Crawford Lawsuit Dismissed - Blogger Gets No Relief

The City of Sierra Madre Expressly Denied that it Breached any Duty or Obligation, and Maintains it fully Complied with the Proposition 218 Rate Increase Process BY TERRY MILLER Local blogger John Crawford is declaring “victory” over the city of Sierra Madre in a lawsuit that was settled with the city accepting no wrong doing. In fact, not one item in the suit was triumphant. The taxpayers of Sierra Madre footed the bill for this suit for which the full costs have yet to be assessed according to city manager Elaine Aguilar, “We do not have a time estimate on the amount of time the City staff spent researching and defending the City against the lawsuit. The City did however incur attorney fees, but I won’t have the amount for another few weeks – there is about a one to two month lag in our receipt of attorney invoices.” Aguilar said. The alleged proposition 218 violation was unfounded. Crawford agreed to “settle” the case before continuing the costly litigation. Maintaining their innocence from any wrong doing regarding the water rate hike issue throughout the proceed-

ings, the city of Sierra Madre challenged the complaint after former Mayor Kurt Zimmerman filed suit on behalf of

Crawford. In May of 2011, John Crawford filed a lawsuit in hopes of invalidating the

City’s recent water rate increase. In June, the City responded to the lawsuit challenging the complaint; and

shortly thereafter the plaintiff approached the City seeking a “non-monetary settlement” according to a city issued press

release Monday. “The City was very confident it would prevail in court; however, the City Council decided to accept Mr. John Crawford’s settlement offer and the case was officially dismissed on July 29th. The City Council agreed to accept the settlement offer, basing their decision upon what they felt was best for the City’s residents and water customers, noting that further judicial proceedings would result in additional legal fees. In exchange for the dismissal, the City agreed that in the event the City was to consider a water rate increase, before May 1, 2014, the City would continue to provide water customers with a Fact Sheet, similar to one it provided during the last rate increase process, as well as information regarding low income discounts, which is always available at City Hall and the Public Library. The City expressly denied that it breached any duty or obli-

Monrovia Reads Holds Chili Cook-off BY SUSAN MOTANDER The literacy nonprofit, Monrovia Reads held it’s (hopefully) First Annual Chili Bowl on Saturday, July 16. The event was hosted by Eric and Terri Moziloand and Julie Gentile Soldo and her husband Tony Soldo hired a trio of musicians, The Delgado Brothers, which provided the music for the evening event. Of course part of the entertainment at the event was the Chili Cook-off itself. There were 10 contestants. Participant included Nancy Bond, Fire Chief Chris Donovan, Dunia Hamden, Phil Lujan, Julie Gentile Soldo, and Karen Straley-Taylor. A

tie for 3rd place went to Dave Scarminach and Christy Larson who titled her Chili “Brisket in the Rye” as a tribute to literacy and J.D. Salinger. Second place honors were garnered by Donna Baker with the win going to City Councilman Tom Adams. This was not a people’s choice award, but rather the rating was done by a distinguished panel of local restaurateurs. The judges who included Rudy Castrellon of Rudy’s, Dave Rivanis of Market Grill, and Dustin Nicholarsen of Cafe Opera and The Derby, took their responsibility very seriously.

They critiqued the chili combinations in a blind taste test and made notes and comments on the quality of the meat, the flavors and texture of the various recipes. In the end the voting was close and the winners were all those in attendance who were allowed to taste right along with the judges. The menu was not limited to Chili alone. Jake’s Roadhouse catered with dessert coming in the form of ice cream from King Kone. Good friends, good music and good food all for a good cause, it was a great event.

Friday Night Live gets Off to Rockin’ Start

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ron Ellington Shy got this summer’s Friday Night Live, presented by the Sierra Madre Chamber of Commerce, off to

a rockin’ start, with an appreciative crowd spending much of the evening in Sierra Madre’s Kersting Court watching Shy perform songs by Otis Redding, Dobie Gray, and many others. In fact, from the Chamber’s perspective, the music may have been a little too good. Friday Night Live is an annual Sierra Madre event in which the Cham-

ber of Commerce invites folks from all over to come enjoy music in the town “square”, dine in local restaurants, and shop in the village stores. Shoppers who spend $35 in a retail store or $50 in a restaurant can then bring their receipt to the Chamber booth to be entered in a drawing to be held the final night of Friday Night Live, August 26th.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor: From Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz: A Message of Thank You to Senator Bob Huff, Assembly Members Anthony Portantino and Tim Donnelly: As Mayors and City Council Members, we find it hard to believe that Governor Brown and the California State Legislature actually voted to eliminate Redevelopment Agencies from the State of California in spite of clear facts that Redevelopment abates blighting influences and brings positive economic development benefits to our cities and the state. It is particularly disturbing that the Legislature

