Glendale Water and Power warns of scams Glendale Water & Power (GWP) would like to provide a warning to our utility customers due to an increase in utility scams. Surrounding communities have reported people impersonating utility workers attempting to gain access to a home in order to burglarize it. In one instance two men posing as utility workers approached a couple at their front door. One impersonator spoke to the couple regarding installing new power lines in their backyard, and asking the couple to go to the backyard, while a second impersonator tried to burglarize their house. Glendale Water & Power customers have also reported receiving visits and phone calls from contractors offering fake GWP incentive programs in order to get customers to enroll with the promise of GWP incentives or discounts. In the past GWP customers have also notified the utility and the Glendale police about receiving phone calls from Please see page 4

‘Corporations are not people’ “For if they were, how could we deprive them the right to vote?” says Adam Schiff -Photo by Terry Miller

Rep. Adam Schiff (DBurbank) called on the Speaker to help avert the dangerous across-the-board cuts that would result from sequestration, scheduled to kick in on March 1st. On Sunday night, the White House released a report laying out the direct cuts that would affect Californians. Schiff believes that Congress must take swift action on a balanced plan to stop these automatic spending cuts that would threaten our economy as well as a range of vital services for children, seniors, small businesses, and our men and women in uniform. “We must do everything we can to reach a long-term deal to avert the sequester, to grow jobs and the economy, and to address our debt problems,” said Rep. Schiff. “If sequestration goes into effect later this week, it’s going to be a disaster for the country, resulting in the loss of many thousands jobs in Los Angeles and around the nation. We need to find a permanent fix to these fiscal issues, and it just shouldn’t be that hard if both parties would come to the table open to a balanced agreement that has a combination of responsible spending cuts, increased revenues, and job growth. “Our economy is poised to finally recover if the Congress would get out of the way. I urge the Speaker to permit a balanced plan to come to the floor. Finding common ground to avert the sequester is not rocket science, and it needs to get

done.” California would face a series of cuts to education, environmental protections, military readiness, public safety, public health and programs benefitting seniors. Education Funding: California will lose approximately $87.6 million in funding for primary and secondary education, putting around 1,210 teacher and aide jobs at risk, and 187,000 fewer students would be served and approximately 320 fewer schools would receive funding. Additionally, Head Start and Early Head Start services would be eliminated for approximately 8,200 children in California, reducing access to critical early education. Protections for Clean Air and Clean Water: California would lose about $12.4 million in environmental funding to ensure clean water and air quality, as well as prevent pollution from pesticides and hazardous waste. Military Readiness: In California, approximately 64,000 civilian Department of Defense employees would be furloughed, reducing gross pay by around $399.4 million in total. Public Health: California will lose approximately $2.6 million in funds to help upgrade its ability to respond to public health threats including infectious diseases, natural disasters, and biological, chemical, nuclear, and radiological events. In addition, California will lose about $12.4 million in grants to help prevent and treat substance

abuse, resulting in around 9,400 fewer admissions to substance abuse programs. And the California State Department of Health Services will lose about $2 million resulting in around 49,300 fewer HIV tests. Nutrition Assistance for Seniors: California would lose approximately $5.4 million in funds that provide meals for needy seniors across the state. Additionally, vital programs nationwide will see massive cuts that will also directly impact Californians: Public Safety: Under sequestration, U.S. Customs and Border Protection would also have to lay off more than 7,000 officers and agents, increasing wait times at our nation’s busiest airports. The Department of Justice would also be forced lay off approximately 1,000 federal agents and 1,300 Bureau of Prisons correctional officers. Health Care: More than $1.6 billion would be cut from medical research grants through the National Institutes for Health, meaning fewer and smaller research projects aimed at finding treatments and cures for diseases like cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Community health centers would serve 900,000 fewer patients as a result of cuts of $120 million, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would provide 540,000 fewer doses of vaccines against diseases like hepatitis, flu, meaVisit us at: sles, and whooping cough for ChickensWelcome.com children and adults.

