Dorothy's Place

Sittin’ in gorgeous

By Dorothy Denne You know one great advantage of being 6’6” tall? No one knows you’re going bald unless you sit down. Now that observation has no hidden philosophical meaning. At least if it does, it is so well hidden that I can’t find it. ‘Twas just a thought that walked through my mind this morning as I chatted with a friend who is a crickin-the-neck to talk to. He has gone to his office to meet with important people and speak of important things. I? I’m sipping a cup of coffee, writing and sharing my table with a Railbird, that’s a Starling that sits on the rail to watch the races.

We’re sitting on the patio of Clocker’s Corner at Santa Anita Racetrack. Most of the other humans on the patio are timing the horses in their morning work-outs, studying the racing forms and planning bets for the day. My Railbird and I are not into serious things. Or are we? He is talking to me. He really is saying a lot but I don’t know what it means. I’ve never talked with a Railbird before. They have often come close to me and snatched offered pieces of donut but they’ve never stayed to talk. This little guy is quite prolific. Maybe it is a little gal. How can you tell if a Railbird is male or female? I guess it would help if you were a Railbird yourself. Another thought just walked through my mind. Are there gay Railbirds? I’d ask my friend here but I wouldn’t know what he

answered. It wouldn’t matter anyway. He/she is a gorgeous little creature whatever the gender, or lack of. Gorgeous abounds in this setting. When I arrived, various shades of gray hung over and in the mountains. The air currents have shoved the clouds to the east and the San Gabriels now stand sun drenched and majestic, reaching into an azure blue sky dotted by occasional white fluff. On the track horses run, strut, frisk, prance and amble--gray, black, brown and red---heads held high, nostrils flaring, tails arched in stately style. A big Chestnut, with a mind of his own, just sped by without a rider. The rider is out there somewhere but that Chestnut is heading Hell-bent-for-the-stables on his own terms. Isn’t that great? Guess that shows I’m a horse fan, not a race fan.

El Monte Police Officer’s Association and Auxiliary Finish 2012 in ‘Solidarity with the Community’ The El Monte Police Officer’s Association (EMPOA) started 2012 with the goal of doing a better job at living their motto, “Solidarity with the Community!” Consequently, the EMPOA has done much to live up to their promise. In order to preserve the critical staffing levels and services provided to the community, the EMPOA has taken pay cuts for the past three years and has committed to three more years of pay cuts. Additionally, the EMPOA voluntarily restructured pensions, medical, and fringe benefits to help address short and long-term budget concerns. The EMPOA also agreed to no increases until the City of El Monte is able to restore an appropriate cash reserve. El Monte’s elected officials and executive staff has applauded the unprecedented level of cooperation and commitment shown by the EMPOA towards the residents and businesses in El Monte. The EMPOA considers the formation of the EMPOA Auxiliary as their crowning achievement for 2012. EMPOA President Ben Lowry said: “In order to have true ‘Solidarity with the Community,’ we need the community itself to become a part of our decision making process.” The EMPOA turned to long time El Monte resident and retired EMPD police officer, Richard Thomas, to be their Director of Public Affairs. After discussing the goals of the EMPOA, Thomas suggested

that EMPOA form a group of diverse and civic-minded members of the community to help guide the efforts of the EMPOA. The “EMPOA Auxiliary” was formed and tasked with finding ways to help the EMPOA contribute to the community in ways that are more meaningful. With their help, support, and guidance, the EMPOA Auxiliary has identified dozens of organizations and individuals in El Monte that needed help and support. The EMPOA Auxiliary’s newest member, Josie Zapata, helped the EMPOA & Auxiliary end 2012 strong by throwing the seniors at the El Monte Villa Raintree Apartment a New Year’s Eve Party. Due to the struggling economy, the budget for these seniors was not sufficient to have a Christmas or New Year’s Party. Josie brought this to the attention

February 7 Living Well in a Limited World with Isabelle C. Greene, FASLA A very special presentation! The developed world’s lifestyle engine has been overtaxing our planet so much that most systems are showing signs of collapse. Yet, do we need anything more than shelter, enough to eat, friendship, a stable community and, of course, meaningful things to do? It has been shown that ‘more’ does not result in more happiness. What resources can our gardens teach so that we can fulfill our needs in a lasting way? Isabelle is a Southern California treasure, an internationally renowned landscape architect, and the author of Live Light, Live Small and Have a Big Life, a DVD that shows her passion for sustainable practices.

Tribute to Ray Bradbury now on display at the Duarte Historical Museum He was a man who wore many hats: author, screenwriter, playwright and lecturer. But Ray Bradbury was mostly admired for his generosity and kind heart. A tribute to his life is now on display at the Duarte Historical Museum, collected and organized by Duartean Jack Collins. Playbills, photographs, books, a video and news articles in the exhibit are from Collins’ collection which he has built over the years. “I hold him in high esteem,” says Collins, “and enjoyed organizing the exhibit to honor his many achievements.” Bradbury spoke before a record crowd at Duarte’s PAC Center in 2002, and despite his advanced age, he remained at the Center for two hours after his presentation to sign books and talk to the guests. Monies collected at the lecture and all proceeds from his book sales were donated to our Library. He then returned to

Duarte for another lecture and twice more to participate in the Annual Festival of Authors. Bradbury is commonly known for the books he has authored, many with a science fiction theme. However, his career is diversified, a fact Collins has incorporated into the exhibit. Bradbury died on June 5, 2012 at the age of 91.

The Duarte Historical Museum is located in Encanto Park in Duarte and is open Saturdays 1-4 p.m. and the first and third Wednesday of each month from 1-3 p.m.. Admission is free. The Museum has an all-volunteer staff. For more information or to schedule a group tour call (626) 357-9419. The Bradbury exhibit will remain through February.