would ignore the fact that less than a year ago the citizens of California voted overwhelming for Prop 22 – an initiative designed to protect local government funding and specifically, Redevelopment. The sad fact is that they did approve the elimination Redevelopment; but not all State Legislators turned their back on the people they represent. We are proud to stand next to and thank Senator Bob Huff, Assembly Member Tim Donnelly and especially the only democrat to oppose the bill, Assembly Member Anthony Portantino. Taking principled stands that are not politi-

cally expedient is not easy. Representation that is meaningful and preserves local government serves all Californians and we are grateful to be represented by such fine public servants. Thank you Senator Bob Huff, Assembymembers Tim Donnelly and Anthony Portantino! With gratitude from the Mayors and City Council Members from the following cities: Anaheim, La Verne, Bradbury, Monrovia, City of Industry, Pasadena, Claremont, Placentia, Diamond Bar, San Dimas, Duarte, Sierra Madre, Glendora, South Pasadena, Highland, Temple City, La Canada Flintridge and Walnut.

Send your letters to: tmiller@beaconmedianews.com prizewinners picked, each receiving a Sierra Madre shopping and dining spree valued at about $500. The entertainment for this week is Sierra Madre resident Mike Tims, formerly of The New Christy Minstrels, sponsored by

Mountain Views News. Mr. Tims will sing and play a wide variety of favorite songs for all ages. New to Friday Night Live this year are weekly themes, this week being “Outrageous Hat” week. Shoppers wearing outra-

geous hats downtown Friday may just win a $25 gift certificate to Butterfly Effect Day Spa. Friday Night Live is held from 6:30 to 9pm each Friday in late July and August, this year through August 26th.

There he stood, right in the middle of the street. He was nonchalantly smoking his cigarette and talking on his cellular phone. I mean RIGHT in the middle, be-

tween the north bound and south bound traffic. At a major intersection yet. There was no divide, just a yellow line. The south bound were sitting still but the easterly moving were now turning north, right in front of him. He didn’t flinch, just took another drag of his cigarette between words. Some of the drivers panicked when they turned and suddenly saw him standing there. They hit brakes. Their own screeched, the sound added upon by those behind. He waved them on, never looking up. The driv-

ers waved too as they maneuvered around him. Theirs were not friendly waves. The light changed. He casually strolled across the remaining half of the street. The phone never left his ear. The cigarete did leave his lips. He flipped it in front of my car. My green light came on and I started forward. I was sure his cigarette was going to lodge in my tire tread. It would then flip up against my gas tank. There would be a terrible explosion and I would be in little pieces, scattered all over the intersection of Baldwin Avenue and Du-

arte Road. I glanced to my left to see if the car in the next lane was close enough to be affected by the explosion. It was starting forward right with me. The driver was stretched up to the rear view mirror applying her lipstick. Her car was moving into my lane. I realized I might not live to explode. I beeped my horn. She smiled and waved at me. I made it through the intersection. I must have missed he smoldering cigarette. I didn’t explode. I didn’t relax either. Keeping an alert eye peeled, I noticed an elderly lady waiting in her

vintage Lincoln to exit the parking lot of the old Hub Center. She was hesitant. She needed time and space. A young lady, make that a young woman, was waiting behind her. She was in a terrible hurry. Her little red Prelude shot around the hesitant Lincoln and ripped in front of me. Instinct took my foot to the brake and my eyes to the rear view mirror. What did I see? An approaching 4x4 sports vehicle. The driver was smiling and talking on his cellular........ Hope to talk with you next week.

Dre’s Destinations Temecula Tastings BY ANDREA OLIVAS I recently went to visit a dear friend in Temecula for the day. In discussing what we should do while there, wineries came to mind first as well as a visit to Old Town Temecula. We started the day in Old Town. Walking through the quaint city it brought the feeling of being in the old west, with the wooden walkways creaking as we moved along. We ventured into Temecula Olive Oil Company. Surprisingly, that was where our tasting would begin. We mozied on over to the “bar” where we were served a variety of family made olive oils and balsamics. My favorite had to be the Citrus Reserve, who would have thought blood oranges tasted so good combined with olive oil? As we walked around historic Old Town, The Old Town Sweet Shop and Old Town Rootbeer Company were definitely first on our list. These are a must for anyone visiting the city. Once we finished in Old Town we made our way to our final destination - Ponte Family Estate and Winery. As we pulled in the driveway of the barn style Tasting Room, we immediately knew we were in the country, wine country! Our tour of the winery and grounds started, naturally, with a glass of their Moscato in hand. Our friendly guide Ty showed us all that the winery had to offer. The tour felt more

