Sierra Madre City Manager Elaine Aguilar confirmed Wednesday that the City of Sierra Madre has been served with a lengthy 359 page lawsuit filed by attorney and former councilman Kurt Zimmerman on behalf of John Crawford. Crawford a former council candidate and local blogger has been an insatiable critic of the city. In February, Crawford served the city with a written demand to repeal the ordinance implementing the city’s water rate increase. We and other publications printed that letter in its entirety. The suit, which was filed with the court on Friday, May 6, 2011, was received by Elaine Aguilar and staff Tuesday afternoon. May 10, 2011. Beacon Media has attempted to get comment from Crawford without success. However, when John Stephens former editor at this publication and now editor at AOL’s sierrama-

BY TERRY MILLER Former Mayor Cathé Wilson was convicted by a jury of six felony counts of bribery and perjury last week. Wilson, 78, faces nine years in state prison. Judge Alex Ricciardulli is expected to pass sentence on June 2, according to Deputy District Attorney Sean Hassett. Wilson told Beacon Media that she feels like she’s “living in another world – it’s scary, very scary.” Maintaining her innocence throughout the ordeal, Wilson said she was not the ‘ringleader’ as a recent scathing editorial in the Pasadena Star News said. The Superior Court jury deliberated for about half an hour and found Wilson guilty of three felony counts receiving a bribe and three counts of perjury under oath two weeks ago. Developer Randy 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. During our interview Wilson once again reiterated her shock and disbelief as she “listened to all the lies during the proceedings.” “The DA even made fun of fact that I “adopt” kids,” she said. In addition to having five children, one of who was murdered, Wilson has 8 grandkids, 12 great grand children and one great-great grand child. Wilson has a reputation in town for being motherly to eveyone she meets (hence the DA’s comments). In discussing the guilty on 6 felony counts Wilson said “I couldn’t believe what the jury said”. “I’m in shock” As she tried to hide the tears watering up in her eyes

On May 1 The City of Monrovia embraced the history culture of Mexico and in particular, discovered the magic of Cinco de Mayo thanks, in no small part to Rutilio “Rudy” Castrellon, who spearheaded a huge festival which brought 7,000 to Monrovia. The Battle of Puebla took place on 5 May 1862 near the city of Puebla during the French intervention in Mexico. The battle ended in a victory for the Mexican Army against the occupying French forces. The victory is celebrated today during the festivities of Cinco de Mayo, the 5th of May. The French had come to collect the debt owed to them by Mexico—debts that Mexican President Benito Juarez (from in Oaxaca, Mexico) had officially suspended because the country was essentially bankrupt. The 1857-60 civil war in Mexico had disorganised the country’s finances and the new President, Benito Juárez, was forced to suspend payments of foreign debts in 1861. In late 1861 Napoleon III, Emperor of the French, under the Treaty of London (1861) sent a joint expeditionary force to Mexico, alongside Spanish and English forces, to protect their interests and collect the debts owed by the previous Mexican government. The allied troops occupied the port city of Veracruz on December 8, 1861 and advanced to Orizaba. Napoleon III wanted to seize the opportunity presented by the U.S. involvement in the Civil War to set up a puppet Mexican regime. Napoleon’s intrigues led to the withdrawal of the Spanish and British troops in April 1862. At the same time French reinforcements arrived. On May 1, we celebrated Cinco de Mayo in Monrovia with people enjoying live music, dancing and foods of our culture. We give thanks to all who participated. Rudy’s Castrellon, owner of Monrovia’s pop Mexican Restaurant is proud of his community and would like to thank those involved in making May 1st a day to remember. Castrellon also thanks city officials of Monrovia and Oaxaca for their support in the event. Castrellon said that next and each consecutive year the Cinco de Mayo Celebration will grow into one of the premier events in Monrovia. With 6000 plus participants this year, it seems he’s off to a good start. Thank you Monrovia for embracing the holiday and but most of all he wants to thank his family for all their support through all the planning and preparation that made this highly successful event so special to him. Mexicans, you see, never forget who their friends are, and neither do Americans. That’s why Cinco de Mayo is such a party -- A party that celebrates freedom and liberty. There are two ideals which Mexicans and Americans have fought shoulder to shoulder to protect, ever since the 5th of May, 1862. VIVA! El CINCO DE MAYO!!

