BY TERRY MILLER With a very extraordinary 25 year anniversary gig coming up next month for Snotty Scotty and the Hankies (to commemorate their debut album on Doo Dah records in 1988 ), we asked some

prominent community members what they thought of the close to legendary status of the celebrated Pasadena band that has been around longer than Mayor Bogaard has had held his seat in the grand Palacial office at city hall. This week’s contributor

Two Arcadia women robbed at knifepoint early Monday On October 14, 2013, at about 3:10 AM, Arcadia Police responded to a residence in the 200 block of El Dorado Street on the report of a robbery that had occurred. Upon arrival, officers contacted two women who had just returned home. After their car was parked in the garage, they were confronted by two suspects. One suspect held a knife and the second suspect stole a purse from inside the vehicle. Both suspects then ran from the garage to a gold colored, four-door, Honda Accord. The suspects’ vehicle was driven eastbound on El Dorado Street. The suspect who held the knife was described as a male African-American, 25-35 years old, 5’07”

Dorothy's Place The perfect diet

By Dorothy Denne I received the following story in my e-mails. It did say to pass it on. I don't know the original author but I'm sure I would like him. I think you will too. "Yesterday I was at the Villages Publix buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Owen the wonder dog, and was in the check-out

line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. What, did she think I had an elephant? So because I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse, I told her that no, I didn't have a dog. I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms. I told her that it was essentially a "Perfect Diet" and the way it works is to load your pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply

eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete, (certified), so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.) Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I had stopped to pee on a fire hydrant and a car hit me. I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard. Publix won't let me shop there anymore." Don't you love the guy?

Letter to the Editor Send your letters to tmiller@beaconmedianews.com Dear Editor Wanted to report an injustice in Temple City. These are hard times, but the local government there has been ticketing cars who pull forward (into the subsequent free spot); they call it back in parking. They even ticket cars parked in shopping centers

like the one at Rosemead & Las Tunas. Even the storeowners here are helpless. At most of the entrances to the shopping center, they have signs posted (in tiny print), they're only at the entrances, and not legible from a car as you enter. Desperate times for easy cash, I guess... Paul Lance

Attitude is more important than fact! The Sierra Madre City Council meeting on October 8, 2013 was another revelation into the attitude of the way of the thinking at City Hall. At the beginning, the City Attorney gave her report of the closed doorcouncil meeting and this was followed by the approval of the Warrants of the month. Great care was given to make sure the people are not informed of the local problems or the spending of the taxpayers' monies. The Public Works Director gave his report and complimented the people on their water conservation. He also said the City has not purchased any water as yet, but would begin the next day. Of course, the next day it rained and nothing was said about repairing the diversion dam in the wash so that the rain water could be diverted into the settling basins. So we missed this opportunity. Will the dam be fixed in time for future rain? Nothing was said about the loss of revenue due to the conservation kick that the city is on. Then the discussion centered on what to do with the surplus money from the 2012 budget. They decided to re-roof the City Hall and Police and Fire roofs and to repaint the exterior of the City Library. No-one asked why these roofs were not done along with the wind damages in 2011, which repairs were paid for from

the insurance claims. Neither was any question raised as to why the Library painting was neglected for so long that the paint was pealing and dry rot is suspected because of neglect. Then came the discussion of raising all of the City's fees. It was stated that any new resident should pay the increased fees so that they might benefit from the City services that the other 99% of the people have paid for. They apparently have lost sight of the fact that the services go with the land and has been paid for as long as the property has been paying taxes. The City has lost sight of the fact that people move here because this City is different than other cities. Guess the government should take down the welcome sign and put up the not welcome sign. Is there any wonder why the population has gone down over 500 residents? This was followed about the need to financially reward any employee that comes up with any money saving idea and pay out monthly car allowances. Will any employee suggest a saving idea that will reveal that his/ her superior made wrong decisions in the first place? Of course not! Further, it was mentioned that the justification for these rewards is because this City's pay scale is less than surrounding cities. Is there any great rush of employees

quitting to go elsewhere? If some of them would leave then maybe we could reduce the size of the government which is four times the size that it was when they moved into the City Hall and Police and Fire Station. Then came the discussion of gray water installations and peoples' homes. This would require a city permit and regulations by the officials and if inspection by the City found that the homeowner did not do the work according to the City regulation, then the homeowner would have to pay a fine. Anyone care to get involved in this one? Finally, the discussion moved to the subject of volunteers and that the people were not coming forward as they used to when the City was known as a City of Volunteers. They talked about registering the person on line, and a background check, and then a City employee would assign the volunteer to a job that the City wanted done. They just don't know how to let go of the rules and regulations, and controls that City Hall stipulates. Is there any wonder why nobody wants to volunteer? Will anyone in the City tell the rest of them what they are doing wrong and how they need to change their attitude? Attitude is the most important necessity to reach the correct solution.

