Letters to the Editor

The doors are now locked

Send your letters to tmiller@beaconmedianews.com

When I'm not writing, I'm often reading. As I was reading this morning, there was a line that caused the "reminisce" button in my brain to click on and here I go. I'm writing. One of the characters in the book said that he leaves his door unlocked as a matter of convenience. Friends know to walk in. If the doorbell rings, it's a signal that a stranger is at the door. He makes a choice whether to answer or not. His method wasn't what struck me, it was the unlocked door. That started a stream of memories. When I was a child, we rarely locked our doors, either on the farm or after we moved into town. When we did, we used what was called a skeleton key. I think it fit every door in the county. With no air conditioning and no electric fans, really hot and humid nights made sleeping difficult. On the farm, we would often sleep on the porch. In town, those nights brought us down stairs to sleep on the floor. Mom usually hooked the screen door because there was a bar a

couple of blocks down the street. One night, before she started hooking it, an over imbiber wandered in, thinking it was his house. Nobody shot anybody. He apologized and wandered on. I remember, too, the Fuller Brush men, the vacuum sweeper salesmen, the Bible salesmen and the encyclopedia salesmen. They were always freely invited into the house to show their wares. Mom occasionally bought some cleaning supplies from the Fuller men. She never bought a vacuum because on the farm we had not had electricity so, in town, for years we continued the practice of sweeping the rugs with a broom or hand carpet sweeper at least once a week then hanging them over the clothesline twice a year and beating the devil out of them. Remember non-homogenized milk delivered to our doors in glass bottles? The cream separated to the top. In the Midwestern and Eastern winters, as the temperature dropped, the cream froze and rose, sometimes passing the top of the bottle with its

little cardboard cap perched on top. In the warm or hot weather, if no one answered his knock, the milkman simply walked in and put the milk in the icebox. The icebox was later replaced by a refrigerator, but the milkman still walked in the unlocked kitchen door. Mom would tell the Bible salesmen we didn't need a Bible. We already had the family one, which not only included the scriptures but our own family info as to who begat whom. Sometimes the strangers would be invited in anyway to have a glass of tea or whatever. They would go through mom's pages with her, all the time trying to convince her that she should start a new Bible. It never worked. One salesman hit the jackpot. He was selling an encyclopedia called The Lincoln Library. It was only one volume, but about 14 inches thick. At least it looked that thick to a seven-year-old girl. He promised Mom it would make me smart. She bought it. All I can say about that is, the doors are now locked.

Christmas Greetings! The water paying customers of Sierra Madre received their holiday greetings from the City Government in the form of outrageous water and sewer rate increases. They have introduced a four rate system by dividing the first tier. If a resident uses more than 33 cu. Ft. then they are using "excessive" amounts of water and anything over 66 cu ft. is absolutely "wasteful". They believe that they have done something by eliminating the "penalty" rate, which was never imposed in the first place. Question, "Aren't 4 rates a penalty enough for what was supposed to be based on cost?" Of course, non-residen-

tial customers have only one rate to deal with. Is that legal? The City's plan is to raise the water bills by 19% on February 1 2014, and another 18% in July 2014. The sewer rates will raise the costs by 4% and 4% on the same dates. This is only the beginning of their increases which will increase the costs to all the customers to almost double over five years, which is on top of the 7% increase of July, 2013. They say nothing about the city's "excessive" and "wasteful" spending or how they plan to maintain the water system. They do not say anything about reducing the long-term debt that they created in the first place. They also do not

recognize the millions of dollars that will come from property taxes. There is only one response to be made to these totally obnoxious cost increases. If you do not send in your protest ballot, then that is counted as an approval of their actions. The only response that each customer can do is to send in their "protest" ballot, and tell all your friends to do the same. If you don't your water bill will double. Return your "Christmas Greeting" to the City, and let them know, THANKS, BUT NO THANKS. Let's make the response an overwhelming rejection of their foolishness! Sierra Madre Watchman

Dear Editor: Re: Water, a longer view. January 20, 2014 1. No one wants their water bill to go up. On the other hand, everyone knows that the covenants we gave in connection with our water bonds are hopelessly in default and it is no surprise that our municipal credit rating stinks. We need to get our credit back. 2. No one is very happy that we had to bring water in at what appeared to be an extravagant cost. To add insult to injury, the imported water discolored the local water in some areas. a. Are there capital expenditures that could be made that would make it

possible to stretch our own Sierra Madre sources further? b. In addition to being old and precariously close to breaking, are our pipes leaking? Is there some way to detect leaks in the pipes? c. Would it be possible to capture more local water and put it into our water table? d. I understand some cities by smart metering are detecting water loss and saving customers money. Would that work here? e. What other things could we do? 3. If we cannot increase our supplies do we need to take further draconian steps ?

