Baker of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s dept. has been patrolling the streets since 2007 on motorcycle. Baker’s primary position has been, up until Tuesday evening, keeping the traffic flowing freely in Temple City and keeping a watchful eye out for speeding motorists. On Tuesday evening, Temple City council voted “not to fund” the motorcycle officer position with a vote of 3-2, Chavez and Sternquest dissenting. The decision came down at a time when Rosemead construction has caused driver frustration and considerable delays. Please see page 23

DRIVE TEMPLE STATION IS COLLECTING TOYS THAT WILL BE DISTRIBUTED TO FAMILIES IN OUR PATROL AREAS WHO ARE IN NEED! THEY WILL BE DELIVERED BY UNIFORMED DEPUTIES AND EXPLORERS! WE NEED NEW UNWRAPPED TOYS FOR BOYS & GIRLS OF ALL AGES

TOYS CAN BE DROPPED OFF AT: Temple Sheriff’s Station 8838 E. Las Tunas Drive Temple City, Ca. 91780 Or contact Deputy Bill Harrington (626)-292-3377 | waharrin@lasd.org

We all have those kind of traumatic little moments in life. You know. Not life threatening, just nerve wracking. Things like going to the DMV. Yep, this was my year. My driver's license was due to expire. I have to admit, I have reached the age that I can no longer expect to automatically receive one in the mail every five years. What I received instead was a notice of what I would have to do to stay legal after my birthday. So, off to the auto club to pick up a booklet to read and review the rules for driving in California. This produced nerve wracker #1 -- finding a parking space within walking distance of the building. Mission accompllished, booklet attained. I was off to my favorite corner for breakfast. Coffee in one hand, booklet in the other, I was ready to enlighten myself when the customer in the next booth said, "Oh you poor thing, I feel for you. I had to take my test three times before I passed. It

was terrible." Well that didn't do a whole lot for my confidence. I flipped through the booklet. There was a practice test at the end. I decided to try it before reading. I'm a good driver. I've been driving a long time. I follow the rules. I was sure I would ace the test. The first few were how to pull out from a curb parking space, how to enter or cross a highway, the illegal alcohol level. No problem, piece of cake. Then uh-oh. Do kids have to be restrained with a seat belt until they are at least a) 8 years old AND are 4'9" tall b) 8 years old OR 4'9" tall? Should turn signals be given a) 200 feet b)100 feet or c) 3 to 5 seconds before turning? My confidence slipped a little further. The next day I went to a luncheon with some senior friends. I shared my little story and they started with theirs. One said, "Oh don't go to our local DMV, it is so crowded, takes forever." "And, they are certainly not senior friendly." "Oh no! That's why I went to Thousand Oaks to take mine. Things went pretty well there." Oh wow, now my confidence was completely gone. But, what had to be,

had to be. I went on-line and made an appointment for 10 days hence at the local. I read my booklet. I took and re-took the five on-line practice tests and some old ones I had in my file. I worried for 10 days. My big day came. I found a perfect parking spot. I entered the door at 8:00 a.m. I went to window 7 and smiled. She smiled back, took my money, checked my paper work, typed on her computer and gave me the vision test. I read the last line with each and both eyes. She smiled and said, "Very good." I went to camera B and smiled again. The lady smiled back, took my thumb print, snapped my picture and said, "That's nice." I went to the exam room. I smiled at the lady and took my test. She scored it, smiled and said, "You got 100%." I went across the hall. I smiled at the lady who handed me my temporary. She smiled and said, "You did very well. Your license will be good for five years." I smiled and exited the building at 8:25 a.m. I smiled at the guard. He smiled back. Actually, I wasn't smiling. I was gritting my teeth. I REALLY had to pee!

Reader says Women's Lib. a fraud Dear Editor: I think the phrase “ women’s liberation” is a misnomer. I believe in equal pay for men and women, but just look at what we’re supposed to do by ourselves. There’s pumping gas, fighting in wars alongside men, changing tires and fighting fires and holding down full time jobs while raising kids and placating husbands. Personally, I don’t want to pump gas, change tires or any of the above. I was married, had a part time job, quit work for the first five years of my daughter’s life and had a husband who fixed things, changed tires, cut the grass and didn’t complain about my cooking. He passed away two years ago and I don’t think I realized how lucky I was at the time. “Women’s Liberation” is a fraud. It has just caused more work for women. L . Jensen San Gabriel Editor’s Note: Thank you for your letter, but I believe the term to which you refer had more to do with human rights than women’s liberation. I doubt that many women today, or men for that matter , would agree with the philosophy set forth in the letter you sent to us. Creative tension grew between a growing general climate of liberalization - culminating in legal liberalization in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Such tension occurred due to topics of abortion, gay rights and equal pay in the United Kingdom. The 'second wave' of liberalizing feminism, is characterized by the formation of the National Organization of Women (NOW) and the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in the United States. More 'liberation' inspired movements occurred with strong roots in the US Civil Rights Movement. But with the rise of the civil rights movement, feminists again made their place in the political arena. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 came to Congress, and feminists lobbied hard for the addition of an amendment prohibiting sex discrimination in employment. After much debate, the Act was passed with just such a prohibition in Title VII—added by a congressman who hoped to

defeat the Act by including sex. But Title VII was still a shallow protection for women in the workforce. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was formed in 1965 to implement Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Though future NOW president Aileen Hernandez and founder Richard Graham fought hard as EEO commissioners to enforce Title VII's prohibition on sex discrimination, they were ultimately outnumbered 3-2, and the EEOC decided in September of 1965 that sex segregation in job advertising was permissible. In 1920, the 19th Amendment was passed. After years of fighting for equality, women were guaranteed the right to vote. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Lucy Stone were important figures in the women's rights movement and would be appalled to hear that Women’s Liberation is a ‘fraud’ in your eye. Women who campaigned for the right to vote, including Lucy Stone, fought to be protected under the 15th Amendment. Ratified in 1870, the 15th Amendment states that, "The right of citizens to vote shall not be denied on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude." "There are two great oceans; in one is the black man and in the other is the woman ... I will be thankful in my soul if anybody can get out of the terrible pit," Stone said. In the end, a woman's right to vote was not part of the 15th Amendment. They would have to wait another 50 years for this right. In closing, we find it hard to find anywhere where gas is pumped for you these days. If there is such a place, we’d like to know. Men too would like to have their gas pumped once in a while too…just to be mollified.

