Dorothy's Place

Letter to the Editor

The B-I-G-GGG pickup truck

By Dorothy Denne There are obviously a lot of very good drivers on the streets or we would have annihilated our society by now. There are obviously also a lot of very thoughtful, polite drivers or I would spend the rest of my life sitting in my driveway waiting for a chance to pull out. However, as I have observed and commented on many times, there are also a lot of very poor drivers on the streets. Many are rude, thoughtless, self-centered, and frequently pre-occupied. I've met some of all of the above. Judging from the e-mails, phone calls, and in-person comments I receive when I write about any of the above, you meet

them too. The other day I approached a very busy intersection just as the green arrow for my left turn went off. Wanting to obey the law, and not wanting to get killed, I stopped. Someone was honking at someone. I began looking around to see who it was and why. With all the road rage that is taking place these days, I didn't want to get caught in the middle of somebody else's fracas. I saw nothing unusual ahead, nothing to the left, and nothing to the right. I glanced in my rear-view mirror. I saw this rather irate looking young woman in a B-I-G-GGG pickup truck. She was vigorously motioning for me to go. Trying to avoid direct eye contact, I shifted my glance forward again. There, hanging beside the stoplight, was a sign that I swear was not there the last time I went through that

intersection. It said Left Turn Yield On Green. I simply had seen the arrow, but not the sign, when I had entered the left-turn lane. Now it was too late because there was on-coming traffic. The west-bound went west and the east-bound went east, the north-bound went north and the southbound went south. I was forced to sit through it all in front of a very pissed-off young woman in a very B-IG-GGG pickup truck. I sneaked a peek in the mirror. She gave me a one finger salute. That was not nice but I knew exactly what she was thinking about that old woman in front of her. Me? I was thinking, "If she doesn't kill me, I'll get a column out of this." She didn't so I'll write about it. But, I'll be smart. I won't name the day or the intersection, just in case she reads Dorothy's Place when she's not driving that B-I-GGGG pickup truck.

Sierra Madre Residents still question city hall.., IT?

Dear Editor: CAN YOU BELIEVE

The more that the Sierra Madre management team explains their point of view, the more we wonder how they handle their personal affairs. The City Manager, the Finance Director and the Public Works Director seem to think alike and play the same recording. They think that it is alright to borrow money and pay interest on the loan for 20 or 30 years. They also think that the more you borrow, the better interest rate you get. That's smart business, so they say, even though they know that the people pay two or more times the original amount. They also think, the more you borrow, the better fi-

nancial shape that you are in. It 40 The Public Works Director knows that a person has to keep his auto in good repair, but all three of them think that it is alright to postpone repairs to the City's equipment. They probably also think they are doing things right, because they refer to personal and business and imply that those entity's operate the same way. Without even taking a pole of the households and businesses in town, is it quite certain that not over one percent operate their financial affairs like the City. It is also doubtful, without checking, that the majority of the City Council handle their personal, physical, and financial affairs the same way that the

City does. You don't get out of the "financial" hole by digging another hole. You get out of the hole by filling the hole. You also maintain anything physical by making the needed repair promptly, as they occur, and this saves many dollars over what the costs are, if you postpone the repairs and let them get worse. Where did they learn how to manage someone else's money? Can they get smart and change their ways? Try looking at how San Bernardino, Stockton, or Detroit were forced into bankruptcy and try to do the opposite. Learn from their mistakes, and put all issues on the ballot for their approval, not like you did before. Sierra Madre Watchman (name withheld by request)

Healthy Home Environments in Sierra Madre Dear Editor: Like many people, after a long day at work, I look forward to coming home and relaxing with a nice dinner or my favorite television show. As a Sierra Madre resident, I enjoy the cool mountain air and I like to open my windows when I get home while I get dinner ready and start to unwind from the day’s events. Unfortunately, most days as soon as I settle at the table or couch, food in hand and get ready to turn on my favorite show, a smell wafts into my apartment unit from the outside. As I pause, fork in hand, the smell becomes more prominent and it can be easily identified as tobacco smoke. As an apartment resident, any smoking inside the units, on the balconies, etc. wafts into the unit and overpowers the fresh air I was previously enjoying. Can you imagine smelling tobacco smoke and being exposed to the harmful effects in your home on a daily basis? If you have

never experienced drifting secondhand smoke as an apartment or condominium resident, I can tell you that not only is it an unpleasant experience, but it can negatively affect your health as well. The dangerous effects of secondhand smoke have been researched time and time again and the results are irrefutable: “secondhand smoke is harmful to your health!” As a member of the Clean Air for Residential Environments (CARE) Sierra Madre coalition, which is composed of Sierra Madre residents and health advocates, I am interested in safeguards to protect residents from secondhand smoke exposure at home. Despite public settings where an individual can often walk away from the smoke, in a home environment, Sierra Madre residents have no option when it comes to protecting themselves from drifting secondhand smoke except to move, which is not an easy option for many people. As a Sierra Madre

