which was closed to the public for a private gathering of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department employees, Lt. Janice Banks of the Sheriff’s Parks Bureau said. The two bags stolen belonged to offduty deputies assigned to the sheriff’s Palmdale Station. Sandoval was identified via a surveillance photo obtained at a store where a credit card taken in the theft was used within hours of the

crime, officials said. A photograph of Sandoval, whose identity was not known at the time, along with a female accomplice was first published by sheriff’s officials Oct. 17. A 17-year-old girl has been arrested in connection with the crime, as well as the identification of Sandoval, officials from the Sheriff’s Parks Bureau said in a written statement. In hopes of tracking

down the remaining suspect and getting back the stolen items, the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriff’s, which hosted the September event at Raging Waters, has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Sandoval. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Banks at 661-294-3544, or 213-276-8108.

San Gabriel Valley Energy Wise Partnership offers free led holiday light exchanges On Friday, November 22, the San Gabriel Valley Energy Wise Partnership (SGVEWP) will launch its Holiday Light Exchange at the Friday Night Family Festival. This event will offer San Gabriel Valley residents that are Southern California Edison customers the opportunity to exchange an old incandescent holiday light string for a new ultra-efficient light string. The event in Monrovia will be the first of nine similar exchanges that will take place at various locations in the San Gabriel Valley during the months of November and December. SGVEWP is an alliance between the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (COG), Southern California Edison (SCE) and Southern California Gas Company (SCG) that is funded by California utility customers and administered by SCE under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission. The SGVEWP is providing this free service to educate residents about the benefits of energy efficiency while reducing their energy usage this holiday season. Light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, are small light sources that are illuminated by the movement of electrons through a semiconductor material. LEDs are exceptionally energy efficient and may use up to 90 percent less energy than a comparable incandescent bulb. The amount of electricity consumed by just

one 7-watt incandescent bulb could power 140 LEDs— equivalent to four 10-foot LED strings. These Energy Star qualified lights can also last up to 10 times longer than traditional incandescent strands, are cool to the touch, reduce the risk of fire, and come in a variety of colors, shapes, and lengths. San Dimas Councilmember, Denis Bertone, Chair of the COG’s Energy, Environment, and Natural Resources Committee said, “In 2008, the COG entered into a partnership with SCE to bring knowledge and resources to our community regarding the importance of energy efficiency. The LED Holiday Light Exchange is a perfect example of how this innovative collaboration benefits our cities, residents, and the natural environment all at once.” The exceptional qualities of LED lights make the Holiday Light Exchange a unique opportunity to introduce residents to the benefit from the light strands’ durability and efficiency, while improving the environment. The dates and locations for the exchange are as follows: Friday, Nov. 22 Friday Night Family Festival City of Monrovia (S. Myrtle Ave./Colorado Blvd.) 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1 Farmers Market City of Alhambra (Monterey/Bay State St.) 8:30 a.m.. – 1:00

Each qualifying customer can exchange one string of lights per household, while supplies last. For additional information, please contact the San Gabriel Valley COG at (626) 457-1800.

DEA's drug take-back Continued from page 1 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.

A total of 647,211 pounds (324 tons) of prescription medication was collected nationwide during this most recent event. When added to the collections from DEA’s previous six Take-Back events, more than 3.4 million pounds (1,733 tons) of prescription medications have been removed from circulation nationwide. Many collection sites provided “drive-thru” service to provide convenient access for residents. Community groups and coalitions also joined with local law enforcement agencies to provide drug awareness literature and community resource information. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Prescription drugs that languish in home medicine cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high;

more Americans (6.8 million) currently abuse prescription drugs than the number of those using cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens like LSD, and inhalants combined, according to the 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. Take-Back Days are presently needed because the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) as originally written didn’t provide a way for patients, caregivers, and pet owners to dispose of such controlled substance (CS) medications such as painkillers, sedatives, tranquilizers, and stimulants. People were flushing their old meds down the toilet or throwing them in the trash, but in recent years medicines have been found in the nation’s water supplies,

and medications were being retrieved from the trash by those who would abuse or sell them. To give people a more environmentally responsible and secure way to dispose of their meds, DEA launched its first Take-Back event in September 2010. Four days later, Congress passed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the CSA to allow people and, in some instances, long term care facilities to regularly, conveniently, and safely dispose of their CS medications by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. DEA is in the process of finalizing regulations to implement the Act. The national results of the last Take-Back Day’s to include collection amounts by state can be seen at www.dea. gov.

