Chemical odor exposes 200 people in Monrovia to gas, hospitalizes nine By Terry Miller A 'shelter in place' order was lifted early Monday evening in Monrovia after a hazardous materials spill sickened residents and local employees, according to city officials. At least 45 people reported symptoms including dizziness, chest pains, asthma, nausea and vomiting. A manufacturing company (Air Logistics) on Railroad Avenue was batch mixing three chemicals and at some point there was an adverse reaction causing the chemicals to heat up and off gas into the air," said Alexis Newell the Public Information Officer for Monrovia. Approximately 200 people reported symptoms including dizziness, chest pains, asthma, nausea and vomiting. At 11:05am Monday smoke was reported coming out of vents in a roof at 146 Railroad Avenue. The unknown resin was off gassing. Monrovia Fire, Health HazMat and AQMD (Air Quality Mgmt District)were on scene throughout the day Please see page 16

Firefighters from numerous agencies were decontaminated after being exposed to a volatile mixture of Cyclo Aliphathic resin, Boron trifluoride, and Ancamine chemicals which caused 200 people to be treated for exposure Monday in Monrovia. -Photo by Terry Miller

The plan to sell off part of the Mater Dolorosa Passionist Retreat Center has been met with opposition by at least one community group. The fathers at the center have been getting closer to selling some of the site to a real estate developer. However, the plan is not sitting well with everybody around the compound, which is located on Sun-

nyside Avenue in Sierra Madre. Matthew Bryant, who is on the steering committee for the Coalition to Preserve the Monastery and Stop the Housing Project, said it is not so much the fact that part of the property might be developed, it’s the way the monastery is going about the process Please see page 10

Dorothy's Place Lexiphiles

By Dorothy Denne I couldn't decide if I most needed to spend some time writing Christmas cards or writing a column. While trying to make up my mind I turned the computer on to check for any important emails. I didn't find anything important in the sense I had in mind but I found my answer. I don't have to "write" a column, just "type" one. This is fun and a no-brainer for me. Enjoy. Lexiphiles (i.e., "lovers of words" you know....like.... you can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish...or, I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger....then it hit me...,etc.). A boiled egg is ...hard to beat. When the smog lifts in Los Angeles...U.C.L.A.

A dentist and a manicurist married...They fought tooth and nail. A thief who stole a calendar...got twelve months. To write with a broken pencil is...pointless. When fish are in schools they sometimes...take debate. The professor discovered that her theory of earthquakes...was on shaky ground. The batteries were given out ...free of charge. A will is a ...dead giveaway. If you don't pay your exorcist...you can get repossessed. With her marriage, she got a new name...and a dress. Show me a piano falling down a mineshaft and I'll show you...A-flat miner. You are stuck with debt if...you can't budge it. Local Area Network in Australia...The LAN down under. When you've seen one

shopping center...you've seen a mall. Police were called to a day care where a 3 year old was...resisting a rest. Did you hear about the fellow whose whole left side was cut off?...He's all right now. A bicycle can't stand alone...it is two tired. In a democracy it's your vote that counts; in feudalism...it's your Count that votes. The guy who fell into an upholstery machine...was fully recovered. He had s photographic memory...which was never developed. Those who get too big for their britches will be...exposed in the end. When she saw her first strands of gray hair...she thought she'd dye. I don't know who thinks these things up, but I'm glad they do. Now to my Christmas cards.

Restaurant Review: Fuji West is ‘definitely a delight’

The cuisines of Myanmar and Japan have about as much in common as borscht and haggis. But they are featured together at the San Gabriel restaurant Fuji West: Japanese & Myanmar Restaurant. Fuji West is located at 927 East Las Tunas Drive at the site of the old Tokyo Lobby. And while this restaurant’s owners are Burmese, they pay homage to the old restaurant by continuing to serve sushi and tempura. Feel free to wet your palate when you arrive with the miso soup. But if you want a bolder taste, have instead the Myanmar style refreshing sour soup for a change. It is tangy, but very tasty and you won’t be sorry you tried it. However, keep it mind it is different. For the next dish (as most dishes are rather small), if you want something really traditional Burmese have a bowl of mohinga, or festival fish noodle

By SHEL SEGAL soup. This is minced fish in a delicious broth and tastes great. However, it is fishy. Really fishy. Avoid it if you don’t like a strong fish flavor, but have a bowl if you’re willing to take a chance. It is $6.95. For something that’s just more Asian than Burmese try the lemongrass beef curry. The curry isn’t very strong (that’s a good thing) and the beef is tender and comes right off the bone. It’s a very safe and tasty choice. It is also $6.95. Another extremely good tasting traditional Burmese choice is Mandalay Nungi noodles. This is basically just chicken and noodles with some flavoring thrown in. It’s definitely not bad. And one of the young workers at the restaurant says this is basically what he eats every day. It’s a nice simple warm dish that will go a long way in filling your stomach. It is

$6.95. As far as the Japanese foods go, Fuji West serves a crunchy California roll. This has shrimp tempura batter on it and is very good. It is on the menu for $9.50. And there is a Mount Fuji roll. This consists of spicy tuna, cucumber, seaweed, crab salad, avocado, green onions, tempura, spicy mayo, eel and cream cheese. It is definitely the cream cheese that makes this special. It’s a cacophony of flavors that really lights up this dish. It is also $9.50. As there are not many Burmese restaurants in the area, Fuji West is definitely a delight. Stop by if you want to try some authentic Burmese food. For more information, please call (626) 286-1999. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

