Protesters ask El Monte students to stop work on Rose Parade float by dena burroughs While most often float preparation for the Rose Parade represents hours of camaraderie and volunteerism, this year it also included protests against SeaWorld’s entry. PETA supporters showed up at various float

decorating locations to voice their feelings against the “Sea of Surprises,” which was the float that the members of the El Monte Arroyo High School Marching Band had been assigned to work on. For years these students have exchanged hours of work gluing flowers to the floats

for financial support for the band’s annual activities. SeaWorld’s float depicted a young snorkeler enjoying himself in the ocean near a reef, surrounded by orca whales, dolphins and sea turtles. On Saturday, Dec. 28, as Please see page 5

1,400 Foothill Unity Center lowincome families, including more than 1,700 children, received a helping of cheer at the Center's 21st Annual Holiday Distribution, held Saturday and Monday, December 21 and 23. The event was held in Ayers Hall at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia (Saturday) and at the Center's Monrovia and Pasadena locations (Monday). Clients came from across the agency's elevencity service area Pasadena, Altadena, South Pasadena, Arcadia, Sierra Madre, Monrovia, Duarte, Azusa, Baldwin Park and Irwindale. Families and individuals took home holiday food boxes sized by number of people in the family, with meat and the makings for a festive holiday dinner. Some 600700 volunteers worked the program, from planning and preparation to final cleanup. Each client was personally escorted through the distribution by a dedicated cart volunteer. Simplicity Bank, Volunteer Center of the San Gabriel Valley and The Gas Co. all presented $1,000 checks to the Center in support of the event. On the Saturday distribution at the Arboretum, reserved for families with children, each family also took home an opaque bag prepacked with new toys and clothing for each child. The presents are donated via the Center's Adopt an Angel program, where individuals and groups adopt paper angels handdecorated by volunteers from schools, churches and other groups. Each angel lists a child's gift wishes.

"We don't give the presents directly to the children," says Center Executive Director Betty McWilliams. "Each family's gifts are gathered in an opaque bag and given to the parents to wrap and give as part of their own holiday traditions." Ducommun Aero Structures also donated 35 bicycles to be raffled at the distribution, and Simply Help gave gifts to each child. Children also enjoyed fun activities, including a holiday craft project with the help of elves from Paint 'n Play, and had their pictures taken with Santa courtesy LA PartyWorks, with frames provided by the Global Federation of Chinese Business Women. While a majority of the Center's clients are employed, all have incomes at or below 150% of the National Poverty Level. This year, that's $1,436 per month for one person and $2,944 a month for a family of four. "The holidays are an especially difficult time for families who fight hunger every day," says Center Executive Director Betty McWilliams. "The difficult economy and cuts in the CalFresh food stamp program are swelling the ranks of local people who need help to feed their families. Community support is more vital than ever to help them and let them know that their neighbors really do care." Funds in support of the Center's programs may be donated securely online at foothillunitycenter. org. Food and checks may be dropped off weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at either Center location: 415 W. Chestnut Ave. in Mon-

rovia or 191 N. Oak Ave. in Pasadena. Just part of a yearlong hunger fight The Holiday Distribution is only one aspect of the Center's yearround Family Food Program, which provided over 3.6 million pounds of groceries to foodinsecure clients last year. Each month, clients receive a grocery cart of food items, sized by number of people in the family to supplement needs for 710 days. They may return to pick up perishable food items once a week, including fresh produce, dairy and baked goods. The Center also delivers monthly food packages to qualified homebound senior and disabled clients, and gives 50 to 60 substantial bag lunches (enough for about two days) three times a week to homeless or those who have no place to store or cook food. Its volunteerrun Pet Food Bank helped 726 families keep their pets last year. The Center also provides referrals to over 100 organizations for crisis and housing assistance, employment counseling, and much more. Its Health Services Child Health Connection program connects children with urgent health care needs to free and lowcost care, helps uninsured clients enroll for lowcost insurance coverage, and conducts health screenings and education seminars. It also operates a Medical Outreach Clinic in partnership with the Community Health Alliance of Pasadena (ChapCare) providing health and dental care to homeless and uninsured adult clients.

