“I was sick, I’m sick right now…” Herb Stevens told the Monrovia Weekly Monday morning. Stevens was talking, of course, about the helicopter that was shot down killing 22 Navy SEALs and several other military personnel and a K-9 by Taliban forces in Afghanistan Saturday. As he wiped the tears from his eyes, the 91 year former Naval officer whose official job title was ‘Specialist X’ – told Beacon Media that he knows, even though not one himself, a Navy SEAL is, by far, the “ most stressful occupation in the military “ and said this is the branch of the Navy for which he has the highest regard. Early Saturday morning, officials reported that helicop-

The Green Thing Dorothy's Place

BY DOROTHY DENNE The author of the following e-mail is probably of my generation or the next one down. The last line said, “Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smartass young person.” I’m following his/ her advice and sharing it with you. In the line at the store, the cashier told an older woman that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren’t good for the environment. The woman apologized to her and explained, “We didn’t have the green thing back in my day.” The clerk responded, “That’s our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment.” She was right -- our generation didn’t have the green thing in its day. Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and

over. So they really were recycled. But we didn’t have the green thing back in our day. We walked up stairs, because we didn’t have an elevator or escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn’t climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks. But she was right. We didn’t have the green thing in our day. Back then, we washed the baby’s diapers because we didn’t have the throwaway kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry the clothes. Kids got handme-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that old lady is right; we didn’t have the green thing back in our day. Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn’t have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used a wadded up old newspaper to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bub-

ble wrap. Back then, we didn’t fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn’t need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But she’s right; we didn’t have the green thing back then. We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But we didn’t have the green thing back then. Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service. We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn’t need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest pizza joint. But isn’t it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn’t have the green thing back then?

The Pasadena Police Department Promotes Six On August 8, Pasadena Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez hosted promotional ceremony for the department’s newest leaders. These promotions ranged from Deputy Chief to Corporal for a total of six promotions. The Pasadena Police Department and Chief Phil-

lip L. Sanchez announced the promotion of Deputy Chief Darryl Qualls, Police Commanders Lisa Rosales and Chris Russ, Lieutenant Cheryl Moody, Sergeant Bill Grisafe, and Corporal Todd McDonald. These promotions were effective August 1. Darryl

Qualls, 29-years; Lisa Rosales, 24-years; Chris Russ, 28-years; Cheryl Moody, 19-years; William Grisafe, 17-years; and Todd McDonald, 8 - years will replace several employees who recently retired from the department.

Dear Editor: As many of you know, I have been very rough on the LA County Department of Public Works, specifically the Water Resource Division who were responsible for the destruction of the Arcadia Woodlands in January. Actually listening to the legitimate concerns of the local community is anathema to the culture of the DPW’s Water Resources Division. I have recently had an extremely positive experience with the Flood Maintenance Division of the DPW, specifically Keith Tang, Mike Long and Crew Chief Albert (sorry, I missed his last name). I would like to commend their efforts and genuine desire to treat the local community like their customers (which they are). Keith, Mike and Albert were tasked to perform fire clearance in the area to the north and west of the Santa Anita Debris Basin. The area to be cleared was between the maintenance road and the back yard fences of the homes along Highland Oaks Drive. About six weeks ago, I went for a walk in this area and discovered that a major fire clearance project was underway. I was dismayed to see that the portion that had already been cleared was performed far too aggressively. All trees (except for oaks) had been cut down including many native 18” dia. elderberry trees. In addition, many large patches of native and non-native prickly pear, that in actuality act as a fire barrier, had been cleared. There was also evidence that heavy equipment was being used to scrape the ground which promotes the growth of non-native and highly flammable grasses in the upcoming years. I contacted Mr. Keith Tang of the Maintenance Division by phone and told him of my concerns. He was very interested in making sure that the fire clearance was done correctly so we set up a meeting. Keith and the fire clearance project supervisor, Albert met me at the site and I pointed out the improper fire clearance practices that were being used. Keith said that he would request that the Arcadia Fire Department come out to the site to get their take on proper clearance methods. A few days later, Keith Tang, Mike Long, Albert and three members of the Arcadia Fire Department met at the site. We all agreed on how clearance on the remainder of the site would be performed. Yesterday, I went for a walk through that area and found that the fire clearance on the area performed after our meetings was performed perfectly. I would like to personally thank Keith, Mike and Albert in addition to the Arcadia Fire Department for taking the time out of their busy schedules to work together with a member of the community (especially one that has created many headaches for the DPW in the past). The effort has paid off and I look forward to working with the Flood Maintenance Division on their future maintenance projects to ensure that maintaining habitats and the environment are included in the planning process. Kudos for a job well done! Cam Stone, Arcadia