Everyone is invited to Pasadena to celebrate the birthplace of America’s favorite food as we honor Lionel Sternberger for the invention of the cheeseburger at Pasadena’s Rite Spot in 1924. This year, for the first time, the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce is providing suggested routes for Cheeseburger Crawls. “Last year, one of the phenomena of Cheeseburger Week was people who organized cheeseburger crawls,” said Chamber CEO Paul Little. “They got three or more of their friends together and went from restaurant to restaurant sampling burgers. People would order a burger and split it four ways, enjoy drinks and then go on to the next place and do it again. That way, in the course of an evening, everyone had a chance to taste the culinary excellence of four or more restaurants.” Suggested Cheeseburger Crawls can be found

at the Cheeseburger Week website at www.pasadenarestaurantweek.com . The Cheeseburger Crawls are suggested routes. Cheeseburger Week celebrants are encouraged to create their own, as well. Some suggested routes include a Traditional Pasadena Cheeseburger Crawl, an Old Pasadena White Table Cloth Cheeseburger Crawl, an East Pasadena Cheeseburger Crawl, an Alternative Cheeseburger Crawl, a South Lake Avenue Cheeseburger Crawl, a Beer and Burgers Cheeseburger Crawl and a Sliders Cheeseburger Crawl. “We don’t want to limit anyone to a particular itinerary, we’re just offering some suggestions,” Mr. Little said. “One of the real challenges of Cheeseburger Week is figuring out how to take advantage of as many of the offerings as possible. The Cheeseburger Crawl is one way to make the most use of a single evening to sample multiple offerings from a variety of Cheeseburger Week participants.”

Cheeseburger Week celebrates the invention of America’s favorite food in its birthplace, Pasadena. From January 13-18, 2013, Pasadena salutes Lionel Sternberger for his mastery, insight, innovation and daring in placing a piece of cheese atop a hamburger for the first time in recorded culinary history at the Rite Spot in Pasadena in 1924. Restaurants, burger stands, bars and lounges will celebrate Cheeseburger Week with special offerings, creative interpretations of the cheeseburger and cheeseburger alternatives. From lunch counters to white table cloth restaurants, the cheeseburger rules in Pasadena from January 13th to 18th. Come to Pasadena for a Cheeseburger Crawl, take the Cheeseburger Challenge and celebrate Pasadena’s culinary legacy in the city where the cheeseburger was invented.

Santa Anita Family YMCA launches annual community support campaign

‘Jane Doe’ child pornography suspect arrested in Los Angeles Public tips lead HSI special agents to her capture

Just hours after federal authorities made a national announcement appealing to the public for leads in a child pornography case with ties to the Los Angeles area, the “Jane Doe” suspect wanted in connection with that investigation was arrested outside an apartment complex in North Hills. “Just after ICE’s nationwide plea for public assistance, five separate community tips led to the arrest of Jane Doe,” said U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton. “This arrest would not have happened without the public’s help, and it demonstrates how much individual citizens can do to help law enforcement attack crime. The best way to protect innocent children from sex offenders is for law enforcement, educators, parents and concerned citizens to join forces and fight back.” Letha Mae Montemayor, 52, was taken into custody without incident at approximately 7:30 p.m. Thursday by special agents with ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and officers from the Los Angeles Police Department. Montemayor was identified by both her facial appearance and the presence of known tattoos. Montemayor’s arrest came less than 10 hours after HSI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California released photographs

of an unidentified man and woman, known only as “Jane Doe” and “John Doe,” sought in connection with a child sexual exploitation case. At approximately 2 p.m. Thursday, HSI special agents received the first tip via a call in to the ICE Tip Line regarding “Jane Doe’s” possible identity. Subsequently, several additional corroborating leads were provided by the community. After cross-checking various databases and determining Montemayor was the likely suspect, investigators placed her under surveillance prior to making the arrest. Montemayor is charged in a federal criminal complaint with one count of production of child pornography. She is expected to make her initial appearance in federal court Friday afternoon. The identity and whereabouts of the male suspect in the case, “John Doe,” remain unknown at this time, as does the identity of the victim. HSI officials underscore that the criminal investigation is ongoing. “This significant development brings us one step closer to vindicating the victim and helping to regain some dignity for all victims of child exploitation crimes,” said U.S. Attorney André Birotte, Central District of California. “With the help of the media and concerned members of the public, we were able to quickly identify the woman allegedly involved

in this child pornography case. We still want the public’s help in identifying John Doe and the victim in the disturbing series of images that continue to be circulated on the Internet.” The criminal complaint alleges that “Jane Doe,” now believed to be Montemayor, was involved in the production of a widely circulated series of child pornography images taken about 11 years ago. Despite extensive investigative efforts, HSI special agents had been unable to determine the identity of the male and female suspects in those photographs. The pictures show an adult man and woman sexually molesting a girl who appears to be about 13. Forensic analysis of the images conducted by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) led investigators to conclude they were produced in the Los Angeles-area, specifically in the San Fernando Valley. The child pornography images in this case were first discovered by HSI special agents in Chicago in 2007. The material was submitted to the Child Victim Identification Program operated by NCMEC, which determined the victim had not yet been identified and was not linked with other known child pornography images. ICE’s search for John Doe and the two additional unknown suspects, wanted for questioning in other unsolved child pornography investigations, continues. Anyone with information or tips that can

assist in these investigations is encouraged to call 1-866-DHS-2-ICE or visit www.ICE.gov/tips. Tips may be reported anonymously. The announcement of the case against John and Jane Doe was made in connection with HSI’s Operation Sunflower, a recently concluded enforcement action aimed at rescuing victims and targeting individuals who own, trade and produce child pornography. Operation Sunflower was conducted as 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-DHS-2-ICE or by completing its online tip form at www.ICE.gov/tips. Both are staffed around the clock by investigators. Suspected child sexual exploitation or missing children may be reported to NCMEC, an Operation Predator partner, via its toll-free 24-hour hotline, 1-800-THE-LOST. HSI is a founding member and chair of the Virtual Global Taskforce, an international alliance of law enforcement agencies and private industry sector partners working together to prevent and deter online child sexual abuse. NCMEC is also a member of the VGT.

