Glendale Fire responds to La Crescenta structure fire with live power lines



Planned Parenthood commemorates 40th anniversary Roe V. Wade Planned Parenthood Pasadena Celebrates 80 years


On Friday, January 18, 2013, three Glendale Engine Companies, two Glendale Truck Companies, one Glendale Basic Life Support ambulance, and one Los Angeles County Engine Company under the direction of Battalion Chief Thomas Marchant responded to a reported structure fire at 4822 Dunsmore Avenue, La Crescenta, California, 91214. E28 arrived on scene to discover an unoccupied moving truck had traveled down Dunsmore Avenue, struck a telephone pole knocking it down with active power lines attached to it. The live power lines sparked a small exterior fire on a residential property. Glendale Fire Department quickly extinguished the fire using a dry chemical extinguisher due to active power lines within the vicinity of the fire. 3,000 resi-

The Rev. Ed Bacon and Rev. Tom Davis were two of the guest speakers at a special luncheon Tuesday at Altadena Country Club to help Pasadena’s Planned Parenthood celebrate the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. The well-known local and national scholars of theology and current events brought forth some meticulous insight into a woman’s right to choose and the ongoing debate on behalf of the conservative right in the United States which Reverend Tom Davis said is “absolutely about controlling women’s’ lives.” Ed Bacon, who is rector at All Saints is not one known for his silence on social issues. Bacon’s 4000 member congregation is arguably the most progressive in the Los Angeles area when fighting social injustice and peace issues. Bacon said Tuesday that the attempts by those opposed to a woman’s right to choose are “ Racist and sexist…” and he continued that those attempts to quash a woman’s right to choose

Letter to the Editor Send your letters to Dear Editor: A very scary thing has just happened to one of my clients. She and her husband obtained a living trust from a “Trust Mill”. The husband has now died and the wife consulted the Mill. They charged her $4,000.00 to divide the assets of the trust and required a $2,000.00 deposit (a gross overcharge). The

trust which the Mill prepared was fatally defective, but the Mill will not refund the widow her money and refuses to return her files until she pays the full $4,000 00. This cannot happen if you consult an attorney. The State Bar of California has always policed matters such as this with a very firm hand. The Trust Mill,

however, is not a lawyer and is not subject to the sanctions of the State Bar. It is the old story, of Buyer Beware. The public should understand that their estate plan is an extremely important matter and should only be entrusted to attorneys trained as specialists in that field. James R. Helms, Jr. Attorney at Law Arcadia

Holden authors bill to fight human trafficking AB 156 expands wiretapping law to include human trafficking Human trafficking is a $32 billion dollar a year enterprise and California is one of its top destinations. A growing number of these victims are girls and boys – sometimes as young as 12 or 13 who are brought into California and forced into prostitution. It is a crime both nationally and internationally. But, like drug and arms trafficking, it is one of the most difficult to pursue. That’s why Assemblymember Chris Holden (DPasadena) has introduced legislation designed to give law enforcement a new tool to crack down on the bad guys. Under AB 156, law enforcement officers will be able to get a court order for a wiretap when they suspect human trafficking of minors. “You would think in this day and age when traffick-

ers have become more sophisticated, law enforcement would have all the tools it needs to stop these criminals. But you would be wrong,” said Assemblymember Holden. “This bill will change that and help stop this modernday slavery that threatens our children, our families and our neighborhoods.” Law enforcement is currently authorized to obtain a court order to wiretap for investigation of drug trafficking or criminal gang activity, but not human trafficking. Under this bill, law enforcement officers can ask a judge for wiretap permit to investigate sex trafficking of a minor. Estimates are that 100,000 children nationwide are exploited each year. “The California Police Chiefs Association takes human trafficking very, very

seriously”, stated John Lovell, Legislative Advocate for the Association. “California’s wiretap laws have been crucial in going after complex, multi-level criminal activities. The reality is that human trafficking is an organized criminal enterprise, and the full range of enforcement tools are needed to combat this particular crime.” “It is heartbreaking to hear the stories of these youngsters who are pimped and branded and badly mistreated. I think of my daughter and her friends and I want to do everything possible to stop these horrible crimes. It’s the least we can do to protect our children,” concluded Holden. Similar laws are already on the books in several other states including Texas, Illinois and Maryland.

