Thousands gather at El Monte High to remember Adrian Castro BY DENA BURROUGHS

Calvin Aceves, who survived the crash, told thousands gathered at El Monte that he sat in front of Castro on the bus last Thursday. Castro, an El Monte High School football player and oldest of three boys, let Aceves lean his seat back then plugged in speakers to his phone so the people around him could listen to music. “He passed away trying to help others,” Aceves was consoled by Coach Joel Sanchez as he broke down in tears. -Photo by Terry Miller

V ictorian Fair Sat. & Sun., 4/26 & 27 1 to 5 p.m.

Thousands of people gathered at the El Monte High School (EMHS) quad Monday night to celebrate the life of Adrian Castro, one of ten people who died last Thursday when a charter bus collided with a Fedex truck near Orland, CA. Adrian was a popular 18-year-old, part of the Lions football squad and remembered for his always pleasant demeanor. He was on his way to Humboldt State University, a school he was considering to attend next year because he was interested in a career in kinesiology. The EMHS Cheerleaders cancelled their try-out practice to attend the vigil, which was also attended by those who are most often seen as rivals but this night were instead supporters - football players from every high school in the City. Also present were his family members, various City officials, Mayor Andre Quintero, and even a young man who had only met him on the charter bus Please see page 25

My friend was in the hospital recently. Her bill for the stay was really something quite atrocious. We were looking over it to see what some of the cost components were. The cheapest item on the bill sounded intriguing and seemed quite a bargain at only $10.00. It was called "Mucus Recovery System." Now sometimes when my curiosity gets aroused, I just have to get some satisfaction. You know the old saying, "Curiosity killed the cat. Yeah, but satisfaction brought him back." Well, the cat is back. I

found out that "Mucus Recovery System" translates to "a box of tissues." At $10 a box, so much for a bargain. The price is a little steep, but I sure like that moniker. If blowing one's nose can ever be considered elegant, blowing it into a Mucus Recovery System would do it. Her hospital bill set me to thinking about some other bills we receive that list things I bet most of us don't know the meaning of. For example, do you know what a Competition Transition Charge is? Me neither, but it is on my electric bill. That along with Nuclear Decommissioning Charges, Public Purpose Program Charges, Franchise Fees, and a New System Generation Charge came to quite a hefty amount.

That sent me to the gas bill. Pretty short and to the point. You used this amount, you pay this amount for it. I'm not sure what that Public Purpose Surcharge was for though. Hm-mm, didn't I see a program called that on the electric bill? On to the phone bill where I found some interesting fees and surcharges. Okay. There was an interesting CHCF-A and CHCFB. I'm told that stands for CA High Cost Fund. Really clears that one up doesn't it? There is also a thing called Universal Connectivity Charge. The bill says I can call an 800 number for an explanation of this charge. I think I might do that. First I have to grab a Mucus Recovery System. My allergies are bad.

Letters to the Editor Send your letters to tmiller@beaconmedianews.com

Editor's note: Due to some formatting issues last week, the following letter was printed with several errors. We reprint here with corrections.

The piece meal approach! The Sierra Madre Weekly has recently published several extensive articles that were submitted by a Sierra Madre Council Member, which promoted all the good things that the City government is doing. He also provided certain financial spending figures and pointed out bow the accounting methods are done with such accuracy and audited so that they are absolutely correct. If you add his figures together for the Police and Fire/Paramedic spending they add up to S4,952M which is $172,181 more than the S4.78M that was stated on the mailing which was sent out with our water bills. This does not include the $811,304 figure for the Library expenses, which is supposed to be under the U.U.T. umbrella. The $1,703,373 administrative figure is also full of question since the City Manager and Finance Director's compensation amounts to approximately 17% of that figure. Are they saying that the other 12 full-time and two

part-time employees are only paid a total of S1,344.000, including dept. expenses? The Public Works figure is also subject to question since the $357,265 figure does not cover the amount of compensation of the top three employees in that department. If one adds up all of the figures that were presented you arrive at a total of $6,980,694. Then add in the seven plus million dollar figure for the contracts for services, legal costs and longterm debt payments. This provides an approximate S14M figure. This leaves an approximate $7M of unaccounted income to arrive at the approximate $21M total income. This still doesn't account for the increases in income for the heavy water bill increases that this same Council Member was the chief promoter of and he should know that amount if anyone does. It also doesn't talk about all the other increases of income from other sources since all of the City's fees are increased ev-

ery year, nor does it make any mention of the numerous increases from property taxes. Why does the Council Member only deal in telling the people part of the spending side of the accounting and nothing on the income side? Would a person play cards with only five or ten cards, or would they use the whole deck of 52 cards? Would a person only use the pawns during a chess game? You see the point and this is all the pieces people ever see and even those do not make sense. If the U.U.T. drops by S1M, will the City be in financial trouble? We think not when all the other additional income is correctly included. This Council Member is promoting the U.U.T. increase to the best of his ability. This is the same person that wrote on the Sierra Madre Tattler to vote NO on the U.U.T. when he was a candidate back in 2012. My how they change when they get into office! Sierra Madre Watchman

How to Sell High: Avoid these Three Mistakes When Selling Your Home Alhambra - When you decide to sell your home, setting your optimal asking price is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Price is often the first thing a prospective buyer sees, and many homes are passed over as “not in our price range” before the home even has a chance of being shown. Your asking price is often your home’s “first impression,” and if you want to realize the most money you can for your home, it’s imperative that you make an excellent first impression.

This is not as easy as it sounds, and pricing strategy should not be taken lightly. Pricing too high can be as costly to a homeseller as pricing too low. Comparing against what other homes in your neighborhood have sold for is only a small part of the process, and by itself is not nearly enough to help you make the best decision. A recently study, which compiles 10 years of industry research, has resulted in a new special report entitled “Homesellers: How to Get the Price You Want (and Need).” This report will help PAID ADVERTISEMENT

you understand pricing strategy from three different angles. When taken together, this information will help you price your home to sell fast, and sell for top dollar.

Hot Meals Program to continue at Villa-Parke Community Center The Pasadena United Hot Meals Program, founded by local restaurateur Mr. Robin Salzer, will continue at the Villa-Parke Community Center for the next 60 days, according to a city press release. Previously, the City had asked Mr. Salzer to relocate the program after April 10, 2014 to a nonCity location or consider merging it with Pasadena United’s meal program at the Jackie Robinson Community Center due to its impacts on other regularly scheduled recreational and organized sporting events. Further discussions with Mr. Salzer have resulted in an agreement to continue the program at the Center for at least 60 days. During this time, City staff and Mr. Salzer will work together to address issues associated with operating the program at the Center, including potential conflicts with recreational uses. Efforts to enhance the program, including using healthier food choices through collaboration with local community gardens, will also be explored. A

determination on the future use of the Villa-Parke Community Center as the program site will be made after the 60-day assessment. Pasadena United Hot Meals will mark its two-year anniversary at the VillaParke Community Center, 363 E. Villa St., from 5-7 p.m., Thursday, April 10. "I would like to thank the City of Pasadena for stepping up to support a meal program that our residents rely on and who in some cases their lives depend on. Eradicating hunger in our community, even if only for one or two nights per week, will improve the quality of life for those without and will validate the commitment of a community and city that truly cares," Mr. Salzer said. Mercy Santoro, Director, Human Services and Recreation Department, said the department’s vision for community building and providing excellent programs continues to be a primary goal for the Department. The Department wants to cooperatively work with Mr. Salzer to make sure his volunteer efforts are successful and benefit

the Villa-Parke neighborhood. “Villa-Parke is an important recreation, sports and community service complex for the City. We have a strong commitment to serving all of Pasadena while also being sensitive

to the specific needs of the Villa-Parke community. Mr. Salzer’s philanthropy is to be commended and we want to work with him to make sure he has the opportunity to continue his good work,” Ms. Santoro said.

