Pasadena’s Plethora of Toads Halts County Debris Removal Project Monrovia Agrees to Pay ‘Ransom’ to the State to Save Redevelopment BY SUSAN MOTANDER The only real action taken by the Monrovia City Council at their July 19 meeting was the vote taken to pay the state what has come to be referred to as a “Ransom” or “Extortion Payment” to the save its Redevelopment Agency. The action was required by the current State Budget. The Council’s Action

BY MICHELLE R. BROWN LA County’s major project to remove built up debris from Devil’s Gate Dam in Pasadena has been halted due to an infestation of toads on Johnson Field, the proposed temporary holding site for the debris. Johnson Field will play

host to 15,000 cubic yards of sediment while the County completes an Environmental Impact Survey and decides on a permanent solution for the built up debris and green waste. According to Pasadena City Engineer Dan Rix,

the City was first informed of a toad problem at the June 13 City Council meeting. They then contacted the county, who hired Chambers Group, Inc., an environmental consulting group to send out a team of biologists to investigate

State Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Grocery Workers Dismissing claims by the California grocery industry, the state Supreme Court today upheld the right of local governments to protect the jobs of grocery employees following an ownership change. The 6-1 ruling overturns an appeals court decision and reinstated a Los Angeles ordinance that had been challenged by the grocery industry. In rejecting the industry’s case, the Court ruled that the ordinance “is fully consistent with both the state and federal equal protection clauses” and is not preempted by state or federal law governing

Dan Bacani, a local commercial real estate broker appeared at the July 5 City Council Meeting to praise the City for its cooperative effort in working with WorleyParsons to find and help set up its new regional headquarters here in Monrovia. The council dutifully thanked Bacani for his part in arranging the deal. This is the sixth property for WorleyParsons in Monrovia and will be located on West Lemon Avenue in part of the building which used to house Barry’s Jewelers. The other locations are all along Huntington Drive in what has come to be called the “High Tech Corridor.”

According to Bacani part of the reason he has been able to market properties in Monrovia so easily is that the city cooperates as fully as possible to accommodate businesses. He cited several businesses which have moved to the community recently. One of those he noted after the meeting was Oto Oto Izakaya Japonaise. a high end Japanese restaurant which recently established its first U.S. location at 929 West Huntington Drive in the shopping center at the corner of Huntington and 5th Avenue. The parent company has more than 150

Monrovia Agrees to Pay “Ransom” to the State to Save Redevelopment Continued from page 1 was prompted by the passage of AB X26 & AB X27. The first action dissolved individual cities’ redevelopment agencies. The second gave cities the “voluntary” alternative which was to pay the state to “opt out” of the dissolution by paying the state a rather large amount up front (in Monrovia’s case, almost $1.1 million) with continuing payments of approximately $400,000 a year. These are merely estimates with the exact amounts to be determined by the state. The city will have the ability to appeal this numbers. The California Redevelopment Agency has filed a lawsuit to declare the bills unconstitutional. The CRA hopes the action will be heard directly by the California Supreme Court rather than moving through the appellate process. The bills do contain a “Poison Pill” clause which would result in the immediate return to the

state of all Redevelopment Assets if any lawsuit against it were successful. The lawsuit specifically calls for this clause to be declared unconstitutional. Mayor Mary Ann Lutz made the following statement to this paper after the meeting: “Redevelopment saved Monrovia in the past and we intend to see that economic growth continues for our community. If we have to pay this extortion money then we will, not happily and definitely under protest, but this should demonstrate exactly how committed we are to keeping Monrovia moving forward.” In essence the city is paying, but not happily. Due to space restraints a more complete explanation of the council’s action and its discussion is available in this newspaper’s online edition. (Thank you Floretta)

