Duarte city council holds community meetings The Duarte City Council asked for and was offered a few ideas about what some residents would like to see accomplished in Duarte in the future at the first of a series of special community meetings designed to provide in-depth information on important topics facing the City of Duarte. About two-dozen persons attended the meeting held in the Andres Duarte School Cafeteria where officials provided them with information and updates on the City budget, community involvement and outreach, public safety, and Gold Line construction, and then asked for their feedback on important issues in the City. "It was a great first Neighborhood Community meeting. I was very pleased with the interest and participation of residents. Those attending provided the City Council with a lot of good feedback," said Mayor Finlay. Residents shared their visions for the future of Duarte: Citywide Wi-Fi, City buildings updated with LED Please see page 22

On May 7, 2013 shortly before 8:00 p.m., APD received a series of 9-1-1 calls in reference a traffic collision that occurred in the 200 block of west Foothill Blvd. The collision reportedly involving a motorcycle.

Liao was seated after a two month ordeal at Tuesday night’s regular city council meeting. Liao was the second highest vote receiver in the March 5 election. However, a challenge to whether or not Liao lives in the city of San Gabriel came up and the council voted to establish it-

Pasadena man charged with torture and sex-related crimes On April 28, 2013 shortly before 9:00 AM, Pasadena Police Dispatchers (PPD) received a 911 call transfer from the California Highway Patrol. The woman on the phone was distraught and uttered she was in Pasadena and had been burned and tied up by a male. The call was then disconnected. Pasadena Police Officer connected the caller’s phone number to a residence in the 700 block of N. Pasadena Avenue.

Dorothy's Place 'Tis a bit incongruous

By Dorothy Denne With the return of temperatures over ninety degrees last week, afternoons found me hanging out in my air-conditioned haunts. I was sitting in one when the guy next to me complained, "It is colder than Hell in here. Why don't they turn the thermostat up?" Now, my first thought was that the twit had lost his mind. The main reason a lot of us were in there was to get cool. Then what he had said hit me a different way. He had said, "... colder than Hell." I would hope it was colder than Hell. One of the reasons I sometimes-

resist temptations and instead follow the straightand-narrow is because I don't want to burn in Hell. I've been taught that it is very hot there. I bet even our outdoor temperatures in the nineties were colder than Hell. I still thought he was a twit to desire a warmer temperature but now I was obsessed with the idea that his statement was totally incongruous. I'm a little twitty myself so I often get intrigued by that kind of thought. Makes for a chuckle now and then. Why do schools teach good nutrition in their classes then serve "fast food" in their cafeterias? Speaking of nutrition, or the lack of it, why do people order double bacon cheeseburgers, large fries and a diet coke? And,

why do we sell hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight? Isn't it kind of incongruous to have handicap parking places in front of a karate school? Strange, too, that banks have open doors and open teller windows but the pens are chained to the counters. Think about this -why do people leave cars worth thousands of dollars sitting in the driveway and leave useless things and junk in boxes in the garage? Most confusing to me, why do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place? 'Tis a bit incongruous.

San Gabriel can now move forward Dear Editor: Along with countless watchful eyes, I applauded the decision of vindicating Mr. Chin-Ho Liao, the second highest vote winner and allowing him to serve on the city council of San Gabriel. Here’s a drama so unheard of: Mr. Liao was certified by the City of San Gabriel as a candidate and was put on the ballot in the March 5th municipal election. Two months has passed since the people of San Gabriel duly elected him as a democratically elected council member. Instead of seating him, based on one single complaint, the City Council decided to anoint themselves as judges and jurors, held hearings to determine his eligibility as a candidate. As expected, many in the community rose up and cried foul; an overwhelming conflict of interest was called into question. Basically, it came down to this: “Four members of the San Gabriel City Council gave themselves authority to decide whether a fifth councilman-elect was eligible to take office”, lamented by Southern California Public Radio, KPCC. Last Friday, prominent local, state and federal elected officials gathered and stood as an united front, at an intense and emotional meeting denounced the City Council's actions. Also, a Superior Court judge had issued an order, unless proven otherwise, requiring the City Council to install Mr. Liao in office by May 14. Late Monday afternoon, after all the hooplas, in the crowded council chamber, the San Gabriel City Council voted 3-1, decided in favor of seating Mr. Liao

after all, in council meeting on the following day. Had the outcome gone the other way, this whole saga would have made a mockery of our entire democratic process. This has stained the city, and sure to scarred the reputation of America's most fundamental cornerstones of justice and fair elections--for a long, long time to come. We're talking about "A city on the hill, the shining example for the world to see. The land of the free, the government of the people, by the people, for the people?" Now, this is not about one person! Is this about race? Don’t make me laugh! As a newcomer to this great community, I will never have enough words or ever adequately convey our profound gratitude for the people, and leaders, for their embracing of our citizenry. However, with 2/3 of San Gabriel residents tracing their roots from the same ancestral root, you know billions still hadn’t seen the ‘light’ or tasted authentic freedom. What happened here is bound to send shock waves. Instead of celebrating a brilliant, successful testimonial of an accomplished immigrant, people on both sides of the hemisphere and around the world are seeing this shenanigan unfolding. Thankfully, we have just saved an embarrassment for this city, along with our great and beloved country, and avoided a ‘black eye’ on her over 200 years’ record of freedom, equality, and democracy. With Mr. Liao, a retired engineer, we are talking of a man of impecable

integrity and of unquestioned moral fiber. For a quarter century, Mr. Liao committed himself to helping, serving, and giving much to this great community. Yet, they threw everything at him, including the kitchen sink (for the sake of... What?) Dragging him, and his lovely family through so much. This is RIDICULOUS! At the press conference, this gracious, humble and classy man thanked the people on both sides, with tears on his eyes, and a forgiving smile, he pledged to work towards a better future for San Gabriel. Finally, we can look forward to Mr. Liao with his open arms, an increased stature and taking important roles in shepherding the city he loves so dearly. And, for the rest of us--the warmblooded sons and daughters of America to remember: such an episode of trying to hang on to power would not be repeated or tolerated anytime soon. Not anywhere in this great land we all love to cherish! Now that the smoke is finally cleared, and the dust settled, the relic San Gabriel can look forward to her much anticipated Centennial Celebrations: A city so rich in history, the cradle of the modern Angelenos civilization, and a proud, sacred community pulsating with lives, deep cultures and never-say-die revivals. With a mountain range hovering high above, standing guard and named after her, all of us are glad to see the city of the Arch Angel moving forward and marching into her second century with leadership, wisdom and dignity. Watson Gan

The circus has left town Dear Editor: The Kangaroo Court has closed and the Circus has pulled down their tents and left town.. The San Gabriel City Council finally put their heads on straight today and voted 3 - 1 to seat newly elected Councilmember Chin Ho Liao. I cried tears of joy as the decision was announced. The masks came off the Clowns and they headed for the door. Today was not the day for their main event.

