. The two parts of the equation are guns and mental health, both of which are too prickly of pears for most people to swallow. While stricter gun control might be part of the solution, the second amendment will never

go away and mental illness can only be monitored so far. If there is a cure for what is ailing us as a nation it is going to be a tough one to find. There is one thing that a tragedy like this does make clear and that is how petty some of the things we choose to complain about seem. It puts into perspective what is truly important, especially during this time of year. It is not about who won or lost an election, the person in front of you that cuts you off on the freeway on the way home or the guy ahead of you who grabs the last Xbox off the shelf at Walmart. It’s about the people in your life. The ones you love and who love you. Relish every moment that they are with you because nothing lasts forever. Make sure that they know how happy you are that they are part of your world. Life is hard enough without looking back later and wishing you had. Once that door is closed there is no opening it again. Happy Holidays and may we all have a better New Year. Bill Dunn has been a published opinion columnist for 15 years.

Rosemead City Council Continued from page 1

With Rosemead business owners, bank executives, doctors, and nonprofits in attendance, she announced her campaign priorities to include support for small businesses, public safety, senior and youth programs, as well as emergency preparedness. “As a U.S. Army veteran, having also served in the California Army National Guard, I am confident that I have the knowledge, skills and ability to serve with the uppermost integrity and honesty,” Chin said. According to Chin, she has experience in working with budget constraints. As a small business owner, she has been successful with community outreach efforts and representing the community, she said. “I thank the voters for their confidence and trust in my ability to lead, for

electing me twice to the Garvey School Board,” she said at her event. “Rosemead is the city I grew up in, and where I am raising my three sons now. I feel it is time for me to continue on to serve the city that gave me so much growing up.” Chin was first elected in 2007 and re-elected in 2011 to the Garvey School Board. She has served twice as president of the Board and is the communications director for Senator Dr. Ed Hernandez, O.D. of the 24th Senate District. Chin is currently the subject of a recall effort by the Garvey Education Association, who is accusing her of conflict of interest and voting for a contract extension and pay raise for the district’s superintendent Sandra Johnson. In a recent statement to the media, Chin expressed disappointment in

the association’s decision to target her and assured the community that she stands by her decision to approve the superintendent’s contract extension.

Team 211 Entertainment Announces Return of Oval Track Racing Events to Irwindale Speedway for 2013 We’re very pleased to announce that oval track racing will return to Irwindale for the 2013 season.” With that direct statement, Team 211 Entertainment’s President/CEO Jim Cohan ended a long 11-month period of uncertainty about regular racing competition at the well-known Southern California motorsports and family entertainment facility. “Our master lease with the property owners, Nu-Way Industries, has been broadened and now includes all forms of racing activities on the 6,500-seat twin oval track. We are now working very hard to put all of the pieces together to be able to run a 2013 racing season,” said Cohan. “Our company name has the word ‘TEAM’ in it,” he pointed out. “We need everyone to understand that name is not an affectation. It’s a statement of our commitment to the process of re-build-

ing the legacy of Irwindale Speedway.” “We’ve re-named the entire property ‘Irwindale Event Center’ to better reflect the wide range of public and private events that can be accommodated here and invite everyone to join us in what we feel will be a great new era of operation for this venue. Corporations, businesses small and large, competitors, individual fans, everyone: you are all welcome, if you want to be a part of this facility, we’ll find a place for you.” Cohan concluded. Cohan’s announcement also indicated that long-time employee Bob Klein has been named the event center’s Vice President/Chief Operating Officer, and that veteran publicist Doug Stokes would be re-joining the facility on the first of the year as the Vice President of Communications. Both men will report directly to Jim Cohan.

At the same time, experienced competition manager Mike Atkinson was named the track’s Race Director. Atkinson has been working behind the scenes with representatives of the new Kern County Raceway Park track to put together a common set of technical rules which will allow racers in a number of divisions to compete fairly at both tracks. “We know that we’re starting out a couple of laps behind,” Cohan candidly admitted. “But we also know that we have the support of a great number of former racers, sponsors, and most importantly, our fans who have stood by waiting for this track to come back on line again. We’ll really need everyone’s good will and support, and we’ll be trying very hard to return the favor by running a facility that always puts the customer first.”

El Monte City Council Member Becomes Santa for a Night

Councilman J Gomez as Santa December 20. -Photo by Dena Burroughs

Councilman Juventino Gomez became Santa Claus the evening of December 20 and, traveling on a Christmas float, visited the heavily populated area of the City known as the Bonwoods Apartments, near the intersection of Klingerman and Tyler Avenues. The float, accompanied by the Holiday Trol-

ley and several Citizen Patrol units, traveled from the City’s Public Works facility at Arden Drive to its destination, a slow process that took about 30-minutes during which “Santa” wished a Merry Christmas to everyone who happened to see him on route, many of them residents who came out of their homes and cars

to snap pictures or wave goodbye. “Many children live at the Bonwoods Apartments,” said “Santa” before starting his journey, and he was correct. People seemed to come in every direction once the float arrived, attracted by the holiday music and the insistent “Ho Ho Ho” of Papa Noel-Gomez.

Rep. Judy Chu Denounces GOP Cheap Tricks on Fiscal Showdown Thursday Congressional Republicans pushed their Plan B proposal through the House of Representatives. The legislation, intended as a counter offer to President Obama’s negotiations to end the ongoing fiscal showdown, prompted the following response from Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-32): “In just less than two weeks, we face tax increases and drastic spending cuts from the federal government that will impact every single American. Instead of negotiating in

good faith with President Obama to avoid harm to our economy, Republicans are putting up another show bill – a bill with no chance of passing the Senate; no chance of being signed by the President; no chance of bringing us closer to a deal. The clock is ticking, and it’s time for the GOP to stop these partisan ploys and get back to the negotiating table.” Plan B makes permanent the tax cuts for incomes up to $1 million, increasing taxes on income over $1 million. The plan

also provides for a permanent patch to the alternative minimum tax. It does not, however, extend expanded earned income and child credits while eliminating the American Opportunity Tax Credit. Under this plan, millionaires will still receive a $50,000 tax cut each year while 25 million working families see an average tax increase of $1,000. Instead of addressing our debt, it will add more than $400 billion to our deficit through tax cuts to millionaires alone.

El Monte Appoints New Mayor Pro Tem At the last City Council meeting, Councilwoman Norma Macias was appointed as the new El Monte Mayor Pro Tem, replacing Councilman Juventino Gomez, who had filled the position for the past year. Rather than serving two continuous years as it had been the prior arrangement, the El Monte

City Council decided to rotate the Mayor Pro Tem position annually. Gomez said he considered it “a great idea,” because the yearly appointment allows “everyone to have an opportunity” to serve. Gomez nominated Macias and the motion was agreed upon by every member of the Council. The new Mayor Pro Tem

said that she was honored and that she knew the role is a significant one to fill being that El Monte has such an active Mayor. “Councilman J. Gomez has been a good friend of mine for a very long time, so I’m honored to follow in the footsteps of my big brother,” she added upon accepting the position.

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.
