Pasadena police officer placed on administrative leave On February 7, 2013, following a court ruling by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Larry Fidler involving a 2007 Homicide, Pasadena Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez has placed Officer Kevin Okamoto on paid administrative leave and temporarily re-assigned Corporal William Broghamer from the Homicide/Assaults Unit, pending an internal investigation. Chief Sanchez told Beacon Media that “Judge Fidler granted a mistrial in the 2007 homicide case. In his overview he was critical of Officer Broghamer and Okamoto’s performance. Based on the outcome, I initiated some immediate actions, including a personnel investigation.” “The Pasadena Police Department has an obligation to swiftly and thoroughly investigate allegations of misconduct. The allegations that have been levied against these officers are serious and the Pasadena Police Department will conduct a thorough investigation,” said Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez.

Volume 18, No. 7

BY SUSAN MOTANDER In a special meeting, the Monrovia City Council approved a settlement with Samuelson & Fetter, L.L.C. (S&F), the developer that had sued the city for $106 million. The lawsuit was based on S&F’s claims that the city had violated the Design Development Agreement they had over the development of the project

known as Station Square. The parties entered into a stipulation for judgment to settle the lawsuit. A stipulation is an agreement between the parties by which the parties agree to what the judgment that concludes a lawsuit will be. The lawsuit claimed that the city sold land to the Gold Line for its Operations Yard and parking lot, land it had previously promised

to S&F. The settlement, which was approved by the successor agency’s Oversight Board on Wednesday afternoon, now needs to be approved by the state’s Department of Finance. In the stipulation for judgment, the City of Monrovia as the Successor Agency to its own Redevelopment Agency agrees to sell lot of property along Pomona and Magnolia

Avenues adjacent to the Gold Line Station site for $2,780,000. The city agrees to pay Samuelson Fetter $510,000 of which $100,00 will be retained by the city to be used to offset the cost of zoning and other fees in regard to Lot A. The city will also reimburse S&F for the environmental insurance premium costs not to exceed $100,000.

As is often the case in rapidly changing police actions such as that in Big Bear Tuesday, there is a tremendous amount of misinformation, and media speculation. Getting to the facts in the case has been difficult, at best. We do know, however, that a body was discovered in the burned out cabin after the shootout Tuesday and that some identification was located and believed to belong to Dorner . Los Angeles County, LAPD police officials and police agencies statewide listened intently to radio scanner traffic as the dramatic shootout unfolded at a Big Bear-area cabin on Tuesday afternoon about 1:30PM. SWAT teams attacked the cabin Tuesday, with hundreds of rounds fired in a “constant barrage of gunfire.” according to numerous news sources. A fire ensued consumPlease see page 14

Arcadia Police dept. confirmed Tuesday that they were asked for extra patrols by Holy Angels Parish school as a result of concerns for the safety of the parishioners and children. Holy Angels' pastor Rev. Michael Evans said via email this weekend that he is seeking sanctuary outside the area while the Los Angeles Police

Dept. searches for the cop killer Christopher Dorner who named his sister in the now infamous manifesto published on Facebook. Teresa Evans, a Los Angeles police sergeant was apparently named by fugitive Dorner in an 11,000 word manifesto. There is now a $1 Million reward for the capture of Dorner. "As a safety measure for our community I have asked to have an increased police presence for our campus," Evans said in his email. "While I am not under direct threat from this suspect, both LAPD and Arcadia PD have recommended that I be away from the parish," the

pastor said in the statement. The Rev. Blaise Brockman, the church's associate pastor, is leading Holy Angels in place of Evans for the time being. Arcadia police officers are now providing extra patrols and consulting with Holy Angels about how to handle the situation. Dorner's manifesto, which he posted online, names about 40 people he blames for corruption within the Los Angeles Police Department and ultimartely his firing from LAPD in 2009. Evans is the first person Dorner named in the manifesto is Evans, whom Dorner alleges kicked a suspect in the head three times during a 2007 arrest

Dorothy's Place Help

By Dorothy Denne Uh-oh. I’m getting grumpy. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about things I find damned annoying. Last week I wrote about hating unwanted phone calls from unknown whomevers. A few days ago I went to a meeting and the guy sitting behind me coughed and sneezed all during the meeting and, I’m sure, all over me. Now that I found really damned annoying AND I hated it. Since I assumed he

was not covering his face, I would have just moved but there weren’t any other seats. Consequently, today I’m coughing and sneezing and I feel like (bleep)! All that said, I admit I’m getting grumpy. I also admit that grumpy is not good so let’s share a chuckle over a joke that showed up on my e-mail: A woman received a call that her daughter was sick. She stopped by the pharmacy to get medication, got back to her car and found that she had locked her keys inside. She found an old rusty coat hanger left on the ground. She looked at it and said, “I know this should work but I don’t know how to use it.” She bowed her head and asked God to send her help.

Within 5 minutes a beat up old motorcycle pulled up, driven by a bearded man who was wearing an old biker skull rag. The man got off of his cycle and asked if he could help. She said, “Yes, my daughter is sick. I’ve locked my keys in my car. I must get home. Please, can you use this hanger to unlock my car?” He said, “Sure.” He walked over to the car and in less than a minute the car was open. She hugged the man and through tears said, “Thank you so much! You are a very nice man.” The man replied, “Lady I am NOT a nice man. I just got out of prison yesterday. I was in prison for car theft.” The woman hugged the man again sobbing, “O thank you God! You even sent me a professional.”

By Susan MOtander In the afternoon of January 31, the victims interrupted an attempted burglary of their home in the 100 block of Norumbega Drive. The victims arrived home to find a female Hispanic holding open the back gate from their yard to the alley behind their home. She was standing next to a vehicle parked in the alley. When one of the victims confronted the woman, she appeared nervous and got into the driver’s seat of the vehicle and drove away. Upon entered their yard, the victims found their safe on a dolly next to the gate by where the woman had been standing. When the victims entered their home, they found it had been burglarized. Monrovia police believe that the woman the victims saw was involved and that she may have had accomplices. The victims reported that earlier they had seen the vehicle by which the woman had been standing being driven through the neighborhood by a man. Also, the safe, that was found in the back yard, had been located on the second floor of the residence

and that it would have been difficult for a single person to bring it down alone and load it onto the dolly on which it was found. The woman is described as a female Hispanic, approximately 5’5” ”, 180 lbs., stocky build, medium complexion, long brown shiny hair past the shoulders, wearing unknown color dress pants, thin white blouse and a thin grey sweater, and spoke with a Spanish accent. The vehicle being

sought is an early 2000s, dark grey BMW, possibly 323I model, 2DR, with tint on all windows and a black and white paper rear plate that read “Discount.” The vehicle is described as not well cared for. No further details about the car are known. Anyone with information about this suspect or the vehicle is urged to call Monrovia Police Detective Bureau Lt. Zeke Cerecerez, (626) 256-8041.

