Lee Baca stepping down as Los Angeles County Sheriff

Father in law arrested in stabbing murder in Arcadia

At approximately 4:10 p.m. Saturday afternoon near Monterey Road and Pasadena Avenue a male was struck and killed by a northbound Gold Line train. While under investigation, reports seem to indicate the 57-year old was on the tracks between the arms. Service was briefly shut down between the Highland Park and Pasadena Gold Line station, and buses were used to transport passengers, Montenegro said. Service on the line was delayed for about 20 minutes.

Two Temple City condominium units destroyed by fire Monday morning Two units were destroyed, and a third sustained serious damage when flames ripped through a condominium complex Monday morning in Temple City, according to reports. The fire broke out around 1:20 a.m. inside the building located in the 9000 block of Rancho Real. Damaging a third unit, the fire was put out shortly after firefighters from LA County arrived. Officials on the scene said working that smoke alarms and a ’quickthinking resident’ saved lives in this fire. All of the residents managed to get out of the building safely and no one was injured. The Red Cross is assisting residents of the two units that were destroyed. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the people of Los Angeles County for the past 48 years – which has made this decision the most difficult of my professional life. I am not going to seek re-election to a fifth term as Sheriff, and I will retire at the end of this month.

On January 7, 2014, at approximately 8:24 a.m., officers responded to an apartment complex located in the 900 Block of Arcadia Avenue on the report of a female not breathing. On arrival officers encountered a female victim inside of an apartment suffering from multiple stab wounds. Arriving officers were directed to a possible suspect who had just left the location. Responding officers were able to locate the suspect and took him into custody without incident. Paramedics from the Arcadia Fire Department responded to the scene and transported the victim to Huntington Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced deceased by emergency room personnel. The victim was identified as Xiaolin Li, a 41-year-old female resident

BY TERRY MILLER In what can only be described as a highly emotional press conference Tuesday, Sheriff Lee Baca announced his plans to step down at the end of January. Hundreds of media representatives, colleagues and deputies plus numerous supporters of the embattled Sheriff attended

the press conference in Monterey Park. The news of Baca's decision to step down caught people by surprise inside and outside the county agency. He was in a tough re-election battle while dealing with many serious accusations of impropriety against him and at least 18 deputies under his command, particularly with

regard to the jails. Baca allegedly told top officials in county government late Monday that he believed stepping down would help the department. Baca made a brief statement Tuesday morning then followed with a brief question and answer period. “I have been proud and honored to serve the Los

Letters to the Editor

Inner Peace

By Dorothy Denne If you can start the day without caffeine, If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains, If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles, If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time, If you can take criticism and blame without resentment, If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without alcohol, If you can sleep without the aid of drugs, Then You Are Probably The Family Dog! And you thought I was going to get all spiritual..... Well, now that I got your attention with that little internet goodie, stick with me. Remember when I told you to mark your calendars to save a special date in February? Today I'm going to give you the details. George Burns To Be Alive Again And in Concert On Wednesday, February 19, 2014 at 7:00 P.M., at the Arcadia Public Library, corner of Duarte & Santa Anita. How's that for great news?!

Join Broadway and film actor Duffy Hudson as he takes you on a stroll along Nostalgia Lane. As George Burns he sings, dances and tells stories like only George Burns can. This 75 minute, one man, musical, comedy performance of the beloved George Burns is sure to delight the entire family--even the ones too young to actually remember him. This program is free to the public because it is sponsored by the Friends of the Arcadia Public Library. I have seen Hudson before in two different performances and thought he was fantastic. So, I surely hope you can make it. I'll be there to say "Hi" and goodness knows what else!

Us-Ins against You-Ins! If anyone knows why the Sierra Madre Government has the attitude that they are at war against the people that they were hired or elected to serve, then please tell everyone else so we all know. Why do they persist in trying to tell us how right they are when they know that the course they're on is the road to disaster? Can they change their ways? Do they not know that the more they charge, the less will be purchased? The simple facts are that people earn 4.4% less now than they did in 2010. Also, 77% of the new jobs in 2013 are part-time jobs and at entry level pay. A very wise statement is "Concentrate on doing the best job at what you are doing, and don't worry about the rest." If they will adopt the "I can do it myself attitude", then they will find the job more self-rewarding and the time at work will fly by. Isn't that better than delegating the work to another employee or not doing the job at all, and kicking-the

can to the road? This will also save money. Can each employee do the things that save money? For example, would it be better for the Police Department, and others, to shred their papers themselves, instead of taking them to another company for shredding? Also, is it better for the Paramedics to re-charge the portable oxygen tanks themselves, rather than farming out that item, and please don't say that they are too busy? Just these two items will save thousands of dollars per year. If each employee simply thinks about it, we feel that many, many items can be done to save money - maybe they can save enough so that they truly earn the raises that they receive. Most people know that an automobile will not run well with four flat tires or a dead battery. The same principle is true for every item, the City has ignored the necessary maintenance. It makes

one wonder, are we really short of the supply of water, or is the real story we can't pump water because the equipment is broken and doesn't work?. The directors know what needs done, but they just will not do it. Don't give us the one hundred excuses why it can't be done. Just tell us the one way that the job can be done. Adopt the attitude - "I did not know that it couldn't be done, so I did it." Focus on how to get the whole job done with monies you receive now and quit talking about increasing the charges that you already have programmed for annual cost increasing to the people. In other words, make do with what you have and quit asking for more. If you will just put those right things into action, then you will see the people to be one happy family. Wouldn't it be better for you'ins to be for usins? Try it, you may like it! Sierra Madre Watchman

