Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez announced new efforts by his department to increase lucidity in communication with the public and in inquiries of his officers Monday.

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

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

I love it when I'm searching for something and find something better. Searching my files has provided me a wealth of opportunities to reminisce, to cry, to laugh, and to just simply count my blessings. I found the following little gem that someone sent me: A Guideline For Female Schoolteachers (1907). 1. Do not get married. 2. Do not leave town anytime without school board permission. 3. Do not keep company with men. 4. Be home between the ours of 8p.m. and 6a.m. 5. Do not smoke. 6. Do not loiter around in ice cream shops. 7. Do not dress in bright colors. 8. Do not dye your hair. 9. Do not wear any dress more than 2 inches above the ankle. 10. Do not get into any

carriage with any man except your father or brother. Kind of funny, huh? But now, are you ready for the next one? Along with that guideline, I found the following from the Teacher's Handbook that I was given when I started my teaching position in California in 1964. A female principal wrote it, if that means anything. A. Appropriate Dress for Teachers 1. Ladies a. Extremes of dress, hairdo, etc., may tend to draw criticism and, therefore, should be avoided. b. Since it is my responsibility to evaluate, in all fairness, you will need to know some of my feelings in this area. Hose: It is permissible to be hoseless if (1) your legs are reasonably slender and hairless, (2) well fitting "peds" are worn with heelless or toeless shoes, (3) your legs are free of blemishes such as scars, broken veins, etc. Hair: Excessively long hair worn "down" seems to me extreme and therefore to be avoided. Dresses: Cottons are fine provided they do not

have a "housedress" look (you are professional people). Sleeveless dresses are OK provided underarm hair is removed. Shoes: Shoes should be appropriate to your duties. Extremely high heels do not lend themselves to yard duty or PE. Some types of sandals are in this class also. If you are a "high-heeler", better keep a pair of "reasonable flats" in your cupboard for these times. Girdle: If you need one, wear it. Nails: There is a danger of scratching children inadvertently, if nails are excessively long. Paint them if you can keep them neat...if not, better avoid paint. Extreme colors are to be avoided for school time...that is, mother-ofpearl, silver, blue, etc. 2. MEN: Conventional business shirts. Short sleeves are OK or sleeves rolled. Tie may be removed and neck opened during warm weather. Written by a female definitely has meaning. I think the poor dear has passed on by now, and it is probably just as well. Times have changed.

Scam Alert: Business Utilities Shut-Off Threat The Monrovia Police Department wants to alert the public to a scam that has been occurring in the area targeting businesses. The Suspects in this scam call the business claiming to be in billing or collections for Southern California Edison (SCE) and/or Verizon. The caller tells the business their services are going to be shut off within 45 minutes to an hour, and a crew has already been dispatched to cut off the service unless a same-day payment is made immediately. They

claim their records show the business is late on their payment and the service to the business will be affected within the hour. The caller then requests the payment be made by a prepaid VISA or Money Pak Card and then tells the business where they are available. The suspects sound seemingly legitimate and are targeting businesses, as businesses typically cannot afford to be without phones or power over the weekend. It is NOT normal SCE or Verizon protocol to shut

off service on the weekends. The Monrovia Police Department is asking the public to spread awareness to this scam in hopes of preventing this crime from happening and to help keep Monrovia businesses from becoming the victim. Please be aware that utility companies do not work this way and always call the company to verify any information. If you feel something is suspicious, you can always call the Monrovia Police Department at (626) 256-8000.

Measure UUT: Your City, Your Choice, Part II Last week, I gave some background on the Users Utility Tax. This week I'll review Sierra Madre's various departments, what they do and how your tax dollars are spent, and I'll discuss the possibilities for cuts. The following week I'll also examine the prospects for other sources of revenue should Measure UUT fail, personnel costs, and I'll discuss some other risk factors. But first, a little more background: Measure U, when approved by the voters in 2008, specified that the UUT would be raised in three steps in three consecutive years – to 8% in 2008, 10% in 2009, and 12% in 2010. Measure U was accompanied by a companion Measure UA, which called for a nonbinding recommendation that the increase in UUT be used only for public safety. Prior to what would have been an increase to 12% increase in 2010, the City Council voted to suspend the increase, and keep the UUT at 10%. They also further reduced the rate to 9% for water and sewer, to avoid creating a windfall as a result of imminent water rate hikes. UUT revenue has been fairly level since. From the time Measure U passed, the increased expenditures for public safety have exceeded the revenue provided by Measure U. This has been verified annually by the UUT Advisory Committee, and documented in our audited Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The difference was made up by belt-tightening in the General Fund. Your City Council and staff continued to hold the line on expenses. In 2011 the windstorm hit, with a resultant clean-up expense of over $600,000. The dis-

Santa Anita Derby Day 5K Run & Walk Saturday, April 5

Letter to the Editor What is the whole truth (Part 2) Included in the Sierra Madre water bill mailing was also information on the new water rats, which also RAISES many questions! Since the Public Works Director has said in a public City Council Meeting a year ago, "All the water costs the same", is that a true statement? Do we really have a water shortage or is this crisis made up? Since the City Council voted to buy water from Arcadia, why are we using MWD water instead? Why is it being said that we are buying the water from the SGWD? Arcadia water was to cost $95.00/per acre foot. It is said that MWD water costs $260.00/per acre foot, but we are told we are not buying from either source. What is the truth? Does the water really cost us money or are we just using up some of the credits that have been accruing for years? Why does the illustration on page 2 only show the first two tiers instead of all 4 tiers? What is the true cost of the water? Shouldn't the charge to the people be based on cost? It is stated that the City currently does not have a penalty in place. If that is true, which of the four rates are not a penalty over the true cost? This does

not mention the middle rate that is being charged to non¬residential customers. Shouldn't everybody be treated equally? The same kind of questions are raised for the water meters. How much does a 5/8" or %" meter cost? Why are the people being charged $346.18 in 2014 and increasing to $470.00 per year by 2018? Isn't the cost of a meter of these sizes Less than $100.00, and lasts an average of 10 years? The low income rates are just as ridiculous, rising from $275.00 to $310.00 in five years. Do they think the low income group will get raises to pay for the increase? What is the name of the Private Fire Service Company? Why is this an added charge? Why are the sewer charges also variable for different classes of customers? Does everybody use the same sewers? If the City is supposed to be friendly to non-residential customers, why the added fees for HCF? Does the City really think the people are stupid and cannot see through these falsehoods? Why does the City continue on the path of fleecing the people of every dollar they can charge? Will the City fix anything in the water and sew-

er system? How much are the savings of electrical costs form shutting down the water pumps? Will the City replace the burnt electrical main in the distribution building in the City Yards? Where did the million dollar income come from that was given to the CRA Successor Agency and what do they do with the money? Will the City ever ask the SGWD to forgive the million and a half dollar debt? The money came from our property tax money that the agency received in the first place. How much water does the City waste and how much will it cost the people because the City let the landscaping die in front of City Hall? This by no means are all the questions that could be asked, and it would be nice if the City would send out a mailing answering these! The message to the people is do not believe the story that the City Administration sends out in the mails. They also say that the new UUT on the ballot will reduce the rate on the water bills from 9% to 8%. BIG DEAL! it is scheduled to sunset to 8% on all utilities if the ballot issue is defeated. Once again, VOTE NO ON THE UUT, which is on the April 8tI ballot. Sierra Madre Watchman

“Did you feel that?” It's very likely that you heard this at least once Monday after Southern California was struck by a moderate earthquake which rocked many of us out of golden slumber. Although this most recent ‘quake was comparatively small, it serves as a prompt and was early morning wake-up call if you will, to be prepared. The 4.4 magnitude earthquake occurred 4.97mi NW of Westwood Monday morning around 6:30 AM. Several local news reporters were on the air when the earthquake hit yesterday morning and

they immediately did what Californian's have been taught for decades. They took cover under their desk, seeking shelter from potential falling debris. Although many people on social media made light of their actions, they did exactly what they should have done. When an earthquake hits police and firefighters advise you to… Drop, Cover, and Hold On. Here are a couple of suggestions for being prepared: • Have a plan and make sure your family knows it. • Have enough

food/water for several days. • Keep and extra supply of prescription medicine. • If you have pets, have extra food/water for them too. • Keep an earthquake kit (flashlight, batteries, am/fm radio, first aid kit, spare clothes, etc). • Know where your natural gas shut off valve is and how to turn it off. These are just a few basic tips. There are plenty of websites that offer additional suggestions, tips, and even earthquake kits for sale in the case of an earthquake.

