Two Activists Agree to Settlement

– ‘Tree Sitters' Fined $60 Two of the four Arcadia so called “tree-sitters” who attempted to block the removal of acres of pristine woodlands in Arcadia earlier this year - Julia Jaye Posin, 23, of Venice Beach and Andrea Bowers, 45, of Los Angeles - pleaded no contest to one count each of trespassing in Alhambra Superior Court. The two women were fined $60, and ordered to do 10 hours of community service. The protest against the L.A. county flood control’s destruction of Arca-

Former Temple City mayor Cathe Wilson was sentenced Thursday to four years in state prison on bribery and perjury charges , closing the books on a dramatic couple of years in Temple City history But prosecutors depicted Wilson as a ringleader in the city’s largest corruption case and said she should not be spared prison.

Fire Retardant sprayed around Rose Bowl in Preparation for July 4 Continued from page 1 July weekend, Phos Chek is commonly used in wild land fires and usually red so pilots can see where they have dropped the retardant. Sierra Madre and Pasadena Firefighters under the direction of Sierra MadreFire Marshal Rich Snider mixed the white phos-chek with water and

distributed it to several water tenders which then continued on the tour of the Rose Bowl brush area and sprayed the retardant in preparation for the July Fourth fireworks display which is said to be the largest ever this year according to Rose Bowl General Manager Darryl Dunn. This retardant coats

the brush areas surrounding the Rose Bowl, which helps keep trees and grassland from burning. The main ingredients of PhosChek are phosphates and fertilizers, which helps revegetate areas after a fire is out. Fire retardant is one of the main tools firefighters use to contain growing fires in untreated areas.

BY DOROTHY DENNE Irish cont’d. By the time our noisy little car limped onto the farm in County Sligo, we were at the northernmost part of southern Ireland. I was getting a good idea of what cousin Hilary had meant when she said, “Your California wardrobe may not be quite warm enough in Ireland.” Soon I was warmed by a loaned woolen sweater, a down comforter, the peatburning cookstove and the family’s loving, all-enfolding Irish hospitality. We were ten in all - - from Diana Pearl, the 70-year-old matriarch of the four generation family, to her 6-month-old great grandson. They were aware of some of the many comforts

I enjoyed in America and they were more than a little dismayed at what few they had to offer. I soon convinced them that, having happily spent my early years on a farm, I was very content and at ease with this return to rural ways. I was even able to satisfy them that I didn’t mind taking a sponge bath in the tin basin or walking across the backyard to the privy where the door didn’t latch and the geese would sometimes come in with you. Not all visiting Americans were quite so accommodating. My first weekend there, we met a full fledged Ugly American. Their neighbor’s sister had returned from Buffalo, New York bringing her American-born teenage daughter, Kathleen, for her first visit. Diana Pearl invited them all for tea on Sunday afternoon. “Darlin’ Kathleen” came in with her nose in the air and it never went down. She declined the tea, stating,

“I’m not drinking the water here. There is no way I’m going to drink water that comes from a bucket.” She spent the entire visit making it clear that there was nothing about Ireland she liked, including the people. She commented, “I come from New York where the people are sophisticated.” I wanted to smack the snotty little twit. Diana Pearl, nearly at the end of her string too, quickly retorted, “Well, me cousin is from California where the people are famous.” In spite of this Ugly American, we made it through the tea. Her presence stilted the atmosphere and our senses felt a kind of coolness that could not be warmed, even by the peat fire. As Suzie closed the door behind “Darlin Kathleen” she turned and quipped, “Sure and ain’t she be thinkin’ her piss is punch.” We all broke up with laughter and suddenly the warmth returned to our cozy little room.

ciardulli read the sentence. Wilson then screamed and the courtroom became suddenly silent. The convicted former mayor yelled “No”…. “I can’t breathe” and slumped back in her chair appearing to pass out. The Judge removed himself from the courtroom. Sheriff’s deputies immediately cleared the courtroom to attend to Wilson’s medical condition.. Wilson was taken by ambulance accompanied by sheriff’s deputies to county hospital. Reports of a stroke have not been confirmed. Wilson was also ordered to pay more than $10,000 in restitution to developer Randy Wang. “On her behalf I apologize to the residents,” Wilson’s attorney told the court. Assistant DA Sean Hassett said he felt the sentence appropriate after weighing all the evidence On May 2, Wilson was convicted of receiving about $10,000 in cash and other bribes from Jay Liyanage in 2005-06 and subsequently lying about it.

