Arcadia Unified bans car washes to support drought efforts

BY SHEL SEGAL With a $10 million offer recently rejected by the Mater Dolorosa Passionist Retreat Center to prevent the sale and development of some of the center’s open space in northern Sierra Madre, a spokesman for the passionists said it was for good reason. Cameron Thornton, who works with the passionists, said while the land in question is valued around at least $20 million – and as high as $40 million – he is not sure the group the Coalition to Save Mater Dolorosa could have come through with its plan. And with the recent failure of Measure UUT – the user utility tax extension – in this month’s municipal Please see page 22

Jim Henwood, CEO of Fairplex, announced the decision along with representatives of Los

In light of the severe drought conditions in California, the Arcadia Unified School District will no longer allow its schools and clubs to hold community car wash fundraisers with the ban having started on Monday, which was Earth Day. While many of these car washes serve as significant fundraisers to support different schools and their clubs, the district’s mission of being environmentally conscious will take priority during California’s drought, said Joel Shawn, district superintendent. “We want to continue to be leaders in this community and globally,” Shawn said.

As Auntie Acid said, "I'm not sure if life is passing me by or trying to run me over." Whatever. I definitely wish my body could move as fast as time. Easter came and went without me writing a column relating to it. Now I'm too bushed from celebrating it to do so. My friend gave me the following goodies from the internet that kind of, sort of, could be connected. So, tired as I am, if you and Mr. or Ms. Internet don't mind I'll share them with you. Ponder and enjoy: Don't wait for 6 strong men to take you to church. Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisers. It is easier to preach

ten sermons than it is to live one. The good Lord didn't create anything without a purpose, but mosquitoes come close. When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there. People are funny; they want the front of the bus, middle of the road, and back of the church. Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on the front door forever. We're called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges. God himself doesn't propose to judge a man until he is dead. So why should you? Some minds are like concrete, thoroughly mixed up and permanently set. Stop, Drop and Roll won't work in Hell. Forbidden fruits create

many jams. Coincidence is when God chooses to remain anonymous. Don't put a question mark where God put a period. God loves everyone, but probably prefers 'fruits of the spirit' over 'religious nuts!' If God is your co-pilot, swap seats! God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage. He who angers you, controls you! Peace starts with a smile. The task ahead of us is never as great as the Power behind us. You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him/her. And my favorite at this time---Don't let your worries get the best of you; remember Moses started out as a basket case.

The problem

Accounting Vera Shamon

The biggest problem that the people of Sierra Madre have is on out-of-control government that is constantly working on every way that they can to enslave the people and private property. They do so at the neglect of the public areas that they are supposed to maintain and serve the people. They have sublet the maintenance of the parks and swimming pool They have also stopped the Dial-a ¬Ride service and all the City equipment is going to waste or has already been destroyed. The City has 64 bookkeeping accounts which include all of the volunteer activities that the City has taken over. If they gave half of those accounts back to the people, they could reduce some of the overhead work and taxpayer expense. If they did their own maintenance of the parks, pool and Diala-Ride, they could likewise reduce the spending of these items. The City should also see how many sections of the ordinances that can repeal

Dear Editor: Your April 17 issue had an article on Pasadena Armenian Genocide Memorial to be built in Memorial Park. As a youth I remember playing in this park and it was erected as a patriotic park to honor US war veterans-especially World War 1. It’s difficult to believe this park will be used to memorialize a foreign genocide that occurred in Turkey. Maybe

that mandate control of private property. Start with the so-called "street trees", which belong to the property owner and strip out all the mandatory requirements and make them voluntary. It starts with all the fees that are charged, regulations on the size of homes that the owner can build, their battle against twostory houses and deny other items that they can think of in order to prevent the owner from doing what they want to build on their property. Ask any realtor and they will tell you that the more square footage the home has, the more it will sell for. Haven't we had large two-story homes in town for more than fifty years? They lose sight that the more a home sells for the more money the City receives in property taxes. This says nothing about the penalties that the city has imposed on the use of water, which likewise reduces their income. If the City would only focus on doing their job themselves and quit all the conversation of selling the Water

the city should build a memorial to Japanese Americans living in Pasadena who were shipped to Gila River, Arizona US prison camps in April 1942 because of Pearl Harbor. Ironically sons of these prisoners were serving in the US Army in the Pacific and European war zones. At least Pasadena should have honored the Japanese American Medal of Honor winner in Me-

Department, or the sewer or the Police Department and the Fire Department, then people could also reduce the overhead personnel and generally downsize the government. They should table the discussion of gray-water and the fees on fireworks. Perhaps the only thing that the people can hope for is to see a complete change of attitude with the election of these new council persons. It took years for the government to get in this shape and it will be no easy job to unravel their grip on the people and for them to reduce their foolish spending and spend the revenue to properly maintain property of the public sector. This goes far beyond simply fixing the leaking water mains or sewers and this discussion only scratches the surface of what needs correcting. The job is massive and it will require a strong back and constant attention. Hopefully, the new electors will start the change as they are sworn in and seated. Sierra Madre Watchman

morial Park which as mentioned was for American war veterans. It should also be mentioned the memorial Pasadena should erect for the patriotic Japanese American war veterans who died while their parents were in US prison camps. Pasadena city council should reconsider building a memorial for a foreign country. Yours truly, Calvin Tajima, Altadena

14th Annual Oak Avenue Intermediate School Annual Civil War Day April 18, 2014

Wells Fargo announces Million Dollar donation to Villa Esperanza Services during 'Autism Awareness Month'

By Jessica Goold - 8th Grade Oak Avenue US History Teacher

Funding granted to help meet urgent need and nonprofit capital campaign goal

“Inspiring, interesting and informative,” were the words eighth grader Sara Sepulveda, used to describe Oak Avenue Intermediate’s 14th annual Civil War Day. “I feel like I experienced the Civil War,” shared Robert Ferrara, a fellow eighth grader. All of the 8th grade students and many community members participated in this special day. Everyone attending rotated through multiple stations. Students made fresh butter, learned to square dance and saw amazing Civil War regiments, like the New York Zouave’s. At one station First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln shared her life story. Eighth grader Vickie Jiang, was so moved she remarked, “Mrs. Lincoln’s life was very tragic.” Students also got to hear what life was like for women during the Civil War. Madison Barnes, commented that “beauty was painful in the 1800’s.”

Dylan Scott said his favorite part was “learning about the field piece for the cannons.” Participants saw a real muskets fired by an infantry and a cannon fired by artillery re-enactors. They were able to talk to a cavalry officer Smith and interact with his horse Justice. Finally, they got to

hear Civil War music by the celebrated Americus Brass Band. This was a wonderful experience for all involved and an incredible learning opportunity for students and adults alike. Daniel Granger said it best, “Civil War day has changed my perspective of that time period.”

