Holden honors Sierra Madre holocaust survivor Helen Rotenberg Lewin

The Fab Four's Roots are in Temple City

BY SHEL SEGAL It’s been a long time in coming, but for the first time since the first Bush administration there will be a new Los Angeles County supervisor from the First District. Term limits are forcing longtime Supervisor Gloria Molina to say goodbye to the post that covers a large portion of the San Gabriel Valley and East Los Angeles County. Vying for the seat is one very-known name and two others trying to win the ticket to the Board of Supervisors, according to a published report.

The Fab Four have played around the world as John Paul George and Ringo as this mock-up of the Let It Be album depicts. -Photos by Terry Miller

BY SHEL SEGAL They might have been inspired from the Lads from Liverpool, but the Fab Four can actually trace its roots to the musical hotbed of Temple City. Founded by 1989 Temple City High School graduate Ardy Sarraf, the group started from modest beginnings before growing. “We got started about 1996 in L.A. at a Beatle convention called ‘Beatle Fest,’” Sarraf said. “My group

from Temple City High School that included Mike McCarthy and Steve Welch, we just there just to play some Beatles’ songs in a battle of the bands. We didn’t dress up like the Beatles. We didn’t talk like them. We just played some songs. And we won.” Sarraf said the band just kept getting better and better. “We won four years in a row and that got the attention of some professional Beatle tribute guys,” he said. From there Sarraf said he got to travel to many

different countries and places as a Beatle, like Japan, Korea, Canada and even getting to play for U.S. military installations in Guam. As he is Paul McCartney on stage – but a natural righthander – Sarraf said he had to take the time to re-teach himself how to play lefthanded guitar and bass as to be more authentic in the band’s shows. “I taught myself how to play left-handed guitar,” Sarraf said. “I bought a lefthanded Hofner bass and

spent six or seven months just trying to get the chords down, the rhythm of that down and how to hold it.” While Sarraf said he started his musical career at church, it was a historical event that changed his life forever in many ways. “As a kid I grew up in choir and churches and stuff,” Sarraf said. “But when John Lennon was killed in 1980 I remember my sister had a scrap book with all Please see page 31

Dorothy's Place On a roll

By Dorothy Denne I never win much. I suspect part of the reason is that I don't gamble much. I don't buy lottery tickets, and I don't buy chances or raffle tickets or whatever you want to call them. I don't even enter those big publishers' sweepstakes. Imagine what I may have missed! Lately though, through no planning on my part, I've been on a roll. You might call it a lucky streak, but I'm not too sure. See, the first thing I won was a door prize at an event I attended. It was for a free

manicure. When I went to collect on it, I not only had a new experience visiting a fancy, non-native-English-speaking nail salon, but I made the mistake of saying "short" and nearly lost my fingers in the process. A few days later, at a luncheon, I won a beautiful centerpiece of fresh flowers. I put it on my dining room table where, when I wasn't looking, one of my feline buddies pulled some of the greenery out and slopped water on one of my bills that was ready for mailing. It was rather appropriately the water bill. I'm sure the City of Arcadia won't mind, as long as the ink on the check didn't run. Then at another event my name was pulled in a drawing. I won a really neat

over-the-shoulder tote bag. I like it. It is just the right size to carry a paperback book, a couple of pens and a notepad when I go for my morning coffee. I will have to be careful climbing out of the car though. The first morning I used it, I caught the strap on my steering wheel and nearly jerked my shoulder out of joint. See why I say I may be on a roll, but I'm not sure it is a lucky streak? Most recently I won a certificate for a free haircut. I think I'll use it soon 'cause my hair is ready for a cutting. However, as I harken back to the fingernail incident, if it is a non-native-English-speaking establishment you can be damn sure I'm not going to say "short."

SGV COG supports NRA Legislation On a 17 to 6 vote, the SGV COG members voted in favor of a resolution to support Congresswoman Chu’s National Recreation Area resolution with a finding “the legislation was generally consistent with the principles and issues identified in the [COG’s} NRA White Paper”. Margaret Clark, Mayor Pro Tem Rosemead, reasoned the COG subcommittee appointed to evaluate the NRA legislation and make a recommendation to the full Board had not had a chance to discuss the other two pieces, Wilderness and Wild & Scenic. She felt it was imperative not to support the NRA until the other two pieces had been evaluated and a recommendation on those could be presented to the Board. In the largest public turn-out to comment on issues before the Board, 12 community members spoke urging the Board not to take action until more study

had been done, including Clark’s recommendation of a subcommittee review of the Wilderness and Wild & Scenic pieces. Freddie Bowden, Monrovia resident, told the Board Monrovia had passed a $30 million bond to ensure open space in the Monrovia hillsides and still had that financial obligation. He questioned how that would be handled if the land were turned over to the federal government as part of the NRA. Bowden also said he had donated property to the City’s open space area and he didn’t want that property going into the NRA. Cliff Hamlow, Glendora Planning Commissioner, pointed out the COG resolution in support of NRA failed to include 6 provisions that were part of the COG White Paper principles not included in Chu’s legislation. • Provide detailed boundaries

dit

• Provide water au-

• Ensure property absorbed by NRA contains unique cultural, historical, recreational or biological resources • Ensure adequate local input in appointments to Advisory Council • Management Plan created by Advisory Council include ratification by the Partnership • Provide clarification of terms, compensation and other details of the Partnership On motion by Gene Murabito, Glendora, those principles were added to the resolution. Those voting against the resolution supporting NRA were Covina, Diamond Bar, La Canada Flintridge, La Verne, Pomona, and Rosemead. President Barbarba Messina, Alhambra, left to attend another meeting leaving Mary Ann Lutz, Mayor, Monrovia, chairing the meeting. Lois M. Shade