West Covina man jumps to death from helicopter A West Covina man jumped to his death from a helicopter Tuesday in Orange County Gregory McFadden, 61, jumped out of the helicopter after he opened the door of the chopper above the water in Balboa Chuck Street, a longtime helicopter pilot and local traffic reporter, said in published reports that

his son, Corbin, was flying the helicopter. KCAL-TV reported that his son grew suspicious when McFadden asked the pilot to fly higher and higher. When the helicopter neared the pier, McFadden took his seat belt off and began to open the door. Street said his son grabbed McFadden but it was too late.

to provide the highest possible funding level for the Earthquake Hazard Program and the Global Seismic Network in their 2015 budget request. Over the past several years, some in Congress and the Administration have targeted the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program for budget cuts — including to the early warning system still being developed by scientists in Southern California. For prototypes like the U.S. Geological Survey’s “Shake Alert,” which was partially designed by the USGS in Pasadena, budget constraints have slowed its implementation. Such an early warning system would be enormously helpful in providing residents and first responders with advance notice that could help avert major infrastructure damage by shutting down mechanical systems like mass transit and elevators and save lives in the event of a major earthquake. In the letter, the Members write: “As you work with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to craft its fiscal year 2015 budget request, we urge you to support the Earthquake Hazards Program and the Global Seismic Network at the highest possible level. As Members of Congress representing districts in the United States at risk from earthquake hazards, we are concerned with the deteriorating fiscal

health of these programs. These modest investments will ensure USGS is able to continue its crucial mission of mitigating against earthquake hazards…. Earthquakes are a serious threat to the United States, with over 75 million people in 39 states living in areas of significant earthquake risk … There have been a number of devastating and costly earthquakes around the world in recent years, and it is a matter of when, not if, such an event occurs in the United States. Therefore, it is critical we maintain our vigilance and expertise in earthquake research. The USGS provides seismic monitoring and scientific programs that serve the entire nation.” “Every few months, we are reminded about Los Angeles’ and California’s vulnerability with tremors and small earthquakes rattling our homes and businesses. It is critical that the United States maintains its vigilance and expertise in earthquake preparedness, and I am hopeful that when the House and Senate meet to work out the appropriations bills, we will be able to secure funding for this vital program,” said Rep. Adam Schiff, who led the letter to the White House. “When we consider the lives that would be spared if we have just a little bit of warning before the next big one, it’s a very small but prudent investment.”

Low voter turnout in Baldwin Park and West Covina The three candidates endorsed by the San Gabriel Teachers Association were elected to the San Gabriel Unified School District Board of Education in Tuesday’s election. Gary Thomas Scott led all vote getters with 29.58 percent of the vote, Philip Hu received 28.96 percent of the vote and Ken Tcheng got 23.93 percent of the vote. Not making the cut was Maribel Arreola-Gonzalez, who received 17.63 percent of the vote. Tcheng said he is excited to now be on the board. “I’m really happy with the result,” he said. “I’m happy and excited to get rolling. Priority number one is to get our arms around the local control funding formula to determine what our funding numbers look like so we can operate the district in a sound way.” Hu, who was re-elected to the board, said it’s even sweeter the second time around. “I am really honored and humbled to be elected,” he said. “I think re-election

by Shel Segal says something. When you’re re-elected it means the community trusts you, so I’m thrilled.” He added he has two priorities when the board reconvenes. “First, is to ensure that everything coming down from the state – the common core curriculum and the local control funding formula – is implemented and handled correctly. The second is that we have to look for new sources of funding.” Scott said that while he battled through a tough campaign, it was worth it. “This has been a really focused effort for the last for months,” he said. “Sometimes nice guys finish last. But people looked at the challenges coming ahead and they got it right. We just went on and walked and knocked and talked one vote at a time and it worked.” IN OTHER ELECTION NEWS: In a surprisingly highly contentious battle for control of the San Gabriel County Water Board of Directors,

Eric Chan, Sabino Cici and Charles De La Torre were elected to the board defeating Harry Baldwin, Piper Fogle and Jo Ann Angela Lewy. Chan received 20.06 percent of the vote, Cici got 17.22 percent of the vote and De La Torre garnered 17.02 percent of the vote. In the battle for West Covina City Council with nine candidates for three seats, James Toma, Corey Warshaw and Lloyd Johnson all ran successful campaigns. Toma got 19.43 percent of the vote, Warshaw received 13.89 percent of the vote, while Johnson got 12.28 percent of the vote. In the race for Baldwin Park City Council, Cruz Baca and Susan Rubio were elected as members, with 40.21 percent of the vote and 38.92 percent of the vote, respectively. Falling short was Natalie Ybarra, who had 20.87 percent of the vote. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

