Gerardo Cortez pleads not guilty in threats to shoot students in area schools By Shel Segal A Monrovia man pled not guilty on Friday West Covina Courthouse in Los Angeles County Superior Court to allegedly making a series of threats throughout the San Gabriel Valley late last summer. Gerardo Cortez, 26, was charged with six counts of making criminal threats and five counts of falsely reporting an emergency. The complaint also alleges Cortez has a prior conviction of falsely reporting a bomb to an agency or business. No trial date has been set yet. Cortez’s first two arraignment dates – Sept. 19 and Oct. 4 – were postponed at the request of his attorney. Cortez – who has a history of making false Please see page 9

Portly pot belly porcine prevails over politics Neil the Pig stays in Sierra Madre By Terry Miller Some likened it to Charlotte’s Web but a Sierra Madre porcine’s predicament went far and away beyond anything E.B.White could have written or imagined. The whole episode actually started out as a simple request from resident Dr. Katherine Emerson about a rather noisy rooster in a neighbor’s yard that had been disturbing the peace for some time and waking people up at all hours apparently. According to Emerson, she had contacted the city several times and got no results two months ago when she complained about the rooster’s existence… which was in violation of city ordinance. Emerson, who ‘phoned the city on Tuesday last week was told by city Manager Elaine Aguilar that the situation was ‘being handled.’ Within 2 hours of that phone conversation, the Pasadena Humane Society was as Emerson’s door complete with a citation to have her pet pot-belly pig Neil, removed from the city of Sierra Madre limits due to a “code violation.” Emerson told Beacon Media, “ that

With the Gold Line extension from Pasadena to Azusa opening in 2016, officials are already planning the next phase of the project. Speaking at a kickoff breakfast at the Doubletree Hotel in Claremont on Oct. 23, Habib Balian, president of the Metro Gold Line Extension Construction Authority, said Metro is hoping to build an additional 12.5 miles to Azusa. “We’re here to talk about Phase 2B, kicking off the work to have it shovel ready by 2017,” Balian said. “That will allow us to go out to the community, work with the artists, designers and planners to make sure we design and plan a project that can be constructed that is very sensitive to the community, takes advantage of all the opportunities there are in the community, including transit-oriented

Dorothy's Place Pessimistic or Optimistic?

By Dorothy Denne I was sitting, conversing in a friendly manner, with a group peers. (Let's define peers here as folks ranging in age from late 60s to mid 80s). We were expounding on 'the times'. The consensus of opinion seemed to be "Things just ain't what they used to be." That pretty much meant that things are

not as good as they used to be. I ask, were the good old days really that good? Well, depends on how you look at them. Which old days, what about them, and from whose point of view? Most often we tend to overrate and overplay the fun and comfortable aspects of the past. The days now gone were in no way spared the problems we consider horrifically our own, such as pollution, addiction, urban plight or educational turmoil. When we wax nostalgic, we tend to ignore those

things and kind of sweep them under the carpet of oblivion. We embrace that blueskied nostalgia and compare today with it. That brings about a feeling of discontent, a sense of despair that we're living in the worst of worlds. The rosey future we once envisioned, we now see filled with apocalyptic nightmares. I think if we're going to compare, we need to be realistic. Like, don't compare apples to oranges. Compare the bad of the past with the bad of today. The good with the good. My feeling is we will come out relatively even. How many times since Dickens wrote it have we heard "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times"? I try to keep that in mind, changing his was to is. Sometimes I'm a pessimist, sometimes an optimist. The difference? Well, a definition I like comes from Chauncey Depew: A pessimist is a man who thinks all women are bad. An optimist is one who hopes they are.

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 de-

partments 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. Another item is the Plan Check and Construction Inspection Work in the Development Services Department - one firm receives $60,000 and another firm receives $240,950. The first thought that comes to mind is couldn't we reduce this cost dramatically if we hired a local in-house resident? All of these items are in the approved budget and anyone may receive this information on line, or at the City Hall Counter or at the Library. These suggestions are not complete and maybe you might have others. The only question that remains is, "Will the City change their thinking and reprogram how they spend the money that they receive from the taxpayers and stop the practice of increasing the taxes at every turn?" Sierra Madre Watchman

Dear Editor: Just want to say my friends and I really enjoy the paper! You certainly have been busy with it, too! Terry, I loved your column about your frustrated efforts in accessing The Beatles. I was a huge Beatlemaniac, and was fortunate enough to have seen them all 4 times at the Hollywood Bowl with all the other screamers!

My best friend was going to marry Paul, and George was my future hubby. Of course, we hated Yoko for breaking up John & Cyn! Glad to know from your comments on her that she seems like a nice person. Those were fun teenage times. I think I knew (and still do know) almost all the songs on the early albums by heart, but then college and career sort

of interrupted, and I lost touch with the later songs after Sgt. Pepper. I try to always catch a show where Paul is featured, and last saw him on the Stephen Colbert Report. That was a fantastic show, with such a small audience, and Colbert being a big fan. Paul certainly still has his rapier wit! Darlene Papa Lifeline for Pets

Making a difference, one pet at a time... It takes someone who cares As part of our continuing desire to focus on those in our community who care for unwanted animals, we are highlighting here the work that animal rescue organizations and individuals do in helping homeless pets find homes.

