Arcadia Stabbing Victims On Saturday July 9, at approximately 2:20p.m., the Arcadia Police Department received a call regarding a fight in the parking lot located at Duarte Road and Golden West. When officers arrived, no fight could be located and all parties involved in the fight had left the location. At approximately 2:40p.m., Methodist Hospital called the Police Department and reported that three stabbing victims had come into the Emergency

Sometimes We Make Mistakes BY TERRY MILLER In our last edition (July 7, 2011), we printed an opinion piece, which caused a certain amount of debate in this community. As is often the case, when I lead with my emotions, my communication is not always lucid. As a result, I offended some members of our community and business leaders I respect. I responded to, what I measured to be the hypocrisy of a local blogger whose views are frequently dissimilar to my own. This is not an attempt to minimize my culpability for using poor judgment and

an inappropriate response to said blogger. Opinions (fueled by strong emotions) are like that. We all have opinions, yet ours do not always seem as odious as perhaps they might appear to others. Unlike facts, opinions cannot be checked. In my column I referenced a well-known animals rights group (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals –PETA) - that became involved in a disagreement connected with an elephant that was slated to be included in the July 4 parade in Sierra

Madre. PETA had alleged that this particular elephant had a history of abuse. In the same column, Santa Anita Race Track was mentioned in a quote from PETA’s website - which had no relevance to my piece. This was PETA’s opinion, not my own nor that of Beacon Media Inc. I am an animal advocate - not aligned with any organized group. I recognize that PETA have strong opinions regarding all animals that some are controversial and

That’s the kind of car I was looking for, I told the used-car salesman. He blanched. “What kind?” “I don’t care; I really don’t know cars,” I replied. “Just small and copper-colored.” He warned me that he might not be able to find that color. So did the salesman at the next place I shopped. He, too, blanched. Both of them, I could just imagine, had the same one-word thought: “Women!” When you lose a loved one, my husband and I had learned years before while attending a “grief group,” you should try to remember that, despite all the downside, there may also be some pluses. That maybe some part of your life might now be possible where it hadn’t been before. And that is why I was shopping for a copper-colored car. It so happened that a couple of years earlier, we had flown to Seattle for our great-niece’s wedding. Our rental car was a tasteful copper color, and I reveled in it. My husband merely tolerated it. What kind of car was it? No idea—as I said, I don’t know cars. But such a gorgeous color! Once back home, every time our 10-year-old sedan gave a hiccup that could prove fatal, I suggested that we might replace it with a copper-colored newer one. I think “like a flat tire” accurately describes my husband’s reaction to the idea. The parrying continued, with me always mentioning copper-colored. But it was only a teasing game, for I never would have inflicted on him a car in a color he both loathed and

considered frivolous and feminine. Now, however, life was different. My husband was no longer alive. And the old sedan gasped again. A costly oil-pan leak was its death knell. Both my mechanic and my son said, “Get rid of it; it doesn’t owe you a thing.” So now I could choose copper if I wanted to—one of those heretofore mentioned upsides possible even though one was still grieving. As I saw the old car’s demise approaching, I visually “shopped” cars whenever I was on the freeway or around town. At first, the Cube really caught my eye. Described as cartoonish by some, it nonetheless appealed to me with its squarish shape and especially with its innovative, asymmetrical, wraparound right rear window. A couple of other square models looked interesting, too. The ScionxB, the Kia Soul. (My goodness! Was I actually beginning to pay attention to car names?) I decided a copper-colored Cube was my dream car. All too soon I found out it truly was a dream— it didn’t exist. Chocolate brown, yes; deep green, yes; copper, no. The more I ogled cars while driving on the freeway, the more I realized that—while I liked the new square look—it was when I saw a copper-colored one that I really salivated. Copper was rare, but when I saw it I loved it. When I checked the Internet, I discovered several new brands being shown in copper, sunburst, or ginger. But I really didn’t want to spend the money for a new car. So back to the used-car dealer I went. And to both of our surprise, he soon located a copper-colored Su-