his discovery and his identity remains unknown at this time. The victim was transported to a local hospital where he later died. There is no further information at this time . LASD is now considering this a homicide. Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the

Spotlight on Beacon Media Team Member - Ed Davis Occasionally, we at Beacon Media like to direct the spotlight - if you’ll pardon our shameless pun - on one of our team players within our company. This week we’re focusing on a rather distinctive individual who goes above and beyond the call of duty without question and always, with an enigmatic smile. Distribution Supervisor & Event Coordinator, Ed Davis has been employed with Beacon Media since October 2013. Davis, a native of Pasadena, is extremely involved in many community events throughout the year. As a volunteer with the Salvation Army, Davis also mentors those going through drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs via the international non-profit organization whose message is simple but powerful: “Volunteers strengthen communities by ensuring that every individual has the opportunity to succeed.” Davis’ dedication to making sure your weekly paper is delivered carefully, accurately and regularly is unequivocal. He methodically checks each and every route our dedicated drivers take and personally sees to it that additional drop sites are added when the need arises. If there is an error in circula-

By Terry Miller tion, Davis quickly corrects the problem…personally. Furthermore, Davis independently puts together a team to make sure the advertisers’ pre-printed insert message messages gets in the newspapers by creating a team to implement this monumental task. This deed takes place at our printer in the wee hours of the morning every Thursday. You will also see Davis at community events such as the recent Santa Anita Derby 5 K run where Beacon Media had a booth. Davis coordinates and orchestrates community partnerships such as this each week - to make sure every community member who gets involved aware that Beacon Media is the leading source connecting your community to the world. The seemingly tireless Davis also coaches the West Pasadena Little League. This consists of training boys under 10-years-of-age not only with the sport but also respect for the team, its collective effort and how to treat your fellow man. Another of Davis’ passions is percussion. As a member of the ‘The Pasadena Cowgirls Drill Team & Drum Squad’ for the past 35-years, Davis performs in many parades including the

-Photo by Terry Miller

annual Black History Parade in Pasadena which attracts thousands to Pasadena each Februrary. Davis has a hunger to help others to transform their lives. He’s continuously seeking opportunities to develop his own life through training and development courses offered through extended learning programs within the community. The self-effacing Davis takes it all in his stride and was visibly uncomfortable when his co-workers selected him the ‘Team Player of the Quarter’ last week at our Monrovia office. We commend Davis for his meticulousness attention to detail, making sure that your local paper is delivered each week, but also for his continued community allegiance and commitment.

The easiest, most lowtech system uses a washing machine and gravity to move laundry water directly out to the garden – these “laundryto-landscape” systems do not require a permit as long as no pump or surge tank is used and as long as all code requirements are met. For simple and complex systems which involve altering plumbing, including use of surge tanks and pumps, a permit is required. For graywater systems which require a permit, the City of Sierra Madre has authorized a 30% reduction of the permit fee to help offset costs and to promote water conservation practices.

alternative irrigation methods such as graywater: Sierra Madre’s primary water source is in decline and residents are required to conserve water. California is facing one of the most severe droughts on record. Reusing graywater, Sierra Madre says, is a way to “conserve the city’s water supply, save money, reduce reliance on potable water for outdoor irrigation, and reduces flows to our wastewater system.” Graywater is untreated household wastewater generated from hand washing, laundry and bathing. This wastewater can be diverted from the sewer to irrigate outdoor plants and landscape.

STRAD-Studded Gala raises $535,000 for acclaimed ensemble The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra (LACO) transformed the Southland into “Strad Central” with its unprecedented STRAD FEST LA featuring eight of the world’s most exquisite and rare Stradivarius violins brought together for the first time in history and played by renowned violinists in a series of four, critically acclaimed, soldout events from March 26-29m 2014. The festival was capped by STRADOSPHERE: A STRADSTUDDED GALA fundraiser co-chaired by Pat and Sandy Gage at which the Orchestra, rather than honoring a celebrated artist or philanthropist, instead feted the eight 300-year –old violins considered among luthier Antonio Stradivari’s most divine hand-crafted creations. The March 29 gala at the California Club raised $535,000 to benefit LACO’S concert series, radio broadcasts and community engagement programs. LACO, considered one of the world’s premier chamber orchestras, is a leader in presenting wideranging repertoire, adven-

turous commissions and stand-out events like Strad Fest LA. “We may never see a gathering of Stradivarius violins like this again in our lifetime,” said LACO Executive Director Rachel Fine. In addition to the gala, Strad Fest LA included a scholarly evening at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, and concerts at Zipper Hall in downtown LA and The Broad Stage in Santa Monica. The featured violin/ violist parings included LACO Concertmaster

Margaret Batier on the 1716 “Milstein” Strad, Martin Chalifour on the 1711 “Kreisler” Strad, Chee-Yun on the 1714 “Leonora Jackson” Strad, Cho-Liang Lin on the 1715 “Titian” Strad, Elizabeth Pitcairn on the 1720 “Red Mendelssohn” Strad , Philippe Quint on the 1708 “Ruby” Strad, Xiang Yu on the 1666 “Serdet” Strad, and 12-year-old prodigy Ray Ushikubo on the c. 1720 “Beechback” Strad. The 1666 “Serdet” Strad is the earliest known of the Stadivarius violins, and the seven others are all from Stradivari’s Golden Period during the late 1600’s and early 1700’s.

The Social Whirl Altadena-Pasadena soroptimists empower women to live their dreams

Four special women were in the spotlight at the “Live Your Dream” luncheon, sponsored by Soroptimist International of Altadena-Pasadena. This annual event, held this year on March 26th at the Women’s City Club, celebrates the power of women who have made a difference in their community. The Soroptimists began the presentation ceremony by honoring Dr. Mikala Rahn with the organization’s Ruby Award (named after Soroptimists’ first president, Ruby Lee Minar). This award recognizes women who have enriched the lives of women and girls through their professional and / or volunteer work. In 2008, Dr. Rahn founded Learning Works Charter School, which focused on students who are often underserved by the mainstream educational system, including

dropouts, youths on probation, and pregnant teens. Two high school seniors, Gillian Ferguson of San Gabriel and Nicoletta Baffo of San Marino, were recognized with the Violet Richardson award, named after the Soroptimists’ founder. This award honors young women between the ages of 14 and 17 who have made the community a better place through their volunteer efforts. Nicoletta Baffo chose to give back to her church community by bringing her love of dance to help young people express and explore their faith and to introduce the tradition of liturgical dance to the church co9mmunity—thus, her project, “A Soul’s Two Feet” was born. She established a dance scholarship at the Pasadena Civic Ballet Studio, which provided financial support for needy students attending

Holy Family School. Miriam Garcia was honored with the Soroptimist Women’s Opportunity Award, given to women who are overcoming personal difficulties and who provide the primary source of financial support for their families. WOA recipients are returning to school to better their lives, and the Soroptimist award money helps them improve their education, skills and employment prospects. Each of the honorees received cash awards, as well as special recognitions from the offices of Congresswoman Judy Chu, Assemblyman Chris Holden, and Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard. Soroptimist is an international volunteer organization working to improve the lives of women and girls in local communities and around the world. For more information, visit www.soroptimist. org.

