Madre Fire burns 250 acres in Angeles National Forest

Super scoopers, choppers and a DC10 help contain fire quickly, full containment expected Friday By Terry Miller The huge plume of smoke could be seen for miles on a clear and warm Sept. evening Monday as guests were enjoying the annual Taste of Arcadia at the Los Angeles County Arboretum. Many guests at the event - police officers and firefighters as well as this reporter, rushed to the scene near Highway 39. The traffic was bumper-to-bumper on the freeway, in part due to people looking at the fire and taking video with their iPhones while driving. Evacuation orders were lifted by Tuesday morning at the Madre Fire, but firefighters are still battling the brush fire burning in the Angeles National Forest behind Azusa. As of early Tuesday morning the blaze has burned 200 acres and was only 5 percent contained. The fire was moving north-west over a ridge away from several homes and further into the forest. The blaze broke out around Please see page 17

Arcadia Museum Education Center to break ground Sunday

In recent months there has been much discussion, bewilderment and in some cases - acrimony regarding the ancestries of Monrovia Association of Fine Arts (MAFA) and why there is no mention of those who founded the original arts group in any MAFA documents? A war of will and words

On September 29, 2013 at 5:30pm, the Arcadia City Council and the Arcadia Historical Museum Foundation will perform a ceremonial ground breaking on the construction of a Museum Education Center to be built between the Arcadia Community Center and the Gilb Museum of Arcadia Heritage.

Dorothy's Place For our children

By Dorothy Denne The phrase "for our children" is heard from politicians, educators, social reformers probably as often as any other single phrase. I generally hear it with a bit of skepticism, a hyperbolical phrase that I don't take too seriously. This week I had a different experience. A young friend showed me pictures from his I thingie of his daughter. The light in his eyes and the smile on his lips silently spoke volumes about her blessings. Later in the evening the T.V. screen showed me pictures from across the ocean of babies crying in hunger, young children running in terror or their bleeding twisted bodies being carried by

desperate adults. The dichotomy impelled me to share a prayer I had read, a serious "for our children": A Prayer For Our Children We pray for children who put chocolate fingers everywhere, who like to be tickled, who stomp in puddles and ruin their new pants,who sneak Popsicles before supper, who erase holes in math workbooks, who can never find their shoes. And we pray for those who stare at photographers from behind barbed wire, who are born in places we wouldn't be caught dead, who never go to the circus, who live in an X-rated world. We pray for children who bring us sticky kisses and fistfuls of dandelions, who hug us in a hurry and forget their lunch money, who cover themselves with Band-Aids and sing off-key and who slurp their soup. And we pray for those who never get dessert, who

have no safe blanket to drag behind, who can't find any bread to steal, who don't have any rooms to clean, whose pictures aren't on anybody's dresser, whose monsters are real. We pray for children who spend all their allowance before Tuesday, who throw tantrums in the grocery store and pick at their food, who shove dirty clothes under the bed, who get visits from the tooth fairy, who don't like to be kissed in front of the car pool, who squirm in church and scream in the phone, whose tears we sometimes laugh at and whose smiles can make us cry. And we pray for children who want to be carried, and for those who must. For those we never give up on, and for those who never get a chance. For those we smother, and for those who will grab the hand of anybody kind enough to offer. We pray for all our children.

The Sierra Madre Water Rate Study Each July, the water rates will increase by approximately 7.54% through 2015. The water rates will help meet current costs, debt payments, and set aside funds for maintenance and/or improvements in the water system. This is a direct statement made in a letter

to the people by the City of Sierra Madre. Do they really need another study? These charges are supposed to be based on actual costs. Let's examine what's being done. First, they have three tiers of rates, $2.21, $2.27 and $2.30 per unit. What is

the cost? Is it the low rate of $2.30? If so then the higher rates are an illegal charge to the users. If the highest rate is the true cost, then to lower rates in the City is engaged in selling the water at loss. Second, the meter charge as listed is:

They say the life of a meter is more than 10 years. Since this cost of a water meter starts at less than $100, and is less than $500.00 for the largest. Why are they charging so much? Is it to pay debts, maintain the system or is it their brainchild to replace the meters with meters that will provide usage figures direct to the City's computer? Thirdly, the large sewer rate is $22.20 bimonthly, $133.20/Year and $1,332.00 per year. Is this an honest charge, when they do not maintain the sewers that have over 100 different places that have been damaged for more than a year. Are they really being truthful? The simple fact is the City keeps charging more for the same thing and they do not maintain or fix anything in the whole system, from the supply to the delivery.

They also put in place all kinds of restrictions. 1). DO NOT WATER YOUR YARD during the daytime, and reduce the amount that is used in maintaining your landscape. Answer: T h e y expect you to get out of bed at night and go water your plants and do not waste water or use much so that the roots of your trees can get into the sewer system and cause further damages, which we will not repair. 2). DO NOT WASH YOUR CAR at home, that "wastes" 'water. They must think that it is cheaper to go to the car wash, and you must remember to "conserve". Conversely, it is perfectly okay, for the City to spend $75,000 for a new car wash for the City's vehicles, which will use (waste) water, and we're sure that this will be done during daylight hours. 3). DO NOT

COMPLAIN OR GRUMBLE while the City continues to charge us more for doing less. Does anybody that you know work in order to give their money to the City, State, or Federal Government? When are they going to make prudent use of the money they have, including the annual increases that they receive on property taxes. Of course, the current costs increase because we have to pay interest on the numerous loans that are on the books. Don't imply that the loans should be paid, or prepaid, but rather let us re-finance and extend the loans so that the people can pay for the increases in costs and interest. Will they keep their hands out of our wallets and purses? When will they manage the City's income correctly and quit asking for more? Need it be said: "You story does not hold water".

Saga of the last remaining diaper by Fran Syverson It’s only a rag, albeit a nice, soft, absorbent one. Why am I holding it up to look at it before gently folding it and putting it into the rag box? Because it is the last remaining diaper in my family, that’s why. It’s been around, unbelievably, for about 60 years. It shows its age; it’s pretty thin. And I’m pondering the journey it’s had! That diaper has been fastened onto my three babies—a son, a daughter, and a son. By fastened, I mean pinned with a huge safety pin. No stickytape fasteners then. Back in those days, we could choose diaper pins with colorful plastic clasps on them. Pink or blue, if you felt like indicating your baby’s gender. Pale green or buttery yellow, if it matched the nursery décor. Diaper laundry was usually a daily chore. We dropped the diapers into pails with lids in the interests of hygiene and aesthetics, and generally ran a load of them through the washer daily for the same reasons. Besides, our budgets wouldn’t allow for stocking up on huge numbers of them. For many years, I didn’t have a clothes dryer. That meant hanging the laundry on a wire or plastic clothesline in the back yard. It was a tedious routine, but it also meant

diapers that brought the fresh outdoors aroma back into the house with them. And of course, the sun and air promised squeaky-clean and germfree diapers. Then came the task of folding them to put away on a nursery shelf. Families who could afford it sometimes hired diaper services that provided a decorated, plastic-lined bucket. A driver came by every couple of days to exchange the used diapers for fresh, clean ones. What a luxury! Disposable diapers existed, even back then. But most moms in the fifties indulged in disposables only for traveling, or perhaps treks to grandparents’ homes. We didn’t use them often— so who of us worried about overflowing landfills? I look more closely at the ancient diaper I’m holding. I can still read “Curity” printed on it, now faintly. How many washings has that lettering survived? Hundreds, literally hundreds! And two denser lines are woven across the diaper’s width. They are guidelines, indicating where the diaper should be folded to fit the wee one. Daddies especially appreciated that. When we brought our daughter home from the hospital, the July weather was unbearably hot, and baby fretted. But grandma had a trick—she wrapped