like we were catching up with an old friend. We momentarily forgot it was a business. We explored the winemaking process and even tasted a Port wine straight from the oak barrels in their Mission style Barrel Room. Ponte Vineyards are among the oldest and largest in the Temecula Wine Country. Claudio Ponte has owned the 310-acre vineyards since 1984. The vineyards include single named grape varieties such as Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc. I’ll be honest I am more of a white wine and sweet wine drinker. Once in the tasting room, Ty introduced as to their most popular hand crafted wine called Beverino. It’s a sweet boysenberry and black raspberry infused red wine that I am officially hooked on, you have try it! Shhh ….. we had a sneak peak at what the accommodations will look like when their two-story, sixty-room boutique hotel, Ponte Vineyard Inn, is completed in April of 2012. These modern yet homey feeling rooms will be the perfect relaxation place after a fun filled day enjoying the winery. The hotel will be complete with a garden which leads to a pond. We ended our day at the all-outdoor restaurant featuring casual Californian cusine with an Italian influence. The Restaurant at Ponte where Chef Vin-

cent Logan has created an amazing menu was delizioso. I am a huge bread person and their rosemary bread with scallion olive oil was out of this world. I experienced the roasted half chicken with pan jus along with fried basmati rice and Temecula summer vegetables.My friend, Dianna , enjoyed a grilled pork tenderloin with a port cherry ginger sauce complete with truffle mashed potatoes and summer vegetables. These dishes gave savory a whole new meaning. It is no wonder they are an award winning venue. Beginning in August when you take a tour you may also be able to taste the grapes right off the vines. For more information about Ponte Family Estate and Winery contact (951) 694-8855 or visit www.pontewinery.com

Ponte Family Estate and Winery in beautiful Temecula Wine Country is open daily from 10am - 5pm to roam the grounds of course enjoy the delizioso wine on hand.

It was a great party! Good food, entertainment, line dancing and a full house. Dan Belling (supervisor) introduced Mayor Gary Kovacic who welcomed guests and gave the following history: “On this date, 20 years ago, the City of Arcadia opened the doors to this beautiful facility. A senior citizens commission was established in 1978 to serve as a liaison between the senior citizen community and the City Council and to investigate the possibility to build a Community Center. In 1988, the City Council decided to build a center and construction began on this facility in 1990 and the 18,800 square foot community center and adjoining recreation department office was constructed in a little more than a year. On July 19, 1991, city officials and approximately 400 members of the community gathered for the opening dedication of the Arcadia Community Center to dedi-

cate the $4.5 million structure that would house the city’s senior citizen and recreational programs and services. The Arcadia Community Center has become a focal point for hundreds of senior citizens, enriching their lives by entertaining them, teaching them, dispelling loneliness and providing a great environment for making new friends. In addition, the Community Center has become a great resource for youth and families as a multitude of lifelong learning and health and wellness courses are offered to meet the educational, physical and emotional needs of the population.” City Council members and department heads were in attendance. It was nice to see retired directors Roberta White and Jerry Collins, also Betty Harris, who goes back before the Center to service for seniors at City Hall. Sara Somogy is Director. Congratulations to all those in the past and present who make this marvelous facility possible.

Arcadia AAUW Presents Two Woman of Achievement Awards The Arcadia Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) had the double pleasure of honoring members of Fanny Kuo and Joanna Liang by presenting each with the 2011 Woman of Achievement Award at a recent luncheon meeting.

For the past three years, the fund-raising efforts of Kuo and Liang have resulted in cultural events that have delighted their fellow AAUW members and guests and enabled Arcadia AAUW to contribute generously to the Educational Foundation. Fanny Kuo was graduated from Tong-Hai in Tai-

wan with a BA degree in Chinese literature. She also has a background in music and is a classically trained soprano. In Taiwan, she assisted in the music department of an arts academy.

Monrovia National Night Out Encourages Community Safety Continued from page 1 gling with local police. Residents could try on a ballistic vest and helmet, and climb inside a police vehicle capable of handling .50 calibre bullet fire. The vehicle was part of Foothill Special Enforcement Team, a regional tactical special weapons team founded in 2005 to assist in making locations secure. According to Monrovia Police Lieutenant and Assistant Team Commander Nels Ortlund, who has been on the team since its creation, the team has “Never taken a life,” nor have they shot anybody. They also have never had a team member shot or injured. FSET trains every two weeks, and goes on approximately 12 missions / year, 80 percent of which are high risk search warrant missions. Residents also were able to obtain free child ID cards with their children’s fingerprints by insurance company New York Life.