a. Do we need to impose new building moratoriums? b. Do we need to severely restrict outside watering? 4. I have heard informally that our rates are materially higher than elsewhere nearby a. Is this true? b. Have we looked into the possibility of partnering with some other local entity? c. Have we considered selling our system to a water company that could make the necessary capital improvements as well as lower our rates? Eric Olson Sierra Madre (o) 818 502 5600 eoesq@boldlaw.com

The 2014 Mt. Wilson Trail Race season is underway with the first of many Saturday training runs being planned. These training runs are for each and every type of runner from the absolute first time jogger to the veteran racer alike. The 2014 season will start on Saturday, February 8 at 7:00A at Kersting Court in Sierra Madre. The training will continue every Saturday morning up to the Mt. Wilson Trail Race on Saturday, May 24. For the past 11 years, Coach Eric LeClair of Team Crossfit Academy has helped prepare over a thousand runners for the rigors of this exciting and challenging trail race. Over the last five years alone, the Saturday training team has been responsible for helping to develop races with over fifty Top 3 age bracket finishes. The training is broken into two types and allows for three ability brackets to be developed. Beginning jog-

gers, intermediate runners and advanced racers have all benefitted from the program developed by Coach LeClair and his staff. The best part is that it is free and allows for runners of all types to develop new abilities while creating new friends. All runners interested in participating in this free training for the the 2014 Mt. Wilson Trail Race should arrive 15 minutes prior to the 7:00A launch and introduce themselves to the coaching staff. The staff will deliver the training for the week, discuss all the safety considerations, as well as help people decide what ability bracket they should choose. It is wise to bring fluids for hydration and appropriate trail running shoes. Moreover, wearing headphones is highly discouraged. Please feel free to contact Coach LeClair at 626-4378739 with any questions, or go to www.mountwilsontrailrace.com.

Myrtle Ave. closed at Home sellers excited about the market again; railroad crossing until May 2014 regain confidence to repurchase, survey finds Crews will be constructing grade crossing improvements on Myrtle Avenue in the City of Monrovia, as part of the 11.5 mile Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension light rail project. This work requires a full closure of Myrtle Avenue at the railroad crossing for approximately 4 months. Through May 2014, Myrtle Avenue will be closed to thru-traffic at the railroad crossing just north of Duarte Road (24 hours per day, 7 days per week). Duarte Rd (eastbound and westbound) will remain

open to thru-traffic. Detour routes will be in place during the closure and signage will be posted to direct motorists and truck drivers. Pedestrian access thru the closure will be provided on one side of the street. Detour signs will be posted to direct pedestrians and bicycles during closures and a crossing guard will be available to assist pedestrians. New traffic signals will be installed at the intersection of Myrtle Avenue and Pomona Avenue. During this work, lane closures will

be implemented; however, local access will remain open at the intersection of Myrtle and Pomona. Once completed, this intersection will become a 4-way signalized intersection. Motorists are advised to expect delays and use alternate routes when possible. All businesses situated in and around the impacted area are OPEN during construction. We encourage you to support these businesses and shop local. For more information, visit www.foothillextension. org.

Home sellers are more optimistic about repurchasing a home than in the past few years, thanks to strong growth in home prices, record-low interest rates, and better personal financial situations, reports the Arcadia Association Of Realtors®. The “2013 California Home Sellers Survey”, as conducted by the California Association of Realtors® says more than twothirds (69 percent) of home sellers purchased a home after selling their previous residence, up from nearly half (47 percent) in 2012, and from only 12 percent in 2011. “Much-improved housing market conditions in the last year have given sellers more confidence to own a home rather than to rent one,” said 2014 AAR President Mike Vachani. “With sellers being more positive about the future of home prices, the vast majority of sellers who are currently renting plan to buy again in the future. In fact, 70 percent of sellers who are currently renting said they would purchase another home, up from 22 percent in 2012.” Nearly half of sellers (43 percent) believe that home prices will rise in one year, compared to just 9 percent in 2012, and nearly three of five sellers (58 percent) believe home prices

will increase in five years, up from 12 percent in 2012. Additional findings from C.A.R.’s 2013 California Home Sellers Survey include: • The reasons for selling changed significantly in just one year. In 2012, the majority of sellers sold primarily because of financial difficulties, but as home prices surged, a desire to trade up became the top reason for selling in 2013. Others wanted to take advantage of low interest rates to finance their next home, and some sellers believed the price of their home had peaked and wanted to cash out. • Heightened market competition in the first half of 2013 led to an increase of multiple offers, nearly all home sellers (98 percent) said they received multiple offers, up from 83 percent in 2012. On average, each home sale received 5.9 offers in 2013 compared to 3.1 offers in 2012. • Fierce market conditions also led to bidding wars, with nearly half (45 percent) of all sellers receiving offers higher than the asking price. In fact, more than one-third (37 percent) received three or more offers above asking price. Sellers, on average, received 2.2 offers above asking price. • The Internet continued to be the most common resource for sellers to find