André Vener: Keeping Music Live in Pasadena For close to two decades, André Vener has been committed to keeping live music an integral part of life in Pasadena and surrounding area. And now, while many arts organizations in Pasadena are either moving to other cities or have folded, Vener is as determined – and busy – as ever to make sure that live music not only survives in Pasadena, but thrives. “We are filling a void and supplying what the community wants,” said Vener, a fourth generation Pasadenan-soon to be proud father of the fifth.( They are expecting a lttle girl) Vener’s Pasadena heritage includes his father, Victor Vener, Maestro of the California Philharmonic, an orchestra devoted to and actively keeping live music accessible in the area. André, along with partners S. Robert and Denise Zeilstra, formed Pasadena Entertainment, a full service entertainment, event marketing and production company. The organization specializes in creating memorable experiences and large scale productions for a variety of city, corporate, charity and sports organizations. “Pasadena is a vibrant, eclectic, culturally rich city that boasts the finest in everything from food and drinks to shopping. Our city’s residents and visitors deserve the finest in entertainment as well, specifically live music, and we ensure they get it.” Under the guidance of Vener’s experienced hand, Pasadena Entertainment has cemented its position as the go to company that brings such high-profile events as the Festival on the Green summer concert series, The Freedom Concert, AmericaFest, The Nutcracker Swings, Pasadena Wine Festival and Old Pasadena Wine and Jazz Walk and the Pasadena Jazz Fest to life. The company, in association with the Pasadena Convention Center, is also the force behind Summer Soundzz concert series, known as the “Party on the Plaza”, featuring live music and dancing under the stars at what has rapidly become the city’s premier public space. This summer’s lineup is especially exciting, with acclaimed tribute bands The Fab Four and The Spazmatics, as well as “Kings of the Party”, New Orleans’ one and only Big Sam’s Funky Nation held last Thursday. “This year, Pasadena

turns 125. What’s more, it’s the 110th anniversary of Jazz legend Louis Armstrong’s birth,” Vener noted. “Pasadena recently had the unique opportunity to combine these two special occasions into the funkiest party around with an unprecedented Summer Soundzz performance by Big Sam’s Funky Nation. The band is touring the US, performing for 110 days in a row to celebrate the 110th birthday of Louis Armstrong and, because of Big Sam’s long standing relationship with Pasadena Entertainment, we were fortunate enough to have them perform on Au-

people to great music and incredible artists they might not otherwise be familiar with, in addition to just being great albums.” Vener is also a firm believer in building bridges with others to achieve even greater successes. As an “ambassador of live music”, he has also partnered in producing events along with organizations as LA Galaxy, Westfield Shopping Town and Santa Anita Race Track among others. Vener also works closely with the city of Pasadena, helping to produce events including Make Music Pasadena and the Official

gust 4th. It was a win win situation. Byron Miller opened the concert with his unique sound and a band composed of some of the music industry’s top performers.” Creating these unique win win situations is one of many goals for André, who also is a partner in Old Pasadena hot spots redwhite+bluezz and point08. Between the two venues, live jazz and music is available in Pasadena seven nights a week...equating to 675 live shows per year. On top of that, André relishes his role as a partner in Dog Haus, Pasadena’s home of the Best of the Wurst, gourmet hot dogs, hamburgers and sausages. But his love of music goes further. Through his work with redwhite+bluezz, point08 and Cal Phil, Vener has produced three CDs of music from many of the artists he works with, creating aural snapshots of the live music he so passionately supports and presents. “I like to think of the CDs I’ve worked on as a way to introduce

125th Birthday Celebration for the City of Pasadena held at the Pasadena Museum of History. From the start, André and his partners incorporated their love of community service into their business’ missions. redwhite+bluezz continues to cement its position as one of the city’s most involved community fundraising entities, having past the five million dollar mark earlier this year. Dog Haus, point08 and Pasadena Entertainment have all also made significant contributions of time, resources and money to local charities. 5 Acres, Pasadena Mental Health, Huntington Memorial Hospital, Pasadena Education Network, Hathaway Sycamores, Planned Parenthood, D’Veal Family Services and the Tournament of Roses are among the various community organizations that redwhite+bluezz has partnered with of late. With no plans of slowing down, the Pasadena destination expects

to reach its 5.6 million dollar target by its fifth anniversary this summer. Ever the optimistic entrepreneur, Vener assessed the entertainment business climate in the city by saying “There is no competition but there are always opportunities to team up with other great local organizations,” said Vener. “To anyone who has ideas for live music events in Pasadena: I am listening.” Hailed as the 2009 Citizen of the Year by the Pasadena Weekly’s Readers Poll and revered for his community involvement and philanthropy, Vener has not only produced more than 1000 live music performances but 100 plus major fundraisers benefitting over 75 community organizations, primarily from Pasadena, but also from around the globe. Vener also served as President and CEO of the California Philharmonic for more than a decade. “I am a self proclaimed project junky who thrives on blending passion with progress. I have never been nor will I ever be one to sit still, I am in a constant state of moving forward and I want to make a difference along the way. With every challenge come possibilities. By forming Pasadena Entertainment I was able to create a place where I could continue to grow and prosper while giving back to the city I am proud to call home,” said Vener, whose father was born here and returned to Pasadena with family in tow when he was a young boy. Vener’s family roots in Pasadena date as far back to the Great Depression when his grandfather owned a pawn shop on Colorado Blvd. Vener attended Polytechnic, La Salle High School and Pasadena City College before earning an EMBA from Claremont Graduate College. His earlier Pasadena ties also include becoming an Eagle Scout, helping handicapped children at the Boys Club and spending 8 years volunteering for the Pasadena Pops Orchestra, which his father, Maestro Victor Vener, founded. André was 22 when Victor established the California Philharmonic. It was then that he was introduced to the world of non-profits and has been committed to Pasadena, quality music and philanthropy, without missing a beat, ever since.

