BY TERRY MILLER Just what is this ‘British Home', and why is it in Sierra Madre? This was one of many questions I had 16 years ago when I joined this newspaper group and learned of the

place on Manzanita in Sierra Madre, known simply as The British Home. As a British subject, albeit permanent resident of the States, I was naturally curious to see what it was all about. Plus I needed a nice cup of tea.

I can tell you, it is a brilliant, matchless gem – a residential care facility for seniors, both British and otherwise that has been a terrific part of the community for almost one hundred years. Once I made myself known to the home, I was al-

The Arcadia Police Department received a tip of a possible indoor marijuana cultivation in the 1000 block of North First Avenue. Arcadia detectives were called in and they obtained a search warrant. On May 20, 2014 at 3:00 AM, Arcadia Detectives and officers served the search warrant and found two indoor marijuana cultivations. The first cultivation was in the process of being dismantled. The second cultivation was sophisticated marijuana grow operation with approximately 150 plants in various stages of growth. The grow

'Tis a rare moment

By Dorothy Denne Oh my. Summer hath arriven a little early. Hot, hot weather is here. Those who know me, and those who read my writings, know I hate hot, hot weather. Since I retired from teaching, I've never found a reason to look forward to summer. Yet, there is such a peacefulness in the rare quiet of this late morning that I can luxuriate in my physical discomfort, for it is far outweighed by my mental catharsis. The purple-blue Lilyof-the-Nile and the gold of Daylillies provide sharp contrast to the variegated greens of the Jade, the Pittosporum, the Laurel-leaf and the blossom-naked

Crapemyrtles, Liquidambers, and Flamegolds. All this backgrounded by the weather-browned San Gabriel mountains, topped by what looks to be a single row of miniature trees reaching into the cloudless blue sky. I sit in my favorite corner of the patio of the Peacock Cafe. The peacocks have absented themselves to hide in the shade of bush and tree. The hiss-chrr, hisschrr, hiss-chrr of rotating sprinklers and the would-be roar of a plane, muffled to a low drone by distance, provide the only interruption to my solitude. A tender memory comes to mind: my mother and my Aunt Jessie stand in front of the altar of the old Chandlersville, Ohio, Methodist church on a hot Sunday morning. They raise their voices in song, "I come to the garden alone while

the dew is still on the roses, and the voice I hear falling on my ear, the Son of God discloses. He speaks, and the sound of his voice is so sweet the birds hush their singing, and the melody that he gave to me within my heart is ringing. And he walks with me, and he talks with me, and he tells me I am his own; and the joy we share as we tarry there, none other has ever known." The air is hot, hot. I sweat. I whistle the tune. I am at peace. 'Tis a rare moment, indeed. Footnote to Dorothy’s column, In my column last week I quoted the poem "Listen" from an old newspaper clipping. I had no author. A reader was kind enough to inform us that the author was Leo Buscaglia (thank you Mr. M.). I will add that if you want to read some really wonderful inspirational works, look up some of Buscaglia's books. I'm a big fan.

Sun Kailiang and four other Chinese nationals wanted by FBI for cyber-crime conspiracy against US companies On the first day of May, a grand jury in the Western District of Pennsylvania indicted five members of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) for 31 criminal counts, including: conspiring to commit computer fraud; accessing a computer without authorization for the purpose of commercial advantage and private financial gain; damaging computers through the transmission of code and commands; aggravated identity theft; economic espionage; and theft of trade secrets. The subjects, including Sun Kailiang, were officers of the PRC’s Third Department of the General Staff Department of the People’s Liberation Army (3PLA), Second Bureau, Third Office, Military Unit Cover Designator (MUCD) 61398, at some point during the investigation. The activities executed by each of these individuals allegedly involved in the conspiracy varied according to his specialties. Each provided his individual expertise to an alleged conspiracy to penetrate the computer networks of six American companies while those companies were engaged in negotiations or joint ventures or were pur-

suing legal action with, or against, state-owned enterprises in China. They then used their illegal access to allegedly steal proprietary information including, for instance, e-mail exchanges among company employees and trade secrets related to technical specifications for nuclear plant designs. Sun, who held the rank of captain during the early stages of the investigation, was observed both sending malicious e-mails and controlling victim computers.

The Primary Election on June 3, 2014 should be of importance to the voters of Sierra Madre. There are two propositions on the ballot. Prop 41 seeks to divert 600 million dollars of the 2008 Veteran Bonds, which will take away the money from the Veterans that are being discharged from service and need to start their civilian life once again. They deserve this help much more than any other use. VOTE NO ON THIS PROP 41. Prop 42 seeks to stop local governments from being reimbursed for their work on unfunded State mandates. This is more of the same kind of thing that the State has long burdened the local cities with. They mandate the orders and then they do not want to pay the cities for the costs of carrying out their mandates. NOTE; VOTE

NO ON PROP 42. These are the same kind of issues that Jerry Brown has done upon his return to the Governor's Office, Prop 30 increased the State income taxes and sales taxes on the taxpayers of Sierra Madre and the State. He also cancelled out the CRA agency in Sierra Madre and thereby grabbed the property taxes which Sierra Madre and other cities are receiving in order to improve their city. This gave local control of the money for the projects that each city needed. This action led to the creation of the CRA Successor Agency, which is managed by an appointed committee, instead of the City Council. This has resulted in a secret handling of the property tax dollars and the people are uninformed as to the income and expense. This

becomes more important due to the approximately $15M of building improvements which are within the CRA zone in Sierra Madre. Will Sierra Madre receive a portion of the tax increase, and if so, what will be done with the money? Should the City Council manage this agency as they did when it was the CRA? We believe they should because the City is the liable party for the long-term debt, which was delegated to the Successor Agency. These issues affect the voters of Sierra Madre directly and hits us in the pocket book. The old saying is "Throw the Bums Out", and certainly applies in this case. We urge you to be sure and vote and think about what is best for the "People of Sierra Madre." Sierra Madre Watchman

Sierra Madre Water expensive… and undrinkable resident says Dear Editor: I wish your paper would do an article on horrible and unsafe water that Sierra Madre is now providing to its residents. The water is rusty covered and foams and has a metallic smell, so that it cannot be used for drinking water. When I have consumed it, I have end up with stomach pains. I have complained about this several times and had two flushes of my sys-

tem, only to have the problem return the next day. I have talked to the plumber about these issues and they have told me that everyone in Sierra Madre is having the same problem. Today I left a jar with water from my kitchen sink with the staff at City Hall. Another person overheard my complaint and she said that her water also was disgusting. The staff member with whom I left the jar acknowl-

edged she too had the problem and was using Brita to filter. The Director of Public Works was too busy to talk to me but I have been promised a phone call. There is something wrong with this picture. We have to pay exorbitantly higher prices for water, and we can’t even drink it; we have to buy bottled water or filtering systems. Cynthia E. Gitt Sierra Madre

Dear Editor: I have been a resident of Temple City for over 60 years. I raised my children here. I have always been proud to say “I live in Mayberry, USA." When I was in Temple City High School we also referred to our city as ‘Peyton Place. Having been involved in numerous civic organizations including council meetings and anything related to civic affairs, I realize our demographics have changed but that has nothing to do

with the drastic changes in the past couple of years with the present city council and the ex-city manager who destroyed cities he previously managed in addition to our own. Several years ago, my wife and I attended meetings for the improvement of Rosemead Blvd ( which ironically, just held a grand re-opening ) bearing no resemblance to the original plans. What happened, how much did it cost the taxpayer? Good questions.

