House Fire Leads to Homicide Arrest Suspect Later Released On Friday, September 30, at approximately 5:56 a.m. Pasadena Police and Fire personnel responded to an apartment fire at 59 South Meredith Avenue. The fire was contained to a single unit and; subsequently, a deceased female adult, later identified as Maria Donnely, a 28 year old Pasadena resident, was discovered inside an apartment. Pasadena arson investigators and police detectives conducted a preliminary investigation to determine the cause of the fire as well as the victim’s death. After the completion of an autopsy the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office has classified Ms. Donnely’s death as a homicide. On October 1, Pasadena police detectives developed a person of interest. Detectives determined the location of the individual and as a result, Corey Green, 28, was arrested for the homicide at his residence in Los Angeles. He was released on Monday. This investigation remains ongoing as detectives continue to analyze and collect evidence related Ms. Donnely’s death.

n Tuesday afternoon Anthony Portantino sent out an email alerting the media that Speaker Perez said the 44th District furloughs are no longer looming for the staff of his offices in Pasadena and Sacramento as had been threatened. “This afternoon I received a letter from Speaker Perez indicating that the staff of the 44th Assembly District would no longer face unprecedented furloughs. Though I am thrilled for my staff and district, I am disappointed that the Speaker is holding on to the delusion that this was anything but retaliation for my independent budget vote. It never made any sense to single out my staff and the halfmillion residents of the 44th A.D. because I voted my conscience. As always, I remain committed to fighting for the issues that I care

Never Again, Not With Them Dorothy's Place

By Dorothy Denne I went to lunch the other day with some women I haven't known very long. I had never gone to lunch with any of them before. I don't think I ever will again. We went to a pricey restaurant. The atmosphere was delightful. We sat at a round table which was perfect for conversation. The menues arrived with a rather over-friendly, but at least non-gum chewing, waiter. The menu choices were limited but elegant. Unlike my usual behavior, I chose

the most expensive item because it sounded positively, deliciously wicked. The early chatter was fine, the usual light stuff about one's new dress, another's hair-do, the furnishings in the restaurant, the view and so on. That was fine with me. I joined in, figuring the more serious stuff would come later as we warmed. The food arrived and my dish looked like it would be everything I was anticipating. I tasted it. It was ambrosial, truly worthy for the Gods, divine, delicious, dewonderful. My taste-buds thought they had died and gone to Heaven. I began to luxuriate in my decadence. Then, remember that conversation I figured would come when we warmed? Well folks, those other ladies warmed. They turned to what would become the topic of the day:

DIET! I was sliding my bread knife into a beautiful roseshaped ball of butter and licking the French cream sauce from my lips. I didn't want to hear beaucoup dissertations on cholesterol. I knew my post-lunch activity was going to be a nap. I didn't need to hear that five extra pounds means fifty pounds of pressure on your feet when walking. I didn't want to hear how many miles one has to walk to burn just twenty calories. I didn't need to hear statistics on chemical pollution of meat and fish. I know the U.S. government has never found mercury in a chocolate layer cake. I didn't want to hear the women who said they couldn't eat so much food. My mother taught me it's very impolite to leave food on your plate.

I'm not incapable of discussing diet and nutrition. I've been on every diet you can name. I've eaten the bellybuttons from navel oranges, doughnut holes, plum pits and the eyes of organic potatoes. They were all cholesterol free. As surely as I live and breathe smog, I can count calories too. I know there are eight in the glue on a postage stamp and twelve in a dab of toothpaste. I'm capable, I'm capable. Sometimes I'm willing. Not when I'm spending three weeks' grocery money and eating thousands of scrumptious, luscious, flavorous calories. Next time I'll choose my companions more carefully. We'll talk about something appropriate. Like, where we can find some other good restaurants.

John Shear Honored Continued from page 1 Hospital were amazed at how well the now 91 year old recovered from such life threatening injuries. When asked by Director of Publicity Mike Willman Saturday at Santa Anita what his secret was…Shear quipped that it was good clean living ” I don’t drink and I don’t smoke and I

exercise every day.” Willman joked back at Shear and said “ well, we won’t hold that against you.” Shear was accompanied by his wife and son and friends of the family as they entered the winners circle after the third race on the second day of the Autumn Santa Anita meet.

Flower Drum Song Captures Heart and Spirit of San Gabriel San Gabriel Valley Music Theatre stages some of the most refreshing and creatively challenging live shows in the San Gabriel Valley ; from earlier productions such as Miss Saigon and a tribute to the great Crooners of the 50’s and most recently last weekend’s production of, Flower Drum Song.

Continued from page 1 massive Foothill Extension Gold Line project local media was told Monday during a brief tour of some of the work being done. Habib Balian, CEO of the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority described the project as “huge endeavor” The 584-foot Gold Line bridge will be taking shape by December The new bridge will replace old railroad bridge across the freeway, which was built about 1969 and torn down in 1997, said Gary Baker, director of construction for Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority.

The bridge's design has caused considerably contoversy in Arcadia and surrounding cities citing that the design is not representative of the origins of the area. More closures are scheduled for the eastbound freeway lanes, especiall between midnight and 5 AM. The 11.5 mile eastward extension through Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale and Azusa is slated for completeion in 2015. Recent lawsuits filed by a Monrovia landowner against the City of Monrovia and published in this newspaper group’s last Thursday edition. The entire bridge is slated

be finished in summer of 2012. The Foothill Extension will continue the Metro Gold Line light rail line from its current terminus in East Pasadena through the cities of Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale, Azusa, Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair. Completion of the Foothill Extension from Pasadena to Montclair is estimated to cost $1.2 billion (not including the airport extention. The majority of the funding is anticipated to come from LA County's Measure R sales taxes.