Arcadia Senior Olympic Health Gurus, Harry and Sarah Snider, Offer Insight into Staying Young

Arcadians Represented the USA in the World Masters Track and Field Competition in Sacramento California July 6 through July 17

Five thousand athletes from 93 nations competed in the World Masters Track and Field Championships in Sacramento. Nineteen hundred fifteen athletes represented the United States. One of the highlights of the competition included former Olympian Zola Budd Pieterse, well known for her race in the

1984 Olympics with Mary Decker Slaney. Willie Banks of the United States, former world record holder, competed in the triple jump, high jump and long jump. Many other former Olympians competed. People as young as 35 and as old as 101 competed in track and field events like pole vault, shot

put, 100 meter dash, 5,000 meter run as well as the marathon -- 37 different events in all were contested. These athletes represent the finest in the world when it comes to track and field as well as health and fitness. Many competitors were everyday people who were not near any of the records but enjoyed the fellowship of being a part of an international festival of good will, fun, and great memories. As a correspondent for the Arcadia Weekly I asked many incredible athletes “Why are you competing?” The familiar comment I got from many of them was “I want to stay healthy and fit and I want to challenge myself!” Daily workouts with healthy nutrition plus setting realistic goals brought them to this competition feeling youth-

ful, excited about life and looking forward to living many, many years ahead! Arcadians Ernie Smith and Sarah Sneider competed with some of the world’s greatest athletes in their age group. Ernie Smith is 77 years young and throws the shot put! He has been throwing the shot for over 50 years! He works out 3 times a week with Coach Sneider, eats very healthy food, gets plenty of rest, and depends on God to help him to stay excited about life. Sarah Sneider, age 66, started her training for the long jump only a few years ago. She attributes her youthful attitude by staying strong with weightlifting, cycling, rope climbing, and other fitness activities. She currently has a fitness DVD together with her son Rob called Sneiders Resistance

research fellow, and a senior research associate, becoming a professor in 1998. Sargent has served as the director of the Owens Valley Radio Observatory and the Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-Wave Astronomy. She has also been president of the American Astronomical Society, chair of NASA’s Space Science Advisory Committee, and chair of the National Research Council’s Board of Physics and Astronomy. A former member of the National Science Founda-

tion’s Mathematical and Physical Sciences Advisory Committee, she is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The National Science Board consists of 25 members who serve six-year appointments. Eight members are nominated every two years and must be confirmed by the Senate. Previous members from Caltech include Barry Barish, the Linde Professor of Physics, Emeritus; the late Lee DuBridge, physicist, former Caltech president, and science advisor to

Rebounding. These are the secrets to staying young that I learned from these masters athletes: 1) Move that body 2) Eat healthy 3) Get good rest 4) Think positively 5) Have friends 6) Serve others 7) Pray and ask for God’s guidance. Let these wonderful athletes inspire you to

begin a health and fitness program. You can be the best that you can be by starting to work out today! The Sneiders are professional fitness trainers and coaches with over 50 years of experience that can help you. Call them today 626355-8964 or email them at harrysneider@earthlink. net.

Heaven on Earth - China BY AMY LEONG No matter how many times I fly on an airplane, I still enjoy the rumble of the wheels picking off from the ground, the speed of the plane taking flight into the skies, and the weight of its altitude lifting off your shoulders. And 14 hours from now, I will still be waiting in that cramped economy class seating area, eating airplane food, and getting up now and then - to use the restroom, say hi to relatives sitting on the other side of the plane, or peering through the window at a glance toward the ant-sized cars and specs of people. Arriving at our first destination, Kunming, China, we (Mom, Dad, Aunt, Uncle, and I) entered nothing but humidity and hot winds blowing our faces. Walking through to the local areas of town, we toured

most of Western China’s highlights. From the scenic parks of Tiger Leaping Gorge to their famous temples, we experienced everything. One of our very first stops was the Reed Flute Caves, which was highlighted by its colorful lighted landscape of stalagmites and stalactites, forming a mountainous appearance while leaving the lights gleaming from behind the rocks. Taking a break from the humidity outside, we continued to venture inside the cave to find them shaped into trees, carved into statues, and formed into the fantasies of dragons and castles. Going deeper into the cave, there was only more of the variety of colored rocks, forming more of the recognizable symbols of the Christmas

spirit. However, one of my favorite places had to be Tiger Leaping Gorge. Located in a nearby city, called Lijiang, we exhaustingly walked down 2,000 steps to find ourselves surrounded by the meaning of beauty and adventure all in itself. While trees and lakes surrounded its vicinity, rushing and roaring rapids came crashing down like a gigantic waterfall that’s nearly a few feet away from you. But even more exciting was the lake nearby it, as it was my first time ever riding on top of a yak. Though I was only able to ride a very short distance, it amazed me to be in the middle of the river, watching the water slide down farther beneath me. Sim-

