California State Assemblymember Anthony J. Portantino (D-La Canada Flintridge) introduced a bill which would make it a crime to openly carry an unloaded handgun – AB 144. Proponents of the practice of openly carrying handguns in public are expected to voice their belief in citizens’ “God-given right” to self defense in opposition to this bill Thursday in Pasadena. Supporters of open carry are expressing their distress at Portantino’s ban AB- 144, which passed the Assembly’s public safety committee last week. South Bay Open Carry has issued a “wanted” poster to publicize the event protesting the ban. Assemblyman Portantino, who has maintained all along that encouragement

from law enforcement has encouraged his decision to pen the bill, hopes that this open carry “loophole” is soon closed and that he stays out of the rhetorical debate.
In a phone interview on Wednesday, Portantino said that he feels that shoppers and those enjoying downtown life would rather not see weapons.
“I’m dissapointed about the rhetoric [regarding AB144]” Portantino said.

Firefighters found the body of a man who was electrocuted while trimming a tree at about 3 p.m. on Tuesday. Roque Valdez, 48, of Monrovia, was trimming trees at 2181 S. Goodall Avenue in Duarte. CalOSHA has started an investigation into the
accident as a matter of course. Power to the surrounding area was cut as crews worked to retrieve his body Tuesday afternoon. The cause of the accident appeared to be a cut limb which hit a power line.

(In Memory of Lou Carno)
Reminiscing with a Rooster Dorothy's Place
BY DOROTHY DENNE
-Photo by Terry Miller
A rooster crowed and memories flowed into my mind. I was walking through the backstretch of beautiful Santa Anita Race Track with horse trainer Lou Carno. Not exactly back home on the farm, but as close as I had been for a few years. It is impossible to physically go back to my childhood farms. Of the two in my memory, one was destroyed by strip-mining for coal and the other succumbed to development. I also have memories
from my aunt and uncle’s farm. It still exists to a degree but has been changed and remodeled to suit a gentlemanfarmer type and now sits at the edge of suburbancy. All this in the southeastern corner of Ohio. The rolling hills of that area would be somewhat dwarfed, but the beauty not diminished, by the giant majesty of the San Gabriel Mountains, at whose base sits Santa Anita and that crowing rooster. The horses there are
sleek, graceful Thoroughbreds trained for racing. Daddy’s and Uncle Earl’s were giant, broad-haunched farm horses suited for pulling plows, harrows and wagons. As I sat astraddle them, my short little legs were nearly horizontal to accommodate the horses’ breadth. There are memories of roosters, too. When we lived on the farm that was later lost to strip-mining, our closest neighbors were the Hamiltons. To get to their house, we climbed through our rail fence, tumbled down a hill and climbed through another rail fence into their yard. Then we faced the greatest danger. We really had to watch out for their Bantam roosters. They were mean-spirited little devils who would flop you for no good reason. I hated them. I bore my share of bruises and scratches from them. I recommended to Mrs. Hamilton that we eat them for Sunday dinners. She said they were too tough. I’ve since given up riding horses. The short little legs would neither stretch horizontal nor hoist me up there in the first place. I do occasionally eat some chicken, but that sends me on an ethical guilt trip, not to mention the padding it adds to my hips. I guess both the horses and chickens benefit from my changes. Me? I’m just happy to let a rooster make me a little reminiscent now and then.

SAN GABRIEL VALLEY
BY BILL DUNN I am a fan of the latest culinary craze, the food truck. I have always been a fan of food trucks, even before they became the stop du jour for the young crowd and the terminally hip. The current version of food trucks, or roach coaches as they were once called, are not the ones of my youth. Today, if you approached a food truck and it had the word roach in its name, it would probably be called “Le Roach Coach” and offer up a gourmet variety of roaches on mini corn tortillas with 10 types of dipping sauces. While patient zero in this movement is said to be the Kogi Truck, which serves a Korean/Mexican hybrid taco, I believe that it really took off with the TV show “The Great Food Truck Race.” Regardless of which popularized it, the cork is out of the bottle and the genie has taken over. The entrepreneurs who run these trucks have harnessed every bit of technology that is available out there in order to meet the increasing demands of their ravenous public. Foodies follow their every move on their web sites, Twitter, and of course Facebook, creating lines of fans waiting and wanting to buy every little tidbit they offer. This following, the sense of community and the money that they generate is usually something that most cities want to
court. That is, unless you are the City of Monrovia. As I read in this paper last week, Monrovia is being sued by a collective of food truck vendors over the City’s ban of food trucks. The group is called SoCal Mobile Food Vendors Association or SoCalMFVA, a name that nobody seemed to put much thought into. If they wanted to be as innovative as the food they serve, they should have a name like Friendly Order of Outdoor Diners or FOOD for short, but what is done is done. Anyway, to put it in a nutshell, Monrovia’s City Council, in its attempt to protect their favorite lunch & dinner haunts, has banned all mobile culinary eateries. Okay, I don’t know where the city council eats, but they seem to be throwing out the baby with the bath water. That or the good food with what is more times than not mediocre. As was demonstrated in Rosemead and Arcadia a few weeks ago, the synergy between a city and the food truckers can be beneficial for both. In Rosemead’s case, the two combined forces to raise funds for a planned Veterans’ Memorial in that city. A percentage of the proceeds raised went to the city fund during the 2 day event. It was a win-win-win situation. The vendors, the City, and the public. Having gone to that one myself I can testify to the large number of people in attendance and to the
quality of the food. Living in the nearby City of Temple, who has long suffered from Monrovia envy, as recently witnessed by the newly formed Farmer’s Market on Sunday mornings next to TC City Hall, they may want to jump on the food truck band wagon. Maybe a couple of breakfast-esque type of trucks on Sunday mornings to go along with the Farmer’s Market? Maybe throw some trucks around the “Concerts in the Park” series they do during the summer months with a percentage going to our schools? Why wait for summer? Start now and designate one Friday or Saturday night a month as a food in the park night. Hell they should take over the long dormant corner of Las Tunas Drive & Rosemead Boulevard and make it into a food truck park. It would be a vast improvement over what they have currently planned and a whole lot cheaper, but they would have to do it now. I know that city councils never move fast and “now” usually doesn’t happen unless they are saying “no” to something. The only thing we can hope for is that somebody here in the SGV, besides the City of Rosemead, is smart enough to strike while the iron is hot. If not Temple City, how about San Gabriel? Alhambra? Move on it now before Monrovia figures out that they’ve made a mistake.