zuki. Eureka! Within days it was mine. Everywhere I went, people noticed my snazzy car. With its distinctive color, I felt almost as if I were driving one-of-a-kind. But before long, my enthusiasm began to lose its edge. Having the car I’d so long teased my husband about was, I soon found, a bittersweet triumph. While I did—and do—enjoy it, it is also a reminder of how much I miss him. Nor am I any longer driving a one-of-a-kind color. Within two months of my purchase, those new models I’d spotted on the Internet began sprouting up on every highway. Each time I ventured forth, I’d see at least three or four of them, all variations on the copper color. Some are more like pumpkin, others almost russet. “There’s one,” I’d say to myself or my passengers. “There’s another!” An orange Kia. A sunburst Mazda. A Toyota Element. Even a Jeep. “Yep, there’s another one.” Finally my kids put the brakes on my comments. “That’s enough, Mom; we see them.” So, yes, I now have lots of copper-colored comrades on the road. I’m no longer the sensation I was, and all within a few short months! Still, I maintain my claim to a sense of uniqueness. After all, I am probably the only one who chose her car as a statement about moving on, looking for whatever upside I could find following my husband’s death. I now could have my small copper-colored car that we never would have chosen together. If only it didn’t seem so bittersweet.

Because I coupled these two issues in this column, an inference was made that I concur with PETA regarding Santa Anita. This is simply, not accurate. Beacon Media has proudly covered Santa Anita Race Track and its growth over the years from the birth of this newspaper group 16 years ago when The Arcadia Weekly was first published. Beacon Media is and had always been a strong supporter and advocate of the horse racing industry at one of the world’s most famous race tracks, Santa Anita. We have photographed countless meetings and Breeders’ Cup events; covered stories from every angle of the track

and never once had cause to believe Santa Anita was anything but a first class organization with the safety of the horses, jockeys, employees and race fans their number one priority. We’ve covered Santa Anita with the utmost respect for its management and history. I would also like to personally apologize to Mr. John Shear and his family for any misunderstanding the opinion piece caused. This newspaper group has nothing but deference and admiration for Mr. Shear and his heroic act earlier in the year when he saved a child’s life by putting his own body in the line of bolting horse. The 90-yearold hero, John Shear, deserves nothing less than complete admiration and support of his community. Mr. Shear,

BY DOROTHY DENNE Meeting and visiting the many cousins provided a number of the highlights of my Irish vacation. After settling in with the family on the farm, the next I met was Diana Pearl’s sister Sadie and her family. This was special because the two families had quarreled and had not spoken for over two years. They called a truce so they could meet their American cousin. The families spent a cheerful day together and parted with hugs and happy farewells. End of the day, end of the truce. None of them spoke again until Sadie’s wake four years later.

I especially liked Diana Pearl’s oldest daughter, Pearl. She had turned her home into a very charming Bed and Breakfast to supplement the meager income brought in by their farm. I spent a lot of time with her both at her place and “ours”. My first dinner at her house included the traditional Irish potatoes boiled in the jackets. I was eating away at mine when I became aware the talking had stopped and they were all staring at me. Reg cleared his throat and said quietly, “You’re supposed to skin them first.” I just smiled and answered, “At home we always eat the skin.” Pearl’s youngest piped in with, “Yeah, but I bet you wash ‘em before you cook ‘em.” Over the weeks I met a lot of family and a lot of neighbors. I learned much about the Irish ways. We

women spent many an evening sitting around someone’s kitchen table drinking tea and sharing thoughts. The men drank together too but it wasn’t tea. It was Poteen, Irish moonshine. I never saw Pearl’s husband, Ivan, totally sober the entire time I was there. The more Poteen he drank, the heavier became his brogue. On my last day in Ireland we all gathered at Pearl’s for a final mid-day dinner. Ivan was a little late arriving at the table. He kissed me on the cheek and said, “If ye smell a bit of the liquor on me breath ‘tis ‘cause I went to communion this marnin’. “ With my own, newly Irish-honed, wit I chided, “Glory be to God, man, I’d like to see the size of that chalice.” Said he, “Aah, we’ll miss ye Lass.”

Sierra Madre Playhouse’s ‘Cinderella’ as Charming as They Come Participation Musical Lets Children Live The Story

Jane Fuller and Shirley McConnell as Cinderella and her fairy godmother.

