A group of experts has set up an institution named MidBrain Activation .The mission of MIDBRAIN Activation is to help children to foster and nurture multiple intellectual developments enabling students to harness the extraordinary powers of the dual brains “to produce wonderful results.” MidBrain Activation training corporation’s base is in the United States. Its comprehensive training program is designed to empower students (4 -18 years old) with the tools that will increase their memory. MidBrain training could be immensely beneficial for children in “unleashing that wondrous creativity within them,” according their website. The midbrain, also known as the mesencephalon, activates in response to specific stimuli. It responds both to signals from within the body and to external events. Research on midbrain activation looks at which areas of the brain respond to given stimuli and how these play a role in learning and other activities that require more complex brain activity. People with a particular interest in this subject can apply to participate in brain studies, where researchers scan the brains of their subjects while they are exposed to various stimuli. This section of the brain is part of the brain-

stem, located between this structure and the higher level cortexes responsible for critical thinking, language, and other complex activities. Signals from the higher and lower brain pass through the midbrain, activating it as they move through so the neurons can determine where to route the information. Midbrain activation can also directly control some processes, like eye movements and the physiological processes involved in arousal. When stimuli occur inside the body, a cascade of neurotransmitters sends the signal through the brainstem to the midbrain, where it decides what to do with the information. It can pass it on to another area of the brain or take action to directly regulate a process like internal temperature control. The midbrain also activates in response to external stimuli like sights and sounds, processing the information and bundling

it to an appropriate location elsewhere in the brain. Brain exercise is a training program designed to promote an increased learning ability. It is based on the idea that learning is connected to movement. Through brain exercise, it could create new pathways in the brain and overcome learning difficulties. Brain exercise is designed to help people of all ages master the mechanics of learning through a series of movements. It is associated with learning, rather than the mental, and uses the body through which the people’s learning ability can be enhanced. It is also developed to increase relaxation and improve circulation for people. It could help to avoid stress and coordinate between the left and right hemispheres. For more information please see their website: http://midbrain.com/index. php or call (888) 998-6988.

Whatever type of fare you’re using – single ride, pass or transfer from another system – it must be loaded on a TAP card to ride any Metro Rail line. For complete details and a schedule showing when each station will be latched, visit metro.net.

James on the music and choreography. Michael Grady accompanies and directs the music, a vital backbone for this stage play. Not surprisingly, the set is minimalist, with a platform, some boxes, a ladder, bench, and chair, plus cleverly stylized trees. It boasts the ingenuity of Ward Calaway, Dan Bergmann and Barbara Schofield. Holly Victoria must have had a field day with the costume design for such varied characters. “The Fantasticks” is the longest running off-Broadway musical, with 42 years and 17,162 performances to its credit. It has played in more than 60 countries. And now, happily, we can enjoy this ever-popular play right here at the Playhouse. A family-friendly show, “The Fantasticks” will con-

tinue at the Sierra Madre Playhouse weekends through July 13. Curtain time is 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2:30 p.m. for Sunday matinees. Admission is $25 general, $22 for seniors (65+) and students (13-17), and $15 for children 12 and under. The Sierra Madre Playhouse is located at 87 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre. City lots offer free parking. Pre- or post-theater dining at local restaurants on Baldwin Avenue and Sierra Madre Boulevard can enhance your theater-going experience.

10th Annual Pink Ribbon Spa Night supports breast cancer survivors from Huntington Memorial Hospital As has become a tradition and a warm expression of community support, 13 breast cancer survivors from Huntington Memorial Hospital were recently treated to spa treatment pampering at Tangle’s Salon in Pasadena. Services provided at the tenth annual Pink Ribbon Spa Night included manicures, haircuts, makeup and body and scalp massages. The women participating in the event included those either still undergoing or who recently completed chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer. “It was very emotional for all of us to see how impactful these treatments were to each woman’s state of mind,” said Tangle’s Salon Owner Cathy Sripramong. “Every member of our staff was inspired and honored to be part of an event such as this. We are looking forward to doing it again.” Helping to coordinate the event were Huntington Hospital Breast Center Nurse Navigators Nancy

Cushing and Tina Ivie, along with breast cancer survivor and hospital volunteer Helen Harris. “Some of the women receiving the treatments were in tears and so happy for the opportunity to slip away from the difficult experience going on in their lives,” said Harris. “The spa pampering made them all feel uplifted and special which is what the evening was all about.” Since 1998 the Huntington Hospital Breast Cancer Program has been providing patients with the latest advances in diagnostic imaging, breast surgery, medical oncology, radiation therapy and breast cancer support services. The hospital’s breast cancer center includes a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team of medical experts, all highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Surgeons and radiation oncologists provide treatment such as surgery and radiation therapy, while medical oncologists give drug therapies to destroy cancer cells that may have

spread beyond the breast. Huntington Memorial Hospital is a 625-bed not-forprofit hospital that is home to the only Level II trauma center in the San Gabriel Valley. In addition to being granted Magnet® status in 2011, Huntington Hospital has been ranked nationally by U.S. News and World Report in two specialties and was named the eighth best hospital in California. Renowned for its programs in neurosciences, cardiovascular services and cancer care, Huntington Hospital is an active teaching hospital with graduate medical education programs in internal medicine and general surgery. Consistent with its mission the hospital provides millions of dollars annually in charity care, benefits for vulnerable populations, health research, education and training, and support programs that may otherwise be absent from the community.

San Gabriel resident Jim Thurn is trying to keep the legacy of his cousin alive. Thurn’s late cousin was Violet Cowden. During World War II, Cowden was one of just nearly 1,100 women picked from tens of thousands to ferry combat aircraft around the United States mainland. They served in the Women Airforce Service Pilots, better known as the WASP, Thurn said. “She was way ahead of her time,” Thurn said of Cowden. “To be a WASP you had to have a pilot’s license. She already had her private pilot’s license.” Born in small town South Dakota in 1916, Cowden started out as a teacher, Thurn said. But she had another ambition than being in the classroom. “She took (flying) lessons while she was teaching school,” Thurn said. “She wanted to fly at a very young age. When the war started there was a mass call for women. They had to have a pilot’s license and had to be of a certain age.” WASP members ferried aircraft from factories to military bases, flight tested experimental warplanes, flew weather missions and night tracking missions and simulated strafing runs They flew more than 60 million miles in

78 kinds of aircraft. The only thing they didn’t do was fly in combat. Those in the WASP were originally not recognized by the military to receive benefits as their program was not created by Congress. However, in the late 1970s, then-President Jimmy Carter honored the women and everything began to change. They were in demand for speaking engagements and appearances. They were even recently given the Congressional Medal of Honor. Thurn said his cousin wasn’t sure what all the fuss was about. “She was a very modest person,” he said. “There’s a saying, ‘Heroes don’t brag,’ and she was one of those. It wasn’t anything she was gloating about.” Thirty-eight members of WASP died in service.