BY DOROTHY DENNE What with all the damnable skateboards and rollerblades that abound these days, I saw a rare sight this morning. There was a kid skipping down the sidewalk. The happy sight just struck me. Watching that child cheerily bouncing along gave me a real feeling that all was well in the world. I felt a sudden urge to skip once more myself. MISTAKE. I figure it will now take me at least two weeks to recuperate. My humbled self continued the walk at my normal

gait with the addition of a limp. I made it around my route and returned home to meet my husband and go for my reward--out for brunch. We took my car because I didn’t feel up to folding my body into his little Bug. I was hungry, I hurt and I wasn’t in a very good mood. I stopped for a red light at Rosemead planning to turn right. I was patiently waiting for the oncoming traffic to complete their left turns. A young gal pulled up behind me. She wasn’t very patient. She flipped her finger and horned me. MISTAKE. Remember, I was hungry and I hurt. Without taking time for good judgment or common sense, my red hair roots stood straight up and I flipped her back with all five and spouted, “Up yours Sweetie. There are

cars coming.” My husband gulped as he reminded me to remember the times. I figured I didn’t care. I have to die sometime and I’d just as soon do it with a bullet in my head as mangled in a headon collision,. Well, that was how I felt for the moment anyway. I never made that right turn on the red. I waited for the green. When we finally rounded the corner, she shot around me and headed up the hill at full speed. When I got to the top, there she sat at a red light. I pulled up beside her but this time I resisted the urge to glance her way with a smug smile. I was getting closer to my veggie omelet and life was taking on new meaning. Sometimes I just have to go with my urge whether it’s a skip or a flip. That’s probably a MISTAKE.

BY FLORETTA LAUBER

Local Girls to ‘Camp in' at Whittier College Imagine being only 12or 13-years-old and heading off to college! That is the situation for nine local middle school girls who will spend the week of August 7-13 on Whittier College campus. The nine girls have been selected by the Arcadia Branch of American Association of University Women (AAUW) to attend Tech Trek Science/ Math Camp for Girls, a summer program for 8th grade girls sponsored by AAUWCalifornia. The goal of Tech Trek Camp is to help young women entering 8th grade in the fall to find interest, excitement and self-confidence in

the fields of math and science. Representing Arcadia are Jillian Martinez, Elsa Yang, Melissa Guo and Alana Gutierrez. From Temple City are Joanna Hua and Sandra Ngo. These young women will get a preview of college life while learning that math and science can be fun. Classes will be taught by credentialed teachers who emphasize hands on experiments. Women who are professionals in the fields of math, science and technology will be guest speakers.

Four Jefferson Middle School teachers, San Gabriel Unified School District, received school grants from CalRTA #71. President Joyce McGregor (far left) and School Grant Chairperson Patti Hahn (far right) congratulate school grant recipients Diane Tom, Laurene Steiner and Duane Mattern. Recipient Kenna McRay was not present for the occasion.

California Retired Teachers’ Association #71 (CalRTA) was pleased to award school grants to four Jefferson Middle School teachers in the San Gabriel Unified School District. Grant presentations took place at a recent faculty meeting. Principal Dr. Mayra Perez opened the meeting with a cordial welcome to CalRTA #71 School Grant Committee members. Patti Hahn, School Grant Committee chairperson, awarded grants to the following teachers who had made requests for materials, equipment and bus transportation costs for field trips: Laureen Steiner, Duane Mat-

tern and Diane Tom. Kenna McRay was not present but will receive her grant later. Other CalRTA #71 members present were President Joyce McGregor and publicity chair, Patricia Dietrich.

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 threaten fish and aquatic life. Prevent pollution; recycle used motor oil and filters!

“ZERO WASTE - YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN!”

Funded by a Grant from the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle)

An Adjustment - Cusco, Peru Offers Young Missionaries a Chance to help Those Less Fortunate BY JENNIFER ELROD In March, this newspaper ran an article about missing flamingos from a team fundraiser for young missionaries. After three more months of fundraisers, the nine team members had raised $1000 over the goal and were ready to embark on the trip of lifetime. Many young people spend their summers basking in the warmth of the sun by a nice pool or lounging around the beach, however, for myself and my team, we would travel to Peru through Christ’s Church of the Valley located in San Dimas to serve the city of Cusco, Peru alongside local missionaries, Ricky and Tracie Olivares. With a rocky start to the trip with a layover that turned from 7 into 14 hours, we finally made it to Cusco a day and half after leaving Los Angeles. Apparently coming from Southern California brought the rain to Cusco for their winter season, where it never rains.