I had hoped all along that Juli Costanzo would do the right thing and thankfully she did. In the long run the majority of the council pulled together and our city can now begin to heal. This is the year of our Centennial Celebration and it's time to really Celebrate ! Our Coalition to Save San Gabriel was blessed with an amazing team of supporters and advisors from all over San Gabriel and the San Gabriel Valley.

Much thanks to everyone. There is a quote from Edmund Burke that I am very fond of and it seems appropriate for this situation: "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." Today, good men and women acted, did something, and an evil situation was torn down.. Happy Birthday San Gabriel. This time for real. Sally Baldwin San Gabriel

City of Rosemead to host mental health workshop - May 16 The City of Rosemead Public Safety CONNECTIONS Forum is hosting a Mental Health Awareness workshop, “Understanding our Loved Ones Who Suffer with Mental Illness” on Thursday, May 16, 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the Public Safety Center, 8301 Garvey Avenue. Mental illnesses can take many forms, just as physical illnesses do. Mental illnesses are still feared and misunderstood by many people, but fear will fade as people learn more about them. Most families are affected by mental illness, regardless of race, age, religion or economic status – mental illness impacts the lives of one in four adults and one in 10 children across the United States. If you, or someone you know, is impacted by mental illness, there is good news. Mental illness can be treated and recovery is achievable. This workshop is free and open to the public. Parents and families are encouraged to attend. In Our Own

Voice Presenters from the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI) will share their personal stories about how they cope with mental illness while creating rich and meaningful lives. This unique presentation offers insight into the hope and recovery possible for people living with mental illness. NAMIis the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI State Organizations, hundreds of NAMI affiliates and volunteer leaders work in local communities across the United States to raise awareness, provide essential and free education, advocacy and support group programs, and build a community of hope for all of those impacted by mental illness. For more information about the workshop, please contact Mandy Wong, Public Safety Coordinator, by calling (626) 569-2292 or e-mailing mwong@cityofrosemead.org.

EFF and ACLU sue Los Angeles law enforcement agencies over automatic license-plate reader records The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Southern California (ACLU/SC) jointly filed suit against two Los Angeles-area law-enforcement agencies over their failure to produce records related to the use of automatic license plate readers (ALPRs) — sophisticated camera systems mounted on squad cars and telephone poles that read license plates and record the time, date, and location a particular car was encountered. EFF and the ACLU/SC filed requests with the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department under the California Public Records Act seeking documents relating to policy and training on ALPRs, as well as a week’s

worth of ALPR data collected by the agencies in 2012. While the sheriff and police departments produced some materials, they failed to provide documents related to sharing information with other agencies, and neither agency has produced the data collected during the oneweek period. The complaint was filed with the Los Angeles County Superior Court. “Police can and should treat location information from ALPRs like other sensitive information — they should retain it no longer than necessary to determine if it might be relevant to a crime, and should get a warrant to keep it any longer,” said ACLU Senior Staff Attorney Peter Bibring. “They should limit who can access it, who they can share it with

and create an oversight system to make sure the limits are followed.” “Location-based information like license plate data can be very revealing,” said EFF Staff Attorney Jennifer Lynch. “By matching your car to a particular time, date and location, and then building a database of that information over time, law enforcement can learn where you work and live, what doctor you go to, which religious services you attend, and who your friends are. The public needs access to the data the police actually collected to be able to make informed decisions about how ALPR systems can and can’t be used.” ALPRs can be mounted on a fixed point (such as a light post) or on a patrol vehicle, and can record up to

14,000 plates in a single shift. While police can match license plates against databases to find stolen or wanted cars, the systems keep information on every car — even where there’s no reason to think the car is connected to any crime. According to a June 2012 story in LA Weekly, the sheriff and the police departments conduct, on average, approximately 22 scans for every one of the 7 million vehicles registered in Los Angeles County. As of June, the departments reportedly logged more than 160 million data points. EFF and the ACLU have asked a judge to issue a writ directing the agencies to hand over all requested records and award appropriate legal fees.

lence in high school musical theatre, as well as focusing much needed attention on the meaningful work being done by the dedicated arts teachers of Southern California. It is the Pantages ceremony that will determine who will go to New York for The National High School Musical Theatre Awards, also known as The Jimmy’s, which take place annually at the Minskoff Theatre on Broadway in New York City. Students receive opportunities for merit scholarships, professional advancement and other prizes. THE JERRY HERMAN AWARDS are presented to winners in multiple categories. Every year the winners of Best Leading Actor and Best Leading Actress at the Pantages will

also each receive a check for $1,000 plus an all-expenses paid trip to New York. While in New York the winners will experience five days of private coaching, master classes and rehearsals with theatre professionals. This experience will lead up to the grand finale, as they appear before a panel of industry experts selecting exceptional students to complete for The Jimmy™ Awards for Best Performance by an Actress and Actor as part of the National High School Musical Theater Awards, which culminate in a performance at Nederlander’s Minskoff Theatre on Broadway.

Consider joining the City of El Monte’s efforts to put our community back to work by becoming a sponsor of the City’s upcoming job fair on Friday, June 21. “We are asking for business in the San Gabriel Valley to join us at this important community job fair,” said Councilman Juventino “J” Gomez, who serves as co-chair of the event along with his colleague Mayor Pro Tem Norma Macias. “These sponsorships will help us to attract even more job-seekers, leading to better candidates for local businesses and ensuring more of our residents get back to work.” The El Monte Job Fair will be a one-stop venue for employers to meet with thousands of local job-seekers. Last year’s successful event

attracted more than 3,000 participants. “This job fair will connect employers with thousands of qualified potential employees,” said Mayor Pro Tem Norma Macias. “I hope many of the businesses in the City of El Monte and throughout the region take advantage of this sponsorship opportunity.” Sponsorships start at $500 and will include advertising your business name in various promotional materials. Larger sponsorships include announcements on public access channels, logos on street banners and prime event placement. Sponsorships will help the City offset the costs of running the fair, including advertising, event preparations and materials.

