Temple City Steve Madison Nips Naber’s Bid in the Bud Incumbents Triumphant BY TERRY MILLER Incumbents were triumphant Tuesday night in Temple City’s election in which three City Council seats were available. Carl Blum, 68, Cynthia Sternquist, 55, and Fernando Vizcarra, 67, were ahead of Manuel Valenzuela, 29, who garnered a fair amount of the vote. Starene Cruse and Nicholas Lisk were considerably behind as of 10pm. Pending provisional ballots, it looks like there will be no new blood on Temple City council.

The Gables in Monrovia was well represented at Fat Tuesday

The Monrovia City Council, in an emergency meeting on Tuesday, March 8, took action to prevent the state from seizing the Assets of the Monrovia Redevelopment Agency (MRA). Acting not only as the Council, but also as the board of the Agency, they placed a lien on the properties owned by the MRA. According to Mark Alvarado, the City’s Finance Director, the cost of properties owned by the agency might be as high as $40 million dollars. Alvarado said that while the state legislative action will not take effect until July I, it is possible the state could make it retroactive to January 1 2011 thus making the city’s action moot ! Governor Jerry Brown had proposed that redevelopment agency properties throughout the state be taken by the state to help satisfy the deficit. Legislation to that effect is currently pending. Under the suggested legislation, the state could sell those properties, but would need to satisfy the bond obligations. Alvarado said that it was his understanding that these obligations were mandatory. He also said that he felt the city council’s action might create another obligation which would need to be satisfied before that state could recoup any moneys from the sale of the properties. Those properties which have been redeveloped have certain tax increment income which currently goes to the MRA some of which passes through that agency and goes to the lo-

Think About It Dorothy's Place

BY DOROTHY DENNE How long since the breaking news of the first human heart transplant? Seems such a short time for something that today is so common. There are humans walking around all over the world with someone else’s heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas. The list goes on. Medical science is considering human brain transplants. Now I find that really scary. Who exists when the transplant is completed? How does that brain function in its new body? Does it take with it just its abilities or does it carry all its stored memories and learned lessons? Think about it. How many times have you said, “If I had only known then what

I know now” or “If only my body could do the things it used to do”? Could it, would it, should it? What if they put a 75-year-old brain in a 17-yearold body? Turn that around. What if they put a 17-year-old brain in a 75-year-old body? A mutant what? Given a brain transplant as the premise, this column could take any number of turns. It could discuss the ethical issue. It could discuss emotional ramifications. It could discuss physical possibilities or impossibilities. Again, the list goes on. Discussing either situation, a 17-year-old body and 75-year-old brain or 17-yearold brain and 75-year-old body, could be extremely profound. It could also be funny as hell. (How did that expression originate? What is funny about Hell? Something for one of those brains to contemplate.) If I were to look at myself in a mirror and see a young, unspeckled, unwrin-

kled, non-sagging body, my brain-waves would become shock-waves. I’m not sure the old brain could handle it. Wonder how the old husband would like it? He could probably cope ‘cause, though the body would look good, it would still be the old brain telling it what to do. Put a 17-year-old brain in this body and I fear there might be some rebellion. I can hear these joints responding to that brain’s commands with, “I don’t think so, Honey.” They say that quite often even to the old brain. Somehow, leaving out the profundity of the ethical and moral issues, the practicality of the whole idea leaves me with a feeling of something to be desired. My body and my brain have come this far together and I think that’s how they should stay. If medical science offered you a choice, would you take a new body or a new brain? Or, would you opt to keep the combination you have? Think about it.

Civic Club Celebrates Birthday

I

t was “Hats Off” to Civic Club as it celebrated their 67th birthday at a February meeting. With the club being an important presence in the area for volunteer service and generous philanthropy giving since it began in 1944, Taylor Nestlerode, who chaired the birthday meeting, chose the “Hats Off” tribute. Those attending wore their favorite

chapeau and table center pieces were a collection of beautiful and unusual hats. Special honor was paid to the 22 past presidents who attended that night, all still very active. Two charter members came, Anne Tyler, also a past president and Marjorie Peterson, fondly known as “Mama Pete” for the nursery school she has run since WWII. It was also special having

96 years-old Arlie Hahn, an honorary life member, present. She conducts a knitting class Friday morning in her home for members who knit creations for the Civic Club Shoppe, a club fundraiser. Present club president Carol Cerrina conducted the festive evening and gave greetings to all present for this special occasion.

