A witness calling 911 reported that the dogs were dragging the cyclist down the street. When officers responded. the cyclist was up on a car. The pits charged the officers and were shot with a shotgun. Coincidentally, 36 hours ago my colleagues on the City Council rejected my proposed ordinance that would have called for mandatory spay and neuter of pit bulls. Not a ban, mind you, or even a limit on the number one can own, just spay and neuter to control the overpopulation of this breed. One of my colPlease see page 11

The 24 page book, designed by Jeff Lapides of First Water Design hopes to educate and enlighten area residents of the marvels that await them in their own foothills. Glen Owens, who along with the Historical Society, personally funded the 5000 copy project to educate the public about the preserved land he says is becoming increasing rare, especially in Los Angeles County, as developers buy up every inch of land. The history of the Monrovia Hillside Wilderness Preserve spans over three decades Please see page 27

Dorothy's Place A few thoughts

By Dorothy Denne A friend recently shared with me a piece he received on the internet. He said it made him think of me. I can see why. The author and I think a bit alike. I'll mix my words with that author's words and share a few thoughts with you. I bet a lot of you will agree. What does it matter if I choose to read until 4:00a.m. then sleep until noon? Then have ham and eggs for dinner instead of for breakfast. Or, what does it matter if I dance with myself

to those wonderful tunes of the '40s and '50s. Or better yet, pick up one of my cats and dance with a partner. I am sometimes forgetful, but some of life is just as well forgotten. Eventually I remember the important things. Sure, over the years, my heart has been broken. How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one, or when you see a child suffer, or a beloved pet's time is up? But broken hearts are what give us strength, and understanding, and compassion. A heart never broken is pristine and sterile, and will never know the joy of being imperfect. I am so blessed to have lived long enough to have

my hair turning white, and to have years of laughter etched into deep grooves on my face. So many have never laughed, and so many have died before their hair could turn. As I get older, it is easier to be at ease. I care less about what other people think. I don't question myself as much anymore. I've earned the right to be wrong. So, I kind of like being old. It has set me free. I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever but, while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been nor what will be. AND, I shall eat dessert every single day (if I feel like it)

Letters to the Editor Reader asks us all to help feed homeless Dear Editor: We think of the homeless as living in downtown Los Angeles but there is a homeless and hungry man in El Monte who rummages through the trash to find food in a parking lot behind Rite Aid near the El Monte Mall. My daughter, who has neutered home-

less cats and feeds them every night, gives this poor man food whenever she sees him but does not see him every night. There is no rescue mission in the El Monte area and I think the closest is Pasadena. Can’t each of us do something to help these

poor people? At a fast food restaurant in Rosemead we recently bought lunch for a middle aged woman just standing there. We knew she had no money and was grateful for the meal but didn’t want to ask for help. S Johnson San Gabriel

Feeling good! The Sierra Madre Government has to be feeling good about the fact that they went through the Prop 218 exercise and as a 'result the people of the City are faced with a 50 percent increase in their water bills by the end of 2014. This unfortunately is only the beginning and the other 50% will be added by the end of 2018. To quote one Councilmember, "If we are going to do anything, then let's hit them hard." The City Manager and Public Works Director must also be feeling good since they do not pay a water bill in this City. The Council also felt so good that they complimented and applauded the Consultant for his fine work. It didn't matter that his conclusions were based upon "funny" numbers that Led to the rate increases. The Consultant must also feel good that he was able to put these increases on the people of Sierra Madre just like he did for the people of South Pasadena. These actions have to make the government feel good, even though the people will be suffering as a result. One can only conclude that city's hunger for more and more money is never ending. The people keep hoping that increased income to

the City will go to increasing and maintaining the water supply. Since the City has made these promises before, and did nothing, there is no reason to expect that proper maintenance will take place now. Oh, let us not forget they felt so good about the increases that they lowered the utility tax from 9% to 8% on our water bills. They also changed the' starting date to March 1, 2014. They once again succeeded in fooling the people into thinking that the increased cost was in order to buy imported water but the truth is that the only thing they plan to do is to increase the reserves. Of course, they promised that the last time and that didn't happen either. The only hope the people have is that the City will live up to their promises this time. Let's look at the brighter side. The water from our two tunnels in being diverted to our settling basins, as is the small amount being diverted from the wash. Of course, if the water coming down the wash is too great, then the water will overflow our small dam and flow to the ocean. Hopefully, the diversion dam below the Santa Anita Dam will be finished soon, since it was to be finished in

Jerry Mascott Mascott Insurance Services 2012. Maybe the people will receive credit for the reduction of the City's charge for the electricity used to power the pumps, since the five pumps are shut down while we use water from the SGMWD which is delivered by the SGMWD pipeline. Do we really incur extra costs for this water since we have 7,000 acre/feet of credits with the SGWD? Next, the people need to look forward to the Utility User Tax increases that are going to be voted on this coming April. Hopefully, the people will be just as wise as before and defeat this increase as they did the last time. Now maybe the discussion of selling the Water Department will end. Howard Wagner did not secure the water supply for the City, so that the government would sell these rights later. The City Council terms that are expiring with the April election will vacate three present Council seats. These three feel so good about what they accomplished that they are not running for re-election. All of these events will allow the people to "feel good" or is it the opposite. Time will tell.

Huckabee fan in Monrovia takes exception to article Dear Editor: My first question when I saw this article in the latest issue of Monrovia Weekly was, who wrote the article? It's obvious that whoever wrote it, did not want her name to be known. Yes, I know it has to be a woman. My answer to this anonymous article is that Reverend Huckabee did not insult "women" since I was not insulted. Reverend Huckabee was only expressing an opinion as a pastor, against abortion. Quoting the Democratic National Committee chair and not quoting someone in the opposition is simply bias. Well, I happen to be a woman who happens to be a Libertarian and believe that I have the right to do whatever I want with my body. However, it's true that government intervention in this issues (sic) is intrusive, especially when the government is telling me how to manage my libido or my reproductive system, ei-

ther one way or the other. Reverend Huckabee is only following his religious beliefs to which he is entitle (sic) to under the Constitution. This anonymos (sic) criticism is unacceptable, period. Nayade M. de Cumbe Monrovia Editor’s Note: Firstly, a man wrote the article in response to what is extremely offensive, archaic Republican rhetoric. Recently, the party of legitimate rape, transvaginal probes and the idea that taking government-subsidized birth control “makes her a slut, right?” came up with two more winners. Tim Roland of Herald Mail perhaps summed it up best: “First came New Mexico Rep. Steve Pearce, who, in a new book, patiently explained that “the wife is to voluntarily submit” to the husband. Then the Rev. Mike

GREAT RATES!

