Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27) released the following statement after visiting the detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba: “After seeing Guantanamo firsthand, I am more convinced than ever that we must close the detention center. Its very existence is a departure from the values the American people have long held. Our government has determined that half of the detainees can be transferred, yet they remain under lock and key. Meanwhile, their lives have been reduced to a caged existence. Even the little recreation area they have is surrounded by concrete walls two-stories high and bound with barbed wire. This situation has become so bleak that over 100 detainees are on hunger strike, many of whom are now being force

Stolen items were a Playstation 3, 3 Playstation remote controls, 5 Playstation games, and $200 in U.S. currency . There were no witnesses. The apprehension of those responsible for these crimes is a major priority of the City of Duarte and the Sheriff's Department. Three significant arrests were made, in November, December, and in February in connection with some of the Duarte burglaries. There are other criminals at work targeting Duarte neighborhoods.

fore you leave the house or go to bed. -Use motion detector lights outside. -Don't allow daily deliveries of mail, newspaper or flyers to build up while you are away. Arrange for the post office to hold your mail, or a friend or neighbor to collect them regularly. -Push-button locks on doorknobs are easy for burglars to open. Install deadbolt locks on all your outside doors. -Keep your yard clean and bushes and trees trimmed. Do not give burglars a place to hide. -If you have an alarm system, use it, even if you leave for a short period of time. -If you do not have an alarm system buy signs that say you have an alarm and place them around your home.

is required to investigate. By the same token, it is equally unacceptable for students or parents to publically defame one another or start a cyber-bullying campaign. The statistics are staggering: 1. Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year. 2. 1 in 4 teachers see nothing wrong with bullying and will only intervene 4 percent of the time. 3. A p p r o x i m a t e l y 160,000 teens skip school every day because of bullying. 4. 1 in 7 students in grades K-12 is either a bully or a victim of bullying. 5. 56 percent of students have personally witnessed some type of bullying at school. 6. Over two-thirds of students believe that schools respond poorly to bullying, with a high percentage of students believing that adult help is infrequent and ineffective. 7. 71 percent of students report incidents of bullying as a problem at their school. 8. 90 percent of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying. 9. 1 out 10 students drop out of school because of repeated bullying. 10. Harassment and bullying have been linked to 75 percent of schoolshooting incidents. 11. Physical bullying increases in elementary school, peaks in middle school and declines in high school. Verbal abuse, on the other hand, remains constant.

Summertime is Cal Phil time—and if it’s Cal Phil, it is guaranteed to be more than a concert, it’s an unforgettable experience. Cal Phil's revered Maestro Victor Vener and his world class orchestra are tuning up for another highly-anticipated season of top tier live music and original programs, every other Saturday evening, beginning June 29, 2013, at Santa Anita Race Track. The 2013 summer season kicks off with Beatles, Beethoven & Beach Boys. Always a fan favorite, The Fab Four—The Ultimate Tribute, join the party as the evening’s special guest, performing an array of Beatles hits. With uncanny, note-for-note live renditions of Beatles’ songs, The Fab Four make you think you are watching the real thing, complete with multiple costume changes that represent various eras of the Beatles ever-changing career. Cal Phil keeps the music and memories soaring on opening night with powerful performances of Beach Boys classics including Good Vibrations, I Get Around and California Girls, as well as

an unforgettable interpretation of Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony. Andrew Lloyd Webber Meets Puccini for the season's second concert, Saturday July 13, 2013. Singers Lori Stinson, Christopher Campbell and Cedric Berry, along with the Cal Phil Chorale, who are prepared by Chorus Maestra Marya Basarba, lend their impeccable voices to such acclaimed musical masterpieces as Phantom of the Opera, La Boheme, Evita, Sunset Blvd. and Tosca. as well as Nessun Dorma from Turandot. On Saturday July 27, 2013, Cal Phil concert-goers will want to break out their best dancing shoes for Dance Fever. Dancing With The Stars sensation Derek Hough, fresh off the heels of his most recent Mirror Ball Trophy victory, takes center stage with the orchestra during a fun-fueled line-up of songs including tributes to Elvis, Abba and Michael Jackson. More surprises are on tap for the don't-miss program that also includes Dance of the Seven Veils, Romeo andJuliet, Hava Nagila and Ritual Fire Dance.

Rodgers, Hammerstein and Gershwin are on the bill for Saturday August 10, 2013. The acclaimed orchestra is joined by in-demand special guests, sensational Broadway stars Kim Huber and James Barbour and mesmerizing pianist Bryan Pezzone. The spectacular San Gabriel Mountains will come alive with the sound of sensational music including highlights from such classics as Oklahoma!, Sound Of Music, South Pacific and Carousel, as well as performances of Gershwin's Rhapsody In Blue and An American in Paris. Cal Phil delivers an incomparable season finale with Les Miz and Bernstein on Saturday August 24, 2013. Singers Randal Keith and Melissa Lyons, stars of Les Misérables on Broadway and the National Tour, join Cal Phil and the Cal Phil Chorale in an enthralling season finale that features powerful performances from selections of Les Miz and Candide as well as On The Town and Symphonic Dances from West Side Story. “We are excited about our 17th season of Cal Phil’s Festival on the Green,” said Vener. “What a fantastic partnership we have—and a summer of original programming with phenomenal special guests to match! Santa Anita Race Track is Southern California’s premiere outdoor concert venue and we look forward to sharing the unique experience that our partnership affords with old and new fans for many many years to come.” Gates open at 5:30pm for pre-concert dining, plus live jazz, a host of preconcert family friendly ac-

tivities and gourmet dining options including a full bar. Concerts begin at 7:30pm.