Arcadia Church to present special revival gathering On Saturday, October 5th Lutheran Church of the Cross in Arcadia will hold a special Revival Gathering, entitled “The Meaning and Purpose of Life” featuring Pastor David Williamson of the famed Saddleback Church. Pastor Williamson, Campus Pastor at Saddleback Church in Corona, California. will share his passion to help others discover God’s love, plan and purpose for their lives. Saddleback Church, made famous by Pastor Rick Warren’s purpose-

driven philosophy and ministry, is one of the fastest growing and strongest churches. It has trained over 200,000 church leaders from around the world. The public is invited to this free event. Refreshments will be served following the presentation. The church is located at 66 W. Duarte Road (just west of Santa Anita Avenue). Further information may be had by phoning the church office at 626-4477232, or by visiting the church’s website at www. crossarcadia.org.

the naked baby snugly in a diaper, maybe this very one I’m fondling. Like swaddling clothes of yore, the gauzy diaper held the baby close, womblike, as she’d been only a few days before, and in it she felt cool and comfy. Babies grow up. What then, with the cloth diapers? For us, they took on new roles as both dishtowels and face towels on our High Sierra backpacking trips. After washing and drying our tin cups and plates with the diapers, we draped them over branches, and in no time they were dry. Just as kiddos grow up, camping days come to a close. Yet here is this lone Curity diaper, not yet thrown away. Now it’s just a rag, but a very good one, soft, absorbent, lintfree—and good for window washing. And here I stand, thinking of the decades it and I have spent together. I sigh, fold it, and reach up to put it into my rag-tag box of memories.

Smart Women Smart Money

By Emmy Hernandez Certified Financial Planner® Practitioner Attorney at Law Emmy, I’m retired and living mostly off Social Security. Last year, I withdrew a fairly large amount from my IRA. Because of this, my benefits will be taxed this year. I feel blindsided! Why is this? I thought Social Security benefits were tax free as they were taxed from my income years ago. I do understand your surprise and frustration. Many people who have their taxes done by a third party are unaware that their Social Security benefits may be taxed. Often, it’s not until someone completes the Social Security Benefits Worksheet to calculate the correct figure for line 20b of their 1040 that the truth comes out. (Eek, that last sentence made me sound like a bit of a tax geek.) Some history: this tax was initiated by the Reagan administration’s Social Security reforms in 1983. Before then, everyone received their benefits tax free. Yes, you did indeed originally pay into the program as a tax on your earned income. However behind the scenes, your employer also paid an equal amount each month and

that money was not taxed. Today, the tax rate on Social Security benefits is determined by your taxable, or provisional, income. For most households, provisional income is your Adjusted Gross Income, plus tax-exempt interest income, plus half of your Social Security benefits. (Foreign-earned income and higher education costs can also be factored in.) Think of that taxable 50% of your benefits as the untaxed portion that your past employers paid into the system. The 1983 law established a baseline of $25,000 for individuals and $32,000 for married couples. If your provisional annual earnings fall below this baseline then your benefits remain tax free. However, once this threshold is crossed, things change. Up to half of your annual benefit amount now becomes taxable. The additional monies you withdrew from your IRA very likely brought you above that baseline. Folks with large required minimum distributions from their IRAs face this problem. Likewise, benefit recipients who choose to take on a part-time job for extra income. In 1993, under President Clinton, another threshold was created: $34,000 for individuals and $44,000 for married couples. If you cross this second line, then up to 85% of your benefits can be taxed! Although I am loathe to add more fuel to the fire, there is yet another factor that stings: these two income thresholds are not indexed for inflation. In 1983, $32,000 in annual retirement income for a married couple offered a higher living standard than today. Likewise,

$44,000 was an impressive amount in 1993. Then, far fewer people were affected by these thresholds for taxing Social Security benefits. Now many retirees face this tax. Unfortunately, most are unaware of it. As a point of reference, in 1984 the tax on Social Security benefits brought $2.8 billion back into the Social Security system. But last year, the tax yielded $26.7 billion. There are different strategies to help avoid being taxed more than necessary on Social Security benefits. Ultimately, you want to keep your provisional income under the taxable limit. One option is to convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. Income from Roth accounts is not included when calculating the provisional income affecting the taxation of Social Security benefits. Please be aware that such a conversion is considered a withdrawal from a traditional IRA and 401(k). This financial transfer is counted as taxable income and will greatly add to your tax liability for the year it’s implemented. But, taking the onetime tax hit might be worth it. By converting, you could reduce the tax burden on future Social Security benefits. The goal is to plan ahead to lesson your tax burden. Every family’s situation differs and any tax deferral strategy must be tailored to suit those needs. The rollover option I’ve outlined above is a generality. Please consult a qualified financial advisor before making any important decisions. I truly hope this information was useful. Let me end this week’s column by inviting everyone to attend an important Social Security

workshop I’m hosting at the San Gabriel public library on Saturday, October 12th at 10 am. Join me to learn how to help maximize your Social Security benefits and discuss potential tax saving strategies. I encourage you to reserve your seats by calling my office at 626943-8833. I hope to see you there. Securities and advisory services offered through NATIONAL PLANNING CORP (NPC) member FINRA, SIPC, a Registered Investment Adviser. EH Financial Group, Inc. and NPC are separate entities and unrelated companies. The relevant income for Social Security taxation includes all items which are normally part of your adjusted gross income, plus tax-exempt interest income, plus 50% of your Social Security benefits. (Historically, the 50% represents the fact that half of your Social Security contributions were made by your employer and thus not taxed.) [3] There are two relevant base amounts; unlike most income limits in the tax code, they are not adjusted for inflation. The lower base is $25,000 if you are single, $32,000 if married filing jointly. The upper base is $34,000 if you are single, $44,000 if married filing jointly.[4] If your relevant income is below the lower base, none of your benefits are taxable. For every $1 of relevant income between the lower and upper bases, 50 cents of your Social Security benefits become taxable, up to 50% of your total benefits. For every $1 of relevant income above the upper bases, 85 cents of your Social Security benefits become taxable, up to a total taxable

amount of 85% of your benefits.[5] Rate of taxation The bottom line: as income rises, more Social Security benefits are subject to taxation, until eventually a maximum of 85% of all benefits are included in income for tax purposes! The best thing to do may be managing income earlier to avoid exposure in the later years. For instance, Roth conversions before a client starts Social Security benefits can leave a more flexible pool of money to draw upon in the later years - not to mention avoiding RMDs - allowing the client to avoid 22.5%, 27.75%, or 46.25% marginal tax rates down the road. Of course, the caveat for Roth conversions is still not to do too much at once, driving up the current tax rate to an untenable level For lower-income retirees, less than 85% will be taxable, but many retirees in a 15% tax bracket will face a marginal tax rate much higher than 15%. the income levels where Social Security phases in - which can begin with as little as $25,000 of income for individuals - tax rates rise high enough that more proactive tax planning, from Roth conversions to the use of annuities and asset location strategies, becomes crucial to manage a client's overall tax exposure! Solutions You might consider accelerating income into one tax year or pushing off income to another year, says paying off a mortgage with cash savings could preserve benefits from tax. In the year you convert a traditional IRA to a Roth, your benefits will likely get taxed because a conversion adds to your