Dermatologist Goli Compoginis, M.D., Joins Huntington Medical Foundation Huntington Medical Foundation (HMF) announced today that Goli Compoginis, M.D., a dermatologist and graduate of the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, will be joining its medical staff on August 8. She will be located at the HMF office in Pasadena. “I feel very fortunate to be joining an outstanding medical team right here in the community where I live,” said Dr. Compoginis. “Huntington Medical Foundation has always been dedicated to providing the highest quality healthcare through innovative programs and personal, patient-friendly care. I look forward to bringing my enthusiasm and background to this team.” A resident of Southern California for most of her life, Dr. Compoginis earned her Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Duke University and then joined the UCLA Department of Child Psychiatry. Her experiences there led her to medical school at USC where she was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society during her third year, an honor awarded to only the top 5 percent of her class. While in medical school Dr. Compoginis con¬ducted research on malignant melanoma and spent two summers at Camp Wonder, a

program for children with severe skin diseases. As chief resident at Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center, Dr. Compoginis received extensive training in all aspects of medical, surgi¬cal and cosmetic dermatology. She did her internship at Huntington Memorial Hospital and is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology. Dermatology is literally the study of the skin – that branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases of the skin, hair, nails, oral cavity and genitals. Among the most common skin conditions treated by dermatologists are acne, herpes, hives, rosacea, warts and skin cancer, from the slow-growing basal cell carcinoma to the hives, rosacea, warts and skin cancer, from the slow-growing basal cell carcinoma to the potentially fatal melanoma. Dermatologists also treat a wide array of bacterial, fungal or viral infections in the skin. “Some skin diseases are serious and deadly, while others are just annoying; and some are disfiguring while others are barely visible,” said Dr. Compoginis. “Don’t take a chance or try to self-diagnose. When you see something out of the ordinary, the best thing to do is have it checked out for peace

of mind and early intervention if necessary.” Outside the office, Dr. Compoginis enjoys reading, hiking, movies, cooking and watching college basketball. She has served on the Polytechnic School alumni board since 2007 and lives with her husband in Pasadena. Dr. Compoginis’ office is located at 55 East California Blvd., Suite 204, in Pasadena. Appointments may be made by calling 626-397-8323. Founded in 1994, Huntington Medical Foundation’s 70 physicians serve area adults and children at eight offices throughout the San Gabriel Valley. In addition to primary care doctors, the medical foundation includes specialists in a variety of areas, all of whom are either board-certified or boardeligible. The medical foundation also provides the clinical staff for Pasadena Community Urgent Care, filling an important gap between a patient’s primary care doctor and a hospital’s emergency department. Earlier this year Huntington Medical Foundation was named the “Best Medical Group” in the San Gabriel Valley in a poll of readers conducted by the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the Pasadena Star-News and the Whittier Daily News.

Monrovia Business to Host ‘31 Heroes' Fundraising Event Sept. 3 Continued from page 1 ter CH-47 was shot down moments after liftoff after a call for help from another special forces group in Afghanistan. Known to be the best of the best, 30 U.S. military members were killed as well as one highly specially trained dog named Bart, in the crash, 22 being Navy SEALs. Heard to be in a firefight, a western military official claimed that the chopper had been brought down by a rocket-propelled grenade minutes after takeoff in the mountainous region of the Wardak province. Officials also reported 22 men were members of SEAL Team 6, which was a part of the team involved with the Bin Laden raid. Officially known as the Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU), Team 6 members help to supervise the Army’s Delta Force along with other units. Stevens and his wife Mildren Lapson, lowered their flag -which is prominently placed on their front lawn of their Monrovia home – to half staff over the weekend in memory of those who lost their lives in this attack which Stevens says he considers the “worst since Pearl Harbor.” Stevens was based in Vienna, Austria under Navy

Captain Winterholler. The Captain led Stevens and other who were assigned to Intelligence duty. Stevens, who speaks 7 languages fluently, was the perfect fit for the job. He spoke not only German but the many distinctive dialects fluently and masterfully. His primary assignment was to remove all Naval ordinance from captured Hungarian and German gunboats on the Danube. Stevens’ job entailed explaining to the prisoners that they were removing all the weapons and ammunition from the seized boats. Once dismantled from enemy gunboats, these weapons were transported to the “Vienna Vault” where they were blown up and rendered useless. Stevens said it was a little different when he was in the Navy. “ We could face the enemy then”…now its far more impersonal, he said. Thus far here are the names of the fallen heroes are: Navy SEALs Kraig Vickers, Hawaii Stephen Matthew Mills, Texas Kevin Houston, Massachusetts Robert James Reeves, Louisiana Jonas Kelsall, Louisiana

Pasadena Prima Ballerina and Vaudvillean Passes Away in Relative Obscurity Prima Ballerina – Reader – Vaudville Founder of Devereaux Ballet Arts School in Pasadena from 1952 to 1964 BY TERRY MILLER We met with Kathleen Menzie Lesko Monday whose forthcoming biography She Ran Between the Raindrops: Jeanne Devereaux Perkins, Prima Ballerina of Vaudeville and Broadway recounts the extraordinary life of a precocious child ballet dancer from Saint Louis, Missouri, born on October 31, 1912. Deveraux Perkins asserted that she performed before more European crowned heads of state than any other vaudevillian of her era and loved to re-create the triumph of her Royal Command Performance before King George V and Queen Mary at the London Palladium in 1935. Deveraux Perkins noted that she was the first ballerina and the only American to succeed Anna Pavlova’s performance in 1912. 26 years later she would be chosen to perform for King George VI and Queen Elizabeth on a lake in Paris’ Bois de Boulogne. She vividly described her spine tingling thrill when performing in the 1940s on Radio City Music Hall’s massive stage, and when in 1946 she had led the first USO troupe of performers to Japan shortly after the war had ended. Deveraux Perkins became an international star in variety entertainment as a professional toe dancer during the first half of the twentieth century. Some vaudevillians did not make the transition to radio or television. Post retirement in 1952 she fell into rela-