Are you ready to buy your first home? Buying your first home is one of the biggest investment decisions you’ll ever make. So how do you know if it’s the right time to venture into home ownership? You can start by answering these seven questions. 1. How long will you be in the area? Because of the transaction costs that come with buying and selling a home, it typically takes three to five years to break even. If you sell any sooner, you could end up losing money — even in a rising market. If you do make a profit, you’ll have to pay capital gains taxes if you’ve owned the house less than two years. Assess whether it’s likely that your circumstances will enable you to stay put long enough to make purchasing a home worthwhile. 2. How much can you afford to pay? As a rule of thumb, your mortgage payment shouldn’t be more than 25 percent of your gross income and your total monthly debt shouldn’t exceed 33 percent of your gross income. Keep in mind that your principal and interest aren’t the only costs associated with home ownership. You’ll also incur additional expenses, such as: • Utilities, for example water, gas, electric, sewer and garbage • Homeowner’s insurance • Property taxes • Maintenance costs, for example interior and exterior repairs and equipment for lawn and landscaping care, snow removal and pest control • City assessments • Association fees (if applicable) Because these charges can add hundreds of dollars to your monthly expenses, make sure to consider your total costs to avoid an un-

comfortably tight financial situation or overextending yourself. 3. What’s the housing market like in your area? The real estate market differs by city, state and region. Compare the costs of renting and buying to determine which makes the most sense in your situation. Depending on where you live, one option may be more favorable than the other. 4. Can you cover the down payment? Most traditional mortgage brokers require that you have at least a 20 percent down payment to avoid Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI). If you don’t have enough, PMI will typically cost between 0.5 to 1 percent of your entire loan amount every year. For example, if you purchase a $175,000 home, at a 1 percent insurance rate, it adds just over $145 a month to your expenses. Keep this in mind when calculating what you can afford and whether to purchase. 5. What’s your credit score? If you’re not sure, you can order a free credit report from a reputable credit agency — such as Equifax, Experian or TransUnion — once every 12 months. Your credit score is important because when a bank is deciding whether to loan you money for a home, they want to know that they can trust you to pay them back. If your credit score is good, you can breathe easy. If it’s not, take action as quickly as possible to improve it. If there are any errors on your report, make sure to get them corrected so they don’t negatively impact your ability to qualify for a loan. 6. Are your financial documents in order? When you apply for a mortgage, you’ll need to provide several documents, such as: • W-2 or 1099 income

Medical Equipment Supply Rental & Sales

statements for the past two years • Current year profitand-loss statement if you’re self-employed • Federal tax returns for the past two years • Bank and investment account statements for up to the past three months • Recent pay stubs and proof of other income • 12 months of cancelled rent checks and bank statements showing rent was paid on time if you’re a renter Since it can take time to pull all of this information together, start sooner rather than later. Also, always provide every page of a document, because lenders will want to see every page — even if it’s blank. 7. Do you have an emergency savings fund? Most financial professionals recommend saving enough to cover three to six months of your living expenses in case an unexpected event — such as a job loss, illness or injury — prevents you from earning an income. An emergency fund can also help you cover unexpected expenses, such as a broken appliance or a plumbing emergency. For help assessing your financial situation to determine if purchasing a home is a good choice for you, consult your financial advisor. Your advisor can help ensure that your decision is in line with your short and long-term goals and your budget. Jean D. Koehler is a Financial Advisor with Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc. in Arcadia, Ca.

A motivated workforce stems from a leader worth following and work that’s fulfilling. Ultimately, employees want to use and grow their skills, feel valued, be seen as strong contributors, and perform work that is meaningful. When your employees feel this way you benefit from a dedicated, engaged and productive workforce. Let’s focus on some strategies to ignite motivation. It Starts With You: Model the way by attentively building trusting and respectful relationships with your staff. Make them feel valued by asking for their good ideas and then implementing them. When an employee comes up with a worthwhile idea to better the company or to solve a problem it’s a sign that they care. Leverage that by putting it into action. This is sure to boost their motivation and commitment. Challenge Them With New Assignments: People naturally want to learn and put their skills to use.

Stretch assignments demonstrate that you recognize their skills and have faith in their abilities. New, exciting and challenging assignments are a perfect way for employees to build their skills and expertise which can boost their motivation. Appreciation: Say thank you to your employees. A simple thank you conveys that you’re paying attention to them and notice the good work they’re doing. Your appreciation can be expressed in many ways such as in a one-onone conversation, at a staff meeting or even through an email. If you’re thinking that saying thank you doesn’t make much of a difference then let’s learn from retired four-star U.S. Army General Stanley McChrystal who sent more than 2,000 thank you notes to his troops each year. He said he’d get thank you notes for his thank you notes, and even find them framed in the troops’ bunk areas. Just think of the impression you can make by regularly saying thank you. Meaningful Work:

Performing work that is fulfilling and makes a difference also motivates employees. Remind your staff how their work fits into the big picture and the positive impact that it makes. Help them connect what they’re doing with the larger mission of the organization. In addition, look for ways to stretch their skills through challenging and worthwhile assignments. Empower them to take charge of assignments, make decisions and be fully responsible for executing the task. This demonstrates your faith in them which is also a motivator. Ignite motivation and keep it alive by following these simple yet proven strategies. As a result you’ll soon notice that the motivation spark has been lit and your employees are energized.

Illegal boarding houses Continued from page 1

living on April 7, officials said recently. In a separate case, husband-and-wife Nicholas Benson Mnkandla and Eva Meyers on April 10 both pled no contest to, and were convicted on, numerous charges of operating an illegal boarding home and other housing code violations regarding their property at 280 West Washington Boulevard, officials said. These cases came with a warning from Pasadena city officials: Property owners in the city of Pasadena who operate illegal, unlicensed, unsafe or over-crowded boarding houses will be prosecuted, with owners facing stiff penalties, jail time, probation and thousands of dollars in fines. “Pasadena will not tolerate the owners of illegal,

unsafe, and over-crowded boarding houses who believe they can operate with impunity at the expense of public safety,” said City Attorney/City Prosecutor Michele Beal Bagneris. “The city will not allow these property owners to become unjustly enriched while blatantly violating the law and endangering the public.” As part of her sentence, Broussard will pay more than $2,000 in fines, serve 36 months of probation, not use the property as a boarding house in violation of City codes and submit to all inspections of the property by the city at any time without notice during the probation, officials said. Broussard must pay the city more than $3,900 in costs of abatement and she faces eight months in county jail if

she commits any violations during her three-year probation, officials said. Mnkandla was convicted of 14 counts – five for operating an illegal boarding house and nine code violations for substandard housing. Meyers was convicted on three counts – one for operating the illegal boarding house and two for substandard housing violations, officials said. Mnkandla and Meyers must pay more than $2,700 in costs of abatement to the city and may not use the property as a boarding house in violation of city codes. The defendants will also have to submit to inspections without notice, make the necessary repairs and bring the property up to code, officials said.