Paid Advertisement

We spent 10-days traveling through the city working at the church doing VBS activities, like a Noah’s Ark bible lesson via puppet show. We volunteered at a special needs hospital, made and delivered food baskets , painted the interior of the church, and painted a community member’s house. We shared life experiences with those willing to listen, played games and did crafts with the kids, practiced our Spanish, tried the local fare of guinea pig and alpaca dishes, and hiked the many stairs through the hillsides of Cusco at the elevation of 13,000 feet. One struggle among many short-term missionaries is adjusting to the area in which you are serving. For me personally, it was difficult to adjust to the altitude, even though I had altitude sickness pills. Having asthma and two slipped discs in my back did not help my situation either, after a flight or two of stairs, I was breathing heavily and

my heart racing- 11,000 feet is a big difference from the 500 feet of grand ol’ Monrovia. Also the adjustment can be difficult on the stomach, from basic bodily functions to staying hydrated, we all faced waves of diarrhea and stomach aches to just being irritable from exhaustion. The foods one consumes in foreign countries can also play havoc with your digestive track, we tried alpaca and guinea pig. Alpaca was actually tasty, it was a little bit of a chewier than beef. Guinea pig, however has the texture of chicken but has an odd after bite to it. We also ate a lot of other meats and starchy foods. One of the joys of traveling is getting to see different parts of the world, but I believe one of the greatest memories for me was watching the joy on the kids faces in playing clapping games and just getting to hug and love them.

Superscooper Firefighting Aircraft Lease Contract Approved for Duty In Los Angeles County To prepare for the 2011 fire season, County Mayor Michael D. Antonovich announced that the Board of Supervisors authorized a contract to lease two CL-415 SuperScoopers fire-fighting aircraft from the Government of Quebec for use by the Los Angeles County Fire Department. “To ensure our County Fire Department has the

tools they need to be fully prepared for fire season, these vital aircraft have been requested to supplement the Department’s water-dropping helicopters and other fire-suppression machinery,” said Antonovich. SuperScoopers are a fixed-wing aircraft that can carry up to 1,620 gallons of water and takes only 12 seconds to scoop water from a

lake and inject it with fire-resistant foam – a combination up to 3 times more effective than water alone. They can be airborne in as little as five minutes and fly three hours before refueling. The SuperScoopers are expected to arrive on Monday, September 1, 2011, and will be placed into service through November 31, 2011.

dangered species, both the City and the County thought it best to wait until the toads had left the field, which biologists predicted would happen in early August to September, when the field dries out and the toads seek a moister habitat. The field will be investigated again in the beginning of August, and if it is found to be toad-free, the county will apply for a permit from Pasadena to begin the debris removal process. If at that point, it is nesting seasons for birds (March 1 – August 31) a nesting bird survey will also have to be completed. According to the County Department of Public Works Principal Engineer Keith Lilley, debris must be removed from the dam every few years, but due to the 2009 Station Fire a large volume of sediment built up along the face of Devil’s Gate Dam and must be removed to allow for “proper operation of the valves and installing protective measures on the dam such as trash racks to keep debris from entering the valves.” This project will not impact mature vegetation. Sediment built up not only due to the Station Fire, but during the rainy season. According to Rix, 1.5-1.6 million cubic yards of material needs to be removed from behind

the dam. The County is beginning the process of completing an Environmental Impact Report on this removal process to determine what effect this removal would have on the environment, and what truck route would be best to use. However, until this report is completed, an interim project known as Devil’s Gate Dam Interim Measures Project will be completed removing 15,000 cubic yards of debris to keep the dam safe and clear out inlets. Pasadena did not want this material trucked through the neighborhoods, so they offered Johnson Field as a temporary holding ground. In terms of the debris removal and completion of the EIR, Rix says, “The sooner the better for protecting the dam and all the areas below the dam.” According to Lilley, the process will take “probably 18 months to 2 years.” This process will begin with scoping meetings which are tentatively scheduled for early October, where “[The] public expresses their concerns and comments about a project, and we would explain the expected purpose and need of a project.” Prior to any kind of construction work, the County would obtain permits from regulatory agencies and hire biologists to

conduct preconstruction surveys. They have not previously encountered issues with these toads. The EIR is completed by the Department of Public Works. “The City’s goal is to work closely with the county to protect our neighborhoods from all the truck traffic.” Rix said. The City is expected to consider the use of Johnson Field again at the August 1 City Council Meeting. “It’s going to be added in as one of our spreading basins,” Rix said, on the long term use of Johnson Field. A spreading basin is an area where rainwater collects and refurbishes the ground water for the water department. The debris that is being moved is made mostly of sediment and green waste, and contains some broken up pieces of rock. The County will see if there is usable material, and then decide what to do with the unusable debris. Current options include placing it in large pits in Irwindale, or using it to cover up landfills. Johnson Field could never become a permanent home for the debris, as it can only hold about 25,000 cubic yards, and there are over 1.5 million cubic yards of debris that must be removed.