This Autism Awareness Month, Wells Fargo announces a million dollar grant to Villa Esperanza Services for the most urgent needs of their $18 million capital campaign. Villa Esperanza Services is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the care and education of children, adults and seniors with developmental, intellectual and other disabilities. The announcement comes during the month of April, recognized as Autism Awareness Month, helping raise awareness about the spectrum disorder that is currently suspected to affect up to 1 in 68 children, with the rate even higher in boys with 1 in 42 diagnosed with the disorder in the United States. “Autism is one of the fastest growing childhood epidemics of our time. Soon these autistic children will be adults, and it is more important than ever for professionals and parents to increase their knowledge about successful treatment models, and for society to create systems that acknowledge the needs of its citizens on the autism spectrum,” explains Ricki Robinson, MD, a clinical leader holding a Masters of Public Health and Villa Esperanza Services board member. “Villa Esperanza Services is truly part of the daily solution for families

and one of the only nonprofits extending full continuity of care, helping children and adults alike.” The capital campaign entitled “Hope Moves Forward” reflects the organization’s namesake meaning “House of Hope” founded by a group of mothers in 1961 to help their children with disabilities. “Due to the urgent need in our community, and as a result of the passion and confidence we have in the mission of Villa Esperanza Services, Wells Fargo is proud to support the organization during this critical time,” said Joe Defur, Wells Fargo Private Bank senior managing director for California and Villa Esperanza board member. “For the past 21 years Wells Fargo executives have served on Villa Esperanza Services’ board of directors to help bring hope to families in Southern California, and the need for improvements at Villa Esperanza has never been more vital.” The first phase of the capital campaign master plan is a nine million dollar goal that will allow the organization to build a new school and purchase and renovate a new permanent home for the adult day program. This will allow for an increase in school enrollment by 41 percent and 36 percent in the adult day program. Villa

Esperanza Services plans to break ground in July 2015. Phase two of the capital campaign will begin shortly thereafter, and is another nine million dollar goal, which will help complete the renovation including new occupational and physical therapy facilities and administrative offices. “At Wells Fargo we know we can only be as strong as the strength of the communities we serve, and with autism rates on the rise it is more important than ever to help the professionals and families in need of successful treatment models and programs,” said David DiCristofaro, Wells Fargo president of Greater Los Angeles. “Wells Fargo believes so strongly in the urgent need and effectiveness of the services Villa Esperanza provides that this donation is coming from our national philanthropy budget and is above and beyond our annual local giving. When you see the dedication of the staff and the amazing outcomes of the students, it becomes crystal clear that the work Villa Esperanza is doing is making an important impact.” In 2013 Wells Fargo was named top corporate philanthropist locally and nationally, donating $275 million to nonprofit and community organizations across the country, with $29 million donated in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

California home sales spring higher in March Diminishing affordability slowing market, A.A.R. reports California’s housing market ticked upward in March to reach the highest level in four months, but sales were still lower than a year ago as declining housing affordability continues to put downward pressure on the market, the ARCADIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (A.A.R.) said. Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 367,000 units in March, according to information collected by C.A.R. from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. March marked the fifth straight month that sales were below the 400,000 level and the eighth straight decline on a year-over-year basis. Sales in March increased 1.4 percent from a revised 361,790 in February but were down 12.3 percent from a revised 418,310 in March 2013. The statewide sales figure represents what would be the total number

of homes sold during 2014 if sales maintained the March pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales. “While the demand for housing was up from February, the market is taking a hit from lower housing affordability compared to a year ago, which led to a decline in home sales from last year,” said 2014 C.A.R. President Mike Vachani. “Moreover, concerns over tighter lending standards and increased borrowing costs are also contributing factors to the sluggish market as they both negatively impact the bottom line of home buyers who obtain financing through mortgages.” The statewide median price of an existing, singlefamily detached home reversed a two-month decline and rose 7.7 percent from February’s median price of $404,250 to $435,470 in March. March’s price was 14.9 percent higher than the revised $379,000 recorded

in March 2013, marking more than two full years of consecutive year-over-year price increases and the 21st straight month of doubledigit annual gains, as sales of higher priced homes made up a larger share of the market compared to a year ago. The median sales price is the point at which half of homes sold for more and half sold for less; it is influenced by the types of homes selling as well as a general change in values. “While housing inventory has loosened since last year, it’s still below what’s considered typical in a normal market,” said A.A.R. CEO Andrew Cooper. “Many of the listings continue to be priced above what the market will bear and are not moving. As such, even with improved home prices over the past year, new listings are lagging because would-be sellers who have limited options on where to move are hesitant to put their properties on the market.”

Nurse at Sylmar Hospital stabbed in critical condition During the early morning hours of Sunday, a man entered the Sylmar hospital and stabbed an on-duty nurse multiple tgimes. Just after 2:00 A.M., the suspect, later identified as Romero Carnalla, 26 years old, of Los Angeles, entered the hospital, bypassed the weapons screening area, and fled into the building, away from security and law enforcement officers. As deputies and officers searched the hospital, they heard a woman scream and

went to the source of the outcry. They located the victim, a female adult, and found she was stabbed an unknown number of times in the upper and lower torso. The victim was transported for medical treatment and is in critical condition. A knife was recovered at the scene. Carnalla was taken into custody. Suspect Carnailla was booked at the Inmate Reception Center for Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Battery, and is being held

in lieu of $55,000 bail. His booking photo is currently unavailable due to the suspect being treated at a local hospital. County Services Bureau detectives are handling the investigation. There is no further information available at this time. County Services Bureau is a countywide operation responsible for law enforcement in six major Los Angeles County hospitals and nearly 200 Los Angeles County facilities.

LOCAL VETERAN AND HIS PRODUCTS ARE

100% AMERICAN! It feels great walking into a family business owned by a veteran, and trying out mattresses MADE IN THE USA! Paul Niederer is a Rancho Cucamonga resident who runs Cost Plus Mattress, which is located just a short drive away in scenic La Verne. The drive is well worth it. On a recent Saturday, I accompanied my wife Janet to Paul's store. We met Paul's two teenage sons getting ready to make a delivery. Paul's daughter was sitting crossed-legged on a soft mattress handling the day's bookkeeping. The family that works together, stays together! Paul himself was busy encouraging a customer to go and check out the prices at other mattress stores! This guy actually lets customers out the door. Actually, he urges them out the door to go and check out his competitors. He knows those customers will come back! This guy is old-fashioned American honest! He doesn't sell the big name brands. Instead, he touts the benefits of his pure Latex Bliss, his bestselling mattress by far. Latex mattresses were popular back in the old days, when mattresses were handed down to the next generation. Some lasted 40 years! But the big corporations realized that they could not sell beds and say, "see you in 20 years." They began making beds that would wear out. Paul calls it "manufactured obsolescence." The big mattress companies sold the public on "one-sided" mattresses so you couldn't double their life by flipping them over. Then they started saying that mattresses double in weight due to dust mites, dead skin cells, sweat, oil, and other disgusting pests and particles. The public now believes that a mattress lasts about 8

