On June 25, 2013, at about 1:38 PM, the Police Department received 9-1-1 calls with people reporting shots fired in the area of Lovell Avenue just south of Duarte Road. Witnesses reported that the suspect and victim vehicles left the area. A vehicle window had been shot out. Officers responded to the area and confirmed that a shooting had taken place. The male adult victim later returned to the scene of the shooting. The victim said that he had been standing on the east sidewalk and the suspect stopped his vehicle on Lovell Avenue. The victim and suspect exchanged words, and the victim thought the suspect was about to shoot at him. The victim ducked, the suspect shot at him, and the victim’s vehicle was struck. The victim was not hit by the shots.

Local democratic legislators express severe dissatisfaction Rep. Adam Schiff (DCA) joined the Democratic chorus Wednesday voicing outrage at the Supreme Court decision that Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act cannot be enforced unless Congress comes up with an up-to-date formula for deciding which states and localities still need federal monitoring: “I’m deeply disappointed that a narrow 5-4 majority of the Supreme Court struck down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act today. The fact that Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act has been an effective tool to protect voting rights is a reason to let it stand, not to end it. I was a member of the House Judiciary Committee in 2006 when we undertook a bipartisan reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act by carefully calibrating the preclearance requirement to states and localities with histories of voting discrimination. “In the wake of the Court’s decision today, Congress must again take up the Voting Rights Act to update the Section 4 coverage formula and ensure that the right of all Americans to participate in the democratic process – regardless of race or ethnicity – is protected.” Assembly member Chris Holden said “I am disappointed by today’s Supreme Court Decision to invalidate the formula used to assess states’ and counties’

DOMA is unconstitutional the Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday morning. Years of protests and events such as this one in Arcadia finally tipped the scales in favor of same sex marriage. People throughout the United States are saying this is a major victory for not only gay rights but Human Rights. -Photo by Terry Miller

BY TERRY MILLER Wednesday the United States Supreme Court ruled that the Defense of Mar-

riage Act (DOMA) is unconstitutional by violating an individual’s due process and equal protection rights. The Court’s decision to va-

cate the Ninth Circuit’s ruling on Proposition 8, while not a definitive outcome, will still allow same-sex marriage to continue in the

Pasadena taking a hard line on possession and use of fireworks By Shel Segal

hoping that their efforts will defer future residents from falling to the same demise. The bridge is expected to become home to optimistic signs such as “There is hope” and “You are not alone” as well as other helpful outlets such as suicide prevention hotline numbers. City of-

The Pasadena Police and Fire departments want to remind everyone that the use of fireworks in that city on Independence Day is illegal. Instead, they urge you to attend a public fireworks display, like the one that is being held at the Rose Bowl on the evening of July 4. Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez said the city will be taking a hard line on the possession and usage of fireworks. “Fireworks will be seized. People will be issued citations and those cases will be submitted to the city attorney’s office for consideration of prosecution,” Sanchez said. “Independent fireworks are not legal and they’re not welcome in the city of Pasadena.” Sanchez added he is asking the public to be

vigilant in protecting everyone’s safety this Independence Day. “If you see something suspicious, please call the Pasadena police department, 911 or the non-emergency number at 744-4241,” he said. “Let the police department see and have the opportunity to investigate them.” Fire Chief Calvin Wells said the hot weather expected for the Independence Day weekend is not good for those who use fireworks. “Fire season is an allyear-round event here in Southern California,” Wells said. “Currently, we are experiencing drought-like conditions in our foothills. The Fourth of July weekend will be hot and dry which creates high fire dangers and concerns throughout the region.” He added they are very dangerous to use and are not worth the effort.

“We are concerned with the usage of fireworks this time of year all fireworks are illegal in Pasadena,” Wells said. “Often times you hear the words ‘safe and sane.’ There is nothing safe not sane about fireworks. Fireworks are made to burn very rapidly or to explode. They are inherently dangerous. The best thing is to leave fireworks to the professionals.” In addition, Wells said if you use fireworks you will have to suffer the consequences. “The city of Pasadena will uphold a zero tolerance policy with regards to fireworks throughout the city,” Wells said. Wells also said the risk of injury for children ages 5 through 14 doubles for those who use fireworks. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

Sierra Madre’s 8U Softball All Stars take SoCal ASA Community by storm For the first time ever, Sierra Madre’s 8U Gold All Star team, aptly named Gold Lightning due to weather conditions during an early season practice, has taken home championships from two of five softball tournaments in which it competed, while getting to the semi-finals in others. Several weeks ago, Sierra Madre’s Gold Lightning took home impressive first place hardware from the Carlsbad Seabreeze Tournament after winning five games in single elimination. This weekend, Sierra Madre clinched the 2013 Southern California ASA 8U All Star Northern B District Championship and qualified to advance to the Southern erra Madre a second time.

