Taste of Arcadia Slated for September 19

Pasadena officials have expressed great interest in allowing an NFL team to use the Rose Bowl as a temporary home until residents living around the famous Rose Bowl said “NO Way” in a big way. The Linda Vista/Annandale Association board last week unanimously voted to oppose even a temporary home for an NFL team at the Rose Bowl. According to the Homeowners’ association there are already too many events, too much traffic and overuse of the Rose Bowl .

District officials razed the former Maranatha High School and Sierra Madre middle school in the summer of 2010, anticipating constructing a multi-building campus to accommodate the ever growing student population in Sierra Madre. However State cutbacks and politics have not exactly helped move things along depending upon who you talk to. The main delay has allegedly been the California State Board of Architectural Review which PUSD expects final approval this week. This in turn will allow PUSD to put the project out for bid and hopefully start construction realistically in Mid year 2012 according to

Assembly Rules Committee “Fails Math Test” Stanford Non-profit Refutes Recent Budget Numbers and Provides Smoking Gun that shows Portantino 37th Not First! Stanford University students do the math that Rules Committee can’t seem to get right. Independent research proves State Assembly manipulated budget numbers to show Assemblymember Anthony Portantino in bad light. According to the Stanford research, Portantino spends 37th on the list of spenders, not first as erroneously reported by the Assembly Rules Committee on Friday. At a Monday morning press conference, Dakin Sloss from California Common Sense, a Stanford University non-profit, joined Assembly Member Anthony Portantino to expose the misleading budget figures released by the Assembly Rules Committee late Friday evening. “Friday’s action makes it clear that Assembly leaders continue to mislead the public on how the Assembly

spends taxpayer money. The figures released by Assembly leaders make it impossible to determine what lawmaker’s real budgets are and what lawmakers are spending. It’s a very sad day in the Capitol when the public is treated with this kind of disrespect,” commented Assembly Member Portantino. In a startling revelation, the Stanford Research team presented a very compelling case that the reworked numbers falsely portray who’s spending what in the State Assembly. The researchers worked from Assembly payroll data which proves that staff members and consequently budgets received wholesale changes in order to artificially manipulate spending patterns. Some Assembly member budgets were manipulated to be lower than actual payroll data

shows. The Stanford students completed their analysis with the following statement: “One thing is clear: the Rules Committee has presented expenditure data in a way, which is inconsistent with the payroll data already available,” said CA Common Sense member Dakin Sloss. “The various discrepancies mentioned before, in

conjunction with the fact that Assembly Member Portantino’s personal staff salaries are now presented as larger than those of other members, raises suspicions that the expenditure data may have been released less for transparency’s sake and more as a vendetta against the seeker of transparency.”

An emotion filled meeting was held Thursday at Pasadena Fire Station 33 in response to the slaying of Marvin Laguan, 18 who was killed on Mar Vista Avenue Monday led to a standing room only crowd in a tiny sweltering community room of the firehouse. The meeting which was filled to capacity and spilled out into the hall was hosted by Pasadena District 5 City Councilman Victor Gordo. Police Chief Philip Sanchez, firefighters and other officers were on hand to aswer the many questions audience members had. “The gentleman( Languan) had gang associations, but we are not saying this was gang related,” Lt. Tracy Ibarra told the audience. .

Laguan was allegedly shot in the neck and died at Huntington Hospital. Gordo said “This is simply not acceptable that this happens in our community to anybody.” Despite the recent shooting Pasadena police Lt. Rodney Wallace called the neighborhood a relatively “quiet area.” Pasadena police Chief Phillip Sanchez asked the 75 people to help the dept. apprehend the individuals responsible for this crime. “There may have been some people who have seen some activity, they have not come forward,” he said. As of press time no one has been booked for the murder.

