Judge who overturned California teachers’ tenure hails from Temple City By Terry Miller The judge who has ruled that California’s tenure protections for public school teachers are unconstitutional, hails from Temple City. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Rolf Treu graduated Temple City High in 1966, according to records obtained by this newspaper. Tuesday last week, Judge Treu ruled in favor of nine students who sued the state saying tenure and seniority policies have made it virtually impossible to fire bad teachers. One of those

Of all my vacations, my favorite has to be the month I spent on a farm in County Sligo, Ireland with my husband's cousins. Living with a family and being a part of their everyday lives, I discovered the much-storied Ireland of peat fires and pubs. I experienced firsthand the Irish temper and the Irish wit. I soaked in the beauty of vast green fields broken by labyrinths of stone fences creeping up the hillsides. No adjective could ever capture the peace and pleasure I felt as I climbed those hills and luxuriated in the seclusion. One fine morning I had set off to hike over the hills on a shortcut to the coastline. My feet were selfsteering through the sparkling dew-covered grass, my mind was just kind of floating from one thing to another, and my wits had gone bird's nesting.

I was suddenly brought out of my reverie when I heard behind me a long, low "Mooooooo." I glanced over my shoulder and saw a bull coming toward me with a look in his eyes that said he had a definite plan of action in mind. Well, folks, I took off with a speed you cannot imagine. I headed straight for one of those tall, sturdy stone fences and went up and over it with the ease of a cat over the back of a couch, except I didn't land as gracefully. When I painfully rolled over and looked up, there was the bull with his head

up on the fence staring at me. I don't think he saw me as much of a threat. He watched me for a short while, snorted and trounced off across his field. When he was but a dot on the horizon, I decided it was finally safe to climb back over the fence and continue my journey. It was safe enough but, try as I might, it didn't seem possible. I didn't have the same motivation as before. I never did get back over that fence. Even in the quietude of the green hills of Ireland, I had been reminded that we often have to take detours in life.

2014 Transit Pix Winners

Send your letters to tmiller@beaconmedianews.com

The federal land grab The Sierra Madre City Council had a discussion at a recent meeting concerning the pending Land Grab Bill that Representative Judy Chu is promoting. This Bill would turn over the San Gabriel Mountains to the ownership and control of the National Park Service (NPS). In addition to the land, this would also give the NPS control of all the trails, lakes and, most importantly, the water supply that comes from our Local mountains. The alleged benefit is the NPS would take better

Dear Editor In the late 1800's the land we know as the Angeles National Forest was originally dedicated as the San Gabriel Timberland Reserve. In the early 1900's it was put under the name Angeles National Forest. Memory serves me that it was the 7th National Forest. The original intent, which is still being protected were the water resources generated by this wild land. Around 1912 the Forest

ed by the Mt. Wilson Trail Race stay in Sierra Madre. We think not. We cannot think of a single reason for the people of Sierra Madre to be in favor of this tremendous land grab. We believe very strongly that Sierra Madre should join with Monrovia and send a letter to the representative with the strongest objection language that they can come up with. The whole idea is bad for Sierra Madre. We know best as to how to care for OUR land. Sierra Madre Watchman

Service realized forest users became forest protectors. They allowed citizens to lease forest land and build summer cabins. Where these cabins still exist you will find some of the best protected and preserved wild lands. Also during this period hundreds of miles of trails, campgrounds and ranger stations were built to serve the public. In the last 20 years budgets have been slashed and the public service programs have suf-

fered drastically. My problem with the Chu proposal is that it ignores history in trying to reinvent the wheel. If all the time and trouble that has been spent on this proposal was instead directed at changing the conditions existing in the current forest service management we would achieve the same desired results. I am so tired of reading letters from people who think there is going to be some magical transformation of the forest

under Chu's proposal. Instead what is really needed is the voice of forest users to be represented in a meaningful way by government representatives dedicated in an un political manner to serve the public needs. In closing, things in the forest could be better but the public should not be so critical of the Forest Service when they (the forest service) are controlled by Congress. Glen Owens Monrovia

A broad partnership of residents, cities, local businesses, health and environmental justice organizations, community leaders and conservation groups commends Rep. Judy Chu (D-Pasadena) for introducing legislation that will permanently protect the San Gabriel Mountains, rivers and parks for millions of Southern California residents and visitors. The bill will preserve

the Angeles National Forest which provides 70 percent of Los Angeles County’s open space and one-third of its drinking water. "Water is the lifeblood of our economy and contributes to the vitality of Southern California especially in areas like the San Gabriel Valley that depend on renewable supplies from watershed areas in the San Gabriel Mountains,” said Michael

Whitehead, Chief Executive Officer of the San Gabriel Valley Water Company. “Congresswoman Chu has worked diligently with local water providers to ensure that access to our watershed and water supply is protected. A clean and reliable water supply is crucial to the quality of life residents of the San Gabriel Valley currently enjoy." Rep. Chu’s bill follows a decade of efforts by other

Congressional leaders including former Rep. Hilda Solis, whose 2003 bill led to a federal study of the San Gabriel Mountains and rivers, and former Rep. David Dreier’s 2011 wilderness bill. Permanently protecting the forest, rivers and parks will preserve their gifts of water, scenic wild lands and healthy recreation for future generations. San Gabriel Mountains Forever

Readers says Chu's plan is ‘timely' Dear Editor: Connecting Los Angeles residents, especially our children, to the outdoors is vitally important. It’s wonderful to have the San Gabriel Mountains right here in our backyard, but frankly, access and facilities are not

what they should be. And they are certainly not up to the task of handling the demands of a major metropolitan area. That’s why Congresswoman Chu’s legislation to create a national recreation area is so timely. It raises

the profile of our mountains with the powers that be in Washington, so that improving facilities and educational programs become a priority for Congress and the President. My hope is that soon the San Gabriels will be viewed

as a model of what an urban forest can be. There are so few places like it anywhere. We should do what we can to make sure it is protected. Thank you Congresswoman Chu. Nachiely Bravo San Fernando

Letters to the Editor (Cont.) Print is not dead Dear Terry, I wanted to thank you again your outstanding coverage in the Weeklies of our June Faire. Your follow-up in the latest edition(s) was a lovely surprise and certainly icing on the cake! The Faire’s attendance was the best we’ve had in years, and we did a random survey of patrons to find out how they heard about it. The numbers were split between the “regulars,” who personally spread the word, and

everyone else, who cited “they saw it in the newspaper.” Who says print media is “dead”?! I can’t tell you how glad I am that we cleared up the communication glitch that prevented our publicity from reaching you. (Computers— boon or bane?) Thank you so much for contacting me about it. I’m sorry I did not get to meet you personally at the Faire. I was hoping to treat you and your wife to

a banger! Alas, I was hither and yon photographing and pitching in to help where needed, so I was never in one spot for very long and hard to pin down. I am looking forward to crossing paths, which I hope will be sooner than later. Thanks again, Terry, for all your help. Sincerely, Stephanie Vitale Administrative Assistant II The British Home Sierra Madre