resident and member of the CARE coalition, we have worked now for over 3 years for a smoke-free multi-unit housing ordinance in the City of Sierra Madre which will help protect the health of all residents. This ordinance is not about infringing on people’s rights, but rather it’s about protecting the health of the community members including children and older adults. No one is denying people the “right” to smoke, we are just asking for an ordinance that would ask smokers to refrain from smoking in common areas, balconies and inside units, where the smoke can easily drift through the vents being inhaled by all other neighbors. If you are affected by secondhand smoke as a tenant and/or owner in a multiunit housing and need help with specific details, please feel free to contact our coalition at caresierramadre@ gmail.com for more information.

says Sharon Stewart, Director of Scheduling and Events for the Music Center of Los Angeles County. “We look forward to working with them in future summers, and to another successful summer classical music series.” Pasadena Entertainment has served as the production and marketing firm for the California Philharmonic and its concert series for the past four years. “We value the professionalism of Pasadena Entertainment as part of our marketing and production team,” said Pete Siberell, Director of Special Projects for Los Angeles Turf Club. “Teaming up with California Philharmonic has been a great opportunity to develop Santa Anita Race Track as a premier concert venue.” And the close to 20,000 people who attended California Philharmonic’s 2013 Festival on the Green at Santa Anita Race Track couldn’t agree more. Equally enthusiastic, are the

10,000 fans who filled last season’s sold out concerts at Walt Disney Concert Hall and showed their appreciation of the revered orchestra with an unprecedented five standing ovations during the final performance of the season. The transition of California Philharmonic to Pasadena Entertainment from the non-profit CalPhil Foundation began earlier this year. CalPhil Foundation (not the California Philharmonic), will phase out through bankruptcy. Under its new organization, all past and present professional obligations with California Philharmonic musicians have been met. A new collective bargaining agreement has been set and California Philharmonic is moving forward with the Musicians Union and its members in good standing. "AFM, Local 47 is pleased to announce that all back wages owed to California Philharmonic musicians for services ren-

dered have been paid,” comments John Acosta, Vice President of Local 47. “Pasadena Entertainment has stepped up to take on the proud tradition of California Philharmonic, providing summer concerts in Los Angeles County. Local 47 and its new partner Pasadena Entertainment look forward to a long and successful relationship!" The musicians echo the excitement for the future of California Philharmonic along with the Union, the orchestra’s ever-growing loyal fan base and the venues. “Maestro Vener and California Philharmonic create the kind of energy that John Mauceri, Arthur Fiedler and Leonard Bernstein brought to the concert stage,” says Dennis Karmazyn, California Philharmonic’s principal cellist. “California Philharmonic takes the audience on a musical journey.” Subscriptions and tickets are available for the 2014 summer season.

Monrovia man arrested in assault rifle threats at schools and hospitals in San Gabriel Valley Continued from page 1

District Attorney’s Office by Monrovia Police Department detectives for consideration of criminal filing. At this point his bail is set at $250,000.00 and his next court date is Thursday, September 19, 2013 Monrovia Police Chief Jim Hunt characterized the work to find and arrest the suspect as “a very successful collaborative effort.” He explained that as events unfolded over the last 10

days “an ad hoc Task Force was formed of all the agencies involved and the FBI.” Since threats had been received affecting Monrovia, but also Arcadia, Covina, West Covina, Glendora, and Duarte (which is patrolled by the Sheriff’s Department), these were the agencies involved. However West Covina, Glendora did not participate in task force which resulted in arrest. Hunt named Gerardo

Cortez, 26, of Monrovia as the suspect. Cortez was arrested by Monrovia Police Officers at his home on Tuesday at approximately 4 P.M. He was booked at the Monrovia Police Station and is being held there pending his arraignment today. He was arrested on five felony counts of making a criminal threat, 422 P.C., and five misdemeanor counts of making a False Report of an Emergency, 148.3(a) P.C.

Hunt said that even though Cortez had not followed through with any of his threats. “In light of current events (the Washington Naval Yard murders), such threats must be taken seriously.” The Chief also pointed to the suspect’s Face Book page calling it “disturbing.” Hunt said “He posted photos of himself shooting a gun and of police responding to various situations.” Hunt also said he wished to thank all the agencies involved for the collaborative effort made to apprehend the suspect. “It was a real group effort” he said. Arcadia Police Chief Robert Guthrie concurred with Chief Hunt and said it truly was a remarkable joint effort in which all agencies worked very well together well together to avert these “terrorist threats…” “It’s most important we all work together with these threats,” Guthrie said. “Our number one priority is safety and with the use of advanced technology, anti-terrorism information combined with contemporary investigations the task force with all agencies who are working on this investigation helped make the arrest.” Guthrie said his officers and all connected school officials are working hard to help deal with this issue and any aftermath and will have more visibility in the schools. The massive five-agency effort was formed to put a stop to these threats and included investigators from the police departments of the cities of Arcadia, Covina and Monrovia, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s investigators from Temple Station, Major Crimes Bureau, and the Joint Terrorism Task Force.

