Embassy Cal Phil Supporters Voice Strong Opposition to Suites Arcadia Arboretum Foundation Decision to Replace Owes Over Cal Phil with Pasadena Pops in 2012 BY TERRY MILLER $93 Million, Foreclosure Imminent BY MICHELLE R. BROWN The Embassy Suites Arcadia and surrounding land may be sold in a trustee sale (No. 10-25709) on Friday, May 27, if the owner does not pay off an estimated $93,885,314.84 owed on the property. The legal notice for the sale, which was started publication in Arcadia Weekly on April 28th, states that if action is not taken to protect the property, the hotel and all of its contents will be sold at public auction. The hotel, which is located on Huntington Drive in Arcadia, is one of 196 Embassy Suites Hotels worldwide. When approached by our reporters, P.R. Director Gail Bustillos of the Embassy Suites stated that she had no comment, and that it was “news to me.” She also asked us not to call back on behalf of the general manager, who refused to answer calls. Embassy Suites Arcadia was built in 1984, and became an Embassy Suites in 2003. They have a total of 190 guest suites, and are owned by Windsor Capital

Chantry Flats Murder Suspect Kevin Pocher, Found Dead Los Angeles County Coroner’s investigators and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department homicide investigators are reporting that the body of a man found yesterday in the Chantry Flats area of Angeles National Forest is that of Kevin Wolfe Pochter. Pochter was a 55year old resident of Huntington Beach. Sheriff’s homicide investigators had initially alerted the public that Pochter was a suspect in the shooting death of his long time friend, 53-year old Dean Albert of Arcadia, in Chantry Flats on April 28, 2011. Police said Pochter was considered armed and dangerous and advised the public to call 911 if seen. The massive search for Pochter stretched over 62-miles of rugged terrain and involved patrol deputies from several sheriff’s stations, mounted enforcement detail deputies, K-9’s, sheriff’s reserve deputies on Search and Rescue Teams, U.S. Forest Service rangers, and the Arcadia, Sierra Madre, and Monrovia Police Departments. Of particular assistance was the Sierra Madre Search & Rescue team, which included a

Christmas Cards, Easter Eggs, and July 4th BY DOROTHY DENNE This writing comes as the culmination of a rather bittersweet morning. I’ve been doing a project I usually do in January. I’ve been rereading my Christmas notes and letters. I vaguely remember when I used to think that January and February were slow, catch-up months. Things quieted after the holiday rush and I found myself with time on my hands. I enjoyed that almost as much as the hustle and bustle of November and December. Early January, the decorations down and the house sparkly clean, I’d sit down with my basket of cards. I always follow the same routine. I sort first. Those with only names in one pile, those with generic letters in another pile and those with personal notes in yet another. Those from banks, insurance companies, and car agencies, along with the name-only ones are the first to be tossed, except those among them so beautiful they must be saved to become part of the card wreath which will hang on the door the next year. Then come the generic letters folded neatly in-

Dorothy's Place side the cards. Occasionally there is some sad news but usually it is reports of accomplishments, generally of the kids or grandkids. Then come the notes handwritten on the cards themselves. These usually start out to be brief and wind up running out of space. Sometimes the writers turn the card over to write on the back where the finish is slick and the pen won’t write. Sometimes the writer gives up and tears off a little slip of paper to finish that final line or two. It often slides out in the basket. I find it stuck in someone else’s card and exclaim, “there it is.” Every year I threaten to drop from my list those who only sign a name but I’m always happy to know they are still alive and that they remember me. Generic letters are informational. It is nice to hear about graduations, new jobs, weddings, babies and trips and to judge how my life compares to others. If they are really telling the truth, I don’t always come out so well but I just read between the lines and figure they too stub their toes and shut their fingers in doors. My favorite truth this year was the couple

who described their teen son as a kid whose bedroom is a mess but he has a kind heart and very short hair. The very special ones are the handwritten notes, even if they are hard to read and sometimes ruin the card ‘cause they pressed too hard and Baby Jesus has letters indented on his forehead. They are the ones I usually try to respond to by at least St Patrick’s Day. This year that is a hopeless target. I don’t know what happened exactly. The few decorations that made it up did get put away. But, January just slipped away and February followed. No notes by St Patrick’s Day. I didn’t get my basket cleared of Christmas cards in time to fill it with April’s Easter eggs. This week I’m laid up with a pinched sciatic nerve. There is an upside to everything. This morning I sorted my cards and read my notes. If I hadn’t been smacked down with pain, I might not have gotten to that until next Christmas. Now there is hope. How does July 4 sound for getting a handwritten note from a friend?

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, Monrovia High’s dress code takes sides. It focuses on length of shorts, and overlooks other issues of modesty such as short skirts and low necklines. Is this rule really enforced? Plenty of students violate this rule, or wear inappropriate clothes that are not covered by the rule. Enforcement of this rule seems to be based on who you know; whoever patrols the school does not hold certain students accountable for their clothing choices. Could it depend on the personal preference of this person? Are certain students exempt? The punishment for a dress code violation is Satur-

day detention, also given to those with “excessive tardies, truancies, defiance, conflicts and cheating.” Education should take first priority, but excellent students who make one dress code violation are, at their first offense, thrown in among truants, cheaters, and repeat offenders; those who do not take education seriously. I really thought nothing of it when I signed the school’s policy this past fall. My daughter was an entering freshman at MHS and we had always taught her to dress appropriately, something every parent should discuss with his or her child. To find that she had received

a Saturday detention for short shorts was a shock; she is an excellent pre-AP student holding down a job, she has no previous infractions, and this punishment does not fit the crime. Since when are short shorts equal to cheating? Enforce the dress code, make it equal, and keep punishments in perspective. Efforts should be spent catching cheaters and drug dealers, not chasing down students wearing shorts in hot weather. Sincerely, Melissa Weber Send your letters to

