Senate Backs Portantino’s Bill AB 144 to Ban “Open Carry” – Bill on Governor's Desk for Signature

Assemblymember Anthony Portantino’s groundbreaking legislation (AB 144) making it illegal to carry an unloaded gun in public was approved late today by the State Senate (vote of 21 to 18), adding to the growing chorus of public officials and law enforcement groups calling for a ban on “open carry” in public. “I am very pleased that my fellow legislators agree this is a sensible gun ban that closes a loophole

BY TERRY MILLER For a decade now, the world has watched as ‘ground zero’ has transformed from massive piles of debris caused by two highjacked jets flown into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. As

each year passed a rather slow progression of rebuilding, redesigning and reflection has taken place at the site where so many people lost their lives. Each year New York has grown, spiritually,

emotionally and the World Trade Center site forever evolved to the point on Sunday where the reflecting pool was opened for the first time for families of the victims who lost their lives in the terrorist

attacks. I was in New York Sept 28, 2001 as my father was undergoing some serious brain cancer treatment (s).

Monrovia Mayor Mary Ann Lutz and City Staff Refute Allegations of Impropriety BY SUSAN MOTANDER At the Monrovia City Council meeting last week, Robert Silverstein, an attorney who represents the owners of a property involved in the proposed development of the Gold Line Construction Authority’s Maintenance and Operations Yard in Monrovia, accused the

Council of violating the Brown Act and the Mayor of conflicts of interest in various actions. The allegation of a violation of the Brown Act, which promotes open actions by government bodies, involved the statement made by Mayor Mary Ann Lutz at the

meeting. Lutz was responding to a letter from a citizen requesting that the council place on the agenda the matter of holding Clarence Shaw’s seat open while he is on active duty in the United States Military. Lutz explained that Shaw’s seat was being held

Some Sage Thoughts Dorothy's Place

BY DOROTHY DENNE As I sit facing the computer to type Dorothy’s Place before my Saturday deadline, 9/11/11 has not arrived just yet. It is but a day away with all the memories and events it will bring with it. I cannot be glib at this moment. Thus, I think I shall share with you some sage thoughts I have accumulated from books, the net and from life. *Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. *A sharp tongue can cut your own throat. *If you want your dreams to come true, you mustn’t oversleep.

*Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important. *The best vitamins for making friends......B1. *The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts. *The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge. *One thing you can give and still keep is your word. *You lie the loudest when you lie to yourself. *If you lack the courage to start, you have already finished. *One thing you can’t recycle is wasted time. *Ideas won’t work unless You do. *Your mind is like a parachute...it functions only when open. *The 10 commandments are not a multiple choice. *The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime. *It is never too late to

become what you might have been. *Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget the ones who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it. *Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we’ve let them fly away. *Sometimes we are so caught up in who’s right and who’s wrong that we forget what’s right and wrong. Sometimes we just don’t realize what real friendship means until it is too late. *Hang on tight...don’t let your balloons fly away.

Don’t Get in the Way of Corporate Frenemies… Especially French Ones (Love Crime) MOVIE REVIEW BY MICHAEL J. GONZALEZ In director Alain Corneau’s new thriller Crime d’amour (Love Crime), two fiercely ambitious French women near the height of their corporate advertising careers play a deadly game of sabotage in a race to the top of the business world. Kristin Scott Thomas and sultry French movie star Ludvine Sagnier play the lead parts in this taut thriller where we know early-on who dunnit but are far more

scintillated by how it was done. Thomas is eerily convincing as the cold and ruthless Christine, the top executive at an advertising firm who is out to destroy the equally menacing, although seemingly more demure, Isabelle (Sagnier). The film is so cleverly constructed that every twist and turn will force you to reconsider all of your assumptions about the opposing themes expressed in the film, that of boss/

subordinate, love/betrayal, and admiration/envy. French actor Patrick Mille also does an excellent job at playing Philippe, a proverbial corporate sycophant who will do anything to further his career, including sleeping with both his counterparts, only to quickly realize that he’s merely prey in this world of female predators.

Are You Up to Date on Your Vaccinations? Senior Citizens are not keeping their vaccinations up to date. Far too many adults become ill, disabled or die each year from diseases that could easily have been prevented by keeping their vaccinations current. Arcadia Senior Services in partnership with

Methodist Hospital have a special guest speaker, Dr. Joel Streng, a specialist in infectious disease. He will present a free health lecture on Tuesday, September 27, 1:30pm at the Arcadia Community Center, 365 Campus Drive. Unfortunately some

adults were never vaccinated as children or the newer vaccines were not available when some adults were young. Immunity can fade over time and we become more susceptible to serious diseases caused by common infections such as flu, pneumonia,

etc. Dr. Streng will speak about what immunizations senior citizens should have and why and how often we should repeat them. Pre-registration is required and can be made by calling Arcadia Senior Services 626.574.5130 before September 21.

