frican-American churches are a critical element in Monrovia’s rich history. Institutions such as the Shiloh A.M.E Zion Church on Canyon proved to be more than a place of worship for local African Americans like Dorothy Dudley who spent the better part of ten years trying to get the city to honor her church and its rich history in some shape or form.

The story of Shiloh A.M.E. Zion church really begins with Elias J. “Lucky” Baldwin, who bought some 8,000 acres of Rancho Santa Anita in 1875. Baldwin had noticed the fertile acres of the San Gabriel Valley while traveling through it on the way to his mining interests in the mountains above San Bernardino. In time, Baldwin acquired a stable of fine thoroughbred racing horses that were housed on the ranch when they were not winning races at the major race tracks around the country. It was in his role as trusted employee that Fisher was sent by Baldwin to South Carolina to recruit families to work under
contract on his ranch. Most, if not all of the families recruited by Fisher lived in Bennettsville, South Carolina, and many of them were related directly to each other or related by marriage. They had also been members of an A.M.E. Zion Church in Bennettsville. The families arrived in January of 1886 after an arduous journey. Almost immediately they re-gathered as a congregation under the leadership of the Reverend Henry Hollins. They chose

Police called on a woman wearing her hijab Law enforcement slogan ‘If you see something, say something’ may be too vague Editor’s note: The following is a first person account of a sad but commonplace misconception in our troubled world. The incident took place the day before the 17th Anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. The victim was wearing a hijab.
am writing to inform you that I was humiliated today (Monday), while walking eastward on Foothill Boulevard at the crossing of Violet Avenue around noon today. After getting my cardiovascular workout, I stopped to visit my mother-in-law staying in one of the apartments on Foothill. I knocked on the wrong door. Residents saw me wearing my hijab, which is a Muslim headscarf, and therefore assumed that I am a suspicious person. Next thing I knew, I was detained by a Monrovia Police officer claiming that they got an anonymous caller stating that I am breaking into cars.
The officer said that I could not continue walking since I had been detained. Then a second Police SUV pulled up, stating that a caller said I was stealing mail in the neighborhood. After demanding my name and date of birth, the officers expressed apologies considering that I was carrying only a bottle of water and had no stolen goods in my possession. Basically, it was my head-scarf that aroused suspicion among the neighbors. We each need to take responsibility for the level of ignorance in our society. Today it is me, tomorrow it could be you targeted for some other reason resulting from unawareness. Let me introduce myself to

Donald Trump cannot be blamed since he was not in power then. However, considering the degradation that I have faced today, Trump gets credited to some degree. Nevertheless, there is no excuse. One cannot live in bliss while his/her neighbor faces humiliation. We all need to brainstorm for solutions on how we can improve our society which promotes dignity for all. I think education is best. I speak at churches and schools and I encourage you all to attend. Bring a neighbor. Perhaps, you’ll end up bringing some of my old neighbors. See the Islam Q/A tab on my website, esmaali.com. I answered questions that people have on their minds, including why I wear the hijab, the headscarf that caused so much havoc today.

Call Bentley Home for the Aged by any other name, at bottom line it’s still an “old folks’ home.” A place where people go—or are thrust into—for the last chapter of of their lives. A place, finally, to die. And that is where we find Weller Martin. He’s sitting by a card table, alone, bored, and disgruntled with life in general and with his life in particular. Along comes a sobbing Fonsia Dorsey who seems, at the moment, even more sad and desolate than Weller. Annoyed at first, he soon coaxes her into a game of gin rummy to get her mind off her troubles. She’s never played gin, so he offers to teach her. Moreover, it gives Weller a distraction from his own morose boredom. Let the game begin! Fonsia wins! “Beginner’s

luck,” Weller says. But she wins again and again. And again. It is hilarious good fun to watch Weller’s frustration as he loses repeatedly. Weller gets increasingly irate and illtempered. He becomes almost apoplectic, and his profanities are increasingly bombastic. Fonsia covers her ears, appalled with his cursing, having been raised in a strict Methodist family. Thus “The Gin Game”
becomes a battleground of insults and name-calling. Yet between hands of gin, slowly their own old-age anxieties and fears are revealed. They mourn the things they can no longer do that they once were good at, like dancing. Read More at, SierraMadreWeekly.com, PasadenaIndependent.com

dia de la independencia mexicana mexican independence day
More Than a Shout of Pride During the Month of September alex CORDERO firstname.lastname@example.org
n the early morning of Sept.16, 1810 in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico, a Roman Catholic priest named Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, rallied the Mexican people to rise up and declare their independence from 300 years of Spanish rule. By 1821 a country that was formerly known as New Spain was thereafter known as the independent country of Mexico to the rest of the world. Even though there may be many misconceptions that Cinco de Mayo is the independence holiday of Mexico, Sept. 16 is in fact the day Mexico celebrates the birth of its nation. The cry for Mexico’s independence, now referred to as “El Grito de Dolores” (The Cry of Dolores) is re-enacted every year late at night on Sept. 15 followed by festivities lasting all through