years. "What a crock!" says Paul. "People have come into my store saying they have had their mattress for 10 years, and they know it should be replaced after 8. I tell them they should change mattresses only when they are uncomfortable on it, or if they are changing to a different size mattress." His Latex Bliss comes with a 20-year guarantee right off the bat. It should last at least 25 to 30 years. Paul asked me if I had any nagging pains. I told him I didn't like to sleep on my left side because my hip had been bothering me for weeks. He told me to lay on his Latex Bliss.... and turn to my left side! I did so, reluctantly and ever so gingerly. To my utter astonishment, my hip felt great! Unbelievable. Janet and I are saving to buy a king-sized Latex Bliss in April. One hundred percent latex mattresses are natural, from the rubber tree. They're breathable, naturally hyper allergenic, anti-fungal, dust mite resistant, and mold and mildew proof. Since they are made of ventilated rubber, they dissipate heat, so you sleep cooler. Go see Paul. We like him, and we trust him. He offers good quality at low prices, and we appreciate a relationship with our local business partners. Paul says, "I want my customers to come back. That's why I sell a great night's sleep at shockingly low prices. If you're not happy with any mattress I sell, I will give you 100% of your money back. That's how I sleep at night." Sleep at night? This guy has a conscience! He cares. Sounds like a good old-fashioned American family businessman, made just like his mattresses - 100% IN AMERICA!!

Attempted murder suspect, Alfred Tapia, arrested by LASD In December 2013, 34-year-old Alfred Tapia, a known gang member from the Whittier area of Los Angeles County had been identified as being responsible for three separate vicious stabbing attacks in the cities of Pico Rivera, Whittier, and Chino. At the time of the reported crimes, Tapia was the subject of a massive manhunt by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and United States Marshal’s Office. Tapia was ultimately located in late December 2013, when he was arrested and subsequently convicted of an armed robbery that occurred in Tijuana, Mexico. On Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at approximately12:00 p.m., Mexican Authorities in Tijuana, Mexico released Tapia to United States Immigration Customs Enforcement officials at the International Border

at San Ysidro. Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Operation Safe Streets Bureau (Gang Detail) took Tapia into custody and subsequently booked him

at Pico Rivera Sheriff’s Station for arrest warrants and a parole violation. He is currently awaiting arraignment on multiple counts of attempt murder and has no bail set at this time.

After 30 years in the fire service, Arcadia Fire Chief, Tony Trabbie, will retire on April 30, 2014. Chief Trabbie has been with the City of Arcadia for 27 years, progressing through the ranks from Firefighter to Fire Chief. His service throughout has been exemplary, always demonstrating outstanding leadership skills and the ability to effectively manage the technical and administrative functions of the Fire Department while maintaining a constant commitment to excellence and improvement. Chief Trabbie has not only been a consummate leader and an inspiration to members of the Arcadia Fire Department, he has also been a role model for all City employees. Reflecting on the transition to retirement, Chief Trabbie said: “It has been a blessing to devote my life to the protection and care of others over the past 30 years in the fire service. In particular, I am honored to have called Arcadia my home and the men and women of the Arcadia Fire Department my family for over 27 years. I cannot imagine a finer organization. I am privileged to have worked side-by-side with wise and devoted civic leaders and employees who care deeply about the past, present, and future of the City of Arcadia. While it is difficult to step away from what I love, my heart will remain with my Arcadia family.” Chief Trabbie began his career in fire service in 1984 as a Fire Suppression Aide for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. In 1987 he was hired by the City of Arcadia as a Firefighter and was later assigned as a Fire

Paramedic, followed by a promotion to Fire Captain serving in the Fire Prevention Bureau and as an Engine Company and Truck Company Captain. From there, he was promoted to Battalion Chief, Deputy Fire Chief, Acting Fire Chief and ultimately Fire Chief in 2007. Among Tony’s many accomplishments during his tenure as Chief, is his ability to maintain the Arcadia Fire Department’s status as a Class 1 agency, providing Arcadians with the best fire suppression, fire prevention, emergency medical, and disaster management services. The Chief’s educational accomplishments include an Associate in Science Degree in Fire Technology from Pasadena City College, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Fire Protection Administration from Cogswell College National Fire Academy. His state certifications include Fire Apparatus Driver Operator, Fire Safety Officer, Strike Team Leader, Fire Officer, Chief Officer, USAR Team Leader, Heavy Rescue Instructor, as well as a number of additional certifications in management, supervision, command and fire ground operations. Tony is an active member of the Los

Angeles Area Fire Chiefs Association and the Foothill Fire Chiefs Association. “We are losing a valuable member of the City family this month, and an employee who has been devoted to the residents of Arcadia,” said Mayor John Wuo as he commented on the retirement of Fire Chief Tony Trabbie. “I have worked with Chief Trabbie for many years and have found his extensive knowledge of the fire service, his commitment to the community and to the department, and his leadership and professionalism to be beyond reproach. I know I speak for many Arcadians in thanking Tony for his service and in wishing him well in retirement.” “Tony has had an extraordinarily positive impact on the Arcadia Fire Department and the City of Arcadia,” said City Manager Dominic Lazzaretto. “His high standards and dedication are evident in everything he does, as is his cooperative approach to doing business. Tony has served Arcadia well and will be missed by many, both professionally and personally.” It is expected that a new Arcadia Fire Chief will be appointed in May.

San Gabriel residents on sewer fee Continued from page 1

If the proposed fee is approved, nearly $2 million per year would be received by the sewer, which would in turn use the funds for improvements to the city’s sewer system, according to that report. “The state has given the city eight years to complete the most dire repairs, and the city must provide quarterly updates on progress,” according to t hat report. In addition, San Gabriel is thought to be one of the last local San Gabriel Valley cities not to impose a sewer

fee on residents, according to that report. To make matters worse, there have been 13 sewage spills since 2007 throughout the city’s aged 72-mile system, resulting in thousands of gallons of untreated sewage being discharged, according to that report. The city also finds itself in trouble with the California Attorney General’s Office, which recently cited the city over its sewage system and is possibly looking into “lawsuit or major fines if the city does not comply

with the state requirements soon,” according to that report. City officials said recently the city has been working on a plan for the past 10 years to repair system, but to no avail, as $2 million could be taken out of the general fund, but added other city projects and services would have to be canceled, according to that report.