Argument against measure uut Vote NO on Measure UUT -The tax increase is not necessary to maintain current revenue or service levels in the City thanks to existing revenue increases already built in. Authors of this Utility User's Tax (UUT) increase measure will tell that you more tax money is needed. This is clearly false given that the City finished the 2012 2013 fiscal year with over $ 870,000.00 in unassigned General Fund reserves. Property tax revenue (income) continues to increase. In the 6 months ending December 15, 2013, over 80 properties sold in

Sierra Madre. Conservatively, the resulting estimated increase in property tax income will be an additional $ 50,000.00 per YEAR. Property tax income will also continue to increase as more homes sell for higher prices. Income from the current (JUT Law continues to increase as utility bills continue to go up. With large water rate increases scheduled for February and July 2014, the City will collect MORE monthly income at the proposed water UUT rate of 7% than it collected at the 9% rate BEFORE the large water rate increase

went into effect. Don't be fooled! Starting in July 2015, Measure (JUT will INCREASE your base UUTto a 10% rate from the 8% rate voters approved in 2008 on all utilities (except water and sewer). That's a 25% increase! Do you expect a 25% increase in your income in 2015? Of course not. Given the large revenue increases already in effect, you can be sure the City will see increased income far beyond anything you or I will see. Vote NO on Measure UUT

Dear Editor: The saga of “Neil” the pot bellied pig has taken up quite a lot of time and I’m happy for “Neil.” I know that all pigs are very intelligent and deserve better than to be confined in a factory ‘farm’ where they never see daylight. This is an abomination, and pigs and other animals should never be subjected to these living conditions which include very crowding too! Have you ever seen

a picture of pigs being moved around and transported? Their faces are full of fear. The pigs in this country don’t live the way they did in the story “ Charlotte’s Web.” They’re mostly in factory farms which should be outlawed! Factory Farms should all be closed. Red meat causes lots of health problems. I personally know someone with kidney stones and another with gallstones.

Neither one can eat pork or red meat. I personally haven’t had red meat or pork for over 40 years and I don’t miss it at all. Also if you find out the facts about the horrors of slaughterhouses you might consider eating a more plant-based diet. At least become informed and remember cattle, pigs, sheep and poultry all feel pain and fear. S. Johnson San Gabriel

Reader says Pasadena Pit Bull targeting is discriminatory law Dear Editor: We all want safe communities for everyone-those that we love, those that we know, those that we don't know. Safety is of the utmost importance to anyone that has a genuine care for people and for animals alike. With that being said, Pasadena City Councilman Steve Madison wants to ban my dogs. He'd likely be just as happy if they were dead, and all based around the way that they look. California state law prohibits this, but the Pasadena City Council, knowing Madison's crystal clear intent for these dogs, still voted with him to craft a future breed-discriminatory law that would mandate that all dogs they deem to be Pit Bulls be spayed and neutered. Councilwoman Jacque Robinson was the only dissenting vote. This came a month after they tabled a proposal for the same law in relation to all dogs. You may think, what's wrong with spay and neuter? I'd say nothing. My own dogs are all sterilized. The problem is that this Councilman is on a crusade to vilify Pit Bulls and eliminate them from his city. He has admitted as much, and on numerous different occasions. Any breed-specific law that is put forth is done so in conjunction with the mass

demonization of whatever type of dog they are targeting. Pit Bulls take the brunt of this from around the country. The unjust stereotypes perpetuated by this action surely results in their further abandonment and mistreatment, and the sheer existence of such ideas imply that they are different from other dogs. This couldn't be further from the truth. Millions of them exist in the United States, 99.9% of which have never harmed anyone. Mandatory serialization of Pit Bulls, or of any dog, does not reduce attacks on people or pets. What does is the enforcement of actual laws (many times already existing but rarely enforced) that focus on the individual behavior of both the animal itself, and more importantly, its owner. Enforcing leash laws, the anti-chaining law, and the "dangerous dog" law would go a long way in addressing issues that could possibly manifest into something more severe. Mandating the sterilization of any dog caught running loose would also be a worthy idea. These are all concepts that are based around responsibility. Human fatalities by dog are always preceded by an utter lack thereof. Roaming dogs, chained and tethered yard dogs, and the non-supervi-

sion of children are consistently the common denominators in almost every single dog-related fatality that you can pull up from any random calendar year. These are dynamics that allow any individual dog, with whatever level of bad temperament, to act freely and without any level of supervision. To dismiss focus on this is to do a massive disservice to both your community and all of the law-abiding dog owners (of all breeds and types) in Pasadena, and further, across the country. I'd argue that from a "public safety" standpoint the covering up of that information, the ignoring of it (both the information and the reckless owners themselves), is the biggest crime of all. The desire to criminalize millions of completely innocent dogs, or groups of anything else, who have been generically and unfairly deemed to universally fit some negative connotation as a whole is fundamentally wrong on every level. People are individuals, and so are dogs. If you treat them in the opposite ways then you not only discriminate wildly but also resoundingly fail to even attempt to address the problems associated with the individual incidents or "attacks" that have jump-started these debates in the first place. Josh Liddy, SwayLove.org

Sierra Madre Councilmembers ask citizens to approve Measure UUT In a letter signed by all Sierra Madre councilmembers, the controversial UUT measure: “We respectfully ask that our citizens approve Measure I which will cap and extend the Utility Users Tax (UTJT) at its current 10% rate to preserve city services and keep Sierra Madre a full-service city with its own Police, Fire, Paramedics, and Library. If Measure UUT is not approved, the UUT will sunset to 6% by July 2016, resulting in an annual loss of approximately $1,000,000 to our $8,000,000 General Fund - nearly 13%. It is highly unlikely that property tax, sales tax, or other revenue sources will increase sufficiently to offset this loss.