Gerardo Cortez was arrested as he left his Monrovia house Tuesday afternoon. –Facebook Photo

Monrovia Police Dept. has confirmed that the individual shown on Cortez’ Facebook page in a police uniform is not the suspect. This newspaper has received unconfirmed reports may be a family member of the suspect Using advanced technology and investigative techniques, key information was gathered by the team, and the suspect was arrested as he left his Monrovia home about 4:00pm Tuesday, September 17, 2013. Investigators are continuing the investigation, which included serving a search warrant at his Monrovia home. All policing agencies involved in this investigation took this very seriously. The nature of these criminal threats brought tremendous fear to students, faculty, parents, patients, and the community. It also drew a significant amount of policing resources away from other legitimate purposes. Incidents such as these will continue to be handled in a serious manner. The incidents that led to this arrest was the caller said he had an AK-47 and threatened to shoot people at the following locations: Covina: A call was

made referencing “Citrus Medical Center:” (there is no hospital by that exact name) On Monday, Sept. 9, the threatening call was made to the Covina Police Department. Covina Police Dept. officers searched Intercommunity Hospital in Covina. West Covina Police Dept. officers searched Queen of the Valley of the Valley Hospital and East San Gabriel Valley Hospice in the City of West Covina. Glendora Police Dept. officers searched Foothill Presbyterian Hospital in the Glendora. Monrovia: A call was made referencing Sante Fe Middle School: On Monday, Sept. 9. the threatening call was made to the Monrovia Police Department. Anyone with information regarding these incidents that may be of assistance to investigators please contact the Monrovia Police Department at 626256-8041. In an interesting development, Beacon Media has learned that the suspect also spent some jail time for similar threats in Pasadena but only served 7 months of a 16 month conviction last October.

Hope International Church of Arcadia welcomes new pastor into the community: installation service on September 29 Rev. Sam Lee is the new Co-Pastor for English Language Ministry at Hope International Church at 1741 S. Baldwin Avenue in Arcadia. Rev. Lee—who likes to be called “Sam”—has returned to California from Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he was a Resident Pastor at Church of the Servant. He also served at urban and suburban churches in Los Angeles and Detroit, Michigan, where he focused on building authentic relationships, nurturing a new generation of leaders with multi-cultural openness and a vision for restored, revitalized communities. “My family and I are so excited to join fellow servants at Hope, who are uniquely living out the vision of ‘unity in community’ in a real and genuine sense of the word in spite of and beyond color and cultural differences,” said Sam. “I can’t wait to see our awesome vision in action by serving greater San Gabriel Valley community with God’s radically refreshing love.” Although he was born in South Korea, Sam considers himself a native Southern Californian because he first moved to the area when he was 10. Sam earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Southern California. He received a Master’s of Divinity from Calvin Theo-

logical Seminary in Grand Rapids. “Sam is a 1.5 generation Korean-American pastor with multi-perspectives. He naturally relates to first- and later-generation immigrants as well as American-born citizens because he has been living in diverse contexts that that gave him cultural sensitivities and insights. It’s his story!” said Rev. Sid Sybenga, Sam’s fellow Co-Pastor for English Language Ministry at Hope. Sybenga added, “I believe that God will use Sam’s many gifts, life stories and experiences in various outreach ministries to

powerfully communicate how and why God’s big story relates to different persons’ own stories.” Sam is married to Jihye, an exceptional pianist. The couple has two children, Jacob, 10, and Janice, 8. Sam’s hobby include fishing, watching ESPN, lunch-ing, and buying a cup of coffee or tea for a stranger who wants to talk about life. Sam will be officially installed at Hope International Church on Sunday, September 29, at 10 a.m. God Questions? Or, would like to talk about life over ‘Cup of Coffee’?: gopastorsam@gmail.com

Economy looking ‘rosier’ according to Cal Edison Fed Credit Union The San Gabriel Valley economy is definitely on the move and is growing as the end of the third quarter nears, a local finance expert said on Monday. George Poitou, chief operating officer with Southern California Edison Federal Credit Union, said the local economy – as well as the state and national economy – is looking rosier than it has in some time. “We are doing a lot better than we have been,” Poitou said. “It’s not bad. It’s actually really good. There were a lot of cash investors, who were flipping properties. That seems to be stabilizing. People now who are buying homes for the long haul are back in the market. The inventory is fairly low. But the market is stabilizing.” Poitou added other economic indicators are also doing well. “It’s looking much better than it has been,” he said. “Unemployment is down to single digits. It’s a service economy, but we’re definitely seeing the light at