Women Celebrate 100 Years of Voting in California, October 10 at PCC Who’s standing watch over democracy and women’s right – and responsibility – to vote? For the 100th anniversary of women winning the right in California, the answer is the League of Women Voters Pasadena Area and seven other women’s organizations: the local units of the American Association of University Women, Delta Kappa Gamma – Omicron chapter, Links, National Women’s Political Caucus, YWCA, and Zonta as well as 50/50 Leadership. Pasadena City College joins them in sponsoring a centennial celebration Oct. 10. While voting is a serious matter, they are winking at “herstory” with a tickle-the-ribs one-woman show by Amy Simon, ”She’s

History: The most dangerous women in America – then and now.” It will be held Oct. 10, 7 p.m., at Creveling Lounge on the PCC campus, 1570 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena. A reception with the artist will follow at 8:15, and, of course, there will be registration of voters. Tickets for the general public are $7. PCC students are free with school ID. Reservations are advised because seating is limited. Simon keeps everyone laughing with her wry spin on ordinary and extraordinary women throughout history with her wacky impersonations. She engages, educates and entertains as she honors and celebrates American women, hoping to inspire heroines of today

and

tomorrow. Her play, “Cheerios in My Underwear (and Other True Tales of Motherhood),” holds the record as the longest-running solo show in Los Angeles. As a writer and entertainer, she is a frequent guest on local and national radio. For reservations, please call the League office, 626798-0965 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on weekdays. Creveling Lounge is in Building CC near the southeast corner of Colorado and Hill Avenue on the PCC campus. Parking for $2 is available in student parking lots off Hill and Holliston avenues.

“Machine Gun Preacher” Best Underrated Film Of 2011 Imagine, if you will, being forced to choose between killing your mother, or do nothing and watch her and your younger sibling be murdered in front of you. This has been the choice forced upon not one but many children in Sudan, North Africa; and it is the opening scene to “Machine Gun Preacher,” starring Gerard Butler in a career-defining performance, and directed by Marc Forster, who has lead both Halle Berry and Johnny Depp to Oscarnominated performances in “Monster’s Ball” and “Finding Neverland,” respectively. The film is based on Sam Childers’ own 2009 autobiography, which is captured with vivid and relentless enthusiasm by screenwriter Jason Keller, who previously had only one TV credit to his name, according to I.M.D.B. Childers’ life is one that naturally lends itself to the big screen; in the

early-90s, he was a violent, heroin-addicted criminal who rode bikes with the Hells Angels. By 2000, he was waging a Rambo-style campaign alongside The Sudanese People’s Liberation Army against the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), who have abducted more than 50,000 children, turning them into “soldiers” or using them as sex slaves, many of whom have escaped and either been rescued or killed. The film itself is a gut-wrenching depiction of both Childers’ personal life—his miraculous transformation from outlaw to man of God— and his heroic struggle to protect the children of the Sudan while bringing Hellfire to the LRA. Critics have largely panned the film, which is now only in limited release, many of them citing an inability to reconcile the film’s theme, which holds Childers up as a modern-day crusader, at once proclaiming the

name of Jesus while taking up some serious firepower against the infidels. But, this is, after all, a biography about a man whose zeal for Christ is matched only by his use of violence toward the LRA. The film is ultimately about extremes, yes, but Forster does well to avoid contemplating the irony of Childers’ position because it is obvious and, therefore, would have been unsatisfying on screen. What is satisfying about this story is Forster’s portrayal of a man whose life is forever marked by brutality and whose cup can never be emptied of it but only redirected toward something larger than himself—not so much by a religious transformation, but by the children of Sudan themselves—a brutality that otherwise expended would have killed the man instead of a very real enemy. Therein lies the irony.

Alice Zhang’s Parents Sue City of Arcadia, Bowden Du over Crosswalk Death on Duarte The parents of Alice Zhang , a AHS student killed in a crosswalk on Duarte in April have filed a lawsuit against the city of Arcadia and the driver Bowen Du. The lawsuit, was filed in August by Zhang’s parents and their attorney David B. Casselman, alleging that "the dangerous condition" of the crosswalk was a contributing factor in the teen’s death. Zhang's parents are asking for unspecified general and special damages. The claim filed in June against the city on behalf of the parents

initially asked for $5 million. In addition, the complaint also alleges that driver Bowen Du's negligence was "a substantial factor" in the teen's death. Du, 19, of Arcadia has pleaded not guilty to one count of felony vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.. Detective Mike Hale of the Arcadia PD maintains the car's windshield was excessively dirty and that -- combined with the setting sun – caused the accident. In the months following

Zhang’s death, a handful of Arcadia High School students asked the City Council to consider making changes to the crosswalk. Arcadia Mayor Gary Kovacic told the Arcadia Weekly on Thursday ““This accident has been a terrible tragedy for Alice’s parents, friends, and our community. All Arcadians continue to grieve for such a loss. We have not been able to review the lawsuit yet, but are not aware of any evidence that the City of Arcadia was negligent in its efforts to protect the public.”

