Red Lights and Writ of Quo Warranto Dominate GLCA Meeting Tuesday in Arcadia BY RUTH LONGORIA KINGSLAND

(THIS WEEK VOTE ON PAGE 14)

Volume XXIX, No. XXV

Construction Begins on I-210 Gold Line Bridge After nearly a year of design work, permit approvals and hiring of subcontractors, crews will start work on the I-210 Gold Line Bridge next week. The 584-linear foot bridge crosses over the eastbound lanes of the I-210 Freeway between Baldwin and Santa Anita Avenues, and will facilitate connection between the existing Sierra Madre Villa Station in East Pasadena and the future Arcadia Station. It is the first component of the Metro Gold Line Foothill

Extension light rail project from Pasadena to Azusa to move from design to construction. Over the next few months, crews will clear the center and southern freeway medians, build a 500 foot long temporary retaining wall, and then start work on the massive foundations for the bridge structure. Intermittent late-night closures of the Eastbound I-210 Freeway will be necessary during the year-long

The Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Authority’s Gold Line Construction Authority (GLCA) held a Special Board Meeting on Tuesday, July 5. Most of the members of the Monrovia City Council were in attendance, although only Council Member Tom Adams spoke to the Board. But they were all taken by surprise by anoth-

er speaker, Attorney Christopher Sutton who represents George Brokate and Excalibur Property Holdings. Sutton walked an elephant into the meeting room (metaphorically) and left it standing there. The elephant in this case came in the guise of a Writ of Quo Warranto.

People Who Live in Glass Houses... OPINION BY TERRY MILLER July 4, that all American tradition - Parades, hot dogs and Old Glory, plus of course, controversy. That is, of course, if you were in Sierra Madre for the traditional Fourth of July pomp and circumstance show. There was quite a spot of bother over an elephant that was to be included as a “surprise” in this year’s parade. So much so that eventually at the eleventh hour, the idea of having the elephant in the parade was nixed as PETA was allegedly going to disrupt the parade if Tia the Elephant was, in fact, a participant. Now, whatever the motivation behind the inclusion of said elephant, I feel confident that those involved in trying to arrange this entry are not people who would EVER consider animal abuse ac-

ceptable. In fact, initially I thought it was a political gag…you know the GOP, always up to some kind of circus trick! We were alerted to the controversy by a local resident in an email and were the very first, legally recognized media, to announce the intended “mystery” entry in the parade on our website. Ironically, the single, most vocal opponent of the Elephant’s appearance was riding in an old Cadillac sporting an Old Glory shirt. You ask, where’s the irony? This chap, John Crawford, who likes to think that he single handedly brought the elephant controversy to PETA’s attention is a bit of a hypocrite, to say the very least. On his blog, Sierra

Madre Tattler, he was asking people to contact PETA and sign petitions and blasting anyone who would even utter the word elephant. Now, keep this in mind when I tell you that Crawford was so proud to ride in a car with a man who has worked at Santa Anita Race Track for many, many years - where people race horses. PETA is very ANTI horse racing. Now how are you going spin this, Mr. Crawford? ‘The Horseracing Industry: Drugs, Deception and Death ‘They weigh at least 1,000 pounds, they have legs that are supported by ankles the size of a human’s, and they’re forced to run around dirt tracks at speeds of more than 30 miles per hour while

Of all my vacations, my favorite has to be the month I spent on a farm in County Sligo, Ireland with my husband’s cousins. Living with a family and being a part of their everyday lives, I discovered the much-storied Ireland of peat fires and pubs. I experienced first-hand the Irish temper and the Irish wit. I soaked in the beauty of vast green fields broken by labyrinths of stone fences creeping up the hillsides. No adjectives could ever capture the peace and pleasure I felt as I climbed those hills and luxuriated

a couch, except I didn’t land as gracefully. When I painfully rolled over and looked up, there was the bull with his head up on the fence staring at me. I was petrified but I don’t think he saw me as much of a threat. He watched me for a short while, snorted and trounced off across his field. When he was but a dot on the horizon, I decided it was finally safe to climb back over the fence and continue my journey. It was safe enough but, try as I might, it didn’t seem possible. I didn’t have the same motivation as before. I never did get back over that fence. I had to take the long way around. Even in the quietude of the green hills of Ireland, I had been reminded that we often have to take detours in life.

