Shortly before 2:30 a.m. Sunday the Arcadia Police Department received a call of a subject playing loud music while on the front lawn of a home located in the 2500 block of South Santa Anita Avenue. An Arcadia police officer was dispatched and arrived to find a lone male to the front of the residence. The male subject was asked to turn the music down and he said he would comply. About an hour later, after learning the residence in question was reported to be abandoned, officers went back to the location and again contacted the lone male, still to the front of the home. While talking with the officers, the male said the home belonged to a friend and that he had permission to stay at the location, although he could not remember the

BY TERRY MILLER Senator Alex Padilla Monday announced legislation to help create an earthquake early warning system similar to that which is in place and currently in use in Japan. Padilla’s announcement comes after a joint study with Caltech and Japan Agency

for Marine Earth-science and Technology published describing for the first time a statewide California earthquake involving the Los Angeles area and San Francisco. Padilla, who was joined by a panel of seismologists representing Caltech, UC Berkeley and the US Geological Survey said, "California is going to have an earthquake

Dorothy's Place Another change

By Dorothy Denne A couple of weeks ago I wrote that my life was going to change. I was going to become very rich. I was about to win $5,000 a week for the rest of my life. You and I both know that column was written in jest. I had no such illusion but it was fun to play around with ideas of what I would do with it if I did win such a prize. Well. This week I was hit with a change that

is not an illusion, it is a fact. Two Buck Chuck will be no more! Those of you who are regular readers have often read of the pleasure I take in putting my feet up and having a glass of wine while reading a good book or listening to beautiful music. The books and music varied, but my wine of choice was usually Two Buck Chuck Merlot from Trader Joe’s. Imagine my disappointment when I heard Two Buck Chuck would be no more. Chuck is really Charles Shaw. Charles’ Merlot is still going to be around but it will now cost $2.49 a bottle. Considering the fact that my glass of wine consists of half a glass of wine

mixed with half a glass of diet 7Up, I think I can still afford it. It’s just that, somehow, Two Forty Nine Chuck just doesn’t have the same ring as Two Buck Chuck. Aah, the little changes in life that really don’t make much difference, yet we take note of them. Fortunately I still have one un-opened bottle of Two Buck Chuck in the closet so, at half and half, I have a little while to adjust. Then I’ll zip over to TJ’s and buy a couple of two forty niners. I’ll come home, turn on one of my favorite CDs, grab a good book, put my feet up and enjoy a glass of my newly tagged Chuck and Seven. Now that kind of has a ring doesn’t it?

Day one NAMM By Terry Miller

Brian Wilson speaks at the NAMM Show. -Photo by Terry Miller

I’ve attended NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants ) conventions since the 1980’s and it’s always a kid in a candy store kind of feeling for me as a

drummer and photojournalist. But last Thursday I was hoping to get the first day off to a great start by seeing Brian Wilson play and sing a couple

of songs at the Gibson booth. I’d been alerted via email in the morning of Wilson’s noon appearance but the car just wasn’t fast enough to get there in time. I should have driven my Little Deuce Coupe. I missed Brian’s performance by a mere ten minutes. Merde. For those of you who don’t speak French it means “ damn”. Oh well. I did however, hear about the performance by a guy from Gibson who said they played “ God only knows how much I love you…..” I was even more devastated. My favorite Beach Boy song – I missed the chance of a lifetime to see the legend in an intimate setting sing my favorite song by a mere ten minutes. So, I went off the Press Room to console myself with a cup of coffee and start planning the rest of the afternoon.

El Monte alarm program phone number and website activated New and improved customer service enhancements of the City of El Monte’s alarm program are now in effect. The program, formerly administered by the Police Department, is now administered by PMAM Corporation. PMAM is a company which specializes in managing municipal alarm tracking and billing. The program under the current ordinance allows a permit holder three false alarms for either operator error or equipment malfunction before charging a fee for the fourth false alarm and subsequent false alarms. In addition to managing municipal alarm tracking and billing, PMAM will also process all alarm permit applications and alarm permit renewals. PMAM has a toll-free number of 1-877-230-1023, a fax line of 1-972-831-7499,

and a state of the art secure website to make safe internet transactions for alarm permit(s) and other payments. The intent of having the alarm program managed by specialists is to reduce the significant number of false alarms. The goal is for alarm owners to be more accountable for the operation of their units. The Police Department data reveals approximately 98 percent of alarm activations are false. Property owners are strongly encouraged to ensure their family members and/or employees are properly trained how to operate their respective alarm systems. Please make sure your alarm equipment is working properly, and call your alarm company if repairs are needed. These non-critical calls for service prevent, hinder

or delay the amount of time police officers can actually spend responding to emergencies and crime prevention. El Monte is similar to many other municipalities which have experienced very high rates of false alarms, and have outsourced their alarm programs to alarm specialists. The El Monte Police Department will continue to provide excellent customer service and provide 24-hour response to alarm calls. Residents and business owners with questions are asked to use the toll-free number of (877) 230-1023 or go to the online link. A link titled “Alarm Permit” is posted on the City’s website at http://www.ci.el-monte.ca.us/ or go directly to: https:// www.cityalarmpermit.com/ fams/citizen/city/elmonte