Unlike property tax or sales tax, each dollar paid through the UUT stays in Sierra Madre and funds local, rather than county or state services. Sierra Madre will be faced with reductions that will degrade services, compromise maintenance of facilities, and could result in outsourcing of one or more departments such as Police, Paramedic or Library. The UUT comprises approximately 31 % of the General Fund, from which Public Safety, Library Services, Public Works and Community Services are funded. We recognize that our citizens demand the most value for their tax dollars and have successfully implemented cost-cutting initiatives since 2010 that

have saved nearly $1.3 million, keeping the IJUT below the voter-approved rate of 12%. Measure UUT is not an enhancement, it will keep the tax at its current 10% rate, while providing the means to maintain services at the present level. The choice is to continue the UUT at its current rate, or face difficult budget cuts where one or more of our major departments are outsourced, or where public safety, public works and community services are significantly curtailed. Any of these outcomes would change the nature and character of this safe, selfsustaining village. Keep Sierra Madre the special community that it is. Please vote YES on Measure UUT.

125th Rose Parade features first ever gay-marriage

Santa Anita names one-ton Clydesdale employee of the week In a racing first, Santa Anita Park has designated a popular four-footed staffer as Employee of the Week, and honered the 2,000 pound “Homestead Sally,” a Nebraska-born Clydesdale who stands a giant 17.2 hands, in a winner’s circle ceremony following Sunday’s fifth race. “Paige Rickerd, who works in Operations, found Sally on Craig’s List last summer and she has been an absolutely wonderful acquisition for us,” said Santa Anita President George Haines. “Sally works in the afternoons pulling one of our carriages for racing officials and she’s thriving in her new job. Our fans love her and so do all of us here at the track. “She’s kind, gentle and you can see that she takes great pride in her work. In addition to being seen in the afternoons, Sally is now an integral part of our free Seabiscuit Tram Tours on the weekends. Full credit goes to Paige for bringing her here and for doing such a great job in getting her acclimated to her new surroundings and job. We’re

happy to be able to acknowledge both Sally and Paige and the great work they do for us here at Santa Anita.” Santa Anita’s Employee of the Week typically receives a designated parking stall and a complimentary dinner at the nearby Derby Restaurant in Arcadia. Haines allowed that dining accommodations are proving problematic. “We’ve been in negotiations with the Derby staff and we’re having a tough time with the menu at this point,” said Haines. “We have agreed upon an outdoor option in their valet lot, but they’ve told us they’d be out of Derby Cobb Salad

for two months if Sally has her way. We’ve suggested bringing over our own hay, oats and water, but that apparently would be a violation of the Health Code, and we certainly don’t want to break any laws. At this point, it’s looking like Sally might have to settle for a home-cooked meal.” Born and raised on a farm near Lincoln, Nebraska, “Sally,” age six, arrived at Santa Anita in early August and resides in the small stable area that adjoins the Racing Office near the Kingsbury Fountain. According to Rickerd, she’s still on the lookout for a Midwestern winter—so far, none in sight!!

The 2014 Rose Parade – with millions watching it in person and around the globe – kicked off at 8 a.m. on Wednesday morning with six F-16s from the Air Force’s Thunderbirds screaming up high in unison. Thousands lined the 5.5mile parade route – which starts at the Tournament of Roses House on Orange Grove Boulevard, makes a right down the main path of Colorado Boulevard before venturing left onto Sierra Madre Boulevard and ending at Victory Park, where most of the floats will be on display to the public through the weekend. The parade-goers attended the annual event, lining the sidewalks and braving the cold evening temperatures, which got down into the 40s before heating up into a beautiful 75-degree Southern California day, complete with the San Gabriel Mountains serving as a backdrop to the event. Nearly 100 entries were in the parade, including ornately decorated and colorful floats, marching bands and equestrian troops, some having taken part in the parade for decades. This year’s grand mar-

shal is no stranger to Southern California ears, although hearing him on the First of January was quite the surprise as the honoree was longtime Los Angeles Dodger Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully. Scully was been calling baseball games for the team since 1951, which is longer than anyone in history. As the bombing tragedy of the Boston Marathon is fresh in many memories, a heavy police presence was on hand at the parade – which was in its 125th running – with more than 1,100 police officers patrolling the crowd. Bomb-sniffing dogs and a wide range of video surveillance also were used to detect suspicious behavior. Overnight, 17 people were arrested along the pa-

rade route on suspicion of various offenses including public intoxication, vandalism and battery. The parade also featured in the first of its kind of same-sex marriage during the event. A local male couple exchanged matrimonial vows while standing above a giant wedding cake on the AIDS Healthcare Foundation float. The couple met 12 years ago and owns a chain of hair salons. The event recently faced a boycott when a San Diego woman launched a Facebook page urge people not to attend the parade after learning of the couple’s plans.

Nordstrom video surveillance shows three suspects wearing dark clothing entering the store. The suspects exited an emergency exit that activated the alarm.

The Advocate, a leading Gay publication has credited the Crown City with yet another honor…the second best gay city in America. This is what they have to say in the current issue: “This beautiful but sleepy adjunct to Los Angeles, a kind of bedroom community for gays who like to garden, gets its high ranking

primarily from having two gay elected city officials for its relatively small population, and a fractional boost from California’s many statewide elected LGBTs. Nevertheless, Pasadena’s got lots to offer: two gay bars, the Boulevard (3199 E. Foothill Blvd., 626356-9304), with karaoke and pool, and Club Caution, right around the corner in

Highland Park; a number of LGBT-welcoming churches; the thriving Pasadena Lesbian Book Club (Meetup.com/ QueerBooks-67); and arguably the best flea market in the world — antiques! vintage! — monthly at the Rose Bowl.” Who is number on on the list, enquiring minds want to know….Washinton, D.C.. Who would have known?