The City of Sierra Madre and the General Plan Update Steering Committee (GPSC) is seeking input from the public at a Town Hall Forum to be held at the Sierra Madre Fire Station from 1 pm to 4 pm on Saturday, May 7. The Fire Station is located at 242 W. Sierra Madre Blvd., right next to Memorial Park, which will be the site of the annual Friends of the Library Art Fair that day (and all weekend). Make a day of it, start with the Firefighter’s Pancake Breakfast at the Station in the morning, visit the Art Fair, and return in the afternoon to the Fire Station for the Forum! This forum is a community wide brain storming session to help determine the vision to carry Sierra Madre into the next 20-30 years. The focus of this forum is Families, Youth, Businesses, Servic-

es, and Institutions. This is the second in a series of forums in which the public is being asked to give the GPSC guidance as they work to update the City’s General Plan. Every city and county in California is required to have a General Plan. A General Plan can and should be used to provide a long-term perspective that provides a basis for decision-making by City Council and appointed Commissions. It informs community members, developers, and City staff of the ground rules that guide development within the community. General Plans are updated about every twenty years and are regulated by the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research. Sierra Madre adopted its first General Plan in 1996. One does not need to be a resident of Sierra Madre to participate in

the forum, people who work, shop, or are otherwise involved are invited to provide input as well. Kids will enjoy the onsite “bouncy house” and free popcorn and cotton candy. In addition to the forum, the GPSC is asking the public to visit the City’s website to fill out an online survey of Sierra Madre stakeholders which can be found at www. cityofsierramadre.com just click on “General Plan” on the homepage. For more information regarding the Town Hall Forum, please contact Mr. De Alcorn, Secretary of Service and Volunteering at 626-3554793, or Mr. Colin Braudrick at Braudrick@mac. com. Information is also available on the City’s website or you can send an email to GeneralPlan@ cityofsidrramadre.com.

Inspector Reopens Cold Case in “Cat’s Cradle” at Sierra Madre Playhouse BY FRAN SYVERSON

With the Royal Wedding still fresh in our minds, it seems most timely to watch preparations for another British wedding in “Cat’s Cradle,” now playing at the Sierra Madre Playhouse. But this wedding is fraught with intrigue, mystery and a most unwelcome guest. Paradoxically, mystery itself is what brings Inspector Jack Frost to the English village of Waverton Magna. Twelve years prior, he was unable to solve the kidnapping of a baby boy. Now, at the brink of his retirement, he returns with fresh leads on this cold case, and a feverish desire to redeem his reputation. But he’s totally unprepared for the icy reception he gets. He had hoped to find new clues as he talks with the townsfolk, but no one will talk. Except for elderly Miss Merton. She talks sometimes, and then realizes she shouldn’t have. Stephanie Dunnam gives

The Doozies

a strong depiction of Miss Merton’s befuddlement and her naiveté as she blurts out tidbits, then runs for cover. David Calhoun designed the set and lighting, creating the ambience of a small-town inn. The pigeon-holed shelf for mail and keys behind the desk, a black dial phone, an oldfashioned bell to announce newcomers, a local map on the wall—all convey a low-key hominess. Sam and his wife Peggy as the innkeepers are at odds about how to handle the nosy intruder. Sam (James B. Harnagel) fiercely refuses to rent a room to Frost. Amy Moorman conveys Peggy’s conflicting emotions about the kidnapping and also about Frost, with whom she’d had a brief romantic dalliance when he’d first investigated the kidnapping. Women central to both the wedding and the long-ago tragedy are the baby’s mother and older sister. Melanie Rockwell’s manner and garb convey an aloof, controlled Pamela who is dismayed that her daughter’s wedding day is being tarnished by the Inspector’s arrival. April Morrow is the essence of bridal femininity as Sarah, but becomes ever more distraught as inquiries proceed. Robert Pescovitz aptly keeps the action focused himself as the feisty, harddrinking Inspector who doggedly tries to pierce the

conspiracy of silence cloaking the town’s secrets. He finds an unexpected ally in Bob (Stephen Weston), publisher of the local newspaper. Since his paper seems never to have any real news, he smells a story coming with the reopened investigation. He hangs around the inn, where he’s almost as unwelcome as Frost. That’s because he’d once hoped to be the man claiming Sarah’s hand. Instead, she’s marrying the wealthy nephew of Sir Charles Cresswell. Rees Pugh puts both pompousness and Brit reserve into his characterization of Cresswell. Despite all the intrigue, “Cat’s Cradle” brings laughs a-plenty to lighten the tension, along with some entangled love affairs to decipher. So now the scene is set, and we, along with the Inspector, try to divine who the culprit might have been. As the mystery finally unravels, we may find ourselves as surprised as he is. But wait!—hold your breath until the final ironic closure on this long-secreted cold case! “Cat’s Cradle” by Leslie Sands is directed at the Sierra Madre Playhouse by Bill Mesnik and produced by Barbara Schofield and Estelle Campbell. Angela Sonner is stage manager and also sound operator. Assistant stage manager and light operator is Mike Dessin. Deborah Ross-Sullivan is

the dialect coach. From the Inspector’s hat to Peggy’s apron to Cresswell’s formal attire, costuming again reflects the deft touches we’ve come to expect from Lois Tedrow. Stephen Weston is sound designer. Poster art is by Brandon Bernard and Kate Vandevender. Anne Marie Atwan manages the properties. Along with Ward Calaway, the construction crew includes Calhoun, Sonner and Westron. Geoffrey Wade did the production photography, and Philip Sokoloff the publicity. “Cat’s Cradle” will continue at the Sierra Madre Playhouse weekends through June 4. 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. Make it a special occasion with preor post-theater dining at local restaurants on Baldwin Avenue and Sierra Madre Boulevard.

Cal Phil Supporters Voice Strong Opposition Continued from page 1 on Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation letterhead. Apparently it was a“mistake” according to PIO Imee Perius that the Press Release was sent out of County Parks and Recreation stationary. The Los Angeles County Arboretum foundation decided that expanded summer programs were necessary to attract more revenue. Ironically, according to sources, the Pasadena Symphony has been plagued with financial woes for a couple of years and yet Cal Philharmonic is in good financial shape with all bills paid and up to date.

when the recession hit Cal Phil hard, the board of directors for Cal Phil managed to pay all bills up to date and is financially sound. Vener was deeply saddened and surprised by the Arboretum’s decision. This summer’s Festival on the Green series, featuring five concerts from June 25 through Aug. 20 is still on, however after this summer, Cal Phil will most probably have to find a different venue. The Cal Phil board of directors said the Arboretum’s announcement came as a shock, especially as it was released to the media without the Board’s prior knowledge.

