Major crimes looking for victims of burglaries in Los Angeles Sheriff’s Detectives from the Major Crimes Bureau are looking for vic¬tims whose houses were burglarized while they were on vacation and had instructed the Los Ange¬les Times to hold delivery of their newspapers while they were gone. Investigators believe that Duane Van Tuinen (51 of Azusa) obtained the vacation lists and passed them on to a group of thieves, including Ran¬dall Whitmore (43 of La Verne), Joshua Box (43 of Arcadia) and Edwin Valentine (52 of Covina). The suspects would visit the addresses on the lists and steal valuables while the residents vacationed. More than 25 burglaries from San Gabriel Valley Cities, Hacienda Heights, Diamond Bar, Walnut and Chino Hills have been con¬firmed as a part of the con¬spiracy. Van Tuinen was an office machine repairman, contracted by distributors of the Los Angeles Times to repair office machines. Once inside of the busi¬nesses, Investigators be¬lieve that he repeatedly stole lists of Los Angeles Times newspaper subscrib¬ers who were on vacation. Van Tuinen passed them on to the suspects who carried out the Please see page 6

Assemblyman Mike Gatto bill makes it harder for hit & run drivers to evade arrest Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-43) introduced legislation today to help curb the epidemic of hit-and-run offenses in Southern California. Currently, motorists who flee the scene of an accident can simply “run down the clock” to avoid any liability whatsoever. If a motorist is not identified (which is often very difficult) within three years, the motorist cannot be prosecuted. Gatto’s bill extends the statute of limitations for such offenses to three years from the date of the offense, or one year after the suspect is identified by law enforcement, whichever is later. The Legislature has passed similar changes to statutes of limitations for crimes with hard-to-identify perpetrators, like clergy abuse. Eric Bruins, Planning & Policy Director for the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, noted that bicyclists and pedestrians are particularly vulnerable to hit-and-run collisions that result in death or serious
bodily injury. “It’s hard for us to encourage people to bike and walk when our streets are treated like the Wild West,” said Bruins. “The LA County Bicycle Coalition commends Assemblyman Gatto for bringing attention to this issue and giving hit-and-run victims hope that their perpetrators might be brought to justice once identified.” “Many hit-and-run victims suffer very serious injuries, often because they are unable to dial 9-1-1, and, of course, because the person fleeing the scene does not. Allowing hit-and-run criminals to avoid prosecution just adds insult to these injuries,” said Gatto. An investigation by the LA Weekly found about 20,000 hit-and-run crashes are recorded annually by the Los Angeles Police Department. These 20,000 incidents made up an astonishing 48 percent of all vehicle crashes in 2009, compared to an average rate of just 11 percent na-
tionwide. State data shows that 4,000 hit-and-run incidents a year in Los Angeles lead to injury or death. Unfortunately, most of these incidents are never prosecuted, in part, because of the statute of limitations running out. “This is a relatively easy and sensible fix to the law, so that people who would otherwise hit-andrun realize that they will be prosecuted, no matter how long it takes.”
Speaker John A. Pérez Statement on President Obama’s Speech on Immigration Reform Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) released the following statement today after attending President Barack Obama’s speech in Las Vegas, Nevada, on immigration reform. “The President showed powerful and thoughtful leadership in his remarks this afternoon. This must be the year that we address one of the critical issues facing California and the rest of the nation. I believe the President’s leadership, alongside the bipartisan proposal unveiled in the United States Senate yesterday, sets the stage for a productive and successful effort to pass and implement comprehensive immigration reform. This is certainly a complicated issue, touching on issues ranging from public health and public safety, to the very question of what it
means to be an American. There are workers waiting in line all over the world who will bring with them critical skills vital to our economy, but also their hopes and dreams for a better life for their families. Those dreams are shared by the undocumented workers who are equally vital to our economy, but who are forced to live in the perpetual shadow of deportation. Passing a sensible proposal that reforms the visa system, keeps families intact, cracks down on the worst violators of immigration and labor laws, and respects our traditions and values as a society is one of the most important public policy challenges of our times, and I am confident that with the President’s leadership, it is a challenge we can solve.”
Labor chair Roger Hernández Statement on immigration reform Assemblymember Roger Hernandez released the following statement on Immigration Reform: “As Chair of the Assembly Committee on Labor and Employment, I plan to be involved and closely monitor in the national effort for comprehensive immigration reform which is taking place in Washington, D.C. With an estimated three million undocumented immigrants in our state, it is imperative we recognize the importance of addressing comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship, the expansion of our workforce, as well as workers protections so that our economy can prosper and
employ individuals who will be contributing to our state’s General Fund. California embodies the greatest diversity in the world; we recognize we will need the collective skills and talents of all to aid our state in reaching our true potential. The topic of comprehensive immigration reform has been voiced to me by business, agriculture, labor and other groups in the hopes that a bipartisan solution can be obtained. I look forward to working with Governor Brown and my colleagues in addressing the need for comprehensive immigration reform to President Obama and our Congressional representatives in Washington, D.C.”

