Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) Altadena Station detectives arrested 34 yearold John Edward Maust, a local high school teacher, for kidnapping three juveniles after asking them for a ride. On Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 9:35 P.M., three 17 year-old juveniles were driving in the area of Ganesha Avenue and East Mariposa Street, Altadena, when they recognized John Edward Maust, one of their Please see page 13

By the time our noisy little car limped onto the farm in County Sligo, we were at the northernmost part of southern Ireland. I was getting a good idea of what cousin Hilary had meant when she said, "Your California wardrobe may not be quite warm enough in Ireland." Soon, I was warmed by a loaned woolen sweater, a down comforter, the peatburning cookstove and the family's loving, all-enfolding Irish hospitality. We were ten in all - - from Diana Pearl, the 70-year-old matriarch of the four generation family, to her 6-month-old great-grandson. They were aware of some of the many comforts I enjoyed in America and they were more than a little dismayed at what few they had to offer. I soon convinced them that, having happily spent my early years on a farm, I was

very content and at ease with this return to rural ways. I was even able to satisfy them that I didn't mind taking a sponge bath in the tin basin or walking across the backyard to the privy where the door didn't latch and the geese would sometimes come in with you. Not all visiting Americans were quite so accommodating. My first weekend there, we met a full-fledged Ugly American. Their neighbor's sister had returned from Buffalo, New York, bringing her American-born teenage daughter, Kathleen, for her first visit. Diana Pearl invited them all for tea on Sunday afternoon. "Darlin' Kathleen" came in with her nose in the air and it never went down. She declined the tea, stating, "I'm not drinking the water here. There is no way I'm going to drink water that comes from

a bucket." She spent the entire visit making it clear that there was nothing about Ireland she liked, including the people. She commented, "I come from New York where the people are sophisticated." I wanted to smack the snotty little twit. Diana Pearl, nearly at the end of her string too, quickly retorted, "Well, me cousin is from California where the people are famous." In spite of this Ugly American we made it through the tea. Her presence stilted the atmosphere and our senses felt a kind of coolness that could not be warmed, even by the peat fire. As Susie closed the door behind "Darlin' Kathleen" she turned and quipped, "Sure and ain't she be thinkin' her piss is punch." We all broke up with laughter and suddenly the warmth returned to our cozy little room.

D-17 baseball team more than up to the challenge Manager Ted Sutherland was warned that his newly formed D-17 11u baseball team might be taking on a bigger challenge than it could handle when it entered the prestigious annual 2014 La Canada Baseball Softball Association Summer Smash Tournament. After all, the squad of San Gabriel Valley boys was made up of players who had not only never practiced, let alone played together, but included on its roster players with limited experience beyond little league. As it turns out, D-17 was more than up to the challenge. In fact, it won four straight games during the past weekend, including a tense 3-2 victory Sunday afternoon over the La Crescenta Thunder, giving Sutherland and his team something nobody but he and his players thought possible when the tournament began: the Bronco Divison Championship trophy. David Mathias of Pasadena capped a brilliant personal and team pitching weekend with this third save (to go along with one win) as D-17 built a 3-0 lead an hung on for the victory. It took some great defense late in the game, including a game-ending double play turned by Mathias himself on a squeeze bunt pop up, to finish off the Thunder, and give D-17 four victories in four games over three days. Earlier in the day, D-17 eliminated Whittier, 4-1, when the unflappable Mathias finished on the mound for Arcadia's Eddie Jin, who struck out eight and allowed only three hits and one earned run

in a dominant starting performance on the mound. Arcadia's Julian Eskiridge had a key two-run triple to help Jin earn the victory and get D-17 into the final against the Thunder, whom D-17 had defeated Saturday in a quarterfinal game, 8-1, behind the combined pitching heroics of Eskridge and Mathias. In Sunday's final, Eskridge beat the Thunder for the second time in two days as D-17 took a 3-0 lead in the second inning. Andy Sutherland of San Marino got the first two runs home on a long double and then Michael Gruppie of Arcadia scored Sutherland with what turned out to be a key two-out single as D-17's offense was held in check the rest of the game. The Thunder got two in the fourth, and had the tying run at third in both the fifth and sixth innings but could not score. Mathias was brilliant despite being a little tired, reaching back for something extra to record three straight strikeouts when they were desperately needed. Over four days, he threw a remarkable 71% first-pitch strikes, setting up several

batters to try and deal with his sharp curveball or offspeed pitch. Overall in the tournament, D-17 pitchers struck out 32 batters, and walked only nine, while recording a team ERA of 1.83, to the delight of pitching Coach David Mathias. Pasadena's Eldridge Armstrong, Jr., lead all D-17 hitters with a .600 tournament batting average, with Jin right behind him at .556 and Eskridge and Arcadia's Matt McIntire at .500. As a team, D-17 batters fanned only seven times in 111 plate appearances, a truly amazing feat in such a competitive tournament setting and new baseball environment for several players. Sutherland led the team with five RBIs and hit a triple on Sunday that traveled more 220 feet on the fly at a spacious field. Estridge and Nick Gallo of Altadena had three RBIs, while Armstrong, Jin, Jack Duncan of Altadena, Ryan Rizzo of Arcadia and Mathias drove in two each. Will Meeks of Pasadena had a key RBI in D-17's first victory over the Thunder.

How would you feel if your favorite website loaded very slowly, or not at all, because your Internet service provider (ISP) disagrees with its content or wants you to use their favored website instead? Yes, you could switch providers, but most people in the US do not have a choice between more than one or two providers. And what if the other providers block another website that you like? The most famous case of an ISP favoring a certain website over another was revealed in 2007, when Comcast, the US’ largest ISP, had interfered with file sharing services offered on BitTorrent. Comcast clients reported difficulties, delays, or complete inability to up- and/or download from BitTorrent. The concept of Net Neutrality would prohibit actions like Comcast’s. We as Internet users would be able to use any website at the speed we pay for with whatever information we choose to read. ISPs would not be able to restrict (political) content that their representatives disagree with. Net Neutrality stands for an open Internet, one which protects and enables

our right of free speech. However, in January 2014, court ruled that ISPs can now legally discriminate against websites and applications. ISPs can delay or block content, favor certain websites and corporations, and charge Internet companies various fees. The freepress campaign Save the Internet provides a comparison: “Just as your phone company cannot decide who you could call and what you say on that call, your ISP should not be concerned with what content you view or post online.” The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reclassified broadband from “common carriers” or “telecommunications services” to “information services.” The court decided that due to this reclassification, the FCC lacks authority to enforce rules over network owners. Save the Internet informs that, ”freed from any legal restraints, ISPs can monitor everything you do and say online — and sell the information to the highest bidder. ISPs have something that companies like Facebook and Google don’t: direct control over

your connections to the Internet and the devices you use to connect to it.” Furthermore, the campaign states that AT&T, Verizon and other ISPs “have been caught enabling unchecked spying and surveillance by the NSA and other government agencies.” Net Neutrality is important for small business owners and entrepreneurs who use the Internet to promote their products. Without Net Neutrality, their opportunity to grow would be taken from larger companies with more money, who would simply pay ISPs to interfere, delay, or completely block websites from their emerging competitors. On May 15, the FCC proposed to make such actions legal. The Save the Internet campaign along with the American Civil Liberties Union, Common Cause, Slate, and others urge the public to demand a reclassification of ISPs. By signing online petitions directed at FCC chairman Tom Wheeler, whose plans go against Net Neutrality, we can demand our right for an open Internet, where free speech prevails and where our privacy is legally valued.

San Gabriel votes to increase sewer rates The San Gabriel City Council voted 3-2 at its June 3 meeting to increase sewer rates throughout the city by adding a new sewer fee, according to a published report. The fee is about $9.75 a month for homeowners of single family residences and will be used to repair the city’s aging sewer system, according to that report. In addition, the system has seen 13 sewage spills in the past seven years, meaning the city has received a citation “and a consent judgment from the State Attorney General’s Office, giving it nine years to make major improvements” to the 72mile system, according to that report. Mayor John Harrington and council members Jason Pu and Councilwoman Juli Costanzo

By SHEL SEGAL voted in favor of the sewer fee, while and council members Chin Ho Liao and Kevin Sawkins voted against it, according to that report. Under Proposition 218 residents were allowed to protest the fee increase with half of the city’s property owners – or 4,623 written protests – needed to halt the increase. However, just 737 protest votes were received by the San Gabriel City Clerk, according to that report. The rate for single family homeowners was originally set for $13. However, the council lowered it to the $9.75 rate condominium owners will be paying just before the vote was taken, according to the report. “The structure, generated by a model from the Los Angeles County Sani-

tation District, charges most businesses by square foot : $5 for a supermarket, $10 for an office building. Fourplexes pay a set fee of $30.20 a month, public high schools pay 60 cents per student and private schools $10 per square foot,” according to that report. Liao said during the meeting that he was worried that non-Englishspeaking residents didn’t have all the information needed to decide on the fee increase as the “threepage city notice was sent in English, but had a line in Chinese and Spanish giving residents a number to call for more information,” according to that report.

Low cost housing in Sierra Madre? The Sierra Madre City Government has two properties that were acquired some years ago with CRA property tax dollars and are stipulated to be used for low-cost housing. This is a requirement by the State mandate and now since the governor cancelled out the property tax money stream, which the State grabbed for their use. This brings up the subject of what to do with these properties. There was a socalled public meeting that was only advertised on the City's website. Nothing was said at the City Council meeting that was held two nights before. Is there any wonder why the meeting was so poorly attended by the citizens? The discussion centered around the closed church property located on Highland Avenue. The main thought

at the meeting was to convert the old church into a lowrent condominium development. It boggles the mind as to how this thought even was mentioned. The building is over fifty years old and the cost of converting and updating to living quarters would cost more than the building is worth. This says nothing about how restrictive it would be on the design and space use. There is only one thing that makes sense and that is to clear the land and build a new structure. The City should not be involved in the financing of a new structure, but rather sell the property to a developer with the stipulation to build according to the mandate of big brother the State Government. The cash that the City would receive up front of any

building would provide money to prepay the long-term debt the City has on record and help to reduce the interest cost on this debt. The same is true with the other property, known as the Goldberg Park. This parcel has only one stipulation on it. The Goldberg Family has the first right of purchase in the event of a sale which is not to likely to happen since the property is worth more than double the price that the land was purchased at. The City Government is in no position to develop these properties and the monies received from their sales would help to put the government on a more solid financial basis. Only one thing makes sense, GET OUT OF THE REAL ESTATE BUSINESS! Sierra Madre Watchman.

