ierra Madre residents will get the chance to ask questions and share their opinions about the city’s water operations and potential rate increase rates at a special City Council Meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 19 at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall. While there will be additional opportunities to comment, “the Oct. 19 meeting is being held at an important juncture in the City Council’s deliberation process” according to a city mailer. City officials launched an “education and public outreach program” this summer after it opted to table a proposed water rate hike that would have raised rates between about 33 percent and 37.5 percent over five years. A total of 1,719 valid protests were received against the proposed rate hike, which is 129 short of the 1,848 needed for a majority to defeat the proposal. However, council members said the number of protests received was a reason re-examine the proposal and increase dialogue with water customers.The Oct. 19 City Council meeting will be held at 232 W. Sierra Madre Boulevard.

ful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish.” The biker pulled over, thought a bit and said, “Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can ride over anytime I want.” God replied, “Your request is materialistic; think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking, the supports required reaching the bottom of the Pacific and the concrete and steel it would take! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of something that could possibly help mankind.” The biker thought about it for a long time. Finally he said, “God, I wish that I, and all men, could understand woman: I want to know how she feels inside, what she’s thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she means when she says nothing’s wrong, why she snaps and complains when I try to help, and how I can make a woman truly happy.” God replied, “You want two lanes or four on that bridge?”

oday’s information explosion is making computer-aholics out of many computer users. People are spending increasing amounts of time interacting with information technology. More and more people are being drawn to the internet sending and receiving e-mail, visiting social networking sites, viewing current news or just surfing the Web to satisfy their curiosity. Sociologists are concerned that the potential for addiction is increasing as the time set aside for socializing personally with family members and other interests is rapidly decreasing. One day not long ago my computer crashed and would not turn on! My first anxious reaction was the thought of the one hundred dollar an hour home computer service call. Then there was the traumatic effect on my daily routine, as I had to wait until the next day for the computer technician to arrive. The one-day interval waiting for the service person to arrive was my longest day in

history. I could not read my electronic newspaper, check stock market activity, conduct banking needs nor was I able to send and receive daily e-mails. Important personal information was no longer in my memory, instead it was now locked up somewhere in the computer universe. As the trauma of the day endlessly drug on, I kept wondering what to do to pass the time. The next day, the arrival of the computer technician brought even more anxiety. His revelation after the one hundred dollar an hour computer evaluation, was that my computer must go to the computer hospital for further analysis. The financial anxiety and the absence of my computer for possibly a week had now become even more traumatic. It was evident that the computer had taken over my life. It was like having a second wife, as I had become so dependant upon my electronic information assistant. Now, well into the third day of waiting, I received a most pleasing repair report. The computer

tech’s inspection revealed that the problem was the computer memory chip. His search of their sales records revealed that six years prior, when I purchased my Apple computer that I had updated the memory chip and that it was covered with a lifetime user warranty, therefore the repair service was free. I learned a great lesson from this experience. Personal communication with family, and friends and the need to set aside quiet time to enjoy the beauty of this wonderful world around us must be given top priority for our free time. The computer and the Internet are great assets to enjoy ... but they should not dictate our lives. It was so encouraging to find that there are still very honest repair people that demonstrate that old fashion caring integrity. The name of this most respected computer company is Dino Computer Sales & Service, located at 2091 E. Colorado, Pasadena, Ca. 91107, 626-795-6674. Oh yes, and that incredibly competent repair technician’s name is STEVE.

