Duarte Museum exhibits antique firearms A treasure trove of antique firearms is now on display at the Duarte Historical Museum. Once exhibited at Western State Bank located on Huntington Drive in Duarte in the 1980s, the collection has been in storage until recently. The current property owners have dusted off the collection and donated it to the Museum. “Some of these firearms are a throw-back to the civil
war era. Rendered inoperable for safety sake, many of the pieces are genuine, although a few are replicas,” says Claudia Heller, president of the Duarte Historical Society. The collection has a variety of pieces including a Phoenix Rifle with leather holster, a Remington handgun, a bayonet and a powder horn. “I’m sure as museum visitors look over the collection they will be able to tell
us some details about these firearms,” says Heller. Also on display are civil war photos and a circa 1980 rendering of the Western States Bank. The display will remain through May. The museum is located at 777 Encanto Parkway in Encanto Park, Duarte, and is open Saturdays 1-4 p.m. and the first and third Wednesday of each month 1-3 p.m. Admission is free.

the Seventh Day Adventist Church. We received the following statement from The Southern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists on Wednesday morning. Betty Cooney, Communications Director said told Beacon Media “The Southern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists [an administrative unit of the Adventist Church encompassing Los Angeles, Ventura, and parts of Kern and Santa Barbara Counties] is aware of recent media reports regarding Eric Walsh MD, MPH, DrPH. Dr. Walsh
serves the congregation of the Altadena Seventh-day Adventist Church as an associate pastor on a part-time basis. However, he does not hold ministerial credentials from the Adventist Church, does not speak on behalf of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination, and as far we know, does not represent his views as anything other than his own. The Seventh-day Adventist church has a long history of defending the rights of everyone to believe, practice and express their personal religious convictions.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church believes that all people, regardless of race, gender, age, creed, and sexual orientation, are children of God, whom he loves equally. As a Christian community we are called to reflect and spread this love to all of His children. Likewise, the Seventhday Adventist Church strives to serve their local communities. The Seventhday Adventist Church recognizes that every human being is valuable in the sight of God, and seeks to minister to all men and women in the spirit of Jesus.
