U.S. Attorney indicts two more Men's Central jail deputies

Black History Parade and Festival this Saturday - Feb. 15

On Friday the U.S. Attorney’s office announced an indictment alleging that two deputies illegally used force on an inmate in 2009, and then lied about the incident in their reports. One of the deputies had previously been relieved of duty as a result of an unrelated incident. The process to relieve him and the second indicted deputy of duty without pay began Friday. The Sheriff’s Department has been actively assisting the federal government’s investigation, including Please see page 27

Suspect arrested after armed robbery at Arcadia ATM Arcadia Police received a call of an armed robbery that had just occurred in the 1200 block of South Baldwin Avenue close to 8AM Wednesday.

In addition to describing the suspect, the witness gave a description of a white Ford truck, containing gardening equipment, the suspect was seen driving away from the location of the armed robbery.

ACLU puts Supes in hot water, again Not entirely unexpected, the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California sued the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Thursday for voting to return a religious cross to the official County seal. “The restoration of the cross to the County seal favors the Christian religion over all other religions,” says the federal lawsuit. It argues that the addition of the cross would violate the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution. The clause, part of the First Amendment, bars the preference of one religion over another by government agencies. The ACLU is representing eight religious lead-

Pasadena Village honors volunteers at inaugural recognition luncheon The Pasadena Village, a non-profit organization serving older adults in the San Gabriel Valley, will honor its many volunteers at a recognition luncheon on February 22. The luncheon will give Village members and friends the opportunity to recognize the important contributions volunteers are making to the organization and thank them for the positive impact their work is having on the Village’s 125 members. The Pasadena Village’s 94 active volunteers, many of whom are also members of the Village, help older adults remain engaged in the community by providing services such as local transportation and minor household repairs. These

volunteer services make it possible for members to live safely in their homes as they grow older and become less able to care for their changing needs. “I really like being able to lend a helping hand. I’ve had times when I have needed extra help, and it feels good to be able to provide that for others,” says Barbara Bardwell, who has been volunteering regularly with the Village since last May. Volunteers also serve on Village committees, helping to plan events and educational programs for members and the general public. “As with all successful Villages, the bedrock of our culture is volunteerism,” says board co-chair Mike Babcock. “The Pasadena Village is blessed with

members and non-members who enjoy providing a wide array of services to any member who picks up the phone. I hope every volunteer knows how much they are appreciated.” The Pasadena Village’s First Annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon will be held at Mijares Restaurant in Pasadena. The Pasadena Village is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization connecting seniors to programs, services and cultural activities that encourage them to stay independent, active, and engaged in the community. For more information about joining or volunteering with the Pasadena Village, contact Sue Kujawa at 626-765-6037, or visit www. pasadenavillage.org .

Assemblymember Roger Hernández (D – West Covina) announced today the introduction of AB 1558. This bill would ensure public access to comprehensive and uniform information on healthcare costs and prices via a website while protecting patient confidentiality and respecting providers of care. “It is very crucial and of the utmost importance that Californians have access to health-care cost data across the state. In recent years, the cost of health care has risen

significantly and many families do not have the expertise or knowledge on the cost of any health procedure.” stated Hernández. AB 1558 addresses the need for price transparency for consumers on health related expenses. This bill makes readily available information on costs of medical procedures and what consumers can expect to pay for those services. With access to this information, consumers are able to get a better assessment of their health care need and possi-

bly negotiate any discounts that may apply. All-payer Claims Databases have been established in several states including: Maine, Colorado, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Kansas. “Families are in need. They are in need of opportunities to negotiate better pricing for procedures that would otherwise hinder their financial situation. This bill provides consumers with the necessary tools to find out actual pricing and discounts applied to health related services,” said Hernández.

February is also Rosa Park's birthday Dear Editor: Where is the Love? February is a very interesting month. Why so interesting? After all, it is the shortest month of the year but it is noted for what? Some might say Valentine’s Day, the day we share loving thoughts; some others may say the celebration of Black history. It has been around since 1926. Embedded in the month of February are powerful birthdays. One is George Wash-

ington, one of the founding fathers of America. The

others are very intriguing: The second one Abraham

Lincoln who helped change the course of history so that peculiar institution, slavery, would fade into the history books after a tremendous loss of life. Who was the person who influenced Lincoln? A former slave named Frederick Douglas. The diminutive person by the name of Rosa Parks also has a birthday in February. February is a short month but it does pack a powerful punch. Ralph Walker

When will they stop!? Dear Editor: The Sierra Madre Government is constantly doing things that are against the best interests of the property owners of the City. We don’t have money to make the necessary repairs to the property that the City controls, but they can spend $125,000 on directional signs so we might know where City Hall or the swimming pool or the tennis courts are, etc., and $50,000 for an EIR report of the 710 Freeway or to send several government people to Washington, D.C. A Council Member suggests that the City impose a 30% water conservation move as if the people haven’t already done that. Why are there five different water rates? Which one is the TRUE cost? We do not have a drought just because the governor says so. According to the water master of

the Blue Diamond Reservoir at Hemet, there is no water shortage, and the MWD also agrees. There are 232,000 acre feet of water behind the San Gabriel River Dam, which Pasadena has received water from for over 70 years. It is the City’s job to supply the needs of the property owners and no if’s or but’s at the true cost and without penalties. The Council Member also wants a building moratorium. We already have one in place because a property owner cannot obtain approval to build no matter how hard they abide by the ordinances and guidelines. It took three years to gain approval by the City Council for a property owner to add two units on his property. The architect of three North Baldwin properties cannot obtain approval because of the personal likes and dislikes

of the Planning Commission or the City Council. An architect who was formerly on the Planning Commission cannot obtain approval just because his client wanted three garages on an extralarge lot on Rancho Avenue. In other words, we already have a building moratorium even though these applicants present plans that are in line with all the guidelines. Then, of course, if they ever obtain approval, they are faced with all sorts of fees, the development fee which makes no sense, the 1% art promotion fee which is also a penalty, the Pasadena School District fee, the plan check fee, the conditional use permit fee, and any others that the City can pile on. Do all of these actions help or hurt the property owners and when will they stop? Sierra Madre Watchman

Immigration a political hot potato Dear Editor: I am dismayed that the Independent chose to run a release by Congresswoman Judy Chu, re immigration reform, with no opposing view ("Representative Judy Chu Responds To Republican Principles For Immigration Reform," February 6, 2014). Judy Chu and her fellow Democrats call for

"comprehensive immigration reform." House Speaker John Boehner counters with "a pathway to citizenship" for illegal immigrants, outlined in the Border Security Results Act (HR 1471). What both parties are proposing is amnesty on the installment plan. They are caving in to pressure from open-border advocates and big-business interests. They

are ignoring the plight of 20 million unemployed Americans and the security of citizens and legal residents and, in effect, rewarding law-breakers. The Supreme Court ruled in the 1982 case INS v. Lopez-Mendoza that illegal immigration is a crime. Remaining in the country illegally is a continuing crime. Les Hammer

Resident thanks Glen Owens Though the fire in the Monrovia hillside was sad and unfortunate, it must be said that no one over the last forty five years has championed and defended Monrovia’s interface more than Glen Owens. No one comment that anyone makes, designed to hurt someone, can erase all the great things Glen has done for saving the

foothills. The residents of Monrovia benefitted from $16 million of State funds that saved the foothills from housing developments. America was founded on the ideal of sharing natural areas with the people of this nation. The purchase of these properties by Monrovia homeowners and the State wasn’t to mere-

ly expand the backyards of a privileged few living in north Monrovia. Monrovia needs to step up and do the right thing and open the trails like other neighboring cities. It has been proven that more hikers eyes on the trails and wilderness prevent fires. Glen published the book at his own expense. Glen A. Faulk