Rep. Adam Schiff spoke on the House Floor in support of his constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s ill-considered opinion in Citizens United, and other Supreme Court precedent, which have made it impossible to regulate the billions in campaign spending unleashed over the last two decades. The amendment also overturns the Supreme Court decision Arizona Free Enterprise Club’s Freedom Club PAC v. Bennett, which struck down an Arizona law that allowed public financing of a candidate if their opponent exceeded certain spending limits. During the speech, Schiff stated: “As a legal decision, the Citizens United opinion was remarkable in many ways - in its willingness to overturn a century of jurisprudence, in its choice to issue as broad a ruling as possible rather than as

narrow as the case and Constitution required, and in its reliance on minority or concurring views in prior decisions rather than the prevailing opinions in those same cases. As Justice Stevens pointed out in a striking dissent, nothing had really changed since prior controlling case law except the composition of the Court itself. So much for stare decisis. “Since that decision, corporate expenditures have reached in the billions of dollars, and the ‘independence’ of those

expenditures – their theoretical separation from the office holders they are intended to influence – is a fiction no one buys anymore. The proliferation of super PACs and their outsized influence on House, Senate, and presidential politics is beyond dispute by all except those five Americans who happen to sit on the Court. “And corporations are not people. For if they were, as Justice Stevens points out, how could we deprive them of the right to vote?”

of the season. Tedford also honored longtime board members Marc Mittelman and Julie Ambrosi for their many years of service to the league, and Lisa Wong also received a service award salute and plaque. The 2012 City Champion minors Angels were recognized for winning AALL’s first District championship in nearly a decade and the AALL 8-9 All Star team finalists asked to take a bow for their great post season run last year. In the first game of what should be a great season, the majors Angels rallied from an early deficit and then held off the Braves, 11-7. Marcus McIntire pitched his best when the Braves were threatening to earn the win with relief help from

Ethan Jenkins. Jenkins had a key two-out, two-run single, one of his two hits on the day for the Angels. Easter, making his majors debut, had three hits in four trips including a booming triple, and scored three times, and McIntire helped his own cause with two solid hits and an RBI. For the Braves, Sean Tibay hit the first home run of the AALL season, a mammoth shot to left-center field that cleared the fence with about 30 feet to spare, and leadoff man Mike Gruppie, like Easter a majors newcomer, was the only Brave with two hits. He had a pair of doubles to go along with a walk in three plate appearances, while scoring twice and stealing two bases. In the minors season opener, Ace Belvoir RBI

single in the final inning gave the Diamondbacks a 3-2 victory over the Cardinals. The game was a pitcher’s duel between the Diamondbacks’ Kevin Lima and the Cardinals’ Nick Patton as the two right-handers matched each other nearly pitchfor-pitch. Nolan Anthony paced the Cardinals at the plate with three hits. In the AALL Opening Day finale, the majors Cubs rallied from a 4-0 deficit and edged the Red Sox, 6-5, on Nathan Wong’s single. Ryan Meeks of the Cubs hit what will likely be the first of many homers for the season to help start his team’s comeback. Tyler Quintero turned in a strong pitching effort for the Red Sox, striking out 11.

Senator Liu introduces bill to sell state-owned 710 freeway properties Sen. Carol Liu has authored legislation to help the California Department of Transportation sell stateowned houses no longer needed for construction of a proposed State Highway Route 710 extension in Los Angeles, Alhambra, South Pasadena, and Pasadena. Liu introduced SB 416 to streamlines the process for selling as surplus property, houses that were purchased more than 50 years ago for what was then planned to be a surface route. “We need to get Caltrans out of the rental housing business and sell off these properties;” said Liu, D-La Cañada Flintridge and Senate Transportation and Housing Committee member, “real estate management is not part of the department’s mission.” The North Route 710 project has been a controversial issue in Los Angeles County for decades. The 4.5-