By SHEL SEGAL the end of the tunnel.” In fact, a California Credit Union League report shows lending at the state’s credit unions increased by 1.3 percent in the second quarter, making it the fastest second-quarter loan balance increase since the beginning of the recession in 2007. Automobile financing led the way with a 7.8 percent first-half jump in new vehicle loans, and a 6.3 percent increase in used vehicle loans. Unsecured personal loans also grew relatively quickly, jumping by 1.8 percent in the first half, the report said. “It's clear the reports of California’s heating up weren’t a flash in the pan,” said Dwight Johnston, chief economist for the league. “This improved economic outlook is building consumer confidence with near-record increases in new loan applications for big-ticket items ranging from homes to cars.” Helping drive demand for new vehicles, many Californians have returned

to work in 2013. The state’s unemployment rate dipped to 8.5 percent at the end of the year, which while still elevated, represents a decline of nearly a percentage point in the quarter and of 1.3 percentage points since the start of the year, the report said. Also, California home prices increased by 5 percent in the first quarter and by 17 percent in the year ending in March, the most recent data available for the Federal Housing Finance Agency purchaseonly index, the report said. Meanwhile, statewide personal bankruptcy filings declined by 26 percent in the first half compared to year-ago levels according to the Administrative Office of U.S. District Courts. And California credit union borrower-bankruptcy filings declined even faster – by nearly 31 percent – in the same time period, the report said.

State senate sends 710 freeway properties bill to governor The state Senate approved a bill expediting the sale of state-owned houses no longer needed for a proposed State Highway Route 710 extension in Los Angeles, Alhambra, South Pasadena, and Pasadena, Sen. Carol Liu announced Tuesday (September 10, 2013). Liu authored SB 416, which streamlines the California Department of Transportation process for selling as surplus property houses that were purchased more than 50 years ago for the extension route. The Senate passed the bill on a 38-0 vote and sent it to Governor Jerry Brown, who has 30 days to sign or veto the legislation. “This bill gets Caltrans out of the real estate management business, generate revenues for local transportation projects, and returns these properties to our local tax rolls,” said Liu, D-La Canada Flintridge. Assemblymembers Mike Gatto, D-Burbank and Chris Holden, D-Pasadena, coauthored the legislation. “I want to thank Mr. Gatto

and Mr. Holden for their support of this important measure,” Liu said. SB 416 passed the Assembly 77-0 last week. The 4.5-mile, uncompleted portion of Route 710 transects neighborhoods and communities. Caltrans owns over 500 properties within the originally proposed surface route corridor. About 400 homes are occupied by tenants for whom Caltrans serves as landlord, but many houses remain vacant and in disrepair. The originally proposed North 710 surface route segment has been eliminated from further consideration by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which is preparing the Environmental Impact Report and Statement on Caltrans’ behalf. SB 416 will codify this determination, clearing the way for properties to be declared excess and sold. Current law, known as the Roberti Bill, establishes terms and conditions for the sale of properties to current

tenants and affordable housing entities before offering them for sale at fair market value to the public. Single-family residences must first be offered at an affordable price to present occupants who qualify as low income. SB 416 enables those properties to be sold “as is” upon agreement with the buyer thus, relieving Caltrans of the need to make costly repairs prior to a sale. The bill further revises the definition of "fair market value" to reflect the "as is" condition of the property, taking into account any needed repairs, and gives current tenants priority to purchase residential and non-residential properties at fair market value. Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) issued the following statement after SB 416 authored by Senator Carol Liu and co-authored by Assemblymember Holden RE DU cleared the Assembly on CE DP RIC Friday. E Holden says bill is “critical first-step to restoring peace and security to neighborhoods”

didn’t quit.” He added Keppel brought its own challenges. “It’s tough when you start new procedures,” he said. “It’s tough for any coach, especially when the program has been struggling for three decades. But the players have put in the work this year and they’re having fun.” Beating Ganesha High in the opener and almost defeating Workman High in Week Two, Sepulveda said he hopes the tide is turning. “This year we’re seeing the reward that we’re already a lot more competitive than we were last year,” he said. So, what do the Aztecs need to do to finally turn it around once and for all? “We need to eliminate mistakes,” Sepulveda said. “Against Ganesha, we didn’t make any offensive turnovers and that was a very close game. Against Workman, we made some mistakes. Even though we had the lead with five minutes remaining,

SUNSET AVE.

