Annual Wistaria Festival this Sunday in Sierra Madre The Sierra Madre Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual Wistaria Festival on Sunday, March 16, 2014. The festival first began in the early 20th century, drawing as many as 100,000 people over an extended period of time. Now the vine, which is on private property, is available to the public for viewing only one day a year. In the previous two years, rain has lessened the number of attendees, however, with dry weather forecast, crowds in excess of 10,000 people are expected. Please see page 27

Murphy Murphy was staggering home with a pint of booze in his back pocket when he slipped and fell heavily. Struggling to his feet, he felt something wet running down the back of his leg. "Please, Lord," he implored,"let it be blood!!" Paddy Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking space. Looking up to heaven he said, "Lord take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up me Irish Whiskey!" Miraculously, a parking place appeared. Paddy looked up again and said, "Never mind, I

found one." Father Murphy Father Murphy walks into a pub in Donegal and says to the first man he meets, "Do you want to go to heaven?" The man said , "I do, Father." The priest said, "Then stand there against the wall." Then the priest asked the second man, "Do you want to go to heaven?" "Certainly, Father," was the man's reply. "Then stand over there against the wall," said the priest. Then Father Murphy walked up to O'Toole and said, "Do you want to go to heaven?" O'Toole said, "No I don't, Father." The priest said, "I don't believe this. You mean to tell me that when you die you don't want to go to heaven?" O'Toole said, "Oh, when I die, yes. I thought you were getting a group together to go right now." Gallagher Gallagher opened the morning newspaper and was dumbfounded to read in the obituary column that he had died. He quickly phoned his best friend, Finney. "Did you see the paper?" asked Gallagher. "They say I died!!" "Yes, I saw it," re-

plied Finney. "Where are ye callin' from?" Lost at Sea Two Irishmen, Patrick and Michael, were adrift in a lifeboat following a dramatic escape from a burning freighter. While rummaging through the boat's provisions, Patrick stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously. To the amazement of Patrick and Michael, a genie did come forth. This particular genie, however, stated that he could deliver only one wish, not the standard three. Without giving it much thought, Patrick blurted out, "turn the entire ocean into Guiness beer." The genie clapped his hands with a deafening crash, and immediately the entire sea turned into the fnest brew ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously the genie vanished. Only the gentle lapping of Guiness on the hull broke the stillness. Patrick smiled contentedly. Michael glared at him disgustedly. After a long, tension filled moment he spoke. "Nice going Patrick. Now we're going to have to pee in the boat."

Measure UUT – Your city, your choice On April 8, Sierra Madre will vote on Measure UUT, which is asking you to decide whether or not to cap and extend the current 10% Utility Users Tax rate. Measure UUT is not raising your utility tax rate. You're paying 10% today, and if you vote yes on Measure UUT, you'll continue to pay the same 10%. If Measure UUT fails, the tax rate will sunset to 6% by June 30, 2016, resulting in a loss of approximately $1,000,000 annual revenue. I'm voting in favor of Measure UUT, and I'll explain why in a three part series. I hope you'll agree with me and vote Yes on Measure UUT. Measure UUT gives Sierra Madre a choice – Do you want to continue to provide the means for our town to prosper as it has, or shall we force revenue reductions that could have far-reaching and unpredictable effects? My wife Marta and I moved to Sierra Madre thirty one years ago. We came here because of Sierra Madre's small town atmosphere, low crime rate, eclectic neighborhoods, central downtown, and its proximity to the beautiful San Gabriels. Sierra Madre had a great reputation as a place to raise a family. I can attest to that, our three children thrived growing up in this wonderful town. Thirty one years later, people are moving here for the same reasons. Let's ensure that future generations feel the same. Please take a hard look at what your tax dollars do to keep Sierra Madre the wonderful place that it is before you vote. You'll recall that when I ran to serve you on our City Council two years ago, I was against Measure 12-1, which was similar to what's before you in Measure U, but different in significant ways. I was against Measure 12-1 because: 1. It would have automatically raised your utility tax to 12% on June 30, 2013 without a council vote (I didn't think a 12% tax was necessary and I still don't) 2. It was premature. The current 10% tax rate is scheduled to sunset starting July 1, 2015. There was no need to make a decision three years early while still sorting out the effects of the

dissolution of the Redevelopment Agency and the recession, and before giving the new council a chance to assess Sierra Madre's finances 3. Public Safety was fully funded in the thencurrent budget. I did not believe that public safety would have been in jeopardy had Measure 12-1 failed, and thus far there have been no harmful effects Two years have elapsed, and your City Council and staff has continued to exercise prudent expense management. Allowing the UUT to sunset will be detrimental to keeping Sierra Madre the terrific place as we know it. First, some background. We've had a Utility Users Tax since 1993. The original UUT was implemented to mitigate the effects of Proposition 13, which limited property taxation below the rate of inflation. Property Taxes are the main source of revenue to fund municipal operations for most, if not all cities. Sierra Madre was forced to find new sources of revenue or cut services below a level that its citizens would tolerate. Sierra Madre was also affected by the demise of small “mom and pop” retailers in favor of big-box. As a result, our sales tax revenue is miniscule, approximately 2% of our General Fund revenue. Most would agree that it's a good thing that we don't have big-box or other chain type retailers here in Sierra Madre, but the penalty is diminished revenue. In 2008, Measure U was placed on the ballot to raise the UUT from six percent to twelve percent, and it expanded the categories of utilities to be taxed. There were two reasons for the tax increase. One was to give our Police Department a raise in pay, as their compensation fell significantly behind their peers in the San Gabriel Valley. The other reason was to provide continuing funding for our newly formed Paramedic program, which was implemented the year before using start-up money from the sale of the canyon fire station. A citizen's committee recommended the utility tax increase that

