complaint with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office Public Integrity Division. Office Spokesperson Jane Robison confirmed on Tuesday that a complaint had been filed. However, she could not offer any specifics about the complaint.

It hasn’t happened since 2009, but the gates are finally opening back up. The Pasadena Fire Department is looking to hire new firefighter trainees and held its first testing session Monday at the Pasadena Convention Center. Judging by the number of applicants, the department will have its pick of the crop. “We are testing over 4,000 applicants for firefighter trainees,” said Lisa Derderian, public information officer for the department. “Out of that 4,000, approximately 10 will make it out and go to the firefighter academy. It’s a very competitive field. It’s not just a job, it’s a career. There’s very little turnover, which is a good thing. But in the last couple of years we’ve had a lot of retirements. So, we’re now at the point where we do need to fill those positions.”

Cabaret star Michael York battles rare disease - Amyloidosis Celebrating his 50th year as a professional actor, Michael York, OBE, visited Pasadena Tuesday evening to discuss his recent fight with Amyloidosis, a rare and often misdiagnosed disease that connected him to the Fink family locally. This is the first time York has spoken publicly in the States about the disease that took a serious toll on the popular actor’s life. “It all began two years ago, when I was doing a miniseries with Tom Conti,” he says. “I noticed I was getting dark circles under my eyes. At first, I was able to cover them up with make-up which for an actor is pretty normal, but it got worse and was really becoming evident, so I had to

El Monte breaks ground on new commercial building The City of El Monte held a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday, August 13 for a new commercial office building that is expected to serve as a catalyst for future development in the area. “This location has been a diamond in the rough for a while and with a lot of hard work from city staff and the developer, it is now a bright spot for our community,” said Councilman Juventino “J” Gomez. “We look forward to more projects like this one that boosts our city’s economic future.” Slated to be built on a 1.29-acre plot of land at 12346 Valley Blvd. that once housed two buildings and a nonconforming billboard, the commercial building will be built by Art Weiss Industrial Properties on the south side of Valley Boulevard, east of Durfee Avenue. “This project raises the bar for future developments in the area and will help people see the value in investing in El Monte,” said Councilwoman Victoria Martinez. The 27,280-square-foot building will consist of eight

units ranging in size from 3,100 square feet to 3,800 square feet. Each unit will contain office space on the mezzanine level and flexible floor space on the ground level that can be utilized for additional office, retail/ wholesale commercial, showroom and storage space. A sign of an improved economy, all eight units were sold before construction even started. “I’m really impressed that the developer has already sold the units, as the tenants will have a vested interest in the welfare of our city,” said Councilman Bart Patel. “This groundbreaking ceremony is an exciting event as we reflect

on the divergence of creativity and hard work by both Art Weiss Industrial Properties and city staff.” The project design demonstrates compliance with the principles of the Community Design Element of the General Plan, including eliminating blight and neighborhood deterioration by turning a vacant and underutilized portion of land into a productive commercial use and facilitating the development of a strong commercial element within the City. The project will bring a five-fold increase in property taxes to the City and reflect 50 to 75 new jobs in El Monte.

We had some fun with puns last week. This week let's just try some complications of English that show why it can be a hard language to learn. l. The bandage was wound around the wound. 2. The farm was used to produce produce. 3. The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse. 4. We must polish the Polish furniture. 5. He could lead if he would get the lead out. 6. The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert. 7. Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present. 8. A bass was painted on the head of the bass. 9. When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes. 10. I did not object to the object. 11. The insurance was invalid for the invalid. 12. There was a row among the oarsmen about

how to row. 13. They were too close to the door to close it. 14. The buck does funny things when the does are present. 15. A seamstress was a good sewer until she fell down into a sewer line. 16. To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow. 17. The wind was too strong to wind the sail. 18. After a number of injections my jaw got number. 19. Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear. 20. I had to subject the subject to a series of tests. 21. How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend? ***** There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England nor French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. Quicksand works slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth beeth?

One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make ammends but not one ammend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it? Is it an odd, or an end? If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up and down at the same time and, in which you fill in a form by filling it out, and in which an alarm goes off by going on. Why do you drive on a parkway and park on a driveway? When the stars are out they are visible, but when the lights are out they are invisible. And, while we're at it, why doesn't dough rhyme with rough or Buick with quick? English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race which, of course, is not a race at all.

Sierra Madre residents demand answers from city Dear Editor: In a recent newspaper article, it is said that the people are upset with the increases put into place by the City Council. It is far worse than that, the people are angry and disgusted with the City's actions. They try to appease the people by saying we made an adjustment of the 20% reduction to two periods, summer and winter, instead of one. This is like taking two pills instead of one to cure a migraine headache. They further say that if you don't reduce (conserve) by another 20% then we will fine you. This is like saying that the people are too fat so they need to reduce (conservation), so you need to eat two meals a day instead of three (first 20% reduction), and now that you have done that, we want you to eat one meal a day (second 20% reduction), and further if you don't do that, we are going to hit you in the head and fine you double the money!! They further think that they did something by eliminating the water restrictors, which were not there in the first place. On the subject of the City's bonded indebtedness, one Council Person brought up the subject and was quick-