Editor's response ‘over the top' according to reader Dear Editor: Your response to my letter ( Volume 18, No. 49 ) about Women’s Liberation was over the top. ( My use of the word : Fraud” was unfortunate. I said I definitely believe in equal pay for men and women. Of course I believe in the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote as well as the Civil Rights Act of 1964. I’m surprised you didn’t mention the Ledbetter Act written by a woman who did the same work as a man for years but was paid less. The point I was making is that women seem to have more work thrust upon them than ever since the 1960’s. If a woman wants to

be a “Homemaker” and not work outside the home, she should not be pressured into doing something more “fulfilling.” I certainly believe in equal rights for all. I think you went off on a tangent and claim to think that I don’t appreciate Susan B. Anthony, Rosa Parks or Martin Luther King., Jr. – not true. Finally, there IS a place that gas is pumped for you. I go there all the time. It’s Mission Car Wash in San Gabriel on Mission and San Gabriel Blvd. They will also wipe your windshield and check the oil if you ask. Their prices are exasctly the same as the self service across the street.

L. Jensen San Gabriel Dear Madam: Your recent letter(s) have been somewhat enlightening. I still find it hard to believe any woman in today’s world would be “pressured into doing something,” as you suggest. The truth of the matter is, in reality, that in many households both man and woman work to make ends meet. This is out of financial necessity, not anything more. We appreciate your tip on the gas station and hope it inspires more people to take advantage of the time-honored tradition of man checking a motorist’s oil and washing his windows….really a sevice of the past in most of California. Terry Miller, Editor

Taiwan relief to Philippines continues unabated People from all walks of life in the Republic of China (Taiwan) continue donating funds and relief supplies to the Philippines following the disaster caused by super Typhoon Haiyan. The storm devastated the central Philippines Nov. 8, 2013, causing more than 5,000 deaths and affecting over 10 million people. In accordance with President Ma Ying-jeou’s vision of the ROC as a provider of humanitarian aid, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has worked closely with nongovernmental organizations to provide prompt relief and assist in the reconstruction of affected areas. Earlier this week, while leading a trade delegation to the Philippines, Wang Chih-kang, chairman of the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), donated US$120,000 collected by the organization. On Nov. 25, Sun Wenhsien, president of the Chiu Chang Mathematics Education Foundation, took a group of 27 schoolchildren to the Philippines to participate in the International Mathematics and Science Olympiad for Primary School Students, with each child carrying 10 kilograms of rice, noodles, biscuits or canned food

to be donated to storm victims through the event’s organizing committee. These efforts follow the airlifting of more than 150 metric tons of aid supplies in 18 flights by ROC air force C-130 Hercules cargo planes Nov. 12-21, as well as the transport of 530 metric tons of relief goods to Cebu Port aboard an ROC naval vessel. Supplies included prefabricated housing, solar generators, tents, rice, clothing, ready-to-eat food and potable water, donated by private citizens and a wide range of civic organizations and charity groups, including the ROC Red Cross Society, Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation, Bliss and Wisdom Foundation, Namchou Chemical Industrial Co. Ltd., I-mei Foods Co. Ltd., ROC I-Kuan Tao Association, and National Fishermen’s Association. The goods were distributed with the assistance of volunteers working for ROC charity groups in the Philippines, joined by over 16,000 Filipinos affected by the typhoon who were employed by the Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation. As of Dec. 5, the total value of monetary and material donations made by the ROC government, civic groups and individual

citizens had reached NT$358.5 million (US$11.09 million). In addition, within days of the disaster a 35-person team organized by the Taiwan Root Medical Peace Corps arrived in the affected area to provide free medical assistance. ROC government agencies, coordinated by Minister without Portfolio Lin Junq-tzer, have worked together closely. The Ministry of Health and Welfare promptly established a special bank account for monetary donations, while MOFA and the Ministry of National Defense designated two aid supply collection centers, one in northern Taiwan and one in the south. As mentioned above, the MND also dispatched aircraft and a ship to transport relief supplies, as well as mobilizing soldiers to help collect, sort, pack, load and ship the goods. Local governments in Taiwan have also set up special accounts to enable citizens to easily make donations. Moreover, the Council of Agriculture collected canned fish and frozen vegetables, and the Overseas Community Affairs Council marshaled ROC firms and nationals in the Philippines for participation in relief efforts.

SG Mission raises $14,000 for Philippines relief San Gabriel Mission has sent $14,000 in relief aid to Claretian Missionaries in the areas damaged by the recent storm, announced mission Pastor Rev. Bruce Wellems, CMF. "Claretian Missionaries in the Philippine Province would like to thank all of you for all the help and solidarity you have shown to our brothers and sisters," said a Claretian Missionaries spokesperson. "Our brother Claretian

Missionaries are working tirelessly for the people in Tacloban and Palo Leyte to bring relief to the people." It was reported the Claretian Missionaries house was severely damaged. San Gabriel Mission is the fourth oldest mission founded in California and has more than 40 parish groups in a language of English, Chinese, Filipino, Italian, Spanish or Vietnamese.