Governor Brown joins global scientists to call for action on climate change Warning that Earth is rapidly approaching a tipping point at which human impacts are causing alarming levels of harm to our planet, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today joined more than 500 world-renowned researchers and scientists to release a groundbreaking call to action on climate change and other global threats to all humanity. “This is not just about science, this is about activism,” said Governor Brown. “This is an important challenge, cause and undertaking. We can do it, but we have to do a lot more than we're doing now.” Governor Brown and the scientists released the call to action at the fourth annual Water, Energy and Smart Technology Summit and Showcase at NASA Ames Research Center. The 20-page consensus statement, produced at the Governor’s urging and signed by more than 500 concerned scientists, translates key scientific findings from disparate fields into one unified message for poli-

cymakers, industry and the general public. This statement aims to improve the nexus between scientific research and political action on climate change. The call to action identifies five key threats to the habitable environment that policymakers must address now to avoid the degradation of humanity’s relative health and prosperity along with broad solutions to the challenges outlined: Climate change – Forecasts show that Earth will be hotter than the human species has ever experienced by the year 2070. Extinctions – At the current rate of species extinction, the world will see the loss of 75 percent of vertebrate species within as little as three centuries. Loss of ecosystems – As of 2012, more than 40 percent of Earth’s ice-free lands have been changed by human activity, causing species extinction and other impacts to Earth’s biodiversity. Pollution – Increasing levels of toxic substances in the environment put over

100 million people at direct risk of health problems. Population growth and consumption – Human population growth contributes to global environmental disruption by adding greenhouse gases and toxic pollutants to the environment and altering ecosystems. The full text of the statement and the list of the over 500 scientists who signed the document are available on the Millennium Alliance for Humanity and the Biosphere website. The signatories hail from 44 countries and include two Nobel laureates, 33 members of the U.S. National Academy of the Sciences and members of international scientific academies. The statement’s lead writer is Anthony Barnosky, University of California, Berkeley, professor of integrative biology. Barnosky was the lead author of a scientific paper in 2012 that warned Earth is dangerously close to a tipping point at which climate change is fundamentally altering the biological make-up of the planet.

Bear cub has mid afternoon snack in Duarte home 911 operator calms scared resident

Temple Station received a 9-1-1 call from a female reporting that a bear cub entered her residential window and was seen on the kitchen counter and helped himself to a late afternoon snack. The resident ran to a second floor bathroom and locked the door. Several units responded to the call, along with a City of Duarte animal control officer. A deputy and the animal control officer entered the house and found the bear on the kitchen counter eating some food. They left the door open and made noises to scare the bear. The bear ran out via the front door and into

the surrounding forest area. The bear was estimated to have been approximately 1 year old. The Department

of Fish and Wildlife was notified of the incident. To hear the 9-1-1 tape see our websites.

Bettie Mae Scott Continued from page 1

attended Pasadena Junior College. She trained with the WASP in Sweetwater, Texas as a ferry and test pilot. She was killed in Waco, Texas shortly after take-off testing a "newly-repaired" BT13 to see if it was airworthy for a male pilot. She died two weeks before her 23rd birthday. She was engaged to be married later that month. Her coffin was sent home in a cheap pine box, and she received no military funeral as WASP were not “officially recognized” by the military at that time - not until 1977. However, the city of Monrovia businesses shut down the day of her funeral, and the Police Department (her father was Chief) and the Fire Department were the pallbearers and honorary pallbearers. She rests now at Live Oak Cemetery. The WASP organization, WINGTIP-To-WINGTIP Association has been accepted by the Tournament of Roses to have a float in the 2014. They need all the help financially they can get as well as much recognition to make this float possible. The purpose of having a float is to pay tribute to the WASP and perpetuate the legacy and story of the WASP for future generations--like the Tuskegee Airmen who had a float a few years ago. Bettie Mae's story came to light when Pasadena City College graphic artist Christina Rose found out about her amazing history, dedication and ultimate sacrifice. In 2000, PCC celebrated its 75th anniversary. Bettie

was selected to be one of their 75 most distinguished alumni (along with Jackie Robinson) and was honored at an impressive awards dinner at the Civic Auditorium. On March 10, 2010 Bettie would have been honored at a Congressional Medal ceremony in Washington, DC, where all WASP were presented gold medals for their service. Hopefully, her surviving relatives received hers posthumously. "Sent home in a cheap pine box" was featured in the text of the bill sent to Congress for approval for the Gold Medal. Bettie Mae Scott was a sort of ‘poster child’ for the cause, according to Christina Rose. Thirty-eight young women gave their lives in military service to the United States of America in a quasi-secret program in World War II, thirty eight deaths that received no particular honors or remembrance until March 9, 2010 when a "missing man" formation of jet fighters flew over the Air Force Memorial in Washington DC, the day before their colleagues, the Women Air force Service Pilots received the Congressional Gold Medal in recognition of their invaluable role in winning that terrible war. “The thirty eight died in the normal way that so many perish in times of conflict, not as a direct result of enemy fire, but in various training and service accidents, engine failures, one taking off and collided with landing plane that had not been cleared by the tower, another burning in

a cockpit due to a possibly faulty maintenance repair, and yet another roaring off into the skies over LA with her P-51, never to be seen or heard of again . . . . The normal tragedies of military service . . . young lives cut short because of that strong desire to find a way to serve a higher calling than one's own personal interest, one's nation, a nation that one feels"worth the sacrifice" that may be made, like Bettie Mae Scott (http://fifinella.com/bettiescott. htm) a few weeks before her 23rd birthday.” Thirty-eight who stand for and represent so many others who served as the WASP and in all the services of our nation, both private and governmental, all who shared, and still share the ideals of those young beautiful women. A Rose of Remembrance before a national audience Jan 2014, remembering the 38 and all the women who served, who serve, and who will serve this nation.

Dorothy's Place

Old Town Monrovia competing against 100 cities nationwide for free facelift

Freedom is not free

By Dorothy Denne In writing this week's column I'm sharing my thoughts along with thoughts expressed in a poem written years ago by Major Kelly Strong called Freedom Is Not Free. I know many of you celebrated Memorial Day last weekend with picnics,

games in the parks, family get-togethers and other fun things. When you did so, I hope you took time to remember its purpose. I hope the flags flying at half-mast gave you pause to question how many men and women have fallen through the years? How many died on foreign soil? How many pilots' planes shot down? How many died at sea? How many mines unseen? How many foxholes and ditches be-

came soldiers graves? When I see a flag drape a coffin carried by brothers in uniform I question how many loved ones' tears? I think of all the children, of mothers, sisters and the wives, of fathers, brothers, sons and husbands--all with interrupted lives. The bugler plays Taps and I know it means "Amen". So many have died for you and me. No, my friends, freedom is not free.