Did Sierra Madre need to increase the water rates? The Consultant that Sierra Madre City Council hired based the need for the water rate increase upon two basic items - the City had long-term debt which was back charged to the Water Department, comprising three debts, which have annual payment of $945,000. The other item was the need to purchase water from the MWD. In the first place, the long-terns debt has the City as the owner of the debt and is also being shown that way by placing these items as the problem of the Administration Department not the Water Department. The 1998 long-term debt is paid from property taxes in the former CRA zone and now the State gives the payment monies to the City, which in turn is given to the CRA Successor Agency. The Agency received $1M from the City months ago. This amount is much greater than the interest only payment of the

loan and the question rises as to what happens with the rest of the monies? The present payment schedule calls for interest only payments until 2020 and after that they start to pay on the principal until 2034. The other debt of $1.5M owed to the San Gabriel Water District had a ten-year no-payment period and the City has to pay $145,000 per year, the curious thing on this debt is why hasn't the City made a formal request to have this debt forgiven? The possibility was mentioned a year ago by the Public Works Director and if the City did make the request the forgiven possibility is very good since the Water District receives a portion of their income from Sierra Madre property taxes. The bottom line is that the long-term debt should never have been figured as an item chargeable to the Water Department. The other item is the purchase of additional water which the assumption

is made that the City will have to do so for a number of years. This item is added to the 3rd and 4th rate charges. It has been stated that this water costs $260.00 per acre foot. If this is true, then why hasn't the City paid $1.00 after six months of using MWD water? The answer is simple - we are using accumulated acre feet of credits that we have with the S.G.W.D. Also, where are the credits for not using the pumps which have been back-charged to the Water Department at the rate of $42,000/per month? All in all, there was no legitimate reason for the enormous water rate increases and if the City wanted to be honest with the people, they should go back to the previous rate charges. What will they do, besides nothing, which is exactly what they are doing to repair the overdue maintenance of our water system. Sierra Madre Watchman

Letters to the Editor (Continued) Lifeline For Pets Dear Editor, In regards to the Lifeline For Pets article of April 10 ("It Takes Two"), I was a one cat (female) mother for 25 years. When my second kitty died three years ago, I was heartbroken and wanted to adopt another female as quickly as possible to dull the pain of loss. I visited a foster home and met a litter of four: three boys and a girl. I sat

on the floor and waited to see what would happen. Immediately, a cute little black and white fur ball introduced himself to me. Although the wrong gender, this little guy stole my heart. He was too young to adopt so I visited the foster home several more times waiting for him to be ready to come home with me. He and I agreed that his name was Gabri-

el (after the San Gabriel Mountains). During my visits, Gabriel’s brother, a cute little solid black kitty, began to seduce me. He rolled over on his back and looked at me so longingly…..but, I was determined: only one cat for me. The day before I was to take Gabriel home, I talked with friends who had more than one cat and urged me to

adopt both boys. I thought about it and struggled between my love for both boys and my prejudice in favor on a single cat family. In the end, I took both Gabriel and Antonio (named after Mount San Antonio) home. They are now three years old and I have never regretted my decision for a minute. Laura Joseph

Pasadena junior catcher Sergio Rey, hard work and dedication By Shel Segal Junior catcher Sergio Rey is having a breakout season this year for the Pasadena High baseball team. He is batting .404 with two doubles and 10 RBIs. But for Rey, none of this has happened over night. It has been the product of several years of hard work and dedication. “I transferred over as a new student during freshman year,” Rey said. “I didn’t really know anybody, came in here with no friends. But

thanks to baseball I came in and I made lots of friends.” The biggest stumbling block early on for Rey was in the classroom as he said he had trouble as a freshman getting accustomed to high school academic life. “My freshman year I started out kind of rough, but now I’m getting more into it,” he said. “I’m getting more into the growing up phase of it. It sort of hit me more sophomore year. I did summer school and (Pasadena baseball coach Mike) Parisi talked to me. He got me to realize how important grades are. He said the talent is there, but the grades will make you go further.” Rey said Parisi gave him the encouragement to do better in school and on the diamond. “He’s taught me a lot, like hard work pays off,” Rey said of Parisi. “Freshman year I wasn’t the best, but I can see it’s starting to develop now.” And Rey had to work himself into a regular baseball position as that wasn’t in

the plans at first. “I wasn’t the catcher at first, but I worked my way into being the catcher my freshman year,” he said. “Since then I’ve been the regular catcher. All that hard work paid off. I just got to keep it up and give my best effort.” And there is one aspect of catching Rey said he particularly loves. “Throwing guys out is probably the best thing there is,” he said. “Guys start testing you and you throw them out. It’s nice.” He added you have to have a certain mentality to play behind the plate. “As catcher you’re involved in every play,” he said. “It’s intense. You got to be positive all the time, no matter if it’s going negative or not. You got to have a positive attitude about everything.” And Rey said he enjoys working with the Bulldog pitchers. “I’m pretty good at handling them,” he said. “And you got to have a

pretty good bond with your pitchers. They got to have the confidence and they got to trust you. For the most part they trust me pretty well.” Parisi said Rey is just a joy to have on the team. “Sergio Rey is our true leader,” Parisi said. “He is a special player to coach. He is the most respectful hard working and considerate player I have ever coached. Someone I would let my daughter date.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

