Los Angeles 1943 landmark Twohey’s Restaurant in resident Alhambra kicks off 70th anniversary celebration sentenced to 88 months imprisonment

Monterey Park Police arrest alleged child predator

Andrea Lorraine Avery, 46, of Los Angeles was sentenced to 88 months’ imprisonment, three years’ supervised release and ordered to pay $2,883,401.62 in restitution. In May 2011, six defendants were charged by a federal grand jury in connection with the scheme. In addition to Andrea Avery, Kirkland Charles, William Earl Gordon, Annita Hawes, and James Arthur Booker have already been sentenced. The remaining defendant, Bill James Releford, is scheduled to be sentenced in June 2013. According to the evidence presented at trial, Avery and her co-defendants operated a scheme to defraud financial institutions by using stolen identities of people with good credit scores to establish business lines of credit and then used the money for personal expenses. Avery and her associates carried out the fraud by obtaining stolen personal identifying informa-

Monterey Park Police Investigators arrested a 25 year old male who allegedly traveled to Monterey Park for the purpose of engaging in a lewd act with a minor. Suspect Dwight Naulton Bryan, 25, of Los Angeles, was booked at Monterey Park City Jail on Saturday, May 11, 2013. He was arrested by detectives when he arrived at a city park where he arranged to meet with the victim. Investigators believe that the suspect met the victim by using Internet social networking websites and texting. Due to the suspect’s use of the Internet as a method for luring victims, it is unknown if there are additional children who may be victims of this individual. Anyone with additional information about this suspect is encouraged to contact the Monterey Park Police Department at 626-307-1236. The arrest of Mr. Bryan is the most recent in a series of several similar cases that have been reported to the

Mike Gatto’s bill to help open more dog parks passes assembly local government committee Assemblyman Mike Gatto’s (D-Los Angeles) bill to help local governments create dog parks for their residents passed the Assembly Local Government Committee on Wednesday with a unanimous, bipartisan vote of 8-0. The idea for the bill came from Laura Friedman, a Glendale City Councilmember, who expressed to Gatto that cities would open more dog parks, but for the liability concerns. “I approached Assemblyman Gatto in the fall about how to help the City of Glendale afford a dog park for our residents,” said Friedman. “One of the biggest issues has always been protecting the city from liability concerns, I am glad to see Mr. Gatto tackling this problem for Glendale and other cities.” Gatto’s AB 265 addresses uncertainty that cities and counties face when operating dog parks by limiting liability and protects them from litigants who claim, for example, that they were unaware of the potential dangers (i.e., dog bites) that can occur at such parks. While some laws and legal rulings already limit the liability of cities and counties with regards to parks and public spaces, such limitations have never been codified with specific regard to dog parks, causing many local governments to pass on the parks until the law, and their potential financial liability, is more certain.

Burbank City Councilman Jess Talamantes explained the importance of providing certainty for decision makers. “As a Councilman, I must be responsible with the city’s public finances and ensure that Burbank is protected from liability. Assemblyman Gatto’s bill provides greater certainty that Burbank’s potential future investment in a dog park will not come back to bite us.” AB 265’s Republican Co-author, Assemblyman Brian Maienschein (RSan Diego), who served for eight years on the San Diego City Council, expressed similar sentiments, saying “this bill would have made my life significantly easier when I was on the San Diego City Council and trying to site a dog park.” “Dog parks help build safer and stronger communities by providing a public space for neighbors to interact while training and socializing their dogs,” said Assemblyman Gatto. “We should not allow liability concerns to be a major barrier to creating these valuable spaces, especially in small- and medium-sized cities that cannot afford to self-insure.” Jennifer Fearing of The Humane Society of the United States echoed the social importance of dog parks, especially for animal lovers with physical ailments. “Dog parks enable senior citizens and people with disabilities, who cannot always walk

