Arcadia Police seeking witnesses in hit and run collision According to family members, the pedestrian who was hit Sept. 30 is making good progress toward recovery after sustaining severe injuries in this collision.

Will Sierra Madre reprogram the spending? Dear Editor: At the Sierra Madre City Council Meeting on October 8, 2013, the Council had extended discussion about how to spend the $870,000 surplus from the previous year. They programmed approximately one half of the money for the repairs of the City Hall and Police Station roofs and the painting of the exterior of the Library. This was best use of the money on long overdue repairs, even though, if memory serves me right, the finance director had programmed this surplus for use in balancing the budget for the next two years. The thing that wasn't hardly mentioned was the approval of the purchases/ services for fiscal year 2013-2014, which totals over $7M on 35 line items. The first item that jumps out is the $1.5M for the Dial-A-Ride program being paid to First Transit. This expense is outrageous, especially when the City owns the equipment to provide the service, which could be done at a reduced cost of $500,000 to $1 M if the City would hire drivers and do the job themselves. Next comes the legal costs, if it isn't enough to pay $275,000 for one legal firm, the City also pays another law firm the sum

of $175,000. Does the City create that many legal problems and, if so, then maybe they should focus on reducing the problems. Does the City have so many software problems for their computers that they need two firms to provide services? One firm receives $200,000 and the other gets $90,000. The City has a 10year contract, which ends in 2014, for Fire and Paramedic training. Hopefully the City will terminate this contract and handle their own training. This costs $75,000 per year or $750.000 total. The City also pays the Pasadena Humane Society the sum of $27,000/yr. for animal control. This is a strange payment since the Pasadena S.P.C.A. collects all of the animal license fees and does nothing for other kinds of animals such as rats, skunks, coyotes or bears. They also spend $5,000 for Federal Lobbying Services. This is mainly due to hopes that the City will receive a $1O million grant, which was done in the form of an unfunded earmark by our previous representative and earmarks have been outlawed in the U. S. Congress. The problem is greater than the dream of retieving the grant because

it also would require a minimum of a 25% copay by the City and where is the City going to find $2.5M for the grant, which in all likelihood will never come. Most people believe the City should not pay a lobbyist the $65,000 per year and the City should eliminate that expense. The item that really jumps out is the listings of all of the long-term debts which are programmed to the Administration Department. The bookkeeping has long back charged these items to other departments and if this practice was eliminated, then the water and sewer funds would have approximately $1 M to spend on the maintenance of the departments without raising the water rates any more than they already have done. Several items that are listed are for work that probably has already been done, such as the $60,000 contract for the completion of the MWD connection. The Public Works Director said the water would be turned on the next day after the Oct. 8th meeting. Another item is the $220,000 contract for the update of the General Plan, this update is taking far too long for completion.

By Dorothy Denne Those of you who read my column regularly know that I try to find positives to go with the negatives of life. Not always easy. I remember when I had my triple-bypass. I thought that I'd have to look pretty hard to find many for surgery, but they were there. First of all, it saved my life. That's a pretty big positive. Then, it forced me to slow way down while recovering from having it. Actually, I kind of enjoyed the middle phase of my recuperating time. You know, the time when you feel too good to do nothing but not good enough to do something. I long ago recovered but I find myself revisiting that phase a little more often

lately. I've been sitting in the morning sun. I watched our semi-feral cats chase butterflies and grasshoppers. They grew tired and went off for their cat naps. With a cat free environent, along came a blue jay. He teetered on the telephone wire a bit, peering at the three peanuts on the picnic table. He dove down, grabbed one in his beak and flew off to the orange tree. His partner flew in, snatched one and disappeared over the carport. The first one must have stashed his peanut in the orange tree for later. He came back, landed briefly on the wire, scanned the area for cats, swooped down, beaked the remaining nut and settled it in the V of a nearby fence post. There he began turning it with his feet while pecking with his beak. He turned and turned and pecked and pecked until he opened the shell. He ate the nut meats in just a few bites. He has now flown back to the orange tree perhaps for his other

treat, perhaps for a rest. I'm temporarily left in my solitude, but I know another creature will come along. Our jungle attracts all sorts of critters, even skunks. Once we were being visited by a cousin from Ireland. He thought our garden a lovely area in which to sit or stroll. One evening he rounded a bush and I heard a screech followed by a "Holy be Jasus.." I started over but he called, "Stay where ya are, Darlin'. 'Tis a skoonk and it's face to face we are." They stared each other down a while, then the skunk darted into the bush. "Near frightened the life from me it did, but better a scare than a spray." I miss Cousin Eamonn but, I've learned to take some moments to sit and remember the times we have shared--like the time in Ireland when I climbed the stone fence because a bull was chasing me. That's another story I'll tell another time. For now, I'm going to watch a lizard.