Arcadia Police Officer Albert Matthies Remembered

Arcadia Police Officer Stark stands as honor guard for Officer Matthies who was killed in 1927.- Photo by Terry Miller

The 84th anniversary of the murder of Arcadia Police Officer Albert Matthies was remembered in a ceremony held at noon Monday July 18, 2011. Officer Matthies was killed in the line of duty on July 19, 1927 when he approached a vehicle on Northview now also renamed after officer Matthies. Officer Matthies is the only Arcadia Police Officer to be killed in the line of duty. The murder of Officer Matthies is memorialized at the following locations: • Plaque memorial at

Foothill Blvd/Northview Ave, Arcadia • Los Angeles County Peace Officers Memorial, Whittier • California Peace Officers Memorial, Sacramento • National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, Washington DC • The only Arcadia Police Officer to be killed in the line of duty is Albert E. Matthies. Officer Matthies was shot while detaining three young men near the intersection of Northview and

0%

Foothill in north Arcadia on July 18, 1927, shortly before midnight. Officer Matthies came upon the men inside a vehicle parked on Northview. The men were preparing to conduct a robbery at a business nearby. The rear seat passenger was Frank Miller. Miller pulled out a .45 cal handgun and shot at Matthies, striking him in the neck. Matthies died from the gunshot wound. Matthies died at 12:07 AM on July 19, 1927. • Leo Bertolina, a friend of Matthies, was riding along that night in the police car. Bertolina was able to scramble away after being shot at and hit with flying glass from windows being struck by gunfire. Bertolina telephoned for additional police assistance. The trio of suspects got away that night but were later apprehended in Los Angeles within days. The three suspects were later convicted of the murder of Officer Matthies and sentenced to prison. The shooter died in prison. The two accomplices were later paroled and died shortly after release.

Pasadena Entertainment and the Pasadena Convention Center have teamed to present Summer Soundzz, the ultimate Party on the Plaza featuring live music and dancing under the stars at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium Plaza. Acclaimed Tribute bands The Fab Four and The Spazmatics are set to perform at the city’s spectacular outdoor venue. This year, for the first time, Summer Soundzz is jazzing it up with a special concert by the one and only Big Sam’s Funky Nation. “Pasadena Entertainment is thrilled to announce the exciting line up for this year’s Summer Soundzz featuring the multi-talented Fab Four and Spazmatics as well as Big Sam’s Funky Nation, New Orleans’ hottest musical act,” said André Vener, Executive Producer of Pasadena Entertainment, the city’s premiere entertainment event production and marketing company. “This year, Pasadena turns 125. What’s more, it’s the 110th anniversary of Jazz legend Louis Armstrong’s birth. Pasadena has the unique opportunity to combine these two special occasions into the funkiest party around.” Big Sam’s Funky Nation is touring the US, performing for 110 days in a row to celebrate the 110th birthday of Louis Armstrong and, because of Big Sam’s long

standing relationship with Pasadena Entertainment, Pasadena is fortunate enough to have them perform on the only available date in their tour, August 4. Friday, July 29 - The Fab Four After recent sold out performances with California Philharmonic at the Festival on the Green and Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Fab Four is back by popular demand to perform its entire show at Summer Soundzz. The Fab Four Beatles tribute band sets them apart from other tribube bands with not only their precision arrangements but also to their attention to detail. With uncanny, note-for-note live renditions of Beatles’ songs, the Fab Four will make you think you are watching the real thing. This incredible stage show includes three costume changes representing every era of the Beatles. Hear record-perfect live performances of such classics as “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Yesterday,” “A Day In The Life,” “Penny Lane,” “Here Comes The Sun,” and “Hey Jude.” Friday, August 4 – Big Sam’s Funky Nation Big Sam’s Funky Nation is a driving force of urban funk. The only group that is not a cover band in Summer Soundzz, BSFN will perform their own amazing funk versions of covers. The band is led by trombone

powerhouse, Big Sam Williams, formerly the trombonist for the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, who the San Francisco Chronicle calls “the top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz.” Big Sam refuses to let the audience sit still. Between the band’s solos, Big Sam’s signature dance moves and his distinctive trombone riffs, the energy level is high voltage when this band takes the stage for a 100 minute straight set! BSFN’s signature Noladelic Powerfunk sound masterfully combines a rock sensibility with improv-style associated with jazz and the horn-heavy front section that’s the hallmark of big band funk.