sights and striking scenery,” said Kristin Bachochin, executive director of the Amgen Tour of California and senior vice president of AEG Sports. “We’re confident our worldwide audience will enjoy everything next year’s race has to offer – from epic climbs to rolling hills and thrilling finishes; it’s a testament to California’s iconic terrain.” The first day of racing will begin and finish in the state’s Capital of Sacramento, which previously hosted 2009’s prologue as well as the stage finishes in 2007, 2008, 2010 & 2011. “The City of Sacramento could not be more proud to host the Amgen Tour of California and Stage 1 to kick off race festivities for such a distinguished group of athletes,” said Kevin Johnson, mayor of Sacramento. “There is no better way to start the race’s route through California’s iconic landmarks, attractions and scenery than in the state’s capital city.” The following day, the Individual Time Trial (Stage 2) will see racers competing against the clock in the former gold rush city of Folsom, which makes its race debut this year. For Stage 3, the peloton will return to California’s third largest city, San Jose (the only city to have participated in all nine editions of the race), for a stage start before traveling more than 50 miles north, gaining altitude as the route winds up Mt. Diablo for mountaintop finish at the famed summit for the second consecutive race. The arts community of Monterey, which last hosted the race in 2006, will be the setting for the Stage 4 start. From there, the race will traverse approximately 100 miles south to finish the day in the seaside village of Cambria, which also makes its race debut in 2014. Stage 5 will kick off in the “Clam Capital of the World,” Pismo Beach, where riders will be treated to sights of the city’s famous sand dunes for

the first time. Additionally, sweeping ocean views will provide the perfect backdrop for racers and spectators alike as the route continues south to the American Riviera-like town of Santa Barbara for the Stage 5 finish. Santa Clarita, which is home to a number of athletic champions such as swimmer Anthony Ervin and track star Allyson Felix, will host the Stage 6 start, before riders head to Mountain High for another mountaintop finish. The peloton will return to Santa Clarita for the Stage 7 start and will finish that day in the historic town of Pasadena. The eighth and final stage of the 2014 Amgen Tour of California will start and finish in the title sponsor’s home of Thousand Oaks, which previously hosted finishes in 2010 &2011. “The Amgen Tour of California is always a challenging stage race that tests even the best cyclists in the world,” said pro cyclist Freddie Rodriguez, of the Jelly Belly Cycling Team presented by Kenda. “It’s a race I look forward to, and am sure the 2014 race will not disappoint!” Amgen returns as the race’s title sponsor for the ninth consecutive year, continuing to leverage the event to raise awareness of the important resources available to people affected by cancer— from prevention through survivorship—through its Breakaway from Cancer® initiative.

Fall escape to Catalina Island By Greg Aragon Catalina is not just an island paradise; it’s a very close island paradise, which makes it a perfect day or weekend getaway. In fact, at only 24 miles across the sea from Long Beach, the place can be reached by boat in one hour. With this in mind, a friend and I recently escaped to the island for a memorable fall Getaway. Our journey began in downtown Long Beach, where we picked up tickets from Catalina Express (www. catalinaexpress.com) and boarded one of the company’s sleek, catamaran-styled vessels for an hour journey across the Catalina Channel. Featuring comfortable indoor and outdoor seating, lots of big windows and a full bar and snack shop, the boat makes for a fun trip. Highlights of the crossing include views of the legendary Queen Mary, the giant, white geodesic Carnival Cruise ship dome (former home to Howard Hughes’ “Spruce

Goose”), and schools of playful dolphins that usually follow the boat into Catalina Harbor. When we reached the city of Avalon, the captain anchored beside hundreds of colorful boats and yachts, and schools of bright orange Garibaldi – the California state fish. From here we walked to our room at the Aurora Hotel & Spa (www. AuroraCatalina.com). Located a block from the beach, the Aurora combines a sleek and modern décor with a cozy Catalina bed and breakfast feel. Our spacious suite featured a large Jacuzzi tub and shower, a comfy king bed, lots of couch seating, flat screen TV, small fridge, free high-speed internet and a free continental breakfast. Once acquainted with our room, we walked a few minutes for lunch at the Descanso Beach Club (www. visitcatalinaisland.com). Located on the waterfront, near the island’s historic Casino Building, the club serves casual fare and signature cocktails, with incredible ocean-front views. For our lunch we enjoyed a plate of shrimp, Caesar salad, chicken sandwiches and beer,

while watching sunbathers and scuba divers a few yards away. After lunch we strolled through town to Catalina Sea Spa (www.catalinaseaspa. com). Along the way we passed the old wooden pier, charming island shops and eateries, and we waved at the ubiquitous and colorful golf carts that crisscross Avalon. At Catalina Sea Spa, we met owner Michelle Bray, who told us about her company, which offers full service spa treatments in the heart of

island paradise, and is the only spa to offer Ashiatsu, a unique form of Japanese barefoot massage. Spa services also include hot stone, Thai, Swedish, pregnancy, and Lomi-Lomi, a relaxing Hawaiian massage. For our treatments, we had two rejuvenating Swedish rubs. Mine was so soothing, I found myself napping on the beach afterwards. When I woke up, I was ready for dinner at Steve’s Steakhouse (www. stevessteakhouse.com).