bases in the fourth and fifth innings behind strong defensive plays by Jessica Mysza, Carly Ruiz, Tiara Westbrook and Avery Bogue. Time was running out as they headed into the sixth and final inning. Charter Oak got a runner on with an error, but Sierra Madre proceeded to dust the last three batters on a fly out to 3rd baseman, Brianne Kang, a sacrifice bunt fielded by Avery Bogue and the last of ten game strikeouts by ace pitcher Bogue. Sierra Madre had their work cut out for them as they entered the bottom of the sixth, behind 2-1. Leadoff batter, Jessica Mysza, got to first on a “hit by pitch”, then stole second base. This seemed to rattle the Charter Oak crew as Tiara Westbrook reached first base on an error. Cleanup batter, Bogue, stepped up with a shot to the outfield that scored Mysza and Westbrook to take the lead 3-2. Megan “Boom Boom” Underbrink, who showcased her strength at the plate during the Carlsbad Tournament, came up last, hitting a hard

ground ball down the third base line which was bobbled by the third baseman, scoring Bogue. Time called. Game over. Sierra Madre wins the District Championship 4-2. The team has a magic number. It’s 13. If they can get on base at least 13 times via hits, walks, errors, hit batters, catcher interference or Act of God, they can generally win. They strive for lucky number 13. While they missed their magic number in this last game, only reaching 12, they outdid their opponent who only got to 6. It’s the sheer will to win and the heart of this team that has turned them into the powerhouse that they are in the six short weeks they’ve been playing together as a team. The team is coached by Darnell Westbrook, Candido Gamez, Marty Moreno and Andi Mysza, and assisted by an incredible group of parents who help at their three weekly practices, keep score, photograph games, and plan out its always favorite “snack.” Everyone is involved.

Dorothy's Place Meaningless

By Dorothy Denne I was sitting in snarled traffic, half listening to Frank Sinatra singing I Did It My Way on a station playing oldies but goodies. My mind flitted from thought to meaningless thought as the car now and then inched forward. I had a deadline fast approaching for submission of my column and I had not a clue of what to write about. My eyes scanned the area for possible subject matter. There were the usual sights -- phones to ears, rearview mirror makeup touch ups, a couple of kids fighting in a back seat, a fellow picking his nose and a pedestrian about to cross the street.

I saw the pedestrian as a potential subject but the traffic was so snarled that he made it across six lanes, against a red light, without incident. I glanced over at the car next to me. It was occupied by a lone driver with a most distressed expression on his face. I chuckled to myself, "I bet he has to go the bathroom." I don't know what the connection was but he reminded me of a time years ago when I was standing in lne at a deli-restaurant. The line was long and slow moving. I was turned, relating to my husband and teen aged nephew how there was often a line even before the new non-smoking area had been designated, and a roof leak had caused one area to be cordoned off. The guy behind them growled, "You don't have to come here, you know." I just kind of froze for a second,

mid-sentence. Then I made eye contact with my nephew and I blurted a giggle. He joined me. My husband grinned but was not so obvious. The poor guy behind mumbled, "God I hate people who bitch all the time." I wonder, could that be him in the car next to me? The light was to turn green, then red, then green again before I was able to cross the intersection and eventually make my way past the big arrow with the flashing yellow light bulbs that was changing the course of traffic. Plenty of time for Sinatra to finish his song and for Kenny Rogers, as the Gambler, to tell me, "You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em." and to "Never count your money when the cards are on the table." I still didn't have a subject but I had enough meaningless thoughts to ramble through a meaningless column and meet my deadline.

Letter to the Editor Send your letters to tmiller@beaconmedianews.com Dear Editor: The Arcadia Public Library claims to provide wi-fi service to its patrons. In fact what it provides is unending frustration. The wi-fi service is constantly in a non-operational mode, or in a state of flux between testing and connecting to the internet. Students as well as adult patrons have abandoned the library due to this fact. Wi-fi is a much used technology in this day and age. If a library

does not have this service, or if they have a service that proves to be dysfunctional this hurts not only that library but those who are desirous of using its resources. Also it makes no sense to me why the main equipment for the library's wi-fi service should be located at city hall, no associate of the library has access to that equipment to help maintain it not to mention that the signal now has to travel from

city hall to the library causing an appreciable loss of signal strength in route. The library associates get frustrated at patrons who complain about the poor wi-fi service but those at that desk do very little else than shrug off those patrons. All of this in combination sounds like a waste of money as well as a waste of library patrons’ time and expectation. Name withheld by request

All fireworks illegal in the city of Arcadia Arcadia Municipal Code 3124.8: No person shall use, light, fire, discharge, explode, set off, sell, display for sale, possess, store, or manufacture any fireworks, including so-called “Safe and Sane” fireworks, anywhere within the City except as provided by the Municipal Code and approved by the Fire Chief. “Safe and Sane” fireworks are neither safe nor sane. When things go wrong with fireworks, they typically go very wrong, very fast. Each July 4th, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using consumer fireworks. Despite the dangers of fireworks, few people understand the associated risks - devastating burns, other injuries, fires, and even death. In 2011, 9,600 fireworks-related injuries were treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms. Eight out of nine (89%) emergen-

cy room fireworks injuries involved fireworks that Federal regulations permit consumers to use. Sparklers,

fountains, and novelties alone accounted for onethird (34%) of emergency room fireworks injuries.

Disaster communications service sends data without internet Members of the Los Angeles County Disaster Communications Service met at Temple Station to practice sending data without the use of the internet and without the use of any infrastructure. Members of the City of Rosemead staff also participated in the demonstration and training on using open source software that allows error free communication of data without the need for internet infrastructure or network switching equipment. Disaster Communication service volunteers from

San Dimas, Temple City, Rosemead, and Pasadena gathered at Temple Station to practice and gain valuable experience. Most used battery power for their computers and battery powered radios to send messages during the training. The messages consisted of message types used in the national Incident Command System to request support, report damage, and provide health and welfare traffic, again without the use of the internet or telephone. The communications

were accomplished via the use of the Amateur Radio Service and the Narrow Band Emergency Messaging Software (NBEMS) this software is capable of running on various computing platforms and operating systems making it easy to implement especially in a disaster Most of the Disaster communications Service volunteers were able to install and use the system in less than an hours time. But it is an important aspect of disaster preparedness to train in order to ensure a good result in real world applications.

