BY TERRY MILLER The ‘Foxy 6’ and their defense team held a press conference and rally after their court hearing in Pasadena on Monday, April 22, to update the public on the status of the case and call for all charges against them to be dropped. The Foxy 6 are individuals who were “attacked and

Since November 2012, there have been 21 incidents of arson/ attempted arsons in the City of South Pasadena and 4 in the City of Pasadena. The massive fire last weekend was stopped in its tracks thanks in part to very swift air attacks with choppers at first and then fixed winged aircraft.

BY TERRY MILLER A quick aerial assault on the Monrovia Fire Saturday morning helped keep the fire from getting out of control. Lessons learned from the Altadena Fire a few years ago motivated swift action in the form of choppers and fixed wing aircraft to battle a blaze in the hills above Monrovia due to a spark from a gardening tool. The fire in the hillsides of northern Monrovia that quickly grew to 175 acres Saturday and prompted mandatory evacuations of about 200 homes is now fully contained according to authorities from the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The fire, which ignited shortly after 11 a.m. along the 300 block of Madison Ave., was 50 percent contained by nightfall on Sunday, Monrovia Fire Department and city officials said. As the fire continued to grow Saturday afternoon, mandatory evacuations were ordered along the fires eastern flank in an area above Foothill Boulevard in the vicinity of Myrtle Avenue. The blaze

Rusnak expansion plans back in Arcadia's spotlight BY TERRY MILLER

Monrovia, but few actually used the facility. For those with pets, the Pasadena Human Society (626) 7927151 and Wonder Ranch Dog Ranch in Monrovia (626) 205-2501 were offering to board dogs and cats. Wonder Ranch received several animals for care during the fire including a couple of chickens, dogs and a bunny rabbit There were mandatory evacuations in the following neighborhoods:

Arcadia City officials have apparently picked up where they left off in negotiations with Rusnak-Arcadia Mercedes-Benz concerning their long awaited expansion plans. Victoria Rusnak, president and chief executive officer for the Pasadena based Rusnak Group spoke with Beacon Media on Tuesday and said she was “thrilled and is looking forward to the expansion.” While the next step involves city council approval, it seems likely that all cards are in Rusnak’s favor. What this could mean to the city of Arcadia and its residents is new tax dollars and a significant visual improvement to Santa Anita Drive just north of Huntington Drive

was working its way east through heavy brush that has not burned in more than 55 years. But by nightfall, firefighters appeared to be getting the upper hand. The majority of evacuations -- for all but four streets -were lifted at 9 p.m. 200 homes were initially evacuated. Mandatory evacuations orders were still in place Sunday, however emergency response crews lifted the ban later in the day. The concern for Satur-

day night was downwind draft, which is typical for foothill areas” said Monrovia Fire Chief Chris Donovan. “I am comfortable with the situation and the lack of wind.” The Pasadena Firefighter injured earlier in the day was able to be treated on scene and is doing fine. The Madison brush fire has now reached 170 acres and is contained. The Red Cross had set up a shelter for those evacuated at the Community Center, 119 W Palm Avenue,

Dorothy's Place

About our pledge to the flag By Dorothy Denne When reciting the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag at public meetings, I sometimes cause the people close around me to flub a bit. I do not pause before 'under God' because, to my knowledge, there is no comma in the text. It reads, "....for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. I explained that fact after a recitation of the Pledge at a recent meeting. Also in attendance was longtime friend Gary Kovacic, Arcadia city council member. He jokingly commented, "I agree with her but leave it to Dorothy, even if millions of people say it one way, she'll still say it her way." Well yeah, when I believe I'm right. Another of the participants had previously raised the question of how