Governor signs bill giving military personnel a tax break – AB 143 Members of the Armed Forces and National Guard will get a break on state use tax when they are transferred to California under Assemblymember Chris Holden’s bill signed today by Governor Brown. “It just doesn’t seem fair to tax active duty military personnel when they are already making so many sacrifices,” explained Assemblymember Holden (D-Pasadena). “It’s the right thing to do to relieve some of the tax burden for our service men and women who are already sacrificing so much for their country.”

AB 143, the Military Use Tax Exemption, would eliminate a type of sales tax known as use tax, on personal property purchased by an active duty military member or National Guard member who has been transferred into the state. Here’s how it works: A use tax is levied on items purchased out-of-state for use in California. If you are on active duty in Texas and buy a computer or furniture, then three months later you are transferred to a base in California, you would be required to pay a “use tax”.

Under AB 143, that tax would be waived. California is home to 13% of the more than one million active duty members of the armed forces stationed in the U.S. and has enjoyed widespread support from veterans organizations across the state: American Legion, California Association of County Veterans Service Officers, California State Commanders Veterans Council, Veterans Democratic Club of Sacramento County, VFW of the United States – California, Vietnam Veterans of America.

The Arcadia Unified School District will host a special Board of Education meeting on Oct. 22 to discuss Common Core, give the community the opportunity to review new instructional materials and learn more about the transition. This is because rather than hiring outside consultants, the district is using a team of talented educators from within to make the crucial transition to the new Common Core State Standards. Over the next two years, the state is allocating funding to assist districts in making the change to the standards, which align curricula across 46 states and the District of Columbia. The district is receiving $1.9 million over 2013-14 and 2014-15 to proceed with its implementation of the Common Core. “The idea was to use the funding to identify and support teachers who could serve as mentors and coach-

Foster Farms Salmonella outbreak causes serious concern

CDC cites 278 cases - 213 cases from California CDC is collaborating with public health and agriculture officials in many states and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS) to investigate a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Heidelberg infections. Public health investigators are using DNA “fingerprints” of Salmonella bacteria obtained through diagnostic testing with pulsedfield gel electrophoresis, or PFGE, to identify cases of illness that may be part of this outbreak. They are using data from PulseNet, the national subtyping network made up of state and local public health laboratories and federal food regulatory laboratories that performs molecular surveillance of foodborne infections. Seven strains of Salmonella Heidelberg bacteria have been identified as being linked to this outbreak. Four of these strains are rarely reported to PulseNet. The other three strains are more common, with several ill persons infected with each strain reported to CDC monthly. The DNA fingerprints of the Salmonella Heidelberg bacteria associated with the current outbreak include the strain that was

As of October 7, 2013, a total of 278 individuals infected with the outbreak strains of Salmonella Heidelberg have been reported from 17 states. Most of the ill persons (77%) have been reported from California. The number of ill persons identified in each state is as follows: Alaska (2), Arkansas (1), Arizona (11), California (213), Colorado (4), Connecticut (1), Florida (1), Hawaii (1), Idaho (2), Michigan (2), North Carolina (1), Nevada (8), Oregon (8), Texas (5), Utah (2), Washington (15) and Wisconsin (1). Among 274 persons for

whom information is available, illness onset dates range from March 1 to September 24, 2013. Ill persons range in age from 1 year to 93 years, with a median age of 20 years. Fifty-one percent of ill persons are male. Among 183 persons with available information, 76 (42%) reported being hospitalized. No deaths have been reported. Illnesses that occurred after September 1, 2013 might not be reported yet due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported. This takes an average of 2 to 3 weeks. For more details, please see Salmonella Outbreak Investigations: Timeline for Reporting Cases.

On Sunday, October 20 CSW and volunteers from various organizations will be present at the Montrose Harvest Market and in front of Massage Envy on Brand Blvd. from 9:00am – 2:00 pm and at the Glendale Galleria from 12:00 - 4:00 pm to pass out purple ribbons, literature

(brochures, flyers, etc.) from various organizations that provide services to women and their families, and Women & Families Resource Guides created by the CSW with contact information for agencies providing services to women in our community. DVAM evolved from the “Day of Unity” in October 1981, conceived by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became an entire week devoted to a range of activities conducted at the local, state, and national levels. In October 1987, the first DVAM was observed. That same year marks the initiation of the first national domestic violence tollfree hotline. The Glendale YWCA sponsors a 24-hour hotline at (818) 242-1106.

As part of El Monte's 19th annual Harvest Festival and Children's Day Parade event, the contest is open only to El Monte residents, city employees and children attending a school in the city. Cash prizes, sponsored by El Monte Mayor Pro Tem Norma Macias and City Councilman Juventino “J” Gomez, will be awarded to the top three best-tasting apple pies submitted for the contest. "This is such a great family-friendly event that

Community Affairs Committee members will be volunteering to collect baked apple pie entries and have the enjoyable undertaking of judging the contest. Apple pies will be collected at the Apple Pie Booth in front of the El Monte Community Center, 3130 Tyler Ave., between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. on the day of the Harvest Festival. “I know there are so many fantastic bakers here in El Monte so it will be a tough competition,” said Gomez. Winners will be announced at the Harvest Festival at noon and winners must be present. Participants

must submit a registration slip along with their homemade apple pie. Apple pies will be judged based on taste and appearance and only edible items may be placed in or on the pie. Entries must be homemade and placed on a non-returnable baking tin or dish.