California Teachers' Tenure Continued from page 1

students who testified was Raylene Monterroza from Blair High school in Pasadena, who testified about a great teacher and one “grossly ineffective” teacher who“.. made me afraid, it made me not want to try or show up to school, and it was basically an opportunity to learn wasted, and it really put me behind my peers.” Lawyers for the teachers say the changes would allow the firing of teachers too easily. The decision will have a “significant impact on the way California hires and fires teachers and could spur changes in other states with strong tenure laws,” according to lawyers who fought for continued tenure. Testimony by Raylene Monterroza from PUSD. Raylene Monterroza, a sixteen-year-old Plaintiff who attended traditional district schools in the Pasadena Unified School District and the Long Beach Unified School District, took the stand after Elizabeth Vergara completed her testimony. Raylene began her testimony by sharing a story about her seventh-grade English teacher, who she said was “the best teacher I ever had.” According to Raylene, this teacher always came prepared, had unique learning plans for each student, and started the debate program at her school—the only debate program in the Pasadena Unified School District. In a moment of levity, Raylene, who participated in the debate program, testified that she loved being a part of the program, even though they placed last in competitions. Raylene described her seventh-grade English teacher as very engaged and effective, raising her class’ test scores to the highest scores in the district. Unfortunately, this highly

effective teacher was laid off as a result of a reduction in force. While discussing a grossly ineffective teacher that she had in fifth grade, Raylene recounted that "she would not teach, and she would come unprepared with no learning plan, and she would talk about her personal life, and also belittle other teachers and say that they were bad teachers, and one time she threw an overhead projector at the students…a piece flew off and hit a student on the head and he started crying.” Raylene emphasized the impact that this grossly ineffective teacher had on her: “It made me afraid, it made me not want to try or show up to school, and it was basically an opportunity to learn wasted, and it really put me behind my peers.” Finally, Raylene stated why she became a Plaintiff in the case: "I care about education, and I want to maybe return to public school and be with my friends, and I don’t want any other kids to have bad teachers.” Additional Testimony In addition to Plaintiffs’ testimony, the Court heard testimony from Nick

Melvoin, a former LAUSD teacher who was laid off multiple times under the “Last-in, First-out” (LIFO) Statute, and Dr. Dan Goldhaber, a Research Professor of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington, Bothell.” PUSD Chairman Scott Phelps told Beacon Media: "Of course we would love to not have to lay off by seniority as it really ties our hands and prevents us from making changes. "I hope that after all the appeals we will get a new system. Our local union, btw, after working with the PUSD admin. for a year on a new evaluation instrument for teachers, refused to approve a pilot of it by the agreed upon deadline and wants to stall for another year. The stalling is of course led by their CTA attorney who has wasted more time than anyone I know. We may tell PERB we are at impasse. Btw, I would support using student outcome data only for a max of 30% of a teacher's evaluation because I am leery of what overemphasis on standardized testing does to curriculum and instruction.”

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

Holden honors Monrovia’s Pam Fitzpatrick A longtime Monrovia business has been named Small Business of the Year for the 41st Assembly District. At the California Small Business Day ceremony in Sacramento today, Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) recognized Pam Fitzpatrick as owner of The Dollmakers Kattywompus. The annual awards program honors small businesses throughout the state. "I am pleased to honor Pam Fitzpatrick not only for all her hard work, but for her civic commitment as well," said Assemblymember Holden. "Pam is a success not only because she's a good businesswoman, but because she gives back to the community. Businesses like hers are the backbone of the community and it is important that we recognize their contributions to the economy of California." "I was both surprised

and honored to receive the phone call that our family business had won this award. And it makes me smile every time I think about it: it IS possible to pursue your dream and succeed, and it IS possible to do it with your family," said Pam Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick, the owner of The Dollmakers' Kattywompus, has been a part of the Monrovia business scene since 1991 when the store first opened in Old Town. Since then, her doll and retro toy store has expanded to offer music lessons and free Friday night concerts. Fitzpatrick is also very active in her community and has helped many non-profits by donating toys and giving of her time and energy. Her sister and co-owner, Jennifer Ranger accompanied her to Sacramento. She was nominated by Becky Shevlin, Mayor Pro Tem, City of Monrovia who stated, "Pam Fitzpatrick is beyond tireless

in her pursuit to not only promote her own family business but to also promote and protect the interests of other businesses in Monrovia Old Town."

Should you take a ‘summer vacation’ from the stock market? There’s an old saying with some stock investors: “Sell in May and go away.” The saying implies that investors should liquidate positions sometime in the month of May, take the summer off from the stock market, and invest again around Halloween. Those who support this concept suggest that the market has historically performed best in the period between November and April. The belief is that as the weather warms up, investors and traders pay less attention to the market, and performance fails to keep up with the long-term average for the stock market over this six-month period. It sounds simple, but does it make sense as part of your own investment strategy? Not necessarily. Here are five important reasons the “Sell in May and go away” concept may not be the best strategy: 1 – It is a strategy built around ‘timing’ the market The idea of selling most or all of your equity positions for a period is simply another form of trying to time the market. It is a tactic that can often backfire on individuals who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. If your expectation is that the market will always underperform during the summer months and always outperform during the November to April period, history does not back you up. What’s more, the historical average does not indicate that stocks generate negative returns from May to October, just that they have often underperformed the other six-month period. In reality, there have been years when stocks have generated strong performance between May and October. There is simply no way to predict what will happen in any given year, which make the concept of timing the market very difficult. 2 – Not all investments

perform the same There may be particular stocks or sectors of the market that perform better than the market as a whole in the May-to-October period. If you sold positions in stocks that were still performing well, you might sacrifice an opportunity to capture favorable returns. Anytime you sell an investment that was intended to be a long-term holding, you take a risk that you’ll miss out on some positive performance. 3 – The costs of selling may outweigh the benefits Moving money into and out of investments generally costs money. There may be trading costs on one or both ends of the transaction. In addition, if your investments generated capital gains, you will owe taxes on those gains (if the money is held in a taxable account). Also, if you held those investments for less than a year, they would be considered shortterm capital gains and would be taxed at your ordinary income tax rate, which means you could potentially forfeit a large percentage of the return you earned. 4 – You won’t collect dividends If stocks or funds you own pay dividends, you won’t be collecting them once you have sold out of the position. Dividend-paying stocks in your portfolio generate returns that aren’t affected by the ups-anddowns of the market. Selling these holdings means you are again sacrificing a portion of the return you could have earned. 5 – Discipline is required If you sell your positions in May, will you truly purchase them back by the end of October? What if those stocks became more expensive and you lost money in the process? What if the market suffered a major downturn just before November (the

80%

of U.S. adults report looking at advertising when reading the paper

biggest market crashes in history have occurred in October) and the environment seemed unstable. Would you still be willing to invest into that kind of market? A better approach from a disciplined perspective may be to continue making regular investments irrespective of timing or market conditions, and try to accumulate wealth over time by consistently saving and keeping your money invested. Don’t veer from your long-term strategy Investment theories like the “Sell in May and go away” concept can be fun to contemplate, but the big question is whether they are truly practical as part of your own strategy. If you have a long-term investment plan, the best approach is to stick with it, regardless of market conditions. Trying to choose the right time to buy or sell can be difficult, even for professionals who invest for a living. Consider working with a financial advisor who can help you invest in a way that is most comfortable for you and consistent with your long-term goals. Jean D.