As I sat today sweating and trying to think of something to write for Dorothy’s Place, I thought of my old friend Pansy and how she used to say, “Lawdie, ain’t it hot today?” That set me to reminiscing about the Dog Days of my childhood on the farm. Dog Days were those extremely hot, sultry days that occurred during July and August. Days that sapped your energy and required special effort just to be. I remember one such day. I was in my favorite

summer play spot, under a huge spreading tree at the edge of the yard. The tree provided hours of lovely cool shade on hot days as I played with my dolls, old tin cups and treasured pieces of broken dishes. It was too hot to serve tea this day--much better relaxing in the swing, kicking little clouds of dust as I pushed at the ground with my bare feet. The summer air was hot and heavy. The stillness was broken only by the buzzing of insects, the occasional bawling of a cow and the rrut-a-tut, rruta-tut of the rope swing passing back and forth, back and forth across the tree branch. I kept the swing moving slowly--just enough to stir the air around my body. Because of the scorching Dog Day heat, Daddy had come in early from the

fields and was by the barn cooling down the horses. Suddenly he dropped his bucket and started toward me, moving in a quick but quiet kind of way. He motioned for me to stay put. I knew from the look on his face and the way he was moving that I must do as he said. I froze. Carefully, but quickly, he grabbed me and pulled me from the swing. Then, just as carefully and quickly, he grabbed a black snake that was winding its way from the branch down around the rope. He caught it just behind the head, yanked it from the rope and snapped it in the air. When he held it up afterwards, it was longer than he was tall! I did not play house or swing again for several days

Tour homes, Ramiro Road, San Marino; designer Jennifer Bevan Montoya, ASID, CID, Jennifer Bevan Interiors (626) 799-9924. Selected by the City of San Marino as a “representation of fine architecture of the city” for its centennial in 2013, this gracious home contains many architectural details and features identical to those found in homes by architect Wallace Neff. It is surmised that the local contractor, who built the house for himself, served as a contractor for Neff. The soaring, dramatic beamed ceiling in the living room was restored, along with the entry beans, by local artist Randall Stokey. The entry lantern is original; the living room fixture was added to enhance the ceiling.

(Below) Ramiro Road Kitchen: the designer created an open kitchen by knocking out the walls of three separate rooms. The expansive light-filled space is flanked by a cozy, yet sophisticated family room and breakfast area. Original, glass front cabinets provide extra storage in the breakfast area, which features a handsome cove ceiling original to the house. Special dry wall detail was added in the kitchen.   For information about the tour, call    (626) 799-8447 or (626) 792-8080.

Free Event! Brasil Brazil on September in South Pasadena A free “Back to School Labor Day Concert Celebration,” featuring the dynamic Latin jazz rhythms of Brasil Brazil, will be presented by the South Pasadena Arts Council (SPARC) in partnership with the South Pasadena Public Library on Thursday, September 1, 6:308:30 p.m., on the El Centro Street side of the library grounds near Diamond Avenue, adjacent to Farmers’ Market. Brasil Brazil, the critically acclaimed Brazilian vocal duo of Ana Gazzola and Sonia Santos, will perform popular Brazilian music in a variety of styles with an uplifting Carnaval beat. “Gazzola and Santos have developed a musical for-

mula based on a slick, well crafted display of movement and music,” wrote jazz expert Don Hackman in the Los Angeles Times, with a “vocal togetherness’ that is ‘as brightly colored as their outfits.” So bring a chair or a blanket, grab some food at the Farmer’s Market and come enjoy the Latin sounds of Brasil Brazil. The concert is supported in part by the South Pasadena Public Library, The South Pasadena Arts Council, the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. (The non-profit Pasadena Arts Council serves as SPARC’s fiscal sponsor.)

Assembly Rules Committee “Fails Math Test” Stanford Non-profit Refutes Recent Budget Continued from page 2 Either way, the Assembly Rules Committee has failed to fulfill its obligation to reliably disclose information about how the Assembly spends our taxpayer money and should do so promptly and accurately.” “The conclusions of the Stanford students are particularly alarming for me personally and for the State of California,” added Portantino. “The Stanford researches have spent the weekend cross-referencing the mis-

leading numbers released by the Rules Committee and the data available on the Assembly’s own web page and their conclusions are startling. They have completely exposed the clumsy attempt to falsely portray me in a bad light and exposed petty politics at its worst. The actions of the Assembly leaders not only undermine the public’s trust, they raise serious constitutional questions.” “I am asking the legislature to join me in requesting a

complete and thorough audit of the State Assembly’s budget and expenditures. I am calling on both houses of the Legislature to immediately adopt AB 1129 to make the State Legislature compliant with the same public records disclosure that every other state agency does in our great state. The games must end and the public must have access to accurate and comprehensive information.”