Huckabee stepped up to the plate, acting as if he thought he was some sort of faith healer for women’s tortured souls. Hang in there princess, you’re gonna make it after all (spins three times in the snow and tosses hat into air, a la Mary Tyler Moore).The problem is that when you try to assign a dictionary’s worth of unpleasant catchphrases to an opponent that never uses such language, the catchphrases stick to you, not the other guy.“Uncle Sugar” thinks that women are “helpless” and “cannot control their libido” or, basically, stay unpregnant without government assistance. Zing. Pow. Except no Democrat has ever said anything of the kind. And this gets to the heart of the matter, because, in my view, political party has nothing to do with it. It’s not that they are Republicans; it’s that they’re guys.” Well said!~

Congratulate me Emmy. I’m finally retiring this year! I have been planning for this, however I’d like to hear your financial advice for this exciting milestone? Ah, retirement. It’s like graduation day for adults. Goodbye Tension - Hello Pension! If you haven’t already, take the time to envision what you’d like your retirement to look like. Encourage yourself to day dream, as many of your current habits and attitudes will inevitably change. For example, you may throw that pesky alarm clock right out the window. One significant financial difference could be that instead of saving and accumulating assets; you’ll find yourself withdrawing and spending them down. Examine your income sources during retirement and compare them to how much

money you’ll realistically need to meet your lifestyle expectations. It’s vital to accurately estimate how long your retirement nest egg might last. For most people, personal savings and investments will make up the bulk of their retirement resources. Various financial assets may need to be viewed differently. IRAs, employer plans and annuities, to name a few, each have different distribution rules and tax consequences. It’s important that you understand them well before deciding on a distribution plan. It’s best to identify which funds to spend first. A well thought out distribution plan must compare approaches and take into account their advantages and disadvantages. This will also help to determine when to start drawing on your Social Security and potentially increase the longevity of your assets. You might also consider reviewing your investment strategy. Before, your strategies were likely based on a long-term outlook. You might have been better able to absorb market fluctuations knowing that retirement was on a more distant horizon. Now, risk is probably less tolerable. Many people entering retirement reallocate their assets for greater stability, as opposed to growth potential.

Often, retirees find themselves in a lower tax bracket after they’ve stopped working. A welldeveloped tax perspective can impact your choices when planning for your retirement income distribution. Investing in tax exempt securities may lose some of their advantages when you’re no longer in a higher tax bracket. I always advise folks to prepare for the unexpected. This means to attempt to factor in future health care costs. For many, paying for medical expenses is a significant concern. It is essential that you recognize ahead of time any gaps you might have in your healthcare coverage, and devise a few options for filling in those grey areas. This is a bare-bones overview of what soon-tobe retirees will need to consider. If you’re interested in digging deeper into this topic, please join me for a retirement income workshop I’m hosting on Saturday, February 22nd at the Joslyn Center in Alhambra. This free community event begins at 10 am. Please call (626) 943-8833 to reserve your seats.

Santa Anita Avenue, Arcadia CA 91007. For more information please call 626821-1781. Egan will work with the Arcadia Stage in a session that will act as both rehearsal for the concert and a master class on Tuesday, February 11, at the Arcadia Performing Arts Center, which is home to both the Arcadia Performing Arts Foundation presentations and the Arcadia Stage Company, and which was built complete with rehearsal space and production facilities. Teaching has become a large part of Egan’s agenda in the past few years, having given master classes at universities and conservatories across the country, including UCLA, USC, Pepperdine, University of Miami, Pacific Conservatory of Performing Arts,

CSU Fullerton, Circle In the Square Acting Program and more than a dozen others. Arcadia Stage members will perform with Egan “Seasons of Love” from Rent, “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from Hairspray, and “I Won’t Say I’m in Love,” which Egan introduced in the Disney film Hercules. One of the stand-out members of the program, senior Alana DeBlase, will perform the duet “For Good” from the musical Wicked at the concert. DeBlase has already appeared in Annie, The Drowsy Chaperone, and will be featured in the upcoming Curtains. The Arcadia Stage Company will also preview Curtains (March 20-22) by singing two numbers from the show -- “Show People” and “Wide Open Spaces.”

Governor issues statement on state water project allocations Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. last week issued the following statement after the Department of Water Resources (DWR) announced that State Water Project allocation is being dropped to zero: “Today’s action is a stark reminder that California’s drought is real. We’re taking every possible step to prepare the state for the continuing dry conditions we face.” When Governor Brown declared a drought State of Emergency earlier this month, he directed state officials to take all necessary actions to prepare for water shortages. Last week, CAL FIRE announced it hired 125 additional fire-

fighters to help address the increased fire threat due to drought conditions, the California Department of Public Health identified and offered assistance to communities at risk of severe drinking water shortages and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife restricted fishing on some waterways due to low water flows worsened by the drought. Also last week, the California Natural Resources Agency, the California Environmental Protection Agency and the California Department of Food and Agriculture also released the California Water Action Plan, which will guide state efforts to enhance water supply reliability, restore damaged

and destroyed ecosystems and improve the resilience of our infrastructure. Governor Brown has called on all Californians to voluntarily reduce their water usage by 20 percent and the Save Our Water campaign has announced four new public service announcements that encourage residents to conserve. Last December, the Governor formed a Drought Task Force to review expected water allocations and California’s preparedness for water scarcity. 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.

Les Sauvages Americains presents ” The Violin-Viola Duet in Revolutionary France” at the Sierra Madre Playhouse - Feb. 16 Les Sauvages Americains are one of the most exciting young ensembles in the Los Angeles area, presenting comprehensive, experiential programming in which the music is interrelated in an historical context. True to their name, the Savages are given keenly to interpretations, which tend towards the wild side of the spectrum. The ensemble endeavors to approach the repertoire as a rock band might do, with each mem-

ber bringing his or her own interpretive flair to the performance which is, subsequently, integrated into cohesive whole. The result is a thrilling dynamism: a real sense of empfindsamkeit. Make no mistake, this Music with the seat belts off!! The programme: Jean-Baptiste Boulougne “Le Chevalier de Saint George (1745-1799): Sonata for Violin duct in A Majeur, Op.3. Antonio Lorenziti

The Social Whirl Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts kicks off their 50th with Grand Empty House Party It was an enchanted evening when over 500 guests attended the Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts (PSHA) annual Empty House Part, January 24th. This event is the official announcement for PSHA’s annual benefit. It is also an opportunity for local dignitaries, patrons, and the media to see the 50th Showcase House before it is transformed by a cadre of outstanding designers into the exquisite showplace the public has come to know and love for the last 49 years. This year’s House will be featured, along with the 49 past Showcase Houses in a commemorative book, 50 Years of Pasadena Showcase Design Houses: Supporting the Arts Through Design. The 2014 Showcase House is a magnificent 1915 English country estate built in the Arts and Crafts style, designed by noted architect Stiles O. Clements, who also designed El Captain Theatre in Hollywood and the Mayan Theater in downtown Los Angeles. The estate features seven bedrooms, including a nursery, a nanny’s room and a traveler’s suite, ten baths, five fireplaces, a media room, oak floors, redwood wall paneling, and floor to ceiling leaded glass windows. The 3.5 acre wooded grounds feature a lily pond river-rock spring house, a variety of lovely gardens, a pool and dressing rooms, a tennis court, a greenhouse, a gardener’s potting shed and an outdoor kitchen. In addition there is a chauffeur’s suite complete with sitting area and kitchenette located above the carriage house. Current President Don-