Here are some locations to take your fitness outside and on to the local hiking trails: • Arcadia: Arcadia Wilderness Park; enjoy a picnic and a short hike with the whole family. • Sierra Madre: Mount Wilson Trail or Bailey Canyon Park; both of these trails are challenging and best for intermediate to advanced hikers. Choose Mount Wilson Trail for the early morning or evening while it’s still cool and choose Bailey Canyon for late morning or afternoon. • Monrovia: Monrovia Canyon Park; even the littlest members of your family will enjoy this hike under a canopy of trees, rewarded by a waterfall at the turnaround. • Pasadena: Eaton Canyon; be sure to visit the

nature center, and when you hike keep an eye out for many birds that call this place home. Henninger flats; Take this hike if you are looking for a steeper more challenging trail which ends at a camp ground complete with BBQs and restroom facilities. A few things to keep in mind while hiking in our mountains: BE SAFE and do not hike alone. Be aware of your surroundings, wear appropriate footwear (not sandals or flip flops) and dress for the weather. Layered clothing often works best. Spring mornings can be cool but the afternoons get pretty warm and you might need to peel off a layer to stay comfortable Here’s a short list of essentials to bring on your hike: plenty of water, snacks, sunglasses, hat, sunscreen, bug spray, a small first aid kit.

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

Personal Brand: Leading Authentically What is a personal brand? And how does it relate to leadership? Personal brand is often associated with external things like a flashy logo, snappy attire, a person’s car, one’s financial status or their collection of tech gadgets. But brand is much more than the façade of personal image. It’s genuine and gets to the heart of the individual. The book, “Be Your Own Brand” by David McNally and Karl Speak describe personal brand as: values oriented, distinctive, relevant, consistent and authentic. Values: Values are the heart of your brand because they represent your principles that guide your actions, behaviors and decisions. They’re the driving force for how you lead. Being clear about your values and leading in accordance with them makes you a content, confident and authentic leader. Let’s take this a step further. It’s when your employees notice (even subconsciously) your commitment to your values that your brand as a leader starts to take shape. This is when employees begin to recognize the real you.

When they see and understand the real you is when your brand starts to gain traction. Distinctive: Being distinctive means you stand for something. It’s how you separate out from the crowd, but not just by simply being different, rather by leading and serving others in a distinctive way. What’s a quality, characteristic or trait that you want to be known for? That makes you unique in how you lead others? Perhaps pick a value and find new ways to lead based upon it. Relevant: Being relevant is about understanding and caring about what’s important to someone else - - your employees. Put yourself in their shoes to understand what they need, value and desire. Being relevant starts with taking your distinctive qualities and using them in a meaningful way that makes a difference for your team. Consistency: Repetition. Repetition. Repetition. Consistently demonstrating your distinctive qualities in relevant ways over and over again is fundamental to having a brand that is understood

and recognizable. The more consistent you are the stronger your brand grows. Authenticity: Authenticity means being genuine and true, which is the foundation of leadership and of any strong brand. It’s showing the real you to the world and those you lead. Authenticity makes us feel good, confident and sure of ourselves. It also creates trust, vulnerability, respect, esteem and camaraderie with others. Consistently being authentic takes practice and fortitude. The payoff, though, is tremendous for both you and your team. Personal brand is about the real you - - your true leadership. It’s not about presenting a manufactured image, rather it’s about bringing out the best in you. Ask yourself how you can strengthen your leadership and brand through being: values oriented, distinctive, relevant, consistent and authentic.

William Shakespeare celebrates 450 years at Noise Within It is a long way from Stafford-upon Avon in Warwickshire but Pasadena could be considered The Bard’s second home – especially at A Noise Within where Chuck Brogdon, a former Glendale teacher, played the 14th century wordsmith with the finesse of the Royal Shakespeare Company . Widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world’s pre-eminent dramatist, William Shakespeare is often called England’s national poet and the “Bard of Avon.” The popular theatre celebrated the Bard’s 450th birthday Thursday in Pasa-

dena. Sword fight demonstrations and leaving an insult on their Shakespearean Insults as well as trying on period costumes were some of the

highlights. If you didn’t attend, Shakespeare offers this – one of his famous insults: “Out of my sight! Thou dost infect my eyes.”

County Supervisor Continued from page 1

With the election taking place on June 3, Hilda Solis, a former member of Congress and Labor Secretary in the Obama administration, is considered by many to easily be the front runner. As she has name recognition and reportedly more than $625,000 at her disposal she might be difficult to beat, according to that report. However, El Monte Council Member Juventino “J” Gomez and law enforcement officer April Saucedo Hood are trying very hard to get votes on election day. In addition to serving the city of El Monte for 10 years, Gomez has worked for Los Angeles County for almost 40 years, in the human resources area and also has a senior staff member for Supervisor Mike Antonovich, according to that report.

Hood said she grew up in Bell Gardens and now lives in Pico Rivera. She is the parent of two children – one is 1 and one is 14 – and works as a patrol officer in Long Beach Unified School District, according to that report. And Solis, for her part, is more than likely able to bring federal money to Los Angeles County because of her past work, according to that report. With vote-by-mail ballots being sent out on May 5, all three candidates are doing what they can now to reach out to voters, according to that report. Solis has said that one of the things she would like to do as supervisor is reform the Department of Children and Family Services, according to that report. While Solis has said the department needs to hire more case workers

to reduce the existing caseload, Gomez has said the county should “also look to reforms among the department’s supervisors,” according to that report. And Hood said the department needs to improve “training for social workers,” according to that report. The one area Gomez and Hood have said they would like to concentrate on is public safety. Hood has said the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is not currently well run and that deputies often do not treat people well, according to that report. Gomez is “calling for an annual or biannual audit of the Sheriff’s Department,” according to that report. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com.