mile, uncompleted segment transects neighborhoods and communities. Caltrans owns over 500 homes within the original surface route corridor. About 400 of these homes are occupied by tenants for whom Caltrans serves as landlord, but many houses remain vacant and in disrepair. In the last decade attention has shifted to the construction of a tunnel, rather than a surface route, to connect the 710 freeway between State Routes 10 and 210. A tunnel route would require less surface area and fewer properties to be destroyed. Caltrans could declare all other properties excess and sell them, thereby returning them to private ownership and the tax rolls. However, current law requires the state to pay for costly repairs prior to any sale. The law, known as the Roberti Bill, provides for

homes first to be offered for sale at an affordable price to eligible tenants and then to an affordable housing entity. Remaining properties are to be sold at fair market value. Under the law, Caltrans must make repairs to the property required by lenders or government assistance programs or provide a comparable replacement dwelling. SB 416 retains Caltrans’ authority to offer a replacement dwelling, revises the definition of “fair market value” to reflect the existing “as is” condition of the property, and deletes the requirement for costly repairs to be made prior to sale. SB 416 also gives first right of refusal for purchase of residential properties at fair market value to former tenants in good standing and for purchase at fair market value to tenants of non-residential properties before they are offered on the open market.

impersonators asking customers to pay their outstanding bills over the phone or face water or power shut-off. “Customers’ safety and security is a top priority for GWP. Customers should not hesitate to ask any City employee or contractor working for GWP for proper GWP identification,” stated Stephen Zurn, General Manger of GWP. If customers have any uncertainty about the individual, they should ask the individual to wait outside while they call GWP to verify identification. If you are contacted by phone, ask for a call back number for verification. “Our customers should never feel embarrassed or feel a sense of urgency or pressure to provide personal information, or be coerced into signing up for incentives. ” added Zurn. Customers can call GWP (818) 548-3300 for any type of verification. The utility will never call or visit customers to solicit enrollment in any type of incentive program,

especially solar incentives, as GWP’s solar program is currently closed due to limited funding. Glendale Water & Power Customer Notification Procedures: All GWP employees will always show their GWP identification, which includes the employee’s photo. At all times GWP employees will provide the GWP’s office number if someone wants to verify their identity. GWP provides advanced notice of the need to enter private property and employees in GWP marked vehicles arrive between 8:00am and 5:00 p.m. GWP employees never call customers and ask for payment information over the phone, payments can be made through our website and through our telephone IVR system, never with a live person. Only on rare occasions would GWP employees need to enter a resident’s home.

GWP employees never enter a home to check water quality Water quality visits are never unscheduled, and water is tested at the outdoor hose bib For incentive program information GWP customers should visit www.GlendaleWaterAndPower.com Contractors of GWP will make appointments with business customers prior to any visit GWP does not visit residential customers to solicit program enrollment If at any time customers are concerned about our procedures, they are encouraged to call our customer service department at (818) 548-3300. If you notice any suspicious activity near your residence or are contacted by someone collecting money or impersonating City personnel, please contact the Glendale Police Department at 818-548-4911 immediately. Always look for a GWP vehicle with prominent logos and ask for GWP identification.

Luxury, history and gourmet cuisine in Oceanside By Greg Aragon In honor of Oceanside turning 125 this year, my friend and I decided to revisit the charming seaside town for cool mid-week escape. Our getaway began at the Wyndham Oceanside Pier Resort, where we checked into a gorgeous fifth-floor suite overlooking the pool deck and the Pacific Ocean. The room was highlighted by a master bedroom with king bed, flat screen TV and huge bathroom with walk-in shower and jumbo Jacuzzi tub. The suite also boasted a large living room with giant flat screen TV, sofa and dining table; a full kitchen with stove, refrigerator and sink; and a balcony looking over the pool and famed Oceanside pier. Once acquainted with the room, we walked down Pacific Street to the Oceanside Harbor for a fish and chips lunch and then a tour of the harbor in our own private electric boat, which we rented through Oceanside