Funds will help make Arcadia, Duarte and Monrovia stronger communities for residents Every day, the Santa Anita Family YMCA welcomes hundreds of neighbors and is the gathering place for the community. Kids pour in after school to play and do homework. Teens develop the character traits they will need to be successful adults. Seniors connect with one another through exercise classes and group activities. Families learn how to be healthy and grow together. To ensure that the Y can continue to provide residents of Arcadia, Duarte and Monrovia with life enhancing services, the YMCA is launching its annual community support campaign. As a trusted nonprofit focused on strengthening our community, financial gifts to the Y will help advance programming and services that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. More importantly, gifts to the Santa Anita Family YMCA stay in the community, having a direct impact on residents right here in Arcadia, Duarte and Monrovia. “Through our community support campaign, we want to educate people that we are more than a place to go to exercise or swim, but an organization that does vital work thanks to the support of the community,” said Damon Co-

Everyday is an open house:

laluca, Executive Director, Santa Anita Family YMCA. “The Y contributes to improving the quality of life in our neighborhoods through a variety of ways that benefit all of us who live and work in the San Gabriel Valley.” Last year, financial support made it possible for 1,200 kids to have a safe place to learn and build confidence; for 900 teens to increase their civic engagement and develop life skills; for 1,500 families to reconnect and grow together; and 1,100 neighbors fight obesity and extend their quality of life. This year, the Santa Anita Family YMCA hopes to raise $80,000 in its Community Support Campaign. Funds raised will support efforts to combat obesity and diabetes, improve student success and civic engagement and provide families with support and access to solutions. The Y’s Community Support Campaign kickoff event will take place on Thursday, January 10th at 5:00 and will feature inspiration, fellowship and fun. To volunteer or learn more about how you can support the Y’s cause, please contact Cheryl Reynolds, Development Director at cherylreynolds@ymcala.org, or visit www.ymcala.org/saf for more information.

Holden welcomes 2012-13 class of Assembly Fellowship program Assembly Member Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) is pleased to welcome the new class of the prestigious Jesse M. Unruh Assembly Fellowship Program to the Capitol – a class that includes two members from the 41st Assembly District. The Jesse M. Unruh Assembly Fellowship Program is an 11-month program that provides a meaningful work experience and excellent job opportunities in the state Assembly. “Naima Ford, who has many ties to the 41st Assembly District, will be a great addition to the staff and I am very pleased to have someone from our district working as an Assembly Fellow in the Capitol office,” said Assembly Member Holden. Ford is a graduate of Scripps College, and has lived and worked in many cities throughout Southern California including Pasadena. Before the fellowship she was a reporter and editor at the Inland Empire Community Newspapers where she gained an intimate knowledge of the needs of California cities and residents. “The Assembly Fellowship is a life

changing opportunity and I am so grateful to be a part of this year’s class,” said Ford.

Sierra Madre native, Katie Koerber has also been named an Assembly Fellow.

Koerber will spend the year working as a consultant with the Assembly Republican Caucus Office of Policy. “I am so thrilled to be a Fellow. It is an amazing opportunity that provides real hands-on experience and a firsthand look at the inner workings of California’s legislature,” said Koerber. The Capital Fellows Program has been rated one of the top internships in the country, and includes a very competitive selection process. Ford and Koerber were chosen from over 700 applicants. Many alumni of the program have gone on to prominent positions in courts, state and national government, as well as many elected offices. For those interested in working at the state Capitol, state government or the courts, applications are currently being accepted, and are due February 11.

Irwindale Speedway announces NASCAR sanction agreement for 2013 racing season

“We’re very happy, No...better than that, we’re quite proud to announce our 2013 NASCAR racing schedule for Irwindale Speedway,” said Irwindale Event Center President and CEO Jim Cohan. “We met with Bob Duvall from NASCAR yesterday at our offices in Irwindale,” said Cohan. “He really understands our mission to bring great short track stock car racing back to southern California and he’s very supportive of that goal. Bob made his presentation, answered all of our questions, we signed the sanction agreement, and he got back on a plane and took the papers back to Daytona Beach.” “NASCAR is pleased to bring our Home Tracks program back to Irwindale Speedway,” said Duvall, NASCAR’s Senior Direc-

tor of Business Development. “This facility hasn’t changed physically in any way; it’s the same great race track. What has changed is the management group and spirit of teamwork that Jim Cohan’s people bring to the effort, they’re all top pros, and I’m really looking forward to working with them.” “There were a few doubts out there that this day might not come, not on our part of course. Our team has worked very hard for this day, and to finally be able to tell the world that Saturday night stock car racing is back at Irwindale,” Cohan added. The 2013 racing season will begin on Saturday night, April 6 with a “Grand ReOpening Night” of racing featuring NASCAR Super Late Models, Late Models, Super Stocks, Mini-Stocks

and an evening-ending funfor-all Demolition Derby. Late last year Speedway management announced an alliance with Kern County Raceway Park, the new halfmile oval racetrack that’s just completing construction near Bakersfield. Both tracks are working together to co-ordinate schedules and competition rules to allow teams in a number of divisions to compete at both tracks during the upcoming season. Irwindale Competition Director, Mike Atkinson, will soon be announcing divisional meetings at the track for car owners and drivers. Applications for 2013 NASCAR licenses for drivers and crewpersons are now available at the Speedway office during regular business hours (500 Speedway Drive, Irwindale, California 91706 626-358-1100).