Monrovia resident Donna Espinosa felt that getting the ID card was important “for safety,” and had her daughter Hana Tucker fingerprinted by New York Life Agent Mark Wurtumberg. As well as the fingerprinting program, Monrovia PD also had a booth encouraging drivers to work for community safety. “[We’re] trying to get people to slow down in residential areas,” said Monrovia Police Officer John Meeks, as he handed out signs for residents to display in their front yards for 60 days, reminding drivers not to go faster than 25 mph. Monrovia Police also had a DARE table, despite no longer being able to provide a DARE officer to local schools due to the financial constraints, according to an officer who wished to remain anonymous. Current officers cannot just volunteer time to the DARE program, in order for DARE to start

up again there would have to be a full time employed DARE officer, and financially the Police Department cannot currently provide that. As well as seasoned officers, there were also volunteer explorers at the event. Two such explorers were 16-year-old D. Ramos and 17-year-old CJ Garett. Garett, a lifelong Monrovia resident has been an explorer for two years and plans to join the police force when he is old enough. ‘This is my first time doing [National Night Out]” Garett said, “It’s a nice little set up.” This year’s National Night Out brought out a crowd of all ages, and was a community step towards raising awareness, becoming involved, and preventing crime through education. For more info on any of the programs above, or on crime prevention, call the Monrovia Police Department at (626)-256— 8000.

Local Live Music Scene is Alive and Well in East Pasadena

National Night Out, Arcadia’s 108th Birthday, and Summer Concert, Aug 4, 6p.m. at City Hall

Wednesday Jam Night is a Blast at Novel Café BY TERRY MILLER

Why they call it “sittingin” probably harks back to the big band era where many musicians sat while playing their instruments. However, the only musician sitting down Wednesday night was drummer Mike Dubin, and he wasn’t exactly taking it easy. This is tough work! Skip Heller, Wyatt Stone, and Mike Dubin are amazing musicians individually as well as collectively. But when a Blaster walked into the Novel Café last Wednesday night to “sit in”, the energy soared into the record books. Phil Alvin, from the Blasters, casually walked into the popular Novel Café with his guitar, sat down for a couple of minutes and got up and played some incredible songs that literally mesmerized the audience for several numbers. While growing up in the working-class Los Angeles suburb of Downey,

Calif., the Alvin brothers snuck off to blues and country nightclubs, catching artists like Willie Dixon and TBone Walker, befriending Big Joe Turner, and educating themselves in the traditions that their band, the Blasters, would pay homage to on their 1980 debut album, American Music. With Phil singing and Dave handling guitar and songwriting, the Blasters came roaring out of the L.A. punk scene with authentic rock ‘n roll. It’s not uncommon to see some really big names just pop in for a set or even just one song. Mike Dubin, for example, who has been sitting in on his beautiful vintage Leedy snare drum just released a cool CD named City Stops with Holly Kane. This is a major story in itself; we’ll get to that a later date. Check back with www. pasadenaindependent.com

for more details. A regular at Novel on Saturday’s is up and coming singer Leila Avila whose dad John sat in with her a while ago. John is the bass player from Oingo Boingo. Claire Costa and Carlos Guitaros also sat in with the band last Wednesday. If this past week is anything to go by, the music scene is alive and really cool in East Pasadena. Don’t miss your chance to see top musicians at Novel on Wednesdays for the Jam Night as well as Friday and Saturday evenings too. With the wisdom of Wisconsin Music Guru (WMG) Dave Peterson and the live music at Novel Café, its bound to get to the next level. What better way to do that than have a jam night where talented pros can get together and share their knowledge and ambitions with others as well as share the stage for a more than appreciative audience. The music jam nights started some top local lads who know the business and it has grown exponentially in the first weeks. If you’re interested in sitting in or just checking out the Jam Night, you’d be wise to do so early on Wednesdays as it fills up fast. Novel Café is located in the 1700 block of East Colorado Street just East of PCC. There is no cover charge, ever. 1713 E Colorado Blvd Pasadena, (626) 683-3309 novelcafe.com

Out with a concert on the lawn Thursday, August 4th at 6:00 PM. This is in line with the Summer Concert Series and will host the above-listed festivities and special events. Additional parking for the event can be found at the Santa Anita Race Track, Gate 5 (Huntington Dr./Colorado Pl.) entrance. A bit about National Night Out: NATIONAL NIGHT OUT is designed to: • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;

• Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. Last year’s National Night Out campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. In all, over 37 million people participated in National Night Out 2010.

Goats are Back on Brush Clearance Duty in Duarte Sometimes the best man for the job is a goat. Or a herd of goats, especially when the job is clearing dry brush from steep hillsides. City of Duarte officials have once again contracted with Ranchito Tivo Boer Goats to clear two areas of the Duarte foothills identified by the City’s field services department in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Fire Department and Department of Agriculture staff. From now until mid-August, the herd of goats will be munching their way through dry brush and vegetation at the top of Greenbank, east of Briar Summit, and on the hillside surrounding the Duarte “D” at the top of Westvale north and west of the Duarte Mesa area. Duarte will pay Ranchito Tivo Boer Goats $12,200, plus all the rubble the goats can eat. “Our goal is to stop the spread and reduce the overall amount of brush in and around homes adjacent to the open space areas of our