Church vandalism investigated as Hate Crimes in Arcadia Two Arcadia churches have been broken into and vandalized within the last two weeks. The first incident occurred overnight, Saturday to Sunday, January 19-20, 2013, at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 400 West Duarte Road. The suspect(s) forced open a door to the church office, ransacked the interior, and threw clergy robes on the ground. A fire extinguisher was discharged in the office and the suspect(s) burned part of a portrait hanging on the office wall before making off with a guitar and other sound equipment. Early Wednesday, shortly after 2:30 a.m., the police department received a 9-1-1 call from a passerby reporting suspicious activity at Holy An-

geles Church, 330 Campus Drive. Arcadia Police and Fire units arrived on scene and discovered an administrative building on the church property had been broken into and there was smoke inside the building. Evidence of a small fire was found against an interior hallway wall, having burnt a small area of carpet and papers. It appears the suspect(s) broke an office window to gain entry. Once inside, two religious statues and a DVD player were broken and tossed to the ground inside a small chapel, and an interior officer door was kicked in. It appeared the suspect(s) also rummaged through several rooms inside the building. These crimes are being investigated by Ar-

cadia Police Detectives. Due to the similarities of the crimes and the proximity of the churches, it is our belief the crimes may be related and it is our desire to inform the community; and specifically, other area religious facilities to be on watch for similar or suspicious activity. Although neither crime involved entry to the church sanctuaries, both events involved religious artifacts or items and we are treating these as religious based hate crimes. Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to contact the Arcadia Police Department at (626) 574-5150. If you prefer to provide information ANONYMOUSLY, call “Crime Stoppers” 800-222-TIPS (8477).

amount of money. The suspect was described as a Male, Hispanic, in his early thirties, and he had a black mustache. The suspect was wearing a black sweatshirt, black hat, and black glasses. The investigation is being conducted by Arcadia Police Department Detec-

Get to know your local police in El Monte

-Photo Courtesy of EMPD

The El Monte Police Department would like for its citizens to get to know the faces behind the names of those that proudly serve you. Most do not know that many of the officers at El Monte Police have ties and history with the City of El Monte long before they worked here.

Sergeant Roger Cobian is a life-long resident of El Monte and a proud product of our El Monte Schools. He attended Mulhall School for Kindergarten through 6th grade, Frank Wright for 7th and 8th grades and graduated from Arroyo High School in 1993. After high school, Sergeant Cobian attended Citrus College in Glendora. There he joined the world renowned Citrus Singers and had the opportunity to sing classical and pop music in countries all over the world. When Sergeant Cobian finished with the Citrus Singers, he knew he wanted to give back to his community. He put himself through the Rio Hondo Police Academy in Whittier and just two weeks after graduating the Academy as Vice-President, Sergeant

Cobian was hired by the City of El Monte as a police officer. In 2004 Sergeant Cobian earned the Department’s Medal of Valor for saving two people from a burning car. After seven years working patrol and as a School Resource Officer, Sergeant Cobian was selected to work at the department’s Community Relations Office. There he has worked extensively with families and schoolaged children to find long term solutions to problems they face. Sergeant Cobian has also continued his interest in performing in the last few years by starring in the musicals “Beauty and the Beast,” and “Phantom.” He is the proud father of four and happily married to his wife who is an educator and full-time mother.

Science experiment at Arcadia High School creates hazardous materials incident On Monday, January 28, 2013, at approximately 2:55 pm, Arcadia Fire Department responded to a reported hazardous materials spill and fire at Arcadia High School, 180 Campus Drive. Responding units, including Engine 105, Truck 105, Engine 106, Rescue Ambulance 105, and Battalion 105, with assistance from Burbank, Glendale, and South Pasadena Fire Departments, provided emergency services and investigation at the

scene of the incident, with Arcadia Police Department providing traffic control. Upon arrival, Arcadia Firefighters were directed to Room S-106, a science lab where a small fire, resulting from a chemical reaction, had been extinguished. Remaining students, faculty and staff were evacuated from the science building and police closed Duarte Road west of Santa Anita Avenue during the investigation. The fire resulted from

an experiment that required students to bring the chemical, cyclohexane, from a frozen to a liquid state through a heating process. Cyclohexane, a highly flammable chemical, is routinely used in making nylon and solvents. Although cyclohexane is a high inhalation irritant, no symptoms or complaints were reported by students or staff members. Firefighters cleared the scene at approximately 4:30 pm.