Equipment is being mobilized this week for the upcoming foundation Insert Sale Dates work on the I-210 Bridge. A large drill rig and crane have been trucked in and are being assembled on the south side of the eastbound I-210 Freeway. This is the location of the first of three 110 foot deep, 11

foot in diameter foundations to be drilled over the next four weeks. The other two are located in the center median of the freeway. Each foundation will take approximately six days to drill and cast. We anticipate drilling the first foundation next week, followed by the installation of

the reinforcing steel cage, concrete placement and testing the following week. This schedule is dependent on receiving final approval from Caltrans this week. During these activities, partial and full eastbound lane closures are planned (full closures occur late at night to minimize traffic delays).

Emergency Preparedness BY AMY LEONG Reaching out to the community, Red Cross stands fully prepared and ready to go in any situation. This time, destination Arcadia High School. Last Thursday, August 25, members from the local Arcadia Red Cross Chapter helped to prepare emergency kits for each classroom on Arcadia High

School’s campus. Totaling about 80 bags to fill, diligent members wasted no time to check supplies at their assigned stations. With about 4-7 items to put in at each station, the members were truly hard at work. Each bag was filled with numerous items, including bandages, cold packs, band aids, flash-

lights, playing cards, water, and more. Making sure to check each bag thoroughly, the 5 hours spent at Arcadia High helping Assistant Principal Mr. John Finn was all worth it, as we not only gained safety for our classrooms, but also a deeper appreciation for emergency preparedness.

The Hilarious ‘Flower Drum Song’ comes to the Historic San Gabriel Mission Playhouse The San Gabriel Valley Music Theatre and their Award Winning Creative Team which brought last year’s smash hit Miss Saigon to the San Gabriel Valley are mounting one of the most beloved musicals of all time, Rodgers and Hammersteins’ Flower Drum Song, over the weekend of October 1 and 2, 2011. Taking place at the Historic 1,400 seat San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, this opulent production is directed by Ray A. Rochelle, and will feature a stellar cast of performers accompanied by a live twenty-piece lavish orchestra conducted by Maestro Richard Allen. Producer Bobby Hundley says, “Flower Drum Song remains one of the most popular musicals of all time not only because of the fantastic score and terrific characters but it was such a progressive work for its day. In a fitting tribute, SGVMT will be honoring Hollywood Screen Legend Nancy Kwan at a dinner and performance in her honor for paving the way for Asian artists into the mainstream Hollywood and Broadway limelight. We’re honored to be associated

with Ms. Kwan and have the chance to bring this beautiful and funny masterpiece to our community.” Nancy Kwan was the original Linda Low in the film version of Flower Drum Song and recently released a powerful, feature documentary about her life entitled: Ka Shen’s Journey. SGVMT will be hosting a VIP dinner

and performance package; hosted by restaurant Mission 261 in conjunction with the October 1 and 2 Flower Drum Song performances. Flower Drum Song features such hits as “I Enjoy Being A Girl” “A Hundred Million Miracles” “Grant Avenue” and “Love Look Away” while telling the tale of Mei-Li, who flees Mao’s

communist China after the murder of her father and finds herself in San Francisco’s Chinatown. This naïve young refugee is befriended by Wang, who is struggling to keep the Chinese opera tradition alive despite his son’s determination to turn the old opera house into a swingin’ Western-style nightclub. A unique blending of American razz-ma-tazz and stylized Chinese opera traditions creates a beautifully theatrical tapestry. The wonderful score, by turns lushly romantic and showbiz-brassy, retains all of its luster in this lovely new version of an American classic. Mei-Li’s gradual assimilation is informed by her realization that the old and new can coexist when there is respect for both. For more information regarding tickets to this fantastic Broadway musical or our special Gala Dinner, please call 626-282-1440 or visit us online at: www.sgvmusictheatre.org. Tickets start as low as $20. This production is generously sponsored by the Hilton San Gabriel and Wells Fargo.