Local Church Serving the San Gabriel and Pomona Valley Helps Single Moms By jennifer elrod Christ Church of the Valley (CCV) in San Dimas is impacting the local community, one outreach event at a time. During the week of September 12, they had 50 volunteers repairing five homes in the local community. One home required significant work because the resident is a recent partial amputee, so volunteers built a ramp that met ADA code requirement. The family received all of these services free of charge through the church’s House 2 Home Ministry. CCV was the title sponsor of San Dimas’ 5K the weekend of September 24th. Over 100 members from the church participated (ran or served) in the event. They served over 450 meals throughout the morning. CCV reached out to the community once again on Saturday, October 1, 2011. This past weekend they targeted Single Moms and Moms in need through the 3rd Annual, Bee A Blessing event. The event began at 9am and lasted until around 2pm. The church is located

at 1404 W. Covina Blvd, San Dimas. The major cross streets are Badillo and Valley Center. As over 500 women lined up around the church campus, the line began to quickly wrap around the side of the building. Many women were excited with anticipation as childcare would be provided and they had the opportunity to be pampered for the day. Moms had an option to get a haircut, hairstyle, facial, manicure, massage, new outfit, and a photograph taken. All services rendered were given by approximately 300 volunteers. One local salon even shut down for the day to provide free haircuts and hair stylings to one hundred moms in attendance. The church also had a resource section of community services and church programs to further assist attendees in the future. Those who learned about each of the services received a raffle ticket to win dozens of donated gift baskets. Gift baskets were filled with gift certificates to things for the kids to things for pampering

yourself. The afternoon focused on a lunch and listening to a woman of the church share her personal story to instill a sense of hope within all of the ladies in attendance. The inspirational message was translated into Spanish, so that everyone could understand her journey and story. All of this was FREE to anyone who attended on Saturday and the church will continue to host different outreach and community events each month. Christ Church of the Valley is 4,800 member church. The senior pastor Jeff Vines, a former missionary, emphasizes the importance of serving the local and global community. He has given Jaime Mendoza Pastor of Local Outreach the charge to provide relevant and needed services within the San Gabriel and Pomona Valley. If you would like additional information about Bee A Blessing or other CCV programs, email outreach@ ccvsocal.com or call them at 909.592.2282.

Century City’s X Bar ‘Serves Up LA’s Finest Music’ Alternate Wednesdays By jennifer elrod The slogan for Koffeehouse Music is “serving up LA’s finest music” and they undoubtedly deliver with each and every concert they host. This past Wednesday was no exception as three artists shared the stage beneath the iridescent city-lit sky amidst the fiery glow of upscale bonfire pits spotted around the outdoor patio of the Hyatt’s Century City Plaza Hotel’s X Bar recently. The evening marked the kick-off of The Koffeehouse Century City Music Series, which will take place every other Wednesday where they will showcase three up-and-coming artists and bands. The kick-off on Wednesday, September 28th featured artists from across the map, like most artists who come to Los Angeles to follow the big dreams of success. Koffeehouse makes these music visions a reality. Jasper Sawyer kicked of the evening with his R&B/ Soul music. Sawyer was born and raised in Knoxville, TN. Sawyer was looking to make his stamp on the music industry while drawing inspira-

tion and echoing from past legendary crooners Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. Hailing from the Ohio Valley, Katie O. packed up her car and headed west

and settled in Los Angeles. Arriving a short six months ago, Katie has already begun making her mark on the music industry. Her heartfelt lyrics about life and relationships make her music relatable, especially for any girl who has gone through a break-up. Katie works as a nurse during the day, but her incredible voice and dynam-

was a personal favorite, Jamestown Revival, who took the stage and rocked out. Jonathan and Zach make up this rock-n-roll duo of best friends from good’ol Texas. With southern charm and a dash of wit, these two captivate audiences and have begun a fan-base that is quickly gaining momentum. First partaking in solo

music projects, it was only a natural progression that these friends since fifteen and college roommates began writing music and performing together as Jamestown Revival. Coming off of a recent feature in Rolling Stone magazine, Jamestown Revival has received some serious buzz in an incredibly short amount of time. After residing in Los Angeles for less than a year, Jamestown Revival has already set-up a tour through Texas in October. With an electric guitar, a keyboard, and a self-produced EP (which hit #12 on the iTunes charts), anticipation is high to see what’s next from this Texas duo. Keep an eye out for these two as they are currently working on a fulllength album. Drop by October 12 and 26 at the X Bar in Century City for live music from new and emerging artists. Valet parking is $8 with validation. There is no cover charge and doors open at 5pm. The X Bar is located at 2025 Avenue of the Stars, Century City, CA.