It’s Very Clear – Our Love for Gershwin Here to Stay
Attention Business Owners Free Initial Consultation!
Save time and money by organizing your book
Reliable and Affordable with over 15 years of experience
BY BILL PETERS Hershey Felder wears a wig to make him look more like George Gershwin, whom he recreates in his one-man acting-singingpiano-playwright role in the current production at the Pasadena Playhouse, “George Gershwin Alone”. To me Felder appears closer in looks to Danny Thomas, but the looks are not important here. The music and the tale of the life of one of America’s most famous composers who died at age 38 after writing thousands of tunes used in Broadway shows and Hollywood movies; three European-style classical music works that each contain a decidedly US twist of jazz; and an opera, makes Gershwin, the man, and his work of lasting interest. Felder’s show is equal parts bio and music. Felder comes onto a stage that is sparsely decorated with large-scale sheet music; a chair, table and lamp; a cluttered desk and chair; a mirror; and a sketch of Gershwin. He melds in and out of character as he tells stories of Gershwin’s professional and family life, then at the piano demonstrates some of the technical features of the Gershwin compositions and tells how the music blended with his brother, Ira’s, lyrics before heading into Gershwin’s memorable tunes. Felder’s script includes family homilies, stories gleaned apparently from close friends and family about his relationship with pianist-composer Kay Swift,
(a successful composer in her own right), his difficult encounters with critics, and other difficulties. I found
bank teller that I would see a show about George Gershwin. He had never heard the name. I suspect many
... at the end of the show, Felder did a sing-along of Gershwin tunes that displayed the lasting popularity of his songs. some of the hypotheses at least questionable. Although “Porgy and Bess” remains controversial as to its standing as “real” opera (as opposed to “folkopera”) Felder accurately quotes from two critics who disliked “Porgy and Bess” and dismissed the effort as ingenuous on several levels. But there were others who praised the effort that were not mentioned. Robert Garland of the New York World Telegram in his opening night review called it a “modern masterpiece”. Likewise, Isaac Goldberg, critic for the magazine Stage, called the music “a dynamic, lusty form.” Both these critics recognized “Porgy and Bess” as an opera. I did like the story about the RKO studio janitor who wanted to take Gershwin’s picture at a studio piano. Under questioning from Gershwin, it turned out the janitor had no clue who the famous composer was. Just the day before I attended the show, I told a
of the younger generation might not be familiar with either the name or the music. Still, at the end of the show, Felder did a singalong of Gershwin tunes that displayed the lasting popularity of his songs. No words needed to be supplied as the audience sang “Embraceable You”, “Our Love is Here to Stay” and others easily and with enthusiasm, including three who were called by Felder to come forward from the audience to participate in a solo. Felder has a pleasant, but not strong voice. His piano style is somewhat loose which keeps things casual and tuneful. He did turn to sheet music to perform a portion of Gershwin’s Concerto in F and some numbers from “Porgy and Bess” but otherwise he was at ease with partial or full hearings of “Swanee”, “I Got Rhythm”, “Embrace Me”, “S’Wonderful”, “But Not for Me”, “Fascinatin’ Rhythm” and “The Man
I Love”. His performance of “Rhapsody in Blue” was not a stand-out, the over-use of pedal marring clarity. The clever use of original recordings within the show added authenticity. Jolson’s “Swanee”, a two million-plus selling recording, was matched perfectly on-stage by Felder. A bit of the Paul Whiteman recording of “Rhapsody in Blue” (with Gershwin at the piano, I think) was a nice touch. Felder has an engaging stage personality and conveys Gershwin’s evidently stiff personality in an understandable way. Felder’s relaxed manner during the sing-along dragged the full house along with him and left us leaving the Pasadena Playhouse singing the songs that made the show famous. Although the show is said to be 90 minutes long without interruption, Sunday night’s show was two hours and 10 minutes, but as you might expect, Felder’s personality and the music kept it speeding along. You might say, “It’s Very Clear, Our Love is Here to Stay”— when it comes to George Gershwin’s music. “George Gershwin Alone” is at the Pasadena Playhouse through May 8. Showtimes are 8:00p.m. Tuesday through Friday; 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Saturday; 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Sunday. Ticket prices range from $39 to $69 with premium seating available at $100.

