The first transgender student-athlete in the state of California is being allowed to play for the Azusa High School Aztecs this season, according to a published report. The report said that Pat Cordova-Goff, a 17-year-old senior at the school made the team on merit and skills. The student, who identified herself as a girl, is on the school’s cheerleading team and also was a member of the baseball team as a freshman. Cordova-Goff is able to take advantage of new guidelines put out by the California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section, the body that governs prep sports in most of Southern California, according to the report. The new guidelines deal with gender identity

Making a difference, one pet at a time... It takes someone who cares As part of our continuing desire to focus on those in our community who care for unwanted animals, we are highlighting here the work that animal rescue organizations and individuals do in helping homeless pets find homes.

It takes a foster by Darlene Papa | Lifelineforpets.org

For small, no-kill rescue organizations, such as Lifeline For Pets, good foster homes are worth their weight in gold! Each year, hundreds of puppies and kittens are born without anyone to take care of them. In addition, dogs and cats needing to be rehomed for various reasons are often turned away due to lack of space at the rescue facility. It is

heartbreaking, knowing that they will likely end up being euthanized or living a horrible existence on the streets. Many can be saved if more folks would volunteer to foster. A foster is someone who agrees to take in an animal on a temporary basis, and gives it love, attention, and care. This is a win-win situation: the animal receives

care and socialization, the foster parent gets their “pet fix,” and the rescue organization gets back an adoptable pet while being able to save more. The usual requirements are that the rescue organization pays for veterinary care, while the foster home pays for food. In addition, the foster should live near the rescue facility and/or the rescue's vet. Take the case of Sasha and her two baby kittens. They were found trying to survive on a high school campus. Lifeline contacted one of our independent rescuers, who was able to trap the little family. The rescuer volunteered to foster them, and Sasha and one of the babies were eventually adopted. The rescuer still has the other kitten. Besides bottle-feeding orphaned puppies and kit-

tens, foster homes are also a purr-fect solution for animals who are older. Many older pets have been raised in a loving home, surrounded by “their people.” Then suddenly, for whatever reasons, they are in a very different, cold facility, with strange people and other animals. They just don't understand what happened. This is very stressful for them, and they often respond with behavior changes and depression. The need for a dedicated foster is great. Take the case of Kayley. Kayley is a gorgeous calico cat. As a kitten, she was found and taken in by a kind young man. Kayley was sweet and loving, and had fun with him and with his roommate's male cat. Then, major changes created very stressful situations, and she was finally given to Life-

line. Because of her fear and depression, she acted out, swatting and hissing, and had to be caged. Lifeline urgently needs an experienced foster, who can give Kayley the security and love she desperately needs, so that she can trust again, and find a permanent home. Foster homes are also the best solutions for pets with special needs: diabetics, orphaned babies, surgery rehabs, special diets, and senior animals. Fostering may be ideal for healthy seniors, workat-home folks, or stable families with calm, gentle children. Take the case of Paco, a tiny 5-pound, 7-year old chihuahua. Poor little guy had some issues, and just couldn't find a home. When the kennel in which he was housed closed, we were able to find Paco

a truly wonderful foster mom. After being in foster over a year, the good news is that a close friend of the foster mom has adopted him! If you can't permanently adopt, but have the time, please consider becoming a foster parent. Check any rescue organization's website for more information. To locate one in your area, google “animal foster homes.” Call and consult with them and they will help match you with the right need. The effort and time you put in will leave you with a wonderful, warm fuzzy feeling that you have helped a precious, deserving animal find a loving, fur-ever home! For more information on fostering Kayley, read her story at www.lifelineforpets.org, and call 626676-9505.

'Big League Dreams' in West Covina

Dorothy's Place Remembering

By Dorothy Denne

After a slow start in the annual USSSA President's Day NIT Tournament, the Pasadena Play Hard Chief bats came alive to combine with outstanding pitching as they stormed to three straight victories and the Silver Bracket 11 and under Championship at Big League Dreams in West Covina. On Sunday, Will Repstad of San Marino pitched a seven-inning completer, striking out 12, as the Chiefs defeated OC Premier, 6-2. Michael Gruppie of Arcadia had three RBIs, including a booming two-run home run at "Dodger Stadium" while Altadena's Nick Gallo added a long bases-empty shot in support of Repstedt's masterful effort on the mound. The tall right-hander scattered

five hits and walked three. On President's Day at "Yankee Stadium", the Chief offense put up 22 runs and 37 hits in two games to win the title. In the semifinals, the Chiefs defeated the Canyon Coyotes, 9-1, behind the combined four-hit pitching of Altadena's Sammy Morales and Kyle Hampton. In the championship game, Gallo was at it again, hitting a grand slam to help secure a 13-1 victory over the La Crescenta Thunder as left-hander Jack Duncan of Altadena turned in another strong pitching performance to earn the title win for Coach Paul Harter's Chiefs. The Chiefs will resume tournament play Memorial Day weekend.

In the mail today I received my copy of the California Retired Teachers Association's newsletter. It has an article telling the CalRTA story. The organization turns 85 this year. It began in 1929 while the country began its struggle with the Great Depression. Also in the article is a list of other interesting facts about 1929. I love reading

things like that. Here is what they had to offer. # Herbert Hoover was President of the United States. # The U.S. population reached 120 million. # The Dow reached a peak of 381.17 on September 3 prior to the slide and eventual Wall Street crash in October. # The cost of a first-class stamp was 2 cents. # Bread cost 10 cents. # Popeye, a comic strip character created by Elzie Crisler Segar, made his debut. # The Academy Awards, popularly known as

the Oscars, were presented for the first time. # The Broadway Melody became the first major musical film of the sound era. # The soft drink 7-up was invented by Charles Leiper Grigg. # The first car radio was made by Motorola. # Sir Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin. # The first public phone booths appeared in London. In case you're wondering--no, I was not here yet. I had not even become a gleam in my daddy's eyes. That didn't come 'til a few years late

Dear Editor: 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% 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 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.