I tried to contact a Mr. Erickson who was in charge of the project at that time but found out he no longer worked there (at the city). This $20 million project was already paid for by 6 grants…however, apparently these plans were thrown away. Bikes lanes on Rosemead Blvd., come on? A great place to get injured or killed! More to come from me on Temple City’s mess. Henry Higginbottom Temple City

Making a difference, one pet at a time... It takes someone who cares

Bankruptcy

As part of our continuing desire to focus on those in our community who care for unwanted animals, we are highlighting here the work that animal rescue organizations and individuals do in helping homeless pets find homes.

It takes a chance

- Free Consulation - Stop Credit Card Call & Foreclosure

by Darlene Papa Lifelineforpets.org Letʼs clear up some misinformation and fear about cats who are FIV+ (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus-the beginning stage of kitty AIDS virus), as there is a growing number of these cats taken to pounds to be unnecessarily euthanized. Even the FIVonly shelters are overloaded. It is time to give cats with this disease a chance to live normal lives in a loving home. Being FIV+ only means that the cat has been infected by the virus, likely through saliva from being bitten if the cat has been fighting, or kittens born to an infected mother. The AIDS part is the terminal stage of the disease, which may not appear for many years, if at all. Therefore, an FIV cat can likely live as long as any other cat, if the owner follows some simple steps: 1. Keep the cat indoors, so as not to encourage interaction with an outdoor cat who may pick a fight, bite or get bitten. Other cats in the home should not be fighters. 2. Feed the FIV cat from a separate bowl, as saliva can have large amounts of virus. 3. See the vet if kitty seems ill, as a secondary infection is not good for the virus. 4. The virus will NOT affect humans or other spe-

cies.

5. If the FIV cat is feral, experts agree that the best recourse is to neuter and release back into the colony, unless a shelter for feral FIV cats can be found. Therefore, keeping an FIV+ kitty is not hard, and FIV should NOT be considered a death sentence. Lifeline For Pets and other rescues have had much difficulty rehoming an FIV cat due to peopleʼs misunderstandings and fear. An FIV cat can be just as loving and friendly as any other adoptable pet, as these examples show: One cuddler looking for a home is “Cheeks.” Cheeks is a unique Russian Blue/Tuxedo/ British Shorthair. Born in 2008, he loves petting, kittens, and children. He is hale and healthy. He has been waiting a very long time to have a real home. A shy boy who took forever to rehome was “Tucker.” A handsome tuxedo, he was a stray who had been picked on by outdoor cats. He took refuge in the yard of a caring young couple who could not financially keep him. Yet, they had him neutered, vaccinated, fed, and sheltered. He was skittish with no self-confidence at first, but became very trust-

“National Title Track Day” vinyl event in Pasadena on Friday Three veterans of the Los Angeles music scene are hosting a vinyl record event at a Pasadena pub on May 23 to celebrate National Title Track Day. A title track is a song whose title is the same as the album on which it appears (e.g., “Let It Be,” “Born To Run”). Title Track Day gives record stores, bars, festivals, and homes throughout the nation the opportunity to celebrate the power and influence of these songs, typically by gathering music fans together to share, revel in, and argue about their favorite title tracks. “Title Track Day comes right on the heels of Record Store Day last month and right during this massive vinyl resurgence across the nation,” said Russ Wiener, co-founder of The Title Trackers, a musical parody project that pays homage to and lovingly spoofs bands like The Rolling Stones, U2, and Bruce Springsteen. “We’re out to make sure that title tracks assume their rightful place in this vinyl rock renaissance.”

At the event in Pasadena, The Title Trackers will not only be spinning famous title tracks but also airing several so-called “Lost Title Tracks” that they have created. While many famous albums have a title track, many do not. The Title Trackers are filling that void by creating satirical title tracks for famous albums that do not have one, such as Exile on Main Street, The Joshua Tree, Who’s Next, Morrison Hotel, and many others. “There’s something prejudicial about Title Track Day because it excludes albums without a title track,” said David Tokaji, co-founder of The Title Trackers. “We’re doing our part to create a more diverse, equal opportunity Title Track Day by writing and recording the title tracks that famous bands didn’t get around to.” The Title Trackers also invite attendees to bring their own vinyl albums and CD’s to be played at the May 23 event – with one catch. “Just be sure the al-

bum you bring has a title track,” says project co-founder Andy Hill. “One day we may live in a world where no album is title trackless, but until then we should all adhere to the protocols that Title Track Day dictates.” What: “National Title Track Day” Celebration. The Title Trackers will be spinning title tracks on vinyl, along with satiric Lost Title Tracks of their own

“The Gondoliers” brings high-spirited G&S musical romp to Sierra Madre Playhouse If it’s a Gilbert and Sullivan comic operetta, it’s bound to offer an evening of rapid-fire lyrics and zesty tunes! And Sierra Madre Playhouse is where you’ll find it, with its fresh presentation of “The Gondoliers.” Predictably, the plot is woven through with mistaken identities, ill-fated romances, and political intrigue. While yet a baby, the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Plaza-Toro was wed to the king’s baby son, as sometimes happened in days of yore. Now grown, Casilda (Kara Masek) receives this devastating news from her parents. Devastating—because she and Luiz, the family’s attendant (John King) are already in love. But who is the groom and heir? With a contrived switch of two baby boys, both raised in the same family, it’s either Marco or Giuseppe Palmieri, the Gondoliers. Not even they know which one is to inherit the throne from the recently deceased king! Young people eagerly await the arrival of the handsome Gondoliers, for they will select two ladies to wed. In a blindfolded romp, Marco (Nicholas Mongiardo-

Cooper) and Giuseppe (Dan ‘DW’ McCann) choose and marry their brides. As Tessa, Jenna Augen is a flirty vixen. Exotic Gianetta is played by November Christine. But alas! Just as the newlyweds are about to set off on their honeymoons, they learn that one man is a bigamist—already wed to Casilda when both were babies! But which man? That’s the basic conundrum of the plot. The fun is in watching the plot thicken, then finally untangle itself. And, in enjoying the talents of the fine cast assembled by Alison Eliel-Kalmus, a Playhouse veteran who adapted and directs the play. Kudos to Alison for re-envisioning “The Gondoliers” as a more contemporary piece, and a play-within-a-play. She has set it in England in 1953, coinciding with the coronation of Queen Elizabeth. Inevitably, staccato lyrics are the hallmark of Gilbert and Sullivan, and they move faster than the ear. Singing such delightful ditties as “When a merry maiden marries” or “O rapture when alone together,” the vocalists and chorus are a nice array

His Duchess, Joy Weiser, attempts to keep him in check. Kenn Schmidt is the Grand Inquisitor who enforces the rules but has his frisky side, too. He banishes the wives until the rightful heir is determined, thereby depriving one lady (which?) of her queenly throne. In some performances, John Szura plays the Grand Inquistor. Similarly, Craig McEldowney alternately portrays Marco. Watch for playful comedic gestures throughout—they aisles among the audience. are as much fun as the main The actors’ hodgepodge of action.