Los Fabulocos will be the featured band during Monrovia’s Cinco de Mayo celebration which, ironically on May 1. I was lucky enough to hear Kid Ramos’ amazing blues style on their first CD along with his obvious Chicano roots before we spoke. The 2008 CD is eclectic in its mix of blues and Tex/Mex styles, zydeco and country if you can believe that! But it works. In fact, it really is almost ridiculous to label their music other that the way Kid Ramos said it Tuesday as we spoke on the phone. “It’s music for the people…Just
good Blue Collar music, man.” “It’s Americana music with roots from the late 50’s to the 60’s” he added. Los Fabulocos, Chicanos all, is the latest - and musically all encompassing - group to emerge from East Los Angeles, home of America’s largest Mexican-American community and ground zero for the musical and cultural revolution called Chicano Rock that started decades ago and remains ongoing and as vibrant today. Los Fabulocos’ label (www.DeltaGroveProductions.com), the independent blues and roots music Delta Groove Records calls the group’s sound, “CaliMex” - music that fixes a strong Southern California groove into musical DNA produced from a confluence of a Mexican heritage, a Mexican-American upbringing and exposure to one of the most musically creative centers in the country. Home and neighborhood to Los Fabulocos. “We have the same musical heritage. We look out for each other,” says drummer Mike Molina. Many different streams of music ebb and flow within the ranks of Los Fabulocos as a glance at the titles on the group’s first CD will show. From rock standards to recreations of material from classic Mexican cancionero singers, with nods to Doug Sahm, Lloyd Price, Rockin’ Dopsie and their rock’n’roll / blues vocabularies, Added to this mix are Los Fabulocos’ own originals, again drawn
from all these areas. Singing in English and Spanish, Los Fabulocos travel the rock, blues and Mexican routes, always laying down a good time groove. Fused together it becomes, as one critic noted “a blues barbeque at a Cinco de Mayo block party.” Los Fabulocos would not disagree. David “ Kid” Ramos said he kind of got stuck with the name Kid Ramos as he was always the youngest in each band he played with, so the name just stuck. When his friend Jesse( Jesus Cuvevas ) asked him to join the band he also “needed a bajo sexto player so he learned how to play. It’s tuned differently to a guitar and very demanding and difficult to play, like a bass on the bottom strings and treble in the top strings…“You gotta play it like a MAN…” he joked. But the CD’s only reveal part of Los Fabulocos. Seen live “the band can rock apparently effortlessly and endlessly. A six hour gig (with breaks, of course) is no problem. “said publicist Jerry Brown. “We don’t have a set list before we go onstage,” says guitarist Kid Ramos. “We react to the audience…” We just “live life to the fullest” said Ramos. These audiences are, like the group’s music, also diverse. From Whittier Blvd, East LA’s most celebrated street, to the autobahns of Germany, audiences welcome Los Fabulocos. The band is particularly popular on the blues festival circuits in Europe, having made several trips there. “They love our music in Germany, the blues and all that,” says Molina. “I feel like a missionary out there.” Ramos said that Norway was where some of the best audiences seem to be in Europe for some unknown reason. Los Fabulocos are missionaries of a sort, for

Second Amendment Group Plans Thursday Protest in Pasadena Continued from page 1
This poster was created by the Open Carry group before IxTapa uninvited the group.
“The next step is to push forward and get this bill through. Do what law abiding citizens and law enforcement across
California wants.” Portantino was disturbed by some comments posted on the California Open
Carry Movement Facebook page in reaction to his bill as well as the “wanted” poster. He also pointed out that references to the Arizona shooting of Gabrielle Giffords should be avoided. Here are a few of the recent Facebook comments: 1-Unfortunately for politicians to change their tune on issues such as this something has got to happen to their family or largest supporters (Money). I am not condoning anything, trust me I wish no ill will to them or their family, but that... is how the game works, family and money are the largest voices that they hear. We can hold signs and so forth but it does nothing to persuade them to move away from their position. 2-It’s not necessary until someone like the crazed lunatic that shot Congresswoman Giffords walks into the same store. Portantino is a disgrace to this country. He is a traitor to the Constitution. 3- Wouldn’t it be cosmically karmic if Mr. Portantino
Silence is Golden: Speaking Out Without Speaking
was beaten into a pulp and left just sentient enough to realize the error of his ways? Maybe he’d become like a reverse Jim Brady. But unfortunately people like him never seem to become the victims of their own ideologies In response to Mr. Portantino’s “…you don’t need a weapon to buy a cheeseburger,” Open Carry Movement supporters referenced a recent McDonald’s shooting in San Jose, the Chili’s shooting in San Leandro, and vari-
ous other cases of gun violence at restaurants. “They can have my money, wallet, cell phone, and car keys. But I travel more often than not with my wife and kids. That’s why I carry.” “Guns on the hips belonged in the wild west days perhaps but not in Paseo Colorado.”Portantino said. According to the website, South Bay Open Carry plans to protest AB-144 by wearing their sidearms in Pasadena’s Old Town

cate to the outside world. The cries of the victims go silent. Therefore, on April 25th thousands around the world will go silent, to speak out without speaking. The non-profit organization Invisible Children is asking each participant to raise $25 to bring awareness to the cause. The organization is calling for participants to fast from speaking in solidarity by living differently for the victims of the LRA. The silence will begin on the 24th of April at 7pm and end at 8pm on the 25th. On April 25th, thousands around the world will go silent, to speak out without speaking.

A new meaning behind the number 25 has students and young adults ablaze for something meaningful. This year on April 24th and April 25th, thousands of people will begin and end a 25-hour silence to bring awareness of the Lord’s Resistance Army. For 25 years, the Lord’s Resistance Army has been committing terrible atrocities against innocent people in central Africa. After the LRA was driven out of northern Uganda in 2005, they have been occupying some of the most remote and isolated territory in the entire region. They are attacking communities that have virtually no way to communi-
Thursday.They had originally planned on meeting at a restaurant, ixTapa. According to organizers, they then plan on walking the streets of Old Town Pasadena carrying their weapons (which are not allowed to be loaded). However, the current law says they may carry rounds with them. The Los Angeles chapter of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and other groups plan their own
visible Children will host two-hour events where participants can all break the silence together. At the events participants will see new videos from Invisible Children, hear from a Ugandan speaker, listen to live music from a band, write letters to Congress and experience the community of others joining you in the fight for peace to see this war to an end. The nearest location to end the silence is at: J Lounge venue located at, 1119 S Olive St, Los Angeles, CA 90015. In a society just cluttered with noise, I will be curious to see what the participants learn from really listening and observing everything around them.

Recycle Used Oil & Filters! Do you change your car’s motor oil? Did you know that used oil and oil filters are recyclable? Used oil can be re-refined or processed into new motor oil. Currently only 46% of used motor oil is being recycled, which means 20 million gallons may be illegally entering California’s waterways via stormwater systems posing a great risk to the environment. One gallon of used oil can contaminate a million gallons of drinking water; polluting our waterways and threaten fish and aquatic life. Prevent pollution; recycle used motor oil and filters!