WWII veteran seeking relatives in Rosemead; Can you help?

FEBRUARY nd

22 8:00 PM

Dear Editor: My father, Jay Gruenfeld, is a decorated WWII Veteran, who served in the Army infantry on Luzon Island, Phillippines. He is now 89 years old, and living in the Seattle, WA area. For years, he has tried to find some living relatives of a soldier that served in dad’s platoon: Joe Briones. Joe died in combat. He was married to Cecelia, and they

had several children and the family resided in Rosemead, CA. My father has written several accounts of the platoon, and would very much like to get a copy into the hands of any relatives of Joe. Dad says Joe was a really fine man and great soldier, and his book would be of great interest to his relatives. I am wondering if there is any way we could publish

a short plea to try to find the offspring of Joe and Cecelia. I would not be at all surprised if they still live in the area. Thank you, Mr. Miller. This would be a dream come true for my father. He has located almost everyone from his platoon over the years. Respectfully, Deni Sutherland denisutherland@hotmail.com

Jazz Del Corazon starts fundraising gigs for musicians in need “I truly feel that we need to reach out to help our fellow musicians/singers. A lot of the time, musicians, who follow their passion, and do not have a “day gig” to sustain themselves, struggle and some do not have insurance. We, singers need to come together for each other and help one another. And what better way than using our music and passion to help each other?” says Jackie Gibson, Co-Producer of Jazz Del Corazon Series. Gibson, conceived the idea of helping fellow musician/friends in the community when they were in serious financial need due to life changing events. Collaborating with producer Clifford Bell, they joined forces to create, “Jazz Del Corazon” a new series of shows/ performances of talented artists, creating beautiful music to raise money for fellow musicians and their family members, needing financial assistance. Sort of a mini Jazz Festival…The first show will be on Sunday, February 23 at Red, White and Bluezz, Jazz Club, located at 50 South El Molino Ave, sharing a beautiful courtyard with the famous Pasadena Playhouse. It will be a jazz “brunch to lunch” from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM. For reservations, call (626)7924441. There is a suggested donation. The first recipient is Jerry Monteros, local Pasadena sax and woodwinds player, who recently underwent a heart transplant procedure at Cedars Sinai. Monteros was born in Riverside and his dad was an engineer at Douglas Aircraft – a modest Latino family. Monteros was an Editorial intern at the old Herald Examiner Newspaper. Music was his passion. He and his wife, Marnie, met at

A press release was issued on February 12, 2014, regarding a child annoyance in the city of Rosemead. As a result of the press release, Temple Sheriff’s Station Investigators learned that in early January, an 11-year old male was accosted near Del Mar Avenue and Emerson Place, Rosemead, and the incident went unreported. An investigation was launched

by investigators and it is alleged the suspect attempted to kidnap the 11-year old male from a public sidewalk in January of 2014. On Sunday, February 16, 2014, at approximately10:00 A.M., Temple Sheriff’s Station deputies observed a male matching the identified suspect in the attempted kidnap case. The suspect was walking on the

2700 block of Del Mar Avenue, Rosemead. The suspect was detained, identified, and arrested without incident. The suspect was identified as Bin Zhang (male adult, 44, resident of San Gabriel). He was transported to Temple Sheriff’s Station where he was booked on Attempt Kidnapping charges, and is currently being held in lieu of $100,000.00 bail.

The Sycamores, where they both worked as counselors. Monteros had been in and out of hospitals with his heart condition at least 47 times. When they wanted to marry, the doctors felt that he could not take any kind of journey. They wanted to marry in Las Vegas. So they brought Las Vegas to the hospital. They had an Elvis impersonator perform the ceremony, and all of the doctors and nurses there were witnesses and audience. It almost did not happen, when the security at the hospital detained the Elvis, because they thought he was some kind of crack pot… One might say that Elvis had trouble GETTING into the building. Last January doctors discovered he had an enlarged heart and Monteros had to quit teaching. He had spent a lot of time performing with his group, “Watercolors”, in

the Pasadena area. One of their favorite places to play is the Novel Café in Pasadena. “Watercolors” will be joining them Sunday, along with Dolores Scozzesi, Quinn Johnson, Lauren White, Mitch Ellis, Pierre Chambers, & Lorainna Marro. Steve Rawlins is the musical director. Monteros was in denial when the doctors first told him he needed a heart transplant… But soon, his health began to decline and he realized he needed to accept the fact he needed a new heart or die… When Jackie Gibson went to see Monteros several weeks ago, they talked about the fundraiser and it brought such a smile to his eyes. Gibson asked him what was the first thing he wanted to do when he got home from the hospital, and he said, “Start practicing!!” Music doth heal…

California ban on concealed weapons overturned by court According to a report by the Associated Press on Thursday, a divided federal appeals court struck down California’s concealed weapons rules, saying they violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said that California is wrong to require

LASD Temple Sheriff's Station detectives arrest attempted kidnapping suspect in Rosemead

applicants to show good cause to receive a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The court ruled that all lawabiding citizens are entitled to carry concealed weapons outside the home for self-defense purposes. The divided three-judge panel disagreed with two other federal appeals courts that have upheld permit rules

similar to California’s. The U.S. Supreme Court often takes cases when federal appeals courts issue conflicting rulings. The Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that law-abiding citizens can keep handguns in the home for self-defense purposes, but didn’t address whether that right extends outside the home.

