Arcadia High Girl, 16, Killed in Crosswalk,

El Monte Man Arrested for Creating Unauthorized Community Military Unit, Called Himself “Supreme Commander” Alert:

Recent Rash of Robberies

Friend Severely Injured By Terry Miller

On April 10, 2011 at about 6:40p.m., Arcadia Police and paramedics responded to an injury traffic collision in the 600 block of west Duarte Road. Preliminary investigation revealed that two 16-year-old girls were crossing Duarte Road on foot when they were struck by a vehicle traveling westbound on Duarte Road. Detective Mike Hale of the Arcadia police dept. said at this point It looks like “speed was probably not a factor” in this accident as he was examining the recreated scenario at exactly 6:43p.m. on Monday eve-

elected. The council seats

The San Gabriel Police Department in cooperation with neighboring police departments is investigating a recent rash of robberies. At this time there is believed to be at least 18 robberies, seven of which have occurred in the City of San Gabriel, where the modus operandi appears to link the crimes to the same suspect. The robberies have typically occurred when the victim is alone and has returned home late at night, between 11:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m., and is in the process of parking their vehicle within their driveway and/or garage. The victim is approached by the suspect demanding their money and/or property. In a majority of the robberies the suspect has displayed a handgun. The suspect is dressed in dark clothing and his face has been covered with a either a ski mask and/or bandana. Although, the suspect’s description has varied the general description is a male, 5’-7” to 6’00” tall, 180-200 pounds. The San Gabriel Police Department would like to remind residents to be vigilant and know your surroundings. • If possible, travel with a companion; this is especially important when it is dark outside. • At night, walk in well-lighted parking lots and well-traveled areas. Avoid walking while talking on a cell phone and looking downward. • Don’t overburden yourself with shopping bags or a purse, carrying too much marks you as a victim. Place your purse in a shopping bag, not on your shoulder where criminals see it and make it easier to steal. This also leaves both hands free and makes it difficult to steal. • If you suspect you’re being followed, turn and walk quickly in the opposite direction, and go to a well-lighted and well-populated area.

Did You Know... TheGoodLife

By Wally Hage The following is a list of great fun facts that could cause you to enjoy your meals in a whole new way! Food isn’t just fun to eat; it is also fun to read about. Many intriguing facts surround food - all types of food from vegetables and fruits to fast food, diet sodas, and popcorn. Whether you use the information to impress your friends or simply that you are curious about the foods you eat, these unusual and somewhat unknown facts will give you a brilliant insight to a smorgasbord of new knowledge. This information is also useful because ... as the famous saying goes, “you are what you eat.” Avocados are about 22

percent fat, with the average medium size avocado containing 300 calories and 30 grams of fat. Honey is the only food that does not spoil. The sugar substitute Splenda is 600 times sweeter than sugar. A fast food hamburger, super size fries and large coke have about 1500 calories. High fructose corn syrup in baked goods, gives a pleasing brown crust to breads and cakes. In general, raw vegetables have a much higher nutrient value than cooked, though there are a few exceptions, such as cooked tomatoes and cooked artichokes, which are very high in antioxidant value. When you are shopping for berries the smaller the size of a berry, the sweeter it tastes. When preparing a welldone steak, especially if it has “charred” portions, it contains much higher levels of

carcinogens than a medium-done or rare steak. Artificial colorings in foods have been linked to increased incidence of ADHD symptoms. In order for green tea to have a therapeutic effect, you must consume 4 to 5 cups daily. A raw apple is healthier than applesauce, which is better than bottled apple juice, which is better than apple pie. Whenever a recipe for cake or muffins calls for oil, applesauce can be substituted. And Finally, Cocoa is making its way through the world of nutrition. Yes, cocoa is chocolate but in its purest form. Cocoa has been used for thousands of years. Research has recently shown us that dark chocolate has the ability to reduce blood pressure with its wondrous health benefits. Bon-Appetite.