Mimi brought with her a get out the vote crew from the Second Baptist Church which motivated an underutilized force in the community. Sandford recalled that she and Mimi had worked on many projects including the human rights commission, various school bond measure and even Sandford’s own campaign for the School Board. She summed up her friend Mimi saying she had “strengthened our community and schools.” Even before leaving the School Board Mimi expanded her service to the community.

Letter to the Editor Plymouth Elementary School’s Year-Round Education Comes to an End... On Wednesday, June 8, 2011 Monrovia Unified School District’s Board of Education voted and approved (5-0) to move one of the last year-round schools in the area to a traditional school year. The move to a traditional school year was prompted by the district’s push to start the academic year earlier in August, thus giving the students and employees of Plymouth less than a month off for summer vacation. As principal of this school, I need to set the record straight on a couple of items: 1) Year-round schooling provides a more student-friendly schedule.

Most of the school staff and parents really like the year-round pacing. It allows for students to engage in learning for three months and then to have a month break. This pattern continues throughout the year until the end of July. It is too bad that the old traditional school year’s schedule reigns supreme. The original reason of a traditional school year was to give children time to work on family farms during harvest seasons. This is no longer applicable to students in Monrovia Unified. 2) The year-round schedule did not hurt test scores. Yes, Plymouth School’s API did drop last year (after being above 800 API for the last five

years) but it had nothing to do with our calendar. I was offended when a member of the Monrovia community stood up at the Board meeting and shared this naïve perspective but I was even more upset when a Board member echoed this perspective. This Board member has not been on the campus in almost two years (to be blunt). He did not attend the Board presentation that I gave at the beginning of the school year when I discussed Plymouth’s scores. Monrovia residents should be aware that their elected officials are stating untrue facts and making decisions about their schools without doing their homework. It is my belief that the people

we trust to lead a district should be better informed and more thoughtful with the opinions that they share. Plymouth School is an amazing school whether on a year-round or traditional calendar due the dedicated staff, committed parents, and wonderful student body. Maybe it is time to really get all the facts straight and to consider alternatives to the norms of education in order to better serve our students. Sincerely, Michael Hoon, Ed.D.

Sierra Madre Library’s READ™ Campaign Features the Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team The Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team is a group of dedicated volunteers committed to saving lives in the wilderness and to outdoor safety education. In celebration of the Team’s 60th anniversary, the Library’s READ™ campaign honors the members by featuring SMSR on its third round of campaign posters and souvenir bookmarks. Founded in 1951, the Sierra Madre Search & Rescue Team -- the first search & rescue team formed in California -- averages 20 members, many with more than 20 years of experience in wilderness search and rescue. Responding to approximately 60 callouts each year, SMSR serves areas extending from Chantry Flats to Mt. Baldy, Mt. San Jacinto, and Mt. San Gorgonio, from to Baja

California through the High Sierra and into northern California. Sierra Madre citizens take great pride in SMSR. All members are trained in mountaineering, search and man-tracking, high-angle rescue, specialized mountain rescue systems, communications, field navigation, technical rock and ice climbing, helitac techniques and survival skills, and are certified to the level of emergency medical technician (EMT) or higher; members supply and maintain their own personal equipment. The Team owns several fully equipped vehicles to Affiliated with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept. as high-risk civilian volunteers and a member of the national Mountain Rescue Association (MRA), the Sierra Madre Search and Res-

cue Team is financed solely by private contributions and receives no financial support from any tax funds. The READ™ campaign was created in 1985 by the American Library Association, and has proven immensely effective in promoting literacy among all age groups. Comedian Bill Cosby was the first notable to appear on a poster; since then, more than 150 celebrities have donated their images for these posters, which convey the simple, but potent message: READ. Eager to collaborate with the Library on this poster, Larry Smith, President of SMSR, brought members of his team together to be pictured with their book selections in front of a rescue truck. Eric Triplett, Vice President, said, “The partnership between

SMSR and the Sierra Madre Library, both now and in the past, has been beneficial to both organizations. It has given the team the opportunity to interact with the community with preventative search and rescue programs at the Library, and it makes the community not only aware of wilderness safety but also that the Sierra Madre Library is a great resource for knowledge about the outdoors.” Every three months throughout 2011, a new READ poster will honor a Sierra Madre resident active in the local community posing with a favorite books. Souvenir bookmarks bearing the same design are available for takeaway at the Library, 440 West Sierra Madre Boulevard, Sierra Madre. 626-3557186. www.sierramadre.lib. ca.us.