Portantino's Persistent Pressure Persuades Perez Continued from page 1 about and I’m glad we can now focus on taking care of business.” Said Portantino. A day earlier, Portantino sent a letter to Perez to release details on a so called ‘Budget Secrets Task Force’ Assemblymember Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) today released the attached letter calling on Speaker Perez to provide details on the “Task Force” that will examine transparency in Assembly budgets: “In August, you announced the creation of a “Task Force” designed to discuss and recommend policy changes in the Assembly, addressing the lack of public access to infor-

mation regarding the $146 million dollars under your direct control.” “Thus far, there is no evidence that the Task Force has met or is planning on meeting. That is, unless the Task Force is meeting without publicly noticing the meetings.” Here is the Letter Assemblymember Portantino sent to Perez: Honorable John A. Perez Speaker of the Assembly P.O. Box 942849 Sacramento, CA 94249-0046 Dear Mr. Speaker, “The reality is that in a state like California, we need to have transparency in govern-

ment,” said Speaker John Perez (Swearing in speech, March 1, 2010). In August, you announced the creation of a “Task Force” designed to discuss and recommend policy changes in the Assembly, addressing the lack of public access to information regarding the $146 million dollars under your direct control. You appointed Assemblymember Skinner as the Chair of this Task Force. As background, Ms. Skinner is being sued by the Los Angeles Times and the Sacramento Bee for being unwilling to release accurate and comprehensive budget information. Thus far, there is no evidence that the Task Force has met or is planning on meeting. That is, unless the Task Force is meeting without publicly noticing the meetings. There are no record-

ed minutes, notes or agendas posted or available which detail any meetings. In addition, the names of the members appointed to this Task Force have not been publicly announced. Because there have been no agendized meetings, there has been no opportunity for the public to offer testimony or input to the Task Force. I respectfully request the following: 1. Immediate disclosure of the names of the members of this Task Force. 2. Immediate publication of the date; time and place of the next meeting of this Task Force. 3. Assurance that the public will be allowed to offer testimony on the importance of transparency and complete financial disclosure. There is, however, a much

easier solution to the current Assembly policy on budget secrecy. Simply agree to send HR 20 to the Assembly Floor for a vote of the complete Assembly. HR 20 seeks to make all budget information public and requires that changes in budgeting must occur in a public meeting. In addition, I join with Common Cause, members of the press and other good government groups in calling for the repeal of the Legislative Open Records Act (LORA). By simple adoption of AB 1129, the Assembly and Senate would be governed by the California Public Records Act. Your continued effort to shield comprehensive Assembly budgets from the residents of California is an insult to every man, woman and child in our great state. Californians want and deserve complete trans-

parency in our State Capitol. Please let go of the reins of your $146 million slush fund and embrace true democratic values. Your unwillingness to disclose accurate and comprehensive budget information is further eroding any good will the public has toward Sacramento. There is no doubt that the current effort to keep office budgets secret sends the message that there must be something to hide. I remain available to offer my voice to any and all discussions on how best to bring the State Legislature in line with every other government agency in California. I respectfully encourage you to embrace true and open government. Respectfully, Anthony J. Portantino Assemblymember, 44th District

Not Everyone is a Fan of Food Trucks Continued from page 1 lack of restrictions the trucks operate under that has restaurant owners most agitated. William Kimura of the Public Health Dept in Pasadena feels with the restaurateurs speaking up, and given the collective financial contributions the restaurants make to the city every year in taxes and fees, city officials will take notice. Pasadena restaurant owners say the city of Pasadena doesn’t subject food trucks to the expensive CUPs (conditional-use permits) that permanently

erected restaurants are required by law obtain in order to start serving food. They are, however, subject to health permits just like conventional, immobile restaurants. In the beginning of 2011 the Health Department rolled out the new grading ordinance for trucks. Most of the ‘Nouveau’ segment of the industry has been graded. Not all choose to display their ABCs. Many of those at Cameron’s Tuesday discussed possible remedies including barring food

trucks from parking on city streets and restricted to operating on private property (500 feet from the nearest restaurant) and operating only after 10 p.m. Trendy San Marino doesn’t allow food trucks to operate in city limits and Monrovia has tried to restrict their placement after complaints but Southern California Mobile Food Vendors Association sued the city of Monrovia earlier this year for attempting to draft laws to ban food trucks . Restaurant owners on Myrtle

were not amused. The city of South Pasadena is also at odds over what to do with the growing popularity of what was once called “the roach coach”, a moniker Food Truck operators obviously want wiped off the mouths of those who criticize their ‘gourmet’ trucks and industry in general. Some also voice objections over the graphics used to advertise their wares. Some sexy, some downright sil-

Nasa Invites Students To Name Moon-Bound Spacecraft NASA has a class assignment for U.S. students: help the agency give the twin spacecraft headed to orbit around the moon new names. The naming contest is open to students in kindergarten through 12th grade at schools in the United States. Entries must be submitted by teachers using an online entry form. Length of submissions can range from a short paragraph to a 500-word essay. The entry deadline is Nov. 11. NASA's solar-powered Gravity Recovery And Interior Laboratory (GRAIL)A and GRAIL-B spacecraft lifted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. on Sept. 10 to begin a threeand-a-half-month journey to the moon. GRAIL will create a gravity map of the moon using two spacecraft that orbit at very precise distances. The mission will

enable scientists to learn about the moon's internal structure and composition, and give scientists a better understanding of its origin. Accurate knowledge of the moon's gravity also could be used to help choose future landing sites. "A NASA mission to the moon is one of the reasons why I am a scientist today," said GRAIL Principal Investigator Maria Zuber from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. "My hope is that GRAIL motivates young people today towards careers in science, math and technology. Getting involved with naming our two GRAIL spacecraft could inspire their interest not only in space exploration but in the sciences, and that's a good thing." Zuber and former astronaut Sally Ride of Sally Ride Science in San Diego

Starting a NEW business?

will chair the final round of judging. Sally Ride Science is the lead for GRAIL's MoonKAM program, which enables students to task cameras aboard the two GRAIL spacecraft to take close-up views of the lunar surface. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., a division of the California Institute of Technology, manages the GRAIL mission. GRAIL is part of the Discovery Program managed at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. Lockheed Martin Space Systems in Denver built the spacecraft.