Monrovia Police are searching for a burglary suspect

2/5/13 2:20 PM

The Senate Rules Committee, Chaired by Senate Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, appointed former Assemblymember Anthony Portantino to the California Film Commission. Portantino had represented the State Assembly on the Film Commission until terming out of office on December 1, 2012. Prior to his service in the State Assembly, Portantino worked in film and television for many years. “I’m thrilled to be back on the Film Commission and very grateful to Pro Tem Steinberg for this appointment. I came to California from New Jersey to pursue a career in entertainment and being in a position to serve on the Commission lets me continue that passion and association. During my last term in office, I believe I was the only former filmmaker in the legislature where it is imperative that California’s

core industry has someone with practical entertainment knowledge and experience,” commented Portantino. Portantino was a strong supporter of the recently extended film tax credit designed to stem the tide of runaway production. He worked closely with the DGA during universal health care discussions as it pertained to “loan out companies.” He also authored legislation that endeavored to stem the tide of gate crashing awards shows after the Screen Actors Guild had issues during the SAG awards. “Anthony has been a consistent champion of the film and television industry and in the effort to keep this vital industry right here in California,” said Film Commission Chair Keith Weaver. “His broad experience and deep commitment to Californians have served the commission and the industry very

well. We are so glad to have him back.” The California Film Commission is the implementation arm of the film tax incentive program. It also offers free on-line permitting for all state property including state parks and beaches, freeways, roads, and government buildings. From hospitals and prisons to back roads and mountain ranges, the California Film Commission helps filmmakers gain access to the perfect locations. Cinemascout is its online database featuring California locations available for filming. The Commission also host visitors at its on-site Location Resource Center for personalized assistance when searching for locations. California has a network of over 60 Regional Film Offices across the state to provide localized support, detailed location information and facilitate the permit process.

Contrary to reports, Pasadena City Manager not considering elimination of Rose Bowl Operating Company City Manager Michael Beck issued the following statement Sunday: “In a recent media report, it was suggested that the City Manager’s Office is considering the elimination of the Rose Bowl Operating Company (RBOC). Although our staff is reviewing the governance structure of the RBOC at the request of the RBOC Board and the City Council, the review is focused on ensuring we maximize our capabilities in the future, and we are not considering the elimination of the RBOC. Since the start of the Rose Bowl renovation project, the RBOC and the City Manager’s Office have provided essential

leadership for the concept, the approach, the process, the financing, and the construction of the project. As the City Manager, and as a member of the RBOC Board, I am proud to be personally involved in all aspects of the project. The Rose Bowl Operating Company has played a diligent and responsible role in the management of this complex and essential stadium renovation. The citizen volunteers who serve on the Board come from a broad spectrum across the community and we owe a debt of gratitude to these individuals for their commitment to be guardians of one of Pasadena’s greatest treasures.

Legacy Connections has already raised nearly $10 million in private funds for the Rose Bowl and it is committed to raising significantly more. The RBOC, City Council, Legacy Connections, Tournament of Roses, and UCLA should be proud of their efforts to ensure that the Rose Bowl will remain “America’s Stadium” for generations to come.”

redwhite+bluezz leaves old town on a high note The beat goes on with new ownership, location Following a successful seven year run at the corner of Raymond and Green, redwhite+bluezz, Old Pasadena’s premiere destination for live jazz, fine wine and cutting edge American cuisine, will close its doors for good at the end of day Sunday February 24, 2013. To celebrate redwhite+bluezz’ remarkable mix of live jazz, great food and epic wine, they’ve cooked up special events featuring all aspects of the redwhite+bluezz experience. The schedule Vener and his staff have come up with is Thursday, 2/14—Valentine’s Day: Intimate dining with a prix-fixe option; music by the Jack LeCompte Duo Friday, 2/15—Rock Out with Tim Kobza Trio Saturday, 2/16—R&B Gregory Lawrence Trio Sunday, 2/17—World Jazz Night with the Vahagn Turgtyan Duo Monday, 2/18—Pasadena’s own Jazz legacy Paul Lines and Friends Tuesday, 2/19—Louis Van Taylor Duo Wednesday, 2/20— Wine Down Wednesday:

half off all bottles of wine; the Brazilian sounds of the Robert Kyle Duo Thursday, 2/21—Brother Yusef’s Deep Fried Organic Fattback Blues Friday, 2/22—The Ryan Cross Experience Saturday, 2/23— Jacques Lesure Trio Sunday, 2/24—Brunch & All That Jazz with Brother Yusef “It’s bittersweet,” said owner André Vener as he contemplates the past and future of the institution he created. “redwhite+bluezz was a phenomenal dream that turned into a highlyregarded and successful reality. Traditions were born here; memories made. As everyone knows, redwhite+bluezz is not just an award-winning jazz club and restaurant, it’s an experience. An experience, I am pleased to announce, that will continue to live on once we close.” So committed to the concept, staff and patrons, Vener has finalized negotiations with a prestigious restaurant group that will follow in the successful footsteps of the original redwhite+bluezz. Vener is passing the

torch, blazing, to Art Silveri and Dave Morgan from Playhouse Restaurant Group and Phil Thyen, the new General Manager. And with that torch comes a bulletproof master plan of redwhite+bluezz gold standard for success including rights to the name, concept, secret recipes, musician roster and more. “I am honored to hand redwhite+bluezz over to such a remarkable group of gentleman. I look of forward to its reincarnation,” continued Vener of the new establishment that will also be located in Pasadena and employ many of the current staff. “The group is equally passionate about everything that makes redwhite+bluezz redwhite+bluezz. I trust they will continue to respect and enhance the redwhite+bluezz experience and culture. I will be found there often either at the bar, having dinner or a spectacular brunch, listening to live jazz and appreciating all that redwhite+bluezz has to offer with a fresh and welldeserved perspective.” Among its many distinctions, redwhite+bluezz