Fireworks Illegal in Unincorporated Los Angeles County Areas

C

ounty Mayor Michael D. Antonovich reminds residents preparing to celebrate the Fourth of July that fireworks of any kind are illegal in Los Angeles County. “While some cities allow “safe and sane” fireworks, fireworks, of any kind, are illegal in Los Angeles County,” said Antonovich. The penalties for possession or use of illegal fireworks can range from a

fine of up to $1000, to one year in county jail. “With fire season upon us, it is vital that our County residents understand that fireworks can cause brush fires, house fires, millions of dollars in damages, injuries and even death,” said Antonovich. “Our firefighters risk their lives protecting lives and property -- they deserve our help in preventing further fire emergencies.” Certain products like

m-80’s and m-100’s are considered explosives and are a felony to possess with penalties as high as 16 months in state prison. Parents are also liable for any damage or injuries caused by their children using fireworks. Mayor Antonovich encourages residents who see illegal fireworks to contact their local Sheriff’s or Police station.

BY SUSAN MOTANDER Superintendent of Schools Linda Wagner defended the actions of the Monrovia Board of Education last week when they voted to reduce the hours of library aids throughout the district. According to Wagner, no libraries would be closed in the district and that this was an attempt by the school district to keep libraries in the schools. Wagner explained that it was a choice of what to cut and that the current state budget was forcing the school district to make cuts somewhere.

“Where should be make reductions?” she asked, “Should it be class size, the number of teachers, what?” Wagner went on to say that it was impossible to “Provide a world class education on a Third World Budget.” She asked the community to suggest where reductions should be made. Wagner also suggested that rather than merely complaining about the cuts to the Board of Education, the community should contact their respective legislators to ask for increased funding for schools.

Local Alternative Private School Introduces Edible Garden to Promote Healthier Living and Life Skills Development Fusion Academy & Learning Center Pasadena Breaks Ground on Campus Project In its ongoing effort to promote physical and intellectual wellness, Fusion Academy & Learning Center Pasadena, a 6-12 grade alternative college-prep private school with oneto-one classes, is breaking ground on an edible garden on campus that will promote healthier living as well as valuable life skills development. Fusion Academy’s “garden-to-table” workshop will give students a basic introduction to gardening and the tasty home-

grown offerings at local Farmers Markets, as well as skills in preparing and cooking fresh produce. A small, 3x5 garden located on campus will feature a variety of herbs and fruits and vegetables. The project will provide fresh food and healthful options for both students and employees throughout the year. The program was the brainchild of Mo Li, a science teacher at Fusion Academy, who was inspired by the success of similar programs at UC Berkley (Alice Waters Edible Garden) and UC Santa Cruz (Life Lab). “An edible garden

aligns perfectly with Fusion Academy’s commitment to educating students to make healthy lifestyle choices,” Li said. “I’ve been impressed with how UC Berkley and UC Santa Cruz have implemented their edible garden concepts. I would expect that our students and families will embrace this project to make it a sustainable part of our campus and critical part of our curriculum for years to come.” For more information on the Edible Garden and other summer program offerings at Fusion Academy Pasadena, visit www.FusionPasadena.com.

Adams Pack Station to Celebrate 75 Years in Business with Sierra Madre Chamber Mixer/Ribbon Cutting The Sierra Madre Chamber of Commerce will hold a rare Sunday Mixer and Ribbon Cutting on July 17th from 5 to 7pm, to help Adams Pack Station celebrate 75 years in business. The Pack Station, located at Chantry Flat at the top of Santa Anita Ave., still runs a weekly pack of mules into the Santa Anita Canyon to bring provisions and supplies such as propane tanks, food, mattresses, and other items too large or heavy to carry in by

hand to the cabins located in the hills. The Pack Station’s general store will be open for business to hikers and others, but those who pay to attend the mixer ($7/Chamber members, $10/non-members) will receive a ticket they can redeem for the Pack Station’s well regarded Pulled Pork sandwiches and a glass of wine. Beer and other beverages will be available for purchase. Live entertainment will

be provided by Rubber Soul, a Beatles tribute band. In addition to the ribbon cutting, a business card drawing will be held for door prizes donated by the Chamber and Chamber members. Those attending who can do so may want to consider carpooling up the hill, because if there is a strong turnout in combination with good weather for hiking, there may be difficulty finding parking.