Pasadena Christian School educators honor Hispanic Heritage by exemplifying cultural pride and American dream

Monica (Perez) Bucknam Art Educator, Pasadena Christian Preschool Dr. Steven Gray Superintendent, Pasadena Christian School Photo Credit: Pasadena Christian School Media Relations

Whether serving as superintendent, or encouraging students to preserve their cultural traditions through art, Dr. Steven Gray and Monica (Perez) Bucknam are making a difference in their respective roles at Pasadena Christian School (PCS) and its preschool as professionals, and Hispanics. Although their personal stories are unique, they share common themes; education and cultural pride. The Hispanic landscape continues to evolve daily as persons from different cultures come together. Dr. Steven Gray, who is of both Mexican and Scottish/ English heritage, personifies this trend. As the son of a single mother (Lupe) who is a first generation MexicanAmerican, Dr. Gray strongly identifies with his Hispanic roots. Dr. Gray spent his youth immersed in his culture through the eyes of his grandmother (Delfina) who immigrated along with her husband to the United States in the 1920’s. Since she didn’t speak English,

Dr. Gray learned how to speak some Spanish in order to communicate with her. Through these “kitchen table” conversations, he learned about life in Mexico, its people, and the value of hard work. He also learned about the romantic tale of how his grandmother was recued from Mexican bandits as a young girl. The brave member of the posse who saved her from captivity ultimately became Dr. Gray’s grandfather (Gubencio). As the only one of ten siblings to complete high school, Dr. Gray’s mother understood the value of education as well. It was his mother’s example, and aspirations for a better life, that inspired Gray to pursue a career as an educator. A California State Community Opportunity Grant, which provided Dr. Gray with a full scholarship to the school of his choice, helped realize his dreams of a higher education. Originally born Monica Ofelia Perez, Bucknam is a first generation MexicanAmerican who grew up with

the rich cultural traditions of her parent’s homeland. From speaking Spanish as her first language, to cooking authentic recipes handed down from her grandmother, Mexico and the bonds of family are still part of who she is today. A native of City Terrace in East Los Angeles, Bucknam considers herself privileged to carry generations of Mexican values, while also being American. Bucknam’s family relocated to Alhambra during her early childhood years where she quickly assimilated and became English-fluent by second grade. Living just a few blocks away from El Sereno allowed Bucknam and her family to further preserve their heritage. Having access to Mexican markets, and being surrounded by other native Spanish speakers, encouraged Bucknam to find balance between her native roots and an American lifestyle. Traditional Mexican arts were also vital to her upbringing. She spent several years attending art, ballet folklorico dance, music, and ceramics classes at Plaza de la Raza, a Mexican cultural arts center situated in the heart of East Los Angeles. Eventually, she would return as an “alumni” to teach drawing and painting classes for four years. “As an art educator, I believe it’s important to recognize the valuable emotional and developmental growth that is fostered in children by creating visual art, while appreciating it’s aesthetic

Bill honoring civil rights leader Cesar E. Chavez signed into law Assemblymember Roger Hernandez (D-West Covina) announced that AB 34 was signed into law by the Governor Thursday. AB 34 establishes Nuestra Señora Reina de La Paz (La Paz) in Kern County as a state historic landmark. La Paz is the formal home and burial site of Civil Rights Leader Cesar E. Chavez. “I thank the Governor for his commitment in honoring one of California’s heroes. California should have been at the forefront of designating La Paz. Today, AB 34 properly honors the

work of a Latino leader who pushed for justice, dignity and job protection for farm workers,” stated Hernández. Last year, on October 8, 2012 President Obama declared La Paz a National Historic Landmark. The designation is the first to honor a Latino since the 1700s. La Paz covers 187 acres of eastern Kern County, California. The site is significant as the headquarters of the United Farm Workers of America (UFW). From the site, Cesar E. Chavez met with public officials,

labor leaders, community organizations and industry representatives as a voice for the disenfranchised and the less fortunate. “I am proud La Paz will be joining a number of other historical landmarks in this state. The late Cesar E. Chavez played a crucial role during the Civil Rights Era for which this state is very grateful. This designation as a state historic landmark is long over-due to this great Civil Rights Leader, the state, and especially to his family” concluded Hernández.

qualities,” stated Monica (Perez) Bucknam. “As a Latina, I also think it’s important to teach students to celebrate their own heritage through art- and the beauty of other cultures around the world. Embracing all nationalities and cultures is art in itself.” Typically, Bucknam focuses on art from cultures around the world, instruments and seasonal changes while teaching her budding young artists at Pasadena Christian Preschool. From traditional mariachi music and flamenco, to French, Celtic and African rhythms, Bucknam also believes in the educational value of world music. As one of her best practices, Bucknam aims to incorporate traditional music specific to the art and culture she is teaching as part of the curriculum to heighten the experience. During Hispanic Heritage Month, Bucknam is teaching her students about legendary Mexican painter Diego Rivera. Over the past 15 years, she has also worked as an

award-winning conceptual art director for the film and television industry. Among the entertainment entities she has collaborated with

include HBO, CBS, USA Networks, Disney Studios, Universal, Producer Eduardo Sanchez, and currently, DreamWorks.