Sept. 16, the national independence day of Mexico. Thousands of people gather on the evening of Sept. 15 in the national palace in Mexico City to hear the same bell that Miguel Hidalgo used to
recruit his congregation for independence. It is a tradition for the President of Mexico to give a shout of patriotism from the balcony of the national palace. The traditional “Grito de Dolores” is recited in front
of thousands honoring the names of heroes responsible for fighting the war of independence. Every year from deep within the hearts of Mexican people, filled with pride all over the nation, they shout at the
top of their voices “VIVA MEXICO” three times at the end of “El Grito.” The event is a long standing tradition in Mexico and the vibrant celebrations are contagious. This famous patriotic
shout also kicks off Latino Heritage Month here in the U.S. Cities like New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles hold Mexico’s Independence Day celebration as well as the tradition of the patriotic shout. Many Latin countries celebrate their independence day in the month of September. Countries such as Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and Nicaragua celebrate the births of their nations during this month as well. On Saturday, Sept. 15 there will be a big “El Grito” celebration from 5 to 10:30 p.m. at the City Hall of Los Angeles. There will be live performances, music, food and dancing. At 9 p.m. there will be a re-enactment of the Cry of Dolores, and there will be prideful shouts of Latin Heritage. The event will give locals the opportunity to experience Mexico’s Independence Day celebration that shouts pride, patriotism, and honor.

the name “Shiloh” for their new congregation; it may have been the name of their prior church in Bennettsville. Among those families who came were the Adams, Graham, Hollins, McClain, McCoy, McQueen, Moore, Morris, and Shaw families. The church was founded in 1886 and Rev. Hollins was the presiding pastor back then. The church was officially established in 1892. While not eligible for Landmark status, the church community including Councilmember Larry Spicer celebrated the unveiling of a plaque Saturday afternoon. Dudley was quick to point out that city staffers and friends of the church were extremely helpful in garnering the recognition. She also singled out Ralph Walker and KGEM for his invaluable service to the church and community. Dorothy Dudley said, “There’s a lot of love there (in the church) … people really help one another.” The effervescent 81-year-old and her equally bubbly 87-year-old husband Earz Dudley Sr. came to Monrovia in 1973 and were invited by a co-worker to

The city will continue monitoring this issue.

Monrovia Unified School District is approved, it will extend the School Resource Officer Program for another two years. The previous memorandum allowed the program to be active only one year at a time. “I think it is a great program because it allows police officers to develop a relationship with the student body and the people in our community and it pays huge dividends later on,” Board Clerk Rob Hammond said. Both the city and the school board decided in a joint meeting this summer that a

two-year program was better because they were satisfied with how the program was doing, Hammond said. The Monrovia Unified School District currently has one resource officer that services all the schools in the district, Board President Terrence Williams said. “He is

Arcadia and Pasadena High School Dr. Gordon Amerson Brings His Students Selected as Vision to San Gabriel Valley Schools May s. ruiz MayChu@att.net
r. Gordon Amerson is a big believer in creating a culture of achievement and opportunity using the innate skills and talents of the community. It is the vision he brings to San Gabriel Valley schools as he leads the Duarte Unified School District (DUSD). After officially taking over the superintendent position on July 23, 2018, Dr. Amerson spent a month visiting each of the district’s seven schools, preschool programs, and public charter, the California School of the Arts-San Gabriel Valley (CSArts-SGV), to meet teachers, listen to parents, and learn about the community. “Before taking on this level of responsibility, I was an educator for a long time,” declares Dr. Amerson. I was a classroom teacher, an athletic coach in baseball and football, and a high school principal. I’ve seen a lot of places and spaces along the educational management spectrum which, I believe, helps inform my leadership. “I have a multi-faceted
understanding of what teachers and principals are going through on a daily basis as they try to create a community of learners and to keep students engaged. Seeing that work from different angles and experiences has given me a wide-range perspective and will help me be supportive as well as decisive.” The most important issues Dr. Amerson will be tackling are the scholars and the staff. He states, “I want to make sure scholars are connected to the school they attend; I want our staff to be empowered to do great work. The focus for me would be establishing trust and collaboration, being transparent, being visible so people know I’m accessible, letting them know I’m here to coach, support and mentor. I really want to try my best to coordinate our facilities as an organization to provide the services so people can do their job and kids can learn.” “The board, administrators, staff, families, students, and the whole community implemented a communitybased strategy. There is a cohesion, a partnership, and a collaboration that exist between the district and the
city. That synergy is what helps transform an entire neighborhood and produces positive outcomes for students. “Those partnerships are wide-ranging, from the work we do on our early college program, in our culinary arts program, all the things we do at our theme-based academies, the international baccalaureate program, our STEAM initiative with ‘Project Lead the Way,’ the alliance we have with City of Hope and CSArts, just to name a few.” DUSD is a hopping place. Student learning is balanced and engaging – it offers everything from theatre acting, graphic arts, and music performance to engineering, math, science, and technology. It is an enriching environment for young people to immerse in scholarship as much as it is a satisfying place for teachers to mold responsive minds. With Dr. Amerson’s leadership, DUSD could very well be the exemplar of erudition. And that would be his singular contribution to a community that continuously strives to afford the best education and a promising future for its youth.