Arcadia City council candidates to debate March 6 The five candidates hoping to get one of three open seats on the City Council will debate March 6, according to a press release sent out by Arcadia Chamber of Commerce. Mickey Segal’s announcement that he is not seeking re-election and two of the incumbents -- Bob Harbicht and Peter Amundson-- facing term limits, the race is wide-open. Tom Beck, Burton L. Brink, Roger Chandler, Sho Tay and Paul E. Van Fleet have filed nomination papers and will appear on the ballot for the three

open seats. The Arcadia Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the forum with the Arcadia Association of Realtors. The forum will be held at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of the Arcadia Public Library. There will be enough seating for 175 people. The all mail ballot election is April 8, but the city is expected to mail out ballots in early March. Scott Hettrick and an official from the AAR will moderate the forum. Written questions will be accepted from the audience.

CAL FIRE receives FAA Award

-Photo by Terry Miller

For a third year in a row the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) presented CAL FIRE and DynCorp International with the FAA’s Diamond Award of Excellence for Aviation Maintenance. The award recognizes CAL FIRE’s aviation maintenance unit after all maintenance technicians pass a rigorous and specialized aircraft safety training program CAL FIRE’s fleet of airtankers and helicopters are vital to our ability to extinguish wildfires,” said Chief Ken Pimlott, director of CAL FIRE. “This award is a testament to the hardwork our aviation staff and the DynCorp International mechanics devote every single day to keep our aircraft safely flying.” CAL FIRE maintains 23 airtankers, 14 airtactical

aircraft, 11 helicopters, and numerous other fixed-wing training and administrative aircraft. All the aircraft are maintained at the department’s maintenance base at McClellan Air Parkin Sacramento County. Since the beginning of CAL FIRE’s air program in the 1970s, safety and superior maintenance has been a top priority. Along with CAL FIRE’s seasonal aviation experts, DynCorp International mechanics ensure that the state’s firefighting air fleet is kept in pristine condition. “I am very proud of the effort and dedication of our team to achieve the third consecutive FAA Diamond Award,” said Jeffrey Cavarra, DynCorp International. “The CAL FIRE Aviation Program is a great example of a Public/Private Partnership

and DynCorp International is proud to be part of the team.” This year’s drought has required CAL FIRE to keep nearly half of its airbases open during the time when the aircraft would typically be brought in for maintenance. CAL FIRE and DynCorps’ maintenance team have worked tirelessly to get CAL FIRE’s fleet operational in a timely manner. CAL FIRE’s airtankers and helicopters have kept busy across the state as the department has responded to over 500 wildfires that have charred over 1,130 acres. In a normal year the department would responded to fewer than 130 small wildfires. For more information on CAL FIRE’s firefighting air program visit www.fire.ca.gov.

InnerViews Red paper, white doilies and paste Red construction paper, white paper doilies, scissors and some paste—ahhh! The essence of Valentine’s Day! In my little country school, we busily made our own valentines. Did we stay indoors and do it at recess? Surely valentine-making was not part of the curriculum. Or was there not the strict adherence to accountability then and there that there is here and now? Who knows? Chalk it up to a lesson in art! First you fold and crease the red paper. Then you form half a heart. Maybe you painstakingly pencil it in; maybe you daringly cut the shape freehand. A fat, round, plump heart. Or a long, slender one. Or maybe you manage an exotic, sort of S-shaped one. See the creativity? This truly is a lesson in art. But you’ve only just begun. You cut hearts of graduated sizes, because you are going to layer them. Maybe you cut some pink and white hearts, too, to alternate them for accents. Really small hearts can be pasted here and there for special effects. This project is becoming more artistic by the minute! The doilies are more of a challenge. They’re round, of course, but not of the same arc as the curves of the heart, so you have to figure out a way to make them

By Fran Syverson fit. Hmm…a math concept seems to be creeping in. Our cards, each unique, were meant, of course, to take home to Mom and Dad after the “I love you” or “Be my Valentine” greetings were written on them. Ahh!...time to show off our penmanship! So, if anyone ever wondered whether making valentines was a bona fide use of educational hours, I guess we could say there were some plausible rationalizations. For us, though, it mostly was just fun. We loved this red-and-white holiday. We admired each other’s creations (“Oh, that’s so cute!”) We borrowed ideas from each other (“How did you make that arrow?”) Lingering in my memories are the crumply feel of the embossed doilies and the smell of the paste. Library paste, it was called. It came in little jars, along with short, stiffbristled brushes and metal handles. I can even remember its taste—I guess I must have licked my fingers somewhere in the process. Then there were the cards for the other kids. Usually they were store-bought bags of small, glossy cards with huge red hearts as their motif. Sometimes the greetings were more corny than pseudo-romantic. As Valen-

tine’s Day neared, the teacher would decorate a big box with a lid. We’d drop our cards through a slot in the lid and await the Big Day. There was a firm rule—all or none. If you brought valentines, you had to bring one for every classmate. Valentine’s Day was not the time for broken hearts. Valentine’s Day was also party time. Every year, one of the moms would provide cupcakes. They were decorated, maybe with pink frosting and red sugary sprinkles. And we’d have those half-inch sized, pastelcolored candies, lettered with “Be mine” or “Luv” or “My honey.” Do kids exchange valentines nowadays? Like most things, it’s more complicated now. They likely have 30 or so classmates; we had 12 in our entire school, first through eighth grades. Do they ever cut red paper hearts and paste white doily frills onto them? Do they know what library paste tastes like? Or do they twitter, perhaps? How un-fun is that! Pondering all this, I become inspired. It’s time to buy some red paper, white doilies, paste, and cupcake mix. Time to pay a visit to my young great-grandchildren! I hope their mom will be delighted.

Glimpses of Black history in Pasadena, 1850-1950 PMH Education Volunteer Adrian Panton takes us on a visual journey through a century of Black history in Pasadena and neighboring communities at a free presentation at the Altadena Senior Center on Tuesday, February 25, at 1:00 pm. Despite this area’s long tradition of diversity, much local recorded history has been heavily focused on elite elements of local life, with emphasis on topics such as Arroyo culture, Craftsman art and architecture, the Indiana Colony and their citrus groves, and the mansions of the very rich. While important, the emphasis on these particular stories leaves out the experiences of many of the city’s residents – individual and groups that contributed substantially to the growth of this area into the communities we know today. In 2009, Pasadena Museum of History

Carrie McAdoo’s grocery store at 679 S. Fair Oaks Avenue, circa 1909 (Black History Collection, BH-L-24-11)

took steps to correct this historical bias through the groundbreaking exhibition Family Stories: Sharing a Community’s Legacy. Mr. Panton developed Glimpses of Early Black History based on research he undertook in conjunction with the Family Stories exhibition. Thew photos in the Black History Collection were provided to Pasadena Museum of His-

tory by families of early African-American settlers in Pasadena. Through these photos of individuals, groups, and places, we experience the presence of the African-American community from the mid-1850s through 1950 in the Pasadena/Altadena area and throughout the West San Gabriel Valley. Tickets: Free; No reservations required.