Letters to the Editor (Cont) Sierra Madre city attorney analysis of UUT Measure UUT is submitted to the voters by the Sierra Madre City Council to extend the current rate of the City's Utility Users Tax in order to generate additional municipal revenues. Background. A utility users' tax (UUT) is a tax levied on each user of a utility (e.g. telephone, electricity, gas, water, wastewater, solid waste disposal, cable or video services) within the City's boundaries. UUT revenues are paid into the City's general fund, which is used to fund city services and programs, including public safety services. The City's Utility Users' Tax has been in force since at least 1993. In 2008, the voters approved an increase in the Utility Users' Tax to 12%, which will decrease to 10% on July 1, 2014, decrease again in 2015 (to 8%) and 2016 (to 6%), without further voter action. Since July 1, 2010, the City Council has used its discretion to decrease the Utility Users' Tax to 10%; additionally, in January 2011, the City Council further reduced the Utility Users' Tax on water and

sewer use to 9%. Accordingly, the current rate of Utility Users' Tax collected by the City is 9% for water and sewer use and 10% for all other utilities. Unless otherwise determined by the voters, both the 9% tax for water and sewer and the 10% tax for all other utilities will decrease to 8% on June 30, 2015 and then to 6% on June 30, 2016. A Citizen's Oversight Committee was formed in 2007 and has provided review and recommendation to the City Council regarding the need for the continuation of tax in order to generate additional revenue that can be used to fund general City services, including essential services, such as paramedic services. The Measure.

Many kept our tummies full during our decorating week, including Beantown, The Burger Shack, Mountain Views News, Rotary, Kiwanis, Casa del Rey, Albertsons, The Bottle Shop, Hansen’s and the many individuals who brought goodies. Thanks also go to those who took a turn at the grill including Rena & Jason Williams, Halcyon Koerber and John Harabedian. We appreciate the ongoing assistance we receive from the City includ-

ing police support, timely tree trimming on Sierra Madre Blvd. to allow the float to travel safely and much help from the Public Works Department. We are grateful for the overnight security at Kersting Court provided by 3 of the SMPD Volunteers. This year it was great to have help from several City Council members: John Harabedian, John Copoccia and Chris Koerber – your presence at our float barn meant a lot. Our float operators enjoyed extra rest with the loan of an RV on December 31st, parked in the parade formation area. Thank you Pat & Jim. A special thank you to Verizon for providing us internet access, so we could utilize our brand new online scheduling program onsite, and Alisa

Unell for spending countless hours as our program administrator and troubleshooter. To those who took the time to sign up online, thanks for your patience; we plan to do this again.

Truth is generally stranger than fiction usually and criminals are often pretty darn silly. Here’s a classic case headed for the “world’s dumbest criminals” television show. A distraught man whose ride was impounded at a DUI checkpoint around Christmas 2013 apparently was extremely determined to get his wheels back and

tried to ram a CHP cruiser. Pomona Police said the car hit several signs en route to the final resting spot.There were no injuries apparently. Gerardo Martinez, 25, was arrested on suspicion of carjacking, assault with a deadly weapon and felony evading police officers. The fines Martinez will face now will far exceed his initial DUI and impound fees.

El Monte HS volunteer arrested for sexual battery, child porn A South El Monte High School volunteer youth advisor was arrested for Sexual Battery and Possession of Child Pornography Dec 30. The investigation began Wednesday, December 4, 2013, when school officials contacted Temple Sheriff’s Station deputies. They reported that one of the suspect’s coworkers saw a pornographic image on the computer they share at the high school. The coworker immediately alerted school officials. The suspect was identified as Andres Fernandez, male/30, of South El Monte. The victim depicted in the picture was identified as a 17-year-old male whom Fernandez befriended. Special Victims Bureau

detectives discovered the pictures were taken when the victim was allowed to spend the night at the suspect’s home, where he was offered and drank alcohol. Fernandez took the pictures while the victim was asleep and unaware. A search warrant was issued, allowing detectives to search Fernandez’s residence for additional evidence. At this point, the investigation has uncovered no additional victims. The case was presented to the District Attorney on Wednesday, December 18, 2013, after which charges including Possession of Child Pornography and Sexual Battery were filed. An arrest warrant was issued and Fernandez turned himself in to authori-

However, led by the hot shooting of Dejon William and Andrew Lopez, the Mustangs took over and led at the end of the third quarter, 49-26. Arcadia coach Ben Cordeiro said while his team played well the result was exactly what they wanted. “Our effort was there,” Cordeiro said. “We played hard. I’m proud of our guys. The first half our shots were falling. The second half we needed to take better shots. They weren’t as good as they were in the first.” He added the Apach-

es gave all they had and will continue to do so all season. “Today we played hard,” he said. “We played with passion and with energy. I told our guys that’s what we bring to every game. We just got to keep moving forward. We just have to keep taking them one game at a time and work hard.” The Apaches opened the fourth quarter on a 5-0 run, but watched as the Mustangs reeled off 10 straight points to seal the game. Daren Sue led the Apaches with 10 points. He also hit a half-court shot to end the first half. Hardy pitched in eight. William scored a game-high 12 points, while teammates Harris-Austin Desmond and Daniel Harris had eight points each. Muir coach Simaine Stewart said his team is getting better every time it goes out on the court.