California Philharmonic welcomes special guest Sarah Culberson for its 2014 summer season opener John Williams & Friends, which takes place June 28 At Santa Anita Race Track and June 29 at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Culberson's gripping reading of ‘Dry Your Tears – Afrika’ from the epic film Amistad, in both the original Mende (a major language in Sierra Leone, and the native language of both Culberson’s African ancestors and many, if not all, of the captured slaves aboard the original ship Amistad) and the English translation, will introduce director Steven Spielberg’s powerful reenactment of an 1839 shipboard slave rebellion. The score, composed by Williams, was nominated for both the Academy Award and Grammy for Best Original Score. “We are thrilled that Sarah Culberson is joining California Philharmonic

for ‘Dry Your Tears, Afrika’ during our season opener,” said California Philharmonic Maestro Victor Vener, who idea it was to incorporate Sarah into the performance in order to make an even greater impact for the listener. “Sarah possesses a strong and powerful presence that captivates audiences and lends an emotional authenticity to the piece. Her beautiful recitation of the poem is the perfect compliment to full orchestra and choir.” An American woman of Mende ancestry, Culberson discovered in 2004 that she is the biological daughter of one of Sierra Leone’s chieftains and, by birthright, is officially a Princess. Adopted when she was just one year old by a West Virginia couple and raised in the United States with little knowledge of her West African ancestry, Culberson co-authored a book

with Tracy Trivas entitled 'A Princess Found' detailing her extraordinary story. The concert also features father and son duo Dennis and Max Karmazyn performing the Theme from Schindler’s List, in a special arrangement for cello and violin, created especially by Max for himself and his father, as well as the finale from Brahms’ Double Concerto. In addition, the concert includes 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 highlights from Karl Orff’s Carmina Burana. And on top off all that, the concert ends in typical Cal Phil style with Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. Audiences throughout Southern California have options to attend extreme-

Judy Chu commemorates NRA bill introduced last week Nature lovers from all over the San Gabriel Valley came together at Peck Road Park in El Monte on Saturday to commemorate the introduction of Rep. Judy Chu’s conservation bill into Congress. The bill – known as the San Gabriel National Recreation Act – would designate the San Gabriel Mountains, river corridors and Puente Hills as a national recreation area, a spokesman from Chu’s office said in a statement. “The legislation would allow the National Park Service to coordinate stakeholders at the federal, state and local levels throughout the region, and contribute to community-based, community-driven projects focused on sustainable recreation, education and the preservation of local habitat and history,” the statement said. Chu said she was pleased to have introduced the bill. “The Los Angeles region is one of the most park poor regions of the country,” she said. “We face two challenges as a result: there are very few options for Angelenos to en-

By SHEL SEGAL joy the outdoors, and the options we do have are under immense stress from overuse. After a decade of consideration and collaboration, I am proud to introduce legislation protecting these mountains that’s consistent with our community needs and priorities.” Belinda Faustinos, cochair of the organization San Gabriel Mountains Forever, said Saturday was just a great day for her. “This is just phenomenal for me,” Faustinos said. “I’ve been working on this for more than 10 years, as well, it’s just so exciting. I don’t even have the words.” She added getting this bill introduced in Congress has been a group effort. “We have lots of great partners who have been working on this effort for years: San Gabriel Valley Conservation Corps, Los Angeles Conservation Corps, that have been working on this with us jointly over the past 10 years,” she said. “And they’ve actually done work specifically in this park, to help improve it. Having parks that are close to home are critical.”

Faustinos also said her organization’s partners are really to thank for getting the bill where it is. “What I really appreciate about all of our local partners is that they just don’t come to an event and show their T-shirts, but they have been involved in this for years and they go up for hikes regularly, they engage with us on all of the different policy issues,” she said. “They’re very, very vested in this and they know how important it is for their communities.” While the bill has been introduced, Faustinos said it would be foolish to think it will become law anytime soon. “It’s going to be a challenge to get it through Congress,” she said. “We all know this Congress has been a little dysfunctional, especially when it comes to public lands. I’ve been in the environmental world for 30 years and I just know that everything takes time.” (Shel Segal can be reached at ssegal@beaconmedianews.com. He can be followed via Twitter @segallanded.)

Senator Liu honors local women for ‘exceptional abilities’ The winners of the “2014 Women Mean Business” awards were announced on Friday at a luncheon at the Pasadena Hilton Hotel. Honored by state Sen. Carol Liu (D-La Cañada, Flintridge), the women were chosen by having exceptional abilities have contributed to the economic vitality, diversity, and quality of life of the 25th state Senate District. Liu said she was glad to be honoring this slate of women. “I am very excited for the awardees and I hope that the message that we’re trying to get across will help the framework of where women are today in our society,” she said. Liu added the women’s movement is not yet finished. “While we have made great strides, we have a long way to go,” Liu said. One of the honorees, Anne Lansing who oversees the housing program for the homeless in Pasadena, said she was thrilled to be recognized at the luncheon.

By SHEL SEGAL “I’m really excited and really honored,” she said. “Sometimes particularly when you’re working in the public sector it can feel to a degree somewhat thankless and to be recognized at this level is very nice.” Dixie Noonan, senior advisor to the Shriver Report who gave the keynote address, said she was impressed with who was receiving the awards. “They have picked an amazing lineup of award recipients this year,” Noonan said. “It’s all women making an impact in business in their community. I think we’re going to make sure women get the credit they deserve. Today is a good day to start that.” This year’s honorees included: Outstanding Small Businesswomen: Debra Nielsen (Pasadena) and Yvette-Janine Pardo (Pasadena); Outstanding Junior Businesswomen: Elizabeth Yang (Pasadena); Outstanding Corporate Women: Robyn Grandy

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

The Power of Trust Trust is essential in how a group operates and cooperates. Teams fused by the bond of trust generate tremendous results and successfully navigate difficult times. A team embodied by trust is cohesive, productive and loyal. Without trust a team is simply a collection of individuals who happen to work together. While their efforts may achieve results there’s often miscommunication, conflict and discord along the way. A team will never reach full their potential without the foundation of trust. Trust means that team members rely upon each other. They trust each other to be helpful, honest, communicate openly and keep the best interest of the team at heart. Let’s look at some strategies to infuse trust into your team. Lead by Example: Inspire trust by being trustworthy and rewarding trustworthy behavior in others. Demonstrate your trust by relinquishing decision making, admitting to problems, sharing information that’s both good and bad, and making decisions for the

good of the group. Mistakes are Okay: When people work together mistakes are bound to happen. It’s a natural part of life. Mistakes that are met by blame deteriorate morale and undermine trust. In fact, trust cannot exist if mistakes are handled in such a way. Turn the table by encouraging your team to look at mistakes in a constructive way that helps everyone learn. Tell the Truth: Even when it hurts. Even when the news is not good. When times are tough find a way to tell the truth in a way that gives people the information they need and that elicits an open dialogue. Truth telling doesn’t have to be harsh, instead it can be considerate and respectful if done from a place of honesty and openness. Respect, Integrity and Cooperation: Encourage and reward behaviors associated with respect, integrity and cooperation. Trust can develop only if team members respect each other, feel a sense of integrity and experience genuine cooperativeness. Partnerships: Focus on creating the feeling of part-

nership among your team members. When people feel like they’re on an equal footing with others they feel more connected with the team. Encourage employees to treat others as respected partners. Appreciation and Praise: People feel motivated and valued when their good work is noticed. Not only that, it’s another way to infuse trust into your team. Appreciation and praise means you noticed the good work that you entrusted them to do. It’s also a sign that you’ve given them credit for it and that’s another way to generate trust. Now, compare these strategies with how your team operates. Better yet, ask them to do the comparison. If there are gaps then work with your team to collaboratively develop strategies to bridge them. The power of trust will only further strengthen the power of your team. Heather Backstrom is an executive coach, leadership development consultant and speaker. She has a doctorate in organizational leadership from Pepperdine University. She can be reached at www.heatherbackstrom.com.