PUSD Announces new Superintendent

in the seclusion. One fine morning I had set off to hike over the hills on a shortcut to the coastline. My feet were self-steering through the sparkling dew-covered grass, my mind was just kind of floating from one thought to another, and my wits had gone bird’s nesting. I was suddenly brought out of my reverie when I heard behind me a long, low “Mooooooo.” I glanced over my shoulder and saw a bull coming toward me with a look in his eyes that said he had a definite plan of action in mind. Well folks, I took off with a speed you cannot imagine. I headed straight for one of those tall, sturdy stone fences and went up and over it with the ease of a cat over the back of

The Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) Board of Education announced tonight that, by a unanimous vote of 7-0, it will enter into negotiations with Jon R. Gundry as the final candidate for the new Superintendent of Schools. Mr. Gundry, who has served as interim superintendent of the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) since 2010, will replace Superintendent Edwin Diaz, who will retire on June 30 after four and a half years of leading the District. “Our four-month search for a new leader to continue the momentum of accelerating student achievement is at a close,” said Board President Renatta Cooper. “Jon is an accomplished leader who can focus on moving forward and working together for our children’s future, so that all children learn and our students are prepared for college and careers.” As the chief executive officer of LACOE and secre-

tary of the County Board of Education, Mr. Gundry was responsible for ensuring the financial and academic stability of 80 school districts that serve more than two million preschool and school-age children, and for overseeing $16 billion in school district funding and a staff of nearly 4,000. He was appointed interim superintendent by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors following the retirement of Darline P. Robles last summer. Previously as deputy superintendent, he had been a vital member of LACOE’s Executive Cabinet, developing policy and overseeing strategic projects and initiatives. “I am honored to be selected to lead this community in making further academic progress and addressing the challenges its students and families face,” said Mr. Gundry. “I look forward to working with families and members of the communities to inspire and prepare students for their future.” Prior to joining LACOE in February 2008, Mr. Gundry served in the Houston (Texas) Independent School District. His tenure there included 12 years as an administrator, ultimately serving as an executive principal overseeing 17 campuses in a high school feeder system. He also taught English, Spanish and ESL for middle and high

schools in the district and in other locales. “The search firm presented an outstanding slate of candidates to the Board and after lengthy and careful deliberation, the Board reached a majority decision on the person it felt best embodied most of the characteristics members of this community indicated they wanted in a new superintendent,” said Board Vice President Ed Honowitz. Today’s selection culminates a four-month process that began in March and included outreach to parents, staff, and community leaders to identify the qualities they wanted to see in the next superintendent. The Board retained the executive search firm Ray & Associates to recruit and select candidates; final candidate interviews began last weekend. The search firm and Board of Education relied heavily on the results of the community input process when reviewing the strengths of the candidates and finalists in the deliberation. Mr. Gundry earned a bachelor’s degree from Northern Arizona University and a master’s degree in school administration from Houston Baptist University. PUSD operations will be managed by a team of senior level district managers before Mr. Gundry formally begins his tenure.

Exceptionally Odd Letter of the Week Editor’s Note: We couldn’t resist running this email “letter” (a rather thinly veiled self serving promo) from a local dentist. Ever since said dentist’s column has stopped running in our newspaper(s) we get some occasional, rarely insightful, albeit snide remarks either via email or Facebook from said dissatisfied drill master. Evidently, Dr. Von Bulow has some issues with us. We share, for your amusement, the very latest: Here’s the e mail the Temple City dental chap sent me last week: “Dear Editor (actually he said ‘Sir Terry’) Heard it through the grapevine someone might pitch a story about me re: a top dentist honor. Please do not publish the piece in your crummy paper. Any kind of exposure in the TC Trib would tarnish the honor, USC football, and upper bicuspids but more importantly...it would creep me out. Good luck with the diet, Jack “(Von Bulow) Dear Discontented Dentist: Thank you so much for your uniquely anesthetized email, I read it with profound, albeit insipid, boredom. Indeed, when you open your mouth, it seems that this is only to change whichever foot was previously in there. Apparently you came about this ‘grapevine’ (me

thinks…. via wiki leaks. Jack, for the record, we (news people) had a few more important things to cover in recent weeks than a decaying piece of PR generated from a two-bit PR Firm. Trumped up awards are hollow, rarely do we print such utter drivel……. I take that back, we used to print your column. In recent weeks our ‘crummy paper’ covered the sentencing of a former mayor of your fine town. The Los Angeles Times picked up the image. Not bad for a ‘crummy’ paper really. At least Cathe Wilson gave us something interesting to write about. We have covered graduations, honored special students who are going on to colleges all over the world and in general tried, with our limited resources, to provide the communities we serve with some information of interest and importance. How much money did you spend on advertising in the Temple City Tribune in the time we ran your column? How many inches of space did we give you for your ramblings? Thin publications, yes…That is in no small part, in fact, thanks to people like you who do not support a local newspaper. Everyone wants free publicity, but you, sir, are indeed take the cake. - Since my response to your last criticism, you have now perhaps reached rock bottom,

