Homeowners tied and blindfolded during robbery On June 13, 2013, at approximately 11:44 PM, the Arcadia Police Department received a call of a robbery that took place at a residence located in the 500 block of east Norman Avenue. When the officers arrived at the residence, it was confirmed that a home invasion robbery had occurred. There were initially two victims at the residence who were tied up and blindfolded as the suspects ransacked the home. Three additional victims arrived home at the residence while Please see page 16

By Emani Payne and Terry Miller After years of examination, the often heated argument(s) over construction of Sierra Madre middle school is over and the decision decisively impen-

After a lackluster 1-2 start to the season, Mike Rizzo, Manager of the Arcadia American Little League Minors Orioles, was not anxious. He knew that with a few adjustments, he had a winning team on his hands. As things turned out, Rizzo was more than proven right, as the Orioles completed one of the most successful seasons in AALL history by defeating the Arcadia National Yankees Saturday at a packed Longden Yards, 9-5, to win the California District 17 Little League Tournament of Champions in an allArcadia final. Not only did the Orioles win the AALL regular season championship, and the AALL post-season tournament where they defeated a good Diamondbacks team in the second round in one of the best-played games of the year, but the "Angry Birds" ended up winning 20 of their final 21 games en route to the league's first TOC championship since 2004. The Orioles, who earlier in the season won eight straight games, concluded their championship run with 12 straight victories and a 21-3 record. When catcher Ian Walker threw out a Yankee runner trying to steal second for the final out Saturday, capping the Orioles' fourth win in the weeklong TOC, it set off a raucous celebration among players, coaches and fans. The play completed closer Eddie Jin's latest of many saves, with the big right-hander retiring the other five outs that he secured by his most traditional method: strikeout. Justin Chen, who teamed with Jin and brothers Ryan and Brandon Nguyen to form one of the most potent batting quartets in the district, got the win, striking out eight in his three

innings of work with Ryan Rizzo coming on in a tough situation in between Chen and Jin to get some key outs. Jin had two more hits Saturday to cap a monster offensive tournament, and Chen an RBI and automatic double, but it was Walker who perhaps did the most damage going three for three with an RBI and a pair of doubles. Ryan Nguyen also added two runs batted in as the Orioles won their third overall game against the Yankees, and eighth at Longden Yards in 2013, without a defeat. The Orioles really hit their stride in the post season, defeating the Diamondbacks, 4-2, and Cardinals, 13-10, to win the AALL Minor’s Tournament in two straight. It was then off to the TOC tournament, matching the champions of the various District 17 little leagues. To start things off, the Orioles defeated the Pasadena American Tigers, as Guy Gruppie, Jr. got typical balanced offensive support to back his strong starting pitching effort. Gruppie struck out six Tigers in 2 1/3 innings, before giving way on the mound to Rizzo and Jin and helped his own

cause with two hits in two at bats, with an RBI and three runs scored. Jin was a force at the plate as usual, going 3 for 3 with 4 RBIs, while outfielder Joshua Yeh and shortstop Jason Pysher each had two RBI. Then in the quarterfinals, the Orioles defeated the previously unbeaten San Marino Tigers, 14-0, in perhaps their best overall game of the season. Justin Chen and Ryan Nguyen combined to limit the Tigers to a single hit, while the Orioles got seven RBIs combined from the Nguyen brothers. Both were credited with inside-the-park home runs. In the semifinals, the Orioles faced the Pasadena Central Dodgers, fresh off an impressive win over the Pasadena Southwest Orioles. The Orioles' offense went full throttle from the first inning on, compiling 22 hits on the way to an 18-5 win. Four Orioles--Ryan Nguyen, Deven Salazar, Chen and Brandon Nguyen, had three hits each. In the final, the Orioles built a 9-0 lead, then called on Jin to preserve the win, with Joe Chung hitting a key triple, and Cody Harrington a big single. The O’s struck out only 12 times in the TOC.

‘The Fourth Wall’ onstage a new Stages of Gray Theatre Why would Peggy leave one living room wall completely blank, undecorated? Even she seems unable to explain it, but she is adamant. And it’s driving her husband Roger bonkers—so much so that he has asked Julia, a longtime family friend, to visit and try to help him figure what’s going on with his wife. Julia, a highly dramatic New York actress, seems willing to help, but perhaps even more willing to comfort Roger. She can’t seem to keep her hands off him, and her comments are replete with double entendres. Roger also asks Floyd, a local theatre professor, to visit in hopes that he can delve into Peggy’s obsession with the wall and help her free herself. Peggy, meanwhile, occupies herself with good deeds and the notion of making the world a better place. For her, that “fourth wall” invites wonder—What’s beyond it? Who’s beyond it? What new horizons might await? She asks Roger to join her in envisioning the wonders that might lie past it. But to her husband, it’s simply an enigmatic, annoying fourth wall. Fourth wall. In theaters, it’s the invisible wall that lies between the onstage actors and the audience. In Peggy’s home, it’s the one she’s left blank, the one that invisibly divides her from us.