At the press conference, Vener said they still have not received anything in writing from the Los Angeles County Arboretum Foundation. “We take our commitment to the citizens of Los Angeles County, especially our home community of Arcadia, as well as our musicians and long standing loyal patrons, extremely seriously.” Vener said. About 50 people with signs saying things like “Victor is My Hero” protested the Foundation’s “hasty decision” at entrance of the Arboretum Saturday morning just before a 10 a.m. press conference held at California Philharmonic’s offices. The Arboretum announced that it has entered into negotiations with the Pasadena Symphony Association and Pops to establish a contract to present summer concerts beginning in 2012. But Andre Vener, board member and former CEO of CalPhil, along with Robert W. Miller, founding chairman, said the Arboretum Foundation’s decision made no sense after the RFP was submitted and there was no equal opportunity for Cal Phil to negotiate. The Arcadia weekly spoke with Arboretum CEO Richard Shulhof on Wednesday who said that the process to seek new revenue for the Los Angeles County Arboretum started last fall. “The RFP’s (Request For Proposals) went out to several organizations on January 29. The completed responses were due by February 25. The only two who responded were Pasadena Pops and Cal Phil.” We were looking for the “Best available Partner and a new audience.” Shulhoff said and added that this

MOPHG Mother Day Tour - A Great Way to Celebrate Mother’s Day BY SUSAN MOTANDER The Monrovia Historic Preservation Group’s Annual Home Tour is a wonderful gift for Mother’s Day and a great family outing. The tour will be held this Sunday, Mother’s Day. May 8 from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This year all the homes are from the Victorian era and were built between 1884 and 1893. Part of the focus is on the 125th anniversary of the founding of the city of Monrovia. When the town was incorporated in 1887, there were only 164 residences and a population of 2,000 people. While not all of those homes remain today, there are still some magnificent examples of Victorian buildings that have survived, and MOHPG is showcasing five of them on this year’s tour. In addition, the ‘Leven Oaks Hotel and the

Monrovia Historical Museum will be on the tour. The “Leven Oaks is celebrating is opening this year having its opening Day on November 11, 1911. Even if you have seen the museum before, it is time to revisit as there are new and revamped exhibits. Vendors will be located at the Burr House, with a window glazing demo set for 1:00 p.m. A sewing demonstration will be held at the Museum, and visitors will be given a chance to make an apron on a vintage sewing machine. A light lunch will be available for purchase at the Leven Oaks Hotel. Trolleys transporting visitors from house to house will provide an alternative to driving. Tickets can be purchased prior to Mother’s Day at the following locations: Paint “n” Play2,

Missing Person: Alfonso Dela Arroya

Former Temple City Mayor Convicted of Bribery and Perjury Continued from page 1 Alex Ricciardulli will pass sentence on June 2, according to Deputy District Attorney Sean Hassett. In a telephone interview Wilson told the Temple City Tribune that she feels like she’s “living in another world – it’s scary.” Maintaining her innocence throughout the ordeal, Wilson said she was not the ‘ringleader’ as some in the media have described her. The Superior Court jury deliberated for less than an hour and found Wilson guilty of three felony counts receiving a bribe

and three counts of perjury under oath. Wang’s $75 million Piazza mall project on Las Tunas Drive was the driving force behind the largest corruption cases in Temple City’s history. One of the perjury charges involves Wilson’s testimony before the grand jury in December 2008, while the other two involve forms filed with the state’s Fair Political Practices Commission in 2007 and 2008. Wilson was indicted along with former Temple City mayor, Judy Wong,

and Scott Carwile, who had served as Wilson’s campaign treasurer and unsuccessfully ran for the City Council. Wong is serving a 16-month state prison sentence after her conviction in December. Carwile pleaded guilty to one felony count of perjury for failing to report a $3,000 cash contribution to his campaign from Wang. He was sentenced to three years’ probation and no jail time if he testified truthfully against Wilson.

Deputy Sheriff David William March of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department died Monday, April 29, 2002. March had been with the dept. 7 years and was 33 years old Deputy David March was shot and killed after stopping a vehicle in Irwindale, California, at approximately 10:40 am.

The suspect had stated to friends that he wanted to kill a police officer during a traffic stop. The suspect intentionally got stopped and waited for Deputy March to get in front of his patrol car so he could open fire, as Deputy March would have no place to take cover. Deputy March was shot several times in the head and chest. The suspect, who was identified shortly after the shooting, fled to Mexico where he remained for 4 years. On February 23, 2006, the suspect was ar-

rested in Mexico by US Marshals and Mexican federal agents following a joint investigation. He was extradited back to California and on March 2nd, 2007, he pleads guilty to seconddegree murder and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Deputy March had served with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for 7 years. He is survived by his wife and stepdaughter.

large number of dedicated community volunteers. A member of the public saw the victim’s vehicle on Saturday near Mount Wilson and alerted deputies. He had read about the search for the car and the armed and dangerous suspect in a local newspaper. On Monday morning, yet another member of the public, who was hiking in the Chantry Flats area, saw a man who he thought was sleeping and informed authorities. Sheriff’s Mounted Enforcement Detail deputies went to the described area and located Pochter, who was deceased from an apparent, self-inflicted gunshot wound. A handgun was found near the body. The second member of the public had read about the wanted suspect in a local newspaper. “The two members of the public are directly responsible for the Sheriff’s Department

locating the victim’s car and the suspect when we did,” said Captain Mike Parker, Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau. “They handled it exactly as asked, and helped to ensure the safety of everyone, without unnecessarily endangering themselves. We extend our thanks to both of them. Futhermore, they received this important information through the news media, whom the Sheriff’s Department works closely with in order to share information to help keep the public informed. We appreciate this partnership in the interest of public safety. This case certainly showed how important it is.” “We want hikers, area workers and the public to know that no other suspects are being sought in this homicide. The case is closed,” said Sheriff’s Homicide Detective Ray Lugo.

Monrovia Chief of Police, Roger Johnson, has retired as of May1, last Sunday. The city Council has appointed Captain Jim

Hunt as the Interim Chief of Police while a new chief is being selected. Hunt has indicated that he has applied for the promotion. The

above photo has no year attached but one can assume it was some time prior to Johnson’s rise to Chief of Police in Monrovia.

Portantino’s “Open Carry” Gun Ban Heads to Assembly Floor Assemblymember Anthony Portantino’s bill to ban the “open carry” of unloaded handguns was overwhelmingly approved today in Assembly Appropriations and now moves on to a hearing by the full Assembly later this spring. 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. Law enforcement personnel are exempt as are hunters and others carrying unloaded weapons under specified licensed circumstances. “I believe that reasonable Californians agree there is a time and place

for firearms; but public streets and beaches are not the place,” said Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge). “A group of gun-wearing opponents recently demonstrated in the streets of Pasadena causing major headaches for law enforcement and scaring the families dining on Colorado Boulevard. A family should be able to walk down a busy street or get a cup of coffee at the local coffee shop without worrying about gunfire.” AB 144 is supported by the California Police Chiefs Association and PORAC representing rank-and-file police. Law enforcement requested the ban after similar legislation was defeated at the end of

the 2010 session. The Los Angeles city council recently voted to back AB 144 and is considering a similar law banning open carry in Los Angeles. “This is a sensible, public safety bill which will help to reduce the threat to the public and to law enforcement,” concluded Portantino. “Open Carry wastes law enforcement time and resources when they could be out catching bad guys. Instead, they are tied up dealing with frantic calls from the public about gun-toting men and women in the coffee shop. As law enforcement officials tell me, it’s not safe and someone is going to get hurt.”