It takes a rescuer Arroyo of Pasadena by Darlene Papa Lifelineforpets.org

Multiple Choice Question: Which pets are often passed over and either languish in nokill shelters or are euthanized for no good reason? a. adults & seniors; b. special needs; c. black & dark-colored; Answer: Yes, you knew it--ALL of them! Browse the websites of shelters and rescue organizations, or attend an adoption event, and you'll see. Take the example of adult and senior pets. Sure, people love the puppies and kittens, but they usually have no trouble finding homes. Look into the eyes of an older or senior dog or cat, sitting in their kennel or cage and watch those tails wag and those ears perk up when you sweet-talk them. All these seniors ask for is a caring home to live out their final years. Lovely Lena is one senior cat who would greatly benefit from a quiet home. She is a little shy, but with patience she will blossom. Or, there is Ziggy, a gorgeous longhair cat, very friendly and loving--just a bit bossy! Who will take the challenge? Who will adopt a senior? The pets with special needs are the most difficult to adopt. Yet, many of them need very little work. You may recall the article on the little dog, Carlin, who died needlessly from Parvo because he had been abandoned. Take the case of sweet Tucker, a young tuxedo cat with FIV. Because he can be contagious to other cats, he must stay indoors and be the only kitty. Other than that, he is a friendly and loving little guy, who still gets a little scared from his early life on the streets. Or, consider kitty Natalie, with one eye. She is healthy, copes very well, loves to cuddle, and needs no meds. Then, there is

Boy Boo, a black cat who has a mild case of cerebral hypoplasia, which just means his back end flops down at times, but no meds are needed. Thereʼs tiny chihuahua Paco, all of 5 pounds, 7 years old, rather shy, and chases the kitties. However, he is really a loving little soul. With the right conditions he can thrive! Who will take the challenge? Who will adopt a pet with special needs? Besides being a senior or having a special need, some pets have the additional setback of having been born a dark color. People just pass them up in favor of more “showy” colors. Ask any rescue or shelter person and they will agree. We are trying hard to get the word out there that the dark cats and dogs are just like any other pet, perhaps even more so, because the black coats can be beautifully silky, soft, and shiny! There is young Scout, all black and very skittish--a double whammy. What about two black cats named Elvis and Priscilla, who are both absolutely stunning! Who will take the challenge? Who will adopt a black or dark colored pet? Of course, it is our hope that no animal is left behind, waiting in shelters, or euthanized. They ALL deserve a happy, forever home. Maybe someday the question will be: Which pets are adopted FIRST? Answer: SENIORS, SPECIAL NEEDS, AND BLACK ones! Will YOU take the challenge? Note: All animals above may be found at www.lifelineforpets.org. However, there are many other shelters and rescues, along with the Humane Society and Animal Control sites, where similar cases await a loving home.

Monrovia Wildcats trample La Cañada 77-0 It was most likely a historic game for the Monrovia High football team as the Wildcats scored eight first half touchdowns and trampled host La Canada High, 77-0, on Oct. 24. The weirdest thing about scoring the eight touchdowns was that the Wildcats picked up just 182 yards offensively in the first two quarters. Monrovia coach Ryan Maddox was happy for his team to come out on top. “You just want to see us get better each week,” Maddox said. “A win’s a win. We’re not out here trying to embarrass anybody. But we played well tonight. Our defense played very well. And our offense did well.” After taking an early 7-0 on a blocked punt touchdown by Crayvon Gillespie, Monrovia made it 21-0 with four minutes left

By Shel Segal in the first quarter on two three-yard touchdown runs by running back Kurt Scoby. The Wildcats then closed out the first quarter with a 95-yard interception return for a touchdown by cornerback James Jackson. With Scoby scoring again early in the second quarter – this time from 29 yards out, the Wildcats made it, 42-0, when quarterback Deshawn Potts hit wide receiver Seth Raines with an 18-yard touchdown pass. And after Potts scored on a six-yard touchdown run midway through the second quarter, backup quarterback Asaph Zamora threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Khalil Bradley, taking the 56-0 lead into the locker room at halftime. Avonte Moore, who plays both offensive and defensive tackle for Monrovia, said the Wildcats

played at their best level against the Spartans. “Our running game and everybody just keeping our heads together and not trying to fight them,” Moore said. Linebacker Fernando Rosas agreed. “It feels good,” Rosas said of the win. “The running game was good. Our offensive line was opening up big holes for the running backs and our defense shut them out. I think we could go all the way.” Add linebacker Logan Craig: “It feels excellent. We were on all cylinders. We were rolling. We only punted once. Our defense shut them out again. It’s our third straight shutout.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com. Follow him via Twitter @ segallanded.)