community,” said City Manager Darrell George. Complete removal of brush, which could lead to soil erosion, is not a goal of the project, he said. We’ve hired the goats several times before and they do a great job. Prior to enlisting the aid of goats the City relied on mechanical means of clearance to maintain fire breaks. Ranchito Tivo Boer Goats is part of the Los Angeles County Fire Department approved goat vendor list, and has worked with the cities of Monrovia, Chino Hills, San Diego, and the Chino Basin Water Conservation District. The utilization of goats is a non-polluting method of brush clearance, considered to achieve better results than mechanical means. Electrified fencing keeps the goats within the designated boundaries. Goats are typically quiet, odor-free, resistant to poison oak, and emit a small, pellet-shaped biodegradable waste material that naturally

think we were big Beatle fans. I’ll never darken to doors of Charlie O’s when in NYC. Sorry Dad, this is one thing we cannot forgive. That famous black and white footage of the Beatles running to the stage at Shea Stadium with thousands of screaming teenage girls will always haunt me...we COULD have been there, we WOULD have met the lads from Liverpool. A chance of a lifetime, lost in a New York City speakeasy. So on Friday night last, it was Deja Vu all over again. Screaming girls, four lads who looked like they came back in time from Liverpool

circa 1965, and a perfect night for reminiscing about what should have been. Yes, the Beatles (aka the Fab Four) were on stage and in top gear for an incredible couple of hours of the greatest songs ever recorded. It wasn’t Shea Stadium but the next best thing, Pasadena Civic outdoor venue on a balmy summer evening. The people in the “cheap seats” who clapped their hands outside the paid perimeter seemed to enjoy the music as much as those who rattled their jewelry as they applauded John, Paul, George and Ringo. Starting off with the

mop-top early days, the lads sang some of the very best of the very best Beatles songs with such emotion and style that if you closed your eyes, you really could have been at Shea Stadium. The screams, luckily, weren’t as loud as to drown out the lads but they were nonetheless enthusiastic about seeing history relived in such a talented quartet. As the time pressed on, the lads would don different outfits depicting the era of the songs they were about to play. The most dramatic

were spot on and a powerful rendition of the Album’s namesake song blasted Pasadena’s rock and roll roof sky high. The audience was a good mix of all ages proving that the Beatles were still the number one band in the world even though they have not played live since 1971 and considering John and George are no longer with us. Some of the younger audience members were asked what they thought af-

combined with dedicated live musicians and hit after hit everyone can sing along to.” said Stephanie Lopez, who travelled over an hour in Friday night traffic to see the lads. I, for one, couldn’t have asked for a better show. These guys are terrific and talented in their own right but when they become the Beatles, they are off on a

Civic Theatre and especially to Lauren Lewis of Pasadena Entertainment for promoting this truly amazing concert. Dad, may you rest in peace, we do forgive you, really. I know I was at Shea Stadium in spirit-1965. The Concert series continues Thursday night with a tribute to Louis Armstrong with Big Sam’s Funky Nation.

Crawford Lawsuit Dismissed - Blogger Claims City Agreed to “Mend Errors of their Ways” Continued from page 1 gation, and maintains it fully complied with the Proposition 218 rate increase process.” Mayor John Buchanan stated, “The informational piece requested in this settlement is information that we provided in the past, and we agreed to provide it again because it will assist residents in making informed decisions. We would have agreed to do this without a lawsuit. Although I believe there was no basis for this lawsuit, this resolution ends the matter at no cost to residents.” The Sierra Madre Weekly contacted Sierra Madre City Manager, Elaine Aguilar for comment on the case. Ms. Aguilar did offer an addition to Mayor Buchanan’s quote in the city issued Press Release, “Continuing down the path of litigation would have not only cost both parties additional fees, but

would have also diverted City staff from being able to concentrate on current projects and programs; now that this matter is settled, we can get onto other pressing matters.” Crawford writes this explanation on his blog Monday: “My lawsuit was intended to shine a light on the City’s allegedly illegal conduct in violating Proposition 218. If the extensive coverage of the lawsuit in the local newspapers, newspapers throughout California, along with this blog is any guide, I was very successful. “He also adds…. “Most importantly, my purposes in litigating were to force a recalcitrant City to comply with Proposition 218’s notice requirements and to ensure that low income families receive a discount for the water they consume.” What Crawford actually said in the suit in item

#32 (PDF available on our website) is this: …”.the Notice stated that a discount was available for “low income?” The Notice did not contain, however, a definition of the term “low income,” or state the maximum amounts and individual or family could earn and still qualify for such a discount.” In Section IV, item 17 of Crawford’s suit proclaimed “Petitioner is aggrieved party and is beneficially interested in both the outcome of this litigation and the relief requested because he is injured by the City’s adoption of the Ordinance on Jan 11, 2011.” In Crawford’s suit; Article 1, paragraph 1. Stated that “This case arises out of the City Council of Sierra Madfre’s adoption of ordinance 1312 on January 11, 2011 significantly increasing water costumers’ (SIC) water rates.