the pledge started. Having taught the history of it more than once in my teaching career, I was all ready to blip off an answer for her, only to realize I had forgotten much of my information. I had to come home and dig into my cabinet of "retired" files, and also take a modern gander at Wikipedia. I rediscovered that the history of the Pledge of Allegiance is a fascinating case study in the making of a tradition. It is too long to put into "Dorothy's Place", but in case your memory is like mine or you just never knew, let me give you a time line with the four different versions from beginning to present. The First Pledge: I give my hand and heart to my country, one nation, one language, one flag. -- author unknown, said at public ceremonies in the 1800s. 1892: I pledge allegiance to my Flag and to the Repub-

lic for which it stands, one Nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. -- Francis Bellamy 1923: I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. -- National Flag Conferences of 1923-24 1954: I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. -- U.S. Congress with President Eisenhower The story does not exactly end here. There have been, and continue to be, suggestions and arguments for further revision. The search for a definitive oath of loyalty to our land will probably continue as long as our nation exists. I shan't throw my file away.

Letters to the Editor Send your letters to tmiller@beaconmedianews.com Dear Editor, We are 11th graders at Arcadia High School. We believe sustainability is important because it conserves energy and preserves our resources to ensure availability for generations to come. Sustainable practices also do wonders for our economy and can help mitigate problems caused by climate change. We know that LAUSD passed the Resolution “Green LAUSD” in 2007, setting a goal to “become the most sustainable and environmentally-friendly large school district in the country.” LAUSD, the sec-

ond largest school district in the nation, has a strong history of being a leader in environmental sustainability. By creating and implementing a comprehensive and binding Climate Action Plan for the school district, we can help Los Angeles achieve its goal of becoming a beacon for environmentally friendly cities across the nation. In order to achieve this goal, however, LAUSD needs all the support it can get. Students from across Los Angeles will be gathering together at CicLAvia to deliver the following message to City Hall: “On behalf of

Los Angeles youth, we demand official support and accountability for a comprehensive and binding Climate Action Plan for LAUSD by 2015.” We encourage anyone who is interested in this cause to join us-- we will be gathering at Pershing Square at 12pm on April 21st. Help us make Los Angeles a cleaner, safer place to live. Sincerely, Valerie Chang Aarushi Walia Arcadia High School 180 Campus Dr. Arcadia, CA 91007

Dear Editor: In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, I would like to thank Emperor Elementary school’s wonderful teachers and support staff for all their hard work and dedication. Our son, Lucas de Paula, has had Mrs. Johnson (kindergarten) and Mrs. Jara (first grade) who have had a wonderful impact on his ability to learn and grow. All teachers are stellar at what they do in my opinion. Being a teacher is certainly not an easy job.

Teachers are one of the most important adults in a child's life. They not only teach the children valuable educational skills, but also help them to development social skills and positive attitudes about the world around them. I have seen my Lucas blossoms from a little boy to a responsible first grader. Thanks to Mrs Jara’s strong , and firm yet very caring and loving teaching style. What a wonderful balance! I want her to

know how MUCH I do appreciate all she has done this year her. My family is forever grateful to the tireless teachers and staff for of Emperor. They work so hard throughout the year to make this school a success for the students and community. Thank you all for making such a wonderfully memorable year! – Carla de Oliveira Mother of first grader Lucas de Paula from Emperor Elementary School.

To the editor Did you know most animals taken to a shelter once had a home? Did you know that Monrovia’s contract with the Inland Valley Humane Society ends in June? This is important because Monrovia has a chance to have a contract with San Gabriel Valley. You may think “What is the difference?” The difference is San Gabriel is 5 miles away and Inland Valley is

20 miles. The difference is Inland Valley has the highest kill rate in the state. San Gabriel not so much. Did you know if you are away and your pet goes to the shelter you have just 5 days to get them at Inland Valley? Please make a commitment to your pets and keep them for the rest of their lives. If they have medical issues and you cannot pay there is help. If they have a

behavior issue there are answers. If the cat is feral, you can go to Fixnation. This is free. Please spay or neuter your pet. Please call 626 303 6501 if you would like to sign a petition for Monrovia to have a contract with San Gabriel or if you would like to have people sign petitions yourself. You can also call Monrovia City Hall 626 932 5550and speak to your councilperson.

