Dorothy's Place The teacher was taught

By Dorothy Denne Have you ever tried to hold a sinkful of corks under water at one time? If you have not, try it. Then you will have some small idea how it feels to stand in front of a group of kids and realize you are the adult who is "in charge." I found myself in that position for 34 years as an elementary school teacher. They were 34 years that passed much too rapidly. They were filled with a mixture of joy and anger, confidence and fear, laughter and tears. There were many children I loved dearly. There were only a very few who, in truth, I did not much care for. I hope they never knew the difference.

Some I have forgotten completely. Others I shall never forget. All were wonderful and special in their own ways and I'm glad we shared our lives. My first year there was red-haired, freckle-faced Gary. He was in first grade and had a story to share during Show and Tell. (Show and Tell by some name has been around as long as there have been schools.) Gary stood to tell his tale. He said, "On Sunday, me and my Mommy went to Metropolitan Beach." In those days it was considered proper to correct children's grammar as they spoke. I softly said, "My Mommy and I went to Metropolitan Beach." His big blue eyes widened as he gleefully questioned, "Oh yeah? You went too?" Same class, different

day, different activity, and different boy - little Danny. The children were drawing self-portraits in preparation for a display we were planning to do for Open House. Things were going pretty well as I moved around the room, giving a little advice here and a little help there. When I came to Danny's desk, his paper was blank and he was crying. I bent down, put my arm around his shoulder and consolingly asked, "Aahh Danny, what's the matter?" He sniffed, wiped his nose on my shoulder and answered, "I doesn't know how I look. I just know how I feel." Think about that one. Perhaps a little unrecognized insight behind those tear-filled eyes? The first-year-teacher was being taught.

Sheriff's race offers unique challengers Dear Editor: My name is Alex Villanueva and I’m a 28 year veteran of law enforcement. Over the years I’ve come to know most of the candidates running for the office of Sheriff for Los Angeles County, and I truly believe my personal experience may help you form your own opinion on who is best fit to be our next sheriff. I’m not one to mince words or hide the truth, and I have the battle scars to attest to that. With one notable exception, I can honestly say that all of the candidates are decent, hard-working individuals who bring their own perspectives and experiences to the race to be the top cop in Los Angeles County. In 2003 I was busy studying for a lieutenant’s promotional examination, which turned out to be the first one overseen by the then newly appointed chief of Administrative Services, Paul Tanaka. While I was burning the midnight oil studying for the written exam and going through grad school, Mr. Tanaka was busy orchestrating what would be the first of many gamed promotional tests for sergeants and lieutenants, in which the outcome was dictated by pay to play politics and patronage. Alarmed at the breadth of the corruption and its implications for the LASD, in 2004 I made my concerns known to Sheriff Baca and his command staff in writing, and paid the price via retaliation. The emails, memoranda, and internal documentation painted a very scary picture of the willingness of Mr. Tanaka to destroy the careers of those who opposed his corrupt ways. Consistent with what has been documented in sworn testimony and the Citizen’s Commission on Jail Violence proceedings, Mr. Tanaka used the promotional system as a means to gain control of the entire organization and eventually became the architect of systemic corruption. When I

attempted to appeal one of the retaliatory acts, I turned to my unit commander at the time for relief, one Todd Rogers. He did not seem interested in hearing my case, and rubber-stamped the result. Mr. Rogers compounded his actions when he told my peer representative to not appear on my behalf at the chief’s hearing if he valued his career, a direct threat. Unfortunately, my experience was not unique, but one suffered by hundreds of honest, hard-working deputies dedicated to public service and fulfilling the goals of the department. I ended up taking that promotional exam 4 times, and got passed over for promotion repeatedly by individuals who had literally flunked the examination process. During this time period I came to know Jimmy Hellmold, and my initial impression of him was that he seemed like a nice guy. Too many assignments at headquarters and fundraising events for Sheriff Baca and Mr. Tanaka turned him into somebody else, a political animal absorbed in his own success and disinterested in the plight of those suffering under the heal of Mr. Tanaka. I had the privilege of working with Bob Olmsted at Lennox Station back in 2000, and my impression of him then was confirmed by all he has done since then – stand up for what is right and challenging the corrupt ways of Sheriff Baca and Paul Tanaka. As a direct result of his efforts, the department now has the opportunity to transform itself into a model agency dedicated to public safety, with a mandate to clean house and rebuild a shattered reputation caused by Lee Baca and Paul Tanaka. I know for a fact Chief McDonnell was approached by many well-intentioned individuals to run against Sheriff Baca and he refused. That was truly disappointing,

because during the CCJV testimony he sat on his hands and refused to ask the sheriff and his undersheriff the hard questions that begged to be answered. That deference to the political establishment does not sit well with me, because that is the same crowd that sheltered the corruption of Baca’s administration for many years. It didn’t take long before McDonnell, Rogers, and Hellmold jumped into the race, and that highlights who they are: Johnny-Come-Latelies looking for another notch on their belts. That is EXACTLY who the next sheriff should not be, a smooth talking opportunist. We’ve been there before. There are a lot of tough issues that need to be resolved, a decade of unchecked corruption, and a lot of hurt that needs to be healed. We need a true leader who is not afraid of making tough decisions, someone who understands the culture of the organization and has a history of caring for it. I was never impressed by the parade of executives wearing their Sam Browns at headquarters, pretending to be veterans of an experience they couldn’t get out of fast enough. Having pushed a radio car for roughly half my career, I tip my hat off to all those who’ve made an entire career out of it. Your sacrifices and successes have been taken for granted far too long. In closing I want to thank Bob Olmsted, Pat Gomez, and Lou Vince for their courage and commitment to reforming the department. For Paul Tanaka and his misguided supporters, it’s time for you to stand down. Put the banners and t-shirts away, because with or without indictments Mr. Tanaka will always be the most divisive and destructive executive the LASD has ever seen. You’ve done enough damage, Paul, for the sake of the community and the department, find some humility to quit the race and call it a day. Alex Villanueva, DPA

tunnels that they will not only yield cleaner water, but also yield twice as much. Fill the Fire Department water truck with water in the settling basins. Capture the water going into the storm drains and fill tanks and use the water to maintain the City's landscape. Fix the one hundred plus sewer breaks so that the black water doesn't pollute our underground. We feel certain that many more ideas can be thought of on this subject. The subject of offering a cap of the U.U.T. on high users of water for non-residential customers is likewise another exercise. Why not eliminate the UJJ.T. period? Why not eliminate the surcharge that the City charges on each gallon that these customers use? Why not charge one rate, based on the true cost, for the residential customers? Why not fix the water mains so that they will not "waste" and use "excessive" water?" The Fire Department gave its report. Is it possible to have a "Volunteer Fire Department", or close to it? What can be done to reduce the costs? Can some of the paid positions be filled by volunteers? The workload could be reduced by not requiring sprinkler systems and making this item voluntary by the property owner. This

would save many calls by the Fire Department over leaks of water from these systems. Lives would also be saved if the people were out of the house before the sprinklers started? Do our firemen need to be trained by some other City? How much does that training cost? Do we really need to fine a person because they have fireworks in the trunk of their cars? What other ways can the Fire Department think of to reduce the financial cost to the people? These subjects only scratch the surface as to what the City Government can do to reduce the burden to the private sector. Many more things can be done if the City would only adopt an attitude of working for the people. If they would only remember that when they are pointing their finger at us, then their other three fingers are pointing at themselves. How many ways does it have to be said to focus on reducing the cost of operation of the city for the benefit of the people that are supposed to be served by the Government? Or simply said, "Clean up your own act before you harm the people". The only immediate choice the people have is "VOTE NO ON THE. UUT ON THE APRIL 8 BALLOT". Sierra Madre Watchman

year I’ve had in 28 years of doing this,” Wells said. “It just continues to be a very strong market with the demand so high and not enough inventory. We’ve seen a lot of multiple offers. For the buyers it can be very frustrating because they’re dealing with all cash offers most of the time.” He also said the market has shifted from where it was a couple of years ago. “It’s definitely a seller’s market,” Wells said. “It was a little softer (two years ago). It just seemed to switch – as it does – on a dime.” Wells’ colleague Donna Baker, who works as an agent in Teles’ Monrovia office, agreed with Wells, adding there just aren’t a lot of deals out there right now. “It has driven up prices, which is good for the sellers at this point,” Baker said. “Buyers still feel like it’s a buyer’s market when

it really is a seller’s market. There are very few distressed properties anymore. People are over water instead of under water again, which is nice.” While she doesn’t want to compare what is going on now to what went on in the last decade, Bakers said all-cash offers are driving up prices in the San Gabriel Valley. “What I see happening right now is things are sort of being artificially inflated because of the all-cash offers that don’t require appraisals,” she said. “When there’s no appraisal required they overpay for the house. It’s sort of a doubleedged sword. It helps sellers with their values, but it also causes problems for conventional buyers that have to get a loan.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

Lifeline for Pets Cat of the Week: "Bossa" and "Donya" BOSSA & DONYA are two beautiful females actually born in Egypt, and brought to the USA in 2013.