The Never-cashed $2 Checks By Fran Syverson with even the $2, so I just never cashed them." Not that Bill was without money in those Depression days, for—like most of us—he was no stranger to work. He had a paper route and sold Saturday Evening Post and Collier's magazine subscriptions. He mowed lawns and spaded gardens. His cushiest job, though, was working at the Dodge Theater in our small town, Dodgeville, Wisconsin. As ushers, he and his buddies got to see the movies free. He also cleaned the theater every day, and changed the marquee between movies. For that he earned a magnificent $3 a week. Parenthetically, his check was for only $2.97. Why? Because, Bill explained, Social Security had just come in, and 3 cents were deducted from his pay. The days are long past when Bill could have used his birthday and Christmas gift money. He remained in his hometown where he became the owner of a lumber company and a highly successful builder of homes. But he keeps the checks stuck

over his desk as a reminder of the time when a total of $4 was a small fortune for a teenager - but a teenager who already knew the value of that money and what it meant to his family by his not spending it. These days when people moan about the "hard

times" we're in, and wonder whether things have ever been so bad, Bill remembers those gifts from his loving parents and says, "Yes, I remember; I remember when times were really hard." And he gently sets the bills back onto his desk.

Heat Advisory Issued for Los Angeles County and San Gabriel Valley The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the San Gabriel Valley from later this week well into next week, extending possibly until Jul 4 with temperatures likely exceeding 100 degrees.

"I guess I'll never cash these checks now," said my longtime friend Bill. One look, and I had to agree with him. In his hands were two yellowed checks for $2 each, made out to Bill. They were slightly wrinkled and very fragile looking. One was dated March 15, 1937; the other, December 24 of the same year. Bill had never cashed them and, indeed, they'd been stashed away in a drawer many years ago and totally forgotten. In the late '60s they surfaced again when Bill's mother died and the family was going through her belongings. "But why?" I asked him. "Why didn't you cash them? Couldn't you have used the money?" Back in 1937, money was scarce. I persisted. "Did you somehow lose them when you were a kid?" Quietly, almost shyly, my friend replied. "My dad gave me this one," he said, "for my 15th birthday. The second one was for Christmas. But we were deep into the Depression back then. I knew my folks couldn't afford to part

In almost all cases: No. Many young people are trapped in a debt cycle that starts with student loan repayment. Helping a loved one pay for higher education is a generous, life affecting act and there are several paths to do so tax free. The most straight forward way is to simply write out a check directly to the university. And then another one to the student book store, her sorority, his haberdasher . . . This could become a perilous road if expectations are not set beforehand. Another possible route is to make use of the $14,000 per year gift tax exemption. If your spouse is on board, then up to $28,000 could be gifted directly to the student. This would cover most col-

lege tuitions. For more expensive institutions, you can start a Section 529 college savings account in advance. The IRS allows you to place gifts into a 529 fund that can be removed with accrued interest tax free, but only for specific higher education expenses. Do you have excess cash and are not one to plan ahead? How fortunate! You may put up to five years' worth of annual gifts ($70,000) into a 529 plan in one year for the benefit of a specific person. However if you have the misfortune to die before those five years are up, part of that money may have to be returned to your estate and any interest earned could be subject to taxation. Also, if the prospective student decides not to attend college, that money can be used elsewhere but may be subject to taxes and penalties. Please know that funds put into 529 accounts are not tax deductible. Although earnings from qualified withdrawals from these accounts are free from federal taxation, they may be subject to state taxes - but not in California. Finally, grad students

can borrow $20,500 a year from Uncle Sam at 6.8%. The Bank of Grandma can lend $10,000 or more if you charge the minimum IRSset interest rate of 2.9% for a nine year loan*. Set interest rates are lower for shorter repayment terms. This option may instill a greater sense of financial responsibility in the receiver as opposed to a straight out gift. Please be sure to put the interest rate and the repayment terms in writing. This can help avoid future squabbles. I will end this week’s column with my usual disclaimer: before making any important financial decisions, please speak to your Certified Financial Planner or qualified tax advisor. * http://www.irs.gov/pub/ irs-drop/rr-13-12.pdf Securities and advisory services offered through NATIONAL PLANNING CORP (NPC) member FINRA, SIPC, a Registered Investment Adviser.

An investor should consider the investment objectives, risks, changes and expenses associated with 529 plans before investing. Please read the official statement carefully before investing.

Summertime…and the living is easy in Temple City and San Gabriel By Shel Segal As summer has descended upon Southern California, at least two San Gabriel Valley cities have extensive parks and recreation programs for kids of all ages. Both Temple City and San Gabriel are offering activities for everyone to enjoy this summer. “We have a lot of activities,” said Juan Pasillas, senior leader with Temple City’s parks and recreation department. “I’m excited about our trips this year. We’re going to Sea World. We haven’t been there for a while.” Two other programs Temple City is holding its Extreme Camp and Teen Zone, which are continuing through the summer. “It’s a lot of fun,” Pasillas said. “We have a large enrollment. We usually get around 100 to 150 kids.” Frances Manzo-Pimentel, parks and recreation supervisor in Temple City, said there is a lot to do this summer. “It keeps us on our toes,” Manzo-Pimentel said about being so busy this season. “It’s our busiest time. When