Black History Month program will include homage, games and origins of jazz The Pasadena Senior Center will present a special program Monday, Feb. 17, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in honor of Black History Month. The event will include an homage to historic African Americans, their accomplishments and their impact on the world today; an entertaining Who Am I game that will test

participants’ sense of black history; and a discussion about the origins of jazz. The admission price is $5 in advance, payable at the welcome desk or by calling (626) 7954331. Tickets may also be purchased at the door for $7 pending availability. The program is sponsored by the Ebony Ladies Committee of the

Pasadena Senior Center. Founded in 1959, the Pasadena Senior Center is an independent, nonprofit organization that offers recreational, educational, wellness and social services to people ages 50 and over in a friendly environment. Services are also provided for frail, lowincome and homebound seniors.

Lifeline for Pets Cat of the Week: Meet cute "Katana" Are you looking for a sweet and loving cat? Katana is the one! She is friendly, curious, playful, and likes to be petted. She is pretty, too, with light blue eyes. She is healthy, but has been passed up because she is only partially sighted. However, no meds are required, and she copes very well. Katana would do best in a quiet home, either as an only pet or with perhaps another calm pet. Katana loves to spend time in her cat tree, basking in the sun's

warmth. See her videos on our website, posted below. Please help this deserving kitty find a real home, at last!

Margarita Sandoval Monrovia Youth of Year

Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts announces 2013-14 benefit chair: Mary Ann Clayton

By SHEL SEGAL

Margarita Sandoval, a senior at Monrovia High School, was honored on Feb. 6 as the “Youth of the Year” by the Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills at a ceremony at the DoubleTree by Hilton – Monrovia for her outstanding contributions to their community. The two other honorees for the award were Donye Neal, a senior at Canyon Oaks High School in Duarte, and Samantha Rodarte, a senior at Monrovia High School. Each student was awarded with two $500 college scholarships. Sandoval will now compete at the county level on March 19. Each honoree had to give a speech. Sandoval said in hers that she will never try to impose limits on what she can do. “The club taught us that we should never be afraid to do anything, that we should never set limits for ourselves, that we should reach above and beyond for the stars because we were special for who we were,” she said. After the county level,

there is the state level. State winners each receive a $1,000 scholarship and participate in regional competitions. Five regional winners receive $10,000 scholarships and compete on the national level. The National Youth of the Year receives an additional $50,000 scholarship and is installed by the President of the United States. In early January, the three candidates presented a three-minute speech to a panel of nine judges, who scored their presentations based on three key areas: service, character and leadership. Matt Weaver, the board chair for the club, said listening to the speeches is the key

for the evening. “It’s real exciting to hear them speak because it’s very, very motivating to hear what these kids have overcome and where they are now,” Weaver said. “It’s very inspiring. A lot of them are at-risk who have turned their lives around.” Nick Boone, a board member, said he enjoys watching the students progress over the years. “It so inspiring to see how far they’ve come from where they entered the club,” he said. “It’s really what the Boys & Girls Club is all about.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts has announced Mary Ann Clayton as its 50th Benefit Chair for 2013-14. As Benefit Chair, Clayton is responsible for overseeing the entire Annual Benefit, the Pasadena Showcase House of Design, known to the public as Showcase House, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with a spectacular 1915 English Country Estate designed by Stiles O. Clements. This year’s Showcase House will be featured, along with the 49 past Showcase Houses in a commemorative book, 50 Years of Pasadena Showcase Design Houses. Clayton shares her thoughts about this milestone event, “this year, I have the amazing honor of guiding our organization through the process of putting together a Showcase House for the fiftieth time. This is the Golden Anniversary of the Pasadena Showcase House of Design. I have been very fortunate in getting to know most of the strong, creative women who have gone before me in heading up this project. They are, indeed, a dynamic group.” In 2001, Clayton became a member of PSHA when she was invited to join the organization by a good friend. During the intervening years, she has held many prominent positions on the Benefit Committee, including: Interior Co-chair, Exterior Co- chair, Tickets Cochair, Restaurant Co-chair, Shops at Showcase Co-chair, Special Evenings Co-chair, Shops at Showcase Treasurer and Tickets Marketing Chair. She has served on the Board as Provisional Chair, Secretary, Benefit Treasurer, Season Tickets Chair and Instrumental Competition Chair. She has also served on the Policies and Procedures, Gifts and Grants, and Membership and Finance committees. All of this has helped prepare her for facilitating the most widely recognized and successful Showcase House in the country. Speaking about the gratification of being Benefit Chair and part of PSHA, Clayton says “no one is looking forward to opening day 2014 more than I. The designers have presented wonderfully creative ideas for the interior and exterior spaces. We are all excited to see these de-

signs come to life, and then to share the finished estate with the public. For me, the best part is getting to know the other wonderful members of this group of very focused, hard-working people. Each year we undertake a seemingly impossible project to earn money in order to fund our music programs and support arts throughout our community.” Clayton’s own musical background endears her to PSHA’s award winning Pasadena Showcase House Music Mobile™ Program, the Pasadena Showcase House Annual Youth Concert, and Pasadena Showcase House Annual Instrumental Competition. “I identify with PSHA's mission statement, having studied music since the age of 5, starting with piano, then trumpet, French horn and flute. I have fond memories of participating in the annual instrumental competitions in Northern Ohio in grades 9 through 12, and working to earn a coveted ‘excellent’ rating as a solo contestant, or as part of a duet or trio.” Clayton lives in Altadena with her husband, Rob, and their amazing tri-color Cocker Spaniel, Roxie, while their two grown children reside in New York City. Clayton holds a PhD in Geophysics and has worked for the United States Geological Survey, Jet Propulsion Laboratory and a small oil exploration company. In her free time, Clayton enjoys sewing, quilting, hand weaving and skiing. She is also a member of the San Marino League and Altadena Guild of Huntington Memorial Hospital where she has served as Benefit Chair and President. About Pasadena Show-

case House for the Arts: This is a milestone year for PSHA as it celebrates 65 years of volunteerism, the 50th Anniversary of the Pasadena Showcase House of Design and, since 1948, the generous awarding of over $19 million in gifts and grants in support of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Walt Disney Concert Hall, numerous non-profit organizations and local symphonic, cultural and educational musically-oriented programs for youth and young adults. An all-volunteer organization, Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts (PSHA) is a non-profit California Corporation whose members donate their time and talents to produce the annual Pasadena Showcase House of Design. Founded in 1948, and formerly known as The Pasadena Junior Philharmonic Committee, PSHA adopted the Pasadena Showcase House of Design as its annual benefit in 1965. It is one of the oldest, largest and most successful house and garden tours in the nation. PSHA volunteers are united by their belief in the power and beauty of music. Their collective desire is to fund programs that nurture the study and appreciation of music, utilize music as a vehicle towards health and healing, and ensure that music is available to a broad range of audiences. The 2014 Pasadena Showcase House of Design will be open to the public Sunday, April 13 through Sunday, May 11.

students and faculty alike – are excited to be able to work with Egan. “I am really excited,” Volpe said. “I think it’s a really great opportunity for our students to perform with a professional, not only for the performance, but to have the time to work here on stage.” Volpe added that the students have really being listening to Egan, especially since she’s not a teacher. “For some reason when she says it it’s a little more memorable,” he said. “They pay her a little more attention.” Sue Cook, executive director of the Arcadia Performing Arts Foundation, said Egan is really going out of her way to work with the students. “She’s working with the kids doing a master class and she’s teaching them some songs,” Cook said. “She’s going to include them in her show on stage. She’ll be doing a duet with one of the students whose dream it is to be on Broadway. So, talk about a dream come true!” Cook added the

students are really enjoying the opportunity to work with a Broadway actress. “They’re thrilled,” she said. “For some of the kids this is what they want to do with their lives. To have her come, one-on-one, it’s really exciting.” Cook also said it’s wonderful to be doing all this in the newly completed Arcadia Performing Arts Center. “I don’t know if they notice how lucky they are until they go and look at colleges and discover they’re high school is nicer than this,” she said. And working in the Performing Arts Center is not just for actors, Cook said “They’re not just learning (acting),” she said. “They’re learning how to build sets, how to do the lighting, the sound. They’re trained to industry standards. They could go get a job.” For ticket information, log onto www.arcadiapaf. org. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com).