“We look better, but we’re a work in progress,” Stewart said. “We’re a work in progress. We had a couple of guys who transferred in. We had a couple of kids from (junior varsity) who have come up. But it’s a work in progress. Everyday we’re just trying to get a little bit better. We’re not really there yet.” He added the Mustangs are up against steady competition this season. “It’s a tough league,” he said. “Hoover is playing great this year. Pasadena, (Crescenta Valley) and Muir have been the guys the past few years. But now we’re at the bottom. Arcadia, Hoover and Burroughs, they’re the ones at the top. It’s a challenge for us this year. It’s good for everybody. It’s good for the kids.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com. Follow him via Twitter @segallanded.)

'Never on a Sunny Day' Continued from page 1

broadcast I’ve ever heard while omitting the some of the more “uncomfortable” issues dealing with the SeaWorld float and PETA’s widely promoted objection to the float due to the assertion that SeaWorld mistreats Orcas. Most of the major networks simply turned their cameras away from the gay marriage of Aubrey Loots and Danny Leclair which took place atop a float devoted to HIV awareness: For the third year in a row, AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the largest global AIDS organization, will took part in the Rose Parade. Following a United States Supreme Court ruling in June that allowed samesex marriages to resume in California, AHF’s float this year celebrated same-sex marriage and the role it can play in helping to reduce new HIV infections among gay men. As part of its ‘Love is the Best Protection’ theme, AHF’s float included what is believed to be a first: a same-sex wedding performed live during the parade. In 2013, the Rose

Parade attracted approximately 700,000 attendees, aired live nationally on eight networks to 56 million viewers, and was televised in 174 countries for an additional 28 million international viewers. However, this was left out of most TV coverage. While we understand the TOR is an old institution in Pasadena, the fact that they are becoming more progressive should inspire the conservative television stations covering the parade to follow their fine example. Fear of losing advertisers/sponsors creates out of touch producers who tell us what we ‘need to know’ and not what is happening. Some will argue that it is a “family” event and controversy should be kept out. Hogwash! The younger generation needs to know what struggle is for human beings and the ever strong battle for animal rights. We should praise those who take a stand against injustice and bigotry like we did in the 1960’s. In one video clip we saw on YouTube, one can people blasting those ar-

rested with comments like “ Orca go home…” and then applauding the LASD and Pasadena PD for arresting the protesters who are simply trying to enlighten the world about some seriously alarming practices in a certain theme park in San Diego. We should be praising the courage of PETA and the AIDs Healthcare Foundation for enlightening an otherwise extremely conservative, intolerant populous. Perhaps we must all take note of the new papal policy….as Pope Francis says “ Who Am I to judge…?”If the Catholic Church is becoming tolerant, should not those in charge of television coverage do same. The Tournament of Roses has a dictum that says “ Never on a Sunday” meaning if Jan 1 falls on a Sunday, the parade will be held on the following day so as to not interrupt local worship. This year, however, Jan. 1 wasn’t on a Sunday but fell on an extremely sunny California Wednesday. Yet, the dark cloud of censorship fell on an otherwise sunny day in Pasadena.

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___

On February 9, 1964, the Beatles appeared in the United States for the first time on The Ed Sullivan Show, captivating 60 percent of the American viewing audience. Before you could say “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!” Beatlemania had swept the country. One week later, News In Brief put it this way: “There are rumors abound that the [Beatles] are Britain’s revenge for the Boston Tea Party.” The Beatles were quickly followed by The Rolling Stones, who were perceived by the American public as a much more 'edgy', scruffy and even dangerous band. This image distinguished them from the Beatles, who were more refined, classy and even parent-friendly. The Rolling Stones appealed more to an 'outsider' demographic and popularized, for young people at least, the rhythm and blues genre. The Rolling Stones would become the biggest band other than The Beatles to come out of the British Invasion. The British Invasion was one of the watershed developments in American popular music history and is credited with inspiring the free speech movement and countless other social changes. With the 50th anniversary of the British Invasion only a few months away, this raises a question which has fueled arguments since both bands were covering Chuck Berry songs. Who's better? The Beatles or the Rolling Stones? On Saturday, February 22 at 8 pm, the Grove Theatre will host "Beatles vs. Stones - A Musical Shoot Out" with these two legendary bands engaging in an on-stage duel courtesy of renowned tribute bands Abbey Road and Jumping Jack Flash. The show consists of six alternating mini sets with both bands coming together on stage for an encore. Fans must choose between "Sir Mick Jagger" fronting the Stones through their sweaty rhythm & blues anthems, or the Beatles mining their beloved catalogue of indelible classics. Since 2011, Abbey

Road and Jumping Jack Flash have been going head-to-head throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico in casinos, clubs and performing arts centers, cranking out the hits of the Stones and the Beatles. The show is now playing a three month residency at the Harrah's Reno showroom. During the show, band members exchange tongue-in-cheek barbs about the rivalry between the bad boys of London and the lads from Liverpool. “In fact, the Beatles and the Stones were fast friends,” said Young Hutchison, who plays “Keith Richards” in the show. “But if you were a 60’s kid, you had to be one or other – not both.” The two bands have always been close. The Stones' first hit was a Beatles song called "I Wanna Be Your Man" and it was George Harrison who recommended that Decca sign the Stones after the record company passed on the Beatles. Mick Jagger inducted the Beatles into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. Abbey Road promise a 30-song, hit-packed chronological three sets, opening with "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and the Beatlemania years, to Sgt. Pepper’s

Lonely Hearts Club band, before building through the band’s “flower power” period. Jumping Jack Flash will perform three sets of crowdpleasing rock and rollers guaranteed to get even the most devoted Beatles fans on their feet dancing. The question about which band is better – Beatles or Rolling Stones – has been a spirited debate for half of a century. These two legendary bands will engage in an on-stage, throw down - a musical 'shoot out" if you will - courtesy of tribute bands Abbey Road and Jumping Jack Flash on Saturday, February 22 at 8 pm at the Grove Theatre. Tickets are $20 - $50 and may be purchased online at www.grovetheatre.com or by calling (909) 920 4343. The show is appropriate for all ages. The Grove Theatre is located at 276 E. Ninth Street in Downtown Upland. The Los Angeles Times said "the show delivers." The Long Beach Press Telegram called Abbey Road a "highly faithful tribute" and the Idaho Statesman said "if you like the Beatles, this is the ticket for you." The band headlines Knott's Berry Farm, the Canyon, Harrah's Tahoe, Harrah's Reno, Harrah's Rincon and Pala Casino.