an agent, with 51 percent of sellers finding their agent online. One-fourth of sellers used the agent with whom they had previously worked, up significantly from just 3 percent in 2012. • Website listings were an integral part of the selling process, with more than two-thirds of sellers finding Realtor.com as the most important website in the selling process. • Social media is playing a larger role in the home-selling process. Nearly three-fourths (74 percent) of sellers incorporated social media into the selling process, up from only one-fourth (24 percent) in 2010. Sellers used social media sites such as Facebook (83 percent); Twitter (52 percent); YouTube (39 percent); LinkedIn (24 percent); and Yelp (19 percent) to learn more about their agents or to communicate with them. The 2013 C.A.R. Home Seller survey was conducted by telephone to 600 people statewide to measure their perceptions of the home selling process. Eligible respondents all closed escrow on their homes within the six months prior to August/ September 2013.

Hundreds turn out to help Leukemia patient By SHEL SEGAL Just because it might be like looking for a needle in a hay stack doesn’t mean you stop. The Pasadena Public Health Department and several other organizations held a bone marrow drive in front of the department’s headquarters on Fair Oaks Avenue for a local 2-year-old girl who has leukemia on Thursday with the hopes of finding a genetic match. Dr. Eric Walsh, director of public health for the department, said while the odds of finding a donor were low, the drive was also helping to solve another objective. “It is close to being a needle in a hay stack, so the more people who get swabbed, the better the chances for this young lady,” Walsh said. As approximately 100 people were anticipated to come by and register for the bone marrow registry, Walsh said more minorities – namely Asian Americans, African Americans and Latinos – are needed to become bone marrow donors. “We need to get more minority communities in the bone marrow registries for the people who might need it,” he said. In fact Madhuri Mihmistry, community relations manager for Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches, said the number of minorities who are registered are just too low. “To diversify the data base we need to increase the number of minorities,” Mihmistry said. “Right now 70 percent (of people on the registry) are Caucasian. Around 28 percent are all minorities. We need to get

Arcadia Meals on Wheels celebrates 40 Years For over 40 years the Arcadia Meals on Wheels program has been responding to the needs of its residents with loyal, dedicated volunteers delivering healthy, nutritious food. But they're more than just a delivery service; they also bring peace of mind to families and clients knowing that almost every day someone will be in contact with the recipient, often establishing lasting friendships.

The program delivers meals Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) including a hot meal that features an entree and vegetable, and a lighter meal that includes a sandwich, fruit, beverage, and dessert. The two meals contain 1200 calories combined, and supply two thirds of the federal recommended nutritional daily allowance. Service costs a nominal daily fee of $5.50. Low sugar and salt diets can be accom-

modated upon request. Many senior citizens find that Meals on Wheels can mean the difference between independent living and convalescent care. The service can be used for as little as two weeks or for as long as necessary. To contact Arcadia Meals on Wheels, call (626) 447-2193. Located in the Red Cross Building, Meals on Arcadia Wheels is sponsored by the YWCA San Gabriel Valley.

those numbers up to find matches.” She added the number of people looking for donors at this moment is pretty overwhelming. “At any given time there are over 6,000 people looking for marrow donors,” she said. “For a patient 30 percent of the time they’ll find matches from within the family. Seventy percent they have to look for an unrelated donor.” In addition, Mihmistry said finding a match for the 2-year-old girl at the bone marrow drive was starting to get into a critical stage. “This is urgent be-

cause although she’s undergoing a transplant right now from her father, the best option is an unrelated donor for her because there’s no match in the family,” she said. And what’s the procedure for taking from you? It’s pretty easy and painless, said Statice Wilmore, a spokesperson for the department. “It’s just a cheek swab, and from that information we’ll be able to determine if you are a donor match,” Wilmore said.

Caring for Others Service-Learning at The Gooden School

-Courtesy Photo

Service-Learning, a teaching and learning strategy at The Gooden School, involves hands-on student involvement with vital causes throughout the year at every grade level. Many such opportunities were highlighted on Service-Learning Theme Day on Tuesday, January 14. Student involvement in meaningful local and global causes was demonstrated at four interactive stations on the campus. “Caring for others is not only part of the fabric of student life at Gooden, it is woven into the curriculum as Service-Learning, and is fully embraced by each student,” said Patty Patano, Head of School at Gooden, an independent Episcopal school, kindergarten through 8th grade in Sierra Madre. “It’s rewarding to see how young students develop into compassionate and generous individuals, in part through personal service-learning experiences that stay with them.” Service-Learning projects featured in the event