By Dorothy Denne Too many people, not enough space. That presents a real challenge. It is not extremely pleasant to hear the guy next door brushing his teeth, coughing and burping, among other things. That’s apartment living with thin walls. People too close. Our friends live in a condo. It is lovely. Big living room, dining area, three bedrooms, two baths, all on one floor. Therein lies the catch. All on one floor means someone else has a lovely condo all on one floor—directly above theirs. My friends were perfectly happy until a family of Storm Troopers moved into that lovely condo directly above theirs. It wasn’t too bad a first but shortly after move-in the Troopers pulled up the carpet from the entryway,

Dorothy's Place the halls and the dining room. They replaced it with linoleum. That’s linoleum, not vinyl. My friend knows. She went up to visit them when the tromping and chair scooting, all hours of the day and night, began to drive her nuts. She didn’t know until then why it had all become louder. When she saw the floors, she explained the noise situation to them and suggested maybe they could put an area rug in the dining room and carpet runners in the hallways. They were not receptive. She quit smiling. She reminded them that the condo by-laws require carpeting in units on the second and third floors. The upstairs lady quit smiling. She spluttered in a militaristic tone, “What are you talking about? This is our home. We put

in it what we like and we like linoleum.” People too close. Attending a social gathering, I was chatting with a group of women. One commented, “Well, I told my friend to call the police. The people next door to her have a whole bunch of chickens in their backyard. Can you imagine a yard full of chickens next door?” I said, “I think I’d rather have a yard full of chickens than a teen-ager with drums.” Another piped up, “Oh God yes. I’ve got that plus guitars and amplifiers. People too close. How about the neighbor with a motorcycle? Your cats run for cover, your heart jumps and your ears split. Your neighbor waves to you and roars out the driveway. People too close.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, Sheri Bonner, of Pasadena/San Gabriel Planned Parenthood, is blind. She needs to read her bottomline and then be candid with the results of that little peek at reality. Planned Parenthood, a scandalridden leech on taxpayer money, makes most of its income from abortions. The other medical procedures employed are a tangential part of the warm-up to their cash-cow; abortions. Remove abortions and federal tax support and Ms. Bonner will have to go to work for George Soros directly, instead of

through his one-world-order fronts. In addition to editorializing on the front page with no consumer warning, a no-no in all media adhering to widely held journalistic principles; you provide no space in your article or elsewhere for opposing positions. Contact Brian Burch [brianburch@ catholicvote.org] for the counterpoint to your frontpage extremist scare piece. Also, the shutdown didn’t happen and this Congress, much against the will of the Left made a historic change. It moved from the Obama-Reid-

Pelosi method of printing money until the problems go away [they won’t], to considering and voting in favor of “cuts”. The rest of the larger debate will be framed by this first decision. Do you come to terms with a household or business budget that’s in the red by borrowing more? Or do you do the normal thing, look for expenses to cut and look for more income?

Metro’s 30/10 Initiative has now gone national as America Fast Forward. The proposal would leverage federal assistance to accelerate construction of local transportation projects. Here are updates on a few of the projects: Regional Connector Transit Corridor > The Federal Transit Administration gave formal approval for preliminary engineering work to begin on the Regional Connector, bringing it a step closer to actual construction. > A two-mile, fully underground light rail line has been approved for the route of the Regional Connector Transit Corridor connecting the Metro Gold Line, Metro Blue Line and future Expo Line through Downtown LA. > The route would connect with the Metro Blue and Expo lines at 7th Street/Metro Center Station and with the Metro Gold Line at Alameda Street.

El Monte Station > Construction is underway on a new $45 million El Monte Station at Santa Anita Avenue and Ramona Boulevard in El Monte. > The project doubles the capacity of the original El Monte Station that opened in 1973 and features a two-story building with a public bus terminal, retail space, customer service center and parking.

Gold Line Foothill Extension > Public comment is being gathered on the second phase of the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension between Azusa and Montclair. > The project will be constructed in two segments; Phase 2A, from East Pasadena through Azusa; Phase 2B, from Glendora to Montclair. > Ground was broken on the >rst phase, an 11.4-mile extension, last summer.