Second Amendment Group to Protest Portantino Bill Continued from page 7 protest against the groups’ actions. South Bay Open Carry is publicizing the dinner with their “wanted” poster of Portantino that says: “More of this (protecting the ones we love) and Less of This” with a picture of Anthony Portantino as the author of the bill. Existing law, subject to certain exceptions, makes it an offense to carry a concealed handgun on the person or in a vehicle, as specified. Existing law provides that firearms carried openly in belt holsters are not concealed within the meaning of those provisions. This bill (AB 144) would establish an exemption to the offense for transportation of a firearm between certain areas where the firearm may be carried concealed, or loaded, or openly carried unloaded, as specified. Existing law, subject to certain exceptions, makes it an offense to carry a loaded firearm on the person or in a vehicle while in any public place or on any public street in an incorporated city or in any public place or on any public street in a prohibited area of unincorporated territory. The bill would, subject to exceptions, make it a misdemeanor to openly carry an unloaded handgun on the person in specified public areas. By creating a new offense, AB 144 would impose a state-mandated local program as well as making conforming and non-substantive technical changes. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. We requested information from the group SBOC and received the following email: “We are a Second
Amendment organization committed to defending ourselves and our families. We will not be intimidated by the Brady Campaign or any other left wing group seeking to take away our God given right to self defense. South Bay Open Carry is a movement of likeminded law-abiding citizens and family members who strongly believe in our Constitutional Republic form of government. SBOC’s focus is the Second Amendment, the amendment that protects the First and Fourth Amendments. Our goal is concealed weapons permits for all law abiding citizens in California. We will continue to legally open carry in all areas that do not prohibit the practice. We will continue to oppose groups like the Brady Campaign who want all forms of self defense eliminated leaving law abiding citizens at the mercy of violent criminals. Our focus is firearms education and safety and adherence to the law. South Bay Open Carry” Pasadena Police will be keeping the peace as always, but no special permits have been taken out for a formal protest. In the past, the organization has held similar meetings without incident. AB 144 passed the Assembly Public Safety Committee and will be heard next month in Assembly Appropriations (because there are potential state costs) and then it would go to the full Assembly floor. After that, it would go to the Senate side where it would be put through the same process again. Sometime at the end of summer - following approval by both the Assembly and Senate, it would go to the Governor for signature, hopefully in the fall, according to Assemblyman Portantino. The NRA posted the following comment on their website:
Assembly Bill 144 has passed the Assembly Public Safety Committee. It will next appear in the Assembly Appropriations Committee. Please contact members of that committee to and urge them to stand up for the law-abiding gun owners of California and oppose AB 144. Removing a law that criminals do not follow is not stopping gun violence, it is just making more innocent people susceptible to gun violence. - NRA Members’ Council of California The South Bay Open Carry lobby was informed at the 11th hour that they were not welcome at IxTapa as originally planned and therefore the group issued a new “Wanted Poster” replacing Anthony Portantino’s image with the Brady Campaign logo claiming the long established Brady Campaign is “dishonest, misguided” and uses “bullying tactics….” The poster goes on to say … “The Brady Campaign has frightened IxTapa into cancelling our dinner and now IxTapa will lose the business of 200 plus pro 2nd Amendment customers. Shame on the Brady’s…We’re gonna have a great time and meet anyway. Bring your friends and we will spend our money in the rest of Old Town Pasadena. The Brady Campaign will be protesting with their silly signs and they will not spend a dime in Pasadena. Do not stoop to their level.” “We will assemble at or near the IxTapa Cantina restaurant without blocking the sidewalk. From there groups will assemble to stroll eastbound on Colorado Blvd to find eateries and shopping opportunities where we will spend the money we would spent at IxTapa Cantina.” According to organizers, the Open Carry protest will begin at 7p.m. Counter protestors including the Brady Campaign vow to peacefully protest SouthBayOpen Carry.
Pasadena Draws a Line and Says ‘Stop!’ The city of Pasadena has a simple, clear message for drivers: Stop Before the Line. The city’s Transportation Department was awarded a public education grant—from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration—to remind drivers to stop their vehicles before the double
white, crosswalk lines. Common knowledge? Perhaps. But in 2009, Pasadena ranked as second worst in California cities its size for pedestrians killed and injured, following Berkeley. The city’s Transportation staff realized they needed to reach out to drivers to get them on their side. As Traffic Engineer Joaquin Siques said, “It is
not a case of drivers versus pedestrians, because the fact is, every time motorists step out of their cars, they become pedestrians. In this fight, everyone wins.” Traffic engineers agree that stopping before the line is critical to the safety of Pasadena’s pedestrians. Those extra two feet make all the difference.