Governor Brown grants 127 pardons On the eve of Christmas, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. announced that he has granted 127 pardons. The individuals granted pardons all completed their sentences and have been released from custody for more than a decade without further criminal activity. Individuals who have been convicted of a crime in California may apply to the

Governor for a pardon. Most applicants for a pardon have obtained a Certificate of Rehabilitation, which is an order from a superior court declaring that a person convicted of a crime is now rehabilitated. A gubernatorial pardon may be granted to people who have demonstrated exemplary behavior and have lived productive and lawabiding lives following their

conviction. Pardons are not granted unless they are earned. When a pardon is granted, the California Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are notified so that they may update their records on the applicant. The pardon is filed with the Secretary of State and the Legislature, and it is a public record.

Jan. 1617: Free lecture – The Mars Exploration Rovers: a decade of exploration It was inconceivable that a rover mission designed for 90 days of operation would still be operating after a decade in the harsh environment of the Red Planet's frigid surface. In spite of our limited human imagination, the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity is still functioning and exploring 10 years after landing on Mars. For a decade now, the rover has been dutifully conducting field geology on the Martian surface day after day. Opportunity and her twin, Spirit, have traversed great plains, climbed mountains, descended into deep craters

and survived roverkilling dust storms and frigid winters. The rovers have made significant scientific discoveries in understanding the Red Planet, finding evidence of past habitable environments that could possibly have supported life. Although Spirit's mission concluded after an unimaginable six years, exciting adventures of exploration still lie ahead for the very capable Opportunity rover even after 10 years. A celebratory 10th anniversary event will be held on Jan. 16 in Beckman Auditorium on the Caltech campus. Then, on Jan. 17, a

lecture will be presented at the Pasadena City College Forum. Both events are free and open to the public. All events start at 7 p.m. and seating is on a first come, first served basis. The Jan. 16 event's participants will include Steve Squyres of Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y., principal investigator for Spirit and Opportunity; Bill Nye, CEO of the Planetary Society, Pasadena; and members of the rover operations team. Also, the Jan. 16 event will be streamed live at http://ustream.tv/NASAJPL .Contact: Guy Webster 8183546278

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.

Assemblyman Mike Gatto's new laws

bill, AB 61, guarantees that parking spots remain available to the motorists, shop owners, and small businesses that rely on them, even when the meter is not working properly. “Taxpayers already pay for street maintenance, meter installation, and meter upkeep,” said Gatto. “Local governments should take responsibility and keep parking meters in good working order, not squeeze a doublepenalty out of cashstrapped citizens.” Simultaneously, motorists who flee the scene of an accident will find it more difficult to "run out the clock" once Assemblyman Gatto’s AB 184 takes effect. The legislation provides an additional tool to lawenforcement officers investigating hitandrun offenses by extending the statute of limitations on hitandrun incidents that result in death or serious bodily injury. “AB 184 will allow victims of hitandruns and law enforcement to obtain justice from cowards who do everything possible to avoid responsibility for their ac-

tions,” said Gatto. “Thousands of hitandrun victims suffer lifethreatening injuries annually. Allowing the perpetrators to avoid prosecution just adds insult to these injuries.” Environmentalists and local governments will also have new tools available to them this year once Assemblyman Gatto’s AB 440 takes effect. AB 440 transfers certain powers to cities, counties, and other localgovernment entities to cleanup toxic contamination, and provides protection for individuals, organizations, and lenders who work to cleanup contaminated properties. “Rehabilitation of communities is good for our neighborhoods and good for the environment,” said Gatto. “By extending greater authority to local governments, we can clean and recycle contaminated property, bring jobs and housing to where people need it most, and help bring our cities into the 21st century.” Another expanded tool for local governments also has animal lovers celebrating and dog tails wag-

ging. AB 265 will help communities afford and create dog parks by shielding cities and counties from liability they face when operating dog parks and protects them from litigants who claim, for example, that they were unaware of the potential dangers of such parks. “Dog parks help build safer and stronger communities by providing a public space for neighbors to interact while training and socializing their dogs,” said Assemblyman Gatto. “We should not allow liability concerns to be a major barrier to creating these valuable spaces, especially in small and mediumsized cities that cannot afford to selfinsure.” Mike Gatto is the Chairman of the Appropriations Committee in the California State Assembly. He represents Burbank, Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Montrose, and the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Atwater Village, East Hollywood, Franklin Hills, Hollywood Hills, Los Feliz, and Silver Lake. www. asm.ca.gov/gatto