BY WALLY HAGE No the title of this column does not refer to an unscrupulous Psychiatrist! But have you noticed? Everything is shrinking today. The World is a lot smaller. Our pocket books are shrinking do to the serious economic times. I’m shrinking! I used to be nearly six foot and now I can hardly reach 5 foot 10 in cowboy boots standing on my tippy toes. There is still another serious “Shrink” that many people are completely unaware of! It is the shrinking packaging changes that are taking place in the supermarket? Candy bars have always gone up and down in size like a yo-yo. Each time they package them as bigger and better the price is increased substantially and then that big candy bar soon after rattles around in the package but the price remains the same. Today more and more manufacturers are using this sneaky packaging process to raise prices. Paper towels have a unique concept. First they reduced the number of towel sheets on the individual roll. Then came the multiple packaging concepts. Eight rolls in an economy pack. But then greed set in and soon the economy eight roll package became the economy six roll package but at the same price. Prices of a wide range of commodities are rising and people are seriously starting to feel it in their pocketbooks. The “Shrink/ Raise” sneaky concept of price increasing has now become common practice

throughout the supermarket shopping aisles. Peanut butter manufacturers employed another concept of “Shrink/Raise”. The jar is the same circumference that it has always been but now they have a hidden “dimple” in the bottom of the jar that reduces the jar volume by two ounces. Boxes of breakfast cereal appear to be the same height and width but the manufacturers have reduced the depth of the box from front to back and filling the boxes substantially lower, thus decreasing the volume of cereal per package. Coffee used to be in a one pound can, now it is 13 oz. The three-pound can of coffee is now 33 oz. but prices in most cases remain the same. Cookbook recipes have been effected also as many are no longer accurate. A recipe calling for a can of tomato sauce which was packaged in 6 oz cans are now 4.5 oz. but maintain the same cost. Since the cans no longer matches the recipe, one and a half cans is now required to adjust to the recipe, thus leaving you with product expense and waste. Not long ago I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. After changing the toilet paper roll in the bathroom the new roll was no longer a perfect fit for the roller. Closer examination revealed the roll of tissue is now being cut nearly 1/2 inch narrower. Since many supermarket shoppers walk down the aisles scooping up products based on their

stomach, they are often unaware of the “Sneaky Shrink-Raise” packaging changes. Even the sale concept in some supermarkets is misleading. As an example the shelf might indicate an unadvertised savings if you buy five of a particular item. However, should you decide to purchase 7 of that item, the last two items are often charged at the single item price? After all of my complaining to my wife, about Sneaky/Shrink pricing she now shops with me. She said she is, “Sale-ing” down the aisles ahead of me pointing out all of the various sale items that we should consider purchasing. She is constantly checking the prices per ounce of items to be sure it is a bargain. What used to be a simple 30-minute process of Saturday shopping, it is now an afternoon fiasco. Recently, after reading my column comments about “sneaky shrinking”, my wife said, “Hey Wally, you forgot to mention the few EXCEPTIONS ... to your shrinking commentary.” Well, like a dummy, I bit on her tease, and asked her, like what exception? Her giggly reply was really hurtful! “You forgot to mention your waist line and your appetite, they’re not shrinking! And frankly dear, she said, “If you keep on complaining about this shopping issue ... you may soon have a “Shrink” in your future!”

n a decisive move to honor women whose courage and heroism have brought attention the plight of women in Muslim-majority countries, New York based non-profit Women’s Voices Now will honor Shoreh Agdashloo and journalist Lara Logan and the Egyptian women who saved her, Iranian political martyr Neda Agha– Soltan and author and former political prisoner in Iran - Roxana Saberi at the opening night celebration of Women’s Voices from the Muslim World: A Short-Film Festival. “We were so moved by the rescue of journalist Lara Logan by the Egyptian women and soldiers that we had to honor her and those brave women who rescued her,” stated WVN Executive Director Catinca Tabacaru in a recent

interview, “These good Samaritans responded to a woman in danger without thinking about her ethnicity or religious affiliation. This kind of strength and humanity is what we are drawing the world’s attention to through our collection of films. Through the media, we aspire to connect women of all societies under the common rights of freedom from abuse and injustice.” Shoreh Agdashloo: First recognized for her stellar Oscar nominated performance in HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG, Ms. Agdashloo has repeatedly chosen roles that have shown the plight and triumph of Muslim women. In 2009 she won an Emmy for HBO’s miniseries HOUSE OF SADDAM and the Satellite award for THE STONING OF