Letter to the Editor (Continued from page 3) Works pool program. Our Community Services Commission recently completed Sierra Madre's Parks Master Plan. Even with current funding levels, we're not able to implement many of the high priority recommendations. I'm not in favor of substantial reductions to the Community Services, and I believe the majority of Sierra Madre's citizens would agree. It could be argued that more volunteerism could reduce the dependency on city staff, but most of the major events are primarily staffed by volunteers. So at best, increasing volunteerism will only incrementally reduce expenses. Public Works: Our Public Works department is responsible for maintaining our Parks, Public Buildings, Streets, Sidewalks and Trees. Public Works also manages our Water and Sewer Utilities, both of which are funded separately and not subsidized by the General Fund. Public works is the “face” of our city. The condition of streets, sidewalks and trees reflect on the pride our citizens feel for our community. As a citizen of Sierra Madre, I feel that we've neglected our public facilities. We have a “C-” grade from the American Institute of Civil Engineers regarding the condition of our streets. We have over 300 missing street trees, and the trees that we do have are not optimally maintained because we have insufficient funds to properly trim them. Ironically we're known as a “Tree City USA” in spite of our neglect. Our sidewalks are atrocious. I'm in favor of more public works spending, not less. Library: Sierra Madre's Library just completed its Master Plan, which is ambitious, but yet very modest in that it's not asking for much in the way of taxpayer resources above the current funding level. Our library offers programs for children and adults that are widely used and appreciated by a large part of the community. Our building is aging, and is very modest especially compared to some of our neighbors such as Arcadia, Monrovia, San Marino that have built new libraries in recent years. Our Library receives a high level of volunteerism compared to other communities. The “Friends of the Library” organization has been instrumental

in supplementing funding, supporting programs and helping to bind us together in the community with great events such as the annual Wine Tasting and the Art Fair. Our Library is well utilized by all demographics from children to seniors. Many would like to see our Library service hours expanded. The current hours are minimal compared to Arcadia, Monrovia, South Pasadena and San Marino, all of which keep their libraries open for more hours than we do. Outsourcing to LA county wouldn't save much and the loss of a beloved home-grown institution would be a devastating blow to many. Fire and Paramedic: Our Fire Department is legendary and deeply embedded in Sierra Madre's legacy. Because it's primarily staffed by volunteers, it is a bargain. Our Paramedic program is becoming increasingly important as our population ages. Our response times at just over four minutes are incredibly fast. Our part-time paramedic technician's pay is very low compared to other communities. Perhaps we could save money by outsourcing Paramedic services, but would Arcadia or Pasadena offer their services to us for substantial savings? Not likely. We could possibly contract with the County That in itself won't come close to closing the budget gap. Again, the opportunity for savings is slim, especially when weighed against the possible degradation of response time. Administrative: Of the General Fund administrative costs, less than 10% is personnel, primarily for finance. The bulk of the costs are accounting costallocations for facilities, fleet management etc. (If that is confusing, thank the GAAP folks, we're just following Generally Accepted Accounting Practices). Over the years, our municipal accounting has improved tremendously. Our audits are squeaky-clean and are produced on-time. Our budget documents are award-winning (Califiornia State Municipal Finance Officers “Excellence in Budgeting”). Sierra Madre also won an award for use of our website and social media to promote transparency. I would not recommend deep cuts and reverting to past practices, where large sums of money were “lost” then “found”, and where

lack of internal controls prevented verification that no cross-subsidization between general fund and enterprise accounts occurs. Police: Police services consume by far the largest part of the General Fund budget. Our department generally provides at least two patrol vehicles giving a highly visible police presence, with available backup that can be quickly deployed from our local headquarters. Our department has made significant strides over recent years. We've brought in leadership from outside the organization to implement best practices and to hold our sworn officers to higher standards, while emphasizing “community policing”. The department has increased the use of volunteers to lower cost, and has implemented state of the art technology to improve its effectiveness, efficiency, and accountability. In 2010, the City Council solicited proposals for Police Services from the cities of Pasadena and Arcadia, and from the LA County Sheriff. Arcadia declined to respond. Pasadena and the Sheriff responded, but the Sheriff's response was preliminary, a detailed proposal would cost Sierra Madre approximately $25,000. From the preliminary proposal, it appears that contracting with the Sheriff could eventually save $1,000,000 per year, but at a lower level of service. After reviewing, the City Council did not move forward. What is unclear is how much the transition to Sheriff would cost, and exactly what they would provide. We do know that the Sheriff would not staff our current headquarters, and all police services would be provided out of the Temple City station or the Altadena Station. It's unknown how response time would be effected. I've compared our costs with La Canada, which is a Sheriff contract city. Yes our costs are higher, but our response times are significantly better and our crime rate is significantly lower. We have always been willing to pay more to keep our town safe. That's who we are. Public safety is critical attribute that defines Sierra Madre. Contracting Police Services should not be taken lightly. Thorough analysis is needed, followed by a vigorous public debate. I would argue that given the critical nature of Police Services, a

change such as this should be entrusted only to a direct vote by Sierra Madre's citizens. Once police services are outsourced, there's no going back. If Sierra Madre wishes to consider this seriously, let's pay for a detailed proposal from the Sheriff Department, plan on conducting a thorough analysis over the next two years, and put it on the ballot for the 2016 municipal election. Let's proceed with extreme caution. Measure UUT is asking

that our citizens maintain the same 10% utility tax rate that they are paying today. The reason for extending the utility tax and preserving the current revenue stream is simple: The loss of approximately $1,000,000 per year from our General Fund Budget will have consequences. The City Council will be faced with tough choices. We'll either have to make deep cuts across the board, or contract out entire operations such as our Police Department.

This is your City and your Choice: I hope you'll choose to keep Sierra Madre the wonderful place that it is by voting YES on Measure UUT. 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

State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson reports significant drop in number of districts in financial jeopardy A new report shows that the number of California school districts in financial jeopardy has dropped sharply for the second year in a row, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today. This year’s First Interim Status Report, FY 201314 shows that a total of 49 local educational agencies (LEAs) are either in negative or qualified financial status. This is down significantly from the last report— in May 2013—that showed 92 LEAs with this status, and is down even more significantly from the same report a year ago. In the First Interim Status report of 2013, there were 124 LEAs in financial jeopardy. “Californians have put our schools back on the path toward economic recovery after several years and billions of dollars of cuts, and they are working hard to continue down that path,” Torlakson said. “Although our work won’t be done until every school is in solid financial shape, this is certainly movement in the

right direction.” Of the current 49 LEAs on the list, eight have a negative certification, the same number reported in May 2013. Another 41 LEAs have a qualified certification, down from 84 in May 2013. See the attached table. Twice a year, the California Department of Education receives Notice of Interim Certifications on the financial status of the state's 1,038 LEAs, comprising school districts, county offices of education, and joint powers agencies. The certifications are classified as positive, qualified, or negative. A positive certification means the LEA will meet its financial obligations for the current and two following fiscal years. A qualified certification is assigned when the LEA may not meet its financial obligations for the current or two following fiscal years. This certification allows the LEA's county office of education to provide assistance to the district. A negative certification—the most serious of the classifications—is assigned

when the LEA will be unable to meet its financial obligations for the remainder of the current year or for the subsequent fiscal year. This certification means the LEA's county office of education may intervene in the district's finances. The assistance or intervention by the county office of education may include assigning external consultants, requiring a district fiscal recovery plan, or disallowing certain district expenditures. This new list is a compilation of the certifications by LEAs that were due December 15, 2013, and cover the financial and budgetary status of the LEAs for the period ending October 31, 2013. The certifications reflect whether the LEAs are able to meet their financial obligations for the remainder of the current fiscal year and subsequent two fiscal years, based on projections at that point in time. Because these Interim Status Reports are snapshots in time, the LEAs' financial status may have changed since these certifications were collected.

Federal Approval of California testing waiver State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson and State Board of Education President Michael W. Kirst issued the following statement today regarding the federal approval of California’s testing waiver. “We appreciate the Obama Administration's approval of this important request, which will allow far more California students to get a hands-on experience with the new 21st century assessments that will help guide them as they gain the

skills they need to succeed in the real world of careers and college. "Approval of this waiver could not have come at a better time. In little more than a week, some three million students will begin the largest field test of these new assessments of any state in the nation. "This is an important moment for California. Across the state, there's a new spirit of hope and optimism in our schools as they take on this challenging transformation. There are

concerns as well, and there are sure to be challenges as we move ahead. But California has always led the way, and our teachers, administrators, and school employees have always been willing to meet any challenge to help our students succeed. “Today’s action by the Obama Administration represents a welcome vote of confidence in the course we've set toward providing all students the world-class education they need and deserve."