na Gotch remarked, “I am honored to serve PSHA as its President as we celebrate 65 years of volunteerism and the 50th Anniversary of our annual benefit. As guests journeyed through the mansion, they were able to experience the House in its “before” stage, and were treated to live music by a jazz quartet, and delicious culinary offerings from The Kitchen for Exploring Foods. The menu was English-inspired with foods such as Anne Bolyn Lemon Tarts, English Sticky Toffee Pudding, Stilton Cheese Terrine, English Braised Beef, and a very special 50th Anniversary ice sculpture, making for a tasty and tasteful evening. Vicki McCluggage and Charlotte Varner were C0Chairs for the event. “We wanted to make it festive for the 50th and people are really noticing the extra touches, like the ice sculpture and the live music,” said McCluggage. “We are so happy to have some of our traditional designers return for the 50th anniversary. Designers such as John Cole (salon), Michael Berman (dining room), Cynthia Bennett (kitchen), and Kathryne Dahlman (the great room) are also loyal supporters of Showcase.” Varner reflected, “the Empty House party is a perfect kickoff to generate excitement about our project. The fact that it is the 50th Annual Showcase House is a tremendous accomplishment and we are excited to welcome all our guests. I was fortunate to have chaired the 40th Showcase House, and as I said then, and repeat now, every visitor to Showcase is contributing to the arts when they buy a

The Shakespeare Club has been involved with Friends of Foster Children almost since its inception in 1976. Friends of Foster Children (FOFC) are a non-profit organization composed entirely of volunteers who share a deep concern for children. They have no paid staff. These children are those who must live apart from their families due to neglect, abandonment, illness or family dysfunction. FOFC also assist newly emancipated foster teens as they learn to set up their own homes, continue their education, and struggle to be self-supporting. Steve Wittmer, Friends of Foster Children Sugar Plum, told us that over 450 local foster children who live in residential treatment centers had their Christmas wishes hung on the Sugar Plum Trees at Westfield Santa Anita in Arcadia again this past year. Gifts are purchased for those children whose tags were not picked or were never returned to insure that every child received a gift. Gifts and donations of wrapping paper were forwarded to the following children’s centers:

Bienvenidos Foster Care Services, Ettie Lee Youth and Family Services, Hathaway-Sycamores Child & Family Services, Helen Evans Home, Hillsides, Hope Houser for the Multiple-Handicapped, LeRoy Haynes Center for Children & Family Services, Rosemary Children’s Services, Trinity Youth Services-El Monte. The needs of Emancipated foster youth from FKCE-Independent Living Programs, Transitional Independent Living Program, and Youth Moving On were also included. The Philanthropy Department of the Club headed by Chairman Monica Forgey collected donations equaling $3649.00 from Club Members and friends then went shopping with FOFC staff members with long lists in hand. The items purchased during the TOYS R US shopping day were distributed based on the wishes of the children at the group homes and the needs of the facilities. The shopping lists were made based on those wishes. Additional cash donations were also given to FOFC.

Holden introduces bill to stop oil rustlers Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) has introduced AB 1566 to combat the growing incidences of kitchen grease theft by giving law enforcement the tools they need to stop these modern-day oil rustlers. “Many people may be surprised to learn that kitchen grease is an important source of biodiesel to fuel cars and trucks, and that its value has skyrocketed in recent years,” explained Assemblymember Holden. “It use to be restaurants had to pay someone to take it away.

Now it’s like the Wild West out there, everybody’s fighting over it and we need to get a better handle on regulations.” Existing law already requires licensed renderers to record and keep paperwork for two years. But, enforcement has been spotty and there are many illegal transporters cruising alleyways at night. AB 1566 would increase the penalties for noncompliance and help sort out the legitimate companies from the thieves. According to the California Department of Food

and Agriculture, a typical fast-food restaurant produces 150-250 pounds of grease a week and a fully loaded pumper truck could bring in as much as $900 at a recycling center. “There are significant environmental benefits to turning kitchen grease into practical commodities that can be used in animal feed, cosmetics, soaps and by the biofuel industry,” concluded Assemblymember Holden. “It’s not going to solve the energy crisis, but it will put a dent in our dependence on foreign oil.”

Methodist Hospital's new CT scanner suite now serving patients Methodist Hospital, in its ongoing efforts to provide patient care in a safe environment, on Thursday dedicated its new state-ofthe-art H. N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation & John Stauffer Charitable Trust CT Imaging Suite. The Aquilion One features advanced dose-reduction and image-processing software, ensuring an “image safely” environment, according to American College of Radiology guidelines for preventing unwarranted radiation exposure. The world’s most powerful X-ray imaging system, the Aquilion One provides high-resolution images quickly and with the lowest possible dose of radiation. This 320-slice CT scanner can produce 4D images of the body’s organs in less than a heartbeat – right here at Methodist Hospital, and physicians and staff are excited about the possibilities. “Our acquisition of this system reflects Methodist Hospital’s long-standing commitment to improving patient safety,” President and CEO Dan Ausman said. Special guests at the ceremony included Chris McGuire, vice president, programs, and director of the H.N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation, and

Tim Gosney and Michael Whalen, trustees of the John Stauffer Charitable Trust. State Sen. Ed Hernandez, OD, of District 49, presented a certificate of commendation to the hospital. Also presenting certificates were representatives from the offices of U.S. Congresswoman Judy Chu, Assemblyman Ed Chau and Supervisor Michael Antonovich. Arcadia City Council Member Robert Harbicht and Arcadia Chamber of Commerce President Arlynn Robinson also presented certificates to the hospital in recognition of its commitment to the community. The new technology delivers the best image quality available while using the absolutely lowest possible, safest dose of radiation. This provides for ideal patient care, including state-of-the-

art imaging and the dynamic volume CT scanner, able to acquire 16 cm of anatomy in a single rotation. This ability to acquire an entire organ, such as the heart or brain, with one volume scan opens the door to a whole new world of diagnostic possibilities. Featuring the fastest acute stroke work-up – 4.5 minutes – far ahead of the community standard of 18-20 minutes, the system also features the innovative Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction (AIDR) technology and can capture both anatomical and functional data at the same time. This system allows the correct patient protocol to be selected, based on the patient’s age, weight and exam type. The dose is displayed on the console before scanning so the operator can confirm and validate.

State water project allocations dropped to zero Gov. asks Calif. residents to reduce water consumption by 20 percent

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. issued the following statement after the Department of Water Resources (DWR) announced that State Water Project allocation is being dropped to zero: “Today’s action is a stark reminder that California’s drought is real. We’re taking every possible step to prepare the state for the continuing dry conditions we face.” When Governor Brown declared a drought State of Emergency earlier this month, he directed state officials to take all necessary actions to prepare for water shortages. This week, CAL FIRE announced it hired 125 additional firefighters to

help address the increased fire threat due to drought conditions, the California Department of Public Health identified and offered assistance to communities at risk of severe drinking water shortages and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife restricted fishing on some waterways due to low water flows worsened by the drought. Also this week, the California Natural Resources Agency, the California Environmental Protection Agency and the California Department of Food and Agriculture also released the California Water Action Plan, which will guide state efforts to enhance water supply reliability, restore damaged

and destroyed ecosystems and improve the resilience of our infrastructure. Governor Brown has called on all Californians to voluntarily reduce their water usage by 20 percent and the Save Our Water campaign has announced four new public service announcements that encourage residents to conserve. Last December, the Governor formed a Drought Task Force to review expected water allocations and California’s preparedness for water scarcity. 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.