was placed on the ballot. It's interesting to note that at the time Measure U was placed on the ballot, Sierra Madre had received four years of healthy property tax revenue increases as a result of the huge run-up in residential property values. Even with the revenue surge, the citizen's committee recommended the UUT increase. Sierra Madre's voters agreed with the recommendation, approving Measure U by 62%. I'm sure it helped that the Council Members Kurt Zimmerman, John Buchanan, Don Watts, Joe Mosca, and Enid Joffe unanimously supported the tax and were signatories to the “Argument in Favor” that appeared on the ballot. Our Police officers were given raises in three consecutive years of 9%, 8% and 7%, which merely served to bring them from far below their peers in the San Gabriel Valley, to where they are now, which is at or very near the bottom. Nevertheless, the higher pay has allowed the Sierra Madre police department to attract better candidates and raise the standard for professionalism and integrity. We now have a better police department as a result. The UUT increase also allowed us to fully fund our Paramedic program, the cost of which is approximately $500,000 per year, to better serve our increasingly aging population. The number of paramedic-only calls has been increasing steadily year over year, and our response times are superlative, an average of just over 4 minutes. We all dislike paying taxes. As a fiscal conservative, I abhor waste and inefficiency, and cringe every April after filing my tax returns and thinking that my tens of thousands of hard-earned dollars goes to federal and state programs that I don't believe in. As a Council Member, I resent having to comply with state mandates that waste your tax dollars, provide a comfortable living for bloated bureaucrats, and consume our City's precious staff time. However, at the local level, and especially here in Sierra Madre, your tax dollars

provide for your safety and security, common public facilities and community programs. Your local tax dollars are used efficiently for your benefit, and are spent primarily on basic services that you collectively value. Next week, I'll take a closer look at our what your tax dollars provide for you and your community. Then I'll review our

revenue prospects other factors and will summarize my view. I'd love to discuss with you and hear your ideas on the best way to manage the Sierra Madre's resources. If you'd like, please call me on 355-6407, or you can email me on jcapoccia@ cityofsierramadre.com. John Capoccia, Member of Sierra Madre City Council

USMC Battle Color Ceremony held in Rosemead The United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, also known as “The Commandant’s Own,” held a Marine Corps Battle Color Ceremony last Sunday at the Rosemead High School Stadium, where it performed its 80th anniversary Music in Motion drill program. The event included the United States Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon, a 24man platoon that performs a silent and precise exhibition drill maneuvering rifles each weighing 10.5 pounds. Also, the United States Marine Corps Color Guard from the historic Marine Barracks in Washington, DC. The music performed included “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from the Broadway show “Hairspray,” a medley from “The Magnificent Seven,” and an original work by the drum corps director Major Brian Dix. They closed the show with a moving performance of John Phillip Sousa’s “The Stars and Stripes Forever.” This was an emotive event that lifted the patriotic hearts of the audience,

In attendance were current and retired Marines, who could be easily recognized by their proud demeanor and their fervent salutes during the National Anthem. One of these retired servicemen in the audience was El Monte’s Councilmember Juventino “J” Gomez. It was a sunny afternoon in Rosemead that allowed the red uniforms of the Drum and Bugle Corps and the black and white colors of the Silent Platoon to shine as they moved seamlessly through-

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

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.

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.

Sierra Madre Utility Tax ‘Another view' Editor: On April 8, 2014 we vote whether to extend the Utility Tax. I don’t like paying taxes any more than anyone else, but at the same time I have read both the official argument against the extension and a letter to the editor of the Pasadena Star News and I simply cannot figure out how failing to vote for the extension will leave the City able to fund the present level of modest expenditures. It is a truth we accept when we move here that we do not have the tax bases of other nearby communities and will need to do more for ourselves. I have lived here since 1989. I can remember

when Sierra Madre was so broke that when the City had to replace a police car we had to buy one used that another city was discarding. I can remember when the mechanic who serviced our fire trucks went unpaid for months and appeared before the Council begging for his bill to be paid. Things are no longer as desperate as that, but yet only this past year did we finally get our street resurfaced, which had needed it for years, and I look around and see that there are many other streets that equally need to be resurfaced. Every house in the City is valued in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. In my opinion, that

Raided Sierra Madre's Best Buy Drugs

is an investment worth protecting. A modicum of public services, a library that we can be proud of, parks that I am happy to entertain my grandchildren at, streets that look like they are not in a slum, reasonable fire, paramedic and police protection, pay considerable dividends in the value of our property as part of being in a desirable community. The the loss of these expenditures would promptly cost us dearly far beyond any alleged “savings”. Think of it as “saving” money by firing your gardener and letting the yard go, and wondering why your property value is down. Eric Olson Sierra Madre

What is the whole truth? The Sierra Madre Government sent out a mailing in the water bills that included four stuffers, alone with the bill. This raises more questions than it provides answers. First, is it a violation for the City to send out a mailing promoting their views on the U.U.T. when it is on the up and coming ballot on April 8th? Who generated these pieces of "information" since it does not name the author? How much did it cost the taxpayers to prepare and stuff these items into our water bills? How did the administration find the time to prepare these papers since they do not have the time to get the work done that they need to do? The article states that the S2.5M of revenue is 31

% of the total General Fund Revenues, but they spent $4.7M on public safety services. Is the income of the General Fund only approximately $8M? Where did the extra money come from to pay out the $4.8M that the City spent? How much is the\total income of the City? How much is paid out for contract services and consultants? How much money comes in from property taxes and other sources of income? How many bank accounts does the City have? Is the income from the U.U.T. and the water and sewer bills deposited in separate bank accounts or is all the money in one bank account known as the General Fund? The chart showing the

Review that Living Trust Dear Editor Any family with a living trust should review the trust to see if it provides for a division into sub-trusts on the death of one of the spouses. Literally thousands of A/B type trusts have been created in the past 30 years as a legitimate method of reducing Federal Estate taxes. That was at a time when the exemption was $600,000.00. Now the exemption is $5, 340,000.00. There is no longer any need for the cre-

ation of sub-trusts when the total value of the estate is less than $5,000,000.00. The A/B provisions place a burden on the surviving spouse to deal with two trusts after the death of the husband or wife. Any family with an A/B type trust should consult their attorney NOW to see if the trust should be amended. Waiting until after one spouse dies compounds the problem. Do it NOW. James R. Helms, Jr. Attorney at Law

average cost to the average household will only be an average of $9.22 more per month? Are they kidding? Where do they get these facts? Will they tell the whole truth that the average cost of all the items listed probably costs twice as much as they say?

