Arcadia American Little League advance to the Winner's Bracket Championship The Arcadia American Little League 9-10 All-Star team defeated two District 17 rivals this week to advance to the Winner's Bracket Championship of the annual tournament at Farnsworth Park in Altadena. On Saturday, AALL pounded out 14 hits and got a tremendous pitching effort from Kellen Gewecke to defeat Sierra Madre, 9-5 in their tournament opener. Gewecke allowed only a run in 3 2/3 innings, striking out six and walking none to earn the win on a hot, humid morning. Edward Jin and Mikey Hillier each drove in three runs for AALL, Mikey Easter had two hits and Michael Gruppie reached base all four at-bats with a hit and three walks. Nico Tierney had three RBI in a losing cause for Sierra Madre, which kept the game close as AALL hit in some tough luck including a bases-loaded line drive double play in addition to

The big inning gave Jin a comfortable cushion to close out the game. McIntire scattered five hits and walked none in his strong starting effort, Gewecke was solid again in relief and Jin struck out four over the final 1 2/3. Easter was a perfect 4 for 4 at the plate, with a pair of doubles, an RBI and run scored, and Brandon Williams and Will Meeks added two RBIs each with clutch base hits in the big fifth inning for AALL.

Dorothy's Place

The Social Whirl

Reflecting on July 4th

By Dorothy Denne Today is Independence Day. I think we should pay less attention to the fireworks and more to the meaning of our country's founding and the values it holds dear. Otto Whittaker's oft quoted 1955 poem I Am The Nation begins: 'I was born on July 4, 1776, and the Declaration of Independence is my birth certificate. ' Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence? Of them, five signers were captured by

the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the war. They all signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well the penalty could be death if they were ever captured. Standing tall and unwavering, they pledged: "For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor." They gave you and me a free and independent America. Also from Whittaker:

'I am the nation. I stood at Lexington and fired the shot heard around the world. The bloodlines of the world run in my veins because I offered freedom to the oppressed. I am many things and many people. I am the millions of living souls and the ghost of millions who have lived and died for me. I am the nation. 'Yes, I am the United States of America. I was conceived in freedom and, God willing, in freedom I will spend the rest of my days. May I possess always the integrity, the courage and the strength to keep myself unshackled, to remain a citadel of freedom and a beacon of hope to the world.' Happy July 4th to all of us!

The Social Whirl A Mid-Summer Night's Dream Opens September 7th Southern California Shakespeare Festival a professional company in its 9th season operating under an Equity Guest Artist Contract, presents Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is set around the time that Theseus, duke of Athens, is about to wed Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons. A local maiden, Hermia, is in love with Lysander, but her father Egeus is trying to force her to marry Demetrius, who is in turn loved by Helena. Meanwhile, Oberon, king of the faires (in this context, magical nocturnal folk who dwell in the forest) seeks to discipline his petulant queen, Titania, and engages the services of Puck, a magical sprite, to cast a spell on her. This play is a favorite of audiences because there’s love and romance, comedy and laughter, magical creatures and mystical spells, some just plain silliness, and even an actor who looks like a jackass (intentionally).

Robinson recently directed a production of Euripides’ “The Cyclops” at the Getty Museum to compliment their comprehensive exhibit “The Art of Ancient Greek Theatre”. He is a graduate of California State University, Fullerton and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, for Cal Poly, Sam directed Chekhov’s “The Bear” and “The Proposal” and is honored to return to the Southern California Shakespeare Festival where he directed last year’s magical production of “The Tempest”. His cast for “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” includes (in alphabetical order): Luis Arrendondo, Vanessa Babida, Job Barnett, Catherine Campbell, Annie Dennis, William Dinwiddie, Adriana Flores, Amy Hatfield, Andrea Lopez, Valerie Lopez. Andy Jguo, Tiana Parker, Dulan Parra, Marissa Pitts, Ruben Serrano, Lena Solano, Paula Solano and Alicia Joy Volinkski. Dennis, Pitts and Paula Solano are Equity Guest Artists.

Tiffany Zhao, of Temple City won first place in the Varsity division of the June 22 Challenge. The Braille Challenge® is an academic competition unlike any other. This two-stage contest is designed to motivate blind students to emphasize their study of braille, while rewarding their success with a fun-filled, but challenging, weekend of events. We work with agencies and individual teachers from across the United States and Canada to encourage their students to participate in the preliminary round. Contestants may take

the Preliminary Contest anytime during the first two months of the year in one of two ways: 1. Students gain the fullest experience by attending one of the many Braille Challenge regional events in their own state or region. One of the blind service agencies and/or schools near you could be hosting their own Preliminary Challenge. 2. Students may also take the Challenge individually if the contest is administered by a teacher of the visually impaired. Either way, everyone can be a part of the Prelimi-

nary Round. Once the contests are scored, the top eligible students are invited to Los Angeles, where they match skills against the top Braille readers in the nation at the National Braille Challenge. Tiffany has competed in the Braille Challenge since she was 7 years old and has won the North American competition three times. The 13th annual competition tested more than 1,000 of the brightest blind and visually impaired students in 39 states and three Canadian provinces.