the teachers are on their summer break we put the pedal to the floor.” One other activity for the entire family that Temple City offers is its summer concerts series, Manzo-Pimentel said. “We have the longestrunning series in the San Gabriel Valley,” she said. “It’s a 12-week series where other cities usually only have six to nine weeks.” Temple City is also offering Summer Youth programs for boys and girls for 10 weeks through August and will be hosting “Campapalooza.” “Local residents have the opportunity to come out and camp here instead of in the wilderness,” Manzo-Pimentel said. “They can come out here and camp at Live Oak Park.” In San Gabriel, Nancy Hogan, assistant director for the San Gabriel Parks and Recreation Department, said her city is gearing up for Independence Day. “Our biggest event is the Fourth of July,” Hogan said. “We have a parade that morning that starts the mis-

sion and ends at Smith Park – near Broadway and Del Mar Avenue – where there’ll be a barbecue and entertainment, games and an honor wall that honors San Gabriel’s veterans.” All summer long there will also be playground programs at four of San Gabriel’s parks and schools, Hogan said. “It’s a drop-in program where kids can come and go play on equipment,” Hogan said. “There’s a free lunch.” Also at Smith Park will be swimming lessons and recreational swimming, in addition to aquaaerobics for adults. “People will have fun getting out and getting to know their neighbors in the community and maybe renew some acquaintances and even learn something and have fun,” Hogan said. “You can’t underestimate fun.” For information in Temple City, call (626) 285-2171, and for information in San Gabriel, call (626) 305-2800.

Telescope Implant for Macular Degeneration Now Available in Southern California New Medicare Covered Treatment

Imagine the heartbreak for someone who gradually loses the ability to see her grandchildren, husband, and the people who mean the most to her. Now imagine her joy when she can see them again. Thanks to a groundbreaking new treatment program called CentraSight®, this dream can now be a reality for patients around the country with end-stage age related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness in older Americans. More than 15 million Americans are affected by some form of macular degeneration, a progressive disease that can lead to severe vision loss in its most advanced form, end-stage AMD. The number is expected to double with the rapid aging of the U.S. population. Macular Degeneration attacks the macula of the eye, where one’s sharpest central vision occurs. Although it does not cause complete blindness, patients with end-stage AMD have a central blind spot, or missing area, in their vision. This vision loss makes it difficult or impossible to see faces, read, and

perform everyday activities such as watching TV, preparing meals, and selfcare. For many people, the first sign of AMD is something they notice “Today, I saw my themselves. Straight lines like doorways or telephone wires may appear wavy grandson walk.” or disconnected. When they look at someone, their face may be blurred while the rest is in focus.

Pesticide treatment scheduled to combat Asian Tiger Mosquito infestation in the San Gabriel Valley

In an ongoing effort to control an infestation of Asian tiger mosquitoes in El Monte and South El Monte, the Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District and the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito & Vector Control District will again collaborate to conduct truck-mounted mosquito control treatments in residential neighborhoods. The larvicide applications will target immature mosquitoes in standing water sources. During the early morning hours of Thursday, June 27, 2013 between midnight and approximately 5:00 a.m., the districts will apply VectoBac WDG by truck mounted fogger as a low-volume mist. The active ingredient in VectoBac WDG is a biological larvicide called Bti (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis) and is one of the safest mosquito control products on the market. This non-toxic formulation specifically targets immature mosquitoes and is certified for use on organic crops. The product will be mixed with water and applied as a mist to allow it to carry into hidden backyard standing water sources. The treatment will be conducted during the overnight hours to avoid traffic and outdoor pedestrian activity. Alternate arrangements may be made if weather conditions are not favorable to effective treatment. The area scheduled for treatment is in portions of El Monte and South El Monte. An interactive Google map of this area can be found at: http://goo.gl/maps/E0KE6. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers Bti products to be non-toxic with no or minimal potential risk to people and other animals. It is not re-

quired that residents take any special precautions; however, people are advised to avoid outdoor activities during the treatment period. Additional information about this product can be found at www. publichealth.valentbiosciences.com. Both agencies are committed to eradicating this dangerous, invasive mosquito from Los Angeles County. This is one more tool vector control districts can use to target this mosquito before it has a chance to reproduce and spread. The Asian tiger mosquito can be identified by its unique size, color, and feeding habits. The mosquito is approximately ¼ inch long and has distinctive black and white stripes across its body and legs. This is an aggressive day-time biting mosquito that can transmit the viruses that cause dengue, chikungunya, and encephalitis. CALL AND REPORT IMMEDIATELY if you see any small, black and white mosquitoes or if you are being bitten by mosquitoes during the day! Follow these steps to keep the Asian tiger mosquito from breeding around your home: • Search for and discard any containers, cans, buckets, old tires, and trash around • the home. Store items in a covered area or indoors to prevent water from • accumulating. • Drill drain-holes in tubs, containers, trash cans, and tire swings that must be kept • outdoors. • Look closely under all bushes and behind walls for trash, plastic bags, tarps or • children's toys that

may collect water. Discard or store them indoors. • Store recyclables inside covered trashcans or sealed plastic bags • Remove any water saucers from beneath potted plants and drill drain holes in all • decorative flower pots. • Do not store water in uncovered buckets or rain barrels. Ensure rain barrels are • completely sealed to prevent mosquitoes from entering. • Empty bird baths and small fountains completely or clean them thoroughly every • 3 days. Request FREE mosquitofish for ponds or larger fountains. • Clean out rain gutters and lawn drains to ensure water does not collect. • Water plants at the soil level. Water that collects in the leaves and axils of plants • will breed mosquitoes. • Spread the word! Talk to your neighbors about preventing mosquitoes from • breeding Both agencies are available for presentations and community events. Service groups, scouts, Homeowners Associations, and Neighborhood Watch groups are encouraged to get involved. Contact us to see how you can help!

