7th annual Norooz Vernal Equinox celebration in Pasadena slated March 14

the evening preceding the last Wednesday of the old year, climaxing at Norooz, and concluding with Sizdeh Bedar, the thirteenth day of the New Year. Iranians spend the last day of the holidays at a picnic in the orchards, on the prairies, by the seaside, or in the foothills where family and friends eat,drink, dance and sing, and play

A group of concerned community members and leaders has come together to form the “Save Horizon TV Task Force” to chart out the legal and other elements of the recent decision by Charter Communications, Inc. to arbitrarily yank Horizon Armenian Television off its Charter lineup effective February 19, 2013. Earlier this month, the management of Horizon Armenian Television was notified by Charter Communications that the channel that has been serving the Armenian community for more than two decades would be yanked off the Charter lineup effective February 19, despite the fact that Horizon signed and delivered a contract for 2013. Deeming this action by Charter as nothing short of bullying a non-profit organization, which is dedicated to service and betterment of the community, the Save Horizon TV Task Force has initiated an online and print petition drive that

Dr. Rofagha has long believed in preserving her native culture and sharing it with the community in she lives and works as a healer. Her passion for peo-

ple, land of Iran and the hope that all nationalities can come together, in peace, led her to starting what has become an annual Pasadena tradition. Norooz, commemorating the New Year, has been celebrated in Iran, formerly Persia, throughout nearly three millennia of its recorded history.

Holden says put California’s farmers first Introduces AB 199 “Choose California Act” Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) has introduced a bill to help boost the state’s agricultural economy by putting California’s farmers and ranchers first. Under AB 199, stateowned or state-run institutions would be required to Choose California farm products. Public institutions – such as public schools, prisons or hospitals – would have to buy agricultural products grown in California before buying from out-of-state suppliers. “It just makes sense to put California-grown crops first,” said Assemblymember Holden. “It’s a win-win for everyone. The public institutions get a locally-grown product, we’re helping create opportunities for our farmers and a new appreciation for local food helps stimulate the economy.” Choose California is similar to the federal Buy America Act that requires government entities to buy American. In order to get

preferential treatment, state-grown products must not exceed the price of those grown out-of-state by more than 5%. School districts must purchase California grown products first as long as they aren’t more expensive than out-of-state products. “California farmers strongly support having California government institutions purchase food grown in our state,” California Farm Bureau President Paul Wenger said. “This bill would introduce more Californians to the amazing variety of agricultural products grown in the state and help them develop the healthy habit of seeking out nutritious, affordable California-grown foods, which will have long-term benefits to farmers and the agricultural economy.” According to the Department of Food & Agriculture, California is the number one state in agricultural output with farms and ranches earning a record $43 billion last year.

Assemblyman Gatto’s business advisory Free tours of Tournament House to resume House, ment of Roses Association; that Stimson would later becommission generates legislation to help part Tournament of the operating head- the Wrigley family had long come famous for. Displays of the Pasadena enjoyed the Rose Parade as related to Rose Bowl Games, small businesses avoid shakedown lawsuits quarters Tournament of Roses will re- it unfolded just beyond their Rose Queens and Royal On Saturday, February 2, members of Assemblyman Mike Gatto’s (D-Los Angeles) Small Business Advisory Commission voted to ask him to introduce legislation to address a new breed of shakedown lawsuits plaguing small businesses in Southern California. On Monday, February 4, Assemblyman Gatto did what the Commission asked, introducing legislation that allows a business owner who receives notice of a Proposition 65 violation to remedy a violation, and achieve compliance within 14 days, without facing exorbitant retrospective fines. Prop. 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, was passed by voters in 1986 and provides that a business in California may not expose individuals to chemicals known to cause cancer and/or reproductive toxicity without first giving clear and reasonable warning. The State of California publishes a list of more than 800 chemicals known to cause cancer, reproductive harm, or birth defects. Originally intended for serious exposures or failures to warn, Prop. 65

lawsuits have recently been abused by unethical attorneys. A coffee shop owner in Gatto’s district was sued for hundreds of thousands of dollars for failing to notify his customers that beer could cause cancer. Such suits exist because the law allows for fines of $2,500 per day, enforced by any plaintiff. Most people suing businesses expect that a small business, wary of litigation costs, will opt for a quick settlement to make the lawsuit go away. As introduced, AB 227 would further the original intent of Prop. 65, which was obtaining compliance with warnings for chemicals present on a site. It would therefore allow a business that receives a notice of a private action to correct the violation, i.e., post the Prop. 65 warning, within fourteen days without being subject to the retroactive $2,500 per day fine. “The voters passed Prop. 65 to be protected from chemicals that would hurt them. They did not intend to create a situation where shakedowns of California’s small-business owners would cause them to