Arcadia Tree Sitters Get More Support
Six Seats Available on City Commissions

an 11-acre pristine woodland in Arcadia. They were trying to prevent an injustice according to supporters. Representatives of the newly formed Urbanwild Network assembled at the Los Angeles County Criminal Justice Center located at 210 West Temple Street in Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 19. LA County Dept. of Public Works (DPW) destroyed the last remaining transitional woodland habitat at the mouth of Big Santa Anita Canyon on January 12, which triggered a countywide outcry. Four tree sitters were arrested trying to prevent the destruction of the once 11-acre oldgrowth forest in Arcadia. Although their efforts were peaceful, they were forcefully removed and the Los Angeles District Attorney, Steve Cooley, is seeking criminal charges on Friday, April 22, which is Earth Day. “The explosive population growth in LA has led to very few remaining wild open spaces. Residents of
these communities deeply treasure these gems as evidenced by the community of Arcadia, which was devastated by the destruction of the Arcadia Woodlands. 250 old growth oaks and sycamores in the last remaining flatland woodlands in the San Gabriel Valley were unnecessarily bulldozed by the DPW for a sediment pit. DPW had other options that made more sense. Despite heroic efforts by the Arcadia 4 and legal battles from the community the DPW chose destruction anyway. Countywide there are several more eco-systems in imminent jeopardy. I urge everyone to get informed
and lend support to Urban Wild Network’s efforts to protect these areas,” said DarlyHannah. “The people of Arcadia and LA County (including myself) watched in horror when we saw images of an amazingly beautiful example of our natural heritage, Arcadia Woodlands, being destroyed by DPW’s heavy equipment,” said Begley. Hundreds of oaks and sycamores were destroyed as part of a Los Angeles County Public Works Department flood-control project to clear the land for sediment. The action of Public Works and arrest of the four who tried to save the trees gained national attention. The Arcadia 4 - John Quigley, 50, of Glendale; Julia Jaye Posin, 23, of Venice Beach; Travis Jochimsen, 28, of Lancaster; and Andrea Bowers, 45, of Los Angeles - pleaded not guilty to one count each of trespassing and obstructing a police officer in Alhambra Superior Court on March 23. The defendants rejected an offer of community service and payment of restitution from the DA’s office and will appear in court later this week for their pre-trial.
Residents are encouraged to apply; applications due May 31 Temple Citians wanting to get more involved in their community can start by volunteering on a city commission. The deadline for applications is May 31, 6 p.m. Three seats are open on the Planning Commission, which has decision-making authority on a variety of development proposals. Commissioners advise on programs, policies and issues relating to planning, development and land use regulation. The commission meets the second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. Three seats are also open on the Parks and Rec-
reation Commission, which makes recommendations on the development and oversight of the City’s parks facilities and recreational programming. That commission meets the third Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. Both commissions act in an advisory capacity to the City Council by studying, discussing and recommending solutions on issues of importance to the Temple City community. Applications to fill the vacancies can be downloaded from the City’s website (www.templecity.us) and obtained during normal busi-
ness hours from City Hall, 9701 Las Tunas Dr. Applicants must be a registered voter and resident of Temple City. Those selected serve without compensation for two-year terms.

been a terrible accident in front of Temple City High School. At least one fatality and numerous serious injuries. Ambulances arrive, police and fire personnel attend to the wounded and request a medi-vac helicopter to transport the most severely injured. It all looked very real. Luckily, it was not! Life’s lessons are best learned through experience. Unfortunately, when the target audience is teens and the topic is drinking and texting while driving, experience is not the teacher of choice. The Every 15 Minutes Program offers real-life experience without the reallife risks. This emotionally charged program, entitled Every 15 Minutes, is an event designed to dramatically instill teenagers with the potentially dangerous consequences of drinking alcohol and texting while driving. This powerful
program will challenge students to think about drinking, texting while driving, personal safety, and the responsibility of making mature decisions when lives are involved. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s dept. along with paramedics from AMR and the Los Angles Fire Dept. reenacted a major traffic accident for students at Temple City High School on Thursday morning. The “reality TV” style of getting the message across to teens was indeed effective. The looks on the teens’ faces said it all. Shock and disbelief, even though the majority of the kids knew it was a staged accident. Each year thousands of teenagers die as a result of DUI and now texting and cell phone abuse is another contributing factor in teenage accidents.

Doo Dah Parade will romp through East Pasadena on Saturday, April 30 with Lots of Sierra Madre Entries Last year, dozens of inventive, if zany, art cars and floats accompanied a legion of frolickers past the mom-n-pop shops along East Pasadena’s shady tree-lined streets. They will be joined this year by Grand Marshal Ron Stivers, of Poo Bah Records, and many first-time entries including the League of Steam, Conehead Rocket Sled, Hippie Cream, The Iceland Queen, Rancho Talavera, combined bands of the 35th Dragoon Guards, Mile High Bed, Cheesus Chrust Pizza Company, 2011 Doo Dah Queen Red Rosie, Flying Baby High Dive, and the Ladies Auxiliary for Cultural Enrichment, et.al. Known as the twisted sister of the conventional Rose Parade, the Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade began as a grassroots event in 1978 to gain national attention for its eccentric and, often, irreverent satire. The parade which has spawned numerous off-beat replicants across the country was named by Readers Digest as “America’s Best Parade,” and was recently featured in the book 50 Places You Must Visit Before You Die! This year’s spectacle will see the return of such wildly diverse entries as a fleet of motorized Kinetic Pastry Science Mobile Muffins, Captain McHogwash’s Amazing Chundra,