enjoys a record number of awards and a host Pasadena Weekly’s Best of Pasadena honors seven years in a row including Best Restaurant, Best Music Venue and Best Wine List. redwhite+bluezz also recently won two top honors during Pasadena’s Cheeseburger Week competition and boasts an enthusiastic and consistent four star reviews on Yelp. Vener, a partner in the ever-popular Dog Haus, will be dividing his time between building upon Dog Haus’ success and producing Cal Phil’s 2013 summer season. Vener worked alongside his father Maestro Victor Vener for a decade as CEO of Cal Phil prior to opening redwhite+bluezz and has remained an integral part of the team. Most importantly, now that his redwhite+bluezz “baby” is independent, Vener plans to spend as much time as possible with his new “baby girl,” 16 month old Ava Ann. redwhite+bluezz is located in the heart of Old Pasadena at 70 South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91105.

Revolutionary fast and easy new procedure to correct receding gums without cutting or stitching Dr. John Chao has announced a groundbreaking procedure based on a knifeless, stitch-free and relatively pain-free method for repairing receding gums, called the Pinhole Surgical Technique® (PST®). Through a small pinhole made by a needle, Dr. Chao uses the PST® instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue and slide it over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no cutting or stitching, patients can expect virtually no pain and fast healing with the average procedure lasting only twenty-two minutes. PST® is a dramatic improvement to the standard, more invasive and painful

graft method presently used to repair gum recession. This important discovery will enable patients to repair and normalize receding gums that can destroy bones leading to decay, and eventually to loss of teeth. PST® patients experience dramatic and immediate change to their gum line and improved smile, with minimal procedure discomfort, and painfree recovery. Dr. Chao, who maintains his dental practice in the City of Alhambra, California since 1983, was recently granted a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Concurrently, a 33‐ month study undertaken

by Dr. Chao has been published online by the International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry, a high-impact, peer-review journal that has long-established international acclaim. The Journal will also publish this study in print in its October, 2012, bimonthly issue. An article in the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA February 2003 134(2): 220-225) reported that over 50% of the population between the ages of 18-65 have gum recession to at least some minimal degree. Eighty-five percent (85%) of people over the age of 65 have some form of gum recession.

Each year, millions of Americans have their identity stolen. While there is no fool-proof way to avoid identity theft, there are steps you can take to minimize your chance of becoming a victim or the damage done should a theft occur. Detective Abejon of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will share ways to Deter identity thieves by safeguarding your information, Detect suspicious activity by routinely monitoring your financial accounts and billing statements, and De-

fend against ID theft as soon as you suspect a problem. This will help you avoid becoming the next victim of identity theft. Community Safety Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month as part of the Public Safety Department’s continued effort to promote personal and neighborhood safety.

Mid-year budget review projects Duarte to end fiscal year with higher than expected surplus Mid-year budget projections estimate that the City of Duarte will end fiscal year 2012-2013 with a surplus of $588,000 instead of a previously projected $62,100 amount. Assistant City Manager, Kristen Petersen noted the increase in dollars is “largely due to a one-time residual payment of $800,000 from Los Angeles County that represents the City’s small share of the $9.4 million that the former Redevelopment Agency was forced to turn over to the county.” Barring any unexpected expenses or takeaways, said Petersen, the $588,000 surplus will leave the year-end General Fund reserves at $13.4 million. The reserve total includes a $7.5 million transfer from the Redevelopment Agency made in February 2011 as a repayment of a City loan advance made to the Agency in prior years. In the event the transfer is deemed invalid by the state, the $7.5 million would be eliminated from the General Fund and surrendered to the county. Such a scenario would reduce the City’s reserves to $5.9 million, 48% of the General Fund expenditures. General Fund revenues are projected to be $12,849,000 at fiscal year-end,

an increase of $867,000, or 7.2 percent as compared to the adopted budget. General Fund expenditures are expected to be $12,262,000, an increase of $220,000 or 1.8 percent. In addition to the $800,000 residual payment from the county, the City received several grants. A $334,000 grant from California Gang Reduction, Intervention and Prevention (CalGRIP), of which $84,000 will be spent in the current fiscal year. Grant monies will be directed to Duarte youth programs, including the boxing program, Youthworks, and D.A.R.T., and to help pay for a special assignment deputy and a L. A. County probation officer. A $25,000 Public Safety Prevention and Intervention grant from the Los Angeles County Chief Administrator’s Office will assist in funding programs including the City’s recreational financial assistance program and youth programs. The Gold Line Authority awarded the City $100,000 in funds for the hiring of consultants, engineering and other services that will expedite or enhance work related to the design and development of the Duarte Gold Line station. The City has allocated $50,000 of the grant to be

used in the current fiscal year. Expenditure highlights include major City pool repairs and the AQMD mandated replacement of the pool heater and Fitness Center boiler that will cost more than $150,000 by the end of the fiscal year. The City budget has also benefited from expenditure savings. A Supreme Court decision ruling that the county was overcharging cities for administrative services related to the collection of property tax has forced the county to revise its calculation, resulting in a savings to the City of approximately $39,000. The City has reduced postage expenses by approximately $13,000 by consolidating the Parks and Recreation schedule with the Public Safety and Community Newsletter. Code enforcement legal services expenses are projected to be reduced by approximately $6,000 as a result of the City Attorney restructuring the City’s legal services contract. “Overall, it was a positive sign to finally have a mid-year report with an unprecedented surplus after navigating a very difficult economic path for local governments over the past several years, noted City Manager, Darrell George.”

Four La Salle lancers sign national letters of intent La Salle High School is beating the odds when it comes to college athletic scholarships. The Lancers signed four Division I scholarship NLI’s today. The four Division One student-athletes to sign this morning on National Signing Day, were Daniel De La Torre (UCLA), Stephanie Ferri (Fordham University), Cassidy Rey (University of Denver) and Alex Astorga (Jackson State University in

Mississippi). Daniel is the Division IV California State Cross County Champion and defending Division IV 1600 and 3200 CIF Champion. Cassidy Rey is a two-time, first team All Del Rey League soccer goalie, Stephanie Ferri is a first team Del Rey League catcher for the Lancers softball team, and Alex Astorga is a stand-out soccer player. La Salle had three

Division I signees in the 2011-2012 school year (Bowdien Derby, Colleen McWilliams, and Diamond RidleyPierce). In addition, Jordan Hill (2012) signed a NLI in November to play basketball at the University of Wisconsin in the fall of 2013. La Salle athletics is riding a new wave of momentum in its athletic program and the Lancers are looking to continue this wave for many years to come.