SORAYA M. Her brilliant narration of the documentary FOR NEDA for HBO in 2010 was just a foreshadowing of her continuing efforts to promote social change through education. Christina Asquith (Host/Guest Speaker) - An award-winning journalist for over 14 years, Christina has written for The New York Times, The Economist, The Christian Science Monitor, The Guardian and was a staff writer at The Philadelphia Inquirer. Her book, “Sisters in War: Love, Survival and Family in the New Iraq” is based off of the 18 months she lived in and reported from Baghdad, Iraq. Lara Logan (Honoree) – In the aftermath of the resignation of Hosni Mubarak on February 11, 2011 the American journalist lost her crew in the frenzy and was immediately swarmed by a hostile crowd that jostled her. She suffered what CBS initially called a “brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating,” from which she was eventually rescued by a group of Egyptian women and soldiers. According to The Sunday Times of London attackers used fists and flag poles against the CBS News Chief Correspondent, while wounds that remained hours later were the result of “”aggressive pinching.” Logan is reportedly anxious to return

to her post at 60 Minutes. Neda Agha-Soltan (Honoree) – Iranian icon, Neda Agha-Soltan was a 26-year-old Iranian woman who was shot to death on a Tehran street in the unrest that followed the country’s disputed election in June 2009. Soltan was described as an apolitical girl-next-door who loved traveling to Turkey where her hair did not have to be covered in public. Soltan became an instant symbol of the anti-government movement when a shocking video of her death was shared on social networking sites. The resulting HBO documentary narrated by Shoreh Aghdashloo touched audiences around the world and Soltan became an international symbol of freedom and peace. Roxana Saberi (Honoree/Guest Speaker) Roxana Saberi moved to Iran in 2003 to work as the Iran correspondent for the U.S.-based Feature Story News. She filed reports for organizations such as NPR, BBC, ABC Radio and Fox News and was working on a book about Iranian society when she was arrested on January 31, 2009. Saberi was later charged and sentenced to eight years in prison on a trumped-up charge of espionage. In May 2009, under international pressure, an Iranian court overturned the sentence, and she was

released. Since her release, Saberi has joined others in bringing attention to the situation of human rights in Iran. Saberi has published in The Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and Chicago Tribune; and been interviewed on news programs of organizations such as FOX News, ABC, NBC, CBS, BBC, CNN, PRI, NPR, and C-SPAN, as well as shows such as The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. About the Film Festival: The Film Festival, pieces of which have been screened at the New York University, American University, University of Michigan, Dearborn and Simmons College is quickly garnering attention because of the timely relevance of its critical content to world affairs. “By providing on-line access to a collection of relevant stories told by women of all faiths and backgrounds living in Muslim-majority countries, we are filling a void in today’s available information,” says WVN Director of Fundraising Miriam Wakim. “These are the exact voices that are left out of traditional news sources,” continues Wakim, “no complete representation is possible without the participation of the exact people living that life.” In addition to themed film programs, the Festival includes exciting

round-table discussions, book signings hosted by prominent authors, performance art pieces speaking to the issues addressed by the Festival and monitors playing the Festival’s experimental films. Shepard Fairey: This Los Angeles-based street artist first gained attention for the renowned Obey Giant stencil to screen prints of political revolutionaries and rock stars. Fairey is the creative genius behind the red, white, and blue Obama campaign image that swept the globe during the Obama campaign. He has donated two limited edition, numbered prints. (photos available) Charity Auction: Pieces will be auctioned from Shepard Fairey, Rachel Monosov, Carly Ivan Garcia and Yapci Ramos. Master Perfumer: Celebrated Master Perfumer and Quantum Alchemist Libby Patterson from LPO will be showcasing scent journeys featuring flights of perfumes from the “Cradle of Civilization Collection” - Night Blooming Jasmines and Roses from the Desert. The Festival also includes video booths streaming live messages from the American audience, as well as a Closing Night Gala.

Pasadena's finest dining establishments offer special prix fixe lunch and dinner menus and invite the public to redefine how you dine

P

Depending on the venue and menu offered, meals will be priced at $23, $34 or $45 for dinner or $15, $20 or $25 for lunch. (Some prices may vary for lunch and dinner, depending on the venue. Alcoholic beverages, gratuity and tax are not included in the price unless specified by the individual restaurants.) Pasadena Restaurant Week was conceived to reintroduce Pasadena as a restaurant destination and remind local residents and visitors that Pasadena offers dining experiences to satis-

fy foodies of all tastes at all price ranges. Participating restaurants will be preparing special meals at extraordinary introductory prices. Restaurants that are participating include some of Pasadena’s finest eating destinations including 1810 (eighteen ten), a/k/a An American Bistro, Bar Celona, Celestino Ristorante, Derek’s Bistro, El Cholo, El Portal, Elements Kitchen, Green Street Restaurant, Japon Bistro, Malbec, Maria’s Italian Kitchen, Mijares, Noir Food and Wine, Pie ‘n Burger, Robin’s Wood Fire BBQ and Grill, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, The Terrace at the Langham, Trevo’s at the Hilton, Villa Sorriso and Ix-Tapa.