If robots are truly the wave of the future, then a group of students at Monrovia High School are defi-

nitely at the forefront of it all. Having competed in a recent national robotics competition in St. Louis, students from the school’s robotics club came away with a great deal of robotics knowledge, said Thomas Dobson, science teacher and advisor to the club. Dobson added members of the club eat, drink and sleep robotics all year round with competitions happening often during the year. “Normally, the season starts in September,” he said. “We have a built season that goes into the middle of November. There are qualifying tournaments that we go to. They try to qualify for the various regional qualifying championships. All four of our teams qualified for the L.A. regional championships. Two of them ended up going to the Las Vegas regional championship and one of them went to the L.A., San Diego and Las Vegas regional championships.” First, Dobson said, the students come up with a video game. Then they have to turn it into something concrete, like physically moving blocks from

one spot on the floor to another specific place and put them into something while making sure the robot stays balanced. “The game itself is based on scoring,” Dobson said. “There’s putting a block on the outside here is worth three points. One on the inside is worth two points and putting one on the floor is worth one point. Having the pendulum balance is worth a 50 percent bonus. Raising the flag at the end of the game gives them more points. Hooking the robot onto the bar there and raising it off the ground is worth more points.” They put in several hours a week from September through the school year with meetings twice a week, Dobson said. He added the students probably spend more time here than studying for all of their other classes combined. “Some of these kids are robot junkies for life,” Dobson said. “It’s robots all the time. That’s what they think about. That’s what they do.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com. He can be followed via Twitter @ segallanded.)

Fellow deputies and officers from surrounding law enforcement agencies stood guard at Deputy David March's memorial for a 24 hour vigil on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 from midnight until 11:59 pm to honor the sacrifice he made for the communities he loved and served. Deputy David March was shot and killed after stopping a vehicle in Irwindale, California, on April 29, 2002 at approximately 10:40 am. The

BEACON MEDIA | DRAGON TIMES | HLR MEDIA

suspect had stated to friends that he wanted to kill a police officer during a traffic stop. The suspect intentionally got stopped and waited for Deputy March to get in front of his patrol car so he could open fire, as Deputy March would have no place to take cover. Deputy March was shot several times in the head and chest. The suspect, who was identified shortly after the shooting, fled to Mexico where he remained for 4 years. On February

23, 2006, the suspect was arrested in Mexico by US Marshals and Mexican federal agents following a joint investigation. He was extradited back to California and on March 2nd, 2007, he pleaded guilty to seconddegree murder and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Deputy March had served with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for 7 years. He is survived by his wife and daughter.

Pasadena Pops season begins June 7 By Shel segal Starting another season at the Los Angeles County Arboretum on June 7 is the Pasadena Pops. And this year it will be conducted by the ever-sofamous Michael Feinstein, said marketing director Lora Unger. “Michael Feinstein opens the concert (on June 7) with ‘Feinstein’s Favorites,’ which is a grab bag of a few of his favorite things,” Unger said. “Michael’s programming is just so special because he brings rarely heard and unique archival music, from the garages of Peggy Lee’s granddaughter to the Smithsonian to MGM’s vaults. Michael has just a very special gift. He brings the great American songbook.” Unger said Feinstein puts his personal touch on all the pieces. “The way he presents them and the way the orchestra performs them they sound very relevant,” she said. “You’d think you knew them all along.” Unger added the outdoor experience by having the concerts at the Arboretum is just

remarkable. “The Arboretum is what we’d like to call the best outdoor dinner party in town,” she said. “Audience members are invited to bring their own picnics. We also have food trucks, as well. Audience members, they enjoy seating around fine linen tables. You’re not in a box. You’re not in a concert hall. You can sit on the lawn, but people really get into the picnicking and the dining.” Tena Clark’s Leading Ladies of Song is a highlight of the series on June 28, Unger said, as the show that night will feature a famous guest. “Tena’s bringing Dionne Warwick and other singers to perform a lot of her music,” Unger said. Other shows throughout the summer include “Michael Feinstein Sings Gershwin” on July 19, “Hurray For Hollywood,” with Maureen McGovern on Aug. 16 and “New York! New York!” with Jeremy Jordan and Patti Austin on Sept. 6. “What makes our concerts unique is the artistic

12.3-mile Azusa to Montclair light rail project on track

Continued from page 1

of work for the Azusa to Montclair project. The contract will allow AECOM to support the Foothill Gold Line develop the advanced conceptual engineering for the project, as well as any necessary environmental reviews. “We had four well qualified teams provide proposals for this work, and AECOM received the highest score based on their experience, staffing plan and understanding of the project,” commented Construction Authority board chairman

and Glendora city councilman Doug Tessitor. “AECOM was the design team responsible for the Gold Line Bridge, and we look forward to working with them again on this important next phase of work for the Azusa to Montclair project.” The project includes six new light rail stations with parking facilities, several dozen at-grade street crossings, two new grade separated crossings, nearly a dozen traction power substations, and all other necessary facilities to support

the light rail extension within a shared corridor throughout with heavy rail. Residual Measure R funding for the Foothill Gold Line is being used for this design effort; although no construction funding has yet been secured. The agency anticipates the cost to build the extension to Montclair will be just under $1 billion. “While we continue to seek out construction funding for the project, we must continue to move this project forward,” continued Tessitor. “The construction now

underway from Pasadena to Azusa continues on budget and on schedule, and the time is right to ready the next phase of the Foothill Gold Line for future construction.” The 12.3-mile Azusa to Montclair project will extend light rail service from the APU/Citrus College Station in the city of Azusa (currently under construction) to the future stations in Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair. The project was environmentally cleared under CEQA in March 2013,

when a Locally Preferred Alternative was selected. Over the next two years, this contract will advance the design and engineering for the project to a point where it will be ready for a designbuild procurement. “We are excited to once again support the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction

Authority in fulfilling its mandate and provide the services needed to bring light rail transit service back to the vibrant and cherished communities of Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair, ” stated James de la Loza, Senior Vice President of Transportation for AECOM.

