Monrovia city council rejects Chu’s NRA plan BY LOIS M. SHADE Lead by Ret. Senator Dick Mountjoy who resides in Monrovia, the community came out to the May 6 Monrovia City Council meeting to voice concerns about Congresswoman Judy Chu’s National Recreation Area legislation. Mountjoy warned the Council , ‘This a bad idea. You don’t know what is in it and you don’t even have a set map yet. People don’t know the boundaries.’ Mountjoy echoed resident, Fred Bowden’s concern about the bond Monrovia residents passed 14 years ago to buy wilderness areas above the city. This is a 30-year bond for $10 million the residents are obligated to pay off. He said the council is giving away property to the federal government and he and the citizens of Monrovia are going to have to continue to pay on that bond for another 15 or 16 years. Bowden said he also donated property to the Monrovia wilderness area, not to the federal government. Tom Adams, Mon-

BY TERRY MILLER Pasadena’s loss is Georgia and the ‘Bible Belt’s’ gain apparently. Beacon Media has confirmed that Dr. Eric Walsh has reportedly been offered a job as District Health Director for the North Georgia Health District, according to Ryan Deal, Communications Director for the State

of Georgia’s Public Health Dept. Deal was quick to point out in a telephone interview Tuesday evening that Walsh’s job offer is contingent on several factors including an extensive background check “which has revealed further details need investigating…” Please see page 15

I listened to a young friend the other day. She was hurting, and I was trying to think of what I could say to help. What was there I could possibly do to make her pain go away? I realized that I was doing it. I was listening. After our session, I went searching in my files for an old clipping that I remembered putting away for possible future use. That future had arrived and I'm glad I was able to remember the advice. I found the column which I share with you now. Maybe it will come in handy for you,too. It is called "Listen." When I ask you to listen to me and you start giving advice, you have not done what I asked. When I ask you to listen to me and you begin to tell me why I shouldn't feel that way, you are trampling on

my feelings. When I ask you to listen to me and you feel you have to do something to solve my problem, you have failed me, strange as that may seem. Listen! All I asked was that you listen, not to talk or do -- just hear me. Advice is cheap; a few cents will get you both "Miss Manners" and "Dr. K" in the same newspaper. And, I can do for myself. I'm not helpless. Maybe discouraged and faltering, but not helpless. When you do something for me that I can and need to do for myself, you contribute to my fear and inadequacy. But, when you accept as a simple fact that I do feel

what I feel, no matter how irrational, then I can quit trying to convince you and get about the business of understanding what's behind this irrational feeling. And when that's clear, the answers are obvious and I don't need advice. Irrational feelings make sense when we understand what's behind them. Perhaps that's why prayer works, sometimes, for some people -- because God is mute, and He doesn't give advice or try to fix things. He just listens and lets you work it out for yourself. So, please listen and just hear me. And, if you want to talk, wait a minute for your turn and I'll listen to you.

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

Strategic planning retreat Dear Editor: The Sierra Madre City Administration held a Retreat on April 26, 2014 in order to focus on their accomplishments for the 2014 year. Since they paid approximately $2,500.00 for an outside facilitator, did they also pay the employees for their attendance? They made a list of sixty-seven items that they had done, but only two were a reduction of financial costs to the taxpayer. The first item was: City Council unanimously recommended and adopted a water rate increase! The true evidence indicates that the numbers were erroneous and this should not have taken place. They allocated reserves

for maintenance; e.g., new roof for City Hall and the Public Safety Building, painting City Hall, painting the Library. Since the City Council passed these items back in 2013, why hasn't the work been done? They adopted a fiveyear Water Master Plan - all this means is that the overdue maintenance was further postponed. They updated the Development Impact Fees associated with new construction. This 5% fee was rushed to be updated primarily so that the City Council could collect S743.090 from the new assisted living facility. Other than the City's countless fees why does this fee even exist? Administration hired a

new Police Captain, three paramedic and eleven firefighters. Since these departments are already spending twice as much as the income from the UUT, why are we hiring more people and what became of the Volunteer Fire Department? Administration revised the Art in Public Places Program - this 1% fee on new development ranks as the most absurd fee that one could dream of - the City has already spent money to store artwork from the Library and doesn't have any idea of what kind of art to buy or where to display it. Adopted a Collection Policy and signed a contract with a collection agency. This refers to the paramedic program, when we had the

E.M.T service, since there was no charge to the patient for medical service rendered. Then came an annual fee, followed by charging a person's medical insurance. If a patient had no insurance, then NO charge was made. Instead of eliminating the charges, as they were in the beginning, they decided to charge everyone, but not do the billing themselves, but hire a collection firm which adds to the costs. These items only SCRATCH the surface of the constant cost increases to the taxpayers. This seems to be all that the City Administration can think of. How about trying to reduce the cost to the people and serve them as you should? Sierra Madre Watchman

No more cruelty to animals Dear Editor: Thanks for covering the PETA protestors trying to help the Orcas at Sea World. PETA is considered by some as

an extreme animal welfare organization against extreme cruelty on many fronts, and the only way to get peoples’ attention is to do things like appear at the Rose Parade. Large animals like Orcas should not be confined in small tanks with nothing

to see or do. This is definitely cruelty and many celebrities are now refusing to appear at SeaWorld. The practice of animals performing for our entertainment should end! Animals in circuses are subjected to miserable lives and circuses and rodeos should be a

thing of the past. We must try and eliminate animal suffering – they have no voices. Do something to help animals – eat a veggie burger. Find out about factory farming and slaughterhouses. They feel pain and fear. S. Jensen, Temple City

Dear Editor: Last week I was enjoying an early morning cup of coffee when I heard birds chirping near my back door. I looked out and saw a baby bird sitting on my door step. It was "hunkered down" and seemed to be pouting. On a nearby branch the parents (I am told they are Black Phoebes) were chirping encouragement to the baby to fly. First one, then the other would fly over the baby and flutter its wings as if to show the baby what it should do.