CAL FIRE arrests Yosemite Lakes Park area arson suspects After a rash of suspicious fires, CAL FIRE law enforcement officers Tuesday night arrested a Yosemite Lakes Park couple on suspicion of dozens of arson fires. Kenneth Alan Jackson, 40 and Allison Marie Waterman, 46, both of Coarsegold, were booked into the Madera County Jail for arson. Jackson is being charged with 31 counts of arson, resisting arrest, as well as attempted battery on a peace officer. Waterman was booked on a single charge of arson. “The Yosemite Lakes Park community has been threatened by countless wildfires over the past several months that we believe were a result of arson,” said Chief Nancy Koerperich,

CAL FIRE Unit Chief for the Madera-Mariposa-Merced Unit. “We appreciate the community’s support and assistance as we worked to track down these suspects.” CAL FIRE law enforcement officers work diligently in arson cases to aggressively investigate and prosecute those suspected of intentionally starting fires. Numerous agencies assisted in the investigation and arrest including the Madera County Sheriff’s Department, Madera County District Attorney’s Office and the Yosemite Lakes Park security staff. As fire danger remains extreme across California, arson is a major threat to both life and property. Residents should be vigilant

in their preparedness and aware of suspicious persons when a fire does start. If you witness someone suspicious make note of the time, his or her physical description, as well as any vehicle description, including the license plate number. Always contact law enforcement, never approach a suspicious person. Anyone with information about arson is urged to contact the CAL FIRE Arson Hotline at 1-800-4684408. Callers can remain anonymous. Yosemite Lakes Park is a community of approximately 1,900 homes in Madera County located between Yosemite National Park and Fresno, near the town of Coarsegold.

Chu hails senate's passage of immigration reform bill The U.S. Senate passed a bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform proposal by an overwhelming margin of 68 to 32 last week. “Today is a landmark moment in the fight to fulfill America’s promise as a nation of immigrants. More than two thirds of the Senate, from all reaches of the country and both ends of the political spectrum, answered the call for immigration reform that the American people made loud and clear in last year’s election.

In doing so, they also leveled a challenge for the House to follow suit. “So far, the House Republicans’ strategy for immigration reform has been to slow-walk and cherry pick. On the same day that the Senate passed their compromise bill, the House marked up an ideological bill that completely disregarded the needs of minority and immigrant communities laid out by the Congressional Tri-Caucus. “This overt partisanship

cannot last if the House is going to rise to the occasion. I urge my colleagues on the other side of the aisle to join us in good faith to solve our immigration problems, and to stop undercutting the sincere efforts that Republicans and Democrats in the Senate have put forth. The time for immigration reform is undoubtedly now, and the time for the political games to end has long passed. We must get this done.” Judy Chu told Beacon Media last week.

Labor Chair Hernández’ says Supreme Court decision is ‘Historic’ Assemblymember Roger Hernandez released the following statement regarding today’s Supreme Court of the United States ruling on same-sex marriage: “Today is a historic day for Californians and same-sex marriage advocates around the nation. I

am proud to stand with activists in support of a more just society where individuals have the protective right to marry his or her partner. California will soon resume providing the opportunity with same-sex marriages for the residents of this state. Today’s victory in our nation’s highest

court will shed light on the resounding effect of the resilient support around the country. I look forward to share in this momentous occasion with friends and colleagues for a better tomorrow where equal rights continue to be protected.”

The City of Sierra Madre and the San Gabriel Municipal Water district have placed a large ‘water thermometer’ in Kersting Court warning residents that we are in a water crisis mode and points out that we are dangerously close to a “well failure.” What that actually means is subject to interpretation and many questions. We called to city for answers on what that actually means but our calls were not immediately answered.

At the May 28, 2013 City Council meeting, the City Council implemented mandatory water conservation measures for all water customers in Sierra Madre, effective immediately. The dry winter Sierra Madre just experienced seriously affected the groundwater levels as did increased water consumption by the City’s water customers. Due to the lack of rain and increased consumption, the groundwater levels have not recovered, leading the

Raymond Basin Watermaster to reduce the City’s groundwater pumping rights by almost 47%. The City now requires that each water customer conserve a percentage of his or her July 2011 through June 2012 water use. The required percentage of conservation will vary, depending on the customer’s water use. Customers consuming 0-12 billing units of water (0-1,200 cubic feet) will be exempt from the conservation requirements.