San Gabriel Mission celebrates Native American Past In an effort to celebrate California’s indigenous history, riders came on horseback to the San Gabriel Mission on Oct. 9 to discuss the state’s Native American past, present and future. The riders are visiting all 21 missions in the California system. Here in San Gabriel they were greeted by representatives of the Gabrielino Band of Mission Indians, Kizh Nation. Christina Swindall, secretary for the Gabrielino Band of Mission Indians, Kizh Nation, said she is very pleased the history of her tribe and of other tribes will be discussed. “What they’re doing is they go to each mission and give the mission itself – and the local native community – the opportunity to discuss with them whatever they’d like to,” Swindall said. “What we’ve decided to focus on from the Native American aspect is our history, what about our history has been told incorrectly and what has been omitted completely.”

By Shel Segal Swindall said there is one very common reference to her tribe that is completely erroneous. “One of the misconceptions we’re fighting against is the use of the word ‘Tongva,’” she said. “Many people automatically associate our tribe with that name. It became associated with our tribe in the 1990s and it spread like wildfire. Through our oral history we are not familiar with that word at all.” Swindall said that according to an ethnographer who was working in the early 1900s, “Tongva” is a place where acorns are ground and not neighboring tribes knew us anything to do with the as well.” tribe.

the coast of California going to one mission at a time. They visited the northern missions last year and are coming to the southern missions this year. “They’re literally taking the historic trails all the way down through the missions, a total of 600 missions,” Swindall said. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com).

Recent donations to the Friends of the Sierra Madre Library Book Sale Committee have contained some very special books including a signed novel by the late Tom Clancy. These exceptional books will be featured in a Silent Auction to be held in the Sierra Madre Public Library, 440 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre from Friday, November 1, 2013 through Monday, November 25, 2013. The books will be on display in the display case in the library’s main room. To inspect the books more closely, visit the library every Saturday in November from 1-2 PM. Bidding sheets and rules will be available in a notebook located on the

library’s checkout counter. Each of the books for sale at the auction will be numbered and will have a corresponding numbered bid sheet in the notebook. Bidders are asked to write their bid amounts and a contact telephone number on the appropriate bid sheet. Bidding will close promptly at 8 PM on November 25. Winning bidders will be notified by telephone the next day and will then be able to pick up their books at the library. Proceeds from the Silent Auction will benefit the Sierra Madre Library’s programs, services, and acquisitions. For more information, visit our website at www. sierramadrelibraryfriends. org.

YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley celebrates 11th Annual Women for Racial Justice Breakfast

Construction is underway to build railroad crossing at Baldwin Ave, El Monte Construction of a grade separation at Baldwin Avenue is underway, with the project in early stages of construction, including mass excavation of the site. Construction of the Baldwin Avenue roadway underpass began in May 2013 and is estimated to take 24 months to complete. Baldwin Avenue will remain closed between Rose and Gidley streets until the reopening; Temple City Boulevard and Arden Drive can be used as alternatives. Formerly a congested railroad/street crossing, the project will eliminate the risk of dangerous crossing collisions and delays for emergency responders. “We have had too many

accidents and near-misses at this intersection to keep the current configuration any longer,” said El Monte Mayor Pro Tem Norma Macias, who serves as Chair of the Alameda CorridorEast (ACE) Construction Authority, the agency overseeing the project. “Improving this intersection has been a priority for our City and will ultimately reduce traffic congestion in the area, create new jobs and reduce air pollution. I’m thrilled to see that progress has already been made.” Once completed, the project will reduce vehicle emissions from idling automobiles and eliminate noisy train horns and gate alarms. The total investment

is estimated at $76.1 million, paid for from federal, state and county funds. Although a partner with ACE in the project, no City of El Monte funds were required for the project. Approximately 1,300 full-time equivalent jobs will be created due to this project. The project is part of a major grade separation program along the ACE Trade Corridor, which accommodates about 60 percent of the containers moved from the nation’s busiest container ports in the San Pedro Bay to the rest of the country via the region’s rail network. For more information about the project, please call (888) ACE-1426 or visit www.theaceproject.org.