In Arcadia one candidate for whom we have considerable respect, felt he had to do something to get people out to vote in what has historically been a very low turnout for municipal elections. In doing so, a police investigation ensued when some residents said they were concerned that Sho Tay was paying for stamps and collecting election ballots for the April 8 council election. We broke the story in our March 20 edition. The 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 the Wednesday following that incident. ShoTay told Arcadia Weekly 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

By Terry Miller 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, at that time said he stopped the practice and will not offer to mail in ballots for residents, nor offer stamps. However, on Tuesday evening we received an email from Shoy Tay saying he was, once again giving away stamps this week. We were surprised - to say the least - that Sho Tay, was once again offering to pay for postage of the ballots and opening himself up to more condemnation. “So far about 3,600 ballots have been cast, out of about 30,000 registered voters. That is only 12%. I believe the more voters, the more voices are heard. Since the beginning of my campaign I have been making every effort to get

more registered voters to participate in this election. No matter who you vote for, it’s important to cast your vote. Some people say the new mail-in ballot process couldn’t be easier — all you have to do is put your ballot in an envelope, put a stamp on it, and put it in your mailbox by this Friday, April 4, or hand deliver it to City Hall by next Tuesday, April 8. I’m going to make it even easier – today I delivered first class stamps to two local businesses to give away to anyone who comes in and requests one for their ballot envelope. No one will ask which candidate you are voting for; no one will even check to make sure you use the stamp for your ballot envelope. It’s the honor system.” –Sho Tay We looked on the calendar when we first received the email: April 1… so we checked one of the two businesses where Sho Tay said he left stamps for anyone to use and they confirmed they did have free stamps for voters, courtesy of Sho Tay. Elections are rarely without controversy. This year is no exception.

Azusa man dies after jumping through window attempting to evade police Los Angeles County Sheriff's Homicide detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of a male adult, which occurred Sunday, March 30th, 2014, in the 800 block of East Pepper Tree Drive, Azusa. Detectives learned that at approximately 3:00 P.M. this afternoon, Azusa Police Department (PD) officers attempted to arrest the 19

year-old male for narcotic warrants, when he ran from them and entered a condominium unit that belonged to a family member. The officers contained the location; however, the suspect bypassed the containment by exiting the second floor of the unit. He ran across rooftops of adjacent condominium buildings, before diving into a second story window of a nearby condominium. Azusa PD then

contained that location, and received information that there were firearms inside. After several failed attempts to make contact with the suspect, Azusa PD's Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team responded to the location. When the Azusa PD SWAT Team later made entry into the location, they found the suspect deceased from apparent injuries sustained during his jump through a window.

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

It takes a neighborhood The saying, “one is a lonely number, but two's company” is often very true when folks are looking to adopt a cat. Rescue organizations and shelters are overloaded. Not only can you save two lives instead of one (having two cats is just as easy as having one), but also the recommended gradual introduction process is a non-issue, since the two cats already get along well with each other. There are many other beneits to adopting two kitties together who are already best buds. Take the case of two rescued semi-feral twin tuxedo kittens, originally called Ivy and Dakota, “The Tux Twins.” Socialization attempts were unsuccessful --they hissed, cowered, and could not be held. Lifeline For Pets had to face the fact that they were not adoptable, fated to live at our cat pad forever, cared for by a rotating crop of dedicated volunteers. One

by Darlene Papa Lifelineforpets.org volunteer spent much time with them, and with patience, Ivy and Dakota began to trust, letting her pet them. The happy ending is that this volunteer adopted them! She realized that their only chance for a forever home was with her, and even though she might never get them to let her hold them, they still deserved a home. Now, Lifeline receives updates on their antics from this doting mom, who says Ivy and Dakota (renamed Jackson) have brought so much joy to her life! Another beneit of adopting two cats together is when one is more dependent on the other. Baby Jane and Baby Delta are both housed at Whiskers To Tails, veterinary offce of Dr. Linda Iburg. Baby Jane's two hind legs are paralyzed and she will never walk. Delta was put with Jane and the two became close friends. You can just

see the trust in little Jane's eyes as she looks upon Delta. Because the two are so bonded, they must stay together. It will be diffcult to and an adopter willing to deal with Jane's special needs, and Dr. Iburg is looking for just the right experienced adopter to come forward. Besides kittens, there are often times when two older cats need to stay together. Such is the case of Emily, age 10, and Quasimodo, age 7. Both of these girls had a loving owner, who adored them. However, the woman had to enter assisted living and could not keep them. The womenʼs family would not take them, and there was no other plan. Emily is a bit more outgoing than Quasi, but it is obvious that they are both traumatized, not understanding why they are no longer with their loving mom. Lifeline is doing our best to rehome and keep them together.

Azusa Residents: Free compost and mulch - April 5 As part of the April Clean and Green Month, the City of Azusa is hosting a free compost and mulch giveaway event to its residents on Saturday, April 5, 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at the parking lot in front of Memorial Park located in 320 N. Orange Place. There will be a limit of 30 gallons per household from 9 am-11 am; and will be unlimited until supplies run out after 11 a.m. Bring sturdy containers or barrels; no plastic or trash bags. This event is self-serve. Proof of Azusa residency will be checked. Compost will be donated by Athens Services

Every month, thousands of homeowners are faced with the stressful dilemma of whether to buy first or sell first. You see, if you buy before selling, you could run the risk of owning two homes. Or, just as bad, if you sell first, you could end up homeless. It’s what insiders in the industry call the Real Estate Catch 22, and it’s an extremely anxious position to be in. This financial and emotional tightrope is one you usually have to walk alone because most agents have no way of helping you with this predicament. But one local realtor is using a unique

Guaranteed Sale Program which solves this dilemma. This program guarantees the sale of your present home before you take possession of your new one. If your home doesn’t sell in 120 days, they will buy it from you themselves for the previously agreed price ensuring that you never get caught in the Real Estate Catch 22. Before you hire any professional, you should research the market to find out who can do the best job for you. When interviewing agents, find out what kind of guarantee they are willing to give you with respect to the selling of your home. Unfortunately, you’ll find PAID ADVERTISEMENT

Temple City High German teacher won’t be saying “Auf Wiedersehen” just yet REPORTER’S NOTE: I met Judy Graunke in 1985 when I was a 13-year-old freshman. I had heard rumors of a teacher who takes you on field trips to Europe and makes you fluent in a foreign language in four years. Well, I luckily was able to travel with the class twice – in 1987 and in 1989 – and could very well hold my own in the German language by graduation. Now, 25 years later, while I have studied additionally on my own from time to time I am still rather fluent (remarkable for someone who has never lived in Europe) and I owe that foundation and much of my love of travel and interest in the world to Judy Graunke. She is an incredible teacher who makes a point to be able to touch students’ lives. And I don’t know where I’d be if she didn’t touch mine. She may have been teaching German for nearly 42 years at Temple City High School, but Judy Graunke is not ready to say “Auf Wieder-

Serving Leaders, Serving Teams A bi-monthly column by Heather Backstrom, Ed.D.

Authenticity is Your Leadership Compass Leading authentically is about being genuine and true to yourself while moving your team and organization forward toward goals. Authentic leadership doesn’t come from a title, a paycheck or a beautiful office. Instead, it comes from being a leader who is genuinely focused on unleashing the talents of others. Let’s consider some characteristics of authentic leaders and how to develop these yourself. Personal and Professional Development: Being dedicated to your own development is fundamental to being an authentic leader. Investing in yourself helps you become a better person and subsequently better a leader. There are many ways to foster your professional and personal development. For instance read an autobiography of a favorite leader, take a class on a topic of interest, participate in a webinar or listen to a podcast. Or each morning before you begin your day set an intention and write it down. At the end of the day reflect on how that intention shaped your day - - how it influenced your actions, interactions, decision making, confidence and so forth. In the next 30 days make it a

point to do at least 3 things to develop yourself personally and professionally. Clear Values: Values are your internal compass that represent your inner rules or principles that guide your actions, behaviors and decisions. Authentic leaders have clear values that they draw upon every day. But, because of pressures or expectations it’s not always easy to stay focused on one’s values. During tumultuous or pressure filled times, the authentic leader relies on their values to stay centered. Being clear on your most essential values will help you navigate the twists and turns of life. Use a values clarification exercise to help you identify your top values. Post them in your office or make them your computers screen saver to keep them visible and to serve as a reminder of your authentic leadership. Results Focused: An authentic leader has a results-oriented drive that comes from a deep desire to make a difference. They are more concerned with the organization’s mission than with their own ego. They are also committed to excellence, rather than perfection, and have the

wisdom to know the difference. Authentic leaders set high standards for themselves and others. What positive difference do you want to make today? How can you drive for results while putting the mission of your team or organization first? Capitalize on Emotions: Authentic leaders lead not just from their mind but from their heart, too. They’re not afraid to show their emotions, be vulnerable or connect with people. This doesn’t mean that they’re soft or a pushover. It simply means that they know how to genuinely relate with people. It also means that their head and heart are well-balanced, allowing both reasoning and emotions to guide them. Authentic leadership is both an art and a skill. It’s something to practice each day. Focus on your development, get clear on your values, make a positive difference through results, and let your mind and heart be in balance. Dr. Heather Backstrom is an executive coach, leadership development consultant and speaker who works with leaders and teams to optimize effectiveness and interpersonal relationships.