Pasadena City Council Reorganization During Monday’s regular meeting of the Pasadena City Council, Councilman Steve Haderlein stepped down after 12 years serving District 4; Gene Masuda was sworn

is as the new councilman representing District 4; Mayor Bill Bogaard, District 1 Councilwoman Jacque Robinson, District 2 Councilwoman Margaret McAustin and District 6

Councilman Steve Madison were each sworn in for another four-year term; and Margaret McAustin was elected vice mayor by her council colleagues for a one-year term.

Gardens of Earthly Delight - Showcase House Exterior BY SUSAN MOTANDER Pasadena Showcase House of Design is many things. But perhaps the best thing is that there are 10 extraordinary gardens this year. And here is the best part: visiting them as well as the shops is free. Just follow the signs at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, park and take the shuttle to the house itself in La Canada-Flintridge. Everyone will have a favorite gardens, but I have three, at least: the Wanderland Tea Garden, the Cottage Garden’s Kitchen and the Flight of the Monarchs are exceptional. After the English formality of the entry garden and the traditional English knot garden behind the main house, the whimsy of the Wanderland Tea Garden (Form LA) is a delight. Playing off the idea of Alice in Wonderland, this garden has a wandering path down to the pool passing such features as a brunch area with a table and chairs made of recycled materials including seats created from repurposed shutters. The best part of the garden, may be the huge mushrooms fabricated out of scotch moss (all they need are giant caterpillars with hookahs).

This path winds down to the pool; I must admit I miss the putting greens for which the designers at Pacific Outdoor Living have become known. They did keep up the concept of repurposing materials. Here, they took bricks from a wall which was falling apart elsewhere on the estate and created planters which match the existing wall around the pool, but they have completely refurbished the pool. They even put in a waterfall which appears to be refilling the pool itself since there is also a notch carved out of one corner of the pool. The garden tour then meanders, literally, Across the Stream (Melodie Garden Center and Mystic Water Gardens). There is a second waterfall here as well as a pond. On the other side is a Guest Cottage (Saxony Design Build) which was the old stables for the home. In front of the Cottage (an amazing understatement as it has two bedrooms, two baths, two fireplaces and a kitchen) is an English garden with California touches. The Cottage Yard (Lauterbach, Inc.) has a profusion of flowers but the small touches make the garden. The copper rain chain

has been transformed into a series of mini planters. The old horse trough has been converted into a fountain feature. Behind the cottage is another of my personal favorite spaces: the outdoor Cottage Garden’s Kitchen. Like the kitchen in the main house, it was designed by Jan Ledgard of Yorkshire Kitchens, Inc. Here Jan and her assistant Hope Burman have added little touches like the planters crafted from old palm fronds and the smoking, bubbling fountain. Attached is an indoor/outdoor game room with a mural depicting (what else) the dells of Yorkshire; the mural even brings in the pine tree from just outside the room. To the north of the Cottage is a vegetable garden aptly named Mr. McGregor’s Garden. It is only partly a tribute to Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit’s nemesis. Alastair Boase is a Scot and the designer of this garden which he thinks of as a much a tribute to the other famous McGregor, the Scottish hero, Rob Roy McGregor. It is Alastair and Bottom of the

The Doo Dah Parade 2011

Monrovia's 125th and Cinco de Mayo Continued from page 1

Double the Fun, Double the Pleasure and Double the Parade Watchers BY TERRY MILLER

Disco never dies at the Doo Dah Parade.

The young star of the Doo Dah parade this year was undoubtedly 17 yearold Rosalind Schoen from Sierra Madre as this year’s delightfully zany Doo Dah Queen, Red Rosie aka Wonder Woman. Sporting a cool red polkadot summer frock, she put on her infectious and cheeky smile and waved to her adoring public aboard the bed of a vintage pickup truck, red of course to match her lipstick! This year’s Pasadena Doo Dah Parade again outdid and reinvented itself with some new entries from Sierra Madre this year which, of course, included Red Rosie, 2011 Doo Dah Queen, and Liza Webb, Thrill the World (Pasadena Zombies) as well as Laurel Allyn Wood, The Iceland Queen. Not only were there

new entries but lots of new parade watchers this year. In fact, with Patty Hurley at Lightbringer Project does an outstand job each year with publicity for the world’s most eclectic parade but this year she and Tom Coston threw out all the stops. Three cheers for Lightbringer! People often ask what the Doo Dah Parade is about. Well, trying to describe it is really like trying to understand what Seinfeld was all about. It is about nothing and yet everything really. It is life at silliest and most real. Fleeting fun and frivolous. Even those folks who are usually at the end of the Rose Parade decided to get in on the act this year with tall signs alerting us of our sins and asking us all to repent, which apparently many did at various

Prudential

www.prudentialcaliforniaproperties.com

Speakeasies in and around East Pasadena. This year’s Grand Marshal Ron Stivers, of Poo Bah Records zoomed along in a vintage open top vehicle of some sort, and many first-time entries including the League of Steam, Conehead Rocket Sled, Hippie Cream, The Iceland Queen, Rancho Talavera, combined bands of the 35th Dragoon Guards, Mile High Bed, Cheesus Chrust Pizza Company, 2011 Doo Dah Queen Red Rosie, Flying Baby High Dive, and the Ladies Auxiliary for Cultural Enrichment, et.al contributed to a truly crazy fun couple of hours Saturday morning. Paying a playful, albeit a dash ‘disrespectful homage’, to the more conventional Rose Parade, the 34th Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade began as a grassroots event in 1978 to gain national attention for its eccentric and, often, irreverent satire. The parade which has spawned numerous off-beat replicates across the country was named by Readers Digest as “America’s Best Parade,” and was recently featured in the book 50 Places You Must Visit Before You Die! This year Pasadeana Chief of Police, Phillip Sanchez made a personal appearance with his wife and Lt. Riddle and shook

California Realty

hands with parade watchers. Sanchez seemed to be a big hit with the children on the parade route, many of whom wanted to shake the Chief’s hand. If memory serves me correctly, I think this was a Doo Dah first. After the parade, the “Official Doo Dah AfterParty” was held at American Legion post 280 .Legendary Doo Dah House Band, Snotty Scotty and the Hankies, and Horses on Astroturf, and assorted Doo Dah Glitterati, attended and continued the party well into Saturday evening.