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 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 jampacked 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 business-friendly 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 professionals, casinos, and studios sending buyers to shop the NAMM Show. The mix of industry professionals resulted in an incredibly business-focused, 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 Checkpoints 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 fourday 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.

Earthquake Early Warning is intended to give users up to tens-of-seconds of notice By Terry Miller 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.

They are also developing warning technology that can be used for automated smart response to safeguard large engineered systems.

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.

Hawaiian Paradise on Island of Lanai By Greg Aragon Ever since reading classics such as “Mutiny on the Bounty” and “The Count of Monte Cristo” I have dreamed of deserted beaches, hidden treasures and sunken ships. Well this past week, I found all three - and much more. I discovered Lanai. My getaway to the secluded Hawaiian island began last week in Lahaina, Maui, where a friend and I boarded a ferry and journeyed 14 miles across the Auau Channel. Led by Expeditions (www.go-lanai. com), the comfortable trip was highlighted by spectacular views of the islands Maui, Molokai, Kahoolawe, and the Big Island. And since it’s now whale season, we also saw a two giant humpbacks poke their tales out of the water, as well as dolphins and colorful sail boats. After about an hour we cruised into tiny Manele Bay Harbor and stepped into a paradise surrounded by towering sea cliffs, palm trees
and warm island breezes. We then caught a shuttle to minute Lanai City, where we rented a Jeep at Dollar Rent a Car and drove to enchanting Lanai Hotel. Built as a retreat in 1923 by pineapple pioneer James Dole, the inn sits on the edge of town in a lush garden setting, beneath towering Norfolk pine trees. It features 11 charming guestrooms, a gourmet restaurant, and lots of Hawaiian atmosphere. Our cottage suite was highlighted by local Hawaiian artwork and quilts, hardwood flooring, ceiling fans, and a romantic plantation feel. The room also came with a private yard with hammock and dining area, complimentary Wifi and continental breakfast each morning. Once acquainted with the room, we grabbed a map, hopped in the Jeep and headed to mysterious Shipwreck Beach. To get there we drove up a mountainous road lined with volcanic rock and red clay. In a few miles we came to a narrow turnout, where the road became a tunnel of trees, paved with deep sand and bumpy rock and we had to put the Jeep
in four-wheel drive. The real fun had begun. For the next 1.6 miles we bounced along the northeast coast with intermittent views of the ocean and the outline of Maui. The road ended at big rock, where we parked and continued on foot to find the sunken ship. Over black volcanic rock and sandy beach and through warm tropical water we pushed on until we saw the rusting vessel, leaning in the reef and water about 100 yards off the shore. Built in the 1940s, the ship was once a ferrous-concrete oil tanker that the navy unsuccessfully tried to sink after WWII. Today, it provides a hauntingly beautiful backdrop to Lanai. From the beach, we drove to our room and then walked across the hotel lawn to Lanai City. Consisting of one block and about a dozen storefronts, the town was founded in the early 1900’s around the booming pineapple industry. It is highlighted by a few gift shops, restaurants, clothes stores and an art gallery. After the walk we went back to the hotel and changed into our good shorts
and Hawaiian shirts for dinner at Lanai City Grille, the hotel’s signature eatery. Offering locally caught fresh seafood, prime meats and their famous rotisserie chicken, the restaurant is probably the tastiest on the island. Our meal with a couple Mai Tais at the bar, before sitting down to succulent crab cakes with tomato corn salsa and chipotle remoulade, followed by a delicious Caesar salad with white anchovies; and pulled pork won tons,
with sweet chili boursin aioli and dipping sauce. For the main course I went with the cioppino, a savory mix of shrimp, scallops, oysters, clams and fish in a tomato wine sauce. I eat this dish a lot and this was by far the best I’ve had. My friend went with the special pecan crusted mahi mahi, with chipotle honey butter, chorizo mashed potatoes and veggies, which was also a delight. After dinner, we drove
to Hulopoe Beach to watch the sunset and swim in the 80-degree January water. Surrounded by cliffs and clear blue waters, Hulopoe has often been rated as one of the America’s Best Beaches.

