Zimmerman acquittal causes near riots in LA; Monterey Peaceful marches in other cities Park PD BY TERRY MILLER arrest AND SHEL SEGAL alleged LAPD and other agencies remained on Tactical Alert Tuesday as a precaucredit card tion against backlash from the Trayvon Martin murscam artist der acquittal of George Zimmerman last Saturday. Police declared an unlawful assembly in South Los Angeles before 10 p.m. Monday after a group of demonstrators protesting the acquittal of George Zimmerman allegedly committed assault, vandalized businesses and jumped on stopped cars. One eyewitness said it was “eerily like the post Rodney King trial that started the 1992 LA Riots.” Meanwhile, most incidents have thus far been somewhat isolated. There were over a dozen arrests Monday night, one for “inciting a riot” and 13 for failure to disperse upon orders of LAPD. Six of those arrested were juveniles . Monday was the third Please see page 6

Political discourse is anything but virtual at Gatto’s online town hall Dozens of local residents clambered into the virtual auditorium created by Assemblyman Gatto on July 10 to ask the Assemblyman questions about the community, legislation, and even a few on his personal interests and perspectives. The event, billed as a "NoTraffic Town-Hall Chat," was the first online event of its kind for Assemblyman Gatto, and inspired participation from constituents throughout the district. Gatto answered twentyseven questions from about fifty people in one hour, or

Monterey Park Police Investigators identified and arrested a woman suspected of multiple incidents of credit card fraud, burglary, and grand theft. Si H. Liu, also known as “Katie,” was arrested Friday, July 12, at her home in La Puente. Liu represents herself as a real estate agent and may own a massage business in the city of Fullerton. Liu speaks Mandarin Chinese and has been a U.S. resident for about 10 years. Investigators have linked her to at least sixteen victims in the San Gabriel Valley and the investigation continues to grow. Victims contacted Liu after reading her advertisements for easy loans in Approximately 100 people marched the streets of Pasadena Wednesday in peaceful protest of the Zimmerman verdict. –Photo by Terry Miller

Senator Liu announces $47 million to retrofit local schools Senator Carol Liu (D- La Cañada) has announced that an estimated $450 million will be available to fund energy efficiency and clean energy projects, including roughly $47 million for schools in the 25th Senate District. Additionally, nearly $50 million will be provided to fund energy projects at California’s 112 community colleges. These projects provide a triple benefit by reducing energy bills, improving school conditions and providing needed jobs to help

employ the 400,000 plus unemployed construction workers in the state, according to a press release set out Monday. “As a main recipient of funds from the Proposition 39 – California Clean Energy Jobs Fund for the upcoming fiscal year, public schools will benefit from long-term energy savings. Clean energy projects will help reduce energy and utility bills due to inefficient lighting, heating, insulation, ventilation, Please see page 4

Violent crime down 7.1 percent, LASD says By SHEL SEGAL Violent crime dropped in areas patrolled by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department over last year by 7.1 percent, according to a report published by the sheriff’s department. However, the number of property crimes increased during that time by nearly 2.0 percent countywide, the same report said. This means the overall crime rate is up nearly 1 percent over last year, the report said. But compared to five years ago, overall crime is down 12.6 percent, the report said. The homicide rate remained steady in the county this year to last year. But the

number of homicides has dropped by nearly 37.8 percent over 2008, the report said. The year with the fewest number of homicides since 1965 was 2012, the report added. Many of the property crimes reported were car burglaries, the sheriff’s department said. The department added there are many things you can do to help prevent having your car burglarized. The first thing is don’t forget to always lock your car doors and do not leave property that looks valuable in plain sight in your car. Basically, don’t be an easy target for opportunist thieves. As laptops, purses, iPads,