tive obscurity in the annals of show business, but “possessed the intelligence, curiosity, and creativity to reinvent herself for four more careers.” According to her official biographer, Menzie Lesko. “Jeanne was one of the last vaudevillians of her era, and her personal story illuminates in a special way a dramatic period of American popular entertainment and culture” she added. Deveraux Perkins career as an international prima ballerina spanned nearly three decades when she married Thomas Perkins of Pasadena in 1952. Deverauz Perkins, already performing at age eleven, accompanied her determined mother on her first vaudeville tour on the Orpheum circuit at age thirteen. Needing to support her family financially, in late 1926 after turning fourteen she left Saint Louis and her mentally ill father and went to New York with her mother to begin a career in show business. Although classically trained, like other toe dancers of her era she did not have the luxury to join one of the few fledging élite ballet companies, but needed to make a living in the popular and lucrative venues of popular variety entertainment. To distinguish herself as a specialty act and to protect her artistic integrity, Jeanne promoted herself as a “prima ballerina,” and stipulated in her contracts that she would not perform any nude dances. Over her career

Jeanne gave over six thousand paid performances, as well as five hundred benefits. She played at least seven times on all the vaudeville circuits that

combined stage shows and films in America’s cities. She was also a regular performer in the popular summer operettas, in the early 1930s danced in a feature movie released by Fox and another by Warner Bros., and from the late 1930s through the 1940s was a soloist at

co Star Theatre impersonating the famous blonde singer and dancer Marilyn Miller, who had starred in the Ziegfeld Follies in the 1920s. Two highlights of Jeanne’s dancing career took place in Europe and Asia. Jeanne claimed to have danced before more members of royalty than any other American performer of her time. In 1935 while performing at the London Palladium she was selected to dance in a Royal Command Performance before King George V and Queen Mary. She was the first ballerina since Anna Pavlova in 1912 and the first American ballerina ever to be invited to perform in a Royal Command Performance, an annual philanthropic event to raise money for old-time British variety artists. In 1938 while performing at the Bal Taborin nightclub in Paris, she was again invited to dance before British royalty, the time for King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in the Bois de Boulogne during their first state trip abroad. Later, in 1946 she led the first USO troupe of performers on a landmark tour to Japan shortly after the bombs had decimated Hiroshima and Nagasaki and forced a surrender that ended the war. Her description of her experience in Japan via Hawaii, Guam, the Philippines, and Okinawa, with performances also in those islands, is riveting and historical. Deverauz Perkins biography includes both pub-

lic records like newspaper reviews as well as feature articles and theatrical posters. Menzie Lesko went thought countless Playbills, as well as personal notes, held interviews, and read family letters. Her life’s story “depicts the exhilarating yet exhausting lifestyle of a vaudevillian—a trouper—both onstage and offstage, riding the trains to the next town on the vaudeville circuits to perform five live shows daily as a prelude to a feature film and the spine tingling thrill of performing in one of the palatial presentation theatres in New York like Radio City Music Hall.” Biographer Kathleen Menzie Lesko said. After her marriage to Thomas Perkins in 1952, Deverauz Perkins started the Devereaux Ballet Arts School in Pasadena from 1952 where she taught until 1964. In 1980 until her retirement in 2008 at age ninety-six Deverauz Perkins was a devoted researcher (Reader) and writer at the Huntington Library, where she worked on her lectures and a biography of her “historical soulmate” Grace Nicholson, a pioneering collector and entrepreneur whose home is now Pacific Asia Museum. After a four-month convalescence Jeanne passed away in a Pasadena nursing home on July 28, 2011, at the age of ninetyeight with her husband Tom at her side.

Ape Movie Doesn’t Rise Beyond Its Potential (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) MOVIE REVIEW BY MICHAEL J. GONZALEZ T h a t Hollywood trots out its more vapid, CGI-heavy, action-adventure offerings during the summer months is expected, but for the filmmakers to suggest that Rise of the Planet of the

Apes is somehow a prequel to the 1960s classic seems almost sacrilege. Neither capable director Rupert Wyatt nor a talented cast that includes James Franco, John Lithgow, and Slumdog Millionaire’s Freida Pinto manage to save

the film from cliché and silliness. Will (Franco) is a genetic scientist on the search for a cure to Alzheimer’s. After being forced to care for Caeser, one of his chimpanzee test subjects, Will discovers that a particular test serum not only

COMMUNITY WEEKLY EVENTS SM Fire Department and SM Search and Rescue Joint Training The Sierra Madre Fire Department and the Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team will have a joint training session on Saturday, August 13 from 8 a.m. to noon. This training will stimulate a large scale incident that may result in mass civilian casualties. The training better prepares these groups for major disasters such as earthquakes, wildfires, and other unforeseeable incidents. The Fire Department and Search and Rescue teams are looking for more volunteers to assist with the stimulation as an “actor” simulating injury requiring evacuation. Volunteers of all ages are invited, and children

should be accompanied by an adult. Lunch will be provided to all who attend this exercise. For more info call (626)-355-3611.