Attempts to get a comment on the lawsuit dismissal from John Crawford were unsuccessful. However, he did respond with this rather cutting remark in an email received at 8:35 PM Monday: “Thank you for the opportunity, Terry. I have decided that I will answer your question on my site. I want people to have the opportunity to see the answer.” We edited another malevolent comment in his email which bore no relevance to the issue. Then, yesterday morning Crawford posted these responses to my question on his blog: “It was not dismissed, Terry. Rather it was pulled by myself and my Attorney because the City Council agreed to mend the error of their ways and not lie to the residents any more in order to

get their money.” Crawford went on to say: “Well Terry, if you think running a bait and switch operation designed to cozen cash out of ratepayers who at that particular time might have actually trusted their city isn’t a bad thing, then perhaps you don’t really give a damn for those who your paper claims to speak for. Maybe you really are just a City Hall apple polisher who only sees to their needs, and not those of the people.” According to city officials, the City of Sierra Madre has agreed to nothing in the “settlement”, no money was awarded and the city has said it would send documents to water customers that it had already prepared, regardless of the Crawford/Zimmerman suit. The lawsuit alleged the city “circumvented both the

John Crawford

letter and spirit of California’s Proposition 218.” The Sierra Madre City Council, following months of debate, approved a rate hike of roughly 7.5 percent a year for four years, with slightly larger increases for those who consume more water. The last water rate hike went into effect in 2006.

Speaker John A. Pérez Calls Debt Ceiling Agreement Paralysis Prevention Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) released the following statement regarding the debt ceiling agreement in Washington D.C.: “Today’s agreement on

raising the debt ceiling will prevent the paralysis of our nation’s economy and allow us to move forward on addressing our country’s priorities. “To this point, Republicans have allowed the most ex-

treme elements of their party to hold the nation hostage by playing a high-stakes game of brinksmanship that could have had devastating consequences. “Thankfully, the President has set the stage for a

balanced long term solution that includes revenues. And though the specifics of the first round of savings will not be known for several weeks, we are relieved to see that there should be little if any imme-

diate impact on the balanced and on-time state budget we passed earlier this summer. It is critical that we prevent further debilitating cuts to schools, seniors and job creation efforts. “We look forward to

hearing the solutions that will be brought forth by the bipartisan committee, which bears an enormous responsibility to protect students and our most vulnerable citizens, while investing in our collective future.”

ExpEriEncE the miracles.

Dan F. Ausman Named Methodist Hospital President and CEO

Dan F. Ausman of New Methodist Hospital, President and Ceo

Methodist Hospital announced today the appointment of Arizona health care executive Dan F. Ausman as president and chief executive officer. Ausman is scheduled to begin August 29. “Dan’s appointment as president and CEO of Methodist Hospital assures that the mission and values of Methodist Hospital will continue. He is an extremely talented leader with exceptional credentials and experience,” said Michael Hoover, chairman of the hospital’s board of directors. “Under Dan’s leadership, we can be certain that Methodist Hospital will continue to focus on exceptional patient experiences and meeting the needs of our community. I am excited to welcome Dan and to have his leadership for The Next Generation of Care.” Current CEO Dennis Lee announced his retirement plans earlier this year. “Methodist Hospital is indeed fortunate to have attracted someone as experienced and accomplished as Dan Ausman to be its president and CEO,” Lee said. “Many of the significant strategic challenges Methodist Hospital will face in the next several years are areas where Dan has had experience. His leadership values align closely with those of Methodist Hospital and his advanced business acumen will help the hospital continue to thrive in the future.” Ausman was previously with Abrazo Health Care in Phoenix, Ariz., where he was president from 2006 un-

til 2011. The second largest health care system in Arizona, Abrazo has net revenues of $1.5 billion, with 5,000 employees, 3,000 affiliated physicians, six acute-care hospitals totaling 1,060 beds and two health plans. “I am excited to be joining Methodist Hospital as its new president and CEO and look forward to building upon the great history and culture of this excellent organization,” Ausman said. According to a 2008 Phoenix Business Journal article, Ausman defines success as “patient safety and clinical outcomes.” He believes an effective business leader shows passion, honesty and vision. And he says his most effective communication skill is “the ability to articulate vision and inspire.” That certainly seems to have worked for him in his last position. In the last four fiscal years with Ausman at the helm, Abrazo negotiated strategic alliances with three large medical groups, improved employee, physician and patient satisfaction, and significantly reduced the nurse turnover rate. Under Ausman’s administration, Abrazo’s hospitals achieved satisfaction scores, as measured by Press Ganey, above 80 percent for inpatient, 90 percent for outpatient and 80 percent for emergency room. Before assuming the top post at Abrazo, Ausman served as vice president of operations and president of California operations for Vanguard Health System,