7th Annual Dia de los Muertos Celebration at Live Oak Memorial Park - Nov. 2 A special celebration of Dia de los Muertos, the traditional Hispanic festival of remembrance in which departed spirits feel welcome to hold a reunion with living relatives, will be held from noon to5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2, at Live Oak Memorial Park in Monrovia, Calif. For more information, please call Live Oak Memorial Park at (626) 359-5311. This is the seventh annual event at Live Oak, and it is free and open to the public. Face-painting will begin at 11 a.m., followed by the mass and celebration at noon. Los Angeles attorney Rolando Hidalgo will serve as master of ceremonies. Dia de los Muertos is a festive time of re-

membrance in which families decorate tombs of deceased relatives and install memorial altars where special offerings are laid out with the intention of calling home the spirits of the dead. These altars – which are often set up on a tabletop or on boxes of various sizes – can include everything from tissue-paper dolls, candles and pan de muerto (sugarcoated breads) to photographs, water glasses, musical instruments and a variety of other gifts. The tradition is to include items that would be appealing and comforting to the returning souls. Along with the celebration, face-painting, music and traditional mass, the Dia de

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

Snotty Scotty & Hankies celebrate their silver record anniversary as well as their hair Celebration concert slated for Nov. 2 at T Boyles

I’ve done a few interviews in my time, but nothing, truly zilch can reasonably prepare you for dialogue with the four lads who changed the course of Pasadena’s music scene in the 1970’s and still manage to continue that innovation well into the next century. These well preserved some say pickled - musicians are really wysiwyg. There is no bull here when it comes to Snotty Scotty and his Hankies. Perhaps this is one of the many reasons they’ve outlasted countless other bands in the galaxy. We scheduled our meticulous interview to take place in Steamboat Springs, Colorado - since this is where some of their biggest fans and especially groupies think they have seen them perform. The fact that the Hankies have never done a gig there didn’t really seem to matter, so we spared no expense and flew Scotty and his Hankies on our corporate jet to the great state of Colorado where we spent a couple of hours nattering about a life, liberty and the pursuit of rock and roll – plus we had a couple of beers. While the film crew was setting up the elaborate iPhone camera(s )and getting the lighting just bad enough for a YouTube video, we took time out to get to know the four men who call themselves a lot of funny names but mostly Hankies. Let me first introduce you to the mirthful Hankies: Drummer Tom Behrens is a very nice bloke indeed, the youngest of the foursome who is inspired and also written a song…. kept the band together on more than one occasion with his uncanny diplomacy and darn good meter. I believe he’s

also known as Billy Booger. Guitarist Steve Bruin, a master of his craft, has the unique knack of throwing guitars off Colorado Street Bridge, retrieving them and continue playing the song without skipping a beat… albeit with the help of duct tape. Take that Townsend! Bass player and guitarist Raghead is an enigma. He’s toweringly tall…somewhat similar to Mick Fleetwood methinks…..and hails from Canada where he learned the fine art of guitar juggling which he practiced on Bruin once during a show… The actual concept was grand …each would catch the other’s axe during a duel solo….the execution of this concept however was another matter. A vintage Les Paul was pulled off life support at the end of that set. Last, but by no means least, Scotty… what can we say. His life is a fabled here in Pasadena and has done what he loves all his life - Making music with friends. Drinking beer and making music like “ Let’s get S@#$faced…” one of the band’s finest and most requested hymns if you will. Snotty told us that the biggest influence on his music is Ledbelly (and his days as a Choirboy). Huddie William Ledbetter was an American folk and blues musician, and multi-instrumentalist, notable for his strong vocals which is what Snotty Scotty dearly followed. Luckily, we didn’t have a lot of time to learn of his days as a choir boy other than he could really belt out a Psalm! As far as Steve Bruen,

By Terry Miller it seems his influences range Media “It’s always a party far and wide: from the Who when Snotty Scotty and the to Clapton and Jimi Hendrix boys perform…there is really . Hendrix (as an aside) nothing quite like a Hankies purportedly auditioned for concert…thank God.” the band – according to one While humour has extremely capricious source always been the best medicine, on the Doo Dah Parade route it seems that the Hankies also circa 1971 - but their manager need the occasional mothers apparently opted out of little helper in the form of the having Hendrix in the band amber nectar to help them and said in all seriousness… get through the set list, which “Hey, you play well apparently doesn’t b u t … even exist –

really… are you Experienced?”) The rest, as they say, is history. As the interview progressed, one could see that the passion these fabulously funny and frivolous lads have for their fans, music and their live appearances. “We never really practice…” Steve Bruen told Beacon Media. “ We just get on stage, play what we like. Sometimes it sucks. Sometimes we screw up. But we always have fun,” the energetic guitarist said. Long-time friend and music aficionado, Roger C. Mackenzie told Beacon

n e v e r has and never will evidently. “We play what we want…when we want, ” Scotty quipped. He’s not kidding. One thing’s for sure, the dance floor is always full when they play. Not many bands can say that. One guy who knows the band well asked how the band could screw up so many cover songs so consistently. The Hankies love telling that story as they really do accomplish what they want on stage no matter what – have fun and always entertain.