Unity Center To Honor Bob Bartlett and Robin Salazar BY SUSAN MOTANDER The Foothill Unity Center will honor former Monrovia Mayor Bob Bartlett and Pasadena restauranteur Robin Salazar will be honored for the dedication to the center and to their communities as a whole. This will be the 13th annual Gold Plate Award Celebration and is the major fund raiser of the year for the center. Bartlett and Salazar are being feted with the center’s highest honor, the Heart in Hand Humanitarian Award. The celebration will be held at Santa Anita Race Track in Arcadia on September 22. The evening will include silent and live auctions, an al fresco trackside dinner, live entertainment and more. For further information or to purchase tickets go to wwwwww.foothillunitycenter.org or contact Gerald at the Center, (626) 358-3486. Bob Bartlett was born and raised in Monrovia and attending Monrovia Schools. He ran for and

was elected to the Monrovia City Council in 1974 because, as he explains it, he saw hi hometown floundering. He along with other members of the Council turned the dying city around especially with the use of the Monrovia Redevelopment Agency. He eventually became the first African American mayor of the city when he was appointed to the office by his fellow council members. He became its first elected mayor in 1988 when the city shifted to a direct election of the mayor. He served another 13 years a mayor. During his years in office Bartlett served as the President of the California League of Cities and the Southern California Association of Governments as well as chairman of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee for the National League of Cities. Among his many accomplishments he had a major role in creating the Foothill Transportation

Zone and the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments. Earlier this year when honored with the 2011 Life Changers Achievement Award, Bartlett made a comment upon his work in Monrovia and the San Gabriel Valley as a whole. He said: “It’s not only redeveloping the buildings and edifices that’s important. You have to change the hearts and minds of people.” In contrast, Robin Salazar, owner of Robin’s in Pasadena, grew up in Milwaukee and got his start in the restaurant business at sixteen, washing dishes at the local IHOP there. It took him only 7 years to more up to buying the place. Being a bright human being, after a winter visit to Southern California (have you any idea what Wisconsin winters are like?) he moved here and bought what is now Robin’s Woodfire BBQ and Grill. In addition to his work

in rebuilding his business, Salazar has become active in working for local low to moderate income people in Northwest Pasadena. In 2007, in partnership with Neighbors Acting Together Helping All (NATHA), he founded The Lemonade Brigade, a youth entrepreneurship program that helps youths in the Pasadena Unified School District learn about starting and running a business. Proceeds of their sales at local events go toward scholarships and college field trips. In 2010, with his team and partner Walt Jackson, Salazar started the United Pasadena Food Bank at the Jackie Robinson Center. This is a privately funded, volunteer-staffed program which works with Pasadena restaurant to donate extra food to the needy. Its Wednesday hot meal program is now serving some 175 people a week and growing.

Arcadia Teacher of the Year Tal Jones 2011-2012 Jones earned his BS in Zoology from Brigham Young University and his Administrative Credential from Cal Poly Pomona. He has taught in Arcadia schools for 27 years with the first six at Foothills Middle School and the last 21 at Arcadia High teaching Biology, Biophysical Science, Anatomy and Physiology, Leadership Dynamics and Specifically Designed Academic Instruction Science. An exceptional teacher by all accounts, Jones’ educational journey to a teaching career took a little longer than some. Married at an early age, Jones and his wife Debbie raised five children while he attended school and worked at different jobs. Through time, Jones delivered newspapers, operated a back hoe as a grave digger, was an orderly in a surgical hospital ward, and owned and operated two Baskin Robbins ice cream stores. When he earned his degree in 1984, Debbie and all five children were there for his graduation. Of his classroom Jones says, “Step inside my classroom and expect the unexpected. This is not to say that careful thought and

preparation have not been dedicated to each lesson, rather it makes reference to the exciting, unanticipated learning experiences that await my students on a daily basis. Step inside and soak up the stimulating sights, scents, and sounds of science that fill the room and the minds of my students.” Years in teaching: 28 years Education: BYU, University of LaVerne and Admin Credential from Cal Poly Pomona Teaches: AHS Biology, Biophysical Science, Anatomy & Physiology, Leadership Dynamics, SDAIE Science - in a beautiful classroom in the new Science Center Previously taught at Foothills for 6 years before coming to AHS Site activities in addition to classroom instruction: Science Department Chair WASC Focus Group Cochair LINK Crew Coordinator (new program at AHS this year) BTSA Mentor Diversity Summit Chairperson Faculty Congress MC for yearly Charity Dance Show Core Teacher Team Repre-

