During the early morning hours of Saturday, March 26, 2011, Sheriff’s Homicide detectives responded to the 200 block of Rosemead Boulevard, unincorporated area of Pasadena, to investigate the circumstances surrounding a deputy-involved shooting. Investigators learned that four suspects pulled their car into the drivethrough of a restaurant, behind the vehicle of an

off-duty Sheriff’s Deputy, who was waiting in the drive-through. Two suspects exited their vehicle and, for unknown reasons, accosted the deputy. The deputy also exited his vehicle and a deputy-involved shooting occurred. Two of the four suspects were struck by gunfire and transported to a local hospital, where they are being treated for their

Santa Anita Park will return to a four-day race week beginning this Thursday, March 31, and will operate on a Thursday through Sunday schedule for the remainder of its winter/spring meeting which concludes on April 17. “Our horse inventory here in Southern California is well below what it has been in recent years,” said Santa Anita President George Haines. “Accordingly, we believe it is in everyone’s best interest to return to a four-day week for the rest of the meet. We want to ensure that we’re offering our fans a quality product and at this time, this is the best way to meet that objective. “We’re very confident that by running four days a week, we can offer the horseman plenty of opportunities to run and offer our fans fuller fields which provide more betting opportunities.” Haines also noted that

Raise Your Hats Ladies And Gentlemen BY SUSAN MOTANDER

Los Angeles Times columnist Pat Morrison talks with guests at the Hats Off party for members of the Pasadena History Museum last Friday – Photo by Terry Miller

Rather than “Hats Off” to the Pasadena Museum of History, it was definitely a hats on event for the opening of its new exhibit, “Mad for Hats,,” a retrospective of millinery trends starting in the 1800s. At the reception, attendees were encouraged to don their favorite chapeau. And the favorites ranged from an afghan lamb’s wool cap to a fez, from military covers to cowboy hats for the gentlemen, and anything goes for the ladies. Who better than Pat Morrison, L.A. Times Columnist and PBS commentator, renown for her hedonistic headgear, to welcome museum goers to the new exhibit. Morrison gave some of her favorite reasons for wearing hats: they define your personal space and are guaranteed to ensure a seat on public transportation. She also pointed out that hats are like babies: everyone stops to coo and talk about them. Who could ask for a better ice breaker? Morrison noted that it is a misconception that some people can’t wear hats. She said, “There is a hat for every face.” The reception honored the museum’s exhibition of more than 100 hats and photographs from its extensive collection showing hats from the 1860s onward. Prior to that time, bonnets were considered de require as they hid a woman’s hair and retained her modesty. From the 1880s on, hats

began to take center stage in women’s fashion. The teens saw the beginnings of the turban movement which has remain throughout the decades, changing with the years, but remaining one of the few styles constantly vogue in one configuration or another. Politics also played a role in the millinery tastes of the day. In the early 20th century, suffragettes fighting for the right to vote were encouraged to wear hats as they were seen as womanly and virtuous to counteract press depiction of these women as loose haired and therefore slatternly. The preferred colors were green, white or purple, the colors of the WSPU. the Women’s Social Political Union. With the 1920s came the flappers and their trademark cloche hats, short skirts and bobbed hair. The depression and the 1930s saw smaller, more conservative hats: berets, skullcaps, and toques. There were some broader brimmed hats for summer (think Eleanor Roosevelt.) World War II brought about rationing of wool, silk and felt required for the war effort. Milliners created a sort of felt made from fur and skim milk. Imagine being caught in the rain in such a creation. Cellophane “straw” also gain popularity as a replacement for the real thing. While the 1950s were staunchly conservative (think Mamie Eisenhower’s flowered concoctions, not un-

like those still worn by the queen), hats could be of almost any style. They were, however, virtually required. No woman went to church, her ladies’ club or even a PTA meeting without a hat. The 1960’s gave us Jackie Kennedy and her pillbox hats and in contrast, Audrey Hepburn and her large brimmed, floppy hats. The decade also saw the decline of hats being required at all social functions. Since that time, hats have become more a statement of self, rather than a requirement and a prevailing style. Wear a hat not, and you make a statement about your Self. Which brings us back to Pat Morrison: She states firmly who she is with her hats. Perhaps the best story she recounted was about the occasion of a hat shopping excursion to Nordstrom’s. In the millinery department she encountered two young women trying on various hats. Finally, one girl with multiple tattoos and various and numerous lip, nose and ear piercing, removed a hat saying, “I just can’t wear a hat; everyone will look at me.” Ya think? The Pasadena Historical Museum is open Wednesday - Sunday, noon - 5:00 p.m. with docent tours of the museum Wednesday - Friday at 1:30 and on Saturday and Sunday at 1:30 and 3:00 p.m. Admission is $5.00 with an additional $4.00 donation for a docent lead tour.