Cowden passed away a few years ago after living in Orange County with her family for many years. Thurn said she always had a zest for life and even jumped out of an airplane just a few years before she died, setting a then world record that actually bested former President George H.W. Bush who jumped out of a plane on his 80th birthday in 2004. Thurn also keeps a folder of newspaper and website clippings and other pertinent information on his cousin and WASP in general to keep memory of their service alive. “We were very close,” Thurn said of Cowden and her immediate family. “We were just together with her daughter this past weekend.” (Shel Segal can be reached at segallanded@yahoo.com).

Duarte City Council adopts local tobacco retail licensing ordinance

On May 14, 2013, after the second reading of a proposed tobacco retail license ordinance, the Duarte City Council Members unanimously adopted the local policy to regulate the sale of tobacco products. The policy will become effective on June14. Retailers selling tobacco products in Duarte must apply for a local tobacco retail license by July 1, 2013.

The Tobacco Retail License Ordinance will allow the City to better monitor the sales of tobacco to minors. During the most recent Youth Tobacco Purchase survey conducted through a grant from Glendale Adventists Medical Center, three out of 23 (13%) Duarte tobacco retailers were willing to sell cigarettes to volunteer participants under 18 years old. The Ordinance will require the 26 tobacco retailers within the City to purchase an annual license at $100.00 to recover the cost of administration and enforcement of the policy. Local enforcement of tobacco laws has been proven as an effective solution to reduce youth access to tobacco in many communities. For example, after the implementation of a local tobacco retail licens-

ing policy in Pasadena, the youth tobacco sales rate dropped from 19%, to 5%, to0%, and in Glendale, illegal sales dropped from 24% to 10%. La Canada Flintridge saw their rates drop from 47% to 0%! Although it has been illegal to sell tobacco products to minors in California for over 100 years, retailers continue to do so at alarming rates, according to this recent study. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one-third of youth smokers will eventually die prematurely from smoking-related illnesses. Approximately 438,000 people die in the United States from tobacco-related diseases every year, making it the nation's leading cause of preventable death.

ACLU files lawsuit Continued from page 1

rally use the phone—a lot—to talk about sensitive and confidential topics with clients, legislators, whistleblowers, and ACLU members. And since the ACLU is a VBNS customer, we were immediately confronted with the harmful impact that such broad surveillance would have on our legal and advocacy work. So we're acting quickly to get into court to challenge the government's abuse of Section 215. The ACLU's complaint explains that the dragnet surveillance the government is carrying out under Section 215 infringes upon the ACLU's First Amendment rights, including the twin liberties of free expression and free association. The nature of the ACLU's work—in areas like access to reproductive services, racial discrimination, the rights of immigrants, national security, and more—means that many of the people who call the ACLU wish to keep

their contact with the organization confidential. Yet if the government is collecting a vast trove of ACLU phone records—and it has reportedly been doing so for as long as seven years— many people may reasonably think twice before communicating with us. The kind of personaldata aggregation accomplished through Section 215 also constitutes an unreasonable search and seizure under the Fourth Amendment. Last year, in a case on GPS tracking by police, five members of the Supreme Court indicated support for the common-sense notion that government collection of individual bits of seemingly innocuous personal information over a long period of time could amount to such a complete invasion of privacy that it would be unconstitutional. The surveillance program that came to light with the release of the FISC order

constitutes precisely that kind of unreasonable incursion into Americans' private lives. Finally, the ACLU's complaint charges that the executive branch's use of Section 215 violates the plain language of the statute itself. The statute requires that records seized under its authority be "relevant" to an authorized foreign-intelligence or terrorism investigation. But while that language imposes a real limitation on when the government can use Section 215, the FISC order covering all VBNS customers demonstrates that this "relevance" restraint is shockingly inadequate. Similarly, the FISC order shows that the government—with the FISC's secret approval— is acquiring future records of telephone subscribers based on the same "relevance" requirement, even though the statute uses words that clearly show it was only meant to cover.

rize this warrantless and suspicion less collection of phone records. Last week, The Guardian released an order issued by the FISC that compelled a Verizon subsidiary—Verizon Business Network Services (VBNS)—to hand over, on an "ongoing, daily basis," details for every phone call placed on its network for a prospective three-month period. Collecting those details—"metadata" that reveals who people talk to, for how long, how often, and possibly from where—allows the government to paint an alarmingly detailed picture of Americans' private lives. The FISC order cited Section 215 as its legal basis, yet the breadth of the authority it granted to the government is simply incompatible with the text of the statute. As an organization that advocates for and litigates to defend the civil liberties of society's most vulnerable, the staff at the ACLU natu-

Dorothy's Place

Letter to the Editor

Genealogical news

By Dorothy Denne My regular readers know how I love going through old stuff--no, not my clothes closet-I mean old letters, pictures, attic boxes, files, that kind of old stuff. My cousin Richard is as bad as I. Richard discovered some genealogical information that shows we had a relative (I'm not sure he was enough older than we are to quite call him an ancestor) with whom I have more than family blood in common. His name was Peter and he wrote a column for a paper in Johnson City, Tennessee. As my column is called Dorothy's Place, his was PETE SEZ with a lower case line below "Published for the benefit of those who read it". (I like that line. May steal it one day.) For the next couple of weeks, I'll be sharing some of his stuff with you. Let's start with a column published in August, 1916.

Postage Stamp Inefficiency Motion-study and stopwatch-methods have swept the country. Everyone has the Efficiency habit. Nothing has escaped the eagle eyes of the Efficiency experts--except the poor patient little Postage Stamp, much reverenced for its sticktoitiveness and ability to deliver the goods. But we have caught up with it at last. It has been investigated and here are the facts in the case: A two-cent stamp will carry our one ounce of firstclass mail matter without being overloaded. The average business letter weighs only one quarter of an ounce--which means that three-fourths of a postage stamp's energy is wasted. (Wonder how those Efficiency Experts happened to overlook this?) Think what this enormous waste of 75 per cent amounts to with a large concern having a big daily mail? On every letter sent out one and one-half cents is wasted. On every One Hundred Dollars spent for postage, SeventyFive Dollars are thrown away. One concern is Johnson

Send your letters to tmiller@beaconmedianews.com

City mails about three hundred letters a day. Their annual expenditure for stamps is in the neighborhood of $1,800, of which $1,300 is dead loss. Think of it. Take your own postage account, assume that 50 percent of it is for mailing letters, and figure what the inefficiency of your postage stamps cost you. No other department of your business would be permitted to operate in such a manner, then why allow the mailing department to do so? Uncle Sam says a twocent stamp is strong enough to carry 'one ounce or the fraction thereof'. It is up to the stamp user to keep it working as near its rated capacity as possible. Give it the load to carry. With every letter, invoice or statement, enclose some neat, attractive, well-printed selling talk about your goods, a new use or a new feature well illustrated or what others are doing with or saying about this line or that. A booklet or folder does not cost much and all the business it brings in is so much velvet. Make your stamps do their duty.