A new report has been released which reveals 7 costly mistakes homeowners make when selling their home, and a 9 Step System that can help you sell your home fast and for the most amount of money. This industry report shows traditional ways of selling homes have become increasingly less effective

Celebrating Community Sunday • July 21 • 9 AM

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and Commission for Women has selected you as one of the award recipients for 29th Annual “Women of the Year” Awards and Scholarship Luncheon. We are very pleased that Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich submitted your nomination as the Fifth District’s 2014 “Women of the Year”; honoree to our Commission. The Luncheon will be held at the Grand Hall of the Music Center, Monday, March 10, 2014 at 11:30 a.m., located at 135 North Grand Avenue, Los Angeles. Joan Schmidt grew up in Westfield, New Jersey with parents, Aldo and Julia, siblings, Elaine, Peter and Mary. She attended parochial schools there, and Mt. St. Mary College, Newburgh New York. There she met and married Army Staff Sergeant Richard Schmidt. They lived abroad five years; “Korea brought more appreciation of our great country and freedoms most take for granted,” Schmidt told the Commission. In 1984, Joan and family relocated to (unincorporated) Monrovia. In 1985, she began her twenty-five year teaching career at An-

nunciation, Arcadia. In 1993, problems arose in Duarte. A community meeting brought mention of forming a Town Council. With encouragement from Captain Mirabella, Joan joined Dave Hall and Yvonne Bullock, (current Town Council Members) on the Formation Committee and was elected to the newly-formed M.A.D. Town Council in June, 1993. Her goal was to bring the Community together and acquaint residents with the Council and county programs. To attain that goal she began writing for local papers-the Gem City News, Monrovia/ Arcadia Weekly and the San Gabriel Examiner. Joan served on the Duarte Habitat for Humanity Selection Team and Duarte Education Foundation. During her tenure, she received awards from Assemblyman Mountjoy, Supervisor Antonovich, City of Duarte, LA County Parks and Recreation Department, Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol. Teaching fulltime, writing and being on the Council took its toll. After ten years, Joan stepped down from the Council and stopped writing.

After retiring from teaching, Joan felt something was missing. County residents still were unaware of many services and didn’t know what was happening in the area, so she resumed writing for the Mountain View News. Joan is on the Board of the Friends of Duarte and Live Oak Libraries and resides in Monrovia with husband Bob Clayton and chil-

dren Karen and Richard. For the past 28 years, the Commission has recognized women, who have worked to bring about social and economic change, served as outstanding role models for women, worked on behalf of women’s issues or demonstrated outstanding performance within their professions to further advocate women’s rights.

participation and came into effect this past fall. Another move in Cordova-Goff’s favor was the passing of a new state law that took effect the first of year and is designed to “give all students a full range of opportunity.” Cordova-Goff, who stands 5-foot-8, has seen

herself as a girl for many years, according to the report. However, she said she has no current plans to undergo any “medical treatments or procedures” to deal with the issue of being transgender. She added it has taken her some time to get used to using the pronoun “she”

when talking about herself, the report said. It has also taken time to get used to using the name “Pat,” the report said. While several local coaches in the east San Gabriel Valley publicly stated their support for Cordova-Goff, saying the fact that she is transgender

does not affect how they will play against her, a few have muttered privately, wondering if Cordova-Goff truly made the team on merit, according to the report. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com. Follow him via Twitter @ segallanded.)

Benetone Hillin Entertainment introduces a Stranger in Paradise at Arena cinema Colin Egglesfield, Stuart Townsend and Oscar Nominated Catalina Sandino Moreno Starrer marks debut theatrical release from newly formed global production and servicing company

Benetone Hillin Entertainment (BHE), a merging of Hillin Entertainment USA and Benetone Films, the largest foreign film production company in Thailand, is poised to become a onestop-shop for everything production related in the United States and Asia. The newly formed international production and servicing company is a strategic partnering of Santa Monica based Daemon Hillin who serves as President of Production and oversees the domestic arm of the company and brothers Rachvin and Kulthep Narula who remain on site in Thailand. Committed to producing beautifully shot, high quality independent films of all genres and budgets, BHE is bursting onto the scene with a burgeoning slate of projects in various stages of production. February 1420, local movie-goers can catch the company’s action love story A Stranger In Paradise at the Arena Cinema in Hollywood. The film, which was directed by Corrado Boccia and stars Colin Egglesfield (Something Borrowed), Stuart Townsend (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) and Oscar nominated Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace), is playing in select theaters throughout the country. The Thai mafia-esque thriller follows the plight of a man, who on the verge of making partner, has his life turned upside down when the SEC investigates the head of his multibilliondollar hedge fund for insider

trading. Forced into a welltimed not-wanted “vacation” he finds himself in Bangkok with a price on his head, a morally ambiguous brother who is knee deep into the Thai mafia, and a propensity for getting shot at. Unfortunately the only way out is to give up information he doesn’t know he has. Benetone Hillin Entertainment also recently made news by signing multiple Emmy Award winning writer Gordon Bressack (Animaniacs, Pinky and The Brain, WordGirl) on Oliver Storm and the Curse of Sinbad’s Treasure. Bressack who is writing the live action feature film along with son James Cullen Bressack will also executive produce with Rajpal Narula. On the post-production front, the busy company is finishing Pernicious, a gory fest film, starring Emmynominated Emily O’Brien (Young and the Restless), Ciara Hanna (Power Rangers) and Jackie Moore (100 Ghost Street). Both A Stranger In Paradise and Pernicious were shot in Thailand and utilized the company’s extensive global resources and relationships. “Benetone Hillin Entertainment is a strategic partnership born from a shared passion for producing beautifully shot, high quality independent films of all genres and budgets,” said Santa Monica-based Hillin, who serves as President of Production and oversees the domestic arm of the company. Partners Rachvin and Kulthep Narula of