Construction authority opposes Measure R amendments At their regularly scheduled meeting Wednesday, the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority (Construction Authority) board of directors voted unanimously to oppose the Measure R Expenditure Plan and Measure R Ordinance Amendments as proposed by Metro. The Amendments are being proposed to allow Metro to accelerate funding to five Measure R transit projects ahead of the year approved by voters in 2008. The changes would only take affect if Metro is able to secure close to $6 billion in federal funding and grants for one or more of the Measure R transit 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 exten-

sive 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 project completion of 2015-17, only reflecting completion of the first half of the project to Azusa. The Construction Authority’s plan estimates completion to Claremont in 2022. The Construction Authority board’s action will now be sent as official comments on the proposed Amendments. The Metro board is scheduled to hold a public hearing at their upcoming board meeting on June 27.

Clearman’s Galley is marking their 45th year with special offers for their many fans June 28-30. What started out as a mail-service vessel serving ports between San Francisco and Alaska became Clearman’s Galley in 1968 when owner John Clearman bought it and anchored it on Huntington Drive in San Gabriel to become a hamburger stand. The Galley soon sailed into the hearts of generations of food lovers who called it “The Boat.” The distinctive red-and-white hulled boat became an architectural landmark. The original hamburger stand with patio expanded with indoor seating and bigscreen TVs for sports night fun for all ages. The Boat offered a rousing good time until 2007 when it was temporarily closed to make way for new development. A double-sized Clearman’s Galley reopened in 2008 at 7215 N. Rosemead Blvd., San Gabriel, just a few feet from where it was originally anchored on Huntington Drive. Known for big portions, tangy red cabbage salad, and mouth-watering cheese bread, menu favorites are chili cheeseburgers,

the fried chicken dinner, hot wings, and The Boat’s signature items that include The Galley’s Loaded Fries and The Galley Captain’s Platter. The Boat has also started serving breakfast on Sunday mornings starting at 9 a.m. The breakfast menu includes breakfast burritos, pancakes, as well as hash browns, and other delicious breakfast items that change seasonally. The Boat is still the place the place to celebrate sports victories from t-ball to the World Series, from Pop Warner to The Super Bowl, from high school basketball to the Final Four. With 16 HD TV screens, Clearman’s Galley has plenty of room to “catch the big game.” The Galley is one of Clearman’s many familyfriendly restaurants: The

North Woods Inns in Covina, San Gabriel and La Mirada, and Steak ‘N Stein restaurant in Pico Rivera. The first 45 guests in the door those three days will receive a free gift. When guests buy one cheeseburger, they can get another for only 45 cents. All sodas will be 45 cents. Cocktail specials start at $4.50. Each customer will receive a free ticket for prize drawings that weekend. Clearman’s Galley, located at 7215 N. Rosemead Blvd., San Gabriel, is open Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.RE 9 p.m.; Friday, Saturday, 11 DU C a.m.-10 p.m.; Sunday,ED9PR a.m.I 10 p.m. It is closed onlyCE on Thanksgiving, Christmas and July 4th.

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.

Sierra Madre Middle School Continued from page 1

School campus, formerly Maranatha, that was razed and students still in portable classrooms three years later. The issue is particularly important to residents within Pasadena Unified School District and parents of students at the Sierra Madre Middle School campus who claim PUSD had not been transparent and has not been willing to work with those concerned. Originally torn down in 2010 the former Maranatha High School became a temporary classrooms that has taken the schools place located next to empty lot and sparked a controversial debate between concerned parents and the School district, Facing several roadblocks including budget shortfalls and construction delays the Sierra Madre community began to lose hope and more important-

ly trust in the School District Board. Mikala Rahna a Sierra Madre resident who was recently sworn in after winning appointment to a vacant PUSD board seat had been deeply frustrated as others in the community with the lack of cooperation and communication in the past with Facilities of PUSD. The school board also approved an extra $3.5 million from Measure TT contingency funds in the conceivable case construction costs go over budget. A strong alliance of parents joined forces and attended meetings regularly to keep them up to date and with state budget issues. Almost one year ago to the date, Melissa Castillo, parent and school site council co-chair spoke passionately to the committee about the group’s concerns of what essentially

was a stand-still project. Castillo urged the Subcommittee to “consider other elements” in the project last June. Supporting Castillo in her quest for answers from PUSD were Paula White and Gwen Hourihan, PTA/MSA Members. Citing that the children have been essentially “living in dirt” at the school site with only portables for the past three years, the parents’ frustration was finally recognized by the board of education. Sierra Madre’s new middle school will include 22 new classrooms, a science lab, library, gymnasium and cafeteria. The ground-breaking should take place during the first week of July. The school will be located at 160 North Canon, Sierra Madre. The Sierra Madre Weekly will be on hand for the long-awaited event.