Pasadena hoops coach happy with first game of season Rayjon Moore scored 20 points and Ajon Efferson pitched in another 17 as the Pasadena High boys’ basketball team routed La Salle High, 76-46, on Monday night in the Rose City Classic at Maranatha High. Leading, 37-21, at halftime, the Bulldogs started the third quarter with 13 straight points, outscoring the Lancers, 26-9, in the frame en route to the victory. Pasadena coach Tony Brooks said despite it being the just the first game of the season he was pretty happy with his squad’s performance. “The first game of the season is always kind of ugly, kind of helter skelter,” Brooks said. “But I thought the first unit played pretty purposefully. We set our objectives for the game.” Brooks added he liked the way his team played as

By SHEL SEGAL the third quarter got underway. “I really was pleased how we came out after halftime,” he said. “We always talk about the first four minutes always being important in the third quarter. The kids responded by playing tough defense. They were able to extend the lead from that point. So, I’m pretty happy about that.” In addition, Brooks said his team has been rearing to go for some time now. We’ve been practicing for so long that we were so ready for a game. We were just ‘chompin’ at the bit for a game.’ As of today I think we’re doing OK. He also said there is much room for improvement. We still have a long way to go. I see a lot of mistakes. A lot of guys aren’t executing properly, offensively and

defensively. But it’s a long season and it’s a process. I didn’t think it would be a perfect game today. But at the same time I saw some good hustle plays, togetherness on offense and defensive. Up, 17-12, after the first quarter, the Bulldogs started to break through in the second quarter behind the hot shooting of Efferson, who had two three-pointers and a free throw in the frame. Bulldog Jordan Moses said he was pleased with the team’s performance in the win over La Salle. “We were executing the offense and playing good defense,” Moses said. “They did a good job against us, but we had the better offense and played a good game.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

The beat goes on in Sierra Madre! The Sierra Madre City Council meeting on September 20h was more of the same drum beats, that is to say all the discussions involved more spending and increasing the fees on the people of the City in every way that they can think of. Incidentally, it was mentioned, the City had not purchased any water as yet. With a projected income of more than $20M, the City always keeps on pressing for more revenue. They don't mind spending for financing $1.5M to purchase radio controlled water meters, they mention that some of the old water meters do not read accurately and those people are not paying their "fair share", and if so then replace those "old meters" with new ones, which cost approximately $100 each. This would not need for the City to finance more debt. They also mentioned that the Gas Company could read these radio operated meters for the City. This, too, is not viable since the Gas Company has yet to install their gas meters, so that is not a viable solution either, to say nothing about losing the local control of the water meters. Then came the issue of a property owner trying to get the City's approval to add two units on an R-3 property, which they finally got past that hurdle by a 3 to 2 vote. Then came the discussion of the $38,000 plus "development" fees. The property owner was asking for a waiver since

it has taken years and several redesigns of the plan to finally obtain approval. This request was soundly defeated by the Council. Does the City take into account that the property has been paying taxes for these services for as long as the property has been in private ownership and, furthermore, will in all logic pay twice as much in property taxes from the moment the two extra units are completed and for many years as the development exists. There is absolutely no reason fr.imposing "development fees" on any private property since the owners have been paying for these "services" since day one. This fee is nothing more than another way to increase the "revenue" to the City and likewise to discourage any new building. The same could be said of the CUP fees and impact fees. Then followed the discussion on how much does the water rate need to be increased. It is a complete mystery as to why the City cannot make ends meet with an income of over $20M. The discussion centered on the need for the increase in order to pay the annual debt payments on the water bonds, which total approximately $997,000 per year and will not end until the Year 2034. The first question is who created these debts? The answer is the City Government. Will they ever accept the responsibility and blame for their actions? Did the people have any voice in

these decisions? The answer is no! no!. Why should the people be charged for making these payments and why won't the government accept the responsibility for making the payments without passing the costs to the taxpayers? Can't they make the payments from the $20M income without charging the people more? Remember, ALL of the City's income comes from the taxpayers. Then came the consultant with his recommendation that the Council raise the fees on the water bills by 19% per bi-annual year and another 19% for the following budget year, compounded of course. This is on top of the 7-1/2% increase that is already being added to our water bills. We believe that these increases are primarily geared to the payment of the long-term debts, which were discussed in the previous paragraph. Did the consultant tell them anything other than what they wanted to hear? Answer: Of course not! What else would you expect to hear? The Sewer fund needs were postponed due to the lateness of the hour, but you can easily guess what will be paid since the Sewer Fund is likewise in debt with 10 years of payments at over $206,400 per year. When will it end? The City needs to buy a new set of drums and march to a different drum beat. Sierra Madre Watchman

Readers' Choice edition gets two-thumbs up Dear Editor: The Best Of issue ( READERS’ CHOICE) is beautiful!