Justices Reject Industry Claims, L.A. Law Protecting the Jobs of Employees Continued from page 1 health and safety standards or collective bargaining. “This is an important victory for tens of thousands of grocery workers who now don’t have to worry about losing their jobs simply because of a corporate ownership change,” said Roxana Tynan, deputy director at LAANE, which intervened in the case to defend the ordinance. “This decision is good for our families, our communities and our economy, which have already been hit hard by record unemployment in the past several years.” The L.A. grocery worker retention ordinance was enacted after a wave of supermarket ownership changes in which longtime employees were abruptly laid off. In passing the law, City Councilmembers argued that both the rights of workers and the interests of consumers would be protected. Similar legislation limiting layoffs in the wake of ownership changes has been enacted by numerous local and state governments. The ruling comes as supermarket chains in Southern

California are trying to make major cuts in health benefits for grocery employees, a stance that has triggered a growing chorus of community criticism. “Given the grocery industry’s efforts to eliminate basic job protections for its own workers, it’s hardly surprising that mega-corporations like Ralphs, Vons and Albertsons are now trying to eviscerate health care coverage for those same employees,” said Rabbi Jonathan Klein, executive director of Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice L.A. (CLUE-LA). “This ruling sends a clear message to the industry: live up to your rhetoric and treat your employees fairly.” Grocery workers were elated with the high court’s decision. “This means so much to me and my family,” said Jackie Gitmed, who has worked at Ralphs for 35 years. “I have had co-workers lose their jobs overnight when a company changes hands, and I’ve seen the toll it takes on them and the customers. Now we will all be protected.”

Yoga in the Garden

L.A. Arboretum offers rejuvenating classes in nature's splendor

Students across the country and around the world enjoy the many benefits of regular yoga practice including improved flexibility, balance and strength, as well as stress relief and mindfulness. Imagine how much those benefits would be multiplied if the practice could be done in a healing pastoral setting! This summer Los Angeles Arboretum and Botanical Gardens did just that. They are offering a new series of classes entitled Yoga in the Garden. Taking advantage of nature’s splendor, each class begins with a 10-15 min-

ute stroll to a different destination on the grounds followed by an hour-long traditional Indian hatha yoga practice in the open air. Certified yoga instructor Candyce Columbus says, “Yoga practice has been an integral part of my life and well-being for more than 16 years.” Since 2009 she has been sharing the knowledge passed on to her from many wonderful teachers and that which she gains from her ongoing personal study. “Regardless of fitness or flexibility I believe everyone can benefit from yoga.”

Each session includes asanas (yoga poses), pranayama (breathing exercises), vinaysa (yoga flow series), mudras (yoga in the hands), meditation (guided) and relaxation. Her classes are well-balanced, varied, informative and enjoyable. “I am dedicated to my students and to helping them lead active, healthy lives.” Columbus adds, “Teaching yoga surrounded by the beauty of nature is a dream come true for me! There is nothing so enlivening as practicing yoga with a soundtrack of birds and the

heavenly aromas of eucalyptus and blossoming flowers.” “Practicing yoga in a garden is yoga as it was originally intended,” comments longtime yoga student Carol Burrill of Monrovia. “It’s good to get out of a studio and connect with the Earth’s energy under our feet, breathe the abundance of oxygen in the fresh air, and become conscious of our connection with the natural world around us.” Yoga in the Garden classes take place 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. on Thursdays. The next session begins on Thursday, August 4. Another session begins Thursday, September 8. Fees are $30 per series of four classes and include admission to the Arboretum so students can stay to enjoy the relaxing environment afterward. Fees for Arboretum members are $25 per series. To register or for more information call Education Manager Jill Berry at 626821-4623 or email her at jill. berry@arboretum.org.