Celebrate financial independence Generations of Americans have sought financial independence through both economic highs and lows. As we celebrate Independence Day this month, take time to celebrate the freedoms our democracy offers and also reflect on what you can do to help ensure longterm financial stability for yourself and your family. Consider the following ideas and actions: • Be true to yourself. While a competitive personality may help you get ahead in some areas of your life, no one wins when you try to keep up with “the Jones’.” It’s important to understand your own financial circumstances and resist the urge to match the lifestyle of those around you. Expensive lifestyles that indicate financial success may simply be a façade for big spenders. Instead of following their lead, consider your budget, long-term goals and personal values when making important financial decisions. Pursue your own happiness within your means and the real prize – a secure financial future – will likely follow. • Pay yourself first. This probably isn’t the first time you’ve heard the advice to “pay yourself first.” This guidance is relevant through all economic circumstances and life stages. Explore and take advantage of every opportunity you have to fund your savings with minimal effort. Automatically invest a portion of every paycheck into your retirement account and be sure to maximize any employer match that’s available to you. It’s also easy to

set up an automatic transfer from your checking account to your savings account, or to have a specified amount regularly direct-deposited from your paycheck. A system like this makes saving a priority while also allowing you to meet your monthly expenses. • Be realistic and be prepared. Optimism is a classic American trait, but don’t let this otherwise positive characteristic cloud your judgment. Have you considered what may happen if you faced a sudden job loss, long-term illness, natural disaster or other unexpected event? Review your insurance coverage (including life, health, disability, property, auto and long-term care policies) and ensure you and your family are properly protected. It’s also a good idea to have enough liquid assets available to cover six months worth of expenses. Though it’s not fun to temporarily squelch your optimism, most people feel more confident about the future once they know they’re financially prepared for a variety of scenarios. • Control your debt. Payments on consumer debt, student loans, and excessive car or mortgage payments can cripple your ability to save and make you feel like you’ll be financially dependent for eternity. Though the best approach is to minimize how much you borrow, take control by establishing a plan that will systematically reduce the outstanding balance on any existing loans. Another bonus to staying on top of debt repayment is an improved

credit rating, which may allow you to access loans when opportunities that could benefit your financial position arise, like a small business venture or low interest equity line of credit. • Put your plan in writing. When our Founding Fathers declared their aspirations for our nation, they took a very important step – they wrote them down. Use this as inspiration to create a written plan that outlines your personal dreams and goals, as well as the actions you’ll need to take to achieve them. If the financial part seems overwhelming, consider consulting a financial advisor. He or she can provide guidance on saving for retirement, funding your child’s education or working toward any other financial goal that’s important to you. As Americans, we share certain unalienable rights – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. While the last of those means something different to everyone, planning ahead and establishing financial independence can play an important role in helping your goals and dreams become a reality.

2013-14 budget signed Governor Brown signed a balanced, on-time budget Thursday that directs additional resources to California’s neediest students and continues the implementation of federal health care reform, while continuing to pay down debt and build a significant reserve to prepare for future uncertainties. The budget is projected to provide long-term fiscal balance with operating surpluses. “California’s finances are in very solid shape for the first time in a decade,” said Governor Brown, “We’re making significant investments in the things Californians care most about – the education of our children and adequate health care.” The budget builds on significant progress in chipping away at the state’s “Wall of Debt.” This year’s budget commits $2.6 billion to continue to pay down budgetary borrowing of prior years. From its peak of $34.7 billion at the end of 2010-11, the outstanding debt is $26.9 billion at the end of 2012-13; under the budget signed today that will be paid down to $4.7 billion over the next four fiscal years. When Governor Brown was elected in 2010, the state budget deficit was $26.6 billion. Today, California has

a budget surplus and general fund spending stands at $96.3 billion. The budget act signed today also establishes a budget reserve of $1.1 billion. Significant Details of the 2013-14 State Budget: Historic School Funding Reform The budget adds $2.1 billion for first-year implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula – which replaces today’s overly complex, inefficient and inequitable finance system for California’s K-12 schools. Districts will receive a per-pupil base grant, a supplemental grant based upon the number of students who are English learners, students from low-income families and foster youth and a concentration grant for districts with over 55 percent of this targeted population. Implementing Health Care Reform Building on California’s early establishment of a health benefit exchange and the early coverage expansion through the “Bridge to Reform” waiver, the budget aligns with the federal Affordable Care Act (ACA) in a prudent way while maintaining a strong public safety net. The budget enacts a state-based approach to the optional expansion of care allowed under federal law. Over time, as the ACA be-

comes fully operative, funding previously provided to counties for indigent health will be shifted to fund human services programs. Multi-Year Funding Plan for Higher Education The budget establishes the first-year investment in a multi-year stable funding plan for the University of California and the California State University systems. Each system will receive a 5 percent increase of $125.1 million – the first stage of a four-year funding schedule that will result in a 20 percent general fund increase for the systems. The systems will also receive $125 million in 2013-14 for not increasing student tuition and fees in 2012-13. The budget also provides a year-over-year increase of $228.6 million in general fund dollars and local property taxes for California Community Colleges. Investing in Energy Efficiency The budget invests significantly in improving energy efficiency at California’s K-12 schools and community colleges by directing $381 million in Proposition 39 funds to K-12 schools and $47 million for community colleges. Additional details on the 2013-14 budget, including line-item vetoes, can be found at www.ebudget. ca.gov.