Samantha Guttierez, 7, enjoys the Cinco de Mayo celebrations -Photo by Terry Miller

there were about 2,000 people crammed onto Colorado to enjoy the vendors, food, music and the rich culture of Mexico. The family friendly event highlighted the best in Latino music with The Mariachi Divas, Roots Rock Recording Artists, The Delgado Brothers, The Banda Brothers, and Tex-Mex band Los Fabulocos featuring Kid Ramos. The spring heat didn’t deter thousands to share in the fun and festivities a few days prior to the actual Cinco de Mayo. Performances by folklorico dancers, youth poetry winners, and Junior Mariachis and Oaxacan folk dancers accented the air of peace and tranquility. One of the event organizers, Ralp Walker, said “When people get together peacefully like they did on Sunday, great things can happen.” He added that he truly “was caught up in

PASADENA SIERRA MADRE MONROVIA

the moment of this historic day.” Finally Walker said he hoped the good times “keep rolling on.” Rudy Castellon, owner of Rudy’s Mexican Restaurant in Old Town Monrovia, was the mastermind and President behind the event and obviously he was delighted with Sunday’s turnout. Jimmy O’Balles was the Vice President of the event and Ralph Walker advisor and emcee. For many, one of the highlights of the afternoon was the East L A Band, Los Fabulocos who infuse an eclectic mix of Tex/Mex and Blues. Guitarist David “Kid” Ramos who is one of the most respected players in Los Angeles didn’t disappoint his fans by playing the really cool 12 string Bajo Sexto which is made with the same reverence for heritage as the traditional Mexican music it is used in. Primarily used to play bass and chordal accompaniment in a conjunto group, this guitar’s lowered tuning gives it a very rich and resonant sound. The Lucida Bajo Sexto is carefully crafted from an all spruce top for superb resonance and brilliant sustain. The back and sides are built strong with mahogany. This guitar also features a decorative rosette and authentic Bajo Sexto strings. Ralph Walker pointed out to Monrovia Weekly that at the very moment when Nile Zamora was singing the National Anthem Sunday, American Special Forces were in the process of killing Osama Bin Laden. “Damn, you can’t beat that!” said Walker.

Death of Teen Spurs Crosswalk Debate

Strong Opposition to Arboretum Foundation Decision Continued from page 6

Continued from page 1 to City Engineer Philip A. Wray, the group is committed to bringing about this change. “All pales in comparison to what we lost, who we lost that day.” Utthara Rameshbabu said. Rameshbabu was joined by Lixing Chang, Albert Hu, and Shannon Cao, all students of Arcadia High School where Alice was a student. The students began by expressing concerns and their own experiences of the crosswalk, which is located at the 600 block of West Duarte Road. They presented council members with photos and stories of how they too had difficulty crossing that in-

tersection. Their suggestions for improvement included adding a red light to the intersection, which currently only has a flashing yellow light system; an auditory alert saying “walk sign is on;” and moving the entire crosswalk to Lovell Avenue. Arcadia Mayor Gary Kovacic responded to the group, offered to meet with them, and suggested that a memorial be built for Alice. City Manager Don Penman also pointed out that the accident is part of an ongoing investigation, and no change to the crosswalk can be made until the official police report is complete.

Alice and a friend were crossing West Duarte Road when they were both hit by a car driven by a 20 year old Arcadian man. Alice was killed almost instantly, and the friend was transported to Huntington Memorial Hospital as a result of serious injuries. Sunlight and other conditions may have played a role in the collision, and so far no arrests have been made. ForAlice members have drawn up a petition, which can be found on their Facebook page, or their forum, http://foralice. forumsmotions.com. At this time no date has been set for a public hearing.

was a “business decision for a good reason.” When pressed for details on that decision, Shulhof cited that some information submitted in one RFP contained a confidentially agreement. Schulhof categorically denied Cal Phil’s allegations that negations had already begun with Pasadena Pops prior to the RFP. “That’s not correct.” Schulhof said.

years with sold out concert after concert. During the press conference Saturday Andre Vener said 300,000 people have attended Cal Phil concerts in the 14-year pan since Vener and CalPhil created the summer concerts in Arcadia. The estimates are that approximately 40% of the audience is from Arcadia. Ironically CalPhil recently moved its headquarters earlier this year from San Marino to an office at Westfield Santa Anita‘s Mall in a “continuing commitment to the city and people of Arcadia” Vener said. Westfield had been a long time supporter of Cal Phil. Vener said legal action has been ruled out. Andre Vener said CalPhil is and always has been a think ahead kind of organization and are looking into alternative venues. Without going into any details, Vener said that there are options but this news had hit them hard. Pasadena Pops currently uses the Rose Bowl, free of any fees, which is a much larger venue and according to sources Pasadena Pops had trouble filling that venue. The California Philharmonic presents classical concerts in friendly environments. Concert attendees can enjoy evening of classical music under the stars while sitting on a blanket or seated at tables at the Arboretum. They can bring a picnic or purchase dinner there from vendors. The atmosphere has always been casual Some of the Cal Phil’s rock-friendly and familyfriendly programming has included a suite based on the works of rock band Queen which had the entire audi-

Cal Phil Supporters Voice Strong Opposition to Arboretum Foundation Decision to Replace Cal Phil Continued from page 13 ence singing along to “We Are the Champions.” Another selection was “The Little Mermaid Suite.” Summer 2011, the Cal Phil has a concert called Beethoven & The Beatles with the Fab 4. They include many Broadway hits in their programming. Principal Clainetist Michael Arnold, represented the musicians’ side of the issue at the press conference and was deeply saddened with the news. Arnold has been with CalPhil since the beginning in 1996 and said he was concerned that many musicians could be put out of work as a result of the Arboretum Foundation’s choice. Musicians Local 47 held a meeting Tuesday May 4 that drew more than 75% of Cal Phil musicians and members of the Pasadena Symphony “Professional Musicians, Local 47 announced its support of California Philharmonic musicians today after a critical meeting with the orchestra musicians and the Cal Phil Orchestra Committee, who turned out to the union’s weekly board meet-

ing in unprecedented numbers to address the recent decision to displace them from their longtime venue of the L.A. County Arboretum” “We have some concerns about the entire process that was used by the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Gardens to make the decision not to continue the California Philhar-

monic performances at the L.A. County Arboretum,” said Local 47 Vice President John Acosta. “We are working with all diligence to seek information which will help us determine how this process unfolded. Once completed, the findings will be made available to the membership and public at large upon request.”