An Adjustment - Cusco, Peru Offers Young Missionaries a Chance to help those less Fortunate Continued from page 6

The author, with some of her teammates and local merchants in Cusco. Center: View of Cusco via the Church. On the right, the team from CCV poses in the Plaza De Armas. – Photos by Jennifer Elrod

The majority of the children in Cusco come from broken homes where alcoholism and sexual abuse are common. The children just need to be loved and need the opportunity to be kids, verses

having to sell tourist items on the street to help provide for their families. Also to see the beauty when overlooking the city and seeing a rainbow, a memory of the Cusco flag

like the rainbow in the story of Noah’s Ark, as a sign of hope and promise for a better future for the city and the hope that I will be returning to the city in the future. I

would not trade my breathless, good-willed adventure through the city of Cusco, Peru for a day in the warmth of the sun at a California beach.

During the last seven-day period, the Police Department handled 609 service events, resulting in 102 investigations. Following are the last week’s highlighted issues and events: 72-Hour Mental Evaluation On July 8 at 10:30 a.m., a caller reported seeing a female subject carrying a pistol in the 100 block of West Foothill. Officers located the subject, who was now walking on Lime, approaching Magnolia. The officers observed that the female was carrying a pistol. Once the female saw the officers, she immediately complied with their commands. The pistol turned out to be a very realistic replica of a semi-automatic pistol. As the officers interviewed the female, it became apparent she was a danger to herself and others, and she was taken to a hospital where she was held for 72-hour mental evaluation. Juvenile Problem / Fight-

ing in a Public Place - Suspects Cited On July 8 at 8:44 p.m., officers responded to a park in the 300 block of South Myrtle regarding a fight.

The driver said that he did not have his driver’s license with him, but identified himself and provided a driver’s license number. The officer became suspicious and with further investigation discovered that the driver did in fact have his license on him and he had provided a false name to the officer. A computer check with the driver’s actual name revealed a no-bail warrant. The subject was arrested and taken into custody. Driving Under the Influence - Suspect Arrested On July 9 at 4:25 a.m., a vehicle was stopped for a traffic violation in the 700 block of West Huntington. The driver was determined to be under the influence of alcohol and was arrested.

The security officers had made foot passes in the area and had not seen the toolbox prior to 4 p.m. Officers were dispatched to the location to inspect the toolbox. Based on a recent threat reported in the news and the unusual location of the toolbox, the Los Angeles County Bomb Squad was requested and responded to the location. The toolbox was opened by the bomb squad and no suspicious items were found. Vandalism - Suspect Arrested On July 11 at 6:09 p.m., a witness reported a male juvenile gang member was spray painting gang graffiti in the 100 block of East Walnut in the alley.

Bicycle Theft On July 11 at 7:06 p.m., a subject who lives in the 700 block of South Myrtle reported his bicycle stolen. His bicycle, a 10-speed silver mountain bike, was secured by locking the front wheel to the bike rack on the third floor of the parking garage. The suspect removed the frame from the front wheel. It appeared that two other bicycles were stolen in a similar fashion, but officers were unable to locate

additional victims. Investigation continuing. Vehicle Tampering - Suspect Arrested On July 12 at 11 a.m., a business in the 200 block of East Huntington called police to report a male subject rummaging through a car that was not his.

She quickly apprehended him nearby and he was arrested for vehicle tampering. Robbery On July 12 at 9:51 p.m., a business in the 300 block of West Huntington reported a robbery. The suspect approached a cashier with his hand in his jacket pocket. He threatened to shoot her if she didn’t give him the money from the register. After obtaining the cash, he ran south on Magnolia, then west on Cypress, out of sight. The suspect was described as a male, African American, approximately 30 years old, six

feet tall, about 200 pounds, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans. He had a tattoo next to his right eye. Investigation continuing. Driving Under the Influence/Marijuana - Suspect Arrested On July 12 at 10:57 a.m., an officer stopped a female driver at Walnut and Fifth.