Pasadena Crown City Chorus captures the championship It was a championship moment. Actually, it was approximately 10 minutes that were needed for the Pasadena Crown City Chorus to capture the championship in its category. This was the result during the Barbershop Harmony Society’s Far Western Division Convention and Competition in Bakersfield on Saturday, October 12. Singing a capella, in four-part barbershop harmony, the chorus performed Rock-A-Bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody and Somewhere, Over the Rainbow. A panel of nine judges evaluated all 25 competing choruses. Each chorus was judged on music, presentation, and singing. Music, presentation, and singing determine the relative rank of each of the choruses. The Crown City Chorus ended ranked 15 out the 25 competing choruses, receiving its highest score from the judges in the

the music’s primary theme, and to the degree that everything about the performance contributes to the emotional impact on the audience. In 1949, the Pasadena Crown City Chorus became a chartered member of what today is known at the Barbershop Harmony Society. The Society began in 1936 as the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Singing in America. The name changed in 2004. Members of the chorus

are turning their attention to their next big events. On December 14, they present their Christmas Show at Pasadena’s Church of the Nazarene. The show begins at 2:00 p.m., and tickets are now on sale. On December 21, the chorus is participating in its Singing Christmas Card program. Orders for the Christmas cards are being taken.

singing category. “Overall, I’m really pleased with what we did and the scores, placement and championship that we earned,” said John Minsker, music director of the chorus. “There were no standout voices, everyone blended in a nice warm sound.” Judges in the singing category evaluate the degree to which the performer achieves artistic singing in the barbershop style. According to Time Marron, one of the singing judges, the production of vibrant, rich, resonant, technically accurate, and highly skilled sound, created both by the individual singer’s use of good vocal techniques, and by the ensemble processes of tuning, balancing, unity of sound and precision. The judges in the categories of music and presentation evaluated other aspects of the performance, including the degree to which the musical performance demonstrates an artistic sensitivity to

‘Ward Service’ celebrates 90 years in the automotive service business The longtime San Gabriel Valley automotive business, Ward Service, will celebrate 90 years of business on November 2nd, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with classic cars on display, celebrity guests, and live music at 130 Railroad Avenue in Monrovia. The event is open to the public and parking will be available at the Park & Ride lot on S. Myrtle Avenue. The celebratory event celebrates Ward Service's longevity as a family-owned, family-run business from its 1923 inception through economic recessions, gasoline wars, war-time rationing, and a forced relocation to build the 210 freeway in Pasadena. Now run by the fourth generation, Ward Service is one of the oldest family-run automotive businesses in California. "Ward Service has outlasted many of its competitors by holding fast to its family values and strong work ethic," notes Tom Ward, 3rd generation owner of the business. "When other service stations and tow companies closed at night, our service stations and tow trucks were operating, helping thousands of stranded motorists to get home safely. When you employ your family to run a business, you get an extra level of commitment that you can't always expect from employees." The 90th anniversary party will showcase Ward Service's 'preferred status' as classic and antique car mechanics with customers and celebrity media displaying their prized classic cars. "We will have a classic rock band entertaining our guests, a taco truck, cupcakes,

popcorn and snow cones," states Office Manager Melanie Ward. "We want to create an old-time feel for our event to celebrate and honor our 90-year heritage." On display will be classic motorcycles, Hot Rods from the 20s to the 70s, antique cars, muscle cars, NHRA race cars, rare and unusual vehicles, and a high-wheeler bicycle for the public to view. Owner Jim Ward says, "Many of the vehicles are owned by our customers and we are proud to include them as part of our 90th Anniversary gala. To entertain our guests, we will be doing an engine blow with the local Fire Department. Later, we will hold a raffle with some large gift prizes that auto fans are sure to enjoy. All proceeds from the raffle will go to the Monrovia Fire Department to help them restore one of their antique fire trucks." During Ward Service's long history (78 years of those years in Pasadena and 12 in Monrovia), the Wards have served as civic and auto industry leaders giving back to their community. Organizations they have served in leadership include Pasadena's lauded

Tournament of Roses, the Pasadena Lions Club, Pasadena Optimists Club, Pasadena Junior Chamber and Pasadena Quarterbacks Club. Additionally, they have led their industry with fourth generation owners Mike and Tom Ward serving terms as president of the local chapter of the Automotive Service Council and the California Tow Truck Association. Today, fourth generation owner Jim Ward continues that heritage as president of ASCCA, after serving as president of the Rotary Club's Monrovia chapter and on the board member of the Santa Anita Family YMCA. "We've built a heritage of community service throughout the generations of automotive business," says Jim Ward. "We look forward to keeping that tradition alive with the same family values that have served us through the past 90 years." For more information on the Ward Service's 90th Anniversary event, please contact Melanie Ward at: (626) 357-8080. For more information on Ward Service, please go to: www. wardservice.com.

Shooting in Pasadena raises questions Continued from page 1

Pasadena on Oct 11.. Sanchez said the officer shot Holloway after he produced a firearm, and said a loaded firearm was recovered close to Holloway at the scene of the crime. Many residents and and local attorneys are calling for more community input into police (OIS) shootings with the hope of garnering better relations all around. John Kennedy, Pasadena Councilman District 3, recently sent two letters to Chief Sanchez, regarding the latest incident and the need for transparency in the Police Dept.. He told Chief Sanchez that constituants are calling demanding answers and he said “ Because there is no process, I have nothing to tell them in terms of who will review the shooting, where they can have questions answered and what will the City do to insure that thye rights of all were protected.” Kennedy added that “It would be helpful, in my view, for the Police Department to receive some policy direction from the City Council on the criteria for that contact, which would then be applied by the public official(s) designated in the policy. Calling for a formal investigation by an outside body is a serious matter and should not be solely left to the Police Department to make, nor should it be made on an ad hoc basis without some policy guidance. The Police Department has provided an excellent starting point for a public discussion on protocols that will serve the interest of the city as a wholes Discussing and adopting a set of protocols at a policy level, and then applying them, will help eliminate

