MUSD will Not be Closing Any Libraries BY TERRY MILLER Contrary to some reports regarding the Monrovia School District on a local blog, there will be no closures of any libraries in the school district and only reduction in operating hours remains a possibility at this point, according to Kris Mariconda of The Monrovia Unified School District. Meanwhile,

MUSD Superintendent Linda Wagner told Beacon Media that while the report by the State Superintendent is no surprise, the district is working diligently to avoid cutbacks. However, with the state budget, it is likely that all school districts in California will

Relay for Life this Weekend in Arcadia BY AMY LEONG It stands before us aching those closest to our hearts. It gathers strength and pride in those who belong to it. And even though it may slowly bring us down, the royalty of the color purple is a reminder of our strength, bringing loved ones, friends, families, and pets closer than ever before – as one entity with one big family, one heart, and one mindset to fight back against it. On June 25-26, American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life will take place at the

Santa Anita Race Track. An entire 24 hours, from 11:00 am to 11:00am, the event will bring together hundreds of families, friends, and survivors to raise awareness of cancer’s impact and the importance to find the cure. With over 45 teams composed of about 5-20, and even 49 members, Relay for Life has grown in numbers, more to spread the American Cancer Society’s message: Celebrate, Remember, Fight

Man Arrested for series of San Gabriel Valley Armed robberies, 9 counts filed by D.A. On Wednesday, June 8, 2011, a Subway Restaurant located in the 200 block of East Live Oak Avenue, Arcadia, was robbed at gunpoint by a lone male suspect. Officers believed that the suspect was possibly responsible for two robberies earlier that afternoon in the City of El Monte, as well as an additional crime in neighboring Temple City. The suspect was tentatively identified through use of departmental resources by Arcadia personnel and a

joint agency investigation was initiated. Through efforts led by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the suspect was ultimately arrested on June 16, 2011. The arrest of this serial robbery suspect is a great example of the cooperative efforts and teamwork demonstrated between law enforcement agencies. The following information is from the LASD and details the arrest and subse-

Monrovia Councilman Clarence Shaw Called to Active Duty Monrovia City Council Member , Clarence Shaw suprised the community at Tuesday’s Council Meeting when he announced that his reserve unit might be activated shortly. The activation would mean that Shaw would not be able to attend council meetings and that he was not sure when he would

be called to active duty. Mayor Mary Ann Lutz said that although the city could appoint someone temporarily to fill in for Shaw, they preferred to honor his service to the country by keeping his position open. “We need to see how we function as a four member council,” Lutz said.

Look for this sign at participating retailers!

Relay for Life this weekend in Arcadia Continued from page 1 raising goal of $100,000, each team has put together numerous fundraisers for the event, including raffling off an iPad 2, gift baskets, cotton candy, jamba juice, and more. 100% of the proceeds will be going to the American Cancer Society and that money has continued to fund new cures, protection, and medicine. As for entertainment, there is a smorgasbord of activities for those of all ages. In the early morning, the event will kick off with Jann Schneider’s Memorial Quitet and a heartwarming story from 17-year old cancer survivor, Monique Salazar. Children

will also be able to participate in a watermelon eating contest, limbo, hula hoop contest, and more. However, this year also brings another exciting event, the first ever Miss Relay Contest. Men of any age will be dressed in a Hawaiian costume and catwalk across the track, while people on the sidelines will put money toward their favorite contestant. The evening will conclude with a luminaria ceremony, slideshow, and movie. Lighting the candles at the luminaria ceremony is a reminder of those touched by cancer. Paper bags are filled with candles that light up the

entire edge of the track, brightening the darkness of the evening with hope. Each bag represents someone who was affected by cancer, to remember loved ones while fighting back in honor. Together, when each participant takes a part in walking the track, it will be a reminder that cancer never sleeps, and that we must work as a team to fight against it. Together, we will celebrate the cures we found, remember our loved ones, and fight back with everything we have for an unforgettable weekend of a lifetime.

Metro Gold Line Improves Frequency of Morning and Afternoon Rush Hour Service

Funded by a grant from the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle).

Thank You for Recycling Your Household Batteries!

Household batteries were banned from disposal in the trash in 2006 because they can contain heavy metals and are corrosive. To ensure that valuable metals from mining are recycled and to ensure protection of public health and safety, it is important to recycle household batteries, both rechargeable and alkaline.