PCC students continue fight to reinstate winter into academic calendar By Jim E. Winburn Students at Pasadena City College held a public meeting on campus Thursday to discuss the new trimester calendar system, which is already causing problems for students wanting to transfer to the university level. “A.S. took a position against the calendar for a multiple of reasons,” Simon Fraser, president of the Associated Students of PCC, said to an audience of nearly 45 students and faculty members. “We believed it was too rushed a decision at the time. We believe students really valued the winter intersession and wanted to keep it.” According to an Aug. 15 online report by the Associated Students, the PCC Board of Trustees said that changing over to a new trimester system (that includes only a fall, spring and summer session) would save the college $1.55 million over a two-year period. At its Aug. 29 meeting, the board approved the tentative 2012-13 Student Calendar, dropping the winter intersession and moving up the beginning of the spring semester to the beginning of January. The Spring 2013 semester began on Jan. 7, and will end on May 4. The Associated Students protested the abrupt change to the academic calendar because it gives students far too little time to adjust their educational plans, especially for those who are planning to transfer. As part of its resolution to advocate for a short-term winter intersession period, the ASPCC said the muchneeded 6-week winter classes serve a purpose for “transferring, jump-starting students towards completion, and sometimes course repetition.” The short term winter intersession had previously begun in the second week of January and ended in February before the Spring Semester was due to begin. Shifting the calendar around in this manner creates quite an upheaval in

planning for students who wish to have all their classes (especially in terms of grades) transcripted and approved before transferring to a university in the fall. The biggest issue raised at the town hall meeting was with the timing of a student’s transfer. Although all Summer One classes completed immediately before a student’s transfer are now transcripted as “spring” classes - solving one problem - it does not solve the issue of completing transcripts and grades in time for the fall transfer. “What we have been told is if you take a class for the Summer One period, before Jun. 30, it will transcript as a spring class,” said Fraser, explaining that the University of California system will recognize the class as having been completed in the spring. However, “Grading will have to be in at a certain time for them to transcript out,” Fraser said. “Faculty will be made aware of that, and it’s going to be on them to do it.” But according to some students who spoke at the town hall, irreparable harm has already been suffered by many students wanting to transfer this fall but were given bad advice. “As our student government, you have a responsibility to those students, who, once winter was cancelled, were not sure whether or not summer was going to transfer because of mixed messages and misinformation,” said a graduating student by the name of Sarah. “Those students didn’t apply based on their understanding and what they were told by counselors and teachers of the school, by the administration of the school - that they were not going to be able to transfer. So those students missed the boat.” Noting that the Board of Trustees has had 6-8 months since changing the academic calendar to inform the student body on transfer issues, Fraser said it was time to

hold their feet to the fire. “What I will communicate to the administration is that in two weeks we would like to see something in writing from the UC and CSU systems that indicates they are A) aware of our calendar change, and B) are willing to accept Summer One classes for full 2013 transfers in writing,” said Fraser. Krista Walter, Co-Chair of the PCC Calendar Committee, said her group has formally requested a reinstatement of the winter intersession for the next calendar year. “The Calendar Committee does not determine whether or not we have a winter or a summer, and the original calendar with winter, we worked really hard on it,” Walter said, adding, “And we were all really stunned to find it cancelled without any recourse.” Dr. Eduardo A. Cairo, a history professor in Social Sciences, said the PCC Faculty Association supports the students one hundred percent, but that a consensus among students must be reached regarding the need for the winter intersession. “There’s no point in fighting for an issue that the majority do not want. But if there was to be a poll by the Associated Students to determine whether or not the majority of the students on campus would like for winter to be reinstated, they will find the support of the faculty association.” The ASPCC had previously noted it has received “overwhelming and near universal support for a winter intersession on campus” through their own surveys, opinion polls and public comments from town hall meetings. Fraser told those in attendance at the town hall meeting that he would post any updates to the group’s progress on the Associated Students’ website at http:// as.pasadena.edu.

Monrovia's Mayor speaks loud and clear about Monrovia's future

Continued from page 1

As she cited accomplishment after accomplishment there were numerous breaks for applause. She listed several specific goals the city had set for itself over the last ten years including the new library, securing the Gold Line, reviving Old Town, bringing in new businesses and homes, revitalizing the neighborhoods, and preserving the hillside. And after each goal, Lutz proudly proclaimed: “Done!” And each drew applause. Perhaps one of the most sustained ovations occurred when the mayor praised and thanked the retiring member of the council for his dedication to the city and for his many years of service saying it had been her “privilege to work with a great leader, my friend, Mayor Pro Tem Joe Garcia.” Lutz listed Garcia’s many accomplishments including the establishment of the skate park, the reverse 911 system, and 24-hour access to city hall via the Internet. She noted, “He has also left an indelible mark on our City landscape through his patronage of the Arts in Public Places Program.” The speech with its numerous interruptions lasted