Young ‘rising stars’ to perform at San Gabriel Playhouse - Jan. 13

San Gabriel Mission volunteers distribute love over the holiday

By Erik Derr When he was 4-yearsold, Stanley Leong set his sights on playing the cello. The son of a noted music teacher, Leong had a number of musical experiences in his first few years of life and already knew his way around an orchestra. “The sound of the cello, it just stayed with me. It was warm, intuitive,” Leong said last week during a telephone interview from Toronto, Canada. Musical instruments, he added, are simply tools that give people an added way to express “what they want to say --- the cello fit what I wanted to say.” Since then, Leong, now 18, has perfected his cello playing to become a successful competitive musician, earning worldwide acclaim and entry to some of the top performance venues in the world. His music-making, however, “is not about external successes. It’s all about exploring the human dialogue, this very special art,” said Leong. “Fundamentally, it’s important to always remember what it means to be an artist…the messages your music conveys can be very fluid.” Leong asserts he’s been aware of his relationship with his music --- and has encouraged others to develop that same level of artistry in their own lives --- from his earliest days as a cellist. Leong’s younger brother, Kerson, 15, who began playing violin by the time he was 5, has also ended up a strong advocate for musical education and enrichment. “It’s always our goal to inspire,” Kerson said. “There is an amazing amount of good” and personal growth that “one develops through Classical music or any art…any art that requires dedication.” The process of learning an art form empowers the artists and teaches them to more strongly believe in their own abilities, he said. “It’s necessary for the young generation.” Kerson’s own musical journey took a dramatic turn in 2010 when he claimed first prize in the junior category (under 16) of the international

Violinist Kerson Leong, 15, (left) and Cellist Stanley Leong, 18. -Courtesy Photo

Menuhin Competitionfor young violinists. Kerson gained a flood of notoriety for his win in the contest, founded 30 years ago in Oslo, Norway by Yehudi Menuhin, considered one of the world’s greatest violinists of the 20th Century. Since then, Kerson has traveled the globe, meeting heads of state as well as the top movers and shakers of the music field and performing at the preeminent concert venues of the world --- as a soloist, but often as a duo with Stanley and other times as a trio, alongside his brother and pianist mother. The wild success of the Leongs, who live in Ontario, Canada,is the stuff that artistic inspiration is made of, says music director Fung Ho. That’s why he’s invited the brothers to play Jan. 13 at a free public concert held at the historic San Gabriel Mission Playhouse in San Gabriel. The Leongs will be joined by the California State University, Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra and Arcadia-based Olympia Youth Orchestra, the latter of which draws players from throughout the Greater Los Angeles area. Ho has led the two groups as a combined ensemble since 2010. The Leong brotherswill be featured in the Double Concerto for Violin and Cello by Johannes Brahms, which Stanley notes is one of the few pieces in the Classical repertoire for a violin-cello duo and “represents a very brotherly thing.” Set to start at 3 p.m., the Sunday afternoon

concert will also include Beethoven’s First Symphony in C Major. Hoalso serves on the faculty of the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, which is located on the Cal State L.A. campus, and music director of the Pasadena Young Musicians Orchestra. He hopes that seeing and perhaps even having a chance to meet the Leong brothers will inspire young musical artists here strive for the same level of artistic achievement. Ho laments what he sees as a basic lack of interest in musical education at many of Southern California’s schools where financially-gutted arts enrichment programs have become the norm and whatever funding is left is funneled to the marching bands, which support the schools’ sports teams. That shift away from traditional arts education has left a generation who “don’t value the process of learning,” Ho said. They’ve never been practically trained in how to reach their dreams. “If I can get more people to hear our concerts,” Ho believes, more families will seek to learn music, and “that effort will enrich their lives” in so many other ways, besides artistically. Stanley and KersonLeong, said Ho, “act as a good example of what kids can do.” More information about the Olympia Youth Orchestra and the Jan. 13 concert at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse is available online at olympiaphil.org.

RESERVATIONS: (626) 355-4318 www.sierramadreplayhouse.org “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 comoposites 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.

Oak students give back to kids in need The Associated Student Body officers of Oak Avenue Intermediate School in Temple City hosted a “Winter Wonderland Dance” to raise money for children served by Hollygrove. Over $400 was raised and used to purchase gifts from the Hollygrove holiday wish list. Oak students delivered the gifts and had the opportunity to tour Hollygrove first-hand. “They can’t wait to return and do more,” said Assistant Principal Daryl Topalian, who helped coordinate the project. For 127 years, Hollygrove has been dedicated to helping children and families achieve permanency and well-being. Oak Avenue Inter-

Kenton Nelson Continued from page 1

gallery’s John Strawn and Frank Goss. The authors continue… ”Although Nelson occasionally paints a pure landscape, most of his works include figures within the landscape. None of his figures are old, worn, haggard or undisciplined. They are never out of shape. These quintessentially American characters are beautiful. And yet they inhabit a landscape that, though lovely, leaves the viewer with a sense that the characters are forlorn. Even in a canvas with multiple figures, each figure is a solitary, isolated icon of a perfect world.” Over the past few years, Nelson has been working on this installation that has finally come to pass in Old Pasadena albeit after dealing with some inevitable and rather sticky red tape. The project which consists of 120,000 glass tiles in 84 separate colors make up this mural that will undoubtedly be the talk of the town before too long. The grand mosaic depicts a striking, pensive and perhaps lonely young woman, her hair in a bun , looking to the south as she holds an umbrella. What she’s thinking, what’s next in her life is entirely subjective. Nelson tells Beacon that he entitled the mosaic “Forecasting” Joking that it took him years to convince the building’s owner ( also a friend) to let him install the mosaic, Nelson felt it appropriate that the young woman is holding an um-

brella “ as if the sky was falling…” Nelson quipped. Nelson’s partner in the mosaic project is Niclas Hjelm of Morton Court Mosaic. Hjelm uses stunning, three-eighth inch Vitreous glass tiles which are hand finished in Italy for the mosaics. The tiles are then hand set and stored in sections until the installation is ready. Even the shade and color of the grout is carefully selected. Enter artist Frank Gallagher, long time friend of Nelson and owner of All Industrial Arts in San Marino. Gallagher (who was dubbed the ‘Poet of Pots’ by The Los Angeles Times ) has a inimitable passion for art, in all its complexities. He and his crew helped install these tiny tiles meticulously with Nelson and Hjelm to bring the artist’s visualization to sparkle … into something new and distinct. “I believe than one can take what is known as a ‘traditional, representational image’, re-present it in a different scale or context and arrive at something utterly new, ” Kenton said. Morton Court Mosaic retains the exclusive right to recreate Kenton Nelson’s paintings, which are avidly collected around the world. Owner Niclas Hjelm is energized about this latest Nelson project and ecstatic with the location. “ You wait til the light hits the Vitreous tiles in the afternoon… they’ll sparkle and create stunning colors,” he said. “ Each one-of-a-kind