Pasadena's Jet Propulsion Laboratory may be best known for its unparalleled scientific endeavors such as landing the Curiosity Rover on the surface of Mars, but on Tuesday, January 7, another side of the organization will be on display.

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

Why Classic?

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

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

able to continue to collect usage data.

Compliance through great patient care

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

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

Our CPAP Circle of Care® program

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

Interested in learning more? www.classicsleepcare.com

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

Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance

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

Skeptical?

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

‘Gentlemen...You can’t fight in here. This is the War room!’ –

Smart Women Smart Money

Peter Sellers as President Merkin Muffley. Sellers also plays Dr. Strangelove and Group Captain Mandrake in the classic film A 50th anniversary screening of Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb will launch the Allendale Branch Library’s new series “Critical Mass: The Culture of the Cold War,” on Saturday, January 11, 2014, at 2:00 p.m. “Critical Mass: The Culture of the Cold War” will explore the impact of the Cold War on American culture through music, art, literature, motion pictures, television, and other media. Produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick, Dr. Strangelove is a wildly absurd “Doomsday” comedy which satirizes U.S. Cold War hysteria and the threat of nuclear Armageddon. The film premiered in January 1964, in the depths of the Cold War era, when the U.S. and Soviet Union were engaged in a tensionfilled race for nuclear arms superiority. The movie’s plot centers on a psychotic, “Commie”hating U.S. Air Force General (played by Sterling Hayden) who launches a nuclear air strike on the Soviet Union, while the President of the United States, his advisers, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff attempt to recall the bombers to prevent nuclear annihilation. Peter Sellers is featured in a tourdeforce performance in three roles, including Dr. Strangelove, a wheelchairbound madman who is the President’s main nuclear

strategist. Much of the film takes place in the Pentagon’s War Room, a cavernous set featuring a circular conference table and the “Big Board,” a massive graphicdisplay strategic map with blinking lights, not dissimilar to an illuminated pinball game, which tracks the bombers as they approach their Soviet targets. This amazing set inspired one of the movie’s most memorable lines, which would become a cultural reference point for future generations, delivered by the President: “Gentlemen. You can’t fight in here. This is the War Room!” Dr. Strangelove was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role (Peter Sellers), Best Director (Stanley Kubrick), and Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium (Stanley Kubrick, Peter George, and Terry Southern). In addition to Peter Sellers and Sterling Hayden, the allstar cast includes George C. Scott, Keenan Wynn, and Slim Pickens. The program will also include a screening of First Time Here, a short film produced and directed by Richard Myers and also premiered in 1964. The Grand Prize winner at the 1964 Ann Arbor Film Festival, First Time Here freely associates several dreams with the story of four wom-

en who had an atomic bomb display at a carnival. One of America’s most renowned and accomplished independent filmmakers since the 1960s, Myers created the film as “a fantasy which represented various life cycles and, in a sense, to be a celebration of the absurd mess man has gotten himself into.” The screening, which is free of charge and open to the public, will be introduced by Fred Glienna, a Pasadena resident and Stanley Kubrick aficionado. Refreshments will be served. Also featured will be a display of books and historic photographs related to the Cold War.

