Assemblymember Anthony Portantino’s (D-La Cañada Flintridge) legislation to repeal the “open carry” loophole in state law moved a step closer today when the Senate Public Safety Committee voted 4 - 2 to approve Portantino’s AB 144. AB 144 makes it a crime to openly carry an unloaded handgun in any public place or street. Violations are a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $1000. Law en-

forcement personnel are exempt, as are hunters and others carrying unloaded weapons under specified licensed circumstances. “When average Californians go to the mall, movies or Starbucks they shouldn’t face tense situations where law enforcement officials are called out to investigate openly carried firearms,” Portantino said. “Our limited resources should not be diverted from real crime situ-

Arcadia’s Arroyo Plumbing Named ‘Small Business of the Year’ for the 44th Assembly District Assemblymember Anthony Portantino (DLa Cañada Flintridge) has named Kevin Zimmerman and Arroyo Plumbing, as the 44th Assembly District Small Business of the Year. Zimmerman was honored Monday morning in ceremonies at California Small Business Day in Sacramento. “I am pleased to recognize Kevin Zimmerman for his dedication and hard work in Arcadia and the

San Gabriel Valley,” stated Assemblymember Portantino. “Kevin is a success not only because of his business acumen, but because he gives back to the community through his dedication to the Arcadia Chamber of Commerce where he has served as board member and Chamber President.” Kevin grew up in Alhambra and had a knack for taking things apart and putting them back together

at a young age. He stayed local, moved to Monrovia, then Arcadia and grew his business by doing work for the City of Arcadia as well as the Tournament of Roses. Arroyo Plumbing is a family-owned business with Kevin as President and his wife, Linda Young Zimmerman as Vice-President. Congratulations from the California State Assembly.

Vitamin F Dorothy's Place

BY DOROTHY DENNE One of my readers mentioned the other day that he noticed I have done a few re-runs lately. Yep, I have. Something will trigger my memory and I’ll go looking for something I’ve done, see what I need to rewrite. Sometimes, if I’m lucky, I feel I can use it as is. I say lucky because at times my memory is stronger than my creativity. I don’t necessarily go braindead, just brain-weary. I’ve been writing Dorothy’s Place for nearly 20 years and deadlines roll around quickly. Sometimes I’m lucky also to receive one of those e-mail Fwds that float around Cyberspace that I think is worthy of sharing. The following is one such. I received it yesterday. “Why do I have a variety of friends who are all different in character? Some of them can be considered mar-

ginal even? How do I get on with them all? I think that each one helps to bring out a different part of me... With one of them I am a polite, good girl. I joke with another friend. I sit down and talk about serious matters with one of them. With another I giggle at every silly thing. I have my wine with one, and dance with another. I listen to one friend’s problems and give her advice, then I listen to another advising me. “They are all like pieces of a jigsaw. When completed they form a treasure box. A treasure of friends! They are my friends who understand me better than myself, who support me through good days and bad days. They are colourful antidepressants that I take on different days. “Real Age doctors tell us that friends are good for our

health. Dr. Oz calls them Vitamins F (from Friends) and counts the benefits of friends to our well being. “Research shows that people in strong social circles have less risk of depression and terminal strokes. If you take Vitamin F constantly you can be up to 30 years younger than your real age. The warmth of friendship stops stress and, even in your tense moments, it decreases the chance of a cardiac arrest or stroke by 50% . “I am so happy that I have a stock of Vitamins F! In summary we should value our friends and keep in touch with them. We should try to see the funny side of things and laugh together, not forgetting to open our mouths big to swallow the floating vitamins F!!!” I suspect the author of this Fwd. was British because she spelled colorful with a u--colourful. Isn’t it wonderful that Vitamin F is available around the world?