2012 as part of the College’s social impact design program, Designmatters. The proposed site for the public artwork is Memorial Park in the City of Pasadena. “This was a competitive process, and we considered a number of very fine proposals,” says Committee Chair William M. Paparian, Esq., an attorney and former Mayor of Pasadena. “But our final decision was unanimous. We were deeply impressed by Catherine, who developed and presented an emotionally compelling design for a historical event that she initially knew nothing about. We hope that this memorial will inspire a similar emotional connection in those who encounter it, for generations to come.” “With tremendous pride, we congratulate Catherine Menard on her creative and inspiring memorial design that will have profound and lasting impact in the community,” says Art Center President Lorne M. Buchman. “The extraordinary talent and commitment of our students and faculty continue to find meaningful expression
locally and globally through a remarkable range of social impact projects.” Greater Los Angeles is home to the largest population of Armenians in the United States, many descended from families persecuted and killed between 1915 and 1921. Menard, 26, is a seventhterm Environmental Design major at Art Center and expects to graduate this year. Initially invited to join the project by Environmental Design Associate Professor James Meraz, Menard came into it with little knowledge of Armenian history. “But I have always felt drawn to history and heritage,” she says, “drawn to anything with any semblance of meaning.” Menard immersed herself in accounts of the Armenian Genocide as well as the recent history of memorial art, including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, DC, designed by Maya Lin who, like Menard, was a student at the time she won the competition. The central feature of Menard’s minimalist design—a carved-stone ba-
sin of water straddled by a tripod arrangement of three columns leaning into one another—is a single drop of water that falls from the highest point every three seconds, each “teardrop” representing one life lost. Over the course of one year, 1.5 million tears will fall into the pool, the estimated number of victims of the Armenian Genocide. “It was an honor to lead this most extraordinary challenge,” says Meraz. “In just seven weeks—half the time of our typical studio—our students worked passionately to design a memorial that has the power to provoke an emotional and contemplative response to a horrific event. In turn, this educational experience has given them new perspective, with compassion, sensitivity, remembrance and hope for the human condition.” Details regarding the project’s budget and construction will be developed over the next several months, with official groundbreaking anticipated in 2014 and dedication of the completed memorial on April 24, 2015.