Garriola of Pasadena on hitting tear By SHEL SEGAL Pasadena High third baseman Frank Garriola has started the 2014 season on an absolute hitting tear. Through last week, Garriola is hitting a whopping .526 with one home run, 12 RBIs, three doubles and four triples. Garriola said he has changed his approach at the plate and is no longer trying to just pull the ball to left field. “I’m just trying to drive the ball up the middle and forget about the short porch in left field,” said Garriola, a junior. “Try to stay balanced through everything.” Garriola added he’s been working hard to get the numbers he’s putting up now. “I’ve been hitting with my hitting coach for like the past year,” he said. “He’s been helping me. He’s fixed my swing. I changed my stance and widened my base a little bit. Just focused on keeping my head down and driving everything up the middle.” He said he’s also working on his defense at the hot corner. “I’m working on keep-

ing the ball in front, trying not to let anything get past me,” Garriola said. He also said he’s looking to the future with the Bulldogs. “I’m already looking forward to next year and becoming more of a leader and helping our team do well again,” he said. However, he said the team should be able to win the Pacific League championship this season if they can cut out mental mistakes and just stay focused. “This year we should

win it,” he said. “We’re the best team in the area.” Pasadena coach Mike Parisi had words of praise for Garriola. “He’s off to a great start,” Parisi said of Garriola. “He’s doing what he needs to be doing. He’s the leader of our offense. He’s one of the best defensive third baseman I’ve ever coached.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com. Follow him via Twitter @segallanded.)

Investigators following up on a burglary arrest from earlier this month carried out early-morning search warrants Thursday, arresting two more members of an alleged burglary ring, authorities said. The multi-agency West San Gabriel Valley Anti-Crime Task Force and A.B. 109 Team arrested Shawn Ashton Sykes, 21, of Altadena and Koreana Channise Muhammad, 19, of Altadena early Thursday as they performed searched at five locations within Altadena and Pasadena, according to Arcadia police officials and Los Angeles County booking records. Sykes was booked on suspicion of residential burglary, while Muhammad was booked on suspicion of possession of stolen property and being an accessory to burglary, Arcadia police officials said in a written statement. Thursday morning’s searches followed the arrest of Kenneth Wayne James, 21, of Altadena at the scene of March 13 residential break-in in the 1100 block of West Foothill Boulevard. Three suspects were seen fleeing from the burglarized home, but only James was captured, Arcadia police Lt. Bob Anderson said at the time. But the suspects’ car was found abandoned in the area. The car was found to belong to Muhammad, of-

ficials said. She reported it stolen shortly after the bungled burglary on March 13. “Through investigation, the task force Detectives were able to identify all of the suspects, including the female who owns the suspect vehicle, as Pasadena/Altadena Blood gang members,” according tot he police statement. “The Task Force Detectives also uncovered that they were a burglary crew that is suspected of targeting several Arcadia homes in the past year.” Further details of the alleged Arcadia burglaries were not available Thursday. Property recovered during Thursday-morning’s searches yielded suspected stolen property, including a big screen TV reported stolen in a burglary in Los Angeles, police added.

James pleaded “no contest” to a charge of residential burglary during his initial appearance in Pasadena Superior Court on March 17, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Ricardo Santiago said. He received a two-year prison sentenced, which was suspended, along with 90 days in jail, three years of probation and 300 hours of community service, Santiago said. James was released from custody March 19, six days after his arrest, according to Los Angeles County booking records.

An easy and fun way to get involved in Sierra Madre community is to volunteer for a shift at the annual Friends of the Sierra Madre Library Art Fair. Not only do you help the Friends, but you get to see and chat with your Sierra Madre neighbors who visit the Fair. This year’s Art Fair is being held in Memorial Park on Saturday, May 3, 2014 from 9:30am to 6:00pm and Sunday, May 4, 2014 from 9:30am to 5:00pm. Volunteers are needed to act as area hosts and hostesses, to serve at the Friends Booth and the Friends Food Booth, to work at the wine and beer garden, and to work at the Silent Auction. Volunteer shifts are short (two hours) and since

there are so many people coming through, the time passes quickly. Area hosts and hostesses are assigned an area and are responsible for visiting the vendors in the booths in that area to see if they need anything and to sit at their booth if they need to take a break. The Friends Booth is where people can get information about the organization and can buy an Art Fair t-shirt. Brochures explaining what it means to be a member of the Friends will be at the booth and should provide the answer to any questions people have. The Friends Food Booth is where our popular sweet breads are sold. You’ll be very busy there! We’re going to have a Silent Auction again this year and volunteers are

needed to help keep track of the items being auctioned and to explain the bidding process. You’ll be given information that should answer any questions bidders should ask. The wine and beer garden is new this year and we’ll need people to sell tickets, check IDs, attach wristbands, secure the area, and serve the wine and beer. Does volunteering at the Art Fair sound like something you’d like to do? Contact Fran Garbaccio at 355-6536 or by email at fgarbaccio@aol.com. We also need pop ups and if you have one that you’d be willing to loan the Friends for the weekend, please contact Janet Emery at 355-6499 or by email at jkemery20@gmail,com.

Water conservation bill clears first committee as drought looms Assemblyman Mike Gatto's legislation would find new funding stream for water efficiency

A key water-conservation bill introduced by Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Los Angeles) passed the Assembly Water, Parks, and Wildlife Committee today by a vote of 13-0. AB 2636 establishes CalConserve, a revolving-loan program to provide loans to home owners and businesses to help finance water-efficiency projects. The program will reduce urban, per-capita water use and help cities and counties reach their wateruse reduction goals. Conserving water has long been a goal of California policymakers, but with the state in the midst of a disastrous drought, conserving precious water resources has never been more important. For the first time in history, water exports to Central Valley farms and Southern California homes have fallen to zero. Crops are dying, cities are running out of drinking water, and streams are running dry. The drought is even forcing children in the Central Valley to leave school, as their parents are forced to abandon drought-scorched crops in search of work elsewhere. “The technology already exists to save millions

-Photo by Terry Miller

of gallons of water, but the infrastructure of our homes and businesses needs to be updated,” said Gatto. “This legislation would provide funds for homeowners and businesses to make watersaving infrastructure upgrades.” Gatto’s bill authorizes the Department of Water Resources to administer a state revolving-fund program that will be a selfrenewing source of funding for water-use efficiency. By helping private entities pay the upfront infrastructure costs of installing water-efficiency technology, CalCon-

serve will allow more homeowners and business to save water. As they begin seeing savings on their water bill, these private entities will pay the infrastructure loan back to CalConserve. “California can save water without asking taxpayers to spend a single dime,” noted Gatto. “Instead of giving away limited state resources in grants to pay for retrofits, we can help people pay the upfront costs and let them pay us back slowly from their water-bill savings.” AB 2636 now moves to the Assembly Appropriations Committee.

Monitoring station to measure PM10 from Vulcan Mining activity to be unveiled April 5 Public will be able to view real-time data on AccessDuarte.com webpage An air quality monitoring station installed adjacent to Valley View School to keep tabs on any unhealthful PM10 particulate matter emanating from Vulcan Materials mining activity above Duarte will be unveiled to the public on April 5. Michael Cacciotti, the South Coast Air Quality Management District Board member representing Duarte, will introduce staff members who will present an overview of the monitoring station and its operation. The presentation will take place at 9 a.m. in the Valley View School cafeteria, followed by a tour of the monitoring station area. The South Coast Air

Quality Management District (SCAQMD) began installation of the monitoring station in October 2013 at the request of the City of Duarte following court decisions that cleared the way for Vulcan to expand its mining operations to Van Tassel Ridge above Duarte homes and schools. The addition of a full meteorological tower to accurately measure wind conditions installed this month has made the monitoring station fully functional providing continuous monitoring and real time reporting including hourly averages of PM10 levels. PM10 is particulate matter that is everything

less than 10 um in size (25 to 100 times thinner than a human hair), the byproduct of crushing and grinding rocks and soil. PM10 are blown by the wind and can stay in the air for minutes or hours and travel as little as 100 yards or up to 30 miles. Inhalation of PM10 particles can pose a danger to respiratory health because they can lodge deep in the lungs. Data from the monitoring station will stream live to the SCAQMD where it will be analyzed for quality control, then sent to the City of Duarte and made available for the public on a dedicated web page on the City's www.accessduarte. com website.

The Social Whirl When the patient said...

“I’m Going Blind from Macular Degeneration” I had to set the record straight At age 91, Lee Meadows is strong and independent, a retired Food Administrator for the United States Marine Corps. His eyesight was deteriorating due to Dry Macular Degeneration. Mr. Meadows dear wife lives in a separate care facility. As his eyesight worsened, Mr. Meadows began to fear that he would lose the ability to safely drive himself to visit her every day, or even to write checks and read important mail. “Eventually,” he lamented, “I will be completely blind from this.”

The MYTH De-Bunked

Dr. Richard J. Shuldiner of Low Vision Optometry of Southern California corrected the record about Macular Degeneration and also provided a solution for Mr. Meadows. “I re-assured him that as distressing as it seemed, Macular Degeneration never causes blindness. While it affects the central vision, he will always have his peripheral vision.” Dr. Shuldiner prescribed strong “PRISMATIC” glasses for everyday reading and writing, and another pair of “BIOPIC TELESCOPIC” glasses that allow Mr. Meadows to drive safely. “I can spend time with my wife, and run regular errands safely. I am very relieved,” says Mr. Meadows.

Happy patient Lee Meadows, 91, wearing new prescription glasses.