Making A Difference, One At A Time . . .

As part of our continuing desire to focus on those in our community who care for unwanted animals, we are highlighting here the work that animal rescue organizations and individuals do in helping homeless pets find homes. Last month we featured the issue of feral cats, and the benefits of TNR (trap, neuter, release). This month we follow up with one feral cat'sjourney.

nie Li was never rushed. It was important to follow the cat's lead as to how much touching she would allow. Today, Annie Li is a little love! Sheʼs still the only cat in the house, and basks in attention! She loves to be held, is friendly to everybody, and even plays with a friend's dog. You would never know she had been feral. This cat, who would have been euthanized, and who was predicted to have “not a very long life,” is now 16 years old, and still loves to play chase, and hide and seek! Some feral cats can become a beloved household pet. It takes time, patience, and . . . it takes a rescuer.

Three stabbed, one beaten, suspect sought following fight between neighbors in Pasadena Sunday morning. The brawl which took place around 1 am was the result of an argument between neighbors who share a common driveway. According to Pasadena Police reports a 23-year-old

man suffered a stab wound to his buttocks, an 18-yearold man was stabbed in the lower back, a 32-year-old man was slashed on the cheek and a 37-year old was punched repeatedly in the face, knocking out sev-

Something--hard to say what--made Katherine decide to visit the cat area at the Humane Society that day. She had only intended to see the dogs, and was not at ALL thinking of getting a cat! However, she wandered into the cat area first. All the furry felines in those cages would tug at anyone's heart, but Katherine just browsed. Then-BANG! Without warning, she was suddenly looking into the most vivid blue eyes she had ever seen! These eyes belonged to a bedraggled female, chocolate point Siamese mix. Katherine felt an immediate connection. She was told, though, that the cat was underweight, definitely NOT friendly and definitely NOT adoptable. Saddened, Katherine left. However, for the next few days all she could think about was the intelligent look in those feral but gorgeous blue eyes. She decided to return to the Humane Society to learn more. The news was not

More from "Cousin" Pete

By Dorothy Denne Last week I wrote from one of my 'ancestor' cousin's PETE SEZ columns. He wrote it in August 1916 when postage stamps cost 2 cents. I'm either too young or too forgetul to remember 2 cent stamps but I do admit to remembering the penny postcard! Here are some more goodies from Pete written in 1916:

******** Printer's ink, when mixed with brains, has no limits to its gains; It spreads its story far and near, And business stirs throughout the sphere. But ink and type and paper fair Serve only thought and skill and care. ******** The men who do things are the men who realize that they can learn from everything and everybody. The men who know the least are the men who

think they know it all. ******** WHENEVER YOU ARE LOOKING FOR QUALITY AND EXCELLENCE YOU WILL FIND IT IN THE PLACES AND THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN AROUND A LONG TIME. THEY HAVE STOOD THE TEST OF TIME AND HAVE CONCENTRTED AND IMPROVED THEIR PRODUCT AND THEMSELVES. ******** Now that last one calls for the comment, "Good ol' cousin Pete."

Rep. Adam Schiff (DCA), a senior Member of the Intelligence Committee, issued the following statement in response to published reports that the U.S. may provide weapons to the Syrian opposition: “What began as an expression of the legitimate aspiration of the Syrian people for better governance has now become a sectarian civil war in which extremist forces like Hezbollah and Iran fight on one side, and groups linked to al Qaeda commit atrocities on the other. “I have grave concerns about the United States becoming an arms provider

in this civil war. Supplying small arms and ammunition to certain rebel elements may help to stabilize the situation on the battlefield in the near term, but it will not alter the strategic balance. If and when this proves to be insufficient to affect the outcome, we will undoubtedly be called upon to provide even more powerful weaponry, to establish a no fly zone, or to risk American lives. “The President is right to condemn the Assad regime's use of chemical weapons and we should work with the international community and Syrian opposition to degrade the regime's capacity

to utilize those weapons and hold those who have responsible as war criminals. We must also be unstinting in our support of our regional partners who are hosting hundreds of thousands of refugees, and provide humanitarian parole to the many Syrian refugees with family in the United States who have approved immigration petitions. Finally, we should remain focused on a political settlement. “Ultimately, this conflict cannot be solved by force, and we need to work to ensure that Geneva is the beginning of serious negotiations.”