The Social Whirl Soroptimists inspire women to ‘live your dream' The Women’s City Club in Pasadena provided a very elegant setting for Soroptimist International of Altadena-Pasadena’s fourth annual “Live Your Dream” luncheon. This event – the organization’s signature project -- honored three local women, and was held on April 24. The first honoree was Jackie Knowles, the recipient of the Ruby Award for Women Helping Women. This award honors women who have worked to improve the lives of women and girls through their professional or volunteer efforts. Jackie provided the necessary leadership and perseverance to open The Women’s Room, a safe place for homeless and at-risk women to rest, have a meal, and access services and support. Jackie currently serves as facilitator and manager of The Women’s Room. When accepting the award, Jackie stated that what started out to be a daytime refuge for just a few women has now grown to 20 – 30 homeless attendees a day. “It could happen to you or I,” she acknowledged. The second honoree was Elizabeth Claire Lambert, winner of the Violet Richardson Award. This award is named after the president of the first Soroptimist club, and is given to young women who make a difference in their communities through volunteer service. Elizabeth recognized the need for a safe haven for students at Eliot Middle School in Altadena to meet with counselors. As her Girl Scout Gold Award proj-

ect, Elizabeth transformed an empty room into a decorated and furnished space with furniture, student art, and office space for the counselor. Elizabeth, who plans to pursue psychology specializing in adolescents, thanked the Soroptimists, the personnel at Eliot Middle School, and her parents, who were also in attendance. One highlight of the event came about when Vanessa Manjarrez, the 2012 Violet Richardson Award winner, made an appearance. Since she was named last year’s VRA winner, she became the 2013 Tournament of Roses Queen, and recounted some of her experiences during the year thus far. And finally, the Women’s Opportunity Award was given to Philandria M. Brown. This award is given to women who are overcoming personal difficulties and to help them improve their economic status in order to enter or re-enter the workplace. After a period of homelessness, Philandria once received

support and counseling at Elizabeth House, a shelter for pregnant and homeless women. She and her family have since moved to affordable housing. Philandria, a single mother and sole provider for her three children, is a fulltime student at Pasadena City College. She plans to transfer to CSU Northridge to continue her studies, with a goal of becoming a business consultant and helping small businesses through marketing promotions. She says, “Life has put many obstacles in my way, but through faith and perseverance, I have been able to overcome them.” In addition to the Soroptimist awards, the winners received commendations from Senator Carol Liu, in addition to several other local government offices. Soroptimist member Hazel SalomonJimmy donated handbags to each of the women. All in all -- a very uplifting, inspiring occasion. For more information on Soroptimists, visit www. soroptimist.org.

AQMD to install monitoring systems to measure harmful particulates from Vulcan mining operation to begin above Duarte With Vulcan Materials Company given the green light by the State Court of Appeals to begin mining operations on Van Tassel Ridge above Duarte, the City has moved ahead with plans for Southern California Air Quality Management District (AQMD) to install monitoring equipment to measure the particulate matter that will be released into the atmosphere from the Vulcan operation. In a presentation to the Duarte City Council, AQMD's Philip M. Fine, Ph.D., assistant deputy executive officer of Science and Technology Advancement, explained the quality, cost and maintenance of a proposed "real time" measuring method. The system would offer continuous monitoring and hourly averages of PM10, particulate matter that are between 2.5 and 10 micrometers in size (25 to 100 times thinner than a human hair). The byproduct

of crushing and grinding rocks and soil, PM10 are blown by the wind and can stay in the air for minutes or hours and travel as little as 100 yards or up to 30 miles. Inhalation of PM10 particles pose a danger to respiratory health because they can lodge deep in the lungs. Of special concern is the potential impact to the thousands of residents in neighborhoods below the Vulcan operation and to the more than 400 students who attend Valley View Elementary School situated 3,000 feet below the mining site. One of two AQMD monitoring systems to be installed will be located at Valley View School, 237 Melcanyon Rd. The City, AQMD and the Duarte Unified School District are already doing preliminary work on the Valley View site. Once the equipment is ordered it will take approximately three months to complete

the work and installation. A second monitoring system will be installed in Azusa at the water yard site. The two sites are approximate equal distance on either side from the predominant wind direction. AQMD estimates the cost for the first year of proposed measurement for the two sites at $100,000. Costs per site would include $6,500 site preparation, $36,500 and $7,000 operation and maintenance. It is proposed that the costs be split equally between AQMD, City of Duarte, City of Azusa and Vulcan. Once monitoring equipment is installed and mining operations at the 80 acre site atop Van Tassel Ridge have begun, AQMD will provide regular reporting of preliminary data that will be made publically available. After one year of measurements, data would be assessed and a finalized report will

be made public. Duarte has fought a long and costly battle to stop the City of Azusa from allowing Vulcan to move mining operations from a previously approved 80 acres on the east side of its 270 acre property to 80 acres on the west side, above Duarte homes. In February 2013, the State Court of Appeals upheld a Superior Court ruling of May 2012 against Duarte's lawsuit that challenged the validity of the Environmental Impact Report. As approved by the Azusa City Council, the Vulcan Mining expansion project is poised to destroy Van Tassel Ridge by extracting 105.6 million tons of aggregate from the mountain between now and 2038. Over the same period, the City of Azusa stands to make more than $65 million in mining fees and incentives from Vulcan at the expense of its neighbors in Duarte.

effect since 2003 to prevent smuggling, but does little to reduce underage sales. Enforcement of tobacco control laws by local agencies through adoption of a local licensing program allows for consistent compliance checks of all retailers. While state and federal law make it illegal to sell tobacco products to minors, the state can only do compliance checks in about eight percent of the stores in California that sell tobacco. On the federal level, the Food and Drug Administration has yet to award a contract to California for enforcement of illegal sales to minors. Local tobacco retailer licensing ordinances are not preempted by either state or federal law and are essential to getting compliance checks in the Duarte community.

retailer inspection and compliance checks, documentation of violations, and prosecution of violators. There are currently 26 tobacco retail locations in the City. In an effort to reach out and inform the tobacco retailers of the proposed ordinance, the City worked with the Duarte Chamber of Commerce to conduct an informational workshop on April 3. Each tobacco retailer was personally visited by the Chamber and provided with informed about the workshop and the proposed ordinance. Only one of the 26 tobacco retailers attended the workshop. Due to the low turnout, the Glendale Adventist Medical Center staff delivered a copy of the presentation to each retailer in an effort to further educate each establishment.