“Friends, Hong Kong Citizens, Greetings! I, Wu’er Kaixi, am subject to a most-wanted warrant issued by the Chinese government in 1989 by the Beijing Public Security Bureau and promulgated as an edict nationwide by the Ministry of Public Security. I hereby make an appeal to the Hong Kong SAR and to the world. I am willing to turn myself in to the Chinese authorities. I urge the SAR government, based on Chinese law, and by my own agreement, to exercise its judicial power and extradite me to the Chinese authorities. As someone who is wanted by the Chinese government, why am I attempting turning myself in to the Chinese government, and why am I doing it in Hong Kong, which has its own laws, according to the constitutional principle of “One Country, Two Systems?” Moreover, why am I doing this in transit at Hong Kong International Airport? The reason is because it is my last resort. Since 2009, I have made similar attempts in Macau, Japan, and the United States to either enter China or Chinese embassies to face the Chinese government’s charges directly, but I have been denied every time. What I’m

time refusing to allow me to return. Assuming the Hong Kong government accepts the Chinese official position, which sees my participation in the 1989 student movement as part of a “conspiracy to subvert the government,” making me guilty of “counter revolutionary incitement,” the Hong Kong government should accept my request and help Chinese government to apprehend me. I understand that the transit area of Hong Kong International Airport is an international zone, but it is also an area within the Hong Kong government’s jurisdiction, and the Hong Kong authorities should at least consider my request to turn myself in. If the Hong Kong government denies my request, and will neither arrest me nor help the Chinese government to apprehend me, I take this to mean that the Hong Kong government does not accept the People’s Republic of China’s official verdict on the Tiananmen student movement. If that is so, I appreciate it, and I then request the Hong Kong government stop denying Chinese dissidents the right to enter Hong Kong, giving me an opportunity to turn myself in to the Chinese liaison office in Hong Kong. Since 1989, I have been in exile for 24 years, and have not been able to see my parents and other family members. My parents are old and in ill health. The Chinese government refuses to issue passports

issued passports is that their son is a dissident. I would like to ask the Chinese government, is this behavior in keeping with the international treaties it has signed; is it true to the spirit of Chinese traditional values; is it in accordance with PRC law? I believe the answer to those questions is, no, and that is why I feel I have no alternative but to turn myself in. I miss my parents and my family, and I hope to be able to be reunited with them while they are still alive, even if the reunion would have to take place behind a glass wall. Liu Xiaobo was arrested and sentenced for 11 years for expressing his political opinions, and he has now been in prison for five years. Many more Chinese citizens have been imprisoned for their ideas. Is this China’s idea of a “rising great nation” and the “China dream” – to name just two official catch-cries. In Liu Xiaobo’s case, his wife – who did not participate in her husband’s political activities – has also lost her freedom, and is denied the use of a telephone and the internet. I ask, what does this denial of fundamental rights really say about a government that claims to represent the interests of its people? If my action causes any disturbances in Hong Kong, it was not my intention, and for that I am deeply sorry, and I beg for the people of Hong Kong’s understanding and forgiveness. But I would also like to ask the people of Hong Kong to

think about one question: should we become blind to absurdity because we have been living with it for so long and have become accustomed to it? During the student movement of 1989, the people of Hong Kong provided us with great support and encouragement. Hong Kong played an important role in the Chinese democracy movement. As a member of the student movement, I will always be grateful for this. After the Tiananmen massacre, Hong Kong’s “Operation Yellowbird” rescued many pro-democracy activists – including myself – making it possible for the pro-democracy movement to survive overseas, and I will always be indebted to Hong Kong for that. The Victoria Park memorial that has taken place annually since the 1989 massacre is a globally recognized beacon in support of our endeavors to bring democracy to China. I admire the people of Hong Kong for this. I hope my efforts to return home are finally a success on this occasion. If so, let me take this last opportunity to take a deep bow to Hong Kong, and express my deepest gratitude and admiration.”

Temple City Camellia Festival Committee celebrates 70th Annual celebration Ever wonder where the phrase “Temple City Home of the Camellias” originated? Well it all happened 70 years ago when in 1944 the Women’s Club of Temple City chose a flower and slogan for the community and put it to work by crowning a Queen (eight month Sharon Ray Pearson) who was then driven down Las Tunas Drive escorted by a handful of Camp Fire Girls handing out Camellia blossoms to pedestrians. While this humble celebration has blossomed over the years, it continues to be a celebration of the youth in our community. This year, to celebrate the 70th Annual Camellia Festival, which will take place February 21-23, 2014, there will be more carnival rides and new entertainment for all ages, including live band performances on Saturday and Sunday and food trucks on Friday. There will be a Temple City High School “All Class” Reunion as well as a Reunion

for Past Camellia Festival Royalty. This year’s theme “OH THE BOOKS I CAN READ!” was suggested by theme winner, Aidan Garner, a First Grader at Emperor Elementary and announced by General Chairperson of the Camellia Festival of Temple City for 2014, Dawn Tarin at the October 24th KickOff attended by committee members and local dignitaries. The Festival Committee invited youth groups and organizations who are interested in becoming a part of this landmark celebration through building a float, marching in the parade, or operating a game or novelty booth to turn in application as soon as possible at the Camellia Festival Office as deadlines are fast approaching. In addition, if you are a First Grader in the Temple City Unified School District, or reside in Temple City, you can be part of the Camellia Festival Roy-

al Court. Royal Court Applications must be turned in to the Camellia Festival office no later than December 27th! The Camellia Festival Royal Court reigns over the weekend’s festivities as well as acting as representatives of the Camellia Festival throughout the year. The Royal Court is selected at the Play Day, which will be held on January 11th at the Live Oak Park Community Center and the public is invited to the Coronation, which will take place on January 31st at 7:00 p.m. also at Live Oak Park. All Applications, as well as more information regarding this unique hometown celebration can be found on the City’s website www.templecity. us or you may contact the Camellia Festival Director, Nan Fish at nfish@templecity.us or 626-285-2171 Ext. 2350. Join us in making the 70th Annual Camellia Festival a weekend to remember!

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

Why Classic?