Rep. Chu blasts congress for allowing student loan rates to double Today, interest rates on Stafford student loans doubled, from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent. Congress first lowered the governmentbacked rates to 3.4 percent in 2007, helping countless young Americans earn their degrees. When that rate was set to expire on July 1, 2012, public pressure led to a one year extension, which came to its statutory end today. “Higher education is the single greatest avenue of upward mobility that our society has ever known,” said Rep. Chu. “But student loan debt is already more than all of our nation’s credit card debt, combined! “Saddling this kind of debt on the next generation of American leaders will hold them back from reaching their full potential. It’s an unacceptable burden for young people to should for the sake of a brighter future, and it’s an untenable policy for a nation struggling its way out of recession. “I have repeatedly called on Congress to stop these rate

hikes from taking place, and I am proud to have voted for a Democratic alternative that would have kept student rates at 3.4 percent. While those rates have already doubled, it will be three months before our students feel the pain. We must act immediately to bring the rates back down before students across America begin paying for Congress’ inability to get something done.” Congresswoman Chu is a staunch proponent of keeping student interest rates low. As a former educator with more than 20 years of experience in the classroom, she consistently advocates for increasing opportunities for young people to earn their higher education and contribute to our society. On June 10, Chu was joined at a press conference by Rep. Adam Schiff and officials from California Institute of Technology, Pasadena City College, East Los Angeles College, as well as students and activists from Young Invincibles.

5 California Firefighters among the 19 lost in Arizona Continued from page 1

"Unfortunately, we have very few words to express that kind of sorrow." Flags in Los Angeles County were at half-staff Tuesday to honor firefighters who died battling the blaze raging in Arizona. The tragedy was particularly felt in California, where five of the dead firefighters grew up. Grant McKee, Costa Mesa,21, Kevin Woyjeck, 21, of Seal Beach, Sean Misner, 26, of the Santa Ynez Valley, and Hemet natives William "Billy" Warneke, 25, and Chris MacKenzie, 30, perished with members of the Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew. Misner was related to Montecito Fire Chief Terry McElwee according to a report from the Associated Press. Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. Tuesday issued the following statement regarding the 19 firefighters who were killed near Prescott, Arizona yesterday: “Anne and I were saddened to learn of the deaths of 19 firefighters from the Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot Crew as

they worked bravely and selflessly to protect their fellow Arizonans from the Yarnell Hill fire,” said Governor Brown. “Our thoughts are with the families of the deceased, their fire service colleagues and the people of Arizona as they mourn this tremendous loss. This tragedy reminds us once again of the courage our public safety workers bring to the job every day, and the sacrifices they often have to make to keep the rest of us safe.” California Department

of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) Chief Ken Pimlott also issued the following statement: “On behalf of all Californians, I expressed condolences to Arizona State Forester Scott Hunt today for his state’s tragic and painful loss of 19 firefighters,” said Chief Pimlott. “Our thoughts are with the Arizona fire service and the families of the fallen as they struggle to cope with the magnitude of such sacrifice. The fire service is bound by

our commitment to those we protect and, in that spirit, I offered our assistance during this trying time. We stand ready to help in any way we can should the need arise.” In honor of the fallen firefighters, Capitol flags will be flown at half-staff as are many area firehouses. This most recent tragic firefighter loss is second only to the events which took over 30 firefighters’ lives in Griffith Park during the Depression.

families: Dear Hero, My name is Kelly. I am going into the fifth grade. In my writing class, my teacher talked about the 4th of July and how you’ll celebrate it compared to me. In some ways, we are alike, but we are also different. We have many things in common. One similarity is that we support and love America. Additionally, we both want freedom for our country. Another similarity is that we both have yellow ribbons and want safety. Even though we’re far apart and we might never meet, we’re united as Americans. Though we have many similarities, we also have many differences. During Independence Day, I will see fireworks, but you will see bombs and fighting. It is sad to know that I’ll have a barbeque and cold drinks and ice, but you only have MRE’s. Another difference is that I’ll be listening to people speaking English, but you’ll be listening to people speaking foreign languages. Our differences don’t separate us; rather they make me

grateful for what you’re willing to sacrifice. On this 4th of July, I will be having a great day, but I’ll be thinking about you. I am sending you this yellow ribbon because I want you to know that your family will think of you livingly. I hope that on the next 4th of July you will be with your family. Sincerely, Kelly Dear Hero, My name is William. I am an 11-year-old boy who knows what it is like for you to fight for our country. This week, the 4th of July is coming soon, and I have noticed that we have something in common, even though I am a boy and you are a hero. I want to give my thanks to you for protecting our country that our people love. Anyway, there are some great examples of how we both are alike and different. There are many things we have in common. One this is that we both support America. I know that you didn’t join the armed forces because you had to, but because you wanted to. We are also willing to sacrifice for the

greater good. Most importantly, we both love our families from deep in our hearts. A family can inspire us to stay focused and achieve our goals. Therefore, there are the similarities that we both have. There are also many things that we have in contrast. One thing is that I have fun and joy around me while you have to handle the fighting and harsh conditions that you are encountering today. Also, I have more delicious food and drinks while you have MRWE”S. Most importantly, we both have a big living difference. I feel bad that you have to handle these situations while we don’t. July 4th is coming, and I just wanted to give you thanks for what you have done for our country. For that, I am giving you a yellow ribbon and a package from America to show you that we appreciate the hard work you have done. The ribbon is a sign that your family truly cares about you and wants you to come home safely. So, when the 4h of July comes, I’m going to have a great time. I Please see page 19