For last few Saturdays at the Sierra Madre Playhouse, June Chandler’s Fairy Tale Theatre has been staging the participation musical “Cinderella” to the sometimes gentle, sometimes voluble excitement of children, and to the amusement of their parents. This play is back due to popular demand and will be playing July 16, 23, 30--it’s a magical experience, and young children will love it. The old fairy tale, found in almost every country, comes to life with the help of the audience members both

young and old. Children are invited on stage, get to sing along, and every little girl who wants to has a magical dance with Prince Charming. The musical’s official performance time is 11:00 AM; the actual performance began some 15 minutes later due to children still streaming in--latecomers are very welcome. They even get special seating in the back. But the entire play runs a very tight one hour shift, so don’t worry about being stuck in an interminable (but very charming) setting. Once birthdays are celebrated and free tickets distributed to lucky theatre-goers, the theatre darkens and the spotlight settles on Cinderella (played with sweetness by Jane Fuller, a Sierra Madre Playhouse alum) and her three mouse friends (Linda Noh, Helen Frederick, and

ton, will remember dancing with Prince Charming. Two little girls even came back for more! Once he’s danced with every girl at the ball, Prince Charming is faced with the daunting prospect of dancing with the Ugly Stepsisters, who are dressed like layer cakes and superbly simpering. But then Cinderella appears, and it’s love at first sight. The theatre lights black out, and disco balls fill the room with ethereal light as Cinderella and her prince start dancing. The lighting is marvelously done in this scene; the moment is magical for the audience as well. Too soon, midnight strikes; Cinderella runs; the glass slipper is tried throughout the land; and the children in the audience chime in to help the prince finds his true love. The play ends with a kiss,

which prompted loud cries of “Ewww!” but made the grown-ups chuckle. After the performance, the entire cast can be found outside in the bright sunshine, signing autographs and laughing with the children, smiling for pictures, and enjoying themselves just as much as the children did. It is a magical play that truly enjoys sharing the magic with the audience, and inviting them to live Cinderella’s dream with her. “Cinderella” is showing at the Sierra Madre Playhouse on 87 W. Sierra Madre Blvd, Sierra Madre, CA 91024. It runs July 16, 23, and 30 starting 11:00AM. Tickets are $18 Adult, and $12 Children under 12. Reservations can be made by calling (626) 3554318.

-Photo courtesy GLCA

Over the next few months, crews will clear the center and southern

freeway medians, build a 500 foot long temporary retaining wall, and then start

work on the massive foundations for the bridge structure. Intermittent late-night closures of the Eastbound I-210 Freeway will be necessary during the year-long bridge construction. The Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority will issue regular construction notices to update the community on bridge construction activities and schedules. Community members can sign up to receive con-

struction alerts via email or text message on the Authority’s website at www. foothillextension.org. Information is also available over the phone on the 24hour project information hotline - (855) 446-1160. The I-210 Bridge is scheduled to be completed in July 2012, in time for the alignment contractor to start installing the track, utilities, systems and more.

Precautions Urged During Hot Weather Although temperatures are dipping slightly, don’t be fooled! The Pasadena Fire Department and Pasadena Public Health Department remind everyone to take care of themselves, their children and their pets. With temperatures in the 90s, everyone should minimize outdoor activity as a precaution, especially during the hottest parts of the day. Excessive temperatures can cause heat stroke, exhaustion, heat cramps and dehydration. Insufficient water or salt intake may lead to a deficiency in the

The Doozies

production of sweat, which may cause heat exhaustion. Symptoms include dizziness, fatigue, faintness, headaches, pale and clammy skin, rapid and weak pulse, fast and shallow breathing, muscle cramps and intense thirst. Anyone with these symptoms should be removed to a cooler, shaded location and given fluids such as water or sports drinks. Anyone experiencing diminished judgment, disorientation, pale and clammy skin, rapid and weak pulse and/or fast and shallow breathing should

receive immediate medical attention. There are several ways to manage the heat: •Wear light, loose-fitting clothing. •Drink fluids often; don’t wait until you are thirsty. •Avoid unnecessary exposure to the sun. Wear a hat, preferably with a wide brim, when out in the sunlight. •During peak heat hours, stay in an air-conditioned area. If you don’t have access to air conditioning in your home, visit public facilities such as shopping malls, community centers and libraries to stay cool.