Pre-renovation open house April 27 of Blumer Farmhouse in Sierra Madre Sunday, April 27, the Sierra Madre Historical Preservation Society (SMHPS) will have a prerenovation open house and program at the 1887 Blumer Farmhouse, 390 Olive Tree Lane in Sierra Madre. The event will be held from 2pm-5pm. Parking will be on Grand View and if assistance is needed accessing the property, a shuttle will be running from Grand View to the top of Olive Tree Lane.

designated as the Blumer Farmhouse. It is one of the few homes still standing pictured in the historic Bird’s Eye View of Sierra Madre, which was utilized by Nathaniel Carter, the town’s founder, as a promotional piece to entice settlers and investors to Sierra Madre. Although a 17’x34’ two-story home was built in 1883 by Amos D. Trussel, when the property was sold in 1887 to J.G. Blumer, significant changes were made to the existing structure. These included raising the original two-story structure and adding a new first floor underneath in addition to widening the home. A covered second floor porch that wrapped

around three sides of the house was also added. Blumer, a native of England, was active in local affairs and was elected mayor of Sierra Madre at the incorporation of the City in 1907. He also assisted in reorganizing the Sierra Madre Water Company that Amos Trussel had helped establish. Because of this, he was involved in the sometimes contentious water rights negotiations with “Lucky” Baldwin. Additionally, Blumer helped start the library society, and was a major contributor in the efforts to bring the Pacific Electric Railroad to Sierra Madre. Members only When: Sunday, April 27. Time:

City staff, with the technical assistance of consultants Dyett & Bhatia Urban and Regional Planners of San Francisco and Mia Lehrer + Associates of Los Angeles, generated 40 code amendments addressing landscaping, open space, parking, development standards and use regulations. The code amendments were crafted based on ex-

tensive public input gathered through stakeholder interviews, a community workshop, and comments from the Planning Commission, Design Review Commission and City Council. The result is a comprehensive set of code changes that achieve both sustainability and economic development goals in a way that makes sense for San Gabriel’s residents, property owners and business owners. The project will improve quality of life by removing regulatory barriers and offering incentives, flexibility and clarity to make sustainable development easier. The amendments will, among other things, allow community

gardens, farmers markets, permeable driveways and parking lots, establish new standards for solar panels, and require bike parking and increased landscaping for new developments. Greening the Code is the City’s second sustainability-based project to receive a SCAG award. The City received a Compass Blueprint Award for its Valley Boulevard Neighborhoods Sustainabily Plan several years ago. This year’s award will be formally presented to the City at the upcoming SCAG Regional Conference and General Assembly at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, California on May 1, 2014.

Pasadena High’s Michael Dondalski is on the right track By Shel Segal It’s amazing what the right training can accomplish. Just ask Michael Dondalski. A four-year varsity senior for the Pasadena High track team, Dondalski runs the 800 meters. Dondalski said his results this year versus last year are like night and day. “Last year I was battling injury and there was a debate between my former coach and my current coach about how I should be training,” Dondalski said. “But this year I’m performing a lot better. The way I’m training now is better and I’m avoiding injuries.” He added the training methods used by his previous coach were just not working. “Basically, with my former coach I was running on lots of cement,” he said. “I’m not made to do stuff like that. I had shin splints last year. I had to ease up on the training. I couldn’t train as hard. My training is now different and it’s helping me a lot more.” But Dondalski said by training with Leonard Buck-

ner, the coach of the Pasadena track team, he has really improved. “He’s been helping me out a lot and because of him I’m actually performing really well this year,” Dondalski said of training with Buckner. So, what are his times? “Last year, I couldn’t even go under two,” Dondalski said. “But this year I’m under it. I’m at 1:56. The thing I’m really happy about is I’m supposed to be at my best shape at the end of the season. Right now my times are decent, but I’ll be trying to go faster as the season goes on.” Buckner said it was rough-going for Dondalski, but that everything seems to have gone correctly now. “He had gone down to a two-minute,” Buckner said of Dondalski. “He had a bit of frustration there. He didn’t get under two, which is a pretty big goal for the 800 runners. This year he had a much, much different training plan. He’s always been really, really dedicated, but has been definitely more focused. He’s definitely looking to go to

(CIF Southern Section postseason).” Buckner added he thinks Dondalski has a track career ahead of him. “He should be able to go run for somebody and go to college and get a scholarship,” Buckner said. And how fast can Dondalski run? “If everything goes according to plan, 1:52 maybe,” he said. “If I put my full heart into it 1:51 maybe. I’ll do everything I can.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com. Follow him via Twitter @segallanded.)

Pasadena’s Community Access: ‘Pasadena Media’ By SHEL SEGAL Dozens of people showed up on April 3 to usher in a new era for the Pasadena Community Access Corporation. Now known as Pasadena Media with its headquarters on Los Robles Avenue, just south of Colorado Boulevard, their open for business, said Executive Director Keri Stokstad. Stokstad said while they have a new name – and new studios – their objective is still the same. “We’re the new name of Pasadena Community Access Corporation. It doesn’t roll off the tongue as well as Pasadena Media does,” Stokstad said. “We are the umbrella organization for the public education and government community access television channels here in Pasadena.” As Pasadena Media produces both KPAS and the Arroyo Channel, Stokstad said the company is now is a better spot in the city.