Clay Festival & Gift Show returns to the Los Angeles County Arboretum April 5 -6 The American Ceramic Society – Design Chapter (ACS-DC) Clay Festival & Gift Show is returning on April 5th and 6th for its 10th annual show to the Los Angeles County Arboretum (www.arboretum. org). This festival features unique handcrafted giftware and art work by ceramic artists recruited from Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and Ventura Counties; and demonstrations by well known ceramic artists, Julie Hunter Bagish and T. Robert. Proceeds from this show will benefit the Arboretum Foundation and the ACS-DC Scholarship Fund. Julie Bagish (www.

julspottery.com) lived for 6 years as a young woman with her husband in Japan and those esthetics have sunk deeply into her artwork. The fabrics, glazes, use of space and color, the tea ceremony, basketry, ikebana, and the concept of “wabi sabi” continue to inform her work to this day. She creates small Haniwa grave figures, similar to those found by archeologists in ancient Japanese burial mounds in the Yamanashi Mountains. Her figures are very feminine with soft round stomachs, glazed and decorated with beads and other adornments. Julie lives and works in Los Angeles with her husband where she

teaches classes in her studio. • The ACS-DC Clay Festival & Gift Show will be held in Ayres Hall of the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden, 301 North Baldwin Avenue, Arcadia, CA 91007. • Admission to Ayres Hall is free.

“Battledrum” portrays youths’ role in Civil War Sierra Madre Playhouse offers all-encompassing experience Be there! Even before the drumbeat starts, pulsing louder and louder, you’ll want to be in your seat for “Battledrum.” The earlierthan-usual curtain for the Civil War drama is at 7 p.m. But even before that, you’ll be treated to fascinating glimpses of the era, hosted by any of several history buffs. Then the drum-rolls start, and the musical oneact “Battledrum” brings us an unlikely trio of drummer boys. Who are these young men? Rufus—a Kentucky war orphan after his home is burned to the ground. Jackson—bound into service by his parents. George Washington—a slave who lost his way on the Underground Railroad. Drummers played a dangerous role during the Civil War. In camp life, they signaled daily routines—reveille, mess call, taps. Over the din of battle, their drumbeats signaled orders. And the drummers were exposed, vulnerable, as the enemy could disrupt communications by picking them off. Rufus, Jackson and George are well aware of their danger, singing “…on the glorious day when I die.” Their bravado, perhaps, helps them ward off fear. But they have fun, too, joshing each other and indulging in comic rough-andtumble antics. Lots of laughs lighten the mood. As their brotherhood bonds, empathetic moments emerge. “Battledrum” lets us glimpse the contrasts between the horrors of war and the courage, valor, and patriotism of those caught in the middle of it. An old soldier mournfully lends his perspective bought from

By Fran Syverson tough experiences. A longpampered southern belle wafts onstage, encountering Jackson, and breathing a haunting tune. She struggles with the realities wherein her plantation—and possibly she herself—suffered the ravages of war. Is she real? Is she a ghost? Jackson and Rufus wonder… . Before and after the 90-minute show (there is no intermission) you will want to spend time in the foyer where walls display reproductions of Civil War photos, writings, soldiers’ letters home, and other artifacts and drum.” As director, Lebano is fulfilling his longtime memorabilia.

needed housing to our City, much of it affordable, and new retail and restaurant opportunities for our community to enjoy and will serve as a catalyst for future development.” El Monte Gateway is adjacent to Metro’s new El Monte Bus Station, a $64 million station, which opened in 2012 and features such amenities as clean energy buses. The El Monte Metro Bus Station currently serves more than 20,000 riders per day. “My number one priority is to enhance the business community in our City,” said Mayor Pro Tem Bart Patel. “This project will provide a unique mix of retail and housing in the right area of our City adjacent to Metro’s El Monte Bus Station where people are already using it in large numbers.” The groundbreaking ceremony, held at the project site at 3535 Santa Anita Ave., featured speeches from City Councilmembers and representatives from the development partners. The event’s celebratory lunch highlighted various local restaurants unique to El Monte. Upon completion, the project will feature 485 one, two, and three-bedroom

apartments ranging in size from 550 to 1,050 square feet, including 132 affordable housing units. "The Gateway Project exemplifies positive progress for the City,” said Councilwoman Victoria Martinez. “Being a transit oriented development with housing and retail opportunities enhances the idea that El Monte is a great place to live, work and raise a family." In addition, the development will include 25,000 square feet of retail shops and restaurants, creating new opportunities for businesses in El Monte. This first phase will be a catalyst to the future developments within the 60-acre Gateway Specific Plan, further creating new housing and business opportunities, and place making for dining and social gatherings. “This groundbreaking ceremony is an incredible accomplishment for the City of El Monte,” said Councilmember Juventino “J” Gomez. “This is the right project in the right location. Through the Gateway project, we will grow our economic base and make muchneeded improvements to our local infrastructure.”

In a move that aims to position El Monte as a model for smart development in the San Gabriel Valley, City officials and its development partners, Grapevine Advisors, LLC and Jamboree Housing Corporation, hosted a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, Feb. 27 to celebrate the commencement of construction on the much anticipated Gateway Project. “This project boasts so many tremendous benefits for our entire community and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate this important milestone with such a special ceremony,” said Mayor Andre Quintero. “This development will translate into the creation of hundreds of jobs, while revitalizing our City and stimulating our local economy. I believe the Gateway Project will be a model of smart planning and development in the San Gabriel Valley.” The planned 14-acre development, which is connected to the El Monte Bus Station and the historic Downtown El Monte area, will deliver housing, retail and restaurant space, as well as improvements to the surrounding area. A $15 million grant from the California Department of Housing and Community Development is also helping to fund significant infrastructure upgrades to surrounding streets. “We have worked so hard to find the right project for this area,” said Councilwoman Norma Macias. “I am so proud that all of our time and energy has resulted in this fantastic development.