McDade settlements net family over $1Million Continued from page 1

Pasadena police officers who were responding to a 911 armed robbery call. McDade was shot and killed by Pasadena Police officers Mathew Griffin and Jeffrey Newlen in March 2012 following a 911 call of 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 settlements were finalized June 16, 2014, with no finding of fault or liability by the City, the Pasadena Police Department and its officers. The settlements are a final resolution to the lawsuits in which settlements were reached in principle last week, but the terms could not be made public until the agreements were fully finalized and executed, including payments to both parents.

The agreements included monetary settlements for the parents, who, in turn, agreed to dismiss their lawsuits against the City and Pasadena police officers. Ms. Slaughter has received $850,000 and Mr. McDade has received $187,500. All parties agreed to absorb their own legal fees. Kenneth McDade said through his attorney that "Although I am satisfied with the settlement, there is no amount, large or small, that will bring Kendrec back to his mother, who he lived with, or back to me who he was running to the night he was hunted down by cowards with badges. More importantly, I am happy with the attorney's work that created a real conversation about change in police policy in the City of Pasadena and who kept Kendrec's name alive while there have been even more killings of young Black men since Kendrec was killed over 2 1/2 years ago. I hope the conversations about change do not end with the discussion of money. This was never about money to

me; I still want the officers responsible for my son's death to go to jail. I hope the D.A., who was elected after the so-called "justified" shooting, re-examines the unsworn stories versus stories given under oath in depositions and rethinks bringing criminal charges against them. I hope the focus will be on the individual officers now, and on having an independent oversight committee on all police shootings made up of people from all walks of life." Additional information about the settlements can be found in the settlement agreements, which are a matter of public record.

Sheriff's Special Enforcement Bureau particpates in Annual Maritime Tactical Response Exercise On Tuesday, June 17, 2014 the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department participated in the Coastal Trident 2014 (CT- 14) maritime exercise along with more than 90 local, state, and federal emergency response agencies along the Southern California Coast. The Coastal Trident exercise was intended to explore the homeland security, homeland defense, emergency response, and emergency management issues with the threat of a rogue vessel targeting critical port and maritime infrastructure. The exercise was sponsored by federal and private sector research funds to study processes, concepts of employment, and technology applications. The exercise represented a collaborative opportunity for federal, state, and local emergency response and management organizations to validate plans, capabilities, and increase proficiency in an operationally relevant scenario. The Exercise goals were: -Reinforce federal, state, local, and private sector partnerships -Strengthen existing emergency response and management plans, systems, and Capabilities applicable to

maritime response operations -Evaluate inter-operable systems to enhance maritime domain awareness, threat identification and early warning, and inter-operable communication -Identify future planning, acquisition, training, and exercise needs related to the integrated response to a rouge vessel incident The Coastal Trident Exercise was coordinated by the Naval Postgraduate School, Center for Asymmetric Warfare. The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (LASD) deployed personnel from its Homeland Security Division to demonstrate a maritime

tactical response capability to an incident involving armed individuals possessing Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) materials in a boat between Catalina and the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. LASD boats and aircraft responded to the incident and disabled the intruder boat. LASD HazMat and Special Weapons Team personnel boarded the boat, detained the intruders and safeguarded the WMD materials. This exercise is an annual event which is being conducted strictly for training purposes. It is not in response to any known threat to the ports or the region.

of matching Andrew Carnegie’s support of 2,509 free public libraries around the turn of the 19th to 20th century, they undertook an ambitious plan and - this being the 21st century – gave it and registered the name: “Little Free Libraries.” By January of 2014, the total number of registered Little Free Libraries in the world was conservatively estimated to be nearly 15,000, with thousands more being built. In April 2014, Villa Gardens resident Pat Ganje was surfing the Web, happened upon the Little Free Libraries story and shared it immediately with executive director Dmitry Estrin who saw in this a way for Villa Gardens to share duplicates of books in their library. Luis SantaCruz from the Villa Gardens maintenance crew volunteered to design and build a “library”,

maintenance coordinator Cindy Barajas and director of resident services Silvia Samuelson all joined Dmitry in getting the project off and running, and Pat Ganje agreed to manage it. The Villa Gardens Little Free Library (LFL) is now an official and registered member of this world-wide organization and its name and address show up on the Little Free Library website’s world-wide map. It is placed in an easily accessible and visible site in front of Villa Gardens at 842 E. Villa Street and awaits any and all visitors to take a book, which need not be returned, and to contribute one of their own. You will find more details about the Little Free Library organization with pictures, maps and other fascinating information onhttp://littlefreelibrary. org/.

Missing Arcadia firefighter Continued from page 1

2014, Arcadia Firefighter/ Paramedics, Mike Herdman and Taylor Byars, became separated while on a weekend camping trip in the Sespe Wilderness Area outside of Fillmore, CA. Mr. Byars and Mr. Herdman were preparing to set up camp on Friday evening when Mr. Herdman’s dog ran away from the camp. Barefoot and wearing only shorts and a tee shirt, Mr. Herdman pursued the dog, followed by Mr. Byars. A short time later, the two men became separated. Mr. Byars made his way back to the campsite in the dark.

When Mr. Herdman had not returned to the camp by daylight, Mr. Byars began to search for him. Despite his best efforts and after nearly two days of searching, Mr. Byars made his way out of the wilderness through miles of extremely rough terrain and heavy vegetation and reported Mr. Herdman’s disappearance to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office in Fillmore on Sunday evening. Mike Herdman, 36 years old, is a 7 year veteran of the Arcadia Fire Department.

Our farmers come from within a five-hour drive, considerably lessening the “carbon footprint” of your food source! Farmers from San Diego to Fresno, Santa Maria to the Salton Sea, attend the markets here weekly to bring you the freshest fruits and vegetables available for your eating pleasures. Varieties that you may not find in regular chain stores because these are picked at their freshest and don’t have to spend days getting to your store where they then wait for you to come along. These small farmers represent less than .02 percent of agriculture grown for the rest of the U.S. and the world! Agriculture is second

only to tourism in California industry. Learning to eat seasonally and locally gives plenty of variety to your daily diet and by learning who grows your food and where it comes from is what the term “Slow Food” nation is all about. Great meals begin with wonderful flavors, beauty, abundance, and pride of place---the small farms of California and farmers tending them. It is also a celebration of food traditions, emphasizing seasonal and regional qualities. And a celebration of growing produce with sustainable methods, traceable to its source. Whether it in your own kitchen, or in a restaurant like this one, seek local foods, flavors, and friends to share them. Hope to see you at a local market soon!