A second public hearing is scheduled for May 14 on an ordinance that would require tobacco retailers within the City of Duarte to purchase an annual license. The Duarte City Council voted preliminary approval of the ordinance following the first public hearing on April 30. The proposed tobacco retail license ordinance will allow the City to better monitor the sales of tobacco to minors. It would prohibit the sale of tobacco products without a City-issued tobacco retailer license, specify regulations pertaining to the sale of tobacco products, and set enforcement procedures and penalties for the sale of tobacco to minors. An annual fee of $100, established by resolution, would recover the cost of administration and enforcement, including the issue of a license, retailer education,

Now imagine her joy when she can see them again. Thanks to a groundbreaking new treatment program called CentraSight®, this dream can now be a reality for patients around the country with end-stage age related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness in older Americans. More than 15 million Americans are affected by some form of macular degeneration, a progressive disease that can lead to severe vision loss in its most advanced form, end-stage AMD. The number is expected to double with the rapid aging of the U.S. population. Macular Degeneration attacks the macula of the eye, where one’s sharpest central vision occurs. Although it does not cause complete blindness, patients with end-stage AMD have a central blind spot, or missing area, in their vision. This vision loss makes it difficult or impossible to see faces, read, and

perform everyday activities such as watching TV, preparing meals, and selfcare. For many people, the first sign of AMD is something they notice “Today, I saw my themselves.

Ms. Senior Pasadena crowned Alise Richel-Adler begins her journey Alise Richel-Adler from west Los Angeles was crowned Ms. Senior Pasadena 2013 at the fifth of eight preliminary pageants for the Ms. Senior California Pageant held Saturday, May 4, 2013 at the Pasadena Senior Center. Richel-Adler will now advance to the State Pageant to compete for the title of Ms. Senior California in August, along with first runner up Barbara Sheahan from Sun Lakes. The Ms. Senior California State Pageant will be at the Rose Center Theater in Westminster on Saturday, August 31, 2013. Second runner-up went to Jeri Carr-Benson from Northridge. Winner Richel-Adler also took home the top talent award with her breathtaking rendition of Granada. She chose this song because it is “an exciting song and I have a lot of fun playing with it. The audience shares my enthusiasm for the song.” Richel-Adler also sings opera and loves the American Songbook, the ballads of the 40’s and today’s music of a similar genre. She’s also a jazz enthusiast; and appreciates great jazz singers and jazz

pianists. Professionally, she is a voice teacher….from opera to pop and favorites from the American Songbook. She is also a pianist. Throughout the competition, the contestants competed in four categories including: Personal Interview, Evening Gown, Philosophy of Life and Talent. RichelAdler’s walk across the stage to accept the sash and trophy marked her first steps on a journey that will take her from spotlight to spotlight representing the American woman 60 years of age and up who has reached the ‘age of elegance’. Richel-Adler was born in Brooklyn, New York and studied with great conductors from the Metropolitan Opera, the Vienna State Opera as well as conductors from LaScala. For two summers, she studied in the Opera Department at Tanglewood under the auspices of Leonard Bernstein. She also studied in the Opera Workshop at Columbia University. While studying at Columbia, her rehearsal pianist was John Kander who went on to write greats such as “New York,

New York.” She married and then raised two children and continued singing, but did not pursue her career. She later moved to Florida and lived in Boca Raton and while there, she sang with large Florida symphonies and appeared on numerous large stages in South Florida. Years later she moved to Los Angeles to be near her son who was then living in Los Angeles. Richel-Adler continues singing and is now teaching vocal students on a part time basis. She met the “love of her life” in Los Angeles, and married him in May of 2012. Currently, she’s writing a book based on her approach to the art of singing. The Ms. Senior America Pageant is the world's first and foremost pageant to emphasize and give honor to women who have reached the ‘Age of Elegance’. It is a search for the gracious lady who best exemplifies the dignity, maturity and inner beauty of all Baby Boomer and Senior women. The Ms. Senior America philosophy is based upon the belief that Baby Boomers and seniors are the foundation of America, and

one of our country’s most valuable resources. Women and men alike of these generations inspire their peers and younger generations to stay vital and connected to life! It is also upon their knowledge, wisdom and experience that younger generations have the opportunity to build a better society. The next preliminary pageant will be the Ms. Senior Conjejo Pageant on May 19, 2013 at the Conejo Valley Goebel Senior Center, 1385 East Janss Road in Thousand Oaks. If you are interested in being a contestant, please contact Conejo Valley Pageant Director, Marilyn McCabe Kohler at (949) 830-4187 or email MsSrCaDirector@aol.com. Sponsors of the Ms. Senior California Pageant include: Emeritus Senior Living, Kaiser Permanente – Medicare & State Programs, Aetna West Region-Medicare Supplement Plans, and CareMore Health Plan.

fund projects on campus that focus primarily on upgrading much of the schools outdated technology for students and staff.