Opinion Chu’s National Recreation Area legislation As a former Mayor of Glendora, I, and several other elected and appointed officials in the San Gabriel Valley, have been talking about Congresswoman Judy Chu’s National Recreation Area (NRA) legislation and two other pieces, Wilderness and Wild & Scenic Rivers legislation. No official titles or bill numbers have been provided at this point. These pieces of legislation are the product of a 9-year San Gabriel Watershed & Mountains Special Resource Study presented April 2013. Initially, the Study proposed the San Gabriel Watershed Area be incorporated into the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy led by Joe Edmiston. Across the board, jurisdictions are strongly opposed to becoming a unit of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy (SMMC) An articles sent to me the best explanation why all are so adamantly opposed. Articles by Beth Barrett and Jack Cheevers, L.A. Times: 1. From Congress to the Governor's Office to local governments, Edmiston has created a political machine beginning in Gov. Edmund G. ``Jerry'' Brown's administration that exempts him from term limits, voters' displeasure and even from very much independent or fiscal oversight. 2. The conservancy's staff has been cut in half. Its capital budget, which swelled to $80 million in state bonds during the 1980s, now has no unencumbered funds left.

A quorum of this group is 10 members and can make decisions even if the full Council has not been appointed. Less than 50% and not directly elected by the public. The partnership may use Federal funds under a section not defined in the legislation and then give that money in

the form of grants to the State, political subdivisions of the State, nonprofit organizations, and other persons. Other persons? Who is that? Not defined. The public advisory council shall cease to exist 5 years after the management plans are completed or whenever the appointed members of the Partnership think is appropriate. How does this proposal improve what we in the San Gabriel Valley have already done? Who will oversee or control those plans after preparation and initial implementation of the Management Plan? What we have here is a group of people not directly elected by the public picking a committee and leader and establishing rules of operation guided by a federal bureaucracy all of whom will dictate to those within various jurisdictional boundaries who didn’t elect them.

Second oldest living Rose Queen lives in Pasadena

La Salle celebrates Grandparents Day

1941 Rose Queen dedicated first CA Freeway

Sally Rubsamen has done quite a lot in her 90 years orbiting the sun. Born August 23, 1923 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, she spent her early years there and in Lancaster, PA as well as a brief stint in Russia when her father took a job as part of Stalin’s 5-Year Plan. However, her father (and the family) left early when he started to be paid in Rubles instead of dollars as promised. Her family finally settled in La Canada. She attended Pasadena Jr College and was selected Queen of the 1941 Tournament of Roses, the youngest one at that time. Today, she is the second oldest living queen. Family lore has it that Sally met her future husband on January 1, 1941 when he drove one of the floats down the parade route. In June 1944, Sally married Charles W Rubsamen. They had two children, Chip and Anne, and raised them in Pasadena. As part of her duties as Tournament of Roses

Queen, Sally helped dedicate California’s first freeway. On December 30, 1940 the Arroyo Seco Parkway officially opened. Chip and Anne grew up calling it “Mom’s Freeway.” Fittingly, the milestone of its 70th anniversary made the first freeway the perfect subject for the first exhibit in Caltrans District 7’s new museum series where Sally was an honored guest. After leaving Pasadena Jr College, Sally enrolled in and then graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. Besides raising her family, Sally had two careers: first as a mathematician at JPL. She worked on several of the outer space projects such Mariner Mars and Voyager, and was one of only two women to work on the first globe of the moon made from photos sent back to earth – (the globe is now housed at the Smithsonian). She also had the distinction of working with Albert Einstein’s son. After a satisfying career

in space, Sally decided to pursue her love of law, earning a second degree and becoming a paralegal for a downtown LA law firm, where she specialized in estate planning. In addition to serving on the Pasadena Library Board, Sally has always loved to travel, whether by plane, boat or train. She was fortunate enough to travel throughout Europe and the Middle East. She is now happily a member of the Villa Gardens community.

Advancing Justice - LA ‘deeply concerned’ by Supreme Court Affirmative Action decision Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Los Angeles (Advancing Justice - LA) is deeply concerned by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Actionupholding Proposal 2, a 2006 Michigan ballot initiative amending the state constitution to prohibit race-conscious college admissions policies. The decision overturns the 2012 ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, which held that Proposal 2 impermissibly imposed heightened burdens on racial minorities advocating race-conscious admissions policies – burdens not shared by the majority. As Justice Sotomayor pointed out in dissent: “The effect of [Proposal 2] is that a white graduate of a public Michigan university who wishes to pass his historical privilege on to his children may freely lobby the board of that university in favor of an expanded legacy admissions policy, whereas a black Michigander who

was denied the opportunity to attend that very university cannot lobby the board in favor of a policy that might give his children a chance that he never had and that they might never have absent that policy.” The plurality decision by Justice Kennedy, who was joined by Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito, condones the entrenchment of this fundamentally unequal political system by disregarding the longstanding “political-process doctrine,” which prohibits the majority from creating a separate political process that makes it more difficult for racial minorities to enact beneficial legislation. “The passage of Proposal 2 demonstrates that race still matters and that the courts are more necessary than ever to protect the rights of minorities,” said Stewart Kwoh, president and executive director of Advancing Justice - LA. As Justice Sotomayor opined in dissent, “The

Constitution does not protect racial minorities from political defeat. But neither does it give the majority free rein to erect selective barriers against racial minorities. The politicalprocess doctrine polices the channels of change to ensure that the majority, when it wins, does so without rigging the rules of the game to ensure its success.” Despite the disappointing and harmful decision by the Supreme Court today, it is important to note that the Court did not address the merits of race-conscious admissions, which are still constitutional underFisher and Grutter. Advancing Justice - LA is committed to supporting race-conscious admissions policies and increasing access to higher education for all underrepresented and disadvantaged students. Senator Ed Hernandez also expressed concerns: “I am disappointed and find it inherently unfair that the Supreme Court decided to pre-

It might not be as grand as taking in Mass in St. Peter’s Square in Rome, but attending Easter sunrise services at the historic San Gabriel Mission is quite the splendid event. With more than 200 worshippers on hand for morning Mass and the 5K Run of St. John, Fr. Bruce Wellems of the mission said they were there for one reason. “It’s celebrating the resurrection of Christ,” Wellems said. “The sun is rising at this moment. We’ve got some runners ready for the run to Vincent Lugo Park.” Wellems said the mission has seen its share of Easter services over the years, with this year being no exception. “It’s a pretty historic site,” he said. “It was built in 1771. We had some terrific Easter vigils here (Saturday night). We had three of them going on – in Vietnamese, Spanish and English.” He added the Los Angeles community originally began at the site of the old mission more than 240 years

ago.