and just started to dig. Perhaps the cult to which you belong has enabled you to become more annoying without thinking of the consequences. However, I can assure you that your comments, while striking a nerve, made absolutely no sense whatsoever. Moreover, you spend time writing to us to plead with us NOT to run the puff piece (even if your email is tongue-in-your-considerablyego-swollen-cheek) I think most would agree Cathe Wilson’s sentencing and subsequent dramatic photographs of her breakdown in court as well as other state and local news in the San Gabriel Valley warranted a little more ink that your ‘honor’. Our website post of Wilson’s sentencing is fast approaching 5000 views on a slideshow since last Thursday. This, of course, speaks volumes for what you call a ‘crummy’ paper. I’d be delighted to speak with you on the merits of kindness to strangers and give you some hints how to make friends and influence editors. However, I know this will never happen. I have read your case, Mr. Von Bulow, and I am no wiser now than I was when I started. -Editor

she did at the June 2nd hearing after her sentencing was delayed. I wrote to the judge, sent in her interview, and if I in any way helped her go to prison for 4 years, I could not be happier. She is completely guilty. I am SO sick about hearing about her health problems. Ms. Wilson was not too sick to go to restaurants and collect money from Mr. Wang’s people. She seems to have only gotten sick in court because things didn’t go her way. I was not there, but it SOUNDS like she *tried* to pass out, and when she couldn’t she started shaking... I call BS! I DO have to give credit to Terry Miller for the incredible job he did taking a photo of her in court. I feel like framing it and knowing each time that I look at that photo that justice was served.

Dear Editor: I am a 30 year resident of Temple City. When the Temple City Tribune ran a 3 issue interview with Cathe Wilson in May, I was pretty angry. (I understand the interview was re-printed because of an error, but still.........) I put her “interview” from each issue in an envelope and sent it off to the district attorney (who had NO idea she did an exclusive interview in this city.) Mr. Hasset called to tell me he included the interview in the court documents. I think justice as served and I DID feel bad about her “collapse,” but got to thinking.. she would not have had ONE health issue or gone to the hospital if she got straight probation. If she got off, she would have been posing for photos, smiling and giving the victory (peace) sign

Then An Elephant was introduced Into the Room

“I just sent you a new client”

Continued from page 1 This centuries old legal ruling questions the legality of the parties involved in a proceeding. The practice began when King Edward I of England sent such warrants out demanding to know by what right (or warrant) or a lord held his title to land or dignities. It was later applied in this country through civil actions to question the claim of a governmental or corporate official’s election (or in this case

appointment) to an office. Sutton provided copies of the writ to the elected city officials who also sit on the GLCA board. This was done as required by law according to Sutton. He said that once all the named parties were given copies (in essence served notice of the potential of a legal action) they have 15 days to respond from the notice to the State Attorney General. According to Sut-

ton, that notice has been sent. The State A.G. now has three options: to move forward with the action as an office itself, to allow the civil attorney (Sutton) to proceed with the action, or to deem that there is no merit to the action, at which point it would be dropped. After those public comments the Board took an immediate (out of order) Closed Session only to return to con-

tinue most of the agenda to the August 10 meeting. The Board then acted on three other agenda items and then (again out of order) went into closed session and returned to continue two of those items to July 13. The only item left standing was the building of the bridge over the 210 Freeway. It is still on schedule. But will it be a bridge to nowhere?

Monrovia Mayor to be Honored at Annual Watershed Celebration Mayor Mary Ann Lutz is among five regional leaders that will be honored this month for her relentless work to end Southern California’s dependence on imported sources of water. The Watershed Council, a non-profit group that works to preserve, restore and enhance the health of the Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley Rivers Watershed, will honor these leaders at their annual event on July 14 in downtown Los Angeles. The other recipients are Heal the Bay Founder Dorothy Green, Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaro-

slovsky, Carpet Manufacturer Bentley Prince Street, and Temple City Councilman Carl Blum. “The Los Angeles and San Gabriel Rivers Watershed Council is a very important regional voice for water quality, watershed restoration and maintaining our ecological balance,” Mayor Mary Ann Lutz said. “To be named an honoree is astonishing because they are saying that I have in some small way helped to achieve their mission.” Mayor Lutz has been a staunch advocate for developing progressive environ-

mental policies in Monrovia. She helped lead a successful campaign to have Monrovia purchase and create a wilderness preserve in the foothills, and has played an active role in the City’s adoption of its Environmental Accords. In her current role, Mayor Lutz has been a champion of water independence and is the Founding Chair and current Vice Chair of the Environmental, Energy and National Resources Committee for the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments. This event marks the 15th anniversary of the Los Angeles and San Gabriel