A dozen trees topped in Monrovia for no apparent reason or imminent danger What’s wrong with this picture? Everything! Take a close look then read below. Topping is perhaps the most harmful tree pruning practice known. Yet, despite more than two decades of literature and seminars explaining its harmful effects, topping remains a very common, unnecessary and very cruel practice by far too many “tree trimmers.” Here in Monrovia, two weeks ago, a local “tree trimming” company was hired by landlords of an industrial complex on the corner of Myrtle and Chestnut apparently at the request of the city. We contacted the city public works and apparently, they have no record of the request by the city. Very interesting, indeed. I was promised that they’d “look into the matter and get me some information.” As of this writing, I’ve received no word from the city. The sad aftermath is that more than a dozen Ash trees were indiscriminately cut of tree branches to stubs or lateral branches that are not large enough to assume the terminal role. Other names for this awful practice of topping include “heading,” “tipping,” “hat-racking,” and “rounding over.” Whoever is responsible for this tragedy should own

Aside from the obvious, it is wretched that anyone would do this to a living tree let alone a dozen beautiful, blooming trees. Why didn’t someone stop the assault? One person told me leaves and pollen were falling and making their cars a mess. Is that an excuse to destroy trees. An arborist we consulted said this was” absolutely the wrong way to trim a tree.” He added that the tree will “ never recover” from such ruthless incisions and wounds.

Q: What materials are dental implants made from? A: Dental implants are made from titanium or titanium alloys. The oxide layer on the implants provides a corrosion resistant highly biocompatible surface. This makes it suitable for medical/dental usage. Peter S.

Monrovia council holds goal setting workshop The Monrovia City Council met on Saturday, February 9 to establish goals for the city for the next five years. Each council member was asked to prioritize goals for the city. While the public was welcome to attend and to comment on the decisions of the council, ultimately, it was the council itself that set those goals. Over the last several months, the consulting firm of Hampian, Statler and Multari has worked with the city to reach out to the community to determine what goals the members of the community thought were important. The firm reported the results of that outreach to the council in a special meeting on January 29. At that meeting the consultants gave the council members a homework assignment: to make a list of the goals he or she felt was most important. The criteria set by Team HSM were that there be only a few clear and understandable goals listed. Team HSM, as the consultants refer to themselves, took the goals cited by the members of the council and divided them into fourteen “themes.” They presented the exact wording provided by the council members without identifying which council member made which recommendation. Team HSM also proposed revised wording to incorporate the all the ideas presented by the council members on each them. The council them discussed the wording and made revisions to some. Each council member was then asked to prioritize the goals with a point scale from 0-4 with 4 being the highest priority and 0 being “not a priority goal. Each council member was given only 28 points to allot (this number was decided upon based on there being 14 goals). See boxes on page 23 for exact wording of each goal and the notes of each of the four member of the council. While there seemed to be consensus on most of the goals, there were some anomalies. For example, Council Member Tom Adams gave three separate goals a 4 or top priority. The other members of the council each gave only one item a 4 or Top Priority. After the meeting, Adams explained why he gave long term fiscal responsibility, infrastructure & facility maintenance, and regional

By Susan Motander employee negotiations highest priority. “Each and every one of them pointed to fiscal stability and my grave concern is that until we achieve fiscal stability, the other things won’t matter.” Adams gave zero points to three areas: community participation, youth programs and senior services and the Monrovia Area Partnership. He explained “We only got 28 points, when they were used up there were zero left.” He elaborated saying “It isn’t that the things I gave zeros to aren’t important. It is that without fiscal stability, which is all important, the rest will fail.” He explained that in his opinion we have only two things of importance: “We have people and we have infrastructure. “We have shifted the bulk of our resources to people instead of infrastructure,” Adams said, and concluded by saying “the level of deferred maintenance in this city is unacceptable.” In contrast Mayor Mary Ann Lutz said that she had given “No Priority” votes to the Gold Line and to Hillside Preservation because she felt they were given priorities in other goals. “Our economic development statement included our concerns for the Gold Line and our goal of environmental responsibility covered concerns about the Hillside Wilderness Preserve.” Council Member Becky Shevlin gave only one “No Priority” vote. She and the mayor both gave a zero to Regional Employee Negotiations, a concept championed by Adams. Shevlin said “I don’t believe it fits with our other goals for the city. The exact wording of the goals established by the Monrovia City Council on February 9, 2013. TOP PRIORITIES Long Term Fiscal Respons. - Continue to demonstrate long term fiscal responsibility by balancing the budget through revenue generation, the wise use of available funds, building adequate reserves and leveraging expanded volunteer support; and ensuring that expenses, including compensation programs and support for nonCity programs are carefully considered and kept in line with revenues. Economic Development - Strengthen Monrovia’s economy and tax base through economic devel-

opment efforts that include proactively retaining and attracting businesses (especially focusing on Old Town, Gold Line and Huntington Drive The corridor), steamlining permit and plan check processes where possible and enhancing our customer service and business friendly reputation. Infrastructure & Facility Main. - Catch up to the extent feasible on the deferred maintenance of City facilities and infrastructure (including streets, sidewalks, parks, trees, sewer and water lines) and develop a program for longterm , on-going maintenance that included a system for establishing priorities among projects and maintenance services. Historic Preservation – Maintain our commitment to historical stewardship by preserving historic homes, structures, sites and districts with sensitivity to neighborhood context. Public Safety – Provide a high level of public safety services through adequate staffing high quality personnel, up to date technology and planning in both the fire and police departments to assure that resources are strategically invested in the highest priority areas. Environmental Stewardship - Maintain our commitment to environmental stewardship by improving our energy efficiency, water & air quality, parks and open space, and our urban-wildland interface. OTHER PRIORITIES AT THIS TIME Community Participation – Continue enhanced community building and citizen participation efforts through improved communication, new technology and community connecting events. Gold Line – Improve existing building, transportation and circulation elements around Gold Line and encourage new development that creates synergy between Gold Line station, Old Town and throughout the City. MAP – Maintain and expand the Monrovia Area Partnership in a sustainable way and use MAP to build new community contributors and leaders. Quality Professional Staff – Maintain an excellent staff through competitive compensation programs, educational and professional development opportunities, Please see page 23