Dear Editor: As I entered the gleaming, new Monrovia High School gym with the rest of the incoming freshman parents on orientation night, I was apprehensive. The move from 8th grade to high school is a big, scary step for a lot of kids and I worried that my daughter would be overwhelmed next September. But as Principal Darvin Jackson and his enthusiastic staff described the procedures and programs at MHS, I felt my anxieties dissolve and my excitement swell. It was a familiar feeling. I’d experienced a similar moment three years earlier, as my eldest daughter made the fretful transition from elementary school to middle school. Fellow parents had told me how much they loved Santa Fe Middle School, and I was overtaken by that same enthusiasm on

kids thrived amid a diligent, relentlessly-optimistic team of educators, parents and students. And I know that families of kids at Wild Rose, Plymouth, Mayflower, Bradoaks, Clifton and MHS will be equally effusive in raving about their schools. There’s just something really special and wonderful about Monrovia schools! Is there room for growth? Of course! Are there goals yet to achieve? Always! But overall our educational community is pointed in the right direction as educators and families unite to help all of our kids fulfill their potential, realize their dreams and achieve their greatest personal success.

a spring day in my daughter’s 6th grade year when we toured Santa Fe with Principal Ron LeTourneau and then vice-principal Rick Crosby. On that afternoon, I observed first-hand what other moms and dads had told me: that Santa Fe is an exceptional school whose soaring spirit and record of scholastic and social excellence belie the outdated, false impressions. My admiration and love for Santa Fe has grown steadily over the last three years as the stellar faculty and staff have challenged and encouraged my two daughters – with their unique personalities and individual strengths and needs – to blossom both inside and outside of the classroom. All of that reminded me of our wonderful experience at Monroe Elementary School, that spiritcharged campus where my

ations. Open Carry puts the public in danger as well as law enforcement personnel. As I’ve said before, it doesn’t take a hand gun to buy a cheeseburger.” After seeing a proliferation of weapons on Main Street California, law enforcement officials sought the ban on these open displays of firearms. Portantino took up the cause and has worked with law enforcement on the “open

carry” ban. The measure is supported by the California Police Chiefs Association, PORAC- representing rank-and-file police officers, and LA County Sheriff Lee Baca. The cities of Los Angeles, West Hollywood and Beverly Hills are also supporting the bill as is the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “Carrying an unloaded gun isn’t as innocent as it seems,” explained

Portantino. “It only takes a few seconds to load a gun and fire. This bill makes it less likely that will happen in our streets and in our neighborhoods. I don’t want to read about an incident six months or a year from now and think that we failed to address this problem when we had the chance.” AB 144 now goes to Senate Appropriations for fiscal consideration.

Not All PUSD Parents Satisfied with Special Ed Programs Continued from page 1 and certificates from representatives of State Senator Carol Liu and Assemblymember Anthony Portantino. Matlin, deaf since age 2, shared her story of perseverance and determination into the world of Hollywood acting. The Einstein award is presented to an individual who, through personal success or extraordinary effort, is helping tear down lingering stereotypes. Matlin’s career and successes are

an inspiration to many, both in the Pasadena community and throughout the nation. “Every day is critical to the success of our kids,” Mike Costello of the CAC said. “Every child has the potential to do great things.” Costello spoke of the need for continuing support; support of parents, of teachers, and the importance of collaboration in programs where special needs children are integrated into general ed-

ucation classrooms. The CAC, a state mandated parent liaison group for special needs children, works to comment and advise PUSD on how their special education budget should be spent, and what programs work best. According to Costello, the CAC focuses on inclusion, and programs are designed specifically for individual special needs students. Based on individual need, the students are included in general education class-

rooms for a full day, parts of the day, or not at all. Not all agreed with the program however; parent protestors held signs outside the event reading “Educate Don’t Segregate,” and “Inclusion Means Everyone.” Parents Tony and Mary Jo Brandenburg stood alongside a group of approximately 15 protestors who felt that there were inadequate accommodations for students on the autism-spectrum at Sierra Madre Elementary School. “We feel very ostracized, our child has been ostracized.” Mary Jo said, following a series of events including a police report and a parent petition to keep her autistic son out of Sierra Madre Elementary. “You’re not welcome there” was the feeling she had upon walking the halls of the school with her son. The Brandenburgs expressed concerns that general education students and their parents had not been educated about special needs children, and so they felt both parents and children were bullying their child, and that they were unaware that their son’s communication and sensory challenges were behaviors associated with being on the autism spectrum. In a formal request to PUSD, the Brandenburgs called for, among other things, an anti-bullying program to specifically address discrimination against people with autistic