Paul Little, president and chief executive officer of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce. “The event is generating a lot of enthusiasm from our restaurateurs who are excited to be able to showcase their extraordinary menus for visitors during Pasadena Restaurant Week.” A kick-off event is being planned for Pasadena City Hall on Tuesday, March 22nd. Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard has been invited to join the celebration on the steps of city hall. The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and Civic Association is a professional business organization. Since the earliest days of Pasadena, the Chamber has played a major role in the development of this internationally renowned city. Since 1888, when the organization was founded as the Board of Trade, the Chamber’s primary purpose has been the enhancement of both the business climate and the quality of life in Pasadena. The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce serves 1500 members.

Pasadena Community Invited to Dedication of Sidney F. Tyler Park Pasadena City Councilman Terry Tornek will host a dedication celebration at the new Sidney F. Tyler Park on Tuesday, March 15, at 10 a.m. Located on the median between South Lake Avenue and Lakewood Place (green area in attached map), Pasadena’s only officially designated pocket park was named for Tyler by the Pasadena City Council in 2010. The park features several tree species, including a large oak surrounded by two concrete semi-circles that serve as a seat wall or bench. A rose garden is

planted along the perimeter of a grassy area. Tyler, who represented District 7 on the Pasadena City Council from 1997 to 2009, devoted much of his time and energy to the protection of trees, open space and parks. Pasadena’s first tree protection ordinance was adopted during his tenure. “Sid was a strong proponent for an update to the Open Space and Conservation Element of the General Plan,” said Tornek. “He worked diligently to ensure that parks in District 7 and throughout Pasadena were given adequate

funding and attention, and he took a personal interest in renovations to parks in the district.” Tyler currently serves on the board of the directors of the Eastern Sierra Land Trust, which protects more than 6,000 acres through conservation agreements. He will be at the dedication, where a boulder bearing a plaque with his name will be unveiled and refreshments will be served. For more information call the District 7 Office at (626) 744-4737.

Arcadia Mayor Peter Amundson - Photo by Terry Miller People with signs which read, “ Are you really my Mayor?” and “ Hey, focus on YOUR Family”, plus “ Don’t use tax money for Bigotry and Hate” and “It’s good to be Gay” stood their allocated ground and asked the breakfast goers to consider all families as worthwhile and legitimate. Focus on the Family believes (among other contested issues) that marriage should only be between a man and a woman and that “reparative therapy” is

possible for gay and lesbian people. Those in attendance were closely watched by Arcadia PD and protesters were sectioned off into a safe protest zone (as is so often seen in political conventions and the like) on the south side of the Community Center, a few yards from the entrance to the building. Some of the protesting groups (Including Latino Quality Alliance, Marriage Equality USA and API

Equality) articulated their opinions further in the following press release(s) which we reproduce in part: “Divisive Rhetoric by “Focus on the Family” Group Draws Protest by LGBT Community, Families and Supporters at Mayor’s Breakfast Constituents Question Misuse of City Funds to Promote Culture of Intolerance That Excludes and Harms Gay And Lesbian Families Mayor Peter Amundson’s provocative decision to invite Rev. H.B. London, a representative of Focus on the Family, known for its anti-LGBT teachings, opositon to anti-bullying efforts in schools and promoting psychological “lesbian and gay conversion” programs stemmed from the fact that James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family created the organization in Arcadia.

Adams’ Pack Station to Recieve Historic Marker Status on April 17 Part of 75th Anniversary Celebration; Last remaining Station of it's kind in forest; Anniversary of Ownership by Deb and Sue Burgess

A

new “History Lives Here” historical marker showcasing vintage and recent photographs and descriptions of the history of the last remaining mule pack station in the Angeles National Forest – Adams’ Pack Station -- will be unveiled at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 17, as part of the station’s 75th anniversary celebration featuring live music and pulled pork sandwiches near the Chantry Flat picnic area at the end of Santa Anita Canyon Road. This is the seventh marker dedicated by the Arcadia Historical Society in less than four years. The special dedication of the Marker in the area of the station and store, which is also a celebration of five years of ownership by Deb and Sue Burgess, will include local political officials

and historians, and residents and visitors of Santa Anita Canyon. It will take place between live acoustic performances by John M from 12 noon - 2 p.m., and Cross Town Cowboys from 2:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. The public is invited to participate and enjoy pulled pork sandwiches made to order in a Dutch oven. Adams’ Pack Station History: The barn and tworoom bunkhouse/store that are still being utilized at Adams’ Pack Station in 2011 were built in 1936 by J.P. Steele, who was the first to obtain a special use permit for a pack station, outfitter store and parking lot at the end of a new road paved to Chantry Flat in 1935. Steele owned First Water Camp in the streambed directly below Chantry in the Angeles National Forest.