A paddock guard at Santa Anita for a half-century, John Shear gained national accolades for his selfless bravery early this year when, at age 90, he saved a young girl from serious injury while doing his job. Shear will be the featured subject on the next installment of HRTV’s award-winning “Inside Information” documentary series, set for Sunday, Sept. 4 at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT. The show will provide a retrospective look at his unforgettable act in shielding the young girl from a loose horse in the Santa Anita paddock in March, as well as a deeper look at the determined, hard-working English-born gentleman who grew up to love horses, and how they have brought him face-toface with some of the most

famous, and infamous, people in history. The show will include never-before-seen footage of the fateful March afternoon when Shear risked his own life, and suffered critical injuries that kept him in the hospital for more than a month. In addition, it will include a candid conversation with the affable, understated Shear, about his life, difficult in his younger years, and the many people he’s met along the way. Shear is an institution at the renowned Southern California track, and interviews with John’s son, Mike, his wife Diane, and Santa Anita officials provide a testament to his love for Santa Anita, and his resolute determination to man his usual paddock post for the track’s Winter/ Spring meeting on Dec. 26

Some Questions Come to Surface in Citizen's Letter Continued from page 1 additional questions in the hopes of getting some clarifification from officials about the ‘vacant’ council seat caused by Clarene Shaw’s military deployment. Mayor Lutz will address the letter Tuesday evening at City Council. “TO: Honorable Mayor and Members of the City Council 415 South Ivy Avenue, Monrovia, California 91016 FR: Dr. Jules S. Bagneris, III. Re: The City Council Seat Vacancy I hereby request that an item be placed on the agenda for the September 6, 2011 Monrovia City Council meeting to determine whether the City Council seat held vacant since July 6, 2011 is to be filled by an appointment or special election as referenced by state law. I believe a decision of this magnitude requires those with decisionmaking authority to allow the electorate as well as all stakeholders in the community to be invited to share their views at a public meeting. The City Council has not taken official action regarding this matter at a public meeting. Thank you in advance for your speedy reply to this request. FR: Dr. Jules S. Bagneris, III. cc: City Manager, City Clerk, City Treasurer Responsible journalism requires that we double check facts alleged in any letters we receive. The above letter has some omissions and possible errors in facts as stated according to our research. First, the writer has contacted at least one member of the City Council seeking to be “appointed” to Clarence Shaw’s “vacant” seat. Clarence Shaw’s seat is not ‘vacant.’ At his request it is being held for him until he completes his active duty service with the United States Army. Clarence Shaw’s seat is not vacant according to City Manager Scott Ochoa; it is being ‘held’ for him. Ochoa said, “This is Clarence Shaw’s request. It is his seat.” The Reverent Bagneris

wrote that the City Council was in “violation of state law” by not appointed someone or holding a special election to fill the ‘Vacant’ seat. In fact, the city would be in violation of Section 395.8 of the Military and Veterans Code of the State of California, if it made such an appointment. 395.8. states “Any officer, elective or otherwise, who leaves or shall have left the service of any city in order to enter upon active service with the armed forces of the United States shall be reinstated and restored to his office upon his discharge or release from such active service with the armed forces; provided, such discharge or release is prior to the expiration of the term for

the armed forces, whichever event first occurs.” The important and applicable words are that the office “shall not be considered vacant” and “may appoint.” According to Ochoa, it was Shaw’s request that his office not be considered vacant and in respect of that request and his service to this community and the country, the seat is being held open for him. When considered vacant, the office of an elected official must be filled by an appointment or the holding of a special election to fill the vacancy. According the City Attorney Craig Steele, “This office is not vacant.” He went on to explain that to be considered ‘vacant’ the office holder must have resigned, or be considered incapacitated (that incapacity can be up to and including death). “ I gave and entire brief to the council before the council meeting at which Shaw announced his activation,” Steele said. Shaw was in attendance when the Mayor publicly accepted his announcement and said that his seat would be held for him. Ochoa also pointed out that with current technology and considering that Shaw is still within the boundaries of the United States, he can reach other members of the City Council and his constituents can reach him. Ochoa said that should the need arise, the city planned to investigate technological means of holding a meeting with Shaw in his current location. “I don’t anticipate the need for such a meeting, but we can work it out if necessary.” All e-mails received by the City Council and weekly reports of the City Manager are sent to Shaw. He also has the ability to retrieve those messages immediately and, when his commitments to his military duty allow, to check with City Hall for phone messages left for him. “It is not as if we cannot reach him,” said Ochoa. The number for Monrovia City Hall is (626) 932-5550. Callers who wish to reach Shaw need to ask for his voice mail. The simplier method it