Eventually the baby flew a few feet to a bush, and the chirping from the parents continued. Then the baby flew back to the door step. This time it flew into the glass and I had to resist the temptation to rush out and help it. The baby appeared to be unharmed and was looking at the door with its head cocked to one side as if it were trying to figure out what had happened. Again the parents began chirping and the baby flew into the Ficus tree near to the parents. To my surprise

the parents flew away, only to return shortly and each fed the baby. I guess flying lessons take a lot of energy. I had to leave the scene for a while and on my return the birds were gone. I thought perhaps they were giving the baby advanced lessons in how to land on a telephone wire. But no, they were back in the nest. These lessons continued for five more days, and now the family has left the nest. I miss them, and I hope that they return next year. Jim Helms, Arcadia

Pasadena PD conducting Red Light enforcement - May 16 The Pasadena Police Department will be conducting a Red Light Enforcement Program on Friday, May 16, 2014. This enforcement detail will be deployed throughout the City of Pasadena. The hours of operation will be from 06:00 A.M to 1:00 P.M. The Pasadena Police Department is committed to reducing the number of traf-

fic collisions resulting from drivers running red lights or driving aggressively. The ultimate goal is to enforce and educate the driving public at the same time reducing serious injuries and fatal collisions. A RED LIGHT means stop at the limit line, crosswalk or before the intersection. Unless you are making

a right turn, you must wait for the green light before you proceed. After making a complete stop, you may turn right on a red light if the intersection/crosswalk is clear of pedestrians and traffic. However, if the intersection is posted with a “No Right Turn on Red” sign, you must wait for a green light before any turning movement.

The Social Whirl Chamber's government affairs forum All levels of government were represented at the Government Affairs Forum held at the Arcadia Chamber of Commerce. • Outgoing Arcadia councilman and four-time mayor Bob Harbicht shared insights into his record-setting 20 years on the Arcadia City Council. Harbicht is termed out per Arcadia’s city charter until 2016. On the subject of term limits he remarked that in all his years running his successful market research business no client ever said to him “I like your work, but I wish you had less experience.” The city is a large enterprise with many departments and “business experience is the single most important requirement” for councilmen. Looking back on the last 20 years, Harbicht was proud that the council realized “that we had to be more than a ‘City of Homes’-we are a city with a racetrack, a city with a

regional mall, a city with an industrial base.” With that in mind, the city “has been aggressive in seeking out businesses” he continued. Chamber CEO Scott Hettrick spoke about SB 1021 , a bill that would allow school districts to “assess property taxes at a different rate,” often called a “split roll.” Districts would be able to charge commercial properties a higher rate than residential, for example. A straw poll vote conducted on the spot garnered almost unanimous support for opposing SB 1021. Hettrick will be conferring with the Chamber Board of Directors next. Olivia Lee, representing Assemblyman Ed Chau encouraged attendees to write the assemblyman or email him regarding their stance on this bill. • Becky Cheng, representing Congresswoman Judy Chu, spoke about H.R. 4487, Legislative Branch Ap-

propriations Act. This bill provides for funding for specific projects including over $760,000 for hiring through the Wounded Warrior project as well as for the Books for the Blind program. • Olivia Lee, representing Assemblyman Ed Chau, announced that the symposium on the use of drones that the assemblyman is putting together will be at UCLA or UCI on August 6th. Lee also pointed out a growing tension between legislators from Northern California and those from Southern California related to drinking water. AB 1331 provides for funding dealing with all facets of water use and conservation in our drought-stricken state. • City of Arcadia Economic Development Manager Jerry Schwartz announced that there will be a Study Session to discuss the 2014-2015 Fiscal Budget on Tuesday, May 6 at 4:00 p.m. in the APD EOC room.

Schwartz also announced that the Walk of Champions, which honors important Arcadia figures in horse-racing, is slated for installation in September. Lastly he announced that Santa Anita Park will be hosting the Breeder’s Cup in November, the first time ever a venue has hosted the Breeder’s Cup three years in a row. Next month’s speaker will be Arcadia Chief of Police Bob Guthrie at the Chamber on June 8 at 8 a.m. The public is invited on the first Thursday of each month to hear informative presentations at the monthly Government Affairs Forum led by Chairman Jack Orswell from Orswell & Kasman, Inc. Environmental Assessments & Consulting, and co-chairman Pete Ulrich, former Arcadia City Councilman, RSVPs to the Chamber of Commerce office are appreciated….626/447-2159 or infor@ ArcadiaCaChamber.org.

The day was warm, the crowds light but the enthusiasm for the homes on tour was readily apparent as the Monrovia Historic Preservation Group (MOHPG) hosted its 32nd annual Mother’s Day Home Tour on Sunday, May 11, 2014. Over 550 visitors showed up to view the five homes, the Aztec Hotel, and the Monrovia Historical Museum that were open to the public for six hours, beginning at 10 a.m. Over 200 volunteers donated their time

on a special day to make the event a memorable experience, and the excitement was palpable as tour goers “oohed” and “aahed” upon seeing the interiors of the homes. Docents were stationed throughout the locations to provide visitors with details of the house’s history and enhance their appreciation of these vintage gems. Over twenty vintage “horseless carriages” could be seen driving around town or parked in

front of the homes that were open for the day. Besides being a fundraiser for MOHPG, the tour affords the community a chance to brag about the richness and diversity of its architectural heritage. The tradition of showcasing Monrovia’s building gems has been around since 1983 when the first tour was held. It is an annual tradition that will continue to demonstrate that the city places a high value upon its history and heritage.

Updated performance schedules to re-light the Carrie Hamilton Theatre at the Pasadena Playhouse

REAL ESTATE SPECIAL SECTION Publishes - June 12

The Pasadena Playhouse has updated the performance schedule for two unusual one-person shows – Amy G in Entershamement and Joe Orrach in In My Corner – to reopen the newly re-designed Carrie Hamilton Theatre. Entershamement has a limited run of five performances, while In My Corner runs for one night only. With these shows, that perform May 22 to May 31, The Playhouse is relighting the refurbished Carrie Hamilton Theatre, which has been changed from a proscenium theatre to a black box, and can be configured to accommodate many different kinds of productions. Amy G is a masterful entertainer (singer/comedian/rollerskater) fresh off the grill from starring in NYC's hit Off-Broadway show, La Soirée. She tours the world constantly, including wowing audiences at last years’ Playhouse “CirqueA-Palooza” Variety Arts Festival. Her unique style of physical, musical, standup and improvisational

comedy is inspired by and reminiscent of Carol Burnett, Liza Minnelli, Buster Keaton, Julie Andrews and the Muppet Show; but she is very much one of a kind. Orrach, an internationally renowned tap dancer, actor, singer, storyteller and United States Air Force welterweight boxing champ, came to fame as one of the stars of San Francisco’s long running Teatro ZinZanni from 2000 to 2006. Elizabeth Doran, the Executive Director of The Pasadena Playhouse said, “We have been looking for the ideal way to re-open the Carrie Hamilton Theatre after renovating it into a new and intimate black box theatre, and we think we found the ideal way with two extraordinary and unique performers, who will both entertain and dazzle us with their shows, but