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

Compliance through great patient care

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

Our CPAP Circle of Care® program

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

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

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

Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance

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

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

Skeptical?

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

Not currently screening for Sleep Apnea?

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

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

Monrovia Community Services Director Soash retires after 32 years On Saturday, November 30, 2013, Monrovia Community Services Director April Soash retired from public service. Soash has served the majority of her career in the City of Monrovia, rising from a Recreation Supervisor in 1981, to Community Services Division Manager in 1990, Assistant Director in 1994 and finally to Director of the Community Services Department in 1996. Her official last working day is Friday, November 22. Throughout her career, Soash has overseen the annual Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting in Library Park, the annual Spring Egg Hunt, Summer Concerts in the park, Halloween events and Canyon Park’s Haunted Hikes, Summer Extravaganza, literacy and cultural programs at the Library, and the former Monrovia Soap Box Derby. She directed City rentals, contract classes, outdoor education programs, youth sports, shelters for emergencies, and published the quarterly Community Services brochure.

-Couresty Photo

Over the past 32 years, she has served nine City Managers, five Mayors, and eighteen City Councilmembers, worked with four City Clerks, five City Treasurers, and seven City Attorneys, and attended over 776 City Council and Community Services Commission Meetings. Soash has a Recreation Administration degree from Pepperdine University and has used that knowledge to its fullest extent in Monrovia. Her legacy can be seen

in the new Public Library, the Wilderness Preserve, the Mary Wilcox Youth Center, and the Monrovia Skate Park. Soash said, “So much of what I have done in Monrovia involves family. I met my husband here and raised my children here. I have loved the opportunities the City has brought me, and it has been an honor and privilege to serve Monrovia. I am excited to now focus my free time on my family.”

“We want to thank the community for selecting Stephanie Aikin, Move Your Mountain Fitness, Gold Winner for Personal Trainer and Move Your Mountain Fitness, Silver Winner for Fitness Center.”

Michael Roberts hosts local fundraising events to educate youth on suicide prevention Local professional speaker Michael Roberts will be hosting and speaking at various fundraising events throughout the San Gabriel Valley in December to help educate local youth on suicide prevention. On December 7, he will be at the LA Fitness Arcadia for a Free Wrap-A-Gift Fundraiser, December 14th at The Sports Clip of Duarte offering Free Haircuts, December 21st at the UFC of Rosemead for The Cardio for Life Event, December 22nd at the LA Fitness Monterey Park for another Free Wrap-A-Gift Fundraiser and many other " 2014 " upcoming events in our area. The Michael Roberts Foundation helps educate prevention in Teen Suicide, Teen Alcohol and Teen Drug Abuse. Roberts philosophy; "Helping Families and The Youths of America". Roberts speaks around

the and believes it will not only make us a better country but a better world when young people are armed with facts and hope. He explains that with determination, motivation and a will to never give up, you can create anything you set your mind to. Growing up with divorced, alcoholic and abusive parents, Roberts turned to drugs and alcohol at an early age. “With no discipline and the freedom to do whatever I wanted, alcohol and drugs became my way of life. On Dec 5th, 1985 at the age of 17, I felt as if the only way out was to end my life, I bought a 12 pack of beer and stood overlooking a 250 foot cliff. I began thinking and said to myself “What a relief it would be for my parents to know that the mistake they had once made in me,

was no longer around.” As I stood looking down, I heard a voice, I turned to look back and saw a police officer standing as he said “It’s not worth it please don’t do it.” I then looked at him and said “I’m sorry” and then I JUMPED! Little did I know I would jump into the arms of an angel that the Good Lord Above would send to me. Falling and tumbling down to the bottom, I was helicoptered to a hospital with Doctors saying “This one will not live.” I slipped into a coma and began the fight of my life, having to learn to walk, talk and write again, having many broken bones to heal, remarkably 2 years of rehab later and with nothing but scars to show, I made a full recovery, " Roberts said.

In a prior semifinal matchup, AALL Black prevailed, 7-2. Tuesday night, while the AALL Gray bats took an inning to get warmed up, pitchers Ryan Rizzo, Kellen Gewecke and Brandon Lustig

turned in scoreless relief performances against a hard-hitting SM Black team. At one point, Rizzo struck out four batters in a row. The key hit for AALL Gray was a two-run triple by Lustig. Patrick Dowd and Jonah Tang both had two hits for AALL Gray. Jonluke Goldman hit his second home run in as many games for SM Black, a two-run

blast. Goldman capped a great fall season with 12 RBI in the tournament, including six RBI against Pasadena American White in the loser's bracket final. AALL Gray (122) was paced offensively during its championship fall by Julian Eskridge, who tallied a District-leading seven home runs for Manager Joe Dowd and coaches Mike Rizzo and Steve Gewecke.

LASD offers tips to prevent theft from your vehicle As we begin our Holiday shopping and may have gifts and other large purchases in our vehicles, we need to think about theft prevention. Thefts from vehicles are routinely reported to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and it remains one of the most frequently occurring crimes in the United States. Vehicles are easy targets and often contain property attractive to thieves. Even the most amateur thief can stroll through residential neighborhoods and parking lots and find plenty of opportunity. Help your sheriff's deputies reduce this crime in our community by taking these simple steps: Never leave your car unlocked, or the windows open. Leaving your car unlocked is an open invitation for a thief to help himself. Even leaving your window open a small amount can be enough for a thief to unlock and open your car. Thefts

can occur even in the few moments you might be inside a building and your car is not in your view. Never use a Hide-a-Key box on your car. Thieves will look for these. Never leave home or office keys in your car. The keys, along with any identifying paperwork left in the car could lead a thief to your home or business. Never leave valuables in clear view. Do not leave purses, cellular phones, backpacks, laptop computers, gym bags, shopping bags, packages, etc. visible from the outside of your vehicle. A thief may not know what is in a bag, but will be willing to break a window or door lock to find out. If you must keep property in your vehicle, place it in the trunk so it is not visible to the opportunist. Place it there prior to arriving at your destination so you are not seen putting it away when you arrive. Avoid leaving your car