included: Homelessness: “How many of you had dinner last night? How many of you slept in a bed last night?” asked Donna Byrns, Director of Friends in Deed, which provides a food pantry and runs the Pasadena Bad Weather Shelter. All hands went up, as she then explained there were many in the Pasadena area who don’t have food to eat or a place to sleep. “We’re excited about the warm scarves you’re making for homeless individuals right in this area. Your tag will let them know you care,” said Byrns as she accepted 120 fleece scarves and personalized gift tags made by students for homeless individuals the Pasadena Bad Weather Shelter, where homeless individuals in the Pasadena area can find a warm, dry place to sleep on the coldest days. Messages by students included: “This is for you. Stay warm.” ~ Lars, 5th grade, with a drawing of the sun and sky. “Stay warm and be

loved!” ~ Julia, 3rd grade. “Stay warm. We care about you.” ~ Oliver, 5th grade, who surrounded his message with colorful hearts. “Everything that is bad turns good. Have hope.” ~ Atta, 7th grade. “We are extremely grateful to the Pasadena Playhouse, which provided the funds to purchase enough warm fleece fabric to make 120 scarves for those seeking warmth on the coldest nights,” said Marianne Ryan, Director of Admissions at Gooden. The funds were raised by a special performance of “Aladdin” at the Pasadena Playhouse in December, with a percentage of the ticket sales benefitting Gooden. Haitian Arts and Culture: Students learned about Haitian culture, art and music, and pack donated recorders for Gooden’s sister school, St. Jean Baptiste, in Jeanjan, Haiti. While listening to lively Haiitian music students created artwork inspired by Haitian art. “The music made me

want to dance,” said Lucky, a 6th grader as he depicted a bird surrounded by fanciful swirls of color. “In Haiti, it’s bad luck if your hat falls off,” wrote Theo, 4th grade. Break time featured a traditional Haitian snack of red beans and rice, with lemonade (Riz et Pois, Limonade). Water Conservation: James Carlson from the City of Sierra Madre engaged the students with a Powerpoint presentation on water conservation conveying how to use water wisely, and why every drop counts. When presented with the fact that the East Coast has too much rainwater, resulting in flooding, while our area is experiencing a drought, one young student asked, “Why isn’t there a pipeline to bring the surplus water to the West?” Carlson replied, “That would be one big pipeline!” Students jotted down many ways to save water indoors and out including taking shorter showers, checking for leaks, and sweeping driveways instead of hosing them down. As Carlson concluded, “If we do our part, we

can each save 1,850 to 2,250 gallons of water per month.” Student response? “Wow.” Endangered Animals: Students watched a video on endangered animals, discussed what they can do to help save them, then created and decorated masks representing their favorite animals. Tigers and pandas were popular. Students noted ways they can help endangered animals. “Don’t hunt. Don’t throw trash in the ocean. Don’t litter.” wrote Kaitlin, a third-grader. Another student piped up, “Help spread the word!” The focus on saving animals came from the Pasadena Humane Society, the ServiceLearning focus for kindergarteners at Gooden. Only a selection of Service-Learning projects were featured at today’s event. Another community project was highlighted in mid-December, when fifth-grade students from Gooden brought holiday cheer to the elderly at Monte Vista Grove senior community in Pasadena, with handmade wreaths, and holiday music, and personal

greetings. “Beyond the lovely Christmas music, it's about bringing cheer by shaking hands with each senior, looking into their eyes, sharing a few words, and being genuine in our love,” said their teacher Jeni Cregan, as the students happily did just that wearing Santa hats, and big smiles. Throughout the year, the fifth graders will return to Monte Vista Grove for a variety of Service-Learning experiences bridging the gap between young and old, resulting in smiles all around. Founded in 1975, The Gooden School is an independent Episcopal School, K-8, where academics and the arts come together. Reflecting Gooden’s high academic standards, and reputation for the arts and service-learning, graduates are accepted by many of the finest high schools in the area including Campbell Hall, Flintridge Prep, La Salle, Loyola, Mayfield, St. Francis and Westridge. For more information about The Gooden School, visit www. goodenschool.org.

Housing predictions for 2014 By Rudy Lira Kusuma, REALTOR® Making predictions in what is still a somewhat volatile housing market can be tricky. That being said, I am going to give you what I believe will be the three biggest headlines for housing in 2014. Home Sales Will Surge Many housing pundits are calling for home sales to do slightly better in 2014 than they did in 2013. To the contrary, I strongly believe that home sales will skyrocket with increases of

10-15% in 2014. Supply Will Struggle to Keep Up with Demand With a dramatic increase in demand, it will be up to real estate professionals and builders to make sure there is the necessary inventory to satisfy this demand. This will be a challenge for much of the year. Interest Rates Will Increase Significantly Most experts are calling for an increase in mortgage interest rates in 2014. However, I believe the in-

crease will be more dramatic than is being projected. I believe rates will be closer to 6% than 5% by year's end. About the author: Rudy L. Kusuma is a licensed real estate broker CA BRE# 01820322.