“I do not expect an election will be necessary. I do expect the council to make and interim appointment with the advice and consent of Councilman Clarence Shaw.” -Dr. Bagneris which he has been elected or appointed. The rights created by this section shall have no application to any officer who shall have been dishonorably discharged or released from such armed forces, or shall have been so mentally or physically disabled as to be incapable of performing the duties of his office or shall fail to present himself to the legislative body or other appointing authority of such city ready and willing to assume the duties of his office, within six months from the time of his discharge or release from active service with the armed forces. The office from which such officer absents himself to enter upon active service with the armed forces shall not be considered to be vacant but the legislative body or other appointing authority, as the case may be, may appoint an officer to temporarily replace any such officer so absenting himself to enter upon active service with the armed forces. Such temporary officers shall have all of the powers and duties of the office to which he may be temporarily appointed and shall hold said office until the expiration of the term thereof or until the officer returns from service with

Carell Movie More Sweet Than Cynical (Crazy, Stupid, Love) MOVIE REVIEW BY MICHAEL J. GONZALEZ Steve Carell certainly didn’t need my $11.50 this past weekend. His latest film, Crazy, Stupid, Love has grossed almost seventymillion dollars in five weeks at the box office, a respectable figure, considering its modest production budget.

I had been avoiding this film because romantic comedies in general don’t usually appeal to me. Movies like The Break-up, Sideways, or Garden State that are considered dramatic comedies don’t come around too often. But, while Love still treads the

more fluffier path in dealing with its subject matter, its central characters and plot are interesting enough to keep you entertained. The movie revolves around Carl (Steve Carell), a middle-aged, suburban husband whose wife (Julianne Moore) asks

COMMUNITY

for a divorce after cheating on him with an office coworker (Kevin Bacon). After Carl moves out of the family home, he begins to soak his sorrows at a local bar, telling anyone who will listen about his woes, until he meets Jacob (Ryan Gosling). Jacob is

everything Carl is not: rich, good-looking, well-dressed, and confident. Upon learning about Carl’s troubles one night, Jacob decides to take Carl under his wing, teaching him how to walk, talk, and dress like a ladies man. What the two men don’t realize,

however, is how much alike they actually are, as Jacob begins to question his womanizing lifestyle when he meets Hannah (Emma Stone), and Carl realizes that he must fight for the ones he loves after rediscovering his manhood.

He has enjoyed a unique international career entertaining audiences on stage, screen and television, in nightclubs and on concert stages throughout the world. The documentary, The Komediant, about Burstyn and his family, won the Israeli “Oscar.” In February and March 2011, Burstyn, who co-wrote and created his new musical, JOLSON AT THE WINTER GARDEN, debuted it at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre in Jupiter, FL to critical acclaim. He recently appeared Off-Broadway and in Los Angeles as Mayer Lansky in Lansky, which garnered him his second New York Outer Critics Circle Award nomination. He received his second New York Drama Desk Award nomination and rave reviews for his OffBroadway performance in On Second Avenue. He recently completed a sold-out concert tour of

Israel celebrating his 50th Anniversary in Show Business, and he co-starred with Valerie Harper in the National Tour of The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife. He won his New York Drama Desk Award nomination for his portrayal of Mayer Rothschild in the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway Revival of The Rothschilds. Burstyn starred on Broadway as P.T. Barnum in the Tony Award winning musical, Barnum (a role he recreated in the Dutch language production in The Netherlands). Other Broadway credits include: The Megilla, Ain’t Broadway Grand and Inquest, in which he was hissed and booed eight times a week as Roy Cohn.