Are you using knowledge, or is knowledge using you? Many of those who live near the U.S.-Mexico border and work in the United States know the “crossing” is only the thing that divides these two countries. However, it is still two different worlds. And in a way, its people live two different lives, one in Tijuana and one in San Diego. This is the case of the personal life of Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. Who wrote, "The Five Levels of Attachment", a book in which a small part is about the attachments we have with people we know and how we often distort those attachments. Ruiz comes from a family of Toltec descent, and has written about its culture. With the help and inspiration of his family and especially of his children it took him four years to write the book. His grandmother was a healer in the neighborhood and his father, Don Miguel Ruiz, is

also an author. “I began my apprenticeship into my family’s tradition in San Diego, California, when I was 14- years old. My 79-year-old grandmother, Madre Sarita, was my teacher and the spiritual head of our family. She was a curandera, a faith healer who helped people in her small temple in Barrio Logan, a neighborhood in San Diego, with the power of her faith in God and love. Since my father was a medical doctor, the juxtaposition of the two forms of healing allowed me to see our tradition through differing points of view” said Ruiz. Simply stated, Ruiz found that how we go about life, what we make of our lives, is imposed on us by those we know and love. “Think about your set of attached beliefs as a unique

melody repeating itself in your mind. In a way, we are constantly trying to force our melody — the one we have become accustomed to hearing — onto other melodies, without realizing that often the melody is not our own, and perhaps it’s not even the one we want to be playing,” said Ruiz. “Whatever we become attached to can begin to shape our future experiences and limit our perception of what exists outside our vocabulary. Like blinders on a horse, our attached beliefs limit our vision, and this in turn limits our perceived direction in life. The stronger our level of attachment, the less we can see. Ruiz will be speaking at The Santa Anita Church, Friday, Nov.1, at 7 p.m. Admission is $45. For reservations contact Amalia at (626) 446-8206.

‘Goofy Asian’ to perform in Arcadia's inaugural comic battle By Dereck Arreguin Fade In. Picture this. The lights are beaming you in the face. You're in a silent room and all you see as you peer into the darkness in front of you, are dark motionless silhouettes staring back at you, judging you. It's not till take your first step and edge closer to the mic that you realize how dry your throat really is, accompanied by your slightly chapped lips and nervous twitch. You've been licking them impatiently all day. Meanwhile the butterflies are nearly fluttering out of your body. And that's where your night begins on stage, and now there's no turning back! That’s exactly where a goofy, somewhat shy Eli Nicolas found himself nearly 5 years ago in front of a crowd of nearly 40 people. It was his first attempt in his chosen career path that would inevitably have him facing six other talented comics only a few weeks away; all fighting for the crown of Arcadia's first Comic Battle. Encouraged by his support group comprise of mainly friends and family, Eli has battled through the trenches that typically beginner’s face. But later this month, he'll grace the

taught him about the world of stand-up comedy. On a typical Comic Battle Event, three individuals are selected at random from the crowd to function as the collective voice that ultimately decides the winner. They're told to take everything into account from the crowd reaction, deliverability of jokes and most importantly stage appearance. That's why later this month, Eli will have his chance to prove he belongs on the stage against some of the best up and coming comics in the area. But will he be crowned the champion? As an audience member, only you get to decide! Make sure to be there and watch The Comic Battle LIVE on Monday October 29th at 7:00pm in the Dave and Buster's showroom.

stage as an underdog at the Dave and Buster's Comic Battle located inside the Westfield Mall. When I had a chance to sit down and ask Eli about hits biggest struggles as an upcoming comic, his reply was simple and thought out. He said, "Generating new material… learning the joke structure and getting past the stage fright." Sounding confident and focused, Eli said he was ready for the next step in his career and to realizing his dream of becoming a house hold name in the Asian community. Every year, thousands of hungry comics dream of the spotlight, but rarely do they ever get a chance to grasp it or even compete to be recognized and crowned for all their dedication and hard work. Let no-one tell you differently, it takes years of hard work and dedication to your craft, facing all the moments when your punch-line doesn't deliver and your whole set gets thrown out the window when still having 10 minutes left on stage. Fortunately and maybe unfortunately, Eli will only have seven minutes to show the judges and audience what five years has

for the Monrovia Police Department. The grant will assist in efforts to deal with traffic safety problems and to reduce the number of persons killed and injured in traffic collisions. While traffic deaths from all causes declined by nearly 39 percent between 2006 and 2010 in California, they rose by 2.6 percent in 2011. State and federal officials anticipate that figures will show another rise for 2012. DUI deaths remain the largest sector, at nearly 30 percent of traffic fatalities. Recent trends show increases in two new categories – distracted driving and drug-impaired driving. Activities that the grant will fund include: • S p e c i a l i z e d DUI and drugged

driving training such as Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST), Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE), and Drug Recognition Evaluator (DRE). • DUI Saturation Patrols • Distracted driving enforcement • Seat belt and child safety seat enforcement • Speed, red light and stop sign enforcement • Warrant service operations targeting multiple DUI offenders • C o m p i l a t i o n of DUI “Hot Sheets,” identifying worst-of-theworst DUI offenders Funding for this program is from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

MAFA celebrates 50th anniversary It was back and better than ever. After skipping last year’s event because of the economy, Monrovia Association of Fine Arts hosted the 50th anniversary of its art festival on Saturday and Sunday at Monrovia Library Park. The festival featured artwork, music and food for all those in attendance at the twoday event. Bill Beebe, president of the association, said while the event is scaled down, it should be growing in coming years. “It’s been as much as 120 booths,” Beebe said. “But we had the Great Recession, so artists are being a little more selective on the venues they go to. This year we have 60, which I think is great. Last year, because of the problems with the economy we didn’t have a show. We’re coming back.” He added art was everywhere at the park. “We’re filling the park with art,” he said. “We have lots of entertainment from the stage. We have local, independent entertainers. We’re

