LASD probes deputy cheating An internal probe into possible cheating on tests launched 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 Times' report.

Zimmerman acquittal causes friction in LA; Peaceful protests in San Gabriel Valley BY TERRY MILLER AND SHEL SEGAL LAPD and other agencies remained on Tactical Alert last week as a precaution against backlash from the Trayvon Martin murder acquittal of George Zimmerman a week ago 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 night of demonstrations in the Los Angeles area by those infuriated by a sixPlease see page 10

Judge shelves DA's case against Nick Conway Former San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments Executive Director Nick Conway was found not guilty recently when the Superior court threw out the Los Angeles County District Attorney's case against former Director. Conway and his attorney had maintained innocence all along. The District Attorney had originally alleged Conway obtained contracts through his power at SGVCOG that benefitted him financially. In June 2012 the then SGVCOG Executive’s home and office were searched by the DA. Here’e our story from that episode: Sandi Gibbons, Director of Communications at the LA County DA’s office confirmed Wednesday that the District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigation served warrants Please see page 14

Temple City may slap restrictions on smoke shops and e-cigarettes By Shel Segal

The Temple City City Council is looking into whether or not it should put restrictions on smoke and ecigarette shops as the town is in danger of becoming somewhat overrun by small stores marketing the “vape” fad, a published report recently said. The council might be making a decision as early as Aug. 6 as there are five smoke and e-cigarette shops in the city with city staff saying many business people have been looking to open more of these types of stores since January, the report said. The council is looking into placing zoning restrictions on such shops that would disallow them from opening if they are within 1,000 feet of public parks, schools, day care centers or any other nicotine-related businesses, the report said.

In fact, one of the existing stores at the corner of Rosemead Boulevard and Longden Avenue already does not fit the 1,000-foot rule, the report said. A new trend, using ecigarettes or electronic cigarettes has the “smoker” receiving nicotine or flavored water via a heating device that is battery operated and changes liquid into gas, the report said. When the smoker exhales, instead of smoke coming out what is exhaled is water vapor, the report said. Proponents of e-cigarettes believe they can be used by people trying to stop smoking. They also believe these products are safe as tobacco and accompanying chemicals are not inhaled, the report said. Whether they are or aren’t safe is still up for debate as one Southern Cali-

fornia health school said it had not studied the product enough, the report said. However, it looks like Temple City is not going to wait for data to become available and will shortly make a decision. This comes as an internal report is hinting that e-cigarettes pose a problem to overall public health and safety, the report said. One other San Gabriel Valley city – Duarte – is also looking into whether or not restrictions need to be placed on these types of shops. However, unlike Temple City, Duarte has placed a moratorium on voting on zoning restrictions as it is researching the topic and looking for further data to see if, indeed, e-cigarettes are a problem for public health, the report said.

Lawdie, Lawdie, Lawdie. That was Pansy's version of today's OMG. Pansy was an old friend of mine, long gone to Glory, who used that expression anytime a statement needed an oral exclamation point. Now, when I tell you that her full name was Pansy Posey it even adds color to the expression. I am about a generation plus younger that Pansy was, but I was also around several years before OMG came into use. I first saw OMG in an e-mail from a young friend, then I began to hear it in conversations.

I have since confirmed my first assumption that OMG is the modern keep-it-short version of Oh My God. That brings me to my own Lawdie, Lawdie, Lawdie or OMG. In the mail last Saturday I received my first, of what I'm sure will be many, 2014 calendar from one of the friends of the animals groups. In fact, they sent me two copies of it, one for me and one to share. I must tell you that if you feel lonely at times and thus would like to receive lots of mail, just make a donation to a friend of the animals group. Once you donate to one, you will soon receive pleas from many. Last year alone I received 18 calendars plus lots of follow-up mail. Don't worry, you will receive follow-up mail whether or not you donate. Most or all are good

groups working for a good cause, some more effectively than others. Unless you are into decorating with calendars, somewhere along the line you kind of have to get selective and check out who uses the money most efficiently. In selecting, don't forget to check the smaller local rescue groups who can't afford to send calendars. There is also a relatively new group that is supporting research for permanent birth control dog and cat food. Check them out at Alex@600MillionDogs. org or phone (954) 4649331 or write 600 Million, Box 1065, Pompano Beach, Fl 33061. Just think, no more costly and painful spay/neuter surgeries, no more trapping, no more over-population and a lot fewer calendars. Lawdie, Lawdie, Lawdie or OMG, wouldn't that be great!