Governor Brown Sends Strong Letter to CSU Chairman Over ‘ever-escalating pay packages’ Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. sent a strong letter to Herbert Carter, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the California State University on Tuesday morning: Here’s the letter: “As this Board well knows, California is still struggling to overcome the effects

of the great recession which forced tens of billions of dollars in state budget cuts. The state university system has been particularly hard hit with painful sacrifices on the part of faculty and students alike. As trustees, you have to make tough calls and strive as best you can to

protect our proud system of higher education. It is in this context, and prompted by the salary decision you are about to make today, that I write to express my concern about the ever-escalating pay packages awarded to your top administrators.

On Wednesday, July 6, Pasadena Water and Power brought a new water treatment plant online, reviving a local groundwater source that had not been used since 2002. The Monk Hill Treatment Plant at 2696 Windsor Ave. near the Jet Propulsion Laboratory is designed to treat up to 7,000 gallons of groundwater per minute, removing perchlorate and volatile organic compounds to meet all regulatory standards for safe drinking water. Perchlorate is an oxidizer used in rocket propellants; VOCs were once used as industrial cleaning solvents. These chemicals leeched into the Monk Hill Sub-basin of the Raymond Basin aquifer

subsequent to waste disposal practices at JPL decades ago. The city of Pasadena worked closely with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, owner of JPL, on design of the stateof-the-art treatment plant, site selection, public outreach and environmental and public health review processes. NASA funded construction and operating costs; the city of Pasadena leases and operates the plant. Support for the project was also provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, California Department of Toxic Substances Control, Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board and California Department of Public Health.

The CDPH led the public health review process, which consisted of evaluating the quality of the treated water, a public review, comment period and a public hearing, and issued a permit to serve water from the Monk Hill Treatment Plant on March 17th this year. “On behalf of the city of Pasadena, I want to thank all the agencies that came together to realize this project,” said Pasadena Water and Power General Manager Phyllis Currie. “And I especially want to thank the many citizens who came to neighborhood meetings from the earliest days of this project, submitted comments and questions along the way and participated in the final

public health review process. Your diligence is a testament to the vital importance of water to our community.” “NASA made a commitment to the city to clean up the chemicals in the groundwater from JPL, said NASA Groundwater Cleanup Manager Steve Slaten. “This new treatment plant achieves that result and we are pleased to have lived up to our commitment.” For more information about the Monk Hill Treatment Plant and groundwater cleanup near JPL, visit www. cityofpasadena.net/monkhill or call (626) 744-4409.

BY SUSAN MOTANDER plumbing. A friend of the homeowner, Brad Nunn, driving past the house saw the flames shooting out the attic vent, stopped and ran in. Nunn found the contractor in shock and immediately checked out the upper story. Finding flames there he rushed to the first floor and shaking the contractor into assisting him, removed the artwork and flatscreen T.V. The fire department arrived at that time and im-

mediately began to vent the roof and put out the flames. According to Battalion Chief Scott Haberle, the fire department is investigating the exact cause of the fire and determining the estimate of the dollar amount of damage to the home. The fire which was reported shortly after 2:30p.m. on Friday afternoon damaged the home at 255 South California.

The California Citizens Redistricting Commission decided at their meeting this afternoon, that in order to produce the best district maps possible, it will amend its schedule and not release a second round of draft maps. The Commission will be posting visualizations of proposed districts, and make equivalency files available for organizations and news outlets to provide greater detail to the public on the visualization proposals. The visualizations are

proposed options for districts and are considered and discussed by the Commission at their meetings instructing the line drawers. The final district maps are slated to be released July 28th and adopted by the Commission on August 15th. The Commissioners are soliciting public comment on these visualizations and will be receiving, reading and considering those comments throughout their meetings directing the

line drawers for the final maps. The Commission will release more details early next week on how the public can easily obtain information, submit comment on the visualization proposals and follow each step of the process for drawing the lines. The Commission met with its technical line drawers on Wednesday, July 13th. We will publish the results next week.