The City of Sierra Madre ‘one of the 10 safest places in California’ Movoto, the real estate research blog, recently completed research on the safest places in California. This morning, the company sent out an press release

stating Sierra Madre was ranked as the 8th safest place in California, for all cities with populations over 10,000. There were 365 cities evaluated in the analysis.

City officials say Sierra Madre’s dirty water safe By Shel Segal The water in the city of Sierra Madre might be brown, but it is safe to drink, city officials said on Monday. In a meeting with Beacon Media Inc., Bruce Inman, public works director for the city, said the browning of the water was being caused by iron oxide or rust. He said that it is harmless and the Los Angeles County Department of Health has deemed the water as safe. Inman added the pipes in Sierra Madre just got used to groundwater, and when that was changed there was a reaction in the water being delivered. “The water system that has been in place for many years is accustomed to the chemistry of the water that we have been serving, the groundwater that we have been pumping out of the ground,” Inman said. “It’s developed a very delicate balance. When we switched water supplies that balance was disturbed.”

Inman added while the water doesn’t look like it just came from a mountain stream, it won’t hurt you. “It doesn’t look good, it doesn’t smell good, but we’re not trying to fool anybody,” he said. “We’re not happy the water is like that. We have been advised by the health department that it is not unsafe. Basically, we’re talking aesthetic issues here.” Sierra Madre City Manager Elaine Aguilar said not everyone in the city has colored water, just those on the city’s perimeter bordering either Arcadia, Pasadena or the Angeles National Forest. “It’s not every one of our water customers,” Aguilar said. “We do have a few areas in town where our water mains sort of dead end, where there’s some residual colored water. We know we have a few areas around town where they still have some problems with colored water. Most customers are

not having a problem, but we do know that there are some out there, to be fair.” She added she is hoping the city will solve the problem soon. “We are in the process, hopefully at the next city council meeting, to get the council’s authorization to work with an expert to see what we can do to finally resolve this problem,” she said. This doesn’t sit well with some residents, such as Cynthia Gitt. Gitt lives on Michillinda Avenue and said she doesn’t buy the city’s answer regarding the water in town. “I did not think his explanation was correct,” Gitt said. “It’s brown, it’s gray, it smells metallic. We can’t drink it … I can’t turn off the water. I don’t have the option of turning off the water and going to a desert garden.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@ beaconmedianews.com.

A Seattle, Washington man was sentenced today to 16 months in federal prison for his participation in a Southern California mortgage-elimination scheme that promised to prevent foreclosure through the paying off of the distressed homeowner’s mortgage. William Beard, 40, was further ordered by Chief U.S. District Judge Marsha J. Pechman to pay restitution of $1,343,618 to the IRS and victim banks and spend 3 years on supervised release following his prison term. In February of this year, Beard pleaded guilty to a one-count information charging him with evading taxes on his 2005 tax return for his failure to report as income the proceeds of the mortgage-elimination scheme. According to documents filed with the court, after falling behind on his mortgage payments for his Los Angeles home in 2005, Beard enrolled in a mortgage-elimination program recommended by his

mother. That scheme, run by Jeff McGrue, Ronald Morgan, and another defendant whose indictment is under seal, involved a series of false documents, including a fraudulent Full Reconveyance purportedly authorized by the lender that was instead signed by Beard’s two roommates. The purpose of the Reconveyance was to make it appear as if Beard had paid off his mortgage through the false representation that Beard’s roommates were authorized to declare the mortgage satisfied. In June of 2005, the unidentified co-schemer obtained an $800,000 loan from WMC Mortgage and purchased Beard’s Los Angeles home. Beard caused a payoff demand to be sent from McGrue’s company North West Capital for the false loan. Based on that payoff demand, the escrow company sent $800,000 to North West Capital’s bank account in Washington. No proceeds were paid to Wells Fargo Mortgage, the true holder of the mortgage lien, because the title company did not recognize the

This case is related to three cases filed against a total of five defendants in the Central District of California, all of which arose out of the same or similar mortgage-elimination schemes. Jeff McGrue, the mastermind of the scheme that involved duping 300 homeowners to pay thousands of dollars for mortgage elimination, received a 300-month sentence of imprisonment in 2011. http:// www.justice.gov/usao/cac/ Pressroom/2011/100.html. Cooperators Gerald Guidry and Ronald Morgan received 36 and 33-month sentences, respectively. John Pierre Rivera, a homeowner whom Beard told about the scheme awaits sentencing based on his expected cooperation against a fifth defendant, whose indictment is under seal. This investigation was conducted by IRS Criminal Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in conjunction with the United States Attorney’s Offices for the Central District of California and Western District of Washington.

Reconveyance as fraudulent and treated the Wells Fargo Mortgage lien as having been satisfied. The $800,000 was divided amongst the co-schemers with Beard receiving the largest portion, $400,000. As planned by the schemers, Morgan did not issue IRS Forms 1099 to the schemers to show their receipt of the scheme proceeds, so the payments remained off of the IRS’ radar. Beard filed his 2005 tax return failing to report the $400,000 of scheme proceeds, causing a tax loss to the government of at least $117,905. Beard remains obligated to pay his original mortgage, which was not satisfied through the mortgageelimination scheme. In addition, Beard participated in a second mortgage-elimination scheme involving a residence owned by his friend, John Pierre Rivera. In the second scheme Beard received just over $40,000, again failing to report the proceeds of the scheme as income on his individual income tax return.

Congressman Schiff riding in AIDS/LifeCycle

545 mile bike journey from San Francisco to raise money and awareness for AIDS

-Photo by Terry Miller

Since Sunday, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) has joined thousands of cyclists and volunteer “roadies” on a 545-mile journey from San Francisco to Los Angeles – the AIDS/LifeCycle – to raise awareness and funding for the fight to end HIV/ AIDS. This annual journey raises millions of dollars to support the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the HIV/AIDSrelated services of the L.A. LGBT Center. Schiff will be the first Congressman to ever participate. The ride ends on Saturday at the Los Angeles VA Center (11301 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, 90025). Rep. Schiff has kept a running journal with photos on his Facebook page and Instagram account – below are excerpts from his journey: Orientation Day: Why is this man smiling? Because I just finished orientation for this year's AIDS/LifeCycle ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles and ... I haven't had to ride a single mile yet! Tomorrow we begin the 545 mile trek and I may not be grinning quite so much. To paraphrase Mr. T, "prediction for the ride, pain." But fun too. I'm really excited about it and will be blogging my experience right here. I hope you follow along and give me your encouragement. I've already gotten some good tips from readers

-- thanks for that. And to answer the question on the board behind me in the selfie, I ride because I want to see an AIDS free generation. I know you do too. Day One – Up at 5 am: Up at 3:30 am this morning to get to the Cow Palace by 5 am. Lori Jean of the Los Angeles LGBT Center gave a rousing welcome to the thousands of riders who have come from all over the country and then we were on our way. Over to the coast and down the Pacific Highway, through Half Moon Bay and on to Santa Cruz in some of the most beautiful countryside anywhere. Rolling hills over rugged coastline, just gorgeous. This was my longest ride ever -- 80 miles. But tomorrow is the real doozy, 108 miles. The best part of the ride, in addition to the great views, are the great riders and roadies. Very entertaining crowd, let me tell you. Meeting a lot of my constituents along the way and so far so good .... stay tuned! Day Two – Si Se Puede: The morning started out in Santa Cruz weaving through rush hour traffic then down towards the beach and one killer hill -- short but fatal. I think I used up my quads on that hill and it was only a few miles in towards our 108 mile day. After our jaunt to the coast we headed inland to Salinas and

through dozens of miles of beautiful farmland -- strawberries, artichokes, and other crops as far as the eye can see. You get a real sense of California as the bread basket of America, with all its amazing specialty crops. Highlight of the day was passing farm workers in the artichoke fields and one yelling out to me: "Si, se Puede!" It was just the boost I needed. Soon we entered wine country -- more rolling hills and endless beauty. Tuscany smushcany; California is much cheaper and the wine is better! From there it was flatland as far as the eye can see and I wasn't sure my quads would make it. My clip-in shoes weren't clipping (kind of defeats the point), but then the most incredible thing happened -- tailwinds. Strong as anything, blowing me like a ship heading home, 20 mph, 23, 26, almost effortless. Got to 38 on a downhill, not sure that was such a good idea. If I had Jerry Seinfeld's puffy shirt my wheels would have come off the ground. Don't think I will do that again. Then a turn and crosswinds almost blowing you off the bike, leaning in against the wind. Then headwinds, bummer, pedaling hard and watching a desert tortoise pass me by (in fairness, he was more aerodynamic). But, alas, a mile to go, just passing mile marker 107 and -- drumroll -- flat tire. Not a biggie, fixed it and finished. As I write this, I'm sitting down, sort of. Actually even the plastic chairs here in the mess hall feel like a lazy boy after my bike seat. Wish me luck tomorrow, I think I'm going to need it. Day Three – the Quadbuster: Not sure where I am tonight exactly, camping out in a state fairgrounds in San Luis Obispo County. The ride started out with the biggest hill of the week, aptly called Quadbuster. It must be, I don't know, a seventy percent grade or something. Ok, maybe not quite that steep, but it felt that way. Still I made it up without stopping which was quite an achievement since I had already busted my quad on the century ride the day before. So for me, it was

more the Quad-Rebuster. You know what's amazing to me though, there were people flying past me up that hill as if they were going downhill. I felt like yelling out to them -- hey, do you know you're going uphill? And I would have too, if I had the wind. Today's selfie is at the top of Quad-Rebuster, but you don't get a real feel for the Everest-like quality of the mountain. From there it was more farmland, hot dry winds in the face mostly and tough roads. …Lots of great people on this ride. Many of them riding with a laminated photo of a loved one who died of HIV/Aids on the back of their bike. Some rode up and down that hill today multiple times -- once for everyone they had lost. Pretty impressive. And it certainly means I should be able to do it once. Tomorrow are the evil twins and I hope my luck holds up. Off to sleep now. Day Four – the Evil Twins: Today began much earlier than expected, just after midnight in

fact. Awoke to the sound of loud rushing and my first thought was, it can't be 5 am wake up yet. My next thought was that the guys in the next tent over were deflating the loudest air mattress I'd ever heard. Wrong again. It was the sprinkler going off right under the tent to our right. Someone evidently forgot to tell the county fair that we were camped in the outfield. Not an auspicious start to the day. Then we were off to the so-called "evil twins". They were not as steep as Quadbuster, but much longer. Still, I'm not sure I would call them evil. So there I am, I've gone up the first of the twin hills today and I'm a fair way up the second when a very nice woman by the side of the road is cheering us on. She's got this sign that says "only 2.5 more miles to the top," and she yells it out to you like that's a good thing. Now, I know she's trying to be helpful and all, but telling you there's "only" 2.5 more miles to the top