Rafael Bejarano aboard Juniper Pass Beats Chantal Sutherland aboard Imponente Purse in race number 10 … the last of the season. – Photos by Terry Miller
Juniper Pass, finishing strongest of all on the extreme outside, bested Imponente Purse by a mere bob of a head Sunday to ultimately conclude the mile-and-three-quarter turf journey of Santa Anita’s historic Grade II, $150,000 San Juan Capistrano Handicap that consumed 2:47.74. With Celtic New Year another one-half length back in the driving finish, it was one of the closest results in the rich 72-year-history of the marathon that annually completes Santa Anita’s racing season. An on-track crowd of 18,018 thrilled to the blanket finish. It was the tightest in the distance fixture since Red Bishop nudged Special Price by a like margin in 1995, which came two years after Kotashaan’s memorable nose victory over Bien Bien. Sunday’s result provided jockey Rafael Bejarano with his second successive victory in the marathon classic after he had won in 2010 aboard Bourbon Bay as well as in 2008 with Big Booster. Winning trainer Ray Bell heaped credit on Bejarano for the outcome. “It’s like Bobby Jones said about competitive golf,” commented Bell. “Jones said, ‘It’s not the length of the course they play on; it’s the distance between
their ears that matters.’” Directing the second choice at 3-1 behind 5-2 favorite Haimish Hy in a field of nine, Bejarano settled the 4-year-old son of Lemon Drop Kid into fifth place early while tracking the leisurely early pace dictated by 11-1 Power Series. “The pace was a concern for me in the beginning,” Bejarano said. “I was wandering a bit in the beginning, but I wanted to make sure I was on the outside and not lose too much ground on the turns.” Recent British-import Power Series took the marathoners through pedestrian early fractions that included a half-mile in 48.97, six furlongs in 1:13.39 and a mile in 1:40.91. “I got more comfortable with my horse,” Bejarano continued, “then I saw the No. 6 (Imponente Purse with Chantal Sutherland in the saddle) make a good move from the threeeighths pole. She (Sutherland) looked like she had a lot of horse so I decided to follow her. “As soon as I hit the stretch, I let her make the first move. I made the second move and it worked out because my horse always shows me a good kick in the end. He definitely improved on the grass today.” Juniper Pass had come into the San Juan following
his first stakes victory, but it wasn’t over Santa Anita’s grass surface as had been scheduled. The bay colt owned by Betty and Robert G. Irvin won the Grade II San Luis Rey Stakes at 1 ½ miles after wet conditions had prompted its move to a sloppy main track. Favored Haimish Hy, who had beaten thirdplace Juniper Pass by a neck when victorious in the Grade I Hollywood Derby last November at 1 ¼ miles on turf, never made an impression on Sunday while failing to get closer than sixth. He wound up seventh. Juniper Pass paid $8.80, $5.40 and $3.40. Brazilian-bred Imponente Purse returned $12.60 and $6. Celtic New Year, handled by Victor Espinoza, paid $6.20 to show. The victory by Juniper Pass was worth $90,000 to the Irvins. The winning purse boosted the career earnings of the $170,000 sales purchase to $284,380 from an overall record of 4-1-2 in 12 races. With the local racing circuit moving to Hollywood Park on Thursday, Santa Anita will operate as a simulcast center until live racing returns to The Great Race Place in late September.

Camp Shi’ini focuces on Native American Folklore
For 64 years, Camp Shi’ini provides active and entertaining summer activities for boys and girls. Teaching campers about Native American folklore through interactive and action-packed activities in one of the few remaining primitive areas in the greater Pasadena area, the camp runs five weeks each summer. Shi’ini, pronounced “Shee-nee,” is a Navajo word meaning “Summer People.” Daily events include: horseback riding, fishing, canoeing, archery, bear hunting (not real bears), athletics, hiking, games, crafts, swimming, and an extraordinary monthlong treasure hunt adventure. While at camp, children are
broken into age appropriate groups of 12 campers (each group has 2 counselors, meaning a 6:1 ratio which as one of the best in SGV.) Each group functions as a separate unit throughout the day. Due to Camp Shi’ini’s limited number of campers, a wide variety of activities can be offered with individual supervision, including Indian lore, cookouts, nature hikes, and unique games and sports. Senior and junior counselors are assigned to each group. Senior counselors are hired on the basis of: ideals, college records, maturity, experience, occupation, driving records, and the ability to understand children.
Junior counselors are hired on the basis of: leadership, character, attentiveness, dependability, and overall experience working with kids. Counselors pick up campers from their homes in new, seat-belt equipped vans each morning and returned home between 3:50-4:40 PM. (Each driver undergoes extensive safe-driver training and must earn a CA Commercial Class B License.) Arroyo Seco Park (located on Stoney Drive in South Pasadena) affords the perfect atmosphere for Camp Shi’ini’s activities.

Lives Remembered Veteran Trainer Lou Carno
Christopher Bruce Gordon 1947 - 2011
Christopher Bruce Gordon, a native of Sierra Madre, CA, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Wednesday, April 13, 2011, after battling cancer. He is survived by his sisters Diana Lindsay (John) and Deborah Reinert (Denny), and his brother Jeff Gordon, as well as twelve nieces/nephews/great nieces. His parents Anneliese and Robert Gordon and Brother Douglas Gordon predeceased him. Chris was born on November 20, 1947. He graduated from Pasadena High School in 1965, and attended Pasadena City College, Cal State L.A., and UCLA before graduating from U.C. Berkeley in 1971. He was subsequently awarded a master’s equivalent certificate for ministry training from Christian Associates International. He
built upon his class hours of Greek with a 1,000 hour independent study to attain an intermediate proficiency level in Koine Greek linguistics. While he did not formally enter the ministry, Chris’s adulthood was defined by his Christian faith. His love for Jesus Christ inspired him to live his life as a shining example to others. He was known for his humility and caring nature, as well as his knowledge and intense interest in all facets of Christianity. He was an office manager for a property investment company, a carpenter, and a handyman, and most recently taught English as a Second Language in the Los Angeles School District. Hobbies included surfing, guitar, singing, biking, hiking, sailing, writing, photography, and drawing. He wrote and drew
a cartoon strip in the Sierra Madre News in his youth, and was a published writer/ artist in a Christian national magazine. As a member of Arcadia-Hoyt Curtis Club of Toastmasters’ International, he represented the club in several area speech contests. Matthew 25:21 “Well done, good and faithful servant!” sums up Chris’s life. He will be deeply missed. A long-term member of Bethany Church of Sierra Madre, Chris’s memorial service will be held there on Saturday, April 23, at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Wes Ringer’s ministry (#285607) at Wycliffe Bible Translators (www.Wycliffe.org/Give/ WaystoGive.aspx). Online condolences may be sent to email@example.com.
Lou Carno passed away at 5 a.m. Friday at the age of 90, according to his wife of 23 years, Kathy. Known on the backstretches of Chicago and California as “The Silver Fox,” Carno was seldom without his trademark cigar and biting wit. Carno was best known as the trainer of Victory Beauty, a hard hitting gelding who won 30 races, including eight stakes for Carno. Purchased for just $3,500, Victory Beauty won races at Bay Meadows, Golden Gate Fields, Tanforan and every major racetrack in Southern California. At age 8, in 1964, Victory Beauty won the Escondido Handicap at Del Mar and a minor stakes south of the border, the Agua Caliente Gold Cup, which prompted Carno to note, “He’s now won at every racetrack he’s ever run at.”