Suspect arrested in theft of Porsche parts after fatal Santa Clarita collision which killed actor Paul Walker The investigation of the traffic collision wherein Paul Walker and Roger Rodas lost their lives on Saturday, November 30, 2013, in the city of Santa Clarita is continuing. Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station traffic investigators are continuing to document the investigation. At the conclusion of the on-scene traffic investigation the night of November 30, the wrecked Porsche Carrera GT was loaded onto a contracted flat-bed tow truck to be transported to the impound yard for further investigation. When the tow truck left the scene at about 10:00PM that night, several vehicles followed it eastbound on Newhall Ranch Road. At one point the driver of the tow truck stopped at the red light E/B Newhall Ranch Road at McBean Parkway. A witness saw a male exit a vehicle that was following the tow truck. The male grabbed a piece of the wrecked Porsche off the tow truck bed. The male drove

away with the stolen vehicle part. The tow truck driver reported the theft to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s detectives assigned to the theft case were able to identify a suspect. A search warrant was obtained and a suspect was taken into custody as he was leaving his residence located in Tujunga, Los Angeles County. 18-year old Suspect Jameson Witty was arrested at his residence. A stolen vehicle part was later recovered by sheriff’s detectives serving a search warrant at a residence in Canyon Country, Los Angeles County. The car part was a red, T-top roof panel to the wrecked 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. A second suspect in this theft has been identified. The 25-year old suspect is outside the state of California and is in communication with sheriff’s detectives making arrangements to surrender himself. Suspect Jameson Witty

was booked at Santa Clarita Valley Station with bail set at $20,000.00 Sheriff’s detectives will meet with the Office of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s for consideration of filing criminal charges of felony Grand Theft (487(a) CA Penal Code) and Tampering with Evidence (135 CA Penal Code) against both suspects. The investigation of the traffic collision is ongoing. This includes examination of the wrecked vehicle for any further evidence that could help investigators to determine the cause of the collision. If you have any information about the theft of the vehicle parts, please call Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s detectives at 661255-1121. Or if you wish to remain anonymous, call “LA Crime Stoppers” by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477), texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or using the website http:// lacrimestoppers.org.

Inaugural Arcadia Christmas market a delight

-Courtesy Photo

Downtown Arcadia will came alive with a traditional holiday atmosphere of music, unique gifts, food and activities last Saturday and will continue every Saturday night until Christmas with a European-style Christmas Market. Arcadia’s Best Foundation’s Downtown Christmas Market, sponsored primarily by Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority as well as Forest Lawn, with support from the City of Arcadia and Matt Denny’s Ale House Restaurant, will be open from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. Dec. 14 & 21. First Avenue will be closed from Huntington Drive to Wheeler Avenue and filled with more than 40 different vendor booths each night, live music, and inflatable jumpers for kids produced by Family Festival Productions (Monrovia’s Family Festivals on Myrtle Avenue). The festive Christmas environment, including lighted trees, blowing snow and images of snowflakes projected on buildings, will be created by Town & Country Event

Rentals & Services. Attendees will find special items of interest for the holidays from local merchants such as bicycles and related gear from Helen’s Cycles, elegant collectibles by Christine’s Gifts & Collectibles and Pok-A-Dots, the latter also offering all manner of Santa costumes. Special gifts from jewelers, spas and salons on First Avenue and Huntington Drive will also be available, as will gift book collections from The Book Rack, and plenty of delicious food and drinks. Health facilities on the street, 24 Hour Fitness and The Fitness Factor, will be open on the same block where other shops such as Robusto Cigars and Stacked Sandwich also provide popular daily customer services a few doors away from the Sonata Room Latin and ballroom dance studio. Volunteers for Arcadia’s Best Foundation sold more than 60 cups of hot cider, hot chocolate, and coffee for only $1 per cup last Saturday. Serenading attendees last weekend

was a professional quartet of Christmas Carolers who perform at The Grove and the Americana at Brand called Southen California Entertainment and Musical Concepts (Tom Axworthy, e-mail: scemc@earthlink. net). Simulataneously, the three-piece rockabilly, classic 50s rock and modern country band with two names, The Swinging Eight Balls and Moonshine Buckets (Moonshine Mic – 323244-1903), kept the energy level high and fun with familar tunes that included a rock-a-billy version of “Jingle Bells.” The Christmas Market, patterned after the centuriesold annual Christmas Markets in Europe that have recently become enormously popular in North American cities such as New York, Chicago and Vancouver, will showcase the plethora of services available within walking distance in Downtown Arcadia, all of which continue to be open for business during construction of the much-anticipated Gold Line light rail line to be ready for riders in 2016.

jails, unjustified detentions and conspiring to obstruct the investigation at the Men's Central Jail. "These incidents did not take place in a vacuum — in fact, they demonstrated behavior that had become institutionalized," U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte Jr. said at an afternoon news conference. "The pattern of activity alleged in the obstruction of justice case shows how some

members of the Sheriff's Department considered themselves to be above the law." All are lower to midranking deputies, an unidentified law enforcement official told the Associated Press. “While the indictments were not unexpected, it is nevertheless a sad day for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. We do not tolerate misconduct

by any deputies. This department is grounded in its core values, namely to honorably perform our duties with respect for the dignity of all people, and integrity to do right and fight wrongs. We have cooperated fully with the federal investigation and will continue to do so. Please know that I respect the criminal justice system. No one is above the law. “ Lee Baca, Sheriff

Michigan State and Stanford at Rose Bowl The Rose Bowl game is the oldest bowl game in college football history. Often considered the most prestigious of all the bowl games, the Rose Bowl generally features the Pac-12 Champion and the Big Ten Champion. In the BCS era, the Rose Bowl hosted the BCS National Championship in 2002 and 2005 and will be the site of a semifinal game every three years in college football’s new playoff system. Michigan State and Stanford have been selected to ring in the Rose Bowl's centennial. The No. 4 Spartans will face the fifth-ranked Cardinal on Jan. 1 in the 100th edition of the Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO, pitting two venerable programs in Pasadena's traditional MidwestWest Coast intersectional matchup.