REAL ESTATE, HOME & GARDEN SPECIAL SECTION Begins June 26 To advertise, please call 626.301.1010

when you're already exhausted and thought the top was right around the next bend, well, it's kind of demoralizing. I don't know about you but the only way I can get up these hills is by deceiving myself into thinking every turn is the last one. You know you're lying to yourself, because the hill just goes on and on without end but somehow it helps. The photo here is the view from the top, which is also the halfway point to LA. Hallelujah. Then it was a long freezing ride down to the ocean, which was amazing. I felt like a settler coming over the hills in my covered two-wheeled wagon. Very cool. This is an astonishingly beautiful state which you can appreciate a little more when you bike it because you feel you earn it more. It's red dress day tomorrow, which many of the riders -- men and women -- take quite literally. I will be wearing a red shirt. Boring I know, but I'm not ready for my Dukakis in a tank moment.

Monrovia says plastic bags okay, after all After voting to ban single-use plastic bags on May 6, the Monrovia City Council changed its mind at its June 3 meeting, voting instead to still allow the carriers, according to a published report. The ordinance was rejected when two supporter of the ban – council members Larry Spicer and Alexander Blackburn – were not present on June 3. Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz also supported a ban on the bags, according to that report. The ordinance would have made it illegal to offer “carry-out plastic bags at grocery stores, convenience stores, liquor stores and drug stores,” according to that report. The council has been exploring how to ban the bags

By SHEL SEGAL for about a year after some residents approached the council, expressing concerns about the bags effects on the environment, according to that report. “An ad hoc committee to explore the ordinance included residents, business owners and representatives from Home Depot, Walgreens and Pavilions. The committee brought to the council the ordinance, which is modeled on the same ban adopted by Los Angeles County. The ban would have affected 34 stores in Monrovia,” according to that report. The ban on the bags was set to go into effect on June 19 as it was approved last month. However, following that the council wanted a four-month period before

the ban was to start “to educate the community about the ban,” according to that report. There is a chance the plastic bag issue might come back before the council. However, an official with the city said a majority vote of the council is necessary before the proposed ban could be brought up again, according to that report. And with three council members already stating that they support the ban it is believed it will pass sometime in the future, according to that report. One other local city with a ban on single-use plastic bags is Pasadena. (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

Heat and drought conditions bring out the snakes

Voted Best Plumber in SGV

By Shel Segal While they don’t get as much media attention as cuddly black bears, several species of snakes inhabit the foothill communities and can be plenty of a nuisance, if not dangerous. Larry Giannone, Sierra Madre police chief, said the year’s snake season began early due to the high temperatures that have happened as of late. “We’ve had one incident where a rattlesnake bit a lady who was working in her garden,” Giannone said. “It occurred about 10 days ago. But this is just the start of the heat coming out and our snake season has taken an early rise.” Giannone said Sierra Madre residents are already starting to deal with snakes on a larger scale.

“We’ve had several snake calls – probably three times the amount of snake calls – this time of year than we typically do,” he said. “This time of year we’d only have one or two, but this year probably up to 10 or 12.” He added the unseasonably warm temperatures locally in April and May made the snakes more active early in the calendar. “It’s really the weather change,” he said. “The weather pattern is different. We had that week a few weeks ago when it was 103 degrees over here. It acts like summertime for them, so they come out of hibernation. They warm up and then they like to go to a cool place to cool

down and that’s usually where you see them. In the garden, under chairs. They’ll just go to a shaded area.” In addition, Giannone said if you encounter a snake it is best not to be a hero. “The best thing to do is to give us a call,” he said. “A snake is not going to chase you. You don’t want to be aggressive with them. They typically move on their own. But give us a call and we’ll come up and remove them … But it’s best to let them go back into the wild. It’s good for nature. They take of rodents. They take care of the ecosystem. We don’t kill the rattlesnakes. We always relocate them.” Giannone also said if

you are bitten by a snake there are some steps you should follow. “If you do get bit, the old misnomer is put a tourniquet on the wound,” he said. “That is not true anymore. If you get bit the main thing is to call 911. Let the authorities know right away because our local hospitals do keep snake venom on hand. But the actual dosage takes 45 minutes to prepare. So, the sooner our paramedics can get on the phone with the hospital, the sooner when the patient gets there they’ll be able to be treated.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

The Shakespeare Club of Pasadena 60th Annual Scholarship Awards Luncheon For 60 years the Shakespeare Club of Pasadena has been honoring graduating seniors from the Pasadena Unified School District with scholarships for their continuing education. The awards are presented at an annual luncheon and this year’s recipients have proved to be an outstanding group of young people. The Club presented the awards to four exceptional graduating seniors, who were nominated for the awards by their counselors, on May 20th at the Shakespeare Club’s Villa on Grand Avenue in Pasadena. The program began with a welcome by Club President Barbara Sakuma who introduced special guest, Mayor Bill Bogaard. The Mayor shared his “Words of Inspiration” to the group and congratulated the seniors on their awards. The luncheon was co-chaired by club members, Lori Ely and spokesperson for the program of the day, Annette Arce. She introduced John Gundry, Superintendent of the PUSD who offered his congratulations and encouragements to the recipients as well. Annette then invited each of the counselors to the podium to introduce their students and Annette presented them with their

markable students will be receiving $2000.00 to aid them in the coming school year. Carlos Valladares delighted guests with a solo from the musical “Fiddler on the Roof” and the program concluded with thanks and remarks from Monica Forgey, Club Philanthropy Chair. The scholarship funds were made possible by the net proceeds donated by past Shakespeare Club Benefit Productions and the Club’s Annual Fashion Show. The Shakespeare Club offers many social and philanthropic opportunities and they welcome new members year round.

This summer the Taylor Performing Arts Center in Monrovia, California in partnership with The Boone Foundation will present The Wizard of Oz for two weekends only, opening on Friday, July 11th at 8:00 pm and running through Sunday July 20th. “This is our third professional production for the community and we are very excited to begin rehearsals on this iconic show that touches the hearts and minds of everyone who sees it!” said Patrick Garcia., Director of Performing Arts for Monrovia Unified School District and the Producing Artistic Director for The Wizard of Oz. Garcia has hired an impressive creative team including Director, Allan Hunt; Choreographer, Paul David Bryant; Music Director and Conductor, Brigham Freeth; Stage Manager, Martyn Tyler; and Set Designer, John Ong. “We are delighted to announce that well-known Southern California actor, Francesca Sola, will play the role of Dorothy along with a cast of nearly 80 actors, singers and dancers of all ages. In addition to advertising in Backstage, we also reached out to members of this community including students from our schools and encouraged everyone to audition. We are very pleased with our cast, including 40 of our own Monrovia elementary

students cast as munchkins and flying monkeys and look forward to delivering an outstanding production, one we know this community will come out and support.” Garcia gives The Boone Foundation, which is the show’s production sponsor, a great deal of credit for supporting these professional productions for the community. Over the last several years, The Boone Foundation has generously provided funds to support band and strings programs within Monrovia Unified School District as well as dance and drama programs. President of the Boone Foundation, Nick Boone, shared the mission statement of the foundation that was started by his late father, real estate developer, George Boone as one that,” Provides opportunities to encourage young people in Southern California to lead creative and productive lives.” “The Boone Foundation believes in excellence and strong leadership and we have put our faith and trust in Patrick Garcia, the Director for The Wizard of Oz. We are excited to be a part of the third professional production for the community at the Taylor Performing Arts Center,” said Boone. If you haven’t been inside this glorious theatre since bond money paid for it to be restored, you must see it. This beautiful 1928 space was built

by John C. Austin, the same architect who built Los Angeles City Hall, the Shrine Auditorium, and Griffith Park Observatory. “We invite all of you to come out and see The Wizard of Oz at our beautiful, newly renovated, 1,700 seat, state-of-the-art theatre facility,” said Garcia.

AHS Valedictorian says honor ‘feels pretty surreal’ By SHEL SEGAL Jonathan Chu doesn’t know exactly what his grade point average was at Arcadia High School. All he knows is he was recently named the valedictorian of the 2014 graduating class. Chu said he didn’t think he had the grades to receive the prestigious award. “It feels pretty surreal,” he said. “I didn't really think I’d get it. I kind of teared up when they announced my name. I didn’t really expect it. It showed that all that hard work paid off. I just got a wave of emotion of thinking how much hard work I put in during high school.” While Chu said he studied a great number of subjects, there probably is no chance he will become a writer, musician or actor. “I did a whole range of subjects,” he said. “My main focus was math and science, so I took AP calculus courses. I took AP calculus BC my junior year. My favorite subject was probably physics. I took physics C, which is mechanics courses, along with electricity of magnetism.”