would allow the National Park Service (NPS) to coordinate stakeholders at the Federal, State, and local level throughout the region, and contribute to community-based, community-driven projects focused on sustainable recreation, education, and the preservation of local habitat and history.” Not everyone is happy about the idea--including the city of Monrovia, which rejected Chu’s plan on May 6 which many refer to as a “land grab.” Lead by Ret. Senator Dick Mountjoy, who resides in Monrovia, the community came out to the May 6th Monrovia City Council meeting to voice concerns about Congresswoman Judy Chu’s National Recreation Area legislation. Mountjoy warned the Council, “This is a bad idea. You don’t know what is in it and you don’t even have a set map yet. People don’t know the boundaries.” Mountjoy echoed resident Fred Bowden’s concern about the bond Monrovia residents passed 14 years ago to buy wilderness areas above the city. This is a 30-year bond for $10 million that the residents are obligated to pay off. He said the council is giving away property to the federal government and he and the citizens of Monrovia are going to have to continue to pay on that bond for another 15 or 16 years. Bowden said he also donated property to the Monrovia wilderness area, not to the federal government. Tom Adams, Monrovia Council Member joined in pointing out Monrovia had asked the federal government at that time to partner up and join in their efforts to preserve

the Monrovia hillside and wilderness areas. The feds declined, so Monrovia residents did it themselves with the $10 million bond. Now that the land has been purchased we have someone who is a willing partner… Why wouldn’t they be? It doesn’t cost them anything, said Adams. Adams said he had been to a meeting with Chu and was surprised when she said part of the reason her legislation is needed is because we have no maps of the trails in the San Gabriel Mountains. He asked her about the maps and books the Santa Anita Historical Society has and she told him she had never heard of the organization. Adams said he was shocked that Chu professed to be so knowledgeable about the San Gabriels and wants to save them but knows so little about them. Despite Mayor Lutz’s push to move forward with support for the NRA legislation, the Council voted 5-0 to send a letter to Congresswoman Chu opposing Monrovia being in the National Recreation Area. Council voted 5-0 to support that motion with Mayor Lutz qualifying her vote noting there are questions she would still like answers to regarding the NRA and the impact on Monrovia. Based on the longstanding unwritten rule in Monrovia that council members don’t put Monrovia’s name on anything that is controversial without coming back to the body for support, Adams asked the Council’s representative to the COG, Mayor Mary Ann Lutz, write a letter rescinding her vote supporting the NRA.

Alternate motion was carried to copy the SGV COG on the letter to Congresswoman Chu opposing Monrovia’s inclusion in the National Recreation Area. Motion passed 5-0. But Judy Chu marched on despite the oppositions and continued with her NRA plan on the house floor. “The Los Angeles region is one of the most park poor regions of the country. We face two challenges as a result: there are very few options for Angelenos to enjoy the outdoors, and the options we do have are under immense stress from overuse,” said Rep. Chu. “After a decade of consideration and collaboration, I am proud to introduce legislation protecting these mountains that’s consistent with our community needs and priorities.” Congresswoman Chu undertook an extensive public outreach process to ensure local influence and control over the final product. Her efforts include four stakeholder roundtables with elected officials, water, sanitation and utilities, business groups and Chambers of Commerce, and environmental advocates, as well as a town hall for constituents from all over the San Gabriel Valley to voice their opinions and concerns. “This has been a community effort from the very beginning,” Rep. Chu continued. “My bill empowers local communities to collaborate on recreational plans and projects in ways that don’t exist today. The vision of this NRA began with the community and it will be realized by the community.” Additional Members who are original cosponsors of Congresswoman Chu’s legislation include Representative Adam Schiff (CA-28), and Representative Tony Cárdenas (CA-29). They released the following statements: “Representative Chu's legislation is an important step forward in a decadeslong effort to preserve open space and increase access to nature across the Southland,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank). “As the National Park Service finalizes their recommendations on the expansion or creation of a National Recreation Area in the Rim of the Valley as well, I look forward to continuing

our combined efforts to ensure the preservation of wildlife corridors, recreational opportunities and rare ecosystems throughout our region.” “In urban areas like Los Angeles, we must treasure and protect the open spaces that so many in our nation take for granted,” said Cárdenas. “My friend Judy Chu has taken a wonderful step in that direction, by creating a recreation area that is not pavement and swing sets, but instead the natural wonder of our mountain landscapes. I am proud to add my voice of support to environmentalists, nature groups and families through the Los Angeles area, and I urge my colleagues to pass this Act quickly, so that Californians can begin to enjoy the San Gabriel National Recreation Area as soon as possible, and for generations to come.” However, a former Mayor states: "As a former Mayor of Glendora, I, and several other elected and appointed officials in the San Gabriel Valley, have been talking about Congresswoman Judy Chu’s National Recreation Area (NRA) legislation and two other pieces, Wilderness and Wild & Scenic Rivers legislation. No official titles or bill numbers have been provided at this point. These pieces of legislation are the product of a 9-year San Gabriel Watershed & Mountains Special Resource Study presented April 2013. Initially, the Study proposed the San Gabriel Watershed Area be incorporated into the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy led by Joe Edmiston.

Runaway: The story of an outlaw world premiere during Hollywood Fringe Festival

Judy Chu on NRA Continued from page 18

fiscal oversight. 2. The conservancy's staff has been cut in half. Its capital budget, which swelled to $80 million in state bonds during the 1980s, now has no unencumbered funds left. A $324,000 appropriation in this year's state budget was needed to keep it afloat. 3. In a Land Swap deal, Bob Hope would have sold and donated thousands of acres in Los Angeles and Ventura counties for public open space. In return, the federal government would give national parkland to a developer for a road to Hope's secluded Jordan Ranch in Ventura County. That access would allow luxury homes to be built on the land, which government park authorities have sought to acquire for years.4. What role has eminent domain played in SMMC and Joe Edmiston’s acquisitions? 5. What is the financial status of the SMMC now? More concern about the Whittier Oil Revenue Land Swap Deal. Prop A bond money purchased 1,280 acres in 1994 for $17 million intended for open space/conservation. In 2008, Whittier voted to lease 7 acres of that land to an oil company for up to $100 million a year. Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority, a regional government entity, dedicated to preserving open space and wildlife, after filing a lawsuit, agreed to settle and is to receive up to $11.25 million a year from Whittier’s royalties from the oil. The MRCA will use the money to buy land elsewhere . L.A. Times 8-17-13 said the Board of Supervisors will have final say on this one. Additional concerns: 1. Water Rights a. Water agencies requested an audit of Federal water rights in the SG Mountains before legislation takes effect to establish a benchmark to measure impact of proposed recreational projects (Chu’s response: After the legislation passes) b. Technical review process when new projects are proposed be included c. Water supply, water quality and water facilities should not be treated as coequals with recreation d. Water replenishment costs could double or quadruple if the current level and quality of ground water is not