The businesses listed here are committed to helping San Gabriel Valley residents recycle household batteries:

Beginning June 27, Metro will add additional train service on the Metro Gold Line to improve the frequency of trains during both morning and afternoon peak periods to handle continued ridership growth. The added service will allow trains on the line to operate every six minutes during the peak periods from 6 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Metro Gold Line trains presently operate every seven to eight minutes during the peak periods. A total of five, two-car trains will be added to improve the service. The Metro Gold Line is a 19.7-mile light rail line that operates between Pasadena and East Los Angeles and serves Union Station in downtown Los Angeles where patrons can make easy connections to Metro buses and Metro Red/Purple lines as well as Amtrak and Metrolink trains.

May ridership levels on the Metro Gold Line reached 36,623 average weekday boardings, an increase over May 2010 ridership of 32,434. Weekend ridership remains high with over 25,000 boarding passengers using the service on Saturday and nearly 19,000 on Sunday. “With gas prices hovering around $4 a gallon and the summer months ahead, providing this added service on the Metro Gold Line will be welcome relief to our Gold Line passengers,” said Metro CEO Art Leahy. Also beginning Monday, June 27, Metro will improve the frequency of Metro Silver Line buses operating along the Harbor Freeway Transitway. The Metro Silver Line (El Monte-Los AngelesArtesia Transit Center) will operate every 15 minutes during mid-days on weekdays and every 40 minutes on Saturday. In August, riders can enjoy a price break for the pop-

ular Day Pass that will be sold for $5, down from the current price of $6. The Metro Day Pass allows users unlimited travel on all Metro operated buses and trains for the day the pass is purchased. Under the Board approved program, the Metro Day Pass will be lowered as part of a 1-year test to determine whether the price roll back will encourage more commuters to try the Metro system. In addition, Metro TAP cards will begin to be sold on board Metro buses to make it more convenient to customers. Also beginning in August, Metro monthly and weekly passes will be replaced by 7- and 30-day rolling passes – with time beginning the day they are first used rather than on the first day of the week or month. The new rolling passes will be sold every day, so riders can buy them when it’s convenient.

Dear Editor, It was about1:30 am, I left my office in San Marino heading home. Everything in my internal system has been operating at about 15 hours ahead of the clock. (You see, I was on the other side of the Pacific Rim until a week ago). Driving down the Huntington Drive (the main 4-lane Highway cutting through the northern San Gabriel Valley, I could see ahead of me--faintly, 3 cyclist, each speeded on its own lane, enjoying the latenight, ‘wee’ hour morning ride along the quiet, dark, curved, and high-flying avenue. Each with a small flickering bicycle rare lights...appearing on a very remote, least-expected portion of the Huntington Drive. You see, I was fully awake (it felt like mid day to me). And I deliberately slowed slow just to take extra precaution. Then I fully intended to provide ‘cover’, as I was noticing vehicles fast approaching from behind. And also, my curiosity got the best of me, made me wandering: Who the heck could these ‘smart’ people be. Could they be any one I

know, since I know a lot of people in this side of town, and a number of my friends love cycling. Within a matter of seconds, 2 vehicles came from behind, and over took me in a hurry, with full speed forward. Sure they safely passed me from my side, and in no time each of them zipped through me, assuming open road ahead. Right there I was so gratified; felt like a hero, or for that moment--a guardian angel to these 3 cyclists. Then a thought came to my senses, gave me a chill... Whoa! At that instance, any one of those drivers could easily change lane in front of me and slam right behind those ‘SMART but very FOOLISH’ cyclists! Or, even if I weren’t there, only if just 1 of out 10, (or 100, or even 1,000) of the late night drivers, operating way past midnight... What if one of them might had been overworked a little, or had been a little groggy, or maybe... just imagine--under the ‘influence’! As I passed the 3 cyclists, I couldn’t resist but slow down, winded my

right window down, with the most gentle yet admonishing tone: “I know you have the right to the entire roadway, but you may want to consider what could have happened just now...” For that, one of them were polite enough and responded, “Thank you!” I hope so...Perhaps this should help us thinking: Having the ‘right’ make us too callous in risking ourselves, or others’ lives? For all that, I know that may have reduced the chances of blood stains on our streets, a late-night call for the police. Or, prevented another emergency room chaos (or even, heaven forbid--an a unnecessary entry in the mort...). And surely, I took the risk and made my plea. Hopefully that had also helped slow down our fast escalating taxes, as well as insurance premium from creeping upwards any further. Watson Gan Watson@WatsonGan.com