The conversation turned to Doo Dah and how the classic perennial parody of parades started in Pasadena and what Snotty Scotty and the Hankies’ roll is. Legend has it that it was conceived in in the 1970’s by several friends, including Peter Apanel, Ted Wright, Charles Finnell, among others, having a few beers in Chromo's in Old Pasadena (It wasn’t trendy then), as an impudent change to the traditional strict formality of the Rose Parade. In 1978, January 1 fell on a Sunday, and the Rose Parade, which typically takes place on January 1, but they’ll never do it on a Sunday. So they decided it would be a blast to have an alternate parade on January 1 that year. This was the beginning…Apanal bestowed the title of official Doo Dah Band for all time upon the Hankies ( they even have an inscribed trophy Apanal gave them.) It sits proudly on Scotty’s coffee table which commands that the band is the “official doo dah band for all time….” One of the first parades Doo Dah held was at City Hall. “ God bless Apanal,” said Snotty Scotty….”Apanal was responsible for arranging and producing our record on Doo Dah Records” -the landmark album which will be played by the band ( in the same order as the Vinyl) Saturday at T Boyles celebrating the 25th anniversary of that album. I asked the lads whatever happened to Apanal…. Scotty said “There have been Apanal sightings up north

but that might have been sasquatch …” The room filled with laughter, “ Yes, he is a hairy dude..” quipped Billy Booger. Apanal is obviously near and dear to the Hankies’ collective heart as he helped them get where they are today. Where exactly that is remains to be seen. In 2010 the parade was moved to May 1, and also moved from Old Pasadena to East Pasadena. Apanal gave rights to the parade to the Light Bringer Project where Tom Coston and Patty Hurley manage to pull off a brilliant and truly funny parade year after year. For over 35 years, Snotty Scotty and The Hankies have entertained the world with their unpredictable musical styling. While holding the dubious title of "The Definitive Cover Band" with literally hundreds of songs in their repertoire, Snotty Scotty and The Hankies also play a vast collection of original tunes, including ‘It's a 'Hi, Buddy' World, I Want Tequila, and many more you’ll hear Saturday at T Boyles. Unlike the Mods and Rockers era in the UK…where bands were saying nasty things about one another to get gigs….The Hankies have a different philosophy. Kindness and respect for their fellow musicians. They always give credit to other area local bands like “Horses on Astroturf” …. “a great bunch of guys” says Snotty Scotty. T Boyles Tavern.

APD awarded $74,000 in grants By SHEL SEGAL The Arcadia Police Department has recently been awarded two grants totaling $74,000 from the California Office of Traffic Safety for a year-long program aimed at preventing deaths and injuries on the roadways through the use of DUI checkpoints, specialized enforcement efforts and public awareness, officials said. The department benefits from these grants by enhancing the its current traffic philosophy that embraces educating the community regarding traffic safety and enforcing hazardous traffic violations that place the city’s residents and visitors at risk, officials said. The grants will provide advanced, specialized training for department personnel and will create even more opportunities for officers to be visible throughout the community, Sgt. Brett Bourgeous said.

“This gives us the additional staffing needed to go out and deter people from driving under the influence,” Bourgeous said. “These funds allows us to get out there and expand our efforts and warn the public about the dangers of driving under the influence.” The combined efforts of the Office of Traffic Safety and the Arcadia Police Department should have an impact in reducing the number of people injured or killed in traffic collisions, officials said. 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, officials said. Grant funds will pay for such activities as specialized DUI and drugged driving training, including standardized field sobriety testing, advanced roadside impaired driving enforcement and drug recognition evaluator, officials said. Additional enforcement efforts will be focused on DUI saturation patrols, distracted driving, speed, red light and stop sign violations. The grants will also help pay for warrant service operations targeting multiple DUI offenders, officials said. Funding for this program is from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, officials said.

The calls referred to a suspect with a AK47 rifle threatening to kill students and police. The threats forced searches in several communities. Police departments of the cities of Arcadia, Covina and Monrovia, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s investigators from Temple Station, Major Crimes Bureau, and the Joint Terrorism Task Force launched a joint investigation which resulted to the suspect’s arrest.