El Monte students to stop work on the Rose Parade float Continued from page 1

the students pasted coconut flakes on the structure, they heard PETA supporters call them out directly with lines like: “Arroyo Band, don’t work on that float,” and saw a line of protesters, even one dressed like an orca, holding signs that read: “Respect Life: Boycott SeaWorld,” and “Get orca abuse out of the Rose Parade.” PETA has been vocal against SeaWorld since “Blackfish,” the CNN documentary that aired in October that discussed the death of a trainer and

the living situation of orcas at SeaWorld’s parks. In a news release PETA said that the float had “no resemblance whatsoever to an orca’s life of severe confinement at SeaWorld, where these magnificent animals are kept restricted to tiny concrete tanks… forced to perform cheap, circusstyle tricks.” SeaWorld did not discuss “Blackfish” directly, but it paid to place an open letter on eight newspapers, including the L.A. Times, underlining its dedication to marine life

and its care for orcas. The letter ended by stating that when SeaWorld’s guests “leave with a greater appreciation for the importance of the sea, educated about the animals that live there and inspired to make a difference, we have done our job.” While experiencing the protest was new for the Arroyo band members, it was not a surprise. The school band leaders knew that PETA was planning a protest and had told the youngsters about it ahead of time.

As the calendar flips over to a new year, this is an ideal time for a little financial housekeeping and retirement preparation. Many people put off making a critical review of their financial trajectory. Now that the heady holidays are over, there’s no better time to take stock. Here are a few suggestions: Crunch your budget numbers to see how much money you really have. Then, sit down and calculate what you can comfort-

ably spend this year and be vigilant about sticking to that limit. Make sure you review and understand any repayment terms with your creditors. Financial discipline takes practice, so get into the habit of budgeting and, most importantly, tracking your expenses. Check your gains and losses. Verify your current retirement account balances to ensure they’re on track to reach your goals. Remember, you can deduct up to $3,000 for a capital loss against ordinary income. Talk to a qualified tax consultant on this one, especially if you’re in doubt whether to sell off an investment ‘gone wrong’ or to continue holding it. Review your beneficiaries. Was there a life event last year that might alter your intentions? You may want to update the persons you've named on your retirement plans and insurance policies. Maximize your retirement savings. Sock away as much as you can in taxadvantage savings accounts. It’s important to make full use of any employersponsored matching programs. Ask your H.R. department about “catchup” provisions made available to people 50 years and older. See if you can increase your 401(k) or IRA contribution. Many employers may match these salary deferrals. If you can afford to add to

your longterm investment through an IRA, don’t hesitate. Set aside some time this year to learn more about the intricacies of traditional IRAs, Roth IRA and 401(k) s. Such financial knowledge can be invaluable. Finally, you may want to rebalance your retirement portfolio. As market conditions change, so should your investment strategy. Keep track of the rate of return on stock and bond funds as well as any individual stocks you hold. Did they meet your expectations? If you’re unable to put more money into your retirement savings, reallocating your portfolio may be a good way to get more out of it. Consider having a Certified Financial Planner evaluate last year’s performance and offer recommendations for a sustainable path forward. To submit a question, please email me at smartwomen@ehfinancial.com or call (626) 9438833. Have a safe and memorable New Year’s everyone.

Firefighters give thanks & look forward to New Year

Firefighters are thankful that in 2013, Governor Jerry Brown denied parole for convicted arsonist Mario Catanio who killed LA City Firefighter Thomas Taylor in 1981 and remains in prison. They also are thankful to Councilmember Paul Krekorian and others who successfully lobbied the Parole Board to keep Mr. Catanio in prison. Firefighters are hopeful that in 2014 Governor Brown will sign the Firefighter Death Benefits Bill (A UFLAC Local 112 sponsored bill authored by the

Speaker of the Assembly John Perez) so that Firefighters throughout California will know that their children and loved ones will be protected in the event of their passing through duty related causes. “We are thankful that in 2013 a number of LA City Firefighters survived near death incidents fighting fires throughout the City. From the Sumac Lane structure fire to the high rise fire in West LA to church fires in South LA and countless other close calls, our firefighters

suffered permanent injuries including critical burns, the loss of lung capacity, and other close calls on a daily basis protecting property and saving lives. We are thankful that Councilmembers Mitch Englander and Curren Price took the time to visit some of our critically injured Firefighters in the hospital. “We are hopeful that in 2014, our injured Firefighters will continue to recover and fewer will need to be treated at the Grossman Burn Center for lifesustaining injuries.”

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