Every month, thousands of homeowners are faced with the stressful dilemma of whether to buy first or sell first. You see, if you buy before selling, you could run the risk of owning two homes. Or, just as bad, if you sell first, you could end up homeless. It’s what insiders in the industry call the Real Estate Catch 22, and it’s an extremely anxious position to be in. This financial and emotional tightrope is one you usually have to walk alone because most agents have no way of helping you with this predicament. But one

local realtor is using a unique Guaranteed Sale Program which solves this dilemma. This program guarantees the sale of your present home before you take possession of your new one. If your home doesn’t sell in 120 days, they will buy it from you themselves for the previously agreed price ensuring that you never get caught in the Real Estate Catch 22. Before you hire any professional, you should research the market to find out who can do the best job for you. When interviewing agents, find out what kind of guarantee they are willing to give you with

respect to the selling of your home. Unfortunately, you’ll find that most agents simply cannot make such a guarantee. To help you learn more about this program and how it can make your move less stressful, a FREE special report has been prepared entitled “How to Avoid Getting Stuck with Two Homes”. To order a FREE Special Report, call toll-free 1-888-300-4632 and enter 1022. You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.Get your free special report NOW to find out how to guarantee the cash sale of your home.

Ovation award winner Gigi Bermingham directs “An Ideal Husband” at Sierra Madre Playhouse: Opens January 17th Fresh from, winning the Ovation Award as Best Actress (in “Master Class” at International City Theatre), Gigi Bermingham returns to Sierra Madre Playhouse (where she starred in “Arcadia”) to direct “An Ideal Husband.” A government capital is shaken with plots, insider trading, sexual intrigue, greed, blackmail, backstabbing, and a scandal so shocking it threatens to topple the established order. Is it Washington in 2013? No, it’s London in 1895. A politician on the rise is threatened with the destruction of his career and the loss of his adoring wife’s love if a sexy, vixenish extortionist reveals an appalling secret from the legislator’s youth. There are betrayals on top of betrayals and romances on top of romances in Oscar Wilde’s funny,

witty, sharply observant comedy. Fans of Oscar Wilde will be thrilled with this mounting. Those new to Wilde will understand why he is considered the greatest English writer (though born in Dublin) of his time (1854-1900). Gigi Bermingham’s previous directing credits include “You Can’t Take it With You”, “Thin Man”, and “It Can’t Happen Here”, all for Antaeus Company. In addition to her Ovation Award for “Master Class”, she won another Ovation Award for her solo comedy “Non-Vital Organs.” She also won the Natalie Schafer Award (for emerging comedic actress) from the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle. Her cast for this new production of “An Ideal Husband” includes (in al-

phabetical order) Nicola Bertram, John Combs, Ata Farhadi, Albert Garnica, John Hays, Jonathan Lamer, Michael Matthys, Alexandria Napier, Ann Noble and Lizzie Zerebko. Production manager: Estelle Campbell. Production stage manager: Kimberly Weber. Assistant director: Rachel Berney Needleman. Sound designer: Jeff Gardner. Set designer: Cesar Holguin. Lighting design: Anna Cecelia Martin. Costume design: Naila Aladdin Sanders. Whether or not you are an ideal husband or wife, bring your ideal significant other to Sierra Madre Playhouse to enjoy “An Ideal Husband”. January 17th thru Sunday February 23rd, 2014. For reservations, please call (626) 355-4318.

The dam overlooks the roughly 300-acre Park which is home to thousands of trees, plants, hiking and equestrian trails, the nation’s first Frisbee golf course, Tom Sawyer Kid’s Camp, Move A Child Higher (autism & disabilities rehabilitation center), Rose Bowl Riders Equestrian Center -- all are threatened by this Sediment Removal and Management Project as outlined in DPW’s Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) now being circulated for public comment.

be a result of the County’s efforts to over-compensate for years of neglect and poor sediment management. Both committees and countless citizens believe that public safety can be protected by excavating a much smaller area and regularly sluicing more water and sand downstream to the eroding California coastline. With a far less intrusive and destructive project over a longer period of time, the County will accomplish its goal of assuring public safety while allowing people who love and use Hahamongna Watershed Park to continue to enjoy its many recreational opportunities, protect its wildlife and preserve one of L.A.

Some government agencies such as the California Regional Control Board don’t agree and have denied approval. The County has also created a credibility gap with the Rose Bowl Operating Committee by saying in 2011 that the Rose Bowl was in danger of flooding without massive sediment removal. But the County’s own maps, provided to the State of California in a 2012 grant application, show absolutely no flood danger to this area, even during storm season. And two City of Pasadena advisory committees say the facts don’t add up. They have just recommended that the City oppose the alternatives outlined in the County’s draft EIR. According to their analysis there is not enough evidence to support this “too big dig” which may

By SHEL SEGAL season. “We don’t particularly have a lot of size, but there’s some speed,” he said. “The speed of our guards is going to be important to us. Our senior point guard is going to be Daren Sue. He’s a returning varsity player and he’s in charge of running the team. We’re looking for him to have a big year.” Cordeiro added Sue has been instrumental off the court so far as the season approaches. “He’s a leader,” Cordeiro said of Sue. “He’s done a good job during the offseason of getting these guys to work hard in the weight room and out on the track and with conditioning.” However, Sue’s counterpart at guard has not yet been selected. “We’re still up in the air as far as who’s going to be the guard opposite him,” Cordeiro said. “There’s a few juniors who are candidates. There’s Brandon Wong, who’s a junior. The other is Brendan Tran. He’s also in contention for one of those guard spots. They’re both good outside shooters. They’re working hard and they’re competing for that

spot.” Cordeiro said look for Brandon Hardy to be the Apaches starting center. “He’s a young junior – young meaning inexperienced on varsity – and he’s about 6-foot-3,” Cordeiro said. We’re not a tall team, but we’re hoping to get up and down. He rebounds well and he can shoot. He’s developing a jump hook.” Starting at forward should be returning varsity starter Joseph Leonard. “He’s one of hustlers, a rebounder and good at setting screens a he’s a solid role player for us,” Cordeiro said. Cordeiro added his other choice for forward is an interesting one. “Our other forward is new to varsity this year,” he said. “It’s Peter Panah. He started out as a manager and was working out on the court everyday at 6:30 a.m. working hard. We did notice. Peter’s gone from being the manager to being one of our starting players. It’s a really good story for him.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com. Follow him via Twitter @segallanded.)