os Angeles is no stranger to gourmet ice cream, but too many fall into the social media trap of being long on style and short on taste. Koreatown transplant Holy Roly manages to blend its ice cream with beauty, flavor and something more: being arguably junk-free. “I am a big fan of ice cream, but also care about my health and ingredients. Most is made with a lot of cheap sugars, stabilizers, preservatives and emulsifiers and I wanted something fresh, healthy and entertaining,” said Louis Kim, owner and founder of Holy Roly Ice Cream. An architect and real estate developer, he first encountered the Thaiinspired rolled ice cream around 2014 through its international popularity in Korea and New York. He soon sought a way to make it appealing to a Southern California audience. “We wanted to be

The Illegal Question in the Room
Send your letters to email@example.com - Please be brief.
Reader Responds to “Did You Know a Mattress…”
he title of this column is a reference to the big elephant in the room. It’s that thing that everybody knows, but nobody is talking about. I’d like to talk about it a little today: illegal job interview questions. Did you know that in 2018, people are still being asked illegal questions in job interviews? They are. It’s happening. I’ve wondered how this could be the case. My best guess is this. Illegal questions seem obvious from the outside. Rarely do hiring managers get trained on how to properly interview candidates. Interviewing seems like something we should all know how to do if we’re hiring. Human resources folks know the illegal questions, but the questions seem so obvious that it probably seems pointless to review the questions
Do you know about illegal job interview questions? – Courtesy photo
with hiring managers. But, sadly, it seems we really need to. Interviewing isn’t a skill we’re all born with, and as hiring managers, we may not really think about what we should or shouldn’t say. A few of the basics we should all avoid include: religion, pregnancy status, disability, age, citizenship, race, marital status, or number of children. In certain states and cities, it’s also illegal to ask how much money someone has made at a previous job. The elimination of these questions helps everyone to
avoid discrimination. It also helps us to focus in on what we’re really there for: the job search. Can this candidate do the job?
Thanks to you, I now understand why my mattress has gotten so heavy and why the bed feels so crowded! Frankly, I thought it was only my cookie crumbs. So after reading your explanation, I’ve decided that from now on I’m going to sleep in a hammock -which I hope can be bought in a queen size, since I don’t want to sleep without my wife. We’ll try to get used to that new way of slumbering, and hope we don’t miss our mattress too much.

Waterfront Paradise in Marina del Rey Greg aragon firstname.lastname@example.org
t’s hard to call a town with the world’s largest man-made marina a hidden gem, but in a way, Marina Del Rey is just that. Located near the larger, more famous areas of Los Angeles such as Venice Beach and Santa Monica, the tiny city can easily be overlooked. But for savvy travelers from around the globe, the place is waterfront paradise. “Marina del Rey is an urban waterfront playground that offers tourists resort-like amenities, exceptional hotel accommodations, and dining experiences with breathtaking Marina views,” says Janet Zaldua, CEO of the
Marina del Rey Convention & Visitors Bureau. I began a recent getaway to Marina del Rey at Jamaica Bay Inn (jamaicabayinn.com), a tropical island-like resort located in the marina, on Mother’s Beach, with great views of the sand and water. The boutique hotel is a true West Indies-inspired experience, complete with rattan furnishings, warm colors, rich textures, and lush flora. And like a Caribbean resort, the water is only few steps away. Read More at, ArcadiaWeekly.com, MonroviaWeekly.com, PasadenaIndependent.com