Cal Phil Board Sends Letter to County Board of Supervisors Seeking Answers The Board of Directors at California Philharmonic has sent the following letter in response to the decision of the Arboretum Foundation to replace Cal Phil with Pasadena Pops in 2012. “Dear Supervisors Antonovich, Knabe, Molina, Ridley-Thomas, Yaroslavsky, and Mr. Fujioka, At 8 p.m. on April 27, 2011, Richard Schulhof, the Executive Officer of the Los Angeles County Arboretum called Victor Vener, the California Philharmonic’s Music Director, on his cell phone, to inform him that the California Philharmonic was no longer invited to partner with the Arboretum and put on its Festival on the Green summer concert series at the Arboretum. Twelve minutes later, a Press Release on letterhead of Russ Guiney of the County’s Department of Parks & Recreation (“County”) was released, announcing that the Los Angeles County Arboretum would be negotiating exclusively with a different symphony, the Pasadena Symphony Association, for the summer concert series. As the Executive Officer, Mr. Schulhof’s apparent authority to negotiate agreements on behalf of County and the Arboretum Foundation has never been questioned. Indeed last year, when the California Philharmonic’s seven-year agreement to perform the Festival on the Green concerts expired, Mr. Schulhof entered into negotiations with the California Philharmonic for another multi-year contract. In October 2010, Mr. Schulhof was still negotiating terms for renewal of the contract with Victor Vener, and the California Philharmonic was ready and willing to negotiate and agree to terms with the Arboretum. However, Mr. Schulhof abruptly stopped negotiating, and indicated the Arboretum Board was going to take the contract out to bid through a Request for Proposal (“RFP”) that would be issued in January. Why the California Philharmonic was denied the opportunity to renew a partnership agreement in October, and why it was forced to spend scarce resources responding to an RFP in order to keep the partnership it had created and successfully maintained over the years, remains a mystery. In light of the response to the RFP, it is hard to imagine why an RFP was issued. Never before in the California Philharmonic’s experience had County utilized an RFP process to select a musical organization to perform a concert series at its parks. The Arboretum had access to any information it desired about the California Philharmonic, and had already begun negotiations. Only one other symphony in this community had the minimum qualifications to compete with the California Philharmonic for the Arboretum summer concert series, and that was the Pasadena Symphony. At all times, the Arboretum had the ability to negotiate with the Pasadena Symphony if the California Philharmonic was not meeting its obligations or the Arboretum’s or County’s expectations. If the Arboretum’s goal was to increase audience participation to increase revenue, there was no need to look beyond its own

ROOM TO RUN™ Dog Park Appreciation Project

Continued from page 14 backyard. The California Philharmonic’s concerts featuring Maestro Victor Vener, arguably the “father” of admission-charged concerts in parks in Los Angeles County, have regularly attracted crowds of 4,000 to 5,000 music lovers per event. (The Arboretum’s capacity is 5,000). The California Philharmonic’s audience turn-outs are second only to the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl when contrasted with similar productions in Southern California, and nearly double that of all other outdoor regional symphonies. On the other hand, in 2009 the Pasadena Symphony entered into a partnership with the City of Pasadena for use of the Lawn adjacent to the Rose Bowl as a home for its summer concerts, and before, its home base was the Descanso Gardens. Its audience participation at these sites never reached over 2,000. If the Arboretum was interested in increased rental income, a greater number of musical productions, a diversity in programming, or any other terms that would have generated increased revenue and attracted a still wider audience (within the physical limitations of the Arboretum site), it merely could have negotiated with the California Philharmonic. It has a proven track record in the community and at the Arboretum, a devoted following, tremendous critical acclaim, and a stable financial base. Importantly, for 15 years the Los Angeles County Arboretum has been the summer home of the California Philharmonic. The decision to deny it the right to re-negotiate its partnership and maintain its roots at the Arboretum leaves the California Philharmonic, its musicians, its volunteers, and its subscribers and fans, with no home at all. It also jeopardizes the existence of the California Philharmonic and its other partnership with the Walt Disney Concert Hall and its summer Sunday afternoon concerts. The Arboretum’s decision to oust the California Philharmonic, for no actual or apparent reason, is irresponsible to the residents of the County of Los Angeles. This decision, as it has been explained to the California Philharmonic, was made solely by the Arboretum Foundation without any input or direction of County, except to issue the Press Release affirming support of the decision. As we understand it, no one from County evaluated, voted upon, made any recommendations, or participated in the selection process concerning which symphonic organizations the Arboretum would negotiate with. No one from County participated in the panel that interviewed representatives of the California Philharmonic in the RFP process. We cannot fathom that a decision to cast out the California Philharmonic from a County Park can rest solely with a secret, uncommunicative, private group, or that County allowed a decision with such dire consequences to be made by a private group with no County oversight. County’s Press Release states that the Arboretum’s authority for cancelling its partnership agreement with the California Philharmonic is drawn from the 1998 Joint Operating Agreement that allows the Arboretum to manage special events. The California Philharmonic questions this authority. Its initial agreement to develop the Arboretum grounds into a concert venue precedes that Operating Agreement and was made directly with County. Arguably, the California Philharmonic’s partnership with the County of Los Angeles was “grandfathered” even before the Arboretum Foundation entered into an agreement with County to co-manage the Arboretum grounds. In addition, the Festival on the Green is not a “special event”, like a wedding or a garden show; since 1997, the California Philharmonic has presented the Festival on the Green in partnership with County Please see page 17

To support community dog parks and off-leash areas, The Nutro Company has teamed up with the City of Arcadia to host the ROOM TO RUN™ Dog Park Appreciation Project on May 7, 2011. Led by associates from The Nutro Company in partnership with City of Arcadia and members of the community, the ROOM TO RUN™ Project is a nationwide effort to enhance and revitalize dog parks in 30 cities across the U.S. and Canada. This year the dog park in Arcadia

has been chosen to be a part of the program. Last year, volunteers spent more than 1,500 man hours improving parks in their communities. So, roll up your sleeves and come join us this year! ROOM TO RUN™ projects will vary by location, but park projects may include painting fences, providing benches, picking up trash and landscaping. In an effort to focus on enhancements and for the safety of the dogs, pet owners may want to consider leaving their

four-legged pals at home during the enhancements and bring them to the park following the event.