Dear Editor: Thank you to all agencies from Santa Barbara to San Bernardino ( with the fire assistance) -- and the often overlooked County Corrections inmates who did the dirty work of cleaning up and babysitting hot

spots. Most important that we don't think about is the wildlife that were too small to run or in nests that burned in place. The lucky got out but lost their homes, not to return. And are displaced to other places which are

already owned and will be defended. This is a time of awareness, and give them the same hand you would your neighbor. Laws or no laws. A time for compassion beyond ourselves. Nancy Zach

Dear Editor: Tom Gammill’s choice for his “Doozies” cartoon as an Easter message or inspiration was equivalent to laying an egg. A boy in the family was concerned about the Easter decorations for his home. He settles for T.V. ‘rabbit ears’ as his way of hon-

oring Easter. What was your message Mr. Gammill? Christ’s message to the world was that he loved every single person on this Earth. You are one of us. Was your cartoon your way of saying thank you? There are billions of Christians in this world who

may be persecuted in some countries. Have compassion for your fellow man. Respect if you want to be respected. May I suggest that religion should not be treated with disrespect, even if the cartoonist is an atheist? Peace, Rose Sarkisian

Opinion Life is Beautiful at 72 By Harry Sneider Recently Arcadia’s professional fitness trainer celebrated his 72nd birthday. Being a God centered individual Harry came up with some productive things for you to put into your life, your daily routine, to make life a joyous journey. Always remember there is a spiritual power to help you in your life. This power will lead you to happiness, prosperity, and health. Harry suggests that you start your day with good nutrition. Follow that with some type of activity that will help you to maintain a strong and healthy heart. Some of the suggestions would be walking, cycling, swimming, circuit training with weights, and the now very popular Zumba dancing. We are world recognized in the field of rebound exercise. Go to our website www.DrFit.net for more details. Harry has spent most of his life as a professional trainer and has worked with some of the world’s greatest athletes as well as movie stars and everyday people. He has shared the secrets of longevity with you throughout the years in the Beacon Media publications about the positive lifestyle. Life is meant for you to live with exercise, nutrition, positive literature, great family time, sharing your life with others, setting goals that are positive, and thinking good thoughts throughout the day. YOU CAN DO IT! Don’t let people stop you from developing your true potential. Harry’s wife, Sarah, is his partner in the fitness business.

couraging is very important for a strong marriage, family life, and helping the clients to stay in shape. Some of our clients have been married 60 years. They give God the credit for the spiritual strength, the love, that keeps them together. As we have passed the Holy Day season, Christ is mentioned as the answer to healthy marriages and healthy lifestyles. It’s up to you to make the decision to keep yourself healthy. DO IT NOW! Harry came through some very tumultuous times as a child living in Latvia during World War II. Many were killed; many lost their homeland, their security as human beings and wandered throughout Europe looking for a home. We, the Sneider family, felt that God answered our prayers and we found a wonderful home in America. Seventy-two years of life is a wonderful blessing. We pray that we can be more useful in the days ahead serving you with fitness training, motivation, encouragement, and support. We have worked with young athletes

Free public forum on charter schools - May 2 The League of Women Voters Pasadena Area is presenting a free public forum May 2 on the controversial topic of charter schools. It will be from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Women’s City Club, 160 N. Oakland Ave., Pasadena. Titled “What We Can Learn from Charter Schools,” the forum will address issues surrounding the charter school movement, which began 20 years ago and is a growing sector of public education. California alone has about 1,000 charter schools serving 360,000 children. Pasadena has six with approximately 1,400 K-12 students. Critics claim charters siphon funds from regular public schools because they are publicly funded but operate independently of local school districts. On

the other hand, advocates contend that, freed from local restrictions, charter schools can experiment and innovate to develop successful education models for all public schools. The forum will address these issues from different perspectives and answer commonly asked questions. One is whether charter schools have met the goal of improving student performance and led to better educational practices for all children in public school. Another is whether gains for charters are losses for traditional public schools. Do charters provide better educational opportunities with comparable amounts of money? What about the question of equity? Erick Premack, founder and director of the Charter Schools Development Cen-