want to close their doors,” said Gatto. Assemblyman Gatto formed the Small Business Advisory Commission this year to advise him on challenges facing local smallbusiness owners. The eight member commission discussed a variety of concerns impacting small businesses and voted unanimously for Gatto to introduce the bill to reform Prop. 65 so that the law’s intent is not undermined. “I had the opportunity to listen to concerns of local business owners on the Small Business Advisory Commission. The severe negative impact of shakedown lawsuits under Prop. 65 was immediately apparent,” said Gatto. “Most business owners work hard to protect customers so that the customers return. This is especially true with smallbusiness owners whose customers are neighbors, friends, and relatives. This common-sense bill will help small businesses avoid costly litigation while ensuring that the public has the proper warnings about potentially dangerous chemicals.”

Glendale community group against Charter Continued from page 1

has been met with overwhelming support by the community. In a matter of days there are thousands of responses to the online petition (http://signon.org/sign/ save-horizon-nonprofit), which is directed to Charter Communications regional management and the Federal Communications Commission. The paper petition, which was circulated at various community events since Saturday, has also received thousands of signatures. “Charter is acting in bad faith and violating the principles of a good corporate citizen by ignoring the needs of the community and being insensitive to the customers they serve,” said Zanku Armenian a spokesperson for the Save Horizon TV Task Force. “As a franchisee in Glendale, Burbank and La Crescenta, Charter serves at the pleasure of the citizens of these cities and with their callous actions they are demonstrat-

ing they don’t care about their customers.” Armenian-Americans comprise more than 40 percent of the population in Glendale and La Crescenta and 35 percent of the total population in Burbank—the area covered by Charter Communications that carries Horizon Armenian Television. Horizon Television was the first Armenian-language channel to become part of the Charter lineup with a 24-hour channel in 1999 and was chosen by the corporation because of its deep roots and its demonstrated service to the community. Horizon Television debuted in May of 1989 with a mission to inform and serve the Armenian-American community. In a short time, Horizon became a broadcast outlet for news and information and evolved into a true voice for the everexpanding Armenian community. In 1999, Horizon expanded its programming

to become the first 24-hour television channel in the Armenian community and since then, by partnering with organizations and businesses alike, it has provided groundbreaking coverage of all things Armenian for its viewers. Horizon is the Armenian language equivalent of the non-profit PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) network on mainstream television. This shocking and unilateral decision by Charter which governs the cable system and has been home to Horizon since its inception directly hits the Horizon channel and the broadcaster, whose sole purpose for operation is to serve and cater to the needs of the community. The Task Force is also exploring legal avenues to address this matter because this unexplained action by Charter is aimed at ultimately silencing a trusted and sought after voice in the community.

open for weekly public tours on Feb. 7. Tours will be offered, at no cost, each Thursday, at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. through August 29. Reservations are not required except for groups of 15 or more. Located at 391 S. Orange Grove Blvd, the house was once the home of chewing gum magnate William Wrigley Jr. and his wife, Ada. After Ada’s death in 1958, the Wrigley family presented the property to the city of Pasadena, with the request that it become the base of operations for the Tourna-

front yard. Guided tours allow visitors to see the 21-room ItalianRenaissance-style mansion designed and built in 1906 by architect G. Lawrence Stimson and his father George W. Stimson, a local builder. Tournament volunteers from its Heritage Committee, wellversed in the organization’s history as well as in the details of the house itself, conduct the tours. The interior of the house features richly paneled rooms, inlaid marble floor and an ornate molded plaster ceiling – a design element

Courts, Grand Marshals and Tournament Presidents are part of the décor. Surrounding Tournament house are the 4 1/2 acres Wrigley Gardens, which include more than 1,500 varieties of roses, camellias and annuals. The Centennial Rose Garden features the All-America Rose Selections (AARS) awardwinning Tournament of Roses rose developed especially for the Tournament of Roses centennial. Groups of 15 or more may call (626) 449-4100 for House tour reservations.