in an under-used or unattended lot. A frequently used lot means more witnesses, so a theft is less likely to occur. If you are parking at night, or will be returning to your car after dark, park in a welllit area. Stay away from areas that are concealed, obscured or remote. When at your home, park inside of a garage if possible. Lock your vehicle and close/lock your garage door. If parking in a garage is not an option, park in your driveway or on the street in front of your home. Leave outdoor lights on or use motion sensing lights. No matter how safe the neighborhood is or how nice the shopping center appears, thefts can always occur. By following these tips we can reduce the thefts in our community and keep the Holidays a time of cheer. Report crime and suspicious activity to your local sheriff's station or police department.

Burglaries continue to plague Duarte The City of Duarte and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department advise residents aware that a burglary occurred in the Duarte Mesa or Area 8 of Duarte. Between Sunday, November 24 at 4:00 p.m. and Wednesday, November 27 at 1:00 p.m. while the resident was away, unknown suspect(s) entered the secure home in 2300 Block of High Mesa Drive after shattering a side window. The home was ransacked and two television sets, jewelry and a 2005 Bentley convertible was stolen, the alarm system was not activated. The garage door was left open by the suspect(s) the vehicle was recovered by Pasadena Police Department. If you spotted suspi-

cious persons, vehicles, and/or any unusual activity in the area, or If you have any information that can assist in the investigation of this burglary, please contact Special Assignment Deputy Goodrich at the Duarte Sub Station by calling (626) 3577938, ext. 320. The apprehension of those responsible for these crimes is a major priority of the City of Duarte and the Sheriff's Department. Four significant arrests were made, in November, December, February, and most recently late July, all in connection with some of the Duarte burglaries. There are other criminals at work targeting Duarte neighborhoods. A majority of the home burglaries have oc-

curred in the daytime hours when residents were away from home. Law enforcement continues to work to solve these crimes through increased patrol and presence to prevent other burglaries from occurring. A majority of arrests pertaining to burglaries are made with the help of the public. If you see something, Say Something! If you suspect you were the victim of a break-in always request a report ASAP to aid Deputies in effective investigations.

FBI nabs San Gabriel con-man in Las Vegas David Kaup, 30, of San Gabriel was arrested bu the FBI in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2013. He failed to show up at his sentencing in December of 2012 after pleading guilty to wire fraud charges in connection with an $11 million fraud scheme. (Courtesy of the FBI) The San Gabriel fugitive who admitted defrauding homeowners out of millions through mortgage and investment schemes was arrested in Las Vegas last week. The FBI's Los Angeles office said in a statement Tuesday that 30-year-old Da-

vid Kaup, who disappeared after failing to appear at his December sentencing last year, was arrested at a Las Vegas home where he'd been living. Kaup operated several Los Angeles-based mortgage and investment companies. In April 2012, he agreed to plead guilty to two counts of wire fraud. According to his plea agreement, Kaup carried out three separate fraud schemes that defrauded more than 50 mostly working class families who sought

San Gabriel Valley based Nazee Rofagha, D.C. has her finger on the pulse of neurological rehabilitation Improving the health and well-being of her patients for more than 18 years, San Gabriel Valley based Dr. Nazee Rofagha, Doctor of Chiropractic, remains at the forefront of her field. In addition to practicing complete traditional chiropractic care, Rofagha incorporates a “no boundaries” mindset in her work and is one of the few doctors in the area that is trained to perform Neurological Rehabilitation, an emerging new collection of non-invasive techniques designed to evaluate and rehabilitate nerves in the body. Currently, Dr. Rofagha is completing the third of the three Modules of Quantum Neurology® Rehabilitation Training. Developed by Dr. George Gonzalez, DC, QN, this advanced healing concept uses the patient’s own Nervous System to guide their rehabilitation. Also trained and certified in NRCT™ (Neurological Relief Centers Technique), Dr. Rofagha, remains committed to seeking out new, forwardthinking non-invasive techniques such as these to further help her patients suffering from chronic pain, injuries and conditions. Though each body is different, when these progressive practices work, the results are often described by patients as miraculous and immediate. “I was at my wits end because the constant pain that traveled throughout my body for decades was becoming unbearable,” said Karen Singer, a 20 plus year Fibromyalgia sufferer who recently visited Dr. Rofagha for testing and therapy that included specialized techniques that stimulate the Nervous System, Infrared Light Therapy and Vibration Therapy. The change happened when, through Dr. Rofagha’s efforts, her neck muscle got stronger. “The intensity of the pain in my back went from a level seven to a three within 15 minutes. For the first time in years, I left a doctor’s office with less pain and more hope.” These non-intrusive techniques relieve stress on

the entire spinal cord with gentle pressure, allowing practitioners, such as Dr. Rofagha, to test how efficiently the nerves are controlling a patient’s muscles, senses, organs and sensation of skin. The sensations control what a person feels, including pain. The goal is to improve the quality of information being sent along the entire path of the nervous system. Once the problem areas are determined, the restoration of accurate communication of the nerve ensues. This type of care makes the body more aware of what is not functioning correctly and facilitates the nerves to reprogram themselves so that the body can heal quickly and naturally. “I strive to identify the root of my patients problems and what techniques they respond to, not only focusing on the symptoms,” said Dr. Rofagha who works with people with a wide range of mildto-debilitating conditions including Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Migraines, Anxiety, Fatigue, Insomnia, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and more as well as Neuropathy and people suffering from nerve related pain such as pain radiation, tingling and throbbing sensations which are collectively referred to as a neurological condition. “I respect what

science and medicine can do but sometimes it is not enough. People realize they have a choice now, with all of the emerging techniques breaking ground in pain management and neurological rehabilitation, which is exciting. Patients are optimistic, after exhausting traditional remedies and medicine, that there is something that can still be done to potentially relieve their chronic pain and discomfort.” Dr. Rofagha’s interest in progressive non-invasive healing techniques was born years ago from her own frustration and desire to help alleviate some of her mother’s life-altering pain. It has since grown into a passion to help as many people as possible. Currently patients throughout the San Gabriel Valley, San Fernando Valley and Greater Los Angeles travel to Rofagha’s Pasadena office for this one-of-a-kind-treatment. A long-standing national board-certified chiropractor licensed by the State of California Board of Chiropractic Examiners and Neurological Rehabilitation Specialist, Dr. Rofagha and the family Chiropractic Wellness Center is located at 1017 South Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena.