Andy Warhol: Polaroids on view only at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex Portraits of Bette Davis, Carolina Herrera, Chris Evert and more on view for the very first time to the public In the 1970s and 80s, iconic pop artist Andy Warhol made thousands of pictures with his Polaroid camera. The subjects range from celebrities to unknown individuals to objects that fascinated him, and many of these photos served as inspiration for his later paintings and silkscreens. This exhibition, made possible by a donation to the Luckman Fine Arts Complex Permanent Collection from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, presents a selection of these Polaroids to the public

for the first time. Admission to Andy Warhol: Polaroids is completely free and open to the public. Parking will be available directly across from the Luckman Complex at a rate of one dollar per hour.

bank. Lenahan has been serving as the City’s interim fire chief since the departure of Chief Ray Krakowski who retired December 24, 2012. Chief Lenahan began his career in public safety as a deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in 1982. Five years later, he joined the Burbank Fire Department as a firefighter.

Natural History Museum celebrates 100 years in Los Angeles By Greg Aragon This year marks the 100th anniversary of in Natural History Museum (NHM) in Los Angeles. Since first opening its doors in 1913 in Exposition Park, just west of Downtown Los Angeles, the facility has given millions of visitors a fascinating look into the world of science, history and art, while highlighting the ancient lives of dinosaurs and other living creatures. To celebrate its centennial, the museum is throwing a big birthday bash this summer, with new exhibits, displays and the culmination of a seven-year, $173 million renovation to the property that created a 3.5-acre urban wilderness destination known as the North Campus. “North Campus is a major part of the historic metamorphosis taking place at NHM,” says Dr. Jane Pisano, president and director of the Museum. “We are entering a new dimension of programming, extending the visitor experience from an incredible collection of natural

specimens inside to an outdoor space where plants and animals can be interpreted in a living context.” This area, which will serve as a new “front yard” for the museum and a new outdoor destination in the heart of Los Angeles, will feature habitats of butterflies, birds, bugs and plants, and will be a place where visitors can “partner with museum scientists on citizen science projects while discovering and enjoying the rich diversity of life that flourishes all around.” The project increases the programming area of the Museum by 50 % and gives visitors the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the natural world before walking through the Museum’s doors. Highlights of the 108,000-sq-ft transformation include renovated and reinstalled indoor space, a parking structure, café, and pedestrian bridge, and a stunning glass structure known as the Otis Booth Pavilion, or the “Whale Pavilion.” The project began in 2006 with the renovation and seismic retrofitting of the museum’s iconic 1913 Beaux Arts-styled main building.

This was a meticulous process because the museum didn’t want to change the appearance of the building with all of its classic columns, cornices, arches, domes and brilliant rotunda, which measures 58 ft-high by 75 ft across, and is topped with a spectacular stained glass skylight 20 ft in diameter. Another highlight of the renovation is the new Otis Booth Pavilion, a 62-ft-tall by 64-ft-wide, glass box structure, which will house a giant hanging whale skeleton. The pavilion, named after a $13 million gift from the Otis Booth Foundation, will act as the main entrance to the museum, anchoring the North Campus. It will prominently exhibit one of the museum’s signature holdings, a 63-ft-long fin whale skeleton. The huge mammal will be a dramatic experience for visitors as they progress over the new whale-inspired pedestrian bridge, through the all-glass entrance into the museum. As for exhibits, The NHM’s new Dinosaur Hall is one of the most extraordinary dinosaur exhibits in the world, and the premier dinosaur experience in the

western United States. Inside are more than 300 real fossils, and 20 complete dinosaurs and ancient sea creatures. A centerpiece of the exhibit is the T-Rex growth series — the only trio of different aged T-Rex specimens in the world. This exciting exhibit lets visitors see eye-to-eye with a Triceratops and walk under the neck of a 68-foot Mamenchisaurus. It also showcased 20 complete dinosaur and sea creature mounts that have either never been on

display before, or have been re-posed according to the latest research. Many were discovered in the last several years by the Museum’s inhouse Dinosaur Institute. The Natural History Museum was the first dedicated museum building in Los Angeles, opening its in 1913. It has amassed one of the world’s most extensive and valuable collections of natural and cultural history— with more than 35 million objects, some as old as 4.5 billion years. The Natural