13 PETA protestors plead ‘No Contest’ Thirteen of the protesters arrested for disrupting the SeaWorld float on January 1 have pleaded "no contest" and have been given fines, with six months to pay. "We PETA protesters can move on with our lives—but orcas can't because they're stuck suffering in SeaWorld's tiny tanks with nothing to see, nowhere to go, and no real lives," says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange, one of the protesters who was arrested. "We're asking kind people everywhere to call on SeaWorld to release these orcas to seaside sanctuaries, where they can begin to be reunited with their families in the ocean." The case of Amanda Slyter, the only protester to plead not guilty and who is asserting the defense of necessity—i.e., violating

Arcadia’s 16th annual Law Day slated May 10 The City of Arcadia and the Arcadia Chinese Association will offer a free Ask-a-awyer Program at the Arcadia Public Library, 20 West Duarte Road, on Saturday, May 10 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. as part of the nationwide Law Day celebration. Volunteer attorneys are available to meet with the public and provide them with a free brief one-onone consultation on general legal questions. They will provide a summary of legal rights and general advice on a “walk-up” basis, and where appropriate, will refer individuals to the proper legal or governmental organizations. Law Day attorneys are unable to accept any cases from the people they meet. Law Day attorneys will answer questions on immigration, consumer rights, landlord-tenant issues, insurance problems, property, family law, bankruptcy, government benefits, employee rights, workers’ compensation, personal injury and other topics. Informational brochures and pamphlets are available as additional legal resources. Financial questions often arise in correlation with legal issues. Financial

advisors are available at Law Day to offer expert advice in the areas of taxes, real estate, investment, financial planning, etc. “Arcadia is proud to offer Law Day to the community for the sixteenth year because we see the positive impact it has on people’s lives each year. As a city, we strive to bring the best services to our residents and Law Day is a perfect example of meeting the needs of our diverse community. When there is a legal issue, many people are not sure what their first step should be to get the help they need. This is where Law Day really shines. We are able to offer free professional assistance to set them on the right track to resolving their legal issues,” said Mayor Pro Tem Gary Kovacic who is an attorney and the event's chairperson since its inception. Participants are encouraged to bring any information pertinent to their case so the attorney or financial expert is able to give the most accurate and reliable advice. No reservations are required for this free service and everyone is welcome to attend.

“We are excited to co‐host Law Day again this year. It is one of the highlights of the Arcadia Chinese Associations’ calendar because it is an event where we can truly see the difference we can make in the lives of others. This is our sixteenth year of co-sponsoring this event and we can’t imagine a better use of our volunteer time and effort,” said Joanna Liang, President of the Arcadia Chinese Association. Volunteers from the Arcadia Chinese Association will provide event-day coordination and language translations where needed at this year’s Law Day event. "Many thanks to our co-sponsor the Arcadia Chinese Association, and all their volunteers, for their commitment to the event. They help make sure the day goes as smoothly as it can, which further demonstrates their wholehearted dedication to our community," said Kovacic. Translation services will be available in Mandarin and Cantonese. Other languages may be available. For more information, please call Arcadia City Hall at 5745460.

Smart Women Smart Money

By Emmy Hernandez Certified Financial Planner® Practitioner Attorney at Law Retirement can be a significant line of demarcation for a family’s financial planning. During employment, many people contribute money to various types of retirement savings accounts. Upon retirement, this accumulation phase will most likely end. The distribution phase now begins. A majority of households will draw from a finite pot of money for almost all their future needs. The income plan that’s implemented can make or break those golden years ahead. Retirees, hopefully, have several sources of money to draw their income from: employer pensions, personal retirement accounts and social security benefits. Deciding how to take your pension, what retirement accounts to withdraw from first and

when to begin Social Security requires careful planning and will have lifetime consequences. When reviewing an employer sponsored pension, one important question to ask may be: Does this employer pension have any survivorship options? If not, a lump sum payout may be preferable to monthly installments that won’t continue to support surviving dependents once you’ve passed on. After retirement, do you foresee a point when your tax bracket will be significantly lower? The answer to this question should be factored in before scheduling distributions from a 401(k) or a traditional IRA. If your tax bracket will indeed drop markedly, then holding onto funds in a tax deferred savings account a little longer may be better than cashing out sooner and experiencing a higher tax rate. But what if your tax bracket will remain about the same - perhaps because a high earning spouse will continue to work? In some situations, a retiree’s tax bracket may actually rise if their pension is especially good or if sizable tax deductions are lost. In such cases, there may be benefits in converting a portion of your Traditional IRA into a Roth IRA before your tax bracket increases. Waiting until full retirement age, 67 years old

for most readers, will offer larger monthly Social Security benefits. Postponing these government benefits until 70 can offer an even greater return. The primary caveats that must be factored in are health and life expectancy. As a general rule, other income streams should be accessed first to help delay the start of Social Security’s payout. Thoughtful planning can maximize household income and offer significant long term tax savings. Every family experiences a different set of variables during retirement and each case must be examined individually. For folks who are interested in learning more about income distribution strategies, may I invite you to the Golden Futures Expo on Saturday May 10th. I will address this topic in greater detail as a guest speaker at 11 am. The Golden Futures Expo is California’s annual Baby Boomer lifestyle event held in the Horizon Club at the Pasadena Rose Bowl from 10 am to 3 pm.