Pasadena City College Police unarmed - Resident asks why? Dear Editor: Considering the recent tragedy on the Santa Monica City College campus and the increasing trend of school shootings, this may be a good topic to cover. PCC is one of the largest community college's (26,833 students) of the 111 California community colleges. PCC maintains its own police department and the officer's are unarmed. I believe PCCPD is the only community college post certified police agency that remains unarmed. It was reported that a SMCC campus police officer engaged the shooter during the gun battle which ultimately led the suspect's life being taken. Police Department Facts: -Post certified sworn police officers per 830.32 of the California Penal Code. -24/7 full service police department -Often times one officer

on duty (7 active sworn, 5 officers, 1 sergeant, 1 chief -No radio contact with Pasadena Police Department -Required to respond to calls for services, effectuate arrests, respond to crimes in progress and initiate traffic stops. - Receive and write reports of "school shooting" threats The topic has been discussed many times over the years. The decision rests in the school presidents hands, Dr. Mark Rocha, and that of the seven elected board of trustee members. The board members, under the direction of former Chancellor Jack Scott, are against the arming of the police officers. Scott is against firearms, speculated because he lost his son to a firearm. Student/Faculty concern: - Are the students aware their police force is unarmed?

- What happens if there is an active shooter on campus? - What is an unarmed officer going to do to protect the members of the campus community he/she are sworn to protect? - What is the response time from the Pasadena Police Department (ten minutes)? How many lives can be taken? - Shooting up the school threats have been received from the campus psychological office and directly through the police department. The campus community is scared. Our police force is not prepared and that is very scary. Our campus is an open campus all hours of the day and night. A faculty member was recently assaulted on campus. Name withheld PCC Employee

Duarte Youth Coalition rejoices Dear Editor As members of the Coalition of Arts and Advocacy About Tobacco, we are so proud of our city, because our leaders have chosen to stop stores from selling tobacco to youth. We gathered data and testimony from other teens that showed proof of stores willing to sell cigarettes to minors. We presented

that information to the City Council, and now kids will have a hard time buying tobacco products in Duarte! Stores will be fined, if they are caught selling cigarettes illegally. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the younger a person is when they start smoking, the more difficult it is to

quit. Three out of 4 smokers start before they are 18 years old, so our tobacco retail license ordinance will protect a whole generation of young people who might otherwise become addicted to nicotine. As they become parents and teachers, they will encourage kids not to smoke, and they will have the law to back them up!

some board members upset that district Superintendent Sandra Johnson recently got a $52,000 raise while the teachers have been working without a contract since 2012, Johnson defended her salary. “I’m still the next-to-lowest-paid superintendent in the area,” Johnson said. “I think I’m earning every dime.” School Board Member Janet Chin, who is in the middle of a recall campaign, agreed that Johnson is worth the money. “The majority of the board – not just one board member – gets to decide that,” Chin said. “We think she’s the right person for the job at this moment.” Johnson also said while the union is trying to negotiate a pay raise for its members, the district has “been

trying to negotiate some type of reduction,” making for an angry situation. “It’s a combination of things,” Johnson said. “We’re not getting what we want on both sides. The district has a structural deficit. It’s very real. We have not been able to negotiate any financial concessions with (the union), like furloughed salary days, reductions in benefits. “Our structural deficit means we spend more than we take in, so we’ve got to cut something. Even with the passage of Proposition 30, right now we will have a qualified budget, which means you can’t meet your budget requirements in the next three years.” Chin added the district is still trying to negotiate with the union through the diffi-

cult time and is “continuing to come to the table. We’ve met with them 27 times.” She said it’s not a question of if the teachers should get more money, but a rather is the money there to give. “I think all teachers should get raises,” she said. “If we have the ability to do that is something else. If we talk about where our teachers are on the scale, in a market study we did it shows our teachers are between number five and number seven of 27 districts studied. They’re doing OK. They have a pretty good deal.” Chin also said the union needs to change its strategy in approaching these meetings. “They need to come to the table and negotiate fiPlease see page 15

Trial for 9-1-1 caller in Kendrec McDade shooting postponed in hopes of plea bargain By Emani Payne The Jury trial for Oscar Carrillo, an immigrant who made false 9-1-1 calls resulting in the death of 19year- old Kendrec McDade at the hands of Pasadena police officers, originally set for earlier this week has been postponed until June 17th as Andre Bustamante, Carrillo’s attorney hopes to reach an agreement with the city prosecutors office on a plea bargain. On March 24th 2012 Officers Mathew Griffin and Jeffrey Newlen shot and killed McDade during a police pursuit beginning when Carrillo made the call to officers alleging that McDade and his friend robbed him at gunpoint near a taco truck on Orange Grove Boulevard. The officers argued that during pursuit they saw McDade reach for his waistband and in turn without hesitation opened fire on McDade who was later found to be unarmed. Ultimately Carrillo admitted he lied to the police about being robbed at gunpoint in hopes of getting officers to the scene faster. Carrillo is currently not being held in custody and prosecutors have not filed manslaughter charges against him for McDades

death however Acting Chief Assistant City Prosecutor Kimery Shelton is confident she has enough evidence to convict Carrillo of at least several misdemeanor charges as he currently faces one count of falsely reporting an emergency, three counts of falsely reporting a criminal offense and two counts of delaying or obstructing a peace officer all on top of the issue of him being an immigrant. While it is unclear whether Carrillo will be allowed to stay in the Pasadena with his two children or even stay in the country to serve his potential charges federal immigration officials have said they will allow him to stay in Pasadena for the duration of his case. Unlike Carrillo the District Attorney’s Office concluded that the officers acted within the law and no charges were brought up against them. Unsatisfied Dale Galipo, the attorney for McDade's mother, Anya Slaughter, argues that Carrillo is not to blame for McDade's death and that the officers should in fact be held accountable. As a result Galipo and attorney Caree Harper, who is representing McDade's father, Kenneth McDade,

have filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Pasadena, Sanchez, Carrillo, Griffin and Newlen in hopes of finding a way to pinpoint what they believe is the real issue within the case, holding officers accountable for officer-involved shootings. "I've consistently maintained that the civil case is not about the taco shop," Harper said. "Mr. Carrillo was not the trigger man. Officers Griffin and Newlen made calculated, independent decisions to pursue, to hunt, Mr. McDade down. ... They had a lot of other options." Currently the city has offered Carrillo a settlement in which he would serve 90 days in jail, 90 days of community service and pay a hefty fine for the police resources used in the McDade investigation. However Bustamante argues that the jail time should be dropped completely and the fee should be drastically reduced, because he does not believe Carrillo was directly responsible for the officer-involved shooting that ended in McDade's death. The trial date for the civil case will be set at the end of July.