“We moved from North Los Robles,” she said. “This is just a better space for us. It’s a better location. We’re close to City Hall. We’re close to (Pasadena Unified School District). We’re close to (Pasadena City College) and we’re close to the (Pasadena) Convention Center.” Stokstad also said she hopes her organization can change the neighborhood around it to become more “media” focused. “A media arts space is just like the playhouse district or spaces that are more focused on art,” she said. We’re focused on media production. We train people in video production. They can come in and take classes. And we can get people into our studio. It’s HD, all digital and brand new, which is pretty exciting.” Stokstad added she thinks you will be hard pressed to find such good shows anywhere as the ones created by Pasadena

Media. “We think that the content we’re going to be putting out will be high quality and competitive with the stations you see on regular television,” she said. “We think it will be a lot of very high quality programming.” If you’re interested in taking classes at Pasadena Media and you are a Pasadena resident, the cost is $50 per year. If you don’t live in Pasadena, the cost is $100 per year. This entitles you to take all the basic production classes, like studio and editing. There are also advanced classes, like sound and lighting, which are offered for additional fees. For more information, call (626) 794-8585, email Stokstad at info@pasadenamedia.org or log onto www.pasadenamedia.org. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD) JPL celebrates Earth Day "The future comes slowly." April 22, 26-27 -- Johann Friedrich von Schiller, 18th century German historian and poet

As NASA plans ambitious new robotic missions to Mars, laying the groundwork for even more complex human science expeditions to come, the spacecraft needed to land safely on the red planet's surface necessarily becomes increasingly massive, hauling larger payloads to accommodate extended stays on the Martian surface. Current technology for decelerating from the high speed of atmospheric entry to the final stages of landing on Mars dates back to NASA's Viking Program, which put two landers on Mars in 1976. The basic Viking parachute design has been used ever since -- and was successfully used again in 2012 to deliver the Curiosity rover to Mars. NASA seeks to use atmospheric drag as a solution, saving rocket engines and fuel for final maneuvers and landing procedures. The heavier planetary landers of tomorrow, however, will require much larger drag devices than any now in use to slow them down -- and those nextgeneration drag devices will need to be deployed at high-

er supersonic speeds to safely land vehicle, crew and cargo. NASA's Low Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD) Technology Demonstration Mission, led by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., will conduct full-scale, stratospheric tests of these breakthrough technologies high above Earth to prove their value for future missions to Mars. The investigators are conducting design verification tests through 2013. The first supersonic flight tests are set for 2014 and 2015. Once

tested, the devices will enable missions that maximize the capability of current launch

vehicles, and could be used in Mars missions launching as early as 2018.

JPL will mark Earth Day (April 22) at a pair of public events: Theater Arts Caltech will present a special Earth Day production of the play “Dr. Keeling’s Curve,” starring Mike Farrell, on April 22 at 8 p.m. in Caltech’s Ramo Auditorium. “Dr. Keeling’s Curve” is a play that both entertains and enlightens. It is the story of how one man came to discover the impact of carbon dioxide on our planet’s health and well-being. He learned that the rising carbon dioxide levels are the primary cause of global warming. JPL scientists will

Los Angeles Zoo presents Earth Day expo weekend celebrating California Wildlife Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27, 2014 Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens

-Photos courtesy of Dennis Dow/Woodland Park Zoo

The Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens celebrates Earth Day with a weekend expo spotlighting California wildlife and the role it plays in the health of Planet Earth on Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27, 2014, 10 am to 4 pm, at the Zoo in Griffith Park. Earth Day Expo features interactive stations throughout the Zoo providing guests an opportunity to explore information and ideas about animal conservation and preservation, sustainable living for humans, recycling, and how to make Earth a better place to live. All activities are free with paid Zoo admission. Among the Earth Day Expo attractions is a demonstration at the Zoo's Sea Lion Cliffs, where harbor seals reside, of Enviroscapes' "Drains to the Ocean" product with tips on how to avoid polluting the Earth's water systems. Efforts for critically endangered California condors are spotlighted at a station in Discovery Plaza illustrating the Zoo's role in the California Condor Recovery Program, whose primary focus is the captive breeding and reintroduction of California condors to the wild with the aim of establishing a self-sustaining wild population. In the Winnick Family Children's Zoo, there is a fish-toss game to astonish youngsters with just how many sea creatures can fit into a pelican's vast mouth and a close-up look at California desert tortoises. At the black bear habitat, guests can explore the ursine's intensely sensitive sense of smell. Biofact models at the big-horned sheep exhibit offer a fascinating hands-on introduction to the animal's unique physiology.

A presentation tied in with the Zoo's extensive botanical gardens stresses the important role native plants play in our ecosystem. And last but not least is the premiere of the Zoo's Bat Station with experts discussing the five species of bats living in Griffith Park. This year the L.A. Zoo is joining with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) program "Party for the Planet," its signature Earth Day event and the largest combined Earth Day celebration in North America (held at AZAaccredited zoos and aquariums across the country) with activities designed for kids of all ages. Earth Day Expo is among many programs presented by the private, nonprofit Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association, founded in 1963. For five decades, GLAZA has funded plant and animal exhibits, species conservation, capital projects, and education and community outreach programs at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens. GLAZA also builds and invests endowment funds and operates seven essential departments on behalf of the L.A. Zoo: development, special events, marketing, publications, membership, volunteers, and oversight of the food and retail concessions. There are 65,000 member households in GLAZA representing more than 240,000 adults and children, the largest membership base of a cultural organization in Los Angeles. GLAZA additionally boasts a volunteer corps of more than 800 individuals. The landmark Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens, attracting 1.6 million visitors each year, is home to a diverse collection of 1,100

animals representing 250 different species, many of which are rare or endangered. Its lush grounds on 133 acres feature a botanical collection comprising over 800 different plant species with approximately 7,000 individual plants. Accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), whose members meet rigorous professional standards for animal welfare, the Zoo has achieved renown as an international leader in the preservation of endangered species and a conservation center for the care and study of wildlife. Among its most popular habitats are the LAIR (Living Amphibians, Invertebrates, and Reptiles), Elephants of Asia, and Campo Gorilla Reserve, with the eagerly awaited Rainforest of the Americas habitat scheduled to open soon. The Zoo's location in Griffith Park at the junction of the Ventura (134) and Golden State (5) freeways ideally positions it as a convenient destination enjoyed by locals and vacationers of all ages who can visit every day of the year except Christmas Day. All Earth Day Expo activities are included with paid admission to the Los Angeles Zoo, which is $18 for adults, $13 for children 2-12, $15 for seniors 62 and up. Admission is free for GLAZA members and children under two. The Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens is located within Griffith Park at the junction of the Ventura (134) and Golden State (5) freeways at 5333 Zoo Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90027. The Zoo is open every day (except Christmas) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (323) 6444200 or visit www.lazoo.org.

Citrus College CAPE Owls selected for Lifeline for Pets Cat of the Week: 2014 Shell Eco-marathon Challenge Brothers “Rex & Ricky” 125 teams vie to shape the future of energy The Citrus College CAPE Owls will be one of 125 student teams from across North, Central and South America competing at the eighth annual Shell Eco-marathon Competition to determine whose studentbuilt vehicle can travel the farthest distance using the least amount of energy. The Citrus Automotive and Physics Eco-marathon (CAPE) Owls – an interdisciplinary research group composed of seven physics and automotive technology students – was selected to compete in the global event taking place April 24-27 at the Discovery Green Park in Houston. There, students will showcase the ultra energyefficient vehicle they have designed, built and tested, and then drive it in an effort to prove that it is capable of meeting the growing demands of fuel-efficient transportation. “Each team is challenged to use their knowledge of science, engineering and technology to discover new techniques and create energy-efficient futuristic cars,” said the group’s co-adviser and physics instructor Lucia Riderer. “To be part of such a major educational project is an outstanding opportunity for our students to work together and shape the future of energy through innovation.” The CAPE Owls consist of seven skilled students with a variety of educational backgrounds. They are Patricia Barroso, of Pomona; Kyle

Beers, of Azusa; Alexus Fraire, of Covina; Enrico Gutierrez, of Azusa; Alex Leu, of Alhambra; Alec Nystrom, of West Covina; and Susan Vong, of West Covina. Student cars will run on energy sources ranging from diesel and biofuels, to solar and electricity, offering up a variety of solutions and approaches to sustainable mobility and fuel efficiency. The CAPE Owls are one of the three teams that comprise the college’s Research in Science and Engineering (RISE) program of 22 students created last spring. The RISE team also includes the Rocket Owls and Space Owls, which work independently on a STEMbased research project and compete in intercollegiate national and international competitions, as well as conduct monthly outreach activities to local K-8 schools.