Hiker rescued via helicopter from Idlehour Campground early Monday Daniel Marine of El Segundo, went to the Cobb Estates area of Angeles National Forest Sunday evening, April 27, 2014, to go for a hike. At approximately 8:45pm, Altadena Sheriff Station received a 911 call from the hiker who stated he had parked his car at Loma Alta Dr. Altadena, at approximately 3:00pm and hiked north into the Angeles National Forest. The hiker had few supplies with him and no flashlight. Shortly after the hiker called the Altadena Sheriff station, his cell phone battery had died. The Altadena Mountain Search and Rescue Team, Los Angeles County Fire Department, and Sierra Madre Search and Rescue teams were activated and responded to the area

to look for a missing hiker. Altadena Mountain Search and Rescue Team along with Los Angeles County Fire Department helicopter searched the mountains north of where the hiker parked his vehicle. After approximately an hour of searching, Montrose and Sierra Madre Search and Rescue teams joined the search, with a total of 24 persons on the ground searching for the hiker. Throughout the evening the winds picked up and were too high for the helicopter to continue the search. At approximately 4:10am on Monday, April 28, 2014 the hiker was located just north of Idlehour Campground in Eaton Canyon and air lifted to Farnsworth Park, Altadena.

The hiker was not injured. Rescuers were able to contact the hikers cell phone provider and confirm his approximate location. Search and Rescue Team members are Reserve Sheriff’s deputies who volunteer their time to help others for $1 a year, and who partner with sheriff’s civilian volunteers who volunteer for free. There are over 150 members of the eight Search and Rescue teams of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. These rescuers were activated for over 450 search and rescue missions last year, making it one of the most active counties for search and rescue missions in the nation. Reserve deputies and civilian volunteers are supervised by full-time Sheriff’s Deputies.

Azusa Unified names Sheryce Long as 2014 Teacher of the Year

$69. 9

“I just love teaching literature. It’s all about life and the human condition and I enjoy watching kids making connections with good books,” says Gladstone High School English Teacher Sheryce Long. Ms. Long was named the Azusa Unified School District’s 2014 Teacher of the Year and will be recognized by the Board of Education on May 6. Prior to joining the District, Ms. Long taught in the Palm Springs School District and at an international school in Japan. She received both her bachelors and masters degrees from Biola University. Having grown up in Japan, she says the schools there are very demanding and challenging. “It was my eighth grade teacher who set extremely high standards and intellectually challenged me that made me want to me a teacher,” she explained. Ms. Long added that the Japanese place a high value on education and students are very competitive to excel in school. She said one of the greatest challenges for teachers here is inspiring students to go beyond the minimum requirements and to engage them to excel. “If we are to be competitive in the global economy, our students need to

develop critical thinking skills. I think Common Core is helping us to make progress in this area,” she added. This year’s Azusa Unified Teacher of the Year nominees include Gabe Miranda at Dalton School, Suzanne Pickering at Ellington School, Debbie Hill at Gladstone Street School, Carolyn Rivera at Hodge School, Yasmin Corrales at Lee School, Martha Faust at Magnolia School, Alicia Hernandez at Mountain View School,

Arcadia High School receives prestigious gold medal ranking U.S. News and World Report has named Arcadia High School as one of its gold medal schools in its “2014 Best High Schools” national rankings. Less than three percent of the more than 19,000 schools that were evaluated earned a gold medal. This is the third consecutive year that Arcadia High School has been recognized with the top honor. “This recognition is just another proud reflection of the quality of our students, teachers, staff, parents, and community,” said Dr. Brent Forsee, Principal of Arcadia High School. “It’s also a reflection of our entire district, and all our teachers and staff throughout it. They are sending us well-prepared and engaged students as soon as they walk through our doors.” According to U.S. News and World Report, “The data show that receiv-

ing a gold medal is truly a rarity among the public high schools that U.S. News evaluated for this ranking.” The rankings are based on how well schools prepare students for college, and on their students’ performance on state assessments. Arcadia High School is ranked 432nd in the country, and 89th among public high schools in California. Among the top 100 high schools in California, Arcadia is one of just three with more than 3,000 students. In addition to offering a wide variety of Honors and Advancement Placement (AP) courses, Arcadia High School has a unique offering of academic teams and clubs. These highly successful clubs include the Academic Decathlon, History Bowl, Math Team, Ocean Science Bowl, Quiz Bowl, Physics Team, Science Bowl, Science Olympiad, Constitution Team,

Robotics Team, Speech and Debate, and Destination Imagination. This year 22 students were recognized as National Merit Scholarship finalists. One of those finalists, senior Nathan Chou, also earned a rare perfect score on his AP Calculus BC exam. He was one of just 11 students in the world to achieve perfection. Another student, Kevin Chou, earned the highest possible score on the ACT Exam. Both astonishing results were achieved by less than one-tenth of one percent of students who took those particular exams. Arcadia High School is also home to award-winning and nationally recognized performing arts and athletics programs. For more information on Arcadia High School please visit www.ahs. ausd.net, and for more information on the U.S. News and World Report High School Rankings you can visit www.usnews.com.