2 Arrested for March murder in Azusa By Shel Segal An Azusa man and a juvenile male were arrested Friday morning when officers from the Azusa Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies served a multiple location search warrant in several San Gabriel Valley communities in connection with a murder that took place in March, police officials said in a statement Saturday morning. Daniel Cabral, 20, was taken into custody for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. The unidentified juvenile was arrested after he failed to comply with officers’ commands, police officials said. Officers from the Azusa Police Department Detective Bureau and Gang Specialist Unit were reportedly gathering evidence related to the March murder when Cabral and the juvenile were arrested, police officials said. In addition, Azusa

police were serving the multiple location search warrant alongside officers from Azusa SWAT, Covina Police Department SWAT, the Glendora Police Department, Baldwin Park Police Department, Monterey Park Police Department, Alhambra Police Department and the West San Gabriel Valley

Anti-Crime Task Force, police officials said. Police officials added their warrant “was successful and the investigation continues.” However, the results of the searches were not disclosed by police. (Shel Segal can be reached at segallanded@ yahoo.com).

Gabrielino High Valedictorian to attend Stanford By Shel Segal With more than a 4.0 grade point average, San Gabriel resident 17-year-old Pavin Trinh was recently been awarded the valedictorian for the 2013 Gabrielino High School graduating class. Trinh, was especially likes the sciences, will be attending Stanford University this fall. He said he was glad to have received the honor. “It was exciting,” Trinh said of being named the student with the top GPA over the past four years. “I worked as hard as everybody else did. My friends worked hard, too. We motivated each other to work hard.” His favorite subject, he said, was biology. However, he is still not sure what he will major in at Stanford. “I’m interested in trying new things,” Trinh said. “If something changes I could major in anything.” Trinh added he is not receiving too much pressure from his parents on what to study. “They just want me to learn and find out what it is I like,” he said. Trinh said he loves reading and watching movies – especially horror and suspense flicks – and that most of his spare time in high school was filled up with

studying. But some of that was social, he added. “We had study groups,” he said. “We spent a lot of time studying.” His most memorable classes were English, chemistry and physics, with the latter being notable difficult for him. “That was really hard,” Trinh said of physics class. But biology was his favorite for a good reason, he said. “The teacher was very engaging and we did a lot of labs,” he said. “They were interactive. We got to dissect some stuff, like frogs and pigs. I liked it for a bit. I don’t know if I could do it every day of my life.” So, what are Trinh’s plans for this summer? “I’ll read a lot of books and learn how to drive,” he said.

Trinh was accepted into colleges in three states, but chose to stay on the West Coast for good reason. “(Stanford was) more science oriented,” he said. “And the weather is better here.” Trinh lives with his parents and younger brother, who will be attending 10th grade next year at Gabrielino. Away at college, he said he’ll be looking forward to “meeting new people and being more independent.” But there are some aspects of high school he said he will miss. “The classes are really small compared to college,” Trinh said. “I’ll also miss my teachers and friends and family.” (Shel Segal can be reached at segallanded@yahoo.com).

California continues to show strong signs of financial recovery - Chiang State Controller John Chiang today released his monthly report covering California's cash balance, receipts and disbursements in May 2013. Total revenues for the month equaled $7.27 billion, beating estimates by $799.1 million (12.4 percent). "California continues to show strong signs of recovery. May’s higher revenues reflect growing employment, increased consumer spending, and a resurgent housing market," Chiang said. "However, this good news should be tempered by nagging questions regarding its sustainability and by the need to repay years of accumulated debt." The State ended the last fiscal year with a cash deficit of $9.6 billion, and by May 31, 2013, that cash deficit narrowed to $3.2 billion. That deficit is being covered by external borrowing. Personal income taxes for May came in $596.6 million above (20.5 percent) monthly estimates outlined in the Governor’s

St. Frances of Rome Food Bank Azusa needs donations The non-profit organization that serves over 100 families a month within the local community is in need of help. They are currently seeking any donations from the community as they prepare for the summer season. Donations since the end of the 2012 holiday season have been poor. Due to the lack of monetary funds, the food bank has stopped purchasing dairy products and perishable items for their monthly distribution. The

food bank desperately needs community help. The summer season is the second busiest time of the year, with the holiday season being the first. Many individuals do not realize that children are home from school and parents must provide an additional 2 meals per child (breakfast and lunch) everyday. The average household the Food Basnk serves has approximately 4 children and amounts to about 16 meals per day, not including adults.

With this season quickly approaching, St. Frances of Rome is asking the community to donate any nonperishable items. Monetary donations are also greatly appreciated. Any donations may be dropped off at: St. Frances of Rome Parish Center 506 N. Soldano Ave. Azusa. Monetary donations may be sent to: St. Frances of Rome Food Bank501 E. Foothill Blvd. Azusa, Ca 91702 (626) 9691829 for further information.

months,” said Habib F. Balian, CEO of the Construction Authority. “As a result, the grade of the property has changed significantly, shifting by approximately 13 feet from north to south to allow for a more level surface to build the facility.” The campus is designed to be a state of the art, full-service maintenance and operations facility for servicing Metro’s expanding light rail system. It will house up to 84 light rail vehicles (enough

to service the Foothill Extension and other regional lines), and contain areas for vehicle inspection, heavy repair, body repairs, painting, storage, cleaning and more. In addition, nearly 200 Metro employees are expected to work at the facility, involved in both the maintenance and operations of the county’s light rail system. “We have worked very closely with Metro to make sure the design and completed campus will meet their overall needs

for decades to come,” add Balian. “At the same time, we have also added elements – such as extensive landscaping around the perimeter of the property, and a campus viewing area – that have the community in mind.” The facility is on schedule to be ready to receive light rail vehicles starting in early 2015, in advance of the Foothill Extension from Pasadena to Azusa light rail project’s full completion in September of that year.