spectrum disorders, a crisis counseling intervention program at Sierra Madre Elementary School, and that parent volunteers be required to attend parent workshops prior to interacting with children on campus. PUSD’s Interim Director of Communications Hilda Ramirez Horvath said that there was an investigation by the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights, and it was ruled that the district was in compliance with public law. Horvath said that the goal of PUSD was to “try to find the appropriate environment for every child … [we] partner with parents to find solutions.” Costello said that the biggest issue was that the general education teachers are hesitant to integrate

special needs children into their classrooms, and that there does need to be a dispelling of lingering stereotypes. “Every child learns differently,” Costello said, and added that special education teachers are teachers with an even greater capacity to understand and utilize different learning techniques not only for use with special education children, but in general education classrooms. A number of local organizations focusing on special needs held a resource fair prior to the event. Vendors included Club21, First Church of the Nazarene of Pasadena’s Special Needs Ministry, Autism Speaks and Education Spectrum. More information on the CAC can be found at www.cac.pasadenausd.org.

Pasadena Community Foundation Celebrates Local Heroes Day BY MICHELLE R. BROWN The Pasadena Community Foundation held its annual Local Heroes Celebration Tuesday, June 7 at the Pasadena University Club. The event honored Pasadena non-profit organizations for their ongoing community support and awarded grants to aid in the continuation of these programs. The categories for grants were Youth Development, Recovery & Rebuilding Lives, Helping the Homeless, Enabling the Disabled, Fragile Families, Healthy Community, Honoring the Elderly, Enrichment through the Arts, and

The Doozies

Empowerment through Education. “We support the changing needs of the community” Arnie Mulder, Board Chair of PCF said. The grants were given for a wide range of purposes, ranging from a truck for Ability First to a digital fingerprinting system and bike helmets for Pasadena Police Foundation. Pasadena Police Chief Phil Sanchez noted in his acceptance speech, the importance of restorative justice to the community. Rather than just spending money on jails and prisons,

Sanchez felt it was important to think about “investing the same amount to resources for prevention and intervention.” Ability First President Lori Gangemi described how her program provides homes for 300+ people, and helps individuals with special needs to “lead full and productive lives … [and] break down employment barriers.” Gangemi also said that “these milestones can truly be miracles,” and thanked the Pasadena Community Foundation for their support. The event was well

attended by the recipient organizations, representatives for district politicians, and Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard. The Foundation awarded a total of $629,389 in grants at the event. In honor of the Local Heroes event, Pasadena City Manager Michael Beck delivered a special City of Pasadena proclamation declaring June 7 as Local Heroes Day.

The inaugural Eric Perry Memorial 5k Run/Walk will take place on Sunday June 26th, 2011 at 7:00am at the Arboretum in Arcadia. Proceeds from this charity event will benefit the American Brain Tumor Association (“ABTA”). This will be a non-profit event with 100% of the net proceeds benefiting the ABTA. Interestingly, this will be one of only two brain tumor related fundraisers in Los Angeles in 2011 and the only ABTA event in all of California. Eric Perry was a 50-year member of the Arcadia community who passed away last

June after battling brain cancer, an affliction over 200,000 people are diagnosed with each year. Proceeds from this event will be used to provide critical funding to researchers working toward breakthroughs in brain tumor diagnosis, treatment and care, with the ultimate goal of finding a cure. The Arboretum was one of Eric’s favorite places to visit and, even after the disease had taken away his ability to walk, he was wheeled around the beautiful grounds in his wheelchair. The Eric Perry Memorial 5k Run/Walk is being established as an an-

nual tribute to Eric and all those who are no longer able to walk with us, so that others may continue walking with their loved ones in the future. Everyone is welcome to participate in support of this year’s goal of raising $4,000 to help fund the ABTA’s activities. For more information, including event registration or to make a donation, please visit the event’s website at http://hope.abta.org/ericperryrunwalk. Sponsorship opportunities are also available – please contact Mark Perry at moperry@hotmail. com for details.