Regional Government Committee Divided over Grant Management Continued from page 1 al from the committee, alleging that Conway’s affiliation with the SGVCOG’s staff services company creates a conflict of interest that renders him unfit for his executive position. Diamond Bar councilwoman Carol Herrera seconded the suggestion a few days later. Conway is the owner and president of Arroyo Associates, Inc., an Alhambrabased management consulting firm. The SGVCOG has an annual staff services contract with the firm for $782,154, an amount meant to be split between Conway, four other full-time employees, and two part-time employees. King has alleged that Conway’s true pay significantly exceeds the amount that he should be receiving under the terms of the contract. In April, Caltrans delivered a lengthy audit to Conway, requesting reimbursement for a $245,130 Gold Line grant that it claimed the agency had mismanaged between 2006 and 2008. The grant was intended for developing the Gold Line Foothill Extension, a project that would link 11 communities east of Pasadena to the existing metro line. The 19-page audit alleged that Conway and his company not only handled the grant poorly, but also received $36,937 in financial compensation for their

work. The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Public Integrity Division is currently investigating the matter on behalf of a complaint made to the department in May. This is not the first time that the SGVCOG has received an audit from Caltrans. In 2006, Caltrans issued a comparable audit that criticized Conway’s conflict of interest as executive director, in addition to raising several questions about the committee’s management. In response to the Caltrans audit, councilmembers voted to postpone the approval of the 2011-2012 fiscal year budget until the establishment of a part-time committee position that would oversee grant management. Further complicating matters, San Dimas resident Gil Aguirre has sued the committee on grounds that its practices violated the California Public Records Act, a 1968 law mandating the disclosure of public records unless the governing body in question has a valid reason to conceal them. The lawsuit claims that the audit should be public record because various aspects have been addressed in a public setting, thereby rendering it a matter of public interest. The SGVCOG is a joint powers authority comprised of representatives from the

San Gabriel Valley’s 31 cities, along with members of the area’s three unincorporated communities and three water agencies. The agency, founded in 1994 to address pressing regional issues, is responsible for overseeing and responding to housing development matters, air and water quality concerns, and similar issues of public interest. The SGVCOG has several policy-focused subcommittees, each one specializing in a different policy area: environmental issues, housing and economic concerns, and transportation. The agency also contains a series of advisory and technical committees, including an executive committee and committees in charge of engineering and community development. Two councilmembers from each city are represented. Delegates and alternates from local cities include Peter Amundson and Gary Kovacic from Arcadia, Mary Ann Lutz and Becky Shevlin from Monrovia, Terry Tornek and Margaret McAustin from Pasadena, Nancy Walsh and Joe Mosca from Sierra Madre, and Fernando Vizcarra and Tom Chavez from Temple City. The council’s new officers, elected in May, are scheduled to take office on the first day of July.

Ikaika Mau Loa (Strength Forever) Arcadia Relay for Life Raises over $118,000 BY AMY LEONG Sitting on the sidelines of the track, the children shouted, “Look at the lights! Look at the lights!” These were the lights that each individual held in their hands, to light up the pathway of the track, to light up the spirits of those who lost loved ones, and to light up the world with their message: Celebrate, Remember, Fight Back. These were not just any lights, but each glow stick that lit the track that night was a representative of all those touched by cancer. It was the famous tradition of the luminaria ceremony, where each individual held a glow stick soon to be broken. First, they were cracked for those who had family members who were affected by cancer. Second, they were broken for any friend that was touched by this terrible disease.