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

Why Classic?

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

Compliance through great patient care

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

Our CPAP Circle of Care® program

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

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

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

Download on Demand® - Driving Compliance

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

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

Skeptical?

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

Not currently screening for Sleep Apnea?

If you are not currently screening your patients for sleep apnea and would like to learn more about how we can help you, please call.

The prescribing doctor receives documentation by eFax (or electronically via EMR system integration), starting with confirmation of receipt of the referral through every touch we have with the patient. This includes a copy of the 2-page compliance reports containing our Download on Demand® data and a copy of the notes made by our clinician during a call. Our proprietary systems automate the flow of documentation keeping referring doctors completely informed about their patients’ progress and ensure physicians have the documentation they need for follow-up consultations with their patients.

"This is the culmination of the dedication of our AP teachers and the determination of our AP scholars.

In November, the College Board recognized the El Monte Union High School District as one of 477 school districts in the United States and Canada to increase access to AP coursework while simultaneously increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP exams.

The College Board is a mission-driven not-for-profit organization that connects students to college success and opportunity. Founded in 1900, the College Board was created to expand access to higher education. The College Board’s Advanced Placement program enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college level studies, with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both, while still in high school. This July, the El Monte Union High School District, along with the large and small district also recognized by the College Board, will be honored in Philadelphia at the annual AP conference.

Black History month begins in Chicago during the late summer of 1915 An alumnus of the University of Chicago with many friends in the city, Carter G. Woodson traveled from Washington, D.C. to participate in a national celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of emancipation sponsored by the state of Illinois. Thousands of African Americans travelled from across the country to see exhibits highlighting the progress their people had made since the destruction of slavery. Awarded a doctorate in Harvard three years earlier, Woodson joined the other exhibitors with a black history display. Despite being held at the Coliseum, the site of the 1912 Republican convention, an overflow crowd of six to twelve thousand waited outside for their turn to view the exhibits. Inspired by the three-week celebration, Woodson decided to form an organization to promote the scientific study of black life and history before leaving town. On September 9th, Woodson met at the Wabash YMCA with A. L. Jackson and three others and formed the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH). He hoped that others would popularize the findings that he and other black intellectuals would publish in The Journal of Negro History, which he established in 1916. As early as 1920, Woodson urged black civic organizations to promote the achievements that researchers were uncovering. A graduate member of Omega Psi Phi, he urged his fraternity brothers to take up the work. In 1924, they responded with the creation of Negro History and Literature Week, which they renamed Negro Achievement Week. Their outreach was significant, but Woodson desired greater impact. As he told an audience of Hampton Institute students, “We are going back to that beautiful history and it is going to inspire us to greater achievements.” In 1925, he decided that the Association had to shoulder the responsibility. Going forward it would both create and popularize knowledge about the black past. He sent out a press release announcing Negro History Week in February, 1926. Woodson chose February for reasons of tradition and reform. It is commonly said that Woodson selected February to encompass the birthdays of two great

Americans who played a prominent role in shaping black history, namely Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass, whose birthdays are the 12th and the 14th, respectively. More importantly, he chose them for reasons of tradition. Since Lincoln’s assassination in 1865, the black community, along with other Republicans, had been celebrating the fallen President’s birthday. And since the late 1890s, black communities across the country had been celebrating Douglass’. Well aware of the pre-existing celebrations, Woodson built Negro History Week around traditional days of commemorating the black past. He was asking the public to extend their study of black history, not to create a new tradition. In doing so, he increased his chances for success. Yet Woodson was up to something more than building on tradition. Without saying so, he aimed to reform it from the study of two great men to a great race. Though he admired both men, Woodson had never been fond of the celebrations held in their honor. He railed against the “ignorant spellbinders” who addressed large, convivial gatherings and displayed their lack of knowledge about the men and their contributions to history. More importantly, Woodson believed that history was made by the people, not simply or primarily by great men. He envisioned the study and celebration of the Negro as a race, not simply as the producers of a great man. And Lincoln, however great, had not freed the slaves—the Union Army, including hundreds of thousands of black soldiers and sailors, had done that. Rather than focusing on two men, the black community, he believed, should focus on the countless black men and women who had contributed to the advance of human civilization. Like most ideas that resonate with the spirit of the times, Negro History Week proved to be more dynamic than Woodson or the Association could control. By the 1930s, Woodson complained about the intellectual charlatans, black and white, popping up everywhere seeking to take advantage of the public interest in black history.

He warned teachers not to invite speakers who had less knowledge than the students themselves. Increasingly publishing houses that had previously ignored black topics and authors rushed to put books on the market and in the schools. Instant experts appeared everywhere, and non-scholarly works appeared from “mushroom presses.” In America, nothing popular escapes either commercialization or eventual trivialization, and so Woodson, the constant reformer, had his hands full in promoting celebrations worthy of the people who had made the history. In the 1940s, efforts began slowly within the black community to expand the study of black history in the schools and black history celebrations before

the public. In the South, black teachers often taught Negro History as a supplement to United States history. One early beneficiary of the movement reported that his teacher would hide Woodson’s textbook beneath his desk to avoid drawing the wrath of the principal. During the Civil Rights Movement in the South, the Freedom Schools incorporated black history into the curriculum to advance social change. The Negro History movement was an intellectual insurgency that was part of every larger effort to transform race relations. The 1960s had a dramatic effect on the study and celebration of black history. Before the decade was over, Negro History Week would be well on its way to becoming Black

History Month. The shift to a month-long celebration began even before Dr. Woodson death. As early as 1940s, blacks in West Virginia, a state where Woodson often spoke, began to celebrate February as Negro History Month. In Chicago, a now forgotten cultural activist, Fredrick H. Hammaurabi, started celebrating Negro History Month in the mid-1960s. Having taken an African name in the 1930s, Hammaurabi used his cultural center, the House of Knowledge, to fuse African consciousness with the study of the black past. By the late 1960s, as young blacks on college campuses became increasingly conscious of links with Africa, Black History Month replaced Negro History Week at a quickening

Everyday is an open house:

pace. Within the Association, younger intellectuals, part of the awakening, prodded Woodson’s organization to change with the times. They succeeded. In 1976, fifty years after the first celebration, the Association used its influence to institutionalize the shifts from a week to a month and from Negro history to black history. Since the mid-1970s, every American president, Democrat and Republican, has issued proclamations endorsing the Association’s annual theme. What Carter G. Woodson would say about the continued celebrations is unknown, but he would smile on all honest efforts to make black history a field of serious study and provide the public with thoughtful celebrations.