History Family of Museums includes the NHM, the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits (Hancock Park/MidWilshire), and the William S. Hart Park and Museum (Newhall, California). The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles is located at 900 Exposition Blvd. It is open daily 9:30 am to 5 pm. It is conveniently located next to two MetroLink Expo Line stops.

State schools chief Tom Torlakson urges public to observe Fred Korematsu Day State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today encouraged all Californians to take a moment during the last week of January to observe the third annual “Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution,” as well as participate in the Korematsu Day events throughout California. “History offers us many lessons, among them the cost of war and racism, and the strength it takes to achieve justice,” said Torlakson. “Korematsu Day gives us an opportunity to reflect on all this and more.” Korematsu Day is Wednesday, January 30, 2013. Fred T. Korematsu was born in Oakland, California, on that same day in 1919. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, he defied President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066. The order authorized the U.S. military to forcibly remove more than 120,000 people of Japanese descent from their homes and incarcerate them in camps throughout the country. Two thirds of the people were American

citizens. Korematsu was arrested and convicted of violating the federal order. He lost appeals all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court. Four decades later, Korematsu’s conviction was overturned in federal court after a legal historian discovered evidence proving U.S. intelligence agencies knew that Japanese Americans posed no military threat to the country during World War II. “After my father’s conviction was overturned in 1983, his mission was education,” said Karen Korematsu, his daughter and co-founder of the Fred T. Korematsu Institute for Civil Rights and Education in San Francisco. “At the Korematsu Institute, we’ve worked hard to provide teachers with free teaching materials so they can teach about my father and the overall Japanese American internment.” Fred Korematsu went on to champion the cause of civil liberties, not only seeking redress for Japanese Americans who were wrongfully incarcerated, but also travel-

ing the country to advocate for the civil rights of other victims, especially after 9/11. He received the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, from President Bill Clinton. Korematsu passed away in 2005 at the age of 86. Legislation co-sponsored in 2010 by then Assembly Members Warren Furutani (D-South Los Angeles County) and Marty Block (D-San Diego) officially designated January 30 “Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution,” the first day in U.S. history named after an Asian American. California Education Code Section 37222.15 encourages schools and local educational agencies to “conduct exercises remembering the life of Fred Korematsu and recognizing the importance of preserving civil liberties, even in times of real or perceived crisis.” This is advisory only and does not constitute a mandate. The Korematsu Institute is also working with communities across the country to

was a “sin.” Attended by over 100 people, this thoughtful dialogue about a complex topic focused on shared values, not divisions. Speakers Reverend Ed Bacon, Rector of All Saints Church in Pasadena, and Reverend Tom Davis, chair of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America Clergy Advisory Board, highlighted the history of faith-based communities’ involvement and influence in expanding women’s access to comprehensive reproductive health care, and their commitment to protecting the Roe decision. “As a leading women’s health care provider and advocate in California, we know that abortion is a deeply personal and difficult decision for a woman to make, if and when she needs it,” said Sheri Bonner, President and CEO of the local Planned Parenthood. “Today we were honored to be joined by two remarkable faith leaders to help us reframe the conversation and promote a nonjudgmental approach to trusting and supporting women and families.” A majority of Americans respect the privacy of every woman to make her own decisions when faced with a pregnancy, and oppose efforts to overturn Roe v. Wade. According to a 2012 Gallup poll, 77 percent of Americans think abortion should be legal in some or all circumstances. Roe v. Wade, (1973), was a ground-breaking pronouncement by the United States Supreme Court on the issue of abortion. Decided simultaneously with a companion case, Doe v. Bolton, the Court ruled 7–2 that a right to privacy under the due process clause of