ly responded by another Council Person that what is so wrong about that? It was stated that when a person buys a house, that they generally have a mortgage. There are two big differences when the City engages in long-term loans, the first of which is that when the City does this, they are mortgaging everybody else's property. Secondly, it is very doubtful that an individual engages in 5, 6, 7 or 8 mortgages, which the city has done. You don't solve your credit rating by increasing your financial reserves. You increase your rating by paying or pre-paying on your debts. Additionally, while a person is working on paying off their mortgage, they must also maintain their property. They must mow the lawn, vacuum the house, and keep everything clean. They must also eat, brush their teeth, clean their clothes and shine their shoes They must also keep their property in repair. Replace the rusty or leaky pipes and faucets, replace the leaking water heater, and the furnace and ductwork. They must also paint and replace the roof when it leaks. All of these are "maintenance" items

and not "capital improvements" like the City likes to call such items. Can the City change its ways? Do they really need to say to the people, if you don't conserve on your use of water, then we might have to sell the water franchise, or sub-let the Police Department, or the Fire Department. Is that all they can think of? Why not deal with the cause instead of the effect? Repair the system and get out of debt. Is that too difficult or can it be done? The people believe all of this can be done by simply putting the City's house in order. You simply need to put one foot in front of the other and start by taking little steps in order to cure the cause for the shape we are in. The people have enough financial problems of their own, and do not need the City to compound that problem. They are being attacked financially on every side and they don't need the city to increase their burden If the City wants to increase any costs, then put the items on the ballot for a vote and see what happens Anyone care to bet, will the issue pass or fail? Mercy, Mercy on us! Sierra Madre Watchman

City needs ‘attitude adjustment' Dear Editor: The story of the water situation in Sierra Madre is wider and deeper than the government wants to talk about or admit to for years of financial and physical mismanagement. To begin with, historically the City was able to build and put in place all of the basic infrastructure of the City, without incurring longterm debt. Considering that this was done throughout the depression years, it was nothing short of amazing. However, with the entry of the CRA in 1973, the element of the expansion and growth of the government began in earnest. The CRA provided the City with extra income from private property taxes, so they purchased new property and built a new Police and Fire Station, and the new City Hall, just for starters. These new facilities expanded the government by six or more times the square footage as the old City Hall. Keep in mind that the population has remained

the same, or less, than it was at that time. Further, all the money that the City receives comes from the tax paying people of the City. With the City's appetite for luxury, came reckless spending and the growth of the number of paid employees. Since the City Hall was completed in 1977, the City didn't stop spending, but rather made additional property purchases and built buildings, thereby accruing more long-term debt, while only making interest only payments, and/or deferring payments of any kind for years in advance. A person doesn't have to be a college graduate in order to know that you cannot spend more than you can afford, and if you can't afford it, you don't count your success on borrowed money. So, what has the City done? They borrowed more and more money until now they owe over $20M principal, plus $16M of accrued interest for a total of over $36M, the annual payments

amount to $1.3M per year for many years in the future and even higher when they have to pay on principal after 2020. In the meantime, all of the infrastructure of the City has fallen into disrepair, with their full knowledge and the only time they make any repairs is if they receive monies from outside sources. Now the State has cancelled out the CRA and the City was quick to transfer the debt to the "Successor Agency" in the amount of approximately $8.5M so that it no longer appears on the City's books. Who - has to pay for this debt? Answer: THE TAXPAYING PEOPLE OF SIERRA MADRE. In the late 1990's, the City set up the Sierra Madre Water Franchise, the income of which comes from the resident's water bills. Since then the City back charges all the expense items that come to mind, and when they run out of actual costs, they have "allocated costs" so as to have Please see page 5

With the increasing concern among patients about radiation exposure in diagnostic imaging, Methodist Hospital maintains ongoing efforts to provide exceptional patient care in a safe environment. Toward that end, the hospital has acquired the Toshiba Aquilion One CT system, which features advanced dose-reduction and image-processing software. This latest technology ensures an “image safely” environment, according to American College of Radiology guidelines for preventing unwarranted radiation exposure. The world’s most powerful X-ray imaging system, the Aquilion One provides high-resolution images quickly and with the lowest possible dose of radiation. This 320-slice CT scanner can produce 4D images of the body’s organs in less than a heartbeat – right here at Methodist Hospital, and physicians and staff are excited about the possibilities. “Our acquisition of this system reflects Methodist Hospital’s long-standing commitment to improving patient safety,” said President and CEO Dan Ausman. While using the absolutely lowest possible, safest dose of radiation, this new technology at the same time delivers the best image quality available. This provides for ideal patient care, including state-of-theart imaging and the dynamic volume CT scanner, able to acquire 16 cm of anatomy in a single rotation. This ability to acquire the entire organ with one volume scan opens the door to a whole new world of diagnostic possibilities. “This technology is

especially helpful for our cardio-vascular services in the healing of our patients,” Dennis Graham, director of diagnostic and imaging services and radiology, said. For cardiac exams, the entire heart can be captured in as little as one rotation for coronary analysis, or over a single heartbeat to include complete functional diagnosis. “And the exemplary patient care already provided by our advanced stroke center is now enhanced by our new CT system, the industry’s only whole-brain, 4D CT-DSA and perfusion in one exam,” Graham added. This 4D imagining means that physicians can catch pathology in images even faster and smaller than other 3D images. Featuring the fastest acute stroke work-up – 4.5 minutes – far ahead of the community standard of 18-20 minutes, the system also features the innovative Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction (AIDR) technology and can capture both anatomical and functional data at the same time. In addition, this system allows the correct patient protocol to be selected, based on the patient’s age, weight and exam type. The dose is displayed on the console before scanning so the operator can confirm and validate. If you are interested in your heart health and would like to find a physician, please call 888-388-2838 for a free referral. If you are currently experiencing cardiac problems or suspect you have cardiac symptoms, please contact your physician to see if you are a candidate for this new technology.