Native American Indian theme Camp Shi’ini popular for 67 years For 67 years, Camp Shi’ini has provided active and entertaining camp activities for boys and girls without a prolonged absence from home. Our goal is to provide an enjoyable and safe environment for children, while also educating them about Native American folklore through interactive and action-packed surroundings. We are the “ultimate camping experience” in the San Gabriel Valley. Camp Shi’ini is a Native American Indian themed day camp that lasts five weeks each summer. Shi’ini, pronounced “Shee-nee,” is a Navajo word meaning “Summer People.” Our theme is portrayed in several daily events, including: horseback riding, canoeing, archery, bear hunting, totem pole painting, teepee building, hiking, beach trips, swimming, and an extraordinary month-long treasure hunt adventure! While at camp, the children are broken into various groups according to their ages. Each of these groups functions as a separate unit throughout the day. There are a dozen

groups, each composed of 12 campers and 2 counselors. Our 6:1 camper-tocounselor-ratio is one of the very best throughout all of the San Gabriel Valley! Due to our limited number of campers, Camp Shi’ini is able to offer a great variety of activities with more individual supervision. Some include: Indian lore, cookouts, nature hikes, and unique games and sports. Both a senior and junior counselor are assigned to each group. At Camp Shi’ini, senior counselors are hired on the basis of: ideals, college records, maturity, experience, occupation, driving records, and the ability to understand children. Junior counselors are hired on the basis of: leadership, character, attentiveness, dependability, and overall experience working with kids. Both sets of counselors are well-trained and exceptionally responsible. They take great pride in their jobs and love working with the campers. Counselors pick up campers from their homes in new, seat-belt

equipped vans between 8:30-9:20 AM. Campers are returned home between 3:50-4:40 PM. Since safety is our top-concern, each van driver must go through an extensive training course and earn a California Commercial Class B Drivers License from the California DMV. The shaded areas and turf fields of the lower Arroyo Seco have been the primary location of our camp for many years. It is one of the few remaining primitive areas in the vicinity. Arroyo Park (located on Stoney Drive in South Pasadena) affords the perfect atmosphere for most of our camp activities. Since 1947, Camp Shi’ini has developed an outstanding legacy, creating childhood memories bound to last a lifetime. It is truly an experience that captivates the hearts and imaginations of every camper! To reserve space for your child at Camp Shi’ini, or for more information, please give us a call at (626) 922-0945 or visit our website at www. campshi-ini.com.

Guidance for teachers and schools as they prepare students for careers and college Twelve new standards— ranging from being able to apply technology effectively to working productively with a team—are designed to guide California’s teachers as they help students achieve college and career readiness, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced today. Speaking Monday at the annual Educating for Career Conference sponsored by the California Career Pathways Consortia and the California Partnership Academies, Torlakson told some 2,800 educators that these “Standards for Career Ready Practice” describe in general terms what students need to succeed when they transfer to postsecondary education, career training, or the workforce—beyond academic skills. “With Common Core, the new Smarter Balanced assessments, and more, we are recommitting to California’s longstanding goal of college and career readiness for every student,” Torlakson said. “Beyond academic knowledge lies a whole host of other skills students need to succeed outside the class-

room, things like: whether they’re financially literate, whether they can communicate their ideas effectively, and whether they can use technology safely and sensibly.” Torlakson said the new standards, though drawn in part from last year’s Career Technical Education (CTE) Model Curriculum Standards, are not exclusive to a career pathway, a CTE program of study, or a particular discipline or level of education. The standards themselves are general and broad in nature, but are intended to serve as the foundation for teaching and career preparedness from kindergarten through grade Twelve. The full list can be found on the California Department of Education’s Standards for Career Ready Practice (PDF) Web document. “Educators know that the world is changing, and so our schools have to change, too,” Torlakson said. “Students today need very different skills and knowledge than they did a generation ago.” The career ready standards fall under Torlakson’s ongoing Career Readiness

Initiative. Over the past year, other steps forward under the initiative have included: • Administering the Career Pathways Trust, a $250 million grant program designed to support programs that build seamless pathways between schools, higher education, careers, and provide businesses with skilled workers. • Putting into place sweeping updates to California’s career technical education standards to reflect the changing face of technology and setting higher academic goals. • Working with 63 school districts in an inaugural Linked Learning pilot program, which examines how this approach—which combines rigorous academics with technical training and work-based learning— can succeed and be replicated. For more information on the Standards for Career Ready Practice and other programs within the Career Readiness Initiative, please visit the California Department of Education’s CTE Model Curriculum Standards Web page.

Decision 2014: Sierra Madre Municipal Election is April 8 On Tuesday evening, Sierra Madre residents had a chance to get to know the candidates during the League of Women Voters’ Candidate Forum at City Hall. Last week we focused on Noah Green and Denise Delmar This week we are featuring the final two of the four candidates Gene Goss and Rachelle Arizmendi for three open seats on council:

Gene Goss makes another pitch for Sierra Madre city council by shel segal

Gene Goss walked the entire city of Sierra Madre while running for Sierra Madre City Council in 2012. Two years later, he’s walked it again. Goss, a longtime political science professor at Long Beach City College, said he is walking the streets of Sierra Madre for one of the three vacant council seats because it is just something he has to do in life. “I feel a sense of responsibility, a sense of duty,” Goss said. “Our town is at a crossroads and we have to do a number of things to keep it the way it is or it could go in different directions the city doesn’t want.” Goss added as a civics professor he also needs to practice the theory he’s been teaching all these years. “I teach this for a living,” he said. “This is my bag. I have a lifelong interest in government and politics and am very interested in a well-rounded government,

good government that is responsive to people. I give lectures every semester on how government has to be responsive to the people. So, I feel this is my opportunity to step up and do my duty.” Goss said he has been in Sierra Madre for nearly two decades with his son growing up here. He added he wants the future Sierra Madre to look a lot like the current one. “My wife and I want this town to be like this for him, the way it is now,” he said. “I am the best suited for that. I have lived here for almost 20 years. I have raised a child here in town. I think I know the town well and I think I know what people are interested in.” Like most in Sierra Madre, the water issue tops Goss’ list of problems in the city. “The biggest issue right now is infrastructure problems that are years and decades of deferred maintenance,” he said. “We have 19

miles of water mains that are sprouting leaks all over the city and are decaying. Most of them are 90 years old and should have been replaced. But they were just kicking the can down the road.” Another issue Goss is concerned about is the state of public works throughout the city. “If you walk around town you’ll see that our sidewalks are in disrepair,” he said. “Around the corner from my house you don’t have to go too many steps and see cracks. They’ve been patched with pavement. They don’t last long. It’s a cheap fix. A city that calls itself an ‘All American City’ can do better that that.”

Rachelle Arizmendi says 'time is right' for her to be on Sierra Madre city council

A seven-year resident to the city of Sierra Madre having moved here from Monterey, Rachelle Arizmendi said she is running for a seat on the Sierra Madre City Council because “the timing just seemed right for it.” “I’ve always had some civic engagement in me,” she said. “I’ve been on the community services commission for the past five years, which has been great, but I want to be more active, a little bit more proactive.” Arizmendi works for an early childhood non-profit and teaches nutrition at Pasadena City College. She said Sierra Madre was just a jewel of a city to find. “When it came to Sierra Madre there was something about the town,” she said. “I was looking for specific things, like I wanted the coffee shop that I could walk to. I was looking for a place where I could walk my dog 9:30 at night and I can do that.” She added she wants to keep the city the kind of place

that attracted her to it. “I want to be able to maintain what drew us to Sierra Madre, that quality of life,” Arizmendi said. “It is a very special place. It is unique. I don’t even feel I am in Southern California when I am in Sierra Madre.” In order to maintain the way of life that attracted Arizmendi to Sierra Madre, two issues will have to be dealt with: water and development. “Water is the main issue,” she said. “Now we’re in a drought situation. It’s across the state, it’s not just across the town. But the fact that the town has its own water system it’s even more critical we address our water issues.” She said the city needs to continue to bring in water, needs to fix old piping and begin to pay off the debt incurred with the water bonds. “We’ve only been paying interest on our bonds so we got a downgrading a couple months ago,” she said. “We’re to have to start putting money away on our

bonds and start paying back the principal.” As far as development goes, it can probably still happen, she said. “Can our water system and infrastructure sustain additional homes?” Arizmendi said. “It might, but it’s something we need to think about. However, it needs to be done smartly, she added. “When you’re look at how small our town is and there’s a look in our town, we don’t need to build 50,000 houses in a small little area,” Arizmendi said. “We want to make sure we’re smart about that development, that won’t have homes that are too big for their parcels and I think that’s what I’m hearing from a lot of residents, too.”