nity for students to make an impact in the community as well as become knowledgeable about cancer. The students feel good about themselves knowing they are doing something to help others,” said ACS Mini-Relay Coordinator, Jonie Tsuji, a Camino Grove parent, who has a strong personal interest in being the impetus behind the event, as a two-year survivor of breast cancer. The ACS “Mini-Relay” will be a fun-filled and education-packed event, offering “child friendly” activities that revolve around cancer awareness and prevention. All money raised

by students will be added to donations collected at the community-wide Arcadia ACS Relay for Life, to be held at Santa Anita Race Track on June 25 – 26, 2011. For more information on the ACS Mini-Relay event, check out our website at http://arcadiaminirelay.org.

BY DOROTHY DENNE The other day I ran across a column that I wrote back is 1995. Things improved a bit after I wrote it but now, in 2011, things seem to have gone full circle and all are back to where they were when I wrote it. Thus, a reprint: This morning as my body was grunting and groaning through my exercises, my mind was working too. I thought of friends who are out of work because businesses and governments everywhere are tightening their budgets. They are downsizing. I thought of the misery that the act of downsizing brings. My body interrupted my thoughts. I realized a couple of my exercises were a little harder to do. I’ve gained some weight. O Lordie, I need to tighten my diet. I need to downsize. What a terrible trauma for my little fat cells. They are probably all scampering around worrying. Who is going to get it? Which ones will the downsizing affect? They have lived in a land of plenty for a long time. I haven’t been on

a real reducing diet for years. Some of them, born after the end of that famine, have never been empty. Those little buggers have gotten very content. Lately, some have become overstuffed. Many have even produced offspring. Some are quite stable and have remained in the same area for their entire lives. Others have gotten mobile. They have migrated, mostly from my fingers and ear lobes, to the wide open spaces of my middle. Now the middle is becoming overcrowded. It has grown to the limits of the present clothing. The elastic has stretched to the max and the fabric is literally bursting at the seams. It is definitely time to downsize. I can cut back. I can empty out some of the fat cells. I can empty them but I can’t make them go away. When I stop feeding them they will hold on to their present contents as long as they can. They will become very efficient and learn how to survive on less and less. Every little morsel that enters into my body will be seized by

the hungry cells. Though many will lose most of their contents, they will survive despite their nearly empty state. All those little under-employed cells will be watching for every opportunity. I will have to work harder and harder to remain downsized and in my new clothes. Eventually I’ll decide I have a little room to grow. A little added intake now and then will provide manna for my starving cells. They will fill again and in their happiness they will reproduce. My body will expand once more. The new elastic, too, will stretch to the max and the seams will stress. Downsizing is such a misery causing process. As long as I will ultimately expand again anyway, I think I’ll just skip the downsizing and opt for continual growth. I’ll buy new, larger size clothes. That will help the economy which will help the unemployed. My friends will be happy. My fat cells will be happy. I will be happy. I just won’t bend over!

- Photos by Terry Miller Count Smokula and Marilyn Monroe are two characters who traditionally try out for Doo Dah Queen – We used this photo simply because we like it and couldn’t get a photo of Ron Stivers by press time.