The Mark Keppel High won a football in its season opener. That usually isn’t huge news, except for the fact that the team has struggled since the 1980s and with second-year coach Aaron Sepulveda at the helm the future looks bright for the Aztecs. Sepulveda came to the team after the school year was finished more than a year ago, meaning he missed out on valuable time to get his team ready for the 2012 campaign. But that didn’t stop him from getting a competitive squad out there on the field. “We struggled,” Sepulveda said. “Last year was a period in which we were building a foundation. When I arrived in late June, we had to get things situated by establishing a weight training program, a conditioning program. We were trying to become acquainted with the players, become familiar with the culture of the school. We definitely struggled, but the players had good spirit, they

we played well. That’s two games that ended in onside kicks. That tells you they were competitive games.” One big set-back for the Aztecs is learning that talented senior quarterback Marcus Valenzuela, who recently transferred to Keppel from San Gabriel High, will need to sit out an additional 30 days before he can play, according to a ruling made by CIF Southern Section. Sepulveda said he disagrees with the ruling. “We feel he had a legitimate right to play under the hardship clause that CIF has,” Sepulveda said of Valenzuela. “He fit all the criteria.” But all and all, the team is looking better, Sepulveda said. “We’ve definitely improved dramatically defending against the pass,” Sepulveda said. “I think we’ve shown that. We’re struggling with numbers. Most of our players are twoway players. They have a lot of fight in them and they’ve been playing hard from kickoff to the final whistle. So, the spring activity helped us. It allowed us to get further along with the implementation of certain schemes.” Sepulveda also credited his assistant coaches – defensive coordinator Kymm Snowden and offensive line coach Niko Gonzalez – with helping to turn the team around.

in 2008. More information on Measure TT can be found at www.measurett.org. The project was designed by PBWS Architects and is being constructed by Sinanian Development. Actual construction began July 1, 2013 and is scheduled to last 20 months.

Road construction work on Fair Oaks Ave. to be completed - Oct. 18 Residents and businesses are advised that the final road paving for trench work on a water mainline installation under Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena is estimated to be completed by Oct. 18, 2013. Paving and other road work will occur from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, beginning Sept. 16. The City urges motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians to use caution while traveling through the area.

SEPTEMBER 19, 2013 - SEPTEMBER 25, 2013 | 9

Planned Parenthood celebrates 80 years in San Gabriel Valley Over the past eighty years Pasadena has witnessed much change, but one thing that has remained constant is the compassionate, nonjudgmental care provided to this community by Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley. More than 300 community members gathered Thursday night in Pasadena to celebrate the 80th Anniversary of the non-profit health care provider, which is a vital part of the local communities. Board Chair Lauren Frankel noted that “While Planned Parenthood is a nationally networked organization, our local affiliate has always been an essential provider in Pasadena and over the last decade has expanded to become an integral partner throughout the San Gabriel Valley.” Party-goers eager to support the essential services and education that the organization provides, were inspired by Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards in her first ever keynote address in Pasadena. As a nationally recognized commentator on women’s rights, reproductive health, and sex education, Ms. Richards, the daughter of former Governor Ann Richards, shared her reflections about Planned Parenthood and current events happening over the past year.

Do you change your car’s motor oil? Did you know that used motor oil and oil filters are recyclable? Used oil can be re-refined or processed into new motor oil. Currently only 46% of used motor oil is being recycled, which means 20 million gallons may be illegally entering California’s waterways via stormwater systems, posing a great risk to the environment. One gallon of used oil can contaminate a million gallons of drinking water; polluting our waterways and threatening fish and aquatic life. Prevent pollution; recycle used motor oil and filters! Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards -Courtesy Photo

Guests were motivated by a short film highlighting the story of Planned Parenthood in Pasadena and the critical role that it continues to play. The film included reflections by Sheri Bonner, President/ CEO of Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley, and the Rev. Dr. George Regas, former Rector of All Saints Church and PPPSGV Advisory Committee member. Bonner indicated that “the fact that Planned Parenthood has been here for 80 years through all of the ups and downs - it speaks to the power of our mission, that we provide life changing services and education to women, men and young people.” She went on to share, “the community comes to us with questions and we provide them with a tool kit of how to carry out their dreams.” Planned Parenthood

supporters are passionate about investing in the work that continues to empower this community. Alongside Patron Chair Joan T. Caillouette and Co-Chairs Brooke Larsen Garlock, Kristin Maschka and Jacqueline Samols, many dynamic Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley leaders contributed to the event as members of the 80th Anniversary Celebration Patron Committee, including Erin Rothenberg Baker, Martyn Belmont, Elizabeth Besch, Marilyn Brumder, Alice and Joe Coulombe, Susan Crawford, Sally Graves De Witt, Lauren Frankel, Priscilla and Nelson Gibbs, Kathy Gillespie, Patricia Glazier, BJ Kirwan Hanna, Karen Hillenburg, Jeanette Park, Sarah Rothenberg, Juliana Serrano, Marie Stein, Jennifer Thibault, Nancy Waite and Katie Rothenberg Wei.