Mayor and City Staff refute Allegations of Inappropriate Actions Continued from page 1 Veterans Code of the State of California. The code says the council “may” appoint an interim seat holder, but does not require it to do so. City Attorney Craig Steele then spoke to the requirements of the law and the actions required of the council. Lutz asked a few questions of the city attorney to clarify the issue. No vote was taken by the council, nor were the other members of the council involved in any sort of discussion of the issue. Major Shaw is currently on active duty and because his duties require him to be in Everett, Washington, he is not able to attend Council meetings, however, in a phone interview Shaw said that he reads his weekly council reports and is aware of what is happening in Monrovia. He also said that he reads this newspaper in its on line edition even before his weekly copy is sent to him by the city staff. According to Scott Ochoa, Monrovia City Manager, he is in regular contact with Shaw and if the need arises and Shaw’s service requirements allow, he can be connected electronically with the rest of the council within the hearing of the public. The same citizen who had sent a letter to the council, sent another to the District Attorney’s Public Integrity Unit requesting an investigation of the alleged violation of the Brown Act. According to the city manager, that unit is diligently investigating the allegation. “I know that they have reviewed the written record and I understand they may have viewed the video tape of the proceeding,” Ochoa said. He said that he expected a decision from the D.A.’s office shortly. In a totally separate matter, Silverstein accused Mayor Mary Ann Lutz of a conflict of interest in voting on matters pertaining to Monrovia Redevelopment Agency (MRA) property saying that the mayor owned property within 1000 feet of the MRA property south of Huntington Drive. It is true that Lutz and her husband own one condominium unit which is approximately 700’ from the MRA property, however, the law says there is only a conflict if the property is within 500’ of the MRA area. There is no conflict of interest here under the law.

“When my husband and I purchased the condo in 2009. I was not yet the mayor of Monrovia and I had not be appointed as a representative to the GLCA’s Joint Powers Agreement Board. I was not the alternate on the GLCA Board,” Lutz said. She further explained, “I knew the law required that I recuse myself from any votes on MRA property if my property were within 500’ of the MRA area. I knew that the single unit we owned was at least 640’ from that area, and probably more.” A check with the Monrovia Planning Division showed the condo is indeed further away. “The property in question is close to 700’ feet away from the MRA area,” said Steve Sizemore, Community Development Director. He called the Mayor’s ownership of the condo with her husband, a “non-issue.” A third issue raised by Silverstein which has nothing to do with the other two, was a possible conflict of interest in the mayor serving as an alternate to the GLCA Board. On August 8, Lutz resigned her position as a result of a petition filed with the State Attorney General requesting the right to sue eight mem-

bers and alternates to the GLCA Board. The request was filed by Chris Sutton, co-council with Silverstein in representing a property owner involved with the GLCA’s authority’s development of its M & O yard. According to Lutz, she resigned because the petition questioned the ability of the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments’ ability to appoint anyone to an alternate position. “It was not because of other allegations in the petition. I resigned because I was not sure the COG had the ability to appoint me as an alternate,” Lutz said. According to Ochoa, the petition filed by Sutton is on hold until action by the governor regarding Assembly Bill 706 which is currently before him for signature having been passed by both the assembly and state senate. AB706 would allow Council members to serve on boards such as the GLCA. The important point is that these are three separate issues according the Lutz. “Mr. Silverstein is a zealous advocate for his client, but he is confusing several issues, “ Lutz said.

In addition to presenting four Grade I stakes races, Santa Anita Park will host its fourth Gourmet Food Truck Festival on Breeders’ Cup Challenge Day, Saturday, Oct. 1. Santa Anita has hosted three highly successful Food Truck Festivals in its infield area this year, most recently on May 14. “Santa Anita was the first to bring the idea of Food Truck Festivals to Southern California racetracks and we look forward

to this event continuing that tradition,” said Santa Anita President George Haines. “We will be offering some of the best racing we’ve seen all year and there’s no doubt this could be the biggest day of our Autumn Meet. “We’ve found that the Food Truck Festivals deliver a terrific demographic for us. The crowds are family-oriented and we feel this is a great opportunity for us to introduce our sport to an en-