With the topic of health care on the minds of millions of Americans around the country, CASA 0101 Theater, 2102 East First Street (at St. Louis Street), Boyle Heights will kick off the new year through February 23, 2014 with a world premiere play written by award-winning playwright and screenwriter, Josefina López entitled A Cat Named Mercy, a dark comedy about Catalina Rodriguez, a Latina Licensed Vocational Nurse working at Elysian Estates Nursing Home who gets her hours cut, becomes uninsured and is in desperate need of an emergency operation. With the help of a cat she names Mercy, she is divinely guided to do the unthinkable to save her life. Under the direction of Hector Rodriguez (of South Pasadena), actress Alex Ximenez (of East Los Angeles) stars as Catalina Rodriguez, leading a cast of 14 actors playing 33 roles. The ensemble cast includes:

Blanca Araceli (of Cypress Park) as Mama Rodriguez/ Spirit of Mama Rodriguez; Michael Cota (of Culver City) as 911 Dispatcher/ Cameraman; Rebecca Davis* (of Glassell Park) as Doctor DuBois/Health Insurance Agent/Manager/ Surgeon/Prison Inmate; Susan Davis* (of Sherman Oaks) as Kitty Randolph/ Spirit of Kitty Randolph; Alex Denney (of East Hollywood) as Brad Randolph/ Spirit of Mr. Randolph (Kitty’s Husband); Maricela Guardado (of Inland Empire) as Spirit of Marga Rodriguez/Spirit of Mrs. Smith (Harold’s Wife)/TV Reporter; Henry Madrid (of Belmont Shores) as Harold Smith/Spirit of Harold Smith/Spirit of Papa Encarnación; Carmelita Maldonado (of Boyle Heights) as Belinda Ortiz (Social Worker)/Prison Guard; Maria G.

Director Hector Rodriguez said: “A Cat Named Mercy” is a dark comedy

about health care. I hope to illustrate how, in our country, our health depends on having insurance and the dire consequences of not having health insurance. I also plan to personalize the struggle people confront when trying to care for a loved one suffering from a serious illness who doesn’t have health insurance. My goal is to use comedy to present such a serious and profound issue that will affect everyone in an entertaining way.”

Wilderness Preserve opens at Ridgeside Continued from page 1

Francis Delach, Interim City Manager for Monrovia sent Monrovia Weekly this response to our questions regarding these properties. “The City of Monrovia is and has been working to open public access to the Hillside Wilderness Preserve. The City's Resource Management Plan specified public access points and was adopted after an extensive public hearing process. As part of the steps necessary to facilitate public access, the City has completed a survey process and is finalizing the boundaries of some access points. At the proposed Cloverleaf access point, adjacent property owners have contested the public's right to use an existing trail for access. The City has always intended to formalize the public access easement at this point and MAY be required to acquire an easement through eminent domain to share a narrow strip of property currently used only as a driveway. If an acquisition is required, the City will pay just compensation to the property owners, as established by an appraisal, in accordance with California law. The adjacent property owners have been aware of this access plan for some time. In an effort at transparency

and cooperation with the adjacent property owners, the City's appraiser has recently provided legally required notice to the affected property owners so that they can provide input to the appraiser. A public hearing would be held before the City Council decides whether to acquire the property. Monrovians are rightly eager to gain full access to the wilderness preserve property they taxed themselves to purchase. The City is working to provide that access in the near future, consistent with decisions that have long since been made, in a manner that balances the public's right of access with the concerns of adjacent property owners.” As of this publication the only access to the trails and the Wilderness Preserve is at Ridgeside. The access points at Alta Vista are in question presently due to easement issues and the Highland access is restricted as a result of flood maintenance operations post fire last year. Monrovia property owner Tom Seuss has initiated a campaign advising property owners of the city’s intentions: “The City of Monrovia’s incessant craving and

-Photo by Terry Miller

threats is overstepping the boundaries and merit of Eminent Domain Law. There is neither a need, nor a reason for the City of Monrovia to threaten Eminent Domain. As Citizens and neighbors to the Delores Reid Family and the Tyler Baze Family, we should not stand submissively and watch this irresponsible use of Government Power. We love Monrovia! And we respect our City Staff, Mayor, and Council Members. But sometimes they need guidance, And they need to hear from us!” – Tom Seuss “…the City of Monrovia hired Consultants several years ago. The Consultants

held I believe 2 to 4workshops with the Community. During these workshops the Consultants determined the subject Cloverleaf access point was not a good location for a Public Trail Head/ Access Point into the Hillside Wilderness Preserve due to Private Property issues and the overall setting at and prior to the subject area. The City appeared to ignore these paid Consultants, and we never saw the original Consultants again. Eventually the City continued with the consulting firm, but I was told (by consultant)that the City pretty much directed them with what the City wanted to hear and see, ” Seuss added.

Last year in the US 31 people were killed by dog attacks. 49/o of those attacks would equate to I out of 31. 27 out of the 31 fatal attacks were by pit bulls.

Including two-year old Samuel Zuledio, six-year old Nephi Sedu, and 91-year-old Elsie Grace. 27% of all dogs euthanized by the Pasadena Humane Society are pit bulls, almost three times the number of any other breed. in 2012 alone, 182 unwanted pit bulls were put down by the Humane Society. If you read about this breed as I have, you will learn that they have been bred over many generations to be fighting dogs, and to kill their opponent. Their massive jaws. are extremely powerful, and when they bite they lock onto their victim and shake back and forth violently until the victim (be it another animal or a person) succumbs. Although they do not appear to bite any more frequently

than some other breeds, when they do bite, because of these factors much more severe injuries or even death results. Ilegal dog fighting almost always involves pit bulls, for these reasons. Pit bull lovers (and there are a number of them and they are passionate about their dogs) argue that they don't bite any more frequently than other dogs. That's beside the point because we are talking here about the gravity of the harm, the severity of the attacks.. They argue that if properly cared for pit bulls are loving, peaceful pets. Well, three of the five fatal attacks in California last year (two-year-old Samuel, six¬year-old Nephi and 91-year-old Elsie) last year were by the victims family1s pets. But even if true, that many pit bulls behave peacefully does not change the fact that year-in year-out the overwhelming number of the most severe attacks are committed by this breed, notwithstanding its relatively small population. An ER physician who came to one of our meetings told us that every ER physician in America knows how dangerous pit bulls are because they see the horrific injuries they inflict.