New Firefighters join Pasadena’s world class dept. 10.

And then there were

The Pasadena Fire Department graduated and pinned 10 new firefighters in a ceremony on May 15 at Ambassador Auditorium. The 10 graduates – nine men and one woman – started out from a group of more than 4,000 applicants who applied for the job last summer and initially started taking written tests. Mike Maas, Battalion Chief, Training Division for the Department, said while it has been difficult for the recruits up until this point it still gets harder from here. “For them it’s a lifechanging event,” Maas said of graduating the fire academy. “It’s the end of their (training), but they start a probationary period at which time they serve in a probationary capacity. They ultimately could be terminated if they do not meet the minimum standards. It’s very stressful for them. Even though they graduated the recruit academy they still have a tough road ahead of them.” Thirty-year-old Shana Welch was the lone female to graduate. Her father Corey Welch came all the way from Pennsylvania for the graduation and said becoming a firefighter is a “dream of hers.” “We’re very proud, extremely,” Corey Welch said. “She worked very

hard, probably harder than she’s worked at anything else. I think she finally found her niche.” Lisa Derderian, public information officer for the department, said getting from 4,000 applicants to 10 graduates takes time and is very exhausting. “It’s a very extensive process and this is probably one of the most sought-after jobs in the world,” Derderian said. “Everybody wants to be a firefighter. It’s very stressful, but there’s a whole written process, testing, orals, several panels interview you, there’s psychological, medical. There’s a huge process and we pride ourselves on being a world-class city. We really want to pick the best of the best.” Derderian said the department is starting once again to be “very young” after graying for some time. “A great percentage

DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint in San Gabriel The San Gabriel Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint on Friday, May 23, 2014, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 7:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven program in reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving alcohol drop by an

average of 20 percent when well-publicized checkpoints are conducted frequently. Officers will be contacting drivers passing through the checkpoint for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment. Officers will also check drivers for proper licensing and will strive to delay motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drugimpaired driving. Drivers

caught driving impaired can expect jail, license suspension, and insurance increases, as well as fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2012, more than 10,000 people died in alcohol-impaired crashes – that accounts for one every 51 minutes. Over 800 of those died on California roadways.

Smart Women Smart Money

By Emmy Hernandez Certified Financial Planner® Practitioner Attorney at Law Planning for the future seems to be in the air. Perhaps the recent tax season has started folks thinking about protecting their family’s legacy. I’ve received several inquiries of late regarding estate planning – the advantages of living trusts in particular. Allow me to share some estate planning basics: A living trust is a legal document that is separate from a will. With a living trust, your assets are put into the trust, administered for your benefit during your lifetime, and then transferred to your beneficiaries when you pass. Most people name themselves as the trustees in charge of managing their trust's assets. This way, even though your as-

sets have been put into the trust, you can remain in control of your property during your lifetime. A living trust can be the most important part of your estate plan. A living trust agreement: • Gives the trustee the legal right to manage and control the assets held in your trust. • Instructs the trustee to manage the trust's assets for your benefit during your lifetime. • Names the beneficiaries who are to receive your trust's assets when you die. • Gives guidance and certain powers and authority to the trustee to manage and distribute your trust's assets. If you are the trustee of your own trust and you become incapacitated, your chosen successor trustee would manage the trust's assets for you. However, if your assets were not in a living trust, there could be dispute over who manages your property. Without a living trust, your estate could be subject to probate. Probate is a court-supervised process for transferring assets to beneficiaries. A petition would be filed with the court, notices given and a hearing would be held. Probate can take more time to complete than dis-

tribution through a living trust. Additionally, assets tied up in probate may not be as readily accessible to the beneficiaries as those held in a living trust. The cost of probate is often greater than the cost of managing and distributing comparable assets held in a living trust. Living trusts aren’t a clear benefit to everyone. Young married couples without significant assets and without children may not benefit from having a living trust. Older couples with significant assets and specific wishes for their disbursement may benefit more from living trusts. I will hold a special workshop on Saturday May 31st to offer more in depth education on estate planning and living trusts. This is a free event open to the public. I hope you’ll join me at 10 am in the Fireside Room at the San Marino Center - located at 1800 Huntington Drive in San Marino. Please call my office at 626-943-8833 to reserve your seats.

Sierra Madre Civic Club installs officers Lifeline For Pets Cat of the Week: "Cheeks"

-Courtesy Photo

On May 15, Kari Janzen and Susan Gallagher, hostesses for the evening, welcomed guests to the Monrovian Restaurant for the installation of officers to the 2014-15 board of the Sierra Madre Civic Club. Following a delicious buffet dinner, installing officer Susan Clifton observed that incoming president Jean Coleman had been a Girl Scout leader and was now beginning her second term as President of Civic Club. Susan noted the similarities between the goals of the scouts and those of Civic Club and swore in the new officers using a modified version of the

Girl Scout pledge. The officers of the 2014-15 Civic Club board are Jean Coleman, President, Karma Bell, Dean of Chairs, Sue Quinn, Ways and Means, Darlene Traxler and Geri Wright, Membership, Prudence Levine, Recording Secretary, Alice Clark and Nan Carlton, Corresponding Secretaries, Janet Emery, Treasurer, and Jane Zamanzadeh, Parliamentarian. President Coleman reviewed the past year noting all the community activities that Civic Club members support financially and with volunteer hours: Fourth of July Games in

the Park, Concert in the Park, Halloween Window Painting, Wistaria Festival, Huck Finn Day, and Mount Wilson Trail Race. In addition, Club was able to give a total of $4,500 in scholarship money to six local seniors and $11,500 to community organizations that had requested the money for special projects. President Coleman ended the evening by sharing her vision for the 2014-15 Club year. The Sierra Madre Civic Club is a civic and philanthropic organization that meets the second Thursday of every month at 7:30PM in Hart Park House.

This means he must be indoor only, in a monitored situation where there is no risk of a cat fight, as FIV is contagious to other cats if bitten. It is NOT contagious to humans or other animals, and we will provide you with education and advice if needed. (See the article in this newspaper titled, "It

Takes A Chance," for more information on FIV.) Otherwise, CHEEKS is healthy and strong. He even comes when called! Please consider adopting an FIV kitty, as they are often passed over, spend all of their lives in a cage, or euthanized. FIV+ cats can, and deserve to, live long, treasured lives!