Nine years ago, Abraham Magana traveled through the Mexican desert from El Salvador with strangers to meet up with his family who was here in the United States. Now 19, he has studied hard and has earned a $1,000 scholarship to study at a university. Funds for these scholarships were being raised at a dinner at the San Gabriel Mission on June 27. Known as “Build the Dreams” scholarships, they are being given to students who live in the city of San Gabriel, have a demonstrated need and are giving back to the community in some way. Fr. Bruce Wellems of the mission said the students who were awarded the scholarships are very deserving. “We’re trying to encourage that value of service,” Wellems said. “We’re encouraging them with their service and their goals.” Service projects the students undertook ranged from feeding the poor and

By Shel Segal hungry to doing tutoring to even trying to start their own non-profit organization, Wellems said. In addition, 22 students were awarded scholarships. “What we’re looking for is that deeper kind of volunteering, kind of commitment,” said Wellems, who added he expected between 150 and 200 people to attend the dinner. “We are hoping to raise over $30,000 for this event.” Magana said he has more work to do in the community beyond just receiving this scholarship. “We want to reach out and help the parents in an underprivileged to help the parents become more educated,” he said. “I’m also helping out different projects, like Seek L.A. Chinatown and also biking for research. The more you bike, the more is donated for research. I’m trying to get as much involvement in the community as I can.” He added he was very pleased to be recognized

with money for college. “I am extremely honored to be getting one of these scholarships. It’s going to build for something bigger. Without this I would be having so much more trouble to collect funds for college. Gabrielino High School graduate Michelle De Luna was also honored with a scholarship. De Luna, who is transferring to Loyola Marymount University this fall, helped start the Family Resource Center in the San Gabriel Unified School District. De Luna said being awarded the funds is very important as she and her family are now trying to pay for college. “College tuition is not getting any cheaper,” she said. “It increases drastically day by day. Any money is really helpful.” For more information on the scholarship fund, log onto www.buildthedreamsscholarship.org. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

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.

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.

Sobriety & driver’s license checkpoint in Arcadia - July 6 The Arcadia Police Department will be hosting a multi-agency sobriety and driver’s license checkpoint on Saturday night July 6, 2013, in accordance with a grant issued and administered by the Glendora Police Department from the Office of Traffic Safety, as part of the AVOID the 100 DUI Campaign, East-Los Angeles County. Participants will include officers and personnel from the Arcadia, El Monte, Monrovia, Sierra Madre, West Covina and Baldwin Park School Police Departments. One of the goals of the checkpoint is to promote

public safety and increase awareness of the dangers associated with drinking and driving. This will be accomplished by providing a highly visible enforcement and publicity campaign, in order to deter intoxicated drivers from getting behind the wheel and driving. Through these efforts, we also seek to reduce the number of injuries and deaths associated with collisions involving intoxicated drivers. We would like to remind the public of the dangers associated with drinking and driving. It simply is not worth it to drive while impaired. Give the gift of

life this holiday weekend and celebrate responsibly by using a sober designated driver. Remember, “Friends don’t let friend’s drive while impaired.” Jan’s Towing provides a no cost “Don’t Drive Drunk” detour program, 365 days a year, and will provide a free lift home for drivers and their vehicles up to 7 miles in their service area.

Summertime…and the living is easy in Temple City and San Gabriel 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

By Shel Segal 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.

Life Remembered Selwyn EIber Selwyn Eiber, an elementary school teacher for more than 20 years passed away on June 21th after more than a year of battling stomach cancer. As one of his closest friends, John Hinrichs wrote, “on the summer solstice - the day with the most sunshine - Selwyn Eiber died. Now, each day will be a little darker without him." Although recently a resident of Temple City, Selwyn was born on in New York City on December 27, 1955. It was in New York that he spent most of his youth. A favorite part of his youth were his summer spent at Camp Dunmore. He first moved to California in 1974 to attend Occidental College. His time at Oxy was to be pivotal in his life as it provided him with many of his life long friendships. After graduation he returned briefly to New York to work as Vista volunteer in the projects there. Among other tasks, as a Vista volunteer, Selwyn created a newspaper written by and for the residents of the project to disseminate information pertinent to government programs. Upon returning to California, Selwyn worked for several years as a reporter

for the Pasadena Star News. He covered the education and science beats including JPL and one controversial story about a family that conceived a child to provide bone marrow for an older child suffering from a vicious from of cancer. As his friend and fellow journalist Rich Jenkins related that for Selwyn there was

never “a real fire in his belly” for journalism. He was in his thirties when he found his real calling, education and more specifically elementary education. For more than 20 years he taught 4th and 5th grade at Betty Placentia Elementary School near downtown Los Angeles. And there was a “real fire in the belly” for teaching and an honest love and concern for his students.