Work begins on Fire Station 39, groundbreaking ceremony set March 2

Pasadena Showcase House of the Arts to award $30,000 to classical music students at their 28th Annual Instrumental Competition - Feb. 16 On Saturday, February 16, the Pasadena Showcase House of the Arts will award $30,000 in monetary prizes to aspiring young musicians at the 28th annual Pasadena Showcase House Instrumental Competition being held at Thayer Hall at the Colburn School in downtown, Los Angeles. Each year, talented musicians aged 16 to 24, compete for prizes in the categories of woodwinds, brass, and strings to further their music education. Since the program began in 1984, nearly $500,00 has been awarded. “With school cutbacks and music programs being eliminated, it is more important than ever to support these talented young students in their musical endeavors,” said PSHA President Kathryn Hofgaarden. “It’s an honor to be part of an organization that year after year, helps students realize their dreams.” Thirty-two students from Southern California will be competing for the Grand

Prize of $6,000. For each of the three categories, a first prize in the amount of $4,000 and a $2,500 second prize will be awarded. In addition, honorable mentions in the amounts of $500 will also be announced. The prizes are distributed the day of the competition following the finals. “This year, the University of Southern California; University of California, Los Angeles; California Institute of the Arts; California State University, Long Beach; Crescenta Valley and University High Schools; and The Colburn School will be represented,” said Chini JohnsonTaylor, Competition Chair. The judging panel is made-up of members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and the prize monies for the Instrumental Competition are provided from the proceeds of PSHA’s annual benefit event, the Pasadena Showcase House of Design, which takes place April

21 through May 19, 2013. Tickets cost between $35-$45 and can be ordered by mail, online at PasadenaShowcase. org or by calling 714-4423872. The success of Showcase has enabled PSHA to make cumulative donations of over $18 million to support outstanding music and arts programs throughout the community. In addition to Instrumental Competition, PSHA supports, Gifts & Grants that are awarded to non-profit organizations for their music initiatives as well as to the support of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association; Pasadena Showcase House Music MobileTM, an award-winning program introducing third-graders throughout the San Gabriel Valley to the instruments of the orchestra; and Pasadena Showcase House Youth Concert, a free concert performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra for fourth-grade students at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Preliminary work has begun on the seismic retrofit and rehabilitation of Pasadena Fire Station 39 in advance of the formal groundbreaking ceremony planned for 11:30 a.m., Saturday, March 2. The public is invited to join Mayor Bill Bogaard, Councilmember Steve Madison, Fire Chief Calvin E. Wells and other city officials for the ceremony. Fire Station 39, at 50 Avenue 64, was originally constructed in 1952 and, together with Station 37, is the oldest of the department’s eight fire stations. The brick exterior of the two-story, 4,400-square-foot building has historic significance and improvement work was specifically planned to retain the exterior while completing the extensive interior remodel and seismic upgrade. The $1.78 million construction project is managed by the Pasadena Department of Public Works.

Project highlights includes seismic and engineering improvements to help the building withstand a major earthquake; improving accessibility and meeting ADA standards; increasing the building’s energy efficiency; extensive remodeling of all interior living, kitchen and office spaces; new utility systems, fire sprinklers and alarm systems; a new patio deck and a new emergency generator room. The project is estimated to be completed in late 2013, weather permitting. “Our firefighters serve the public every day and this important seismic retrofit and remodel will provide our personnel with an environmentally friendly and safe building to operate from while on duty. The fire station will also meet essential facility standards and improve public access to the station,” Fire Chief Wells said. The City design team

worked with Pasadena Heritage, www.pasadenaheritage.org, to develop a sensible project that retains the building’s historic brick exterior using State historic preservation guidelines. The retrofit also will achieve compliance with state structural requirements for essential facilities, helping to ensure the station remains functional after a seismic event. The rehabilitation also meets the requirements for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification. Funding comes from the City’s Capital Improvement Project Fund. The project will be completed by local general contractor Mallcraft Inc. For more information, contact Assistant City Engineer Steve Wright at (626) 744-4695.

Candidates for Monrovia City Council speak out We asked the two candidates who filed for the two open city council seats on the Monrovia city council to tell us a little about themselves. They were asked to give us a brief profile of themselves including a bit about their background and families, the education and their experiences. We also asked them to explain why they were running for city council and what special abilities they would bring to the job. And lastly we wanted to know what they saw as the challenges facing the city and what they wished to do if elected. We will be following the candidacy of any formally registered and nominated write in candidates if they appear. Alexander Blackburn and Larry Spicer chose to answer our questions in different styles. Here are their responses:

Alexander Blackburn Fellow Monrovians, I am very pleased to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you. Though I have operated a business here for several years, and have been heavily involved in community service during my time in Monrovia, I have never before held public office. Consequently, there are some who are not yet familiar with

me, my positions on issues, or the assets I will bring to the city council. By way of background, I moved to Monrovia in 2009 and moved my law firm to Old Town in early 2010. I immediately became involved civically through the Monrovia Rotary Club, and am currently the club’s PresidentElect. Much of my civic effort has involved promoting the city’s youth through scholarships and leadership training. In addition to Rotary, I have supported many other organizations and activities, such as the YMCA, Boys and Girls Club of the Foothills, Foothill Unity Center, Make a Difference Day, Relay for Life and Foothill Oaks Academy. Prior to moving to Monrovia, I worked as a litigator for a law firm in downtown Los Angeles. In that capacity, I worked extensively on matters involving land use, eminent domain and breach of contract – areas of law directly pertinent to issues that now face the city. Prior to taking the job in Downtown, I attended law school at Washington University in St. Louis. As a law student, I excelled academically and won the American Bar Association’s Negotiation Competition twice at the school level, was the 2005 Midwest regional champion, and competed successfully at the national level. At graduation, the school presented me with its Order of Barristers award for excellence in “applied lawyering skills.” I obtained my undergraduate degree in economics from Stanford University in 2001. While at Stanford, I earned numerous academic honors, and was a member of the football, crew and Judo teams. I particularly enjoyed Judo, and amassed an undefeated record in several divisions. Throughout my