Do your teeth hurt from cold air or cold food? Are your teeth sensitive to brushing?

Local families are invited to celebrate a white Christmas, featuring lots of real snow, at the second annual "Miracle on Myrtle" on Friday, Dec. 13, at Monrovia's Library Park. The event, which is being presented by Fellowship Monrovia, begins at 5 p.m. Part of Library Park will be turned into a virtual Winter Wonderland, with 20 tons of snow featuring three snow sleds for children to play in. There will be holiday music provided by the Fellowship Monrovia band featuring soloists and the new Fellowship Choir. Miracle on Myrtle will be held the same evening as the street fair, which will feature food and items to purchase which will make wonderful holiday gifts. "This is an amazing community," said Monrovia resident Albert Tate of Fellowship Monrovia. "This night will be a reflection of our great city. This is the most wonderful time of the year, and this will be a perfect evening for families to experience the magic of the holiday season. "As a church located

in the heart of Monrovia, we want everyone to enjoy a safe, family-friendly event where we revisit some great old Christmas carols and celebrate the holidays together with our families and as a community." Children will have the opportunity to enjoy a 40foot by 40-foot “sledding area” where much of the 20 tons of snow will be located. “The whole event last year was amazing,” said Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz. “It was phenomenal. It was a great event for our city; people who went into the park were blown away by

the spirit in the park and the festivities. I hope people who heard about it last year are able to come out and experience this collective spirit.” "We want this to become another tradition in Monrovia," said event organizer Bobby Chow. “We want to bring together people of all ages, multicultural and multi-generational, and make 'Miracle on Myrtle' a tradition like the Monrovia Christmas Parade." Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets. For further information, email info@ madeforfellowship.com.

New no-cut, no-sew technique will bring your gum line to its normal position in one short appointment. No gum grafting. Quick healing. Dr. John Chao has announced a groundbreaking patented procedure based on a knife-less, stitch-free and relatively pain-free method for repairing receding gums, called the Pinhole Surgical Technique® (PST®). Since there is no cutting or stitching, patients can expect virtually no pain and practically instant cosmetic improvement with almost no sign anything has been done. PST is a dramatic improvement to the standard, more invasive and painful graft method which requires grafted gum from the roof of the mouth to the

teeth. PST is considered by many experts to be a grounding-breaking discovery in the field of dentistry. Dr. Chao was recently granted a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Concurrently, a 33-month study undertaken by Dr. Chao has been published by The International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry, a high-impact, peer-review journal that has long-established international acclaim. *Patent No. ___US 8,007,278,B2___, Patent No. __US 8,202,092B2___

Arcadia High goes back to the future By SHEL SEGAL When it comes to the gymnasium at Arcadia High School, the future is now. Construction was recently completed on the school’s new gym, a $4 million project that was paid for by Measure I bonds. Jim Leahy, director of Measure I Bond Project Facilities, said the new gym is larger than the old one. “This was an existing original structure from the high school built in 1956,” Leahy said. “This was completely renovated now so that it has increased in size capacity to about 1,150 seats. It was slightly under 1,000. It was all wood bleachers.” Leahy said many of the gym’s features are state of the art. “Now we have telescopic bleachers that can be pushed out of the way so it can be used for multiple functions,” he said. “All of these bleachers are on a motor so it’s not kids pushing them back.” He added the gym is up to code with 2013 standards as far as energy goes.

Spirited, fresh “A Christmas Carol” showing at Sierra Madre Playhouse By Fran Syverson

“We repainted the ceiling and put in all-energy efficient lighting,” Leahy said. “We use it from a thermostat as well as a timer. We added air conditioning, which had been long missed in here. This was a hot box. All the maple floor was pulled up and re-done. It’s all elevated, which makes it softer. In any kind of performance you have some give because it’s not touching the floor.” Leahy also said he is pleased the school and community were patient while the gym was being renovated. “It’s a facility that gets

a tremendous amount of community use as well as school use,” he said. “It’s a facility that gets used around the clock. We’ve had this down for a good four months. But we worked around the clock to get it done and have it ready for the rest of the school year.” In addition, he said the gym basically pays for itself. “It’s money well spent,” he said. “It will pay dividends for the next 50 years.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

If you’re pondering why you should see “A Christmas Carol” again this season, ponder no more. The Sierra Madre Playhouse brings a performance that offers fresh insight and a new intimacy that will warm your holiday heart! Director Christina Harris has adapted Charles Dickens’s beloved family classic to give us clues as to why Ebenezer Scrooge became the Scrooge that we all know— and love to hate. We meet his mean-spirited father briefly, and empathize with his loss of little sister Fanny. But the main theme of Scrooge’s redemption after his visitations of Ghosts Past, Present and Future remain. Fezziwigs’ festive party and its mistletoe, Scrooge sending the lad to fetch a turkey for the Cratchits’ dinner, young Ebenezer’s lonely holidays at school, Belle’s breakup of their romance, hands warming over the scant fire, the plaintive children “Want” and “Ignorance.”… it’s all there as it should be. Harris opted for more muted hues than customary for both the costumes and the settings, saying that she feels they are more closely Dickensian. A mural of an English village, circa 1843, comprises the entire back wall of the stage and is so appealing we feel we could stroll down its path. Simple scene changes take us along with Scrooge and the three Spirits on their visits. Scott Harris plays the bombastic Scrooge, with his trademark “Bah—humbug!” Yet as he makes his nocturnal journey to scenes of his life, he also shows tenderness and anguish, both in great measure. Bob Cratchit (Anthony Bravo) is the meek, compliant clerk and loving family man. The Spirit of Christmas