Boat Rentals. Stretching 18-ft, the vessel was a perfect way to see the harbor, which abounds with sport fishing, whale watching, boating and other water-oriented activities. While cruising the harbor, we pulled beside million-dollar yachts and little dinghies, and waved to fisherman on the shore and fellow boaters. It was a fabulous hour-long tour. Back at the hotel, I swam in the pool, which overlooks the ocean and pier and then worked-out in the fitness center and sat in the sauna. Afterwards, we walked to the bottom floor of the Wyndham Hotel and enjoyed a memorable dinner at 333 Pacific Restaurant. Serving up modern steak and seafood, 333 was bustling with locals when we arrived. While waiting for our table, we sampled vodka from an incredible selection of more than 100 varieties from around the world. Our meal began with a couple superb appetizers. First we shared a delightful Ceviche plate, with scallop, albacore, shrimp, calamari ceviche, serrano chilies, and fried wontons. We fol-

lowed this with Baja Crab Stack, with avocado, mango, cucumber, toasted tortilla strips, margarita salsa, and fried serrano chilies. We washed them down with Grey Goose vodka Bloody Mary’s, garnished with shrimp. For a main course, I kept with my seafood journey and devoured a big, tasty bowl of the restaurant’s signature Cioppino, with calamari, shrimp, salmon, jumbo lump crab, lobster, mussels & clams, roasted tomato sauce, and focaccia

toast. My friend had the unforgettable 333 Filet Trio of succulent steak, with peppercorn demi, oscar, bleu cheese crust. We paired the food with white and red wine. After dinner we walked across the street to historic Oceanside Pier, which at 1,942 ft-long, is one of the longest wooden construction recreational piers on the West Coast. While strolling along the wooden planks I thought about the city’s rich history. Founded in 1888,

Oceanside boasts a number of important historical and cultural attractions such as Mission San Luis Rey (The King of Missions), vintage 101 Café, 1920’s era Robert’s Cottages, Top Gun House, California Surf Museum and the Oceanside Museum of Art. The city is also known for its support and proximity to Camp Pendleton marine base, which is just north of town. Today, with 3.5 miles of sandy beach, a quaint New England-style harbor and a stellar year-round climate,

Oceanside is a highly sought after location for enjoying active pursuits including surfing, kayaking, boating, fishing, bike-riding, skydiving and more.

Assault and burglary suspect arrested 3 months after release from prison, Canyon Country On February 21, 2013 at 6:30 PM, deputies from Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to an assault call in the 18000 block of Saratoga Way, Canyon Country, at the “American Beauty” condominium complex. The initial investigation revealed that a female adult was assaulted when she was exiting her garage and entering a breezeway that lead to her condo unit. The suspect confronted and attacked the victim, forcing her back into the garage area. The victim was forced to the ground, but fought back and was able to call out for help. Startled, the suspect ran from the garage. A short time later, a call from the same area came into the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station stating that a male had forced his way into a residence, asking the residents to hide him because the police were look-

ing for him. The suspect was captured at this residence when deputies arrived. The suspect was identified as 26 year-old Canyon Country resident, Robert Pena, and was taken into custody by patrol deputies.

Immigration workers' rights Continued from page 1

all workers free from fear or retaliation. “Today’s NELP report marks an important step in providing for adequate workers’ protections to the 11 million undocumented workers in this nation, which make up 5.2 percent of the labor force in the U.S. This report will also provide the California Legislature with the foundation on issues we can address at the local level. I will continue to work closely with my colleagues to pass sound legislation that will continue to enhance and promote workers’ rights in our state. California must take on the challenge of leading the way as an advocate for the undocumented worker, and defend them from abusive employers. For too many years, employers have exploited current immigration laws, violated labor laws and retaliated against hard working individuals who speak up against the abuse. I am proud to stand with the California Labor Federation, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA), the California Immigrant Policy Center (CIPC), the National Immigrant Law Center (NILC), the California Rural Legal Assistance