BY SUSAN MOTANDER In the Biblical story we all learned as children, Delilah undid Samson’s strength by cutting his hair. This Delightful Delilah has enough going for her that she can easily be the undoing of all seven Samsons she will meet in Library Park. She is one of eight huge fiberglass bears created to help celebrate Monrovia’s 125th birthday. She is definitely an Ursa Major as the professional fitters at Creative Woman (truly the Wizard of Bras) have estimated that if they had to fit her with a corset, she would wear a 54 G. If that doesn’t make the rest of us feel petite, nothing will. But for her big day, the luscious lady will be sporting a licentious lavender bikini, crimson painted nails, and (what lady would be caught without) her daytime pearls. Creative Woman sponsored this creation and they showed they are truly wizards with the magic they worked on this, the ultimate in ursine beauty. The bearly clad lady bear will be joined by her seven Samson consorts. Three others were also spon-

sored by local businesses. Athens is providing an Ecofriendly Bear who is promoting the three Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle (frankly living in Bear County, I think they missed the boat in not revealing Samson’s true love: raiding trashcans). Dr. Demotor’s Animal Hospital and Norma Haley are supplying a bear entitled “Night and Day in Monrovia” a special feature of which is a depiction of the Monrovia Old Town Trolley on the Bear’s “Caboose.” Mt. Sierra College has “Eddie” the Education Bear who will appear in the Monrovia Day Parade with his own hot tub. The Friends of the Monrovia Public Library are supplying another of the bears. Their bear is “Bearlovian Paradise,” an depiction of all things in nature. The City of Monrovia’s Art in Public Places provied the other three bears. Rick Kess, who has a day job at Disney created a “Tourist Bear” complete with Hawaiian shirt and straw hat. Also from the Monrovia’s Fine Arts group comes an Artist Bear. This Beartnick crated by Rachel Quimayousia has

a beret and a goatee. The last city sponsored bear was created by students from Monrovia High School and the students in Mrs. Parker’s Art class. They are providing the city with a William Newton Monroe Bear in honor of one of the city’s founders and its namesake. Clearly they are no match for the curvaceous creation from those very creative Wizards. She will vamp the Samsons. The original Samson was the old bear, who in the 1990s frequented Norumbega Drive and famously languished in Gary Potter’s hot tub (who could blame him - he had bursitis). The video of the old California black bear enjoying a true Southern California tradition may have been what prompted then Governor Pete Wilson (in the only time he did so) to commute the bear’s death penalty sentence. Samson went on to live the life of Riley in the Orange County Zoo in Irvine. He even had his own waterfall in his compound and Calvo Avocados delivered weekly, courtesy of that company.

Friday the 13th TheGoodLife

BY WALLY HAGE Friday the 13th is a day in which many people dread and consider to be very unlucky. If they plan something on Friday the 13th they assume that it will go wrong. This superstitious day on the calendar generally occurs from one to three times a year. However, this year, Friday the 13th will only occur in May. Fear of Friday the 13th, one of the most popular myths in science, is called Paraskavedekatriaphobia as well as Friggtriskaidekaphobia and Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13. Now if anyone can remember these names and spell them correctly after reading this column they belong in the Guinness Book of World Records.

According to Smithsonian Magazine the fear of the number 13 costs Americans millions of dollars per year in severely reduced commerce including train and plane cancellations. Some people are so afraid that they refuse to get out of bed, or go to work on Friday 13th. Because of the superstition of the number 13, some hotels and office building don’t have a 13th floor. According to some sources Friday the 13th is the most common superstition in the United States today. Some people even refuse to eat out in restaurants. Many brides would not think of setting a wedding date on the thirteenth. Superstitions can be described as beliefs that have no rational basis. Most of us probably don’t even know why we give a little shudder when we see a Friday the 13th looming on the calendar or toss salt over the shoulder when the shaker gets spilled. Since superstitions of all kinds are somewhat common, I

have gathered some humorous “superstition trivia” that even you may practice. A rabbit’s foot should be carried at all times to bring luck and ensure a long life. Breaking a mirror will result in seven years of bad luck. Don’t step on a crack in the sidewalk, as it certainly will bring bad luck. Don’t walk under a ladder or let a black cat cross your path. Don’t open an umbrella indoors. An acorn at the window will keep lightning out. It’s bad luck to put a hat on a bed. Amber beads, worn as a necklace, can protect against illness or cure colds. Locating a bed facing north and south is unlucky. Don’t move on a Friday, or you won’t stay there very long. Last and most humorous ... If a bird flies towards you, it’s bad luck for your new suit.