Chin Ho Liao seated on San Gabriel council after two-month residency challenge Continued from page 1

Gabriel. I’m going to keep working hard to improve our community as a council member.” Council Member John Harrington – who voted to keep the matter going forward – said Liao gave eight different reasons why he had no intent of staying in the city if he weren’t elected. “The candidate has testified to his intent to live and die in San Gabriel but his actions don’t support it,” Harrington said. “Running for council is the only reason for living in San Gabriel where he has to be domiciled.” However, Council Member Juli Costanzo said Liao needed to be seated as he did not break the law. “Although I don’t approve of Mr. Liao’s activities, I don’t believe they were unlawful,” she said. Costanzo added there were several issues leading to her decision. “I think we saw a signed lease and other factors that proved there is intent (to live at a San Gabriel apartment),” she said. After an edgy and disputatious two months since the March election, Chin Ho

Liao was irrevocably allowed his seat on council Tuesday evening. Scores of supporters and a principally Asian media were on hand to welcome their friend onto the council yearning for better representation in San Gabriel politics. It was an emotional night with impassioned ‘thank you’s’ to all his supporters after the swearing in. Monday, on behalf of their client Chin Ho Liao, councilmember-elect of the San Gabriel City Council, the Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC), a member of the Asian American Center for Advancing Justice, expressed joy in the city council’s decision to uphold Liao’s right to take his place as the newest democratically elected member of the council. Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27) said: "I applaud the San Gabriel City Council for doing the right thing and voting to seat Chin Ho Liao. It has been a long, 2-month road for Chin Ho, and finally, he is able to take the seat that was due to him. I also applaud the residents of San Gabriel for their courage and persis-

tence in speaking out on this issue, and on the importance of upholding democracy in the city of San Gabriel. I congratulate Councilmemberelect Liao, and look forward to working together with him on the issues facing San Gabriel." Liao was the secondhighest vote winner in San Gabriel’s March 5, 2013 election, where the top three candidates should have been seated on the council. "Despite his victory and in violation of state law, the council voted against seating Mr. Liao as a result of a single complaint it received regarding his residency qualifications. The council also voted to rule on the complaint itself, " said the APALC. “On April 25-27, the council held a three-day hearing to hear testimony and examine evidence regarding Liao’s eligibility. Today, based on overwhelming evidence in favor of Liao, the council correctly concluded that Liao is qualified to assume the office to which he was duly elected.” “The City Council’s decision underscores what the people of San Gabriel have known along, that I am

qualified to represent them as a member of the City Council,” said Chin Ho Liao. “I am deeply humbled by the outpouring of sentiment that community members have demonstrated in support of my right to represent them. I look forward to being sworn in as soon as possible so I can get to the job of serving the community of San Gabriel.” “APALC took Mr. Liao’s case because it involves two compelling, intersecting stories,” said Eugene Lee, voting rights project director at APALC. “This is Mr. Liao’s personal story as an immigrant who has served the community of San Gabriel for the past 24 years through his involvement with nonprofit and civic organizations, and wishes only to serve the community further through the American tradition of public service. And this is the story of San Gabriel and the San Gabriel Valley region, an area marked by massive demographic changes during the past quarter-century, resulting in a population of Asian Americans and other immigrants who are increasingly participating in the American tradition of democracy. After

two months of unnecessary divisiveness, the efforts of Mr. Liao and San Gabriel voters to honor these traditions are finally being given their due respect. Now the city must begin a healing process, and we will do whatever we can to help in that process. ” “This case was not about technical residency rules. This case was about two fundamental rights, the right to hold office and the right to vote.

These rights are inextricably intertwined,” said Nilay U. Vora of Bird Marella, which is pro bono counsel through APALC for Liao. “What good is the right to vote if the person you voted for is denied the right to hold the office to which he or she is duly elected? The City Council’s decision today avoids further infringement of these rights. Please see page 21

PRESCRIBING FOR SLEEP APNEA? YOUR DME COMPANY LETTING YOU DOWN? If you’re frustrated with your DME provider, find out why thousands of physicians prefer “Classic”

Why Classic?

“Sleep” is our specialty. That’s right, no oxygen, scooters, wheelchairs, beds or other DME. We supply only PAP equipment and related replenishment supplies. This allows us to be real experts in what we do and to concentrate on delivering the patient care that matters. The fact we serve more than 18,000 patients over 18 states and are growing rapidly is testament to our focus and commitment to delivering timely setup and having happy and compliant patients.

Compliance through great patient care

is what really sets us apart from the pack. Our licensed respiratory professionals (respiratory therapists and registered sleep techs) work with patients from the time of setup and throughout their therapy with one goal in mind…to ensure they quickly adapt to their therapy and stay compliant over time.

Our CPAP Circle of Care® program

was carefully designed to achieve this. The first step of the program is for one of our licensed respiratory therapists to complete the setup faceto-face with the patient, either in their home or their doctor’s office, usually within 72 hours of approval. Our R/T will set the machine to the prescription and then educate the patient on its use, care and maintenance. And educate the patient on what to expect over the first days and weeks of their therapy. We set up all patients on the highest quality machines fitted with wireless modems (regardless of insurance). And we leave the modems on the machine indefinitely so as to be

We relieve you from the burden of answering day-to-day equipment issues.

able to continue to collect usage data. After setup patients are passed to our patient care center for ongoing compliance care. Our licensed clinicians make outgoing calls at 72 hours, 30 days and 90 days after setup to interdict any problems patients may be having. A field R/T will make a re-visit to a patient in their home where a problem cannot be resolved over the phone.

Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance

When calling patients we use data generated from our proprietary Download on Demand® software. This takes the raw data streams from patient’s modems, parses the data to produce compliance reports containing key data points and a graph that our clinicians use so that they can have an intelligent conversation with the patient based on that patient’s actual use of their equipment. Of course patients can (and do!) call in to our patient care center for help and advice from our clinicians at any time.

Our goal is to have happy, compliant patients while taking the brunt of the every-day questions patients invariably have. This relieves the burden from our referring physician’s offices who otherwise have to deal with this call volume, and depending on the experience of the doctor in this field, may not be able to answer typical questions the patient has regarding equipment issues (e.g. how to fix a leaking mask).

Skeptical?

So you’ve heard it all before? All the DME’s brag that they’re the best and have a great compliance and supply replenishment program.... everybody talks the talk...so who do you believe? Your patients...that’s who! We’ll prove it to you. Send us two or three patients and then ask your patients about the care they received and their opinion of the process... then compare the results to your existing DME provider. Talk to your staff about the interaction they have with our office. Look at our documentation. Reach out to Bill Kleiman (contact info below) to set up an inservice over lunch with your staff to go over our program and answer any questionvs you may have.

The prescribing doctor receives documentation by eFax (or electronically via EMR system integration), starting with confirmation of receipt of the referral through every touch we have with the patient. This includes a copy of the 2-page compliance reports containing our Download on Demand® data and a copy of the notes made by our clinician during a call. Our proprietary systems automate the flow of documentation keeping referring doctors completely informed about their patients’ progress and ensure physicians have the documentation they need for follow-up consultations with their patients.