ter in Sacramento, will lead off the program with a short history of the charter school movement. A panel discussion follows. Panelists include Lauren O’Neill, the head of Odyssey Charter School in Pasadena; David Tokofsky, a former school board member of the Los Angeles Unified School District, which houses more charter schools than any other in California; and Judy Higelin, a Los Angeles County Office of Education supervisor of charter schools. Premack will also be a part of the panel. A lively question and answer period will follow. Lunch is available for $20, including tax, tip and free parking. The program is free. For information and lunch reservations, call 626798-0965.

Local author tells us “how loss and vulnerability generate passion and success” Part I, “Longing to Be The Breck Girl,” provides the context for Part II. It is the genesis for how Simmons evolved from being mentored to being a mentor. The two themes that permeate the entire work are 1) how loss and vulnerability generate passion and success, and 2) how her passions and the exceptional mentoring she received from her educators enabled her to navigate the treacherous waters of her youth yet live a productive life as child, adolescent, and adult. Simmons grew up in San Bruno, California, a small town the San Francisco Bay Area, during the forties and fifties. For years she lived in the shadows of an older brother and sister, both of whom were popular, attractive, and gifted artists. By contrast, Simmons was physically flawed with ADHD and congenital nystagmus, a condition that severely limited her vision. She had enough energy for twelve people and streaked through life as a lightening bolt, unlike her more poised, elegant siblings. A victim of teenage acne, she used to stare longingly at the Breck Shampoo ads wishing that she, too, had beautiful hair and clear skin. In her mind, her sister was The Breck Girl who never suffered the awkward stages many adolescents endure. Part I chronicles her struggles with self image and the aftermath of her sister’s drowning while they were on a double date to Montara Beach, south of San Francisco. The brother of her date drowned as well. The reader will learn how she dealt with the emotional trauma of her sister’s death and the grief of her parents that so overwhelmed them she unwittingly became the “left-over child” coping as best as she could without benefit of counseling outside the home or nurturing from within. Furthermore, her mother was diagnosed with bipolar disorder during a time in which little was known about the disease. Because treatments were ineffective, she became increasingly hostile and dangerous even though she desperately wanted to be normal. Despite Simmons’ dysfunctional home life, she loved being a teenager because she was engaged in passions that brought her

By Linda Jones Simmons joy. Also, she was blessed with wonderful friends. The worse things became at home, the more deeply she immersed herself in her three passions: music, athletics, and academics. By the time she graduated from high school, she had become an accomplished pianist, had lettered in all sports, and had performed well academically. Simmons’ college professors were as nurturing as her high school teachers. The book reveals her relationships with four among them and how she flourished under their guidance. Between her BA and MA programs, she had the serendipitous opportunity to live in Japan for six months (Chapter 12, “Land of the Rising Sun”). The temporary reprieve from frenetic college life afforded her the luxury of exploring a foreign culture and language that left her changed forever. By the time she returned to the states and finished her formal education at San José State University and U.C. Berkeley, she was ready to teach. It was her turn to mentor and she couldn’t wait to get started. Part II, “My Turn to Mentor” Part II, “My Turn to Mentor,” depicts her teaching style with nonfiction narrative that combines commentary, anecdotes, and students’ writings collected over a thirty-six year period. The bringing together of these elements and showing the classroom as a microcosm of society is what makes this work unique. Through commentary, citations, anecdotes, and Simmons’ own poetry, the reader will be shocked, entertained, moved to tears and laughter, and above all, will emerge with a new appreciation for how teachers and teenagers cope with their daily lives in an academic setting. Another asset of this work is that it not only presents problems and solutions, but also, it dispels many misconceptions that lay people have about public school education by using Simmons’ own career with anecdotes as examples. Problems addressed include: How do teachers and students survive inner-city gang violence on campus? How can educators support and nurture those children who come from abusive or neglectful homes?