Supreme Court says stop the hate – No more Prop 8

Continued from page 1

today has made same-sex marriage a reality in California. In light of the decision, I have directed the California Department of Public Health to advise the state’s counties that they must begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in California as soon as the Ninth Circuit confirms the stay is lifted,” said Governor Brown. The effect of today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling is that the 2010 federal district court’s decision that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional is left intact and the law cannot be enforced. Reaction has seen swift in southern California. In response, the Governor has directed the California Department of Public Health to advise county officials today that the district court’s injunction against Proposition 8 applies statewide and that all county clerks and county registrar/ recorders must comply with it. However, same-sex Californians will not be able to marry until the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals confirms the stay of the injunction, which has been in place throughout the ap-

peals process, is lifted. In preparation for this outcome, Governor Brown sought an opinion from California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris on whether the state, through the California Department of Public Health, can advise county clerks and reg-

“Huge Day for Equality” -Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank)

istrar/recorders that they are bound by the federal district court’s ruling that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional. The Attorney General concluded that the California Department of Public Health “can and should” instruct county officials that they “must resume issuing marriage licenses to and recording the marriages of same-sex” couples. The Department will issue another letter to county officials as soon as the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals confirms the stay is lifted. On Wednesday, Rep.

Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) told Beacon Media: “Today is a huge day for the cause of equality – by ruling that DOMA is an unconstitutional violation of equal protection, the Court has struck a momentous blow against discrimination and injustice, bringing us closer to our founding principle that all people are created equal. By dismissing the Prop 8 case, the Court has returned marriage equality to California. It’s my hope that clerks will begin issuing marriage licenses to those loving couples wishing to get married as soon as possible. “Love is love, and the fight will not be over until equality under the law – including the right to marry the person you love – is the law of the land in every state in the nation.” Schiff is an original cosponsor of the Respect for Marriage Act, which would require recognition of any marriage performed in any state under federal law, including that of LGBT Americans. He supports full equality for all LGBT Americans to enjoy all the rights and privileges of our

nation. Schiff also fought to stop House Republicans from defending DOMA in court – ultimately spending $2.3 million defending an unconstitutional law. Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27) released the following statement: “Today is a pivotal day in the fight for equality for the LGBT community. In striking down DOMA, the

Supreme Court ensured that individuals will no longer face discrimination under federal laws based on whom they marry. “Though I would have preferred to see Proposition 8 ruled unconstitutional as well, the fact is same-sex couples are free to marry their loved ones in California, and ultimately that is what is most im-

portant. “While this is a great first step, the decisions only apply to those lucky enough to be in states that currently allow for samesex marriages. It is clear that to truly create equality for all Americans under the law, gay and lesbian couples must be free to marry, regardless of where they live.”

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.

Arcadia woman arrested following lengthy pursuit through the San Gabriel Valley Saturday evening Jennifer McElhaney of Arcadia was arrested and booked with a $130,500 bail on suspicion of auto theft. McElhaney, 25 led police on a high speed chase with speeds surpassing 100 miles per hour through the San Gabriel Valley lasting over an hour. McElhaney was spotted leaving a CVS Pharmacy in a reportedly stolen car and when police attempted to make a traffic stop on the vehicle she fled

By Emani Payne the scene. It was quite the cat and mouse game as according to San Gabriel police reports “The chase reached speeds in excess of 100 mph at times as McElhaney led officers down the 10, 101, 110 and 210 Freeways to Pasadena, McElhaney then headed east on the 210 Freeway, exited Vernon Avenue in Azusa and continued on surface streets through Covina and West Covina she managed

to get back on the 210 Freeway and headed back to Pasadena, before again turning around and driving back into Covina”. McElhaney eventually ended the hour long chase by fleeing on foot and abandoning the car in a residential neighborhood in Covina where she was found by police 20 minutes later. McElhaney is scheduled to appear in Alhambra Superior Court later this week.

ful sense of humor and willingness to do anything for a great meal has earned him fans across the country. “We are thrilled to announce the new alliance between Dog Haus and the multi-talented Adam Gertler,” said Giragossian, who also serves as Vice President of Franchise Development. “We have worked diligently building a well-honed Dog Haus brand based on fun, food and quality and Adam and his signature line of Gertler’s Wurst sausages are a perfect fit, especially now as we prepare to expand nationwide.” “A confluence of events, timing and appreciation of all things sausages, brought us together,” said Gertler, who, in addition to perfecting his heralded Original Pastrami Dog, has created four custom Gertler’s Wurst sausages for Dog Haus. “Like Gertler’s Wurst, Dog Haus is fun, daring and promotes an atypical mix of the typical that will keep people coming back for more! Partnering with Dog Haus is the next step in my quest to become the ‘Ben & Jerry’s’ of sausages.” The best of Gertler’s Wurst at Dog Haus includes The Abe Froman

(garlic herb kielbasa, white American cheese, fried egg, sautéed jalapenos, grilled onions), Rueben Dog (pastrami sausage, white American cheese, haus slaw, haus sauce), Herban Legand (garlic herb kielbasa, baconkraut, whole grain mustard aioli, crushed fritos), One Night In Bangkok (spicy thai red currywurst, thai slaw, peanut sauce) and Uber Kase (cheddar-stuffed smoky sausage, bing cherry mostarda, arugula, crispy onions, pickled sweet papers). Gertler’s Wurst are available at all Dog Haus locations including Pasadena and Alhambra as well as Dog Haus Biergarten in Old Pasadena. “We hit it out of the park with Dog Haus and now, along with Gertler’s Wurst, we are ready to slide in to cities across the country, “added Vener. “Adam and his sausages are like our permanent Haus guest that we never want to leave!” For more information about Dog Haus, visit doghausdogs.com or call 626.796.HAUS.