Homeland Security advisor asks citizens to take a stand against human trafficking As January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month, California's Homeland Security Advisor and Director of the Governor's Office of Emergency Services, Mark Ghilarducci, released the following statement Tuesday: It is estimated that more than 20 million people around the world are victims of human trafficking. Approximately 800,000 victims annually are trafficked across international borders worldwide. Between 14,500 and 17,500 of those victims are trafficked into the United States, according to the U.S. Department of State. Subjection to the injustices of human trafficking, such as forced labor, debt bondage, involuntary servitude and sexual exploitation shatters families, lives and our communities, here and abroad. It is a heinous crime that involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to recruit, harbor, transport, provide or obtain a person for the purposes of sexual or labor exploitation. Victims of human trafficking are, more often than not, women

and young children, but also include teenagers and men. California Attorney General Kamala Harris notes human trafficking is the world's fastest growing criminal enterprise and is an estimated $32 billion-a-year global industry. California, a populous border state with a significant immigrant population and the world's ninth largest economy, is one of the nation's top destination states for trafficking human beings. My office has and will continue to commit itself to the fight against human trafficking and, in doing so, support our nine human trafficking task forces throughout the state (in Anaheim, Fresno, Los Angeles, Oakland, Riverside, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco and San Jose), who rescue countless victims and the prosecution of the many perpetrators of this crime. Cal OES has committed more than $5 million to fighting human trafficking through our task forces. Efforts of the task forces include coordination of information and resource shar-

ing among state and federal law enforcement agencies and victim service providers; development of training for law enforcement personnel, victim service providers, and the public to identify and assist victims of human trafficking; development of protocols and resource manuals for responding to cases involving human trafficking; the identification and rescue of human trafficking victims; and the investigation, arrest and prosecution of human trafficking cases. Additionally, in California, the State Threat Assessment Centers and our numerous partners are working closely with law enforcement and non-governmental organizations to end modern-day slavery. I applaud their efforts and encourage you to stand against human trafficking. If you believe someone to be a victim, please call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center at 1-888-373-7888 or text BeFree (23733). It only takes a second to make a major, positive impact on a person's life.

Domestic cat killed during Pasadena fire Monday

-Courtesy of PFD

One cat was killed, a dog was treated by firefighters for smoke inhalation and five apt. units were damaged when fire erupted at a residential apt.complex on Pasadena Avenue. Lisa Derderian, spokeswoman for the Pasadena Fire Department, said the cause of the fire is under investigation. The second-alarm fire at 617 S. Pasadena Ave. was reported to the fire department at 11 a.m. Some residents said they heard a loud bang

before the fire started and saw smoke coming from one unit as flames shot from the roof. Pasadena, South Pasadena, Glendale and San Marino Fire Department units responded to the house fire .On arrival Engine 31 reported heavy fire visible from the second floor of the apartments. Units initiated Fire Attack, Primary Search, and Ventilation. Additional units completed Secondary Search and secured Utilities.

The fire affected five units, displacing four families. One person was treated on-scene but was not transported to the hospital. One female requested assistance with housing from Red Cross. Fire Investigation determined the fire to be electrical in nature. One dog was successfully resuscitated, one cat succumbed to the fire and two additional cats survived. All of the pets were housed and assisted by Pasadena Humane Society.

23, of Irwindale; and Steven Robert Aguirre, 21, who police say is a transient from Los Angeles -- were cold and tossed paper into an illegal campfire when a gust of wind "just blew embers all over the place." These three men who started the 1,952-acre Colby Fire also allegedly smoked

marijuana as the brush fire flared, according to a federal complaint filed on Tuesday in Los Angeles. Each suspect was charged with one federal count each of unlawfully setting a fire. A federal complaint alleges they were camping, smoking pot and watching

videos on a laptop when their campfire got out of control. The suspects, who are still in custody, were expected to appear in federal court on Wednesday and could face a sentence of five years in federal prison if convicted, according to United States Attorney’s office.

Assistant Principal at Alhambra High resigns

was in Riverside and only 12 years of age.. The victim videotaped a call to her alleged abuser and posted it on You Tube last week – The response has been explicably significant. The video has received more than 75,000 views since it was posted on YouTube Friday. It has also led to an Alhambra High School administrator's resignation and launched a full investigation. The obviously distressed woman said: "I recently found out where a former teacher of mine has been working," the young woman says in the YouTube video, "and before I was thinking of reporting her for the abuse that she had done to me, since I was 12 years old." The woman in the video then calls her alleged female abuser who was an assistant principal at Alhambra High. She clearly asks to speak to one Andrea Cardosa. "Do you realize that you brainwashed me and you manipulated me and that what you did was wrong?" the woman asks her alleged female abuser. "Yes, and I regret it," the alleged female abuser replies. “I regret it every day,” she says later "You sicken me, and every day when I think about what you did, you sicken me," the victim says. "You should be so ashamed and so disgusted with yourself." Carrillo said she came forward because she has a daughter who is turning 12. She said she wanted to help prevent molestation and sexual abuse from happening to more children.. Carrillo has three children,