Teen history docents to play role at Sierra Madre Library

Lifeline for Pets Cat of the Week: Meet "Carrot," our one-eyed wonder! Well, okay, so he has a funny name and only one eye, but it’s NO problem-CARROT copes very well, and is all the more loving and snuggly for it! He’s sensitive, sweet, and gentle. Don’t overlook him just because of his eye. CARROT is only about 3 years old--past the crazy kitten stage but still young in cat years! He's been waiting a long time for a real home, but keeps getting passed up. He is healthy, neutered, and needs no meds. He gets along well with other cats and people. CARROT will like to stay close to you even at bedtime, as he seems to

need that security. We hope that being seen in the Beacon News papers will bring lots of calls to adopt this handsome, special boy. Call Shazi at 626-6769505 or Kathy at 626-7971753 for an adoption application or more information on this cat or any other cat on our website. See us in person most Sundays at Petsmart, 3347 E.

Sierra Madre local history will get a big boost with a new grant just received by the Sierra Madre Public Library. The grant of $7,500 will enable the Library to train teen volunteers as history docents using new Digital Storyboard technology at the Library’s Local History Room and at the Richardson House museum. Recruiting and training of teens will begin in September. The California State Library awarded funding

of the grant titled “Sierra Madre, Teens and Treasures – Teen History Docents.” The grant will expand the Library’s summer teen volunteer program into a year-round program by training teens as docents. First step will be to hire a part-time coordinator who will recruit and train the teens. The volunteer docents will give “tours” of local history using the new Digital Storyboards. Five teens at a time will train and give tours during a

five-week period. A total of 25 teens will be part of the program during the grant period, then the library will continue the program after the grant period ends. Library Director Carolyn Thomas said, “We are delighted to share our city’s rich local history collection with more people through the Digital Storyboards and are pleased that we can expand our summer volunteer program throughout the year. It’s a great combination of resources.”

City, county consider new library in Temple City The City of Temple City and County of Los Angeles Public Library are conducting a joint Library Needs Assessment Survey to solicit input on local library usage and needs, and encourage community members to respond to a brief questionnaire online<mailto:https:// www.surveymonkey.com/ s/6WZQNWG>, or in-person at City Hall or Temple City Library. The survey is part of the ongoing Civic Center Master Plan, a comprehensive effort by both agencies to revitalize the area around Temple City Park. Responses from the Library Needs Assessment Survey will inform options and possibilities for improving library services, programming, resources and facilities—including a possible new library. As project consultant Linda Demmers explains,

the survey will identify the community’s library usage and needs—including collections and programs— and ultimately determine minimum space requirements in the development of a building program for a new library. “Libraries are no longer just places to study— they are exciting educational and cultural centers that offer programs ranging from painting lessons, to computer skills classes,” said Councilmember Vincent Yu, who with Mayor Pro Tem Carl Blum serve on the standing committee for the Civic Center Master Plan. “A new library as part of a new Civic Center is a key strategy in the revitalization of the east side of our downtown,” adds Yu. “With this survey, we have a great opportunity to start dialogue not only about building a new library, but ensure that any

new facility meets the actual needs of our community, and addresses recent changes and trends in library usage and technology,” said Mayor Cynthia Sternquist, who serves as a County Library Commission representative for the Fifth Supervisorial District. As she also notes, the increasing popularity of digital library collections is drastically reshaping the library discussion, since storage requires “no more room than a computer hard drive.” The survey is now live and available on the City website at www.templecity. us<http://www.templecity. us>, and in-person at City Hall and Temple City Library. Chinese-language surveys are available inperson only. For more information about the project, contact the City Manager’s Office at (626) 285-2171, ext. 2322.