“These are the seeds that germinated that eventually founded Los Angeles,” Wellems said. “All of the hard work over the years, we are really grateful for the beauty around us. That’s what we celebrate.” Wellems said he wants people to know the mission is out in the community in a positive way. “What we want people to know is that we are a parish that’s building,” Wellems said. “We had a lot of young people involved this weekend. We had a lot of children

out walking in the streets. We want a church that out in the streets, that’s dirty, that’s meeting the poor. Roll up your sleeves and get to work. I think that’s one message we’re sending.” He also said the parish is working as one to do good in the community. “We’re united in this effort,” he said. “We’re making an effort to say we’re all one family and we got to get to those issues that the poor are teaching us about.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

Horse racing relocating to Los Alamitos this Fall Continued from page 1

Alamitos Race Course and the Thoroughbred Owners of California. “The only constant in life is change,” said Henwood in announcing the organization’s decision. “We have enjoyed a long and proud history of horse racing here at Fairplex, but with the limitations of our facility we made a strategic decision for the continued growth of the industry to reach out to Los Alamitos and seek to move our dates to their facility. By moving our dates to a new market on a one-mile track we think we can grow on the past success of our race meet.” Joe Morris, President of the Thoroughbred Owners of California, echoed Henwood’s sentiments concerning the move to Los Alamitos. “With the marketplace challenges horse racing faces it is more important than ever that we connect our sport with a new audience,” Morris stated. “Los Alamitos has made a tremendous investment in the past year to build a first class one-mile track, and they are located right in the middle of an exciting new market in Orange County. It is with great appreciation to Fairplex and their 70-plus years of racing tradition that we have worked in conjunction with them to facilitate this move.” The first thoroughbred meet at Los Alamitos is set to open on Thursday, July 3 with the $500,000 Los Alamitos Derby on July 5

highlighting the two-week stand. “Naturally we are excited about the prospect of adding additional dates to our 2014 thoroughbred racing calendar, and we are very appreciative to Fairplex for the opportunity to conduct their race meet here at Los Alamitos,” said Los Alamitos Racing Association VicePresident, Brad McKinzie. “We plan to immediately work with the CHRB and other industry stakeholders to make sure these racing dates are used to add value to the California thoroughbred racing calendar.” While Fairplex may be leaving the live racing world, the southern California facility will still play a major role in the sport’s future. Fairplex is home to the Finish Line Sports Grill, one of the state’s most successful satellite betting facilities. Henwood indicated that Fairplex has plans to greatly expand and upgrade that facility in the very near future. The 2014 Fairplex racing dates currently call for an 11-day meeting opening on September 5 and running through a September 21 closing day. TOC is the official organization serving new, veteran and future Thoroughbred owners in the state. It represents, advances, and protects owners’ interests and rights in legislative, administrative and business matters. www. toconline.com.

LASD secret ariel surveillance deemed “not suitable” The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department acknowledged this week that Compton residents were not notified of an airborne videosurveillance program that was tested in 2012. Sheriff’s Aero Bureau and Compton Sheriff’s personnel identified a number of challenges that rendered the system ineffective for the Department’s need to enhance public safety and impact criminal activity. The factors included the resolution of the video footage captured did not offer any detail which would allow the identification

of any individual. The detail provided would not allow the reviewer of the footage to discern gender, age, race, hair color or any other identifiable features. Another factor was that it was difficult to identify the difference between a subcompact vehicle and a full sized sports utility vehicle. Another decision not to pursue the use of the system was the fact that the footage could only be captured in black and white. The Sheriff’s Department did not keep or maintain any of the video footage captured during the short nine

day test deployment. “Hawkeye II Wide Area Airborne Surveillance System” was simply a system tested and evaluated as an option which would supplement cameras already deployed in the city of Compton. No notification to the residents was made because this system was being tested in a city where cameras were already deployed and the system was only being evaluated. Additionally, the limitation of the system would not allow for the identification of persons or vehicles. The system’s

lack of resolution in no way compromised the identity of any individual. The recordings reviewed by Department personnel were found to have no investigative value as discernable detail of gender, race, hair color or any other identifiable feature could not be made. The report noted people in Compton had heard little about the surveillance program. The department said 20 surveillance cameras are deployed in city parks and monitored to help keep the community safe.

Doo Dah Queen tryouts slated for May 25 By Terry Miller

It’s that time again. The Doo Dah Parade is coming November 15 and you know what that means…They need a Queen. Male or Female. Beast or Burden. Whatever floats your boat. The annual hunt for the new Doo Dah Queen has defied logic for hundreds of years and yet the global search has netted some fabulous and memorable queensnot soon to be forgotten. Take Queen Naughty Mickey….. who would have thought a sword wielding belly dancing reporter…would want to be Queen. Not only did she want it….she LIVES it, still to this day years after she was crowned. Forever, the lovely Naughty Mickie will always be a Doo Dah Queen. Each year American Legion Post 280 hosts the tryouts for the worldwide search for the new Doo Dah Queen. The daunting task of selecting the Queen, takes place May 25 at the Legion Hall by a select group of individuals with highly questionable tastes and backgrounds but nonetheless have already scoped out their judging tables and

Pasadena Showcase House now open By Susan Motander The Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts (PSHA) opened last Sunday. This is the 65th anniversary of the founding of the organization and its 50thdesign house. And it is an amazing house. Designed by Stiles O. Clements in 1915, the 4000 sq. ft. Tudor Revival style home sits on 3.5 acres of land. Clements is better known for his later designs including the Wiltern and El Capitan Theaters and the Richfield Tower in Downtown L.A. Perhaps his most famous creation was the “Swimnasium” he designed for Berverly Hills High School as it was featured in the Charleston Scene of It's a Wonderful Life in which Henry Fonda dances Donna Reed into the pool as the floor of the gym opens. In many ways, Clements various designs reflect the multiple styles of the 20th Century. He started with Arts and Crafts movement (including this home) and moved through Art Deco and into Streamline Moderne which paved the way for the clean lines of midcentury modern. This home is firmly entrenched in the Arts and Crafts style, as many of the homes built in this style were revivals of earlier periods. Here the use of wood beams and timbering harkens back to days of old. But in many ways it is a very modern house especially since its makeover for showcase. The seventeen interior design areas and nine gardens are filled with creative ideas and ingenious new touches. Perhaps one of the most intriguing features of the house, however is the oldest. Even Donna Gotch, the President of PSHA. acknowledged that her favorite element is the Spring House. “The artisian spring which predates the home is the most unique feature,” she said. “Steven Sandalis of Mystic Water Gardens has done a remarkable job of showcasing the Spring House,” noting that he has used the spring itself as a water source for the pond he created. The main house is grand and designed for entertaining, One large rooms opens into another for great traffic flow. The Great Room has a built in bar and opens into an airy Salon with views of the garden on three sides and plenty of seating areas, Cynthia Bennett has

been created a huge space kitchen space out of several smaller rooms. Here the details are a delight. Two different counter treatments, one a leathered limestone, give a wonderful contrast and there are plenty of gadgets to satify everyone. In addition to three sinks, there is a faucet that seems to have list its sink, but is instead a fountain feature that can dispense everything from hot cocoa to club soda. The machine will even make lattes and expresso to order (how many shots and how much cream. As always, it is not just the grandeur of the home and the elegance of its decorations that is impressive, but also the detail. Sometimes those details a=can be overlooked, but should be noted. In this house, look up. In the dining room the ceiling has been wallpapered the designer Michael Berman put in to created the look of coving on a flat surface (trompe l’oeil – fool the eye). In the Great Room, Kathryn Dahlman had the ceiling beams hand painted after being refinished. In Jerome Thiebault’s media room, the chandelier is made of tiny mosaic pieces of mother of pearl. These small details are a delight. But do not forget the floors. In the very first room off the entry, a powder room features an original linoleum floor with a golden star design the team of Whitcomnb and Hughes wisely opted to refurbish rather than remove. In other areas the tile work takes center stage (note