When my Irish cousins, Reg and Eamonn, and I were driving from London to the family farm in County Sligo, Ireland, Reg’s little English Ford was much too heavily weighted with luggage, bicycles and three passengers. As we started to drive from the ferry onto Irish soil, we heard a terrible scraping sound. Our car lurched and stopped. The Irish are not known for their patient natures or cool tempers. All behind us must have been Irish. There arose a cacophony of horns and curses accompanied by rather uncourtly hand and finger gestures, all giving a

clear message to get out of the way. Three burlies walked up to our little car, put their backsides against its, gave a hoist and a heave and pushed us over the hump upon which we had been stuck. Our insulted and assaulted little car limped the rest of the way off and over to the side, well out of everyone’s way. Ireland on an early Sunday morning is not quite like California. You don’t just call the auto club. Our mangled muffler and tailpipe were hanging to the ground but still fastened to the car by one leather strap. Fortunately, I had a typical woman’s purse. Eamonn slid under the car and sawed through that remaining strap with my little two inch all-purpose fold-

ing knife. We were on our way again, albeit very noisily. Eamonn scrunched in his corner of the rear seat with his feet now resting on the muffler and tailpipe. There had been quite a bit of activity and a good deal of time had passed since we left the ferry so we had not driven far when I said, “Reg, the first restroom we come to, I need to stop.” He drove only a few more feet and pulled to the side of the road. I was a little puzzled until he said, “Nature is our restroom. That tree over there is as good as we are likely to find for many a mile.” My first of many opportunities to enjoy the quaintness of rural Ireland! (Little Bit of Ireland c1997)

Chalk One Up for Light Bringer and Pasadena Police coupon needs to be present for the discount

The annual chalk festival brings thousands to enjoy the street art at Paseo Colorado and on Sunday the Pasadena Police sponsored a pre-1974 car show. – Photos by Terry Miller

The annual Father’s Day weekend in Old Pasadena allowed 600 artists to create world’s largest display of chalk art at Pasadena’s Paseo Colorado this past weekend. The 19th annual Pasadena Chalk Festival, which benefits the Light Bringer Project was afforded the distinct honor last year of

world’s largest display of Chalk art by the Guinness Book of World Records. There were a few people who complained of the “ commercialization “ of the festival with a soft drink vendor’s large RV taking up a fair bit of chalk space and the “walking” billboards promoting local housing at the ‘Winsor’.

Jet Blue, one of the main sponsors had actually a smaller footprint this year. “I thought I was going to see a lot of talent, but instead I was bombarded with advertising and free samples of this and that….” Peter O’Malley said. O’Malley, from Santa Barbara, pointed to a similar festival “I Madonnari”

California Philhamonic Kicks off Season at Arboretum

Senior to Senior Computer Tutor

Continued from page 1 immortal songs created in recording studios in a way that could sound the same in live performance, such as classics from the albums Magical Mystery Tour and Revolver. The Fab Four has garnered a reputation as the number one Beatles Tribute band, not only recreating the sound and artistry of the famed group, but their looks and personages, with recreations of the band’s authentic costumes. Cal Phil will also be performing Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, one of the most played classical works in history. After more than 15 highly successful years at this venue, this summer marks the final season of concerts at the Arboretum...and tickets are selling fast. It may be the final chance to enjoy the acclaimed Maestro Victor Vener and Cal Phil at the Arboretum but it is certainly not the last time they will be performing during the summer months; details about their exciting new summer home

for 2012 and beyond will be announced shortly. What’s more, their popular Sunday matinees will continue to take place at the Music Center’s Walt Disney Concert Hall. In its fifteen years of existence, the California Philharmonic has expanded awareness of classical music, increasing the interest and support for great music throughout the region. Along the way, Maestro Vener and Cal Phil have garnered numerous accolades and awards for their unique musical vision. He has founded numerous beloved musical institutions and concert series in Pasadena, including founding Cal Phil, the Pasadena POPS and the Pasadena Chamber Orchestra, as well as establishing music venues in local destinations including the Arboretum, Descanso Gardens and the steps of Pasadena’s City Hall.