Sierra Madre Rose Float Continued from page 1

Air Force’s Thunderbirds screaming up high in unison. Thousands lined the 5.5-mile parade route – which starts at the Tournament of Roses House on Orange Grove Boulevard, makes a right down the main path of Colorado Boulevard before venturing left onto Sierra Madre Boulevard and ending at Victory Park, where most of the floats will be on display to the public through the weekend. The parade-goers attended the annual event, lining the sidewalks and braving the cold evening temperatures, which got down into the 40s before heating up into a beautiful 75-degree Southern California day, complete with the San Gabriel Mountains serving as a backdrop to the event. Nearly 100 entries were in the parade, including ornately decorated and colorful floats, marching bands and equestrian troops, some having taken part in the parade for decades. This year’s grand marshal is no stranger to Southern California ears, although hearing him on the First of January was quite the surprise as the honoree was longtime Los Angeles Dodger Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully. Scully was been calling baseball games for the team since 1951, which is longer than anyone in history. As the bombing tragedy of the Boston Marathon is fresh in many memories, a heavy police presence was on hand at the parade – which was in its 125th running – with more than 1,100 police officers patrolling the crowd. Bomb-sniffing dogs and a wide range of video surveillance also were used to detect suspicious behavior. Overnight, 17 people were arrested along the parade route on suspicion of various offenses including public intoxication, vandalism and battery. The parade also featured in the first of its kind of same-sex marriage during the event. A local male couple exchanged matrimonial vows while standing above a giant wedding cake on the AIDS Healthcare Foundation float. The couple met 12 years ago and owns a chain of hair salons. The event recently faced a boycott when a San Diego woman

launched a Facebook page urge people not to attend the parade after learning of the couple’s plans.

Rose Bowl game sees Michigan State's first win in 26 years The Spartan defense manage to stop the Cardinal offense late in the fourth quarter as Michigan State University held on to beat Stanford University, 24-20, in the 100th playing of the Rose Bowl game on Wednesday. Michigan State’s victory in Pasadena was its first in the Arroyo Seco in 26 years. The win also came in front of a BCS-record 95,173 spectators, and more than 10 million television viewers. And with an approximately 60,000 Spartan fans in attendance, they could enjoy the 78-degree Pasadena heat, as opposed to it being just 16 degrees in East Lansing, Mich. The Spartans won in much the same way they had in their previous 12 victories: with suffocating defense. But it didn’t start out that way. Stanford marched down

By Shel Segal the field on its opening drive, blowing open holes and gashing Michigan State on a 43-yard Hogan-to-Michael Rector pass and a 16-yard Gaffney touchdown run. As the Cardinal raced to a 10-0 lead, there was cause to wonder whether cocaptain Max Bullough’s suspension had decimated the nation’s top-ranked defense. When Stanford went up 17-7 on an ugly pick-six by Connor Cook late in the second quarter, it seemed uncertain whether the up-and-down Spartans quarterback could handle the Cardinal’s vaunted pass rush. But Michigan State controlled the remainder of the game. After gaining 102 rushing yards in the first half, Stanford’s smash mouth offense managed just 60 the rest of the way, with the Spartans holding the Cardinal to just three points and six first downs in the final 30 min-

utes.

Meanwhile, Cook shredded Stanford’s defense like few opposing quarterbacks have over the past two seasons, completing 22-of-36 passes for 332 yards and two touchdowns. His first attempt at a go-ahead drive late in the third quarter ended when Cardinal linebacker Shayne Skov stripped running back Jeremy Langford at the Stanford eight-yard line. Early in the fourth quarter, Cook connected with Tony Lippett for a 25-yard touchdown strike and the Spartans went up 24-17. The Cardinal did manage a field goal to slice the score to 24-20 with 4:15 left, but their final, doomed drive began at their own 25-yardline with just 3:06 left.

LASD says prevent residential burglaries with these easy steps Temple Sheriff’s Station has experienced several residential burglaries targeting residences under renovation construction. The items stolen in the burglaries are typically lighting fixtures, appliances and the contractor’s tools. The renovation burglaries are typically occurring during the evening and early morning hours. We encourage residents planning renovations to develop security plans if they are not living in the residence during the construction. LASD also encourages residents to consider the following practices: Use Proper lighting • Proper lighting eliminates shadows that provide burglars with cover • Use adequate lighting at all points of entry • Leave lights on inside just as you would

if you were living in the house • Include the use of lighting timers and set them to an irregular pattern Secure Doors and windows • Use solid construction materials that are drillresistant • Reinforce the backs of doors with crossbars • Be sure the doorframes cannot easily be “jimmied” Alarms • Consider installing a security alarm system as part of your renovation or a temporary system during the renovation • The temporary system can easily be removed after construction Locks • Quality commercial security locks are great but are not effective if they are not properly used by the

homeowner • Unscheduled or surprise visits to your property or project will also act as a deterrent to an opportunistic thief • Update the key in the event an employee leaves or quits a job Traceable property • Third party vendors can secure your items with trackers that will assist law enforcement with its quick recovery • If your item does not have a serial number, you can engrave it with a unique number or word. • Please be sure to record serial numbers. In the event the property is recovered, the owner can be located. Fences • Ensure your fences are sturdy and secured. Patrol Checks • Call Temple Station and request patrol checks.