Chu also explained how difficult the science is that he was studying. “It’s basically current flow, power through electricity, how magnetism and magnetic fields affect current flow … There’s a lot of circuits. A lot of circuit diagrams, laws and mathematical equations. It goes hand in hand with calculus. You need a lot of calculus to solve this,” he said. And his least favorite class? “My least favorite class was English because I was bad at it and I knew I was bad at it,” he said. “I always had a mathematical mindset. I would always think methodically. I said my essay always had to be planned this way. I didn’t just try to write what I was thinking. I would always try some sort of organization to get the right answer.” Chu said he is now off to college and will be studying science at the University of California, Berkeley. He said he chose Berkeley over Caltech in Pasadena as it is a chance to go away for

school. “A lot of people told me to go to Caltech,” Chu said. “I felt like I didn’t want to because I think the most important thing in choosing a college is how you feel on campus. I felt like college was a time for me to explore a new place. I couldn’t do that 10 minutes away from home.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com.

22nd Senior Powerlifting Games at Sneiders Family Fitness in Arcadia

__ Woy yoy yoy yoy, yoy yoy-yoy yoy! __

Continues without World Champion Lifter Harry Sneider

The Sneider family has hosted the Senior Games Powerlifting competition for the last 22 years. This year Harry Sneider’s presence was greatly missed as you can imagine. After the national anthem there was a minute of silence to remember Harry. But the enthusiasm, compassion and camaraderie of the lifters was evident. This was likely the largest gathering of Senior bench pressers in the nation. Bill Weinstock, an AAU official referee and Loren McClurg, a terrific lifter, helped Sarah and Rob Sneider with the meet. One of the highlights of the championship was Lee Brandon from Santa Monica, Women’s 2-time Long Drive Champion and creator of the Ab-Inforcer, who put up 135 lbs. Arline Connelly from Pasadena who has been a loyal lifter for the last 16 years bench pressed an impressive 95 lb at age 67. Sarah Sneider won her 19th gold medal. The battle of the 85 year olds was exciting between Ruth Saenz from Rosemead and Joyce Getzen from Arcadia. Ruth put up 70 lbs and Joyce won the Women’s Best Lifter Award by putting up 75 lbs. The men’s compe-

tition was very intense. Manny Mora from LaCrescenta won the Men’s Best Lifter Award by bench pressing 150 lbs at age 85. Jack Lynch from Arcadia, one of the nation’s top athletes, who has won numerous national and world championships, powered up an impressive 290 lbs at age 70! Other great lifting was performed by Joe Jenkins from Riverside who put up a mighty 300 lbs at a bodyweight of 185. Steven Mull from Hemet pressed 335 lbs and Mike Aguerre from San Francisco put up 325 lbs. Other notable lifters include Pete Antoine from Beaumont who benched a personal best of 270 lbs. Pete’s come for many years to lift in these competitions. Robin Connelly from Pasadena won his 17th medal. David Conner

from Shadow Hills powered up 270 lbs. Many of these lifters go on to national and world championships in powerlifting. The Senior Games have been a part of the San Gabriel Valley sports and fitness culture. They include many sports that you can participate in like golf, tennis, swimming, track and field, cycling feats of strength, bowling, basketball, softball, volleyball, and others that are exciting and youth invigorating. Contact Cynthia Rosedale at 626-685-6754 or www. pasadenaseniorgames.org. The Games run through June 29 and you can still enter. Sarah and Rob Sneider continue to train athletes for these Games year round. You can reach them at 626-355-8964 or harrysneider@earthlink. net. Go for it!

male high school teachers, standing on the sidewalk. When the juveniles stopped their vehicle to say hello, the teacher walked toward them and appeared to be intoxicated. The teacher then asked for a ride, to which the driver agreed. During the ride, a conversation with the teacher caused the driver to become worried, and therefore pulled over. After the juveniles exited the car, the teacher said he wanted to go to “Jack in the Box,” and ordered the juveniles back into the car. Fearing for their well-being, the juveniles reentered the car. It was at this time the teacher then pulled out a knife on them. During the ordeal, one

of the juveniles was able to call 911. Shortly after, the teacher saw the LASD helicopter overhead, and ordered the driver to stop the car. The teacher then got out of the car and fled the location. On Sunday, June 8, 2014, at approximately 1:30 P.M., the suspect walked into Altadena Sheriff’s Station lobby where he surrendered without incident. The suspect was arrested for kidnapping, false imprisonment, and criminal threats. He was booked at Crescenta Valley Station and is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail. Maust, who was an instructor with Arroyo

Pacific Academy in Arcadia, has since been advised that he is on administrative leave, Philip Clarke, president of the four-year, private collegepreparatory school, said in a statement. Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the LASD Altadena Station Detective Bureau, Detective Taylor at (626)7981131.

Warner Bros. VIP studio tour celebrates Batman’s 75th anniversary with ‘The Batman Exhibit’ In celebration of the 75th anniversary of DC Comics’ iconic Super Hero, Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour will open its new attraction, “The Batman Exhibit,” beginning June 26. Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour worked closely with DC Entertainment to create “The Batman Exhibit” and it will be a featured addition on the studio’s historic backlot for a limited time. “We have the most exciting props, costumes and vehicles from all seven Batman films on display for visitors to see,” says Danny Kahn, Executive Director, Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour. “During this unique opportunity, our studio tour guides will also reveal behind-the-scenes secrets from the seven films and the ‘classic’ Batman TV series, highlighting several scenes that were actually filmed on the Burbank lot.” Visitors will be able to get up close and personal with the original suits worn by Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale in their respective portrayals of Batman, making it the first time that artifacts

from all seven films have ever been exhibited together. In addition, the exhibit will feature costumes worn by prominent supporting characters and villains, including Robin, The Joker, Two-Face, Catwoman, the Penguin, the Riddler, Mr. Freeze, Batgirl and Alfred. Also on display will be a wide range of props, including Batarangs, Joker cards, Two-Face coins, one of the Penguin’s umbrellas and Bane’s bomb. In conjunction with the Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour, DC Entertainment has also created a historic display

of iconic Batman comic book covers that provides a one-ofa-kind, colorful photo backdrop for visitor photos, readymade for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In the studio’s Picture Car Vault, several of the Caped Crusader’s most famous vehicles, including the Batpod, Tumbler and Batmobile, will be exhibited as they were in his lair. Visitors will have the opportunity to activate the Bat-Signal and pose at a Batman-themed interactive green screen photo opportunity.

First appearing in the comic book Detective #27, which hit newsstands on March 30, 1939, featuring artwork by Bob Kane and a script by Bill Finger, Batman emerged from the shadows to become the world’s most popular Super Hero and dominate all media. In feature films, TV shows, radio, video games, publishing and merchandise, this most human of Super Heroes has battled some of fiction’s greatest villains using his intellect, cunning and an arsenal of gadgets to further his quest for justice.

an armed robbery. McDade was later found to be unarmed. The 911 caller, Oscar Carrillo, later admitted he lied about the suspects being armed in order to get a faster police response and he has been convicted of making a false report. Carrillo may face deportation. The officers shot McDade seven times, according to the coroner’s report. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed to the press at the request of the Judge. McDade’s mother, who filed a separate lawsuit related to her son’s death, settled with the city on Friday, according to city officials. Attorney Carre Harper told Beacon Media via email that "The Agreement came when I was contacted late last night by the Magistrate. Today was to merely memorialize the terms." Here is a copy of the court docket text provided to us by McDade’s attorney: “MINUTES OF Status Conference re Jury Trial by Judge Dolly M. Gee: The cause is called and counsel state their appearance. The Court is in-

formed that Plaintiff Kenneth McDade and Defendants have reached a settlement in principle, and the settlement terms are memorialized on the record. Pursuant to the parties' request, the Court SEALS the transcript of the hearing that was held in chambers until further order by this Court. After the parties execute their written settlement agreement, they shall submit a stipulation, with a proposed order, to dismiss Plaintiff McDade's claims within 30 days from this date. Jury fees in the amount of $1,497.761 are assessed against Plaintiff McDade and Defendants for late notice of the settlement, with each side to pay $748.88 in jury fees.”

Thanks for the Memories: Musical tribute to Bob Hope and the USO

Stoneface Continued from page 1

a perfect marriage. Assembling the cast of characters that would support the impressive project was no easy task and taking the show from a small theatre of less than 100 seats to the Pasadena Playhouse was another challenge the producers easily overcame. Recreating the famous falling house scene was a logistical challenge the actor and stage crew took into their hearts and subsequently pulled off one of the most memorable scenes in movie making history with flawless accuracy and skill. According to numerous sources, at six months, Keaton tumbled down a flight of stairs unharmed, and was given the name "Buster" by Harry Houdini who, along with W.C. Fields, Bill Robinson ("Bojangles"), Eddie Cantor and Al Jolson shared headlines with "The Three Keatons": Buster, his father Joe and mother Myra. Their act, one of the most dangerous in vaudeville, was about how to discipline a prankster child. Buster was thrown all over the stage and even into the audience. No matter what the stunt, he was poker-faced. By age 21 the stunts became too dangerous to perform and the act dissolved thanks in no small part to alcoholism. Keaton first saw a movie studio in March 1917 and, on April 23, his debut film, Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle's The Butcher Boy (1917), was released. His first full-length feature, The Saphead (1920), established him as a star in his own right. By the middle of 1921, he had his own production company-Buster Keaton Productions-and was writing, directing and starring in his own films. With a small and close team around him, Keaton created some of the most beautiful and imaginative films of the silent era. The General (1926), his favorite, was one of the last films over which he had artistic control. STONEFACE will play June 3 to June 29. The Pasadena Playhouse is located at 39 South El Molino Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101. The performance schedule is Tuesday through Friday at 8:00 p.m.; Saturday at 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.; and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.mOn 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.