With a Beatles meets Beethoven theme and special guests The Fab Four—the ultimate tribute—performing alongside Cal Phil, it is guaranteed to be a sensational show. “We are so fortunate to have phenomenal artists joining us this season beginning with The Fab Four,” said Vener who credits the Beatles with changing pop music forever and Beethoven with changing the world of classical music. “These are history making composers who live on forever through their music. It is a thrill to perform their works in a contemporary and original way.” With ticket going fast, Beethoven & The Beatles is sure to be an audience favorite. The show features classics from the Beatles including

My soul is that of a composer. The trick is to discover the missing pieces of the music and meld the two sides together to create an amazing performance that

the suspect: Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department detectives assigned to the Major Crimes Bureau presented evidence today at the El Monte Superior Courthouse against an El Monte man for a series of armed robberies which occurred over the past several weeks in the San Gabriel Valley. Subsequently, the El Monte branch of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office filed nine counts of Armed Robbery against 32-year old Anselmo Rincon. Sheriff’s Department de-

tectives worked with officers from the Arcadia, Covina and El Monte Police Departments to identify and arrest Rincon for the robberies. Rincon was arrested by Sheriff’s personnel at about 2:30PM on June 16, 2011, at a gas station in the 3200 block of Santa Anita Avenue, El Monte, for Robbery and is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail. A preliminary hearing will be held at a future date at the Pomona Superior Courthouse. Rincon used a replica firearm to commit the robber-

ies, which were conducted primarily at Subway restaurants and dry cleaning stores. The replica firearm Rincon used in the robberies was found in the car he used at the time of his arrest. “This collaborative effort to arrest Rincon has taken a dangerous criminal off the streets of our communities,” said Sheriff’s Lieutenant Chris Brackpool. “His robberies were becoming more frequent in recent days and the danger he presented was escalating.”

Volunteer Adina Mesa BY RUTH LONGORIA KINGSLAND The commandment to “love thy neighbor” wasn’t lost on Adina Mesa. The 84-year-old Monrovia resident spends almost all her spare time helping out in any way she can at neighboring Duarte’s senior center. She was recognized last Friday night as the Duarte Senior Center Volunteer of the Year at the center’s annual dinner. The center also nominated Mesa as Duarte’s honoree for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisor’s Outstanding Older American Award. She received that award at a recognition luncheon last month in Los Angeles. “Adina is amazing, she’s always here, doing everything,” said Peggy Diamond, director of the Duarte Senior Center. From folding napkins, making party favors and setting up tables to cleaning up after events, cooking and making sandwiches, Mesa has a servant heart to do it all, according to staff at the center. Diamond talked of Mesa’s dedication to her volunteerism. “She walks all the way from her home in Monrovia, whenever she’s needed at the center. It’s not so much of a walk down the hill, but when she’s done helping out, she walks back up the hill home,” Diamond said. “And, if there’s anything that can’t done at the center, she takes it with her to do at home and brings it back done,” Diamond added. Mesa has been volunteering at the center since shortly after she moved to Monrovia in 1995. Mesa was born Adina Lorini, in Tuscany, Italy and grew up in the small seaside village of Follinica. She had one younger brother, Juliano, who died of lung cancer when he was 50 years old. When Adina was a teen, during World War II, Germany invaded and flyers were posted in the town square, telling townsfolk they must evacuate within 48 hours. The Lorini family went to live in a two small rooms, used previously for grain storage, at a farm. “We got in a truck and moved to where my uncle was living with a farmer in the country,” she said. “We had no lights, and no water. But, we learned to adjust. We lived there two years. Until

the Germans left.” One day, the farmer’s wife told Adina’s mother of a woman selling eggs at another farm. Adina, then 17, went with her mother to go buy eggs. That’s when Frank Mesa, an American soldier stationed in Italy, first saw the girl he immediately told his fellow soldiers he was going to marry. Mesa followed Adina and her mother home and visited the young girl whenever he could get time away from his duties. At first, Adina said, she paid no attention to the handsome young soldier. However, with time, she fell in love and Mesa asked to marry her. “My father said, “No!” she said, adding all the men in the family said “no,” but the women all said, “Yes, she can go to America!” Her father eventually consented. “We were young, we didn’t know what we were doing, everyone was happy. I guess it was my destiny,” she said, with a smile and a laugh. Moving to America involved some culture shock. The young war bride moved from a small town where everyone knew her and she could walk to the store safely on her own, to the traffic and big city life of New York. Mesa said she didn’t like the crowds, she didn’t like the food, she didn’t like the water, and she spoke no English, so she wasn’t able to understand anyone. “It was terrible. I missed my family and friends,” she said. The young couple moved in with Frank Mesa’s parents. He was able to find a job, but Adina was home alone. She tells of a day when she was crying uncontrollably and she had a vision of God’s hands comforting and quieting her. The doorbell rang and a neighbor, she didn’t know also came to comfort her, though the two couldn’t communicate in words.