-Photo by Terry Miller

2. Private Property Rights a. What role does eminent domain play in acquiring the National Recreation Area? (Chu’s response: Specific maintained 1. Borders of the National Recreation Area are not specifically defined and should disclose: 2. Impact on adjacent uses absent buffer zones 3. Increased insurance costs for residential and businesses within the NRA zone Disclosure 4. requirements prior to sale and impact on property values boundaries after legislation passes) 3. Local Control a. Boundaries of NRA are not specifically defined therefore public comment is restricted b. In place of a legal description, the legislation says a map is substituted [having the same force and effect as if included in this act] not clearly indicating specific boundaries but allows the federal government to “correct any clerical and typographical errors” NRA establishes two entities to make decisions concerning access and use of the Area and any future "improvements" or development. Members are appointees of the federal government, not directly elected by the public that will be impacted. San Gabriel National Recreation Area Partnership includes 17 people headed by Secretary of Agriculture and National Park Service

along with several state secretaries with 3 years to create a Management Plan San Gabriel National Recreation Area Public Advisory Council includes 21 members appointed by the Secretaries of the Partnership to represent interests of the NRA and adjacent area. A quorum of this group is 10 members and can make decisions even if the full Council has not been appointed. Less than 50% and not directly elected by the public. The partnership may use Federal funds under a section not defined in the legislation and then give that money in the form of grants to the State, political subdivisions of the State, nonprofit organizations, and other persons. Other persons? Who is that? Not defined. The public advisory council shall cease to exist 5 years after the management plans are completed or whenever the appointed members of the Partnership think is appropriate. How does this proposal improve what we in the San Gabriel Valley have already done? Who will oversee or control those plans after preparation and initial implementation of the Management Plan? What we have here is a group of people not directly elected by the public picking a committee and leader and establishing rules of operation guided by a federal bureaucracy all of whom will dictate to those within various jurisdictional boundaries who didn’t elect them.”

Hollywood Fringe Festival audiences have not one, but two, gripping reasons to attend the world premiere of the Nick DeRuve play Runaway: The Story Of An Outlaw. In addition to presenting a 35-minute strong play which has an old outlaw reminiscing on his one true love and pondering if a life lived alone is a life lived at all, Runaway: The Story Of An Outlaw, also sets the stage for a full-length feature film. Currently in postproduction and marking U.S. and Thailand based production and servicing company Benetone Hillin Entertainment’s entry in to the artistic film genre,The Runaway further shares the dramatic story about an old fugitive, finally discovered by the law, as he reflects on his younger years of excitement, adventure and heartbreak. Producers of the film include DeRuve, Daemon

Hillin and Diondra Meravi. Executive Producers are Richard Hench, Rachvin Narula and Kulthep Narula. DeRuve wrote and directs both the play and the feature film based on his original story. Runaway: The Story Of An Outlaw features an ensemble cast including Brandon Elonzae and Richard Hench, who also portray the younger and older version of the fugitive in the film adaptation. The play, by Read Between The Lines

Productions and presented by The Complex Hollywood located at 6476 Santa Monica Boulevard, is scheduled to run four more times throughout the festival on June 21, 22, 26 and 27. Tickets are $15.00 and can be purchased online by visiting www. hollywoodfringe.org. The Hollywood Fringe Festival is an annual, open-access, communityderived event celebrating freedom of expression and collaboration in the performing arts community.

Business groups urge Metro to include Azusa to Claremont in Foothill Gold Line In a letter sent to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority today, the San Gabriel Valley Economic Partnership and thirteen chambers of commerce and organizations across the region urged the Metro Board to amend the Short Range Transportation Plan to include the Azusa to Claremont leg of the Gold Line Foothill Extension. The letter outlined the importance of an effective transportation network to the vitality of the San Gabriel region, citing the alleviation of traffic congestion and affordable travel alternatives for local residents as benefits of extending the Gold Line. “We are concerned that the Metro will not keep its promise to voters who approved Measure R to complete the Gold Line to Claremont,” commented Cynthia Kurtz, President and CEO of San Gabriel Valley Economic Partnership, “The completion of this project is vital to this region where nearly one-fifth of Los Angeles County residents reside.” The letter indicates that the Azusa to Claremont extension is environmentally cleared and ready for design and build in 2017. The extension has the potential to be completed by 2022, a date comfortably within the timeline of the Short Range Transportation Plan. Signers of the letter include the Azusa, Duarte, La Verne, Arcadia, Monrovia, Claremont, Pasadena, South

Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27) visited the Naval Base Ventura County in Oxnard, California over the weekend, a temporary shelter where unaccompanied children are being transferred and housed. President Obama recently announced a multi-agency directive to respond to the surge of unaccompanied children crossing the border without a parent or legal guardian. The Naval Base is expected to house up to 600 children, ranging from ages 13 to 17. “Seeing the children

today hit home for me that this is a humanitarian crisis that requires a humanitarian solution,” said Rep. Chu. “These children made the life or death decision to leave their home and cross the border alone -- to flee the extreme violence and crime that has taken a foothold in Central America. Their safety and addressing the underlying international factors causing this crisis is of upmost concern. I look forward to exploring humanitarian solutions during the House Judiciary hearing on this issue

next week.” The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has taken steps to address this issue with the goal to safely and quickly transport the unaccompanied children to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), as the law requires. On June 1, at the direction of President Obama, a Unified Coordination Group, with the Federal Management Agency (FEMA) at its head, was established to leverage resources to provide humanitarian relief to the ongoing situation.

Rosemead considers tour bus ban By SHEL SEGAL

The Rosemead City Council will be deciding if it should ban the picking up and dropping off of passengers from city streets by tour and casino buses, according to a published report. This is because the city has been getting complaints regarding trash, safety issues and lack of parking, according to that report. If the council approves this ordinance, bus operators will “face a $500 fine for the first violation. The fine is $1,000 for repeat offenses,” according to that report. The proposed ordinance has built-in exceptions, including “emergencies, dropping off or picking up passengers at hotels where they are registered guests and ferrying people to and from specific cultural or entertainment

events in Rosemead,” according to that report. The proposed ordinance would allow these buses to park, load and unload passengers on private property or parking lots only if they have received permission from the property owner and the tenants and the bus operators would need to get a business license from the city of Rosemead, according to that report. As there have been complaints about private buses in the past, they have increased in number since the city of San Gabriel passed a similar ordinance that “restricted private buses from stopping on their city streets,” according to that report. In addition, that has also increased the number of buses in Rosemead, according to that report. The buses contribute

to the problems of littering and traffic and pedestrian safety. Also, bus passengers have been criticized as they park their cars all day on residential streets, according to that report. The traffic commission has reviewed the material after it was looked at by city staff and has brought its recommendation to the council, according to that report. The city sent about 100 notices “to private bus operators about the ordinance but haven’t heard yet from the companies,” according to that report. In addition, if the ordinance passes the city plans to use “the 30 days before the law takes effect to spread the word to private bus operators,” according to that report.