Sierra Madre School Upper Campus Opens School Year in Portables – Construction of Campus Not Yet Gone to Bid Continued from page 1 school board member Ed Honowitz. It could take 18 -24 months. All the facts and figures are available on the state website: www.appps.dgs. ca.gov/tracker. It seems clear to even the novice reader of such complex documents that the $3,100,000.00 application # 113588 was approved on 6/21/2011 and yet the state says it is now up to the architect and PUSD to go forward with the bidding process for the construction phase. The whole process of state cutbacks and state authorizations has been “ Frustrating” according to Honowitz who spoke with Sierra Madre Weekly on Monday. Honowitz is Vice president of the PUSD School Board who oversees Sierra Madre

Schools. While PUSD School officials have publicly blamed the state’s Division of the State Architect, which approves all public school construction the problem also appears to be with paperwork to and from the state from the Architects hired by PUSD. According to PUSD “The demolition of the existing campus is moving swiftly and cleanly. Almost 100% of the wood coming from the roofs and supports of the existing building is being sent to be recycled. We have only done a small amount of asphalt and concrete demolition to this point however the plan is to recycle as much of that as we can (to CMB) also. We have received backcheck comments and notes

from the Division of the State Architect for the Upper campus drawing set. Working with the Architect, it is our goal to submit plans to DSA for the Lower campus this Friday, August 20th. Turnaround time for DSA right now is approximately four months. We are what is considered a “shovel ready” project, which means we are ready to go to bid as soon as approved and stamped plans are in place. This should afford us some level of priority in review.” Sierra Madre Weekly repeatedly tried to contact the Architect for the Upper Campus Project but our calls were not returned from Pasadena Unified’s architect for the project, Fred Wesley of Pasadena-based PBWS Architects.

Some Errors and Omissions in Citizen's Letter to Council

Continued from page 9 to send messages via e-mail sent to the City of Monrovia, Attn: Clarence Shaw. Bagneris also made the statement to members of City Staff and at least one member of the City Council that by leaving Shaw’s seat “vacant” his “constituents” were not being represented. “There are no specific district seats for which a candidate runs and is elected. Our Council is elected by the entire population of the city. No member of the council represents a specific portion or section of the city,” Ochoa said. “Every Council

Member is elected by and represents the entire community,” he concluded. We asked Dr. Bagneris, who is a doctor of philosophy in pastoral ministry, if he would run for Mr. Shaw’s seat should it come available/ He told us “I do not expect that an election will be necessary. I do expect the council to make an interim appointment with the advice and consent of Councilman Clarence Shaw.” Bagneris cited Government Code 36512 regarding city council seats, although

the Brown Act also prohibits discussion or decisions if not posted on the agenda. For your perusal, we submit government code: 36512 for you: “ (a) If a vacancy occurs in an appointive office provided for in this chapter, the council shall fill the vacancy by appointment. A person appointed to fill a vacancy holds office for the unexpired term of the former incumbent. (b) If a vacancy occurs in

an elective office provided for in this chapter, the council shall, within 60 days from the commencement of the vacancy, either fill the vacancy by appointment or call a special election to fill the vacancy. The special election shall be held on the next regularly established election date not less than 114 days from the call of the special election. A person appointed or elected to fill a vacancy holds office for the unexpired term of the former incumbent. (c) Notwithstanding subdivision (b) and Section 34902, a city may enact an ordinance that does any of the following: (1) Requires that a special election be called immediately to fill every city council vacancy and the office of mayor designated pursuant to Section 34902. The ordinance shall provide that the special election shall be held on the next regularly established election date not less than

114 days from the call of the special election. (2) Requires that a special election be held to fill a city council vacancy and the office of mayor designated pursuant to Section 34902 when petitions bearing a specified number of verified signatures are filed. The ordinance shall provide that the special election shall be held on the next regularly established election date not less than 114 days from the filing of the petition. A governing body that has enacted such an ordinance may also call a special election pursuant to subdivision (b) without waiting for the filing of a petition. (3) Provides that a person appointed to fill a vacancy on the city council holds office only until the date of a special election which shall immediately be called to fill the remainder of the term. The special election may be held on the date of the next regularly

established election or regularly scheduled municipal election to be held throughout the city not less than 114 days from the call of the special election. (d) (1) Notwithstanding subdivision (b) and Section 34902, an appointment shall not be made to fill a vacancy on a city council if the appointment would result in a majority of the members serving on the council having been appointed. The vacancy shall be filled in the manner provided by this subdivision. (2) The city council may call an election to fill the vacancy, to be held on the next regularly established election date not less than 114 days after the call. (3) If the city council does not call an election pursuant to paragraph (2), the vacancy shall be filled at the next regularly established election date.” Mayor Lutz will address the issue Tuesday September 6 at the regularly scheduled council meeting.