Structure fire in Monterey Park causes over $100,000 in damages On February 6, 2013, at 3:31 p.m., the Monterey Park Fire Department responded to 412 Gladys Avenue in the City of Monterey Park for a residential structure fire. Monterey Park Fire units with the assistance of Alhambra and Los Angeles County Fire Departments responded to the incident. Upon arrival, Monterey Park Fire units encountered

a single story, single family dwelling with heavy smoke issuing from rear of the structure. Initial reports to the first arriving fire units were that people were trapped inside the structure. An aggressive fire attack was established with four engine companies, and two ladder trucks that enabled the fire to be brought under control in less than 15 minutes. During fire ground op-

erations it was determined that no residents were home at the time of the fire. There were no civilians or firefighters injured during fire ground operations. The estimated cost of damage is $90,000 to the structure and $15,000in content damage. The Monterey Park Fire Department Fire Investigation Unit is currently investigating the fire to determine the cause.

Local police and sheriff on heightened alert during massive manhunt Pasadena police as well as most law enforcement agencies including Los Angeles County Sheriffs are taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of officers as the search continues for a former LAPD officer suspected of shooting three police officers, one fatally, and killing two others.

Patrol officers have been deployed as twoperson units and traffic enforcement officers who are usually on motorcycles are traveling as pairs in police cruisers . Burbank and Glendale police departments took similar steps as hunt for the cop killer spreads across the

Southland in what has become a massive manhunt for fired LAPD officer Christopher Dorner. There have been numerous ‘sightings’ of Dorner but none has proved fruitful. The latest was at Twin Towers correctional facility in Los Angeles which is, ironically, on lock down.

Kimberly Jackson selected as East Los Angeles-Montebello “Young Careerist” January 23rd Kimberly Jackson, who is the Network Director of the San Gabriel Family Promise, accepted the East Los Angeles-Montebello Business and Professional Women (BPW) 2013 “Young Careerist.” Jackson grew up in Seattle, Washington, where her parents still live. She graduated from Decatur High School in Federal Way, Washington and is an alumnus of Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. Jackson has been with Family Promise of San Gabriel Valley where she works with homeless families via an interfaith network since August 2012. In her acceptance speech Jackson talked about her experiences. She taught school in Jordan and was the founding Executive Director of Elizabeth Gregory Home in Seattle, Washington. She was the Director of Clinical Programs at the Family and Adult Service Center, Director of House of Hope Shelter,

Therapeutic Foster Home Recruiter for the Greater Seattle Area YMCA and an academic tutor and mentor for the Lummi Indian Council. In 2005 she received the “Hometown Hero” award in recognition of her service to homeless families in Washington State and in 2008 she was awarded Avon’s “Hello Tomorrow Grant” for an innovative program for homeless girls. Jackson explains how she came to work with the homeless – “My first experience with the homeless was when I was 12 years old. Our church youth group served dinner once a month to the homeless men on skid row. I can remember being frightened of the noisy place with so many dirty strangers. On one visit my youth pastor asked if I would lead everyone in grace. I nervously looked around and then said the Lord’s Prayer. I can remember as if it were yesterday the deep voices of the homeless men, who one by one chimed in and said the prayer with us in unison. I

remember more vividly however, how they came up to us youth afterwards to shake our hands, hug us and thank us for coming down and breaking bread with them. It was a defining moment for me, and the reason I decided to become a social worker.” The Young Careerist/ Professional Program of BPW recognizes women and men between the ages of 21 and 40 who have been in their profession or business for at least a year.

Post Office to stop Saturday mail delivery Six days of package delivery, five days of mail delivery begins August 2013 The United States Postal Service announced plans to transition to a new delivery schedule during the week of Aug. 5, 2013 that includes package delivery Monday through Saturday, and mail delivery Monday through Friday. The Postal Service expects to generate cost savings of approximately $2 billion annually, once the plan is fully implemented. “The Postal Service is advancing an important new approach to delivery that reflects the strong growth of our package business and responds to the financial realities resulting from America’s changing mailing habits,” said Patrick R. Donahoe, Postmaster General and CEO. “We developed this approach by working with our customers to understand their delivery needs and by identifying creative ways to generate significant cost savings.” Over the past several years, the Postal Service has advocated shifting to a five-day delivery schedule for mail and packages. However, recent strong growth in package delivery (14 percent volume increase since 2010) and projections of continued strong package growth throughout the coming decade led to the revised approach to maintain package delivery six days per week.