El Monte City Council and officials take oath of office By Dena Burroughs

At an Oath of Office Ceremony held at the El Monte High School Auditorium, the elected El Monte City Council, Clerk, and Treasurer were sworn into service the afternoon of Sunday, Dec. 8. The program began with an introduction by City Manager Raul Godinez II, followed by an invocation by Father Alberto Villalobos from the local Nativity Church, the Pledge of Allegiance by the 2013 Senior Citizen of the year Armando Hernandez, and the National Anthem sung by three members of the El Monte Police Department – Lt. Ben Lowry, Cpl. Dave Avalos, and Cpl. Aram Choe. Public servants from nearby cities were present for the occasion, including Councilmembers from South El Monte, Monterey Park, and Baldwin Park. El Monte Councilwoman Victoria Martinez presented a retirement recognition to outgoing City Treasurer Henry Velasco, thanking him for 32 years of public service that added nicely to his many other accomplishments, including his service in Korea and a family life that has already turned him into the greatgrandfather of two. Councilman Bart Patel then recognized retiring Lorene Gutierrez, who served as the El Monte City Clerk

for the past 14 years. She, in turn, sworn-in the newly elected City Clerk, Jonathan Hawes, who thanked the residents for trusting him and encouraged “constructive criticism” from the City Council as he grows into his duties. With an aura of rockstatus, elected City Treasurer Jerry Velasco had a cheering section present as he was sworn in by former Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, with his friend Mike Gomez next to him holding the Bible. Velasco promised to work towards becoming “the best City Treasurer the City has ever had.” Councilman Juventino

“J” Gomez was sworn-in by L.A. County Board of Supervisor’s Michael D. Antonovich. Gomez’ young grandson stood by his side holding the Bible. Mayor Pro Tem Norma Macias took the oath repeating after Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez and accompanied by Carlos Barraza, and then Mayor Andre Quintero brought the ceremony to completion swearing into office with the aid of Congresswoman Grace Napolitano. The local political powerhouse then moved to El Monte Community Center for a congratulatory reception.

Monastery in Sierra Madre Continued from page 1

that is upsetting. “The monastery sent out a letter to the nearby neighbors,” Bryant said. “Then there’s been this kind of firestorm of concern going on. I think it hit everybody by surprise. We expected when you have such a beautiful property like that somebody would have gotten the word out and had some discussion in the community before they turn it into a housing project.” However, Manual Valencia, a deacon at the center, said while the passionists aren’t happy with selling, either, they see no other alternative. “We need money to pay for the healthcare for our brothers, many of whom are up in age,” Valencia said. “They worked

their whole lives. They deserve it. We feel this is the easiest way to do this.” But Bryant said while that is understood, he said the letter and where the passionists actual in the process are two different things. “We think they have a real estate broker,” he said. “They’ve received proposals – they’ve narrowed it down to four proposals – so it’s pretty advanced. The concern we have is that is the letter we received is about how they’re in the preliminary stages. It talks about getting input from neighbors when the fact of the matter is once they select a developer, now we’re going to be wrangling with a developer. They’re outside of Sierra Madre. They don’t give a rip about Sierra Madre. That seems to be

contrary to what the person at the monastery told us, that this thing is pretty far along.” In addition, Bryant said he would really like to see the site preserved as it is an important place to many. “We have a lot different constituents who care about that property,” he said. “We have Catholic parishes that come from all over the place. Their retreat schedule for 2014 is amazing. You have people coming from all over California, it seems like. A lot of people get spiritual uplifting over there. Then you have non-religious people come there and take a walk there. They feel like they’re getting back to nature.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

Typhoon Yolanda, which struck the central Philippines on November 8, was one the worst storms in history, leaving more than 4,000 dead, 18,500 injured and four million Filipinos displaced, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Pasadena PD initiates "see something, say something" awareness campaign a two prong approach, 1) Intelligence gathering from the people who live, visit and work in Pasadena, and 2) Information sharing through enrollment in “nixle”, a trusted, nation-wide alert system managed by police and fire departments. Individuals are being asked to register, free of cost, to receive real-time public safety messages by text messages, e-mail or the web. It only takes a few minutes and enrollees choose the jurisdictions and message types they want to receive (community, advisory or alert). People who reside outside the city but plan to visit for New Year’s events are also encouraged to enroll. Sign up at “nixle. com”. The Tournament of Roses is also taking an active role in the “See Something,

Say Something” campaign and they are spreading the message through parade and game literature. Also, look for the Police Department’s 2014 Parade Watch decal. For additional information regarding Pasadena’s “See Something, Say Something” campaign, please view the video at http://www.ci.pasadena. ca.us/Police. “The Pasadena Police Department’s “See Something, Say Something” campaign harnesses the public’s awareness about public safety, local domestic terrorism, and about the issues associated with these kinds of attacks. Collectively, we will continue to provide safe and enjoyable events in the City of Pasadena,” stated Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez.