Kurt Norwood named new fire chief for Arcadia Arcadia City Manager Dominic Lazzaretto has appointed Kurt Norwood to the position of Arcadia Fire Chief, effective May 1, 2014. Mr. Norwood is currently the Acting Fire Chief for the City of Arcadia. Accepting the appointment, Mr. Norwood said: “I am truly grateful for the opportunity provided me by the City Council and City Manager to serve the residents of Arcadia in the capacity of Fire Chief. I am appreciative of their support and confidence in my ability to maintain the high standards of performance and professionalism that the men and women of the Arcadia Fire Department exemplify. I am honored to lead these same men and women and serve this great community.” Hired by the Arcadia Fire Department in 1987 as a Fire Crewman, later that year Kurt went on to become a Firefighter. In 1998 he was promoted to Captain and in 2004 to Battalion Chief, where he assumed duties as Fire Marshal and Emergency Medical Services Fire Chief. In 2011, Kurt was promoted

to Deputy Fire Chief. Kurt’s education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Fire Protection Administration and a Masters Degree in Public Administration from California State University, Los Angeles. Kurt is an Adjunct Instructor for Rio Hondo Community College in the Fire Technology Division, covering such topics as Command, Prevention, Management and Emergency Medical Services. “Kurt’s experience with

the Arcadia Fire Department, especially his recent tenure as Deputy and Acting Chief, position him perfectly to move into the Department’s lead post,” said City Manager Lazzaretto. “Kurt has had the opportunity to manage all aspects of the Fire Department and has proven himself to be an effective leader and strong member of the City’s Executive Team.” Chief Norwood succeeds Chief Tony Trabbie who retired April 30.

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.

The Gardens at Showcase House By Susan Motander

-Courtesy Photo

One lovely secret of the Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts is that visiting the gardens is absolutely free. Park at the Rose Bowl Lot I parking (for free), take the shuttle bus (for free) and wander through the gardens (for free). Of course, the organization will not mind at all if you stop for a little lunch in the restaurant or at the grab ‘n

go pub, or if you do a little shopping in the Showcase Shops (remember 25% of what you spend is a tax deductable donation- so save those receipts). And what lovely gardens they are this year. The gardens at this, the 50th Showcase House in the group’s 65-year history are especially delightful for an easy stroll. They range

from a formal, balanced entry garden by Gary Fishbeck in front of the house, to a multi-level terraced garden in the rear (Karen Miller) to a quiet spring house with a stream and pond (designed by Steve Sandalis of Mystic Water Gardens).

home). If outdoor living is your preference, Jan Ledgard of Yorkshire Kitchens has added an outdoor kitchen (complete with a television set) outfitted with Al Fresco appliances. She has even added a vegetable garden in addition to tucking a few veggies in among the annuals in the flower garden. For those who prefer simple meditation and a calming spot there is a lily pond with goldfish (no these are not young koi) and red minnows. The designer here, Jon Rasmussen, has two creative solutions to backyard pond problems: the pond’s filter is in the large fountain pot in the center of the pond and there is a motion sensing water spray to deter those pesky raccoons (don’ t worry it is turned off during the hours showcase is open so you won’t be soaked). For the orchid lovers in this world there are two houses – a glass enclosed greenhouse and a breezy lath house). Delores Kroop even solved the problems of ugly florescent lights. She had created balsa wood and handmade paper shades that enclose the fixtures. For those concerned about the sustainability of the garden, FormLA’s Kirk and Cassie Aoyagi have put a bioswale to deal with water runoff. As always their garden features drought tolerant and native plants. And there is almost always someone on hand in their garden to answer questions. Speaking of asking questions, there are docent lead tours of the gardens every day Showcase House is

open. These tours are given at 10:30 and 1:30 each day, and yes, they are also free. Think of what a charming Mother’s Day outing a tour through the gardens would be, topped up with lunch or a snack at Showcase, and (if you forgot a gift for Mom) a bit of shopping in the Showcase Shops. Most people will never own a giant mansion or an estate of 3.5 acres, but the small ideas garnered at Showcase can be applied in any home. This is especially true of the garden concepts. Those light fixtures in the greenhouse look doable, and the garden markers in Jan’s vegetable garden, anyone can make (look closely, this idea alone is worth the trip to showcase). Another great idea that most people forget is that showcase is open late three days a week and therefore a great after work spot. Rather than crawling home in bumper to bumper traffic on Fridaynight, why not park at the Rose Bowl and take that free shuttle to the Showcase House to enjoy a little glass of wine in the pub and relax while taking in the garden. Or stroll through the gardens to appreciate the lighting added by the designers to highlight various garden features. The gardens take one a whole new aspect at dusk and in the early evening. Showcase House is open until 9 pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings (the last house tour is set for 7:30 p.m.).

Behind the fountain located in Civic Center Plaza, 400 Civic Center Plaza Pomona, CA all right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County and state, and as more fully described in the above referenced Deed of Trust.

Said sale will be made in an “AS IS” condition, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to-wit: $400,505.20 (Estimated).

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 5731965 or visit this Internet Web site www. priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case 13-51081. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.