Old Town Monrovia is the only Southern California “Main Street” competing for a facelift – including paint for façades, porches, railings, shutters and other exterior building trims – against 100 cities across the country. On Wednesday, Benjamin Moore, a paint manufacturer and color authority, announced its biggest initiative ever to revitalize communities across North America through the launch of “Main Street Matters,” according to a press release issued by the paint company. The campaign asks consumers around the country to cast their vote online for which 20 Main Streets should be revitalized of the more than 100 North American cities nominated at www.paintwhatmatters. com. Monrovia was selected by the company, though representatives did not indicate why Monrovia was chosen. The other California cities are Martinez, Gilroy and Eureka. Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz said she was very excited to learn about the opportunity – especially when public funds that used to be available to assist with these types of façade improvements have been harder and harder to come by in recent years. “We are very grateful to be included in this program, and are hoping that Monrovians and all Southern California residents will cast their votes for our beloved Old Town,” Mayor Mary Ann Lutz said. Old Town Monrovia is

the symbolic heartbeat of the community, and has proven to be a regional attraction because of its weekly Friday Night Family Festival, beautiful Krikorian Move Theater, and an abundance of quaint stores, eateries and public amenities such as the public library. The effort will be undertaken with the help of multiple partner organizations around the country, including Make It Right, a longtime partner of Benjamin Moore that was founded by actor-philanthropist Brad Pitt. Brad Pitt will be lending his voice in support of the effort that Benjamin Moore is undertaking with Main Street Matters. In addition to partner organizations, this effort will be brought to life with local Benjamin Moore dealers and in conjunction with local municipalities, small businesses and local Chambers of Commerce. The effort will begin this summer and the work on repainting these Main Streets will be completed over the next year. “Our Main Streets are the vital hubs of our communities – and Benjamin Moore and our network of independent dealers have always been integral parts of Main Street,” said David Melançon, Chief Marketing Officer of Benjamin Moore. “This investment we’re making in communities around North America is core to our business and to who we are; Main Streets make us who we are and we’re proud to honor that with this effort.

Benjamin Moore will not only provide the paint and supplies needed for façades, porches, railings, shutters and other exterior building trims, but its color experts will consult on the best choices to enhance the architectural style, regional influences and historic references in each community. Skilled professional painters, many of them members of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America, will be hired, putting another segment of local business to work along with the local Benjamin Moore retailer who will be mixing the paints that are used. The communications portion of “Main Street Matters”, which allows local businesses and community members to tell their stories, includes not only the online component, but also is being supported by an aggressive advertising program. A mix of national and local market TV, radio, online and print ads will hit North America starting in May as part of the company’s overall increase in marketing, which is up 61% compared to the previous year. Voting began at 12:00 a.m. EST on May 16, 2013 and will end at 11:59 p.m. EST on June 30, 2013. Benjamin Moore will post the final list of Main Streets and towns to be repainted on www.paintwhatmatters.com in July. For more information and a list of nominated cities across the U.S. and Canada, please visit www.paintwhatmatters.com.

China’s environmental activist Wu Lihong has been refused a passport by the government of China to go to Los Angeles to accept an award from Visual Artists Guild. Visual Artists Guild is a human rights organization which champions the right of freedom of speech and expression. After Mr. Wu was refused a passport, his wife and daughter applied for a passport but have yet to receive one. The award ceremony is scheduled for this Sunday, May 26, 2013 at Golden Dragon Restaurant in Los Angeles Chinatown. Without giving a rea-

son, the school where Mr. Wu’ daughter is attending changed her dissertation date from May 19 to May 27, the date after Visual Artists Guild’s award ceremony. This change affects not only Mr. Wu’s daughter but all her classmates as well. Mr. Wu has been active for more than two decades about the pollution of Lake Tai, China’s third largest fresh water lake. He was named “Environmental Warrior” by China’s National Peoples Congress in 2005. When Mr. Wu continued his crusade about Lake Tai, he was sentenced to three years in prison on

some trumped up charges in August, 2007. It was also reported in Australian Financial Review that Mr. Wu was offered “compensation” if “ his family did not attend the award ceremony and even suggested they could find a job for his daughter”. This series of attempts to block Mr. Wu family from coming to Los Angeles to accept the award follows China’s government release of a white paper this month stating that “China is working hard to build a beautiful country and earnestly guaranteeing the citizens’ environmental rights and interests.”

El Monte families run, ride and walk More than 90 residents took advantage of the sunny Spring weather to join the City of El Monte at the 2013 Family Fit Run, Ride and Walk event on Saturday, May 11. The event, hosted by the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department in partnership with Bike SGV, was designed to encourage families to get active together at El Monte’s Pioneer Park. The family friendly, non-competitive event was open to all ages and fitness levels. “The City of El Monte

makes it a priority to offer activities like the Run, Ride and Walk event that promote a healthy lifestyle for our families,” said El Monte Mayor Andre Quintero. “We consistently champion policies that improve the health and well-being of our residents, so that as a community, we can fight obesity and other healthrelated problems.” Each participant chose to participate in a healthy activity, including a 5-mile run, a 14-mile local off-street bike ride (ages 8 and over), or a 2.5-mile walk. A bike rodeo

for children under age 8 was hosted by the El Monte Police Officers’ Association.

Community Parent Workshop “Preparing for the tween years" Parents of children ages 8–12 are invited to attend a special parent workshop series starting this Sunday in Arcadia. The goal of the collaborated event is to offer the parents in the community a hands-on tool for them to reach out to their children during their challenging tween years, and build a solid foundation for a strong parent-child bond before the onset of teenage years. Tweens are children emerging out of the cocoon of their parents’ identity to find themselves and their place in a brave new world. Tween years are all about hormones, peer pressure, puberty, confusion, and pushing boundaries to find directions. These are the years when parents need to hold close, but are more likely to “back away” to escape the conflict and tantrums. Truly game changing years; how parents react during this challenging and turbulent time can decide their future

relationship with their child. If you are a parent of children ages 8 to 12, join us to gain an insight on how to navigate the tumultuous waters your child’s tween years. Topics of Discussion: June 2nd Session 1: When, Why and How Tweens Challenge Boundaries Why my sweet child suddenly seems to become moody and difficult? July 7th Session 2: Building a Foundation for the Tween Years to Come Learn the world of the tween and view the challenges they face and present. August 4th Session 3: The Three Phases of Parenting Strategies and tips for parents to help tweens transition from childhood to the teen years smoothly Keynote speaker of the workshop is Ms. Eileen Pisula, certified parenting coach and seasoned educator. Workshop dates: Sun-

days, June 2nd, July 7th, August 4th Time: 2:30 to 4:30pm EFC Arcadia at 225 W. Live Oak Ave., Arcadia Course fee is $15 per workshop, or $35 for the entire series (free for EFCA members) Handouts and light refreshment are included. Childcare is available at $5 by appointment. This Smart Parent Workshop Series is jointly presented by La JaJa Kids parenting website, Learning Nexus Education Center, and EFC Arcadia.