Cheer Up Ducky Dorothy's Place

BY DOROTHY DENNE Spring is here, the ducklings are arriving. A friend of mine asked, “Do you remember the column you wrote about the duck butts? I loved that.” I didn’t remember it very clearly so I went searching. I found it. Here you go: [Feeling a little low as you settle with your coffee and paper? Well cheer up, Ducky. Life could be worse. You might really be a ducky. Then you would stand on your head to eat. That’s right. Trust me. This morning I rounded the bend on my walk in the Arboretum and there in the pond in front of me were all these cute little duck butts sticking up out of the water. Yep, absolutely vertical with the tail feathers pointing Heavenward. Little feet paddled furiously just at the

water’s surface so the little butts wouldn’t fall backward before the little moths had gathered enough food. Picture that, then change a couple of things. Imagine YOU were a duck I rounded the bend and there in front of me was a pond full of you-type butts pointing Heavenward. Presents a slightly different picture huh? I can’t really explain why that thought crossed my mind as I watched all those cute little duckies. They are commonly called tip-ups or dip-ups. Maybe that accounts for my thought. I know some humans who are dips, they sometimes get tipsy and their lives are just ducky. Now I’m stretching it a bit aren’t I? The only other explanation I can think of is simply that I sometimes tend to see things from a different perspective. It doesn’t matter though does it? Some things

shouldn’t be explained, just accepted and enjoyed. You’ve got to admit, if you are feeling a little down (no pun intended), either the real or the mental picture should lift your mood. Reminds me of a time I was vacationing in Hawaii. Being a duck would have been helpful. I was on a date with a fellow I had met at a luau on the previous evening. I was dressed in my best Hawaii-vacation finery in an attempt to make an impression that would lead to more dates before the vacation ended. We were dining pool side at one of the fancy hotels. I felt a need to visit the ladies room. I excused myself, stood up, turned, walked straight into the pool and sunk to the bottom. I think that is one of those things that needn’t be explained. Just draw up the mental picture, accept it, enjoy it and cheer up Ducky.]

in a press release. “Duarte continues to have serious concerns over substantial health and environmental impacts this project will have on both our residents as well as those of the entire San Gabriel Valley. In the Statement of Decision, which explained the denial of the case, Judge Mcknew found no support for Duarte’s claim that in terms of air quality, mining operations are essentially “construction/demolition projects” and therefore construction thresholds should be imposed instead of operational thresholds. Also in the Statement, “The lead agency selected mass daily emission thresholds because federal and state air quality standards are given in terms of 24 hour periods and because short term exposure is what determines whether there is a risk to human health.” This means that

McKnew ruled that Azusa took proper measures to ensure air quality safety before deciding to allow the expansion. The increase in annual emissions was also analyzed and deemed less than significant, a vote of safe. At Duarte City Council on Tuesday May 10, resident of 29 years Allen Field begged the mayor and council members to not pursue an appeal. $500,000 has been spent on the project already, and another $200k could be spent on appeals, according to Field, who believes that the money should be put back into the already small budget, and used to restore other community programs. In a Tuesday May 2 budget workshop, it was decided that numerous cutbacks would be made, including eliminating one Special Assistant Deputy

Police Officer, eliminating supervision at Encanto Park, eliminating trail maintenance, reducing funding for Duarte Unified School District, and eliminating the Moonlight Basketball program. It was also decided at this workshop, that an additional $15,000 would be spent on a 2013 Rose Float, though Duarte opted not to fund the float in 2012. The City of Duarte has at least 60 days to determine if it will file an appeal with the State Appeals Court. The City of Azusa stands to make upwards of $65 million on the mining project, which hopes to extract 105.6 million tons of aggregate between now and 2038. The aggregate that Vulcan produces are used in almost all forms of construction projects, particularly concretes for road repair.

Elements Café: Fresh, Local, and Distinctive BY VICTOR BUELL

Elements Café, 107 S Fair Oaks Ave, Pasadena, is chef/owner Onil Chibás’ accidental restaurant. It began as a catering operation. Customers started picking up their orders and asking if they could eat on the premises. Chibás added tables, hired a few servers, and pretty soon had a bustling Café. The décor is striking in its contrasts. Large, smooth milled oak community tables are intended to be shared, so when the place is crowded you’ll be encouraged to meet someone new. Old brick walls on one side, whitewashed concrete on the other, bare floors. It’s at once rustic and modern, stark and warm, industrial and homey. Silverware and napkins are set in baskets for you to grab as needed, family-style. Overall I was impressed with the impeccable attention to detail and order, and the cleanliness. The Café serves breakfast Tue thru Fri from 8am – 11am, and lunch from 11am – 3pm. Sat and Sun is brunch from 8:30am – 4pm, and closed Monday. We had lunch, but I will be back for breakfast and brunch on my own time soon. While we looked over