Relay for Life, a 24 hour event held on June 25-26, celebrated these survivors and loved ones who passed away from this disease. As we took the final lap around the Santa Anita Race Track that night, it was truly an inspiration to fight back against cancer because instead of fighting alone, hundreds of us stood together, walking as one big ohana. Ohana means family and family means no one gets left behind. In great enthusiasm, we gathered our courage to fight and lifted our spirits up to the heavens to show cancer our strength. Going up against all these challenges, we have heard cries for the cure, smelled the sweet taste of freedom as survivors, and have cherished everyday for those who have been touched by cancer. We have felt ourselves let go of the

little things in life and pledged ourselves to keeping the cause alive. Relay for Life has become so much more than life changing. Being a part of Relay is what you feel in your heart and soul, and going out of your way to spread cancer awareness and love to those around you. With over 700 active participants, Arcadia’s Relay for Life rose to the top with a donation of over $118,000 dollars for the American Cancer Society. The money will help go toward discovering new medicines, supporting patients in need, and funding other supplies to get one step closer to the cure. 17-year-old Monique Salazar, a cancer survivor of AML leukemia, said “I am so proud of all the support people have given! I am happy to be a survivor with this kind of

Continued from page 4 cals whom he assumes may take matters into their own hands depending upon the outcome of the trial. Without giving away the denouement, suffice it to say, after the dramatic conclusion the town learns of an incident which occurred shortly before in Boston. British troops had fired upon a crowd of Colonists killing five, an event we know as the Boston Massacre. Several of the scenes in the movie are quite well done. The opening sequence which occurs the year before features a realist tavern scene in which the locals arrest several British soldiers. The patrol was dressed in civilian clothes and claimed they were attempting to apprehend deserts. They are not believed and the local citizens inadvertently identify the soldiers as kidnappers and unwittingly allow the deserts to escape. The arrest of the soldiers

leads to the incarceration of the soldiers and leads to the meeting between Sarah and Wheedle. The result is the child she bears later. The dramatic tavern scene is dimly but appropriately lit as are the courtroom scenes later in the film. The trial is depicted as occurring in a cramped equally dimly lit tavern room decorated with what appears to be time period appropriate fittings. The feels in both scenes works well. It is not that the movie is without certain historical inaccuracies. The dialog is not time appropriate and there is an amazing lack of the usual British accents: North Umbrian, Scottish, etc. However this does make the plot easier to follow. In all, the movie is fascinating, fast paced and gripping. In all, the movie is over all a darned good yarn.

The San Gabriel Valley Mosquito & Vector Control District has confirmed two more crows infected with West Nile virus and is awaiting confirmation on an additional bird. The birds were collected from the cities of Baldwin Park and Covina. Last month, the District reported its first indication of WNV activity in an infected crow collected from the city of West Covina. Of added concern, 62% of Los Angeles County dead birds reported to the State WNV Hotline last week were from the San Gabriel Valley. “This is not good news,” said Kenn Fujioka, Assistant Manager at the District, “WNV activity is increasing rapidly now that the weather has warmed. Residents must take an active role in addressing this public health problem.” Residents are encouraged to: 1. Report all dead birds to

him most was the number of youth volunteers who were involved with Relay in the past two years. Club Hope from Arcadia High School’s Hope Can Cure Cancer Club raised over $4,000, while many other teams also raised this amount and greater. Fundraising all day with crafts, food items, games, homemade gifts, and raffles, each team did their best to decorate their campsite with the Polynesian theme, promote their cancer for the booth, and raise money for a good cause. Tupua Productions even promoted the Hawaiian theme even more with a hula dancing show and juggling fire torches during the night. Enthusiasm and cheers from team members rose when the Miss Relay Contest began, represented by a male from each team dressed in

coconut bras and hula skirts to win victory, while whoever was thought to be best dressed would raise the most donations. Most importantly, however, is why we choose to relay and what we have did, done, have been doing, or will do to help stop the spread of cancer. Team Captain Chair LeAnn Solis said, “I relay to honor those who have lost their battle to cancer, those who are battling now, and those who are survivors.” Together, as one big Ohana, let’s not only fight back against cancer, but win victory over the number of lives cancer has touched. Let us keep our strength and pride to fight on and let’s continue our Ikaika Mau Loa, strength always and forever.