approximately 45 minutes. The entire text of the speech is available for review on the city’s website: www. ci.monrovia.ca.us The mayor concluded her address saying: “Our city may face unprecedented financial challenges, but our capacity is not determined by our bottom line. “We are determined by the resourcefulness, passion, and innovation of our community. “Monrovia’s capacity is determined by you.” Earlier in the speech she had also engaged those present to become involved by pointing out that the city would be electing new members of the city council in April. “We have a chance to participate in the democratic process of choosing who will lead our great City in the years to come, and I encourage everyone here to take part.” Part of the process of planning the city’s future recently has been a program called PlanMonrovia through which the council reached out to members of the community to assist in setting goals for the city. For the last several months the consulting firm of Hampian, Statler

and Multari, known as the HSM Team, has been working with a city on this project. The project has been put out to bid with HSM bid coming in at $38,000. On Tuesday, the council held a special meeting, a study session on the project. The HSM Team presented its Community Outreach Results (this entire report is available on line at the city’s website under the City Government Section, Agendas, January 29 – special session. To read the entire report of HSM and the city staff’s summary of the current status of the city’s programs and budget, click on the agenda item: “Overview and Presentation of the PlanMonrovia GoalSetting Input Stage,” on the agenda of that special meeting. The report details all the results of the several methods HSM used to determine the goals of the public including outreach including surveys sent out in utility bills, workshops held with both the public (on two occasions) and the city’s own board and commission members, and MindMixer, an on-line discussion site. Based on this information, the council was given a

list of what Team HSM called the top fifteen “themes” represented. They pointed out that Public Safety was cited twice as often as any other item even Economic Development which was the next more frequent “theme.” Public Safety was listed by more than 80% of those involved. They also noted that the Police Department was noted twice as often as the Fire Department. The Team also noted that the interest levels fell into three distinct groups after Public Safety. The next three were grouped closely, Economic Development, Education (which the team pointed out was largely not within the purview of the city) and Street and Sidewalk Maintenance. These themes were mentioned by between thirty and forty per cent of those surveyed. The next tier had themes cited by more than 20%, but less than 30% of those who were involves. These areas are Old Town, Parks & Recreation, and the Gold Line. The balance were noted by less than twenty per cent and were (in order) Code Enforcement/Community Appearance, Traffic Safety/ Congestion, Environmen-

Joe Garcia received an ovation when Mayor Lutz said it was a “privilege to work with a great leader, my friend, Mayor Pro Tem Joe Garcia.” -Photo by Terry Miller

tal Protection/Open Space, Youth Services, Tree Trimming, Neighborhood Parking, Balanced Budget and Tax & Fee Reductions. The consulting firm noted that even within these themes there were large differences of opinion. As an example they noted the theme “Tree Trimming.” In this area some wanted trees trimmed more often, others less often and others wanted trees removed. Some requested the existing tree be replaced with native or with less invasive trees. They also noted that some “theme” such as a bal-

anced budget were a given issue, while others such as Education were not principally the responsibility of the city. After the review of the summary, the city council was given what the HSM team called its “homework.” Each council member was asked to make a list of the goals he or she felt was most important and be prepared to discuss those goals and RE the goals of the other DU council ED member at the next Cstudy PR sesICE sion scheduled for February 9 at 9 am in the Community Policing Room at the Police Department.

Indoor pot operation in Arcadia Continued from page 1

friend’s name. The man did produce a key to the front door, unlocked it, and opened the door for officers. When the door was opened, officers saw items consistent with an indoor marijuana grow and smelled the overpowering odor of marijuana. The home was secured and Arcadia detectives were called to assist. After obtaining a search warrant, Arcadia detectives searched the home and found the majority of the residence being used as a sophisticated, indoor marijuana grow operation. In excess of 500 marijuana plants were found in various stages

of growth throughout the home. The grow consisted of multiple rooms with irrigation, lighting, ventilation, and electrical wiring run throughout. It appeared the electrical set-up was bypassing the meter and also tapping directly into electrical service. Every room, closet, hallway, and useable space inside this approx. 2,500 sq. foot, 4-bedroom home was being used to facilitate the operation. There was no evidence of this being a medical marijuana related grow. Chuan W. Pang, 30-years-old from Alhambra, was arrested and booked at the Arcadia

City Jail on felony charges of cultivation of marijuana. Pang is not believed to the property owner. The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to contact the Arcadia Police Department at (626) 574-5150, case #1300421. If you prefer to provide information ANONYMOUSLY, you may call “Crime Stoppers” by dialing 800-222TIPS (8477), texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or using the tip page at Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers, www. http://lacrimestoppers.org/.

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.