Life Remembered

Gardens of Earthly Delight Continued from page 11 Porch Landscape Designer, Katharine Parra who worked to create not just a garden providing vegetables, but also ideas. There is the giant hummingbird crafted out of an old motorcycle engine and the edging created from old wine bottles and the cardboard “deer head” over the mantle of the fireplace which was created by reusing the old pool coping. To the south of the Guest Cottage are the last two gardens, the Tranquility Garden and the butterfly refuge. The restful atmosphere of the Tranquility Garden (Reliable Gardens, Inc.) is enhanced with the use of azaleas and gardenias as well as hedges of rosemary. These lead to the final garden stop, the Flight of the Monarchs. David Snow has taken the spot in the garden no one else wanted and turned it into a haven for the gentle creatures. By using

golds, oranges and purples he attracts the butterflies and then nurtures them by planting milkweed which is the favorite food source for caterpillars. It is a learning experience. All this and a visit to the shops is a free experience. If you visit the shops at Showcase House, be sure to taste the balsamic vinegars, the scones and the wonderful mustards. In one corner is a shop which should not be missed as it features baskets, trivets and coasters woven of pine needles: they smell great. The one thing no one should miss is Mark and Steven’s sun dried tomato pistachio pesto. It is worth a visit to Showcase House just for the chance to buy this. In fact all of showcase house is worth a visit. Check out the organization’s web site at ShowcaseHouse.org.

California Philharmonic Sends letter to Board of Supervisors Continued from page 15 and the Arboretum. This was confirmed by Mr. Schulhof himself in County’s Press Release, that states, “the Arboretum thanks the California Philharmonic for over a decade of successful partnership”. As a partner, the California Philharmonic has indeed provided its shares of successes for the Arboretum and County. Since it created the Festival on the Green venue, the California Philharmonic has generated over $500,000 for the Arboretum in rental income alone, and immeasurable revenue from Arboretum patrons driven by California Philharmonic marketing. Over the past 15 years, the California Philharmonic has provided vendor opportunities to more than 25 local restaurants. Its community partnerships have distributed free tickets to families with low incomes, local charities, and students. Every year the California Philharmonic gives opportunities to 700 adult and youth volunteers from Los Angeles County to learn about classical music, and to participate behind the scenes in the production of a major outdoor musical and cultural experience. The California Philharmonic’s partnership with the Arboretum has been rewarding for all parties and the community in many ways. Even assuming the Arboretum had the sole and exclusive right to end the partnership with the California Philharmonic, the Request for Proposal process it employed was flawed and improper. It does not explain the method of selection of the winning proposer to avoid any appearance of impropriety, collusion, or conflict of interest. Indeed, neither the California Philharmonic nor the public has any idea how the Pasadena Symphony was chosen to negotiate a partnership with the Arboretum at the California Philharmonic’s expense. The process was suspicious and raised many questions. For example, How did the Arboretum weigh a proposer’s strengths or weaknesses? Did the Arboretum Foundation consider the attached references and testimonials the California Philharmonic provided from the community, its musicians, its volunteers, its vendors, and the media? What value did the Arboretum place on the California Philharmonic’s 15 year partnership that generated near-full capacity audiences? How important in the decision was the California Philharmonic’s experience in organizing, setting up, and dismantling seamlessly perfect productions on the Arboretum grounds, providing its own equipment, tables, chairs, portable toilets, stage, sound system, electrical system, staff, volunteers, and clean-up crew? How did the Arboretum rate income generation, reputation, programming, production, audience satisfaction, financial strength, or service to the community? We do not know. The California Philharmonic demonstrated with proven data that since 1997 it brought over 300,000 patrons to the Arboretum grounds, that it generated more than $30 million for the local economy and $520,000 in rental revenue alone for the Arboretum, that it included the Arboretum’s name, logo, and address on marketing materials including over 10 million direct mail brochures and on its website, that its 3,000 volunteers have logged over 140,000 hours of community service, and that it has had no complaints about its clean up after concerts or its respect for the grounds. In disturbing contrast, the Pasadena Star News reported Thursday, “The PSA [Pasadena Symphony Association], beleaguered with financial troubles for the last few years, would benefit from both increased exposure and an additional income source [that moving to the Arboretum would offer]”. In the same article, PSA’s Mr. Zdunek states the move to the Arboretum will allow the PSA to perform to a wider audience. But, how can that be? The California Philharmonic has been filling the Arboretum concert lawn to capacity, and the Pasadena Symphony, in its past venues, has not. If anything, it appears the Arboretum Foundation believes the same audience will come to the Arboretum no matter which symphony is playing. This is a careless and irresponsible notion, clearly not researched and evaluated with care, if at all. It also shows a disregard for the sophistication and musical taste of the public that loves and supports the California Philharmonic and its respected Maestro, Victor Vener. Many of the Arboretum Board has never attended a California Philharmonic concert at the Arboretum, and it is not known whether Mr. Schulhof has ever attended. No one who attends a California Philharmonic concert forgets Dr. Vener. Dr. Vener’s appeal was warmly expressed by Ayke Agus, a California Philharmonic violinist and pianist: “Maestro Victor Vener has proven over and over – each time I sit and play on one of the seats in the Festival on the Green – how the Maestro manages to put a spell over his audiences through his introductory and educational presentation of each work of musical composition. He follows this with an exciting, moving musical journey which often takes the audience’s breath away.” The Pasadena Star News article from last Thursday offers a disturbing quote from Mr. Schulhof about the new partnership plans between the Arboretum and the Pasadena Symphony: “’We [Mr. Schulhof and Mr. Zdunek] have to sit down and work out the details of the relationship,’ such as seating and pricing, range of programming, the financial benefits to both as well as protection of the landscape”. What was the point of requesting intensely detailed information on these subjects in the RFP if they were all to be determined after a winning proposer was selected? Between the California Philharmonic and the Pasadena Symphony, what overwhelming qualification did the latter present to the Arboretum Foundation that resulted in denying the California Philharmonic at least an equal opportunity to negotiate a new partnership agreement at the venue it created and has called its home for 15 years? Mr. Schulhof and the Arboretum Board have taken the California Philharmonic through a months-long, wrenching, and troubling string of events that may lead to the destruction of the California Philharmonic for no good reason and with utter disregard for County’s or the public’s interest. The California Philharmonic created the outdoor concert concept out of the Bauer Lawn and Fountains at the Arboretum, and has grown the site into an amazing and lucrative outdoor musical venue called the Festival on the Green for 15 consecutive summers. Now that the Festival on the Green is established, stable, and has become a much-loved and well-attended cultural phenomenon in Los Angeles County, the Arboretum Board is poised to snatch it away from the California Philharmonic and give it to a competitor. Why? No one knows because the Arboretum Foundation has acted like a privately-held company in complete secrecy. The Arboretum did not consider the public’s interest when it decided to drive out the California Philharmonic from its Festival on the Green home. Within 48 hours after the word began to spread, demonstrators gathered at the Arboretum to protest this reckless decision. Attached are signatures of citizens of the County of Los Angeles who, with very little notice, changed their plans on Saturday morning to voice their shock and concern over the eviction of the California Philharmonic. This representative group wants action. Late last year, when the Arboretum Foundation abruptly stopped negotiations with Victor Vener and pronounced that it would be issuing a Request for Proposal, Dr. Vener verbally protested. In response, the President of the Board of the Arboretum Foundation told Dr. Vener that the only way the California Philharmonic would get a contract would be if it wins the bid, or if County forces the Arboretum to give him one. The California Philharmonic is a respected institution in the County of Los Angeles. At this point, it did not “win the bid”. Its only recourse is to seek County’s assistance to be treated in an even-handed, fair manner. The serious, irresponsible decision of the Arboretum Foundation, involving a multi-million dollar partnership with the Los Angeles community over multiple years, raises questions about how much unfettered autonomy County has given to the Arboretum Board, which seems to yield its power without any County audit, oversight, input or control. If County has any safeguards in place to ensure that the Arboretum Board is acting equitably and fairly, with complete transparency, this is the time to implement them. The Board of Directors of the California Philharmonic on behalf of its 300 musicians and choir-members, its volunteers, and its faithful and loyal public, protests the unilateral, unsubstantiated decision of the Arboretum Board to oust the California Philharmonic from its home of 15 years and deny it the right to negotiate for a renewed partnership agreement. The California Philharmonic appeals this reckless decision to the County Board of Supervisors and the County Executive Office, and requests an immediate investigation of the Arboretum Foundation and the manner and method by which it selected the Pasadena Symphony over the California Philharmonic to negotiate for future summer concerts. The California Philharmonic and the public have a right to transparency in a process that results in substantial revenue to County, job creation, good will, and the use of its public and cultural resources. The California Philharmonic’s desire is to renew its cherished partnership with the Arboretum and the County of Los Angeles, and to continue to provide music, culture, and education to the citizens of Los Angeles County. In a fair and transparent process, the California Philharmonic would be afforded that privilege. Thank you. Sincerely, Elizabeth M. Kessel Board Member Maestro Victor Vener and Robert Miller at the press conference Saturday morning. -Photo by Terry Miller On behalf of the Board of Directors”