Valley Rivers Watershed Council. The council was founded in 1995 by leading environmental activist Dorothy Greene as a means to research programs that examine water usage and quality as well as to create and enhance preservation and conservation tactics. The watershed covers more than 1,500 square miles, and extends from the Santa Susanna Mountains in the west in San Bernardino to San Gabriel Mountains in the north to the Pacific Ocean in the south.

Cal Phil Hits a High Note With Special Presentation of Andrew Llyod Weber Meets Puccini Saturday July 9 The second concert of this summer’s spectacular Festival On The Green series continues at the Arboretum on July 9, 2011 with “Andrew Lloyd Webber Meets Puccini.”. The exciting evening features music from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s phenomenally successful productions as well as works by one of grand opera’s most renowned and revered composers, Giacomo Puccini. Under the direction of acclaimed Maestro Victor Vener, Founder and Music Director of the California Philharmonic, the concert includes excerpts from blockbuster musicals by Lloyd Webber, such as Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Sunset Boulevard and Evita as well as arias from such beloved Puccini operas as La Boheme, Madame Butterfly, Gianni Schicci, Turandot and Tosca. “Works by Lloyd Webber and Puccini have more in common than people

may at first think,” explains Vener, whose mission since founding Cal Phil in 1995 has been to introduce audiences to what he calls “timeless great music,” whether it was written in the 21st century or the 16th. Both Lloyd Webber and Puccini make use of lush, lovely melodies, glorious orchestration and have great stories to tell. If someone loved seeing Phantom, it’s a small step back in time to love Boheme, too, as our great orchestra and guest artists James Barbour, Sandra Rubalcava and Christopher Bengochea, as well as the Cal Phil Chorale and Children’s Chorus will demonstrate.” The 2011Festival on The Green summer concert series marks the last to take place at the Arboretum. After more than 15 highly successful years at this venue, Cal Phil is proudly moving across the street to Santa Anita Park beginning summer 2012. Gates open at 5:30pm

with the concert beginning at 7:30pm. The series continues on July 23, 2011 and July 24, 2011 and will have people Dancing Under The Stars to everything from Bolero to Glenn Miller to Thcaikovsky’s Black Swan from Swan Lake. Rodgers and Hammerstein In Europe features Broadway and the Classics on August 6, 2011 and August 7, 2011 with That’s Entertainment paying homage to some of music’s greatest moments such as Fiddler on the Roof and Gustav Mahler’s Titan Symphony on the season’s final concerts August 20, 2011 and August 21, 2011. For further information or to schedule a time to speak with Maestro Victor Vener, please contact Lauren Lewis at 818.970.0052 or lauren@ pasadena-entertainment.com.

Monrovia’s AeroVironment Executives Threatened by al-Qaida Federal officials are warning a Monrovia surveillance aircraft manufacturer that Islamic terrorist group al-Qaida has threatened nearly a dozen of its top executives, according to a report issued Friday. Monrovia Lt. Mike Lee: said “After 9/11 we did a complete assessment of all the potential targets in the city and we have be certain to maintain their security.” Lee went on to explain that because Aerovironment manufactured among other things, drones used

for unmanned surveillance, its company was deemed to be a potential target and so was of concern to the police department. Mayor Mary Ann Lutz said that she was aware of the interest of what she called the “concern of federal agencies.” She assured this newspaper that Monrovia Police Department was aware of the situation and that they were cooperating with those federal agencies. No one was available to answer questions at Aerovironment.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations could not confirm a specific threat against the Monrovia facility of AeroVironment Inc., but city officials met Thursday and announced enhanced security measures over the holiday weekend after threats surfaced on a jihadist website. AV makes a variety of unmanned surveillance aircraft systems, including the Dragon Eye, Raven, Wasp and Puma AE that are used by U.S. forces in the ‘war on terrorism.’