Midnight Interlude , number 6, ridden by Victor Espinoza makes a surprising win over the favorite Saturday during the Santa Anita Derby. Midnight Interlude now heads to the Kentuck Derby - Photo by Terry Miller

The Hall of Fame trainer was all smiles when Midnight Interlude scored a surprising victory in the Grade I, $1 million race Saturday, suddenly giving Bob Baffert a third option for the Kentucky Derby. “We weren’t sure,” Baffert said about the unproven colt. “He’d been training well, but he hadn’t had the class test, gut-check yet.” Midnight Interlude got it in the stretch, rallying under Victor Espinoza to overhaul Comma to the Top and win by a head in the west’s biggest prep for the May 7 Kentucky Derby. Midnight Interlude ran 1 1-8 miles in 1:48.66 before an on-track crowd of 31,523. The victory represented a dramatic turnaround for Baffert and Espinoza from last April. That’s when Lookin At Lucky got squeezed down along the rail, forcing Garrett Gomez to stand up in the saddle. Gomez accused Espinoza, riding a horse called Who’s Up, of bouncing him off the rail. He went after Espinoza after the race, landing punches before the two were separated and later went at it again in the jockeys’ room. Baffert was furious at Gomez for putting his horse into that spot, and he wasn’t

too pleased with Espinoza. “I told Victor, ‘A year ago I wanted to kill you. Now you win the Santa Anita Derby,’ ” Baffert said, smiling. Last year, Baffert’s wife, Jill, lit into Espinoza, asking why he tried to unseat Gomez. Espinoza repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, but the damage to his long relationship with Baffert was done. The two, who won the 2002 Kentucky Derby with War Emblem, drifted even further apart, having previously butted heads. But when Baffert needed a rider for Midnight Interlude, he called Espinoza’s agent, and the jockey was back in the fold, riding for Baffert for the first time since Santa Anita’s meeting opened Dec. 26. “They know I still respect them,” Baffet said of the riders. “My wife was upset because she was worried Lookin At Lucky could have gotten hurt and I was mad because he (Gomez) shouldn’t have been in that spot.” Now, Baffert and Espinoza are headed to the Derby together. “We’ve always been lucky and I think this year we’re going to go forward again,” the jockey said. “I’m just excited to be back. We’re old-timers, huh, Bob.”

It was Espinoza’s first Santa Anita Derby win, and Baffert’s record sixth. Jill Baffert was in Arkansas on Saturday, watching her horse lose in the Oaklawn Handicap. “She’s so excited,” he said. “She needed a pickerupper.” Sent off at 13-1 odds by the crowd of 31,523, Midnight Interlude paid $29.80, $12 and $6. It was Baffert’s third win on the day’s card. Midnight Interlude was the least accomplished of Baffert’s Kentucky Derby possibilities, having lost his first two races before winning for the first time by 8½ lengths on March 20. That role was supposed to belong to Uncle Mo, who lost for the first time Saturday, finishing third in a stunning defeat in the Wood Memorial. Anthony’s Cross was fifth, followed by Indian Winter, Bench Points, Quail Hill and Offlee Wild Boys. In the day’s other stakes, Liberian Freighter won the $150,000 Arcadia Stakes by a half-length; Cambina took the $150,000 Providencia Stakes by three-quarters of a length; and Separate Forest earned a neck win in the $100,000 Las Cienegas Handicap.

Record Low Voter Turnout in Monrovia Election Continued from page 1 were taken by the incumbents, Becky Shevlin and Tom Adams. Adams, who has served on the council since 1994, ran a very low key campaign relying on his record alone. Shevlin, who was appointed to her seat when Lutz was elected Mayor and an addition seat was open on the council in 2009, walked precincts and spoke to everyone about every issue. She made herself available to the electorate. The hard work paid off for Shevlin: she brought in almost 40%0 of the votes cast. Adams polled 33 % while first time candidate Chris Ziegler garnered just over 13%. Amazingly, Jason Cosylion brought in only 2.7% and Joe Espinosa, who withdrew from the campaign after the death of the mother of his six year old son, came in with 7.8% of the votes cast. This means the council remains as established.

It was not a slam dunk for the mayor; there were several write in votes, none of which could be counted as they were not registered write in candidates. Former Mayor Bob Bartlett said that he was gratified that he received for votes than Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck. Former Mayor Rob Hammon also received votes as did Cyrus Kemp (2). Final Election results: Mary Ann Lutz 2295 100% Write ins 75 2.7% City Council Member Joe Espinosa 7.8% 382 Jason Cosylion 132 2.7% Chris Ziegler 785 16.1% Tom Adams 1615 33.2% Becky Shevlin 1036 39.9% Of the 19,619 only 2,683 individuals voted. The Mayor and council