How do young people deal with their lot in life as products of dysfunctional families? How do they survive being shifted from foster home to foster home? What are some causes for teenage depression, and should all depressed or hyperactive children be medicated? What has to be done by administrators and teachers when all else fails with willfully disobedient students whose parents or guardians are in denial? Simmons’ memoir provides answers to these and many more questions. Not all problems are solvable within the context of the classroom. However, with humor, knowledge, wisdom, love, and a holistic approach to teaching, many issues can be successfully put to rest. What kept Simmons coming back year after year was the unpredictable nature of adolescent behavior. Just when she thought she had them figured out, they took her on hairpin turns in multitudinous directions. Part II of This Was Meant to Be, then, is a reflective endeavor that admits the reader into a world of pain and pleasure played out in classroom settings and concert stages. The voices of the young people who enriched the author’s life for over three and a half decades will be heard if the readers listen carefully and indulge themselves in the hunt for their magic. With the demise of the American family and the increasing lack of quality time spent between parent and child, the timing for This Was Meant to Be could not be more appropriate. Those who work with our nation’s young people must continue to speak out on their behalf. The mantra, “No Child Left Behind,” may soon become, “Most Children Left Behind,” if society does not become more proactive in caring for the young.

Lifeline for Pets Cat of the Week: "SPADE" Last week we published an article dealing with the difficulty of finding loving homes for senior cats. Yet, seniors have a lot of life and love left in them. All they want is comfort, security, and love (don't we all?). If that article touched your heart, please consider SPADE. Spade, with sleek, silky fur, has lived in the same home since he was a kitten. He was lovingly cared for and well-socialized by his elderly owner, who now must relocate out of the country. It would ease her mind to know that her SPADEY is in a loving,

forever home. Call Shazi at 626676-9505 or Kathy at 626797-1753 for an adoption application or more information on this cat or any other cat on our website.

Fundraising is underway @home for an important campaign to inspire action to solve homelessness in our communities. With less than one month left, now is the time you can help make a difference! The goal of the campaign, which was inspired by Pasadena-based and formerly homeless activist Mark Horvath, is to use film, social media, and a smartphone game to amplify his tireless work of turning apathy into action, making the homeless visible and inspiring people to help solve homelessness in their own backyards. To make a tax-deductible donation or for more information, please visit www.indiegogo.com/ projects/at-home-campaign. A portion of the funds raised by this Kickstarter campaign will help complete a Kindling Group’s @ Home – The Documentary. Currently in post-production, the riveting documentary follows Horvath as he pioneers the use of social media and web video for change. With extensive reach and a worldwide following,

Horvath, who began his journey to humanize homelessness more than a decade ago with only a backpack, socks and a video camera, now has a social media following through his website www.invisiblepeople.tv, Facebook and Twitter (@ hardlynormal) that numbers over one hundred thousand. On any given night, nearly 633,782 people in the United States experience homelessness — over 60,000 of them veterans. And the average age of a homeless person in the United States is only nine years old. To date, Horvath’s Invisible People has traveled to over a hundred cities in six different countries empowering our homeless friends to have a voice, while sharing the stories of people who are giving their all to end homelessness. When the filmmakers first met Horvath, they never believed that ending homelessness was achievable — but he convinced them. Now you can not only believe, but help turn this vision into a reality.