carrying people on their backs. (1) Racehorses are the victims of a multibillion-dollar industry that is rife with drug abuse, injuries, and race fixing, and many horses’ careers end in slaughterhouses. A New York Daily News reporter remarked, “The thoroughbred race horse is a genetic mistake. It runs too fast, its frame is too large, and its legs are far too small. As long as mankind demands that it run at high speeds under stressful conditions, horses will die at racetracks.”(2) Racehorses can cost millions of dollars and are often purchased by syndicates, which may be composed of thousands of members. (3,4) There are also trainers, handlers, veterinarians, and jockeys involved, so a horse is rarely able to develop any kind of bond with one person or with other horses. Racehorses travel from country to country, state to state, and racetrack to racetrack, so few horses are able to call one place “home.” Most do not end up in the well-publicized races but are instead trucked, shipped, or flown to the thou-

sands of other races that take place all over the country every year. Horses begin training or are already racing when their skeletal systems are still growing and are unprepared to handle the pressures of running on a hard track at high speeds. (5) Improved medical treatment and technological advancements have done little to remedy the plight of the racehorse. One study on injuries at racetracks concluded that one horse in every 22 races suffered an injury that prevented him or her from finishing a race, while another estimates that 800 thoroughbreds die each year in North America because of injuries. (6) Strained tendons or hairline fractures can be tough for veterinarians to diagnose, and the damage may go from minor to irreversible at the next race or workout. Horses do not handle surgery well, as they tend to be disoriented when coming out of anesthesia, and they may fight casts or slings, possibly causing further injury. Many are euthanized in order to save the owners further vet-

erinary fees and other expenses on horses that can’t race again.” John Crawford has verbally assaulted just about anyone and everyone in town who is even remotely involved in the July 4 committee and or anyone who disagrees with his diatribe regarding the elephant. The gentleman who was riding in the car with Crawford was none other than John Shear, a wonderful kind and gentle Englishman of 90 years, who saved a child’s life and risking his own when a horse bolted from its handler at Santa Anita a few months ago. We all know the story by now. John Shear was appropriately selected as Hometown Hero for his exceptional bravery. He has been honored and rightly so. Does Mr. John Crawford consider Mr. Shear a person who abuses animals? I think not. I’m sure the same is true of those who wanted the elephant in the parade. I think it wise to think carefully before you attack those with whom you do not agree. That’s where the irony struck me. There is, simply, no excuse for animal abuse! Perhaps we all need to take a deep look into how we live our lives and the roles animals play in those lives we hold so dear. Do you eat meat, for example? Any cursory research into the way the meat industry treats animals should alarm not only PETA but every single man woman and child in the United States. for more images of the parade go to: sierramadreweekly.com

proval to table the resolutions until the July 13 Board meeting, allowing further consideration and review of legal ramifications, which may result if the Authority attempts to condemn the Monrovia land. Estrada put the brakes on the project after one Monrovia landowner’s attorney, Robert P. Silverstein spoke during the public comment portion of the meeting. Silverstein promised the Authority a lawsuit, should it continue the plan to take his client’s land. Silverstein represents George Brokate, a Vietnam veteran, whose family has owned a piece of commercial property in Monrovia for about 50 years. Brokate doesn’t want to sell the land and objects to the Authority taking his land for an easement into its proposed maintenance yard. Silverstein provided the Board with a large file of paperwork outlining why the project’s environmental, noise and other studies are flawed, as well as his other objections to the land grab. Estrada said the Board would investigate Silverstein’s information during the coming week, prior to its next meeting. Although the Authority proposed taking by eminent domain several properties

within the city of Monrovia, all of those lands are privately owned. The city owned land, which the city of Monrovia has been in the process of negotiating a sale with the Authority for the past few years, was not one of those listed in the Authority’s resolutions Tuesday night, said Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz. Lutz declined comment on the Tuesday night proceedings, saying instead the city continues to be in negotiations and she is not opposed to a sale of that property; however, she would be opposed should the Authority choose to take the city’s 14-acre parcel by eminent domain. Board members previously said condemning the city of Monrovia’s 14-acre parcel is one of four options being considered should the Authority not be able to negotiate a deal with the city. After the meeting, Monrovia City Manager Scott Ochoa said the hour-long meeting was a bit confusing, in terms of order, as the Board excused itself to a closed session after a brief public comment portion and then progressed with a few uncontested Gold Line updates prior to Estrada’s interruption of a vote on the contested resolutions. Ochoa also said he’s pleased the Board is taking