Police and Fire personnel honored May 15 for their selfless work By Terry Miller Each year, America sets aside a week to salute the men and women who do the difficult, dangerous, and often thankless work of safeguarding our communities. Our Nation's peace officers embody the very idea of citizenship -- that along with our rights come responsibilities, both to ourselves and to others. In Pasadena as in thousands of cities around the US, May 15 was recognized as a day we pause to thank our men and women in uniform. During Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week, we celebrate those who protect and serve us every minute of every day, and we honor the courageous officers who devoted themselves so fully to others that in the process they laid down their lives. As we mourn the fallen, let us also remember how they lived. With unflinching commitment, they defended our schools and businesses. They guarded prisons; patrolled borders; and kept us safe at home, on the road, and as we went about our lives. To their families,

we owe an unpayable debt. And to the men and women who carry their mission forward, we owe our unyielding support. Our Nation has an obligation to ensure that as police officers face untold risks in the line of duty, we are doing whatever we can

to protect them. This means providing all necessary resources so they can get the job done, hiring new officers where they are needed most, and investing in training to prepare those on the front lines for potentially deadly situations. It also means making reforms to curb senseless

epidemics of violence that threaten law enforcement officers and haunt the neighborhoods they serve. Just as police officers never let down their guard, we must never let slide our gratitude. We should extend our thanks not only in times of tragedy, but for every trag-

edy averted -- every accident avoided because a patrol officer took a drunk driver off the streets, every child made safer because a criminal was brought to justice, every life saved because police officers raced to the scene. In other words, we must show our gratitude every day.

By a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962, as amended (76 Stat. 676), and by Public Law 103-322, as amended (36 U.S.C. 136137), the President has been authorized and requested to designate May 15 of each year as "Peace Officers Memorial Day".

In addition, Bargain Box Assistant Chairman, Anne Pavlik along with her co-chair Suzanne Tauer encouraged members to sign up to volunteer their time at the Bargain Box Thrift Shop at 64 E. Live Oak in Arcadia. Laurie Morton expressed her gratitude for being a member of such a caring organization. Doris McElwee a founding member in attendance reminded us that our auxiliary was founded in 1980. The purpose of Las Alas is to support chapter philanthropic programs and activities. The auxiliary gives woman that work during the day an opportunity to serve their community since our meetings are held at night. Former chairmen in attendance were Laurie Wagoner, Debbie Anderson, Eleanor Powell, Suzanne Tauer, Pat Baderian, Nancy Keathly, and Noreen McLennan. Guests included outgoing ALA president Keppie Sul-

Chairman Suzette Williams gave her year end report and thanked outgoing board members for their service and for “stepping into action” when needed. Next on the agenda to install the new governing board were members Glenn Duppenthaler and Pauline Farmer. Incorporating Suzette’s new theme each new board member was compared to a precious gem. In addition to the opportunity to serve on our governing body those installed were presented with a gift of appreciation. Suzette was excited and surprised to receive her spar-

kly Minnie Mouse ears! After signing up for another year as Chairman, Suzette was asked, “What are you going to do next?” She replied, “I’m going to Disneyland!” Assistance League’s charitable programs touch the lives of children, families and seniors. Funding for these programs is provided by proceeds from our thrift store sales, donations and grants. These programs rely on the involvement of more than 340 hands on, unpaid volunteer members.

TCHS Senior excels in physics competitions Temple City High School Senior, Frank (ChihYuan) Chiu, is a Gold Medal Semifinalist in the United States Physics Team competition. Frank placed in the top 1% of over 4,000 students who participated in the national competition. First round students qualified for the Semifinal round by placing in the top 10% (roughly top 400) with their performance on a 75 minute multiple choice exam. These top 400 students, known as semi-finalists, then take a second free response exam that lasts three hours. Semifinalists were awarded a Gold Medal, Silver Medal, Bronze Medal, Honorable Mention or Participant title based on their performance on this second exam.

Frank also recently competed in the 2014 Physics Bowl, where he placed 1st in Southern California (division 12) for second year Physics students. (He placed 4th internationally last year in the first year student category.) This 45 question multiple choice exam was taken by more than 4500 students. The average score for second year students was 15.7 out of 40 and Frank earned 31 out of 40. Some exam questions are based on topics and concepts covered in a typical high school Physics course but others are designed to test student knowledge limits so it’s very rare for anyone to earn a perfect score. http://www3.delta.edu/ michaelfaleski/physicsbowl/ Temple City High

5th annual Health and Wellness Fair in San Gabriel draws hundreds By SHEL SEGAL Dozens of older adults came out in force on May 15 as the San Gabriel Parks and Recreation Department helped host the fifth annual Health and Wellness Fair in Grapevine Arbor Park of the Adult Recreation Center. Rebecca Perez, director of parks and recreation, said participants of the fair could gather free information on health and wellness services available throughout the San Gabriel Valley. “We are having a health and wellness fair for our older adult population,” she said. “It’s important to provide a variety of sources for older adults – or any residents – to gain awareness about health and wellness and safety and

security.” Perez added the fair featured a plethora of organizations that could help you better manage your health situation. “We have a variety of services, including blood pressure checks, glucose testing, scoliosis screenings and health care service providers,” she said. “The (San Gabriel Police Department) is out with safety tips and information. And we have a variety of information from other organizations.” She also said the fair was for people of all ages who wanted to gather information, not just exclusively for older adults. “It’s important for ev-

erybody,” Perez said. “It’s important for our residents who aren’t otherwise able to access it in one location. They can come here and get all the information they need about their health.” Other activities take place year-round at the Adult Recreation Center, including being able to participate in activities, such as sewing groups and book groups, said James Lara, a recreation coordinator.

California median home price reaches highest level since December 2007 Showing true signs of improvement, California’s housing market continued to perform better than expected in April with both the median home price and home sales increasing month to month, the Arcadia Association Of Realtors® (A.A.R.) said today. However, decreased home affordability remains a challenge for buyers in many areas of the state. Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 394,070 units in April. This is according to information collected from the California Association of Realtors® (C.A.R.) from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide. April marked the sixth consecutive month that sales were below the 400,000 level and the ninth straight decline on a year-over-year basis. Sales in April increased 7.4 percent from a revised 367,020 in March but were down 7 percent from a revised 423,690 in April 2013. The statewide sales figure represents what would be the total number of homes sold during 2014 if sales maintained the April pace throughout the year. It is adjusted to account for seasonal factors that typically influence home sales. “With home prices increasing by double-digits in 2013, many investors have decided to leave the market which is adversely affecting home sales as a whole,” said 2014 A.A.R. President Mike Vachani. “While the num-