the menu, sipping freshly made Arnold Palmers that never went empty, we were treated to addictive housemade potato chips. 2 baskets disappeared before the real food showed up. First came the Baby Spinach Salad. Everything about Elements Café is a mix of “what you might expect” with some unexpected ingredient or twist on presentation that makes you notice. The dressing is a Sherry-apple vinaigrette. Accenting the fresh-picked spinach are applewood-smoked bacon and candied pecans, all garnished with apple slices that have been poached in white wine, and toast tips coated with gorgonzola. Next we tried two sandwiches and one remarkable discovery. The Elements’ Cheese Steak sandwich features choice tri-tip braised in veal stock, with caramelized onions and spicy pickled green bell pepper. Cheese? Nothing ordinary of course, they use Tomme Pilota which asserts itself but does not overpower. Garlic aioli spread on a pane baguette completed the construction. Sandwich two: CubanStyle Pulled Pork, also served

on a baguette spread with black bean hummus and orange and onion mojo and fried plantains. I confess I preferred it with the plantains picked out, but I’d order again. Finally, a gem called “Mac n’ Cheese.” I know. Gourmet versions are commonplace nowadays, but this was the best I have tried in a long time. And I was surprised to learn the cheeses are American, cheddar, and jack. You can order additions including chicken, bacon, house-dried tomatoes, or our choice: wild mushrooms and truffle oil, and topped with crunchy panko crust. (During brunch this is available with butter-poached lobster.) Order this for the table; if you are between the ages of 6 and 160, you’ll be very pleased. Chef Chibás and Chef de Cuisine Alberto Morales serve what would best be classified as “New American” cuisine, featuring fresh and local ingredients. Prices are reasonable for this level of fare, and portions are substantial. On the web: www.elementskitchen.com, on Twitter: @elementskitchen, by telephone: 626-440-0100.

Traffic Stop Leads to Arrest and Seizure of about $80,000 in Ecstasy Pills A traffic stop for a stop sign violation leads to the arrest of an 18 year old man in possession of about 8,000 ecstasy pills yesterday. The pills were packaged in 8 separate zip-lock bags, containing approximately 1,000 pills per bag. The total estimated street value of the pills is about $80,000. Johnny V. Pham, resident of Rosemead, was stopped by an Arcadia Police Officer shortly after 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10, 2011, on Golden West Avenue near Huntington Drive, for failing to stop at a stop sign. Pham was accompanied by a 17 year old male passenger from San Gabriel. During

the traffic stop, officers saw what appeared to be a large zip-lock bag containing a large quantity of pills lying on the floorboard of the vehicle Pham was driving. Officers conducted a search of the vehicle and found an additional 7 large bags in the trunk, also containing similar pills, all appearing to be ecstasy. Pham and his juvenile passenger were arrested for felony possession for sales and transportation of controlled substances. Both were booked at the Arcadia City Jail. Pham was later released after having a $100,000 bond posted. The juvenile was released on citation to a parent.

Former Temple City Mayor Cathe Wilson Talks with Beacon Media about her Family, Faith and Future Continued from page 1

Wilson said, “I’ve devoted my life to Temple City”. “I’ve given 48 years of my life to this city. 42 of those years as a Sunday School teacher.” Wilson also has volunteered for years at the Sheriff’s Dept. and was President of their Booster Club. She also stared the Blue Star and sister cities programs in Temple City.

Despite some of the tragedies Wilson has faced in her 78 years, her faith has kept her on a straight and narrow path. “I put my life in the Lord’s hands. I pray a lot” she said. “I feel like I’m following in the Lord’s Footsteps…He has something planned for me, I know.” Wilson said she is proud of her community sevice record and that she knows deep in her heart that she’s done no wrong “It’s all untrue, “she said of the allegations. Stating that the Bell scandal obviously didn’t help her case in the court of public opinion, Wilson’s family and friends have created a tight bond and a secure safety net for the former Mayor who has served on coucil

from 1990-2003 and then from 2005 -2009. Refering to colleague Judy Wong, she said she fely bad for her althoughshe admitted “I never liked Judy – I found she wasn’t trustworthy but wanted to give her a chance at being Mayor.” When asked how the general public reacts to Wilson now that she has been convicted she says “Some are veryt supportive and others just look away when they see me. I don’t go out much.” Legal fees have which necessitated Wilson taking a reverse Mortgage in an 4effort to battle the charges are now in excess of $300,000. “I have nothing now, and owe so much,” Wilson told Beacon Media. In addition to the finacial strain, the stress of fighting the charges has led to some serious health issues for the 78 year old former Mayor. The only other time Wilson was ever accused of a “crime” was in 1978. “I was going too slowly on the freeway on my 35th bithday. Other than that, I have a clean record.” Wilson said.