The 8 Percent On Sunday, our lunar neighbor made its closest approach to Earth for the 2013 calendar year, appearing eight percent larger and 17 percent brighter than usual according to National Geographic. At its closest, the full moon clocked in at a distance of 221,824 miles -Photo by Terry Miller (356,991 kilometers) from

Earth. That's a bit closer than the typical 226,179 mile (364,000 kilometers) distance. While many people called the moon a "supermoon," that is not the term preferred by the astronomy community. They use the term "perigee full moon," to describe the phenomena.

State legislators urge Metro to postpone expenditure plan amendment hearing Letter sent to Metro supports correcting information for the Foothill Extension to Claremont Senators and Assembly members of the San Gabriel Valley State Legislative Caucus sent a letter to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) calling on the agency to postpone the proposed Measure R Expenditure Plan Amendment hearing, set for this Thursday, until the plan can be updated to include the latest information known for each project. The letter to Metro expresses support for the concept of accelerating critical transportation projects, but not until the Expenditure Plan can be fully updated: “The amendment as currently presented by staff however, is based on a nearly five-year-old expenditure plan and contains information that is outdated and inaccurate for a number of the Measure R projects. We respectfully request that the status and costs be updated for every Measure R transit capital project to reflect the most current information available before any plan to accelerate funding is considered.” The bi-partisan letter was signed by Senators Ed Hernandez (District 24), Bob Huff (District 29), Carol Liu (District 25) and Norma Torres (District 32); along with Assembly members Ed Chau (District 49), Curt Hagman (District 55), Roger Hernandez (District 48), Ron Calderon (District 30), Chris Holden (District 41)

and Cristina Garcia (District 58). The Caucus members identify the Gold Line Foothill Extension project from Pasadena to Claremont as an important example of the lack of updated information in the proposed expenditure plan amendment. The current information for the project includes an inaccurate cost estimate and completion year for the Measure R project, only reflecting the initial segment from Pasadena to Azusa. The letter provides the corrected total estimated cost of $1.714 billion to complete the project to the statutorily-defined destination of Claremont. In the letter, the Caucus members also request that Metro include in the updated expenditure plan information on the additional cost associated with accelerating each project, as well as how the agency intends to pay that additional cost, in order to fully meet legislative requirements: “We also ask that any project acceleration plan provide cost estimates for the acceleration of each project and clear details on how Metro intends to fund said acceleration. Without updated project status and costs for all Measure R projects, as well as a detailed funding strategy for the acceleration of projects, we believe the proposed amendment lacks transparency and does not meet the intent of AB2321.” With this letter, the San

El Monte Job Fair attracts thousands of job seekers The City of El Monte held one of the largest job fairs in the San Gabriel Valley on Friday, attracting thousands of job seekers and more than 50 employers ready to hire. “Our community works better when our residents have stable jobs that pay fairly,” said City Councilman Juventino “J” Gomez, the event’s co-chair. “We all recognize we need to get El Monte residents back to work. For today’s job fair, we worked hard to assemble a great group of employers who currently have open positions. There is nothing better than watching somebody down on their luck leave the job fair with a big smile because he or she just got hired. It's a great feeling.” The El Monte Job Fair, held at the El Monte Community Center, served as a one-stop venue for participants to meet dozens of employers, including Fortune 200 companies, who had thousands of jobs ready to be filled. Some employers conducted interviews and filled positions on the spot. Mayor Pro Tem Norma Macias called the event a success. “It’s such a privilege to see this job fair become an annual event in El Monte,” said Macias, a co-chair of the event. “I

want to thank everybody who helped make this event so popular. When Councilman Gomez and I first worked to develop a job fair in El Monte a few years ago, we had great hopes that it would serve as a resource to our community. Today, we have people lined up down the street to attend, so I think we met that goal.” The job fair was hosted by the City of El Monte in participation with Central San Gabriel Valley Work Source, State of Califor-

nia Employment Development Department, Los Angeles County Department of Social Services and the Los Angeles County Office of Education. It included workshops on “Preparing for Success” and “Interview Techniques.” Human resources representatives were also in attendance to offer resume critiques. Sponsors of the event included Valley Vista Services Inc. and the El Monte Police Officers Association.

Sierra Madre PD

Sunday June 16 Overnight, an unknown suspect entered a vehicle parked in a driveway in the 400 block of Grove Street and rummaged through the interior. Once inside, the suspect was also able to access the vehicle trunk and remove items from that area. The suspect took small items of value and left the scene without being seen. There was no sign of forced entry into the vehicle and the owner admitted that