Letters to the Editor (Continued from page 3) Send your letters to tmiller@beaconmedianews.com the City Council believe that they must raise the water rates. I could go on, but I think the readers get the point. So, what needs to be done? 1). The City needs an "attitude adjustment", starting with the City Manager. 2). The City needs to reduce and do away with anything that is not essential, for example the Tree Commission, the Green Committee, finish the General Plan Update quickly. 3). Do away with the "water franchise", and put all the money into one account, so that ALL the bills can be paid. 4). Start repairing the infrastructure, in small steps and on a regular continuing basis, including not only all

the water delivery systems, and including sidewalks, sewers, trees, etc. 5). Ask the San Gabriel Water District to forgive the $1.5M loan. The income for this agency comes from the people's property taxes. 6). Work aggressively to prepay the long-term debts in order to save interest charges. This is, by no means, a complete list of expense items that the City can eliminate, if they have that mindset. Further, the City needs to reduce the number of paid employees. Look at the number of paid employees that were there when the City moved into their present buildings. For example, we had one City Manager, one

Public Works Manager, one part-time building inspector. The Fire Department was comprised of approximately 30 fire and EMT's, none of which were paid. Can we still call our Fire Department a "Volunteer Fire Department"? With 35 paid employees and 48 volunteer for a total of 83? Fourteen full-time employees and two part-time employees are in Administration. We won't talk about how much of the work is sub-let out in service contracts. This report is by no means complete, but this should provide some food for thought. Remember, the City is to "SERVE THE PEOPLE, NOT RULE OVER THEM"!!!! Sierra Madre Watchman

Dr. Richard Shuldiner helps macular degeneration sufferers with reading, driving, TV, and maintaining independence. Pete T., an 83 year-old retired engineer from Palm Springs thought that his driving days were over. “I could not read the street signs soon enough and it made me nervous.” Helen T. retired teacher, 74, from San Diego wanted to be able to read and write more easily. She wanted to see her grandchildren singing in the church choir. But she thought those days were over when she was diagnosed with macular degeneration. Neither of these patients knew that a low vision optometrist could help with some of those issues. “Bioptic telescopic glasses can be used to see signs further down the road,” said Dr. Richard Shuldiner, Low Vision Optometrist and Founder of the International Academy of Low Vision Specialists (IALVS).

Bioptic telescopic glasses were prescribed to read signs and see traffic lights farther away. As one patient put it, “These telescopic glasses not only allow me to read signs from a farther distance, but make driving much easier. I’ve also used them to watch television so I don’t have to sit so close; definitely worth the $2500 cost.

California home sales higher in July; price gains continue strong but tapering says A.A.R. California’s housing market bounced back after a slight dip in June to reach the highest level since May 2012, as home prices continued to post strong annual gains and home sales recorded the first annual increase in six months, the Arcadia Association of Realtors® reported. “The spike in interest rates in June prompted home buyers to delay escrow closings in hopes that rates would fall back,” said 2013 A.A.R. President Andy Bencosme. “As buyers recognized rates had stabilized, they moved forward to close escrow, which lifted July’s sales from both the previous month and year.” Closed escrow sales of existing, singlefamily detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 443,520 units in July, according to information collected by the California Association of Realtors® from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. Sales in July were up 7 percent from

a revised 414,670 in June and up 1.5 percent from a revised 436,870 in July 2012. The year-to-year sales increase was the first since December 2012, following six consecutive months of declines. The statewide sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2013 if sales maintained the July pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales. The statewide median price of an existing, singlefamily detached home inched up 1.2 percent from June’s median price of $428,620 to $433,760 in July. July’s price was 29.8 percent higher than the revised $334,220 recorded in July 2012, marking 17 straight months of annual price increases and the 13th consecutive month of double-digit annual gains. The median sales price is the point at which half of homes sold for more and half sold for less; it is influenced by the types of homes selling as well as a general change in values. “A constrained supply

of homes over the past year has fueled robust home price increases, particularly in the coastal regions,” said A.A.R. Executive Vice President Andrew Cooper. “Looking ahead, we should continue to see strong price growth but at a less accelerated pace than what we’ve experienced over the past year. Inventory levels are starting to build in some areas as price gains free up previously underwater homes and encourage homeowners reluctant to list because of the scarcity of homes to purchase.” Other key facts of C.A.R.’s July 2013 resale housing report include: • The available supply of existing, singlefamily detached homes for sale held steady in July at 2.9 months, unchanged from June’s Unsold Inventory Index. The index was 3.5 months in July 2012. The index indicates the number of months needed to sell the supply of homes on the market at the current sales rate. A six- to seven-month supply is considered typical in a normal market. • The median

number of days it took to sell a single-family home also held fairly steady at 27.8 days in July, compared to 27.7 days in June but was down from a revised 43.2 days in July 2012. • Mortgage rates ticked up in July, with the 30-year, fixed-mortgage interest rate averaging 4.37 percent, up from 4.07 percent in June 2013 and up from 3.55 percent in July 2012, according to Freddie Mac. Adjustablemortgage interest rates in July averaged 2.66 percent, up from 2.60 in June but down from 2.69 percent in July 2012. Representing local Realtors® in the San Gabriel Valley for 89 years, the ARCADIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (www. TheAAR.com) is one of the oldest trade organizations in CA. The AAR is dedicated to the advancement of professionalism in real estate and is an advocate for private property rights. A.A.R. is headquartered in Arcadia.