will be installed at the regular May 3 meeting of the council. Voter turnout in the municipal election was among the lowest in Monrovia’s history. A mere 13.6% of Monrovia’s registered voters cast ballots. Mayor Lutz ran unopposed for a second twoyear term as Mayor. She received 2,295 votes out of the 2,682 ballots cast. Adams and Shevlin were challenged for new four-year terms by Chris Ziegler, Joe Espinosa and Jason Cosylion. Shevlin received 1,936 votes; Adams, 1,615; Ziegler, 785; Espinosa, 383 and Cosylion, 132. Of the 2,682 voters, 1,698 voted by mail, with just 984 Monrovians going to the polls to vote on Tuesday. The returning Mayor and Councilmembers will be sworn in at the May 3 City Council meeting.

By Susan Motander you obviously didn’t care. I can only assume that you do not care about who governs the city or the decisions they make regarding your tax dollars to spend

the few minutes it would tale to listen to the issues (the forums have been on KGEM for weeks) and to vote for the candidate of your choice.

To those of you who could not be bothered, sit down, shut up and let those who care take the lead.

Editor’s Note: We also were alerted to a disturbing comment (posted on a local blog the day after the election by TOM ADAMS). As a newspaper of public record in the city of Monrovia, we felt the comment posted was somewhat inappropriate: Here is what the re-elected Tom Adams has to say on that blog: “…I will continue to use this vehicle to communicate with Monrovia. I think it is a very efficient way to communicate with a larger group of people and only ask that people are respectful. Thank you again!” - Tom Presumably said “vehicle” is the blog to which he penned his post election thoughts and comment. Disregarding other media in town, as he did with a recently email, Mr. Adams has insulted not only his constituent’s, but his fellow councilmembers.

ning. Detective Hale said the conditions in which the accident took place involve a series of scenarios and conditions which may take a while to fully understand. He was referring to the location of the setting sun, the visibility factor at the crosswalk at that exact time as well as the driver’s attention, condition of car and other factors. Alice Zhang died as a result of injuries sustained in the collision. The other girl was treated and transported to Huntington Memorial Hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the older model Lexus that struck the girls, a 20-year-old Arcadia man, was not arrested. The news of an Arcadia High School student being struck by a car Sunday evening as she and a friend crossed Duarte Road came as a shock to the community at large but to those who knew the victim, it was particularly hard.Principal David Vannasdall sent the following memo to all teachers on Monday morning after receiving the news: “I am sorry to have to share this tragic news this morning. Runnan (Alice) Zhang, an 11th grader was

hit by a car and killed as she crossed Duarte Road near Baldwin last night. We know another student was also hit and is in the hospital. We do not know the name of the other student at this time.This news will be tragic and shocking to everyone since many people will be hearing this for the first time. A counselor will be present in Alice’s classrooms today to help share this news and support students and staff. Students who need to talk to someone can be sent with another student to the COD desk. “Principal Vannasdall, reflecting on the sudden death of one of his students made the following statement to the Arcadia Weekly:“Alice was an excellent student with a 3.91 GPA and very connected to AHS outside of the school day. She was a member of the Track Team, Physics Team and looking forward to representing her school as a member of the prestigious Senior Men and Women next year as well as a member of the Constitution Team. AHS will greatly miss Alice and the positive impact she had on the students and staff.” Her AP English teach-

coupon needs to be present for the discount

er, Mr. Johnny Lee, said, “Alice is determined, friendly and inquisitive. She never wavered in any situation and smiled always. Behind her quiet exterior she is warm and passionate. She is what any person would be lucky to call a friend. She had the special aura that made everyone wish they knew her better. She stood out without needing to ask to standout.” Vannasdall went on to say “The news of this tragic accident was a shock to everyone as we returned from Spring Break. Teachers shared the tragic news with their first period classes and counselors were present in Alice’s classes as well as on hand to support students in need. It was a difficult and sad morning but also one of celebration for a life that has impacted so many people. Alice will be missed. The ASB president, Jon Ma, had a moment of silence in memory of Alice during the all school assembly yesterday morning at 9:45 in the stadium. Students are wearing purple, Alice’s favorite color, on Friday to celebrate her life.” Services are pending.