he had not locked the car that night. At 6pm, a traffic collision occurred in the intersection of Oak Crest Drive and Deodar Circle. A vehicle exiting the Deodar Circle cu-de-sac, failed to yield to a vehicle travelling north on Oak Crest Circle. The parties sustained minor injuries and both vehicles were towed from the scene. Tuesday June 18 At 2pm, units responded to a report of a kidnapping at Kersting Court. On arrival officers determined that the matter was not a kidnap, but was a fight between a father and daughter. The two were travelling in a vehicle when they became engaged in a verbal argument. At one point, the daughter attempted to exit the vehicle while it was still moving. In response the father used physical force to prevent her from doing so. A battery report was completed and the investigation into the matter is continuing. Thursday June 20 At 3:45am, a resident in the 700 block of West Sierra Madre Boulevard observed a suspicious vehicle parked in an apartment carport. The vehicle doors were open and the lights were on. He immediately notified police of the situation. As officers arrived at the location, they observed a female (suspect) standing at a carport storage compartment that had both doors open. The individual was detained and officers determined that a large amount of property was stacked on the ground a short distance away. It was determined that the suspicious vehicle belong to the suspect and it contained a large amount of property as well. Also found in the vehicle was the suspect’s 8 month old son. It was determined that the suspect had been rummaging through a number of carport storage compartments, removing property and loading the items into her vehicle. During a search of the vehicle, methamphetamine was found and it was determined that the suspect was currently on probation for Burglary. An arrest was made and the District Attorney’s Office subsequently filed counts of Burglary, Possession of Narcotics and Child Endangerment on the suspect. The child was released to the care of the Department of Children’s services.

Rosemead City Notices

PUBLIC MEETING – COMPREHENSIVE ZONING CODE UPDATE CITY OF ROSEMEAD

Starting a new business? File your DBA with us at filedba.com AREA MAP:

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Rosemead Community Development Department, Planning Division, is hosting two (2) public outreach meetings on the City’s Comprehensive Zoning Code Update project. Community involvement is a priority for the Comprehensive Zoning Code Update process. The workshops are intended to offer an opportunity for residents, business owners, and community stakeholders to learn about the Zoning Code Update and provide input. The meeting dates and locations are as follows: Wednesday, July 10, 2013 City Hall Council Chambers 8838 E. Valley Boulevard, Rosemead 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Thursday, July 11, 2013 Garvey Community Center, FGT Room 9108 Garvey Avenue, Rosemead 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Why Update the Zoning Code now? The City of Rosemead is updating the Zoning Code for three (3) major reasons. First, the recently adopted General Plan sets new land use polices and designations in some parts of the City as part of the long-range community vision. Some of these changes are inconsistent with the existing Zoning Code districts and regulations. The Zoning Code must be updated to ensure that future development implements the Rosemead General Plan. Second, California State law requires that City’s zoning codes be consistent with State law. Updates are needed to incorporate current State law mandates. Lastly, many portions of the existing City of Rosemead Zoning Code are outdated. Although amended from time to time, the Zoning Code has not been comprehensively updated since 1959. Revisions are needed to streamline the development review process and reinforce the goals of the City’s Strategic Plan. The technical documents relating to proposed zoning code text and map amendments are available for review on the City of Rosemead website (www.cityofrosemead.org). Hard copies are also available for review at Rosemead City Hall (8838 E. Valley Boulevard, Rosemead). For further details on the Comprehensive Zoning Code Update or Outreach Meetings, please call the City’s Planning Division at (626) 569-2140 or by email at sbermejo@cityofrosemead.org. The City of Rosemead intends to provide reasonable accommodations for these meetings in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. If special accommodations are required, please call Michelle Ramirez, Community Development Director, at (626) 569-2158, at least 48 hours prior to either meeting. DATED THIS 27th DAY OF JUNE, 2013.

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, this information can be obtained from one of the following three companies: LPS Agency Sales and Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting and Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com (Click on the link for “Advanced Search” to search for sale information), or auction.com at 1-800-2802832 or visit the Internet Web site www. auction.com, using the Trustee Sale No. shown above.

Public Rose Bowl tours now offered By SHEL SEGAL The historic Rose Bowl – site of many a New Year’s Day football game – is opening its concrete gates for the public to see what really goes on inside the classic stadium. Tours of the Rose Bowl are now going on with just a visit to the stadium’s website. Rose Bowl General Manager Darryl Dunn said by taking the tour you’ll see things there you didn’t know existed. “This is an opportunity to open the Rose Bowl’s doors to the public so you can come in and experience some things you haven’t seen before,” Dunn said. “Whether it’s going to a locker room or seeing the place where Knute Rockne inspired his players, it’s a really a-kin to a museum.” As the stadium is a National Historic Landmark – Yale, Harvard and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum are the other three – Dunn said it only helps to add to the interest in the Rose Bowl. “There are four in the country and we’re one of them,” Dunn said. “It’s

an icon, it truly It it helps identify Pasadena It helps to put us on a platform to the world It helps overall the commerce and people wanting to come here. It’s a heck of a commercial” While the Rose Bowl is best known for college football – especially on New Year’s Day – other events there are the July 4 fireworks show, professional soccer and concerts, Dunn said. “There are activities going on all year,” Dunn said. “We do a lot of corporate events a lot of filming I think the renovations going on will make the Rose Bowl look a little bit younger so it can be continued to be utilized.” The Rose Bowl’s renovation started in January

2011. Costing $181 million, the renovation mainly included the press box and some other buildings. And as a landmark, changes at the stadium cannot be done without a lot of preplanning and many people to approve it. “The fact that you have something that old and original, you need to clean it up a bit, but you don’t want to tear it down,” Dunn said. “You want to appreciate the history here and who you are. We’re never going to be a billion dollar brand new stadium. That’s not what the Rose Bowl is.” To plan a tour of the Rose Bowl, log onto www. rosebowlstadium.com.

Coach of the Year: Alex Valadez, La Canada Alex Valadez, the first year head baseball coach for the La Canada High Spartans has recently been awarded Coach of the year. Valadez got his first taste of success as a coach during his first assistant job at San Dimas High, where he was an assistant coach for seven years and part of the Saints' CIF Southern Section Division V title run in 2009, before making the move to La Canada in 2010.For the past two seasons, Valdez has been an assistant coach with the La Canada Spartans alongside 10-year La Canada head Coach Dennis Ballard, who recently resigned for personal reasons.