tirely new group of people. The vendors consider this an ideal venue and they realize Santa Anita is a perfect place for them to maintain and expand their own fan base,” he added. Approximately 70 vendors are expected on Oct. 1, including prominent food trucks such as The Grilled Cheese Truck, the Lobsta Truck, Ragin Cajun, Shrimp Pimp, White Rabbit, Nom Nom and many more. The Food Truck Festi-

val is free, with paid General Admission of $5 to Santa Anita. All parking lots will open at 10:30 a.m. Admission gates will open at 11 a.m. Festival operating hours will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. First race post time at Santa Anita is 1 p.m. For more information on the Oct. 1 Food Truck Festival, fans are encouraged to visit www.santaanita.com, or to call (626) 574-RACE.

He is playful, although a little shy. He enjoys his kennel and the toys in it. He has been neutered and can go home with you immediately. The regular cat adop-

tion fee is $70 which includes spay/neuter surgery,

a microchip, the first set of vaccinations, and a free

This Sorcerer’s Spectacular

”The Sorcerer's Apprentice” A Fun Choice for Everyone at the Sierra Madre Playhouse BY COURTNEY BLACKBURN

Barry Schwam, the very Sly Fox. Barry is one of the most recognized faces on the Sierra Madre Playhouse stage.

Ever been afraid to go to a children’s participation play? Don’t be. June Chandler’s Fairy Tale Theater production “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” gives even its non-target audience a very good show. And the special effects--in a word, impressive. Every member of the family can enjoy this follow up to The Sierra Madre Playhouse’s hit participation musical, “Cinderella”; from little Susie up through Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa, and back down to little Tommy. Swordfights, damsels in distress, rapid-fire dialogue that recalls “The Princess Bride” and Danny Kaye’s classic “The Court Jester”--there’s something for everyone waiting in the velvet seats of the Sierra Madre Playhouse. Intrigued? Here’s how to go about it. After stepping into the

Sierra Madre Playhouse’s air-conditioned corridor, every patron receives a glowstick--er, magic wand--and a shiny gold coin, light as a feather. A few steps further and they reach the red velvet seats waiting patiently to be filled. The Playhouse houses 104 standard seats, with some extra foldables in the back. The lights in the theatre are dim, but faint gold sparkles are seen on the stage--maddeningly indiscernible in the darkness. A silver cauldron sits proudly at stage left. Fifteen minutes after eleven o’clock the show starts, although it’s official start time is eleven o’clock flat. A young man bursts into the theatre from the back doors, visibly sweating and asking the audience “Am I late? Did I miss the audition for the almighty sorcerer?” This is our hero, the hope-

ful Sorcerer’s Apprentice (Derek Coleman, effortlessly magical) named Merlin the Magician. After some small banter with the audience, he reaches the stage, and starts to practice his magic for the audition. An unfortunate spell misfire gives him rabbit ears, which remain for a goodly part of the show. Our Apprentice isn’t completely inept--one particular trick with a coloring book will definitely cause even adults to scratch their heads in confusion--but he’s nowhere near ready to assume the mantle of the all-mighty Sorcerer of the Universe (Michael Evans, whose beard drops majestically from atop a ten-foot ladder all the way to the floor) and as such, Merlin is given five tasks to prove his worth. The tale is a familiar one, but it succeeds in taking the characters and giving

them a twist. Our damsel-indistress (Lindsay Hopper, whose guiding voice makes a lovely sound) reaches out to Merlin through a crystal ball, and she is clever and helpful, guiding him from start to finish in the tasks. Merlin is also helped by two animal familiars: scene-stealers Harriett Hare (Helen Frederick, with fish-net stockings that steal the scene from everyone) and Sly Fox (Barry Schwam, whose impeccable mannerisms and costume turn him into a real Renard). This unlikely trio, crystal ball in bag, travels all around the world within the theatre doors; up and down aisles, across the back, and back up to the stage, avoiding screaming eagles and receiving help from all the young “magicians” in the audience with those glowing wands. Our Apprentice grows in strength and confidence, in time to reach the test of cleverness, put to him by twin witches--one good, one evil, neither discernable. Itchy Witch (Lynda Rohrbacher, the good witch) and Twitchy Witch (Joyce Sindel, the evil witch) pose the age-old “poison in the glass” riddle. Merlin, Sly Fox, and Dee Dee Damsel, from her crystal ball, wrestle with the answer to the riddle in Court Jester-esque fashion while Harriett Hare watches worriedly from under the table, and not even her ubiquitous carrot can distract her from the wordplay. The audience audibly chuckles as our heroes banter at rapid-fire pace. Once the riddle is solved and poison avoided, Merlin must face his toughest test of all: a seven-foot dragon (Ron Johnston) glowing in the dark and rumbling for a