Benetone Films remain on site in Thailand, where they have line produced over 75 feature films and 600 television commercials over the last decade. “We are thrilled to extend our successful creative collaboration beyond our own productions and strive to become a one-stopshop for everything production related in the United States and Asia including visas, permits, locations and local crew members.” “Our reach and relationships span the world with an emphasis on the United States and Southeast Asia which includes 11 countries that reach from India to China,” added the Narula brothers who have cemented their positions as leaders of filming in the scenic region, earning a ranking by Thailand Film Commis-

Everyday is an open house:

sion as the premiere Production Company in Thailand for the past five years in a row. “We look forward to sharing our areas of expertise to further promote filmmaking in these affordable and naturally beautifully locations. In turn, we are proud to refer filmmakers in Southeast Asia wanting to shoot in the United States to the capable hands of our partner Daemon Hillin.” Prior to forming Benetone Hillin Entertainment, Hillin, who specializes in film financing, GAP financing and film production, produced numerous films including Killing Winston Jones starring Oscar Winner Richard Dreyfuss, Danny Glover, Danny Masterson and Jon Heder and Auteurdirected by Cameron Romero.

The Social Whirl Sex and the City Zoo

Kim Coles stars in “Oh, But Wait There's More” at Fremont Center Theatre; Three performances only starting February 21 This zany and at times irreverent solo show chronicles the ebb and flow of Kim’s show biz career with titillating inside Hollywood anecdotes and personal stories from her amazing world. (Ms. Coles is well-known as a TV star, with series regular roles on “Living Single,” “In Living Color,” “The Geena Davis Show,” and many other appearances on series on series and in films.)

Nord

It was ADULTS ONLY for “Sex and the City Zoo”, and extraordinary Valentine’s Day event celebrating romance in the animal kingdom presented by the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA) on February 8. The lighthearted affair began with a reception featuring tempting desserts, alluring wines, a performance by recording artist, musician

and entertainer Whitney Hall and “animal walk-abouts,” which included chats with keepers and the chance for an up-close visit with an Angolian python and a great horned owl. The heart of the evening was a provocative presentation about animal mating, dating and cohabitating by Michael Dee, former Los Angeles Zoo general curator, who offered insights

about relationships in the animal kingdom. Proceeds from the fifth annual event, generously sponsored by Whole Foods Market West Hollywood, support GLAZA, which funds plant and animal exhibits, species conservation, capital projects, education and community outreach, and many other programs at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

The City of El Monte invites the community to a design workshop to help the City develop a vision for the Downtown District, which includes the Valley Mall. This workshop will give the community a chance to meet the design team and explore big picture ideas and design concepts for El Monte’s Downtown District, including the idea of a revitalized Main Street. Your participation is invaluable and we look forward to hearing from you. The City was recently

awarded a planning grant from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority to create a comprehensive land use and design plan along Valley Mall and to identify transit-oriented development opportunities within and around the Downtown District. The workshop is part of a year-long planning process to achieve the City’s goals to create a “sense of place” for the Downtown District, while providing safe pedestrian connections to nearby transit and mixed-use de-

velopment opportunities. The result of this process will be the presentation of a proposed Specific & Master Plan for the Downtown District to the City Council for adoption. For more information and to confirm your attendance, please contact Sal Lopez, Consulting Project Manager at (626) 799-8011 or by e-mail at sal@ebaplanning.com.

Dog Haus introduces Michael Brown as culinary director as it prepares for growth spurt Veteran chef to lead the gourmet hot dog concept's pack With 11 franchises sold and 51 planned locations on deck to begin opening in the second quarter of this year, Dog Haus is expanding its culinary team with the addition of esteemed Chef Michael Brown as the SoCal gourmet hot dog concept’s Culinary Director. Brown, who previously helmed kitchens for Google, Nike, Wolfgang Puck Worldwide, Inc., and sharpened his knives at Patina Restaurant Group and Red O in Los Angeles, brings 20 years of experience to the table, and will be charged with leading the Dog Haus culinary pack as the three-year-old concept preps for an explosive period of growth. “I’m an artist at heart and was originally drawn to a career in the kitchen because of the inherent creativity involved in the profession,” says Brown. “I’m stoked to join a team that shares my passion for taking high quality ingredients and putting them together in unexpected ways, and look forward to taking this journey with Dog Haus.” While providing inspiration for new dish launches and seasonal and limited time offers, Brown will also bring essential managerial skills to his role overseeing menu execution across all current and future Dog Haus restaurants. Most recently, Brown was an Executive Chef for the Nike World Headquarters’ food service operation that

fed over 8,000 employees for breakfast and lunch daily, drawing upon his fine-dining background from his time at acclaimed restaurants like Red O and Patina Restaurant Group in Los Angeles, where he originally started his career, to bring precision to the menu in both its conception and execution. “Michael’s creativity and leadership skills in the kitchen will be instrumental during this pivotal period for us,” Adds Partner Hagop Giragossian, who spearheaded the original menu for Dog Haus and continues to provide culinary leadership. “With his experience running major operations at Google, Cisco and Nike, as well as positions at top restaurants, he’s the perfect person to ensure our brand promise of quality and creativity as we grow beyond our hometown.” This past fall, Dog Haus temporarily brought Bruce Kalman, a James Beard-nominee (“Best Rising Chef”), on board to consult and lead the charge on a menu revamp, which rolled out at all three Dog Haus locations in November. As Dog Haus plans for expansion beyond its restaurants in Pasadena, Old Pasadena and Alhambra, Michael Brown has been welcomed to the team to oversee that transition. He’ll additionally be leading the charge on new menu additions to be unveiled in the spring.