Le Mans drivers prep with CXC Motion Pro II Motor Racing Simulators for historic annual competition in France Practice makes perfect, but practice in the world of motorsports is an expensive, time-consuming and often futile endeavor as tracks and circuits are often unavailable for intensive workouts prior to a major race. That is why so many professional and amateur racers rely on modern technology to train 'virtually' for competition. This year, more than ever, many top drivers are taking on the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours on June 14-15 by utilizing Motion Pro II racing simulators designed and built in Los Angeles by CXC Simulations to aid their quest for victory. Drivers using the Motion Pro II to train for this year's Le Mans include: Patrick Dempsey, Patrick Long and Joe Foster (Porsche 911 RSR, Car #77, GTEAm Class); Oliver Jarvis (Audi R18 E-Tron Quattro,

Car #3, P1-H Class); Nick Tandy (Porsche 911 RSR, Car #91, GTE-Pro Class); Richard Lietz (Porsche 911 RSR, Car #92, GTEPro Class); Stephen Wyatt (Ferrari 458 Italia, Car #81, GTE-Am Class). Ranging in price from $50,000 to $80,000, and built to sync with several different software providers, the Motion Pro II supplies a hi-tech motion delivery system, ultra-powerful force feed controls, and pressure-sensitive pedals that combine to deliver a realistic experience across virtual cars, planes, trucks or helicopters. The system is meticulously engineered so people can feel the slightest detail of a car's behavior and every idiosyncrasy of individual tracks. The simulator comes standard with a screen system of full 1080p resolution and a 60-degree field

Pasadena Unified teachers receive local and national accolades 2014 Pasadena Unified Teachers of Excellence The Pasadena Rotary Club honored five PUSD educators as “Teachers of Excellence” during their annual ceremony in May that honors teachers who excel in their profession. This year’s honorees are: Ravishanth Dev Anandhan (Sierra Madre Middle School), Mellason Chidester, (Longfellow Elementary School), Rose Evans (Pasadena High School), Maria A. Soto (Willard Elementary School) and Kaiulani Sallas Venable (Jefferson Elementary School). The Teachers of Excellence program is a collaborative effort between the Rotary Club, the PUSD, and the United Teachers of Pasadena. The Rotary Club invites all school principals and parent associations to nominate teachers for this honor, and a selection committee composed of administrators, principals, Rotarians and previous winners reviews the entries. This year’s Teachers of Excellence recipients have distinguished themselves as teachers who engage students in learning, create an exciting classroom environment, and have a positive impact on the future of PUSD students. Finalists submitted an essay, and a video, filmed and produced by PUSD’s KLRN television station, to demonstrate classroom activity and discuss their personal experiences, perspectives, and goals. Teachers of Excellence winners were honored during an awards ceremony May 21. One winner, Mellason Chidester, will have the additional honor of being named the PUSD nominee for Los Angeles County Teacher of the Year. Video vignettes about each of the winners can be found at gopusd.com/greatstaff. Pasadena Unified District Math Coach Laureen-Nadirah Nayo Named To National Dream Team – Fifteen California teachers spent June 4-7 in New Orleans participating in TeachFest, a unique professional development event focused on creating highquality Common Core curricular resources. The educators attended the event as part of LearnZillion’s national Dream Team of 200 talented math and English language arts (ELA) teach-

ers.

At TeachFest, the Dream Team kicked-off a rigorous summer-long collaboration with educators from around the country – deepening their understanding of the Common Core State Standards and gathering best practices as input for their work with LearnZillion. Dream Team members have now returned to their respective districts to continue their work as part of a LearnZillion-facilitated digital professional learning community (PLC). Participants from California included: Cheryl Shay, Berryessa Union School District; Debbie Neighbors, Berryessa Union School District; Debi Bober, Long Beach Unified School District; Helen Papadopoulos, Walnut Valley Unified School District; Jaime Bonato, San Juan Unified School District; Kim Bobadilla, Davis Joint Unified School District; Kristen Miller, Natomas Unified School District; Laureen-Nadirah Nayo, Pasadena Unified School District; Lisa Stone, Santa Clara County Office of Education; Marcello Sgambelluri, Santa Clara Unified School District; Miriam Hannig, Union Elementary School District; Nikole Gaines Reina-Guerra, Davis Joint Unified School District; Rebecca Scarfone, Temecula Valley Unified School District; Ryan Keeley, Berkeley Unified School District; Ashleigh Swiontek, graduate student. “Like every member of our Dream Team, these educators embraced this challenging professional learning opportunity because they are passionate about developing their practice and scaling their impact for the benefit of teachers and students around the world,” said Eric Westendorf, LearnZillion CEO. “It is an honor to work with and to champion talented, impact-oriented educators like this group from California.” The diverse 2014 Dream Team members were selected from a competitive pool of 4,000 applicants. They represent 42 states, three countries (U.S., Singapore and Tunisia) and over 2,300 years of teaching experience, ranging from two to 42 years in the classroom. Pasadena Unified Teachers To Take Part In Marine Research Project In Tahiti This Summer

Two Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) teachers will be conducting research in Tahiti this summer alongside marine biologists from top California universities. Washington Elementary STEM Magnet teachers Margaret (Marge) Blackford and Amethyst Juknavorian will be immersed in the environment of scientific research as part of the Moorea Coral Reef Long Term Ecological Research (MCR LTER) project. The MCR LTER is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded project with marine scientists from several UC & CSU sites conducting research to understand the effects on coral reefs due to natural and human events via data collection and analysis. The research takes place at UC Berkeley’s Gump South Pacific Research Station on the island of Moorea, French Polynesia. Over the past decade a tremendous amount of raw data has been collected and catalogued. MCR LTER has partnered with Washington Elementary in PUSD since 2007 to bring marine science education to district students and teachers. In 2014 MCR LTER conducted a workshop at UC Santa Barbara (UCSB) for teachers from Washington, Jackson, Madison, Cleveland and Field Elementary Schools. MCR LTER desires to further collaborate with public education to share data, develop curriculum and inspire students and teachers. NSF & UCSB realize that the sustainability and preservation of ecologies is dependent on relevance to K-12 education. The impact of their work will be carried out with direct connection to teachers and students. Blackford and Juknavorian will join MCR LTER marine scientists in Moorea for 20 days: 10 days on the Kilo Moana research ship and 10 days at the Gump Research Station. They will be blogging, interviewing and bringing an educator’s experience to the work. Following the summer research experience, the teachers will work with Washington Elementary’s STEM Coordinator, Jodie West, to develop lessons and student projects that can be provided to MCR LTER’s library for free teacher use.

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.

HUNTINGTON DR.

At age 91, Lee Meadows is strong and independent, a retired Food Administrator for the United States Marine Corps. His eyesight was deteriorating due to Dry Macular Degeneration. Mr. Meadows dear wife lives in a separate care facility. As his eyesight worsened, Mr. Meadows began to fear that he would lose the ability to safely drive himself to visit her every day, or even to write checks and read important mail. “Eventually,” he lamented, “I will be completely blind from this.”

The MYTH De-Bunked

Dr. Richard J. Shuldiner, Low Vision Optometrist, of Low Vision Optometry of Southern California corrected the record about Macular Degeneration and also provided a solution for Mr. Meadows. “I re-assured him that as distressing as it seemed, Macular Degeneration never causes total blindness. While it affects the central vision, he will always have his peripheral vision.” Dr. Shuldiner prescribed strong “PRISMATIC” glasses for everyday reading and writing, and another pair of “BIOPIC TELESCOPIC” glasses that allow Mr. Meadows to drive safely. “I can spend time with my wife, and run regular errands safely. I am very relieved,” says Mr. Meadows.

Happy patient Lee Meadows, 91, wearing new prescription glasses.