Annual Santa float for El Monte’s young Santa Claus and his favorite elves will travel throughout El Monte on the City’s Santa Float, spreading holiday joy and good will to residents.

The PCC student and faculty volunteers were part of the 150 to 200 volunteers who showed up at the Rose Bowl, attracted by the appeals on the PCC campus, by FilAm TV, by the City of Pasadena and others.

“For ninety years, PCC has always been there for our community,” said Dr. Mark Rocha, PCC SuperintendentPresident. “The Board of Trustees and I are so proud of our faculty, staff and students who continue our tradition of social consciousness by lending a hand wherever it is needed.”

The City of Duarte thanked outstanding community volunteers for their service to the community at the Annual Mayor's Prayer Breakfast and Community Recognition Awards, Nov. 27 held at City of Hope Cooper Auditorium.

The Pasadena Police Department and Pasadena community are working together to enhanced safety measures in preparation for the upcoming 2014 Rose Parade, and the Rose Bowl and BCS Championship Games. Police employees and trained police volunteers are going door-to-door to businesses on Colorado Boulevard educating residents and visitors on the role they play in community safety. This proactive approach is an extension of the nationwide campaign to raise public awareness of indicators of terrorism and crime prevention through the early reporting of suspicious activity, known as “See Something, Say Something”. The Pasadena Police Department is improving the City’s preparedness to a critical event through

team effort. Johnny Kambingan Restaurant provided craft services for the PCC and other volunteers on location during the event. Resa Recalde of the Pasadena Seventh Day Adventist Church helped coordinate volunteers.

Pasadena City College, through its public relations office, reached out for partners in responding, and joined the team being coordinated by Filipino American Television, headquartered in Pasadena and the City of Pasadena, through Vice Mayor Jacque Robinson. Two critical members of the team were the American Red Cross, which coordinated the cash collection and lent expertise and resources, and Victory Cargo, which donated the shipping of the donated goods. Also on the team was PNB-Remittance Centers, Inc., a money remittance company serving the FilipinoAmerican community. The Langham Hotel in Pasadena donated 700 blankets. A donation center was set up in the Rose Bowl on November 14, where dozens of PCC students and faculty worked side by side with volunteers from other organizations to collect, organize and prepare for shipment the donated canned goods, non-perishable food, toiletries and clothes. Dr. Valerie Wardlaw, PCC’s interim director of public relations praised those from the college who rolled up their sleeves and involved themselves in the collection drive.

Filipino American Television captured the receiving of donations by PCC and other volunteers, then followed the shipment to the Philippines to document the disbursement of goods to those in need. The Pasadena-based TV station, known by its shorthand FilAm TV, on Digital Channel 31.3, prepared a documentary on the

The American Red Cross collected $21,159, thanks in large part to a generous $10,000 matching gift from Mercy Steenwyk of Forensis Group, a company providing expert witness to the legal system. Victory Cargo, a service company that facilitates trading between Indonesia, China and Singapore, was the lead sponsor for cargo shipments collected at the donation drive.

PCC students and volunteers accept and organize donations at the Rose Bowl collection center alongside the American Red Cross and others on the relief team.

Ben Green, CEO of the San Gabriel/ Pomona Valley American Red Cross, said, “The participation of students and faculty members of Pasadena City College demonstrated their commitment to involvement in important community activities. It was nice to see the students and faculty working together for a common cause.”

Supplies gathered by PCC and money collected in the drive that PCC helped organize and staff with volunteers were distributed at a distribution point like this one in Dagami, on the island of Leyte. Photo: Patrick Fuller, IFRC

Former Santa Anita employee Ambrosio Maldonado celebrates 90th

American Lung Association cautions against wood-burning and urges cleaner alternatives for winter heat With the arrival of the holidays and cooler temperatures, the American Lung Association in California is urging the public to avoid wood burning and to consider cleaner burning alternatives. Burning wood emits harmful toxins and fine particles into the air that can worsen asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). “Breathing particle pollution – or soot –can shorten life and send those most at risk to the emergency room,” said Kari Nadeau, MD, PhD, researcher and volunteer physician for the American Lung Association in California. “Wood smoke particles are so small, they can bypass the airway defenses and enter directly into the lung and bloodstream and can cause damage to cells, and lead to lung disease and heart attacks.” As with any pollution, children are especially at risk. Their lungs do not fully form until the age of 18 and exposure to higher levels of wood smoke can lead to re-

duced lung function and risk of future lung disease. For children with asthma, breathing wood smoke can lead to serious asthma attacks and breathing emergencies. What Southern California Residents Can Do To Breathe Easier This Fall and Winter: • Enjoy the glow without the smoke –natural gas, propane, pellet stoves and electric devices are all cleaner alternatives. • Convert a woodburning fireplace or stove to use either natural gas or propane to eliminate exposure to the dangerous fumes wood burning generates. Any wood burning, even with wood burning stove inserts, still emits harmful particles that can contribute to dangerous air pollution. • Directly vent heating devices outside the home to reduce exposure to carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide and other emissions produced by these energy sources. • Follow the South

Coast Air Quality Management District’s (SCAQMD) wood burning regulation which is in effect through the end of February. For more information, visit www. aqmd.gov or call 800-2887664. • SCAQMD is currently offering incentives for residents in portions of the Inland Empire and Boyle Heights to replace residential wood-burning devices with cleaner-burning alternatives. Depending on the device being upgraded, up to $800 is available and incentives of up to $1,600 are available for low-income residents. Funding is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit www.aqmd.gov to see which area ZIP codes qualify for the funding. For more information about the health effects of particle pollution from wood burning and ways to improve lung health, please visit our website at www. lung.org or call 1-800-LUNGUSA (1-800-586-4872).