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor: During nearly three years out-of-network with Anthem Blue Cross, Methodist Hospital has worked diligently to reestablish a contract. With the efforts of local Anthem CEO Leslie Margolin to bring Wellpoint’s contract negotiators to the table, Methodist and Anthem Blue Cross nearly finalized rates for a new agreement earlier this year. Wellpoint/Anthem then threw up a new roadblock. Anthem has refused to pay tens of millions of dollars in patient benefits for care we provided since we’ve been out-of-network. Anthem then conditioned a new contract based on Methodist Hospital dropping this dispute over patient benefits. According to the LA Times, Wellpoint “told Margolin that her services were no longer needed” in July after rejecting her reform efforts. Methodist Hospital has since been unable to resolve the claim dispute, and Anthem continues to keep us out of its network. While Methodist Hospital has been out-of-net-

work with Anthem, Anthem has improperly paid unreasonably low patient benefits in its attempt to shift the costs of the care to patients. We believe that Anthem’s method for calculating the patient benefits and not covering some hospital charges is illegal. Rather than attempting to collect hospital charges from the patients, Methodist Hospital has filed a lawsuit seeking to recover such payments from Anthem. Our efforts with Anthem began in 2006 and 2007 when we tried to negotiate a new contract. We made our best effort, extending the old contract a full year beyond its renewal date with no rate increase. Anthem responded with threats to lock us out of its network for a minimum of two years. The Department of Managed Health Care finally ordered Anthem to “stop unfair negotiating practices” and issued a separate ruling protecting patient access at Methodist Hospital. While Methodist Hospital went without a rate increase for two years, Anthem imposed

substantial premium increases on many customers during that same period. Negotiations never progressed, and the contract terminated in January 2008. I want to remind you that Methodist Hospital is contracted with every other major insurance carrier except Anthem. Our employees have been satisfied with the HMO and self-funded PPO Blue Shield benefit plans that we switched to after our contract with Anthem ended in 2008. We have heard from other employers that they have switched their insurance coverage from Anthem or are offering additional health plan choices. Employers are also working with Methodist Hospital to settle claims, and some may contract directly with Methodist Hospital for in-network patient access to care. With or without Anthem’s support, we will continue to honor our commitment to provide quality care to this community. Sincerely, Dennis M. Lee President and CEO

Everyone at MAFA is delighted and grateful. I wanted to thank you also, Susan, for the nice piece in September announcing and describing the Monrovia Community Coordinating Council. The MCCC gained several new members as a result, as well

as several other inquiries about the Council.

Trainer tips The Waistline and Wallet Connection BY LYNDA LINFORTH

A

s news of our roller coaster economy keeps us equally fascinated and confused, a new link to our waistlines and our wallets has been discovered. There are so many health benefits to keeping our weight under control but if we were told that it could actually save us money, would we be more motivated to do so? A new study from George Washington University reports that being over-weight or obese can actually cost us extra money. In a study that compared people who were considered to be at their healthy weights to those who were considered clinically obese, researchers found that on average, being obese cost men $2,600 and women a staggering $4,800 more dollars per year compared to their thinner counterparts. Just being over-weight cost men $432 and women $524.

One of the largest costs is long term health care. Obesity has been linked to diabetes, heart disease, some cancers and a myriad of other health threatening symptoms. Obese people tend to fall more, have hormone and bone density issues and tend to strain muscles more easily, therefore, requiring more medical attention. In the work place, the study showed that obese people take more sick days and that thinner women earned more money than obese women. Interestingly, there was no such salary disparity between obese and thinner men. In general, obese people tend to require more ‘office support’ such as back supports, special chairs and foot rests and companies, afraid of law suits, often pander to these needs, hiking up business costs and straining an already fragile employment situation. The study also showed that this test group spent more money on gasoline as not only did they walk

less, more load in the car uses more fuel. This could be expanded to extra wear and tear on a car and the costs that accumulate. Travel, one aspect that was not addressed in the afore mentioned study, is also more expensive for the obese. Many airlines are requiring people to purchase an extra seat if they do not fit comfortably in one seat, doubling travel costs. Let’s save money by eating well, exercising and losing weight!