Mardi Gras 2014 breaks records Congratulations……. With an all time high of 875 in attendance, Methodist Hospital’s 19th annual Mardi Gras also raised a record breaking $144,000 to benefit the hospital’s important cancer program. This year’s event was the most profitable ever, with 37 of the area’s top restaurants providing delicious fare at Sirona’s in beautiful Santa Anita Park on March 4. Restaurants included Benihana, Celestino’s Ristorante & Bar, Hai Diu Lao Hotpot, Green Street Restaurant, La Luna Negara, Matt Denny’s , Sena on Myrtle and Toro Sushi and Bar, just to name a few. California 1980s tribute band The 80z All Stars, provided lively music for dancing and entertainment. The annual Mardi Gras parade featured the King of Mardi Gras, former Methodist Hospital chief of staff and foundations board member Dr. James. Lin. Methodist Hospital President and CEO Dan Ausman recognized Dr. Lin for his longtime support of Methodist Hospital and the outstanding clinical care he has provided to thousands of patients. Also, a special commendation was presented by a representative of Supervisor Michael Antonovich. ”I feel extremely honored, and I want to continue helping the foundation raise funds for the cancer program, which is one of the clinical areas the hospital strives diligently to expand and strengthen,” Dr. Lin said. “It’s important that we remain competitive and on the cutting edge, and Mardi Gras helps us do just that.” Other fun activities of the night included a silent auction and a raffle. Winner of the $1,000 drawing was Robert Bray, a Methodist Hospital employee. Much of the huge success of the event can be attributed to Mardi Gras

Holden bill to give returning vets a voice in community college leadership passes first committee hearing Assemblymember Chris Holden’s (D-Pasadena) legislation to give veterans a stronger voice in college leadership was overwhelmingly approved today in the Assembly Higher Education Committee. AB 1557 has solid, bipartisan support - 14 Democrats and Republicans have coauthored the bill. AB 1557 gives veterans permanent seats on the Board of Governors of the California Community College system by adding a student member who is a veteran or current member of the military. The bill also requires one of the

existing 12 board seats to be held by a member or former member of the Armed Forces who has demonstrated expertise and leadership in the field of veterans’ affairs. “This bill is designed to give veterans a voice in college leadership,” explained Assemblymember Holden. “As we wind down these wars, veterans returning to college face unique challenges and need a voice in their college leadership. If campuses are not prepared to help these soldiers transition from combat to college, we run the risk of alienating

thousands of returning vets.” Thousands of veterans are expected to fill the seats at California’s public colleges and universities. Already the state’s community colleges lead the nation with more than 44,000 vets enrolled – the largest number since World War II. AB 1557 is supported by American Legion California, AMVETS - California, California Association of County Veterans Service Officers, Veterans Caucus of the California Democratic Party, Veterans of Foreign Wars – California.

Sunday, March 16th saw the lawn bowling ladies from around the southland assemble to do battle for the "California Bears" Trophy. There were eight teams of four ladies. The competition runs rather weirdly for those that aren't familiar with lawn bowling. You have four ladies against four ladies. That's a game called "Rinks" or "Fours." That means each bowler only has two bowls to use in the game. They play fourteen ends. When all the bowlers have bowled their bowls, that is called an "End." In Sunday's games they played fourteen ends per game. After the "Rinks" game ended they all had lunch. Had a few minutes to relax then it was time for the second game. This time they split up to take on the other competitors. There was a "Singles" game (one against one).where each bowler had four bowls to use. and the other three team members played a game of "Triples." These ladies only had three

bowls each. After that game the host club served everyone ice cream. Gayle Plunkett, Vice President of the Santa Anita Bowling Green Club was hostess for the event. It was a rather warm day in Arcadia, and the ice cream was a welcome treat. When the brain freezes subsided, the ladies were back on the greens again, playing................. "Pairs" pitting two agains two, for fourteen ends. This was the final game of the day. The bowlers started at 9:00 AM, and now it was after 5:00 PM. That's a full 8 hours of bowling, more or less. When the final game was over and the ladies went to the clubhouse to cool off, Izzie Forbes, the Tournament Director had the wins and losses figured up and the winners were the ladies from Newport Harbor Lawn Bowling Club. They were: Kottia Spangler, Ann Nunes, Dee McSparran and Eva Lee. Each lady received a

square base with a California Brown bear on the top. With four plaques from 2010 through 2013. Now the oldest plaque will be replaced with the newest winners. Next year they will bring those trophies back for the next California Bears Tournament. They competed against Riverside Lawn Bowling Club, Long Beach LBC, San Diego LBC, Long Beach LBC, Santa Barbara LBC, Hemet LBC and next year they will run into the same ladies hunting that elusive Brown Bear Trophy. Santa Anita BGC did not have any entries in this years Tournament. Our best lady bowler, Margi Rambo is with the USA Team in China for the "Tiger Bowls Tournament. They are doing quite well at the time of this writing, winning most of their games. After the "Tiger Bowls" another tournament in China and then its back home. Hopefully with lots of medals (Any color will do). Lawn Bowling is an easy game to learn. All you need

is the desire to learn, flat sole shoes, and an appointment for free lessons. The club will provide the equipment and bowls and instruction. The rest is up to you. To find out more about the Santa Anita Bowling Green Club, go to their web site: www. lawnbowling-Arcadia.com and poke around and see what you can find. You can also go to the e-mail address: lawnbowling4u@yahoo.com. After you check it out, and want to take lessons, call Gene Plunkett at 626-351-5327. Ask questions and set up a time to get going in lawn bowling. It’s FREE. Since the cool season is upon us, there is evening bowling under the lights, and daytime bowling too. Drop by and watch and ask questions on a Saturday morning at 9 AM. There are lots of bowlers wanting to tell you all about this best kept secret the sporting world. Like the motto says: “Lawn bowling is happy times with good friends.”

During the meeting, Whatley said Arcadia should not be allowed to be taking out excess levels of water as that would do damage to the East Raymond Basin, according to the published report. Couple this with the fact that the basin is already

running low due to the drought, which could also hurt Sierra Madre’s future water supply, according to the published report. An attorney Steve Anderson said the boundary that is being debated was just an arbitrary line as a 90-degree angle just to make things simple 70 years ago and it was “never intended to accurately depict the actual, physical sub-basin boundary,” according to the published report.

11th Annual African American Women’s Conference

Denise OT E• Delmar for Sierra Madre City Council

“Dare to Dream… ” Saturday, March 29, 2014

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Pasadena Alumnae Chapter will host its 11th Annual Young African American Women’s Conference (YAAWC) on Saturday, March 29, 2014 at Pasadena City College, 1570 East Colorado Blvd., from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Registration is online at http://yaawc2014.eventrbrite.com/ . Early registration closes March 17, 2014. Ellen Ligons, President of the Pasadena Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. said, “As we begin the second century of our illustrious sorority, the Pasadena Alumnae Chapter is committed to continuing the dream of our Founders, which is to transform lives by promoting academic excellence and impacting our communities in a positive way. The YAAWC is designed to do just that. Our Founders “Dared to Dream,” and we are working to ensure that their dream comes true. The 2014 confer-

ence theme is: “Dare to Dream…” which is designed to inspire young women to pursue their dreams. The program includes a keynote address from Monet Bagneris, founder of Monet Cares, an organization that provides resources, training, and education to needy families in order to eliminate any disparities and expand knowledge of how to live a healthy lifestyle, eleven workshops designed to help the participants make wise choices for their future success, a closing address by Kelley Williams who tells of her struggle answering the question “What is Blackness,” and Twin of a Kind who will close the conference with a “Let’s Move” activity inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama. Exhibitors for the conference include the City of Pasadena Public Health Department, UCLA Early Academic Outreach Program, A Dream Inc. Stepping in the Right Direction,

Schooling Talent, YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley and many more. Registration is $7 per student, and there is no-charge for parents participating in the parent-focused workshops. Participants will enjoy a breakfast and lunch at the YAAAWC. Pasadena City College, Kaiser Permanente, Panda Express, Assemblyman Chris Holden, Southern California Gas Company, Tournament of Roses, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. - Eta Lambda Omega Chapter, YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley, Jackie Robinson community Center and Pasadena Unified School District, Pasadena Delta Foundation, and Pasadena/ San Gabriel Valley Journal Newspaper are among those who have, partnered with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority to make this public service event a success. For more information, contact Conference Chair Debra Ward-Samad at (323) 228-3037.