On Tuesday York united with the Fink family to bring greater awareness to this disease before attending a private screening of his critically acclaimed work, Cabaret, now celebrating its 40th anniversary. The Pasadena Sandwich Company has been a fixture in Pasadena since 1995 as a family owned and operated business. Steve Fink learned the deli business from his parents in the 1950’s before opening his own for the Pasadena lunch crowd so he could be home for family dinners. Steve was diagnosed with Amyloidosis in 2009, so late in the lifespan of the disease that his treatment options were limited and he succumbed to the disease in 2010. Steven Fink is survived by his four children: Meghan, Kaytee, Nicole and Jonathan, all whom came together to run the restaurant and establish the Stephen E. Fink Memorial Fund to bring greater awareness, research and treatment to Amyloidosis. They also created a sandwich called “The Big Steve” in memory of their dad and all proceeds are donated into

this fund. It was fate that brought York and Meghan Fink together to bring awareness to this cause. York was finally diagnosed in 2011, after being misdiagnosed, and last year underwent a successful stem cell transplant at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Amyloidosis is a disease that occurs when substances called amyloid proteins build up in the body’s organs. Amyloid is an abnormal protein usually produced by cells in your bone marrow that can be deposited in any tissue or organ.

Amyloidosis can affect different organs in different people, and there are different types of amyloid. Amyloidosis frequently affects the heart, kidneys, liver, spleen, nervous system and gastrointestinal tract, according to the Mayo Clinic. Amyloidosis is rare, and the exact cause is often unknown. Treatments are available to help you manage your symptoms of amyloidosis and limit the production of amyloid protein. During our interview, Please see page 20

Call off recall, resident says Dear Editor: Great article on the removal of James O'Brien and the response of the three School Board members: thanks for clearing the air on this subject. The crux of the whole matter boils down to the statement made by Ms.

Kinsler, Mr. Nguyen and Ms. Phillipe: "We were elected to be education leaders and it's vital that we model integrity and good sportsmanship for our students. We hold our students to the highest standards of honesty; why would we not hold our coaches to that same

standard?" At the end of the day, this is the life lesson Mr. O'Brien- and all school employees-must understand. Call off the recall, clearly our community won't be divided on this issue any longer. James McKellar, Arcadia

afford to buy this inaugural car show shirt to have a souvenir, announced mission car show Director Xavier Vargas. “Old Memories Car Club is operating the show for us because of their car show experience,” said Vargas. “We may have 200 cars here, it’s difficult to know since it’s the first show and many car show enthusiasts wait to show up early on the day of a show to register. We hope many spectators come to enjoy this familyoriented event.” People can register their car or truck for $20, motorcycle for $15, bike or pedal car for $10. There will be many categories for trophies. Move-in time and on-site registration will be 6 a.m. to

8:30 a.m. Blessing of the cars will be sometime during the middle time of the show. Persons age 17 and younger must be with their parent or adult guardian. San Gabriel Mission is the fourth oldest mission of 21 founded in California and is located at 427 S.

consistent standards and make ratings and inspection reports readily available to the public. In addition, these programs incentivize facilities to establish higher standards and better management practices to ensure ongoing compliance. The feasibility report, which will be developed by the County Office of Child Care, is due before the Board within 45 days.

The March on Washington: A commemoration the Musical Legacy of the Great March

The Allendale Branch Library presents the concluding program in its month-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the August 28, 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, a watershed in the struggle for civil rights in the United States. The March, which culminated with Dr. Martin Lu-

ther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial, is widely credited with helping to pass the Civil Rights Act (1964) and the Voting Rights Act (1965). On Saturday, August 31, at 2:00 p.m., the Allendale Branch Library will feature folk singer Ross Altman in a program

of folk music originally performed at the March on Washington by Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Len Chandler, Odetta, and Peter, Paul and Mary. The performance will also include a few songs that became prominent in the months leading up to the March from the 1963 Newport Folk Festival with

Pete Seeger and the Mississippi Freedom Singers, and in the aftermath (such as Richard Farina’s “Birmingham Sunday”), and will conclude with a 50th anniversary remembrance of the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. The program, which is open to the public and free of charge, will be held at 1130 S. Marengo Ave., Pasadena, CA 91106. Light refreshments will be served. A folk singer, guitarist, and music historian, Ross Altman continues in the tradition of Woody Guthrie “to comfort the afflicted, and afflict the comfortable.” He grew up on the folk music of Guthrie, Leadbelly, Pete Seeger, Burl Ives, Theodore Bikel, Josh White, Big Bill Broonzy, and later on Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, and Malvina Reynolds. In addition to his busy performance schedule, Altman writes a regular column for FolkWorks, Southern California’s free folk music magazine. His recording

and music publishing company, Grey Goose Music, is named after a children’s song by Leadbelly about an indestructible goose. Throughout the month of August, the Allendale Branch Library is featuring a display of photographs and books related to the March on Washington, in addition to a daily posting on the March on its Facebook page: https://

San Gabriel’s Fiesta celebrates 242 years

Temple Station deputies train at high school Commander Ralph J. Webb Commander of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department East Patrol Division met with Temple Station Deputies as they trained in Safe Tactics for various possible scenarios they may encounter during their duties on Monday. The training conducted on the campus of Temple City High School earned Deputies valuable new skills and refreshed old skills in managing various incidents. Training included a felony traffic stop, a pedestrian with concealed weapons, various domestic violence incidents, and dealing with mental health issues.