Wilson said there was no proof whatsoever that she gave Capra $5000. “None of the allegations is true” Wilson stated emphatically. “Carweille lied, he said I gave him $3000. 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. Part 2 –

GET EYEBROWS THAT RAISE EYEBROWS.

Wilson said if she did do as the DA alledges, that she’d deserve the punishment but catagorically denies all the allegations except the voice on the tape which she originally said was not hers due to the inaudable quality. “I’ve been tratred worse than the killed who killed our daughter in April of 1982… he got 30 days in jail due to a lehal loophole.” Wilson told Beacon Media. “What upsets me is tghat they kept talking about Judy and that I was the ‘ringleader’….I could not stand Judy and knew she was a liar.” she added. Wilson asserted that she is the only one who pled “not guilty” to all charges and didn’t accept a plea like the rest of those involved. Cathe Wilson went on to say the whole proceedure has been one big “farce” but admitted to being a little frightened about June 2. We asked Wilson about the car incident that garnard so much attention when she needed to borrow a vehicle to see her daughter. To this Wilson said it was a “perceived bribe” and that “Jay said he’d put it on his credit card” referring to the project manager of the Piazza project. “I was really in favor of the project from the beginning, why would I need a bribe?” Wilson told Beacon last Friday. “Things are unfair” Wilson said while sitting at her kitchen table clutching a cup of coffee. She reitterated that she’s given her life to Temple City and said “I’ve never hurt anyone intentionally, If I have, I’m sorry.” Regaring a ‘gift’ of the watch: Wilson had this to say: “Randy Wang called and asked me to meet him at the Mall. He said ‘I have something important to give you.’ I don’t like the Mall so we

met at Starbucks. He handed me a package and said ‘This is from my famuily and I for your support of my project.’ When I got home I opened the package and realized it was a very expensive watch worth thousands of dollars.” When Wilson said she could not accept the gift from Randy Wang he apparently said “I feel bad – I called Jay and said he had to get the watch back from Cathe Wilson.” Despite Wilson’s approval of the project she said tha “Randy turned on all of us (on council)” “I treated Jay like a son… They all turned on me.” said Wilson. She also said that Jay was “ripping Randy off with Kickbacks.” On the witness stand Wilson said “He broke down and cried and couldn’t look at me. On the question of the $2000, Wilson said her daughter got behind on a condo payment and Wang offered to help her. Wilson came up with $1000 and Wang the rest. “It was a loan for my daughter.” Asserting that she has told the truth all along, Wilson said she cannot understand how this all happened and how a Grand Jury could have indicted her with no evidence. Wilson told Beacon Media that she “probably would not last if I went to jail…” and mentioned that her anxiety is getting help thanks to her doctor, friends and therapist. “The whole affair is a nightmare” Wilson concluded. She hopes that friends and people in the community who do belive in her will stage a show of support for her 8:30 a.m. sentencing on June 2 in Los Angeles. Wilson faces a possible nine years in prison or could be given probabtion.

Blogger Files Lawsuit against Sierra Madre Continued from page 1 derpatch.com requested comment from Crawford, and apparently received a few foul-mouthed expletives from the blogger instead. The suit alleges that the City Council violated the provisions of Proposition 218, which gives ratepayers the right to protest any proposed increase in rates, along with other alleged violations. City Council recently approved a four-year water rate hike of roughly 7.5 percent a year with slightly larger increases for those who consume more water. As with all lawsuits, the city has 30 days to respond.

The exhibition is now on display through Friday, June 10 in Sierra Madre City Hall, 232 W.

The event is open to the public and light refreshments will

be served. “Since very young, I have inclined toward the creative both dance and art. My grandmother painted and I spent long summers at her country home in Connecticut. I watched her sketch in nature or paint in her studio. This childhood exposure strongly influenced me. I took up ceramics while living in Chicago. I worked at Lill Street Studios, where I did wheel work and handbuilding. More recently,

I have focused on cutouts. Dance has infiltrated my art. As a young girl I danced, and have continued to social dance in more recent years. A common theme in my artwork is a female figure depicted metaphorically within a simplified landscape.” Christine Prentice For more information please call the Sierra Madre Community & Personnel Services Department at (626) 355-5278.

Sierra Madre General Plan Update Town Hall Forum Arcadia PD Seeks Vehicular Manslaughter Charges Against Driver in Crosswalk Death Draws Scores of Concerned Residents Saturday The City of Sierra Madre and the General Plan Update Steering Committee (GPSC) sought input from the public at a Town Hall Saturday, May 7. The forum is a community wide “brain storming” session to help determine the vision to carry Sierra Madre into the next 20-30 years according to a press release sent out by the city. Scores or residents and non-residents put their ideas on paper for the city to review and no doubt hold another meeting to show the findings in the not-too-distant future. “The focus of this forum was families, youth, businesses, services, and institutions.” This was the second in a series of fo-

rums 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. 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.