taxable income. You might consider doing smaller conversions over several years in amounts that take you to the top of your current tax bracket. Taking the one-time tax hit could be worth it. Withdrawals from a traditional IRA and 401(k) are counted as taxable income. By converting, you may eliminate or reduce the tax hit on future benefits. "Roth income is not counted in the Social Security taxation calculation," says Larry Rosenthal, president of Financial Planning Services, in Manassas, Va. Tax deferral Tax deferral strategies can also be appealing to manage Social-Securitytriggered higher marginal tax rates. This might not only include just continuing to maintain and stretch taxdeferred IRAs (to the extent they're not converted), but also the use of non-qualified fixed or variable annuities to defer income; while taxdeferral doesn't eliminate exposure to the effect entirely, it's nonetheless true that tax deferral itself is worth a whole lot more when the client's marginal tax rate is so high! Similarly,effective asset location strategies to shelter the most high-income tax-inefficient assets also become more important where client marginal tax rates are so high.

Associate pastor arrested in alleged sexual abuse of women parishioners in Norwalk An associate pastor has been arrested by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s detectives for the alleged sexual abuse of numerous female parishioners. Sheriff’s Special Victims Bureau detectives received information that from October 2004 through September 2012, adult women of the Las Buenas Nuevas Church in Norwalk were victims of sexual assaults committed by a suspect. The suspect in these crimes was identified by the victims as an associate pastor and counselor at the church. The suspect moved to the Los Angeles area from Argentina in 2004. Many of the victims are Spanish-speaking undocumented immigrants. The suspect allegedly preyed upon the victims’ vulnerability. He did this by invoking fear by threatening to tell the victims if they reported him he would have the victims deported, while additionally threatening to expose the victims to public embarrassment and ridicule.

The information came to deputies attention when over 20 women ranging from age 18 to 39 implicated the suspect to a third party. That person contacted sheriff's deputies. On September 13, 2013, working with the Sheriff’s Special Victims Bureau lead investigator, detectives from the Sheriff’s Major Crimes Bureau/Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force, located and arrested 53-year old Suspect Jorge Juan Castro, a resident of Norwalk. He was arrested at his Norwalk home. The suspect is also an associate pastor at a church in Riverside County, so authorities there have been notified of this arrest. There are no known victims in Riverside County. The suspect was booked on an arrest warrant for six felony California Penal Code charges of Rape (261(a) (2) P.C.), Oral Copulation (288a(a) (c)(2) P.C.), and Penetration by a foreign object, (289(a)(1)(A) P.C.) The suspect remains in custody in

City of Monrovia wins statewide award for youth employment program The League of California Cities has selected the city of Monrovia as a 2013 Helen Putnam Award winner. The 2013 award winners were honored during the Opening General Session of the League’s Annual Conference & Expo at the Sacramento Convention Center held Sept. 18 – 20. Monrovia won the Ruth Vreeland Award for Engaging Youth in City Government for the city’s Youth Employment Service (YES) program to provide job training, mentoring and internship opportunities to Monrovia-at risk youth. Now in its sixth year, YES has successfully graduated over 135 at-risk kids. The program provides mentoring and intervention features geared toward high school students, specifically those who have failing grades, unstable home lives, a police record or simply bad attitudes. Launched in 2007, the program is designed to address the community’s need to improve the quality of life and opportunities for local youth in response to gang violence in some areas of the city. Studies indicated that the relative effectiveness

of combating gang activity was to place 70 percent of its efforts on prevention and intervention, and 30 percent on suppression. In Monrovia, the allocation of resources was reverse: 80 percent was being spent on suppression, while only 20 percent was being spent on prevention and intervention. At the time there were fewer job opportunities for the city’s youth and funding for internships. YES was started to address these issues by partnering with the Santa Anita Family YMCA, Monrovia Unified School District and the Monrovia Chamber of Commerce. “We are honored to receive the Helen Putnam award and are very proud of the YES program’s success. Of those youth who have graduated, we’ve seen grade point averages increase by 14%, absenteeism decrease by 200% and tardiness decrease by 145%,” said Mayor Mary Ann Lutz. “Many of these youth have focused their energies back into the community, which makes the YES program even more rewarding.” Established in 1982, the Helen Putnam Award for Excellence program recog-

nizes outstanding cities that deliver the highest quality and level of service in the most effective manner possible. Monrovia was one of 13 cities out of 149 applicants throughout California to receive this coveted award. Particular attention and credit is given to applications specifically advancing the League’s strategic priorities (www.cacities.org/priorities), which are determined each year by the board of directors. The award is given annually in 12 categories: CCS Partnership Intergovernmental Collaboration Award; Community Services and Economic Development; Economic Development through the Arts; Enhancing Public Trust, Ethics, and Community Involvement; Health and Wellness Programs; Housing Programs and Innovations; Internal Administration; Planning and Environmental Quality; Public Safety; Public Works, Infrastructure and Transportation; the Ruth Vreeland Award for Engaging Youth in City Government; and the League Partners Award for Excellence in City-Business Relations.

Last June, she competed against more than 1,000 of the brightest blind and visually impaired students in 39* states and three Canadian provinces and won first place. Tiffany has been competing in this event since she was 7 years old and has won the North American competition three times. She still believes in the usefulness of Braille although, according to the National Federation of the Blind, only 10 percent of the 1.3 million legally blind people in the U.S. now read Braille. The Arcadia Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) is delighted to have this bright, personable young woman as guest speaker at its Monday evening, October 14 meeting.

Temple City—Homes wanted for “Yard of the Quarter” honors Kicking off the new Yard of the Quarter Awards, the City of Temple City invites nominations of best kept homes and gardens for its first competition Fall Colors, judging in October. Winning homeowners receive Council recognition and a specially designed yard sign acknowledging their demonstrated excellence in property maintenance. Fall Colors is the first in a series of four contests to be held over the next year. Each is themed seasonally, with judging

in October, December (Ready for the Holidays), April (Spring is in the Air) and June (Water-Wise). This program is just a really fun way to recognize residents who put extra time and effort into decorating their yards and gardens, while also encouraging the entire community to do the same, says Mayor Cynthia Stemquist. When everyone takes pride of ownership and practices good property maintenance, it only reenergizes our neighborhoods but also

helps keep property values up. Competition is divided into three neighborhood zones, with a judging panel selecting one winner from each zone for best upkeep and interpretation of quarterly themes. Entering homes must be within City limits and www.templecity. us<http//www.templecity. us>,or at City facilities. For information about the contest, log onto www. templecity.us<http://www. templecity.us>or contact City Hall at (626) 285-2171.