2nd Annual Pasadena Wine Festival Draws Thousands to Arboretum

H

ot weather, long lines for wine and food didn’t seem to deter thousands of people from enjoying the second annual Pasadena Wine Festival assisted by Pasadena Entertainment and Red White and Bluezz jazz club in Pasadena. The annual extravaganza was a little different this year with the addition of the ever-growing popularity of the food trucks ( loving known as Roach Coaches) and in particular the Grilled Cheese Truck which has garned a great deal of attention in the Los Angels area in

recent months. Some guests waited over two hours, however, for a sample of their wares and others simply left as the wait was far too long during the mid day heat. However, the majority of the attendees seemsed to enjoy the Arboretum’s natural beauty and savor a fine wine at the same time. Organizers said that this year’s event was the best yet and plan on even more music and other entertainment for next year’s soiree.

In Addition to the long lines for wines and some beers, there was plenty of time to enjoy the Hot Air Baloon or any number of games including badmington at the one day festival. - Photos by Terry Miller

Sizzling Drama in Cigar Factory Offers Pulitzer Winner “Anna In The Tropics” at Sierra Madre Playhouse BY FRAN SYVERSON

I

t’s 1929, and we’re in a Cuban/American cigar factory in a small town outside Tampa, Florida. Passions are running high. Eliades, Santiago and Cheche are cheering and betting wildly on a nearby cockfight.

With more ladylike passions, Marita, Conchita and Ofelia await with unbridled excitement the arrival of their new Lector. Their old Lector was beloved and good enough in his day. But he was old, and the romance in his reading had faded with time. In cigar factories,

workers hired a Lector to help pass the hours as they rolled cigars by hand. As he read, new worlds opened to them. It helped if his voice was melodic, especially when he chose romantic novels. And it was mandatory that he read not only with his voice, but also his heart. Now Marita, Ofelia and Conchita can scarcely contain themselves, for this is the day Juan Julian is to come. Will he be handsome? Will his reading touch them? Their menfolk are less enchanted, some even suggesting that a Lector is not needed, that he distracts the workers.

If “Anna in the Tropics” is about anything, it’s about passions. They run the gamut—jealousy, love, scorn, pride, rage, frustration…. It’s a strong plot, afire with emotions. And the actors on the Sierra Madre Playhouse stage have been flawlessly chosen for each of their roles. Juan Julio arrives when tall, handsome, appealing Eric Neil Gutierrez strides onstage. He has

chosen “Anna Karenina” as the book he’ll read. Tolstoy’s tumultuous drama sparks unexpected new passions among the workers, and we’re privileged to watch the dramas unfold. As Merela, Vanessa Marquez is ever the romantic, a gentle soul who seems to live in the dreamy world she creates for herself. Claudia Vazquez, by contrast, evokes an earthy, steamy Conchita, whether relating to her hapless husband Palomo (Serafin Falcon) or the Lector. Minerva Garcia as Ofelia is the matriarch of the family, and also of the cigar factory, and lets her authority be known. All three women’s facial expressions convey every nuance of their feelings. Santiago’s moods ranging from belligerent macho to tender are well-captured by Gerry Del Sol. Brash Eliades and smoldering Cheche are given definition by William Franco Vasquez and Arturo Medina, respectively. Vasquez and April Ibarra make double contributions, he as Peppino and she as not only Manola, but also the assistant director. In a couple of scenes, Santiago and Cheche hover in shadows just offstage, spying on the central action—don’t miss their dramatic glowerings! With all these seething undertones, isn’t it surprising that “Anna” offers comedic touches that bring gales of laughter? But it does, both as relief from tenser moments and for just plain fun. Corky Dominguez brings his passion for “Anna in the Tropics,” Nilo Cruz’s 2003 Pulitzerprize winner, to his Playhouse directorial debut. In the playbill foreword, Dominguez likens the entrance of the Lector “to that of a hurricane with its anticipation, force, and devastation.” An apt foreboding…. Plaudits to Ed Haynes for his set design. The stark wooden walls, shutters, and beams are an authentic background for the cigar factory with its barrels, tables and chairs, and the Lector’s platform. The Playhouse programme features a description of the stage construction, which was