Claremont Official Appointed Director of Pasadena Human Services and Recreation Department

P

asadena City Manager Michael J. Beck has announced the appointment of Mercy Santoro as director of the Human Services and Recreation Department effective June 1. The department develops neighborhood leadership and linkages and promotes positive use of recreation and leisure time. Social services, recreation and education activities are delivered at several community centers and parks in Pasadena as well as 14 Pasadena Unified School District sites. Over the past two years Santoro has directed the Human Services Department in Claremont, including social services, human relations, recreation classes, adult and youth sports programs, and parks and facilities management. “Mercy Santoro has all the qualifications and capabilities needed for Pasadena’s next director of human services and recreation,” said Beck. “I am confident she will continue the traditions of leadership, management and community partnerships that have been the hallmarks of the department.” During her tenure in Claremont, Santoro oversaw the update to the city’s Youth and Family Master Plan, developed a

phased approach to the 17-acre Padua Avenue Community Park with Claremont’s first sustainable park design, carried out a needs assessment to direct services and programs communitywide, developed the process for restoration of the 144-acre Sycamore Canyon Park, helped secure more than $4.5 million in grant funding to acquire 150 acres of open space, coordinated the city’s homeless funds and resources with local agencies, developed the Healthy Community Policy adopted by the Claremont City Council this year and initiated various branding efforts to convey wellness benefits of services through city programs and the park system. “I am honored by the opportunity to join the Pasadena team and look forward to meeting and working with the community and staff in addressing the quality of life needs of our great city,” said Santoro. “I plan to be present in community life so I can connect with partners to ensure our goals for community well-being remain a top priority.” Santoro served as deputy director of the Claremont Human Services Department from 2006 to 2009, was a superintendent and supervisor in the

department from 2000 to 2006 and was recreation supervisor and coordinator for the Rialto Recreation and Community Services Department from 1995 to 2000. She taught developmental psychology at the University of La Verne as adjunct faculty from 2005 to 2007. She holds a Master’s Degree in child development from the University of La Verne and a Bachelor’s Degree in English literature from California State University-San Bernardino. She is Claremont’s liaison to the San Gabriel Valley Housing and Homeless Coordinating Council, is a member of the California Parks and Recreation Society, completed studies in human services leadership from Pacific Oaks College and certification in recreation risk management from the Joint Powers Insurance Authority.

The mother of one daughter, Santoro lives in Claremont.

Detective Mike Hale and other APD officers investigate the accident that took the like of 16 year olf Alice Zhang last month. - Photos by Terry Miller

girls crossing the crosswalk but apparently the 19 year old driver of the Lexus did not. Attorney Evan Freed told Beacon Media that his client who is 19 years old has no criminal record and has been in the Army Reserves for approximately 1 year. Freed said “Most of all, it is a tragedy that destroyed the life of one young girl and severely injured another.” “As I understand it ( the case being presented to the DA) the case is light refraction.” “Was it prudent for my client to drive his car and was he ‘driving blind’ as a result of the dirty windshield and the light of the sun striking the windshield?” Freed said. He added that all these questions will be weighed once he gets all the evidence. The other girl who was hit in the crosswalk in this accident has had several surgeries according to sources and suffered optic nerve damage. Part of her skull had to be removed to reduce swelling on the optic nerve to prevent blindness and a second plate

put in her head. Detective Hale said that other drivers had stopped at the crosswalk where Zhang and her friend were crossing but the 19 year old driver of the Lexus did not apparently see the two teenagers in the crosswalk. Attorney Freed told Beacon media that his client and his family are devastated by this accident. Freed’s client faces up to 3 years in prison if convicted of gross negligence and vehicular manslaughter. If charged and convicted of the lesser crime (Non gross vehicular manslaughter) his client could face 1 year in county jail. Freed has been contacted by a civil attorney on behalf of the family of Alice Zhang and her friend. Students and friends of Alice Zhang petitioned Council Members and the Mayor at last week’s City Council Meeting for support of the ForAlice Movement, and their goal of changing the crosswalk on West Duarte Road where Alice was killed.

The movement, which was created following the tragic death of 16 year old Alice Zhang, is asking for a public hearing to discuss potential changes to the crosswalk, support, and ideas. They presented council members with photos and stories of how they too had difficulty crossing that intersection. 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. 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.