The Memorial Torch Relay Run was established in 1976 to honor the memory of the brave and dedicated peace officers in Los Angeles County who sacrificed their lives in the performance of their duties. The run, which con¬sists of 56 legs of varying distance, began its non-stop journey from the Sherman Block Sheriff’s Headquarters building and traveled 339 miles. The Memorial Torch passed each of the mainland Sheriff’s stations over the course of three days. Nearly 2,000 runners participated in the relay. This year’s Memorial Torch Relay Run honored Deputy Constable Charles De Moranville, Deputy Harry S. Guard and Deputy Emma Benson of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and Chief Henry P. Tracy of the Pomona Police Department, all of whom were killed in the line of duty between 1909 and 1919. The run began on Friday, May 17, 2013, at 9 a.m. and concluded on Sunday, May 19 at Altadena Sheriff’s Station. -Photo by Terry Miller

their dogs, a safe alternative,” said Fearing. “The Humane Society is glad for an opportunity to support a bill with the noble goal of nurturing the humananimal bond.” There is precedent for the state stepping in to limit liability for the public good, especially for the use of public resources that come with some inherent danger. In 1997, the state imposed limited liability under certain circumstances for cities that open skate parks. State lawmakers reasoned that more recreation opportunities were needed, but that skateboarding is inherently dangerous, and should be done at the users’ risk and without massive liability for cities and their taxpayers. “By offering our communities more certainty on this issue, I believe we can help make more dogs parks available in our neighborhoods, improving the lives of dog lovers and our canine companions,” said Gatto.

Temple City High students allege teacher bullying in aquatics program By Terry Miller Students of the Temple City High School aquatics program have met twice recently with administration officials at Temple City High School to air concerns about their coach , Linda Simons. Inappropriate actions such as “throwing balls at students heads, use of expletives and knowingly allowing bullying to exist on the team(s)..are just some of the many allegations students are making about one teacher at the High School. “With Rutgers heavy on the minds of students, we thought her (Simons) fate was sealed, but the good old boy system keeps coach in her position with just a verbal warning,” a senior said who is one of several students who has helped bring the allegations to the media’s attention. Rutgers former basketball coach Mike Rice, was fired in April after video footage of the fiery coach manhandling and shouting profanities as well as gay slurs at players during practices was aired nationally. While perhaps not on the same scale as the Rutgers incidents, some Temple City high students are nonetheless deeply concerned, enough so to bring this matter to the attention of the administration and public. The students allege that Linda Simons has used slurs such as “ Moron and Idiot” repeatedly and also referring to one student by his grade point average and not his name and saying things like, “ Hey….4.1, why are you so stupid in the pool?” Our source says Simons routinely gets angry, and “kicks things” in addition to throwing a large

safety cone at a student as well as “throwing balls directly at students.” When these students voiced their concerns about safety on the pool deck May 3, Principal Mary Jo King said “It will probably take a while before that happens.” A safe environment is what the students are addressing. The students have this and other details documented. Administration officials have purportedly defended the coach then told swimmers we “must give the program positive PR”. The allusion being that the school wants to handle this internally without any publicity, a TCHS student told Beacon Media. The student with whom we spoke at length earlier this week told us: “My parents are aware of what I’m doing. I have a total tape of over 1 hour (of the meetings) but I wouldn’t want to share it all. At the end Mr. Van De Veere said what worries him the most about this is that our perception of coach is going to cause 8th graders not want to swim.” “We need exposure for the safety of the children, who are not safe at

this time. I don’t know any other teenagers writing to newspapers and I think it speaks to the severity and urgency of the matter,” the students told us Monday. An audio tape obtained by Beacon Media contains a sequence at one of the two meetings students arranged to discuss their concerns. We contacted Mary Jo Fosselman King, Principal at Temple City High School, for comment on the students’ allegations. “I assure you that we are thoroughly investigating and following up on all allegations regarding Mrs. Simons. As this is a personnel issue, I will not comment on specifics in regards to our employee or students, but I am deeply saddened that our students have contacted you.” Mary Jo King said in an email on Tuesday morning. WE attempted to contact Linda Simons and the Superintendent of TUSD Chelsea Kang-Smith but our calls and emails were not immediately returned. . We also contacted a member of the School Board who was unaware of the accusations or meetings held.

tion, including dates of birth, Social Security numbers, credit profiles, and driver’s license numbers, to complete fraudulent applications for business lines of credit to various banks. Once the applications were approved by the banks, funds were deposited into corporate bank accounts that were linked to the credit lines, usually in the amount of $100,000 each. The defendants liquidated the credit lines by issuing checks payable to the defen-

dants and their companies, often for their personal use. Over the course of the scheme, Avery operated numerous shell companies, directly receiving 33 checks totaling approximately $225,000. As evidenced at trial, Avery also used others involved in the scheme to cash checks for her and provided her with the profits. The evidence also demonstrated that she demanded that she receive approximately 15 to 20 percent from each

fraudulent credit line. At trial, Avery was found to be the mastermind who directed and controlled the entire fraud scheme that netted her and her coschemers millions of dollars. Between 1998 and 2005, Avery directed others in the opening and draining of dozens of different credit lines. Based upon the 76 lines of credit presented at trial, the fraud resulted in a total actual loss of approximately $2,883,401.62.