By Shel Segal just having fun. We have a silent auction booth. Artists have donated artwork to the organization. We auctioned it off during the day and the funds are going to go to fund art programs at local schools.” Lisa Barrios, association member and owner of Paint and Play on Myrtle Avenue, said there was quite a mix of artists at the show. “Many artists from the San Gabriel Valley and from quite a distance have come to support and promote the arts in Monrovia,” Barrios said. Covina resident Bill Hyatt was the festival’s featured artist. Hyatt said he works exclusively with metal. “Whatever I can get out of the metal I kind of go with,” Hyatt said. “Southwest themes come up quite a bit in my work. Skulls, cactus, crosses. Right now I’m starting a new piece. It’s a horsehead using metal or scrap metal.” Hyatt, who lived in Duarte for 25 years before moving to Covina, said one of his works can take anywhere from a week to three months to create. He added his pieces are

priced between $100 and $3,000. Other pieces he has depict buffaloes and marlins or “just about anything.” In addition, Hyatt said scrap metal is the best kind of metal for which to work. “It works best because it gives you different colors, more than finished material,” he said. “I’ve learned to work with the torch to enhance whatever I’m working with.” To see some of Hyatt’s works, log onto www.hyattgallery.com (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

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

Why Classic?

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

Compliance through great patient care

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

Our CPAP Circle of Care® program

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

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

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

Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance

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

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

Skeptical?

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

Not currently screening for Sleep Apnea?

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

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

Center for Hispanic Leadership forum in Duarte slated for Dec. 2 On the heels of Univision’s recent Education Town Hall at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), in which Center for Hispanic Leadership (CHL) Founder/ CEO, Glenn Llopis, was a featured expert on the future business climate and the need for Hispanics in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers, CHL has opened the online registration for the much-anticipated event. According to a recent article in Hispanic Network Magazine, in order for the United States to remain globally competitive in STEM, the country will need to train 1 million STEM professionals over the next 10 years. Currently, educational institutions are tackling this situation and trying to discern why STEM careers are not drawing more Hispanics and best practices to remedy this issue. “In order to attract Hispanics to STEM careers, we need to develop more culturallyrelevant training,” explains, Llopis, who also writes for Forbes, the Harvard Business Review, and the Huffington Post, “We need to show Hispanics how these vocations are a natural fit with their heritage and values.” As the numbers of Hispanics continue to increase, more Hispanic

leaders and role models in all industries are needed, but particularly in healthcare for two major reasons: 1) professional healthcare is not necessarily something Hispanics were raised with or see the value in, and therefore they may not seek it out; and 2) the urgency is greater in this industry because the lack of research and outreach to the community directly affects their health and wellbeing. “According to a UCLA study, only five percent of licensed doctors in California are Latino in a state that is nearly 40 percent Hispanic, which demonstrates a severe shortage of primary care physicians who have both the language and cultural connections to care for Hispanic patients,” says Llopis, “It's clear that the conversation around the need to build a more prominent Hispanic workforce in the healthcare industry is escalating in relevancy.” With the goal of developing solutions to elevate the opportunities in the healthcare and biomedical professional fields for Hispanics and leveraging government, educational, business, and professional organizations as well as community partners throughout the San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles county, the two-

hour thought-leadership event will feature an interactive discussion between a panel of senior leaders in the healthcare industry and attendees. After the conversation, the event will feature a Knowledge Exchange session in which attendees can discuss specific topics such as educational awareness, recruitment, mentoring, networking, career management, and professional development with subject matter experts, who will be stationed at booths. “Our aim is to turn the dial up from awareness building to solution development,” says Marisa Salcines, CHL Director of Business Development and Media Relations. “We are at a critical juncture in the future of healthcare in this country in which Hispanics have the opportunity to change the course of history for the betterment of all communities.” For more information about the event and to register, please visit: Strengthening the Hispanic Pipeline in Healthcare and Biomedical Fields or email Marisa Salcines at marisa@ centerforhispanicleadership. com or call 678-520-6429.