During Doo Dah’s very special day, it seems only logical that a purveyor of fine vinyl (not what you’re thinking)… that Poo Bah Records Owner Ron Stivers be selected as Grand Marshal. Music has always been a marvelous part of Doo Dah history, and no doubt you’ll find an original vinly recording of Snotty Scotty somewhere in Stivers’ stash on Colorado. The Pasadena Doo Dah Parade named Ron Stivers as Grand Marshal for this year’s upcoming event in east Pasadena on April 30. Stiver has been owner of Poo Bah Records since 2003. One of a few surviving independent record stores and longtime Pasadena favorite, Poo Bah’s is also celebrating its 40th anniversary. Poo Bah’s was established in what was once called Old Town, Pasadena in 1973. Owning the record store was a dream fulfilled for Stivers, who once worked at Canterbury Records, another veteran indie retailer. Stivers has always

The Doozies

loved music and even taught himself how to repair musical instruments. He worked at both Canterbury and Poo Bah Records (and the same time) before he purchased the store. Tom Coston, president of Light Bringer Project, Doo Dah’s producers, sees Stivers as an ideal choice to lead this year’s parade. “Ron has kept

the indie record store tradition alive which is no easy task,” he says, adding that Stivers “also reinvigorated the store with the Poo Bah Record label and new music choices while keeping its historical identity intact.” The Doo Dah Parade, itself, has followed a similar course in relocating to East Pasadena last year. Stivers, himself, sees the Lamanda Park neighborhood as a perfect landing spot for other independent sole proprietorships, like a vintage clothing outlet or used book seller. It may also be ironic that Stivers serve as 2011 Grand Marshal of Doo Dah in that his grandfather, Jim Stivers, was once a Tournament of Roses leader in the 1980’s. Upon being told he was the Parade’s choice, Ron said his grandfather will probably be getting a kick out of it

from above. “I love Doo Dah being in East Pasadena,” he said, “and I’m really proud to be part of this year!” Known as the twisted sister of the conventional Rose Parade, the Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade began as a grassroots event in 1978 to gain national attention for its eccentric and, often, irreverent satire. While the alternative event enjoyed popular acclaim in the Old Pasadena retail and entertainment district over the years, organizers were also attracted to the low profile, small town setting of the Lamanda Park district. Last year, dozens of inventive, if zany, art cars and floats accompanied a legion of frolickers past the mom-n-pop shops along East Pasadena’s shady tree-lined streets. Many long-time parade goers felt it was reminiscent of Doo Dah’s early years.

The “Pope” was a popular attraction at a Doo Dah parade of years gone by.

Best-selling Monrovia Resident Comic Book Writer Creates Charlie Sheen Comic BY MICHELLE R. BROWN

Comic Book Guy - Marc Shapiro has a new comic out about the trials and tribulations of Charlie Sheen Courtesy Photo

Best-selling author and comic book writer Marc Shapiro, who is also a Monrovia resident of six years, has created a new comic book entitled, “Infamous: Charlie Sheen”. The book, published by Bluewater Comics, was created as fast as possible due to the Charlie Sheen media blitz; “I ended up writing the entire comic book script in six days” said Shapiro.

Though Shapiro has written comics and celebrity biographies before, the nature of this comic was different than his previous work. In an e-mail, Shapiro said, “The Charlie Sheen saga was literally unfolding as I was writing it so this was more like a hard journalism story …” His past works include the New York Times Bestseller “J.K. Rowling: The

Wizard Behind Harry Potter,” the Los Angeles Times Bestseller “Total Titanic,” and National Canadian Bestseller “Justin Bieber: The Fever!” Shapiro has written 31 celebrity and entertainment books for major publishers. Comic books will go on sale April 6, and will Beacon Media • RAIN/Pantages Theatre cost $3.99. They can be 5.040” x 6.250” • BW preordered from Amazon Pub Date: 4.9.2011 at www.amazon.com.

marking the end of Pasadena’s Level 4 water shortage emergency. The watering ban in Pasadena Water and Power’s service territory has since been lifted. The city’s ongoing Level 1 water shortage procedures will resume Tuesday, April 5. Watering will be permitted up to three days per week – Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturday only – before 9 a.m. or after 6 p.m. “Pasadena Water and Power customers once again proved they are outstanding water savers,” said PWP General Manager Phyllis Currie. “We are sincerely thankful to our residents, businesses, institutions, city departments and all others for all their efforts in helping us con-

PWP’s service territory was 38.4 percent less than the historical average demand in March over the past five years. The supply/demand gap during the shutdown was also filled in part by five days of rain, which reduced demand for landscape watering; and a limited, unanticipated supply pumped in from a new treatment plant in Northwest Pasadena that came online during the final days of the shortage. MWD, which supplies about 60 percent of Pasadena’s water, stopped all water deliveries to Pasadena through its Upper Feeder Pipeline from March 18 until 10:30 p.m. on March 28 due to seismic retrofit activities at its F.E.