the 14th Amendment extended to a woman’s decision to have an abortion, but that right must be balanced against the state’s two legitimate interests in regulating abortions: protecting prenatal life and protecting women’s health. Arguing that these state interests became stronger over the course of a pregnancy, the Court resolved this balancing test by tying state regulation of abortion to the trimester of pregnancy. The Court later rejected Roe’s trimester framework, while affirming Roe’s central holding that a person has a right to abortion until viability. The Roe decision defined “viable” as being “potentially able to live outside the mother’s womb, albeit with artificial aid”, adding that viability “is usually placed at about seven months (28 weeks) but may occur earlier, even at 24 weeks.” Sheri Bonner, President and CEO of Pasadena Planned Parenthood thanked the two speakers for their commitment to Planned Parenthood and for their thoughtful speeches and invited questions from the audience. One guest asked what could be done to combat ignorance. Reverend Ed Bacon said simply “Tell a story and listen.” “Be a storyteller,” he asserted. Reverend Tom Davis said he agreed that storytelling was the answer and added that the pioneering work of Margaret Sanger should always be honored. Sanger, who started her campaign to educate women about sex in 1912 by writing a newspaper column called “What Every Girl Should Know.” also worked as a nurse on the Lower East Side of New York, at the

time a predominantly poor immigrant neighborhood. Through her work, Sanger treated a number of women who had undergone back-alley abortions or tried to self-terminate their pregnancies. Sanger objected to the unnecessary suffering endured by these women, and she fought to make birth control information and contraceptives available. She also began dreaming of a “magic pill” to be used to control pregnancy. “No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother,” Sanger said. Roe v. Wade prompted a national debate that continues today, about issues including whether and to what extent abortion should be legal, who should decide the legality of abortion, what methods the Supreme Court should use in constitutional adjudication, and what the role should be of religious and moral views in the political sphere. Roe v. Wade reshaped national politics, dividing much of the United States into pro-choice and pro-life camps, while activating grassroots movements on both sides. Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley works every day to reduce unintended pregnancy and keep women healthy. Planned Parenthood health centers across the country provide accurate information about contraceptive methods, comprehensive sexual health education for youth and adults, and access to the full range of reproductive health services. Nationwide, these efforts prevent an estimated 684,000 unintended pregnancies and 325,000 abortions every year.

Governor Brown to lead trade and investment mission to the People’s Republic of China Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. Thursday announced that he will lead a trade and investment mission to The People’s Republic of China in April 2013 to increase direct investment in California, build sales by California businesses and strengthen ties between the world’s second and ninth largest economies. “California’s exports are booming and our place in the world economy has never been stronger. Our ties with The People’s Republic of China in particular are deep—from the Chinese immigrants crossing the Pacific in 1848 to hosting China’s next President in Los Angeles last February,” said Governor Brown in his State of the State Address. “In April, I will lead a trade and investment mission to China with help from the Bay Area Council and officially open California’s new trade and investment office in Shanghai.”

He will be joined by a delegation of California business, economic development, investment and policy leaders on the mission, which will be organized by the Bay Area Council. As noted in his remarks, Governor Brown will re-establish California’s formal trade presence in China for the first time since 2003 by opening California’s new trade and investment office in Shanghai. The trip follows a year of significant diplomatic exchanges between the State of California and the People’s Republic of China. In February 2012 Governor Brown welcomed His Excellency Xi Jinping, Vice President of the People’s Republic of China, to California. During the visit Governor Brown announced his intention to visit China, open a trade office and form a ChinaCalifornia working group;

met privately with Vice President Xi; spoke at the China/U.S. Economic Trade Forum; and held a round table with U.S. and Chinese governors, Vice President Xi and Vice President Joe Biden. In May 2012 the Governor’s senior advisor on jobs and business development Mike Rossi convened the inaugural Joint Economic Committee between California and China’s Jiangsu Province. In July 2012 Governor Brown’s Secretary for Food and Agriculture, Karen Ross, hosted a Chinese delegation led by the Vice Minister of China’s Ministry of Commerce, Mr. Wang Chao. And in December, the Governor’s Executive Secretary Nancy McFadden hosted a Chinese delegation led by Deputy Governor Xia Geng of Shandong Province. Additional details and a full itinerary will be released in coming weeks.