Victory Beauty would make history in 1969, when at 13, he became the oldest horse to ever win at Santa Anita. He retired that year with earnings of $203,491. Carno also garnered considerable acclaim as the trainer of stakes winning Caterman, who was disqualified from victory in the 1981 Hollywood Gold Cup. Carno, who turned 90 on March 29, retired from training four years ago. “He never stopped loving his horses,” said Kathy Carno. “They were a very important part of his life and when he left the track it was the hardest thing he ever did.
The reason he retired was that he was having so much trouble with his legs and the medication he was taking was affecting him mentally. When we got him off of the medication, he was 100 percent mentally again and was perfectly normal. “He was in an assisted living facility in Monrovia the past two years because he was immobile and had to be in a wheelchair. He was at peace with everything and he died with a smile on his face.” Carno is survived by three children, Robert, Sharon and Richard, as well as two step children, Jason and Jeremy.

For the period of Sunday, April 10, through Saturday, April 16, the Police Department responded to 894 calls for service of which 112 required formal investigations. The following is a summary report of the major incidents handled by the Department during this period.
Sunday, April 10: At about 6:40 p.m., officers
and paramedics responded to an injury traffic collision in the 600 block of West Duarte Road. The investigation revealed that two 16-year-old females (one Asian and one of unknown race) were crossing Duarte Road on foot when they were struck by a vehicle traveling westbound on Duarte Road. The Asian female died as a result of the injuries sustained in the collision, while the other female was transported and treated at Huntington Memorial Hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the vehicle was a 19-year-old, Asian male. Around 4:00 p.m., officers were dispatched to Arcadia Methodist Hospital in regards to a cold battery report. The victim, a 20-year-old Hispanic female, stated that on Saturday, April 9th at approximately 2:00 p.m., she was walking home from the mall westbound on Huntington Drive when she was assaulted by four unknown Hispanic females in their early 20’s.
Monday, April 11:
Shortly after 7:30 a.m., officers responded to the 700 block of Duarte Road in reference to a deceased person. The subject was an 82-year-old White male who had apparently passed away in his sleep from natural causes. Shortly after 10:00 p.m., units responded to Phoenix Chinese Cuisine, 1108 South Baldwin Avenue, in regards to an unknown disturbance inside. Upon arrival, officers were advised that an intoxicated White male in his 30’s had just left after yelling and harassing customers inside the location. Officers located the subject in front of 1020 South Baldwin Avenue. While being questioned, a check in the records system revealed he had an outstanding warrant and was then placed under arrest for both the warrant and for being drunk in public.
Tuesday, April 12:
About 2:00 a.m., units responded to a 911 call received by Sierra Madre PD regarding an auto burglary in progress. The location was the 1400 block of Caballero Road, which is in Arcadia’s jurisdiction. The reporting party advised Dispatch
that he had seen two male subjects break into a vehicle in front of his home and then flee in a white or silver pickup truck. While conducting an area search for the vehicle, the responding officer observed a white pickup truck, occupied by two males, turn abruptly from northbound to southbound Santa Anita at Orange Grove, with a Sierra Madre police car behind it. A traffic stop was conducted. The investigation revealed stolen property and tools commonly used in the commission of a burglary. Both 19-year-old Hispanic men were arrested for auto burglary and possession of burglary tools. Just before 7:00 p.m., officers responded to the Arcadia Police station lobby in regards to a missing person report. The missing person was a 78-yearold Hispanic male with dementia who had just moved to Arcadia. A critical missing person’s alert was disseminated via BOLOs (Be On The Look Out), Medic Alert Center and Nixel. At approximately 10:00 p.m. the man arrived in good health at a family member’s residence in Burbank.
Wednesday, April 13: Between 2:00 a.m. and 7:30
a.m., an auto burglary occurred in the 500 block of Vaquero Road. Unknown suspect(s) shattered the right front passenger window and stole the vehicle’s DMV registration certificate and an auto insurance card. Shortly before 11:00 a.m., units were dispatched to the Westfield Shopping Center, 400 South Baldwin Avenue, in regards to a report by mall security of a suspicious male walking through several jewelry stores. He resembled a suspect who had stolen jewelry from the Ben Bridge jewelry store in the Westfield Topanga mall. The subject was questioned by officers and a records check revealed an outstanding misdemeanor burglary warrant. The 32-yearold Hispanic male was placed under arrest for the warrant.
Thursday, April 14:
Around 12:06 p.m., officers were dispatched to Rancho High School, 150 South Third Avenue, in regard to a student with marijuana on the property. An investigation revealed that a 17-year-old Hispanic male handed a piece of folded paper to another student, a 13-year-old Hispanic male, who was on his way to the bathroom. The folded paper contained marijuana. The 17-year-old suspect immediately left the classroom when
the marijuana was discovered and fled on foot westbound. An area and residence check were conducted, but the suspect was not located. A followup investigation is being conducted. Between 10:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., a residential burglary occurred in the 100 block of West Santa Anita Terrace. Unknown suspect(s) entered the home through an open window, ransacked the house and stole jewelry, cash and a wallet from the master bedroom for a reported loss of about $34,000.
Friday, April 15:
Shortly after midnight, an Asian female victim arrived at home in the 1100 block of South Third Avenue. She was walking to her door with her 2-year-old son when she was accosted by a Black male, in his early to mid 20’s. The suspect demanded her purse and a laptop that she was carrying. The
victim did not imm e diately comply and the suspect brandished a dark “handgun,” discharging it at the victim. The victim was struck in the cheek and the suspect grabbed the purse and computer, running off to an awaiting vehicle. It appears that the weapon was a BB or pellet gun. The child was not harmed. About 11:15 p.m., officers were dispatched to Walgreens, 253 East Foothill Blvd., in response to a report of a female down. Upon arrival, officers contacted the 50-year-old, White female who was lying on the ground and smelled strongly of alcohol. She had a bump on the left side of her forehead from a possible fall. A check in the records system revealed an outstanding DUI warrant. The female subject was placed under arrest for the warrant and for being drunk in public.
Saturday, April 16: About 9:00 a.m., a traffic stop was made at Mayflower and Jeffries for failure to stop for a posted stop sign. A records check of the 35-year-old Hispanic male revealed two felony and one misdemeanor warrants totaling $55,000 in bail. The man was placed
under arrest for the warrants. Shortly after 8:00 p.m., officers were dispatched to the area of Holly Avenue and Norman Avenue regarding three suspicious Hispanic male juveniles who were looking into vehicles. The officers located all three juveniles, one age 15 and the other two age 17. The juveniles were not charged and the parents were contacted to pick up their children. Upon the arrival of one of the children’s guardians, a check of the vehicle license revealed that the registered owner was listed as a missing person out of Pasadena on 3-26-11. The subject was in good health and had left his uncle’s home after an argument and was staying with his girlfriend. The 19-year-old White male was taken out of the missing person’s database.