For the next threequarters of a century, the station’s donkeys and mules would be the lifeline for supplies to three

delivered mail, brought out garbage, sold ice cream and soda, greeted visitors and generally took

care of the canyon for 35 years. In 1984, the Adams’ sold the station to Bill’s nephew Dennis Lonergan and his wife, Jody, who ran the station for 15 years. Bouts with nature and the economy forced the Lonergan’s to sell the station and move to the city in 1999. When Kim Kelley sold the station after five years of natural disasters and the closure of the road for nearly two years, canyon cabin owners Deb Burgess and her mother Sue Burgess restored the Adams name to signify a return to the Adams’ business model with the help of day-to-day general manager Richard Conforti and other volunteers. Three Markers were dedicated in 2009, beginning with Number Four on April 29 at the Woman’s Club of Arcadia on First

Avenue, followed by two dedications during 75th Anniversary celebrations at the Arcadia Chamber of Commerce on July 16, and Santa Anita Park on opening day, Dec. 26 . Upcoming Markers tentatively planned include Lucky Baldwin’s original Oakwood Hotel and nearby train depot on First Avenue at Santa Clara, and the property along Huntington Drive that has been the location for the Pony Express Museum, the Flamingo Hotel and Santa Anita Inn The Society would like to thank the City of Arcadia for co-funding many of the Markers, including Adams’ Pack Station, which was installed by the station. The Historical Marker Committee is chaired by Scott Hettrick with members Carol Libby and Sandy Snider.

Popular English Professor, Dr. Elliot Engel to Speak

-San Marino Celebrity Series in Arcadia March 20 Laugh, learn, and be inspired by Dr. Elliot Engel as he returns for his 18th season with the San Marino Celebrity Series. This humorous and original presentation will be held in Arcadia on March 20, 2011, at 4 p.m. The dynamic and fascinating Dr. Engel will focus on the American author L Frank Baum and his bestselling children’s story, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Popular English professor Engel taught at the University of North Carolina, Duke University, and NC State. While earning his M.A. and Ph.D. at UCLA, he won the university’s Outstanding Teacher Award. Recently he was inducted into The Royal Society of Arts in England. This was a result

of Dr. Engel’s 30 years of academic work and service promoting Charles Dickens. Dr. Engel’s ten books have been published in England, Japan, and the United States. He has lectured in every state and on every continent, even Antarctica. His mini lecture series on Charles Dickens ran on PBS throughout the country. Reviewers have described Dr. Elliot Engel by saying, “His witty, engaging speaking style imparts hard, factual information while leaving his audience virtually spellbound punctuated by periods of laughter and flashes of insight.” The Celebrity Series is the primary fundraising activity of the San Marino Guild of the Huntington Hospital.

This year funds will be used to purchase seven glider rocking chairs for the PICU. Also, profits will be used to underwrite the creation of a Virtual Maternity Tour at the hospital. Guild members have been directing Maternity Tours at the Huntington for over 50 years. Next month on April 17, the 2011 Celebrity Series will conclude with “Magic Moments Tribute to the Drifters.” This program will be held at the Embassy Suites, 211 E. Huntington Drive, Arcadia. Tickets are $30 each. For information and tickets, call 626-441-1465 or 626-793-1333 or email the Guild at sanmarinocelebrityseries@gmail.com.

Pasadena Holds Special Meeting Continued from page 1 Controller John Chaing issued the results of his investigation into 18 city redevelopment agencies – of which Pasadena was one in question. The scathing report alerts the public to some gross inaccuracies in many cities across California. None of the 18 reviewed agencies met all of their filing requirements. In some cases, annual financial reports were fed to the RDA governing bodies in pieces, while others simply did not file. Auditors from the Controller’s office found that many of the RDAs’ department staff were confused by filing requirements, and the report recommends strong training

improvements for financial staff. The report also found that independent audits often failed to identify major audit violations and did not include all required information. “The lack of accountability and transparency is a breeding ground for waste, abuse, and impropriety,” said Controller Chiang. “In whatever form local redevelopment takes in the future, the level of oversight and openness must be consistent with the amount of public dollars entrusted to their care.” Two of the RDAs made questionable loans to their cities’ general fund. In Pittsburg, the agency loaned $16.6 million in fiscal year 2009-10

without interest to the city for specified projects. By the end of the fiscal year, $15.4 million was unspent, allowing the city to earn interest on those funds. The City of Calexico’s RDA loaned $1.75 million to the city in 1993 with six percent interest. The City Council, acting as the RDA board, lowered the interest rate to 1.42 percent in 2004. While the loan was supposed to be fully repaid by 2009, the city still owes $1.1 million to the redevelopment fund, based on information provided to the State Controller’s office. The full report can be found on the State Controller’s website at www.sco. ca.gov.