PWP customers prepare for launch of a new outage management system Pasadena’s Water and Power (PWP) Department is launching a new, citywide Outage Management System (OMS) in early 2014 that will streamline customer communications and enable more efficient deployment of line personnel during outages, among other improvements. In preparation of the launch, PWP is asking customers to update their emergency telephone numbers by Dec. 15 either online at www. PWPweb.com/OMS, by phone at (626) 744-4005, or by returning the form enclosed with their recent account statement. Once the OMS is in place next year, an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) feature will allow customers to use their phones to report both water and power outages. Customers can also hear status reports on planned and unplanned power outages. Linked with PWP’s existing technology,

including PWP’s customer account system, Geographic Information System (GIS) and power distribution supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system, the OMS will use customers’ phone numbers to quickly pinpoint the most likely location, cause and extent of an outage. Customers will also have the option of speaking to a representative or getting a callback once power has been restored. “PWP is always looking for new ways to enhance customer communications and outage response,” said Eric Klinkner, PWP’s Assistant General Manager. “This system integrates the latest technology to speed troubleshooting and repairs, cut costs and greatly improve service to customers. It is a win-win for everyone.” Currently, information about major power outages or emergencies is available to customers via a remote customer service hotline, at www.PWPweb.com/

emergency, or through PWP’s twitter feed @ PWPNews. While these information channels will remain available to customers next year, the OMS is expected to streamline and quicken the communication process for all outages. “No matter how big or small an outage is, this system will be able to provide an accurate update without the wait,” Klinkner said. “During the 2011 windstorm, we experienced extraordinarily high call volume. This system will help us be more proactive with our communications.” For more information about the new OMS or to update your emergency contact information, visit www.PWPweb.com/OMS or call PWP’s Customer Hotline at (626) 744-4005. All personal information collected by PWP will remain confidential and will only be used by PWP for this program. PWP will never call customers to collect personal information over the phone.

Neil the Pig

21 condors treated for lead poisoning due to hunting

Continued from page 1

law…well, almost. News spread fast… very fast indeed thanks to a handful of Neil’s real friends and his “Facebook friends” who immediately launched a campaign that attracted the attention not only of local media but national news organizations and Facebook friends worldwide. This wasn’t just any old swine story… this was about justice for a long-time resident of the tiny foothill city. After considerable review of the code and fearing a public relations nightmare just in time for Halloween, Sierra Madre officials granted Neil a reprieve and allowed his to remain within city limits as he’s a pot-belly pig and not a “hog” as the ordinance dictates. Sierra Madre Chief of Police, Larry Giannone gave Emerson the good news personally last Wednesday and also attended a special celebration in Memorial Park last Thursday with 30 others who had supported Neil’s cause. The Sierra Madre Weekly ran this on our website when we first got wind of the story” Neil is being evicted from Sierra Madre for being overweight – Now, honestly … what code enforcement officer would issue such a hogwash citation for eviction to Neil’s “parents”? We find it absurd, to say the least that a city like Sierra Madre would attempt to enforce such a stupid ordinance. What if that were the case for homosapians? Half the town would have to be evicted. This has to be the silliest thing Sierra Madre has tried to do since raising the water rates….they must know

21 California condors have been treated for lead poisoning this hunting season in California. Veterinarians at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens say three birds were critically sick when they arrived according to the Associated Press. “They were malnourished, had stopped eating and had a disease that causes the stomach to stop moving food.” According to Dr. Curtis Eng The birds are trapped twice a year to check for lead

poisoning. The condors the lead in carcasses of animals shot by area hunters.

California has a new law ( albeit effective 2019) that will ban lead ammunition.

there will be a HUGE public outcry! Over 160lbs, so what? Neil is a loving kind pig! Kids have grown up with him on Montecito street. Surely our lawmakers can find better things to do with their time! Neil has been living in a front yard behind a white picket fence greeting kids for 17 years. He was adopted by Diane Emerson in 1996 from Pet’s Delight pet store in Monrovia. Her daughter Dr. Katherine Emerson inherited Neil after Diane passed away about six years ago. Neil was apparently in violation of municipal code 08.030, entitled simply “Hogs”. The code prohibits hogs from residing within the city limits. However Neil is actually a pot belly pig, not listed in the code, anywhere. Dr. Emerson said she was

warned if Neil is not removed from the city limits they will proceed with legal action to have him destroyed. A social media campaign which began Tuesday to save Neil on both Facebook and Twitter traveled like an epidemic. Neil’s supporters garnered a huge following which led to the delightfully happy ending and Sierra Madre Police Chief Larry Giannone said that they will NOT pursue any action against Neil. He is free to stay in his home with the Chief’s full support. Emerson said she was glad it’s all over for now but hasn’t ruled out a career in politics for Neil. Emerson added that whatever Neil and she could do to support the local police and fire departments in Sierra Madre, they will.

Breeders' Cup World Championships Continued from page 1

Kiaran McLaughlin – Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin reported that both Dancing House and Sky Painter will run in the Juvenile Fillies Turf on Friday. Dancing House had been pre-entered in the Juvenile Fillies as well. Dancing House, Sky Painter and Dance Card departed their training base in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., on Sunday morning for California. Todd Pletcher – Recent Kelso Stakes winner Graydar will not make the Breeders’ Cup because of a quarter crack in his left front hoof. Graydar had been pre-entered in the Classic and Dirt Mile. “We’re disappointed,” trainer Todd Pletcher said. “Graydar had been training extremely well and I thought we got the perfect comeback effort from him in the Kelso.” Manny Azpurua said that the Rontos Racing Stable’s Street Girl would run in Distaff rather than the Filly & Mare Sprint for which she also had been pre-entered. “She was third in a Grade I in her last race and she worked well before coming here,” Azpurua said as he watched Street Girl jog on the main track at Santa Anita for the first time after arriving Sunday. Street Girl worked a best of 33 4f in 46 at Gulfstream Park on Friday (Oct. 25). Both of her victories have come in two-turn races on dirt and in her most recent start finished third, beaten two lengths, behind Distaff rival Close Hatches in the Cotillion Stakes at Parx.