Routes introduced for possible Temple City trolley system

Duarte Residents to Celebrate the City's 30th Annual National Night Out - Aug. 6 Hundreds of Duarte residents are expected to participate in the citywide "going away party" for crime at block parties, cookouts and ice cream socials. Duarte will join citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 10,000 communities across the nation in participating in National Night Out, sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. The crime, drug and violence prevention program is designed to send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized against crime and fighting back. Neighborhood Watch area coordinators and block captains, with the support of Duarte Public Safety and Duarte Sheriffs, are helping to coordinate the activities. Residents can contact the Public Safety Office to gather ideas, event flyers, and to schedule a Deputy to visit their block party. Duarte depu-

ties, firefighters, and city officials will visit each gathering to pass out emergency preparedness information, coloring books to kids, and other goodies provided by official local sponsor, Target. One hard-working Duarte Neighborhood Watch area will be celebrating its block party in style as winners of a Neighborhood Watch Block Captain Recruitment contest. The Duarte Public Safety Commission launched the competition among Block Captains earlier this year to help expand the Neighborhood Watch program from 145 neighborhoods to 250 or more. _________ has won a $500 block party courtesy of Burrtec Waste Industries, the City's contracted waste hauler for recruiting the most new Neighborhood Watch captains, ___. The effort has now boosted the number of Duarte Neighborhood Watch neighborhoods to _____. "Neighborhood Watch

is one of the most effective and least costly ways to prevent crime and reduce fear because it fights the isolation that crime both creates and feeds upon. It forges bonds among area residents, helps reduce burglaries and robberies, and improves relations between law enforcement and the communities they serve," said Duarte Public Safety Director, Brian Villalobos. Residents are invited to bring donations of canned goods to the neighborhood gatherings. Members of the Duarte Community Service Council and Duarte Public Safety Department will stop by to collect the donations that will benefit the community’s needy. For more information on how to host a National Night Out gathering, contact the Duarte Public Safety Department, call Aida Torres at Duarte Public Safety (626) 359-5671, ext. 316, or visit www.accessduarte.com/publicsafety.

With the City’s fixedroute transit study nearing completion, see the routes being proposed at the presentation to the Parks and Recreation and Public Safety commissions on Wednesday, July 24, 6 p.m., in Council Chambers (5938 Kauffman Ave.). The meeting is open to the public and will share the project team’s recommendations for possible travel routes, based on public input gathered to date. As part of the study, the City led an extensive outreach effort including hundreds of survey responses; and a public route-planning workshop in April to identify desired destinations. “I’m excited to see how well the consultants will translate public input into a working community transit system,” said Mayor Cynthia Sternquist. “A local public transportation

service would be such a tremendous and valuable addition to our community— especially for students and seniors who may not have access to a car, and even those looking to ‘go green’ and reduce their gas mileage.” The establishment of a new transit system would be in line with the City’s strategic approach to achieving sustainability, economic development and customer service goals. In light of recent “complete streets” initiatives to improve walking and biking facilities, a community shuttle would add another transportation option to reduce driving and congestion. In particular, bus stops in commercial areas will increase access and support local businesses. Possible scenarios for vehicles might even integrate an old-fashioned trolley appearance, creating a

unique regional attraction while paying homage to the community’s Red Car heritage. After the presentation before the joint commission, the project team will incorporate any additional input before making a final recommendation for Council consideration in late summer. If adopted, the City would commence implementation procedures—involving the selection and procurement of capital and an operations contract, as well as the development of a comprehensive marketing plan. By staff estimation, should a recommendation be formally adopted, deployment could be expected as early as next summer. For more information about the joint commission meeting or the fixed-route transit study, call City Hall at (626) 285-2171. R ED

Extreme strength and fitness displayed by athletes in competition

San Gabriel Scouts join Jamboree in West Virginia

Have you ever tried to hang from a chin up bar with one hand? Two local athletes Bill Weinstock from Sierra Madre and Jack Lynch from Arcadia had a heated competition in one of the challenges in the Extreme Strength and Fitness. Weinstock edged the 70 year old Jack Lynch by hanging on the chin up bar for 64 seconds. Lynch did 57 seconds. Lynch went on to do 27 chin ups to win the gold medal for men between 70-74 years of age. The Extreme Strength and Fitness tested 8 different disciplines. They were: 1. Rope Climb 2. Standing Long Jump 3. Pullups or Chinups 4. Heavy Shot Put