Arcadia Presbyterian Church Celebrating 100 Years---1914 to 2014 Arcadia, 1914, who would have guessed that our beautiful city was once, in the early 1900’s a rippin’ Wild West village. No one would even admit to living in Arcadia. It had a horrible reputation. Yes, our town which is well known today as a city for lovely homes, churches, and schools was once a village of maybe 400 people, mostly ranch hands! This was a shoot them up, rowdy, tough village with many bars, saloons and hotels. Arcadia was for sure a wide-open, Wild West town. How the little church ever survived its early struggles to become ARCADIA PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH is difficult to comprehend. It all started in 1906, with one lady, Mrs. Carr, gathering children on Sunday mornings to teach Sunday school under the shade of an oak tree. This oak tree was located behind a building, which is now Huntington Drive and Santa Anita Avenue. As time went on, families started to move into this community, and the Sunday school class grew. With the help of Mrs. Katherine English and Mrs. H. B. Horlock, they moved to the first public school building. As more families moved into this community, the Sunday school grew. The

Sunday school moved to the McCoy Building. Can you guess what happened time and again? People kept moving into Arcadia, and the Sunday school kept growing. A move that was made and for $12 a month they rented one room of a store building which had been used as a saloon and a pool hall. It was time to clean up the town, and an election was held. This election closed the saloons, and the California Legislature passed a law prohibiting racetrack gambling. It was Easter, April 16, when the first church service was held in 1914. On May 22, with 24 members and the order of Los Angeles Presbytery, Highland Park Presbyterian Church and Boyle Heights Presbyterian Church, our church in Arcadia took the name of First Presbyterian Church of Arcadia. Four months later, the name was changed to “community Presbyterian Church of Arcadia.” It would be 20 years before another church came into Arcadia. In the mid thirty’s the church now was at the corner of Santa Anita and Huntington Drive, ( where Denny’s Restaurant is located) and again the building was too small. The decision was made to sell that current location, cut the church in half, literally, and move it to First

and Alice. This was the last move that the church made. Today, Arcadia Presbyterian Church, affectionately known as “APC” has become a multi-ethnic church. Smaller churches of Arabic, Armenian, Indonesian, Korean and Taiwanese meet weekly on the church campus. The Arabic Church has a broadcasting studio on campus and the airing of their ministry goes worldwide. Also APC offers a variety of programs for all ages starting with an excellent full time, year round pre-school, Bible studies and Sunday school for all ages. Also on our campus during weekdays, APC offers “Arcadia Music Conservatory”, mainly for children and teen-agers after school. This is open to the community. In fact, this campus is full of activity for all ages, seven days a week! Yes, it has been 100 years since those early, rough riding days here in Arcadia. As a church it is estimated that during that time APC has ministered to at least 10,000 to 20,000 San Gabriel residents. For more information regarding Centennial and other events, please call 626/445-7470 or www.arcadiapres.org. Arcadia Presbyterian Church is located at 121 Alice Street, Arcadia, 91006.

Arcadia AAUW to present film, “Half the Sky” The eye-opening film “Half the Sky”: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide” will be shown at the April 14 meeting of the Arcadia Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). Filmed in ten countries, “Half the Sky” was first published as a book in 2009 by husband and wife team Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDuynn to address the global struggles of women. It was then made into a film for the Independent Lens series on PBS stations. The Arcadia AAUW presentation will feature selected scenes from the PBS

video and will run from 30 to 40 minutes. “Half the Sky” addresses the global problems of sex trafficking, forced prostitution, violence against women, and early maternal mortality of women in such countries as Cambodia, Vietnam, India, Kenya Sierra Leone, and Somaliland. Authors Kristof and WuDunn, along with celebrity activists, actually traveled to ten countries do filming and interviewing. The resultant book and video offer first-hand accounts of how oppression of women and girls is being confronted through meaningful solutions such as

health care, education, and economic empowerment for women and girls. One of the scenes selected for viewing at Arcadia AAUW’s meeting is of women in Kenya who are using micro-loans from the Grameen Bank (“village” bank, begun in Bangladesh) to raise capital for home businesses and provide for their families. Arcadia AAUW will hold its meeting on Monday evening, April 14, at 7:00 p.m. in the Church of the Good Shepherd’s Jordan Hall, 400 W. Duarte Rd. (SW corner of Duarte Rd. and Holly Ave.), Arcadia. The public is invit-

ed to attend this free meeting, and all are invited to come at 6:30 for socializing and refreshments. An open discussion will follow the video viewing. Membership in the American Association of University Women is open to all women and men holding a university or college degree, as well as to those with an Associate of Arts degree or its equivalent. For more information about membership or the meeting, please call Tamara Kato at (626) 375-6756 or Patricia Dietrich at (626) 4468437.

Perfect partners; gardening with native plants and all sorts of edibles Can native California plants and edible plants exist in the same garden: This is the kind of question that horticulturist Lili Singer can answer about “dry garden” planting, and she is exactly the person to do that when she speaks a the luncheon meeting of the California Retired Teachers’ Association (CalRTA #71) on Friday, April 11, at 11:30 a.m. The group meets at the Senior Center Building in Arcadia Park (County Park), 405 W. Santa Anita Avenue, Arcadia, next to the Lawn Bowing Greens. Many in the community know Lili Singer through her “Thursday Garden Talks” at the L.A. County Arboretum in Arcadia. She is also the Special Projects Director for the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers and Native Plants in Sun Valley, Ca.

As a gardening specialist, she hosted “The Garden Show,” a radio program on KCRWFM, and has also published two award-winning periodicals. Much of her experience with gardening has come from working in nurseries and in her parents’ business. Lili Singer promotes gardening with native plants because of the benefits of water conservation, low maintenance, and natural beauty. Her audience will learn how best to combine natives and edibles in the home garden, and why this partnership is so rewarding, not only or the gardener/chef but also for wildlife. Visitors are welcome to come enjoy the luncheon and to hear Lili Singer’s informative talk with slides included. The cost of the luncheon for members and guests is $10. For luncheon

reservations, please call John Gera at (626) 286-0714 by the April 7 (M) deadline. Membership in the California Retired Teachers’ Association is open to all retired

educators, as well as to any others interested in joining this active group, which now numbers over 500 members in CalRTA #71, the San Gabriel Valley Division.

Commercial acting for senior performers

Foothill Unity Center Golden Plate Awards Salute leadership, grassroots fundraising, corporate volunteerism, faith-based collaboration

-Courtesy Photo

Nearly every day television commercials are produced in Los Angeles. Nearly every commercial produced is seeking new faces to promote products. Baby boomers and seniors 60+ currently comprise the largest demographic of consumers in the United States. Now is the time for beginners who think that they might enjoy performing in television commercials to learn about the business, develop skills, and go for it! Spring classes

for Buddy Powell’s Commercial Acting for Senior Performers will be offered April 15 – June 17 at the Pasadena Senior Center. This ten-week oncamera course will be held from 1pm-3pm on Tuesdays at the Senior Center. Students are invited to perform regularly on videotape and have their work professionally critiqued. Emphasis is placed on developing the individual’s unique qualities, understanding student’s particular type,

strengthening confidence, and developing professional skills necessary for entering the television commercial industry. Instructor Buddy Powell is a professional actor, credentialed in adult education, who has been teaching commercial acting for ten years. The Pasadena Senior Center is located at 85 E. Holly Street in Pasadena. The ten week course is $80.00. Pre-registration is required at the Center. For more information call (626) 795-433.

A leading CEO, a neighborhood party giver, a bank with heart and a collaboration rooted in faith will be honored at Foothill Unity Center’s 2014 Golden Plate Awards on Saturday, April 26, at The Trinity Ballroom in Pasadena. Up to 400 guests are expected for the Fabulous ‘50s themed evening, which will feature a showing of classic ‘50s cars from Street Rods Forever, jukebox music, silent and live auctions and more. "This year's honorees embody the spectrum of ways local people can have an impact on their communities," said Center CEO Betty McWilliams. "We're exceptionally proud to honor them all." Cynthia Kurtz, who will receive the Heart in Hand Humanitarian Award, is president and chief executive officer of the San Gabriel Valley Economic Partnership. She was previously City Manager for the City of Pasadena, and serves on the board of directors of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. Despite her demanding professional life, Cynthia finds time to be deeply engaged in the community. Among many involvements, she chairs the Villa Esperanza Community Board and co-chaired its Capital Campaign; sits on the Advisory Board of the University of La Verne School of Public Administration; serves as vice chair of the Finance Committee of First United Methodist Church of Pasadena. She has also served on the boards of Pacific Asia Museum and the Pasadena Foothill YWCA. Colleen McEvoy, the 2014 Neighbors Helping Neighbors/Volunteer honoree, loves a great party. Fifteen years ago, she and her Sierra Madre neighbors decided to follow their first-ever summer bash with a holiday edition. This time, she said, they’d charge admission: a toy. The event garnered not only toys, but a tidy sum of cash. A friend suggested giving it to Foothill Unity Center. On meeting Colleen, Executive Director Joan Whitenack persuaded her to join the Auxiliary. She began spearheading regular Center benefits. As attendance grew, she decided to focus on the Holiday event. It started bringing in over $10,000 a year, even though admission