This year’s Chamber of Commerce Installation and Citizen of the Year Award Dinner on March 31st was a triple winner with the celebration and recognition of retiring Chamber executive director Beth Costanza (who had the dubious pleasure of being roasted by former Mayor George Fasching). Mayor Peter Amundson installed the incoming Chamber president, Bob Hoffman and board of directors. Scott Hettrick, new executive director of the

Chamber, served as emcee and kept the agenda on schedule. Citizen of the Year, Sho Tay, was introduced by last year’s honoree, Vince Foley, who always does a heads up job. The V.I.P. evening included a delicious dinner and silent auction. The ambience of the Chandelier Room added to the success of a well paced evening that was enjoyed by all. Congratulations to Beth, Bob and Sho.

One of the most exotic and colorful programs was presented by “Hands on History Program for Families” at the Charles and Ruth Gilb Arcadia Historical Museum April 2nd. Fifteen beautiful Thai dancers performed traditional dances in elaborate gold headdresses and satin native attire.

(L-r) Ray Rochelle, managing director of the San Gabriel Valley Music Theatre, Bobby Hundley, producing artistic director of S.G.V.M.T., and guest singer Corinne Delgado, at “The Spotlighters” Tea, held at San Gabriel Country Club.

The Spotlighters, the official support group of the San Gabriel Valley Music Theatre, hosted an elegant and fun filled Afternoon Tea at the San Gabriel Valley Country Club on March 27, at 2 p.m. Producing Artistic Director Bobby Hundley was on hand to share the vision of the company as well as crowd favorites Ray Rochelle and Corinne Delgado, who wowed guests by singing selections from some of the most beloved Broadway musicals. Following the success of their hit shows Miss Saigon, Forever Plaid and South Pacific: In Concert, the San Gabriel Valley Music Theatre, founded in 2004, with the mission to bring Broadway musicals back to the historic San Gabriel Mission Playhouse, readies to announce their 2011/2012 season of shows. Future plans include an after school arts education program, a professional apprenticeship program beginning July 2011, a season of musicals to be an-

nounced at the end of April, and their May production of the fan favorite musical comedy Guys and Dolls. “The support from within the community to see musicals running again at the playhouse has just been tremendous. There’s such a strong sense of community and magic about this legendary theatre and people feel it when they attend a musical here at the playhouse,” said Producer Bobby Hundley. “Our goal the past couple of years has been to build our community one musical at a time and I’m excited that we are finally able to offer a subscription series to do that because the Mission Playhouse is simply put; an amazing place to produce and watch classic Broadway shows.” Hundley did drop a hit of excitement in the room by announcing the first show of the 2011/2012 season, a celebrity event titled Sons of the Legends, a musical tribute to Dean Martin, Louis Prima and Bing Crosby, starring

Everyday is an open house:

their famous children, Louis Prima, Jr., Ricci Martin and Phil Crosby, taking place July 30, 2011, at 2 and 8 p.m. One could feel the buzz instantly fill the room as guests were given the opportunity to purchase advanced tickets and did they ever. The company intends on announcing the remaining the remaining season lineup just in time for its Broadway In Concert production of Guys and Dolls coming to the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse for one night only on May 7, 2011, 8 p.m. The production will feature a lavish 20-piece orchestra onstage with a stunning cast of over 25 top notch performers.

Antonovich Hopes Increasing Security Measures Will Restore Public Trust at Dodgers Stadium Los Angeles County Mayor Michael D. Antonovich expressed his support for Bryan Stow and his family and called on the Dodgers to immediately implement the strong security measures necessary to improve public safety at

Dodger Stadium. “We join with millions of county residents in praying for Bryan Stow and his recovery and send our best wishes to his family who have been through so much as a result of this tragedy,” he said.

“Unfortunately for Bryan and his family, the Dodgers’ promises to improve public safety are a day late and a dollar short. Hopefully, having former LAPD Chief Bratton initiate overdue security measures in and outside the

stadium will restore the public trust by adding additional security personnel, enhancing lighting in the parking lot, limiting the sale of alcohol, reducing the size of alcohol containers and removing intoxicated and bullying fans.”