Questions about Living with Macular Degeneration? Dr. Richard Shuldiner of Low Vision Optometry of Southern California can answer your questions. Q. To get help with glasses, does it matter if I have wet or dry ARMD? A. No. Low Vision doctors are concerned with how much residual vision is available. Our telescope, microscope, E-Scoop & prismatic glasses work for both wet and dry ARMD. Q. Are the glasses expensive? A. Not anymore than hearing aids are expensive. Both low vision glasses and hearing aids allow for a better quality of life and are well worth the investment. No interest financing is available. Q. What if my eyes change or get worse? A. Low Vision glasses can usually be altered in prescription and magnification, should the need arise. At our office, there is no charge for changing the Rx or magnification for one year from the date of the examination. Q. What about this new telescopic implant I’ve heard about? A. The Implantable Miniature Telescope may be a wonderful advance for a select few ARMD patients. However, there are significant risks involved. After your low vision evaluation, I will be able to assist you in making the right decision about surgery or glasses. Q. Do I have to come in for an appointment to know if you can help me? A. Yes and No. I invented the free low vision telephone interview to determine what your chances are of being helped. The questions I ask on the phone an allow me to predict how much help is available. You can then make an informed decision about making an appointment.

The Social Whirl CalRTA legislative advocate to address retired teachers Friends of the Arcadia Library Half Price Book Sale Retired teachers in Benefits to California Building in Arcadia Park, October 7 - October 12, 2013

the California Retired Teachers’ Association #71 (CalRTA-SGV) are eagerly awaiting a legislative update from Legislative Advocate David L. Walrath, Sacramento. Walrath will particularly deal with the issues of Social Security Fairness and the unfunded obligation (also called unfunded liability). These two issues dramatically impact current and future retirees. Walrath will explain more about the recent Social Security Fairness Act and how it hopes to rectify the unfairness of current legislation that denies earned and paid-for Social Security

educators and their spouses. Walrath will tell how retired educators can support the Social Security Fairness Act. Another issue that Walrath will discuss is the CalSTRS unfunded obligation. He will emphasize the importance of involving retired teachers in urging the governor and our legislators to address the funding issue before the unfunded obligation puts current and future retirees’ nonvested benefits at risk. Retired teachers and guests can hear David Walrath speak at the Friday, October 11, luncheon meeting of CalRTA #71. The meeting will take place at the Senior Center

405 W. Santa Anita Avenue, Arcadia, next to the Lawn Bowling Greens. Ample parking is available. The cost of the luncheon for members and guests is $10.

By Terry Miller Perhaps they’re a cross between the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band and the Rolling Stones or then again, maybe they’re not. Actually, it is very difficult to place a label on these blokes. Very hard indeed. Nonetheless we’ll try…art, music and philosophy with a tremendously off-the-wall following with a British sense of humour in American trousers comes to mind when we think of Snotty Scotty and his Hankies. Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the 1988 Snotty Scotty & the Hankies LP record on the Doo Dah Record label, the legendary lads will play the album in actual order of the original wax, in its entirety - for the first time EVER. When, you ask?: We’ll tell you Saturday Night - November 2, 2013 when they feel like it. According to our inside source, Sierra Madre Sue, the lads will perform at T. Boyle's Tavern in Pasadena - it was Toes Tavern when/where the record release party took place on 11/13/1988. Approximately 150 "producers" who contributed $10 each to make the album happen are credited on the back of the album jacket. That list will soon be published and Sierra Madre Sue wants to get as many of them as possible to attend this once in a lifetime event YOU may be one of them and not even know it. This is a MUST DO for any music fan in Pasadena.

Bomb threat locks down Temple City Schools Wednesday Longden Elementary School and TCHS were on lockdown Wednesday after a caller phoned in bomb threats at both the school and a sheriff’s station according to a report. The phone calls were received just after 7:50 a.m. via both a call directly to school, 9501 E. Wendon

Street, as well as a 9-1-1 call, Los Angeles County sheriff’s dept. spokesman confirmed. The caller indicated that bombs would go off according to Temple Station officials. Officials placed the school on lockdown and evacuated the children to

the athletic field as deputies began a campus search to look for anything out of the ordinary. No bombs were found and the all-clear was given after a complete search of both schools. The CHP also received one of the phone calls this morning at about 7:50AM.

San Gabriel dedicates 1823 Chapman’s Mill By Shel Segal

History is alive and well in San Gabriel. Officials and community leaders gathered at the San Gabriel Mission on Tuesday to dedicate the restoration and relocation to a city park of the sole remaining section of a masonry millrace built in 1823 for Chapman’s Mill. Chapman’s Mill was a cornerstone of the agricultural community centered on the old mission. The 20-foot, 15-ton section of masonry waterway was relocated to Plaza Park on the grounds of the mission and installed as an educational exhibit, featuring running water, for the many visitors to the adjacent mission. Excavated by archaeologists, the millrace was carefully moved during the summer from a nearby railroad right-of-way to permit mass excavation for an Alameda Corridor-East Construction Authority project to lower the railroad in a 30-foot-deep, concrete-walled trench with bridges spanning the new trench at four crossings in San Gabriel. Mike Hart, a historian who was very knowledgeable with the millrace, said it was part of a larger system that irrigated the San Gabriel Valley in those days. “This millrace was part

-Photo by Shel Segal

of a large water system that irrigated over 6,000 acres of land altogether,” Hart said. “It’s a mortar-lined structure that channeled water directly to the mill before in went in to turn the mill wheel. It carried water. It was an aqueduct.” Hart added there isn’t much left of this kind and that what is found needs to be preserved. “This find is very important because the San Gabriel Valley developed so quick after the mission era that a lot of the principle mission irrigation system and buildings were destroyed,” he said. “At the end of the 1840s Americans had started to come in and this area developed so very fast, which erased a lot of the old mission system.”

Fr. Bruce Wellems of the mission agreed. “Anytime you find artifacts like that it connects you with history,” Wellems said. “So that’s cool. I never made the connection of how important aqueducts were to the life of the mission.” Steve Wilkinson of San Dimas works at the nearby Mission Playhouse and stopped by for the festivities. He said it was wonderful the millrace was being preserved. “I think it looks great,” he said. “I think it is way cool they decided to put it here instead of just getting dug up and lost forever.

Methodist Hospital is turning pink Methodist Hospital is going pink , albeit temporarily. In observance of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the nursing staff and others who wear the usual blue exam gloves will wear pink gloves during October. “This is a small but visible way we can help increase awareness among our patients and their families,” said Methodist Hospital President and CEO Dan Ausman. “We want our patients to achieve their best health for life, and this is a positive reminder for people to be proactive in their own healthcare by getting regular check-ups.” This year more than 200,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among American women and more than 2,000 new cases in men. Except cancers of the skin, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed in women. About 40,000 deaths from breast cancer are expected in 2013. Breast cancer ranks

second behind lung cancer as a cause of cancer death in women. Because breast cancer typically shows no symptoms when a tumor is small and most treatable, it is important for women to follow recommended screening guidelines to detect breast cancer at an early stage. Larger tumors may become evident as a breast mass, which is often painless. Less common symptoms include persistent changes to the breast, such as thickening, swelling, distortion, tenderness, skin irritation, redness, scaliness or nipple abnormalities. Breast pain is more likely to be caused by benign conditions and is not a common early symptom of breast cancer. The most important risk factor for breast cancer – besides being female – is increasing age. Potentially modifiable risk factors include weight gain after age 18, being overweight or obese, use of menopausal hormone ther-

apy, physical inactivity and alcohol consumption. Breast cancer screening for women who are at average risk includes clinical breast exam and mammography, which can often detect breast cancer at an early stage when treatment is more effective and a cure is more likely. Methodist Hospital’s cancer program offers the most advanced cancer diagnostics, treatment and personalized care, including advanced radiation therapy program, chemotherapy, prostate seek program, surgery, pain management, cancer support groups and a new Positive Appearance Center for cancer patients. The Cancer Resource Center staff offers help and support to those who have had a cancer diagnosis. The center is open 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday – Thursday, and 7 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Friday.