in the capable hands of Don Bergmann, assisted by Ward Calaway and John Dimitri. Authentic cigar paraphernalia is provided by Oscar Mursuli from his Temple City firm. Special mention should go to Megan Gurdine for the ‘20s costume designs. Complementing the ladies’ retro clothing were their wonderful wigs, for which Christine Stiencamp can claim credit. And it’s so definitive of the era to see the men wearing hats! Producers Christine Helppie Soldate and Estelle Campbell wear two hats, with Soldate designing the program and Campbell the poster art, along with Rick Taylor. Eugene J. Hutchins is stage manager. Stephanette Isabel Smith designed the lighting, and Barry Schwam the sound. The background music unobtrusively lends atmospheric color. Deborah Ross-Sullivan is dialect coach. Light tech is Nathan Lancaster, and sound tech is Steve Shaw. Claudia Vazquez handled social media contacts, Donald Songster production photography, and Philip Sokoloff publicity. This being a drama rife with Latin passions, it should come as no surprise that we recommend “Anna” for mature audiences, with its explicit sexuality and more subtle, but still unmistakable, innuendos. “Anna in the Tropics” will continue at the Sierra Madre Playhouse weekends through Nov. 13. Curtain time is 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2:30 p.m. for Sunday matinees. Admission is $20 general, $17 for seniors (65+) and students (13-17), and $12 for children 12 and under. The Sierra Madre Playhouse is located at 87 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre. City lots offer free parking. Pre- or post-theater dining at local restaurants on Baldwin Avenue and Sierra Madre Boulevard can enhance your theater-going experience.

Nicholas is being held on $500,000 bail and is expected to be arraigned on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2010, at 9:00 a.m. at the North Justice Center, Fullerton. The department is to be determined. Linda Fernandez, age 29 from Monrovia, is charged with four felony counts of accessory after the fact and faces a maximum sentence of three years and eight months in state

prison if convicted. She is being held on $500,000 bail and is expected to be arraigned tomorrow, Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2010, at 9:00 a.m. at the North Justice Center, Fullerton. The department is to be determined. Abraham Fernandez has these two sons with his former live-in girlfriend, from whom he is estranged. Approximately one year ago, Abraham Fernandez’s former girlfriend moved to Anaheim from Texas with the two boys. At approximately 7:45 p.m. on October7, 2010, the two victims were in an alley with their mother near their apartment. Abraham Fernandez and hisfather Louis Fernandez are accused of driving into the alley in a silver Dodge Caravan and quickly stoppingthe car. Louis Fernandez, who had been driving, is accused of getting out of the vehicle and grabbing one of the children who was standing next to his mother. Louis Fernandez is accused of putting the victim in the back of the van using the sliding side door. Abraham Fernandez is accused of then getting out of the van and taking the other child from his screaming mother’s arms. The defendants are accused of getting back into the vehicle and speeding in reverse out of the alley as they fled the scene. Witnesses called 911 and the Anaheim Police Department responded to the scene. An AMBER Alert was immediately issued for the silver van. After the kidnapping, the defendants are accused of driving to Monrovia to hide at a relative’s home. Nicholas and his wife Linda Fernandez, Abraham Fernandez’s cousin, are accused of harboring the defendants at their Monrovia home knowing that the children had been illegally abduct-

ed and were being sought by police. Nicholas is also accused of assisting in the child abduction by renting the van for Abraham and Louis Fernandez to use in the kidnapping. Early on the morning of Oct. 8, 2010, Nicholas is accused of returning the rented van to Ontario InternationalAirport. Anaheim police officers contacted Nicholas that day after receiving information that the defendants and victims may be at his Monrovia home. Officers learned that the van had been returned and was no longer being used by the defendants. Nicholas was arrested at his home on Oct. 10, 2010, for his role in the kidnapping. Linda Fernandez was arrested Oct. 11, 2010, at the home she shared with Nicholas for assisting the defendants after the abduction. A $500,000 arrest warrant was issued today, Oct. 12, 2010, for Abraham and Louis Fernan-

Christian Perry Dances with the Stars of Pasadena Senior Center's 50th Zest-filled Celebration The Pasadena Senior Center celebrated 50 Years of serving the greater Pasadena community by honoring Maggie Jagels and others at the home of Marilyn and Jud Roberts Sunday night. The Grande affair was dubbed Zest and hosted by Huell Howser of KCET.