Pasadena Based Los Angeles Children's Chorus Wraps 25th Anniversary Season With Special Edition of Annual Spring Concert May 14, 7 p.m. at Ambassador Auditorium

The Doobie Brothers were a bit hit at this year’s Pot O’ Gold, Arcadia Rotary Club’s big bash, Saturday April 30th. (L-r) Frank Griffith, Terry Earl, Dave Freeman, Mimi Hennessy and Celest Kelly. Lots of Fun.

Arcadia City Manager, Don Penman, Gives ‘State of the City' at Woman's Club May 4th Pasadena based L.A. Children’s Chorus. (L-r) Dr. Kenneth Wogensen, head of Stroke Center), Michael Driebe Foundation President, Luz Serquina, Christy-Joy Brendel and Debbi Cordano co-chairs of Stroke Awareness program at Methodist Hospital.

I was invited to attend a press conference on stroke awareness on April 29th at Arcadia Methodist Hospital. Dr. Kenneth Wogensen, medical director, led the discussion, with Dennis Lee, hospital C.E.O., Mike Driebe, Foundation president, Luz Serquina and cochair of the stroke program Christy-Joy Brendel and Deborah J. Cordano. I came away with two very important facts – move, don’t sit around guessing or waiting to see if symptoms will diminish, call paramedics, they will get you to the right treatment center. Methodist and Huntington Hospitals are both equipped with the specialized care needed to prevent brain damage or paralysis. The length of time you have is called the “golden hour.” If you receive treatment within this time frame, your chances of coming out of a heart attach or stroke without damage to your faculties are escellent. Dr. Wogensen kept repeating “UNPLUG THE PLUG FAST” a miracle drug T.BA, dis-

solves blood clots fact and is one of the major players in this time frame. Know Stroke Symptoms: Stroke strikes F.A.S.T. and you should, too. Many people don’t know that if you can recognize the symptoms of a stroke you can save not only your life, but maybe the life of someone else. Being able to recognize symptoms and to understand that they signal an emergency, you are able to seek medical attention quickly. Treatment. Exists to minimize the effects of stroke; however, it must be given within three hours of the first symptom. It is easy for people to recognize stroke symptoms by learning to act F.A.S.T. and calling 9-1-1. F = Face Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop? A = Arms Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward? S = Speech Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence. Are the words slurred? T – Time If you observe any of these signs, then it’s time to call 9-1-1.

Los Angeles Children’s Chorus (LACC), which has been enchanting audiences for 25 years and is considered one of the world’s foremost children’s choirs, culminates a year-long celebration of its first quarter century with a special 25th anniversary edition of its annual Spring Concert, showcasing choir members current and former at the spectacular Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena, May 14, 7 p.m. This moving performance, which includes special appearances by the renowned Calder Quartet and an LACC

This lecture was in conjunction with the Museum’s exhibit of the same name, which will run from April 30-June 25. Mr. Pink put together this unique

Don Penman, Arcadia City Manager, gives “State of the City” at Arcadia -Photo by Terry Miller Woman’s Club Luncheon.

The large audience of members, husbands and guests sat in rapt attention as Don Penman, Arcadia’s city manager, spilled forth with no spin information on every important aspect facing the city today, including the latest on the Rusnak project, the mall expansion, the Gold Line, street projects, City Hall redone, Dana Gym, working with school districts, etc. Penman has been lauded for his expertise and management style. A graduate of U.S.C. with a Master of Public Administration and a B.A. in Political Science and Public Administration from Cal. State Long Beach, he has proven to be an important leader in keeping Arcadia the extraordinary

City it is. The meeting brought forth an exciting element for me. I was honored by Mayor Gary Kovacic and the Federation both state and district officers, for my 50 years of membership and service. Mayor Kovacic declared it “Floretta Lauber Day,” a surprise. Arcadia PresidentElect Barbara Lampman presented me with a bouquet of long stem roses. A delightful addition to the day was a surprise visit from society columnist Patt Diroll looking like she just left the Royal wedding. It was a day I won’t forget. The Installation Tea on June 1st closes the club year until September membership brunch.