Scheduled for Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., this interactive walk is the first fundraiser hosted by Flintridge with a goal to celebrate Pasadena’s sense of community, highlight historical pointsof-interest, and raise funds to support Flintridge Center’s mission to combat the effect of community violence and poverty. Starting and ending at Flintridge, 236 W. Mountain St., the walking tour of Northwest will encompass day-of event festivities including opening and closing cel-

ebrations with special musical guests, community leaders and honorable speakers from the Pasadena community. Volunteers are welcome to support day-of logistics. The Pasadena Museum of History and Pasadena Public Library have joined with Flintridge as partners in history, creating community historical highlights and providing archrival photo documentation of Northwest Pasadena. Participants of Walk Northwest will be engaged in a community learning experience as past and present historical points will be identified and celebrated along the walk route. “Rather than host a traditional fundraiser, we found a way to get our supporters engaged with the community we serve,” says Jaylene

Moseley, Flintridge’s President. “What better way to truly view and understand the community than to tour it on a beautiful spring day!” The City of Pasadena has backed Flintridge as a Walk Northwest event sponsor. In-kind donations have been secured from Whole Foods Market, Super King Market and Northwest’s own Perry’s Joint. Registration is now open for Walk Northwest and will run through Thursday, April 10, 2014. Minimum registration fee per walker is $100. Participants have the opportunity to raise the funds over the registration period.

Decision 2014: Sierra Madre Municipal Election is April 8 This week we are featuring two of the four candidates. Next week, Sierra Madre Weekly will focus on the remaining city council candidates Gene Goss and Rachelle Arizmendi

Denise Delmar - Sierra Madre is all about water By SHEL SEGAL For Denise Delmar, running for a seat on the Sierra Madre City Council just seems like the thing to do. A native of Danville in the San Francisco Bay Area, Delmar said she has found her footing in Sierra Madre. “When I moved into Sierra Madre about seven years ago I didn’t know anybody,” Delmar said. “So, I decided I would volunteer. I got involved with the general plan update. That’s been happening the last five years and I think I should continue my service with the city council. It’s something I could do.” Along with the proposed development of the Mater Dolorosa Monastery site, Delmar said the biggest issue in the city is its water crisis. “The biggest issue for me is water,” she said. “It’s the biggest issue for everybody. We have discoloration of water, quantity

of water, the way our infrastructure works. That’s a big priority, getting our water system working and making sure the residents are safe with the water they are drinking.” So, how can the problem be fixed? “As a city council we can make that a priority and use some of the money from the water rate increase they just did and put that aside and develop a project plan that would hold the water treatment and maintenance and hold them to task,” she said. “Make sure that something is being done every single month to get all those pipes replaced. In the meantime, I’m having independent testing of water samples go out from the city to make sure it is safe to drink and not pose a health risk.” Delmar also said the city needs to do a better job reaching out to its residents. “I want to work on our community engagement,” she said. “I think we’ve lost

a little bit of that over the last couple of years. I don’t know why. I would really like to increase our community engagement, not just volunteerism, but letting people know what’s going on in the city.

the city water system,” he said. “I’m in favor of pushing that through. There are also discussions of implementing grey water initiatives. Because it doesn’t have as many toxins or impurities in it, it can be recycled.” Green added installing grey water systems might be the way to go for Sierra Madre residents. “It costs about $2,000 to $4,000 to implement a grey water system,” he said. “It’s not an easy thing to. The city shouldn’t make everyone retrofit their homes for grey water. It’s a pretty big burden, unless we can find some funding to help ease that burden. I do think that new homes should be required to have it, or if you have substantial renovations. That should be something that’s required.” As far as the user utility tax is concerned – and this is on the ballot for Sierra Madre residents to decide – he said he feels it should remain in place as it is scheduled to sunset in

He added he would like to keep the UUT at 10 percent. “The question that boils down is what is the scope of local government that you want to have?” Green said. “If you want to keep the services you have right now you have to keep the (user utility tax) at 10 percent. If you pear back the UUT we’re going to start making cuts and we’re going to have to talk seriously about where those cuts would come from.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com).

Identity theft suspect who worked in Pasadena arrested Hundreds of possible victims Suspect Jordan came to the attention of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Community College Bureau after suspicious transactions totaling over $1000, occurred on the West Los Angeles College campus. Suspect Jordan was allegedly using fraudulently obtained credit card numbers and identities to purchase gift receipts on campus. She would then use these gift receipts to pay for classes she was enrolled in at the college. Additionally, the investigation has revealed that Suspect Jordan afforded herself hair extensions, clothing, jewelry and airline tickets to Alaska with her proceeds from the scheme. Suspect Jordan obtained her victims’ infor-

mation through her prior employment at ABEO, a medical billing company with offices in Pasadena. She had been employed by the company since 2008, where she potentially had access to thousands of client identity profiles. During the course of several search warrants, she was found to be in possession of over 400 identity profiles and over 200 credit numbers for other victims . Victims of the elaborate scheme have been located in Los Angeles, Torrance, Santa Monica, Topanga, Malibu, Mammoth Lakes, as well as, in the states of Tennessee and Mississippi. Sheriff’s investigators remind the public, a good way to protect yourself

hall, in addition to hearing keynote speakers and attending poetry and dance performances, the students participated in a roundtable discussion about equity in education with a diverse group of UCLA students. At the roundtable, Mountain View High School students shared their ideas on how the CPO groups could improve their outreach. CPO education projects include LGL and similar student groups that perform service related to education. "This was an exciting opportunity not only for our students to visit a college campus, but to interact with accomplished

college students who represent a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds," said Weller. "I thank LGL for inviting our students to this worthwhile event." "I felt the UCLA students were really interested in my opinion and what I had to say," said one Mountain View High School student. "It was a great experience to be on the UCLA campus," said another. "The roundtable discussion was very interesting and I enjoyed the dance performances." LGL provided transportation to the event for the students as well as dinner.