Governor Brown Signs Legislation to Boost Renewable Energy For Sale Lease Back by Owner ADVERTISING APPROVAL Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. signed SBX1 2 Tuesday, which requires one-third of the state’s electricity to come from renewable sources. The legislation increases California’s current 20 percent renewable portfolio standard target in 2010 to a 33 percent renewable portfo-

lio standard by December 31, 2020. “This bill will bring many important benefits to California, including stimulating investment in green technologies in the state, creating tens of thousands of new jobs, improving local air quality, promoting energy independence, and

reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” said Brown in his signing message. “While reaching a 33 percent renewable portfolio standard will be an important milestone, it is really just a starting point - a floor, not a ceiling,” Brown continued in the message. “Our state has

TOTAL BALANCE:

Assemblymember Portantino’s Bill Banning “Open Carry” of Handguns Passes Key Committee Assemblymember Anthony Portantino’s legislation to repeal the “open carry” loophole in state law moved a step closer today when the Assembly Public Safety Committee voted to approve Portantino’s AB 144. Portantino’s bill makes it illegal to carry an unloaded handgun in any public place or street. Law enforcement personnel are exempt as are hunters and others carrying unloaded weapons under specified licensed circumstances. “This is a sensible gun ban that law enforcement

asked me to carry to make our streets and communities safer,” explained Assemblymember Portantino (D- La Cañada Flintridge). “I think most Californians would agree that they don’t want people walking around in parks or in coffee shops with a gun strapped to their hip. Whether it’s loaded or not, it creates some very real public safety issues.” Despite being passed by both houses in the legislature, similar legislation failed to reach the Governor’s desk last year due to a large number of con-

troversial bills on file at the end of session. This means that Californians may walk into a grocery store carrying an unloaded weapon on one hip and the bullets on the other. After seeing a rise in these types of needless public displays, law enforcement officials sought the ban on this open display of firearms. Portantino took up the cause and has worked with law enforcement to re-introduce the “open carry” ban. The measure is supported by the California Police Chiefs Association and PORAC – rank and file police officers.

Representatives from both groups testified at today’s hearing. The Los Angeles city council recently voted to support AB 144 and asked the L.A. City Attorney to look into writing a similar law banning open carry handguns in Los Angeles. California is one of many states that allow socalled “open carry” which gives gun owners the right to display weapons, though in California those guns must be unloaded. Carrying loaded firearms in public is already against the law in California.

In wake of the severe beating at Dodger Stadium last week and subsequent calls for increased security, Los Angeles County Mayor Michael D. Antonovich expressed concern over Dodger plans to provide half-price alcoholic beverages on upcoming “throwback” days on April 21, May 4, June 15, June 22, August 10 and August 31. “To restore the public trust, tighter controls -- not half-price sales on alcohol -need to be implemented,” Antonovich said. “After

the tragic beating of Bryan Stow, the Dodgers need to have a zero-tolerance policy on those under the influence in and outside the stadium.” Monday, at a press conference at Dodger Stadium, Antonovich said the Dodgers were a day-late and a dollar-short in promising to adopt new security measures and called for: •employing additional security personnel •enhancing lighting in the parking lot •reducing the size of alco-

hol containers •removing intoxicated and bullying fans •providing hand stamps for those who have already purchased alcohol. A press release issued by the Dodgers on February 2, 2011 announced that the players will wear “throwback” uniforms in the upcoming games and that half-price food and drink, including alcoholic beverages, will also be offered.

Sierra Madre’s Mater Dolorosa and Meditation Gardens -Open to the Public on Good Friday, April 22 The grounds of Sierra Madre’s Mater Dolorosa Catholic Retreat Center will be open to the public at two times on Good Friday, April 22. From 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. the gardens and grounds will be available for private reflection and prayer. At noon the gates will be closed. Later, at 4:30 until dusk, Passionist clergy, staff, board members, and volunteers will direct public devotions and prayer of the Stations of the Cross, according to Fr. Patrick J. Brennan, C.P., Retreat Director, and Elizabeth Velarde, Administrator. Over the years, this once a year, public event has grown to draw up to 2,500 visitors of all ages to this, one of the largest pri-

vately held parcels of property in the community. Many say that just driving through the Mater Dolorosa gates, one can feel that the space here is sacred ground and the perfect place for quiet reflection. The gates at the northern end of Sunnyside Avenue open wide to reveal a long avenue of overarching trees flanked by extensive open meadows. The outdoor Stations of the Cross were constructed over 50 years ago by a former Sierra Madre mayor, Bill Schiltz, whose son was a member of the Passionist religious order here. The Catholic tradition calls out fourteen different points in this journey to Christ’s crucifixion, naming it the “Stations of

the Cross”. These stations are set into the densely treed hillside, and one travels approximately the same distance walked by Jesus on the road to Calvary. The terrain is moderately steep, so wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring a jacket against the evening chill, a flashlight, as there is minimal night lighting, and an umbrella. Plan to begin your visit in the chapel where a short history and reflection will be offered to each group of about 40. Mater Dolorosa Passionist Retreat Center 700 N.