fight. Merlin and the dragon perform a stunning fight sequence, with the sparks from the “swords” the only thing visible in the blackened theatre during the dramatic battle. The pitch-perfect sound accompaniment of rolling thunder further heightens the dramatic tension. Lest the story become too intense for the little ones, the lights pop back on and Merlin discovers the dragon’s secret weakness: barbeque. With the dragon happily off to a barbeque, Merlin is finally able to find his lady-love Dee Dee Damsel and win the coveted job of “Sorcerer of the Universe”. The previous sorcerer, you see, just wanted to retire to Bermuda, and happily trots down the aisle in a Hawaiian shirt and flip-flops. The Quest is accom-

plished, the maiden is freed, the day is won, and the play finishes with a flourish in the tight running time of one hour. After the show, the cast is available in the front of the theatre for autographs and pictures. Their genuine love and enthusiasm for both the play and their audience is refreshing. “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” is good fun for everyone, and a very refreshing twist on the old story. “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” runs at 11:00 on Saturday, September 17 and 24. Tickets are $18 for adult and $12 for child. They can be purchased online at www.sierramadreplayhouse.org, by phone at (626) 355-4318, or at the box office at 87 W. Sierra Madre Blvd, Sierra Madre, CA 91024.

Merlin the Magician (Derek Coleman) and his assistant Harriett Hare (Helen Frederick) prepare to complete their epic quest. Among the discussion topics: foxes, mutual admiration for rabbit ears, and whether or not Harriett is a “hare” or a “bunny”.

La Salle Cheer, Making a Difference There are few words to describe the hectic weekend experienced by the La Salle cheer team. They started the weekend gearing-up for one of the Lancers most spirited games versus rival Maranatha High School. They participated with nearly 1,000 cheerleaders during the UCLA halftime show at the Rose Bowl. And finally, served dinner to Pasadena firefighters in honor of 9/11. Friday evening the girls cheered their hearts out in support of the Lancer football team. Saturday began with five hours of practice before the big

UCLA halftime show at the Rose Bowl. The girls represented over 20,000 cheerleaders of the United Spirit Association during the halftime show at UCLAs home opener. Over 25 schools were represented and more than 40,000 fans, including La Salle alumni and parents, saw the girls perform. The squad, in their La Salle red and blue uniforms, were even featured on the Rose Bowl’s big screen. The Lancer Cheer squad ended the weekend serving dinner to the Pasadena firefighters of Station 37. For the third year in a row, La Salle Cheer

and Domenico’s Pasadena teamed up to feed the firehouse. This year’s dinner was certainly more emotional than in the past. Commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the firefighters shared stories of their experiences on that day and of the trepidation of not knowing what might come next. The government had issued a warning of an attack on the west coast and these men and women were feverishly preparing to aid all of Los Angeles if any terrorist attack occurred. They recounted memories of seeing the second tower hit and later, the towers collapsing knowing

their “bothers and sisters” were inside. “Although the cheerleaders can read about it in history books, and watch it on TV, there is nothing like hearing the stories direct from the true heroes,” said Meagan Loomis, cheer coach. “What an honor and humbling experience it was to do something so small, but so meaningful that Sunday night,” commented Kelly Ikeda, cheer captain. The La Salle Lancers Cheer Squad will next support Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D) by joining them on their 5k walk on September 24th in Long Beach.

Huntington Medical Foundation Introduces New Endocrinologist Huntington Medical Foundation (HMF) announced today that Jennifer Chang, M.D., an endocrinologist and graduate of the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, will be joining its medical staff Sept. 1. She will be located at the HMF office in Pasadena. A resident of Monterey Park, Dr. Chang recently completed her fellowship in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism at Los Angeles County/ USC Medical Center following an internship and residency in internal medicine at Kaiser Permanente, Los Angeles Medical Center. She is licensed by the American Board of Internal Medicine and is a member of the American Diabetes Association, American Thyroid Association, the American As-

Endocrinologist Jennifer Chang, M.D.