More West Nile Virus Found – Neglected Pools May be to Blame

Tea Party Premiers in Monrovia: It's a darned good yarn daughter whom the mother, Sarah Pine refuses to identify. She continues to defend Sgt. Bob Wheedle, the British soldier, maintaining that he had returned to the small town to marry her. The central character is the local tavern owner, Silas Rhodes, who also happens to be the the local Justice of the Peace. Silas is portrayed by James Patrick Riley, the show’s writer and director who presides over the ensuing trial. Complicating the issue is the interest of the colony’s British appointed governor who sends an attorney to defend Wheedle. The attorney is somewhat unscrupulous in his dissent and vitriolic in his questioning of Sarah Pine. The trial’s outcome is also influenced by pressure brought to bear on two of the three judges by the governor’s office. The local justice, Rhodes, comes under pressure himself from the lo-

support.” Diagnosed at age two, Monique went into full remission at age six and is a proud graduate from Bishop Amat High School in La Puente. A leading speaker in the opening ceremony with her mother, her inspiring story gives us all hope and strength that one day we will live in a cancer-free world. It is true that Relay is nothing without the support of our 49 teams, 719 participants, 25 committee members, and 1 event chairman. Event Chairman, Mr. Carter Spruill exclaimed, “It was an honor for me to be the event chairman over the past two years and in that two year period, even in these tough economic times, we rose over a quarter million dollars for The American Cancer Society and the fight against cancer.” But what amazed

One neglected swimming pool can breed millions of mosquitoes placing an entire neighborhood at risk. The District’s annual Helicopter Surveillance Program has identified a record number of neglected pools this year. All of the WNV infected crows have been collected from areas with a high density of neglected pools. “We have already seen an unbelievable increase in neglected pools. So far, 827

have been spotted from the air, nearly twice that seen at the same time last year, and we’re not finished yet” notes DeAndre Ware, the District’s Technician overseeing the Helicopter Surveillance Program. “Our partnership with Pasadena Police Department’s Foothill Aerial Support Team has been a life saver, literally” noted Fujioka. “Suppressing early-season mosquito populations is a critical component of our proactive WNV suppression program.” To combat this problem, the District is hiring additional field personnel and encourages the media to assist us in getting this information out to the public.

La Salle’s Deneen and Van der Linde Sign to Play Water Polo Two Activists Agree to Settlement

Senior and two-time La Salle Hall of Fame inductee, Ricky Deneen recently signed and accepted admittance to Whittier College and received the John Greenleaf Whittier Merit Scholarship to play water polo for Whittier College. Ricky has earned eight Varsity Letters at La Salle. Four years on both the water polo and swim teams. Twice he has earned Most Valuable Player and First Team All-League honors. Seven years of club experience with Rose Bowl and numerous playing opportunities in the annual USA Water Polo Association’s Junior Olympics, along with wonderful guidance from La Salle’s Coach Jeff Chase, has enabled him to develop into a Division 1 player. However, his interest in being an impact player immediately to a program and being better able to complete his undergraduate major in four years made it much more realistic to play

for Whittier than to pursue a Division 1 school. Ricky stated that Coach Chase really helped him keep his focus on the future, using abilities and leadership in the pool to help him in the next stage of his life. After entertaining interest from a number of colleges, it was Whittier’s Coach Justin Pudwill’s “persistent pursuit of me” that became the driving reason for choosing his team and school over the other Division 3 schools. Coming up one goal short of winning their division last year, “Coach Pudwill hopes my strong outside shot will really help win a championship for Whittier next season.” Adding to the desire to continue playing water polo at the collegiate level is the brand new swim facility being built on campus. Plus Whittier’s level of play has kept them at the top of their division. Ricky intends to major in business at Whittier and looks forward to taking his talent to the next level. Senior Kyle Van der Linde has signed to attend and play water polo at Pitzer College in the fall, where he will join the Pomona-Pitzer water polo team. Kyle transferred to La Salle as a junior,

and immediately became a vital part of the varsity water polo team. He was awarded Most Inspirational Player in his junior year, and was given the Coach’s Award as a senior. He has lettered in both water polo and swimming at La Salle, where he benefitted from the enthusiastic and professional coaching of Coaches Jeff Chase and Nicki Maichrowicz. He is also a member of the Rose Bowl Water Polo Club team, where his team took first place in the US Club Championships, the Gold Medal in the South Florida International Tournament, first place in the John Hale Tournament, and third place in California Cup, among other highlights. He

credits Rose Bowl Coaches Dan Leyson and Jason Falitz with teaching him a great work ethic, and the sport of water polo for teaching him how to attain success both in and out of the pool. Kyle is very happy to be able to combine the love of his sport with a college the caliber of Pitzer, where he will also attend classes at Pomona, Harvey-Mudd, Scripps and Claremont-McKenna. He presently plans to major in Business and Ethical Green Technology, with a minor in engineering. He is grateful to La Salle for preparing him so well for that endeavor, and to Coach Chase for his unfailing support of his college plans.