The ACLU of California and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area (LCCR) today filed a lawsuit charging the state with unconstitutionally stripping tens of thousands of people of their right to vote. According to the lawsuit, filed in Alameda County Superior Court, the state’s actions clearly violated state law when the Secretary of State issued a directive to local elections officials in December 2011 asserting that people are ineligible to vote if they are on post-release community supervision or mandatory supervision. These are two new and innovative forms of community-based supervision created under California’s Criminal Justice Realignment Act for people recently incarcerated for low-level, non-violent, non-serious crimes. Court intervention is necessary because a state official should not be able to disenfranchise 60,000 voters with the stroke of a pen. “The Secretary of State should be working to increase voter participation, not to undermine it,” said Michael Risher, a staff attorney with the ACLU of Northern California. “California has dismal rates of voter registration and participation. The Secretary of State is making this even worse by disenfranchising

cratic process.” “Society is much more secure when all people feel they are fully part of it,” said Dorsey Nunn, executive director of All of Us Or None, one of the plaintiff organizations. “If we want formerly incarcerated Californians to be good citizens, we need to convince them that they are a part of society too. I have never met a graffiti artist who spray paints his own home or business.” After California voters in 1974 approved Proposition 10, state law has been clear that the only people ineligible to vote in California are those who are in state prison or on parole. “Voting should be part of a successful reintegration into one’s community, but the Secretary of State’s memo takes us in the wrong direction,” said Jennifer A. Waggoner, President, League of Women Voters of California, another organizational plaintiff. “People of color are being disenfranchised and thousands of voters and county officials are being confused about their voting rights. The strength of our democracy comes from allowing everyone to fulfill their civic responsibility to vote.” The League has been fighting for expanded voting rights for all since 1920, when it was founded by the activists who secured the right to vote for women.

tens of thousands of California citizens who are trying to re-engage with their communities. With voting rights under attack across the nation, and the U.S. Supreme Court’s disappointing decision striking down a critical law that protected the right to vote for people of color and language minorities, California needs more protection – not less – for voting rights.” The lawsuit was filed on behalf of three people who have or will soon lose their right to vote, along with the League of Women Voters of California and All of Us Or None, a nonprofit organization that advocates for the rights of formerly and currently incarcerated people and their families. “The law clearly establishes a presumption in favor of the right to vote, with only limited and specific exceptions,” said Meredith Desautels, staff attorney of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area. “The Secretary of State unilaterally expanded these exceptions, without any public comment or input, disenfranchising thousands of members of our community and creating confusion around the voting rights of formerly incarcerated people. This unconstitutional disenfranchisement particularly impacts communities of color, who are too often excluded from the demo-

ACLU sues County Supervisors, again Continued from page 1

the cross from the county seal. The cross was part of the first official seal, created in 1957, and was featured above a rendering of the Hollywood Bowl. The case went to the Supreme Court. Yaroslavsky, Molina, Burke – all Democrats –

comprised the board majority that voted to remove the seal. Supervisors Mike Antonovich and Don Knabe, both Republicans, voted against removing the cross, and proposed restoring it last year. They argued they were making the seal his-

torically correct, because the San Gabriel Mission depicted on the County seal has a cross. The ACLU lawsuit says the only way to interpret the cross is as a religious symbol, and notes no other such symbols are on the seal.

Bulldogs take a bite out of Apaches By SHEL SEGAL Tyrek Adams scored a game-high 19 points and teammate Ajon Efferson pitched in 14 points as the visiting Pasadena High boys’ basketball team fought off a stubborn squad from Arcadia High, 54-38, on Tuesday in a CIF Southern Section Pacific League game. Leading by just eight points, 34-26, late in the third quarter, the Bulldogs went on an 8-3 run to end the frame and take command of the game. Pasadena then started the fourth quarter with an 8-2 run, building its lead to 48-31, en route to the victory. Pasadena coach Tony Brooks said his team did some things that he liked. “We shared the ball really well,” Brooks said. “I thought that we attacked the zone rather smartly, not rely-

ing on the three too much. Doing those things that it takes to get into the zone, getting those easy lay-ups and dunks. We did a much better job of it in the second half than in the first. I was really please with it.” He added there were some areas where the Bulldogs could improve. “I wasn’t pleased with our effort at times,” he said. “We could have played with more enthusiasm, but it’s a long season.” Arcadia coach Ben Cordeiro said the Apaches gave Pasadena a pretty good luck. “It was a pretty good first half,” he said. “We mixed it up. We played hard. (Pasadena) had some break aways. They scored on those. They took care of the ball and they scored when they had the opportunities.”

Cordeiro said his team just wasn’t able to attack the paint. “I told the guys at halftime that we couldn’t settle for jumpers,” Cordeiro said. “We had to attack the basket and get to the free throw line and we didn’t do a good job of that. That’s where we got to improve.” With the playoffs approaching, Brooks said his thinks his team is looking pretty poised. “We’re feeling good,” Brooks said. “We’re healthy. (Efferson) was a little bit under the weather today, but other than that we’re going to be healthy and we’re going to be nailing it on all cylinders.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

Last month I went back to Sierra Madre and home. At least I tried to, with my brothers and sister, the four remaining Maloney kids. Sierra Madre's claim on the signs leading into the village is "Home of the World's Largest Wistaria Vine." And it's true--something like 2. all from one vine; We-all •wonder-if-they still serve tea to old ladies who come to enjoy the colorful scene. We plan to meet at the Malt Shop on Baldwin, right next to the Christian Science Reading Room and across the street from Hartman's Pharmacy. Instead of those landmarks from our youth, we now find a slick Shell gas station and Quikie Mart. Still no traffic light in the village, though, probably the Only L.A. suburb without one. We decide to walk up Baldwin from the village, up the long, steep, road which turns out, to be not steep and no more difficult: that an ordinary stroll for us seniors. We pass the Episcopal Church and its arbor: with vine-covered benches

that invited us to "Come, ye, apart, and rest a while." That used to mark the halfway mark up to Alegria Street and home. Grandma Slight's Victorian Gingerbread house on the corner of Laurel Street still manages to stand, but barely. Up ahead is St. Rita's, our parish church, and the four-classroom two-story school we attended from first - eighth grade. We laugh remembering how Sister Mary Richard, brown habit flying, used to chase after Johnny Clark across Baldwin when the first-grader had enough of school and wanted to go home. He never outran her. We pass the church in silence, each remembering private thoughts, satisfied to keep walking rather than try for a quick "visit" that at one time promised "time off' in Purgatory. Now Alegria, 15 East Alegria , is in full view as we pass the school building. 15 East Alegria, Home. But our home is not there! My eyes fill with tears and my sister hugs me. It can't be! What

are those duplexes, those modern looking condos doing on our home ground? We stop walking, speechless, and simply stare. ' I had even sent a postcard addressed to "Owner of 15 E. Alegria House," three weeks beforehand, writing that I'd be visiting and hopeful of a peek inside. My card was never answered. Now I reach into my purse and I finger the black and white photos taken during construction in 1938, photos meant to be a gift. There's my room, right next to the five cement entry stairs, with the front window view of the school. Now it's all gone. It's been only a month since our surprise visit and I’m, ( thoughts still race and a few tears still remind me that I'm ageing, that nothing last forever, that you "can't go home again" but sometimes at night I pretend to walk the familiar rooms of 15 East Alegria and I feel happy and safe and content.

