Governor Edmund G Brown Jr. Thursday joined business leaders and workers to call for action on his plan to revamp the state’s economic development program and help put Californians back to work. “California’s thirty-yearold Enterprise Zone program is not enterprising, it’s wasteful. It’s inefficient and not giving taxpayers the biggest bang for their buck,” said Governor Brown. “There’s a better way and it will help encourage manufacturing in California.” “The Silicon Valley -Photo by Terry Miller

To develop near-zero emission natural gas engines Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) has joined the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (SJVAPCD) and the California Energy Commission (CEC) in issuing a request for proposals (RFP) to support the development of ultra-clean natural gas engines for a variety of heavy-duty vehicle applications in the South Coast Air Basin (SCAB) and San Joaquin Valley Air Basin

(SJVAB). “Natural gas will play a vital role in advancing transportation solutions that support California’s goals and policies for emission reductions and a sustainable energy future,” said Jeff Reed, director of business strategy and development for SoCalGas. “Natural gas has a proven track record as a clean fuel in a wide range of vehicle types,” said Barry Wallerstein, SCAQMD’s executive officer. “This initiative will take natural gas

engine technology to the next level to help us meet our clean air goals in the Southland.” The initiative, funded up to $9 million by the participating agencies together with $500,000 in matching funds from SoCalGas, aims to demonstrate natural gas engines capable of achieving aggressive, near-zero emission standards for onroad, heavy-duty vehicle applications suitable for refuse, goods movement, drayage, transit, or school bus applications.

capital projects. Metro is circulating the amendments for comment and plans to hold a public hearing on the matter on June 27. “We are very disappointed and frustrated that Metro continues to blatantly ignore the voter mandate, which clearly defined the Gold Line Foothill Extension project from Pasadena to Claremont,” explains board chairman and Glendora councilman Doug Tessitor. “Metro has yet again disregarded the request by the Construction Authority to update information in their Measure R Expenditure Plan to include an accurate cost estimate to complete the project to Claremont. As shown in their plan amendment, the project will end in Azusa.” Earlier this year, as required by statute, the Construction Authority board approved an updated expenditure plan for the Foothill Extension project. The updated project-level expenditure plan took into account the latest information known about the

project, following significant study and planning completed since Measure R was approved in 2008. “We have a much better idea what the total project will truly cost,” added chairman Tessitor. “We have now awarded all contracts for the Pasadena to Azusa segment and have recently completed extensive environmental studies of the Azusa to Montclair segment. Together, this information allowed us to provide Metro a more accurate estimate for use as they update their overall expenditure plan. Unfortunately, they have chosen not to include the information in their The proposed Measure R Expenditure Plan Amendment includes a total estimated cost for the Foothill Extension project of $758 million, significantly less than the actual cost estimate ($1.714 billion) to complete the project to Claremont. The plan also includes an expected proj-

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today issued the following statement regarding the death of United States Forest Service Firefighter Luke Sheehy: “Anne and I were saddened to learn of the death of Firefighter Luke Sheehy, a young man who devoted his life to protecting his fellow Californians. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues.” Firefighter Luke Sheehy, 28, of Susanville, was fatally injured by a sec-

tion of a falling tree at the scene of a lightning-sparked wildland fire in the Modoc National Forest 15 miles southeast of the community of Alturas. Firefighter Sheehy was a member of the California Smokejumpers, an airborne firefighting unit of the United States Forest Service based in Redding, California. Prior to his career with the United States Forest Service, he served 5 seasons as a firefighter for CAL FIRE.

Creative arts summer camp helps kids find their expression Pasadena Child Development Associates is offering a two-week Creative Arts Summer Camp for children ages 8 – 12, starting August 5 – 16, 2013 on the campus of 620 N. Lake Ave., Pasadena, CA. Daily hours for the camp are 9:00 am – 12 noon. The camp will focus on strengthening each child’s ability to express themselves through several different forms of artistic practice. Each day, participants will explore a different arts modality, including the visual arts, dance, music, theater, and more. The purpose of the camp is to provide a variety of children with handson opportunities to interact in a creative way. After an introduction to each modality, each child is encouraged to explore and create for themselves. Children will get to experiment under the guidance of skilled artists, and work towards discovering which artistic modality is best suited for their self-expression. These individual forms of expression, personalized by each child, will be compiled into

a collaborative final project that each child will be able to bring home to share with family and friends. One parent, Nicole Thai, says “Music therapy has been the one most effective treatment for my child’s communicative skills. It was during his beginning music therapy session that we heard his first words in response to a song he had listened to since

birth.” Cost of the two-week camp is $600 per child. The Pasadena Rotary Club has donated a $4,000 grant to provide selected scholarships to the camp. For more information about enrollment, or to inquire about scholarships, please contact Melissa St. John at 626-793-7350, ext 261, or email MelissaS@PasadenaChildDevelopment.org.