If you’re looking for something to do Labor Day weekend, the San Gabriel Mission has just the answer. The mission will be celebrating its 242nd birthday next weekend with a fiesta on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. With approximately 25,000 people expected to attend the fiesta, Xavier Vargas, executive director of the fiesta’s committee, said the party will have something for everyone. “We’re looking forward to it,” said Vargas, who added the annual festival began more than 80 years ago. “We’ll have great entertainment, great food for everyone. We’ll have entertainment for people of all ages. We’ll have a Top 40 band, mariachis, folkloricos. We’re going all the way out for the community.” Vargas added be sure to come, especially if you’re hungry. “We’re having everything from Italian, Mexican, Filipino, Vietnamese,” he said. “We’ll have a wide scope of American food. You got to have the hamburgers and the hot dogs. In addition, Vargas said the fiesta organizers are trying to get everyone out for the festival. “We’d like to invite more of the Asian community to come out with us and have a good time with us,” he said. “There’s always that language miscommunication, but we’re

City of Sierra Madre Continued from page 1

Ritchie alleges the city overbilled the community by approximately 92 acre feet. He said he multiplied that figure by the city’s Tier 1 water rate of $2.21. He added he arrived at the alleged overbilled amount by multiplying that by 435, the number of water units in one acre foot. “The city billed customers for more water than they produced,” Ritchie said. “I consider that fraud.” Ritchie the city should have fixed its water problems years ago and not wait until the current drought-like conditions. “If it’s true the city has no water reserves left, the city should have been discussing these issues 30 years ago,” he said. “Why did we wait until the city is bone dry?” City officials said while Ritchie’s math is correct, there is more to the billing process than what he is figuring. “What you have here is sort of a situation of apples and oranges,” City Manager Elaine Aguilar said. “You can’t take one apple and one orange and have two apples at the end of it. What (Ritchie

is figuring) is apples and oranges. They’re numbers and they’re water numbers, but you can’t compare them together and say, ‘this is the end result.’ They’re two different things that are being put together.” Aguilar added she and her staff have explained this to Ritchie, but that he just won’t listen. “We have spoken to Mr. Ritchie in the past to why this is not possible to do what he is trying to do,” Aguilar said. “It is impossible with our current technology,

to do what he is trying to do.” Karin Schnaider, director of finance for the city, said the water data is recorded in real time. However, she said the billing information is up to 30 to 40 days behind and is for just half of the city. “He just can’t compare them,” Schnaider said. “It’s just a timing issue. My data is always outdated. We always have to do some manual adjustments on our own.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com).

Fall Term Begins August 26 www.pasadena.edu/enrollnow

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

Why Classic?

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

Compliance through great patient care

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

Our CPAP Circle of Care® program

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

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

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

Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance

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

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

Skeptical?

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

Not currently screening for Sleep Apnea?

If you are not currently screening your patients for sleep apnea and would like to learn more about how we can help you, please call.

liance Program PAP Comp

The prescribing doctor receives documentation by eFax (or electronically via EMR system integration), starting with confirmation of receipt of the referral through every touch we have with the patient. This includes a copy of the 2-page compliance reports containing our Download on Demand® data and a copy of the notes made by our clinician during a call. Our proprietary systems automate the flow of documentation keeping referring doctors completely informed about their patients’ progress and ensure physicians have the documentation they need for follow-up consultations with their patients.

Assemblymember Holden’s bill to boost california agriculture approved in key senate committee Assemblymember Chris Holden’s (D-Pasadena) legislation to promote California’s agricultural economy was overwhelmingly approved today in the Senate Governmental Organization Committee. AB 199 requires California state agencies to purchase agricultural products from California companies if the price is equal to or less than the lowest outof-state company. AB 199 also encourages all public schools, school districts, and public colleges to purchase agricultural products within the state. “It just makes sense to put California-grown crops

first. This bill will add to California’s economy by creating more jobs and boosting the state’s bottom line,” said Assemblymember Holden. “In addition, the measure will introduce more Californians to the wide variety of agricultural products grown here.” “By encouraging government institutions to buy California-grown food, AB 199 benefits the institutions, their clients and the state’s family farmers and ranchers,” California Farm Bureau Federation President Paul Wenger said. “The bill sends a strong signal that Californians and their government agencies

should seek out nutritious, affordable foods grown here in the Golden State.” According to the Department of Food & Agriculture, California is the number one state in agricultural output with farms and ranches earning a record $43 billion last year. The moderate climate makes it ideal for growing many crops year-round including avocadoes, artichokes, broccoli, carrots, lemons, squash, cauliflower, potatoes, spinach, celery, cabbage and lettuce. AB 199 passed on a vote 7 to 0. It now moves to Senate Appropriations Committee.