mural recreates the original work of Nelson. Applying his bold colors and heroic imagery into the limited palette of Vitreous glass, we seek to create a unique pointillist effect,” Morton Court Mosaic’s Niclas Hjelm said. The installation, which should be completed by press time, can be viewed above Intelligentsia Coffee at 55 East Colorado in the alley between Raymond and Fair Oaks. Nelson traces his interest in painting back to his great uncle, Roberto Montenegro, a renowned Mexican muralist and Modernist. The style of Nelson’s paintings have their origins in American Scene painting, Regionalism, and the work of the WPA artists of the 1930’s. Nelson paints figures, landscape, and architecture suffused in subtle light. The intention in his paintings, according to Kenton, is to “idealize the ordinary with the intention of engagement, using the iconic symbols and styles of his lifetime in a theatrical style to make leading suggestions.” Nelson’s compositions of strong horizontal and vertical lines of architecture contrast beautifully with nature’s curves. Kenton Nelson’s ‘Forecasting’ is 14 feet by 11 feet and will permanently grace the west side of the building that houses the coffee shop.

Project Pass gives students every opportunity to succeed Project Pass pairs Advanced Placement Monrovia High School students with struggling 6th and 9th graders. The youngsters being assisted had on or more failing grades in their first quarter of the school year. These grades were selected as the students have all just begun at a new school: the 6th graders at Middle School and the 9th graders at the high school. The volunteer “Big Brothers” and “Big Sisters” work with the students to assist them not only in their studies, but also in adjusting to the new school environment, according to Duke Freyermuth who coordinates the Program. “One of the first things the tutors do is empty out the kids backpacks and help them to organize the backpacks and therefore themselves.” Freyermuth explained that in pairing the older students with the younger ones, it is a sort of peer counseling, but at the same time a mentoring process. He explained that not only are the tutors all volunteers, but so are those they are helping. “No one is forced to participate, but

By Susan Motander everyone with a failing grade is given the opportunity to be tutored,” he said. The parents of students eligible for the program are notified and asked to attend an informational meeting. According to Freyermuth, their acceptance of the program is required. This is the fifth year of operation for Project Pass. In the past the program was limited to the Middle Schools, however, this year, so many students volunteered to be tutors, it was expanded to include 9th graders at Monrovia High. Of the 191 students who volunteered to become tutors, 74 have completed their training and are working with more than 80 younger students. The program will expand in the next semester according to Freyermuth. Some of those who volunteered to tutor had commitments such as Football which prevented them from participating during the first semester. (Yes there are Advanced Placement Students on the Football Team.) Those already tutoring work two afternoons a week at both the Middle Schools:

Clifton and Santa Fe, and at Monrovia High. They are not paid for their time. According to Freyermuth, when asked why they chose to give up their own time, the main reason given was “to help another human being.” Freyermuth did acknowledge that listed the activity on college applications “looks good” and that the activity fulfilled the community service requirement for graduation, but added, “ our tutors do it to help others, as much as for what it gives them.” Project Pass has already won a Golden Bell Award as one of the outstanding academic programs statewide. Monrovia Reads, the local literacy foundation provided the initial funding for the program and continues to support it. In addition, the project has received grant funding through Monrovia Achieves. The Boys and Girls Club of the Foothills is also assisting the program and provides bus transportation for some of the tutors from the high school to the middle schools. The success of Project Pass has become a community project.

Nurses announce NUHW affiliation in stepped-up campaign to uphold standards With escalating healthcare industry attacks on patient care protections and living standards for registered nurses and other hospital employees, often aided by a surrogate wearing a union label who cosponsored an effort to suspend California’s nurse-to-patient ratio law, the California Nurses Association/National Nurses United today announced the affiliation of the National Union of Healthcare Workers. “Today we intend to send an unmistakable message to a callous hospital industry that nurses will not stand silent in the face of a ruthless drive by hospital employers or their collaborators to uproot decades of progress made by RNs and other healthcare workers,” said CNA Co-President Deborah Burger, RN. The sharp uptick in concession demands by large hospital chains, such as Kaiser Permanente and Sutter Health, for sweeping reductions in health coverage, pensions, and workplace and economic standards, while California hospitals made $4.4 billion in profits in 2010 alone, coincides with broader attacks on unions and workers, as symbolized by the recent enactment of so-called right-to-work legislation in Michigan. But, noted CNA, the assault has a unique character in California where United Healthcare West/SEIU President Dave Regan and his top managers have acted on behalf of big employers like Kaiser and Sutter, and the hospital industry lobby arm, the California Hospital Association. Regan and his manage-

ment circle have targeted safe care standards while acceding to unprecedented cuts in contract standards that have severely undermined the ability of nurses to defend patient safety and their own contract protections. “For 25 years we have worked to strengthen the ability of RNs to deliver safe care, to enhance the professional practice of RNs, and to improve the ability of nurses to have safe working conditions, economic security, and the ability to retire in dignity. We will never accept reductions in quality of care and patient services for our communities, or cuts that reverse living standards for nurses, other workers, and our families,” said Burger. “Nurses across California know our unparalleled record of fighting to protect their patient advocacy rights and professional practice, whether in standing up to aggressive employers, or winning improvements in legislation or regulation,” said Burger. “With this affiliation, we are also sending a message to other hospital workers that our unity can advance the interests of all healthcare workers who face employer demands for cuts, or a union like UHW/SEIU that has failed them. Many UHW/SEIU members have already contacted CNA, as well as NUHW, seeking real representation,” said Zenei Cortez, RN, who chairs CNA’s Kaiser bargaining team and is also a CNA copresident. “Uniting together, CNA and NUHW are taking a huge step forward in achieving our joint goal of