Gatto's online town hall event ranged from local issues such as Caltrans work on I-5 and sewer construction in Silver Lake, to national and international issues, such as reinstating the Glass-Steagall Act and addressing air pollution. Several participants also inquired into the Assemblyman’s parenting style and reading interests. One of the most talkedabout topics of the night was the environment, including preserving parks and green spaces, reversing climate change, and investing in sustainable fuels. Responding to a question about climate change, Assemblyman Gatto said that, “The California Legislature has made this issue a priority in our state… I introduced a bill this year that would look into the sustainability of green fuels . . . I am also working to preserve our society's precious

resources -- everything from pushing for more rooftop solar to solving [the] transportation issues [we] discussed earlier.” Earlier in the chat, Gatto advocated for increased funding to the “Safe Routes to School” program and supporting alternative transportation. Gatto also noted his support for increased funding for parks, saying, “I strongly support the protection and sustainability of our natural environment and state parks, and I love the refuge they provide from our hectic lives in the city. The event was not without some humor. One participant asked what Gatto's favorite children's book was. Noting the gridlock in modern Sacramento, one participant asked, “Are any Democrats and Republicans friends in Sacramento?” “Yes,” replied Gatto.

“Some of us try to get along with everyone. The only way to get things done, in any situation, is to treat your colleagues as human beings.” Assemblyman Gatto is planning future town-hall meetings, both in person and online, in the coming months.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s writ, which challenged the release of serial rapist Christopher Evans Hubbart to Los Angeles County, was denied Tuesday. The D.A. asserted that Hubbart has had no nexus to Los Angeles County since 1972 -- with the exception of a brief two-month period when Hubbart was paroled to San Bernardino County but lived in Los Angeles County. Hubbart is a violent sex predator believed to have raped as many as 40 women in a 10 year period. He has admitted to raping 25 women in the Los Angeles area in the early 1970’s and an ad-

portable navigation systems and other electronic devices continue to be popular targets, make sure a would-be thief cannot see these items just by looking inside the car. Deputies added a surprising fact about recent thefts from vehicles: Many people leave valuables in plain sight, or keep their cars unlocked. But by keeping items hidden, or secured in the trunk –or even in the house – you can prevent opportunist thieves from gaining access to your valuables, deputies said. Don’t forget to lock your car, but remember that car windows won’t stop a determined thief, deputies said.

Victims provided the information believing that Liu would obtain loans for them. Instead, Liu allegedly used the credit cards to obtain cash for herself using a credit card machine that she owned.

Thanks to months of advance planning and work, every child will receive individual attention. Professional cosmetologists and Citrus College students will donate a full day of

hair and manicure services, while the USC School of Dentistry and Western University College of Optometry will conduct free dental and vision screenings. Local supporters will also provide food and fun. They include the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), whose popular Mars Rover model will show off its delicate footwork by gently rolling over children. The event also serves as a community resource fair where families can get information from the Department of Social Services, Hear Center, CHAPCare, Child Care Information Services, Monrovia Health Center and Pasadena Public Health, Pacific Clinics, the Red Cross and more.

Monterey Park PD their credit accounts with a promise to pay them back in cash, but she never did. Liu also made photocopies of identification and credit cards prior to returning them to the victims, possibly for the purpose of committing fraud and identity theft in the future. The Monterey Park Police Department urges citizens to be aware of correct financial loan practices and to investigate the legitimacy of any business person promising “easy loans” or requesting personal information such as credit card or bank account information. Fraud suspects frequently use classified

ads to target potential victims, and citizens who have limited English skills are at risk; they are also reluctant to report fraud after it happens. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office filed a 25-count felony complaint against Liu on Tuesday; charges range from Residential and Commercial Burglary to Theft Using an Access card, Possession of Access Card Information, and Grand Theft. Additional victims are encouraged to contact Detective Han at the Monterey Park Detective Bureau; 626-307-1246.

and air conditioning. Each school district will be provided a funding allotment based on the average daily attendance (ADA) and weighted for poverty. In order to ensure the projects proposed meet energy efficiency and clean energy requirements, school districts will need to submit an application to the California Energy Commission prior to receiving funds.

The Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office will allocate funds for community colleges based on the number of full-time equivalent students. Proposition 39, the California Clean Energy and Jobs Act, was approved by the voters in November with more than 60% support. It closed a corporate tax loophole that only benefited out-ofstate corporations. It will

generate about $1 billion a year for California. For the next five years, half of the money will be going to the state’s general fund and the other half toward measures designed to create jobs and save energy. The Yes on Prop 39 campaign was co-chaired by Senator Kevin De León (D-22, Los Angeles), Tom Steyer, and former U.S. Secretary of State George Schultz.”

Summer at Universal Studios Hollywood By Greg Aragon Universal Studios Hollywood will always hold an exciting place in my heart. From the first time I visited as a boy and experienced the behind-the-scene movie magic of the Studio Tour, to my last visit when I encountered the thrilling King Kong 3D ride, the theme park has been a Southern California staple attraction for me. To recapture some of the old memories and to make some new ones, a friend and I recently returned to the park. Our getaway began with Transformers: The Ride-3D, the park’s newest attraction. This immersive ride blurs the line between fiction and reality as it fuses HD 3D media and flight simulation technology to transport guests into fantasy war zone from the actual “Transformers” movie. While strapped into my seat, I was able to fly through space and fight alongside the charac-

ter Optimus as we tried to save the human race. Once earth was safe, we took a trip behind-thescenes on legendary Studio Tour to explore Hollywood’s most famous backlot in the world’s largest working movie studio. Probably my favorite “ride” of any amusement park, this tour travels through 13 city blocks on four acres of the historic lot. Along the tour guests encounter things such as the plane crash from “War of the Worlds,” meet crazy Norman Bates at the Bates Motel from the movie “Psycho,” experience explosive special effects from “Fast and the Furious,” and come face-to-teeth with “Jaws.” As the tram drives along the backlot, comedian Jimmy Fallon comes on the tram’s HD monitors and shows fun movie clips. The Studio Tour also features a journey into Skull Island and a an encounter with King Kong 360 3-D, the world’s largest 3-D ride experience. Created by film producer Peter Jackson, this adventure begins when the tram

enters a darkened soundstage and guests are caught on a bridge, in the middle of a mega-fight between a menacing 35-ft-tall T-Rex and massive King Kong. We got so close to the action we could feel the breath of the monsters and water as it flew from their bodies. To create this attraction, the studio literally surrounds the tram with two 187-ft-wide by 40-ft-high curved screens, representing the equivalent of 16 movie theatre screens. After the studio tour we headed to Krustyland and the boarded The Simpsons ride. With show characters Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie by our side we rode through a kaleidoscope, carnivallike midway, highlighted by state-of-the-art digital projectors that cover an 80 ft. diameter dome surface with an image four times the standard High Definition found in most home theaters, and twice what you’d experience in a normal digital theater. Another cool attraction at Universal Studios is Shrek 4-D, an outrageously

Mike Gatto announces major financial awards for Glendale and Los Angeles Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Los Angeles) announced three major financial awards for Glendale and Los Angeles to help construct new housing and rehabilitate existing housing. The California Tax Credit Allocation Committee (CTCAC) will provide a $1,200,000 dollar tax credit to build affordable housing for veterans in Glendale (at “Veteran Village”) and an additional $300,000 to rehabilitate the Cypress Senior

Living Center in Glendale. “Glendale is home to thousands of senior veterans who served out country,” said Gatto. “My deceased uncle John, a four-year World War II, combat-wounded veteran, lived for over fifty years in Glendale, and I wish such opportunities had been available for him during his silver years.” In addition to the CTCAC credits, the California Department of Housing and Community Development

has also granted a request for $1,500,000 in general program funding to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. The highly competitive funds will be used to provide mortgage-assistance loans to first-time, low-income home buyers. “I thank the Department of Housing and Community Development for working together with local agencies, like Habitat for Humanity, to help provide a place to call home for so many families.”