polarization and will, as I see it, protect the interests of the community and of the police officers involved.” Kennedy said. The chief has responded to Kennedy’s concerns with these commitments: 1. “Designate internal review bodies and the titles of personnel involved in review:” a. The Pasadena Police Department has historically investigated all police officer involved (OIS) shootings. Following the OIS, the on-duty sergeant or lieutenant immediately begins the investigation by asking the officer the public safety questions. The officer is sequestered and subsequently he/she is interviewed by Homicide Detectives who are responsible for investigating OIS’. b. Pasadena Police Homicide Detectives immediately conduct a comprehensive investigation. They interview any and all civilian witnesses, review and collect evidence, interview the involved officer and any law enforcement officials who may have witnessed the incident. They also review the MAV and search for other forms of security video, which helps them piece together the incident. c. The Pasadena Police Department conducts an administrative review in addition to the criminal investigation. During the administrative review the department looks at: a) State of mind of the involved officers; b) Tactics; c) Training, d) policies and procedures; and e) Equipment. During the administrative review the department determines

if the shooting was in or out of policy. If the shooting is deemed in policy, the department examines “lesson learned” and incorporates the new techniques into department training. If the shooting is determined to be out of policy, the department’s Internal Affairs Division conducts a comprehensive investigation and appropriate corrective and disciplinary actions are undertaken. 2. “Designate external review bodies and the criteria for invoking external review:” a. Currently there are several forms of external review when a Pasadena Police Officer is involved in an on-duty OIS. The first level of review is conducted by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office – OIS Roll Out Team. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s OIS Roll Out Team consists of a Deputy District Attorney and Field Investigator. When an onduty shooting occurs, the LA DA’s Command Post is contacted (via telephone). A brief description is provided based on the facts known at the time. Typically if the individual is hit by gunfire from a police officer the DA’s Command Post dispatches the Roll Out Team and DA Investigators respond to the incident. They typically talk with command personnel (me, the Deputy Chief or Commander) and Homicide Detectives. The DA Investigators walk the crime/shooting scene with police detectives, review evidence and have the option to assist with officer/ witness/suspect interview(s). In all cases involving a death of the suspect when shot by

a Pasadena Police officer, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office conducts an independent medical review of the round strikes on the body, cause of death, toxicology, etc. In some cases, and depending on the circumstances, the FBI or OIRG is contacted and requested to conduct an independent review. 3. “Establish questions that will be answered in the course of the reviews.” a. Currently, the Pasadena Police Department has baseline questions they ask the involved officers, witnesses or other stakeholders. The questions are typically driven by the totality of the circumstances and focus on “how did the incident begin, what happened, what did you see, what did you hear, why did you find it necessary to use force?” The broad topics generate additional questions to determine veracity, accuracy of the statement and other critical components of the interview. 4. “Establish time frames for 1 and 2.” a. The timelines for internal/external criminal and administrative reviews are driven by the complexity of the incident. The LA DA’s Office strives to deliver a finding (legal or illegal) in approximately six months. The Los Angeles Coroner’s Office usually returns findings within a few months. FBI and OIRG usually take more than a year, depending on the complexity of the incident. These timelines are consistent with incident investigations in effect for more than 30 years. 5. “Establish a “hot line” for witness or concerned persons with

provisions for anonymity and follow up with those wish it.” a. The Pasadena Police Department currently establishes a “hotline” for witnesses in all serious crime. The hotline allows for anonymity. Frequently, witnesses will email the Office of the Chief of Police (maintaining anonymity) to report their observations, statements, or other key information. In addition, the Pasadena Police Department uses “Crime Stoppers” to offer witnesses the opportunity to report crime, witness statements, observations, etc. Again, anonymity is an option. Moreover, the department’s Community Relations Section explains and promotes the use of “Crime Stoppers” at community events and meetings. The Crime

Stopper is also frequently listed in the chief’s weekly, message: Touching Base: A Message from the Chief. In addition, following an OIS, Pasadena Police Outreach officers walk the neighborhood seeking out witnesses and answer questions concerned residents might have. 6. “Report in public to the Public Safety Committee allowing public comment/” a. Currently, the Pasadena Police Department delivers a preliminary OIS report to Public Safety at their first meeting following an incident. Later, when all independent investigations are complete, the police department again presents information to the Public Safety Committee. Phillip L. Sanchez, Chief of Police, Pasadena Police Department

Temple City Unified may get into 21st Century

The Social Whirl

Robo calls could be replaced with tweets and Facebook posts Temple City school board says Temple City Unified School District should have a say about what board members post on Facebook and Twitter. And, if social media is the way to go considering recent developments in emergency situations, it would be imperative for administrators to use this technology otherwise so widely accepted. An amendment to previous notes about social media use says “the board encourages members who participate

on social networking sites, blogs or other discussion or informational sites to conduct themselves in a respectful, courteous and professional manner and to model good behavior for students and the community.” Two weeks ago the district received three bomb threats directed toward Longden Elementary and Temple City High School from Sept. 24 to 27.TCUSD doesn’t have a Facebook or Twitter account and therefore relied on the oldfashioned robo call to alert

parents of the situation. Archaic, in the minds of many. A week before Temple City’s bomb threats, Duarte Unified and Arcadia Unified school districts provided worried parents with realtime updates about a possible shooter on campus with an AK47 . TCUSD has social media guidelines for students and employees. It reminds staff and teachers to make sure their electronic communication is professional, courteous and conscientious.