that the tiles – making their debut at Showcase – in the master bath are echoed in the canopy over the bed in that suite – kudos to Designs of the Interior ). Even a back hallway has a great wall design. Jason Lai and Stephanie Leese of L2 Interiors put in a commercial grade cardboard for a 3D wall surface that is amazingly durable. And these just touch the surface of all there is to see at Showcase. In addition to the home, there are also gardens to visit (those will be discussed in next week’s paper). There are nine different garden areas this year and range from a formal terraced slope to a boiswale and from a greenhouse to a pool surround. There is even a lily pond. The house is open Tuesday through Sunday through May 11. The hours are 9 am to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday, and it open Wednesdaythrough Friday until 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available on line at pasadenashowcase.org. There is no parking in the neighborhood of the house, but free shuttle service is provided from the Rose Bowl Parking Lot I. While tickets are required to tour the house, there is no fee to visit the gardens or Marketplace at Showcase. There are also two areas for dining: a restaurant located at the top of the property and a pub with simple fare on the lower level at the south end of the back yard. Free garden tours are given twice a day at 10:30 and 1:30 each day Showcase is open.

Los Angeles photography exhibition brings hundreds to Monrovia’s Paint n Play By Terry Miller

Jazz flash mob at Union Station to celebrate International Jazz Day - April 30 On International Jazz Day April 30, a group of student and professional musicians will unite to perform in a jazz flash mob at Metro's Union Station in Downtown LA. Organized and hosted by the Jazz Education Network (JEN), Make Music Los Angeles, and Los Angeles Unified School District's Beyond the Bell Branch, the flash mob will consist of a spontaneous performance of a popular jazz song for Metro patrons around 5:30 pm. Students and local professional performers will be joined by popular artists such as Ndugu Chancler, Edwin Livingston, and others. "We are engaging the LA community by bringing live jazz to people's daily routines, to show that live music can and should be

accessible to anybody," said LeRoy Downs, President of Make Music LA. International Jazz Day is the culmination of Jazz Appreciation Month, which dedicates the month of April to drawing public attention to jazz and its extraordinary heritage. Events are celebrated across the globe in local communities and schools. "Jazz has such a rich history on the West Coast and we hope this flash mob will draw a larger awareness to what is happening in the world of jazz," said Tony White, Music and Entertainment Education Coordinator at LAUSD. All three hosting organizations share a common mission of increasing awareness of music performance and education. "This event will help

promote performance opportunities for musicians plus develop new audiences for jazz on this internationally-recognized day," said Marina Terteryan, Marketing/Communications Coordinator at JEN. "We are especially excited to be hosting it at the beautiful Union Station." The flash mob will serve as a precursor to Make Music LA's annual Day of Making Music on June 21, 2014, and the Jazz Education Network's annual jazz conference on January 7-11, 2015 in San Diego, California. The performance will be filmed and posted online and all festivities can be followed through the hashtag #jazzmob. Registration is required for all musician participants.

I had the privilege of being invited to show some of my images in a joint photography exhibit last week by my good friend Stephen Coleman. Coleman, who took on this Herculean task, can usually be seen at any number of breaking news events and press conferences carrying a heavy video camera for KABC news in Los Angeles. For this night, however, Coleman opted for the 35mm format of his digital Sony camera to produce some stunning still images along with a host of other local shooters. Curated and heavily promoted by Coleman and orchestrated through Lisa Berrios, owner of Paint n Play, last weekend’s special one-night -only show celebrated Southern California through the eyes of veterans of the news business. From images of celebrities and iconic landmarks, the collective effort of these photographers illustrated Los Angeles County with powerful and poignant passion. Many professional shooters like the iconic Pulitzer Prize winning Nick Ut from AP showed up as well as Gary Friedman from the Los Angeles Times - while not exhibiting - these two terrific shooters lent their considerable support and celebrity to the photographers showing their work as well as encouraging the eager

students who popped in to learn more about the news photography business. MAFA president Bill Beebe and Mayor Mary Ann Lutz were also in attendance as the guests steadily streamed in for the 3 hour show. There was also a surprise visit from Dr. Eric Pollard, the distinguished expert on the prevalence of typos in the newspaper business and in closed captioning on television. Pollard is occasionally sighted at a popular speakeasy named after Arcadia’s founding father near Caltech - so it was a particular honor to have him attend this opening. Mid-way through the event, Lisa Barrios asked all the photographers to get together for a group photo and curator Coleman asked each photographer to say a few words about his/her work and inspiration. Inspired and humbled by the success of the show, Coleman thanked each and every one of the participants and VIP’s verbally and in a post-show email. “I want to thank all the photographers who spent so much energy and effort making last night such a successful evening and to all our guests for coming and celebrating in Old Town Monrovia. I am sorry that I could not spend time with each of our guest and I trust they enjoyed themselves by all the laughing and spirited conversations I saw and heard. For me when I hear people

laughing and smiling I know the event worked well. The photography is the best in town by the best men and women in town. I am so humble to be welcomed among all of you. The young students that came were fantastic and I hope they mixed and talked and I am so happy they were there.” – Stephen Coleman Veteran newsman John North, who retired last year from ABC, was also recognized by Los Angeles City Councilman Tom Labonge during the event. Participating photographers displaying their work included: Patti Ballaz, Rouzanna Berberian, Gary Brainard, Katrina Brown, Ringo Chiu, Stephen Coleman, Bryan Frank, Haywood GoldenEagle Galbreath, Dave Klein, Tom Labonge, Terry Miller, Gary Reyes. The evening’s images ranged in complexity and color as did the overall feel of the show which Coleman has been planning for months. The beauty and artistry of the photographers’ work was second to none. If indeed an image is worth a thousand words, then this gallery exhibit was worth a volume or two of Roget’s Thesaurus. The Locke Brothers provided a great backdrop of live music for the evening. I eagerly await the next event Coleman plans.

Arcadia’s Noriega heads to Tampa to play softball By SHEL SEGAL She might be just 5-foot3, but Stephanie Noriega is definitely a force to reckon with on the softball field. A senior shortstop for the Arcadia High softball team, Noriega has a chance to play softball in college in the Sunshine State with an offer to play at Hillsborough Community College in Tampa. That school then feeds into NCAA Div. I powerhouses Florida State University and the University of Florida. “I haven’t been looking to go out of state,” Noriega said. “I wanted to stay home. That’s what my plan was. But this is a big opportunity.” Noriega said a friend convinced her to try out for softball in elementary school. She hasn’t stopped playing since. “I love it,” she said. “It’s pretty much my life now. I’ve grown up with it year-round. Every day is softball. It keeps me busy. It takes up all my time, but it’s worth it.” She added she also loves playing shortstop. “It’s a very active position,” Noriega said. “There’s a lot of movement and you’re pretty much involved in every play, so it keeps it exciting.”