OCTOBER 6, 2011 - OCTOBER 12, 2011 9

Green Flag Alert Issued in Sierra Madre The City of Sierra Madre has issued a Green Flag Alert for mudslides and debris flows in the hillside communities. The National Weather Service is forecasting 100% chance of precipitation beginning on Wednesday (10/5/2011). A Green Flag Alert is issued when there is an 80% chance or more of precipitation. Affected residents should get ready for potential evacuation and keep close watch on weather forecasts. This includes residents of the Upper and Lower Canyon as well as any resident whose property abuts the hillsides burned by the Santa Anita Fire. As we are just entering the rain season, City Officials would like to remind residents of our mud and debris flow alert system. A series of three different colored flags will be flown at four different locations in the City (City Hall, Search and Rescue Station, Mountain Trail at Churchill Road, and Mary’s Market). When

possible, flags will be displayed indicating one of three stages of emergency. Be sure to check the website, Facebook/Twitter page, email alerts, SMTV3, AM 1630, or simply call City Hall or the Police Department to confirm the current stage of emergency and please understand the City may not always have the ability to change these flags the moment conditions or forecasts change. The City has identified a number of streets that will need to be clear of all vehicles during a Yellow Flag or Red Flag alert. The affected streets are: Mount Wilson Trail, Churchill Road, Skyland Drive, Fern Glen, Fern Drive, Idlehour Lane, Canyon Crest Drive, Orange Drive, Woodland Drive, Brookside Lane, Sturtevant Drive, Sunnyside Lane, and Yucca Trail. The Yellow and Red Flag Alerts will trigger vehicles being towed from these streets at the owners’ expense. Stage One: GREEN

FLAG - Activated under a prediction of 80% - 100% chance of precipitation. Affected residents should get “READY” for potential evacuation. This includes keeping a close watch on weather forecasts. Stage Two: YELLOW FLAG - Activated with an LA County Phase 1 mudflow forecast. This is described as small, isolated debris and mudflows possible at specific locations. Affected residents should get “SET” to leave their homes and may choose to voluntarily evacuate. Please note that all vehicles must be off the streets in potential mudflow areas during Yellow Flag alerts. Stage Three: RED FLAG - Activated with an LA County Phase 2 or 3 forecast. Phase 2 includes moderate debris and mudflows at more widespread locations. Phase 3 - the potential exists for significant debris and mudflows to be widespread. Affected residents should “GO”, meaning they should immediately evacuate, and vehicles

should not be parked on the streets. When evacuating, please plan to be as selfsufficient as possible with important paperwork, medications, and clothing for at least seven days. It is important anticipate a possible evacuation order, and make plans for your pets in advance.

Vargas believed he could bring back the glamour, thrills and heart-pounding excitement of the authentic old-time circus. He was adamant that a circus wasn’t a circus if it wasn’t under the big top and wanted to make sure that every generation would have the opportunity to experience its magic first hand. He was dedicated and determined to make the name Circus Vargas synonymous with family entertainment and continued to do so until his death in 1989. Vargas often traveled the world in search new and exciting acts. In the late 1980’s on a trip to South America he stumbled upon The “FLYING TABARES” of Argentina! When he saw brothers Nelson and Alberto perform their trapeze act to standing ovations, he wasted

no time in hiring them, bringing them to the United States to perform in his 20th anniversary edition of Circus Vargas. Throughout different times in their career, the Tabares also worked under the management of . Kaiser & Muscarello. When they heard the owners would retire and the big top would come down for good , they seized the opportunity to take over the circus that had jump-started their career, and had always held a special place in their hearts. In 2005, Nelson & Katya QuirogaTabares proudly became United States citizens, and founded their production company, Tabares Entertainment, Inc. They now proudly present CIRCUS VARGAS, America’s Favorite Big Top Circus!

Circus Vargas Hopes to Bring a Circus to Town Minus the Animals Circus Vargas, a onering “extravaganza with entertainment, lighting and music, all inside a 147-feetround tent” is to be proposed to city council next week. Circus Vargas plans on putting the Big Top in the southwest parking lot of Santa Anita Park with performances from Thursday, November 24, 2011 through Monday, December 5, 2011. This circus will have no animals according to Circus Vargas officials. There will be a public hearing regarding the matter November 1 at Arcadia Council Chambers. In 1969, Clifford E. Vargas fulfilled his childhood dream when he raised the canvas of what was to become “Americas favorite Big Top Circus! Having been a lifelong circus spectator and fan,.

Please note that Public Safety Officials do not take evacuation orders lightly and residents should heed these orders. Once mud begins to flow, Emergency Responders will NOT rescue those who failed to evacuate until the mud has stopped flowing and it is safe for responders to enter the mud flow areas.