Everyday is an open house:

sociation of Clinical Endocrinologists, the American College of Physicians and the American Medical Association. Endocrinology is the study of the glands and hormones of the body and their related disorders. Although every organ system secretes and responds to hormones (including the brain, lungs, heart, intestine, skin and kidney), endocrinology focuses primarily on those organs whose primary function is hormone secretion. These organs include the pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, ovaries, testes and pancreas. As an endocrinologist, Dr. Chang specializes in treating disorders of the endocrine system, such as diabetes, thyroid disease, osteoporosis and many others. “One of the real benefits that Huntington Medi-

www.huntvh.com

cal Foundation provides its patients is easy and affordable access to physicians across a wide spectrum of specialties,” says Dr. Chang. “I’m excited about the opportunity to work with my colleagues in making sure that all of our patients get the care they need with the courtesy and respect they deserve. I believe my training and research will be a great complement to the health of our community.” Dr. Chang earned both her Bachelor of Science degree and her medical degree from USC. While there she was awarded the American Thyroid Association Travel Grant to attend the 2010 International Thyroid Congress in Paris, France. She also earned the Endocrine Society Medical Student Achievement Award and was named both a USC

Renaissance Scholar and a USC Trustee Scholar. Dr. Chang’s office is located at 55 East California Blvd., Suite 204, in Pasadena. Appointments may be made by calling 626-397-8323. Founded in 1994, Huntington Medical Foundation’s 70 physicians serve area adults and children at eight offices throughout the San Gabriel Valley. In addition to primary care doctors, the medical foundation includes specialists in a variety of areas, all of whom are either board certified or board eligible. The medical foundation also provides the clinical staff for Pasadena Community Urgent Care, filling an important gap between a patient’s primary care doctor and a hospital’s emergency department.

On the ten year anniversary of Sept. 11, thousands of ceremonies to remember, pay homage and commemorate the day that the United States was attacked were convened across the nation. In addition to official local tributes, 40 plus cyclists, based primarily out of Monrovia, honored the day by visiting firefighters in the area simply to say thank you for the incredible sacri-

fices these men and women make on a daily basis. The group visited stations in Duarte, Arcadia, San Gabriel, San Marino, Pasadena, Sierra Madre, and Monrovia. Sporting American flags, and a sign which read “We will never forget”. 343 firefighters lost their lives trying to save others on September 11, 2001. The group is made up

of cyclists who ride primarily out of Stan’s bike shop. “We normally do a Sunday ride but I thought that it would be appropriate and fitting to do a ride to honor the 343 fireman of FDNY.” Said one of the organizers. Other cyclists who don’t normally participate in the usual Sunday run joined in to pay tribute to 9/11 responders.

New York Commemorates September 11 with the World on 10th Anniversary of Attacks Continued from page 1 He was in hospital when the planes hit the towers. While overwhelmed by my Dad’s condition and prognosis I was also compelled to go to the scene of destruction while in NY. What I witnessed a block away that day was unlike anything I had seen in my 30 years photographing disasters. Coincidentally this week’s 10th anniversary of those terrible attacks on September 11, 2001 falls on my mother’s 80th birthday (actually on Sept. 9), which is why I was in New York. My sister had arranged some rather magnificent events commemorating a woman who has devoted her life to people - first as a nurse in Hammersmith Hospital in London; the a devoted wife and mother; then as a very conscientious nursery school teacher; and

of course the inevitable “job” as proud grandmother to 7 grandchildren who of course can do no wrong. Feeling constrained once again to witness New York’s commemoration of this 10th anniversary, I ventured to Manhattan via the Long Island Railroad and then the E train (subway) to the World Trade Center. Before I boarded the train to NYC I attended a service at Hicksville Fire Dept. where two firefighters: Terrence Farrell and George Howard were lost that day responding to the World Trade Center. It was a deeply moving tribute for two men I never met. Later in the day, I discovered my Mom knew not only one of the firefighters but the family happened to live on the same road and were close with my nieces

and nephew. As with firehouses across the United States, Hicksville’s Fire Dept. honored their fallen heroes with dignity and a deep sense of duty to their community. We can never thank our firefighters enough for what they face each day. The police presence was extraordinarily high as there had apparently been “credible” threats to New York or Washington DC. I think that every NYC cop was on duty Sunday, at least it looked like it. Firefighters from all over the United States were in their dress blues were tearful but also celebrating their proud and courageous profession. I witnessed so many people just saying “thank you” to the Firefighters and Police. Proud firefighters paused to take

Mayor Bllomburg speaks on a massive flat screen at Ground Zero with one of the new towers well under construction in the background.

photos with their fans. It was another year of healing some very deep wounds. Protests on Chambers Street reminded passersby that not all Islamic peoples are terrorists and that hate and bigotry is not the answer. It was all peaceful - I witnessed no violence but a few strong reactions to those protesting Military action in the Middle East. In all, the commemoration of September 11 was a powerful testament that New Yorkers are resilient and deeply moved by the world’s attention last Sunday. As each name of those lost 10 years ago was read, a giant screen provided visual testament of the pain that will never go away for the families of those who lost their lives ten years ago.