On July 15, 60 Boy Scouts from the San Gabriel Valley joined 35,000 Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts from across the country for the 2013 National Scout Jamboree at the Summit Bechtel National Scout Reserve in West Virginia for 10 days of adventure. In less than a day the Jamboree site was turned into a city of 40,000.

tures in parks. Troop A327 traveled to a local church which is 225 years old. At the church the troop helped clear brush and spread mulch. After the project on the way back to Jamboree, the troop talked about how good it felt to help others. We could see that the city really needed our help since they did not have any young volunteers in their community who were able to help. On Saturday 40,000 Scouts, Ventures, and visitors enjoyed a stadium show featuring great entertainers. Mike Rowe host of the Discovery channel’s show Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe told Scouts that “a Scout is clean but not afraid to get dirty.” Then the King of Sweden, King Carl XVI Gustaf led the crowd in a cheer which involved raising hands in the air, stomping our feet, and making a swishing sound. The night ended with a performance by the band “3 Doors Down” who took the stage to perform some of their hits including “Here With-

out You”, “Kryptonite” , and “When I’m Gone.” During the performance, Scouts got on their feet as beach balls sailed through the air, bouncing along their raised hands. There was also scheduled to be a fireworks display which would have been the tenth largest in the country. However due to a predicted storm on Saturday the fireworks show was shown on Sunday instead. Almost every day we got rain at our camp site. Luckily, the rain on Saturday did not happen until after the stadium show ended. Around 7:30 p.m. while Troop A327 was finishing our dinner we witnessed hundreds of lightning strikes within just a few miles. High winds and thunderstorms hit our camp site. Our tents and tables became drenched in water. Anywhere we walked around the Jamboree site the ground was muddy. National Scout Jamboree was a great experience and the Scouts from Troop A327 really enjoyed it.

El Monte Union High School District recognized by EPA by Anne Donofrio-Holter The efforts of the El Monte Union High School District to save energy, the environment and money has been recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) ENERGY STAR program. "We’ve saved over $593,000 in 16 months through our energy conservation programs," said El Monte Union High School District Energy Manager Jay Kim. "The district was awarded with the EPA’s 10% ENERGY STAR Leader Award and a 2013 Leader Top Performer award." ENERGY STAR is a voluntary EPA program that delivers environmental benefits and financial value through superior energy efficiency. Since 1992, the program has worked with businesses and public-sector organizations to transform the way that commercial buildings and industrial plants use energy.

lio of facilities that have reduced its overall energy use by 10% or more. The Leader Top Performer Award recognizes organizations that own a portfolio of facilities that on average rank in the top 25% of energy efficient buildings compared to others in the same geographic location. According to Kim, the El Monte Union High School District is one of two California school districts that received the 10% distinction award this year and one of seven California school districts to receive the Leader Top Performer Award in 2013.

"We are extremely pleased with the progress our district has made in reducing energy costs and our carbon footprint," said El Monte Union High School District Superintendent Nick Salerno. "Special thanks go to all staff members and students for their outstanding efforts." By the end of 2012, with help from ENERGY STAR, American families and businesses saved more than $230 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.8 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.

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. Lines of print may be blurred in the center or the lines may be crooked. manage everyday activities again.

Zimmerman acquittal Continued from page 1

woman 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 late-night 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-year-old 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-year-old 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, all-female 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.

ing a water tender, arrived at the scene and witnessed a fully involved tractor trailer fire on the side of the freeway. Although fire appeared to consume the vehicle, firefighters quickly extinguished the flames, confining the fire to the tractor only and preserving the trailer with little to no

fire damage. The cause of the fire appears to be mechanical in nature. According to the driver of the truck, the fire began after the truck suddenly and inexplicably lost power. No collision occurred, nor were any other vehicles involved in the incident.