Happy Birthday to our 'Social Columnist' Floretta Lauber Floretta is One in a Million Colleagues Say Stalwart Beacon Media social columnist, Floretta Lauber is celebrating a birthday this week. With boundless energy and her ever-present camera in-hand, Floretta has attended nearly every single community event, in not only Arcadia but all over the San Gabriel Valley since the birth of this newspaper in 1996. Floretta knows who to talk to and what to say (perhaps more importantly, what NOT

to say) in her ‘must-read’ column every-other week that keeps the community aware of what’s happening in their neck of the woods. As the first female Mayor in Arcadia several years ago, Floretta has made her mark not only in the community in which she lives and loves but the very core of this newspaper group now known as Beacon Media Inc. Floretta Lauber has

worn many hats over the years but perhaps her most passionate project, thus far, is that of the new Education Center at the Historical Museum which she hopes to break ground this summer. As the Museum Education Center’s Foundation President, Floretta has been working on the endeavor for 5 years now and raised over $500,000 thus far. Happy Birthday Floretta from your extended family at Beacon Media.

Brian Wilson and Jeff Beck to play the Greek Theatre with Al Jardine & David Marks

Brian Wilson -Photo by Terry Miller

Following the announcement that Jeff Beck is guesting on his upcoming Capitol Records studio album, Brian Wilson co-founder of The Beach Boys has announced that the guitar icon will be joining him at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, October 20th. Brian’s former band mates Al Jardine & David Marks fresh off last year’s successful Beach Boys’s 50th Anni-

versary tour will join Wilson and Beck for an evening of historical collaboration. “Jeff is one of the most amazing guitarists I’ve ever worked with and his vibe is inspiring” says Wilson. “I feel like this is a cool continuation of what we did last year with the exciting addition of Jeff Beck. We’ve got some new tunes we want to try out on a live crowd as well as doing some great music from our catalogues.” Wilson, Jardine and Marks will be diving into The Beach Boys rich catalogue and Beck will join them on some of his favorite Beach Boys songs as well as performing a jewel from Brian’s upcoming album. Beck will also be performing a set of his own classics with his stellar band. Wilson is one of popular music's most deeply revered figures, the main creative force behind some of the most cherished recordings in rock history. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to call Brian Wilson one of the most influential composers of the last century. Wilson was barely out of his teens when

he began to create some of the most beloved records ever... nine consecutive gold albums that featured such classics as "Surfer Girl," “In My Room,” “I Get Around,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” "Fun, Fun, Fun," “Help Me, Rhonda” and "California Girls"... just to name a handful of the more than two dozen Top 40 hits Brian co-wrote, arranged, produced and performed on with his family band, The Beach Boys. Known as one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock, Jeff Beck was ranked 5th in Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” He has earned wide critical praise and received the Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance six times and Best Pop Instrumental Performance once. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice; as a member of the Yardbirds (1992) and as a solo artist (2009). Jardine was originally The Beach Boys rhythm guitarist and middle-range harmony vocalist and is well known for his lead

vocal on the # 1 hit “Help Me Rhonda.” Continuing with his contributions to the Friends album, Jardine wrote or co-wrote a number of songs for The Beach Boys, varying in style from straight-ahead rockers like "Susie Cincinnati" to Wilsonesque mid-tempo harmony efforts like “Island Girl,” among others. David Marks was part of The Beach Boys line-up, at age 13, when they signed with Capitol Records in 1962. Marks performed on the band's first four albums, playing rhythm guitar and toured with the group. He most recently appeared last year on The Beach Boys album, ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio’ and 50th Anniversary tour. Tickets available at The Greek Theatre box office, online at Ticketmaster. com, at all Ticketmaster outlets or charge-by-phone at (800) 745-3000. All dates, acts and ticket prices subject to change without notice. A service charge is added to each ticket price. For more information, visit GreekTheatreLA.com.

LA Zoo’s Beastly Ball raises over $1,138,000

Kendrec McDade's mother Continued from page 1

she felt justice had been served for Oscar CarrilloGonzalez, who was sentenced Monday. The lie that Carrillo told ultimately led to her son’s death in March 2012. Anya Slaughter is dismayed however that the two police officers who shot her son to death in 2012 haven't faced any significant punishment. Attorney Galipo said “90 days is more than the officers involved in the shooting will ever see…” stating that he was satisfied that justice was served on the Carrillo aspect of the case. But his client clearly wants to pursue the civil case. “She very distraught…” Galipo said and confirmed that she’s still seeing a therapist in an effort to heal some of her anguish. Slaughter remains dedicated on her own pending civil case against the city of Pasadena according to her attorney Dale Galipo. The civil case might result in a multimillion dollar verdict, Slaughter's attorney Dale Galipo told Beacon Media Wednesday