Gabrielino High presents “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” May 3-5 The Gabrielino High School drama department will be putting on the play “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” on May 3, 4 and 5 at the school’s auditorium. There will be two shows on May 3, at 3:30 and 7 p.m., and one show on the second two days, both at 7 p.m. The show is being put together by Jan Gluskin, who is the drama director at the school and created the program when she came to the district from Temple City 17 years ago. She said she came from a program that had a $60,000 budget to one that had a $3,000 budget. That took some adjustment, she said, but it didn’t stop her as the department now puts on three to four productions a year. “Our mission is to bring theater to the people,” Gluskin said. “We don’t charge a lot for our tickets, so everybody finds it accessible.” She said coming to San Gabriel made her work in theater on a more grass-roots level. “It was a lot more cre-

By Shel segal ative,” said Gluskin, adding her students have put on such plays, like “Little Shop of Horrors” and “Oklahoma.” “We build our own sets and put together our own costumes. When we first started all we had was a cafeteria. We had to rent a generator and rent lights. After each rehearsal we’d have to set up for breakfast (for the students) the next day. But we did amazing stuff. The quality of the shows were great.” Originally an actress, Gleskin said she eventually got into teaching, which has been a blessing. “I love my job,” she said. “I have the best job in the world. If I retired I would retire to have my own theater and I have that now. It’s been a dream working here. The people are great.” Gleskin also said the performances give people a chance to see a professional production without having to go to New York or London. “The numbers who have see a play are still very low,” she said. In addition, Gleskin said

her students sometimes go out and do a controversial piece, which serves as education for all. “In February we do our anti-violence plays,” she said. “We do ‘Bang, Bang, You’re Dead.’ It’s about a kid who went to school and killed five students. It was a very brilliant play.” Gleskin added she tries to give a job to any student in the school who wants to participate. She also said the department tries to do at least one musical a year. “We make sure everybody has at least two lines and they have a role, characters they have to develop,” she said. “I don’t believe in having people just stand in the back.” But the main thing, she said, is that everyone enjoys the production. “It’s not just for the people to come to the show and watch,” Gleskin said. “It’s for people who are on stage to learn. They learn what it’s like to be in a play. They’ll have an appreciation. We don’t do high school shows. We do productions.”

Correction: Admission prices for “God’s Man in Texas” now showing at the Sierra Madre Playhouse were in

error in last week’s review. Correct ticket prices are $25 general, $22 for seniors (65+) and students

RDA dismantling, the arrangement was off, indefinitely. There was even anxiety, albeit brief, that the admired dealership would move from Arcadia altogether. The commercial properties Rusnak has tentatively agreed to purchase are bounded by Santa Clara Street to the north, Morlan Place to the south and Santa Anita Avenue to the east. Mayor Bob Harbicht told Beacon Media that state finance looks at the deal(s) and the city actually only gets 10% of the revenues generated from the sale. The rest of the monies are divided up with other city agencies with the school district getting the lion’s share.

Rusnak expansion where several empty buildings now stand. Victoria Rusnak told Beacon Media that this would be part of the new showroom with high visibility. Arcadia is the first city to have its property management plan approved by the state Department of Finance according to Mayor Bob Harbicht. “ It is a two-step process essentially, submitting the general plan and then the disposition of that plan,” said Harbicht. In 2011, the city's Redevelopment Agency acquired the final piece of a two-acre site it intended to sell to owner Paul Rusnak as part of a development deal that could facilitate the dealership’s expansion. As a result of state

With Rusnak being the largest generator of sales tax revenue in the city of Arcadia, Mayor Harbicht says he’s happy the 8-year project is finally coming to fruition. “ We’re hoping to consummate the sale in the next two months,” Harbicht said. The Mayor added that there will be a world class facility on Santa Anita which will continue to grow and expand not only Rusnak’s sales but grow Arcadia’s sales tax revenue concurrently. Final review by the state and approval by the successor agency's oversight board will still be needed but Rusnak and city officials are confident this is going in the right direction.