Snotty Scotty and the Hankies 'Living Legends' Continued from page 1

Where do you think the Hankies will be in the next 25 years? -Unfortunately, theyand we-may be pushing up daisies - reminiscing over the good ol' days (daze) at one of God's dives (I presume we'll be going north-not the other way)...EXCEPT, Snotty Scotty will still be among the living, because he's part-pickled and part-super human...He'll be a little lost wondering where his bandmates are as he leads the 2038 Pasadena Doo Dah Parade!!!!! Did they influence you? -They definitely influenced me on two levels...I wouldn't have drank all that beer for one (if I had a nickel for every pint...) and on a serious note they inspired me to keep it real (I hate being serious, especially about the Hankies) Do you have a favorite 'Hankie' -Haha, lest I suffer the wrath of any one of them I will say that I like each Hankie in their own way... but I love them in their totality...so they prove the

theory that the sum is greater than its parts!! Why Do you think their influence on Pasadena is legendary (if it is) -It is legendary...Their influence is so great because they're entirely unique...This is a band that chose its own path and is still standing after how many years? 40+!!! (well, sometimes sitting and falling)...Every town has its legend - the Hankies are our living legend...I believe they are masters of their own musical destiny and that's why everyone embraces them...We love that blend of musical anarchy and good rock'n'roll!! Did the Hankies ever go to school? -Yes, but can you imagine Scott Finnell sitting in chemistry class? Wait, I just thought of some scary possibilities. No PhDs on board, I'd bet on it. Has any Hankie ever been a Rose Queen? -Drake the bass player was not a queen but was on the royal court in 2003. How many hankies have accompanied Snotty over the years? -I'll go 23...23 is a

number that works for everything. Why didn't they break into the big time? -They did if you consider the big time in anyone's career is doing exactly what you want to do...They are true to their own ambition and we locals are better off for it...I actually think they're incredibly unusual and I say this in a loving way - they Hankies are true freaks... And if the big time meanswhat?-record deals and the usual commercial fluff jobwell, they chose differently. What color is their favorite parachute? -The Hankies have made this very clear over the years...their favorite parachute color is the one in front of them. How many groupies has the band actually had....do they have any now? -I'm gonna guess from observation, they've had 10 groupies...9 of them are women and 8 of them are human. Special Thanks to Tom Coston for his invaluable insight into the irreverent world of Snotty Scotty and

The band always starts off the Doo Dah parade with such finesse and good taste. Guitar player Steve usually dons a designer set of spectacles while strutting his vintage Gibson SG atop the Snotty mobile. -Photo by Terry Miller

the Hankies. Remember…. don’t miss their 25th anniversary convert celebrating the first album on Doo Dah Records.

Bottle Shop to celebrate 50 years of family tradition serving Sierra Madre In October of 1963, Frank Sullivan told his brother Bill in Chicago about a business opportunity in Sierra Madre, and Bill got on the phone and closed the deal. A month later, Bill’s wife Marie and their three children ages 7, 6 and 4, hopped on a plane to join Bill in California, where he had come to start setting up the business. When they landed, they found out that President John F. Kennedy had been shot. A month later, on Dec. 23rd, Bill and Marie, never having even operated a cash register before, opened what we now know as the Bottle Shop. Fifty years later, the Bottle Shop is now owned by Bill’s son, Bill, Jr. who runs it with the help of his wife and two sons, Jay and Jeff, who began working their full time after returning from college in 2011. Bill, Jr. and his brother Dan and sister Kathy (Copeland) spent much of their childhood working at the Bottle Shop, substituting chores at home for chores at the shop. “We stocked the cigarettes, bagged the ice, and sorted and separated the deposit bottles seven days a week, and got an allowance of sixty cents a week,” says Bill. After graduating high school in ‘75, Bill Jr. started working full-time at the shop, eventually running the store for all intents and purposes, before purchasing it from his dad in 1984. Bill Sr. pursued other interests, including ownership of Sierra Madre Self Storage until his death in 2011. Marie still owns the Self Storage business. Through the years, the store has seen many changes and many remodels. When the lease for the Buccaneer

lounge next door to the west was up in 1982 and they moved a couple doors up the street, Bill moved into the former Buccaneer space, adding a 17-door walk-in box that allowed the store to stock more than 100 imported beers. In 1998, on Wistaria Day, the store was gutted by fire, and declared a total loss. Forty days later, with the whole family pitching in, the store re-opened.

Recycle Used Oil & Filters! 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!

Workers provided stronger protections against retaliation in the workplace Governor signs AB 263 into law

Assemblymember Roger Hernández’s AB 263 was signed into law by Governor Brown last week. The measure addresses employer retaliation against employees who may be vulnerable to workplace abuse due to their immigration status. “This bill prohibits employers from using an individual’s immigration status against workers who exercise their rights under the California Labor Code or local ordinances. I thank the Governor for his pledge to continue protecting the working class and help safeguard thousands of employees who live in fear in this country, but particularly in this state. For many of us, these workers are often times our fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles or other relatives who face these types of abuses on a daily basis. No individual should be subjected to such despicable tactics.” said Hernández. Early this year, the National Employment Law Project (NELP) issued a California-specific report detailing case studies of egregious immigrant worker abuses occurring in California. The study shows that about one in every ten workers in California is an immigrant with no legal status.