22nd Annual Bungalow Heaven Historic Home Tour Sunday, April 10, 2011 -10 AM to 4PM Tucked in the deep shade of the California Oaks that line its streets is a little bit of paradise, Bungalow Heaven residents say. On April 10, visitors can experience the aura for themselves as they stroll through Pasadena’s first Landmark District, touring several exquisite Arts & Crafts-era homes. The neighborhood was recently added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Hundreds of Craftsmanstyle houses, known as California bungalows, were constructed in the neighborhood between 1905 and 1925. The architecture reflected a movement away from ornate Victorian sensibilities to simpler structures in harmony with nature through the use of materials such as river rock and redwood shingles, and by including wide verandas and expansive windows. Bungalow Heaven in central-northeast Pasadena, California, is considered to have one of the largest collections of Craftsman homes anywhere in the United States. Many of the homes

maintain the authentic Arts & Crafts style, including the Mission-style furniture and décor of the period. Eight homes will be included in the 2011 tour. During the self-guided tour of the historic neighborhood and home interiors, docents will be on hand to offer commentary and answer questions. One of the homes will include a “Living History” tour, with actors portraying homeowners of the period. This year’s Living History home is a 1912 bungalow that the owners have furnished with authentic mid-century and mid-century inspired pieces. “This eclectic mix of arts & crafts architecture and mid-century furnishings works beautifully, as several of the elements of both architectural styles have commonalities,” said Kristin Stone, the acclaimed creator and producer of “Inside Private Lives.” This is the third year Kristen has written, produced and performed in the Living History Home tour. For gardeners, Elizabeth Neaves, landscape archi-

tect noted for her historical perspective on residential gardens, will present two gardening workshops, at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., with an emphasis on water-wise front-yard landscaping. The workshops will cost an additional $5 for those attending the Home Tour, and $10 per person for those wishing to attend a Garden Workshop only. Bungalow Heaven is located north of the 210 Freeway, between Lake and Hill avenues. It is bordered on the north and south by Washington and Orange Grove boulevards. More information on the tour or on ordering tickets can be found online at www.bungalowheaven.org or by calling (626) 585-2172. Tickets are $18 per person if ordered in advance. On the day of the tour, tickets, as well as maps and an informational tour brochure, will be available at McDonald Park at the intersection of Mar Vista Avenue and Mountain Street for $20 per person.

Hundreds Attend Annual Methodist Hospital's Fat Tuesday Fundraiser Continued from page 1

Neomi Biely from Vista Cove leads the parade on fat Tuesday at Santa Anita Race Track Although somewhat smaller in attendees, due in no small part to a difficult economy and also it

was election night in several area cities, the guests nonetheless had a rip-roaring time New Orleans style

albeit at Santa Anita. Reigning as this year’s king and queen over the Fat Tuesday’s festivities were long-time Methodist Hospital supporters Dave and Grace Cashion. Each year Mardi Gras proceeds support different hospital programs. This year, the event will honor Dave’s commitment to the emergency department, with proceeds going to support that aspect of the hospital’s commitment to the community. “I’m honored that the foundation would choose to support my efforts toward the hospital’s emergency department,” Dave said. “It is important that we do our part in supporting the important work being performed at the hospital.” The emergency department provides critical care to San Gabriel Valley residents 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Although seemingly smaller in attendance than the 2010 Mardi Gras, this year’s event was just as

exciting and as I can attest, the beer far better! Event Co-Chairs Jan McEachern

and Cheryl Wolf, along with their committee of 30 volunteers worked to

ensure this year’s festivities exceed expectations of over 500 attendees.

ProtestersVoice Strong Objection to Mayor Amundson's Choice of Breakfast Speaker Continued from page 6

Police kept a close eye on protesters -Photos by Terry Miller appealed to the Mayor at the City Council Meeting. It was then that many residents requested that he choose a different speaker that better represents their community’s diversity. Among those who testified at that meeting and attended today’s protest was Mrs. Marsha Aizumi, Arcadia resident and mother of a transgender youth. “I am here because I think Focus on the Family needs to be more open about their definition of “family” and about how they regard transgen-

der people, “Ms. Aizumi said. Arcadia residents questioned the mayor’s use of city funds to pay for London’s travel and accommodations. “City funds should be used to unify the community, not divide us. Spending tax payer funds to promote a religious organization that supports antiLGBT legislation and uses divisive rhetoric against LGBT families actually hurts all families and promotes division in the community,” stated Rev. Dr.