A local favorite featuring steaks, seafood and lamb, Steve’s is located on the 2nd floor of an oceanfront building, with beautiful panoramic harbor views. Our meal began with Oysters Rockefeller, with fresh and hot with spinach, cheese and spices; jumbo shrimp cocktail with spicy sauce and lemon; and Caesar salad. While eating, we met owner Steve Bray, who helped us choose a main course. I went with a big juicy T-bone steak, with rice

pilaf and veggies, and my friend had a succulent local swordfish with mashed potatoes. After dinner, we walked along Avalon’s wooden pier, watching seals and fish swim in the clear water and the sun go down behind the casino building. We concluded the evening with a couple Maui Mai Tai’s at Luau Larry’s bar. For more information on visiting Catalina Island, visit: www.CatalinaChamber.com.

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

Why Classic?

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

“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.

able to continue to collect usage data.

Compliance through great patient care

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.

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

Interested in learning more? www.classicsleepcare.com

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

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.

California adopts first math framework aligned with Common Core California teachers have new guidance from the State Board of Education as they continue implementing the California Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today. The State Board of Education today approved the new Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools, which provides instructional guidance for teachers and administrators. The Framework provides grade-level explanations and examples of the standards for mathematics practice and content, integrating mathematical thinking and conceptual understanding with procedural skills and application. “The new Framework gives educators important new guidance and resources to teach students step-by-step the mathematics knowledge and skills they need to graduate ready for college and careers,” Torlakson said. “From teaching strategies to evaluation criteria, it will help teachers as they work to modernize education in California.” For example, the Frame-

work provides guidance for educators on a range of topics, including instructional strategies to strengthen learning for every student, the qualities of effective professional development, technology for instruction and learning, criteria for evaluating instructional materials, assessment to improve instruction and learning, and inclusion of financial literacy into math instruction. “The new Framework helps teachers to have students apply mathematics to new and different content areas and contexts,” State Board of Education President Michael Kirst said. “The Framework moves beyond students just memorizing rules to solve math problems by asking them to make complex inferences, estimates, and models that are part of the Common Core.” The Framework provides a context for implementing the California Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, which were first adopted by California in 2010, and then modified in 2013. Standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each

subject in each grade. Frameworks provide guidance for implementing the standards. Common Core is a state-led effort adopted by 45 states, so that all children—no matter where they come from or where they live—will receive a world-class education that is consistent from school to school and state to state. The newly adopted Framework was created by a committee of educators and math experts, most of whom are teachers in California classrooms, under the guidance of the state Instructional Quality Commission. The draft Framework was informed by public comment, before being presented to the State Board of Education for adoption. The Instructional Quality Commission unanimously recommended the Framework to the State Board of Education for adoption. The Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools is currently available in draft form on the California Department of Education’s Web site and will soon be updated to reflect its final adoption by the State Board of Education.

Huntington Memorial Hospital will “Shine a Light on Lung Cancer” - Nov. 17 Huntington Memorial Hospital will host a lighting ceremony on Sunday, November 17, as part of a national campaign to raise awareness for lung cancer. The ceremony is one of many “Shine a Light on Lung Cancer” events taking place across the country in November in partnership with Lung Cancer Alliance, the only national nonprofit organization dedicated solely to providing support and advocacy for people living with or at risk for lung cancer. “The community is invited to join us as we raise awareness of lung cancer and provide hope, support and compassion for those impacted by the disease and those at risk,” said Robbin Cohen, M.D., medical director for the thoracic oncology program at Huntington Hospital. “Awareness and early detection are

key to fighting lung cancer. We want to bring attention to this disease and what can be done to help save lives.” The ceremony will begin at 4:30 p.m. on the hospital’s north patio and will include remarks by Dr. Cohen, comments from those who have been touched by lung cancer and a glow stick lighting ceremony. The event is free and open to the community; however, registration is required. To register call 626-397-5464 or email shinealight@huntingtonhospital.com. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death nationally, killing more Americans than breast, colon and prostate cancer combined. The Lung Cancer Program at Huntington Hospital is recognized as one of the most comprehensive programs of its kind in the Los Angeles area. Our multidisciplinary

program focuses not only on science and technology, but on collaboration with community physicians and an emphasis on patient service and support. Dedicated nurse specialists facilitate and coordinate patient care, enhance physician-to-physician communication and have developed a lung cancer support group that meets regularly at the hospital. The hospital also provides a pain service managed by the department of anesthesia as well as symptom-management physicians and nurse specialists who are dedicated to managing all aspects of cancer care. Huntington Memorial Hospital is located at 100 W. California Blvd., in Pasadena. Parking for the event is available in the North Parking Structure. There is a $7 maximum parking charge per day in the lot.