The Social Whirl Shakespeare Club Texas Style Bar-B-Que A beautiful fall sunset was the background as members and guests gathered in the arbor on the Arroyo at The Shakespeare Clubhouse for a fun County Western Party on September 28th. It was a “good-ole” “Texas Style Bar-B-Que Party”, hosted by the Membership and Social Activities Committees of the Shakespeare Club. There were 65 attendees which included 10 guests. Cocktails and appetizers began at 6:30 and was followed by a Texas Style BBQ diner. The food was catered by the Smokin’ Steve’s (Simi Valley) and served by committee members. Members and Guests were entertained throughout the evening by a terrific country western band “The Podunk Poets”.

The Social Whirl Last Days of Temporary Exhibit Life Interrupted: Personal Sketches Behind Barbed Wire, Santa Anita, Summer 1942, Riyo Sato (1913-2009) Hurry in before November 2, 2013 to see a wonderful display of never before seen sketches by Riyo Sato. Riyo was forced to leave her home in Palo Alto, California on May 26, 1942 and was interned at the Santa Anita Japanese Assembly Center, built on the grounds of Santa Anita Park. From there, she and her family were removed to Heart Mountain Relocation Center near Cody, Wyoming. Riyo was educated at the California College of the Arts (formerly California College of Arts and Crafts) in Oakland, California, and completed her Bachelor

Degree in Art Education in 1940. During the relocation experience at the Santa Abita Assembly Center, Riyo continued sketching, to keep her skills sharp. At Heart Mountain Relocation Center, she worked as an art instructor in the school.. After the war, she earned her Master’s Degree in Design and Art Education at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, and worked for over 30 years teaching art to junior and senior high school students. Her quick sketches offer a glimpse of everyday life in the early stages of the internment experience, a dark time in

America’s history. They will be on exhibit along with biographical information and photographs of Riyo. This exhibit was made possible by her family. For more information, please call 626/574-5440 or visit the Gilb Museum of Arcadia Heritage website at http:www.ci.arcadia.ca.us/ home/index.asp?page=815.

LA Phil Annual Halloween presentation at Walt Disney Concert Hall features: Classic Horror Film, The Phantom of the Opera, The Annual Halloween haunt at Walt Disney Concert Hall features on of the most classic horror movies of the 1920’s, The Phantom of the Opera, starring Lon Chaney as Erik, the Phantom, in makeup he famously constructed for the role. The projection of the 1925 silent film will be accompanied by a live soundtrack performed by organist Clark Wilson on Halloween, Thursday, October 31, 2012 at 8:00 PM. Based on the French novel Le fantome de I’Opera by Gaston Leroux, the 1925 film The Phantom of the Opera (restored in 2003 by Photoplay Productions) tells the haunting tale of a mysterious ghost that haunts the Paris Opera House and its performers. Myth

becomes reality when he reveals himself to the young singer Christine Daae (Mary Philbin). A love triangle ensues between Christine, the masked phantom, and Vicomte Raoul de Chagny (Norman Kerry) who, enraptured by her melodic voice, risks his own life to save Christine from the unyielding power the phantom holds over her. Accompanying the silent film is organist Clark Wilson, who returns to Walt Disney Concert Hall for the tenth straight year. Wilson is one of the most prominent and recognized scorers of silent photoplays in America today. He works exclusively with the organ in developing accurate and historic musical accompaniments as they were performed in major

picture palaces during the heyday of the silent film. Wilson’s organ theatrics give a pulse to these silent films, intensifying the suspenseful and chilling twists. Based in Ohio, Wilson is an acclaimed organ technician and consultant. He has earned both the ATOS Organist of the Year award and the Atos Technician of Merit award – the only person to receive both distinctions. An Upbeat Live preconcert event will take place in BP Hall at 7:00 PM and is free of charge to all ticket holders. Alan Chapman, KUSC-FM radio host, composer-lyricist and pianist hosts.

Lifeline for Pets Cat of the Week: "Tucker" TUCKER is a special case, and an urgent one. We are working with the rescuer to find a safe home for this sweetheart, before the weather turns colder. Why special? TUCKER is FIV+ (feline immunodeficiency virus). Although he appears normal, this means that he has an infection that may lead to an inability for his body to protect itself against future infections. This also means that he must be indoor only, and should be the only cat, as the disease can be transmitted through bite wounds. All that being said, sweet TUCKER, once a semi-feral stray, has made tremendous progress in

trusting and loving. He loves nothing better than to be close to "his people." TUCKER'S full story and video is on our website, posted below, and where we also have a link for more information about FIV. Please, please, help us find a home for TUCKER. If you read his story on our website, touchingly told by his rescuer, you will understand why he must be adopted-and fast. Call 818-613-6738. Lifeline For Pets is a no-kill rescue organization operated solely by volunteers. See us in person 2nd & 4th Sundays at Petsmart, 3347 E. Foothill Blvd. in Pasadena, 12:30-3:30 p.m.