“Our customers see strong value in the national delivery platform we provide and maintaining a sixday delivery schedule for packages is an important part of that platform,” said Donahoe. “As consumers increasingly use and rely on delivery services — especially due to the rise of e-commerce — we can play an increasingly vital role as a delivery provider of choice, and as a driver of growth opportunities for America’s businesses.” Once implemented during August of 2013, mail delivery to street addresses will occur Monday through Friday. Packages will continue to be delivered six days per week. Mail addressed to PO Boxes will continue to be delivered on Saturdays. Post Offices currently open on Saturdays will remain open on Saturdays. “The American public understands the financial challenges of the Postal Service and supports these steps as a responsible and reasonable approach to improving our financial situation,” said Donahoe. “The Postal Service has a responsibility to take the steps necessary to return to long-term financial stability and ensure the continued affordability of the U.S. Mail.” The operational plan for the new delivery schedule anticipates a combination of employee reassign-

ment and attrition and is expected to achieve cost savings of approximately $2 billion annually when fully implemented. The Postal Service is currently implementing major restructuring throughout its retail, delivery and mail processing operations. Since 2006, the Postal Service has reduced its annual cost base by approximately $15 billion, reduced the size of its career workforce by 193,000 or 28 percent, and has consolidated more than 200 mail processing locations. During these unprecedented initiatives, the Postal Service continued to deliver record high levels of service to its customers. While the change in the delivery schedule announced is one of the actions needed to restore the financial health of the Postal Service, legislative change is urgently needed to address matters outside the Postal Service’s control. The Postal Service continues to seek legislation to provide it with greater flexibility to control costs and generate new revenue and encourages the 113th Congress to make postal reform legislation an urgent priority. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

A winter escape to Maui and Hotel Wailea By Greg Aragon As we sailed across the Auau Channel, we waved goodbye to secluded Lanai and set our sights on her sister island Maui. Along the way we again spotted humpback whales and dolphins and the rugged outlines of Molokai, Kahoolawe, and the Big Island. When the Expeditions (www.go-lanai.com) ferry docked in Lahaina Harbor, we disembarked and walked beneath a forest of banyan trees to our rental car. We then drove down the southwest Maui Coast to Hotel Wailea, where we checked into a beautiful suite overlooking the ocean and hills of lush vegetation. Nestled on 15 acres, Hotel Wailea is an authentic tropical paradise, surrounded by palm and avocado trees, rolling hills, thick gardens, waterfalls and streams, and lots of Hawaiian charm. Because the property is a few blocks above the beach, it of-

fers an intimate, romantic atmosphere not found at larger, busier resorts. This is a place to enjoy the island and forget about life for awhile. The hotel also boasts a full service spa and fitness center, a sparkling pool, an award-winning restaurant, complimentary breakfast, and an efficient shuttle service to and from the beaches and shopping areas a couple minutes drive away. All 72 suites at Hotel Wailea feature 900 sq-ft, separate bedrooms and living areas, deep soaking tubs, kitchens, free wireless internet, TVs, plush bathrobes, and private lanais with chaise lounges and chairs. Ours overlooked the water, white sandy beaches and the island of Molokai a few miles offshore. When we weren’t lounging poolside at the hotel, we were exploring the rest of the island. One of my favorite spots was Iao Valley State Park, located in the center of Maui. This magical, 4,000-acre reserve is carpeted with thick, tropical vegetation and guarded by towering

mountain peaks. It is home to one of Maui’s most popular landmarks, the 1,200-ft Iao Needle, a giant jagged rock shooting above the Iao stream. A sacred, historical place in Hawaiian history, the Iao Valley is a great place for a nature hike, as there are well-maintained trails leading to the needle above and to an old village below. From the valley we drove to gorgeous Makena Beach. Also known as Big Beach, this beach is Maui’s largest and also one of its best, which to me means it’s one of the best in the world. With white sand stretching nearly a mile-long and 100 yards wide, this ocean-front playground offers great swimming, snorkeling, picnicking and sunbathing. After a day at the beach we drove back to Hotel Wailea for dinner at the property’s signature Capische? restaurant and bar. Serving creative Southern Italian cuisine, the restaurant is delicately woven into the hotel garden setting, so guests can dine in various romantic

outdoor nooks, with memorable views of the ocean and rolling grounds. Our meal began with mushroom truffle risotto; and a Kona Maine lobster, with garden vegetable, preserved lemon and herb crème. We followed scrumptious appetizers with Caesar and arugula salads and white wine. For the main course I devoured a tasty Capische