Cynthia Kurtz

has always been “give what you can.” McEvoy says, “It makes me feel so good when people tell me they never felt they could make a difference, since they didn’t have much to give — but our party gave them a way to feel they’d helped.” Simplicity Bank, honored with the Neighbors Helping Neighbors/Corporate Award, is committed not only to serving its communities, but participating in their well-being. Last year, 116 Simplicity Bank volunteers contributed 669 hours to Center projects, all of which their company supported financially as well. During the spring National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive, Simplicity teams turned out at three post offices. In August, they worked every shift of our Back to School, Thanksgiving and Holiday Distributions, setup to cleanup. “Simplicity shows up — not just with numbers, but with enthusiasm, hard-work, and a genuine concern for others,” says Center Executive Director Betty McWilliams. “We value their partnership — and we’re impressed by their leadership.” Four local Jewish organizations, Temple Beth David, Pasadena Jewish Temple and Center, Weizmann Day School and Jewish Federation of the Greater San Gabriel and Pomona Valley — have steadfastly expressed their faith’s central concepts of giving tzedakah (helping somebody) and tikkun olam (repairing the world) through their many works on behalf of the Center’s families. At the Temple and Center, collection barrels

are always out, and paper bags are distributed to gather contributions during High Holy Days. Support of the Center is encouraged, and regular volunteer efforts and food drives happen throughout the year. Even as they are jointly honored with the Center’s Neighbors Helping Neighbors/Faith Based award, these groups’ good works and monetary contributions quietly continue. Tickets to the Golden Plate Awards are $150. Sponsorship opportunities start at $2,000, with special recognitions including ads in the Tribute Program. Ads may also be purchased separately. Donations to the silent and live auctions valued at $100 or more will be acknowledged in the program. For more information, visit www.foothillunitycenter.org. About Foothill Unity Center Founded in 1980, Foothill Unity Center is the primary provider of food, case management/crisis help, and access to health care resources across eleven San Gabriel Valley cities. As the federally designated Community Action Agency for the Foothill Area, it operates two locations, in Monrovia and Pasadena, serving clients in Pasadena, Altadena, South Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Arcadia, Monrovia, Bradbury, Duarte, Azusa, Baldwin Park and Irwindale. 77% of clients are at or below the National Poverty Level. The number of people it serves has more than tripled over the last five years, making community funding contributions and volunteer support more critical than ever.

It was 50 years ago today... Local lads come together for something special to honor The Beatles By Terry Miller Okay, I gotta admit… It’s Ringo who got me up on my first set of drums… I’m a lifelong Beatles’ music aficionado …even the good’ tribute’ bands set me harking back to the mother country and reminds me that my father gave away our Shea Stadium Beatle tickets in 1965. He told his two teenage sons who just arrived in America that he “ didn’t think his boys wanted to meet the Beatles. “ My brother and I chose not speak to our father for the rest of that decade when we found out he gave a way press credentials for Shea Stadium-we would have been backstage and met ‘em. When I got over the shock of not meeting the lads from Liverpool , an old friend of mine, Mitch Weissman, who worked with me in a high school band in New York we played a lot of early Beatle songs, went on to play Paul McCartney in the original Beatlemania on Broadway. So I’m pretty familiar with Beatle harmonies and song structure. However, Sunday night in Pasadena, I really didn’t know what to expect when I showed up at Lucky Baldwin’s Trappiste near PCC to hear ‘Rubber Revolver.’ They were supposed to be a five piece band who just happen to sound like, well – The Beatles. When I got there, here are three guys, not dressed up like the ‘other’ tribute bands ( i.e. The Fab Four or Rain, etc.) They were tuning up as the crowd grew larger in the popular pub as I arrived. “But wait –Where’s the bloody drummer” exclaimed one local teacher sitting at the bar. Good point, I thought to self! Well Ringo ( aka Logan Shrewsbury) – love the name - apparently had the night off as did the fifth Revolver, Kenny Wood. Okay, so now how is one acoustic guitar plus bass and lead gonna pull this off? I was getting worried…I can tell you. How can you do Beatles numbers well without a set of Ludwig’s providing the backbeat as masterfully as Ringo? I was knocked for

six! The three young lads: Aaron Powell - on bass and vocals, Brady Burch – vocals and guitar and Derek Kuntz – on lead guitar and vocals pulled off an enormous task effortlessly without drums or even that dreaded drum machine some use to replace real sticks and bones. They kicked off with an energetic early number one hit ‘I saw her Standing There’ with brilliant harmonies that proved immediately that these guys were no slouches…They knew their stuff alright – they have studied every note, chord and nuance which set apart the Fab Four and rocketed them “to the top” as Lennon said. Burch’s vocals are topnotch and passion filled. Combine that with some terrific guitar and great bass lines by Kuntz and Powell respectively and you gotta hide your love away cause these guys are very good! The lesser known and mysterious “Girl” written by John Lennon was put into gear later in the evening with soothing melancholy. Lennon said that the fantasy girl in the song's lyric was an archetype he had been searching for his entire life ("There is no such thing as the girl — she was a dream") and finally found in Yoko Ono Lucky Baldwin’s Trapisste’s delightful Manager Megan Giles and the ever-entertaining barkeep with perceptive musical taste, Sir Edwin ‘Foamy’-Sudds, Esquire, along with a small army of master servers and vixens like Jukebox Jasmine , Evocotive Eve and Legendary Tatianna as well as our man Friday …the

ever popular - Tea-Totaling Tom Tom who kept the amber nectar flowing down the trapdoors of about 100 dyed-in-the-wool Beatle fans while we sat back and took that Magical Mystery Tour back in time. One of the cool things about this pub is that all the barkeeps are really into good music. Perhaps none more so than Lola, aka Loren who just happens to be a big fan of the band’s bass player. The old sing-along feeling of British pubs was back in full force. Except - this was different. Every song got better, the harmonies got stronger and the appreciation for the three lads grew exponentially. Everyone was singing (minus a few insufferable lushes who have absolutely no musical taste and rather bad flatulence.) The two sets Rubber Revolver played captured the lifeblood of a band that changed all of us baby boomers and continues to be the most incredible portent the music world will ever see. Seeing these three lads master some of the most complex vocal harmonies and carry it off with ease is a testament to me that not all young musicians swallow microphones, utter unintelligible lyrics as a computer blasts out some mindless automaton-like rhythm. All you need is love of a great songwriting team like Lennon and McCartney and a deep indebtedness of the individual talents that made the fab four gel so incredibly well and survive the test of time. Keep an eye out for these blokes ….They’re damn good!

Monrovia High School’s “Kings and Queens” qualify for 2014 First Tech championship Five young women from Monrovia High School and their rhinestone-encrusted robot qualified to advance to the 2014 First Tech Challenge Robotics World Championships as a result of their strong performance at the West Super-Regional Robotics Tournament held near Sacramento at the former McClellan Air Force Base this past weekend, the Monrovia High School Robotics Program announced Wednesday. The Monrovia team, the only qualifier from the Los Angeles area, joins three San Diego teams and four Northern California teams to be among the 128 top teams from around the world to compete at the First Robotics World Championships to be held at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis April 23-26. A total of 24 teams advanced from the West Super-Regional including teams from Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Nevada, and Arizona. These five junior class women – the “Kings and Queens” team – stand out not just for their signature costumes of purple-velvetand gold-embroidered renaissance dresses and the purple and gold medieval royal pavilion where the team relaxes between matches. Their purple robot “Your Highness” performed flawlessly during the competition even after a failure of the robot’s transport cart sent it plunging to the floor of the arena in an unplanned four-

foot “drop test.” In fact, during the crucial and difficult software-controlled “autonomous period” of the matches, Your Highness achieved a perfect record of 10 of 10 successful autonomous runs scoring an average of 56 autonomous points per match out of a possible 60. The members of the Kings And Queens team Amanda Sullivan, Melissa Johnson, Emma McIntosh, Jordan Nunez and Nicole Miller - designed and built their 18 by 18 inch robot from Tetrix parts, plexiglas, metal shapes and machined aluminum to compete with alliances of robots on a 12 by 12 foot field. In competitions the robots are required to perform a variety of tasks in 2-1/2 minutes including picking up 2-inch plastic cubes and depositing them into elevated goals, navigating a wooden

ramp, raising a flag up a pole, and gripping a cross bar and pulling themselves up completely off the floor, all while coordinating with a partner robot and while sharing the field with an opposing team of robots intent on accomplishing the same tasks. The Monrovia High FTC robotics after-school program is one of many opportunities at Monrovia High School supporting STEM education (science, technology, engineering, and math) in conjunction with Monrovia’s Math and Science Academy, and supported by the Monrovia Schools Foundation. The Monrovia High School FTC robotics program is actively seeking tax-deductible donations and company sponsorships to help cover the approximate $13,000 cost of taking the team to St. Louis in April.

that those who walk down the aisle of the church for the “wrong reasons” may end up walking down the aisle of a jail. ICE officials acknowledge it is a strong message, but say the stern language is needed to remind the public about the possible consequences associated with sham marriages. “Marriage fraud is not a storyline for a Hollywood rom-com, it’s a federal crime, and unfortunately one that is all too common,” Claude Arnold, special agent in charge for ICE Homeland Security Investigations Los Angeles. “Schemes like this not only undermine the integrity of America’s legal immigration system, they also pose a significant security vulnerability.” As if to underscore the point, a Los Angeles man was sentenced earlier this week to 26 months in federal prison after an HSI probe revealed he arranged sham marriages for Nigerian nationals so they could obtain legal permanent residency in the U.S. Alake “Terry” Ilegbameh, 46, of Baldwin Hills, was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald. The Nigerian national was convicted by a jury in November of six counts of conspiracy to violate immigration laws. At trial, prosecutors proved Ilegbameh arranged sham marriages for the purpose of obtaining permanent resident status for six Nigerian immigrants. He recruited American citizens who agreed to

marry an African immigrant for money. Ilegbameh typically offered the U.S. citizens $1,000 or more, and actively participated in schemes to make the resulting marriages appear legitimate to immigration officials. As part of the scheme, Ilegbameh instructed the Nigerians and the Americans in the sham marriages how to make their relationships appear genuine by opening joint bank and other accounts, obtaining identification with matching addresses, and taking photographs together. Ilegbameh arranged for the couples to see immigration attorneys, who would file visa

petitions and applications for adjustment of status containing false statements to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). After Ilegbameh concluded authorities were investigating his activities, he instructed some of the Americans involved to lie to investigators, threatening they would go to jail if they withdrew from the sham marriages. Upon completion of prison sentence, Ilegbameh will face deportation. According to HSI special agents, at the time of his arrest, Ilegbameh was in the U.S. illegally and seeking to adjust his status based upon a fraudulent marriage.