CAPAC Members meet with President Obama

Discuss immigration reform, need for diversity in his administration On Tuesday, 22 Members of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) met with President Barack Obama at the White House. The meeting covered immigration reform, increasing diversity among presidential appointments, improving language access in enrolment for the Affordable Care Act, and pressing issues impacting Native Hawaiians and Pacific Island Territories, including federal recognition for Native Hawaiian self governance and equitable funding and treatment for the territories. Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27), CAPAC Chair said “The beauty of the American Dream is that no one has a claim to it, but everyone has a stake in it. CAPAC’s meeting with President Obama focused on promoting and securing this promise for all Americans.” “President Obama recognizes that good ideas can come from anywhere – and

anyone. CAPAC and the President agree that passing comprehensive immigration reform is as vital to our economy as it is to our national security. “But safeguarding opportunity also involves fostering talent, and ensuring government leadership reflects the diversity of our country. That is why CAPAC Members urged President Obama to address the disproportionate under-representation of Asian Americans in the federal government.

“Today’s meeting was very productive, and I appreciate the President’s receptiveness and willingness to address our concerns. President Obama has demonstrated throughout his presidency that he understands the needs of the Asian Pacific American community, and that fact was reinforced today. We look forward to working with the President to ensure American opportunity is safeguarded for generations still to come.”

Lost World War I medals reunited with recipient’s family While working in the Monrovia Police Department Property and Evidence Room, Property Officer Tom Carroll came across a box of unclaimed property from years past, containing amongst other personal possessions, military medals from the United States Army, including a “Purple Heart” from World War I. The Purple Heart had been awarded retroactively in 1935 to Frank Q. Newton, who had been injured in 1919 while serving on the front lines, nearly 100 years ago. The Purple Heart is the oldest military award still given to members of the United States Military and is awarded to those who have been wounded or killed while serving. Property Officer Tom Carroll, a United States Army veteran and recipient of the Purple Heart himself, immediately recognized the box that contained the medal and felt the importance of reuniting this military decoration with the family of the recipient. Initially, he contacted the Purple Heart Foundation, the repository for in-

formation on Purple Heart recipients. Unfortunately, this attempt met with no success, as the foundation has only been in existence for just over fifty years. Tom then began searching law enforcement databases, but again, was unsuccessful. He then sought assistance from the Police Department’s Technology Bureau Supervisor, Jim Emett, who began searching through public genealogical databases for information. He entered the name and army unit of Frank Q. Newton, search-

ing his military records, and eventually was able to positively identify him, which ultimately led to identifying his living relatives. Subsequent searches in law enforcement databases and contacting two other outside agencies finally revealed the recipient’s family currently resides in Northern California. The family knew the story of their father receiving the Purple Heart, but had no idea his medals still existed, and they were Please see page 14

On Thursday, July 18, 2013, at 6:00 p.m., Arcadia Firefighters responded to a reported brush fire in the Peck Road Water Conservation Park, 5401 N. Peck Road, Arcadia. Upon arrival, Arcadia Fire Battalion Chief Mike Lang reported a ½ acre brush fire burning freely in the basin. Firefighters immediately began suppression and search and

rescue operations. High temperatures, low humidity, and dry conditions, contributed to the rapid growth of the fire, which quickly encompassed three acres. Approximately 100 firefighters from Arcadia, Monrovia and Los Angeles County Fire Departments joined forces to battle the blaze, including air support and hand crews from Los

Angeles County. The fire was subdued within two hours and completely extinguished before midnight. No loss of life or property was sustained. Although the exact cause of the fire remains undetermined, Fire Investigators identified the origin of the fire to be in a homeless encampment in the gravel pit.

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.

Nick Conway “did nothing wrong”… Continued from page 1

FIND YOURSELF AT

PCC

Wednesday morning related to a conflict of interest investigation by the Public Integrity Division involving Nick Conway and the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments. Investigators served warrants at Conway’s home and the offices of Arroyo Associates. The DA’s office would not give out further information due to the ongoing criminal investigation Nicholas T. Conway is the President of Arroyo Associates, Inc. As a management consultant with over 30 years of public sector experience, he has conducted hundreds of organizational, operations, and management studies of virtually every local government function. Prior to forming Arroyo Associates in 1990, Conway was the Principal-in-Charge of the government consulting practice of the Los Angeles office of Arthur Young & Company. In his capacity as the Executive Director of SGVCOG he “fosters inter-agency and regional coordination to ensure the effective planning and provision of various public services.” According to the website Conway has also served as one of the founders of the Vermont Slauson Economic Development Corporation in South Central Los Angeles and the Amateur Athletic Foundation Rose Bowl Aquatic Center in Pasadena, and served as a board member of the Pasadena Child Guidance Clinic where he assisted in its reorganization into the Pacific Clinics The often criticized SGVCOG has been under the scrutiny of many, particularly in Sierra Madre in recent years. John Harabedian