Santa Anita Park, with the help of a large number of its fans, will attempt to etch its name in the Guinness Book of World Records as it hosts its first-ever “Largest Beer Tasting” event at 12 noon on Saturday, Feb. 22, on the track’s Grandstand apron. The record endeavor, which will be staged in an enclosed area on the track’s Grandstand apron, will be conducted with the help of a certified cicerone from Stone Brewing Company. Santa Anita is hoping to attract approximately 1,000 beer-tasting participants, which would far exceed the existing Guinness World Record of 322, which is held by the English-based Oast House. “We are always looking for new ways to engage fans and this is a great example,” said Katie Abbott, Director of Interactive Media at Santa Anita Park. “This event is go-

ing to be a great for us to allow new and existing fans to have fun and be a part of Santa Anita history.” Each participant will be issued a numbered wrist band and will receive a blindtasting of three complimentary beers. The results of the event will be documented through video and photo review and be verified by Guinness World Record officials. “Although our hope is to shatter the current world record, our main goal is to host an out-of-the-box event where all of our guests have an unforgettable experience,” said Nate Newby, Santa Anita Vice President of Marketing. “This is uncharted territory for us, but we think it’s going to be a lot of fun for everyone.” For more information on the 2014 Largest Beer Tasting at Santa Anita, please email santaanitarecordbreaker.com.

City of Monrovia hopes to open Cloverleaf entrance to wilderness this summer We contacted the city of Monrovia for clarification on when all the entrances to the Wilderness Preserve might open. Alexis Bakofsky told Monrovia Weekly that the city hopes to get at least one additional entrance to the Preserve open this summer. “For the Highland entrance, we really can’t esti-

mate when it will open. We are waiting on vegetation to grow back after the Madison Fire and for the mudslide mitigation efforts put in place by LA County Department of Public Works to be removed. For the Cloverleaf entrance, the City’s goal is to have it open this summer,” Alexis Bakofsky said.

AHS Baseball going with youth movement

New screening test found antidepressant Paxil promotes estrogen, breast cancer

By SHEL SEGAL

City of Hope researchers develop test to assess effect of more than 1,500 chemicals on estrogen

The Arcadia High baseball team will be going with a youth movement this season. Arcadia coach Nick Lemas said his team might not have the experience, but that shouldn’t stop them. “We’ll be all right,” Lemas said. “We’re young. We graduated quite a few seniors last year, so we’re trying to fill in those spots. We’ve got some young guys who have stepped up. I feel like we’re going to get better as the season goes on.” But Lemas said doing better than last year’s squad that finished 20-9 might be hard to accomplish. “We were right there in the end,” he said. “We finished fourth in (Pacific League). There were almost four teams tied for first. It was a close race in league and I can definitely see it being a close race this year.” Lemas also said that in the eight-team Pacific

League, anything could happen. “There’s probably five teams that could beat anybody any time,” said Lemas, adding that Burbank, Burroughs, Crescenta Valley and Pasadena all form formidable threats. If the Apaches are to be successful this season, they’ll have to do the fundamentals well, Lemas said. “We’re more of a pitching team,” he said. “We’re probably not going to put up a lot of runs. Games that we’re going to win, we’re going to pitch well and we’re going to play good defense. I think we’re going to get pretty decent pitching. I think it’s a matter of whether we’re going to play catch.” Lemas added he is hoping the bats, though, aren’t hit and miss this season. “Offensively, we might scratch out a few runs here and there,” he said. “There might be games where we do really well offensively.

There might be games that we don’t do really well offensively.” On the mound, Lemas said the Apaches have at least three pitchers going for them – Joey Harmon, Ryan Tuck and Fernando Rosales – in addition to some others who haven’t come to the surface yet. Lemas expects Rosales, who also plays shortshop, and designated hitter Willy Okamoto to lead the team offensively. On Rosales: “He’s one of our leaders on the field and he’s probably going to be one of the guys offensively we look to. On Okamoto: “He’s been swinging the bat really well over the course of the fall, so hopefully he’ll be right in the middle of the order somewhere and he can drive in some runs.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com. Follow him via Twitter @segallanded.)