Arcadia, Monrovia Rotarians build garden for local youth

California declares May 5-11, “Wildfire Awareness Week”

by Anne Donofrio-Holter

The Arcadia and Monrovia Rotary Clubs have joined forces to build a sustainable garden at the Monrovia Boys and Girls Club. With funds donated by both clubs, along with a Rotary District 5300 Foundation Lefler grant, the project will enable children to grow fresh fruit and vegetables. "I had heard in the news about hunger in the United States with numbers higher than many would expect, especially for children," said Dr. Brad Miller, Arcadia Rotary past president. "Then after reading about community gardens sponsored by Rotary clubs, the idea came together." After failing to secure land for the garden in Arcadia, Maryann Lutz, Rotarian and mayor of Monrovia, suggested they try the Monrovia Boys and Girls Club. "Not so much serving the whole community, but serving a specific community, underprivileged kids," said Miller. "John Wilson, CEO of Monrovia Boys and Girls Club, had initiated a community garden in a prior

non-profit he was involved with. We connected and it was a natural fit." According to Arcadia Rotary President Eric Barter, in just half a day, "with a little sweat and muscle from 25 Rotarians," phase one of the project was completed which consisted of the construction of three planter boxes. “The Monrovia Rotary Club enjoyed working side by side with the Arcadia Rotary Club on this project. It was a day filled with laughter, hard work and fellow-

ship," said Monrovia Rotary Club President Julie Roybal. "We are all excited to see our work manifest to the betterment of the Boys and Girls Club and it will be wonderful to see the fruits of the kids' harvest.” "I am pleased to see several organizations working together for the good of youth," said Barter. "The City of Monrovia for allowing us to use the land and supporting the project, the Arcadia and Monrovia Rotary clubs working together,

the Arcadia arboretum for their guidance on the raised bed design and Rotary District 5300 for helping us with the funding." Phase two of the project is an irrigation system and phase three, a covering for the planter boxes. "Then the kids can start planting," said Barter. "As Rotarians, these are the best projects - hands on. Together we can make a difference is the mantra for my year as president and this project is another fine example."

California has already experienced an increase in fire activity, and to ensure Californians are ready, Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. has declared May 5-11, 2013 as “Wildfire Awareness Week”. During Wildfire Awareness Week CAL FIRE is reminding residents of the dangers from wildfires and the simple steps that should be followed to prepare and prevent them. “The conditions right now are what we should be experiencing in June,” said Chief Ken Pimlott, CAL FIRE Director. “This year’s dry winter has resulted in a significant increase in fire activity, in fact CAL FIRE firefighters have responded to nearly 1,100 wildfires this year, which is over 500 more than average.” According to the state’s final snow survey on May 2, the statewide snowpack water content is only 17 percent of normal. From January through May 2, nearly 23,000 acres have burned in California, which is significantly more than the 1,250 acres

that had burned for the same time period last year. During Wildfire Awareness Week, CAL FIRE is reminding Californians that when it comes to wildfires, remember “Ready, Set, Go!”. Being Ready for a wildfire starts by maintaining 100 feet of Defensible Space and hardening homes with fire resistant building materials. “It’s critical that residents prepare for wildfires by maintaining 100 feet of Defensible Space around all homes,” said Chief Pimlott. “Most wildfires are preventable and we need residents and vacationers to be extra cautious outdoors so we can prevent wildfires from occurring in the first place.” Homeowners looking for additional information on how to prepare themselves, their families and their homes for wildfire can visit www. ReadyForWildfire.org. The site offers tips for residents to make their homes more resistant to wildfires and to ensure that their families are ready to evacuate early and safely when a wildfire strikes.

The Pasadena Police Department, numerous faith based organizations, and many non-profit and business sectors have joined together to facilitate the first Pasadena Gun Buy Back Program and Peace Source Fair, being held on Saturday, May 11, 2013. The goal behind our efforts is to remove unwanted firearms from the community, to educate the public on proactive gun safety, and to promote a safer community through the showcasing of area groups involved in violence prevention, intervention and resource assistance. During the Peace-Source Fair, civic, community and religious leaders will share insight into on-going efforts to reduce violence in our com-

munity. The Pasadena Police Department will host the Gun Buy Back Program between 11am- 3 pm in front of the police station, 207 N. Garfield Avenue. Attendees will be asked to remain in their vehicles with all firearms stored unloaded and in the trunk of their vehicles. Vehicle traffic will be directed southbound only on Garfield Avenue from Walnut Street. Law enforcement personnel will contact drivers in their cars, safely remove all firearms from the vehicle and after disposing of the firearms in a receptacle, deliver gift cards back to the driver, who will be directed out of the processing area southbound toward Ramona Avenue.

Gift certificates will be issued as follows: $50.00 for a non-working firearm, $100.00 for working handguns, rifles or shotguns, and $200.00 for functioning military style assault weapons. Weapons will be evaluation by on-scene firearms experts before gift cards are issued. The Peace-Source Fair is scheduled between 11 am - 2 pm and situated on Thurgood Marshall between Garfield Avenue and Euclid Avenue, north of Pasadena City Hall. The fair will feature speakers, live music, resource tables, and food trucks. Parking is available at Euclid Avenue and Walnut Street or Euclid Avenue and Union Street.

Tuesday April 30 A traffic collision occurred at 3:30pm on Baldwin Avenue north of Montecito Avenue. A vehicle pulling away from the curb collided with another vehicle travelling north on Baldwin Avenue. No injuries were reported and only minor vehicle damage was sustained. Thursday May 2 At 1am, a vehicle travelling south on Hermosa Avenue approaching Sierra Madre Boulevard ran off the roadway and collided with a tree. When police arrived, the driver was conscious but incoherent. The investigation revealed that the driver had taken new prescription medication and may have caused an adverse effect. The driver was transported to Huntington Memorial Hospital for treatment. The vehicle sustained major damage. Between 1am and noon, unknown suspects entered a residence in the 100 block of East Alegria Avenue through an unlocked sliding glass door on the side of the structure. The suspect (s) took a laptop computer and other small electronic devices then exited via the same door. The investigation revealed the suspect (s) may have made entry attempts at three other window locations as screens had been removed and dirt on the window sills disturbed. A neighbor reported a work crew in the area that morning and the investigation is pursuing that lead. Sunday May 5 At 10am, the security operations center that monitors the ATM for Bank of the West contacted the Department. The operator had been monitoring activity at the branch located at 100 west Sierra Madre Boulevard and became suspicious that a “skimmer” had been installed on the ATM at that location. When officers arrived, the described suspects were no longer in the area. A technician arrived, examined the ATM and found a skimming device. That ATM was immediately taken off-line. The skimmer was booked as evidence by the Department and video surveillance will be examined.