the time to consider all the information before moving forward. The Authority “has a lot to deal with to come to an agreement with all parties,” he said, adding, “If they have to take a step backward to go forward, so be it.” In other Gold Line business, a video report shown at the meeting detailed plans for the coming year and construction set to begin later this month. Much of the construction work that’s expected to disrupt traffic along the I-210, in particular between Santa Anita and Baldwin avenues, will be confined to the hours between midnight and 5 a.m., to lessen impact on commuters. A 584-linnear-foot bridge is to be constructed across I-210 between Santa Anita and Baldwin avenues, and will include the construction of three massive concrete pilings, 11 feet in diameter and 110 feet deep. Each of the three pilings will take one week to construct, according to a video report from Lawrence DaMore, project executive with Skanska USA. A few revisions to the Foothill Extension project also were reported, including moving a proposed 1.5-acre, 125-space parking area from the west to the east corner of Highland Avenue at Business Center Drive in the city of Duarte. This change due to a request by the city of Duarte. Also in Duarte, a previously proposed 350-foot long sound wall construction east of Mountain Avenue would be eliminated due to a recent sound analysis, which deemed the sound wall unnecessary. And, the Board is still considering which option is most cost effective and feasible in regard to a home on Angelino Avenue in Azusa, which sound analysis now says would be significantly impacted by vibrations, as the home is within 15 feet of the proposed Gold Line tracks. The Authority will decide between a few options on that property, including acquiring the property or negotiating an easement with the property owner. More information is available about the project and its future traffic information at www.foothillextension. org or by calling the I-210 hotline at: 1-855-446-1160.

Burglary Suspects Arrested in Pasadena On Wednesday, June 29, 2011, Pasadena and South Pasadena Police Officers arrested three suspects from the Los Angeles area after they were seen by residents casing homes in the area of State Street in the City of Pasadena. Officers from both cities responded to the area with knowledge that this part of town has had daytime residential burglaries. The suspects saw officers and fled the scene on foot and in a vehicle, however; they were ultimately caught. Pasadena detectives determined the suspects were members of an LA gang responsible for multiple

burglaries in Pasadena, South Pasadena and Glendale. Detectives are continuing their investigation and believe these individuals may be responsible for other crimes throughout the San Gabriel Valley. “Enhancing public safety and the apprehension of individuals responsible for crimes is our mission. We accomplished this with a collateral effort between police departments and the help of diligent residents who monitor their neighborhoods and notify police when individuals are seen acting suspicious,” said Chief Phillip L. Sanchez.

Local Runners Qualify for USA Track & Field Junior Olympic Championships BY LARA L. LARRAMENDI

Ashley Gomez, Sarah Troescher and Eryn Blakely, members of the San Gabriel Valley High Performance Track Club, successfully competed in the USA Track & Field Region 15 Junior Olympic Championship the weekend of June 24-26, 2011 in Escondido, CA and qualified to run in the USA

Track & Field Junior Olympic Championship at Wichita State University’s Cessna Stadium in Wichita, Kansas July 26 - 31, 2011. The top five finishers in each final race of each age category at the Region 15 Championships qualify to move on to the Junior Olympic Championship.

A sixth grader at St. Luke’s School in Temple City, Ashley Gomez qualified for the 800 Meters (Midget Girls) with a time of 2:30.87. Sarah Troescher, an eighth grader at St. Rita’s School in Sierra Madre qualified in the 400 Meters (Youth Girls) with a time of 1:01.84. Eryn Blakely, a Junior at Alverno High School, Sierra Madre, qualified in the 800 Meters (Intermediate Girls) with a time of 2:24.81. The student athletes know that their hard work continues as they practice under the guidance of their coaches at SGV High Performance, a USATF Region 15 (So. Cal) sanctioned youth track club formed in 2007. Head Coach Keisha Marvin is a former UCLA AllAmerican and world class hurdler. Assistant Coach Zalika Davis-Heart is a former UCLA middle distance stand

each truck is the most efficient and effective way and it meets the standards for the National Fire Protection Association: 1710. The city of Pasadena in balancing its budget has an “advantage” of over other cities with the Water and Power Department being city-owned. This year the PWP transferred $15.4 million from its fund to the city’s general fund. But cuts and downsizing are inevitable. The dilemma of trying to make the budget balance is a difficult one. At the Rialto summit Assembly Budget Committee Chair Bob Blumenfield (D-San Fernando Valley) gave some staggering statistics, “California ranks 47th in how much we spend per student in the classroom. California ranks 49th in the nation in terms of teacher-tostudent ratio,” said Blumenfield. There are around 174 school districts in California that are on the edge of bankruptcy and 19,000 teachers have already been laid-off. “That is unacceptable in the state of California, the wealthiest state in the union,” said Blumenfield. The United States cur-

rently ranks 25th in math and 21st in science in the world according to the U.S. Department of Education of the 60 percent of new jobs are going to require skills that only 20 percent of people are going to have. The California School System funding is based on Prop 98 formula, which means that the schools are a function of the state’s revenue. The grim news is if revenue and other changes aren’t made that $2 billion would just be the start of cuts for education. Another part of the budget move around 40,000 low-level prison inmates being transferred to county jails. California has 33 adult prisons which hold over 142,000 inmates. The Pasadena City Jail Administrator, Michelle Mercier Robinson is unsure of the move, “I don’t know how the facility will be completely affected.” Robinson has been working at the 104 bed jail for over five years, “We would definitely need to hire more staff if we needed to accommodate more inmates,” said Robinson, “but that’s direct from the city budget.”