Monrovia's big 125 Year Celebreation this Weekend Continued from page 1

-Photo by Terry Miller

Last year’s Monrovia Day Parade

moved to Thursday evening. The parade will start at 7:00 p.m. from the corner of Myrtle and Chestnut Avenues, and will travel north to Library Park, Myrtle and Palm Avenues. The theme of the parade is Cruising with Samson and the grand marshall will be Steve Baker, Monrovia’s elected City Treasurer and appointed City Historian. THe parade is sponsored by the Monrovia Old Town Merchants. The next day, Friday is the annual Don Montgomery Golf Tournament. Don Montgomery was the late superintendent of schools in Monrovia and a graduate of Monrovia High. He, his son and granddaughter were all members of the Mary B. Thorne Club which honors Monrovia High School athletes each year with scholarship assistance. The Golf Tournament benefits that Club and the local YMCA. Every year the Club gives four scholarships of $500 each to 4 students and those students are able to continue receiving the same amount for the four years of their college or higher educa-

tion studies. While the golf schedule is full for this year, contributions can still be made to the fund by contacting Chuck Pollard, 257 Aspen, Monrovia, 91016. The portion of the proceeds which is allotted to the Y assists the Association with camp scholarships and other programs that benefit young people who might not otherwise benefit from the programs the YMCA offers. Saturday is the center of focus of the festivities. Perhaps one of the most important is the unveiling of the new project of the Monrovia Firefighters Association. See the related story on page ___. The pancake breakfast runs from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. The cost is only $4 per person for pancakes, sausage and beverages. But there will be a great many things for the kids including a junior firefighter challenge, bouncers, and a balloon man. Saturday morning will also see the race from “The Fountain to the Falls” Run/ Walk. The race will start at the fountain in front of the Monrovia Public Library on Myrtle Avenue and will run

north up Myrtle Avenue to Greystone where it will switch to run eastbound. At Canyon, the route will again head north to the entrance of Canyon Park and then all the way to Monrovia Falls. The participants will then return to Library Park. The whole course is 7 miles. There will be an awards ceremony in Library Park at 10 a.m. with awards presented to the first place male and female competitors. Also in Library Park, local chiropractor, Dr. Mercado will be offering participants assistance including suggested stretching moves and refreshments. Quota Club will also be providing sustenance for the runner/walkers. The merchants will be providing all sorts of entertainment in the park if you are not a runner (or even a walker). There will be Samson Face Painting. A cupcake Contest for which interested individuals can register that day. There will also be a Samson Balloon distribution, and a Samson Look alike Contest. Several local restaurants are having Monrovia Day Specials on Saturday.

The Monrovia Reads Van will also be present along with New York Life Insurance which will provide fingerprinting and ID kits. The Friends of the Monrovia Public Librar will also hold its semi-annual book sale. Lastly there will be a concert in the park. Starting at 4:30 p.m. Stone Soul will entertain Monrovians to bring a conclusion to the

The high quality Thoroughbreds are typically 2-6 years old, and many sold for $60K- $350K as yearlings. Once they retire from an injury, or just from lack of speed, TROTT is there to ready them for adoption with a lot of loving R&R. Nick Nolte was also on hand to watch the races with Carolyn Conley of HRTV and support Trott. Nolte and Dustin Hoffman are filming a new HBO series LUCK at the track – The season premiere of LUCK has yet to be announced.

Monrovia Firefighters Start Their Newest Fight The Monrovia Firefighter Association will kick off its newest battle: the effort to raise the funds necessary to restore the first piece of mechanized equipment the city ever purchases, a 1917 Seagrave Fire Engine. The “triple” was ordered after the most elegant hotel in town burned to ground in 1916. The fire chief at that time ordered a piece of equipment with the largest engine which had the lowest pumping capability (One wonders why). The Seagrave (don’t call it a truck - it is a pumper which makes it an engine - trucks merely carry stuff) engine was donated to the association after it was determined that it was indeed, Monrovia’s

own. While currently in a state of disrepair, the engine has changed hand many times and saw service in several communities including Flintridge, it was even in the famous collection at Harrah’s in Reno. Ultimately it ended up in private hands were it was stripped of most of its more valuable collectables. These will need to be replicated in some way. At the annual pancake breakfast, the association will begin the campaign to raise the funds necessary to restore the engine which has a working name of “Tommy” in honor of Tommy Knowles. Knowles was the Monrovia Firefighter who, in retirement, became a sort of Johnny Appleseed of Cali-

fornia Poppies sprinkling their seeds wherever he went. As usual the proceeds of the pancake breakfast will go to support the firefighter’s local charities, but a special fund is being established to fund the work on “Tommy.” Firefighters will be passing the boot for support on Saturday, May 14. The pancake breakfast begins at 7 a.m. and continues until 11 a.m. For only $4, you will be served pancakes and sausages with a beverage at station 1 on Lemon Avenue between Myrtle and Ivy. There will also be a junior firefighter’s challenge and bouncers for the kids. It is a great way to begin the Monrovia Day festivities.

Ths is the 1917 Sewagrave Engine the day it rolled off the assembly line in Ohio. It needs a great deal of work to bring it back to these glory days and the Monrovia Firefighters association is dedicated to doing that without any use of public money. For this, they need the help of the community. -Courtesy photo