Arcadia Muslim Woman Hopes to Dispel Misconceptions about Muslims

For generations Huntington Hospital has provided superior healthcare to the Pasadena community and beyond. Our indispensable team of physicians and surgeons — many affiliated with major academic institutions — works tirelessly, along with our outstanding nurses, to provide quality care with excellent outcomes. When it comes to healthcare, experience counts. Trust your health to the Huntington Hospital experience.

Perhaps one of the biggest fears mankind has is the fear of the unknown or that which he doesn’t understand. In a complex society many religions shape the communities in which we live and never before has there been so little tolerance in understanding each other’s differences. Particularly, under-

standing of the Muslim faith. Misconceptions proliferate (particularly in a post September 11 world) and subsequent ly meaningful communication and dialogue is often thwarted. Esma Ali, who is about to start a class on Muslim religion in Pasadena, migrated to the U.S. from India, when she was eight years old.

Though not a scholar, Ali is a practicing Muslim who strives to live her life with direction from the Quran and Hadith (Words of Prophet Muhammed). Muslim scholars have reviewed and approved the curriculum that she created for this course. What may set this course apart from others is that Ali has a terrific, albiet unique sense of humor and will likely incorporate that levity in her class which hopes to allay fears of the unknown and generate more understanding. At Neighborhood Church, Ross Chapel, 301 N. Orange Grove Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91103 at 7 – 8:30 PM This is an opportunity to learn the true concepts of Islam, in a fun environment and also have dinner and dessert. The cost for 5 sessions is only $40 http://www.uuneighborhood.org/re/LLL%20 Adult%20Registration%20 form.pdf Call Rev. Hannah Petrie, 626-449-3470 ext. 14

A Message from Mayor Mary Ann Lutz Dear Neighbors: The privilege of being elected to serve our community makes me grateful, humbled, and excited about the future. It is election time in Monrovia and I am proud to say that I am running unopposed to continue to serve you as your Mayor. Yes, I can say I’m excited about the future despite economic concerns, the threat of the state of California grabbing our resources and the uncertain direction of redevelopment due to the state’s greed. I can say I am grateful because you have expressed your assurance in my leadership and that gives me the confidence to make important decisions in your behalf and the knowledge to know I can count on you to keep an eye on my work and our local government. And, I can say I’m humbled by your support simply because my role as Mayor of Monrovia is not just about me and what I can do. It’s about what we do together to help our city prosper and keep a level head during the tough times. It’s that unity that will allow us to join in celebration to recognize the good times. I am confident that we will ride out the economic storms; we will continue to build up our business community, lend support to our schools and maintain the small town values that make us near and dear to each other. My heartfelt thanks again for this opportunity to work with you, and for you. Thank you for your support and vote on April 12, 2011.

Candidates Pledge to Fight for Equality in Monrovia Continued from page 1

the 210 Freeway. Organized by NAACP member and community activist Gwendolyn Jones, the forum was held for the first time on the southern side of Monrovia, according to event moderator Ralph Walker. Candidates included incumbents Tom Adams and Becky Shevlin, and newcomers Chris Zeigler and Jason Cosylion. All candidates stressed the importance for a more united Monrovia, and though they offered different solutions and ways to approach the issue of a divided city, it was clear that no matter which candidates are elected, residents will see a focus on uniting the City and improving community equality. “I kind of hate this south Monrovia thing” said Zeigler, on the way that people were using ‘north’ and ‘south’ to describe the different neighborhoods. “You can build a team, or fight each other.” Another hot topic was the construction of a Gold Line station in Monrovia, and whether the station or the rail maintenance yard would bring jobs to the community. Though no candidate knew quite how few or how many jobs would be created, all saw the need for fair and equitable public transport that would bring business to the City and provide a way for Monrovians without cars to get around to local businesses, jobs, and