HIV-positive, low income patients to receive free dental care at Pasadena clinic Receiving much needed dental care is no longer similar to pulling teeth as a new dental clinic recently opened in Pasadena for HIV positive low income patients. The Pasadena Public Health Department launched the clinic within the agency’s offices after determining there was a lack of free or low-cost dental care for HIV-positive and low-income clients who lack insurance. Located on North Fair Oaks Avenue the clinic is staffed by 2 dentists, a dental hygienist and

By Emani Payne two assistants who perform the most common dental services including cleanings, filings, extractions, crowns and root canals. “When you look at what’s happening in health care, including the Affordable Care Act, there are holes that are left, and dental care is one of them. We’re trying to create a safety net for those individuals who don’t have one,” Pasadena Public Health Director Eric Walsh said. Lawmakers cut dental

benefits for adults in 2009 amid the state budget crisis meaning some patients haven’t seen a dentist in years. “They come in and we’re basically starting from scratch." said Melanie Washington, the clinic’s director and full-time dentist. According to Walsh officials are seeking additional funds and plan to start treating low-income seniors and others who lack dental insurance by as early as September.

Margaret Lueders celebrates 100 years Long time resident of The Leven Oaks, Assisted Living in Monrovia turned 100 on Sunday, May 26. Margaret Lueders was born in 1913 in Pilger, Nebraska, the fifth of twelve children. She and her husband, Emil moved to Monrovia in 1945. Emil started a plumbing company in Monrovia on Olive Avenue. They built a house on Valle Vista that year for about $2000.00. Margaret and Emil were very involved in The First Baptist Church in Monrovia for many years. Margaret was surrounded by about 100 friends and relatives at her birthday party Sunday. Both her son Emil Jr and Tim were present, as were their wives, Nelda and Joann to celebrate this milestone birthday with Margaret. Margaret was given proclamations and cards from City of Monrovia, Senators Boxer and Fiendstien, Assenblyman Holden, Governor Brown, Supervisor Antonovich and President Obama! Monrovia Councilmembers Tom Adams, Becky

Shevlin and Larry Spicer were in attendance. Lisa Magno, Owner of The Leven Oaks ahared with the party goers, "Margaret Lueders has taught us how to live our life, with a love of God, family and friends. In the twenty years I have known her, she has only been loving and kind, both in her actions and words. She is a role model for all of us!" Margaret was a member of the Gadabout senior group for many years. She thanked all her guests for being in attendance and wished them all as happy of life as she has enjoyed!

Peacocks in Arcadia Continued from page 1

land then known as Rancho Santa Anita for $200,000 and made it his home. He planted acres of fruit trees, grapevines and raised sheep, cattle, hogs and horses. Baldwin really had a soft spot for birds according to historian Sandy Snider: Apparently the best way to get fired from a job on the Baldwin Ranch was to mistreat an animal, especially Peacocks. No one knows the exact number of peafowl Baldwin imported from India, but by the 1880s "there were some 50 of them on the ranch.” Snider says in her book "Arcadia: Where Ranch and City Meet." Some love ‘em and some hate ‘em. Residents such as retired Pasadena Police officer Thomas Burns who lives a block west of the Arboretum is fed up with the peafowl destroying his plants, and littering his yard. Actually he and his wife are fed up and want the city to “do something.” He’s not the only one. Residents in this affluent neighborhood are had it and want the city to “do something” about it.

Scores of streets in Arcadia are “littered” with the peafowl says one neighbor across from the Arboretum. A drive down a residential road confirmed the fact that driving is not only difficult when they cross the road to another garden but the numbers are extraordinary. The Arboretum says the peacocks are not their birds, they’re feral and therefore “ everyone’s birds.” In a manner of speaking. Susan Eubank at the Arboretum Library said a research study conducted three years ago had the count of birds in the Arboretum at 150. But estimates of a much higher number exist, depending on who you talk to. The birds can be seen on rooftops, car tops and in gardens. In the Burns’ home, at any given time the number of birds feeding on his plants is approximately 9. We counted over 200 just in one neighborhood on Tuesday evening. However, there is nothing the city can do - as it is wildlife. Part of the joy of living, so close to nature one

could argue. However, not all residents agree and hope that the city or humane society does something to stop the proliferation and the destruction of peoples’ yards and property. Today, hundreds of colorful peacocks, and the less flamboyant female peahens, roam the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden in Arcadia and surrounding neighborhoods. They are always looking for food. Peafowl may seem an odd choice for a ranch, but they were actually quite handy to have around back then. Not only did they kill snakes and keep the snail population at bay. Arboretum librarian Eubank says the Peacocks also help keep coyotes at bay. The strength of the birds is under-estimated and they are particularly protective of their young. Back then, owning a peacock also was a status symbol. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, it was quite fashionable with the well-todo who had land to put various animals on their property that they found colorful,

attractive or unique. After Baldwin's death in 1909 at age 81, his daughter Anita sold off parcels of the ranch, eventually selling the last 1,300 acres in 1936 to Harry Chandler of the Los Angeles Times. In 1947, the state and the county of Los Angeles jointly purchased 111 acres to create an arboretum around the heart of the old ranch. Later the county purchased additional parcels, bringing the Arboretum's total acreage to today's 127. The City of Arcadia has provided the information below for residents of Arcadia, complete with suggestions for plants that peacocks DON’T like. Native to India, Burma, Java, Ceylon, Malaya and Congo, peafowl are relatives to pheasants. The difference is in the plumage. The term “peafowl” refers to the species with the males called peacocks; the females are called peahens and offRE DU CE of one spring under the age DP RIC year are called peachicks. E Peafowl are usually found in small groups consisting of one male and several females. The male

Peacocks in Arcadia attracts the attention of peahens by fanning its elegant upper tail coverts (the feathers that cover the bird’s tail, not the actual tail) over it’s back. The males tail train will lengthen and get fuller over the first two to three years and will have reached consistent length and quality at five to six years old. The peacock will molt the tail in late summer signifying the end of the breeding season. Peafowl reach breeding age at two years. Peahens usually lay clutches of three to 10 eggs in a season, starting in April. The incubation time for peachicks is 28 - 30 days. Peafowl are incapable of long flights, however they are able to fly short distances such as into trees where they like to roost. Peacocks are a wonderful part of living in Arcadia, however they can sometimes be disruptive and destructive. Below are some ways to deter peafowl from inhabiting your property: 1. When planning your garden, choose plants that peafowl find “unappetizing.” Please refer to the provided list of plants and flowers that peafowl like and dislike. 2. Peafowl do not like water. The intermittent use of sprinklers or a hose will act as a negative reinforcement for the birds. 3. Peafowl like to roost in trees that provide safety and protection. Trim or thin overhanging trees to deter peafowl from roosting in branches. 4. Peafowl like to eat young tender seedlings. Cover or fence off young plants until they are well-established and less attractive to the birds.