Immigrant workers are more likely to experience wage and hour law violations. Approximately 76 percent of immigrant workers worked off the clock without pay, while over 85 percent did not receive overtime pay. “Those that are most affected come from vulnerable sectors such as in agriculture, construction, manufacturing and the service industries. I would like to thank Assembly Speaker John A. Perez for his leadership and allowing me to chair the Labor and Employment Committee, which has allowed me to work and find solutions to help protect individuals in the workplace. California is taking a bold stand today, through the passage of this bill and other bills, by leading our nation to get back on track for the need of Com-

prehensive Immigration Reform,” concluded Hernandez. AB 263 would also authorize a civil action by an employee or other person who is the subject of an unfair immigration-related practice, and would authorize a court to order a suspension of the business license for up to 14 days of a person who violates these provisions for a first violation, up to 30 days for a second violation, and up to 90 days for a third or subsequent violation. Should any worker request their pay for work performed, request compliance with labor laws, or engage in union activity, this bill will protect against retaliatory practices such as an employer to ICE, e-verify a worker, or even re-verify the worker.

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.

said CEA Chief Executive Officer Glenn Pomeroy. "Knowing how to prepare to survive and recover after a major quake hits is crucial for keeping our families safe. And Californians who take the next step and buy earthquake insurance will be financially prepared as well.

California Shakespeare Ensemble brings villains to Old Town Pasadena Imagine if Shakespeare’s best villains were taken out of their respective plays, reassembled Frankenstein-style, and finally got to be the focus of their own stories. The California Shakespeare Ensemble will do just that in Shakespeare’s Villains as they weave three of the Bard's finest antagonists into one engaging 90-minute show, using only Shakespeare's original words. The CSE, whose most recent show, Shakespeare’s Lovers, was called "by turns poignant, moving, merry, and unafraid to try hysterically funny slapstick" (Altadenablog), and “an opportunity to share some laughs and delight in the works of a master” (shakespeareinla. com), brings their latest creation, Shakespeare's Villains, to Old Town Pasadena. Lineage Performing Arts Center will host the CSE every Sunday at 8pm from October 27th-November 17th in this dark tragicomic look at what it means to be a "villain". Shakespeare's most well-known villains like Iago and Richard III have a long history of fandom. But some of The Bard's more complex villains may actually show us how much evil is in all of us. Is Shylock really a villain? Is Macbeth? The show follows three of Shakespeare's villains-Shylock (Merchant of Venice), Macbeth (Macbeth), and Tybalt (Romeo and Juliet)--using Shakespeare’s original words and their own separate stories, but with a new adaptation and edit by CSE Artistic Director Brian Elerding. The talented cast features veterans of stage and screen; some notables are: Samantha Whittaker (“Ophelia” from Trevor Nunn’s Hamlet at the Old Vic in London), Samantha Sloyan (winner of LA Drama Critics Circle and LA Weekly awards, recurring on ABC’s Scandal), Fred Cross (The Joe Schmo Show, and Second City alum), Alex Weed (Pretty Little Liars, CSI: NY, Criminal Minds). The show runs approximately 90 minutes. Directed by Brian Elerding. Tickets are $20 (or $35 with a limited edition of the published script with admission). Tickets can be purchased at www.californiashakespeare.org or through BrownPaperTickets.com. Doors open at 7:30 for pre-show drinks, show at

8pm. About the Company: Three working actors had an idea one evening over dinner: what if they got the best Shakespearean actors they knew, then stripped their favorite plays down to only the words and the people? What if they slimmed down their production to no more sets or costumes than were required to tell the story at hand? By the end of dinner, the California Shakespeare Ensemble was born. The ensemble is based on the idea of a supergroup; it is a side project for currently working actors, and an incubator for up-and-coming actors. Some in the ensemble are the stars of hit TV shows, and some in the ensemble are fresh from training. Roles are cast from the ensemble without regard to name rec-

ognition. Approx. Run time: 80 minutes. Due to stage violence and some literary innuendo and double entendre, the ensemble recommends the show for adults and teens. There is no nudity, but the show is designed for children 12 years of age and older. What: “Shakespeare’s Villains”—a play featuring Shakespeare’s best villains. Who: The California Shakespeare Ensemble (CSE), a theatrical side project of professional actors in Los Angeles. Where: Lineage Performing Arts Center--89 South Fair Oaks Ave, Pasadena, CA 91105 When: 8pm Sunday shows for four weeks (Oct. 27, Nov. 3, Nov. 10, Nov. 17) Admission: $20 Website: www.californiashakespeare.org

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.

Arcadia High football pounds Glendale 14 -6 The Arcadia High football team kept the clock running and used it against host Glendale High in a 14-6 victory on Oct. 10. Running back Nico Cantos led the way for the Apaches with 65 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries. He said the win was a team effort. “All of our linemen were working hard tonight,” Cantos said. “They were doing really well. Everybody was competing and we just got the job done.” Arcadia coach Andrew Policky said his team dominated on time of possession. “That’s kind of our thing, to run the football and control the clock,” Policky said. “We

They made some plays when they had to. They were able to stop the running game.” Overall, Policky said the team looks better than it did earlier in the season. “We moved the ball,” he said. “We just couldn’t always finish it. We were able to protect the quarterback a little back. But there are some things we got to clean up. It

After giving up a 36yard field goal to Glendale as time ran out in the first half, Arcadia struck again early in the fourth quarter as Cantos scored from four yards out to cap an 11-play, 55-yard drive.