Relaxing at the Hyatt on the American Riviera By Greg Aragon Santa Barbara is often called the American Riviera. With its wonderful beaches, perfect weather and iconic mission-styled architecture, it is easy to see why. And with resorts like the historic Hyatt Santa Barbara encapsulating this distinctive Californian charm, it is also easy to see why a friend and I had such a great time on a recent visit. Our getaway began when we checked into the 171-room Hyatt, which was originally built in 1931 and recently underwent a multimillion renovation. We then took an elevator to our comfortable 2nd-floor suite overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Boasting two queen beds and a 37” flat screen TV, the spacious 300-sq-ft room also came with a refrigerator, a shower-tub combo with Portico spa amenities, and was replete with bright decor and original artwork to enhance the Santa Barbara mood. The room was also highlighted by a step-out balcony, overlooking the pool

and the beach directly across the street. From this perch, we relaxed on deck chairs, sipped Bloody Mary’s, and watched boats bob in the sunset. When not on the balcony, we lounged by the pool and soaked in the Jacuzzi, or walked across the street to the beach. In fact, during our February visit, the weather was so nice that we actually jumped in the ocean and body surfed. After the swim w walked back to the Hyatt and sat by the big outdoor fireplace next to the pool. While warming-up, we admired the rocky outline of Anacapa Island, clearly visible a few miles offshore. For dinner, we discovered the Hyatt’s signature restaurant, Bistro Eleven Eleven, located on the first floor, facing the beach. The restaurant’s décor mixes mission-styled arches, lowhanging beams and intricate chandeliers with herringbone vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and bamboo chairs, to create an inviting and interesting atmosphere. The bistro serves contemporary American cuisine with California flair. “Modern and comfortable, our res-

taurant blends the relaxation of California cuisine with an ocean view,” says the hotel. Our meal began with Pacific crab cakes with avocado relish, plantain chips and microgreens; chicken tortilla soup with avocado and pico de gallo; and a crispy Caesar salad with anchovies and parmesan cheese. For the main course I had an incredible plate of grilled day boat

to the Santa Barbara Pier, which was alive with people and festivities. The Hyatt also boasts a full-service spa, a stateof-the-art fitness center, a 24-hour business center, and 10,000 sq-ft of meeting / event space with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean or Santa Ynez Mountains. The property is a walking distance to State St (the

city’s Downtown area), a few minutes’ drive from Santa Barbara airport, and 40 minutes from Santa Ynez Wine Country Hyatt Santa Barbara is located at 1111 East Cabrillo Blvd, Santa Barbara, 93103. For more information and reservations, call (805) 882-1234 or visit: www.santabarbara.hyatt. com.

Labor Chair Hernández’ statement on Governor’s May revision budget Assembly member Roger Hernandez released the following statement after Governor Brown released his May Revision of the 2013-14 state budget: “California’s economy has been on the path to recovery for some time now, however, we must proceed cautiously as we move towards a sound budget and continue to monitor the effects from

the federal sequester, which are still unclear as to the impact to this state. Governor Brown shared plans to help put Californian’s back to work through the revamping of the state’s enterprise zone and hiring credit programs. I welcome his enthusiasm to work collectively to find a budget that addresses all the needs of Californians. By providing an additional

$48 million in CalWORKs job training and subsidized employment opportunities, we are moving towards a road where individuals can provide for their families. In addition, as Chair of the Committee of Labor and Employment, I look forward in working with Governor Brown and my colleagues to ensure he has the support of the Legislature.”

Monterey Park prescription drug take-back day results in large quantities of medication get your votes ready!

On Saturday, April 27, Monterey Park Police partnered with Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Agents in an effort to collect unused prescription drugs from community members as part of the sixth National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. This event is held twice a year, with the mission to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the public about the potential for abuse of these medications. The event is staffed by Monterey Park Police

Department Reserve Police Officers, who volunteer their time to support the operations of the police department in a variety of assignments. In Monterey Park, approximately 132 pounds of prescription drugs were collected. The results of this effort in Southern California were extremely successful. 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 of

unused, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs. More than 100 state and local law enforcement agencies participated in this event. Nationally, a total of 371 tons of prescription medication was collected during the one-day event. When added to the collections from the five previous Take-Back day events, more than 1,409 tons of prescription medications have been removed from circulation nationwide. This event will take place again in late September or early October, 2013.