Denise Delmar and her husband Steve were considering a move from the San Francisco Bay Area to Southern California when they stumbled into Sierra Madre. “It was a hot day in July 2006, and we were looking for a place to buy a cold bottle of water. We decided that day we wanted to make this beautiful community our home.” Professionally, Denise is a human resources executive in the healthcare industry, and has been a leader in public and community service her entire adult life. She became involved in Sierra Madre upon arriving here as a resident on the Committee to “Save Mater Dolorosa,” and the Sierra Madre General Plan Update.

Sierra Madre General Plan Update Every city in California is required to have a general plan; a blueprint for establishing goals, policies, zoning, and activities allowed, ensuring compatibility and continuity to the entire region. In 2009 the City Council formed a Steering Committee to update Sierra Madre’s 1996 General Plan, and Denise Delmar was elected Committee Chair. The Steering Committee completed their work in May 2013, and now the proposed plan will move through a review by the Planning Commission, then adoption by the City Council, an environmental impact report, and finally submission to California State officials for final approval. As a City Council member, Denise will champion bringing the new General Plan to final fruition. “Each item in the General Plan meets one or more of the five parts of the Sierra Madre Vision and Guiding Principles,” Denise explains. “I feel those are strong and should be followed by every Council Member now and into the future.”

Sierra Madre Community Vision and Guiding Principles 1. Preserve and sustain Sierra Madre’s distinctive character as a historic town nestled in the foothills, but within a major metropolitan area. 2. Ensure that Sierra Madre is a safe vibrant place to live, work and visit, providing city services that match the needs of the community and promote community engagement. 3. Protect and be responsible stewards of the neighboring San Gabriel Mountain foot hills wildlife, forest, open space, watershed and all other natural resources. 4. Promote and develop a strong diversified local economy and a thriving town center, consistent with the needs of the community. 5. Ensure development is done in harmony with its neighborhood, while maintaining the character of the town and without unduly burdening existing city services and infrastructure or impacting the environment.

A vote for Denise Delmar on April 8 is a vote to ensure the updated General Plan is adopted, and that Sierra Madre continues to be a vibrant and beautiful and historic city with a thriving and engaged community.

A

three-story, California colonial home complete with pool house and a lovely, remodeled pool rests on two acres of sprawling gardens with breathtaking views. And a beautiful, twostory Spanish-style home built in 1929 boasts impeccable, manicured gardens in front while intricate, lattice-like brickwork lines the driveway, leading to an intimate entertaining area, including a cozy fire pit and Spanish tiled patio overlooking the pool.

Arcadia High School student aces ACT exam

-Courtesy Photos

Earning the top score on the ACT College Admission and Placement Exam is achieved by less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the test. Arcadia High School junior Kevin Chou was one of the few to achieve this rare feat. “We have some of the best and brightest students in the country in Arcadia working with exceptional teachers, and yet my staff and I do not recall any other students in recent history who have accomplished this,” said Dr. Brent Forsee, Principal of Arcadia High. “It’s very impressive, and we are really happy for Kevin. He’s a great kid and a pleasure to be around.” Chou earned the highest possible composite score of 36 on the ACT. Among students in the high school graduating class of 2013, only 1,162 of 1.8 million earned the top score. “I was definitely nervous when I checked my score online,” explained Chou. “But fortunately I was pleasantly surprised and relieved because now I’m done with my college entrance exams.” Kevin has maintained a 4.0 grade point average since 9th grade. In his spare time he enjoys reading reports about the airline industry and its finances. He is also a standout on the speech and debate team, the treasurer of the Student Council Apache Commission, a volunteer tutor who helps local middle school students as a part of the Peer Tutoring and Outreach Program, a volunteer for the city of Arcadia’s Recreation Department, and the

captain of the junior varsity tennis team. Before attending Arcadia High, Kevin was a standout student at First Avenue Middle School, where he currently enjoys volunteering as a tutor, and he attended Baldwin Stocker Elementary School. Both are also schools within the Arcadia Unified School District. This is the second such remarkable academic achievement for a student at Arcadia High this school year. Nathan Chou, a senior, learned of his rare perfect score on his Advanced Placement Calculus Exam in November. Of the nearly 4 million AP exams taken in 2013, Chou was one of just 11 students in the world who reached perfection on the AP Calculus BC Exam. That particular exam was taken by more than 104,000 students, meaning also less than one-tenth of one percent of test takers achieved perfection. The ACT consists of tests in English, math, reading, and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores.

Eighth Annual Norooz in Pasadena a shining example of peace and harmony

-Photo by Terry Miller

Norooz in Pasadena, a project of Narooz, Inc., a non-secular celebration of the Persian New Year and beginning of Spring, has become more than an annual tradition in the San Gabriel Valley. And now, for the eighth year in a row, under the caring hands of Norooz in Pasadena founder Dr. Nazee Rofagha, DC, who maintains both Family Chiropractic Wellness Center and a residence here, celebrated and promoted Iranian arts and its rich culture along with the non-Iranian community last week.

This year’s festivities included live entertainment including a traditional Iranian percussion performance by Erfan Nazemzadeh with Flamenco guitarist Amir Mafakher. The evening highlights also included a dance performance by Djanbazian Dance Academy and Iranian Visual Artists exhibit their latest art work. Eden Garden catered the event with a delicious assortment of appetizers while the Traditional Persian Tea House serves tea and sweets. Norooz Master of Ceremonies was, as always… Nat Nehdar, Chair, Pasadena

Human Relations Commission with Dr. Ezat Parnia, President, Pacific Oaks College serving as the Keynote Speaker. Norooz was officially recognized several years ago by the United States Congress following the introduction of The Norooz Resolution by Congressman Mike Honda (D-CA), stating “Norooz embodies the principle that each individual’s thinking, speaking, and conduct should always be virtuous. It promotes compassion for our fellow human beings irrespective of ethnicity or religion.”

basis. As heavily armed officers approached the quad in Temple City High Monday morning they were met with multiple rounds of ‘simmunitions’ (which are essentially paint balls on a 9mm shell). No live ammunition was in use at any time. In fact, the officers went through extensive briefings and checks before they were allowed to participate in the exercise. Officers deployed smoke bombs in an effort to thwart any further attacks from four heavily

armed men who were shooting in the school. At one point Special Enforcement Officers (SWAT) officers were called in with a Bearcat as their protection and did a door to door check while evacuating students from classrooms after they determined the area was safe. Paramedics were brought in to treat and transport the wounded all the while being protected by numerous police officers. Meanwhile officers

were finding and securing areas around the school and took down the four heavily armed suspects. Scenarios such as the one held Monday happen approximately monthly in Los Angeles County. As one officer said, “you can never train enough for one of these kinds of situations…we all learn a great deal from these exercises.” Teachers and admin staff agreed and thanked the officers and firefighters for their dedication to public safety.