allow us to show how versatile and welcoming the re-design of the theatre can be. We are very happy to be showcasing Amy G who came to prominence in last years ‘Cirque-APalooza’ festival and Joe Orrach – how many tap dancing welterweights are there? – in repertory.” Sheldon Epps, Artistic Director of The Pasadena Playhouse, said, "Like these two dynamic artists, Carrie Hamilton was a real maverick. She was known for her cutting edge artistic style and her celebration of the human spirit. We are now re-opening the Carrie Hamilton Theatre as a flexible space based on its original ‘Playbox’ construction. We do so in order to best produce the kind of artistic work our visionary founder, Gilmor Brown, and the theater's namesake, Carrie Ham-

ilton, would have loved. The new Carrie Hamilton Theatre will support new play development, thrilling artistic work, the work of our community partners, and programming for youth." The Carrie Hamilton Theatre at The Pasadena Playhouse is located at 39 South El Molino Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101. Tickets, priced at $15-$30, are available by calling The Pasadena Playhouse at 626-356-7529 or by visiting The Pasadena Playhouse Box Office, Tuesday – Sunday from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. during nonperformance dates. On performance dates the Box Office is open Tuesday – Saturday from 1:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, visit www.PasadenaPlayhouse. org.

The City of Pasadena’s first ‘hackathon’ was so successful that the two-day event has been expanded into an ongoing program with the participants. Pasadena’s Open Data portal debuted March 14 in conjunction with Hack for Pasadena, a civic hackathon that offered prizes for innovative apps that could lead to real improvements for the community. “The incredible participation in Hack for Pasadena shows the power of open data to bring the community together with the common goal of solving city challenges,” said Phillip Leclair, Pasadena’s chief information officer.“Our open data portal is another reflec-

tion of our commitment to transparency and accountability in city government.” The platform enables the city to quickly publish existing datasets from different sources and formats to searchable dashboards. The Pasadena Open Data site currently provides 74 data resources on transportation, city finance and budget, purchasing, public safety, permits, census data and more. The system is built on the Junar Open Data Platform. “Pasadena’s success demonstrates that opening data to the public can be accomplished quickly, without extensive IT resources and within a very affordable budget,” said Diego May, co-founder

and chief strategy officer for Junar. “Pasadena’s commitment to ongoing support for Hack for Pasadena will insure that creative apps come to full maturity and eventually bring direct benefits to the city.” Hack for Pasadena brought together the tech community, businesses, nonprofits, academia and city officials to explore how data could be used to solve complex civic problems. Participants worked in small groups to develop real apps. At the end of two days, each group presented their solutions to a panel of judges. Information on all 17 submissions and the winners is available at: http://hackforpasadena.challengepost.com/ submissions.

Opinion Walsh has left on that midnight train to Georgia By Terry Miller I can hear the Gladys Knight lyrics reverberating throughout Pasadena city hall as we speak. The saga of bigot Public Health director Dr. Eric Walsh is far from over. The man is a hypocrite in every sense of the word. Pasadena’s loss of Dr. Walsh is evidently Georgia and the so called ‘Bible Belt’s’ gain . Beacon Media has learned that pastor/ public health director for Pasadena Dr. Eric Walsh who has so plagued Pasadena with hate filled sermons, has been offered a job as District Health Director for the North Georgia Health District, according to Ryan Deal, Communications Director for the State of Georgia’s Public Health Dept. “L.A. proved too much for the man (Too much for the man, he couldn't make it) So he's leaving a life he's come to know, ooh (He said he's going) He said he's going back to find (Going back to find) Ooh, what's left of his world The world he left behind not so long ago He's leaving (Leaving) On that midnight train to Georgia, yeah (Leaving on the midnight train) Said he's going back (Going back to find) To a simpler place and time, oh yes he is” Deal was quick to point out in a telephone interview Tuesday evening that Walsh’s job offer is contingent on several factors including extensive background checks “which has revealed further details which need investigating…” Hmm, enquiring minds want to know. However, according to Pasadena ‘s Public Information Officer William Boyer, the controversial Dr. Walsh “Remains on

administrative leave…and to the best of my knowledge has not submitted his resignation.” This was as of Tuesday 5PM. Deal said the investigation on the background check is continuing and the assumption by Pasadena Star News earlier this week that Walsh is already hired and will start mid -June is not at all accurate and “ suffice to say, was premature.” Ryan Deal confirmed only that Walsh was offered a job but contingent on several checks and balances. It appears that “further details are required …” referring to Walsh’s background and extracurricular activities with the Seventh Day Adventist Church where numerous YouTube videos show the associate pastor preaching his own version of the gospel where rants and ridicule gnawed at the very wood surrounding his hate-filled lectern. We can’t help but wonder how a man with such rancor for his fellow man could be a “healer” or even utter the Hippocratic oath: “I will not cut for stone, even for patients in whom the disease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be performed by practitioners, specialists in this art. In every house where I come I will enter only for the good of my patients, keeping myself far from all intentional ill-doing and all seduction and especially from the pleasures of love with women or men, be

they free or slaves. All that may come to my knowledge in the exercise of my profession or in daily commerce with men, which ought not to be spread abroad, I will keep secret and will never reveal. If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practice my art, respected by all humanity and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse be my life.” Walsh did not disclose the fact he earned income from proselytization, his outright hatred for gays and Catholics. Walsh, a graduate of Seventh-day Adventistowned Oakwood University who also holds master's and doctorate degrees in public health, has directed Pasadena's Public Health Department since 2010, earning $193,600 in wages and $56,900 in benefits in 2012. The Catholic League perhaps summed it up best in a press release dated May 7. “It is not worth attempting to rebut the man’s ( Walsh) bigotry, so outlandish is it. Anyone whose judgment is that impaired has no legitimate role to play in public life.” I wonder if he’ll put in a travel expense form for that midnight train to Georgia on his final expense account. I doubt it! He gets a $500 car allowance per month. Walsh has left behind quite a mess for the City of Pasadena to mop up.