Everyone knows how the economy has been struggling and the sacrifices that people, businesses and the government have had to make. Last Monday, the Pasadena City Council approved $7 million dollars worth of cuts from its general budget, cut 150 city jobs, lowered funds to the fire department by five percent or $2 million and approved the $215 million general fund. According to Pasadena fire chief of seven years Dennis Downs, the fire department last year ran 15,592 calls, 77 percent were for medical and 18 percent were actual fire calls. The total amount doesn’t include special events just 911 calls. “The cuts are causing us to reorganize,” said Downs “There were thirteen swore positions that are now being converted to nonsworn.” This means that the six positions on ambulances and seven inspectors are no longer sworn firefighters but civilians. “It is very important for us to have at least four firefighters per truck, one captain, one engineer, and two firefighters,” said Downs. Downs insisted that having a four-firefighter crew for

Community members can sign up to receive construction alerts via email or text message on the Authority’s website at www. foothillextension.org. Information is also available over the phone on the 24hour project information hotline - (855) 446-1160. The I-210 Bridge is scheduled to be completed in July 2012, in time for the alignment contractor

to start installing the track, utilities, systems and more. During the evenings of Tuesday, July 5 and Wednesday, July 6, work will require temporary closure of the Eastbound I-210 HOV and #1 freeway lanes from Rosemead Boulevard to Santa Anita Avenue. Closures will take place from 10:00 p.m. though 6:00 a.m. (a possible third night of the same closure may occur on Thursday, July 7). Minimal delays are expected. More information about the project and the Authority can be found at www.foothillextension.org.

At 23, Liela Avila has not only an exceptional voice, but the maturity, instinct, and talent of someone years her senior. Avila was born and raised in Los Angeles. Her father, John Avila, (Bass player for much loved band Oingo Boingo – you remember them) introduced Liela to music at the ripe old age of 5. Later, she attended the prestigious Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (LACHSA) where she studied jazz voice and stage techniques that truly set her apart from the crowd. We caught up with Liela last week and got a chance to hear her live. We don’t often say this but Liela is one artist to keep your eyes on. You’ll see what we mean when you hear her sing God Bless the Child This young woman is going places. In 2007 and 2008, Liela was selected out of 52 vocalists worldwide to compete in the Montreux Jazz competition where she placed 2nd. Liela has shared the stage with great artists such as Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole, Josh Groban, Patti Austin, and many more. Once again, we have to thank local businessman and all around nice bloke Dave Peterson for making us aware

Monrovia’s Fireworks

North Arcadia, Sensational, Secluded & Private

BY AMY LEONG

OPEN HOUSE July 10 at 1pm-4pm 1815 Oak View Lane Arcadia, Ca 91006 (North of Foothill Blvd.)

Rick Kershisi of Photoworks by Rick took this stunning image of the July 4 fireworks in Monrovia.

Opening with America’s favorite traditional tunes, Monrovia’s 4th of July Concert and Fireworks Show was presented at their very own public library. Music sponsored by Mayor Mary Ann and Corey Lutz, many were on their feet, dancing their heart out to music like “I’m a Believer” and “Safety Dance.” With hundreds in attendance, there was not a space left; and when nightfall came, there was not even a blade of grass left to be seen, as all was covered by lawn chairs, foldable tables, beach towels, and blankets. But even with the ex-

treme heat, the people’s spirit came alive in their patriotism singing the Star Spangled Banner. After America’s traditional Pledge of Allegiance, the lamp lights in the park turned off so that it now came to a place of complete darkness, other than the few vendors on the street waving glow sticks and the restaurants behind selling food. As the sound of the deep announcer’s voice came on, bright lights illuminated the sky with calcium, barium, copper, lithium, magnesium, and sodium - the essential chemical elements to spark the colors of fireworks and

were sponsored by Monrovia’s very own Old Town Merchants and Green Dot Corporation. Watching the blades of color form tornadoes and torpedoing in a downward spiral, spark out, and fizzle, the chemical elements was able to keep the color and interest in all who came. However, these ingredients may only last a moment, while family, friends, laughter, and smiles are truly the secret ingredients to making July 4th a day to celebrate America’s independence.