Dating back to 1934, four generations of the Maldonado family were represented as employees at Santa Anita and Ambrosio Maldonado’s 90th birthday on Saturday. Raised in Pasadena and employed as a masonry Laborer at Santa Anita from 1945 to 1972, Ambrosio Maldonado followed in the footsteps of his father, Elpidio Maldonado, who worked at Santa Anita from 1934 to 1967. “Santa Anita has meant a great deal to my family dating back all the way to 1934,” said Jerry

Maldonado, who also worked at the track in various capacities from 1988 to 1995. “My dad is approaching an important milestone and we thought Santa Anita would be a perfect place to celebrate 90 years and to rekindle some great memories of his here at the track.” In addition to Elpidio, Ambrosio and Jerry Maldonado, Jerry’s brother, Joe, worked at Santa Anita for 31 years prior to his retirement in 2003, and his son, Joe Jr., is currently employed at the track with 20 years of service dedi-

cated primarily to keeping Santa Anita’s picturesque grounds green and vibrant. “We have so many friends and family members that have had so many great moments here—my mom and everyone in the family is very excited about my dad’s birthday party. Santa Anita’s traditional winter/spring meeting will open on Thursday, Dec. 26. For more information, or to make reservations, please visit santaanita.com or call (626) 574-RACE.

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___

Ever go to one of those stores where you have to take a number to be served…. only to find that your wait is considerably longer than you had anticipated? Well, if you shop locally at the mom and pop stores this doesn’t happen. Monrovia Old Town shops and restaurants decided a long time ago that it doesn’t work to guilt customers into spending their hard-earned cash in our small businesses. Guilt is simply not a good marketing tool. “We provide a fair exchange, dollar for value -- the same concept that applies to all business, large or small,” Pam Fitzpatrick told Beacon Media. “Our small businesses provide unique, quality goods and services for a fair

price – and, maybe even more important, we provide that one-on-one personal service that only an ownerinvolved business can give. We know our customers and their families, and we know their names. We know what they eat and what they like, and because talk to them (and listen to their answers) we stock what they want to

buy.

We realize that we here in Old Town are sometimes second on the list, after that obligatory stock-up run to WalMart, but we don’t mind that. We all save the best for last, don’t we? So we’re the later-in-the day, relaxing experience, or that lazy Saturday time with the kids. And we suspect that the current

LASD Deputy March Memorial rededicated Wednesday The Irwindale Police Officers’ Association, in partnership with the Temple Sheriff’s Station and the Irwindale Police Department held a brief re-dedication ceremony for the new David March memorial on Wednesday, December 11. Deputy David March was shot and killed after stopping a vehicle in Irwindale, California, at approximately 10:40 am. The suspect had stated to friends that he wanted to kill a police officer during a traffic stop. The suspect intentionally got stopped and waited for Deputy March to get in front of his patrol car so he could open fire, as Deputy March would have no place to take cover. Deputy March was shot several times in the head and chest. The suspect, who was identified shortly after the shooting, fled to Mexico where he remained for 4

years. On February 23, 2006, the suspect was arrested in Mexico by US Marshals and Mexican federal agents following a joint investigation. He was extradited back to California and on March 2nd, 2007, he plead guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Deputy March had served with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for 7 years. He is survived by his wife and stepdaughter. The memorial dedicated to Deputy Dave March was destroyed on November 28, 2013 in an early morning traffic collision. The memorial was originally built by the Irwindale Peace Officers’ Association (IPOA) as a tribute to Deputy March following his death. When the memorial was destroyed, IPOA, without hesitation, took it

upon themselves to rebuild the memorial to continue Deputy March’s memory. The entire memorial was rebuilt within one week due to IPOA’s diligence and commitment. Temple Sheriff’s Station, as well at the entire Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is forever grateful for IPOA’s initiative.

Chemical gases exposed in Monrovia Continued from page 1

to identify the chemical and treat patients. Nine people were hospitalized with two requiring immediate care and IV support, according to Newell. In the earliest hours HazMats crews were seen working to try to identify the mystery chemicals since identified as Cyclo Aliphathic resin, Boron trifluoride, and Ancamine. Firefighters were decontaminated by fellow firefighters in their turnouts after being exposed to the gases as a precaution. Of those 200 people exposed to the chemical gases, 45 became symptomatic, reporting dizziness and other symptoms. One of the main thoroughfares in Monrovia, Myrtle Avenue, was temporarily closed from Duarte Rd to the freeway to allow for ambulances to come in and out of the area. Officials asked residents near the immediate area to shelter in place until the hazardous material could be identified and contained. The mutual aid from area cities included Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena and Arcadia Fire departments. The investigation is ongoing.