Pasadena knocks out Montebello 7-4 By SHEL SEGAL The Pasadena High baseball team overcame a two-run deficit with a threerun fourth inning and went on to beat visiting Montebello High, 7-4, on Friday in a nonleague game. Trailing, 3-1, the Bulldogs led off the bottom of the fourth with three singles and a double, which gave Pasadena a 4-3 lead going into the bottom of the seventh. Now leading, 5-3, designated hitter Niko Lopez hit a 0-1 fastball off Montebello starter Richard Aparicio over the left field fence for a two-run home run to put the game out of reach for the Bulldogs. “I was just looking for a fastball, just looking for something to get (teammate Andrew Lathouwers) in,” Lopez said. “But that worked.” Pasadena coach Mike Parisi was very thrilled with Lopez’ big hit. “Niko had a big, big clutch home run to give us that seventh run, because we need every run we could

get because these guys are going to quit,” he said. Parisi was also proud of the team’s pitching staff. “Trent Buchanan was his first start and I thought he did alright for his first start,” Parisi said. “Nick Mostacero came in and did a nice job to get his second win. And Frankie Garriola did what he had to do to get his third save. It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t pretty. But he did what he had to do and made that pitch to get the double play at the end.” In getting the win and improving his record to 2-0, Mostacero threw 1 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing just one hit. Aparicio took the loss to fall to 1-2. He pitched five innings, allowing four runs on six hits, while striking out five and walking one, Parisi added he knew the Bulldogs were running into some very stiff competition in Montebello as both teams entered the game with 3-1 records. “I knew this game

wasn’t going to be easy,” he said. “Montebello has a good program and they’re well coached. We need to come out, but I thought we came out flat a little early. But we did a really nice job responding. We need to know how to respond when we have bad innings. They had a 3-1 lead and we did a good job responding to take the lead, 4-3.” Montebello coach Manny Arana said he felt his team really hung in there against Pasadena. “That’s one of the characteristics of our team,” Arana said. “We battle all 21 outs from start to end and it kind of showed today. We were one or two hits away at the end from kind of putting them on their heels. But we hit it hard right at the shortstop at the end and that’s kind of how baseball plays.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com. Follow him via Twitter @segallanded.)

La Torre (brother of ousted councilman Mario De La Torre) and resident Gloria Sorenson initiated the investigation. Harrington said that in his new role as Mayor he hopes to “ Bring the community together and I prefer to discuss this matter (the investigation) in public.” The report was the latest in the more than yearlong saga of controversy stemming from the election, in which challengers Jason Pu and Chin Ho Liao ousted incumbents David Gutierrez and Mario De La Torre. Incumbent Kevin Sawkins, who ran as a team with De La Torre and Gutierrez, was the only incumbent to retain his seat. The council hired CORE Investigations and Polygraph for $30,000 last July to look into six complaints filed after the election that alleged voters saw poll workers telling residents to vote for Pu and Liao in at least three polling places.

The firm released a 16-page report Wednesday after nine months of investigation. The allegations of poll worker misconduct were only the beginning of the controversy surrounding the election. A resident complaint alleging Liao didn’t live within city limits launched a courtroom-style hearing after which Liao was ultimately seated, after two months of community turmoil and $140,000 in city costs. The final election report by CORE cites a number of defects in the election process that were not outlined in the initial complaints nonetheless were discovered during the investigation.

Arcadia's mail-in election Continued from page 1

attempt to collect mail-in ballots for the upcoming April 8 election in Arcadia by a young man identified only as an Asian teenager approximately 16 years of age who was knocking on doors in the 1700 block of Alta Oaks and asking residents if he could collect their election ballots and mail them for them. Arcadia Weekly spoke with candidate for council, Sho Tay on Wednesday regarding this matter to see what his thoughts were. ShoTay told this newspaper that 2 years ago voter turnout was so low that he wanted to encourage people to vote in this election for a better balance. “After some suggestion from my campaign staff , I enlisted the help of students from the Democratic Club at Arcadia High School to offer residents of Arcadia stamps for the mail in postcard. It was all quite innocent and done with the best of intentions.” “We (the campaign staff) did a survey and found out that many people didn’t even know how many (stamps) to put on a ballot postcard, so we offered to help.” He asserted, “…it was certainly not an attempt to sway the voter in either direction.” The candidate’s intentions, while honorable in objective, caught the attention of local residents and law enforcement when one of the students offered to mail the ballots for the resident. “It’s about people (the election) not the party…I’m a registered Republican,” Sho Tay said in a telephone interview. “We were simply trying to encourage those who might not send in their ballots, to do just that!” We asked Sho Tay if anyone took the students

up on the offer of stamps or the offer to mail the ballots for them. His answer was in the affirmative “Yes, some Arcadians did take stamps and we took (3) ballots to the post office.” Sho Tay has since stopped the practice and will not offer to mail in ballots for residents, nor offer stamps. Arcadia Weekly contacted Chief deputy city clerk/records manager Lisa Mussenden in Arcadia who told us that “ They are looking into the matter…ans as it is an ongoing investigation, we cannot comment further.” Arcadia Police Lieutenant Colleen Flores said the dept. issued an automatic alert to area residents advising residents that in no case will City representatives come to your home and collect election ballots. Regina Ip from the Los Angeles County Regisrar’s office sent us the pertanent laws regarding this issue: Here is the law, as stated in Los Angeles: 18576. Any person who willfully (a) interferes with the prompt delivery of a completed vote by mail ballot application, (b) retains a completed vote by mail ballot application, without the voter’s authorization, for more than three days excluding weekends and state holidays, or by the deadline for return of vote by mail ballot applications, whichever is earlier, or (c) denies an applicant the right to return his or her own completed vote by mail ballot application to the local elections official having jurisdiction over the election, is guilty of a misdemeanor. 18568. Every person is punishable by a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by

imprisonment pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 1170 of the Penal Code for 16 months or two or three years, or by both that fine and imprisonment, who: (a) Aids in changing or destroying any poll list or official ballot. (b) Aids in wrongfully placing any ballots in the ballot container or in taking any therefrom. (c) Adds or attempts to add any ballots to those legally polled at any election by fraudulently putting them into the ballot container, either before or after the ballots therein have been counted. (d) Adds to or mixes with, or attempts to add to or mix with, the ballots polled, any other ballots, while they are being counted or canvassed or at any other time, with intent to change the result of the election, or allows another to do so, when in his or her power to prevent it.

Recycle Used Oil & Filters! Do you change your car’s motor oil? Did you know that used motor oil and oil filters are recyclable? Used oil can be re-refined or processed into new motor oil. Currently only 46% of used motor oil is being recycled, which means 20 million gallons may be illegally entering California’s waterways via stormwater systems, posing a great risk to the environment. One gallon of used oil can contaminate a million gallons of drinking water; polluting our waterways and threatening fish and aquatic life. Prevent pollution; recycle used motor oil and filters!

Are you leading a team that isn’t fully charged up? Does it seem that your team just goes through the day, gets the work done and gets the heck out of there? As a leader you want a skilled team that’s engaged, committed and running on a full tank of enthusiasm. That is, you want an optimally performing team. Optimal team performance just doesn’t happen. First, it takes a wise leader to step back and take a moment to realize that something just isn’t right. Perhaps you’ve noticed that not only isn’t your team using their skills to their full potential, but they don’t seem enthusiastic. Mayve they are getting the basic job done but they’re not going the extra mile and putting all of their skills to use. Their passion also seems absent. It seems their heart just isn’t in it. And that shows in the work. Every leader wants optimal employee performance and engagement. Employees who like their work, enjoy their team members, and have the opportunity to regularly use their talents and skills are generally happy, engaged employees who perform well. Let’s look at some strategies to achieve this. Begin with an individual approach by honing in on the natural skills and talents of your employees. Aim to uncover the kind of work that generates meaning and fulfillment for each

employee and then strive to give them assignments that foster that. For instance, if you know that Katherine enjoys writing, then find ways give her more assignments involving writing. Include her in creating the company’s annual report or in developing policies or editing marketing materials. In addition, it’s always a good idea to simply ask employees what kind of work they find meaningful. Once you’ve asked, then collaborate together on a plan to incorporate that work in their every day job. Relinquish decision making. Effective teams not only perform important work they are also trusted to make weighty decisions. When teams are not empowered to make decisions they feel handcuffed and untrusted. As a leader, you can reverse this by giving over certain decisions to them. This will show that you trust them and have faith in their abilities. Handing over the reins though, doesn’t have to mean you let go completely. You may want to give them some guidelines, have them provide you with periodic updates and keep you apprised of outcomes. Infuse innovation into your team. Employees thrive in creative and innovative environments. Encourage employees to challenge the status quo, come up with seemingly outrageous ideas and pose “what if” scenarios at every turn. The next time you

and your team are trying to solve a problem, don’t just jump on the first plausible answer. Instead, challenge your team to come with the multiple “right” answers - - times 10! Use different techniques to generate creativity like holding a meeting outside, posing the problem as a benefit or doing a visioning exercise. Say “thank you.” Say it every day. Make it a point to go up to an employee to thank them for something they did. Be specific about their contribution and the impact it made. For instance, let Ken know that you appreciate him completing the market analysis so quickly because that helped you prepare for a client meeting. Expressing appreciation makes employees feel noticed, that you care and that the work they do makes a difference. Creating a work environment where employees perform meaningful work, are trusted with decision making, innovation is applauded and appreciation is regularly expressed are strategies that can optimize team performance.