The recipients were selected after an on line poll was conducted of District 2 voters asking for nominations for their favorite businesses. Andrew Lo, of Novel Café on Colorado, was one such recipient. He said he was delighted that the city recognizes the hard work that goes into creating a productive and vibrant business and hopes the trend continues. Areas such as East Pasadena and South Lake Street are two areas where businesses have struggled for years with the focus often being on Old Pasadena. Lo said he’s glad that residents are starting to discover there is life after Old Pasadena and a vibrant one at that. Lo’s Novel Café offers some of the best music anywhere in Los Angeles on the weekends and has established a regular following for not only the ambiance but also his Chef’s creative flair. Many new businesses are springing up in East Pasadena and with the free parking readily available everywhere.

Man Killed in South San Gabriel Shooting BY NURIA A. MATHOG A 24-year-old Rosemead resident was shot and killed last Saturday in a potentially gang-related attack that took place close to his home. Authorities are currently attempting to track down the perpetrator and looking into possible motives for the crime. According to Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau Sergeant Bill Marsh, was quoted in a local newspaper, the shooting occurred at 1:15 a.m. at the junction of Orange Street and Grand View Avenue, an intersection in the unincorporated Los Angeles County area of South San Gabriel. The victim had just left his house, and was rounding the corner of the block, when nearby residents reported hearing a series of gunshots. Shortly thereafter, neighbors discovered the man lying wounded in the street. The victim sustained multiple gunshot wounds in the upper torso, and though immediately rushed to the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, he later died

from his injuries around 4 a.m., approximately three hours after the shooting. The name of the victim has not yet been released to the public, as the man’s identity still needs to be confirmed by his family. Within minutes of The Temple Station deputies stopped a car that closely matched a vehicle description given by a witness of the shooting. The driver was subsequently detained for questioning, but not arrested, and detectives are in the process of checking the driver’s background for possible gang affiliations. The sheriff’s department is also investigating whether the victim had any connections with local gangs. Authorities were unable to locate the gun used in the shooting, which was not present at the scene of the crime. Authorities urge anyone with additional information on the shooting to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500.

Sierra Madre Police Arrest Two Burglary Suspects On Tuesday morning, June 7th, a resident was in his home in the 300 block of E. Montecito Ave. when he heard loud banging on his front door. The victim looked through the blinds and saw two unfamiliar men. The victim did not answer the door, but watched as one man drove a pickup truck down the driveway. The other man put on gloves and walked towards the rear of the home. The victim grabbed a cell phone, called 911, and ran upstairs. As the victim was on the phone with the dispatcher, the two suspects broke into the home. The victim hid upstairs, and continued to provide the dispatcher with updated information. Police arrived in the area within a minute and found the suspect vehicle, a blue pickup truck with a single lawnmower in the bed, backing out of the driveway. Officers tried to

stop the vehicle; however, the driver did not comply and a short vehicle pursuit ensued. Officers stopped the suspects on Mountain Trail Ave., where they were taken into custody without incident. Officers found the victim’s stolen property inside the truck. Luis Loya and Adrian Rodriquez, both 18, of Pasadena, were booked for residential burglary and taken to the Pasadena City Jail. Bail for each was set at $50,000.00. Captain Larry Giannone said, “The victim in this case did a great job by calling 9-1-1 immediately and providing the dispatcher with accurate information throughout this horrifying event. His actions, along with the officers’ quick and effective response, resulted in the arrest of two burglary suspects and the recovery of stolen property.”