California firm recalls veal trimmings due to possible E. Coli 0157:H7 contamination San Jose Valley Veal, a Santa Clara, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 1,260 pounds of veal trimmings that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The following products are subject to recall: 60-pound, cardboard box cases of “SAN JOSE VALLEY VEAL AND BEEF INC.” boneless veal trimmings. Boxes may contain the case codes: “L-1 11112,” “L-1 11212,” “L-1 11512,” “L-1 11612,” “L-1 11712,” “L-1 11812” or “L-1 11912” and also bear the establishment number “EST. 2828” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products subject to recall were produced between Nov. 1 and Nov. 9, 2012 then were transported to a federal facility for further distribution. FSIS and the establishment are concerned that some product may be frozen and in customers’ freezers. The problem was discovered when a customer tested a shipment of veal and reported non-negative results. The customer held the ship-
ment pending laboratory results, but other product from the producer’s same lot had shipped into commerce. FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider. E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2-8 days (3-4 days, on average) after exposure to the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called HUS. This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. Symptoms of HUS may include fever, abdominal pain, pale skin tone, fatigue and irritability, small, unexplained bruises or bleeding from the nose and mouth, decreased urination, and swelling. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately. FSIS advises all consumers to safely prepare their raw meat products, including fresh and frozen, and only
consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160° F. The only way to confirm that ground beef is cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria is to use a food thermometer that measures internal temperature. Consumers and media with questions regarding the recall should contact company executives, Leo or John Teixeira, at (408) 727-4404. Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov or via smartphone at m.askkaren. gov. “Ask Karen” live chat services are available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET. The tollfree USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day.

burglaries. Van Tuinen would share in the stolen property and ultimately sell it for profit. The investigation led Metro Detectives to a West Covina storage locker where, last Thursday, De¬tectives located and recov¬ered hundreds of pieces of stolen property from doz¬ens of residential burglar¬ies. Since that recovery, in¬vestigators have researched the traceable property and identified several victims. “Although much of the stolen property has been re-
turned to the right¬ful owners, we are still try¬ing to locate additional victims”, said Detective Jack Jordan of the Major Crimes Bureau. Detectives have recov¬ered collectible coins, mu¬sical instruments, collect¬ible swords, computers and jewelry from the suspects’ homes, cars and the stor¬age locker. The investigation was a joint effort involving sev¬eral southland agencies, including the Glendora, Arcadia, Chino Hills, Mon¬rovia and San Marino Po¬lice Departments
Charges are pending against the involved sus¬pects. Investigators are at¬tempting to locate as many victims as possible and to identify all of the burglaries committed by the suspects, by tracing the stolen prop¬erty. Persons who had placed themselves on the LA Times vacation list and were subsequently burglar¬ized are encouraged to con¬tact LASD Detective Jack Jordan at 562-946-7893. Be prepared to supply the police report number from the burglary and a descrip-tion.
Monterey Park Rotary receives grant for community garden $1,500 grant given by Rotary District 5300 Rotary Club of Monterey Park has received a matching grant of $1,500 from Rotary District 5300 to establish a community garden at the Repetto School in Monterey Park. Saturday, March 2nd from 8:00 A.M.-3:00 P.M. Rotarians and Mark Keppel Interacters will help the staff and interested members of the public prepare the land with a sprinkler system, install planters and plant the first vegetables. Rotary Club of Monterey Park wants to use the garden to teach children the importance and uses of plant life and how fruits and vegetables are instrumental in a comprehensive health plan. Every child that goes through the Gardening Program will learn how to utilize the land, and the ac-
companying produce that is grown, and foster a sense of self empowerment and achievement for the young people. The community garden will help Repetto School in their campaign to promote quality eating habits. The goals of this program will be to teach youth and teens that gardening, though at times tedious and long range in terms of returns, can be fun and extremely rewarding. Gardening captures a child’s interest and we hope to teach them nurturing skills, give them a sense of pride in their accomplishments and introduce them to healthy foods. The yield from the garden will be given to the community food bank and will be for sale at the local farmers’ market. The project will
show parents how to have their own home gardens. For further information contact Monterey Park Rotary President David Anantasin (213) 268-5911 or E-mail him at info@ montereyparkrotary.org. Rotary International is the oldest service organization in the world. For information on serving your local community through the Monterey Park Rotary, check: http://montereyparkrotary.org/. Monterey Park Rotary usually meets every Thursday at 12:15 P.M. at Capital Seafood, 755 W. Garvey Avenue, Monterey Park.

Attempted murder/suicide Continued from page 1
kill both himself and his passenger – 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 sus-
pect 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 sus-
pect’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 626-574-5150. You can also submit crime tips and information via text, phone, or web to LA Regional Crime Stoppers, 800-222-TIPS (8477).

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.