My Valentine

! N E OP

By Eugene R. Webb With my Valentine we don't always agree; But she sure means the world to me. We've been married for over 65 Years; We've had a lot of fun, laughter, and a few tears. Our life is a bowl of cherries with pits along the way; We've stuck together like glue, loving more each day. It was way back in Junior High that we first met; I know for me there has never been any regret. I should tell you I am a human and not a toad; Therefore, everyone knows there's bumps in the road. But my Valentine is very thoughtful, loving, and kind; Not only to me, but always has others on her mind. When I first noticed her, it was the red hair I did see; And I found her to be a people person, just like me. I appreciate my wonderful wife like no other; She's my friend as well as an excellent mother. We both count our blessings that money can't

buy; Loving life, God, and family is for us a big high. We're happy living in the golden age, one day at a time; Looking forward to a free dinner with my Valentine. I'm so grateful that cupid shot his arrow in my heart; And that Aileen and I took the vow to never part. I love my wife more today than even yesterday; We'll be together until the man above has his way.

Gift Ideas from the Heart I found the love of my life in another country

Since I was a little girl, in Colombia where I was born, my grandma used to tell me that there is a person for any one of us, the love of our life and someday I would

find him. Well, in 1997, when I was 20 years old, and I was in my first year of college in Colombia, I decided to go back to a military base where I had lived as a child. My dad

is a Colombian Air Force Veteran, so I expended most of my childhood and teenage years living in different places, even in America. It was the spring

break and for some weird reason I decided to go back to that place, I had the feeling that something special was going to happen. So, I traveled for a few hours with my siblings and I arrived to the military base called Apiay in a city called Villavicencio in Colombia. When I got there, I was able to get in the base and I went for a walk. While I was walking through the base, I saw this young looking white boy, with thick eyebrows and brown hair. I thought to myself that man is gorgeous. Later, I saw him with a group of people barbecuing, I immediately assumed they were Americans and I asked them some stuff in English, he realized I spoke English and smiled. Later he came to me, introduced himself and we became friends, I left the base and I promised I would come back again, I came back two days later, he was waiting for me, we kissed and talk for hours

CST# 2034468-40

about our lives and the future. He was in the USA military and I was in college. Later I had to leave to go back go to college, I didn’t want to leave him, but I thought it was pointless to stay and to get to know better a man that was not going to stay in Colombia. I remember the last thing I told him, was I never going to see you again, and he said to never said never, time is unpredictable. While we were together, he gave me a paper with his name and a Mountain Dew soda. I kept the paper and the soda can for years. As matter of fact, after 17 years, I still have them. A few years later, I decided to look for him. I never forget him. In fact, he made me feel so special that I decided that I was going to find him. After 3 years of looking on the Internet, I found him on line, I sent him and E mail, telling who I was, he remembered me but he was married. It broke my heart when I found out, and I decided to move on. However, when the September 11 attacks happen, I wrote him back to wish him good luck in case, he was going to be deployed in Afghanistan. I was worried about a married man I hadn’t seen in years. I was living in Colombia, thousands of miles away from him, but I was scared that something could happen to him. He wrote me back and asked me to not write him back again. So, I did. But a year later, I checked my e-mail and found an e-mail from him with the subject: Hi, can

we talk? I read the e-mail and he told me that he had gotten a divorce and wanted to know me better. I was thrilled. I knew it was destiny. I felt in my heart that he was the person for me. We started an online relationship. I remember people used to laugh of me, but I didn’t care. We communicated through phone calls, chats, messaging, etc. Later he came to see me and met my parents. He wanted me to leave Colombia to be with him but my dad told me that he wanted to meet him first. So, he met my family, and told my parents we wanted to get married. We had already started the process for a visa, but because of some issues, and my Colombian nationality, the fiancé visa application was denied after waiting for a year. So, we decided to get married. We got married on May 29 of 2004, but again I had to wait another year to be with him. It was so painful to be away from each other. I remember how I hated to go to airport with him to say good bye. I still get tears in my eyes, every time I remember. In May 13 of 2005, a year after we got married, I arrived to Michigan to be with the Love of My Life. I left everything I ever knew, my family, my friends, and my life…I started a new life in America and I have never been happier, I have been living in Michigan for almost 9 years and I have two children. I believe we are predestined to be with a person, the love of our life. Liliana Ospina-Herbstreith

Gift Ideas from the Heart It's never too late

A Mother's Love Story

By Lida Bushloper

By Megan Giles

I started going to lunch at the Sierra Madre Senior Center after I retired. I was working on my first book of poetry and just needed a convenient, healthy meal. I didn’t go for the social aspects, as I was focused on my work. But of course everyone was very nice. There were single ladies, single men, and several married couples. I usually sat at one congenial table, but one day there was no room and I moved to another table. I ended up sitting next to Bill Robinson. He had lost his wife of 60 years several years previously, but I never gave it another thought. To me he was just one of the regulars at the table. After several weeks of pleasant chats, you could have knocked me over with a feather when he asked me to dinner. Of course, I said “No.” I had been divorced a long time, but right then my book was the only thing I cared about. I was not interested in being distracted by any kind of new relationship. Besides, I didn’t like him. Hey, I’m not telling you anything he doesn’t already know! But my neighbor, who had met him, kept pushing me to go out with him. “Just try it once,” she said, “you don’t have to go again if you don’t have a good time.” I wasn’t convinced, but Bill was persistent. He seemed more amused than hurt by my refusals. He kept asking me to dinner and I kept saying “no.” I kept saying “no” until finally he whipped up a batch of lasagna in his kitchen

and brought me some in Tupperware. I guess he figured if I wouldn’t go to dinner with him, he would just have to bring dinner to me! After a few months, after he’d frequently made me laugh out loud, after I’d begun to see how intelligent, good-natured and decent he was, after he spent all his time showing me how interested he was in me and my work, I finally agreed to go out for coffee. It stayed at the coffee level for another few months. Still, more and more I found myself looking forward to seeing him. We talked for hours. A few actual dates followed. We spent a delightful Easter, soaring in gliders over the desert. When he took a solo trip to Italy, I was surprised at how much I missed him. By the time he returned, I realized I was in love. Finally, the book was at the printer, and he took me out to celebrate. For a few weeks, we went out to dinner every night, while my kitchen was being remodeled. This may have been more than he had in mind when he made that first offer. Since he had helped plan and supervise the renovations, my home soon felt like it was as much his as mine. He moved in that fall. As we all know, relationships are always moving in one direction or the other, and ours moved the right way. We were married last May at my sister’s farm in Florida. We still eat lunch at the Senior Center most days, only now as newlyweds!

Come February 14, 2014, I will have been truly, madly, and deeply head over heels in love for exactly 1,564 days, 13 hours and 9 minutes. It’s easy to remember such details like this when “the one” has finally come into your life. Details like our first movie date (Pirates of the Caribbean 4), our first Christmas ( I went traditional and gave him pajamas as one of his gifts), the first time he told me he loved me (even if it was almost two years after the first time I told him). When you have found “the one”, every memory is a fabulous detail in the book of life. They say falling in love happens when you least expect it. That it happens for a reason. It happens when you need it most. When you fall in love, you truly have let yourself be open and vulnerable. Love can be tricky; it is a “decision to have a piece of your heart walk around outside of your body.”