That’s when the Adina Mesa knew she would be OK and she could live in America. “Little by little, God helped me through it, but, it was very hard for me,” she said. She eventually found a job, making costume jewelry for an Asian man, who spoke Chinese and didn’t mind she spoke no English. Through time, she learned Spanish, as her husband’s family was Puerto Rican. When the couple got their first television, she was able to learn English by listening and imitation, she said, adding her first words in English were: “Bring me a cup of coffee.” After several years in New York, Frank Mesa became ill. He had a heart attack in 1977 followed by several strokes. He became worried he would die with the cold weather there and the couple decided to move to a warmer climate. They moved to San Gabriel in 1984 and about six months later, Adina Mesa got a job working in the linen room at a hospital in Los Angeles. Six years later, Frank Mesa died. When she was 67 years old Mesa decided to retire. “I went to work one day and my body said, ‘I don’t want to work any more,’ ” she said. She found an apartment in Monrovia and gave her notice at work. For a short while, Mesa tried to keep busy with crafts: sewing, knitting and embroidery. “It was hard to pass the day that way,” she said. She went to Monrovia City Hall, but was told they had no senior center, and she should try the one in Duarte. After a short while, going on trips with the Duarte seniors and attending activities, she found she could volunteer. The rest is history, she said. “Whatever they need, they call me, and I do it,” she said, adding, “No job is too big or too small.”

Local Reverse Mortgage Lending Company Recognized By BBB Reverse mortgage lender recognized for customer service, marketplace ethics and community service “The reverse mortgage has been the undeserving victim of years of bad press,” explains Phil Goss, Reverse Mortgage Professional in Glendora. “I see my job as an educator rather than salesman. For many people a reverse mortgage is an excellent option, and I take the time to explain the facts properly so people can avoid a lot of heartache later.” That approach probably has a lot to do with the notoriety Goss’ company has received this year. Atlanta-based Generation Mortgage Company, the largest privately owned reverse mortgage retailer and wholesaler in the Unites States, has won the 2011 Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Metro Atlanta’s Torch Award for Customer Service and Marketplace Ethics, and was the first runner-up for

the Torch Award in Community Service. “We’re very pleased to be recognized by the BBB for awards that are so closely aligned to the way our company thinks and operates each day,” said Chairman and CEO Jeff Lewis, Generation Mortgage Company. “The characteristics that these awards represent are inherent in our company vision and are the targets by which we strive to set the industry standards for client trust and customer service excellence.” The BBB of Metro Atlanta annually presents the Torch Awards to businesses in the community. Awards are presented in three different categories: Marketplace Ethics, Customer Service and Community Service. Judges are highly selective and a variety of information, includ-

ing client testimonials and documentation of business practices applicable to the specific award, are closely examined. The Torch Awards build upon Generation Mortgage’s already strong relationship with the BBB. In December 2009, Generation Mortgage earned the organization’s highest accreditation rating, an A+. These awards acknowledge Generation Mortgage’s position as an ethical company that is committed to fair conduct in the marketplace, exceptional customer service, and giving back to the community. For more information, consumers may call Phil Goss, Reverse Mortgage Professional with Generation Mortgage at 626-691-0135 or visit his website at www. generationmortgage.com/ philgoss.