Monrovia is a Business Friendly Town – Complete with Consierge Continued from page 1

locations in Tokyo, Shanghai and Paris. This new restaurant is open Monday through Wednesday from 11:30 am to 11 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 11:30 am to 2 am. It has a full bar and does take reservations as well as credit cards. It does not cater, but will do take out orders, however several people who have gone to Oto Oto report that the ambiance is quite nice with a perfectly acceptable noise level. They have said that it is not really a fitting venue for children. For a child friendly experience, try Big Shrimps-they even have children’s plates - 123 East Colorado, Monrovia. Yes, they too are relatively new having opened in April this year. Bacani reported that he had received a phone call from one of the individuals involved in locating Oto Oto in Monrovia who reported they were starting to open restaurants in other Southern California locations. The only problem they had was that they couldn’t understand why they were not getting the same cooperation from other cities that they had found in Monrovia. Without being too specific there was one city

which was giving them problems according to Bacani. I won’t comment except to say that they came to the better valley first, the San Gabriel Valley. Contacted by this newspaper several people in Monrovia City Government including the City Manager, Scott Ochoa, gave Oto Oto very positive reviews. Ochoa said that his wife especially likes the sushi, but, that being a less daring soul, he preferred the teriyaki. And these are not the only businesses reporting positive experiences moving into Monrovia. A Snail’s Pace, a running store which already had four locations has moved into the Paragon Center on Myrtle Avenue. The new store which will replace the venue currently in Paseo Colorado in Pasadena has been open for several weeks now. Hal Hollister, a spokesman for the chain said the process of moving to Monrovia was easier because of the cooperation of city staff. “We knew what our demographics were and Monrovia fit them,” Hollister said. He explained that the company had wanted to get “into a community rather than a center.”

Charlie’s House is a new business which will be opening on Myrtle Avenue in the complex at the northeast corner with Lemon Avenue. According to the store’s owner, Kristen Miller, who was raised and still lives in Arcadia, she decided to open her business here because “I love Monrovia.” The shop will be life a little Pottery Barn according to Miller. She said that she believes people “want nice things in their homes, but they shouldn’t have to pay too much for it.” She explained that she had always enjoyed buying nice things for her own home and that it “gives people an emotional high.” She also praised the cooperation of the city staff. When it was suggested that she might want to contact another local merchant for advice, Pam Fitzpatrick, she laughed. “She came in here (meaning the shop) yesterday as I was setting up and introduced herself. She said she found that typical of Monrovia. Told of these experiences, Ochoa said he was not surprised. “We like doing business with people who like to do business. Darlene Sanchez, the Senior Projects Manager of the

Monrovia Redevelopment Agency (MRA) said that with many such projects the city creates a RED team which consists of members of several departments. RED stands for Redevelopment, Economic Development and such a team might be comprised of various department members including the Redevelopment Agency, members of the Economic Development team, the Finance and Community Development (Planning) Department along with the City Manager, Public Information Officer, Dan Bell and other departments as needed. Sanchez explained that each project is assigned a specific team member as the go to person for that project. The team member will then direct the individuals involved in the project to the correct person in the correct department for each step in the development. She explained that it was not a matter of suspending the rules for any project but rather helping people understand those rules and work their way through the process. Mayor Mary Ann Lutz said that she was proud of the city’s responsiveness to business. Of the RED team and the assignment of a specific person to each project, Lutz

said: “It is like having a business concierge.” Project Coordinator Lauren Vasquez , who also works on the RED teams said that they are used not just to attract new businesses to Monrovia, but to work to expand some of those that are already here. As an example of actively bringing a new business to Monrovia, she cited Oto Oto. WorleyParsons shows that businesses that are already here consider expanding their footprint within the community. The addition of another facility for that company will make it one of the city’s largest employers. She also mentioned the city’s Economic Development Plan which is available on the city’s web site. The plan calls for a three pronged attack by the city to keep its economy strong. The first part is retaining existing businesses through incentives, outreach and support. The next is to attract a diverse mix of businesses to keep Monrovia stable and secure. The last portion of this program is marketing the city to new businesses. In essence the goal is to attract, retain and grow the economy of the city. And about the rumors that the city is pulling out of

the deal with the Gold Line Construction Authority, the City Manager’s report for last week should lay that to rest. According to the report, the city did remove the item from the agenda for its meeting this week, but it went on the say “This removal is not an indication that Monrovia is walking away from the negotiating table. To the contrary, we continue to negotiate and work through our differences with GLCA.” For more information on the MRA and the RED Teams, see the city’s Web Site: www.ci.monrovia.ca.us and click on the Redevelopment Agency in the left hand column.