Ron Ellis – Centralintelligence worked 4f in 48 3/5 breezing for the Dirt Mile Monday at Betfair Hollywood Park to the satisfaction of the trainer. “He went just easy,” Ellis said after the drill under exercise rider Baltazar Contreras. Patrick Biancone – Diamond Bachelor was entered in the Juvenile for his first start on dirt. The colt, whose three starts have all been on turf, had also been pre-entered in the Juvenile Turf. “The owners decided,” explained Biancone. “They're Americans. They want to run on dirt.” Diamond Bachelor, who has two firsts and a second in his three grass starts, is owned by Mr. & Mrs. Kin Hui of Los Angeles in partnership with Susan Magnier of Ireland and Robert Trussell of Kentucky. What does Biancone expect from the War Front colt in his dirt debut? “I think I'll have to wait until Saturday for that answer,” Biancone said. Peter Eurton – Dance With Fate was entered in the Juvenile. Runner-up in both the Del Mar Futurity and FrontRunner Stakes at Santa Anita, the Two Step Salsa colt was also pre-entered in the Juvenile Turf. Ian Wilkes – Janis Whitham’s defending Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Fort Larned worked 5f over a fast track at Churchill Downs Monday morning in 1:01 4/5 with jockey Brian Hernandez Jr. up. Mike Hushion – Trainer Mike Hushion’s

Breeders’ Cup starters, Artemis Agrotera and The Lumber Guy, are flying from New York to California on a Tuesday morning flight from Long Island MacArthur Airport. Charles LoPresti – Morton Fink’s Wise Dan, the reigning Horse of the Year in North America and defending champion in the Mile, galloped on the training track at Keeneland Monday morning and will have a similar exercise tomorrow morning according to trainer Charles LoPresti. “He will train in the morning and then van to Louisville to catch the plane to California,” LoPresti said. LoPresti is scheduled to leave Lexington at 7 in the morning and be at Santa Anita when Wise Dan arrives. Mark Casse – Trainer Mark Casse will run Conquest Stables’ undefeated My Conquestadory in the Juvenile Fillies Turf, which was first preference in the pre-entries, instead of the Juvenile Fillies. “The more and more we thought about it, I think she has a real shot to win that race and still have the chance to be the champion 2-year-old filly,” the five-time Sovereign Award-winning trainer said. “The only other reason is that we haven’t had enough time to train her properly on dirt. So we’re going to dance with the one that brought us.” Laugh Track, who was pre-entered in the Dirt Mile and the Sprint, will line up in the gate for the Sprint.

“He’s not going to get in the (Dirt) Mile,” Casse said. “Three-quarters (of a mile) may be too short for him, but if we get a hot pace they may collapse up front and that might set it up for him. I couldn’t be happier with the way he’s coming up to the race.” Bill Mott – Royal Delta, Close Hatches, Emollient and Ron the Greek departed Long Island MacArthur Airport at approximately 10:30 a.m. Eastern, Monday. Flat Out, who had been training in Saratoga, arrived in California on Sunday. Buff Bradley – Defending Filly & Mare Sprint champion Groupie Doll jogged 6f and gallop 1 1/4m in her first day at the track after working 4f in 47 2/5 on Saturday at Santa Anita under exercise rider Jada Schlenk. “It is always good when her rider is happy and pleased,” said trainer Buff Bradley, who indicated Groupie Doll would follow

a similar schedule the rest of the week. “She won’t go to the gate, but we may take her to the paddock one or two times.” Steve Asmussen – Trainer Steve Asmussen sent two of his three Breeders’ Cup runners out for workouts Monday morning at Santa Anita. Justin Phillip, looking to improve on his fifth-place effort in the Sprint last year, worked 4f in 48 3/5, while 2012 Turf Sprint runner-up Unbridled’s Note covered the same distance in 49 1/5 in preparation for his second try at a Breeders’ Cup victory. Peter Miller – Reneesgotzip will run in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint, said trainer Peter Miller Monday morning from his stable at Hollywood Park. The 4yo daughter of City Zip was pre-entered in the Turf Sprint and the Sprint. She will be making her second appearance in the Turf Sprint, having finished

third in 2012. Mike Pender – Trainer Mike Pender confirmed Monday morning that his two Breeders' Cup horses, pre-entered in the Turf Sprint and the Mile, would go in the Turf Sprint. Bob Baffert – Trainer Bob Baffert worked five of his eight Breeders’ Cup horses Monday morning at Santa Anita. He liked all the moves. D. Wayne Lukas – The Hall of Fame trainer wrapped up serious preparation for All Cash on Monday with a 4f workout in 49 2/5. The 2yo son of English Channel is set to run in the Juvenile Turf. Richard Mandella – The Hall of Fame trainer brought his Distaff starter Beholder to the racetrack at 7:45 and had exercise rider David Nuesch put her though a 4f drill. Mandella caught her in 49 2/5, but the clockers gave her an official time of 49 1/5. She did it with her ears up.