Monrovia police recover large cache of stolen property

Global music and sound industry finds success at the 2013 NAMM Show

The business of making music takes center stage, as the number and variety of buyers increase

By susan motander On Friday, January 18, the Monrovia Police Department discovered a large amount of stolen property in the process of making what police refer to as a welfare call. This ultimately led to the arrest of two people and the recovery of a large cache of stolen property. According to Chief of Police Jim Hunt, at approximately 6:00 p.m. on that day, the department received a call from a distraught parent saying their daughter was suicidal. Patrol responded to the location given and a searched for the suicidal subject. In the process of that search, they noticed a large number of cameras and other items as well as a woman for whom there was an outstanding arrest warrant. The woman was wanted for receiving stolen property. She was arrested at the scene. Hunt said that as a result of these facts, a search warrant was obtained for residence and more stolen property was found. Another person who was wanted by Burbank Police for receiving stolen property also arrived at the house and was arrested. In addition to the arrest of these two individuals, the young woman, whose concerned parents first took police to the location, was located and placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold. Monrovia Police detectives began researching the property recovered at the home and determined that it had come from at least four different victims throughout Los Angeles County. Further investigation led the investigators to believe that there was additional stolen property in a storage unit in West Covina under the control of one of the suspects in custody.

MPD investigators obtained a search warrant for the storage unit. Hunt said “It was packed from floor to ceiling, front to back with stolen property.” He added, “We don’t have facilities for storing that much, so we called upon the Sheriff’s Department. They showed up with a box truck. We completely filled it.” Sheriff’s investigators are assisting Monrovia Police in processing all the property recovered. Among the recovered items are jewelry, musical instruments and equipment, cameras, and electronics including lap top computers and phones. Once all the property has been processed, Monrovia Police Department will an-

nounce the ways victims may begin to apply to recover their property. Information about the recovery process will be posted on the MPD website: http://www.ci.monrovia.ca.us/ city-government/departments/ police-department-homepage. While the processing is being completed, Chief Hunt gave some advise to victims of thefts: “Be sure you have a copy of the original police report of the theft itemizing the items that were lost.” In addition, Hunt said that photographs of lost jewelry or other items, as well as serial numbers and descriptions of any distinguishing marks, and receipts for any of the property that was taken will also be helpful in claiming it.

Everyday is an open house:

When the business is music, it’s a fine line between good times and work. Produced by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), the NAMM Show provided the most effective platform across four jam-packed days filled with new product debuts, networking, and educational opportunities set to the soundtrack of live music and conversation among friends old and new. From January 24-27, every aspect of the music instrument and products industry including retailers, corporate buyers, artists and sound and lighting professionals did business with nearly 5000 unique brands in Anaheim, CA. “Our industry, like many others, is in the midst of rapid change,” said Joe Lamond, president and CEO, NAMM. “And I believe NAMM Members who came to Anaheim to see the latest product innovations, attend NAMM University sessions, and network with friends and peers will be uniquely positioned to take advantage of the business opportunities in the year ahead.” Based on member feedback, NAMM made a concerted effort to increase buyer (blue) badges and decrease guest (yellow) badges to create the most businessfriendly event in years. Buyers increased 4 percent over 2012, while non-industry guests decreased 16 percent. The important increase in buyers was attributed to more retail music stores, corporate buyers including houses of worship, live event venues and touring profes-

sionals, casinos, and studios sending buyers to shop the NAMM Show. The mix of industry professionals resulted in an incredibly businessfocused, yet vibrant show made up of 93,908 total registrants. “We were approached by many potential new business partners, so it became an even broader type of business show,” said Tony Moscal, general manager of business development for Peavey. “We’re glad to see that NAMM’s provided with a full representation of an industry business show in addition to traditional retailers. This has been one of the most exciting, rewarding show’s that I’ve been involved with since my first NAMM Show in 1981.” “I attend for the latest, greatest and best our industry has to offer. This show was rich with industry trends, the latest in gear and top notch sessions at the Idea Center,” said Billy Cuthrell, owner of Progressive Music Center in North Carolina. “I consider my time at NAMM a major part of my business success throughout the year.” For the first time, a Mayor led the NAMM Show. NAMM president and CEO Joe Lamond proclaimed world-renowned musician and humanitarian Stevie Wonder as Mayor of the NAMM Show with a lifetime, all-access badge to NAMM. “My goal is before it’s my time, I hope to be able to make music accessible to everybody, children and adults,” said His Honor (Wonder). “It’s a whole new world of music and instrument discovery at the show every year.” Wonder, one of hundreds of major artists at the NAMM Show, walked the show trying out new products and meeting with friends. While live music played and celebrities visited, the resounding sentiment on the show floor was that the industry was getting down to business. “Roland Corporation U.S. is very pleased with the 2013 NAMM Show and activity on our new booth and location,” Kim Nunney, president of Roland. “Traffic was steady throughout the show and dealers responded very positively to our new products, Content Check-