Past (Kelly Kitko) is enchanting in an ethereal, floaty white gown as she leads Ebenezer back to his childhood and youth. Hector S. Quintana, with his booming voice, wears a brightly colored, floorlength robe, as is the tradition for his Christmas Present role. As Christmas Future, Tim Stafford is absolutely eerie in a grayish, wispy garment, and he’s all the more ominous in that his face is concealed and he doesn’t speak. (This vignette may prove a bit scary for some youngsters.) Jacob Marley (Karl Maschek) also presents a frightful image. “God bless us, everyone!” says our beloved Tiny Tim (Amelia Grace.) Tim Stafford is Scrooge’s charming, persistent nephew Fred. He and most other cast members play several roles and, at that, nearly two dozen actors are onstage. Olivia SchlueterCorey is a poignant Fanny, and Jolie Adamson the spurned sweetheart Belle. Of course “A Christmas Carol” offers carols and dancing, plus John Zalewski’s new score that proves to be a real mood-setter. Lighting by Jeremy Pivnick enhances the ambience. Several villagers make up a small orchestra, which highlights youngsters Melody Cole or Cadence Cole as violinists. Harris has created a nice transition showing Ebenezer and Fanny as they grow up.

Fanny at 5 years is Cadence Cole, Jessie Ellico Franks at 8, and Ranya Jaber at 12. Young Scrooge is Randy Wade Kelley, Andrew Byer at 10 years, and Zayd Jaber at 17. Ward Calaway is producer. Ashley Jo Navarro is stage manager, with Emilie Brazeau and Rick Taylor as assistants. Reservations for “A Christmas Carol” are strongly recommended, as sellouts are expected. The play will continue at the Sierra Madre Playhouse weekends through Monday, Dec. 23. Curtain time is 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2:30 p.m. for Sunday matinees. Additional holiday performances are Sun., Dec. 15 at 7 p.m.; and weeknights at 8 p.m. on Wed., Dec 18; Thurs., Dec. 19; and Mon., Dec. 23. Admission is $28 general, $25 for seniors (65+) and youths (to age 21.) The Sierra Madre Playhouse is located at 87 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre. Holiday dining at local restaurants can enhance your theater-going experience. City lots offer free parking.

‘Festival of Trees’ benefit for Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills - Dec. 7 The 3rd Annual Festival of Trees will take place at Annandale Golf Club in Pasadena this Saturday, December 7 from 6 - 10pm. All proceeds benefit Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills, which serves low income and at-risk San Gabriel Valley youth. The elegant, black tie optional evening features seasonal music, festive cocktails, a sit-down dinner, and a brilliant display of exquisitely decorated Christmas trees and wreaths available for purchase through both raffle and auction bidding. Guests will be greeted by Victorian carolers upon arrival before being escorted into a wonderland of adorned trees and wreaths, complete with unique and exclusive gifts to accompany each. A variety of full-sized trees, table-top trees, and wreaths are donated by individual and corporate sponsors, and fully trimmed in

creative themes by talented local florists and professional designers. Themes range from whimsical and romantic to elegant and traditional. Some of the highly anticipated trees this year include an “I Love LA” Dodger’s tree, which includes four Dugout Club tickets to a 2014 season game (a $2,000 value), and a tree constructed entirely of wine bottles. The Grand Prize Tree, which includes a six-day stay at a beautiful Lake Arrowhead home, will be featured by live auction. Jeanine Scott, BGCF board member and event chair, describes the event as “one of the pre-eminent holiday events in the San Gabriel Valley. Besides being a gorgeous and festive event, the generosity displayed by our community and the hopeful stories of troubled youth whose lives have been changed by the Boys & Girls Club are a true representation of the spirit

of the holiday season.” John Wilson, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills says, “Our club has experienced significant growth over the past two years, nearly doubling the amount of youth we serve on a daily basis. Both of our sites are now operating at full capacity, demonstrating the great need for the programs we provide. We’ve only scratched the surface, though. We have plans to open a new center dedicated to teens in 2014, which will allow us to reach more kids. It will be a critical year for us, and the funds raised from the Festival of Trees will play a major role in enabling us to sustain this growth.” The Festival of Trees raises over $70,000 for BGCF annually.

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.

citizens hoping to stop any such development has formed and ran advertisements in local papers asking people to demand the project be stopped. Harking back to the One Carter project that failed and the Stonehouse mansion project which failed after that. The Maranatha High School project which was turned down some 15 years ago. Residents of Sierra Madre have a long history of preservation and apparently this is the next battle.

The ad asks people to go to the website: www. stopmonasteryhousingproject.com and says “A proposal is moving forward to sell a significant portion of the Mater Dolorosa Monastery to a developer to build a housing project. This project must be stopped before it's too late. The project itself will require a zoning change from institutional to residential.” The site of Mater Dolorosa Monastery and Retreat Center was acquired

by the Passionists in 1924. It was an 83 acre plot, at an elevation of about 1200 feet, originally called Monte Olivette, commanding a sweeping view from Los Angeles central city to the eastern limits of the San Gabriel Valley. Behind the retreat center, the San Gabriel Mountains rise sharply. Some Passionists resided at St. Rita’s Parish in Sierra Madre, where Passionists served from 1923 until 1951. Others lived at a farm house on the property.