morning. “Number one” Galipo said “is that officers know that not all ‘Gun calls’ actually involve a gun…and number two: the officers involved conceded that they did NOT see a gun in Kendrec McDade’’s hand. “We feel that the conduct of Mr. Carrillo is a secondary issue, and that Mr. Carrillo is being used as a scapegoat to try to shift blame away from the officers involved. We want the public to remain focused on the primary issues, including the conduct of the officers who shot Kendrec McDade and the epidemic of police violence generally.” Thomas C. Seabaugh, an attorney with the law offices of Dale Galipo said on Wednesday. The deposition will be held next month and trial date should then be set. Galipo said he believes the trial will take place within the next 9-12 months. “ No police officer has ever been jailed for a shooting in 20 years in Los Angeles County,” Galipo said and believes the city

of Pasadena will have to decide whether any juror would believe an unarmed man was shot to death lawfully in this civil case. The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office ruled the two officers acted lawfully, and an internal Pasadena Police Department investigation also found that they acted within policy. McDade, 19, was killed on March 24, 2012, by officers Mathew Griffin and Jeffrey Newlen, who were responding to an armed robbery call on Orange Grove Boulevard and began pursuing McDade.

Longtime L.A. Zoo supporter Betty White and "Hot in Cleveland" costar Valerie Bertinelli, writer Lisa Ling and comedian Jimmy Pardo, who handled the live auction were just part of the fun Saturday night at the 43rd Annual Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association’s Annual Soiree, The Beastly Ball. However, the real stars of the show are always the animals for whom the money is raised. From the endangered Condor to a California Brown Bear the zoo’s residents stole the show. One of the biggest stars of all, however was Dolly. The 2-year-old California condor, nurtured by

the Los Angeles Zoo since it rescued her for a wing surgery, seemed to relish her role Saturday as the nation's first official ambassador for the critically endangered vulture.

The Ball is GLAZA's biggest fundraiser of the year, with more than 1,000 people attending. This year's event raised $1,138,000, the organization said.

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.

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.

Leila Avila Sings for her Supper at Plate 38 Thursday

Imagine Peggy Lee, with perhaps some Ella Fitzgerald and a few other classic women in Jazz and you’ll begin to get where Leila Avila is coming from and where she’s heading. An old soul in a young, petite body will absolutely astound you as she does wherever she plays. Avila has already worked with Oingo Boingo, Quetzal and The Specials. She was also a backup vocalist for the popular Josh Groban when he appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno as well as The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Like her dad, Avila started music at a very tender age of around 5 years and added her voice for the children’s choir background vocals for some of Oingo Boingo’s recordings. By 11, she was playing piano and guitar as well as writing her own songs and music. Plate 38 is a place for magic not only in the kitchen but also on stage. Call for upcoming schedule or check their website. Leila will be playing from 8PM. Plate 38 _361 East Colorado Boulevard

MUSD still searching for superintendent By SHEL SEGAL The Monrovia Unified School District Board of Education is in the process of searching for a new superintendent and hopes to have an announcement on who that person is in the next few days. Board Member Rob Hammond said the body is currently making its final list of candidates. “What we’re doing is we’re having a special meeting this week and discussing the appointment of a superintendent,” Hammond said. Hammond said while many educators applied for the position, it is the board’s job to find the best candidate for the job. “There was a large pool of candidates,” he said. “The process is you have to go through each of these applications.” He added the district is moving at an appropriate

rate to find the next superintendent. “When the finalists are determined you are in closed session,” he said. “There are interviews conducted with each of the finalists. The reason why the interviews are conducted in closed session is to protect the privacy of the candidates. It’s a personnel thing.” The most important aspect the board is looking for in a superintendent, Hammond said, is that the person can excel at the secondary level. “The successful candidate will have a diverse background with all levels of K through 12 education with an emphasis on the high school level,” he said. In addition, Hammond said the new superintendent will have to carry the torch to further the district’s history of “excellence.”

“The next superintendent will be responsible for carrying on the tradition of academic and athletic excellence,” Hammond said. “As the test scores have continued to improve in the Monrovia Unified School District, we look forward to a culture that continues to see more of our students attend a four-year university and all forms of higher education.” Hammond also said the board values the educational services provided by the district in the city of Monrovia. “The Monrovia Unified School District Board of Education believes that so goes our schools, so goes our city,” he said. “So goes the high school, so goes the schools. It’s imperative we have a person in the superintendent’s chair who excels at the high school level.”