Historians at odds about MAFA's founding members cemented the deal.” “ If Lapson was involved in any way, its news to me…” Brubaker told Beacon Media. To this, Lapson replied - “Hogwash!” Brubaker said he had no desire to talk with Lapson and appeared angry that she was disputing his father’s role in MAFA.

I gave you a stack of original newspaper stories that were connected with Monrovia ’s art activities. They were all promoted by me ( Lapson). I handled all publicity to promote the Library Exhibitions and the Annual Festivals. I also gave you a copy of the original ‘entry form- rules for exhibitors’.

Mildred Lapson has expressed deep concern over the lack of recognition for her involvement in MAFA’s early days-Photo by Terry Miller

All those copies that I gave you were all I had. Whoever Harvey Brubaker’s son is, I never met him, nor do I know anything of the hogwash he’s given you!!.” she writes. In the 1950’s, Pasadena Society of Artists, held fund raising auctions and affairs at the Huntington Sheraton Hotel, and held Annual Art Festivals in Pasadena on Colorado Blvd. and around the City Hall. Here’s what Lapson told the Monrovia Weekly: “Living in Monrovia, my thoughts of introducing similar Fine Art interest here, in my own home town became my passion. The Alvord Room in the Monrovia Library became the “Alvord Room Gallery” which I created, and the most famous California artists were invited to show their work for prestigious exhibitions there. I ran and secured the art exhibitions, lectures, receptions and handled publicity. A ceremony of commendation was held for me at the Monrovia City Hall in appreciation for what I was doing, and I was presented with a Certificate of Honor, plus an Honorary Life Membership to the Monrovia Library. In October 1964, I alone introduced and founded the first Annual Monrovia Art Festival. After contacting the L.A. Times, a photo was published which includes Katherine Ainsworth, Harvey Brubaker.

assistance. In the Mid 60’s LA Times critic Henry Seldis said, “If you want to see where Fine Art is happening, go to the city of Monrovia”. “I devoted my life and all my energy and time to create this dream of mine back in 1963 and 1964, and in one poof, I was cut out

CORTEZ

Others say that what happened in 1963-64, stays in the early 1960’s. An inimitable predicament, indeed. According to a MAFA Board member Ginger Van Hook “….A teacher of Fine Arts for the California Board of Education for over five decades, Mildred Lapson pioneered the Fine Art interest and art programs throughout Southern California in the early 1950’s. Her vision was to enrich our lives by bringing fine arts to the community. In 1963, she initiated the first art gallery in Monrovia, in the Alvord Room of the Monrovia Public Library. Miss Lapson invited famous, professional California artists to exhibit their work in the Alvord Room Gallery. Monthly public receptions and enthusiastic discussions with the exhibiting artists were held. The following year, in 1964, she founded the first Monrovia Annual Festival of Art, which still thrives today. The then art critic of the Los Angeles Times, Henry Seldis said in his column, “If you want to see where fine art is happening, go to Monrovia.” Lapson sent a letter to MAFA’s President asking why her name has been left out of documents pertaining to MAFA’s history. We print her letter(in part) here: “Dear Bill: If you remember, quite a while back when you learned that I was the founder of the Monrovia Annual Festival of Art, you were in my studio.

Ainsworth was the librarian of the Monrovia Library. Harvey Brubaker was an interested bystander. They appreciated my work and ideas, but were not “founders” of anything. To make the Annual Art Festivals official, signatures were needed for an Art Festival Association. Katherine and Ed Ainsworth, and Harvey Brubaker signed. That was their part - - their signatures for making the Association official. They were not the founders. However, official help I did receive for the 2 day festival, was from the Monrovia Police Department, many of whom stood guard all night at Library Park - - - and at that, my husband and I took food and hot coffee to them in the middle of the night. This was recorded in an old KGEM interview. (This has since been confirmed by KGEM )” After running the festival herself during the early years, Lapson began recruiting volunteers to help and to teach them the ropes, so that they could continue running the annual fairs without her

has essentially started with Monrovia artist Mildred Lapson and the son of a man who was one of the signatories on some association documents, Harvey Brubaker. According to MAFA president Bill Bebee: “There is no real historical documentation to clearly show whose idea the first art festival was but Miss Lapson was certainly responsible for organizing the art exhibitions in the Library’s Alvord room. Other than the brief time that we gave credit to Miss Lapson which was later challenged by David Brubaker (Harvey Brubaker’s son) with news articles that pointed more to his dad, we have not singled anyone out as the Association’s founder because we do not have the documentation.” Pete Ostrye in the “Monrovia Centennial Review” had this to say, "The annual Monrovia Arts Festival was started in 1964 by Katherine Ainsworth and Harvey Brubaker to encourage and foster an appreciation of the arts." He made no reference to Mildred Lapson in that piece. Upon hearing this, Lapson responded: “For one thing, I have no idea in the world who Pete Ostrye is, and it is not true that Katherine Ainsworth OR Harvey Brubaker had anything to do with the founding of the First Annual(Festival). Their signatures along with several others were used to make the Association official. They had NOTHING to do with the founding. I alone founded the First Annual Festival….no one else but me!” MAFA President Bill Bebee, fathomably, is taking the diplomatic course in these rather rough seas and leaving it up to the more wise Monrovia historians to delve into. However, there are many issues that have ostensibly caused substantial antagonism between local artist Mildred Lapson and the Harvey Brubaker family. Mildred Lapson, now 90, told Beacon Media that she devoted her life in the 1960’s to start the organization and is deeply wounded by the lack of written acknowledgement in MAFA literature. Brubaker’s son said that Lapson “ had nothing to do with the founding of MAFA and that it was three librarians and Brubaker who

Governor Brown signs bill to help protect and preserve California's coast As tens of thousands gathered across the state for California Coastal Cleanup Day last week, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. announced that he has signed AB 754 by Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance), which gives taxpayers the opportunity to support coastal conservation efforts with the check of a box on their state income tax return. “The beauty and allure of California’s coast is unrivaled and this bill gives taxpayers a simple way to help keep it that way,” said Governor Brown. Each September, on the third Saturday of the month, Californians gather

to take part in the state's largest volunteer event, California Coastal Cleanup Day. Last year more than 65,000 volunteers removed nearly 770,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from California’s beaches, lakes and waterways. In 1993, California Coastal Cleanup Day was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the “largest garbage collection” ever organized. Over the years, California Coastal Cleanup Day has spread inland from the beaches and now includes urban efforts to “stop trash where it starts” before litter can make its way into the state’s waterways. AB 754 will create a

check-off box on California personal income tax forms. This will allow taxpayers to make charitable contributions to the California Beach and Coastal Enhancement Account. Funds will be available through the California Coastal Commission’s WHALE TAIL Grants Program, which supports public education on the state’s marine and coastal resources, Adopt-ABeach programs and other beach maintenance and coastal habitat restoration projects that have an educational component. For the full text of the bill, visit: http://leginfo. ca.gov/bilinfo.html.