RUN™ Project is a nationwide effort to enhance and revitalize dog parks in 30 cities across the U.S. and Canada. This year the dog park in Arcadia has been chosen to be a part of the program. Last year, volunteers spent more than 1,500 man hours improving parks in their communities. So, roll up your sleeves and come join us this year! ROOM TO RUN™ projects will vary by location, but park projects may include painting fences, providing benches, picking up trash and landscaping. In an effort to focus on

enhancements and for the safety of the dogs, pet owners may want to consider leaving their four-legged pals at home during the enhancements and bring them to the park following the event. Arcadia Dog Park (Eisenhower Park) located on the corner of Colorado Boulevard and Second Avenue Local community of dog owners (and lovers!) and The Nutro Company & the City of Arcadia’s Recreation and Community Services Department May 7, 2011Check in begins at 8am, event is from 9am to 12p.m.

Altadena Stables – 90 Years of Progress

A 1921 advertising brochure states: “The Altadena Riding Academy has attained the highest degree of perfection in teaching the equestrian art and in the care of horses. We teach you to develop a secure, firm seat, light hands and to learn to ride gracefully with ease and confidence. We eliminate fear and apprehension. You learn correctly and quickly. Your lessons are a pleasure.” 90 years later Altadena Stables still provide a fun and effective riding experience and still in the same location, adjacent to the Angeles Forest trails. Staff is professional,

and safety is their “number one priority.” The horses are selected to meet the requirements of all riders from the novice to the professional, some very quiet and some nicely spirited, and we offer instruction in either English or Western disciplines. The Stables provide large box stalls with shavings and the finest quality hay for boarders and their lesson mounts. Two families of experienced caretakers are in residence, so the horses are monitored 24/7. A large lighted arena now has special footing for your horse’s protection. An electric “hot

walker” provides extra exercise to keep your horse in shape, and Altadena Stables offers excellent veterinary and blacksmith service. There is an adjoining track suitable for driving jog carts or buggies as well as being an extra place to ride. If your horse or you need a little schooling the stables are fortunate to have two excellent trainers and instructors who each have more than 30 years of experience. During the year they offer several Clinics as well as a number of 4 or 5 full or ½ day Camp sessions. Many of their riders and horses have gone on to win important awards at Horse Shows throughout California A popular feature has been Altadena Stables’ Ladies Group on Tuesday mornings from 9-11:30, offering a group rate as well as good cheer. For the younger set (5-18 yrs.) the Summer Camp activities emphasize riding skills but campers will also groom, saddle, bathe, and be involved in many other horse activities and actually be assigned an equine buddy to care for during the week. For information visit their website ataltadenastables.blogspot.com or call the Stables for an appointment at (626) 797-2012.

Camp Shi’ini focuces on Native American Folklore

For 64 years, Camp Shi’ini provides active and entertaining summer activities for boys and girls. Teaching campers about Native American folklore through interactive and action-packed activities in one of the few remaining primitive areas in the greater Pasadena area, the camp runs five weeks each summer. Shi’ini, pronounced “Shee-nee,” is a Navajo word meaning “Summer People.” Daily events include: horseback riding, fishing, canoeing, archery, bear hunting

(not real bears), athletics, hiking, games, crafts, swimming, and an extraordinary monthlong treasure hunt adventure. While at camp, children are broken into age appropriate groups of 12 campers (each group has 2 counselors, meaning a 6:1 ratio which as one of the best in SGV.) Each group functions as a separate unit throughout the day. Due to Camp Shi’ini’s limited number of campers, a wide variety of activities can be offered with individual supervision, including

Indian lore, cookouts, nature hikes, and unique games and sports. Senior and junior counselors are assigned to each group. Senior counselors are hired on the basis of: ideals, college records, maturity, experience, occupation, driving records, and the ability to understand children. Junior counselors are hired on the basis of: leadership, character, attentiveness, dependability, and overall experience working with kids. Counselors pick up campers from their homes in new, seat-belt equipped vans each morning and returned home between 3:50-4:40 PM. (Each driver undergoes extensive safe-driver training and must earn a CA Commercial Class B License.) Arroyo Seco Park (located on Stoney Drive in South Pasadena) affords the perfect atmosphere for Camp Shi’ini’s activities.