As it had taken him some time to find his true calling, it also took him some time to find his true love. On July 5, 2003 he married Alisha Lee, a woman he first met when she was the bilingual aide in his classroom. She went on to become a teacher in her own right and eventually the mother of his two beloved children, Kaylee and Brady. These were the things Selwyn loved most: his family, above all else, his friends, and his students. All will miss him. He was a constant source of good humor, good fun, and good thoughts. Selwyn was always a positive person who found joy in everything from battling the bureaucracy of education, to watching his children grown to hiking with his buddy Chip. His father, Dr. Harold Eiber, his mother, Audrey Eiber and her long time love and partner, Howard Adelman, preceded Selwyn in death. His wife, their two children, his sisters, Shelly and Marcie, and a host of cousins and friends survive him. There were no funeral services, but a celebration of his life is being planned for early August.

Governor Brown Continued from page 1

kids and it’s a good day for our future.” At a signing ceremony at Cahuenga Elementary School in Los Angeles, the Governor was joined by legislative, education, business and civil rights leaders, including Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez. Governor Brown also appeared later in the day at California Middle School in Sacramento with Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg. “Our disadvantaged students deserve more resources to overcome the extra obstacles they face, and this formula does just that. At the same time, we’re investing more resources in all of our students, and building on proven programs of career technical education and partnership academies to keep our students engaged and give them better preparation for college and careers,” said Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg. “This dramatic shift in funding allows our schools to target investment where it’s needed most. By empowering our students for success, we pave the way for a stronger California.” The legislation – called the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) – replaces California’s overly complex, inefficient and inequitable finance system for K-12 schools. Under the legislation, districts will receive a per-pupil base grant, a supplemental grant based upon the number of students who are English

learners, students from lowincome families and foster youth and a concentration grant for districts with over 55 percent of this targeted population. Under the 2013-14 budget, which Governor Brown signed into law last week, all schools will receive a significant increase in funds, with the neediest students and districts receiving enhanced aid under the legislation. The budget includes $2.1 billion for first-year implementation of these reforms. When fully implemented over an eight year phase in, it is projected that the formula will spend 84 cents of each dollar on base grants for every district, 10 cents in supplemental funding for every English learner, student from a low income family or foster child in a district and 6 cents for those districts that have a particularly high concentration of these students. While the concentration funds represent only a small portion of the total dollars, they are critically important to those districts with the greatest challenges. By shifting funds from “categorical” grants – money tied to complex state mandates that limit how schools can use the funds – to the new per-pupil base, supplemental and concentration grants, the legislation increases local control while enhancing transparency and accountability. Each school district, charter school and county office of

education will produce a local control and accountability plan that will set annual goals and describe how the local agency would use available resources. In addition to LCFF, the Governor also signed legislation establishing a Middle Class Scholarship program to make college more affordable for middle-income Californians. Under the new program, resident students whose families earn between $100,000 and $150,000 will be eligible for reduced fees at the University of California and California State University. Beginning in the 2014-15 school year, eligible students could see mandatory systemwide tuition reduced by up to 40 percent under the new program in combination with other sources of aid. “This is a great victory for higher education and middle class families in California, and a huge first step in keeping college affordable,” said Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez, who authored the bill. “For the past 10 years, the middle class has been increasingly squeezed out of our public universities because of skyrocketing tuition rates, forcing students to drop out of college or take on massive student debt that will negatively impact them for years, possibly decades. This legislation will ensure that California maintains a healthy middle class and an educated workforce to keep our economy strong.”

Temple City students pen letters to soldiers

Continued from page 13

hope you’ll have a great day too! Best wishes, William Dear Soldier, Hi, my name is Edna. I’ve just heard about how you lost all your supplies. In writing class, we are writing to you and the other soldiers to tell you that you’re not alone. I was surprised to see what similarities and differences we have. As a 5th grader, I respect you. We are similar by loving America. Another similarity is that we want freedom. You are very supportive to our country. We are always sacrificing our freedom for other people. On the other hand, we are also different. As we are celebrating with laughter and fireworks, you are fighting in a war. When we are hearing fun explosions, the soldiers who are fighting hear bad explosions. As we are thinking about our families, you’re thinking about winning the freedom for our country. I just want to hope for the best for you. Over all, thank you for your support. You are a life saver, and you should be

happy about that. You are brave, but I am too scared to get on the field and fight. Thank you! Sincerely, Edna Dear Fellow American Soldiers, Hi, my name is Amanda, and I am a 6th grader. I am making a difference around the world. You and I have many differences and some of the same feelings in our minds. We can do many things to save America from being torn apart. The 4th of July is to make sure we are all safe. We are so alike. We are willing to sacrifice our lives for everybody. We both support and love America. We know that the yellow ribbon stands for your safe return and being happy. We all want to be with our sweet families. We want freedom to save our lives. We may have differences as well. We have beautiful fireworks, and you have the explosions of bombs to save our world. We have nice meals, but we have to prepare them. You have MRE’s, and you can have food in a heartbeat. You may be lonely, but you have many friends for