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.

Upper District urges consumers to make water conservation a way of life Upper District provides a significant amount of the imported water the San Gabriel Valley depends on and is an industry leader in developing water reuse projects that help sustain the watershed. Upper District also offers water conservation programs and rebates for business owners within the District’s service area. Upper District is also actively engaging our communities to incorporate water conservation into our daily lives. “We all have an individual responsibility to meet the Governor’s call for a 20 percent reduction in water use. What we conserve today will be stored for later use if this drought continues. Furthermore, reductions in water use ultimately results in money saved due to less costly wa-

ter bills each month, ” Upper District President Tony Fellows said. So what can you do to reduce your water usage by 20 percent? Here are some simple tips: • Installing aerators on bathroom faucets can save 1.2 gallons per person/day • Fixing leaky toilets saves 30-50 gallons per day/toilet • Wash only full loads of clothes saves 15-45 gallons per load • Taking 5 minute showers saves 12.5 gallons with a water efficient showerhead. Also, installing low-flow shower heads saves 2.5 gallons • Install a water and energy-efficient dishwasher can save 3 to 8 gallons a load. • Use a broom instead of a hose to clean

driveways, sidewalks and patios can save 8-18 gallons a minute. • Water early in the morning or later in the evening when temperatures are cooler can save 25 gallons each time you water. • Wash cars/boats with a bucket, sponge, and hose with self-closing nozzle can save: 8-18 gallons a minute. Upper District encourages you to visit www.bewaterwise.com for water savings tips and resources. To receive cost saving rebates for water efficient toilets, washing machines and other appliances and water efficient outdoor landscaping devices like smart irrigation controllers, rotating sprinkler heads, soil moisture sensors and turf removal, residents and business owners can visit www. socalwatersmart.com.

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

Thousands gather at El Monte High to remember Adrian Castro Continued from page 1

the day of the accident. Judee, whose daughter Krystal is a freshman at EMHS, attended the event. “Just [seeing] the people that showed up told of what a great guy he was,” she said. “Teachers and coaches spoke highly of him. His friends said Adrian was always laughing or smiling. He got along with everyone.” Adrian has touched

the hearts of all El Monteans, whether they knew him personally or not. There’s a communal feeling of support towards the Castro family, and at EMHS a sense of additional brotherhood towards Adrian’s father, Raul Castro, whom others called “Red” back in 1988 when he attended the same school. A large banner

was hung from the high school’s fence over the weekend, where teammates and residents have been leaving notes and good byes, like Isaiah’s, which reads: “Rest in peace Adrian. You were a good friend and even though it’s only been a day I miss you already. See you soon my boy.” Assemblymember Roger Hernandez released the following statement regarding the crash that killed 10 people last Thursday Thursday: “Our hearts and prayers go out to the families for those students and staff members who lost their lives in last night’s Northern California crash. I am saddened to hear of such an unfortunate incident occurring during an exciting time when students and their families are finalizing their decisions on where to attend school in the fall. The El Monte community suffered a tremendous loss in a time of joy for many students who have yet to decide their future. I want to thank the California Highway Patrol, the Orland Rural Fire District and countless public safety personnel for their dedication and assistance they provided at the scene. I also want to thank El Monte Union High School District Board of Education, Superintendent and staff for their compassionate leadership during this time.” A funeral fund has been set up to benefit the family. If you wish to give, visit YouCaring.com and write “Adrian Castro” in the Search Fundraisers box.

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.

Los Angeles Supervisors to take on new look It’s no secret. Los Angeles County is huge. And following this year’s elections, it will also have new leadership. Retiring from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is Gloria Molina and Zev Yaroslavsky. And being term-limited are Don Knabe and Michael Antonovich. The end is coming quickly for Molina, who represents the First District, and Yaroslavsky, with the election taking place during the June primary election. The run-off will take place during the November general election. So, who will replace them? Former U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis served that post under President Obama from 2009 through 2013 and was the first Latino women in the U.S. Cabinet. She also served as a member of Congress and said she wants to focus on creating jobs and economic development, in addition to working on law enforcement and children’s issues. El Monte Council Member Juventino “J” Gomez is also vying for the First District seat. He has served as a Los Angeles County employee for nearly 40 years, including

By SHEL SEGAL serving as Antonovich’s deputy in the San Gabriel Valley. Challenging Gomez and Solis is April Saucedo Hood. Hood is a law enforcement officer with the Long Beach Unified School District. Before that, she was a patrol officer in the Downey Police Department. The First District includes East Los Angeles, Bell, El Monte, La Puente, West Covina, Baldwin Park, Pomona and Claremont. The Third District includes most of the San Fernando Valley, but also some of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the country, including Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Brentwood and the Pacific Palisades. Former state lawmaker Sheila Kuehl, former Santa Monica Mayor Bobby Shriver, West Hollywood Councilman John Duran and former Malibu Mayor Pamela Conley Ulich have faced off in several debates. Also running are former television producer Eric Preven, environmentalist Douglas Fay, math tutor Yuval Daniel Kremer, and Hollywood lighting technician Rudy Melendez. According to a published report, Los Angeles County has more than 10

million people with more than 4,000 square miles, is more populous than all but seven states, and its board manages an annual budget of about $25 billion. Supervisors wield both executive and legislative powers, and are in charge of implementing not only county programs, but also federal and state programs, including the Affordable Health Care Act, according to that report. They administer the budget of the independently elected sheriff, and manage dozens of departments that provide law enforcement, emergency response, health care, welfare services, housing, environmental protection, restaurant inspections and many other aspects of daily life, according to that report. They oversee the county’s foster care and juvenile justice systems, and operate several hospitals, parks, animal shelters and senior centers. And supervisors also serve on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which operates the county’s vast mass transit system, according to that report.