Asm. Holden joins Attorney General Kamala Harris on truancy legislation Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) Monday joined Attorney General Kamala Harris and legislative leaders in announcing legislation to tackle the truancy crisis in California. “I am proud to author a bill that will help more students stay in the classroom and out of the courtroom,” said Assemblymember Holden. “If schools aren’t tracking what students are

missing you won’t be able to effectively fix the problem. Second graders are missing school and arriving late for very different reasons than 11th graders. Requiring County Offices of Education to forward the complete reports to the Dept. of Education will allow them to identify trends and find best practices to address this crisis.” Holden’s AB 1672 requires local Student At-

tendance Review Boards (SARB) to report information on student enrollment, absence and truancy rates, referrals to the district attorney and intervention outcomes. Current SARB reports provide minimal information about intervention outcomes, so it is difficult to get the full picture. This bill ensures schools, districts, and counties can evaluate the success of truancy intervention efforts.

Baer and baseball…brilliant By SHEL SEGAL

Alex Baer

Some people like playing baseball. Some love it. And then there’s Alex Baer. Baer is having so much fun on the diamond he might never leave. “My goal is to keep playing baseball ‘til I die,” Baer said. Baer is an 18-year-old senior on the Pasadena High baseball team. Playing right field and excelling at it, he will be attending Pepperdine University in the fall on a full-ride academic scholarship. “I found out the week before Christmas that I got it,” Baer said of getting word of receiving the scholarship.

“I was going crazy (when I found out). I’m a big guy and I was in my room, knocking over furniture, knocking paintings off the wall, jumping around, going insane. I’m stoked.” But will he get to play baseball for the Waves? “My goal is to play baseball there,” said Baer, who has been playing baseball since he was 4 years old. “I talked to the coach a little bit. He’s seen me play once or twice. Once he’s seen me play a little bit more I could be a recruited walk-on. If not, I’ll try out like everyone else and work my way up to a spot on the team.” Standing at 6-foor-4, 225 pounds, Baer – a fouryear varsity starter with the Bulldogs – bats clean-up for the team. He said he is looking to really contribute this season. “I did pretty well my sophomore year,” said Baer, who moved to Pasadena when he was 2 years old. “I batted .400 my sophomore year. I cooled off a little bit my junior year. I came off a knee surgery, so I wasn’t 100 percent. But I feel this

year is going to be my big break-out season.” And why play right field? “I love right field,” Baer said. “Our field’s got a short right field porch so you can cheat in a little bit. And I like to throw the guy out at first base. That’s a play I enjoy. And (throwing to third base) is the longest throw on the field. I like to show my arm off.” He added he has really learned a lot from playing for Pasadena coach Mike Parisi. “He’s been great,” Baer said of Parisi. “He’s been really helpful. He’s helped me out a lot. I came to the program as a third baseman. It didn’t turn out too great for me. He showed me right field and helped me out a little bit. He’s gotten me on a couple of tryouts for teams and things like that. He’s just really supportive and does a lot for his players.” Parisi said Baer is just one of those top-notch kind of guys. “He led our team in hitting as a sophomore,” Parisi said of Baer. “He’s been a

big player in our program. I’m excited for him for his senior year. He’s going to be one of the better players in this area. He’s always had a great head on his shoulders.” And since Baer is going to Pepperdine via the academic route, he said that math is his favorite subject with Hendrik van Leuven being his favorite teacher. And for good reason. “When you’re talking to (van Leuven) it’s like he’s not one of your teachers,” Baer said. “He’s one of your buddies. He makes the class a little exciting. He gives a twist to the class. But you’re learning. You’re still getting your work done. I enjoy it.” Baer is also hoping to use those math skills once out of college, he said. “I want to go into financial services,” he said. “My dad is a stock broker and I want to go into that with him and see where that takes me.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

‘Curtains’ calls at Arcadia High March 20-21 ArcadiaStage, the award winning theatre department of Arcadia High School, presents Curtains on March 20 & 21 at 7 pm and March 22 at 4 pm in the beautiful and spacious Arcadia Performing Arts Center (APAC). This talented cast of high school students has won national and state theatre competitions, as well as performed on stage at The Pantages during the Jerry Hermann Awards Show for High School Musicals. Susan Egan, the Belle of Broadway, recently invited these gifted students to perform with her in concert at the APAC on March 1st. Moreover, the productions put on by the ArcadiaStage director, Steven Volpe, are not what you might expect from a high school. The sets, the costume design, and the talent of these actors are simply amazing. In fact, their shows for the last several years have always sold out prior to opening night. Their upcoming spring production, Curtains, is not just a mystery, not just a musical, not just a comedy, but all three rolled into one hilarious toe-tapping event! When the supremely untalented star of Robbin’ Hood of the Old West is murdered during her opening night curtain call, it’s up to Detective Frank Cioffi, portrayed by the very ca-

Arcadia’s Matt Denny’s hosts biggest ever Childhood Cancer Fundraiser - March 19 13th Annual event to be held 6:30 p.m. at Matt Denny's Ale House next Wednesday By Terry Miller Matt Denny’s and Del Sol Salon hair dressing salon will co-sponsor this event for the 13th time. With the support of the Arcadia Fire and Police Departments, Holy Angels School and many other clubs and individuals, Matt Denny’s has helped raise over $450,000.00 since 2001. Started about 12 years ago by some New York insurance executives, the St. Baldrick’s annual fundraising event has grown exponentially in popularity. Each year 160,000 children are diagnosed with cancer. Cancer is the number one disease killer of children in the U.S. and Canada. On a national level, the St Baldrick’s foundation has thus far raised $13,756,213 this year alone according to a check on their website. Locally, at Matt McSweeny’s popular speak-

easy, Matt Denny’s Ale House, the 11th annual event to shave heads in solidarity with children suffering from cancer being treated at City of Hope, will attract a lot more people than in years past. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation and Matt Denny’s host the head-shaving event annually to raise funds and awareness for life-saving childhood cancer research. Last year, customers at Matt Denny raised over $53,000 for the fundraiser when all the pennies were counted. It could easily be another record year for Matt Denny’s and St Baldrick’s. Why all the shaved heads? St. Baldrick’s is a nonprofit organization that raises funds for childhood cancer research by hosting worldwide head-shaving events where volunteers collect pledges to shave their heads in solidarity with kids with cancer, rais-