Cioppino, with Kona Maine lobster tail, Kauai shrimp, clams, local fish and house-made saffron orrecchiette. My friend went with a divine Porcini Crusted Ahi, with mushrooms, roasted root veggies, polenta and pumpkin seed vanilla vinaigrette. After dinner we relaxed on our suite’s private lanai and watched the sun fall into the ocean behind

Molokai, while sipping mai tais, breathing in the warm fragrance of plumeria, and feeding breadcrumbs to wild chickens.

Police warn residents of “psychic healer” fraud ring in Monterey Park Monterey Park Police are warning area residents to beware of individuals posing as “Psychic Healers” due to several victims reporting thefts of large amounts of money and jewelry. The suspects are targeting elderly female Chinese residents. Victims have been approached at bus stops and shopping areas throughout the city. On January 15, 2013, a victim reported that she was approached by three female suspects in the area of Atlantic Blvd. and Garvey Ave. in Monterey Park. The suspects told the victim that she had

bad luck, illness, and evil spirits and they knew a psychic healer who could help her. They advised her to go home and return with rice, jewelry, and money in a black plastic bag and they would pray, “bless” it, and return it to her. The “blessed” property would absolve her of her bad luck. The victim provided the suspects with her valuables. The suspects performed the ceremony and the property was returned to the victim. They advised her to not open the bag until a few days later or the prayer would not work. The vic-

tim complied and when she opened the bag she discovered it contained a bottle of water and newspaper. The individuals pictured below were recently detained by another police agency regarding the same type of fraud and theft. They are believed to be transient, staying in local motels or possibly residential motels. Residents are advised to be aware of this scam and to contact the Monterey Park Police Department at 626573-1311 if approached by anyone with a similar request.

NAMM - Are you experienced By Terry Miller

-Photo by Terry Miller

There is a great cartoon where Jimi Hendrix is on a job interview after his short but incredible career in the music business and the prospective employer says “ That’s Great! But are you experienced?” That’s kinda how I feel after every NAMM show in Anaheim. “I’m going to NAMM.” I proclaimed to my wife. Not Vietnam, but the world’s largest music industry product trade show in the world. Drums, guitars, violins, cellos, and everything in between - I try to go every year- to see how the latest in technology affects the industry .NAMM ( National Association of Music Merchants) is usually very loud and the aisles are alive with the sound of every kind of music imaginable. While there was a plethora of talent and tunes at NAMM, this year was a bit different, however. There were a few guys walking around Anaheim Convention Center, wearing black and carrying decibel level meters. The Decibel Detectives were one the case of anyone going up to and beyond “11”…excuse the homage to “This is Spinal Tap.” It seems that some of major complaints in years past to NAMM officials were from vendors who

couldn’t hear themselves over competing drums, cymbals and inevitable 13 minute guitar solo through a Marshall stack pushed to the limit, literally shaking the roof of the convention center. 2013, enter the decibel docs who, albeit ever so nicely, advised merchants when things were getting out of hand to turn down. No tickets were written, no one was carted off to NAMM Jail but nonetheless a more peaceful and gentler NAMM prevailed. It was an interesting aside to the show especially when there were a lot more earplugs handed out than in years past. That being said, the NAMM show brings together the most amazing talent and music manufacturers from all over the globe. One minute you’ll be talking with Carmine Appice and the next to Beach Boy founder Brian Wilson. The list of top entertainers and musicians is a mile long, but you can rest assured that if you get one of the coveted badges to get inside the NAMM show, you’ll be rubbing shoulders with some of the very best in the business. Why this show is so successful is, in part, due to proximity of Los Angeles where so many artists live and work. And , the