two girls and a boy. The teacher who allegedly abused the young woman is Andrea Cordosa. Cardosa could not be reached for comment. The telephone numbers we located had been disconnected. Cardosa resigned after being interviewed by the district over the video, but currently faces no charges. She has not been identified by police or the Alhambra Unified School District. Meanwhile, another alleged victim surfaced: The second alleged victim says she recognized the former teacher’s voice in the You Tube video. “There was no doubt, that was her,” the woman said. “I saw myself in Jamie. I saw myself as if I was talking to her.” “Our stories are exactly, extremely, extremely alike. And I never realized that as a child but, now that I’m older and a little more mature, everything changed and I see what was going on,” the second alleged victim said according to a CBS news report on Tuesday eveing.

The second woman said she wanted to talk to her attorney before she detailed the accusations of abuse. The Riverside Police Department reports they only have one official allegation against the teacher. "The Alhambra High School administration contacted the Alhambra Police Department immediately upon discovering the link. The matter was handed over to the Alhambra Police Department who immediately began their investigation," the school district said. Alhambra police have now passed this investigation on to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

The Pasadena High boys’ basketball team exploded in the third quarter, outscoring visiting Arcadia High by 12 points and went on to win, 7652, on Tuesday in a CIF Southern Section Pacific League game. Pasadena was led by Ajon Efferson’s gamehigh 25 points and Tyrek Adams, who finished with 21. The Bulldogs trailed the Apaches, 25-24, with 4:48 left in the second quarter before going on a 13-4 run to finish out the half and take control of the game heading into the third quarter. Pasadena coach Tony Brooks said he felt his team played well after the break. “I thought our defense stepped it up a little better in the second half,” Brooks said. “We were able to extend. Teams will come in here and they will give you their best shot. If we’re not ready to play we’re

going to be in for a game. But I thought our team stepped up the second half defensively.” Brooks added he has been telling his team to consider every game an important one and not to get ahead of themselves. “We played Muir on Friday and high school kids have a tendency to look ahead,” he said. “I’ve been trying for the last three days to tell them that this is a big game and they’ve been looking at me out of the corner of their eyes. At the same time Arcadia is a very formidable team. As a coach I’m scared to death. But we were able to put some things together and finish it off. So, I was pleased with that.” Arcadia coach Ben Cordeiro said his team let the game get away after having a second quarter lead. “We did have our chances,” Cordeiro said.

“We played pretty well in the first half, just got to continue to play well a full game, not just a half.” Cordeiro said Arcadia started to get outmatched by the Bulldogs in the third quarter. “We just got to stay on practicing hard and executing on offense,” he said. “I thought the second half we got away from executing on offense. The pressure didn’t allow us to execute.” He also said the Apaches need to play better offense if it is going to win games. “I think we hit some shots,” he said. “We got some confidence. When we were hitting shots we were playing with a little more confidence and that brought us more success.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com.

Oakland Ave., Pasadena. The League of Women Voters Pasadena is sponsoring the event, which is free and open to the public. Real-life stories – one from a family in Pasadena transitioning from homelessness -- will illustrate what the cuts mean to local families and children, who number in the hundreds. The reductions affect 1.1 million people in Los An-

geles County, 47 million nationally. The food stamp reduction was meant to coincide with a better economic outlook, yet many Americans remain stuck in poverty and the ranks will increase because of cut unemployment insurance. It also means that California food stamp recipients will be spending $46 million less per month at local grocery stores. Gil Nelson, director of Family Services at Union Station Homeless Services, who sees struggling families every day, will talk about how people surmount the difficulties and what kind of help is – and isn’t – available.

Socorro Naranjo Rocha, coordinator of Families in Transition – a homeless/transitional program in the Pasadena Unified School District – will describe what the cuts really mean to local families and children. Free parking is available behind the Women’s City Club off Madison Avenue. Although there is no charge for the program, reservations are requested to assure adequate seating. Reservations are required for the lunch, which is $25, including tax and tip. The deadline is Friday, Jan. 31. The number to call for further information and reservations is 626-798-0965.

calling all Californians to conserve water in every way possible.” State water officials say that California’s river and reservoirs are below their record lows. Manual and electronic readings record the snowpack’s statewide water content at about 20 percent of normal average for this time of year. The Governor’s

drought State of Emergency follows a series of actions the administration has taken to ensure that California is prepared for record dry conditions. In May 2013, Governor Brown issued an Executive Order to direct state water officials to expedite the review and processing of voluntary transfers of water and water rights. In December,

the Governor formed a Drought Task Force to review expected water allocations, California’s preparedness for water scarcity and whether conditions merit a drought declaration. Earlier this week, the Governor toured the Central Valley and spoke with growers and others impacted by California’s record dry conditions.