And she also said she loves trying to steal bases. “I like messing around with the catcher when I’m on base,” Noriega said. “So stealing is a good thing to do. But sometimes messing with the pitcher helps.” Normally batting second, Noriega said she has been asked to bat leadoff this year and is starting to get positive results for the Apaches. “I’ve gotten used to it,” said Noriega, who has recently learned to switch hit. “It’s definitely different than batting second. You’re the start of the game. You don’t get the feeling of getting used to it. I always take the first pitch anyway, so I guess it makes sense for me to be the first batter. Coaches always tell me to hit the first pitch if it’s good. But I know I’m going to take the first pitch. I just want to get used to it and be up there a while.” In addition, as she said she wants to study how to become a teacher, Noriega said she has learned much from first-year coach Richard Klumpp. “He’s kind of just taught me to believe in myself,” she said. “There are techniques that he has taught me that are

different from other coaches. But he definitely has gotten it in my head that I can do it if I just believe in myself. Just to have that mental game is the strongest part of softball. He’s definitely taught me much more in life than in softball.” Klumpp said that Noriega has been a pleasure to coach. “She’s a very exceptional player,” Klumpp said of Noriega. “Very humble, respectful, a great leader. She’s probably the most multi-faceted young lady I’ve ever met. Her leadership is unbelievable.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com. Follow him via Twitter @segallanded.)

election, Thornton said he felt Sierra Madre voters weren’t going to approve the coalition’s proposal. “They thought they could make a $10 million parcel tax work,” Thornton said. “What they found out was … $10 million would cost a minimum of $155 to $165 per parcel over a 30-year time frame. “I think they understood once they projected it and did the math that it just wasn’t viable.” Thornton said the passionists have for years tried to save the land themselves so they wouldn’t have to sell it. “We tried every way you can imagine to come up with the money needed,” he said. “We for seven or so years have been looking at a number of possibilities. We recognize the sacredness of that land.” He added the group even tried a grass-roots effort, but to no avail. “We’ve reached out for 18 to 24 months to Catholic donors and other groups

to raise the money and we couldn’t do it,” he said. “That leads us to where we are today.” Thornton said any developer that is chosen will need to be able to work with the neighbors and residents of Sierra Madre. “What we’re looking for in a development partner is someone who’s sensitive to the needs of the neighbors and someone who is willing to reach out as much as possible,” he said. “We expect the developer to be a good neighbor that fits in.” The reason land needs to be sold is to pay for the medical care of the aging passionists, Thornton said. “We’re taking care of our family,” he said. “The passionists are our family. We’re doing what any other family would do. We’re making sure we have sufficient funds to take care of them.” Matt Bryant of the coalition said he was hoping no land would be developed and the grounds of the center

would remain in the status quo. “We wanted to preserve the open space,” Bryant said. “We tried to create a winwin solution. Unfortunately, we failed. We made them a substantial proposal … We thought it was a good offer. We could have gone up to $15 million, perhaps. But they have gone in the direction of a developer.” Bryant added now the group has to change its gears and monitor the development to make sure it doesn’t encroach on the existing community. “The concern that we have now is you have to maximize what goes on up there, the size of the houses, the number of houses,” he said. “You’re talking about one of the largest housing projects Sierra Madre has seen in decades. We’re very concerned about it.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com. He can be followed via Twitter @ segallanded.)

Tougher penalties for 'Johns' who solicit children approved The Senate Public Safety Committee has taken action to approve legislation that will result in felony prosecution and time in prison for anyone who solicits an act of prostitution from, or engages in an act of prostitution with, a person who is under the age of 18. SB 982, authored by Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (RDiamond Bar), provides an important tool that county prosecutors requested to pursue felony convictions especially for those who solicit minors that are 16 or 17 years of age. The Huff legislation is part of a bipartisan effort to end child sex trafficking in California. The effort involves legislation introduced, co-authored or supported by Sen. Ted Lieu, Sen.

“The average age that a victim is first trafficked for sexual exploitation is 12 to 14 years old, but some victims are as young as age eight,” said Senator Huff. “The only way to save our children from harm is to start putting people in prison for this crime, instead of blaming the young victims. My legislation will toughen penalties against buyers who exploit children for pleasure and profit, drive down demand and save children.” SB 982 will allow the felony prosecution of individuals charged for soliciting a minor for purposes of prostitution, significantly increasing the ability of law enforcement and prosecutors to go after these consumers or “johns” and punish them accordingly. The Huff legislation, specifically, will make it a felony, punishable in a county jail for 16 months or 2 or 3 years, for anyone who solicits an act of prostitution from, or engages in an act of

prostitution with, a person who is under the age of 18. “Sweden passed landmark legislation in 1999 that increased criminal penalties against buying sex,” said Senator Huff during the committee hearing. “It has resulted in a significant decrease in trafficking activity. Sweden now has the lowest number of trafficking victims in the European Union and many other states are now drafting their own version of the Swedish model to combat sex trafficking.” SB 982, which is sponsored by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and has the support of the California Alliance of Child and Family Services; California Contract Cities Association; Crittenton Services for Children and Families; City of Long Beach and the Conference of California Bar Associations, will be heard next month in the Senate Committee on Appropriations.

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.

Dr. Nazee Rofagha, DC will address these issues and more during a FREE workshop on Thursday May 1, 2014 from 6:30pm-7:30pm at the Hastings Branch Public Library on 3325 East Orange Grove Blvd.. Rofagha will enlighten pain sufferers about Neurological Rehabilitation, an emerging new collection of non-invasive techniques designed to strengthen the nervous system. Hailed as miraculous by existing patients, Neurological Rehabilitation is ideal for people suffering from a wide range of mild-to-debilitating pain, injuries and conditions including Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Migraines, Anxiety, Fatigue, Strokes, Spinal Cord Injuries, Neuropathy and more. “Following a 2005 accident that left my back severely injured, numerous doctors determined that medication or surgery, which would leave titanium bolts in my back, were the answer. I

did not want either and was scared I would have to live with pain for the rest of my life... I was skeptical about Neurological Rehabilitation at first but it works. I am now able to walk and run painfree and sleep again. People need to know there are now new options that may work for them besides physical therapy, surgery and medication. “It’s miraculous. Lifechanging!” - Rebecca Gomez, Pasadena Dr. Rofagha’s interest in progressive non-invasive healing techniques was born years ago from her own frustration and desire to help alleviate some of her mother’s life-altering pain. It has since grown into a passion to help as many people as possible. Currently patients throughout the San Gabriel Valley, San Fernando Valley and Greater Los Angeles travel to Rofagha’s Pasadena office for this one-of-a-kindtreatment.