points and media stage. A great show, we’re looking forward to a strong 2013.” The opening of the 2013 NAMM Show marked not only the start of the world’s premier gathering for the music instrument and product industry, but also the debut of the Anaheim Convention Center’s new outdoor venue, The Anaheim Grand Plaza. The Grand Plaza features 100,000 square feet of outdoor meeting and event space, and during the NAMM Show an outdoor stage for live performances. NAMM Show-goers enjoyed a series of spectacular live performances all day, every day throughout the four-day show. Tower of Power, The Living Legends Jam (with band members from The Eagles, Black Sabbath, and Fleetwood Mac, among others), and CTA (California Transit Authority) rocked the Grand Plaza hard and gave the energetic nighttime crowds plenty of authentic rock and roll. “There’s great talent with Tower of Power and a community feeling [on the Grand Plaza]. It’s great to wind down out here after the day, while enjoying some music with good friends and business partners,” said Jerry Loos, owner, Jerry Loos Guitar Training, Westerville, OH. The industry quickly adapted to the new show perimeter that reached the convention center’s exterior walls, effectively adding to the show’s footprint. By moving registration to the hotels, NAMM created an easier to navigate show with fewer ID checks.

Doo Dah Parade shakes, rattles and rolls through East Pasadena - April 27 Daring to go where no parade has gone before, this year’s Pasadena Doo Dah Parade will again bring its own brand of raucous eccentricity East. The 2013 Parade takes place on Saturday, April 27, stepping off around11am or whenever Snotty Scotty is ready in East Pasadena along Colorado Boulevard.

Known as the twisted sister of the conventional Rose Parade, the Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade began as a grassroots event in 1978 to gain national attention for its eccentric and, often, irreverent satire. The parade which has spawned numerous off-beat replicants across the country was named by Readers Digest as “America’s Best Parade,” and was recently featured in the book 50 Places You Must Visit Before You Die! This year’s spectacle

senger – changing the focus of the investigation from a traffic accident to attempted murder. Officers searched the Chantry Flats area for the suspect for quite some time, but were unable to locate him. A few hours later, the Sierra Madre Police Department received a 911-phone call from a residence located at the Santa Anita Dam Facility, which is owned by Los Angeles County. Residents there reported that the intruder had entered their home through a front door, and refused to leave. The residents, fearing for their safety, fled the residence and waited nearby for officers to arrive. Continued investigation suggested that the suspect

involved in the Dam Facility Residence incident was the same suspect that had attempted to drive both himself and his passenger off Chantry Flats earlier in the evening. As a result, Arcadia Police Personnel requested assistance from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Special Enforcement Bureau (SWAT) in apprehending the outstanding suspect – still believed to be holed-up in the Dam Facility Residence. After several hours, the Sheriff’s SWAT Team entered the residence and took custody of the intruder / suspect. Please contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Headquarters Bureau, at (323) 526-5541, for information regarding

the suspect’s apprehension inside the residence. Arcadia Police Officers took custody of the suspect at the scene, and have identified him as Patrick Anthony Gonzalez, a 21-year-old Los Angeles resident. Mr. Gonzalez was transported to a nearby hospital for evaluation prior to being booked for various charges to include attempted murder. The investigation is continuing by Arcadia Police Department Detectives. Anyone with information is asked to call the Arcadia Police Department at 626-5745150. You can also submit crime tips and information via text, phone, or web to LA Regional Crime Stoppers, 800-222-TIPS (8477).

LA Art Show 2013 – Where art thou By Fernando Lara As any aspiring artist would say, any kind of inspiration is definitely key in bringing out the best of your artistic ability. In today’s world with technology at our palms and finger tips, you can virtually find new art pieces in the matter of seconds, right off your cell phone to guide you to creating something amazing. Although, aside from scrambling on the web to gaze at masterpieces measuring in only fractions of the original size from renowned artist, it can never measure up to being up front and personal with an astonishing piece of artwork. I took a trip over to the LA Art Show this past weekend which took place at the Los Angeles Convention Center in downtown Los Angeles…and I got to say I was definitely left in awe to say the least of the magnitude of art work in the show. Most art shows in Los Angeles showcase a variety of work within its appropriate time period, but that wasn’t the case at the LA Art show. The exhibit hosted paintings from the historical period to the contemporary and in be-

tween. Time absolutely flew by as I strolled up and down the aisles of the show. I couldn’t keep count of how many galleries were presented at the show, but I’d say I lost count after an hour. Some of the galleries held small demonstrations, some let spectators participate among artists’ with their artwork. What amazed me the most of the show (aside from the brilliant artwork) was the convenience of being able to walk only a matter of a couple feet in any direction and it would feel as if you were jumping through time, back and forth, and again. There’s nothing more compelling than standing in front of a Matisse, that is so large you can literally appreciate every brush stroke of the painting, turn your head stare at a small showing of Norman Rockwell’s work, walk to your left and check out a whole another gallery with fascinating works of contemporary artist such as Francoise Nielly, and Malcom T. Liepke. After I left the show exhausted with tired legs, a ton of motivational handouts and

an energized drive to paint, I told myself that I have to start attending art shows more frequently. Because when you stand back and take in all that you’d seen and try to mentally digest all that you’ve witnessed, there’s definitely a nostalgic feeling coming into and out of an art show. The need to quench the thirst of artistic inspiration coming in, and the fulfillment of a creative replenishment walking out.