I used to fall asleep at night dreaming of what the love of my life would be like... Would he be smart, kind, loving? Would he be tall, athletic, and handsome? Would he make me proud every day to call him mine? Would I make him proud every day? Will he wipe away my tears? Would I be tough enough to wipe away his? When he disappoints me, will I be forgiving enough to accept him for everything he is, and everything i know he can be? When he gets angry, will I be able to calm him? When he is hurt will I be able to easily listen to all of his pain? When he doesn’t make the team, will I be poised enough to tell him Michael Jordan got cut from high school basketball as well? Will I remember to give him all the advice that my parents and grandmother gave me? Most importantly, when he falls in love and celebrates his first Valentine’s day with someone else, will I be strong enough

to be happy for him? Will I be selfless enough to let him start his own traditions? Going to lunch and the Long Beach Aquarium with your mom every year can only be so cool, for so long, re-

ally.

Happy 5th Valentine’s day, my sweet blonde hair, blue eyed, Broderick. My heart, my soul, my son. You will forever be my most favorite Valentine.

New no-cut, no-sew technique will bring your gum line to its normal position in one short appointment. No gum grafting. Quick healing. Dr. John Chao has announced a groundbreaking patented procedure based on a knife-less, stitch-free and relatively pain-free method for repairing receding gums, called the Pinhole Surgical Technique® (PST®). Since there is no cutting or stitching, patients can expect virtually no pain and practically instant cosmetic improvement with almost no sign anything has been done. PST is a dramatic improvement to the standard, more invasive and painful graft method which requires grafted gum from the roof of the mouth to the

teeth. PST is considered by many experts to be a grounding-breaking discovery in the field of dentistry. Dr. Chao was recently granted a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Concurrently, a 33-month study undertaken by Dr. Chao has been published by The International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry, a high-impact, peer-review journal that has long-established international acclaim. *Patent No. ___US 8,007,278,B2___, Patent No. __US 8,202,092B2___

This year’s Rose Bowl champions Michigan State went home with the trophy, but the real winners were Canadian teen Brendan, 16, who is fighting leukemia, and Illinois teen Jacob, 18, who is battling brain tumors. Both brave teens wished to go to the 100th Rose Bowl Game with their families, so Wells Fargo teamed up with Make-AWish to make it happen. But we didn’t stop there. The teens got to go to the game and the parade, and they even rode down Colorado Boulevard on the opening banner float, appropriately themed “Dreams Come True.”

Wells Fargo is proud to support Make-A-Wish.

Flag retirement and dignified disposal ceremony - Feb. 17

2

This interpretive guide to the Monrovia Hillside Wilderness Preserve was produced to educate the citizens of Monrovia on the value of this special resource. Whatever need the preserve fills for you, hopefully, someday you will want to know more about this ecosystem. This pamphlet is intended to be an introduction to the life in the preserve. I am sure readers will be overwhelmed by the amount of information contained herein. However, let me assure you that contributors who have written these essays started out just like you, having more desire than knowledge. Only through time, observation, and study did they achieve their current status. You will find at the end of this pamphlet a list of reference materials we recommend for additional study. For those individuals wishing to learn more about this resource, we suggest starting with botany and plant identification. Beginning with the plants is logical since the plants are the foundation for all other life, and they are the most accessible. If you set a goal of a number of plant identifications at each visit, it won’t be long before you learn the plant communities. From there you can graduate to birds, insects, and or reptiles.

On President’s Day Monday, February 17 at 5:00 PM Arcadia-Monrovia Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2070 & Girl Scout Gold Star Candidate Vienna Murillo ask you to bring your old, tattered U.S. Flags for dignified disposal during a special ceremony on the corner of Chestnut & Magnolia, in Monrovia. -Photo by Terry Miller

Foothill extension light rail project from Pasadena to Azusa surpasses 50% completion Award-winning Measure R light rail project remains on-schedule and on-budget The Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority (Construction Authority) announced Wednesday Azusa is now more than halfway to project completion. When completed, the nearly $1 billion Measure R project will include six new light rail stations with intermodal parking facilities in the cities of Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and Azusa; two dozen new and rebuilt bridge structures; 14 at-grade street crossings; 3.6-miles of relocated freight track within a shared corridor with BNSF Railway; and a 24-acre, $265 million Operations Campus to house up to 84 light rail vehicles. “We were the first Measure R rail project to break ground, and we have stayed on-schedule and on-budget since we began work in 2010,” commented Construction Authority CEO

Habib F. Balian on the milestone. “We still have a significant way to go to substantial completion, but the progress already made provides the confidence that we will be able to meet our schedule and deliver this regionally significant project on time and on budget.” All three design-build projects have been awarded for the project: (1) the $18.6 million Gold Line Bridge to Skanska USA; (2) the $486 million Pasadena to Azusa Alignment to Foothill Transit Constructors – a Kiewit-Parsons Joint Ventura (FTC); and (3) the $48.7 million Intermodal Parking and Enhancements to Webcor. The Gold Line Bridge was completed on time and on budget in late 2012, and was recognized in 2013 with five prestigious industry awards for its design and construction. The largest contract –

the $486 million Pasadena to Azusa Alignment – is being designed and built by FTC, and is also on-schedule and on-budget. Since work began in early 2012, FTC has utilized nearly 500,000 work hours on the project and has now surpassed 50% completion. To date, eight at-grade street crossings, 15 bridge structures, 40% of the Operations Campus, and 70% of the utility work has been completed. The freight track between San Gabriel Ave in Azusa and the Glendora city border has been fully realigned to its new position south of the future light rail tracks, more than half of the Overhead Catenary System foundations have been put in place, and light rail track is starting to be installed. Importantly, of the nearly half million work hours completed, none have been lost due to injury. “The excitement is

building, as it becomes more and more apparent that the Gold Line will soon be arriving in these corridor cities,” added Balian. “As each bridge is completed, station canopy installed, or at-grade crossing re-opened following installation of rail improvements, our progress is evident to the community and to our city officials. We appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation as we build this project.” Just 18 months from now, the Alignment and Parking contracts will be completed. The Construction Authority anticipates having the Operations Campus ready for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) in March 2015, and the remainder of the project turned over to Metro in September 2015 for testing and pre-revenue service. Metro will decide when the project opens for passenger service. “I am extremely impressed as I watch the Gold Line being built in Azusa. Crews are nearly complete with the enormous undertaking of moving miles of freight track into its new position; while also building or rebuilding nine rail bridges and completing new street crossings across the city. Work has recently begun on our two future stations, and soundwalls are now

under construction along the length of the rail corridor. I am confident that the project is more than halfway complete in our city, and I applaud the Construction Authority and their contractor for a remarkably smooth job so far. Keep up the good work.” - Mayor Joseph Rocha, City of Azusa “Monrovia residents are patiently accepting the challenges brought by construction, because we all eagerly anticipate the Gold Line arriving in our city. The excitement is certainly building, especially now that we see the Monrovia station and parking facility starting to take shape. Our city continues to move forward on the plans for our Station Square development, including the largest public works project in our history that will be built up literally around the Monrovia Gold Line station.” - Mayor Mary Ann Lutz, City of Monrovia “Construction of the Gold Line has gone very well in Arcadia, since the project broke ground at Newcastle Park in June 2010. The Gold Line Bridge over the eastbound I-210 Freeway has won awards for its’ unique design and engineering, and the three other rail bridges in the city are also quite impressive. The Construction Authority and their contractor

have done an excellent job making sure that the light rail project fits aesthetically into our city so well that I believe it is going to feel like the train never left Arcadia.” - Mayor Mickey Segal, City of Arcadia "The 50% completion of the Gold Line to Duarte marks a triumphant shift in transit options for Duarte residents. We look forward to 100% completion when we can ride the Gold Line into Pasadena and LA. The canopy structures are already installed at our beautiful station, and light rail track is being laid just a few hundred feet to the east. I look forward to celebrating the completion of the Duarte/City of Hope station just a few short months from now." - Mayor Liz Reilly, City of Duarte “I have watched the Gold Line construction throughout the 11.5-mile corridor over the last year. The work is moving quickly and is already having an impact on the area. With so many workers coming in and out of Irwindale daily, I believe that reaching 50% helps them realize that help is truly on its way. Soon they will be able to utilize the new rail line to get to and from work, and allow our city to grow in new and more sustainable ways.” - Mayor Mark A. Breceda, City of Irwindale