Walmart customers in Louisiana milk the EBT system Government shutdown may have played a roll

Word quickly spread faster than a school of catfish swimming down-stream in the Lacombe Bayou in the Louisiana towns of Springhill and Mansfield - that a food stamp glitch was giving recipients an early Christmas present of unlimited balances on their Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards, causing two local Wal-Marts to be completely ransacked last Saturday night according to numerous reports. Beacon first heard about the story from a Tennessee native businessman Heath Strasser who works in the financial field here in Pasadena. “I couldn’t believe it,” Strasser said with a giant gasp in his breath…

“these guys were just loading up their carts with big-screen TV’s, electronics such as cell phones…anything they could get their hands on and they knew they were stealing but didn’t care.” “I can’t believe no one is talking about it,” Stasser declared unequivocally. When a few alert WalMart employees noticed that EBT cards weren’t showing any limits, they called the corporate office and were advised to allow shoppers to use the cards regardless. “We did make the decision to continue to accept EBT cards during the outage so that they could get food for their families,” WalMart representatives told local media.

However, food was the last very thing in most peoples’ carts Saturday according to eyewitnesses. “They were grabbing everything off the shelves… they were looting… it was that crazy” said one eyewitness who refused to be identified. Local police officers were called in for crowd control, however no one was arrested according to reports. “It was definitely worse than Black Friday. It was worse than anything we had ever seen in this town.” There was no food left on any of the shelves, and no meat left. The grocery part of Wal-Mart was totally decimated said Springhill Police Chief Will Lyn.

L.A. firefighter accused of beating woman who was feeding feral cats A Los Angeles firefighter faces felony battery and other charges for allegedly beating a woman feeding stray cats in his neighborhood after she threw cat kibble at him during a verbal altercation, according to the Associated Press Published reports say 37-year-old Ian Justin Eulian,

a fire engineer, is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday. His 70-year-old mother, Lonieta Antonietta Fontaine, is due in court Friday to also face charges connected to the Sept. 14 beating of an unidentified 47-year-old woman. Prosecutors say Ian Eulian yelled at the woman

for feeding stray cats. When she threw kibble at him to get him to back off, he allegedly punched her several times. Lonieta Fontaine is accused of slapping the woman . A video camera apparently caught the disputes.

La Salle HS Homecoming La Salle High School students had the opportunity to experience entertainment both on and off Kohorst Field for Homecoming Week. The Student Life team worked throughout the month to bring “A Blast from the Past!” to the students and Royal Court at the rally before the big game on Friday, October 18. Watching the school come together at the rally further motivated the student body to come watch the Lancer football team compete that night against Mary Star of the Sea High School. During halftime of the football game, Robert McCreary and his sister Missy McCreary were crowned Homecoming King and Queen. With their mother and father by their sides, the King and Queen wore their crowns in front of the crowd and cheered the Lancers on during the second half where the Lancers defeated the Stars 51-20! The Homecoming Dance, sponsored by the Junior Class Council, followed on Saturday night.

State Sen. Carol Liu takes a serious look at poverty in schools State Sen. Carol Liu (D-La Cañada Flintridge) recently visited Madison Elementary School in Pasadena as part of her “Pathways to Partnership: Community Schools Strategy in Action” tour, an office spokesman said. Liu came to Pasadena to support student success and strengthen families and discuss Pasadena area initiatives, such as the City/School/Community Workplan and the district’s Healthy Start centers. Liu said the bus tour is designed to help families throughout the state. “It looks at poverty in California,” said Liu, who is chair of the Senate Education Committee. “This year we’re looking at how we can assist children in need in communities and schools up and down the state.” Liu added it is important that the city of Pasadena and the Pasadena Unified School District collaborate on these initiatives. “That’s a partnership between the city and school

By Shel Segal district to see how they can work together to help these students,” she said. “It’s a three-year program to see how they can better help the students and families. They teach parents to be better advocates for their kids and how to access services if they need services.” The City/School/ Community Workplan is a framework for building the commitment for stakeholders to work together cooperatively in order to improve student outcomes, support the local economy and to ensure the community grows as a local and global center of innovation. Using research, models and previous school, city and community planning efforts, a draft framework and set of existing and proposed strategies was jointly approved by the Pasadena Unified Board of Education and Pasadena City Council last February. PUSD’s Healthy Start program operates at five school sites: Madison Elementary School,

Cleveland Elementary School, Jackson Elementary School, Eliot Middle School and Rose City High School. The sites provide students and families with case management services and a multitude of resources including health and mental health services, classes for parents, assistance for basic needs, and academic services for students. The Madison Healthy Start Center was recently completed under Measure TT, a $350 million school bond initiative passed by area voters in 2008. The centerpieces of the new facility are preschool classrooms that serve 35 to 40 students each year. Also part of the facility are rooms for health education, parent education, social services referrals and other services. The center is staffed by a Healthy Start coordinator and caseworkers as well as dedicated parent volunteers. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com).

Pacific Plate Brewery shakes things up somewhat Continued from page 1

creative group. Two of them were home brewers who worked together at LegalZoom.com. When Steven Koonshian was laid off from the legal website, he felt the time was right to start his own business. With his fellow Zoomer, Jonathan Parada , he began to make plans (as Koo explained it was Para who had first gotten him interested in home brewing). At this point they brought in the third member of the team, Steven Cardenas, a graduate of UC San Diego who was working on his doctorate at another UC campus studying biology. In one of his classes, Cardenas studied biofuels. This led him to an interest in yeasts. From biofuels it was a short jump to microbrews. According to Koonshian theirs is a “yeast” brewery. He explained, “Some microbrewers focus on hops to craft their beers. We use different yeasts instead.” Ask any one of them, and you will get a brief tour of their brewery (it won’t take long as it the