ber of homes sold continued to decline from a year ago, the better-than normal surge in sales activities in April is encouraging and could be an indication that we will see further improvement in the housing market in the next few months.” The statewide median price of an existing, singlefamily detached home rose 3.2 percent to $449,360 in April compared with March, reaching its highest level since December 2007. April’s price was 11.6 percent higher than the revised $402,830 recorded in April 2013, marking the second straight month that the median price increased both month to month and year to year. The statewide median home price has increased year over year for the previous 26 months. The median sales price is the point at which half of homes sold for more and half sold for less; it is influenced by the types of homes selling as well as a general change in values. “Looking forward, it is likely that we will see a more moderate level of price increase throughout the rest of the year, and further improvements in sales in the spring home buying season,” said A.A.R. CEO Andrew Cooper. “Increasing home prices, relatively higher interest rates, and tight lending standards, however, will continue to present challenges to home buyers who are facing affordability issues. Primary home buyers may no longer have to compete with investors in 2014, but instead they need to worry about

increased borrowing costs.” Other key facts from C.A.R.’s April 2014 resale housing report include: • Housing inventory remained tight in April, with the supply of existing, single-family detached homes for sale slipping last month to 3.5 months, down from March’s Unsold Inventory Index of 4 months, but up from 2.8 months in April 2013. The index indicates the number of months needed to sell the supply of homes on the market at the current sales rate. A six- to seven-month supply is considered typical in a normal market. • The median number of days it took to sell a singlefamily home fell to 33.8 days in April, down from 35 days in March but up from 27.9 days in April 2013. • Mortgage rates remained flat in April, with the 30-year, fixed-mortgage interest rate averaging 4.34 percent, the same rate recorded in March, but up from 3.45 percent in April 2013, according to Freddie Mac. Adjustable-mortgage interest rates in April averaged 2.44 percent, down from 2.48 in March and down from 2.63 percent in April 2013. Representing local Realtors® in the San Gabriel Valley for 90 years, the Arcadia Association Of Realtors® (www.TheAAR. com) is one of the oldest trade organizations in CA. The AAR is dedicated to the advancement of professionalism in real estate and is an advocate for private property rights. A.A.R. is headquartered in Arcadia.

Mia Hepner of Pasadena High makes a big splash By SHEL SEGAL Completing a terrific season in the pool for the Pasadena High swim team is junior Mia Hepner. A competitive swimmer since she was a child, Hepner just seems to be getting better. “I’ve been swimming competitively since I was 8. I’m 17 now,” Hepner said. “My brother swam when I was younger and then my parents told me that I should. I started and I’ve loved it ever since I started.” Hepner said just has been swimming even earlier than age 8. “I first got in the water when I was 2 and I did small, little races when I was 4,” she said. “I have a few little blue ribbons from them.” She added it has been very therapeutic for her. “It keeps my mind off of stressful things and I’ve always just loved it,” Hepner said. “I swim here after school every day, at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center.” Hepner also said she trains in the pool six days a week with almost no time off during the year.

“We have two weeks off a summer,” she said. “And we have Christmas Day. And New Year’s Day.” So, why work so hard? Hepner explained. “I love it,” she said. “It has something I’ve always done. I’m motivated. It gives me something to look forward to. It really helps me with discipline. It keeps me focused.” Hepner said she might want to go to college out-ofstate and there is a chance she might want to study to become a teacher. “I really like small liberal arts colleges on the East Coast,” she said. “And I also like the Claremont Colleges. But I’m not sure what I want to study yet. I like helping kids and working with kids. And I like special education.” So, how’s this season been going for her? “It’s been going really good,” she said. “I made it to (Pacific League postseason competition). I got first in the 500 for league and second in my 250. And I made it

to CIF (Southern Section postseason competition.” Pasadena swimming coach Jennie Jacobsen-Huse had words of praise for Hepner. “She’s exceptional,” she said of Hepner. “She’s an elite swimmer and an excellent student-athlete. The last three years, even the most difficult year, she’s a 4.0 GPA. She’s been second before and this year it was really nice to have her win the league championship. That was really nice.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com.

sing along and various guests would appear to entertain the residents… Even the Queen of England visited the British Home in the 1980’s, so you know you’re in good company. Far and away the most fun experience, aside from talking with the wonderful residents and staff at The British Home is the annual June Faire which is slated for next weekend, June 7. However, before we get into this one should understand a little of the home’s history as I like to point out to my American cousins…take a look at America… take a good look. There are lots of British ex-pats here …”we’re slowly regaining the colonies,” I often say. But I digress: The British Home’s history dates back to 1920. In 1920 The British Home was founded by the Daughters of the British Empire and other philanthropic organizations as a not-for-profit retirement home for elderly British immigrants residing in the United States. The British Home later opened its doors to welcome older adults of all nationalities, and today enjoys a diverse mix of residents from many different backgrounds in many cities across the United States. The British Home in California, Ltd. is a very unique life care facility. It was formally opened in 1931 by a group of British women affiliated with The Daughters of the British Empire (D.B.E.) in the Western District. Their vision of a place where elderly people could be cared for in a warm and kind environment continues to this day. On September 22, 1931, Sir John Adams, Consul General of Great Britain, formally opened the British Home. Mrs. Florence Shaefer, of Long Beach, donated the money for the second resident cottage. Even though we are divided by a common language, the British mother tongue will be well represented at the faire and if you need a translator… Bob’s your Uncle. There’s always someone willing to tell you what a Haggis is and what a tea cozy actually does! Actually the British Home hopes that you pop by and do a little more than ‘spend a penny” – (from the days when public WC’s in the UK cost a penny) and that you don’t get too knackered – (tired) walking around the gardens sampling the DBE’s wares. But Blimey – (pretty

good word to use when you are surprised) you won’t need your Brolly (umbrella) as the weather is always perfect for the June Faire. The something for everyone. Fancy a nice pickled-onion, or how about a sausage roll? Contrary to popular American opinion, English food is far from lousy and the beer most certainly is not served warm! The British Home residents meet regularly throughout the year to make craft items that are then offered for sale from their own booths at the Faire. Members of the DBE (Daughters of the British Empire), organized into individual Chapters from the Western States, sell items from their colorful and often whimsical booths to raise money to benefit of The Home. These booths are also judged for decorations and creativity. The residents look forward to the festive atmosphere of this day, meeting old friends and new, eating traditional British food and having a nice cuppa tea! English bangers are always a favorite as are the scones but only if you have some of the Devon Clotted Cream atop the mysterious sweet. The Faire will open with a formal Presentation of the Colors accompanied by a professional bagpiper, followed by the American and British national anthems. Colorful booths and

boutiques situated on the beautiful 2½ acre campus will offer arts and crafts, books, tools, collectibles, personal accessories and decorative items for sale. All proceeds are donated and help to support the British Home. Refreshments will feature Ploughman’s lunches, English bangers on a bun, homebaked breads and pastries, strawberries and ice cream, and children’s fare. An outdoor Victorian Tea Room will be open for faire-goers to enjoy a nice “cuppa” and delicious English sweets and savories. A Children’s Area on the south lawn will feature a bouncy house and face-painting by the Home’s resident artist. Live entertainment will include adults and youngsters performing traditional Morris, Scottish and Irish dances. A strolling British Bobby and Beefeater will be on the grounds to keep the peace. The British Home is located in a residential area, with parking along Ramona and Manzanita Avenues, as well as on the side streets. For more information, please call (626) 355-7240 or visit their website: www.britishhome-ca. us. The 2014 June Faire will be held at the British Home in California, 647 Manzanita Avenue, Sierra Madre, on Saturday, June 7, from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm. Admission is always free.