El Monte reinstates coordinating council to work collaboratively with local organizations Seeing an opportunity to work together with the nonprofit sector, the City of El Monte has reinstated the community’s Coordinating Council, an organization formed of representatives from local organizations to discuss upcoming activities. The purpose of the Coordinating Council is to work collaboratively to keep the public informed of local events in an effort to make El Monte a better place in which to live, work and raise a family. “The City of El Monte has various activities happening throughout our community all the time. It’s important to spread the word on these events” said Councilwoman Vic-

toria Martinez, who chairs the Coordinating Council. “The goal is to bring representatives from all of our hard-working organizations together so we can better schedule our events, promote them and find innovative ways to work collaboratively.” Organizations interested in participating in the Coordinating Council are encouraged to attend an upcoming meeting. The next meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 14 at 5 p.m. at El Monte City Hall East-City Manager’s Office Conference Room. The Coordinating Council was originally formed in the 1950s by Judge Otis and continued

successfully for several decades until activity tapered. After a few years of inactivity, Councilwoman Martinez organized the first meeting of the Council earlier this year. Currently, the Coordinating Council consists of local clubs, charitable organizations, businesses and churches that are actively planning events in the City. All interested local organizations are welcome to participate. Representatives are asked to bring calendars and any fliers you may have for upcoming events. For more information, please contact Sheila Crippen at scrippen@elmonteca.gov.

Monrovia city council rejects NRA Continued from page 1

rovia Council Member joined in pointing out Monrovia asked the federal government at that time to partner up and join in their efforts to preserve the Monrovia hillside and wilderness areas. The feds declined, so Monrovia residents did it themselves with the $10 million bond. Now that the land has been purchased we have someone who is a willing partner … why wouldn’t they be, it doesn’t cost them anything, said Adams. Adams said he had been to a meeting with Chu and was surprised when she said part of the reason her legislation is needed is because we have

no maps of the trails in the San Gabriel Mountains. He asked her about the maps and books the Santa Anita Historical Society has and she told him she had never heard of the organization. Adams said he was shocked that Chu professed to be so knowledgeable about the San Gabriels and wants to save them but knows so little about them. Despite Mayor Lutz’s push to move forward with support for the NRA legislation, the Council voted 5-0 to send a letter to Congresswoman Chu opposing Monrovia being in the National Recreation Area. Council voted 5-0 to support that motion with Mayor Lutz qualifying her vote

noting there are questions she would still like answers to regarding the NRA and the impact on Monrovia. Based on the longstanding unwritten rule in Monrovia that council members don’t put Monrovia’s name on anything that is controversial without coming back to the body for support, Adams asked the Council’s representative to the COG, Mayor Mary Ann Lutz, write a letter rescinding her vote supporting the NRA. Alternate motion was carried to copy the SGV COG on the letter to Congresswoman Chu opposing Monrovia’s inclusion in the National Recreation Area. Motion passed 5-0.

Toni Atkins sworn is as new California State Assembly Speaker Assemlymember Holden sent out the following statement after Toni Atkins was sworn in as the 69th Speaker of the California State Assembly. “Congratulations to Toni Atkins, Madame Speaker, as she is sworn in as the 69th Speaker of the California State Assembly. Speaker Atkins has proven to be a true leader and as proof of that, Assemblymembers on both sides of the aisle joined in

voting for her. I had the privilege of nominating her in March when colleagues praised her commitment to helping the homeless, supporting veterans issues and making affordable housing a top priority. Her humble beginnings growing up in the Appalachian mountains of Virginia prepared her to appreciate the needs of the less fortunate and to give them a voice in the halls of

power. Atkins election marks a number of “firsts”: she’s the first lawmaker from San Diego to hold the post, the first lesbian and the third woman. I look forward to working with Speaker Atkins in the weeks and months ahead as she tackles some of the major issues facing California: the water crisis, tackling the budget and growing California’s economy.”

Free confidential HIV Testing at AIDS Service Center now available In its continued efforts to reduce HIV transmission, AIDS Service Center (ASC) now offers free confidential HIV testing every first and third Thursday of the month from 5 PM to 7 PM. The INSTI Rapid HIV Antibody Test will be administered by AltaMed at ASC. Test results will be available in as little as sixty seconds. This year is the 33rd anniversary of the HIV epidemic and much progress has been made in the fight against the virus. However, Los Angeles County remains the second largest epicenter of HIV/AIDS in the United States. Over half of new HIV infections in the County are transmitted by those who are living with the virus and unaware of their positive sta-

tus. Therefore, it is important for people to get tested and know their HIV status. Being diagnosed and connected to care early help to ensure the best health outcomes. Know your status. Get tested. AIDS Service Center (ASC) is a community-based non-profit organization and has been serving those affected by HIV/AIDS in Los Angeles County since 1987. ASC was created from a need in the community. Our humble beginnings as an answering machine in the basement under the stairwell of All Saints Church was in response to the community’s need to seek answers to an illness that was affecting young men and others. The organization grew over the

years, continuing to develop ground-breaking models for the care of this ever changing disease. ASC was one of the first organizations in the United States to develop a Family & Pediatrics Case Management program in 1991. Currently, ASC focuses on providing housing assistance to people in need who are living with HIV; basic needs assistance, such as providing household items; HIV/AIDS prevention, education, and outreach; educational scholarships for advanced learning; and other HIV/AIDS-related services. All of the services and programs ASC offers are free of charge. Visit www.aidsservicecenter.org for more information about ASC.

Governor Brown expands health care coverage, San Gabriel United hosts pays down debt and shores up teachers' sewer tax forum - May 21 By SHEL SEGAL pensions in revised state budget Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. released a revised state budget Tuesday that provides health care to millions more Californians, pays down $11 billion in debt and fully funds the teachers’ retirement system over time. “This May Revision is good news for California,” said Governor Brown. “It shows that California can afford to provide health care to many more people, while at the same time paying its debts and shoring up the longtroubled teachers’ retirement system.” The Governor’s revised budget plan comes on the heels of an agreement with legislative leaders of both parties to bring greater stability to the state’s finances in the years to come. The agreement, based on the Governor’s January proposal, establishes a Rainy Day Fund that allows the state to save for the future while paying down its debts and unfunded liabilities. The proposal is expected to go before voters in November.