Arcadia Masonic Lodge Honors Law Enforcement

Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA) Chairman Betty White and honoree Slash, also a member of GLAZA’s board of trustees, with Jacob, the Columbian red-tailed boa, at Beastly Ball June 18th.

Rock icon Slash, celebrated as one of the world’s finest guitarists for his solo work, as well as Guns N’ Roses, received the inaugural Tom Mankiewicz Leadership Award from the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA) at the 41st annual Beastly Ball on Saturday, June 18, 2011, attended by close to 1,000 guests under the stars at the Los Angles Zoo. Slash, a member of GLAZA’s board of trustees, headed by the equally iconic Betty White, chairman, was honored as a

staunch supporter of the Los Angeles Zoo and an advocate for zoos around the world. Actress Stefanie Powers, a long-time friend of Mankiewicz’s, presented the award to Slash. GLAZA highlighted the zoo’s new Elephants of Asia habitat, with its residents Billy, Tina and Jewel, and elephant conservation efforts. Among the event guests were Betty White’s “hot in Cleveland” co-stars Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves. More than $1 million was raised.

Enjoying the Los Angeles Zoo Association Beastly Ball are Anna Poppelwell (who starred in “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader”), Peter Whitford and Abigail Urquhart. NOTE: Peter Whitford and his wife (Georgina, not pictured) and Abigail Urquhart are Pasadena residents.

Rescue Log

CALENDAR

uring the month of June, Sierra Madre Search and Rescue (SMSR) responded to 11 calls for assistance, including six in a single weekend. Missing Hikers, Monrovia Canyon Park: The Team was notified that the Monrovia Police Department was investigating a report of two hikers missing overnight in Monrovia Canyon Park. SMSR sent several search teams into the field and discovered the subjects’ footprints. Team members tracked the footprints to the subjects, who were in good condition. Fall Victim, Sturtevant Falls: SMSR responded to a report of a fall victim at Sturtevant Falls near Chantry Flat. The patient was treated by paramedics from the Sierra Madre Fire Department and the L.A. County Fire Department in addition to EMT-certified SMSR personnel. The Team evacuated the patient via litter wheel-out to an ambulance at Chantry Flat. Missing Hiker, Yosemite National Park: Yosemite National Park Search and Rescue requested the assistance of SMSR in the search for a missing hiker. SMSR team members departed Station 108 in the evening and drove through the night to be on hand for the following morning’s search. Team members were inserted by helicopter to search a remote section of the park and then airlifted out. The hiker has not yet been found. In June the latest class of SMSR probationary members completed their multi-day final field test and graduated to full member status, earning the right to wear the blue Mountain Rescue Association patch. Of nine prospective members who began the training last year, only four successfully completed the arduous process. New member training for SMSR members lasts 18 months and represents a serious commitment of time and effort. Probationary members must attend a training class one night per week, two team trainings per month, and a monthly team meeting. After an initial six-month training period they are expected to participate in field operations as well. Outside of official

Team activities, trainees spend much of their “free” time practicing and perfecting the skills they learn in class. Between scheduled trainings, operations, and practice, it is not uncommon for probationary members to devote 20 hours a week to the Team. The time commitment is immense but necessary to learn what it takes to function as an SMSR team member, including high-angle rescue, land navigation, radio operations, man-tracking, patient packaging, snow and alpine travel, helicopter operations, and swift water rescue. All these skills must be performed in extremes of heat and cold, at any time of the day or night. As the team motto says: “Anywhere in the wilderness that someone needs help…” After a short break, new team members begin the next phase of their training: three months of night school to earn their EMT certifications, a requirement for all Team members. The commitment to joining the team is a financial one as well. Probationary members must purchase much of their personal equipment themselves, spending on average $1,000-2,000 dollars during their first year with the Team. SMSR is currently recruiting for its next probationary members’ class. The only requirements for consideration are that candidates live within 20 minutes of Sierra Madre, be 25 to 55 years of age, and be physically fit and comfortable in the outdoors. And, of course, that they have a desire to work hard to help others. Visit the Team’s website for application information. For 60 years the all-volunteer Sierra Madre Search and Rescue team has been responding to calls for help in the local mountains and beyond. Funded entirely by private donations, SMSR provides a range of public programs on wilderness safety in addition to its search and rescue activities. The Team never charges for any of its services. For more information, including how to arrange a wilderness safety demonstration for your school or group, visit www.smsr.org.