No. 2 Arcadia Throttles Burroughs to Remain Undefeated

Monrovia Wildcats Relish First Win of Season
ehind a big secondhalf effort, Monrovia football finally managed to get in the win column after defeating Valley Christian 47-20 on Friday. “It feels good, it was a few games coming,” said new Head Coach Chris Williams. “Last couple of weeks our boys were right there. They were battling and it was just little things that we’ve been telling them, that we just got to learn how to finish and learn how to get over the hump.” While getting the first win might have taken a little longer than expected, the Wildcats were determined to build a head of steam before entering league play, which is
less than a month away. In the first half, the Wildcats and Defenders vied for control of the game but neither side was able to gain a significant amount of separation. Despite the sluggish start, junior Devon Mayes helped get the offense going by completing a deep drive with a touchdown, giving Monrovia a 7-3 lead at the end of the first quarter. Valley Christian would not go away as they tied the game 10-10 early in the second quarter. However, quarterback Nick Hernandez – who made his first start on Friday – connected with Frank Hernandez to complete a 73-yard play for the touchdown and the lead. The Hernandez duo ulti-
mately paid huge dividends for Monrovia as Nick threw for 293 yards while Frank had six receptions for 202 yards to go along with his two touchdowns. The Wildcats ended up taking a 24-17 advantage into the break but were certainly not out of the woods yet. Fortunately for Monrovia, both its offense and defense found their groove, prompting the Wildcats to outscore the Defenders 23-3 in the second half. Along with getting the first win, Williams was also extremely proud of Nick considering he wasn’t Williams’ No. 1 choice at the beginning of the season. “(Nick) battled all spring and all summer but he didn’t win the job coming out of camp, he never quit, he stuck with it, he kept grinding and doing what we asked, and tonight he showed up and had a great game and I’m super proud of him,” Williams said. The Wildcats improved to 1-3 on the season but will have a big test coming up as they are set to play powerhouse Covina (2-1) at Covina District Field on Friday.
In the wake of being ranked No. 2 in CIF’s Division I poll, the Arcadia girls’ tennis team continued its reign of dominance as it defeated Burroughs 16-2 on Tuesday. This Apaches have been nothing short of sensational this year, opening the season with a six-game winning streak that includes a 3-0 record in Pacific League action. Their masterful play has garnered much recognition as CIF has them ranked second in Division I only behind Campbell Hall but ahead of No. 3 Corona del Mar and No. 4 Palos Verdes. “We’re ranked No. 2 in Division I for girls CIF and we’re very excited and I’m very proud of the girls for that but we’re still working

very hard to get to No. 1,” said Arcadia Head Coach Ruth Lagace. In Tuesday’s match against Burroughs, the Apaches continued to build their case for that elusive No. 1 spot. Christina Yao won all three of her sets
while the doubles team of Michelle Deng and Jean Chen took all three of their sets. Arcadia will return to the courts on Thursday and Friday as it heads out to Irvine to compete in the Beckman Tournament.
La Salle overcame a 23-20 deficit in the final set of its 3-0 league victory over St. Paul on Tuesday. – Photo by Aaron Valdez / Beacon Media News
La Salle Comes Out on Top in Grind-Out Win Over St. Paul Despite a tight and competitive third set, La Salle girls’ volleyball completed the sweep to defeat St. Paul in the Lancers’ second Del Rey League game of the season. Going into the match, the Lancers were riding a two-game winning streak after suffering a tough 3-0 loss to St. Lucy’s on Sept. 4. However, La Salle already had one league game under its belt and was looking to take another in hopes of remaining atop the standings.
The Lancers did well to establish an early rhythm against St. Paul, dominating in nearly all aspects of the game. As usual, libero Vanessa Ramirez set the tone defensively as she finished the game with a team-high of 24 digs while Crystal Ramirez picked up 21 digs of her own. La Salle handily won the first two sets 25-19 and 25-12 and seemed well on its way to comfortably closing out the match in the third set. However, St. Paul did not go down without a fight
as they rallied late to take a 23-20 lead. With their seventh sweep of the season on the line, the Lancers put together a gutsy team effort to erase the deficit and take the set 25-23. Chloe Howell once again spearheaded La Salle’s offense, recording a teamhigh of 11 kills to go with 14 digs and three serving aces. Alessandra Perez and Carly Kejmar also played a crucial part in terms of orchestrating the offense as the tandem combined for 26 assists.