Make sure you’re in a STEMI Receiving Center, where time-to-treatment outcomes surpass state and national benchmarks. Make sure the emergency department provides life-saving, American Heart Association protocols. Make sure a medical team with specialized training in heart attack care will meet you on arrival. But most important, when your heart is on the line, make sure you’re at Huntington Memorial Hospital.

The Los Angeles Master Chorale, one of the world’s preeminent professional choirs acclaimed for its profound versatility, opens its 48th season with an ethereal, mostly a cappella, musical exploration on Sunday, October 16, 2011, 7 p.m., at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Music Director Grant Gershon conducts five diverse pieces, among them the U.S. premiere of Swedish composer Thomas Jennefelt’s Music for a big church: for

tranquility, a mesmerizing rhythmic wall of sound, and the hauntingly beautiful Lux Aeterna by former LA Master Chorale Composer-in-Residence Morten Lauridsen, which quickly became one of the world’s most popular choral works after its premiere by the Chorale in 1997. Also featured are British composer Tarik O’Regan’s Tal vex tenemos tiempo and the bluegrass triptych Heavenly Home by the Chorale’s own Shawn Kirchner.

The program features 115 singers as well as organist Paul Meier playing Disney Hall’s iconic pipe organ. The concert is part of Daniel Pearl World Music Days, using music to promote tolerance and humanity. A post concert Gala in BP Hall, honoring LAMC Chairman Mark Foster and sponsored by BNY Mellon for the 19th consecutive year, caps the season opener.

Mayor Gary Kovacic was installing official, shown here with (l-r) David Lee, Dr. Edward Wong and Alice Wang. The three were presented with congratulatory certificates by Steve Johnson, field rep for Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, Julianne Sumiko Hines, District Director for Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, Chamber of Commerce and Mayor Kovacic, for their outstanding service to the community. Mayor Kovacic used the theme from “The Wizard of Oz” (the lion, tin man and scarecrow), very clever. First Lady Barbara Kovacic passed out city pens as a symbol of leadership. All council members attended. Congratulations to the A.C.A. on another outstanding year.

in the law and I am hopeful that Governor Brown agrees,” stated Assemblymember Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge). “Open Carry puts law enforcement and families at risk on Main Street, California. It wastes law enforcement time and attention dealing with unnecessary 911 calls about gun-toting men and women in coffee shops, restaurants and malls. Pedestrians, families, and those who open carry should not have to be put into these tense situations.” AB 144 makes it a crime to openly carry an unloaded handgun in any public place or street. Violations are a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $1000. There are a number of exemptions for law enforcement personnel and hunters as well as others carrying unloaded weapons under specified licensed circumstances.

California is one of many states that allow socalled “open carry” which gives gun owners the right to display weapons, though in California those guns must be unloaded. Carrying loaded firearms in public is already against the law in California. The dispute came to a head last year when gun enthusiasts began showing up in coffee shops and public beaches with unloaded guns strapped to their hips. Similar legislation was introduced in 2010 but did not make it to the Governor’s desk because of a miscue at the end of the session. Portantino took up the cause this year and worked with law enforcement to re-introduce the “open carry” ban. AB 144 is supported by several law enforcement groups including PORAC – the Police Officers Research Association of California, the Los Ange-

les Sheriff’s Department, and the California Police Chiefs Association. “Average Californians understand police officers displaying loaded weapons, they understand hunters, and they even understand those folks who are legally licensed to a carry a weapon. What they don’t want is a proliferation of public displays of weapons for no purpose. It’s imperative that the public safety of our families and our neighbors’ families is protected. It only takes a few seconds to load and fire. This bill is a sensible public safety protection that will make such an occurrence less likely in our neighborhoods,” concluded Portantino. AB 144 now goes back to the Assembly for what’s known as “concurrence” – a technicality that allows for approval of changes in language.

It's Never too Late to Become Champions

Recycle Used Oil & Filters!