LeVeque Construction of Arcadia receives 'Best of Houzz 2014 Award' LeVeque Construction of Arcadia, CA has been awarded “Best Of Houzz” by Houzz, the leading platform for home remodeling and design. The brothers Jim and Anthony LeVeque were humbled by the news. The 26-year home remodeling and construction firm founded by Jim and Anthony LeVeque, both graduates of La Salle High School in Pasadena and members of St. Rita Parish of Sierra Madre, CA was chosen by the more than 16 million monthly users that comprise the Houzz community. The Best Of Houzz award is given in two categories: Customer Satisfaction and Design. Customer Satisfaction honors are determined by a variety of factors, including the number and quality of client reviews a professional received in 2013. Design award winners’ work was the most popular among the more than 16 million monthly users on Houzz, known as “Houzzers,” who saved more than 230 million professional images of home interiors and

exteriors to their personal ideabooks via the Houzz site, iPad/iPhone app and Android app. Winners will receive a “Best Of Houzz 2014” badge on their profiles, showing the Houzz community their commitment to excellence. These badges help homeowners identify popular and top-rated home professionals in every metro area on Houzz. "We have always found the LeVeques professional in their craft and willing to go the extra mile in design and building skills," remarked Joanne Harabedian, Principal of St. Rita School and parish. With Houzz, homeowners can identify not only the top-rated professionals like LeVeque Construction, but also those whose work matches their own aspirations for their home. Homeowners can also evaluate professionals by contacting them directly on the Houzz platform, asking questions about their work and reviewing their responses to questions from others in the Houzz community.

YouTube video surfaces slamming Alhambra USD By Shel Segal A former Monterey Park elementary school student has posted a short video on the Internet site YouTube and is attacking the Alhambra Unified School District after the board revoked her and her siblings’ permit to go to Monterey Highlands Elementary School, which is located outside the students’ home district, according to a published report. The 11-minute video was posted by eighth grader Maia Wa – a Los Angeles resident – just two weeks after an Internet video went viral and led to the resignation of an assistant principal, according to the report. Wu said in the video the that the revoking of the permit is in retaliation for the family’s opposition to the district constructing a fence at the school over the summer, according to the report. “Monterey Highlands and the Alhambra Unified School District are obsessed with control and are

no longer thinking about students when they make their choices,” Wu said in the video. “I have a vision of a school that will embrace student voice and student participation in civic matters. I want to learn in an environment that welcomes freethinkers, opposing viewpoints and values the democratic process.” There had been no gate surrounding the school for nearly 50 years, according to the report. However, recent events – such as trespassers and the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. – had worried administrators about having a campus with no fence, according to the report. Since posting a petition on change.org a few days ago, it has received more than 16,000 views and more than 500 signatures on the students’ seeking their reinstatement in the district, according to the report. Superintendent Laura Tellez-Gagliano said it did not retaliate against the

Wus in denying the transfer permit,” according to the report. The school board “denies that it retaliated or that the transfer permits were inappropriately revoked. … The district understands the disruption revoking a transfer permit can cause and, therefore, takes such action seriously,” TellezGagliano said in a press release. “The District firmly believes that this decision is in the best interests of all involved and are confident that the students will continue to receive an excellent education in their home district.” Wu posted the video four days after a 28-yearold woman alleged a female Alhambra High School administrator sexually assaulted her when the administrator worked as a coach in Chemawa Middle School in Riverside, according to the report. AUSD revoked the Wu’s permits on Jan. 15 based on their “unwillingness to cooperate with

school officials and abide by district policies and procedures,” a revocation letter said. The Wus appealed the decision but lost. All three children were dismissed from Monterey Highlands effective Jan. 31, according to the report. Wu said her family’s relationship with the district became rocky after sheled a protest against a gate being built around her school. Wu spoke at a June 25 school board meeting, where she said “students are in fear because fear is how our school is run.” Although an appeal decision letter dated Jan. 29 indicated the Wu children had to seek an education elsewhere, the Wus have continued their fight. Sarah Wu, Maia’s mother, said she has retained an attorney. Tellez-Gagliano declined to say if the petition would have any effect on the district’s decision-making process.

POLICE BLOTTERS Arcadia PD

Sunday, February 2: Just before 1:41 a.m., an officer made consensual contact with a subject and discovered he had a suspended license. Shortly after, the officer noticed the same subject driving a vehicle and conducted a traffic stop in the area of Clark Street and Kardashian Avenue. The 44-year-old White male was arrested and transported to the Arcadia City Jail for booking. At about 9:47 p.m., officers working Super Bowl DUI Saturation Patrol observed a stalled vehicle on eastbound Live Oak Avenue at Second Avenue with no headlights on. An investigation revealed the driver was under the influence of alcohol and collided with a tree. The 46-year-old Black male was arrested and transported to the Arcadia City Jail for booking. Monday, February 3: Around 3:00 p.m., an officer was dispatched to a residence in the 1800 block of South Third Avenue regarding a theft report.

At approximately 5:17 p.m., an officer observed a vehicle speeding in the area of Old Ranch Road and Huntington Drive.

The officer attempted a traffic stop; however, the vehicle fled and a pursuit continued until the vehicle crashed into a house in the 300 block of California Boulevard in Pasadena.

At approximately 3:31 p.m., officers were dispatched to a residence in the 400 block of Sharon Road regarding an attempted residential burglary. The victims were watching TV in their den when they observed two suspects tampering with their window in attempt to get inside. Officers arrived on scene and established a perimeter of the area as both suspects fled on foot. One suspect, a 24-year-old Black male, was located and arrested in a backyard in the 400 block of West Lemon Avenue. The second suspect, a 21-year-old Black male, was located inside a residence in the 500 block of Sharon Road where he was hiding underneath a bed. Both suspects were transported to the Arcadia City Jail for booking. Around 9:50 p.m., an officer was dispatched to CVS Pharmacy, 9952 Las Tunas Drive, regarding a theft report. The suspect concealed beer inside his jacket and exited the store without making payment. A records check revealed the subject had three prior theft arrests.

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.

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.

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 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, you may call Priority Posting and Publishing at 714-573-1965 for information regarding the Trustee's Sale or visit the Internet Web site address listed below for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, CA01000300-13.

this case, and will continue to do so. Los Angeles County Sheriff John Scott said, “As I stated when I took office last week, my number one priority is to ensure that the Department continues the substantial progress it has made in reforming and improving our jail system and culture. Although today’s indictment should not be taken as a reflection of the outstanding work that the overwhelming majority of deputies perform every day, it does underscore that everyone in this Department should and will be held accountable for their actions. Abuse of authority will not be tolerated.”