ing money to fund childhood cancer research. Members of the Arcadia Fire and Police Department will be shaving their heads to honor the more than 160,000 kids diagnosed each year worldwide. Children from the City of Hope, who will arrive in style on fire engines thanks to the support of the local fire department, are the event’s special guests of the night and will be helping take swipes of hair off the local firefighters and police officers’ heads. Hair Stylists from Del Sol Salon & Spa will be serving as volunteer barbers. The event will also include live music, an ice cream sundae station and food throughout the evening. Raffle prizes will be drawn throughout the event as well. For more information, check out the event page on the St. Baldrick’s website. Matt McSweeny has been a consistent partner

with St Baldrick’s having the event at his restaurant/ pub every year without fail. Mc Sweeny said it is a real “community builder” giving people in all walks

of life a chance to get to know one another in a fun, friendly environment and at the same time raising a tremendous amount of cash for research.

Over 78% of monies raised at St. Baldrick’s goes directly into research. 19% goes back into fundraising and only 3% for administrative expenses.

Community outreach on the dangers of tobacco in Duarte More than 200 people from the Greater San Gabriel Valley registered for the free event last week, during which several doctors presented information on different aspects of the dreadful disease. All seminars were conducted in Mandarin. Glendale Adventist Medical Center and CAFÉ Duarte set up a table with brochures and posters in Chinese and English, which explained the connection between tobacco use and exposure to second-

hand smoke and various types of cancer. They also provided resources for those who want to quit smoking. In January 2014, the U.S. Surgeon General’s office marked the 50th anniversary of its first report informing the American public about the health consequences of smoking tobacco. Although public health initiatives have helped reduce the number of smokers over the years, tobacco use remains to this day the primary cause of

preventable death in the United States. It kills more than 36,000 adults in California each year. Exposure to secondhand smoke is another cause of preventable death. Tobacco smoke is a deadly mix of more than 7,000 chemicals including arsenic, carbon monoxide, ammonia and formaldehyde. For more information, please contact CAFÉ Coalition at Guadulesa.Rivera@ ah.org or (323) 255-9030 x3.

Fellowship Monrovia celebrates second anniversary, honors Harambee Founder Fellowship Monrovia celebrated its second anniversary with a festive gathering at Monrovia High School’s Event Center recently. Several hundred local residents attended the event, which was highlighted by the presentation of the inaugural Living Legend Award to Dr. John Perkins. A neighborhood that was accustomed to gunfire and screams now hears laughter, and on Sundays, hymns filling the air. Harambee, a Swahili phrase meaning “get together and push,” began as an after-school program but has since expanded its programs to fill families’ needs as it continues its efforts to revitalize the area. Perkins had assistance from Lake Avenue Church, which helped get Fellowship Monrovia up and running for its first service in January 2012. “As a church family, we talk about what to model our church after and who to model as disciples,” said Fellowship Monrovia Pastor Albert Tate. “When I think of Dr. John Perkins, he’s exemplified and modeled it: pursuit of reconciliation, justice and love.” Perkins’ foray into the dark street corners of northwest Pasadena wasn’t his first experience in the San Gabriel Valley. After his brother was murdered by a town marshal in 1947, then-17-year-old Perkins fled Mississippi for Monrovia. It was there, according to Tate, that Perkins came to Christ. Perkins lived in Monrovia, a place he called “precious,” for 13 years before moving back to Mississippi and founding Voice of Calvary Bible Institute. But his path would bring him back to Califor-

nia once again in 1982. A board member at Voice of Calvary Ministry offered a guest house as temporary housing to Perkins and his wife, Vera Mae. Once the Perkinses discovered the rampant drug dealing and all-too-familiar gangrelated killings in northwest Pasadena, the couple elected to head toward the danger. “Oh, that crime: You’ve got to read the records,” Perkins recalled. “We moved up there and confronted those gangs head-on.” Perkins did so by purchasing a drug house on the corner of Navarro and Howard. The home, which had included a tent serving as a brothel in the backyard, was converted into a safe place. Prayer groups popped up and the people of northwest Pasadena – who were terrified of the violence and frustrated with local leadership – mobilized under Perkins. “He is so highly dedicated,” Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard said. “He has dealt with some of the

most difficult problems facing young people, in terms of violence and killing. He was so strongly motivated to help young people go in the right direction.” Harambee School Executive Director Harlan Redmond is one of those guided by Perkins’ voice. Long before coming to work at Harambee, Redmond attended a conference about creating ministries in Chicago. As Perkins explained to the crowd of 100 what his late mother – who died in his infancy – would have expected of his life, Redmond recalls his world being turned upside down. “It struck to my heart and changed my perception on life. I started crying. I didn’t know these people, but I couldn’t stop these doggone tears from falling,” said Redmond, who laughed before continuing: “I tell people, ‘My encounter with John Perkins ruined all my plans. All right, I’ll be at the corner of Howard and Navarro. That’s where you’ll find me.’

American photographers expose veil of secrecy surrounding the WWII Japanese American Internment THREE LENSES examines the role of three American Photographers in piercing the veil of secrecy surrounding the WWII Japanese American Internment and questions the possibility of a similar injustice happening in the future. The injustice of the internment of innocent Japanese American Citizens during WWII, the role fear, racism & greed played in bringing this about, and the significance of the work of three iconic American photographers: Documentary photographer, Dorothea Lange; Landscape photographer and social activist, Ansel Adams and incarcerated camp photojournalist, Toyo Miyatake, in bringing the news of this sad moment in American history to the attention of present day Americans, is the focus of documentary feature, THREE LENSES, currently in production at Santa Ana Media Production Company, Video Resources Inc. The story of the internment has great relevance for today’s world, according to