comfort. I have family for comfort. We are different in many ways, but we sacrifice all together. The 4th of July could be the happiest time for both of us. l hope that you will imagine all of your family greeting you and being happy to see you. If you see the bag, there is a nice clean yellow ribbon, a bag of Skittles, and sunscreen for the sun. I hope you enjoy this letter. Please write back. Best wishes, Amanda. Dear Heroes, My name is Jimmy. I’ve been thinking about the 4th of July. I’m a student in a summer writing class. I was surprised to find that we have many similarities and differences. We both love America and support her. We both have yellow ribbons. Another way we’re similar is that we love our families and want freedom for others. We also have differences. One way we’re different is that I will hear fireworks, and you’ll be hearing bombs. We will be playing, and you’ll be fighting. We will have exciting explosions,

and you’ll have ear-shattering explosions. We’ll have ice cream, and you'll have MRE’s. We’ll have picnics, and you’ll have hurt men. Thank you for sacrificing for our country. l hope you have a safe holiday and come home safe and sound! Sincerely, A grateful American, Jimmy Dear Hero, My name is Jeremy, and I am a 4th grader in a summer writing program. My teacher was talking about the 4th of July. I was very surprised when my teacher said that even though I am a student and you’re a soldier, we have similarities. We both have yellow ribbons and support and love American. We also have differences. Every once in a while you are lucky because at home we have to cook our food and wait a while to eat. You can just eat quickly. I am sending you a yellow ribbon. It is a sign that next year you could be back home so you can enjoy the 4th of July. I just want you to know that I want you to stay safe.

Sincerely, Jeremy Dear Hero, My name is Andrew. I am a 5th grader in writing class. In writing class, we are learning about compare and contrast. Today we were comparing you and me. Since it is almost Fourth of July, I was thinking about what you will be doing and what I will be doing on that holiday. You will be hearing earshattering explosions from scary bombs, but I will hear exciting explosions of fireworks. Our food will be like picnics, ice cream, and icycold drinks. But you have MRE’s. However, they are easier to prepare. You might hear a foreign language. We will be safe and happy because of you. We are alike in some way. We both are willing to sacrifice for the support of America. You and I both want freedom and safety. We love our families and the 4th of July. I hope you will survive and keep us safe. We will remember you on the Fourth of July. Best of luck on your journey. Love,

Andrew Dear Hero, My name is Emily, and I’m going into the fifth grade. Today in writing class, my teacher talked about the 4th of July. I know you are a soldier, and I’m a student. In this letter, I’m going to compare and contrast myself with you. One similarity is that we are willing to sacrifice. Another similarity is that we support America. We also love America. The last thing we have in common is that we want freedom. Once difference is that I will see fireworks, and you will see bombs exploding. Also I will hear laughs and exciting explosions, but you will hear explosions, and your ears will chatter. On the 4th of July, I will have picnics and icy drinks while you eat MRE's. The last difference is that you’re in the heat while I’m in my cool house. I hope you have a great 4th of July. I hope next year the war ends and you can celebrate with everyone. I’m sending you a yellow ribbon. Thank you for fighting for our country. Best wishes Emily

NCAA football clinics draws 260 young athletes

Sierra Madre bar conserves water

Suggests customers drink the amber nectar instead

By Shel Segal They might not be ready for the NFL, but they certainly are on their way. Around 260 Pasadena young people braved the heat on Saturday and came out to Jackie Robinson Park for an NCAAsponsored youth football clinic, in conjunction with the Tournament of Roses and the Pasadena Parks Department. The kids learned the basics of the sport, such as passing and running, in addition to getting a lesson on how to stay physically fit. Bill Flinn, executive director for the Tournament of Roses, said it was a great event of which to be a part. “We are bringing kids out not only to do football with them but to do a lot of basics about athletic training,” Flinn said. “It’s also an opportunity for the Tournament of Roses to reach out to the community and be part of it.” Flinn added the young people ranged in age from 5 years old to teenagers. Fred Fimbres, head football coach at Pasadena City College, said there were some important objectives he wanted the children to learn. “We’re out here hopefully to turn some kids on to football and the joys of getting a good workout in, keeping them active,”

Fimbres said. “We’re also talking to them about discipline and teamwork and dedication for a larger group. Hopefully, this impacts their lives in a positive way.” Fimbres added at the clinic he is hoping the youth remember to stay fit and exercise, not matter what sport it is as youth obesity is such a problem in American society. “Everyone can acknowledge in our country we have an epidemic today,” he said. “If we can inspire somebody to move around and get active that’s more important than what sport we’re working on today. We’re doing it through football. Hopefully, we’re teaching and helping kids grow. But it can be any activity. Staying active is an important thing we need to instill in our young people.” But football was the game of the day and Bob Vecchione, chair of the

NCAA Football Youth Initiative Committee, said he hoped the young people made the most of the opportunity. “Learning football fundamentals, proper technique and safety is essential to youth football players’ success on the field,” Vecchione said. “NCAA Football youth clinics provide an opportunity for young athletes to learn these valuable skills and more importantly, to learn the invaluable character-building and sportsmanship lessons needed to be successful off the field.” And if you were not able to make this event, Flinn said don’t worry. Another one will be here before you know it. “Sign up next year,” he said. “This is our fourth one and we’ll do another one next summer.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

Mini marathon marred by maladies and lack of medals Despite the overwhelming heat on Sunday hearty athletes competed in Pasadena Forward’s Half Marathon. Fifteen people were overcome by the heat, and six people were transported to Huntington Hospital.