Abrazo’s parent company. In that role, Ausman managed three acute care hospitals, with 491 beds in Irvine, Calif. He served as president and CEO for Irvine Regional Hospital and Medical Center, a 176-bed facility owned by Tenet Healthcare. He also has held positions as CEO for Monterey Park Hospital in Monterey Park; executive vice president for Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles; and CEO for Women’s Medical Center in Seminole, Fla. Ausman received his bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Irvine, and master’s in public administration from the University of Southern California’s Health Services Administration graduate program. He has more than 30 years of healthcare administration experience focusing on strategic development, financial success, cultural awareness and change, and quality of care. In 1998 and again in 2002, Ausman was awarded the Tenet Circle of Excellence Award by Tenet Healthcare and was recognized for performing at high levels in the areas of quality, service and operations. He has served on the board of directors for the Phoenix chapter of the American Heart Association, along with the Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association. He also was an honorary board member for The Wellness Community. Ausman has two adult sons who live in San Diego. He and his wife, Carolyn, will relocate from Arizona to Southern California. About Methodist Hospital Founded in 1903, Methodist Hospital is a 460-bed, not-for-profit hospital serving Arcadia and surrounding communities. Services include comprehensive acute care such as medical, surgical, perinatal, pediatrics, oncology, intensive care (neonatal and adult) and complete cardiovascular services, including open-heart surgery.

Rescue Log

Sierra Madre Search and Rescue

During the past month Sierra Madre Search and Rescue (SMSR) responded to nine calls for assistance. Fallen Hiker, Chantry Flat: The Team was called to Chantry Flat to aid a hiker who had fallen in an off-trail location. SMSR members responded to the site with a backpack-sized medical kit and determined the patient had fallen from a cliff approximately 40 feet high, suffering extensive injuries. EMT-certified Team members treated and stabilized the patient, who was evacuated via litter wheelout to an ambulance at Chantry Flat. Overdue Hiker: Montrose Search and Rescue notified SMSR that it was searching for an overdue hiker who was believed to be heading toward Sierra Madre. The Team launched a comprehensive search of area trails, sending several crews into the field on foot and in vehicles. An SMSR crew located the subject in good condition and escorted them

to family members waiting at Chantry Flat. Heat Exhaustion, Big Santa Anita Canyon: SMSR responded to a report of a hiker in distress near Hoegee’s Camp in Big Santa Anita Canyon. The hiker was determined to be suffering from heat-related illness and was treated by paramedics from the Sierra Madre Fire Department, and EMT-certified Search and Rescue Team members. The patient was then evacuated to an ambulance waiting at Chantry Flat. Environmental exposure is a common cause of emergencies in the backcountry. In Southern California at this time of year, hikers, bikers, runners, and others who enjoy the local mountains are particularly at risk for heat-related illness. This can be as mild as heat cramps-painful muscle spasms--or as serious as heat stroke, which is a life-threatening emergency that requires immediate intervention. Tommy Ingulfsen, Chairman of SMSR’s Medical Committee, says: “The chance of developing a heat-related illness may be aggravated by pre-existing conditions such as heart disease, kidney disease and obesity, as well as the use of alcohol and drugs.” Infants and

the elderly are particularly at risk since their ability to regulate body temperature is reduced. Ingulfsen adds: “In hot weather it is a good idea to keep outdoor activity to a moderate level and stay in the shade as much as possible. Also make sure to stay well hydrated.” Ingulfsen advises that in addition to drinking water, sports drinks that contain sodium are good for replacing electrolytes. Some common symptoms of heat-related illness include headache, lightheadedness, cramps, dizziness and vomiting. “If you or a friend develop any of these signs,” says Ingulfsen, “cease activity, find a cool place to rest and consider calling for help.” The Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that has been serving the local community for 60 years. SMSR is funded entirely by donations and never charges for any of its services. The Team provides a range of public programs on wilderness safety in addition to its search and rescue activities. For more information, including how to arrange a wilderness safety demonstration for your school or community group, visit www.smsr.org or email pr@smsr.org.

Monrovia PD

Hot Prowl On July 22 at 1:20 a.m., a resident in the 800 block of East Lemon was sleeping in the living room when she heard her small dog growling at something outside. She went to investigate and saw a male subject wearing dark colored clothing crawling through her bedroom window. The suspect saw the resident and fled. Officers conducted an area search, but were unable to locate the suspect. The investigation is continuing. Receiving Stolen Mail / Parole Violation - Suspect Arrested On July 22 at 9:17 a.m., an officer was patrolling the 800 block of West Walnut due to recent complaints of drug activity.