Over a Thousand Grocery Workers Protest Expired Contract - Demand Better Health Benefits Continued from page 1 neighboring communities and some as far away as Paso Robles. Adding their voice to the 62,000 grocery workers represented by United Food and Commercial Workers, community leaders urged Vons, Ralphs and Albertsons to negotiate a fair contract that affords workers the opportunity to make ends meet instead of burdening taxpayers with

health care costs. “While these grocery store chains scored $5 billion in profits over the last three years, they want to shift the cost of health care to workers and taxpayers to boost their profits another three percent,” said Rick Icaza, President of UFCW Local 770. “We want a fair contract that respects the workers who are the backbone of these profitable

companies.” According to organizers, the three national grocery chains at the bargaining table made $5 billion in gross profits over the last three years, paying $500 million in dividends to Wall Street and investors. The health care proposal being pushed by Ralphs, Vons and Albertsons is said to potentially boost their profits another Arcadia Police officers were on hand to keep the peace during the union march and rally on Wednesday morning. – Photos by Terry Miller

3% by shifting $450 million of health care costs to employees. The shift also would burden taxpayers by forcing workers unable to afford these higher premiums onto Medicare and the state’s Healthy Families program. If implemented, management’s proposal could “amount to as much as 50% of the average fulltime worker’s take home pay, as much as an additional $11,000 in costs. The overwhelming number of grocery workers today is permanent part-time employees whose average

annual income hovers around $17,000” According to a press release handed to media Tuesday. “Our hard work is one of the reasons they have been able to score record profits. We only want what is fair. Right now they believe we’re too afraid to walk out, but they don’t understand that for a lot of us, our health care plans are the only way we can make ends meet,” said 21year Albertsons checker Kelly Pierce. While talks presided over by a federal mediator are still ongoing, UFCW

members voted in April to authorize a strike if the grocery chains insist on replacing their current healthcare plan. Tuesday’s event was one of three across the Southland at the corporate headquarters of Vons, Ralphs and Albertsons. Community leaders at all three locations urged the companies to come to fair agreement that respects workers and their rights. Calls to Von’s headquarters were not immediately returned.

ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER MEETS PUCCINI The Sierra Madre City Council and Redevelopment Agency allocated $75,000 for new playground equipment geared towards children 2 -5 years old in Memorial Park. Residents will enjoy a well-designed, accessible and beautiful play area. It is a wonderful space for kids; bright and colorful, it encourages the youngsters to run around and play.

The new playground also incorporates traditional equipment such as swings (two belt seat swings and two tot seat swings) and a dragon fly totter, which will appeal to a variety of ages. The tiny tots have loved the sand pit area which has been kept in the process of renovating the playground. The installation is expected to finish this week.

2012 Season will Relocate to Santa Anita Park

POLICE BLOTTERS

Continued from page 1 2012, August 11, 2012, August 25, 2012 - for a total of five concerts. “Santa Anita Park is thrilled to announce its new association with Cal Phil and all of the exciting things that we have in store for concertgoers beginning next summer,” said George Haines, President of Santa Anita Park. “We take great pride in providing the Southland with the finest entertainment, and are pleased to not only offer first class horse racing, but now the best of summer concerts.

The California Philharmonic is a front runner among orchestras—what better place for them to perform than at one of the world’s greatest outdoor pleasure grounds.” With table and lawn seating on the plush green grass of the infield and the area’s best unobstructed view of the beautiful San Gabriel Mountains, Santa Anita Park is the perfect backdrop to the great music performed by the California Philharmonic under the masterful direction of Maestro Victor Vener. But

that is just the beginning. Cal Phil’s new summer home also boasts many amenities that will enhance the Festival on the Green experience for both the audience and musicians. “Cal Phil is honored to call Santa Anita Park its new summer home beginning June 2012. I personally have always been a huge fan of the venue and everything it has to offer ranging from top tier horseracing to amazing views and atmosphere,” said Vener, who founded Cal Phil more than 15 years ago. “The energy at Santa Anita Park is palpable and we are thrilled to share the 2012 Festival on the Green concert series with our longtime followers as well as an ever-expanding new audience.” Among its many distinctions, Santa Anita Park has ample and convenient onsite parking to accommodate every attendee, plentiful permanent restrooms and four full bars offering not only beer and wine but premium spirits. There will also be live video of the performance on