Caltrans announced that Richard Gonzalez, a 226 W. Colorado Blvd.  Arcadia  626-446-8206 52-year-old Caltrans mainwww.santaanitachurch.org tenance worker, died shortly before 9 a.m. today after being struck by a vehicle while he was picking up litter along the northbound Interstate 15 connector ramp to eastbound State Route 94 in San Diego. He is the third Caltrans worker to die on the 11:15 11:15AM AM job in 48 days - the most ever in such a short period of time. 11:15 AMAM 11:15 AM 11:15 On May 4, Stephen 11:15 AM Palmer, Sr. was struck by a Rev. Paul S. Beck • Senior Pastor trolley and killed in Nation-

al City near San Diego. On June 7, Jaime Obeso was killed by an errant vehicle while working on Interstate 8 in Imperial County. Caltrans has called a statewide safety stand down to emphasize safety procedures. All routine or regularly-scheduled highway maintenance activities are being temporarily halted to revisit and reinforce all aspects of field safety and to ask the public for help. Caltrans will post notices on its statewide network of more than 700

electronic highway message signs reminding motorists to watch out for Caltrans employees. Flags will be at half staff on Caltrans buildings across the state in remembrance of Caltrans workers who have needlessly lost their lives this year. “Every day, highway workers put their lives in danger just by going to work,” said Acting Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty. “These three tragic incidents are sobering reminders that we all must do everything we can

to keep our highways safe. Motorists must slow down, watch out for highway workers and safely move over a lane when passing work crews.” Highway construction and maintenance work is one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States. The risk of death is seven times greater for highway workers than for the average worker. Since the 1920s, 178 Caltrans employees have died while on the job.

DMV Registration Bills Delayed for July Registrants BY NURIA MATHOG California vehicle owners with car registrations scheduled to expire next month have been given a temporary reprieve; due to a state licensing law passed in May, these owners will be granted an additional month in which to make payments. The state Department of Motor Vehicles will not begin accepting payments from July and August registrants until this time. Last month, Governor Brown signed into law SB 94, a bill that alters the statutes overseeing the billing and renewal process for vehicle registration fees due July 1 and later. The bill eliminated a former DMV policy providing vehicle owners with a 60-day advance notification of their registration’s pending expiration date. Furthermore, it implemented a 30-day grace period for owners who meet the expiration date criteria—provided that the registration renewal payment is made within 30 days of the vehicle’s expiration date, the owner will receive no penalty or fees. SB 94 was the product of a joint effort between

Governor Brown and state legislators to buy time while negotiating a budget deal that would extend high licensing fees. Under previous license law, vehicle fees for July registrants would have dropped from 1.15 percent of total vehicle value to 0.65 percent: an overall reduction of $1 for every $200 of vehicle worth. However, the governor and state Democrats expressed concern that if the fee extensions passed, drivers would be billed twice— once for the lower amount, and once for the original amount. The bill will remain operative until January 1, 2012. Because of the new policy, state law enforcement agencies have been instructed to waive late vehicle registrations in July. Insurance officials say that drivers unable to update their license plates immediately will continue to receive coverage. The changes to the law are viewable online at the California DMV’s website.

MUSD Will NOT be Closing Any Libraries…Monrovia Unified School District is Listed as ‘Qualified' by State Continued from page 1 have to take a hard look at their three-year plans and seek additional monies from sources other than state funds. Re-emphasizing the urgency of addressing the financial emergency facing California’s schools, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced last Friday that 33 more school districts face severe budget problems, bringing the total number of districts in financial jeopardy to 143. “These numbers underscore how urgently school districts across California need a balanced state budget in place that provides a full year of stable funding for education,” Torlakson said. “After three successive years of unprecedented and harmful cuts, students, teachers, parents, and administrators need certainty now to prepare for the new school year. Deeper cuts, adding to the billions of dollars in already deferred payments

to schools, or delaying a final budget only will risk adding more districts to the growing list of school systems in financial jeopardy.” The new list of troubled districts is a compilation of the certifications of second Interim Status Reports by Local Educational Agencies (LEAs), incorporating actual expenditures through the end of January 2011 and projections through the end of the fiscal year plus the next two fiscal years. The certifications reflect whether an LEA is able to meet its financial obligations. The number of LEAs on the negative certification list remained at 13 from March, down one from a year ago. The number of LEAs on the qualified certification list rose to 130 from 97 in March, though down from 160 a year ago. The California Department of Education semiannually receives Interim Sta-

tus Reports on the financial status of the state’s 1,032 LEAs, comprised of school districts, county offices of education, and joint powers agencies. The certifications are classified as positive, qualified, or negative. A positive certification is assigned when the district will meet its financial obligations for the current and two subsequent fiscal years. A qualified certification is assigned when the district may not meet its financial obligations for the current or two subsequent fiscal years. This certification allows the LEA’s county office of education to provide assistance to the LEA. Monrovia Unified School District falls into this category, indicating more cuts may soon be on the horizon. A negative certification—the most serious of the classifications—is assigned when a district will be unable to meet its financial obligations for the