repairs brain cells but is actually increasing Caeser’s intelligence, exponentially. Then, through a series of hackneyed plot-devices, Caeser is taken to primate jail, where his super-mental monkey powers allow him to figure out how

to smuggle in enough smart serum for the rest of his new friends, whereby mutiny and mayhem quickly ensue. On its own merits, the film does provide some moments of bland entertainment, particularly the action-sequences to-

ward the end. But, as much as it thrives in computer-generated wizardry, it lacks in all of the insight and profundity expressed in the original, which explored the question what if apes ruled the planet?, so interestingly.

after the Breeders’ Cup in November next year.” Kovacic added that hundreds of volunteers will help visitors to Arcadia feel welcome during this prestigious racing event. Santa Anita has hosted the Breeders’ Cup World Championships five times, most recently back-to-back editions in 2008 and 2009, both of which set records for attendance and wagering. The decision followed a lengthy review process by the Breeders’ Cup Host Site Selection Committee, which included proposals from multiple racing venues in North America including Churchill Downs. “We are thrilled to bring back the Breeders’ Cup to southern California which is always a strong draw for horseracing fans from around the world and where the Breeders’ Cup has always been embraced by the community,” said Craig Fravel, President & CEO of Breeders’ Cup. “Santa Anita Park is a world class racing venue that will once again provide a spectacular setting for two days of the best in

international racing.” “Hosting the Breeders’ Cup is important to the California horseracing

industry and it is an honor for Santa Anita to be chosen as host of the Breeders’ Cup for the sixth time,” said Frank Stronach, Chairman of The Stronach Group, which owns Santa Anita. “Our team looks forward to the challenge of building on the success of 2008 and 2009 with the 2012 Breeders’ Cup.” Fravel was joined by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Stronach Group President Greg Avioli, California Horse Racing Board Chairman Keith Brackpool, Arcadia Mayor Garu Kovacic and

Prudential

California Horse Racing Board member and actress Bo Derek. “We are proud and delighted to once again host the Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita Park and to welcome the legion of loyal racing fans to Southern California,” Mayor Villaraigosa said. “This prestigious, international sporting phenomenon will boost our local economy and generate tens of millions of dollars in economic impact to the region.” Zenyatta’s electrifying performance to become the first female to win

the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic highlighted the 2009 World Cham-

pionships at Santa Anita. In addition to the then record attendance and handle (exceeded only by the 2010 Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Churchill Downs), the 2009 races attracted the most international starters in event history with 34 participants from outside the US. The Breeders’ Cup generated in excess of $60 million in economic impact in the Los Angeles area in both 2008 and 2009. Next year’s running will mark the sixth time that Santa Anita will host the Breeders’ Cup, after hosting the event in 1986, 1993, 2003, 2008 and 2009. The Breeders’ Cup World Championships, Thoroughbred racing’s most prestigious global event, annually attracts the best horses from around the world. It is the richest prize-money event in sports, consisting of 15 races and purses totaling $26 million. The 29th Breeders’ Cup will be televised on ABC/ESPN and to more than 130 countries.

ply put, the bumpy, furry 5 minute experience was the highlight of my trip. Although the fuzziness of that first ride was quite bumpy, venturing into another province with our gigantic bus was even worse. With the rocks and dips every second, our trip toward Shangri La was exactly like riding the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland. We basically bumped into every

direction, rocking back and forth on an out-of control vehicle. When we finally arrived, however, the experience was simply breathtaking. Large landscapes of peaceful and beautiful views surrounded us in a 360° direction. Filled with plenty of trees, lakes, and mountains, the picturesque view would be a photographer’s dream spot. On the

high tops of hills, temples awaited us with golden statues and intricate pictures detailing China’s past. But no matter how many times I go to China, I will still enjoy all of its many landscapes, road trips, and traditions, as their scenic views continue taking my breath away in a glance toward heaven on earth.

Two Arrested, Two Stolen Cars Recovered On August 3, 2011, about 2:00 a.m. in the morning, Pasadena Police Officers observed two Honda Civics stopped on Mountain St. near the 210 freeway off-ramp. They watched the driver of one car get out and get into the passenger side of the second car. Officers believed the suspects were abandoning a stolen car and attempted to conduct an investigative stop as the car drove away. The suspects

attempted to evade the officers and lost control of the car sideswiped a parked van at the intersection of Sunset Avenue and Washington Place then collided into a utility pole. Both suspects were injured in the collision and transported to a local hospital where they are being treated and will be arrested upon release. The investigation confirmed both Honda Civics were unreported stolen

cars. The car the suspects abandoned was stolen from Los Angeles. The car the suspects crashed was stolen from Rancho Cucamonga. Both suspects are adult male Hispanic and residents of Pasadena. One of the suspects is on active parole for a stolen vehicle conviction. The names are being withheld until their identities are confirmed.