Arcadia High catcher says there’s no “I” in team If you want to talk baseball with Arcadia High catcher Michael Luna, it’s fun to do. Just don’t talk about him individually. It’s all about the team. Luna, though, is having a great season, hitting a solid .295 through last Friday. When asked about his year, he turned the answer around. “It’s going really well,” Luna said. “Our team this year has grown a lot since fall ball, since the beginning of the year. We always have a lot to learn. We make a couple errors here and there. But we’re a solid team.” He added the team’s pitching staff is getting it done and making it easy for him behind the plate. “I wasn’t doing too well at the beginning of the season, but I’m doing better now,” Luna said. “I’ve had my ups and downs. Catching has been going really well. Our ace Joey (Harmon) has been throwing really well. He’s making me look good. We have a really good pitching

By SHEL SEGAL staff and we have a lot of young talent. Luna also said his batting average comes with a lot of practice. “I’ve been hitting after practice, concentrating during practice,” he said. “Just hitting, hitting, hitting. Everything has always been about hitting. Hitting off the tee. Hitting after practice. When I’m successful it’s when I’m seeing the ball really well. When I do see the ball really well that’s when I’m successful.” And why play catcher? While Luna is 5-foot-9 and 140 pounds, he said it’s just his natural position. “Ever since I was little I always caught,” he said. “My family always had me catch. I knew to get on varsity the quickest was would be catching. I know I could play outfield. But the reason I catch is I’ve always grown up a catcher.” His coach, Nick Lemas, said Luna is a great player to have on the team. “He’s doing a good job behind the plate,” Le-

mas said of Luna. “He’s a leader on our team. He’s a really good kid, really hard worker. He’s having a little bit of success, but he’s getting better. He’s a team guy. He really cares about the team and making the team better. He’s the type of kid who asks questions and wants to learn. He’s always looking to improve. He can be one of the better catchers in the area.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com. Follow him via Twitter @segallanded.)

San Gabriel United says massage business laws too little, too late By Shel Segal The San Gabriel City Council recently passed an amendment to its ordinance to regulate the growth and operations of massage parlors in the Mission City. But some in town think it was too little, too late. According to Mary Ann Baldonado of the citizens’ group San Gabriel United, there are more than 50 massage parlors in a city of just four square miles. And that’s just too many. “We have more than any of our surrounding communities,” Baldonado said. “Alhambra has six and Monterey Park has way less than we have and they’re twice the size we are.” Baldonado said she asked the San Gabriel City Council for quite some time to do something about it, as many massage parlors are thought by some residents to be engaging in illicit activities. “Every time we went to city council and complained they kept saying, especially (San Gabriel Mayor) John Harrington, ‘There’s nothing we can do,’” Baldonado

said. “I think they finally got tired of me going to every council meeting.” Baldonado added she heard back from the council that they were businesses in town and there was nothing that could be done about them. “A lot of them are not illegal or illicit, but there are some, and (the council) kept saying there weren’t any (engaging in illegal activities),” she said. That just wasn’t the case, Harrington said, adding the city has been cracking down on massage parlors for several years now. “We’ve adopted the maximum ordinance we can under state law,” Harrington said. “This really started in 2009. We were one of the very first ones to see what we could do and could not do under the law.” The main feature of the amendment is that the massage parlor owner is now responsible for the illegal acts of his employees or contractors. “We’re slowly improving the ordinance,” Har-

rington said. “It wasn’t anything earth shattering.” Harrington added Maldonado’s group San Gabriel United was founded by Denise Menchaca, a former San Gabriel Unified School District board member who is planning on running for city council in 2015, and said the noise surrounding massage parlors is just “political.” “It’s create an issue or why run,” Harrington said. “But we’ve been on the forefront of letting our citizens know how many massage parlors are out there. To say the city has done nothing is false and baseless. We’ve been the most proactive city in Southern California.��� And he said the city’s law enforcement has been hard at work policing the city’s massage parlors. “We’ve had arrests under the law,” Harrington said. “We’ve had sweeps. To say we haven’t done anything is either ignorant of what we’ve done or not telling the truth.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

Science gets top marks at PUSD By Shel Segal If you’re interested in science it’s good to be in Pasadena. With scientists from Caltech and JPL judging, the Pasadena Unified School District held its Innovation Exposition on Friday at Blair High, which gave students in grades 4 through 8 a chance to show off what they have learned in science. “This Innovation Exposition is taking the science fair to a new level,” said Jodi Marchesso, district coach for the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math program, or STEM. “The students chose from five categories they could participate in: reverse engineering, innovation, invention, science fiction or scientific inquiry. Students submitted their projects and set up and were judged by scientists, engineers, Caltech students.” More than 185 projects representing more than 300 students were submitted to the exposition, Marchesso said. “All those volunteers came in and interviewed students in grades 4 through 8,” she said. “But a lot of our older students chose not to compete. They didn’t want to be judged, just be showcased.”

So, what did the students study? One third grade class took apart a clothes pin to see how clothes pins worked. Another student took apart a vacuum cleaner. They had to identify each part of the product and how it relates to the whole, Marchesso said. One more student tested the structural strength of egg shells to see if buildings could be built with the same structural strength. And someone even re-invented the Batmobile, Marchesso added. “We wanted students to enjoy science in a variety of ways,” she said. Marchesso said learning about science is something she hopes these students will take with them for a lifetime. “My real hope is that they enjoyed the project and then

enjoyed science,” she said. “I want them to learn more about science throughout the process, but for me, my goal is to put a focus on science, not that it’s following a list of steps year after year, but taking it all apart and building something new, that’s what scientists do all day. I’m just trying to spark that interest in our students young.” Science seemed to have rubbed off on 13-year-old eighth grader Samarjit Rana. He said he learned much from doing his project. “I learned the effects of solar power and how useful it can be,” Samarjit said. “It’s good to help the environment.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

55 percent of Americans have no will or estate plan Research shows Americans are coming up short when it comes to being financially prepared. In fact, LexisNexis reports that more than 55 percent of American adults do not have a will or estate plan. A study by LIMR, a financial research company, revealed 50 percent of U.S. households say they need more life insurance. When it comes to monitoring finances, American consumers don’t fare much better: the Federal Trade Commission reports that one in five consumers had an error on at least one of their credit reports. So, what should people do to improve their financial readiness? How vital is financial spring cleaning to overall financial health? “It is very important. But keeping your financial house in order often is one of those things that gets pushed down on the priority list,” said Tena Lozano, consumer advocacy manager for the California Credit Union League. Lozano recommended people examine their financial situation at least annually, and even more frequently after reaching retirement age. “A will or estate plan is one of the most important things you can do for

By Shel Segal your family,” Lozano said. “Having a will avoids a great deal of unnecessary legal action for the family.” She also recommended updating a living will each year as well, and especially when there’s a major life event like the birth of a child or a change in marital status. Lozano said it is also important for people to check their account balances and statements regularly. “It is also extremely important to know what is in your credit report,” she said. “People often are surprised at what is in their credit report when it gets pulled for a loan. Checking your report annually will help you keep it free from errors that could potentially cause you to pay more for a loan.” Here are 10 tips for putting your financial house in order: 1. Update your will as needed. 2. Take a video tour of your house for insurance documentation and store it in a safe deposit box. 3. Make sure your personal information is up to date with all financial vendors. 4. Update the beneficiaries for all your accounts and insurance poli-

cies. 5. Review your insurance coverage and make necessary adjustments. 6. Check your credit report carefully for any errors. You can request a free copy of your credit report by visiting www.annualcreditreport.com. 7. Reassess your retirement plan and monitor retirement accounts. 8. Examine your loans for refinancing opportunities. You may be able to lower your monthly payment or pay the loan off sooner. One option is to seek out the services of your local credit union, which often can provide lower rates and loan fees than other financial institutions. 9. Go through financial files and toss what you don’t need. Keep tax returns forever, but throw away supporting documents after six years. Be sure to shred any sensitive information. 10. Make a comprehensive list of financial information including all accounts, property deeds, insurance policies, estate plan and living will. Make sure a spouse or family member knows where to access the records if the need arises. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com. He can be followed via Twitter @segallanded.)