Arcadia father finally achieves college degree at 50 According to some of his professors, Cal State L.A.’s business management major William (Bill) Morales should be given the title of “father of the year.” Morales chose to put his higher education on hold, so he can support his family financially and educationally. At the time, he had only graduated from South Gate High School, but Morales did indeed understand the value of a higher education and encouraged others around him to go to college. Both his daughters have since graduated from CSU Fullerton and UC Davis, respectively. His wife earned her bachelor’s degree in political science and subsequently a Master of Science in Public Administration from Cal State L.A. Now, his son is completing his first year at Pitzer College. Over the years, he has been building upon his professional career, having been employed in various positions with Lockheed

Aeronautical, Art Center College of Design, Avid Technology and Panasonic. Morales eventually decided to go back to school and pursue a career in management. But, it was not a simple task. His previous academic credits were so outdated that they were not acceptable. However, with the moral support of his family as well as his personal efforts, Morales began the pursuit of his dream, a college degree at East Los Angeles City College, where he earned an associate degree in liberal arts before transferring to Cal State L.A. Eight years later, while working full-time, he is finally graduating this spring at age 50 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an option in operations management. He said, “Amazingly, the plan worked out as I was just promoted to executive director of post production at Fox NE&O. Having the degree was

most definitely a major benefit in being considered for this position as the company requires candidates to have experience with high level of business knowledge and education.” An Arcadia resident, he graduated with magna cum laude honors during the CSULA’s 66th annual Commencement this past Saturday.

Boy Scouts and VFW honor Old Glory in Monrovia

Smarter Balanced releases online practice tests for students by Anne Donofrio-Holter

Monrovia Boy Scouts Troop #185 presented the Colors and raised a new flag during Flag Day celebrations at Leven Oaks in Monrovia last Thursday. Although Flay Day was officially Friday, Leven Oaks – always a beat ahead of the pack – thought they’d start honoring Old Glory a day early. VFW Post 2027 demonstrated the 13 stations of correctly folding the flag. Councilman Tom Adams attended the ceremony and spoke briefly about the important work the VFW and Boys Scouts do every day of the year. -Photos by Terry Miller

Oscar Carrillo sentenced to jail Continued from page 1

the criminal case for the People. “We believe we reached an appropriate sentence that reflects the seriousness of the crime committed,” City Attorney/City Prosecutor Michele Beal Bagneris said. The false armed robbery call by Mr. CarrilloGonzalez set off a series of events that ultimately led to the death of then-suspect Kendrec McDade. Attorney for Kendrec McDade’s father Carre Harper said “Although he did not pull the trigger, he ( Carrillo) should have faced felony charges from the DA's office. They should have never dumped it into Ms. Shelton's lap. If a cop was killed following Carrillo's call the D.A. would have filed much more serious charges.” Harper added: “The recent slap on the wrist of Mr. Carrillo serves as yet another disappointment to

the McDade family following the failure of the District Attorney's office to charge him with a felony (or to charge Carrillo days before new DA Jackie Lacey took office). If a police officer would have died that night, no matter the method, Mr. Carrillo would have surely been charged by the DA with a serious felony whether the charge stuck or not. Mr. Carrillo was NOT the triggerman, and officers receive false calls daily, but Kendrec's life was just as important as a man in a suit, sweat pants or a uniform. As to Pasadena Police receiving $3078.00 in "VICTIM'S" restitution from Mr. Carrillo for investigating the shooting, it just seems wrong on so many levels in this particular case.” Carrillo-Gonzalez pled to one count of Penal Code Section 148.3(a) Making a False Report of Emergency

(to a 911 dispatcher) and one count of Penal Code Section 148.5(a) Making a False Report of Criminal Offense to a Peace Officer. Carrillo- Gonzalez was placed on 36 months of probation with the following terms: Serve 90 days in county jail Perform 90 days of Cal Trans in lieu of additional jail time; Pay $3,078.69 as victim restitution to the Pasadena Police Department; Pay court costs and fees; and Obey all laws. The Defendant was ordered by the Court to surrender himself to the Pasadena Branch of Los Angeles County Superior Court on June 27, 2013 to begin the county jail sentence. Carrillo may also be facing deportation after completing his sentence, according to ICE officials.

To help prepare students for the implementation of the Smarter Balanced Assessment System in the 2014-2015 school year, the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium has posted online practice tests aligned to the Common Core State Standards in English language arts/literacy and mathematics for grades three through eight. “Common Core defines the knowledge students should acquire at each grade level in English language arts and mathematics,” said El Monte Union High School District Superintendent Nick Salerno. “This will require higher order thinking skills as well as applications that include the use of data and technology.” According to Salerno, the practice test examples provide an early look at next-generation assessments aligned to the Common Core and provide a preview of the types of questions that will be featured on the summa-

tive assessment beginning in 2014. He encourages teachers, parents and students to take a look at what is expected for 2014-2015 school year. “The practice tests allow teachers and students to experience the higher level of rigor associated with Common Core tests and gain familiarity with the online test delivery system,” said Deborah Sigman, Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction for the California Department of Education and Smarter Balanced Executive Committee Co-Chair. “The El Monte Union High School District is committed to ensuring our curriculum reflects the knowledge and skills our students will need in the real world,” said Salerno. “Common Core requires more rigor from students and require students to apply their knowledge in different settings and scenarios.” The practice tests are freely available on the