Brendan O’Connell and Everyartist.Me take charge in promoting the importance of art and creativity for children

-Courtesy Photo

The New Year begins like a blank canvas waiting to be transformed into a work of art, bursting with a world of invisible possibilities that will be filled in with the many colors of life. While the previous year ends mostly with reflection, January marks a special time for people to imagine and create. January is also International Creativity Month, especially noteworthy to Pasadena, home to such renowned artistic institutions and organizations as the famed Norton Simon Museum, Art Center College of Design and the Armory Center for the Arts, and long been recognized as a vibrant city that fosters, appreciates and advocates the importance of arts and culture. Along those lines comes an inspiring story about a noted artist, Brendan O’Connell, and Everyartist. me, a non-profit he cofounded which, at its core, seeks to unleash and foster the creativity innate in every child around the country. “There is a universal, yet inaccurate, perception that artists are more creative than other people,” said O’Connell, an

internationally acclaimed artist who credits learning how to draw at the age of 22 with changing the way he saw the world. Also known as “Walmart’s Warhol,” O’Connell has garnered worldwide attention for his “The Walmart Series” collection. “It’s a learnable skill. We all have out aha moments, ones where we see the world in shapes and colors. Art encourages people to think outside the box as well as to step into someone else’s. It’s liberating.” Art is also vital to a child’s healthy development. As numerous research studies and experts support, the creativity of children and giving them an outlet to express themselves is just as important as the work that is done in Reading, Writing, Science and Math. Unfortunately, budgets for arts programs across the country are experiencing deep cuts due to education policies, narrowing school curricula, and an undervaluing of the arts experience. And yet, the arts are proven to be essential for academic achievement, social engagement, and innovative thinking.

So agrees Pasadenabased California Alliance For Arts Education, which for more than four decades, has been working tirelessly to make the arts a core part of a child’s education. Most recently, Everyartist.me made history, when it organized an initiative that grew from 8,500 participants in 2012 to more than 200,000 on November 21, 2013, where children throughout the country created and displayed their own artistic interpretations of Gratitude. Becoming the largest art event to date, O’Connell and Everyartist. me are further inspired to bring this democratic art experience to millions of children nationwide on an annual basis and to provide on-going support through a digital community. A quintessential American painter, O’Connell explores the everyday through contemporary art. His work uses binary genres: traditional and contemporary, figurative and abstract, high and low art perspectives, mystical and pop. By exploring an idea through paint, O’Connell allows the concept to dictate the particular style of paintings, making his portfolio eclectic. His Walmart paintings have been collected widely and exhibited in New York, Shanghai, Toronto, Boston and reviewed in Art in America and the Boston Globe. Further information is available at www. everyartist.me or at www. brendanoconnell.com where O’Connell’s artwork is also available for purchase.

Arrest of doggie door burglars In the early afternoon on December 20, 2013, a residential burglary occurred in the 900 block of North Madison Avenue in the City of Pasadena. The suspects entered the residence by way of an insecure doggie door built into the rear door of the house. Once inside, the suspects removed numerous electronic items including televisions, computers and tablets, sports memorabilia, jewelry and the cremated remains of the victim’s parents. A surveillance camera

in the area captured the suspects leaving the vicinity. Pasadena Police immediately initiated an investigation into the crime. As a result, Pasadena Police Detectives identified several of the suspects involved in the burglary and recovered stolen electronic items. Arrested for residential burglary were Alex Canela (18 year old male), two 16 year olds males, and one 17 year old male. All four suspects reside in Pasadena. Suspect Canela is being

held in the Pasadena Jail on $50,000 bail and scheduled for arraignment tomorrow. Pasadena Police Detectives continue their investigation seeking the identification of additional suspects and the recovery of more loss.

Life Remembered Dorris C. Backus Passed away on December 25, 2013 at the age of 93. She was the dearly loved wife of Robert A. Backus who predeceased her in 2004. Dorris C. Ottjes was born in Orcutt, California on December 4, 1920. She studied at Pasadena City College where she met the love of her life, Robert Backus. She continued her education graduating as a Registered Nurse from Orange County Hospital. She

continued to work there until the war ended and she and Robert were married. While he attended UC Berkeley, she worked at the local hospital. She returned to work in the 70’s retiring in 1985. She volunteered at the arboretum in Arcadia, CA and later at the Luther Burbank Home and Gardens in Santa Rosa, CA. She loved playing bridge with her friends, reading, gardening and playing

with her kitty. She will be greatly missed by her children, John Backus and his wife Terry of Chino Hills, CA, Barbara Conter of Palmyra, PA and Julie Stout and her husband Ron of Santa Rosa, CA., her eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. We are grateful to Memorial Hospice for their kind and compassionate care. Arrangements made by Eggen & Lance, 707-545-3747.