A team of researchers at City of Hope has developed a screening assay that can quickly assess up to 1,536 compounds’ effect on estrogen activity in the body. The test can also evaluate whether chemicals act as inhibitors of aromatase, an enzyme linked to breast cancer that converts androgen to estrogen. The results verifying this novel screening method— called AroER tri-screen—are published ahead of print online in Toxicological Sciences. The test can screen for more than 1,500 compounds with each run, enabling scientists to rapidly assess and identify the estrogen-disrupting impact of common chemicals. Even everyday chemicals have the potential to increase, or potentially decrease, the risk of breast cancer, researchers say. “Approximately 70 percent of breast cancers are sensitive to estrogen, and exposure to estrogen-disrupting compounds — especially during the critical periods of pregnancy, childhood and adolescence — can have an irreversible impact on stilldeveloping bodies,” said Shiuan Chen, Ph.D., professor

and chair of City of Hope’s Department of Cancer Biology and lead author of the study. “Thus, it makes sense to develop this test, which can assess many chemicals at once, to help us quickly identify which environmental compounds are disrupting estrogen functions.” The screening method uses a microplate, a special plate containing miniature test tubes known as wells. In the wells are specially cultured estrogen-sensitive breast cancer cells treated to detect either estrogen-promoting or estrogen-suppressing properties of chemicals. The researchers collaborated with the Tox-21 program (a national effort to develop methods to screen for hazardous chemicals) to amplify the number of wells in the microplate — from the original 96 to 1,536 — greatly increasing the number of assessments each test can process. In addition to confirming AroER tri-screen’s effectiveness, the researchers found that antifungal medications oxiconazol (Oxistat) and bifonazole (Canespor) exhibited aromatase-inhibiting properties, while the

antidepressant paroxetine (Paxil) acted as an estrogen promoter. “The paroxetine finding helps explain previous studies showing that it reduces tamoxifen therapy’s effectiveness,” Chen said. “And it has implications for patients with estrogen-sensitive breast cancer who are on other medications.” Meanwhile, the oxiconazol and bifonazole findings mean that these drugs may have potential in treating estrogen-sensitive breast cancers by inhibiting aromatase and thus levels of estrogen in the body. Given these promising findings, Chen said that he hopes the AroER tri-screen assay will be be used to assess the estrogen-disrupting properties of more compounds, including medications, environmental pollutants and common household chemicals. The project was supported by the California Breast Cancer Research Program (17UB-8701) with the goal to develop such a screening system to identify environmental chemicals with impact on breast cancer development.

DA Lacey unveils program to help victims of sex trafficking Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey announced today an innovative new diversion program aimed at getting young victims of sex trafficking off the streets and out of harm’s way. Until now, minors between the ages of 12 to 17 who were arrested for sexrelated crimes were deemed juvenile delinquents. Between 2000 and 2010, the Juvenile Division of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office filed 2,188 petitions against minors caught soliciting or loitering for solicitation. Those arrested were processed through juvenile courts with little or no resources devoted to addressing the underlying issues that forced them into prostitution. “We believe that minors who engage in sex for pay are victims not criminals,” District Attorney Lacey said during a news conference.

“We believe that we should help these children, not detain them. For a period of one year, minors who agree to enter the First Step program will receive referral services, such as crisis intervention, sexual assault and mental health counseling, substance abuse treatment, education and other appropriate social services. The District Attorney’s Office has partnered with four nonprofit, communitybased organizations to provide a wide array of social services. Lacey thanked the YWCA Greater Los Angeles, Saving Innocence, the Valley Trauma Center in Van Nuys and the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking for their generous support and willingness to offer programs to help rescue and redirect victims of sex trafficking. “I especially want to thank Faye Washington, president and CEO of the YWCA Greater Los Angeles for its $25,000 contribution,”

Lacey said. “This money will be used to provide services to First Step participants.” At the end of the year, if the minor has successfully completed the program, the arrest that prompted the minor’s entry into program will be cleared. “We understand the enormous challenges these children face in trying to break away from their pimps and abusers,” District Attorney Lacey said. She noted that pimps target vulnerable youth -- runaway and homeless children who may have experienced trouble at home, youth with drug problems, children who have been sexually or physically abused or neglected. “These are the victims who have been robbed of hope at a very young age,” she said. “We want to stand beside these young victims and show them there is a way out if they just take the First Step.”

Hit-and-run victim and amputee to “finish the ride” that almost killed him On Sunday, February 17, 2013, Damian Kevitt was struck by a mini-van while on his bicycle, and dragged close to a quarter-mile down the Interstate 5 Freeway in Los Angeles. The collision resulted over twenty broken bones and the amputation of Kevitt’s right leg. Now, one year later, Kevitt, working with the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC), is returning to his bicycle for a charity ride he organized called Finish the Ride. The event, which will be held on Sunday, April 27, 2014, will raise money for the Challenged Athletes Foundation® (CAF) and LACBC. It aims to raise awareness of Los Angeles’ hit-and-run epidemic. Kevitt has been working closely with the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, California State Assemblyman Mike Gatto, and Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge to organize Finish the Ride, which has grown into a movement to help make the streets of Los Angeles safe and fun for all bicyclists. “The only way I can bring closure to what happened to me is by taking the bad that occurred and turning it into something good – not just for one or two others but for my city of LA,” said Kevitt. Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Los Angeles), who authored legislation last year that increases the statute of limitations on hit-and-runs, and whose staff organized a canvassing effort to catch Kevitt’s assailant, has introduced new legislation this year to increase penalties for hit-andrun offenders. Gatto’s AB 1532 would require automatic license revocation for motorists who flee the scene of any accident involving another person, even if the victim’s injuries are minor. As part of the Finish the Ride movement, Damian Kevitt has created a petition in support of Gatto’s legislation.