Monrovia Couple Celebrates 71 Years of Marriage and Lemonade BY TERRY MILLER Ask anyone who knows Milly Lapson and Herb Stevens, and you’ll immediately know why their marriage is so successful. Not only has the marriage endured countless Presidents but also the usual slings and arrows of living together , having children all while trying to maintain two successful careers. The couple met when they were still going to school. He was attending college and she, still in High School. Stevens worked part time in an ice-cream parlor to pay for his textbooks, and Lapson used to keep her mother company walking to the ice-cream parlor at night to pick up the late edition of

the newspaper. Each time Herb saw Milly and her long dark hair, he fell in love with her and decided that she was the one he’d marry. Lapson had already won several art scholarships and was vey serious about perusing her career in art and was not about to let marriage interfere with those plans. She let Stevens know, in no uncertain terms, that no one would impede her career, not even him. He agreed and they got married. Shortly after their marriage, Stevens served overseas with the United States Naval Intelligence Corps in World War ll as a language

interpreter, and won several medals. The couple moved to California in 1947 after being married in 1940 in New York. Mildred Lapson works in oils primarily and has produced art exhibits and guest art lectures in the late 1950’s. Lapson inspired the first art festival in Monrovia 1964. These events ultimately lead to the formation of the Monrovia Arts Festival Association in 1965. The secret of their long marriage is “keeping a good sense of humor, and as they say, “life is not a bowl of cherries”, and “when life gives you lemons, make lem-

Not a lot of difference in these two images really( except perhas 71 years). Perhaps it was the amount of lemonade the couple has consumed over the years, but we think they look as lovely now as they did the day they got married. Happy Anniversary to Monrovia’s Milly and Herb. -Courtesy Photos

onade”. They say that they’ve made lots of lemonade over the years. They have two married daughters, four grandchildren and five greatgrandchildren. Stevens Nursery in

Monrovia was where Stevens, now retired, was a Landscape Designer and Contractor. Lapson’s work is listed in “Who’s Who of American Art”, her works are included in Permanent Collections in such places as

the Ellis Island Museum, the Pasadena Museum of History, the State Theater of California-Pasadena Playhouse, and many, many other locations throughout the world.

Parents of Arcadia Student Killed in Crosswalk Accident File $5 Million Municipal Claim Continued from page 1 the incident. Du, a Pasadena City College student, currently faces vehicular manslaughter charges, to which he pleaded not guilty last month. Police believe that the car’s dirty windshield is an indication of driver negligence, which, in conjunction with the direction of the setting sun, directly contributed to the accident. If convicted, Du could face a sentence of up to six years in prison. The Zhangs’ claim states that the girls demonstrated correct safety protocol when using the crosswalk, according to the Pasadena StarNews. It additionally states that two previous accidents occurred at the same crosswalk—one in 2004, and one in 2008. The first accident prompted an investigation of the crosswalk’s safety, which led to the eventual installation of a flashing light system designed to signal pedestrian crossing. No further changes to the crosswalk were made after the second accident. The claim’s argument is that the current light system is inherently dangerous, as the angle of the sun renders it dif-

ficult to see at certain times of the day, and the yellow lights could prove potentially confusing for drivers. The claim suggests that a traditional traffic control system would have been a more suitable alternative. Attorney David Casselman, who is representing the Zhangs, said that, “The reality of the situation is that people are being seriously hurt and killed at that crosswalk. The public entity has to make a decision as to where to distribute funds. The idea that it’s not okay to spend money to save lives where there’s a history of people being hurt and killed, I think, is irresponsible.” The $5 million is not a precise demand, but a number put in the claim to place the city on notice for investigation purposes, according to Casselman. As of Tuesday afternoon, the city has not formally responded to the claim. In the months following Alice’s death, the safety of the crosswalk has come under heavy criticism. A group of Arcadia High students founded the For Alice Move-

ment, a student-led movement that seeks to eliminate the crosswalk’s dangers and prevent future accidents. Members of the group have addressed the City Council, spoken to the AUSD Board of Education, and informed students at other schools of the cause. Several Arcadia High students have offered their support of the Zhangs’ claim. “No set amount of money can ever compensate for a person’s life, and I just hope that whatever happens from Alice’s parent’s actions will prevent unnecessary injury or loss of life,” said senior Alwyna Lau, a former friend and cross-country teammate of Alice’s. “Losing Alice has already been hard enough and I hope that no more additional lives will ever be lost from crossing a street, especially under preventable circumstances.” Senior Stephanie Ou, another close friend of Alice’s, noted that Alice followed all traffic regulations at the stoplight, and that expressed concern over the crosswalk’s design. She stat-

ed, “While I am not familiar with many legal proceedings of this type and cannot give and educated opinion on what I believe the amount of compensation should be in this case, I definitely believe the Zhang family should be compensated and extend my unwavering support.” Some Arcadia residents are concerned about the potential ramifications if the case goes to court. Ronald Lee believes that a lawsuit could be a “big cost for the

city—even though [the city] should have insurance for this purpose, attorney’s fees are not covered.” He described his personal feelings about the crosswalk as “very complicated,” and suggested that future accidents might be prevented by changing the blinking yellow lights to red. Another resident, who asked to remain unnamed, stated, “I don’t think [the Zhangs] have a claim. Things happen. Accidents happen.