Burglar ransacks 'Paint n Play' in Monrovia

Local artists' one of a kind works stolen Summer Speaker Series

MAY “Virtual Dementia Tour”

-Photo by Stephen Coleman

Lisa Barrios, owner of Paint n Play was stunned to find her business torn through early last Sunday by an individual. The suspect stole jewelry, fine art and photography from a recent exhibition of California Photographers’ work and destroyed years of paperwork related to the business. The suspect, wearing a backwards baseball cap, allegedly tore through the business grabbing items of value and destroying much of the infrastructure

that makes Paint n Play such a fun place for kids and adults alike. Barrios particularly feels sorry for the artists who got hit hard including Rick Kess, Stephen Coleman and others who contributed their talents for all to enjoy in Monrovia. In addition to the art, thousands of dollars worth of supplies and even paper towels were taken. “The guy took everything of value…” Barrios said. The curator of a recent

exhibit, KABC cameraman Stephen Coleman lost a beautiful framed image of Griffith Park Observatory and the LA that was hanging proudly in the front of the store. Barrios is currently taking inventory of her losses and a full investigation is ongoing with Monrovia PD. If you have any information about this suspect please call the Monrovia police immediately at (626) 256-8000 ask for Detective Lopez.

Two men convicted in Colby Fire face 6.5 years in prison

Everything is big in Texas… especially offers for Sriracha

By SHEL SEGAL

As two men have been convicted for inadvertently starting the Jan. 16 Colby Fire in the mountains north of Glendora that charred 1,952 acres, injured six people and destroyed five homes, the trial of a third man in the case started this week in Los Angeles, according to a published report. Jonathan Jarrell, 23, and a transient is accused of starting “two illegal campfires while camping overnight along the Colby Trail. Embers and burning paper from the second campfire set nearby dry grass and brush on fire,” according to that report. Five firefighters and

one civilian suffered “minor injuries” in the fire as five homes and 10 outbuildings were destroyed, while seven homes and one other structure were damaged, according to that report. Jarrell has been charged with “setting fire to timber, grass and underbrush in the Angeles National Forest by building a campfire; violating a fire restriction order by using a fire outside a recreation site in the forest; causing timber, trees, brush and grass to burn in the forest without a permit; and causing and failing to maintain control a fire that damaged the national forest system,” according to that

report. Convicted on those four counts were Clifford Eugene Henry, 22, of Glendora and 21-year-old transient Steven Robert Aguirre. Sentencing is set to take place on Aug. 4 in a Los Angeles federal court with the two facing a maximum of six and a half years in prison, according to that report. The prosecution has also set it will seek restitution, and while the amount hasn’t been set yet it is believed to me in the millions, according to that report.

Singing “The Stars at Night are Big and Bright,” officials from the state of Texas recently toured the Sriracha plant in Irwindale with hopes of luring the sauce maker to the Lone Star State, according to a published report. Tran also recently said he was planning on staying at the $40 million, 650,000-square-foot location on Azusa Canyon Road. However, while he said was going to move, he is now saying he is going to build a second plant – possibly in Texas as state officials have recently visiting him at his Irwindale plant, according to that report. All this comes in the wake last month of the city of Irwindale declaring Tran’s company, Huy Fong Foods, a public nuisance “because residents complained about harsh odors emanating from the plant,” according to that report. In response to the city’s actions, Tran then invited local and out-of-state officials to come by the factory and have a first-hand look, according to that report. Texas officials are also apparently hoping Tran follows in Toyota’s footsteps,

which has made public a plan to ship approximately 3,000 jobs from its Torrance headquarters to the Lone Star State, according to that report. And Texas officials also pitched their state as a “business-friendly climate” that will help a business grow as the state has low taxes and low regulations, according to that report. The stumbling block for Tran is basic: how to get the company’s specialized jalapeño variety to grow in Texas. That pepper is then “crushed into the hot sauce,” according to that report. The chilies used in the sauce were imported from Mexico 25 years ago, according to that report, with the current hybrid plant now used being spicier than the original. Tran is also expected to have his farmers talk to agricultural experts in Texas before visiting the Lone Star State to look for a second site, according to that report. At the current rate, Tran said in that published report that he “will outgrow his Irwindale facility by 2017” and that he has been growing up to 20 percent each year for some time now.

As far as moving, Tran said he has only so far considered the state of Texas and he “has vowed he will not expand outside of the U.S.,” according to that report. And as a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has sided with the city of Irwindale, city officials are recommending a second delay, “voting on a resolution that would put Tran under a 90-day deadline to reduce the factory’s odors during the fall chili grinding season,” according to that report.

If you’re thinking that creating your own living trust is child’s play, think again. By not having the right professional take care of it you might be costing your family thousands of dollars and giving some family members premature gray hairs. “It’s so easy, I’ll be done in one day … sometimes we hear this,” said Samuel B. Ledwitz, estate planning attorney and president of Bezaire, Ledwitz and Borncamp. “There can’t be much. Why is that lawyer going to be involved? I get people who try to do this themselves, and one lady on property tax issues cost herself about $8,000.” And if you have started it yourself, Ledwitz said it’s not too late to come in and have him take a look at your work. “I’m not one to tell you I told you so, but I am one to pick up the pieces and get your kids to the finish line,” he said.

So, what could possibly take so much work? Plenty, Ledwitz said. “You’re going to have outstanding bills,” said Ledwitz, who has an office in Pasadena. “You’re not going to die right on the end of the Visa bill date or the ending of the gas bill. It’s not like you’re going to pay all your bills and just die. You’re going to be in some billing process. There’s still going to be things that need to be wound up. There might be dividends checks coming in that need to be cashed. They’ll be made out to your name. Now that you’ve passed away how do they get negotiated? “There’s always unfinished business. No matter how attentive you are to this there will still be one or two.” And there’s one area you need to get right, if you live or die, and you can’t pre-plan it. That’s right, Ledwitz said. Taxes.

“The thing you really can’t do in advance is your income tax return,” Ledwitz said. “If you pass away, how did you already know what to submit to the IRS? You’re going to have some unfinished business.” Ledwitz said it’s in your best interest not to keep secret from other family members who folks like their lawyer and tax professional are. “The family’s that do the best are the ones who at least introduce the kids to their professional advisors,” he said. “At least the kid has a chance to know to go because in most cases the kid has no clue. What they need to find out what your sources of income are and what bills you have.” At Bezaire, Ledwitz and Borncamp you are encouraged to come in and have a free consultation regarding your living trust. For more information or to make an appointment, please call (310) 316-2400.