is delegate for Sierra Madre and Nancy Walsh is the alternate. Conway is a contracted executive director for the SGVCOG and provides staff for the organization with his company, based in Alhambra. Board Officers include Mary Ann Lutz who is the Mayor of Monrovia and was elected as 1st vice president of the SGVCOG in 2012. Mary Ann has served as the Mayor of Monrovia since 2009 and was first elected to the Monrovia City Council in 2003. Mary Ann also served as the chairperson of the SGVCOG EENR committee from 20072011. She is also a representative to the Gold Line Phase II Joint Powers Authority, a representative to the Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts, and is a member of the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Becky Shevlin is alternate. Joseph Gonzales is a Councilmember of South El Monte and serves San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments as the 2nd Vice President. At the end of his present term in 2013, Councilman Gonzales will have a served for 17 years on the South El Monte City Council. Joseph represents the City of South El Monte on various regional and state boards working on economic development, housing, transportation and state legislation. Barbara Messina is the Vice Mayor of Alhambra and was elected as President of the SGVCOG in 2012. Barbara has served on the Board of SGVOG since July 2009. She was first elected to the Alhambra City Council in 1986, and served as Mayor for three terms. Barbara also

represents District #34 as a member of SCAG’s Regional Council and its Transportation and Communications Committee. She is also past President of the Independent Cities Association. Peter Amundson of Arcadia is a delegate and alternate is Bob Harbict. Temple City is represented by Fernando Vizcarra and alternate is Tom Chavez. In Pasadena Terry Tornek is Delegate and Mc Austin is alternate. COG is a joint powers authority, and over 30 cities, three county supervisors and three water agencies are members from Pasadena to Claremont to Diamond Bar to Montebello.” Judge Norm Shapiro ruled Nick Conway did nothing wrong and dismissed all four felony conflict-ofinterest charges steamrolled against the former head of the 31-member planning agency. "The court feels there is no crime here, period," Shapiro ruled . SGVCOG's governmental structure was actually put on trial as much as Conway with numerous news and blog reports of the alleged wrong-doings of SGVCOG. Conway’s attorneys said much of the case was a ‘political vendetta’ against Conway by former SGVCOG president Tom King. Judge Shapiro, in permitting the defense's motion to dismiss the case said there may have been those with an “ax to grind” against Conway. Judge Shapiro asserted a conflict of interest in Conway's actions simply did not exist.

amazed and grateful when they learned the medals would be returned to them. Property Officer Tom Carroll had the medals mounted in a shadow box for the family, and the medals were hand delivered to the family at the Los Angeles International Airport on July 23, 2013. Frank Q. Newton served as a frontline Ambulance Wagoner in the European Theater during the First World War. He was severely injured from exposure to mustard gas while serving on the front lines for the United States Army. He died in 1975 in San Diego, California.

El Monte Union High School District’s girls staters feted at El Monte City council meeting

Life Remembered Jack Biesek I have taken the liberty to write my own obituary and I beg your indulgence herewith. Good-bye to my dear family and my life on earth, including decades of living in the garden of Eden (See Canyon and San Luis Obispo). To my many friends and acquaintances'? I say thank you for a lovely life and for your kindness and affection. At the end of the day it is LOVE that we take with us and I've had a mountain of love in my life. I look forward to the next evolution of my soul essence, for I believe that my spirit will live on in some new form and I welcome that new form. Based on what we see and the little that we know about the universe from our perspective here on earth (using our limited glimpse of life's vibratory energy based on observations of the visible spectrum of light), we are part of a huge miracle of energy flow that is beyond comprehension by the human mind (yet worth trying to comprehend as we expand our minds). I find comfort knowing that my ability to love people as well as life and the earth and the cos-