Father and son set the tone for a harmonious Father’s Day and summer with Cal Phil

12178

California Philharmonic Principal cellist Dennis Karmazyn and his emerging violin virtuoso son, 20-year-old Max Karmazyn, are tuning up for a significant milestone in both their professional and personal relationship. Though Dennis has been with the acclaimed orchestra for seven seasons and Max for three, their performance during the 2014 season opener marks the first time the talented duo are featured artists together during a Cal Phil concert. The concert, titled John Williams and Friends, will feature the Karmazyns captivating audiences with a performance of the Theme from Schindler’s List, in a special arrangement for cello and violin, created especially by Max for himself and his father. The concert, which takes place Saturday evening June 28 at Santa Anita Race Track and again on Sunday afternoon June 29 at Walt Disney Concert Hall, also features the Karmazyns performing the finale from Brahms’ Double Concerto. “We love performing together. There is an inherent

musical connection between father and son that you just don’t get performing with anyone else,” said Dennis, also the Principal Cello in Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, who has recorded for over 1,500 film scores and is recognized internationally as a renowned soloist and chamber artist with Columbia Artists’ Management. “Our primary focus is playing beautiful music. This has been the dynamic since Maxwell first began playing the violin at age 15 and we are thrilled to share this special moment with California Philharmonic and its loyal audiences.” “At sixteen I was a soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, with my father, Albert Karmazyn, who was a violinist in the orchestra,” continued Dennis who compares California Philharmonic under the direction of Maestro Victor Vener to Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic and Arthur Fielder and the Boston Pops for flawlessly combining classical and

popular music. “Needless to say, I have been performing for most of my life, and I cannot be happier to continue this generational tradition of performing with my son.” Max, who attends college at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor pursuing a double major in Violin Per-

formance and Composition, agrees. “What is most meaningful to me, is that I arranged the music that my father and I are playing for the Cal Phil. Three generations expressing themselves through music,” added Max, who also shares

how he is passionately drawn to the music of Schindler’s List. “I grew up with the stories about my grandparents on my father’s side of the family, and how they survived the persecution of the Nazis in World War II.” The Karmazyns, who also enjoy performing house

strument was picking up the cello with "my father giving me instruction…for about five minutes before pursuing the violin. 'Never stop trying, be persistent, and work hard.'” And what words of advice struck a chord with Dennis? “I was gearing up to perform a major solo with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra in front of an audience of nearly 18,000 people. Hours before the concert, I sat with Max, then three years old, who was playing with a book. I asked him what it said. Max looked up at me and proclaimed, ‘you will never fail,’” added Dennis. “I reflect on this memory as one of the best pieces of -Courtesy Photo advice and words of encouragement I could concerts for family and ever receive.” friends, continue to inspire Audiences throughout each other through both Southern California have words and music. options to attend extremely “The most useful advice different experiences of Cal my father has given me is Phil’s one-of-a-kind concerts his popular adage, 'extra ef- at two iconic venues; every fort,'" continued Max, whose other Saturday evening at first attempt at playing an in- Santa Anita Race Track on

In addition to the Karmazyns' performance, the 2014 blockbuster season kicks off with a selection of pieces from some of John Williams’ most memorable scores, including Star Wars, E.T., Jaws and Jurassic Park. And if all of that isn’t enough to create a musical spectacular, the Cal Phil Chorale joins the orchestra for Karl Orff’s Carmina Burana and the haunting Dry Your Tears, Afrika from Amistad with special guest Sarah Culberson. And on top off all that, the concert ends in typical Cal Phil style with Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.

Pasadena Unified announces free summer meals available for area children The Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) will offer free breakfasts and lunches for children and youth 18 years old or younger this summer through the 2014 Summer Food Program. This is the 34th consecutive year that PUSD has participated in the program. The free meals, made following U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrition guidelines, will be served at schools, parks and other sites throughout Pasadena and Altadena. Children

do not need to be enrolled in PUSD schools to receive a meal and no pre-registration is required. The 2014 Summer Food Program is sponsored by the USDA and PUSD’s food services division and operated by PUSD, the city of Pasadena and other local organizations. “The USDA’s Free Summer Meals program is an amazing program that ensures all children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session,” said

Ralph Peschek, PUSD Administrator of Child Nutrition. “All a child has to do is show up at one of over 25 community feeding sites and they will be provided a free breakfast or lunch, no questions asked.” Participants just need to show up to receive a meal but must eat the free meal at the community feeding site. For more information and a list of sites, visit www.gopusd.com/ summermeals or call PUSD Food Services at (626) 3965850.

Police shoot pit bull during a probation compliance check A local law enforcement task force was conducting a compliance check at a residence in the 1900 block of N. Marengo Avenue Tuesday morning when a dog charged offi-

cers and one officer fired several shots, striking the dog. The dog survived and was transported to a local animal hospital. No persons were injured. Detectives responded and con-

ducted an investigation. Pasadena Police arrested John Pollerana (Male Hispanic, 54-years old, Pasadena resident) for a probation violation. He was booked at the city jail.

Safety urged during 4th of July; All fireworks illegal in Pasadena The Pasadena Fire and Police Departments remind the public it is illegal to sell, use or possess fireworks in Pasadena. The City maintains a Zero Tolerance Policy for fireworks. Violators are subject to arrest; impound of vehicles; up to one year in jail and fines up to $50,000. Instead, celebrate the Fourth of July Holiday with family and friends by attending the 88th annual “Americafest,” one of the best family-friendly, professional fireworks shows in Southern California at the beautiful Rose Bowl Stadium. Go to www.rosebowlstadium. com for event and ticket information. Plenty of fun begins outside America’s Stadium at 2 p.m. Gates open at 7 p.m. for Americafest, with live motorcycle stunts; a tribute to our military personnel; Liverpool Legends, the Ultimate Beatles Experience, and Southern California’s largest fireworks show, Pyro Spectaculars ® by Souza. If You See Something, Say Something! Call Pasadena Police at (626) 744-4241 to report illegal fireworks and other suspicious activities. Due to the high potential for fire hazards and injuries, Pasadena police and fire personnel will staff checkpoints around the Rose Bowl Stadium to seize all fireworks and arrest offenders. The Pasadena Fire Department will begin applying Phos-Chek Tuesday, July 1, 2014 to brush areas surrounding the Rose Bowl Stadium. The main ingredients of this annual, preventative application of fire retardant are phosphates and fertilizers that help prevent trees and grasslands from burning and re-vegetate any burned wild land areas. Pasadena’s Fire Chief Calvin E. Wells and Police Chief Phillip Sanchez ask everyone to make safety their top priority this year while responsibly celebrating our Great Nation’s Birthday due to extreme drought conditions and the long holiday weekend. The City offers the following

safety reminders: • Pasadena has a “NO Fireworks, Zero Tolerance Policy” for enforcement. • C e l e b r a t e responsibility, always designate a driver. • If outdoors in the sun, remember to use sunscreen, wear a brimmed hat and stay hydrated. • Always have someone tending the barbecue and watching the swimming pool when in use. • Call 911 for all lifethreatening emergencies. • Call (626) 7444241 for all other public safety needs. Speak calmly and give accurate information about your location and the reason for calling. • Visit www. CityofPasadena.net/ Disaster for emergency preparedness information and to register your telephones to receive Red Flag Alerts or other emergency notifications. In addition to stadium checkpoints, multiple units of a Fireworks Task Force will patrol Pasadena’s streets to confiscate fireworks and take appropriate enforcement action.

Parking enforcement officers will ensure that vehicles illegally parked in Pasadena’s hillside areas on July 4 are impounded. Statistics show fireworks are among the most risky of all consumer products. Even sparklers, which many people consider safe, are very dangerous, reaching 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, and can cause serious burns or start fires. Nearly 10,000 fireworks-related injuries are treated in U.S. emergency rooms every year and two of five people injured are under 15 years old. Statistics from the National Fire Protection Association show more than 90 percent of all fireworks-related injuries are caused by so-called “safe and sane” fireworks approved by federal and state law for consumer use.

Annual June Faire brings thousands to Sierra Madre

Pasadena city council approves a $55M contract for the Glenarm Power Plant Repowering Project The contract was awarded to ARB, Inc., which posted the lowest bid of $55,661,973. ARB will provide the design and construction of the project covering the replacement of a conventional boiler/ steam turbine-generating Broadway unit used by the City since 1965. A Pasadena Water and Power Dept. staff report said the old unit will be replaced with a new combined cycle unit called GT-5 set to reduce the city’s fuel consumption and emissions, and lower the city’s carbon footprint. The new unit is expected to be operational by May or June 2016. “This is a very important project for the city in terms of reliability, in terms of reducing green house gasses and keeping our costs down,” said Margaret McAustin, Pasadena City Council member for District 2. The project was adopted in March 2009 as part of

the City Council’s Integrated Resource Plan, a 20-year program that aims to deliver “reliable and environmentally responsible electricity at competitive rates.” The project will be funded as a part of Pasadena’s Capital Improvement Program. The city will issue bonds to finance part of the project, officials said. Information from PWP’s website says that the Glenarm Repowering Project will apply the “Pasa-

dena First-Buy Local,” a city program that ensures maximum efforts are made to hire locally. Local business and residents will be given contracting and hiring opportunities through the city’s Local Participation Plan, which calls for 15 percent of the subcontracting and procurement on the project to be satisfied by Pasadena businesses, and 25 percent of the payroll to be satisfied by Pasadena residents.

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 which was held on Saturday. 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 were 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! The Faire opened with a formal Presentation of the Colors accompanied by a professional bagpiper, followed by the American and

British national anthems. Dancers were present most of the morning and some even got a chance to learn the fine art of Morris Dancing. Colorful booths and boutiques situated on the beautiful 2½ acre campus offered arts and crafts, books, tools, collectibles, personal accessories and decorative items for sale. All proceeds are donated and help to support the British Home.