Hernández honors Carousel Realty as small business of the year Assemblymember Roger Hernández (D-West Covina) honored Carousel Realty owner Carol Facciponti-Malcolm as the 2013 Small Business of the Year for the 48th Assembly District. Facciponti-Malcolm joined 79 other small business owners who were honored for their contributions to California’s economy and their local communities. “For over 20 years, Carousel Realty has been a leader in the community. Thanks to small businesses such as Carousel Realty, which is a true leader in our community and helps California’s economy grow stronger. I am a strong advocate for the small business community and we must provide opportunities to encourage entrepreneurship in this

state,” said Hernández. Facciponti-Malcolm launched Carousel Realty in 1993 while she was adjusting to being a single mother and widow. She has helped numerous families to keep the “American Dream” alive by providing professional services and resources who are first-time home-buyers. FaccipontiMalcolm has served her local community in a number of capacities including being on the boards of the East Valley Community Health Clinic, San Gabriel Children’s Center, the Real Estate Foundation and the East Valley Hospital. In 2002, she served as President of the Citrus Valley Association of Realtors, where she led the organization and help other local Realtors become

more involved in their local communities. She has also won a number accolades including, Citrus Valley Association of Realtors Real Estate Professional of the Year in 2002 and 2005, and being named 2008 Woman of the Year by Congresswoman Hilda Solis. “As a strong advocate for the small business community, I will continue to protect and assist small businesses in California. They are the backbone of our economy and we must protect these employers who provide countless jobs in or local economy. In California, there are over 700,000 small employers, which makes up nearly 98.2% of private sector employees,” stated Hernandez.

Governor Brown Continued from page 1

Leadership Group is pleased to support the Governor’s proposal, which targets critical economic development funds to areas where California can lead – the manufacturing, R&D and biotechnology sectors,” said Silicon Valley Leadership Group President and CEO Carl Guardino. “This is smart economic development done right.” “The Governor’s plan wisely targets our tax dollars to good jobs that build the middle class and strengthen communities,” said California Labor Federation Executive Secretary-Treasurer Art Pulaski. “California workers stand with the Governor in his efforts to create good jobs that will spur our state’s economic growth.” The Governor’s plan, proposed in the May Revision, builds on the framework of existing, targeted programs by redirecting approximately $750 million annually from the current flawed Enterprise Zone program to three new economic development programs: Sales tax exemption: A statewide sales tax exemption on manufacturing

equipment or research and development equipment purchases by firms engaged in manufacturing or biotechnology research and development. The proposal is estimated to provide sales tax exemptions worth over $400 million annually. Hiring credit: A hiring credit targeted to businesses located in areas with the highest unemployment rate and poverty. This credit will be available for the hiring of long-term unemployed workers, unemployed veterans and people receiving the federal earned income tax credit. The credit will only be allowed to taxpayers who have a net increase in jobs. The proposal is expected to provide approximately $100 million annually in hiring credits. Investment incentive: The California Competes Credit based on specified criteria including the number of jobs to be created or retained and a set job retention period. This component of the proposal is expected to provide between $100 million and $200 million per year in tax credits. Studies on enterprise

zones show that the current program, established nearly three decades ago, is ineffective, wasteful and expensive. Research from the Public Policy Institute of California indicates the program has no overall effect on job growth, while a recent California Budget Project report showed the program has cost California $4.8 billion since its inception and has primarily benefited less than half of 1 percent of the state’s corporations. The Governor’s economic development proposal enjoys broad support from businesses and workers alike, including: Northrop Grumman Corporation; IBM; Advanced Micro Devices Inc.; Bay Area Council; Bay Bio; Biocom; Bloom Energy; California Healthcare Institute; California Labor Federation; California Teamsters Public Affairs Council; Clorox; Genentech; Gordon Biersch Brewing Company; Intel; International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers; International Longshore and Warehouse Union; International Union of Operating Engineers; PhRMA; Silicon Valley Leadership Group; State Building & Construction Trades Council of California; Unite Here!; United Food and Commercial Workers; Utility Workers Union of America; Webcor Builders and the Wine Institute.

Rustic charm at Drakesbad Guest Ranch Part 1 By Greg Aragon Sometimes you have to drive a little to get away from it all. And sometimes it’s well worth it. Such was the case recently when a friend and I escaped to Drakesbad Guest Ranch, a beautifully remote hideaway, located in Northern California’s Lassen Volcanic National Park. The adventure began near the tiny town of Chester, where we drove down a winding, 17-mile dirt and gravel road to the entrance of the 110-year-old ranch. Here, we found a small group of bungalows and a lodge, tucked at the base of a hill, surrounded by a giant meadow and a towering forest of trees. We then met managers/hosts Pat and Valerie Flack, who gave us the rundown and showed us to our cabin. Overlooking the meadow, our room was rustic and comfortable. Like most ranch rooms, it didn’t come with electricity, but made up for it in old-time charm. It came with two wooden