YMCA’s LIFT Program supported by Southern California Edison In January Southern California Edison donated $5,000 to the YMCA LIFT program. LIFT stands for “Learning Independence For Transition,” and the YMCA welcomes the 1822 year old adults with special needs to exercise and volunteer at their facilities. “SCE has always been supportive of the YMCA, because it supports young people and their families,” said SCE Public Affairs Region Manager, Marissa Castro-Salvati. “We donated $5,000 to YMCA to keep their programs sustainable.” SCE focuses on providing electricity along with the best customer service to improve quality of life for the Alhambra community. They support YMCA as a customer and through contributions, which allows the relationship to continuously grow. Collaboration between LIFT and YMCA began two years back when LIFT was working on their organic gardens project. Valarie met the students and participated in building the gardens. She extended an invitation to the transition teachers and their 18-22 year old students with special needs to exercise at the YMCA. “The LIFT adults come to the YMCA once a week and choose their activities,” said LIFT Transition Teacher, Kathleen Doyle. “YMCA staff helps them use weight machines,

play team sports, participate in group exercise classes, and volunteer to improve the YMCA programs.” YMCA staff is welcoming and encouraging. The 25 students in LIFT benefit from the YMCA program, because they feel more capable and confident. It also increases their interest in healthy activities and exercise. The students are given lifestyle and job skills in the YMCA’s LIFT program until they are 22. The students volunteer twice a week to learn skills like cleaning the building and raking leaves. Future opportunities will include data entry and answering phones to maximize their potential as they transition into independent adulthood. “LIFT students have another place to call home, because of relationship with the YMCA staff,” said LIFT Transition Teacher, Kathleen Victory. Partnership with YMCA has truly shown the abilities of LIFT students. The hope is that the community will also embrace adults with special needs and see their value. “Our students come in with respect and they understand that their membership at the YMCA is a gift,” said Mrs. Doyle. The relationship with LIFT started through exercise routines and has been able to expand thanks to

the generosity of Southern California Edison. Many other sponsors have also helped to uplift programs at the YMCA including: Alhambra Unified, Wondries Automotive, Republic Services, Dwight Titus, and Rose Hills. This past year LIFT students also attended the YMCA Celebrity Waiter’s Luncheon, which was personally sponsored by Marissa CastroSalvati. LIFT students are welcome to take advantage of the facilities any time, not just during their regularly scheduled program hours. The tailored exercise programs for LIFT students are also open to the general public. “We provide full inclusion and give the same treatment to the LIFT students as all of our other members,” said Ms. Gomez. “When we teach and model inclusion the world becomes a better place, because we’re not focusing on differences. YMCA focuses on healthy youth and adult development across the board. We're living our legacy of social responsibility.” The YMCA of West San Gabriel Valley is located at 401 E. Corto in Alhambra. They are open from 5:30 a.m. — 9 p.m. Monday — Friday, and 8 a.m. — 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Visit them online at www. wsgvymca. org for additional program information.

Girl Scout Troop 5141 plants ten trees in Live Oak Park by Ashley Keelin

A few months ago our brownie leaders were talking to me and the other girls in my troop about how a good girl scout should be helpful and do things to help our community. Even though we are little doesn't mean that we can't do big things. In our brownie book we were asked to write how we can make a change for good in our community. I had the idea right away to plant trees in Live Oak Park. I had this idea because I just finished playing AYSO soccer at Live Oak Park and every one at the games would get sooo hot because there is only shade on one side of the soccer field. So I had the idea of planting trees on the other side of the field so we could have some more shade to cool off. At my next Girl Scout meeting I told my tree idea to one of my leaders named Ms. Theresa. She liked my idea so we talked about it with the other girls in my Troop. Many of my friends also play soccer and we all agreed that planting trees would make a difference.

My mom and Ms. Theresa went to talk to Ms. Cathy Burroughs who is in charge of the Temple City Parks. She said she liked our idea too. She said that our Troop should go to a City Council meeting to tell them about how more trees at Live Oak Park would make it a better place. When we went there to practice we got to use the microphone, we got to sit in the mayors chair, and it was a lot of fun. When it came time for the real city council meeting I was a little scared at first but we told them about our idea and they ap-

proved it. Our Troop worked with Cathy Burroughs and she and the City said they would donate 5 trees if our troop was able to donate 5 additional trees. A local nursery was generous to help our troop and donated 5 red oaks. On Arbor day, March 12, 2014, our Girl Scout Troop planted the new trees with the help of city staff at Live Oak Park near the tennis courts. I hope you get a chance to see them and I hope someday we can all get a chance to enjoy their shade.

I didn’t believe my doctor when he said…

“Nothing More Can Be Done” 83 year old Steven Selway of Mission Viejo, CA, a retired manager of a decorating center for home builders, received bad news about his faltering eyesight. He was suffering from Macular Degeneration, and his doctor said there was no treatment or cure. The thought of not being able to read or watch TV was very upsetting. Then Dr. Richard J. Shuldiner of Low Vision Optometry of Southern California provided the solution. After a brief initial telephone interview, Steven Selway made an appointment. After a complete LOW VISION EXAM, Dr. Shuldiner fitted him with custom-designed FULL DIAMETER TELESCOPE lenses for reading and watching TV, and a pair of E-SCOOP glasses for improved general vision. “Now I can watch TV and read the newspaper, and I can recognize faces. It’s wonderful.”

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Macular Degeneration (ARMD), Diabetic Retinopathy, or any vision reducing condition, call Dr. Shuldiner. Even if you’ve been told “Nothing more can be done,” Dr. Shuldiner may have the answer to your prayers.

Life Remembered Emma Theresia (Koch) Petermann Emma Theresia Koch was born on April 12, 1917 in Gerabronn, Germany. She was the only daughter of Theresia and Joseph Koch. Their son, Joseph Jr. had been born thirteen years earlier. Emma enjoyed the typical, idyllic childhood to be found in a small town in Southern Germany. In 1927, she said farewell to her best friend Clara as her parents had decided to emigrate to the U.S. The family settled in Chicago. Emma loved school and quickly learned to speak English. At the age of fifteen, Emma had to drop out of high school and go to work in order to help support her struggling parents. Feeling sorry for his little sister, Joe took her along to a dance at the local German club. There she met Bruno Petermann and it was love at first sight. They married two years later in 1934. Their children, Hedy and Dietrich, were born in 1934 and 1938. The family built their dream home in Palatine, Il. Bruno and his older brother owned a beauty salon in nearby Evanston. Bruno served in the Army for two years during WW2 while Emmy, as everyone called her, took over on the home front. The family relocated to Southern California in 1948. They lived in the San Fernando Valley until moving to Arcadia in 1956. After her children were grown, Emmy went to work as the office manager for X-Ray Products and, later, worked as a receptionist at A.S. Rogers, a tax preparation office. She loved this job, working there until she was nearly ninety years old. When her four grandchildren came along, Emmy found her greatest passion. Being their Omi (grandma in German slang) became her life. She and Bruno (Opi) spent as much time as possible with their grandchildren. Their joy was just to let the children have fun. Emmy

and Bruno also loved to travel. They explored many national parks, sailed to Europe for visits with family and traveled to Hawaii.

After Bruno passed away in 1989, Emmy stayed busy by continuing to work, volunteering at Methodist Hospital and by making a whole new group of friends through her grief support group. The “Corrupts”, as they came to be known, were fixtures on the Arcadia social circuit. Emmy also loved to go to Santa Anita Racetrack. She was a member of the Arcadia Women’s Club and the Republican Women’s Club. She loved to attend services at Our Savior Lutheran and had been an active member for over forty years. Perhaps those who knew her best will remember her keen sense of humor

ability to dance well into her 90’s and passion for a drop of Chardonnay from time to time. Emmy also had pride of place in Sierra Madre to watch the July 4 parade without fail every year. Emmy was preceded in death by her son, in 1996, and her daughter in 2013. Emmy had been a vital, independent person until quite late in life, even driving until the age of ninety-five. She is survived by her devoted grandchildren, Kurt Hoover, Kira Deputy, Kristin Medina and Matthew Petermann. She also has three precious greatgrandchildren, Madysen Petermann, Adeleine Petermann and Devon Medina. In addition, Emmy has a dear daughter-in-law, Sharon Jergens, and two dear sons-in-law, Brian Deputy and Richard Medina. She also has many cherished nieces and nephews throughout the U.S. and Germany. Emmy has been laid to rest next to her beloved Bruno at Live Oak Memorial Park in Monrovia, CA. A memorial service is scheduled for March 22 at 11:00 AM at Our Savior Lutheran Church, 512 W. Duarte Rd. Arcadia. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to the Methodist Hospital Foundation and the Los Angeles Arboretum Foundation.