Holden’s bill to boost California agriculture passes second committee on unanimous vote The Assembly Agriculture Committee today heard testimony on Assemblymember Chris Holden’s legislation to ensure that California fruit, nuts, livestock and vegetables are given priority when it comes to state purchasing. Under Holden’s AB 199 Choose California Act, state agencies would be required to give California agriculture producers priority when purchasing food products if the price is within 5% of the lowest outof-state competitor. School districts would have to purchase California grown products as

long as they aren’t more expensive than out-of-state products. “AB 199 uses the state’s purchasing power to bolster California’s Agri-business and that means more jobs and more revenue and that’s good for California’s bottom line,” said Assemblymember Holden. “This bill is a win-win for everyone. The public institutions get a locally-grown product, we’re helping create opportunities for our farmers and a new appreciation for local food helps stimulate the economy.” “California Citrus Mutual

is excited to support this legislation as it puts before our young people and population the wonderful bounty we produce in California. To have this focus is a win for agriculture and a win for our state.” Joel Nelsen, President, California Citrus Mutual The Agriculture Committee voted unanimously (7 to 0) in favor of AB 199. Earlier in the session the measure was approved by the Assembly Accountability and Administrative Review Committee. It now moves to Assembly Appropriations for fiscal consideration.

hope.” District Superintendent Steven Yoshihara said the district is in a better financial position than it has been in the past few years. “I think it’s certainly a better feeling than giving reductions,” Yoshihara said. “It’s more positive.” Yoshihara also said under the newest budget proposal by Gov. Jerry Brown, the district will receive more funding be-

cause it is in a lower socioeconomic category. This should help the teachers come contract negotiations, he added. “What you’ll notice is a greater variation in proposals between bargaining units and districts because of the way this formula will allocate funding to schools,” Yoshihara said. “Some schools will receive more money than others based on their socioeconomic status. The early indicators are that

we’ll be better off than under the current funding mechanism.” He added that it will greater a discrepancy between local districts in the way they receive money and how much. “That will create a lot of differences in money,” he said. “Some districts will be able to give more salary increases. Some will not. We’ll certainly see that unfold as the fiscal year progresses.”

Rep. Schiff: senate failure to pass background checks amendment is ‘appalling defeat for common sense and gun safety’ Wednesday, after the Senate failed to pass a bipartisan agreement on background checks reached by Senators Joe Manchin (DWV) and Pat Toomey (RPA) by a vote of 54-46, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), a former federal prosecutor and outspoken advocate for gun safety legislation, issued the following statement: “What happened this afternoon in the Senate is an appalling defeat for common

sense and gun safety. The victims of Newtown, of Aurora and other gun violence tragedies deserve a vote on a comprehensive gun safety package – including universal background checks, a ban on assault weapons and extended ammunition magazines and the expanded access to mental health treatment. More than half the Senate, along with 90 percent of the American people, support a compromise to expand back-

ground checks to unregulated gun shows and websites that sell millions of weapons, but a minority who feared a negative score from the NRA blocked the bill’s progress. “While it may have failed today, Senate leaders must not give up the fight for universal background checks and other vital gun safety measures – gun violence victims and their families deserve a better vote and result than this.”

San Gabriel company’s former owner commits Medicare fraud A former owner of a medical equipment supply company in San Gabriel pleaded guilty Monday to conspiring with others to defraud Medicare and now faces a decade in prison. Tigran Aklyan, 37, pleaded guilty of conspiracy to commit health care fraud. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and a quarter

million dollar fine when he is sentenced in August. As president of Las Tunas Medical Equipment Inc., he provided wheelchairs and other equipment not necessary to Medicare beneficiaries and also submitted false claims to Medicare. Aklyan also paid the owners and operators of fraudulent medical clinics to

provide him with prescriptions and supporting medical documents for the power wheelchairs and equipment that he billed to Medicare. Aklyan submitted about $910,377 in fraudulent claims to Medicare for power wheelchairs and related services. Medicare paid Las Tunas Medical Equipment approximately $653,461 .