Holden to speak to Monrovia town council Assemblymember Chris Holden will present his “State of the State” address to the Monrovia City Council on Tuesday, October 1 at 7:30 pm. Assemblymember Holden, who represents the 41st Assembly District

that includes Monrovia, will update the council on the 2013 Legislative session which ended last week. Included in the discussion will be a review of the state budget, prison overcrowding, affordable healthcare, education,

and bills promoting job growth. In his freshman term, Assemblymember Holden had eight bills sent to Governor Brown for signature. When signed, they will go into effect January 1, 2014.

State schools chief Tom Torlakson visits nation’s capital to push for student broadband access State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson will be in Washington, D.C., next week as he continues his push for increased federal assistance to provide broadband access for all students and schools across California. At issue is the federal Schools and Libraries Program, more commonly known as E-rate, a surcharge on long distance telephone bills established in 1997 that provides discounts to assist schools and libraries in obtaining affordable telecommunications and Internet access. Torlakson has championed efforts to update E-rate to narrow the digital divide. In March 2012, he convened his Education Technology Task Force to bring 21st century tools into California’s classrooms. He has also brought together other state superintendents via the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) to work together on this issue. “The world has changed, and our economy and society thrive on interconnectivity,”

Torlakson said. “E-rate is one of the tools we have to help close the digital divide for California’s children. E-rate has been a success, but now’s the time to make it even better so more schools and libraries can take advantage of it.” In June, President Obama proposed modernizing the E-rate program as part of his ConnectED initiative, which Torlakson at the time called “a huge step in the right direction.” The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) opened a public comment period soon after. Torlakson encouraged local superintendents and other education stakeholders across California to weigh in; the California Department of Education submitted its comments this week. Among the state’s priorities are expanding the program; making it easier to apply for and receive funding; ensuring the flexibility to take advantage of future technologies; distributing funding according to highest-priority needs; and allowing for ad-

equate bandwidth to support wireless access as schools continue moving toward a one-toone computing ratio. Monday in Washington, Torlakson will co-chair the CCSSO’s Digital Learning Task Force. The full-day gathering will include task force discussion and meeting with FCC commissioners and staff, along with representatives of the White House Domestic Policy Council and the U.S. Department of Education. Tuesday, Torlakson will meet with the offices of Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer of California, as well as Senator Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia, who is one of the original authors of the Erate program. “With 6.2 million children, our student population here in California is bigger than the total populations of some 30 other states,” Torlakson said. “To truly reach and teach every child—to prepare them for the world they’ll encounter outside our classrooms— technology has to be a part of what we do.”

Sierra Madre water meeting Monday

Holden's address to Sierra Madre council doesn't sit well with some By Terry Miller The fourth meeting regarding city water will be 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 30 in council chambers and will give a preview of the upcoming water and sewer rate study. And the fifth and final meeting will be 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 10 in council chambers and will present highlights from the first four meetings. Aguilar said that while the rate and the conservation issues are separate, they have hit Sierra Madre at the same time. However, not all residents are satisfied.

it? If this SGVMWD hookup is only temporary, why is the consultant talking about needing to raise water rates in part because the cost of importing water is going to go up in 2015? Another question. Why would importing water like this become a permanent condition? More development, perhaps? I asked about this from the public comment box, but no answer was given. There will be another opportunity to get an answer, both on that and many other questions. Apparently the need to raise water rates for the third time in 4 years is a pressing one for City Hall. So much so that they now plan to pick this conversation up again at a special meeting on the subject next Monday evening. Something that was rather spontaneously cooked up late last evening.” The Tattler also had an interesting take on Chris Holden’s much publicized visit to Sierra Madre council: “Assemblyman Chris Holden supports the use of arbitrary Eminent Domain in Redevelopment"

More bizarre behavior I'm afraid. Our Assemblyman came to speak to the City of Sierra Madre last night about what he called the "State of the State." It turned into a sales pitch for some very scary Sacramento initiatives. None more so than SB-1. Here is what Chris Holden's meeting handout had to say on that topic: SB-1 (Steinberg) - Allows cities to establish a Sustainable Communities Investment Authority and direct tax increment revenues to that Authority in order to address blight by supporting development in transit priority project areas, small walkable communities and clean energy manufacturing sites. SB-1 is little more than a mechanism by which shady Sacramento politicians like Chris Holden can pay back the unions, developers and Realty organizations that shower them with money by allowing local government to seize the property of private individuals on the cheap. Done so that certain favored interested parties can build things like condo complexes and bowling alleys.

Sierra Madre is a town where the residents voted overwhelming to outlaw eminent domain. Chris Holden believes he has the right to not only re-impose it upon us from above, but do so in a way that gives the maximum possible rewards to his most prominent campaign donors. All backed up by the muscle of our pathological central state government.” In response to The Tattler’s comments, Assemblyman Holden told Sierra Madre Weekly: “I supported Senate Bill 1 (Steinberg), because of my belief in local decision making. The State took away these choices when redevelopment agencies were abolished, and Senate Bill 1 restores the ability for local leaders to address blight by supporting development in transit priority project areas, small walkable communities, and clean energy manufacturing sites. This bill provides for local choice. If there is no local support for the establishment of a Sustainable Communities Investment Authority, then this bill does not require one to be created.”

CSULA alumna wins Emmy statuette for outstanding casting California State University, Los Angeles’ awardwinning alumna, Carmen Cuba, won an Emmy in the category of casting for a miniseries, movie or a special for the HBO film, “Behind the Candelabra.” Cuba garnered her Emmy during the Primetime Creative Arts Emmys last weekend at the NOKIA Theatre L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles. The ceremony honors the people behind the shows in addition to talent like guest stars ahead of the televised 65th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony this Sunday, Sept. 22, on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. “Winning the Emmy for ‘Behind the Candelabra’ is just icing on what was a fantastic cake to begin with,” said Cuba, who received her bachelor’s degree in television, film and media studies (TVFM) at CSULA. “Part of why I think it was so well-received is that everyone involved loved the project so much and had so much fun putting it together that the viewers could feel it. It didn’t hurt that we were able to get such amazing ac-

tors to play everything from the biggest to the smallest of roles.” “Behind the Candelabra,” starring Michael Douglas, Matt Damon, Scott Bakula, Rob Lowe, and Debbie Reynolds, is a 2013 American drama film directed by Steven Soderbergh about the last 10 years in the life of pianist Liberace and the secret affair he had with the younger Scott Thorson. The film is based on Thorson’s memoir, Behind the Candelabra: My Life with Liberace (1988). Cuba established herself as an independent casting director through her work with controversial filmmaker Larry Clark on the films, Bully and Ken Park. She launched her career working with the legendary casting director Margery Simkin on such films as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Bowfinger, and Erin Brockovich. She also has been collaborating with Academy Award-winning Steven Soderbergh for over nine years on films, such as Magic Mike, Haywire, Contagion, and The Informant! Outside of her work with Soderbergh, Cuba cast

Now You See Me, Butter, and The Butterfly Effect as well as Dark Places and Hidden, both to be released next year. She also cast the television projects, Full Circle and Killing Kennedy. Currently, she is casting Open, a one-hour HBO drama series pilot, executive produced and directed by Ryan Murphy; The Knick, a Cinemax/HBO series executive produced and directed by Soderbergh; and an upcoming HBO comedy series, entitled Looking, executive produced and directed by Andrew Haigh. Cuba attributes CSULA Professor Robert Vianello’s “Business Practices in the Entertainment Industry” class for playing an important role in her storied career. The TVFM department at CSULA offers students an excellent education in media studies. It comprises an undergraduate program leading to a bachelor’s degree in television, film and media studies, with options in telecommunications and film and broadcast journalism. Both M.A. and M.F.A. degree programs are also available.