For the budget year (2014-15), the May Revision sets aside $1.6 billion to make the final payment on the Economic Recovery Bonds and another $1.6 billion for the Rainy Day Fund. The May Revision reflects more than $2 billion in added costs over and above the January budget. This includes higher spending to provide health care coverage under Medi-Cal for a million more people, emergency drought assistance, added funding to meet the Proposition 98 guarantee for K-14 schools, caseload increases in the In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program, additional contributions to the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) and added staffing to administer California’s unemployment insurance program. When Governor Brown took office, the state faced a massive $26.6 billion budget deficit and estimated annual shortfalls of roughly $20 billion. These deficits, built up

over a decade, have now been eliminated by a combination of budget cuts, temporary taxes and the recovering economy. Significant details of the May Revision: Shoring Up Teacher Pensions The May Revision proposes a plan of shared responsibility among the state, school districts and teachers to shore up the State Teachers’ Retirement System (STRS). The increased contributions in the first year from all three parties total about $450 million, but would grow thereafter to more than $5 billion annually in 2020-21. The plan would eliminate the unfunded liability in approximately 30 years. Implementing Federal Health Care Reform Compared to what was projected in the January budget, 1.4 million more people will be covered through Medi-Cal, at a cost of an additional $1.2 billion. Enrollment is now expected to rise from 7.9 million in 2012-13 to 11.5 million in 2014-15, for a

total cost increase of $2.4 billion. Increased Money for Drought Response The May Revision provides an additional $142 million ($121 million General Fund) in drought-related expenditures to reflect necessary spending on firefighting, emergency response, water management, wildlife preservation and food assistance. Paying Down Debts and Liabilities The Governor’s January Budget proposes to reduce the Wall of Debt by more than $11 billion this year alone and fully eliminate it by 2017-18. The Budget will completely pay off all remaining deferrals to schools and the Economic Recovery Bonds this year. The May Revision includes an additional $100 million to repay a portion of existing mandate reimbursement claims that have been owed to local governments since at least 2004. Additional details on the May Revision can be found at www.ebudget.ca.gov

Daren Grilley, San Gabriel city engineer, will be the featured speaker as San Gabriel United will be hosting a community educational forum on the city of San Gabriel’s proposed sewer tax from 7 to 8 p.m. on May 21 at the Elks Lodge, located at 1373 Las Tunas Drive. Anna Battaglia, a member of San Gabriel United, said all in the community are welcome to attend. “We’re having a community educational forum and we’re going to have our city engineer talk about the sewer repairs,” she said. “The reason why we’re having this is the city is asking us to pay a sewer fee. All property owners have to pay this sewer fee, if it’s passed.” She added she hopes the forum will make members of the community more knowledgeable about the proposed sewer tax. “If anyone wants to protest (the proposed tax)

they have until June 3,” she said. Battaglia also said her group is just trying to get the word out about all important issues that are affecting the residents and business owners of San Gabriel. “This is to educate the public about what’s going on in San Gabriel so that they can make a decision,” she said. “Like I said if you want to protest this you need to submit your letter. If they agree with it then they do nothing.” In the past San Gabriel United has held community educational forums on the issues of street repairs, massage parlors and hotels in the city, Battaglia said. For more information or to RSVP, call (626) 2874922 or email sangabrielunited@gmail.com. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com. He can be followed via Twitter @segallanded.)

Conflict is natural. It happens every day between people and in groups. It’s something that managers routinely face. How you handle it determines if it works to your team’s advantage or not. Leaders take different approaches to conflict. There are those who ignore it and hope it goes away, but inevitably it festers growing in potency. Others complain about how their team doesn’t work well together and they just need to get along. Some leaders deal with conflict with more conflict by placing blame and taking sides. Then there is the courageous leader who uses conflict constructively through communicating, collaborating, negotiating and integrating competing interests. Conflict doesn’t have to be a bad thing that leaves a wake of destruction. Rather it can be constructive and beneficial. Handled openly, respectfully and with an aim to improve the group it can spur healthier work relationships, inspire innovation, generate better problem solving and spark creative decision making. Here are a few simple and effective approaches to conflict management.

Acknowledge the Conflict: First, recognize that it exists rather than trying to keep it below the surface where it can fester and grow. Acknowledging conflict allows you to talk to your team about what’s going on and get their input on solutions. This also shows that you’re willing to work through difficult situations for the betterment of the group. Encourage Communication: If the conflict exists between two people encourage them to talk. People involved in conflict generally need to talk about the issue, their opinion and their feelings in order to resolve the matter. First though, it’s critical that you help prepare them for the conversation otherwise fireworks could go off creating even more damage. Coach them to first understand the situation from the other person’s point of view by asking their perspective on the matter. Then listen openly and deeply. Resolution cannot be truly achieved if both parties don’t genuinely feel heard and understood. Move from Conflict to Cooperation: Once the issue it out in the open look for solutions to strengthen relationships, build respect and

bolster team effectiveness. If the conflict resides within the whole team then once the group is ready for resolution bring them together to brainstorm solutions. One technique is to have them anonymously write down ideas on pieces of paper that are placed in a container which are then drawn and read aloud randomly. That way team members feel safe expressing their ideas. Agreement for Moving Forward: Now that a solution has been agreed to, it’s important that people focus on the future rather than the past. That means encouraging your team to let go of the past problem and focus on the resolution. Remind them that their commitment to the solution is what makes conflict healthy for a team rather than dysfunctional. So the next time conflict arises on your team approach it as a friend rather than a foe. A friend that through communication, collaboration, negotiation and integration can create a stronger and more cohesive team.

Quasimodo, nicknamed “Quasi,” is 7 and shows off a white “bib.” She’s timid but sweet, and purrs easily when she gathers the courage to come get some petting. Both girls are healthy and spayed. They would be great, together, in a quiet adult home or in a family with gentle older children. Please help them stay together.

Eric Walsh Continued from page 1

However, according to Pasadena ‘s Public Information Officer William Boyer, the controversial Dr. Walsh “Remains on administrative leave…and to the best of my knowledge has not submitted his resignation.” Deal said the investigation on the background check is continuing and the assumption by Pasadena Star News that Walsh is hired and will start mid -June is not accurate and “ suffice to say, premature.” Ryan Deal confirmed only that Walsh was offered a job but contingent on several checks and balances. It appears that “further details are required …” referring to Walsh’s background and extra-curricular activities with the Seventh Day Adventist Church where numerous YouTube videos show the associate pastor preaching his own version of the gospel. Dr. Eric Walsh has been recorded preaching sermons condemning society’s growing acceptance of gay and lesbian people. Walsh leveled attacks at the American Psychiatric Association’s decision in 1973 to declassify homosexuality as a mental illness, saying those who supported it were “raised up by the (devil).” In a sermon focused on the Bible’s story of Sodom and Gomorrah, Walsh also condemned schools for their tolerance of LGBT students. “In our public school system they began to teach moral relativism,” he was recorded as saying. “They began to teach that there really is no absolute right or