THREE LENSES Executive Producer, Ecar Oden. “Some Americans possess a passing knowledge of the internment. But they may not appreciate the role that fear, racism and greed played in the singling out an entire race of people - most of whom were American citizens largely because they shared ‘the face of the enemy.’ THREE LENSES is not so much a Japanese American story as it is an American story made all the more relevant and timely by the very real possibility - recently confirmed by Supreme Court Justice Scalia - that it could easily happen again. “A greater knowledge by more Americans of this time in history is our society’s best protection from similar injustices happening in the future,” Oden concluded. As of March, 2014, more than a dozen interviews with historians, camp internees, family members and other contemporary experts have been completed, with an equal amount on the books for the coming months. However, finding former internees to appear on

camera has been a challenge, according to writerproducer, Jeff Redd. “More than 120,000 men, women and children were relocated to the 10 internment camps during WWII, but few remain that are willing or able to tell of their first hand experiences there. We would love to speak with any former internee willing to share their stories, journals, home movies or photos.” Joining Oden and Redd on the production team are writer/producer Denis Donovan and director Brad Hagen. Donovan is an industry vet with dozens of documen-

tary features to his credit and Hagen is Video Resources founder and CEO. In October, 2013, THREE LENSES was awarded the prestigious Abel Cine Documentary Grant, in competition with 86 other documentary concepts. An IndieGoGo Crowdfunding campaign to help with postproduction and marketing expenses will be undertaken later this spring.

just before the football season started, had ACL reconstructive surgery and did his best to recover. And recover he did, getting some work in on the mound that spring. But that was last year and this year he’s feeling like his old self. “I rehabbed for six months,” Harmon said. “At the six-month mark I was cleared to play baseball, but just pitch. So, last year I was used as the closer. I’d throw one or two innings, but I still couldn’t push off my leg. “My knee feels fine now. It’s pretty much back to where it was.” The starting quarterback on the team that went 5-5 this past year, Harmon said he’s sticking to baseball. “I think I realized that I like baseball better,” he said. “I’ve been playing baseball since I was 5 in kindergarten and playing with my dad. I’ve always done travel ball and little league. Baseball’s always been my number one.” He pitched in relief a year ago, but said he gets to start now, something he is looking forward to. “I liked the bullpen last year,” Harmon said.

“It was fun. It gets the adrenaline rushing, but I like starting because it feels like you have the whole game in your hands.” Harmon said he’s been clocked in the upper 80s and throws a fastball, curveball and changeup. And if needs to get someone out he goes to the fastball, high and tight. He is also hoping the team this year can make it far into the postseason. “I think we have real good team this year,” said Harmon, who is hoping to play baseball at an NCAA Div. I or II school next year. “We have a young team, but I think that some of those nerves and those learning curves we got done through the fall. The last couple weeks we’ve been playing really well. Our goal is to win (the Pacific League championship) and go far into (the CIF) playoffs. My last year and being a senior I’d love to win a CIF championship.” Harmon also said he is enjoying playing for coach Nick Lemas. “He’s a hard ass,” Harmon said of Lemas. “He’s old school. He’s not going to B.S. you. He’s not going to tell you

you’re better than you are. I learned I got to work hard with him. He’s a really smart baseball coach.” Lemas said he’s looking forward to a big season from Harmon. “We really like him,” Lemas said. “He’s worked really hard. Even when he was hurt he was always around. He’s worked hard to get back where he’s at. We think highly of him. We have high expectations for him and I’m sure he has high expectations for himself as well. We’re looking forward to seeing what he can do and having him for a full year.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com. Follow him via Twitter @ segallanded.)

The suspect(s) left the store on foot. An area check by pa-

trol officers and the Foothill Air Support Team helicopter met with negative results. The investigation is continuing. Critical Missing Found February 10 at 4:40 a.m., dispatch received a call regarding a critical missing adult from a residence in the 200 block of West Colorado.

Sierra Madre PD

Wednesday March 2 On Wednesday March 5, 2014, at 4:23 pm, Sierra Madre Police Department responded to Kersting Court regarding a male subject acting aggressive and approaching people for money. A witness advised Sierra Madre Police, that they saw this same subject getting out of a grey Nissan Sentra parked out-

side a local business. During investigation, vehicle was located; license plate was run to find that the vehicle was stolen out of the City of Fontana. Police saw suspect matching the description entering a business. Suspect was detained and later booked on charges for Grand Theft Auto and Commercial Burglary. Saturday March 8 On Saturday March 8, 2014 at 9:59 am. Sierra Madre Police responded to a threatening call in the 200 block of W. Laurel. After officer’s investigation, one party was arrested for threatening another individual with bodily harm. Case is still under current investigation. Sunday March 9 On Sunday March 9, 2014 at 1:00 pm, Sierra Madre Police Department responded to the 300 block of Foothill regarding a residential burglary. Resident advised officers that they were gone approximately 3.5 hours. When resident returned home they discovered their house had been ransacked, and items were stolen.

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.

Bill Peters, 81

Bill Peters, 81, passed away in Sierra Madre, CA on March 8, 2014. He was born on January 15, 1933 in Middletown, CT and moved with his family to Altadena, CA in 1941. Growing up, the Eaton Canyon nature preserve was his playground and he developed a lifelong passion for hiking the trails of the San Gabriel Mountains. Bill earned an AA degree from Pasadena City

College and a BA degree in Sociology from Colorado College. He had a talent for performing arts and one of his fondest memories was the summer he spent on Catalina Island as the Boat Greeter, entertaining tourists with ukulele ballads and comedic skits. An accomplished businessman, Bill served as president and CEO of Trail Chemical Corporation in El Monte, which was founded by his father, William J. Peters, Sr. Bill was president of the El Monte Chamber of Commerce, Chairman of the Chemical Industry of California and was the sole representative for small businesses on the national Commission on Superfund. Bill enjoyed being involved in his community and served on the boards of the Los Angeles County

Arboretum Foundation, the Pasadena Arts Council and the Pasadena Symphony Association. He received numerous awards for his community including the Rose of Honor Award from the city of El Monte. The El Monte Chamber of Commerce named him the Joseph Schenbaum Man of the Year. After retirement, Bill began a second career as a music journalist. He used his extensive knowledge of classical music to write reviews of local performances for regional newspapers. His well-respected website, petersmusicnews.com was sponsored by Beacon Media News and ran for many years. Bill will be most remembered for his quick wit and musical talent. He played stride piano and had

an encyclopedic knowledge of the Great American Song Book. He was generous with his gift and always happy to entertain friends and family with impromptu sing-along’s around the piano. Bill is survived by Janet Paine Peters, his wife of 56 years; Judy Avila, his daughter; Tom Peters, his son and wife Linda; Lisa Harrington, his niece; and grandchildren Kenneth Avila, Kristine Avila and Noah Pflueger-Peters. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 22 at 11:00 AM at Sierra Madre Methodist Church, 695 W. Sierra Madre Blvd, Sierra Madre, CA. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the Eaton Canyon Nature Center Associates, 1750 N. Altadena Dr, Pasadena, CA 91107.