mos will carry me forward to a new adventure that will enhance me (and my essence). In recent years, I developed a fondness for the universe and

all its glory. The big picture of what is going on easily supersedes the petty things in life. Our cultural beliefs, based on the media, television, history, the written word, gossip and innuendos, are comfortable distractions that are merely self-limiting stories that we all believe in, and thus limit ourselves and choose to conform to "consensus reality" for the sake of comfort and security. My gift of having an artist's sensibility and curiosity, as well as a love for all people,

has allowed me to move a bit beyond consensus reality. This provided me with a flexible vision and a personalized life story - one that I have chosen and invented. What could be better than that? I hope you all get to live your dreams to the fullest. Life is short. Take that trip. Take that risk. Love yourself and shine your light on others. I will leave you with my neopledge of allegiance (I wrote this about 10 years ago). It has replaced the American pledge for me and has been a guiding light. I hope it brings you some open-ended awareness. I pledge allegiance to the earth, the sun, the sky and the stars and to the universe from where we came our source, unnamable, with mystery and miracles for all. Kind Regards, Jack Raymond Biesek Jack Biesek was an Environmental Graphic Artist who worked on Monrovia Library – The Getty – Pasadena City College among many others in California and New Mexico. Jack was born in South Pasadena and passed away Saturday, June 29, 2013 at his home in San Luis Obispo.

710 tunnel Continued from page 1

the rally that featured several local politicians who are opposed to the proposed project that the amount of traffic that would pass through the area is enough to make her say no to the extension. “For me, personally, it’s all about the numbers,” Bolan said. “There’s about 44,000 vehicles that go through this area per day currently. It’s predicted that if the tunnel is built about 180,000 vehicles will pass through this area. That’s a four times increase. Hence, an increase in pollution, congestion, all of it … Why would you build a tunnel, a project of this magnitude if it’s so expensive, will increase congestion and increase pollution? I don’t get it.” She added she does not want to see that traffic make its way up Interstate 210 to where she lives. “It’s shear volume,” Bolan said. “If you have four times the amount of traffic that’s going through this section, a good portion of that is going to split off and go in my

neighborhood.” In addition, Bolan said the tunnel would just be too dangerous for motorists if it is built “History has shown that tunnels present a particular type of danger, especially fire,” Bolan said. “You can’t mitigate a tunnel fire.” Former Assemblyman Anthony Portantino agreed. “A tunnel of that size inherently brings risks,” Portantino said. “We haven’t seen any evacuation plan. We haven’t seen any type of safety plan or anything that addresses any of the fault lines. They haven’t put one credible piece of information on the table to show this is a safe way to mitigate traffic in the San Gabriel Valley. And you see hundreds and thousands of people expressing that concern. The facts are on our side and they’re losing this battle based on their own false information. Portantino added the cost of building the tunnel in actual dollars is too great. “Here’s a situation

where we’re spending millions and millions of dollars of taxpayer money on a failed process,” he said. “You can’t bring more cars and more trucks into a region and think somehow traffic and pollution will decrease. A third grader could figure out that’s a faulty thesis, but yet we’re continually sold that thesis without any substantial data that shows this will improve the quality of life for the San Gabriel Valley.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

At the July 16, 2013 Regular Meeting of the El Monte City Council, this year’s Girls’ State Delegates from the El Monte Union High School District received official recognition by the Council. Esthela Torres de Siegrist, President and Girls’ State Chairwoman from the El Monte American Legion Auxiliary Unit 261 introduced the young ladies, who, in turn, spoke briefly about their recent experiences as Delegates to this year’s Girls’ State Session held at ClaremontMcKenna College. After thanking their respective high school principals, assistant principals, counselors, teachers, their families, and the ladies from the American Legion Auxiliary, each Delegate spoke glowingly about all they encountered at the Girls’ State Session.

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 POTENTIAL BIDDERS If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on a property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-800281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www. recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case TS No. 11-0022446. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.