remainder of the current year or for the subsequent fiscal year. This certification means the LEA’s county office of education may intervene in the LEA’s finances. For more information and a list of LEAs on the Interim Status Report, please visit http://www.cde. ca.gov/fg/fi/ir/second1011. asp. Contrary to some reports of doom and gloom on a local blog, there will be no closures of libraries at the schools and only hourly cuts at this point, according to Kris Mariconda of The Monrovia Unified School District. Superintendent Linda Wagner told Beacon Media that while the report by the State Superintendent is no surprise, the district is working diligently to avoid cutbacks. However, with the state budget it is likely that all school districts in California will have to take a hard look at their threeyear budgets.

Mayor Bill Bogaard Comments on Redevelopment Bills Passed by California Legislature On behalf of the Pasadena City Council and the entire community, I want to extend gratitude to Assemblyman Anthony Portantino for his opposition to two California Assembly bills and his support for redevelopment. Last week, despite his opposition, the California Legislature, as part of their budget package, passed the two bills – ABX1 26 and ABX1 27 – that seek to extract $1.7 billion from redevelopment agencies this year and $400 million next year and ongoing into the future. ABX1 26, as adopted, eliminates redevelopment agencies effective Oct. 1, 2011; ABX1 27 exempts any redevelopment agency from elimination if it makes specified payments to the state. At this time we do not know the exact payment amounts. Legislation of this type directly undermines Pasadena’s financial ability to move forward with many of our planned projects such as the rehabilitation of the YWCA building, renovations to the Villa-Parke Community Center gymnasium and

improvements to Central Park in Old Pasadena. This legislation also jeopardizes many jobs throughout our community and eliminates millions of dollars in revenue that otherwise could be used to provide safe and affordable housing opportunities for Pasadena residents who need them most. We will continue to analyze the two bills and formulate a strategic response to the legislative action that will keep Pasadena’s tax dollars in Pasadena. Nonetheless, we believe, along with many legal experts throughout the state, that the bills violate the following provisions of the California Constitution: •Article XIIIA, Section 25.5, which prohibits city or county property tax from being used for schools. •Article XIIIA, Section 1, which prohibits the transfer of property tax to transit districts. •Article XIII, Section 24, which prohibits the legislature from restricting the use of taxes imposed by local governments for their local purposes. •Article XIIIA, Section

25.5, which prohibits indirect allocation of tax increment to schools, transit districts and fire protection districts. •Article XVI, Section 6, which prohibits the transfer of city or county revenues to schools, transit districts and fire protection districts, which are unlawful gifts of public funds. •Article XIIIB, which prohibits the use of property tax to fund state mandates. •Article XVI, Section 16, which requires all tax increment to be used to repay indebtedness incurred by redevelopment agencies to carry out redevelopment projects. •Article XIIIA, Section 25.5, which prohibits city and county property tax from being transferred to special districts without a 2/3 vote. Overall, we stand with the League of California Cities and the California Redevelopment Association and their members in the belief that ABX1 26 and ABX1 27 are bills that would eliminate the only local tool available to create jobs, eliminate blight and fund affordable housing.

AeroVironment, Inc. of Monrovia Announces 17% ( $292 Million) Revenue Growth in Fourth Quarter AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV) reported Tuesday financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ending April 30, 2011. “With record fourth quarter revenue of $106.1 million, fiscal 2011 revenue grew 17% to $292.5 million, exceeding our guidance, and diluted earnings per share increased 24% to $1.17,” said Tim Conver, AeroVironment chairman and chief executive officer. “Electric vehicle charging solutions and digital Puma unmanned aircraft systems successfully transitioned from development to production programs with attractive long-term growth prospects, while other innovative developments progressed toward customer adoption. The effective

performance of our team, the successful transition of great ideas to meaningful market adoption with first mover advantage and the strong demand for our solutions continue to position us well for long-term growth.” FISCAL 2011 FOURTH QUARTER RESULTS Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 was $106.1 million, up 7% over fourth quarter fiscal 2010 revenue of $99.4 million. The increase in revenue resulted from increased sales in our Efficient Energy Systems (EES) segment of $7.8 million offset by decreased sales in our Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) segment of $1.1 million. Income from operations for the fourth quarter

of fiscal 2011 was $25.2 million, up 7% from fourth quarter fiscal 2010 income from operations of $23.5 million. The increase in income from operations resulted from higher gross margin of $6.2 million offset by higher selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense of $1.2 million and higher research and development (R&D) expense of $3.3 million. Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 was $17.6 million, up 13% from fourth quarter fiscal 2010 net income of $15.6 million. Earnings per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 were $0.79, up 11% from fourth quarter fiscal 2010 earnings per diluted share of $0.71.