wrong. It’s more a matter of what you think or what you accept. And (according to that doctrine) if two adults agree to do something, it’s not wrong because they are both consenting adults. That is doctrine from the pits of hell. What makes something right is not based on man, it is based on God.” On May 1, City Manager Michael Beck sent a press release to media outlets saying, “Dr. Eric Walsh has been placed on temporary paid administrative leave to provide the city of Pasadena the opportunity to complete an inquiry into statements made by him in his private capacity and to assess the impact those statements might have on his ability to effectively lead the city’s Public Health Department,” Beck said in a statement. “The Public Health Department remains a strong and vital part of the city of Pasadena organization and remains dedicated to protecting the health and wellness of our entire community.” Walsh's comments became common knowledge after he was slated to replaced Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black as Pasadena City College's commencement speaker. College officials said they replaced Black because they found stolen photographs of him and an ex-boyfriend engaged in sexual acts . The college, now has reversed its original decision and Black did speak at last Friday’s commencement at PCC. Walsh was hired as the

director of Pasadena's Public Health Department in 2010. He also served as the city's public health officer and oversaw the creation of a dental clinic that served low-income patients, as well as those with HIV/AIDS who could not get care elsewhere. We spoke to Anthony Guthmiller, Executive Director of AIDS Service Center in Pasadena who said “This is sad news. My dealings with Dr. Walsh have not been reflective of the comments being made ( in the media). Our priority at ASC is to continue to ensure that our current and past clients continue to receive the support and services that we have provided the community for over 25 years.” The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights issued the following statement regarding the drama which has unfolded in regard to this year’s Pasadena City College commencement speaker choice…or should I say 11th hour reversal. Filmmaker Dustin Lance Black contends he was invited to give this year’s commencement address at Pasadena City College (PCC), and was then disinvited because a video of him having sex with his boyfriend surfaced. PCC officials say a student leader was to blame for inviting him. PCC then invited Dr. Eric Walsh, head of the Pasadena Public Health Department, to take his place. Then it was learned that

Life saving 'Click It or Ticket' mobilization begins Arcadia police department kicks off high visibility enforcement The Arcadia Police Department wants to remind motorists to Click It or Ticket. In order to enforce this reminder, beginning Monday, May 19th, officers will be joining in the 2014 national seat belt enforcement mobilization and cracking down on motorists who are not belted. Even with a seatbelt usage rate of 97.4 percent, California still has 800,000 or more who aren’t buckling up. In a crash, they stand a 50 percent greater chance of being killed than those who have taken the two seconds to buckle in. In an on-going effort to reach those remaining safety hold-outs, police, sheriff and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) departments across the state will be taking part in Click It or Ticket from May 19 through June 1. “Memorial Day weekend kicks off summer vacation season, and we want to ensure that everyone arrives at their destination safe and sound,” said Sgt. Kollin Cieadlo. “If you are not wear-

ing your seat belt, you will be ticketed.” According to new data released from the Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), fatalities are up nationwide for the first time in five years. In 2012, 10,335

people w h o were killed in motor vehicle crashes were not wearing their seat belts. NHTSA data also details how more traffic vehicle deaths occur at night. In 2012, 61 percent of passenger vehicle occupants killed during the nighttime hours of 6:00 p.m. – 5:59 a.m. were not wearing their seat belts. “Wearing a seat belt is

one of the easiest and best things you can do to protect yourself in the event of a car crash,” said Rhonda Craft, Director of the California Office of Traffics Safety. “Taking a few moments to properly secure yourself and all your passengers before going on your way could mean the difference between life and death.” The cost for a seat belt violation in California for unbuckled vehicle occupants over age 16 is a minimum of $161 for a first offense. The penalty fees for failing to properly buckle up any child under the age of 16 is a minimum $490 per child for a first offense, plus a violation point will be added to the driver’s record. If the parent is not in the car, the driver gets the ticket.

High school scholarship winners announced Surviving a wildfire, vegetation management Pasadena’s Water and Power Department (PWP) tapped into the power of creativity this spring, awarding $6,000 as part of its first PWP Educational Scholarships to high school seniors Ashley Storms and William O’Keeffe. The winners were announced at the Pasadena Earth & Arts Festival Saturday, May 3 at Memorial Park. Storms earned the top prize of $5,000 for her essay advocating the use of solar, wind and water power to meet the country’s energy needs and curb global warming. A Pasadena native and senior at Marshall Fundamental High School, she is a member of the school Color Guard and Key Club, and a student representative for Marshall’s Black Student Union. Her busy school schedule includes several Advanced Placement (AP) classes, and she is known among the Marshall faculty as a talented writer; a smart, dedicated, tenacious student and a delightful individual. Storms has selected Humboldt State University for its focus on sustainability. She plans to

major in Wildlife Management and Conservation, with dreams of becoming a Wildlife Rehabilitation Specialist. O’Keeffe earned the second-place award of $1,000 with his essay on using social media and a statewide “Water Fast” campaign to promote water conservation. A senior at Blair High School and captain of the varsity basketball team, O’Keeffe has impressed teachers with his creativity, big personality, love of learning and strong scores on tough AP exams in American History and Politics. With a passion for reading, learning about different cultures and world history, O’Keeffe plans to study history at Gonzaga University this fall, with hopes of becoming a history professor. “Our sincere congratulations go to these outstanding Pasadena students,” PWP General Manager Phyllis E. Currie said. “PWP is committed to supporting our city’s youth and preparing the next generation for higher education and the workforce. We are especially proud to

Year after year, Sierra Madre is faced with the potential for disaster. As we get closer to brush fire season with its high temperatures and low humidity the once green vegetation that surrounds our City starts to turn brown as the moisture is pulled from it by the Santa Ana winds that blow in off the deserts. The thick, volatile chaparral that blankets our hillsides are like bombs waiting for their fuses to be lit. We have all heard the term "firestorm" used to describe the incredible temperatures and tremendous winds that are generated in a raging chaparral fire. Hardly any house can withstand direct exposure to such a storm. Wildland fires usually pass by fast and furiously. Typically, they're controllable only when the wind dies out or they run out of fuel. If you reduce the amount of combustible brush around your house, you have taken the first step to preventing disaster. The success over the 2008 Santa Anita fire that occurred six years ago this

month was no accident. The Fire Department put up a good fight; however, we could not have done it without the help of the homeowners who gave us a "fighting chance" by maintaining proper brush clearance around their homes. Each year, The Sierra Madre Fire Department works with the residents in the foothills to help provide that "fighting chance" that is desperately needed to prevent a disastrous fire. This is done through an aggressive brush management program and by educating the residents on what to do before, during, and after a brush fire. Here is a list of the brush clearance requirements that you can use to protect your home: • Maintain the first 30 feet around any structure free of native brush and hazardous vegetation. • Aggressively thin and trim the vegetation 30 to 100 feet around any structure. • Remove dead branches from trees and keep all braches 6 feet off the ground. • Clear vegetation