BY HARRY SNEIDER – SPECIAL TO BEACON MEDIA

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

Look at what the Parkers Did The Parkers are an inspirational story of overcoming adversity as well as the aging process. They came to us after Jeannette Parker had major back surgery. She had been in the hospital for almost two months. She had not exercised in a long time. She performed musicals at the Shakespeare Club as a dancer and singer in her younger years. She is 73 years old, a wonderful lady that has a gift of writing, helping her family and giving of herself as a philanthropist. Her husband Dick Parker had not exercised in quite a while as he said, meaning a number of years. He is a very successful business man who owns a dental products company called DENOVO. He told me he needed a little bit of conditioning work that would help him with his body as well as his brain. We found the Parkers who live in Arcadia a very delightful couple who had some important fitness issues they were willing to work on. We started slowly with basic weight training like

dumbbell curls, dumbbell bench presses, dumbbell upright rows, dumbbell flys and other dumbbell exercises using very light weight and high repetitions. We followed that with a tubing program doing many different types of stretching exercises as well as balancing exercises. Then we went to the TRX and did abdominal strengthening exercises and squats to strengthen their legs. We found them to be quite strong in their upper bodies for 70 plus years. One of the more unique exercises we did with these wonderful Parkers was boxing with Incredible Hulk gloves into a large stability ball. As the months passed they became physically fit. They improved their balance, became stronger in the upper body, their confidence level began to show by taking a major trip to Italy which they had not done in over 10 years. Then they became California State Senior Games Powerlifting Champions in the Bench Press! It was a long journey from a hospital bed for Jeannette and inactivity for Dick.

Exercise for seniors is the fountain of youth that you are looking for. A change of habits starts gradually with a little workout, with a change in what you eat, getting good rest, keeping a positive mental attitude, setting goals, looking to a bright future. God loves you. Take care of yourself. The Best Is Yet To Be! Follow the Parkers example and get fit today! Harry and Sarah Sneider are fitness professionals who have been training people for nearly 50 years. Give them a call and get started today at 626-355-8964 or email harrysneider@earthlink.net.

Alverno Cross Country Competes in 11th Annual Don Bosco Invitational A young Alverno cross-country team debuted at the 11h Annual Don Bosco Tech Cross Country Invitational held at Santa Fe Dam on Saturday September 10, 2011. No seniors are on the team, having graduated six in 2011. This season’s Jaguar team has four juniors, three returning; a sophomore new to the team plus four sophomores returning from the 2010 Horizon League JV Championship squad; and three freshmen with some running experience. Alverno competed in the Small Schools Division fielding four junior runners in the Junior-Senior race and the remaining seven runners in the Soph-Frosh race. The Invitational marks the start of the fall crosscountry season and gives teams the opportunity to test themselves and compare themselves against their Horizon League opponents. The overcast day, with much cooler temperatures than last year’s

scorcher and participating in the Summer Institute’s running and fitness camp, motivated the returning Alverno runners to significantly improve their times over their 20010 performances on the 3-mile course that has a variety of terrain which includes sand, bike trails, asphalt, dirt and grass. This season’s team consists of Juniors Eryn Blakely, Ashley Haylett, Katherine Haysbert and Adrianna Martinez; Sophomores Bella Daniels-Campos, Reagan Dowd, Jessica Lopez, Victoria Pintado and Brett Richey; and Frosh runners are Rachel Achterman, Rose Buobion and Sophia Villalovos. Head Coach Ken Berry and Assistant Coach Alex Fanara train the cross-country team. Alverno’s top finishers at this year’s Don Bosco Tech XC Invitational were juniors Eryn Blakely and Katherine Haysbert. The Small Schools JuniorSenior race fielded 163

runners. Blakely came in 7th place with a time of 19:06, besting her 2010 Invitational time of 21:24. Haysbert, making her team debut, finished in 11th place with a time of 19:28. “This marks the first time that Alverno has had two runners finish under 20 minutes,” said Coach Ken Berry. For their high placed finishes, Blakely and Haysbert earned medals. The next test for the Alverno runners will be at the Bellarmine/Griffith Park (Bell-Jeff) Cross Country Invitational on Saturday, September 24th. Horizon League competition gets under way on Wednesday, September 28th at 4:00 PM at Griffith Park, hosted by Bishop Conaty. Member schools of the Horizon League are Alverno High School, Bishop Conaty-Our Lady of Loretto, Holy Family, Sacred Heart of Jesus and San Gabriel Mission.

The following is a summary report of the major incidents handled by the Department during this period. Sunday, September 4: After seeing a vehicle for sale on Craigslist, a victim came to the 1900 block of Seventh Place to inspect and purchase the advertised vehicle. Once the transaction was completed, the victim drove the newly purchased vehicle home to a neighboring city. While on his way, he noticed some mechanical problems and decided to return the car.