Christian Perry, choreographer of Dancing with the Stars, gave a stunning jitterbug performance with his partner prior to the dinner. During his keynote address, Howser quipped that Akila Gibbs, Executive Director of the Pasadena Senior Center pigeonholed

Howser at El Portal, where Abel Ramirez was hosting a Tequila tasting a few months back. Ramirez wanted Howser to meet Akila. It was here that Akila Gibbs asked Howser to host the Zest party for the Senior Center’s 50th Anniversay party. Amazingly enough,

Howser agreed, and the rest is history. Pasadena Senior Center offers a wide variety of activities year round for Pasadena Seniors. The honoree of the evening Maggie Jagels, 86, is a lifelong friend of the Senior Center and beloved area philanthropist.

Obituary Notices Caltech Professor Emeritus Thad Vreeland,85 Thad Vreeland Jr., emeritus professor of materials science at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), passed away August 9 in San Gabriel, California. He was 85 years old. In the 1960s and ‘70s, Fultz says, Vreeland performed challenging experiments to measure how fast dislocations move in metal crystals; in the ‘80s, he studied how defects in thin layers of semiconductor materials are generated by ion bombardment or stresses. Vreeland’s work in the 1990s included studies of how powders can be consolidated into bulk materials by subjecting them to strong mechanical shocks. “Thad Vreeland took pride in laboratory technique and had both skill

and style in building his own equipment, often frugally,” says Fultz. “With the University of Pennsylvania’s David Pope—then a Caltech graduate student—Vreeland designed and built a device for subjecting large crystals to pulsed torsional loads, and he built several x-ray diffractometers of unique design. Thad Vreeland’s shock wave consolidation facility used the barrel of a field gun that he reinforced for even higher velocities.” Thad was a great scientist and he interacted well with various researchers and engineers across campus,” says Ares Rosakis, the Theodore von Kármán Professor of Aeronautics, professor of mechanical engineering, and chair of the Division

of Engineering and Applied Science, “particularly with the solid mechanics group associated both with aeronautics and mechanical engineering.” Vreeland was born in 1924 and was a lifelong member of the Caltech community, receiving his BS in 1949, his MS in 1950, and his PhD in 1952. He joined the Caltech faculty in 1954 as an assistant professor of mechanical engineering. Vreeland was a professor of materials science from 1968 until his retirement in 1991, whereupon he was named emeritus professor. In addition to Mary, Vreeland is survived by his children—Michael, Terry, and Janet—and two grandchildren, Theresa and Johanna.

Art Battaglia Remembered

Last week a plaque was dedicated in the main hall at Monrovia High School. The plaque honored Art Battaglia who worked at the school for 25 years. His title was

Members of the Battalia family gather around the plaque dedicted to their loved one. “Campus Aide,” but he was a great deal more than that.

that last thing was Art’s greatest talent; reaching those students who need-

ed a giding hand, or a gentle shove in the correct direction. One of the people Art worked with at the high school commented that it was fitting that the plaque which reads in part:In appreciation of 25 years of excellanet service and loving contributions... His energy & passion for life inspired, encoured and & enriched our...His spirit is forever celebrated by the live he touched at Monrovia High School” was placed on one of the pillars in the lobby of the schools auditorium. “It looks like Art is one of the main supports of the school, said Duke Freyermuth who was a councilor at the school when Battaglia worked there.