Metro board awards $927.2 Million Speaker John A. Pérez: contract to Skanska Governor’s economic development initiative The Los Angeles County score for pricing, based on access to more than will put Californians back to work Metropolitan Transportation the criteria in the request for 88,000 passengers saving Authority (Metro) Board of Directors today approved a $927.2 million contract to Regional Connector Constructors, a joint venture between Skanska USA Civil West California District, Inc. and Traylor Brothers Inc. to design and build the Regional Connector Transit Corridor Project. The Regional Connector light rail project will complete a 1.9 mile gap connecting the Metro Gold Line with the Blue and Expo lines by providing a direct connection with three new stations planned for 1st Street/ Central Avenue, 2nd Street/ Broadway and 2nd Place/ Hope Street in downtown Los Angeles. In addition to awarding the contract, the Board also approved an additional $39.99 million for the Regional Connector Life-of-Project budget for a total budget of $1.420 billion. Of the four bids received, Skanska/ Traylor had the overall highest ranking including the highest technical score and the highest evaluated

proposals. In recommending the award of the contract, staff noted that Skanska/Traylor indicated that they plan to finish construction 115 days early and will absorb the cost of any delays caused by Metro or subcontractors. The Regional Connector Project is an important rail connection project overwhelmingly approved by the voters and funded by the Measure R half-cent sales tax for LA County transportation improvements. Earlier this year, Metro joined federal, state and local elected officials in announcing the receipt of a Full Funding Grant Agreement (FFGA) from the Federal Transit Administration in the amount of $670 million and a $160 million low interest federal loan from a Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) to fund the project. The Regional Connector, expected to be completed in 2020, will attract nearly 17,000 new daily riders and provide

commuters up to 20 minutes off their daily commutes. It will provide a one-seat, one fare ride for commuters from Azusa to Long Beach and from East Los Angeles to Santa Monica without the need to transfer between rail lines for major east/west and north/south trips. The Metro Board also voted to have staff work with stakeholders and community members to identify and secure additional funding for an upper-level elevator entrance and pedestrian bridge to connect the 2nd /Hope Station to Grand Avenue and report back to the Board in September. The new Metro Rail extension will offer an alternative transportation option to congested roadways, provide significant environmental benefits and spur economic development throughout Los Angeles County. Through improved connectivity, riders will be better able to use the entire Metro Rail system, municipal bus lines and other regional transportation services.

Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. has announced three of five Hiring Credit pilot areas as part of the Governor’s Economic Development Initiative which was designed to help bolster California’s business climate and put Californians to work. The three announced pilot areas are: the geographic boundaries of the former Enterprise Zone area in the City of Merced; the geographic boundaries of the former Enterprise Zone area in the City of Fresno; and the numerous census tracts in the unincorporated areas of Riverside County that have high unemployment and high poverty rates. “While California’s economy is continuing to improve, too many areas of the state are still suffering

high unemployment and poverty rates,” said Speaker Pérez (D-Los Angeles). “We worked to address that by passing new employment credits to spur hiring in hard hit areas. Today’s announcement of pilot programs in the City of Merced, the City of Fresno, and parts of Riverside County that have particularly high unemployment and poverty rates, will ensure that even more Californians can be hired under this innovative program.” One provision of the Initiative is the New Employment Credit. The bill package established a new hiring tax credit for businesses that create new jobs in areas with high unemployment rates and poverty. In Pilot areas the credits are available for

wages paid between $10 and $28 per hour, instead of the $12 and $28 per hour required in non-pilot areas in the state. The credits are targeted at businesses who hire those that fit the “hard to hire” category (long-term unemployed, veterans, felons, Earned Income Tax Credit recipients, and those on CalWorks). The New Employment Credit is available for each taxable year beginning on or after January 1, 2014, and before January 1, 2021, to qualified taxpayers that hire a qualified full-time employee on or after January 1, 2014. In order to be allowed a credit, the qualified taxpayer must have a net increase in full-time employees in California, determined on an annual full-time equivalent basis.

Holocaust survivor honored Continued from page 1

California Holocaust Remembrance Week. "I am honored to be able to share Helen Rotenberg Lewin's story - a story of triumph over unspeakable evil," said Assemblymember Holden. "Helen lived through extreme privation and horrific experiences that are often neglected in history. We are here today to raise awareness of these events and honor Helen Lewin by saying, 'We will never forget'. Sierra Madre resident Helen Rotenberg Lewin was forced into hiding in a forest outside of Krasnik, Poland with a band of Jewish partisans to escape certain death at the hands of the Nazis who had ordered all Jews into camps. She and her family had little food or water, and lived in makeshift underground shelters always fearful of betrayal, capture and death. Her parents and six other brothers and sisters were killed during the war; she and three other brothers survived extermination by the Nazis. At wars end, she and her surviving brothers made their way to the American zone in Berlin. Three years later she and her husband Harry Rotenberg, moved

to Northern California where they purchased a chicken ranch and then, later a confectionary store. Several years following Harry's passing in 1988, Helen met Martin Lewin, remarried and eventually relocated to Sierra Madre to be near her son, Fred Rotenberg, daughter-in-

law Lori and their three children. Her son, Judge Fred Rotenberg of La Cañada accompanied his mother to the ceremony and was honored by Assemblymember Gatto. Her other son, Dr. Keith Rotenberg lives in New Jersey.

his pictures. At 9 years old I was asking, ‘Why is everyone crying about this guy? Why was he so important?’ So, she got a couple of albums out and I started listening to them and reading the lyrics. I said, ‘Wow! No wonder he was so important.’ Even at an early age I knew this was something cool.” His favorite Beatles songs? Sarrafs said those two are “All You Need is Love” and “Hey Jude.” And his favorite album is “Revolver.”

Sarraf added he even got to meet his idol McCartney a few years back at a book signing in Los Angeles. “It was pretty surreal,” Sarraf said. “I only got a few seconds, but it was cool.” In addition, Sarraf said the Fab Four is more than just a band. “Not only are we a band, we’re not like a bar band,” he said. “We have theatrical elements in our show. We have video and lighting elements in our show. We’re

actors, we’re musicians, we’re mimicks, we’re all of the above.” But it’s the music of the Beatles that keeps everyone coming back, he said. “The Beatles: You can’t go wrong,” he said. “It’s such a mass appeal. It touches so many different people in so many different ways.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com. He can be followed via Twitter @ segallanded.)