Prescription drug take-back day results in 15 tons of RX meds On Saturday, April 27, DEA personnel from the Los Angeles Field Division and more than 100 state and local law enforcement partners, working at 204 locations, collected 31,538 pounds (more than 15 tons) of medication from members of the public as part of the sixth National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. This event aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications. The DEA Los Angeles Field Division encompasses seven counties in the greater Los Angeles area, the States of Nevada and Hawaii, Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands (CNMI). In the Los Angeles area, local law enforcement agencies from Ventura, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties collected 26,352 pounds. In Nevada, agents and local law enforcement officers collected 2,409 pounds of prescription medications. In Hawaii, Guam, and the CMNI, agents and local law enforcement officers collected 2,777 pounds of medications at locations throughout the islands. A total of 742,497

pounds (371 tons) of prescription medication was collected nationwide during this most recent event. When added to the collections from DEA’s previous five TakeBack events, more than 2.8 million pounds (1,409 tons) of prescription medications have been removed from circulation nationwide. Many collection sites provided “drive-thru” service to provide convenient access for residents. Community groups and coalitions also joined with local law enforcement agencies to provide drug awareness literature and community resource information. According to the 2011 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), twice as many Americans regularly abused prescription drugs than the number of those who regularly used cocaine, hallucinogens, heroin, and inhalants combined. That same study revealed more than 70 percent of people abusing prescription pain relievers got them through friends or relatives, a statistic that includes raiding the family medicine cabinet. The DEA’s Take-Back events are a significant piece of the White House’s prescription drug abuse prevention strategy released in 2011

by the Office of National Drug Control Policy. Disposal of unwanted, unused or expired drugs is one of four strategies for reducing prescription drug abuse and diversion laid out in Epidemic: Responding to America’s Prescription Drug Abuse Crisis. The other strategies include education of health care providers, patients, parents and youth; enhancing and encouraging the establishment of prescription drug monitoring programs in all the states; and increased enforcement to address doctor shopping and pill mills. Shortly after DEA’s first Take-Back Day event twoand-a-half years ago, Congress passed, and President Obama signed, the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amended the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) to allow the DEA to develop permanent, ongoing, and responsible methods for disposing of controlled-substance medications. Prior to the passage of the above-cited Act, the CSA provided no legal means for transferring possession of controlled substance medications from users to other individuals for disposal. On December 21, 2012, DEA published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on the Disposal of Controlled Substances that seeks to implement the above-cited Act.

Pasadena woman in the running for wildlife caretaker position in Australia’s ‘Best Job in the World Contest’ By Lauren Lewis Opportunities like this come once in a lifetime. Pasadena resident Chanel Hason has a stab at that chance, albeit out of nearly 600,000 entries spanning across the globe. Now she’s one of 25 finalists. There are six dream jobs up for grabs, apparently and Hason has been chosen as a Top 25 finalist in The Best Job in the World competition: https:// bestjobs.australia.com/. Hason is the only finalist residing in the Greater Los Angeles area. The next phase of the contest, which ends May 7 (PST), is for the finalists to generate an off the charts social media campaign. Then they have the potential to move on to the next round before the final selections. Hason is vying for the Wildlife Caretaker position located in South Australia for a 6 month contract worth $100,000! “My passion in life is ocean conservation, environmental education and promoting sustainable living,” said Hason who graduated from CSU Monterey Bay with a degree in Marine and Coastal Ecology. “I want to promote a good role model for women in the science field to never give up and follow their dreams.” This passionate California native has logged in thousands of hours volunteering with animals such as sea otters, sea lions, river otters, sharks, octopus, tuna, and beluga whales among others. She has also volunteered at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Long Beach Aquarium and on

Coastal Clean Up Days. “To help my chances of making the Top 3, I need to get as many nonmonetary endorsements as possible from friends and family,” continued Hason. “It could be simply a Tweet, a Facebook posting or a picture of someone holding a sign that reads “Chanel for Wildlife Caretaker” or “Australia, Pick Chanel.” Hason is also reaching out to celebrities and prominent people in the community to endorse her cam-

paign by writing a letter of support addressed to the Tourism Australia board. She gained support this week from a local law enforcement Seargent of the South Pasadena Police Department, the Executive Director of her local YMCA, the CEO of all Southern California YMCA’s, and even a well-known Los Angeles news reporter.

Big dreams come true for veterans, thanks to Arcadia man Charles James Rouchka of Arcadia will be honored as a member of the prestigious Legacy Society of the San Gabriel Habitat for Humanity on May 19 at the Small Bites for Big Dreams benefit from 4-8 p.m. at the University Club, 175 N. Oakland, Pasadena. SGV Habitat is honoring Uncle Charlie, as they fondly call him, because his legacy gift helps Habitat’s bungalow-court project on the former Desiderio Army Reserve Center on the Arroyo Seco become a reality. Three of the nine single-family homes in the Desiderio Homes project are designated for qualifying veterans, thanks to Uncle Charlie. A scrappy, self-made man who served his country in the Navy during World War II, he dreamed of helping other vets with grit and determination to improve their lives. He didn’t, however, dream he could help not one, but three veterans own homes. Nor could he know those homes would be in the shadow of the famed Colorado Street Bridge and snuggled next to the edge of a broad park on the Arroyo, which will be developed by the city of Pasadena. To realize the larger dream, took a little provi-

dence. Rouchka never had any children, but two of his nephews and their wives knew his dream. They learned well as they handled his final illness, his financial affairs and served as trustees of his estate. They just weren’t sure how to fulfill that dream. Enter Aaron Heinrichs. The driver of a Habitat ReStore truck, he met them and fell to talking with them when he came to Rouchka’s Arcadia house to pick up furniture for the ReStore, which also sells recycled building materials, fixtures and the like. They clicked. The dream clicked. Thus the kid from Sedalia, MO, who saw the world in the Navy, retiring as a chief petty officer, and who came home to build a life and work 20 years as a steam engineer at Pasadena City College is getting his wish: The sale of the home he bought in Arcadia will provide homes for veterans who sacrificed for their country. “Not only do the most vulnerable and deserving veterans benefit,” said one of Rouchka’s nieces-in-law, “but so many other lives are touched and improved along the way. We are so happy to share the joy of Uncle Charlie’s dream.”