Toltec descent to speak at Santa Anita Church - Nov. 1 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.

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.

Union Station Homeless Services serves up Motown Magic at annual event

In a night filled with Motown melodies and musical history, Rachael Worby waxed poetic about the groundbreaking record label’s origins in Detroit, the MUSE/ique singers harmonized beautifully, Ellis Hall channeled Stevie Wonder, and surprise guest Allison Iraheta of American Idol fame wowed the crowd with a surprise performance. The concert, which was staged for An Evening for the Station, a benefit for Union Station Homeless Services, brought together a diverse crowd of music lovers and friends of Union Station at Pandora on Green in Pasadena. Rachael Worby of MUSE/ique took the crowd on a walk down musical history lane, pausing at the often-ignored milestones and detours that were American race relations in the 1960s. She also drew parallels between the work she does with MUSE/ique and the work Union Station does to help people improve their lives. “Union Station makes this city a better place,” said Rachael Worby. “They raise up the dignity and humanity of our community as a whole. As an orchestra founded on the idea of deriving inspiration and imagination from an enlivened civic landscape, we are deeply moved and inspired by their mission. It is an honor to partner with them for this event.” Marvin Gross, CEO of Union Station, had a few thoughts on the power of music. "It's thrilling to witness the way powerful music can bring people together

in support of a great cause,” said Gross. “We're tremendously grateful to Rachael Worby and MUSE/IQUE for their support of our work to help homeless folks rebuild their lives." Local L.A. artist Allison Iraheta, who skyrocketed to fame after attention-getting performances on season

eight of American Idol, sang a heart-wrenching rendition of “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” that changed the song from celebration of love to tortured lament. Ellis Hall, formerly of Tower of Power, channeled Stevie Wonder at his best with his own, true-to-theoriginal version of “You Are the Sunshine of My Life.”

Sierra Madre Search and Rescue The Sierra Madre Search and Rescue (SMSR) Team responded on seven search and rescue calls in September. With schools back in session the tempo of rescues is beginning to drop after a busy summer. As part of the larger local search and rescue structure, Sierra Madre Search and Rescue often responds to assist other agencies and SAR teams on incidents. One of these mutual aid assists is detailed below along with the search for a missing hiker. Stranded Hiker, Eaton Canyon: The Altadena Mountain Rescue Team (AMRT) contacted SMSR at 2:28 p.m. on September 11th to assist in the rescue of a hiker stranded on a cliff in Eaton Canyon. SMSR and AMRT personnel established a command post at the entrance to Eaton Canyon and assembled rescue teams to access the subject. The initial rescuers on-scene determined that the hiker was uninjured but was stranded approximately 200 above the canyon floor and unable to safely ascend or descend from his position. Rescuers quickly determined that accessing the subject from above by lowering a rescuer to his position and then lowering both the rescuer and hiker to the canyon floor would be the safest course of action. This type of rescue scenario is one that members of all the SAR teams regularly practice. Familiarity with working together and the topography of the canyon allowed rescuers to execute the plan safely and efficiently. Hikers are reminded that getting off trail into the vertical or near-vertical areas of our mountains can be very risky. It is often very easy to climb up into an area and

find that it is not possible to safely ascend or descend. Avoid placing yourself in this situation if at all possible, but if you do, to avoid the risk of serious injury or death, do not hesitate to request assistance if necessary. The rescue was secured after all personnel were out of the field at 6 p.m. Missing Hiker, Clamshell/Monrovia Peak area: SMSR was paged at 8:56 a.m on September 22nd to search for a missing hiker in the area east of Chantry Flat near Monrovia Peak. Crews initially staged at the upper helicopter pad at Chantry Flat for potential helicopter insertion in the search area. Information associated with cell phone information placed the hiker in the so-called Clamshell area high above Monrovia. Due to aircraft availability and timing, field crews made the long drive into the area via fireroad. Teams hiked into the area to check trails

and the register on Clamshell Peak. No sign of the hiker was located and the field crews returned to Sierra Madre. Late in the afternoon, the hiker was able to contact his family and report that he had been able to get back to town safely. Search efforts were cancelled at that point and the operation was secured at 5 p.m. For over 60 years the all-volunteer Sierra Madre Search and Rescue team has been responding to calls for help in the local mountains and beyond. Funded entirely by private donations, SMSR provides a range of public programs on wilderness safety in addition to its search and rescue activities. The Team never charges for any of its services.