I don’t know what else the city could have done to prevent this sort of accident…I don’t think the city should be held responsible. There’s got to be some personal responsibility.” The 19-year-old driver, Bowen Du, pleaded not guilty last month to a vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence in the accident is now scheduled for a preliminary hearing on July 27.

Zachary Hunt Zachary began his 8 years of experience in fire service in the U.S. Forest Service, and has worked fighting fires in Grover Beach, Riverside County, and San Diego County. He is a recent paramedic graduate, and drives about two and a half hours from Santa Barbara just to volunteer with the Sierra Madre Fire Department. One of his first calls was “dishsoap in the dishwasher,” as opposed to dishwasher soap, which caused the dishwasher to overflow with soapy bubbles.

He is also a paramedic, and lives 45 minutes from Sierra Madre in Hawthorne. “This is something I want to do for the rest of my life,” said William, “I got to meet a lot of people around the City … they’re really welcoming!”

Service to 44th Assembly District Residents to get Unprecedented Cut

VACCO/Merle West Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning, since 1934 SATISFACTION GUARANTEED!

Continued from page 1 abrupt elimination of Redevelopment Agencies, which are essential tools used by cities in the San Gabriel Valley to create economic development, jobs and housing. My concern, shared by the Los Angeles District Attorney, my local County Supervisor and many in law enforcement, that the misguided prison realignment plan will increase crime on our streets and in our neighborhoods and ultimately cost the State more money. My opposition to the hastily drafted AB 114 School Finance bill, which, along with the Budget, contains triggered cuts to education that may cause the elimination of a full week of school and may wreak havoc on the finances of our local school districts. (AB 114 was not available for proper public review and has since been the subject of negative editorials in the Los Angeles Times and other newspapers throughout California). My concern over the

optimistic revenue projections. I knew that my vote ran counter to the wishes of the Assembly Democratic Leadership. However, I believed then, and continue to believe, that it reflected the needs and wishes of the residents of my District. To have ignored my constituents and legitimate policy priorities in order to curry favor with legislative leaders would have been an abdication of my responsibilities as an elected representative. The consequences for voting my conscience were not long in coming: at the close of business on Friday, I received a letter from Assembly Member Nancy Skinner, Chair of the Rules Committee. Ms. Skinner informed me that my previously-approved budget for office expenses has been slashed for the third and fourth quarters of this year. The letter further stated that “effective October 21, 2011 through November 30, 2011,” my entire Capi-

tol and District staff will be placed on leave without pay. This bizarre and unprecedented action is clearly intended to punish me for my vote and to discourage other Assembly Members from performing their duties in a conscientious manner. I am very concerned that it will have a detrimental effect on the services for the District for which I proudly serve and I have asked Ms. Skinner to reconsider this exercise of power. Ms. Skinner’s letter, and my response, are both attached. I am hopeful that she will re-evaluate her decision to strike at me by punishing the blameless residents of the 44th AD and the hard-working members of my staff. But if this is the price for speaking out and taking independent action, I will reluctantly have to pay it. The people of California will judge which of us is properly honoring our oath of office.

GP016077 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the WILL or estate, or both of NICHOLAS KARPOW AKA NICHOLAS KARPOV AKA NIKOLAJ KARPOV. A PETITION FOR PROBATE has been filed by ROBERT PAUL ASH in the Superior Court of California, County of LOS ANGELES. THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that ROBERT PAUL ASH be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act with limited authority. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: 07/29/11 at 8:30AM in Dept. A located at 300 E. WALNUT ST., PASADENA, CA 91101 IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within four months from the date of first issuance of letters as provided in Probate Code section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hearing date noticed above. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code Section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for Petitioner KATE YOUNG - SBN 223101 432 W. FOOTHILL BLVD.