5. Peafowl are attracted to compost heaps because of the seeds and bugs. Don’t stop composting, however covering your compost bin will keep the peafowl out. Peafowl are a beautiful addition to the landscape of Arcadia. They add beauty and grace to our suburban lifestyle, while being a truly unique and historical addition to the city we all love. By taking a little extra effort and following these helpful tips, it is possible to live harmoniously with the peafowl, while still keeping your property one of distinction and high quality. It is possible to maintain a beautiful garden while living with peafowl by replacing a few of the plants and flowers that peafowl find desirable with ones that they find distasteful. For example, substituting impatiens with azaleas still creates an attractive yard while deterring peafowl from inhabiting your property and destroying your landscaping. Peafowl dislike these plants: Agapanthus, Azalea, Baby’s Breath, Bee Balm, Bird of Paradise, Blazing Star Liatris, Bouganvillea Butterfly Plant, Cactus, Camellia, Cannas, Clivia, Columbine, Coneflower, Ferns, Fuchsia, Gaillardia, Gardenia, Geranium. Giant Columbine, Gladiola, Gloriosa Daisy, Hen & Chicken, Hibiscus, Hardy Lavender, Hostas, Iris, Ivy, Lantana, Lavender, Marigold, Mint, Mum,Oleander, Painted Daisy, Periwinkle, Peonies, Phlox, Pink Lady, Plumbago, Poinsettia, Pyracantha, Rhododendron, Rose, Shasta Daisy, Snap Dragon, Sunburst Coreopsis, Weigela Peafowl love these

plants: Amaryllis, Begonia, Broccoli, Brussel Sprout, Cabbage, California Poppy, Cauliflower, Chive, Holly Berries, Impatiens, Kale, Kohlrabi, Lettuce, Nasturtium, Pansy, Petunia, Primrose, Stock, Stock Cauliflower, Sweet Alyssum, Tomato, Water Stock Young Spinach and any young plants One of the biggest ways to keep peafowl off your property is to not feed them. They tend to return to areas where they can find food. Peafowl love pet food, bird seed and bread. Feed your pets in the house or remove uneaten food soon after your pets have eaten. Be a good neighbor and don’t feed the peafowl! The birds can survive quite well on the wild and domestic plants, seed and insects. Remember, you can be fined for feeding wild animals. If the peacock is not injured or threatening your family, the Pasadena Humane Society and the City of Arcadia are unable to assist with the situation. Generally peafowl will not attack or harm adults, children or animals. The best thing to do to deter peacocks from returning to your property is to remove food sources. Peacocks love birdseed, dog and cat food, compost, as well as a variety of plants and flowers. By removing pet food once it is consumed, covering your compost bins and exchanging plants that peacocks find desirable with plants that they find distasteful, you should be able to reduce the presence of peacocks on your property. See the inside of this brochure for more helpful hints.

Sunnylands to host meeting between President Obama and President XI The White House announced Monday that President Obama will host a meeting with President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China at Sunnylands, the historic Annenberg estate in Rancho Mirage, California. The meeting has been scheduled for Friday-Saturday, June 7-8, 2013. “This will be President Obama’s first meeting with Xi Jinping since he became China’s President. President Obama and President Xi will hold in depth discussions on a wide range of bilateral, regional and global issues. They will review progress and challenges in U.S.-China relations over the past four years and discuss ways to enhance cooperation, while constructively managing our differences, in the years ahead,” according to the White House Press Secretary. "We are profoundly honored that President Obama has chosen Sunnylands as the venue for this important meeting," said Geoffrey Cowan, president of The Annenberg Founda-

tion Trust at Sunnylands. “Walter and Leonore Annenberg were remarkable philanthropists and diplomats who hoped that their estate could become a ‘Camp David of the West’ where the President would meet with world leaders to promote global peace and facilitate international agreements. The upcoming meeting between President Obama and President Xi begins to fulfill that vision, which is continued by their children and grandchildren who serve as our trustees.” Constructed in the mid1960s as the winter home of Walter and Leonore Annenberg, Sunnylands has hosted seven U.S. presidents, British royalty and other world leaders throughout its storied history. Notably, President & Mrs. Ronald Reagan celebrated the New Year’s holiday during every year of his presidency as overnight guests at Sunnylands, where he also conducted high level meetings with Secretary of State George Shultz and signed a major trade agreement with Canada. President & Mrs. George

H.W. Bush were also frequent guests at Sunnylands. In 1990, President and Mrs. Bush hosted a State Dinner at Sunnylands in honor of Japanese Prime Minister Toshiki Kaifu, one of the few occasions in history where a State Dinner was held outside the White House. The Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands, which operates The Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands in Rancho Mirage, California, is an independent 501(c) (3) nonprofit operating entity. In addition to high-level retreats that address serious issues facing the nation and the world, Sunnylands offers programs through the Sunnylands Center & Gardens to educate the public about the history of Sunnylands, its architecture, art collections, cultural significance, and sustainable practices. Sunnylands Center & Gardens is open to the public and admission is free. Tours of the Sunnylands estate require tickets and are available on a limited basis.

Sheriff understaffing Continued from page 1

out front line jobs, such as patrol duties. Clearly a catch 22 using this program and staying within the budget has caused hundreds of investigative hours lost each month as well as postponing followups on leads of active criminal cases, including

homicide investigations. "I can tell you this: if your house got broken into and nobody actually saw someone coming out of it, deputies don't have the time or the ability to go door-to-door asking neighbors if they saw any strange cars," he said.