Arcadia Rotary to welcome wide receiver J. K. McKay - July 26 by Anne Donofrio-Holter The Arcadia Rotary Club will host University of Southern California wide receiver J. K. McKay as its guest speaker July 26. The name John “J. K.” McKay is synonymous with Trojan football greatness," said club president Eric Barter. "He will speak on Trojan football, past, present and future." McKay, who still ranks 23rd on USC's career receiving list, was a member of USC's 1972 and 1974 national championship teams where he played for his father, head coach John McKay. In 1975, he was named co-MVP in the USC/Ohio State Rose Bowl game. He

played in three Rose Bowl games and was inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame in 1998. McKay spent some time as an assistant coach at Oregon State before playing wide receiver from 1976 to 1978 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where his father was head coach. A practicing attorney, he has worked with groups interesting in bringing a football team back to Los Angeles and served as vice president and general manager of the now defunct XFL Los Angeles Xtreme football team. In 2010, McKay became USC's Senior Associate Athletic Director. "Our club members

are looking forward to this interesting and exciting program," said Barter. The Arcadia Rotary Club meets every Friday from noon to 1:30 pm at the Embassy Suites Hotel located at 211 E Huntington Drive in Arcadia. For additional information, go to www.arcadiarotary.org.

Two journalists, including photographer Edouard Elias, abducted in Syria According the British Photography Journal two more journalists have been apprehended as a result of war. French journalists Didier François and Edouard Elias, a photographer, have been abducted in Syria, authorities have confirmed. According to Le Monde and BBC News, the two journalists, Didier François and Edouard Elias, were travelling to Aleppo in Syria when they were abducted by four armed men at a checkpoint on Thursday. Speaking from Japan, French president François

Hollande has asked for the journalists' immediate release. "We have indeed lost contact with these two journalists, but we do not yet know the exact circumstances," the BBC reports Hollande as saying. "I demand the immediate release of these journalists because they do not represent any state. These are men who have worked so the world can get information. Journalists must be treated as journalists." News of their abduction was first reported by Les Echos and confirmed by Europe 1 - which had commissioned both journalists.

Europe 1, a French radio station, says it is in contact with French authorities to help in the journalists' release. Elias, a 22-year-old photographer, recently joined the agency Haytham Pictures. Since the beginning of the Syrian conflict, he has made several trips in Aleppo. His work has been published by Paris Match, Der Spiegel and The Sunday Times among many others. In a statement, Haytham Pictures' director Christian Sauvan-Magnet says that the agency is also in contact with French authorities to ensure Elias' safe return.

New Legislations in pipeline could seriously impact seniors The California State Senate is debating AB 241 by Assembly Member Tom Ammiano. This bill eliminates existing labor provisions in wage orders that keep home care costs affordable and accessible. If enacted this bill would dramatically increase the cost of care for seniors and their families. Seniors and their families rely on home care services that provide assistance and “companion care services” which keep seniors safe in their home. Last year, Ammiano authored a similar bill, AB 889, that was vetoed by Governor Brown who raised the following questions in his veto message that summarizes the concerns of seniors and their families: “What will be the economic and human impact on the disabled or elderly person and their

family of requiring overtime, rest and meal periods for an attendant who provides 24-hour care? What would be the additional costs and what is the financial capacity of those taking care of loved ones in the last years of life? Will it increase costs to the point of forcing people out of their homes and into licensed institutions?” Home care advocates are very concerned that if enacted, AB 241 would price many families out of their home due to the increased costs and force them to make difficult decisions about where they live and receive care. The ability for seniors to access affordable care is also jeopardized by another bill, AB 1217, by Assembly Member Bonnie Lowenthal. If enacted, AB 1217 will raise the cost of care of

home care for seniors by at least 30-35%. The costs of the bill are the result of requiring home care aides to become certified by the state who will also manage and online registry of aides that includes where they work. Aides would be responsible to report to the state where they work in order for the state to have the information for the registry. This type of reporting is not required for any other care provider in California. If these two bills are passed, it would make it extremely expensive for the seniors to live in their homes in the golden years of their lives. New legislations would raise the cost of care so prohibitively that it has the potential to bankrupt many seniors who wishes to live in their home in the last days of their lives.

Supreme Court turns back the clock on Voting Rights Act Continued from page 1

application of the 1985 Voting Rights Act. The Court focused its decision on the fact that the “racial gap in turnout” had been reduced in states subject to oversight since the 1980’s. I believe this is evidence that the Voting Rights Act has been working as intended and should have been left alone. The court’s dissent noted that 700 state and local voting changes were rejected by the Department of Justice between 1982 and 2006—strong evidence that the coverage formula and

federal oversight has averted minority voter suppression of various forms. I certainly believe that the future of the Voting Rights Act is at risk. I call on Congress to set aside partisan difference and come together to redraft the coverage formula to restore this important piece of Civil Rights Legislation.” Justice Antonin Scalia who was one of the Justices who struck down the act once described the 1965 Voting Rights Act( unquestionably one of the great triumphs of the Civil Rights era) as a “ra-

cial entitlement.” “And this last enactment,” said Scalia, “not a single vote in the Senate against it. And the House is pretty much the same. Now, I don’t think that’s attributable to the fact that it is so much clearer now that we need this. I think it is attributable—very likely attributable—to a phenomenon that is called ‘perpetuation of racial entitlement.’ Whenever a society adopts racial entitlements, it is very difficult to get out of them through the normal political process.”