There was an array of gorgeous historic and contemporary pieces throughout the show. -Photos by Fernando Lara

Rep. Chu praises President Obama’s leadership creating a common sense immigration process Tuesday, in Las Vegas, Nevada, President Obama outlined his priorities to create a common sense immigration process. Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27) released the following statement in response: “Today, President Obama rang the starting bell for the immigration debate in Congress. He showed how creating a common sense immigration process will require all of us – the President, Congress, and the American people – to work together. “We are a nation found-

ed on the idea that we are all created equal, no matter what we look like or where we came from. It’s how you live your life and what you do that defines you in this country. I praise President Obama for leading the nation on key issues like keeping families together, a roadmap for citizenship, and ensuring students and scientists educated here aren’t expelled. I will fight to make our broken immigration system is fair for all.” Congresswoman Judy Chu has been a long-time proponent of Comprehen-

sive Immigration Reform and an outspoken Congressional leader on immigration issues. As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, she has jurisdiction over any immigration bill. Having sponsored numerous bills on the subject, including legislation to increase STEM visas, protect immigrant workers from abusive employers and protect immigrant women from abusive partners, Rep. Chu has put forth a number of the provisions that are now being considered for a comprehensive solution to our immigration process.

Municipal elections in Monrovia Continued from page 1

despite telling many people that he’d run for reelection, not only did not file his paperwork, but also resigned from the council the day after the filing period expired. The comments about Shaw’s resignation were almost unanimous in expressing at minimum disappointment. Others were openly angry at the action. Several expressed appreciation for his service. In regard to appointing Larry Spicer who had been filling the seat on a temporary basis in the absence of Shaw, or anyone else, the comments were more varied. Ultimately the council by general consensus agreed to table the matter until its March 5th regular meeting. Their action, in essence, allows the council to continue as it did prior to the appointment of Spicer and after the departure of Shaw to his military duty. The discussion regarding whether or not to hold the scheduled election was lengthier. Since, if the election were to be held, all the positions on the ballot would be listed, City Clerk Alice Atkins and Mayor Mary Ann Lutz, excused themselves from the council chamber even before public input began. City Treasurer Steve Baker, although not usually a part of council deliberations, also left the room. City Attorney Craig Steele gave the administrative report on the issue. He noted that since Council Member Joe Garcia had announced his retirement and that he would not file for reelection, the filing period was extended for five additional days as

provided by statute. Since Shaw did not file for his own office, he could not file for it, but since Garcia had not filed, Shaw could file for that office, but did not. Since the statutory extension period had ended, the council had only two options according to Steele, either to cancel the election and appoint all the candidates who had qualified for the ballot to the positions for which they had been nominated or to hold the election. Steele noted that in his twenty years of municipal legal experience this situation was not unusual. He told the three council members hearing the matter than they were required to make a decision that day if the election were to be cancelled as the election code required that the cancellation be made 75 days before the election date. On this issue, public input was more varied, many called for an election to be held despite the fact that only the same number of candidates as offices existed in order to allow the public to write in candidates. A few even announced and implied that they were considering running a write-in campaign. Others strongly recommended that the election be cancelled in order to save money. Most estimated that the cost of holding the election could be $50,000 or more. Several suggested that the funds could be better used in replaced the dangerous play equipment that had to be removed recently from Julian Fisher park. Jules Bagnereis even asked that the filing period be reopened. The City Attorney

had already explained that this was not an option for the council. When the council began its discussion, Council Member Tom Adams acknowledged the cost of running the election in these financial difficult times, but said, “I have never considered elections to be costly. I consider elections to be priceless.” Council Member Becky Shevlin described her thought process in debating the issue with herself. She announced that she too supported holding the election. She was much more direct in her challenge to the community saying: “The opportunity to vote is so precious, come on Monrovia, get off your butts.” She added, “I hope that those who are going to participate, do it with some sort of integrity.” Garcia, who as Mayor Pro Tem chaired the meeting in the absence of the mayor, thanked everyone who appeared and those who spoke to the issues before the council. He said called it “truly representative government.” He also reviewed his thought process on the issue. He said that he supported holding the election even though the results would probably be the same as if the nominees were just appointed. He too noted the cost of the election, but said, “You cannot put a price on democracy.” On motion of Adams, and seconded by Shevlin, the three council members able to vote, did so unanimously. The election will be held on April 9.