10 feet from roadways. • Remove tree limbs that are within 10 feet of a chimney outlet. • Maintain 5 feet of vertical clearance between your roof and overhanging vegetation. • Keep all roof surfaces clear of dead leaves and twigs. • Post your street number on your house so it is visible from the street. In Sierra Madre, we have a conscientious community of educated, resourceful and dedicated citizens concerned about fire prevention. The need for fire prevention needs to be known. You can help us combat urban wildfire in your neighborhood, but you must start around your own home. This year’s Brush Inspections will begin midMay. Working together, we can accomplish a common goal; abatement of hazardous vegetation. If you have any questions, or would like additional information, please contact the Sierra Madre Fire Prevention Bureau at 3553611.

Louis Zamperini Continued from page 1

97, will ride in the 126th Rose Parade® presented by Honda on January 1, 2015. Tournament of Roses President, Richard L. Chinen, made the announcement at a press conference and public event at Tournament House in Pasadena. In his remarks, Chinen referred to Zamperini as inspiring in his courage and resilience. “Louis Zamperini’s life story illustrates the strength of human spirit in many ways. From becoming a young sports hero in Southern California to surviving for 47 days on an inflatable raft in the Pacific Ocean and then persevering for more than two years held in captivity in Japan, Louis now lives as an enduring symbol of perseverance, heroism and forgiveness. His life is truly a series of ‘Inspiring Stories,’ and I am elated and humbled that he accepted our invitation to be the 2015 Grand Marshal.” “It is such an honor to be the Grand Marshal of

the 126th Rose Parade,” said Zamperini. “Growing up in Torrance, the parade route on Colorado Boulevard is one I have been familiar with my whole life. I look forward to sharing the experience with my family and all the fans of the Rose Parade who will be watching.” Zamperini wrote his personal history in the book “Devil at My Heels” and his life story was documented in the New York Times best-selling book, “Unbroken,” written by Pulitzer Prize winning author, Laura Hillenbrand. In December 2014, Universal Pictures will release the movie, “Unbroken,” a feature adaptation of the book. Born in 1917 to Italian immigrants, Zamperini moved to Torrance, California in 1919 and became a world-class runner by the end of high school. Qualifying to run in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, he was America’s top finisher in the 5000 meter run, finishing the final lap in 56 seconds and causing Adolf Hitler to request a personal meeting with the

track star. During World War II, Zamperini retired from running and joined the U.S. Armed Forces as a bombardier in the South Pacific. While on a reconnaissance mission, Zamperini’s aircraft crashed into the Pacific Ocean. He and a crewmate survived for 47 days in shark-infested waters eventually drifting into a Japanese-controlled region where he was held and tortured for another two years. He survived the brutality of the war and came back to Southern California where he was treated like a hero and celebrated for his longevity. Zamperini married, had a family and started on a quest of forgiveness as an inspirational speaker – meeting with and forgiving the Japanese military guards who tortured him. Zamperini currently lectures around the world on how to deal with stress, the meaning of Olympic spirit and the freedom he has found through a personal relationship with God.

Colorado Commons, former for-lease townhomes in the heart of Old Town Monrovia, is resuming original plans to sell the community as condominiums. The 68 residences open for sale May 17, and are among very few opportunities to purchase high-end condominiums in the San Gabriel Valley. Polaris Pacific is managing the marketing and sales program for the community. Colorado Commons is set within a two-acre setting with neighborhood gathering spaces throughout. Its courtyards and stone-paved paseos lead to Monrovia’s friendly, walkable downtown, with quaint restaurants, shopping, schools, a farmers’ market and concerts in the park. “This is a rare opportunity for high-quality home ownership in the San Gabriel Valley,” said Michael Barker, CEO and Managing Director of Barker Pacific Group, the development group overseeing Colorado Commons. PCCP, LLC was the equity partner for the development of Colorado Commons. “Monrovia is an exceptionally desirable community nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Colorado Commons is literally steps away from Monrovia’s classic Old Town. There are no other offerings in the region

for condominium ownership hidden within one of the most charming small towns in California.” Colorado Commons’ 68 residences (including six flexible live-work units) range from one-bedroom plus oneor two-bath flats to spacious three-bedroom plus 2.5-bath townhomes. Prices range in the mid-$300,000s to the mid-$700,000s. Although the homes were built in 2008 to high-end specifications, all residences will be stylishly upgraded. Homes include granite countertops, stainlesssteel appliances, tile in bathrooms and washer/dryer laundry spaces in each home. Additions include hardwood floors in the living rooms, Berber carpeted stairs and many more upgrades. Colorado Commons offers two parking spaces per home; however, many residents leave their cars in the garage most of the weekend, as the many attractions of Old Town are right at their doorsteps. Historic Myrtle Avenue is designed for walking, with dozens of charming, independent shops and restaurants, along with a 12-screen movie palace. The popular Friday street fair includes a certified farmers’ market with craft and food booths, kiddie rides, live music and more. Liberty Park is

the quaint and quiet “town square” of the community, with new 28,000-square-foot Public Library, band shell, playground, fountain, shaded walkways. It is also the setting for classic community events such as Fourth of July fireworks celebrations. Monrovia will also soon benefit from the arrival of the Metro Gold Line light rail, offering residents convenient transportation to Pasadena, Downtown Los Angeles, and elsewhere in Southern California. The May 17 opening – including the unveiling of new models – is the first opportunity to purchase at Colorado Commons. Existing residents of Colorado Commons are offered right of first refusal for purchase as the homes are refurbished and released in phases. Interested homebuyers are encouraged to visit www.LiveColoradoCommons.com to join the interest list. “Colorado Commons, with its courtyards, paseos and stylish townhomes, is part of what makes downtown Monrovia so attractive,” said Barker. “It’s a village-like community concealed within a beautiful small town. But it won’t remain a secret for long: We expect strong interest in this rare opportunity.”