Jonipher Kwong, Director, API Equality-LA, and ordained Unitarian Universalist and Metropolitan Community Church Minister “Throughout California, and throughout the country, the LGBT community and its supporters are working to create a world in which all families are respected and embraced. Time after time, Focus on the Family has made destructive and bigoted statements that are far from supportive of families. By using religion to vilify a particular segment of society, Focus on the Family is destroying the fabric of this country. Why are tax dollars being used to support such messaging?” stated Robin McGehee, founder of GetEQUAL, a national LGBT rights group.” As Community Breakfast attendees walked from the parking lot to the entrance, protesters sang traditional peace songs, waved flags and greeted breakfast goers with “We are families too” and “Have a Nice Breakfast” and “Focus on ALL Families.”

$40 million in Redevelopment Assets Continued from page 1

cal school and community college districts. The pass through funds would continue to go to those districts according to Alvarado in Monrovia, the districts are the Monrovia Unified School District and Citrus Community College. However, it was his understand-

ing that the state could take any other money not obligated to the school or bond obligations. According to Alvarado the city’s share of the tax increment money is approximately $1.5 million per year. He anticipates that this amount could rise by 5% annually.

The city’s action on Tuesday was an attempt to create another obligation on the properties owned by the city and under the MRA’s control. If the current legislation passes in the state legislature, the control of all redevelopment agen-

cies, statewide would pass to successor boards. Each agency would have a board comprised of one member appointed by the local city council, one by the school district, one by the community college district and four by the local county. With more than 400

redevelopment districts statewide and 80 here in Los Angeles County, the bureaucracy is staggering. According to Alvarado and Darlene Sanchez, who heads up the MRA, no provisions have been outlined for funding these entities. Ironically State Con-

troller John Chaing had just issued a press release on the results of a redevelopment scoping session his office did in 18 cities. There were considerable impropoprieties noted in many cities cited in the report. We have placed the report.

The Monrovia Public Library’s Tea Fundraiser will be Saturday, March 19 1PM to 3 PM in the Library’s Community Room we will have lots of wonderful pastries, sandwiches, salads and tea, so please feel free to attend and invite others!

Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased in the Library’s Literacy Services office. The flier is attached. There are also raffle tickets for sale before and during

the event; tickets are $5 each and prizes include yoga classes, Starbucks gift cards, Unii Palette makeup cases, and more. Winners need not be present to win.

New MG Club Forming in San Gabriel Valley Under the auspices of the MG Club of Southern California, a subgroup is being formed to honor the classic British sports scar which sadly halted production in Abingdon, Berks. England in 1980. For those of you who may know not be familiar with Ye Old Speckl’d One ( the MG ), it is, without exception, the most popular British sports car ever produced anywhere in the world. The love, for which, any true MG

owner can verify and declare Ad nauseam. The rugged, timeless design is still driven worldwide and the popularity of what Jasper Gerard of the London Daily Telegraph described as “the nation’s favorite car” is only exceeded by the numbers of us who spend all their funds on that vital Lucas part to complete the restoration. Some of us have been known to collect parts catalogs and such for research and development – in lui of

an explanation to our spouses for the frequent UPS deliveries from Moss Motors or Victoria British. Gerard’s brilliant column on the MGB, is on line at: www.telegraph.co.uk/ motoring/classiccars/7398669/ MGB-the This local group of MG aficionados will be centered in the San Gabriel Valley and according to its organizer, Michael Lee, and will hold an organizational meeting this Saturday, March 12 at 9:30

a.m. at the Peach Tree Cafe in Monrovia. Toyota use to have a rather catchy ad slogan/ “Get your Hands on a Toyota, you’ll never let go.” This actually really applies to MG owners much more so than Toyota. Come on, how many 65-74 Toyotas do you see on the road? Please contact Lee by Friday, March11, to make a reservation for the breakfast. RSVP Email address: mlee@cupartner.com RSVP

Ready, Steady, Go… to Café 322 March 16 John Walker of the Walker Brothers

Singer, songwriter, and guitarist John (Maus) Walker formed “The Walker Brothers Trio” in the early 60s which achieved success around Hollywood as a rock and roll band. In 1964, Mr. Walker signed on to Smash/Mercury/Phillips Records in Los Angeles with fellow bandmate Scott (Engel) Walker. The two singers, now called “The