Smarter Balanced website at http://www.smarterbalanced.org/practice-test/. According to State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, “the Common Core State Standards Systems Implementation Plan for California will take our state’s already world-class standards to a new level, emphasizing a deep understanding of English language arts and mathematics to ensure our students complete high school, ready to thrive in college and careers.” “As our students face a constantly changing world, we want to insure they graduate high school with the real world skills they will need to succeed in college and the workplace,” added Salerno. “Common Core is, in essence, a shift to 21st century skills that promote college and career readiness and success.” For more information, visit www.smarterbalanced.org.

Recycle Used Oil & Filters! Do you change your car’s motor oil? Did you know that used motor oil and oil filters are recyclable? Used oil can be re-refined or processed into new motor oil. Currently only 46% of used motor oil is being recycled, which means 20 million gallons may be illegally entering California’s waterways via stormwater systems, posing a great risk to the environment. One gallon of used oil can contaminate a million gallons of drinking water; polluting our waterways and threaten fish and aquatic life. Prevent pollution; recycle used motor oil and filters!

Open House – Meet police flight crew fight who fight crime from above - June 29 The Pasadena Police Department’s Air Operation Section is hosting their annual Benedict Heliport Open House on Saturday, June 29.. The public is invited to attend this event which runs from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at 2175 Yucca Lane, Altadena (Located just off the 210 Freeway at the Arroyo / Windsor Exit). “We are excited to open our doors and increase the public’s awareness and education about airborne law enforcement,” says Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez. “The Section has a proud history of crime fighting and providing public safety services. We want the public to know what we do and why Air

Support and the Special Operations community are so critical to our mission in today’s world.” To showcase the Police Department’s special operations capabilities, SWAT, K9 and motorcycle displays and demonstrations will begin at 11:30am. Personnel from Employment Services, Forensics, Traffic, and Community Services will be on hand to answer questions and meet the public. Food and drinks will be provided. Free parking is available along the street and in the heliport parking lot. Overflow parking located in the lot at the northwest corner of Arroyo Blvd and Weimar Street.

Governor Brown, business leaders and workers call for action on economic development plan 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 thirtyyear-old 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 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 Califor-

nia $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.

Home prices have soared nearly 29 percent By SHEL SEGAL The real estate market in California is moving once again with the median home price for single family residences now above $400,000 in April for the first time in many years, according to a report published by the California Association of Realtors. The median home price in the state is now $402,760. That is up from $378,960, or 6.3 percent, from a month earlier, according to the report. But even more astonishing is the fact that home prices have soared nearly 29 percent since a year ago in April 2012. At that time the median home price statewide was $312,500, according to the report. In addition, sales of homes were up 1.3 percent in April over a month earlier. However, most like due to the increase in price, sales were down over the previous year 3.7 percent, according to the report.

Looking at the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area, the median home price for single family residences crept over the $370,000 mark in April, up nearly 28 percent from a year earlier when it sat just under $290,000. It was also up 5 percent over March’s amount of $352,510, according to the report. Sales were also higher than a year ago, increasing 2.2 percent, and were higher than the previous month, rising a whopping 6 percent in one month, according to the report. Houses statewide are also on the market fewer days than they were a year ago, down from 48 days to about 28 days, according to the report. In the LA area, those numbers change from 54.8 to 35.2. Ray Wells, a real estate agent with Teles Properties who does a lot of business in San Gabriel, said it’s just old fashioned economics driving the market.

“We’re seeing such limited inventory,” Wells said. “It’s a situation where the sellers who couldn’t sell a couple of years ago because of being upside down definitely can now. It’s amazing how fast it’s happened, but it’s truly supply and demand.” But he said there are other factors at work as well. “Along with lower interest rates, you’re also seeing Pacific Rim money coming into play,” Wells said. “They’re seeing the United States as being a safe place to put their money and it’s good for our economy.” In addition, Wells said the rapid rise in prices shouldn’t look troublesome to anyone. “It’s not like last time where you had people getting unqualified loans,” he said. “These are qualified people getting qualified loans. I don’t believe we’re looking at a bubble here.”