whole process takes place in the small ¬¬¬industrial park facility). One most interesting feature is their yeast propagation system. As Parada pointed out, “yeast can get very expensive, so we decided to grown our own.” What they create with those very special yeasts is a wide variety of microbrews. Each visit will bring different selections. The list varies from day to day as the trio brews constantly. On one recent visit they had an American Wheat, the next week it was a Sour Cherry Wheat. On that first visit there was a great Bavarian Hefeweiss with an amazing clove/banana flavor. The nicest thing about their beers is that even the flavored brews (nor normally my favorite styles of beer or ale) are done with such a gentle, deft hand that they are quite enjoyable. Cardenas explained that they fruit rather than extracts. They are added at the end for a secondary fermentation. In essence, the sugar in the fruit “jump starts” the yeast which dutifully begins

turning the additional sugars into more alcohol. The result is a drier beer (less sweet), but watch out: the higher alcohol level can catch you unaware. The best way to try their offerings is the taster sampler. The price varies depending on the number and types of offerings. Try the whole flight (or share it with a friend). I was tempted to skip the brews I normally don’t like (Hefeweiss & flavored ales) and found that I liked

them here. Try it; you may change your mind about what you like. Pacific Plate Brewing is located at 1999 South Myrtle Avenue (phone (626) 2398456). It is open from 4 to 10 pm Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, from noon to 10 pm on Saturday, and from noon to 6 pm on Sunday. They are closed on Monday and Tuesday. If you are driving south on Myrtle and pass Monrovia Fire Station #2, you have gone a bit too far.

The ComedySportz High School League® is the largest, most successful team improv theatre program in the United States. They play improvisation as a team sport, with two teams "competing" for audience laughs. The stage is covered in turf, there's a referee and the players are in uniform. It's not comedy about sports; it's comedy played as a sport. Because everyone knows what a sport is, there is immediate buy-in from the audience. People who have never been to the theatre before walk through the door because they're not intimidated. Because it's improvisational, it's always different. The newest “sport” in America, ComedySportz combines the competition of sports with the artistic expression of theatre, where “winning” is only part of the show. In fact, players will attest to the fact that the “we must win” attitude prevalent in so many high school activities is a sure ticket to

failure in ComedySportz. Each match pits two teams of improvisers in a friendly battle for audience laughs. With an Astro-turfed stage, player uniforms, a referee, a scoreboard, a ballpark organist and audience judges, ComedySportz successfully blends sports with theatre in a fun, fastpaced show designed for all ages. Our annual "Home Coming" Match is scheduled for Wednesday, October 30, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in Theatre 601 at Temple City High School, 9501 Lemon Ave, Temple City, CA 91780. General Admission is $5.

El Monte elections hopefuls Continued from page 1

Running for City Council Juventino “J” Gomez – A long-time resident of the City of El Monte currently serving on the City Council, Gomez is seeking re-election. A Veteran who served in 1965, he has made it a priority to establish City commissions dedicated to the care and housing of Veterans and homeless. “We have accomplished a lot,” he says. “I will continue to listen to your ideas and concerns.” Norma Macias – The 42-year-old businesswoman currently serves as El Monte’s Mayor Pro Tem. Making the beautification of the City a priority, she was a key player in turning El Monte into a Tree City USA. Interested in job creation, she helped develop an annual City Job Fair. She believes sacrifices are necessary for progress, so she promises to “lead by example. That’s why I will continue to cut my car and travel allowances,” she says. Macias is seeking re-election. Frank Amezcua – Challenging the incumbents, Amezcua is an AP Government and Politics teacher at a charter school

in Hollywood. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a master’s degree in Education and Counseling. He ran for a place in City Council in 2007 and is offering his services again because he believes the City needs to develop its business sector and its youth programs. “If elected I intend to work diligently to improve the City of El Monte,” he says. Jerry Velasco – A 26year resident of El Monte, Velasco currently serves as Treasurer for the San Gabriel Valley Civic Alliance, as Planning Commissioner for El Monte, and as a Police Auxiliary Committee Member. He is seeking election as City Treasurer, a position for which he is currently uncontested. (A potential contender, Katy Ramirez, pulled herself from the race, according to El Monte’s City Clerk’s Office.) Velasco counts with the support of City Council members Quintero, Macias, and Patel. Jonathan Hawes – Currently serving in the Community Affairs commission, 33-year-old Hawes seeks election as

El Monte’s City Clerk, a position that will be left open by Lorene Gutierrez.

Boy Scouts, Baca and a Beatle

B

oy Scouts are in the news again….what a surprise! No, this time it’s not a sex scandal or their reluctance to accept gays in the scouts. This time it is “grown” men ( Scout troop ‘leaders’) acting like complete nincompoops and plainly getting their dimwitted rocks off by destroying a historic Hoodoo formation millions of years old. All captured on their own video… It took either 170 million or 200 million years (depending on who you talk to) for the wind and water to create the hoodoos that are the main attraction in Goblin Valley State Park in Utah. It just took about sixty seconds for these two Boy Scout troop leaders to push one over. Hoodoos are formed when layers of harder rock forms on top of softer sediment. Water, wind and freeze-thaw cycles erode the soft stuff, leaving the mushroomlike top. They have been around for a while and it is

unlikely that it is teetering on the edge of collapse. The video shows a big guy doing a lot of work to push it over. It was not loose or wobbling as these pathetic excuses for ‘leaders’ said. The BSofA were not amused by these twits. Baden-Powell must be rolling in his grave. Well done guys, another shining example of teaching younger men how to behave like complete and utter hooligans. Which of course, is what you are!