and Colleges (WASC). This designation is received by less than 3% of the schools which apply. A search has not been able to find another alternative school with such an accreditation. To put his in perspective Monrovia High School has a 3 year “clear” accreditation, but as Kristen Mariconda, Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent of Schools explained “they have a much more complex program.” At the joint graduation program of both schools, it was clear that their programs are very different from that at MHS. As each of the 83 graduates stepped up for congratulations from the principal, superintendent and members of the Board of Education and receive that coveted sheepskin, a faculty member introduced the student. Each introduction was more than just a name, it was a personal reminiscence of some characteristic of that student or a shared memory. Try that with a graduating class of 400. Perhaps it is that personal touch that sets apart these two schools. Canyon Oaks is, in essence the continuation high school for the district and Mountain Park is its alternative school. However, according to the principal of both schools, Flint Fertig, they are much more. It was fitting that the commencement exercise also celebrated the accreditation as commencement honors the beginning of a new chapter in the lives of

the graduates; so too, is it a new beginning for the school. For these students, however, it was not their first new beginning, in essence, a renaissance. Just coming to these two schools was a new beginning for many, if not all these students. According to Fertig, these students were considered the most “at risk” students in the system, but that he felt that the schools had made a real difference in their lives. “Now they are the least ‘at risk’ because of what we have given them,” he said. The explanation is simple according to the principal. “We have the same or more rigorous and higher expectations than other schools,” he explained. According to Fertig and Joy Dunn, one of the school’s counselors, there are very few discipline problems at the school. For example, cell phones and ipods are not allowed to be used while students are at school. This was not always the case. According to a story Fertig tells, when he first arrived at the schools, several students demanded to know who he was. When he explained that he was the new principal, they told him they didn’t need a principal. He suspended them, telling them that if they didn’t want to learn they wouldn’t last long. The counseling program was also launched and the schools received their first every accreditation three years ago (initial ac-

creditations are only given for 3-year periods). In the three years since that first accreditation, 50 students have been accepted at 4 year colleges and universities including UC Irvine, UC Riverside, Northern Arizona University, Cal State Los Angeles, Northridge and San Diego. This year 26 members of the graduating class of 83 have been accepted to four year institutions of higher learning including St. John’s in New York University of Laverne, San Francisco State and Hawaii Pacific University. This is possible because the schools’ programs have UC approval meaning that their college prep credits will be accepted by those college and universities. Many more of the graduates are planning to go on for higher education starting at Citrus College and Pasadena City College. A few are planning to attend specific technical colleges and one has plans to join the United States Navy. Not bad for those “at risk” students. The best part of this news is that with the six year accreditation, this trend will continue. Fertig and Dunn agree that part of reason for the success of the programs that have been established is that the staff and faculty believe that the students can achieve. The counseling programs have been established to work on the social, emotional and educational needs of the students. As Fertig explained, “When they know somebody cares, they give back.”

Happy Birthday Pasadena was inspired by the landmark 2009 PMH exhibition Family Stories: Sharing a Community’s Legacy to continue the Museum’s efforts to spotlight the contributions of a broader cross-section of the people in this region than is generally presented in City histories. Family Stories not only presented visual documentation of the diversity that has marked the region’s population statistics since the late 1800s, but also the important contributions of each group within the citizenry and the dynamic interaction among them. As Pasadena Museum of History’s ongoing efforts to continue searching out and celebrating grassroots history, the Pasadena Birthday Party will become an annual event each June.

nsion hill exte t o o f e gold lin Agreement has been reached between Metro and BNSF Railway to grant the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension exclusive use of the rail right-of-way between the future Arcadia and Irwindale station.

Metro has been conducting geotechnical tests along the planned two-mile underground route of the Regional Connector light rail line connecting the Metro Gold Line, Blue Line and future Expo Line through Downtown LA.

> Ground was broken last summer on the first phase, an 11.4-mile extension, from Sierra Madre Villa in Pasadena east with stops in Arcadia, Duarte, Irwindale, Monrovia and two in Azusa.

> The route connects with the Metro Blue and Expo lines at 7th Street/Metro Center Station and with the Metro Gold Line at Alameda Street.

> The project is being constructed in two segments; Phase 2A, from East Pasadena through Azusa; Phase 2B, from Glendora to Montclair.

> The Regional Connector will save approximately 20 minutes of travel time by eliminating passenger transfers through Downtown LA.

For more information, visit metro.net/foothillextension.

> Under the 30/10 Initiative, leveraging Measure R funding with federal dollars, construction could begin in 2014 and be completed by 2019.

