away horse on March 12, has been announced as the first ever ‘Hometown Hero’ for the Sierra Madre July 4 Parade last week by the July 4 Committee.

On Tuesday evening, surrounded by friends and family members including his son Michael and wife Diane, John Shear was recognized for his heroic act last March.

Mayor John Buchanan stood by while councilwoman Mary Ann MacGillivray read a proclamation as Shear proudly listened to each “Whereas” as it was read.

Shops at Santa Anita No Longer an Option for Developer Rick Caruso Developer Rick Caruso owner and operater of The Grove, among other successful shopping ventures, has apparently withdrawn his proposal to build a $500 million outdoor mall at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia. Caruso Affiliates Public Relations Senior Vice President of Public Relations Jennifer Gordon told Beacon Media on Monday that “Unfortunately we will not be moving ahead with the project at this time.” Caruso Affiliated proposed in 2004 to build The Shops at Santa Anita, a 825,000-square-foot shopping mall. The plan was delayed by a legal challenge from rival developer Westfield, which owns a nearby mall; and advocacy group Arcadia First, who consistently maintained that traffic was already at a peak in Arcadia and adding Caruso’s project would be detrimental to the city.

A special meeting was held between the Arcadia City Council/Redevelopment Agency and Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich on Wednesday, May 25 to discuss county/city jurisdictional issues, especially regarding the LA Arboretum, and the effect of the Supreme Court’s decision to allow the release of 46,000 inmates from California state prisons. In the meeting, according to Arboretum CEO Richard Schulhof, it was decided that the county would delegate author-

ity for the decisions regarding large special events to the Arboretum Foundation Board. Antonovich, in a May 10 motion, called for the Board of Supervisors to direct County Counsel and the Director of Parks and Recreation to “review the operating agreement … and to bring to the Board any recommendations deemed necessary to revise the agreement to ensure that the roles of the entities is clear and that the Foundation acts within the

Dorothy's Place

BY DOROTHY DENNE I was chastised last week by my friend John. He said, “I’m getting a little perturbed with you. I want you to quit writing about getting old.” I said, “But many of my readers relate to that.” He said, “I do too, that’s why I’m perturbed.” One of the negatives of writing, as opposed to speaking or performing, you don’t get an immediate response from your audience. One of the positives about writing a column like Dorothy’s Place

is running into readers who recognize your name or picture and comment on the columns. One example is a woman who approached me in Pavilions the other day. I don’t know her name but she said, “Aren’t you Dorothy Denne? I want you to know I enjoy reading your column. It makes me feel good.” Another lady I do know from several social and service groups, gave me a hug and said, “I like your columns so much because they are so human.” I was especially touched when my pastor told me I had been an inspiration for him as he worked his way through several recent hard knocks. Now how good is that?! I consider my readers part of my family. I enjoy

‘talking’ to all of you each week. That’s what life is all about - being human and making people feel good. I started this column hoping to make John feel good by following his directive to not write about getting old. Then I received the following email. I’m ‘sawree’ John. I just can’t resist: OLD IS WHEN... Your sweetie says, “Let’s go upstairs and make love,” and you answer, “Pick one; I can’t do both.” OLD IS WHEN... Your friends compliment you on your new alligator shoes and you’re barefoot. OLD IS WHEN... A sexy babe or hunk catches your fancy and your pacemaker opens the garage door. OLD IS WHEN...

Going braless pulls all the wrinkles out of your face. OLD IS WHEN... You don’t care where your spouse goes just as long as you don’t have to go along. OLD IS WHEN... You are cautioned to slow down by the doctor instead of by the police. OLD IS WHEN... ‘Getting a little action’ means you don’t need to take any fiber today. OLD IS WHEN... ‘Getting lucky’ means you find your car in the parking lot. OLD IS WHEN... An ‘all nighter’ means not getting up to use the bathroom. AND OLD IS WHEN... You are not sure these are jokes.

To the Editor: Funny how politically incorrect news gets one-sided coverage – or no coverage at all – by the mainstream and alternative press. Did you know that the California Assembly approved a bill that would make undocumented students (read: illegal immigrants) eligible for privately funded scholarships? Or that the Assembly approved the measure on May 5 with a party-line vote of 51-21, including a yes-vote by Assemblyman

Anthony Portantino? Last November, Portantino told me at a La Canada City Council meeting that he supports the California Dream Act for undocumented students. “We need 15,000 doctors,” he said. “I don’t want to deny financial aid to an undocumented student with a 4.5 grade-point average.” Portantino denied that the Dream Act would displace citizens or legal residents. Never mind that California Community Colleges Chancellor Jack Scott told

the Los Angeles Times that 140,000 students did not enroll last year because they could not get into classes (“Just Call Them College Students In Waiting,” October 4, 2010). Who has the right to attend a taxpayer-supported college or university – an illegal immigrant with an impressive 4.5 GPA or a citizen with a modest 2.5 GPA.