jumbo video screens, allowing music lovers to witness the intricacy and wonder of music making, whether they are seated at a table or lounging on the lawn. The unique space also features corporate BBQ pits for pre-party festivities and pre-concert family-friendly activities that include pony rides, a musical instrument petting zoo and playground for the kids. While attendees are able to bring their own picnic or fine bottle of wine, why would they when Santa Anita Park’s award-winning chefs will prepare a wide range of delicious dishes available for concert patrons to purchase on site. Continuing Cal Phil’s Festival on the Green tradition, there will also be live jazz music pre-concert and, something new, post-concert. The live music will continue into the evening during the public after party where concert-goers will have the opportunity to speak with the Maestro and featured performers.

“Solid Gold Cadillac” is just the ticket at Sierra Madre Playhouse BY FRAN SYVERSON “Ripped from the headlines.” But expect a lighter tone—much lighter—when you see “Solid Gold Cadillac” at the Sierra Madre Playhouse. The play is definitely a parody of real-life news, and the characters are so overdrawn as to seem almost caricatures. That said and understood, we can settle in to an evening of watching a naïve widow challenging the CEOs of General Products Corp. as she tries to protect her 10 shares in the company. The resonant voice of Barry Schwam weaves a thread of a faux Cinderella fairytale throughout the play. The parallels are tongue-in-cheek, and set the wry comedic mood of “Solid Gold Cadillac.” As the curtain opens we see four of the bigwigs happily promoting themselves into better jobs and fatter salaries. A rather glitzy lady sits passively through the business meeting…until she starts rummaging through the agenda. Then she starts firing questions—how much do you get paid?...for how many meetings?...that last how long? As Mrs. Laura Partridge, Georgan George emerges as both innocent and feisty. She’s annoying and persistent. After much dithering and putting their heads together, the bosses decide to hire her to keep her quiet. Norman Igar plays T. John Blessington, the top dog. Other board members are Kent Vaughan as Alfred Metcalfe, Aric Cushing as Warren Gillie, and Tony Cichetti as Clifford Snell,

all playing the conniving big shots to the hilt. So Laura Partridge is hired, but not put to work. She even has a young secretary, Amelia Shotgraven (Melanie Rashbaum) who has been instructed to block Laura’s efforts. To no avail, for Laura soon makes her own job—writing letters to other minor stockholders seeking their support in making the bosses accountable for their actions. The firm also sends her to Washington to meet with Edward L. McKeever, another partner but an honest one. Michael Bruce portrays him as overstressed and frenetic in a comic sequence of office gymnastics. Can Laura and McKeever thwart the wrongdoers? “Solid Gold Cadillac” also offers a smidgen of romance and sexy intrigue. Jessica Fox, tall and lithe, plays several roles ranging from a model, well-ogled by the gents, to a cameo part of little old lady. Rounding out the cast are Jeremy Mascia, Sasha Golberg, Kevin Allesee and understudy Eric Delgado. This comedy, written half a century ago, has a theme as current as tomorrow’s news. But its interpretation is basically farcical, and is to be enjoyed for its laughs even while it may give us pause for serious reflection. “Solid Gold Cadillac” by Howard Teichmann and George S. Kaufman is directed by Ken Salsman and produced by Ward Calaway. Mike Dessin is stage manager; assistant

stage manager is Julianne Bull. David Calhoun cleverly designed the set with four “offices” on two levels, with the action flowing from one to another. As lighting designer and master carpenter, he heads the construction crew composed of Anne Marie Atwan, Karen Young, Dessin, and Calaway. Atwan is also property manager. Lois Tedrow’s costuming typifies the roles, from svelte glamour for Ms. Fox to business-suited men. Poster art is by Kate Vandevender. Program design and layout is by Footlights Publishing., Inc. Calaway did the production photography, and Philip Sokoloff the publicity. “Solid Gold Cadillac” will continue at the Sierra Madre Playhouse weekends through July 30. Curtain time is 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2:30 p.m. for Sunday matinees. Admission is $20 general, $17 for seniors (65+) and students (13-17), and $12 for children 12 and under. The Sierra Madre Playhouse is located at 87 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., Sierra Madre. City lots offer free parking. Restaurants on Baldwin Avenue and Sierra Madre Boulevard offer pre -theater dining.