time of year. There are A-listers and punters by the baker’s dozen working the rooms and part of the fun is watching the procession of music lovers slithering by in their favored duds. Collecting mementoes such as autographs has become almost ancient history now as fans really want photos of themselves with the stars – cheek to cheek kind of poses- ( which most oblige willingly) so they might Facebook or Instagram the moment for all their thousands of ‘FRIENDS’. In fact it has become THE thing onFacebook to post pictures of yourself with celebrities...”Hanging out with my main man…so and so… LOL.” Interesting phenomenon compared to when , in one of my first NAMM shows, I met B.B.King. I didn’t ask for a picture, an autograph or anything…I was just thrilled that I got to shake his hand and hear him play his guitar, Lucille – live in a very intimate setting. The thrill is gone! Not really, actually I was mesmerized this year with how ‘old’ is becoming new again. Retro is here to stay. Moog ( remember the first synth) had a great booth and it was the talk of the town. Traditional drums by far outweighed the electronic kits and there was a noticeable increase in acoustic guitar makers this year. The mainstays like Martin and Gibson had perhaps some to the most beautiful I have ever seen or heard. During the much needed rest stops, I’d catch up on my reading with any one of the seemingly hundreds of magazines publishers want you to read. My choice Saturday was my old stand by, Modern Drummer. Can’t wait for next year’s NAMM and maybe even hit the one this summer in Nashville.

Waits and many more top artists. “It’s going to be a night to remember and to celebrate with delicious food, wine, specialty drinks and plenty of Mardi Gras spirit,” said partner André Vener. “Bring your family, friends or date—it’ll be a night of fun for all, and the party favors are provided!”

so eagerly waiting their turn to perform on the historic stage. From kindergarten to high school, the brilliant and capable musicians and dancers kept up with the face-paced set changes and subtle lighting. The gifted youngsters, many of whom had never performed publicly, seemed confident and more that capable in what was, at times, complex choreography. What language barriers may have existed Friday and Saturday seemed insignificant with the universal semantics of smiles, confidence and camaraderie. The first performers were a strong Wind band from Beijing Qiyi Primary school. They performed the now famous anthem “ We are the World.” The Palm Springs Choir later performed “ Jekyll and Hyde. The Pasadena Boys’ Choir performed Daar Kom Die Alabama and Amate Adea. Several of the more complicated dance sequences were performed bynHunan Changsha Yali High School and also by Beijing Yuying Middle School who performed some folk dances. One of the more amusing pieces was the Waltz of the Flowers performed by International Kid Theater. The youngest of th triple brought the house down with her 2 year old confidence and skills. The 4th Hollywood Angel Cup International Youth Music and Arts Festival was held last weekend and the two-day event, included dance, singing, instrumental music and folk arts, as well as the grand opening and closing ceremonies. Since July 2010, the festival has successfully held three sessions, which have attracted thousands of young musi-

cians and artists from different countries. They supplied so many audio-visual feasts for American audiences by exciting and friendly competition, such as Russian folk dance, European modern dance, Armenian dance and Beijing opera. The Festival is committed to gathering talented young people around the world to demonstrate their talents on this wonderful platform, and celebrating together through music and arts to establish friendship and culture understanding. This year’s festival included two full days of activities with Dance and Vocal Competitions on Feb.01; the instrument competition and closing ceremony on Feb.02. There were 26 groups participating in the Festival, including 14 groups from China (more than 400 young students), and 12 groups from local Americans (more than 400 young students), totally over 800 the largest number in the history of the event. The competition was divided into children’s groups and youth groups in two-day contests, to compete for the top three - dance, vocal and instrument. The festival organizing committee was honored to invite the prestigious professors and artists from American art institutes as judges, who evaluated every

program seriously and gave contestants professional advice and guidance. Ambassador Qiu Shaofang and Counselor Che Zhaohe of the Chinese Consulate in Los Angeles, Mayor Kevin Sawkins and Vice Mayor Mario De La Torre of San Gabriel, Walnut Mayor Mary Su Wang, Beverly Hills Tourism Secretary Julie Wagner, the Chinese community leaders and other guests attended the festival awards ceremony. Hollywood “Angel Cup” International Youth Music and Arts Festival, is organized by the American Youth Culture and Arts Association, the US-China Cultural Association, the Nightingale International Culture and Education Foundation, the US-China Cultural Exchange Association, the US-China Cultural and Education Foundation, as well as many other culture exchange based organizations. The festival has garnered the support of the Los Angeles County government, the China Overseas Exchange Association, China Song Ching Ling Foundation, and a number of American Culture and Arts Groups. The festival is held annually in the city of Angels, Los Angeles, to provide an international communication platform and competition stage to the young talented artists around the world.