Officials Warn of Hiking Dangers Continued from page 1 Erwin Molina, 21, was attempting to scale a wall at the side of the lower Eaton Canyon waterfall a week ago Sunday and died of his injuries two days later in the hospital. Rescue teams said the incident is one in a surge of recent calls within the year. Rescue crews said a common mistake hikers make is wandering off the trail and getting lost. The

wrong clothes make matters worse and not being fit for a long climb adds to the problem. Cell phones can be a big help. If you are in an area where you can get a cellular signal, take a picture with your cell phone. Then, email it to a friend who can then download it to Google Earth. Then, you’ll see a thumbtack of

your exact location within 200 feet. Also, your phone’s flash can work as a signal. Better still, avoid trouble altogether by researching your trail and learning the risks involved, keeping in mind that it can be much easier to go up than coming down. Also, be prepared by bringing a flashlight and some extra water.

Pasadena Opthalmologist Specializes in Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) Pasadena Ophthalmologist Dr. Bhatti is an eye specialist in medical and surgical retina-vitreous disorders. He has been recognized as one of the ‘Top Doctors’ in the area. Bhatti is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Retina Specialists and specializes in Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) AMD is one of the most common causes of vision loss in adults over the age of 60. And most people who develop AMD ignore the early warning signs. AMD occurs when there is a loss of function or deterioration of the center part of your retina called the macula, which allows sharp, detailed vision necessary for activities such as reading, watching TV, and driving. The visual symptoms of AMD involve a loss of central vision (blurred, distorted, or dark area in your central vision) while the peripheral vision is unaffected. There are 2 main types of AMD, dry and wet. Approximately 90% of people with AMD have the dry form. Dry AMD causes a

gradual visual loss, but the loss usually is not severe. Some people with dry AMD will develop the wet form, which can cause a sudden decline in vision that is more likely to cause severe visual loss. Symptoms may be sudden, with a severe and rapid loss of central vision. The exact cause of AMD is not completely understood, however factors that increase the risk of developing AMD include age, family history of AMD, smoking, sunlight exposure, and diet. The risk of having AMD increases with age. The diagnosis of AMD is based on a clinical exam of your retina. Many times an the examination is supplemented advanced imaging procedures such as fluorescein angiogram (FA) which will allow your eye doctor to see blood vessels in your eyes and optical coherence tomography (OCT) which obtains a cross sectional view of the retina. Both of these procedures are done in your doctor’s office on the same day of your office visit. Treatment for AMD is based on whether it is dry or wet. For dry AMD, the Age-

Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) showed that highdose anti-oxidant vitamins can reduce the risk of progression of the disease. In addition, the risk of worsening AMD may be reduced by reducing risk factors through maintaining a healthy life style, for example, quitting smoking, eating lots of fruits and vegetables, and exercising regularly. Wet AMD is treated primarily with injections of medication directly into the eye to prevent the growth of new blood vessels. Your eye doctor can determine which, if any, treatment is appropriate for you. Dr. Bhatti is currently offering free consultations. To book an appointment, please call 1-800-MACULA-4

ORDINANCE NO. 2286 AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF ARCADIA, CALIFORNIA, DETERMINING IT WILL COMPLY WITH THE VOLUNTARY ALTERNATIVE REDEVELOPMENT PROGRAM PURSUANT TO PART 1.9 OF DIVISION 24 OF THE CALIFORNIA HEALTH AND SAFETY CODE IN ORDER TO PERMIT THE CONTINUED EXISTENCE AND OPERATION OF THE ARCADIA REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY WHEREAS, the City Council of the City of Arcadia (“City”) approved and adopted the Redevelopment Plan for the Central Redevelopment Project (“Redevelopment Plan”) covering certain properties within the City (the “Project Area”); and WHEREAS, the Arcadia Redevelopment Agency (“Agency”) is engaged in activities to execute and implement the Redevelopment Plan pursuant to the provisions of the California Community Redevelopment Law (Health and Safety Code § 33000, et seq.) (“CRL”); and WHEREAS, since adoption of the Redevelopment Plan, the Agency has undertaken redevelopment projects in the Project Area to eliminate blight, to improve public facilities and infrastructure, to renovate and construct affordable housing, and to enter into partnerships with private industries to create jobs and expand the local economy; and WHEREAS, over the next few years, the Agency hopes to implement a variety of redevelopment projects and programs to continue to eliminate and prevent blight, stimulate and expand the Project Area’s economic growth, create and develop local job opportunities and alleviate deficiencies in public infrastructure, to name a few; and WHEREAS, as part of the 2011-2012 State budget bill, the California Legislature has recently enacted, and the Governor has signed, companion bills AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27, requiring that each redevelopment agency be dissolved unless the community that created it enacts an ordinance committing it to making certain payments; and WHEREAS, specifically, AB 1X 26 prohibits agencies from taking numerous actions, effective immediately and purportedly retroactively, and additionally provides that agencies are deemed to be dissolved as of October 1, 2011; and WHEREAS, AB 1X 27 provides that a community may participate in an “Alternative Voluntary Redevelopment Program,” in order to enable a redevelop-