On Thursday, August 1, we got on a bus with the Japanese students & set out on our two-day trip to Australia’s capital city, Canberra. The drive was about three hours long, so we kept ourselves entertained by telling stories, joking around and laughing with the Japanese exchange students. When we arrived, we were all so excited to see the famous sites. We first visited the Parliament House (equivalent to our White House) and saw how the Australian government worked. After the Parliament house, we went to the War Memorial where we learned about past wars Australians have participated in & saw the memorials of the lives lost in the wars. Also at the Memorial, we learned about a man named Bruce Brown who wanted the people of all countries to get along and we found that to be interesting because that is what the sister city association strives for as well. Mr. Brown was instrumental in organizing the Hawkesbury Sister City Association. To finish the night, we went up to Telstar Tower where we were able to see all of Canberra and although it was freezing, the view was totally worth being cold. The next morning we set out to visit the National Museum of Australia and Questacon (a science center). At both places, we were able to learn about some of Australia’s culture & how the country came to be. At Questacon, there were amazing interactive exhibits such as a “free fall slide” and “360 swing”,

which some of us went on. After our trip to Canberra, we returned to the Hawkesbury and got ready for our visit to St. Windsor Primary School. At the school, kids from kindergarten to year 6 sang and danced for us. We even joined in for a little bit of bush dancing! They were all extremely adorable and the staff was very friendly as well. We had morning tea with the staff where Tim Tams (delicious chocolate biscuits), vegemite sandwiches, and other Aussie goodies were served. Following our trip to the primary school, we went to Featherdale Wildlife Park, where we saw all of the different animals Australia has. We saw and were able to pet Australia’s finest koalas,

kangaroos, emus, dingoes, wombats, and wallaby’s. (That’s only a few of the animals we saw too!) We finished the day by buying plenty of souvenirs at the park’s shop. We are definitely looking forward to going back to our various schools, our trip to the Blue Mountains this Thursday, and learning how to bush dance Friday! We would just like to thank the Sister City Association, for allowing us to have this amazing opportunity to visit such a great country. We are really enjoying ourselves and are having a great time with our families and other exchange students. We cannot wait to make many more memories on our future trips!

El Monte council kicks off efforts to improve infrastructure at Valley Mall The El Monte City Council has approved the first phase of the Downtown Improvement Project, which will invest $485,000 in new handicap accessible ramps, sidewalks and landscaping between Santa Anita Avenue and Ramona Boulevard. The City Council at its Aug. 6 meeting unanimously approved the Valley Mall project, which sets in motion plans to rehabilitate stretches of pedestrian paths and walkways along Valley

Mall. Under Phase 1 of the project, up to 42 select intersections that do not have ADA ramps or have ramps that do not meet current standards will be upgraded with new ADA/ pedestrian curb ramps to improve accessibility. The total cost will be $485,000, which is comprised of $400,000 in Proposition 1B transportation funds and $85,000 in Community Development Block Grant

(CDBG) funds. These special funds will be used to eliminate a portion of the numerous repair requests from business owners and residents who patronize Valley Mall, a row of shops and restaurants in historic downtown. A master plan – which will evaluate the possibilities for outdoor eating areas, a farmer’s market and other programs at Valley Mall – will be presented at the Sept. 3 Council meeting.

The entire plot of “Ready for the Storm” is told through popular songs, with only sparse dialogue segueing from one melody to the next. More than 20 wellchosen tunes take us through the pre-nuptial jitters of Jenn and Bobby. Both are torn between their love for each other and their desire to pursue their ascending careers. Bobby, a singer, is enjoying his new-found fans’ adulations. Too much so, Jenn begins to think, as she accuses him of cheating on her. Yet she herself is loathe to give up her acting career. As the lights go on, Jenn is passionately, accusingly singing “The Winner Takes All,” her features contorted with pain. She’s not sure she can continue with impending marriage plans. Bobby implores her, even though he has his own doubts. Each has a confidante, an older person with dreams and fears of their own— Bobby: his friend David, and Jenn: her mom. And so the conflicted love stories unfold, as solos, duets and quartets offer “This is the Moment,” “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” “This is Your Song,” and many in between. Opera, yes—it’s where we expect most of a story

to be sung. A “jukebox musical?”…not so much. But that is just what “Ready for the Storm” does. The acting is in the singing. Good diction and projection are vital for the audience to follow the theme, and the actors provided them in abundance. Moreover, all portrayed high emotions, ranging from angst to endearing gestures. Kudos to the strong voices of understudies Amanda Newman (Jenn) and Zach Sandberg (Bobby) the night we attended. Debbi Kagy and Mike Callahan, respectively, also play these roles. We saw Lisa LaBella as Mom, and Randall Gray as David. Their understudies are Nadia Marina and Allen Corben. Gray is writer/director/

performer in “Ready for the Storm.” Some of the most poignant, sensitive expressions of emotions in “Storm” are his. Barb Woods is assistant director/stage manager for this production, and Alexander Nifong is technical director. Business manager is Janean Gray. Stages of Gray Theatre is located at 299 N. Altadena Dr., Pasadena. Well-lit side streets offer ample parking. “Ready for the Storm” will continue Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. through Sept. 14. Admission is $30; inquire about discounts for seniors, students and military personnel. For ticket reservations or more information, phone (626) 909461-7375.