academic career, and early professional life, I had the wonderful opportunity to live and work in many areas across the country, including Chicago, Cambridge, St. Louis, Kansas City, and the Silicon Valley. I experienced each location’s strengths and weaknesses, and I hope to bring those experiences to bear as a city council member for the benefit of Monrovians. The question I field most frequently is “why are you running for city council?” The answer is simple: Monrovia faces serious fiscal challenges that threaten to undermine our city, and I believe I have the skill set necessary to address those challenges. While recent city councils have served Monrovia quite well, the reality is that the city is in a precarious financial situation because of the general economic downturn coupled with the state’s ill-advised and short-sited dissolution of redevelopment agencies. The city has a diminished reserve balance and, while the city is currently able to meet its short-term cash needs, it is vulnerable to unexpected significant expenses. A weakened cash position also means that the city has little money to dedicate to business development, which is the foundation for the city’s future. Monrovia is essentially in self-preservation mode and I want to work with the other capable members of its council to get us beyond that. If elected, I intend to diligently seek out well-capitalized private partners for the city, explore federal and state sources of capital, and look for creative ways that the city can facilitate the innovative potential of its residents. Of course, all future business development must respect the sense of small town community that we love.

Everyday is an open house:

In addition to economic rehabilitation, I am also passionate about promoting education. If elected, I will collaborate with school officials to positively reinforce academic achievement. Tomorrow’s developer of the next penicillin is today’s humble student diligently studying while his peers indulge their shortsighted desire for immediate gratification. We need to recognize more passionately the sacrifice and dedication of these future leaders – those who will shape commerce, healthcare and national policy for future generations. As a council member, I hope to use the platform of my office to work towards that end. Of course, there are many other issues facing Monrovia – issues too numerable to address here. Over the next couple of months, I hope to have the opportunity to meet with as many of you as possible so that we may discuss those issues. Residents should of course feel free to contact me through my campaign website voteblackburn. com. In short, Monrovia, I ask for your vote, so that I may zealously represent your interests. -A. Blackburn

Gary R.White, DVM

I am a Monrovia native, was raised here and attended public schools in this city. During my senior year in high school, I took classes at Citrus College. After graduation from Monrovia High [MHS] in 1973, I spent 21years in the U.S Army, served in Korea and Germany as a Logistics, Operations & Nuclear Biological Chemical Specialist and acquired leadership, accounting, procurement and logistics management skills. Recently, I earned an Associate Arts degree from Excelsior College in Buffalo, NY. Examples set by my parents, while I was a young child, still inspire me to work hard and serve others. Opportunities this community has afforded me in the past, causes me to volunteer now and want to continue giving back in the future. Family? Children – where are they in school? Delphine and I have been married for 21 years and are proud parents of three amazing children, all educated in Monrovia public schools. Our oldest, MHS Class of 2010, is a college junior who plans to attend law school. Our son, a MHS freshman, is a member of the Math and Science Academy, and just ended an outstanding season as quarterback of the Freshman football team. Our youngest is a 6th Grade Honors scholar at Clifton Middle School. She is a 4.0 student and was recently selected “Student of the Month.” Our children’s academic achievements demonstrate the value we place on education and the confidence our family has in Monrovia’s public schools, its teachers and administrators. What have you done in Monrovia, civic groups, boards, commissions other volunteer activities? My current and past volunteer efforts include: Interim City Councilmember (2012- 2013) Monrovia Planning Commissioner (2010-2012) Trustee Second Baptist Church, Monrovia Watch Dog Dad for Bradoaks Elementary Peace on Patrol Parent (POP) Clifton Middle School and Monrovia High School Red Cross Volunteer Certified MAP (Monrovia Area Partnership) Leader Member Community Mediation Team (CMT) and Friday Night Live Coordinator Board Member Monrovia’s Make a Difference Day Board Member Duarte Hawks Youth Sports Why are you running

for City Council? I want to continue the work we have started so that Monrovia progresses economically and remains fiscally sound while providing a safe and nurturing environment for all of its residents. What special talents or abilities would you bring to the Council? Administrative or Leadership Experience: My military experience has taught me to protect others, and to make tough yet fair and equitable decisions based on facts after weighing the pros and cons. My procurement and accounting skills will help us make good use of city resources. I am an effective problem solver and good team member. For example, as MAP leader, I worked with a group after shootings in 2008 ravaged their neighborhood, walked Monrovia’s streets, calmed citizens’ fears, answered questions, squelched rumors, and helped find solutions that stopped the violence. This resulted in Monrovia receiving statewide recognition. I am not afraid to tackle tough social problems that adversely impact our community. Corporate or Government. Any management experience. I served as Vice Chair of Monrovia’s Planning Commission; was an Acting Army 1St Sgt. responsible for 120 soldiers during field training; was a big rig driver’s trainer for a 3,000 truck fleet in Tulsa, OK (eight years); and have managed numerous volunteer projects. What do you see as the largest challenges facing the city? Maintaining/upgrading our infrastructure, finding funds to balance our budget without Redevelopment dollars, and providing/expanding the programs and service levels we currently enjoy will be a tremendous challenge. What do you wish to accomplish if elected? I will work with the entire City Council and staff to find funding for upgrading Julian Fisher and other parks that need repair; see the Gold Line to Ontario Airport and Maintenance Campus completed; develop a community park in the southern section of the city to service our residents in that area; develop the Station Square area; hold quarterly meeting with residents to address their concerns/needs and solicit input; continue the partnership with our School District. My vision is for Monrovia to continue to be an All-America City.