Meeting Location: City Council Chambers, 5938 Kauffman Avenue, Temple City, California 91780 Please note that the previous public hearing notice that was sent inadvertently left out the date, time and location of the meeting. State Clearinghouse Number: Not applicable Project Location: The proposed Project is located within the City of Temple City, which is located in southeastern Los Angeles County. The Project site is generally located southeasterly of Lower Azusa Road, northeasterly of the Union Pacific Railroad ROW, and southwesterly of the Eaton Wash, approximately 400 feet east of the intersection of Lower Azusa Road and Encinita Avenue. The site is contained within an unsectioned area of Township 1 South and Range 11 West of the USGS Topographic Map, 7.5 Minute Series, El Monte Quadrangle and known as Assessor’s Parcel Numbers 8592005-003 and 8592-005-004. Project Description: Project No. 130000091 which proposes to implement a 74 unit single-family attached and detached residential project with associated on-site recreational amenities (three pocket parks) on two parcels totaling approximately 10.8 acres (Project) located at 9250 Lower Azusa Road, in the City of Temple City, County

of Los Angeles, California. The Eaton Wash, a Flood Control easement, is located on the northeasterly portion of the Project site and is approximately 4.63 acres. After netting out this easement, the remaining developable area is approximately 6.22 acres. An existing Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way (ROW), with a single line, is located adjacent to the southeasterly property line. The Project site is a long and narrow site, the width being approximately 130 feet distance between the railroad right-of-way and the Eaton Wash and the length being an average of 2,570 feet. There is one access point to Lower Azusa Road. A single, 24-foot-wide drive lane, which leads to fourteen 24-wide drive lanes (average depth 90 feet) is along the southerly portion of the Project. As presently proposed, the Project proponent has prepared six applications as part of Project No. 130000091 to allow development of the proposed Project site: General Plan Amendment; Zone Change; Tentative Tract Map No. 72407; Conditional Use Permit; Site Plan Review; and a Development Agreement. Finding: City of Temple City’s decision to implement this proposed project is a discretionary decision or “project” that requires evaluation under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Based on the information in the project Initial Study, the City has made a preliminary determination that a Mitigated Negative Declaration will be the appropriate environmental determination for this project to comply with CEQA. Initial Study: Copy of the Initial Study/Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration are on file and available for public review at the City Hall, 9701 Las Tunas Drive, Temple City, CA 91780 and on the City’s website www.templecity.us The public review period for the Initial Study begins November 19, 2013 and closes on December 10, 2013. All mitigation measures identified in the Initial Study are summarized on pages 89-91 and are proposed for adoption as conditions of the project. These measures will be implemented through a mitigation monitoring and reporting program if the Mitigated Negative Declaration is adopted. Published: December 5, 2013 Temple City Tribune

Time is on San Gabriel’s side – in 50 years By SHEL SEGAL A time capsule was buried at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse on Tuesday to be opened in the year 2063. Burying the time capsule was the final event of the city of San Gabriel’s centennial celebration. City officials opened a time capsule from 1963 earlier in the year. Mary Cammarano, cochair of the city’s centennial celebration committee, said city officials are really excited to be burying this time capsule. “Today is a culmination of the past year,” Cammarano said. “It’s been four years of working on the centennial and highlighting every month with a certain event and asking every entity in the city to contribute something to the time capsule.” She added a variety of items are going into the time capsule. “Every school has donated particular items, like yearbooks, momentos, the kindergarteners have all made photos of themselves and a story about themselves,” she said. “The churches have contributed so much. The service groups have all donated items that are going in. We have shower heads and other items from the water district.”

In addition, she said the time capsule is a metal box that is 24 inches by 24 inches by 24 inches. Dick Nichols, a former mayor of San Gabriel, was present when the 1963 time capsule was buried. Nichols said he hopes this time capsule will be buried better as the last one was in a bit of disarray when it was opened. “It was disappointing that we found out when we buried the other one in a wooden box – like a little casket – pretty much everything in the other time capsule got ruined,” Nichols said. “Now, you can laminate it and preserve it.” Nichols said much has changed in San Gabriel since the last time capsule was bur-

LASD motorcycle officer de-funded Continued from page 1

Public safety officer for Temple City, Robert Sahagun told Beacon Media Wednesday that council chose to not fund the $250,000 from the General Fund and will re-examine the impact in six months. Captain Christopher Nee of Temple Station said he fully understood council’s decision and while he’d like to see the motorcycle officer remain in the city limits, he realized the financial constraints facing all cities. Nee said Officer Baker will be reassigned hopefully to a city that requires a motorcycle officer. Temple City’s contract with the LASD includes three dedicated deputies with one sergeant overseeing the officers. Effective immediately, one of the three cars dedicated to the city will now be devoted exclusively to traffic and the other two are “crime cars.” The City Council chose not continue funding of the motorcycle traffic deputy position for the City's law enforcement contract with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's

Department for the remainder of the Fiscal Year 2013-14 (January 1 2013— June 30, 2014). Under the City's law enforcement contract with LASD, there are two major components that make up the Sheriff's Department's service: Basic and Supplementary. During the preparation of the FY 2013-14 City Budget, staff was asked to review the Sheriff Department's service levels for effectiveness in addressing recent crime trends that were having a direct negative effect on community's overall safety and quality-of¬- life standards (e.g., burglaries, narcotics violations, probation/parole compliance, etc.). Staff's assessment was that the funding of a third dedicated deputy (offset by $100,000 COPS Grant) assigned to the Temple City Special Assignment Team would give LASD more resources to direct at addressing the increase in burglaries and narcotics violations citywide. Temple City’s annual law enforcement budget is 3.9 Million. C