Small business development center to open consulting office in Duarte city hall

Residents' voices heard by LASD at Temple Station Continued from page 1

porated area of Duarte. Deputies and support staff went door to door for several hours asking residents what they felt about their particular neighborhood. Braving the heat to meet the residents and solicit information regarding criminal activity as well as quality of life issues, deputies and volunteers spoke with over 800 people. This past Saturday July 20, Chris Nee and fellow officers from Temple Station offered the results from that previous Saturday’s survey. Residents seemed delighted that the department was making a determined effort to tackle a complex problem in urban areas of Los Angeles County not covered by other police agencies. It seemed, surprisingly, that the number one complain residents have in these areas is traffic. Then, loud parties/drug/gang activity. As the ‘cost-neutral program’ expands, it will multiply the field forces

of all Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Now all the data is collected from last Saturday’s survey, Nee and his emissaries will “interact with the community to develop and implement strategies to combat those issues identified by residents.” Capt. Nee tolf the twenty of so residents gathered that he was pleased with the results and that his officers will make a concerted effort to make more patrols and address residents’ concerns. These determinations may include campaigns focused on burglary suppression, narcotics clampdowns, gang mitigation, graffiti/vandalism reduction, juvenile delinquency, neighborhood safety after dark issues, abandoned vehicles, stray animal control, illegal vendor enforcement, loud parties, and enhanced traffic enforcement. Capt. Christopher Nee announced the results at a Town Hall meeting Saturday, July 20 at 1PM in Pa-

mela Park. Capt. Nee said was delighted that the volunteers and deputies went to over 800 houses during Saturday’s fact finding mission but moreover was pleased that there was such a good and positive reaction what the police are trying to do. Nee said that it really is about “getting back to the basics…community policing and getting to know the neighbors and them getting to know and trust us.” “We’re excited about (the survey) and will have120 days work on the problems identified.” Nee said.

Duarte City Hall will soon house a satellite office of the Small Business Development Center hosted by Pacific Coast Regional (PCRSBDC), where small business owners will be able to access free help and guidance from a team of qualified business consultants. Funded by the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) and grants, the PCR-SBDC office is scheduled to open in August, and will offer conveniently located assistance to businesses in Duarte and the surrounding east San Gabriel Valley cities. The establishment of the PCR-SBDC office in Duarte is the result of a collaborative effort by the Duarte Chamber of Commerce, City of Duarte, and State Senator Carol Liu's office to help struggling small business owners succeed. Initially, the office will be open on the second and fourth Thursdays a month from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm offering by appointment, one on one consulting services on matters including strategic planning, financial software and social media training, development of a business plan, and guid-

ance on obtaining capital. PCR-SBDC originated the small business consultation program in Pasadena three years ago to help business struggling in the difficult economy, said Constance Anderson, PCR-SBDC Executive Director. Many small businesses have benefitted from the program and the demand for services has grown. To make the program available to as many businesses as possible, and to offer a convenient location for small businesses east of Pasadena, the PCR-SBDC approached the Duarte Chamber of Commerce and City of Duarte to learn if Duarte would be interested in providing office space for the program. It was just what the Chamber and City had been looking for as a way to help support local businesses. "We're very pleased to have this resource come to our city. Successful businesses help cities grow and thrive. We want to do everything we can to support them," said City Councilmember, Tzeitel Paras-Caracci. In 2012, the City of Duarte was named "Most

Business Friendly City" in Los Angeles County with a population of 60,000 or under by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation. Local businesses received their first introduction to the program on July 16 from PCR-SBDC Executive Director Anderson at the Duarte Chamber of Commerce monthly networking breakfast at California Skewers restaurant. Natalie Orta of the SBA will also promote the program at the Chamber's Quarterly Small Business Seminar at the Duarte Community Center on Aug. 14. Official opening of the Small Business Consultation Program office in Duarte will be preceded by a 2-hour orientation on August 15 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in the Duarte Community Center. The following week on August 22, SBDC staff will begin scheduling the individual consulting appointments with businesses. For further information, call the Duarte Chamber of Commerce at (626) 357-3333 or Duarte City Hall at (626) 357-7931, ext. 221.