Lee Baca steps down as L.A. County Sheriff Continued from page 1

The reasons for doing so are many, and some are most personal and private, but the prevailing one is the negative perception this upcoming campaign has brought to the exemplary service provided by the men and women of the Sheriff’s Department. They have conducted themselves with the utmost integrity and professionalism, resulting in yet another year of historic crime reductions not seen in nearly half-a-century. Your Sheriff’s Department is the greatest law enforcement agency in the nation, and I want to thank the men and women of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for their hard work, dedication, and sacrifice exhibited daily. To the people of Los Angeles County, I also extend a deep sense of gratitude for allowing me to serve for the past 48 years. As your elected Sheriff for the past 15 years, I have held fast to the Core Values of this great department. And they are: “As a leader of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, I commit myself to perform my duties with respect for the dignity of all people, integrity to do right and fight wrongs, wisdom to apply common sense and fairness in

all I do, and courage to stand against racism, sexism, antiSemitism, homophobia, and bigotry in all its forms.” Baca — who spent 48 years with the department including 15 as sheriff — was at times at the point of tears as he explained his decision, which he said he made three days ago. "I will go out on my terms," Baca, 71, said. "The reasons for doing so are so many, most personal and private." Baca insisted his decision to step down was "based on the highest of concern for the future of the Sheriff's Department." He repeatedly cited the upcoming campaign, which he said had already brought "negative perception" to the department. Baca recommended

that the L.A. County Board of Supervisors appoint Asst. Sheriff Terri McDonald to oversee the department after he leaves at the end of the month. During the press conference, Baca was asked whether his retirement was connected to the ongoing federal corruption investigation into jail violence and other problems in the department. Baca indicated it was not, saying: ""I'm not afraid of reality. I'm only afraid of people who don't tell the truth." Baca was dealing with an FBI probe and severe criticism of his leadership. After the press conference, Todd Rogers official threw his hat into the ring for Baca’s job. Also running are Paul Tanaka, Lou Vince and Bob Olmsted.

of Arcadia. The arrested suspect was identified by family members as the fatherin-law of the victim. Li Zhu, a 68-year-old male resident of Arcadia was booked at the Arcadia City Jail on a charge of murder with his

bail set at $1,000,000.00. Both the victim and suspect reside together along with other family members. This continuing investigation is being handled by Arcadia Police Department Detectives.

The motive appears to be related to an on-going dispute within the family. Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to contact the Arcadia Police Department at (626) 574-5151.

West Covina School District in hot water over religious freedom By Shel Segal Officials from the West Covina Unified School District are being asked by a religious freedom group to apologize and implement policy changes in wake of a teacher of an incident involving a first grader and a teacher, according to a published report. The first grader – 6-yearold Isaiah Martinez who attends Merced Elementary School – apparently brought candy canes to give to his teacher, Valerie Lu, and students in his class on Dec. 13, 2013, according to the report. The canes came complete with an attached message that said the cane was a symbol of Jesus Christ, according to the report. Attorneys for Advocates for Faith & Freedom, an Irvine-based nonprofit law firm, on Monday issued a letter to the district and asked for a formal apology, according to the report. After talking to school principal Gordon Pfitzer, Lu took back all of the candy,

ripped the religious-based message from the canes, threw the messages away and gave the canes back to the 6-year-old to give out to the students, according to the report. Pfitzer allegedly told Lu that “Jesus is not allowed in school.” Martinez’s sister told a local news station that all the 6-year-old wanted to do was just pass out the candy to his classmates. The family said the boy was finally allowed to do so with the notes attached, but that it had to be done off campus and on the last day of school just before everybody left for winter break. Robert Tyler, an attorney for Advocates for Faith & Freedom, said he strongly disagreed with how the district reacted and called on the prohibition of “adopting any action or from engaging in any expression that can reasonably be viewed by a religiously affiliated student as

disapproval of the student’s religion or hostile toward the student’s religion.” In addition to policy changes, Tyler also called for the West Covina Unified School District to implement training for teachers and other school officials on the First Amendment, “particularly as it relates to the rights of students to express themselves with religious viewpoints,” according to the published report. However district Superintendent Debra Kaplan said on Monday neither the teacher nor the principal acted inappropriately. “At the present time, we do not have any reason to believe that the teacher or any other district employee had any intention other than to maintain an appropriate degree of religious neutrality in the classroom and to communicate this to the child in an age-appropriate manner,” Kaplan said.

Vehicle Burglary December 2 at 7:38 a.m., a vehicle burglary was reported in the 700 block of Bonita. The victim parked her vehicle in front of her residence 5:30 p.m. When she went to her vehicle the next morning, she noticed her driver's door was open. The loss was a pair of shoes, sunglasses and CD case. The investigation is continuing. Vehicle Burglary December 2 at 7:42 a.m., a

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.

Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by TERRY F DE RIDDER AND CARRIE ERIN DE RIDDER, HUSBAND AND WIFE AS JOINT TENANTS, dated 02/04/2008 and recorded 2/8/2008, as Instrument No. 20080236318, in Book N/A, Page N/A, of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Los Angeles County, State of California, will sell on 01/23/2014 at 9:00AM, Doubletree Hotel Los Angeles-Norwalk, 13111 Sycamore Drive, Norwalk, CA 90650, Vineyard Ballroom at public auction, to the highest bidder for cash or check as described below, payable in full at time of sale, all right, title, and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust, in the property situated in said County and State and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 2333 ROCHELLE AVE, MONROVIA, CA, 910164937. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. The total amount of the unpaid balance with interest thereon of the obligation secured by the property to be sold plus reasonable estimated costs, expenses and advances at the time of the initial publication of the Notice of Sale is $590,011.35. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept cashier’s checks drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state. Said sale will be made, in an ‘’AS IS’’ condition, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession or encumbrances, to satisfy the indebtedness secured by said Deed of Trust, advances thereunder, with interest as provided, and the unpaid principal of the Note secured by said Deed of Trust with interest thereon as provided in said Note, plus fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. 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. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 1-800-281-8219 or visit this Internet Web site www.recontrustco. com, using the file number assigned to this case TS No. 11-0102981. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.