A New Musical Starring: MIKE BURSTYN Two Weeks Only: September 6 – 18 Continued from page 13 the Westchester Broadway Theatre; as Nathan Detroit in Guys & Dolls with Vic Damone; in 1040, a new musical by Jerry Bock (Fiddler On The Roof) and Jerry Sterner (Other People’s Money) at the University of Houston; as Kurt Weill in Berlin To Broadway at the Coconut Grove Playhouse (Carbonell Award nomination); in Hatikva, his tribute to Israel’s 50th Anniversary and in the National Tour of the Broadway musical, Those Were The Days. In his heyday, American singer, comedian and actor Al Jolson, was dubbed as “The World’s Greatest Entertainer.” During his lifetime from May 26, 1886 – October 23, 1950, he had lived in various areas throughout the Southland, and had homes in Toluca Lake, Encino, Beverly Hills and spent a short stint in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. He also served as Mayor of Encino at one time. Jolson was born in the Russian Empire, now part of Lithuania. He emigrated to America with his Jewish parents at the age of five. He popularized a good many songs and was known for his brash and extroverted performing style. During the 1930s

he was America’s highest paid and most famous entertainer. Between the years of 1911 – 1928, Jolson performed in nine sold-out Winter Garden shows in New York in a row on Broadway. During the course of his career, he made more than 80 hit records and embarked on 16 national and international tours. He is perhaps best remembered as the star of the first full-length talking movie, The Jazz Singer, which was made in 1927. In the 1930s he appeared in a number of successful musical films. In 1946, actor Larry Parks portrayed Al Jolson with songs dubbed in with Jolson’s real voice in the Academy Awardâ winning film, The Jolson Story. A sequel to that film, Jolson Sings Again, made its debut in 1949, garnering three Academy Awardâ nominations. Al Jolson became the first star to entertain troops oversees during World War II, as well as in 1950 when he became the first star to perform for servicemen in Korea, logging in 42 shows in 16 days. He died only weeks after returning to the United States while playing cards in his suite at the St. Francis Ho-

tel in San Francisco, where he collapsed and died of a massive heart attack at the age of 64. His last words were: “Boys, I’m going.” He is interred at Hillside Memorial Park Cemetery in Culver City, CA, where his widow commissioned architect Paul Williams to create a six-pillar marble structure mausoleum, next to a bronze statue of Jolson, resting on one knee, with arms outstretched, as if he were ready to break into another verse of his signature song, My Mammy. El Portal Theatre; 5269 Lankershim Boulevard; North Hollywood, CA 91601. A Limited Engagement of the new musical will be presented at the El Portal Theatre from September 6 – 18, 2011 on Tuesdays through Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. In addition, Matinees performances will be given at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

POLICE BLOTTERS Arcadia PD

For the period of Sunday, August 21, through Saturday, August 27, the Police Department responded to 885 calls for service of which 117 required formal investigations. The following is a summary report of the major incidents handled by the Department during this period. Sunday, August 21: At about 1:30 p.m., officers responded to the area of El Monte Avenue and Woodruff Avenue regarding a vandalism report. Suspect(s) spray painted multiple locations, including a utility box and several walls in the area with black spray paint. Shortly before 10:30 p.m., officers observed a suspicious Chevrolet Suburban with an attached trailer leaving the parking lot of Hometown Rentals, 102 West Las Tunas Drive. A check of the business revealed an open and unsecured gate. The vehicle and its three occupants, including a 33-year-old Hispanic female, a 37-year-old Hispanic male, and a 16-year-old Hispanic male were detained, and a record check of the suspects revealed an outstanding warrant for one of the passengers. The trailer also contained a large, gas-driven trenching machine, which had been stolen from the premises. Arrests were made for commercial burglary, grand theft, and the outstanding warrant. Monday, August 22: At approximately 3:00 p.m., a grand theft occurred at the Westfield Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue. While the victims were shopping, their grey, black and red Quasar Mountain bicycle and blue Cannondale F-4 Mountain bicycle were stolen from the parking lot. Shortly before 6:00 p.m., loss prevention personnel from Macy’s at the Westfield Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, detained two females for theft. The suspects removed shoes from their boxes to make fraudulent returns and concealed additional merchandise underneath their clothing. Both females of unknown race, ages 54 and 38, were arrested for commercial burglary. Officers determined the suspects entered the store with the intent to steal. Tuesday, August 23: At about 11:11 p.m., officers responded to the area of Santa Anita Avenue and Morlan Place regarding an attempted robbery. The suspect was described as a Black male, with grey dread locks, wearing a painter’s outfit, and armed with a knife and hammer. A subject that matched the description was located and detained. An investigation revealed the reporting party and suspect, who were both transients, had a disagreement over a place to sleep. The reporting party, a 38-year-old Black male, was arrested for falsely reporting an emergency.