Bulldogs slam dunk Hoover High By SHEL SEGAL The Pasadena High boys’ basketball team survived a second half comeback by visiting Hoover High on Friday night and won, 6359, in a CIF Southern Section Pacific League game. The Bulldogs led by 19 points, 44-25, with six minutes left in the third quarter and look like they were cruising to the win. However, behind the hot shooting of Kevin Nazari the Tornadoes cut the lead to two points, 61-59, with just a bit more than a minute to play in the game. But solid free throw shooting by Pasadena would

seal the win. Pasadena coach Tony Brooks had good things to say about Hoover. “Hoover’s a good team,” Brooks said. “They keep fighting. We had them down by 19. You got to give credit to them. They never gave up. So, it’s a good test for us.” Brooks added his team needed a game like this to bring it back down to earth. “We need games like this because we need to be humbled some time,” he said. “When you’re on a winning streak, sometimes you

think you’re never going to lose. This is an indicator that anyone can beat you on any given night.” He also said he was glad with the way the game finished. I was happy with the way we pulled it out. We made some plays to pull it out, but still we’ve got a world of improvement to do. Hoover coach Jack Van Patten said he really thought his team had a chance to pull it out. “We didn’t play very well in the first half, obviously,” Van Patten said. “In the

second half, the zone helped us a little bit. It’s one of those things. We get a couple of breaks here and there, we win the game.” He added picking up the loss is difficult to stomach. “It’s tough because I thought we played a pretty good second half,” he said. “We were pretty resilient. (Pasadena) could have blown us out of the water. But the kids stuck with it. It’s just a tough one to lose.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

The Fine Arts Club of Pasadena kicks off second century supporting the arts in Pasadena Since 1913, The Fine Arts Club of Pasadena has supported the arts and artists of our community by sponsoring exhibitions, performances, and scholarships. On Monday, Beacon Media was invited to CalTech’s world famous Athenaeum for a showing of Greg Ross’ abstract and other subjects in oil paintings. Also attending the dinner was Ms. Hiroko Masuda who performed the Koto, a Japanese stringed instrument that resembles a harp after the dinner meeting. AS a historical footnote: Eleanor Miller held a meeting of sixty musicians and artists at her Pasadena residence in 1913 for the purpose of forming a league of one hundred professionals in the Fine Arts. The members were encouraged to support the Arts. Representatives of the arts of painting, sculpture, and literature were later incorporated into the group, together with honorary members Charles Wakefield Cadman, Mrs. Carrie

Artist Gregg Ross was featured at the February 3 dinner meeting. After mastering representational painting through direct observation in an impressionistic style, Ross continued into Landscapes and still life. -Photos by Terry Miller

Jacobs Bond and Gilmore Brown. During the post-war years, President J. Maria Pierce and a few dedicated members began to improve and modernize all aspects of the Club. In addition, as chair of the Cultural Affairs Committee of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce,

she used her influence with the Opera Guild and the Pasadena Symphony Association to successfully initiate and coordinate the first three Pasadena Festivals for the Arts. The Club is dedicated to promoting the enjoyment of the arts and to granting awards to talented

young artists. There have been 138 winners in various categories of the Arts, since the awards were first granted in 1962. The Fine Arts Club of Pasadena is a founding member of the Pasadena Arts Council. At least twenty of the Club’s active, honorary and young award

winners have received Gold Crown Awards from the Pasadena Arts Council. On June 5, 1983, The Fine Arts Club itself was given a Gold Crown Award “…in recognition of continuous contributions of the Arts.” On October 4, 2013, The Fine Arts Club of Pasadena celebrated its Cen-

tennial anniversary at the Athenaeum at Caltech. The organization is actively seeking new members and inviting the community to learm more about the organization. Go to their informative website at: www. fineartsclubofpasadena.org for more information.

Rep. Chu responds to Republican principles for immigration reform On January 30th, Congresswoman Judy Chu (DCA) released the following statement about the draft Republican principles for immigration reform: “I am encouraged that Republican leadership is stepping up to the plate with the release of their immigration priorities. However, I am concerned that it lacks a pathway to citizenship and pits families against employers in a struggle for a place in our society.

“The Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus released its priorities twelve months ago. We recognized that immigration reform must prioritize the unity and sanctity of families and provide a roadmap to citizenship for aspiring citizens. I remain optimistic that goodfaith negotiation can lead to comprehensive immigration reform this year. I urge my Republican colleagues to join us at the table and bring forth legislation to get the real de-

bate started.” The release of Republican priorities comes more than a year after the Democratic Party, along with other Congressional caucuses, released their respective priorities Congresswoman Chu is a long-time advocate for comprehensive immigration reform. In October of 2013, she was one of five original co-sponsors of H.R. 15, the compromise immigration reform bill introduced in the House.

About 50 members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals protested outside of the Pasadena Courthouse on Monday to show support for the 16 people arrested on Jan. 1 for blocking SeaWorld’s float in the Rose Parade. As the protestors held signs that read “SeaWorld: Cruel Orca Prison,” Lisa Lange, PETA senior vice president and lifelong Pasadena resident who was among the protestors arrested, said going to jail is worth it if it will bring some protection to these animals. “SeaWorld is a monument to animal suffering, and cruelty to animals isn’t something to celebrate at a parade,” Lange said. “Spending a few hours in jail is no fun, but it’s nothing compared to serving a life sentence in SeaWorld’s orca prisons.” Katie Arth, a campaigns manager for PETA, said there are multiple purposes for the protest. “We’re here to show support for some brave protestors who stopped the SeaWorld float during the Rose Parade,” Arth said. “These people went above and beyond because they know what happens to orcas and other animals at SeaWorld. Calves are torn from their mothers, (the mothers) are left crying for days wondering what happened to their babies. And they’ve been shipped off to another park to boost profits.” Arth said the

confinement these orcas face is just brutal. “Orcas at SeaWorld would naturally swim up to 100 miles a day,” she said. “But they’re living in what is considered the human equivalent of a bath tub. They have 1 percent of the space they would pass through every day.” She added the living conditions aren’t much better. “These animals are forced to live in barren, concrete pits and live in chemically treated waters all while boosting SeaWorld’s profits,” she said.

Andrea Cardosa arrested

! N E OP

Continued from page 1

Penal Code section 269 (a) (5), aggravated sexual assault on a child under the age of 14; five counts of Penal Code section 288 (a), lewd acts on a child under the age of 14; and six counts of Penal Code section 288 (c) (1), lewd acts on a child 14 or 15 years of age while the defendant is at least 10 years older than the victim. All the counts pertain to except for one of the PC 288 (c) (1) counts which involves Jane Doe 2 in this case. The five aggravated sexual assault on a child counts carry potential life sentences should Cardosa be convicted. A Riverside County Superior Court judge had issued a $5 million warrant for her arrest Monday and by Monday afternoon Cardosa was arrested in Perris. The case involving Cardosa came to light in January after Jamie Carrillo, who is now an adult, found out that Cardosa was a school administrator at Alhambra High School in Los Angeles County and called Cardosa. That call was both video and audio taped and the victim posted the taped conversation on YouTube. Riverside police detectives then began an investigation into the allegations that Cardosa had illegal sexual contact with Carillo while the victim was a student at a middle school in the city of Riverside and continued while she was in high school. The charged crimes involving Carrillo

Within days of the posting of the video on YouTube, an 18-year old named only as Brianna came forward to report that she also had been victimized by Cardosa when she was a student at a high school in Perris in 2009 or 2010. The case, RIF1400310, is being prosecuted by Supervising Deputy District Attorney John Henry of the DA’s Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Unit. Cardosa was charged with molesting two girls, who are now grown adults, when they attended middle schools in Riverside and Perris. She is charged with 15 felonies, including lewd acts with a child, related to one victim from 1997 to 2001 when she was a student at Chemawa Middle School in Riverside and when she was in high school. The felonies Cardosa is charged with include five counts of aggravated sexual assault on a child, which can carry up to a life sentence, if she’s convicted.