(CRLA) and Warehouse Workers Untied as we move forward to promoting the proposed remedies and continue protecting workers. This report provides us an opportunity early on to address those concerns by looking for equitable solutions.” affirmed Assemblyman Roger Hernández. “All workers have a fundamental right to be treated with respect and dignity on the job, regardless of their immigration status” said California Labor Federation Executive Secretary-Treasurer Art Pulaski. “This report shows that far too often, unscrupulous employers are using threats and intimidation to exploit immigrant workers. It’s time to put sensible solutions in place at the federal and state levels to protect immigrant workers from workplace abuse.” “The report by National Employment Law Project highlights that our broken immigration system has forced immigrant workers in both the informal and formal job market to endure labor abuses by unscrupulous employers, who have unfair leverage over lawabiding employers. Key Immigration reform elements include labor protections for

all workers and a roadmap to direct and full citizenship” said Joseph Villela Director of Policy & Advocacy for CHIRLA. “The National Employment Law Project’s report highlights the ways in which employers unfairly use immigration status as a tool against worker efforts to assert their rights, despite existing laws. Our federal and state policies should reflect our country’s core values of fairness and respect for work. We need better solutions to provide greater protections for all workers, including immigrant workers, to promote shared prosperity and strengthen the U.S. economy” Stated Policy Manager Gabriela Villareal from CIPC. “In Southern California’s Inland Empire we have seen that warehouse operators who contract with major retailers like Walmart use immigration status as a weapon against workers who speak up about common schemes to cheat workers like wages that are less than minimum wage and unsafe working conditions,” said Guadalupe Palma, Director of Warehouse Workers United.

Leroy D. Baca, wins National Sheriffs’ Association 2013 Sheriff of the Year

-Photo by Terry Miller

The National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) has declared that Leroy D. Baca, Sheriff of Los Angeles County, California has been selected as the 2013 Ferris E. Lucas Award for Sheriff of the Year winner. The Ferris E. Lucas Award will be presented at

the Opening General Session on Sunday, June 23rd at NSA’s Annual Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina. Sheriff Baca was elected as the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in Los Angeles County in 1998. He commands the largest Sheriff’s Office in the United States with a budget of $2.5 billion. He leads nearly 18,000 sworn and professional staff who compromise the law enforcement providers for forty-two incorporated cities, 140 unincorporated communities, ten community colleges, and thousands of Metropolitan Transit Authority and Rapid Rail Transit District commuters. The Office of the Los Angeles County Sheriff manages the nation’s

largest local jail system housing nearly 20,000 inmates which has recently come under considerable scrutiny for allegations of abuse. Baca has promised to investigate and correct any wrongdoings on behalf of his deputies accused of abusing inmates. Sheriff Baca, a United States Marine Corps Reserve veteran, earned his Doctorate in Public Administration from the University of Southern California. He was elected to the NSA Board of Directors in 2005 and elected to the Executive Committee in 2011. He is the chair of the NSA Global Affairs Policing Committee and also serves on the Congressional Affairs and Homeland Security Committees.

Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth to make royal visit to Queen Mary in Long Beach - March 12 The Royal Rendezvous to feature whistle salutes and fireworks display The world famous former Cunard liner R.M.S. Queen Mary, once the undisputed Grand Dame of the North Atlantic and perhaps the most loved ocean liner of the 20th century, will be visited by the youngest Cunarder Queen Elizabeth on the evening of March 12, 2013 in Long Beach Harbor. Retired from the sea now 45 years, the hotel and special event venue has been visited by millions of tourists. Cunard Line has never forgotten their famous former flagship and over the years has sent their ships to pay tribute to their first Queen. In the early 1980’s Cunard Princess was with the Queen Mary, and more recently in 2006 their current flagship the magnificent Queen Mary 2 was there, as well as the lovely Queen Victoria in 2011. However, the upcoming Royal Rendezvous with the beautiful new Queen Elizabeth will be the most poignant of all. From 1947 to 1967 the glorious sisters Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth crisscrossed the North Atlantic on their appointed