Earthquake Early Warning Continued from page 1

down other critical infrastructure,â&#x20AC;? Padilla said. The system would not only alert the public, it would could also speed the first responders to quickly identify areas hardest hit by the quake. Caltech, USGS, and UC Berkeley operate the California Integrated Seismic Network, and collaborate on earthquake early warning research. Caltech researchers are using real-time data from this network to develop and test early warning algorithms or methods to detect and estimate earthquake size very quickly. Several of these algorithms have been deployed as part of the ShakeAlert demonstration (beta) system, which is providing warnings to test users. The Caltech group headed by Prof. Tom Heaton, includes Dr. Maren Boese, Dr. Egill Hauksson, Prof. Jim Beck, Prof. Pablo Ampuero, and severalgraduate students. The range of research activities includes methods to quantify both moderate-sized as well as major earthquakes that may affect wide areas of southern California. Caltech researchers are developing usertools to allow early adopters to get familiar with the early warning technology. They are also developing warning technology that can be used for automated smart response to safeguard large engineered systems. At this time, earthquake early warning remains a beta test system. Benefits to the public will not be realized until it is enhanced and deployed as a production system. Potential benefits from the technology include: 1. Ability to get into a safe place and protect yourself (Drop, Cover, Hold On)

2. Get out of or away from hazardous situations (high places, glass, & chemicals) 3. Stop elevators at the nearest floor to let people out 4. Protect precision manufacturing equipment and chemicals 5. Shut down operations that involve handling caustic materials (secondary disasters) 6. Slow down or stop trains 7. Temporarily halt medical procedures; & protect patients in hospitals 8. Protect students in classrooms 9. Safeguard customers in amusement parks 10. Safeguard staff working in potentially hazardous locations 11. Improved and nearreal time situational awareness The initial cost estimate for the system is $80 million. Padilla said that with the magnitude 6.7 Northridge Earthquake claiming 60 lives and causing at least $13 billion in damage, the system

is an intelligent investment. "About 90% of the world's earthquakes and over 80% of the world's strongest quakes occur along the Pacific Ring of Fire. The Ring of Fire includes the very active San Andreas Fault zone in California. We all know a big quake will hit again in the future. We should be smart and use our advanced science and technology to detect seismic activity and alert people in advance of an approaching quake," Padilla said. Indeed, the Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast released in 2008 predicted a 99.7 percent likelihood of a magnitude 6.7 earthquake in California in the next 30 years and a 94% chance of a magnitude 7.0. Japan, Taiwan, Mexico, Turkey, Romania, Italy and China either have or are working on earthquake early warning systems.

Life Remembered Barbara Garrone Portantino (1931-2013) Former Assembly member Anthony Portantino’s mother has passed away: The popular Assembly member sent the following tribute via email and we’d like to share it with you: “She was 81 years old and she had a very full life. Barbara maintained her positive spirit to the end. Many of you met her during her visits to California, were extremely kind to her while she was here, continued to inquire about her and sent your prayers often this past year. My entire family thanks you for your warmth toward our Mom. I was very glad that Ellen, Sofia, Bella and I surprised her on Christmas morning. The girls, wearing bows in their hair, were her presents. Christmas and the two days after it were about the last three days she was up and active. Unfortunately, in the past three weeks, she experienced a quick and deep decline. My brother Phil and my sister-in-law Nancy were by her side when she left us. As many of you know, my dad died when I was eleven, leaving Barbara and four children with limited means. She did a remarkable job as the foundation

of our family and as our nurturing parent. Three of her four children graduated from college and the fourth went on to be a very successful entrepreneur. My oldest brother Phil, who was a high school senior when my dad died, became only the second person in our extended family to graduate from college. She wouldn’t have it any other way. Born in Long Branch, New Jersey, Mom helped her own mother run a small rooming house. Her father died when she was seven. She graduated from high school in 1950 and became a secretary in New York City. She met my dad, Tony at a Fort Monmouth mixer. The rest, as they say, is history. She quit her job and became a traditional Italian American mom raising Philip, MaryAnn, Michael and me through the 1960’s and 1970’s. I think she did a remarkable job. She loved making Halloween costumes. Almost every year, one of the four of us would win a trophy because of her work. Thanksgiving was a day robustly celebrated at our house with pasta and turkey on the menu. Every Sunday, I came home from church to a frying pan full

of meatballs, quickly eaten while I watched the weekly Abbott and Costello movie shown Sunday afternoons at that time. She never missed a Little League game, Pop Warner football game, or high school event that featured one of her children. She instilled in all of us a positive spirit and warmth that we carry as her legacy each and every day. A truly amazing woman, my mother survived an extremely difficult adolescence and the death of her husband with an uncanny ability to see the best in all people and an amazing belief in her children. She was not a complex person, but inspired big dreams for everyone she touched. In our large Italian family, there is always someone mad at someone else, but no one throughout the last 80 years ever got upset at my mother. She was the one person to whom everyone stopped by to visit with or pay their respects. I am very grateful to all of her childhood friends, my cousins, aunts and uncles who continually visited her in the nursing home this past year. She was truly a “good soul,” as the old Italians would say.“ -Anthony Portantino

The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $575,918.99.

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 a 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 lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. 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 wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case TS No. 09-0042573. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