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

he has made bigoted comments about gays, Muslims, and Catholics. So he stepped aside. Now Black has been formally invited to speak, and he has accepted. Dr. Walsh has accused Catholics of idolatry for “worshipping” the Virgin Mary. Similarly, statues of the Virgin of Guadalupe, he says, are “a lie of Satan.” He has also slammed, and distorted, the Church’s teachings on evolution. Moreover, he contends the devil established DH_Beacon_030320140-OL.indd 1

Catholicism, and the pope is the “anti-Christ.” “It is not worth attempting to rebut the man’s (Walsh) bigotry, so outlandish is it. Anyone whose judgment is that impaired has no legitimate role to play in public life.” Regarding the decision to invite, or re-invite, Black, it smacks of cultural politics to say that “details of Mr. Black’s personal life have no place in public discussion.” But if the Internet videos of

Dr. Walsh’s comments are sufficient to disqualify him, why are not the Internet videos of Black? PCC and the Public Health Department are funded by the taxpayers. Regrettably, the city now has a major PR problem.” The Catholic League stated in a press release dated May 7 Walsh, is still collecting $193,600 and $56,900 in benefits while the city investigates during his “paid administrative leave.”

Without warning or provocation, she picked up a large rock and threw it at the police building. The rock struck a first floor window breaking the glass. A police sergeant was seated at his workstation and was injured by the glass shards from the broken window. The injured sergeant immediately left his workstation, ran out onto Garfield Avenue and detained the suspect. Other PPD officers assisted with the contact and the suspect was subsequently arrested without further incident. The sergeant was medically treated at the police station and immediately returned to his duties. May 9 at about 12:03 a.m. Pasadena Police officers responded to the area of Del Vina and Eaton Drive regarding an Assault with a Deadly Weapon Investigation. On arrival officers talked with the victim who said he was driving his motorcycle north on the 100 freeway when he noticed a vehicle approaching very quickly from behind him. The suspect vehicle struck the motorcyclists causing to crash. The suspect vehicle fled the location; however, a short time later reappeared near Del Vina Street and Eaton Drive. The suspect exited his vehicle and confronted the motorcyclists. The suspect approached the victim striking him with large piece of wood. A suspect emerged from the car and threatened to kill the victim. The suspects were subsequently arrested by PPD officers with no further incident and book at the Pasadena jail.

A portion of the list appears in each of such newspapers. NOTICE OF IMPENDING POWER TO SELL TAX-DEFAULTED PROPERTY Made pursuant to Section 3361, Revenue and Taxation Code Notice is hereby given that real property taxes and assessments on the parcels described below will have been defaulted five or more years, or, in the case of nonresidential commercial property, property on which a nuisance abatement lien has been recorded or that can serve the public benefit by providing housing or services directly related to low-income persons when three or more years have elapsed and a request has been made by a city, county, city and county, or nonprofit organization that property will become subject to the Tax Collector's power to sell. The parcels listed will become subject to the Tax Collector's power to sell on July 1, 2014, at 12:01 a.m., by operation of law. The Tax Collector's power to sell will arise unless the property is either redeemed or made subject to an installment plan of redemption initiated as provided by law prior to 5:00 p.m., on June 30, 2014. The right to an installment plan terminates on June 30, 2014, and after that date the entire balance due must be paid in full to prevent sale of the property at public auction.

All information concerning redemption or the initiation of an installment plan of redemption will be furnished, upon request, by Mark J.

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 this 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 (866)-960-8299 or visit this Internet Web site http://altisource.com/ resware/TrusteeServicesSearch.aspx using the file number assigned to this case 201225472.

The California Assembly Monday passed legislation that would ban the state from selling or displaying the Confederate flag, or any similar image. Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly was the sole vote in opposition. Donnelly, of Twin Peaks near Lake Arrowhead, said the bill violated the 1st Amendment and “would silence free speech.” “We shouldn’t be here picking the kind of speech that we like. I abhor racism but the concept that in a country that was founded on the right of free speech ... that we are going to ban certain types of speech is antithetical to the 1st Amendment,” Donnelly said on the floor of the Assembly. “I am not standing here defending the symbol,’’ he said. “I am standing here defending the principle that the 1st Amendment should

apply in all state buildings, of all places.” The legislation passed 72 to 1 and now heads to the state Senate for consideration.

Assemblyman Isadore Hall III (D-Compton) said the battle flag of the Confederacy is a symbol of “racism, exclusion, oppression and violence toward many Americans.”

keyboardist of the Grammy Award Winning band, Yellowjackets. He has worked with Bobby McFerrin, Al Jarreau, Diane Reeves and many more. The annual fundraiser was held at the Langham Huntington Hotel and attended by over 350 people in the community who contribute so much to the benefit of the organization that helps so many homeless in our communities. CEO, Rabbi Marvin Gross introduced actor John C. Riley to guests prior to the dinner and the actor/musician graciously posed for some pictures with fans. The guests mingled and bid on silent auction items and dined on some delicious hors d'oeuvres while sipping some fine wines prior to the main event held in an adjacent ballroom. Union Station addresses so many issues in our community but here’s a brief overview of the critical work they do: Hunger and homelessness are not simply caused by a lack of food and shelter. They involve a variety of unmet physical, economic, and social needs: Lack of affordable housing, unemployment, underemployment, domestic violence, and rising health care costs can push families, low-income workers, seniors, and people with disabilities out of their homes and onto the streets. Here is a look at some of the major causes of homelessness. HOUSING COSTS $1,150: Rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Greater L.A. What has caused this is gentrification, abandonment, and demolition have reduced the availability of affordable housing. Fair market rent for a twobedroom apartment in LA is nearly $14,000 per year. EMPLOYMENT 111: Hours per week a minimum-wage earner must work to afford a one-bedroom apartment in Greater L.A. People in the lowest paying jobs – cashiers, food preparation staff, stock clerks – struggle to afford rent and are at very high risk of becoming homeless. The lowest-income workers spend between 50% to 70% of their income on rent. HEALTH 1 in 3 homeless people suffer from mental illness, physical disability, or sub-

stance abuse. For many individuals, ongoing health issues (including disabilities and mental illness) prevent them from earning income and contribute to their homelessness. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE 3 in 5 homeless women have experienced domestic violence. Victims of domestic violence are often forced to choose between a dangerous home and a life on the streets. While the event honored some special individuals, Union Station is one of

the top agencies in Los Angeles county that provides a plethora of possibilities for popel in San Gabriel Valley.