At the city level, Councilman LaBonge offered a $25,000 reward from the city of Los Angeles for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who hit Damian Kevitt. Despite the reward, Kevitt’s assailant remains at large. However, with an unbreakable spirit, the support of friends and family, and the help of the Challenged Athletes Foundation, Damian slowly regained his mobility and discovered a whole community of athletes who had overcome their own physical challenges. The mission of the Challenged Athletes Foundation is to provide opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. Their innovative programs provide grant funding to anyone with a physical disability for adaptive sports equipment like racing wheelchairs, handcycles, and running prosthetics as well as training and competition expenses. In addition, CAF’s Operation Rebound Program helps permanently injured vet-

erans and first responders get from the frontline to the finish line. To learn more, log on to www.challengedathletes.org or call 858-866-0959. LA County Bicycle Coalition is a membership based, nonprofit organization working to make all of LA County healthy, safe and fun place to ride a bike. In its outreach efforts, LACBC works with diverse communities to educate, advocate and put on fun rides like Finish the Ride, and it’s signature event the Los Angeles River, to accomplish its mission. To learn more, log on to www.la-bike.org or call(213) 629-2142 Proceeds from Finish the Ride will directly benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation as well as LA County Bicycle Coalition. Finish the Ride will take place at 8:00am on Sunday, April 27, 2014. Cyclists may register for one of three routes that vary in distance from six to twenty-three miles. Early registration is encouraged as registration fees will increase on March 1, 2014. For more information, or to register, visit www.finishtheride.com.

Exterior work includes parking lot improvements, roof replacement and new heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Funding comes from the La Casita Foundation, Pasadena Capital Improvement Project Fund and Residential Impact Fees.

ing’s historic integrity. For questions or additional information regarding the kickoff event, please contact, Yesenia Alvarado at (626) 744-7033 oryalvarado@cityofpasadena.net.

Chaplain assistant supporting Wounded Warrior Mission at Joint Base Andrews hails from Temple City Sgt. 1st Class Bernardo (Bernie) Escarcega talks about his job

-Courtesy Photo

I am the chaplain assistant supporting the Wounded Warrior Mission at Joint Base Andrews. I also provide administration support for the Chaplain Office for the JFHQ-NCR/MDW. I have always liked being a chaplain assistant. I enjoy meeting and helping soldiers and their families. Also, being very close to historic sites, like Arlington National Cemetery, Pentagon, the National Mall and all the dedicated memorials make me realize this is a very unique place. What is your most memorable experience during your time here at JFHQ-NCR/MDW? It would have to be the mission at Joint Base Andrews, welcoming the wounded soldiers coming in from down range. It’s a very eye opening experience. You listed acting as a hobby.

Have you been in anything we may have seen? Honestly, I happened to get into acting by accident. Through networking, I found myself on the TV show Star Trek Voyager. I was on about 22 episodes or the last two seasons of the show. From there, I was able to join the Screen Actors Guild, Actors Equity Association and American Federation and Television and Radio Artists. Since then I have been in several movies, TV shows and theater productions. How did you get into the performing arts? My first job in High School was working in a theater house. I was doing live musical performances and shows. So, since the age of 15 I have been working in entertainment. Gradually, I worked my way from behind

the scenes to in front performing. My first musical production being on stage was "Desert Song" back in 1999 and I have been performing and singing ever since. Is there anything that you have learned in your acting career that has helped you in the military or vice versa? Well, I have to admit that the two go together hand in hand. I always claimed that Drill Sergeants where some of the best actors in the military and in the business. I don't think I would have been able to portray an Ensign in the command group on Star Trek, if it wasn't for my military background. I learned a lot from being in the military and like most life experiences you translate that over to whatever career you chose once you leave the service.

Year of the Horse celebrated in Rosemead

The Caltech - Occidental Concert Band Directed by William Bing Winter Concert Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 7:30 PM Thorne Hall, Occidental College

By SHEL SEGAL It is the year of the horse as the city of Rosemead celebrated the Chinese Lunar New Year at Rosemead Park on Saturday. With the event bouncing around different venues the past few years, it looks like it has found a home at the park on Mission Drive and Encinita Avenue. With the proper name of the festival being “Lunar New Year Chinese American Valentine’s Day Festival,” Janette Vicario, recreation coordinator for the city of Rosemead, said there was much to do at the festival. “There are vendors who have trinket booths,” Vicario said. “There are clothes, toys that they’re selling. We have some game booths for the kids to play. We have some bouncers for the kids to jump in. We have rock climbing. We also have food truck vendors, gourmet food trucks are here. We have great entertainment from all over the community.” And there was a lot to eat, she added.

“You have cupcakes,” she said. “You have barbecue. You have rice balls on fire.” She also said many groups performed for the audience on the main stage. “Throughout the day, we had Chinese performers,” she said. “We had a fashion show. We had hula dancers. We had Rosemead High School flags and banners perform. The community is coming out to perform.” And there were many raffle prizes given away, like a television and a micro-

wave oven, she said. Sandy Bernica, administrative specialist with the city, said she expected somewhere between 3,000 and 5,000 people to attend the festival. “It’s good for the community for the Asian culture to come out and join in everything that’s going on,” Bernica said. Vicario agreed. “I live in the community and the community is coming together,” she said. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

nent local scientists and water managers to discuss fracking and its impacts on California's unique geology, hydrology and environment. This unbiased look at the state of fracturing with cut through the spin and provide real answers to pressing questions about hydraulic fracturing.

Officers arrived on scene and discovered two subjects, a 48-year-old Hispanic male and a 51-year-old White male, stealing lumber from the construction site. As the subjects were being arrested, a Monrovia Home Depot employee was driving by and recognized one of the suspects from a recent burglary.

A mother and her adult daughter engaged in a physical altercation during which the mother sustained a bloody nose and bite marks to her arms. The daughter was determined to be the primary aggressor. The 29-year-old White female was arrested and transported to the Arcadia City Jail for booking. At approximately 10:26 p.m., an officer located a stolen vehicle in the area of Foss Avenue and Live Oak Avenue. The officer attempted a traffic stop; however, the subject fled at a high rate of speed and a pursuit was initiated. The officer was unable to keep up with the vehicle, which was driving in excess of 80 miles per hour.