I’m so glad you set such a great example for kids. A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent. Apparently these men never read that Scout Law! Baca is back in the news…again. This time the Feds find Baca personally liable in the jail abuse case. According to the Los Angeles Times “A federal jury found Los Please see page 17

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.

Firefighters battle breast cancer with donations

La Salle’s Open House - Nov. 3

Members of the Pasadena Fire Department hit the streets to fill their boots on Monday morning. Gathering at the intersections of Arroyo Parkway and Del Mar Boulevard and Foothill and Rosemead boulevards, firefighters hosted a “Fill the Boot” event to raise money to help raise breast cancer awareness, said firefighter Danae La Trobe. La Trobe said the money would be going to a big cause. “All the money that we are receiving from donations here on the street are going to go Huntington Breast Center, which is who we are donating to,” La Trobe said. She added she is hoping the center uses the money wisely. “We are hoping to provide free mammograms to women in the community,” she said. In addition, La Trobe said she is glad the fire de-

partment is able to help out the breast center. “It is extremely important, especially since we are a community outreach here as firefighters,” she said. “The more we can provide for our community, the better off we are. “We’ve had the opportunity to work with some bigger corporations in the past. We like to see where our money is going. And here with the Breast Center we can see directly where our money is going.” While the department has helped other charities in the past, La Trobe said she is happy to be helping out the hospital this time around. “This is the first time we have done ‘Fill the Boot’ for breast cancer awareness,” she said. “Several times throughout the year fire departments throughout the nation do ‘Fill the Boot’ for Muscular Dystrophy.” A percentage of pro-

ceeds from California Pizza Kitchen on Los Robles Avenue that evening were donated, as well. “Anything from a dollar to a thousand dollars would be great,” she said. Tatiana Noguera, assistant general manager from California Pizza Kitchen, said she is glad her restaurant was able to help. “It’s really important,” Noguera said. “It’s really important that we are supportive of the fire department that everything goes as successfully as it could be.” She added giving is part of her company’s culture. “One of our philosophies is that we give back to the community and this is one way that we can help the fire department give back to the hospital and that makes a difference,” she said.

Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca personally liable in a case involving abuse of an inmate in the Men's Central Jail, meaning the sheriff could be required to pay $100,000 out of pocket. It is the first time a jury has held Baca personally at fault in a deputy use-of-force case. Sheriff's officials called the verdict a "huge mistake" and said they would appeal.” Beatle Paul McCartney has been rather industrious lately. The 71 year old Beatle continues to surprise fans in New York and London with impromptu concerts to promote his new CD. I’m pissed only ‘cause Paul didn’t ask me to shoot any one of the gigs. The last chance I had to photograph Paul and the other lads from Liverpool was in 1965 at New York’s Shea Stadium. But that didn’t work out very well. My Dad – who worked for a big Daily newspaper in the UK –The Telegraph, was assigned to cover the concert for the paper…he had extra Press credentials and promised to take his sons ( only the biggest Beatle fans in the world) to this historic concert. He gave the press passes away in a pub the night before that celebrated concert. We never forgave

him, really! Paul, when you read this… how about it, man. You let Harry Benson shoot you lots of times (Benson is one of my Dad’s good friends and terrific photojournalist) I want photograph you in concert, anywhere in the world. Just give me a chance. You name the time and place. I’ll be there Sir Paul! I’ve not had much luck with trying to photograph any of the mop tops over the years. In 1969, I thought I’d get a chance to meet George Harrison at The Concert for Bangladesh in Madison Sq. Garden… But, again that didn’t work out either - my ticket was way up “ in the gods…” as they say back home. My measly 50mm Nikon lens couldn’t really quite capture the pot cloud in the Garden that night let alone the stage. If you listen closely to the album however, you will hear my hands clapping after each song - really. More recently, Ringo got his star on the walk of fame in Hollywood…I felt sure I’d get to meet the legend and sole reason I play drums being so close to Pasadena. But this wasn’t to happen either. The PR person at Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said she couldn’t let me in the “photo pen” due to the

overwhelming requests. Rubbish! She could easily let me in. However, this PR pariah was just part of the colossal conspiracy aimed at preventing me from making any Beatle image with my trusty Nikon. Actually, I think Ringo was worried I’d want to play his drums. Even when John Lennon moved to New York, I had just moved to California. Man, I was not lucky at all. Sadly, nor was Lennon. However, years later, I was invited to meet Yoko Ono at Santa Barbara Museum of Art-it was astonishing, of course, and I was asked to submit photos of her to her foundation, which I was delighted to do. Sitting and drinking cocktails with Yoko Ono... Twenty years later, I managed to photograph her again, this time with Quincy Jones at the NAMM show in Anaheim. She kindly waved when she saw me again. Yoko is very gracious and not pretentious. One can see why John was in so love with her. On the other hand, Paul still maintains that Yoko should never have been in the studio with (The Beatles) them…it caused a lot of animosity which has been well publicized.

Sunday, October 13: Around 2:30 a.m., an officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle with three occupants for a broken tail light.