"And you're not going to get a fingerprinting team out there for at least two weeks” Hayhurst admitted. Since the implementation of Carp Baca reported “we have experienced a notable decrease in departmental efficiency”.

With an increase in average response time to an emergency call up to 5.8 minutes the community and crime victims can no longer automatically expect detectives to immediately investigate their cases resulting in Jail staffing, gang suppression, parole/probation compliance checks, communityoriented policing, and many other services also taking a hit. “..Some cases may never be solved” said Hayhurst.

The department's Administrative Services Division Director Glen Dragovich said $36.6 million in funding would be enough to do away with CARP and Supervisors Michael Antonovich and Zev Yaroslavsky waste no time as they were concerned enough about understaffing to file a motion asking for a review of CARP's "unintended consequences." “It’s not a sustainable long-term policy," Yaroslavky said, in an inter-

view. "Between March 2010 and April 2013, CARPing has resulted in 1,517,360 hours of lost investigative, training, administrative, supervisory and specialized services," Antonovich's spokesman, Tony Bell, said in an email. "A plan that phases out CARPing is critical to the Sheriff's delivery of quality law enforcement services." The board briefly looked into the case last week, further actions are pending.

Pasadena police officers Continued from page 1

back in 2009, DA Paul Kim stipulated during the hearing that he had not received the missing discovery items from the Pasadena detectives. It was reported in several news articles that the two Pasadena detectives were "guilty of misconduct" and that the judge was declaring a mistrial "not because what the prosecution did or didn't do, but because what the police did or didn't do." On April 8, 2013, two Los Angeles Hardcore Deputy District Attorneys located a box that contained a large grey envelope that had handwriting on the envelope that read “Grigsby Discovery-Turn Over.” Found inside the Pasadena Police Department envelope was several recordings and over two-dozen pages of evidence that the Pasadena Detectives had turned

over to DA Paul Kim in 2009. Found inside the box were copies of several other items of evidence in the homicide case that belonged to DA KIm. On April 22, 2013, DA Peter Cagney, the Head Deputy of the Hardcore Gang Division, submitted a Declaration to Judge Larry Fidler regarding the alleged discovery violation on February 7, 2013. In his declaration, DA Cagney outlines the discovery of the missing files and explains how the items were mislabeled under a different name. He wrote that the files had been overlooked by DA Kim when he returned to the Pasadena office to retrieve his Sanford case file and that the writing on the police envelope was in fact that of DA Paul Kim. On May 8, 2013, there was an additional court hearing on the San-

ford case, but there was no mention in open court of the resolution to the discovery issue that was raised in the February 7th hearing, where the Pasadena Detectives were accused of misconduct. Attorney Alfonso Estrada, attorney representing Detective Broghamer and the Pasadena Police Officers Association, requested to address the court. Mr. Estrada advised the court of the discovery of the allegedly missing items, while also pointing out that consistent with the testimony of Detective Broghamer on February 7, 2013, the discovery items had in fact been turned over to the District Attorney's Office in the year 2009. Judge Fidler acknowledged on the record that he was aware of the recovery of the allegedly missing discovery items.

Tom Torlakson reports sharp drop in number of districts in financial jeopardy A new report shows that less than half as many California school districts are in financial jeopardy now as a year ago, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today. The state's Second Interim Status Report for 201213 shows that 92 local educational agencies (LEAs) are either in negative or qualified financial status. The same report from a year ago showed a record 188 LEAs in financial jeopardy. “When the number of districts struggling financially is cut in half, we know we are making tremendous progress—especially after years of tough budget cuts,” Torlakson said. “But the 92 districts that still face financial jeopardy represent some 1.7 million students, and we must continue our work to get them on solid fiscal ground. Thankfully, voter approval of Proposition 30— and the budget proposal that reflects it—keeps us firmly on that path.” Eight LEAs received negative certifications; 84 received qualified certifica-

tions. This is down from 124 LEAs in the First Interim Status Report for 2012-13, issued in March, and from the 188 LEAs in the Second Interim Report for 2011-12, issued a year ago. Twice a year, the California Department of Education receives Notice of Interim Certifications on the financial status of the state's 1,037 LEAs, which include school districts, county offices of education, and joint powers agencies. The certifications are classified as positive, qualified, or negative. A positive certification is assigned when an LEA will meet its financial obligations for the current and two subsequent fiscal years. A qualified certification is assigned when an LEA may not meet its financial obligations for the current or two subsequent fiscal years. This certification allows the LEA's county office of education to provide assistance to the district. A negative certification—the most serious of the classifications—is assigned when an LEA will be unable to meet its financial ob-

ligations for the remainder of the current year or for the subsequent fiscal year. This certification means the LEA's county office of education may intervene in the district's finances. The assistance or intervention by the county office may include assigning external consultants, requiring a district fiscal recovery plan, or disallowing certain district expenditures. This new list is a compilation of the certifications by LEAs that were due April 16, 2013, and cover the financial and budgetary status of the districts for the period ending January 31, 2013. The certifications reflect whether the LEAs are able to meet their financial obligations for the remainder of the current fiscal year and subsequent two fiscal years, based on projections at that point in time. These certifications predate the Governor's May Revision to the proposed 201314 state budget. Because these Interim Status Reports are snapshots in time, the LEAs' financial status may have changed since these certifications were collected.

PRESCRIBING FOR SLEEP APNEA?

5/24/13 10:35 AM

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.

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.

liance Program PAP Comp

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.

Judy Chu visits Guantanamo Bay Continued from page 1

fed.

“Nobody disputes that many of the people at Guantanamo deserve to face justice for what they have done. But the system is so broken that for many that day will never come. Instead of holding these people in an indefinite limbo, we should be trying them in a court of law. Instead of relying on military commissions, which have convicted only seven terrorists since 9/11, we should be relying on civilian courts which have convicted nearly 500 terrorists in the same time period. “Ultimately, this is more than a policy concern – it’s a moral one. This nation is synonymous with justice and the rule of

law. Our government must live up to the ideals that the American people abide by each and every day. And that starts by closing Guantanamo.” Since September 11, 2001, 60 federal district courts in 37 states have successfully and safely convicted at least one suspected terrorist. Not one has suffered any form of retaliation. Unlike military commissions, federal courts can try suspects for offenses re-

lated to fraud, immigration status, and illegal possession of firearms and narcotics. Military commissions have also had trouble prosecuting conspiracy and material support charges, which are routine in federal court. Federal prisons hold more than 300 individuals convicted of terrorismrelated offenses. None has ever escaped. Of the seven detainees convicted by military commission, only three remain in custody.