The result is that large quantities of these homes have been bought up by investors, taking them off the market in bulk. Generally speaking, the real estate market needs about six months of inventory in order to keep up with normal supply and demand. Currently there is approximately five months of inventory nationally.

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.

Tournament of Roses Royal Court tryouts Continued from page 1

cameras captured not only young women but some men too, hoping to be the first male selected to be on the Royal Court. As custom has it, men are not designated but several brave souls, many from Arcadia High school try out each year notwithstanding. An unseasonably warm Saturday morning found hundreds of teens lined up outside Tournament House in their best manners hoping to make a good enough impression in the few seconds they had in front of a select committee of Tournament officials. Trying to cool off by a giant fan before their first cross examination, young women wished each other good luck. Seven young women will be named to the Royal Court on October 7, 2013, and one of them will be named the Rose Queen on October 24, 2013. The 2014 Rose Queen

Wildcats running back Kurt Scoby rushed for 286 yards and five touchdowns on just 12 carries as visiting Monrovia High stomped on Arcadia High, 49-7, on Friday night in a nonleague game. Scoby scored on runs of 94, 50, 45, 21 and 20 yards as the Apaches defense had no idea how to contain the senior rusher. Monrovia coach Ryan Maddox said Scoby has a bright future ahead of him. “He’s got a couple of offers at the next level,” Maddox said. “This won’t be the end of football for him. He’s a very good young man. He works hard. It’s just the beginning for him.” He added his team played well and on all cylinders. “Our offensive line did a great job,” Maddox said. “Defensively, we were lights out. But we did a good job running the football tonight. You got to give credit to the offensive line up front. Then (Scoby) found the holes and accelerated.” Arcadia coach Andrew Policky said he knew his team would have its hands full with the Wildcats. “We just got a lot of work to do,” Policky said. “(Monrovia was) a good football team. We knew that coming in. There’s a lot of things we can improve on. We’ll come back and look at the tape, try to clean it up and get better. We came out and made a lot of mistakes early. But we’ll be alright.” While Scoby led the offense, the defense also

played exceptionally well, limiting the Apaches to just 21 yards rushing in the first half. Monrovia benefitted from excellent field position – especially in the first half – and began several drives in Arcadia territory. The Wildcats began the game on the Apache 38-yard line and scored five plays later on a 20-yard run by Scoby. Scoby would then find the end zone two more times in the first quarter alone. Arcadia got its lone touchdown midway through the second quarter and cut

the Monrovia lead, 21-7, when quarterback Joey Harmon hit running back Niko Cantos with a 60-yard touchdown pass. Following another Scoby touchdown, Monrovia made it, 35-7, just before the half when running back Kameron Johnson scored from three yards to cap a four-play, 71-yard drive that was highlighted by a 50-yard run by Scoby.

El Monte Airport open house this Sunday features vintage planes Continued from page 1

Gloria Ing to speak to professional women about the ‘Glass Ceiling’ in Rosemead At the Wednesday, September 25th East Los Angeles-Montebello Business and Professional Women (BPW) dinner meeting, Attorney Gloria Ing will talk about the “Glass Ceiling” and how it may have affected her and other women. The dinner meeting will be at the DoubleTree Hotel, 888 Montebello Blvd., Rosemead. Networking is at 4:30 P.M. with the dinner and meeting starting at 5:00 P.M. The meeting is open to the public.

ties for students interested in pursuing a career in the field of law. Ms Ing is married to Monterey Park City Council Member Mitchell Ing for the past 24 years, and they have two children. As a product of the public school system of the Alhambra Unified School District, Ing enjoys giving back to her community. She attended Monterey Highlands Elementary School and Alhambra High School. She has served as President of the Monterey Highlands Elementary School PTA and as the corresponding secretary for the Mark Keppel High School PTSA.

La Salle to host Wounded Warrior Project game The La Salle Lancer Football program has been selected to host the Wounded Warrior Project game sponsored by Under Armour. This is an enormous honor as there are only six high schools across the country that have been selected to host this game. The game will be on September 20, when the Lancers take on cross-town rival Maranatha in the Showdown for the Crown. The project Mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors, while the Vision is to fos-

ter the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service mem-

bers in our nation’s history. The purpose of the Wounded Warrior Project is to raise awareness and

enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members. Two Wounded Warriors will be at the game as honorary Lancer Team Captains. Special pre-game and half time activities are scheduled. Donations and designated proceeds from the event will be given to the Wounded Warrior Project. For more information please see www.woundedwarriorproject.org/.