Young Musicians Foundation’s debut in Arcadia - April 12

-Courtesy Photo

Young Musicians Foundation’s (YMF’s) pre-professional Debut Orchestra comes to the Arcadia Performing Arts Center for the first time on Saturday, April 12 for an evening of inspired storytelling through music. Be swept away by RimskyKorsakov’s colorful and rhapsodic Scheherazade, a symphonic rendition of the folktales known as the Arabian Nights. Opening the program, Mozart's effervescent and contagious Overture to The Marriage of Figaro sets just the right tone for anticipating great things to follow –

which is fulfilled by the world premiere of Paul Dooley's Coast of Dreams. Dooley describes this musical tribute to early Los Angeles as a “vibrant tonal tapestry” inspired by “an emotional, cultural and musical exploration of this romantic vision of Southern California.” The composer will also be present at the concert. The Debut Orchestra is YMF’s flagship program, established in 1955. Young musicians ages 15 to 25 are selected annually following a rigorous audition process. The orchestra is led by

Roger Kalia, Music Director and Conductor, now in the second year of his three-year term. Thousands of Debut Orchestra alumni have gone on to become members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and many other orchestras in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Saturday, April 12, 7:30pm. $20 Front Orchestra Preferred / $10 General Arcadia Performing Arts Center, 188 Campus Drive Arcadia. Concert tickets for sale online at www.arcadiapaf.org.

Haines leaves Santa Anita; New president Tom Ludt is in For the first time in the 80-year history of Santa Anita Park there will be no one from the Haines family working at the horse race track with the announcement that George Haines is leaving as President to

head Southern California Off Track Wagering, Incorporated (SCOTWINC). Tom Ludt has been appointed Santa Anita Park President effective April 7, 2014. Ludt, who was hired a year ago as Se-

as President of Vinery Farms from 2004-2013. Haines has spent his entire career at the track, following in the footsteps of his father who started working there in 1935, just a few months after it

opened on Christmas Day of 1934. The Los Angeles Turf Club Inc., (LATC), doing business under the name of Santa Anita Park, selected Haines by a unanimous vote to head SCOTWINC, an organization that oversees all off-track wagering at brick and mortar simulcast locations in Southern California. Haines has served as President and General Manager of Santa Anita Park since May of 2010, and prior to that, he had served in several capacities, including LATC’s Vice President and General Manager from 2004-2010 and as Director of Pari-Mutuel Operations from 19841999. Haines first came to work at Santa Anita in the track’s Pari-Mutuel Department in 1972, and his father was Santa Anita’s Mutuel Manager from 1954-1984. “We want to sincerely thank George for his many years of dedication and outstanding service here at Santa Anita,” said Keith Brackpool, Chairman, LATC. “His selection to lead SCOTWINC

New President Tom Ludt

by a unanimous vote of his peers is an indication of the high regard with which he is held not only here at Santa Anita, but industry-wide. We are also gratified that George has agreed to continue to serve us in an advisory capacity. “With our expanded live racing calendar now extending through the month of June, Santa Anita is facing both new challenges and new opportunities. Tom Ludt has done an excellent job in helping us to transition to a truly modern, state of the art racing and entertainment facility over the past year.

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.

An 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 allegedly asked residents if he could collect their election ballots and mail them for them was the catalyst. Arcadia Weekly was the first to break the story on March 20. Beacon Media spoke with candidate, Sho Tay last week 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. However in an email sent Tuesday night, Sho Tay is once again offering stamps, for free: Despite all the controversy two weeks ago, Shoy Tay said this is his email: “So far about 3,600 ballots have been cast, out of

about 30,000 registered voters. That is only 12%. I believe the more voters, the more voices are heard. Since the beginning of my campaign I have been making every effort to get more registered voters to participate in this election. No matter who you vote for, it’s important to cast your vote. Some people say the new mail-in ballot process couldn’t be easier — all you have to do is put your ballot in an envelope, put a stamp on it, and put it in your mailbox by this Friday, April 4, or hand deliver it to City Hall by next Tuesday, April 8. I’m going to make it even easier – today I delivered first class stamps to two local businesses to give away to anyone who comes in and requests one for their ballot envelope. No one will ask which candidate you are voting for; no one will even check to make sure you use the stamp for your ballot envelope. It’s the honor system. I may, in fact, wind up paying for some people to vote against me, but it’s worth it to me to do all I can to get more of you to cast your vote. So, if you don’t have a stamp, please stop by Taza: A social coffee house at 11 W. Huntington Drive (just west of Santa Anita Avenue, across from the park) or O’Green Cafe, 714 W. Duarte Road (just west of Baldwin Avenue). I’m also pleased to help promote these two terrific Arcadia businesses run by local entrepreneurs. Vote for whomever you like, please just VOTE! Democracy only works if we all care enough to participate!” – Sho Tay Arcadia Weekly contacted Chief deputy city clerk/records manager Lisa Mussenden in Arcadia who told us that “ They are looking into the matter and as it is an ongoing investigation, we cannot comment further.” Arcadia Police Lieutenant Colleen Flores said the dept. issued an automatic alert two weeks ago 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 Registrar’s office sent us the pertinent 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. (e) Carries away or destroys, attempts to carry away or destroy, or knowingly allows another to carry away or destroy, any poll list, ballot container, or ballots lawfully polled or who willfully detains, mutilates, or destroys any election returns. (f) Removes any unvoted ballots from the polling place before the completion of the ballot count. Lt. Flores advises If someone does come to your home offering to collect your mail-in election ballot “do not give it to them” and contact the PD. While it is unlikely any criminal or civil charges will be files, the Election Code clearly states that Anyone with any additional information is asked to call Arcadia police at 626-574-5123. Arcadia’s election is Tues April 8.

Plan ahead for your 2014 charitable gifts Third Annual San Gabriel Valley At the end of every year. HOMEless veterans stand down couples filing a joint return) year, people often scramble 3 – Explore the potential for in 2014. You should check to wrap up their charitable employer-matching donations with your tax advisor to learn “Heroes in the Shadows” giving by Dec. 31. A little Some employers pro- more about how this rule planning throughout the year can go a long way to avoid the last-minute rush. Make 2014 the year you get ahead of your charitable contributions. It can be more effective for you and those who benefit from your giving. Here are five steps to consider as you pursue your charitable goals over 2014 and beyond: 1 – Make a plan Just like other aspects of your financial life, most of your charitable giving should meet specific goals you have in mind. Take some time in the early months of the year to assess the causes you would most like to support and determine your giving priorities. You also may want to estimate your income for 2014 and set aside a percentage that you’d like to donate. 2 – Establish automatic plans Some charities allow you to make periodic contributions automatically using a credit card or a bank debit. You may find it easier to make a larger donation when you give a little bit at a time. Check with your favored charities to see if an automatic plan is available so you can implement a regular giving strategy. Not only does this approach make it easier for you, it also helps the charity as they receive systematic donations throughout the

vide matching donations (up to a certain amount) of your own contributions to a specific charity. It multiplies your gift and can make a big difference for charities. If your employer offers a match, do your homework and make sure you’re taking advantage of this benefit. 4 – Understand the tax ramifications The general rule of thumb is that most charitable gifts can only be deducted from your taxes if you itemize deductions. In 2014, the standard deduction for those who choose not to itemize is $12,400 for married couples and $6,200 for a single tax filer. Those who don’t itemize deductions can still save on taxes by gifting appreciated assets to charity. This may be particularly effective for those with higher incomes who would be subject to an accelerated capital gains tax rate of 20 percent (the standard capital gains tax rate is either 0 percent or 15 percent, depending on your tax bracket). Another important tax consideration is a restriction on itemized deductions for higher income individuals (known as the Pease Provision). It limits itemized deductions for those with Adjusted Gross Incomes above $254,200 (single tax filers) and $305,050 (married

could affect the tax benefit of your contributions. 5 – Consider the longer term Charitable giving isn’t simply a year-to-year strategy. As you get older, you want to think about how you can effectively manage your estate, while also benefiting your favorite causes. Vehicles such as Charitable Remainder Trusts can help you leave a legacy that will last well beyond your lifetime. Discuss these matters with your financial, legal and tax advisors to see what options might work best for you. Jean D.