New townhomes unveiled in Old Town Monrovia Ivy is Monrovia’s newest townhome neighborhood that is ‘designed for discriminating home shoppers who seek a new lifestyle in the heart of the city’ according to the developer, Williams Homes. “Southern Californian’s who appreciate city living will embrace these low maintenance homes,” says Daniel Faina, director of sales and marketing for Williams Homes. “Ivy offers an ideal environment for buyers looking to live a vibrant, in-town lifestyle in the proximity of great schools, shopping and entertainment.” Faina’s words ring true because just steps away, residents will find casual and fine dining, art studios and galleries, entertainment and theatres, antique shops, jewelry and apparel, and most every imaginable city convenience. Situated in the hub of Monrovia’s Old Town, Ivy offers residents the convenience and freedom of attached architecture, coupled with the benefit of modern floorplans and efficient interior spaces. Three smartly appointed, three-story floor-

plans offer 1,956 to 1,989 approximate square feet, with three and four bedrooms, three and one-half bathrooms, and two-car attached garages. Home designs feature functional home offices and enjoyable sunny decks. A limited opportunity of 18 homes, pricing at Ivy starts from the $500,000s. Williams Homes has fulfilled the City’s “art in public places” ordinance by incorporating the new community’s leafy logo in artistic metal-work that will wrap the low-lying, exterior patio walls facing Ivy Avenue and Olive Avenue upon completion. California native Linda Raynsford, recognized as one of the leading mid-career

sculptors working in the public art field today, was commissioned by Williams for the effort. Raynsford’s original design incorporates a laser-cut, Corten steel pattern that will span nearly sixty feet of street footage while adding beauty to the already vibrant street scene. Interested buyers are invited to stop-in and tour the model home at 711 South Ivy Avenue in Monrovia. The model home and sales center is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, closed Tuesday and Wednesday.

Rosemead man joins mass arranged wedding ceremony in Korea On the eve of Valentine’s Day, several Unificationist couples in Los Angeles are packing their bags for a trip to Korea where they are celebrating the romance of arranged marriage as only they do. They include Yoshio Akuzawa from Rosemead and Christine Haugen from Germany who were introduced to each other by their Unificationist parents a year ago. They will say “I do” along with thousands of other couples at a stadium near Seoul on Feb. 12, 2014. The Church’s annual mass wedding in Korea, will be joined by satellite wedding events in several U.S. cities including a ceremony for a local couple in Pasadena at the Pasadena Church parsonage. Akuzawa, 30, whose father is Japanese and whose mother is American, and Haugen, 29, born of a Norwegian father and German mother, are taking their vows in a religious ceremony. They are both adult children of Unificationist couples who were matched in late 1970s and married

by Rev. and Mrs. Sun Myung Moon in 1982. In today’s Unification Church marriages are arranged by parents of the bride and groom, although in some cases, marriage advisers help suggest the arrangement. “It took a long time until the whole matching thing worked out for me because I was looking for the ‘right’ partner until I found out it's all about me becoming the right partner for someone else,” says Christine Haugen. “I created a bucket list for myself for "things to accomplish before turning 30": That included “getting engaged,” going to the Blessing ceremony in Korea and moving to California so with the help of my parents I uploaded my online matching profile available to other Unificationists and shortly after that a parents’ couple contacted my parents, followed by their son and me talking through Skype and e-mail.

A. No. Low Vision doctors are concerned with how much residual vision is available. Our telescope, microscope, E-Scoop & prismatic glasses work for both wet and dry ARMD. Q. Are the glasses expensive? A. Not anymore than hearing aids are expensive. Both low vision glasses and hearing aids allow for a better quality of life and are well worth the investment. No interest financing is available. Q. What if my eyes change or get worse? A. Low Vision glasses can usually be altered in prescription and magnification, should the need arise. At our office, there is no charge for changing the Rx or magnification for one year from the date of the examination. Q. What about this new telescopic implant I’ve heard about? A.

For me a marriage is not just for you; it's about bringing different cultures together and through that contributing your part to create world peace.” Says Akuzawa, “the blessing is important to me, because I feel as though it's something that my parents fought like hell to be able to give to me. My parents, True Parents (Father Moon and Mrs. Moon) and God have given so much for this to be available to me and my generation.”

A quick Google search for “interfaith high school” returns tens of thousands of results for programs, dialogs, coalitions, councils, and more. But only one result names an actual school: The Peace & Justice Academy in Pasadena, CA. The nation’s first full-fledged interfaith high school is currently enrolling freshmen for Fall 2014. This courageous step toward training the next generation of peacemakers is the result of sheer determination and hours of research and prayer, and has been driven by four talented educators: Kimberly Medendorp and Randy Christopher, coexecutive directors of the Peace & Justice Academy; Amira Al-Sarraf, Head of School at New Horizon School, Pasadena; and Lisa Feldman, Head of School at David Weizmann Day School, Pasadena. “We at New Horizon believe the soul is as important as the mind in educating and nurturing in a child’s life,” said Al-Sarraf. “An interfaith high school is a natural extension of this process and a perfect place for this to occur. The Peace & Justice Academy offers young people a criti-

cal opportunity at a critical time to explore one’s own faith and deepen respect and understanding of the faith of others. Those who experience such an education will have a unique advantage to become leaders in their world in expanding minds and hearts and building bridges.” Using the name and campus of the fully accredited, college-prep high school that Medendorp and Christopher founded five years ago has made organizing the new Peace & Justice Academy logistically smoother. The new school will provide an avenue for highly motivated students from all three middle schools to continue studies they began as sixth graders: real-life applications for their faith. The goal of the Peace & Justice Academy has always been to teach students to stand for justice, wage peace, and change the world. Now students will be learning these things in an explicit interfaith context, starting with the Abrahamic faiths. Lisa Feldman believes that Pasadena is perfect for such a bold experiment. “As a microcosm of cultural diversity, Pasadena is ripe for a new and unique

educational environment - one that employs an interdisciplinary approach to engaging students so they may develop the necessary skills to act ethically, think deeply, embrace diversity, and pursue peace and justice.” All students will have classes in their own faith traditions and in the traditions of their fellow students, as well as rigorous preparation for college. In addition, the students will learn and practice mediation, restorative justice, and strategies for non-violent direct action. They will also participate in Peace & Justice Labs, which take them out into the community and faceto-face with the injustices of the world. From Kimberly Medendorp’s perspective, “This is the time to start learning together so that the world's religions can become the solution to its problems and not the cause of them. The first step is tolerance. Tolerance leads to acceptance and celebration of diversity. It is impossible to start on that journey if we don't have a relationship with those who are different from us.”