90 - Year - Old Hero Released from Huntington Hospital Saturday Continued from page 1
John Shear greets some media Friday afternoon.
Oak Tree time. His doctor(s) were delighted with his rapid progress. Shear joked with reporters that he wasn’t a hero, he was just doing his job when he prevented the horse from hitting the 6 year old girl in March. He said his love for horses and the race track had taught him a great deal about animal behavior and was just extremely attentive that particular day. Shear came over to the United States in 1954 from England to work with horses. “I absolutely love them, “he said! “My dad wishes to thank you all for your prayers, generosity, and well wishes,” said Shear’s son. “It has been a tremendous strength to him over these past difficult weeks. He’ll be released from the hospital this Saturday and will be going home, where he will continue with physical therapy. “His doctors are amazed at the progress he’s made. He was badly injured and he was in very, very bad shape the first few days following the accident. He lost quite a bit of blood internally and his blood pressure got very low. My dad has always prided himself on eating well and staying physically fit and there’s no doubt this has helped him immensely.” Shear, a former rider, who has been employed seasonally at Santa Anita since Dec. 23, 1961, sustained a fractured pelvis and other injuries as a result of the incident which took place prior to the third race on March 12. Shear was in his custom-
ary position, holding a perimeter rope on the east end of the track’s walking ring. As the field of 10 horses were readying for the upcoming race, Sea and Sage, a 3-yearold gelding, wheeled, freeing himself from his handler and in a 180 degree about-face, sprinted towards the opening Shear was guarding. As seen on live television, Shear threw himself in front of the young girl, in an act of selfless heroism that could well have saved her life. “By any accounting, John Shear is a hero,” said Santa Anita President George Haines. “He is an amazing human being and we are elated that he is going to be going home much sooner than was originally thought. Through all of these years, John has been a great employee, a man that his peers looked up to. He loves this business and as he’s said many times, he loves being around it, the horses, the people and show that we all work so hard to put on. “On behalf of all of us here at Santa Anita, we want to wish John a speedy recovery and look forward to honoring him this coming fall. He is truly one of a kind.” The young girl had been brought to the track by her father, who wanted her to see that small people, jockeys, can be very successful, was uninjured, as was Sea and Sage. Santa Anita’s winter/ spring comes to a close this Sunday. Live racing will return to Santa Anita on Sept. 29.
Celebrate Monrovia's 125th Birthday with Los Fabulocos Continued from page 6 the kind of gritty, relevant music that pours out of the East L.A. area The group began about four years ago, started by Jesus Cuevas, singer and button accordion maestro, drummer Molina and James Barrios, bass, plus another guitar player. Cuevas and Molina had worked together in The Blazers, a band – with its danceable brand of AmeriMex styles - generally regarded as the closest rivals to Los Lobos Del Este Los Angeles, superstars of the Chicano Rock genre. Together, they spent about seven years touring and recording with The Blazers. “I think I was the longest serving drummer,” says Molina. When the original Los Fabulocos guitar player left, Cuevas kicked things up a notch by inviting friend and fellow motor cycle enthusiast David Ramos into the group. Ramos is better known as Kid Ramos, who over the years has built one of
the better reps around as a blues player (Fabulous Thunderbirds, James Harman, The Mannish Boys). And, like the other three, he comes from East Los Angeles and has been exposed to the multi lingual nuances of all kinds of Chicano music. Ramos fit right into the Los Fabulocos family with his earthy blues guitar to the bajo sexto (sixth bass) is a Mexican instrument, a 12 string guitar on steroids. It is most often heard in traditional Mexican settings the conjunto, norteno and tejana music - but rarely elsewhere. The bajo sexto is just one part of what Los Fabulocos does musically but it specifies the care and attention that the quartet pays to its music and the roots thereof. Bass player Barrios surprisingly for an East Los Angeles native, finds Buck Owens and the country music that came out of Bakersfield, California, in the 1970s, irresistible. “As a child I was introduced to it
A Beacon Media, Inc. Publication
through my dad, he says. “I just love those harmonies.” And these harmonies also find their way into the multicultural play list of Los Fabulocos. Drummer Molina, who started out doing custom art work before a set of drums sidetracked him, likes to control the tempo and the dynamics of the group, getting a steady groove going, something he learned from one of his
influences, Jasper Thomas, drummer for Chuck Berry on the early Chess Records sessions. Don’t miss these guys at Monrovia’s Cinco de Mayo party, May 1. Part 2 of our conversation with Los Fabulocos will be published next Thursday just in time for the Cinco De Mayo Celebration in Monrovia which will actually be held on May 1.