Safety urged during Fourth of July activities in Pasadena The Pasadena Fire and Police Departments remind all residents and visitors that the best way to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday with family and friends is by attending professional fireworks shows such as Americafest at the Rose Bowl Stadium. The sale or possession of all fireworks is illegal in Pasadena. Violators are subject to confiscation and impound of vehicles; up to one year in jail and fines up to $50,000. Call Pasadena Police at (626) 744-4241 to report illegal fireworks. Due to the high potential for fire hazards and injuries, Pasadena police and fire personnel will staff checkpoints around the Rose Bowl Stadium to seize all fireworks and arrest offenders. In addition, the Pasadena Fire Department will begin applying Phos-Chek on Tuesday, June 25, to brush areas surrounding the Rose Bowl Stadium. The main ingredients of this annual, preventative application of fire retardant are phosphates and fertilizers that help prevent trees and grasslands from burning and to re-vegetate any burned wild land

areas. “The risks with fireworks are not limited to their use,” Pasadena Fire Chief Calvin E. Wells said. “Fire and injury risks also exist wherever fireworks are stored, transported or sold.” Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez urged everyone to make safety a priority on July 4th. “Safety is a partnership between the City and our community. The City’s Police, Fire and Public Works departments are joining together to increase awareness about the prohibition of fireworks in the city to help lower the risk of fires and injuries,” Chief Sanchez said. “On July 4th, a Fireworks Task Force will patrol the streets to confiscate fireworks and take appropriate action. We need your help, so remember, if you see something, say something.” Parking enforcement officers will ensure that vehicles illegally parked in Pasadena’s hillside areas on July 4 are impounded. Pasadena public safety officials stressed that the enforcement operations are to prevent accidents, fires and injuries. “Even sparklers, which

many people consider safe, can reach 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, causing serious burns and starting fires,” Wells added. “Adults normally don’t allow their children to get near anything that hot, but for some reason they think it’s acceptable to put sparklers in the hands of little ones on the Fourth of July.” Statistics show fireworks are among the most risky of consumer products. Nearly 10,000 fireworks-related injuries are treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms every year and two of five people injured by fireworks are under 15 years old. The most current statistics from the National Fire Protection Association show that in 2009 more than nine out of 10, or 92 percent, of all fireworksrelated injuries treated in hospitals were caused by fireworks that are allowed for consumer use by federal or state regulations. For more information about fireworks safety and enforcement, call the Pasadena Fire Department at (626) 744-7276. For information about the Americafest Fourth of July celebration, visit www.rosebowlstadium. com or call (626) 577-3101.

nancial issues, not language,” Chin said. “They just want to negotiate the language of the contract.” However, another school board member, Bob Bruesch, said this is not an ordinary labor strife situation. “This is not your normal workers versus management argument,” Bruesch said. “It’s a battle for respect on the part of the teachers … When is the majority of our school board and the superintendent going to begin again respecting our teachers and staff as professionals?” While saying the size of the teachers’ raise is “for negotiation,” Bruesch said he feels for the teachers. “We’ve got a couple of hundred angry employees and they have a right to be,” he said. Bruesch added the superintendent and the board majority do not have the best interest of the teachers at hand. “Their minds are not on the employees,” he said. “They’re only looking out for the superintendent and saving the superintendent’s job.” Michael Drange, union

president, agreed with Bruesch, saying Johnson is not extremely popular with the union membership. “We’ve been battling with the superintendent for quite a while,” Drange said. “We took a no confidence vote and 96 percent of the teachers voted no confidence in the superintendent.” Drange said he is hoping the two sides can meet in the middle soon, but is not confident they will. “We have a couple of all day sessions coming up,” he said. “We are hoping we can come to some kind of agreement.” In addition, Drange said the district isn’t using current information in negotiating with the union. “The district still has salary cuts on the table, benefits cuts and furlough days,” he said. “These things have not been updated since Proposition 30 passed back in November. We’re trying to get them to put new data in and bring it to the table for bargaining.” (Shel Segal can be reached at segallanded@yahoo.com)

Popular ‘Summer Festival on the Green’ concert series set to start June 29 at Santa Anita The California Philharmonic Orchestra and Santa Anita Park will again combine forces as Cal Phil’s widely popular nighttime “Summer Festival on the Green” concert series will begin in the Santa Anita Infield on Saturday, June 29. The “Festival on the Green” will consist of five night-time concerts, with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. and each performance slated to begin at 7:30 p.m. “Anyone who joined us for this series here last year knows what an incredible night-time venue our Infield area has become,” said Santa Anita President George Haines. “The lighting, acoustics and ambiance are truly amazing and we’re thrilled to have Cal Phil back with us this summer. “Cal Phil is a world-class orchestra headed by Maestro Victor Vener and he has once again attracted a full schedule of top-line entertainment to accompany the orchestra for all five performances. It’s going to be a lot of fun.” Cal Phil, which will be embarking upon its 17th

summer concert season, will be joined by the highly acclaimed cover band, “The Fab Four—the ultimate tribute,” for its first performance, on June 29. They will not only be performing all of the Beatles’ most popular songs, they’ll do the same with Beethoven and the Beach Boys as well. Santa Anita’s spacious Infield, which affords attendees the area’s best unobstructed view of the beautiful San Gabriel Mountains, will be supplied with tables, benches with backs, and an expansive area for people to relax and enjoy the concerts on a finely manicured lawn. Mezzanine seating and a corporate barbeque pit area are also available. “In addition to great entertainment, we’ll be offering everyone jumbo video screens, gourmet food options, full-service bars and permanent restrooms,” said Haines. Santa Anita Park Hospitality will also be providing a wide range of dining and beverage options during each live performance. “We’re going to be

offering everything from appetizers, to complete dinner entrees, to dessert,” said Haines. “Additionally, we’ll have a great selection of fine wines, as well as popular beers like Amstel Light, Corona and Stella Artois. All of these items are reasonably priced and we encourage everyone to visit Cal Phil’s website at www. calphil.org, for complete details.”

Admission gates will open for each performance at 5:30 p.m. Ample, convenient parking will be available by entering Santa Anita’s Infield parking lot via Gate 6, north of the track, on Colorado Place. For more information on Cal Phil’s Festival on the Green summer concert series at Santa Anita, please call (626) 300-8200, or visit www.calphil.org.

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

Why Classic?

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

Compliance through great patient care

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

Our CPAP Circle of Care® program

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

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

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

Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance

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

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

Skeptical?

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

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

POLICE BLOTTERS Arcadia PD

Sunday, June 2: Around 9:00 a.m., an officer was dispatched to the Arcadia Police Department front counter regarding a theft report. While the victim was walking around the Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, unknown suspect(s) stole her cell phone from inside her purse. When the victim called the phone, a female subject answered and explained she would return the phone in exchange for $200. The victim declined the suspect’s request and reported her phone stolen. Just after 8:00 p.m., an officer responded to 24-Hour Fitness, 125 North First Avenue, in reference to a battery report. While inside the sauna, the victim asked another subject to lower her music because it was too loud. Shortly after, the subject became upset, punched the victim in the chest, and fled the location. The suspect is described as Hispanic, approximately 23-years-old, 135 lbs., with black hair, wearing a grey t-shirt and black pants. She can be identified if seen again. Monday, June 3: At approximately 1:23 p.m., an officer responded to Citibank, 100 South First Avenue, in regards to a silent robbery alarm. Officers confirmed an attempted robbery had just occurred and conducted an area check for the male suspect, but he was not located. An investigation revealed the suspect entered the location holding a black cassette case with D-cell batteries attached to the bottom, which he claimed was a bomb. The suspect demanded money from a bank teller and stated he was forced to commit the robbery by someone outside who was also in possession of the trigger. Due to the teller’s slow