A search of the duffle bag revealed stolen mail from several residences off Royal Oaks. The suspect was arrested for possession of stolen mail and a parole violation. Armed Robbery - Suspects Arrested On July 24 at 4:00 p.m., officers were dispatched to a motel in the 900 block of West Huntington. A male victim reported that a male occupant staying in a room at the motel had just robbed him of all his property at knife point. The victim went to the motel to trade items he found in the trash for marijuana. The suspect did not want what he was trading and decided to take everything he had, including his back-

pack and iPod. The suspect was identified and arrested without incident. The stolen property was located and returned to its owner. A female subject inside the room was also arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance, as well as another male subject who had rented the room. A stolen bicycle was found in the second male subject’s vehicle, so he was also charged with possession of stolen property. Wanted Robbery Suspect Arrested Arcadia Police Department recently circulated a special bulletin regarding a wanted robbery suspect from their city. On July 24 at 10:43 p.m., a Monrovia officer, who is familiar with the suspect

from prior contacts, drove by an area where the suspect was known to frequent. The officer saw the suspect walking near Fifth and Olive with another male subject. The suspect tried to conceal himself behind a bush, but was detained without incident. Arcadia officers arrived and took custody of the suspect. Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance / Possession of Burglary Tools Suspect Arrested On July 25 at 4:00 a.m., an officer saw a suspicious person in the area of Foothill and Canyon. The officer contacted the male subject and determined he was under the influence of a controlled substance. Upon further investigation, the officer found the suspect had a flashlight, screwdriver, and box cutter in his possession. The suspect did not have a reasonable explanation for having these tools or for being in Monrovia. The suspect was arrested for being under the

influence and possession of burglary tools. Driving Under the Influence / Hit and Run Traffic Collision - Suspect Arrested On July 25 at 2:34 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 2600 block of South Peck, where a vehicle collided into four parked cars. The suspect’s vehicle lost one of its wheels, but the suspect continued south on Peck into the City of El Monte on three wheels and an axle. A witness followed the driver and led officers to the suspect. He was detained and officers determined he had been driving while under the influ-

ence of alcohol. He was arrested and taken into custody. Battery On July 25 at 6:23 p.m., police received a report of a battery that just occurred in the area of California and Walnut. The reporting party stated a male subject had exited a truck and was seen hitting a female, then dragging her into the bushes. Officers checked the area, but were unable to locate anyone. The reporting party called again and stated he had been incorrect in the location, and that it was Canyon and Walnut. Officers returned and located a trail of blood from Walnut to Maple. After an extensive investigation, it was determined an altercation had occurred between a teenage boyfriend and girlfriend, and the female may have hit the male in the nose, causing him to bleed. Officers were unable to determine exactly what transpired, as the two juveniles were uncooperative and had no visible signs of injury. Battery Thefts On July 26, three curbside box battery thefts were reported. The suspect(s) pried open the box doors and stole several back-up power batteries that are used in case of power out-

ages. The thefts occurred in the 1300 block South Magnolia, the 500 block of Bradbury, and the 1000 block of Royal Oaks. No suspects have been located. Time Warner Cable reported that a few nights ago, the City of Pomona had approximately 60 of these boxes broken into in one night. The same thefts are also occurring in Arcadia and South Pasadena. Investigation continuing. Residential Burglary On July 26 at 10:00 p.m., a subject who was housesitting in the 100 block of North Madison arrived at the home and found the front door ajar. The point of entry into the home was a kitchen window; no forced entry was apparent. The house appeared to be thoroughly ransacked and the actual loss is unknown, since the owners are away. The loss will be determined when the owners return. Investigation continuing. Possible Drug Activity On July 27 at 12:11 a.m., a caller reported a male subject standing near a blue van in the 900 block of West Walnut that appeared to be smoking marijuana. The caller stated they did not think the person belonged in the area. When the officer arrived, the suspect fled. As he ran, he placed his hands in his sweatshirt. The officer called out commands for the suspect to remove his hands, but the suspect kept running and was able to get into a construction storage yard at the 210 Freeway and Fifth. Containment of the area was set up and the Foothill Air Support Team helicopter assisted in the search. The suspect was not found. He is believed to be associated with a local residence in the area. A methamphetamine pipe was found in the area.

Officers found marijuana and narcotics paraphernalia in his daypack, and learned from the dispatcher that he had three outstanding arrest warrants. The suspect became uncooperative and began to fight with officers, who repeatedly commanded him to stop resisting arrest. During the fight the suspect bit one of the officers on the hand, and dropped a balloon containing tar heroin. The officers were eventually able to restrain the suspect and take him into custody. The suspect was 25 years old, and from Altadena. He was booked on multiple charges at the Pasadena jail.