Nadya Lanyi celebrates 107 years

Continued from page 1

day… New York . Hot Dogs ( authentic NY style) along with Soft Pretzels, helped Nadya and he guests get in the New York State of mind. As she walked over to her cake, you’d be hard pressed to think this woman was 85 let alone 107. During the Russian Civil War, Cossack regions became centers for the Anti-Bolshevik White movement, a portion of whom would form the White emigration. The Don and Kuban Cossacks even formed short-lived independent states in their respective territories. With the victory of the Red Army, the Cossack lands were subjected to famine, and suffered extensive repressions. During the Second World War, Cossacks fought for both the Soviet Union and for Nazi Germany. Dealing with such struggles made Nadya all the more determined and strong. Her work ethic which began at 8 lasted some incredible 92 years. Nadya Lanyi decided it was time to stop working once she reached a century. After years of raising a

family and working all her life, this sprightly 107 year old originally from Lithuania, wondered what all the fuss was about while we were talking last week. “What’s so special about me?” Lanyi said. Well, perhaps, some of the amazing stories you tell. One such story we’d like to share with our readers: At 85 years young, Nadya was mugged - they got away with her purse. She started running after them yellin “Stop- Thief, please someone call the police”…Now, remember, this is an 85 year old woman. This is no lazy woman: She worked for US Bronze also loved hiking all her life so her physical strength is well maintained. Eventually after a long chase, New York’s finest tracked down the slimy culprits and had them under arrest. An officer tracked down Nadya so she could ID one of the perpetrators. Once positive ID was established, one of NY’s boys in blue said “Would you like to hit him?” the officer was referring to the mugger who stole her purse. Responding in the affirmative,

Nadya took her right hand and slapped the offender right across his kisser with all her might! She and the officers had a good laugh about that! We all had a good laugh hearing that story. Talk about New York justice! Nadya is new to the area ( she’s been here about 14 months) after living the past 70 years in the same rent controlled apt in Manhattan where she raised her family. Vista Cove is a far cry from the apt, on 101st Street in New York City across from the Hudson River. That apartment apparently rents for considerably more that the $500 Nadya paid. What’s her secret to longevity: Simple, Hard work, hiking as well as good food and exercise. Although she admits to smoking a little earlier in life, she says she stopped and that was another reason she outlived two of her three sons she claims. Nadya stressed that steaming vegetables for a “very brief time” was also key to her health. This combined with fresh salmon, apples and other fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Nadya started working in Maripol, Ukraine when she was only 8 years old where she lived in an orphanage. Mariupol is an important industrial center and seaport. Two of its steel mills - Ilyich Iron and Steel Works and Azovstal are among the largest in the country and make up a significant part of Ukraine's total exports. It was here that Nadya worked so many

years. She really wanted to be a librarian but found typing jobs instead in many companies in the Ukraine. While Nadya misses New York, she enjoys her time sitting outside in the courtyard of Vista Cove, reflecting on her long life. Before we left, we had a chance to see some of Nadya’s sculptures and collection of photographs

(Oh yes, and a letter from President Obama) Her son, Ron, who visits her almost every day, is a professor of English at PCC stopped by at the conclusion of our first meeting last week. Nadya admits she missed New York but enjoys her time at Vista Cove except she says “they are always feeding me….I have a bit of a tummy now.”

IRS intensifies national crackdown on identity theft Part of effort to protect taxpayers, prevent refund fraud the federal 2012 fiscal year on Oct. 1, 2011. “As tax season begins this year, we want to be clear that there is a heavy price to pay for perpetrators of refund fraud and identity theft,” said IRS Acting Commissioner Steven T. Miller. “We have aggressively stepped up our efforts to pursue and prevent refund fraud and identity theft, and we will continue to intensely focus on this area. This is part of a much wider effort underway for the 2013 tax season to stop fraud.” The national effort with the Justice Department and other federal, state and local agencies is part of a larger, comprehensive identity theft strategy the IRS has embarked on that is focused on preventing, detecting and resolving identity theft cases as soon as possible. The identity theft effort – which intensified in January as the 2013 filing season opened – involved 734 enforcement actions related to identity theft and refund fraud. The effort led to ac-

tions taking place throughout the country involving 389 individuals. The effort included 109 arrests, 189 indictments, informations and complaints, as well as 47 search warrants. The identity theft push over the last several weeks reflects a wider effort underway at the IRS. Among the highlights: The number of IRS criminal investigations into identity theft issues more than tripled in fiscal year 2012. The IRS started 276 investigations in fiscal year 2011, a number that jumped to 898 in fiscal year 2012. So far in fiscal year 2013, there have been more than 560 criminal identity theft investigations opened. Total enforcement actions continue to rapidly increase against identity thieves. This category covers actions ranging from indictments and arrests to search warrants. In fiscal year 2012, enforcement actions totaled 2,400 against Visit us at: After just 1,310 suspects. ChickensWelcome.com four months in fiscal 2013, ALHAMBRA DENTAL 100 Southactions First Street enforcement toAlhambra, CA 91801

taled 1,703 against 907 suspects. Sentencings of convicted identity thieves continue to increase. There were 80 sentencings in fiscal year 2011, which increased to 223 in fiscal year 2012. Jail time is increasing for identity thieves. The average sentence in fiscal year 2012 was four years or 48 months – a four-month increase from the average in fiscal year 2011. So far

this fiscal year, sentences have ranged from 4 to 300 months. If a taxpayer receives a notice from the IRS indicating identity theft, they should follow the instructions in that notice. A taxpayer who believes they are at risk of identity theft due to lost or stolen personal information should contact the IRS immediately so the agency can take action to secure their tax account.

The taxpayer should contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit at 800-908-4490. The taxpayer will be asked to complete the IRS Identity Theft Affidavit, Form 14039, and follow the instructions on the back of the form based on their situation. Taxpayers looking for additional information can consult the special identity protection page on IRS. gov.

Continuing a year-long enforcement push against refund fraud and identity theft, the Internal Revenue Service today announced the results of a massive national sweep in recent weeks targeting identity theft suspects in 32 states and Puerto Rico, which involved 215 cities and surrounding areas. The coast-to-coast effort against 389 identity theft suspects led to 734 enforcement actions in January, including indictments, information, complaints and arrests. The effort comes on top of a growing identity theft effort that led to 2,400 other enforcement actions against identity thieves during fiscal year 2012. The January crackdown, a joint effort with the Department of Justice and local U.S. Attorneys offices, unfolded as the IRS opened the 2013 tax season. IRS Criminal Investigation expanded its efforts during January, pushing the total number of identity theft investigations to more than 1,460 since the start of

ing the cabin. Police officers ostensibly started the fire after the teargas was apparently ineffective in driving Doner out of the cabin. Although no official word has come, all indicators seem to show that the Doner manhunt is over. Of the 50 or so families assigned protective details because of Dorner’s alleged manifesto, only about a dozen were still under watch Wednesday according to the Associated Press. Investigators Wednesday were in the process of

identifying human remains found in the charred cabin where fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner was believed to have been holed up. An official told the Associated Press that a wallet and personal items, including a California driver’s license with Dorner’s name, were found with a body in the basement of that charred cabin. If the body is identified as Dorner’s, the standoff would end a weeklong manhunt for the ex-LAPD officer and Navy reservist suspected

in numerous shootings following his dismissal from the LAPD years ago. The investigation ordered by LAPD Chief Charlie Beck into the handling of Dorner’s disciplinary case — an online manifesto attributed to Dorner grumbled he had been mistreated by the LAPD and vowed retribution — will presumably continue despite the developments . Dorner’s rampage across California took the life of two police officers and 2 civilians.