pace, the suspect fled the location without obtaining any money. The suspect is described as a White, 23 to 30-years-old, with blond hair, wearing a red sweater and khaki shorts. Further investigation is being conducted by the Detective Bureau and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Just after 9:10 p.m., an officer was dispatched to a residence in the 600 block of Rosemarie Drive in regards to a disturbance between a landlord and tenants. The tenants became upset after the landlord attempted to rent out a portion of the home to another family. The officer discovered the location is being used as a birthing home. Further investigation is being conducted by the Special Investigations Detective. Tuesday, June 4: At about 00:29 a.m., an officer was dispatched to Arcadia Fire Station 106, 630 South Baldwin Avenue, in regards to a welfare check on two subjects who were sitting on a nearby curb for several hours. The officer discovered the 28-year-old Hispanic female subject and her 3-year-old son had been reported missing. The mother was under the influence of a controlled substance, had an outstanding misdemeanor warrant, and neglected to feed or bathe her son. She was arrested and transported to the Arcadia City Jail for booking, and the juvenile was taken into protective custody by the Department of Child and Family Services. At roughly 8:50 a.m., an officer responded to CVS, 188 Las Tunas Drive, in regards to a suspicious subject inside the store. The subject had been inside the store for an extended period, but had not purchased anything. The officer made contact with the subject and discovered

he was in possession of drug paraphernalia. The 33-yearold Hispanic male was arrested and transported to the Arcadia City Jail for booking. Wednesday, June 5: At approximately 2:30 p.m., officers responded to the suspected birthing home residence in the 600 block of Rosemarie Drive regarding a civil dispute. The tenant explained the location’s electricity was turned off for an unknown reason; however, he suspected the landlord terminated the service in attempt to “force” his family out of the house. Further investigation is being conducted by the Detective Bureau. Around 9:50 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 500 block of West Woodruff Avenue in regards to a residential burglary report. Unknown suspect(s) forced entry through a back door, ransacked the location, and fled undetected. The loss was unknown at the time of the report and no evidence was located. Thursday, June 6: At about 7:56 a.m., officers responded to an apartment complex in the area of Second Avenue and Diamond Street in reference to a suspicious male subject loitering around carports.

Monrovia PD

Possession of Narcotic Paraphernalia - Suspect Arrested May 17 at 4:12 p.m., suspicious subjects were reported, possibly looking into parked vehicles in the 100 block of South Mountain. Upon the officer's arrival, two subjects were detained, a male and female. The female subject was found to be in possession of a methamphetamine pipe and a small amount of marijuana in her purse. The female was arrested for possession of the pipe. The area was searched, but no evidence of any vehicle tampering or burglary was found. The female also had outstanding warrants issued by the Arcadia Police Department. The second subject was identified and released. Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance - Suspect Arrested May 17 at 12:54 a.m., police received a call reporting a possible drunk driver traveling north on Myrtle from Longden. An officer responded and located the vehicle on Myrtle at the railroad tracks and conducted a traffic stop. During the investigation, the driver was determined to be driving under the influence and was arrested. Possession of Narcotic Paraphernalia - Suspect Arrested May 19 at 9:52 a.m., an officer on patrol observed a known subject walking on the sidewalk. He knew from prior contacts with her that she might have outstanding warrants. A computer check confirmed she had an outstanding warrant and she was detained. During a patdown search, two drug pipes were found on her person. She was arrested and taken into custody. Assault With a Deadly Weapon / Brandishing a Firearm / Battery / Criminal Threats - Suspect Arrested May 19 at 2:52 p.m., police were dispatched to a business in the 400 block of East Huntington regarding an assault with a deadly weapon. A male and female employee argued over a coworker that had been fired. The male employee blamed the

female employee for the firing of his friend. The female victim alleged the male suspect struck her in the back of the head with his fist. He then drove his vehicle toward her while she was standing in the parking lot. The suspect then stopped his vehicle near the victim and pointed a handgun at her and threatened her. He threw several items from his vehicle at her and then fled the scene. The victim drove home and called police. Police responded and located the suspect. He was arrested after giving conflicting statements about the incident and witnesses corroborated portions of the victim's statements. The officer obtained an emergency protective order for the victim after the suspect arranged to be bailed out of jail. Commercial Burglary / Possession of a Controlled Substance for Sales - Suspect Arrested May 20 at 1:48 p.m., officers were dispatched to a business in the 1600 block of South Mountain on the report of a fraud in progress. An unknown suspect fraudulently purchased a large generator online for over 1,400 dollars. The next day, a suspect came to the business to pick up the item; however, while staff was reviewing the purchase, they noticed the suspect was very nervous, and he suddenly left the store. A loss prevention officer investigated the purchase and discovered the credit account information used was unauthorized. The account holder was contacted, and it was confirmed that the account was compromised and the purchase was fraudulent. Several hours later, the suspect returned and attempted to pick up the item again. The police were immediately notified, and the suspect was quickly detained by the arriving officers. The suspect claimed he did not purchase the item and was only picking it up to drop it off at a construction jobsite. However, the suspect's statements were inconsistent and suspicous. During a consentual search of the suspect, a large plastic baggie with a white crystalline powder was found in the suspect's pocket. He told officers it was sugar, but it was later tested and determined to be methamphetamine. As the quantity was much larger than a drug user would be in possession of, the suspect was also charged with

possession of a controlled substance for sales. Investigation continuing.

Meetings slated on process to update Pasadena General Plan - June 15, June 27 The public is invited to two information meetings in June to learn about the process for updating the City’s draft General Plan Land Use and Mobility Elements, the direction given to staff by the City Council and the overall environmental review process. The meetings scheduled in June will be held at: • 9:00 a.m., Saturday, June 15, at Pasadena City College’s Circadian Room, Building CC, 1570 E. Colorado Blvd. Park in Lot 3 off South Hill Avenue. • 6:30 p.m., Thursday, June 27, at Pasadena Presbyterian Church’s Gamble Lounge, 585 E. Colorado Blvd. Free parking is available on the north side of East Union Street. City staff will provide the same in-depth presen-

tation at both meetings, including information about the direction given by the City Council to study changes to the General Plan; what an environmental impact report (EIR) typically includes; information on how a General Plan EIR is different from other EIRs, and future opportunities for public comment and participation during the EIR process. Although the June meetings are not part of the formal EIR process, staff will retain public input on any initial comments about the subjects that the EIR should study. One of the first phases will be for staff to prepare an environmental “Initial Study” document. This Initial Study will provide preliminary environmental analysis, give initial findings on the potential level of environmental im-

pact and indicate which subjects require additional study. In the future, the City will host environmental scoping meetings to allow the community to review and provide feedback. Throughout the process, staff will continue to meet with the public to present progress, share analysis and receive public comment. To view the proposed changes to the General Plan Land Use and Mobility Elements, or for more information on the General Plan Community Information Meetings, visit www.cityofpasadena.net/ generalplan, call (626) 744-7310, or email generalplan@cityofpasadena. net.