development. We’re doing all that thinking well in advance of the project.” Bailan said he expects that phase of the project to be completed by 2022. He added the extension is good economically for all the cities along the route. “They’re huge for rejuvenating the cities all along the Foothill extension,” he said. “These are towns that have historic downtowns that were here since Henry Huntington built the railroad, that were formed along all of these stations and had the cities turned their backs on since the railroads went away. We’re going to rebuild all that with this transit system. We’ll have an opportunity to encourage transitoriented development,

roughly raising billions of dollars for these cities long term.” In addition, Balian said while building the Gold Line is expensive, it is worth it in terms of employment. “This project will have 6,000 jobs in total and about 2,500 in construction alone,” he said. “This project will cost about $950 million all the way to Montclair. The money is to be determined. It needs to be designed and planned so we can compete for money in 2016. It’s expected there will be another potential sales tax measure on the ballot sometime in the future and we’d like to be included in that.” Balian also said

the train will be an inexpensive, convenient way to travel throughout the San Gabriel Valley. “People are looking for an alternative,” he said. “They’ve never had an alternative before. Metrolink is not convenient for everyone. It’s expensive and the timing isn’t always right. It doesn’t take you to Pasadena. It’s infrequent and not everyone wants to go to downtown L.A. This is pretty regular service, running every seven to 10 minutes to provide you with a way that is guaranteed to get you to your office or the Westside or wherever you’re going.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com).

The Fine Arts Club of Pasadena Celebrates century of promoting visual art and music

Aspiring artists and musicians in the Greater Pasadena area have been supported by The Fine Arts Club of Pasadena for 100 years. A gala blacktie event celebrating the organization’s founding in November, 1913, was held at Caltech’s Athenaeum on Friday, October 4, 2013. Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard was among the dignitaries celebrating the organization’s Centennial. He presented The Fine Arts Club of Pasadena with a Commendation from the city, and thanked the organization for its accomplishments and its support of the Arts in Pasadena. The primary purpose of The Fine Arts Club of Pasadena is “to encourage the creation, execution and appreciation of work in all branches of the fine arts; to promote enjoyment of the arts, and to grant awards and other financial aid to deserving artists.” Over the years scholarship awards have

been given to those talented in varied musical instruments, voice, drama, and all genres of art, including glass and jewelry art. The mission of The Fine Arts Club of Pasadena is grounded in the belief that the arts are vital to our culture and artists deserve support. By serving its mission, the organization hopes to enrich the cultural life of our community and to encourage each artist’s unique individual expression. The festive Centennial evening began with an art exhibition during the reception, provided by three of the Club’s members – Susanne Belcher, Patricia O’Hearn, and John Selleck. Each artist displayed examples of his and her unique talent. The evening’s performing artist was award-winning pianist, composer and arranger Paul Anthony Romero. Accompanying him were

Angelique Lucia (soprano), Stefan Smith (viola), Todd Stroik (baritone) and Brock Summers (saxophone). Their performances included a century of melodies in honor of the Fine Arts Club, and an original composition by Mr. Romero written for the occasion. During the evening the Fine Arts Club President Robert A. Farley inducted Stephen McCurry, Executive Director of the Pasadena Conservatory of Music, as an Honorary Member. On display and included in the dessert was a three-foot tall Centennial Cake – a long cylinder of cake that when sliced revealed concentric circles, like the growth rings of a tree, created by Paul Gauweiler, and referred to as the King’s Baumkuchen Cake.

in a church. Outside the church half a dozen PETA members protested the Tournament of Roses for allowing a SeaWorld Float this year which they say promotes animal abuse. Pasadena PD kept a watchful eye on the protestors who were peaceful and not disruptive of any of the ceremonies. The announcement concludes a month-long process that began with more than 900 Pasadenaarea young women who participated in the Royal Court tryouts. The ceremony was emceed by CNN’s “New Day” news anchor Michaela Pereira. About 500 people attended the ceremony which lasted approximately 2 hours. Rose Queen Ana and the six Rose Princesses will make over 100 community and media appearances, culminating with the 125th Rose Parade® presented by Honda and the 100th Rose Bowl Game® presented by VIZIO. “Rose Queen Ana Marie Acosta and the six Rose Princesses for 2014

are exceptional young women,” said Tournament of Roses President Scott Jenkins, who presented the crown to the queen. “In their roles representing the Tournament of Roses and the City of Pasadena, the Royal Court members are symbols of hope for the future, and I know they will inspire many young girls during the next few months.” The Rose Queen and Royal Court were selected based upon a combination of qualities, including public speaking ability, poise, academic achievement and community involvement. During the coronation ceremony, Jenkins presented Queen Ana with a Mikimoto crown featuring more than 600 cultured pearls and six carats of diamonds. Prior to the public event, all members of the Royal Court received a pearl necklace from Mikimoto. Rose Queen Ana Marie Acosta, 17, lives in Altadena and attends Polytechnic School. Ana is the captain of her school’s varsity equestrian team and a cabinet member of its Girls Service League. She also serves on Poly’s Ambassadors

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.