upholding standards for workers and patients.” Moves by Kaiser, California’s largest hospital system, illustrate the stakes. Despite generating $8.2 billion in profits the past three years, Kaiser has understaffed hospital units, delayed admissions, pushed early discharge of patients, and subjected patients for long waits for mental healthcare appointments. Concurrently, in Kaiser, Regan and UHW managers have: accepted significant cuts in retiree healthcare coverage and healthcare privacy rights, agreed to subcontracting of jobs, failed to protect members from elimination of more than 1,000 positions in hospitals and clinics, agreed to impose a 9 cent per hour labor-management “Partnership Tax” on members, and demonstrated an enthusiastic willingness to market Kaiser’s business model. CNA and NUHW have opposed such unjustified cuts. CNA and NUHW members have walked off the job and onto the picket line together. This year, the National Labor Relations Board will schedule an election for 43,000 Kaiser workers who will decide whether to remain in UHW/SEIU or to join NUHW. At the same time, in addition to his attack on California’s landmark ratio law on behalf of CHA and the hospital industry in general, Regan also co-authored a CHA plan to tie health benefits to arbitrary lifestyle goals and penalize workers who don’t meet those goals with higher costs, regardless of chronic conditions or other health history.

Breakfast at Sena on Myrtle, Shevlin-style How does a popular restaurant-bar expand its business beyond the lunch and dinner crowd? Though adding a breakfast menu might sound logical, how do you get the word out – and, how do you convince your customers to start their day with you -- as well as end it? Looks like Damon Thompson, manager of Sena on Myrtle, has found a unique answer: convince a local dignitary to not only share a special recipe with you, but to spend a morning in your kitchen cooking it as well! Last Saturday morning Monrovia Council Member Becky Shevlin worked the grill in Sena’s kitchen alongside Chef Antonio, and prepared her famous blueberry buttermilk pancakes which those lucky enough to have tasted them know, are not like any pancakes you have ever eaten. Somewhere between a crepe and a pancake, loaded with blueberries and topped with a twist of Meyer lemon and a sprinkling of powdered sugar, Becky’s Pancakes

(as they will now appear on Sena’s new breakfast menu) are surprisingly delicious. “As for me, I had a blast”, said Shevlin. “I showed up at 7:30 a.m. and left at l: 30 p.m. I experienced the full kitchen routine, including prep, cooking and clean-up. The kitchen crew, especially Chef Antonio, were great supporters. Everyone treated me like one of the crew, including the servers. I have a new found appreciation for anyone working

in a busy restaurant. This was a definite Bucket List accomplishment!” An interesting side note: the City of Monrovia has been spending a lot of time visiting individual Old Town businesses – getting to know them, asking for their input, and letting them know how they can stay connected. Although Council Member Shevlin’s morning at Sena was not a city-sponsored event, it certainly reflects the council’s dedication to local business.

After WW11 ended, at Walt Disney Studios, a group of animators, writers and technicians (who loved jazz) would gather into Ward Kimball’s office at lunch time and play along with the phonograph. One day it broke down and they played without it. So, they started playing at weekly get togethers in living rooms. Word got out about them and they began playing for friends’ parties and public dances. At about that time the band consisted of animator and producer Ward Kimball (trombone), animation director Frank Thomas (piano), animator Clarke Mallory (clarinet), sound effects and voice of Mickey Mouse Jim MacDonald (drums) and screenwriter Ed Penner (bass sax, and later, the tuba). The next two to join were writer John Lucas (trumpet) and animator and art director Harper Goff (banjo). First the band was called “The Hugageedy 8” and then “The San Gabriel Valley Blue Blowers”. The Kimballs belonged to the

So. Ca. Horseless Carriage Club and decided to bring the band to one of their next events but what would the band ride in? Ward purchased a 1914 American La France fire truck from the city of Venice for $225. and spent six months having it fully restored. Red fire shirts, white suspenders and fire helmets were purchased. They rode in the fire truck for the clubs parade and they became the Firehouse Five. At one of there events Ward introduced the band as the Firehouse Five and John Lucas yelled out, “plus two.” Ward said that he liked it... and kept it. They were a big hit and began recording for the new “Good Time Lazz” label. John is on the first few tracks and for various reasons assistant director Danny Alguire (cornet) replaced John and the head of the sound effects department Monty Mountjoy (drums) took over for Jim MacDonald. They became famous, playing at the Beverly Cavern,the Macambo in Hollywood where

movie stars such as Ginger Rogers, Lucille Ball and Judy Garland came for the Charleston dance contest, for Hollywood and high society parties, Bing Crosby’s Golf Tournament, the Kraft T.V. Show and CBS Chesterfield radio program, T.V. shows and two movies: Republic’s 1951 “Hit Parade” and MGM’s “Grounds For Marraige”. They decided to take a hiatus for a while. Dick Roberts (banjo), star of Good Time Jazz’s Banjo Kings and Disney musician replaced Harper Goff because he wanted more time for illustration work. Tom Sharpsteen (clarinet), whos father was a Disney executive, briefly replaced Clarke before the FH5+2 hiatus. In 1954 music editor George Probert (soprano sax) began playing with the FH5+2. Jerry Hamm and Monte went back and forth on drums and Jim returned later, However,it was sound effects artist Eddie Forrest who took over on the drums and remained until the end. The FH5+2’s success soared playing several times for the Mickey Mouse T.V. Show, for the grand opening of Disneyland, the New Orleans stage, the Golden Horseshoe Theater and throughout Disneyland, dixieland jazz jubilees, fireman’s balls, charities, benefits, T.V. shows: Lawrence Welk, Milton Berle, Ed Wynn and ABC’s “Stars of Jazz” ...they were everywhere! By 1957 they had turned down an estimated one million dollars dollars worth of bookings and they had a standing offer to play Las Vegas for $12,000. a week. Well, that’s what the liner notes said but Probert says it was $15,000. Their success continued, converting the general public (in the U.S. and overseas) into new dixieland jazz fans, collectors and musicians, young and old.