How green is my valley? By Shel Segal In an attempt to improve that city’s environment, the San Gabriel City Council is looking into whether it should adopt a plan to make the municipality more green. And if you ask Mark Gallatin, city planner for the city of San Gabriel, it is something that should be done. Gallatin said the changes would make development “more sustainable.” “It’s ‘Greening the Code,’ which are a series of amendments to our development code,” he said. “The whole concept is to make some changes to our code to make our development regulations more sustainable, more environmently friendly, have more sustainable practices in building.” And while there are no tax incentives, there are other cost benefits associated with the proposed changes, Gallatin said. “It’s good for the environment and some of these things can be good for the pocket book, as well, in terms of saving energy, and thereby saving money for homeowners and developers,” he said. There are other pluses,

too, he said. “There are some things that are incentivized, though, in the amendments,” Gallatin said. “For example, when you build apartments or condominiums you have to provide a certain amount of common open space as a recreation area. If you are willing to donate land offsite or if you’re willing to develop a trail along one of our washes here, then the amendments would give you a reduction in the amount of onsite open space that you’re required to have.” Gallatin said the movement in San Gabriel to go green be beneficial, especially since it has rained much around here for a while. “For example, the new code amendments would set the standards that would make it easier to install solar panels on commercial buildings and homes,” he said. “Another example would be landscaping. The new requirements encourage low water-use plants and droughttolerant plants, so you’re conserving water. That’s particularly important these days since we’re in the midst of a

drought.” He added using droughttolerant plants is easier than you think. “If you went with a native landscape or plants that are indigenous to Southern California, you’re doing droughttolerant landscaping,” he said. “Drought-tolerant landscaping doesn’t mean everything has to be cactus. There are a lot of native grasses and trees that are indigenous to Southern California.” In addition, Gallatin said the city of San Gabriel has been in the process of going green for some time. “I’d like to think we’re one of the leaders in this area,” Gallatin said. “Pasadena’s been on-board with the green program for quite a while. But here in San Gabriel, we adopted a specific plan for our Valley Boulevard neighborhood back in 2006 that was based on sustainable principles. We adopted another document called ‘San Gabriel Goes Green’ back in 2009, which kind of laid out the rules the city is going to follow when we do projects that are more sustainable.”

One of whom is the famous hockey player Luke Robitaille who is a grandson by marriage. He spends his days and nights studying the bible and analyzing the text therein. His office is littered with research books, manuscripts and papers studying the word of the Bible. His first poem was published in 1937 and his work has since appeared in numerous publications in cluding The Salt Lake Tribune, Desert News as well as his own publishing house. His life’s work has been a journey thanks in no small part to his mother and her strong religious beliefs. Teaching Franklin an early

lesson in life. his parents were Mormons . When he was about 5 years old and after attending a service at the Mormon Church, Franklin told his mother he didn’t like it at all. To his surprise, she accepted his young but learned decision not to return to that church and taught him about prayer at home. Franklin Dale Murdock, was born December 15th 1920 in Salt Lake City, UtahMurdock is the fourth of five boys and one girl and graduate of West High School with the class of 1939.

Mr. Murdock is the author of 4 books: My Life in Poetry and Murdock doesn’t throw his religious beliefs on any one unless they ask questions. His philosophy is simple, “remember to spend time with your loved ones and tell them everyday how much you love them.” He continues…”they won’t be around forever” Give a warm hug to the one next to you, he tells me ” because it is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a penny.” Franklin Murdock’s, The Best is Yet to Come., will be out in a couple of weeks.

Arcadia Unified Superintendent and Board President testify at Historic State Board of Education meeting in Sacramento Arcadia Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Joel Shawn and AUSD Board of Education President Cung Nguyen traveled to the State Capitol to advocate for Arcadia students on Thursday. The two were among hundreds, including Gov. Brown, from all over California who testified and shared their thoughts and concerns about the new Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) before the State Board of Education ultimate-

ly approved regulations for the new funding model. “It was important for us to make the trip and express our thoughts on behalf of the district and our community,” said Dr. Shawn. “We needed to let the State Board know that any further restrictions on the LCFF could hurt us as a district and what we want to accomplish for our students. Knowing the mutual trust between our community and the district, it was important that the regulations allow this

new funding to truly give as much local control as possible.” “The LCFF provides additional money to districts with higher amounts of lowincome students, English learners, and foster children,” explained Dr. Shawn. “We aren’t a district that will yield a windfall of new funds like other districts will, so we need the local control to budget accordingly with the best interests for all our students. “

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.