Zimmerman acquittal sparks numerous protests in Los Angeles

Continued from page 1

night of demonstrations in the Los Angeles area by those infuriated by a sixwoman Florida jury’s acquittal of Zimmerman who killed unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla. He was found Not Guilty of all charges. There have also been reports of those who want to take justice into their own hands and “eliminate” Zimmerman. Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck said the department was “sorely disappointed” by the behavior of about 150 people who broke away from a peaceful vigil Monday night “and vandalized and assaulted” the Crenshaw area. Demonstrations began occurring in California Saturday evening, when word of the Florida verdict arrived. Trouble has repeatedly occurred in Oakland and in Los Angeles, particularly in the Crenshaw district southwest of downtown. The newly inaugurated Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti told a latenight press conference that the trouble was caused by

people exploiting the situation. “The trial that we saw in Florida has ignited passions but we have to make sure that it will not ignite the city,” Garcetti said. “We are outraged and heartbroken over the verdict,” NAACP President Benjamin Jealous said in a statement. “We will pursue civil rights charges with the Department of Justice, we will continue to fight for the removal of Stand Your Ground laws in every state, and we will not rest until racial profiling in all its forms is outlawed.” In another bizarre and violent reaction to Trayvon Martin’s killer’s acquittal, a woman attacked one of the former Chamber Brothers, Lester Chambers as he was performing on stage at the Hayward Music festival. The Mercury News reports the altercation took place once a 43-yearold woman, Dinalynn Andrews Potter, reportedly jumped on stage and knocked down the former Chambers Brothers member while he performed Curtis Mayfield’s “People

Get Ready.” Ironically, one of the Chambers’ Bros’ number one hits in the 1970’s was : “ Love , Peace and Happiness.” As was “ To love somebody.” In Pasadena on Wednesday however the mood was more peaceful: It might have happened nearly 3,000 miles away, but for some here in the San Gabriel Valley it has hit a lot closer to home. With George Zimmerman being acquitted by a Florida jury on July 13 of killing Trayvon Martin in February 2012, more than 100 people gathered at the First African Methodist Episcopalian Church of Pasadena on Wednesday evening to pray and walk in memory of the 17-yearold boy. Rev. Melanie Mays said people here want those to know what was done to Martin was wrong and made even worse by not punishing Zimmerman. “There is a feeling of injustice of what was done to a young black man in Florida,” said Mays, who has been with the church

for seven years. “Just to unite under that and develop a dialogue of peace with our church and our community. Just from the recent week, the last few days, the rioting and the nonsense things that have been happening, I think it is very important that we show a face of what the church is. The church is about peace and understanding and writing to right wrongs.” Martin was an African American boy who was shot and killed by Zimmerman – who is white and Latino – in Florida during an altercation. Zimmerman, who was 28 at the time of the shooting, was acquitted by a six-member, allfemale jury that had five whites on it. Zimmerman’s acquittal has prompted many to accuse the justice system as having a racial bias and has sparked out-of-control riots in south Los Angeles. Mays added she thinks the jury got it wrong this time. “I believe they could have made a better decision,” she said. “They made the decision based on how they perceived it, but we do feel it was incorrect. In this situation we felt like it was a slap in the face.” In addition, Mays said while she does not condone the violence that has swept into south Los Angeles following the verdict, she does understand why it is happening. “When it comes to

those young individuals I think what it comes down to is it’s another way to shout out and say, ‘We feel hurt,’” Mays said. “‘We feel abused, we feel we’re not treated fairly by the police, we’re already suspects and we’re already thought to be losers.’ That hurts and so they hurt back. Their souls cry out and lash out at whatever they can lash out at. On a deeper level I’m sure they’re not even cognizant that they’re tearing down their own neighborhood.” The march attracted 21-year-old college student Natalya Romo to come all the way from the San Fernando Valley. Romo said more needs to be done in Martin’s memory.