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 fiveday 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 six-day 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 reassignment 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.

Temple City State of the City address set for Feb. 19 Mayor Vincent Yu is slated to update residents on the City’s accomplishments and upcoming plans during the annual State of the City address, Feb. 19, 6:30 - 7:30 p.m., in the Council Chambers (5938 Kauffman Ave.). Topics to be covered in Yu’s presentation will range broadly, from updates on the City’s Rosemead Boulevard Enhancement Project, Las Tunas Drive redesign

plan and new public arts program; to discussions on economic development initiatives, the City’s new emphasis on citizen engagement and communications. “From communitybuilding and infrastructure renewal, to strategic planning and responsible budgeting, all of our recent projects and ongoing efforts have been dedicated to building a sustainable community that will

last well into the future,” said Yu. “It’s also laid the foundation for what’s in store.” Following the State of the City will be the regularly scheduled Council meeting. Both events will air live on Public Access Channel 3, also streaming online at www.templecity.kgem.tv. Those who miss the original broadcast can catch it playing on Channel 3 during the week of Feb. 24.

The director of the production, Hector Rodri-

guez said: “I am excited and humbled to be part of this important play that is still relevant today in examining the images of Latinos in Hollywood and exposing how some things have changed and others have stayed the same.” Casa 0101 Theater Artistic Director, Josefina López said: “‘I Don’t Have to Show You No Stinking Badges’ was the play that opened my eyes to the incredible injustice of stereotyping the Latino community and its impact on how we perceive reality. Right after I saw it I decided to devote my life to being a writer so I could tell the truth about all the lies told about Latinos and Latinas. I was so inspired by that play and I am saddened to see Latino stereotypes still persist in the U.S. especially on television and film.” The play is set in the Monterey Park area of Greater Los Angeles in 1985 examines cultural stereotypes and prejudices, when Sonny Villa, a bright teenaged Chicano Harvard Pre-Law student, unexpectedly returns home to his showbiz parents in Monterey Park with an older Asian-American woman he met on the road to make an important announcement. The running time of the play is 120 minutes.” Performances are being given on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and on Sundays at 5:00 p.m. thru March 10, 2013.

The United States government mandated the use of the terms “Hispanic” or “Latino” to categorize Americans who trace their roots to Spanishspeaking countries, which has been met with some opposition. The terms have been met with opposition and have been challenged by individuals, groups and communities in academia, and social political circles. Casa 0101 Theater’s production of Luis Valdez’s play, “I Don’t Need To Show You No Stinking Badges” both explore issues of the Latino voice and identity, during the Chicano movement in East Los Angeles.

3 Los Angeles-Area residents indicted in large-scale phony credit card scheme

Counterfeit credit cards originated from from China Three Los Angeles-area residents have been indicted by a federal grand jury following a probe by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the U.S. Secret Service that allegedly revealed the defendants orchestrated a farreaching scheme to import and produce counterfeit debit and credit cards. The defendants - Jose Rolando Renderos, 38, of Montebello; his son, Jose Ulloa, 18, of San Bernardino; and Milagro del Carmen Alvarez Hernandez, 27, of Montebello - are charged in a nine-count indictment handed down Tuesday with a variety of violations, including access device fraud; possession of counterfeit access devices; and trafficking in counterfeit goods. All three defendants are currently in federal custody. They are expected to be arraigned Feb. 25. According to the case indictment, defendants Renderos and Ulloa would obtain blank counterfeit credit cards from China. The phony cards bore the names and logos of

such well-known financial institutions as American Express, Capitol One, U.S. Bank and Wells Fargo. The indictment alleges the father and son then embossed and activated the counterfeit cards using actual credit card numbers illegally obtained from point of sale devices. “Credit card fraud scams like this result in major losses for the affected financial institutions and it’s ultimately consumers who pay the price,” said Claude Arnold, special agent in charge for HSI Los Angeles. “HSI will continue to work closely with its federal law enforcement partners to target criminal schemes that undermine the integrity of our financial system.” The defendants allegedly kept unembossed card stock in a storage unit in Monterey Park. When federal agents executed a search warrant at the location Feb. 6, they recovered a cache of more than 80,000 cards, along with an embossing machine and multiple credit card skimmers. So far, investigators have seized more than 90,000 counterfeit credit cards in con-

nection with the case. Given the minimum credit limit of $500 per card, authorities conservatively estimate the value of the phony access devices at $45 million. “Cooperation and partnerships have allowed us to focus our resources and respond quickly to uncover and prevent these types of crimes, whether they originate within or outside our borders,” said U.S. Secret Service, Los Angeles Field Office Special Agent in Charge Joseph F. Beaty Jr. The probe into the credit card scheme is still ongoing, but investigators believe the defendants may have been using the counterfeit cards to purchase high-end merchandise for re-sale. According to the indictment, Alvarez used one of the counterfeit cards in December to purchase more than $1,600 worth of merchandise at a children’s boutique in Los Angeles. The probe is being spearheaded by HSI with substantial assistance provided by the Los Angeles Field Office and Riverside Residence Office of the U.S. Secret Service.

The officer located a subject in a white shirt who matched the description at a park in the 600 block of Shamrock. He contacted the second subject and while speaking with him, he observed a car with the windows open and keys in the ignition. The officer then left the location.

Believing the subjects were connected with the car, he and another officer watched the car from nearby. Within a short period of time, the two male subjects the officer had contacted and a third male subject ran to the car and got in.

Sierra Madre PD

Monday February 4 At noon, a 25 year old male (no further description) walked onto a property under construction in the 100 block of Rancho Road and took an air compressor.

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 10-0061585.

If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.