Laid - Off Graphic Designer’s Mac Book Laptop Computer Stolen Cash Reward Offered As if getting laid off isn’t bad enough. To add insult to injury over the weekend, the newly unemployed woman’s car was broken into in a residential area of Monrovia and subsequently a Mac Laptop was lifted from the vehicle. The Monrovia Police Department told the victim, Lorraine Delgado, that she should make flyers and let Monrovia residents become aware and see if there were any witnesses. Sadly, due to cutbacks and the recession police officers patrolling Monrovia during the night

are very limited in numbers. And up until now, at least, no one has come forward with information about this crime. As a graphic designer this (computer) was the only means of work for Delgado. She has recently been laid off laid and resumes for potential employers and several pending projects were on that laptop. The lifelong Monrovia resident is most distraught over the incident and is hoping someone out there has an idea where the computer may be. The Macintosh 15 inch

This year’s June Faire at Sierra Madre’s British Home promises to be even bigger and better than ever. The annual event will be held Saturday, June 4th from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Admission is free and local residents are invited to enjoy the beautiful grounds of The British Home which serve as the perfect setting for the Faire. If you’ve never been to the British Home or met any of the residents, now is indeed the time for all good men, women and children to attend this particular party and find out what makes the British tick. The whole family is provided for with many booths put on by the Daughters of the British Empire, games, and refreshments.

Throughout the Faire there will be live displays of Scottish and Irish dancing as well as a performance by the Rising Phoenix Morris Dancers. Children can enjoy a sticky wall, bouncy castle, face painting and game booths. The British Consul-General, Dame Barbara Hay, will open the Faire at 10 a.m. following the parade of flags which will be accompanied by a Scottish piper. There will be a variety of booths selling books, garden plants, birdhouses, jewelry, collectibles, cards and lots more. Refreshment choices all emphasize the British influence on the Faire from English bangers, a Victorian style tea on the patio or a ploughman’s lunch to home-baked goods including sausage rolls,

Cornish pasties, cakes and scones. In September The British Home will celebrate 80 years of providing personalized care to its residents. It is a non-profit organization which, as a licensed Residential Care Facility for the Elderly, welcomes seniors who come from all nationalities, races and religions. If you feel you need an interpreter, I would strongly suggest bringing along a terrific book….”Divided by a Common Language or better yet, ask the Bobby who will be stationed at the entrance of the British Home on June 4.

S

t. Rita Catholic Community in Sierra Madre anticipates the ordination of Dr. John Hull, one of their parishioners. Hull’s ordination as a Roman Catholic Deacon will take place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 11, at Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral in downtown Los Angeles. Limited tickets are available through the St. Rita Parish office. Hull will become the third deacon ordained in the parish, since the reinstitution of the permanent Deaconate ordination

The Doozies

in the Roman Catholic Church in the 1960’s, after the sweeping changes of Vatican II. Hull and his wife, Marylee, will join Deacon Manuel and Griselda Valencia as the parish’s third Deacon couple. They will all minister to the spiritual needs of the 1135 families of this faith community, under the direction of the pastor, Monsignor Richard Krekelberg. Hull’s early mentor, the parish’s beloved first deacon, Ernie Nosari, passed away in 2005.

The Hulls, Sierra Madre residents since 1992, have four children, the youngest attending Alverno High School. John Hull has taken an unusual route to the Catholic faith and its deaconate. Formerly an ordained Christian minister in another denomination, as well an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Practical Theology at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, Hull felt called to reexamine his faith journey in recent years, and joined the Catholic Church in 1999.