Continued from page 1 • Don’t carry more cash than you actually need and don’t flash large sums of money at restaurants, bars, retail stores or banks. You never know who is watching. Don’t carry credit cards if you aren’t planning to use them. • Walk on the side of the street facing oncoming traffic. This will prevent a car from “sneaking” up on you. • Be aware of locations and situations that would make you vulnerable to crime, such

as alleyways and dark parking lots. • If you carry a purse, carry it securely between your arm and your body. Although a purse snatcher’s intent is to steal the purse, your personal safety may depend on not clinging to it. • Do not make yourself an obvious target. When practical, avoid wearing expensive, noticeable clothing or jewelry if you are going to be on the street.

West Huntington regarding a subject being detained for theft. The officer determined the subject had used a receipt from a previous purchase and returned to the business, where he selected the same items again.

He was arrested and charged with burglary. Possession of a Controlled Substance / Warrants - Suspect Arrested On April 1 at 2:19 p.m., an officer stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation in the 600 block of West Huntington.

treatment. The driver was arrested. Burglary On April 2 at 10:49 a.m., an officer was dispatched to a residence in the 1000 block of East Lemon. The residence was being fumigated and workers noticed some of the tent pins holding the tent shut had been removed. They peeked in and saw the doggie door had been kicked in and they called police. The residents are in the process of moving and many of their belongings had already been packed. A responsible party eventually responded to the location. Investigation continuing.

His girlfriend and her sister feared for their safety and ran out of the location and called the police. When officers arrived, the male suspect refused to cooperate and made suicidal comments. He barricaded himself inside the residence. Officers contained the location and the Foothill Special Enforcement Team (FSET) was activated. An arrest warrant was obtained for the male suspect regarding the incident with his girlfriend. After several hours of negotiations, FSET personnel deployed chemical agents into the residence. The suspect then surrendered without further incident. He was taken to a hospital and held for a 72-hour mental evaluation, pending criminal charges.

El Monte Man Arrested for Creating Military Unit Continued from page 1

-Photo courtesy of FBI/DCIS

nounced. Yupeng Deng, aka David Deng, was arrested this morning by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies on a felony complaint for arrest warrant filed Monday by the District Attorney’s office, said Deputy District Attorney Richard Ceballos. The 51-year-old El Monte resident is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday at Pomona Superior Court, Department N. He is being held on $500,000 bail. Deng allegedly gave himself the title of “Supreme Commander” of an

unauthorized military unit, the U.S. Army/Military Special Forces Reserve unit (“MSFR”). Deng allegedly created the phony unit in October 2008 and recruited other Chinese nationals, telling them that belonging to the bogus unit was a path to U.S. citizenship. He allegedly charged each recruit initiation fees ranging from $300 to $450 with renewal fees set at $120 each year. Recruits allegedly could increase their rank in the “MSFR” by making cash donations to the defendant, Ceballos said.

Deng allegedly provided each recruit with phony U.S. Army uniforms, fake documents and fraudulent military ID cards. The recruits were also instructed to report to the defendant’s office in Temple City, decorated to look like an official U.S. military recruiting center, to undergo military training and indoctrination. These recruits even marched in a parade in Monterey Park and took a tour of the USS Midway museum in San Diego all while dressed in uniform. Special Agents with the FBI and the Defense Criminal Investigative Service jointly investigated the case and presented it to the D.A.’s office. Deng is charged in case No. KA093862 with 13 counts of theft by false pretenses, manufacturing deceptive government documents and counterfeit of an official government seal. If convicted as charged, he faces up to eight years, four months in state prison. In a separate case, Deng was charged on April 6 with one count of possession of child pornography stemming from a search warrant executed at his home. Authorities investigating the document case allegedly discovered child pornography on his home computer. He is scheduled to be arraigned in that case -- KA093837 – on April 18 in Pomona Superior Court, Department N. If convicted in that case, he faces up to three years state prison.