4 arrested for residential burglary after walking in on Arcadia resident A trio of men knocked on the front door of a residence in the 00 block of West Palm Drive, Arcadia Wednesday. The female resident did not answer the door. One of the men made his way to the back sliding door and made entry to the home through the unlocked door. The resident saw the man inside the home and yelled at him. The suspect fled, along with his cohorts to an awaiting vehicle being driven by a female. The suspect vehicle and occupants left the area. The victim immediately called the Arcadia Police Department and provided the vehicle and

suspect descriptions to the police. A short time later, the vehicle and suspects were found by a patrol officer and stopped. During the investigation, officers found stolen property inside the suspect vehicle. The stolen property was ultimately identified as having been taken in an unrelated residential burglary in Los Angeles County earlier on the 29th. Electronics, jewelry, cash, and other items were recovered in the vehicle. Mario D. Weiks, 19-year-old male from Irvine, Quatrelle J. Carroll, 19-yar-old male from Long Beach, Milton K. Sanders,

20-year-old male from Long Beach, and Jasmin M. Douroux, a 21-year-old female from Lakewood, were all arrested and booked at the Arcadia City Jail on felony residential burglary charges with bails of $50,000.00 each. The investigation is continuing by Detectives from the Arcadia and additional law enforcement agencies. Anyone with information related to this case is asked to call the Arcadia Police Department at (626)574-5156. You can also submit crime tips and information via text, phone, or web to LA Regional Crime Stoppers, 800-222-TIPS (8477).

AB 1557 from combat to college Asm.Holden introduces bill to give returning vets a voice in community college leadership As the war in Afghanistan winds down, thousands of veterans are expected to fill the seats at California’s public colleges and universities. Already the state’s community colleges lead the nation with more than 44,000 vets enrolled – the largest number since World War II. That’s why Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) is proposing legislation to give veterans a stronger voice in college leadership. AB 1557 increases the number of voting members on the Board of Governors at the California Community College system by adding two new members – both reserved for veterans. “Veterans returning to college face unique challenges and colleges across the state are scrambling to offer support. If campuses are not prepared to help these soldiers transition

from combat to college, we run the risk of alienating thousands of returning vets,” said Assemblymember Holden. “With this bill we are saying, we are committed to helping our student veterans – you are not alone, we hear you.” Currently there are 16 voting members on the CCC- Board of Governors and one non-voting member. This bill would increase that total of voting members to 18. One would be for a student who is a current or former member of the Armed Forces. The other would be for a current member or veteran who has demonstrated expertise and leadership in veteran’s affairs. Both would be voting members. “With thousands of student veterans attending California's Community Colleges, and the number increasing as we wind

down these decade long wars, our Veterans need a voice in their college leadership,” stated Patricia D’ Orange Martin, Coordinator of Veterans Services, Pasadena City College. “They can assist in finding solutions that will help the California Community Colleges organize a holistic approach for assisting veterans and improving their chances for success." The following organizations have endorsed AB 1557: American Legion, Department of California AMVETS, Department of California, California Association of County Veterans Service Officers, Military Officers Association of America, CA Council of Chapters, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Department of California, Vietnam Veterans of America, California State Council, California State Commanders Veterans Council

Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) General Manager Phyllis E. Currie on January 31, 2014, called on all Pasadena residents and business owners to voluntarily cut water use by 20 percent, joining the call from state and local leaders to step up water conservation efforts. “Our customers have always rallied during emergencies, conserving water citywide with impressive results,” Currie said. “We’re counting on Pasadena to take the lead to permanently end water waste and support sustainable solutions.” On Jan. 17, 2014, California Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. declared a statewide Drought of Emergency, urging consumers to cut water use by 20 percent and directing state officials to take all necessary actions to prepare for the severe drought conditions. As a result, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) announced that effective today, Jan. 31, 2014, all of its State Water Project deliveries throughout California would be cut to zero for the year. The decision affects 29 public water agencies that buy State Water Project water for about 25 million Californians.

increases in rebate levels for many conservation incentive programs starting March 1, 2014. In addition, PWP’s four-tier water rate encourages conservation design with progressive water rates with the highest tier costing consumers about four times the lowest tier. The structure has been in effect since 2009 and has helped achieve about a 17-percent reduction in per-capita water consumption since 2007. PWP’s website, www. PWPweb.com/SaveWater, offers rebate applications and many resources, including the popular turf-replacement program, conservation tips, water-smart gardening guides, free workshops, how-to videos and a list of permanent water-waste prohibitions. PWP’s 25-year Water Integrated Resource Plan, adopted in 2010, is helping to cut Pasadena’s reliance on imported water by boosting local supplies, increasing conservation and using recycled water for irrigation.

was bussing tables, washing dishes and cooking. Then he grew up to the front desk. Then mom and dad took a step back and the boys ran it. In 1991 we bought his parents out.” As the family also had a restaurant a while back in Arcadia that closed, Donna Rey said things haven’t been perfect in Temple City for some time. “Temple City was our mothership,” she said. “She was our original, our bread and butter. But things have changed in Temple City and it’s made us very hard to survive. We’ve been operating difficultly for a long time.” She added much has changed in Temple City since 1972 that has made doing business difficult. “The change in demographics was the biggest thing,” she said. “Other cultures don’t dine at Mexican restaurants. And a lot of our clientele from this community has moved east. We lost a lot of clientele.” With any business change there could be layoffs and Donna Rey said that’s no different for Casa Del Rey. She added the goal

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. -Photo by Shel Segal

is to minimize the number of people losing their jobs. “We have a lot of employees and this is going to be the hardest thing for us,” she said. “Obviously, we have to eliminate positions. We’re trying our hardest to relocate as many as we can. Ultimately, we have 43 employees, we only need 20 something to operate a restaurant. That’s going to be the hardest part. We need to lay off about 18.” She also said she is hoping her Temple City customers make the trip up Baldwin Avenue to have an enchilada or burrito. “Our goal is to get our current customers to travel

a little bit north to visit us,” Donna Rey said. “Usually, you’re going to travel one to three miles to your local restaurant. So, it’ll be hard. Ed Rey said he’ll miss the Temple City location … but not too much. “It’s bittersweet,” Ed Rey said. “We’ve run our course down here. I think we’re more than ready to move. It’s weird for me because I’ve been coming down here every day since I was 14 years old. It will be a little difficult. As we get closer and closer I’m more ready.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

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.

Monrovia City Notices PUBLIC NOTIFICATION RELEASE OF PRELIMINARY REVIEW MAPS OF PROPOSED NEW AND REVISED EARTHQUAKE FAULT ZONES Preliminary Review Maps of proposed Alquist-Priolo Earthquake Fault Zones were released to the City of Monrovia by the Department of Conservation, California Geological Survey (CGS) on January 8, 2014. These maps are released under the authority of the Alquist-Priolo Earthquake Fault Zoning (AP) Act that was passed following the 1971 San Fernando earthquake. The AP Act is a state law designed to reduce the hazard from surface fault rupture during an earthquake. Earthquake Fault Zones are regulatory zones that encompass surface traces of active faults that have a potential for future surface fault rupture. These zones generally are established about 500 feet on either side of the surface trace of active faults and are defined by turning points that are connected by straight-line segments. The accompanying map shows the general location of the proposed Earthquake Fault Zones within the City of Monrovia. Detailed maps can be seen at the CGS website http://www.conservation.ca.gov/CGS/Pages/ Index.aspx . The Preliminary Review Maps of Earthquake Fault Zones also can be inspected at the following CGS offices: PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICES: SACRAMENTO AREA SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA Publications and Information 345 Middlefield Road, MS 520 801 K Street, MS 14-34 Menlo Park, CA 94025 Sacramento, CA 95814-3532 (650) 688-6327 (916) 327-1850