Los Angeles County to implement online application process To provide county residents with a convenient method to access government applications and permits, the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion by Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich to implement “E-government solutions” to County systems as recommended by the Citizen’s Economy and Efficiency Committee. “This action accelerates the County’s initiative to utilize technology to facilitate the application and

Among the recommendations made by the Commission include: 1) Adopting E-government technologies including online permit and ap-

plication submittals 2) Designating an Egovernment authority to cut red tape 3) Establishing a clear management process for high-tech projects 4) Establishing a countywide culture that embraces technology 5) Updating and replacing antiquated systems 6) Including E-government in departmental strategic plans 7) Improving management structure to eliminate

redundancy 8) Establishing technology fund 9) Publishing a road map for E-government projects 10) Reorganizing existing Information Technology Group into smaller groups of specialists 11) Recruiting specialized personnel to spearhead key projects 12) Encouraging the County to evaluate and apply innovative E-government practices

Newsweek reporter questioned by Temple Station deputies Last week Temple Sheriff’s Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department received a suspicious person call in Temple City. The caller reported an unknown woman in her 20’s was knocking on the door at his home, and sitting on his porch for the past hour. The caller said he was afraid to open the door.

Two deputies responded and spoke to the male resident caller and the woman. The woman identified herself as Newsweek reporter Leah Goodman and the resident expressed reluctance to talk to her. The deputies were present for the brief conversation between the two, and then the resident went back inside

his home and the reporter left. “I spoke to the two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies who handled the call and who were present for the conversation,” said Captain Mike Parker, Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. “Both sheriff’s deputies agreed

Starting a new business? File your DBA with us at filedba.com San Gabriel City Notices 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. 2.

Landscaping 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. On March 4, 2014, at its regular meeting, the City Council of the City of San Gabriel adopted Ordinance No. 601-C.S. to become effective April 4, 2014.

However, prepayment premiums, accrued interest and advances will increase this figure prior to sale. Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan associa-

tion, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. 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 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, CA05003579-13-1. 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.

Wistaria Festival 2014

Sierra Madre Elementary

Continued from page 1

The Guinness Book of World Records has certified the vine as the world’s largest blossoming plant, and estimates that at its peak, the vine had as many as 1.5 million blooms, weighed 250 tons, and covered more than an acre of ground. The vine is so large that it encompasses the better part of two properties. At one point the vine, which was originally planted in 1894, actually destroyed a structure on one of the properties, which crumbled under its weight. In addition to the vine viewing, downtown Sierra Madre is transformed into an arts and craft fair for the day, with 100 artisans and crafters displaying their work at booths on the town’s two main streets, which are closed off to traffic for the day. This compliments well the charming village shops that line the downtown area, offering those in attendance a great opportunity to find just the right gift, that special item for the home décor, or a keepsake to be treasured through the years. In addition to the shops, the town’s restaurants will be

serving the delightful cuisine Sierra Madre has become known for. Since the surge in popularity of outdoor dining in the 1990s, Sierra Madre has been known throughout the valley as a great place to dine al fresco with a spectacular view of the San Gabriel mountains just to the north. There’s something for every taste, with a variety of international flavors at the local eateries, Mexican, Italian, Thai, and California Continental cuisines, several types of American cuisine

and even a Sushi spot. A dozen musical acts will be performing at five outdoor venues that range from solo acoustic guitar and vocals, to blues rock, country rock and more. The downtown festival is free to all who attend. Viewing of the vine is also free of charge, but due to the steep uphill climb to the private properties and limited parking in the vicinity of the vine, it is recommended that enjoy a ride in the shuttle buses provided for your

comfort. Tickets for the shuttle are $12 round-trip when purchased in advance, and $15 the day of the event. Because the vine is on private property, it is not ADA compliant. Due to the hilly terrain, the site will not accommodate wheelchairs, strollers or people with limited mobility. Shuttle tickets can be purchased online and printed on your home computer up to and including the day of the event. Visit www.WistariaTickets. com to purchase your tickets.

high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time and reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. “We are proud that these three schools are being recognized by California’s business community as Honor Roll schools,” said PUSD Superintendent Jon R. Gundry. “Our teachers and administrators work tirelessly to keep the focus on high expectations and student academic achievement and I am pleased that this dedication is paying off.” “Having high standards, effective school leadership, and staying focused on student academic achievement has paid off for these Honor Roll Schools,” said Lee Blitch, CBEE Chairman and past CEO, San Francisco Chamber of Commerce. “These schools are an inspiration.” Over time, CBEE has identified a common set of success factors in higher performing Honor Roll schools and districts. These include high expectations for all students; ongoing collaboration among

teachers to improve practice; targeted use of data to pinpoint challenges and monitor progress; continual intervention for struggling students; and mastery of content knowledge and pedagogical practices. “Our goal is to highlight these amazing schools who have been succeeding with our kids. Their practices can be replicated but only if those looking know where the status quo is unacceptable and where success and myth busting is taking place,” said Jim Lanich, CBEE president. “All schools--no matter what zip code they are in-- can achieve this kind of success.” The annual Honor Roll award is made possible with support from numerous businesses and organizations including State Farm, Macy’s, Edison International, Wells Fargo, Southern California Auto Club, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the California Business Roundtable, and several private foundations. Chevron Corporation provided specific support in the creation of the STEM Honor Roll. A full list of the Honor Roll schools can be found at www.cbee.org.