At approximately 6:25 p.m., loss prevention personnel from Sephora at the Westfield Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, detained a female for theft. The suspect took merchandise, concealed it in a red bag, and walked out of the store without paying. Merchandise from four additional stores was also located in the bag. The 39-year-old Hispanic female was arrested for commercial burglary. Wednesday, August 24: At about 6:23 p.m., units were dispatched to the Arcadia Retirement Hotel, 753 W. Duarte Road, regarding a suicidal adult male. It was determined the 66-year-old male of unknown race was suffering from depression and was a danger to himself. He was transported to a local area hospital for psychiatric evaluation and treatment. Between 9:15 p.m. and 11:28 p.m., an auto theft occurred in the 100 block of North First Avenue. Suspect(s) stole a green, 2000 Dodge Durango SUV from the parking lot of the location. Thursday, August 25: Shortly before 6:00 a.m., officers responded to the 1100 block of Volante Drive regarding a suspicious circumstance. The reporting party had heard a loud “bang” and thought someone had entered his home. An area check revealed several unlocked vehicles had been entered into and ransacked, however no loss was reported. At about 3:19 p.m., units were dispatched to the Tierra Verde Park located at Camino Real Avenue and Second Avenue, regarding a suspicious Black male subject who was seen climbing trees. Officers located and detained the suspect. The 26-year-old Black male was placed under arrest for being under the influence of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia. Friday, August 26: Shortly after 2:00 p.m. in the 1200 block of Short Street, a resident observed a heavy-set adult male in a brown, possibly a Dodge Caravan, stop in front of the mail boxes near her home. A female subject exited the vehicle and opened each mail box. A short time later, the resident observed the same vehicle stop in front of her residence, at which time the female subject exited the vehicle and removed the mail from her mail box, and the neighbor’s mail box. Around 1:10 p.m., officers responded to the Westfield Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, regarding a commercial burglary at Victoria’s Secret. The loss prevention manager noticed a significant quantity of bras missing from the display table. After verifying the merchandise had not been sold, he viewed the store’s surveillance video which revealed two suspects quickly concealing

bras inside a plastic bag. Both suspects exited the store with a total of 61 bras. Saturday, August 27: Officers responded to the area of westbound Huntington Drive and Sunset Boulevard around 6:16 a.m. regarding a solo vehicle hit and run traffic collision. Officers observed a male subject running in and out of traffic lanes in the area of Huntington Drive and Old Ranch Road. Officers followed the subject on foot and detained him after he slipped and fell in the center median. The 27 year-old Asian male was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and hit and run. He was cited and released for both violations. At about 9:30 p.m., units were dispatched to the Westfield Santa Anita Mall, 400 South Baldwin, regarding a sexual battery re-

port that had just occurred in the Macy’s parking lot. While the victim was entering her vehicle, an adult Hispanic male grabbed her buttocks and proceeded to run south through the parking lot towards Huntington Drive. Officers quickly located and detained the suspect, whom the victim positively identified. Meanwhile, officers responded to the mall regarding a second battery report, possibly committed by the detained suspect. The second victim advised that at approximately 9:30 p.m., she was placing items into her car trunk in the Macy’s parking lot, when she felt an unknown subject approach her from behind and grab her around the waist. The subject grabbed and squeezed her buttocks while making a derogatory statement, and fled on foot through the parking lot. This victim was unable to make a positive identification. A private person’s arrest was made, and the 45-yearold Hispanic male was taken into custody for sexual battery.

IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. You appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in Probate Code section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date notice above. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account provided in Probate Code section 1250. A request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner Robert W. Hunt (SBN 148826) 2200B Douglas Blvd., Ste. 150 Roseville, CA 95661 (916) 780-7008.