Two San Gabriel Valley High School students compete in annual speech scholarship contest Thursday

$69. 9

DH_Beacon_030320140-OL.indd 1

3/4/14 10:19 AM

The Pasadena Bar Association (PBA) has announced the two finalists of its 4th Annual Speech Scholarship Contest. The preliminary round, held in March, hosted approximately 87 high school students from Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley, who competed for a chance to move into the final round, where the first-place winner will take home a $5,000 scholarship. The final round will take place Thursday, May 22 during the PBA’s Law Day Luncheon. During this final round, the two finalists will be given seven minutes to present their speech to approximately 150 lawyers and dignitaries, including honorary guest Joyce Kenard, former Associate Justice of the California Supreme Court. Judging will occur during lunch, with the winner announcement shortly after. Abel DeCastro (17), a senior, and Kelsea Jeon (16), a sophomore, from Arcadia High School are the two finalists who will compete, head-to-head, for a chance to win a $5,000 scholarship, pre-

sented by the Pasadena Bar Association. Second place winner will receive a $2,000 scholarship. The top 30 finalists will also have the opportunity to interview with local participating law firms for internships. Abel DeCastro took second place during the 2013 PBA Speech Scholarship contest. “Returning from competing as a finalist last year, Abel really exuded confidence and showed us his improved ability during the first round,” said Don Schweitzer, PBA Family Law section chair and founder & partner of the Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer. “What’s interesting about Kelsea is she is our youngest finalist in the history of the speech contest. Sixteen years old and only a sophomore, her speech was well crafted and powerful as if she were a college graduate. These two young powerhouses delivered outstanding, professional performances, while still being able to interject humor into their speeches—that’s a skill not many adult speakers have conquered, so we were really impressed.”

“The PBA Speech Scholarship Contest has grown in popularity over the years to the extent that it’s become an incentive for our local schools to create a speech program for their students,” said Don. “Temple City High School just created a speech program, and one of their speakers broke into the top 30, and they don’t even have the experience competing in the regional high school speech and debate tournaments.” Don continued, “What makes this year’s competition all the more rewarding is the internship component we’ve added as a benefit to the competitors. The finalists will have an opportunity to intern with one of the PBA’s member law firms, and continue to build their skills through mentor programs. In fact, the student I spoke of from Temple City High School has already contacted our firm seeking an opportunity. These kids are extremely bright, smart, witty and motivated, and the PBA Speech Scholarship competition was developed as a platform for these students to showcase their talents.”

Founded in 1984, The Huntington Collection is a unique resale shop of Huntington Memorial Hospital that sells merchandise through consignment and qualified donations. All Huntington Collection proceeds benefit Huntington Hospital Senior Care Network, a nationally recognized program that helps older and disabled adults and their families remain healthy and independent. “The Huntington Collection is a wonderful way for people to make a meaningful difference in the community while acquiring one-of-a-kind merchandise at really great prices,” says Betty MacInnes, founder of the Huntington Collection who remains a vital part of its operation. “Others can make a difference by donating items that will turn into dollars and support the great work of Senior Care Network.” The dollars of which MacInnes speaks are not insignificant. Earlier this year the Huntington Collection presented Huntington Hospital CEO Steve Ralph with a check in the amount of $230,000. It was the latest in a series of annual donations, which over the past three decades has surpassed $8 million. The Huntington Collection receives an extensive array of donated merchandise including clothing, china, crystal, jewelry, books, linens, kitchenware, toys, collectibles and decorative pieces. All are accepted and inspected under the trained eyes of volunteers and staff and then put out for sale if their condition is acceptable. In addition, The Huntington Collection accepts consignment items worth $250 or more after they have been appraised by qualified Huntington Collection appraisers. New merchandise

is received every day. “We try to make it easy for donors by offering an all-inclusive service for the appraisal, removal and sale of personal property,” says MacInnes. “A Huntington Collection appraiser meets with the donor; assesses that a Price and Pack is needed; and arranges for the pricing, packing and removal of all items to The Huntington Collection where they will be sold as consignment or donation. This service has proven to be ideal for older adults moving to a retirement or convalescent home.” The Huntington Collection also offers month-end sales, usually held on the last Thursday or Saturday of each month, except holidays, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The sale features half price on all regular clothing plus featured sales on boutique clothing, linens, artwork and books. “Bag Sales” are also held three to four times a year where for $10 customers can fill a grocery bag to the brim with regular clothing and accessories. In addition, the Annex section of The Huntington Collection regularly features half price on all donated items including furniture, sofas, dining sets, armoires and rugs. None of this would be possible without MacInnes who created the shop in 1984 with the goal of supporting the hospital’s recently formed Senior Care Network. The Collection did not have a permanent home at the time; but MacInnes recruited volunteers to help run the sale and solicited donations of highquality secondhand goods from the community, making the event a tremendous success. Soon after that initial sales event, and following The Huntington Collection’s move into a large space on Fair Oaks Avenue, MacInnes went to work filling the massive space with desirable items for purchase. In partnership with the Collection’s advisory committee — comprised of

professionals from the retail, advertising and marketing industries, along with Collection volunteers — she led the store through decades of expansion. MacInnes now serves as the Collection’s assistant manager; and Linda Stephens, who has worked alongside MacInnes for 25 years, has taken on the role of managing the store. “Betty is so focused on the Collection’s success; this place is her lifeblood,” Stephens says. “She has the kind of toughness that gets a lot done; and, at the same time, she remains wonderfully compassionate and patient.” The Huntington Collection is located at 766 South Fair Oaks Avenue. It is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., except Thursdays, when hours are from noon to 6 p.m. Further information may be obtained atwww.thehuntingtoncollection.com.

Parishioners from the San Gabriel Mission attended the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday to ask for more money for public healthcare. Father Bruce Wellems of the mission said despite the federal act that gives access to healthcare for everyone, some still can’t get it. “This was an action to ask for more money for the residually uninsured, that covers undocumented workers and others who don’t have access to healthcare,” Wellems said. He added while the county of Los Angeles gives funds to covers those people, there still are some problems. “We commended the supervisors for already giving $55 million,” Wellems said. “This is the only county in the entire United States that takes care of those who don’t qualify for healthcare. We’re the only county that does anything. They take money and give it to the clinics in the L.A. area. The problem is that it is unbalanced. They

said, ‘you don’t spend all of the $55 million, so why are you asking for more?’” But more money is still needed, Wellems said. “Because policy has changed, and now the money will follow the person to the clinic,” he said. “The fact is we asked for $150 million. It’s just a fraction, a little bit more to take care of 300,000 people instead of 106,000 people.” Wellems also said the ranks of the uninsured are still too great and that is unacceptable. “You recognize that in the L.A. area there are 380,000 people who are uninsured … in fact, there’s a million,” he said. “That’s how they interpret it and that’s how they want to be able to care for it. But they’re actually only caring for 106,000. That’s the joke of it all … People have died waiting.” He added the healthcare issue should hit home for everyone locally. “This is a big issue and

it’s big for San Gabriel Valley,” he said. “We don’t have enough places to serve the people. We’re excited to get our voice in there … If we have one sick person we’re all sick.” Helen Nelson, a San Gabriel resident, attended the meeting in downtown Los Angeles. She said more needs to be done to help those who are uninsured. “We had to get a message across and we have people who need help,” Nelson said. “I think it’s very important that we acknowledge that and be there to help them.” Damarys Perez, a Long Beach resident, agreed. “I just feel it is super important for all of us, any human being to have health coverage,” she said. “When it comes down to sickness and illness it doesn’t recognize any boundary.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com.