Kiwanis 'One Day' kicks-off National Volunteer Week at Grand Park, Monrovia - April 5 Kiwanis International’s day of service, April 5’s Kiwanis One Day, will bring together Kiwanis clubs from around the world for a day of giving back to local communities. This year, the event kicks off National Volunteer Week, and more than 26,000 Kiwanis members are expected to participate in the United States, donating $3.5 million worth of service. City parks are a place where families can build memories by taking their children for bike rides and where they can enjoy walks with their dogs. Unfortunately, Grand Park of Monrovia has been ill-maintained for the past ten years due to recent budget cuts, and has suffered from lack of maintenance and up keep.

Kiwanis of Monrovia members and community volunteers are joining together in the spirit of service on April 5 to adopt Grand Park and restore the life of family picnics and casual play dates with friends. Kiwanis members will also continue to maintain the park on a quarterly basis in order to ensure the park’s future sustainability. The volunteers from Monrovia’s Kiwanis club are just part of the efforts for the annual Kiwanis One Day, an international day of service to unite communities and spread the spirit of service on April 5. The Kiwanis International family is made up of nearly 600,000 youth and adult volunteers from 80 locations around the world. Each year Kiwanis International an-

nually raises more than $100 million and dedicates more than 18 million volunteer hours to strengthen communities and serve children. Time: 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. Address: Grand Park, 325 N. Grand Avenue, Monrovia. “Kiwanis One Day is an opportunity for our clubs to join together on one day and make a visible difference in communities around the globe,” said Kiwanis International Executive Director Stan Soderstrom. “Often, the work is hard, but the need in our local communities is great. Our Kiwanis clubs address needs that would otherwise go unattended.” For more information about Kiwanis One Day, please visit www.kiwanisone. org/oneday.

Begins April 4, 2014 in South El Monte at the Whittier Narrows Recreational Area

For the third year, The Vet Hunters Project along with The San Gabriel Valley Veterans Employment Committee (SGV|VEC) will present the “Heroes in the Shadows” San Gabriel Valley Homeless Stand Down. The event takes place April 4-6 at the Whittier Narrows Recreation Park located at 1200 N. Potrero Road in South El Monte. Attendees may pre-register online as well as at several partner locations. Walk-up registration opens on April 4 and continues until noon on Sunday. On-site dental, medical, vision, legal & counseling services will be available as well as accommodations for (sleeping quarters, showers, laundry facilities, food, entertainment, personal grooming/ wellness), as well as transportation to and from the site. Unique in its ability to not turn anyone away based on criteria such as area of resi-

dence, gender and Veteran Status, the 2012 Stand Down attracted close to 400 residents including Veterans, Active/Reserve/Guard Service Members and civilians ranging from 19 to 82 years old. This year’s opening ceremony takes place on Friday April 4 at 10:00am and features US Congresswoman Grace F. Napolitano CA-32nd District and City of El Monte Councilman Juventino “J” Gomez as the keynote speakers. Numerous dignitaries representing the State of California, Los Angeles County and various other Federal Agencies, will also be in attendance. The general public is welcome to attend the Opening Ceremony or visit the Stand Down to volunteer. Unlike other similar Stand Down events throughout Southern California that rely on government grants to fund their operations (which

could limit the types of services and populations served); “Heroes In The Shadows” is made possible through personal and organizational donations and sponsorships. Working to combat Veteran Homelessness by utilizing this no red tape method, with little to no government grants, are a long list of valued partners. In addition to Congresswoman Napolitano and Councilman Gomez, key partners include the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Whittier Narrows Recreational Area, Vet Hunters Project, State of California Employment Development Department, US Army Reserve 155th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, US Dept. of Veterans Affairs as well as the many community partners that operate in the San Gabriel Valley as well as Southern California at large.

Life Remembered Bob Dawson Memorial services for Robert “Bob” Earl Dawson, 83 year old Weatherford resident, will be held Saturday, April 5, 2014 at 2:00 P.M. at the Heartland Museum. Bob was born on August 17, 1930 to Charles and Victoria Dawson and died on March 21, 2014 at his home in Weatherford. He was reared and attended school in Greenfield and Drummond, Oklahoma before moving to Weatherford where he attended Weatherford Public Schools, graduating from Weatherford High School with the Class of 1948. He began attending Southwestern Oklahoma State College in 1948, until his Army National Guard unit, Battery “C” 158th

Field Artillery Battalion, 45th Infantry Division was called into action in 1950. He married Jerolyn Harris in Weatherford on July 11 of that year. After serving in the National Guard he returned to Southwestern Oklahoma State College and completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Education in 1954. His career in education began that year in Dorris, California as an upper elementary level teacher. Later he moved to Monrovia, California where he taught woodshop at Clifton Middle School, and become Vice Principal there. He moved to Santa Fe Middle School as Principal, retiring in 1985. Having been a longtime member of the Exchange Club in Monro-

via, he served, in his retirement as Secretary and also as President of the organization. In 2001 he returned to Weatherford, OK to reside and became involved with the Heartland Museum, where he spent much of his time helping set up exhibits, building display cases, and refurbishing donated items. Memorial contributions may be made to the Heartland Museum. Bob is survived by one son, Mick Dawson and his wife Terry of San Dimas, CA; one daughter, Diana Bradshaw and her husband Rick of League City, TX; five grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife; and one brother, James P. Dawson.

Alhambra Unified SD facing molestation lawsuit A lawsuit has been filed against the Alhambra Unified School District by a girl’s mother that alleges a special education teacher molested her, according to a published report. The lawsuit alleges the district had knowledge or should have had knowledge that Jose Jesus Mosqueda, 44, had “a tendency to sexually abuse minors and that he had inappropriate contact with children on school property before the incident occurred,” according to the report. Mosqueda, who used to teach at Repetto Elementary School in Monterey Park, is now behind bars and facing felony charges for allegedly sexually abusing three girls all not yet 14 years old when they were allegedly molested, according to the report. Mosqueda was taken into custody nearly two and a half years ago by the Monterey Park Police Department. His charges are “eight felony counts, including oral copulation

By SHEL SEGAL or sexual penetration with a child under 10, lewd act upon a child and continuous sexual abuse,” according to the report. Mosqueda apparently passed all the statemandated background checks before being hired by the district, according to the report. In addition, he also passed state and federal fingerprinting tests and all his references, including past employers, checked out. This has been a tough year for the district as two other employees have been arrested on suspicion of child molestation. Andrea Michelle Cardosa, assistant principal at Alhambra High School, resigned on Jan. 17 after a YouTube video went viral, according to the report. In the video of a phone conversation, a woman identified as Cardosa admitted to having an inappropriate relationship with a minor in a different district. On Feb. 28, Jeffrey Yoshitake, a math teacher at Garfield Elementary School,

was arrested on suspicion of maintaining a seven-year sexual relationship with a former student, according to the report. In regards to the lawsuit, the girl’s mother Yolando Romero told staff at Repetto she wanted her daughter held back in second grade because the girl – who is mildly retarded – wasn’t doing well in reading and writing, according to the report. However, Mosqueda allegedly said retention wasn’t in the girl’s best interest and that she should be tutored privately at Repetto after school, according to the report. Mosqueda tutored the girl from Oct. 11, 2011, to Dec. 14, 2011. The mother’s attorney said the mentoring happened behind closed doors and alleges that Mosqueda was following school policy, according to the report.

– and the district – have adopted what is known as Common Core, students in Arcadia will be studying subjects at the same time as students in 46 other states, said Jennifer Prince, a teacher on assignment for the district. Prince said Common Core is meant to help students compete in the 21st century national and global economy. “Common Core is a backwards vertically aligned standards,” Prince said. “They started with college and career. There was feedback from major colleges saying these kids come out and they’re not prepared for the real world. They’re good test takers, but they don’t have any real life skills.” Prince also said as Common Core was being developed, it was developed for the higher grades first and worked down from there. “What they said was

if they need to do this in college and career, this is what they need to do at the end of 12th grade and they built backwards,” she said. “Instead of having random standards in each grade, there’s a progression of standards and it’s a more narrow field. You go more deeply into (subjects).” Prince said each state can make a 15 percent alteration to Common Core to suit its needs and she added while education has primarily been a local item up until now, it needs to change for the benefit of the students. “We live in national economy,” she said. “It can’t be enough for this is what’s good for here locally. What if our kids don’t stay here forever? What if they need to go compete with kids from Harvard and Brown? If you are taking a class in New York

or Chicago or Arcadia you’re getting the same education.” In addition, Prince said students across the country should benefit from Common Core. “It’s a matter of getting those standards across the board,” she said. “Everybody has the same expectations and it levels the playing field. It gives you the baseline and what kids need to know.” Common Core will also change the way some subjects are taught, Prince said. “A lot of it is going away from rote memorization and getting to get the kids think more about that subject matter,” she said. “With history, for example, it doesn’t matter if you memorize every single date and every single general. What’s important is how it played out.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com.