Honda CR-Z brought a previously absent aspect of entertainment to the hybrid marketplace. While its sleek body and two-seat interior might lead you to believe the Honda is a sports car, it is most assuredly not. The Honda's just a very cleverly packaged automobile, offering plenty of car for the money, with a 160watt audio system, automatic climate control, the top safety rating from the IIHS, and four out of five stars in most of NHTSA's testing. 2011 Mini Cooper, $19,800 Squeaking in at just under the $20,000 Autobytel used price cap, the 2011 MINI Cooper Convertible is a highly desirable car with good build quality, very entertaining driving characteristics, and strong fuel economy. Admittedly, its safety ratings are just a notch below the absolute best, but that doesn't mean younger drivers shouldn't own one. Meanwhile, it boasts an eclectic interior treatment, up to 37 miles per gallon on the highway, and a commendable level of standard features. Access the full article to learn more about the rest of the vehicles on the list, including the Ford Fiesta; the Kia Soul; the Honda Civic; the Nissan Altima; the Volkswagen Jetta TDI; the Hyundai Tucson; and the Toyota Tacoma.

The Speedway celebrated Father's Day a week early with a full card of great oval racing. It started on Friday night when Ryan Vargas from La Mirada set a new track record for the Universal Studio Bandoleros with a 17.925 lap (the first one under 18 seconds ever by a Bandolero car). The 13 -year-old then went on to win both the Friday and Saturday night editions of the twin "Bando" races. With his win in the first Lucas Oil Late Model race of the night, Ryan Partridge from Rancho Cucamonga moved to number three on the all-time list of Irwindale feature race winners at 43 wins. Long time competitor Gary Frankovich has had more than his share of fast times and good finishes in the Irwindale Super Stocks, but, until this race, the Apple Valley resident (who began competing at Irwindale in 2006) had never won a race. The veteran and first-time winner (with some 40 years of racing in his logbook) was one very happy camper at the Speedway on Saturday night! Ok ... and now in the continuing Saturday night saga of Ryan Partridge, his second win of the evening, this time in the 40-

lap Irwindale Race Trucks event, moved him into a tie (at 44) with Agoura Hills' Tim Huddleston for second place on the all-time win list at Irwindale. Alta Loma's Brent Scheidmantle had a good race to win the Inex Legends Cars 35-lap main event and extend his lead in the 2014 season championship points chase. The second Lucas Oil Late Model race of the saw every position (but first) in contention on every lap. Toni McCray (left), from Highland, took a good lead from the start, but a number of yellow flags saw her end up in a closer than close one lap fight to the finish with Cole Custer (Ladera Heights). When the checker finally flew, she had won her first Late Model race of the year by less than half a second.

Los Angeles County Sheriff ’s disappointed with Department of Justice report The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the Department of Mental Health “remain committed to protecting the constitutional rights of all inmates housed in the Los Angeles County Jail system by providing high quality mental health care,” according to a press release issued last week. In August of 1996, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) toured the jails pursuant to the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act, and in 1997 identified 44 recommendations to improve the mental health services of LASD. Since

that time, the dept. has “ worked collaboratively with the DOJ and its experts to implement their recommendations, have responded to their numerous written compliance reports, and made significant improvements.” “Every suicide and attempted suicide is of great concern to us. Both agencies are and have been fully committed to prevention efforts. We are disappointed that today’s report fails to fully recognize the additional progress made over the last year and a half to improve mental health services. The report

also mischaracterizes and significantly understates the incredible efforts made to improve our suicide prevention practices,” the release states. “The Sheriff’s Department and the Department of Mental Health have worked for years to implement reforms recommended by and in concert with the DOJ. While we are concerned about the overall tenor and accuracy of last week’s report, we remain committed to work with the DOJ to address its concerns and improve services to all inmates under our care”

Grow your own backyard paradise in a pot By Melinda Myers Create a backyard escape with the help of container gardens. Whether you’re looking for a visit to the desert, an English garden or tropical paradise, a few planters can help create the mood. Reduce your workload and increase your enjoyment with a bit of planning and proper planting. Select a container with drainage holes and one that mimics the color and feel of the location you are trying to recreate. Use troughs, stone or other containers made from neutral colors when growing succulents. The container should complement, but not overpower the simple beauty of the desert plants. Keep things warm and natural when going for a more tropical feel. Wicker, bamboo and other natural materials work well with the lush foliage and vibrant colors of tropical plants. Add a few terra cotta, metal and basket type containers when creating an English cottage setting. Set them on your patio, steps or in the garden to create a focal point. Keep your plants looking good throughout the season with the proper planting mix. Look for potting mixes with good drainage and water holding abilities, like Schultz Potting Soil Plus (schultz.com). Check the label as some mixes contain enough fertilizer to last the entire season and water-retaining crystals to reduce the need to water. Use a cactus mix that provides the perfect growing conditions for cacti and succulents. The potting mix should retain the moisture and nutrients the plants need, while providing the excellent

drainage that is a must for these plants. Plant any orchids added to your backyard tropical paradise in a potting mix designed for these plants. Use an orchid mix that has excellent drainage and aeration, yet retains the moisture and nutrients these beauties need to thrive. Check your planters daily and water thoroughly whenever the top few inches of soil are crumbly and slightly moist. Allow cacti and succulents to go a bit drier. Mulch the soil in tropical, herb, vegetable and annual container gardens. Spread a thin layer of shredded leaves, evergreen needles or twice

shredded bark over the soil surface. Use fine pebbles for cacti and succulents that like things hot and dry. And don’t forget about garden accents. A wattle fence and arbor of twigs and branches work well for an English garden setting, while a water feature can enhance a tropical paradise themed garden, and some southwest garden art can complete the desert scene you’re going for. So start your vacation this year with a trip to the garden center. Invest in a few containers, the right potting mix and plants. Then plant your way to the retreat of your dreams.

ing a skimming device to capture credit card numbers in the gas pumps. Edvard Martirosyan, 27, and Aram Manasaryan, 22, both residents of Glendale, were taken into custody without incident at 2:40 AM June 7. There were other skimming devices, laptop computers, counterfeit credit cards, and other tools used to compromise the gas pumps inside the suspects’ vehicle. This is the second incident at the Valero Station within two weeks. Police Chief Larry Gian-

none said” the Officers quick response to the alarm call allowed us to catch the suspects in the act. Officers were on scene within one minute of being dispatched to the call and caught the suspects as they were attempting to leave.” Chief Giannone also urges anyone that has used a credit or debit card from May 22nd to June 6th at the Valero Gas Station to monitor their bank statements for any unusual activity just to be on the safe side. “At this point in the investigation we cannot be 100% certain

that some personal information was not captured.” Martirosyan and Manasaryan were booked at the Pasadena Police Dept. Jail on multiple felony charges and then were transferred into Federal Custody and taken to the Metropolitan Detention Center. Martirosyan also has a pending case with Secret Service and was out on bond at the time of his early morning arrest. The U.S. Secret Service has agreed to take the lead in the investigation.

California Fish and Game Commission votes to add gray wolf to state endangered list The California Fish and Game Commission has voted to move forward with listing the gray wolf as an endangered species under California law. The vote took place at the regularly scheduled Commission meeting in Fortuna on June 4. Commissioners Richard Rogers, Jack Baylis and Michael Sutton voted for listing, while Commissioner Jacque Hostler-Carmesin voted no. Commissioner Jim Kellogg was not present. “No land animal is more iconic in the American West than the Gray Wolf,” said Sutton, who is also president of the Commission. “Wolves deserve our protection as they begin to disperse from Oregon to their historic range in California.” The new regulatory language will take several months to complete and approve. However, today’s decision provides permanent protection for the gray wolf, and immediate protection under the California Endangered Species Act. That protection will remain in place throughout the required regulatory process.

The gray wolf is already federally listed as an endangered species and is therefore protected by the federal Endangered Species Act in California. The federal Endangered Species Act makes it unlawful to take any listed wildlife unless permitted by regulation. The term “take” means to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, collect or attempt to engage in any such conduct. The protection provided under federal law overlaps, but does not supersede, protection provided by listing under California law. At this time, there are no

gray wolves known to be in California. A male wolf that originated in northeastern Oregon – known as OR7 – has crossed the Oregon/California state line several times since December 2011. At this time, OR7 is in southwestern Oregon, where he has found a mate. On Monday, June 3, biologists from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife captured photographs of two wolf pups in the vicinity. For more information about gray wolves, including OR7’s travels in California, please visit www.dfg.ca.gov/ wildlife/nongame/wolf/FAQ. html.

44th annual Beastly Ball this weekend at LA Zoo By SHEL SEGAL In preparation for this weekend’s 44th annual Beastly Ball, the Los Angeles Zoo treated members of the media to spectacular dishes prepared by local chefs inspired by their favorite animals on June 5. Serving the food in the Rainforest of the Americas at the Los Angeles Zoo, three Pasadena restaurants – Jersey Mike’s, Glorious Gourmet and Garnish Café and Celestino Ristorante – took part in making these delicious dishes, along with raising awareness about the plight of animals. Jersey Mike’s owners Kassie and Caroline Simmons served a submarine sandwich called “Hammy the Hippo,” which is the Jersey Shore favorite and inspired by the zoo's two hippopotamuses. Glorious Gourmet and Garnish Café owner Jocelyn Hanson served golden lion tamarin cake, inspired by the zoo’s cotton top tamarins that hang out near the Rainforest of the Americas. And Celestino Ristorante chefs/owners Calogero Drago and Nicole Lane served raviolini alla quattro stagione con mascarpone e salvia, also known as multi-colored raviolini stuffed with mixed vegetables and a mascarpone sage sauce. This was inspired by the zoo’s mandrill with its beautiful and vibrant facial colors. Kassie Simmons said

she really had the animals in her heart when planning for this event. “We really love the animals,” she said. “We love supporting such a good cause. This exemplifies the work we want to do and help out in any way that we can.” As the Jersey Mike’s in Pasadena in located on Lake Avenue – the family also has Jersey Mike’s in South Pasadena and La Canada – Kassie Simmons said their animal-inspired dish was made authentically “Mike’s way.” “We made ‘Hammy the Hippo,’” she said “He is made of ham, cappicolo, a little bit of cheese and he has a little head constructed out of bread. We made him Mike’s way: lettuce, onions and tomato, oil and vinegar and a little bit of oregano.”