LOS ANGELES AREA 320 W. 4th St., Suite 850 Los Angeles, CA 90013 (213) 239-0878

What does it mean to be located within an Earthquake Fault Zone? It means that an active fault is present within the zone and the fault may pose a risk of surface fault rupture to existing or future structures. If property is not developed, a fault study may be required before the parcel can be subdivided or before most structures can be permitted. If a property is developed, the AP Act requires that the fact that the property is located within an Earthquake Fault Zone be disclosed by the seller to a prospective buyer for all real estate transactions. Additional information on Earthquake Fault Zones and disclosure can be found at the CGS website http://www.consrv.ca.gov/cgs/rghm/ap/Pages/main.aspx . The January 8, 2014 release date begins a 90-day public comment period designed to provide the opportunity for the State Mining and Geology Board to receive technical review comments that may have a bearing on the proposed Earthquake Fault Zones maps. Comments should be sent to the State Mining and Geology Board before April 8, 2014. Comments should be addressed to: Stephen Testa, Executive Officer State Mining and Geology Board 801 K Street, MS 20-15 Sacramento, CA 95814-3528 Email: smgb@conservation.ca.gov (916) 322-1082 The State Mining and Geology Board (SMGB) will hold a public hearing near the end of the 90-day review period.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDING AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. Notice is hereby given that RECONTRUST COMPANY, N.A., as duly appointed trustee pursuant to the Deed of Trust executed by DAVID SMITH, A WIDOWER, dated 10/23/2008 and recorded 11/3/2008, as Instrument No. 20081943274, 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 02/20/2014 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: 5531 NORTH ASPAN AVENUE, AZUSA, CA, 91702. 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 $308,582.22. 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.

ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED WILL BE USED FOR THAT PURPOSE. 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. 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, this information can be obtained from one of the following three companies: LPS Agency Sales and Posting at (714) 730-2727, or visit the Internet Web site www.lpsasap.com (Registration required to search for sale information) or Priority Posting and Publishing at (714) 573-1965 or visit the Internet Web site www.priorityposting. com (Click on the link for “Advanced Search” to search for sale information), or auction.com at 1-800-280-2832 or visit the Internet Web site www.auction.com, using the Trustee Sale No. shown above.

Happy trails to you in Monrovia Continued from page 1

and involves thousands of advocates that played an important role in its formation, according to historian Alice Griselle who wrote a piece for the booklet. “In the 1980s, precipitating events that ultimately influenced the creation of the Hillside Preserve were the development of Gold Hills with fifty-four lots and the submittal of a preliminary subdivision plan for additional lots on the San Lorenzo Nursery Property in Cloverleaf Canyon. Additionally, a 130-acre Lux Arboretum property in the Cloverleaf Canyon area was donated to the city which was significant acreage to start a preserve area. The pressure to develop the hillsides became of concern to the City of Monrovia and the city council appointed a group of hillside property owners and residents to the hillside advisory committee. For the next ten years, the committee worked diligently with the consulting firm of Planning Associates to develop a comprehensive plan to sensitively provide for development in the hillsides. Specific plans were created for the Cloverleaf Canyon, Norumbega, and Madison Avenue areas with specific lot locations and sizes, restrictive contour grading conditions, and sightline restrictions. The planning commission hearings to consider the specific plan were contentious and lasted for many months. As a result of the difficult and numerous planning commission meetings that went far into the night, two conservancies had been formed to advocate for limited development or outright purchase of the hillsides. Starting in January 2000, the city council held a series of public hearings. On March 16, 2000, the city council approved Land Plan “C Modified.” Land Plan “C Modified” covered the properties contained in the original cloverleaf canyon specific plan and those added by subsequent amendment to the specific plan area, the Madison Avenue and Norumbega specific plans,” Griselle said in her eloquent essay. She continues… “The city council unanimously voted to place several related hillside measures on a special election ballot which were referred to as Mea-

sures A and B. Measure A ratified the city council’s decision to maintain the lowest possible density by establishing development densities and zoning definitions for properties that could be purchased and held as undeveloped open space. Measure B authorized a special tax to generate $10 million over thirty years (through the annual revenue stream or as a bonded lump sum) to purchase land zoned as “Hillside Wilderness Preserve” and “Hillside Recreation Area” as permanent open space, and $80,000 per year of on going property tax revenue for future maintenance of the areas. The Measures A & B Committee worked to educate the voters on the importance of the preservation of the hillsides. The voters overwhelmingly passed Measures A (84%) and B (77%) at the July 11, 2000, election. The election did three things: (1) Approved a new “Wilderness Preserve” and “Hillside Recreation” general plan and zoning classifications; (2) Approved a parcel tax to acquire hillside open space; and, (3) Ratified the city council’s March 16, 2000, approvals of Plan “C Modified” for the hillside areas. In August, the city council appointed a wilderness preserve steering committee to develop an open space acquisition plan to direct and prioritize acquisition of properties. The process for the purchase of the properties provided considerable opportunities for public input with forty-eight committee meetings. From 2002 to 2009, eleven transactions for purchase of properties were completed with city bond and state grant monies. The total expenditures were $25,000,000 of which $9,000,000 came from the city and the balance was funded by the state. These properties were added to the hillside properties that were already owned by the city such as the Arboretum property and formed the 1,416-acre project area. Purchase of the hillside properties by the city prevented over one hundred homes and associated streets and utilities from being constructed.” The Monrovia Community Services Commission was designated as the advisory body to oversee the stewardship of the project area, protect impor-

tant natural resources, and where appropriate, recommend passive recreation opportunities. The state grants require that the city preserve and protect all natural resources in perpetuity and provide for walking, hiking and bird watching opportunities. A trail committee was appointed by the community services commission to advise them on historic trails and potential trails. A resource management plan was commissioned and followed a framework of core values and goals established by the community and approved by the community services commission in 2005. The community services commission conducted meetings from August 2006 to September 2008 to discuss public access alternatives and resource management strategies. On January 20, 2009, the city council adopted the resource management plan. Subsequently, the use of a mitigated negative declaration for approving the resource management plan was legally challenged and the city then completed an environmental impact report which was ratified by the city council. With the resource management plan in place and funding from Measure B, the community services department and community services commission continue to guide the implementation of a trail network. In addition to the historical side of the book, there’s a well-researched geolgy and plant identification which is invaluable to anyone entering the preserve. Also well-placed is a section on wildlife you may encounter during your visit to this vast preserve. With maps and insect guides, this is one of the most comprehensive guides we’ve seen about the wilderness in our backyard. As of this writing, the only legal access to the Preserve is at 873 Ridgeside Drive. The other access points ( Highland and Alta Vista ) are in limbo at present due to ongoing work and easement concerns. To obtain a copy of this free guide, please come by our newspaper offices at 125 East Chestnut in Monrovia. The book is also available at City Hall, Monrovia Community Center, the Library Bookstore, Dr. Demotor’s animal hospital, Adams and Barnes C21 offices and at Canyon Park.