Los Angeles Superior Court budget cuts affect 431 Los Angeles Superior Court Presiding Judge Lee Smalley Edmon announces that “431 court employees will be adversely affected as reductions in state financial support for the California judicial branch force us to cut our budget by $30 million.” These actions will affect nearly 1 of every 10 employees of LASC, the largest trial court in the nation. The latest cuts are part of an ongoing series of reductions that began in April of 2010 and that will continue. The reductions made to date already saved $70 million. The current actions will save another $30 million. Despite these cuts, the Court faces future additional shortfalls as more reductions in state support for the trial courts are proposed for the Fiscal Year 2012-13 budget. As of this writing, the state budget is not yet finished, but the Governor’s May Revision proposes to reduce judicial branch funding by another $544 million, and to eliminate the ability of the courts to use or maintain reserves as bridge funding to delay the impacts of cuts. LASC will likely face additional mandatory reductions of more than $40 million during the next fiscal year. “Because the California trial courts are state funded, our Court has become a casualty of the state budget crisis,” noted Edmon. “We have blunted the impacts of the cuts through the use of locally held reserves,” said Edmon. “But we cannot do that indefinitely – especially if those reserves are swept, as is being considered in the current budget talks. Our Court is in the midst of a series of painful and wrenching reductions that must ulti-

mately bring services in line with significant reductions in state funding.” According to Assistant Presiding Judge David Wesley, “There will be more cuts next year, and their impacts will be severe. The current cuts already affect the core work of court – the judge in the courtroom – while significant budget shortfalls remain. Given the significance of our responsibilities to protect public safety and children, the next round of reductions will further limit our ability to hear civil cases.” Across-the-board cuts will eliminate 341(corrected) positions in four areas, totaling $30 million in ongoing savings: •Eliminating courtroom staffing in 56 courtrooms will save $6.8 million, a change that affects courtrooms in civil (24 courtrooms affected), criminal (24), family law (3), probate (1) and juvenile (4). The changes to the affected courtrooms have been underway for the past several weeks; they are already being felt across the county. •Eliminating the Court’s innovative Informal Juvenile Traffic courts will save $4.8 million and will result in the closure of 11 additional courtrooms. •Reducing court reporter services will save $10.3 million. These changes began affecting civil courtrooms on May 15, when court-employed reporters were no longer available for civil trials. • Eliminating 110 management, clerical and administrative positions outside of the courtrooms will save $8.2 million. These impacts will be felt across the Court, from clerk’s windows across the county, to

central administrative functions. Altogether, these cuts will impact 431 court staff: • 157 people are being laid off, • 108 people will lose 40% of their salaries when they are moved to a threeday-per-week schedule, •86 people will lose between 5% and 40% of their salary when they are reclassified to lower-level positions, •80 people are being transferred to new jobs, and typically new locations, because their old jobs have been eliminated. Notices to affected employees are being handdelivered tomorrow. Those laid off will be given two weeks’ paid administrative leave, during which time they may attend Court-provided workshops on postemployment benefit issues. By tomorrow, the LASC will have reduced the number of budgeted positions by 23% since 2002. “We are in the midst of a fundamental restructuring of the California courts,” notes John A. Clarke, the Executive Officer and Clerk of Court. “But the final outcome is difficult to manage, and impossible to predict, due to the speed and severity of the budget cuts being forced upon us. “Legislators and the Governor are restructuring how California addresses corrections, public education, and welfare and health services. Our court is swept up in these catastrophic changes,” said Clarke. “The commitment of our judicial officers and staff to preserve access to justice is unwavering, but our ability to follow through on that commitment may soon be exhausted,” he said.

Sierra Madre water restrictions Continued from page 1

rainfall, restrictions to the City’s adjudicated right to pump water, lower than normal spreading of water at the city’s spreading basins, and increased consumption by the city’s water customers.” Some of the water restrictions include prohibiting washing sidewalks, driveways or parking areas with a water hose, prohibiting restaurants from serving water to customers without their request and prohibiting the watering of lawns between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., according

to the city’s website. One Sierra Madre resident who is upset with the city is longtime resident John Govorchin, Govorchin watched the meeting on television and said the city of Sierra Madre is to blame for having the conservation measures. “Who’s the major water user in the city? The city is and they’re trying to pin it on the people?” Govorchin said. Govorchin added the city is in the hot seat for the current predicament. “It’s their own fault,” he

said. “It’s the mismanagement of the supplies. The basic fault lies with the city, not only today but for many, many years. It’s poor planning. What’s more important, to buy water or buy a new fire engine?” In addition, Govorchin said there needs to be new strategies implemented by the city to prevent this from happening again. “Unless there’s some change in thinking, there won’t be a change in how it’s supposed to be,” he said.

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 the 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 same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on a property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco. com, using the file number assigned to this case TS No. 12-0027078.

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 the 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 same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call, 1-800-280-2832 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site, www.auction. com, for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to

this case, T.S.# 9526-2535. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.