By Tom Gammill

Fo o ite rr an ea n lth yM ed ou sH ea eli ci D

Dr. Hull reflects, “I grew up as a Christmas and Easter Christian, then faced the tumultuous college environment of Ohio State at the height of its unrest, where I drifted away from Christianity altogether. After college, seemingly chance circumstances in Boston introduced me to my wife Marylee, and simultaneously brought me back to Christianity in my own St. Paul-like conversion. I then felt called to serve, began study for a Masters in Divinity in 1976. The opportunity to enter the ordained, permanent Deaconate ministry is open to active, practicing Catholic men ages 31-60, married or single. Hull comments, “Very few deacons are paid by the church. Most hold full time ‘secular’ careers outside the church. It is our particular mission and ministry to bring the ‘outside world’ perspective to our pastor.” The ceremony will be followed by a reception in O’Malley Hall. All are welcome, and no reservations are required. The Hull family, representatives from Fuller, St. Rita and the local clergy will attend the ordination as well as the St. Rita events on June 12. St. Rita Church and O’Malley Hall are located at 318 N. Baldwin Avenue, at Grandview, in Sierra Madre. For more information, please contact the St. Rita Parish office at 626-355-1292.

World Premiere of “Sleepless in Seattle – The Musical” is Set to Complete at The Pasadena Playhouse Performing June 12 – July 15, 2012 The Pasadena Playhouse (Sheldon Epps, Artistic Director and Stephen Eich, Executive Director), in association with David Shor, announced today that the world premiere of SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE – THE MUSICAL is set to complete the previously announced 2011 – 2012 season. Performances begin June 12, 2012 and the production will play through

July 15, 2012 at The Pasadena Playhouse (39 S. El Molino). “I am very taken with the charm, romance, wit, and theatrical whimsy of this musical, and so pleased that The Playhouse is the designated choice for the next step in its development.” said Artistic Director Sheldon Epps. “We have had great success recently with shows born

on our stage that are now enjoying an extended life on Broadway and beyond (such as the Tony-nominated productions of Sister Act and Baby It’s You!). I believe that SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE has the potential for a long and happy theatrical future. I am sure that our audiences will be swept away as they discover the clever and contemporary score, which supports this

aters I have been in discussions with all through the development phase of the show. The relationship and chemistry that has developed with the creative and management team at The Playhouse through that process, coupled with the other shows that have played and been developed there and sent on to successful Broadway runs, made the decision an easy one for me. When I acquired the rights to produce the musical, I knew the story had heart and wit, and we have assembled an amazing creative team to really flavor the story with a contemporary feel. I hope audiences will fall in love with the stage production as they did with the 1993 film.” SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE – THE MUSICAL has a book by Jeff Arch, Shor’s longtime business partner, who penned the film’s original story and cowrote the screenplay, shar-

ing 1994 Oscar, BAFTA and WGA nominations with Nora Ephron and David Ward. Music and Lyrics are by Michelle Citrin, Michael Garin, and Josh Nelson. Joel Zwick (George Gershwin Alone, Dance With Me, Shenandoah, My Big Fat Greek Wedding) will direct. The American Film Institute (AFI) lists SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE among the Top 10 Best Romantic Comedies of all time and the film grossed over $227 million dollars worldwide. The film was nominated for two Academy Awards, two BAFTA Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, four MTV Movie Awards, one Writers Guild of America Award, and won an American Comedy Award and a Casting Society of America Award. SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE is based on the 1957 film An Affair To Remember starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr.

Starring Louis Prima Jr, Ricci Martin, Phil Crosby - the famous sons of Legends Louis Prima, Dean Martin and grandson of Bing Crosby, this fantastic musical event will feature some of the greatest tunes ever heard that defined a generation and leave the crowd Jump, Jiving and Wailing for more. Three Legends, One Amazing Show: Louis Prima Jr. carries on the legacy of his father, who was known as the original “King of Swing”, by bringing his famous father’s music to life, with an energetic performance and the unique, first-hand perspective of being the son of a music icon. Destined for musical greatness, Louis Jr. began his musical career with drums at the mere age of five. Moving on to piano by eight, Prima Jr. was becoming a virtuoso of all musical instruments, including trumpet and guitar. In the vein of his father, Prima Jr. set out to put together a show with a swinging and rocking band that will “Jive” you crazy with the feel of the “Wildest Show”

in Vegas. For six decades, Dean Martin entertained millions of adoring fans around the world. Since 2003, his son, Ricci Martin, has traveled around the globe entertaining countless numbers of fans - both young and old alike- in a profoundly entertaining show. The show features Ricci singing the classic hits of his father as he celebrates his life like you’ve never seen before. Reviews of the show and audience response have been tremendous! “It’s loaded with music, personal photos and true life stories not only about Dean Martin, the international Entertainer, but also Dean Martin, the Father” - and they are told from the heart by none other than his son, Ricci. For the last several years Phil Crosby has been performing in the Los Angeles area, including several Hollywood landmark theaters, and around the world! He has appeared onstage, on Television and radio, and in nightclubs in L.A., New York City, San Francisco, Nashville Tennessee, Tokyo Japan, and Dublin Ireland! Phil Crosby has developed into a seasoned crooner with his own style and interpretive ability inspired not just by the great jazz singers, such as his grandfather, but by a world of popular music and over a century of American songs!