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.

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.

MAFA origins questioned Continued from page 11

Lapson has provided numerous documents supporting her entitlement. MAFA President Bill Bebee wrote to Lapson about her concerns : “The findings you provided painted one side of the picture and the findings that David Brubaker provided painted something different concerning how the art association was formed. I do believe and am convinced beyond any doubt based on press copies that you in fact held fine art exhibitions in the former Alvord Room at the library in the late 1950’s. That cannot be disputed. But how the first art festival came about is not so clear cut based on the findings I had before me. Since there were many unresolved issues on that fact, our group agreed that it was not our focus to dig any deeper. Our focus is to promote the arts as well as to provide mentoring for our young artists. However, if someone wants to do the necessary research I am happy to assist. I made a copy of the materials that David Brubaker sent us and I’ll forward that to you if you like. It is not and has

never been our intention to take anything from you; but if we are not in a position to truthfully give you or anyone else credit, it would not be

“Her vision (Lapson) was to enrich our lives by bringing fine arts to the community. In 1963, she initiated the first art gallery in Monrovia, in the Alvord Room of the Monrovia Public Library.” – MAFA Board Member

right to do so. I know this is not what you wanted to hear. Perhaps this was another reason

I could not reply sooner. But this matter is not going anywhere so someone else needs to pick up the task. I am sorry that we cannot do any more.” – Bill Bebee, MAFA President. Lisa Barrios from Paint and Play said “ it is very complicated that's why the board members have stayed away from this subject... none of us were there. No matter what we have tried to do in the past, someone surfaces and gets upset. As a volunteer organization, and as individuals, it's all we can do to bring art to the community through MUSD students and events to showcase our local artists. So far it has been a no win situation for MAFA. Going back this many years to check facts (that sway, depending on whom you ask) is not a task anyone can take on. We are all busy just trying to serve our community as per our mission statement.” This year marks the 50th anniversary of the formation of the local art group, originally known as the Monrovia Art Festival Association.

Fire in Angeles National Forest chars 250 acres Continued from page 1

6 p.m. Monday near San Gabriel Canyon Road and Sierra Madre Avenue. Los Angeles firefighters asked for the Canadian super-scoopers and choppers attack the fire. The sun was rapidly setting as the super scoopers made several drops but eventually had to return to base due to nightfall and heavy smoke. Unstable winds hampered firefighters initially but those died down about two hours after the blaze began.

Steep terrain was major hurdle, and helicopters dropped firefighters behind the blaze to cut lines and keep the flames from advancing too quickly according to early reports. Helicopters made water drops until midnight, when it became too dark to fly. Azusa Canyon and Highway 39 north of Foothill Boulevard remains closed traffic. No homes have been damaged and no one has been injured. More than 400 fire

personnel are on duty Tuesday battling the blaze. The cause of the blaze remains under investigation. Full containment of the fire is expected by Friday morning. No structures lost or injuries reported. Essential now, the crews are in mop –up mode, according to fire officials. The air support received combined with high humidity and low winds played a vital role in stopping the spread of this fire according to officials.

Wells Fargo is proud to sponsor Junípero Serra and the Legacies of the California Missions at the Huntington An international loan exhibition examines the life of the iconic priest and mission-era California. Coinciding with the 300th anniversary of Serra’s birth, this unprecedented exhibition features about 250 objects from The Huntington’s collections and those of 61 lenders in the United States, Mexico, and Spain. Through a display of rare documents, maps, artifacts, and works of art, “Junípero Serra” provides a sweeping examination of Serra’s origins on the Spanish island of Mallorca, where he was born; his years as a missionary in Mexico; and his work to establish a system of missions along the California coastline, beginning with Mission San Diego in 1769. The exhibition is on view in the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art and continues through January 6, 2014. Jules Tavernier, Carmel Mission on San Carlos Day, 1875.

Everything from soup to nuts at this year's Taste of Arcadia By Susan Motander A sellout crowd of 2000 attended Monday’s Taste of Arcadia at the Los Angeles County Arboretum. It was quite literally a soup to nuts experience: local restaurants supplied food as diverse as chili verde soup to spiced pecans with everything else imaginable. For those looking for liquid

refreshments the offerings were just as diverse from A to Z: Ale to Zinfandel. It was impossible leave hungry. There were awards for the best of all the delightful offerings. The Derby garnered “Best Dessert” for its bread puddings. The savory offerings of Nikki C

earned them top honors in that category. The award for the “Best Presentation” went to Arcadia Gardens with Santa Anita Race Track winning “Most Innovative.” It was Matt Denny’s with its Monday Night Football offering which took top honors with the award for the “Best Overall” presentation.

Monrovia man charged with threats Continued from page 1

of making false bomb threats – was arrested on Sept. 17 after allegedly calling in threats to several schools, a medical center, a shopping mall and a police agency – including Arcadia High School. The calls forced searches in several communities. 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 launched a joint investigation which resulted to the suspect’s arrest. Cortez is charged with six counts of making criminal threats and five counts of falsely reporting an emergency. The complaint also alleges Cortez has a prior conviction of falsely reporting a bomb to an agency or business. 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 p.m. on Sept. 17. Investigators continued the investigation, including serving a search warrant at his 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 AK47 and threatened to shoot people.

Pasadena Police Department Traffic Section will be conducting a DUI/ Drivers License Checkpoint on Friday, September 27, 2013, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 7:00PM and 3:00AM. The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving alcohol drop by an average of 20 percent when wellpublicized checkpoints are conducted often enough. Officers will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. Officers will also check drivers for proper licensing and will strive to delay motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension, and

insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes, and other expenses that can exceed $10,000. In 2011, over 10,000 people were killed nationally in motor vehicle traffic crashes that involved at least one driver or motorcycle rider with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher. In California, this deadly crime led to 774 deaths because someone failed to designate a sober driver. “Over the course of the past three years, DUI collisions have claimed 5 lives and resulted in 65 injury crashes harming 85 of our friends and neighbors,” said Pasadena Police Chief Phil Sanchez. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies, while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent. Based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests,

DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public. “DUI Checkpoints have been an essential part of the phenomenal reduction in DUI deaths that we witnessed since 2006 in California,” said Christopher J. Murphy, Director of the Office of Traffic Safety. “But since the tragedy of DUI accounts for nearly one third of traffic fatalities, Pasadena needs the high visibility enforcement and public awareness that checkpoints provide.” Funding for this checkpoint is provided to Pasadena Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to continue to work together to bring an end to these tragedies. If you see a Drunk Driver – Call 9-1-1.