‘61 Aston Martin DB4 and ‘67 E-Type steal the show at The Petersen By Terry Miller Last week. Beacon Media got a sneak peek at the new exhibit which features twelve celebrities—ranging from rock ‘n roll legends, critically acclaimed film directors, actors and world renown car collectors—favorite sports coupe. The exhibit, which is now open, showcases some of the most beautiful sports coupes ever designed. The selected sports coupes and their celebrity curators are: • 1948 Jaguar Custom “Black Pearl” chosen by Metallica’s James Hetfield • 1954 Plymouth Explorer Concept chosen by film director and producer, Francis Ford Coppola • 1955 MercedesBenz 300 SL Gullwing chosen by world renowned car collector, Bruce Meyer • 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Zagato chosen by Jaguar’s Director of Design, Ian Callum • 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO chosen by Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason • 1963 Ferrari Berlinetta Lusso chosen by comedian and TV host, Adam Carolla • 1963 Chevrolet

Corvette Stingray chosen by Top Gear USA hosts: Tanner Foust, Adam Ferrara and Rutledge Wood • 1964 Porsche 356SC chosen by actor and race car driver, Patrick Dempsey • 1967 Jaguar E-Type chosen by American racer and team owner, Bobby Rahal • 1968 Ford GT40 Mark III chosen by Chief Creative Officer of Pixar and Disney, John Lasseter • 1974 Iso Grifo chosen by AC/DC’s Brian Johnson • 1991 Acura NSX chosen by Motor Trend Magazine’s Angus MacKenzie “As we’re about to launch the new F-TYPE Coupe, we are proud to be involved with an exhibit that celebrates game-changing coupes,” said Jeff Curry, Brand Vice President, Jaguar. “This new approach of curating diverse opinions from a range of automotive enthusiasts brings a real energy to the exhibit and fits the Petersen perfectly. One of the great things about being a car lover is that we can all have our own point of view on what makes a sports coupe deserv-

ing to be part of the ‘World’s Greatest.’” With such a broad history, narrowing the greatest sports coupes ever down to twelve choices was no easy task. The exhibit will also feature photography by Scott Williamson, which will highlight important sports coupes that were not included by any of the celebrity curators but deserve recognition. “Sports coupes are the reason most of us fell in love with the automobile in the first place,” said executive director of the Petersen, Terry Karges. “These vehicles represent the pinnacle of art, design, engineering and performance and have been built all over the world. Choosing a dozen sports coupes to represent the finest of the breed was no easy task, which is why we invited the world’s most prominent car collectors to guest curate this exhibit. We’re honored to work with all twelve of these individuals as well as with Jaguar, a company that has well earned its legacy building beautiful vehicles.” • “The World’s Greatest Sports Coupes” exhibit runs April 10 through

October 18, 2014 at the Petersen • Guest curators include Patrick Dempsey, Francis Ford Coppola, Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason and others • Exhibit highlights the greatest sports coupes of the past century, ranging from the Jaguar E-Type to the Corvette Stingray and the Acura NSX, plus nine other vehicles • Short video pieces will play in the exhibit, featuring each guest curator and their personal relationship with the car that they have chosen

Cars are the stars of Foothill Unity Center “Fabulous ‘50s” Golden Plate Awards Offer expires 4/23/14

Toyota 1/2 pg V 031314 4C JG

When Foothill Unity Center’s Golden Plate Awards committee chose a “Fabulous ‘50s” theme for the 15th annual event on April 26, they knew the evening wouldn’t be complete without wheels. Fortunately, the Center’s fans include an array of high-octane car buffs, so the biggest challenge was editing the final lineup. Some seventeen classic '50s cars will set the tone for the evening at Pasadena’s Trinity Ballroom. Many of the lenders are members of Street Rods Forever, hosts of Monrovia’s Annual Hot Rod, Custom Car & Motorcycle Show and loyal Center supporters for years. Among the classic collector treasures on view will be a purple 1958 Chevy Impala and a black 1956 Chevy Bel Air from Street Rods co-founder Joe Eddy, plus a red 1957 Chevy convertible and a white 1955 Chevy Corvette babied by owner

Robert Green. Arriving guests will be hard-pressed to pick a favorite from the gleaming lineup. One contender is an exquisite cream 1956 Ford T-Bird on loan from Brad and Vicky Balmot of Arcadia. The Thunderbird was first unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in February 1954 and sold as a 1955 model. It was inspired by — and positioned to compete directly with — the Chevrolet Corvette. Despite its powerful V8 engine, the car was marketed as a personal luxury vehicle, not a sports car. It was a great success, outselling the Corvette by more than 20 to 1 in the mid ‘50s. In 1956, Ford added portholes to its removable hardtop and introduced a Continentalstyle spare tire carrier. The Balmots’ T-Bird, acquired over twenty years ago, has had only three owners and is largely in original condition.

Up to 400 guests are expected for the event, the Center's only major fundraiser of the year. The evening will honor four recipients with Golden Plate Awards: Cynthia Kurtz, president and chief executive officer of the San Gabriel Valley Economic Partnership (Heart in Hand Humanitarian); Sierra Madre fundraiser Colleen McEvoy (Neighbors Helping Neighbors/Volunteer); Simplicity Bank (Neighbors Helping Neighbors/Corporate); and a consortium of 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 (Neighbors Helping Neighbors/Faith Based). Tickets to the Golden Plate Awards are $150 each and may be ordered online. For more information, visit www.foothillunitycenter.org.

Possible festival at Rose Bowl Continued from page 1

and in the surrounding Brookside Golf Course, with the event appealing to a wide age range and be unique to Pasadena, according to a published report. Following an environmental impact report, the first festival could be in June of next year, according to that report. The proposed festival is projected to bring in a large revenue for the Rose Bowl and the San Gabriel Valley community, with it running two or three days over a weekend, making it like Indio’s Coachella or Outside Lands in San Francisco, according to that report. However, officials have already said camping

Officials have said they are hopeful for the festival to become a reality. Having the festival, they said, could bring a new generation to the Rose Bowl and “take full advantage of a costly renovation, which the stadium will be paying off for the next three decades,” according to that report. In addition, officials said if the festival does happen that they will proceed with “extra care and outreach” in dealing with the residents around the stadium while in the planning stages of the event, according to that report.

would be banned as it would be a stadium event. And camping would probably not sit well with the residents in the Arroyo neighborhoods, according to that report. Officials said that the city of Pasadena has begun work on a “preliminary environment study” on the likelihood of a festival. They added if all goes well they will go to the Pasadena City Council in May to try and get funding for an environmental impact report, according to that report. And if the festival does come to fruition, officials said the stadium would temporarily be out of the business of trying to lure an NFL team to Pasadena, according to that report.