So, what can these applicants expect from the testing process. “The first step is to make sure they have a good solid education,” Derderian said. “The top scorers of this move on to an interview panel. Then they move onto another interview panel with the chiefs. We’ll probably interview a couple hundred. Then they go through a psychological test and medical test and there’s a background check. They also need to show by that point they have taken a physical agility test. Then they have a 16-week firefighters’ academy. And there’s no guarantee that they will pass that.” She added the department is also looking for people who can adapt to a firefighters’ way of life. “It’s just a very com-

congratulations

petitive field and demanding job,” Derderian said. “But you spend more time in a fire station than you would at home.” With approximately 180 fire personnel in the city with eight fire stations, Derderian said the pay for a firefighter trainee is $4,000 per month, along with full benefits. She added Pasadena always gets many firefighter applicants. “We’re a very attractive city,” she said. “We have the Rose Bowl. We have UCLA football games. We have the Rose Parade and game. We tend to be a more attractive city than others as far as this is where someone wants to work.” Arcadia resident Ryan Cooper said he has applied with other departments, including Los Angeles, Brea and Fullerton. He added the

initial test was something he thought he could handle. “It wasn’t too bad,” the 22-year-old said of the threehour exam. “It was a little different than some of the others I’ve taken. It was pretty easy.” Mireya Bermudez, a 22-year-old from Santa Monica, was one of just 12 females who took the test. She agreed with Cooper that the test wasn’t the usual exam. “It was different than I expected,” said Bermudez, who is a paramedic out in San Bernardino County. “I thought it was going to have like standard math, English, mechanical aptitude questions like you see on most firefighter tests. But this one was more personality based.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

A new California Appellate case just published August 8, 2013, “Glaski v. Bank of America”, holds that a homeowner can challenge his lender’s right to foreclose by showing that the Deed of Trust never made it into the securitized trust until after the trust’s closing date. This is the case in most loans made in the last 12 years. If the bank foreclosed we should be able to get the homeowner money damages and/or the house back. Or a lawsuit could be filed and a court ruling obtained preventing the court from foreclosing. Recently enacted Sections 2924(a)(6) and 2924.19 of California Civil Code provide the same relief to homeowners. It is highly suggested that homeowners take this window of opportunity to get relief before the banks get Congress to close this door with national legislation. Contact us so we can help you.

Slurry sealing will not take place on weekends. Mail and trash services will be coordinated with the City’s service providers and will resume as usual.

Pasadena police officers 'administrative review' Continued from page 1

between April and October of 2012. An additional three complaints were received in late 2012-2013 and remained with the PPD for investigation. The combined complaints were primarily centered on three officers and were generated during court proceedings related to an aggravated assault trial. Chief Sanchez retained LASD as an independent, investigative body to expedite the investigations and to provide transparency for the process. Per LASD procedures, the administrative reviews and findings are the responsibility of the contracting agency. By August 19, 2013, LASD had completed seven of the eight investigations. Subsequent to LASD’s investigations, PPD completed the administrative reviews, which determined the following findings: Complainant alleged officer failed to submit discovery material before trial. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and trial judge concluded there was no Brady violation; however, the PPD Administrative Review determined that there was a delay in the submission, a violation of department policy. (Sustained) Complainant alleged officer tried to influence witness testimony. (Exonerated) Complainant alleged inappropriate use of an informant. (Exonerated) Complainant alleged traffic stop was harassment. (Unfounded) Complainant alleged unlawful arrest and failure to act by officer. (Not sustained) Complainant alleged officer interfered with a witness statement. (Unfounded) Complainant alleged officer failed to provide a copy of a search warrant and that the issuance of the search warrant was harassment. (Exonerated)

Complainant alleged threats by an officer. (Investigation by LASD ongoing) The following is a summary of the three complaints investigated by the PPD: Complainant alleged submission of misleading police report. (Unfounded) Complainant alleged officer inappropriately recorded jailhouse telephone conversation. (Exonerated) Complainant alleged officer made inappropriate comment. (Sustained) A “Sustained” finding occurs when there is sufficient evidence to establish that the act occurred and it constituted a policy violation. A “Not Sustained” disposition is utilized when the investigation discloses there is insufficient evidence to sustain the complaint or fully exonerate the employee. An “Unfounded” disposition means the allegation did not occur and an “Exonerated” finding means the alleged act(s) occurred, but the act was justified, lawful, and proper. “Brady” refers to the disclosure process of material evidence deemed exculpatory or impeaching toward the guilt, innocence, or punishment of the defendant. “The Pasadena Police Department takes seriously any allegations of misconduct by its employees. If police personnel are found to have committed violations, they will be held accountable. In a majority of the complaints, the investigations revealed that elements of the allegations were exaggerated or misrepresented in an attempt to tarnish the Pasadena Police Department’s professional reputation. These complaints were a mis-direction from the truth - that hardworking and honorable detectives brought to prosecution dangerous criminals who had either taken life or significantly injured members of our