community centers. “Listen to the needs and requirements of neighbors” said Adams, “things that they think they are shorted on, that’s how you make things equal.” The question of ridership was an issue, and the fact that many Monrovians do not use the limited transportation options that are currently available, such as dial-a-ride and the free trolley which will be phased out due to low ridership. Cosylion attributed this to poor marketing and advertisement. He saw the need to communicate with citizens, to say, “This is what we have, this is what is available to you.” Jones also saw the

need for community members to stay up to date on community affairs. “An informed community is really a happier community.” said Jones in a phone interview. To encourage southern Monrovians to attend the candidate forum, Jones and her grandchildren spent three weeks going door to door talking to south Monrovia residents about the importance of becoming active community members. “Be engaged, it does make a difference” encouraged incumbent Shevlin. An easy way for anyone to become involved is to increase voter turnout, which historically has been very low in south Monrovia.

The proposed maintenance yard for the Gold Line lies west of Myrtle at Duarte

According to Jones, more south Monrovia residents attended the forum this year than ever before; a step in the direction of a more equal community. Another big issue affecting all progress was the upcoming budget season. Residents expressed concern at the $7,000 spent on the city logo design proposition, government pensions, and setting aside the money for things like the Gold Line and a new park. Candidates stressed the importance of maintaining City infrastructure in the budget, and how residents can help alleviate these costs through volunteer work in their community. The forum, which was aired live on KGEM, was sponsored by Anna H. Jones Women’s Club, B.L. Jones Income Tax Service, Gwendolyn Jones, League of Women Voters, Lopez Landscaping, Monrovia Latino Heritage Society, The NAACP, Pasadena Star News, and W.K. Alston Plastering Co.

The Sierra Madre Police Warn Residents of Burglary Ruse On Friday, March 25, 2011 at approximately 10:30 AM, a man in the 300 block of Mariposa went to the front door of a senior female resident and identified himself as a local water company employee. The man told the resident that he needed to check her plumbing for the quality of water being supplied to her home. After the resident allowed the man inside her home, the man distracted the resident and

may have taken property from the resident’s home. The suspect tried to get the victim to pay him for the work he claimed to have done. At this point, there is no reported loss. Officers verified that no local water company employee was working in that capacity in the area. In July 2010, a similar incident occurred in this same general area and there was a substantial loss of cash and property.

The suspect in the recent case was described as a clean shaven man of Hispanic descent, 30-35 years old, and wearing a light colored tee shirt. Anyone with information regarding this incident or other incidents with similar circumstances, please call the Sierra Madre Police Department at (626) 355-1414. SMPD Case #110756.

Texting and Driving is not Cheap…. First offense is $159. Local police agencies are cracking down on texting and cell phone use while driving Continued from page 1 as likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves. Younger, inexperienced drivers under 20 years old have the highest proportion of distraction-related fatal crashes. In addition, studies show that texting while driving can delay a driver’s reaction time just as severely as having a blood alcohol content of a legally drunk driver. “We recognize that convincing drivers to refrain from using cell phones or texting while driving isn’t easy,” said Office of Traffic Safety Director Christopher J. Murphy. “It’s very difficult to resist the urge to check an incoming text or answer a cell phone call. That’s why we are stepping up enforcement and public awareness efforts. Convincing California drivers’ to wear seat belts 20 years

ago wasn’t easy either, but in 2010 more than 96 percent buckled up and thousands of lives were saved.” Studies show that there is no difference in the risks between hands-free and hand-held cell phone conversations, both of which can result in “inattention blindness” which occurs when the brain isn’t seeing what is clearly visible because the drivers focus is on the phone conversation and not on the road. There are simple measures drivers can take to minimize distractions in the vehicle: Turn your phone off or put it out of reach before starting the car. Alert callers that you are unable to take calls when driving by changing your voicemail message. Make it a point not to call or text anyone who may be driving, such as

during the commute to and from work or school, especially parents calling teen drivers. If you do need to make an important call or respond to a text message, pull over to a safe place to do so. If going cold turkey is too much of a stretch and you just can’t turn your phone off, consider using one of the available mobile phone apps that holds calls and incoming texts. “We just want drivers to use some common sense when they’re behind the wheel and focus on driving,” said Murphy. “Think about the vast majority of calls and texts you send or receive every day. Were any really worth a $159 ticket – or worse, a crash, injury or death? It’s just not worth it.”