Technology is an integral part of everyday life at school and an animated character named "Sammy Smart" is helping Arcadia Unified School District students use computers respectfully, responsibly and safely. Sammy is the voice of AUP Online, an interactive online curriculum created by Lersun Development, a company specializing in digital safety education. Students login to Lersun’s AUP Online website and work with Sammy through a series of self-guided and interactive lessons that address using computers at school, making safe and responsible choices when navigating the Internet, and taking responsibility for decisions made. The program has lessons for all grade levels and is currently being implemented in AUSD’s elementary and middle schools. At the kindergarten level, Sammy introduces students to basic Internet safety concepts such as what constitutes personal information, the importance of not sharing this information online

and how school technology should be used. The lessons become more robust as students grow older so that the 4th and 5th grade version contains information and activities about not only personal safety online but also cyber bullying and ethical responsibility. In the middle and high school programs, the character becomes Cyber Sam and Samuel B. Safe III respectively and introduces new concepts such as source credibility and attribution, safety when participating on social networking sites and the dangers of sexting and sharing photos and personal information online. For many years students have been annually required to sign a paper agreement that acknowledges that the teacher has reviewed the District’s acceptable use policy. Documenting this acceptable use agreement and the district’s instruction on internet safety is important for all school district receiving federal e-Rate funding, a program that provides discounts of up to 90 percent of the cost of telecommuni-

cations service and Internet access to eligible schools and libraries. With AUP Online, after completing the required lessons, students electronically sign the Acceptable Use Policy and Lersun then electronically compiles time- and dated documentation of student participation. This gives the school district easy and credible documentation for federal compliance audits. Because the lessons are self-guided and hosted on a Lersun website, the course requires no teacher training and little support from schools’ technology staff. Teachers can take students to the computer lab during class or simply assign the course as homework. Students can access the lessons both at school and at home. AUP Online teaches online safety skills much more effectively than the former method of just reading and signing a copy of the student agreement said Baldwin Stocker teacher Lisa Shigemasa, shown right in a recent photo with her fourth and fifth grade students working with the program.

3 EMUHSD schools receive silver medals from U. S. News and World Report U. S. News and World Report, in its issue focusing on America’s best high schools, has awarded silver proficiency medals to South El Monte, Arroyo and Rosemead High Schools. Nearly 22,000 public high schools in 49 states and the District of Columbia were awarded gold, silver or bronze medals based on state proficiency standards, how well they prepare students for college and other factors. The research was based on key principles that a great high school must serve all

its students well, not just those students bound for college, and that it must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show that the school is successfully educating its student body across a range of performance indicators. “South El Monte High School is very proud of this accomplishment,” said principal Angie Gonzales. “We are working hard to meet the needs of all our students.” Arroyo and Rosemead High School principals Oscar Cisneros and Larry Cecil, respectively,

each expressed pride in his school, staff and students on the accomplishment. The three high schools were also awarded silver medals last year. El Monte Union High School District superintendent Nick Salerno expressed his pleasure on the recognition of the three district schools by U.S. News and World Report again this year. “This award would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our staff and students,” he said.

When they arrived, they discovered a back window open and the house had been burglarized. A resident in the area saw two, male Black suspects fleeing the home in a silver Toyota Camry. Arcadia Police Department received notification of the robbery and advised of an incident in Arcadia involving a silver Toyota that occurred approximately an hour earlier.

Sheriff's deputies contacted him on Rosemead Blvd. in the City of Rosemead and detained him. The boy had taken his grandmother's cell phone and debit card, and had withdrawn money with the card. Due to the fact that the boy

was not truthful about his identity with the Sheriff's Department, he was not determined to be the missing child from Monrovia until later in the day, when his true identity was discovered.

He was arrested and later released on citation. Later that day, at 4:11 p.m., a resident in the 400 block of Bradbury called stating a male subject knocked on his door and was acting strange. Officers responded and found the same subject who had been arrested earlier, walking in the street in the 1100 block of Lemon; he was making wildly unrealistic statements. He was detained and was taken to a hospital, where he was held for 72hour mental evaluation. Commercial Burglary Suspect Arrested May 8 at 3:04 p.m., an officer was dispatched to a business in the 1600 block of South Mountain on the report of a burglary. Store loss prevention had detained a subject who had attempted to take merchandise by hiding it in his waistband. The subject is currently on probation for burglary.

Reflection: Hastings Ranch Nursery School turns 60 By Nikki Landen

As the bright green leaves return to the trees in my play yard at Hasting Ranch Nursery School and the hot, hot weather creeps into the weekly forecast, I am reminded of how lucky I am to live in this beautiful foothill community. These massive trees that provide the children with shade and innumerable learning experiences were planted some 30 years ago, when I was a student at Hastings Ranch Nursery School. Yes, I am both an alum and a teacher carrying on the great traditions of the school and I am not the only one. Hastings Ranch Nursery School has such a magnetic quality that many of our parents are alumni, the teachers that are working here had their children enrolled here, our board members are alumni, and student volunteers from local high schools call to come in and perform service hours here. This school not only brings the community together but also generations, sharing in the traditions of play based learning, cooperative learning, and the emergent curriculum. Another amazing thing about this school is that it has been a part of the foothill community for much longer than 30 years; we are celebrating our 60th Anniversary this year. That is no small task for a small, com-

Monrovia depot project in full swing By Emani Payne Artist Cha-Rie Tang is currently creating the elaborate artwork for the future Monrovia Gold Line station on the Pasadena-to-Azusa foothill extension. The concept behind the Monrovia station’s artwork named River of Time aims to celebrate "man in harmony with nature" and draws on both the elements of nature and architectural features that are prominent in the small but proud foothill city. Tangs artwork will include a 7 foot high sculptural rock surrounded by a pool of glass bricks symbolizing ripples of water. As well as a "treasure trove" of Craftsman tiles - many of which were reproductions of tiles gathered from fireplaces, kitchens and bathrooms of community members. Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz said she was particularly excited about how

the artwork reflects the city of Monrovia's history by connecting with the community's love of Batchelder tiles as well as its love of nature. "I think (community members) are just going to be in awe of it," Mayor Lutz said, "I think people will stop and stare and look at it and enjoy it; they're not just going to walk through. They'll want to be a part of it for a while. " "It's just so different for public art to see this kind of quality that's not just out

there it's indigenous to the area,” Lesley Elwood, public art program manager for the Gold Line Construction Authority said. According to Elwood the total budget for the artwork's fabrication and delivery is $143,000 plus another $15,000 for design, and each city with a stop along the foothill extension had their public art committee decide which artists and concept they wanted at their stop making each one unique to that cities style.