‘The Solid Gold Cadillac' Drives Your Way Starting June 17th at Sierra Madre Playhouse At the mega-conglomerate General Products Corporation, a greedy board of directors is about to run a distinguished firm into the ground by looting the company and lining their own pockets. Does it sound like this comes from today’s headlines? Well, “The Solid Gold Cadillac” was first performed in 1953. Laura Partridge, a former actress and young widow, has 10 shares of stock in General Products. That’s enough to make her voice heard at a shareholders’ meeting. It’s also enough to get her plans started. Teaming up with the company’s former president, she’ll find a way to stop the corporate crooks from bleeding General Products dry. How will she accomplish that? It

involves caring about other small stockholders like herself. Will the larcenous bigwigs get their comeuppance? With Laura Partridge around, you bet they will. Georgan George plans Laura Partrige. The cast also includes Kevin Allesee, Jill Bartlett, Michael Bruce, Tony Cicchetti, Aric Cushing, Jessica Fox, Sasha Golberg, Norman Igar, Jeremy Mascia and Kent Vaughan. Ken Salzman directs.

Rescue Log Sierra Madre Search and Rescue During the past month Sierra Madre Search and Rescue (SMSR) responded to nine calls for assistance. Search for homicide suspect, local mountains: The Team assisted the L.A. Sheriff’s Department and local law enforcement agencies in the search for a homicide suspect in the local mountains. SMSR’s Station 108 served as the command post for the multi-day operation, SMSR members were deployed to aid with field searches and containment posts, and SMSR assisted in planning using its new GIS mapping software. The subject was found deceased near Chantry Flat. Multi-incident callout, Chantry Flat: Sometimes, when it rains it pours. The Team responded to a report of a trauma patient in the Hermit Falls area near Chantry Flat. A “bash crew” -- a rapid, firstresponse element of SMSR team members -- reached the site within minutes, and the patient was extracted by the L.A. Sheriff’s Department’s Air Rescue 5 helicopter. While making their way back to the trailhead Team members and U.S. Forest Service first responders were able to assist two other parties with minor injuries, delivering them safely to L.A. County Fire Department paramedics in the Chantry Flat parking lot. While these two patients

were still being treated, a lone hiker informed SMSR that their hiking companions were overdue and possibly injured. SMSR immediately dispatched Team members on a hasty search and the parties were located. Both were treated by Team members for minor injuries and were given a ride to their car in the parking lot. This kind of multi-incident callout is not unusual for the Team, particularly in the busy summer months, and it is a good example of the interagency cooperation that is common in SMSR’s operational area. Stranded hiker, Chantry Flat: SMSR responded to a report of a hiker stranded off-trail in a steep location near Chantry Flat. Team members prepared for a stranded hiker rescue, a technique the Team practices regularly in order to safely rescue those who fall victim to the steep and unstable slopes of the local mountains. Air Rescue 5 helicopter was alerted and its crew was able to lower a paramedic to the subject, secure them, and hoist them out of harm’s way. In addition to performing rescues and training, SMSR was proud to participate in two local sporting events during the past month: the inaugural Monrovia Fountain to Falls Run/Walk, and the legendary Mount Wilson Trail Race in Sierra Madre.

Preparing for the Mt. Wilson Trail Race is one of the highlights of the Team’s calendar every year. Hundreds of pounds of rescue gear must be hauled up the trail and pre-positioned: from ropes to litters to oxygen tanks. The Team prepares for any eventuality that may arise when hundreds of runners face the challenge of an 8.6-mile course, 2100 feet of elevation gain, and steep, rocky mountain trail. This year the Team aided several runners with minor complaints, and all were able to walk down the trail under their own power. SMSR has a long history of providing support to the Mt. Wilson Trail racers, and the Team is fortunate to be the beneficiary of the proceeds of the prerace pasta dinner and the post-race beer garden. Sierra Madre Search and Rescue is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that has been serving the local community for 60 years. The team has a proud history of never refusing a call for help no matter what the conditions, and also provides a range of public programs on wilderness safety. The Team never charges for any of its services. For more information, including how to arrange a wilderness safety demonstration for your school or group, visit www.smsr.org.