Irwindale Speedway looks toward Nascar short track racing: Season 15 Irwindale Speedway has announced an actionpacked 2014 NASCAR season line-up with seventeen exciting Saturday nights of spectacular short track racing featuring ticket prices which have not changed since the track’s inaugural season in 1999. “We think that we’re just about the very best value in live outdoor entertainment anywhere, and we want to keep our show affordable for families,” said Irwindale Event Center President/ CEO Jim Cohan. “We’ve worked to hold the line on ticket prices for 2014, and we know that our fans appreciate our efforts.” Ticket prices for any of the Speedway’s seventeen NASCAR Whelen AllAmerican Series races are only $15 each, Kids 6-12 are $5, with youngsters 5 and

under FREE. (Just for the record, those are the same prices that fans paid during the track’s 1999 season.) 2014 SEASON TICKETS: By popular demand for 2014 there’s a special NASCAR season ticket package available which guarantees Irwindale fans a great seat for all seventeen events listed below for the very attractive price of only $99. There’s also a companion VIP (close-in) parking deal for all of the below events at $99. And fans can save even more by buying the “combo”: A 2014 season ticket and VIP parking for every Irwindale NASCAR race for only $189! Racing begins at Irwindale on Saturday night, April 5 with a great card of NASCAR favorites which this year will see

the featured Late Model Division racing twice on each of their first nine nights of racing. They’ll be running “Twin 25s” (two complete 25-lap races) every night except for October 18. Those first eighteen races will count toward NASCAR state and national titles in the division. Preview Day: On Saturday, March 29, fans will be urged to join the racers and crews as they prepare for the season ahead. Irwindale’s grandstands will be open to the public. Fans will have a chance to see many of Irwindale’s top drivers in action as they limber up for the exciting 2014 NASCAR season at the Speedway. That’s Saturday, March 29, 11am - 3pm. Admission and parking both will be free on that day.

Temple City needs your input As part of its ongoing community visioning process, the City of Temple City invites residents and local business owners to participate in a strategic planning workshop on Thursday, Dec. 12, from 7-9 p.m. at Longden Elementary School’s Memoli Hall (9501 Wendon St.). The Strategic Plan uses public input to help inform City policymaking and resource allocation, based on nine City Council-established goals: Vision and Long-Range Planning, Sound Fiscal Policy, Public Health and Safety,

Sustainable Infrastructure, Economic Development, Basic City Services, Redevelopment, Quality of Life, and Citizen Education and Communication. Ultimately, the resulting document will help prioritize City projects and programs for the next three to five years, and chart a path for the City’s future growth and development. “We have always prided ourselves in our commitment to quality municipal services, and the inclusion of community members in the decision-

making process,” comments Mayor Cynthia Sternquist. “As we approach the start of the New Year, the time for reflection is now, and more importantly, it’s a time to look towards the future.” Refreshments will be provided. For more information, visit www. maketchappen.com<http:// www.maketchappen.com>, or contact Giselle Corella in the City Manager’s Office at gcorella@templecity. us<mailto:gcorella@ templecity.us> or (626) 2852171.

Governor Brown signs compact with Karuk Tribe Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today signed a tribal-state gaming compact between the State of California and the Karuk Tribe. The Karuk Tribe is the second largest tribe in California with approximately 3,700 members and is located in one of the most economically depressed regions of the State. The revenue generated by the gaming facility will provide the Karuk government with additional means to promote

the healthcare, educational, natural resource and other needs of the membership of the Tribe. Although, as required by federal law, the Tribe will be the primary beneficiary of its gaming operation, the construction of the gaming facility itself will result in a substantial investment of economic resources in the surrounding community. The compact includes provisions to protect employees and patrons as well as measures that the Tribe must take to protect

the environment during the construction and operation of gaming facilities. The compact allows the operation of a maximum of 1,500 slot machines. The Tribe will pay to the State its pro rata share of the costs the State incurs for the performance of its duties under the compact as well as 10 percent of the casino’s net win, if it operates more than 350 devices, to be shared with non-gaming tribes within California.

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.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale.

The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney.

In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee`s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right.

Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property. Notice to Property Owner The sale date shown on this Notice of Sale may be postponed one or more times by the Mortgagee, Beneficiary, Trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about Trustee Sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.

Tournament of Roses formed in 1895 Continued from page 1

to show off to the rest of the nation California’s beautiful climate and mild and blooming winter. The Valley Hunt Club put on the first few parades. However, when the event got too big in 1895, the Tournament of Roses Association was formed. The association’s headquarters are now located on Orange Grove Boulevard in an Italian Renaissance-style mansion originally owned by chewing gum tycoon William Wrigley, Jr.

The building was given to the association upon his wife’s death in 1958. The parade begins in front of the association headquarters, moves north and makes a right onto Colorado Boulevard, where it heads east for several miles before turning onto Sierra Madre Boulevard and ending at Victory Park. The parade has followed this route – all 5.5 miles of it – for several decades. And it takes approximately two hours for an individual participant to

complete the parade route. Taking part in the parade are dozens of floats, marching bands, equestrian units and other types of entries. Usually there are more than 100 entities registered to march in the parade. The floats are decorated by volunteers in and around the Pasadena area and are spectacular to see. All of the surfaces of a float need to be covered by natural materials, such as flowers, plants or seeds, and artificial flowers or plants are not permitted as

well as artificial coloring. The parade has a grand marshal with this year’s honoree being legendary and longtime Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully. Last year’s grand marshal was British anthropologist Jane Goodall. Actors John Wayne and Bob Hope also served as grand marshal in the past. The tournament also hosts the Rose Bowl game at the Rose Bowl stadium. First played in 1902, this year’s game between Stanford Uni-

versity and Michigan State University will feature the 100th overall Rose Bowl contest. The stadium – which recently went through an amazing renovation – first hosted the Rose Bowl game in 1923. The stadium’s design was taken from the Yale Bowl in New Haven, Conn. That 1902 game was called “Tournament EastWest Football Game,” but wasn’t completely loved by the fans. So, for the next several years the as-

sociation ran chariot races, ostrich races and a variety of other events to please the crowds. And if you’re asking why the parade is never on a Sunday, here is the official explanation from the Tournament of Roses Association’s website: to avoid frightening horses tethered outside local churches and thus interfering with worship services.