McKinley School principal named Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) Superintendent Jon R. Gundry announced Tuesday the appointment of John M. Albert as principal of McKinley School for the 2013-2014 school year, pending board approval. Over 1200 students receive a quality education at PUSD’s McKinley School ranging from transitional kindergarten to eighth grade. “McKinley has a long standing reputation for excellence,” said incoming principal Albert. “I am ecstatic to join the talented team of students, parents, community members, classified staff and teachers.” Albert joins PUSD from the Capistrano Unified

School District in Orange County, where he most recently served as director of curriculum and instructional support. He was previously principal of Ladera Vista Junior High School, a visual and performing arts magnet school in the Fullerton School District and Washington Middle School in the Vista Unified School District. Mr. Albert has also served as an assistant principal and began his career as a high school social studies teacher. Pending board approval, Albert will begin working at PUSD July 15. “John Albert brings experience in instructional leadership to narrow the achievement gap at the secondary school level and a

track record for supporting the integration of technology to develop 21st century skills while fostering a shared vision among stakeholders to benefit all students,” said PUSD Superintendent John R. Gundry. “I would also like to thank Sharon Lefler and Jennifer Smith for stepping in and serving as an interim principal at McKinley during this past school year.” Awarded a doctorate in education by the California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) May 26, Albert also has a master’s degree in education administration, a secondary education teaching credential in social studies and a Tier II administrative credential from CSUF.

"We are very pleased Paul accepted our offer to visit the Neighborhood Music School, take a tour with Bernard Leon our office manager, meet with members of our board of directors and Wendy Kikkert, our

administrator, and accept our offer to be on our honorary Advisory Board. Paul is a leader in music and the arts in Southern California, and has done a tremendous job at enhancing the value of the Pasadena Symphony and POPS as a beloved part of the Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley community. We hope with his wise counsel and sharing of ideas we'll be able to do the same for the Neighborhood Music School and

the Boyle Heights community we serve," said Jeff De Francisco, the chairman of the NMS Board of Directors and a Pasadena based attorney. Growing up on the streets in Baltimore and being 'saved' by a Boy Choir Director, I know first hand the power of music and the Arts in a child's life. I'm pleased to be a resource to NMS in all they do to transform the community," said Paul Jan Zdunek.

Tom Torlakson announces funding for school construction and modernization State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today that the State Allocation Board (SAB) disbursed more than $519 million for 230 school construction and modernization projects across 92 school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools throughout the state. “Our schools are community centerpieces and play a key role in preparing young people for the future,” Torlakson said. “Local districts now have additional resources to bring to bear on construct-

ing and rebuilding schools, which in turn creates jobs and improves our students’ chances for success.” Torlakson’s Schools of the Future Initiative lays out the framework for “21st century learning” through the construction and modernization of school facilities, utilization of new technology, energy efficiency, and facilities for science and career technology education. The State Superintendent is one of 10 members of the SAB, which meets monthly to allocate state

matching funds for the construction of new classrooms, the modernization of existing schools, and other programs to improve learning environments, and adopts policies and regulations regarding SAB programs. The funds allocated by the SAB are from voter-approved general obligation bonds that cannot be used for school operational expenses.

Rep. Schiff hosts roundtable with Los Angeles public safety agencies to discuss ways to minimize helicopter noise Rep. Adam Schiff (DBurbank) hosted a roundtable with homeowners and representatives of public safety agencies recently on the issue of helicopter noise in Los Angeles County. Schiff has introduced the Los Angeles Residential Helicopter Noise Relief Act (H.R. 456), which would require the FAA to set regulations relating to flight paths and altitudes for helicopter flights in Los Angeles County. The bill exempts operations related to emergency, law enforcement or military activities, and the purpose of today's roundtable was to explore voluntary measures these agencies could undertake to reduce noise in nonemergency situations. “Since this legislation was introduced in 2011, we have been engaged in a thoughtful conversation with all of the stakeholders – home owners associations, helicopter pilots, news agencies and other community groups – which has resulted in an FAA study and a sub-

sequent report that we expect to be issued this week,” said Rep. Schiff. “There is little doubt that police, first responders and other public safety helicopters comprise a portion of helicopter noise in residential communities across Los Angeles County, and while these agencies, of necessity are excluded from the bill, we will be working with them to reduce their contribution to the noise when doing so would not compromise their vital operations. These agencies can contribute to the solution as well, and it’s my hope that today’s roundtable will be the first of many steps to help homeowners across Los Angeles get a little peace and quiet from helicopter noise.” The roundtable provided an opportunity for homeowners to discuss with the public safety agencies the practices they find most disruptive and intrusive. The free flowing conversation allowed members of the Los Angeles Area Helicopter Noise Coalition (LAAHNC)

to also offer suggestions for how the public safety agencies could improve their interaction with the communities they fly above and minimize the disturbances on those communities. The public safety agencies – with representatives from Los Angeles Police Department, Glendale and Burbank police departments, Los Angeles City Fire, LA County Fire, Los Angeles County Sheriffs, California Highway Patrol, the Coast Guard and the U.S. Army – had the opportunity to respond to the concerns and requests of the homeowners. This roundtable was an important first step in strengthening the homeowners’ and the public safety agencies’ understanding on this critical issue. Hopefully, it will lay the foundation for a continued dialogue and feedback that will ensure improved relations and interactions between the public safety agencies and the communities they serve.

Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by SHARON A BRADFORD, AN UNMARRIED WOMAN, dated 04/25/2007 and recorded 5/2/2007, as Instrument No. 20071059305, 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 06/13/2013 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: 35 TURNING LEAF WAY, AZUSA, CA, 91702. 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 $1,060,885.00. 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 fed-

eral 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.

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. 13-0000794. 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.

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. 11-0103666.

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.