Pasadena School District launches “I’m In!” campaign

Hopes to encourage students to return to school Students who have not yet been to school for the 2013-2014 school year will have visitors Wednesday, Sept. 18 as part of the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) “I’m In!” school attendance campaign. Volunteers and staff from PUSD and the city of Pasadena will visit homes across the district to find students who have been chronically absent since August or have not returned to school this academic year to counter the immediate and long-term effects of chronic absenteeism. During the Sept. 18 student recovery day, volunteers will target absent students at all grade levels to determine whether they left the district and enrolled at another school or if they have family, social, or economic issues that prevent them from attending school. Counselors and staff will offer on the spot help and support to bring them back to school to complete their education. “Our schools are working at an accelerated pace and a single day of missed instruction can adversely affect the student’s academic progress,” said PUSD Superintendent Jon R. Gundry. “Immediate action is necessary because research tells us that missing or skipping school occasionally in the early grades can easily become a habit that put students on track to drop out of school.” Student attendance is also important to the dis-

trict’s financial bottom line. Schools are funded based on Average Daily Attendance (ADA), meaning that if a child does not show up for at least part of the academic day, the school loses the daily funding allocated for that student. A one percent increase in the district’s annual attendance rate would mean an extra $888,000 in funding from the state for PUSD schools. The “I’m In!” campaign is part of an overall district strategy to monitor and prevent excessive absences by students at all grade levels as well as provide options to students who would drop out of school because of the inability to attend school during the traditional academic day. In October, PUSD will begin using Attention to Attendance (A2A), a program that links with the district’s student information system to monitor absences and automatically generate and mail letters to parents/guardians when students are truant three times, more than 30 minutes late to school or class, or have excessive excused and unexcused absences. A2A will also allow schools to document interventions and develop solutions in partnership between the student, family and local resources. In addition to letters being sent to the home, PUSD will be calling the homes of students who are not at school in both the midmorn-

ing and in the evening to notify parents that their child was not in school. These automated messages from School Messenger, the districts’ parental notification service, are designed to ensure that the school and parents/guardians are on the same page when it comes to the daily whereabouts of students. On Sept. 23, PUSD’s Twilight school will open its doors, providing several different programs for Pasadena area students. Among the options are classes for students who are not on track to graduate or those who need to remediate D and F grades for college readiness; diploma options for older students who would benefit from a non-traditional school schedule to meet requirements for graduation and ease the transition to community college; and a GED program for adult students who wish to earn their diploma. Twilight school hours are from 4 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. and classes will initially be held at Rose City High School. The credit classes will use blended instruction where students will receive both direct and online instruction. Career development and English language development classes will also be offered. Interested individuals that are not currently attending a PUSD school should contact Jack Loos at (626) 3965883 or loos.jack@pusd.us to enroll.

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.

POLICE BLOTTERS Arcadia PD

Sunday, September 8: Just after 6:20 p.m., an officer was dispatched to a hit and run traffic collision at the intersection of Huntington Drive and Golden West Avenue. The driver of a white Mazda Mia failed to stop for a red light and collided into another vehicle. The driver fled the scene without exchanging information with the victim; however, witnesses were able to record the suspect’s license plate number. The victim declined medical attention for pain in his left arm and neck area. A short time later, officers responded to the suspect’s residence in the City of San Gabriel where they also located the suspect vehicle. The suspect explained that he fled the scene because his license was suspended. The 64-year-old Hispanic male was arrested and transported to the Arcadia City Jail for booking. At approximately 7:15 p.m., an officer observed four passengers inside a moving vehicle without seat belts and conducted an enforcement stop on Duarte Road at Goldenwest Avenue. A records check revealed the 21-year-old Asian male driver had an expired license. He was arrested and transported to the Arcadia City Jail for booking. All four passengers were cited for the listed violation and released in the field. Monday, September 9: At about 2:11p.m., an officer was dispatched to Motel 6, 225 Colorado Place, in regards to stolen credit card report. The victim explained her residence located in the City of Pasadena was burglarized on September 6th during which her credit card and other prop-

erty items were stolen. The victim was notified by her credit card company that a subject staying in room #209 was attempting to use her credit card for a $100 pizza purchase. An investigation revealed a 30-year-old Hispanic female was in possession of the victim’s credit card, passport, and other items. She was arrested and transported to the Arcadia City Jail for booking along with a 32-year-old White male who was in possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Around 7:12 p.m., an officer responded to a residence in the 300 block of North Fourth Avenue in regards to a burglary investigation. Unknown suspect(s) entered the residence through an unlocked door, ransacked the master bedroom, and tampered with the victim’s motorcycle. The suspect(s) gathered several items of property inside a basket; however, they left the property behind as they fled the location. No evidence was located and no one reported seeing or hearing anything suspicious. Tuesday, September 10: Shortly after 2:20 a.m., an officer made contact with a suspicious vehicle that was stopped in the area of First Avenue and Colorado Boulevard. The officer noticed the front passenger side window was broken. An investigation revealed the driver was handling a firearm while driving and accidentally shot one round in an unknown direction. The officer discovered the 53-year-old Hispanic male was under the influence of alcohol with a blood alcohol content greater than 0.08 percent. The suspect was arrested and transported to the Arcadia City Jail for

booking. The officer located the spent shell casing in the rear passenger seat of the vehicle and no injuries were reported.