Standard and poor’s affirms City of Glendale “AAA” rating On May 7, 2013, the City of Glendale received notification that Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services affirmed the City’s credit worthiness with a “AAA” rating. The Rationale in the report highlighted: • Diverse and expanding local economic base, and full participation in the Los Angeles area economy; • History of very strong levels of unreserved fund balance levels; • Strong financial performance bolstered by good financial manage-

ment practices; • Very low debt levels at 1.2% of assessed valuation (AV). It was also supported by the fact that the City has no general obligation (GO) debt. The report also received a favorable Outlook indicating that the City of Glendale was stable and it reflects Standard and Poor’s anticipation that the City’s financial performance will likely remain strong, “…based on a diverse and broad local economy as well as sound

financial management policies and practices.” “Standard & Poor’s rating of AAA for the City of Glendale General Fund’s creditworthiness is a reflection of the sound financial fundamentals adhered to by the City Council,” said Glendale City Manager Scott Ochoa. “Little longterm debt, sufficient cash reserves, a lean organization and a promising future of economic development opportunities afford Glendale the promise of being viewed as a premiere municipality in LA County.”

Fatal hit and run in Arcadia Continued from page 1

responsible for killing his 32- year old son Kenneth on May 7 in a hit and run accident. I’d like to make a plea to the driver himself; he or she has had a few days to think this over and I think the preferred thing is that they come into the police station and discuss this, whatever went on there,” Brian Doherty said. “They won’t be able to go forward in life without doing that ... If someone is out there and knows something just think if it was your brother or your son? The Arcadia Police Department continues to ask the community for any information in locating the suspect and suspect vehicle who struck Kenneth Doherty along Foothill Boulevard in Arcadia, on Tuesday, May 7, 2013, shortly before 8:00 p.m. “Someone knows something…” was the sentiment echoed at the press conference and “we need anyone who knows something about this crime to come forward,” said Detective Mike Hale APD. Witnesses’ accounts

say both the suspect vehicle and the motorcyclist had been driving erratically and at high speeds on the eastbound 210 Freeway before they both exited at Baldwin Avenue. According to those accounts, the suspect and victim appeared to be yelling at each other, possibly engaged in an argument or road rage incident. The witness lost sight of the suspect vehicle and motorcyclist as they turned and drove east on Foothill Boulevard at a high rate of speed. A witness came upon the downed motorcyclist a short time later. A passenger-side mirror was located at the scene, broken off from the suspect’s vehicle. The suspect vehicle appears to be a 2002 to 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer with tinted windows. Based on the unique color and parts recovered at the scene, the vehicle is most likely a 2005 or 2006 Lancer Evolution or “Evo”. Surveillance video from the 76 gas station shows the suspect vehicle continuing eastbound on Foothill Boulevard from Santa Anita Avenue, shortly after the

collision. However the license plate was unreadable. While investigators have reached out to local dealerships and online Mitsubishi communities, detectives believe that someone in the community may have additional information on the suspect and suspect vehicle. Chief investigator on the case is Detective Mike Hale who reiterated what Brian Doherty said at the press conference and asks the suspect to contact the police dept. as soon as possible. “It basically comes down to doing the right thing,” Hale said. “We’re talking about the loss of a life here. I can tell you first hand I’ve seen the devastation to the family. This person was a father, a brother, a son.” The Arcadia Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect driver and in locating the suspect vehicle in this tragic, fatal collision. Anyone with information is asked to call the Arcadia Police Department at

626-574-5150. You can also submit crime tips and information via text, phone, or web to LA Regional Crime Stoppers, 800-222TIPS (8477). Please reference case #13-2136. Arcadia Police issued a press release saying “our thoughts and condolences remain with the victim, Kenneth Doherty, 32-yearsold, of Los Angeles, and his family. Kenneth died as a result of injuries sustained in the collision.

Brian Doherty speaks at an emotional press conference in Arcadia Tuesday afternoon. With his wife, Cindy at his side and other family member includ¬ing Jennifer Ruiz (Kenneth’s widow), the family of hit and run victim Kenneth Doherty is pleading for the public’s help in locating the person(s) respon¬sible for the death of their son May 7.

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?

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

“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.

able to continue to collect usage data.

Compliance through great patient care

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.

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

Interested in learning more? www.classicsleepcare.com

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

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.

Not currently screening for Sleep Apnea?

If you are not currently screening your patients for sleep apnea and would like to learn more about how we can help you, please call.

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.