schedules, many times sighting one another in mid ocean. This wonderful oceanic interlude was relished by passengers, captains, and crew alike for there was no finer sight than to witness the largest and most beautiful ships of the era in their natural element, splashing the sea aside as they passed. The last time the two sisters met was September 25, 1967 in the small hours of the morning, when the Queen Mary was Eastbound on her last trans-Atlantic voyage in the Cunard Service. In the cool, starlit, autumn darkness, Commodore Geoffrey Marr stood at attention on his flying bridge of the Westbound Queen Elizabeth; Captain Treasure Jones was in the same position on the Mary. As the two great Queens closed on one another, the lights were flashed on, scattering the indigo Atlantic night in Cunard red; porthole pearls were in regal array. Each captain doffed his hat as the mighty Tyfon whistles pierced the ether in a fantastic farewell salute. It is with a great sense of history that Cunard

Line will send their newest liner, the 90,000 ton namesake Queen Elizabeth, to rendezvous with the Queen Mary in Long Beach Harbor on March 12th, and for a brief moment in time the two most sanguine names in the history of mankind and the sea will be together again. Joining these maritime icons high above will be the famed Goodyear blimp, the Spirit of America. The presence of a Goodyear blimp overhead lends a special appeal at major sporting and red carpet events and will add to the historical significance of this Royal Rendezvous. Free Access to the Queen Mary will be offered from 4PM-9PM on March 12th, 2013 for this historic meeting. The Queen Elizabeth will sail into the Long Beach Harbor at 6:30PM and a ceremonious fireworks display will begin at 7:30PM.

Rep. Chu praises reauthorization of Violence Against Women Act Thursday, more than a year after the Violence Against Women Act expired at the end of 2011, the House of Representatives joined the Senate in passing a bipartisan reauthorization bill. Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27) released the following statement: “For nearly twenty years, Congress worked on a bipartisan basis to expand and improve the Violence Against Women Act. The abandon of that common purpose by Congressional Republicans last year may have been a political game to them, but for those facing violence in their homes, it was a matter of life and death. “Today, we finally passed

the bipartisan legislation that the Senate has repeatedly passed before us. We did so after rejecting the GOP alternative that would have left immigrants, LGBT individuals, and Native Americans living on reservations without equal protections. “The whole point of this law is to protect the vulnerable – not to cherry pick who matters. So I am thrilled to see Republicans finally end this year-long embarrassment of leaving victims to fend for themselves. It’s high time we safeguard the lives of each and every person – male or female, gay or straight, American or not – from the threats posed by predators in our society.”

First passed in 1994, the Violence Against Women Act provides protections for the victims of domestic violence such as automatic and mandatory restitution on those convicted, and allowing civil redress in cases prosecutors chose to leave unprosecuted. It was reauthorized and expanded on in 2000 and 2005, before expiring at the end of 2011. On February 12, 2013, the Senate passed bipartisan reauthorization legislation by a vote of 78 to 22. Having refused to vote on the same bipartisan Senate bill last year, the GOP-lead House agreed to vote on it today after their alternative proposal failed to pass.

Glendale fire department donates truck to academy The Glendale Fire Dept. is donating a fire truck to the Glendale Community College Verdugo Fire Academy with a presentation on Monday, Feb. 25 at 4 p.m. prior to the GCC Board of Trustees meeting. The truck will be on display in the San Rafael Plaza. The 1990 Seagrave 100foot tillered ladder truck is in addition to two Class A engines that the Glendale Fire Department previously donated to the Verdugo Fire

Academy. The key functions of a ladder truck are to: Allow access or egress of firefighters and casualties at height. Provide a high level water point for firefighting (elevated master stream). Provide a working platform from which tasks such as ventilation or overhaul can be executed. Carry a large selection of tools and equipment. The tillered ladder concept originated when taller buildings and narrow city streets became a

problem for fire departments. Larger ladders were needed to get to the upper stories of buildings, and the only way to move these large ladders was with a large vehicle. The presentation ceremony will include the GCC Board of Trustees and administrators, Fire Academy personnel and cadets, the Glendale Fire Department and City of Glendale officials.