Monrovia City Council Discussion of Gold Line Negotiations Topped off with Frosting Continued from page 1

Tom Adams was the dissenting vote Tuesday. Meanwhile, Mayor Lutz kept things moving along at the council meeting where an attorney for Excalibur, Chris Sutton, was reminded by city manager Scott Ochoa that his gripes were in fact with the GLCA and NOT the city of Monrovia. Adams has been against the plan from the beginning. Photos by Terry Miller

recent Monrovia Day Celebration. It appeared that the Maintenance Yard suddenly needed a layer of frosting overseen by Peter Dills. There were some significant snickers in the audience when suddenly, city manager Scott Ochoa was preempted by what appeared to be yet another cupcake story on the food channel. By the time KGEM straightened out the problem for the home viewers, two Carmelite Nuns were addressing the council regarding the improvements on their care facility at Santa Teresita. From what KGEM covered, the nuns seemed to propose planting a rose garden in the middle of the Gold Line Maintenance Yard. Roses seemed better than frosting. The technical glitch, according to KGEM Executive Director Lance Mungia, was due to a computer server that had gone down and caused the live feed switch to be turned off and a pre-recorded cup cake contest from Monrovia Day was aired instead. Mungia assured Beacon Media that the entire city council meeting was recorded and will be available on their website by the time this newspaper is out on the streets. Most everyone in the audience took it in their stride and found the whole thing rather amusing and lightened the mood of the somewhat somber details of legal battles. Someone in the audience was heard uttering the words “and now for something completely different….” as Peter Dills chose his favorite cup cake. The British subject was, of course, comparing the technical glitch taking place to that of the famous British television troupe, Monty Python’s Flying Circus whose antics often

make no sense whatsoever but are hilarious nonetheless. Another wag said “At My age I’m more likely to eat a cup cake than ride the Gold Line.” What actually occurred was that the council voted 4 to 1 to continue the issue of the sale of redevelopment property to the Gold Line Authority to the July 5 meeting of the Council. The dissenting vote

came from Council Member Tom Adams. Adams contended that the city was not being compensated enough for the property and that no other city was willing to have the facility. Adams said, “Let them keep their trains in L..A.” Mayor Pro Tem Joe Garcia suggested that the council continue to “move forward” on the issue and so moved that the discussion be continued to the next meeting. That was the motion which carried. In the public discussion included input from the attorney representing the owner of the Excalibur property owner. Excalibur owns several acres of the property under consideration for the maintenance yard. Their issues seem to be the California Environmental Quality Act report on the property, the use of Eminent Domain to take over the property and whether the GLCA had the right to take over and poten-

tially close streets in town. The attorney even threatened to invoke the RICO act, a legal action normally used to combat organized crime. The property in question is bordered by Evergreen on the North, Duarte on the South side, Shamrock on the West and California on the East. The day after the meeting Council Member Adams said that none of the members of the board of directors of the Gold Line Construction Authority are willing to allow the yard in their yard including the member appointed by the city of Los Angeles in whose district the current construction yard exists. While the City of Monrovia contends that bringing the maintenance yard to town would create jobs and revenue in the city, Adams maintains that it would cost jobs and lose tax revenue for the city. The city will be voting on selling the redevelopment owned property to the GLCA for $39,627,818. This would not include the property owned by Excalibur. Adams contends the property is worth almost twice as much and suggested a selling price of $74 million. “If we are going to take the trash no one else wants, make them pay for it,” Adams said. In contrast, Mayor Mary Ann Lutz said she felt the discussions with the GLCA were going well and that she felt it made sense to continue the issue to the next meeting of the City Council. At the meeting on Tuesday, City Manager Scott Ochoa said the city was continuing to discuss the environmental impact report, the Eminent Domain issue and the price of the property with the GLCA.