Two of Arcadia’s super special volunteers were honored as the “Seniors of the Year.” Margaret and Jim Barrows word as a team. Jim is our City Clerk, and Margaret a former City Commissioner. Their volunteering covers nearly every aspect of work, from schools, traffic control, sporting events, setting up and manning snack shacks at city concerts on the lawn, football games, PTA.. I could fill

American Heart Association, Huntington Hospital to Host Second Annual Saving Strokes in Pasadena Program promoting stroke rehabilitation through golf help stroke survivors get back in the game of life The American Stroke Association, a division of the American Heart Association, in collaboration with Huntington Hospital, will host the second annual Los Angeles Saving Strokes event at the Brookside Golf Course in Pasadena (1133 Rosemont Avenue) on June 8, 2011, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is free to stroke survivors and their caregivers, and lunch will be provided. Saving Strokes promotes stroke rehabilitation through golf and empowers stroke survivors by illustrating that disabilities do not need to keep them from playing – or learning – golf. Sponsored by Huntington Hospital, the program offers stroke survivors one-on-one training with a golf pro to learn techniques for working with com-

mon stroke disabilities and increasing coordination and strength. Stroke survivors will have an opportunity to join their choice of activities designed to improve their golfing skills, including chipping and putting. Adaptive equipment will be available to participants, including adaptive carts for stroke survivors with balance or coordination issues and special golf clubs for participants who are in wheelchairs or have the use of only one side of their body. A Comfort Green will serve as a special retreat for caregivers to relax and enjoy a variety of activities. Stroke kills approximately 3,575 Angelenos every year. Nationally, stroke is the No. 3 killer and the leading cause of severe, long-term disability. About 700,000 Americans will have a new or recurrent stroke this year – or one person every 45 seconds.

The length of time to recover from a stroke depends on the severity – 50 to 70 percent of stroke survivors regain function independence, while 15 to 30 percent are permanently disabled. Techniques important in golf - such as focus, dexterity and balance – are critical in stroke recovery and rehabilitation. The Saving Strokes program was developed based on a 1999 study from the University of Chicago which showed that techniques important in golf - focus, dexterity and balance - can also improve strength and flexibility for stroke survivors. For information about Saving Strokes, contact your local American Heart Association at (213) 291-7000 or send an email to Jennifer. Halldorson@heart.org. Saving Strokes is sponsored in Los Angeles by Huntington Hospital.

John Shear Proclaimed Hometown Hero Continued from page 1

attendance for their support and kind words. He insisted he was just doing his job. Those in attendance gave Shear a standing ovation as he got up to the podium to receive the proclamation Tuesday. Shear, a former rider, who has been employed seasonally at Santa Anita since Dec. 23, 1961, sustained a fractured pelvis and other injuries as a result of the incident which took place prior to the third race on March 12. Shear was in his customary position, holding a perim-

eter rope on the east end of the track’s walking ring. As the field of 10 horses were readying for the upcoming race, Sea and Sage, a 3-yearold gelding, wheeled, freeing himself from his handler and in a 180 degree about-face, sprinted towards the opening Shear was guarding. As seen on live television, Shear threw himself in front of the young girl, in an act of selfless heroism that could well have saved her life. “By any accounting, John Shear is a hero,”

said Santa Anita President George Haines. “He is an amazing human being. John has been a great employee, a man that his peers looked up to. He loves this business and as he’s said many times, he loves being around it, the horses, the people.” The young girl had been brought to the track by her father, who wanted her to see that small people, jockeys, can be very successful, was uninjured, as was Sea and Sage.

Despite numerous obstacles including a bankruptcy at Santa Anita Park, Caruso soldiered on in the hopes that one day his vision would be realized. The City of Arcadia approved the project years ago and legal battles forced the inevitable decision to holt the project.

Calls to Arcadia First for comment were not immediately returned. Despite numerous obstacles including a bankruptcy at Santa Anita Park, Caruso soldiered on in the hopes that one day his vision would be realized. After five years now, it seems that vision is no more.