USC Pacific Asia Museum presents the new exhibition The Other Side: Chinese and Mexican Immigration to America in the Changing Exhibition Galleries from February 7 through July 20, 2014. Through a collection from five contemporary artists of visual narratives about the Chinese and Mexican immigrant experiences, the exhibition explores the recurring issues of immigration, border relations and labor practices that have persisted throughout U.S. history and remain timely. The selection of works employs a mash-up of dif-

ferent styles and references, spanning historic periods, geographic locations, cultural influences and gender perspectives, bound together by the common threads of memory, history, identity and humanity. The artists featured are Andrea Bowers, Margarita Cabrera, Tony de los Reyes, Zhi Lin and Hung Liu. Andrea Bowers' No Olvidado (Not Forgotten), a fence monument comprised of 50" x 120" graphite on paper drawings, acts as a memorial honoring those who have died crossing the Mexico - U.S. border. Margarita

Cabrera's construction of desert plant sculptures from discarded Border Patrol uniforms further navigates the socio-economic layers of migrant workers and the gender association concerning sewing and mass production. In his Border Theory series, Tony de los Reyes approaches the U.S. - Mexico border as a site of abstraction and explores the layered structures and formations of political, cultural, economic and aesthetic identity. In his continuing exploration of the harsh reality and racism faced by Chinese immigrant railroad workers, Zhi

Lin's new large-scale abstract paintings record the physical and emotional hardships of their journey. Hung Liu's portraits of Polly Bemis and China Mary draw attention to the female experience in late 1880s. Her Jiu Jin Shan (Old Gold Mountain) installation made of more than 100,000 fortune cookies over a railroad track pays tribute to the Chinese migrant workers who lost their lives building the railroad. The political messages and the confluence of art and social change are beautifully articulated through these thoughtfully researched and meticulously constructed paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations. By presenting these emotionally poignant and conceptually engaging works, the exhibit hopes to offer viewers a humanized perspective to the complex immigration issues often overshadowed by mass media and politics. This exhibition was conceived by Nancy Tom and is guest-curated by Chip Tom with support provided by Columbia College Chicago and the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.

Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the dece-dent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal

representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the Califor-nia Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowl-edgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court.

The undersigned mortgagee, beneficiary or authorized agent for the mortgagee or beneficiary pursuant to California Civil Code Section 2923.5(b) declares that the mortgagee, beneficiary or the mortgagee’s or beneficiary’s authorized agent has either contacted the borrower or tried with due diligence to contact the borrower as required by California Civil Code 2923.5. 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.

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.

Pasadena General Plan meeting - Feb. 1 The public is invited to a community meeting in February to review draft policies as part of the General Plan update that will help guide the City’s future. The meeting will be held at 9:00 a.m., Saturday, February 1, 2014 at Pasadena City College’s Creveling Lounge (Building CC), 1570 East Colorado Boulevard. Parking is $2 and is available in lots 3 and 4 along South Hill Avenue. The General Plan, a blueprint that guides the City’s future, includes both a land use map and a list of policies. While the map will set the type of uses allowed and the intensity of growth, the policies describe the outcome of the growth. The policies answer important questions like, “What should new buildings look like?” and “How can we protect neighborhoods?” and “How can we improve the City’s economy?” The draft policies cover topics such as growth, transportation, design, historic preservation, environmental sustainability, arts and culture, economic vitality, parking, and education. The policies also give direction to future

planning efforts for districts in the City such as the Central District, East Colorado, East Pasadena, North Lake, Fair Oaks and Orange Grove, Lincoln Avenue, Washington and Allen, West Gateway, and the Northwest. The General Plan also includes optional chapters – such as the Social Development, Scenic Highways, Public Facilities, Historic/ Cultural, and Cultural Recreational Elements – that will be folded into the Land Use and Mobility Elements. In February and March, the City’s commissions will consider the community’s comments, review the draft policies, and provide comments. A final draft, taking into consideration the comments of the Commissions and community, will be prepared in the summer of 2014. For more information on the General Plan Update Policy Meeting, visit www.cityofpasadena. net/generalplan, call (626) 744-6710, or email generalplan@cityofpasadena.net.

regards to its dealings with the association. “The city has always maintained that everything it did was lawful, reasonable and fiscally responsible,” he said. “The fact that this resolution has now occurred is evidence our position has always been correct.” Grossberg added it is time for everyone to move on. “I am glad and the city is glad this is finally over because there are more important things to deal with,” he said. Legal action was originally taken against the city by the association in March 2012. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled

in August 2012 to effectively dismiss all individuals from the lawsuit filed by the association against the city. The court, however, denied a motion by the city to completely dismiss the case, which was resolved almost two years after it was filed. The suit also ran into trouble last September when the police union’s law firm – Lackie, Dammeier, McGill & Ethir – filed for dissolutionment. That happening caused the association to put the suit on a backburner while it searched for a new law firm to represent it. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com).