Interview on the 20th anniversary of Santa Anita Derby Day 5K Santa Anita Park Director of Special Projects, Pete Siberell

Pete Siberell

Q.How did you get into promoting Santa Anita Park's special projects? A: I was initially hired to do sales for Santa Anita, but my job evolved into working with the community and taking on some projects for our president, including the recreation facility on the backside (stable area) and some customer service work. I still am involved with some marketing events at Santa Anita, but more and more what I do here is doing what I can to book activities using our facility outside of live racing. That includes special events, from filming to ride & drive events in the parking lot to community organization fundraisers to weddings to corporate meetings…. also the summer concert series with California Philharmonic Orchestra, 626 Night Market events and various graduations with local schools. Q: When you started the Derby Day 5K was that because of your love of running? A: It was. I had put on a number of races in the Bay Area inside and outside of my job responsibilities, so when I came down to take the job at Santa Anita, I immediately thought I could create a fun event on one of our biggest days of the year, the day of the running of the Santa Anita Derby, a key prep race to the Kentucky Derby. Q: How has the Derby Day 5K grown over the years? A: The DD5K has become an annual tradition for hard core runners and more casual joggers and walkers, especially among families wanting

to do things together. We put on a well organized event over an attractive race course and have something for everyone after the race….lots of food, drink (a beer garden helps), entertainment and most importantly, a great card of Thoroughbred horse racing. There is a group of hard cores, the Team Crossfit Academy in Monrovia , and I am flattered they use the DD5K to do speed training for the Mt. Wilson Trail Race in late May. In short, we have grown the event from under 1,000 people to well over 5,000 over the years. Word has gotten around, and people like to come back! Q: What are the top things people tell you they love about the Derby Day 5K? A: The fun and excitement of being at Santa Anita Park on a race day (for horses too) and the beauty of the LA County Arboretum. Q: What's your proudest running moment or race? A: Personally, running a couple sub 3-hour marathons in San Francisco , but outside of that, putting on a race like the DD5K or Mt. Wilson Trail Race and just seeing everyone having fun. I love it when people see the importance of fitness and find a way to combine it with having fun. Q: Do you and your wife travel a lot? A: Not as much as I would like. My wife Marianne has been a flight attendant with United Airlines for many years and my expectation was that we would be running all over the world. But I work too much! Q: How have you applied your ad agency experience to your work at Santa Anita? A: Those who do well at the agency level are good providing client service and recognizing good creative ideas. Those kind of things have helped me develop programs and projects at Santa Anita to bring new types of people here. Q: What did you like and what did you not like about working at an agency? A: Loved the camaraderie and teamwork

of being with truly talented people; did not like the fact every account was in danger of being given to some other agency. That work is best for single people in their 20s and 30s! Q: What makes Santa Anita and your work there unique? A: Every day is different; we put a show of sorts on every racing day. And I defy anyone to show me a more beautiful office…most of my meetings are at Clockers’ Corner or the Turf Terrace in the Club House, both with incredible views of the San Gabriel mountains. Q: Did you always love going to the track as a kid? A: To really appreciate the game, one needs a dad, uncle, grandfather, older brother or similar to take you out to the racetrack and really explain things, as horse racing can be a very intimidating sport. My dad never took me, so I had to learn it when I was put on the Hollywood Park account at J. Walter Thompson ad agency, and later when I helped run an agency with Northern California racetracks Bay Meadows and Golden Gate Fields as clients. I have been a total sports nut all my life, so I am happy to have learned to love racing a little later in my life. While the sport is on a grand stage at Santa Anita, it still is a community here at the track, and I love it. Q: What words of advice would you give to people who are thinking of heading up a special projects department today, either for a corporation or for themselves? A: Hang in there and don’t be afraid to express your interests in some aspects of your work and disinterests in others. Don’t leave it up to others to decide your fate! It’s your career and you have to love what you do; otherwise, why do it at all? Be honest and fair with everyone, look people in the eye when you shake their hand. Always be polite And always work harder than the other guy. That’s tough when our trainers are here from 5:00A until after the last race, every single day!

ACLU calls on Sheriff John Scott to let muslim inmates exercise their constitutional right to religious expression Former Sheriff Baca ignored same request last year Friday the ACLU Foundation of Southern California (ACLU SoCal) sent a letter to Sheriff John Scott requesting an end to the Los Angeles Sheriff Department’s current practice of denying Muslim inmates access to congregational prayer. “Our right to religious expression is guaranteed in our Constitution,” said Jessica Price, staff attorney

for the ACLU SoCal. “Other inmates are allowed to attend congregational prayer. Refusing to allow Muslims to pray in a group, while allowing other inmates to engage in group prayer, is offensive and discriminatory.” Last year, the ACLU SoCal and more than 30 religious leaders from different faith communities, wrote former Sheriff Baca

expressing the same concern. Sheriff Baca ignored the letter. Muslims continue to be denied access to Jumu’ah services, a weekly congregational prayer which takes place every Friday. The letter states that if the Sheriff’s Department does not allow Muslims to gather for prayers on an equal basis with inmates of other religions, the ACLU SoCal will consider litigation.

CITY OF TEMPLE CITY PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT FUNDS Notice is hereby given that the City Council of the City of Temple City will consider increasing the allocations for the two American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility Improvement Projects that were approved on June 18, 2013 with a budget of $220,000. The City Council will consider adding $70,000 of unallocated Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for the two ADA projects. The request is necessary as the construction bids came in higher

than the City Engineer’s estimate for the projects and a substantial increase to a CDBG program requires approval from the City Council. The City Council will consider the amendments at their meeting of May 6, 2014, at 7:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers of the City Hall, located at 5938 Kauffman Avenue, Temple City. The City Engineer originally estimated the two ADA projects to have a total project cost of $216,860, $113,760 for the Public Parking Lot Improvements and $103,100 for the Temple City Boulevard Sidewalk Improvements. The lowest bid for the two projects was $200,000, resulting in a new total project cost of $275,000. The project requires a 10% contingency for construction unknowns ($20,000) and 20% for necessary soft costs ($55,000) for the project; soft costs include design, land surveying, labor compliance, inspections, testing, contract administration, etc. Any interested persons wishing to provide input on the proposed amendments to CDBG-funded ADA Accessibility Improvement Project may contact the Community Development Department at City Hall by phone (626) 285-2171.

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.

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.

Arcadia Unified Superintendent announces retirement Arcadia Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Joel Shawn has announced that he will be retiring at the end of the school year. Dr. Shawn has been with the high-performing district since 2005, and was named superintendent in the summer of 2008. “I have been unbelievably fortunate to spend the final nine years of my 36-year career in Arcadia,” said Dr. Shawn. “The teachers and staff of this school district are clearly committed to the youth of Arcadia and are the best educators I have ever worked with. I am exceptionally proud of the work we have done together and believe the future holds continued success and excellence for Arcadia Unified.” Dr. Shawn led the district through the heart of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, yet did not cut a single arts or sports program, and was able to greatly minimize teacher layoffs. “In 2012, Dr. Shawn worked with the board to campaign for the community’s support of a $228 per parcel tax which generated $35 million for Arcadia schools that cannot be taken away by the state,” said Cung Nguyen, President of the Arcadia Unified School District Board of Education. “The funds were used to retain and attract high-quality teachers, protect academic programs and preserve the marching band and our visual and performing arts programs.” The first two phases of

the $218 million Measure I Facilities Bond, which was passed in 2006, have also been successfully managed on time and under budget thanks to Dr. Shawn’s leadership. Arcadia students, teachers, and staff are now enjoying state-of-the-art classrooms and facilities throughout the district. Upon completion, Measure I will have modernized all ten schools in the district with the latest technology and modern amenities. Measure I was also responsible for the community’s new state-of-the-art 1,200 seat Arcadia Performing Arts Center located on the Arcadia High School campus. Dr. Shawn’s studentfirst approach and leadership ability has helped uphold Arcadia Unified’s reputation of being one of the best public school districts in the entire country. Boasting a district-wide 929 on the latest Academic Performance Index (API), and a graduation rate of 99%, AUSD continues to be recognized nationally for many of its academic, arts, and sports programs. Among AUSD’s many prestigious recognitions is a “Gold Medal” rating for Arcadia High School from the U.S. News and World Report’s 2013 National Rankings, for which more than 21,000 public high schools were evaluated. In this current school year alone, AUSD has three of the top four highest scoring middle schools in Los Angeles County on the Academic Performance Index, including Foothills Middle School,

which earned the highest score in the county with an impressive 977. In addition to 22 National Merit Scholarships finalists at Arcadia High School this year, two Arcadia High students grabbed additional headlines with their remarkable test scores. One student earned a perfect score on his AP Calculus BC Exam, while another earned the highest possible score on the ACT Exam. Both rare feats were accomplished by less than one-tenth of one percent of students who took those particular exams. “While it is extremely difficult for me to imagine my life without coming to AUSD everyday, I am excited to begin my next chapter,” Dr. Shawn added. “I am convinced that our students will lead the world in the years to come, and that our work here has shaped them in ways that will help to guarantee a brighter future for everyone.” Dr. Shawn’s last day on the job will be June 30, 2014.

5.1 Earthquake has a 5% chance of being a foreshock of an even larger quake. "There could be even a larger earthquake in the next few hours or the next few days," she said. A number of residents in the area were displaced by the temblor. Police Lt. Mike Chlebowski told the Los Angeles Times that at least eight homes and 20 apartment units were red-tagged in Fullerton because they were deemed unsafe to occupy. Some apartments and businesses were damaged by the quake in La Habra,