Life Remembered Alan Stevenson Wood Alan Stevenson Wood, the fourth generation of a prominent pioneering family who helped settle Sierra Madre in the 1880s, died at his home in Sierra Madre on Thursday, April 18, 2013. He was 90. Wood was a World War II veteran, an accomplished artist and longtime official at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Canada. Wood was the great-grandson of Ammi Doubleday Hawks, an influential investor who followed his mother and his sister, Frances, to Sierra Madre in 1881. Hawks purchased 20 acres of land on the east side of Baldwin Avenue, where he established a ranch and fruit packing operations. In 1887, Hawks built an office building on his property at 26 North Baldwin Ave., which his sister later ran as the Tourist Hotel. Wood was particularly proud of his home and his heritage. He spent his entire life in Sierra Madre except for during his service in World War II. A Navy lieutenant, he played a role in the momentous 1945 battle for Iwo Jima. While his LST was beached under Japan’s Mount Suribachi, Wood was approached by a Marine seeking a U.S. flag to raise atop the mountain. Wood handed the Marine the flag, which ended up being used for the iconic photograph taken by Joe Rosenthal. Wood, who was the communications officer of the Navy ship LST-779, had months earlier recovered the flag from a duffel bag stashed at a salvage depot at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. “I was glad to find it because we were out of large flags,” Wood would later recall to a reporter. “Little did I know how famous it would one day become.”

Wood was born May 3, 1922, at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena. His father was an engineer and a violinist. His mother was a trained pianist and dramatic soprano. The family sang for years in the Pasadena Chorus. Wood graduated high school in Pasadena around 1940 and enrolled in the University of California, Berkeley.

After the start of World War II, Wood continued his studies at Berkeley, joined the ROTC and became a Navy officer. He graduated and served in the Pacific theater in the war’s final years. His ship was beached on Iwo Jima during the fiercest period of the assault. There, Wood witnessed the epic battle as the Americans prevailed against Japanese forces to seize the island. “There was a feeling of death in the air that was overpowering,” Wood wrote in a letter to a friend later that year (1945). “Suribachi was a few thousand yards down the beach on our left, and the front line, marked by some entrenched tanks was only a few thousand yards down the beach. Occasionally you could hear the spatter of small-arms fire, all too often a big Japanese mortar would explode with a shattering burst, and with terrible finality, right on the beach in the

midst of all the men, supplies and machines.” After the war, Wood returned to Sierra Madre. He wanted to become a musician but instead attended the Art Center in Pasadena and became an accomplished watercolor painter. Wood married Elizabeth Trimble in 1947 and they had a son. He joined JPL in 1950. He worked at JPL for more than 40 years, first as a technical artist and then in the Public Affairs Office. He illustrated reports and helped coordinate news coverage of JPL’s historic spacecraft missions, including the Mariner, Viking, Voyager and Galileo programs and early tests in the development of the space shuttle. Throughout his life, Wood enjoyed painting, classical music, opera, art house movies, camping, hiking and golf. He loved nature and drew inspiration from California’s vistas and valleys, with Yosemite National Park being his favorite. He was a member of the Yosemite Fund and a benefactor to a variety of charitable organizations. He was preceded in death by his parents, a brother and his wife. He is survived by his brother, the Reverend Roger H. Wood of Sierra Madre, his son Steve (Georgia) Wood of Solana Beach, Calif., grandchildren Casey, Connor, and Cameron, and niece Alison Wood of San Francisco. A memorial service is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, April 27 at Sierra Madre Episcopal Church of the Ascension. Burial will follow at Sierra Madre Pioneer Cemetery. Douglass & Zook Mortuary is handling arrangements.

13th Annual Thorny Rose award announced The 13th Order of the Thorny Rose has spoken. This year’s recipient is Pasadena Star News editor Frank Girardot. The honor is bestowed annually by a secret panel of judges to a local personality who has generated significant controversy in the

greater Pasadena community. Girardot has used the newspaper as a platform to take aim at iconic personalities and institutions, like Paul McCartney ( which we took personal offense to – even if he thought he was being funny – it wasn’t)

The prickly honor, bestowed once a year on a Pasadena citizen, or group of citizens, and has been euphemistically called the city’s “biggest pain-in-the-ass award.” Onward to Doo Dah April 27.

It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier’s checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state.

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.

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 same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

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.

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 same 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.