The Monrovia Police Department is Taking Back Unwanted Prescription Drugs October 29 at The Monrovia Community Center

Funded by a Grant from the Department of Resource Recycling & Recovery (CalRecycle)

EXPERIENCE the difference. erence

On October 29 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Monrovia Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your medications for disposal to the Monrovia Community Center at 119 W. Palm Avenue, Monrovia CA 91016. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Last April, Americans turned in 376,593 pounds—188 tons—of prescription drugs at nearly 5,400 sites operated by the DEA and more than 3,000 state and local law enforcement partners. This initiative ad-

dresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards. Four days after the first Take-Back event in September 2010, Congress

passed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an “ultimate user” of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The Act also allows the Attorney General to authorize long term care facilities to dispose of their residents’ controlled substances in certain instances. DEA has begun drafting regulations to implement the Act, a process that can take as long as 24 months. Until new regulations are in place, local law enforcement agencies like Monrovia Police Department and the DEA will continue to hold prescription drug take-back events.

Many retirees are members of AARP, but there are also other organizations that offer services to retirees and work toward bettering their lives. At a luncheon meeting of the California Retired Teachers’ Association #71 (CalRTA), fellow retired teacher David Siegrist will speak to the group about “AARP and Beyond.” One example of services is Seniors on the Move, which offers transport as minimal as taxi service and as major as home relocation. Another is Dial-a-Ride which offers local transportation. An example of a pub-

lic agency that works in seniors’ behalf is the Los Angeles County Commission for Older Adults. This agency provides services to seniors regarding their needs, their well-being, and their rights. Siegrist will tell about this agency and others. He welcomes a question and answer period and has numerous handouts available for the group. The meeting takes place on Friday, October 14, at 11:30 a.m. at the Senior Center Building in Arcadia Park, 405 W. Santa Anita Avenue, Arcadia, next to the Lawn Bowling Greens.

Guests are welcome to come enjoy the CalRTA luncheon and hear David Siegrist’s presentation. The cost of the luncheon for members and guests is $10. The reservation deadline is Friday, October 7. For luncheon information, please call John Gera at (626) 286-0714. Membership in the California Retired Teachers’ Association is open to all retired educators, as well as to any others interested in joining this active group.

San Gabriel’s Liela Avila and Pasadena’s Plate 38 Create Something Great Traditional Jazz featuring a young, versatile and exceptionally talented singer gives music lovers a taste of things to come in East Pasadena By Terry Miller

L

ast Thursday evening I ventured to a relatively new music and food enterprise on Colorado in East Pasadena where a very young and talented Liela Avila and her equally talented ( while not as young) dad John Avila ( of Oingo Boingo fame) were playing with two other talented and fun people Paul Lines, who founded the Pasadena Jazz Institute, on his vintage maple drum kit and Woody Aplanalp on guitar. Entrepeneur, friend and talented music manager in his own right, Dr. Dave Peterson - we call him Dr. Dave the Rave - a “cheesy” sort of bloke from Wisconsin - insisted I visit Plate 38 last Thursday not only to meet the owner of hottest new music venue in East Pasadena but also hear Liela Avila, whom I have seen at other venues inLos Angeles… but this night was special. To say remarkable would without a doubt be an understatement. This night was emotionally intoxicating. Liela Avila’s voice hit an all time high for this and scores of others in the audience. “I was taken to a place that doesn’t happen often in one’s life time, but it happened tonight.” said Peterson of Avila’s performance Thursday last. “It was an experience that I can only explain by relay-

ing what occurred was I was playing tennis and duplicated when I was a runner. No matter how you throw the ball up the serve is an ace, no matter

ers can.” Polk told Beacon Media. After first hearing Avila’s voice, Polk knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt that he’d be playing her first CD until the laser burned a hole in the material. But even he agreed, Avila’s voice last Thursday really went to a new level of professionalism. Her ability to sing the classics at her “tender age” is uncanny said Polk. Asked about how often he plays here CD…. “well, let’s just say I’ll just have to buy very soon.” Polk quipped. With Avila singing classics like: Why don't you do right; I Love Paris; Summertime; Georgia; Naima; Smile and the ever popular Fever, one might imagine you were listening to Nora Jones with a twist of Michael Buble thrown in for good measure. Imagine Peggy Lee, with perhaps some Ella Fitzgerald and a few other classic women in Jazz and you’ll begin to get where she is coming from and where she’s heading. An old soul in a young, petite body will absolutely astound you as she does wherever she plays. Avila attended Los Angeles County High School for the Arts and continued her music studies at Citrus College in Glendora, where she was the featured singer with the Blue Note

WINNER

Continued from page 11 Orchestra, the school's big band. She also created her first album, "The Oneness of You," at Citrus College. Avila has already worked with Oingo Boingo, Quetzal and The Specials. She was also a backup vocalist for the popular Josh Groban when he appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno as well as The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Like her dad, Avila started music at a very tender age of around 5 years and added her voice for the children's choir background vocals for some of Oingo Boingo's recordings. By 11, she was playing piano and guitar as well as writing her own songs and music. Avila is currently working on her next CD - all original material, ranging from pop, rock, Latin and jazz, and perhaps some surprises.