beds, a heater, and a bathroom with shower and a solar lamp and kerosene lantern. It also boasted a wooden patio protruding into the meadow, with spectacular views of Lassen Volcanic Park, surrounding mountains, the hot springs pool and the resident horses. The patio is also a great place to meet the ubiquitous deer and marmots that graze in the tall grasses a few feet from the room. Once settled in, we joined 20 or so other Drakesbad guests at the main building for dinner. And this is where things got interesting – and tasty. While the ranch may be primitive, its cuisine is exciting, comforting and definitely gourmet. Our meal began with a divine BLT salad with lettuce, avocado, bacon strips, basil pesto, tomato vinaigrette and fresh mozzarella. We accompanied this with a glass of chardonnay. For the main course we devoured a memorable Griddled Salmon, with lobster claw meat and giant prawn risotto; English peas, baby carrots and asparagus Vin Blanc. For dessert we split homemade cheese cake with

drunken strawberries. After dinner we soaked in ranch’s soothing hot mineral springs-fed pool. Still in the same spot since Drakesbad (German for Drake’s bath), opened in 1900, the pool is a great way to unwind after a day in the 5,000-ft elevation of the mountains. Back at the room, I lit the kerosene lantern and read about the legendary history of the ranch and all the hydrothermal wonders

such natural steam vents, bubbling mudpots, hot springs and volcanic rock that surround it. It all started in 1900, when Alexander Sifford, an ailing school teacher from Susanville, CA traveled three days by horse wagon with his family to experience the healing powers of Hot Springs Valley and to drink the soda waters of “Drake’s Spring,” which were named for pioneer Edward Drake. Sifford liked the land so much he

purchased it from Drake for $6,000 and renamed the property Drakesbad. For the next 60 years his family owned and operated Drakesbad Guest Ranch, welcoming visitors from all over the world. In 1916 Congress established Lassen Volcanic National Park as the 15th US National Park. In 1958, privately-owned Drakesbad was sold to the government. Since the sale, Drakesbad has been run by California Guest Services.

Ed and Billie Fiebiger ran it for the past 19 years and Pat and Valerie recently took over the managing duties. Next week I continue my tour of the ranch and Lassen Volcanic National Park, with a hike to steamy Devil’s Kitchen, a lesson in archery, a night of star gazing, an incredible prime rib dinner, and much more.

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

Why Classic?

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

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

able to continue to collect usage data.

Compliance through great patient care

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

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

Our CPAP Circle of Care® program

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

Interested in learning more? www.classicsleepcare.com

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

Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance

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

Skeptical?

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

Not currently screening for Sleep Apnea?

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

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.

City of Glendale ranked among safest cities in the nation The final 2012 FBI Uniformed Crime Report has been released. Chief Ron De Pompa is very pleased to announce continued improvement in the Glendale’s rankings amongst cities with populations of 100,000 or more. The significant results show that Glendale is the #5 safest city in the State of California, improving from #7 in 2011. Glendale is ranked #8 nationally with a population of 100,000 or more. It was in 2010 when the city was ranked #17 nationally, a ranking not common to the City of Glendale. “This is significant when it comes to the service provided by the hardworking men and women of the Glendale Police Department,” said Chief De Pompa. “What is more important are the strategies utilized by our personnel, the partnerships developed with our community through Area Command, the technology used to enhance our capabilities in preventing crime from occurring or apprehending offenders quickly and finally the support we receive from our City Council.” The Glendale Police Department has implemented several strategies and partnerships despite budget

constraints and operationally working with fewer officers and support personnel. These include our regional programs with local, state and federal agencies operating within the Glendale Police Department such as the US Marshal’s Task Force, the Eurasian Organized Crime Task Force and the AB109 Task Force that recently formed to deal with the early release of felons from state prison. Area Command has been in full operation for approximately two years and the benefits from the partnerships with the community is evidenced in the crime rankings. The Verdugo Regional Crime Laboratory opened last year with a new DNA Laboratory. The ATF’s National Integrated Ballistic Information Network has a component operating in the lab servicing law enforcement agencies in the greater Los Angeles area. In 2012 there were no homicides to report in Glendale and an overall 10% reduction in violent crime. For property crimes, there was a 12% decrease from the previous year. In an analysis of the top ten cities in the state and national rankings, it is important to recognize that Glendale is

one of four cities showing a reduction in crime and the only California city with a significant double-digit decrease. For Crime Rankings click here. To review the 2012 final crime report click here. In early 2013, Crime Analysis was identifying an alarming spike in property and violent crimes, however with aggressive strategies implemented by the men and women of the Glendale Police Department, the city is once again trending another 4% reduction in overall crime in 2013 compared to the 2012 report just released. Additional reports can be found under Crime Reports. The Glendale Police Department would like to remind everyone about an upcoming event to continue our partnerships and to celebrate our continued reduction in crime. National Night Out is coming to a neighborhood near you, or you can sign-up and host your own event. National Night Out (NNO) is Tuesday, August 6, 2013 and the Glendale Police Department will again be partnering with members of the community to take a stand against crime, drugs and disorder in their neighborhoods.

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.