The suspect(s) used a piece of red brick to break the window and made entry; they exited through the same window.

Rescue Log Sierra Madre Search and Rescue During the past month Sierra Madre Search and Rescue (SMSR) responded to eight calls for assistance, including: Injured Ankle, Chantry Flat: The Team was called to aid a hiker who fell while carrying a child across a creek near Chantry Flat. Medical assistance was provided and both parties were evacuated safely. Technical Rescue, Eaton Canyon: SMSR was called to assist Altadena Mountain Rescue in the technical rescue of a fallen hiker in Eaton Canyon. The injured hiker was stabilized and then lowered from a high point using a vertical litter setup. Stranded Hikers, Chantry Flat: The Team responded to a report of hikers stranded in a precarious position near a waterfall in the Chantry Flat area, but while searching for the parties it was learned that they were no longer in danger. Before leaving the area Team members already in the field were able to perform a “rescue” of sorts: assisting a different hiking party with retrieving a backpack that had been washed away. In addition to responding to calls for help, Team

members also performed two wilderness safety demonstrations at local elementary schools. SMSR maintains a high state of readiness by training regularly in its local area and with other mountain-rescue teams. In April the Team traveled to Joshua Tree National Park for an annual joint training with Joshua Tree Search and Rescue (JOSAR), Desert Sheriff’s Search and Rescue and the Riverside Mountain Rescue Unit. “This multi-agency training event has developed into an anticipated opportunity for the teams involved to gain and to hone skills, and to get to work together,” SMSR President Larry Smith said. During this event two SMSR members “got lost” in the park and the other participants--with no knowledge of the members’ locations--were tasked with finding them. Ground teams tracked the subjects using footprints and other clues. This year SMSR brought with it a new tool to help leaders manage the search: recently-developed GIS software designed specifically for search and rescue operations (SMSR has been instrumental in the development of this soft-

ware). “Individual searchers go into the field to track and look for clues, but they are dependent upon a few who run the base camp operation,” Smith said. “These folks make the search assignments, redirect teams in the field, man the radios, keep track of all the clues teams are finding, evaluate the clues and generally manage the operation. GIS, as it was applied, allowed the search leaders to track in real time the progress of the search teams, plot the clues found, give timely direction to the field teams, and overall more effectively run the search. JOSAR was particularly impressed with the technology Sierra Madre brought to the search.” The all-volunteer SMSR team has been serving the local community for 60 years. Funded entirely by private donations, SMSR provides a range of public programs on wilderness safety in addition to its search and rescue activities. The Team never charges for any of its services. For more information, including how to arrange a wilderness safety demonstration for your school or group, visit www.smsr.org.

Monroe Elementary School Offers Dual-Language Immersion Program Monrovia Unified School District’s dual-immersion Spanish/English academy at Monroe Elementary School is accepting students for the 20112012 school year. This fall, Monroe is offering the program for kindergarten and first-grade students. The goal is for all students to become completely fluent and literate in two languages. Instruction is presented by the teacher pri-

marily in Spanish in Kindergarten and first grade. The amount of English is increased each year. By fifth grade, the amount of English is increased to 50 percent of the school day. Learning a second language at an early age enriches and enhances a child’s academic development. It also benefits them by promoting creative thinking and a greater sensitivity to languages. Enrollment packets for

this program are available now for this upcoming school year, and space is limited. Parents who are interested in learning more about this program are encouraged to attend parent meetings on Friday mornings at 8:15 at Monroe School. For more information, or to schedule a school tour, please call the office at (626) 471-2300.

A HEARING on the petition will be held on June 3, 2011 at 8:30 AM in Dept. No. A located at 300 E. Walnut St., Pasadena, CA 91101. IF YOU OBJECT to the grant-ing 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 de-ceased, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative ap-pointed by the court within four months from the date of first is-suance of letters as provided in Probate Code section 9100. The time for filing claims will not expire before four months from the hear-ing date noticed above. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court.