ment agency within that community to remain in existence and carry out the provisions of the CRL, by enacting an ordinance agreeing to comply with Part 1.9 of Division 24 of the Health and Safety Code; and WHEREAS, the Alternative Voluntary Redevelopment Program requires that the community agree by ordinance to remit specified annual amounts to the county auditor-controller; and WHEREAS, under the threat of dissolution pursuant to AB 1X 26, and upon the contingencies and reservations set forth herein, the City shall make the Fiscal Year 2011-2012 community remittance, currently estimated to be One Million Four Hundred Eighty-Two Thousand Nine Hundred Twenty Dollars ($1,482,920), as well as the subsequent annual community remittances as set forth in the CRL; and WHEREAS, the City reserves the right to appeal the California Director of Finance’s determination of the Fiscal Year 2011-2012 community remittance, as provided in Health and Safety Code Section 34194; and WHEREAS, City understands and believes that an action challenging the constitutionality of AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27 will be filed on behalf of cities, counties and redevelopment agencies; and WHEREAS, while the City currently intends to make these community remittances, they shall be made under protest and without prejudice to the City’s right to recover such amounts and interest thereon, to the extent there is a final determination that AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27 are unconstitutional; and WHEREAS, the City reserves the right, regardless of any community remittance made pursuant to this Ordinance, to challenge the legality of AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27; and WHEREAS, to the extent a court of competent jurisdiction enjoins, restrains, or grants a stay on the effectiveness of the Alternative Voluntary Redevelopment Program’s payment obligation of AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27, the City shall not be obligated to make any community remittance for the duration of such injunction, restraint, or stay; and WHEREAS, all other legal prerequisites to the adoption of this Ordinance have occurred. NOW, THEREFORE, THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF ARCADIA, CALIFORNIA, DOES ORDAIN AS FOLLOWS: SECTION 1. Recitals. The Recitals set forth above are true and correct and incorporated herein by reference. SECTION 2. Participation in the Alternative Voluntary Redevelopment Program. In accordance with Health and Safety Code Section 34193, and based on the Recitals set forth above, the City Council hereby determines that the City shall comply with the provisions of Part 1.9 of Division 24 of the Health and Safety Code, as enacted by AB 1X 27. SECTION 3. Payment Under Protest. Except as set forth in Section 4, below, the City Council hereby determines that the City shall make the community remittances set forth in Health and Safety Code section 34194 et seq. SECTION 4. Effect of Stay or Determination of Invalidity. City shall not make any community remittance in the event a court of competent jurisdiction either grants a stay on the enforcement of AB 1X 26 or AB 1X 27 or determines that AB 1X 26 or AB 1X 27 are unconstitutional and therefore invalid, and all appeals therefrom are exhausted or unsuccessful, or time for filing an appeal therefrom has lapsed. Any community remittance shall be made under protest and without prejudice to the City’s right to recover such amount and interest thereon in the event that there is a final determination that AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27 are unconstitutional. If there is a final determination that AB 1X 26 and AB 1X 27 are invalid, this Ordinance shall be deemed to be null and void and of no further force or effect. SECTION 5. Implementation. The City Council hereby authorizes and directs the City Manager to take any action and execute any documents necessary to implement this Ordinance, including but not limited to notifying the Los Angeles County Auditor-Controller, the Controller of the State of California, and the California Department of Finance of the adoption of this Ordinance and the City’s agreement to comply with the provisions of Part 1.9 of Division 24 of the Health and Safety Code, as set forth in AB 1X 27. SECTION 6. Additional Understandings and Intent. It is the understanding and intent of the City Council that, once the Agency is again authorized to enter into agreements under the CRL, the City will enter into an agreement with the Agency as authorized pursuant to Section 34194.2, whereby the Agency will transfer annual portions of its tax increment to the City in amounts not to exceed the annual community remittance payments to enable the City, directly or indirectly, to make the annual remittance payments. The City Council does not intend, by enactment of this Ordinance, to pledge any of its general fund revenues or assets to make the remittance payments. SECTION 7. CEQA. The City Council finds, under Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations, Section 15378(b)(4), that this Ordinance is exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”) in that it is not a “project,” but instead consists of the creation and continuation of a governmental funding mechanism for potential future projects and programs, and does not commit funds to any specific project or program. The City Council, therefore, directs that a Notice of Exemption be filed with the County Clerk of the County of Los Angeles in accordance with CEQA Guidelines. SECTION 8. Custodian of Records. The documents and materials that constitute the record of proceedings on which these findings are based are located at the City Clerk’s office located at 240 West Huntington Drive, P.O. Box 60021, Arcadia, California 91066. The custodian for these records is the City Clerk. SECTION 9. Severability. If any provision of this Ordinance or the application thereof to any person or circumstance is held invalid, such invalidity shall not affect other provisions or applications of this Ordinance which can be given effect without the invalid provision or application, and to this end the provisions of this Ordinance are severable. The City Council hereby declares that it would have adopted this Ordinance irrespective of the invalidity of any particular portion thereof. SECTION 10. Certification; Publication. The City Clerk shall certify to the adoption of this Ordinance and cause it, or a summary of it, to be published once within 15 days of adoption in a newspaper of general circulation printed and published within the City of Arcadia, and shall post a certified copy of this Ordinance, including the vote for and against the same, in the Office of the City Clerk in accordance with Government Code § 36933.

SECTION 11. Effective Date. This Ordinance shall become effective on the thirty first (31st) after its adoption.

Passed, approved and adopted this