But to add insult to injury, not all runners got their medals upon finishing. Apparently there was a shortage of the bling to pass out to those who paid their fees to run in the unremitting heat. However the website for Pasadena Forward

offered this consolation prize: “Congratulations to all finishers, and a huge thanks to all of the volunteers who braved the heat from as early as 3:30 am until noon with set up, clean up and everything in between. There were a few shortcomings in our plans this year...If you did not receive your medal, please send us an email at information@pasadenamarathon.org with your bib number. We will be placing a replacement order within a few days and will mail them out just as soon as they arrive. We are sincerely soarry for this disappointing lapse on our behalf but we do hope to make it right.”

Remember the 60’s slogan “Save Water, Shower with a Friend”? Well that conservation adage has now been superseded by a creative restaurant owner who offers a hops and barley solution to the city’s current water crisis. We’ll drink to that, Cheers! –Photo by Terry Miller

El Monte approves balanced budget After weeks of working with City staff, community members and residents, the El Monte City Council unanimously voted to adopt a balanced budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year, meeting the July 1 deadline for the first time in several years. At its meeting on Tuesday, June 25, the City Council adopted a General Fund operating bud-

get totaling $52.9 million. Council members also adopted an Enterprise Fund budget, which includes water and sewer expenses, totaling $5.8 million. The budget includes a projected surplus of $16,000. The balanced budget incorporates a minimal increase in General Fund revenues, along with concessions from employee bargaining units and a 9.6

percent reduction in Citywide operation and maintenance expenditures. As Measure GG sunsets, El Monte is projected to lose $4 million in annual General Fund revenues. The City Council will soon deliberate on bringing a ballot measure to the residents. The City will also have to contend with the salary increases owed to its bargaining units.

California black bear injures Bradbury mastiff By Shel Segal A mastiff was injured by a black bear on Sunday morning while it and a German shepherd were confronted by a mama bear when the dogs got to close to her cubs in Bradbury, sheriff’s deputies said. Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies from the Temple Station said the dogs “will be OK,” despite the larger dog sustaining a one-inch “puncture” wound to its lower back in the 100 block of Mount Olive Drive. “It was a very minor cut on the hind end of the dog,” Sgt. Sherif Morsi said. “We’re not sure if it was bit or clawed. It’s hard to tell from our end.” When deputies arrived at the property, the two dogs were barking uncontrollably at the tree where the mama bear and her two cubs were hiding from the dogs, deputies said. Once the dogs were secured, all three bears climbed down the tree and left the backyard by jumping over the fence and retreating back to the ravine, away from the residential area, deputies said. Neither of them appeared to be injured. Morsi said that these

incidents are all too common in areas that back up against the foothills and special precautions need to be taken by residents. “It’s hot out and you live in a wilderness area,” he said. “You got to protect your pets. It’s best to keep your pets and small children away.” Encounters with these creatures have been numerous over the past 15 years. Foothill neighborhoods are especially apt to have bear visitors during summer and fall months during years when there it

is hot and not a lot of rainfall. Eating from fruit trees and drinking from and swimming in pools, spas and ponds are activities which will most likely increase if the bear populations continue to increase. The Black Bears were introduced into the San Gabriel Mountains in 1933. They are all descendants of 11 bears deported from Yosemite National Park for being troublemakers.

Gone Fishing Saturday, July 6 The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) celebrates summer by fishing for free this Saturday. July 6 is the first of two Free Fishing Days in 2013, when people can try their hand at fishing without having to buy a sport fishing license. All fishing regulations, such as bag and size limits, gear restrictions, report card requirements, fishing hours and stream closures remain in effect. Every angler must have an appropriate report card if they are fishing for steelhead or sturgeon anywhere in the state, or salmon in the Smith and Klamath-Trinity River systems. CDFW offers two Free Fishing Days each year – usually around the Fourth of July and Labor Day weekend – when it’s legal to fish without a sport fishing license. This year, the Free Fishing Days were set for the Saturdays following

Independence Day and Labor Day (July 6 and Sept. 7). Free Fishing Days provide a low-cost way to give fishing a try. Some CDFW regions offer a Fishing in the City program where anglers can go fishing in major metropolitan areas. Fishing in the City and Free Fishing Day clinics are designed to educate novice anglers about fishing ethics, fish habits, effective meth-

ods for catching fish and fishing tackle. Anglers can even learn how to clean and prepare fish for eating. Anglers should check the rules and regulations at www.dfg.ca.gov/regulations/ for the waters they plan to fish. Wardens will be on duty to enforce them.

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.