California successfully concludes field test of new assessments Smarter Balanced Field Test has concluded, capping 12 weeks of test-driving new computer-based assessments that will be fully operational next year, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced. More than 3.1 million California students—among four million nationwide—took part in the tryout of the new assessments. “Thanks to this trial run, California’s students and schools are headed into our new assessments next year with confidence about what they can expect,” Torlakson said. “The field test gave us an opportunity to measure the quality of test items, determine our technological readiness, and experience a whole new way of testing. Now we know that the system as a whole is in very strong shape, and we know where local challenges lie in time to address them.” Student responses from California, 20 other states, and the Virgin Islands will undergo a rigorous evaluation process to gauge the accuracy and fairness of the nearly 20,000 test questions before the Smarter Balanced assessment becomes operational in the spring of 2015. This is to ensure that the Common Core-aligned assessments are valid, reliable, and fair measurements of college- and career-readiness for all students. The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) is enlisting participants who will help determine achievement levels, also known as performance levels, for each grade and subject area through both an In-Person Panel and an

Online Panel. SBAC will convene approximately 500 educators from the member states to determine these levels. Like other member states, the California Department of Education (CDE) and California higher education segments have recruited California educators to be included in the SBAC In-Person Panel. The selected participants will be assigned to a specific segment depending on their content area expertise, experience, and/or grade levels taught. The Online Panel will allow for broad participation by parents, teachers, school and district administrators, college faculty and administrators, and business/community leaders. Participants must register prior to September 19 at the Online Panel for Achievement Level Setting Web page. In addition, the CDE will be distributing post-testing surveys and conducting focus groups to provide a look into local educational agencies’ experience with the testing systems, best practices, and perceptions of readiness for online testing in 2015. Various stakeholders will be included in the surveys and focus groups, including district and county testing and technology coordinators, teachers, parents, and students. Results will help determine what additional resources or assistance might be needed to prepare for future online testing. During this spring’s trial run, students in grades three through eight and most eleventh graders, plus a sampling of ninth and tenth graders, completed tests in English-language arts

and mathematics based on California’s Common Core standards. The new standards were adopted by California in 2010 to encourage critical thinking, complex problem solving, and deeper knowledge of subjects. Students also engaged in performance tasks, which were extended activities that measured their ability to integrate knowledge and skills across multiple standards—a key component of collegeand career-readiness. Each school had been assigned a six-week window during which students took the test that was estimated to take approximately 3.5 hours per student to complete. The test was administered over multiple sessions of 45-minutes each or in shorter or longer sessions as appropriate for the students and the school. No student, school, district, or statewide scores will be produced from this year's assessment. Rather than a sampling of students, California tested all of its eligible students, resulting in the largest field test by far of any participating state in the nation. The state had sought and was subsequently granted a waiver by the federal government in March that allowed it to forego the usual state accountability assessments thus avoiding a “double-testing” of its students.

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.

On Saturday, June 28, 2014, the Sierra Madre Historical Preservation Society will host its second annual Chicken & Ravioli Dinner in honor of Lizzie and the good times associated with her establishment, Lizzie’s Trail Inn. Please join us as we continue the spirit of Lizzie: her congeniality and friendship and delicious food! So, who was Lizzie and how did this come to be? Sierra Madre knows her as Lizzie, the operator of the Trail Inn on East Mira Monte at the foot of the Mount Wilson Trail in the 1920s and ’30s. History knew her as Elizabeth Louisa Ciez Adler Weiss Stoppel McElwain. She led a colorful but all-too short life. The roots of her family names of Ciez and Adler are unknown. Her younger son’s birth certificate lists Ciez as his mother’s maiden name. But Lizzie’s obituary in the Los Angeles Times lists her maiden name as Adler. Lizzie was born in the Russian Empire on September 20, 1888. Her village was near Kiev in today’s Ukraine. According to her obituary in the Sierra Madre News of January 4, 1939, within months of her birth, her mother died and her father was killed. The story continued: A family with nine children took her in, and when she learned in 1906 of being adopted, the now-eighteenyear-old Elizabeth ran away to Kiev. A kind woman in the city welcomed the girl into her family. As it turned out, this woman was a sister of Elizabeth’s birth mother – her aunt! Her new family immigrated to Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1909. Lizzie met her first husband, Louis Weiss, and they married in Cleveland.

They welcomed their first child, Joseph, in Ohio and relocated to Los Angeles in 1911. In 1913, their second son, Ruben, was born. By 1920, Lizzie was the landlady at a rooming house at 309 Temple Street in Los Angeles (currently the site of the County of Los Angeles Heating and Refrigeration Plant). According to the previously cited obituary, she was fluent in nine languages and volunteered as an interpreter at the Los Angeles County Hospital on Mission Road on the east side of the Los Angeles River. Her husband passed away the following year. It’s worth noting that Mr. Weiss was 35 years Lizzie’s senior. Residing at the rooming house was Louis August Stoppel who was to become Lizzie’s second husband in 1927. In the meantime, according to Dr. William White in 1996, Mrs. Elizabeth Weiss bought the business at the Trail Inn on her birthday in 1925. By October of the following year, Louis Stoppel’s name appeared on search warrants and a disposition of a guilty plea for illegal manufacturing of alcohol at the Trail Inn and the adjacent Richardson House. During Lizzie’s years at the Trail Inn, the establishment developed a sterling reputation for her kitchen fare, especially her fried chicken and her ravioli dinners. It also had a less savory back story of sexual trysts in the three cabins above the inn, and, of course, the moonshine. But everyone agreed that Lizzie was most congenial and had many friends. On November 1, 1935, Lizzie’s declining health (thought to be due to breast cancer) led her to relinquish the Trail Inn. Louis Stoppel had left Lizzie sometime

in the early years of the decade. But on December 16, she once again assumed the lease and the business. In 1936 Lizzie married Edward Harding “Mac” McElwain and got the support she needed. Even though Lizzie was ill, she continued to personally pay bills and taxes through December of 1938. But the end came on January 3, 1939, at the age of 50. Lizzie is buried in East Los Angeles at the Home of Peace Memorial Park on Whittier Boulevard. Lizzie’s Trail Inn lives on as the City of Sierra Madre’s mountain history Museum. The Museum is operated by the Sierra Madre Historical Preservation Society and is open Saturdays between 10 and noon. The spirit of Lizzie— congeniality and friendship—continues to greet all visitors. Lizzie’s Famous Chicken & Ravioli Dinner Saturday, June 28, 2014, 5-8 p.m. Mt. Wilson Trail Park 167 Mira Monte Avenue, $30 per person *No tickets will be sold the day of the dinner*. Tickets may be purchased at the following Sierra Madre locations: Arnold’s Hardware, Mary’s Market, Savor The Flavor, the Sierra Madre Public Library, and of course, Lizzie’s Trail Inn (Saturdays 10:00-noon).

PCC gave itself a “black eye” according to a Los Angeles Times report over the rescinded commencement speech invitation to Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, it announced that the replacement commencement speaker would be Dr. Eric Walsh, Pasadena’s director of public health. Only to discover that Walsh was a bigot-and and vehemently anti-gay. Black eye indeed, for Pasadena too. Walsh was placed on paid administrative leave and the story got even more complicated. “Black, 39, would have been a terrific and inspiring speaker. But PCC President Mark W. Rocha, Deputy Supt.

the student newspaper, The Courier. The public embarrassment of the Walsh saga combined with the anti-gay slings and arrows pointed in the direction of actor Dustin Black and then the re-invitation, which was accepted by Black in the eleventh hour closed a dark chapter on the campus. Rocha was appointed president of PCC in 2010. In October, the PCC Board of Trustees voted unanimously to extend Rocha’s contract through 2017 and raise his salary by $10,000 to $254,135 a year starting on July 1.