Walker Brothers”, created a distinctive new sound: a vocal blend which was set against new dramatic ‘wall of sound’ symphonic productions, earning them a unique place in popular music history with iconic hits like No. 1’s “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore”and “Make It Easy On Yourself”, and chart topping hits “My Ship Is Coming In”, “No Regrets”, and several others. So distinctive is The Walker Brothers sound that Roland Music Company added “Walker Brothers” samples in their recording equipment. John Walker continued his success as a solo recording artist with hits like “Annabella” , appearances on numerous television shows like The David Frost Show, The Sandy Shaw Show, Shindig, Ready Steady Go, Ninth Street A GoGo, plus performances throughout Europe. He moved back to America in the mid 80’s, and turned his attention to the recording process - eventually creating

his own studio, recording label, and a series of critically acclaimed CD’s. He is currently at work on his seventh CD… Mr. Walker is the only Walker Brother still performing and making public appearances, including many for charitable causes. Recent shows and appearances include guest starring on the German megashow “Hits Giganten”, performance on the PBS “British Invasion” production, a 60+ date tour in 2009, and another multidate tour in 2010, interviews on London BBC national TV, guest starring in Las Vegas with Peter Asher and other hitmakers of the 60s in summer 2010, and many others. In 2009, he released an autobiography (“The Walker Brothers No Regrets Our Story by John Walker and Gary Walker”), a fascinating collection of stories recalling the early days of the LA music and club scene, living in London in the “Swinging 60s” during the group’s height of popularity, all the way up to the present. Two

more studio videos were released on Youtube of Mr. Walker performing his original “I Can’t Let You Go” and “The Shadow Of Night”, tracks off his “Just For You” CD. Mr. Walker enjoys traveling and touring with his wife Cynthia, visiting with his grandchildren, woodworking, and is involved in charitable fundraising events. In 2010, Mr. Walker was diagnosed with Stage 4 Liver Cancer, received treatment, and is on the road to recovery. Although he had to cancel his UK/East Coast engagements during that time, he is once again ready take to the stage, and will perform closer to home for his first show since his diagnosis - Wednesday, March 16 at Café 322 in Sierra Madre, and will be adding more dates to his schedule. This show will also be his first with his new “The John Walker Band”… Official sites: www. thewalkerbrothersjohnwalker.com www.johnwalkerinternational.com

Oak Museum of Tolerance March 23rd and 24th, 2011 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Oak Avenue Intermediate School‘s Proactive Approach to Bullying For the past 3 years, the Counseling and Guidance Department at Oak Avenue Intermediate School, with the support of school administration and staff, has facilitated a unique event designed to educate students regarding the destructive influence of bullying. For two days in March, the school library is turned into a museum which highlights the negative impacts of bullying on young people. Titled the Oak Avenue Museum of Tolerance, the project rep-

resents a collaborative effort of staff members who saw the value in delivering the message to students that all humans deserve respect. The exhibits are comprised of student written work along with multimedia presentations. The objectives of this project are to promote acts of kindness on the campus, to give young people the tools and strategies to deal with conflict/harassment issues in a healthy way, and to make Oak a bully free school.

her passion besides her family and film career is her love of music and singing, which she has been doing since she was a child. Under contract with Verve Records at the age of 18, Kellerman has been blessed with a signature voice and style as well as an uncanny ability to make a song her own. Her current critically acclaimed CD entitled, “Sally,” was released recently. The Los Angeles Times has hailed Kellerman as “someone who has the full package of skills… required to establish herself as a first-rate jazz and blues-tinged vocalist.” Cabaret Scene Magazine has written: “Kellerman, in her own natural style, buoyed by a phenomenally youthful radiance, gives a sexy, sensuous set of blues, swing, and deliv-

ers ballads in her signature raspy, languid growl. She is easy to listen to, easy to look at and uncompromising laid back. Her new CD, choice of material and first rate collaborators show a resurgent musician with a solid Résumé and a bright future.” Music Connection Magazine wrote: Kellerman is not only gifted with a deep, rich voice, but her music also embodies a unique and original sound that is unmistakable. This lady sings with the personality of a true actress. Sally Kellerman is one class act!” Kellerman’s CD is available in all stores, on Amazon.com and on ITunes. She is married to renowned film producer and Renaissance man, Jonathan D. Krane. Kellerman adopted her sister’s daughter, Claire, in the late 60’s, and then she and Krane

adopted twin children at birth, Jack and Hannah. Kellerman was recently honored with the Art Gilmore Career Achievement Award presented by the Pacific Pioneer Broadcasters. Kellerman will soon be releasing a new CD. Kellerman also contributes time and energy to numerous worthy causes including the Hereditary Disease Foundation, Jewish Family Services, AIDS Research and the environment.