When the band took a break I got a chance to sample some amazing food from Plate 38’s menu under the aucpices of chef/ owner Robert Humphreys who completed the Cordon Bleu course at the Culinary Insitiute (we can see why) a little while back. After working at a couple of other succesful restuarants, Humprys decided it was time to branch out on his own and combine his love of Jazz and cuisine and take it to a new level – hence the birth of Plate 38. I first tried the Fritto Misto ( calamari, artichoke, shimp and other goodies) as an appetizer and then was presented with an outstanding whitefish, prepared simply beyond my wildest dreams. An astounding taste sensation which quite literally melted in my mouth. While gaining a reputation for some of the best

burgers in Los Angels, Plate 38 offers at least 38 Gourmet meals at decidedly ungourmet prices. We’ll give our readers a run down of the restaurant side in a later issue. However, our story on Liela Avila at Plate 38 would not have been complete withoput mentioning the host and his amazing food. By the way, their Spaten is also excellent! Very good beers and wines will compliment any dinner or just to listen to Liela. Liela will be playing this Friday at Plate 38 in October. Liela is an absolute “ must hear ” – we kid you not! Plate 38 is a place for magic not only in the kitchen but also on stage. Call for upcoming schedule or check their website. Plate 38 361 E. Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena, (626) 793-7100

Not Everyone Fanatical about Trendy Food Trucks in Pasadena Continued from page ly. Restaurant owners point out that signage restrictions also limit their ability to advertise. One Food Truck offers a graphic of two young women holding their products. One busty woman is holding two strategically placed burgers while the other is a profile of a shapely young woman both of whom are the logo of ‘ Baby’s’ Another is for “ Barbie’s Q” where a woman is depicted dripping The city apparently tried to intervene, but failed in an attempt to move the trucks from business districts. North San Gabriel Avenue is evidently a hot spot for the trendy trucks like the Grilled Cheese truck. This has been one of the problem areas according to some in the restaurant business. One restaurateur who declined to be named sees hundreds of customers in lines

that wrap around blocks

on Friday nights at the Food Fair. He’s worried about the trend. “We don’t want to run food trucks out of the city entirely. We all agree they have a service to offer that people want. What we want is a level playing field for everybody with equal responsibilities and equal requirements. That will eliminate the renegade trucks that cause most of the problems, and keep things fair for those of us who are here permanently.” Robin Salzar, owner of Robins Ribs in Pasadena said he just wants everything to be “fair and equitable”. He added “what I find is a double standard. We restaurant owners in Pasadena have three inspections a year and one fire dept. inspection (at a cost of $195) with another possible cost for a failing grade. By law we have to post our inspection ratings

and not all Food Trucks appear to be doing this.” Salzar said also he was concerned a great deal about safety of propane and the inspections these trucks may not be subjected to like their brick and mortar counterparts. Salzar also said that health inspectors literally wait and make sure he posts his health inspection notice prior to leaving. We attempted to contact Pasadena’s Health Department for additional information and statutes regarding the food trucks and their inspections, however our phone calls were not immediately returned as of deadline. The recent Santa Anita Food Truck Festival had a loyal following as is often the case but as Salzar points out, not everyone takes credit cards and cash is the prefered tender in the food truck business which obviously affects local sales tax.

POLICE BLOTTERS Arcadia PD

For the period of Sunday, September 25, through Saturday, October 1, the Police Department responded to 982 calls for service of which 129 required formal investigations. The following is a summary report of the major incidents handled by the Department during this period. Sunday, September 25: At about 2:11 a.m., a traffic stop was conducted on Santa Anita Avenue at Alta Street for speeding. The 31-year-old Hispanic male was found to be intoxicated and was placed under arrest for D.U.I. Officers responded to the 1100 block of Highland Oaks Drive regarding a vandalism report. The victim told officers that at approximately 4:27 a.m., he heard a loud crash and immediately looked out his window and saw a male, possibly White or Hispanic, 18-20 years old, wearing a dark colored sweatshirt, standing next to his vehicle. The male then walked over to a white, 2-door vehicle and entered the rear driver’s side passenger seat before the vehicle drove away. The victim went to inspect his vehicle and discovered both the rear window and rear driver’s side window had been broken. No property was reported missing. Monday, September 26: Several acts of vandalism that were similar in nature were reported to have occurred sometime over the weekend in the 900 block of Santa Anita Avenue, the 100 block of West Lemon Avenue, and the 100 block

of West Longden Avenue. Graffiti was found in spray paint along the west side walls of each location, however, the victims and locations are not related, and do not appear to be specific targets of these acts of vandalism. Between 1:00 p.m. and 1:10 p.m., a theft occurred in the 600 block of West Camino Real Avenue. Suspect(s) stole a lawnmower through an open gate in the backyard. Tuesday, September 27: Between September 24th at 4:30 p.m., and September 27th at 7:30 a.m., suspect(s) lit newspapers on fire near a bench, and burnt ashes were discovered outside of the Arcadia Historical Museum, 380 West Huntington Drive. At about 6:32 p.m., officers responded to the lobby of the Arcadia Police Department regarding a fraud report. The victim advised that on Saturday September 24th, she received a letter in the mail from an individual claiming to be an investment banker. The letter solicited personal information with an offer to split an alleged inheritance. The letter also contained a phone number that appeared to be from outside the United States and the victim believes it to be fraudulent. Wednesday, September 28: Between September 26th at 7:00 a.m., and September 28th at 2:00 p.m., a theft occurred in the 400 block of North Altura Road. Suspect(s) forced open the rear gate to an unoccupied home listed for sale and stole the swimming pool pump.