“I feel that there are many people who look at this situation from all spectrums of races and feel that race is not involved and I feel that race is involved,” said Romo, who is attending Howard University in Washington D.C. “It is an injustice that someone is let off the hook for killing a black young man. Just the fact that someone was let off while someone is laying in a casket is not right. I feel that shows the value of a black man’s life in this country. The priority isn’t there.” Pasadena resident Barbara McPheeters agreed. “We’re going to have to stick together and we’re going to have to fight for justice,” she said.

Dodger Stadium to host homerun event to help youngsters in need Dodger Stadium will be the site of HathawaySycamores Child and Family Services’ annual fundraiser, Celebrating Children. Those attending the Sept. 24 event will not only be raising money to help fund the crucial mental-health and other support services provided by Hathaway-Sycamores to more than 9,000 children and families annually, but they also will have the unique opportunity to have the entire stadium to themselves, as the Boys in Blue will be battling the Giants in San Francisco. This year’s Celebrating Children, which is being headed up by Sierra Madre resident Ken Goldstein, who also sits on HathawaySycamores’ board of directors, starts at 6:30 p.m. and concludes at 10:30 p.m. The public can purchase tickets to the event, which promises to be especially memorable and includes: Stadium Club cocktail party featuring panoramic Chavez Ravine views; suite-quality food, drink, and desserts throughout the evening; meet-and-greet photo/ autograph session with a former Dodger great; cheering on the Boys in Blue – via

DodgerVision and walls of flat-screen TVs – as they face the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park; live auction; complimentary parking; special gifts and giveaways; sponsor and premium-ticket holders also will enjoy a pre-game VIP stadium tour. The centerpiece of Celebrating Children is the presentation of the HathawaySycamores’ Celebrating Children Award. Each year, the event honors an individual or family that exemplifies the values of integrity, leadership and commitment to the well-being of children, adults, families, and communities. For more than 100 years, these values have served as the foundation for the compassion and care that each child receives at HathawaySycamores. The 2013 Celebrating Children honorees are John and Linda Seiter. Residents of Pasadena, the Seiters also have been longtime supporters of Hathaway-Sycamores. For her part, Linda Seiter served on Hathaway-Sycamores’ Board of Directors from 1996 through 2005. She also has been actively involved in the agency’s annual “Shot-At-A-

Additionally, for more than a decade, the couple has sponsored an annual holiday dinner for the youth in residential treatment at Hathaway-Sycamores’ El Nido campus in Altadena. Currently, the Seiters are directing their support toward Hathaway-Sycamores’ Transitional Independent Living Program – an innovative initiative designed to assist youth emancipating from the foster-care system by providing housing and helping them to master the skills needed to live independently. Commenting on the Celebrating Children Award

recipients, Hathaway-Sycamores’ President and CEO William Martone said, “John and Linda Seiter have bettered the lives of so many people – particularly children – and Hathaway-Sycamores is extremely appreciate of their longstanding support. The Seiters – including their daughters – have always looked beyond themselves and instead focused on how they can help others. They truly are an inspirational family.” To purchase Celebrating Children tickets, or to be a corporate sponsor, visit www.hathaway-sycamores. org or contact Andi Sica at (626) 395-7100 ext. 2516 or e-mail andreasica@hathawaysycamores.org.

According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is investigating whether deputies cheated on the exams that are required for promotions. The Los Angeles Times obtained a mass email Thursday sent within the department announcing the internal affairs investigation.

Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said the department was tipped off on Saturday and Internal Affairs opened an investigation on Monday. “We are taking this very seriously,” he said. It’s not clear how the allegations arose or how many deputies are under investigation, according the Time report.

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

Why Classic?

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

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

able to continue to collect usage data.

Compliance through great patient care

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

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

Our CPAP Circle of Care® program

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

Interested in learning more? www.classicsleepcare.com

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

Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance

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

Skeptical?

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

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.