City of Bell makeover – At least on the Web The City of Bell successfully launched a new official city website, www.cityofbell. org, further demonstrating its commitment to implement good government and best practices by bringing online transparency to City Hall functions and enhancing the provision of information to the community. The new City website features a “Transparency” drop-down option on its main navigation bar that centralizes City documents for easy access including the City of Bell Checkbook; upto-date employee salaries; contracts with vendors; as well as financial and election materials. Also prominently displayed on the home page are colorful icons for those most frequently requested City services. “The new City of Bell website launch is an important tool in our effort to move the City forward and enhance transparency to City Hall functions”, stated Bell Mayor Ali Saleh. “We have brought City Hall to residents’ front door providing detailed information about local government and its’

who along with his fellow film producers, Steven Spielberg and Gerard R. Molen brought us the film “Schindler’s List,” which remains to this day as the definitive movie of all time depicting the atrocities of the Holocaust and a German businessman named Oskar Schindler who saved thousands of Polish-Jewish refugees through his human acts of kindness. In 2005 the United Nations General Assembly designated the date of January 27th as International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. It is on this day that every member state of the United Nations has an obligation to honor the victims of the Holocaust and to develop educational programs to help prevent future genocides.”

Tickets for the event are $25 each and can be purchased by calling The MENSCH International Foundation at 760-416-3685 or online at Free Parking will be provided for the event in the Writer Guild Theater’s adjacent parking garage structure located on south Wilshire Boulevard on the west side of Doheny Drive in Beverly Hills, CA. During the course of the evening Branko Lustig will reminisce about his days in Auschwitz and his historic acceptance speech at the 1993 Academy Awards when he received the Best Picture Oscar along with fellow producers Steven Spielberg and Gerard R. Molen for the film “Schindler’s List” by saying: “My number was A3317. I am a Holocaust survivor. It’s a long

way from Auschwitz to this stage. I want to thank everyone who helped me to come so far. People died in front of me at the camps. Their last words were: ‘Be a witness of my murder.’ Together we journeyed by helping Steven to make this movie. I hope I fulfilled my obligation to the innocent victims of the Holocaust. In the name of the six million Jews killed in the Shoah, and other Nazi victims, I want to thank everyone who acknowledged this movie. Thank you.” On May 2, 2011, Lustig returned to barrack No. 24 at Auschwitz, at the age of 78, to celebrate his bar mitvah (rite of passage), which he missed as a 13-year-old boy growing up, having been deported from his Croatian hometown to the death camp at the age of 10.

services – information that can be conveniently accessed 24/7. By creating a new space in the virtual Bell neighborhood we’ve also relieved long lines at public counters while enabling residents to easily find recreation classes for their children, download City applications and forms, and submit public records request directly to the City Clerk. This new website isn’t just a stark contrast to the past; it’s a complete 360 degree turn that clearly demonstrates our continued commitment to transparency”. Last spring, the City conducted a thorough Request For Proposal (RFP) process for Website Design Development and chose Vision Internet, a Los Angeles-based website design firm as the preferred candidate. Vision Internet worked closely with the City to model a website that would become a standard for other agencies to emulate. The City also sought website transparency guides in this effort, including those written by the Sunshine Review and the Institute For Local Government, non-profit organizations that seek to

promote ethics and transparency in government. The new City of Bell website builds Transparency in a number of languages and with diverse communities through the use of Google Translator, an online feature which can translate the website’s content into 64 languages making it available not only to residents within the City of Bell, but beyond its borders. For those members of the community who do not have internet or computer access, the City continues to provide free public access computers at all City facilities including parks, the Bell Community Center and the Bell Technology Center. Residents are invited to stop in and explore the new website. In the coming months, the new City of Bell website will continue to evolve as up-to-date information is uploaded, and both social media platforms and increased functionality are incorporated to reflect the Council’s resolve to transparency and best practices.