The Beastly Ball is the main fundraiser throughout the year for the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association and the Los Angeles Zoo. Tickets to the Beastly Ball, which is held at the zoo under the stars this Saturday at 6 p.m., are $1,000 per person, with individual and corporate sponsorship opportunities at higher levels also available. For tickets and information, call (323) 6444753 or log onto www. lazoo.org. This year’s Beastly Ball will honor Ken Ziffren with the Heather Mycoskie and Tom Mankiewicz Leadership Award recipient.

How men can help guard against poverty in their golden years June is Men’s Health Month, a reminder for men to do the things that they generally don’t do as well as women: getting screened for conditions that, detected early, are easily treated; seeking education about health issues, and supporting each other’s well-being. If being happier with good health isn’t enough, then men should consider the extraordinarily high medical cost of poor health – especially during the retirement years, says insurance industry expert Chris Orestis. “Just one health incident can wipe out an individual’s savings, leaving little money for living expenses,” says Orestis, a longtime industry insider and author of “Help on the Way,” (http://ebook. lifecarefunding.com/), which explains the problem of funding long-term care and offers solutions. “That can mean a major loss of independence, from having to move in with a son or daughter or worse. Baby Boomers, who are retiring in droves, have about 8 percent less wealth than those 10 to 15 years older than them, partly

because of the recent recession.” In addition to taking care of their health, retired and soon-to-be-retired men can avoid flirting with poverty by exercising some financial options. Orestis reviews three of them. • Hold off on collecting Social Security until age 70. The life expectancy for men today is 76, an increase from past years, and it’s expected to continue to climb. If you’re worried about outliving your money, hold off on collecting Social Security benefits early (age 62), which results in up to 30 percent less benefits. People born from 1943 to 1959 are eligible for full benefits at 66, and those born in 1960 or later are eligible at 67. However, if you wait until age 70, you can receive up to 8 percent more in benefits. • Turn your life insurance into a long-term care fund. Instead of abandoning a life insurance policy because you can no longer afford the premiums, policy owners can convert a portion of the death benefit value into a Life Care Benefit – Long

Term Care Benefit Plan (www.lifecarefunding.com). The money is deposited into a fund earmarked for paying for private duty in-homecare, assisted living, skilled nursing, memory care and hospice care. By converting a life insurance policy, a senior does not have to resort to Medicaid and the many restrictions that come with it, but will still be Medicaid-eligible when the benefit is spent down. • Consider investing part of your portfolio in fixedrate indexed annuities: Having all of your retirement savings in stocks exposes retirees and pre-retirees to too much risk. As you get closer to retirement age, it’s important to find alternatives that provide for growth while protecting savings. Fixed-rate indexed annuities – money loaned to an insurance company that guarantees payments over a specified length of time -- allows you to forecast the income you’ll generate. Fixedrate indexed annuities have a ceiling on interest rates, but they also have a floor. Your principal is safe and you can ride an up market without the risk.

Tom Torlakson reports significant drop in Five financial considerations when number of districts in financial jeopardy you’re going through a divorce A new report shows that the number of California school districts in financial jeopardy has been slashed by more than two-thirds over the past year, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced. This year’s Second Interim Status Report, FY 201314 shows a total of 30 local educational agencies (LEAs) are either in negative or qualified financial status. This is down significantly from the last report—in March 2014— that showed 49 LEAs with this status. This is also down even more significantly from the same report a year ago. In the Second Interim Status report of 2013, there were 92 LEAs in financial jeopardy. See Table 1. "A combination of factors over the past few years has given schools the tools they need to take control of their own future again,” Torlakson said. “Although we won’t be finished until every school is on stable ground, this is welcome news that school funding is moving in the right direction.” Twice a year, the California Department of Edu-

cation receives Notice of Interim Certifications on the financial status of the state's 1,038 LEAs, comprising school districts, county offices of education, and joint powers agencies. The certifications are classified as positive, qualified, or negative. A positive certification means the LEA will meet its financial obligations for the current and two following fiscal years. A qualified certification is assigned when the LEA may not meet its financial obligations for the current or two following fiscal years. This certification allows the LEA's county office of education to provide assistance to the district. A negative certification—the most serious of the classifications—is assigned when the LEA will be unable to meet its financial obligations for the remainder of the current year or for the subsequent fiscal year. This certification means the LEA's county office of education may intervene in the district's finances. The assistance or intervention by the county office of education may include assigning exter-

nal consultants, requiring a district fiscal recovery plan, or disallowing certain district expenditures. Of the current 30 LEAs on the list, seven have a negative certification, down one from the last report in March 2014. The remaining 23 LEAs have a qualified certification, down from 41 reported in March 2014. See Table 2. This new list is a compilation of the certifications by LEAs that were due April 16, 2014, and cover the financial and budgetary status of the districts for the period ending January 31, 2014. The certifications reflect whether the LEAs are able to meet their financial obligations for the remainder of the current fiscal year and subsequent two fiscal years, based on projections at that point in time. These certifications also predate the Governor's May Revision to the proposed 2014-15 state budget. Because these Interim Status Reports are snapshots in time, the LEAs' financial status may have changed since these certifications were collected.

When a marriage comes to an end, the emotional toll can be exhausting. Yet staying level headed — especially about finances — is vital to your future well-being. Dividing assets that were once shared is a daunting task and can feel quite overwhelming. It’s important to focus on what you can control with your finances. If you are preparing for a divorce, here are five tips to help get your financial situation in order: 1. Start gathering information — Unfortunately, divorce can bring out the worst in some people. Even the most honest spouse may attempt to hide assets and income. To help ensure fair alimony and/or child support payments and an equitable division of your assets, make copies of your tax returns from the last five years. Also, understand and document your total net worth. This includes your investments and other assets, such as your home and vehicle, and your liabilities. Even if a person is dishonest with you, it’s likely he or she has been honest on your income tax returns out of fear of penalties, fines or

prison. 2. Understand tax implications — Not all assets are created equal. In fact, dividing assets is quite complex, and it can be difficult to get a true 50-50 even split. For example, if your home and 401(k) are worth roughly the same amount, the tax implications and costs of maintaining and/ or selling each of these assets will differ greatly. Consult with trusted legal, tax and financial advisors to make sure you understand the true value of your assets before you divvy them up. 3. Assess your debt — It’s important to figure out exactly how much you owe and to whom — and whether your spouse has accrued debt without your knowledge. Start by requesting a joint credit report from each of the three credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian and Trans Union). Next, go through the credit reports and identify which debt is shared and which is in your or your spouse’s name only. If possible, stop accruing additional debt and pay off as much debt as possible before you divorce. In reality, it doesn’t matter what your final divorce decree says about who has to pay the debt. If your ex is ordered to pay certain debts and fails to do so, a creditor will come after you to collect if your name is on the loan agreement. 4. Establish a solid foundation for your future — After your divorce, you’ll want to start out on the firmest possible financial footing. If you haven’t already, establish credit in your own name and set up your own bank account. Also, request a personal earning and benefits statement for yourself and one for your spouse from the Social Security Administration. When you reach the age where you can start collecting Social Security, you may end up collecting

some on your spouse’s record. At this point, your spouse’s information will not be readily available to you. 5. Update your insurance coverage — Make sure that your spouse’s name isn’t on your medical or dental insurance, or any other insurance policies that you both own — and determine whose policies the kids should be on. You’ll also want to update and reevaluate all your insurance policies — including auto and property — to make sure you have the right amount of coverage for yourself and your dependents. In addition, update the beneficiary designations on any personal insurance policies or other investments you own, as those designations override the wishes stated in your will. For help making sound financial decisions during a divorce, consult with your financial, legal and tax consultants. They can help you understand the shortand long-term financial implications of your choices before you finalize them. Your financial advisor can also help you design a financial strategy that helps meet the needs of your new situation. Jean D.

Life Remembered Harry Sneider

Harry Sneider’s world record breaking bench press of 450 lbs at age 61!

Harry Sneider was an amazing man,” larger than life”. His life story is one of overcoming. He was always incredibly positive, cheerful, faith filled, an inspiration and encouragement. He was a God centered individual and always trusted God to direct his steps. Most of all he was a CHAMPION PERSON! Touching the lives of many around the world with his positive attitude, he made the world a better place. Coach Sneider was always eager to help others achieve their ultimate human potential. He lived his life to the fullest with integrity, generosity, and an abiding faith in God and a deep conviction to encourage others. To his family and friends he was a larger than life hero and although he will be deeply missed, his smile will live in our hearts forever. His was a life well lived. He was a WINNER! Harry was born in Riga, Latvia on March 19, 1941. When the Russians arrived in 1944 he and his family escaped going through Krakow, Poland, then into Czechoslovakia, and eventually a Displaced Persons camp in Germany. While in Germany he developed osteomyelitis in his leg and almost died at age 6. He basically became handicapped for the rest of his life. In 1949 he and his family came to the United States and settled in Minneapolis, MN. It was there that Harry underwent another surgery, this one requiring a nine-inch plate near his hip joint. Never considering himself “handicapped” he played football throwing better than the pros, softball, basketball, and won racquetball championships. He was a world record holder in the bench

press, pressing 450 lbs at age 61! As a professional fitness trainer he trained many actors including Susan Anton for her role in Golden Girl. He trained and was a good friend with Tony Dow, Wally in “Leave it to Beaver”. Coach Sneider trained many Olympic athletes, including Dwight Stones, 2 time Olympic bronze medalist and 3 time world record holder in the high jump; James Butts, Olympic silver medalist in the triple jump; Mark Gorski, Olympic gold medalist in cycling. Harry was nominated Track and Field Coach for the 1980 Olympics. One of Coach Sneider’s memorable trainees was Bob Wieland, who had had his legs blown off from the hip down while serving in the Vietnam War. Harry completed four marathons with Bob and encouraged Bob on his walk across the United States on his knuckles to The White House. Harry also trained long-time friend Wayne Grimditch, winner of Superstars. Lee Brandon, a graduate of Ambassador College and 2-time World Long Drive Champion was mentored by Harry. As a trainer of champions he was a longtime friend of Jack LaLanne and Arnold Schwarzenegger. He developed a revolutionary fitness program and authored the best selling book, Harry and Sarah Sneiders’ Olympic Trainer. He created fitness videos Sneiders 20 Minute Workout DVD and Sneiders Resistive Rebounding DVD helping many thousands to better health around the world. He participated in The Great American Workout at The White House, Washington D.C. in 1992. He went to the Univer-