Lunar festival Continued from page 1

ley’s largest and most popular regional events. The weekend celebration took place at Garfield and Garvey Avenues in downtown Monterey Park, spanning five blocks. Guests were treated to many New Year activities, including the Wishing Tree at Garvey and Lincoln Avenues, where visitors wrote down their wish on a card and tied it to a tree as a votive offering. Dozens of professional and amateur performers provided live entertainment on two separate stages at the event, entertaining thousands of onlookers who overflowed into the streets and packed themselves between vendors. Some vendors even got into the act themselves, such as members from the Sunrise House of Prayer in Alhambra, www.sunrisela.org, who performed a religious skit, showing spectators the way to salvation. The festival was cosponsored by the World Journal, one of the most influential Chinese-language news outlets in North America. Konan Tien, an advertising manager at the World Journal, coordinated the event with the City of Monterey Park. Tien said that this year’s popularity is due to the Journal’s advertising and outreach in Chinese communities from New

York to Los Angeles. “A lot of our readers in those areas will tell their friends in the Los Angeles area that this is the biggest Chinese New Year celebration there, and you should go there,” Tien said. He said more people than ever also had turned out this year due to their advertising campaign that included many local English and Spanish newspapers, as word traveled through the community from Canoga Park to Orange County. “We wanted to not only reach out to the Chinese community, but wanted to spread our outreach to more diversity - so anybody can come over and celebrate together and learn more about Chinese culture,” Tien said. “More and more people are becoming anxious to learn more about the Chinese culture, which is why I believe more people are turning out to the festival.” But according to Tien, his real achievement in helping to coordinate the festival was the role he played in procuring “happiness” for everyone else. “I feel the achievement of seeing a lot of people happy - happily coming to celebrate an event, and going home happy,” he said. Another marketing expert enjoying the Lunar New Year was Douglas Tchang, an account man-

ager with Verizon Wireless out of Irvine, Ca. Tchang and his sales team held 15-minute seminars for guests, talking about tablets, mobile data devices, phone apps and free texting. He said he had talked to hundreds of people that weekend, but was surprised with one particular visitor - as a Lunar New Year celebration tends to be filled with surprises at times. “It was really cool to see my father here. This is really the kind of an event that brings the family together,” said Tchang, explaining that his father had returned from China a few weeks ago, but this was the first time they had met since he had been back. The official date of the Lunar New Year 2013 is Sunday, Feb. 10. The 2013 Year of the Snake will run through Jan. 30, 2014. In China, it is also known as the Spring Festival, becoming an occasion for families to gather for the annual reunion dinner the evening preceding the Lunar New Year Day. According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Snake, one of the 12-year cycle of animals appearing as the sixth sign, characterizes steady progress and attention to detail. Focus and discipline are highly esteemed virtues for the person born under this sign to achieve what they set out to create.

Lee Baca discusses immigration reform policies at the White House Sheriff Baca calls for overhaul of the current system Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca will join senior law enforcement officials from the National Sheriffs Association (NSA), International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and former Los Angeles Police Chief Bill Bratton Wednesday at the White House, where they will discuss strides made in securing US borders, immigration issues affecting local police forces, and the resultant need for comprehensive reform. Sheriff Baca and other nationally respected law enforcement leaders will talk about the roles, responsibilities, concerns and impact of local police forces serving communities with immigrant populations. “It’s important for the public to trust their local law enforcement and to be able to call on them when needed,” said Sheriff Baca. “That relationship is compromised

when otherwise law-abiding people are afraid of deportation.” The sheriffs and chiefs like Sheriff Baca, IACP President Craig T. Steckler and former Chief Bratton will have the opportunity to share the successes and challenges in their local jurisdictions with officials like Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano, DHS Assistant Secretary for International Affairs Alan Bersin, Acting Associate Attorney General Tony West, and Director of White House Domestic Policy Council Cecilia Muñoz, and they will be briefed on current policy and programs. Last Monday, a bipartisan group of senators released a framework for broad immigration reform including a conditional path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, reforms to

the legal immigration system based upon the needs of the economy, creation of an employment verification system, and an improved process for admitting future workers. We need help in Washington so that we can focus on catching criminals, rather than sacrificing priorities to play the role of immigration agent,” said Sheriff Baca. “Immigration reform will strengthen security in communities across the country.” “America needs to come to grips with the truth that it needs legalized documented workers “ Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said. “This country also depends on undocumented workers in many of our vital industries. It is time to move forward with real reform when it comes to all of our immigration issues. And we need to do it sooner rather than later.”