Distressed housing market shrinks dramatically since housing downturn of Great Recession Vastly improved home prices over the past five years have changed the landscape of California’s distressed housing market, which is now just a fraction of what it was during the Great Recession, the ARCADIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (A.A.R.) said today. In January 2009, 69.5 percent of all homes sold in California were distressed, which includes short sales and real estateowned (REOs) properties. Five years later, that figure has shrunk to 15.6 percent. More specifically, REOs comprised 60 percent of all sales in January 2009, while short sales made up 9.1 percent of all sales but rose to as high as 25.6 percent in January 2012. Short sales currently make up 9.2 percent of all sales. During the same time period, California’s median home price has soared more than 64 percent from $249,960 in January 2009 to $410,990 in January 2014.

“The dramatic drop in the share of distressed sales throughout the state reflects a market that is fully transitioning from the housing downturn,” said 2014 A.A.R. President Mike Vachani. “Significant home price appreciation over the past five years has lifted the market value of many underwater homes, and as a result, many homeowners have gained significant equity in their homes, resulting in fewer short sales and foreclosures.” The statewide share of equity sales hit a high of 86.4 percent in November 2013 and has been above 80 percent for the past seven months. In some of the hardest hit California counties, the distressed market in January 2009 was 93.6 percent in Stanislaus County, 93 percent in San Joaquin County, 89.5 percent in San Benito County, 86.1 percent in Kern County, 85.6 percent in Sacramento County, 84.2 percent in Fresno

County, and 83.6 percent in Monterey County. The distressed market now has shrunk to 24.8 percent in Stanislaus, 25.1 percent in San Joaquin, 17.5 percent in San Benito, 18.4 percent in Kern, 19.9 percent in Sacramento, 26.3 percent in Fresno, and 16.9 percent in Monterey counties. Of the reporting counties, San Luis Obispo, Orange, Santa Clara, and San Mateo counties held the lowest share of distressed sales in January 2014 at 10.2 percent, 9.5 percent, 7.7 percent, and 6.8 percent, respectively. Representing local Realtors® in the San Gabriel Valley for 90 years, the ARCADIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (www. TheAAR.com) is one of the oldest trade organizations in CA. The AAR is dedicated to the advancement of professionalism in real estate and is an advocate for private property rights. A.A.R. is headquartered in Arcadia.

Purse snatching while gassing up new crime There is a new crime trend taking place nationwide called "Sliders." These thieves are evasively sliding into victim's cars and snatching valuables through open windows and unlocked doors, in what police are calling "sliding." Thieves often operate at gas stations while customers are causally pumping gasoline. When the opportunity arises, thieves snatch purses and other valuables

before fleeing the scene. A vehicle is not a secure location for your property. Criminals are targeting all parts of town while watching for women who leave their purses unattended, leave the vehicle doors unlocked and are distracted. While the woman focuses on the gas pump, the criminal crouches down, opens the passenger's side door and grabs her purse. The entire crime takes only a few

seconds. That's a "slider" at work. To prevent these thefts, Law Enforcement is encouraging women to keep their purse out of sight, or take their purse with them when they pump gas and always monitor any unlocked doors. Click on the below link to watch a news clip regarding this new criminal activity called "sliders."

POLICE BLOTTERS Arcadia PD

Sunday, March 9: Just after 3:20 a.m., an officer on DUI patrol conducted an enforcement stop on a vehicle for several traffic violations in the area of Live Oak Avenue and Las Tunas Drive. As the officer approached the vehicle, he observed the driver and passenger attempting to exchange seats while the vehicle was still in gear. One of the subjects moved the steering wheel causing the vehicle to drive forward and strike a cement planter and wall of an apartment complex. An investigation revealed the 19-year-old Chinese male driver and 19-year-old Chinese female passenger were under the influence of alcohol. Both subjects were arrested for DUI and transported to the Arcadia City Jail for booking. At approximately 9:21 a.m., an officer responded to a residence in the 1500 block of Louise Avenue regarding a burglary report. Unknown suspect(s) forced entry through a rear door and fled undetected with cash. No evidence or witnesses were located. Monday, March 10:

At about 5:27 p.m., an officer responded to a residence in the 600 block of South Third Avenue regarding a battery report. An investigation revealed a resident confronted an unknown male subject who was sitting inside a vehicle across the street from his house for over one hour. The subject became upset and pushed the resident multiple times before fleeing the location. The 44-year-old Asian male was located and arrested in the 900 block of Diamond Street and transported to the Arcadia City Jail for booking. He is being charged with Battery, DUI, and Evading a Peace Officer. Just after 6:00 p.m., an officer was dispatched to the Arcadia Police Department front counter regarding a fraud investigation. The victim discovered unknown suspect(s) charged over $13,000 on her Discover credit card. She was in possession of her credit card at the time of the report and had no idea how her information was compromised. Tuesday, March 11: Around 3:28 a.m., officers responded to an apartment complex in the 800 block

of Arcadia Avenue regarding a prowler report. The victim walked into his restroom and discovered an unknown male subject peeking through the window. Officers searched for the subject who fled the area on foot, but he was not located. The subject is described as a young White or Asian male with short hair, wearing baggy blue jeans and an unknown type of shirt. Just before 7:00 a.m., an officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for expired registration in the area of Santa Anita Avenue and the 210 freeway. The officer discovered the driver had an expired license. The 34-yearold Hispanic male was cited for the listed charges, released in the field without incident, and his vehicle was left legally parked. Wednesday, March 12: At approximately 10:00 a.m., an officer responded to the Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, regarding three Hispanic male juveniles vandalizing a wall with graffiti. An investigation revealed the suspects were in possession of graffiti tools, lighters, and marijuana. All

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.

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.

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.

St. Patrick’s Day DUI crackdown nets 571 arrests in L.A. County The St. Patrick’s Day DUI Mobilization crackdown on drinking drivers resulted in a significant number of DUI arrests from the sobriety checkpoints, special saturation patrols and routine patrols in Los Angeles County over this past weekend. From 12:01 a.m. Friday, March 14 through midnight last night, officers representing 100 county law enforcement agencies arrested 571 individuals for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Law enforcement officials will be conducting more “Avoid the 100” DUI operations during Cinco de Mayo, Memorial Day weekend holiday and 4th of July. Police, Sheriff and the CHP encourage motorists to help law enforcement every day: Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1 anytime you encounter an impaired driver. DUI checkpoints, along with regularly scheduled high visibility DUI enforcement operations, are proven strategies for removing

impaired drivers from the road and heightening awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, sobriety checkpoint programs can yield considerable cost savings: $6 for every $1 spent. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Wistaria Festival Continued from page 1

went well over the Saturday and Sunday gathering. “We had more than 100 vendors this year,” she said. “There were over a dozen food vendors. The weather couldn’t be better. Sunshine, a little breeze, no rain.” Henderson said the weather was a factor in a good way for the first time in several years with the event. “It’s the first year in the last four years we went into the festival knowing we were going to have good weather,” she said. Henderson also said the festival is meant to boost business for everyone involved. “We had all kinds of crafters,” she said. “This

event has two purposes. Number one is to bring new visitors into town, see our gorgeous little town, see the vine and come to our little shops. The second is to is make sure the crafters who are here don’t compete with our local merchants. So, all of the vendors that you see here have handcrafted, unique type of things.” And the items sold are very different at the Wisteria Festival, Henderson said. “Hand blown glass, aprons made with exotic materials from France, you name it,” she said. Marshmellow shooters. Nobody in town makes them, so that’s kind of unique.”

There was also plenty to listen to, Henderson said. “We had 40 musicians playing (Sunday) in various locations,” she said. “Up at the vine there’s Ron Longo and his harp. That’s a staple. And the bandstand we had quite a few different performers.” And what about the wisteria vine that everyone is so fond about? “The vine is celebrating its 120th birthday,” Henderson said. “And because of all the warm weather the vine started blooming early. There are still blooms on it today and it spans the backyards of two houses.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com). DH_Beacon_030320140-OL.indd 1