Arcadia Little League Minors Championship

CONGRATULATIONS! TO OUR WEEKLY WINNER

-Courtesy Photo

The Arcadia American Little League Minors Dodgers played more than their share of close games but none more exciting than Monday's 10-9 victory over the Cubs at a packed Windsor Field. The win gave the Dodgers a twogame sweep of the AALL Championship Tournament to go with their regular season crown. Monday, the Dodgers blew 5-2 and 8-7 leads against the determined Cubs, whom they had routed 14-1 in the first round. The Cubs scored a pair of unearned runs with two out in the top of the sixth to take a 9-8 lead. However, that lead was very short-lived as the Dodgers scored two runs in the bottom of the inning on

on a wild pitch and error for a walkoff win to truly remember. Nolan Anthony was the winning pitcher in relief, allowing no earned runs in three innings and three hits while striking out four. He helped his own cause with four RBI, including a booming inside-the-park three-run home run. Guy Gruppie, Jr. had long threerun triple and Actavius Dunston three hits for the Dodgers. Steven Chen had three hits for the Cubs. In the Dodger tournament opener, E. J. Davis struck 11 as the Dodgers overwhelmed the Cubs, 14-1, in four innings. Gruppie had a key two-run double in the first inning, and Brian Lu added a key

two run double. While the Dodgers had two players in Anthony and Gruppie hit nearly .700, exceed 30 hits and drive in almost 20, the Dodgers' pitching trio of Anthony, Gruppie and Davis was the strength of the game. Gruppie won five games including a complete game, 12-strikeout shutout of the Arcadia National Yankees and a 14-strikeout performance against the Sierra Madre Cubs. He saved a key victory for Anthony against a strong Santa Amita Red Sox team as well. Anthony was the starter of that signature game. Davis beat the Cubs late in the regular season then did it again in the tournament.

Pasadena Museum of History is proud to once again join the more than 2,000 museums across the nation offering free admission this summer to active duty military personnel and their families as part of the 2014 Blue Star Museums program. The offer runs from Memorial Day (May 26) through Labor Day (September 1) as a means of showing our appreciation for those who are serving this nation. Leadership support has been provided by MetLife Foundation through Blue Star Families. The program provides families an opportunity to enjoy the nation's cultural heritage and learn more about their new communities after a military move. This summer, Pasadena Museum of History presents the exhibition Crown City Jubilee. spotlighting the histories of eleven longstanding and beloved institutions, organizations, and businesses which have helped shape our City over

many decades. A special video installation inside the galleries also features more than 90 additional Pasadena-area organizations also celebrating significant anniversaries during 2014. “We are honored to welcome our military families this summer,” notes PMH Executive Director Jeannette O’Malley. “We are particularly delighted to be able to share with them an overview of the richly diverse and complex array of businesses and organizations that have shaped this City and will continue to do so in the future. So often military personnel find themselves far away from home; we hope Crown City Jubilee will evoke fond memories in those who call Pasadena their hometown, and make our visitors from elsewhere feel truly at home.” For further information and a complete listing of participating museums nationwide, please visit www.arts.gov/national/blue‐ star‐museums.

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 714-730-2727 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-13-608436-JP . 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. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder's sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right’s against the real property only.

a former licensed real estate salesperson. In January, 2005, Eddie Turner purchased a residential property on Altadena Drive in Altadena for $1.12 million. Mr. Turner borrowed $896,000 from Countrywide Home Loans to make the purchase. In August, 2005, Mr. Turner borrowed another $250,000 from Countrywide Home Loans and used the Altadena property as collateral. It is alleged that the employment, income and financial information, including a counterfeit bank statement, submitted by Mr. Turner to obtain the loans, were false. In March, 2007, Eddie Turner, with the assistance of Allen Shay, refinanced the Altadena property and obtained two new loans from Countrywide Home Loans, one for $1,000,000 and another for $218,000. The loans obtained in 2007 paid off the previous loans obtained in 2005. It is alleged that the employment, income and financial information, including a counterfeit bank statement, submitted by Mr. Turner and Mr. Shay to obtain the 2007 loans were false. Mr. Turner and Mr. Shay also misrepresented the source of a $29,916 down payment which was deposited into escrow to obtain the loans. In January, 2008, Eddie Turner stopped making his mortgage payments. That same year, Bank of America acquired Countrywide Home Loans and attempted to foreclose on the Altadena property. Mr. Turner was able to avoid foreclosure by transferring the Altadena property to a trust, filing bankruptcy, and applying for a loan modification. In 2012, when it appeared that foreclosure was imminent, it is alleged that Mr. Turner filed a false iden-

While investigating Mr. Turner’s identity theft claim, sheriff’s detectives learned that Mr. Turner had in fact applied for, and received, the 2007 loans. During the course of the investigation, detectives also uncovered the alleged fraudulent acts committed by Mr. Turner and Mr. Shay to obtain the loans. The total amount of the fraudulently obtained loans is $2,364,000. On May 20, 2014, Sheriff’s deputies arrested Mr. Turner at his home in Altadena, and Mr. Shay at his home in Pasadena. Both men are scheduled to be arraigned at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center, Department 30, on May 21, 2014. We asked William Boyer, PIO for city of Pasadena to comment on Shay’s arrest: We revied the following statement: “Regarding Mr. Shay, he has been a member of the Northwest Commission since July 26, 2011 and his term expires June 30, 2015. I believe this is his first appointment / term to the Northwest Commission. Appointed by District 4. I have no information and cannot confirm anything

that other news outlets have reported in terms of Mr. Shay’s connection to other council members, etc.. I can confirm that Mr. Shay has done some very limited work via The Arroyo Channel under Pasadena Media (Pasadena Community Access Corp.). He is NOT an employee of Pasadena Media or The Arroyo Channel. The Arroyo Channel is made up of a network of independent (volunteer/nonpaid) local producers who do their own shows for the public, cable access channel. To the best of my knowledge, he only recently began doing some videos there within the last six or seven months … there might be some of his video posted on social media via Pasadena Media and, at best, only a couple of things might have aired on the public access channel. In terms of other official comment, the City was only made aware of this situation yesterday when the Sheriff’s Dept. issued its news release. The City is still trying to gather more information, as appropriate, at this point in order to better assess the situation.” Anyone with questions or information may contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Fraud & Cyber Crimes Bureau, Detective Christopher Derry at (562)233-8204.