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.

Copies of the prevailing wages are on file in the Community Development Department and will be made available to any interested party on request. In accordance with the Labor Code, no worker employed upon work under contract to the City shall be paid less than the above referenced prevailing wage rate. Bidders are advised that, as required by federal law, the State has established a statewide overall DBE goal. This Agency federal-aid contract is considered to be part of the statewide overall DBE goal.

Bids are required for the entire work described herein. The successful bidder shall be licensed in accordance with the provisions of the Business and Professions Code and shall possess a Class “A” State Contractor’s License at the time this contract is awarded. This contract is subject to state contract nondiscrimination and compliance requirements pursuant to Government Code, Section 12990.

Attention is directed to the Federal minimum wage rate requirements in these books entitled "Federal Requirements."

The Department will not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the Federal minimum wage determinations. This includes "helper" (or other classifications based on hours of experience) or any other classification not appearing in the Federal wage determinations. Where Federal wage determinations do not contain the State wage rate determination otherwise available for use by the Contractor and subcontractors, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the Federal minimum wage rate, which most closely approximates the duties of the employees in question.

CITY OF SAN GABRIEL SUMMARY OF ORDINANCE NO. 601-C.S. MAKING CHANGES TO THE CITY’S LANDSCAPING AND OPEN SPACE STANDARDS Ordinance No. 601-C.S. amends and deletes existing sections and adds new sections of the San Gabriel Municipal Code in order to implement policies and programs developed under the City’s “Greening the Code” grant from the Southern California Association of Governments Compass Blueprint program. These amendments fall into the following two categories: 1. Landscaping 2. Open space The amendments to the landscaping standards replace and consolidate the existing code sections into a comprehensive landscape section with illustrations. Provisions address landscape design, provide direction for sustainable practices, identify the areas that are required to be landscaped and that count toward required landscaping, and detail the plant materials and irrigation required. The amendments specify what is to be included in a landscape plan, and provide flexibility as long as key principles are achieved. They also establish design principles, including the incorporation of existing vegetation. Specific requirements are provided for planting materials. The amendments include a requirement to provide a 15-foot landscaped buffer along the outer edge of flood channel easements. The amendments to the open space standards change the private open space requirement to a minimum of 40% of total open space provided, enlarge the minimum dimension for patios to 10 feet and balconies to six feet, and allow the Planning Commission to reduce the amount of required on-site open space for projects that enhance or improve existing open spaces. The amendments revise the code sections that establish open space area requirements for multi-family residential districts, to allow for off-site dedication or payment of in-lieu fees as alternatives to providing on-site common open space and modify standards for required open spaces as part of multi-family and mixed use development, to allow community gardens to count toward the required open space area. Ordinance No. 601-C.S. was introduced and given first reading by the San Gabriel City Council on February 18, 2014. The Ordinance will be considered for adoption by the City Council at its regular meeting on March 4, 2014. If adopted, it will become effective April 4, 2014. A copy of the complete text of Ordinance No. 601-C.S. is available in the City Clerk’s Office, San Gabriel City Hall, 425 S. Mission Drive, San Gabriel. Eleanor K.

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.

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, 916-939-0772 for information regarding the trustee`s sale or visit this Internet Web site, www. nationwideposting.com, for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, T.S.# 9462-0494. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder`s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.

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 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.

Camellia Festival Continued from page 1

Pham has written and/ or illustrated over 60 books. Pham has won several awards for her work, and while she claims “awards are not important to her,” she treasures one accolade - the Mock Caldecott - awarded by children for her book “Big Sister, Little Sister” which began as a birthday gift for her older sister, LeChi. The children “genuinely liked it,” said Pham. Pham and her family boarded the second to the last helicopter from the roof of the U.S. Embassy during the fall of Saigon in 1975 when she was 2 years old and eventually settled in Temple City. She attended school at La Rosa, Cloverly, Oak Avenue and graduated from Temple City High School. She marched in the Camellia Parade with the Oak Avenue Drill Team and went to the Camellia Festival nearly every year until college. She graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and worked at DreamWorks Studios as a layout artist where she met her husband, French artist Alex Puvilland. Her books include “God’s Dream,” written by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the New York Times Bestselling series “Freckleface Strawberry,” written by Julianne Moore, “Grace for President” by Kelly DiPucchio, the Alvin Ho Series by Lenore Look

and the award winning “The Boy Who Loved Math” by Deborah Heiligman, to name a few. She is also the illustrator of the Scott O’Dell award-winning “Bo of Ballard Creek”, by Kirkpatrick Hill. In addition, she co-illustrated, with her husband Alex Puvilland, the New York Times Bestseller “Templar,” a 450-page graphic novel written by “Prince of Persia” creator Jordan Mechner. Her books have garnered numerous awards, including the Society of Illustrators Bronze Medal, the Junior Library Guild recipient, Parent’s Magazine, the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio award, among others. This spring she will be releasing her latest self-authored book, “A Piece of Cake”. For more information you can visit LeUyen’s website at LeUyenPham.Com. Pham lives and works in San Francisco . In honor the 70th anniversary celebration the Camellia Festival will include food trucks on Friday, A Tribute to Journey Band on Saturday, and Cold Duck Rock n’ Roll Band on Sunday. There will also be an “All Class Temple City High School Reunion” on Saturday and a “Royal Court” Reunion on Sunday. For more information please contact the Camellia Festival office at 626-2852171 ext. 2350 or nfish@ templecity.us