The Social Whirl

Anna in the Tropics Opens at Sierra Madre Playhouse Oct. 8 Anna in the Tropics is set in a Cuban-American cigar factory in 1929. The local is Ybor City, a small town adjacent to Tampa, Florida. In those days, cigars were rolled by hand. Then, as now, a Cuban seed hand-rolled cigar is a sought-after sensual delight. The factory employs a lector to educate and entertain workers as they engage day after day in their repetitive tasks. The lector is a man with a wonderful speaking voice who reads to the workers from books, making their labor bearable. The factory’s old lector has died, so a new one is hired to take his place. The new man is Juan Julian, young, handsome and silken voiced. The book he has cho-

sen to read is Leo Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina.” The Russian classic novel deals with, among its many concerns, a great romance, passion and a married woman’s succumbing to illicit desires. Julian’s skilled, soulful delivery of the narrative ignites certain feelings and emotions in the female workers. Some of the men become jealous. Steamy southern heat, lust, the sensuality of fine tobacco – these are the ingredients for the fierce tropical storm that is surely brewing. Playwright Nilo Cruz won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for this play. His other works include “Two Sisters and a Piano,” “Lorca in a Green Dress,” “Night Train to Bolina,”

“A Bicycle Country,” and “Dancing on Her Knees. ”WHO: Written by Nilo Cruz directed by Corky Dominguez, produced by Estelle Campbell and Christine Soldate for Sierra Madre Playhouse. WHERE: Sierra Madre Playhouse, 87 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre, CA 91024. Ample free parking behind theatre. WHEN: October 8-November 13, 2010. Friday and Saturday, 8 p.m.; Sunday, 2:30 p.m. ADMISSION: $20 seniors (65+), students (13-17), children 12 and under, $12. RESERVATIONS: (626) 355-4318.

MHS All-Class Reunion Raises Funds for Band Trip to Carnegie Hall On Sunday, October 10th, there was a Monrovia High School all-class reunion at Santa Anita Park. More than one hundred people from several classes turned out to catch up with their old friends, with the class of ’78 having the most in attendance. One of the highlights of the day was the appearance of the MHS Wildcat Marching Band. The band has been invited to perform at Carnegie Hall in

2012, and was appearing at the reunion as a fundraiser, with half the money from the 50/50 raffle that took place at the reunion to be donated to the Band. To the band’s good fortune, the winner of the 50/50 raffle was Tom Radu. Radu (Class of ’77) was a member of the Marching Band during all four years of high school, and he elected to give his winnings to the band, doubling their take for the day.

There will be another All-Class Reunion on April 3rd, 2011. The April reunion will again feature the band, and be a fundraiser for their Carnegie Hall trip. There will be raffles, drawings, prizes and more, including live thoroughbred racing. For more information about that reunion, visit www.MHSAllClassReunion.info. To make a donation to the Band’s Carnegie Hall Fund, call

USC Dental Clinic helps kids Continued from page 1

in the field and students in their last year of dental school. The 99 low-income children received much-needed dental care at no cost through this remakable Foothill Unity Center collaboration Here’s how it happened: When the University of Southern California School of Dentistry conducted free screenings at Foothill Unity Center’s 2009 annual Back to School event at Santa Anita race track. USC Doctors found 87% of the children had visible decay. 15% had urgent care conditions that included abscesses and accompanying pain. Dental problems are the primary reason children miss school. Foothill Unity Center, the USC Mobile Dental Clinic team, and the Monrovia Unified School District worked together to help find a partial solution. On October 9-15, the USC team presented a weeklong mobile clinic for local low-income families whose children had serious dental conditions. The event, held at Plymouth Elementary School in Monrovia, began Friday and Saturday with care and evalua¬tion for all children including X-rays, cleaning, sealants, and a plan of treat¬ment. Children returned during the week as many times as needed complete the treatments from USC dental students and faculty, supervised by li-

censed pediatric and general dentists. The work was done in a fleet of converted RVs equipped with full dental equipment and furnishings. While the USC Mobile Clinic is a model of organization, its visit to Plymouth Elementary demanded a separate set of complex logistics. They were masterminded by Foothill Unity Center Health Services Director Cathy Klose, RN., in collaboration with Loretta Whitson, Director of Student Support Services for MUSD. Center volunteers were positioned throughout the program area to provide directions, handle sign-ins, and help keep the process running smoothly. An estimated $1,500 to $2,000 worth of free dental services was provided to each child. Much of the amount was covered by donations from the community. “We’re very grateful to our sponsors for making this event possible,” said the Center’s Executive Director, Joan Whitenack. “Key funders of the $51,000 USC Dental Project include the San Marino Women’s Club ($25,000), Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park ($15,000) and a host of individual contributors. The Center still needs help to cover $8,000 in costs. For more information, contact Cathy Klose at 626-359-1777 or cathy@foothillunitycenter.org. The USC School of