Life Remembered Arlie Elizabeth Patterson Hehn Arlie Elizabeth Patterson Hahn died Thursday December 20, 2012, one day shy of her ninetyeighth birthday. Arlie lived a full and wonderful life, much loved by her family and friends. Arlie was born December 21, 1914 in Washington State, where her family homesteaded. The family moved to Los Angeles in 1922. Arlie graduated from Manual Arts High School, Los Angeles, in 1933. She married John Dee Hahn on May 25, 1934. Arlie and John moved to Sierra Madre in 1960. Arlie was preceded in death by her husband

John, her son Robert and granddaughter Alison Selleck. She is survived by her children Winifred (Carl) Westberg, Arlabeth Hahn, Margaret (Craig) Switzer, and Charles Hahn, her daughter-in law Jo Hahn, nine of her ten grandchildren and fifteen greatgrandchildren. Arlie was always very committed to her community, and volunteered with many groups including Knox Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles, Bethany Church in Sierra Madre, the PTA, Republican Women’s Club, Sierra Madre Garden Club, Sierra Madre Women’s Club,

Sierra Madre Civic Club and the American Red Cross. She felt that “People who don’t get involved lead a sad life.” Arlie was named Sierra Madre Senior Citizen of the Year in 1984.

spend over $40,000 more per year to keep her as Superintendent despite a “$2,000,000 budget shortfall, parents speaking at Board Meetings against her contract renewal and salary increase, no raise for any other employee for 5 years, [and] two overwhelming ‘No Confidence’ votes by teachers and classified employees.” Chin responded with an open letter to the community on Jan. 7, defending the accusations made against her by the association, specifically those related to her support for the superintendent. “Superintendent Dr. Johnson is a highly qualified leader who was unanimously hired by all five board members to lead the district,” Chin said in her statement. “We saved money by hiring her as a ‘retired’ superintendent, like many school districts do.” At a Sep. 28 press conference held by Garvey School District officials, Drange told this reporter that the board gave the superintendent an annuity equivalent to the money they would have paid into her retirement and a tax shelter to do it. “And they don't want us to call it salary, they want STRS (State Teachers' Retirement System) to call it salary,” he said. “Call it what you want, but that’s spiking your pension.” In an email following the Sep. 28 press conference, Chin explained how the dis-

trict saved money by keeping Johnson as the superintendent. “By not using an executive search firm, we already saved $30,000, plus we saved the district time since we wouldn't have to undergo a six-month executive search process, saved money on the acclimation period, and the $40,000 is not money going into her monthly paycheck it goes into an annuity,” she said. Chin is also accused in the notice of recall petition of being “engaged in a conflict of interest when she voted on fees for after school programs including her Foundation.” But Chin said she has abstained from voting on anything that may be perceived as a conflict of interest. “I do not receive any financial benefit from being a founder of a non-profit charity who donates money to help fund things like the teachers’ annual mini-grants, special programs, school musical equipment, and sports equipment,” she said in her statement. “This non-profit charity raises money through yard sales, fundraisers, and corporate donations to give away to the district’s students and schools, NOT take things away!” Although the association claims, in its harshest rhetoric, that she has “betrayed the public trust [by] failing to listen to district stakeholders while abusing her power as a Garvey School Board Member,” Chin said that such a re-

call effort at this time would ultimately hurt the district financially. “The Los Angeles Registrar Recorder estimates that this special election recall will cost the Garvey School District $210,000 to conduct,” Chin said in her statement. “I find it a waste of precious time, energy and resources and ask Mr. Drange, to instead, join in my efforts of fundraising for the students’ needs. This recall petition is just harming the students and the community.” 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. On Dec. 12, Chin announced her candidacy for Rosemead City Council for the Mar. 5, 2013, municipal election. Outlining her vision to “Build a Better Rosemead,” she said her campaign priorities are to include support for small businesses, public safety, senior and youth programs, as well as emergency preparedness.

KALM talent group signs rising SoCalGas conservation tips help star singer/songwriter Katie Ekin customers put a blanket on winter KALM Talent Group natural gas bills, focus on savings continues to build its impressive client roster with some of today’s most talented up and coming singer/songwriters that are ready to take their careers to the next level. Enter pop-folk-indie singer/songwriter Katie Ekin, who recently signed with KALM Talent Group, and has released the first single and title track of her new EP, “Caught Up In You.” The highly-anticipated song from the award-winning singer/songwriter, now live on kalmtalentagency.com, is also available for download on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. “Caught Up In You” is the latest in more than 200 original songs written by Katie. The prestigious West Coast Songwriters competitions have led to eight of Katie’s ten awards thus far which include three for Best Performance, four for Best Song and one for the coveted Hollywood Chapter’s Song of the Year. “Katie Ekin has a mature songwriting style that is complimented by a unique ability to transform personal life experiences into award-winning songs,” said KALM Talent Group Founder Kerry Kessel. “Katie has a special gift that always leaves you wanting more.” And more there will be as Katie and the KALM Talent Group team plan for the next exciting steps in her burgeoning music career. Plans for a debut album of original professionally produced songs will be announced in the near future. “Katie Ekin is a naturally gifted singer/songwriter who will undoubtedly leave a significant mark on the music industry,” continued Kessel. “Katie’s singular style, quality composing and raw organic, no-nonsense music is a perfect fit with our agency and I am both honored and excited to welcome her into the