Time of Hearings: The public hearing by the Planning Commission meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at the City Council Chambers at Arcadia City Hall, 240 West Huntington Drive, Arcadia, California. The public hearing by the City Council is tentatively scheduled to be held on Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 7:00 p.m., at the City Council Chambers at Arcadia City Hall, 240 West Huntington Drive, Arcadia, California. Environmental Document: Addendum to the City of Arcadia 2035 General Plan Final Environmental Impact Report, as it relates to the 2013-2021 Housing Element Update. The Housing Element Update does not change the environmental conclusions of the Final EIR (SCH #2009081034) certified in November, 2010, nor does the Housing Element Update result in new impacts or mitigation measures. The 2013-2021 Housing Element Update of the Arcadia General Plan contains analyses, strategies, policies and programs for addressing the following goals: ensuring the provision of sufficient housing for all income groups, preserving affordable housing stock, minimizing governmental constraints in providing housing, affordable housing opportunities for low and moderate income residents, and complying with all applicable laws and regulations relating to housing. By State law, a City’s Housing Element must be periodically updated in order to assess the changing needs of the region and the community, and to establish an action plan to address these needs. The updated Housing Element is also subject to review by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for compliance with State housing law. On October 2, 2013, HCD determined that the draft Housing Element Update addresses the statutory requirements of State housing law. The Housing Element Update is a planning document. Its adoption would not authorize any change in land use designations, zones, regulations, or development permit(s). Subsequent proposals for amendments to City land use regulations or for development projects would be subject to separate review, including environmental review as appropriate. The Planning Commission will review the draft 2013-2021 Housing Element Update and make a recommendation to the City Council as to whether or not to approve the document as an amendment to the Arcadia General Plan and the Addendum to the City of Arcadia 2035 General Plan Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR – SCH# 2009081034, hereafter referred to as the Final EIR). Following the recommendation from the Planning Commission, the City Council will be asked to approve the 2013-2021 Housing Element Update as an amendment to the Arcadia General Plan and to submit the approved document to the California Department of Housing and Community Development for certification. A copy of the draft 2013-2021 Housing Element Update is available for review at the Arcadia City Library at 20 W. Duarte Road; at City Hall in the Planning Services office at 240 W.

The Petition for Probate requests that Kathleen Marie Doane Lira be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court

approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: December 3, 2013 at 8:30 a.m., Dept.29, Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, 111 N. Hill Street, Los Angeles, Ca. 90012. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in Probate Code section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date noticed above. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.

It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 480-5690 or (800) 843-0260 ext 5690 or visit this Internet Web site: http://www.tacforeclosures.com/ sales, using the file number assigned to this case A540662 A. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the monies paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee or the Mortgagee’s attorney.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on a property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco.com, using the file number assigned to this case TS No. 11-0040463. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

AUSD expands AVID Program By SHEL SEGAL

Liberty Tax Service in El Monte. He has lived in the City for 23 years. Aguilar has a bachelor’s degree in Business Relations and Accounting, is a CTEC Registered Tax Preparer and a Food Safety Certified Trainer. He is running for City Clerk hoping to make records accessible and transparent, to modernize office document systems, and to “help the City and bring my professional experience with no stipend for a year.”

The Arcadia Unified School District has announced it is placing a renewed focus on students in the academic middle who have the potential and motivation to be among the top-performing students in the district. Last year AVID – or Advancement Via Individual Determination – was introduced at Arcadia High School. This year, the program is being expanded to First Avenue and Dana middle schools. “It’s very easy for a student who’s getting by on average grades to just get lost in the system,” said AUSD Board of Education President Cung Nguyen. “By incorporating this structured program, we’re providing additional mentoring to students while teaching them important study and organizational skills that may just be what they need to perform at the next level.” Currently, roughly 140 students are participating in the AVID program. As part of the AVID elective, two days a week students

break into small groups to work on problems they need help with in a variety of subjects. However, instead of simply giving each other the answers, students ask questions to guide each other to the solution. The remaining three days are spent on various lessons that provide students with additional academic support, such as lessons on how to take proper notes, binder organization, how to ask great questions and be efficient in their work. “Through this process, our students are learning to think more critically and work collaboratively in their search for a solution,” said AUSD Superintendent Joel Shawn. “At the same time, AVID is helping to create a connection between kids and their campuses so that they’re more enthusiastic about learning and reaching their goals.” During a recent sophomore AVID elective class at Arcadia High School, students spent their classroom time in small groups helping each other solve their problems.

They were engaged as they led their classmates to the solution by asking the proper questions. “This class has been really helpful in terms of organization, because before I was just a mess,” said sophomore Taylor Cadd, who is now in his second year of the AVID program. “Now I am much more organized and I have better study habits.” Their teacher Leslie Klipstein roams the classroom to help guide students on their tutorial days, teaches formal lessons three days a week and performs “binder checks” every Friday to ensure students are staying organized and have all that they need to be successful in their academics. “AVID strategies are just good strategies for everyone, teachers and students alike. For some, these come naturally, and others need to be taught this

often "hidden curriculum" of how deep learning happens,” Klipstein said. “Anyone can benefit from AVID, and these kids are working hard to reach their full potential. I couldn't be more proud of them.” In fact, each summer the district sends a new group of teachers across grade levels and subject areas to AVID training so that they may incorporate the strategies into their own AVID and non-AVID classrooms. The district plans to further expand the program next year. To be accepted into the program, pre-selected students who the district determines may benefit from AVID are interviewed to ensure they are selfmotivated to reach higher academic achievement, a main requirement for the program.