Dentistry Mobile Clinic came into being in 1968, serving migrant farm workers in Central and Southern California at clinics set up in school gymnasiums and recreation centers. Early on, it depended on the ingenuity and passion of student volunteers, who devised such innovative methods as using a paint compressor to power air-turbine handpieces to provide service to isolated and underserved populations In 1969, USC alumnus Walter Kiefer, president of Condor Coach Company, donated a coach to the program. It was outfitted for mobile dentistry through a grant from the Doris Duke Foundation. A year later, faculty member Charles Goldstein became advisor to the program he would spearhead for over three decades. In 1971, to meet increased demand for services, dental students from UCLA joined the program To date, the Mobile Clinic has served more than 80,000 children in need. Each year, the program holds more than a dozen week-long clinics in both rural and urban Southern and Central California. It now has five vehicles, including a sterilization van and modern, portable dental equipment. Since 1994 the Mobile Clinic has been a required clinical rotation for all doctoral dental students.

A House-Call Practice Serving the San Gabriel Valley and Beyond

Santa Anita track work is well underway to remove the controversial synthetic Pro Ride track

C

onstruction to replace Santa Anita’s synthetic main track with a natural dirt surface began on Monday and it is anticipated work on the project will continue into early December. Horses are projected to return to training over the one mile oval on Dec. 6, roughly three weeks in advance of Santa Anita’s traditional winter/spring meeting opener on Dec. 26. “This marks the beginning of a very important chapter in our history here at Santa Anita,” said Santa Anita President George Haines. “There is a great deal of anticipation from all corners of the Thoroughbred industry and we’re very excited to get this project underway and to return to live racing.” Santa Anita was required by mandate from the California Horse Racing Board (CHRB) to install a synthetic main track in the fall of 2007. In order to remain in compliance with CHRB regulations, Santa Anita recently petitioned the CHRB to issue a waiver to this mandate. Haines noted that in order for the waiver to be granted, the top layer of the new track surface will

need to undergo a variety of tests which will be overseen by the CHRB. “We are currently working with both the California Thoroughbred Trainers (CTT) and the CHRB, and together, we’re developing a consensus with regard to the composition of the various soils that we’ll be using,” said Haines. MI Developments (MID), Santa Anita’s parent company, has dispatched Ted Malloy, who has been involved with the installation of several tracks around the country and who has been involved in track maintenance for more than 38 years, to oversee the project. “We just started to take the synthetic material off today,” said Malloy on Monday. “We’ve had skip loaders out on the track, piling it up and we’ll start hauling it off tomorrow. We anticipate it’ll take about two weeks to remove all of the synthetic material. “We hope to clear the rocks underneath, which are part of the drainage system, the following week (Oct. 24-30).” Malloy said following the removal of the current drainage system, work will

begin on installing an organic base. “After the rocks are completely removed, the new base material will be applied and we anticipate that will take about two weeks (Oct. 31-Nov. 13). After the base is in place and compacted to proper density, we’ll start to apply the cushion mix, which is what we run on.” Malloy noted that the cushion will be mixed by Vulcan Materials in nearby Irwindale. “The soils will be coming from several different places and Vulcan will make the cushion mix out of a conglomeration of several types of sands and clay, to our specifications. “After the cushion is in place, we will harrow and water it until the material is stabilized and this should take at least one week.” Santa Anita is currently closed for training but is open for simulcast wagering on tracks around the country, including Hollywood Park.