KALM Talent Group family.” Unique, multi-talented and committed to her craft, this popular young artist with a beautiful voice likened to “butter,” calls songwriting, not just her passion, but her lifestyle. “Katie is the proverbial “full package” and then some,” added Kessel. “She has so much to share not only with a worldwide audience but with the industry as a whole. KALM Talent Group is so ready to move full speed ahead with this remarkable and accomplished young artist.” So does Katie, who aspires to enjoy an accomplished career a la one of her favorite current artists Taylor Swift, prefer to write or perform? “It’s equal,” said Katie with an innate artistic reasoning that is as poetic as her songs. “I love writing because I never really know how I feel until I write the song. It is very personal, revealing and exciting. Then, when I perform the song, it’s even more emotional when I am able to connect with audiences and share the experience with them.” Katie, who spends most of her days writing, composing and playing her guitar, counts the Beach Boys, the Beatles, Leslie

Gore, Ricky Nelson and most importantly, her father Gary among her many musical influences. In a world where fresh talent is being discovered and fostered in progressive new ways including on television, reality shows and the internet, the time – and need -- for an innovative up-to-date talent agency has arrived...and its name is KALM Talent Group. Formed by accomplished entrepreneur and philanthropist Kerry Kessel with a “times have changed and so must the way we do business” mindset, forwardthinking Kessel created KALM to complement the evolving music industry. Inspired by the quality and range of untapped talent and the success of such young powerhouses as Justin Bieber whose rise to fame began on You Tube, Kessel built KALM Talent Group upon a model of “extreme interactivity.” In addition to traditional methods of discovering new talent, KALM heavily utilizes the power of the internet for everything from discovering and auditioning perspective clients to presenting the gifts of its signed hot young artists to major record labels via www.kalmtalentagency. com.

As winter chills continue to hit the southland, Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) is offering energy and money-saving tips and encouraging customers to take simple steps to help them stay warm while keeping a blanket on natural gas bills. Home heating is the number one natural gas use for residential customers, accounting for up to 65 percent of a home’s total winter gas use. “We know that a typical home’s natural gas use for heating increases during colder months, sometimes up to three times more than in warmer seasons. A good way to help lower winter gas bills is to conserve in two key areas that can account for most of our gas use: home and water heating,” said Hal Snyder, vice president of customer solutions for SoCalGas. SoCalGas offers these tips for a warm and energy-efficient winter: Save up to 30 percent on heating costs by lowering your furnace thermostat by three to five degrees (health permitting). Install a programmable thermostat to help automatically regulate your home’s temperature for comfort control and energy savings. Keep your heating system tuned up to operate at maximum efficiency. Clean or replace furnace filters according to manufacturer recommendations and keep all heating vents

and furnace registers free of dirt, lint and obstructions. Caulk and weatherstrip drafty windows and doors. Open your drapes and shades during the day, allowing the sun to warm your house. Close them at night to limit the amount of heat that escapes. Water heating is the second largest energy expense in the average home and there are four key ways to cut water heating costs: use less hot water, turn down the thermostat on your water heater, insulate your water heater, or buy a new, more efficient model. Setting your water heater’s thermostat at or slightly below the manufacturer’s recommendation may prevent scalding and help lower energy costs. While some manufacturers set water heater thermostats at 140ºF, most households usually only require them set at 120ºF. If you have a gas water heater, turn it to the “Pilot” setting when you go on vacation. Insulate exterior, uncovered hot water pipes. Take shorter, cooler showers rather than baths and install low-flow, water-saving showerheads. Showers can account for over 50 percent of your hot water usage. Save up to 10 percent of hot water costs by washing full laundry loads in cold water and wash full loads in the dishwasher. Fix leaky faucets. One

drop of hot water per second can waste 500 gallons a year. “SoCalGas is committed to helping customers manage their energy costs and has programs that can help. We encourage customers to visit our website for energy-saving tips, rebates and bill-assistance programs,” said Robert Visconti, regional public affairs manager for SoCalGas. Through December 31, 2013, SoCalGas is offering the following rebates: a $200 rebate on central furnaces, a $50 rebate on qualifying gravity wall furnaces and rebates of up to $75 on qualifying storage water heaters and up to $200 on qualifying tankless water heaters. In addition, SoCalGas offers assistance programs such as a 20 percent rate discount for income-qualified customers, no-cost home energy upgrades for qualifying customers and more. If customers are having trouble paying their bill, SoCalGas may even be able to offer payment arrangements. For more information on rebates, conservation and simple home improvement tips, or to learn about customer assistance programs, customers should visit SoCalGas’ website at www. socalgas.com or call (800) 427-2200. Customers are asked to have their account number handy for faster service.

With the Rosemead Boulevard Enhancement Project set to break ground on Jan. 24, the City of Temple City is hosting a community meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 16, 7 p.m., at the Temple City Historical Society Hall (5954 Kauffman Ave.) to announce details on upcoming construction. The City will introduce the project’s phasing schedule for the next 16 months, with the project management team available for questions. Other items for discussion include project-related traffic impacts, including detour routes; as well as communications resources, such as an AM radio station, designated project website and Nixle notification system. “In a way, the Rosemead Boulevard improve-

ment effort is indicative of the emphasis on innovation, vision and high performance at City Hall,” said Mayor Vincent Yu. “It’s the first major infrastructure project we’ve seen in recent history, and some project elements like the protected bike lanes and outdoor dining are really forward thinking, addressing issues that will improve local quality of life for the next 50 years and beyond.” In addition to new bicycle facilities, the $20 million project includes new sidewalks of rubberized asphalt concrete, a sustainable material made from recycled tires; pedestrian amenities such as added pedestrian lighting, seating nodes and ADA accessibility running the corridor’s two-mile length; new trees

and landscaping; outdoor dining opportunities; as well as public art, including a creative “Art Walk” concept. Together, these and other project features will transform Rosemead Boulevard from a pass-through thoroughfare into an exciting community destination. To learn more, the public is strongly encouraged to attend the upcoming meeting. Chinese translation and childcare services will be available.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. 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.

The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.

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.