The city of Arcadia approved the project years ago and legal battles apparently forced the inevitable decision. There have also been whisperings of Caruso running for Los Angeles Mayor however spokespeople would neither confirm nor deny this possibility.

Antonovich Speaks on Arboretum Foundation

VACCO/Merle West Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning, since 1934

Continued from page 1 scope of its delegated authority.” This decision means that the county is not choosing to overturn the Board’s decision regarding the summer concert series, in which Pasadena POPS will be replacing California Philharmonic, who has been playing summers at the Arboretum for over 14 years. The Arboretum Foundation called for a request for proposals from area orchestras, and chose Pasadena POPS for the summer concert series. The summer concert series featuring Cal Phil will take place as scheduled this summer. The switch will take place in the summer of 2012. The Arboretum also hosts weddings, a fact which Arcadia Mayor Gary Kovacic was unaware of. “I haven’t been getting married lately,” said

Kovacic laughing. Kovacic, Antonovich, and others also discussed police jurisdiction over Arboretum events, and concluded that the county sheriffs would have jurisdiction over all events, rather than only being called in for major incidents. On the subject of crime, Antonovich also spoke on the Supreme Court’s decision to order the release of 46,000 prison inmates in order to relieve overcrowding and allow for better medical care of prisoners. The 5-4 decision, which was reached Monday May 23, means that counties will be flooded with criminals and have to deal with housing, security, and other related issues. “Now you’re getting hard-core criminals,” said Antonvich. “This realignment is going to have a catastrophic impact.”

Antonovich reported that the sheriff would be responsible for coming up with housing for the inmates, and the state is giving the county $25,000/ year for that purpose. Antonovich expressed frustration with the state for leaning on county resources. “80 percent of your budget is personnel … you need to increase productivity and eliminate salary saving positions” said Antonovich. He talked about how the state is just beginning to make cutbacks and deal with budgetary issues. “They’re just beginning to do this now; we’ve had the deficit for how long?” The state of California, in its budgetary crisis, continues to look to county and city resources due to the lack of state funds, and this in turn is taking a toll on education, community funding, and public services.

Monrovia PD

During the last seven day period, the Police Department handled 533 service events, resulting in 88 investigations. Following are the last week’s highlighted issues and events: Grand Theft Auto / Vehicle Burglary On May 13 at 9:12 p.m., police responded to the report of a stolen vehicle in the 900 block of South Primrose. The victim parked his 1994 Honda Accord at the location. When he returned to where he parked his vehicle, approximately an hour later, he discovered his vehicle was missing. The victim did not know his license plate number. The vehicle was located an hour later, half a block away in an alley. The stereo and speakers were missing from the vehicle. Attempt Suicide / Mental Evaluation On May 13 at 9:29 p.m., a female subject came to the police department lobby to report her ex-husband had stated that he was going to commit suicide. He had grabbed the garden hose and left the location in his truck, which has a camper shell. When his son called him, he stated that he was going to park somewhere, connect the hose to the exhaust pipe, and die of carbon monoxide poisoning. The ex-wife had driven around searching for the ex-husband, but when she was unable to find him, she came to the police station. The father re-

fused to tell his son where he was parked. Police dispatchers where able to locate the vehicle by using the cell phone and discovered the vehicle was parked in a parking lot in the 400 block of East Foothill. Officers arrived and located the vehicle with the hose attached to the tailpipe, leading into the camper shell. The officers opened the rear hatch and smelled a strong odor of carbon monoxide. The subject was lying in the bed of the truck, lethargic. Paramedics responded and took the subject to a hospital for treatment, where he was held for 72-hour mental evaluation. Assault with a Deadly Weapon - Suspect Arrested On May 13 at 10:14 p.m., officers were dispatched to a residence in the 100 block of Montana regarding a large party at the location, and someone reported seeing a firearm on a subject. A few seconds later, dispatch received a second call reporting a fight at the location and someone had been stabbed in the neck. Officers arrived a n d saw numerous subjects running from the location. A stabbing victim was found on the ground. Witnesses reported seeing the victim fighting with another male subject. Sometime during the fight, the suspect stabbed the victim. The suspect was last seen running south through the property. Containment of the area was established. During the investigation, police received a call from a business reporting a subject lying on the ground in front of their establishment between two vehicles. Officers responded and noticed the subject matched the description of the suspect from the stabbing incident. The subject