126 teens graduate Sheriff's Vital Intervention & Directional Alternatives (VIDA) Program On June 8, 2013, at Belvedere Middle School in East Los Angeles, LASD Assistant Sheriff Cecil Rhambo awarded diplomas to 126 teenagers who completed the Vital Intervention and Directional Alternatives (VIDA) Program. In awarding diplomas to the graduates, Assistant Sheriff Rhambo stated, “I am extremely proud of these young men and women for displaying the dedication it takes to complete this training program.” The VIDA graduates are from Altadena, Century, East Los Angeles, Lakewood, Lancaster, South Los Angeles, Palmdale, Santa Clarita Valley, and Temple Sheriff’s Stations. The VIDA program started in 1996 at the East Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station by two deputies, Vincent Romero and Drew Birtness, in an attempt to stop the generational arrests they witnessed throughout their careers and to create an alternative to juvenile incarcerations. Since inception, VIDA has evolved into a cognitive, behavior-based, re-directional program designed for families of at-risk youth between the ages of 11 and 17½. It has served approximately 10,000 families while becoming a significant resource for redirect-

ing juvenile delinquency in Los Angeles County. These students are referred to the program through the Juvenile courts, Probation Department, schools, families, Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, foster homes, patrol deputies and station detectives. VIDA focuses on risk factors that increase the likelihood of juvenile delinquency. These risk factors include family relationships, academic achievement, anti-social peers, antisocial attitudes, recreational time and substance abuse. Risk factors are confronted through cognitive behavior intervention techniques and social modeling. VIDA Deputies conduct welfare checks of all students both at home and school. The VIDA curriculum

focuses on healthy living, academic and vocational achievement, truancy reduction, increased literacy, workforce preparation, improved parental relationships, and substance abuse prevention. The program requires youth to attend 160 hours of training and educational courses, while their parents attend 32 hours of parenting classes. “It’s about building a strong working partnership among law enforcement, community-based organizations, schools, and families so that these children can have a second chance. It’s about intervention in an effort to break a cycle that has no future,” said Assistant Sheriff Rhambo. Sheriff Lee Baca joined the VIDA volunteers and graduates for comments and photos after the ceremony.

West Nile virus identified in Arcadia The San Gabriel Valley Mosquito & Vector Control District confirmed that a dead bird identified by a District vector ecologist was infected with West Nile virus (WNv). The bird was collected in central Arcadia southeast of Santa Anita Avenue and Duarte Road. This is the first confirmation this year that WNv is being transmitted actively in the District. Birds are natural hosts for WNv and are routinely monitored to indicate whether the virus is active in the San Gabriel Valley. Mosquitoes transmit WNv from one bird to another when they bite to obtain a blood-meal necessary for egg development. Because WNv is fatal to many common urban species, dead birds serve as an early warning that virus is being transmitted. People can become infected with WNv if they are bitten by an infected mosquito. West Nile virus threatens

the health of San Gabriel Valley residents every year. Last year, 479 people were sickened and 20 died in California alone. While the illness is typically not life threatening, approximately one in five will develop disease that results in extended periods of significant fatigue and muscle weakness. People over 50 years of age or with underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness which requires hospitalization and may lead to permanent disability. District officials hope this information motivates residents to take the necessary precautions against mosquito bites and remove source of standing water sources around their homes. Proactive monitoring, early season mosquito control, and public education are critical to reduce disease transmission. Throughout the summer, basic protective measures should be fol-

lowed: - DUMP AND DRAIN: Check properties weeklyand remove all sources of standing water. Report ‘green’ inoperable pools or other sources of standing water to the District - DAWN AND DUSK: Avoid outdoor activity in the early mornings and for sevearl hours after dusk when mosquitoes are most active. - DEFEND: Wear effective repellents when outdoors during these times, and ensure doors and windows are properly screened to keep mosquitoes out. The District encourages the public to help identify WNV “hot spots”: Report dead birds and squirrels to the WNV Hotline at (877) WNV-BIRD (877-968-2473) or www.westnile.ca.gov. Report mosquito problems to (626) 814-9466 or www.sgvmosquito.org

Life Remembered Marilyn Alice Zaiss Marilyn Alice Zaiss, beloved Mother and Grandmother, died peacefully at home, surrounded by loved ones, on June 4, 2013. She was born in Pasadena on March 21, 1923, and was the only child of Guy and Alice Hodgkins. Her maternal grandfather was prominent Pasadenaarea builder Peter Hall. She was the widow of Walter E. Zaiss, a World War II veteran, who passed away in 2001, and is survived by

her son James Zaiss, daughter Shirley Perez, son-inlaw Joe Perez, and granddaughter Alissa Perez. Mary was a graduate of Marshall High School and attended Pasadena Junior College. During WWII, she worked as a lens grinder for a piezoelectric products company in South Pasadena. She married Walter in 1945, and in the early 1950s they moved into a house he built in Sierra Madre,

where she continued to live for the rest of her life. Mary had been a member of various local organizations, including the Sierra Madre Rose Float Association, the Sierra Madre Hospital Women’s Auxiliary, and the Sierra Madre Woman’s Club. Her hobbies included bowling, doing crossword puzzles, and painting plaster statues. She was loved by many, and will be missed.

Three SoCal based friends turn passion for gourmet hot dogs into an in-demand fast national franchise This country may be going to the dogs after all! And leading the pack are Dog Haus partners Hagop Giragossian, Quasim Riaz and André Vener. Born from a passion for hot dogs, what started between friends as an idea for a fun new concept has turned into Dog Haus, a full-fledged thriving restaurant with three locations in the San Gabriel Valley: Pasadena, Alhambra and Dog Haus Biergarten in Old Pasadena. And now, less than three years later, the little restaurant that not only could but did, is launching as a national franchise. Dog Haus’ accelerated growth is a testament to a business model that was built upon an unwavering dedication to detail. Everything from its proprietary hot dogs and Haus recipes to the presentation of its cleverly named fare, fun family friendly atmosphere, and custom décor to its exceptional and welcoming staff create the undeniably unique Dog Haus experience. “Our small business success story has turned into a nationwide opportunity for others as well,” said Giragossian, who also serves as Vice President of Franchise Development. “By franchising, the wellhoned Dog Haus brand has unlimited potential to dominate what is now a minimally served niche market in the fast causal

restaurant arena.” “We hit it out of the park with Dog Haus and are beyond thrilled to franchise and become a national brand,” added Riaz. “Hot Dogs have long been a treasured part of America’s culture and Dog Haus is honored to be at the forefront of the present-day hot dog revolution.” Dog Haus’ leadership in the hot dog revolution has generated a local cult following that is ready to explode across the country. Why? Countless reasons that may even outnumber the various ways Dog Haus customers can customize their gourmet hot dogs. To begin with, Dog Haus exclusively serves its own proprietary 100% all-beef skinless hot dog and tucks it inside Grilled Hawaiian Rolls instead of traditional buns—a unique sweet and savory combination that customers eat up. Then, while embracing both traditional American favorites along with creative one-of-a-kind recipes, Dog Haus piles on a bounty of uncompromisingly fresh produce and the highest of quality toppings.