Employment training panel approves over $6.9M to train California workers The State of California’s Employment Training Panel approved 32 contracts worth over $6.9M in job training funds at its regularly held public meeting today. Proposals included small business and smaller scale projects, under $100,000 each, approved by Panel Chair, Barry Broad and Chief Deputy Director, Jill McAloon through the Panel’s delegation order process. Training proposals included both single employer contracts as well as multiple employer contracts and were representative of various industry sectors throughout the state. The projects approved also included a significant number of new workers related to new and expanding facilities in California. One such project, new to the ETP program, is Ecologic Brands Inc. (Ecologic), a small business headquartered in Oakland, California. Founded in 2008, Ecologic is an award-winning designer and manufacturer of sustainable packaging solutions. Recognized for making America’s first paper bottle, which consists of a compostable outer shell made with 100% recycled cardboard and newspaper, Ecologic is dedicated to offering consumers a choice beyond plastic. Throughout the product lifecycle Ecologic bottles generate 59 percent less solid waste, 37 percent fewer carbon dioxide emissions, consume 48 percent less energy than

equivalent plastic bottles, and are 100% recyclable. Consumer demand for sustainable packaging continues to grow, and in July, Ecologic opened its first production facility in the United States, a 60,000 square-foot facility in Manteca, California. In a region which has traditionally suffered from high unemployment, Ecologic’s recent business expansion has translated into the creation of new jobs. To date, 40 new employees have been hired at the new plant, where the company plans to produce 6 million bottles per year. With a goal of producing 60 million bottles per year, the plant has capacity for 100 new jobs and the potential for continued job creation is likely. The Employment Training Panel approved employment training funds in the amount of $73,840, to assist Ecologic in training both new and incumbent workers in the operation of new manufacturing equipment, as well as business and computer skills, and continuous improvement. All training will be provided at the Manteca manufacturing facility and at Ecologic’s offices in Oakland. “Ecologic is excited to partner with the Employment Training Panel in funding training for our newly expanded workforce,” said Julie Corbett, Founder & CEO of Ecologic. “ETP support is critical in our continu-

ous development of a highly-skilled workforce that’s able to respond to market demand with ever improving efficiency and increased customer satisfaction.” ETP is a business and labor supported state agency that assists employers in strengthening their competitive edge in the economy by providing funds to partially off-set the costs of necessary job skills training. California’s ETP is a performancebased program, providing funds for trainees who successfully complete training and are retained in goodpaying jobs at or above a required wage base, for at least 90 days. The program, funded by the Employment Training Tax paid by California employers, helps businesses threatened by outof-state and international competition. The Panel also serves employers under its Special Employment Training Program, funding projects designed to improve skills and employment security of frontline workers in projects that do not meet standard employer/trainee eligibility requirements. Since its inception in 1983, the ETP program has provided approximately $1.25 billion to train over 800,000 workers for more than 78,000 California companies. Employers match training funds awarded by ETP, making these projects true public-private partnerships.

Rep. Chu kicks off 10th Annual Domestic Violence Collection Drive Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27) was joined Monday by Congresswoman Grace Napolitano (CA-32) to launch the 10th annual month-long Domestic Violence Collection Drive. “Domestic violence touches every community, impacting people of all ethnicities and walks of life. As a State Assemblywoman in 2003, I joined forces with Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park to hold these Domestic Violence Awareness Collection Drives, and for ten years we have been helping victims as they overcome their physical and emotional scars.

I’m excited to welcome Congresswoman Napolitano to our partnership this year. Together, we will make this year our most successful drive yet.” Throughout her time in public service, Congresswoman Chu has defended and advocated on behalf of domestic violence survivors. In the California State Assembly, she sponsored legislation protecting the assets of domestic violence survivors after a woman in her district was forced to provide half of her retirement benefits to her abusive husband when she divorced him. In Congress, she has worked

to reauthorize and fully fund the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). She has also pushed to expand VAWA protections for underserved victims of domestic violence, including immigrants, Native Americans and LGBT victims. Chu’s efforts are driven by the fact that domestic violence presents a significant threat to the American people. Sixteen people fell victim to domestic violence every minute in 2010. That amounts to 2.1 million Americans who are physically assaulted by an intimate partner every year.

First group of finalists unveiled for Rose Bowl game all-century class Patty Driscoll, George Halas and Neil Snow have been nominated as finalists for the Rose Bowl Game All-Century Class as representatives from the 1900’s and 1910’s. The candidates, as voted by an esteemed panel from the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), are the first of a series of names who will be unveiled each Sunday throughout the remainder of the college football regular season. In commemoration of the 100th Rose Bowl Game, the All-Century Class will highlight and honor great players and coaches throughout the history of The Granddaddy of Them All. A closer look at the finalists from the 1900’s and 1910’s: Nationally respected for his play as quarterback for Northwestern and considered one of the outstanding backs in the early history of the game, Patty Driscoll excelled for the

Great Lakes Navy team. Completing 4 of 8 passes for 77 yards, Driscoll lead Great Lakes Navy to a 17-0 victory over the Mare Island Marines in 1919. Driscoll returned punts for a total of 115 yards and punted six times for an average of 43.3 yards (including punts of 50 and 60 yards.) He is also noted for a drop-kicked field goal from the 30-yard line. Long before the nickname “Papa Bear,” George Halas showcased his talents in the 1919 Rose Bowl Game. A three sport collegiate athlete at Illinois, Halas became a member of the Great Lakes Navy squad during a time college football teams were depleted due to World War I. In addition to a 45-yard touchdown reception against the Mare Island Marines, Halas returned an interception 77 yards to the Mare Island 3-yard line. For his performance, Halas was named Player of the Game. The first touchdown in

Rose Bowl Game history was scored by Neil Snow, a running back for the powerhouse Michigan squad that defeated Stanford 49-0, in the first Rose Bowl Game on January 1, 1902. That touchdown was the first of five for Snow, a Rose Bowl Game record that has never been broken. Snow’s five five-point touchdowns also gave him the record for the most points scored in a Rose Bowl Game. He was inducted into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame in 1990. The FWAA voting committee will select one Rose Bowl Game representative from each decade to comprise the All-Century Class. In addition, one overall player and one overall coach will be highlighted at a press conference on Selection Sunday, which will take place on December 8, 2013, in Pasadena.

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.

Education Center will house classrooms for educational programming such as art, crafts, lectures, children’s and senior activities, as well as other similar functions. The building will provide the space needed to accommodate the demand for current activities and it will also allow for future expansion of Museum and recreation programming. The Arcadia Museum Education Center is a joint effort of the City of Arcadia and the Arcadia Historical Museum Foundation. The budget for the building is $877,339 with $500,000 of that being donated by the Foundation. The City’s portion of the

funding is coming from Park and Recreation Impact Fees, which can be used only for park and recreation capacity enhancements. Arcadia Weekly’s Social columnist Floretta Lauber has been the driving force behind this project for many, many years. “I am thrilled to see this project come to fruition,” said Lauber, President of the Arcadia Historical Museum Foundation. “Foundation members have worked hard for several years in order to make a substantial financial contribution to the City so that this project can move forward. We are very excited that everything is in place

and construction is ready to begin.” Mayor Mickey Segal commented: “The Museum Education Center will be a wonderful asset to our community and will open up many possibilities for the continued offering of educational and leisure-time activities. The City Council is especially thankful to the Arcadia Historical Museum Foundation for their work on this project and for their financial contribution.” With design and construction estimated to take eight months, the Museum Education Center should be ready to open by May 2014.

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.

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.