community. The suspects’ disregard for the law and for life has left a profound impact on the victims and their families. As law enforcement professionals, the Pasadena Police Department will continue to investigate complaints in a timely manner and maintain high standards in contemporary policing,” said Chief of Police Phillip Sanchez. Vice Mayor Jacque Robinson, Chair City Council Public Safety Committee said: “As the Chair of the Pasadena Public Safety Committee, I would like to thank Chief Sanchez and his administrative team for pursuing the validity and truth of the 2012/2013 allegations of officer misconduct. The comprehensive reviews, including both internal and external investigations, were appropriate given the series of complaints. “The Public Safety Committee and the City Council will continue to hold our Chief and Pasadena Police employees to the highest standards of professionalism. Any sustained infraction of employee misconduct violates the public’s trust. As such, community members are encouraged to report allegations of misconduct to Chief Sanchez, members of the Public Safety Committee or other appropriate agencies for review. The Police Department has demonstrated that citizen complaints will be investigated in a timely manner and that employees will be held accountable. If an investigation determines that the alleged conduct was proper, within policy and the law; the employee should be deemed exonerated. The Public Safety Committee will continue to routinely provide oversight regarding the Police Department’s personnel investigations and use of force incidents to ensure we remain current and fair in our police practices.”

Stanley Kramer Centennial Continued from page 9

August – December 2013. In addition to the salute to Stanley Kramer in Los Angeles at the UCLA Film & Television Archive, other Stanley Kramer Centennial Celebrations will be held in other major cities as well. Please visit the new website, www. stanleykramer100.com for information concerning other upcoming Stanley Kramer Centennial Activities and events. During the Opening Night, Sidney Poitier presented Karen Sharpe Kramer with a tribute to his late friend and colleague, director Stanley Kramer. Karen Sharpe Kramer read Sidney Poitier’s comments to the audience, as follows: "I welcome this opportunity to honor the life of a great friend and filmmaker. It was a profound experience for me to have had the privilege to work under the direction of such a remarkable talent. It allowed me the great opportunity to work with Spencer Tracey, Katharine Hepburn, Tony Curtis and many, many others. It was a fabulous experience that galvanized, for me, a career I had never dreamed possible. ‘The Defiant Ones,’ ‘Pressure Point,’ ‘Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner,’ were films that pushed the limits of the status quo and changed the

game of the film industry, not to mention, the world, considerably. “Stanley Kramer was quite a remarkable human being. He was an unusual person in so many ways, especially in regard to the motion picture industry. In the many years I knew him, I will never forget the extraordinary gifts that personified the essence of Stanley Kramer – film director, film producer, visionary, family man, friend – all of which added up to his life having become a remarkable example of what the American film industry has made of itself – a competitor worldwide. “There were experiences that had a profound impact on me as a young actor in a film industry that was not inclined – in those days – to hire or embrace young African-American actors. It

took a certain kind of person to have had the insight and courage to bring to the forefront social issues that were difficult to address, and commonly ignored, by the general public. “Many of Stanley’s films did just that – and although he was not the only one – he was one of the first among a considerable body of extraordinary filmmakers much like himself – like Joe Mankiewicz – like George Stevens – like James Clavell – all of whom were of the Stanley Kramer texture. “I was fortunate enough to have been chosen by each of them and I stand here in true appreciation of the Stanley Kramer I knew. His craftsmanship continues to raise the bar higher and higher yet – to levels that will forever enrich the future and art of filmmaking and filmmakers worldwide.” – Sidney Poitier

Michael York Continued from page 9

York apologized for wearing dark glasses but said that his eyes were still recovering from the stem cell surgery. He then produced some images his wife Pat took for the Mayo clinic… puffy and swollen, his eyes looked like those of a “prizefighter,” he quipped. Along with his wife and Pat of 45 years, York told a small group of reporters “ Healing is a marvelous mystery…” “Pat has done a lot of research about Amyloidosis and stem cell replacement therapy,” he added. “I even sought out a healer in Brazil,” York said. “ We wore white and everything…I sought out this chap called John of God” York said in his eloquent English accent. Referring to a remote corner of Brazil, the man known as John of God is apparently changing people's lives in astonishing ways and York believes that this

man, may have played a noteworthy role in his recovery process. For 52 years and counting, miracles of this sort have been happening around this unassuming Brazilian, who takes no credit for them. "I have never healed anybody. It is God who heals," he says. York said that John of God was recently featured on “Oprah”… “so now everyone knows of him,” he said with a broad smile. Lending his celebrity to the Finks’ extraordinary fundraising efforts to find a cure, York hugged Meghan and Kaytee Fink repeatedly while commending them on their strength and courage after their father passed away in 2010 from Amyloidosis. The two sisters gave York a hat bearing the Pasadena Sandwich Company logo which he immediately donned for photographers declaring “ I’m very proud

to wear it…thank you Meghan and Kaytee.” York attributes his strong recovery to his positive attitude, his remarkable wife Pat and the doctor at the Mayo Clinic, who performed the surgery last July using York’s own stem cells. After feeling well again, just over a year since surgery York recently appeared on stage in London singing and dancing in ‘My Fair Lady.’ York who has had leading roles in everything from Cabaret to Logan’s Run to Austin Powers has more than 50 movie credits to his name, several Emmy nominations for his television work and numerous Broadway performances. Additionally, he has narrated numerous documentaries and extensive radio work. York’s advice to anyone suffering from this rare disease, or any other for that matter, “ Never give up.”

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 POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 916-939-0772 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site www.nationwideposting.com for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case 20130169803246.

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.