was positively identified as the suspect, and he was arrested and held for bail. The investigation is continuing. Assault with a Deadly Weapon - Suspect Arrested On May 15 at 10:31 a.m., officers responded to the area of Mayflower and Evergreen, where a fight between two male subjects had just occurred. One of the subjects had a pocket knife and slashed at the victim, causing a laceration to the victim’s arm. The suspect ran north on Mayflower where he was detained by an officer. The suspect still had the knife in his pocket. The suspect had gone to the location to drop off his child and an argument ensued between the suspect and the boyfriend of the child’s mother, which escalated into a fight. The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment of his injury. Attempt Suicide / Mental Evaluation On May 15 at 2:31 p.m., a female subject called to report she had received a telephone call from her mother who told her she had taken an entire bottle of pills. The mother hung up the phone and then would not answer. Officers responded to the residence located in the 400 block of East Foothill and were able to gain entry through an open sliding glass door. They searched the house, which was empty except for one bedroom that was locked, and no one was answering inside the room. An officer forced entry into the room and found the woman unresponsive. The officer performed first responder emergency aid until paramedics arrived. She was then taken to a hospital for medical treatment and held for 72-hour mental evaluation. Vandalism / Emergency Restraining Order Issued On May 16 at 8:01 a.m., police responded to the 800 block of West Olive regarding a disturbance. An adult male that had just moved in with his grandparents became verbally abusive toward them and his mother. The police were

called to mediate the situation. While police were at the residence, the subject broke the bathroom window with his fist. He refused medical treatment and was placed under private person’s arrest by his family. He was taken into custody and booked. When he was released from custody, he went directly back to his grandparent’s house, where he began yelling at them again. The grandmother called back and said she was scared and didn’t want him there. She requested an emergency protective order against him and a judge immediately issued a protective order. Officers served the order and removed the male from the home without incident. Commercial Burglary - Suspects Arrested On May 19 at 6:19 p.m., a business in the 700 block of East Huntington advised a theft of alcohol had just occurred. The male and female suspects fled in a black Honda. A witness followed the suspect’s vehicle and directed officers to them by phone. Officers apprehended the suspects on the 210 Freeway. The investigation revealed they had stolen alcohol from multiple stores. Four subjects were in the vehicle and all four were arrested and booked for burglary. Several of the suspects were admitted gang members or gang member associates and said they had taken the alcohol for a party. One of the male subjects is on parole for burglary and the female had recently been arrested for theft.

Dorothy “Dodie” Murset 1918 - 2011 Long time resident and community figure, Dorothy, better known as “Dodie,” passed away in her home on Sunday, May 15. Dodie had suffered a stroke 2 weeks prior and died of complications from the stroke. Born Dorothy Charlotte Fuller on July 29, 1918 in Kicking Horse Pass, Alberta, Canada, she and her mother moved from Canada when Dodie was a young girl to Seattle, Washington, where they resided until she reached her teens. Their next move was to El Sereno, CA, where Dodie entered El Sereno High School and met her future husband Milton “Milt” John Murset. They married in 1937, and the couple remained in El Sereno for the next few years and had their only child born in 1942, John Stanley Murset. When World War II broke out, Milt joined the Army and during that time Dodie became a volunteer teacher at a nursery school.

When Milt came home from the war in 1946, they heard about a great town not far from them called Temple City. They bought a large lot in Temple City for $2,500 and built their 2 bedroom home for $5,000. Dodie and Milt lived happily in their Temple City home together until Milt’s passing in 2002. During the years Dodie belonged to many clubs and organizations such as: The Power Squadrons, The Republican Club, The Seniors Club, Quota International and The Women’s Club of Temple City. Dodo was selected as Citizen of the Year in 1984 by the Chamber of Commerce and was also

honored by the City of Temple City as the Outstanding Older American in 1991. She was a volunteer at the LA County Arboretum, City of Temple City Parking Enforcement and belonged to the United Methodist Church of Temple City. Dodie also wrote a column for the San Gabriel Valley Weekly called “Over the Back Fence.” Both Dodie and Milt loved gardening, fishing and were avid campers and water skiers in their earlier years. Dodie loved sailing and at one time had her own sailboat. Dodie is survived by her only child, John Murset and wife Jeanne of Glendora, her five grandchildren, twelve great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. Services were held for Dodie Murset on Sunday, May 22, at The United Methodist Church of Temple City. Dodie will truly be missed by her family and many friends in Temple City.