Officers conducted a pedestrian check at the intersection of Duarte Road and Mayflower Avenue at about 11:05 a.m. A records check of the 40-year-old Hispanic male revealed an outstanding misdemeanor warrant, for which he was placed under arrest. Thursday, September 29: At about 2:36 p.m., officers responded to Firestone, 1500 South Baldwin Avenue, regarding a vandalism. Sometime between September 28th at 5:00 p.m., and September 29th at 2:00 p.m., suspect(s) fired a pellet or BB gun at the location dama g ing sev-

eral windows. At approximately 7:00 a.m., officers responded to the 2300 block of South Fourth Avenue regarding a theft. The victim told officers that at about 6:45 a.m., he noticed the trunk and rear passenger side door to his vehicle open. Through surveillance video at the location, officers learned that an unknown male wearing a light colored long sleeve shirt and light colored pants walked up and entered the unlocked vehicle at about 3:48 a.m. and

stole cash. The vehicle was parked in the driveway of the residence. Friday, September 30: Two similar acts of vandalism were reported in the 200 block of East Santa Clara Street: Sometime between 12:30 p.m. and 3:45 p.m., suspect(s) scratched two separate vehicles parked at the location. The marks appeared to have been caused by a sharp object, and it is unknown if the victims were specifically targeted. A victim came to the station at

about 8:00 p.m. to report the theft of a package from the 100 block of Las Tunas Drive. The victim reported seeing a Hispanic male in a white T-shirt and dark pants, in his 30’s, pick up a box from her front porch and enter a green, medium size sedan, possibly a Toyota with a license plate similar to 4KZ800 CA, and drive away. A Hispanic female, approximately 30-years-old, was seen in the passenger side of the car. The crime occurred at about 3:15 p.m. Saturday, October 1: At about 11:43 p.m., officers responded to the area of Santa Anita Avenue, north of Arno Drive, regarding graffiti. Several words were found spray painted along the east

guardrail in red spray paint. Shortly before 1:00 p.m., loss prevention personnel from JC Penney at the Westfield Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, detained a male juvenile for theft. The suspect took merchandise into a fitting room, concealed it, and walked out of the store without making payment. Through investigation it was determined that the 17-year-old Hispanic male came into the store with the intent to steal, and he was placed under arrest for commercial burglary.

The victim reported that her vehicle was stolen from the street sometime overnight. The vehicle was locked, but does not have an alarm. There was no broken glass on the ground where it was parked. The vehicle is a white, four-door, 1994 Honda Civic. Death Report On September 28 at 6:25 a.m., police responded to a residence in Hidden Valley. The caller reported her 61-year-old sister in the bathtub not breathing. Monrovia Fire Department paramedics responded and pronounced the woman deceased. Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office was contacted and responded to the scene. Theft from Vehicle On September 28 at 12:10 p.m., an officer was dispatched to a residence in the 100 block of North Mayflower. The reporting party had parked his vehicle off the alley by his garage in the evening, but left it unlocked. He returned to his vehicle at about 11 a.m. the next day and found his prescription glasses and GPS missing from the center console. Investigation continuing. Detective Bureau Case Follow-up - Child Molestation; Suspect Sentenced The suspect was arrested on December 15, 2009, for child molestation. The suspect, a registered sex offender, allegedly had repeatedly molested his live-in stepdaughter over an eight-year period, beginning when she was only four years of age. The case was assigned to a detective for further investigation and the District Attorney’s review. During the course of the detective’s investigation, he was able to locate a previous victim of the suspect, an ex-girlfriend’s daughter. She, too, was the victim of repeated sexual molestation by the suspect, which began when she was

6 years old. This case occurred in West Covina in 1995, while the suspect lived with the victim’s mother. Three felony charges were filed against the suspect for the Monrovia case by the Pasadena Superior Court and a jury trial began on August 10. On August 16, the case went to the jury, and in a short 60y minutes, they returned with a verdict of guilty on all counts. Each of the three counts holds a 25-year-to-life sentence, due to his prior felony sexual assault conviction. On September 23, the suspect was sentenced to 155 years to life for molesting his stepdaughter. This case is a result of detailed investigative work by Monrovia Police Department detectives.

Based on the subjects’ description of their surroundings, SMSR team members were able to determine high-probability search areas. Search crews were dispatched on foot and found the subjects in one of these areas. The hikers were assessed and assisted back to their car at the Chantry Flat parking lot. Injured Swimmer, Chantry Flat: The Team received a report of an injured juvenile at a waterfall in the Chantry Flat area. SMSR team members, along with L.A.

Team members spent two days assisting in the search operation before the subject was found deceased. For 60 years, Sierra Madre Search and Rescue has answered calls for help in the local mountains and beyond. Funded entirely by private donations and staffed by volunteers, the Team has long been a fixture in the community.

a small, neatly-dressed Japanese woman in her late sixties came into the office. She introduced herself as Grace and gently explained that she was looking for work. She had been a secretary for many years and stated that she would be of use around the office. Grace was having a hard time making ends meet on her fixed income and had been looking for work for a while, but no one was willing to hire someone her age. Angie took Grace’s number in hopes that the boss would find a place for her, but he was not open to the idea. “I called her back and gave her some places she could try then hung up the phone and cried. How could we as a society not give someone like Grace an

opportunity to work? She needed to know that she was still a productive member of society as much as she needed the money. I still choke up when I think of Grace. That chance meeting with her truly left an impression in my heart and ignited my passion to work with seniors. Seniors Helping Seniors is my opportunity to employ productive men and women like Grace. “ Angie currently has eight part-time positions open. “We are seeking active seniors who have the heart of a volunteer but would not mind some supplemental income. Interested candidates can call 626-357-1234 on Thursdays from 10am to 5pm. Please ask for Sallie.