A nephew and his wife will be on hand at the event May 19 to accept the honors for Uncle Charlie, who died in 2009 at the age of 88. Meanwhile, Uncle Charlie is accumulating a larger and larger family. It will be a family affair when construction begins on the Desiderio Homes next year. Rouchka’s nephews and their wives will be there to lend a hand along with scores of other volunteers. Of course the future homeowners and their families will be there to invest their own “sweat equity” in addition to their mortgage, which Habitat provides interest-free. “These extraordinary donors have become part of the San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity family,” Sonja Yates, executive director of SGV Habitat, commented. “That’s what Habitat is about, bringing people together to build homes that will improve lives and communities.” Tickets for the May 19th Desiderio fundraising event that will honor Rouchka are $60 in advance, $65 at the door. Tickets are available online at www/sgvhabitat. org or by calling Elizabeth Ramirez at 626-387-6899.

The Gamble House celebrates Celtic roots at the Gamble House Sunday - June 2, 2013, 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. The Gamble House celebrates the Celtic roots of the Gamble family with an afternoon of Celtic festivities including a performance with Jamie Laval, one of the premier Celtic violinists on the international music scene today, musical entertainment from the Pasadena Scottish Pipes & Drums, Highland dancing, a Celtic marketplace, food and beverages, fun and games, complimentary Celtic food tastings, local brewers and craft beer tastings, and tours of The Gamble House on Sunday, June 2, 2013 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. on the grounds of the iconic Gamble House located at 4 Westmoreland Place, Pasadena, CA 91103, to celebrate the Celtic Roots of the Gamble family. The Gamble House is an outstanding example of American Arts and Crafts style architecture. The

house and furnishings were designed by Charles and Henry Greene in 1908 for David and Mary Gamble of the Procter & Gamble Company. The house, a National Historic Landmark, is owned by the City of Pasadena and operated by the University of Southern California and is open for public tours. Descended from Scottish and Irish ancestors, David Berry Gamble was a secondgeneration member of the Procter & Gamble Company in Cincinnati, and had retired from active work in 1895. With his wife, Mary Huggins Gamble, they began to spend winters in Pasadena, residing in the area’s resort hotels. By 1907, the couple had decided to build a permanent home in Pasadena. In June of that year, they bought a lot on the short, private street, Westmoreland Place, passing up the more fashionable addresses

on Orange Grove, known at that time as “Millionaires’ Row.” The house remained in the Gamble family until 1966, when it was deeded to the city of Pasadena in a joint agreement with the University of Southern California School of Architecture. General admission: $50.00 - includes entertainment, touring of The Gamble House, and food & drink "tastings" (craft brews for those over 21, artisan sodas for the younger set); VIP Tickets: $75.00 - includes the above, plus preferred parking, a meal selection, two pints of craft brew, and a special look at areas of The Gamble House not open to general admission; Kids 12 and under (accompanied): $25 - includes general admission privileges; Family of Four (two kids 12 and under): $125; VIP Family of Four: $225

State schools chief establishes new areas for recognizing exemplary schools State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson today recognized 19 public schools, which are also 2013 Distinguished Schools, with two new state Exemplary Program Awards for their successful and innovative efforts to promote either the arts or physical activity and nutrition. “If we want our students to succeed inside and outside the classroom, they need an education that takes the ‘whole child’ into account,” Torlakson said. “Encouraging creativity and good nutrition and physical activity are just some of the ways these schools are working to accomplish exactly that.” The schools are the first to be selected for the two new exemplary program awards that reflect Torlakson’s goals outlined in his Blueprint for Great Schools report, which provides vision and direction for California’s education system. The Exemplary Arts Program Award reflects Torlakson’s commitment to the arts and creative education as essential components of a high-quality comprehensive education. This program recognizes schools that, in addition to high academic achievement indicated by

their Distinguished School qualifications, have committed time and resources to broad-based arts education programs that strengthen students’ creativity and encourage their personal interests. Schools selected for the Exemplary Arts distinction have demonstrated school and community support for standards-based arts programs across multiple disciplines. These programs have made a significant impact on school culture and academic success. This award is directly related to the California Department of Education’s involvement in CREATE CA, a statewide coalition of agencies and organizations working to further arts education in California. The Physical Activity and Nutrition Exemplary Program Award recognizes schools that are making significant strides in their school environment related to physical activity and nutri-

tion. Active and well-nourished students demonstrate improved attendance and greater academic achievement. A healthy school environment provides clear and consistent health messages, accurate health and nutrition information and opportunities for increased physical activity. The goals of Torlakson’s Team California for Healthy Kids initiative are increasing access to fresh fruits and vegetables; increasing access to fresh, free drinking water; and increasing moderate to vigorous physical activity. A third program, the exemplary Career Technical Education Program, has been ongoing, and the award winners were announced last month when the 2013 Distinguished Schools were named. Elementary and secondary schools are recognized in alternate years, and this year middle and high schools were acknowledged.

YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by YUNG TAK OH, A SINGLE MAN, dated 10/14/2005 and recorded 10/21/2005, as Instrument No. 05 2540974, in Book N/A, Page N/A, of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Los Angeles County, State of California, will sell on 05/23/2013 at 9:00AM, Doubletree Hotel Los AngelesNorwalk, 13111 Sycamore Drive, Norwalk, CA 90650, Vineyard Ballroom at public auction, to the highest bidder for cash or check as described below, payable in full at time of sale, all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 588 WEST HUNTINGTON DRIVE UNIT D, ARCADIA, CA, 91007. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $367,440.06. 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. Said sale will be made, in an ‘’AS IS’’ condition, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Deed of Trust, advances thereunder, with interest as provided, and the unpaid principal of the Note secured by said Deed of Trust with interest thereon as provided in said Note, plus fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. 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 TS No. 11-0040463. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

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 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 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. 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 714-730-2727 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-11-433994-CL . Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale.