Building on California's close ties with China, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. Saturday met with President Xi Jinping of the People's Republic of China. The meeting, which lasted more than 40 minutes, covered an array of topics, including bilateral cooperation on: trade, investment, climate change, technology, infrastructure, tourism, education and agriculture. During the meeting, the Governor shared the recently released consensus statement on climate change with President Xi, a document that translates key scientific findings from disparate fields into one unified message for policymakers, industry and the general public. The statement has been signed by hundreds of concerned scientists around the world and aims to improve the nexus between scientific research and political action on climate change.

Governor Brown also shared the consensus statement with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry during a private meeting on Friday. Over the weekend, Governor Brown also met with a number of Chinese government officials, including: National Development and Reform Commission Chairman Xu Shaoshi, National Development and Reform Commission Deputy Director Liu He, Ministry of Commerce Minister Gao Hucheng, Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai and Chinese Consul General of Los Angeles Qiu Shaofang. The Governor’s meeting with President Xi follows a year and a half of significant diplomatic and business exchanges between California and China, including the Governor’s Trade and Investment Mission to China in April and meetings with President Xi during his visit to California as then-

Vice President of China last February. During the Governor’s Trade and Investment Mission, Governor Brown met with China's Premier, China’s Chairman of the National Development and Reform Commission, top government officials from Shenzhen, Guangdong, Jiangsu and Shanghai, China’s Minister of Commerce and China’s Minister of Environmental Protection, signing the first agreements ever between a subnational entity and Chinese Ministries. The Governor also opened the CaliforniaChina Office of Trade and Investment in Shanghai, delivered remarks on climate change at Tsinghua University in Beijing, met with the U.S. Ambassador to China at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing and spoke at forums hosted by the American Chamber of Commerce – South China and American Chamber of Commerce – Beijing.

Opinion 21st Senior Games a major success in bench pressing at Sneiders family fitness in Arcadia By Harry Sneider The Sneider family has hosted the Senior Games competition for the last 21 years. Some great lifters have emerged and have gone on to win national as well as world championships in bench pressing. This year we had Bill Weinstock, an AAU official, help us with the meet. Harry Sneider has won numerous world championships and at age 61 put up 450 lbs. Sarah won her 18th gold medal. One of the highlights of this championship meet was Heather Blum from Murrieta putting up the heaviest weight lifted by a woman, 140 lbs. Arline Connelly from Pasadena, who has been a loyal lifter for the last 15 years, put up a very strong 95 lbs at age 66. Jeanette Parker of Arcadia, who will soon be in a documentary about her overcoming back surgery and setting California state records, put up 80 lbs at age 75. The battle of the 84 year olds certainly was an exciting contest between Ruth Saenz from Rosemead and Joyce Getzen from Arcadia. Both put up 70 lbs. Ruth won the Women’s Best Lifter Award for the second year in a row because of the bodyweight coefficient. The men’s competition had a story of major overcoming by Manny Mora of La Crescenta. He

survived a major operation to remove a tumor in his stomach at age 80. When he came out of this operation he could barely do one pushup. Slowly but surely he built himself up to 50 pushups and a 150 lb bench press and received the Men’s Best Lifter Award in this competition. There are really no excuses for not trying to be the best that you can be. Let these stories of individuals who conquered illness, surgery, and age inspire you to start working out and staying healthy and well. Other great lifting was performed by Joe Jenkins from Riverside who put up a mighty 300 lbs at the bodyweight of 190. He came close to being the best lifter in the competition but Manny beat him out on an age coefficient as the best lifter. Other notable lifters included Loren McClurg of Pasadena who did 275 lbs, James Doyle of San Mateo put up a very impressive 290 lbs,

and Pete Antoine of Beaumont did a powerful 255 lbs. Pete’s come for many years to lift in these competitions. Richard Parker of Arcadia also got a gold medal. David Conner, a University of Minnesota graduate, a school that I went to, powered up 265 lbs. The Senior Games have been a part of the San Gabriel Valley sports and fitness culture. They include many sports that you can participate in like golf, tennis, swimming, track and field, cycling, feats of strength, bowling, basketball, softball, volleyball, and others that are exciting and youth invigorating. Contact Cynthia Rosedale at 626-685-6754 or www. pasadenaseniorgames.org. The Games run through June 30 and you still can enter. We are training athletes for these Games year round.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by MARTIN GARCIA, A SINGLE MAN, dated 10/03/2006 and recorded 10/11/2006, as Instrument No. 06 2258741, 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 06/27/2013 at 9:00AM, Doubletree Hotel Los Angeles-Norwalk, 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: 475 SHRODE AVENUE, DUARTE, CA, 910103436. 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 $514,115.24. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier’s checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state.

of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on a property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-800-2818219 or visit this Internet Web site www. recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case TS No. 11-0094500. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

years worth of current global greenhouse gas emissions. The agreement between the United States and China reads as follows: Regarding HFCs, the United States and China agreed to work together and with other countries through multilateral approaches that include using the expertise and institutions of the Montreal Protocol to phase down the production and consumption of HFCs, while continuing to include HFCs within the scope of UNFCCC and its Kyoto Protocol provisions for accounting and reporting of emissions. HFCs are potent greenhouse gases used in refrigerators, air conditioners, and industrial applications. While they do not deplete the ozone layer, many are highly potent greenhouse gases. Their use is growing rapidly as replacements for ozone-depleting substances that are being phased out under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. Left unabated, HFC emissions growth could grow to nearly 20 percent of carbon dioxide emissions by 2050, a serious climate mitigation

concern. The Montreal Protocol was established in 1987 to facilitate a global approach to combat depletion of the stratospheric ozone layer. Every country in the world is a party to the Protocol, and it has successfully phased out or is in the process of phasing out several key classes of chemicals, including chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), and halons. The transitions out of CFCs and HCFCs provide major ozone layer protection benefits, but the unintended consequence is the rapid current and projected future growth of climate-damaging HFCs. For the past four years,

the United States, Canada, and Mexico have proposed an amendment to the Montreal Protocol to phase down the production and consumption of HFCs. The amendment would gradually reduce consumption and production and control byproduct emissions of HFCs in all countries, and require reporting in these areas. The amendment includes a financial assistance component for countries that can already access the Protocol’s Multilateral Fund, and leaves unchanged the reporting and accounting provisions of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and Kyoto Protocol on HFC emissions.