Rosemead City Notices NOTICE OF INTENT TO ADOPT A NEGATIVE DECLARATION AND NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING BEFORE THE CITY COUNCILOF THE CITY OF ROSEMEAD ON OCTOBER 8, 2013 NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Rosemead City Council will conduct a public hearing on Tuesday, October 8, 2013 at 7:00 p.m., or soon thereafter as the matter may be heard, at Rosemead City Hall, located at 8838 East Valley Boulevard, Rosemead, regarding the adoption of a Comprehensive Zoning Code Update (Project). Anyone interested in this matter is invited to comment on the project by written response or personal appearance at the public hearing. MUNICIPAL CODE AMENDMENT 10-07 AND ZONE CHANGE 13-01: The City of Rosemead has completed an Initial Study to complete a comprehensive update of the City’s Zoning Code (Title 17 of the Rosemead Municipal Code) that is pursued to implement General Plan policy and to add provisions mandated by California State law. Revisions to the City’s existing Zoning Map and Single-Family Residential Design Guidelines are proposed to ensure that these documents are internally consistent with the proposed Zoning Code Update. Amendments to the City’s existing Home Occupation business license regulations (Title 5 of the Municipal Code, Chapter 5.41 – Home Occupations) are included in the Project for the purpose of allowing Cottage Food Operations (CFOs) as home occupations in residential zoning districts in accordance with State law. Lastly, the Project also proposes the adoption of “City Procedures for Implementation of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA),” as State law requires that each city adopt its own procedures for evaluating projects under CEQA guidelines within its jurisdiction. On September 16, 2013, the City of Rosemead Planning Commission conducted a duly noticed public hearing. Upon hearing all testimonies from the public, the Commission recommended approval of this request to the City Council. The Planning Commission also made findings of environmental adequacy and recommended that the City Council adopt the proposed Negative Declaration. ENVIRONMENTAL DETERMINATION: An Initial Study was undertaken to determine if the proposed project may have a significant effect on the environment. The Initial Study was prepared and completed in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) guidelines. On the basis of the Initial Study, the City of Rosemead has concluded that the project would have a less than significant impact on the environment and has therefore, prepared a Draft Negative Declaration (ND). The ND reflects the independent judgment of the City as a lead agency per CEQA guidelines. The project site is not on a list compiled pursuant to Government Code section 65962.5. The proposed project is not considered a project of statewide, regional or area-wide significance and would not affect highways or other facilities under the jurisdiction of the State of California Department of Transportation. The Negative Declaration and Initial Study were distributed for a 30-day public review and comment period from August 15, 2013 to September 13, 2012. Written comments must be received prior to the October 8, 2013 public hearing date. Comments must be sent to: Community Development Department, 8838 East Valley Boulevard, Rosemead, CA, 91770, Attention: Michelle Ramirez, Community Development Director. Pursuant to Government Code Section 65009 (b), if this matter is subsequently challenged in court, the challenge may be limited to only those issues raised at the public hearing described in this notice or in written correspondence delivered to the City of Rosemead at, or prior to, the public hearing. The Negative Declaration and other information pertinent to the above item are on file in the office of the Community Development Department, Planning Division. Any person interested in the above proceedings may appear at the time and place indicated to testify in support of, or in opposition to, the item(s). DATED THIS 19th DAY OF SEPTEMBER, 2013.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by JESUS GARCIA, A SINGLE MAN, dated 07/03/2007 and recorded 7/12/2007, as Instrument No. 20071651765, in Book N/A, Page N/A, of Official Records in the office of the County

Recorder of Los Angeles County, State of California, will sell on 10/21/2013 at 9:00AM, Doubletree Hotel Los Angeles-Norwalk, 13111 Sycamore Drive, Norwalk, CA 90650, Vineyard Ballroom at public auction, to the highest bidder for cash or check as described below, payable in full at time of sale, all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 1896 MIRADOR DRIVE, AZUSA, CA, 91702. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $673,665.73. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier’s checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state. Said sale will be made, in an ‘’AS IS’’ condition, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Deed of Trust, advances thereunder, with interest as provided, and the unpaid principal of the Note secured by said Deed of Trust with interest thereon as provided in said Note, plus fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. 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 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case 09-0063818. 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. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