sity of Minnesota for his A.A. degree. In 1967 he came to California to attend Ambassador College and earned his B.A. degree and eventually his doctorate from Pacific Western University. He was on the faculty at Ambassador College and was Executive Fitness Director until the college closed in 1990. He then along with his wife, Sarah, and son Rob, continued to train Olympians, champion athletes in tennis, track and field, basketball, volleyball, soccer, baseball and more at Sneiders Family Fitness in Arcadia. He was very involved in the Senior Olympics and hosted the annual Senior Games Powerlifting Championships for 21 years. He also trained many families, couples, as well as high school athletes to achieve college scholarships which he continued up until his death. His son Rob and wife Sarah continue the family business. Hundreds of articles were written about Harry, including Sports Illustrated, USA Today, and the L.A. Times. He wrote many articles for the local papers and recently completed a manuscript about his 36 years as trainer and friend to world chess champion Bobby Fischer which is being looked at by a movie producer. He was filmed in the movie Pumping Iron starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and more recently had a major role in the documentary Bobby Fischer Against the World. He is also featured in the TV series The Leading Gen. What will you do with the rest of your life? A recent interview with Neil Earle and Harry Sneider can be viewedat http://www. dctvduarte.com/video_view. php?id=699868. His family was always the center of his world and he leaves behind his loving wife of over 45 years, Sarah, and his three children, Deborah Morris, Karl Sneider and Rob Sneider, son-in-law Tom Morris, daughter-in-law Leticia Sneider, four grandchildren, Madison Morris, Mason Morris, William Sneider and Julian Sneider, his mother Elsa Sneider, brother Karl Peter Sneider, sister Ilse Sneider and many nieces and nephews. A celebration of his life will be announced at a later date.

California credit unions show positive gain By SHEL SEGAL

Loan growth at California credit unions for the first quarter 2014 grew at 2.2 percent, marking the first time since 2009 that first-quarter loan growth showed a positive gain, according to a report released recently by the California Credit Union League. In the San Gabriel Valley, total loan growth for the first three months in 2014 was even better at 3.4 percent. Overall, credit unions in the state saw broad growth in their loan portfolios from first quarter 2013 to first quarter 2014. Auto loans led the way with new and used vehicle loan balances growing by 5.8 percent and 2.9 percent, respectively, according to the report. Meanwhile, first mortgages saw a gain of 2.4 percent, second mortgages grew 1.4 percent, and business loans gained 2.6 percent in the first three months of 2014, according to the report. Among San Gabriel Valley credit unions, the picture was rosier with

new and used vehicle loan balances growing by 22.5 percent and 14.6 percent, respectively. First mortgages saw a gain of 2.6 percent while business loans grew 3.9 percent, according to the report. In addition to taking out more loans, credit union members in the state are also saving. Credit union savings balances grew 3.3 percent in the first quarter of 2014 and by 3.5 percent in the year ending March 2014, according to the report. With little change in terms of the historically low interest-rate environment, consumers again remained focused on short-term liquid accounts. In the first quarter, credit union checking account balances grew by 7.7 percent, while regular savings grew by 5.6 percent, money market accounts increased by 2.0 percent, and certificate accounts posted a modest gain of 0.1 percent, according to the report. In the San Gabriel Valley, credit union checking account balances posted a modest 0.1

percent gain however; regular savings grew by 5.9 percent. And money market accounts increased by 5.2 percent, according to the report. “Since the beginning of 2012, the state has added almost one million new nonfarm payroll jobs. The impact of those jobs really started to show up in 2013,” said Dwight Johnston, chief economist for the league. “Since mid2013, California credit unions – including those in the San Gabriel Valley area – have seen loan demand jump as more consumers are back on their feet. We are seeing that especially in the auto loans area particularly. The firstquarter gain this year was particularly noteworthy as the first quarter of any year is typically slow.” In addition, the increase in business loans show demand is increasing in this arena as well, Johnston said.

A new California Appellate case just published August 8, 2013, “Glaski v. Bank of America”, holds that a homeowner can challenge his lender’s right to foreclose by showing that the Deed of Trust never made it into the securitized trust until after the trust’s closing date. This is the case in most loans made in the last 12 years. If the bank foreclosed we should be able to get the homeowner money damages and/or the house back. Or a lawsuit could be filed and a court ruling obtained preventing the court from foreclosing. Recently enacted Sections 2924(a)(6) and 2924.19 of California Civil Code provide the same relief to homeowners. It is highly suggested that homeowners take this window of opportunity to get relief before the banks get Congress to close this door with national legislation. Contact us so we can help you.

Memorial scholarship awarded by foothill credit union June is usually a month filled with graduations and celebrations. That’s why Foothill Credit Union (Foothill) decided to create a memorial scholarship to celebrate the life of Adrian Castro of El Monte. A $2,000 scholarship was created by Foothill to be offered exclusively to those who felt the loss of Castro the strongest- the students at El Monte High School. Many remember the tragic accident several months ago when a charter bus taking students to visit the campus of Humboldt State University collided with a FedEx truck. Castro was among those killed in the accident. According to the Los Angeles Times, 19 year old Adrian Castro was an athlete, an older brother, and a young man who was always determined to finish what he started. Because of Foothill’s close partnership with the El Monte High School District, the credit union wanted to contribute to the positive memory of Castro. He would have been the first in his family to attend college, so Foothill deemed it fitting to create a college scholarship in

his name. Foothill’s Adrian Castro Memorial Scholarship was created a month after the accident. Foothill worked closely with Joel Sanchez, Head Football Coach and Physical Education Teacher, to lay out the details of the scholarship. Foothill presented the scholarship to its first recipient, Tiyana Watkins on June 6th at El Monte High School’s senior luncheon. Watkins played basketball for four years, volleyball for four years and was on the track team for

two years. She will be attending Pasadena City College. Watkins was chosen as the scholarship recipient because she embodies the same hard work, team spirit and drive that Castro did. Foothill specializes in serving local school district and hospital employees. The credit union strives to exceed its members’ expectations. With a zest for serving schools within the credit union’s field of membership, Foothill has become a recognized organization within the community.

House narrowly defeats Starting a new business? amendment to allow File your DBA with us at filedba.com Bob Hope Airport San Gabriel City Notices to adopt curfew CITY OF SAN GABRIEL

For questions or concerns regarding this project, or if you wish to review the project file, please contact:

Tuesday, the House of Representatives came within a few votes of allowing the Bob Hope Airport to adopt a curfew on an amendment to the Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development (THUD) Appropriations Act proposed by Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks), and Henry Waxman (D-Los Angeles). The amendment was defeated by a narrow vote of 208 to 212. This issue previously was voted on in 2011, and failed then by a vote of 178-243. “I’m disappointed that our amendment to allow Bob Hope Airport to adopt a curfew narrowly missed passage,” said Rep. Schiff. “But I'm encouraged that bipartisan support for a curfew at the Bob Hope Airport has only grown, and hope that the FAA gets the message that we are serious about noise relief. The Part 161 process is deeply flawed and the FAA has little intention of granting relief to any community unless it is forced by Congress. I will continue fighting on behalf of the thousands of San Fernando Valley residents who have long-sought relief from aviation-related nighttime noise, and look for future opportunities to pass legislative language to make this possible.” “Ninety-nine percent of Valley residents want to sleep at night without being awakened by a loud jet,” said Rep. Sherman. “Congress should act so that the reasonable nighttime curfew sought by Burbank Airport can be put into place. I will continue to fight for nighttime curfews at both Van Nuys and Burbank Airports.” “I am disappointed the Republican controlled House has defeated this important, common-sense amendment,” said Rep. Waxman. “The airport should have the authority to impose a legally binding curfew on all flight operations and nighttime flights to the benefit of the residents who live in the surrounding communities.” This amendment would clarify that Bob Hope Airport should be exempted from the Airport Noise and Capacity Act (ANCA), like other similarly situated airports were at the time of its

passage. In the case of the Bob Hope Airport, this was one of the first airports in the country to impose a curfew. The language would allow Burbank Airport to adopt non-discriminatory curfews applicable to operators from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. "The City of Burbank and the Burbank City Council are committed to providing nighttime noise relief for the entire San Fernando Valley,” said Burbank Mayor David Gordon. “As a result, the City of Burbank and the Burbank City Council strongly support the legislative efforts of Congressmen Schiff and Sherman in this regard." The legislation would apply only to Bob Hope Airport and addresses concerns that the FAA cited in rejecting Burbank’s Part 161 application for a curfew – that it would add congestion to an already crowded airspace and it would impact the national system of airports because it would cause system wide delays. The proposal would have a minimal impact on local airspace because a joint curfew for both airports is designed to ensure that air traffic is not shifted from one airport to the other. During a speech on the House Floor, Schiff stated: “Thousands of residents of Southern California’s San Fernando Valley, who live under the flight paths or near the terminals at the Bob Hope Airport, endure the house-shaking noise of air traffic during the day and suffer the jarring interruption of their sleep caused by a roaring jet. To address the concerns of those affected by airport noise across the nation, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) established a process to consider an individual community’s request for a curfew. However, the process was designed to be difficult – so difficult, that in the decades since it was established by the FAA, only one airport in the nation has successfully completed an application – Bob Hope Airport. And then it was summarily turned down… Because of the FAA’s dismissive attitude toward legitimate local concerns it is clear to us that the only way to provide relief to the residents in our community is through legislative action.”

LA LUNA 4, AZUSA, CA 91702 Assessor’s Parcel No.: 8617-004-020 NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.

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.