As construction on Temple City’s Rosemead Boulevard approaches completion four months ahead of schedule, the public is invited to celebrate at the Grand Opening (GO) Festival on Saturday, May 10 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The event takes place on the southbound lanes of Rosemead Boulevard between Las Tunas Drive and Broadway. Festivities begin at 9 a.m. with a formal ribboncutting ceremony, followed by a community festival from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Planned activities include a scavenger hunt, public art walking tours, raffle prizes, kid-friendly crafts and games, and interactive exhibits by various transportation agencies and groups including Metro, Metro ExpressLanes, local bicycle shops, Bike SGV, CHP and L.A.S.D. traffic patrol. Metro will also be kicking off Bike Week L.A. with a guided “Old Roots, New Routes” bicycle tour led by Cyclists Inciting Change thru Live Exchange (C.I.C.L.E.) and the Eastside Bike Club. The ride features a pit stop at Temple City Park for participants to enjoy some art and local history, as well as a brief presentation by The Homestead Museum. “The Rosemead Boulevard improvement marks the first major step in transforming our city, and this big celebration is our way of thanking community members for being patient during construction—especially those who were most directly impacted,” said Mayor Carl Blum. “We want to show off the new, modernized boulevard, and encourage people to rediscover the street in a new way—walk on the new sidewalks, bike on the new bike lanes, drive on the new-

I’m sure it will encourage exploration of the city on all modes of transit, and it’s clear the project put the Metro funds to good use.” Residents are encour-

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of GERALDINE J. GILDAY A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by Susan Newton in the Superior Court of California, County of LOS ANGELES. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that Susan Newton be appointed as personal repre-sentative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administra-tion of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representa-tive to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important ac-tions, however, the personal repre-sentative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or con-sented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on May 12, 2014 at 8:30 AM in Dept. No. 11 located at 111 N. Hill St., Los Angeles, CA 90012. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the Califor-nia Probate Code. Other California statutes and

legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowl-edgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property.

by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code.

U.S. EPA’s Pacific Southwest Region solicits environmental award nominations Opportunity to recognize environmental champions

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Pacific Southwest region is encouraging citizens in California, Arizona, Nevada, Hawaii, and the Pacific islands to nominate a friend, peer or organization for this year's Environmental Awards program. This year’s nomination period begins today and closes May 31, 2014. The program seeks to recognize individuals and groups outside of EPA who made significant contributions to improve the environment. Anyone can be

nominated, such as scientists, teachers, journalists, community activists, young people, organizations, business representatives, public officials and others committed to protecting public health and preserving our natural surroundings. EPA expects to notify winners this fall. Awardees will be recognized in events in their local areas or in conjunction with existing events, such as a conference or meeting. Last year’s winners included a nonprofit organization that offers building

supplies for reuse, wetlands scientists who champion vernal pool protection, a solar-powered dairy, a transportation professional who advanced electric school buses, a regional composting facility, and an educational foundation. For more information on the awards, visit: http:// www.epa.gov/region9/ awards/ For more information on submitting a nomination, visit: http://www2. epa.gov/region-9-documents/forms/environmental-awards-how-nominate.

Holden announces major reforms to: CA Massage Parlor Law AB 1147 Massage Therapy Act of 2014 Assemblymember Chris Holden today joined Assemblymembers Susan Bonilla and Jimmy Gomez and the League of California Cities in announcing legislation to help regulate massage businesses and the problem of prostitution and human trafficking that has become big business in cities and communities across the state. “I am pleased to be a joint-author of AB 1147 as we work to professionalize the massage therapy industry and reinforce local control over these businesses,” explained Assemblymember Holden. “For many months,

city officials have been complaining that their hands are tied when it comes to regulating massage businesses – legitimate or otherwise. The Massage Therapy Act removes restrictions on local communities and re-establishes city control over zoning and regulations.” The state set out to improve the massage therapy industry with the creation of the California Massage Therapy Council in 2009. But the law that created the council failed to keep out the bad actors and restricted cities that wanted to keep illicit businesses out of their communities.

City officials complained that while there are many legitimate businesses, others are fronts for prostitution and increasingly, human trafficking. “In my district, the city of South Pasadena recently extended its moratorium prohibiting new massage parlors from setting up shop in that small city after 20 opened up. Officials said the proliferation of these establishments was hurting legitimate businesses and posed a threat to safety in the community because they just don’t have the resources to combat the criminals,” Holden concluded.

Are you ready for summer vacation? Learn how to spend less on gas from Metro and the Automobile Club of Southern California With pump prices once again over $4 a gallon and more than 50 cents a gallon higher than they were in January, Metro and the Automobile Club of Southern California today joined forces to help teach drivers how to spend less on gas. Standing on the platform of the Metro Expo/ Vermont Station with some of the finest museums in the world just steps away, Metro’s Warren Morse urged L.A. residents to minimize their spring break and summer vacation dollars by picking up a $5 Day Pass and making easy-to-reach destinations on the Metro system part of their plans. “Four dollar a gallon gasoline is back and no one is happy about it,” Morse said. “But as gas gets more expensive we do have choices. So we invite everyone to begin spending vacation money on fun, rather than on gas, by exploring Los Angeles and all of its great entertainment on Metro. And for those who do choose to drive, our friends at AAA are here with suggestions for ways to squeeze more milage out of the gas we do buy." Steve Mazor, Chief Automotive Engineer for the Auto Club, explained why it's time for Los Angeles drivers to consider change. "Los Angeles gas prices have jumped in the last 10 years by 82 percent, while the median household income for Californians has gone up by just 16 percent," Mazor said. "But the good news is

“Water conservation needs to be a priority for us, and everyone else in our great state. We are happy to do our part.” The district has taken several other measures to conserve water in recent years and to limit its impact on the environment. Several schools and district buildings have been equipped with low-drip irrigation systems, drought-tolerant plants and landscape, and low-volume sinks and restrooms, district officials said. Most district schools feature advanced energy management systems for their heating and cooling units. Some of the other energyefficient features in buildings

include setback timers on thermostats, low-VOC, or volatile organic compounds, paints, recycled building materials, daylight and occupancy-sensored lighting, and low-energy light sources, district officials said. District officials also said they have made it a priority to significantly reduce the amount of paper it uses. The district has evolved to online documents and agendas, and often holds and encourages completely paperless meetings and workshops. In addition, the district opened a new compressed natural gas station earlier this year after receiving nearly $500,000 in grants. The CNG station will eliminate

an estimated 400 tons of greenhouse gas emissions and save the district up to $40,000 in fuel and maintenance costs per year, district officials have said. “It’s been great to see our students, teachers, and staff be environmental leaders on our campuses and in our community,” Shawn said. “Their conservation and sustainability ideas and efforts have been remarkable. We have made great strides in our efforts and will continue to examine what AUSD can do to continue these important efforts.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com.
